Being Love Letter

Dear Friends, I am pleased to say that the February edition Parvati Magazine is now live. Please enjoy the series of articles in this month’s issue exploring the theme of compassion. I am also very happy to share that the parvati.org research team of volunteers has found some clear, hard links illustrating the tie between popular consumer items and large oil companies. (YAY!) To launch our campaign to stop seismic testing in the Arctic Ocean, a bit more research still remains. The clock is ticking, so we need your help. If you can volunteer to do some research, or know someone who can, please contact me at parvati@parvati.org. Huge thank you in advance! As you know, we are also in the midst of a new website build for parvati.world. As part of its rebirth, we are rebranding my blogs with a new name: Being Love Letters. So from now on, I will be referring to my posts as such. I usually don’t post a Being Love Letter the week the new magazine issue goes live to give you space to enjoy the richness of its contents. I am in the midst of writing some new material as there has been a lot of growth in my life recently. My cup is feeling full and I look…

Meditation: You Are The World

Hello Friends, It has been an exceptionally busy fall as I prepare to launch a new website early in 2015, which includes an online TV channel full of inspirational content. The new not-for-profit, created in response to the Arctic seabed bombing, is now official! We got our incorporation papers just before Christmas. Our mission is to “work to support a healthy environment and healthy people so that we have a healthy world.” We now have a placeholder page in place at parvati.org. We are building it out behind the scenes right now! Please go there to sign the petitions, if you have not done so already. Also sign up to get notified when the full site goes live and of actions you can take in support. If you would like to help stop seismic bombing in the Arctic Ocean now, please email me at parvati@parvati.org. Specifically we are looking for those who can research the companies involved and those who can support marketing the campaigns. Our strategy is peacefully economic, rather than political. We wish to show the oil companies that consumers will not support seismic testing. This is why we need to know the companies involved that deal with the public. For more about this, please email me. In light of this recent call to…

Speaking Up About Arctic Seabed Bombing

This has been a busy week full of surprises. I was not expecting, while moving to the finish line on launching a new website, to start a not for profit organization. (The website looks amazing and I can’t wait to share it with you!) Such unexpected events help to keep us in touch with our purpose, in alignment with our soul voice, when we are willing to meet them fully. When I learned a week ago that the Canadian government has given clearance for oil companies to bomb the seabed of the Arctic Ocean, I felt profoundly shaken in the depth of my being. I could sense the Great Blue Whale totem animal, that drew me on my North Pole journey and that guided the powerful healing that followed, echoing through me with a resounding NO! I knew immediately that the sonic effect of these blasts would kill the magnificent whales and sea creatures. Before the oceans were permeated with ship traffic noise, the sounds emitted by whales were heard as far as four thousand miles away. On a particularly quiet day, tones would only have become inaudible after thirteen thousand miles – more than the diameter of the Earth. We cannot even begin to understand the subtlety of such communication – nor the harm we do…

North Pole Retrospective: Back in Toronto

Dear friends, A year ago this morning, back from the North Pole, I awoke from a powerful dream of the Goddess. I was far north. I had no sense of bearing. I was just very north, looking for my spiritual community. I met the Goddess there in a co-op building with food supplies. When I saw Her, I was surprised and overjoyed…

Ask Parvati 30: Creating Your Reality, Part 5: Purification Back To The One

Dear friends, A year ago today I visited a high school in Iqaluit before flying home to Toronto to conclude my life-changing North Pole journey.   North Pole Journey, Day Seven The school bell rings and triggers a Pavlovian response in me. A feeling of excitement and freedom surges through my body. The halls fill with noisy, boisterous, vibrantly alive students who emerge from small rooms. Soon the auditorium is flooded with dynamic bodies full of the very hormones I felt pulsating through the halls when I first walked in. I peek out of my dressing room door and see a room agitated and full of energy…   CREATING YOUR REALITY, PART 5: PURIFICATION BACK TO THE ONE (Continued from Welcome to Life School) We must learn to purify our thoughts, lessen our attachment to our ego in order to evolve. Seeing life as a mirror provides a wonderful humbling opportunity to do just that. When we understand that what we experience is a result of our thoughts and perceptions, we can grow and make changes, so that our life becomes more fulfilling and joyful. As our minds purify, eventually we become one with the Reality that we are love. Then, love is all we see. Once we have purified our minds, released our identification with…

Ask Parvati 30: Creating Your Reality – Part 4: Welcome To Life School

Dear friends, A year ago today was my last morning in Resolute Bay. North Pole Journey, Day Six: Back to Iqaluit We say our goodbyes to Chris at the inn, then Meghan at the airport who drives us to our departure. There is no doubt we are sad to leave. This has been an enormously important trip for each one of us, the likes of which seems still masked by a cloudy feeling that draws across my inner sight. I cannot quite see the magnitude of what this all means. All I know for sure is, like a child who marks their growth with lines on the inside of a doorjamb, the growth of my Self is marked on the doorjamb of my life by this trip to the North Pole…. ____________________________________________ Creating Your Reality, Part 4: Welcome To Life School (Continued from Life Is A Mirror) Seeing life as a mirror to our thoughts makes life our perfect school, the best place ever to evolve. We then see life constantly supporting our evolution, no matter what happens. We may experience difficulty. No problem! That is life showing us the way we have limiting beliefs, the way we need to grow, things we need to release, etc… If we are true spiritual seekers, this is great…

Ask Parvati 30: Creating Your Reality – Part 3: Life Is A Mirror

Dear friends, This week’s blog topic continues below, after I take a moment to pause and reflect on my North Pole journey. A year ago today we were in Resolute Bay, having returned from the North Pole, and we joined with Satish Sikha to unveil his green eco-silk on an iceberg. North Pole Journey: Day Five Satish pulls open his fabric from his jute carrying case. Sunanda, Sam and I take a portion to help him draw it open. Rishi runs his video camera up and down its length, capturing its green colour and message fluttering in the wind. Satish seems happy, despite shivering in the freezing cold. He has traveled so far for this moment. On this iceberg, in the middle of the Arctic Ocean, he exposes the hand-penned words of dignitaries from around the world as a call to ecological action in light of the melting polar ice. I am proud to hold the portion of the eco-silk fabric that I happened to sign… _______________________________________ Creating Your Reality: Part 3 – Life Is A Mirror (Continued from Reality (Capital “R”) and Reality (Lower Case “r”) ) When we think of ourselves as important and in control, we inevitably suffer. We become attached to matter (objects, people, places, things), feeling we have power over them.…

Ask Parvati 30: Creating Your Reality – Part 2: Reality (Capital “R”) and reality (Lower Case “r”)

Dear friends, Before we start today’s blog post, I would like to take a moment to remember that a year ago today, I landed at the top of the world. There, I performed and shot video for four of my songs. Then I spent a couple of hours in deep prayer and meditation, really tuning in to all beings and the planet. Thank you so much, again, for your support. Parvati North Pole Retrospective: Day Four Day Four, Part One: Up, Up And Away! Somehow, I like this plane. Perhaps the purpose of the journey itself inspires me and makes all things uncomfortable seem meaningless. Neither the prevalent smell of gasoline nor the uncomfortable, collapsible seats made of woven, synthetic fabric hung over metal rods is a bother. I have ridden for hours in a tropical jeep crammed with more than twenty sweaty people as we bump over dirt roads. I have slept on concrete rooftops, park benches, on the soil of dense forests and on the sand in open, raging beaches with few necessities. As the adventurer and one ready to serve the highest good in all, I feel ready for anything… Day Four, Part Two: Eureka, Angels, Natamba As we land, Mark, already on the ground, opens our cabin door to help us deplane as…

Ask Parvati 30: Creating Your Reality

Dear friends, Thank you for this week’s emails, Facebook posts and tweets regarding my one-year anniversary of being at the North Pole. I really appreciate your support. To honour the work that was done on that trip, I am currently working on my first music video, using footage from the North Pole, and a short documentary of the trip to share with you all. So please stay tuned for the completion and release of those exciting projects. This week I also received quite a few Ask Parvati questions. Thank you for those as well! As usual, the one I here answer was chosen lottery style. Enjoy! The Ask Parvati for this week will begin after today’s recollection of my North Pole journey. A year ago today, it was my second day in Resolute. Day Three, Part One I wake up to my second morning in Resolute Bay. It is the day before I leave for the North Pole. I feel inwardly warmed by the memory of meeting the Inuit healers Lisa and Louisa last night. What grace to have such palpable, human confirmation that a subtle thread of healing interconnects us all. How else could these women have known before meeting me that I was coming to the North Pole to do healing work for the Earth?…

North Pole Retrospective – Part 3

Dear Friends, My reunion with Satish yesterday was fun. Sunanda and Rishi were also there and we laughed about meeting polar bears and the craziness of our adventure. It was great to see Satish again who continues his philanthropic work globally. Today I think of how a year ago, I had arrived on this day for the first time in Resolute Bay, a remote Inuit town of about 200 people on the Arctic Ocean in Nunavut. There I had the most amazing experiences. Please join me as I remember them here. Enjoy the gift of this day. Parvati   Day Two, Part One – Resolute I open my eyes and notice that the bed sheets don’t feel like my own. I am not at home. I am in Resolute Bay, Nunavut. I am on my way to the North Pole to sing and offer healing to help raise awareness of the melting polar ice caps. I start to peel myself from the warmth of the bed, when I am overwhelmed with tears. What is this heaviness? Sitting myself up on the edge of the mattress, I allow myself to be present with the feelings. I feel grief, an overwhelming feeling of grief. My chest is heavy and my breathing tight. I feel puzzled. These emotions feel so deep, so burdened. Where are…
