Embrace Your Femininity

Why Do I Want to Protect the Divine Feminine? 

 

I have been reading and learning more and more about the subject of the Divine Feminine. Meditating…. I have even enrolled myself into a one year program with Sianna Sherman and Ashley Turner, Urban Priestess. Sienna and Ashley are my inspiration and teachers. They are self-made beautiful amazing women and they are successful yoginis. I just felt a strong call in. It was not even a choice. I had to be there. I had to find the money as if it were my mission.

On one of our first online meditations after 5 minutes I bursted into the tears and I was sobbing and weeping. And I do not cry easily. I saw all the scenes from my childhood when my father was very aggressive to us, abusive and it felt like hell! I saw myself as a little girl hiding so I would not get hurt. My mom was crying… My dad was screaming and I remember all the offensive words he was saying to my mom and to us, his daughters. I want to forgive him. I want to let it go. I just do not know how. I know he loves me but i can not talk to him without forcing myself into it.

I still feel that I didn’t forgive him… But I want to and I am working on it.

My father has never told me that I was beautiful and that he loved me until I made him say it last year in an argument. 

He told me that all the boys who liked me were partially gay because I was too skinny to be attractive and I had a flat chest.

He used to say so many offensive things… Without even knowing it. Both of my sisters are broken, work for little money, got married and divorced with very low life men who were addicted to alcohol, gambling, and were very abusive.

How did I become a beautiful woman? It is a mystery. I almost did not have a chance. It is a long story and I might tell it one day.

But for now I do not care what my father says… I know I am beautiful… And I want to help other women to open themselves to their beauty. I learned how to love myself and I am here to share actual steps on how to love yourself and carry your body as a sacred temple. I want to protect women.

Below is a little bit about the Divine Feminine I am trying to reclaim and honor. Maybe you will feel like you also need to heal your wounds. And if you feel it please come!

If you feel like you want to learn a little more about yourself, dig a little deeper into who you truly are as a woman, without a social status, money, degree..

Who are you when you are “naked”?  Who are you when there are no attachments? Without a country, your friends, your family, kids, husband …. WHO ARE YOU? 

If you can not make it but you want to make another time, come and talk to me.

I am here at your service with my open heart.

“At every moment, a woman makes a choice between the state of the queen and the state of the slave girl. In our natural state, we are glorious beings”.

Marianne Williamson

What is your choice?

Maybe it is time to come back to your natural state and begin to shine out. Reclaim your inner goddess. It is there, just waiting for you. Even when you do not feel it. The Divine feminine was suppressed for centuries and centuries. Our mothers did not know how to reclaim their inner goddess and their mothers, and the mothers before them. Some major religions claimed the power of the divine feminine witchcraft and claimed it demonic.

 

It is time to heal our woundedness and brokenness and instead embrace our wholeness. It is time to transform our woundedness into wholeness.

“We live in a time where the planet is crying for a Divine Feminine, and she is coming. I feel her rising from deep within the earth. I feel her pulsing in my own blood and flesh body. I see her waking up in the eyes of my sisters who are remembering their power and their magic. Everyday I continue to do my practices, gobble my own shadow, and grow more clear and strong in this body-mind vessel. As I step more and more into my wild nature, I grow more fluid and strong, more fierce and open, more loving and more terrifying. The goddess has many faces. She doesn’t need your validation or understanding. She is in nature itself and will not explain herself to you. Worship her! She might bless you or she might destroy. Either way you are lucky, because you will be transformed.

I practice and hold space for the deep planetary shifts that are coming and in many ways are already here. I practice and pray for all my sisters around the globe who have been stripped of their power, abused and degraded. I practice and hold compassionate space for them. “ Sonya Blade

Authenticity

FullSizeRender-5

Only when we tap into our authenticity we can blossom. Only when we get rid  of our fears and open our minds into direction of our dreams we can start unfolding our true potentials and have a vibrant and fulfilling life full of passion and love. Only then we are getting connected to the Greater Source and we can find talents in ourselves that we didn’t know existed.

We CAN  choose jobs we love!

We CAN  choose to be creative!

We CAN go into direction of our dreams!

We CAN  travel all around the world!

We CAN blossom to our highest potentials!

A rose is not afraid to bloom to it’s highest potential! Why are we afraid? A rose opens up for us completely and we are admiring it! Hold the image of this beautiful rose in your heart and remember that God has created you the way so you can bloom to your highest potentials and discover your uniqueness and your talents!

Open yourself up to your unlimited possibilities! 

You CAN achieve more then you think!

PRACTICE

Take a deep breath in and slowly exhale and say: I CAN, I AM…

sit in a complete silence for 2-3 minutes and notice different vibrations in you. These are the sprouts of your creativiness and connection to the unlimited supply. 

During this  express meditation repeat 10 times silently: I CAN, I AM CREATIVE

Welcome a soft smile on your face and open your eyes. 

I am wishing Happiness to YOU !!!!

The Master Cleanser Or The Lemonade Diet

IMG_5110

“People build strong, healthy bodies from correct foods or they build diseased from incorrect foods” says Stanley Burroughs , the author of the The Master Cleanser book.

As a yogi I completely understand the value of cleansing your body on the physical level so I have decided to try and I loved it! My goal is to keep youth and elasticity for many more years to come!  I am excited to share it with you! As a yogi I understand that self-love starts with taking care of your own body and avoiding wrong foods, avoiding toxins and alcohol and welcoming more health on all the levels I possibly CAN! Please join me and ask me any question on the way to an AMAZING AND HEALTHY LIFE!

What you need to buy

If you are going to do it for 3 days

(It is a good start and if you like it and it makes you feel better you can do it up to 10 or even 40 days in a row).

  1. 9 – 10 fresh lemons ( better organic)
  2. Organic Maple Syrup Grade B (Harmon’s sell them and Trader Joe’s)
  3. Cayenne Pepper pills ( Cool , 40 000 heat unit)
  4. Purified or spring water
  5. Laxative tea

Purpose

To dissolve and eliminate toxins and congestions that have formed in any part of the body.

To cleanse the kidneys and the digestive system.

To purify the cells throughout the entire body .

To eliminate all unusable waste and hardened material in the joints and muscles.

To build a healthy blood stream.

To keep youth and elasticity regardless of our years. 

When to use it

When sickness has developed – for all chronic and acute conditions.

When the digestive system needs a rest and a cleansing.

When overweight has become a problem.

When better assimilation and building of body tissue is needed.

How to make it

2 tbsp lemon for 10 Oz cup or lime juice ( appr. ½ lemon)

2 tbsp genuine organic maple syrup Grade B

1 pill cool cayenne pepper or cayenne pepper powder (a pinch)

Water, cold, warm or hot ( spring or purified)

Mix juice, syrop, water together with a pinch of cayenne or take a pill 🙂

You may make a pitcher for the whole day and drink 6 or more cups a day!! 

Three to four times a year will do wonders for keeping the body in a normal healthy conditions.

Lemons and limes are the richest source of minerals and vitamins of any food known to a man!!!

A lemonade diet is a superior in every way to any other system because it dissolves and eliminates all type of fatty tissue. Fat melts away at the rate of 2 pounds a day for most persons – and without any harmful side effects.

All mucus diseases such as cold, flu, asthma, hay fever, sinus and bronchial troubles are rapidly dissolved and eliminated from the body.

It helps with allergies too because allergies exist as a result of an accumulation of the toxins and they vanish as we cleanse the body.

All skin disorders also disappear as the rest of the body is cleansed. Boils, abscesses and pimples all come under this category. These conditions are, again, Nature’s effort to eliminate poisons quickly from the body.

NO OTHER FOOD SHOULD BE TAKEN DURING THE FULL PERIOD OF THE DIET

Note

The following diet is given solely as a suggestion; anyone who follows it does it so voluntarily. Since, each person, naturally, reacts differently, each individual must use his own judgment as to use it. 

How to exit the Lemonade Diet

Coming off the lemonade diet properly is highly important – please follow the directions carefully.

First and second day after diet:

Several 8 oz. glasses of fresh orange juice desired during that day.

The orange juice prepares the digestive system to properly digest and assimilate regular food. Drink it slowly. Add water if needed.

On the second day you may have vegetable soup prepared from scratch or raw fruit and vegetable.

The third day:

Fresh orange juice (using real oranges) , later during the day soup. In the evening vegetables and fruits. NO meat, fish, milk, bread, pastries, tea or coffee!!!!!!

The forth day:

Normal eating may be resumed carefully and mindfully.

PS: I am personally only on the day 2 and I take 4 pills of cayenne pepper during the day and I drink lots of water in between drinking the lemonade. So be careful and listen to your body. And I also drink laxative tea in the morning and in the evening.

I would strongly recommend to buy a book written by Stanley Burroughs   if you are going to do this diet more the 3 days trial!!!!!!

I am wishing you Happiness and Health and Love!

Namaste!

What The Gayatri Mantra Does For You

6QOmKCj_0ZM

As a yoga teacher I like to create a theme for my class once or twice a week. Something that resonates with my heart, something authentic and unique to my students souls… Sometimes a theme for a class comes spontaneously, like an answer from the Universe at that very moment and I just simply have to share it with my beloved students.

To me, my students are the best students in the whole world and I truly love each and every one of them!

This week is about Gayatri Mantra performed by Deva Premal and it’s powerful words and music. Why do I like her performance so much? Most likely because she is simply amazingly great and and her voice is magic, like a soft silky golden sand falling upon you.. Second of all I have met her and Mitten personally once. Years ago I was in charge of organizing their concerts in Saint-Petersburg, Russia and I was lucky enough to be around them… I sensed  the deepest love, appreciation and genuine friendship between them. At that time I was single and I was admired, surprised and questioned: how was that even possible..? They have been married for a while!!!!For more then 10 years!!!! I was at awe of everything about them: their relationship, their attitude towards life, their music, their unbelievable impact on people who got so lucky to get to know them…

Here is the mantra using english alphabet :

Aum Bhur Bhuvah Swah Tat Savitar Varenyam

Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi Dhiyo Yo Nah Prachodayat

The Gayatri Mantra is probably one of the most oldest Sanskrit  mantras known to humanity. It is the prayer to the Sun, the giver of life on Planet Earth. This mantra is about wishing happiness to all sentient beings. There are many translations I found of this mantra but my favorite is written by Swami Bhagavan Sri Satya Sai Baba.

Here is the Meaning of the Gayatri Mantra:

We contemplate the glory of Light illuminating the three worlds: gross, subtle, and causal. We are that vivifying power, love, radiant illumination, and divine grace of universal intelligence. We pray for the divine light to illumine our minds.

It is believed that by chanting the Gayatri Mantra your life will be full of happiness and light.

Who is Gayatri?

Gayatri is the Mother of the Vedas ( Divine Ancient Knowledge).  Gayatri has 3 names:   Gayatri, Savithri and Saraswathi. There are 3 present in one.

Gayatri represents the senses, it is the master of the senses.

Savithri is the master of Prana ( Life Force). Savithri signifies the truth.

Saraswathi is the master of speech.

These 3 represent purity in thought, word, and deed. Gayatri pervades everywhere. It is the Trinity of the senses, the mind and speech.

What  the Gayatri does for you.

Since the Gayatri is the mother of the Vedas, (Knowledge) this prayer fosters and sharpens your ability to learn, it opens your heart towards knowledge and towards expressing your truths. Gayatri has been given to you as a third eye to reveal to you that inner vision by which you may get in contact with your own enlightened YOU. Gayatri will protect your body, make your intellect shine and improve your power of speech.

There are many other benefits of this mantra. I just wanted to focus on the ones which truly resonate with me at this beautiful Friday morning. 🙂

The Gayatri Mantra is a beautiful theme for a yoga class. I have seen how it inspires people who have never felt anything about yoga before, who were very far away from chanting or listening to any mantras… This one is very powerful and finds  the way into the human heart instantly… Melting it… Softening it… Opening it… To the Divine Light in each one of us….

My 2015 Resolutions, Dreams and Tips On How To Set Goals

IMG_1182

Yes!!!  🙂  We are still in January and it means we still have time to make a choice in which direction “our ship will sail”. As women, we need to be careful with setting up our goals because any goal-setting has a solar energy which is masculine. Which is totally okay, we just need to be aware of this and have feminine approach to setting our feminine goals and think about our desires as women. Here are some questions I ask myself when setting my goals and defining my resolutions:

  • What can I do this year to develop as a woman?
  • What can I do to feel more fulfilled and happy, and less stressed out and tired?
  • What can I give to this world that’s so unique and special only I can do?
  • What can I develop as an individual?
  • How can I become a better wife and help my husband?
  • How can I become a better yoga teacher?

Please welcome my resolutions for 2015!!!!! YAY!!! I am truly excited to manifest my dreams and desires on here and share my thoughts with you, my beloved readers and followers! 🙂

As a woman – I want to develop on all 4 levels of femininity. To wear feminine clothes, to become more caring and kind. To serve others. Big goal – Create my first workshop for women about self-love, self-acceptance, yoga and connecting with authentic and feminine self. Connecting with our inner little child. Connecting with Shakti – The Great Divine Mother  

As a wife – to serve my husband and pay special attention to his needs and desires. Always think of him and consider his opinion and decisions. Always strive to become a better partner. Always strive to become less selfish in my marriage and become a better lover. Experiment with the new food recipes at least 2 times a month. My mantra: “My marriage is fulfilling, full of support and passion.”

As an individual – to be honest with myself, be gentle with myself, pay attention to my health and spend time with myself, meditate. Travel 3 new countries this year. (New Zeeland, Fiji, Mexico) My mantra: “I am full of energy and my health is vibrant.”

As a yoga teacher – to teach from the deepest bottom of my heart. To get connected with my students. Be compassionate and loving. Be open. Teach 5-6 times a week. Create fun, flowing classes. Help students get connected with their own heart. My mantra for this year: “My income as a yoga teacher is constantly growing. Everybody loves me.”

As a blogger and writer – write something every day. Share my true feelings, hesitations and experiences. Share with my followers what inspires me. Inspire others. Read, study, learn new things. I want to become an inspirational speaker for women (this is totally new!!! So I am very excited to see what this path will be offering to me shortly! )

As an artist – paint 3 new paintings a month! Try to paint every weekend and study art. Take steps towards selling my art. Have my art in Art Galleries in Park city. My mantra: “ I am well recognized Artist and my income is growing.”

Always volunteer myself to Society! Help others and share.

As you can see before making my goals I thought about who I was and I spread my goals in between my social roles. It helps a lot and makes this process very simple. This approach was offered by Steven Covey, author of very famous bestseller: “Seven Habits of highly effective people.” First we are making a list of our roles of who we are: a citizen, a daughter, a mother, a wife, a dancer, a college, an employee, a manager, a sister, a lover, a girlfriend… and then we start thinking:

  • “What CAN we do in the roles which are the most important for us right now?”
  • “How CAN we improve our lives in those directions?”
  • “What depends on us?

I would recommend choosing 5-6 roles or even less so you can have time to really work on them. Be realistic. Very important to think about what Can we do? Instead of thinking for instance: “My sister will never change, she is very selfish and cold.” Or “ My husband needs to change this year and start making good money finally. Or stop playing computer games and help me.” This is a “reactive thinking”. To become successful in anything we do, in anything we want to become successful we need to start thinking PROACTIVE (another good advice I got from Steven Covey about 8 years ago and it completely changed my life and I understood that I am the ONLY one in charge of my own life).

What does it mean to “be proactive”? It simply means we CAN make a difference in anything we do by choosing a different approach or a different reaction to any circumstances. Steven Covey says: “Your life doesn’t just happen. Whether you know it or not, it is carefully designed by you. The choices, after all, are yours. You choose happiness. You choose sadness. You choose decisiveness. You choose ambivalence. You choose success. You choose failure. You choose courage. You choose fear. Just remember that every moment, every situation, provides a new choice. And in doing so, it gives you a perfect opportunity to do things differently to produce more positive results. Being proactive is about taking responsibility for your life. You can’t keep blaming everything on your parents or grandparents. Proactive people recognize that they are “response-able.” They don’t blame genetics, circumstances, conditions, or conditioning for their behavior. They know they choose their behavior. Reactive people, on the other hand, are often affected by their physical environment. They find external sources to blame for their behavior. If the weather is good, they feel good. If it isn’t, it affects their attitude and performance, and they blame the weather. All of these external forces act as stimuli that we respond to. Between the stimulus and the response is your greatest power–you have the freedom to choose your response. One of the most important things you choose is what you say. Your language is a good indicator of how you see yourself. A proactive person uses proactive language–I can, I will, I prefer, etc. A reactive person uses reactive language–I can’t, I have to, if only. Reactive people believe they are not responsible for what they say and do–they have no choice.” So anything we want to improve in our lives – whether it is a relationship with our sister, brother, father, daughter – let’s start thinking “what can I do?” For example: If our siblings or our in-laws are cold or not open and we are worrying about it. Let’s ask ourselves “What is it in my behavior that caused it? “

There are some ideas what we can do: The very thing we CAN do – is letting go of the fact that they do not treat us the way we want to be treated. Let’s acknowledge it for what it is, accept it and be grateful that we have them in our life. Soooo many people do not have any siblings… and some of us DO!!!! Maybe they want a little distance from us because we are too controlling, judgmental and negative. Maybe the distance was developed by us or them because we were too busy and ignored each other’s feelings in childhood. Maybe the reason is so far in our childhood that we can not even recollect it. It doesn’t matter. Past is past. Life is today. And our past doesn’t define our future. We can start creating beautiful relationships right now, the very moment, by letting go of our past. Second of all we CAN become more open and accepting. Third of all we CAN start to pay closer and special attention to the things which are important to the people we love and maybe surprise them with the tickets for their favorite football game or the show. But !!!!

Never expect anything in return, just be the GIVER!!!

The Universe will respond! Maybe not through the relationships with our siblings at first, but it will. Because We are a circle!!!! Whatever comes from us gets back to us. This is how the laws of the Universe work!!! Second example is with our husbands. If we are not satisfied with the amount of money they make or we see a lack of ambition in them.. Instead of trying to get a very well paid job ourselves, let’s look around and see how clean and cozy are our homes? Let’s think about “Does my husband always have a nice hot fresh meal when he comes home from work?” “How often do I read him successful stories about how other men have started with nothing and have achieved a fortune?” “How often do I express my admiration of him and gratitude?” “How often do I spend a quality time together with him?” And the most important question is: “ Do I believe in my own husband myself? “, “Do I believe in his unique talents?” “Do I clearly see those talents? “. When we get all the answers to those questions, we will see the tremendous work we CAN do to help him and inspire!!
