Yoga and the Buddha Stir Within

My Yoga Journey Begins…

In recent months, my journey has taken me to rediscover my love of yoga and some of its foundational philosophies. Although I am a channel and have access to Divine beings who guide me and my clients, I am always a firm believer in having one foot planted firmly on the ground….

and two hands reaching high to Heaven!

Part of my intention was to be able to integrate my body, go deeper into meditation and channel to create calm, peace and serenity. I do this brilliantly for my clients, but I was feeling the need to be more loving and gift this practice to myself, then share it with others.

I began my yoga journey in my late 20s doing Kundalini Yoga videos with Gurmukhi, with lavish backdrops of Hawaii or cool California studios. Then in 2011, I met Deb Niven, Visionary owner of In the Spirit Yoga studio, where I continued my journey of Hatha yoga, and began doing transformational workshops and retreats with her other company Divine Destination Collection.

Getting busier and doing more channelled hypnosis, healing and spiritual direction with clients and groups in Canada, U.S. and Tuscany, I began to lose sight of my need for physical “groundedness” with stretching, yoga and meditation. My channelling ability and metaphysical focus had me feeling a little lost in the physical world, and missing my yoga practice.

My colleague and co-channel and Full Immersion Into Spirit teacher, Elizabeth Rose, began channelling yoga from the Ascended Master realm, but with her being in New Brunswick and me in Toronto (with a lack of discipline!) I began to seek a practical way I could get started on my yoga path and then integrate this with my more metaphysical practices.

After seeing a notice for the third time (after two years of waiting), I finally picked up the sign and went back to In the Spirit for Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) with LefteriAlexander Petrogiani (Alx) of LifeCosmic.com. This intensive 9 month program includes all the Hatha variations including Kundalini and Yin Yoga (which is really the “tha” in Hatha), a hint of martial arts, and the science, discipline, philosophy and “consciousness of yoga” (including the groundbreaking little known gem, the Chup Sadhana (the Practice of Silence) by Mansoor, and the Bhagavad Gita, the jewel in the yoga crown.  And of course the most important part: practice practice practice!


Inspired by this yoga journey, I also became attracted to Eastern ideas and the life story of the Buddha, Siddharta Gautama (Gautama Buddha). I confess the source was a somewhat cheesy Bollywood looking rendition on Netflix, but don’t be fooled by the overblown acting in some cases, the main actor, Himanshu Soni, gives a captivating and powerful evocation of the Buddha consciousness, which is love and compassion.

Giving up worldly goods and renown, he retreats into the woods and surrenders completely to his path, becoming the epitome of “the middle way” of peace, sacrifice, and service. His love and devotion comes from dedicating himself to something inward rather than outward. And not stopping until Peace is found.

I hear you, Brother!

Although I may never live up to the high standards set for me by my noble and enlightened friends: Buddha, Christ, Babaji, Mahatma Gandhi, Paramahansa Yogananda and more, I will be richly blessed by studying them, hearing whispers of them when I channel, and living life through my lifelong yogic practice.

Who knows, maybe I will be channelling my Beloved Teachers, both physical and non-physical, when I marry my love of channelled healing and metaphysical hypnosis with the science, discipline and mystical art of yoga, becoming grounded like a tree firmly rooted in the West, reaching high to Heaven, God, the Universe and All.

Om Shanti (Peace).  Amen!
