Full Moon on Christmas Day!

Happy Holidays!

What a freaking year it has been! Through the challenges and set backs one was asked to find meaning, strength, and ultimately peace. This year represented the number 8 (2+0+1+5) and encouraged us to tap into our infinite source of abundance. In order to manifest what it is we desire, we also have create the space for it to enter our lives. And often, that means letting go and being patient. Not easy however surely rewarding!

fullmoonchristmasAs we enter the last Full Moon of the year that falls upon Christmas Day, 12/25, in the sign of Cancer, we are asked to open our hearts with gratitude for not only our own self expansion but compassion for that of the world. In these troubling global moments times, we need to spread love more than ever and the more we surrender our own fears, more of those good vibes can start to flow through. This Moon is a rare occurrence, the last time it graced us was 12/25/1977 and signifies our readiness for harmony among nations and the clearance to share our creativity out!

The Full Moon kicks off December 25th at 6:11AM EST (or 11:11AM Universal Time!) and it is always best to do an offering or ritual as close to the onset as possible. However if the holiday is taking over your schedule, you can do within 48 hours after. I have created a 40 minute guided meditation that takes you through the entire process, including details about the sign it’s in, breath work, meditation, and journaling. To receive the mp3, go here.

Wishing you so much peace, love and joy throughout this holiday season and always!

Full Moon in Gemini…Unlock your Abundance!

La Luna, the gorgeous Moon turns Full in the astrological sign of Gemini at 4:44pm Central time on Wednesday, November 25th. The presence of this moon will last for a span of 48 hours and bring with it a surge of abundance and freedom!

It is absolutely fitting that it moves through as the U.S. celebrates Thanksgiving, a traditional time to celebrate harvest and family. The moon space will also generate this notion of prosperity and asking you to question the areas of your life that are ripe with possibility.

What in your life feels so full and rich that it’s ready for more? The New Moon on 11/11 asked you to release what was heavy so you could pass the gateway into manifesting your dreams.  Now, the Moon beckons you to continue to go for your desires and push the trigger for more. Areas of focus on are self care and health as well as launching new career endeavors.

This moon falling in Gemini will govern over our communication. Watch what you say and be clear and direct with your words. Gemini rules the throat chakra and we need to not only say what we want but listen first to the inner guidance from your soul. Watch for when your mind will try to convince you otherwise and reframe. How true are the judgements you are making? I mean, really?  The cosmos are telling us it’s okay to break the rules. They were never really yours to follow to begin with!  Imagine what could happen if you just trusted and let the universe take the reigns from there?

I’m offering a guided MP3 meditation to ease you through this moon. It will provide confidence & clarity with a bit of sweet surrender as you move into this next phase. You can access it here. It’s great to listen to solo or with your family before you feast!  During the 45 minutes you’ll learn more about what the Full Moon means in Gemini, activate your throat chakra, as well as journey with your Angels to unlock the magical cornucopia of abundance + prosperity! And of course leave time for burning at the end!

My Lesson in Surrender at Kundalini Yoga Graduation

Just one week ago, I completed my Kundalini Yoga Teacher training. It was a culmination of many hours, classes, daily meditation, readings and workshops over the span of 6 months. There was ego defiance, moments of bliss, connections with beautiful, spirited souls and yes, even tiredness for those morning Sadhanas we had to attend at 4:30am. And I did it. I completed something that was bigger than me and when you go through an experience as such, your world starts to expand too.

I was gifted with the spiritual name Sahej Anand, which means “lioness who finds bliss in the present moment and spreads joy to others”. It rang so true to my soul. A big part of my awakening 5 years ago was learning this radical concept of being present and feeling a sense of obligation to raise awareness to others as well. All in my best efforts to deliver with a smile of course!

And on my final day of Kundalini teacher training, I received my test from the universe. To really see if the spiritual teachings could be applied when reality hit. It was an early morning start, so I took a cab to Golden Bridge, where my training was being held. In a daze, I slipped out of the vehicle and up to the lofty yogic space. It was only a few moments until I realized my phone was no longer with me. I went into a sheer panic. Not my phone. Not now. I was able to track it and see that it had made it’s way over to the East Village, however there was nothing more I could do but wait. In my distraught state, I couldn’t participate in the group activities and instead curled up in a ball on my mat and replayed how upset I was that this was happening. And what disturbed me more wasn’t so much the fact that I may need to buy a new phone and the added inconvenience. Nope, it was the pure realization that I was addicted to being connected to an outside source at all times…

At that point something started to shift. I realized I was upset because of MY problems, MY desires, MY needs. When the meaning of this whole training really had nothing to do with me. It had to do with something far greater, and to find the discipline to step to the side of my ego to explore it. From there, more voices started to come through, reminding me of my spiritual name. That all that really matters is this present moment. The rest will sort itself out. In the meantime, I simply had to surrender. Surrender to the idea that I knew better. Surrender to things going my way. And ultimately, surrender to thinking I knew what was best for me. So I let go. Hard.

The next thing I knew my body rose up into meditation and I was smiling the whole rest of the morning. I felt the pure joy of what it was like to be completely one with spirit and to not have any worries of any outside circumstances. Quite simply, it was bliss.

My Kundalini sister who had been graciously tracking my phone, alerted me to a change in it’s location. It was still chilling in the same spot, however the word “rebirth” appeared in it’s place. I knew it was the Angels way of signaling me that I was accepting my lesson and everything was going to be okay. I demonstrated that when in a crisis I could apply my spiritual linkage to see me through.

Shortly after, a woman named Sophia rang my friend’s phone to assure me she had my device. She thought I had left it at her after party, which clearly had not occurred being at yoga since the early morning. She went on further to say that she’d be near Golden Bridge and would drop it off that afternoon. Just like that, my phone had found it’s way home to me. I didn’t have do a thing.

And again, this is more than just losing a phone. It was a lesson in surrender and being truly present. That nothing is rightfully yours until you can truly prove you’d be okay without it. That goes for anything, relationships, money, food, jobs… you name it. The universe is the driving force and when we can be the passenger and not bark out the directions from the back seat we come to find that we can be delivered exactly where we need to be. I fully believe my phone was returned to me only because I made the choice to be okay without it and to trust. To be able to sit with myself in the present and not ruminate the possible scenarios in my mind.

I invite you to use this as an opportunity to see the areas in your life you may be too attached to. Where you may think you know best and if anything were to get in the way you’d be a mess. Realize that divine intervention is a gift. It’s an exploration into the unknown, a deeper side of your being you may not have seen otherwise. It can be so exhausting to always have to be the one in control. So what if there was another way? And all it required of you was to trust? When we flow into that stream of faith, we open up the space for possibilities. And with such a vast and infinite universe we live in, I’m pretty sure an opportunity or two will land it’s way on your path.
