It's Easter! Resurrect!

Sat Nam,

I am loving all the abundant life energy available in Spring. It is truly a rebirth every year. It also seems to be the time of year that I notice the vending machine effect the most. That's when think of something, and before I even pray it out loud it is there! Like God is a vending machine. It's fun if I don't get attached to it.

I'm learning that I don't always pray for the right things. Ha! Shouldn't surprise me. What I think about or God forbid, worry about, is a form of prayers, too. So I have been praying that God will please ignore those misguided prayers, and teach me how to pray for what I really want and need. Or even better, what They really want to give me. This requires being able to imagine things one can't imagine. Normally. On one's own. Without activating the God within.

For me, this year I have been guided to go deep into my body. My natural tendency is escape. To live in the mind, or out of the mind in the ethers and blissed out on meditation. But this can actually be a self-abuse to the body if it is not balanced.

Magical happenings began when I committed to being here, IN my body, IN the world. It is the kingdom of heaven on earth, after all.

But deep down I just wanted to be in heaven in heaven. And while the yoga is a body thing, it can also be an escape the body thing. I wasn't taking good care of myself. I was doing some energy healing for myself, but it was all still with the attempt to leave the body. Since January, after body some wake up calls I couldn't ignore, I committed to weekly massage, as well as some other physical self-care things, like acupuncture and cranial sacral work.  My amazing Christ-conscious masseuse comes to my house and puts his hands on my body and takes me to a place of loving being in a body. It is truly ecstatic. It took a month or two to actually feel like it was helping, but I'm glad I hung in there.

I am also just started a 21 day fast/cleanse with the support of a group of people who are knowledgeable about the body. It involves cutting out certain allergenic foods and lots of self-love and self care. I felt really inspired to do it and I am so glad I did. I'm on day 6 and I already notice beautiful emotional and physical benefits, and lots of creative outpouring and inspiration. And about 5 people have commented on the radiance of my eyes in the last few days. So, something is working.

I am so glad that all of this rebirth is possible through Christ's miracle that we celebrate today. He did say that we could all do the things he did, and even greater things (John 14:12). It's so important to remember that this is all possible because of him and also because of the body. He couldn't have done his work without it either. His word was to resurrect his consciousness and his spirit over his body. This is the Christ work that we are all called to do, too. I would love to invite you to think about this today as you pray and meditate and celebrate. Sat Nam and Mozel Tov.

Rest on Every Side

This is a 10 year (2+0+1+7). The year that is related to the 10th body, which is your radiant body. One of the benefits of a strong radiant body is that it can neutralize all darkness that comes within a 25 feet radius. A strong radiant body will also promote harmony over a 25+ mile radius.

I used to dream and long for this--to live in my own peace bubble. I wanted to be the bulletproof spiritual warrior. And I was promised I would be... and then one day I was. Don't get me wrong, I still have stuff go wrong and I still have many imperfections, and I have to keep up my practice to keep this going, but this is a real space a person can live in, without evil. Without adversarial happenings. 

I know people disagree. They think they need opposition. But it's just the leverage you can use to get above it. Just this week I was wondering about this and I was guided to this scripture. King Solomon is speaking: 

"But now the Lord my God hath given me rest on every side, so that there is neither adversary nor evil occurrent." (1 Kings 5:4)

Amazing, huh! It's possible. It happens. It can be you. And then the next scripture made me smile: 

"And behold, I purpose to build an house unto the name of the Lord my God." 

This was a confirmation to me that Wahe Guru House is a gift to me and also my gift to God as I created it first with my desire and then together God and I manifested it. (The radiant body is also your power of manifestation.) If you don't know about Wahe Guru House, I just manifested a house that I have consecrated as a sanctuary for peace and for the healing and perfecting of my people, which is whoever is reading this and feels drawn to come. So if you are feeling the pull to Wahe Guru House, let me know. I have small retreats here, and I welcome traveling yogis or yogis who want to come just for a private get away and to share sadhana. You can email to inquire about the calendar.

For those who are now super motivated to strengthen their radiant body, I just taught a radiant body kriya and meditation in my weekly class, which I record and post on SoulTribeOnline. Premium members can access it here in the Tribecasts section. 

If you have not yet heard about SoulTribeOnline, it's my biggest news of the year. It's an online yoga channel with new kundalini yoga videos added weekly, from me and other master teachers. It is also a SOCIAL SANCTUARY, or a high vibe social network for conscious people who want to connect in positive ways, both online, and in real life.

Please check it out and share it by using this link: . And try a month of premium membership for free when you use the promo code SOULTRIBELOVE. It's free to join, and many of the videos are free. Or you can get access to all the latest videos (Tribecasts) for $20/month.)

I have so much faith in your ability to achieve this rest on every side. First you have to believe it is possible, then follow your Soul and keep up. 

When The Spirit Moves You Into The Uncharted

This last few months I have seen a lot of people moved around, some to obscure places, where they don't know anyone, where there is no cultural support for their lifestyle (for example, being vegetarian in Tennessee) and where there isn't much conscious community.  I have been reading the Book of Mormon with my daughter this year. We read very slowly, a few verses at a time, but it helps me to ponder them deeply.

Here's what I learned recently. When God sends Lehi's family into the wilderness to eventually set up their own new community in the promised land, he didn't send them alone. He knew that Lehi's sons and daughter's would need husbands and wives, so he sent them back to get Ishmael's family to come with them. 

"And it came to pass that the Lord did soften the heart of Ishmael, and also his household, insomuch that they took their journey with us down into the wilderness to the tent of our father."  (1 Ne 7:5)

The Lord can soften hearts to get people spouses, or friends or other kinds of cool peeps for companionship in whatever wilderness you may feel led to, whether it is a new job or a new town or a new school. If you feel alone where you are, I invite you to pray for more friends/people to come into your life or your physical orbit, town, etc. (I also invite you to play the mantra Rakhay Rakhanahaar.) In this story in the Book of Mormon, Nephi and his brothers actually go back to Jerusalem to try to persuade Ishmael.

Using the Spirit, and sometimes a little human persuasion, we can build personal zion communities where we are, or where we are heading.  

And until then, remember we live in a wonderful connected age where you can reach out around the world in a second. So use your online community resources (like my new onling yoga channel and social sanctuary Soul Tribe), and I also like to make an effort several times a year to get together in person with my bigger community of people-- for example, at a retreat, a training, a yoga festival, or a reunion. I soak in all the learnings and good vibes I can, and come back renewed to keep building my outpost where I am.

Much love to you. I hope this email finds you well, and I hope to see you on Soul Tribe or at a retreat or other live event soon.

Discover Christ Energy In Bali

Bali, Indonesia is known as the Island of the Gods. There are an estimated 20,000 temples and shrines in Bali! Isn’t that amazing? Though Indonesia is predominately a Muslim country, most of the country’s Hindu minority live on the island of Bali. Balinese Hinduism has roots in Indian Hinduism and Buddhism, and they also adopted traditions of the indigenous people. This influence strengthened the belief that the gods and goddesses are present in all things.

Devotion and worship pervades every aspect of traditional life in Bali. I love this. There is so much we can learn from this kind of lifestyle. Perhaps this is why Bali is so attractive to tourists seeking to increase their consciousness, especially yogis of all kinds.

If you haven’t heard about it yet, I am teaching a 7 day/night retreat in Bali in August of this year (August 13-20, 2017) and I’m so excited to spend time there on the island. Though the Christian population in Bali is small, the Christ energy there is big. I can feel the pull from here. To find out what I mean, you might have just come. 

When Christ was in Palestine/Israel he told his disciples: 

 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. John 10:16 

After Christ’s death in Palestine in 33 AD, ancient texts now known as the Book of Mormon tell of his visit to the people in the Americas. These were some of the “other sheep” he was talking about:

 21 And verily I say unto you, that ye are they of whom I said: Other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. 3 Ne 15:21

But he didn’t stop there. He told them of other sheep…. on the isles of the sea. We don’t have all the ancient scriptures from all his visits to “other sheep” but I have a feeling that Bali is a spiritual hot spot for a reason. And I’m excited to go and learn from these people and the land and the spirit present there. 

If you’d like to join me, all levels are welcome. Spouses and family members are welcome, newbies welcome. One of the the best ways to learn about something is immerse yourself in an intensive experience. And as one of my friend’s husband said: "If I am going try yoga, it might as well be in Bali." 

Rooms are selling out though, so if you are serious about coming, please book as soon as possible. We have private bungalows at a retreat in the north of Bali right on the sea. The retreat includes 3 meals/day and all the yoga and group healing. You can also take advantage of the spa, dolphin excursions and other amazing sites around Bali in your plentiful free time.
