Everyone that comes to me for a session wants to know one of these things:
What is my life purpose? How can I make more money? What can I do about my relationship issues?
The hardest part of my job as a jyotish coach is not giving advise or looking at someone's chart and seeing what the challenges are for a person's life. I look at the karmic map and there are the struggles, the issues and challenges staring at me. Finding what isn't working, is not the hard part.
As a jyotishi, the challenge I face consistently is giving resources, tools and embodiment guidance, but instead watching the client choose not to take these vital action steps. Watching a client refuse to take action in order to move through their weaknesses and obstacles is hard for me! Especially since I know that some very different approaches are needed in their life, in order for their desires to actually manifest.
This requires my deepest surrender and detachment.
It's true, many people just want to be told what to do and they want some magic pill to take care of it for them. They want a quick fix. A mantra, or yagya (which can often be valuable no doubt.) Or they want to know that their problems will just go away once Saturn isn't transiting over their Moon etc. Many clients hope that their "soul mate" will magically appear once a relationship transit arrives. But the reality is, it really isn't that simple.
We get what we are ready for. What we are prepared for. What we have created space for.
Money, love and creativity are all ruled by Venus- and rightfully so. These three powerful factors in our lives can bring joy or misery, abundance, or little more than a drop. Money, love and creativity are all determined by our ability to give and receive, or quite literally, the amount of flow and fluidity we are working with; the fluidity we are able to use and able to harness. This is why Venus is also connected to water, the most vital life-giving resource for us. Without water in the physical body, we have death. Death is lack of life of course, so the more vitality and life-giving forces we invite into our beings, the more life, fluidity and flow we experience as a result.
The pelvis (and organs therein) as well as the second chakra, are the physical containers of money, love and creativity. If we are feeling a lack in any one of these areas, we need to address the physical issues connected to them as well. But the first chakra, and the body parts included in the first chakra (every thing from the pubic bone down to the feet), is perhaps the most vital part of the manifestation process.
My favorite money quote is: Money wants clarity, purpose and flow! These are the domains of the first and second chakras!
Contrary to popular belief, it isn't through thinking your desires that they become manifest. And contrary to popular belief it isn't through your meditation practice, your affirmations, your positive thinking, or anything else that is a part of your mental body process, that will actually help you materialize the intangible into the tangible.
If you want to bring your desires into the material, you have to work with the first and second chakras (the lower, base, chakras) which are intimately connected with the material world. These chakras are all about being here, right now, in a physical form. Our body, our grounding, our actual physical connection to our life, is the realm of the first chakra. If you aren't in your body, embodied, you can not, and will not, be able to get your ideas and visions to manifest into the material world. We quite literally manifest through our body!
This reality is reiterated through the story of lord Brahma creating the universe from his navel. He reminds us that we have the ability to create our lives- which is why he and his consort Saraswati rule over creativity and the power of the arts. They remind us that it is our creativity that is literally our most potent source of knowledge and wisdom for this existence.
Want more money, love and creativity? Get into your body wisdom and your emotional body wisdom. Manifestation happens when we are intimately connected with our feeling level, our felt senses, the emotional body wisdom and the intuition. This is why I am so passionate about a body-centered approach to therapy, one that uses somatic wisdom, while also drawing upon the expressive arts as a resource for intimate exploration, and harnessing our innate, creative wisdom. It is also why I start my clients off with embodiment step number one, the three level check in.
We must get more embodied if we want our dreams to manifest. We must work with the body wisdom and our intuitive knowing in order to create from our most primal sense of self. This is where we tap into our innate creativity. Creativity is actually a vital ingredient for the money and the love to start flowing. This is the gift of the embodiment resources and the art therapy techniques I work with; they potently activate the creative and physical channels. This stimulates the flow and fluidity of Venus, which we need in our lives in order to be more nourished on an ongoing basis.
Don't think your desires. Feel them. Move them. Create with them. Go beyond your imagination. Gather your desires from your dreams, from your sense of intuitive knowing, and move them into existence through your body.
Use your jyotish chart as your map to get you to the wisdom you need to unlock your shadows, disappointments and challenges. But don't stop there. In fact, if you stop at just the "knowing" of what your issues are, you won't move beyond them or learn to work with them differently. If you really want lasting change, and to create a different life for yourself, you have to take action steps that will literally help you re-create your life from the ground, up. From your feet to your head. From your first chakra and your second chakras first, then all the way up to your 7th chakra!
I'm very passionate about my system, my tools and the synergy of modalities that I use of course! But I'm even more passionate about sharing them with you, and watching you grow, flourish, and thrive as you re-create your life over and over again!

I just finished sharing my *free* Full Moon Eclipse Portal class.
Truthfully, this is the first day I've gotten out of bed and my pajamas, in days. There's been a lot of grief moving through me and this is one of the ways I honor it.
Over the past few days, parts of my shadow emerged for me to lean into and listen more closely. I've been tapping it through, moving with it, creating with it- allowing my emotional body to release and clear old, stagnant energy.
Today, feels lighter and a rich clarity has arrived. A new passion and sense of commitment to life has emerged.
This is the purpose of attending to your grief vigilantly.
Grief and life are one and the same- dark and light. As I've written about extensively in my Eclipse Portal offerings, the previous new Moon in Aquarius + Solar Eclipse, is responsible for stirring the polarities within very acutely.
If you haven't been feeling this inner conflict, noticing your challenges, leaning into your emotions, you probably aren't paying attention.
Your critic may be really loud right now. Have you noticed? Clients, friends, students (and my own critic) have shared their resistance to moving towards their shadow.
Do you fear that if you lean into your darkness, it may swallow you up? You may not find the other side?
The truth is, resisting your pain can have disastrous effects on your healing process. It is impossible to release and change when you are resisting. Judgment can keep you blocked and in the dark.
If you get nothing else out of this eclipse portal, lean in. Listen. Get silent. Ask your critic what it needs. Let its messages help you soften. Notice the voices within that keep you from moving closer to your pain.
When you resist your inner pain, it amplifies. Healing comes when we can move closer to compassion for our own darkness.
My Full Moon Eclipse Class will support you with this process of leaning in, listening, and moving through the grief that is present within you.
This is a time of radical release. Please use it with intention. We won't get another time like this until September!

Do you see your challenges as gifts?!
It's rare that challenging emotions are recognized as the gifts that they are.
In fact, working with your emotions, rather than against them, can have powerful effects on how you create your life. Life is created from, manifested from, the feeling level- not the thinking level. Simply put, if something feels good, you will want to create more of it and if it doesn't feel good, you will not want to create more of it in your life.
There are challenges to manifesting more of what you want obviously. But the key is actually through the wisdom of the emotional body landscape. By deepening your relationship with your feelings, you can start to navigate this terrain more consciously. The reality is that most people are neglecting, avoiding, resisting or refusing to address this powerful manifestation resource because it is not always a comfortable process.
Emotions are powerful resources of insight. Feelings are one of the biggest blessings of being a human. They always tell us what we need. Underneath every intense, painful or overwhelming emotion is a message- and a key to unlock our highest potential.
Anger for example is the messenger that something feels unfair to us, that we've been wronged in some way. Ultimately, this is telling us that we deserve better! That's a good thing. In fact, underneath anger is always passion- which gives rise to our power. Feeling wronged is actually a reminder that we aren't aligned with our power.
Therein lies the gift. Anger is an opportunity for us to see where we are not using our passion and our power properly. Where we are misaligned with our potency.
My favorite resource for emotional body release and quick transformation is EFT- the Emotional Freedom Technique. If you've worked with me in session or taken any of my classes, you've probably done tapping. It's powerful stuff.
When anger- or any emotion- is intense, I suggest doing a "tap and rant". This means you tap on the EFT points while venting. If you're unsure of the points, just use the heart center. Literally, tap on the center of your chest as you yell and scream! It works!
This Creative Ritual will also help you work directly with your challenges- emotion or otherwise. Take your challenge into your creative process and see what develops!
Movement Exploration. What emotion are you feeling? Is it anger, depression, frustration, chaos, uncertainty? Start dancing this emotion. What does it feel like in your body? Do the "dance of anger" for example. What emerges as you do your anger dance?! Remember to let sounds out! Move and develop your dance for at least minutes. When you feel a sense of closure, ask yourself these questions:
I sense, I feel, I imagine.
Create an image of your emotion. What does it feel like? Put it on paper using colors, textures and shapes. Create an image that expresses your experience with this emotion and whatever emerged in your dance. Spend at least 5 to 20 minutes creating this image. I suggest using paints or craypas and a large piece of paper. Title your image. In your journal or on the back of the drawing answer this question:
If your image could speak what would it say?
Harvesting. Answer these baseline statements and questions in your journal once you have completed the previous steps.
What am I opening to?
What am I closing to?
Recycle this process whenever strong emotions emerge. Remember they arrive to give you important messages. Listen carefully and honor them with deeper listening. What is the emotions telling you? What do you need for deeper nourishment in your life?
