Moving Across the World

Have you ever considered a move to a new country? Or maybe you are sitting in a new life in a new country, without it even being your choice. There are times we are called and times we are thrown into a new place. Either way, we must listen to this calling to bring our love and light to this new land and new people. Be it your choice or not, you can learn, grow and share your love and experiences. Being a stranger in a strange land never comes easy. If you are one who has never traveled to a place unfamiliar, I highly suggest it. Even though traveling is just the tapas version of the re-homing experience it will give you a little insight on the subjects that others new in your country are experiencing. One thing this shows us is how we're set in our ways. I know it's hard to want to change. Life is easy, when we're living from our subconsciousness on autopilot. Living on autopilot is a disservice to all, especially ourselves. Being mindful is a moment to moment practice i…

We Are all Natural Born Yogis

The moment you are born into this life, you are on a path. It's the path of yoking your soul to your body-mind union. Religion has given us many ways of looking at this. No matter how you say it, the message is the same. Be healthy in mind and body, then the soul can shine through as your guide. Knowing your ego's desires from your souls calling is knowing the God in you. This is why we practice mindfulness.
 Thanks to all the amazing souls who have so tirelessly faced the truth and lived it out loud in their lifetimes before us and now have struck a cord or, you might say caused a ripple of awakening. Selfishness and greed are our downfalls. The path is full of religions, stories, and guides to help each person find what resonates for them. To condemn one is to condemn all paths. Knowing the God in you is living in the compassion of the truthseekers. So many new and old such as Nelson Mandela, Malala Yousafzai, Mother Teresa, Gandhi, The Buddha, Christ, Guru Nanak. Each has a …

Love the Ultimate Yoga

I’ve heard it said by some people that searching for love is just running away from one's own self-development.  Truly relationships happen for a reason. Sometimes they come to us and sometimes we need to search for them. But don't fool yourself, they're not just about getting our physical and emotional needs met. Having a commitment in one's life is the hardest yoga you will ever do. Being a partner and having a relationship can push your buttons and show you where you need to learn to be compassionate with others and yourself. Negotiating others' needs along with your own, allowing your child or partner to be themselves without undermining their confidence is a skill. Some are here to learn to live with themselves in a more solitary life.This may come in the form of a monk, nun, or public servant.Even then, we all must serve someone. Just consuming and living for your desires will lead to depression, be it in a relationship or alone.

To Meat Or Not To Meat

Each body is unique. The way our food is raised is important. The human is a highly sensitive being. We possess a sixth sense of the violence put into our food. This is one reason hunters kill swiftly - to not cause stress in the animal, as the adrenaline spoils the meat. Taking time to be thankful for the gifts that are given in this form is taking responsibility for the kill. Sadly, most of us are far removed from this process. When one spends time growing this awareness through meditation, then one often finds becoming a vegetarian or vegan is a kind choice.
Many feel that not eating meat is a kindness to other living creatures. My personal experience was: 6 years a vegetarian. Juicing vegetables, eating nuts, dairy, and whole grains. Then, my health was failing. Not knowing why, I had my own yoga practice, along with teaching yoga 3 times a day and being a very active person. With much investigation, it turned out I had many allergies to grains, soy, eggs, and beans - the staples …
