What does your journey call for? To be alive in this moment, in this time, is to be on the cusp of this energetic upgrade in the human experience. The appearance of the world around us may seem to reflect something other than an upgrade.
Today as I found my faith may be challenged and find it difficult to reconcile my spiritual beliefs after hearing a dear friend of mine who I grew up with in New York, Lisa, her daughter Kelsey passed away from AML Acute myeloid leukemia .
Cancer has touched so many of our lives, I’ve lost my mom, other family members, a dear friend, and now absolutely heart broken to hear the sad news about Kelsey.
We love you Lisa, Chris and family. The McNulty’s and the Berger family. We remember her for who she was; the most selfless and compassionate little girl, who had a radiant smile and a brave spirit that was loved by so many. She’ll be remembered for her bravery and strength, which was remarkable. She took everything cancer could throw at her and kept going while maintaining a positive perspective and an upbeat attitude every step of the way, because that’s who Kelsey Berger was.
Heaven received an angel yesterday 4/17/18

Heaven received angel Kelsey. Rest in peace 4/17/18

TONIGHT: A time of new beginnings when we access the courage to take the leap of faith on a new adventure that offers excitement & new growth!
Fortunately, these new moon partners with Mercury, the planet of communication going direct, making it easier to create plans & form agreements without misunderstandings.
Aries New Moon gives a good time to commit to personal goals that express positive energies of the sign of the Ram. It is time to take action, try something new and innovative, and go at it with confidence; discover our own personal courage.
This is a strong lunar cycle under which to re-evaluate our relationship to ourselves. With this potent Aries energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and a New Moon in Aries is especially prime with an opportunity to discover the benefits of expressing ourselves with authenticity – expressing ourselves as we are. We might also find ways to learn how to rely on ourselves and to be happy about doing so, it could go a long way towards finding inner happiness when we know that we can be self-sufficient without blaming others for not helping us out.
Enjoy this New moon cycle as it is a time to revitalize ourselves through experiences that break the routine that involves doing something fresh and new.
Happy New Moon!!!
love, k 🙂
One of the most powerful archetypes that Yogi Bhajan shared in his lectures was the Ashtabhuja.
The Ashtabhuja is the archetype of woman as Goddess. She represents warmth, heat, energy and her body shines with a radiance like the glowing sun. She has ashta – eight, bhuja – arms.
In her seven hands she holds powerful symbols: a bow and arrow representing wisdom and awareness; the lotus which is a symbol of the feminine; a discus which is like a water wheel when it empties and spills forward creation; a scepter which when thrown is like a lightning bolt to dispel negativity or adversity; and a jar of the divine nectar of life. Her eighth hand holds a mala or prayer beads that give eight Siddhis or spiritual powers and nine Nidhis or treasures.
I was always intrigued by this Goddess of the Universe. She spoke to me and I felt her power every time I even spoke her name.
Let her be alive within each woman. That became my prayer. I knew Yogi Bhajan was asking each woman not to worship the Ashtabhuja, but to embody her.
My prayer on this day and forever is that as women we may embody this divine being throughout actions, words, and thoughts. And let these words of Yogi Bhajan resound in our hearts and spirit as he exalts our true power as a woman.

In times of uncertain reality it is easy to become attached to negative outcomes.
It is a time of reaching deep into the soul and remembering beyond the linear. If attachment to the timeline is the primary source of energy there may be difficulty in creating reality.
A moment of courage is required when all the energy of the environment is in chaos. Realize that this is but on chapter in the story of you and your energy. No matter what occurs, the continuance of your soul is true.
Take the lessons of a harsh reality and put them to good use. Appreciate the small moments of success as they will attract more if encouraged to do so.
Love those whom you cherish with great warmth. Those playing in this drama have participated with you in other moments.
Attempt to clean up the small pockets of chaos as they approach you. It will help sooth the mass consciousness energy so that the whole environment may heal and evolve.
Maintain the fierceness of knowing who you are and the role you play in this environment. Know that you are far more than just the face you see in the mirror.
Keep counsel with the truth. The truth of your incarnation and that of your eternal soul.
Be a participant in this life not an observer. Create, expand, and grow, and make life happen. Do not let life happen to you.
You are the creator.
You have the possibility of changing it all.
Have courage and just do it.

One of the most basic goals of Kundalini Yoga is to take care of the spine. Spinal flex offers a series of exercises (a kriya) to activate, align and loosen up the spine.
Lower back pain and upper back stress are some of the most common health complaints of adults. The best way to avoid backaches is to take care of your spine on a daily basis. There are no quick fixes for back pain, but spinal flexes is an effective maintenance program.
How to Do It:
Sit in easy pose. Grab the ankles. As you inhale powerfully, flex the spine forward, keeping the shoulders relaxed and the head straight. Do not move the head up and down. Exhale and relax the spine back. Continue rhythmically with deep breaths. As you inhale feel the energy go down the spine. As you exhale feel it come back up to the third eye. Mentally bring SAT down and NAM back up the spine.

The Sikh community of Southern California came together for one of the largest Baisakhi celebrations at the Los Angeles Convention Center on April 8th 2018 that saw nearly 25,000 people attending the festivities full of devotion and exuberance.
The Sikh Dharma of Southern California along with the Guru Ram Das Ashram and Gurudwaras from Central and Southern California participated in some way through organizing langars, prayers, chants, decorations and the (nagar kirtan) float parade of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib.
The kirtan started at 7 a.m., which included spiritual and devotional songs and music performances by various groups like children’s, youth and women’s Jathas, as well as Ragi Kiran Jathas. Apart from the spiritual programs, the committee also organized a bazaar which had beautiful paintings, jewelry, books, keertan CDs and indian fashion clothes for sale.
The event included an honorary ceremony during which “Spirit of Baisakhi Awards” were presented to dignitaries for their contribution towards the Sikh community. These awardees were Congresswoman Judy Chu. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, and Internationally renowned teacher, author and spiritual leader Bhai Sahiba Bibiji Inderjit Kaur Khalsa, “Bibiji”, the beloved wife of Yogi Bhajan.

What is the difference between being indulgent and wasting energy plus time? Are we wasting energy when taking a nap because we’re tired instead of cleaning the house, or running an errand for someone? We can indulge in need for a nap because we’re tired and then assess whether we want to do the other things. This month shows that we’ll need to define that difference for ourselves now because this is about creating self value, energetic balance and using our energy resources wisely, ensuring that we are part of the collective group that is on the receiving end of our energetic attention.
With Mercury retrograde until April 16th, being indulgent and resurrecting things from the past will also come into play prominently.
Have you ever rushed out the door with a full list of things to do only to find you left your wallet at home or you see that your car has a flat tire and that changes all of your plans?
Sometimes the Universe reminds us that we need to take it easy, to slow down, take care of ourselves and fill our own energy tank on a daily basis.
Mercury retro is excellent for release, review, regenerate, refresh, re-think, re-consider, renew, resolve, and rest. Many ascension cycles are going to be ending this month in April and in May so that new ones can begin. While we believe that ascension happens in a straight line, a one-shot journey from destination A to B, it does not happen that way (which is why we can feel like we are not making any progress). Instead, we move through ascension in energetic cycles and once we have completion and closure with the one we’re in, the next one begins.
This month continues with resurrection and good questions to ask yourself would be, what can you resurrect in your life now?
Review your dreams and desires. Are any of them still valid for you? Is it time for some energetic house cleaning to remove the density that is clogging the drains of your dreams?
The energy of April has lots of positive energetics to fill your tank and make your dreams a reality.
love, k 🙂
