Mantra: I am connected to my spirit and open to receiving guidance

Your intuition is your compass and guiding light in this world.  When you are in tune with your intuition you are able to make clear decisions and feel confident about the path your on. Your intuition connects you to your truth and guides you towards your destiny! She always knows what’s best. Enhance your connection to your inner guru today with these tips…

1. Meditate before or after your yoga practice. You can sit in Easy Pose or lay down in Savasana, whatever is most comfortable for you. Breathe deeply. Close your eyes and focus on the spot between your brows. This is your Third Eye chakra and where your intuition’s voice is strongest. As you breath, repeat the mantra above silently or out loud to yourself.

2. Buy a mala with an intuition-enhancing guru stone, like the Lapis Mala of Intuition or the Third Eye Mala, and wear it regularly to inspire you to keep your inner voice loud and clear.

3. Ask for guidance! If you’re looking for your inner guru to help you make a choice or to direct you, ask her for help. State your request out loud and then wait. Her answer could come in the form of a feeling, an idea or words. Pay attention!

Confessions from A Boho Fashionista: Go to your Guru! 3 Soulful Steps to Get Closer to Your Inner Guru

_P9A9737They’ve got all the answers. Some wear beautiful scarves and gemstones from far off islands. They sing magical songs that speak to the sweetest part of your soul. She’s your yoga teacher, who can endlessly chatarunga with a little grin; She’s your green queen coach who whips up a kale smoothie in a snap.  She sits silently, channeling peace and love through her third eye into her heart chakra. She’s your guru.  We each have a guru that we adore with all of our bohemian hearts, but here’s the catch—the guru is you! You have access to an inner guru that’s inside of your yogi soul, and it just takes a few special steps to unlock her.

Here are my 3 Soul Steps to Get Closer to Your Inner Guru

 1.Slow Down

It just takes a couple of moments each day to slow down and take a look at all of the extraordinary things in your life that you have to be grateful for. This is a practice, so when you’re firing up your ‘slowing down’ process, it can be tough. Don’t give up! Take a little but of time in the morning or before bed for your gypsy goddess-self to slow down and tap into all of the goodness in you. You’ll start to notice what a wonderful world your living in, and all of the guru qualities that you possess.

2. Listen Up

A modern day gypsy lifestyle has got bohemian babes moving pretty fast, and sometimes we don’t have the chance to listen up. What does this mean? It’s a little extension of your ‘slowing down’ practice, but this time you’re really getting to know your inner guru. Listening to all of the whispers and signs that appear on your auspicious path is an offshoot of slowing down. Suddenly you’ll notice inner encouragement when you slow down, listen up and trust yourself. Have you ever felt a whisper in you that told you everything was happening just as it was meant to? Did you ever just know that things were going to be ok? That’s your inner guru speaking to you, and that whisper (or shout!) happens when you listen up.

3.Move Your Boho-Self!

When we getting moving in ways that we feel passionate about, like dance, yoga, running, or hula-hooping, we’re getting into the flow. You may have noticed the last time you were breathing and moving, that you felt connected and things that didn’t make sense before suddenly fell right into place. This is because moving actually slows down your busy, boho-brain, and gives you the chance to get to know your inner self. Next time you find yourself questioning a decision, get moving, and notice the answers flowing.

We all have a guru (or two) that we love, but the real guru is you, boho babe. Take these 3 simple steps with you to connect back to your inner guru and get into the flow!
