Releasement Ceremony to Let Go

Blessings on this Full Moon.

In lunar ceremony last night in the largest sister circle I’ve ever been a part of we were asked to partner with someone and share what we are releasing to the Full Moon. My sister and I dropped in to the depths of our souls in seconds. We shared profound desires to dissolve obstacles to our happiness. We gazed into one another’s eyes and took turns holding space so we would each be seen. Letting Go to release old patterns isn’t easy, but together with over a hundred women we supported one another to surrender to the fire that which no longer serves us. Aho. Namaste.

Some of my Let Go List I share here:

I let go of the need to know why things happen.

I let go of what I don’t want.

I let go of repressed emotions.

I let go of the need to know the outcome.

I let go of the need to be needed.

I let go of extreme self sacrifice.

I let go of holding back.

I let go of being angry.

I let go for my need for approval.

I let go of displacement.

I let go of numbing out.

I let go of the details.

I let go of fitting in.

I let go of over controlling.

I let go of my worry.

I let go of my fear.

I let go of my guilt.

I let go of blame.

I let go of my resistance.

I let go of frustration.

I let go of negative thoughts.

I let go of needing to be acknowledged.

I let go of insecurity.

I let go of the old dominant story.

I let go of not being good enough.

I let go of the pain.

HAIR STORY PART 2

HAIR STORY – HER STORY PART 2
By Silvia Mordini
More about my hair.
I love long hair and always will.
Last year at this time I cut 11 inches off.
I’ve been growing it out the second the hair dropped to the ground. But I had to do it. It was part of my shedding old pain and an old life.
.
I had done the work but was literally carrying around the storylines of how my life was supposed to be and I couldn’t get out from under the weight.
.
So I cut off my hair.
.
Can you see now how it’s growing? 😊
.
It’s not as long as I want it and I haven’t fully lived into my new life, but it’s progress none the less. And I’m really proud of that. 🙏
.
It’s not easier for me than someone else because I’m a #spiritual #teacher of #love #peace and #mindfulness. It’s still challenging! Recovery from near death, going blind, being in four hospitals and then heart break this last 3-4 years has been the hardest time of my life.
.
But it was necessary for my soul to grow and be now ready to meet my #soulmate ❤️ He’s almost here, I can feel it.
.
And in the meantime my hair will keep growing as long as a #mermaid😍“Darwin may have been quite correct in his theory that man descended from the apes of the forest, but surely woman rose from the frothy sea, as resplendent as Aphrodite on her scalloped chariot.”
#MargotDatz, A Survival Guide for Landlocked Mermaids
.
I love you!

EDGE

EDGE
It was more than fifteen years ago I first heard this term in #yoga “playing the edge.” It was then I learned from @EricSchiffmann the difference between the soft edge and the hard edge.
At the time, as a corporate Road Warrior addicted to the Adrenalin of working for start up companies, I only knew the hard edge or beyond. It was work hard and play hard and then work harder. Even once I slowed down by going to #pricewaterhousecoopers my weekly time sheets were still 76 hours.
.
I literally lived life Over the Edge.
Everything I did was over the top.
Even decorating home for the holidays.
.
The #yoga helped but what really changed things was #meditation. It brought me balance.
.
I love playing the edge but not going over it. ❤️

AWAKE

AWAKE

Life is full of beauty.
I am a lifelong moment gatherer and beauty finder. It’s my nature to see the world around me with the eyes of my heart. Each day I ride my scooter in #Bali looking to collect as many beautiful visions as possible.

To be honest 99% of the beauty I discover I choose not to capture in a photo. I keep these treasures in my heart to share in conversation rather than in media.
I like to think if we are all paying attention to the beauty around us, we will always have the most amazing conversations. We can share our stories. ❤️
.
All that is required is that you purposely notice everything and everyone around you. I promise you’ll never run out of beauty to celebrate. 🙏
.
Just today I saw #smiles #frog #humblerice #fruitstand #jackfruit#frangipani #flowers #coconut #palmtrees #ceremony #pool #peace #blue#happiness
.
This is me on my scooter just living life awake. 😍

.
I don’t want to miss a thing! ❤️

SAT KRIYA

TRUTH  SAT KRIYA

I had to start my 90 days in a row over again. My #sadhana has to be routine otherwise I won’t “catch up” later that day. It is why the power of #RITUAL is so important. It keeps us on track. I’ve set course to #beginagain. I start over on Sat Kriya and am attempting 90 days. Maybe you want to join me?
.
Yogi Bhajan says about 90 Days: Practice every day for 90 days straight. This will establish a new habit in your conscious and subconscious minds based on the effect of the kriya or mantra. It will change you in a very deep way.
.
What am I saying? Sat Nam. Truth is my identity. I practice so I don’t forget who I am and why I am here on this earth at this time.

How To Do It:
-Sitting on the heels in rock pose, interlace the fingers with the Jupiter (Index) fingers pointing straight up.
-Cross the thumbs: Females cross left over right and Males cross right over left.
-Raise the arms straight up and rotate the upper arms inward so that the arms are hugging the ears.
-In this position you will chant the mantra “Sat Naam” in the following way:
-Pull the navel point in* as you chant “Sat!” (Sounds like ‘Sutt.’)
-Release the lock as you chant “Naam.” (Almost like a sigh with the sound “Naam”)

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.

Passion Passport for Bali September 2018

Keep growing in Bali Sept 1-22, 2018!

RYT 200 hour @alchemyofyoga #yogateachertraining ✨

“Growing is the most important and essential endeavor that a human being can undertake. You can make money, you can be promoted or demoted in the world. Never, at any stage, is there certainty about what will happen to you in this life. However, there is one thing nobody can ever take away from you-the growth you attain through your own search for Self-knowledge. Furthermore, this growth and understanding become the foundation that sustains you through any and all worldly difficulties, and that allows you-whatever the form of your physical experience- to find in life a continuously unbroken flow of total well-being.”
— Swami Chetanananda

Washing Away the Pain

I ask myself, how did I get here? 

I’m still trying to wash away the pain.
I have been dedicated to healing my heart for 3 years, traveling around the world to cleanse my spirit. I call in my guides and guardians to help me. I sit still and meditate into the pain to transmute it.

Some days it works better than others. I’m still on the path doing the best I can breath by breath. I know things are changing because I’m coming back out into the world and allowing myself to be seen. I am born again happy.

Here are photos of the most recent water purification ceremony I did in Bali trying to flush it out once and for all. Bali Ma, Mother Bali has saved my life and I am so grateful.

I go back to Bali March 27 to feel how far I’ve come.
