The Cosmos and You

Hello friends, I have missed you! It has been very, very busy (have I said very yet?) here at the Positive Possibilities Headquarters. My production team and I have gone into overdrive as never before to meet a number of golden opportunities. The stars are aligned. Between music production to bring you my next album, costume construction for a new line of yoga wear, video production to share two new YEM DVDs, website development, and major rebranding, all to meet an opportunity for greater exposure of MAPS: the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary, I have simply not spared a moment to post a blog. But now there is more material than ever to whet your appetite. Since my last blog post: The September issue of Parvati Magazine, on the theme of “Unite”, is now live. Check it out for an exclusive interview with Marianne Williamson, review of Disney’s “Finding Dory”, and much more. For the first time this month, we produced a Chinese edition of Parvati Magazine! You can read the flipbook, translated into Simplified Chinese, at parvatimagazine.com. Please share it with any friends who you think would enjoy it! I have made a number of updates to my website. You will see a new look and feel for some of my work. I will share more…

The Multi-Dimensional Creative Process

I hope that you are doing well and happily enjoying life. I am in production mode to complete new music for two upcoming EPs (short albums), working on a new literary project, and developing the concepts for several upcoming music videos and a new YEM: Yoga as Energy Medicine DVD. With grace, the place of rich emptiness that my daily meditation practice cultivates is the fuel that keeps me effervescent and moving joyfully and effectively through these many tasks. The week has seen wonderful traction in the realization of MAPS: the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary, as the mailing list for the not-for-profit Parvati.org and MAPS petition signatures soared by 40-60% respectively – just in the past week! Deep thank yous to the selfless group of volunteers around me with whom I have the honour to work, and to all those who support this essential cause by signing and sharing our petitions at http://parvati.org/arctic-ocean/. If you have yet to do so, please do! From last week’s Art as Soul Food post, I continue to share with you now about the power of art and the multidimensional creative process. THE ROLE OF THE ARTIST We are spiritual, infinite beings in a temporal body with a temporal personality returning back to the infinite. Our soul is a reflection of…

Celebrating Universal Motherhood

The essence of motherhood is not restricted to women who have given birth; it is a principle inherent in both women and men. It is an attitude of the mind. It is love — and that love is the very breath of life. No one would say, ‘I will breathe only when I am with my family and friends; I won’t breathe in front of my enemies.’ Similarly, for those in whom motherhood has awakened, love and compassion towards everyone is as much part of their being as breathing. – Amma, “The Awakening of Universal Motherhood” Happy Mother’s Day! I am so happy to be spending this weekend in my backyard, planting trees and shrubs and flowers. In the midst of changing weather patterns, and rampant forest fires in the western part of Canada (I send love and prayers for all those affected by this tragedy), it feels timely to be connecting with the ground while giving back to Mother Earth on this weekend that celebrates motherhood! Every time this year, I contemplate the meaning of the Divine Mother and the way we are all children of the same mother – our beautiful planet Earth. I have opted not to have children in this lifetime. Thanks to the creative force that moves through me to birth…

Finding Light in the Dark

Hello! Happy May! We welcome this new month by celebrating with the new issue of Parvati Magazine, now live, on the theme of Nurturing. Please check it out and enjoy these articles written and curated for you with love and mindfulness to support you living a most fulfilled life. My radio single and its accompanying music video “I Am Light” continues to be seen and heard all over the world. To help the song chart so it can gain even more radio play, and so I have more opportunities to raise the awareness of the importance of realizing MAPS: the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary, please make sure you buy your copy of my song “I Am Light” on iTunes, if you have not already. Every radio and television interview I get, I am vocal about the speed with which the polar ice is melting and the effect it is having on people and animals all over the world. MAPS is the focused effort by my not for profit Parvati.org, and all the amazing people who volunteer for it. Whether you use an iPhone or an Android, please note that your reviews of the song “I Am Light” make a really big difference to others who may consider purchasing it. Please take a moment and share your…

Yoga’s Stillness Within Sound

I AM LIGHT CONTINUES TO SHINE Thank you for your continued support in the launch of “I Am Light”. Today I noticed that video plays are at 25,000 views after only a few weeks of being on Youtube. This makes me very pleased. I felt such love and joy move through me when making this song and music video. I am delighted to know the light there within is moving others worldwide. A reminder that “I Am Light” is on iTunes and Google Play. Each download supports the song charting, which shares more light, and give me an opportunity to help realize MAPS: the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary. If you already own a copy – big thank yous! Make sure you rate and review the track so that those who have not heard of it will feel drawn to check it out. THE REIGNING PRINCE Lots of action this week for “I Am Light”, as Rishi (C.E.O. of my label Kupid’s Play) was in Los Angeles meeting with radio and record executives to promote the song and other music I have on the way. Sadly, while on his return home, we learned that Prince had suddenly died. I immediately thought of how he was just here to do a show in Toronto, only a couple of…

“I Am Light”: Award-Winning Canadian Musician Parvati Releases Light In A Dark Time

Award-winning, chart-topping Canadian musician Parvati releases her new celestial pop music video “I Am Light”, having already secured a video premiere to over five million viewers on Vietnam’s YAN TV and radio play to millions of listeners on 26 FM radio stations across Asia and Australia. Radio music programmers across Asia are adding “I Am Light” to rotation regularly. “I Am Light” sparkles with the timeless purity of a flawless diamond. It is effervescent, playful and resonant with the frequency of joy, providing refreshing soft beauty amidst the cacophony of our current era. Parvati extends a heart-felt invitation through “I Am Light” into a world of positive possibilities, where we remember the light of our own true nature. The “I Am Light” music video marks the arrival of Natamba, a beautiful intergalactic being of liquid gold who brings light to Earth. She arrives on Earth and places the light in a forest tree. As Natamba transforms the dark forest into a world of multicoloured light, intrigued mystical forest fairies emerge from hiding to dance in delight. Simultaneously, the toy tree in a child’s room spontaneously illuminates. With an open heart, this child passes on the light to a stranger who shares it in turn. The light spreads from one person to the next through the city…

SHINING OUT AND STEPPING LIGHT

Hello! It has been a huge week here for both the music and the not-for-profit Parvati.org. I have lots of wonderful updates for you, so please read on to share in the ever expanding effervescence and find out how you can light up the world. A loving reminder: Have you bought your copy of I Am Light yet? You can buy it on iTunes through the link in the sidebar on this page so that Kupid’s Play, my own record label, actually gets a slightly bigger cut of the sale. You can also gift the track to friends! Let’s spread the light globally. FANNING RADIO SPARKS INTO GLOBAL LIGHT First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who has been so supportive as my song “I Am Light” has had its first major radio airplay on top 40 radio. None of the traction is possible without you. You are the very energy that makes its luminous engine move. Namaste and pranams! As you may know, my song “I Am Light” aired across Asia to millions in 25 cities, beginning Friday in Phuket, Thailand. I had goosebumps listening to the song and interview with DJ Dom Lau (think Ryan Seacrest of Asia), coming right after Coldplay’s latest hit “Adventure of a Lifetime”. I was left absolutely immobilized…

It’s Time to Catch the Light!

It is now spring and the light has returned! How perfect that this Tuesday is also the official worldwide release of “I Am Light”, my new single and first ever music video – on iTunes, Google Play and Youtube. Woot! Woot! (Picture me singing and dancing). I will be courageously upfront and ask you from the bottom of my heart to please support the luminosity within this track by picking up your copy to give yourself the gift of light in your playlist. Then keep spreading the word. (A link will be active here on March 22, 2016. Please check in on Tuesday!) The more copies of “I Am Light” are bought, the higher it moves in the music charts, the greater chances it has of being played on commercial radio, the more people will hear it, the greater light it shines. Together, we illuminate the world! In case you didn’t know, it is super easy to gift songs on iTunes to others from your computer. Here is how: Open iTunes or iBooks. If you’re not already, sign in with your Apple ID and password. Find the item that you want to gift. To the right of the item’s price, click the arrow. From the menu, choose Gift This [item type].

The Best of 2015 at Parvati.TV

Hello friends, As I post, many of the holiday activities have subsided, though in the traditional calendar we are actually just part way through the Twelve Days of Christmas. New Year’s Eve is coming up, which also happens to be my birthday. (Yes, I was escorted into the world by a doctor wearing a tuxedo, called away from his New Year’s Eve celebrations!) I hope you are continuing to enjoy the light and love of this time of year, whether you are spending time on your own or connecting with friends and family. Mostly, I hope that you feel connected to celebrating the birth of the Divine that takes place in every moment. May this be the foundation for a truly inspired 2016 for you. As I look back, I see that 2015 has flown by. I guess the saying is true: “time flies when you are having fun.” It has been a big and very full year for me. My musical world has been rich with expression. We wrapped up the multilingual versions of Yoga In the Nightclub music video; I composed a new radio single “I Am Light” and co-directed its deliciously fun music video – then, as interest built in its release, I started work on an EP to accompany the single! We…

Confessions of a Yoga Junkie Editor

Hello friends, Big news this week! Parvati.org’s Director of Strategic Initiatives, Darcy Belanger, is in Paris at the UN Climate Conference, COP21! He brings with him the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary Treaty to be signed by world leaders. When 99 countries sign on to the treaty, MAPS will take effect, protecting the Arctic Ocean and the magnificent whales and all the marine life that call it home from exploitation and attack. Since we mailed out copies of the MAPS treaty to all heads of government last week, we already have received acknowledgement from Ireland, New Zealand, Portugal and Israel! While we continue to support Darcy from this side of the ocean through meetings, social media and outreach, we are also tending to other creative tasks. I have heard your many repeated requests: “when is your Confessions book going to be available for purchase?!” I am now back to working with my fabulous editor Pranada and marketing director Rishi, to publish my book Confessions of a Former Yoga Junkie: A Revolutionary Life Makeover for the Sincere Spiritual Seeker in 2016. This means a photoshoot for the cover image, some final edit tweaks, and building out its launch plan. And fitting it all in as we gear up for the release of my first radio single and music…

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.

earth heart open sky for ptv3 all red-05

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.
