BREATH & RECHARGE
H A P P I N E S S: How much joy +playfulness are you allowing into your day? You can be the happiest person you know by not sweating the small things and brining a curiously open mind to the bigger things. Go get your love, go get your peace, go get your joy it's all waiting for you
It may sound like the most simple thing in the world yet many of us forget to give ourselves the permission we need to take a break and recharge our energy or as i like to call it, our soul battery.
To give, give, give and give even more is to put out without taking more in and this depletes your soul battery. It drains you, runs you down and robs you of the joy and happiness that you could be experiencing in your life.
I know this rat race well, I was in the same race when I worked in the world of Corporate America and they teach you to work long hours because we "gotta get it done, and it has to be all done today!" Reality is, sitting at your desk and having your lunch isn't really bringing your the happiness and joy that you deserve everyday. It especially doesn't help you to recharge and step away from the work you are doing to allow even a brief moment of play to enter your day.
Running on low battery is no longer necessary, because now we know how to live differently and can make a conscious choice to design our lifestyle a new. Taking the time to rest, renew, and refresh isn't a waste of your time-its how you recharge and show up even more powerfully and present to your work, your relationship, your kids.
Actions that emerge from from an energized source are easier, go further, accomplish more. Let your work and love come from a vital spirit.
Take a nap in the grass, read a book. Drink your coffee/tea outside. Listen to a song with your full presence and close your eyes to be let the vibrations move your soul. See a movie. Walk in nature. Go on a long drive with the windows down. Meditate. Dance. Take photos of things that touch your heart. Its time to S L O W D O W N and let more precious moments of happiness, love, and laughter into your day.
There is a quote I love by Carl Jung that sums up this topic for me-
" Sexuality & Spirituality are pairs of opposites that need each other."
Lets talk about love, sex, and connection for a moment can we? There is so much magic, juiciness, and expansion that takes place within deep intimacy.
There are also the shadows of doubt, fear and uncertainty that can stand in the way of you experiencing this profound level of intimate connection with one another.
Intimacy doesn't have to mean sex, in fact, the deepest level of intimacy occurs before any of that starts simply with the breath and energy behind your breathing. Ever had a moment when you were sitting down somewhere, enjoying yourself, then someone comes and sit next to you and suddenly you feel like they have entered into your space and are way too close for comfort? That person is entering into your energetic field which can cause you to feel either more or less connected to this person.
We can get close to someone and feel them more deeply by simply tuning into their energy field, looking them directly in the eyes while holding a gaze, and breathing love into the space between your bodies.
I find that when I bring in the art of joyfully living, I experience more blissful, loving intimate connection in my daily life.
How can you create more intimacy?
Here are a few tips: Hug someone with your full presence for 1 minute and allow the chemicals to be released in both of your bodies, creating an instant biochemical connection.
Sit across from a friend or a lover and set aside 5 minutes. Begin with an Eye gaze where you look deeply into each other eyes without looking away or filching- This is called soul gazing-and look for the loving essence within. Place your right hand on their heart and allow them to do the same. Close your eyes and begin to breath together in harmony with your breathe syncing in motion and flow.
Work with the 5 senses: Taste, touch, smell, sight, and sound- Playing with the senses activates the pleasure response system in your body opening your receptors which allows you to enjoy more of what you are receiving. When you are in a state of receiving you are creating more intimacy between you and the giver.
Majestic Radiance comes from a life and body filled with loving connection to self, the divine, and others.
Love is a funny thing, you can get caught up in the whimsical magic or the dark storm of the powerful force that your ego brings to it.
Pure love, the unconditional kind of of love; has no story, agenda or boundaries. It is always flowing like an endless well.
Trying to control how much water is flowing from the well, the way the water moves and the direction in which it is going is what stops the flow. Making it my job to turn the wellspring on and off and focused on where it was not flowing had been my biggest trapping and pattern with my relationship to love.
Love is always ready for union, partnership, & intimacy but are we really ready for a relationship with love? I felt my heart race, the tension in my thighs building, the speeding up of my breathe as I asked myself this question. "Am I ready for a new relationship with this universal unconditional always present love...." My soul answered back..."yes I am."
The old belief that my relationship with love had to explored with my partner, needing the safety of the container of a committed romantic relationship so I can work on my "stuff" with my partner to deepen my connection to love was a story had been telling myself for years. That I need a partnership and a mirror to help me evolve in my understanding of this caliber of loving. The truth unraveled itself, could I handle all my own stuff and was I ready to look deeper into the mirror of unconditional love?
What is being asked of me now, as love whispers in my ear like the most present and sensual lover, is to learn how to make love for loves sake and take the time to slow down and get to know this new love. Build a relationship and learn what it likes, how it plays and desires to be expressed through me as a vessel.
Its not when a relationship ends, a partner leaves to travel the world, someone breaks your heart by choosing a different direction for their life does love also leave you. Oh no darling that is just the illusion that I mentioned earlier that we must stay away from. That is not love.
That is an old story that we know far too well that has always leaves us feeling in the role of the victim and then one day, like today, we realize that when love is involved in every word, action, and intention there are no victims.
~All for & in love~
When I have a desire, it can be on my mind all day long. Thinking about it keeps it top of mind yes, no doubt about it, and it can also put too much pressure when your desire hasn't manifested yet. Let me put it this way; you are about to perform for a group, you have been preparing for this performance, building up so much excitement for this one big moment and then when the moment comes you have stage freight and go radio silent. We tend to want and desire something so much that we get into a habit of thinking about it all the time and when we finally get it we don't know what to do with it because it now requires us to open ourselves up to receive it which brings forward all kinds of feelings.
I made one single shift that transformed my experience around my desire to as more pleasurable one where I could practice receiving all the feelings that my desires would bring me...so what did I do? I stopped thinking and started feeling!
I know what you are thinking, sounds so cliché and easy-just go into the feelings but hear me out first. The ego loves to play in the field of the mind and as soon you choose to drop into your emotions it starts to kick into overdrive trying to protect you from certain feelings and creating all kinds of stories because of its safer in the mind. However, if you really want the experience of your desires you won't get it operating from the place of the egoic mind.
The key is to drop into the frequency, or the more nonspiritual lingo, the emotions/feelings, that your desires would bring you by receiving it at exactly the moment you crave it and FEEL the experience of having it.
The cycle will continue on for a lifetime if you decide to stay in a place of wanting, it keeps you in the same vibrational place of wanting and always wanting instead of receiving which I know is what you really desire and crave the most for yourself.
Tune into the vibrational frequency and feeling of your desires and give yourself the permission to FEEL it all: the turn on, pleasure, success, joy, expansiveness, love, wealth, affluence and whatever else you crave.
Radiance happens by diving head first into your darkness. The grief, anger, pain, frustration and all the feelings that keep us turned off as we move through life instead of enjoying it. By giving myself permission to unleash my inner storm of rupture , I allow the little girl who never got to grief, shout, pout, or ball her eyes out as she sat on the floor in feelings of betrayal to be seen and have a voice. The kind of Rupture I'm talking about lives inside of every woman whether she is conscious to it or not-be it rape, verbal abuse, sexual abuse, being ignored or rejected-it is the very thing that gets us angry as woman and turns us off from our potent essence: our ra• di• ance.
When I was unconsciously navigating my life and before my spiritual awakening, sensual journey & initiation into my own pussy power occurred, I would assume that my feelings of disconnection and upset meant that It was time for me to go out on a date, veg out on the couch, sleep with a hot and sexy man that I would find on a dating app or find someway to completely distract myself from feeling all the feelings that were stirring inside of me. For years I held my rupture at bay because I didn't want to be "too much" or taken over by the intense sadness that would knock on the door of my temple. This coping mechanism worked until one day it no longer worked and I found myself feeling so small and disempowered. Cue the victim please! The world is mean, no one likes me, stories on stories that yet again were distracting me from really feeling my way into the fire of my heart. What I have learned and what I am sharing with you is that your rupture, your pain is the key to unlocking your radiance. I didn't get here because my life was perfect and easy and everyone loved me and saw me as the magical goddess I am today. When I feel myself dimmed and angry at life, its a good indictor that its time for me to go into my rupture and allow it to rock my body. I was victorious in overcoming adversity and feeling all the things I didn't want to feel like crying my eyes out for 6 months over the ending of a 3 year soulful relationship that I didn't want to let go of and yet I knew there was no other way to my happiness. As recently as Friday night I went out and watched this beautiful show at a hotel in West Hollywood and in one performance I witnessed the struggle that goes in relationship when addiction and drugs are involved. They played the scene out so beautifully that it opened up a well of emotions that I had no idea where hiding out within my heart by just witnessing their storm. It brought up thoughts and emotions connected to my mother as she battled with addiction and harsh relationships when I was in my early teens, witnessing her destructive path and her forsaking the very temple that was housing the divine goddess energy of her spirit. That night I broke down hysterically into tears as soon as I got home, I let the flood gates open for a good two hours without judging what I was feeling or trying to figure it out or make myself wrong for feeling what came up. As I woke up the heaviness was still present, what I find is that just one way may not work to shift my storm, so Imoved into dance and put on some music that I knew would pull deeper at my heart strings. Unleashing my hell storm of anger shifted me into a state of pleasure and turn on, reminding me of the radiance that always exists within me as I feel my ass and hips move dancing my way back into my light right in my living room being witnessed by my sisters. There is something super potent about being witnessed in your pain while being held in sisterhood, it makes everything you are feeling acceptable and supported so we can move through to the other side of ecstasy.
The contrast of emotions, the polarity of being in a physical body with a full rainbow spectrum of emotions and the privilege of being the feminine. Our innate nature means that we can smile until our cheeks hurt and in the next moment we can cry until we've created a river with haling skies. The greatest teachers and biggest lights in the world have endured the darkest of days. We need you bright and shiny sister for you too posses divinely potent magic within that is medicine for us all and your radiance is waiting for you on the other side.

~Begin this ritual by lighting a few candles, incense, and dimming the lights to connect to the cool, dark solstice energy~
Start this ritual by sitting on your knees
Take a few slow deep breaths, drop out of the mind and connect with your body, heart and soul.
Ask yourself, “What am I ready to let go of?” Listen for the answer(s) and speak, write or draw them on a piece of paper. Continue to ask yourself this question as many times as needed.
Rise up from your seated position, still on your knees but now standing.
Offer these answers, with your prayer of surrender, to the flame of a candle or fire. Take a deep breath in and exhale out every answer empting your body.
Lift & Place your arms out to the side and begin to gentle lean back, heart out and open in surrender and breath deeply here as you activate this intention of surrender and letting go.
Hold this position for 10 full breathes
Focus on what you’re calling in for this Solstice season to fill this newly created space. Summons the energy of your desires with your intentional prayer and connect to what it FEEL like to receive this prayer! (the prayer could be for your soulmate partner in all his glory, being penetrated by his full presence, held in his lovers arms, as he deeply makes love to you.) The intention could be for financial freedom and radiance through abundance and FEEL DEEPLY through your entire body what that radiant buzzing energy is like.
Lay all the way down onto your back and begin to bring this pleasure into your entire body breathing into your pussy / root chakra first as you circulate the energy and build upon the pleasure.
Visualize circulating the energy in a circle like motion from your pussy / root chakra into your belly and begin to build up into your heart. Continue until you reach an intentional climax or fulfillment.
Write down the intentions in a sacred place or on your altar for safe keeping and nurturing.
You can continue to nurture the energy you cultivated by keeping up with this practice at least once a week or daily as part of your self-care routine.

Come to your sacred space and get comfortable.
Speak this Invocation Out loud:
“Golden mother of all creation, I summon you into my life to bring forth the loving essence of my true nature so I may tune in to the frequency of love and experience the miracles and magic of my human experience.”
Start with 11 mins of meditation, and work your way up.
HANDS: Place your hands on top of your thighs and connect the thumb and the forefinger (tip to tip, not tip to nail) creating a circuit of energy. This is called Gyan Mudra.
BREATHE: Close your eyes & begin to inhale through your nose; exhale through your nose with your tongue gently touching the roof of your mouth.
TUNE IN to the loving essence that surrounds you & exists inside of you by bringing all of you awareness into your heart center. Breathing IN the LOVING energy & Breathing out the LOVING energy.
VISUALIZE an emerald green diamond being placed in the center of your chest directly in your heart chakra. See the green diamond glowing, becoming brighter as it expands out from your chest-growing stronger as it surrounds you like a big vortex of light, with you directly in the center.
BREATHE deeply here for 16 full breathes. (You can count this by starting at the tip of your pointer finger, then to the first crease of that finger to the second crease and then the crease that meets the palm of your hand. 4 points on each finger using your thumb as the counter equals 16 breaths.)
MOVE your attention to the top of you head, onto your crown chakra, as you imagine it opening.
See a golden light forming out of the top of your head, creating a halo above you. This golden universal energy is now showering you with unconditional love, admiration, & celebration in honor of your worthiness & beauty.
RECEIVE this blessing into every cell and organ of your body and stay here for as long as you desire. Circulating and bathing in the energy of love.
BRING your hands together in front of your heart, in prayer pose, and give thanks to yourself first and foremost, to this practice you are cultivating and to the omnipresent loving energy that supports you always.
With grace + gratitude,
It's time to trust your feelings and let them be your guide. This is the first step to being in your power.
I cant tell you how many times I didn't listen to my feelings and ended up in places that I truly didn't want to me. My truth was to just stay home, not answer the call, go out with myself or so many other options that are always available to me when I tap into what my truth is in that moment.
You know exactly what I'm talking about.
When we disregard the way we feel, we are going against our own intuition, our instant knowing and swim against the stream. This is also the number one way we Betrayal ourselves! This is the opposite of self-love and yet so many of us women don't realize this is the root of why we are afraid of being betrayed by a lover or friend. Its because we know deep down inside that we don't trust ourselves therefore how can we trust others even those we love.
Once I realized that it was actually me who was bringing up these feelings of betrayal and mistrust within myself, a light bulb went off in the dark. I used my own Akashic Records for guidance and I saw a blind spot I had been missing for so long!
Instead of beating myself up about how I have been doing this all "wrong" and judge myself for having ruined previous relationships because of this; I made a decision to bring in compassion for myself and not go into shame. This decision opened up the path to pleasure for me giving me the permission to choose pleasurable thoughts that empowered me. I made a new commitment to myself and to the practice of honoring my feelings along with taking the needed action based on my feelings. This is how I went from not trusting my feelings to owning my instant knowing!
If you are desire to be on a more pleasurable path and are ready for a change in the way you feel I am here to guide you back to that loving essence that is truly who you are.
Together we can turn on the light bulb and illuminate the truth behind what you are facing in your life
Tonight is the perfect night to try your hand at a ritual.
For those of you have heard about rituals but never knew why or how to do one, this is for you! The Full moon is a energetic high time for most mystics and moon babies to get out our favorite candles, incense, crystals, and fire. That's right fire! So much magic is in the air and it's a potent time for creation. I love to include all of the elements in my rituals because it connects me not only to my intention when I sit but also to the elements that make up this planet. earth. air. fire. water. ether.
Start by selecting an image that you want to focus upon and bring it to a special place within your home or place on your altar for those of us who have one. The image is to represent the future vision you are holding for yourself and the collective that you want to align with. As this Aquarian full moon, energy is all about vision and accessing our third eye no better way to do that than by actually connecting to something visually beautiful and honoring it in a sacred way.
Next take place a cup of drinking water near your image and place 4 small candles around your image or vision board you have created for yourself in each direction starting with the North, South, East, and West. now light 'em up! place any crystals that call to you around the image between the candles. You have now activated an energetic grid around your vision creating pillars of light holding this sacred vision.
Water + Fire.
Sit in front of your vision so you are facing east, with your arms open , resting on each of you knees with palms facing up. Close your eyes and begin to take long slow breathes. Repeat these breaths for 16 counts.
Now recall the image in a visualization, remembering as much detail as possible and see that image and vision surrounded by purple light as you visualize this in your third eye chakra. Allows the positive, uplifting feelings and joyful celebration of this vision to come alive within you. Stay in this place for as long you desire. Now drink the glass of water and seal in this ritual. You gotta work it for it to work! Keep a connection to this vision, place it on your altar, mirror, beside table and watch how it shows up in your life over the next 6 months as you become fully aligned with this vision and intention.
I'm right there celebrating with you, Enjoy!
I spent many years looking for love in the bottom of a shot glass at endless nightclubs, bars, and events and at a low point in my life I realized that no amount of alcohol, sex, and partying could satisfy my deep appetite for love. I discovered, through this perfectly designed journey of pain, that the love I was seeking was never outside of myself, it was patiently waiting to be reclaimed and unleashed. This Blog is medicine-Its my medicine to anyone who needs and desires it on their personal journey to reclamation.
