Vitamins for the
Trusting Your Vibes
by Sonia Choquette, Ph.D.
Each time you choose
to listen to your inner voice (or your sixth sense), you
strengthen your commitment to live an authentic,
self-directed, and personally empowered life. Your inner
voice is communicated through subtle vibrations
pulsating throughout your body, otherwise known as
Trusting your vibes relieves you of the
stress of figuring things out—it saves you the wear and
tear of worry and helps you begin living a life of ease
and flow. Listening to your inner voice reflects your
commitment to live a six-sensory life—the one you were
designed to live as a Divine Child of the Universe. Just
as taking vitamins strengthens and empowers your body,
trusting your vibes strengthens and empowers your soul.
Yet, as you know, just occasionally popping a
multivitamin won’t do you much good—in the same way,
it’s only when you trust your vibes on a daily basis
over time that you’ll begin to feel, see, and experience
a positive and powerful difference in your life.
Like vitamins for the
soul, trusting your vibes strengthens your spirit,
enhances your creativity, improves your decision-making
ability; and helps you become a more empowered, joyful,
and healthy person. Every time you choose to do so, you
give your soul a dose of love and acceptance. And daily
doses of love and acceptance heal your heart and restore
you to a brighter, happier existence.
Learning to trust your
vibes is possible, but if you want to see a real
difference in your life, you must make it a habit.
Consider each page in this book a daily fortification
for your soul—that is, one page should be consulted
every day. Open it at random, and take the offering on
that page as your “vitamin”—you’ll soon discover that
the wisdom you receive is perfect for that day. The
synchronicity will be undeniable. And the results, if
you take your psychic vitamins regularly, will speak for
Vitamins for the
“I Am . . .”
Did you know that the
words I am . . . are very powerful metaphysical
words? Whenever you say, “I am,” you proclaim who you
are and want to be to the Universe, to others, and to
yourself—and the Universe agrees and makes it so. That’s
why it’s so damaging to make proclamations such as: “I
am unhappy,” “I am broke,” “I am sick,” “I am fat,” or
“I am unlovable”—these statements absolutely attract
these unpleasant conditions. This week, use the power
mantra “I am . . . ” to create the exact conditions you
want in your life.
• “I am healthy.”
• “I am balanced.”
• “I am happily
• “I am loved and
• “I am beautiful.”
• “I am a
prosperous, creative being.”
• “I am joyful,
lighthearted, and blessed in every way.”
Begin with Grace
The Chinese have a
saying: “The way it begins is the way it ends.”
Begin your new project
by affirming: “I am a spiritual being, protected by
angels, helped by guides, and infinitely loved and
supported by God.”

Listen to Your
Listen to your Higher
Self over everything else: It will naturally guide you
to what it is you really need for change and serenity.
When you commit to
living the six-sensory life, you begin your spiritual
healing. You’ll recover your childlike joy, you’ll be
able to love yourself in a deep and profound way, and
you’ll start to feel how magnificent you really are.
Making the decision to
trust your vibes is definitely a healing experience. . .
Ask your Higher Self
to help you in your new commitment. Approach your
changes with a sense of humor and playfulness. Don’t
worry about whether or not your vibes are “right”—just
listen for what’s true for you for now. And go with it
(that’s the hardest part).
The more adjustable
you are, the more your Higher Self can guide you. And be
physical about it: Get out of your head. Dance as much
as you can. Stretch! Bend! Twist!
Write to Your
Here’s an exciting
tool for contacting your Higher Self when you need
guidance: Write your Higher Self a letter, asking for
help on whatever matter concerns you, and then imagine
that your Higher Self is answering you.
As easy as this is, it
works. By simply opening the way for your Higher Self to
communicate, it will. You’ll be amazed at the bright
ideas, suggestions, and solutions that come pouring
through your pen.
It’s even better to make
this a daily practice, as doing so allows your inner
genius to go to work for you in every way.
How has your Higher
Self helped you this week? What gifts from your “inner
teacher” have you received? Are you enjoying this whole
new way of life? Are you starting to notice just how fun
it is to go with the flow and trust your vibes instead
Do you like having the
Universe on your side?
It’s in the Heart
We find our inner
voice and the path to personal joy in the heart. It
leads the way to a broader, deeper perspective and
understanding of both ourselves and others. It brings
our attention to the unseen subtle aspects of life and
directs us toward a more creative, more loving, and more
healing approach to life’s difficulties.
Take a Deep Breath
Every time you need
guidance, counsel, direction, or simple reassurance from
Divine Spirit, close your eyes, take in a few
deep-cleansing breaths, and then place your attention
directly on your heart.
Allow your focus to rest
there quietly for a moment or two, and then ask your
heart to guide you. Trust whatever feelings come
up—don’t censor or discount a thing.
If nothing comes to
you immediately, don’t worry. Relax. Remain open and
patient. Guidance will come before you know it.
Listening to your
heart and following your vibes will instill in you a
profound sense of confidence and security. It isn’t an
assurance that arises from an egotistical sense of “I’m
so wonderful”—rather, it’s a sense of relief, knowing
that you don’t have to do it on your own. You only have
to do your part, and the Universe will meet you halfway
with support, protection, and guidance.
