Cruising through a lot of photos of artworks from the exhibition at Dunedin Fine Art Center, swipe, swipe, swipe, and this one got me. Saint Helices 82, oil on canvas, 2000. And not that it makes a difference, but it is small, 10” x 7 1/2”. Yet it succeeds at performing the spatial changes and inversions I like, and the edges are nicely integrated in the composition. Also, similar to the plaster cast relief sculpture just before it, SH81, and similar to the watercolor before that one, Saint Helices 80. https://www.dfac.org/exhibit/david-frye-electromagnetic-narratives-the-saint-helices-series/. #dunedinfineartcenter #dunedinflorida #dunedin #contemporaryart #imagination #abstractart #astronomy #outerspace #nycart #painting #waves #dimension #visible #invisible #light #chiaroscuro #sacred #helixes

⚡️ The winds of change are in the air. This beehive Grid reminds me how devoted we all can be to bring forward collective change - when beautiful beings come together. It reminds me of the connectedness that creates ripple effects of expansion and love. The grid is already here. The collective revolution is already here. The Queen, The King. Building a solid foundation for all that is being invited into our lives. The lessons. The growth. Yes, today is a new day. A gift to bee. And built. So that the winds of change propel us forward with grace and ease. 🐝

It has long been known that the women’s hormone system is complex, so complex that it terrifies men and women alike. Women have been taught to mask their emotional rollercoaster by taking the pill, a form of birth control that literally subdues the bodies ability to make hormones. Men have been taught to steer clear of the women in their life at that certain time of the month for chance of setting off the beast. I went almost eighteen months straight without a period as a healthy young yogi traveling the world and when I came home and finally asked my MD if I should be concerned she simply said “there are 1 million reasons a woman might not get her period, don’t worry about it.” Hell no, I was not about to put my head in the sand and wait for the worst possible scenario to play out in real life. I thought up cancer and other horrible scenarios. With the help of a naturopath and new more integrative medical doctor, I found a slew of ovarian cysts and a high level of androgen hormones gave me a diagnosis of Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome. ⠀

Food is the source of so much confusion in our lives. What should we eat? How much? What benefits us and what doesn’t? I love thinking about food, dreaming up recipes and sharing food. And yes I get in my head about it sometimes and there was a time in my life when I counted calories as though it was an Olympic sport and developed yes a serious eating disorder. A really sweet man asked me a question after my conscious parenting workshop this past weekend @prairielovefestival. He shared that his daughters both have eating disorders and how could he work with this? I immediately went back a few decades in my mind, into that space when I counted my self worth in my calories and used food or not eating it as a form of control. I operated in a space of mind over body. Of disconnection and ungroundedness.
Today my relationship with food is so different. I eat when I am hungry, I eat listening to my body, literally to my gut. I eat from a place of integration and connection vs disconnection. I eat foods appropriate to the climate, the season, the time of day and specific to who I am and what my unique needs are at that time. I eat to honor our relationship to mama nature. And I eat to taste my beautiful food fully so that it offers me the sacred nourishment I need to live in this life and offer my gifts in service to the world.
This guidance is derived from Ayurveda, which in its holistic wisdom helps us to understand when we are in balance and when we are not and I am so so excited to share more of these insights this summer at yoga festivals and workshops.
Food is after all energy that we take in from the universe and integrate into our consciousness. And when we celebrate and enjoy our food with love and joy we will experience more of that love and joy in our life. Our food will become a source for our real healing.
So much more to say. Maybe a blog post will emerge soon. But in the meanwhile do share your thoughts and questions. With love and aloha... #food #health #healing #selfworth #modernayurveda #insiyayoga #insiyaayurveda #wanderlustfest #blissedandblessed #blissology #wellness #nutrition #sacred #consciousness #yogateacherlife #yogamama #myyogalife

These guys... they are full on Power houses and the three of them together... now that’s something else. They’ve been with me for a while. Many people have tried to buy just one but it is very clear that they are a set, not to be disturbed. And I would only sell them as a set to the right person. They love coming out to play though and blessing up anyone who wishes to engage with them 🌊🦋💙🦋🌊

Self-care is so much more than eating the right food, getting a good nights sleep just to name few. It also consists of giving yourself time, time to grieve, to feel, to hear your own inner dialogue and not only listening to it, but developing a trusting and solid relationship with it, where you feel confident in it’s guidance. It’s loving yourself when external circumstances could crush your soul and break your heart if you let it, it’s knowing when to say no and when it’s time to go. It’s when you come from a place of calm not defensiveness and you realise beyond a shadow of a doubt what is worth your time and what is not and guilt has nothing to do with it.
When you can love those who are no longer good for you from afar and know that to love and live in your truth some will no longer remain on your path. It it to forgive yourself, to come to a place where you are grateful for each and every choice and to love yourself each part, not from a place of ego but with and unconditional heart that has an awareness of just how perfect you are. You need not do anything or be anything to earn this love, you are enough just as you are.
It’s practice everyday, in every choice and action that brings you back to a place of remembering who you are and truly seeing your own light ✨

As you close your eyes tonight...I hope you find peace and ease. I fervently wish that you feel gratitude and wellness. As you breath in and breathe out, I pray that you recognize all the positive blessings that already surround you. Living this human experience is filled with challenges and so much complexity. But it is truly a blessing. The chance of being born is almost unfathomable. Estimates are 1 in 400 TRILLION or more! It is so easy to get caught in our human traps. What do you do when you feel that fear and anxiety? I focus on the gift of life that I get to experience...all of it. I have learned to put simple systems in place that provide daily support. One is breathing. We do it automatically so it’s easy to forget how much value it can bring. Why not try to breathe in all that brings comfort and breathe out all that does not serve you! Lmk if you want to hear more about fundamental practices for improving your life!

Tears are flowing right now. I'm not one to share about politics but I don't have words to express how saddened I am about this bill passing in NYC. A truth that has been revealed to me and sustained me throughout our ongoing infertility struggle is that 'WE don't create life- GOD does.' And every life is precious, sacred, valuable and important.
I'll be honest; before infertility, I was more open minded about abortion. And I am not here to bash or judge anyone who's life situation led them down that road- I have not walked that one. But I can tell you about the one I have lived on for over 2 years. The heart wrenching fits of inconsolable crying, the ever-present abyss in your soul; the longing. To be able to take part in the miracle of creating life is something that those 1 in 8 of us struggling with infertility dream. And it hurts to see this blatant disregard for what I know to be a great blessing sanctioned on such a level.
I realize that I am speaking from what I've read from news articles and discussions with friends, and I do not know every detail of what brought this bill about. But I cannot reconcile this to be right. Beyond the pretty words of "women's rights" and "women's health," is a bill that opens up a Pandora's Box of bad legislation that rips away not only the lives of those precious souls, but eliminates justice for abuse victims and validates infanticide.
So I am going to pray- and pray hard for the mothers-to-be who are walking in their "days of 'I don't know,'" who are in a tough spot, those who feel that "this way" is the only way or the best way out, who are overwhelmed with life and worries and anxiety. I am going to pray that they will know a deep and abiding peace, that another way is revealed to them, and that their health- be it physical or mental- is sustained. Y'all be sure to remember these women in your prayers as well 💕

Most sweet Jesus, Redeemer of the human race, look down upon us humbly prostrate before Thine altar. We are Thine, and Thine we wish to be; but, to be more surely united with Thee, behold each one of us freely consecrates himself today to Thy most Sacred Heart.
Many indeed have never known Thee; many too, despising Thy precepts, have rejected Thee. Have mercy on them all, most merciful Jesus, and draw them to Thy sacred Heart.
Be Thou King, O Lord, not only of the faithful who have never forsaken Thee, but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned Thee; grant that they may quickly return to Thy Father's house lest they die of wretchedness and hunger.
Be Thou King of those who are deceived by erroneous opinions, or whom discord keeps aloof, and call them back to the harbor of truth and unity of faith, so that there may be but one flock and one Shepherd.
Be Thou King of all those who are still involved in the darkness of idolatry or of Islamism, and refuse not to draw them into the light and kingdom of God. Turn Thine eyes of mercy towards the children of the race, once Thy chosen people: of old they called down upon themselves the Blood of the Savior; may it now descend upon them a laver of redemption and of life.
Grant, O Lord, to Thy Church assurance of freedom and immunity from harm; give peace and order to all nations, and make the earth resound from pole to pole with one cry: "Praise be to the divine Heart that wrought our salvation; to it be glory and honor for ever." Amen.

Sage & Rose Smudge Wand 🔥🍃🥀
Smudging is a practice that has been used for hundreds of years. When you burn special, healing herbs you clear energies around you that are in the air. You can smudge before/after light work, after a break up, when you need a shift in moods due to anxiety or depression, etc. The smoke from the smudge wands attaches itself to negative energy and once the smoke clears, the negative energy clears w: it. You can even allow the smoke to wash over yourself to cleanse away energies you feel may have attached themselves to you. This wand aids in: CALMING, CLEANSING ENERGY, CLEARING AWAY NEGATIVE ENERGY, & ATTRACTING LOVE 💕 DISCLAIMER: Smudge Wands, just like healing crystals, prayer, faith, etc, only work if you BELIEVE and put in the work. They won’t be ready for purchase until completely dried BUT you can PRE-ORDER now. Thank you ✨

emotions ... so many colours, shades, forms ... and the intensity of it is way way amplified when we are having our period ~ .
i gave myself permission...permission to be messy, to be emotional, creative... but not
NOT to be whatever they thought I have to be NOW... permission to be in my heart, in my womb, in my temple... not in my head, because they expect me to DO... to FOCUS, to give STRUCTURE or be PRODUCTIVE... to give SOLUTIONS ...
Not today, any other day ~
I am learning to honour my cycles, listen to my body... it is whispering it’s wisdom ... .

So much I can say about this vid but I'll try to hold it to 2 points:
1. Its absolutely amazing to me how well this beautiful black woman was able to articulate herself!! She was able to verbalize her desires, needs, & wants w/o any need for hostility, anger, resentment or angst. She didn't become closed off or scornful. She's making her point with a sternness n fortitude but still with a spirit of love. As a man ( a real man) it leaves u with no choice but to listen but to also listen with conviction n promise to correct whatever mistakes you've made that bothers her.
2. I'll be the first to admit how guilty Ive been of the exact digressions she speaks of.. N I'm sure I'm not speaking for myself. It's hard being a black man..n often times I've taken out those difficulties on the women that care for me. I've gotten much better with it over the years but there's always room for improvement. N I'm all for it 🙌
