Bhakti Fest Yoga|Dance|Sacred Music Festival 

Bhakti translates as love and devotion. This fabulous festival is four days of camping in the starry California desert, or spending your stay at Joshua Tree Retreat Center practicing meditation and yoga to live musicians, singing kirtan and dancing barefoot to the likes of MC Yogi and Donna Delory until late at night. 

My whole heart is filled with so much happiness to be at Bhakti Fest
For those who like to keep the yoga and mantra mix going, White Swan Records offers innumerable soundtracks for the yoga of life. 
Coconut Bliss served delicious scoops of pure delight. Cool, creamy bites of salted caramel, ginger cookie, and hazelnut chocolate kept yogi and yogini faces more than relaxed, chilled and happy while vibing to the mystic afternoon beats of Girish. With an eclectic mix of rock, indian and reggae inspired rhythms, every artist set us off into a state of bhavtastic bliss!  

Bhakti Fest as a whole was  awesome. Part of what made it so powerful was that the entire sacred festival revolved around live music. It has been envisioned and talked about how Bhakti Fest is as a spiritual Woodstock, where thousands of people come together, chanting the names of God. 
Krishna Das has said that in India, people understand that God is within. The Hindu images associated with God, deities like Krishna and Hanuman and Ganesha, are symbols of the divine that live in each one of us. Chanting the names of God from any tradition is sacred because each repetition is said to be a seed, and sooner or later, that seed grows.

The seeds of love were certainly sent out with rain showers and rainbows in the early morning sky. It was breathtaking to look at and a rainbow has such a powerful message to convey. Lovely to gather there with a cluster of new friends, sitting on lawn chairs and blankets, singing along with other music artists, everyone dancing and spinning. Fantastic evening concert and such a transforming event @ Joshua Tree Retreat Center

We LOVE Bhakti Fest!! 
love, #krishna

Harvest Full Moon in Pisces

The full moon today Wednesday September 6, 2017 is at 13° Pisces. First harvest time of this new eclipse cycle. The astrology of the Harvest Full Moon suggests that it will have an impact on your hopes, dreams and on your love life. Full moons have long been associated with myths and legends and Native Americans gave a distinctive name to the one that occurred each month. September’s full moon is known as the Harvest Moon or Corn Moon because of it occurring at a time when crops were harvested and farmers could work by the light of the full moon. It most commonly occurs in September, but the name is given to the full moon closest to the autumn equinox, which can fall during October once or twice every decade.

 

The Moon is very happy in Pisces. (which also occurs in conjunction with Pisces ruler, Neptune) amplifying the energy of Pisces and making it even more important for us to be sweet, gentle, kind, and caring. This placement in natal charts has certainly brought out some powerful and influential women in the field of medical science and healing. The lunar lesson here is to tap into your own inner guru. Use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome challenges.

 

Sun opposite Moon “Virgo-Pisces” brings attention to your close relationships and how they are influenced. Others may try to bring you down by attacking your private life. The two weeks of this moon phase will be an especially sensitive time. Be very clear to yourself and to others about your intentions. Under the Full Moon we might feel especially thirsty for the waters of Spirit. Yet, we might also find that our thirst is being quenched through tidal waves of intuition, dreams, epiphanies, release of tension.

Every Full Moon marks an energetic peak, which shines a bright beam on whatever is coming full-circle in our Life, highlighting realizations, culminations, manifestations in the world of five senses; yet, with Pisces, it is subtle, holographic, and divine.

 

Revelations and realizations will arise from that lunar space that simultaneously permeates and transcends reality; that immaterial space where the voice of the heart echoes undisturbed. As the veil between worlds grows thinner, the intuitive knowledge and guidance that flickers from beyond will appear closer than ever, to the point of feeling more realistic than the so-called real world itself. The meta-physical plane, on the other hand, will be remarkably alive and vibrant with inspiration, and the limelight of the Full Moon will work as an ethereal channel to the Spirit world.

3 Ways To Gain Self-Esteem

The mind is at the root of most of our issues and problems, especially low self-esteem. Whenever you attempt to move forward in your life, it is the mind that sends the message of critical, judgmental and self-destructive thoughts. 
You are not your thoughts so no need to be afraid of upsetting your own mind. 

Daily meditation gives you a chance to witness how your mind pulls you here and there during your daily activities and in order to develop a relationship with your mind is becoming a witness to your thoughts and refusing to react or act until you are clear.

Trust. You have been given your own inner authority, your own inner compass that is guiding you through time and space.

How To Use a Crystal Ball

Fortune Teller and Crystal Ball go together. It’s the stereotypical image of a fortune teller a woman in a headscarf, waving and placing her hands over a crystal ball conjuring images of that tall, dark, and handsome soulmate– but a crystal ball is still to this day a very useful tool to have in your intuitive psychic box. Crystal ball gazing is accessible to everyone, and although challenging at first, it’s definitely something which improves with practice.

Choosing a Crystal Ball
Most crystal balls are made of glass, but you could be surprised to know that a good crystal ball doesn’t have to be clear – you can also use a crystal ball made of amethyst, smokey quartz or any other gemstone of your choice. You might wonder, how does this work, when you’re suppose to see images in a crystal ball? Well, it works because the images you see will be in your third eye or mind’s eye, not in the crystal ball itself . The crystal ball is a tool for focusing your mind and freeing your third eye.

 

Choose a crystal ball which appeals to you, but make sure it’s not too small. Bigger is definitely better, as it’s easier to concentrate. When you get your first crystal ball home, it’s a good idea to gently wash it in mild soapy water, just to clean away any excess energies. From this point on, only you handle it, and store it safely away when not in use.

Setting the Scene
In order to use the crystal ball, you need a quiet space where you will not be interrupted. If you already have a space for meditation, that would be best. Some people like to set the scene by cleansing the room with a smudge sage stick first, burning incense, lighting a candle, or playing spiritual music.

 

Starting to Gaze
When you are ready, Relax and hold hold the crystal ball for just a moment. When you have a specific question in mind, ask it in your mind now, or ask for you to be shown whatever will be helpful to you at this time.

Then place the ball onto its stand, or onto a dark cushion or cloth. And gaze. Literally.

Gaze and stare at the ball intently. Try not to blink or to look away. Hold your gaze. If you’re good at the Magic Eye pictures, you’ll be great at crystal gazing! It may take some time, but eventually you will get the hang of it.

Remember – these images are in your mind, clairvoyant images in your third eye, not in the crystal ball itself.

 

Interpreting What You Saw
Most crystal ball images are symbolic. If you saw a boat, what might that mean, given your current situation? If you saw the color purple, how does that apply? If you saw a name, do you know that person? Interpreting the images can be as tricky as getting them in the first place, but trust the process and this does become easier, you will find that images come faster, and are more relevant to your question and much more simple to interpret.

Where Are You Going? A Guide to What’s Next

There is no other step on the journey that happens as instantaneously as Surrender; but, it may take a very long time until we are ready to fully do so. When we do, our prior step of soul searching moves towards its end. Nearly simultaneously, the next step after Surrender – Healing – begins.

As we move deeper into the soul level of the journey, it becomes increasingly difficult to separate out the steps, for they overlap in a very non-linear way. Once we surrender, the opportunity is there for us to discover a higher power that is always available to assist us, we exercise our free will and allow it into our lives.

Surrender is about partnering with the Divine. It is about realizing that we are not alone and that we don't have to solve every dilemma by ourselves.

Indeed, as Einstein famously said, we can't solve problems at the same level of consciousness that created them. Surrender allows us to access a higher consciousness in order to transcend the problem and move to a new level entirely. Some call this grace. We call it empowerment.

Inner Work

Having done a lot of inner work (by means of cognitive therapy, music therapy, specialization therapy, regression therapy, healing, meditation, yoga, channeling) we thought we kind of knew our dark parts and had more or less transcended them. Well we were mistaken! It took a year for us to realise that it is wiser for us to embrace and make peace with the dark side, rather than fight it, because fighting it made it worse while accepting it, finally, gave a deep sense of relief and a new awareness of the miracle of life.
