Happy New Year 2023

Happy New Year. What a remarkable time it is. It moves so slowly when we are waiting for something special and it moves so fast when we are not looking. 

I love this time of the New Year because it signals A New Beginning, a New Start. All of life expresses in cycles. Life itself is a cycle. And when a cycle begins anew, there is a freshness in the air and a new sense of hope. 

Hope is something we must never give up. Yet it is only the beginning. After hope comes faith or belief, and after faith comes knowing. 

Hope is the beginning of the Mind’s Journey to Awareness. When we hope for something, we are saying that we are not sure that it will or can happen, but we wish that it would. When we have faith in something, we are saying that we believe that it will or can happen, yet there is still some element of wonderment otherwise faith would not be necessary. When we know about something, we are saying that we are certain that it can and will happen. There is no doubt whatsoever because there is no way it cannot happen. We hold this information as a knowing. We stand in awareness of something, positive. 

This is what the New Year offers you. A chance to start over. A chance to move from Hoping to Believing to Knowing. We begin with a knowing that the Universe is real and that Life is on our side. Everything is working toward my highest good — and the highest good of all Life. Our opportunity is to move into Gratitude at every occurrence. 

Thank you, 2022 for everything that happened. And thank you 2023 for everything that will happen. Happy New Year everyone! 

Peace and Love,

Kelly 🙂 

Intuition During the Holidays

Intuition is always with us, it is part of our human nature and mind. Working with your intuition and continually practicing using it will strengthen your ability to engage it when you need it.

Sometimes the holidays take us away from our usual routine, which is a good thing, it keeps our minds on our toes with the opportunity to experience something new. Just enjoying your physical senses, seeing, feeling, and hearing the holiday sights, and sounds without any thoughts or judgment exercises your awareness of your intuitive side. See what it recalls in you. This is how intuition comes to us, it pops up and is plain without criticism and just presents itself as it is. You may also enjoy yourself more to take this mini break from the hustle and rush of the holiday season.

You can also use holiday get-togethers to intuitively connect to someone. Take the time when conversing with friends for the family to receive not only what you hear when they speak, but what you feel and sense. Allow yourself to be the witness, the observer, and pay attention to yourself as the listener. You may be surprised at what pops up inside you when you are just present during the conversation and tuned in. This allows you to absorb so much more of what someone is sharing with you beyond their words.

When you’re shopping for a gift during the holidays you can use your intuition to help you choose the best one. Sometimes you may not be sure of what someone would like if you don’t know them well, or you know them too well it may be challenging to know that perfect gift. Here’s how you can use your intuition to help. Say you’re in the store and shopping for a clothing accessory for a friend but you’re not quite sure which color or style they would like. Among the choices in front of you, imagine your friend wearing each one and ask your intuition in your mind which one, choose the good-feeling ones, and use your eyes and your heart.

There are so many wonderful holiday displays, pictures, photographs, and sights that are a feast for your eyes. When you look pay attention to how it makes your heart sing or stir up some wonderful emotions. It’s a great intuition exercise! This all allows your intuition mind to give you impressions. You’ll probably intuitively discover things you didn’t realize before!

Enjoying the holidays is a fun way to exercise your intuition.

Third Eye Meditation

Ajna or third-eye chakra is the sixth chakra in the body. Ajna translates to “command” and is considered the eye of intuition. It is the power that has to do with recognition, imagination, visualization, dreaming, and perception. When a person has developed a strong Ajna, one can see the unseen and come from a deep inner state of knowing. You will sense when the Ajna is unbalanced it can result in rigid/one-way thinking, insensitivity, poor concentration, denial, and inability to see the future. Many people are trained at an early age to not trust their own intuition. This could have been from parents or peers who made you believe that your senses were not valid, which created doubt.

The Ajna also has to do with our perception. We all have perceptions and this is created from our upbringing, environments, and our beliefs. When perception is mistaken for intuition, we can get into trouble. Perception isn’t always reality. It is our limited reality. To balance the Ajna, we must challenge our perception and always seek reality no matter how uncomfortable it is.

what-to-do-when-you-feel-stuck

Strengthening and balancing the Ajna is a process but can be done and requires daily meditation to function optimally. The results are very subtle and when they are not paid attention to, they can go unnoticed. The important thing when coming back into balance with the Ajna is to learn to trust your intuition and what you see in meditation. You will begin to know the difference between thoughts, perception, and intuition.

Ajna is a true gift and to have a fully functioning one will make you limitless. Check out this Kriya called “To See the Unseen” This specific technique helps with gaining Intuitive Vison. And everyone will have their own experience but this experience turned out to be a  a visual intuitive experience.

To See the Unseen Yoga Kriya

Sit in easy pose with the right arm out in front parallel to the floor with the elbow straight, but not locked. The palm to the right hand is facing up and slightly cupped as if catching rain. The left hand is in Surya Mudra (ring finger touching the thumb) with the elbow at the aide and forearm facing out. Close your eyes and focus on the tip of the chin.

Strongly press the tip of the tongue to the palate behind the teeth Mentally chant, “Wahe Guru” in silence. Breath long and deep. Practice for 11 minutes. To End – Make panther claws (bend the fingers into the mounds of the hand). Inhale and turn to the left, then back to the center and exhale. Then inhale and turn to the right, then back to the center and exhale. Sat Nam.

When the Third Eye is activated we can command our own mind and command a Destiny. To see with crystal clarity. It’s been said that one’s Destiny is written on one’s forehead, more accurately, when the Ajna is activated we can live our life with an overview and navigate easily towards where our Destiny lies. To crystal clarity, Kelly Krishna Dunn-Cohen

Surf’s Up

Surfing is Fun, Fun, Fun. The enjoyable atmosphere that includes the sunshine, the beach, and warm water adds to the fun. Although learning to surf can be challenging because it takes practice to hone the skill of surfing, those frustrating moments are overshadowed by all of the fun moments you’ll experience.

Yoga is a Great Practice for Dancers

People today turn to yoga, dance, and other physical activities in order to improve their physical wellbeing. Dance, as yoga, helps individuals control their body weight, and improves their well being.

However, from my personal experience as a ballet dancer with 20 years of training, dance can sometimes be painful for the body and actually increase the levels of anxiety. When I turned to yoga, I realized that every dancer, especially those at a professional level should try it.

Yoga Makes You Love Your Body

Dancers can sometimes be convinced that if they do not have the ideally thin body, they can never be successful. So as a result, they refuse to accept their natural body weight and put their health at the risk.

However, yoga teaches practitioners that they do not need to have a particular body shape (thin, flexible, tall, short, etc.) in order to do yoga, because yoga is for everyone! Dancers can learn to love their bodies every single minute of the day through yoga.

Yoga Connects You with Your Body

Dancing and competitive sports can sometimes negatively affect individuals’ body image and body satisfaction and lead them to unhealthy habits and behaviors, such as eating disorders.

Since yoga is not competitive, there is no wrong way to do it. It teaches individuals to listen to their body (heart-rate, feelings, sensations, breathing).

In other words, yoga connects the mind, body, and spirit and can definitely teach dancers how to listen to and respect their bodies and physical needs.

All in all, yoga can definitely benefit dancers and help them increase their performance skills, while keeping up their levels of wellbeing.

Benefits of Mindfulness

The benefits of yoga and mindfulness are far reaching. More than improving flexibility and strength, yoga and mindfulness impact the social, emotional, mental and physical health of everyone who practices.

Give it a try. Get on your mat, take a deep breath, and take advantage of the many benefits of yoga and mindfulness.

Restore

In this eclipse season you may feel more vulnerable as aspects of yourself that have been suppressed for healing and integration. You will find yourself becoming more aware of the nature of your relationships, your own needs and how you may be giving your energy and power away unnecessarily. It is best not to criticize yourself and to rather give yourself the compassion and support you need. Be mindful of your own personal energy and take time to nurture yourself.

The incoming energies require us to remain in a space of fluidity despite any feelings of uncertainty. Fluidity allows us to remain open to all possibilities and opportunities. As we move into the month of June which is a space of inner stillness that will help to stabilize both our thoughts and our emotions. When we are stable and centred we are able to let go of our attachments and become more receptive to the insights, understanding and clarity we now need.

Infinite Blessings,

K ❤
