What You See Is What You Get. What Are You Choosing to See?

Last week, we were looking at the amazing gift of co-creation. I recently had an experience that reminded me how essential it is that we understand this innate human power—as well as how our perceptions affect it. I was conversing with a group of friends who are all committed to personal and spiritual growth and the protection of Nature. Yet, the discussion became tense around the topic of co-creation, particularly when someone brought up working with a realized master. Another person in the group did not see how following the direction of a spiritual master could be co-creative. To him, it seemed militant, as though the master was issuing orders for others to obey. Yet, from my experience, the spiritual master we were speaking about was anything but a dictator. The idea was so dissonant with my core that I said the metaphor felt like calling a flower an oppressive leader. Struck by the disparity in perceptions, I was reminded how what we perceive is always coloured by our personalities and experiences. Because of this, our differing perceptions influence our ability to co-create. From a spiritual perspective, our perceptions are limited by our attachments to our past and our projections into the future. The way each person responds to a situation is unique. No two siblings,…

The Gift of Co-Creation

There is a famous and often-repeated quote: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” These words, sometimes mistakenly attributed to Nelson Mandela, are in fact those of Marianne Williamson, in her book A Return to Love. She touches on an important truth of our human existence: we are far more capable than we realize. One of the ways we are most capable, often without realizing it, is in co-creation. This is a gift, allowing us to act in interconnection with all that is. We are born into co-creation. We live through it. Yet rarely do we become conscious of it and the extraordinary opportunity it provides our growth at all levels. Along the path of personal development, we come into understanding of this essential gift and how we are using it in every moment. In so doing, we gain sight of a powerful guiding star on our way to limitless joy and unconditional love, which are our true nature. We become of greater benefit to each other and to the world around us. We can be instruments of grace. Co-creation means different things, depending on our perspective. At the most practical level, co-creation is the bringing together of two energy systems in order to…

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…

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 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 season,…

Welcome to the Season of Light

This is the season of light. Spiritual traditions worldwide celebrate light at this time of year in various ways. Hindus recently celebrated Diwali, which symbolizes the victory of light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance. Today marks the beginning of Advent, in the Christian calendar, and Hanukkah, in the Jewish calendar. Having been raised in a Christian home and served as a lay-assistant minister in the United Church, and being married to a beautiful Jewish man, both of these holiday seasons are close to my heart. Tonight I light the menorah with my husband for the first of eight days of Hanukkah, a festival also known as The Festival of Lights. Thanks to my Sunday school early days, I knew that Hanukkah was a celebration of the miracle of light, when temple lamps stayed lit all night, despite not having enough oil. But now that I have married into the tribe, and being a lover of history, I did some research on Hanukkah’s history. I discovered that Hanukkah commemorates the Maccabean Revolt and reclaiming of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, which under the rule of Roman Emperor Antiochus IV (2nd century BCE), Jews were forbidden to attend. When the victorious Maccabees found a small jug of uncontaminated oil in the temple, only enough to light the…

Replace Violence With Value and Discover the Power of the Feminine

Last week, thanks to my friend Emma Farr Rawlings and her book “The Divine Child”, we explored the wisdom of children, and what they have to teach us. (Have you downloaded your free copy of her book yet?) The innocence of children reminds us that when we are humble and open, we can tap into the love that is right here and now. A child also knows the importance of his or her mother. He will want to protect her, take care of her. This reminds us of the need to care for our shared mother, the planet Earth, with the same love as that of a child; and to respect all women for their ability to give life, when in gracious harmony with man. Today, November 25, is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. Staggeringly, women all over the world continue to face violence and harassment in many forms. Days marked for remembrance help us take pause and consider the value of the women in our lives and give thanks. In so doing, hopefully, we become more aware of the important role they play in society through our understanding of health, nature, spirituality and culture as a whole. Yet globally, about one in three women will be beaten, raped or otherwise…

How to Connect with the Wisdom of a Child

In honour of the United Nations Universal Children’s Day, I asked my beautiful friend Dr. Emma Farr Rawlings if she would be willing to share some of the amazing findings she has been unveiling in her inspired work with children. Emma’s book The Divine Child is a luminous and heart-filled exploration of the wisdom inherent in children and how we can learn from them. It is so gracious of her to offer you a free copy! To get your copy, follow these simple steps: Please go to www.thedivinechild.org. Click FREE in the navigation at the top. Enter the password freebook and click Go. Click the “Free eBook — Click Here” graphic in the center of the following page for your own PDF copy. I often say that most disputes would be resolved if we could only remember the wisdom of kindergarten logic – if I break your toy, I fix it; if you break mine, you fix it. In a world of ego strutting, lawsuits and elbowing to get ahead, we can easily forget the simplicity of our interconnection and common-sense ethical values that make the world a happier place. No matter how acclaimed, influential, educated or socially prominent we may be, we have not yet graduated from kindergarten if we don’t possess basic kindness and respect. We each are…

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.
