Where Is My Voice? / Kundalini Day 5

Image
This day has been one of strong introspection. I did something today that will move me up to another level in due time. I have committed myself to releasing my original music and I have also decided to record it myself in the initial stages. We live in a time that allows musicians, speakers, bloggers, and any other artists to record right from the comfort of their own home and create a product that can almost go right on to the radio if done properly. So I took a trip to my favorite music store and had a conversation with a professional technician that told me exactly what I need to do to achieve my goal of getting these tunes recorded and on their way out across the world. This is a big thing for me. I attempted to do this in the past a few times, however, paralysis of analysis got the best of me. Will it be up to the standards of what is good? Will I be able to send it out to people who matter? Can I release some of my most personal feelings without feeling a little bit cautious? …

Close Your Eyes And Dance / Kundalini Day 4

The magic in today came from my yoga practice without a doubt. Each day has been different and that is for certain and I am sure of this. The thing is, somehow today had a specific meaning and I will explain. When we begin anything, I believe that remaining open is always the key no matter what it is. I actually have heard over and over again from the most highly vibrational people and the most celebrated luminaries, that is always best to remain in the novice mindset. these means that you should always have the brain of the student even when you have tons of knowledge. This leaves the door open for newness at all times. So if you have been following this blog, you know that this particular style of yoga has no daily continuity out side of the beginning and ending mantras that are spoken or sung.

   Firstly, I was greeted in a very soothing way today. A woman that I did not know at all just looked at me and said, "Well look at you!!!". I had on a double breasted suit jacke…

Sorcha Wesson / Kundalini Day 3

This day was yet another powerful one. I went for a short browse on the first floor of one of my favorite stores on this colorful earth, ABC Home in NYC near Union Square. The store just feels like home to me in so many ways. The creativity and the visuals and even the aroma in the store just mesmerizes me. There are 5 floors I believe and I never make it to all of them in one visit. Actually, I purposely do not even attempt to do that either. Today was especially magical because I was greeted by a very happy and engaging woman. She welcomed me into the store so well that I had to stop and ask her if everyone get such an exceptional greeting? She answered yes with no hesitation.

  I walked around on the first floor only for about 15 minutes before heading off to yoga. However, I could not leave without asking this awesome woman what she did when she was not in this store. She told me that she was a singer and that she is just starting out. Although she seemed so happy to tell me tha…

2 Amazing Books / Kundalini Day 2

Now I love to read and that is just something that has been one of my traits for years now. I come from a trio of intelligent parents that were always book smart during my entire childhood and beyond. These two books that you see above are truly game changers. Now when I say that these books can cause you to have a different perspective on your every day life, I mean it. Let me be very clear here, a book is just a collection words that you read and then go on with your life. My point in saying this is that everyone will take different things from these books and that is a wonderful thing. I recommend them because I believe that they speak to the majority of people that have to deal with every day struggles or blocks or even just life in general.

The Buddha Walks into a Bar...: A Guide to Life for a New Generation. This book is for the spiritual but not religious people. There is some very real and straight ahead talk about life from many different angles and it really gets to the h…

Kundalini Rising

Good day!!!! Well this year is kicking off quite wonderfully because I am choosing that for myself. I mentioned that I normally do a 30 day Bikram Challenge for myself at the beginning of the year. Well, the universe has decided differently for me. I am currently in the space of kundalini for 30 days. As they say, its only impermanence that we need to come to terms with in our lives.I studied kundalini a bit online and I found that it is rooted more in breathing and strengthening the mind and getting the third eye stronger. This allows us to deal with the challenges that we face in a smoother fashion. I have known about this practice for years actually, I just never got into it. I always require some sort of challenge in my life at any given time. This is conducive to my star sign I understand.

   Yesterday was my first class and it was very different. For starters, there is no intense heat as there was in Bikram. Also, the energy in the room was more of a softly lit cozy coffee sh…

Love..............really?

I  was reading my daily dose of an amazing blog called "The Daily Love" and I stumbled upon this quote:


"People use the word 'love' a lot of different ways. Take me, for instance. I am often heard saying that I love my mom and dad. I am also often heard saying that I love pizza. What am I saying when I say I love my mom and dad? I'm saying that I care about them. I'm saying that I love spending time with them and that I talk to them every chance I get. I'm saying that if they needed me, I would do every humanly possible to help them. I'm saying that I always want what's best for them. What am I saying when I say I love pizza? Am I saying that I care deeply about pizza? Am I saying that I have a relationship with pizza? Am I saying that if pizza had a problem, I would be there for the pizza? (What? Not enough pepperoni? I'll be right there!) Of course not. When I say I love pizza, I'm just saying that I enjoy eating pizza until I don…
