Summer is officially in full swing & the full moon is upon us.

Of course, with the sun in Cancer and the full moon in Capricorn, it’s a great time to harmonize in order to create ‘balance’ & flow.

Besides sharing Yoga and Private Reiki, for the last quarter I’ve taken a bit of a hiatus in order to ground down and
re-connect to my Sacred Center.

Some of the ways I’ve been connecting to my heart light include, dance- which is PURE medicine for the Soul. I’ve also been frequenting a boat load of Kirtans and I’ve even taken up the drums!

Nothing like movement and music to get you into the flow~

If you haven’t already, I want to encourage you to carve out some much needed, ‘me time’ for yourself to do what inspires you, lights you up and nourishes your Soul.


Whatever you do, don’t forget to give yourself permission to PLAY.

As always, there are plenty of ways to connect…

A couple weeks ago I shared a video on Reiki. In today’s video I share a self-healing practice that you can begin to integrate into your daily routine to help bring you a greater sense of vitality and wellbeing.

This self-healing practice not only promotes good health but is also easy to learn. It can be practiced first thing in the morning to jumpstart your day, mid-day to help you re-charge your battery, or at night to help you power down and relax into a peaceful, restful sleep.

Ready to experience the benefits of this practice first hand? Roll out your Yoga mat, grab your meditation pillow, or find a comfy seat in a chair with your feet planted on the ground; press play, sit back and enjoy!

Finally, as a reminder, don’t forget to join me for Reiki Level I Training & Certification
on Sunday, September 8, 2013 at BellaVita Wellness Center in Manhattan from 12pm-7pm.

Seating is limited. To register, click here.

See you there!

With Love & Light,


Recently my colleague, Klay Williams and I launched Life Cafe w/ Alana & Klay. To kick off this live, 4-week, interactive series we discussed relationships. We spoke about the various types of relationships and how our insecurities, fears, and judgments show up in these relationships. We also spoke about the most important relationship- the relationship with the self.

As someone who has struggled in the past to nurture my own relationship with myself, I can’t stress enough how important it is to show up for yourself, to love yourself, and to learn how to fully accept yourself for who you are.

How do you begin to cultivate a deeper-more loving relationship with yourself?


Be honest with yourself about all the ways you aren’t so loving and kind to yourself. No, I’m not suggesting that you beat yourself up in any way but I am suggesting that you get really clear about how you’re going to start making YOU a priority in your life.


Honoring and respecting yourself isn’t just about carving out time for yourself and being disciplined about making you a priority in your life, honoring and respecting yourself means fully embracing and accepting yourself for who you are. That means bringing your true, authentic self to the party.


Giving yourself permission to make YOU a sacred priority in your life is the first step. Yes, it can be a challenge to acknowledge your value and self-worth, especially if you weren’t raised with a strengthened sense of either. There are plenty of tools I offer my clients to help strengthen their capacity to acknowledge their innate goodness but the truth is it takes time and practice.


Carving out quality time to explore your passions and interests is vital. Engaging in activities that nourish your mind, body, and Spirit brings you a greater sense of vitality, joy, peace, love, fulfillment, and wellbeing.


No one wants to feel like they’re being pressured to do or be anything other than who they are. Letting go of expectations creates a space that allows yourself and others to be authentic and real.

Remember, relationships are our greatest teachers- they mirror our innermost thoughts, feelings and beliefs about ourselves. As we grow to honor, love, AND accept ourselves for who we are, our capacity to honor, love, and accept others grows too. May all your relationships reflect the Divine goodness that exists within you. Sending you all my love.

With Love & Light,
