Have you been on edge, maybe feeling a little down lately? Are you frustrated trying to find peace? Much of what triggers these emotions is due to the thought loops that cycle through our awareness. These thoughts are constantly in motion — yet we only notice a handful throughout the day. When we do, these thoughts can trigger a pattern of reactions that takes us away from the eternal present, the now.


I teach intuition. It is my belief that intuition is an integral element in our true nature and that it has been trained out of the majority of people through domestication. I also believe that the most direct path to connecting with your intuition is a steady meditation practice. When teaching meditation I realize that I am awakening memories rather than inserting new information. Approaching teaching in this way creates what I perceive as a more grounded understanding of this gift.

You might have explored the chakras in search of ways to tap into your intuition. Many associate the idea…


One of my favorite ways to support and comfort my body and is to eat lightly. I know this seems overly-simplified but it really is an easy way to soothe the body’s systems.

We must become completely honest about how we are feeling and functioning. Sure signs that we are in need of a detox are: Irritability, sleeplessness, and poor digestion.

I find that intermittent fasting is great for this and what seems to give it a boost is to eat a light soup for dinner before the sun sets and to wait a full 16 hours before eating again…


I come from a long line of bathers. My maternal grandmother had an afternoon ritual of soaking in a hot bath and then air drying as she listened to her favorite classical music show on public radio. Though I never got into the afternoon bath ritual I did pick up on the idea of a good soak.

My mother loved baths on cool autumn and winter nights and the pool on hot summer afternoons. Together we would sit in tidal pools by the shore and have long conversations. Sometimes we would visit hot springs together . …


I love slicing into a fresh and perfectly ripened avocado. My favorite variety has bumpy dark green skin and lets me know it is ready when it turns a shade of almost black. Inside the signature green-toned flesh near the skin of the fruit turns to a festive shade of bright yellow-green closer to the large slippery brown seed held in the avocado’s center.

I first discovered avocados when I wanted to learn to grow one as a houseplant at the age of seven. I had read in a magazine that this could be done in a glass of water…


I heard an inspiring story today that was told to a dear friend by a Rabbi. It moved me deeply and I have to share it with you. It went like this:

A little boy was taking piano lessons and went with his mom to see a famous concert pianist by the name Paderewski.

Before the lights dimmed and the concert started…

…the mom was chatting it up with someone in the crowd, while her little boy slipped away and climbed onto the stage.

The little boy found his way to the grand piano, put one of fingers on the…


Many of us use the word meditation as a blanket term to cover practices that though they are adjunct and can launch us into the state of meditation, are separate practices. There are distinct differences between meditation, creative visualization, and mindfulness. Due to the branding of creative visualization as meditation even I gave in and called my creative visualization podcast, Meditate with Ambika. Please don’t think me a hypocrite after reading what I am about to share with you. After all, if I had named it, Creatively Visualize with Ambika, would you know what I was offering to you? …


The Goddess of Nature giving me a sign

Have you ever called out to the Great Goddess who birthed us all and had her respond so clearly and unmistakably that you could not deny your connection? I am talking about Mother Nature, the divine feminine force who birthed the qualities of nature. She always is listening in the vibratory field!

We all are always listening and picking up vibrations from everything that is, as we are all connected by an invisible web. It is important to understand that Mother Nature is here for us, giving signs that are often in whispers with others heard loudly as roars.

I…


The powerful sound of ॐ is commonly written in English Om and what I want to inspire you to do is change the spelling. This is why.

Chanting the sound ॐ AUM has long been practiced as the bridge from struck to un-struck sound. It is a journey that takes us to the other side of our being. Some regard this sound as the vibration of the universe, others the sound of creation, and many the sonic essence of the divine.

In the language of Sanskrit the sound ॐ AUM is known as the Anahata Nada अनाहत नाद which literally…


Chakras are multi dimensional. How can we measure something beyond our dimension in two or three dimensions? We cannot.

Chakras and vital energy

Chakras are psychic centers of transformation. The word Chakra literally means a “wheel” or a disc or any arrangement in a circular organization in the language of Samskritham, संस्कृतं what we in English say Sanskrit. The word chakra implies movement. Therefore we can imagine these energetic areas as having constant fluctuation and movement.

Classically the seven major chakras are depicted as Lotus blossoms, a circular form surrounded by petals. Each lotus has a different amount of petals…
