Mystic Fact or Sacred Fragrance? All Wings or all Eyes?

  • ⚔ Kali derives in part from the ancient deity of indigenous Tamil, India named "Kottavai" a warrior goddess. Kottavai rides a tiger, wears a necklace of tiger teeth, and shouts in victory kurava! on the battlefield where she comes to kill, eat flesh and drink blood. Kottavai embodies "ananku" an early conception of "shakti" the dangerous power inherent to the natural world, female humans, and deities. Ananku can be found in the breasts, loins, and genitals of living women, and manifests as both violent and sexual energy. In ancient cultures dramatic possession performances acting out the passionate and violent nature of this supernatural energy were essential to society, and yet always threatened to get out of control. These mother cults of old stress in their literature the importance of women warriors, shamans and oracles in religious life which made central evocation and management of these ambivalent powers through war, bloodshed, sexuality and possession performance. Devotees of Goddess Kottavai included female dancers who accompanied male warriors to battle singing, dancing, and drumming. Rituals performed on the battlefield were considered the most intense confrontation between man and divine, where Goddess Kottavai danced accompanied by a host ghosts and demon women [Sarah Caldwell, Tracing Kali Through Space, Time and Culture]

Beyond the cloud of grief toward Ascension-EZINE

Move beyond the cloud of grief I just did a powerful ritual around making room for the good energy coming into my life. It consisted of sacrificial love. (the type of love where you have to leave something behind in order to bring in the love that we want) In other words transmuting what is leaden in life into what is golden.

I let go of journals that I have had since 2001. (The water element can be as destructive as fire as you can see in the image above) I went from telling the universe I still needed the "cliff notes" on all of the lessons I have learned since 2001 "just incase" to all of the wisdom I need in with me now and easily accessible. Fuggedaboutit! you are the technology you need.

Sometimes just REDUCING stuff is enough.  You don't have to do a total overhaul.  For example I had a jumble of medals and pins I had gained over the years from USOPEN, or track meets, or from some event etc.  They were all tied together and I would always hide them in som…

💥✨ Transmute Negative Energy into Love 💜🌈-Ezine


Retreat Recharge and Heal

I’ve been living in New York for 40 years, it is very easy to get distracted here.
That is why my partner High Prieztezz and I are adamant about retreating into nature annually.
Our Yo!Yogi Retreat helps us focus on self love and prioritizing our health as well as support ourselves and others in scheduling time to focus and recenter.

If you are looking for an opportunity to increase your commitment to daily spiritual hygiene & bodily awareness join us and de-stress on a 10-DAY immersive retreat into the crystalline quartz sand
beaches of sweet, juicy and magical Thailand

The Yo!Yogi retreat is founded upon the theme of transmuting fear and negativity into love. Based on the the archetype of Kali the Hindu Goddess also known as the dark earth mother, and represented through ISIS and the Black Madonna in many areas of the world. During the retreat we facilitate creative problem solving and project development using our Mojo (M.editative O.rganized J.oy O.ptimized)
