05. Raise Others' Vibrations

Note: This is one of a series of posts devoted to the study of D&C 93:1, and the fifth examining the phrase "cometh unto me".

In my immediate past posts, we discussed how music is a God-given gift which enjoyed a resurgence, a renaissance, simultaneous to the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  These composers knew they were transcribing vibrations from God -- vibrations which we, too, can enjoy.

I believe that music naturally brings us to a point where we're able to take a step closer to God...a step which raises your vibrations, and the vibrations of others.

What to do with the light you receive

I believe that a person in tune with God (pun intended) has a responsibility to go forth and share that light with others.  And, as usual, sharing that light is a lot simpler than we suppose.

Too often, we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

Check out what happened when the Savior smiled at His Nephite disciples:

"And it came to pass that Jesus blessed them as they did pray unto him; and his countenance did smile upon them, and the light of his countenance did shine upon them, and behold they were as white as the countenance and also the garments of Jesus; and behold the whiteness thereof did exceed all the whiteness, yea, even there could be nothing upon earth so white as the whiteness thereof." (3 Nephi 19:25)

"And when Jesus had spoken these words he came again unto his disciples; and behold they did pray steadfastly, without ceasing, unto him; and he did smile upon them again; and behold they were white, even as Jesus." (3 Nephi 19:30)

A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.  It's the freest form of spiritual and emotional therapy around.  It simply and effectively shares the light you have received.

Are You Up for a Challenge?

I challenge you -- I dare you -- to do this: 
  1. Every morning for the next week, pray that Father will send you someone to share a smile.  Then, actively look for opportunities to share those smiles.  Elevate.  Strengthen.  Inspire.  Enlighten.
  2. Every night, thank Father for all the people who were brought to you, so you could smile at them.
  3. Repeat process.
If you want to take things a step further, choose one person who made your week go more smoothly, then send him or her a quick thank-you note.  It's a small time commitment - maybe 10 minutes.  But the results are powerful.


  1. Thank you for the challenge/dare. I try to do this anyways but having you post it really made me refocus on this and become more diligent in this. I will be doing this everyday and will send you a comment in a week to share how this goes. Thanks again for ALL your posts. Even though I don't comment much doesn't mean I don't read and absorb the post you give. They truly are a blessing in my life.

  2. Agree. I check in everyday looking for more. I appreciate your work.

  3. Love this challenge. I’m going to try it!!
