Disclaimer: I write this as a journal entry that I choose to share with whomever wants to read it. Instead of keeping these words in a journal, I am choosing to write them out and keep them on this blog. It is my intention to keep track of my personal journey to see where I was, how much growth I have overcome, and set my goals to where I want the future to take me. I find writing very therapeutic, and I have always enjoyed reading where I was previously — whether that be weeks, months, or years later.
I moved across the country from Kansas to Berkeley, California in August of 2016. I was working night shift in a big city where I knew no one besides my boyfriend I had moved with and my brother, sister-in-law, and niece that thankfully lived a couple towns east. I was totally out of my comfort zone, and I spiraled into a low vibrational state for months and months. I was sleeping too much, watching an unhealthy amount of HGTV, not going outside daily, and not working out. I knew deep down that I needed to change this habit because I did not appreciate this side of me that was very new to me.
Thankfully, I found my groove again. I signed up with Corepower in Berkeley, and I found purpose in my life again — back on my mat, exercising, connecting to my breath, and expressing gratitude. I found my favorite teachers and would go to their classes as much as I could, as I enjoyed the positivity and overall sense of gratitude I would leave after these classes. This connection created a new chapter into my life; it was deeper than words could explain. I knew this because I felt it deeper in my soul, my heart, my mind, and my body. I could feel myself changing on a cellular level, reproducing new cells that were full of high vibration abundance.
I had recently been interested in learning more about meditation, the Law of Attraction, the general topic of raising my vibration, and self help books in general. I had never considered myself a “reader” before in life other than Harry Potter, but this was different. I was excited to read, to learn, and to enhance my knowledge on these topics. I was excited that I was connecting to words on a page so easily. I had found my flow again, but this time it was transformational! I started my mind, body, and soul journey after an enlightening day in the summer of 2017.
I had started cultivating my new lifestyle that I absolutely loved, and I knew that it was my purpose to share it with the world knowing there had to be others in the world out there like me during my low vibrational state. All you had to do was do something for your mind, body, and soul every single day continuously. Some may say that it is too hard, but not when you narrow it down to spending one minute in each category every day, because eventually you will crave more and more time. You will even want to pop up out of bed just a little bit earlier so that you can achieve this pleasant state of mind. It is THAT good.
I tracked my daily progress in my planner labeling it “M” for mind which meant meditation, “B” for body which meant exercise, and “S” for soul which meant gratitude. I started to notice the trend of my mood and overall happiness exceed any level or expectation I had ever thought about “achieving” in my life before. Days turned into weeks where I believed I was one of the happiest individuals in the entire world, going through my normal daily life, which included going to work, running errands, exploring the Bay Area, and delving more into my mind, body, and soul connection through reading books, articles, and my own documentation of my overall well-being.
I decided to start to track this on instagram, but I wasn’t sure how I was going to do this. I decided to make a separate account for all of my yoga pictures, insightful quotes, and positive vibes — only to realize how hard it was to be living two separate lives on instagram. After a month or so, I deleted the second account, and I dissolved this internal fear I had of what other people would think of me posting day after day good vibes. I decided how silly it was to hide this side of me, and from that moment I decided I would post whatever I wanted whenever I wanted. I would not live in fear of being judged anymore. I was finally — for what felt to be the first time in my life — I was proud of the person I was meant to be. I wasn’t hiding anymore. I was open. I was confident. I was free. I was fearless. I had a new fire inside of me and a deeper understanding of who I was, and who I will forever be — a gentle soul yogi.
Today, I use my instagram account to track my vibrational scale on a daily basis. Some days I am a beaming individual of love, and other days I have to continuously work my way up the vibrational scale. However, the fact that I am TRULY recognizing and understanding how this emotional vibrational scale works, I use it to my advantage. I tune into how I feel the moment I wake up, and I use my mind, body, and soul connection to up level my own number through yoga, meditation, and gratitude. And let me tell you, IT WORKS! I know this firsthand how it has changed my life in an indescribable way.
Now, I want every person in the world to be able to tap into your own source energy to create a life you love on a daily basis. I hope you take the time to check out my seven day mind, body, and soul challenge. You can print out the sheet and keep track of what you do every single day for 7 days. I believe putting pen to paper holds you accountable, and I have always been a visual learner, so this has also helped me best. Do what works best for you, but put in the consistent work and you will reap the benefits!
Sending you all love, light, and abundance!
