Integrity is Sexy

Integrity is sexy.

It doesn’t matter what you commit to, but when you do — show up fully!

Rise Retreat - Day 4_089 - Web.jpeg

Know that when you commit to someone or something, you make an empowered decision to devote your energy, time, resources and heart.

It’s not only a practice, but a way of living with a deeper devotion and with Truth.

All day long we are given hundreds of opportunities and circumstances to practice living with integrity.

Some of these are definitely more fun and feel easier to commit to than others, but nonetheless, they all deserve the same quality of our attention.

And when we do show up fully, we are always rewarded because our actions feel more like acts of service, not only to others — but most importantly to ourselves.

We strengthen the emotional/mental muscles that give us the confidence, clarity and trust that we can and DO move in a way which is aligned with our thoughts/words.

In the beginning, living with this sort of integrity (which means living with honesty, accountability and integrated actions) can often feel contractive as extra effort/intention are required, however, with time we strengthen this capacity and it becomes a natural expression that we value within all aspects of our life.

We quickly realise what relationships, projects or circumstances are not being fueled or led with integrity, which allows us to redefine our boundaries and redirect our energy elsewhere.

It’s a way of reclaiming our power through presence!

Because we when show up with full presence (no matter how small or big the act) we walk away from it with a sense of completion and contentment.

We can rest assured that we gave 100% of ourselves — from there we can soften around the tiny details or outcome, and open further to the Grace of the Universe to carry us forwards in the best way possible ⚡️

A taste of Truth

Once you taste Truth, it’s almost impossible to go back ⚡️

Because on the other side of the ignorance and disillusion (no matter how simple or complex) is a deep found clarity and freedom felt within the heart, which brings some sort of resolve and inner contentment.

And once you’ve touched it, there’s a subtle but constant yearning to access this state of grounded liberation.

The body remembers this feeling and always wants to move from this place — anything less feels inauthentic and seems superficial.

And eventually you fine tune your awareness to listen closer and perceive the small messages/signs to discern what is true for YOU in every conversation and circumstance.

It’s a practice of becoming clear on who you are, what you value and how to create heathy boundaries to protect that — its an art to skillfully contain, direct and channel your Prana (energy) towards the right people, projects and places.

But every right action (no matter how small or large) is a step forwards.

And the more right action you take, the easier it becomes to flow from this place.

The small steps create momentum that pulse into fulfillment of the larger intentions, aligning your day to day actions to support your life’s desires, dreams and greater purpose.

To live with radical Truth is to clear the path for yourself and those around you...to rise into who you are truly meant to be and give permission for others to do the same!

It’s your individual birth right, duty and highest form of liberation.

So the reminder and encouragement is to continue serving your heart with honest daily ‘check ins’ through committed practices, trusting that what serves you moment to moment will ALWAYS serve the collective heart of the world, one honest thought, conversation and action at a time 🕊

Life as Celebration

One of the most beautiful teachings within the Tantric texts is the reminder to engage fully with the world around us. 

Inna Shnayder @Inna.Shnayder-151.jpg


It’s easy to become stagnant in our practices/routines and remain within our comforts. 


And it’s even easier to feel overwhelmed with daily responsibilities/roles in our fast paces lives, forgetting the nature of our essence. 


Both leave us feeling discounted, static and lacking vitality.

Tantra teaches us boundaries to expand and open ourselves to connect in new ways while remaining true to our needs/values. 


It acknowledges that every moment is an opportunity to not only live consciously, but to ENJOY living consciously. 


We are meant to feel radiate and alive - our faces want to smile, our legs want to dance and our hearts want to beat fast with passion and excitement. 


To celebrate is to live in this human embodiment!

And we don’t need permission or to be on holiday to have fun, immerse in pleasure or see beauty.

It’s our birthright to experience fun, pleasure and beauty as often as possible...and our practice is to be non-attached to it...this is how life can become a celebration...even amidst challenges or pain. 


Most of the time it’s our human conditioning that gets in the way and blocks us from engaging fully with ourself and the world around us. So relax, shake it up, laugh it off and let yourself go wild.

Let yourself celebrate the small things...don’t wait for a special occasion to do what brings you joy and happiness. Now is the time to rejoice!

Om Jai Swaha!

Happiness, an inside job

Happiness is an inside job!

There is a difference between transitory (temporary) happiness and genuine (sustained) happiness. 

Lauren Photoshoot Bali_34_Web.jpg

Temporary happiness satisfies our cravings momentarily and often leave us desiring more, while genuine happiness fuels our Soul and leave us feeling rejuvenated, more at peace and tapped into sensations that go beyond the physical experience.

And the truth is, we all have access to an infinite source of sustained happiness — but most of the time we search for it in the wrong places, seeking external items, relationships or circumstances as validation of our worthiness and joy.

We place unrealistic expectations on them, and in turn feel lost and empty when they are no longer in our lives — we create our own suffering based on attachments and addictions to sources that we know are not serving our highest Self.

In a world of constant change and impermanence, our inner happiness is the most important aspect to cultivate if we want to live this life fully — receiving and sharing the gifts of this human embodiment!

It’s the only thing we can rely to be permanent. 


Because when we we feel supported, seen and heard (loved) from within, every other form and expression of love that comes our way is an added bonus. We can then offer that love back out into the world without becoming depleted or dependent. 

This type of fulfillment must go beyond the body and mind — it has to awaken the Spirit, tapping into the hearts innate wisdom, softening us into pure presence.

It’s a constant practice of effort and intention, a willingness to consistently show up and a sustained desire for peace. 

Our Spiritual practices are the pre-requisite — they are like a daily dose of medicine for the Soul that allow us to tap into a place of connection and gratitude, so we can walk through the world with more positivity, ease and celebration.

They bring us into an unchanging oasis within the heart, the space that is overflowing with peace and presence, fulfilling us deeply from the inside out. 

And the best part is that these practices are accessible and available for all! 

It only takes commitment to living in alignment with your highest Self — a readiness to deepen your path and enthusiasm to cultivate more love.

Are you ready to live in alignment?

Woman of my Dreams

AliKaukas_5659.jpg

And just like that

I see myself as the woman of my dreams

Soulful, wild, enchanting, nurturing and intentional

With clarity that calls in the deepest freedom of the heart

And innate wisdom that honors intuition as my greatest force

The eternal play of my feminine, letting go of self limiting beliefs and boldly stepping through new gateways

Rites of passage that are moving me to the next phase

Subtle openings, pulsing vitality through my veins

With just the right amount of effort

And the right amount of softening

Fueled by surrender and faith

Enhanced by connection and creativity

Held by deep truth and unconditional love

A slow unveiling, quietly stripping away what’s ready to be liberated

More ready than ever

My inner Goddess is rising from new ashes

With a heart that’s set on fucking fire

Elemental Embodiment

Untitled-design-15.jpg

One translation of Ayurveda is 'knowledge of life’ which so simply and beautifully encompasses this ancient and vast system of holistic healing - one that encourages us to live skillfully, with greater vitality to find freedom in the body, mind and heart.

Known as the 'sister science' to yoga, Ayurveda shares similar principals and philosophies. It offers a clear and accessible 'map' rich with tools (wisdom, practices, rituals) to guide you into greater balance depending on your unique constitution.

Ayurveda and Yoga teach us that our inner world is a reflection of our outer world.

And our own health is crucial to the well-being of the entire eco-system.

They are platforms for us to explore the Self through practices of self-care that lead us to live in greater alignment with our true essence.

As a yoga practitioner, I have experienced huge shifts in my health and well-being from learning the principals within Ayurveda. My personal practice has enhanced and expanded far beyond my mat, and showed me how to integrate this wisdom in very practical ways. 

As these principals have become an important part of my own journey, I am deeply passionate about sharing them with others to provide a pathway for greater transformation!

I am thrilled to offer my first online course 'Elemental Embodiment' which includes five accessible yoga practices and a supportive e-guide focused on the five elements.


My aim is to provide a foundation to understand the unique qualities and expressions of each element, and to learn simple ways to maintain greater balance through aligned yoga practices and lifestyle routines.

I'm honored to share the teachings with deep reverence and authenticity, and it's my greatest hope is that this course sparks a seed of desire for further knowledge within this beautiful (vast!) body of wisdom.

The Metamorphis of Being

The butterfly begins as a humble earthbound caterpillar, moving slow and steady. It eventually gains enough nutrients by eating surrounding leaves and turns into a chrysalis, protected inside a cocoon of silk. This stage can last weeks, months or even longer, depending on the species. And when the new cells are developed, it slowly unveils into a brand new version of itself: a magnificent winged butterfly, gifted with the ability to fly freely through the vast sky.

Lauren Photoshoot Bali_54_Web.jpg


Intricate and exquisite in it's being, delicate and full of grace, yet strong enough to flow with the currents of the wind, trusting in it's new form. 

The archetype of the butterfly has always been one of transformation and courage. 

This small creature has the power to inspire and remind us of nature's perfect order of intelligence, inviting us to further experience this metamorphis, as we transition through various life cycles and ways of expression within the world, based on our Souls unique blueprint. 

Just as the plant and animal Spirit around us, we humans ebb and flow to the Divine beat of the Universe, all within perfect timing. We can't skip a phase nor can we rush the process. The step by step Vinyasa of our growth is governed by a larger force, guiding us into greater harmony.

Our practice is to be present with this fluid reality of life...open to the power of change and teachings within each phase.

As we accept this intrinsic cycle of contraction and death, regeneration and renewal, expansion and rebirth within our bodies and minds, we are able to extract and integrate the nectar of wisdom into the heart, our unchanging essence. 

With this understanding, we can move from the victim to the hero, and release old patterns which react from fear and instead become the one who responds from truth. As we attune to this, we soften into compassion and melt into deeper understanding and gratitude for the totality of this journey...both the moments of pure ecstatic passion and raw beauty, and moments of discomfort, confusion and rage. We know that nothing will ever remain static. 

Just as the caterpillar inevitably shapeshifts into the butterfly, us humans, are encoded to evolve. Our innate goodness and potential to transform is inherent to the natural laws of the Universe. 

When we know this to be true for ourselves, we see and believe in it for those around us.  

May this be a remembrance...

That transformation isn't easy, but in perfect timing, bathed in our efforts (presence and intention) we will be gifted with a new set of wings that will guide us to fly. 

To honor whatever cycle we are in and trust in order of intelligence, a rhythm that is perfect in its ability to unfold with the medicine we are ready to receive. 

That when we emerge from the depths of our cocoon, we have not yet taken flight in our new form, yet we must open our wings with confidence and courage...and embrace when we make mistakes along the way.

That one of our greatest gifts we can give to another human is to see the majesty of their beauty and believe in their ability to transform.

Love Heals All

Inna Shnayder @Inna.Shnayder-79.jpg

We are always love.


We are not broken nor do we need to heal.


We have all the information and teachings we will ever need within us.


Our soul is as vast as the oceans, and vibrates to the beat of the Cosmos. It shines as bright as the sun and yearns to dance freely with the winds.


And our only job is to listen to the wisdom of our bodies and hearts, so the mind can quiet.
We must learn to come back to who we truly are meant to be...to remember and accept ourselves wholeheartedly.


Because we are single threads of a larger colorful tapestry of life - we are all connected and when one us begins to honor and love who we are, we impact and inspire every other person to do the same.


When we own who we are and stand our voice, we shift the paradigm of the world.
Imagine the power and possibility if 7.2 billion people woke up tomorrow and shifted their vibration?


What if we all tapped into a place of trust through our breath and simple gratitude?


What if we believed in our inner state of abundance and worthiness?


What if we all spoke truthfully with compassion and followed what brings us joy?


We would change our energy and in turn change our entire experience of how we move in the world. We would all be living our dream realities and lift one another up. We would collectively rise towards new ways of being and inspire change for generations to come.

Sacred Activism: A prayer for the New Paradigm

We are learning to live for what really matters most to us in a time of sacred activism as we awaken into our power, and consciously listen to and respond from our hearts.

Inna Shnayder @Inna.Shnayder-327.jpg

We are remembering our intrinsic intelligence and the strength we hold as a collective.

We are inspired to take responsibility for our actions and aim to walk lightly on this Earth.

Revolutionizing the way we live and love.

To live with this awareness takes a deep desire and commitment to our personal practices of growth...a willingness to stand tall even amidst the discomfort...to stay connected to our truth and the higher vision during hard conversations and moments of transition.

Effort. Steadiness. Integrity. Clarity. Patience.

These virtues are the backbone that enable us to express a more conscious way of being.

And the Soul of our work is the dedication to show up and be seen, to share our unique story and follow the path that most lights us up.

To stay within the work and put ourselves out there, even when it’s scary. To be brave enough to start fresh when we mess up, and to forgive the old version of ourselves. To see the Divine in others (especially those who challenge us) and allow that unbound presence of love to be the foundation of how we communicate and interact.

And the more we show up, the easier it becomes.

We learn that we can craft our power from old stories, wounds and perceived failures. We reiterate to ourselves that we can rise above fears and limited beliefs. We affirm to the Universe that we choose intimacy and connection with ourselves and those around us.

And when we make this choice, over and over again, we inspire those around us to do the same...and slowly the paradigm shape-shifts from our energy, words and actions, and the Cosmos reflect the very light of our own essence.

Returning to the Practice

Practice, practice, and more practice.

The Spiritual path is a process of purifying practices that peel back the veils of the mind.

Lauren Photoshoot Bali_27_Print.jpg

The aim to align us with our heart through an inner listening + remind us of our strength and the power we each hold to access our intrinsic states of freedom, joy and calm. 
They focus and channel our attention, thoughts + actions so we can live with greater flow, in alignment with our values and tap into our greatest potential. 
And although many aspects become easier over time, it’s constant effort and intention to stay rooted in our higher Self. 

And inevitably we will make mistakes and forget our true nature. 
We will fall back into old patterns and behaviors. 

We may find ourselves in situations that don’t feel right, or become physically sick as our bodies try to tell us what we ignored. 

And eventually (once we’ve had enough) a flash of clarity will come and call us back to the path. 

Our deepest desire for alchemy and freedom will overrule and guide us to our studentship.

These are the times when we crave space to quiet the noise of our busy lives, and need to focus fully on ourselves. 

Our hearts know what our minds are often late to recognize - and will gently remind us that no matter how far we’ve strayed, our yoga practice begins again here and now, and that each day is an opportunity to start fresh. 

We know that our growth and the goodness we share in the world comes from the consistency and dedication to our own self-care. 

The fire inside us always burns bright with passion and will humbly acknowledge when we are ready to step into the next phase of our evolution and to ignite our Soul. 
Our only job is to listen and trust. 

When we attune and follow the yearning, our receptivity is rewarded...layers are shed...patterns and traumas released...stagnancy is shaken up and allows for connection and integration to move through our body/mind...clarity arises and desires are formed...and contentment and gratitude move freely through our heart.
 

Devotion: Life as Offering

Inna Shnayder @Inna.Shnayder-274.jpg

Devotion is when we commit with loyalty and love to a person, experience or cause.

It’s when we live with purpose and intention so our energy pours from a place of honesty and integrity.

Our enthusiasm and presence for that which we devote ourselves to, becomes the thread of connection to Spirit.

It’s the fuel that feeds the prayers of our offerings, allowing us to devote our gifts and resources freely from the fullness from our hearts...replenishing us from the inside out.

We can devote ourselves to one (or many) people/experiences/causes and receive immense joy - an inner well spring of connection that seems to overflow on the daily. Or we can aimlessly move through life, unsure of who and what we want to devote ourselves to, feeling stripped of our time and energy, empty and lost.

Devotion is a grounding force that taps us into Source. It’s a vital piece of our Spiritual development as it allows us to take any situation/experience and create deeper purpose - reflections, growth and awakenings.

And from my experience, it isn’t taught - rather an intrinsic desire for a deeper connection that we must be willing to unlock.

It’s a felt energetic exchange with the Universe which arrives as subtle and powerful shifts in our consciousness...an affirmation, deep breathing, preparing meals, helping a stranger, sharing knowledge, volunteering time...it doesn’t mater what the act, most important is how you move through it - to see it through the lens of a daily prayer and sacred offering to the world.

So let life become the offering of your Soul.

Choose simple ways in which you devote yourself to everyday, no matter how small or large the purpose may seem, remember that when we commit and show up fully, we our thread within the tapestry of life strengthens to make for a more beautiful, vibrant and connected existence.

Snake Medicine: Shedding our Skins

Lauren Photoshoot Bali_48_Print.jpg

Just as the Serpent sheds its skin, we too, have the capacity to shed old patterns and ways of being so we can step more fully into our power and purpose. Our yoga practice is one of many gateways into this process of purification. Physically, when we move our bodies into new shapes and forms, we stir up and awaken neuromuscular patterning to create new pathways between the body and mind. When we add breath and attention to this experience, we have the power to clear stagnant energy, allowing for more clarity and creativity to surface.

Life is always asking us to consciously release to make space for the new.  

This process of purification is often uncomfortable as it asks us to shake things up and move into unfamiliar territory...often inviting us to let go of deeply rooted ancestral patterns and conditioning, relationships or projects that no longer align and nourish us. 

During this phase, we can look to the archetypes that embody these same cycles of transformation as affirmation. The snake and the fall season are just a few examples within our natural world for us to invoke as guides. 

A reminder from the snake comes in the lesson of our ability to transform with perfect timing. The snake is highly intuitive and senses exactly when, how and what layers to shed. It reminds us to trust in the process of letting go and stay connected to the higher vision as our new skin (Self) is on the rise. Just as the snake, we always re-emerge on the other side of this process with a sense of renewal and wholeness. 

May your practices bring a deeper awareness of the skins that are ready to be shed in order to call in the next phase of your evolution!

The Power of Human Connection

Inna Shnayder @Inna.Shnayder-310.jpg

Human connection. 
It’s a Universal desire and shared value throughout all cultures and times. It enhances the quality of life and increases our longevity.
In a fast paced modern world, often driven by technology and virtual interactions, these moments of human connection are priceless. Presence is the most powerful commodity of our times. 
When we boldly meet the eyes of another, listen without interrupting, share with honesty or touch with intention, there is an energetic exchange that connects us to the heart. 
We allow the other person to feel seen, heard and felt. We support them to soften and shed the armor. They are more likely to trust and experience the intimacy of our presence. 
When another leans in and receives, we too can lean in and receive...even if we are the one offering. Thats the simple beauty of these connections - they provide nourishment for both people if they are willing to open to it. 
And when we meet another in this way - whether it’s for a fleeting moment or an extended experience, we feel the power of our shared humanity. 
We all seek greater depth in our life through nourishing interactions - with ourselves and to others as they gift us a sense of belonging which almost instantly brings us into a remembrance that we are a part of something larger. 
We awaken to Spirit, which guides us to acknowledge that we are all one...eternally connected with shared desires and dreams. 
These sweet connections are what make life worth living. If our presence has the potential to change and uplift another’s experience for the better, we are changing the world, simply through our willingness to show up. 
It’s the simple things in life that make a big impact...through our devotion to a creating world with more love, and with consistent efforts.

Guru Purnima

DSC01002.jpg

Deep bows to all the beautiful teachers in my life and those who continue to fuel my growth on this auspicious day of Guru Purnima. Teachers come in many forms - parents, friends, lovers, children, animals, nature, archetypes...and through all experiences in life of both love and loss. 
Today is a sacred day in Hindu culture to honor and pay respects to the ones who have opened the gates of the heart on our Spiritual path. 
The Guru. 
The one who leads us from darkness to light. 
The one who shows us our shadow and our luminosity. 
The ones who courageously walk the path and lovingly guide the way. 
Grateful to all the teachers who continue to guide me through the Yoga traditions to accelerate my growth, as well as the community who shows up around me to immerse in the practices. 
In my experience, these teachers present themselves at the exact moment in time and are committed, present, authentic and full of love. They are embodied in many ways, yet receptive and humble along the way. 
Thank you to each of you for standing in your strength. You inspire and fuel me in so many ways

Trust the Path

Believe that anything is possible.

Inna Shnayder @Inna.Shnayder-221.jpg

Your wildest dreams are worthy and your joy is medicine to the world.

It doesn’t mean that trusting or acting upon it won’t be difficult or scary at times - but with desire, intention and clear action, we can trust that our path will unfold in ways which are aligned and meaningful.

Our existence will take form of the sacred Vinyasa...one step after the next, steady and sustainable, intelligently placed - a process of growth and expansion through Divine timing.

There is no rush. Only small acts of remembrance to that which fuel our heart to help us believe in the magic of our journey.

Devotion. Connection. Impact.

These words are currently fueling my mind and heart. They are reminders of my own values and ideas of success.

Writing. Beach Swims. Breath. Community.

These are the ways in which I am currently tapping into Source and co-creating for the benefit of myself and those around me.

Never perfect, but always done with the utmost love and to the best of my ability today.

These words and actions continue to call me back to my purpose and give wings to my visions.

Sensation as the Spiritual Gateway

Lauren Photoshoot Bali_24_Web.jpg

I’ve been in conversation with friends around the subject of sensitivity & spirituality. 
Talk surrounding the intensity of the times.

There is so much contraction within political realms, mass corruption & violence...and at the same time magical movements of revolutionaries & healers standing up for the widespread injustice, inspiring and initiating new paradigms of living.

It’s a time of contrast - immense suffering & incredible liberation.

Our spiritual practices aim to bring more ease and lightness, but they require us to step up and do the work through the shadow.

Everything once covered up, rises to the surface. Slowly the veils of disillusion are stripped away.

The truth of reality bares itself and we’re presented with the choice to rewrite our story & realign.

But we can’t SEE unless we allow ourselves to FEEL. 
Staying present to the sensation of each felt experience is the gateway to mini awakenings upon reflection.

The alchemy occurs when we consciously channel the information presented & move in the way that is most healing for ourselves and those around us. 
Discernment & clear boundaries...receptivity & unconditional compassion are needed more than ever. 
We must stay rooted in our values & remain open to the perspective and choice of another, without judgement. 
Landing back into life in North America has brought much to the surface...a reminder that no matter how sweet or stormy the feelings/conversations are, there are no rights/wrongs. The highest practice is to stay awake to the sensations, to act from a place of truth and lean into the ride. 
Sensitivity is not only a practice, but a gift of our human experience - our souls are strong enough to handle the extremes and courageous enough to move with skill and grace. 
Yes, we are capable of change and are here in this exact moment for a reason. Throughout the swirl is a cleansing, which always leads to a rising. Collectively, we are in it, I see it and I feel it wholeheartedly.

Transitions

DSC_6045.jpg

To live within the unknown requires deep courage and trust in a higher guidance. 


Whether we are aware or not, we’re always living in spaces of mystery as life is a constant change of cycles and phases.


To graduate to the next phase, we must destruct and die out our old ways of being to embrace the new. And between the old and new are the spaces of unknown - often scary and equal parts exciting with endless possibilities on the rise...these transitional times when acknowledged, hold the greatest opportunities for growth and healing to occur. 


But first we need to tune in and listen...allow and surrender...with patience and compassion.

Trust in whatever process is unfolding for you right now.

Know that everything will work out better than you have planned or could imagine.

Your intentions are felt and higher visions seen. 


Allow time to integrate, rest and play play play!

Celebrate where you are today and how far you’ve come.

Fall in love with the journey - the messy and detoured parts as well as the graceful flowing moments exactly as they are...wildly unpredictable, ever changing and beautiful in all ways.

Say YES to life!

Saying yes to life is living with your arms wide open. 

It's a word that contains the possibility for magic to rise from. 

.jpg

It doesn't mean we say yes to a person or project we don't feel aligned with - we must practice discernment so we can say yes with clarity and courage to follow the things that sets our soul on fire.

It's about trusting in the goodness of life - the unconditional opportunities and abundance. 

It requires us to accept all aspects of life - without rejection or fear of the places that are uncomfortable or unknown.  

When we live from this space, we welcome the ebb of flow of our existence - we can be fully aware and engaged, yet maintain a healthy and expansive perspective, knowing that all things flow within a natural state of expansion and contraction. 

This is a moment to moment practice of welcoming in the flow of Shakti, or the creative power and force of life within and all around us.

Awakening Shakti brings us deeper into our connection to that which is higher than ourselves, so we may see life as a Divine lesson, guiding and teaching us all that we need to know, in order to help us realise our potential. 

Live in Magic

AliKaukas_5651.jpg

The more we choose to look for the good and see the beauty, the more our lives become infused with magic.

It often requires us to slow down enough to truly notice, experience and embrace the small moments and transitions of our day to day experience. 

And when we do, we awaken to deeper connection and meaning. Life becomes sacred, even during the seemingly mundane.

It’s through our own personal experience of this Divinity that we feel it within the rest of the Universe. 

We can embrace and move towards living life open to the potential of a consciously co-created space where magic arises from.

And it doesn’t always have to be grand or idyllic - often the most magical moments are free because they are created by your willingness to see and feel.

For me it’s listening to the sounds and song of the birds and allow my imagination to run wild with their message...feeling the sunshine on my face and let its vitality be a guide throughout the rest of my day...tasting each flavor of my food and visualizing it nourishing my body...or simply returning to my breath and reminding myself of my life force.

The truth is, we are each our own Universe, complete with millions of magical moments, just waiting to be felt in the body and dreamed up in the mind.

It only takes minutes to remember that life is full of beauty - that we are rich in creative potential and mystical beings infinitely supported by the vast web of life.
