THIS
We wall want to feel safe, be loved for who we are and be happy in our sense of belonging. We are all brothers and sisters and finding your Soul Family changes everything. “We’re all just walking each other home,” says Ram Dass.
.
Today connect with the Human Mandala around you and make a Nature Mandala too! Making a Nature Mandala is an important meditation technique harnessing the power of mandalas to explore consciousness. These mandalas can be interpreted for their spiritual guidance for your life’s journey.

How to Make Nature Mandala 10 Step Process
.
1. Find a location you love. Working on a mandala takes time and can be a very quiet and reflective activity like near a beach where you can hear the ocean.
.
2. Scout the spot. Look for a place where its not in direct line of traffic.
.
3. Gather the materials. Go on a bit of a nature walk and look for anything to add to your pattern. If it’s laying on the ground, it’s usually OK to pick up. Try not to pick too many things (like leaves or grasses) to add – instead try to find things that have already fallen.
.
4. Create the canvas: Create 4 sections North, South, East, West.
.
5. Make the Mandala: Start in the center or anywhere, there is no wrong.
.
6. Make it personal. Put something that symbolizes yourself somewhere in the Mandala
.
7. Sit with your Mandala and ask a question of Spirit. Listen for the answer.
.
8. Take a photo of your Mandala
.
9. 24 hours later go back and be with your Mandala again. See what’s changed. Take a photo of your 24 Hour Mandala so your Guide can interpret the results.
.
10. Learn the lesson of impermanence by destroying it. Give it back to nature.

Ho’ oponopono Healing Forgiveness

Ho’ oponopono. We all benefit from help. Last night I had another healing session with a Light Worker to help me continue my healing journey. You see, I am trying to make peace in my heart once and for all with those that have hurt or betrayed me. I am tired of carrying the weight around and I dearly want to put it down and be FREE. One of the fundamental ways I love myself into healing is practicing #forgiveness. This meditation of Ho’oponopono changed my life. I hope it will yours too. Ask my anything about the practice. You see, I want us all to feel free!
.
“When you hold resentment toward another, you are bound to that person or condition by an emotional link that is stronger than steel. Forgiveness is the only way to dissolve that link and get free, Ho’oponopono is the Key Element and Love is the Ho’oponopono means to “make right” and is the Hawaiian code for forgiveness.
.
Ho’oponopono restores your light or energy body and your e-motion, or energy in motion. Through your light body you are connected with all of life. Through your e-motion you are always affecting everyone around you by your thoughts, words, feelings and actions. Ho’oponopo #Meditation is an ancient Hawaiian tradition for healing. By reciting the prayer one releases any negativity that keeps you from true happiness. Find more about Zero Limits by Joe Vitale.
.
❤️ Ho’ oponopono Meditation: Let’s try it together please put your left hand on your heart and ask Source to infuse all with divine light. Say aloud or silently these statements.
I love you
I am sorry
Please forgive me
Thank you
.
Ho’oponopono restores your light or energy body and your e-motion, or energy in motion. Through your light body you are connected with all of life. Through your e-motion you are always affecting everyone around you by your thoughts, words, feelings and actions.
.
Through the power of grace you can know the blessing of absolute and unconditional self love and acceptance. In truth when you love yourself completely you love everything and everyone through all dimensions of time and space. This simple act of transmutation, bringing your darkness into the light, provides wonderful nourishment for your soul. The Ho’oponopono Ritual empowers you to shine with brilliance and renewed Self love.
.
Ho’oponopono in essence means to make things right with your ancestors, or to make right with the people with whom you are connected, and have relationships, and most especially yourself
.
Oh Divine Mother, Divine Father, archangels and angels, my guides, ancestors, teachers, friends, and all those who love me hear me now.
I come before you with my heart opened in humble gratitude for my soul’s journey.
.
I acknowledge my unfolding and nourish the flames of my heart, mind, and soul with the beauty I create in the world. Bless my footsteps as I walk upon my path so that I may always remember the road that leads to the truth of the flame within me.
And so it is

Do Something Now

Do Something By Silvia Mordini

“People of accomplishment rarely 

sat back and let things happen to them.  

They went out and happened to things.”

~ Leonardo da Vinci

The question is should you do a yoga teacher training? Is now the right time? Are you ready? Just by asking the question means you are ready. Don’t let the worry of doing it or not doing it steal all your energy. Otherwise while you’re waiting life will just pass on by and another year will be passed. Face your stories and choose to create a new story RIGHT NOW.

“Action is about living fully. Inaction is the way that we deny life. You can have many great ideas in your head, but what makes the difference is the action. Without action upon an idea, there will be no manifestation, no results, and no reward.” 

That pretty much sums up our @alchemyofyoga philosophy!

 

DO SOMETHING NOW

If you wait until you are “ready” and things are “perfect” you will get stuck in the inertia of inaction. Get started in taking small steps towards your intentions within the next 24 hours.  Do not let self-doubt cripple you into statis. And know that once you’ve begun then keep acting on your goals a little at a time. The smallest efforts keep the momentum going and create powerful change. As they say in South America, “little by little one travels far.”

 

DON’T GIVE UP

Part of our humanness is our ability to be really hard on ourselves especially when things don’t go the way we had envisioned. When you meet yourself on the path you’ll quickly learn that acting on things doesn’t always yield the results you expected. That is no reason to stop. Instead amp up your efforts to keep doing something. Like the Lotus Blossom which rises up from the mud of the swamp through murky waters, moving free into the air and up towards the sun pristine and white don’t stop sticking to your vision. As Florence Scovel Shinn writes, “Every great work, every big accomplishment, has been brought into manifestation through holding to the vision, and often just before the big achievement, comes apparent failure and discouragement.”  Therefore let us be as firm and resolute as the Lotus Blossom, in manifesting the most joy-filled, peaceful and healthful life we can envision.

 

BE GRATEFUL

I also learned from my parents to practice gratitude with enthusiasm every day. Through the doing of life and manifesting joy it is important to maintain your motivation by sharing your gratitude for your attempts as well as your achievements. A positive attitude may get you started in doing something but what keeps it sustainable is appreciation for those that play into your success.

 

My yoga practice reminds me of all three of these aspects of living an inspired life. I get on my mat each day and “do something”, I do not give up my practice when life is inconvenient, and I certainly give thanks to all who made it possible for me to move, breath and celebrate my joy at being alive in this moment! And in turn this stokes my rebel spirit to go out and happen to things.

If you feel the call to take a deep soul dive dedicated to yourSELF then DO SOMETHING. Sign up today.

See you on the mat in #Bali or #CostaRica 2019!

Love yourself, love your day, love your life! Silvia

3 REASONS WHY YOGA TEACHER TRAINING CHANGES YOUR LIFE

3 REASONS WHY YOGA TEACHER TRAINING CHANGES YOUR LIFE
.
Something magical and mystical happens when a group of high-intentioned individuals make the decision to gather together for 200 hours with the purpose of uplifting their lives & expanding their consciousness into radical authenticity. The result is something beyond words. It is, as best as I can explain it, the Alchemy of Yoga at its best. Chapter 2 verse 1 of the Yoga Sutras sets forth how the Alchemy of Yoga actually works. “Tapas svadhyaya ishvara pranidhana kriya yoga.” Translated to mean that yoga helps us transform ourselves on three levels:
1. Physical Alchemy
2. Mental Alchemy
3. Spiritual Alchemy
.
You see when you get together in a Teacher Training #Tribe we are all like the Alchemist in his/her laboratory mixing ingredients. For us as yogis our laboratory is our mat and the ingredients are our bodies, our poses, our breath, our thoughts and the mixing it all together creates a different result every time. A Teacher Training Program changes your life. You wake up to the power you have to go into the laboratory of your life experience and mix the potions you want to create your best life going forward!
.
Here are 3 Reasons Why Yoga Teacher Trainings Change Your Life (and it’s Alchemy):
.
1. TRANSFORMATION HAPPENS FASTER…Something extraordinary happens while in a yoga teacher training program that breaks the bonds of ordinary awareness and expands the consciousness of each individual to a level that would otherwise would have taken years of ordinary living to attain. This acceleration of evolution is mystical, meaning that the explanation of the change is beyond logic and reason. The term from quantum physics,“quantum leap”, comes to mind. A quantum leap means “a phenomena where an electron orbiting the nucleus of an atom changes its position without having traversed the space between its old and new orbit and without taking any time to do so. As scientifically verifiable as this phenomena is, it is also on the order of a miracle, for science has no explanation how this effect happens.” This experience of waking up to the power of your own transformation fires you up to change the world. As Sri Swami Satchidananda says, “Yoga believes in transforming the individual before transforming the world. Whatever change we want to happen outside should happen within. If you walk in peace and express that peace in your very life, others will see you and learn something.” In a teacher training tribe you are learning at a faster rate exponentially. You feed off of one another’s passion and it makes everyone burn brighter. You are constantly being built up to reach higher into your best potentiality.
.
2. SELF-REFLECTION LEADS TO SELF-EXPRESSION…Self-Study known as svadhaya is really the heart of yoga. A 200‐hour program offers you a unique opportunity to make a deep commitment to learning more about yourself. The entire training community provides you honest, loving support from day one with complete inclusivity. Training programs are a safe haven: a nurturing sanctuary to engage in open‐minded self‐exploration. Teacher trainings are devoted to offering you an atmosphere in which freedom of self-expression, creativity, and passion for life are totally encouraged! In the 8‐limbed path of Yoga in order to effectively teach using your most authentic voice you can only teach what you know about yourself. Being a dedicated student of yoga for your own self study will help you learn better ways to take care of yourself. And once you know how to self-comfort you are able to express who you are into the world in a dynamic yet unpretentious way.
.
3. BREAK OLD HABITS...By taking a break from your daily life, unplugging from the pulls and pushes of technology and engaging in healthy activity (tapas) and conversation (self-study) while in the container of a teacher training program you are in an excellent environment to release unwanted habits. Some of these habits include detoxing the physical body through a lot of moving and breathing. You’ll do a lot of yoga poses! The letting go of mental bonds and ego provides an emotional transformation of surrender. When we surrender and feel safe then healing begins. Once relaxed we can see our old emotional paradigms emerge and the unhealthy mental habits which have formed as samskaras. From there the Spiritual Alchemy resets the internal dialogue to one of trusting the forward flow of grace. Also there is something very powerful about surrounding yourself with people who don’t know the encyclopedia of your past. They see you as you really are and your potential for greatness. This helps to reinforce your willingness to change for the better. Even upon finishing a teacher training program life long friendships are formed with like minded people who will support your growth and your new lifestyle choices. They will continue to support your spiritual maturity to show up fully and let go completely.

ABOUT SILVIA MORDINI, Writer, Happiness Coach, Love Alchemist
.
My area of expertise is as a connector. I am an enthusiastic friend gatherer who loves to discuss breathing, yoga psychology, poetry, music, movement, books, travel and philosophy. And I am a long-time love anthropologist and student of life. I am open to all suggestions and enjoy meeting interesting people, spiritual seekers, soul surfers and anyone who wants to hang out. I am especially interested in people who make me laugh and those who laugh at my quirky sense of humor.
.
My parents, Mama and Papa, inspired my love of movement and travel, saying that I learned to ski before I learned to walk. I stayed active with tennis, swim team, cycling, hiking, running, pom poms, and dance squad. But even with all that activity, travel has been my greatest influence and my first love. My Father, Enrico, was a pure adventurer and my Mother’s parents were serious spiritual seekers and healers. I grew up traveling all over the world with my brother and parents. That I love to show others the beauty of the world through Yoga Workshops and destination Yoga Retreats and @alchemyofyoga #teachertrainings shouldn’t be a surprise, since I was born in Ecuador and my Father is from Northern Italy, and English is my third language. So really my first yoga was travel. I learned how to connect to people and find the union between us. What we all have in common is the ability to laugh, to look for the good in any situation, and to choose love.
.
With over 11,000 hours of yoga teaching experience I make yoga approachable and inspiring for everyone. My focus is on bringing more fun to yoga with the hope that how we practice our yoga becomes how we live our life. As an Experienced Yoga Teacher (E-RYT) and a lifelong athlete, singer, dancer, poet and adventurer, my style of yoga is Bhakti infused Alignment based Vinyasa flow. I’ve been practicing yoga over the last 15 years after being run over by a car as a pedestrian and using it to recover physically and emotionally. I have owned a successful and well-loved yoga studio for 10 years.
