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!

YOGA GLOW, NYC, DECEMBER 17TH

Written by , Posted in Events

IMG_1613 Dear Friends,
December is usually the time of year that I define my desires for the new year ahead, and express gratitude for all that manifested in the year past. I wanted to share a piece of this, for you to manifest all of your desires, in the next Yoga Glow session next Thursday, Dec 17th at 7pm. Direct sign up is here.

What is Yoga Glow?
50-minutes of breath-synchronized movement dedicated to waist slimming, derrière lifting, and anti-aging asanas. Move to energetic and soothing tunes. It ends with an ahhhhmazing ‘spa-vasana’. You will relax with eucalyptus aromatherapy in a hydrating mask while guided into a conscious relaxation meditation.

I am extra excited about the brands collaborating with Yoga Glow for this session: Peach and Lily providing all K-beauty facial masks. And Sakara Life providing beauty water for all guests. Because why wouldn’t you drink rosewater for beauty?:)

xx love & light

BE YOU, BE BRIGHT.

What an amazing feeling when you can share your passion and be authentically you. Self-discovery, and the major shift that you may experience is an out of the world experience that you want to share with the world. Some people take years, some people never reach that point. But if and when you do, you want to share this positive shift in every way you can.

My passion is wellness, inner beauty care and outer beauty care, meditation, beautiful imagery, speaking and teaching, uplifting others. When I post, I post because I genuinely have a message to share. If the intention of the photos you post are not fear-based (out of insecurity, for validation), and it is a passion that you love to express, and there is a joy you want to share with others, then do it!

Real talk: While discussing my career, a friend recently said to me, “What are you doing? What are you trying to accomplish? Are you trying to be a celebrity? Then just say so, be honest!”. Now these were spoken in the form of questions, but I heard them as statements because they felt accusatory and I felt it cheapened my pure intentions. And with everything circulating right now with the news of the Instagram star that shut out social media- Essena, it is a subject that all of us who have a presence on social media, have to consider, what is our intention?

If your intention is coming from a place of ego, for likes, for validation, to become ‘insta-famous’, then yes- you should re-evalutate how you look at yourself and your self worth. What is your self-concept, how is your esteem level? Is your fleeting confidence coming from the validation you get from likes?

It is refreshing to see a young girl sharing this major shift in her life. The way she is sharing it is powerful. However, I like to emphasize in the fact that everyones journey is unique and different. Everyone is coming from a different place and from a different experience. So to snap judge a person and their intentions may not be so fair, maybe step back and realize there is some inner work that needs to be done. We need to take responsibility for our emotions.

Although I was annoyed with the comment from my friend about trying to be a ‘celebrity’, I accepted her statement as a way to reflect on my daily intentions and to watch carefully how I post and to reflect on what I have been posting. My clear intention is to cleanse, inspire, and uplift. What it all comes down to is that, I have a message to share and I do that the best way I can. I am thankful for the reflection, and I know that this caring friend was only speaking from the world that she knows.

We are all doing our best, it is important to know this and to share compassion before judgment. If you see someone that is doing something and you make a judgement, it may be because it is a reflection of how you might be feeling inside yourself. We are all mirrors for each other. How we see the world is how you see yourself. Be gentle with yourself first. And don’t be so quick to judge, especially yourself. We all make the mistakes to come to a realization of what we need to learn to move on to the next level of enlightenment.

Do all things with integrity and balance.

xx love & light. Be you, be bright!!!!

ENERGY FLOWS TO WHERE YOUR ATTENTION GOES

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

Energy flows to where your attention goes. Surround yourself with good vibrations, good visuals of things you want to attract into your life. Fill your mind space with good clean energy. Look to the sky if the streets are not so pretty, train yourself to find the beauty in all things.

Awareness and attention are vastly different. I can be aware of all of the nasty, unhealthy, unkind happenings in the world but I refuse to place my attention towards it. This would only attract more of it, and towards me and the world. It does not matter who you are you are a magnet. It is your choice what you attract.

And I quote this over and over – this quote that I love by Mother Teresa:

“I was once asked why I don’t participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I’ll be there.” –  Mother Teresa

xx love & light.

WHY DO YOU DO WHAT YOU DO

Written by , Posted in Clarity

IMG_7220.JPG

I teach to purify and uplift. Why do you do what you do? Sometimes your passion burns out and you have to re-inspire yourself and ask why you do what you do to get you back to the root of the reason. Remember why you started. When the passion burns out ask yourself why. It’s taking a step back and being mindful. Set the ego aside, and get depth in your reasoning.

Here are a few statements to get you thinking:

I am a _________.
Examples: Healer, lover, warrior, inspiration, supporter, game changer.

I do what I do to __________.
Examples: Heal, love, be strong, inspire, support, make change, help and restore.

I _________ to ___________ .
Examples: I blog to inspire change. I cook to create a healthy lifestyle for my family. I create videos to express my passion for yoga.

Xx love and light.

I’ve been so into fitness lately. All things health, beauty, and fitness have encompassed my daily life. I’m at the gym 5 days a week and eating well-balanced meals. Coffee in the morning will remain though! 

Photo above from last year when I first started enjoying the gym as a lifestyle choice x
