The Ocean Is Calling & I Must Go
T’was the weekend before college graduation and my whole life lied ahead of me. I was twenty-two years old with an occupational position already lined up waiting. In two months I’d be entering the corporate world where I’d become a worker bee for life! I was following in the footsteps of my family's four generations of business executives who all went on to run some of the top agencies in the world! This weekend was the weekend of all weekends, it was my graduation celebration! My family always held high expectations and upon reaching them the “conqueror” would receive a reward worthwhile. Since I had conquered the treacherous curriculum of Yale University my reward was a short getaway to the Caribbean island commonly known as St. Bart’s. Life couldn’t get any better!
Want Some Cheese With That (W)h(ine)
“Continental Airlines proudly welcomes you to Frankfurt, Germany . In a short while we’ll be touching down at Frankfurt International Airport.” You would assume these words from the stewardess would be exhilarating for any sane individual who had just completed a nine hour flight. In this instance that inquiry would ring 100% false! As a moody and overly dramatic seventeen year old I had fallen into a deep state of self loathing. Dejection blasted through my eardrums as my “Best Sad Songs Mix” played on repeat. My father was a contractor and struck a high paying position in exchange for relocating. What should have been a fun summer getaway to Europe snowballed into a permanent stay. My heart ached for America and what I had left behind but what really drove me mad was moving my Senior year of high school. Hello unfamiliarity and goodbye to my top spot on the social food chain!
Meditation Medication Audio
Intro: For the past seven years I walked through life with blinders chasing the idealistic lifestyle known as the “American dream.” In this process my human was set on autopilot, submerged in a life of monotony with precious time ticking away. I had turned sour like an old glass of milk and expiring is exactly where I was headed mentally. The next day I arrived to work and couldn’t believe what I was witnessing. I watched in disbelief how my coworkers maneuvered like robots imprisoned in a cycle meant to keep us reigned in like cattle. No wonder a dark cloud was lingering over me, I spent over sixty hours a week surrounded by those in misery and I was becoming a product of my environment. I then had an epiphany, a shockwave of intuitive clarity that change needed to happen NOW! I took a risk and requested my saved up three weeks of vacation and set out on a journey that saved my life. I asked myself the questions I had been avoiding and adapted new habits, one being meditation. Once I acknowledged exactly what was cancerous in my life, the journey found me and lit the path like wildfire showing me where I needed to go to find my euphoria.

Vibin' N Thrivin'
Can you recall a time when you felt an instantaneous connection with a person or pet? Perhaps you were drawn in by a specific object that felt like it chose you versus you choosing it!

It was seriously good vibes only, a cosmic connection with the feeling of being on the same wavelength. This is when “vibing” becomes more than just a figure of speech and a scientific fact! Nobel Prize for Physics winner Albert Einstein couldn’t have stated it better, “everything in life is vibration.”
