The solar eclipse last week was an extraordinary time in the universe. Light is cut off to the earth and when it returns back to us, it is an opportunity to start fresh in life. I had the chance to drive out east to Montauk during this time of uncertainly and had the most astonishing experience during the sunset at the other end. The magical colors of the landscape were exploding with an invitation to say YES in life.

We are here now with so many emotions; fear, anxiety, love, joy and gratitude. There is an overwhelming feeling of an awakening to this present moment in time. Becoming a witness to all that is happening and choosing joy over sorrow. Be in awe of our beautiful earth and all that lives on it.  So many messages are being sent

Ever notice if you had been thinking about a certain color you notice it everywhere?  Seems like the mind directs our sight to select things around us that it is focused on. Like if we’re working on picking a paint color and trying to find the “right” color blue, for example, all of a sudden we’re noticing all blue shades around us. Or you’re looking for a plant for your garden, you know you want something coral or pink—as you walk down the street all of the pink and coral flowers present

How many times have you been disappointed because you expected another outcome or for someone to do or say something or act in a different way?  I’ve been examining this in my own life and looking for a way to remove the expectations and replace them with happy acceptances. 

I know from my studies and yoga practices, “santosha” or contentment, comes from the ability to accept. Why wouldn’t we want to feel content in our lives and do everything to be in that state of being? Could be a lot of it

When I looked back, all of the sand had drizzled to the lower part and I thought: it is just like life passing by, before you know it, in whatever way, it ends. 

We each have a unique hourglass, and we live as if the sand will be a never-ending flow. But that is not the reality and once we realize that, we understand that it is what we make of life—what

Let go of attachments, resentments, expectations, grudges, emotions and pain. Repeating the mantra, LET GO, again and again has been beneficial in my practice on and off the yoga mat.

Often, we are asked to listen and we feel compelled to give advice or talk about our own problems. My best friend, daughter, confidant sent me the following poem a few years ago when she was in a psychology class for nursing. The instructor made copies for each student to have and of course she knew I would love it or perhaps she was trying to tell me something. I am sharing because it had a profound impact on how I listen.

When I ask you to listen to me and you start giving me

Recently, this question was asked to me and really got me thinking about energy. So many different energies in our world. Positive, negative, high, low, happy, sad, chatty, quiet, upbeat, depressed, anxious and grounded.
