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.

It’s the first of the month

…And you know what that means…

Susan Miller’s monthly horoscopes for the month of December are now up!!

I have been following her site (Astrology Zone) for a few years now, and I always find it to be an amazing source of insight and inspiration. Her horoscope readings are the most useful I’ve ever found. I definitely look forward to the check-in at the beginning of every month.

Even more so this month, since we are currently in Sagittarius. Yay, Sagittarians!

You know those people who get older and stop celebrating their birthdays- like, they say it’s become just another day or they’d rather not acknowledge that they’re getting older or whatever? Yeah, I’m totally not one of those people. In fact, I make the celebration last as long as I possibly can.

On that note… I’m off to Disneyland to get the party started (6 days early).

Holding space

I am in such awe of the way things come together sometimes. When I make a conscious effort to open my heart and open my mind, I can usually step out of the way and watch things take shape before my eyes. Unbelievable, but true. So anyway…

As I’m stumbling and bumbling along watching for inspirations, little clusters of goodness have been dropping into my brain. Some amazing notion will pop up and then I’ll see it everywhere for the next few days. For example, I had been reflecting on the peaceful protests that are taking place throughout our country right now, and I recalled hearing about a large-scale meditation “sit-in” that had taken place in Washington, DC in the early 90s. It was in What the Bleep, maybe. It went something like this…

In 1993 in DC, there was an experiment that brought large numbers of meditation practioners into the city and tracked the number of violent crimes during the time they were there. They were to come into the city and sit in meditation. That’s it. No one was to be informed that they were doing this other than the meditators, the police, and those collecting the data. The experiment was conducted over 8 weeks, and the number of meditators increased as the weeks went on. Guess what happened? Oh right… you saw the graph. If you would like a more detailed account of the study, check it out here.

It just amazes me. I know it’s the truth. And still, it totally amazes me how powerful we are when we tap into our most basic gifts. It’s hard not to wonder why this isn’t happening everywhere?? But wait… and I come back around to the Occupy movement. It is happening. The field is fertile for the most unbelievable possibilities. Open, open, open.

As one flower pushes its way out into the sun, it creates the space for the next one to blossom. At first, it’s one here and then there. Each flower that has already begun to blossom must hold space for the others that haven’t arrived at that point yet. Soon, the number of arrivals grows exponentially, and the landscape transforms more and more quickly. Each new crop holding space and creating the conditions for the blossoming of all.

Thankfully, I found Jeanne Ball’s powerful article tying all of these inspirations together so nicely for me. Thanks to her for that. You can see all of these threads weaving together in front of me has me feeling a little poetic and awestruck. She does an excellent job of laying out the possibilities for consciousness (collective consciousness, oneness consciousness…) to determine the direction our world will take now.

I like the possibilities!! ♥ ♥ ♥

L O V E to all.

THIS is the movement

3…2…1. Try to fight the urge to move. No, don’t, actually. Shiva Rea is a teacher and personal hero of mine. She’s a Shakti warrior and an originator of what I call Shakti dancing.

Today’s gratitude list: Shiva Rea and free expression.

Women throughout history were burned at the stake for self-expression like this, both literally and metaphorically. Many thanks to Shiva for leading the way. Now… Get up. Release your fear. Embrace Shakti. Embody the shift.

It’s all about the Wellingtons

I’ve posted a couple times now about vegetarian/vegan options for Thanksgiving- with recipes and what not. This one is for the culinarily-challenged and time-limited among us. Native Foods is my favorite vegan restaurant, and they will do your Thanksgiving cooking and baking for you. All vegan. They currently have locations in LA, OC, Palm Springs, Portland OR, and Chicago with a north SD location opening next year. And they ship nationwide!

Learn about the wellingtons here.

Millions of voices saying YES!

This is such a powerful message. I’ve been watching this clip over and over again today because he so beautifully articulates so much I’ve been trying to say in this blog. The time is now. The revolution is L O V E!

The forces of change are swirling all around us- it’s not just about the Occupy Wall Street movement or New Age philosophy or yoga. Those are merely different melodies whose notes are aimed at harmonizing with this amazing vibration that is emerging. They are also ways of tagging what is happening and putting it in a box- giving it a name so that the ego can declare “that is not me.” But it is. It is all of us. Like he says, the current mode of being isn’t working for the 1% either. There is a great force that is rising to swallow the shattered fragments of humanity and reunify them- heal them, and that force is universal love.

This is a powerful time to be a human on this planet. Each of us is so miraculously blessed to be here. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

And LOVE TO ALL.
