Weekly wisdom from Doreen Virtue

It’s Monday again…Doreen is here to give us some information about the week. This time, she is working with the Archangel Raphael oracle cards. Archangel Raphael is a powerful ally for those who are in need of physical healing… see what insight the cards have to share.

Yoga this week

December is here!! This week, I’ll be teaching on Wednesday– my birthday! Such an awesome gift… you know I’m going to make it a special one. Come join the party!

Daily reminder

“No one else can limit you. If you want to limit yourself, you can. Otherwise the entire resources of the Universe are yours to use.”

~Yogi Bhajan

When I say Bolo, you say Ram

Hey there, yoga lovers! The birthday train is rolling now… next stop, kirtan in Santa Monica. Kirtan is a call-and-response style of chanting that I find to be so powerful and liberating. Plus, it’s F-U-N, and there is such a great energy at kirtan gatherings.

The video is a kirtan with Dave Stringer and C.C. White- I’m going to see him tonight at Bhakti Yoga Shala! See you there if you are going. If not, I’ll be sure to fill you in later.

Love to all!

Daily reminder

“You’re the only person responsible for the decision to generate a vibrational match to your desire to be seen as a kind human being, and you can begin to notice when you feel out of sync with that desire: You can cancel an unkind thought in midstream and in an instant decide to be harmonious. You can stop yourself at the moment you’re cursing somebody and elevate your thoughts to kindness.”

~Dr. Wayne Dyer

Intervention is divine

I haven’t had television in my home for many, many years now (unless I was living in someone else’s home…gypsy roots). Occasionally, though, I’ll find myself in front of a TV and a show will really get my attention. One of those is a show called ‘Intervention’ about addicts and the loved ones who are trying to get them help to change their lives.

It’s generally dark and intense, but what I find most intriguing about it is that ray of hope- the prospect for change. Will they say yes? Will they let go of low vibrational behaviors and activities? Will they begin an upward spiral? Through their actions, the subjects are crying out for help… but will they take it?

I suppose I had ‘Intervention’ on my brain yesterday because it was the first of the month (a day that I usually check in with myself and set intentions for the month) and also because it was the first day of the 40-day Global Sadhana honoring the Divine Feminine. Everything about the Sadhana screams YES! to me. In fact, it was one of those areas that I felt that the Divine was winking at me and saying, “Here you go. Here’s what you’ve been looking for. Here’s what to do next.”

But would I accept the help that is being offered? It was after 10pm on the first day, and I hadn’t found time for the daily observances. I was tired. It had been a long day. Excuses, excuses, excuses. Blah, blah, blah. The truth was that I had let myself be carried through the day on the momentum of the habits and rituals that are really, honestly not working for me anymore.

I chose yesterday’s daily reminder specifically for the first day of Global Sadhana to remind myself what the commitment really means (and maybe, possibly because I could foresee myself talking my way out of it). It is a commitment to raise the vibration of our planet and to embrace my own highest vibration for the good of all. I say YES! to that. Drop everything else. Clear my schedule. The Goddess herself has sent me an invite. I’m there!

We are fast approaching that time of year again- the big first day- when we make our resolutions and welcome a new beginning. But what if, this time, we didn’t think of it as an event that will come and go? What if, this time, the commitments that we make to ourselves and each other are the commitments that we keep in every moment- with our words, with our thoughts, with our actions? What if we make every moment a New Year’s Day where we reaffirm our commitment to be the highest and best version of ourselves?

The Divine speaks to us everywhere and through everything. Even the most challenging “problems” are opportunities to learn, grow, and evolve. But the first step is always opening our hearts and accepting that help is here. It reminds me of the story of the man and the lottery ticket:

There is a man who’s always been poor, and one day he decides to pray to God that he could win the lotto. He prays and prays, but doesn’t win. Every day, he prays to God that he could win the lotto, and it never happens.

One day, when he’s very old and frustrated, he gets on his knees and says, “Look, God. This is the last time I’m going to pray. PLEASE let me win the lotto, or at least tell me why you aren’t letting me win.”

Suddenly, an angel appears before the man and says, “Look, sir, could you do God a favor and at least BUY A LOTTO TICKET?!”

So…what’s your answer?

Daily reminder

“Let the waters settle. You will see stars and moon mirrored in your being.”

Day 1 of the 40-day Global Sadhana

Such an exciting day today. So much happening. In addition to everything else, it is the first day of the 40-day Global Sadhana honoring the Divine Feminine. Here is a message from Gurunam Singh for those who are taking part in this powerful worldwide community- 8,600 strong!

Watch an introduction with Gurunam Singh and Ramdesh Kaur here.

Sat Nam!

It’s World AIDS Day

Today, December 1st, is World AIDS Day. There are currently 33 million people on Earth who are living with HIV. Today is about taking time to bring awareness to the unique challenges they face and also to send healing love and light to those who need it.

Years ago, I worked with an Iyengar Yoga instructor who is HIV-positive. He first introduced me to this practice that was specifically designed to bring strength and healing to bodies with HIV/AIDS.

Being that the practice includes several inversions, it is a wonderful way to get everything circulating- like shaking up a snow globe. The movement of blood and lymph is a great rejuvenator for the immune system and for the entire body, so this practice would work well for anyone who is looking to bolster their immunity.

Embrace your strength. And your power to heal.

Sending healing love and light today to all those whose lives have been touched by HIV and AIDS.
