How to Make Nature Mandala 10 Step Process

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.

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.

Year since I cut off 12 inches of hair suddenly while in Athens on my way to #kundalini #yogateachertraining with @glorialatham
I just felt this desire to lighten up by shedding something old. I’d already sold my home and given away most of my belongings. I’d purposely streamlined to living as digital nomad full-time. This meant all I had was what fit inside a suitcase. So the only thing left was my hair.
Old memories.
Old life.
#letgo to allow a
New life.
1 year later I have new hair.
And a new life is evolving as slowly as my hair grows.

3 Year Anniversary of Realizing my Life was a Lie

Today is a 3 year anniversary for me. It is the day that my life completely changed and I realized that everything I thought was true was a lie.

I have never spoken and written about this day publicly before, but in an effort to stop over concealing this “box of darkness” I unwantedly received I decided to share something now.

It was March 14th, the day before his birthday, and I received his email. “This isn’t the end, but rather a different chapter.”

I want this to be clear. It’s not about relationships ending, of course they do. That’s the cycle of life. Everything has an expiration date, even Us. Our lives are impermanent.

I have no resistance to this.

It is not the problem.

The challenge has been how the expiration was revealed. To receive an email from my beloved partner after so many years together, while he was in Paris ready to celebrate his birthday with the other woman, was impersonal and insensitive to say the least.

Shock and sadness ensued.
I had NO idea.
I woke up happy and laughed and made him laugh within the first 60 seconds of each day. I went to sleep well kissed and smiling.

We had a beautiful life.

The unraveling of what was concealed took a few months. The “Other Woman” who he cheated on me with for over a year is lovely from what I know. I even tried to friend her on Facebook “Before” I knew she was replacing me.

There I said it, I was cheated on (twice by him). I have carried that shame for 3 years. I couldn’t believe that what I thought was true was untrue. I felt not just betrayed but like an idiot for believing lies for so long.

I had given up everything to live together in Seattle. I sold my yoga studio, and left my friends and Family. I risked it all for love.

Maybe unconsciously I saw the signs, his changing his passwords on his computer, never leaving his phone lying around, even taking it into the bathroom with him at home. Unreturned calls at odd hours, strange credit card charges.

I had PURE TRUST and unconditional love.

The sadness was so much about the way this was handled without grace after so many years together. The urgency to send me an email so he could be with her more openly in Paris March 15, 2015 celebrating his birthday. And there was the betrayal I felt from trusting those of his friends and co-workers that knew about her and lied for him, while still coming to our home to eat, drink and be merry.

On this day I lost trust in humans.

I lost trust in myself for having let this happen.

And every single day since then, for 3 years, I have been working to rebuild trust. I’ve done the self-work, I’ve met with healers, shamans, cut the chords, healed the energy vibration, talked to therapist, journaled, meditated, cried, chanted, sold my house and went to live on the other side of the world to heal.

One of the hardest parts has been that I felt like I would be judged if you knew someone as smart and spiritual as I am could be so fooled. I thought you would lose respect for me. I was afraid. I didn’t know who or how to trust so I struggled with this by myself. It was the loneliest time of my life.

His betrayal broke me.

I had anxiety attacks. I couldn’t breathe. I got very sick.

My body started shutting down. I got so ill I ended up in the hospital. I felt grey.

I had to stop teaching.

And for months His long time concealing kept being revealed. I didn’t want to know more.

But life goes on, I don’t know how I got up but I did.
I give all credit to our Creator. My faith in Spirit saved me.
I was born again happy.

Within 11 months they gave birth to their first baby and were married. And in the end, love is love.

It chooses us.

All I hope for her is that she can trust him.

I continue my own journey of learning how to trust again. I am to this day still Healing.

I stay soft and keep expanding.

And I never ever stop believing in true love.


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.
Feeling lighter
Invoking Lakshmi: I am light filled with light.

You Can’t Go Back Only Forward

No one can go back, but everyone can go forward. And tomorrow, when the sun rises, all you have to say to yourselves is: I am going to think of this day as the first day of my life.
It isn’t what you did in the past that will affect the present. It’s what you do in the present that will redeem the past and thereby change the future.
Paolo Coelho
I press up into the now.
Today is the first day of my life.
I feel that rebirth more than ever after yesterday’s profound water purification ceremony.
I begin again.
This moment changes everything. 

Full Moon Releasement Ritual

Full Moon Releasement Ritual
The night of a full moon create a sacred and safe place were you can perform the Letting Go ceremony, preferably outdoors where you can receive the moonlight and feel protected by its energy.
For the ceremony you will need:
1. Sage smudge sticks or favorite incense.
2. A fire pit or a cooking pot or even the barbeque will work
3. Water to put out the fire afterward and as general safety precaution
4. Paper where you’ve written down what you want to surrender to the fire.
Recapitulation Preparation:
1. Call upon your guides to ask them to help you identify everything you need to release through this ceremony.
2. Meditate or pray before you begin.
3. Write down the names of those people you need to forgive for any reason.
4. Write down what you forgive yourself for. (eg Negative self-take or unhealthy habits)
5. Write down anger, fears or worries about any situations that are blocking you or keeping you from fully loving your life
When you finish, thank your guides for all their help. Then cut every name and every issue making separate slips of paper. You can do this the same day of a full moon or the day before. You will begin the process of releasing from the moment you start writing your list and setting the intention that you want to release.
Call upon your guides (eg your angels, Ganesha) for protection and guidance to help you remove any obstacles that could be blocking you in your path, ask for help from any other beings of light that could help you in the process of releasement.
1. Burn some Sage. Smudge yourself and the sacred space where you are going to perform the ceremony.
2. Say your intentions or prayer in letting go of negative emotions, addictions, or attitudes from your life.
3. Visualize yourself completely covered with a beautiful white light. Breathe the energy of the full moon.
4. When you feel ready start reading -out loud- one by one the words that you have written in each slip of paper. After you have read the first slip, set it on fire with a lighter and place it your fire pit, toss one by one after you read it. You can even say aloud “I surrender to the fire….or it’s gone.”
Look how the pieces of paper are burning, becoming ashes while the smoke goes into the sky. The same is happening to every thing you wrote on those slips they are vanishing from your life and your guides and the other beings of light are taking them to the light for its transmutation and transformation in pure positive energy: love, forgiveness, compassion, healing, trust and faith.
Say thank you to all the beings of light that were with you tonight assisting you in this ceremony. Put out the fire with water if necessary.
Rest easy. You are again born into this new moment to begin again.
