What Are You Really Doing When You Raise Your Vibe?

Most of us would agree that when we are in a good place more gets done. When we are feeling energetic, focused, like what we do matters, and we have an important place in this world, we not only enjoy our life more, but we get better results in what we do.

We know it when we are there and “feeling it”, yet it’s a difficult place to describe. When we aren’t there, we also recognize it and may say things like I need to “get in a better space”, “raise my vibration” or “put my head on straight”.





Have you ever thought about what these statements actually mean and how we do it? This was first described to me clearly by Jerry and Ester Hicks, who channel Abraham. They teach an emotional guidance scale to raise your vibration.

Recognizing where you are at and consciously stretching yourself up to a slightly better feeling vibration, is the blueprint to living a happier, more fulfilled life.

It got me thinking – what IS this “higher vibration” state in the first place? What is this made of?

If you are intentional about exploring and defining how you choose to live your life and playing with different ways to manifest, know that experiencing each of these qualities is not only possible, but can be incorporated into every aspect of your life. I review each of these in chapter one of my book, Trust Your Next Step: Creating the Confidence to Cut Fresh Tracks.

Let’s take a look at the qualities of a high vibrating state:

Love. Love is the energy from which all things, all of life, flows. Love is our life force and is an intense and powerful radiation that can’t be seen but can be felt. It is the core, the essence, of our light.

Power. The author Mastin Kip says that power is “having enough energy to be able to direct your will, your choices and your actions to ring your greatest vision to life.” This is an internal type of power that comes directly Source.

Light (wisdom). The highest vibration of Source is love and it is infinite intelligence. Omniscient and omnipresent. It is the natural blending of these two qualities that makes wisdom. Love and intelligence combined.

Beauty. The externalization of harmony. Beauty is the very structure, the foundation, of all creation. Including you and everything you create. Beauty comes from the actual construction of the thing itself and cannot be added on as an afterthought. Beauty happens in and during creation, not after.

Joy. A soul-level experience that comes from accepting all of our emotions, both positive and negative, and being at peace with them. Joy is what we are when all of our fears, worries, concerns and doubts are gone.

Life. More than the period between when you are born and when you die, life is the nature of all things. Our life force is always innately seeking ways to express in bigger, greater ways.

Abundance. The feeling of knowing that you have more than enough of whatever you want or need. The more you recognize your spiritual nature, the more abundantly you will receive and recognize the various aspects in your life. You do this by knowing that the energy of the Universe, of Source, is infinite and as such, so are you.

Peace. When your inner state “of being “is in control, even when the outer world is not. Not disturbed by what is happening around you and maintaining a sense of calm, quiet, serenity and tranquility. You are then in harmony with life. 

Freedom. Living free of fear, tension, anxiety or sorrow. Self-knowledge – freedom from our ego. Not living from a place of believing our thoughts.

Read each of these qualities and see what reactions they bring up in you. Does one bring tears of emotion or a sense of longing? Do you feel lacking in one or more of these qualities? There are exercises in the Trust Your Next Step Workbook that will allow you to take this teaching deeper if you desire.

We often talk about raising our vibration flippantly. Take some time to dig into what it means for you and how to use this information consciously.

Living Outside the Lines

Living Outside the Lines

In our recent Fresh Tracks interview, author Mina Samuels made a comment about coloring outside the lines and it got me thinking. How do we do that? I can visualize coloring outside the lines – something I taught my children NOT to do when they were young. But what does coloring inside the lines mean in my life?

Are there any areas of my life that I AM staying inside the lines? Do I even know where the lines exist?

Coloring outside the lines implies making a choice to live your life your way. Not taking action because you feel obligated to do what is expected of you.

Can you define the lines in your life, where they are seemingly holding you back, and then, with intention, can you cross them?

When you are coloring inside the lines, the truth of the matter is you are usually coloring in someone else’s picture. Rather than even focusing on coloring outside the lines, perhaps start by drawing your own picture. Use whatever colors you want! You CAN have purple grass and green stars if you choose.

The lines are what our mind draws to keep us safe.

Coloring outside the lines is where the creativity happens. It’s the awakening where we realize we can create; we can do something beyond what we are told we can do. It is that creative space where we can express ourselves freely.

Stretching ourselves outside the lines provides a tension, an expansion. This tension is where the growth and forward movement takes place. It is the place where Universal Law kicks in and supports you.

In that tension are the energies of support, the expectation of success, and the bountiful vibration of abundance! It’s all encompassing in this one visual, this lesson we so lovingly teach our children, and strive for as adults…to color within the lines. Let’s retrain ourselves to do the opposite and cut our own Fresh Tracks!

The Art of Believing in Yourself

Believing in yourself is one of those things that is completely in your control yet seems to allude many of us our entire lives. Why? Because there is not a step-by-step formula for success. There is not a one-size fits all answer each of us can follow and be guaranteed confidence and self-esteem. And yet, the key to believing in our selves lies within each of us. Accessible in every moment of every day.

Our thoughts about our self are the main force behind our beliefs.

Are you aware of what are you saying to yourself day after day? In each moment? Are you aware of the conversations going on in your head? Are there other people talking to you (in your head) – such as your parents, your boss or partner? Are you repeating the same negative statements to other people over and over again?

Taking control of the conversations with yourself is the first step to believing in yourself.

Believing in yourself is an art because the journey to knowing you will achieve a goal or successfully accomplish a difficult task is different for each of us. And it requires you to be creative. To look at yourself and your beliefs differently.

Untangling the knots

Imagine your thoughts, that incessant internal conversation going on in your mind, as a big ball of string all tangled up. Each string is a statement or conversation thread. Your job is to first recognize a string, pull it out and separate it from all the others. And then determine if it is your string or not. Is this statement true? Is this me talking or someone else? Do I choose this string for me today? This string may have served you when you were young, but no longer does today.

YOUR strings are the truth about yourself. They are loving, kind, supportive statements and beliefs. They are your true Spiritual self, which is never unkind or unloving.

Other people’s strings are knotted up in your ball. And there are strings that you have taken as yours but do not speak and know your truth. Your job is to evaluate each string and make a conscious decision to keep it or not.

In order for you to believe in yourself you need to not only master your thoughts, but ensure your beliefs support you and aren’t tearing you down at every turn.

Fresh Tracker John Allcock shares on the Fresh Tracks podcast that “awareness gives us the power to realize we are choosing to listen to negative thoughts and the choice to choose positive thoughts”. The art of believing in yourself requires some introspection, examination, and trust.

Curating the awareness of your thoughts, your beliefs, your intentions is how you begin to believe in yourself.

How to Think Like a Boss: The Two Principles You Must Master

Olympian Ester Ledecka knows firsthand the rewards of cutting Fresh Tracks, creating an astounding upset in winter sports history by doing her own thing her own way.

Winter sports enthusiasts know – skiers aren’t good at snowboarding. And snowboarders can’t ski if their life depended on it. The two sports are completely different. Both the mechanics of the sports and the culture of each are night and day. In fact, the ski industry is known for snubbing snowboarders and consider snowboarding more of a “performance” than a true sport.

Along comes Czech Ester Ledecka – who didn’t give a hoot about athletic norms as she became not only the first woman to compete in two sports in any winter Olympics, but she also won two gold medals; one in women’s super-G Alpine skiing and the parallel giant slalom in snowboarding.

This was a complete upset in the Alpine ski world. Why? Let’s take a look….

When Ester raced the super-G she was the 26th skier to come down the mountain – that’s how far behind she was in the ranking. The race had already been called – photos of the medalists had already been taken!

Ledecka skied the super-G for fun, just to see how well she could do because she could. She won by .01 seconds and was so caught off-guard by her gold medal that she hid during the interviews. She wore her googles to her press conference afterward because, in her words, “I was not prepared to be at this ceremony, and I don’t have any makeup.”

Let’s take a look at two things Ester did to bring herself to this record breaking place in the Olympic winter sports community…

 Mastering the Law of Thinking

Ester first skied at age two and tried snowboarding at age five (because her brother was doing it). As she grew she trained in both sports and actually had separate coaching staffs and schedules in order to develop both skillsets. Ester refused to listen to advice to specialize in one sport – which she had been told to do since she was eight.

Ester made up her own mind about what she wanted to do, did the work to make it happen, and focused on doing her best. She did not set her limits on what others told her was possible. In an interview after her win, Ester shares “I have been dreaming of this moment since I was a little child… A lot of people were telling me that it is not possible to do both sports and to be on a high level in both sports and today I proved that it is possible.”

Ester would later say that skiing the super-G as a boarder rather than a skier may have given her an advantage because of her mindset. “I was standing there as a snowboarder a little bit in my heart, and all the girls are just (Alpine) specialists and there was a lot of pressure on them,” Ledecka said, recalling her thoughts when was at the start gate. “I was just, `C’mon, just do the best run you can, skier.’”

When asked what she would do if she were pressured to choose one sport she replied she would choose a different coach instead.

 Mastering the Law of Success

Ledecka is a snowboarder by trade and has only competed in skiing for two years.

She had never placed higher than 29th and came into the Olympics ranked 43rd in the world cup standings. Ester was happy to be the first person to ever compete in both sports at the Winter Olympics as that was her goal. She started the winning race in the 26th spot, beating the first-place winner by .01 seconds.

“I was probably the only snowboarder on site,” she said. “All the other girls didn’t risk a lot. There must be a lot of pressure on them. I was just trying to do my best run.”

Ester is dedicated, disciplined and focused – which is why the Law of Success is the Universal Principle that led to her ultimate gold medal. The main worry her coaches have is that she never wants to get off the slope, which in Alpine skiing can be dangerous.

“She is absolutely focused,” says her skiing coach Thomas Bank.

Her coaches say that because Ester both skied and boarded she was able to see the mountain differently when Alpine skiing. She was able to act more like an artist and create her own path rather than focusing on technique and best practices others have mastered.

The question to ask yourself is…

  1. Where are you “staying in the lines”.
  2. Where are you doing what’s expected of you rather than what you desire?
  3. Do you have the support system in place to support your decision?
  4. Are you expecting to succeed?
