Om Shanti Om – Invoking Peace and Love through Mantra

“A mantra is not just something to chant. It is not chanting. A mantra is something to let sink deep in your being, just as roots go deep into the earth. The deeper the roots go into the earth, the higher the tree will go into the sky.” – Osho The past week (past month, past year) in the USA (in the world) has been emotional, heart-wrenching, confusing, rage inducing, and anything but peaceful. We have […] Read more »

Bhakti is the Honey of My Soul – Govinda Jaya Jaya Mantra #JuneSwoon

Mantras have this magical way of weaving into all levels of consciousness. I chant specific mantras usually in the morning, but they fill my day, playing in the background and I hum and chant along as I work. Ganesha flows into Kwan Yin who shifts and sparkles into Om Tare and then Vishnu and Lakshmi’s love is playing which may next be wild calls to Kali. I started this post calling it dreams of Radha and […] Read more »

Life With Goddess: Kali Is My Mentor {Kim Hageman}

I keep the Goddess close. I wear a Kali skull mala as a bracelet. When I am frustrated or angry, I take a minute, breath deep and “Kali Ma” my way around the mala. Sometimes, a few beads will suffice. Sometimes, more. Many more. Life just goes that way and having the Goddess to lean on is such a relief. I never feel alone. When I am beating myself up, picking my flaws out one […] Read more »

The tiny island is called Putuo Shan, or holy mountain, and is dedicated to Kwan Yin. It has been a pilgrimage site for hundreds of years, a place where people come to visit the many temples and sea caves, hoping to receive the bodhisattva’s blessing and even to have a vision […] Read more »

Ways to Energize or Start a Mantra Practice #MantraMonday {Kimberly F. Moore}

Mantras are a part of my mornings and anytime prayers and meditation. They weave through my day, subconsciously spreading the light with each chant. It is said that you do not have to know the mantra or actually chant it for the benefits to activate. Just listen and BE in the consciousness of peace, healing, and love. Tune in and let the words wash over you. Let them ring out to the Universe and become […] Read more »

Opening to Divine Love with the Goddess Radha {Priestess Brandi Auset}

Radha is the personification of love between humanity and God, as well as between woman and man.  She is the loyal devotee and celestial wife of the god Krishna.  Radha teaches the joys of affection, faith, and unwavering devotion to the self, and divinity.     (text from Brandi Auset, The Goddess Guide) The energy of Radha is present whenever we feel passionate love, and the desire to unite (either physically, mentally, or spirituality) with our […] Read more »

Cosmic Initiations and Setting Super Solar Eclipse Soaked New Moon Intentions

A spiritual teacher once told me that receiving an initiation, physical, spiritual, or both, was like driving full speed towards your karma. While you are basking in the glow of next level spiritual understanding, there is also the potential of feeling like a crash test dummy in your own life while the karma and experience settles. I feel the same way about eclipse seasons and some retrogrades. Depending on where they hit in your chart, […] Read more »
