Did you know that just 5 minutes of serious meditation in the morning can guarantee its light will guide you through the day? Here is a weeks worth of mantras for you to take-away and do:

  • Every day in every way I am better and better.
  • I am love, I am light.
  • I am peace.
  • Be the change you wish to see in the world.
  • Change my thoughts, change my world.
  • May all beings be happy and free.
  • Divinity is my birth right.

Sit quietly in meditation, repeat one mantra for a few until you get lost in calm within. Breathe and release.

ALL THAT I GIVE IS GIVEN TO ME

Written by , Posted in Clarity, Inspiration, Self-Care, Yoga

Monday mantra today is simple, what your mama always told you- what you give is what you get.    
 All that I give is given to me. When I do more yoga I feel good all around- mind, body, soul. When I meditate, I am more relaxed and I do not react, I just am. When I work out and sweat, I look and feel better. When I eat clean and balanced, I feel lighter and healthier. When I smile more, I get that energy back from the people around me, but multiplied. 

The opportunity is all around you to give, and be given. 

Happy Monday, love and light!

SUNINA x ALLY LOVE: 20 MINUTES OF BEAUTY

Written by , Posted in Beauty, Self-Care, Skin Glow

IMG_0040 IMG_0035 IMG_0037 IMG_0039

 

 

IMG_0041 Here is Part II of Ally Love and I’s beauty post; Part I can be found here. Ally know’s the importance of putting her mind and body at ease to achieve beauty seemingly effortlessly. She jets around New York on modeling shoots as a Wilhelmina model, is a Brooklyn Nets Host, and passionate devotee of all things wellness, so its no wonder she is also founder of ALLYLOVEBLOG.COM; It is all about empowering yourself and other women in the game, hence #LOVESQUAD – check it out!

I was so thrilled to have spent the day with her for all things beauty, we took our time to meditate (as seen on our last post), and to do a mini spa facial as well. We are both constantly on the go, so it is great to share with you a 20-minute self-care ritual that you can do for yourself at anytime. It’s about that glow on the go! Here’s what we did to achieve a quick glow while we were both on the go:

Step 1: Hello Kitty Narikiri Face Mask – these are so fun. I picked these up in Japan at a stopover in Narita Airport. It’s a super simple mask that contains water, soybean extracts, collagen, and other ingredients for brightening – perfect for a quick glow. Keep this on for just 15 Minutes.

Step 2: A nice mist after the mask to serve as a toner: Whamisa Olive Leaf Mist – This is one of my favorites to keep around with me at all times. I take them around the city with me and even spritz while teaching, after working out, or anytime i just need a little pick me up or glow in the skin.

Step 3J.One Hana Cream – These little capsules are just the right amount to give you full moisturizing coverage. It is a dramatic anti-aging cream. Use this after you pat your mist dry. Use gentle circular motions.

And, don’t forget your SPF if you are headed outside while the sun is still out! And you’re done!

xx love & light.

BEAUTY BENEFITS OF MEDITATION

Written by , Posted in Beauty, Happiness, Inner Purity, Inspiration, Mind, Self-Care, Skin Glow

IMG_0024

IMG_0032 IMG_0036

Ally Love (Ally Love Blog) and I had a spa session just in time for our birthdays! (Happy Birthday Ally!) We split it up into two parts: Mediation and Skincare. (The skincare post will be up on Friday). For included meditation into our beauty focused spa session because we know, love, and feel the importance of meditation for our healthy glow. Here is a curated list of what meditation means to us for beauty.

The Beauty Benefits of Meditation:

Slows Aging, as you meditate you bring energy (prana aka life) and fuller breaths into your body. It pumps more oxygen into the places that are tight and weak, it also brings a glow to your skin. You may notice after some time meditating that there is less tension in your face and you can really feel the difference when you are done. Breathing mindfully transforms the tissues and cells in your body. It brightens your complexion and makes you look and feel younger; working that natural glow from the inside out!

Builds Confidence, meditation keeps your mood even and calm, giving you an even keeled demeanor. It can instantly improve your mood and this builds your self-confidence as well. Meditation helps you get to know your true self, and when you know yourself you can only shine bright with confidence.

Healthier Choices, when you make mediation a habit you build your awareness muscle. As that muscle gets stronger you are more in the moment with everyday life which gives you the benefit of making better and healthier choices. It is when we are mindlessly moving through life that we make not so great choices that could effect our health. And, health is not only wealth-  but beauty as well.

INSTANTLY ELEVATE YOUR WORLD

Written by , Posted in Beauty, Clarity, Inner Purity, Mind

IMG_0018

IMG_0013

FullSizeRender

Heightening of your inner world will instantly elevate the reality of your outer world.

However, easier said than done, right? Especially if you have not yet built the awareness around what holds you back from elevating your world instantly. How aware are you of your emotions and how it could take control of you. For this post, we will call it ‘shadow’, ie. your dark side, the heavier side of your emotions. First we identify what the shadow is, the ‘thing’ that holds you back from elevating your world.

Shadow Main Ingredients:

  • Secrecy – not to reveal basic desires
  • Shame
  • Judgement
  • Blame
  • Projection
  • Separation
  • Enemies
  • Struggle – constant state of inner vs. outer warfare

The result of your shadow is war, struggle, and unnecessary drama.

The solution to uncreate the shadow by accepting your duality of light and dark. It is to be aware of your shadow and to acknowledge it. Instead of allowing shadow to take charge, we must take charge as creators of our own lives.

Duality is where you are, your split self is your most damaging illusion. In other words, when you identify your bad side and your good side you’re creating a separation instead of saying both your good and bad is OK, they are emotions that you can identify with. You are not ashamed of your shadow. It is also the knowing that if you did not have your shadow you would not be able to experience light.

You also have choices. Choose to accept your shadow, here are the choices:

1.  Stop Projecting. Be open to your shadow, here are projection examples and what it truly disguises:

  • Superiority disguises your own fear of rejection.
  • Arrogance disguises bottled up anger, beneath that is deep seated pain.
  • Defensiveness disguises the feeling that you are unworthy and weak.
  • Blame disguises the feeling that you are at fault and should be ashamed.
  • Idealizing others disguises the feeling that you are a weak helpless child that needs protecting, also feelings of inferiority.
  • Prejudice disguises the feeling that you are inferior and deserve to be rejected. 
  • Jealousy disguises your own impulse to stray, or a sense of sexual inadequacy.
  • Paranoia disguises deap seated anxiety.

Make peace with your projections. Here’s how: alertness, willingness, openness, honesty, courage. Feel the fear, and say “I see you, you belong to me.” Make peace with your feelings. Once you feel what you have, you can choose to push it down, attack it further, judge it. Or you can heal the unwanted feeling, face it, and acknowledge it. Hopefully you choose the latter. If you do not heal it, it will persist.

2. Detach: I can get through this, I won’t feel better unloading on someone else, acting out leads to regret and guilt, i can be patient lets see if i can cool down, moods come and go even the worst moods, I know how to center myself.

3. Give Up Self Judgement: Every emotion is valid in some way but when you add self-judgement, any emotion can be damaging. Grant sympathy for yourself, and be understanding of yourself. The inner judge dissolves when you are kind to yourself, and you sympathize with your self. Let your sympathy flow.

4. Rebuild Your Emotional Body: keeping your emotional body as healthy as we keep our physical body. When we are not feeling nourished emotional we feel fatigued, anxious. Emotional body should remain pleasing to experience.

Mantra: The lightness of being.

Tips to Build Your Emotional Body:

  • Becoming more whole
  • Learning to be resilient
  • Dispelling the demons of the past
  • Healing old wounds
  • Expecting the best and highest for yourself
  • Adopting realistic ideals.
  • Giving of yourself
  • Being generous especially with your spirit
  • Seeing through your fears
  • Learning self acceptance
  • Communicating with your higher self

Awareness and consciously choosing your thoughts in order to elevate your world instantly takes some not so instant work:) Keep going!

xx love and light.

3 SIMPLE WAYS HOW TO UPLIFT YOURSELF FROM A WINTER RUT

Written by , Posted in Clarity, Happiness, Inspiration, Mind

IMG_3139  

 It is February, right at the heart of winter in New York. Some winter months I tend to get a wave of unmotivated energy – any one else out there? It is the month that I have to pump up my self-care: pump up my meditation & yoga, work out efficiently (thank you SLT), pay special attention to how and what I eat, and take extra special care of my dry skin.

Here are 3 simple steps to unwinding out of your, dare I say, rut:

Come back to your center: meditate, do yoga, eat clean. Do lots of yoga positions that are uplifting the heart (upward facing dog). When you repeatedly remind yourself of your truth, and when you count all your blessings a rut is impossible.

Get your energy back: for extroverts, surrounding yourself with a lot of friends re-energizes you. For introverts, surrounding yourself with a few that you love is just enough, and mostly quiet time to recharge your energy is what you need.

Wake up earlier: when you are in a rut, you tend to wake later, start your day later, and it becomes a downward spiral of rushing through the day when you have things to do. Start your day earlier and have ample time for the things you want to accomplish for the day.

MANIFEST DESIRES – 3 OF 3

Written by , Posted in Yoga


Desire is the root of all human existence. It is the natural force of attraction that drives you in every moment.

In review, the first step in the manifestation of your desires is to define and call out your desires – allowing awareness. The second is to be detached from the outcome – live freely with an open mind and heart to the vast possibilities and roads that can be taken for your desires to be fulfilled.

And last, hence the final leg of this 3-part series on fulfilling your desires, is action. Sitting still, wishing, and praying are all great. But in order for the manifestations of your desires to become your reality, you must work towards it. I believe that you can work smart and direct energy only towards the activities that are balanced and satisfying to you. Because ultimately those activities that make you happy will naturally lead you in the direction of your desires.

I hope you enjoyed this 3-part series on manifesting your desires! We will put some meditation tools and techniques into action at the next YOGA GLOW event in NYC on Thursday, Decemeber 17th. Hope to see you there!

Xx love and light.

MANIFEST DESIRES – 2 OF 3

Written by , Posted in Attractive Energy, Clarity, Mind, You

IMG_1675

Processed with MOLDIV

Photo by DAVID TUFINO.

The Law of Detachment to me is the most important part of manifesting your desires. You completely let go of the attachment to the outcome or results of your desires.

You still keep your intention and desires in mind and heart but you let go of your clenching attachment to the outcome.

There are many reasons for this. One of which is that when you have tunnel vision with just one outcome you are missing the possible grander paths that was meant for you. Second, you may be missing out on opportunities that actually lead you to your desires because you are stuck on your ways. Your way is not the only way. And third, when you are attached it is basically a testament of your personal disbelief to your wishes coming true. When you are holding on tightly you are not trusting the divine process. And when you don’t believe in the reality of your desires, you don’t attract those desires.

You don’t give up your intention or your desire. But you do give up your attachment to the result. Attachment to them creates suffering. And why suffer? Unhealthy attachments to people, places, things, cause us to live in a constant state of false control and fear that we might lose the object of our desire.

Let go, just be, believe- and work for it! Don’t forget action is a major part of manifesting:) Don’t wait for anything, work for it and let it come to you.

xx love & light.

MY NUTRITION + PROTEIN FOR BEAUTY

Written by , Posted in Body, Sexy Tone, Strength

IMG_1371

IMG_1321 IMG_1370 IMG_1310 I have mentioned here and there some of the things I like to eat. I very rarely show what I eat, but when I do you know I love to eat foods for the skin – foods that enrich and enhance beauty. In this post I will share with you some of my essentials! I keep things very simple in my everyday life in all areas, so it is the same with my nutrition. I keep it simple!

Breakfast

I love to start my day with my favorite skin food: a super healthy and super purple (haha) acai bowl, granola, bananas! This is me on my fancier days. When I have time, I love to make myself Avocado toast.

I need to have my coffee. So coffee is my thing. Black.

Simpler mornings are oatmeal and tea, water with lemon & honey.

Lunch

When I am teaching, the easiest thing to do is grab a juice at Juice Generation and keep it by my side. A habit I’ve recently formed is grabbing my Muscle Milk Organic from the fridge and jetting out the door. It is gluten-free! I am always on the go so these protein shakes by muscle milk give me a boost of energy and the protein I know I lack. It is my solution for protein (and adding powder to my shakes) so that I can get enough intake. I am not much of a meat eater so I need to get my protein source else where. Protein is so essential for getting balance (if you are like me and drink a lot of greens) and for healthy hair, skin. There is a glow that I have when I feel balanced inside. When I look or feel dull I know my nutrition is off balance.

When I am not teaching I love to have lunch dates. Indulging in vegan and gluten free foods are fun because it is an eye opener on what options we have to make better choices. If not at a vegan/gluten free spot, I am happy with exploring menus. I am not picky, and I keep it simple. I like balance. I can’t eat just a salad, I love hearty healthy foods.

Dinner

Dinner to me is more about engaging in and interacting with the people you are with. I grew up with family dinners every night at 7pm and so I have kept the routine of enjoying not only the food, but the people you break bread with. Most nights it is with my husband. We eat in many ways the same, and in so many ways not the same but we’ve come to compromise on eating foods that meet in the middle. I love to include fish like salmon as much as I can. I’m sure many ladies understand the struggle of trying to be healthy when the man/woman in your life has a love for Oreos, pizza, and lots o’ rice! Ha! The struggle is real. But there is compromise and it is okay to eat the things you crave, in moderation. I love tacos, eat tacos! Keep your sanity and love your body. That is the most important thing here is to be aware of what you intake, find balance that works for you, and love your body!

Snacks

Because my schedule can be scattered and my new nutrition plan is to intake more (yes more, because my metabolism is so fast due to my lifestyle and would love to keep my curvy figure), I plan on consistently drinking my Muscle Milk Organic (which includes 20 grams of protein) and making protein shakes everyday- see one recipe below! I snack way more and always try to keep food around like bananas, protein bars, and this week it was a bag of pomegranate seeds! Yes pomegranate seeds. They are my favorite. And it is for sure a skin food – just like protein is! Did you know that protein provides structure to the hair, skin, nails, teeth? It supplies collagen, and the collagen creates suppleness to your skin. A good collagen supply provides elasticity which helps keep us young and vibrant looking.

Amazing shake recipe I recently started making:

Enjoy!

Click here to sign up!

I believe that the beauty of a woman is in the way that she carries herself. Supremly confident, but not superior. Shares her dynamic presence not by boasting, but by simply being. She takes the time to take care of herself, both in the mirror and in meditation. Outer self care is not frivolous, it is our divine duty to take care of our skin, our bodies, our essence. To be spiritual does not mean to suppress your goddess self. It means to uncover it, reveal it, embrace it. Take care of your inner self just as much as you do your outer self. Men, do not shy away as this is for you too! We are all emotional beings that can do so much more if we let go of the things that hold us heavy. Self-care is for everyone, and it is an expression of love for yourself.

Connecting with our inner selves is our divine duty. Feeling good is our divine duty. Glowing from the inside out is true beauty.

Once again, I am so excited and I cannot wait for the 12th. I hope to share my practice with you there!

Xx love and light.

BRAGGING VS. BEING

Written by , Posted in Beauty, Clarity, Inner Purity, Mind, Skin Glow

IMG_0163

Bragging vs. Being.

Bragging by definition is to ‘talk or write about oneself in a proud or self-impressed way; arrogant talk or manner. Bragging is a verbal kind of showing off.  (Humblebrags included!) We all know someone who does this, have done this, and at some point you may have been guilty of it too. This is a sign of ego getting in the way of truth. Truth does not need to brag. It is when we feel inadequate, insecure, or in need of attention.

Being. Simply being you, the true you that is happy when you are doing what you love is when you naturally shine bright. It is an energy that is so strong that anyone around you can feel it. Being you no matter how insecure it may make others feel is not bragging or showing off, it is simply being you. Playing down abilities, your opinions, your taste, or your talents because you are afraid of making others feel insecure is not of your concern. You are here to 100% be you and to express what you’ve been given to do your work here.

xx love & light

Beauty bonus – I literally always have this spray by my side – consistently since 2011! See in photo – the pink bottle:) My all-time favorite collagen mist, the bottle above is probably like my 27th bottle! It has surpassed expectations of many of my beauty products in my beauty closet and I want to share with you what, why, when, where, how! Guess where I found it, the best way to use it, and why it is the best of all mists I’ve tried. To discover all this, Sign up for my newsletter (column on the right) – will be talking all about it in my newsletter tomorrow. PS There will be a giveaway:)

INTENTION ENERGIZES; ACTION TRANSFORMS

Written by , Posted in Body, Clarity, Inspiration, Mind, Strength, You

Image by Andy Hur: @THEWHELMING

Image by Andy Hur: @THEWHELMING

Intention energizes; action transforms.

What is my real intention? This is the question I had to ask myself subconsciously the past few weeks when I’ve felt an energy block. Work wasn’t flowing so easily, opportunities seemed blocked. I had to look inwards and call out my intention. What I realized was that I actually did have a lot of opportunities in front of me. I just wasn’t recognizing each opportunity with its own unique possibilities. I was dismissive. I had my mind set on my own set of outcomes. When I released the idea of exclusivity, and of only doing jobs based on how ‘cool’ it would be for me, the block seemed to slowly release. I started to open up and embrace jobs that were more based upon the big picture, the jobs that would further my purpose which is to inspire, uplift, and cleanse- and this can happen in as many places and platforms that I am able to effectively. It is not at all about me, nor is it about ‘branding’. I put my ego to the side. It gave me a renewed energy to go out and get it- or in this situation.. give it, and to take action on the true intention.

Action was missing because I was so in tune with ‘branding’ and only waiting for jobs that were of a certain tier. I looked beyond my high expectiations, and saw what the real opportunity would be in each and every one of the inquiries for work/collaborations I already had in front of me. When I have my true intention in mind, the work in front of me feels exciting. And when it feels exciting, you should definitely do it! I decided to take action and, like Nike, just do it.

Slowly I see and feel a transformation and feel supported- and almost immediately after this shift, I open my email and I get more favorable inquiries. The block was released. Recently I’ve noticed signs, I kept seeing the numbers 777, which according to spiritual numerology, is a ‘sign that I am on my authentic life path and making progress towards accomplishing my purpose’. My energy now feels balanced and my perception has shifted.

If you feel blocked, I encourage you to look inwards at your own intentions for doing what you do. If you feel you are at a standstill in your work, relationship, or life in general, set your ego aside and ask yourself why you do what you do. What is your intention? Then, take action on that intention to experience transformation.

SELF IMPORTANCE VS. SELF CONFIDENCE

Written by , Posted in Attractive Energy, Clarity, Confidence, Mind, You

IMG_0526

IMAGE BY @thewhelming. // Outfit by @yourstrulybrand

There is a deep difference between self-confidence and self-importance. Self-confidence comes from loving yourself, and self-importance comes from exacerbating your ego.

Self-importance is when you say you are better than another in any way: you are more fit, prettier, hotter, you make more money, you have this and that materially. Self-importance is when you create levels in your mind to feed the ego to make it feel better. Self-importance comes from a place of deep insecurity. It is when the mind creates levels in order to create a sense of temporary fulfillment in your place in life. You need validation from outward situations from people or things. Compliments determine your level of “confidence” for the moment. Offensive comments affect you. Self-importance is when you treat certain people differently because they are, in your mind, above or below you.

We are all one, interrelated and connected. No one being is above you, no one being is below you.

Self-confidence FEELS good. There is no competitive spirit in malice. It is about loving yourself so full heartedly, and being so aware of this love that no matter what compliment you receive or what offensive comment you are given- you remain unaffected because you already know your truth. You’ve already come to terms with your flaws and you are well-aware and accept those flaws. You know how to turn those ‘flaws’ into personal strengths for beneficial circumstances. Self-confidence does not compare, it does not boast. It just is. No need to prop yourself up with words or bougie actions. You are enough with your presence alone. Confidence is knowing that there is no one in the world like you, that can express the ideas that you want to express like you. We all have our own collective experiences in life that make us who we are. Embrace that fully.

No one being is superior to you, no one being is inferior to you.

xx love & light.

LUXURY IS..

Written by , Posted in Beauty, Clarity, Happiness, Inner Purity, Mind, Self-Care

IMG_9606

Despite all of the distractions the daily grind gives you, stay on your path. Stay focused inwards. Do not let the petty things, the ego, the material things take over truth. What is real is within you. Look above the petty things and situations, turn ego thoughts into loving thoughts instead, and enjoy the material pleasures for what it is- material. Comfort is a beautiful thing which gives you the platform to carry out your life duties; excess is frivolous and unnecessary. Luxury is elegance. Luxury is not gaudy, excessive, or boastful. Luxury is in the mind. Think about it, your mind can be a landfill.. or it can be heaven.

Get clean with clarity by meditating. Start today. Start with 2 minutes. You don’t need to be a yogi, or have incense while you do it. Just sit and be still, and you are already there.

Who you are, what you do, how you see things should not be clouded by what you are here to do. Stay focused, prioritize self-care, have an amazing week! Happy Monday.

xx love & light.
