Awakening to my fear, my judgement, my shadow, my ugliness.
My heart pain indicates all that I have held against me.
My self hatred, my guilt, my judgement of why I am so bad.
I feel it and watch.
Endless stories, faces, situations show themselves.
Stories of what I have done. Who I have been. Where I have been.
I release as they float by my inner vision.
No longer locked in my heart and body.
They were experiences that hurt.
Rejection, disappointment and pain.
I let go of them now and just keep the learning.
Why house the pain in my heart and being?
It no longer serves me and my world.
It is learning.
Mistakes. Choices that didn't thrive my spirit.
I let go and let the light replace them.
I am neutral now.
I feel clearer
I looked at, watched them pass and released them.
They run me no more.
They have done their work.
I see my shadow and reclaim that energy.
I love myself anyway.
I release these wounds so they can heal.
I forgive myself for these experiences of pain.
I no longer need them.
They are not serving me.
I feel free!
I feel Light!
My wonder awakened there in my heart.

I teach others that living is yoga. To make all acts sacred, all beautiful in and of itself, even fear or panic, spaces you pass through, with conscious awareness as you move through, this is the yoga of living. Being in the moment and having a perspective in your foundation that truly everything is for your growth and upliftment. Knowing truly you are not given what you can not handle. Being able to find this place within through the panorama of life. This is my high goal, the goal of Raja Yoga, to be present in all acts. Living this truth is empowering.
I share kinesthetic experiences so it is easier to be in the moment. Joy, clarity, relaxation, focus all are important to live life fully and come from grounding and aligning all parts of yourself into one unit. To be fully in your body, in this sensory mode where you notice the nuances of color, texture, sound, wind, other peoples energy, all your senses, brings you present. You more often can get lost to time, not in a reckless way but in a way of enjoyment that is good for you. I have spent a lot of my life trying to focus this sensing into a more mechanical, ordered trait. It won’t fit there. It is of its own accord because it comes from sensory, feeling nature, creative, flowing. It is a gift, not hindrance as I was taught.
When I finally gave this its due honor, allowing this sense to develop and be used as the gift of being in my body, mind, riding the emotions and embracing my spirit, it brought me towards a flowing existence. The senses bring us alert in our bodies. From here we can use all faculties to surf the world, not just the mind, we can engage our multidimensional nature. If you are only in the mind you cannot access all the senses correctly. Blending the body messages with the mind perspective are the yoga balance we seek. It also offers an opening to our 6th sense. Blending the many perspectives of ourselves opens the empathetic gift, feeling the connectedness we truly have to others.
That is what I have discovered through doing the physical, Tia Chi, dancing, yoga, honoring my body through gentle organic movement has tapped me into an energy source I didn’t know before. As I developed my honor and connection to my body by being in it fully, it has much to tell me about the world in a subtle way that I could miss being caught in the chatter and noise of the mind. These flowing movements put me in a relaxed flowing state. My body remembers how it feels to move in rhythm and calm energy. Good practice for this our hectic lives.
Additionally, meditating on a place of fullness, filled and flowing with connection to this universal energy force allows the safety to perceive the world as safe and expanding . We are always able to pass through. Life becomes the yoga of experiencing it without judgment and flowing through it. Seeing this way brings in joy. This practice of calling in fullness, connection to the one that we are all part of, helps train the body to experience life in fullness. Creating great new ways to live and move in the world.
The Eastern arts, both healing and expressive, inspire us because of the pace, present awareness they teach us. To live as you move like a dance of poses knowing all have their place in the flow of change is the art. Finding a blessing in having a body, honoring it and its nuances as your ally, aligning our tools, mental, emotional, physical with our spirit at the helm. This is the yoga of living! This is the gift I share in teaching. It allows you to calm down, relax, get into oxytocin and Joyful living is the natural outcome. Like Magic!
I invite you to give yourself this gift. I am only a consult away! May we walk forward with the goal to make life art, to live in joy, play with it and make living a yoga of expressing your true spirit.
How lovely to Be Queen!

Relationships can be our biggest energy drain as well as fuel in life. It takes energy to continue to connect, make time, get along and experience others. We all know that it involves work to have good relationships. As I was taught in Tantra, they are meant to expand us in beautiful ways. There is a dance, a rhythm and a way to use this energy to create harmony and fueling through them.
We all know this fueling and ease we have with others. It is the goal of two in any type of relationship. Often things begin this way and then later we find it is not so easy. There is growth and sandpapering as we call it often in relationships which adds to the blending and expansion. However, there are times where a situation has outlived its support. We don't need to feel bad as relationships change. We do need to review our connections and see when and where our true support comes from and if it still is supporting us.
Often we rely on loyalty for things that have been around for a while. There is greatness to this but not every relationship needs to stick about because of length of time. We all grow and change through life and so do our friendships, partnerships and work mates. It is our responsibility to put our energy and effort towards things that fuel and enliven us. If a connection that at one time was very valuable has lost it's value in giving fueling energy, it is time to move on. I found this most challenging for I have know many of the same mix for over 35 years. On this new leg, many are not really in my circle as they were at other times. It is ok. Longevity doesn't always make for a fueling friendship. We can get caught in energy drains here easily. Pay attention to your own use of connection and influence.
We have relationships that are necessary in life with work or perhaps family that we are required to participate in. If they are draining, be conscious to see how to interact differently for the least exhaustion. These are just present and we work with them. When we get to pick our connections, it makes sense only to stay in the ones that truly circle the fueling. We have these necessary challenges in some areas. So chose only those you find supportive and energetic toward who you are when you can. This changes as you change. A revisit towards relationships is important if you want to use your energy wisely.
We all know when we kept someone around that we were whining about or felt exhausted participating with. If this continues to occur, let them go. The fall is the perfect time and energy to let relationships that have no refueling value go. I am not talking about friends that need more at one moment and you the next. That is a positive circle of connect that goes through rhythms. It is the plaguing ones that exhaust you that you can allow to fall off so newer people can come in.
It is a very important part of our experience being with others. If you are not getting fuel from relationships you are missing the boat on the expansion they offer. We are in charge of our energy and where we put it. Relationships are powerful fuel and equally powerful energy drain. Take the inventory to see if you could cut loose any ties to others rather than complain on how they treat you, exhaust you or take advantage of you.
I inspire you to be clear on the tantra dance of harmonious relationships. There is great power in like minded, joyful connects to support you. Be sure that if you put time into others, you are both well served. It will get more vibrance in your step when you only carry about you those who fuel your life force.
