Good Vibes

Had a dream last night about love. A girl came up to me and said she was having problems with understanding why the opposite of love is hate. In my dream, I told her love is a lot of things. It’s an energy, making a connection, it’s wholeness and intimacy. I told her to pick love apart and then find the opposites of those.

I had been having a problem describing the concept of vibration to people, and this morning, I realized my dream gave me the key.

Let me walk you through it.

Imagine a piece of paper or a white board with a line drawn across the middle. That line represents feeling OK, feeling neutral. If someone asked you how you were doing, you’d simply say “fine” without any emotions. Above that line would be love and the concepts that go along with it. Below that line would be the opposites of them.

Here are my thoughts:

  • Unconditional Love
  • Compassion
  • Wholeness
  • Joy
  • Gratitude
  • Harmony
  • Expansion
  • Lightness
  • Contentment

Then a line labeled “feeling OK.”

Then roughly the opposites of love.

  • Boredom
  • Restlessness
  • Frustration
  • Anger
  • Sadness
  • Guilt
  • Depression
  • Shame
  • Pain, despair, anguish

What I’ve created above is a shorthand way of talking about our emotions. Above the line are emotions that are a high vibration. We feel good when we feel them, so we want to stay there and keep feeling them. I believe these higher emotions are what we truly want in life, but when we don’t know how to get there, we settle for substitutes below the line.

The problems is, those emotions below the line are a low vibration, so we don’t feel good when we feel them. We want to stop feeling them, but sometimes we can’t get past using physical things and people to try to feel better. We are rewarded, because they do work for a while — drugs, alcohol, sex, busyness, drama, distractions, new romantic relationships. Even spiritual devices used solely for that purpose work but don’t keep us feeling good for long.

We have to raise our vibrations ourselves by not running from the opposites of love because those opposites are what lead us back. If we stay with those emotions and feel them and relax into them, we allow their energy to release and let us go. They are what hold us down, hold us under. Without them, we naturally rise to love, and love is always there, always waiting for us.
