8 Symptoms of a Low Vibration to Look Out For

We are all energetic beings, made up of light energy, and the movement of this energy creates what is known as our frequency vibration.  Our energy can move at a very high vibrational frequency, which will bring us more health, happiness and prosperity, or at a very low vibrational frequency, which will bring us the opposite.  With that in mind, there are a few symptoms of a low vibration to let us know when our energy has dipped too far.

Take a look over this list of symptoms of a low vibration.  Keep in mind, we all will experience items on this list from time to time, and that is ok.

Do not feel bad or guilty if you are experiencing these symptoms, or have experienced them in the past, because it is very normal for us to occasionally find ourselves in a low vibrational state. The purpose of this list isn’t to make anyone feel bad, but rather to offer information on how to identify a low vibration, so that we can take steps to raise our vibrations and lead happier, healthier and more prosperous lives.

At the end of this article will be a few suggestions of energetic work you can do during low times in order to raise your vibration.  It is a short list, but it’s a good one to start with if you’re looking for more information.

Symptoms of a Low Vibration

1. Wearing mostly root chakra colors:

Blacks, browns, grays and reds are all colors of the protective root chakra, which is the lowest vibrational chakra in the body.  While there is nothing wrong with wearing these colors in moderation, if you find that you usually or only wear these colors it may be an indication that you are in a low vibrational state.  People often wear these colors unconsciously in low vibrational times to protect themselves when they are in a “survival state.”

2. Significant debt or poverty:

People with a strong, high vibrational frequency typically have abundance in their lives.  While they may not necessarily be “rich” or “wealthy,” they will feel that their needs are met and that they don’t have to struggle.  If you feel like you are struggling financially to survive, this may simply be an indication of a low vibration.

3. Illness, particularly chronic illness:

Illness is one of the common symptoms of a low vibration.   Disease is typically a manifestation of negative, stressful thinking that has been transformed into a condition of the body.

A clever way that I’ve heard it explained before is that disease is “dis”-“ease,” or a lack of ease in one’s body.  While short, infrequent illnesses usually demonstrate a small hiccup in one’s vibration, long, chronic diseases are generally due to significant blockages in one’s vibrational energy.

4. Insomnia (inability to sleep at night):

Sleep is one way that we connect strongly to the universe on a daily basis.  In a semi or unconscious state, we revert back into resonance more closely with the oneness of the universe. Having insomnia often means that the body and soul are having a hard time connecting with the oneness, and it is likely caused by anxiety (a low vibrational emotion).

5. Frequent accidents:

Accidents almost always occur when we aren’t “going with the flow,” which is to move in a harmonious way with the universe.  If you find that you are getting into many accidents (of any type), this is an indication that you may be dealing with a low vibration, due to pushing against your natural energetic currant.

6. Significant/multiple injuries:

Along the same lines as the accidents above, frequent injuries are also symptoms of a low vibration due to not going with the flow, and unbalanced thinking.

7. Dysfunctional relationships:

People in a high vibrational state tend to have pleasant relationships with their loved ones, friends, neighbors and  coworkers.  While one or two “dysfunctional” relationships may not be much to worry about, if you find that many of the relationships in your life are strained, you may be suffering from a low vibration.

8. Excessive dandruff:

This is a sign that your crown chakra is blocked and your line of communication with the higher self isn’t clear.  Your crown chakra is the energy center at the top of your head that receives love and light from the universe. When it is blocked, severe dandruff can appear.

We all have the capacity to experience low vibrational moments.  It is very, very common.  So, if you find that you experience some of these symptoms only once in awhile, don’t worry about it too much.  Our vibrations change moment to moment, and we’re all allowed to go up and down the scale.

However, if you find that you are experiencing some of these symptoms for long periods of time, you may be interested in doing some energetic work to raise your vibration in order to make your life more pleasant. Fortunately, there are a number of easy things you can do to start to raise your vibration.

If you think you might be stuck in a low vibration, it’s a good idea to start meditating daily in order to quickly reconnect with the universe.  You can also do some energetic work with gemstones and color, and you can burn sage in your home to clear out negative energy around you.

Please go easy on yourself when you are suffering from symptoms of a low vibration.  They are simply signs that are meant to show you that you are in a disconnected state, nothing more.  We all experience low vibrations from time to time and they are temporary states.

Take care of yourself in low vibrational times, attend to your needs and try out some strategies to raise your vibration, and you will find that these times become less severe and less frequent.

All the best,

Andrea 🙂

    I feel low vibration is an orientation itself, that conflicts come from different vibrations trying to get together. I’ll never feel totally comfortable with high vibrations, though I like to visit there.❤️

    I really enjoyed this article! The dandruff one was very interesting to me but I took it as we still are physical, human beings, and while things like this CAN indicate some sort of spiritual imbalance, it necessarily doesn’t always mean that just because you have dandruff that your crown chakra is blocked off. I have it and my crown chakra is very active but I had to find balance because it got out of hand. I just have sensitive skin.

    The thing that I really agree with is the wearing of darker colors and not really realizing it. When I was younger, I was vibrating at a lower frequency because I was in so much pain and felt alone, dealing with growing pains and depression. I ALWAYS wore black and it felt protective to me. As my frequency rose with age, I fell away from wearing it ALL the time. I remember I couldn’t stand to wear black on some days and I still feel this way. I love colors, now when I used to hate them with a passion. I loved this list. Thank you. ♥

    Thanks Stephanie:) Yes, the dandruff one is the most highly contested on that list-so I hear where you are coming from! Like you, I too used to always wear black. It’s a good color to use in specific situations (especially those that warrant protection) but the other colors can be so beneficial too, can’t they? Much love. XO, Andrea

    You lost me at dandruff too. So what, does Selsun Blue and Head and Shoulders raise vibrational frequencies? You must work for Proctor and Gamble. You guided us toward defensiveness by preying on our insecurities thus lowering our energies further. Selling product much? I’m calling it an Ad-icle…

    I wear lots of black but i have high vibration maybe because in my eyes the color black is a representation of silence and stability

    Hi Kevin, I like to wear black too…it can be helpful in some areas of life and it can also be useful in amplifying the aspects of other colors! I’ve just found that people who are down tend to wear a lot of black in the dark times, and as such it can be helpful to add some color to the mix to elevate our spirits when this is the case <3

    OK. Many saints and otherwise worthy people have been poor and have had major health problems. The real test is whether the person is emanating love from their hearts. I do agree that root chakra colors are often worn by energetic vampires, but otherwise your list is overly simple. Love, being love, loving all, being compassionate, that is what it is really about. You will also know by whether their deeds and words are uplifting and kind. There you have it.

    I beg to differ. I think a lot of the things you describe can be humans of the highest vibration. For instance, insomnia. Indigo children and star seeds are prone to insomnia and they unequivocally are of a higher vibration. Also, health has nothing to do with our vibration. Souls enter this plane as we know to be earth and the present time with a soul path that OFTEN times lays out a plan for sickness or disability. This is an agreed upon measure before they enter what we understand as our world and there is no negative connotation associated. Suffering is a part of this world because it’s a part of the human experience. It is not a negative because no experience we are afforded in this lifetime can be such. We are LUCKY to feel love in the same way we are lucky to feel pain. It means we are alive and afforded to experience which many are not. At the most simple rebuttal of your theory, colors worn express zero about a person. That is a stereotype merely created by near sighted humans. Say for instance, the most highly vibrational person, works in fashion or an otherwise similar field. Black is a staple and easy and many times can represent your respect for your field, but lack of hypersensitivity to fit in with all the trends. I think this whole thing is a ploy because you say “go easy on yourself when you are suffering from low vibrations” as if there needs to be a solution. Any high vibrational person has moments of weakness, yes, but does not need to buy a solution from a website. We have it within us. So I do not intend to offend or discredit your findings or beliefs but I personally find these thoughts not only unwarranted and inadvisable but potentially harmful to those who who are innocently speaking truth that can be found in an uniformed place.

    I can see how dandruff relates! Its usually a manifestation of an imbalanced diet which can directly affect ones vibration. Here is why as well: http://wp.me/p233zY-rE

    This was a n interesting perspective to read off from. I do agree about the scalp and dandruff, the crown chakra may need to receive more positive information.

    As for colours, we often go with what society has viewed colours as for as long as we can remember. Dark shades being negative while bright shades being positive. Colour is a shade, we must look above duality to balance out colours. We are taught to see the Yin and Yang before looking at the overall possibilities. For instance, one who prefers to wear black everyday is seen as “gloomy” and “goth” to another who wears bright colours. The reality is the one wearing many shades of black or grey does reiki healing (Traditional Japanese holistic healing) on people and the one wearing colours is hiding a mask always judging others. We cannot define a person by what colours they choose to wear. In Wiccan religion, the colour black is said to repel against negativity. We all have our own views and Truth to find, as long as we do not harm others and do our best to improve our life in the trinity of the mind, soul, and body, that is what will matter in the end. Looks are simply like a boo cover, some are more expressive while others don’t feel the need to express themselves outwardly.

    Dandruff? Struggling financially? I know many truly loving beings of light whonare struggling day by day. I believe the root cause is an unjust system, not poor people themselves. Check out the book “Dispelling Wetiko” by Paul Levy. Poor shaming does not raise vibrations, and if you want to reach more than an upper middle class audience you better loom into and reach out to the working class.

    Thank you for this article, Andrea. As with any topic, there are exceptions to the rule, but unfortunately, it can be very difficult for some to realize they’re not operating at the highest vibrational level.

    It looks like you’ve got a tough crowd here! :-p I understand that not everyone wants to face the truth or is ready to really take that good, hard look in the mirror. It’s easier for some to say there’s nothing I can do. It’s not my fault. You must be saying something right to bring this kind of controversy. Keep doing what you’re doing. The commenters on here might not be ready to hear what you’re saying or learn from your guidance, but you are reaching some and perhaps one day these words will resonate to a few of these negative commenters. I commend you on the showing of love and kindness to those responding <3

    I would agree that these negative things are all symptoms of poor diet, abuse in childhood, vaccine injuries, and being around abusive people in adulthood too. One does not just simply choose to be ill or poor, it’s deeper than that. I personally love black, but I also wear many other colors. It’s important to be kind when writing certain things–because they can deeply affect someone who is feeling alone in their situation.
