I believe most people are born with the ability to sense what is going on in the present moment, and also what will happen in the future. Conditioning from how we were raised, past relationships, or religion, can often times suppress our psychic gifts because we are told it is ‘evil’ or wrong.
In order to reconnect with those parts of yourself there are activities and exercises you can do to reawaken your intuition. For me, I started by writing down my dreams, as well as thoughts and feelings I had about a person or situation. Using these notes I would make observations on the accuracy of my perceptions and predictions. Read the rest of this entry »
When I read for a client, I am not just reading their energy, but I am also reading the energy of their loved ones, co-workers, friends, their home environment, as well as their work environment and community. During a psychic reading in can become evident, for example, that the home environment is toxic, stagnant, or energetically polluted, which has a negative effect on my client.
This pollution is not always metaphysical in origin. Sometimes it is caused by a physical contaminant. For example, it can be a mildew issue, which will make me smell mold and sense moisture, like a smothering humid feeling, or see black mildew spots on a psychic level. The toxicity can also be due to a leak of actual chemicals, bugs or something else that has become a threat to the client’s health. Read the rest of this entry »
I have been teaching White Tantric Yoga for 15 years. The premise of White Tantric Yoga, is to unite two people together. It is also designed to connect each person the to the Divine, as well as to connect each individual’s sexuality to their spirituality.
Our sexuality is linked to the second chakra. The color is orange. It is located just below the navel point. It is also connected to our creativity. If you are a dancer, an artist, a musician, or a poet, this is where that vibrant creative energy comes from. If there is any sexual trauma in this area, it can block creative energy, block the ability to connect your sexuality and your spirituality, created physical issues with the sex organs and can create depression and anxiety.

From the darkest places comes the brightest of light…” When I first read this statement on a piece of community art, on display at a Yoga festival, I was astounded. I stood still, with my Yoga mat strung over my shoulder, my water bottle in hand, and a plethora of memories racing through my mind.
That moment instantly brought back my traumatic, abusive childhood, and destructive youth. I had come from some very dark places, until I ended up morbidly obese, depressed and suicidal at 30 years of age. I had to change my life and slowly I began to choose what I sensed was good for me.

I have been teaching White Tantric Yoga for 15 years. It is based on the Kama Sutra, or the Kama Sutra is based on White Tantric Yoga. I incorporate these teachings in my partner workshops and find it to be a great way to lure men into the class! These teachings are not pornographic or about teaching wild sexual positions. It is actually the opposite. It is in fact designed to remove those things from our lives that disconnect our sexuality from our spirituality, such as porn, perversion, control, violence and infidelity.

I read an article by Sally Kempton some time ago, and this paragraph stuck with me: “In the Indian tradition, life is said to have four aims — wealth, pleasure, ethical conduct, or goodness, and enlightenment—and they are meant to be held in balance.” She then asks what your life would be like if you were to cultivate each of these areas equally?
So many thoughts came though my head when I read this. So many endless possibilities. What if we were to set the intention every morning to equally cultivate these four aims? How could our life experience change and be richer, more exciting, more fulfilling? Read the rest of this entry »
We are very affected by the colors in our homes, work environment and by the colors of food we eat and the colors we wear. Color permeates our very existence.
In Kundalini yoga, it is the tradition that teachers wear white outfits made of natural fibers, with a white covering over their heads. Just like the color white deflects the sun and black absorbs it, white also deflects negativity and the color black attracts and absorbs it.
Teaching Kundalini can attract students who are very evolved, and also many who are really struggling and sometimes even emotionally unstable. Wearing white can protect a teacher from the negative energy that may emanate from a person in class and is sometimes directed toward, or projected onto the teacher. Read the rest of this entry »
Over the years I’ve repeatedly heard the suggestion to “breathe” or “take a deep breath”. The suggestion is always emphasized in meditation and yoga, and it comes up a lot whenever someone receives or gives a massage. It’s also included in energy healing and the martial arts, and it’s even mentioned when you are preparing to yank off a bandage.
There is something powerful and transformative about the breath and breathing when it is combined with intention. I’ve noticed how I can change emotionally, spiritually and physiologically when I breathe deeply. From time to time I’ve also realized the answer to a problem as I invoked a deep breath.
