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 are disappointed beyond words over the death of Louise. L Hay. As well as millions of people worldwide, Louise L. Hay had a profound influence on many of her fellow Hay House authors.
A teacher, mentor, author and motivational speaker, Louise L. Hay will be missed by many and is irreplaceable.
Heaven has a new angel — Thank you for all of the support and inspiration you gave to us over the years, and for the remarkable work you did on this planet.
While we are sad at her passing, We know that her soul is now free to rest, explore, and teach. She truly IS Divine Light.
We are saying affirmations for her and her family and know she will be shining down upon us all from the other side.
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.
We can still feel the powerful New Moon that took place on July 23rd 2017. It is a new cycle that helps to establish our potential and to reconnect with something bigger than us. It's only then will we feel complete and stable whatever happens.
The lunar energy makes us realize our emptiness or to fill a void within is just a disconnection with everything. By filling this gap it's best to recognize who you are and who you are not and you can discover that it is only the mind that makes you feel the void.
The moon asks you silently "Would you like peace?"
First step is trust, and when you trust leaving behind control, you must change your attitude to gratitude. Your mission will be revealed once you find out who you are.

The Law of Attraction and its magnetic power reaches out into the Universe and attracts other thoughts that are vibrationally like it… and brings: Your attention to subjects, your activation of thoughts, and Law of Attraction’s response to those thoughts is responsible for every person, every event, and every circumstance that comes into your experience. All of these things are brought into experience through a powerful magnet as they are vibrational matches to your own thoughts.
You get the essence of what you are thinking about, whether it is something you want or something you do not want. It could be unsettling at first, but in time, it is expectation that you will come to appreciate the consistency, and the absoluteness of this powerful Law of Attraction.
Once you understand this Law, and begin to focus & pay attention to what you are giving your attention to, you regain control of your own life experience. And with that control you will again remember that there is nothing that you desire that you cannot achieve, and nothing that you do not want that you cannot release from your experience.
When when we’re in that place of negativity, we’re only attracting more of the same. We’re unwittingly sending out the signal of struggle, disappointment and negativity to the universe – and, it matches up with more of the same.
Although it’s probably the last thing most would like to do in moments of setbacks, pain, disappointment – forgiveness can actually shift all that. It helps us let go of what’s keeping us attracting more and more negativity, so we can shift into a better future.
Recognizing Law of Attraction and the absolute correlation between what you have been thinking and feeling and what is manifesting in your life experience—causes you to be more aware of the stimulation of your own thoughts. You begin to notice that your own thoughts may be stimulated from something you read, or watch on television or hear or observe from someone else’s experience. And once you see the effect that the Law of Attraction has upon these thoughts that begin small and grow larger and more powerful with your attention to them, you will feel a desire within to begin to direct your thoughts to more of the things that you do want to experience.
All around the world, Australia is renowned for its beaches, and it isn’t hard to see why. With some of the longest stretches of sand-covered coastline in the world, Oz’s beaches are not only plentiful but also of an almost universally high quality. Aussies take care of and take pride in their beaches, keeping them generally clean and pollution-free, but with so many to choose from, how can you determine which beaches are a cut above the rest? We love all of them!
