I think this is the 6th year that the Chopra Center has offered their FREE 21 day meditation challenge. Give it a try! If you say, “I can’t sit for that amount of time ( 10-15 minutes) and be still and meditate”. Then try grabbing a cup of tea, sit and just listen… the voices, the music, and the lessons are just what this world needs. Give it a try, have O expectations and just BE.
Hugs and Love for a wonderful Day
Toe Balance, full moon, find your inner strength, and just be… Breathe…. set one intention for this coming Moon Cycle and let it go. Let the Moon Goddess take it in and surrender the outcome to her.
remember, Peace in =’s Peace out!
I thought it was time to post; it’s been over a month. So where have I been? I’ve been in training to become a certified yoga teacher. Spending most of my free time working on my studies, AND I LOVE IT!
I can’t quite explain what yoga does for me; it started 5 years ago as I worked one-on-one with a yoga teacher who has since become my treasured friend. I’ll never forget my first downward facing dog, thinking, “You’ve got to be kidding, this is a resting pose”…. But alas, I love it! Yoga taught me to become friends with my body again, this unique body that houses my divine light, my connection to God. Yoga teaches me to take care of my house, not only on the mat but off the mat by what foods I eat, what words I speak, in every aspect of my life, Yoga has touched some core of it and continues to do so as I continue to grow and learn. The learning is endless so the growing is as well.
You rush into a yoga class, lay your mat down onto the floor and you sit, get quite and breathe…………………………………. Your seat roots to the ground, your spine grows tall, and you expand your chest and close your eyes. The crown of your head reaches up to the heavens and you breathe………….you become centered…………………your mind quiets and you become fully present in the NOW… … We are born with this, it is our birth right, but our busy lives and our monkey brain try and keep us in the ego world, the me world, the I world….. Yoga brings us back to the Devine world, the Godly world, the peaceful world. Yoga brings us back to our truest self, which is pure divine light.
I urge everyone to find their yogi within, it’s not about truing your body into a pretzel, and it’s not about the perfect pose, it’s about being fully present, breathing and connecting to the stillness that is already inside you…….be still, get quite and just be……..the rest will come …..
Peace in =’s Peace out!

I think this might be my last one in this collection, I’m starting to feel a pull to create a new line of art… not sure what yet, but…. I’m feeling it.
Wishing you a happy Valentines week.
“That which you give to another will become your own sustenance; if you light a lamp for another, your own way will be lit.”
I read this quote today and loved it…. If you can’t light the light of love for another, be positive for them, be happy for them, lift them up and never knock them down…. if we could LIFT them up everyday, imagine the world we would live in. It would be heaven on earth.
Have a wonderful light filled day!

I have always thought of the Sun and Moon to be the greatest love affair. They give and give so we may live a balanced life, often only getting a glimpse of each-other. The sun sending it rays of warmth to heat the planet and the Moon sending is cooling shadow to balance the heat. When you think about it, it’s really quite magical. In yoga, the Sun represents the male side our right side of our body the Moon represents the female side our left side of the body.
Hope you enjoy ~ wishing you a balanced day and oh yea, have a happy!
Love is nothing if not share with someone. I wish you a wonderful love filled life, give, give, and then give some more.
Peace in =’s Peace out
Have a Happy
