14 Everyday Ways to Celebrate Being Alive

Try everything, taste everything, touch everything. Live a life jam-packed with adventure and meet your Big mystical family. http://dherbs.com/uploads/news/id9182/yogathumb.jpg
Today is my birthday and marks 25 years that I've been practicing yoga. That's 25 years of showing up at the mat, listening and letting go, of finding God. After a lot of trial and error, today I believe I'm living the best version of my life. I feel centered and genuine and so free to be me. And each day I celebrate being alive, surrounded by truly amazing people.  
 
So in the spirit of all the sayings we heard as kids, here are 14 soulful and spirited tips on the things that make me feel super alive in my life.  Family, now is the time of your life.  So, Be Here NOW!   
 
1. Love the one you're with. 
 
And, by this, I mean YOURSELF. If you're usually on the bottom of the list, put yourself on top. 

2. Don't talk to strangers? No, you must talk to strangers!  
 
Know why? Because when you do, they become less strange. If I never talked to strangers I wouldn't have any friends!  
 
3. Be interested in what comes out of your mouth. 
 
Words can be forgiven, but they can never be taken back.  
 
4. Remember: Giving is the new receiving. 
 
Instead of me me me, do re mi!  
 
5. Get lost and found!  
 
You can't be found if you don't get lost. Explore yourself, but don't forget to look down and see where your feet are standing. Realize that you're exactly where you need to be.  

6. Put your parents on your altar. 

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Know and celebrate where you came from and all that you are. (Embracing this might require some pranayama practice.) 
 
7. Be a bumper sticker. 
 
Express yourself, through yourself! 
 
8. Break out into spontaneous acts of wildness.  
 
Do a handstand on the Brooklyn Bridge. Mix your stripes with polka dots. Funk it UP. Pick daisies with your toes. Put your iPod on and dance with complete abandon wherever you are—in the subway, on 42nd street or as you slide into your yoga class. Whistle, wink, wave and when in doubt smile. Any one of these will bring the sun out and become a cosmic boomerang. 
 
9. Go out and see the world. 
 
Try everything, taste everything, touch everything. Live a life jam-packed with adventure and meet your Big mystical family.  They've been looking for you!  

10. Travel light.  
 
Highlight your LIFE by lightening your load. You'll find you need much less of everything than you think.   
 
11. Move like YOURSELF!  
 
Do YOU, VIP! Let your authentic self come shining through.  
 
12. Say it with me: There are no mythtakes, it's all a myth.  
 
Better yet, say it with a lisp, and make as many as you can.
 
13. Don't worry, be happy.  
 
Remember the song? Download it and put it in your iPod. It's the mantra of a lifetime...
 
And, here's an extra one for the road.  
 
14. Feel the blessings.  
 
They're everywhere. Breathe them on in.

    Q: Happy New Year to You and yours!!! My son is three years old; he was born December 12, 2004, this was a Sunday. Ever since he started talking he's had a fascination with the light and light bulbs. He looks up and says "mom look, the light is beautiful" or "mom see the beautiful light bulb". I look at it and I usually say yes it is beautiful Jordan. However, I do not see what he sees nor do I understand the attraction. When he was two weeks old I took him with me to Olive May and the old wise woman there saw him and asked me to bring him to her. When she looked at him she said "he is indigo--he is like sunshine when he enters a room and people will be drawn to him." So far the part about people being drawn to him has manifest true. What do you think of the attraction/fascination to the lights? Also, I read that awesome article on birthmarks!! I don't have one, however, my son has one on his buttock; I don't remember which one at the moment. His primary pediatrician called it a mongolian spot..what do you say?? Does it mean he will fall and hurt himself or has fallen?? Looking forward to seeing you in March. Love, Peace and Blessings.

    A:

    You son is most definitely an INDIGO CHILD (specifically a CRYSTAL or RAINBOW CHILD manifesting all 7 spectrums of color of the Rainbow). His preoccupation with lights could denote many things. For one, he is Light himself (light-worker). It could be that he still remembers the Light before re-incarnating this time around. We all eventually move into the Light in order to move on. Mongolian spot? A very negative term! Buttocks denote an injury that occured on that area in a past life. Birthmarks don't mean something adverse will happen to you in this lifetime where your birthmark is. It doesn't mean this at all. Just be open to experience and learn from and with your child. Live in the moment and just be open!

    Q: I need to download the three songs you have on your website. I've done a google search but the songs coming back aren't the same. I play them for for Special Education Students.

    A:

    Song #1 "Hare Ram" is from the CD "In the Name" by singer WAH!
    Song #2 "The Wind" is from the CD "Kitaro's Greatest Hits" and "The Best New Age Music in the Universe." Kitaro is the artist.
    Song #3 "Bolo Ram" is from the CD "Jai Jai Jai" by singer WAH!

    Q: I am beginning a career as an artist but I am a single mother. I have worked in many corporate offices as a temp. I have attempted attending schools for things I thought would make me money. I really want to be a successful artist but I also have to take care of my son and work on art and work on my freelance contracts. I do not make the money I want or live where I want to live yet. I help my mother with her bills, I buy groceries and cook for everyone, I work at my uncles center for children and out of an art gallery at the homeless shelter as well as attend courses regarding the art business. I am doing it all without acquiring debt but I would like to know if it sounds like I am doing enough. I live a very lonely life, no real friends, no boyfriend. The only "kicks" I get are smoking a little weed and drinking a little wine here and there. I take my son to school and pick him up daily. I made sure I got him into one of the top schools in my city I also try to teach him and read to him as much as possible and keep him out of trouble. It gets hard. How do I stay motivated? I think the thing that bothers me most is uncertainty and the lack of money I have right now. How do I get to the next level financially without acquiring debt or having to fight traffic and deal with crazy attitudes every day?

    A:

    I apologize for the very delayed response, we have been experiencing technical difficulties.  I first would like to commend you on your ability to prioritize in such an effective manner.  Your life sounds like one lived in great service to  and love of others.  However, it is also VERY important that you receive energy from others so that you do not become too imbalanced.  Balance in life is crucial in all things (spiritual, physical, cognitive, relational etc).

    Your loneliness is your heart's/spirit's way of asking for relational balance.  It will continue asking louder and cause difficulties in other areas of your life/being until you create this balance.  Your substance use (and thank you for your honesty) only temporarily masks the loneliness, but drugs can only make it worse.  You see, drugs block us from becoming skilled at creating healthy relationships because they numbs us by turning down the volume on our brain's natural pleasure-centers.

    Additionally; keep in mind:  Your first fruits are always to be consumed by YOU!  You must always place yourself first, even before your son.  In example:  Airlines direct you that in the event of trouble you are to place your own oxygen mask on first.  You can be of no use to your son if you are unconscious due to lack of oxygen.  Similarly, if you give all of your fruits to others, you will have no "seed" or energy to produce more fruit.  

    You must give to you first!  Then you have the energy to give to others.  It teaches others how to give to you, how to love you, how to respect you and your needs while giving them the opportunity to reciprocate by giving to you.  This is how we balance giving.  Don't worry if it feels selfish at first, it definitely will seem that way, to you and possibly others.  Its just the change of tides making everyone feel a bit uncomfortable - but this will balance out in time as you become  more skilled at receiving and feel more worthy of others' care .

    I realize you have asked several other questions, however I have addressed the one I feel will help unblock your energy and allow you to see that the answers to the other questions have always been right before you.  We are born with everything we need to accomplish our goals, we only need to focus on the proper utilization of these gifts and resources.  If you couple this skill with fearlessness and belief in oneself, you will win.

    This communication does not constitute a client/coach relationship.  This is for information purposes only.

    Life is simply beautiful! 

    Enjoy your Self!
