Why are you here? What is the message you are trying to put out into the world? I’ve talked a lot about spreading your personal message in the past but now I want to go more in-depth. In this latest vlog I share my practical and spiritual tools for manifesting media for your message. I believe that it is our responsibility to share our great work with the world. Learn how to release your fears, be unapologetic about your message and share it with pride.

In today’s economy is there a way to make a decent living but have autonomy over our time? My friend Kate Northrup grew up always knowing she wanted to be a mom – but one that was financially free and had the ability to be present and there for her kids. So she began writing about her journey, and developing tips to share with you.
I’m so proud to share my Kate’s first book, MONEY, A Love Story. In this video, Kate shares how you can untangle your financial woes and create the life you really want. Check out the book here and feel free to leave questions for Kate in the comments below. She will reply!
My favorite passage from A Course in Miracles is:
There is a way of living in the world that is not here, although it seems to be. You do not change appearance, though you smile more frequently. Your forehead is serene; your eyes are quiet.

When we fall in love, it can be easy to lose ourselves. New relationships can be blissful and exciting, but if we get carried away they can feel scary and out of control. In this vlog I share tips on how to maintain your power and your sense of self when you fall in love.
For more on this topic join me in September for my 3-week course on Fearless Relationships workshop.

My summer began with a series of retreats and live events. I kicked off retreat season with a debut appearance at Wanderlust Festival in Vermont. As a new yoga teacher it was an honor to be invited to share my work with the Wanderlust community of hardcore yogis.
As I drove up the mountain toward the festival entrance, I felt a rush of energy pass through my body. It was a familiar experience–the same feeling I had each summer as I arrived at sleepaway camp. Throughout my whole life I’ve gotten high off large-scale gatherings of like-minded people. Wanderlust was my new camp!
The next morning I journeyed into the main festival tent to get mic’d for my talk. I felt the energy of the community as hundreds of high-vibe yogis entered into the space. I hit the stage and a power greater than me took over before I even said a word. That lecture was the highlight of my summer (so far), and I’m psyched to share it with you.

Let’s face it: in some form or another we all suffer from addiction. These days we often turn to drugs, alcohol, food, sex, work, the Internet, and many other addictive obsessions in efforts to avoid feeling our discomfort. If we’re not addicted to drugs, cigarettes, or the typical vices then we are subconsciously addicted to fear, rejection, victim-hood etc. In some way we’re all addicted to negative patterns.
When we’re addicted there is an imbalance in the pineal gland also called the the third eye. The pineal gland is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain. When the pineal gland is imbalanced bad habits turn into addictions. The imbalance in the pineal gland affects the pituitary gland which regulates the rest of the glandular system. When the pituitary gland is affected the entire body and mind go out of balance.
Use this meditation for any type of addiction from alcoholism to addiction to fear based thoughts.
Breakdown as taught by Yogi Bhajan
Sit in an Easy Pose, with a light jalandhar bandh (neck bent gently forward). Straighten the spine and make sure the first six lower vertebrae are locked forward.
Eyes: Keep the eyes closed and focus at the Brow Point.
Mudra: Make fists of both hands and extend the thumbs straight. Place the thumbs on the temples and find the niche where the thumbs just fit. This is the lower anterior portion of the frontal bone above the temporal-sphenoidal suture. Lock the back molars together and keep the lips closed. Keeping the teeth pressed together throughout,
alternately squeeze the molars tightly and then release the pressure. A muscle will move in rhythm under the thumbs. Feel it massage the thumbs and apply a firm pressure with the hands. Silently vibrate the five primal sounds—the Panj Shabd—SAA-TAA-NAA-MAA, at the brow.
Time: Continue for 5-7 minutes. With practice the time can be increased to 20 minutes and ultimately to 31 minutes.
Satnam, friends! I’m super psyched to report that on Saturday I taught my first full Kundalini yoga and meditation class. I’ve been in teacher training since September, and leading a complete class was one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life!
In today’s vlog I’m spreading even more Kundalini love. So many of my readers and viewers struggle with meditation. Whether you’re a meditation newbie or have had a practice for years, the powerful act of tuning in can be challenging at times. To amp up your meditation practice and demystify the experience I’ve created this video on how to meditate.
