Tip 1: Drink Lots of Water Throughout the Day.

The first tip I have for you to shift for the first time tonight is to drink plenty of water throughout the day.

It is said that drinking water “raises one’s vibrations” (i.e., gets one into a positive mood and makes one less negative).

Raising vibrations is said to make it easier for people to shift. Drinking water, of course, keeps you hydrated.

Shifting can be mentally exhausting, so it’s important to stay hydrated when attempting to shift so that your body isn’t exhausted if/when you shift.

Drinking water is also beneficial to your health, so it’s a good idea to get into the habit of drinking plenty of it on a daily basis.

Tip 2: Choose a Shifting Method and Stick to It.

There are lots of different reality shifting methods you can choose from, from sleep to awake methods, each will have its pros and cons.

You can try different methods, but I strongly advise that once you find one that works for you, you stick with it for at least 5-10 tries.

A method may not work the first time, but if you try it again and again, you will eventually succeed. For example, the raven method did not work the first time I tried it.

But I persisted, trying again and again, and it now works very well for me.

Also, don’t get frustrated and try method after method on the same day/night.

If one day things don’t work out the way you want to, it’s perfectly fine! Don’t be upset about it. This will instill in you the belief that you will fail at every method, which is not ideal.

It’s okay to be disappointed; just don’t dwell on it.

Tip 3: Meditate for 5-10 Minutes Before Attempting to Shift.

The third tip on the list is to sit down and meditate before starting any shifting method.

On a daily basis, your vibration reflects how you feel. It can be increased or decreased based on your actions and thoughts.

If you want to successfully shift, you must learn how to raise your vibration.

We saw previously that we can raise our vibrations by drinking plenty of water throughout the day.

We can also raise our vibrations by meditating. Here’s how:

You are a naturally high-vibration being, but your negative thoughts and beliefs prevent you from vibrating fully.

When you meditate, you clear your mind of all thoughts.

This is why meditation is so effective at redirecting your vibration.

As a result, you can restore your vibration to its natural high-vibration state.

So, before starting any shifting method, you should meditate for at least 510 minutes.

Tip 4: Take Frequent Breaks.

As previously stated, attempting to shift and successfully shifting can be extremely exhausting.

It is perfectly acceptable to take breaks! Don’t worry about losing all of your progress if you take a break; you won’t.

Instead of attempting to shift every day, try every other day.

I’ve heard numerous people describe passing out as a result of overworking their minds; it’s critical to allow your mind and body to rest from time to time.

You should practice self-care in your free time to take care of your mind and body.

Tip 5: Listen to Subliminals.

This one is sort of optional, but it is extremely useful.

If you find yourself having limiting beliefs and/or negative thoughts about your ability to shift or shifting in general, you should listen to subliminals!

Subliminals are tracks that have hidden affirmations in them that your conscious mind cannot comprehend but your subconscious mind can.

They are said to help with shifting because they remove limiting beliefs that prevent you from shifting. Here is the track I used.

However, keep in mind that subs are not a replacement for doing actual work. They are a tool to assist you, not an actual method.

Tip 6: Don’t Compare Yourself with Others.

Don’t compare your shifting journey to the journeys of others.

It’s fine to click on those “I shifted!” posts and videos on YouTube and feel happy for the person, but don’t tell yourself that you’re not as good because their shifting journey took a couple of weeks and yours took over a month.

Also, don’t expect to shift on the first or even the first few attempts. If you do, then congratulations!

But shifting realities is a process that requires practice, but if you keep trying, you’ll get there! But don’t forget to give it your best effort!

The more you doubt yourself and your abilities, the less likely you are to achieve your goal. Doubts are completely normal; it’s what we do as humans.

However, as long as you maintain hope and remind yourself that you are capable of shifting, you will be more than capable of doing so.

Tip 7: Don’t Give Up!

The final and most important tip on how to shift for the first time is to not give up!

It’s normal to have negative feelings from time to time. Just don’t dwell on those feelings, and if you find yourself thinking something negative, try to see the bright side of things.

There is so much waiting for you in your desired reality that it isn’t worth giving up and losing all that!

Make a list of the aspects of your desired reality that you are most excited about the next time you are feeling unmotivated and have doubts about shifting.

This will help you raise your vibrations, which are crucial to shifting to your desired reality!

Also, when you “fail” to shift, don’t think of it as a failure; instead, think of it as a step closer each time.

You’ve got this! It’s not difficult if some people do it by accident; all you have to do is believe.
