At its core, Vibe Shifting is a blog about happiness; what it is, what it means, and how to find it. It’s about realizing that being happy is a choice, and that this choice is one that each of us must make for ourselves. It’s about taking responsibility for our own lives. It’s about choosing to think positively and reach for the better feeling thoughts, and about increasing our understanding of how we can make this choice. It’s about empowering people to be the change they want to see in the world, and about providing resources and support to help each other along the way.
Vibe Shifting is about becoming who we are meant to be.
How Vibe Shifting can help you
To support you in your becoming, you’ll find an array of resources to help you out, from blog articles to podcast episodes and videos.
In terms of topic areas, you’ll find articles here about:
- Strategies and techniques to help you turn your dreams into reality, because I believe that our dreams are in our hearts for a reason and that when we find ways to live those dreams and express the things that are truly important to us, that is when we shine the brightest and have our biggest positive impact on the world around us.
- Mental health and healthy living, because I believe that health has a big impact on our happiness, so maintaining and promoting that health is important.
- Various philosophies and schools of thought from all around the world that will help to further your understanding of various ways to promote happiness.
Vibe Shifting is still evolving as it grows, and I’m very excited about how far it has come and about all that is become since I started it. This is truly a labour of love for me, and I hope that you enjoy your time here as much as I’ve been enjoying creating this space for you.

So who, exactly, runs this site?
That’d be me. (Hi there, my name is Nathalie Thompson…)
I’m not going to lie to you. I’ve been through some stuff in my life. And when you survive enough stuff, it makes you start to think the “deep” thoughts about Life, the Universe and Everything. And that either makes you interesting or it drives you crazy. I like to think I’ve become interesting rather than crazy, although some might argue that point. 😉
In any case, Vibe Shifting originally started with one of those deep thoughts: what did I want out of life? And it came down to the basics. I wanted to be happy; really, truly, deep-down to my core, fundamentally, honestly and simply… happy. I wanted to experience more joy. I wanted to laugh more. I wanted to do creative things that fed my soul and increased not only my own happiness, but that of the people around me, too. I wanted to make a difference. And I wanted to find a way to help people who also wanted these things. So I started a blog to share my thoughts and any resources I found to be particularly helpful in this endeavour. I was hoping it would help me organize my thoughts and maybe draw a tribe of other like-minded people together so we could all connect.
And then, over the first year, the blog grew, expanding out into a weekly podcast and a presence on most of the major social media sites, with plans for a book to be released on Amazon in 2014. I have no idea where it’s going from here, but I’m enjoying the whole process as it evolves, and I’m going to borrow a quote from David Bowie and say “I promise it won’t be boring!”
So here’s to the journey… because that’s really what it’s all about.
