Metaphysics is not a destination, but your cosmic journey of a lifetime.


Spend your weekend surrounded with healing energy and love. As we open our hearts and hands as channels for the light and Reiki energy, we share with each other what aspects we are looking to heal as well while using intuitive guidance guided by plant medicine. Grab a bowl and gather round.

Taking the time to feel the symbolism of each surrounding aspect of life, we dive deep into Tarot and Animal Speak. Guided through the many varieties of Earth Medicine, we honor the goddess in ourselves and each soul. Indulge yourself with Past Life clues, Fairy spirits, Animal lore, and Ancient Numerology.


Gongs, Crystals, and Tibetan Bowls oh My! Let us increase your frequency with the healing sound therapy techniques of yesteryear. Sound Therapy is so effective because it influences our emotional bodies as well as our physical bodies. Emotional imbalances are at the root of many physical diseases and when we heal our emotional bodies, the physical symptoms disappear. Sound and emotions are deeply connected.


Experience the yoga you have been waiting for. Each session dedicated to releasing your past traumas and energies you may not be aware you still harbor. The sacred beat of the Buffalo Drum resonates with your heart and sends you deep into a healing wonderland. Come out journaling to your Higher Self, vowing to work and release what no longer serves you both.



As our native ancestors council around the fire, we come together with sacred gifts to release and let go. Letting go of judgement, fear, and anxiety. Confronting our ego and having it take a back seat. Learn to be in the seat of your soul as you pull from your depths as we dance around the fire.

The fire dance is an intensive healing practice not to be taken lightly. To push your limits and release toxins while expressing your temple in your most creative way. Sacred dance takes shape in the body of the Goddess.



A sacred grid aligned and customized to your healing needs and a sacred gratitude ritual to send you off. Ready to live in grace with the energies and forms that have created the perfect being you are!

Metaphysics: A Beginners Guide

Metaphysics: A Beginners Guide
Meta derives from the Greek meaning “beyond”, “upon” or “after”.
Psychics is the branch of science concerned with the nature and properties of matter and energy.

This means Metaphysics goes beyond science and what we know of the nature, energy, and matter.
The energy we can not see but feel. Do not simply shrug it off as hocus pocus because you have not opened up your mind and let your ego step aside to understand it.
There is a cosmic energy flow that you feel deep in your heart, that is a divine energy, a spiritual energy, A LIFE Force energy. Call it God, Jesus, Spirit, Universe, whatever…it is an energy.
We distinguish things in our minds before our heart even gets a chance to speak. We categorize and compare, which is led by the ego. The heart is the seat of your COSMIC FLOW. The universal gift each is given and must choose to act upon or remain at the will of the Ego. LET Go Of EGO!! When you do, you open yourself up to the wisdom that is buried deep inside your subconscious. The wisdom waiting to be remembered. Metaphysics enables you to take a closer look at your thoughts from sitting in the cosmic heart seat.

Being in Nature and specifically utilizing Crystal and Plant Spirits, added with having a mindful intention of gratitude every day, brings us closer to our ancestors way of life who could tap into an elusive magical knowing. It resided in their conscious and they understood and honored this.
 In our modern society, we have been stuffed into a box starting from the earliest age of how we “should” do, see, and feel things. PLEASE take this word out of your vocabulary! Especially when talking to your children. The only should in your life needs to be taking the time to be in nature a little bit every day.
The Plants and Crystal spirits were the first to inhabit the planet. Plant Spirits can teach us so much, working with psychedelic plant spirits has helped me see the world as a giant web. When one piece comes apart, the entire web can be diminished. We must stay connected and intertwined. Do Not let your ego separate you from someone because they don’t believe or even think the same way as you. The consciousness stored inside the plants and crystals has much to teach us if we simply listen.

Intentionally working with metaphysics and even taking the time to communicate with the other forms of consciousness on the world is vital to our species evolving. Some people say we are more disconnected than ever, but I don’t believe that. I believe that we are awakening more each day with the help of our crystal and plant spirit companions who have been here waiting for us to awaken to our full potential.
The blood, intention, and souls of those ancient beings still resides in our subconscious and the consciousness of the earth.
We must reconnect with our heart and let it speak before speaking straight out of the mind. Go Beyond what you feel and dig deeper into WHY you feel the way you feel. Examine your patterns and do everything with a positive intention.
Don’t shame someone else simply because they don’t live their life the way you think they “should.”
-The Stoned Housewife

We each have a unique path and if by some chance your soul is an all knowing cosmic being, wouldn’t you want to live beyond the properties of matter and energy?

Always remember:

Arranging crystals into a geometric formation activates the subtle and powerful energies which create a vortex of intention based healing. Begin by writing your intention down on a sheet of paper or pulling a tarot card for the theme of your grid.
What is your intention? What needs to be healed or released?
Select Crystals:
There is no specific perfect pattern you have to have, if you don’t own 45 crystal quartz points, do not worry. Grab the crystals that you feel called to use. Start by creating a center point such a selenite heart or geometric shaped crystal. This is the essence of your grid. You can also use a candle or goddess statue if you prefer. This is YOUR grid…make it your own.
Begin The Ritual:
Honoring each direction lay your crystals out in North. South, East, and West. I also like to represent the four elements as well. Before placing each crystal down, hold the crystal near your heart and say hello to its spirit (just as you would greet your beloved animal companion) and say thank you for the assistance. They will hold this in their consciousness as they want to connect with us.

The Flower of Life is a perfect map for your grid.

Grids are symmetric for even energy distribution. When you create intuitively and
acknowledge your stones, you create a a reflection of your intentions.
You are activating the ancient crystal healer in you whom worked with these spirits long before this incarnation.
Take a pendulum, wand, Quartz point, or simply your finger if you wish, and begin and touch the center piece and from there touch the north crystal and touch back to the center, to the east crystal and back to the center and so on. You are creating a line of energy connecting to each crystal aligning and deepening your intention.Visualize this energy rising as a golden light above your grid. Circle round to the north point and stop in the center.
Once complete visualize your intention in whatever ritual you are about to perform. Even if it a simple meditation, set up a crystal grid to enhance the energy around your space.
Keep the grid up for as long as you like. If children or animals mess it up, the grid is no longer needed and you can put it away. Trust the consciousness in the crystals is also a part of the same consciousness within you. Be open to receiving whatever assistance they may or may not have to offer.

Divine Union: A Balance


Men as well as women have been on both sides of the oppressed and the oppressor throughout the history of mankind. The imbalance of logic keeps a cyclic battle going of “this one needs to be re-awakened, and this one needs to sit back”.

Within the past few days I have had numerous discussions and the same thing seems to be on everyone’s mind. The entire one sided debate of exclusivity is dissolving. When I see “The Future is Female” I have to respectively disagree.  I do see it as being FeMale: a divine union and companionship of both the sacred masculine and the divine feminine. The Female does not need to take the reins and lead the pack but gracefully arrive with her hands warm with love to assist in the transition. The imbalance can not be healed if one side must “take over”.

The Divine Masculine is not a distant, detached, jealous and vengeful male deity. The Divine Masculine (along with the Divine Feminine) acts as a shining mirror of the Self, revealing aspects that need compassionate attention and support to become one’s highest potential.

As multifaceted, conscious-embodied beings, we each have a complex psychological and emotional constitution that produces our inner health and outer reality. When one becomes imbalanced it manifests in our bodies and in our life.

Each one of us, male and female, carries within our psyche both Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine archetype energies. From these archetypes come our conscious thoughts, plans, desires, goals and agendas. With these energies playing pivotal emotional roles in everyday occurrences. It is imperative to balance these as to fully experience this journey fully and joyously.

Contemplate on which of these qualities you already possess in both the Feminine and Masculine. Bringing an attention and awareness to what you are already building within and you will attract more of the same frequency. Revel in the fullness of how you embody each aspect in your life.

As you acknowledge and accept what you are already doing, you will notice more places where you already are, or are beginning to, embody the fullness of the archetype.

The Feminine Archetypes are:

    • Goddess- She is “immanence” (divine presence) personified, spiritually balanced, transcendentally driven, and emanates love to all without distinction or prejudice. While she is the originator of ideas and solutions she seeks collaboration and consensus in their outworking and manifestation.*
    • Mother-  She is compassionate, benevolent, deeply caring, expansively loving, evenhanded, calm, persistent, caring, present, and rejoices in the success and happiness of those who enjoy her care and selfless loving.
    • Warrioress- Her grounded confidence, calm demeanor, and strength of stature is evident and unheralded. She contributes without fanfare or directing—or requiring attention. She promptly responds to requests of service showing respect to all, especially to those “elder” to her, as well as other men, women, and children, animals and the earth.
    • Divine-Mother

Lover- The Lover is the epitome of Sensual. She exudes sensuality in her mood, look, walk, bearing, and engagement. She is intimately interested in all forms of sensory contact, experiencing the world in all its splendor. She is the archetype of play and healthy erotic embodiment without shame.*

  • Priestess- She is thoughtful and reflective having depth to her presence and intellect. She knows how to detach from inner and outer storms and how to connect deep inner truths and resources with her grounded experience of life. She sees a higher possibility and attunes to its resonanc
    e. She is not easily influenced by faddish impulses and brings power and confidence to difficult situations requiring change or shifting -with grace and insight.
  • Wise Woman-She quietly and deftly orchestrates and imparts wise counsel and intuitive direction that shifts the receiver into new possibilities and pathways that reflect “right action” for their life path. She unobtrusively supports the wisdom of others, not seeking acclaim or notice for her contribution. She is thoughtful and reflective and rests in her felt connection with spirit and grounded connection with the earth, Gaia, the source of her wisdom and intuition.

The Masculine Archetypes are:

  • Warrior- His strength of stature is evident and unheralded—not needing accolades or compliments. He contributes without fanfare or needing to direct or “lord” himself over others. He eagerly responds to requests of service showing respect to all—especially to those “elder” to him, as well as other men, women, children, animals and the earth.
  • Lover- He is sensual. He is open and invites you to touch—his mind, body and soul. He is “connected” (integrated) and relishes physical, psychological and spiritual connection with others that highlights integrated expanded awareness and experience. He is immersed in the experience, present in the moment, focused on the quality of the connection and engagement. He appreciates beauty in all its forms and makes each moment a “work of art.” He appreciates the “sensuous” experience of life and resonates deeply on many levels of being. He is sensitive to others needs and moods and is intuitively responsive. He is “in his body” —animating it with vital energy through dance, yoga, or movement.
  • God-He stands for and contributes to the furtherance of the divine-right of happiness; equally for all races, genders, and sexual expressions.He leads by inspiring: creativity, beauty, and truth seeking—fulfilling the highest ideals and principles, through example and not aspiration alone.He is spiritually guided, supporting and sponsoring: creation, transcendence, and resolution in all its forms. He seeds thought forms and ideas—releasing ownership for the greater good.
  • King- He is supportive and nurturing of the well-being and easeful participation and happiness of those he engages with. He is a stabilizing and calming influence in all circumstances. By his balance and “potency” (strength, effectiveness) others are comforted and influenced to imitate his example. His demeanor is “seasoned” and carries wisdom with it, not adolescent impulsiveness.
  • Sage- Unheralded, he quietly and deftly shares with others wise counsel and channeled direction that shifts the receiver into new possibilities and pathways that reflect “right action” for their life path. He quietly supports the wisdom of others, not seeking acclaim or notice for his contribution. He is thoughtful and reflective and rests in his felt connection with spirit and grounded connection with the earth, Gaia, the source of his wisdom and insight.
  • Priest- You are with a man who is the master of his spiritu
  • Virat_rupa_vishnu-300x225.jpgal and material realities and knows how to call forth from spiritual storehouses what he needs to transmute energies that would overtake or topple other men not in this fullness. He is thoughtful and reflective, having depth to his presence and intellect. He knows how to obtain higher perspective and detach from (or become neutral to) inner and outer storms and how to connect deep inner truths and resources with his experience of life. He is not easily pushed or pulled by faddish influences but with grace and insight he brings power and confidence to difficult situations requiring resolution, change or shifting.*

Reiki and Frequency Healing Sessions In The Comfort Of Your Home

Reiki and Frequency Healing Sessions In The Comfort Of Your Home

“A healer’s power stems not from any special ability, but from maintaining the courage and awareness to embody and express the universal healing power that every human being naturally possesses.”
― Eric Micha’el Leventha

I know that inside each of us is the power and ability to help alleviate the weight we carry. 

I have been there, in the darkest times of my own shadow, barely able to recognize myself, letting people who truly loved me slip through the cracks. I also knew my light could help me. I could feel it still there before I decided to choose to live in lower energy frequencies. I remember the exact moment that I was full of source energy and that same energy which created every single conscious and unconscious element around me, was available to me. I stepped back into the light. I am not going to tell you it was hard because it wasn’t.

The hardest part was living in the despair and fear of constantly giving my power away. Thinking someone else was ever in charge of my emotions was constantly keeping me in a creepy limbo state of mind, wrought with terrible things continuing to happen. I had given up long ago as a young child looking outside of myself for comfort from others. I could fall asleep soundly by simply releasing all my cares and reassuring myself, ” It’s going to be OK.” And you know what!? IT ALWAYS WAS.

I am not here to try and fix you but I am here to guide you along the way to helping  feel happier in your skin. I believe our DNA is coded with light to heal and sometimes having someone understanding of these frequencies  in your time of need, is the most healing feeling of all. I am here to help you, as you heal, I heal, and Humanity Heals. It starts with you!

This is why I offer in home personal Reiki and Frequency sessions. Each session includes a 60 minutes of Reiki therapy with sound frequency healing, a sacred space clearing, intuitive tarot guidance, buffalo drumming, special meditation and affirmation, and crystal and plant companions for you to keep.

Utilizing intensive sound healing along with the aid of specific crystals for your intention to clear your home, I clear each space with Sacred herbs, Agua Florida, Sage, and Offerings. Before I arrive at your home we will go over in detail what you know about your home and the current state of affairs. I have assisted in many clearings and blessings and regularly clear my home as well.

Drum therapy is an ancient approach that uses rhythm to promote healing and self-expression. From the shamans of Mongolia to the Minianka healers of West Africa, therapeutic rhythm techniques have been used for thousands of years to create and maintain physical, mental, and spiritual health. I bring my personal ancestry from France and the Muguzawa tribe of Africa.


Each session begins with the intention of being an open channel for the highest healing you need at the time. It is best to allot a total time of 90 minutes for the entirety of your session. Send me an email and lets discuss your availability.

If all we have is hope and hope is all we need.

Living Out Of A Book: My Fairy Tale Home In The Wilderness

Living Out Of A Book: My Fairy Tale Home In The Wilderness


I used to live in a house that was literally something out of a book, but for real, you can buy the book here and the passive solar house he speaks of, is the one he built in the high hills of the Cohutta Wilderness. This place was my home for a short time and has been a major impact on how I have continued to live here in Colorado. Sit back and grab some tea because I used to live in a fairy tale.

Order and Balance are the Law of the Cosmos, Follow and he shall be one with the All. #emerald tablets

This was my view each morning when I woke up for about 16 months.  There is so much I could say about this house and how it changed me but honestly, I feel like I really came into myself. So let’s start off with the magic beginnings of how this little slice of off grid heaven came into my path.

I was working at a small town restaurant and living at the foot of the Cherokee National Forest when a friend sent me a message asking if I was looking for some where to move. I never spoke to him about it, but I did put out into the universe that the right house would find us! Sure enough his exact words were, “I think fate wants you to live in North Georgia.”  We made plans to come down and see the place which was a 40 minute drive south. That week we were traveling 12 hours north to attend The Electric Forest Festival in Michigan. Little did I know this was our surprise engagement trip as well!

You can read that whole story here!

We decided we wanted to check the place out BEFORE driving to Michigan. We made the quick drive to check the place out briefly and think on it while we were on vacation.  We drove back into the Georgia wilderness, 15 minutes from the nearest store, down long windy roads. Roads that were paved over the Trail of Tears. I saw the sign for the Red Clay National Park and knew we had to be close.

We pulled up to the top of a hill and there we saw it.

Is that a boat?

What looked like an upside down boat was a huge hand built work of sacred art. We loved it and we told them we would move in as soon as we were back from Michigan.  Now it off to celebrate. Remember, I had no idea I was getting engaged but I knew something was up! I had a feeling the week could not get any better and I already knew it was going to be amazing.

Off to Michigan we went! We were backstage and engaged! Now the en’rage’ment party began.

String Cheese Incident Electric Forest 2014: Photo Brian Spady Photography

So being on the extreme high that comes from dancing your ass off and getting engaged to the love of your life really sets you on a path to be in the flow of prosperity.  We came back to TN elated for what the future would hold for us. We had no idea what we were in store for.

We came to the Red House and met the owner. David built the home back in 1980’s because someone told him he could not build a passive solar efficient house in the hills of the Cohutta so he did. He did it with such spiritual intent that you could literally feel the protection. I never wanted to leave. For the most part I didn’t!

Every inch, every detail, every piece of stained glass was meant to be there. He built it to where there was a silent meditation space in the center of the house in between the closets but above the stairs. The sun would rise into the triangle stained glass and prisms would shoot everywhere. The windows! OH THE WINDOWS!!!!

The windows laid out to catch all the warmth of the day. Passive Solar Energy for the win!

He told us of his love of the house and how it was only ever him and his wife. We would be the first family with a child to come into this space. That was magical. Little did we know 4 weeks later I would find out we were being graced with another spirit.  The day we moved David gave me the book he had written called, There is A Tomorrow which I read in two days. I highly suggest if you are having a hard time with the current state of the country/the world to read this book and open yourself up to a different frequency. David’s wife was a magical woman who was a high priestess in ancient Egyptian magic.  She built a huge crystal altar next to a 200 year old tree and I could feel her energy every where, especially around the crystal altar. I knew this was her sacred space. It became such a strong hold for me and saw so many rituals.

Clear Quartz Crystal Altar

Here is where I really dove into myself. This is where I started my esoteric studies in The Emerald Tablets, Nikola Tesla, Tarot, Herbalism, Shamanism, Crystal Healing, and really  went head first into my Reiki therapy.  I also found out I was pregnant with my second child and became very empowered to have a natural home birth.

I told my friends I was really connecting to Mother Nature. Living in this space with an orchard, passive solar energy, giant black snakes that called the place home, all of it was a great release for me. We were so much in nature that I even found a snake in my dresser drawer one day! Talk about freaking the F out! I lived in it! It wasn’t just some trip into the river and you see a snake run away, It was a god damn snake in my house. Not just on one occasion. There were at least 5 times when we had to get snakes out of the house. Medicine from mama!

We loved this space and in turn we wanted to give back to David once we were gone. So we built many regenerative garden beds, secured the balcony for the little ones, painted the entire place, and gave all the love we could to each other and the radical group of neighbors that lived around the hill with us.

Our sassafras tree starting to turn her leaves!!! The dog days are heading out and the cool rejuvenation of autumn is in our midst. The exploration of new beginnings is in full swing! It will be bittersweet to leave our little gypsy hut but I will bask in the beauty of a South eastern fall once more??????

Through that time we always had our plans to move to Colorado. First it was going to be after our little sunshine was born. Then it turned into after the wedding. But as the gypsys souls we have come from, we decided to drive hours to a festival, celebrate with our closest friends, and then move across the country.

It was bittersweet to move away from all the work we had put into making this little slice of heaven our own. So when it was time to come to Colorado, I knew that’s where my work would really begin.

Little home for the fairies????????

Here we are. Living a dream that we created in the Rocky Mountains. I do miss our gypsy hut and all the memories we made there will stay with me forever. Today I carry on this knowledge of all the wonderful gifts I gained out in the wilderness for a year and a half. I hope to build our own passive solar efficient house here one day or maybe I can get David to collaborate on a special hempcrete one! Hey a girl can dream!

Self Love Sanctuary: Sadhana with Ritual Radiance

Self Love Sanctuary: Sadhana with Ritual Radiance
 I met Loren through Instagram when we both lived 1300 miles away from each other. I had not been draw to yoga in a dedicated form until I met this beauty. She basically had me experience something I had been looking for in regular yoga classes. I just could not separate myself from the electromagnetic charge of the computer to really get into flow of my own.The classes I had been to were not the ideal setting to really go within. I was angry and irritated with myself. I was about to swear off yoga once and for all.

Then Loren and I found ourselves less than 5 miles apart living in the same city less than a year after we met. She told me about Kundalini Yoga and how she was struggling with finding something that spoke to her soul as well. The chants, the mantras, the extended periods of weird arm movements; I literally fell in love again with yoga since the first time I took a class in Knoxville Tennessee.

Loren developed a specific Sadhana, a daily practice, for me after an in depth questionnaire about what I was dealing with in my waking reality. Loren opened my heart and eyes to the most powerful prosperity I have ever known, and I tested it out for real! I quit doing all my practices for two whole weeks and literally everything changed again. These practices WORK and Loren is truly a divine shining pillar of light. How important is a Daily practice? Extremely. It doesn’t have to be Kundalini, but You deserve to enrich your life with ancient sound codes and charge your energy field with practices that embody Self Love. Read my interview below with the ethereal Loren of Ritual Radiance.

3.18.2017-17 (1)

TSH: What would you suggest to women who are to think they are busy to devote time to a daily practice?
LC:I suggest rethinking your idea of a daily practice! Shifting your perspective on what a daily practice is will open up the possibility for practice in every and any moment. Many of us get caught up in the idea that our daily practice has to be a long, complex, esoteric situation but it really doesn’t! I find it hard to believe anyone who tells me that they can’t create five minutes of time in the day to practice. Once you create those five minutes for yourself, just spend it breathing long and deep. Or sit peacefully and chant a single mantra. It can be that easy, as long as you let it be. Of course, you can also do more complex practices, but start small and build from there! We just have to get out of our own way every once and a while and see how simple it can be.
TSH: What would be your desert island tool kit if you only had to meditate all day?
LC: An island dedicated solely to just making your practice more enriched.
I love the idea of this island! I would bring…
+a ton of living spring water
+a meditation cushion — my hips would hate me otherwise!
+mantra music (particularly tunes by White Sun, Nirinjan Kaur, Nirinjan Kaur Khalsa, Snatam Kaur, Mirabai Ceiba, Singh Kaur, and Alexia Chellun — look these gorgeous artists up if you aren’t familiar with them!)
+Living Tea — for tea ceremony
+sunscreen and my Frankincense Beauty Balm to cover all skincare needs!
TSH: What is the greatest reward you have gotten from your sadhana?
I have come home to myself. My true self, my infinite self. Most of my life was spent pretending to be someone else out of fear and longing to belong. Through my Sadhana, I was shown the path back to who I truly am. Embodying myself in this way has made me more radiant, more successful, and more happy!
TSH: I started my daily practice with help and guidance from you, what would you say to someone who wants to start but doesn’t know where to begin?
LC: Start right now. In this moment: close your eyes, and breathe long and deep for three minutes. Open your eyes, go about your day. Voila, you’ve completed your daily practice in under five minutes! I say this because we often make grand, sweeping statements about our desire or intention to create a daily practice. But then, in our day to day life, we don’t actually act on that desire. If you are feeling inspired to start a daily practice, start it right now while you have the energy and motivation! It also helps to keep it simple and short in the beginning. My daily practice is a twenty minute recitation of a Gurmukhi poem, but I would almost never give a client that practice
to start with. I think that pranayam (breathwork) exercises are great because they’re accessible, the effects are experienced immediately, and you can do them while laying in bed, in the bathroom, driving in the car, flying on an airplane, cooking, showering, etc. Don’t place blocks in your path!
If you’re looking for an accessible, convenient tool for creating a new daily practice, I just
launched The Sacred Self Care Journal. It’s a by-donation resource that has over 30 Kundalini Yoga practices (a new one for each day of the lunar cycle!), daily writing exercises, monthly and weekly check-ins, and a special page for both the New Moon and Full Moon! You can find it on
my website. I’ve use it daily and it’s blowing my mind how powerful
these small practices can be!
What do you want to give back or put out into the universe by teaching Kundalini Yoga?
Kundalini Yoga, in my opinion, is the most effective technology we have today to face the
challenges of our world — which are many. We are living in a very interesting time, but I feel we
incarnated here with a specific purpose. Part of my own purpose, because it is layered and complex, is to stand under these teachings and share them so that others may be elevated.
Yogi Bhajan said that, as a Teacher of Kundalini Yoga, your students should be at least ten
times greater than you. In my sharing this lineage, I aim to co-create a community of people who are fully expressed, fully embodied, grounded, loving beings. I see so many communities today that are created around the idea of “My life is so wonderful, so you should follow me and like me and invest in me to become like me.”
I’m excited that I’m creating a community that honors each person as their own uniquely beautiful medicine and encourages them to invest in and be themselves.
We are all so gorgeous in our diversity! I love giving people the tools to be guided back to their own truth and their own medicine, allowing them to activate a radiance from within that is unlike any other.
TSH: Can you share a meditation that anyone can say to help increase their self love whenever the feel like it may be lower than usual?
LC: Simply chant the mantra I am bountiful, blissful, beautiful. Bountiful, blissful, beautiful am I. Allow the mantra to cut through and replace the destructive thought/behavior pattern. What’s your advice when starting a sadhana? Should women take it slow or dive in head first for an hour plus?
Everyone is different in what they can handle right off the bat. I would suggest starting small but with determination and grit. If you can’t do three minutes of daily practice, you’re not going to magically find the time, space, and grace to do an hour of daily practice out of nowhere. You have to build that energy! So start small and build up. When I first began practicing, I did a three minute meditation for about three months before increasing my time or changing my practice.
And yet, I only want to encourage anyone who is excited about longer practices! Just remember not to fall into guilt consciousness if you aren’t able to do the full practice daily. Life is life! And life is the real practice.
TSH: Have you developed more Self Love since you started your sadhana?
LC: In some ways, it feels like I developed ALL of my self-love since I started my Sadhana. Before I began practicing Kundalini Yoga, I had horrible acne, anxiety, confusion about my path in life… I didn’t believe in myself, love myself, or think I was worth anyone’s time. It all sounds so dramatic written out, but I think many of us are living life in the same way, not even realizing how much more rich, expansive, light, and joyful our lives can be.

Loren Teaches Classes Every Thursday at Urban Sanctuary Denver and you can follow along with Loren on her Instagram Ritual Radiance. You can also find Loren leading The Green Lodge Gatherings in Boulder May 22 and June 26! Request Tickets Here. Now Go give your Self Some LOVE!!!!

I came to back to understanding that part of having Self Love is really accepting that NOT EVERYTHING IS FOR YOU. No matter what anyone tells you, You have to make this decision to love yourself with the intention to do it in YOUR own truth. No ONE can tell you that their truth is your truth! Maybe Yoga, Hiking, Meditation, Cannabis, whatever really did heal them BUT whenever you do not release the EMOTIONAL THOUGHT PATTERN that created dis-ease in the physical body in the first place, you can never truly heal.   I love Kundalni because I can feel the words radiate through my being.

Cannabis Is Bringing Together A New Sisterhood In Boulder

Cannabis Is Bringing Together A New Sisterhood In Boulder

At least 158 Million people worldwide use Cannabis for medicinal, recreational, and spiritual purposes. This number increases daily as more people understand the power of this plant, and women in Colorado are coming together to prove they also can benefit from the community it brings.

Entrepreneur and hierophant that Cannabis can help woman dissolve “the competition complex,” Maggie Murphy of Colorado, also known as The Stoned Housewife, is blazing this path with The Green Lodge Goddess Gathering.

Once each month, with dates currently scheduled through June 2017 at the Vali Soul Sanctuary in Boulder, healers from all over the world are invited to enrich the lives of the women at the Green Lodge Goddess Gatherings. The theme, though always centered around indigenous Earth Medicine, changes each month, so ladies are encouraged to attend as many as possible to build upon previous teachings. While the theme may change, Maggie insists that one thing is for certain,

“Participants can expect that Loren, the house Kundalini instructor, will push them and enhance their moon flow by giving them specific sound currents and mantras to open up the neural pathways and promote healing.”

Regular attendee, Danielle Webster shared her thoughts about the most recent gathering,

“I have to say, smoking indoors in a public space is really cool. It’s even cooler to do this in a space with a bunch of other lady stoners who are coming together to use cannabis in a thoughtful and lackadaisical way. It’s not just about getting stoned, it’s about connecting through the use of cannabis to relax everyone and make them more comfortable in the environment. “

Through the Stoned Housewife brand, Maggie, is continuing to expand this community with partnerships for future lodges in California, Arizona, and Nevada.

“I love to create a space where women can come together and try new aspects of healing on multiple levels, and where each individual feels like her being there contributes to everyone,” Maggie explained. As one of the most affordable Cannabis friendly workshops in the area, they also aim to give back as much as possible to the women. “There is a gift exchange at the end of each event, and every woman walks away with a newly blessed treasure. Sometimes a simple gift of the intention to make someone else happy is the most healing someone can get that day.”

When asked what her vision for the future of the Green Lodge is, Maggie explains,

“I want to continue this growing tribe of women and have lodges all around the world, Cannabis is a small but integral part of women coming together in a unifying setting. There is no need for the ego because we all come with the intention to be a community.”

Recapping the last Green Lodge, Danielle said, “We were all together chanting, moving, and holding our bodies. Loren (the lodge Kundalini Yoga instructor) pushed us as we did forms of yoga ‘exercises’ we’ve never done before, and as a team we all learned how hard it is to sit still. Certain chants made us laugh together, others made us cry, but overall we all felt 100% more connected than when we had began the gathering. ”

Future dates for the lodge include April 24th, May 22nd, June 26th.
