I am a huge fan of DIVING IN, keeping an open mind, and trying new things. Everyone has the capacity to go deeper and start questioning the world around them. I literally always say "I know nothing" (Jon Snow ;)) and that I also know everything at the same time, because we all have the answers within us - every. single. one. of. us. No one outside of you knows more about anything spiritual than you do. You just have to go deep and search for the answers.
People ask me all the time what prompted my spiritual journey and why I am so passionate about our personal inner work. In talking with different groups of people I have found that a lot of us have had similar experiences and have been impacted greatly by some of the same things! Below I am sharing the steps that started my spiritual journey and how they impacted my life in the hopes that you may find some inspiration or experience the same connection I did with these experiences :)
1) The Secret
Well this is no secret (lol) most people have heard of this famous book and the Law of Attraction. I watched the movie about this book (free on YouTube) and it was the first thing that made me truly question my ability to manifest the world I want around me. It also inspired me to start experimenting with my mindset and say "fuck it - what have I got to lose?"
2) Dream Board
I created this immediately after watching The Secret - and let me tell you - every SINGLE thing on my board I made all those years ago has come true.. seriously!!! I went to the store and bought cork board panels and thumbtacks with the very little money I had at the time (I was eating ramen and cocoa puffs at the time so this really wasn't a "smart" way to be spending my money lol). I then cut out magazine clippings and anything else that gave me inspiration that I wanted in my life. I got travel, house, and beauty magazines and just went to town. I cut out words that I wanted to "feel" in life and also placed a list of what I want in my life. I put a dollar bill on the board and added three zeros after the one in sharpie and wrote "$1,000 per week" - that was a lofty goal for me back then. I then placed this on my wall in my room and just let it be.
Years later - I now make much more than $1,000/week, and I have travelled to all of those places on my board - without even realizing it! I literally visited a spot in Bali that was on my board (that I didn't even know was in Bali) and realized it later looking back at the picture. Same with house furnishings, places I've stayed, and experiences I wanted to have.
This dream board really works - give it a try and just leave it there somewhere in your house. Start thinking about the things you want in your life and what you find beautiful and what brings you happiness and inspiration.. because - why not?
3) The Double Slit Experiment
Okay this one explains itself way better than I ever could and really is fucking INSANE. Like blew my MIND. Seriously - WATCH TILL THE END. If this doesn't make you question your reality and dive deeper, I don't know what will. Also quantum theory is crazy cool and I definitely went down a rabbit hole with tons of cool videos on youtube that really make you think.
