Hello from Meenu
I don’t have a traditional hero story, you know the one where I slay the beast and come out victorious and ta-daaaa, life is now magical... honestly, do we really believe that’s how change works?
What I have is a history of thoughtful shifts that have transformed the landscape of my entire life. What I also have is the willpower to face outdated habits with grace, stability, and clarity.
Mine has been a softer, slower journey to live my truth in every moment. I know, it’s not very sexy, but hear me out! What I’ve stumbled across could radically change the way you engage, well… everything!
In my early 20s, I had my rock-bottom moment.
It’s that point when I found myself completely paralyzed by negative thoughts swirling in my brain. I was no longer inspired by my ‘success’ checklist: the 9-5 grind to become a millionaire, buying stuff endlessly to feel like I was making it, or the goal to get married and start a family with children.
I saw a world where greed drove people to compromise their values and be unkind to each other, and where our shared planet was suffering from the horrible consequences of our habits. It was all too much.
Numbing myself from reality with social scrolling, binge-worthy series, and way too many lattes made me a zombie in my own life. These distractions only masked my inner pain.
I was living in hell: 1-part my stuff, 1-part the past, and 1-part humanity’s indifference. I wanted to change everything, but figuring out where to start was part of the nightmare.
My parents had warned me that making good choices in a world full of Maya (the illusion of happiness) would be difficult. The rebel in me wanted to keep fighting to do the right thing, but another part of me wanted to be swept away by a simple life of fun, laughter, and enjoyment. This created a giant rift between my inner beliefs and my outer actions.
At that time, depression made its home in my head and my heart. It started with a horrible sense of guilt in the pit of my stomach each morning. It ended with me contemplating suicide because I had no idea how to make my life meaningful again.
Luckily, I had a support system that wasn’t afraid to acknowledge and address my mental illness.
My family suggested I get therapy and my sister signed me up for my first session. Going to therapy and admitting I needed help was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. I had to take that leap of faith and trust that I would land on the other side.
After a messy, scary, and tearful year of gritty inner work, I started to feel something akin to stability. I realized that I didn’t actually want to end my life, I just wanted to do life differently.
I became determined to live a truly happy life from the inside out.
I relied heavily on the wisdom of two seriously amazing humans, my parents! In fact, my ancestors happen to be Sikh, a spiritual path from India that underpins modern-day Kundalini Yoga. I took Kundalini teacher training and many more yoga certifications that resonated for me. I did year-long meditations, ate clean and simple meals, and visited ashrams the world over in my search for answers. I was able to integrate tools from many spiritual paths to start seeing from a new perspective.
The journey to align my outer actions and inner thoughts needed to be simplified every step of the way, broken down into doable chunks. Each conscious shift nudged me towards the life I wanted to be living.
My slower approach kept me from being overwhelmed by extreme health & wellness trends. It meant I was taking time to integrate each new habit in my own way, at my own pace.
Through the process of integration, I gained a ton of confidence, a solid foundation for my life, and ultimately the willpower to face any challenge. I also found an amazing community of humans who were going through the exact same things! I felt powerful, motivated, and engaged again. For the first time there was lightness in each step I took.
As a natural leader, I began guiding those around me out of overwhelm. It started with 1-1 mentorships, and led to uplifting group gatherings, awakening journeys, and even delivering courses on spiritual concepts for Western living.
With my guidance, people have not only shifted their mindsets but also taken REAL, TANGIBLE action towards a more conscious lifestyle.
That’s the idea behind Living Atman:
To create a global community of engaged citizens who truly have the power to change the world!
Whether it’s eating more plants, diverting plastic from the landfill, managing negative thoughts, finding safer product alternatives, or taking a journey for your spirit; living in alignment with our values is the single greatest source of love, happiness, stability, freedom, and enthusiasm. Living our values creates the kind of shared future we all want to see.
Through Living Atman, I aim to bring into expression the full beauty of each unique individual that joins our community.
