Begin Again


Life moves fast. There are always unexpected rip currents, rapids, and waves of emotional, mental, spiritual shifts that often leave us grieving some kind of outcome. Why is that? Human nature likes to hold. We find value in what we have done, what we have received, what has happened to us, and enjoy sharing the gifts that universe brings…. until something goes wrong, and a mysterious event propels our entire world to change. We don’t like to share about the darkness, so we hide and forget that those moments that make us crash are actually opportunities to rise above…and especially – change. We grieve for better a life, more people, better job, more money, etc. We forget about the basics that keep life simple, yet so happy: happiness and health. The extreme high of merely being alive, in a body, with a heart, and with the opportunity to choose your life as you experience it.

Of course things will happen, people will come and go, and other endless tides of uncertainty will manifest. No doubt there will be change and sometimes disaster, and that is okay. If you could take a moment to pause, take a deep breathe, feel your feet in the Earth, and look upon the horizon, at the sun shine, for the beautiful day that is, then maybe a new perspective would be seen. Life is meant to be enjoyed. Whatever you are doing, whatever your experience is, is perfectly okay. You are not meant to get somewhere or achieve something. Though, many are naturally inspired to work towards that. The beauty of life is found in the stillness, noticing, and being aware of the precious gifts that we are around us all daily. Some days they are harder to find than others, yet they remain. It may be a good friend, a loyal partner, a fun job, or living in a place that brings you, your soul, happiness. Be grateful. When the storms of life cause you to take a new road or walk a new path, accept what was with love. Forgive your mistakes and childish acts. Dismiss when your emotions got out of hand, and laugh about that time things went a little weird. Love the people who have helped you gain wisdom, clarity, and most importantly, made you smile. You are wonderful. Life is wonderful.Take a fresh breathe on the horizon of your life and see the wonderfulness you have already.

We move fast, we forget, things happen, and there is a lot to grieve about, complain about, and many things to fix within the Universe. Truth, I won’t deny it. Plant your feet, stand tall, and choose today to see the beauty it all that is, and what can be. If you’re holding something heavy in your heart – Act on it. Call that friend, send a nice text message, or breathe and let it go. Life begins when we choose to see clearly the light and love that is always around us. Embrace the uncertainties, the moments you want to cringe and fall, and let the Universe provide you with so much Love. Begin today to see yourself as a new vessel that carries light and sprinkles it wherever you go. Be aware. Notice what magic unveils when you choose to anchor Love, share love, and be love while sharing your authentic light with others to enjoy. Have a laugh. No worries, only humility and acceptance that some things must die, those emotions never lie… Act when you need, let your heart guide you to advance. Every day you can choose different, live better, make life beautiful. This Universe truly is Beauty, when we choose to see it that way…. Let yesterday be behind you, begin today with a new perspective and opportunity to begin again…



Monday Mantra ~ March 16, 2015 ~ Open to All

stayopenWow, three long ruthless years have passed and we are collectively at the end of a great Planetary Shift that has been happening. Hallelujah! We made it. Many are unaware of what has transpired, many have no idea, however many will begin to see the change that has been created and how much better life will be from this point on. For those that follow Astrology, 2012 was the beginning of the grand Pluto/Uranus Square which welcomed in many obstacles and challenges on and off in the past three years. For me, I’ve had tremendous change that has caused me to look reality in the face and do much inner self work. (Dont worry there is a whole long story about that). The Universe shook me hard and asked me to change so i could live happier and more in alignment with my soul. Though it was challenging, and a rocky ride, I have to say I’m in the best state ever today. Through relationships, teachers, and grand synchronicity opportunities, the Universe has created a world better than I ever knew possible. It began with my own desire to change and live a more fulfilling life that was beyond the top floor of a corporate ‘dream job’ I thought I had to have. God, The Universe, Spirit, Buddha, Whatever you want to call IT knows what is best for you. When you fight it, hide, or draw back in fear, you create more struggle for yourself. Always. There is no exception. It can be truly challenging to let go of friendships, people you love, and be an advocate for your own growth my saying NO to others. If you never open yourself up, you will never know what better opportunities the Universe has planned out for you.

This week we end the Grand Pluto/Uranus Square. For those conscious and aware, you will probably already know what this means and have an idea of what may surface. There have been all kinds of signs, messages, and tellings that are promoting you to act and change. What have you recieved and noticed? I imagine many people from the past will come up or come back in. Be mindful and act with intention. Breathe. Take a moment to decide who and what is truly serving YOU NOW. Be kind, and speak from your heart. The medicine of the soul is honest and true, and when you speak with love and openness there can never be any harm. Only joy and acceptance when people truthfully exchange words that are in alignment with what they want. Of course, many of us do not know how to act from our heart and still allow our Egos to sooth and dictate what is real. I invite anyone reading this to be cautious, especially as we transition this week into Spring. Let abundance in. Allow new opportunities to be explored. Trust in what is coming. Those messages and voices that continue to come up, are messages for you to act on. Stop ignoring the Universe. God wants to grant you a better and happier life. Surrender and change. This is the way in this New Age of Aquarius. It is vital to get onto your yoga mat, do the inner work and take on a meditate practice. Even if it’s only ten minutes with closed eye breathing. Everything counts. To stay open you need to learn to connect to the inherent answers within… This comes with meditation, with practice, and with your ability to focus on what only YOU know to be true.

Relax this week, listen to what your mind, body, & spirit are guiding you towards. Perhaps there are people you have lost touch with and want to rekindle with. Maybe there is someone you are drawn to that can help you. Perhaps you try a new teacher, or get some body work done. Any energy work this week will help you be more clear for the fresh energy that is coming with the Spring. Leave your fear to the past and open up…. have those conversations, write that letter or email, send a text of gratitude to those who have helped you get where you are. The last 3 years have been challenging. For Yogis,who are on the Spiritual Quest (you know who you are), we are all awakening and changing to live more centered in LOVE. Love is all that matters, whoever you are, it is up to you to Open up for it, share it, teach it, and most importantly Live it. Ego will battle you to stay withdrawn, closed, and disconnected. Let Love lead the way with an open heart, a clear mind, & endless opportunities that the Universe guides you with this week.

Should me a mysterious week with magic & more. Open you eyes, tune in to whats happening, and let your inner yearning me free by trusting and acting like a Yogi fully in Love with yourself – no fear, no anger, no pain, just Love 🙂

Cheers fellow Indigos, Yogis, Awakened Souls, & those still seeking… The we made it to the Golden Age & survived the storm of whatever had to happen for us to evolve. Be the Light, share the Light, & Love ❤

Stay Open. Stay Truthful. Be Honest, Be Free. Love & Enjoy the Magic!

Choose Love.

unconditionalloveAmericans are funny, in that most consider Christmas & the holiday season to be based around Santa, getting, giving, and presents or parties. While that is a nice thing to celebrate at the end of the year, December is really about reflecting and allowing yourself to slow down, wind down, and pave a new way for the Winter season & upcoming new year. December, to be, is a celebration of Love, of light, and a peaceful ending to whatever has been.

The holidays stress us all out and create disharmony. That’s normal. Choose love this year. If you are single, without your family, or busy working during the season, reconnect to your faith and cherish yourself for who you have become. This is the season of Love and when it is important to also do a cheers for you, what you have accomplished, and who you have become. It’s not about being accepted, having the decorations, or even having a partner to kiss under the mistletoe… those all come in time.

The end of the year is a deep period of transition. Your body is probably feeling it, perhaps you are even feeling the urge to stay in, be within yourself, or seek out some quiet time. That’s because Winter is coming and it’s the season to hibernate and relax. Choose you this Christmas, and choose Love. Everyone is having moments, emotions, frustrations, sadness, and what I call ‘episodes’. Let them be, let it be. Come back to your love, your heart, and fill yourself with gratitude for wherever you are at. Be happy for what you DO have. Be grateful for friends you have met this year, people who have helped you, old friendships, and be good around your family. 

Choose love in everyone who crosses your path, with whatever the Universe yields you, and whoever comes your way. There will be much expected surprises the next two weeks. Choose love always.

When you love yourself, you know yourself, and you know your intention, who you are, and what you stand for. People can think otherwise, as they choose. I’ve let go of people, I’ve had friends move away, and in this year, I celebrate ME this December. I’ve learned that the world will never be perfect. It’s human nature to serve your ego, until you do the work to stop it. Even Yogis, claiming to be all Zen have their moments, and just because they ‘teach’ does not always mean they care or are consciously connected to the light in the heart always. We all fall out of balance and alignment, it’s part of being human. We all forget that Love is always the answer. Come back to your heart this Christmas/Holiday, and serve you. Share love with others, remind them, and help people remember Love is all we all are looking for. End this year well, with love. Say sorry to those you hurt, make up with people who have parted, acknowledge souls that have brought kindness to your life, and do something fun for You. Remember your greatness, share a smile, and do something nice for a special friend. Love is all you need ❤

The New Age Yogi – Authentic, Real, or Phonie?

It is so interesting to watch how people awaken and what actions and steps they take to help fulfill themselves. I work at a yoga studio and see many people make it to their mat on a routine basis. I see people wanting to grow and thrive. I’ve witnessed teachers feeling better about life after learning about what Yoga is and doing teacher trainings. It’s remarkable. How they show up, what they do outside, how they treat others, what they say, and what they do to ‘promote’ themselves though is another story. Yoga is meant to help you shed the ego, not build more ego and remain in your own self centered actions & patterns. Yoga is about living in this world with a purpose to serve, and help everyone feel better, more loved, more joyful.

trueyogaYoga teaches us to be our own authentic self. It is not about getting to that popular class, or having a certain teacher, or even working out. Yoga is  science that helps you expand so you can be the best version of you. So you can create abundance and joy in your world. We meet teachers who inspire us and help us see the light. Ultimately, it’s about being you own teacher and learning to let go ego centered patterns so you can live more in alignment with your own self.

I laugh a lot at the funny world I now live in. Yogis? We are weird people, well everyone is weird to some degree. We all make mistakes, do things unconsciously, and we all are seeking to be better. That’s truth. The real path of a yogi is about being you and living it. There is hope for humanity when we choose to expand and look with in and go within. I see so many people posting photos about their remarkable transformation, new muscle tone, body, handstand, whatever. Stop. Instead of showing, how about living? Live the Yogic life. Make it your mat because you are ready to do the work, breathe, calm down, and help fill the world with more peace, light, and love.

The ego will always get you, unless you rein it and brush it aside. Personally, I see many people in my workforce or industry locally seeking other peoples ideas and copying or rewriting. I call this phonie. If you are going to take someone’s words, ideas, or use their creativity, you should at lease give credit. I set up some business stuff and the next week saw others rewarding my personal phrases on their own shit. Funny. Are you living your truth? Probably not. But hey, your instagram photos of you in a bikinni or flexing your new bicep, might circulate a like. Congrats. My words are real, honest, and my truth. I don’t need to post a picture of it, share what I ate, or babble all over my own social media to generate likes or love. I can create my own ideas and share my gifts because I’m seeking within, not looking around. Yoga is a powerful practice. It can transform you. You need to seek within though. Drop the ego, stop wanting the likes, the clicks, and thinking you are better than everyone else simply because. We are all connected and here to empower another and live in our Truth. If that is copying, posting, and whatever ego centered I call bullshit fad, then have fun. Great that works for you. Real light and authenticity comes from tapping in spiritually, connecting, and doing things that serve the planet and are written in your own truth.

I am so honored to have found yoga. I’ve figured it out for myself. It feels wonderful that other ‘yogis’ come to my classes, see how I show up, and see words I’ve written, and are ‘inspired’ to rewrite them or copy my own efforts. Its funny. At least thank me for the inspiration or honor who I am to my face. I hope you have the courage one day to walk your own path of truth, live authentically in your own light. The world needs more real Yogis, not phonies. We all need to grow, learn, and serve with purpose. That’s the yogi way. I smile still, I honor those ego qualities in others, and I still love and accept them for who they are though. Hoping they can awaken and have the courage to live, breathe, be, and grow.


Celebration of Purpose ~ On Living & Loving

And here it is, the end of May, almost the end of Spring and the end of a tremendous cycle of change and transition. Geez. What is the cosmic universe we live in and who are we and what is the purpose of it all? That I’m still asking, but each day it is becoming more clear and I triumph with how far I’ve come. This past year I’ve learned how to step into myself and find liberation fully in being me, living me, and loving me.loveself


Three years ago I started to ask the question, ‘what is my purpose?’ I suddenly was no longer satisfied working at a desk at my so called ‘dream job’ and something in me knew there had to be something more. My values began to change, new people began coming into my life, and I found myself choosing yoga beyond other activities like bar hopping. I was young but things that were once satisfying were no longer pleasing or enjoyable. I reached a point where I needed something more, a change, people who inspired me, a job that excited me, and something that would put a smile on my face. I yearned for happiness and a life that felt fulfilling. So in the magical year of 2011, on Memorial Weekend, I called up my friend and told her to enroll me in Yoga teacher training. She did not question it, in fact a few months prior, she had planted the seed. I did not know anything about the training, only the meeting dates. What I did know was I found happiness in the yoga studio, and despite whatever ‘real world’ problems I found, I always made it back onto my mat. Hot yoga had been a vessel for me to channel my emotions, my family issues, pain, and let me get into my body in new ways. It felt good, I liked it, and I chose to be there. I needed a shift in my life. I was unhappy and felt stagnant and lost. Although I had zero intention to teach, I craved being a student again and demystify what this yoga thing really is about and wanted to know why I was put on this planet.


Two years ago I was asked to audition at CorePower Yoga and by June 2012 I was hired. It’s funny where the universe begins to take you when you begin to open for it. By that time I had gotten laid off of my corporate job and was still asking that deeper question, ‘why am I here’ ‘why is this happening to me?’. I did not understand. I know now we never really will know what people come into our lives or what role they may play or what outcome we all may create. 2012 was an interesting year and as I began teaching yoga I learned how to tune into my own inner truth and self. For the first time I was doing something that was fulfilling me, and most importantly I was helping others find that inner piece that yoga helps us all connect to. People told me I was good at it, and it felt good knowing Best+Quote+wallpaper+funny+propossal+201.+Best+Quote+wallpaper+funny_043e0d_4853781I was finally doing something meaningful. I am so grateful for CorePower Yoga and all the amazing people who have helped me evolve, in the space, and in life. I learned quickly that teaching yoga was more than just showing up and explaining the body or physical poses. Real yoga is about learning how to be your own teacher, and take steps to grow in your own life – on the mat and off. The mat is the tool, the journey is your life. 2012 I learned how to become my own teacher, how to teach myself to find my own inner satisfaction. I learned how to show up, and how to respect the others, and how to find compassion in realizing that this crazy universe will always guide us in a direction that really is best – everything does happen for a reason, when you are willing to see it. I stepped into my power, learned to speak up, to hold space, give to others, and do something that I enjoyed.


Now this May, I reflect back on 2013 and celebrate one hell of a year. I have been gifted with many special teachers and people so connected to me, that they have guided me forward in my dharma and purpose. I celebrate me and where I was, and where I am now. This past year I had a special teacher (not in the yoga room) who was a friend, change roles in my life and it taught me how to grow within myself. This person did not communicate much with me much this year, however, the intensity of this connection and what I felt with it, drove me to reflect back on myself. After all, we are all merely reflections of one another, helping us grow and learn. The new question I asked was ‘What is this feeling?’ ‘why do I feel like this?’ This past year I have transformed and dealt with many lessons and woke up. I am learning what it’s like to love yourself and how to find love within. This teacher of mine, has reflected in me my own light and has inspired me to do the inner work and love myself – who I am, by body, and my own inner being. I did not know what was going on or why things were happening, I had to start listening though and was led to spiritual growth. 2013 has been about me recognizing that there is a divine power and a deep seated mystery that we will never know – let me call that ‘the universe.’ A year ago I was so confused and just going through the motions of becoming. This person showed me love, let me feel it, and in truth, intentionit was something so magical that words cannot describe the deep connection and feelings that were invoked. I had to asked the question and do the work though, and tune inward to find liberation. I had to learn to surrender, to stop asking why and to start trusting as I overcome to find complete harmony within myself.


This past year I’ve taken my yoga off my mat and have asked even deeper questions. I had some personal events take place and the pain and emotions were unbearable and quite confusing, and something that no one will every in this lifetime understand. This year I’ve healed myself; I’ve cried, I’ve journaled, and I’ve invoked new spiritual practices that I once thought were pointless, silly, or useless. The universe guided me to it, and I eventually reached a point where I could not help but believe. The universe gives you help when you ask, however, sometimes things happen and there is no real answer or explanation as to why. Things happen that we don’t understand. What I’ve learned is that there is a divine magic in the universe, and that people and things come together for reason and purpose. There are synchronistic events and nothing is by chance or coincidence. The universe has a plan, and it is up to use to do the best we can in the place we are at. We are a student on the mat, in the pose, but also in life. I asked the question, of why I am here, and what is the meaning of this thing called life? I knew it was beyond sitting at a desk, getting a paycheck, and finding the perfect mate. That’s silly. It’s about learning to be a student of your own life, asking your own questions, and taking the reins for yourself so your life can have direction and most importantly – meaning.


These past three years have been life changing. I do my yoga, I arrive on my mat. I yoga further with Teacher Training, where I learned what yoga was, then, without intention, I became a teacher in the yoga room. The universe did some wild things, brought in many people to help me, however it was not until this past year, after the inner work had been done, that I’m finally able to be at ease with life and where I am. The work never ends, the journey continues, but I find satisfaction in recognizing where I am and what I’ve overcame. I sit back this memorial weekend and reflect.. After the wildest three years of my life, I celebrate me – who I am now. I wanted happiness, I wanted to smile, and now three years later, I’ve learned what I was seeking all along was Love. Love for me, for who I am, and this spirit within me that has been yearning to come out. Yoga is the science, lifestyle, and vessel I believe everyone can benefit from. It teaches us divine Union – how to come back into ourselves and who we really are. Yoga found me, teachers navigated me forward, and spirituality found me, but I had to do the work to find , and continue to find, Union within mlovethisyouyself.


I believe that people can tell you what you need to do and should accomplish, but the real magic happens when you are able to listen to yourself. To tune into what you want, and instead of talking about it and wondering, take an active stance to make a change. I have been blessed in the past three years to have many connections and profound teachers come into my life. They have helped me grow, they have taught me on the mat and beyond, and have let me become who I am today. I will always be grateful. However, my own journey only started because I knew I wanted more for myself. Today I celebrate my own accomplishments and my own journey. I asked the question three years ago, and now I’m so much more clear. It is said you need to love yourself first to find love. I believe it. I did not know what love was, but I felt there was something more for me, and I’ve learned to find it within myself. I now live my life doing things that I enjoy and love. I stopped seeking outside answers, and chose to take an inner journey and to breathe into mind, body, and heart, and learn to unlock who I really am. It took me three years to transform. I now choose love. Love for myself, for who I am, and for what I enjoy. I trust the universe as it guides me forward, and I keep a genuine smile on my face as I continue to master how to love myself, love others, and love life as I step into my purpose and radiate my own light in ways to serve myself and also others.

“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life” ― John Lennon
