LOA: Attracting Kundalini

GOOD Early Afternoon Fellow Readers,

First off I want to touch on where I am at in “May Cause Miracles” if you are wondering. I am still on week 5. Day 31 AGAIN to be exact. I actually had started last week got to Day 34 and then had not read the book for a few days so I decided to start the week all over again this week at Day 29. This week is all about Money and Finances and I KNOW I have huge issues surrounding money, and my fear over money can definitely run my life so I want to really focus well on this week.

Aside from that, I also realized I really have to start writing here more because I feel like I’m having so much more to write now and I’ve tended to skip all together which I don’t want to do. I have B-School that I have been doing and want to write about, my “May Cause Miracles” journey that I want to touch on more often, I did Oprah and Deepak’s meditation challenge that I never spoke about, along with just day-to-day life going on. I never even wrote about my trip to Bali at all. SHAME ON ME!!! I promise I will get to that soon though.

Ok so for today…. if you read my blog then you might know that I am a huge fan the Law of Attraction and being able to co-create your life and experiences. I have studied it and witnessed it again and again over these last few years within myself and others close to me.

If you are not sure what the Law of Attraction is, the basics are that you attract whatever vibrations/energy you put out into the Universe back to you. I have had some fun and testing this recently and it just blows my mind how it has worked. I will share some more stories later but now my recent story has to do with Kundalini yoga, my friend Siri Shakti Kaur, and Mastin Kipp of The Daily Love.

So I first heard of Kundalini yoga via Mastin. He had mentioned it on his blog and how he loved doing it. I had never even heard about it before but after hearing him speak about it, along with some of his other blogger friends,  it started to spark my interest.

A few months ago, I think around December some time, I had reached out to an old friend of mine, Siri Shakti. I saw that she had moved down to Southern California and I was in a moment of wanting to make more friends and start connecting more with like-minded people (those of spiritual path and growth) especially those with kids. I had connected with her through FB and we started writing back and forth. Well suddenly we are talking and she asks me if I ever had tried Kundalini yoga (sign #1) . My mind was a little blown because here I had recently just heard about it and she’s asking me if I had ever tried it. I told her no but  I was interested because of The Daily Love. So she mentioned a place in North Hollywood that she likes to go to and we had tried to plan something towards the end of January before I was going to Bali. Not gonna lie, I did have a slight wonder if it was maybe the place Mastin went to because how AWESOME would that be to try it with him considering he’s one of my biggest inspirations.

During the month of January of cousin Tiara was staying with me during her trip to Los Angeles. During one of her first weekends here we had gone to Agape Spiritual Center for the first time. During the session a random girl had sat next to my cousin and towards the end they started talking about how they wanted to check out this seminar that was being held a few hours later. We were walking out and talking to this girl and she sees this guy she knew and starts talking to him. She introduces him to us and says that he is a Kundalini yoga teacher (sign #2). That is when I finally mentioned that I felt like it was being presented in my path. I go from never hearing about it before to it being brought to my attention more than once now, within a few weeks.

That night I was having Sunday dinner with my fiance’s family and we are talking to his cousin about Bali and we started talking about yoga. I mentioned how I wanted to try Kundalini yoga and ask her if she’s heard of it. She then says that she is a certified teacher of Kundalini which I had never even knew (sign#3). Well 3rd times a charm so I now knew 100% that I must meet with Siri and try it out. This was kind of freaking me out.

Well low and behold Siri and I had to cancel because we were both really busy so we decided it would obviously be best to wait until after my Bali trip. After I came back from Bali I was browsing on The Daily Love and saw that he had created an Events tab. I checked it out and the very next event that was coming up was “Mastin Kipp presents: An Evening with Your Heart” , in Hollywood, where it was going to be a 3 hour night; one hour of Kundalini yoga instructed by Sat Siri Dougherty and 2 hours of a seminar given by Mastin. BAM!!!

I hit up my friend Siri Shakti on Facebook, mentioned to her that she should come with me. I wasn’t sure she’d be able to since it was from 7-10pm and she lived about an hour or so away but she said YES and we both signed up. So just this last Saturday I had connected with my friend Siri, after 9 years of not seeing each other, trying out Kundalini yoga for the FIRST time, and all along side the guy who I had first ever even heard about it (and in my head wanted to try it out with), Mastin Kipp! Annnnd I get to attend one of his seminars while we are at it. Talk about quadruple whammie!

The night was amazing!!! The night started with a small speech by Mastin and a few WONDERFUL original song sung by musician Chris Assaad, contributor to TDL. This guy has such a beautiful voice, the whole time he was singing I was having the chills. Then we had a Kundalini yoga session with Sat Siri Dougherty. This particular Kundalini session had moves that was geared towards us opening the heart chakra so afterwards we went through some “Kipp Heart Therapy” with Mastin where we learned how to talk to our hearts. Distinguishing your mind’s voice from your heart’s voice.

Extremely powerful!!! I was crying, others were crying. There was an energy in this room that was just felt beyond words. I actually ran into someone I had met from B-School a few weeks earlier as well as met two other people there from B-School for the first time. I was going to explain more what the night was about but don’t want this post to get too long so maybe in another post soon. I know I’m a tease!!!

Mastin has another night just like this coming up next month on May 18th. I’m thinking about signing up again. If you live in or around the LA area, I definitely say check it out.

This story was just a small example of how the Law of Attraction has worked in my life. Just in the last week I have played around with an intention in the beginning of the day and seeing how it manifested by the end of the day and it’s been working!!! LOA is real!

I dare you today to think of something small you want to attract, think positively about it all day, and see what comes to you!!! Would love to hear any stories of how it works out for you or how it has worked in the past!!! Until next time,

xoxo,

Believe In Your Dreams and They Can’t Help but Come True!

Soooo I finally met Mastin Kipp, my hero!  Although I havent made a vision board physically I definitely have one in my head and certain things have been implanted so thick that, especially after this one, that they are starting to happen or I KNOW they are going to happen one day. Meeting Mastin Kipp was one of them. Meeting Mastin AND sitting and having a real truth conversation is another. Oh and add on being a part of what he does and TDL to go even further up on the Bucket List. But I’ll take meeting him, being nervous out of my mind that my hands were shaking and I made no eye contact and didn’t ask what I wanted to ask and feeling lame, for what it is… Which is, my visions are coming closer and closer to happening.

The craziest part is thinking about how it came about in a way that I didn’t even realize at the time. I was reading TDL and saw the banner for the seminar, it didn’t cost much money, it was in West Hollywood, I just figured why not make this move towards what you want and go to this seminar. I wasn’t even really thinking about meeting and speaking to Mastin. Seeing him speak was enough for me.

On the way to drop my son off at the babysitter, my boyfriend and I BOTH realized we left our phones at home. Which is rare because we are kinda stuck to them. I realized I had no clue where I was going and was dying without the Navigation on my phone. As we were dropping my son off we asked my friend to look up the address and directions on her phone as we had 15 minutes to be there. Her phone wasnt working at first, then we got directions to the wrong place. Luckily I noticed it before we left because we had directions to Culver City. We then had to look up the correct address and directions and then the traffic said one hour. We left it was 6:50pm and the seminar started at 7:00pm. The traffic was horrible and as it turned 7:00pm all I could do was wince because now not only were we late but we were gonna be really late. While we were driving, there was times where I was feeling like “of course this has to happen to me when it’s something I have really looked forward to” and I felt myself getting really frustrated but also I was stopping myself and breathing and trying to relax and just know I was gonna hear what I needed to hear no matter what time I got there…and that gave me peace! Whats meant to be will be, right?

Being able to catch myself thinking out of control and gain some control back, even if just for a moment at a time, is something HUGE in my head. It’s the small steps like these we have to give ourselves credit for. These are the small steps that are going to lead us to the top of the mountain, and it starts with recognition and gratitude from ourselves first. We don’t change over night, this is ongoing work, but with each little step life gets better and better. Maybe not easy, especially at first, but indeed better.

And guess what, I walked in and Mastin was JUST introduced and I hadn’t missed his turn at all. I missed Gabrielle speak her story but maybe it wasn’t my time for her yet. (I bought all her books though, I’ll let you know how they are). Just like I had told myself a better story in the car while in traffic… I am telling myself a better story about this meeting. I am grateful for the opportunity, the inspiration, and I am CHOOSING to see it in a better light. This switch in perception alone gives me that much more juice to keep the momentum going. That’s the crazy part, the positive feeds us ten times more yet some reason we still jump to the negative because it’s what we are used to even though it doesn’t make us feel good.

The Daily Love has absolutely changed my life and I will never be the same because of it. My brain has transformed in the most inspirational way. Recently everything has been making more sense, after 4 years of learning what I have learned, I KNOW that I am doing nothing but growing and working towards my purpose and that gives me HUGE fulfillment. I want to put myself out here, be vulnerable, express my fears and share my trials and in turn inspire others the way in which I have been inspired.

I have seen TDL grow from JUST a Twitter site, to a website, to only Mastin posting a couple of times a week, to every day, to a couple of people a week guest blogging, to what it is today. From him not having a relationship in 7 years to being in a beautiful relationship with a beautiful girl. From being a guy that was sleeping on couches to a guy that has met and even inspired Oprah. I have witnessed his life transform before me as a result of the truth he speaks and can’t help but want to test the formula on my life.

After meeting Mastin, My boyfriend asked “so are you satisfied”. I looked at him and said “NO!” and I went in to all the reason I just screwed up that chance. I felt like I didn’t show confidence, I probably sounded lame, I didn’t catch his attention. All these negative stories about myself. Although I still felt very much inspired, I couldn’t help but think about how I just might not be good enough to do what he does and get where he’s at. Today I was telling my friend the story and she said “All your visions are coming true”. I suddenly thought “Yea, you’re right!”.

 Yes I can think of all the ways “I messed up” when it comes to this seminar or I can step back  and, like my friend said, “I’m getting closer to my dreams”. It doesn’t matter how I thought I appeared but the fact that we met and spoke is a step. When you believe in your dreams, they can’t help but come true!!!

I wasn’t lying Mastin, I’ll see you again sometime!
