I have been hearing this idea for as long as I can remember. Choose to be happy!

Crying as a child in my room, experiencing being a teenager, dealing with deep depression and suicidal tendencies as a young woman.

The past week or so I have woken up every morning around 5...

When we shame ourselves we give away all of our power.

I have a great affinity for crystals.

The first time I went to a Reiki Master, she placed some on my body and in each hand. At the end of our session she told me the beautiful piece of clear quartz I was holding wanted to stay with me, and that I should keep it. It was...

Sometimes students they tell me how excited they are about beginning affirmations and  mantra, but they’re not sure what exactly they should be telling themselves or where to begin.

One of my favorite, and most important, practices is that of having "at home yoga retreats".

When we practice grounding and presence we calm our minds and stimula...
