I don’t know if you feel the same way, but for me, 2020 has been an incredibly challenging year. For the first four months of the COVID-19 pandemic I found myself in disbelief, experiencing powerful emotions, the most prominent being that of anger. I started doing something I don’t usually do because I’m an empath. I read and watched the news. And I didn’t just read or listen to the mainstream news, I read alternative news sources, sources that were claimed to be from the alt-right, radical left, sources by people who have been claimed to be disgraced or discredited, you name it. I wanted to get everyone’s side of the story so that I can make up my own mind about what I believe and I respect everyone’s right to do the same without calling them out for spreading ‘misinformation.’ I have worked in social media marketing for 12 years and I have never experienced the level of censorship by the media, the government, Big Tech and Big Pharma, that I do right now. I found myself so far down the rabbit hole of conspiracy theories about what is really going on during this pandemic that I ended up with the worst bout of anxiety I have ever experienced in my life. I still don’t know who I should trust for information about the Coronavirus, but I decided that enough was enough and I needed to do something to raise my vibration and fast!

I have been both an associate and friend of author, sound healer, and Conscious Living Teacher, Dawn James, for ten years. I am the senior editor for her company, Publish and Promote, so I know that she is a very intelligent woman of the utmost integrity and I have watched her create more than one successful business for herself with her knowledge, determination, perseverance, and hard work. I have also experienced her sound healing workshop in which she practices therapeutic healing with Tibetan and crystal singing bowls and it is divine. I wish I could attend one every day. Although I have never been one to totally immerse myself in “woo-woo land,” I do believe that we, as human beings, are made of energy and that we do have the power to create the reality that we want to live in. But how do we do that? How can we change our perception of the world at a time when it is an exceedingly difficult place to live in?

After reading Dawn’s ‘Raise Your Vibration’ trilogy, beginning with Raise Your Vibration, Transform Your Life: A Practical Guide for Attaining Better Health, Vitality and Inner PeaceHow to Raise The Vibration Around You: Volume 1 – Working with the 4 Elements to Create Healthy and Harmonious Living Spaces, and Raise The Vibration Between Us: Forgiveness, Karma, and Freedom, I feel more calm, grounded and positive than I have felt in months. However, I am also just a little overwhelmed by how much work I must do to change my life so that I am living in a much more conscious and positive state of being. I have started to make some changes, but I know I have a long way to go, starting with my own self-talk.

In the first book in Dawn James’ trilogy (which I read ten years ago for the first time), Raise Your Vibration, Transform Your Life: A Practical Guide for Attaining Better Health, Vitality and Inner Peace, Dawn tells us how we can raise our vibration within ourselves by making conscious choices about what we eat, drink, breathe, and where and with whom we spend our time. She gives us examples of and exercises for how we can do these things and leaves us with key messages from each chapter. She talks about breath work, essential oils, crystals and gemstones, sound and colour, time spent in nature (which has been my saviour) and in silence and meditation, as well as with positive people. She also reminds us to practice gratitude and forgiveness, and provides the reader with a glossary and references. 

After reading this book again, I was inspired to purchase my own Tibetan singing bowl, a pottery dish in which to put the crystals and gemstones that I have (and I made a list of new ones to purchase) and I placed them on my desk. I also started keeping a gratitude journal again. I usually just give gratitude to God and the Universe out loud every night before I go to bed but now, I am writing it down, and I’m meditating more often and concentrating on my breathing.

In Dawn’s second book, How to Raise The Vibration Around You: Volume 1 – Working with the 4 Elements to Create Healthy and Harmonious Living Spaces, Dawn teaches us how to raise the vibration in our homes through working with the elements of Air, Light, Water and Earth. She covers smell and the olfactory system, air quality, sound and the auditory cortex of the brain, the vibration of water and how to improve water quality at home, as well as eco-friendly ways of cleaning our homes and ourselves. Dawn also explores Earth’s gifts including Himalayan Salt lamps, crystal grids, flowers, and gardening, and presents the reader with some wonderful charts and recipes. 

While reading this book, I was inspired to create a Pinterest board called Raise Your Vibration which you can find on Pinterest and have pinned images/articles that speak to everything that Dawn covers in her books. I may yet organize them into collections when time permits. I also smudged my apartment with white sage, bought some aromatherapy candles, new air-purifying house plants, and am looking into purchasing an Alkaline Spring water system. For me, changing my eating habits and sticking to those changes has always been the most challenging hurdle in my life but I am inspired to try harder. 

Raise The Vibration Between Us: Forgiveness, Karma, and Freedom is a short book that took me less than 24 hours to read. While it may be short, it is perhaps the most important book in this trilogy as Dawn speaks to the significance of forgiveness and what we gain from it, karma and how it affects us as well as how to clear it, and how to create space in our lives for freedom. I have yet to do the homework laid out in this book but I vow to because I know that it is the most powerful work of all that we can do to raise our vibration and transform our lives. 

I am paying it forward by telling you how profoundly life-changing the information in these books could be for you if you read them and then consciously choose to employ at least some of the teachings within them. I am aware that true change doesn’t occur overnight and will not be earth-shattering simply because we purchase some new objects for our home but if those objects can serve to remind us to stay conscious and to keep trying our best to raise our vibration, then I believe they are worth every penny.

There has never been a time on this planet more pertinent than NOW for making a decision to raise our vibration and transform our lives so if you want to purchase these books for yourself or learn more about Dawn James, visit her website at www.dawnjames.ca. I’m proud to have edited Dawn’s autobiography, Unveiled: Autobiography of An Awakened One which will be released in 2021 and I can tell you that it is a fascinating story.

Canadian author, vibrational healer and public speaker (Toastmaster) Dawn James believes that “all you need is within you.” She proves her point most eloquently in her informative, well-researched and helpful guide book, Raise Your Vibration, Transform Your Life: A Practical Guide for Attaining Better Health, Vitality and Inner Peace. In it, Dawn provides her readers with the knowledge they will need to truly raise their vibration in order to transform their lives and she also believes that healing begins with you. Her 20 years of research, interviews and experience is evident on each and every page.

Vibrational frequency is the constant rate of electrical flow that is measurable between two points.” In her book, Dawn covers various subjects and their vibrational frequencies including, the vibration and health connection, making conscious choices, food and drink, detoxification, mass media, breath work, essential oils, chakras, gems and crystals, sound and colour, nature, meditation, gratitude, and forgiveness among other things. She has presented an all-encompassing plan for personal action and included easy to read charts, key messages, tips and exercises that will assist you with your own plan. This is an exceptional physiological, psychological, spiritual and holistic guide book that you will refer to again and again.

Dawn’s chapter on Detoxification was particularly interesting, as was the Brain Waves-Stress-Health Connection which for someone like me who suffers from poor sleep proved to be quite thought-provoking:

“There are four basic brain waves: beta, alpha, theta, and delta, which are linked to different states of brain functioning and different states of consciousness. Each of the four brain waves is good for some activities; however, we can become imbalanced or stressed by overstimulating some brain wave states and ignoring or suppressing others. For instance, if we cannot turn on theta or delta brain waves, we can suffer from insomnia, restlessness and impatience.”

While much of Dawn’s book reads like a text book, I was truly moved by her personal story in the chapter on The Vibration of Forgiveness and concur that it is so true that forgiveness is about personal power and it’s a process for finding peace. The final chapter, Living in Love, contains one of my favourite paragraphs:

“By actively choosing to raise your personal vibration, you are choosing to love yourself by removing stress and regaining vitality, by transcending your ego-mind to your higher mind of Divine Wisdom and by living in harmony to experience oneness with all aspects of yourself. Self-love is like the seed from which love for all others is born.”

Dawn James, who is also formally trained in Reiki and distance healing, and lives on purpose, will be facilitating a Raise Your Vibration workshop in Kingston, Ontario on Saturday, September 18, 2010 from 2pm – 6pm at The Purple Door Books & Metaphysical Gifts. With your workshop fee of $65, you receive a copy of Raise Your Vibration, Transform Your Life and the afternoon promises to be an inspirational one of high vibrations and friendly fellowship! Dawn will teach you the “laws of vibration and how they can be used to repel disease, increase vitality and cultivate inner peace” and you will take home your own personal action plan for transforming your life. She hopes to see you there!
