Life Breathes Through Us

Namaste Beautiful Beings,

I hope you are all well as we start to slip into fall. These interesting times of life continue, and there is no better time to step into the gentle cocoon of settled awareness, taking time to slow down, to tune in and to really honour your needs. In Ayurveda we are just entering into Vata season. A time of slowing down, cocooning into the warm web of our self care practices, and the nourishment of warm food. It’s even more important at these wild times to slow down, to tune into to your truth and your needs, and to trust completely in the life that is wanting to live through you. As old structures and foundations crumble we are being invited to truly be part of the birthing of a new life. In being attuned to our authentic and full experience of truth, we can help be part of these beautiful birthing that is occurring for us all right now.


Awakening From The Dream

We are being called to awaken from the dream and to remember the truth of all that we are. In doing so, not only do we open to greater grace and understanding in ourselves, but we also help to support the transformation and the healing of the collective consciousness.

Part of this awakening process is understanding that we are multi-dimensional beings, and that what we bring attention to both grows and flows. That energy is both limitless and timeless, and that life is not a finite, structured path that keeps us tightly bound.

I invite you to trust which doesn’t seem possible. To believe in the truth of a conscious earth the breathes through us. To notice the colours, the dreams, the brilliance of the stars speaking within you. To be curious about the possibility that when you feel the hug of your loved one, thousands of miles away, that it’s not imagination, but a real embrace. And to open to the possibility that what you sense and feel that is unexplainable is real. That time is not linear, that life is not so structured, and that magic does happen. It’s who we are .

The picture above is from a Healing Light Yoga class where we were working with the higher energies of angels, and they showed up live onscreen. The next HLY series starts November 9. More info below or here- https://themysticspath.dreamseedo.org/c/4351

Opening to The Life That Wants To Live Through You ❤
 
In this 6 week series, we will open to the practice of allowing life to breathe through us.
 
We are in the midst of great change right now our our planet. What if instead of resisting, or holding tight to the old safe spaces and beliefs of yesterday, we truly opened and allowed the life that we are here to live to move through us?
 
In this journey of acceptance and allowing, we will open to the grace of life that wants to embody us. We will open to new energy channels of our own unique gifts, and allow the flow of energy to not just move through our 3 dimensional being, but we will also open to the gifts of the multidimensional. Giving space for both what wants to arise, and also opening to the deep, underlying, and ever present support of the unified field.
 
Through the practice of breath, surrender and sacred intuition we will be embraced by the light, and open to all of the potential being birthed in each and every moment. Riding the waves together, as we expand into an embodied experience of our multidimensional selves.
 
Healing Light Yoga Therapy utilizes our consciousness (pure awareness) and the power of subtle intention to create balance on the physical, energetic, mental, emotional, karmic, and spiritual levels of life.
 
** This course offers profound growth for those already working with energy awareness and energy healing, yet it is also a beautiful starting point for beginners**

In these 6 weeks we will explore sacred practices to expand our awareness, enjoy deep surrender, and get to know and deepen our experience of energy healing. We will also have an online community forum and time in class to share experiences and ask questions.

These classes are great for all levels of yogi, offering a challenge to those more experienced, yet very accessible to the beginner.

Always infused with spirit and bliss, and lots of smiles:) Yoga poses, pranayama, and relaxation are all experienced in these classes.

The Awakening Heart

Namaste Beautiful Beings,

I hope you are all well and finding some joy and sunshine wherever you may be this summer season. The journey of this world keeps unfolding for us all, and each day offers a continued opportunity to tune into the here and now, instead of the mental activity of the monkey mind. It’s been a powerful month with the 8/8 Lions Gate Activation, and a New Moon in Leo. Lots of opportunity for courage, strength, playfulness, and opening into the heart of our being.

That is what I wanted to open to today. The energy of our pure and courageous heart. The space in our body and being, that is not only the transmitter and receiver of pure love, but the integration point of heaven and earth coming together as one. The space that naturally resonates with an energy of acceptance, of compassion and of deep trust.


Opening To Your Heart Light

Right now, more than ever, we are being invited to take time to recognize that we do not need to live in our mind, and that falling into the support of the heart is a powerful gift that is inherent in our birthright.

When things started to fall apart this spring, we heard the phrase “We are all in this together” and it brought a sense of global community and connection, and now it often feels reading the news, or when we are out in the world that the togetherness is no longer as apparent. The seams are splitting, and the camps are separating.

Well, we are still all in this together. Each one of us with different beliefs, ideas, experiences, and ideas of what the right path or way is. What if we had an opportunity in each moment, to go back to that sense of connected community, and remember that we are all one? That we each have our own story, and in that story each one of us are doing the best that we can.

This is easy, when we are moving from that space of heart centred awareness. A space where we rest in the divine truth of connection, and give ourselves space to feel and experience from a grounded and open state of being. Sounds simple doesn’t it? It’s not always, especially when the nervous system is in overdrive, and we are functioning with years of patterning from moving from the mind.

So how do we start to come into a more connected space of Heart Centred Awareness?

Here are some fun and easy tools to connect with the heart, and to effortlessly allow ourselves to find space to rest there more naturally. With daily acknowledgement and awareness it truly just becomes easy to move from the space of the heart and not the mind.

  • Breathe- It’s so easy. We do it all the time. We can’t live without breath. So what is it like to take a few conscious deep breaths? Try it. Maybe take a big beautiful inhale in, and then exhale out through your mouth a few times. See what that feels like. Fall into your body. Then maybe take a breath or two in and out through your nostrils, slowly and deeply and see how you feel. You may notice you are already more connected to your body. More present in the heart.
  • Awareness- What is it like to bring your mind to your heart centre. The Anahata Chakra. Centre of the Chest. Close your eyes. Take a breath. Feel what is there, maybe noticing what is on the surface. Or perhaps feeling the heart beat. Maybe feeling a lightness, or a heaviness, or something totally unique to you. Try it. See what you notice.
  • Touch- Place your hands on this beautiful centre. One palm over the other. Feel the grounding energy of your palms touching your skin. Maybe massage in a circular motion or just keep your hands there. Explore the breath there, at the same time that your hands are there. Notice the sensation, notice how it feels.
  • Imagination/Intuition– What would it be like to be able to give the heart what it needs? What would it be to trust in its unique voice? Imagine and open to the idea that it could share with you. Ask if it were a flower what flower would it be? How bright would it blossom? And imagine or allow that flower to take shape. Maybe over the next few days go back to it, water it. Nourish it.
  • Gratitude– As always Gratitude. It is truly the language of the heart. What are you thankful for in this moment? What would it be like to express that from your heart? Maybe even to give gratitude to your beautiful heart, to your beautiful self, to those things that light you up, and to those things that challenge you. Try this daily maybe with your palms on the heart centre, feeling the heart blossom and opening to the divine truth of your nature.

Have fun with these practices- they can be done all together, or one at a time. And know that coming into the heart isn’t about spiritual bypassing the emotions, or the fear, or the likes/dislikes. It’s important to feel and honour everything, but as we live from heart centre, we also live in a place of connection, and of compassion, even to those things we do not understand. Allow your heart to be as courageous and as gentle as the lions. So big, so open, so vibrant, and so magnificent, just in the resonance of it’s being.

Pranic Healing Training

It’s truly time for us to awaken into the potential of all that we are.

3:30- 6:30 pm PST/ 6:30-9:30 EST

  • Open To The Power Of Energy Healing
  • Experience The Truth Of Your Being
  • Comprehensive Training, Connected Community, Deep Healing, & Powerful Transformation

Every September I am blessed to begin a 7 month journey of deep personal growth, awakening and transformation with a select group of individuals that are ready to take the next step on their journey.

This course is designed to support the growth of the student in their own practice, so that through their own experience they will be able to support their clients and communities. Each month is a journey of connection with a chakra energy centre, and has a theme that both supports healing and creates balance on all layers- body, mind and spirit. We will be learning to work with clients one on one as well as to share group Healing Light Yoga (Pranic Healing Courses). It is through our own experience and practice, that we will fully embody and integrate the gifts of this training, allowing us to truly be able to serve others. 

This course is wonderful for people already practicing in the Healing Arts, and for those who are just starting out. It’s also wonderful for those who are just desiring to grow in the light of their consciousness. I made a little video with more info –

“This Class is somewhere on the level of magic for me. The true power of this course is in how it shifts you personally as a healer. In this course I’ve witnessed both myself and my classmates transform into being able to hold this amazing and powerful space where people can be held and begin to heal themselves.”

It’s Time To Fly

Namaste Beautiful Beings,

I hope you are well as we collectively ride the waves of these interesting times. Life is changing beneath our very feet, the foundations of everything we know are being shaken and reformed, and on many levels this is just the beginning. We are being reminded that it’s not time to hide, or stay safe. We are being called to remember who it is we are, and what it is we stand for. We are being asked to open to all of our experiences of our fears, our joys, our desires and our greatest truth. There truly is no place to hide from the stirring of the world, it’s in our face every day. And while this is certainly profound, it’s not always comfortable, especially with no known clear pathway to what’s next.

What if that pathway is in each moment? What if it’s in listening to the beating of your heart and the inspiration of your spirit? What if it’s in letting go of needing to know, and allowing the wave of life to guide you? What if it starts by paying attention to what you need, to who you are, and to what wants to be spoken and lived through you? What if you are just as much a part of nature as the trees, the birds, the sea, and the sky?

What would it be like right now- to open to the idea that there is something bigger happening here? Something that our beautiful and complex human brains cannot figure out, but something that is supporting us and calling us to pay attention to what truly is important to each of us on a foundational level.

This isn’t about spiritually bypassing all the pain, and suffering that many are going through. Perhaps it’s more about honouring all that is arising, and being part of the change. Doing our own work, honouring our own pain, our own truths (historical and current), and opening to a different way, not hiding from our past, but rising from it as the phoenix rises to fly in a different way. In this way, we truly can be an anchor for all the light that not just is coming in to support this growth, but of the light that we are, creating healing not just in ourselves but for the entire planet and collective consciousness at this time.

It doesn’t matter if the first steps of this new flight are baby steps. For some it will start by listening to your body, and making changes in alignment with your health’s highest needs. For others the steps will seem to be bigger, perhaps opening the door into a new career path or allowing the voice of expression to be loud and clear as the truth of spirit sings through you. We all are on our own journey, and none is better or worse, but we are being invited right now to pay attention, to stop hiding, and to both listen and trust to all that is unfolding.

Really it’s this is an amazing time to be alive. What an opportunity we have in every moment to be in a state of curiosity and the unknown. We always have known that we don’t know, and we always have had the idea that we really aren’t in control, and now we are being faced with this understanding in technicolour form. Not comfortable, not easy, especially with so much falling apart and being restructured, and yet it’s what’s happening. Together in consciousness, in peeling back the layers of all that has kept us “safe”, but held us back, we are truly part of a greater change.

Remember at this time, to take care- to nourish yourself, to connect with those you love, and to allow all and everything you are feeling (from fear, to grief, to anger, to joy, to love, to acceptance) to be felt and experienced. It’s all part of our process, and it’s all just perfect.


Recipes

Ginger Basil Limeade

This is one of my favourite summer recipes, especially when things heat up. As most of you know, I usually drink spiced warm water throughout the day, but sometimes in the summer, my body wants something cool and refreshing. This is a beautiful recipe that both keeps the digestive juices flowing, cools any excess heat, and brings a sweetness and a vitality to a hot summer afternoon. I usually don’t drink it iced, but cool.

I also like to drink room temperature filtered water with cucumber slices, and marshmallow flowers that marinate in it all day. So refreshing and silky smooth.

Ingredients-

  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup basil
  • 2 inches ginger
  • 1 whole lime
  • 2 TBS maple syrup or coconut sugar

Directions

1. Use a fine grater to make about 1 teaspoon of lime zest. Juice limes. Chop ginger into chunks. 

2. Add 1c water to a blender with ginger, lime juice, lime zest, raw sugar and a small handful of fresh basil leaves. Blend until smooth. 

3. Combine ginger-lime juice with an additional 3 cups of water in a pitcher. Garnish with fresh basil. Chill and serve.

Trust In The Unfolding

Hi Beautiful Beings,
I hope you are all well and settling into the flow of the moment. It’s been an interesting few months, a time filled with uncertainty and the unknown. This has not been comfortable for most of us, and yet has also offered us a great opportunity to step into deeper trust and to surrender to the larger flow of life. There is still so much unknown still, yet so much opportunity to be with ourselves, and all that arises. Not easy, and yet an important gift, to be present and experience our truth in each and every moment.

Spring is here inviting renewal, new birth and the beginning of a different season. In this blossoming, there is the opportunity to feel the support of nature, and to see its brilliance. There is nothing to do, but allow. There is nothing to accomplish. There truly is just being with what is. This is true whether you are blessed with a sacred pause, or whether life continues at a full pace. Some of us are inspired, others are tired and taking rest. I invite you to trust in your flow and don’t push past the truth of your being.

And most of all I invite you to trust in the unfolding.


Ganesha Mudra and Mantra

This is a powerful mantra and Mudra that supports the energy of new beginnings, and removes any perceived obstacles from our path.

 


Messenger

By Mary Oliver

 
My work is loving the world.
Here the sunflowers, there the hummingbird—
equal seekers of sweetness.
Here the quickening yeast; there the blue plums.
Here the clam deep in the speckled sand.
Are my boots old? Is my coat torn?
Am I no longer young, and still half-perfect? Let me
keep my mind on what matters,
which is my work,
which is mostly standing still and learning to be
astonished.
The phoebe, the delphinium.
The sheep in the pasture, and the pasture.
Which is mostly rejoicing, since all the ingredients are here,
which is gratitude, to be given a mind and a heart
and these body-clothes,
a mouth with which to give shouts of joy
to the moth and the wren, to the sleepy dug-up clam,
telling them all, over and over, how it is
that we live forever.

Upcoming Events

We are so blessed to be connected, not just by the web of energy that we are, but by the worldwide web. There are so many beautiful opportunities to share with each other online. Each opportunity and experience of sacred community connected together, is an opportunity to ground and nourish. The reflection of our connections and wide open hearts are magnified 1000 fold when we come together as one.

Weekly Yoga Classes Via Zoom-

Ongoing-

Wednesdays 4:30-6:00 PST/7:30-9:00 EST are a Hatha Class inspired by spirit

Flow with your breath. Connect with your spirit. Move into your being. These classes are great for all levels of yogi, offering a challenge to those more experienced, yet very accessible to the beginner. Flowing at times, we learn to be with our breath, our body, and our thoughts as we melt into the asanas. Experiencing the moment, opening the heart and the mind, and accepting the energy of being where we are, at the same time creating strength, stamina, and flexibility. Always infused with spirit and bliss, and lots of smiles:) Yoga poses, pranayama, and relaxation are all experienced in these classes.

Best of all is the beautiful community of yogis to connect, grow and share with.

Thursdays 10:30-12:00 PST/1:30-3:00 EST are a Healing Light Inspired Restorative and Energy Awakening Class.

Through my studies in Ayurveda I have learned to appreciate and love a different kind of yoga.  A yoga of union with our consciousness, of balance and of breath.   In the Ayurvedic Yoga classes we use a healing breath and direct that energy into our chakras and into the parts of our body that needs the most love.  The asanas are held a bit longer than in a traditional class, but are gentle and opening, creating balance and flow in the nadis (energy channels of the body).  In this way we get deeper than a regular asana class, we connect more fully with all the layers of our being, and we melt into the space of peace and relaxation.  Very restorative, very loving, and suitable for any level of yogi.

Available worldwide, and recorded if you can’t make the live times.

I truly do believe a new way is birthing, nature is breathing, and that all is well.  Hug your loved ones tight, give yourself permission to feel all and everything, and enjoy the beauty of the sun, the sky, and each beautiful moment.

Holding you all in light and love

Worldwide Community Sangha- What A Blessing!

Hi Beautiful Beings,

Two emails in a row. Wow, these are interesting times for sure.

Today after sending my last email out I was invited by a a few of my students to share my weekly Hatha Yoga Class Online.  I listened, and it feels very right, and very exciting to come together on Wednesdays in a larger global community to share a beautiful spirit based practice.

These classes are all levels- and are fine for every body. That being said, it’s a soothing class, not a restorative class. We challenge ourselves, by settling and sinking into our physical being, and allowing ourselves to melt and be with what arises. I offer many adjustments, and even if you just lie on your back the entire time, that is perfect. For me these classes are a opportunity to be a channel for what wants to come through for the group, and so there is always a beautiful weaving of spirit dancing through each moment and each word. There is a powerful magic that happens when we come together in community, in practice and in deep surrender, and I am so excited and honoured to share with you all. And what better medicine is there than deep breathing?

Yoga With Asrael

Flow with your breath. Connect with your spirit. Move into your being. These classes are great for all levels of yogi, offering a challenge to those more experienced, yet very accessible to the beginner. Flowing at times, we learn to be with our breath, our body, and our thoughts as we melt into the asanas. Experiencing the moment, opening the heart and the mind, and accepting the energy of being where we are, at the same time creating strength, stamina, and flexibility. Always infused with spirit and bliss, and lots of smiles:) Yoga poses, pranayama, and relaxation are all experienced in these classes.

Best of all is the beautiful community of yogi’s to connect, grow and share with.

A Path Awakening, A Gateway Opening

Namaste Beautiful Beings,

How are you?

A big question I know, and one that probably doesn’t have an easy answer. What a crazy, interesting and unprecedented time this is. A time that really has no clear answers and no clear direction of what may come over the next few weeks, in fact the only clarity that seems to be present  is that we must take the time to slow down, settle in and and be with ourselves.  Not an easy task for many, especially with so much uncertainty, yet a beautiful opportunity to give space to all that is arising. As we allow things to bubble (or perhaps flood is a better word), to the surface we are given the gifts to be embraced by the energy and emotions present, as well as to acknowledge them with understanding and grace. Feeling it all, yet not moving from those feelings, and perhaps most of all opening to a greater trust in all that is, even if we don’t know what that will be.

If things intensify over the next few weeks, as I sense they will, I invite you to take time to tune into your self. To honour what comes up, and yet to not move from any source of fear or uncertainty.  Take time to breathe. To be connected with your loved ones. To go outside and feel the earth underneath your feet. To meditate. To Smile. To Allow. And know you are not alone. Know you are held.  Know that you are part of a larger global community, and we are all being invited to slow down and step into a greater place of acceptance, of trust and of love.

In the spirit of community, and to create space for us to come together as one,  I am creating a circle to meet on Tuesday afternoons, starting March 24th. More info is below.

 


Nature Heals

I was blessed to be in Hawaii over the past few weeks, such a gentle place to witness the tidal wave of energy quickly sweeping through us all.  One of the things that was very clear to me when I was there, was the ever present power and “rightness” of nature. The birds were singing, the flowers were blooming, and life was living itself through the animals, and natural intelligence of nature. It is an important reminder to myself, and I feel for us all.  That nature heals.  That nature is in balance. That nature is medicine. And most importantly we are part of nature. So over the next few weeks I invite you to take time in nature if you can. Even if it’s just sitting in your backyard and taking a few breaths of fresh air, perhaps a simple and slow walk in the forest, or looking at the moon out your window.  If it’s warm enough you could even step outside in your bare feet- total grounding, total connection.  This gives us the opportunity to tune into something much bigger then ourselves, and helps to not just soothe our spirits and bodies, but to remind us that all is well, that all is divine.

One of the ways that I am reminded of the magic and healing energy of nature is through my experiences swimming with the wild spinner dolphins in Hawaii. I was blessed to have 5 mornings with them over the last few weeks. They are so amazing as they reflect the pure love and strength of the connection to the underlying field, and the powerful strength of the tribe as they dance in openhearted joy and play.

My husband took this video on our first day in the water- about 4 days before things started to really change. There were about 75-100 dolphins that day reminding me that there is nothing, like being embraced by the power of pure nature and pure LOVE.

A Path Awakening, A Gateway Opening

It truly is an unprecedented time. A time that is not comfortable, a time that does not feel certain or safe, yet one that opens the door to us for to surrender into each and every moment.
Perhaps even more importantly it opens the door to for acceptance. Acceptance of the unknown, Acceptance of our feelings, Acceptance that all that we thought was safe, secure and necessary may not be so, and acceptance that all we can do right now is trust and go with the flow.
It’s a beautiful practice to be with. And one that is not comfortable.
And so I turn to gratitude. I am grateful to be given the opportunity to learn greater trust. I am grateful to be able to experience so many different feelings. I am grateful to be in connection with nature.  I am grateful to be aligned with the larger global community of you all- and all my friends/clients around the world. I am grateful to be able to be here now, experiencing such powerful times.
And I remember- The earth is singing- the dolphins are swimming, the air is breathing brightly as it has a break from industry, from airplanes, cars etc.. That all is more than well.
A recalibration is happening. A door is opening and a new path is being laid. I really believe this.  I am so curious to see where it will lead.

Thank you all for taking the time to read this- I am so thankful for our connection. Know as we ride these waves we are held together in the beautiful web of life, and it is such an honour to be on this journey with you.
Love to you All. Love, Love, Love.
Asrael
