TRUE YOGA

10365961_754462764586172_397545263128891630_nThis perfectly describes how after teaching Yoga for 15,000 hours over the course of 19 years to thousands of people it became crystal clear to me that Yoga is not a practice that you simply do on a mat for 90 minutes a day.

True Yoga is a way of life where your intention is to live every moment in alignment with your purpose, values and big vision.
True Yoga is the path of incredibly conscious choices with your thoughts, words and deeds and in your relationships with all people, places and things so that as much as possible everything that you are choosing to be involved with is a resonant match for who you are and why you are here.
True Yoga is a practice that truly enhances your existence and assists you in becoming and embodying your highest potential.

It is this realization that inspired me to create Vibration Transformation, a lifestyle program for Heart centered Visionaries, Leaders and Teachers so that there is a clear multi-dimensional Yogic based path that helps you raise your vibration on all  levels, planes and dimensions of your life so that everything matches your mission, message and vision.

Countless blessings to us all on our magical journeys of LOVELIGHTBLISS.

Life Long Dream Come True

unnamedMEGA LIFELONG DREAM SUPREME COME TRUE DAY

After a back to back morning of sauna, meditation, Yoga practice and several clients I took a mid-day break to head down to the beach and jump into the ocean.

I came back up to my house and did my last Skype coaching session of the day in my bikini with ocean water dripping wet hair :-))

Just as my session ended my friend texted me:

Ocean dip?

YES! It’s friggin hot and I want to get back in that cool dream scene!
It’s time for round 2 dippety doo.

I cruised down the hill and met her and we caravanned back down to the beach.

As we drove I was oodling at how much fun I was having.

I am following one of my best friends as she revs through the twists and turns of Montecito in her new super foxy black Porsche and I am wearing nothing but my leopard print Brazilian bikini, freshly made green juice in hand singing along with Pharrell as he raises the vibration of the planet with HAPPY.

I was blissing.

We parked down at the same beach where I had just been swimming hours before, walked down to the seashore and the first thing I see is a dolphin leaping out of the ocean.

I looked at my girl and said:

I am going to go swimming with those lil pippins.

I threw down my towel, kicked off my sandals, flung off my sunglasses and ran into the sea and swam as fast as I could out towards a small pod of about 6-8 dolphins who were leaping and playing.

I have been swimming with wild dolphins many times in the Bahamas but this was the first time that I have ever been this close to our lil Pacific babies

Whenever I swim with the dolphins I talk to them in a high pitched tongue enhanced squeal that they seem to love.

People have always called me the Dolphin Girl when I am around the dolphins because they are always drawn to me and swirl their love mojo all around my everything.

Shortly after getting into the Sea I started my lil dolphin call and a stand up paddle boarder who could see the birds eye view of what was happening said:

They like you and they love that sound you are making and they are coming to play with you.

And then they were right there with me…jumping and frolicking and sparkling their high frequency LOVELIGHTBLISS all around me.

I played in their aquamarine playground with them for awhile and then they cruised up the coast and I started to swim in.

And when I was about half way in they came back and did a few more flips around me.

When I came back to shore and was laying out in the Sun a few people came up to me and said:

We were watching you play with the dolphins…we have never seen anything like that before!

And I said I have never had that experience before.
It’s a lifelong dream come true for me to play with dolphins in my home town.

As the crow flies, that beach, my beach, that I go to all the time is about 1/2 mile from where I grew up in Montecito.

Right here in the bay where I grew up swimming out the raft and hanging out at my God Parent’s beach house and sneaking into the Miramar Pool and getting chased out by Jacques the Miramar bicycle guardman and kayaking in the ocean with my dear ole dad.

Right here.
Right smack dab in a regular day doing what I do all the time when I am here.
Magic.
Pure magic.
Today a big ole dream came true that I have dreamed about my entire life.
It happened right here.
Right where I am.

So remember to dive into this moment.
Swim after your dreams.
And don’t give up.
There is so much LOVELIGHTBLISS for you here

(This photo was taken of me swimming with one of my fearless radical lover dolphin friends in the deep blue sea off the coast of Bimini.)

Yogi Lizard

10320485_10152379728973908_716298688036991651_nOne of the highlights of my day was finding this lil guy while on a bike ride.

He was about 2 feet long and soul gazed with me for a few minutes.

Most lizards are masters of Chatarunga, the Yoga pose that looks like a push up.

But as you can see, this lizard Yogi is doing a different pose called Reverse Namaste with his front legs.

Have you ever seen a lizard do such a thing?
I have met many a lizard in my day and this was a first.

The full pose is bringing both of your hands completely together behind your back.

It’s a very advanced pose for a lot of people because it requires major flexibility.

This guy is still working on it like many Yogis are.

I was impressed to meet a lizard who had the courage to try something new and felt extra honored that he he was flowing the Spirit of Namaste to me…in his own special Yogi lizard kind of way.

And now that I really feel into him and his message for me, it was:

Send Namaste blessings to the past and everything that is behind me.

I sure am happy that he took a break from his countless push-ups to send me this age old timeless lesson that I continue to practice daily.

Some people stop and smell the roses to remember the important things in life.

Today I remembered what is truly important by stopping and soul gazing with the Lizard Yogi.

Shiva Shakti LOVELIGHTBLISS

unnamedIt was 9 weeks ago on Shivaratri, the Hindu celebration of the Divine Union of the Beloveds that I sent out my clear intent for supreme blessings on my Beloved partnership with all of existence.

On that night I drew this picture of Ardhanarishvara, half Shiva/half Parvati, half woman/half man, the perfect blend of the opposite flows of energy, the Divine Lovers merged as one being.

Since then, there has been…

So much clearing of old ways of being that were holding me back from spiritual expansion..

So much cleansing of suppressed mojo.

This path requires sacrifice because not everyone is devoted to this level of consciousness.

It is a path that requires great devotion and courage.

One has to be willing to shed the old ways like a snake shedding it’s skin.

And lemme tell ya…there are some big ole detox moments at first when you want to cling to the old ways because you are going into unchartered territory.

You have to have Faith Supreme in the Supreme Force of Love and trust that the burning is going to set you free.

But it’s SO worth it because you create so much space to receive high octane LOVELIGHTBLISS.

More than ever, I am truly in awe of Love right now.

Love is the way and Love is the answer.

I am so grateful more than ever that this path of Fearless Radical Love is the way that I happily choose to walk through life.

And this is the truly amazing thing…

The first and foremost and foundational Beloved relationship is totally internal.

It is the Divine Union of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine within.

Just like this picture.

It truly is a state of being that is real.

And…it feels SO good and so right.

The high frequency Love that I am attracting from this internal energetic state of being is so pure and direct and obvious and beautiful.

It reminds me of my first memory (that some people say is not possible and a bunch of malarky but it happened because I was there….mmmmmmmk?).
My first memory was…

Being the egg and my #1 commitment was to allow ONLY THE BEST.
And…
Being the sperm and my #1 commitment was I AM THE ONE.

That’s how I got here.

Being the best that I can be and being the one is the perfect way to describe this Shiva Shakti Beloved Love.

It is the energy that creates life and magic and miracles.

So here I am…
I found everything inside of myself that I have been looking for outside of myself.

And now that I have it inside it is happening in more balanced, harmonious and super sweet ways than ever externally.

Today I am grateful for all of you Fearless Radical Lovers out there who are dancing this dance with me…because it’s a lot more fun to talk and breathe and dance and play with others who are on this path.

Thank you for doing the deep work and raising the bar on what is possible in our relationships with all people, places and things.

Being in right relationship with people that are willing and able (and we are all able if we devote ourselves) to work and play like this is a total turn on, so inspirational and clears the space so that LOVELIGHTBLISS and a whole lotta passion and play can prevail internally and externally on all levels, planes and dimensions.

And let’s remember what Marianne Williamson said:

“The revolution that will save the world is ultimately a personal one.”

It all begins within.

Be the best you can be…which means CHOOSE LOVE!!!!
And…
Be the one.

You are the one that you have been waiting for.

An invitation to LOVE and BE LOVED…

10155574_10152350512998908_6428934978919241033_nAn invitation to LOVE and BE LOVED…

LOVE is the Heart of all Spirituality and BELOVED LOVE is the most evolutionary and advanced path on the planet

Why is intimate relationship such a burning alchemical vessel for growth, healing, and transformation? One of the reasons is that in the mandala of the beloved there is nowhere to hide. All of your early trauma and wounding arose in an interpersonal context and must likewise be unwound within a relational field. Your beloved has appeared as this field, but she has also come promising the end of your world as you have known it.

If you have a partner who knows your early history, who is intimately familiar with your core vulnerabilities, and is compassionately attuned to its unfolding and illumination, you are teetering on the edge of cliff. But it is a cliff of grace. But this grace is on fire. On the one hand, a portal has been opened, your guide has appeared, to mirror to you the wholeness that you are. She will hold you and will relentlessly reveal to you the mysteries of your body, your psyche, your organs, your cells, and your nervous system. What a precious situation.

On the other hand, he is an emissary of the unknown. In his presence, universes come and go; there is no ground, no reference point to lean into; no matter how deeply you look, you find only empty space. Nothing is certain anymore. You are being held, but it is a holding that is unbearably vulnerable and without history. You stand totally unclothed in her presence, unable to fool him like you fool so many others, unable to pretend you have it all together. The beloved has no interest in your holding it all together. She wants all the way inside and will use whatever skillful means she must to find you. She will always push up against that which is unresolved within you. She loves you this much.

The beloved is mad crazy in love with you, but may not fit your historical requirements and ideas about what this actually means, about the true implications of having a beloved in your life. She has appeared as your tour guide into the secret areas of your body. If you follow her, your world will become unraveled, you will be taken behind the scenes where the relative world is being organized. The beloved sees you as you are and this is terrifying. In his presence, you are beheld as the majesty that you are, but this is unbearable. You come face to face with the greatest fear that you’ve ever known, but have never been able to articulate: that you are loved. For when you are truly loved, when you are entirely seen, when you are fully held, it is the end of your world as you know it. You will never be the same. You will never again be able to pretend that you are other than perfect and precious as you are. And this is terrifying.

You long to be loved, to be seen, to be held, but please know that the implications of this are immense; they are cosmic in proportion. To allow yourself to be loved in this way a part of you must die. Everything you thought you weren’t must be surrendered. You must let go of the stories of the unlovable one, the awakened one, the special one, the imperfect one, and the despairing one. Love wishes to reveal your nakedness, to remove your clothing, and to burn away all that is false and less than whole within you. What you are is a raging firestorm of creativity, sensuality, openness, warmth, and kindness.

Love will never stop until you know this.

If you will allow her or him, the beloved will show you the infinite ways that your heart is at risk of breaking open in any moment, and never, ever being put back together again. She will plead with you to let it all go, to fall on the ground, and to allow yourself to fall apart, so she can show you that you were never, ever together to begin with. She will reveal to you that this raw, tender, vulnerable open heart that you feel beating inside you – right here and right now – that this is your gift to the world.

NYC Soul Retrieval

Anne in NYC Spring 2014Spring has sprung in New York City.

And this lady has had many opportunities to get herself into some very fun and wild trouble.

It literally feels like it did when I was living here when I was 18.

The energy of Love creates a powerful attraction pattern.

There is a major Soul retrieval opportunity to do things in a more self-loving, authentic and super positive life affirming way that is of the highest service possible to my True Self and those that I have the pleasure of meeting.

Alas, it’s times like these when I am grateful for a lifetime of hard won lessons, clarity of my greater purpose, clearly defined values, crystaline discernment and a deep unshakeable connection to my true desires and long lasting sustainable intentions and that I choose to stay aligned with who I truly am and why I am truly here no matter what

My Life is my Work of Art

10177375_10152302631113908_8918433687299555440_nMy Life is my Work of Art.
I am walking through this world as a Beauty Giver and a Beauty Receiver.
Everywhere I go and everyone I meet is a Work of Art.
I am grateful to be co-creating Heaven on Earth with all of existence.

Divine Beloved

Shiva ShaktiThank you Great Spirit for manifesting Beloved LOVE everywhere I am and everywhere I go.
Thank you for showing me over and over again that my original blueprint, my deepest Soul’s desire and my true destiny is Beloved LOVE.
I am so grateful to be continually blessed by the high frequency of LOVE and I am deeply devoted to continuously clear the blocks to Love within me so that I can continually receive the great power of LOVE in my life.

On the plane to NYC yesterday I sat across the aisle from an amazing man who I had the most profound connection with.
He is a world renowned stage designer for plays, musicals and operas.
One of his best friends is one of my life long favorite musicians.

I was reading THE CHARGE by Brendon Burchard and he asked, “What’s that book about?” and I told him that it is about Activating the 10 Human Drives that make you feel alive.
He asked, “What inspired him to write that book?”
I told him that Brendon was in a terrible car crash and that as he stood bleeding atop the crumpled hood of his wrecked car he asked himself:
Did I live full on?
Did I love with my whole Heart?
Did I matter?
He realized that the core reason that we exist is to live a fully charged life, to give Love with the entirety of our Hearts and to truly making a positive contribution to the planet and that this is all that truly matters.

At this point my new friend said that he had something very intimate to share with me.
He told me that his wife of 30 years was dying and that soon she would dead.
He said that this was his last trip before she makes her transition.
He told me that he always thought that he would be the first to go.
He told me that he never realized how deeply he loved her until he realized that she was going to die.
He told me how deeply he is going to miss her.
With tears in his eyes he said that he had never been so vulnerable with another human being than he was being with me.
He said that it is very challenging as a man to be this vulnerable with a woman because men are so conditioned to be strong and not show their weakness and show how deeply they love and feel.
He thanked me and told me how much lighter his Heart felt.
And I told him that my Heart deeply needed to hear everything that he was telling me.

It turns out that we both lived on Jane Street in the West Village of New York City at the same time.
I lived at 43 Jane Street and he lived at 101 Jane Street.
He also told me that the sweet Lovers John Lennon and Yoko Ono lived on Jane Street right across the street from us years before we had both lived there.

When the steward came to tell me and my Soul sister Susan that the Captain was treating us to anything we wanted, we ordered champagne just for kicks and giggles.
My new friend said to the steward, “Could you just pretend that I am a very beautiful woman too and that the Captain is sending me complimentary champagne too?”
His wish was granted and we 3 toasted to living a fully charged life, giving our Love full on and making a positive contribution to the planet.
And we also toasted to his beautiful wife and their incredible Love.

And then, just to make sure that I know in the core of my being that I am on the right path…that I am fully aligned with the most powerful force in The Universe…Divine Love…life bestowed more magic and wonder upon us.

We made our way from Times Square down to the Flatiron District for dinner at ABC Kitchen where our taste buds became whirling dervishes in love with every sensual bite of the love infused food.

As we walked into the restaurant there was a window display of the divine Lovers Shiva, his wife Parvati and their son Ganesha, the remover of obstacles.

The woman who took us to our table was named “Nandi”.
Nandi is the gate keeper for Shiva and Parvati.
You cannot access the high vibrational Divine Love between Shiva and Parvati without Nandi’s assistance.

Apparently, we were granted access to the realm of Supreme Divine Love.

As we sat down…

On one side we were sitting next to a couple who recently got engaged on Kauai and we all talked about Love and marriage and weddings.

On our other side we were sitting next to a couple who were passionately making out in between bites during their entire meal. It was hot.

And then, just to make sure that I was getting the mega message of Divine Love, my long time friends and teachers and long time husband/wife/loves/Yogi Yogini dream team who I have not seen forever Ty and Sarah Powers synchronistically walked into the restaurant to visit their beautiful daughter Imani who I have known since she was a child.
Imani works at the restaurant and told us about her great Beloved.

And this morning I discovered that 2 of my dearest dear hearts Peter and Peiter whose marriage I officiated on Kauai and are 2 of the greatest fearless radical Lovers that I know are here in NYC too staying right down the street from us in Times Square.

So life…thank you!

Thank you for sending me all of these amazing reflections of the Divine Love that I am.

I will continue to choose the highest vibrational frequency of Divine Beloved Love over and over and over again because it is the only way to fly.

Love is the greatest evolutionary force available to us and I am so grateful that I am an open and clear conduit for Beloved Love to flow through me and take over my everything.

Great Beloved Love…I belong to you.

Great Beloved Love…I am your faithful servant.

Great Beloved Love…Please work through me.

Great Beloved Love…Please clear me and cleanse me and uplift me and inspire me.

Great Beloved Love…Please continue to lead me and guide me and direct me and protect me in my thoughts, words and deeds on all levels, planes and dimensions of reality.

May we all surrender into the Great Beloved Love that we all truly are.

Countless blessings of LOVELIGHTBLISS to us all <3

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

AND SO IT IS.

Earth Angels of the Sky

sunburstHunted down by our stewardess who was eagerly yearning to give us free upgrades to the best seats in the house…

Graciously greeted by our Captain in line for tea who told us that we are on a very special new plane that is going to wow us with all it’s bells & whistles…

And just now he came to visit us to tell us that all of our beverages of choice are on him today…

Apparently we are being blessed with yet another super high vibration adventure & the Universe is conspiring to make our dreams come true & enlisting everyone as our Earth angels as we collectively co-create Heaven on Earth.

May we all be riding these waves of sublime blessings all day long & always on all levels, planes & dimensions of reality in the friendly skies & on our stunningly beautiful planet.

Life, we love you.
Thank you.

Positivity creates Positivity

GandhiKeep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words.

Mahatma Gandhi

Hold Your Sacred Space

GoddessHold your space, keep your heart open, and believe in the ultimate perfection of all things, no matter how they look to you on the surface.

If you stay with you, what you desire for your Self, what you most require for inner peace and harmony, there is nothing in the world that can disrupt that focus. (Unless of course you allow your Self to be disrupted).

There’s a payoff here that you may not see coming.

The benefits of loving Self unconditionally are beyond anything you can imagine right now.

No one else matters more than you do.

Love you and everyone will love you, or at the very least show you the respect you deserve.

With an open heart, your life is transformed.

Calling in the Condors

Calling in the CondorsA rare of wondrous blessing from the Condors of Big Sur who circled around us flying just above our heads over and over for over 10 minutes. Feeling deeply connected to, loved and supported by Great Spirit ♥

Rare and Wondrous

CondorsWe are in total awe after a rare & wondrous sighting of the condors of Big Sur…

We considered stopping the journey up the coast to check them out but decided to carry on…

And lo & behold they decided to chase after us!

Such an incredible metaphor that we do not need to turn around so that we don’t leave anything behind…if anyone or anything wants to soar to the highest heights, they will rush to find us & rise up to meet us ;-))

As they flew right by our chariot we pulled over & they circled back around soaring right above our heads… not once but 3 times…encircling us over & over again.

We knew that we were being blessed with a supreme blessing & when we read the symbology of the Condor our Spirits truly soared:

Condors prefer to live in the high mountains, to fly in the skies above the cordilleras. They symbolise the highest elevation, above limitations and obstacles. They are, above all, the symbol of the transpersonal; they integrate the wisdom of those who have died, those who have no ego. They are the symbol of spiritual ascension, of communication with the spirits, with what is subtle.

The condor is the symbol of creative power, the incarnation of timeless philosophy; his majestic flight suggests the process of life itself, of creative eternity, whose ever-living works are made up of births and deaths.

The eagle is the symbol of the sun, but the eye of the condor is the sun; it symbolises the hidden light of the great emptiness. It is the master of weather, of thunder and lightning, of wisdom, of new vision, of prophecy, of illumination.

The condor is without doubt the king of the skies, but ultimately he is a servant, a simple gardener, the instrument of the art of renovation, of cleanliness and purification; new productions need new spaces, which are fertilised from the disintegration of the old, of the spirits of the dead. Wisdom, prudence, calm, reflection, discretion, intuition, vision, prophecy, messenger of the divine – these are the attributes of the bird.

High Frequency LOVE and GRATITUDE

Cosmic GoddessLOVE and GRATITUDE are the highest vibrational frequencies in existence and have miraculous powers to uplift, inspire and heal.

Flowing high vibrational LOVE and GRATITUDE towards anyone (including yourself) who has not been doing the deep work of clearing their inner blocks to Love including past hurts, regrets and sadness can oftentimes be a very uncomfortable experience.

It’s a bit like pouring high alkaline green juice into a body that is full of toxins and impurities…

There are going to be some major cleansing reactions that might not feel good at all and you just might want to quit and run back to your old ways of being.

As you raise your vibration with the high frequencies of LOVE and GRATITUDE, be patient with the process.

Trust that little by little the lower frequencies are being cleared, creating space for you to receive and embody greater LOVE and GRATITUDE than you ever imagined.

May your transformational journey into LOVE and GRATITUDE be blessed with ease, grace and harmony .
