Affirmation: I AM united with Source. I  breathe life into faith and love to deepen my connection with the divine.

I just finished my morning meditation. The last few days my meditation has consisted of 3 mantras I’ve been chanting along with Deva Premal. I start with the Moola Manta (which is an invocation), then chant Om Gum Ganapatayei Namaha, and finish with the Gayatri Mantra.

The Moola Mantra  evokes the living God. It asks for protection and freedom from sorrow and suffering. It is a prayer that manifests the divine through love and compassion in an earthly form to protect us.

Om Ganapatayei Namaha is the chant for Ganesh, the remover of obstacles. It opens us up to bring positive changes and our desires to life. I chant this 108 times.

The Gayatri Mantra is a very highly revered mantra and is one of the oldest and most powerful. It is the mantra of enlightenment. It is believed that by chanting the Gayatri mantra you will fulfill your true life work and find happiness.

I’ve been doing this set the past 3 mornings, and I’m continuing for the next 21 days. I had been doing some chanting meditations and I felt called to put these 3 together. At the time, I wasn’t clear on the meaning behind each one, but now I can see why I put them together. If you are interested in trying this with me it takes about 30 minutes to do all 3. Something tells me it will take us to a very divine place. Just click on each of the links above to access the Deva Premal YouTube videos for each of the Mantras or you can download them from iTunes.

I’m on my way to Shakti Fest out in Joshua Tree for the next 3 days (May 17 – 19). Its a festival of yoga, kirtan music and workshops celebrating the divine feminine. I’m really looking forward to the experience and basking in the vibratory glow. I’ll be there with the Live In Wonder crew so if you happen to be there come find me.

Connecting to Divine Source

The Mount Shasta Pyramid

Affirmation: I AM connected to divine source. I open and allow myself to receive deep healing. 

I recently went on a retreat to Mount Shasta where I didn’t have any internet access so if you were wondering where I’ve been, that’s where. I’d never been to Mount Shasta but have heard lots about its vortex energy so I wanted to check it out.

While I was up there I discovered the Mount Shasta Pyramid. The pyramid is located on the mystical slopes of the mountain and stands over 15 feet tall. The Guardian of the Pyramid is named Ra-Ke-Da, and the pyramid is dedicated to the Goddess Isis. The arch angel Metatron and ascended master St. Germain are also present. I have a strong connection with the Goddess Isis which I developed through practising the Isis asana in my spiritual work, as well as with St. Germain from reading The I AM Discourses, so when I learned of the pyramid I felt very drawn to experience it.

It was built by Antera and Omaran of the Center for Soul Evolution. You can contact them to make an appointment to do an hour meditation session or you can even go deeper and do a vision quest. Since it was my first time entering the pyramid I opted to just do the hour meditation.

I entered through a tunnel and climbed up into the pyramid. I was immediately affected by its energy. I felt a sense of respect, humility and gratitude upon entering. I sat right in the middle on their handmade Rainbow Rug and began my meditation. The most profound thing that seemed to happen to me while meditating was the intensity of the tingling sensation I had and the slight tears that came to my eyes.  I felt an overwhelming sense of unconditional love.

I was told while in the pyramid if you focus your thoughts on a specific issue or state affirmations they will be greatly amplified. You can also ask questions. Sometimes you’ll receive answers while in the pyramid, other times they will come shortly after. My meditation included some chanting, and a question; of which I can say was answered only a few days later. Overall, I’d say it was a very powerful meditation.

Now most of us don’t have access to meditate in a pyramid on a daily basis but we can all connect with divine source no matter where we are. So let’s take a moment now to do that.

  • Take a deep breath in, hold it for the count of three, 1 – 2 – 3, and release.
  • Now say outloud.
  • I AM connected to divine source. I open and allow myself to receive deep healing.
  • I AM connected to divine source. I open and allow myself to receive deep healing.
  • I AM connected to divine source. I open and allow myself to receive deep healing.
  • Take another deep breath and feel the love all around and within you.

Now go about your day, and every now and again when you think of it recite the affirmation.

Have a great day! I must sign off now. I’m off to explore Palm Springs with my mom.

With love, light and faerie dust, ✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫

Steady Progress

Cathedral Rock, Sedona, AZ

 Affirmation: I acknowledge my progress on this life journey to align all my thoughts and feelings with love, peace and harmony. I practise the law of attraction and know I’m on the right path.

We are three days into the Chopra Center’s 21 Day Meditation Challenge, how are you feeling? I just finished today’s guided meditation and I’m certainly filled with a sense of peace and well-being. It’s good to acknowledge and recognize our progress, so take a moment today to Thank Yourself for the work you are doing. The more we can acknowledge where we’ve come the more we are encouraged and allow ourselves to continue.

Thanks so much to everyone who has joined The Meditation Challenge with me. It feels good to know I’m sharing the experience with you. And I’d also like to take this moment to thank everyone who has been reading and following my blog. I feel so much love and gratitude for you all. You are all such a blessing in my life.

My BFF Bea has left on a jetplane to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico today. She started a new blog called Bea, Anywhere that gives lots of great insights and info into the different places she travelled to so check it out! We traveled from the “happiest place on earth” Disneyland – to sin city Las Vegas – to the magnificent Grand Canyon Skywalk – to alien encounters at Area 51 – to mystical Sedona – to the mysterious ghost town Jerome – to being “surprised” on the way to Palm Springs [there is city named Surprise in Arizona] – to the magic and illusion of the Magic Castle in Hollywood – all which led us right back to the place we left our hearts, the city of summer love San Francisco.

We had an amazing journey together. It was full of magic and adventure no matter where we were.  During our downtime we watched copious video clips of two adorable rising stars, my new favorite fairies Princess Sophia Grace and Princess Rosie.

Thank you again. I will see you in meditation bliss! Namaste.

With love, light and faerie dust, ✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫

A Meditation Challenge

Affirmation: Through the power of meditation I tranform my life and discover the untapped potential that rests within me. I live the life of my dreams.

The Chopra Center is having a 21 Day Meditation Challenge. Care to join me and the many others who have committed themselves to taking on the challenge?

It’s said that it takes 21 days to get yourself into a habit or daily ritual. What do you think your life could look like, would look like if you committed yourself to 21 consistent days of meditation?

I’ve practised various forms of meditation for many years now. I’m not always consistent, but I do know that when I dedicate myself and have a daily ritual my life shifts and changes in miraculous ways. It always goes in the direction that makes me happiest too. Why wouldn’t I just do it all the time then? Good question. Let’s just say I let myself get in the way sometimes. You know the part that likes to distract or create reasons for not doing it.

I’m dedicated to continuing to make my life a powerful journey of following my joy, so I’m taking on the Chopra Challenge. Let’s do it together and see where we end up 21 days from now.

It’s easy! All you have to do is register and give yourself a bit of time to meditate every day for 21 days. We can all make the time. The Chopra Center is even going to provide us with free guided meditations.  You can Register Here.

The Challenge starts February 2oth.

See you in bliss! Namaste.

Conscious Visualization

Affirmation: I know the power of conscious visualization. I visualize my true hearts desires and put complete trust in life to manifest them.

I do know the power in conscious visualization. There are so many things and moments in my life that I have seen manifest through my visualization exercises. The key to it is that while you are visualizing you also have to balance it out with the power of feeling.

When you visualize draw as clear picture of it as you can, and while you are doing that be sure to feel yourself in a state of happiness and gratitude. Then you have to let it go and put complete trust in life that it will come. Basically, go about your day focusing on what’s before you. Be present. Then let life do the rest.

Take some time each day visualizing yourself living a healthy, happy, prosperous and meaningful life. If you have something show up which pulls you away from this feeling, don’t give it your energy.  Instead see only what it is you desire.

In those moments, when you go about your day, and you happen to notice what you’ve been visualizing has manifested, be sure to acknowledge it and say Thank You.  That will help you continue to see the magic, give it more power, and learn to master it.
