When I first came across Jordan Younger (aka @thebalancedblonde), it was 2016, I was in New York, and just beginning my own transformative, healing journey. Like me, Jordan was on her own profound healing journey that included a lot of trial and error, but most importantly, it included a willingness to keep evolving, changing, and learning (unlike many content creators who have overly branded themselves to the point of being restricted by their own identities!).

Now, but eight years later, Jordan has grown her mission, her story, her audience, and her purpose far beyond her initial OG Instagram status. She has a Forbes-acclaimed podcast (for seven years strong now), thriving social media community, meditation & membership platform, books, and soul inspiring retreats and events in the hopes of fostering a deeper connection with people looking to start a healing journey of their own. 

We sat down with the mother, author, intuitive, meditation and yoga teacher, and serial entrepreneur (who is expecting the arrival of her daughter this coming July!) to learn more about how she has held space for herself along the way and what’s in store for her (and her future self!).

TQE: What was your journey to becoming The Balanced Blonde?

JY: I started blogging in 2013 to document my vegan lifestyle, and I always say that I evolved from a food blogger to a lifestyle blogger in a matter of minutes because I have never been someone to keep things brief or not speak from the heart. 

So, after blogging for about six months, I had amassed the most beautiful and loyal following who really knew me on a personal level because of how deeply I shared. After a year-and-a-half of blogging as The Blonde Vegan, I moved away from the vegan label (for the first of many times, haha) and ended up rebranding to The Balanced Blonde

From there, I ended up leaving graduate school to be a full-time blogger and content creator. A few years later, the podcast came, then books, courses, and a full-blown lifestyle. I can’t imagine doing anything else, and I feel so grateful for my longtime readers, supporters, and listeners (and my newbies!!) of all things TBB. I call them “my besties from all over the world” because that’s exactly what they are. 

TQE: What does a day-in-the-life of The Balanced Blonde look like? What is your routine for daily healing, manifesting, etc.?

JY: Right now it’s kind of all over the place since I am a toddler mama and about to have a new baby! But ideally, I wake up and do my morning routine of stretching, yoga, matcha, journaling, and TQM reprogramming tracks. If I am channeling for my membership platform that day, then I will go into the Akashic Records or the fifth dimension to get inspiration. I spend a lot of time healing my body and doing movement and bodywork to maintain feeling good in this sensitive, sensitive vessel! And then I either go into the podcast studio for interviews, go to the beach to work on my book, or work on the backend of the business by recording all day. I try to shut off by 5:30pm or so, and then we always go on a family walk. That family walk is the HIGHLIGHT of my day. Then it’s family time! Dinner, bath time, bed time for my son, and then quality time with my husband where we love to read together, catch up on our days, watch our favorite shows, etc. And I am a forever night owl, so sometimes I write at night and do a lot of channeling during that time. It’s truly my dream set up right now and I am very grateful for that. 

TQE: How has your relationship to “wellness” changed over time?

JY: When I was in my early 20s, I thought that wellness meant drinking green juice, eating kale salads, doing yoga, and running marathons. The more I’ve learned, the more I have realized that true wellness is an inside-out job. 

It has as much to do with the thoughts we think, the words we speak to ourselves and others, what our daily routines and habits are, and our innermost thoughts and beliefs as it does with what we eat and/or how we move our bodies. Wellness also means being willing to look in the mirror and be honest with ourselves about what needs to shift. It means feeling our emotions—all of them—and choosing not to disassociate from the harder parts of life. Wellness is not just a lifestyle but a full-on mindset and approach to life—and my goal is to live with it at the forefront of my life as much as possible! 

TQE: Where are you currently with your healing journey—emotionally, physically, spiritually, and otherwise?

JY: Oh man, what an amazing question. I am currently deep into my third trimester of pregnancy, so I have a lot going on on a mind-body-soul level there. I also have a two-and-a-half-year-old, so the initiation into motherhood over these last few years has brought up so much for me in a healing sense and has been so unbelievably beautiful (and challenging, and amazing, and fun, and hard, and all the things!). 

On a physical level, I like to believe that I have evolved from the depths of my chronic illness journey. I spent many years very sick with Lyme disease, mold illness, co-infections, EBV, etc., and it was truly a doozy, very much shaping who I am. Now I am much more focused on the spiritual and emotional side of my evolution. I have made the commitment to “timeline hop” into a healthier, happier reality and it WORKED, so my life’s mission is to teach others how to do the same! 

TQE: What do you hope people will take away from the content you share?

JY: Ultimately, I hope it helps people feel less alone. I have been told that I have the ability to talk about heavy topics in a light way, and I really love that. I also really want to show people that it’s more than okay to be “different” than everyone else. There is no set place you should be at any given moment in time, and that’s the beauty of it. We all have magnificent gifts and such uniqueness and that should be celebrated. I talk about very out there things these days like fifth dimensional consciousness, channeling, angels, quantum leaping, and beyond, and I hope it inspires others to live a more aligned and rooted life. 

TQE: How have you managed to call in your higher self while continuing to reground + reset?

JY: This is a practice that I work on cultivating and prioritizing every day. I wake up, I do my stretches and journaling, I spend time with my son, and then I dive into The Quantum Method reprogramming tracks. Through those tracks, which are a combination of meditations, affirmations, pep talks, binaural beats, channeled wisdom, and beyond, I connect with my higher self. That has been the greatest catalyst for change and grounding in my life. As far as regrounding and resetting goes, nature works wonders. Feet in the sand by the ocean after a long week is truly my love language. 

TQE: What are different ways for the everyday person to more deeply connect with their intuition—especially in modern-day society where there is so much stimuli and influence?

JY: First and foremost, sit in stillness with yourself. You said it best, there is so much stimuli and outside influence in the world we live in today. Most of us are just going through the motions and not even taking the time to get still and get quiet with ourselves. Every day, in whichever way you choose, spend a little quality time with yourself. Whether it’s meditating, journaling, taking a hot shower, or driving in your car without music/podcasts/phone calls/etc., take that time and get to know yourself from the inside out. From there, your intuition will speak to you loud and clear. 

TQE: Who have been some of your most impactful “teachers” or resources? (Can include actual people / mentors, books, relationships, learnings, etc.)

JY: Louise Hay, Nikki Novo (my medium mentor), Joe Dispenza, my husband, my parents, and my son. 

TQE: Can you tell me a bit more about Celestial living? How did you come up with the Celestial Diet, and how does it work?

JY: I created the Celestial Diet & Lifestyle when I was healing from Lyme because—in true Jordan fashion— I had found what worked for me in my healing journey and was thrilled to be able to share it far and wide with others. 

We have had so many incredible people embark on The Celestial Lifestyle to aid in their healing journey, and to this day it is one of my favorite accomplishments and programs. It is essentially an anti-inflammatory diet rooted in plant-based food, and is also mostly salt-oil-sugar-free. It is meant to be used as a tool to heal, and then most people (including myself) are able to incorporate more foods as they start to feel better. It is a method I used when acutely ill, and it worked wonders for me. And as with everything I do… it was fully channeled from another realm, hence the name! 

TQE: What are some exciting things we can look forward to from TBB in the future?

JY: Right now I am pouring my full heart and soul into all things The Quantum Method! That is my membership platform full of reprogramming tracks, affirmations, meditations, bonus podcasts, and beyond. I am also in the midst of creating a course for TQM, which will guide others on their own manifestation & healing journeys in an even deeper way. In the near future, we are also developing an app, and soon enough my long-awaited healing book will come out (we shall see when) that I have been working on for many years. And of course, baby girl coming in just a few weeks… ah!
