Open up to new opportunities by realizing and tapping into our vast selves that are always connected to love which is always connected to infinite potentials. Being consciously aware of love, we begin to infuse it into our awareness and allow it to permeate our choices and in our reality.
Everything in life responds to love in the most magical way. Love instantly transforms limitation into limitless possibility and in doing so, changes what was, into what truly can be. Open your heart and allow the magic of love to flow, revealing the beauty that is always present and ready to blossom.

It is a gift to live in the present and to keep bringing ourselves back into this present moment, because the present is our only place of power. It is here that we live from our heart, where our soul’s voice is speaking.
Only when I am in harmony with my spirit do I ever feel free. It has been a huge process of growth to expand into my heart and live from the impulses of my soul. The trust in myself as the extension of my soul’s imperatives brings me into the present time, because it is only here that I can know the truth of my being. In the truth within me is the freedom I desire.
Life is causing us to go deeper into our hearts and find what is true and important for us. Recognizing when we are being asked to speak our deepest truth is an important part of our growth process.
Feeling free to be myself requires that I give myself permission to open my heart to me. At times I need as much encouragement, support and blessing as anyone else. I respond to my loving-kindness and compassion by relaxing and feeling more at home in my body. When I act as my own best friend, giving myself the time and energy I need so I can be in alignment, my world improves. There is freedom to be, do and say what is revealed to me in the moment. I also remember that I have all the time and energy I need and I am fully supported at all times. This is the true freedom.
When we look at what our gifts are, we usually overlook the gift of the loving presence that we can bring to every moment we spend with another. This is what so many are looking for, and it is so amazingly simple to give. We just need to give ourselves permission to be the true authentic, loving person that we are. That gift will feel like true freedom.
Feeling Free to be yourself is the Greatest Gift you can give. When you are feeling free to be yourself, that is the time your light shines the brightest. That is when you are most relaxed and happy, which is the way your Spirit intended you to live.

Today, Nov. 18, is Tirumalai Krishnamacharya’s birthday.
The teacher of not only Pattabhi Jois, aka Guruji, and B.K.S. Iyengar, he’s another who seems to prove that practice, practice, practice, and long life is coming.
Krishnamacharya (the grandfather of ALL yoga that you see out there these days) was born November 18, 1888.
As an expression of gratitude here are a few things I’ve learned from him, without ever knowing him, and that inspire me daily:
Messenger of Yoga
As a teacher he kept a low profile but that did not mean he stopped propagating the message of yoga, he just did it wisely. Matter of fact, when A.G. Mohan was to go onto a yoga conference in the 70’s that was the direct advise that Krishnamacharya gave him: “Propagate Yoga Wisely”
He was picky of the students he took on because he knew that they would reflect on him and wanted more than anything to please the wishes of his guru Bramacharya, who asked him to go into the world and propagate yoga. That he did.
Every yoga teacher out there has been influenced by Krishnamacharya whether we know it or not.
He took Yoga seriously and practiced all his life.
Krishnamacharya inspires me to get on the mat everyday. His determined eye gaze seems to pervade all around the place where I practice, I know he is watching!

All situations are opportunities for the Divine Light to shine through you as times of celebration. Life is divinely guided and directed at every moment. Calling on the Angels for assistance gives you a direct link to your greater good and aids the wisdom of the universe to flow through you.
Whatever situation is occurring in your life, allow the Divine Light to show you the possibility for meaningful outcomes. Ask for creative solutions for the highest good for all concerned. This will open the door for the Angelic forces to begin their work. Receiving the assistance of Angels is truly a cause for celebration. Celebrate the fact that you are not alone. Celebrate the fact that all you do is now divinely guided, because you asked.
You can believe you have to do it all by yourself if you choose. However, with even the smallest intention to receive help, with the slightest hope that good can come of the situations in your life, and the willingness to release the fear Divine Light will flow to you in abundance. This will bring inspiration and guidance for your next steps, and will allow you to actually do that which will be in your highest good. You are the one who takes the steps, no one can do this for you. And when you walk, you will be held in the arms of the Angels of Light walking in trust and faith.
Receive this light and celebrate

Thank You. 11th day of the 11th month. Veterans Day is a day not only to remember those who died in service to our country, but also to recognize those who continue to serve today. With gratitude for the heroism, victory and to those who fulfill this patriotic service to maintain the freedoms of our country. #VeteransDay
It is a time of growth and renewal, a time for breakthroughs into new levels of being for each of us individually. It is a time that is jam-packed with awesome potential.
In past centuries, only a few people would have the consciousness to experience their divinity within the human form. Now all of humanity has that potential. We are moving and creating our lives within the power of Divine Light. This allows us each of us to access pure alignment to the Source of All That Is.
Within you there is a place of such Peace that you can totally relax there and allow it to soak through your being. Within you is Truth and Joy, allow yourself to experience this place within, where you can be free just to be. It is as close as your breath. And it is with your breath, and the power of your thoughts and imagination, that you can begin to experience your Higher Self and your connection to the Divine.
love, k 🙂
Happy Halloween! Wishing you all a safe and spooky night.
love, k 🙂
Halloween is an annual celebration of renewal. The meaning of Halloween is all about the inherent potential all life holds for us. It is a profound moment in which we can transform darkness by pointing ourselves into the direction of our own guiding lights.
The meaning of Halloween solidifies the presence of great transition in our midst. Our ancestors could instinctually feel shifts within nature, and so they anticipated internal shifts within spirit, mind and body too.
Halloween was and still is a landmark way to embrace the changes in our lives and prepare ourselves to meet amazing transformation in the months that lay ahead.
There is more to the symbolic meaning of Halloween than how much candy we get at the end of the night. It is a sacred holiday that originated from some very cool ancient people. Before the days of grocery stores, people had to provide for themselves. Halloween is a time of harvesting those provisions, and celebrating the bounty of the earth.
Have a safe and Happy Halloween!!

Beautiful Mala necklaces hold a special significance for the wearer based on where they’re from, the power imbibed into them. All in all we feel and experience an energy resonance while holding the beads and this increases over time as we wear and use them for meditation.
Traditionally a mala means garland and has 108 beads strung together and one guru bead, in the very center, symbolic of the light and the teacher who helps lift our awareness making us self-reliant and independent. The guru bead is also a marker for your fingers during meditation and mantra repetition and you’ll feel it easily while using the mala with your eyes closed.
A common way to use the mala is to engage in a japa, or mantra meditation. The repetitive recitation of a single sound, such as om, a few words, such as om so ham, or your personal mantra which can be deeply transformative is done once per bead. Tracing the beads of the mala with your fingers can help you keep track of japa, and you can set an intention to repeat one, two or three malas per day as a start.
Similar to praying with rosary beads, meditating with a mala helps calm the mind, deepens the breath and gradually re-directs focus of the mind away from daily worries and towards positive and spiritual thought patterns.
Meditation is well known to positively affects the brain and mood. However finding the time and practice that enables us to be still, calm and focused for 10 minutes or more is generally quite challenging. This is where your mala and mantra are essential tools for achieving better attention, wellness and enhanced self-awareness.
Check out our online jewelry boutique. We feature three different types of malas.
