How to create the life of your dreams!

i'm sure many of you watched the oscar's like i did last week, and were in complete awe of their talent! the inspirational seed that birth's the creative expression in all aspects of the entertainment industry is truly amazing. inspiration is your heart singing.

it's the creative spark that lies within each and every one of us. what is it that you find yourself constantly thinking about, or drawn to? it could be anything. it's your passion and your interest that's unique to only you.

the only difference that separates a celeb from a non-celeb, is that they followed their spark. often times, you'll hear their stories of living pay check to pay check and getting rejected over and over again, but their passion kept pulling them, and they let it guide them.

our hearts should be leading the way, not our heads.

yes, our intellect is very important too, but the heart should pave the way, and our mind should asses as we go. please don't underestimate your own intuition. when we're in tune with our heart, when we listen, and become more conscious and less reactive, we won't be steered wrongly--i promise.

don't you find it fascinating how we can connect the dots in our lives, noticing how something you experienced a long time ago, is serving you today, in a way you would never have guessed it to?

this is your creation unfolding.

you're designing your life each and every day, gently being tugged in different directions as your heart desires. usually at the time, it doesn't make any sense, but you were drawn to that person, that thing, that adventure because the little voice inside you told you to go for it.

to live a fulfilled life, our source of inspiration must be completely activated! we are the author of our own story. every word that's spoken is written, and is a result of our thoughts (often subconscious). once it's written, it's put into action for manifestation. we can choose the life that serves us best.

just start.

it's really that simple, just start to let your heart lead the way, and guide you to do the things that bring you joy and inspiration. stop telling yourself that you'll be happy when you 'finally have that dream home, or that dream job, or that dreamy love'. everything is at your fingertips right now--just access it!

make a list of what brings you joy.

for me, i love healthy food, daily walks, exploring, reading, researching, organizing, massages, music, yoga etc. if you start prioritizing doing at least one of the things that bring you joy each day, before your responsibilities, your life will change, and you will become happy, peaceful and fulfilled--finally.

i'm sure many of you are rolling your eyes now, saying, 'yea kate, in a dream world i wouldn't have to work, etc. etc. etc...'

this is your lack of faith in the abundance you're entitled to.

when you start filling yourself up first, you will feel the unconditional love and support from the universe, and you will align yourself with the ebb and flow of the constant giving and receiving, effortlessly flowing, creative outpouring, that is YOU.

you're only depleting yourself when you operate from a place of 'i have to, i can't, it's not that easy, etc...' because you're not letting the essence of your unique self shine through!

when you fill yourself up with love for yourself, you naturally give love everywhere you go, so don't for a second think you're being selfish!

just start--today. do one thing that inspires you. you won't want to go another day not doing it. who knows, your little love for doodling, could turn into a masterpiece of art someday! just look at all that came before us, and how their little 'vision, their call to create' has left behind a legacy. your gifts are to be shared with the world! that is your soul's purpose.

if you don't know what makes you happy, you need to meditate! go within.

find your soul's purpose with this meditation/mantra:

wahe guru wahe jio. chanted for 11 minutes with hands interlaced in front of the solar plexus, eyes closed and focused at the third eye. change for the next 11 minutes, bringing your hands up to your heart center while hands are still interlaced, but extend the pointer fingers up.

download the cd, and find the mantra on track 3:

if you know what pulls you, let it already!

trust the process and LET GO!

the more you control, the longer it's going to take for you to get what you want out of life. i'm not telling you to be irresponsible, i'm just suggesting that you ignite that creative expression of who you are each and every day.

be the person you want to be, live the life you want to live, NOW.

trust yourself.

in health and happiness,


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!
