The Power of a Story


I recently attended Mary Ellen O’Brien’s Raise Your Vibration workshop and it was fantastic! I wanted to share with you what we did because it was so powerful. The only goal of the workshop was to, well— raise our vibration! Some of you may be wondering, what does that mean? The best way of describing raising your vibration is to notice itswhen effects—you just feel good after you “raise your vibration”— and things that needed to change in your life start shifting in a positive direction.

There are various ways to raise your vibration, such as meditating, running, or receiving energy work— so I was curious what Mary Ellen was going to do with us.

It turns out—it was brilliant! She had us remember a time in our lives when we felt really good. I mean, reeeeallly gooooood. You know those times when everything just seems to fall into place? Where you feel unstoppable! Where you think of something and it arrives momentarily—well maybe not the last one, but you get the picture. Essentially you are in the “flow.”

She had us relive that particular time in our life by having us tell a partner all the awesome coincidences and details that seemed to magically orchestrate themselves for our greatness.

The experience was amazing and very empowering! Not only did it stir up incredible memories about when I received a free vacation at the beach with an ocean view or found the perfect apartment overlooking the water, it made me realize how much I have to be thankful for.

My life is pretty incredible on a daily basis. It’s definitely something I’m aware of, but when you are told to unabashedly disclose the awesomeness that is your life, you can’t help but smile and be overwhelmed with gratitude!

As I basked in everything I was feeling, I took a moment to glance around the room and take in all that Mary Ellen had created with us. I noticed everyone in the room was beaming!!!

The vibration of the room drastically changed from when everyone was first settling to their seats. As everyone sank deeper and deeper into their stories the smiles across the room multiplied and it appeared people could hardly contain themselves!

It didn’t matter whether you were telling your story or listening to someone’s story—it was palpable how happy everyone was! The room was buzzing with energy!

I’m so grateful for the opportunity to witness and be a part of so many people raising their vibration! It was great to see them remembering what they are thankful for, and above all else, recognizing—without a doubt—there was some sort of divine hand in all that transpired in their story.

It turned out, many of the stories were based on people following their intuition—people doing things because it just “felt” right. Many didn’t know how things were going to work out when they began that particular journey, but something in them just trusted everything would work out fine—and it did.

I highly recommend you try this with a friend. Raising your vibration is exactly what you need to do to start attracting the things you want in life. Feel free to post your incredible story below. You will rediscover things about yourself and you will raise the vibration of all who read about it!
