Continuing The Release...


Continuing The Release...

Today, I took going with the flow even deeper as I purged more and more negative energies from my psyche. I have been practicing the grounding exercises in "Basic Psychic Develop" by John Friedlander and Gloria Hemsher to release anymore negativity from my aura. In the exercises I imagine a green cord anchoring my root chakra down to the earth's core. I imagine vital earth energy going through my feet and legs and circulating into my solar plexus and throughout my entire aura. Than any unwanted energies are sent down the cord where they can be assimilated into the earth. I have been doing that all day, whenever I can think about it, to ground myself. Meditation, grounding and staying in the flow of The Universe have been my aim today.

Finding Strength In Challenges


Finding Strength In Challenges

I'm sensing some rocky times ahead! Now is the time to give myself the love and nurtnuring I need. To accomplish tasks and move with the currents of life with a sense fluidity even though there may be rocks in the river to create growth and change.



Today's tarot reading from Sandra Anne Taylor's "Energy Oracle" should probably fill me with at least a bit of trepidation, buy oddly it doesn't. I am tapping into the assistance of my angels and guides and of an ever-growing courageousness that I feel building up inside of my soul. It feels very new even though I know it's always been there , waiting within me like kundalini. The first card I drew "Door To Romance" probably has to do with the amazing V-Day I had yesterday and all the warm beautiful romance that promises on the horizon. " Hostilities" I feel has to do with a current problem that the jazz club that I'm the VP of on campus has. There are definitely hostilities there from the administration that our club has to deal with. And finally there is the "Financial Constraints" card which is telling me to watch my spending. I'm working to create abundance in my life though, and I am confident that I will be seeing that card less and less. The general consensus is that I'm taking this all in stride and not panicking and giving way anxiety. I call that a win in my book!


Riding On The Wave


Riding On The Wave


Valentine's day! Today I was living in the flow of life. Synchronicity is clicking into place like the mechanisms of a safe lock that I have the combination to. I can't explain it but really feel like I'm riding on the waves of life no matter how big they may be, and I'm surfing them with ease.

Stirring Realizations


Stirring Realizations

My life seems to be following an unscripted theme this week. That is of letting go and going on. Facing the parts of myself that are harder to look at ( insecurities, fears, judgments, frustrations) and learning that they too are a part of me. Learning to love them instead of resent them,, or rather resent myself, is not a particularly comfortable but necessary part of the path I'm on. It can't always be chocolate and roses, and I don't even want it to be. But I realized something as I wrote my affirmation into Briana and Peter Borten's "Rituals For Transformation" journal today, that I can choose for it to be. I can either decide to open eyes to the beauty that is in the world or focus on what's "ugly". And maybe what's "ugly" is what's true. My affirmation for today is "I am where I am now, and all that is, is perfect." It is that way because I wish it to be so. Isn't that the real definition of magic?

Getting back to it!


Getting back to it!

I'm getting back into the groove of a brand new yoga challenge. It feels different but in a good way. This is day 2 of. Brett Larkin's 21 day Detox Fusion yoga pledge. 21 days of yin, hatha and kundalini yoga styles fused together ❤ in one seamless practice are already beginning to work their magic as I cleanse deeply at a soul level. I can't wait to see where this inner journey takes me too. I'm firmly set on the road, taking one step 🚶 and putting one foot (sometimes shaky, sometimes firmly) in  front of the other. Namaste!

Starting A New Challenge


Starting A New Challenge

Today I worked my way through Brett Larkin's 21-day yoga challenge to detox my body for the New Year! It's only the first day in this and I can already see that it's going to be a unique healing experience for me. This weekend was all about restoration and letting go. As I have written in the last few blogs, I was waylaid by a really bad flu this past week that really put me out of commission. I had to rest, recoup and regroup. And now I'm back and ready to get my week started off on a bright note. First it's fast approaching Valentine's Day, which I am so blessed to share with someone special. But even before it was a romantic day for me, I always regarded V-Day as a time to show love to both yourself and others - as well as an occasion to spoil yourself just a little bit. A space where you can celebrate your inner romantic and pursue what makes you passionate about life even if it's not with another person -- when you can take bubble baths, bliss out with yin yoga and deeply loving meditations, make decadent smoothies or sweet treats, and nourish your heart and sacral chakras. I head into that week with a sense that I am going to take care of myself  and my well-being and show others how much I care as well. So let the loving begin this week!

90 Days And Still Going Strong!


90 Days And Still Going Strong!

Today's yoga practice marked the official 90-day point in my yoga journey. Ten more days, on February 20th will be my 100th day of non-stop communions with my self on the mat. How long will my yoga be there for me? Forever of course -- as long as I have this physical vehicle. And perhaps farther beyond that, into my next lifetime. And that is the synchronicity of the whole thing -- the poetry of movement that is this soul's path -- it's inertia towards healing that sometimes seems like a circular road. In that acknowledgement there is a deeper meaning to this state that we label existence. It makes "being" something more expansive.
