#FridayFeeling#mindfulness “Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience. It isn’t more complicated than that. It is opening to or receiving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is, without either clinging to it or rejecting it.” ~Sylvia Boorstein

The beautiful and talented @sirgunkaurmusic at Bhakti Fest ⭐️ Join us in welcoming her back to the stage at Shakti Fest in May! Early bird ticket pricing still available 🙏
I used to get debilitating stage fright. My heart would pound, my stomach would get tied into knots, my breath would shorten. And as a result, I would fail to produce a pleasing sound, judge myself for it... which provided more evidence for stage fright the next time! It was not a productive cycle! Last week I sang in front of 1,000 people with @snatamkaurkhalsa with no stage fright. And I never get scared when I’m about to #chant at my own concerts. Why? Because I stopped thinking of #singing as a way to prove myself or my #worth. I connect and I allow sound to come through me. People don’t come to my concerts to hear “ME”, they come to be taken on a #journey that I can support them in. I had forgotten about my #stagefright until yesterday. ✨✨What a nice thing to be #free of! ✨✨ Photo by Jake J Thomas, taken at #bhaktifest

Little preview of “Shallow Pool” from SATURN RETURN. Just got some beats from Luis (aka Uji) down in Argentina and sounding so good.
This song was written in the peak of despair and confusion during my own journey in my late 20s. I was lucky enough to have my brother Sanjay around when I was feeling the most down. Tribe is so important on this road... if you don’t feel like you have it, find it. If you can’t find it, BE it for someone else and you’ll have it. As my fiancé @alicefulks says quite often, “All ships rise.” Meaning: as momentum builds beneath us, or we help someone else to create their own momentum, everyone in the tribe rises. Everyone is elevated. Anyway, that’s my speech for the day, maybe I’m Loco! But the song is pretty good!!
More to come... :)

#ThursdayThoughts from the ever-wise @babaramdass ・
Feel the breeze on your face or your neck? See how it’s going by? You’re not all hung up with it. You don’t have to see where each breeze goes. You don’t have to look quickly to see if it hit those trees over there. It’s the breezes, and they’re just going by. Make your thoughts like those breezes, those little breezes…just going by.

“The hard season will split you through.
Do not worry
You will bleed water
Do not worry
This is grief
Your face will fall out and down your skin
And there will be scorching
But do not worry
Keep speaking the years from their hiding places
Keep coughing up smoke from all the deaths you have died
Keep the rage tender
Because the soft season will come.
It will come
Both hands in your chest
Up all night
Up all of the nights
To drink all the damage into Love.” - Nayyirah Waheed

People are gonna stare; might as well make it worth while! When she first came to Mojave Mami's for a fill from elsewhere we had to send her away bc her extensions and natural lashes were glued and matted together. All we could do was remove them and set her Full Set appointment for a few weeks later to give her natural lashes time to grow. She used to get purple blended with black at her old so we made sure to have purple in stock when she came back 💜💜 Are there any other colors that YOU would want to try?

When I started taking yoga I thought oh perfect. Lose Weight. Get thin. That was literally the only thought. Never in a million years did I think I would take it this far. It has been the biggest surprise and the biggest blessing in the world to have studied these teachings and now having heard the most beautiful things ever said, (in my humble opinion) to be able to repeat these things to other people who need to hear them.. it kinda feels like a lottery ticket.

✨3 days left on Saturn Return Indiegogo fundraising campaign! Tribe (that's YOU) have been incredibly supporting. We're at $5500 now! If you haven't donated, and want to, now's the time! Link to donate in bio ⤴️
Here's my homecooked version of "Touch Down", a song that will definitely be on the new record. This song has profound meaning for me and really represents getting to the other side of the tunnel, after going through the really, really not fun stuff... and feeling whole, satisfied and ready to take over the world! Check it out brothas & sistas
************************** Big shout out to @swipewright@akhalsa108@lauraslataper@foolonfire@jasminetommaso@doctordoubleu
and all those who donated anonymously for being rockstars and supporting this creation! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! ⚡💖💥⚡

✨Heads up!! This came together sort of last minute when I was talking with my friends @strike.a.kjord and @satsiri about my new album SATURN RETURN! I’ll be blessed to preview some of my new songs and even a mantra or two at their dope event at Wanderlust this evening. All details at wanderlusthollywood.com
5:30pm, Kundalini Yoga, live music, healthy foods after
✨A big part of coming out the other side of my own Saturn Return was finding my Tribe. It keeps growing deeper and wider and I’m continually blown away by the AWESOMENESS of you all. Thanks for being in my life!! It’s a total game changer.

Possible album cover candidate for Saturn Return, shot by Robert Matt, a fantastic visual artist I met in Palm Springs. I think it captures the elements of hope, despair, surrender and resolve that are the central themes in my music. We still need your support to make the album as awesome as I know it can be. Click the link in my bio for the IndieGoGo campaign.
Making music is my heart and soul. It's the place where I find connection to Source, to myself, to power, to healing, to love, to raw emotion. In the last 6 years I've gone through more change than any other time in my life. My family fell apart, my band unraveled, I left home, lost my passion, moved to LA, went to Burning Man, left a tribe, found a new one, fell in love, moved to Joshua Tree, went through the fire, and came out the other side.
The music I plan to make on my new album Saturn Return is a testimony to that beautiful & challenging journey. I want to make this record as a sonic companion to anyone who who has gone through —or is going through—huge shifts in their life! Check out the link in my bio for the album’s IndieGoGo campaign.
