Three years ago, it was safe to say that I had a major imbalance and blockage in the my throat chakra. I was too shy to speak up for I believed, too insecure to stand up for and declare what I wanted, and too scared to sing out loud, even for myself when no one was watching.

I remember vividly feeling disabled and challenged when I could not use my voice the way the others did during my 300 YTT, Yoga Teacher Training, in Shamanic Yoga at the Mystical Yoga Farm.

I did not know any songs, and definitely could not sing in front of others, not even in ceremony or sacred circle.

After a deep medicine journey at the end of my training, I remember taking away one thing from it all… I needed to learn how to sing, and that as a ceremonialist it is essential...

My Dearest Beloveds,

Tonight we have a New Moon in the sign of Pisces, and meanwhile Uranus is also moving into Taurus. This shift is the start of a new cycle as Uranus will stay in Taurus 'til 2026.
 
And as if this wasn’t enough to move some things around, Mercury goes retrograde today and will stay retrograde for most of the month.
 
So what does this mean?
 
Pisces is a water sign, it is a sign related to our deeper emotions, our internal world and spiritual self. Pisces is the sign of empaths, and of selfless service. It is related to mysticism, the arts, music, and healing.
 
With this New Moon in Pisces, we are able to connect more deeply to any present energies, insights, emotions, and compassion.
 
Uranus is very independent; it is the...

What is Kambo?


Kambo is a Spiritual Earth medicine that comes from the gland excretions of the Amazonian frog, Phyllomedusa bicolor (Giant Leaf Frog). 

It is used in Shamanic Ritual to bring about purification, clarity, strength, and vitality. 

Kambo helps you relieve your physical and energetic body of dense energy, disease, addiction, pain, trauma, and even Cancer. It cleanses and polishes your body, mind and soul allowing you to reclaim your life force energy. 

Kambo increases your awareness and connection to your true self and intuition; it also gives you more energy, confidence, clarity, and vision so that you may see and express your divinity, creativity, and purpose.

Kambo has long been used by indigenous Pano-speaking tribes of the...

My Dearest Beloveds,

Happy Full Moon! 

This full moon falls in the sign of Taurus on October 24th, at 9:45am PST.
 
Today, we enter Scorpio season as well... all while traversing the underworld with Venus in Retrograde ( Transit lasting from Oct 5th to Nov 16th).
 
What does this all mean? Well lots of things, but the overarching theme this month into next is re-evaluation, re-lease, re-volution and re-birth.  

Up until today we have been in the sign of Libra, which has us observing and reflecting on our relationships. Relationships not only with loved ones, i.e. our partners, lovers, family, and friends, but also our relationship with our self, our bodies, our energy, our diet, health, money, habits, ideas, social norms, and anything re...

New Moon

During the time of the New MOON, what happens is that the Dark Side of the Moon is illuminated, the side that is invisible to us, the side that we don’t see from here on Earth. 

Thus our own dark side, dark meaning subtle/ unseen..or invisible, is also illuminated, bringing light and awareness to our inner workings, deepest desires and personal truth… 

Also, at the new moon, the lunar gravity pulls water up to the surface of the soil.. And since we are self are made of 70% water, our own blood levels, mood and brain are affected by the moon.

During this time our personal emotional waters, feelings, desires are also brought to surface. Making it a great time for self reflection and a time that we are encouraged to go inward. 

For women,...

My Dear Beloveds,

Happy Holidays! It is with great hope that you are all spending your time with loved ones or with your beloved self. I am actually spending this Christmas Eve night alone. Practicing Self-Love by resting and taking time out of my travels to go inward and create space and time for inner and spiritual guidance and inspiration to come through. 

Currently, I am in San Marcos Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, the motherland of Cacao! There are parties and fireworks all around, but after a busy week of flight delays, jet lag, dining, touring, traveling, and dancing, I realized that all I wanted for Christmas was a little me time. A little time to do my self-care practice, of yoga, tarot, candles, and essential oils. For me, this is the m...

Everyone knows that chocolate tastes good and even makes you feel good, but did you know that Chocolate in it’s pure raw form, Cacao, is actually a natural plant medicine revered for it’s physical, mental, and spiritual healing effects. Cacao, Pure Chocolate, has been given as a gift or offering during special occasions like Valentines day, Wedding Ceremonies, and birthdays, as a token of love and as a way to indulge in delight and yummyness. The indigenous people of the Central and South Americas regarded it as the drink of love, and Theobroma Cacao literally means Cacao - "Food of the Gods." The Aztecs called it Heart Blood because they were aware of its health benefits such as it’s ability to increase blood flow to the heart and all the extre...

Hi Cacao Lover,

How are you? Are you feeling the Scorpio Energy in the air? For those of you that follow astrology, here are a few insights as we just entered the Jupiter in Scorpio portal that started on Tuesday, October 10th, 2017, and lasts until November 8th, of 2018. Remembering that what is playing out astrologically in the cosmos is merely a reflection of what is happening in the collective consciousness, some things may resonate, some may not, but, like the two sides of a coin, there are always two ways to look that these trends as they are expressed or witnessed.

Jupiter is the biggest planet, so it expands all energies that it passes through. Thoughts, memories, and desires from our depths will be rising to the surface to be seen, and we...

So originally a few years ago, I purchased the domain name, Love is Light is Knowledge with the intention of starting a blog to share little pieces of information and wisdom about yoga, health, spirituality, and conscious living. Unfortunately, that never happened. Call me a master procrastinator, lazy, confused, and maybe even afraid. Afraid to fail or to sound unintelligent, anything less than perfect. Living in fear that I may be judged or not accepted for revealing too much about the inner workings of this evolving/revolving mind, or that my writing wasn't good enough and my life was too crazy. Whatever this wall or debilitating force was, it was enough to keep me from realizing my dream of writing and sharing a blog about my insights and jo...
