These Heartbeats are Your People

“Be around the light bringers, the magic makers, the world shifters, the game shakers. They challenge you, break you open, uplift and expand you. They don’t let you play small with your life. These heartbeats are your people. These people are your tribe.” –Unknown

Find your Tribe. It makes ALL the difference.

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.”

Butterfly Medicine Finding Joy

I was asked on the radio program Santa Cruz Socialites about my favorite animal. For me it is always the #butterfly and has been since I as a little girl. I have had countless experiences where they serve me reminders.

Butterfly Symbolism: This animal totem is primarily associated with symbolism of change and transformation.
-Powerful transformation, metamorphosis in your life, personality
-Moving through different life cycles
-Renewal, rebirth
-Lightness of being, playfulness
-Elevation from earthly matters, tuning into emotional or spiritual
-The world of the soul, the psyche

A secondary meaning of the butterfly is about finding joy in life and lightness of being

*******
What I remember about a particular life changing moment was in #Bali. I was working ever more deeply with a local #Shaman to help remove resistant layers to revealing my truest heart. We were at a 8 hour ceremony that started by driving to the holy mountain. Upon arriving we were welcomed at the ashram like atmosphere with tea and meditation in the yoga shala. After receiving instructions and changing out of our clothes, putting on our sarongs and nothing else we prepared to depart. There are no photos except for 1 from the beginning of the hike as we had to leave behind our technology.

We made our way that day to the river to drink from 7 waterfalls in the the river and in the pools found in the Balinese rice fields. Each step was a beautiful ritual to help release our obstacles to joy. It was a purification ceremony unlike any I’ve ever participated in before. To this day it was the hardest ritual I’ve ever done.

I could feel the old layers falling away that I had hidden even from themselves.

I remember at one waterfall holding a straw basket above my head filled with flowers to throw into the river as gratitude, “what pain did I have that I wanted to have washed away.” I replied to myself that I had none. I’ve done the work for years and years.

Then as I was standing there, the first one to go as we go by age and I was the eldest in the group of 7 of us, it finally came to me. I did have pain. I tapped into the pain from losing my Father, Papa, at the age of 25 years old. I had intellectualized the pain, I had addressed much of it, but not all of it.

So it was still there, as unfinished business waiting to be released so I could be transformed fully.

Without this purification ceremony I don’t think I would have completed my metamorphosis into the next stage of my life. To be honest I had held back some of this pain for 10 years because I didn’t want to be done with it. I someone thought completing this life cycle would make me forget my Father.

And in fact it was only going through his transformation that I can now more fully remember more about Papa.

This was a #rebirth for me that day in the rivers and rice fields.

I promised myself, God, the healer that with this life I would truly make the most of it. I would love myself, love my day, and love my life!

The Full Moon Came to Me

The moon came to me last night

With a sweet question.

She said, “The sun has been my faithful lover

For millions of years.

Whenever I offer my body to him

Brilliant light pours from his heart.

Thousands then notice my happiness

And delight in pointing

Toward my beauty.

Hafiz,

Is it true that our destiny

Is to turn into Light

Itself?” And I replied,

Dear moon,

Now that your love is maturing,

We need to sit together

Close like this more often

So I might instruct you

How to become

Who you

Are!

#hafiz #fullmoon #sedonayogafestival2017

I Enjoy Wild Things

“I enjoy the wild things, 
Give me sunsets in different cities and road trips on dirt tracks not sighted on maps. Give me happiness in a smile. 
There so much life in living while you’re alive & I’d give absolutely anything to have it all with you.”
-Nikki Rowe

I Dreamed of Florence Last Night

I dreamed of #Florence last night.
It makes sense to me because anytime I’m asked to remember when I felt most relaxed, I am here. 💕
I bow to the ability of my body to remember.
I bow to living #underthetuscan sun.
.
I am so grateful for this place where I’m closest to my Father energy. I feel so at ease, I can let go of anything heavy I’ve been carrying. I need that.
.
We all do.
And I’m looking forward to returning this June 🙏

Fall Back into Nothing

“From her very flesh and blood and from the constant cycles of filling and emptying the red vase in her belly, a woman understands physically, emotionally, and spiritually that zeniths fade and expire, and what is left is reborn in unexpected ways and by inspired means, only to fall back to nothing, and yet be reconceived again in full glory.”

Yes I’m Moon Stained

Yes, I’m moon stained. #SedonaYogaFestival2017

“And then there are the cravings.. Oh, la! A woman may crave to be near water, or be belly down, her face in the earth, smelling the wild smell. She might have to drive into the wind. She may have to plant something, pull things out of the ground or put them into the ground. She may have to knead and bake, rapt in dough up to her elbows.
She may have to trek into the hills, leaping from rock to rock trying out her voice against the mountain. She may need hours of starry nights where the stars are like face powder spilt on a black marble floor. She may feel she will die if she doesn’t dance naked in a thunderstorm, sit in perfect silence, return home ink-stained, paint-stained, tear-stained, moon-stained.”
