Tribe

Tribe

My blood family raised me and for that I am beyond grateful.  My yoga tribe on the other hand, re-members me.  The knowing of tribe members is unexplainable and may show up as synchronicities or mystical encounters.  And while I agree that some of us may feel that with our blood family, others do not.  When I sit in circle for weeks on end with yoga teacher trainees … it’s easy to vibrate in the word tribe.

There is no time for illusion, no time for over-processing, no time for sitting in the past.  We need leaders that are awake and alive to the truth.  We need Spiritual Ninjas aligning their body, mind and soul with Divine guidance. 

 

 

 

Universal Love

Universal Love

When we love ourselves, really love ourselves, we begin to only notice love outside ourselves. Meaning we pay attention to and become magnets for … love.  We choose to love everything about ourselves, so we can love everything outside of ourselves. And that mirror we look into only reflects love.

New Beginnings

New Beginnings

11:11 is a powerful portal of psychic energy and enhanced awareness.  It’s an opportunity to jump into the next realm of your life with laser sharp focus, and an expanded heart. 

Value

Value

I have a question for you. 

What do you value?  In your life?  About your life?  What’s important to you?  Who do you value? What does it mean to value something?  What do you hold near and dear to your heart, your mind, and your thoughts?  This is important information to know, because your value system affects all areas of your life. 

I am a firm believer that your thoughts create your words, and then your words create your life. 

Compassionate Leadership

Compassionate Leadership

I have been talking about the balance of the Sacred Masculine and Divine Feminine for years now. It's infiltrated my heart, my writing, and all my relationships. When these energies come into balance we will experience a new world.  And it doesn’t have to be some big grandiose thing either.  It can be as simple as finding that balance within yourself.

Balance

Balance

This week’s New Moon in Libra is all about balance and harmony.  That’s because it sits conjunct Jupiter (in Libra) and close enough to Mercury (in Scorpio) to stir up some sensual, expansive connections in our most intimate relationships. Using this astrological medicine this week, has the potential to create harmony, love, and balance in relationships and partnerships.  Expect the unexpected and be ready to pivot in order to create expansion into love, joy, and financial abundance.  

This week you have an opportunity to change your perspective on, well, everything. But that’s going to take awareness to notice it, and then courage to act on it.  In fact, it would be a great idea to actually do things exactly the opposite of how you’ve been doing them this week, just to see how it feels.  When you do that, it could attune your life even deeper with the flow of the Universe.

Good place to start - intimate relationships.

Why?  Because intimate relationships represent what you are experiencing in this moment, within your own self. The energy mirrors your heart.  In order to find balance – you need to notice and take accountability for what you are witnessing. Intimate relationships could be sexual relationships, family relationships, work relationships, or those people that are in your field every single day.

Here’s another thing I’ve been contemplating when it comes to the word balance.  When we take a look at the current state of the world as it is right now, we may be extremely concerned about where we’re headed, what we’re doing, and how everything looks so out of balance and in such a chaotic mess. 

But what if, just what if, what we were witnessing right now, was actually happening to bring us back into balance?  That all of this perceived chaos and negativity was really for the betterment of our entire existence?  What if all these things that are happening, must happen right now, in order to completely eradicate the way things have been, because the way they have been just does not fit the mold of how existence will operate? 

And what if we were just sitting in the middle of that pendulum swing, where we are experiencing both dark and light at the same time?  Which by the way, we must do in order to actually see the disparity and make a decision of what we want to experience, based on a completely new outlook on life?

Mouthful isn’t it?

I mean, we have the opportunity to create and sustain “unconventional” relationships that will actually contribute to a higher resonance and vibration, because they are based out of joy and love, and not illusion or obligations.  We have the opportunity to forgive and let go of all hurt, anger, shame, and grief so we can choose to move forward in strength, courage and love. 

Personally I believe that present moment is showing us the dark side so we begin to ask some tough question about our values, morals, and beliefs.  I think we’re being asked again, to stand up for what we believe in from our hearts; not from a stance of anger or separateness but instead from a place of oneness, grace and peace within ourselves. 

So … yeah, balance.  It’s not just about balancing on your mat although, that is a great way to begin this process.  It’s about balancing your thoughts, words and deeds to be more attuned with this new vibration that Father Sky, Mother Earth, and all our ancestors are supporting us in creating.   

 

 

Focus

Focus

I know it’s hard to focus right now. I know … I get it.  Especially for those of you directly or indirectly dealing with loss.  I know it’s hard – I’m having a hard time myself.    There’s so much isn’t there.  But you must.  You must breathe, you must stop moving and rest, and then get back up again and do your thing.  You must pray, you must love, you must know your super-human powers and use them. 

Desire

Desire

Meaning, if desire if just an energy … why not apply it to what’s happening now?  In this breath, in this eye gaze, in this embrace, in this moment. Because when you do that, you elevate the energy of the moment that is happening, creating a higher vibratory frequency to that moment.  Which then, will most likely create more of what you desire, simply because your vibe is higher. 

Refinement

Refinement

There is no end goal in the refining process. It's like smoothing out a stone and turning it 'into' a finely polished crystal.  The reality is that 'stone' was always perfect; it always caught the light from a Divine place.  And, every time it gets polished or is held in a different way, it catches the light in a unique, profound way. 

New Reality

New Reality

The Solar Eclipse opened up a portal that we all had (and still have) an opportunity to walk through.  A portal that supports us in thinking differently, dissolving our burdens, and observing ourselves as we are, in the Now.  

The present astrological events of this New Moon Virgo pretty much at the Autumn Equinox, is bringing it all home.  When we entered this New Moon energy we came in as one thing and are now BEing released as quite another.

Discipline

Discipline

This blog from my book Oms From the Heart

And in that one breath that we take, very consciously, we are offered a nano-second to discipline our thoughts so they are more in alignment with who we are and what we desire.  We can notice before we react; before we fall into a pattern; before we go down the “wrong” path. 

Sensitive

Sensitive

Our intuition is being replaced by Google.  Face-to-face, heart-to-heart connection, replaced by texting that can be edited many times before hitting send.  Prayer limited to an app that has to be connected to Wi-Fi in order for it to work.

For the Love of Goddess …
what the hell are you going to do when the Wi-Fi goes down?

Pause

Pause

Life moves fast doesn’t it?  I guess in this neck of the woods it does anyway.  Seems like we are all moving faster, responding quicker, filling our calendar, checking our phones for answers, seeing how other people are responding, and blaming the way of the world on something outside ourselves seemingly out of our control.  

New Beginnings

New Beginnings

I’m not sure about you, but I have already felt a shift with this new energy from the Eclipse.  But I’m that way; I feel it all.  It’s time for new beginnings and new programming.  Which means, there may be a lot of letting go, struggling, or potentially questioning where your life is going.  

Or, on the other hand, if you’ve known that a new beginning is on the horizon, you now get to prepare.  Let me be clear about what I mean when I say a “new beginning.”  It can be a shift in location, in job, or in relationship. It can be a hard right turn, or a simple five-degree course correct. It could be as simple as beginning a new thought process or pattern that works better for your soul.

Abundance

Abundance

When you hear the word abundance, most people think of financial wealth and prosperity.  That’s typical as our world, as we know it to be, values almost everything with a “price point”. 

Which makes sense … kind of.

But because our life is so multi-dimensional, wouldn’t we desire to experience abundance in other areas as well?  Because if we only focus on money, we lose out – on a lot. I mean, if you’re abundant in money but your relationships lack, you are not experiencing abundance now are you?  You are losing in love and connection, what does money matter in that situation anyway? 

And what about experiencing an abundance of time?  What does that look like?  With two teenager daughters I keep thinking I have an abundance of time so there’s a lot of breathing happening in order to make that so.  So maybe I have an abundance of breath. 

Either way … I’m abundant.

If we are product of our thoughts, which I like to believe that we are, then we always have more than enough.  And if you say you’re tired, or overwhelmed, or busy, then you will be. But if you say instead, “I’m abundant in my life right now!” – that one phrase can shift everything.  And I mean it.

The over arching thought in global consciousness has been one of lack.  We’re told by the media that we need something – anything!  But the truth is, we have everything we need in present moment.  We may desire more, we may visualize more in our lives, but in our present moment, we have every single thing we need to create the life we love and nourish the soul’s callings.

When we forget that, we grasp, we grip, we yearn for more.  We wish things were different.  We pray for something to “come to us” when all this does is create more lack within our lives. 

When we re-member that our lives are abundant, we can give in infinite generosity.  We can love without fear.  We can create a life we cannot even really dream up, because we know that there is something more than the mind can conceive. 

In the field of abundance, we recognize that we do not know it all. We do not control anything.  We give it up to spirit.  And that, living in abundance, is what creates miracles.    

Breakthrough

Breakthrough

Because when something breaks apart, or down it’s really breaking through to something else.  Something you didn’t notice before.  Something you couldn’t have noticed without whatever transpired … no matter how uncomfortable it was.  And even in that breakthrough, you may experience MORE breakthroughs. Like how you reacted once you became the observer and noticed the real you … 

I Am

I Am

Read this original musing in my book Oms from the Mat

We create that which we desire and believe we deserve for ourselves in this lifetime. We are creative beings and the two most powerful words in the English language are “I am.” Saying “I am” is like summoning all the “powers who be” to us. They are just waiting to hear what it is we think we are so they can deliver.

Patience

Patience

Read this original musing in my book Oms from the Heart

We sit and we wait;  we wait for the breath of the Divine to guide us into our truth, and our purpose and we have patience as we observe our life and all the amazingness that happens as we move through each connection, each struggle, each embrace and each disappointment.  We have patience and when it’s right and it’s time .. we know.  That’s all … we just know.

FREEDOM

FREEDOM

I stare at the Moon often; actually have quite a love affair with Her these days.  And just this past weekend, I watched Her rise over Yosemite’s majestic landscape. I witnessed the ground vibrating beneath my feet while I was there.  Felt the cleansing water at Mirror Lake go right through to my soul.  In one day I was blessed to have hundreds of butterflies, several dragonflies, multiple Bluejays, and a huge brown bear cross my path.  I have watched the Sun set and Moon rise at the same time multiple times in my life.   In all these instances I was free.  Free in my mind, my heart, and my soul.
