Things that appear a miracle to some people may be normal to others. Technology changes our perspective on what could be possible in the real world. “Magic” is really just advanced technology or spiritual understanding.
Over 8 million TONS of plastic waste end up in the ocean every year.
And 1 million new plastic bottles are created every minute. It’s not possible to think we can recycle all this crap without harming the environment. It has to end. #BanSingleUsePlastics
We must take responsibility for our actions. We have to evaluate what we are doing and find a better way to live symbiotically with nature. New plant-based sustainable materials are being developed every year, and if more people support these products, the demand for better and more sustainable technology will become the status quo. Conscious consumerism will have a substantial impact on the markets.
Ideas For A Conscious Consumer:
-Support Biodegradable Alternatives to Plastic. Use Bamboo Toothbrushes, Sugar Wax Instead of Shave, Paper over Plastic!
-Be Wary Of Packaging Materials! Plastic and Styrofoam are terrible. Support brands who made the switch to sustainable packaging- like glass or cartons.
-Avoid All Single Use Plastic and Let The Store Know You Don’t Support Single Use Plastics!
-Shop at your local Farmers Markets and Co-Ops where you can buy in bulk and avoid packaging.
-Upcycle Your Trash. Make art out of your plastic trash. Keep it out of the ocean by using it for something else.
If you never heal,
you end up bleeding on people who didn’t hurt you. “
A lot of our stress streams from our minds, to manifest in our shoulders and upper back. When I see people are walking around with really tight traps and upper back muscles, I wonder if they ever truly relax. These simple asanas do an amazing job to release shoulder tension.
Directions: Grab a couple blocks or books 📚
Place one block horizontal and flat, grab another block, set it perpendicular to the first block on its highest setting. Line up the upper spine with the elevated block. Lay back for 3 mins.
Pose 2: Lay a block horizontal and flat, place another block on top on its highest setting. Line up between your shoulders with the blocks. Lay back on the block, feeling upper back open and release. Lay back for 2 mins. .
Kombucha is one of my Go-To remedies for acne breakouts.
Acne is painful and stressful. The best remedy I have found so far to cure recurrent breakouts is my diet. Kombucha is one drink in particular that helped restore my skin after I suffer from an extreme acne breakout.
Kombucha is a fermented drink with live cultures and probiotics.
Acne can be caused by an overgrowth of Candida BACTERIA in the gut.
More Potential Benefits of Drinking Kombucha
Every year, 8-14 billion pounds of trash are dumped into the Ocean.
Single Use Plastic Bags have an average lifespan on 1000 years. They create toxic chemicals which pollute waterways and animals. Not to mention when they break down into smaller pieces, they are ingested by animals and fish, and us! Ban single use plastic bags. Support a cleaner world.
Follow The Isha Foundation to support incentives to ban single use plastic bags.
I learned what it looks like for more than a third of Indian children who live in extreme poverty.
India has one of the worlds largest populations of children- and more than a third of these children live in extreme poverty.
We bought the ashram new books, pencils, brooms, etc, and it was so cheap because India’s currency is nothing compared to the dollar.
If you want to support the ashram, please donate and follow their amazing adventures at @yogamission9 @chandramaulitrust 🙏🏼❤️✨
Time for some alien yoga 👽
Hey aliens, have you heard of Nauli Kriya? This strange move has been practiced for thousands of years. It uses the muscles of the stomach to massage all organs in the stomach. And it is great to practice everyday for vitality and health. It's especially great if your liver is feeling sluggish from too many toxins 😊 I do it before I eat. It feels nice. Have you tried this move? Check out www.cult-intuition.com for a full guide on how to practice #NauliKriya ✨ . . . . . #yogi #yogachick #yogalove #yogalover #yogini #yogagram #indigochild #believe #alien #kriyas #kriya #hathayoga #hatha #yogilife
Nauli Kriya is used in Hatha yoga for detoxifying the abdominal organs through a stimulating massage technique, using the muscles of the stomach.
By isolating these muscles and moving the stomach, we cleanse our internal organs, the spleen, liver, gallbladder, large intestine, small intestine, kidneys, pancreas, and more.
Nauli Kriya is formed of three movements:
Vama Nauli when muscles are isolated to the left, Dakshina Nauli when muscles are contracted to the right, and Madhya Nauli when both muscles are contracted toward the center.
Nauli Kriya is not easy, sometimes it can take 3 months to a year to be able to practice this move.
How to Practice Nauli Kriya
- Stand wide legged, knees bent, hands on thighs. Take a deep breath in, and then force breath out with a hissing sound.
- Contract the Uddiyana Bandha. Hold breath and locate your abs. Contract your abs out (Madhya). Try to contract abs to the left, contract to the center, and then to the right. When you are done exhale and release.
If this is your first time, practice each move by itself, until you have it down. Please don’t strain yourself. This is an advanced practiced and can cause issues if done incorrectly. It can take 3 months to a year to get this down. It is recommended practice only 8x per 24 hours.
Good luck and if you have any questions, message me!

Sensuality and sexuality are very different.
Tune in later this week for a tutorial on sensual touch!
Rare Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse
During the peak of the eclipse, the moon will be in the sign of Cancer, starting in Leo.
The Goddess Manifested.
Look up feminine symbols like Mary, Athena, Oshun, Lakshmi, Quan Yin and other powerful revolutionary women.
This is an especially powerful time for women leaders. An eclipse encourages revolutionary action.
Why do we feel this moon so strongly? We are 60% water and the Moon controls the tides. Enough said.
Feminine energy wants to have fun and create and make it all beautiful
Be wild. Be sensual.
Embrace the beautiful things of life.
Invite in feminine energy by clearing old energy from the home, honor your body with lavish baths with oils and flowers and salts. Dance.
Get inspired by your space, within your body and wherever you call home.
Those on the west coast can see the total lunar eclipse, at 4 am tomorrow morning. The next New Moon will be a solar eclipse to bookend this cycle, occurring the night of February 15th after Valentine’s day. This is a powerful time for magic.
Happy Super Bloody Blue Moon Eclipse ☄️
Yoga is more than simply practicing the postures (called Asanas).
A true yogi follows the “8 Limbs of Yoga”, a practical application of philosophy, ethics, and energy work to obtain enlightenment.
One of the eight limbs is called the Yamas, which is a set of 5 ethical and moral philosophies regarding life.
Ahimsa is the yama for physical, mental, and emotional nonviolence.
This means avoiding gossip or intentionally hurting others with our words or actions.
Harmful thoughts, judgements, and criticisms of others, are damaging- even with good intentions. Ahimsa encourages the practice of compassion, understanding and letting go of the future outcomes. I surrender my frustrations, and allow Ahimsa to influence my daily practice, my flow in the world becomes one of peace. I am not perfect but I am making progress, and I find it easy to let things go without anger.
Ahimsa inspired me to practice Sat Ta Na Ma, a Buddhist mantra for compassion. This is one of my favorite mantras, and I chant it into many of my practices. One can shift the vibration of an entire space with Sa Ta Na Ma. Try it during your next meditation.
