#2: My Top Hacks for Living A High Vibrational Lifestyle
Today, we're going to be speaking on that have high vibrational living. I'm going to be sharing with you some of my top hacks for how I keep my vibration high, some lifestyle parts of this equation that I have to do with how I live on a daily basis, uh, mindsets that helped me to stay in a high vibe state and even some daily hacks and habits that I have that have just totally transformed my life.
And let me rephrase it by saying that maybe some of you have heard my story before, but I had this awakening experience back in 2012. In 2012, I went through a spiritual awakening. And in this experience, basically what happened is to make a long story short, is I had at the time what is called ADHD, which means that was hard for me to focus.
Doctor said, hey, you have ADHD, here's some Adderall, which is the prescription drug they give out to people so that they can focus and what it does is that will make you focus. So, I went to work every day. I worked at Nordstrom's and I was able to really focus and I made money on it. I mean it was like this. What My Top Hacks for Living A High Vibrational Lifestyle does is it makes you release a lot of dopamine so you just feel really focused.
But then the side effect of that is then you crash. So, I would take it while I was at work and then I'd get off work. I go home and the side effects of Adderall are you can't eat very much, you can't sleep very much and it was just very harsh side effects. It's like imagine you're taking caffeine like a whole shots and shots of espresso, which by the way, I would take four shots of espresso and I would feel like actually focused when I would do it.
You know how some people feel jittery when I had like what is called ADHD, I would actually feel very calm. It was kind of weird how it worked, but uh, nonetheless, what I would do is I would, you know, how you would crash on sometimes caffeine on taking like a spread or coffee, we'll imagine that times 10 on Adderall and that was the harsh side effects.
So, eventually I was working at Nordstrom's and I was going through the harsh side effects, not able to eat very much at night and sleep well. So I did a little bit of research and I came across meditation and you guys want to know what the side effects of meditation are. Only positive, you know, like the side effects. Are you feeling better, more mental clarity? I'm a general sense of wellbeing. I was like, well these side effects look a lot better than the other side effects.
So I was like, you know what, okay, although this research, I'm going to follow up on it, I'm going to practice it or at least see what this is all about. So I remember for a second or a first, second day I tried it, not much of a difference. Then I third day, third day was the magical day. I learned how to observe my thoughts rather than control them. The first two days I knew about the law of attraction already and my mind was like, I was like, oh, can I take negative thoughts?
Which of course causes more resistance. So instead what I did is I observed those thoughts from a neutral place and I allowed them to be there. I didn't try to control my mind. That was when things started to shift. I started to feel totally different about myself. I started to become more present to the moment.
I realized that there is a thinker within me, there's a thinker, and then there's the observation of that thinker that's more awareness. That's more of the expanded point of awareness that I became to understand and from that moment going forward, I started to feel totally different about myself and I remember walking around my room and just feeling so different.
Like I would say that before I felt a lot of a lot more anxiety, I felt on a scale of one to 10 with one feeling not so great, 10 feeling amazing. I felt like I was normally in about three or four, maybe a three to a five, and then after this kind of spiritual awakening in this presence that I started to more so feel I went to about a seven or an eight out of nine out of 10. I started to feel really good a majority of the time and I thought it was going to go away.
I remember walking around my room thinking to myself, oh, is this feeling ever going to go away? But the thing is, it never really did go away. It just became my natural set point. And of course it still fluctuates. I'm not saying I'm enlightened or I'm not saying that, uh, you know, there's times that I don't. There's times I feel really good, but my base point has changed.
So, my base point is now generally at about a seven or an eight out of 10. And as I go down this rabbit hole of consciousness, I realized that this one to 10 scale is kind of obsolete. There's actually a 15 or a 20 out of 10. That's a whole different concept though. That's a whole different episode, but nonetheless, um, that changed my whole life. I then started to live in a higher vibrational state that a lot of things in my life changed from that point going forward.
I started to have a lot more realizations about life in general about the way reality works. I let go of a lot of habits that no longer serves me. Um, and I started to resonate with a totally different way state of being a state of consciousness and what I'm about to share with you, these different hacks and stuff that I've learned over the last year since 2012 that I've just in a way solidified into a routine or stuff that I do consistently that has allowed me to live the kind of lifestyle that I do now.
And part of that lifestyle I live now is I wake up every day and I love absolutely love what I do. I get to do what I want when I want to do it. And it's because some of the stuff I'm going to share with you. I don't say that to brag or to make you feel like, Oh, if you're going to a nine to five job, you don't enjoy, you should feel bad.
Uh, I think that you can do it as well. I think this is stuff that I share is like I just kind of, I've lived it and I've done it, so I want other people to be able to live it as well. So, part of that has to do with understanding a, this one major idea that I'm going to be sharing with you and it's the thread from which all of this kind of weaves through and that is simply understanding passion and doing what you love for a living.
And the reason that is, is because when we're in a high, in a passionate state, when we are doing what we are naturally excited about, when we doing whatever that is, that feeling, that feeling of excitement is our body's translation. It's our body's way of telling us, hey, this is what you're meant to be doing.
This is more to the core of who you really are. This core is who you really are. And that's the thing is when we feel in positive emotion, that's emotion is telling us that we are in alignment with who we really are and I are higher vibrational state. Is that connected to our passion and what we're excited about. When we do that, something else that'll happen as time will go by crazy fast, I swear time goes by so fast, it's insane, and it's because I'm in this high vibe state of me doing what I love and the biggest takeaway.
We'll just get into it right now. The biggest takeaway from this whole thing, I'm going to tell you the hacks. I'm going to tell you all these little things as well, but the underlying thread of this all is, are you doing what you are passionate about? Are you doing what you're excited about?
And if not, that's totally okay, but know that as you start to set intentions for you to figure out what that is, you will start to find momentum in your life going in that direction. So this is more so about understanding who you are. This is about understanding your core frequency, understanding that you can start to do things that maybe are a little bit scary because you haven't done them before, but if you have some type of intuition about it, I'd say go ahead and do it.
I and even me when I was making YouTube videos, I wasn't comfortable. The first video I made like, Oh, I knew that YouTube videos or some type of videos in general, like I, I've always known I was meant to be some type of public speaker since I was young. I just knew that I knew that that was my mission in life or something I was going to be doing, but I didn't know how that was going to come to fruition and I knew that the first YouTube video I made, I wasn't going to feel very comfortable.
And if you go back to my YouTube channel, look at the very first video I ever made. I don't look very comfortable and I had this intuition inside of myself that said, hey, if I do this, I feel like I will either become more passionate about it and it'll become more natural for me or it will lead me to something which is where I need to be. And that's what I did is I just decided I was going to do that. And of course, I figured things out along the way that accelerated that whole process.
But nonetheless, I was scared in the beginning, but I chose to do it. So is there something that maybe you've been holding off? Maybe it's a, maybe it's starting a podcast. Maybe it's creating content. Maybe it's you doing art more often and you expressing it to the world.
Maybe it's sharing a message. Maybe it's you, uh, going all in on something you're passionate about. Whatever it is, find out what that is and choose to do it. Take the step, take the leap because that leap, even though it feels scary at first, will lead you to the next best thing.
And the thing is we can't create anything new when we've been doing consistent things over and over and over again because auto pilot mind is in effect, everything that we do is on autopilots, almost everything, 99 percent of it, and when we make this choice to do something that maybe we haven't done before and especially when it has something to do with them.
That's when things really start to happen in a powerful way and that's what I did, is I made the choice that I'm going to start making more YouTube videos and that's what I did and things started to grow and you get signs from the universe as well.
When you are taking action, doing something you're passionate about, the universe will give you signs and it will say, yes, you're going in the right direction and maybe right away even if something doesn't happen right away, you have to trust the process. But the first thing that I wanted to talk about today is that of doing what you are passionate about.
Personally, I've always known that that was, like I said, making videos or sometimes somehow sharing my message, sharing my content and I did that with making YouTube videos and I did that for about six months, eight months. I didn't get as much out of it because I wasn't putting as much into it.
And the game changer for me is that I decided that in order for me to bring my side hustle into my full time, what I had to do is I had to treat my side hustle. Like it was my full time before it was, which wasn't always easy because I was working a nine to five job and I was, you know, I was working at Barneys New York selling woman's shoes 40 hours a week, plus all the other time.
Pretty much was me making YouTube videos, editing them, posting them. But I just, I believed so much in what I was doing and I knew that the more I put into it, the more I would be in the vibration of being a full time YouTuber that eventually that would become my reality and that's exactly what happened. That became my reality and it's like what are you passionate about?
And if you can do that thing more often, that will lead you to more and more of you being in a high vibrational state. Like when I get in front of the camera and I make videos, I feel like I'm in a high vibrational state. Like I get into a flow state. I don't, I actually don't even script my videos. Like sometimes I don't even really know what I'm going to talk about in the video. The only thing that I write down the day before is the title.
So, I know the exact title when I wake up in the morning, I believe there's power in going to bed at night and having the subconscious mind work on things and figure it out. I set the intention before I go to bed. And, before I went to bed tonight, I was like, okay, I'm going to make a video and parallel realities tomorrow. Understanding we don't have to create our own reality. We can make it easier by knowing that we can just choose it, so that's all I knew, but I woke up this morning.
I do some of the stuff I'm about to share with you in a little bit about my high vibe type habits and then I go into a video and it just very smooth, very easy because I've prided myself through hundreds and hundreds of videos. I think there's 700 videos on my YouTube channel now and I don't say that to brag or for you to feel like you're. You're so far behind.
I say that because with repetition is where the power comes. It's where it all starts to flow through. So buy into yourself now because the earlier you start, the faster, quicker ahead you're going to be.
I can only imagine that if I started doing this like four years ago where I would be a, everything happens, you know, of course the way it's supposed to and I believe that, but at the same time, I know that in four years from now I'm going to be at a totally different reality and the sooner you start the better, so I encourage you, whatever that is, to start now, not wait, start now because you will start to be.
You'll be much further ahead than you would be if you waited and you waited and you waited and you never know how fast can things can happen. I couldn't have imagined a year ago that I would be at where I'm at today. I knew it was my goal. That was my intention, but it's even exceeded that of what my vision was, so find out what you're passionate about.
Do that thing because that thing, whatever that is, that feeling that you have within your body is your body telling you this is closer to your core frequency of who you are. If you don't know what that is, like I said, just simply set intentions. When you set the intention for you to find your passion, you'll start to get signs of that. Maybe it's a book that pops out at you. Maybe it's a certain person gets brought into your life. Maybe it's a certain activity you feel guided to do.
Maybe it's not the end all be all thing, you know, like, uh, I get certain intuition sometimes I had an intuition that I to start making more meditation videos and I started to do that and people started to really get benefit out of it.
I started to realize how much power that was. So I kept doing it and that was like a carrot on a stick that led me to something else that led me to something else you never know, but you just start doing whatever's the most passionate thing you can do in the moment that will trickle out and lead you to the next best thing to the next best thing to the next best thing until eventually you're on this astatic static expression of how you prefer to be this timeline.
That's just totally indicative of how you prefer to be. So that's the underlying thread of passion. That's probably the most important part of the process, but I wanted to share that first. As cliché as it sounds, it really is the true degree of power and money is a side effect of that. Honestly. Like money is a side effect of that.Like I put everything I do, I put into adding value to people through me sharing my message because I know that a side effect of that is the financial abundance. A side effect of helping other people is.
What we put out is what we get back.
That comes back to because I believe we live in a reality where what we put out is what we get back and at a deeper level. What I put out to other people and if I can help other people, I'm helping other aspects of myself from a deeper level of consciousness and that comes back, but the key is to not focus on just the money.
It's not just focus on the materialistic parts of it. That can sometimes be a motivator, but the key is to go deeper than that because those things are fleeting. They're fleeting. Even if like we make a certain amount of money per month, that was our goal. We may make it and we may realize, okay, this is cool, but it doesn't feel that much different than, than whatever.
Before, I would say that one of your first goals should be to just go full time doing what you love. That can be, that I think is more powerful than a certain dollar amount, and they say that statistically when you get to about $70,000 a year, and I know this is debatable, but about 70 to $80,000 a year. That’s the point.
