Can’t Get Out of Your Head? Try This.

Raise Your Vibration
Kayla MacArthur

This forest is unlike any I’ve ever known. It smells sweet. A scent you’d get from sap and pine needles baking in the heat. The air is clean and cool. The trees are strange—short, scrubby pines, twisting towards the sky. The wind whooshes through their tops, making a sound like ocean waves in the distance. I secretly wonder if they learned to imitate the sea from living next to it. Wandering down the pine needle path, sun spots dance in the grass and moss speckles the forest floor. There’s magic here. It’s palpable and real and I stop to breathe it in, taking it into me. When you’re grounded, you’re...

The Art of Getting Unstuck: Coming Home to Who You Want to Be

Inspiration, Raise Your Vibration
Kayla MacArthur

I carefully lowered myself into a small, shallow pool. It was worn in the smooth rock that spread over the Earth like butter. The water was warm and soft on my skin. Carefully lying back, I found the perfect nook to rest my head in. I took a deep breath and let my hands float to the surface of the water. Before me, sweeping blue mountains rose into rounded peaks. A river rushed forward, bubbling it’s way around boulders and rocks that dotted the bank. The air was pure and fresh with a hint of pine floating off the forest that flanked each side of the river. I sunk deep...

What It Means to Love Your Darkness & Why Your Success Depends On It

Raise Your Vibration, Self-Care
Manifest More Success

I’m inflexible and rigid. An emotional roller coaster. I talk way more than I listen to the ones closest to me. I forget things easily. I can be so focused on what’s going on in my head that I completely miss whole parts of a conversation with Jon. I don’t have sustainable energy. I’m typically late for anything that requires my physical presence. And you know what? I love all of it. I love all of me. But it hasn’t always been like this. There’s a monstrous epidemic in our culture where we have become obsessed with our personal shortcomings; with all of the things we don’t like about ourselves....

What a Lack of Motivation Really Means & What to Do About It

Personal Story, Raise Your Vibration
Manifest More Success

It rained in Massachusetts for a month. Every day was cloudy, cold, and bleak. Winter was clinging desperately, digging its heels into the fresh soil of Spring. While it would have been easy to blame my lack of motivation on Winter’s inability to surrender, I knew deep down that my energetic rut wasn’t about the weather, but rather—it was the same old pattern coming back for more. The pattern you think you’ve healed, only to have it show up on your doorstep wrapped in different paper. For a good majority of my life, I’ve struggled with cycling through energetic highs and lows. The highs are always great. Who doesn’t love...

What Tulum Taught Me About Manifesting More Success

Inspiration, Personal Story, Self-Care
Kayla MacArthur

It took me THREE DAYS to completely turn off. In one of the most beautiful paradises I’ve ever been to, it took me three whole days to leave the computer locked in the tent and to pack the personal development books back in my suitcase. Three whole days—lost to the illusion that one can be “on” while simultaneously turning “off.” Tulum, with all of its beauty and magic, taught me how to relax again. And I’m not talking about the kind where you kid yourself by having one foot in and one foot out—I’m talking FULL ON RELAXATION. The kind where you melt into one of the canvas beds propped...

What is Your Anchor?

Personal Story, Raise Your Vibration, Self-Care
Kayla MacArthur

Pursuing and living your calling is one of the highest forms of WAKING UP. When you’re anchored in the world by your calling, you feel a sense of fulfillment that is no match to what any relationship, any drug, or any amount of money from a soul-sucking job could provide. I know this because I’ve experienced it myself. There was a time in my life when I was anchored in the world not by my calling, but by the men I dated. They WERE MY WORLD and I let my life revolve around them. I let them be my purpose—to the point where I became obsessed. So obsessed that I...

How to Move Through Disappointment with Grace & Ease

Manifesting Mindset, Raise Your Vibration
Kayla MacArthur

Disappointment is cruel. It steals your presence. And litters your mind with fear. It’s that sinking sensation in the pit of your stomach. That heaviness in your heart. It’s enough to knock you off your feet sometimes. And doubt your ability to manifest and make waves in the world. As I’m nestled in front of the fire on this brisk winter day, I’m dwelling on disappointment. It’s happened for me this week. It’s happened for my community. It’s one of those things that happens for all of us. But as I stare into the flames, licking the cracked white ash of the wood, it becomes so clear that despite the...

How You Keep Self-Sabotage Alive & What You Can Do to Heal It

Manifesting Mindset, Money
Manifest More Success

For most of my life, I’ve avoided anything to do with managing money. I distinctly remember resisting my Dad’s attempts to teach me about budgeting, about the stock market, about taking out loans, about doing taxes. And if you asked me why I was so resistant, I wouldn’t have had an answer for you—that is, up until recently. Up until I was doing my own deep mindset work and I uncovered a belief that I bought into a long time ago. The belief that money equals pain. A belief that formed as I witnessed my parents occasionally fight about money. A belief that formed as I witnessed my Dad’s anxiety...
