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.

Good Vibrations

When you are in a high vibration you can perceive your guidance. When you’re in a lower vibration you’ll match up with people in the world who are in a similar state. When there is a vibrational mismatch, conditions can shift and you’ll be guided elsewhere.

Your vibration alone allows or blocks all you desire. Make a list of desires and make sure you can feel really good about each one. If not, back up a little bit and create them a little bit at a time until your successful mini-manifestations show you that the Universe cares, and the heavens will always work, in every way, to guide you on the path to your dreams.

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.

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 ❤

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.

love, k 🙂

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.

Bridal Everyday:Wedding Guide

We are fascinated with how the decision is made of what to wear on your wedding day, and so in the spirit of all things, bridal, we share our dress story with you today!

Everyone approaches their Special Day differently, so the fashion and style decisions could not be more different for different brides. This was a time ultimately our top priority was to make amazing memories, and to start the dress journey with an initial visit to a local Indian bridal shop, BEAUTY Dreams Collections. Several shapes and styles helped narrow down what we were looking for. We narrowed our focus to a red wedding dress instead of a white one, and we planned on having an Indian wedding which it is common for the bride to wear a gorgeous red dress for Anand Karaj. We found the dress during our second appointment at Dreams Collections in Little India, in Artesia California.

 

Indian Bridal Outfit

The most memorable part of an Indian wedding is witnessing the beauty and elegance of the Bride on her special day. With all the sparkle glitz and glamour going on around her, the Bride maintains to be the central focal point of the wedding day. The Bridal Saree or Lengha is decorated with embroidery and intricate designs, making for an eye-catching and exquisite piece of design.

 

Different regions in India require the Bride to wear certain jewelry or wrap her saree in a specific manner. It is common for Bride’s to place Bindi’s, circular diamond, red or white , above the eyebrows, however the area between the eyebrows remains empty until the wedding ceremony; the Groom places Sindhoor, red vermillion, here during the wedding ceremony. The Bride’s hands and feet are decorated in Mendhi, completing a head to toe transformation for the blissful day.

 

 

Punjabi Bridal Suit

The Sikh wedding ceremony is known as Anand Karaj which means blissful union ... Most women will wear traditional Punjabi dress in bright colors or gorgeous crimson red. Punjabi Brides wear a Salwar Kameez, an extremely opulent pant suit, or lengha. Traditionally, Punjabi Brides are said to wear gold jewelry, however with changing times various styles of jewelry as been adapted. The bride wears white and dark red bangles made of ivory known as Chooda.
In Gujurati weddings, Brides typically wear a Saree however it is tied with the Palav, the rest of the Saree material that isn’t wrapped around the Bride’s waist, facing the front.

South Indians on the other hand wear different type of Saree made of silk material with gold bordered lining, a more traditional take on Bridal wear.

 

Hindu Bridal Wear

The traditional Hindu Bride is said to wear a red outfit symbolically referencing the planet Mars. According to astrology, Mars is the planet in charge of marriages, representing prosperity and fertility. Bridal attire is the bride draping her Saree which is wrapped around the waste whereas a lengha is a skirt that you can slip on.

 

Outstanding Outfits for Ordinary to Extraordinary Days!

Wednesday Wisdom

We all are looking at one another through the windows of our own perspectives. Simply trying to figure out who we are in the mirrors of life and by learning what resonates and what does not. 

All of us have the power to live in a very expansive and beautiful reality, or choose to live in a very limited, contracted, one way street narrow reality. 

When we become the observers of life, rather than its judges and when we witness what is going on around you with wonder, you own your own perspective, without having to make anyone else’s wrong.
In this nature, we can observe human beings without any judgment. We can love the light within all people, while not liking the personalities and behaviors of some. This world is an amazing melting pot of diversity in the great play of creation. It was meant to be that way. The light that lives within  takes many takes many different forms upon this planet. Love that light. Love that it is expressed in so many different ways. Then allow yourself, without judgment to simply move towards those with whom you resonate with and move away from those you don’t. In this fashion, you free your soul to just be and to find its natural fit in the greater stage of life.
We are spiritually free when every soul, including yourself, has the right to just be. Our guidance system asks us to release any need to cling to what we have always known. The very process of letting go helps us to feel more aligned with our Soul’s Highest Reality in every moment. This alignment creates a more fulfilling and purposeful connection with Divinity working in us so we can trust our intuition more freely.
