Why Fear (+ Low Vibration Emotions) Ruin Your Frequency
Solutions to problems and inspiration exist on higher frequencies. It's worth knowing how low vibration emotions may keep us away from what we want.

The Relationship Between Fear, Constriction & Frequency
Winter is a time of constriction, and this mimics what fear does to our vibrations. Constrict. Immobilize. Thriving vibrations are expansive and fluid. Fear is one of the worst emotions for frequency health since it carries such a low vibration. When we feel fear our frequency is influenced by the low vibration, and slows down as well.
When I'm afraid I notice my body reacts very similarly to when I'm cold. There's an ease that leaves, my shoulders turn inward, and I clench down to fortify myself. You can feel how this takes more resources from the body vs laying under a tree on a warm summer evening watching fireflies. If we want to work on just one way to raise vibration, addressing beliefs or unmetabolized past experiences that cause fear, is a high impact place to start.
Imagine with me for a moment that you have a vibrational frequency. That you've always had a frequency. Frequency is influenced by things like the way our inner voice lines up with our actions, the emotions we feel, and what we do when no one is watching.
Fear is a low vibration that constricts the physical body, and thus, frequency. What is happening in the physical body is often an indication of what is happening to our vibrational frequency. To put fear in perspective, using a vibrational frequency chart of emotions contentment is a medium vibration. (One down from contentment is boredom which enters the low end of the vibrational frequency chart.) Freedom is a high vibration.
Low Vibration Frequencies Oscillate Slowly
Robust and highly magnetic vibrational frequencies vibrate rapidly. Weak frequencies vibrate slowly. Strong frequencies give us a shield of sorts. Similar to what the immune system does for the body. When something is vibrating rapidly it's hard for other things to enter its field if they are moving slower (i.e low vibration). Looking at the image below imagine trying to poke a hand in that ring without getting burned.
Alternatively, picture children jumping rope. Two children are holding opposite ends of the rope. They are spinning it for a third child to jump in. The faster they spin it the more likely the third child is to fail at getting in the flow. If they spin it slowly it's easy for the third child to get in the rhythm. We want our vibrational frequency to oscillate rapidly so it only syncs with other high vibe emotions and experiences; not just anyone should be able to jump in.
Fear (and other low vibration emotions) slow frequency way down, and emotional states that vibrate slowly, like frustration, worry, overwhelm and depression start to match our vibrational frequency. We start pulling in more of them. If I have a low vibration, the emotions in closest range can be doubt and anxiety. If I raise my vibration by connecting with a good friend, I move up the vibrational frequency chart of emotions to bored instead of depressed.
Solutions Exist on Higher Frequency Bandwidths
Let's say then I take two days off work to go kayaking. Smelling fresh air, dragging my hand in the water, I become a bit optimistic about solving an issue I couldn't see a solution to before. Because the solution always existed on a higher frequency bandwidth than I was previously on. I just had to raise my vibration to find it. This is the journey of frequency. Raising vibration is what to focus on to solve issues. Spending hours thinking about how to solve something while in a low vibration will likely result in lateral move solutions.
It's about being mindful of our vibration, and consciously attempting to raise ourselves to higher and higher frequency "channels" where the ideas and feelings we experience are higher tier. It's all waiting for us on the proverbial high shelf. We just need to expand enough to reach it. Fear pretty much guarantees we will be rummaging on the bottom shelf with the cheap wine for inspiration- and as we all know from college; there's nothing down there but a headache.

Effects of Low Vibration Emotions on Frequency
Our vibrational frequency bounces around during the day. Imagine a heart rate monitor, but a bit more erratic. Little fears are like blips on the monitor. They take us to a flatline at worst, or a deep valley at best. It takes time for our frequencies to recover from fear. Sometimes they won't recover in a lifetime if an individual attempts to suppress trauma or PTSD.
My father admits he was never the same after serving two tours in Vietnam. Unprocessed events in the body lead to emotional disturbance, which disrupts a radiant frequency. I could feel his wounds play out daily as a child, and watched him glue himself to the TV, most likely to distract himself from what he didn't know how to process. His best friend died. He had to kill someone who came at him with a knife while he was sleeping.
That stuff sticks around if you don’t have help, or understand that feeling the pain is how to move it out of the body. The emotional effects of war ripple through society generations after the event. His wounds slowly became my wounds as I internalized his lack of attention toward me. Disturbed frequencies train disturbed and unregulated frequencies. No one is at fault. Our society is just on the brink of learning to value, regulate and consciously program our vibrational frequencies.
Fear is a large nervous system disruptor. You can raise your vibration in tiny steps if you don't want to face reprogramming larger fears yet. Consider removing small nervous system disruptors from your life. What gives your nervous system a jolt during the day? I eliminated financial market apps from my life for a few months. I find markets fascinating, but they zing my nervous system. (Cause, you know, things aren’t going well.)
After eliminating them, I fought through urges to check them for about two weeks until peace kicked in. After a purge of about three months I mindfully added one app back in, and allow myself to check it only at a pace friendly to my nervous system. Oddly, I found a way to raise my vibration by eliminating an activity I thought brought me happiness.
