OMstars Internship ;o)

Greetings friends, and fellow yogis!

Recently, I was given the opportunity to work with OMstars in their marketing department. I am thrilled to have connected with Kino, my teacher, and now have the chance to work with the OMstars team. It is all a blessing.

If you’re interested in OMstars, I have a fun treat for you! Use the code JODIYOGA to get a free month at OMstars. There’s so much amazing yoga content such as live practices, daily practices, yoga culture, nutrition, and even more than that! Take a look, it’s amazing!

Namaste,

Jodi Lane

Transformation

It’s all around us. We’re not even a cell of the same person we were as children. That’s the physical, obvious part, but there’s invisible parts, too. Those are the parts you just, know, or feel. I like it. That’s what I mean when I ask a person who they are. 

Animals come to me in a variety of ways to speak with people who aren’t ready to listen. They come to me, and ask me to relay a message to someone. Often times, I have these animals approach me as I sleep, but I do not know who their messages are for. I’ve been fortunate lately to ask for their messages when a friend tells me they want to know if there are animal messages waiting. I feel like a, sort of, spirit animal voicemail, haha. That’s basically how it works, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. 

If you see an animal in your dreams, make sure you listen to their message.

Bedtime Stories in the Stars

Bedtime Stories in the Stars

By Jodi Lane

 

My mind never tired from translating what the stars meant as they dazzled my eyes, speaking a language they held all to themselves. I left my bedroom, one night, to stand in the field, and converse with the nighttime sky. There could be no better source for a bedtime story.

The sky stood as a blank canvas above the world.

There were no stars; not a single star present to fill my head full of tales.

However, there were sounds.

I spotted two others that had also left their beds that night. A friendly bush concealed me as I watched them work. In the center of our weathered barn, their faces glowed with the light of a vibrant brew they mixed in a large cauldron. Glittering dust and fluorescent sparks danced around as they stirred.

Charmed by the birth of constellations, my eyes did not dare blink.

The crumbling barn doors were pushed wide open, revealing the sparkling brew to the world. From the mouth of the cauldron, glints of light floated through the air taking their usual places in the dark, plain sky.

The Great Bear cuddled up with her miniature companion. A swift Dog darted around the vast Universe, but was no match for the Fox it sought. The sleek Lynx journeyed alone, confident in her stride, this time to live in harmony with the Hare.

The shroud of the night again dazzled my spirits. Stunning reflections remained long after I had closed my eyes.

My bedtime story had come.

 

I’m not an idiot or a dummy…

Ha ha, do you like my title? Recently, a very intriguing Ayurveda Practitioner released a book for pre-order. I have followed her for a few months now and I like her content. When I heard she wrote a book I thought that might be a great way for me to dip my hands into the vast ocean that is Ayurveda. It’s a tough topic to learn. Slowly, with basic internet research, I have introduced myself to it. I really like the methods used, because they’re all natural and encourages veganism. It does not solely encourage a vegan or vegetarian diet, though, so don’t panic. 

I am allergic to dairy, so this appeals to me for more reasons than just eating right. I pretty much have to avoid dairy, or, I feel like I have the flu all-the-time. That’s right, it’s an allergy, NOT an intolerance. I cannot tell you how many times I rehash this conversation with people. They keep instructing me about how I can cope with lactose intolerance. I laugh inside my head, but I grow tired of that same conversation. People are too funny. I don’t get angry at all. They’re sweet and wanting to help. If you’re curious about the difference just know that an intolerance gives you the craps and an allergy involves your immune system, giving you flu-like-symptoms, or worse. 

You see why I might be interested in an Ayurveda book? Well, I get to the pre-order page and it’s an “Idiot Guide” book. I have one of these books on my bookcase in the other room. Actually, I think it’s “For Dummies.” I rarely look at it, to be honest, but I don’t like the title. I am a writer and am finishing up my very first manuscript. One thing I never plan to do is point to my potential readers and say, “Hey, Idiot, you should totally buy and read my book!” 

I know, I know, I shouldn’t take mere words personally, but it’s a little annoying. There are numerous topics covered as “idiots guides.” It just seems like a marketing gimmick that should be dying out soon. I pre-ordered it, regardless, because of the author. I know that her content will be good. What if I didn’t follow her several months prior to the book’s release? What if I went and searched for a book on Ayurveda? I would 100% NOT purchase one that called me an idiot before reading it. ;o)

@kittytreets on Twitch!

Hello Friends,

As you know I’m an artist as well as a seamstress. I do many different projects and have way too much going on. Somehow, I think that is the only way I survive. Well, that and I have an amazing Partner in my life, Kayo, who makes the world a better place to be in.

Lately I have been streaming my art live on Twitch, and decided that this week I will also live stream myself as I sew. This should be fun. I’m going to try it out, and see how it goes. If no one shows up, that’s okay, I’ll still have fun because I’ll be sewing. What I would love to have happen is to be able to stream my sewing and art and make some new friends who love both things. Let’s see how this goes.

Feel free to go to Twitch and FOLLOW my channel for some fun projects.

Ciao,

Jodi Lane
