Meditation & Learning Meditation: Deepak Chopra’s Leela™ (Wii & 360)

Deepak Chopra’s Leela™ is a MEDITATION game. Yup, you heard that right. And by the way, it works.

I just got this in tonight and it’s perfect for the first day of Venus RX especially since I wrote about expanding my meditation practice.

And I’ll be working out how to beautify and balance my thinking and speaking with a daily meditation and self-love practice as well as re-formulating communication tasks and the environment I do them in – April 6th, 2012 blog post

I tell you, I really AM on auto-pilot (driven by the universe) a lot of the times.  LOL

I ordered this for my Wii about a week ago and when I wrote the above, I was thinking of the meditation programs I already have like:  Walking Meditation, 8 Minute Meditation, and Mindfulness Meditation!  I really didn’t think I’d be getting Leela in but I’m so happy I did.

Leela, in Sanskrit, means PLAY.  And my Venus Rx is currently in the 5th house and I’m ready to re-energize, review, and rethink my playtime.

I believe I’ll be looking at bringing more art, money, cerebral play, and romance into my life.

And the ‘active’ part of Leela IS a sort of mindless cerebral play that is a feast for the eyes — perfect for Venus Gemini. By the way Deepak is a Libra/Scorpio cusp.  Hrmm. Cool.

There’s two parts. One part is active and one part is reflective. The active part gets you doing mind numbing and peaceful actions that give a sense of growing something. The reflective part gets you to rest and do nothing, go within.

As I play with it more, I’ll update this blog post.

You can get Leela on Amazon.

Drawing Art Supplies & New WIP Jaisla Artwork

I know it’s serious when I buy a portable electric sharpener and electric eraser. LOL #drawing #art

And a happy man!!

Lets do the hustle. 

Help! Look at my wrists doctor.

Check out my balancing act.

Come here honey. *burb*

I’m made of grass man. Puff, the magic dragon!

Okay, let me get real for a moment.  I’m into drawing because I didn’t get over playing with dolls and this is how I can get away with it as an adult. LOL

And here’s some WIP artwork… I think my shading is coming along.  Still not 100% but getting there. :-)

 

p.s. Saw Picasso at the AGO this morning.  It was really exciting.  I hope to do a celebrity astrology on Pablo while also chatting about the exhibit.

The Farmer’s Almanac

I ♥ the Farmer’s Almanac.

I first learned of the book when I was a teen and grew up in and lived near farm country.

I’d use it to plan my summer holidays in Toronto. I always wanted those days to be sunny and bright and the Almanac never steered me wrong! Good days!

Mega Biking & I’ve decided to get out every day…

I’ve decided to get out ‘every day’. I work from home, and get comfy easily, so this is a HUGE deal. And for the next 8 months, I also plan to take my bike short and long distances while avoiding public transit, when I can. So I’m going to get all the ‘commuter’ gear that I can get and get doubly fit.

Favorites: Chakra Candle Votives

I love the way these candles burn and easily come out of the jar. They do not stick to the sides like wax. It’s a clean burn. Great energy to them too. Check out my blue candle and jar.

Toronto Coffee, Baristas, and Beauty: te aro, TeAro, Te Aro

So I went into my favourite coffee shop today, te aro. I rushed myself in, was looking at the cookie section while what looked like a street bum, was talking up the cashier.  He finally stopped talking and just left without anything.

Then I made my way into the same position, looked up and hark, the angels sing — the most perfect and stunning face I ever saw in person looked down at me.  I stuttered out my order (his beauty invoked temporary amnesia as to why I was there… lol) and kept wondering why he was working there and that I wished I looked better after my recent bout with whatever and that my hair wasn’t in braids and a ugly hat. I’d also forgotten my wallet in the rental car so I had to go and get it.  I did such a girl thing on the way back, I instinctively removed my braids and ugly hat before I got back in. haha

If you’re into Rhys Myers without the alcohol and addictions, this man will serve your eyes well.  It must be hell exceeding the limits of ordinary beauty.  I mean, really, I don’t think I could stand to face that face every morning. lol I couldn’t even bring myself to ask his sign, name, or anything like that.  I was stunned and felt I was nowhere near his beauty level to even have such a discussion — again, I’d just be a stuttering fool.

Anyway, geez — that Aussie needs to be discovered (if he hasn’t already) by a modelling agency. Heck, maybe I’ll call a talent agent and let them know about this beyond hottie — lol…

The barista who made my mochas was the normal range of hottie material and a sweetie.  I got a leaf with a little heart at the end.  I was just so flustered with the eye candy, otherwise I would have taken a picture of that piece of art.  Yum too! At least I let them know his work of art was beautiful and he smiled with pride. Yay!

Who needs to go to a watering hole when you can go to te aro and check out the hotties behind the bar and enjoy a delish beverage.

David Bowie: Astrology Reading

The best way for me to read Bowie, is probably over time since he’s so darn complex. And Astrogasm is a great space to do it in since the focus is ‘short’ to ‘very short’ posts.

I fell in love with the artistry of David Bowie in the early 1980’s while stylizing my hair with chocolate mouse and listening to the radio. China Girl came on and I had a musigasm in which I proceeded to dance around the room in delight. It wasn’t until decades later, when doing a past life regression, that I found I was a defected Chinese solider in the Han dynasty. I have also naturally appreciated Asian wisdom, art, and aesthetics. I also understand that the title could refer to drugs; heroine.

Anyway, it wasn’t until recently that I found out that a) David and I have an alarmingly number of the same, similar, or interesting natal signatures, b) that our synastry is quite fascinating, and that c) he was very much into the occult, at one point. That’s when I realized we like the work of certain celebrities for a reason! It’s really a mirror reflection of our own great star.

While we are very different as much as we are very much the same, I’ll probably read him in relation to what I know about myself and how he has manifested the same or similar aspect.  In that way, there can be a pure read and deep connection to David Bowie, the Chameleon.
