Getting in Tune


'When we are in tune with Universal Consciousness, when we are synchronised with the non-local intelligence field ~ we become the power that emanates from the One Boundless Force. It gives you strength and flexibility that allows you to meet any challenge effortlessly. You can become capable of transforming any challenge in such a way that it nourishes you. This power comes from within, the internal reference of Spirit and when you have it, nothing is beyond your reach.' ~ Davidji

Goal of Yoga


'Yoga means union. Union of the mind, body and spirit with the Divine. Union of the head with the heart. We need to learn to integrate head and heart ~ the faculties of the intellect are discrimination and concentration, those of the heart are love and compassion. The heart is the passionate centre that fuels the journey to attain true knowledge. There is no spiritual path without the heart. Discovering the infinite space within the heart is the goal of yoga.' ~ Unknown

Rose Goddess

It represents completion, it represents love. I invite you to welcome the feminine image of God ~ the Goddess ~ back into your life. Feel Her presence within you, allow Her to turn the winter of your existence into a creative and life-sustaining spring.' ~ Bettye Johnson

Shakti Goddess Pose


'Shakti is the primordial feminine power that pervades the Universe. According to the Vedas, Shakti is the force that converts the raw cosmic energy of Shiva into the infinite shapes, forms, movements, sounds and colours of Creation.

This celestial matriarch who dwells within us, has three forms: Kali or Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati. As Kali Ma, Shakti represents procreation, the dark void of the cosmic womb from where the Universe emerges. Durga, Kali’s counterpart, is the ‘protectress’, urging us to guard the interests of our families. Lakshmi, the goddess of prosperity, nurtures the young and enriches the domestic environment. And Saraswati, the goddess of wisdom, provides us with the intuition to teach and guide our brood.

A powerful way to access this Shakti-prana and connect with the Divine Mother within, is to practice the Shakti Asana or yoga ‘goddess pose'. With your head pointing east, lie on your back and stretch out your legs, about hip-width apart. Keep your arms by your sides, palms up, then bring the soles of your feet together, so that your knees fall towards the floor on either side. Extend the stretch without straining. Feel the pull in your pelvis and visualise the intake of breath coming in through your body, through the vagina, letting this energy flow up to your belly. Then slowly release it downward and out through the vagina, letting go of all negativity. With each intake of breath imagine Shakti in the form of a white light flooding your Being, activating the powerful Goddess within. Hold the posture for as long as possible and feel her subtle luminescence within you.' ~ Bri Maya Tiwari

For me, the Shakti asana is a way to reconnect with my power as a woman, to embrace the vulnerability of opening my body and spirit to the Divine and to celebrate my beautiful body and my sexuality. Powerful!

Sacred Witness


'Be still. Take time to move within that silent place within yourself. Locate your internal Source of Power. In silence you will find the place of your Sacred Witness, it's the dwelling place of the Soul.' ~ Soul Coaching Oracle Cards by Denise Linn

Grain of Sand


'All you have to do is contemplate a simple grain of sand, and you will see in it all the marvels of Creation. Listen to your heart. It knows all things, because it came from the Soul of the World, and it will one day return there.' ~ The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

World of Relativity


'Why gaze down sewers when there is loveliness all around us? One may find fault in even the greatest masterpieces of art, music and literature. But isn't it better to enjoy their charm and glory? Life has a bright side and a dark side, for the world of relativity is composed of light and shadows. If we permit our thoughts to dwell on negativity, we ourselves will become negative. Look only for the good in everything and then we will absorb this quality of beauty too.' ~ Paramahamsa Yogananda

Stretching


'Sound when stretched is music. Movement when stretched is dance. Mind when stretched is meditation. Life when stretched is celebration.'

Furry Angel Girl


Today I'm in a gratitude space ~ my little silver tigresse Pistachio had her stitches out this morning! Thank you angels, for knitting that gash closed in record time and for helping my little furry angel girl to be brave, endure and return to her sparkling self. The significance of how we mirror each other is not lost on me! (Mom and baby are healing nicely simultaneously!) We are here for each other, how I LOVE this little family of mine. I know we are Divinely guided and protected now and always and I am deeply grateful. Lots of kitty-love ahead this weekend. x

Patient with Life


'Thought for Today: I am patient with myself. I feel good about all the progress I’ve made and how far I’ve come. I let go of the urge to compare myself to others, knowing that everyone has their own unique path. I have patience with Life.' ~ Doreen Virtue

The last of this bladder constriction is slowly leaving me. I will eventually flow freely and expansively again. There is a place beyond this apparent brokenness, I immerse myself in the Great Mystery in each moment, strengthening my TRUST in the healing process. I am patient and strong beyond measure! I have faith in my body's immaculate ability to heal itself fully. I am so grateful for all the progress I have made and celebrate the lightness that is emerging. I am where I am and that is perfect.

Music from Deep Within


'Let yourself be one of the God-mad, 
faithful only to the Beauty you are.
 Let the Lover pull you to your feet and hold you close,
 dancing even when fear urges you to sit this one out.

May we allow the touch of Spirit to guide us even if it makes us look a little 'crazy' to others in how we move, what we are willing or unwilling to do. May we move with awareness of the Presence ~ in the boardroom, the office, the kitchen, the grocery store ~ unafraid to dance, willing to hear the music from deep within.' ~ Oriah Mountain Dreamer

The 'How' of Your Prayer


'We cannot force anything to happen, so why keep trying? Instead, hold the positive vision and intention of your desired outcome and say: 'Dear God ~ Thank you for this or something better!' Then let it go! Remember that the 'HOW' of how your prayer will be answered is up to the infinitely creative Divine Mind. So don't worry about how your prayer will be answered. Trust.' ~ Doreen Virtue

Gateway of Transformation


This day 11-11-11 ~ is a powerful cosmic event when planetary portals open and shimmering shifts take place! A time of rebirth and transformation for us. It is a magic energy gateway opening where things manifest instantly. The numbers 11-11-11 form 'bars' which are a gate to walk through, a true gateway of transformation. In angel numbers, 11-11-11 means keeping our thoughts at the Highest possible level, thinking only about what we desire, not what we fear, as we only want to manifest from the Highest place of Love.

I affirm: At this time of rebirth, renewal and re-adjustment for all humanity, we call forward the blessings of Divine Grace to guide and support our unfolding. May we feel Her support and Her nourishment in the days to come. (Thank you, Lisa!)

I honour this auspicious day with a meditation at 11.11 this morning. Today I am in a space of gratitude. My biopsy results are 100% clear! There are no irregular cells or endometriosis inside my bladder, no malignancy. What a blessing. I move forward today with patience and perseverance, knowing that my beautiful, strong bladder will eventually heal this imbalance itself, perfectly and completely. Today is the turning point. Thank you angels and Divine Mother! x

Soul Work


'I fulfill my creative side. I want to bloom wherever I am planted.' ~ Louise L. Hay

It is my destiny to be planted here. This physical challenge is soul work, my opportunity to grow. Out of this darkness, I am blooming now, healing my body, mind and spirit. My Being is emerging more true, more radiant and more beautiful than ever before. And so it is! I am grateful.

I am Safe


'Affirm: 'I am safe, my loved ones are safe and my entire world is safe.' And so it is!' ~ Doreen Virtue

I pray that tomorrow I will be carried by the angels, safe in the arms of the Divine Mother. I am now and always Divinely protected, I pray that powerful healing forces will be at work during and after my surgery! I trust the healing process and I know the doctors the Universe has sent my way will gently and easily apply their expert treatment and help me heal at last. I am safe and I am at peace. All will be well.

Everything is Unfolding


'Some things you're not letting happen right now because the timing isn't perfect for you. But remember, all things, as they are happening, are happening in Perfect Order. If you will relax and begin saying ~ 'Everything in its perfect time. Everything is unfolding. And I'm enjoying where I am now, in relationship to where I'm going. Content where I am and eager for more'... ~ that is the perfect vibrational stance.' ~ Abraham

You Already ARE


'Take off the overcoat of who you need to be in the world, who you need to be in relationship and who you need to be at your job. And let the soft actuality of your Being just rest here. Just like this, just as you are. Turning from what you should be or what you could be, what you're not yet or what you're not enough of, turning from that to the simple fact of your Being ~ something you don’t have to earn. There is a deep dignity to Being. There is no effort in just letting yourself BE, not trying to grab anyone or get anything or go anywhere, but just filling out your natural dignity. That you get to be here, and you get to be all here. That you don't need an excuse or permission to BE. That you don't have to wait for someone to tell you it's alright to BE. You already ARE. This is an invitation to end the hard work at being anything different than you are, just BE, here and now.' ~ Jeannie Zandi

Self Compassion


'Today is a day to practice self compassion and leave your tight hold on the things you think Life was supposed to give you behind. Practice gratitude for everything in your life that you do have, let go of perfectionism, and be kind to yourself. Develop a true conscious contact with a Higher Power and you will come together in love and illumination. Miracles happen through love and compassion, not fear and competition.' ~ Colette Baron-Reid

Today I'm staying focused on love and compassion and praying for a miracle.

Guidance of Synchronicity

I let go of my anxiety and trust Life's healing process. I know that the Universe is conspiring for my Highest Good in this moment, even if I am in pain. Only love exists. Love, not fear. Amen.

Awakening to Spring


'Sit quietly, do nothing, spring comes and the grass grows by itself.' ~ Zen saying

'Expect to have hope rekindled. Expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways. The dry seasons in life do not last. The spring rains will come again.' ~ Sarah Ban Breathnach

'Never yet was a springtime, when the buds forgot to bloom.' ~ Margaret Elizabeth Sangster

I am awakening to spring in mind, body and soul. It seems that my body is healing in perfect unison with Mother Nature. I welcome spring with all my heart this year! I'm so happy to feel warmer breezes, see trees budding new leaves and to inhale the sweet, blossomy smell of spring evenings. Simultaneously my precious bladder is finally relaxing its urgency ~ softening, restoring, returning to wholeness and balance, healing itself beautifully, perfectly. This is yet another cycle, my season for reconnection with Self. Divine Universal intelligence created this health imbalance that persisted, until I stopped panicking enough to truly listen to what it is here to teach me. My prayers are being answered in wondrous ways as I write this. I am healing. I am re-birthing from the hibernation of pain and depression I felt trapped in for too long this winter. My own dry spell, when my heart cracked open and I went to the very edge of despair. This cracking and deep release was beautiful and necessary for my healing, a Divine gift. I am so grateful and relieved to emerge now, so that I may shine again.

I believe in the promise of new beginnings, I trust that love conquers fear, that my body's infinite inner wisdom knows exactly how to heal. Healing just happens, if we TRUST, just as we trust that our time of constriction will give way to expansion in the perfect time and springtime will come around to greet us again. Happy Spring Day!
