Daily YEM Reminder – August 13

When I feel unsettled, or somehow not quite in the flow, I realize that in some way, I am in resistance to what is. So I go inside and practice non-resistance. Here is what I do. Give it a try if you like. Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, if you notice you feel disconnected, immediately pause. Notice that you feel unsettled, and begin your non-resistance practice. Start simply, with just looking at your surroundings, and noticing what you see. Just watch, without adding stories to things. For example, you see a tree out the window. Just watch it. Notice the tree, the dancing leaves, the light and the colour. Should you hear a car drive by, just notice it. You hear it drive towards you then past you. So it is. Then feel your body within your surroundings. If you are sitting, feel your body on the chair. If you are lying down, feel the weight of your body towards the ground. Just notice how you feel. Notice the softness or hardness of the surface supporting you. Then draw your attention to your breath. What does it feel like? Breathe in. Breathe out. Move your awareness inward and just notice. Feel the quality of breathing. Is it heavy? Is it light? Is it easy? Is it restricted? In this, everything begins to settle and you feel not limited to your thoughts, to the sense of being separate in a body. You begin to feel divisiveness dissolve, replaced by energy, flow and abundance. You feel connected and interconnected. You feel flow. Just stay with that, watching. When you start to think about what you will have for dinner, or if you will get that call, notice you are going into thinking. Simply and gently bring your attention back to the feeling of being rooted and expansive, here and now. #parvati #positivepossibilitieslady #yem #yoga #yogini #yogaasenergymedicine #yogateacher #yogaquote #energywork #breathwork #selfhealing #grace #lifeforce #nature #oneness #consciousness #health #namaste #meditation #meditate

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…

Always Within Love’s Embrace

I have had the great blessing of spending this past week in Detroit with my guru from South India, Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, also lovingly known as Amma or Mother. Being in the presence of a fully realized master is indescribable. One who has gone beyond the limitations of the mind cannot be understood with the intellect. But I can share some of the insights from my time with Amma, as I resume my production schedule back in Toronto – new website to launch, music videos to complete, new songs and show to produce…. As I stumble and soar, grow and evolve, release and expand each day throughout my life, I am reminded that I view life through the lens of my perceptions, which are limited and imperfect. I experience life this way because I am still attached to the temporal sense of self that is separate from the whole. Some call this conditional sense of identity “me”, while others call it the ego. I have moments of oneness, of ease and unity beyond this self that feels divided from the whole. In those moments, all simply is. I feel no grasping or pushing, but rooted, vital and expansive within a loving whole. There is no resistance, but an effulgence of possibility and love. Then something…
