Detachment and flow: myth & truth

Jun 29, 2021

In spirituality, people talk about detachment as a way to be, to reduce suffering, and to flow with the Universe.

It's true that being able to practice detachment and live in the flow increases joy, opportunity, and true love in action. But what people think it looks like - and try to be like - is the big misunderstanding and does more harm than good, wreaking havoc on the mind, body, and relationships. 

The big myth

You breathe through it, and then you fake it til you make it. When...

When you don't know what to do

Jun 22, 2021

The next time you’re feeling stuck, searching for an answer, or trying to make a decision… know that you already know. You may second guess yourself or feel confused, but it’s there. You just need to get quiet and access it. 

Here’s how: 

  1. Sit quietly and ask your question.
  2. Set a timer for 5 minutes and practice the One Simple Breath
  3. Again, sit quietly and ask your question. Listen. And know the answer lies with in you. 
  4. Acknowledge the...

Do you make yourself small to make others comfortable?

May 13, 2021

Have you ever claimed fear over something that was really a projection of something completely different?

When I was 17, I flew for the very first time. My parents sent me on a wonderful, 10-day educational tour of England and Scotland with my honors English teacher and three other seniors from my school district that I didn’t know. Leading up to our trip, the four of us would have “getting to know you” gatherings with our teacher, but I always felt out of place. Two of them...

Key to a fulfilled life

May 13, 2021

I’ve worked with a ton of clients over the years, and the ones that reached the results they were hoping for -and beyond- had ONE thing in common. 

They practiced yoga & meditation daily, come hell or high water, as they say.

The kriya or meditation we chose together had something to do with it for sure, but more importantly, the daily practice gave them the grit and constancy to make their life amazing TO THEM.

 

It will work for you too.

i hated it

May 04, 2021

“I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’” ~ Muhammad Ali

This quote is my regular reminder to keep moving through discomfort and pain. 

Training comes in a variety of forms - sure there is the physical training, but there’s also the daily mental training of life. Perhaps it's the difficult conversation you need to have with your partner, being assertive with your co-worker,...

Being busy isn’t what's draining your energy

Apr 28, 2021

It’s the emotions you bring to what you're doing that's draining you. 

In fact, when your day is full, and you're present for it, including the most mundane tasks… and you meet the difficult ones with open wonder instead of resistance… you’re not drained. You're energized.  

Your habitual thought patterns will want to do their normal thing. Which is to tell you you can't help how you feel. Until you decide to create new ones.

The 4 ways you'll get healed, loved, and fed

Apr 13, 2021

 

We are in a moment in time where, even if you’ve never considered spirituality as a practice before, it’s likely you’re faced with it to some extent. The world is being forced to look at humanity and its values. People are trying to reconcile between their responsibility in the oppression against the underappreciated and the pain (or joy) they feel allowed to express and experience in their own lives in spite of it. 

To be spiritual means to know yourself. This...

How to make your life magical. For free.

Mar 30, 2021

Your story is real. It made you who you are. If you’ve survived your story, that means you’ve taken the steps to survive it, and you have something incredible to share. If you’ve survived some of it and are still working through the rest, you still have survived some of it and have those incredible pieces to share.

Stop making your story your burden and your excuse. 

Become the hero you were meant to be. Step out of that story, use it as your cape, and show others the...

How yoga called on me to bring the sass

Mar 25, 2021

I LOVE CLOTHES. Let me start saying that. 

I used to do plus-sized runway modeling, and I’d get decent discounts for doing so. As my weight went up, I held on to some outfits with the hope I’d get back into them. It’s actually a bit shameful how many clothes I have. As I lost weight, I realized I didn’t like some of the clothes I’d been hanging onto and decided to get rid of a lot of them. I ended up giving away about 16 garbage bags full of clothes-- and I...

Living large and ever-expanding

Feb 15, 2021

I’ve been so caught up in working on my Heart Chakra for the month of February that I almost forgot about two other very important dates in February! I taught my very first official yoga class on February 4th of 2020-- right before the world turned upside down and I needed my practice more than ever, it seems. I remember being very nervous, but having a lot of fun and laughing through much of that first class. My teachers were there, as were family members and friends. They made my...
