How Living With a High Vibration Changes Your Life and Daily Interactions

Meet Boz! Pandas symbolize peace, harmony and friendship- this little bear is a wonderful reminder to stop and remember to be kind to yourself as well as those around you- even if low vibes try and stand in your way.

It’s so interesting to see how living with a high vibration can change your everyday encounters with the people around you.

Case in point, at my last job (a stern law office with many unhappy people), my happy-go-lucky personality and friendly demeanor was, well, uncomfortable for others.  It took me a month or two to realize this, but then after watching an episode of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” I realized I probably had to tone it down a notch (does anyone know what episode I’m talking about?  So good).

Nevertheless, I tried.  I tried to “keep my head down,” stay quiet, and focus on work I had no interest in. It was nearly impossible though, because as a creative type and lightworker, I wanted to engage, connect, and make the office more pleasant.  Alas, I was required to take orders from young attorneys who didn’t understand social media and type up documents I wasn’t trained on.

After three and a half months of this, I knew this legal job would be the last; as I stepped into the person I have learned I am, I needed to find a more suitable environment.

Perhaps this job would have worked well for me when I arrived in Boston in December 2016. I was broken yet optimistic, eager to learn yet still finding her footing. The structure of a more corporate environment could have shaped me into a completely different person than I am today- but fortunately, I was surrounded by healing, artistic, loving people who taught me the joys of meditation, kindness, and self-love.

That brings me to today- over a year and a half after I first arrived in Boston to start a new life.  I have come a long way since that chilly December morning when I landed at Logan Airport, and my self-discovery journey will continue every day for the rest of my life.

In my first Mindful in Style YouTube video, I chatted about how carrying a high vibration can affect you (and others) in even a fun, energetic environment where you feel of service and (think you) fit in.  Something small, yet still stung, happened today- but I was able to quickly put it into perspective.

Perhaps I could have taken their comments the wrong way, or perhaps others actually were being cruel- but as I left my new job today, I heard people making fun of me when they thought I had left.

Had I not used a goofy word, “weekend-ish,” been so upbeat, or flat out said “this job is fun,” perhaps they wouldn’t have teased me.  Maybe it didn’t matter what I did.  Maybe they’re going through their own issues. Despite the reasons, it does not matter.

I don’t have to let the outside world determine my internal condition.

As I looked at Boz the bear when I came home today, I smiled and sat on my bed.  I remembered how far I have come, and how petty frustration or sensitivity is so unimportant in my life today.  I can finally say goodbye to the defensive, snappy person with a guard up and a chip on her shoulder and live with grace, not aggression.

Hopefully those people enjoy their weekend as much as I do, and maybe, just maybe, they’ll use the word “weekend-ish” one day, too.

Gemini New Moon Intentions: Everything is About to Change

This New Moon is special.

It’s time to stop and smell the roses- for life is beautiful.  Society is what makes life stressful.  Not life itself.  We all have the power to live the life we love- the problem is, most people don’t realize this.

Falling under the sign of Gemini, associated with communication and the conscious mind, today’s June 13th New Moon at 3:43PM EST is the beginning, and the end, of the rest of your life.

Sounds kind of drastic, doesn’t it?

Honestly, not really.

These changes are internal.

Remember how you used to hold back as a kid, second guessed the things you said, or avoided creativity for the fear of what others may think?  Well, everything is about to change.

Big projects will come to fruition, you’ll gain confidence to use your voice, and things that used to scare you won’t any longer.

You’ll stop numbing your feelings and start using them as strengths.  You’ll use your struggles as lessons, and you’ll stop making the same mistakes twice.

Rushing will be a thing of the past, because you’ll start to recognize that what’s for you will not pass you.  Missing the train, rejection from a job, getting dumped by your boyfriend- these are all for reasons.

There is something bigger and better for you on the horizon.

So, sit back, and relax for once- with clear intentions, hard work, and clear communication, you will make your mark.

Just wait.  Trust the process.  Life is about to become even more beautiful.

Sharing My Stories

Boston Harbor

Over the past couple of months I’ve been having fun- I mean, a lot of fun- with my Instagram stories.

So, what do I talk about, you ask?  Honestly, nothing really. 

I walk around Boston and talk about my day.  I laugh at funny things and hope you’re laughing right along with me.  I show you cool things around the city, ask your advice on my style choices, and share my thrift store finds.  I share things I learn from others.  I connect- and that is what I love so much.

Whatever I happen to be doing, I am embracing every moment of every day.

Enjoying life is what living beautifully is all about, and I hope you join me in my journey!
