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.”

The current 40-day Global Sadhana began on Mother’s Day- Elevating Ourselves, Blessing Our Children. I was pretty much knocked out of the box with sickness over the weekend. I wasn’t quite myself.
But now that I’m patched back together and recuperated, I’ve really begun to enjoy this sadhana more than any of the others I’ve done. Of course, this may have more than a little to do with the fact that little man gets to join in, too.
The children’s celestial communication is my absolute favorite part of this sadhana. Max nearly has it down now, and it’s probably the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. I’ll try to make a video at some point… photographing him is somewhat like trying to get a shot of a yeti, though.
Wish me luck! And try this celestial communication with any little munchkins in your life. I hope they enjoy as much as my little buddy does!
The next Global Sadhana begins this Sunday! This time, we will be “Elevating Ourselves, Blessing Our Children.” It is not only for parents and caretakers of children, but anyone who is interested in the upliftment of children worldwide.
The sadhana includes a pranayama exercise, as well as a recitation. Also, check out this video of what Snatam calls “celestial communication” for children. I love it already! I can’t wait to show it to my little man. He loves learning new songs.
I’m very excited about joining this global community to aid children and their caretakers. And it begins on Mother’s Day… such a great gift ♥
It’s day 3 of the 40-day global sadhana to release fear and become a conscious leader. This global sadhana challenges the participants with a 31-minute daily meditation (demonstrated above). It’s quite intense. Like many kriyas, it requires the practioner to dig deep and push beyond any mental blockages.
Just. Keep. On.

Yesterday, I received the email introducing Spirit Voyage‘s next 40-day Global Sadhana, led by Snatam Kaur and Sopurkh Singh. If you watch the video above, they expound on what this global sadhana will entail.
It will begin on February 6 and continue through March 16, and it will center on releasing fear and becoming a conscious leader.
Once again, I’m in! Sounds like just what the (Divine) doctor ordered.
I’m in Las Vegas! It’s such an exciting place. There’s something new to see every second. Let’s all say a little prayer right now that I can stay committed to my meditation and asana practice while I’m here… I want to finish strong in the 21-day yoga challenge.
As I was taking a moment to check in, I found this article about yoga for the crown chakra (sahasrara) from Spirit Voyage. Check it out! Tips for staying connected to Source while braving this garden of earthly delights…
I’m preparing my class for tomorrow. It’s my birthday, and I get to teach. It’s a gift that I couldn’t have imagined receiving just one year ago. It was about this time one year ago that I sat down and made a list of intentions for the coming year. I wrote them down, said my prayers, and watched things fall into place in such a miraculous way. High on the list… finally get certified to teach yoga. And here I am, one year later, preparing the class I will teach on my birthday.
In gratitude for this wonderful blessing, I wanted to put together a class that honors where I am in my life today while also honoring my students and the spirit of this special season.
We are now 6 days into the 40-day Global Sadhana honoring the Divine Feminine. I am loving connecting with the energy this global community is generating. Each day, I am doing my humble part by finding ways to honor and connect with Mother Earth.
It has been such a powerful practice for me that I wanted to bring that energy into my class this week. The root chakra (muladhara) seemed like a logical place to start. It is the center of physical experience, and its element is earth (its associated shape is the square, which represents the Earth itself).
And then… voilà! This article not only details kundalini practices for developing the root chakra, but also addresses the importance of balancing muladhara during the holiday season.
Thank you, Shakti! Thank you, Ma! I can’t wait to see you at all of my celebrations this year! ♥
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!
