Thoughts on how karma gets activated

Mar 24, 2021

Today, I've been ruminating about bad things happening. We all have witnessed, are witnessing currently, bad things happening to ourselves, to our family, to our collective humankind. This week seems especially inflammatory for many.

In angst of denial and the search for understanding, we blame guns, and people, and parenting, and drugs, and so on... and while those things may be true, it is a relative truth at best. We should use this anger and fear to guide us collectively to making...

Why do we turn to the stars? 

I wonder about this all the time. I've concluded that we turn to the stars to make meaning out of life, these internal feelings, cycles, and big events that we don't seem to be able to control. We want to know, "Does my life have meaning," and we want to get a taste of what that meaning is. We want affirmation. In short, we can be meaning making machines.

This question leads us to the bigger question, "Who Am I?" Who am I in all of this? Do I have...

What Do I Love?

Feb 09, 2021

We are in a powerful time where we are "re-cognizing" our innate wisdom. I've been sharing this with my class members over and over and daily it becomes more obvious to me.

Today, the Moon is in Uttara Ashada, meaning the one who achieves the highest victory or the one who demonstrates innumerable skills, gifts and talents. Always victorious, always winning for the highest good of all.

By 10am the Moon will be in the sign of Capricorn making the 7th planet in the sign, a unique and rare...

An end or a beginning? Deja vu...

Feb 01, 2021

In Jyotisha, also known as Vedic Astrology, or a science of how the light rises in each of us, we have these set periods of time where a certain planet is at the driver's seat and delivering karmic lessons that somewhat redirect us (subtly...or aggressively sometimes) so we gain experience, lessons and knowledge that helps us in fulfilling our life's purpose. These cycles range from 6 to 20 years, depending on the planet. I'm in the last 60 days of a 17-year period and these last days are...

Interdependence Day for America

Jan 08, 2021

Just like me, you may be asking yourself "How can I offer up my spirituality in a way that serves many: The earth, my family, my friends, my yoga community, those who disagree with me, those who dislike me, those who hate me?"

I can say with certainty, "I don't know." ‍‍

I've been speaking with my friends and mentors and I'm hopeful and heartbroken. But this isn't my first rodeo and I understand quite clearly how heartbroken is the key to resurrection and change.

One big thing I...

A crazy time is upon us

Dec 26, 2020

We knew it was coming. We read the cosmos (the placement of the planets with the stars) and saw it coming, changing, shifting.  We even felt it as foreboding. The indicators only show what potentially is ahead of us. We understand this from watching patterns for millennia and recording them. We learn from the past - these indicators from repeating patterns of the cosmos in our visual sky.

I’ve been sitting with this a lot and contemplating this. It's heavy.

It's like how...

A Once in a Lifetime Winter Solstice

Dec 19, 2020

Every year, from the darkest point there is a rebirth of light. 

This appears to be even more true, this year of 2020. Consistently throughout this year we've roller-coastered down to the depths, we've witnessed social inequalities, we've had to physically distance ourselves from others, we've lost family and friends and our innocence. We've had to travel down many paths, in solitude yet solidarity, that challenge our fears, our safety, our security and the grand finale of the darkness...

My Experiment: Gratitude vs. Disgust vs. Ignoring

Nov 24, 2020

Happy Thanksgiving, y'all. In this month of gratitude, I decided to take on a little experiment. I learned about Dr. Emoto's work about a decade ago, it is truly fascinating. In a nutshell, he found through scientifically conducted experiments that the quality of water changes with attention and more specifically the quality of attention it receives. There is so much to say about this but I'm going to let you go down your own rabbit hole and Google his work because it will change...

What is the Hidden Intelligence of My Darkness?

Nov 21, 2020

Do you hear that beckoning from the depths? It is asking something of you.

You...yes you (and me, for that matter) are birthing something so precious.

The feminine is the one that births, it is our creative force, it allows, it requires our desires yet to be made manifest to come forward. She is wild and energized and chaotic and confused. In order to show herself, to emerge and come forth, she must learn to hold that wildness. She must expand her capacity to hold the chaos that arises in her...

Waiting on the World to Change

Nov 02, 2020

That John Mayer song keeps replaying in my mind… ‘waiting…waiting on the world to change. I keep on waiting...’

The world is always changing. Tomorrow is a big, defining day. Either we collectively say this is not the path we want to continue down, or we say it is. One thing I feel confident in is that we probably will not know if we have a new president and half of us will be really upset in the days, weeks and months to come. Maybe even all of us.

2019 was profound...
