How to Reconnect With Joy When You Feel Stressed

Thank you for letting me know that you liked last week’s post about finding joy in your to-do list. In answer to a question I received, “How do I find joy when my work is stressing me out?”, here are some tips about facing stress with a meditative mindset. It was published on Thrive Global. Getting into this frame of mind is something I practice every day as I face the intensive timelines to realize MAPS, the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary. Every second, I feel like I can hear the sound of ice melting. It is certainly not waiting for the world to wake up to this ecological and humanitarian crisis. So I am giving MAPS my all with a “pedal to the metal” attitude and a meditative heart. I hope this serves you! We can access the beauty and power of meditation when we are busily moving through our lives by developing what I call a meditative mindset. This means that no matter how busy our body may be, our mind rests in the essence of meditation. We cultivate a deeper and broader vantage point about who we are and what we are doing. When we step into a meditative mindset when faced with a busy life, we gain a different point of view about…

Find Joy Even in The Busiest To-Do List

Hello! Last week I mentioned I was working on a blog on co-creation. I have a lot to say about the topic, so the piece is evolving into a mini-series. Fittingly in this busy time of my life, my article about finding joy in your to-do list was just published on Arianna Huffington’s platform, Thrive Global. I share it with you here: I am now putting the finishing touches on five albums and fourteen books. And that is only the beginning. Live shows, animes, VR, and more… all in service to the swift realization of the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary (MAPS), to protect all life. Since much of my life has been balancing tight deadlines and a passionate vision, I would like to share my experience on how to find joy even in a packed to-do list. We may perceive tasks to do as objects outside ourselves to be conquered and cleared so that we may eventually find freedom and ease. We can lose sight of gratitude for the grace this moment brings, and succumb to feeling that life is happening to us. Ancient yogis and enlightened masters speak of the shimmering veil of illusions, called Maya in Sanskrit, that makes up our phenomenal world. We think that objects, including our thoughts and perceptions, are solid…

Discover the Joy of the Divine Waiting for You Right Now

Last Sunday, my blog was silent as I have been working on a new juicy post for you on the topic of co-creation, but it was not yet done. Trusting the creative muse and with the grace of the angels, it will be ready to share with you next week. While completing my music arrangements in my upcoming albums, I have also been putting the finishing touches this week on a new website for Parvati Magazine. In support of MAPS, the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary, Parvati Magazine is lovingly brought to you every month by a super beautifully broad-hearted all-volunteer team, dedicated to a healthy world. The new website looks great, designed by a dear friend at Jellyfunk. To give you a taste of this issue, here is my Positive Possibilities Living article. And there is lots more to enjoy in this month’s Parvati Magazine, including Grammy nominees, leaders like Amnesty International and the newest Yogis Unite ambassador Koya Webb. The divine is always with us, no matter where we are or what we may be doing. The divine continually showers us with grace-filled flower petals. The question is, are we open? Are we listening for the phone call from the divine? I was in my music studio working on one of five upcoming albums dedicated…

How to Learn from Nature’s Biggest Yoga Teachers

I love this amazing and profound quote by my spiritual teacher Amma, Sri Mata Amritanandamayi: “Pure music is as big as space. It is God. It is pure knowledge. It is the secret of allowing the pure sound of the universe to flow through you.” As you read this, I am in my music studio, where I am listening to the muse to put the complete new music in service to MAPS, the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary. While I create with love for nature, humanity and the magnificent sonic whales, please enjoy these past sharings about the beautiful yogic teachings of whales.   Spiritual Lessons from the Whales 1: Let Your Darkness Feed Your Light The more I learn of whales, the more I am awed by their massive, compassionate and wise presence. They seem to me to be master yogis, in constant co-creation with and in service to the whole. This week, I would like to share how whales can serve as an example in your yoga practice.   Spiritual Lessons from the Whales 2: Supreme Karma Yoga When I look at the lives of whales, I see an effortless, natural mastery of karma yoga. Their existence serves the greater good from the moment they emerge into the world to the moment of death and…

Find Out What Parvati Magazine Readers Love

Okay… confession time. I feel a million miles away! When I go deep into creative mode it is like I have gone into another world. When I speak I am not sure if words will come out, or fully orchestrated sounds! While I listen intimately to the muse to wrap up the creative content (yes, five albums, eight books and two DVDs) in service to the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary, please enjoy 2018’s favourite articles from Parvati Magazine, lovingly produced every month by volunteers just for you. The Yes Brain What if children’s brains could be helped to become receptive and curious instead of anxious and reactive? Psychiatrist Dr. Daniel J. Siegel and psychotherapist Tina Payne Bryson explore this idea in their book “The Yes Brain”. We interviewed Dr. Siegel about cultivating the Yes Brain in both parents and children. How to Transform Your Life While Healing the World Science now proves what yogis have known for millennia: when you redirect your energy to giving rather than getting, to serving rather than wanting, your entire biochemistry changes and begins to vibrate at a higher rate. You feel more connected and fulfilled in ways never imagined. A richness begins to grow deep within that banishes unhappiness, gives health and provides a sense of fulfillment. How Kino MacGregor…

Your Favourite Parts of Life in the Positive Possibilities

I was curious over the Christmas holidays to find out which were my most loved blog posts in 2018. In the process, I was happy to discover that several of my posts from years ago are still being enjoyed. You’ll be happy to know that I dive deeply into their topics in my upcoming books The Grace Mindset, The Oneness Reality and The Three Supreme Secrets for Lasting Happiness. I am now putting the finishing touches on these books—plus five more. (Yes! I have been very busy!) They are dedicated to MAPS, the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary. They help create the necessary shift in the way we see ourselves, others and our planet for a peaceful world. Here is the Top Ten list – in order of popularity – to whet your appetite for these books, which I can’t wait to share with you!   Healing Pain Through Love and Acceptance: Loving Myself And The World Beyond Condition The choices you make right now, based on how you choose to perceive this moment, are literally creating your future…   What to Do During An Eclipse An eclipse provides an optimal time for spiritual progress and selfless service. During the dimming light, your attachment to your ego is dulled, allowing you to access the light of pure…

What is the Secret to Make Lasting Change?

What are your hopes and dreams for 2019? Do you have big plans, small aspirations, the desire for status quo? What makes your heart skip a beat and how are you pursuing that in your life? The New Year brings with it possibilities for a fresh start. As such, we often make resolutions for the year ahead. I have shared in the past how to make New Year’s resolutions that last. And if you have not already, check out my guided meditation about how to make a resolve for your life in this month’s Parvati Magazine. But how do we really make changes? Ultimately, whether we want to change ourselves or the world, we need to start with peaceful presence. Why? Even though we may say we want change, many of us are actually deeply afraid of it. Though we may outwardly express a hope for something new, inwardly we may be in resistance. Holding on to old patterns in our hearts, minds and actions, we find ourselves too often in the same situations over and over again, without the transformation we had anticipated. We may blame circumstance, others, even the divine, for the events in our life. Or we may blame ourselves, getting stuck in self-criticism instead of opening to solutions. Try and try as…

Welcome the Birth of Light in Your Life

For those who celebrate, Merry Christmas! May the holidays this week bring you joy and richness. For Christians, today is the lighting of the last of the four Advent candles—hope, peace, joy and love—as the season moves to its culmination with Christmas. I love the idea that even as days grow dim, light has been increasing, just waiting for us to celebrate it. We are here, on this planet, amidst the beauty and imperfections of it all. We each carry inner light that both shines and casts shadows on the ground. As the one who was born in a manger shows us, when we are willing to live with the innocence of a child and open in purity to the moment, we enter the realm of the Divine. This Christmas, no matter what tradition you do or do not embrace, welcome the birth of light in your life. Revere this moment with freshness, rather than with anticipation or expectation. Soften to the now, rather than hardening to it. Become as receptive as a child to the newness and wonder of what is. Sense the interconnections between yourself and all things. Consider that heavenly light is the very same light that exists within you and shines through all. With innocence, purity and humility, we meet the child…

Tune In to the Power of the Solstice

Hello! As the season shifts from fall to winter, I feel that I too am changing. I have been busy in my role of director for Parvati.org, as we volunteers continue to spread the word for MAPS all over the world–most recently thanks to my dear friends Vandana and Darcy at COP24, the UN Climate Change Conference in Poland. I have also been editing eight inspiring full-length books that I have been writing, dedicated to MAPS, from self-help to fiction. I really look forward to sharing them! Now, I am about to dive deeply into the world of sound to wrap up the five albums I have written and produced for MAPS over the next month. Before I immerse myself in my music studio, I wanted to make sure you saw this guided meditation from this month’s Parvati Magazine. The beautifully transformative energy held expressed by the winter solstice occurs this week, so please give yourself the gift of being present for it. In the Northern Hemisphere, the winter solstice is a turning point as the sun reaches an all-time low. This is the longest night and shortest day of the year. While Nature is at its darkest and most introverted, we often find ourselves at our busiest. Despite the merrymaking and socializing of the holiday…

This is the Healing Our World Needs

My heart is full of gratitude as I think of how two of my Parvati.org friends and colleagues are now in Katowice, Poland moving MAPS (the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary) forward at COP24, the UN Climate Conference. All of us who serve MAPS do so as regular citizens, and as volunteers. We know the Arctic sea ice, our planet’s air conditioning system that ensures we have the food and water we all need to survive, is under threat as never before. Our wellbeing, and that of all life, can no longer be held hostage by political apathy. We must act now. Thankfully, my MAPS colleagues in Poland, General Counsel Vandana Ryder and Director of Strategic Initiatives Darcy Belanger, recently told me that they have had great meetings for MAPS. MAPS is a simple solution to the massive and unprecedented ecological and humanitarian crisis that affects everyone and all things. People everywhere are beginning to sense that something is wrong with our common home. We can feel the distress in Nature and in ourselves. Each one of us is a part of the Earth’s collective body, one whose health is suffering. And anyone who has experienced an awakening or a spiritual breakthrough through a serious illness knows that poor health is a call from Nature to shift…

WHY YOGA IN THE NIGHTCLUB

I am often asked what inspired me to bring yogic expression into the club scene. I answer easily. Yoga In the Nightclub is a natural expression of who I am as a musical artist and dedicated yogini. Yoga is not a physical practice but a way of life. It is about learning to be present in all one does, to see the divine here, now, in this moment. As such, yoga is everywhere. It is about feeling connected to something much greater than our limited ego or will. It is about being in service to life, feeling interconnected to that very life force. Yoga In The Nightclub is a celebration of life and a reminder that we can find awakened presence everywhere.

Yoga in the West is mostly known as a series of bendy physical exercises. Yet there is much more to it than fitness. Yoga’s systematic breath and body exercises, designed to clear the subtle channels in our energy system, prepare us for meditation, through which we may experience a life inspired by our interconnected, multidimensional true nature. Our body, that once was seen as “mine”, is no longer our identity, but a gift on loan from the divine. We care for it, but we are not attached to it. The practice of yoga offers us the opportunity to experience the transmutation of matter into pure light, embody the multidimensional and rest in the eternal.

WE ARE ALL CONNECTED

Hatha yoga, the physical practice of yoga, is just one of many aspects of yoga, which range from selfless service to astrology and prayer. The Sanskrit word “yoga” most simply translates to “union”, implying that the practice of any yoga will bring together our perceived sense of separateness. As a whole, yoga is an ancient science of life. It is a practical method of shedding excess and bringing us back from the self-delusion of separation from the divine so that we may realize our inherent interconnection to and ultimate oneness with it.

As we begin to understand that yoga is everywhere, we come to see how we are all connected in vast ways far beyond the limitations of our personal will and ego. What I do affects you, and vice versa. We are one earth family. At the heart of it all, we share the same heartbeat. Breathe to be. We are one.

AWAKENED LIVING

When we are open, life blossoms, just as a flower opens to welcome the morning sun.  We see that the sun, though it is millions of light years away, has a tender yet powerful relationship with the flower, as do the rain and the clouds. From this perspective we see that we are part of the whole. Life is a symphonic masterpiece with which, when we are open, we are completely resonant.

As we come to understand our oneness, we can revel in it with wonder and joy. We can consider in awe how immense it all is. We can let go of the idea that an illusory, isolated sense of self could possibly be in control, and open to an exquisite unfolding of life in absolute perfection. Our actions become not about “me” but about the whole. Each moment is integrated within the whole. No one decision is separate.

When we begin to see that each decision we make affects not just ourselves but everyone and everything on the planet, we act with more compassion. When we have more compassion, we realize the impact of our actions and we naturally want less and practice more kindness. As stewards of the Earth, we each are called to learn to live in harmony with ourselves, each other and our planet. We all breathe the same air and live on the same living organism, our planet. Varied in race and creed, we are all one family, children of the same mother, the planet Earth.

THE OPPORTUNITY FOR GRACE

In each moment, there is infinite grace. By becoming more conscious as we practice yoga on the mat, at work, at play or in the nightclub, we let go of the unnecessary and develop greater internal spaciousness which blooms throughout our lives. In this space new life and possibilities arise.

As we rest our awareness on the simple purity and grace of the breath, we realize - we are alive! We let go of wanting things from the future and the past and open to what is here and now. We feel as vast as the sky and rooted in the richness of this moment.

When we “breathe to be”, we understand our interconnection. We see that we are not the doers but a part of the whole, the same energy that is in the flowers and in the stars. We know that our essence is divine - from which we have come, to which we return.
