Happy New Moon in Aries

TONIGHT: A time of new beginnings when we access the courage to take the leap of faith on a new adventure that offers excitement & new growth!

Fortunately, these new moon partners with Mercury, the planet of communication going direct, making it easier to create plans & form agreements without misunderstandings.

Aries New Moon gives a good time to commit to personal goals that express positive energies of the sign of the Ram. It is time to take action, try something new and innovative, and go at it with confidence; discover our own personal courage.

This is a strong lunar cycle under which to re-evaluate our relationship to ourselves. With this potent Aries energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives.

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and a New Moon in Aries is especially prime with an opportunity to discover the benefits of expressing ourselves with authenticity – expressing ourselves as we are. We might also find ways to learn how to rely on ourselves and to be happy about doing so, it could go a long way towards finding inner happiness when we know that we can be self-sufficient without blaming others for not helping us out.

Enjoy this New moon cycle as it is a time to revitalize ourselves through experiences that break the routine that involves doing something fresh and new.

Happy New Moon!!!

Bountiful, Blissful, Beautiful Sat Nam Fest

One of the most powerful archetypes that Yogi Bhajan shared in his lectures was the Ashtabhuja.

The Ashtabhuja is the archetype of woman as Goddess. She represents warmth, heat, energy and her body shines with a radiance like the glowing sun. She has ashta – eight, bhuja – arms.

In her seven hands she holds powerful symbols: a bow and arrow representing wisdom and awareness; the lotus which is a symbol of the feminine; a discus which is like a water wheel when it empties and spills forward creation; a scepter which when thrown is like a lightning bolt to dispel negativity or adversity; and a jar of the divine nectar of life. Her eighth hand holds a mala or prayer beads that give eight Siddhis or spiritual powers and nine Nidhis or treasures.

I was always intrigued by this Goddess of the Universe. She spoke to me and I felt her power every time I even spoke her name.

Let her be alive within each woman. That became my prayer. I knew Yogi Bhajan was asking each woman not to worship the Ashtabhuja, but to embody her.

My prayer on this day and forever is that as women we may embody this divine being throughout actions, words, and thoughts. And let these words of Yogi Bhajan resound in our hearts and spirit as he exalts our true power as a woman.

love, k:)

Every Sunset Brings the Promise of a New Dawn

In times of uncertain reality it is easy to become attached to negative outcomes.

It is a time of reaching deep into the soul and remembering beyond the linear.  If attachment to the timeline is the primary source of energy there may be difficulty in creating reality.

A moment of courage is required when all the energy of the environment is in chaos. Realize that this is but on chapter in the story of you and your energy.  No matter what occurs, the continuance of your soul is true.

Take the lessons of a harsh reality and put them to good use.  Appreciate the small moments of success as they will attract more if encouraged to do so.

Love those whom you cherish with great warmth. Those playing in this drama have participated with you in other moments.

Attempt to clean up the small pockets of chaos as they approach you.  It will help sooth the mass consciousness energy so that the whole environment may heal and evolve.

Maintain the fierceness of knowing who you are and the role you play in this environment.  Know that you are far more than just the face you see in the mirror.

Keep counsel with the truth.  The truth of your incarnation and that of your eternal soul.

Be a participant in this life not an observer. Create, expand, and grow, and make life happen.  Do not let life happen to you.

You are the creator.

You have the possibility of changing it all.

Have courage and just do it.

Flexible Spine Equals Flexible Mind

One of the most basic goals of Kundalini Yoga is to take care of the spine. Spinal flex offers a series of exercises (a kriya) to activate, align and loosen up the spine.

Lower back pain and upper back stress are some of the most common health complaints of adults. The best way to avoid backaches is to take care of your spine on a daily basis. There are no quick fixes for back pain, but spinal flexes is an effective maintenance program.

How to Do It:

Sit in easy pose. Grab the ankles. As you inhale powerfully, flex the spine forward, keeping the shoulders relaxed and the head straight. Do not move the head up and down. Exhale and relax the spine back. Continue rhythmically with deep breaths. As you inhale feel the energy go down the spine. As you exhale feel it come back up to the third eye. Mentally bring SAT down and NAM back up the spine.

Baisakhi Celebrations 2018

The Sikh community of Southern California came together for one of the largest Baisakhi celebrations at the Los Angeles Convention Center on April 8th 2018 that saw nearly 25,000 people attending the festivities full of devotion and exuberance.

The Sikh Dharma of Southern California along with the Guru Ram Das Ashram and Gurudwaras from Central and Southern California participated in some way through organizing langars, prayers, chants, decorations and the (nagar kirtan) float parade of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib.

The kirtan started at 7 a.m., which included spiritual and devotional songs and music performances by various groups like children’s, youth and women’s Jathas, as well as Ragi Kiran Jathas. Apart from the spiritual programs, the committee also organized a bazaar which had beautiful paintings, jewelry, books, keertan CDs and indian fashion clothes for sale.

The event included an honorary ceremony during which “Spirit of Baisakhi Awards” were presented to dignitaries for their contribution towards the Sikh community. These awardees were Congresswoman Judy Chu. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, and Internationally renowned teacher, author and spiritual leader Bhai Sahiba Bibiji Inderjit Kaur Khalsa, “Bibiji”, the beloved wife of Yogi Bhajan.

HAPPY BAISAKHI

Intuitive Wellness: Energetics

What is the difference between being indulgent and wasting energy plus time? Are we wasting energy when taking a nap because we’re tired instead of cleaning the house, or running an errand for someone? We can indulge in need for a nap because we’re tired and then assess whether we want to do the other things. This month shows that we’ll need to define that difference for ourselves now because this is about creating self value, energetic balance and using our energy resources wisely, ensuring that we are part of the collective group that is on the receiving end of our energetic attention.

With Mercury retrograde until April 16th, being indulgent and resurrecting things from the past will also come into play prominently.

Have you ever rushed out the door with a full list of things to do only to find you left your wallet at home or you see that your car has a flat tire and that changes all of your plans?

Sometimes the Universe reminds us that we need to take it easy, to slow down, take care of ourselves and fill our own energy tank on a daily basis.

Mercury retro is excellent for release, review, regenerate, refresh, re-think, re-consider, renew, resolve, and rest. Many ascension cycles are going to be ending this month in April and in May so that new ones can begin. While we believe that ascension happens in a straight line, a one-shot journey from destination A to B, it does not happen that way (which is why we can feel like we are not making any progress). Instead, we move through ascension in energetic cycles and once we have completion and closure with the one we’re in, the next one begins.

This month continues with resurrection and good questions to ask yourself would be, what can you resurrect in your life now?

Review your dreams and desires. Are any of them still valid for you? Is it time for some energetic house cleaning to remove the density that is clogging the drains of your dreams?

The energy of April has lots of positive energetics to fill your tank and make your dreams a reality.

Laws of the Universe

Thinking back on when my life

was a mess, I would blame the Universe. Over and over I would say, “Why me? What have I done to deserve this? It’s unfair. Why does this happen to me all the time?”

Then I read THE SECRET. The Secret introduced me to the Law of Attraction and I believed that this was how I could get the Universe to work for me rather than against me. I didn’t know much about the Law of Attraction. I didn’t really understand how it worked or how it was connected to the Universe. I thought the Universe was a space where if I sent out positive thoughts I would get positive results.

During the time of reading the Secret I lost my job, my car, my home, and my ex-husband at the time. I was devastated and I felt I was a failure. I gave up reading the Secret or thinking about the Law of Attraction. Its funny though, when you feel your life is at rock bottom and you come to a point where you have a choice – do I continue on with this downward spiral or do I try and figure a way out of this?

The easier option is to do nothing but I chose to try and figure a way out. I decided to put the Law of Attraction and the teachings of the Secret to the test. I set out to manifest my perfect job according to how I thought it should be done. I did find a job eventually but I took the job for all the wrong reasons. I knew this job was not for me the moment I went into the interview. I did not listen to my intuition. I had made a deal with the Universe to using the 3 step formula (ask, believe, and receive) from the Secret to manifest this perfect job into my life. This was the first job offer so this must be the one and I took it.

Three months later I quit the job. I found myself again, feeling like a failure, zero self-esteem, zero confidence and very little self-belief. Again I had to pull myself out of this deep hole and start over.

The question I asked myself was; “How could I get the Universe to listen and work for me rather than against me?”

I discovered that my relationship with the Universe now operates on these four laws – action, consequence, positive energy and the power of choice.

When you start working with the universal laws that resonate with you. You will find overtime that the Universe will respond and start working with you to achieve all that you desire in life. I began to see why some people including me never achieved positive results because the conscious thoughts which are positive are not aligned to the unconscious beliefs, habits and values. When you are not aligned in your mind, body and soul although your conscious mind desires greatness your subconscious will block it.
Once I understood how to work with the different energies that are the essential elements of setting and achieving goals I felt more confident about my abilities and myself. I also found that I began to have more positive experiences in my life and my relationship with the Universe improved. Over time I stopped bargaining with the Universe and became more open to receiving from the universe.

Events can happen in our lives that are traumatic and painful. It is times like these that it becomes very hard to be positive and upbeat about life especially when you feel so bad. There are also times in our life where we just feel sad or frustrated. I was spending too much time focusing on having to be positive and feeling good that I was not dealing with my feelings of sadness, grief, pain and fear.

I do agree that maintaining a positive attitude and outlook about life is powerful and you do have more energy and happiness in life. However ignoring your feelings of pain or sadness only results in you burying these feelings deep within you. These feelings are real. They will not stay buried for long and at some point they will surface.

It’s a fine balance to manage and process these feelings and not get drawn into the vortex of negativity. From my experience I’ve learned and like to share is that you spend time acknowledging your feelings but then move quickly to finding more positive things to focus on in your life. I found that by dealing with my feelings of sadness, pain and grief I became more self aware and more resilient. As a result my thoughts and energies were more aligned and my relationship with the Universe became stronger.

To the Universe, k:)

Tuesday Thoughts

No one knows more than you do what is truly in your highest good, when you are in that infinite connection to the Source of all life. Ask for this connection to be strong and clear.

It is very helpful to give thanks in advance for clear direction from the Universe. This creates a frequency of energy within and around you that allows the Angels to bring you assistance. An attitude of gratitude goes a long way to bring in and attract that which you most want in your life.

Be clear about the qualities you want, such as happiness, wisdom, love, prosperity, and peace. All of these qualities represent the energy of the universe that is always available to you. Be willing to receive on a level you have never believed possible. Allow the universal energy of the Archangels to work in your life. When you come from this higher level of intention, you will begin to sense within you the vibration of your highest truth.

love, k 🙂
