It's easy to forget that we are all perfect in our own design. Sometimes we muck it up with habits and choices that do not serve us.

Find Stillness

What doesn’t change?

The Practice:
Find stillness.

Why?

Things keep changing. The clock ticks, the day unfolds, trees grow, leaves turn brown, hair turns gray, children grow up and leave home, attention skitters from this to that, the cookie is delicious but then it’s all gone, you’re mad about something for a while and then get over it, consciousness streams on and on and on.

Many changes are certainly good. Most people are glad to put middle school behind them. I’m still happy about shifting thirty years ago from single to married. Painkillers, flush toilets, and the internet seem like pretty good ideas. It’s lovely to watch grass waving in the wind or a river passing. Fundamentally, if there were no change, nothing could happen, reality would be frozen forever. I once asked my friend Tom what he thought God was and he said “possibility.”

Cord Cutting Ritual To Reclaim Your Energy!

Some experiences and moments in our lives seem to just stick to us like dirty gum on the bottom of our shoe. 

If you’ve ever had an ex you just couldn’t get over, a fight you couldn’t get out of your head, or an experience or resentment that has stayed with you for years, you know what I mean. 

Sometimes we become energetically tied to another person or a situation from our past, and we have to find a way to reclaim our energy and regain our sense of sovereignty. A cord cutting ritual is the perfect way to do just that. 

When you know you’re ready to release, but the old pain, old thoughts, or old patterns keep haunting your mind, and still feel real in your body, these rituals can offer you some freedom. They will help you bring your energy back to yourself and finally move on for good. 

Why we get stuck with old memories or resentments 

It’s natural that certain experiences or people stick with us and are hard to shake. Some relationships transform us and make us who we are, certain memories mark pivotal moments, and some experiences become part of the way we define ourselves.

How Meditation Helps Shift Your Energy and Raise Your Vibration

Meditation is often understood as learning how to “not think”, but many find that they quickly lose focus after just a few minutes (or seconds) of trying.

However, when done correctly and intentionally, meditation can have a great deal more power and potential than simply emptying your mind. The practice of meditation can change your energy, shift your frequency, and act as an empowering spiritual reset.

In this post, you’ll learn what your “frequency” is, how it influences your emotions, and what you can do to turn meditation into a life-changing practice that isn’t just about counting your breaths and closing your eyes.

As a result, you’ll learn how to raise your vibration more easily, more consistently, and with more control so you can welcome each day with more confidence, calm, and clarity!

Think, Move and Act from Peace.

Tapping into the truth has the power to not only transform you, but it will also transform the world. So many of you have a hard time with what’s going on in the world, and yet you participate in it. Your participation is at the level of your pain – emotional pain specifically. 

The illusion, or suffering, requires the recycling of emotional pain through the human experience. The very second you become aware of the fact that you are contributing unconsciously to the emotional pain in the world that is the root cause of suffering, you stop. Life then begins to show you where you still have this emotional pain in your vibrational system, specifically in your chakras. 

As you begin to give this emotional pain your attention in your awareness, when life happens, it begins to transform. However, the commitment you have to make in order for it to transform, is to think, move and act from peace.

How to Create a Peaceful Place for Meditation

Meditation offers an array of benefits for your body, mind and spirit. Enthusiasts claim the practice can do anything from easing chronic pain to helping you touch divinity.

However, you need an appropriate location to spread out your mat. Here are five steps to creating a peaceful place for meditation.

1. Find a Quiet Place

It isn’t always easy to carve out a space to hear yourself think. The problem compounds if you share an apartment with noisy roommates or have several littles making nonstop pitter-patter with their little feet. However, you can get creative even in a studio by insulating an area to find your zen.

The Restoration of Safety Within You

As with all things in duality, we have a very outward focused way of being as it relates to energy. You might say you feel a certain way because of “that person”. The truth is you don’t feel that way because of that person, you feel that way because you have an infinite power station inside of you that’s just been turned on. The switch just got flicked on and you are now generating your own energy, you are connected to your own energy. All of the biological phenomena required to facilitate the evolution of you, your brain, is now in flow. 

But what is that energy? It’s the sexual energy, the sacred creative potential of the universe and it’s ascending just as you are ascending. As that energy flows upward, it starts to nurture and nourish every chakra and eventually moves up to the top of the brain and activates all of the dormant centers in your brain. We’ve heard that we don’t use 97% of our brain, give or take, and guess what, you can now activate that 97% of your brain.

A Camino: Firewalk and Life Streaming

When I first heard the diagnosis “breast cancer,” I was lost in shock and fear. How could this happen in my life? To me?! After a few days, I gradually was able to re-center in the peace within me, to remember that everything that happens in my life is part of a soul plan that I was part of designing before my birth. Nothing is a coincidence, and everything is connected to everything else. I am one soul in one lifetime on one planet. Yet I am also part of the entire fabric of being in the universe. Sometimes it takes loss or crisis in our lives to fully realize this. When things fall away or apart, the long view becomes more visible.

The Wow of Being Human

At some point, we need to get to a place where we realize how magical life is. It takes your breath away. This morning I saw the sunrise and in that moment nothing else mattered. It was one of those WOW moments. My life wasn’t being questioned, no part of my existence was in the balance, I was just one with the sunrise, the emerging sunlight. It felt so good to be free of the cognitive burden of needing to understand or to figure it out.  

In that sunrise, everything just makes sense. I want to live my remaining days in the wow, to remain in the wow of being human. 

To live in the wow has been very challenging for so many of you. It’s time to align with this being human thing, so fully that there is no longer a need to understand it. We weave a story that we need to weave in order to reconcile the fact we are on a blue planet, spinning in an infinite universe.

What Belief Do I Serve?

We generally define ourselves by appearance, personality, dress, role, the car we drive, relationships, etc... However, all of this can change in an instant!  Our sense of self can be influenced by what people say, the situations around us and the problems we face. What is it then that defines who we are, and do we really know anything about ourselves?

Much of our insecurity in the world is a result of limiting beliefs which we hold. During this pandemic we are being stretched to go beyond our labels and identities, which for many, have been a distraction from the recognition of the real essence of the self. We are now internally searching more than ever for spiritual meaning and truth.

An Unconditional Relationship with Yourself

As human beings, we have a compartmentalized hierarchical relationship with ourselves. That means that certain aspects of ourselves are okay and other aspects of us are not. 

In the context of evolution, by virtue that you are a human being, you are here to be all of it. You can’t make the choice to be human and then fundamentally disregard fifty percent of the human equation. It defeats the purpose of why you came in the first place. It would be like going to Disney World and hating Mickey Mouse!!

Secrets to Uplifting Your Spirit Everyday

Spirituality. Wellness. Self-care. Meditation.
We hear a lot of buzz on these topics these days.
But what and why? What’s the point?
“Why are so many people into meditation and spirituality these days anyway?"

Over the years, I have come to understand that there are two categories of people. Some are deliberately seeking wellness and self-care through meditation and/or spirituality and their thirst leads them to the path.

Still others like me, just happen to bump into someone or something which leads them on the path to embracing meditation and spirituality.

I was 23 years old, when I started along my path to finding my own spiritual self and realized that this was what was missing in my life.

It’s like those moments when you’re busy, so busy that you forget to hydrate, and suddenly someone hands you a glass of cold water, and you realize, “Oh yeah! This is what I need.”

Why “Spiritualize?” What’s “Spiritualizing” anyway?

“Spiritualizing” is the act of uplifting the spirit. But what are spirits?

Okay, Bring on the Crisis

Somehow in this world of crisis, all people want to talk about is crisis. We are all forever transformed as a result of the crisis we have gone through. I am sharing this with you because nobody would intentionally welcome a crisis in their lives. Nobody would intentionally say “Okay, bring on the crisis.” 

But I have to tell you there is such a gift available to all of us right now, through the pandemic, with everything we are going through in the world . . . it’s such a blessing. In the welcoming of a crisis, it puts you in the redefinition of yourself.

I like who I am now, especially after how life reduced me to my knees. I like this version of me. As I get older, I appreciate this version of being Panache Desai more and more. And there is an amazing freedom that comes along with having navigated my way through a crisis. Things aren’t such a big deal anymore. Having lived through a hurricane, and a child who almost died, and helping my wife with her health issues, I realize we are so blessed to have gone through these things.

Living with the Unknown

Nothing is definitively known, ever. That’s why Native Americans, in their timeless wisdom, have called life the “Great Mystery.” No matter what scientists do to try to break the code—send vehicles to Mars, create life in a test tube, photograph black holes in space—the puzzle of human existence and life and death is never really solved. Any “knowledge” we come to as a species is a shifting illusion that changes with the years and with those who are “knowing.” That’s the realm of science and the mind—and belief systems.

Silencing The Monkey Mind!

In today’s world, we are exposed to more stimulation and mental input than our systems are designed to handle. Between social media and the constant news stream of suffering and turmoil, it can feel confusing to know where to place our attention. It’s especially difficult for people who want to help but end up feeling helpless. 

Reminders of the pandemic, environmental emergencies, politics, and devastating world events pile on to our generally full and busy lives –  it’s no wonder so many of us are struggling with anxiety and overwhelm! Fight – Flight – Freeze seems to be on all the time and it’s accompanied by an autopilot stream of chattering thoughts and ideas limited to searching for potential threats. 

None of this is going away any time soon, so we need to learn strategies that will help us become more resilient and able to manage our inner lives without bypassing what is going on in the world. One way to help manage the inner anxiety loop is to learn how to experience a sense of inner peace, groundedness, and calm. You can learn how to reclaim your mental spaciousness by quieting the “monkey mind!” 

But in a world that not only overstimulates us, but that often encourages us to rely primarily on our minds over our other senses and ways of knowing, it can often feel impossible to reach a state of true inner calm and peacefulness – especially when challenges are beckoning for solutions. That said, we all need to take breaks to put our oxygen masks on in order to manage at the very least. 

In order to relieve the stress of your daily life by keeping a calm mind, you can learn practices that help you come back to your center and release your unwanted thoughts when they feel like they’re running the show. 

Why is it important to have a calm mind?

Life Is Responding To What’s Happening

As you evolve, you stop valuing all the stuff that doesn’t matter anymore and you start valuing the stuff that does. It’s how you feel everyday that matters. Do you want to keep revisiting your past thinking that revisiting your past is going to make a difference? It isn’t. 

How do you want to enjoy and make the best of your time? For me, time is a depreciating asset. It’s the only thing that has any value. I don’t have any ambition, motivation or drive and I’m so happy. Primarily, because I’m not afraid anymore.

Somebody who is extraordinarily driven is extraordinarily scared, insecure, and incomplete. They still think there is something outside of them that they have to accomplish or they have to prove something. Sadly, no matter how much this person accumulates or accomplishes, they will never be enough for them because they don’t know who they are or why they are here.

Meditation For Reducing Stress And Finding Spiritual Guidance

I’m still riding the high vibes from an incredible weekend at OraclePalooza Virtual! Every year when we ask participants what they loved most about the event, we get a resounding response of, “The Guided Meditations!” 

Meditation is truly one of the greatest tools that we as humans have available to us for regulating our thoughts and emotions, reducing stress, and finding a sense of peace and groundedness. 

When you begin to meditate regularly, you’ll find that a feeling of groundedness comes more easily to you. 

Instead of being pulled and thrown by every little thing that happens around you, you’ll discover your ability to stay in your center – no matter what is going on around you, returning without as much effort to that center if you find yourself “tossed around”. This is what it feels like to be spiritually grounded. 

I think of this like learning to live in the eye of the storm. Everything can be in chaos and upheaval, but you are connected to a place of inner stillness and calm. Your inner state is no longer dependent on the things happening outside of you. (We’ll explore this concept more in my free workshop next week! Click here to learn more and to get free access.)

Meditation gives us flexibility and resilience to meet life’s ups and downs 

There’s a common myth that the goal in life is to reach a place of balance.

The Revelation of The Butterfly

Every energy you are experiencing is meant to ascend, to be used for your ascension. You’re at the point in your awakening where it’s time to allow your personal vibration and frequency to ascend into the frequency of divine love. Freeing you of control and resistance allows every experience to flow through you and facilitates your ascension. 

We do this by coming into an inclusive framework of our humanity which is what we’ve been doing in our Call to Calm Meditations over the past 400 and something days, and by allowing all of our energy to flow upward. This is important because you have been conditioned to take your energy and to make it everything outside of you. It’s why you are exhausted. This is how you’ve been trained and how you’ve been disempowered.

What's Your Favorite Tool for Transformation?!

When you discover the right tool on your path to transformation, it can feel like discovering a “soul GPS” or a magic mirror that shows you everything you need to know about yourself and about life. 

On the quest for spiritual transformation, there’s nothing better than the feeling that you are being Divinely guided – like the Universe is showing you clues and signals that light the path home toward your higher self. 

This was the feeling I experienced when I first discovered Oracle Cards as a tool for personal growth and transformation. Initially, I was surprised to find out that Oracle Cards weren’t really about fortune telling at all, although yes they can be used to do that too,  but rather that they were like a direct line to an inner ancient wisdom and guidance from a High Power that knew me better than I ever could. From that moment on, I was hooked.

Watch and Release Yourself from Disturbing Thoughts and Feelings

All of our life experiences have been trying to teach us a certain grand lesson: Liberation from our captive condition (whatever that may be in the moment) cannot come by further deliberating it. We can see the wisdom in doing nothing toward our own troubled thoughts and feelings when we realize that the only way not to be dragged under by these negative states is to stay out of their life.

 

In many ways, this kind of watchfulness is a meditation. It involves our willingness – wherever we are and in whatever we’re doing, and regardless of what that moment may be that brings up in us what it does – that to do nothing in the face of those reactions is the beginning of a new relationship with them, the beginning of the next level of meditation. Because you see, meditation isn’t just sitting someplace with our eyes closed, quietly contemplating something of a spiritual nature, or doing whatever discipline we do in order to make the mind be still. No. That’s not meditation, at least not the next level that we’re looking at together.

Optimizing Our Experience

Everything is moving us to optimize our experience in being a human being. 

Optimizing our experience means you have to get in touch with what you need to figure out inside of you, getting in touch with what resonates with you and with what no longer resonates with you. For example, you don’t have to accept every invitation and go to everything everybody else is doing when you already know it’s not going to be in harmony with you, and you know it’s not aligned with who you really are. You know on a soul level that you are wasting time. For every moment, come into the acceptance of the moment. Our ancestors knew full well how to navigate our reality. 

We’ve complicated self-care and it doesn’t have to be complicated. You basically need to sweat, you need to hydrate, and you need to move to whatever degree you can. You need to provide yourself the fuel and support yourself in strengthening your foundation. There’s freedom in this.
