5 Ways to Elevate Your Vibration

by Dr. Mike Isseks, D.C.

Whether you’re aware of it or not, people pick up on, and respond to you based on your vibration. It is of the utmost importance that you are able to check in and have an awareness of what you’re putting out to the world…energetically speaking.


You should be able to recall at least one time in your life (hopefully many) where you felt unstoppable, amazing, powerful, successful, etc. For me it was at my wedding. Surrounded by LOVE, my amazing wife, and all of our closest friends and family. For those few hours I felt perfectly present with zero worry, stress, or anxiety. I felt a massive amount of gratitude and love, and had a sense of being surrounded by all things beautiful. Since then, I have referred to this high-vibrational state as a “natural high” because I haven’t been able to put that specific feeling into words.


This is the vibrational state in which I strive to live my life, every day. If I ever feel like I’m drifting from this, I remember some of the following important action steps to bring me back:

  1. LOVE ~ Visualize those you love the most. Bring them to the forefront of your consciousness. I immediately think of the birth of my son, the strength of my wife, and the overflow of love that washed over me when he arrived into this world.
  2. GRATITUDE ~ Simply be grateful for what you have. Whether it be people or things in your life that you have taken for granted…acknowledge them. We all have people in our lives that we care about and who we just “expect to be there”. We may go lengths without reaching out or connecting because of these lives we call busy. I challenge you to call a friend or family member you haven’t spoken to in a while and let them know how grateful you are for them.
  3. GENEROSITY ~ It feels good to give. It feels even better to give without the expectation of reciprocity. Giving is a great way increase vibration while while greed does the opposite.
  4. MEDITATION ~ When you realize that the moment that matters most is this NOW moment, your life will change. When you meditate you are bringing your awareness to this very moment. Here are some things that will help keep you there; a) Tune into the sounds of your environment, a chirping bird, a horn sounding, etc. b) Pay attention to how your body is feeling i.e. muscle tightness, emotions that may be eliciting a visceral response, areas where you are feeling fluidity or relaxation c) Observe your thoughts, what’s coming through? No need to act on them at this very moment, simply acknowledge them and let them pass by.
  5. AFFIRMATIONS ~ Use positive statements to affirm what you are looking to attract into your life. These are daily statements that you desire to be true, and you state them out loud as if they already are. The

Health TRIAGE

By Dr. Mike Isseks, D.C.

Your health should be, without a shadow of a doubt, your most valuable asset. Imagine for a moment that you possessed all the material things that you could ever want, yet you’re unable to enjoy them because you haven’t prioritized your health as you should have in the first place.


You might hear the word Triage and instantly associate it with a hospital. Triage is defined as the sorting and allocation of care to patients according to a system of priorities, to maximize the number of successful outcomes. In short, putting whoever and whatever is most urgent, first.
This type of prioritization should be widespread and applied to the optimization of our health. If this is done correctly, the end goal should be impeccable health.


We run into a problem as we see our society’s priorities getting skewed. We see people putting money at the top of their list, maybe family second and health a mere 3rd or even further down the list.


Furthermore, it’s extremely common to see people covering up their pain or problems, or “treating them” with medications as opposed to doing everything they can to figure the root cause of their problem. Nine times out of ten, if their health was their number one priority they may have avoided these hurdles altogether.


If there is a time to start making your health a priority, and bump it all the way up to #1… it’s not next week, or next month, it’s right NOW. Make this change in your priorities and I can assure you you’ll be seeing some positive shifts in your life!

DROP INTO YOUR HEART-BRAIN CONNECTION

By Dr. Eric Pinto

Our neuro-biology is wired for survival. 

Our consciousness is wired for expression. 

Think about the last time you watched a thrilling movie, and you know the main character was in a dangerous situation. 

You might have felt your physiology react as if you were in danger, yourself. The hair on the back of your neck stands up, your breath shortens, your body temperature may rise, and you’re anticipating something to react to. 

(If you feel your body doing this as you’re imagining it…take 3 deep breathes and continue reading )

Thankfully, we have these unconscious responses wired into us, for the benefit of our survival as a species. However, these mechanisms can directly compete with our ability and desire to be expressive human beings…

Why is that? 

The answer is lack of heart-brain coherence. 

I know Dr. Dispenza fans, or those familiar with the Heart-Math Institute, are probably nodding their heads with an emphatic YES, right now. 

Those that are unfamiliar, may not yet be aware that our hearts are far more than powerful blood pumping machines. Our hearts are highly intelligent organs, that generate the largest electromagnetic field from our body, when in a state of alignment and ease. Feelings of gratitude, joy, unity, and selflessness are scientifically shown to positively impact your field’s expression. 

Consciously striving to impact your heart’s electromagnetic expression, along with shifting your mental intention, can have dramatic effects on your health, happiness, and expression. This action, is what is called creating heart-brain coherence. 

Side effects (benefits) of heart-brain coherence are lowered blood pressure, decreased feelings of anxiety, stronger immune system, increased feelings of happiness and gratitude, and heightened creativity/mental clarity. 

In today’s fast paced, information-hungry society, you may not be surprised that coherence can be a fleeting event, and chronic stress, the antagonist to coherence, leads to many serious health conditions.

Now let’s get to the part where I help you make heart-brain coherence happen. 

Sit comfortably with your chest tall and expanded. Take deep breaths, inhaling from the base of your spine, moving up towards the peak of your head. On the exhales, continue the cycle going down the front of your body. Repeat. 

Close your eyes, and picture the future that you desire to achieve. Maybe you’re thinking about life after quarantine, where you’re re-connecting with friends and giving them a tight 10-second hug. Now, feel the gratitude and joy you would be experiencing in this situation. Linger in these feelings as long as possible, as they are what move you toward coherence. 

As you mentally venture back to your environment, it is key that you remain connected to the elevated emotions, as much as possible. 

Be kind and have patience with yourself, as the outside world will undoubtedly challenge your coherence. The good news is, you can repeat this process as needed. Practice makes perfect!

Lastly, take note on how your perspective of the world changes, as you shift your biology from survival to expression. It may …
