Yoga, Work, Love, and Breathing

Breathe consciously and rhythmically; inhale to the count of three, exhale to the count of three. This will synchronize your brain waves and your heart rhythm.
Move calmly. Best is to regularly practice yoga postures or asanas which gently move the body, stretch the muscles and turn the mind inward to more awareness. Asanas performed consciously in the right sequence—with proper holding, concentration, breathing and relaxation—release blockages of energy and recharge you with new vitality.
Resist spending too much effort, no matter what you are doing. Effort needs to be balanced with relaxation.
Take time alone to find yourself. Constantly being in a network of relationships is very draining.

Opening the Heart

“For small beings such as we, the vastness is only bearable through love.” ~ Carl Sagan “Love asks us that we be a little braver than is comfortable, a little more generous, a little more flexible. It means living on the edge more than we care to.” ~ Norman Mailer “Whether or not you believe […]

Touching the Tiger

Eckhart Tolle’s talk completely resonated with me. Always bringing myself to the present moment – it can be work sometimes. This morning the Tiger showed up, but I just allowed myself to be present with it, and it dissipated quickly. I find that when I practice reiki, I feel synched in to the person I […]

International Peace Day

I an so happy and honored that I was invited to join Ellen and Liz of The First Move to be a part of their Peace Manadala Ceremony for International Peace Day.

I can tell you I miss talking – and talking about intentions and spiritual work and community in sacred space – it’s been a long while. A beautiful group of women showed up intending for more peace in the world. Some of us are going to go to Los Angeles in November to get down with Marianne Williamson and Sister Giant.

I’m going!

Peace is Not an Awful Lot to Ask

Oh, David Crosby and Graham Nash – thank you! So inspiring!

I have been to Occupy Tucson and it was exciting. I can’t imagine how it would be at Wall Street. There is definitely a shift in the air . . . a newness, a vitality. A good time to be a musician and an artist again – a good time to be human.

“This is a whole country waking up and saying, ‘Hey, we were supposed to have a vote, we were supposed to have a say . . . ‘”

I wonder who they are/The men who really run this land/And I wonder why they run it/With such a thoughtless hand/Tell me what are their names/And on what street do they live/I’d like to ride right over this afternoon and give them a piece of my mind/About peace for mankind/Peace is not an awful lot to ask

Remembering Divine Abundance of Peace, Health and Plenty

Second, begin to create balance and harmony with all the areas of Prosperity that are most important to you. In other words, if you become fixated and obsessed with manifesting one form of Prosperity (be it romantic love, professional success, Inner Peace, etc.) then you push away ALL forms of Prosperity. Three is such a beautiful, perfect and Magickal number. What are the three forms of Prosperity that are most important to you, right now? Peace, Health and Plenty? Love, Fulfillment and Joy? Time, Beauty and Wisdom? Whatever those three forms of Prosperity are, take a few moments to think about how you can begin to create them or increase them in your life. And remember: “There is a Spiritual solution to every problem.” Be open and receptive to using both practical/Physical Realm and Spiritual/Astral Realm methods and tools.
