Recommendations for Meditation Supports after 40 years of Practice

We all want to go DEEP in meditation, and I have found that creating your meditation space properly to facilitate you going into that innermost place, is a real grounded approach to doing just that. There just comes a time when you need your meditation space to really support your practice. It is something for me that has been evolving over the last 40 years. At first - it was just about sitting and meditating regularly but then it came to be about creating a space [...]

The Power of Sound Healing with Intention

The glory of working with sound as healing is that it is always available to you. You can literally start making a sound whenever you wish - whether outwardly, so all can hear, or inwardly - using the power of vibration and intention. Sound healing does not need to be audible. In my experience, sound healing or vibrational healing - is most powerful when constructed within your being and not audible. Vibration, whether through audible sound or intention, is most effective when wanting to heal the [...]

The Power of Sanskrit Mantra

I am always humbled by the power of Sanskrit Mantras in difficult situations. They have the power to turn any situation into a blessed one. After a challenging conversation with an ex this morning, my heart was hurt, my head was reeling and I felt at sea as to what to do. After decades of practice, I have learned to turn to my practice of Mantra repetition when in distress, so thankfully my mind turned to their rescue. Quickly, I jumped into my Meditation Box and [...]

The Universal Language of Sanskrit Mantra

I was was walking through the Olive groves today and I stopped to hear a bird sing. Its melody was so delightful, so melodious, I came immediately to such a still place inside myself. There were no other sounds for me – just this little bird’s song. I realized at that moment, that a beautiful creature like this tiny bird sings his call and everyone understands it. There is no translation needed, no dictionary to look up nor neighbour to ask what is he singing about….. [...]

Know that you are loved beyond measure

Sometimes, when I allow my life to become over busy and experience too many demands on my time and attention, I forget for a little that the Divine lives within me and that I am an expression of that. I can get caught up in the moment. Luckily, I have created a habit of practice. I am so grateful for this habit as it allows me to go deeply into the experience of my Divine’s love for me and my love for the Divine. We are [...]

Falling in love with your Self

The spiritual path is really all about falling in love with your self.  Though that sounds like a pun on words, it’s a very deep understanding to entertain. Many people feel that spirituality is something they have to reach for. Something outside of themselves. This is a mistaken way of looking at things. Connecting with the Divine, which at the core of it, is the real you – is more about discarding beliefs, false identifications and patterns than attaining something. One could say it’s about accepting [...]

What is a Guru? Who is the Guru?

So many people ask me about what a guru is. On the spiritual path, it is one of the most crucial questions one needs to have clarity of or at least some good guidance, otherwise, it sets us up for trouble and possible heartache. There is only one Guru – the great grace-bestowing power of the Divine. This aspect of the Divine has many names but is beyond all names and concepts. That’s the first thing to get straight. It is not a person. That being [...]

Why do we do seva or selfless service?

Most people get the reason why we meditate. They can understand it’s relevance to the spiritual path – going deeper into one’s own being. Also, with the practice of Mantra repetition, once they understand how these spiritual sounds affect us, they can easily see how important Mantra repetition is to our spiritual sadhana or path. But when it comes to Seva or Selfless Service –  people can get confused. Seva is the simple task of offering our time and talents to our highest ideal without any [...]

Happy Maha Shivaratri!

Today is Maha Shivaratri and the crescent moon that appears on this the 14th day after the New moon in February/ March every year is especially powerful to those who chant Mantras. The crescent moon is so identified with Shiva and so this morning I got up at 4:00 a.m. to shoot the waning moon. Any Mantra you perform on Maha Shivaratri will be multiplied by 1,000 times! Especially those that honour Shiva or Parvati/Lakshmi. Every month, Shivaratri is the 14th day after the new moon, as [...]
