SANGHA: The Gathering

SANGHA

On Saturday, May 27th at 1PM Pacific I’m hosting the first global gathering of SANGHA — an experiment to explore the possibilities of sacred community online for the healing and transformation of self and society. This is a vision long-time coming and I hope to build stronger community among my fellow empaths, healers, creators, visionaries and heart-based entrepreneurs. I don’t know how it will unfold, but I am open to both offer and receive full support now as it is what is needed!

Sangha (Noun: /säNG(g)uh/) is a Sanskrit word denoting a spiritual community devoted to awakening the self. As my teacher Thich Nhat Hanh has said:

“The sangha is a place to practice for the transformation and the healing of self and society. When you are strong, you can be there in order to help society. If your society is in trouble, if your family is broken, if your church is no longer capable of providing you with spiritual life, then you work to take refuge in the sangha so that you can restore your strength, your understanding, your compassion, your confidence. And then in turn you can use that strength, understanding and compassion to rebuild your family and society, to renew your church, to restore communication and harmony.”

This SANGHA is a space in which we can gather to practice and embody the Fire of Love in a way that’s grounded, peaceful, practical, supportive, and ease-filled. It is not enough to just learn and feed the mind, we must anchor into Living The Practice and Doing The Work.

The topic for our first gathering is Soul Work, as in “Doing the Work of Your Soul” and working WITH your Soul through healing, energy work and spiritual practice. This is the key area I have been exploring, teaching and consulting around for many years. Healing is just one aspect—albeit a HUGE one—in opening us up to have clarity of mind and an open heart. But then we also need to fill up our cups!

There is limited seating available and no charge for attendance on the first gathering. In exchange I would ask for your full participation and honest feedback on the experience…

AND if you experience any big heart-opening, professional opportunities and financial openings, or surges in your creative expression/love life (as many of my hundreds of past clients and workshop participants have reported), I hope that you will let me know and share the love with your friends too! :)

Two years ago I closed the thriving Fire of Love community I worked so hard to build with mixed feelings, because as much as I loved what we’d created together it was time to re-envision and distill my essence into something that truly reflected my highest potential. I have grown and transformed so much since then I hardly recognize myself! Over the next months I will reveal more of these changes, but the best way to experience this is directly with me in group or in person. It is time…

I want to see your eyes shining back at me with “the glow” and feel your presence in circle, so we can bridge some of those gaps. So you can have that rare sense of being seen and held and received in the moment, just as you are. So you can experience receiving a direct transmission of energy healing and Universal Life Force.

SANGHA: The First Gathering
When: Saturday May 27th, 1pm Pacific Time (1-2PM Los Angeles time / 4-5PM New York / 9-10PM London)
Where: Private Zoom meeting space online – from the comfort of your home.
What: Soul Work — Energy healing, life-force activation and mindful practice circle.
Why: For the healing and transformation of self and society.
Exchange: I will ask for your full participation, and a brief report-back on your experience within a week after.

Limited space available – sign up here and let’s find out how much we can fill our hearts overflowing! See you in SANGHA. :) <3

Love,
Satya

Sacred Mind :: Sacred Breath – Virtual Healing Group

sacred mind

Sunday, May 28th at 1pm Pacific Time

Small Mind thinking vs High Self being. How to stay rooted in your Soul Power so you can walk in beauty and spread love and light every day? Hint: It’s in the breath!

Everything is connected—from what you think of in the morning as you greet each day to how you react when someone honks or cuts you off on your way home at night. As we learn to work with our Spirit and call in deeper levels of being to play, the mind is also given room to soften its hold on our lives. This is one of the greatest pathways to greater happiness and ease — to be able choose our thoughts and realities instead of being victim to our circumstances and the energies around us.

Through the practices of Sacred Breath Healing, you will learn to soothe and bridge the gap between mind and body as Oxygen and Spirit join forces to cleanse and recharge your blood, your being, and all the internal organs. We will also explore a new approach to mindful focus I have been developing to help improve your productivity and presence, and enhance your experience of life every day.

Helpers: Sacred Air/Wind/Mind/Spirit, Archangel Metatron, the Air and Sky Elementals and Eagle Spirit Medicine.  

***

My approach:

The healing energy that moves through me is the power of Spirit that moves through us all. I’m not here to “fix” you or create a dependency on myself as a healer or teacher. I am here to teach you to heal yourself and stand in your own highest power. Every day. This is the only power I know that can truly change the world for the better.

The space I hold for your healing process is strong, safe and magical – unlike anything you may have experienced before. When we circle up together we amplify the power of our healing energy and intentions. Sacred space is invoked as white sage and other offerings are made in prayer. United in a circle of light while each in our own space, we are swept into the music and magic through the flow of Breath and Spirit. Be ready to give up your false stories and beliefs, and experience big shifts and synchronicities lining up in your life when you simply show up as you are. Each person will receive the opportunity to be heard and receive personal guidance and support in group.

About Breathwork:

The pranayama breathing practice I teach is incredibly effective in releasing deep-rooted blocks and supporting the healing of your energetic, emotional and physical body. This gentle two-stage breathing meditation with ancient yoga roots can be used any time to ground and clear your energy, raise your vibration and restore symbiosis to your body and soul. Traditionally done while laying down, it’s very simple to integrate into your daily practice. I have witnessed deeper healing and self-empowerment in myself and my clients through Breathwork than 20 years of prior spiritual practice and training with masters around the world.

Benefits:

  • Release stuck energy and old beliefs that hold you back from living in your highest power and manifesting what you truly desire.
  • Learn how to harness the Universal Life Force for greater strength, vibrance and clarity in all your life and work.
  • Improve your overall health and energy levels — breathwork has been proven to help release toxins, lower blood pressure, reduce general aches and pains, strengthen the immune system, improve stamina and promote deeper sleep.
  • Release stress, anxiety, anger, sadness and self-doubt to make room for love, strength and confidence, and most importantly—your Spirit.
  • Receive direct guidance on overcoming your own personal challenges around healing, energy blocks, personal empowerment and spiritual practice—whatever that might look like for you.

All registered guests will receive an audio recording of the session, in case you are unable to attend live. You will also receive a post-session Cosmic Playbook download to continue deepening your own healing and practice. 

Space is limited, so please purchase your tickets in advance.  Set aside two hours for yourself, we will begin on time at 1pm and end by 3pm Pacific Time (Los Angeles time – see this site to convert to your timezone).

Sacred Spirit :: Sacred Fire – Virtual Healing Group

Sunday, May 7th at 1pm Pacific Time

Harnessing the passion, purpose and sacred power of who you really are. This is one of my favorites as many of you know I’ve been working with SOUL FIRE and the “Fire of Love” for many years. It’s some hot and spicy energy!

One of the challenges most artists, healers and creators have is learning to manage our energy to be more consistently productive in our lives and work. We all have layers of trauma and anger energy to deal with, and cultivating the flow of Love and Spirit within helps convert those fiery energies into a more productive and steady flow of passion-driven creativity. Lots of good energy and creative life force to work with here as we approach the full Mother’s Moon of May with gratitude.

It takes a conscious and active commitment to keep moving through and transmuting the shadow energies into light. We’ll be illuminating everything to shine bright and shine on!!

Helpers: Sacred Soul/Fire/Spirit, Archangel Michael, the Fire Elementals and Lion Spirit Medicine.

Healing at Lucidity Festival Eudaimonia Healer Sanctuary

I was honored to chosen to be on the official healing team for Lucidity Festival this year, and will be providing private sessions by donation! Breathwork meditation, energy healing, and intuitive counsel with your Spirit Guides and power animals. I will be in the healing sanctuary from 2-6pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Come by for a session or a hug. Here’s where you can Schedule your session. And in case you’re curious, my schedule outside of healing time is here  — so that I can know exactly what I am missing as I surrender to the call of Spirit. :)

I will have a small selection of pieces from my healing power crystals shop with me for friends and clients!

This is my first real festival. As an extremely empathic introvert expressionist I’m cool with performing and showing up to share my magic, but not so much with crowds and non-stop party fests — that has always felt unsafe and unappealing to me. Managing my energy is incredibly key and I have had to do a lot of work with myself to stay calm around the sheer number of unknown variables in stepping into something like this — it is all new to me, and I am surrendering to a different level of showing up guided and surrounded by my angels and High Self team.

This festival is different too. It’s really about the transformation of the individual and society. There are a bunch of different villages from the Lover’s Nest to the Warrior’s Way that all speak to the archetypes of humanity, which I am very much drawn to in my life and work for many years. The theme this year is Eudaimonia…

The Greek philosopher Aristotle described eudaimonia as ultimate happiness derived from two things: excelling at your role in society, and living a moral and virtuous life. (What was Aristotle’s Rx for Happiness?)

As you may know that’s very much in alignment with my life mission. I’m excited to meet some of the Santa Barbara soul family too as I plan to make my home base and set up a healing sanctuary somewhere in Santa Barbara county near the woods. Here’s a piece from one of the founders about the story arc of the festival, reclaiming and seeding the story of our collective future so we can move into that reality of a truly human-centric love and truth based world…. Lucidity Festival’s heroic journey not yet complete.

Look forward to meeting the magical souls and being delightfully surprised by sweetness and magic, big love and healing, and I’m thinking some fun too! ;)

Xo,
Satya

The Power of Sharing From the Heart vs the Sadness of Existence

Satya

The trouble I find with so much writing and teaching on personal development is it’s more words and ideas than substance. More teaching than showing. More selling than serving. Worst of all is when it perpetuates more pain and confusion than truth or healing. And this is true for so much of what we create as passionate, caring, committed humans, no matter how mindful or well intentioned we may be. You look at where and what it comes from, you look into the motivations of the people who are creating and sharing it, you see the emptiness and lies we are surrounded with, and your heart cannot help but breaking open for what is there.

I want to share something that changes your life, every time.
I want to whisper into your soul and flip the switch that makes you go ahhhh!
I want to linger in your memory like that once-in-a-lifetime embrace when you finally received the nourishment you craved your whole life (‘was it a dream or was it real?’).
I want to go deep with love, and then deeper still, because it’s the only way I know that truly soothes my soul.

What do you want to receive? Maybe something of what I look for too…

A light that went off in my heart turned on.
A recognition that I’ve found someone who maybe, just maybe, might understand me.
A feeling I can take with me, to hold in my heart and fill the space of love that left.
Another human being who values what I do — who holds the experience of life in a space of humble awe and reverence and respect.

And kindness. True kindness. Always, kindness. So precious. Rare.

I think it’s what we all really want. Something simple and complete. To be witnessed and received. To be honored and respected. And maybe, if we’re lucky, to be that person for someone else we love.

When we share the work of our soul, we’re always secretly hoping to elicit a response — to feel and hear and experience that love reflected back to us in some way. No matter how healed or strong or loved we may be, we will always need this in some form. There’s nothing more painful then when our creations are ignored. An echo of love sent back on deaf ears. But how can we expect to receive anything more than what we sent out? When we were deaf and blind to our very own heart. Can we really expect the love that we crave when our own self worth and value is so twisted up and locked away behind walls of hardened resin and steel?

How can it ever be enough, when our own hearts are too closed off to be satisfied in receiving anything less than riches, fame and recognition??

A heart that has no real kindness or compassion for itself is a hard and jagged place to rest. It offers no refuge or respite from the cold cruel world in which it grew — through which we have all emerged in some form. It brings more sadness, tearing at the seams in our hearts. Like a bucket with cracks that can never hold water, or that hole in your pocket where keys get lodged and coins are lost forever, it’s a place where no amount of love can ever be enough.

I can think of so many creators who are friends online and almost continually working from this place. Always pushing levers to elicit response, and not really present to receive when we do show up to try and help or offer some kindness and attention. Never satisfied. Never enough.

You can see it all the time and almost everywhere you look. I have been there! I know what it’s like. That part is here in all of us. It just is. It’s there. It’s waiting to be seen and held. Loved into wholeness.

I don’t care how much self work you’ve done, or how proud you are of your scars, there is no end to the healing you can do to bring yourself into wholeness. To fully embody the strength and power of your true self. I can speak from so many years of experience, so much soul healing I have done, it only gets easier with time and practice. Each layer revealing another. And sometimes things just have to get temporarily uglier and messier before they get better. Just a fact of life. The funny way things work.

If you want to receive something akin to the fullness of your spirit, you absolutely can! This I know. You can speak from the heart and soul as much as from the mind. You can show us what is really true. You can draw from the well of your love. In giving from that place your work becomes a thousand times more resonant. So much more powerful. And if you can stay open to receive, that much more love in return.

Just please don’t speak down to us like churchgoers from the pulpit. Don’t create and teach and share without acknowledging your own place in the darkness you seek to dispel. Make space for all of what’s inside. Give from a place of true generosity. Not because you are trying to convert emotions into sales, or just to get a rise, or something more than what you have to give. Share the love, because it feels good. Simply because it is. Good.

You are here to do some good and share the light, to be that something for the people you love in the world. Are you not? Is that not in the end what you truly want to give? And to receive? And to Be? You see, your beautiful big heart, your passionate soul, the sadness and regret underneath it all — it really just wants a little love and recognition. A lot of love and compassion. And then some more. Pretty please…with cherries on top.

Hahaha tralalahh! Silly little sad heart. Beautiful broken-hearted friend. Bucket full of holes. You are welcome too. Here is some light so that we both may see more clearly…some putty to help you patch the cracks with love. I feel you, I recognize you, I welcome you. 

I won’t claim to love you as you are. Who can even say? Do I know you really? I have so much love to give and share in heaps though…. Perhaps I do know you, because I swear that I can feel your heart looking through my eyes and these words when you come here to read. I can feel so much of what you feel. At times it’s like your heart and mine they almost beat together…and yes, so much love in there.

It hurts me sometimes to feel that sadness, but the more that I love it to wholeness inside myself, the more that I can receive your heart too. Just as it comes. I can receive, because it’s all in there. Underneath it all, there are no cracks. No holes to be found in the sea of love. And if you come forward honestly, and share your light with me, I promise I will look for it, and I will find it, and I will receive you fully. No matter how shrouded it may be I will see the light in you, and then it will have no choice but to shine a little brighter.

Ahh yes that feels so much better! So lovely and warm and true. :)

Always,
Satya

 

** Shine on and share some of that beautiful true heart with us **

Healing Aggression With Love and Flow

I was waiting to make a left turn into the local coffee shop parking lot and blocking the way, so someone behind me started honking aggressively. I could have probably gone faster and cut off oncoming traffic, but I value life too much for that. I’m also a fiery fighter at heart—I don’t take s**t from anyone—so my natural response for years would have been to just shout and curse them back. Fight fire with fire baby….

That kind of energy from behind feels like a violation, but people don’t realize their own power—they really don’t realize what they’re doing! After many years of self-training I’ve learned to manage the energy so that when people send it over I can just feel it and let it move through me. I won’t push back unless I’m having a particularly bad day or just feeling very pissed off myself. I might still judge their actions with a twinge of emotion or disgust though.

When this happened today I muttered under my breath, “a–holes.” It didn’t have a lot of energy behind it, more of just an observation, ‘those people are being a–holes’. But this time it just didn’t sit with me. ‘Why am I judging them?’ I thought. Probably because I’m still mad for being pushed against with that aggressive energy. Because like all of us to different degrees I’ve experienced that all my life and it does not feel good.

But here’s the thing: maybe they weren’t being inappropriate at all — maybe they were just being themselves. Using their own conditioned response. Maybe they were stressed because they needed to get somewhere and it was an emergency. Maybe because all of life feels like an emergency to a lot of people right now, so our emotions are heightened. It’s not even conscious — we need some way to let off steam, so that’s how we do it.

There’s this truth about relationships that when any strong energies or emotions are not addressed or released in one partner, it comes through like a steam valve in the other. So, basically, we are all steam valves for each other in society.

The empaths and artists are the biggest release valves — more like industrial steam pipes — providing a really necessary and valuable service that is not really seen or recognized. But that’s another topic for another day.

Today I remembered a really great practice that helped to diffuse and heal the aggressive energy for me. (When I say remember, it’s just that it feels like something I’ve learned a thousand times before, and today it just made sense and seemed valuable.) After I made the turn and was pulling into a parking space, I was musing about my judgment there… ‘Are they really a–holes? Maybe they’re just being aggressive and honking.’ And the words came to mind with a little compassion, ‘oh, so aggressive!’ Just a touch of humor and perspective, and that felt so much better.

Then I thought, ‘that feels like a really great teaching I could write about!’

Suddenly the energy had been activated inside of me to do something positive. So you see, there is real healing in that. For myself in this case mostly— witnessing and transmuting the energy with compassion—but also potentially for those who receive it. Maybe you will remember the next time you get flipped off on the road. You will have some compassion and not take it personally. You will just witness with wisdom and name the energy, and then put that energy towards something good! Then I will have done a little something worthwhile with what I have.

People throw energy around in the form of anger and violence every day with little awareness of what they’re doing, or what effects it has. Then we wonder why so many people die from unnecessary accidents (more than 30,000 transport-related deaths every year in the US — see the odds of dying).

We lost my beloved sister ten years ago in a car accident with someone who was likely not driving mindfully. There’s not a day goes by I don’t feel that sting. Do you really want to be one of those people? Do you want to put your energy towards more aggression and violence in the world? Or would you maybe want to heal the aggression inside yourself with compassion, so you can be a more productive and kind human?

Fire can be good! When you use it as a creative force instead of a destructive one, you’re sort of softening the fire with love. It can never really be tamed, but you can learn to work respectfully with fire and contain it with your boundaries. You can learn to keep a good bucket of water nearby. So instead of letting it run completely wild and burn everything down, you can be an instrument of positive change.

There are so many more metaphors I can think of here, from the need for controlled forest fires to the way we obtain our fuel for the fire. A little fire is good — necessary even — but I’ll leave it at that for now. You can be healing society and the communities you are a part of, every time you drive around town. Kinda cool hey? :)

Feel the energy, witness and name it compassionately, then use it towards some good in the world.

Love,
Satya

p.s. there are times when fighting fire with fire is appropriate and necessary—pick your battles and please always use your energy and judgment wisely!

 

** Lord, make me an instrument of thy burning heart o’Love! **

How I learned to stop self-sabotaging, get grounded and wake the f*ck up

mama crystal

When you were growing up did you ever have an older brother or classroom bully do that thing where they took your hand and forced you to punch yourself repeatedly? “Why are you hitting yourself? Why do you keep punching yourself?!”…. Over and over again, and you were powerless to stop them because of your size. That was the worst. Especially when it was someone who supposedly cared about you. It reminds me of what we do to ourselves when we give our power away to fear and resistance. We allow these ungrounded emotions to manifest in ways that sabotage our capacity to show up and do the work we’re called to do. It’s like repeatedly punching yourself in the face or holding your own hands behind your back— only now your powerless against your own self-bullying.

This is a serious problem for many people and creates a bunch of unnecessary challenges. Instead of embodying the strength and Spirit of who we really are, we fluctuate somewhere between our mind, body and ego. Yes, there may be occasional moments of selfless joy and inner connectedness, but mostly we alternate between an over-active obsessive mind, and a reactive emotional state. It’s too painful to be present with what’s really going on inside, so we move outside ourselves and start operating at a surface level. The emotions bubbling up are not being dealt with so we start bumping into things, causing accidents and hurting ourselves and others. Then we become even more ungrounded and disembodied. We find more excuses why we can’t “do the thing” and proof we’re bound to fail….

All these elaborate coping mechanisms to avoid experiencing the trauma, pain and sadness hidden deeper inside the emotional body. Just so that we don’t have to actually FEEL what’s going on and deal with it!

Feeling all the feels…

I know, you feel a lot. I do too. It sucks sometimes. Solution: Reason your way through it! Hustle harder. Ignore the pain. When you’re in your mind and in the hustle, you can power your way through almost anything. And once the mind kicks in it has this amazing power to cut off the emotional body. Then eventually when your mind gets tired and those feelings start coming up again, shove them down with sugar, alcohol, Netflix, social media and whatever other addictions you can wrap yourself up in. Am I right? Sorry, no. Bad solution. You lose.

What’s really going on? For any human today—and some of us much more than others—there’s an immense amount of unhealed trauma stored in our bodies from the time of birth. Some of this is from our lineage. Much of it we have blocked from memory. The rest just hurts too bad to even touch it, so we stay in our minds and glued to the bottle or the screen or whatever it is just pick your poison…. All this trauma, pain and sadness we are avoiding, this is the root of all resistance. Period.

There are worlds of pain inside us that just need to be witnessed and loved to be released. Some of it just needs to be blasted with light and moved on out. This is what it means to heal. It’s a lifetime undertaking, but each time we heal the wounds and lighten the load that we carry, we become a little more capable of carrying our own weight and walking in beauty. More integrated and effective as a human being. More grounded and embodied in our highest power.

Alternatively, we can just power through the resistance and keep the pain locked away forever. There it  will fester and possibly help manifest: Heart Disease (the #1 killer in the world), Cancer (#2 in America), Lung Disease (#3), or any number of chronic illnesses.

Worth the risk…? The main problem I see with leaving this darkness unattended in ourselves is not so much that it can accelerate our own sickness and death, but how it affects the human collective. How it manifests outwardly as violence and abuse, merging into widespread systemic bigotry, a Trump regime, a global war machine, and the horrors of terrorism we are now experiencing at unprecedented levels in human history.

Of course—ironically—the establishment is all for this. Unhealed and emotionally broken people are the prime targets for predatory advertising and social control. They will believe whatever propaganda they are fed. They will become prisoners of consumerism and debt. They will work in shitty mindless jobs their whole lives. They will make excellent cogs in the machine.

What are we going to do about this situation? Or to the point: What are you going to do about it?

At some point it became painfully clear how effectively I was sabotaging myself and getting in the way of my own success and happiness. How great I had become at leaving a path of destruction around me. How angry I was at the world, and how fundamentally ineffective that made me as a human being. Then I saw how different it felt when I worked through the darkness and shadows, when I healed the traumas that were holding me back, when I faced my biggest fears and jumped anyway. I was able to break through so many bonds to new levels of love and strength in my own self it was shocking.

Through all of this healing work and determination to follow my spirit, I was blessed to experience some things that most people dream their whole lives about and then lie in their death beds regretting not having done. I spent years traveling the world and living in countless cities from Latin America to Europe and the Balkans. I loved and lived better than I could ever imagine was possible. It was amazing beyond belief at times, but I’m not patting my own back or gloating over what I’ve accomplished. The truth is that up until recently I was working so hard that I almost killed myself.

I know, work harder so you can have more of what you want!

I won’t go too much into the details now, but the bottom line is I took all of the extra energy and strength from my practice and put it into my work so that I could stretch even farther. And it got to the point where I went way. too. far.

Perhaps by now you can guess what was the root cause of my self-destructive behavior in the name of freedom. I can say clearly that it was NOT the manifestation of a self-loving and fully healed person. I was a workaholic, and that is an addiction as harmful as any other. I saw this, and I knew that something was far off in me and my work, and so I doubled down on “the real work” and did even more healer training, attended more workshops, retreated farther from the limelight and dug deeper into my truth.

What I finally came to see this year was that after all “the work” and everything I had learned over five years of healer training and mentorship—not to mention following the call of my spirit—I was STILL resisting the true calling as it was manifesting now. And that was what was killing my joy and keeping me in the big fog.…

Now it’s been a LONG road to get here, but I can finally say without shame or doubt that I have claimed my true role as a healer, teacher and clairvoyant advisor. I work with animal spirits, angels and other spirit guides. I work with energy. I work with the elements. I’m obsessed with power crystals. I’m also a writer and an artist and whatever else I want to be. I love the dichotomy of being both human and divine. I believe the path to liberation is through the human experience. Not above it or beyond it, but right here. Every day. “How can I be a more effective and powerful incarnation of my highest potential?” That is my obsession.

It’s a long and twisty, inglorious road…

Yes, I have thousands of hours of spiritual practice and training under my belt, but all the training in the world doesn’t mean shit if you can’t put it to work in the world. I am proud to have learned how to maneuver through the darkest tunnels of despair and self doubt. I know how to manage the dramatic ups and downs of life as a true Empath and “Highly Sensitive Person.” I can find the root to most any problem that is presented to me and advise my clients how to work through it and heal themselves. I’m still far from perfect. I haven’t struck it rich. I don’t claim to have it all figured out. But I do know my strengths and weaknesses and I’m learning more each day.

This is why I’ve devoted my life to learning how to heal and teach others to heal themselves. Right now I feel a little like one of those men who struck gold after years of traversing the Yukon winters 150 years ago must have felt. Soul gold. Now I need to get better at sharing that divine gold to make the cycle complete. So I’m writing and creating again, teaching the workshops on healing, and doing my part to show up and serve as strong as I can. In real life. I live to serve and explore and that’s what drives me. I will not however sacrifice all my health and happiness and relationships with loved ones for “la causa” as they say in the old country.

We all have more of our genius to share. More strength and light to step into. More sadness and anger to release. The thing that holds you back—whatever it may be, whatever excuse you name or whoever you may blame—do you think you might be ready to stop fighting it and throw up your arms already? Because the more you resist, the harder it fights back. The longer you prolong the agony through numbing yourself with drugs and addictions and other distractions, the faster you bring yourself hurtling towards your inevitable death. You and all of us with you.

Are you gonna keep busting a Tyler Durden and hitting yourself over and over in the face? C’mon that’s so 1999…

It’s time to stop sabotaging yourself. You are not a victim. You are not a cog in the machine. Be a part of the solution we desperately need right now. You can do this. There’s a lot of good work to do and yes, we need you here—on earth—grounded, whole, and ready for the good fight!! Starting this moment. Every moment. Breathe deeper. Dive deeper. Be real. Do you. No one else can do it for you.

LOVE,

Satya
