A Simple Approach to Beating the Blues and Standing In Your Highest Power

Saranda

Reality getting you down? Make a getaway plan. For 20-25 Euros a night you can have a room with this view here in Saranda, Albania, swim in the Ionian Sea and eat some of the yummiest food ever. Read on for my core approach to beating the blues, plus more tips and my new course: 30 Days of Fun & Flow!

 

I’ve been a little up and down emotionally these past couple months. Actually, this whole year. It’s been a crazy year and I’ve been pushing the edges in my life and work — a lot. Can you relate?

Many of my friends have been experiencing an extremely challenging year, which has just started to let up a bit in recent weeks. And this kind of emotional experience is typical of many artists and Highly Sensitive People. Because we feel so strongly, we’re able to reach depths that allow us to penetrate the veils of the human condition. But it can also become a liability. When these kind of emotions start to spin out of control, it can be incredibly difficult to stay on top of your work.

A couple days back I was left to fend for myself in Albania when my sweetie took off for another adventure. Granted I’m in a beautiful place by the sea in my air-conditioned flat, with the most delicious food EVER just down the street… AND the way I live can be insanely challenging. With so many unknowns in my present and future, it can easily start to feel like the ground is slipping away when yet one more challenge rears it’s gorgeous face. So I have to do what it takes to step it up and stay on top of my game.

And for me — stepping up my game means:

Working harder to show up FIERCE and do the work, step into my Soul Power, and be real with where I’m at. So that’s what I done and wrote out my core approach in three steps, plus a few more for good measure below. I hope this helps! Try it out and let me know how it goes.*

How I Live and Travel the World With Zero Savings (With Love From Dubrovnik)

“Because you are alive, everything is possible.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

Favorite two pages of my passport

Favorite two pages of my passport

“How do you fund all these adventures around the world?”

I hear this question a lot. People must assume I’m a trust fund baby or something, which couldn’t be further from the truth. I’ve been a nomadic world traveler for two and half years now, and it suits me well — the endless adventure feeds my Soul — but I have to say it’s REALLY hard work too.

In the past two and half years I’ve traveled to more than 15 countries in Latin America and Europe, and lived for at least three weeks in 11 of them. When I find a location that feels right I like to stay for a month or more — I’ve found that’s when the magic and energy of a place really starts to sink in. It also enables me to live affordably and get more work done.

I’ve been searching for my own version of paradise since embarking on this great adventure on February 29th, 2012 (leap year day!). I don’t do boring, but it could have been different. I could have stayed in my cozy mountain getaway in Ashland, Oregon, or dug my heels into one of the many seaside cities near my hometown of Los Angeles.

But then I wouldn’t have been able to live in some of the most breathtaking places in the world — like Lago Atitlan (Guatemala), San Juan del Sur (Nicaragua), Manuel Antonio (Costa Rica), Galapagos Islands (Ecuador), Buenos Aires (Argentina), Stockholm (Sweden), and Edinburgh (Scotland) — I wouldn’t have met my dreamy Ginger, and I definitely wouldn’t have experienced anything near the life of my dreams. (And isn’t that what it’s all about in the end?!). Continue Reading →

Lost and Found :: In the Moment


Just a little slice of heaven from the ferry — Split to Hvar Island, Croatia — cut on my portable looking glass, in the center of this ancient city by the sea.

August 12th, Old City, Dubrovnik—

Sitting at the terrace of a cafe near the old church of St. Blaise, I recall the moment two days back on the bus ride from Split…lost in the looking glass of my phone camera roll. Lost in the ineffable spaciousness of Ocean Soul Flow, words drifting up from somewhere beyond the waves. I immerse into the sea. Tapping on my phone soon after, I watch with a smile as words spring to life, bringing clarity and meaning into the moment.

Now as I lift them up to the light, to where they belong here on the page, they fuse together with a montage of moments lost and found. Here then to accompany the little video above that I cut together this afternoon…  Continue Reading →

Hello Ma’ Baby! I may be crazy, but at least I’m having fun… is this not the best song ever? :)

So, this totally impromptu inspiration came to me today on the way to my lovely little office in Edinburgh — decided to record “Hello Ma’ Baby” on my uke and jam on some Soul Fire Love, and then went and published it! A little crazy, maybe, but I’m going with INSPIRED and let the Flow do it’s thing. It was fun actually! Hope you enjoy… ;)

This kind of thing would normally give me massive palpitations to share, but it was easy… why? Fierce Presence and the Fire of Love.

When I’m inspired and alive with some good ol’ Soul Fire Flow, sharing the stuff that really matters just gets that much easier… ;)

Love and happiness,
Satya

The Fire of Love Experience

Fire of Love circleA Journey of Spirit, Flow & Practical Magic (For Rebel Souls…) 

One challenge of being a mindful, creative and caring human with a Rebel Soul is that your heart is so big — and your vision so vast — you can easily be thrown off course at any given time. It takes a lot of inner strength to keep showing up in your highest power. And it takes an even firmer commitment to keep moving in the direction of your Soul Calling every day.

That’s where the Fire of Love Experience comes to play: A sacred space online, built around the core pillars of Soul Flow, Creative Fire and Practical Magic + FIERCE PRESENCE & FUN to help you step into your highest vision. Learn more and apply to join us here…

Behind the Scenes:

This is the first time I’ve ever taught ANY of this material live without an entrance fee, and I’m excited to see what happens! I’ve been wanting to share this work with a larger group of people for a long time, and now that I’ve launched the new Fire of Love Experience the timing feels just right.

We’ll explore some of the magical practices I’ve been testing and refining with the Fire of Love Community over the last couple years, including:

  • Settling into your Core Strength
  • Cultivating your Soul Power.
  • Overcoming deep-seated resistance to sharing and expressing your Soul Calling.
  • Energy healing and setting energetic boundaries.
  • Developing a sustainable Sacred Practice to help you stay on track with high energy every day.

It’s also the first time I will be publicly teaching the Fierce Presence daily sacred practice! Continue Reading →

Never Underestimate the Power of Real Love in Action: No Greater Force In the World

Real Love In Action

Real love is not some fluffy ideal. It’s the only power that can truly change the world.

I write these words from a place of both love and outrage. Outraged that the violence of war continues to destroy the precious lives of so many people from Gaza to the Ukraine to cities throughout the world. That innocent children, parents and families are forced to suffer such indignity, such pain and hardship. And that our governments continue to fuel this darkness with the support of our tax money, and in many cases our civilians.

But anger and outrage mixed with sadness is a force does little to alleviate the problem. Mixing Real love and compassion into the fire is our only hope. And I’m not talking about the fluffy ideal that we must all get along and love one another, however noble that may be. I’m talking about living real Love with a capital L.

Announcing the New Fire of Love Experience! {For Rebel Souls… :|: Edge Notes}

Castles in the Air

Inspired by finishing Henry Thoreau’s “Walden” I created this in homage (with an image from last summer with my beloved Ginger in Buenos Aires)

You see, love is not just an idea or a feeling to me. It’s the root of all existence. It’s what drives everything I do…

The Fire of Love is not all hearts and emoticons and love affairs. Those are all fine…but what really gets me? The Source. Soul Power. The Soul of the Universe. That’s what I’m talking about. That’s what moves me. That’s what makes amazing sh*t happen… when you get the foundations underneath.

And that’s what the Fire of Love Experience is about:

Awakening the Fire of your Soul, and adopting a sustainable practice of centering into your core strength, so you can make real progress in living the life of your highest calling.

Setting the foundations and reinforcing them mindfully with your daily practice. Every day.

On Friday I launched and opened applications, and as of this coming Saturday, July 19th — the doors will be open!

What’s it all about?

See Here > The Fire of Love Experience: A Journey of Spirit, Flow & Practical Magic (For Rebel Souls)

I’ve been working with the Fire of Love energy for the past couple years, and it’s an energy that’s both fierce and grace filled — like a Buddha with a flaming sword.

Bringing that energy into play through the Fire of Love Experience has been an incredible experience — both in witnessing a dream come to life, and in watching it weave its magic through the lives of the Rebel Souls brave enough to dive in with me these past couple years since first launching from Costa Rica in 2012.

The program is different in many ways than ever before, reflecting my personal shift in approach. It’s lighter, cleaner, and better designed to suit the strengths of our members.

AND the entry fee is also the lowest it’s been since the inaugural launch — reflecting my own lighter approach and the fact that it’s an entirely new format, one that I’m really seeing as a Beta relaunch. (Meaning, there will be kinks to work out, and I’m hoping to continually improve the experience with the feedback of all participants!)

So, bottom line, it’s going to be something special — and this is your invitation to apply and join us today.

The time is now! I would love to have you with us if you feel the call. If you have any questions, you can ask them right there in the application. And please share this directly with any friends who are also on the level. Thank you!

Don’t Like What You’re Seeing? Switch On the Buddha Channel

Let-the-light-in-640

“A human being is like a television set with millions of channels. If we turn the Buddha on, we are the Buddha. If we turn sorrow on, we are sorrow. If we turn a smile on, we really are the smile. We can’t let just one channel dominate. We have everything in us, and we have to take the situation in hand to recover our own sovereignty.”
– Thích Nhat Hanh, Being Peace

I’ve found the default state of being for most people — the primary channel — is wound up and wrapped in anxiety. Dark, tight, squeezed, preoccupied, self-absorbed, anxiety-ridden… qualities that may be natural, but which are fundamentally opposed to a happy and effective life.
