Four Desires


Four Desires

Dharma - purpose - not your job! What you bring with in everything you do. Macro dharma is what you can’t control. Micro - what you can control. Where do I fit in?

Artha - manifestation of Dharma. Learn your dharma

  • Learn your dharma + learn to love it

Kama - Joy or pleasure

Moksha - liberation or freedom. How free do you feel at any given moment to make choices. How many options do I have? This comes through meditation - Meditation creates spaciousness

2 different kinds of Sankalpa:

1.) Defined. measurable in the next 6-18 months attainable

2.) Quality you are trying to cultivate Ex: I feel self love everyday.ex (love)

I can

I will

I must…     

*You already have all the tools you need. Your just uncovering

I can meditate, I will meditate, I must meditate,

I can act with love, I will act with love, I must act with love!

Departure point. A departure point is something that pulls you away.  For example: social media.  Set a departure point and choose to have freedom.  For example limit yourself to one hour of social media then break at one hour and repeat your Sankalpa.

Past → Present → Future

Your past creates your future because you were not present. How much time do YOU actually spend in the now? If you are always caught up in your mind and in your story, you are not here an present… the thoughts and stories you are wrapped up in become your future because you are manifesting them on an energetic level.

  • You will begin a 40 day Sankalpa practice with mind mapping each day and journaling. You will coincide this with a yoga nidra practice.  This practice will  plant seeds in the subconscious mind and it works 100% of the time. 

Lets begin to BE the change we wish to see in our OWN lives! Only then will the world truly change. What we think, we attract. Focus on integrating your desires into your cellular beliefs!

Sankalpa: How to till the ground and watch your seeds come into fruition


San - highest or best

Kalpa - A vow or a rule that we make/follow above all else to fulfill our highest purpose.

A sankalpa is something in which there is no doubt that it will be accomplished., because it is your highest purpose. This requires tilling the ground and fertilizing before planting the seed.

Vasana- Your inner coloring, a pull or stirring toward something. We act on this pull or stirring.

Karma - Action. Karma is actually is simply taking action. Many people view karma as the reaction.


Samskara - a groove or pattern. This groove or pattern is created by the inner pull (vasana) that you contain. In order to change your actions (samskara) you must change your vasana (this is your inner coloring)

This is where you ask yourself: “what lessons am I truly tired of learning?”

Sankalpa: Two different kinds up Sankalpa.

1. defined, measurable in the next 6-18 months. Something that is attainable.

2. quality that you are trying to cultivate. An example is “I feel self love every day.”

How to write a Sankalpa.




Begin to write a Defined Sankalpa. Something you can achieve in the next 6-18 months. This is something tangible, defined and measurable.


Alkalizing Lifestyle Tips For Hashimoto’s Hypothyroidism

  • Engage in regular, weight-bearing exercise.

  • Eat a diet strong in alkalizing vegetables and fruits.

  • Use positive stress management techniques such as yoga, meditation, laughter, qigong, and walking.

  • Deep breathing reduces stress and increases the rate at which carbon dioxide is released from the body, reducing acidity.

  • Go Organic: pesticides are acid-forming.

  • Make the change gradually:  If you think a quick switch will be stressful or set you up for failure, begin  making the transition slowly over a matter of weeks.

  • Adequate dietary Vitamin D levels may help with absorption of calcium, magnesium and phosphate, which can help with acid/alkaline balance. Most populations in northern climates are deficient in vitamin D, so getting tested may be a good idea for you.  Vitamin D drops are the best for absorbtion.

Remember, the big picture is what matters; balancing diet, exercise, and lifestyle will provide you with the best tools for maintaining a healthy pH balance in your body and better managing your Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism.

Kidney filtration

Learn the  importance of kidney filtration! Your kidneys filter out all acid waste from the body. When your kidneys are not filtering, this is when "acidosis "occurs in the body.  Acidosis is the cause of all "dis-ease" such as inflammatory symptoms, diseases, autoimmune disorders and cancer.

Do you Have a Healthy gut?

Understanding Digestion & the Important Role of Salt and HCL production in digestion:
Betaine HCL:
Do you have low hydrochloric acid? Betaine hydrochloride is also known as hydrochloric acid (HCL) or stomach acid. It helps digest food by breaking up proteins and fats. The low pH of the stomach’s HCL also destroys ingested bacteria and other microorganisms. Adequate levels of HCL are necessary for the absorption of protein, calcium, vitamin B-12 and iron.
Healthy stomach acid is needed for a healthy digestive tract. If you have low stomach acid, even the best food and especially protein foods cannot be properly digested. If you are unable to absorb nutrients properly, this can lead to terrible health problems. Healthy stomach acid helps kill disease-causing microbes and parasites routinely found in your food that you eat. If you have low stomach acid, these infecting invaders may not be destroyed by your stomach’s acid bath. They can then cause many types of infections. Now you can see why low stomach acid (hypochlorhydria) is associated with so many common health problems. If these infections are not cleared, over time they can cause many symptoms, paving the way for full-blown diseases.

What are the signs that my gut may be unhealthy?

Common Symptoms of Low Hydrochloric Acid:
Bloating or belching, especially after eating
Burning in the stomach, especially after eating
Fullness or heaviness in the stomach after eating.
Nausea after eating or taking supplements
Intestinal Gas
Bad Breath
Food allergies
Itching around the rectum
Diarrhea or constipation
Weak or cracked fingernails
Dilated blood vessels in the cheeks or nose (in non-alcoholics) Skin break-outs or acne
Iron deficiency
Systemic parasites (very common today)
Chronic intestinal parasites
Food allergies
Undigested food in the stool
Recurring colds and flus
Chronic candida infections
Dysbiosis (overgrowth of unhealthy intestinal bacteria) Deficiencies in many nutrients especially B-12; Calcium; Iron Gum & Tooth infections

Fat Burning Super foods

Here is the thing.  Fat has gotten a bad wrap.  Truth, Fat does not make you fat!  Carbs and sugar do.  Eating Whole natural healthy fats can actually help you loose weight!  Yes, eat more fat and loose more fat!  Here is a list of some fat burning super foods.

-Avocados: filled with monounsaturated fat and 11-17 grams of fiber.  Avocado is actually proven to spot reduce belly fat!

-Nuts/seeds:  Nuts and seeds are a great snack filled with healthy fat, protein and omega 3 fatty acids.  The healthiest nuts are pistachios, walnuts, almonds, cashews , pumpkin seeds and flax seeds.

-Veggies: Spinach, Broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, kale and cabbage are all super fat burning veggies.  They are filled with phytonutrients (130 Indole 3-carbinol) these fight against environmental estrogens that can add belly fat.  They help fight free radicals and promote muscle building. Not to mention that you can eat as many veggies as you want because they are filled with fiber and at most a measly 25 calories per serving! 

-Hot Peppers: Chili peppers contain a compound called capsaicin the heats up the body internally and helps you burn excess calories.  Add fresh chili's and cayenne pepper to soups,  or any salad or meal. 

Low glycemic fruits: - Berries; cherries, blueberries, raspberries and gojiberries are the healthiest berries in the world.  Cherries are the lowest on the glycemic index but all berries are good.  Filled with fiber and protein they help regulate blood sugar and curb sugar cravings. Grapefruit is also among the super foods.  It lowers insulin, regulates blood sugar and metabolism.  Be sure to eat the fleshy white membranes!

Gluten free grains:- Quinoa is really the only "grain-like" food I recommend. In small  amounts can help prevent the body from storing fat.  Quinoa is a super grain that is a complete protein on its own and is filled with essential amino acids.

Beans and Legumes: Beans and legumes are packed with protein and fiber.  They help burn fat, build muscle and regulate digestion, plus they are very filling! Beans can be acid forming so be sure balance your meal with high alkaline foods.  Lots of fruit throughout the day and extra veggies when you choose to consume beans.
