Santosha 💜

Are you truly content today my friend? Let’s draw inward, explore, and seek true SANTOSHA. 💜

✨Love ~ Serve ~ Inspire✨

SANTOSHA, the Sanskrit word for contentment, requires our willingness to enjoy exactly what each day brings and to be happy with whatever we have. We can easily practice santosha in the beautiful moments and joyous experiences of our lives. But true contentment means being equally willing to embrace difficult moments. Only when we can be content in the midst of difficulty can we be truly free. Only when we can remain open in the midst of pain do we understand what true openness is. In our relationships, when we accept those around us as they truly are, not as we want them to be, we are practicing santosha. ~ Adapted from Cultivate Your Connections by Judith Lasater

Enjoy a portion of a poem written for me by my husband.

She has santosha with the One True God
In full body worship
In constant course correction
All the way to shava

Allow ❦

What are you allowing for? Allow for what seems impossible. Allow for miracles. BE OPEN TO WHATEVER COMES NEXT! ❦

✨Love ~ Serve ~ Inspire✨

This week’s theme is simply the word ALLOW — very open-ended, very individual. What am I allowing in? Who am I allowing into my life? What am I allowing for? Am I allowing myself to be inspired? To embrace change and grow? What do you want to show up in your life? Allow for that. What you allow is what will continue. Pick something today, make it positive and encouraging. Today I’m allowing myself to be fully present. Today I am allowing myself to create and explore. Today I am allowing for a healthy change. Today I am allowing myself to just be and relax. Today I allow love in, and let fear go. Whatever it is, ALLOW it in. As Oprah Winfrey states, “Even the wildest dreams have to start somewhere. Allow yourself the time and space to let your mind wander, and your imagination fly.” So what will…

Present Moment R.E.T.R.E.A.T. ☀️

“Once a year go someplace you’ve never been before.” ❤️ ~ Anonymous

I have been praying about guiding a yoga retreat for over a year, knowing God’s timing and will are always best. I was given a clear vision. Then, about two weeks ago, my friend Hanan Palz called me to say I have been on her heart to lead a yoga retreat together. Say what? Wow, this is a huge answer to prayer! “Take time to develop a vision. First it happens in spirit. Then it manifests in the physical. Not the other way around.” ~ Melody Beattie

All the details are Divinely coming together, and we would LOVE for you to be a part of our transformational PRESENT MOMENT RETREAT experience! CLICK HERE for dates and details. I highly recommend stepping out of the everyday routine to RETREAT:

Reconnect — Root to rebound. The higher the growth up, the deeper must be the enrooting. Connect deeply within and without. Be still and know.

Explore — Let’s play! Celebrate. What captures your attention? Time is a great luxury. “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” ~ Helen Keller

Tune In — Gently return to center. What do you really need right now? Inquiry leads to more specificity.

Relax — Where can you soften? Presence and awareness encourage healing.

Engage — Be fascinated in possibility. Widen your circle. “Where would you have me go? What would you have me do? What would you have me say and to whom?” ~ Marianne Williamson

Appreciate — Let an inner smile soften your face. “I know precisely what you need to draw nearer to Me. Go through each day looking for what I have prepared for you. Accept every event as My hand-tailored provision for your needs. When you view your life this way, the most reasonable response is to be thankful. Do not reject any of My gifts; find Me in every situation.” ~ Jesus Calling, May 29

Take Away — Insights and integration — Notice what you need to do to stay present, passionate, and peaceful. Be open to growth and transformation.

“I can’t tell you how much I long for you to enter this wide-open, spacious life. We didn’t fence you in. The smallness you feel comes from within you. Your lives aren’t small, but you’re living them in a small way. I’m speaking as plainly as I can and with great affection. Open up your lives. Live openly and expansively! ~ 2 Corinthians 6:11-13, The Message

Where are your heart and soul calling you? ❤️

Autumn Aspirations 🍁

Autumn is a very special time to make space around and in the heart. Step out of your tension, out of your fear. Laugh. Lighten up. Loosen up. Change your energy. Relax until you find the flow. ❤️

✨Love ~ Serve ~ Inspire✨

Autumn is referred to as a Vata (air) season, which means the presence of air and space (Ether) is more noticeable in and around us. You may feel more light, carefree, creative, or even spacey and scattered. We harmonize this by learning to go with the flow more — physically, emotionally, and spiritually. As we practice letting things come and go, it is a particularly good time to remind ourselves to breathe deeply. The heart and lungs are a focus of this season, and the breath flowing through helps make space for the release of whatever the heart is holding to tightly, or resisting. Autumn is a very special time to make space around and in the heart. Step out of your tension, out of your fear. Laugh. Lighten up. Loosen up. Change your energy. Relax until you find the flow. Relax until you find your rhythm, until you feel…

Cutting Cords ✄

“By cutting the cords that no longer need to be there, you are setting yourself and others free from the ties that bind.” 🙏🏻

✨Love ~ Serve ~ Inspire✨

In every relationship, people are constantly exchanging energy that can become a cord connecting two people. This energetic cord forms just below the breastbone and can remain long after a relationship has ended. This unbroken cord may leave an open channel between you and another person, through which emotions and energy can continue to flow. If you are unaware that the cord exists, it is easy to feel the other person’s emotions and mistakenly think that they are yours. Besides the fact that this can limit the amount of closure you can experience in a relationship, letting this cord remain intact can leave you with a continued sense of sadness while creating feelings of lethargy as your own energy is sapped from you. Cutting the cord can help you separate yourself from old baggage, unnecessary attachments, and release you from connections that are no longer serving you.
