H20 Purify & Hydrate


  • any compound that contains water of crystallization
  • supply water or liquid to in order to maintain a healthy balance; “the bicyclists must be hydrated frequently”
  • become hydrated and combine with water

Water droplet with the earth in it.Your body is an amazing vessels that can naturally heal itself if given the opportunity. After a holiday weekend dedicated to celebration life, liberty, freedom, and more, how do you feel? Did you use the holiday to ‘let loose’ by indulging in chips, guacamole, BBQ, & many beers while being outside in the Cali sunshine? How is you body feeling today?

How do you get back on track and feel good again? You Hydrate. Drink water. Refuel your sanctuary and cleanse out the toxins you indulged in over the weekend. Our food supply has changed drastically and so many Americans load up on packaged, processed, and junk that does not satisfy our cells. I believe most of how American’s choose to live is with the ‘quick fix’ – drinking, partying, loading up on fats and animal products, consuming sugar and ingesting endless quantities to have some kind of satisfaction – whether that be a buzz, a high, a sweet taste delight, or a filing a void that people think is ‘hunger’. We load up, we eat, and we love to consume and do the ‘American’ thing of BBQing, eating, and consuming foods that internally just deteriorate our health and more importantly, inhibit your body to heal and perform optimally.

 Recover from your weekend. Let yourself forgive and move forward. Make better choices now. Does that mean going to the gym every day, running five extra miles to burn those calories, or taking a torching yoga class to physically look good? Not quite. It’s funny how people believe we need to ‘work hard’ and ‘train’ in order to look good. It begins with your body, it starts with your soul and remembering that self care begins by being aware.

 Hydrate. Purify your cells and internal organs with Nature’s greatest gift – Water!

Water makes up 71% of our planet and we are so blessed to have so many forms of water on the planet – lakes, rivers, oceans, streams, etc. I believe water is the most healing form of anything. How good does it feel when you jump in the Ocean? My body becomes alive and restored. The same thing happens inside your body – water cleanses and clears and helps your body upshift and heal so you can feel better. (Also why you often crave water when you wake up with a hangover). It’s a miracle elixir! Water is vital to access consciousness and liberate your cells and anything and everything that perhaps has gotten trapped inside. We need water. Our filtering systems are not the same, and much tap water is actually incredibly harmful to your health since it is full of nasty toxins, like Flouride, that actually harm your body. If you’re not yet consuming PURE water, make an effort to get the your local Water store and fill up. It’s worth the extra money and time and is critical for your health.


Water purifies because it carries the element hydrogen. Hydrogen is considered the hydrating element (h20), thus water is simply hydrogen with oxygen. Hydrogen is found throughout our body in the lymph, brain, lungs, liver, kidneys, spleen, pancreas, muscles, and more. It helps regulate the body’s temperature by moving oxygen through your system and moistens your lungs so you can breathe and cool your system down. Isn’t that amazing? Hence why breathing, yoga, and learning to tame your breath is so critical for health and wellness. Without hydrogen, and with shallow breathing, blood cannot optimally flow through your body and remove toxins and filter out waste. Breathing is essential to live. Water is essential for your body to continue to operate. Thus hydrogen, and water, aid in the process of digestion and elimination. If you are loading up on crap without anything pure and real, your body is going to feel it and become stagnant. That’s how disease forms. After a weekend of fun in the sun and more, please give back to your body – breathe and hydrate. Bring your body back to a balanced state with filtered pure water. Maybe even try on a day of fasting and only drinking water. You may be surprised how much more your body will love you when you relax, stop eating, working hard, and give it time to heal and come back to a vibrant state.water


Signs of excess hydrogen – bloating, puffiness, swelling, puffy hands, stiff neck, low energy, usually constipated or does not eliminate daily.

Signs of hydrogen deficiency- similar to dehydration, irritated, inflammation, cramps, salty food cravings, dry or wrinkled skin, overly heated. Lack of hydrogen really messes up your internal machine and can result in affecting your brain to the point that your brain begins to shut down. This is why we need water to survive.

            Often if you loose over 1% of your body weight while sweating, your body goes into dehydration mode, and if your body continues to loose water (about 9-12% of your body weight) you can die.


Best Moisture Containing & Water Based Foods:

Citrus, oranges, vegetable juices, apricots, asparagus, blackberries, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, celery juice, chard, cherries, pineapples, blueberries, prunes, sauerkraut, spinach, strawberries, swiss chard, tomatoes, turnips, watermelon…


Water Tips:

  • Buy yourself a nice glad waterbottle & keep it with you at your desk. Continue to drink water throughout your day and create deadlines for yourself (like drink my water bottle before 11am)
  • Your body needs WATER, not FOOD first thing. Keep a glass of water by your bed and drink it first thing when you wake up. Continue to hydrate in the AM with lemons to get awaken your body and break your sleep fast.
  • Get in touch with water. Take a walk on the beach, put your feet in the ocean, or swim in the waves! Do something to immerse yourself in water. You will be surprised at the energetic shifts and the healing powers of water. The ocean and natural fresh stream water is obviously best, however a pool works to.
  • When you choose to drink alcohol, enjoy a cup of water in between cocktails and beers.
  • Flavor up your water with lemons, cucumbers, berries, etc
  • Drink water at room temperature. The colder the water the more energy it takes the body to use it and affects your digestion
  • Hydrate before and after meals. When you are eating, don’t chug water with your food.
  • Drink when you are thirsty, and sip even when you are not



Summer of Power

wakeupWhat a crazy hot mess this these last 6 months have been. Time has moved fast and suddenly we are in the later part of the year. Cheers to the Summer of Awakening! Summer is the season of love, of light, and having fun and enjoying. It’s time to rise with the sun and make the most of every day. Wake up feeling alive and good so you can set intentions in your day. To me, this Summer is a about making a choice to step into your Power for change. Just like the sun shines and emits powerful healing energy for us and for plants, and more, it’s no coincidence that the Summer is meant to be the more alive and bright time of the year. Step outside, have fun, and enjoy. Quite worrying about what was or might be. How about enjoy today?

What is Power? Power is connecting to your own inner guidance and being about to listen to YOU. We all have so many layers and unconscious beliefs running in our minds that it’s very easy to get lost. To feel confused, unsure, to think we know what we want, but really have no idea. It’s easy to get stuck or feel disconnected. I believe those are all signs that your are holding something negative within you. That you are choosing to not own your own power and live the life you want. How about finding delight in whatever imperfection you are experiencing? Why not own your power by making a new choice and starting again? Choose YOU this Summer. Change your old habits and routines, and find things that pleasure you in the now. I’m not talking about substances or quick fixes – those are ways of the past. Do something different that will let you naturally wake up feeling powerful, good, healthy, and so full in your own mind, body, and heart. Deep down you know what want – what’s stopping you from achieving?

Every day you have the power to decide how you want to live and how you want to feel. Wake up this Summer and live you life with your own radiance and light. Your power resides in your core- it’s who you are – it’s your soul – your spirit- what’s inside of you. This Summer take your Power back into you and set new changes to spark your own change. Digest life in a new way, feed your body differently, and find lightness in experiencing yourself in new ways. Seek out what feeds you and do things that elevate your spirit. Wake up and LIVE. Become Alive by setting your energy and dictating what you want. Let the people be as they are. Choose yourself. Love yourself. Take Power into your hands by living happily – with your own inner flame. Let it shine!

Many people think gosh that’s hard to do. Or why does this happen? What about this? Well this person wants me to do this. Stop. Breathe. Live. Check back in. This Summer is about being happy and raising your vibration so you have joy and fulfillment. You dont need anyone or anything to create that. The power is in you. It’s your choice how to own it and ofcourse how to live it.

Ways to Live in Light & with your own divine Power:

  • Eat healthy and light foods, your body needs less during this season
  • Eat less, feel more. Stop reaching for those foods, sugary treats, alcohol, weed, or substances that give you a quick fix.
  • Enjoy being outside as much as your can. Make a promise to spend at least 10 minutes in the sunshine. Walking is great too, get out in the fresh air and connect with nature
  • Swim in the ocean (or a lake, or pool) as much as your can. I believe water helps us heal in infinite forms and ways. Let the water purify and cleanse what no longer needs to a part of you.
  • Rise with the Sun – Set your alarm early and make the most of every day. Try watching a sunrise too!
  • Meditate. With all the high speed energy and busy celebrations, you need time for you. To be in silence. Calm the chatter. Breathe.
  • Stop saying YES to things that you don’t really want to do. It’s okay to say No.
  • Heal with food: Enjoy raw veggies, smoothies, and new salad recipes. Taste the greens. Choose lots of vibrant colors for your plate, especially tones of yellow or orange to help stimulate your digestion (your power center)
  • Check in constantly with you. Not feeling okay? Get help. Vent. I believe energy is work is the best and fastest way to feel good. Reiki, yoga, massage, give yourself and your body something to help…
  • Choose what you want – and live in that state.


2014 ~ Year of YES.

Well 2014 is off to the most interesting beginning… I’ve decided that 2014 is the year of YES.Yes-You-Can
It is time to be courageous, to step out of your box, to do the impossible, to DREAMBIG and LIVE bigger, and time to face reality and create it and enjoy. This year, I’ve decided, is about ME. Doing what is best for me, my body, and my soul. To laugh when people don’t understand or lie, to be vocal about what I want, and to make choices that make me feel happy and free and so so ALIVE. Say YES to you!! Life is about living. Are you living fulling? Or are you stuck in the past or in your mind?

I’m a student of life, and wow, I learned a lot last year. I fostered connections that are only real in fairy tales. Things evolved in the most crazy of ways. I learned a whole lot about myself. I fed myself off books, and enjoyed yoga trainings that helped me grow as a person. I learned what it means to come into alignment. I crossed a border and entered into a whole new world of living. I kept asking questions, and eventually, I got answers. I laughed a lot, but I cried a whole lot more. I learned to feel, and to use my temple- the body- as a gage. I felt others make mistakes, and helped heal people back into place. 2013 – the year of highs and lows, lessons and growth, people and connections, consciousnesses and more…

yes2014 – it is the year of YES. I’m ready for change, I embrace it, and I understand it more. After a year of being so so lost and confused, and another year of learning and connecting deeper to myself, this year I know will grow bigger, I will be vulnerable, I will speak without hiding back, and I will continue to be honest and open. I will say things as they are, even if it risks loosing people, trusting that by aligning with my truth, the universe will pave the way. You are on this planet to grow and to evolve. Everything is connected. It’s time for the world to change. We all need it. This year I say YES. YES to the people who inspire me, the friends who care about me, and the connections I’ve made that I synchronicity have come together. I trust my intuition. I know my dreams. I know how open I am, and always have been. I’m ready for life. No longer to do I cling or chase or doubt or desire. I need nothing but faith within myself. This magical world I call life is quite divine and so wild. So right now, in this new year, I ask you: Are you a YES to you? Or are you still holding on to that person, those friends, that family pattern, that belief, and that idea that society told you how to be? Or are you allowing yourself to BECOME?

It’s all possible when you are able to accept your path, take your journey, be willing to do the work, and remember those wonderful things and people that help you grow, inspire, and show you step into your light. Say YES to YOU and only YOU. It’s hard at first. It’s scary. It can be lonely. It can take time. But the second you override everything that once was, and start to focus on what could be, life suddenly becomes easy and magical. It’s a process, it’s a journey. Say YES to you. Listen you what truly makes you feel good. Set your boundaries with those negative and toxic people. Enjoy a positive atmosphere and surround yourself in good energy. I promise it works… When you weed out the bad, you make way for the good…. Live in alignment with YOU. Be your Yes. Feel well. Feel great. And wake up alive in every day! YES.

This next month I’m doing a chakra series in my yoga classes. Teaching how to open up to the YES in you and align fully physically and energetically in the best way possible. YES. Try it, say it, sing it, speak it, feel it, do it, and LIVE it. YES. Yes. YES.


Food Allergies – What’s ‘Normal’?

The world as we know it has changed, and is changing. Things are happening. Our food supply has evolved into a corporate marketing business. Not much is just natural. Why? I wish I knew. Educate yourself. I suffered a long time and no one could tell me why. They just told me I was crazy. Was I? It is wrong for a kid to cry because they are in pain from eating? In our society, yes. To me, no. I just knew something was not right and that the food I was ingesting did not sit well with me. It made me ill. But how was I suppose to know that was not ‘normal’? I knew all along…

Medical Astrology ~ Symptoms Explained!

This is fascinating. I believe.


Medical astrology – Wikipedia

Medical astrology posits the association of each sign of the zodiac with parts of the body, and was already mentioned by Marcus Manilius (1st century AD) in his epic poem (8000 verses) Astronomica. The signs of the zodiac were believed to preside over the parts of the body, covering the body from head (Aries) to toe (Pisces), as follows:[2]

  • Aries – head, face, brain, eyes
  • Taurus – throat, neck, thyroid gland, vocal tract
  • Gemini – arms, lungs, shoulders, hands, nervous system, brain
  • Cancer – chest, breasts, stomach, alimentary canal
  • Leo – heart, chest, spine, spinal column, upper back
  • Virgo – digestive system, intestines, spleen, nervous system
  • Libra – kidneys, skin, lumbar region, buttocks
  • Scorpio – reproductive system, sexual organs, bowels, excretory system
  • Sagittarius – hips, thighs, liver, sciatic nerve
  • Capricorn – knees, joints, skeletal system
  • Aquarius – ankles, calves, circulatory system
  • Pisces – feet, toes, lymphatic system, adipose tissue

The planets are also associated with certain portions and functions within the body:

The anatomical-astrological human

  • Sun – heart, spine, and general vitality
  • Moon – stomach, digestive system, female organs, lymphatic system
  • Mercury – brain, central nervous system, thyroid gland, five senses, hands
  • Venus – throat, kidneys, thymus gland, sense of touch, ovaries
  • Mars – muscles, head, adrenal glands, senses of smell and taste
  • Jupiter – liver, thighs, feet, growth, pituitary gland
  • Saturn – skin, hair, teeth, bones, the body’s defenses, spleen
  • Uranus – parathyroid gland, neural activity, aura
  • Neptune – pineal gland, psychic healing
  • Pluto – pancreas, metabolism, elimination

After examining an individual’s natal chart, a medical astrologer may give advice to the client about the areas of the body in which they are most likely to experience trouble. For instance, an individual with the Sun, Moon, Ascendant, or many planets in the sign of Aries is presumed to have more headaches than other people because of the association of Aries with the head. A person with Taurus strong in the natal chart is predicted to have many sore throats and problems with the voice because of the Taurean association with that particular part of the body.[citation needed]
