Yoga~Yoga… that’s all it really is.
Had a enlightening weekend in workshops with Andrey Lappa and his assistant, Mara Healy. If you are truly a yoga practitioner and you have an opportunity to experience Andrey, by all means go for it! His teachings are around Tantric method of yoga… the full mind and body practice with the goal of reaching enlightenment.
His new book will be released shortly! Practicing yoga poses to bring balance and closer to enlightenment… Very hard to find good teachers that expose you to the spiritual goals of yoga!
Great teachings… I could listen to him for hours and hours!
One very interesting thing that came to me while he was speaking on chakras was the fact that so many people exist in the first three chakras: the root chakra~material drive, the sacral chakra~sensual drive, and the solar plexus~power drive. Many never ascend to the fourth heart chakra~love and compassion drive, fifth~spiritual drive, sixth~intellect… or seventh formless supreme light. This explains some of the difficulties I experience in my close relationships. I could clearly see where they are stuck in those first three chakras!
I love studying the chakras!
In love and light! Namaste!

It’s where I breathe when I fear I am not alive anymore.
It’s where I look inward at the soul that is me.
When I am drained of every last bit of essence, it grounds me, nourishes me, and sends energy into the vital centers of my being. Who would think something so simple would be so powerful?
What a whirlwind of a year it has been! So much of my life fell apart, yet so much of it came together! It was a very painful “letting go” of the broken stuff that was not serving me anymore. It still aches… but I’m healing, and that’s what’s most important. The mat did “catch me” on hundreds of occasions, and I am so grateful. I asked for guidance day in and day out, because I really had no idea of what I was to do most of the time. I am, by far, no expert at this thing called life. I take each day as it comes, and try to do the best and feel comfortable in my heart. But pain is not a comfortable thing.
I am simply striving to accept some truths, and go with the flow that the Universe has presented to me as “my life”. Learning to trust that there is a magnificent energy moving in and around me to create something wonderful that I have been manifesting for quite some time… and transformation is inevitable.
So, I will return to my mat… and let the magic continue.
In love and light!

One of the most delightful practices I have adopted… letting go of what is not working for me!
“I am willing to let go of what isn’t working for me.”
I saw this in one of my readings and it struck me like a revelation! A message loud and clear! The one and only thing I really needed to know more than anything else. So I studied that sentence for a while. Left, and went back to it a few times. It felt so good to just read it.
I thought of all the things, the thougths, the actions and the people in my life that clearly were not working for me! I wondered what on earth am I holding on to these for? What a waste of energy!
Now I find myself in daily situations asking myself, “Is this working for me?” Answers are immediate! I love the practice!
Letting go of what is not working for us should be an ongoing practice. It’s a constant freeing yourself from strain. stress and unhappiness. It makes so much sense. When we won’t let go we are just beating ourselves up. It is a challenge to practice letting go of what is not working… but imagine what it would be like if we only put our energies into the things that ARE working for us!
