Kali Energy~ Destruction, Chaos, …Beauty? Abundance and Spiritual Responsibility

 

14-05 Goddess Crystal Grid, Kali

It has been 6 months since the fire of our home. I cannot believe all the change that has happened in the last 6 months. This is the last Full Moon I will spend at our rental house.
Kali is the energy of the Goddess, she comes in the form of Destruction and Chaos, for those of you who have no idea what this is, please stay open minded. For those of you who have studied and experienced archetypes, follow along. You will get this…
She is also creatress of Beauty from the fire. I have seen this first person over this last period. It has been painfully beautiful. I was scared to even talk about Kali for months after Labor Day, even until this week.
I have used Kali Mudra in yoga and taught for years to ‘Burn out whatever no longer serves you in your life!’ I had no NO idea what this really meant. Until I experienced it.
Then as I realized, Kali is fierce, she is viscious, she is super scary. And my human-ness needs taming and controlling!!!! I cant go crying to my momma, she is not on this Earth plane. So therefore I behave like a brat and get what I want at no consideration for others that are close to me. I can get out of hand like a roaring fire! I need this energy in my life to keep me in line! This is the energy of a strict mother and she damn well knows how to WHIP MY ASS.

(See photo above, in a Crystal Grid at a Goddess Circle in early 2014 Goddess Card Kali Ma was turned up at the center, long before any of her evidence showed up in my life).

I need this from Kali Ma, especially in the area of financial responsibility. We have been gifted with tens of hundreds of thousands of dollars through this process of recovering this devastatingly huge loss, and I am responsible for taking care of directing these funds to be allotted in the proper places. It is a huge responsibility, and for this lesson I am becoming strictly obedient. With this lesson, I will continue to Receive (the energy of Lakshmi, the Goddess of Abundance).

14-05 Eka Pada Danurasana Lisa Ware

Back in April of 2014 I finished about 35 to 40 hours of my tattoo with an 8 hour session in a row with Melissa Southern before she moved. Little did I know that was only the beginning...

The intensity of that session released some pent up emotions that I havenever been able to let go of since the passing of my mother in May of 2008. I thought THAT session was intense. Then the next month Duane Farrell, my dad, was diagnosed with the big C. 5 months later is when our house burned. 2014 was the year of Transformation. I’m still grateful for my connecting to the Great Spirit and the all knowingness that All is Well in my World. This knowing and connecting to something much greater has been and still is what is being me and my family through. I do appreciate your love and light and your intent of lifting us up. Blessings. Namaste. #letitgo

I know Creator has MUCH more abundance in store for me, my family, my team and my students, my followers and supporters. You are receiving, too. This is only the beginning my friends! Hang on for the ride! With these blessings I fully intent to pay this forward in giving my tools and gifts:
Yoga
Mediatation
Reiki
Nutrition
Teacher Training

And with these tools WE are SHiFTING the planet to a higher vibration! I am allowing many obstacles to be removed (the energy of Ganesha). Through this process of not having the responsibility of having a studio open I have rediscovered my personal yoga and meditation practice. I have FULLY launched my nutriton biz onto a whole nother level and have actually been home to cook dinners for my family. (My 16 year old boy really appreciates this!) I have been present daily for my family, but not nearly enough, as preoccupation of building this house is a FULL TIME JOB!
Meanwhile. I am totally relaunching our website this month, hosting a Reiki 1 and 2 Attunement and Workshop,
AND
with my OMazing Yoga Teacher Trainees on my BETA Online 200 Streaming Yoga Teacher Training, we have rewritten and edited my manual for publication, added 3 modules of material for future trainees and are almost 2/3 finished with recording the 200 hours!
To add another huge focus, my father is still in a rehab center and is not healing as quickly as we would have hoped from his esophogeal cancer surgery.  He is very short of oxygen due to lack of red blood cells. Please continue to pray for Duane, my daddy. He is finally eating, and the rehab dietician director makes him his fave meals + blends him 2-3 Juice Plus Complete whole food shakes a day and adds in 3 caps of Orchard, Garden and Vineyard food powder into each one. So at least he is getting fed! We just want him to get stronger so he can get out of bed! He said that the bed feels like a prison. =-(

For those of you who would love to take a yoga class or meditation I have added a new space on my website to take FREE audio classes.  More classes added monthly. Also, with the website relaunch this month all Y4L members will receivea special password  for a private page to take other free classes and many other online benefits!

We have had 2 weeks of freezing weather, there were many days that the contractors could not come in. to work on the house. We are very ready to get all the final details completed in our house build. We are awaiting the city to give us the certificate of occupancy on the house! This week we have finished our ‘spa master bath’ tile, installed our marble countertops, today he set all of the sinks and all the electrical is done, so now the heat and air is going to be finished.
We are set to move in to our home over Spring Break on Wednesday this week!!!!

Home and Cabin
The Y4L Cabin is finally scheduled to turn on the power Monday or Tuesday! Next, our guys will install the walls, ceiling and put up the Far Infrared heat panels. We are looking at completion by 3/31!

*** I know how you may feel if you have been waiting for classes for the last 2 months. Without your support I could not have afforded the luxury of taking time to build this cabin. We have so much appreiation for all of you who have kept your membership and we have some special things we are doing for you, to give back.***
We currently are also looking CLOSELY at the City of Ovilla guidelines to make sure that they will not do anything to keep us from having a biz (our yoga practice) on my land. So I have hired some legal help in the form of pro bono friends who are really smart and know these things! Please hold space that EXACTLY what Spirit wants to unfold will do so in a timely manner and for the highest good of all beings.

Happy Valentines Day, Cabin Studio is Almost Ready

Heart Conscious Cover Photo

Father O’Gara, “is that there comes a time where you have to lay your life upon the line for what you believe.

The studio is coming along and so is the house! I picked out a beautiful white marble for the countertops today as well as a piece of reclaimed semi trailer plank for the bar on the island. The finishes are finally here, meaning there is light at the end of the tunnel! 

My dad is in a rahab center after his esphogeal surgery and he is finally making progress. It is a month since the surgery and he is beginning to eat 5 small meals a day and gain strength. 

In honor of him I am installing everything in the house and studio fully handicap accessable as well as building a wheel chair ramp to the studio entrance. 

SO, the HVAC goes in and then walls go up next week ….

Anyone local want to come help paint the cabin interior? Email Lisa instructor@yoga4love.net

How do I log into Muuyu classes online?

WHAT DEVICE CAN I USE FOR MUUYU?

Muuyu will work on any laptop, desktop computer, or television that has a built-in webcam or an external camera attached to it. For now, Muuyu is not supported on portable devices like iPads, tablets, and smart phones as they can not install plugins.

Our system works with Mac OS and Windows operating systems and for the smoothest experience, we recommend using the Google Chrome browser but others work fine too.

HOW DO I INSTALL THE MUUYU PLUGIN?

The Muuyu plugin is a simple addition to our software that lets us optimize our platform for you and your interactive experience. It must be installed for our classes to work on your device, but the good news is, it’s really simple to do!

Just click on Check My Device and it’s done in a matter of moments – quick and painless :) Before you take your first class on Muuyu, please remember to click this button and get the plugin installed – it’s super important.

Depending on your browser and device, it could be downloaded to your desktop or downloads folder. Open the plugin file that appears and click to install. If you need to search for the file on your device, it will be called Muuyu.dmg (for Mac users) or Muuyu.exe (for PC users).

HOW DO I PREVENT MY SCREEN FROM DIMMING DURING CLASS?

If you have a Mac, click on the Apple icon on the top left hand side of your screen. Go to system preferences and then energy saver with the lightbulb icon. Here you have the option to adjust the settings to decide when your laptop goes to the sleep mode.

An app called Caffeine is available to download for Mac users also. It is a small program that installs a coffee cup icon in the right-hand side of your menu bar. Click the icon to prevent your Mac from automatically going to sleep, dimming the screen, or starting screen savers. Click it again to go back to the original settings.

If you have a PC, go to your computer’s Control Panel. Click on Hardware and Sound, then on Power Options, and finally Edit Plan Settings. You can then choose from a list of options for when you want to let your screen dim.

MEDITATION MONDAYS HERE

ART SAVES LIVES STARTS FRESH AND WANTS TO JUST SHARE

To start off the New Year I wanted to share what I read this morning and how meditation works for me in this new life.

Coffee with The Buddha by Joan Duncan Oliver #waashere

How will meditation help me handle situations in everyday life?

Meditation trains the mind to slow down and observe. It opens up an inner spaciousness in which you can watch thoughts and feelings as they arise and pass away.  When you understand that moods, bodily sensations, and thoughts-however compelling-don’t last, you become less reactive, reducing the likelihood of outbursts or rash behavior.

A balanced mind has choices. Above all, mindfulness keeps you in the present moment. Instead of dwelling on past regrets or future speculation, you can attend fully to what’s in front of you, here and now.

Imagine you notice a huge crowd of people gathered around a famous movie star. Suddenly someone hands you a bowl filled to the brim with oil and says, “You have to carry this on your head through the crowd, and if you spill a drop, we’ll cut off your head.”  What do you think -will your attention be on the movie star or on the bowl of oil?

The oil, of course. But isn’t it sometimes better not to pay attention to what’s in front of you? If I’m doing something boring or routine like washing dishes or raking leaves, why shouldn’t I let my mind wander and use the time productively-to ponder a problem I need to solve, say or to hatch a creative project?

Is letting your mind wander really a productive use of your time? If you constantly chase after distant phantoms to avoid feelings or boredom or dislike, how will you ever learn to deal with the reality of displeasing mind states- or discover that acknowledging them is the first step to reducing discomfort?  When you stay in the moment mindfully, any number of things can happen. For ones, you’re less likely to break a dish or trip over your rake-harm yourself or others. For another, you’ll finish the task faster with better results.

Above all, you’ll see your habitual responses clearly, giving you an opportunity to change your attitudes and behavior.  Become curious about what you don’t like or understand, and as you observe it, watch your feeling about it change.

Manifesting Our Dreams ~Yoga 4 Love Cabin Studio Coming Winter 2015!

Continued from the last blog…

http://www.yoga4love.net/recap-2014-year-chaos-beauty-letting-go-energy-kali-phoenix/

Yoga 4 Love Cabin Studio

July~August were a whirlwind. I held the 8th annual DFW Free Day of Yoga, for the 7th year and then retired from the committee. I went to all my dads chemo, and doctor appointments with him and helped him learn to eat cleanly.
September 1 is the day of Free Day of Yoga and I was at the studio when my house caught on fire. My husband, kids and pets were home. It was tragic to lose our home, and my kitten, but I am forever grateful that my family was not sleeping and the kids and 2 dogs  all got out safely. I rescued my cat, Cleo, with the pet mask. We lost Ming, the Siamese kitten in the smoke.

October~ 
I have spent the entire fall working with contractors and learning how to contract a home. We have had a really positive experience with State Farm. Many friends and yoga students donated clothing, money and items to get us by. We are currently living in a lease home til our house is built. Finally the process began moving forward and the entire house was demoed down to the exterior walls and slab. I went to Memphis for a Leadership conference. Had to miss a lot being on the phone with the insurance and contractors, but it was nice to get away and the hubby is so awesome to take over the duties at the house and studio.
November~ The house is finally beginning to take shape. A great friend, who is an architect, and I had created a DREAM HOME plan many years ago and tabled these plans due to the expense. When the fire happened we again opened these plans. The Dream Home required all the structural walls and roof to be removed except the back bedrooms. These walls and roof are the EXACT SAME Walls and roof that were demoed with the fire. Literally down to the plans. Now, how can I even question that there is a Master governing these plans… and my life!
December~ I found a publisher for my book, 5 Minutes 4 Positive Change, and my cover artist is working on the image for the book! Christmas was so different not in my home at the waterfall, and losing all the sentimentals was really difficult, but our family is so blessed. The current studio is needing to move~ I can feel it with my entire being and my students are willing to go wherever I go. It is too big, too expensive and so wasteful as it sits empty 90% of the week. I was not sure where or how… until Rich and I found the cabin! It will be delivered fully assembled in mid January! I already have the flooring, our construction crew has already ran the plumbing and the electrical goes in next week! The timing is impeccible. We are so excited. Classes will begin soon, and our first retreat will be in June! ( www.yoga4love.net/goddess-retreats )
January 2015~ So, yesterday I went to the property like I do daily. This time I walked into the brand new back door and looked at my dream house surrounding me. It is real. We manifested this! It is what Spirit wants with this magical property. I cried in gratitude. This time it was different, I cried for what is coming, not for what I lost. I am so thankful to be on this path of healing, yoga, conscious and sustainable living.

I am so happy OUR paths have crossed in some way over this lifetime. You mean so much to me as a teacher, neighbor, reader, community member and friend.
The Infinite Light that Shines within me
Honors
Loves and
Respects
The Infinite Light that Shines within you. In that we are One.
NAMASTE.
May this year bring you all that YOU manifest, more than your MIND can conceive, but exactly what your HEART desires.

Lisa
