Yoga this week!!

It’s a special week for the North County Yoga Goddesses! Wednesday, August 22nd marks the one year anniversary of the creation of the group. To celebrate, we will have two very special classes this week.

The first will be our regular Monday class at 10am. Then, we will celebrate one year of strength, flexibility, and sisterhood on Saturday with a shorter (~30 minute) flow practice, followed by a group picnic.

If you are living in North San Diego County and are interested in joining our group, please check us out!

Namaste, everyone!

“The word ‘honey’ isn’t honey. You can study and talk about honey for as long as you like, but you won’t really know it until you taste it. After you have tasted it, the word becomes less important.”

The Siri Gaitri Mantra

Ra Ma Da Sa Sa Say So Hung

This mantra (the Siri Gaitri mantra) has become a daily companion for me in the past few weeks.

Since I received my Reiki attunements last month, I have been paying extra attention to my etheric body and my chakras, especially as I am practicing healing on myself and others. As Ramdesh Kaur states in her article about the Siri Gaitri mantra, it is “a way of raising your vibration to the frequency of Divine Healing.”

Want to learn more? Also check out this great article with an expanded description of the mantra’s universal healing properties and how to incorporate it into meditation.

Let the healing begin!!!

Weekly wisdom from Doreen Virtue

It’s a new week, and Doreen is here with your weekly guidance from your angels.

Her reading falls right in line with the message that I’ve been hearing over and over lately- Slow down, allow yourself to rest, and spend time praying about what your next step will be. September will be filled with opportunities for action and plowing ahead. Right now, recharge your batteries and be sure you’re prepared when those opportunities present themselves.

Don’t you just love when all of the signals are lining up and pointing in the same direction?

Have a happy and blessed week, everyone. Don’t forget to pause and take good care of yourselves. Doctor’s orders!… or Angel’s, rather.

Bonjour, mes amis!!

Well, well, well… what have we here?!

Moments ago, I logged on to the site for the first time in… a long time. In fact, I noticed that my last post was from June 18th- two days before the solstice.

Ahhh, yes! It makes perfect sense now. I sat down to do my ‘work’ on the morning of the 19th, and I no longer had a working display on my computer. Because the fairies, angels, Holy Ones, and heavenly Beings must have thought it would be best for me to disconnect and enjoy my summer ;). Thank God/dess!

Within days of my personal computer breaking, all of the others in my home developed problems as well. I have been completely, blissfully computerless all summer. It’s the best time for it, really.

There are new developments to share- and new inspirations. This time has been a productive one for me to regroup, reevaluate, and decide what is the next step. I will have a lot to share very shortly. Just in time because the computer situation is on the verge of being remedied.

Check back soon for more updates!

Love to all!

Namaste, yoga lovers!

Crystal in the spotlight: Amazonite

Day 5… I’m alive! Thanks to the trusty amazonite in my pocket. Ha. Amazonite is a great protection stone, and it is known for blocking many types of stress.

Personally, I love the appearance of it. The beautiful blue-green color reminds me of tropical waters.

The property that I’ve most often heard associated with amazonite is its ability to protect the physical body from microwaves and cell phone emanations. It absorbs this ‘pollution’ and should be placed between you and its source (taped to a cell phone, for instance).

Here is more about its specific healing properties:

“Amazonite heals and opens both the heart and throat chakras to enhance loving communication. It also opens the third eye and intuition. The stone dissipates negative energy and blockages in the nervous system. It is beneficial in osteoporosis, tooth decay, calcium deficiency, and calcium deposits, balancing the metabolic deficiencies that create these conditions. The elixir rectifies calcium problems. Amazonite also relieves muscle spasms. A major property is the protection it affords from the health hazards of microwaves and other sources of electromagnetic smog.”
~Judy Hall, from The Crystal Bible

Beauty and magic! Ah, I’m in love… ♥

Weekly wisdom from Doreen Virtue

Sum-sum-summertime.

Can I see by a show of hands who is excited for the summer solstice on Wednesday? It’s one of my favorite days of the year- the longest day of the year! Go, sunshine, go!

I’m still hoping that the gloom dissipates a little so that I could actually see a some sunshine. That would be nice. I taught my class under gloomy skies this morning, but we had a good time all the same. I always love teaching outside on Monday mornings. It sets a good tone for the beginning of the week. Which brings me back to…

Doreen and the angels are here once again to give us guidance about the upcoming week- the official beginning of summer. Such an active, exciting time of the year. See what the angels have to say about it.

Happy Monday!

“If grief or anger arises,
Let there be grief or anger.
This is the Buddha in all forms,
Sun Buddha, Moon Buddha, Happy Buddha, Sad Buddha.
It is the universe offering all things
to awaken and open our heart.”

Crystal in the spotlight: Aventurine

Day 4 already! You know what that means? The summer solstice is getting near.

Of course, it also means that we’ve worked our way up to the heart chakra in our little ‘crystal in the spotlight’ marathon. And the stone of the day is…? Aventurine! You may have noticed that both chrysoprase and malachite (our two previous crystal superstars) are also strongly connected to the heart. Green is the color of the heart chakra, so many green stones have an association to the heart chakra.

In fact, aventurine can be a variety of colors, and each of these varieties has its own unique properties. Aventurine has a high quartz content, but it is the presence of other minerals that determines its color. Green aventurine, the type that I picked up in Oklahoma, is the most common variety. The green color is produced by the addition of fuchsite to the quartz crystals.

I think that my favorite quality of green aventurine is that it facilitates connection to the devic kingdom, making it a friend of the gardener. Any friend of the gardener is a friend of mine!

Aventurine is another great protection stone, protecting the heart and regenerating heart energy. It also balances male and female energies, and promotes leadership qualities.

On a physical level, aventurine promotes feelings of well-being and heals parts of the body found in the region of the heart and throat (heart, lungs, adrenals, and sinuses).

Here’s to you, aventurine! Welcome to the family!
