YOU’RE A SPIRITUAL WARRIOR

Written by , Posted in Beauty, Body, Inner Purity, Inspiration, Mind, Self-Care, Sexy Tone, Sunina

Untitled-2 Sharing some words by Deepak Chopra today. Words that inspire me to seek to see through the eyes of love in any / every situation.

“You’re a true spiritual warrior, dedicated to destroying any ignorance that impedes the expression of truth. Experience the consciousness of a goddess of wisdom. Look at the world through her eyes, hear the prevailing conversation through her ears. You are refinement, you are elegance, and you are civility and wisdom at it’s highest value… Dive into your essential light essence and emerge as Aphrodite, as Venus, the goddess of love and beauty. You’re the embodiment of sensuality, passion, and sexuality. In your presence, sentient beings lose their heads and crave the rapture of Eros. Express and experience the consciousness of the goddess of love. Experience the body of the goddess of sensuality. Savor her sensuality. See the world through the eyes of the goddess of love.”

xx love & light. Have a blessed week. Be gentle with yourself and your body!

ROCKSTAR: REACH HIGHER

Keep reaching, keep moving, keep dreaming, keep on!

Today’s post is inspired by my PIC, my babe, my fiancé!

“Ever since I was young, his words [Jay-Z] always stood out to me. Kid from Brooklyn who didn’t want to be average. My 8th grade teacher gave me a card for graduation and it said “you were meant for greatness” and I read that and thought “wow she knows my secret” like I was Superman lol. Gotta keep grinding harder, gotta keep getting bigger.. gotta keep doing something. There is no momentum without movement, so keep it moving.”

Cues to reach up higher in Rockstar:

Lift up the toes, activate the core, ground the knuckles down to the ground, lift the hips to the sky, energetic fingertips to touch the sky, engage the glutes, relax the neck & shoulders, drop the crown of the head back, breathe.

xx love & light.

HOW TO GET BACK TO BASICS

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

Hi! I’m back. Back from vacation and now Back to Basics! We sometimes complicate the simplest of situations with our own self-importance, aka the ego. Everyday you have the choice of either waking up to be bright with a day full of miracles – or you can choose to wake up full of stress with a day full of complaints and struggles. Why even think to choose the latter? Don’t you deserve the very best? When all else fails, simplify! Get back to basics. Don’t point out all the wrongs, point out all the rights, only the best.

How to get back to basics:

Forgive, constantly! Not everyone and everything will go your way. Don’t trip up on angry people, difficult situations. Understand that every individual has a reason for why they are the way they are and then keep it moving. It’s not your job to analyze and criticize. Work on self-reflection so much so that you have no time to criticize others. Forget bad situations, keep it moving.

Be present! Learn to be where you are when you are there. Don’t worry about tomorrow, don’t think about yesterday. What is now in front of you is all that matters, take in every moment.

Spend ample time with nature. What I love about being at the beach (salty hair & flowers in the air!) is that it is so naturally healing. The breeze, the salty water, the open air – all amazing for your mind, body.

Body. Take care of it! There is no shame in taking care of your face, your body, it is the carrier of your soul. Revitalizing your body everyday is so important. Stretch, work out, meditate, get a massage, do an at-home DIY facial. Do what works for you. Stay healthy.

Let go of clutter and noise. A huge part of getting back to basics is to forget the unnecessary. Sometimes, that means giving yourself space from situations or even people who may emotionally drain you, and are energetically negative. Spend time with uplifters, high thinkers, the funny- the best types to be around. “With every encounter, we exchange information and energy, and we come away changed just a little bit.” -Deepak Chopra

Simplify!

xx love & light.

Teaching at the Mondrian in Los Angeles was truly amazing. I taught my ‘Yoga Glow’ sequence, a series of postures for relaxation, beauty, and skin glow, exclusively for the Mondrian. Thank you to the team at the Mondrian! The staff and marketing team were brilliant and sooo helpful.

I am leaving LA tomorrow morning, it was a great week and I enjoyed the sunny Cali weather out here! Can’t wait to share some of the workouts and content I created while out here on the blog next week.

xx love & light.
