My beautiful new piece of lapis. Triple AAA grade from Afghanistan. Since bringing her home after a very long layby, I've been dreaming about lapis and wearing this colour so so much. Lapis is a powerful healer for opening us up to trusting our highest wisdom. Activating our third eye and bringing us back to truth. Are you listening to your souls voice? #crystalcastle @crystalcastlebyronbay #crystalhealing #yogini #healing #heartopening #peace #wisdom #ceremony
Teaching my beautiful man his first chant on the harmonium. Maha mantra of course... Combined with whale song... Hare Krishna! Powerful heart opener... #mantra #harekrishna @themantraroom #whalesong #whalestrip #soundhealing #inlove

Powerful full moon energy today. Was walking the lighthouse track at the point of the lunar eclipse. Lots of breaching whales. Here is some info on the energy of today. Thanks to @rainbow_rising_healing "This full moon holds a lot more power and significance many of us may not know. Not only are we graced with the presence of a Harvest Moon, Super Moon and a Blood Moon but all of these to coincide with a Lunar Eclipse. This powerful moon aligning in Aries is calling us to let go of old behavioural patterns; releasing tendencies to react to situations with anger, aggression and dominance. By letting go of these old trends and actions, this gives rise to a new way of being and thinking. Go within and find your inner flame, allowing it to support you and shine your way." #fullmoon #lunareclipse #yogini #byronyoga #byronbay #lightshining #lighthousewalk #whales
Let your own light shine and it unconsciously gives others permission to do the same. Marianne Williamson is such an incredible teacher. Let's shine our lights! #lightshining #yogini #yogaonthewater #yogaeverydamnday #yoga #mantra @mariAnnewilliamson
World peace day blessings. Big day of gratitude to where my energy was today. Healing sessions, workshops and yoga classes. @crystalcastlebyronbay today we had an amazing inspiring speaker James Aspey who authentically shared his journey of 365 days of silence for animal rights activism. Really entertaining and inspiring guy. I've been a vegetarian my whole life and have shamefully chosen to be ignorant to what animals go through in order to give us cheese. And I LOVE cheese. Today it made me really look at veganism from a very insightful perspective where I didn't feel pressured to follow a certain belief- I was just given facts and watched how that settled in my body. Then I shared the peace for the plants meditation with the crystal bowls. It was such a blessing to honor Mother Earths offerings on this day! Let's trust that our prayers for peace are being heard.... #gratitude #yoga #yogini #healing #soundhealing #crystalbowls #crystalcastle #bliss #peace
Spring equinox celebrations. A potent time to bring the inward visions into the outward world. Transforming spirit into matter. Planting seeds. A time of balance and manifestation. Yoga tonight @yogapeace Mullum 5.30-7pm and @yogabynature brunswick tomorrow 6-7.30pm all exploring these inspiring themes of yoga!! #yogini #yogabynature #yogini #yogaeverydamnday #springsessions #equinox #ceremony
"This is a celebration of balance and union between the Light and Dark cycles of the year, between the Sun and the Moon, between Yang and Yin, Fire and Water. From this dynamic joining of opposites comes new life, transformation and manifestation.
From here to the Midsummer Solstice, the days will lengthen as the Sun returns, bring increasing strength and warmth, and the nights will shorten. This is the beginning of the growing period, the season of manifestation. It is a time for unions of all kinds, for fertility and birth. Out of Union comes new life. This is the natural alchemy of Union inherent in all Life on Earth at this time.
Here at the Spring Equinox, the alchemy lies in the transference of energy from the inside to the outside, from Spirit into Matter. What is within is flowing towards manifestation. Across the wheel at the Autumn Equinox the alchemy lies in the transference of energy from Matter into Spirit, taking the essence of what we have manifested back inside for assimilation and understanding. This delightful balance of our inner and outer worlds flows through our lives as each Equinox helps us to be aware of the natural movement and direction of the cycle.
............The alchemy of the Spring Equinox represents the joining of opposite forces to create a blending of energy which is alive, potent and expansive. I use this time for balance, and for bringing together what I wish to unite. Whatever I bring to my thoughts will grow- my love, my wishes, my intentions, my visions, my hopes and dreams. Whatever I give my energy to will grow, so I consciously give life to the seeds I have been nurturing through the winter and early spring.
I am aware of movement from within to without, aware of the energy surge that propels life forward into the new growth cycle and I hold on to my links to the Spirit Realms. I consciously unite my spiritual journey with my daily life as I move forward into the expansive growth cycle, so that I bring Spirit to the Fertile Force of manifestation."
