The Key To New Year’s Resolutions That Work

Happy New Year and hello 2017! May this year be rooted, vital and expansive in immense joy for you. Thank you for choosing to begin it, in part, here with me. I look forward to sharing more on this blog together as we move through these coming months, in continued support of your most naturally magnificent self. Many of you want to make lasting changes in your lives. As New Year’s Day comes around, you may feel excited about the fresh possibilities it brings. With a wish for better times ahead, you write a list of the ways this year will be different. What are your New Year’s resolutions? My resolve this year is for the immediate success of the #unitebylight fundraising campaign so that we can mobilize the exceptional plan we have to realize MAPS: the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary by the end of 2018. If you have not yet, please join me in #unitebylight. It is fun, easy and adds so much to the world! All details are at parvati.org. How did your last year’s resolutions go? Do you find that, as life’s challenges return after the holidays, you feel stumped by things you had hoped would be different? Despite your best efforts, it may seem that New Year’s resolutions just don’t work out.…

The Birth of Light In Your Life

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, happy Kwanzaa and happy Sunday! May this day be full of beautiful things for you! The winter solstice has just passed. We are now moving into longer days, which to me is a welcome relief. As one who loves to jump around on stage singing “I am a flower”, I have an affinity with warmer weather and lots of sunlight! It has been wonderful in this season of light to see all the #unitebylight videos continue to come in from all parts of the world, most recently including Thailand, UK and The Gambia. The light worldwide is growing. At the same time, we learned this week that Canada and the US have said they are stopping offshore oil and gas in the Arctic! It is great news showing how your efforts in emails, letters, phone calls, videos, etc. have an effect. So keep shining! If you have not already joined #unitebylight, it is easy to do. Click here for all the info you need. At this time of year, Jewish people celebrate the miracle of light through the eight days of Hanukkah, a festival also known as The Festival of Lights. Hanukkah commemorates the Maccabean Revolt and reclaiming of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, which under the rule of Roman Emperor Antiochus…

Your Power to Choose the Light

Namaste, As soft snow falls outside my window, festive lighting dresses a greater number of homes, buildings and evergreens around the world. The seasonal decorations bring colour and cheer to the darker days. With the sun further from the Earth and the days now short, December is traditionally a time where we focus on light. Inspired by this luminous theme, we at Parvati.org have launched our #unitebylight campaign. Thank you to all those who have created wonderful videos for the cause! You have boosted the message of light and peace across the world! Here are some of the videos we have received so far. You can create a video of your own and shine light into the world, right now, for the #unitebylight campaign. There is no need to wait to be nominated. It is easy! Here is how: Sign the petition and optionally make a donation Create a short video of yourself lighting a peace candle, while nominating at least three friends who will do the same and spread the word Share your video on social media with the hashtags #unitebylight and #signMAPS – making sure you choose the “public” setting, so it can be seen by all “My name is [name] from [country]. I’ve signed the MAPS petition and made a donation to Parvati.org.…

Choose Peace in the Season of Light

Namaste, Holiday trees and seasonal decorations are going up, as we move into the season of light. I love the rich light imagery that many spiritual traditions offer in the dark mid-winter. With Nature being at its most introverted point of the year, we can also experience an important energetic shift when we tune in and listen. In each moment, we are offered ways to remember our interconnection as eternal beings of light. Since returning from a powerfully grace-filled retreat with Amma in Detroit, I have been immersed in a creativity, completing another book in the nine part Aonani of Avalon young adult series. A bit Harry Potter meets Dune, Aonani of Avalon is about a gifted young girl from the luminous natural realm of Avalon. Before the alien Xennat race arrived, Avalon’s light was part of Earth. Guided by Natamba of the Golden Star, a being from the Novem Light Body that protects the universe, Aonani discovers that she is a bridgewalker destined to find the truth that can reunite Avalon with planet Earth. I can’t wait to share the first release with you in 2017! While the writing juices have been flowing, I have also been working to complete a book on YEM: Yoga as Energy Medicine, the yoga that I have developed and…

Peace in a Polarized World

I don’t follow daily news that closely. But I get a snapshot of world politics from the things I experience as I move through each day: captions in newspapers and on magazine stands, conversations on Facebook, clips on the radio or on YouTube, and through the atmospheric vibration I touch in my daily meditation practice. I am aware of the recent election results in the United States. I know that there have been clouds of dissention in the ethers for some time. I can see them in the media and sense them in the unseen. Over the past decade, our world has been struggling with increased local and global unrest as well as greater natural disasters. At this point in my life, I don’t feel a call to follow politics. Not because I am busy and don’t care – quite the opposite. I care deeply. I am simply unconvinced that the answers to the problems we as a human race repeatedly face will be solved by following daily news too closely. I know, as I am sure you do you too, that in every moment, all over the world, people are violently attacked, raped and brutally murdered in wars between nations and disputes between people. There are millions who are in pain right now from profound…

The Yoga of Voting

Namaste, This week sees two major dates: first, the US election on Tuesday, and then Remembrance Day on Friday. Taken together, these two are sobering calls to consider the world we live in and how we are contributing to unrest or to peace. Beyond any political question with the potential to enable agitated minds and divisive thinking, I am most interested in the essential questions of what each one of us is doing to wake up from the illusion of disconnection. Once we understand that all impossibilities are literally not real, we cannot help but welcome the personal transformation of inner peace that will ultimately halt our global crisis and lead to world peace. The US election has seemed particularly volatile this year. Though I am Canadian, I have always felt like a citizen of the world. I see politics more from a spiritual perspective, taking into account our inherent interconnection, even when we are voting for something local. I make no pronunciation as to how another nation’s citizens should vote. My advice is simply to consider the yoga of voting. The art and science of yoga reaches far beyond the impressions most people have of it being a series of bendy, physical exercises. Yoga is a systematic body of knowledge and practice that teaches integrated…

Unmask Your True Self

Hello! Happy and light-filled Diwali to those who celebrate it! May your year to come be blessed with peace and prosperity! COP22, this year’s UN Climate Conference, is coming up in Marrakech, Monaco. My dear friend Darcy Belanger, the Executive Director of Parvati.org, is volunteering his time to attend as a delegate on behalf of Parvati.org, to gain support for the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary. If you can, please support his travel and accommodations to do this work. Visit his GoFundMe page and share with your friends. Thank you! This week also marks Halloween. Originally, the night before the Christian festival All Souls Day, it commemorated souls that had departed. Today Halloween has become a time of pumpkins, candy and costumes. For many, it is an opportunity to try on a different look or personality, leaving the everyday self our friends and colleagues recognize to explore new personae. I love designing different characters and costumes for my shows that share creative possibilities year-round. Yet, this time of costumes brings to mind a tendency we all have to some extent or another. Sometimes the masquerade is not about what we put on at Halloween, but the masks we may not realize we wear all year. Without realizing it, we may be attached to ideas of who we…

Gratitude for Everything, Even Illness

Hello! I am back in my studio in Toronto after a tremendous journey to Europe meeting luminaries from the business and arts communities in support of the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary (MAPS). It has been inspiring to see the momentum building and the essential connections we have made. MAPS becomes a reality when each one of us speaks up in one voice to create a global movement. If you have not yet signed the petition for MAPS, please do so at http://parvati.org/arctic-ocean. When I got home, I went to my altar and thanked the universe for the grace of my safe return. Cherishing these seemingly small things gives great meaning to my life. Through my experience of healing from a paralyzing spinal injury, I have been tangibly shown just how dependent we are on grace for every action we perform. We are truly not the doers. We live as an integral, interdependent part within an interconnected and infinitely compassionate universe. Everything in this moment arises by grace. It may seem easy to lose sight of this reality, especially when this moment brings things we don’t like. For example, during my trip, I caught the flu and was at business meetings reminding myself to also remain in healing presence. It might have been tempting to see illness…

Following the Call of Your Soul

Hello from London! It is wonderful to be back in Europe again. Rishi and I are here for business meetings to support the realization of MAPS: the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary. I came to London directly from Toronto. But Rishi came via Singapore, where he attended the All That Matters music, sports and marketing trade show and made some amazing connections. While we work hard to connect by email, phone and social media, and so does our dedicated team of volunteers, there is just no substitute for in person presence and connection. What we see over and over again, when we share our heart and passion for MAPS, is that people are immediately touched. Executives well up with tears. And well-networked business leaders help us make the appropriate connections to see MAPS realized by the end of 2017. Meetings run long because no one wants to leave the moment of heart connection. That does not mean that everything is an easy waltz from one connection to the next. We are working flat out, stretching our limits as never before. The intensity of crowds, travel, packed schedules and needing to be “on” no matter what, is a challenge to physical endurance. Yet, our minds and hearts are unwavering. We will not go home until we have secured…

Non-Attachment and Preferences

Happy Equinox! Some students and clients have asked me in the past about the nature of vairagya (non-attachment). Does it mean that you don’t care how things are? Does it mean that you aren’t supposed to prefer one thing to another? In an ultimate state, a fully realized state, there is no difference and nothing to prefer. In a state of spiritual bliss, Amma once ate glass, used tea leaves and dog droppings, seeing no difference between these and delicious food. I don’t know about you, but I am not there yet! I still do see a difference between eating glass and eating a wholesome, fresh, organic meal. On the journey towards enlightenment, it is important to understand the difference between non-attachment and preference. We can practice non-attachment and still acknowledge our preferences, as long as we understand that our preferences are still attached to the temporal and not rooted in the infinite. It may be tempting to use the idea of non-attachment to disconnect from the moment and deny our preferences, instead of learning to be present to witnessing our likes and dislikes. One of my clients put up with a destructive situation for years because she felt she was practicing non-attachment, without seeing that she was actually disconnecting from her own heart and soul directive…

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.

earth heart open sky for ptv3 all red-05

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.
