Inspiration interview Meditation Rochelle Fox

So, you’re finally here.

I’ve been manifesting this moment, where you’re reading this post for quite some time.

While we’re launching Mindspo, i feel it that i should give you some context as to how this all got started, what we’re actually doing, why we’re doing it, and most important.. how YOU fit into all this. Yes, YOU.

If you’re reading this, I truly believe you’re ready to be part of a movement, because out of the millions of website out there, you’ve somehow ended up here, right now, in this moment in time.

This is not a coincidence, because it’s YOU who creates your own reality. What i mean by that is that there is no mistake as to why you’re here. You’re meant to be here and that makes me freakin excited.

Let’s start at the beginning, because to understand Mindspo and it’s purpose, I feel it’ll help to give you a little background on how this all came to be.

I haven’t always been the same person.
You see there’s ‘Rochelle before finding meditation’ and ‘Rochelle after finding meditation’.

My story of why, when and how I found meditation is a long and personal one. It’s a story I’ll tell in more detail at a later time, but in short I found meditation as a last resort option in trying to tackle PTSD. I was at the darkest point of my life and riddled with depression, anxiety and panic attacks, and to put it bluntly, i was completely freakin lost.
The discovery and practice of meditation saved my life. It pulled me out of a place that I thought I’d never be free from and over time it has completely transformed me from the inside out.

I’m going to take a guess that most of you reading might know me from instagram or Youtube and might see me as a pretty upbeat, glass-is-half-full kinda girl. Well, I used to be the exact opposite, a few years ago my glass used to be three quarters empty and more.

I wore a mask that tricked most people into thinking I was confident and okay, all the while hiding the real & broken me inside.
This act went on for so long that i almost fooled myself that this was ‘normal’. Reality check, being riddled with anxiety, fear and insecurities is not how anyone should live their life.

Now let’s talk about ‘Rochelle after finding meditation’.

Learning and practicing meditation shifted everything for me, it made me stop searching for things outside of myself to find my ‘happiness’ and instead sent me inwards, somewhere I’d never really been before and the place where I finally found my true happiness and peace. My whole thinking has shifted over the years as I’ve kept practicing and dove deeper into my own consciousness.

These days I think deeper than ever before, I ask questions, I know that in life the best things are not things, I have awareness that everything starts in my mind, yet I also know that I’m not my thoughts which in turn gives me power over my mind.

I understand that the present is all there ever is, life exists only right here right now, so it’s important to be grateful and make the most of every moment. I’ve developed the power to create inner peace on demand, any time, anywhere… because it is already within me. I know that I’m light, I’m love and I’m powerful (read that again, because you’re all those things too).

I know that i create my own reality and that everyone else creates theirs too. I now think of the world in terms of energy, frequency and vibration as Nikola Tesla so brilliantly said. I could go on and on.

These new found discoveries have CHANGED me in a BIG WAY. They’ve altered my path and have led me to the discovery of my life’s purpose, which is exactly where Mindspo comes in.

Let me explain…

When I first learnt to mediate, there were few resources and teachers that I felt provided an engaging and relevant voice, that spoke to my generation in the areas of mental health, mindfulness and mediation.

Most places I found were either too deep in spiritual dogma or otherwise giving unicorn and rainbow speeches about topics that are far from unicorns and rainbows.

I’m an ‘a little less bullshit, a little more real’ kinda girl and I saw the need for a new voice that was raw, a bit bad-ass and could help bridge the gap between spirituality, science and being OTT politically correct.

I believe the next generations NEEDS meditation and mind inspiring content, but the problem is these days most of us can’t get though our friends 14 second snapchat without pressing ‘Next’, let alone have the patience to sit through a Guru’s 20 minute talk on the Vedas. (I wish most people did)

I wanted to create a platform to fill that need. And that platform is now Mindspo.

Mindspo stands for ‘Mind Inspiration’ and it’s been born with the mission of producing content and programs that provide value, education and inspiration in a relatable and easy to understand way to help young people become the best versions of themselves.

So why are you here?
Well the thing is Mindspo is not about me. Sure I’m starting this thing, but if you’re reading this, then you’re here for a reason.

– Maybe you’re here because you’re like me and crave good vibes and more inspirational content in your life. If that’s the case, we’ve got plenty of that coming up, so add us to your favourites list and subscribe to our mailing list for a dose of weekly good vibes and no bullshit.

– Maybe you’re here because it’s high time you learnt meditation in an easy to understand way designed with you mind. If you can relate to any of the struggles I’ve explained above or you’re stresses out, unhappy and looking for more, then I would love you to join our monthly Mindspo Meditation course, which won’t just teach you how to meditate, but give you all the tools you need to make it a new life changing habit.

And when you purchase the course, you’ll also be helping us reach our funding goal of building a school in the developing world that’ll be providing education to thousands of children through our charity partner ‘Pencils of Promise’ which you can read more about here.

– Maybe you’re here because you have a story to tell when it comes to your own struggles with mental health so we can help break the stigma or some knowledge to share with the world, in which case head to our contact page because I want to hear from YOU!

– Or maybe you’re here because this letter is meant to plant a seed in your mind that you’re not quite ready to let flower yet, which is 100% okay because guess what, when you’re ready you’ll know where we’ll be. Right her waiting for you.

Whatever the reason, I believe you being here right now is not a coincidence. I believe you’re here for a purpose that’s bigger than yourself and whatever that is it’s my hope that Mindspo helps your discover that purpose.

There’s an insanely large vision for what Mindspo is meant to be and how it will serve this world and I can’t make that vision a reality all on my own.

As Margret Mead once said “A small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

I would like YOU to be part of that group of thoughtful, committed citizens with a dream to change the world and I would like Mindspo be a vehicle to help us all realize that dream.

Sending you good vibes,Always.

P.S you’re a light beam and i love you, because you are me and I am you and we are one 🙂


PP.S Soll I love you. Thank you for always supporting my dreams for backing me up 110% and for encouraging me to dive deeper into my mind enabling me to create mindspo. You’re the most introspective human I’ve ever met and you inspire me daily to be the best version of myself. I could not have done any of this without your support, creativity and wisdom. We create our own reality and I am so happy my reality is here right now starting all this with you.
