I am Missing My Hair

I woke up today missing my hair.

Last month in I felt the need to “lighten up” and get rid of something old to make way for something new.
I let go of 10 inches of hair (shown here)

I felt sentimental for the old stuff today, likely because yesterday I had the biggest release ever.
The Healing session with Sister LindseyWise was a rebirthing of my soul.
::
Releasing stuck pain from further back than I’ve gone. Opening new heart space. Going bigger into uncharted territory.

Life as a Roller Coaster

“Life can be like a roller coaster… And just when you think you’ve had enough, and your ready to get off the ride and take the calm, easy merry-go round… You change your mind, throw you hands in the air and ride the roller coaster all over again. That’s exhilaration…that’s living a bit on the edge…that’s being ALIVE.”  #staceycharter

Standing in the water and receiving healing at water purification ceremony yesterday in #Bali I was blessed with the clear download of where to move. The answer was so obvious. It was always there. All I had to do was throw my hands up in the Air and ride the roller coaster again. 

Now the challenge is to listen to the advice of spirit and move thru the fear of resistance.

Durga Rebel Spirit

Tomorrow I’m teaching Durga Inspired Rebel Spirit Workshop. Hike in the red rocks + yoga. Perfect at Sedona Yoga Festival! Yoga works to inspire a REBEL SPIRIT in all of us. Have you ever wondered how yoga helps us move beyond resistance to fear and Let Go of what’s holding us back? In this workshop learn how your Rebel Spirit comes from Durga often called the Mother of the universe who protects mankind from misery by destroying selfishness, jealousy, prejudice, hatred, and anger. 

Durga, the goddess of power (shakti) and strength over negativity is also the mother of bounty and wealth, and of beauty and knowledge, for her daughters are Lakshmi and Saraswati (goddesses of wealth and knowledge, respectively).

We will invoke the badass energy of Durga, Invincibility, to stand up for our life! We will inhabit the poses with fierce kindness and peaceful determination and strut away inspired to be ourselves. Join me for some playful, radical fun flow to stoke your rebel spirit!

At the end there will be time to be Overly Meditated before savasana and live a LIFE Inspired the rest of the day!

What Turns You On?

In myth, Lakshmi, goddess of #abundance was born from the ocean of milk that the gods had churned for 1000 years. That “milk” is the sweetness of this world. From that ocean of being, all Fortune arises–hence Lakshmi arises.
 
Because people #desire and take pleasure in #fortune, she is also the Goddess of desire and pleasure, hence the #Tantrik goddess who is parallel to Lakshmi is called Kamakhya (a name whose root we know from Kama Sutra, a manual on the pursuit of desires).
 
We often find her depicted with four arms, which are symbolic of her fertility and power generally and specifically they are representative of the four aims of life: pleasure (kama), social responsibility (dharma), vocation (artha), and ultimate liberation (moksha). She holds #lotuses, symbols of the world’s #fertility.
 
Join me to learn and more importantly feel more of what turns you on. Connect back with the heart of your desires no matter what challenges have brought you here today.
What are you giving birth to this year? A new book, home, job?

Invoking Lakshmi: Abundance + Prosperity

Invoking Lakshmi: Abundance + Prosperity By: Silvia Mordini

Your practice may include invoking Lakshmi, the goddess of Abundance and Prosperity through mantra, meditation, and setting intention. It is important to recognize that we are not asking for prevention of hardship. Instead, we are asking that we believe we have enough to persevere.

Mantra:

“Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers, 
but to be fearless in facing them. 
Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, 
but for the heart to conquer it. 
Let me not crave in anxious fear to be saved, 
but for the patience to win my freedom.”
– Shantideva

Self-Study + Journaling:

  • What are you ready to receive more of?
  • How will you manage all of this new abundance?
  • How will your life be different?

Lakshmi and Abundance

And I want us all to embrace a mindset of abundance, spiritually and financially. One way we can do that is educated ourselves on the powers of Lakshmi also spelled Laxmi. The word “Lak” means 100,000 in its literal sense. It represents infinity because Lakshmi is the Mother of all giving and receiving. She is the goddess of Fortune.

Other cool things to know about Lakshmi:
1. She was married to the Sun god to whom Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar) are practiced to honor.
2. She is said to protect us from sadness.
3. Another of her names is Sri which means beautiful
4. Yet another of her names is Kamakhya (root word from Kama Sutra). She represents pleasure too.
5. She has 4 arms (sometimes just 2) and these represent the four aims of Life: pleasure (kama), social responsibility (dharma), vocation (artha) and ultimate liberation (moksha).

Invoking Lakshmi elevates our spirits and helps us to expand instead of contract. Try it and see. Love yourself, love your day, love your life! Silvia

How to Boost Your Confidence in Abundance

Wayne was shy, overweight, and popping dozens of pills every day to deal with chronic back pain. He was quickly losing touch with himself. In December of 2011, he decided he was sick of it all and signed up for a Yoga Retreat almost a year away. He had never taken a single yoga class at this point.

He felt this was the answer to building confidence in himself and the possibility that he could change his life. He went to a yoga class. It was hot. He sweat. A lot. He could only do a few of the poses. But he enjoyed the challenge, and so he returned the next day. He stayed near the back so as not to be recognized. And he kept showing up.

As his confidence grew so did his belief in abundance. He was proof that you get more than one chance to do your life.

When Wayne arrived on my Alchemy Tours Yoga Retreat in Hawaii October 2012, and had left the old version of himself behind. He had practiced six days a week for nearly a year and lost over 35 lbs! He is the most energetic, friendly, upbeat outgoing person you will meet. And he doesn’t take one pill.

It is easy to get overwhelmed and think we are never going to get better. We can easily become paralyzed with seeing the world as unforgiving or lacking enough goodness for all of us.

IMG_1291A tantric view is one of seeing the good and believing that there is more than enough to go around. This means living from a paradigm of abundance.

The truth is the world is really a mirror of what we think of it. If you believe in abundance, then you are surrounded by prosperity and abundance.

It’s happened to all of us…. scarcity mentality, where we feel like we don’t have “enough.” Enough of what? Well, first of all, time. Then everything else.
Yoga can heal our relationship to abundance.

Your practice may include invoking Lakshmi, the goddess of Abundance and Prosperity through mantra, meditation, and setting intention. It is important to recognize that we are not asking for prevention of hardship. Instead, we are asking that we believe we have enough to persevere.

” Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers,
but to be fearless in facing them.
Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain,
but for the heart to conquer it.
Let me not crave in anxious fear to be saved,
but for the patience to win my freedom.”
Shantideva

And remember don’t beat yourself up if you fall back into the old habit of catastrophizing. Keep at it! As Wayne says, the worst thing that happened to him was that he had to buy an entirely new wardrobe! Love yourself, love your day, love your life! Silvia
