A common question that people ask themselves when they get into the Law of Attraction is: If I start vibrating at a higher level than the people around me, does that mean I will lose all of my friends?
And the short answer is that it depends.
People Are A Reflection of Your Current Vibration
The people around you are a reflection of your current reality. People will show to you the side of them that you align with.
This means that if a person is able to access a higher vibration with you, then you will see that vibrational side of them.
For example, you may have an angry boss but then you do some personal energy work (like a couple of anger releases) and then all of a sudden your boss seems really kind and caring. Or someone who usually has a reputation of being a real a-hole is always nice to you. They matched your high vibration of giving and receiving happiness and kindness so they showed the happy and kind side that is within them.
The Fear That Friendships Must End Painfully Is a Limiting Belief
That being said, people have their own personal autonomy as well. If they do not allow themselves access to the same higher vibration that you are now playing on, they will "disappear" from your life.
But this doesn't have to a be a big dramatic thing (unless you have a limiting belief that it must be this way). In fact, the fear that it's going to be a big dramatic friendship "breakup" is usually the reason people ask this question in the first place.
For the most part, people that disappear do so in a quiet way.
Like at a Thanksgiving meal or a birthday party, you might find that you are never in the same room as sour aunt Gertrude or that you only see her when she's laughing. You only meet her when she's at her best.
People can also drift back into your reality as well. Sometimes when you're a couple steps ahead of them you may "disconnect" for awhile, but when they go through their own awakening process or are having a really good day you may connect back up with them again. When you interact with them, it's more fulfilling. You both have more fun.
Just set the intention that you have the best interactions with people around you, and relish the delight when you do!
