Creativity • Flow

Creativity is an innate muscle. Last night our electronic band The Price of Dill played a set for the Resident Open Mic at the Laundry Cafe. We’ve known each other’s style from the many years, practicing both acoustically and electronically.

I sat within gratitude after our set and contemplated why I love to play music and what are some elements of that system called band that work? What I found is applicable to all humanity. It is a riff off of a conversation I had with a friend earlier in the day having to do with how to honor each other.

Music creation is art, it is light and it is is Guru (teacher who brings light to darkness).

From a flow and structure balance, a feeling and vibrational environment opens within and out to. It is expansive to be within such an fine state if etheric flight.

Trust, courage and respect grows when you feel the safety and support within a collaboration. To surrender to the whole is a joyful process. Each person brings their element which creates the greater good. Each soul chooses their own resonance to share which magnifies self, brightens others and the space as well.

Just like those qualities or aspect it takes to create a song, so does each person bring forth their unique light of the whole. As cooperation builds in a way that is open to the flow, to suggestion, to adaptability, to humility, to peace, to honoring, to balance, to harmony, to creative evolution, to solutions-so thereby a better world becomes reality.

When humanity moves into this place of allness alignment the self is not lost. It is instead reveered and free to shine. The heart can open.

I am grateful to my band because we are three equal parts. We each speak our minds directly if we don’t like a direction. Not everything done creates a song. We root for each other. Happiness is when one of us lands a complicated melody or we help each other learn to be better. It is about the process and about collective freedom. Through creation of music there is a prerequisite called listening, truth and also ability to flow with changes, be in tempo, to have awareness of pace with each other. We have different levels of structure, different cultural backgrounds, age, but we don’t judge, we value peace, we value each other. There is fulfillment in the process.

To have a band is to learn the alchemy of a successful life. May you be blessed with whatever meaning or message you received by reading this. My finite mind has received this and I offer the message as a gift to you! May you be blessed and may you bless!

11:11 Grace Offered From Myself Was

My dear friend called to wish me happy birthday. We had an an inspiring conversation regarding unity, self-value and living from the heart. That and animal rescue. We have some matching gifts as well as correlating moral code and lessons we have lived. Each aspect of hardship experiences finely honed our realities, our sensitivities as well as to strengthened our spirits.

Our friendship occurred because she had a toothache at a writers’ conference we both attended and I am a healer is interestingly part of the message. She was able to complete the convention as a result and we have been friends ever since.

The history we share is also a deep reflection. I am weirdly currently reading a book I purchased at that conference on embracing change and stepping into true soul self. This follows in the heals of meeting a new friend who inspired me to blog again and to step into my power.

I will post this message for whoever needs to hear it can. I do not have a child. This was a letter I wrote to a client when she was kind enough to send a card to my boss for Father’s Day. I suggested to write her back and offered to draft the letter of which he was overjoyed to send as they were his sentiments delivered in an impactful way. What is the grace is this letter was written in 2014. I did not open the letter but it magically appeared on my desktop somehow. I did not even remember writing it until I reread it and know it is in my voice and I passion for Buckminster Fuller is definitely from me.

We have a dome my family built which is when I learned of Buckminster Fuller! If you do not know about him read up on him. A fascinating innovative force of social and spiritual inspiration!

This all ties into a message that I am to write. I daily ask for guidance and clarity on my purpose and these are the magical ways it occurs.

I have left out names because I do not want to take away anyone’s privacy. This is following a loss due to parental conflict and resulting alienation of the child.

Dear …..

I guess the best gift you can give yourself is to accept these facts however unpleasant and find ways to feed your soul, to have fun and be creative. Each of us have special gifts to bring forth and though you were not able to share these things with own your child, Carol tells me you were able to enrich a young girl’s life who is not related to you.

Here is a quote for you:

“Never forget that you are one of a kind. Never forget that if there weren’t any need for you in all you your uniqueness to be on this earth, you wouldn’t be here in the first place. And never forget, no matter how overwhelming life’s challenges and problems seem to be, that one person can make a difference in the world. In fact, it is always because of one person that all of the changes that matter in the world come about. So be that one person.”

Buckminster Fuller; Architect Engineer, and Inventor

Buckminster Fuller used to say “call me trim tab”. A trim tab is a small tab at the bottom of a giant ship that enables it to be able to turn. A small part with a big impact. If the trim tab is not there the ship cannot turn.

The timing and the grace infused into this letter caused me to cry in a spiritual way. My mind is blown yet again. I hope that this inspires someone. I have realized my ability to use words to inspire upon reading a letter I myself drafted.

I am a healer and it is so a part of me that sometimes I don’t see it. I didn’t know until 10 years ago that feeling and knowing were not something everyone experienced. What I deeply know is that we are all a piece of the puzzle and we need to uplift, and appreciate each other and our uniqueness!

Have a blessed day!

Please comment if this moved you! Not for recognition of myself but rather for the curiosity of the message coming through so magically!

Birthday Thoughts

Last year at this time I was in India in Vrindavan. I was living with a friend in a temple and I could do fire on the roof daily. The pundit would practice Sargam every morning, there were bells on either side and once and awhile I’d chant by borrowing the temple harmonium. Something we both knew was Hanuman Chalisa so it was a go to.

There was also young man, a monk who lived there. He was very curious about me. He was headed on a long journey and wanted me to bless him. I told him he was already blessed. I did some simple clearing of his energy and gave him a blessing because I know how, and also because he asked. It was sweet that he saw my devotion. I also feel he missed his own mother.

That time was so serene! The light was magic and my heart wide open. Everyday I bought my groceries from Radha. Sometimes the monkeys would grab a squash before I could get put it away well. The mama and babies would have a feast on the fence. Sadhana was optimal there. I did many exit prayers for my friend Matura Seva who passed and fed many poor people through food for life. I met the owner and we had lovely times!

I will be back to India in February and am looking forward to the peace that I feel. This year is Arunachala. I am practicing my Hindi as well as Sanskrit even though I will be in the South.

I am grateful for last year and the amazing opportunities that presented themselves. I was able to see Amma so many times because I was at the Ashram in India. I met so many amazing people and had many opportunities to sing and be of service. I met Shivananda and his whole Seva team. My guru came through recently. This blog is the result of support I am receiving from a friend of my guru’s.

I will post my daily mantra on Instagram because my uploading feature for video is not working at the moment.

Rescripting the Lila, the Birthday Challenge

An old blog written in 2015 popped up on my screen yesterday. I realized its impact by rereading as an observer so many years later.

I emote healing through my words, music, through Pranashakthi and when teaching healing. My heart is now inspired to break out of my comfort zone and share more of what is within me. So much has been learned and reaches fewer than my heart insists upon. When I receive support I am shown the value of sharing.

I was preparing for a lecture with Vinayak Sathe on consciousness and inspiration planned for Sunday, November 17th at 4 pm at Yoga Society San Francisco. The topic and catalyst for this blog arose out of the brainstorming conversation. I decided to write daily for upliftment to include photos and mantra. Life is precious I will share myself! It is time! My birthday starts tomorrow so a gift of myself through words, images and mantra is what I offer.

Avatars of The Earth

The end of this month September 26-28 I will be attending Avatars of The Earth in Mount Shasta. I have been both invited and called to present. I will be guiding a group healing called Pranashakthi Consciousness Seed Healing which will also heals the consciousness of those in attendance and consciousness of the collective. Each person present assists in the healing. The process is facilitated through Pranashakthi energy and mantra. Gaia responds back powerfully with loving transformative energy. I am grateful to my guru Sri Yogacharya Arun Kumar who has brought me Pranashakthi in all its forms. This healing is by far the most miraculous. I hope to see you there!

Sound, Energy and Relation to Unified Vibration- Cleanup on Aisle Nine

I have been increasingly sensitive to sound and how it can be peaceful or dissonant. What sparked this thought I was preparing to apply for some things for myself and others I am collaborating with. I decided to go have a coffee down the street to contemplate and start the process. When I arrived it was quiet and I was settling into my soul and able to begin to receive guidance.

Suddenly a new employee started their shift. Pop music started blasting and every time a coffee was made the espresso grinder was run and the release lever was banged aggressively. I see energy but more importantly I feel it. It could be that this bright person wants to follow her dreams bur has to work at a coffee shop but really she is an entrepreneur or something. It isn’t for me to worry about. The point is how do we keep the energetic environment in check?

This experience reminded me of an understanding I have from my intuitive sensitivities. I share not because I feel I am all knowing but because not everyone processes information as I do. Growing up I thought everyone saw as I did. Later I was surprised to realize my insights were unique.

As someone who processes mostly through intuition primarily knowing and feeling I have internal feedback when I witness and interact with myself, social interactions and surroundings.

I have always thought about this topic. Many many years ago Caroline Myss discussed “thoughts as things” which I totally agree with and had contemplated this often.

In 2012 my guru Sri Yogacharya Arun Kumarji discussed energy and how it can have sort of a memory. The memory wording is how I describe what he discussed which is that if a fight occurs in a room and both people leave, a new person, unaware of this transgression can walk into that pocket of energy and become angry themself. This talk greatly moved me because it explained big portions of my life.

What I realized was that based on my sensitivities I had already stopped watching tv because the content of media was not something I wanted in my field. I realized that many problems I experienced in understanding my place in the world when I was younger was because I felt others experiences as my own. I was unable to differentiate between my feelings or what was coming from around me. I would often become confused or reactive without having a source of it. I didn’t have deep faith or understanding yet.

I am also able to know so if someone is saying one thing to me and generating another type of energy that was not aligned with what they were saying. For example if someone was nice to me but secretly had another type of judgment I would always know. The reverse was also true if someone was acting disinterested but were fascinated by me I would also know.

The results of these findings was that I decided to go to love. I stopped caring long ago about judgments but no longer try to rally for people’s positive viewpoints of me and just focused on being me. A person is like art. Not everyone likes the same masterpiece.

I also did my best to stay away from bars, complaining, judgments, I do not eat meat because I don’t agree with it but also energetically it is taking on the suffering of the animal who was traumatized.

So looking deeper I began to see the gestalt of it. While looking at the whole that study of Masaru Emoto the Japanese author who demonstrated that human consciousness has an effect on the molecular structure of water with his photos of frozen water molecules that were infused with words I began to see more connections. If you are not familiar with the study, the crystals of frozen water with positive words were beautiful and negative words created deformities in the crystals.

This study inspired me. I was already making little porcelain birds for friends called Bluebirds of Happiness. I would make them for people I knew who were struggling with a divorce or any type of need for uplifting vibrations. I began to infuse my birds with Pranashakthi healing to the wet molecules of clay so that the positive energy would be fired into the little friend. I began offering these birds publicly on Etsy.

So what is the bigger picture here? I am still bringing together what this means but how we express ourselves inwardly and outwardly creates our energetic environment. Going back to the original example of the person that started their shift. This is not judgment but fascination. We create our lives by our thoughts which is why affirmations are useful. What this points to is conscious responsibility of our energy.

Amma often does the Peace Flower Meditaion and chants Lokah Samastah Sukino Bhavantu meaning may all beings everywhere be happy and free. Why does she do this? This is very deep because it is helping to neutralize misappropriated energy and generating high vibrations.

I am a Bhakta meaning I find my way to moksha through my devotion and music. I also sing Hindustani classical music. Singing and sound is another way to clear the energetic field. Mantras are a way to clean up thought disturbances stray thoughts. When we focus on the good of the other or the good of the whole we add to the positivity of the field.

Continual fear based or negativethought forms create a samskara that gets stronger and stronger. This can cause depression and even illness. This same action turned positive does the opposite:

I hope this list below will inspire. Please let me know how this resonates for you.

What are some key ways to uplift the whole?

  • Be kind to yourself and drop self judgments. Love your authentic self.
  • Sing mantra or something joyful
  • Have gratitude for others and for all aspects of life even if the situation you face is not what you want exactly
  • Stop cluttering the mind with politics and news stories about calamities of the world
  • Drop gossip and or judgment and refuse to enable that in others
  • Be joyful
  • See the good in others and help them see it in themself in a humble, honoring way
  • Drop any need to be right
  • Don’t let vulnerabilities dictate your response. If you have had trauma don’t feed into that timeline anymore.
  • Do not match energy if someone is attacking or angry neutralize the field by holding your own vibration and having clear compassion
  • Do not pity anyone
  • Love for loves sake
  • Be of service however you can even if that is just by smiling at everyone you see today
  • Observe and correct responses. So not allow yourself to get triggered by anyone’s actions. Become yogic and unmovable from the core of self.
    Take salt baths to clear cumulative energy buildup from within and without
  • Chant mantra daily
  • Stop eating meat

Consciousness of the Collective

I have been thinking about the nature of thoughts as living things and the vibratory nature of silence and harmony versus disharmony or unrest for many years. This concept is not new. Since I’m just back from India, I was out of my own San Francisco space for awhile and I see more clearly on this. As I observed and sat with this, lI was struck by the concept that each person is responsible for their own environmental field as it is. I have had this thought often especially as it relates to mantra, and meditation. Depending on the nature of thought, and clarity of mind can create vitality or the opposite.

Working in a law firm I witness people facing off with expensive suits which are often contentious and It seems like I ended up working in here to see the bigger picture of the nature of what it is to be well from a deep level or learning what not to do. Also I learned how to modulate my energy based on my own vibration not on externals. I still generate thought forms and sometimes the disruption of energy within my field while at work can require a new level of detachment and a salt bath.

So there is the space that we all live within, a vibratory energetic environment that has memory as in, if a temple has been chanted within for hundreds of years and people enter it is easy to feel that. This is the same with your brain, your home, your job. If your mind gets into negative thinking, blame or self doubt it pulls you down but it also pollutes the space. If a couple fights in their home daily it creates disharmony that becomes dense and radiates to the neighbors. Maybe on the other hand you laugh, chant mantra, sing and burn incense. It is up to you what is added.

Besides words themselves loving energy to self and grounding energies is a way to assure a positive inner environment that reflects in the outer.

What is important is that we can sweeten peoples lives or our own by the thoughts we project. We are also subject to the energies around us. Neutrality is important as to not feed into the collective drama with judgment. If someone has rage in a room that even if you don’t know that person it will effect you to walk into that space where the anger occurred.

So be kind in the thoughts you have about yourself and others. Stay neutral if someone gets heated. Do your best to control the energies so that wherever we go harmony can exist and amplify! This is a simple truth that through awareness can greatly impact the whole.
