The thymus gland is located in the chest - part of the immune system - produces T cells responsible for fighting off disease, and is adversely affected by stress
Air expands into space, it reaches out, it makes connections
Air connects all living beings on our planet
Air delivers prana, it is the wave prana rides into the body on
Air moves in all directions at once
The Air element expresses itself as self love, self acceptance, being at home in your skin

What is my Light Body and Why Would I Want to Activate it?
Your light body is your soul light, soul body.
The YOU inside of YOU, that shines out into the world.
The light body is your joy, your radiance, your luminous self, your life force.
Activating your light body, infuses your form with a kind of light that is self sustaining.
That emanates from deep within.
It puts a spring in your step, it raises your mood and lifts your spirits.
It brings you inspiration and liveliness.
As Yoda said, “luminous Beings are we, not this crude matter”
Your light body is
What lights you up??
What excites you?
What makes you feel joyfully alive?
What lifts your mood when you are feeling dark?
What guides your way?
These are things that feed and nourish your light body.
You are a multi-dimensional being.
You are human embodied, form of earth.
You are also so much more…
You are a field of energy
You are made of living light
All the information of your body mind soul field is vibration and energy
The frequencies of life are encoded in your DNA
Your DNA transmits and receives light codes via bio-photons
Your LightBody is projected by your DNA
Your LightBody is your holographic reality
You create and recreate your own reality every day, every moment via your light body.
Imagine yourself as this light bulb.
Your light is like your sixth sense.
It is what allows you to see, through all time and space.
The 5 base elements of life are
Earth Water Fire Air Space/Ether
Light is the 6th Element
In a light bulb:
The earth is the wire, the housing, the tangible physical parts
The water is the current that flows through the earth parts (the wire)
The fire is the heat that is generated by this flow
The air is the magnetic field that the current flow produces
The space is the glass, that contains and holds the whole thing
The Light – is what shines forth from the bulb, it is the luminous part – the sixth element or feature.
In short, your light body is the radiant part of you that is joyful, and delighted to be alive. Activating and Illuminating Your Light Body is a way to play the game of life with deLIGHT, joy and happiness. Isn’t that what we all want? To be happy, to be in free flow of life?
Multi Dimensional YOU
What does it mean to be multi-dimensional?
It means to be multi layered, with many bands of frequency or “levels” of existence that you can see and operate from. Different dimensions are different bandwidths of frequency. It means you exist as and in multiple dimensions and realities simultaneously.
The ancient yogis referred to these layers as sheaths or koshas, progressively subtler “bodies” all interconnected and multilayered within and around each other.
I have two great analogies – the light bulb and the expandable cup.
You as Light Bulb
A light bulb can provide a working means of multi D mapping.
EARTH: The tangible parts (the metal parts and housing, the wire)
WATER: The electricity running through the wires, the flow
FIRE: The heat that is produced by this electron flow
AIR: The atmosphere/air inside/field of influence – the magnetic field the flow produces
SPACE/ETHER: The glass bulb housing - what contains and holds
LIGHT: The light that emanates from this is you, your soul light
You as light bulb exist as all of these parts simultaneously. You cannot isolate or individuate one as “you”, and your makeup is all of them at once. Sum of parts make your whole.
You as Expandable Cup
Have you ever used a collapsible fold up camping cup? It looks like the above image.
You can think of each of the rings as one of your “sheaths”. You need all of you’re your layers or rings to make it so that you hold the liquid (the prana, the life-force, the liquid light).
Concentric “Rings” that hold your experience and being-ness. You need all of these layers to be complete, you cannot be just one layer or ring at a time, as all of your liquid/life force would drain away and spill.
You are in the EARTH plane – you have a body, you have tangible form, you are solid and structured.
You exist in the flow state – you are like WATER, like Liquid, you move and flow through time and space, your emotions are energy in motion. You feel, you sense, you experience through your senses.
You are FIRE light and color, spark and movement. Heat, friction that the movement of the flow state produces.
You are AIR – magnetics of your breath, your lungs and heart beat. You are magnetic fields within magnetic fields, torus within torus.
You are SPACE/ETHER – you contain and hold all. You are created by sound, you are the song of life, and musical notes of the universe.
You are LIGHT – you are Soul, you are YOU, your light emanates and shines, you are joy.

Balance Your Energy Flow with the Five Vayus
The Five Vayus – The Winds of Life – Energy Currents
Prana is life force, the primal and vital energy of life. Prana is the animating intelligence of the universe. Creation flows or breathes this force into every living being. Prana follows patterns and flows in ways we can learn and master. Just as the earth has streams and rivers and oceans that circulate the planet’s water, and the atmosphere has streams that direct air flow and drive weather patterns and moisture in the atmosphere, your body and energy field has currents of air and prana and energy flow that you can actively work with to embody balance.
Just by learning about these flow directions, and bringing your awareness to how they move energy thru your body and field already is creating balance within. You can also use pranayama (energy aligning breathing techniques) and visualizations to direct these currents for smooth free balanced flow.
Prana (life-force) can be subdivide into 5 constituent flows with distinct directions and characteristics. Ayurveda calls these the Vayus (the Winds).
Prana-Vayu flows in and upward
Apana-Vayu flows down and outward
Vyana-Vayu flows from core to periphery (center to edge, centrifugal)
Samana-Vayu flows from the periphery to the core (edges to the center- centripetal)
Udana- Vayu flows all around, swirling whirling spirals
Here is a diagram to show these flowing current patterns….
(note the color code of above list to the picture)
Currently, in Spring of 2018, we are under some heavy influences of wind. There have been storms and blowing currents and intense weather throughout the planet most of March and April. And currently there is a solar wind blowing from the sun towards earth. We live in a constant influx of media and information. All of these are having a cumulative effect of overly activating the Prana-Vayu (pictured in purple).
An over excited updraft of Prana-vayu can lead to: - increase of anxiety, swirling thoughts and an overactive mind, trouble settling the mind down at the end of the day, trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. Headaches, jaw stiffness and pain, teeth “stuff” (esp molars), sinus pressure, pressure behind the eyes, vision fluctuations, frayed and wiry nervous system – generalized feelings and ungrounded-ness and trouble settling yourself.
We can balance out this tendency in many ways. Therapeutically, we would target both soothing out and softening the over predominance of the “updraft”, along with opening the downward flow in the Apana-Vayu channels – to help you ground, soothe and get steady. We need to give the “extra” energy that is flowing up and out a pathway down and in for balance.
Here is a list of some of my favorites and most easy to use and effective techniques…
To pacify and soothe an overactive Prana-Vayu
- Keep yourself warm, keep your feet warm, use hats, scarves, shawls on your head and neck/shoulders
- Eye pillow, to rest the eyes and relax the muscles, warm eye pillow even better
- Enjoy periods of quiet with minimal stimulation (avoid TV, media, reading etc esp right before bedtime)
- Warm baths, self massage with oil, eating a bit more healthy fat (avocados, healthy oils) – keep yourself lubricated
- Warm beverages (tea, lemon water, spiced chai minus caffine)
And, then we stimulate the Apana-Vayu to open the channels of “down and out”:
- Foot massages, rolling a ball under soles of feet, grounding feet to earth
- Self massage or use of balls on the Marma points at top of shoulders, top of thighs, sole of feet
- Thigh stretches, particularly ones that focus on seating the head of the thigh bone deeper into the hip socket. Forward bends, standing poses, restorative yoga poses, Constructive Rest position.
- creating ceremony to release unwanted thoughts and energy patterns
If you would like some personalized advice and assistance getting your mind clear and balanced, and getting grounded and steady, an Inner Space Journey is a great way to balance the 5 Vayus, give yourself a spring tune up, and ensure your energy and inner wind currents are flowing smoothly.
I am also offering a classes on April 15 at Inner Space called "Ground on Down" to hold space and offer tools and techniques for balancing the 5 vayus, specifically opening the Apana-Vayu. There is a class in person, and an online version so everyone who wants to participate can connect in.

Hridayam - The I AM Center - The high Heart
Greeting Friends and Light Beings!
I am writing to you today to talk about the current energetic gateway into the heart. I have been feeling for myself an increased activation of the cosmic heart center. This heart space has been called the Spiritual Heart, the Universal Heart, the high heart.
The month of January was very active for incoming energy codes and information to planet earth. The moons and then the partial solar eclipse at the end of the month completed a cycle that began last August with that solar eclipse. The light that is streaming in now activates us to this universal cosmic heart energy space.
I myself have been experiencing both energetic and physical awareness of this. Some of which include tingling in the skull, in the ears, down the neck into the back wall of the ribcage, scapula and heart – some tingling in the fingers and a feeling of energetic fullness in the nadis down my arm and in the pocket of the elbow and in the wrist as well as the knuckles of my left index finger. How you feel and experience this will be unique and all your own. I share my experience of it not as a map but as a door opener for you to recall how this has flowed through you.
As those of us who teach or work with clients or hold space for families or workplaces know – the folks that come on your path have a way of reflecting and mirroring back the pattern from other perspectives. Back in the days where I was running a yoga studio it always delighted us to compare notes at the end of the week, and see that many of us had taught a similar sequence or chose the same pinnacle poses for classes that week. We were tapping into that collective stream of consciousness to determine what movements would align and benefit us the most at that time of season and under that energy.
Likewise I have been blessed to work with clients the last few weeks who are also delving into the sacred space of the heart. I pay close attention to threads that show us feedback from the collective consciousness. The high heart is calling us – and I have spent time opening and re-opening my own personal embodied gateway to this space. I have researched and synthesized some information from a variety of sources. I present it to you below for your use and illumination.
In hridaya love,
Hridayam – The High Heart
Activating the emerald jewel of the inner heart gate
We are currently in a time of high heart chakra awakening
The events of the outer world are driving each of us to a choice point
What are we going to hold vibrationally deep within the magnetic torus field pump of the heart? If the events of the world send your energy outward, to what is wrong and how to take up a battlefield posture, you will dwell in the realms of fear and scarcity, of anxiety and dread
The darkness will be encroaching and the pull will engulf you
You have the choice to use the outer darkness to blanket you while you soften into the inner core of your own heart. Using your human heart as the doorway, you move in to deeper and deeper layers of self, through your inner space into the sacred heart, the secret heart.
The tantric Himalayan masters spoke about the hridayam, the high heart. The lotus within the lotus. The Hridaya linguistically breaks down into hrid = center and ayam = this or “I am”. So, your Hridayam is your I AM CENTER.
I will offer some of the scholarly and ancient writings for reference, but as slways the best way for you to gather information is from your own experience, your own body and energy field. I just recorded a intro to using Sanskrit bija mantras (seed sounds) to bring yourself to the spaces of the heart. Sanskrit is a vibrational language, and just hearing and more potently making yourself the sounds will bring you right to the vibrational state and frequency.
The Human Heart Center (Anahata) is accessed via the sound YAM (pronounced yum)
The I AM Center (Hridaya) is accessed via the sound HRIM (pronounced hreem)
The sage Ramana Maharishi called the Hridayam *
“the seat and source of consciousness, identical with the Self, the very Core of one’s being, the Center, without which there is nothing whatsoever”. The Hridayam is that which attracts everything to itself; it is the place where the “ultimate Divine” dwells in each human. Light originates here and then flows upward to the crown chakra and down to the other energy centers. It is not an organ nor does it correspond with one, It is pure consciousness, beyond space and time, transcending the Mind. The Heart is the Self, - the Heart, which is pure consciousness, includes everything; it is indivisible”
*Sourced from Richard Leviton’s book The Emerald Modem: A User’s Guide to Earth’s Interactive Energy Body
In the writings of by T. K. Sundaresa Iyer we read,**
"Just as there is a cosmic center from which the whole universe arises and has its being and functions with the power or the directing energy emanating therefrom, so also is there a center within the frame of the physical body wherein we have our being. This center in the human body is in no way different from the cosmic center. It is this center in us that is called the Hridaya, the seat of Pure Consciousness, realized as Existence, Knowledge and Bliss. This is really what we call the seat of God in us. It is this Hridaya that is said to be different from the physical heart, regulating the blood circulation. The Hridaya has its being on the right side and is not commonly known or felt. The primary thought in us arising as 'I,' when traced to its source, ends somewhere in us and this place, where all thoughts die, where the ego has vanished, is the Hridaya. From this center is felt and enjoyed the Pure Consciousness.
Hridaya described as 'the literal, actual, physical seat of the intuition of the Self' has the meaning explained above. Perhaps the words 'physical seat' may create some confusion. What it really means is that there is a center of Pure Consciousness in the physical body. It is related to the physical, but is not itself physical.
The word Hridaya is a composite of hrid and ayam - "center, this". It is the center on the right, which we reach as a result of meditation (Samadhi). From the Hridaya, consciousness arises to the sahasrara through the sushumna and from there spreads out to all the parts of the body through the several 'nadis'. Then alone we become conscious of the objects around us. Man, due to the illusion that these have real existence, experiences suffering, as he strays far away from his Self. The seat from where all these arise and manifest is the Hridaya.”
