10 ways to raise your vibration

Everyone and every thing on earth and in the universe at large is made up of energy vibrating at different frequencies. It is mental energy that motivates and inspires us, it is emotional energy that affects our state of emotional wellness, and it is our physical energy that gets us moving, physically. I’m sure you have heard how mental, emotional, and physical energies tend to affect each other. They all need to be in harmony, vibrating on a high frequency, for one to experience total wellness and joy.

When you vibrate on a low frequency you identify with sad and negative things. Your body lacks energy and it is difficult to see things positively. When you vibrate on a high frequency you feel gratitude, joy, and complete wellness. You attract positive things and wonderful experiences through the laws of attraction. Giving out positive messages (vibes) returns those same sort of vibes back to you, and these positive vibes affect all areas of your life until it becomes truly magical.

As bearers of light and love, it was never intended that we should be vibrating at low frequencies which in turn lowers the vibration of the entire planet. It is important that we recognise the role we play as humans on earth. We have the power to raise our vibrational frequency and that of our entire planet. It begins with you.

So how does one go about raising one’s vibration? Here are a few tips.

Become conscious of your thoughts at every moment and remove the negative ones. When negative thoughts cross your mind, try to turn them into positive thoughts. Repeat positive re-affirmations throughout your day e.g “today is going to be a highly productive day” ,  “I will succeed in everything I do”. When confronted with a problem or a negative, accept it, welcome it and then turn it into positive e.g “My first networking event wasn’t well attended this time. With a few positive changes and a better marketing approach it will surely be successful next time.”

Fear is one of humanity’s greatest obstacles to peace of mind and pure joy. The spirit of fear destroys so many things and most of the time it distorts the natural flow of things. With our constantly changing faster paced world, there are many stressors that lead to worry and fear. Fear of poverty, fear of illness, fear of rejection, even fear of love! Perhaps because we are (again) afraid to get hurt. Sometimes we need to let ourselves go. We must make a conscious effort to release fear from our minds and hearts. We need to simply BE.

Gratitude is of a very high vibration. Being able to express gratitude takes one to a higher vibrational frequency. Give thanks for your life on earth every morning you wake up. Look for the blessings in your life and give thanks. Even if you do this five minutes of every day you will notice a great change on your energy field.

Abundance is associated with high energy vibration. If you give more you will recieve more. It doesn’t always have to be money. It could be your time and energy used to help someone or something on our planet. Giving selflessly is a sure way to raise your frequency.

Take some time out of your day and dedicate it to meditation. Simply close your eyes and breathe deeply in and out. Pay attention to your breadth and allow yourself to “free your mind” of all thoughts especially the lower vibration thoughts. Use some of your meditation time to visualize positive and beautiful things that will in turn bring peace to your mind and joy to your heart. Through meditation one may even discover hidden spiritual talents! Don’t let these discoveries cause fear (as stated in point 2). Free your mind.

Such as a spiritual teacher, a like – minded friend who won’t judge you or your thoughts, a loving pet, even positive plants, flowers and trees in your garden. This may mean saying no to a toxic relationship. Spend time doing things you love and that bring you joy. It
could be art, craft, gardening, dancing, the list is endless. Engage yourself with people and things that bring you peace and happiness.

There is low vibration music and then there is music that takes one to the highest of vibrations. Choose carefully and wisely and feed your soul with music that uplifts your spirit. Dancing to happy music is a great way to raise your energy levels both physically and spiritually.

Everything we eat contributes to our energy field and either makes us slow or sluggish (lower vibration) or makes us light and full of energy. Raw foods are at the very top of the vibrational chart full of vitality and nutrition with the ability to heal. Eliminating processed foods, white flour, gluten, non organci meats, pesticides and chemicals from our diet promotes clarity of mind and spirit, giving high energy levels and optimum health. Many slaughter animals are multreated, fed chemicals and toxins therefore their meat is of a very low vibration full of hurt and sadness. By consuming these meats we transfer these low vibration energies unto ourselves. Eating a plant based diet is a great way to raise your vibration.

Together, we are one. By helping another to raise their vibration, we all rise. Be loving to another. Be helpful and caring not because you want anything in return but because you are giving selflessly and in the name of humanity. Your actions may change someone’s life and the gratitude they will have towards you will radiate and push your energy to an even higher frequency. Give and recieve.

There is beauty everywhere. Even in the so called ugliest of things there is beauty to be found. From the moment you wake up until you go to bed, focus on what is beautiful around you. Zoom in on that flower blooming by the roadside. Enjoy the sight of that mother carrying her child. Appreciate someone’s handmade products and comment on how beautiful they are. Add some color to your wardrobe. Create your own beauty from within and let it spread out to surround you and to touch others.

It is that simple! Be happy! Enjoy yourself! Think positive and do right.

Wishing you much love and light ❤

Music for Kids!


Being exposed to music so early in my life must have had a huge impact on my brain and level of creativity. I have always lived with this huge “bundle of talents” and although I’m sometimes a little quirky, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Having my children and being lucky enough to sometimes see through their eyes, I have come to understand the importance of early childhood development and the importance of music in this development. It is unfortunate that our system doesn’t take music more seriously or make it a more important part of our school curriculum. It not only develops creativity, discipline and spatial intelligence; early music development is also linked to better social development and is an amazing avenue for self expression. Music can help one through trauma and tragedy (I can testify to this). It inspires, uplifts, and heals the soul.

I have been inspired over and over again into going ahead with this journey into the world of teaching kids music. Just like my brother Waleed and I dreamt about all those years ago. 
Summer vacation is about to start and I am excited!

Music workshops for children starts Wednesday 13th July at Kiddygram Montessori in North Dzorwulu for ages ONE YEAR AND UP. Children under 3 must be accompanied. During the summer vacation, workshops will be available Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10am to 1pm and we will be covering areas such as Rhythm and percussion, Learning sounds, voice, and melody.

If you live in Accra and would like more information about my music workshops please email gogreenbutterfly@gmail.com or call 0247900791.

One love!!!

Until the end of time…

Heart of love to family and friends of Jehad Ashkar ❤ you just ran across my mind so I wrote this poem for you. Stay strong. ❤ ❤ ❤

Just over the rainbow
Somewhere around the corner
I am there.
Through whispers of love
And beautiful memories,
Through songs that
When played, remind you of me,
A word, a phrase
That I would have said,
A time, a place,
my voice in your head…
I am less than a millisecond away
Only in a different day.
Another place
Along the way
Never ever too far away.
Just call my name
And there I’d be.
I am SAFE in the
LOVE that you’ve  given to me.

Until the end of time.



I am so grateful to everyone who came out to support me last Friday at the “Music Messenger” album release party. It had been raining but that didn’t stop us from having the time of our lives!

As I was born in the 80s, I decided to use a Vinyl and Cassette theme for the party.





The Vinyl backdrop we created gave a wow factor to our photo shoot and I can’t wait for all the lovely photos which I will be posting here as soon as I recieve them.

Performances were great! And I was so happy to present a new act to my audience and they loved him. His name is Ayisi Ican – a talented young man who reminds me of Wyclef when he does his vocal delivery.

We had a raffle draw and gave out some amazing prizes. Not to mention all the dancing in the rain. It was such an awesome experience. A happy night full of love.
