Magic of Love

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.

Greatest Gift

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.

Inner Spirit

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.

The Benefits and Uses of Mala Beads

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.

Vibration of Love

When you live your life from a vibration of love that love has to flow first of all through you to then be expressed towards others. Therefore, when you accept love in all its forms, you are accepting the love of your divinity.

Your authentic self is you expressing as your soul. As you listen to your intuition you are listening to your soul or source. When you are authentic, you are talking, living, creating from a place that resonates with you and helps you to feel good. When you are in balanced alignment, you feel good! When you feel good, you are authentic in your life and  how you express yourself.

Spirit Travel Plans

There is purpose for everything in your world, everyone, and everything in your lives. There is value in the situations you consider good, and in the situations you consider bad. Love is attempting to surface in the kind people and in those who aren’t so kind. Everything and everyone you come across serves a purpose in your life. Every encounter offers you a chance to grow.

Before we were born, our soul came in with what we call Travel Plans.

You had lessons you wanted to learn, contributions you wanted to make. Above all you wanted to reconnect with love, compassion, joy, and various qualities of the Divine. Some wanted to learn to embrace and share those qualities. Some of you wanted to learn to receive them. Some of you simply wanted to embrace love in any form.

No matter what you planned, you have free will. You can choose to enjoy your life and look for the love, or you can choose to be victimized by it. However, when you know that everyone and everything is here to help you reconnect to love – either by inspiration or challenge. You can, instead, ask yourself, What can I learn from this?

How can I grow?

What do I need to do in this moment to treat myself with love and kindness?

How can I also be honest with myself and kindly honest with all involved?

In any circumstance realize you are here to learn, to grow, to love self, to feel your connection with God. As you embrace this more fully and consciously you can grow, even through the tough times with greater ease, joy, grace, and loving guidance.

love, k 🙂

Leo New Moon

Right on August 1st, the Leo New Moon invites you to take love seriously, because self-confident and demanding Venus is close to the Sun and Moon.

The highlight of this phase of optimism could be the Full Moon of August 15th, when the Sun and Venus are in intimate embrace opposite the unbiased and open-minded Aquarius Moon.

This quality of time offers real opportunities to fundamentally put some things in order. The results of current actions will have a lasting effect on the future.

Three Reasons Why To Attend The Sat Nam Festival 

Here are 3 Top reasons why we are  looking forward to attending the Sat Nam Fest: 

1) MUSIC: World renowned musicians such as Snatam Kaur, Mirabai Ceiba, Simrit, Ajeet Kaur, Aykanna, and Jai-Jagadeesh all encompass the healing power of the sound current Naam. They perform passionate concerts that uplift and inspire. 


2) LIKE-MINDED SOULS: The Kundalini community is one of the strongest yoga communities in the world; practitioners deeply connect with each other through yoga ​practices, sadhana, and seva (selfless service). During the festival chanting the mantras and practicing the kriyas together, personal individual efforts are amplified to create a beautiful and powerful healing group energy. 

3) YOGA: Sat Nam Fest West expects to see more than 1,000 people this year. With 3 stages, there will be opportunity for everyone to jump into the vortex. You’ll see a lot of people wearing white, but there’s no dress code. Wearing white is a part of the technology of Kundalini yoga. It boosts your aura and helps you feel radiant. Spirit Voyage suggests bringing something to cover your head during meditation, but it’s not required. It’s best to wear what brings you joy and elevates you! 

Gurdwara, you will need to cover your head as a part of the tradition. Covering the head helps to raise the Kundalini energy up the spine, makes meditation more effective, keeps you grounded when you’re doing a TON of powerful pranayama and chanting, it makes many of us feel great! Kundalini yoga can be done by beginners and yogis at any level. There are often things that a beginner won’t be able to do…but you just do the best you can. If you can’t get into a pose, don’t worry… just do your best. Kundalini yoga is very non-competitive and is just about your personal, private experience. You definitely will be able to enjoy the yoga in Ramdesh’s relaxation workshop with Ashana. She’ll be doing lots of gentle movement and lie-flat-on-your-back relaxing gentleness. But most of all jump in and have fun no matter which class you opt for! 

Pregnancy and Yoga

The yogis see pregnancy as the gift of giving life. Yogi Bhajan said that marriage is the highest yoga and children are your karmic teachers. The relationship with your partner is your highest spiritual practice and your baby will become the teacher from whom you will learn the lessons you need to move forward on your spiritual path.

“The purest thing in the world is the heart of the mother… It can move the universe. It can cause an effect beyond limitation.” –Yogi Bhajan

Adi Shakti is the woman’s primal energy force. The deep desire to give birth and love is biological and spiritual. Some women do not desire have children and that is fine too. Everyone should have its own opinions, and preferences. I always believe that if you want to be respected, listened, and understood, you have to respect, listen, and understand first. Understand doesn’t mean agree with others opinions, but to see the point in their ideas and thoughts.

For some woman the whole pregnancy is a reminder of their past unresolved traumas, and there are many women who pass through this.

It is not necessary that you should be married, you should be pregnant, or should be this or that. The most important part of a woman is that she should have enough spirit, enough flow of spirit, enough dialogue we call it, that she can maintain her grace and her respect.

– Yogi Bhajan

If you are planning to have a baby to meditate on it. It is good to visualize yourself with the pregnant belly. This will make you more receptive. You can attract it and manifest it.

Meditation is the direct relationship between you (the finite) and the infinite. There are specific yogic exercises, chants, and meditations to stimulate the navel (abdominal area).

There are some women who struggle with the pain of infertility, or difficulty to become pregnant or maintain pregnancy. This can be very painful and traumatic. Definitely you should be in contact with a doctor to discuss all the different alternatives.

Meditation will always keep you more emotionally stable when facing challenging moments.

According to the philosophy of Yoga, the soul of the child enters the body of the fetus at 120 days. It is highly recommended that the mother practice meditation and take excellent care from the 120 days since conception.

Everything inside and outside of the mother will affect the baby. The state of mind that she is in, her thoughts, the situations, the spoken words, the foods she eats, everything!

Once the baby is born the mom will become the first role model of the child.

“A mother freely teaches values and virtues to every child for their prosperity, peace of mind, and consciousness. Let us honor our mother for our own integrity and happiness. May we learn to serve and protect our Mother Earth with an open heart.”—Yogi Bhajan

Yoga and meditation can help to prevent conditions related to stressful situations. The practice of Yoga decreases the body’s oxygen needs and slows down breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure for those moms suffering from high blood pressure.

The repetition of mantras can get rid of negative mental states and uplift you. The different yogic breathing techniques can help you in labor. They can also balance your hormones in a time when you need it the most.

Always, always, always!! Before you engage in any exercise program, consult your doctor.

If you have always been very athletic, you should plan to lower the intensity and with time as your body grows plan to modify your exercises for the pregnancy ones.

Walking is one of the most recommended exercises for pregnant women. It massages the internal organs. Ideally it is recommended that you walk 2 to 5 miles every day.

You can also add the mantra SA TA NA MA. Chant a word per step. Chanting mantras is like touching divine universal cords. You bring the benefits of that mantra while balancing the glandular system. It also takes care of erase those negative thoughts.

You can also join a pregnancy Yoga class where you know the exercises will be exactly what you need for your pregnancy. There is a saying that says that no one will understand you better during your pregnancy than another pregnant woman. They also hold women workshops, pregnancy teacher trainings, and other wonderful and interesting things.

Water is another element essential for you during this special time. Make sure you drink lots.

Other good exercises during pregnancy are inside the pool or the ocean:

  • Walk backward and forward inside of a pool or the ocean.
  • Slow bicycling is also very helpful. Try this by placing your back against the wall of the pool, place the arms at each side outside of the pool, and relax the head on the side of the pool. Then start bicycling slowly.

These water exercises feel great because they relieve the weight of gravity off the joints.

As the time passes, the baby grows and the body starts changing. Good posture is key to relieving future pains. The perfect posture is to open the legs at hip distance so that the belly is centered and the weight is shared. Lower the tale bone, lengthen the spine, open the chest, and relax the shoulders down.

It is very important to stay relaxed while pregnant.
