The Keys to Unlocking Your Full Potential
We created Resonate to inspire people and help others channel their deepest desires and goals. Often, we get caught up in our day to day activities, causing us to put our well-being on the back burner. The demands of school, work, families, and finances start to take over. At Resonate, we believe it is possible to build a balanced life that puts health and happiness at the forefront.
At the most fundamental level, everything is in a state of vibration. In applied physics, there is a phenomenon called sympathetic resonance, where a passive body responds to the vibration of another by taking on the same frequency.
Think of a time when you’ve been tired or in a bad mood and encountered someone or something very positive. Their positive energy tends to “rub off,” leaving you feeling lighter and more energized. On the other hand, think of a time when you’ve been in a good mood and come across someone who is complaining or negative. It is likely that you’ll find yourself sapped of energy or in a bad mood if you spend too much time with them. We have the ability to affect those around us based on our internal state.
At Resonate, we want to give our community the tools to retain a positive vibration. As more people become fulfilled, happy, and in control of their well-being, there will be a trickle down effect that helps make the world around us a better place to live. As more of us find balance within ourselves, we simultaneously lift up those who are close to us.
Resonating positively comes down to self care. If we are not at peace within our body and mind, we can’t create peace in our environment. Our state is never permanent: Our whole system is always in flux. The challenge is to stay centered during times of uncertainty and stress. If we follow certain basic principles, maintaining a balanced state becomes more manageable.
Three Tips to Help You Resonate at Your Highest Frequency:
1. Establish a daily 5-10 minute meditation practice. We are in charge of operating the universe’s most sophisticated computer, our brains. However, many of us go entire lifetimes without performing routine maintenance. Imagine if you had the same computer for 70+ years and never took the time to delete old files or update the software. Without a doubt, functionality will diminish over time.
The good news is that we can clean out our internal computers daily with just a few minutes of quiet reflection. To get started, set aside 5 minutes, put on some calming music (or sit in silence) and focus on breathing deeply to the point where you feel your diaphragm expand. It is OK to have racing thoughts, we all do! This is not a sign that meditation isn’t for you. It is a sign that you should continue to practice. Over time, you will be able to improve your breathing focus, and your mind will begin to quiet down.
2. Use good quality fuel, and exercise regularly. Let’s use another analogy. Your car requires specific fuel. Poor quality gasoline can cause damage to the engine. We are the very same way. Many convenience foods available today do not have the micronutrients required to support our bodies’ complex processes. Food labels such as “low-fat”, “gluten-free” and “organic” are meant to trick us into believing we are making healthy choices. The most nutritious foods do not come in packages with cleverly designed labels. A diet that consists of mostly fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, and legumes (lentils, peas, soy), will provide the most nutrition with the lowest amount of calories.
When it comes to exercise, commitment is key. Just as a car requires quality fuel, it also needs to be driven regularly to maintain proper function. Similarly, we need to move our bodies regularly to maintain strength and flexibility. It’s best to find something that is easy to commit to, rather than starting an intense regimen that leaves you burnt out after a couple weeks. By exercising and eating well we can create a strong foundation for our mental, emotional, and spiritual health.
3. Stay adaptable to uncomfortable situations. Unforeseen misfortune can occur at anytime. We aren’t always in control of the events in our lives, but we can control how we react to them. Staying calm under pressure is a skill that we can develop with practice. Over time, we will build the confidence and resolve to handle any situation.
To be our best, we must feel our best. It is time to stop putting yourself on the back burner! Every long journey begins with a single step.
