Psssst 🐍 Since landing in LA, I’ve been practicing kundalini everyday & it’s been incredibly powerful. Kundalini is a blend of movement, breathwork & mantra which makes for a consistently deep moving meditation. It’s the yoga of awareness & it works with your chakra points to rebalance your nervous system, while also being a physical workout. Many of the mantras are Sikh prayers that I heard growing up: Satnam meaning “May truth be my essence” & Waheguru referencing the divine creator, both “up there” & within us. •
You may have noticed I haven’t posted a Sunday Sarenade in a while. I remember one Sunday, I wanted to share a mantra but then I hesitated as I was nervous of being judged. Would sharing a chant be less interesting than a cool Lauryn Hill track? To some, sure. But I’m not here to entertain. I’m here to speak my truth, & that means I can creatively flow from a rap, to a Bollywood jam, to reggaeton to a spiritual mantra if that’s what flows. We get to be multifaceted beings you guys! What a gift! 🙌🏽✨
This month, I am also honored to be @BrownGirlMag’s Brown Girl of the Month! 🙈🙋🏽♀️ This interview along with a recent podcast I was featured on by the lovely @kay__ray have been the first times where I speak to my spiritual journey as well as the growth of @WomenInTech. Link is in bio. Feel free to give it a read to get a better understanding of my upbringing & career path. To hear the conversation between @kay__ray & I, check out Episode 12 of her amazing Cha Da Cup podcast which highlights brown youth that are doing the damn thing. 🙌🏽🙏🏽👊🏽
We have a powerful full moon coming up on Thursday. It’s the first full moon since Summer Solstice where I just spent time on the sacred land of Guru Ram Das Puri in NM. I feel a real energetic shift since Solstice, like it’s the start of a New Year. I’m fully dropping any lingering self-limiting beliefs with this full moon & I hope you call in the same for yourself. Living our best lives, speaking our truth, pulsing with gratitude & leading with love. Thank you family for witnessing this emerging. I’m an open book; know that you can reach out to me whenever & I am happy to be of service. SATNAM. 💗
Whenever you have a hard time, please, remember that not all things in life have only bad points but have good benefits as well.
Not all things are bad.
There is nothing that is all bad in the world. "세상에 나쁘기만 한 일은 없습니다." -그저 바라보다가 구동백 대사 중-
2009년도 삶에 털어놓지도 못할 힘든 일을 만나 아무것도 하지 못하고 있던 때
우연히 보게 된 드라마 속 남자 주인공의 대사 하나를 마음에 좌우명처럼 세기고 살아가게 됐습니다.
그리고 '안 좋은 일'이라고 불리는 일들을 만날 때마다 그 일 가운데 좋은 것을 찾아보려고 노력해보니, 신기하게도 정말 모든 일에 좋은 점이 있고 감사할 것이 있었습니다. 가끔은 시간이 지나고 나야 뚜렷이 보인 적도 있었지만요~. 지금 힘든 때를 만나셨다면 꼭 기억해달라고 이야기하고 싶어요.
시간이 조금 흘러야 할 수도 있겠지만, 세상에 나쁘기만 한 일을 없고
어떤 일을 겪더라도 잘 지나 보내다면
배움이나 성숙이나 추억 혹은 어떤 필연적인 일을 위해 꼭 일어나야 되는 일이었구나..라고 말할 수 있는 때가 곧 올 거라고요:)
힘나는 하루, 삶이 되시기를 응원할게요♡
Aqui eu me despeço desse que foi um dos países que mais me ensinou. Aqui aprendi que a distância é relativa e que depende do ponto de vista. Aqui aprendi que o bonito e o feio não existem e que as diferenças se completam e te ensinam a ser melhor. No rosto de quem aqui vive é possível ver as marcas de um povo pobre que é capaz de superar desgraças naturais com a fé. Aqui aprendi que a religião sustenta, fortalece e une. Em um país onde o cheiro de curry se mistura com o de incenso aprendi que quando vc agradece o universo agradece de volta! Tailândia, obrigada por me tornar melhor hoje do que eu era ontem. Aqui deixo um pouco de mim e levo um pouco de você! Sa was dee kub!!! 🇹🇭🙏❤️ #thailand #🇹🇭 #live #✈️ #yolo#trip#amazing#thankful
Sunday morning, the house smells like bread and soup, I'm watching "Springsteen: In His Own Words" and thinking about this guy. How many hours did I spend in jeeps and trucks - how many hours on mountain drives listening to the voice of the people, the greatest storyteller? #thankful#dads
Yesterday we made the 5th place at the Swiss Championship🔥🙌🏻 I’m so proud of us because this was more that we expected❤️ As we didn‘t qualified directly at the qualifications we realised that we have to work harder to achieve a good rank at the Swiss Championship. We asked many experienced dancers for their feedback, changed a lot in our routine, tried to move more similar, be cleaner and bigger and worked on our expression. We rehearsed a lot and it was exhausting but therefore I‘m so happy that the hard work paid off🔥

Wow! God honoured me today when I least expected it. I pray Almighty God will honour you all too. Amen! .
Today, apart from being invited as the Special Guest for the Investiture of Mrs Odumade Yetunde as the Commandant for District 10 Ikeja, I was also installed as one of the Patroness of the Girl's Brigade. I am also the Girls Brigade Guidance and Counsellor of District 10.
Today, the inspection of the guards was carried out by my humble self. I owe everything to God Almighty. My previous inspection of the guards was carried out when my lovely dad, who was the patron of the Boy's Brigade was still very much around, well, hale and hearty. .
So, today was quite an emotional day for me.
I am thankful and thanking God for life and for honouring me despite all I have been through. I praise thee Lord. 👐

I love you more than you’ll ever imagine! Happy 2nd Birthday Dax!❤️2️⃣🎈
