Light a taper candle and have it about a foot in front of you, preferably at eye level.
Gaze at the candle for one minute.
Close your eyes and imagine the flame at your third eye (the spot between your eyebrows) for two minutes.
Cup your hands over your eyes and take a few breaths.
This activity helps increase feelings of oneness with the universe and reduces feelings of separation.
I have been so busy lately and absolutely loving every second but my life flows better when I take these small moments so tend to my vibration.
I did this the other day and just love how fast I can create a sense of calm.
If you want to do this right now, I made a one-minute video of my candle flame for you to gaze at, and then you can set a timer for two minutes to close your eyes after or simply try to keep them closed longer than you gazed at the candle.
I like to use the Insight Timer app on my phone to create an interval timer so I don’t have to count or worry about messing with my phone during this short meditation. You simply set a 3-minute timer with an interval bell at one minute and an ending bell.
All the lessons in my Tend To Your Vibration guidebook help give you a moment of peace so you can enjoy life and allow more beautiful things to come into your experience.
Take a moment and sit up tall, do some shoulder rolls, and take some deep breaths through your nose. Now imagine white light all around you and envision an animal next to you as your guide. Finish by saying something nice to yourself and smile.
Notice how you feel. Hopefully, you feel a little bit better than you did before. Enjoy these feelings. This is an example of tending to your vibration.
Your vibration is your emotional energy. Your vibration changes depending on how you feel and what you are focusing on. Your vibration is high when you are feeling good and trusting that life is working out for you. Your vibration is low when you are criticizing yourself and feeling stuck.
Your emotional energy acts as a magnet that draws more of what you are feeling into your life. Your vibration is created by you, your thoughts, how you feel physically, and what you spend time focusing on.
Basically, your thoughts create your emotions which create your vibration. When you tend to your vibration, you can begin to truly enjoy each moment while creating a life you love.
The word “tend” means to care for, look after, or give one’s attention to. This guidebook will help you tend to your emotions, environment, and vibration like you would a garden or your home. You will do this using nature, breath, thoughts, imagination, and energy.
The techniques shared are simple ways to help you enjoy life more and draw more things to enjoy into your life. They are a mix of my creations, ancient techniques from my yogic studies, tried and true life coaching exercises, along with energy work from my experience as an intuitive mentor.
You will become a magnet for your desires.
Tending to your vibration looks different for everyone. I share what has worked for me. Along the way, you will discover what works for you. All of it will help you become a more authentic version of yourself.
You will learn how to empower yourself and shift your energy to a higher vibration. If you commit to working on the tips and exercises, you will feel a massive positive shift in the flow and experience of your life.
This work will help you enjoy life more and feel more confident in the choices you make. I am not saying you won’t have bad days. It’s important to feel all of your feelings.
The goal of the work I am sharing is to help you learn how to handle the ups and downs of life with more grace and ease. You will bounce back quicker and learn to catch yourself going negative faster.
You will learn how to tune out the world around you and tune into your inner wisdom. You will have the resources to change your mood, your thoughts, your breath, and your life.
Your life might change, or you might change how you look at your life. Or both! Either way, you will feel empowered by the work you do and happy that you have committed to bringing positive change into your life.
Take a moment and thank yourself for taking this time for yourself.
You might want to create a special place in which to do this work. This could be a room, a chair, a nook. Maybe just a basket or tray that will contain the tools you want around you as you work through this guide like candles, matches, incense, essential oils, etc. Make it yours.
You might like to get a journal to write down your reflections and responses or use the printable worksheets I created for you by visiting the Book Bonus section on my website.
There is a positive affirmation at the end of each lesson that you might like to incorporate into your life or possibly repeat when you are practicing the lessons. Notice the ones that make you feel really good and repeat them often.
Have fun with this guide! Think of it as a toolbox you can use to help you get unstuck, pumped up, relaxed, goal-oriented, and so on.
When you are first starting, you might like to keep your efforts private or share them with the world. Honor your feelings around how you share the time you take for yourself.
You will have different needs at different times, and this guide will feel like a comforting space to come back to help you tune in and remember who you really are.
Get ready! I hope you enjoy this journey of creating positive shifts and receiving abundance in every area of your life by tending to your vibration.
You are worthy of enjoying life, feeling good, and manifesting your dreams!
Thank you so much for your support! This journey has actually helped me create a better version of my book that I am really confident about. I love that the universe brought me to this moment. I look forward to tending to our vibrations together!
If you have read my book, Tend To Your Vibration, then you will have learned that setting time aside to tend to yourself regularly can give you a level of freedom that you have never felt before.
With my kids back in school, I have been playing around with a semi-daily to-do list that I made for myself and I thought you might enjoy using it too.
I say “semi-daily” because each personality is different. You might like this daily, weekly, monthly, or randomly. Whichever one suits you, I hope you enjoy this list and guide below!
How to Use Your To-Do List:
Date: Add the date here (this takes the pressure off of having to do this every day if that is not your jam)
Moon Phases: Check in on what phase the moon is and write it in this space. Bonus: Check the Living by the Light of the Moon Lesson in my Free Spirit Guidebook to help you create rituals or actions to do during each phase) or use this blog post as a guide: How To Connect to the Moon Phases.
Check Boxes: Breathing, Exercise, Meditation, and Vision Board are 4 things I recommend doing as much as possible.
Exercise: Any type of movement that makes you feel good like dancing, yoga, or a walk can count as exercise.
Meditation: You can practice your fave form of meditation, or sit for a few minutes after breathing as your meditation, or listen to the ones I have added to the bonus section online of my book, listen to these on my blog: https://www.kerryburki.com/category/meditation/
Vision Board: Spend a few moments in front of your vision board on a regular basis feeling like all of it has come true. Use the lessons in the Working with Your Thoughts section of my book, Tend To Your Vibration to help you manifest it into life. Don’t have a vision board? Here are some tips: https://www.kerryburki.com/?s=vision+board
Water: Did you know that you are supposed to drink half your body weight in ounces of water each day? I added the average of 8 glasses here even though I personally have to drink more. (Let me know if you want a version of this with more glasses). You can cross the glasses off or color them in with a blue colored pencil. Such a fun way to keep track of water consumption. Drinking water will help you in every area of your life. I promise!
Crystal: Pick a crystal to work with either daily or for a bit of time. You can write down the crystal in this space. I like to either pick one I am drawn to or pick one based on the energy associated with it. You can find out more in my book and also in this post: Pick and Crystal – Mini Reading.
Intuitive Hints and Synchronicities: If you start doing this work on a regular basis, then you will start to see evidence of your dreams coming true and receiving guidance in your daily life. It is so important to record these moments as proof that your efforts are working and to keep your vibration at a level that keeps manifesting more of what you want. I also carry a little notebook around to write these down on the fly. This is inspired by most of my book but especially the Have Fun & Draw In lesson.
Card Pull: I love pulling a card a day after asking “What do I need to know right now?” You can do this at the beginning of the day and reflect back later or do it at the end of the day and notice what comes up. You can also use the printable oracle cards from the online bonus section of my book. They will give you guidance on which lessons might have to most impact on your life right now.
I am grateful for: Lastly, it feels so good to express what you are grateful for on a regular basis. Bonus: What to really feel good? After you write what you are grateful for add “because” and then finish the sentence. This amps up the feeling of gratitude which makes your life that much more enjoyable.
Whew! I promise it won’t take you as long to fill this out as it did to read all of this. Lol! I hope you enjoy bringing this activity into your life.
It is so easy to have your alarm go off, grab your phone, roll out of bed, get coffee, get cranky, and then wonder why your day went the way it did. Especially after during this wacky pandemic!
If you are looking to put some magic into your mornings or your kids are going back to school like mine are and you need a magical morning routine then this post is for you!
I used to hate mornings.
That means I know things have to be quick, easy, and fun in the morning in order for me to do them.
These tips will help you feel guided, sparkly, intuitive, and free-spirited!
If you have more to add, please share in the comments and spread the magical morning love!
4 Tips to Make Your Mornings Magical
Ask for Guidance
Before you get out of bed, even before you open your eyes, you can ask for guidance from the divine. You can connect with God, Universe, Spirit, Mother Earth, or any other way you address a higher power or force. Then simply ask: “Can you please guide me, help me, lead me, move me, show me?” Any variation or all of those. Then stay open to receiving guidance during the day.
Sun Breath or Solar Breath
Also called the Pingala Nadi Breath. Your right nostril is connected to the solar nadi (or channel) in your subtle energy body which is associated with vitality plus masculine and warming energy. Use the first two fingers on your left hand to close your left nostril. Begin breathing deeply through your right nostril. Practice for 3 rounds or 1 or 3 minutes. Then release the left nostril and breathe deeply through both nostrils. Pause and notice how you feel. This breath is featured in my Free Spirit Guidebook.
Pick an animal guide for the day.
You can use the printable animal guide oracle cards that come as a bonus with my Free Spirit Guidebook to shuffle and pick a card as shown in the video. You can also ask for an animal to show up during your day or for the name or vision of one to pop into your mind. Once you see or think of one, then look up the meaning and energy associated with that animal and figure out how that energy can help you in your life right now.
Face east and greet the sun! Moving your body is a great way to start your day. It helps you get out of your head and release stress. If you are not familiar with Sun Salutations then simply watch this video I made a while back sharing different variations to get your morning started right. ***For a simple pick me up you can stand with your palms touching in front of your heart, inhale and lift your arms overhead, exhale and fold forward and touch or reach for your toes (bend your knees slightly), then inhale and roll all the way up, and finish with your palms back at your heart. Do this 3 times and start your day!
Just picking one of these things to do each morning will help make your morning magical!
