Tap Into the Aloha Vibe with this Hawaiian Breath

Can you tell that I just got back from Hawaii? I had the most magical time and wanted to share some of the Aloha energy with you.

While I was there, I woke up early and did my normal breathing exercises to start my day.

A few days in, I realized that I wanted to really embody and project the word Aloha and Mahalo.

I learned that Aloha does not only mean hello and goodbye. It also means:

  • Love, peace, and compassion.
  • A connection with mind, body, spirit.
  • A connection with all other people, living things, and the universe.
  • To be joined with the spirit and the presence of the person you are with or the place you are in. 

So I edited the breath I was doing to use the word Aloha and then I added an evening breath using the word Mahalo, to give thanks for the wonderful day.

After I got back, I discovered that the break down of the word includes breath.

Alo – “to share”
oha – “to show affection or friendship”
ha – “life, breath”

Wow! How perfect!

I am sharing this breathing technique with you today in a short video. (1:44). 

I share this with respect for the Hawaiian culture and gratitude that I was able to experience with my family.

Below are some of my favorite photos from our trip!

  • Scroll down for the cards and messages. 
  • OR you can look at the main card below and pick the situation that resonates with you the most at the moment.

Enjoy your reading!

Messages revealed – left to right!
8 of Arrows – 3rd Chakra – Citrine –

  • Commit to a way with confidence.
  • You have all you need and now it is time to put it out in the world. The best way to do this is to find a way that works for you and stick to it. In the past, you might have thought that doing that would restrict you or that you lacked the confidence or willpower to stay the course. Committing to a path can actually create more freedom than you have ever imagined. Start small and do things daily. That alone will give you confidence.
  • Consider imagining yellow light at your third chakra right above your navel. Place your hands there and breathe into this area daily.
  • Citrine enhances optimism and energy. Either carry one around with you or imagine a citrine stone in your solar plexus.

8 of Bowls – Working with your Breath – Clear Quartz Crystal –

  • Turn towards the divine.
  • Your old ways are not working for you anymore. It is time to turn your back on them and open up to or deepen your connection to the divine.
  • Working with your breath is a quick way to do this. You can simply do deep belly breathing or consider starting your day with right nostril breathing and ending your day with left nostril breathing (simply close the opposite nostril and breathe for at least one minute). This simple act of slowing down and tuning into your breath will open you up to a higher level of living and connection to the divine.
  • Clear Quartz Crystal enhances clarity and spiritual connection. Carry one around with you or imagine it at your third eye center when you are doing your breathing exercises.

3 of Pipes – Hawk – Amethyst – 

  • Dream. Envision. Wander.
  • It is time for you to energize your talent. Think of the future and let go of the past. Do go blindly forward though. Take time to dream and envision. Then look for signs.
  • Ask Hawk to be your guide and send him/her out ahead to find you opportunities. Then listen to your gut, your heart, your intuition when things come your way so you can discern whether or not they are right for you. The universe is leading you.
  • Amethyst enhances imagination and awareness. Put it under your pillow or imagine it at the crown of your head while meditating.

Tips for Creating More Time in Your Day

Last week I found myself reading this article about people bashing Kylie Jenner for not washing her face long enough on Instagram.

Argh! The article popped up from a news site on my laptop. This is not how I wanted to be spending my time. Lol!

I decided to come up with a few tips to help you and me spend more time doing things we love instead of things we don’t.

You can still carve out time for celebrity gossip and Netflix binges. I just finished watching every episode of the BBC comedy, Miranda. (BTW, it is hilarious!)

I just want to help you make sure you are doing that while also living a life you love.

Watch the video above or read on for my tips!

TIPS FOR CREATING MORE TIME IN YOUR DAY

  1. Eliminate reminders or alerts on your phone and computer that ultimately distract you from the task at hand or getting things done or doing something you enjoy more.
  2. Write down a list of the things that you love to do. Hang this somewhere where you can see it regularly to remind yourself that you would rather be doing one of those things than scrolling through social media.
  3. Create positive reminders on your phone of things that make your heart sing. Schedule them to go off when you have a tendency to be zoning out.

HOW DO YOU CREATE MORE TIME IN YOUR DAY?

SHARE IN THE COMMENTS AND INSPIRE ANOTHER SOUL

I share how I have done this in the video. Have fun creating more time in your day and doing more of what you love!
