In this season of gratitude, we have the opportunity to tune-in to and focus on what it is we are truly grateful for. The minute you make up your mind to be appreciative, you send a message to the cells in your body and they respond to it; going to work to increase your energy, health, vibrancy and the level of your emotions.
Gratitude links the emotional body to the heart and thus to the soul. The emotional body is a restless, constantly vibrating flow of energy around you. When you say thanks, appreciate your life and EVERYTHING in it, the pattern of energy that represents your emotional body begins to rearrange itself into a higher and finer vibration.
Your emotions are the most magnetic part of you when it comes to attracting events, people, and objects. The calmer and more detached you are, the easier it is to have what you want.
The more peaceful and serene you are, the more easily you can focus on your higher being and the more you attract what you really want.
In this time of rapid increases in the speed of information updates, communicative capabilities, and fast approaching HOLIDAYS! it seems more is being demanded of us each moment …. it often seems we need ten bodies just to keep up!
the kundalini yoga I practice teaches that we have not just one body – we have . . . guess how many . . . TEN!
In addition to the physical body, we have three mental bodies and six energy bodies. You can visualize your various bodies as layers of clothing, the physical body being the overcoat you wear for a lifetime.
When all ten bodies are under your direction, it produces a state of integrated support — a sense you don’t have to do it all on your own and a consciousness that allows you to move gracefully through difficult situations.

Blazing passion is real power. It is the ying (feminine) and the yang (masculine) coming together. Passion can create anything you want and inspire you to accomplish the impossible.
Passion will move mountains and bring success.
Passion is the energy blend of containment (ying) and force (yang) that results in a fire-building cosmic dance of creation.
Passion is the on-going implementation of your business (the container for your desire) from a space of still mind, penetrated with the force of conscious action.
Un-stilled mind will always think in terms of purpose, profit, and utility. Mind acting without pause will be aggressive and full of activity. When mind is stilled thru meditation, activity will disappear and action will appear –and there is a great difference between the two. Activity has utility; conscious action becomes pure joy, pure beauty. You act not because something has to be achieved; you act because action is a joy, a dance. You act because you are so full of energy.
And all your joyful dancing cannot but result in a blazing fire of fulfilling abundance.
Success in business can and will take on a life of it’s own and begin to run us –we may, for example, start to live by the measures of others or shoot for goals and targets without examining unexpected collateral damage.
Keep your ego in check!! Once in a while, drag yourself around by the hair and give yourself a good talking to –hold yourself upside down and shake all the nonsense out – fan the flameof loving connection.
Tired of Speaking Sweetly ~ Hafiz
Love wants to reach out and manhandle us,
Break all our teacup talk of God.
If you had the courage and
Could give the Beloved His choice, some nights,
He would just drag you around the room
By your hair,
Ripping from your grip all those toys in the world
That bring you no joy.
Love sometimes gets tired of speaking sweetly
And wants to rip to shreds
All your erroneous notions of truth
That make you fight within yourself, dear one,
And with others,
Causing the world to weep
On too many fine days.
God wants to manhandle us,
Lock us inside of a tiny room with Himself
And practice His dropkick.
The Beloved sometimes wants
To do us a great favor:
Hold us upside down
And shake all the nonsense out.
But when we hear
He is in such a “playful drunken mood”
Most everyone I know
Quickly packs their bags and hightails it
Out of town.
