As you start learning about vibrational energy, it’s natural to evaluate your habits. In truth, there are things we do to raise and lower our vibrational energy throughout each day.

And while energy fluctuations are natural, we really should try to avoid any vibration-lowering habits.

And as much as this pains me to say, drinking coffee is one of those habits.

Coffee drinking does lower your vibration.

Read on to learn more about your own energy and how coffee may be doing you more harm than good. Trust me, this is as difficult for me as it is for you.

What is vibrational energy?

You’ve probably heard and maybe even said the phrase, “Good vibes only.” But most of us only have a basic understanding of what this means. And some mistakenly believe the “vibes” we’re speaking of here are figurative.

There’s actually a lot of science behind this, and we’ll cover it in-depth in another post, but in order to understand how coffee lowers your vibrational energy, you must first understand that you are made of vibrating particles and energy. The same is true for the world around you.

Now, I know what you’re thinking.

Why, then, do things feel solid? And the answer is that the microscopic particles of which you are made are constantly bouncing off of each other and creating resistance.

We can’t see the vibrations because they’re too small, but they are there nonetheless.

When you look at something under a microscope, you’ll see molecules. If you have a stronger microscope, you can see the atoms that make up each molecule. If you break those atoms down, you’ll find protons and electrons. Electrons orbit the protons, which creates a vibration.

So when we talk about raising or lowering our vibrations, we’re actually talking about vibrational speed. Raising your vibration means vibrating at a higher speed.

Knowing this, it’s tempting to think that caffeine would raise your vibration because it gives you a boost of energy. And as much as I’d like to believe that to be true, it’s not.

How coffee lowers your vibration

We tell ourselves that we need coffee for energy, but in the long run, coffee will only deplete your energy. It causes a spike and crash, much like sugar.

But because we need to keep performing, we can’t handle the crashes. And so we become addicted to coffee.

And unfortunately, coffee will lower your vibration again and again. It’s really not the best way to start your day.

According to the measuring process outlined in David Hawkin’s book, Power vs. Force, coffee vibrates at a frequency of 223 out of 1,000.

Now, that’s not the worst frequency, but it’s also no the best. If our goal is 1,000, we should really avoid these lower frequency crutches.

How coffee’s frequency affects you

There’s a lot we can say about the actual frequency of coffee and whether it changes as you drink it, and vibrational frequency is a bit of an abstract concept for many. But what really matters is how this frequency affects your life.

And there’s one easy way for you to know without a shadow of a doubt that coffee lowers your vibrational energy.

Here it is…

Anxiety is associated with lower vibrations. And we all know that coffee is linked to anxiety [study]. As you achieve higher vibrational levels, you will feel more and more peace and happiness.

High vibration alternatives to coffee

I’m currently in the process of quitting coffee myself, and I know it’s not easy. The journey will be different for everyone depending on your level of dependence, but going cold turkey is nearly an impossibility for most people.

We still have to function on a daily basis, so it might be best to wean yourself off coffee and caffeine until you can actually quit.

Here are some tips that are working for me:

Add a daily green smoothie to your day

A green smoothie is a great way to get loads of high-vibe fruits and veggies into your diet. And while these may not give you a jolt like coffee would, they will raise your energy level over time. After a few weeks of daily green smoothies, I found it easier to kick caffeine to the curb because my body had more natural energy.

Start your day with a mushroom elixir

Mushrooms are an amazing way to raise your energy, and you can create a hot mushroom elixir that’s similar to coffee. Even if you’re not a fan of mushrooms, you may enjoy this. Four Sigmatic even has a mushroom-coffee blend that can help wean you off the bean.

Drink herbal tea instead

I start my day with a mushroom elixir, but I can’t seem to fight the urge to hit up any of the local Starbucks later in the day. This is only because I work from home and I need to get out sometimes. But I’ve found that (after limiting coffee) it was easy enough to keep this routine and just order an herbal tea.

Start your day with a workout

There are still days when I feel like I just want coffee. But if I start my day with a workout, two things happen. First, I don’t have much time to contemplate a cup of Joe. I have to get myself out the door for the 8:30 class. And second, I definitely feel energized after the workout, so I can power through the rest of the day just fine.

How about you? Do you notice that coffee has had a negative impact on your life? Have you ever tried to quit? I’d love to hear about your personal experience.

    Hi Christina... I appreciate you quoting a reference from my blog article "How to Raise Your Energetic Vibration". This is a good reminder that I need to update that article. That information is outdated and NOT accurate. It was published in March 2012 and a lot has changed since then. First I discovered that not all coffees are created equally. Some coffees have a high vibration and some have a low vibration. How can you know? Learn to measure vibrational frequencies. You can also muscle test to see what is best for YOU. Second, the Hawkins' scale is now obsolete. I broke through his scale later that year in September 2012 and created a NEW scale that goes to infinity, representing infinite possibilities. I am currently in the process of finishing the book where I introduce this new Infinity Scale and show how to use it to access your greatest powers. The expected publishing date for "Access YOUR Ultimate Power: The Blueprint to Infinite Intelligence" is August 2019. Here is the media kit for it: I love all your suggestions for starting the day without coffee. Keep up the great work of raising your vibes!!

      Hi Kimberly, Thanks so much for the comment and the feedback! I'll definitely update the article with your new findings. And I love the idea of infinite possibilities. Looking forward to reading your new book!

    Hi! I loved your blog, it was very informative! I do have a question tho, quitting coffee is gonna be very hard for me so I was wondering if decaf coffee is a good alternative?

  3. Elizabeth Crowley February 7, 2021 Reply

    Would decaf coffee still lower our vibrations, do you think? Because (like Red Bull) I drink it for the taste and not the caffeine content. I've been thinking of switching to decaf anyway because I don't care for the jitters I have right now, but I love the drink that's gotten me here.

    Only you can choose if something lowers your vibration! The more you give over your power to the thoughts of I can't have that because society tells me I can't then you've already lowerd your state before even drinking it. If you believe something will cause you harm, it probably will! If you believe it won't then its down to you. Although I have cut down on caffeine. I still like the odd one. If some one told you to jump off a bridge would you do it?! I reprogram the meaning behind it and alchemy but Dosnst mean I have 20 cups a day lol. I think it's more to do with how it affects people differently.

    Fungi, mushrooms, are on the bottom of the food chain next to soot which is almost worthless. Coffee has more benefits than mushrooms. Google it One cup of coffee a day is just fine. Best to drink green smoothies than mushroom smoothies.

    I think I am HEAVILY ADDICTED to coffee! I went one day without it and by the end of that day, a horrible headache came outta nowhere. I literally threw up. I stopped drinking Redbull and pop over the last year and basically switched to coffee... I can consume between 6-8 cups according to the coffee pot. I had no idea it was a lower vibration food and the thought of not drinking it makes me feel sad! I need to exercise. I don’t at all. I definitely need to turn my whole life around.
