Happy New Year of Mastery!


Happy New Year!

Have you gotten used to writing “2015” yet?

I’m actually enjoying this number.

It feels fresh and clean.

And with the brisk weather here, and bright white snow outside, well, we are sparkling!

So, here’s a little overview of my intention for The Yoga of Alignment (YOFA) for this year, and it includes you.

Inner Guidance

We all know about Law of Attraction. But knowing about Law of Attraction is like knowing about gravity. It doesn’t make you an Olympic gymnast. Those people who seem to fly through the air not only know about gravity, they have mastered their interaction with it.

I want you to not only know about Law of Attraction, I want you to reach a level of mastery. And that’s all about inner guidance. So this is going to be the context of much of what I offer this year. It’s about becoming masterful in the living of your life by tuning in so closely to your inner guidance that you kind of fly though your life.

Watch the blog or the podcast for short videos that help you find your way as you train yourself into alignment with your essence, and as you work with the book Rooted in the Infinite.

Keep watching for ways that it all leads back to you gaining greater and greater access to your inner guidance.


The guitar that’s hanging on the wall of my bedroom is the guitar I bought back in the 1960’s on the same day I went to see the original production of Hair on Broadway. Haha. Ok, so now you know a few things about me.

  1. I’m old.
  2. I’ve been playing guitar for a really long time (even if you can't tell by my playing!) and
  3. Music has been a big part of my life way before YOFA ever existed.

And now music is about to become a big part of YOFA.

Music, as we use it for affirmative contemplation, has the power to bypass the self sabotaging mental patterns of conflict that keep us stuck in patterns that don't serve us.

Music has the power to lift us into a new vibration that tunes you to your essence. And Music has the power to bring you into alignment with all that you desire so that you live the life that makes your soul smile.

I posted the first YOFA chant to Youtube as a holiday offering, but this chant is good to use all year round. You can still download it at http://yofa.net/journey

And in fact, it is one of the chants in the upcoming inner guidance training I’m working on. (This thing is taking me way longer than I thought it would — so it’s not going to be available for another little while) Anyway, since that program is going to have chant as a part of it, and since the program is taking so long to get ready, I leaked out this song so you can get a sense of the chant energy that’s becoming a bigger and bigger part of the Yoga of Alignment experience.

I’ll tell you more about all of this soon, but I really just wanted to give you a context for our new year together and I want to thank you for your interest in my work, for your participation in my programs, and for receiving my offerings with such an open heart. It means the world to me.

Happy New Year!


Bring Your Light Forward

Light and shadow bring a richness to your life, you feel more compassion for yourself, you even begin to appreciate your weaknesses.  It's all a result of coming into alignment with your essence.  Use the affirmation I Love being Me to get this going.


  1. The "I Love Being Me" Affirmative Contemplation is part of a collection called I Am Love.
  2. Develop your inner alignment on your own with the book Rooted in the Infinite.
  3. You can also join the YOFA jhe Sessions and receive 8 remote inner alignment session each month.


Appreciating Every Phase of the Journey

Nonphysical energy vortices are constantly on a journey toward manifestation.  When we have a desire and it is still nonphysical, we call it unfulfilled.  When the energy of the desire has found its way into form, we call that a manifestation.

In the process of inner alignment  you discover a wealth of appreciation for every phase of the journey.  You love the unfulfilled desire and you love the manifestation.  This generates a field of joy and a flow in life that you can count on.

Develop your inner alignment on your own with the book Rooted in the Infinite.

You can also join the YOFA jhe Sessions and receive 8 remote inner alignment session each month.

Circle the Globe with Love and Light

I created this chant for the upcoming "Inner Guidance Revealed" program, but it's simply not ready yet.  I always forget that these things take longer than I expect to get all the pieces in place.

This inner guidance program is the first of my trainings that will actually include some of my music and I'm excited about this new energy in my work.  I've been wanting to include music in the YOFA experience for a long time now.

But it wasn't ready.

And now that it is flowing, I didn't want to wait for the inner guidance training to be complete before I released at least one of the songs.

So here is the "Journey" chant, offered as a holiday card, from me to you.  

Thanks for all the emails I've been getting! I'm so glad you guys like the chant!  You can also leave comments here or directly on YouTube.  Thanks, and Happy Holidays!


Today's YOFA jhe Session 08-29-2014

I did a YOFA jhe Session for members today.

This session enhances your physical strength, health*, stability, and resourcefulness.

Often when we focus on what we usually call “healing,” we are focused on that healing to alleviate a painful, difficult, or otherwise unwanted condition in the physical body.

Here we are involved in a slightly different angle on the healing trail.

Your physical body is the earth of your personal world. It is the dense, solid, structural aspect of the multidimensional being that you are.

If you look at the earth, you can see it having many functions in our universe. It is our foundation and support. It is the medium in which all the seeds of the plant life on our planet grow. This is, of course, the foundation of our own lives. Many would call our earth “mother.”

So when you see your body as the representative of the earth element in your personal system, you can see that we want to engage with it in a way that goes way beyond alleviating pain. We want it to be robust and vital for its own sake. We want the earth of our bodies to generate a successful and fruitful and joyful experience in all the flowering of all other aspects of our lives.

That’s what this session promotes: a strong, vital, stable, fruitful, joyful physical experience as you live in your body.

In your relationships, this can show up as others seeing you as particularly beautiful, like a richly colored painting. Image people look at you and they see something like a Gauguin paining (if you like Gauguin). You glow with beauty.

In your finances this session accentuates the value within you and that begins attracting more prosperity to your already existing many points of value. Sort of like in the spring, when you think a bush is dead from the harsh winter, then little by little, new branches sprout from many different locations. Your financial shrubbery has many nodes from which to spring new streams of income and abundance.**

I invite you to contemplate these notions and soak yourself in the good feeling of your physical body, beautiful, joyful, strong.

Love and Blessings,

Learning About Law of Attraction from Cary Grant


Dig deep into this 7 minute audio training (above) and you can change your life.  

In this episode of "Quick Tips for Manifesting Your Heart's Desire: Bite Sized Applications of Law of Attraction" let's draw a powerful lesson on Law of Attraction from the comedians on the Ed Sullivan Show as they do impressions of Cary Grant.

Law of Attraction in Daily Life: 3 Ways to Deal with Negative People and Stay Uplifted

Dealing with negative people: This seems to be one of the biggest challenges for those who are working with Law of Attraction.

After all, It’s a whole unique skill you’re developing: to mind your vibration.  It really is a practice.  You’re busy paying attention to your inner guidance and you keep modulating your vibration to bring yourself into greater and greater joy.  Or maybe to simply bring yourself up from despair or upset.

Either way, you’re working on it, right?

And maybe you’re chugging along, feeling better, little by little, and then boom.  You encounter someone who is giving their full attention to something not wanted.  They are really in it and they’re looking for a response from you.

That’s When the Gears Grind

They are doing exactly the opposite of what you are working on.


You feel yourself tense up.  Your mind starts spinning.  You don’t want to judge, and you’ve learned not to try to “help” when they are not asking for it.  Usually when you try to help someone who is not asking for help, by overlaying your perspective, they tend to feel judged.   It can feel to them like you perceive them as needing to be “fixed” and like you are trying to change them.

This is a subtle point, but often your authentically good intentions can end up backfiring. You can actually become a new problem for that person to complain about!   Has this ever happened to you?

So there you are, not knowing what to say or do.  You don’t want to stay in the conversation of their negative focus, but you don't want to leave because this person matters to you…You freeze —  like a deer in the headlights.

What to Do?

Here are 3 things you can do, right at that moment.  They are all based on you taking 100% responsibility for your experience.  And so they all carry you further toward your empowerment, freedom, and enbrightenment

1 – If you decide to leave the conversation, you can do it this way:   

Express your love for them and your compassion for what they are going through.  Tell them that you don’t want to add to the problem so you’re going to go do something you’ve learned that can help in situations like this. (Here you are offering help but you are doing it yourself.  You are not trying to “change” them – you are not implying that they are broken and need to be fixed – so you run no risk of being perceived as a problem.)  Remove yourself from the energy of the upset.  Sit for a few minutes and write about, or visualize, that person as he or she wants to be.  See them, describe them, and create the mental template of them in their joy, power, and full resolution of their problem.

By doing this, you offer a strong vibration that they can resonate with.  As they do, consciously or unconsciously, they begin shifting their point of attraction.  They begin manifesting the solution to their problem.  This is a way that you can be of true service while also cultivating your own joy and connection to your inner guidance.

2 – If you decide to stay in the conversation, you can do it this way:  

With each negative spewing you encounter, notice your reaction. Feel where the tensing is in your body and deliberately relax it.  Take a moment to honor the Divine spark in that person.  Do whatever it takes to have compassion for the humanity in that person.  Take a moment to comprehend that their negativity is evidence of their pain and be an energetic font of relief and comfort for this person.  Yes, even if they are being negative toward you.  Even if they are blaming you for something!  At the very least you will transform yourself and your point of attraction so that you are less likely to encounter these moods in others.  Beyond that, you can be doing a great service for the other person as you silently, lovingly, energetically help them out of there conundrum through the invisible power of your compassion.

3 – Whether you stay or go, you can also do this:  

Ho'oponopono is a Hawaiian form of healing that you can call upon in this situation.      In a nutshell, as you encounter this negativity in the other person, you take 100% responsibility for the presence of their pain in your consciousness.  (Pause here and take a moment to really get that!)  You recognize their problem as yours because they are experiencing this upset in the space of your awareness.

Then you offer these words to the Divine:

"I love you.  I’m sorry . Please forgive me.  Thank you."

Repeat this as a mantra.  This simple yet profound practice sends a gentle, harmonious vibration from you to your world.  It cleans your energy field and opens the space for the good you desire.

Find the Gift in It

Other people’s negativity is always an opportunity for you to work on yourself.  Your encounter with it gives you a glimpse into a region of your own being where there is conflict.  When you accept the offering and work with it, you shift yourself into a new realm of empowered living.  So, the next time you find yourself tensing up in response to someone’s negative focus, find the gift in it.  Use any or all of these three approaches.  There’s an old expression: The situation is the guru.  This is a great opportunity for transformation.
