Space of Balance

Flow with the incoming energies and trust in your inner wisdom.

The universe always works in perfect balance. When we place ourselves in its natural flow we move into a space of balance. However, before that occurs all that is out of balance within ourselves needs to be addressed. Circumstances in our lives are highlighting any imbalance creating a profound clearing and purging of the old.

At this time, as the sun is moving from Libra into Scorpio, the energy is being re-orientated within the energy and power of your soul. The outer manifestation of your life will transform expanding your horizons beyond what you have previously known and experienced.

Make time to explore your intuition and follow the guidance that arises. You will find a deeper understanding of your journey emerges allowing you to clarify the choices you now have. Trust in your inner wisdom.

Pure Potential

We live in a field of Pure Potential. There is so much opportunity waiting for us to acknowledge, but we cannot see clearly until we are willing to open the door to the possibilities for Creative Solutions.

Full merging with the Divine means I align myself with the spaciousness of Infinite Intelligence where miracles occur. To do this, I need to create a dedicated space where I can go to pray and have a quiet time to focus on the spiritual truths that exist beyond appearances. It does not have to be elaborate, but it does require my commitment to take the time to raise my vibrational frequencies so I can begin to see from a heightened perspective.

This meditation time soothes my nervous system; my calm deep breathing centers me, and the Infinite Wisdom within my heart begins to feed me with new ideas and Creative Solutions.

I am demonstrating a new willingness to ask for what I truly want to experience and invite the support of those beings of Light who are always with me. This is called prayer. Prayer can help us acknowledge and accept our experience, while creating a focus on new possibilities and miraculous outcomes. Here is my prayer for today:

Universe, I am willing to open my mind and trust that I am always divinely inspired and guided in every moment. I am grateful to know that when I open my heart to love, I allow new life to spring from within me, creating new beginnings on every level. I dedicate to you my talents and abilities that they be used as service for the highest good. I am open to full merging with my most illumined and exalted inner being.

I turn my worries over to the Angels of Divine Light and trust in this process to bring me the clarity I need to see Creative Solutions in every area of my life. I open the way to receive miracles in my way of thinking, behaving and belief system. Please help me remember we are not alone and to know in my heart that I am being divinely guided at this moment and at every moment in life.

Love, Kelly Krishna ❤

New Moon Grateful Heart

Adding a thankful vibration into your life can create amazing changes from the deepest level to the most superficial. Everything in life is a vibration.

Gratitude is energy. It is the energy used to express our thanks, giving an offering to the universal energies. When gratitude, or thanks is given the Universe hears and feels this heart felt energy and then yields to give us more of what we are expressing.

This is when the Spiritual Law, The Law of Vibration, known as the The Law of Attraction comes into play. The Law of Vibration states: “Nothing rest, everything moves, everything vibrates. This law tells us that the whole universe is but a vibration, operating at different frequencies and movements, and yes, even you are a pure energy vibrating at a different frequency. Your thoughts, emotions are all vibrational energy the universe is responding to.

New Moon Blessings,

Love, Kelly Krishna ❤

Tuesday Thoughts

Divine Love is inherent within all things. Purposefully coming back into our centers and allowing ourselves to see this as our Truth is a powerful spiritual practice.

Awakening within us all is a connection to the divinity that is the deepest part of our true nature. We are here in this time on Earth to blend our human selves with the most Divine Love that exists in all the Universe.

It is very encouraging when we remember that this Love is always present, guiding us through lives that are changing more quickly than we can comprehend. I know that when I turn away from outward circumstances, come back into my heart and pray for it, there is a Peace that enfolds me in surprising ways.

I have absolute Faith that we are not alone and that we are being led through life’s changes by a Love that never ends.

Love, Kelly Krishna ❤

National CBD Day

TODAY on August 8th, National CBD Day recognizes the natural hemp product everyone’s asking for!

Over the years, hemp-derived CBD (cannabidiol) has made quite a name for itself in the wellness world. Since a growing number of products – from tinctures to topicals – hit the marketplace, CBD continues to be shoppers’ favorite option for holistic alternatives. As an added bonus, CBD does not possess the psychoactive properties of THC.
Another advantage of CBD is that it is naturally sourced and extremely versatile. Try a tincture, capsule, rubbing it on your skin, or bathing in it. You can even give it to your pets!

The hemp plant has withstood the test of time and politics; herbalists have long used hemp to promote wellness, while farmers have grown it as a source of fiber to make clothes and rope. But in the 20th century, governments came down on all things cannabis and everything related to it.

Nowadays, political leaders recognize what scientists long knew: properly sourced CBD won’t get you high. Since 2018, the federal government has defined hemp, which has little or no THC in it (less than .03% to be exact), as a legal plant that is distinct from marijuana. Therefore, hemp-based products like CBD oil don’t fall under national anti-drug laws.

#NationalCBDDay
Seek the powerful properties of CBD and experience the wealth of natural relief and recovery. Join others seeking natural support on National CBD Day, and get proactive about your wellness regimen.

National CBD Day is a great day to bring awareness to what CBD (cannabidiol) brings to millions of people annually.

In good health,

Kelly Krishna ❤

Rising Lotus Yoga Santa Clarita

I love this cute Yoga center in Santa Clarita. I know we all are practicing social distancing but felt like sharing another writing article I wrote for LA Yoga Magazine and sharing this great yoga studio.

Charming Old Town Newhall has a rich history. It’s a community whose present has just become richer with Rising Lotus Yoga Santa Clarita.

Rising Lotus Yoga, the vibrant studio located in Sherman Oaks and co-founded by Daniel Stewart and Claire Hartley in 2006, is expanding with an oasis for practice in the heart of the Santa Clarita Valley. Rising Lotus Yoga Santa Clarita Co-Owners Claire Hartley and Santa Clarita native Heather Riggen have come together to create this space that promotes the unity and awareness inherent in yoga. They exude enthusiasm with their mission to provide a yoga experience that is joyful, immersive, and creates a sense of ease for students.

Classes at Rising Lotus Yoga Santa Clarita

Claire and Heather are both long-time dedicated yoga practitioners whose want to share yoga and build community. Some of the classes offered at Rising Lotus Yoga Santa Clarita include: Urban Zen, which features Reiki as well as the use of essential oils; several Restorative yoga classes to quiet and relax the mind and body; and the studio’s signature Flow Yoga class. In the Flow class, students move from pose to pose with variations that encourage deep strength and a greater range of motion.

Rising Lotus Yoga Santa Clarita is full of good vibes and a welcoming spirit. The space features practice-friendly bamboo floors, sunny classrooms — named the Shiva and Ganesha rooms, and a mission-driven retail store. Stop by and participate in Rising Lotus’ invitation to experiment new practices, shift perspectives, and develop strength, and even greater happiness.

As their tagline asserts, “Let Joy Rise!”

Krishnamacharya

Today, Nov. 18, is Tirumalai Krishnamacharya’s birthday.

The teacher of not only Pattabhi Jois, aka Guruji, and B.K.S. Iyengar, he’s another who seems to prove that practice, practice, practice, and long life is coming.

Krishnamacharya (the grandfather of ALL yoga that you see out there these days) was born November 18, 1888.

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!

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.

Check out our online jewelry boutique. We feature three different types of malas.
