Intuitive Thursday Thoughts

According to Albert Einstein, “The only real valuable thing is intuition.” Why is that? Because our intuition is a unique, powerful, internal guidance system (much like a GPS) that guides us through every decision we face–if we will be aware, listen, and respond.

The voice of inner knowing exists inside everyone. As we trust our ability to become aware, listen, and respond, we find treasures of knowledge, answers to challenging questions, and solutions to some of life’s most difficult problems.

Developing our intuition typically happens in stages. First, we must become aware that this inner knowing exists. A personal sixth sense is activated by training your awareness to become sharper and receive more information from others. You begin this process by learning how to expand your consciousness and better understand the way your body takes in and responds to energy.

Intuitive living is the art of developing your awareness to be a highly sophisticated receiver of vibrations that will give you more accurate data to work with as you interact with people. As we begin to recognize our intuitive voice, we discover that it’s necessary for us to exist in an environment where we can hear it. This is the second stage–learning to listen.

When our lives (and our minds) are cluttered with static from the outside world (disruptive music, television, people, internet and telephone input, substance misuse, unhealthy eating, and negative communication) we become so overwhelmed that we often do not hear our inner voice. By simply “turning off” or “shutting down” disruptive energy and paying attention, we begin to connect to this powerful source.

Those who are best able to act on their intuition are people who live a balanced and peaceful life.

Why? Because when we have more peace of mind (which comes through balanced living) we are better equipped to take action (such as, we’re more trusting, less afraid, and not so controlling). So relax, exercise, and meditate. Don’t overwork and avoid any addictions. And be sure to know the facts and not be overly influenced by fears. Fears create illusions that often misguide and they typically leave us feeling more confused. Our intuition brings peace. So respond when you feel harmony rather than havoc.

Pay attention to your inner voice, listen well and respond. Take steps to clean up the clutter in your environment. Invite your inner voice to come forward and speak more clearly to you. See what happens, and take note of the answers and solutions that begin to flow from your intuition.

Heart-Opening Sequence for Self-Love

Find Happiness within. Yoga has taught me that every body is meant to be loved and respected as it is now. You are already worthy of love. You are enough. We’re all enough. Your perspective shifts as you spend more time tapping into love and happiness within yourself. Following sequence in yoga is all about fostering self-love because asana opens the heart, increases blood flow to the brain, and invites you to tap into your core strength, increasing confidence, silencing negative thoughts, and alleviating stress.

Superfruit Pomegranate Smoothie

Superfruit pomegranate smoothie has some essential ingredients that not only gets thumbs up in the taste department but provides added nutrients that your body craves. Let’s get whirling my friend!

We would be lost without our Vitamix blender, and it’s a smoothie maker of choice.  Instead of pressing the button on our coffee maker, my morning routine is loading up the blender with all the ingredients needed to start the day off right. If you’re like me, 5 minutes is all you’ve got before rushing out the door.

KEY INGREDIENTS FOR A HEALTHY SUPERFRUIT SMOOTHIE

• Pomegranate: One of the most recognizable superfruits available, the sweet and tangy fruit packs a  punch. The pomegranate juice, fruit, and skin is a source of antioxidants like  polyphenolic flavonoids and anthocyanidins that help to scavenge free radicals. The juice also provides Vitamin C, Vitamin B5, potassium, and fiber when consuming the arils. This smoothie recipe adds juice and arils, so you get benefits from both. Pomegranates are in season from September to February, so eat them now while they are at its peak!

• Pears: Each tasty crisp bite provides high amounts of fiber. In a 100 calorie serving, pears contain almost 6 grams of fiber. Asian pears have the most amount of fiber per fruit, however, are available only during the cooler weather seasons.

• Banana: Not only does it add a naturally sweet and creamy texture, but bananas are also a superfruit loaded with potassium and resistant starch carbohydrates to help with a feeling of fullness.

• Strawberries: These ruby red berries are loaded with Vitamin C, fiber and an excellent source of folic acid. I used frozen strawberries, so you don’t have to worry about the seasonality, and it adds a cold, luscious texture to the smoothie.

• Ginger: Astringent and unforgettable spice, this unique root is a super food. It’s been used historically to aid in nausea, digestive issues, and pain from inflammation. It adds a warming sensation and slightly sour note to the smoothie and boosts the flavor or each sip.

Now that you know why you’re adding in these incredible ingredients it’s now time to give them all a quick whirl! A quick pour and spin, and you’ve got a superfood pomegranate smoothie ready in 5 minutes or less!

Who’s ready for a refreshing glass of pomegranate smoothie?

Happy Birthday Krishnamacharya!

Krishnamacharya (the grandfather of ALL yoga that you see out there these days) was born November 18, 1888. If he would be living today he would turn 129!

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!

Crown Chakra Meditation 

Crown Chakra Tune-Up Practice. Śīrṣāsana (आसन, Āsana) = pose, posture, seat. #shirshasana शीर्षासन, Śīrṣāsana = #headstand .. Integration of your entire being from head to toe experience plus a vast connection between your innermost self an all of life. ✨ 

Enlightened moments can spring forth at any time, as yoga practice is good to open you to the possibility and prime you to witness those moments of grace sprinkled throughout your day. 


Working toward enlightenment may seem unrealistic, or completely beyond the scope of your radar. But regardless of whether you practice yoga to stay fit and healthy or to work toward complete liberation, do not miss the opportunity to practice of insight and positive action. 
It is this integration to experience a vast connection between your innermost self and all life.
