Life takes us in many directions, often pulling us a great distance from the roots of our past or the people we love most. Learn to identify your core group of people, your tribe, which will add years to your life. This is an indisputable element of our basic needs for a healthy, happy life. Anyone can define their tribe, and in 3 minutes I will show you how.

I made a mental list of people that I feel most comfortable with and was reminded of how important they are to me. I need to make more time with them! Nurture your tribe.

My tribe: few, closest people in my life
“My tribe” or the people that I feel safe, comfortable, and happy with are Nanny and Boom Pa, Grammy and Papa, Elizabeth, Somer, Sunny, Devlin, my parents, Aunt Debbie, Jordan, Ally. Some people I listed don’t always make me feel safe or welcome even but for the most part, these people in my life make me feel accepted and loved. They cherish me and for that I keep them close to my heart. It’s mostly family that I stay close too also; not many people stay in touch or work on our relationship- including myself. I need to work on this area of my life!

This was a nice reminder to never let too much time go by without checking in with my tribe(s).

I felt inner strength an noticed that I’ve been having a lot of silly things on my mind
I learned that I need to reach out to those who make my world brighter an be there for others more, as well as take responsibility for my actions and become accountable. Then think less of the people who don’t know me an more on quality relationships in all of my routines.

Creating my tribe
Although I don’t have a lot of “close” friends I do have a couple who make me feel safe,comfortable,that I don’t have to impress...sometimes life happens and I forget but this right here reminded me that I have them and it feel awesome.

your tribe is a very special connection with people. you don’t need a tribe of many in order to bring joy or meaning into your life.

Multiple Tribes
I work within this system of ”tribes” all the time! One of my favorites? My Aura tribe! I feel as close to some of my Aura friends as I do to many people I have known for years in real life! Likely this is due to the level of intimacy we share here! Our practice opens us up to each other, and leaves us able to share, be open and honest, build on strengths, overcome weaknesses...enjoy each other, appreciate our unique experiences, and most of all? Learn and support! The kind of blind distance inherent in the Aura platform allows us to ”be” there for each other, regardless of background, location, belief systems, etc.

Getting tribal
Tribe mentality is something i like i have a big wonderful family and great friends but moving around a lot and being “busy” has made it hard so really putting an effort into those important for you and dedicating yourselves to improving each others lives really does sound rewarding

My 1st dive into the "life coach" section which I didn't even know existed. The topic of my "tribe" is something that I've learned the value of recently and now work hard at cultivating my close relationships.

This being my first life coaching experience.. i really enjoyed it. It made me open my mind to who i should have in my life and why i should have them. I definitely feel as if quality over quantity plays a huge role in my life. I need to be surrounded by positive vibes and energy.

I don’t have a lot close friends that are true friends.. bcz people can say there ur friends but turn around talk about u!! I do have couple of friends that are from my social media that lives in diff parts of the world, that i can talk live with....that,I can truly trust that cares!! Unlike the people in my surrounding or a family member. Sad but true.. sometimes u family member are worst than a outsider..with the exception of my grandparents that always been there for me..

Actually make more of an effort to the people who do care there are to many fake friends who will call u when they want something and that’s not right a real friend u will speak to up to 6 times a week and stay close to ur family members if u fallen out with one of them try to reconnect for ur kids live I remember when I was younger my mum fell out with my nanny and aunt then my mum had to see her in hospital keep them close don’t take them for granted 😇

Thank you!
This made me think about the people I may not consider "my tribe" because my life is so busy...I may not notice the people who truly care about me and care about my life and other in it....such as at work, at my local store, neighbors etc.

Remembering the Tribe
The universe definitely sent me something with this one. Lately I have been thinking about this a lot and who means the most to me and I have found it very hard to focus on the people who matter most and letting go of the rest. It was the friendly reminder and support needed!

Great idea
I really related to what she said. I don’t think I have even three people in my tribe right now, so my first goal is to work on that. Still, great practical advice. Want to hear more from this series.

Tribe Searching
I really needed this today, I have finally gotten my cat back and now I’m basically not seen as family anymore in the eyes of parents. It hurts still but this helped me to remind me that you can’t chose what family you were born into but you can chose those you consider your tribe or family. I also need to remember that I have people who love me for me already and that I need to focus on them more than thinking about the failed relationship with my blood family.

This reminder was wonderful. Focusing on "my tribe members" helps me feel connected and positive. It also reminds me to acknowledge and maybe let go of the friendships who have not filled me or are just too difficult. Thank you for this gift.

Finding my tribe
I’ve been in search for my tribe for some time now. I think the hard part is I have really good friends in a lot of different areas in my life and I wish I could just merge them all together into one big tribe. I guess it’s okay though that they’re all from different walks of life. Maybe someday I’ll bring everyone together somehow

I learned that expressly formalising attachments is a way to being happier long term.

Tribe-ing...
I feel there is certainly a lot of good tribal vibes here at Aura and want to thank everyone who has read, commented on and added to my (sometimes lengthy) insights, preachings & ramblings!! I feel very fortunate to have helped expand our tribe here and want to apologize for any toes I may have stepped on along the way. That was not my intention, but sometimes my Passion gets the best of me! I look forward to contributing even more positive vibes in the future as we continue to raise the Collective Consciousness of our planet for good!! I am also looking forward to forming a new tribe around my blog/website currently being set up. I hope to have it up & ready for my book release in the fall. Then starting next year and into the future, focusing more of my Energy on helping youth to transition into more useful, productive & mindful lives. After all, they are our future and they need the help and guidance of a caring, loving, mindful tribe, so I invite you all to join me as we help this happen. Namaste 🙏 ❤️☮️🍀

Add Years to Your Life with a Tribe
We need our tribes. Too often, though, we neglect them with excuses. We move away, there are obligations at work, there is the caring for of others, we withdraw because we feel alone, or even isloate due to stress - all.of it without Tribal support. Yet, these a the very reasons we need ones who know us best through years of connection, are newer souls who ask how we are and mean it, or are those that truly make us happy and accountable. Connect to new places and acts to form another, more currently suited Tribe. You will always know where to find your original Tribe. This energy gives life to our souls and years to our lives.❤️

Honestly, I expected something more ‘meditation’-ish (??!), surprised to hear this track instead. But I genuinely loved it, being away from home is hard sometimes (let’s face it: it’s hard every single day) but these three minutes helped me staying focused on who’s important..I’ll save it for the next time I’ll feel a little bit homesick!

I chose that I couldn’t sleep and this didn’t help... I have great friends that I’m really close to. I wanted to relax before bed not make a “tribe guide”

I realized that the closest people to me that make me the most comfortable would be 1. My mom -Because her heart is so big and she cares so much for me & I love her 2. Autumn-She also loves me and she a unique yet funny since of humor that I also have 3.Caden - he is caring and really funny and does a lot for me I love all three of them 4. Sierra -We don’t really bond together but I’d definitely hurt someone for her

But I also have other tribe members that I would love to be close with -- my FAMpalaya. Also, I want to rekindle relationships with my original friends - Cherlaine and Ate Maecy. Kathe could be too, if she wasn't much of a talkshit.

relationships
every relationship I’m our lives is so important. this meditation also reminded me how important it is to let go of those who do not bring the positivity you seek from a relationship. it’s better to have healthy people and healthy , strong relationships surrounding you rather than weak ones and being too worried about being mean to others. take charge in your life, let go of all the negativity. ♡

Quality over quantity
Friendships require time and care. Taking time to bond with those who you feel most comfortable with is very healthy. The ones who are genuine will ask questions about your life, make you laugh, listen and enjoy sharing with one another.

Your Tribe
It was a good reminder that for friendships/relationships to work, you must stay committed to being in their lives through thick and thin.Sometimes, in moments of frustration or anger, its easy to throw away those connections, but the advice to document and remember why those people are important to you is sound and helpful.

No matter distance or quantity. your tribe is important when you make the effort to realize they are there for you.

I felt so sorry for me as I didn't find names to write although there are a lot of people love me
Live is complicated but it comes so easy when there are people you love and loving you too by your side. We can face all terrible things that happen to us with them. We should have close friends who we can feel safe by their persistence. It's difficult specially for people who can't deal well with society like me. Go and find your safe zone.

MY TRIBE
my tribe is family focused. Unfortunately my social anxiety hinders me being able to make & keep friends. This is something I’m awaiting help on though. I know how important socialising and friendships are for us at humans. I have little hobbies that involve others so looking into clubs would be a fantastic start for me. TRIBE MEMBERS; People I feel truly comfortable with and don’t feel the need to impress them.

My tribe is a mix of friends and family. First and foremost is my mom. She is my safe place. She listens and validates and knows what I want, usually before I do. My husband is my tribe.

My Tribe is me
I presume that my tribe is within me. But any person with who I’m talking or interacting is my teacher or my tribal brother. It’s depends on environment of my life, sometimes it’s a job sometimes it’s a hobby. But the most important thing is, if I’m happy and gratitude all the people/tribal souls around me gonna be ok.
