Embodying Shakti: aha Exchange with Rachel Heart

. . . there is Goddess Lakshmi who is just the essence of shree, of sweetness, of playfulness, and love in her essence. Oftentimes Lakshmi is honored as that energy of abundance, but I feel like on a much deeper level when we experience abundance as gratitude and compassion, that's when you really feel it's almost like a nectar - if you can picture nectar flowing through your whole body, it's nourishing, warm, energy of Lakshmi . . .

Pleasure Consciousness and Rewiring Your Body/Brain

For someone who experienced regular physical and emotional trauma as a young person, rewiring my body and brain toward joyful wellbeing is crucial for my happiness. A tradition of exhilaration is good for the mind, body, and soul. Why not take a few minutes to deliberately feel good everyday - and see what power a healing habit can have in your own life?

One of my favorite things when I mountain bike is riding through fields of sunflowers. I never get tired of being in the middle of it - those flower faces turning toward the sun.  photo: Holly Troy

Last Goodbye – Music Monday

Grateful for the "helloes" in this year full of "good-byes". Good-bye might as well be beautiful. Thank you, Jeff Buckley! photo: Holly Troy
