Transform and Heal with these tools

sept. 22 marked the fall equinox for 2012. we are now in our last quarter of the mayan calendar and it's time to get busy to face what lies ahead! since then, i've been riding the waves of transformation and healing that the universe is providing.

adding to this very significant, auspicious time, the full moon shone bright this weekend, which enhanced my experience at a vibrational sound healing event last night. listening to the tibetan singing bowls and gongs from all over the world for an hour was truly blissful.

it is amazing how much healing is abundant here on earth - from the food we eat, to age old yoga poses, through meditations, voice, and sound  - it is all connected to the source of light.

from eye contact, to physical touch, to a smile, we all have the capacity to heal and uplift others. it brings me great joy to be in the presence of such intuitive healers along my path, one of which, is my lovely yoga teacher, michele demelio of naam yoga in west barnstable, cape cod, ma., who led our fall equinox class, based on the teachings of master and mystic, Dr. Levry.

she shared some self healing techniques with us, giving me great pleasure in taking responsibility in sharing with all of you!

but first, please check out www.rootlight.com for an extensive amount of information on healing.

drink. from a copper cup, that is.

please buy yourself one - Dr. Levry has stressed the importance of placing boiling water in a cup at night before you go to bed and drinking it in the morning for many healing benefits.


your smile can uplift others and illuminate the world. it's very simple and contagious.

community. commUNITY.

the essence of oneness. it's such an important part of life. our soul's purpose is to connect with other's, and the best way to do that is by getting involved with the life that surrounds you. find out where you can put your gifts to good use and be of service to others. maybe it's through your yoga studio, or fitness class, or local businesses or restaurants - actively look into events going on in your area through your local newspaper or magazine and come together.

listen to triple mantra everyday.

this is such a powerful mantra that removes internal and external blockages/challenges in your life, allowing you to raise your vibration and stay in a 'safe space' to evolve to your highest self. download it on: http://rootlight.com/music_triple_mantra.htm

during the fall season, according to chinese medicine, the lung and large intestine are actively detoxing, which is why we see a lot of colds and flus. the accumulation of mucus trying to leave the body creates unwanted symptoms.

there are many home remedies for this, but incorporating garlic will improve your immune system and aid in decongestion.

a cure for the cold, from the book, "The Divine Doctor" by Dr. Levry, states that before you go to bed, combine 2 parts ginger, 1 part black pepper, 5 parts basil leaves and 1/2 garlic clove boiled in almond milk and sweetened with brown rice syrup. then drink.

i'm currently doing my own home remedy per my macrobiotic counselor, Warren Kramer's orders because of a 'fat depost' that's accumulated at my wrist - which directly correlates to my lung meridian. sounds gross, but i promise it is not - just looks like a little cyst the size of a pea. i'm drinking daikon tea each morning for 10 days and am watching it slowly disappear - it is fascinating!

daikon is a magical healing food that helps remove old and deep animal fat deposits from the body. the

tea relaxes the body and liver. bring 1/2 cup dried daikon to a boil with 2 c. water then simmer for 20 min. it tastes sweet and yummy, but stinks up the house, so beware!

keep riding the waves of transformation and evolution this season! in love and good health...

Set your intention and then LET GO.

Naam Yoga Teacher Training, Cabowell, this post is long overdue! happy summer to everyone! i hope you are all enjoying the expansive energy that is summer - relaxing and spending long filled days with the sun on your face and loved ones nearby. i most certainly am! i'm so happy to have you all to report to since i've taken you along in my journey - whether you like it or not! as you all know, this year has been one for peeling off many layers of my onion to get to the core - tears and all! i'm realizing how much courage it takes to really face my challenges and struggles head on, and have now turned a big corner to start reaping the benefits!

a couple posts ago i told you about my manifestation workshop, my life coaching workshop, and my harmonyum training.

i knew i needed to make a change about a year ago, but didn't have a clear vision of where i was headed, but the universe presented these opportunities to me to start to see what type of life i wanted to create.

i was able to raise my level of consciousness and see what was, and wasn't working for me in my life. all that wasn't working for me served as lessons and stepping stones to many blessings, so i wouldn't change a thing, but i am fascinated by the power behind the work i've been doing!

i couldn't see it at the time, but i laughed to myself the other day, realizing that the silly intention that i set in the manifestation workshop back in march with jennifer pastiloff, a yoga teacher in L.A., has actually come to fruition.

my actions were put into motion a couple weeks ago when i decided to quit my job, pack up my life in LA, and move back to my hometown on Cape Cod, without a plan and with complete surrender in letting go.

as silly as this sounds, the first exercise during the manifestation workshop was to complete a sentence starting with "I am...". for whatever reason i filled the blank with 'carefree'.

'i am carefree' - what a silly little word.

clearly i knew i had been feeling too stagnant for too long and wanted to lighten up my life - well i've certainly manifested that, and it feels oh - so - good!!!

i am taking a much deserved shavasana and allowing all the work i've done for myself to work for me.

i'm relaxing, healing, letting go and letting God...there's so much healing space in nothingness.

i hope you too may enjoy yourself a shavasana and let the sunlight heal you where it needs to.

look around you at the dazzling beauty in nature. make a pitcher of homemade ice tea and drink it from a wine glass. or use peaches from the farmer's market to bake a peach crumble.

organize a potluck dinner with friends or family.sit outside to a meal. look at old photos. go for a long leisure bike ride. go to an impromptu baseball game. sit in a park and catch up with a friend. lay in a hammock. cook new recipes.

these are just a few of the many activities i've been able to do in my new carefree lifestyle!

i hope you can enjoy some of them too!
