Live Light

Everything is already okay. Pause. Breathe and repeat to yourself “Everything is already awesome”. (Add a smile and you’ll feel instantly better.)


Rabbit Rabbit









When studying psychology in college my professor on the first of every month would begin his lecture with ‘rabbit rabbit’. It is said that if you say ‘rabbit rabbit’ before anything else on the first of the month you will have good luck for the entire month.
Rabbit Rabbit is also a way for you to take a moment and acknowledge the start of a new month and check in with your intentions for the year. 2013 began a month ago and now is a great time to see if you are still inline with your intentions and who you want to be this year.

Live Light Practice:

If you wrote down your intention for the year take it out and sit in front of it, and if not remind yourself of what your intention was. Sit quietly for a moment and reflect on your intention.

Do you feel aligned with it? Have you been true to your intention for the past month? What can you do for yourself to allow the intention to easily be a part of your life?

What is one small thing you can do today that is inline with your intention?


Happy New Year

Another year has passed, one full of ups and downs. Before the clock strikes midnight, take time to reflect on 2012 and clear what no longer serves you. By reviewing what went well and what didn’t go so well in the past year, you can shrug off anything weighing you down and feel lighter in the new year.

Live Light Practice:

Take out a journal and review the following questions before you go out celebrating another year gone by:

What are your favorite highlights of 2012?
What from this year makes you smile when you think of it?
What are you most proud of this year?
What do you wish went differently in 2012?
What do you want to leave behind?

Keeping all of your reflections in mind, create an intention that you will keep for 2013. Write it on a piece of paper and keep it in your wallet or some place you’ll see on a daily basis.

Wishing you a healthy and joyful new year!




Bring in the new year with Ganesha












Ganesha is an elephant-headed deity that is worshiped in India and many parts of the world. Daily routines, opening of new businesses, the start of a journey, and even an exam are preceded by a prayer to Ganesha. It is felt that he is the remover of all obstacles and before all endeavors it is important to seek Ganesha’s blessing first.

Live Light Practice:

Begin the new year by chanting this Ganesha mantra to yourself or out loud for 5-10 minutes each morning:

om gam ganapataye namaha

(I offer my love and devotion to Sri Ganesha; please grant me success in my noble endeavor)
