Comfort with Karma

Karma is the Sanskrit word for action where the teachings of karma is not meant to be a punishment. Present for the sake of education; it is deep rooted that a person only ‘suffers’ if they have created the conditions for suffering. The teachings are for the actions :: How else is someone to learn how to be a good person if they are never taught that harmful action is wrong. Alas a person only suffers if they have created the conditions for suffering. 1. The Great Law “As you sow, so shall you reap.” Also known as the “Law of Cause and Effect.” To receive happiness, peace, love, and friendship, one must BE happy, peaceful, loving, and a true friend. Whatever one puts out into the Universe will come back to them. 2. The Law of Creation Life requires our participation to happen. It does not happen by itself. We are one with the Universe, both inside and out. Whatever surrounds us gives us clues to our inner state. Surround yourself with what you …

The Rite of The Womb

Letting go of the need to know why and remembering the earth mantra deep in our bones. That you are beautiful, that you belong, that you are wild and powerful. As wise women, creating together, sitting within a circle, knowing that things unfold in the most perfect way. [The song from the mother]    Women hold unexpressed emotions such as fear, pain, anger, and grief within their womb. Often not ours, an inheritance passed down from others or from experience. Contained sexuality, power, wisdom, rage and traumatic child births. Physical period pain, perimenopause, endometriosis, polycystic ovaries and female disease. Carrying the pain and suffering of the female cycle. At times our bodies as women don’t feel our own, we feel dishonoured. The monthly lunar rite of the womb workshop allows us to remember the womb is not a place to store fear and pain, it is a place as women where we take back our power our love that it is a place of creation that births life. As a holistic healer I encourage women …

What can a new moon teach us?

All of the Universe is a vibration of energy. We are either vibrating in harmony or disharmony, vibrating frequency through our thoughts, words, actions, emotions, and feelings. What we put out to the Universe we receive back. Kundalini Yoga nurtures the recognition to resource the harmony and beauty within the messages gifted by the phases of nature to help us align into its vibration. Where the moons graceful female cycle forms as a life blood reminder of our own personal vibration of phases as a woman.  For our female energy waxes and wanes, ebs and flows much as do the seasons, tides and cycles of life. We simply can not present the same each and every day. Crafting a tending and attention to our own individual ever changing emotional garden with a piety to the self. Having a special attendance to taking care and allowing a container of delicacy for the me. This journey, our soul journey has selected the body we sit within now and with each moon phase it is a gentle reminder …

Yogic Breath & Effective Body Movement Therapy

Week #1  The power within poise Creating time to give our emotional system some much-needed attention and expansion can be hard to resource or understand. Making room in your life for tending to your emotions on a regular basis will and does keep a healthy, balanced and ready for life you. Kundalini Yoga has taught me an everyday practice; to wash the stress from the body, allowing me to reclaim myself a space to quieten the minds noise and to open into a peaceful and calm stillness. A little slice of personal time, with regularity and patience has added a beauty of balance to my life. A way to process the emotions regularly; accompanied to journalling and yogic diaries allowing acknowledgement and the release of emotions. A tending to my emotional garden, thus keeping me healthy and within a neutral mindset. The hardest working muscle in the body, the heart, functions this way. It does not stop from the time it takes its first beat while we are still in the womb, until we take …

Anger | The heart is a furnace

“When the inverted anger becomes part of the body, the simple effect is that you have absolutely no relationship with your Self… Inferiority complex or superiority complex are a cover-up of inner anger. Manipulation and lying are parts of inner anger. Not being self-sustaining or having a foundation to work it out is an inner anger. Misbehavior, wrong calculation, self-destruction, destroying the business, destroying the relationship are all inner anger… On the other hand, anger comes from the place of the Agaan Granthi. It is the area of the heart, it is the blood, it is the circulation, it is the diaphragm, it is the heart pumping. The whole life depends on it. So in the center of the heart is a furnace. Either it can cook for you or it can burn down your house and there is nothing in between. That is the tragedy of it.” -Yogi Bhajan

Atmosphere | The oils of beautiful aroma

To create a light euphoric atmosphere sprinkle Clary sage around a room, or put a few drops into a bowl of warm water. Having lived and worked with essential oils for several years I tend to take them for granted, yet visitors always comment on the beautiful aromas and I could not imagine life without this essence. I would rather live with the scent of freshly picked flowers and herbs than with the array of household pollutants we buy to freshen our spaces. Essential oils should be chosen according to the ‘mood’ of the party or the occasion. Bergamont, orange and rosewood for summers evenings Frankincense, pine and orange for Christmas Ylang Ylang and rose for romance Orange and Lemon for energy and vibrance Geranium and Lavender for relaxation and decadence Rose or rosewood for feminine spaces The choice and permutations are only subject to personal preference and budget – experiment!

Neroli | The oil of serenity

This oil can be used in the treatment of grief, shock or trauma, yet life can provide many stresses that aren’t necessarily as large yet mini traumas can be created as we have concerns or minor upsets. Sometimes these stresses remain underneath the surface only to rear their head once we lay down and close our eyes in sleep. Neroli has the most divine and uplifting scent, turning pessimism and agitation to serenity, this is a great oil to scent the bedroom and preparing a calming atmosphere. Put a few drops of Neroli and sweet orange oil, which is an equally soothing oil and from the same plant family (Neroli from the blossom of the orange tree, sweet orange extracted from the find of the fruit) into an oil burner or diffuser half an hour before bed.
