One of the core reasons I keep showing up and taking up space in the spiritual development world is that I want to help people be in a state of receiving more often, which activates their own personal magnetism! Last year I did an experiment with unlocking my own magnetism- I used the moon as … Continue reading Magnetism
In a recent post I shared 3 ways to make meditation more pleasurable- letting the imagination be part of it, focusing on the heart instead of the head, and ending it with physical touch such as self-massage. These send signals of pleasure and safety to the body and let our meditation be not a form … Continue reading 5 (More) Ways to Bring Pleasure into Meditation
This message came through this morning from a loving place so I want to share it. The predominant paradigm in the world seems to be that of divide and polarization these days. But in reality there is no 'external world' because reality isn’t fixed. It's infinite creative potential.

This year I started aligning my life and decisions with the moon. I honestly kind of romanticized it, and thought it would be a way to ‘manifest.’ But ‘manifest’ turned out to mean something way different and deeper than what I thought.

But my weakness was a little 2 year old girl named Adiena. I knew we weren't supposed to … Continue reading The Divine or Chocolate?

So far my phone has … Continue reading Phone Off, Social Media Gone
Asheville...driving in the car windows rolled down, breeze blowing, radio off. Mountain air. Energy. Pulsating. Blue sky. Clear mind. No-thought. No time. Boundless. Centered. Just the moment. Chanting. This was one of my earliest experiences of bhakti yoga- each month I'd immerse myself in 3 days of group chanting to my teacher’s guitar sing along … Continue reading Chanting & Altered States
When I was a teenager I survived an intense 3 day LSD trip which was more like an insomniac blur...it involved a spontaneous 14 hour drive to the east coast, parading nude in the streets, quitting my lifeguard job, and sadly at the end of it thinking I was a video game character.
