Simple Tips to Attract Abundance

Simple Tips to Attract Abundance

We all want to attract more abundance in our lives. Whether it’s money, love, a particular career, good health or something else, most of us grow up to believe and assume that we can achieve these things by simply setting strong goals, taking action and staying persistent.

This is good advice, but what we don’t always realize is that attracting abundance is primarily a mindset game. If our deepest beliefs and thoughts about ourselves and the world around us aren’t in alignment with how the universe works (the law of attraction), then our goals and actions won’t work to bring us what we think and say we really want.

If trying to change your habits hasn’t brought you the results in life you’ve always wanted, it may signify that you’re living through life with a scarcity mindset. Here’s what you can do to fix that.

Love Your Fears and Flaws

Attracting abundance into your life starts with self-acceptance and self-love. This means accepting yourself exactly as you are right now–including all the icky, scary stuff you’d rather ignore or criticize. Every time you think a negative thought about yourself, just stop to notice it, and then embrace it with love.

This is very unintuitive. It’s natural for our minds to run from fearful thoughts and avoid or criticize the things we don’t like about ourselves. Start with simply accepting it before moving to a place of love. The more lovingly you treat your fears and flaws, the less power they’ll have over you. Eventually, your fears and flaws will fade away entirely.

Turn Excitement into Gratitude

Ever stop to wonder why you get excited? Excitement comes from interpreting something as scarce in nature. If you’ve adopted a mindset that money, relationships, a job opportunity or something else doesn’t come your way very often, you probably get excited about it and naturally set your expectations high when it finally does come around. And when those expectations aren’t fulfilled, you feel disappointed, which pushes you out of alignment with abundance.

Think of it like this: it excitement correlates to scarcity, then gratitude correlates to abundance. When you notice yourself getting excited about something, focus on what you’re grateful for about it instead. Gratitude is the recognition of how abundant you already are right now in the present moment, which is exactly what you need to attract more of it.

Give in Order to Receive

Once you learn to embrace your fears, flaws, and abundance that you’re grateful for already, you’ll be in a pretty good place to start giving to others straight from the heart. Too many of us do what we do primarily from a selfish place. We work because we want more money, we get into relationships because we want love, we diet because we want to look good.

You have to think like a giver instead of a taker to attract abundance. If you focus on putting genuine passion into your work, you’ll attract more money. If you focus on how you could express love to your partner, you’ll attract love back from them. If you focus on taking care of your health no matter what your body looks like, it will naturally respond and change in accordance with how you treat it.

These are simple pieces of advice, but they’re not so easy to come across in today’s success-driven society that often ignores the real "inner" part of the game in favor of results. Just remember that abundance always starts with where you are on the inside.

Easy Ways to Live Like a Minimalist

5 Easy Ways to Live Like a Minimalist

When we hear the word “minimalism,” many of us instantly think of a very spacious and nearly bare home. Or maybe we think of the type of person who owns 100 things or less and spends their time traveling the world.

Despite what minimalism might look like to us on the outside, it has everything to do with what it can do for us on an inner level. It frees us from the anxiety, the overwhelm, the distraction and all sorts of other negative emotions we experience in today’s consumer-driven society.

Minimalism is really just another word for intentionality, and the good news is that you don’t have to go all the way by tossing out almost everything you own and drilling it all down to less than 100 essential items. You can use the following starter tips below for easy and painless ways to think and live more like a minimalist.

Get rid of duplicate items

This is an easy step anyone can take to instantly declutter and feel much better for doing it–without having to go through the emotional stress of deciding whether an item is really worth keeping. Just say no to duplicates. If you have more than one version of a specific item, keep the one that you love and use the most, and then toss or give away all the extras. Coffee mugs, linens, clothes and cosmetics are a few common items to get you started.

Buy something new, toss something old

Just because you’re deciding to take a more minimalist approach to your lifestyle doesn’t mean you can’t ever indulge in something new that simply makes you feel good. The real problem occurs when things to start to pile up so much that it starts to negatively impact your mental wellbeing, so make it a general rule to toss or give away an old item every time you bring a new item into your home.

Create at least one clutter-free space

We’d all really love to live in completely clutter-free homes, but who has the time to completely purge their whole house or apartment? Unless it’s to prepare for moving to a new place, not many of us can dedicate an entire week to decluttering every single room. So instead, keep one small space (or even an entire room) a clutter-free area. Good examples include your home office desk, the living room coffee table, the kitchen counter space, the entryway or your bedroom.

Streamline your meals

If you’re always stressing over what to eat, try picking just a few favorite meals and sticking to them to keep it simple. Streamlining your meals will help you waste less food as you become better at estimating how much of each ingredient you really need. In addition, you’ll likely become much more efficient at prepping your meals, saving you both time and energy, and your waistline may seriously benefit as a result of a better planning process.

Unplug for one day a week

Physical clutter is something we all have to deal with, but these days, digital clutter is also a pretty big problem. Many of us stay completely plugged in to email, social media, texting and general internet browsing all day, every day. It’s really worth going on a digital detox once a week on one of your days off. Using that day to spend more time with friends and family, get outdoors, have new adventures will leave you feeling refreshed for the upcoming week.

Remember, you don’t have to take minimalism to the extreme to benefit from it. Use it where you need it the most, start small, and take notice of how it positively impacts your wellbeing.

Embrace Your Inner Child to Foster More Happiness

Embrace Your Inner Child to Foster More Happiness

As we get older, “having fun” starts to come less naturally to us than it did when we were younger. That’s not exactly surprising given the amount of responsibilities we take on in our adult lives and the day-to-day routine activities that set in as we try to balance work, family, friends and everything else.

Regardless of age, everyone has a child-like part of themselves that never truly grows up, and it’s worth letting that little guy or gal out once in a while when grown-up obligations and drudgery feel like they’re taking over our lives. By embracing your inner child regularly throughout adulthood, you can ultimately experience a sort of anti-aging effect on both the mind and body that no store bought product or service could ever provide.


When was the last time you truly felt curious enough about a particular interest to pursue it? We’re constantly exploring new interests and learning new things as children, but we tend to stagnate after we finish our education and settle into adulthood.

Novelty is what our brains really crave. Any time we experience something new and exciting that we haven’t before, our brains react by releasing the feel-good hormone, dopamine. And dopamine is what motivates us to keep exploring in search of a reward.

So shake up your routine a bit by scattering in a new experience here and there. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant–something as simple as trying out a new restaurant at lunch or taking the scenic route home from work could be all you need to start exploring more.


“Play” can be defined as engaging in anything for pure enjoyment without any goal of producing a specific outcome or serving any practical purpose. Children are encouraged to play in order to learn and grow, but adults? Not so much.

Despite the general trend of leaving play behind in our childhoods, it turns out that it benefits adults just as much as it does children. Play stimulates the prefrontal cortex to improve brain function, helps to relieve stress and anxiety, energizes us and even helps us create closer relationships with others.

Instead of zoning out in front of the electronic devices, consider playing a board game with some friends, tossing a ball around with your dog or pulling out the box of Legos with your own kids. Your inner child will come out and remind you just how much you loved doing it.


Unless you’re blessed enough to have a creative career already, chances are you don’t indulge in any artsy or inventive activities as often as you did when you were a kid. Even so, being creative in your career versus being creative just because you can are two very different pursuits.

When anyone–young or old–is in a creative flow state, they’re essentially meditating on their own self-expression. It stimulates the mind, gives us an outlet to release energy, makes us better problem solvers and even provides stress relief.

Whether your thing is (or once used to be) drawing, painting, writing, dancing, playing an instrument or some other cretive endeavor, the child inside of you can help bring it back to life. You could even consider taking a class to explore and learn more about perfecting your craft.

There’s a lot of truth to the old saying that age is just a number. Let your inner child come out to explore, play and create once in a while for a happier and healthier adult life.

Find the Good in Any Situation

How to Find the Good in Any Situation

Ever notice how negative some people tend to get when things don’t go their way, or when faced with minor inconveniences? Even if you consider yourself to be a relatively optimistic person most of the time, we’re all guilty of taking on a negative mindset during times of hardship and uncertainty at some point or another. It’s normal, but it’s not very fun.

Finding the good in difficult and emotional situations might seem wrong and totally unnatural. To the undisciplined mind it certainly does, and while uncovering the seemingly nonexistent good qualities of a difficult situation requires a higher level of awareness than immediately experiencing good feelings of a more favorable situation, it’s definitely not impossible to do.

Let go of your strong desire for control.

It’s no secret that most os us prefer to feel like we’re in control of everything that’s happening around us. We want to be certain that undesirable to unknown situations are going to turn out okay, and when we feel like we’re not in control, we struggle to stay positive. Understanding and accepting that life is a fluid, constantly changing string of events is one of the first key steps to conquering a negative mindset.

Treat every situation like it’s an experiment.

In other words, get curious. Put your worries and negative assumptions to the test by simply moving forward to see what will happen. Chances are that the process and the outcome won’t be nearly as bad as your thoughts made them out to be. Make sure you take the time to really recognize this and let it sink in.

Look for the lesson.

When times get tough, the pain and discomfort sometimes blinds us from everything else. But you can always extract significant meaning from any situation, even when it seems totally unbearable. It may take some time to fully recognize and accept, but the lesson you identify can be used as a tool to help you become stronger and resilient.

Laugh a little (or a lot).

We’ve all experienced tense, serious situations where someone around us unexpectedly cracks a joke and instantly shifts the energy of the entire room. Laughter is how we naturally relieve tension. If you can find even just one little silly thing to smile or giggle about, it can seriously make all the difference.

Change your perspective to be more grateful.

Stepping into somebody else’s shoes is good advice when you can’t seem to see past all your negative thoughts and feelings. And sometimes it takes talking to other people to force you to take a look at a certain situation from a different perspective so you're able to see that it’s really not as bad as you’ve made it out to be. Changing your perspective also opens you up to pa more natural state of gratitude, helping you to acknowledge and appreciate those positive aspects that may not have been as obvious to you before.

Being positive and finding the good in every situation doesn’t mean pretending that things aren’t challenging or emotionally distressing. It’s more about achieving balance by neutralizing those negative attributes with the positive ones. With enough practice, you may even find that the positive attributes will naturally start to outshine your negativity.

8 Yogi-Inspired New Year's Resolutions

Traditionally, with the coming of the New Year, we set out a list of goals, hopes, dreams, and resolutions. It's here that we have reflected on the past year in candor, and choose to carve a new or more challenging path. While resolutions can vary widely person to person, we've put together some of our favorite yogi inspired resolutions – some specific in their task, and others more general or relating to the way we carry ourselves day to day.

We reading this list, reflect on what these resolutions would mean for you personally. How would you go about achieving them? Most of all, we encourage you to make a list of your own resolutions alongside this list. Take some time to devout thought into your goals and be realistic with yourself. Build plans around your goals, and place the list somewhere easy to see every day, helping to remind yourself of your resolutions.

More Writing1. More Writing

Writing can be one of the most creative and cathartic outlets for a person. While it doesn't always include what some may see as "artistic flare" (like, say, a canvas or myriad of paints and textures), writing is as much based in the soul as it is in the mind. Your thoughts become symbols on the paper, and you allow yourself to release your emotions, hopes, and/or insecurities into the world. You don't need to make your writing public – perhaps it's in a journal or private blog – but doing so opens up a whole new channel for creativity. Find yourself a pen pal or spend time creating content that can inspire others. By adding a reader to your writing, you'll find that your mind works in new ways, and produces new artistic flows while writing.

Inner Awareness Resolution2. Inner Awareness

Your breath has been your companion from the day you are born and is the only tool you need to help develop your inner awareness. Try taking ten minutes a day to pause and consciously focus on your breathe. If during this time your mind wanders, gently catch yourself and refocus back to your breath. This giving yourself permission to reset and refocus on what is important. Guide your breath and let your breath guide you to increased inner awareness.

Daily Meditation Resolution3. Practice More Meditation

For us, more meditation is on our list of resolutions every year. Meditation is very much a continued effort by all yogis, and consciously acknowledging the difficulty and necessity for commitment to the craft is extremely useful in taking as much away from the practice as possible. Even if you spend ample time meditating throughout your days, remember to practice the stillness of mind during the actions of the day, as you move place to place and talk to person to person. Meditation is a cornerstone of a healthy life and practice, and incorporating it into your days in as many ways possible can help keep stress down and vitality up.

Connect with Nature Resolution4. Connect with Nature

Connecting with nature awakens our original humanity. Simply go outside, look, listen, feel, touch, breathe. Pick berries, play a game, watch a bird, make a fire, have experiences. Unhurried time with nature is well known for giving bursts of intuition and sudden insights to long sought questions. As you ground yourself with mother nature, take notice in how she can create headspace for you to focus on both the short and long-term goals you have set for yourself.

Financial Peace5. Financial Peace

In 2014, seventy-five percent of Americans said money was their biggest cause of stress. Regardless of your income level, the clutter that poor financial health brings is exponential. By educating ourselves and humbly seeking help when needed, we can bring more peace of mind to every aspect of life that our money is connected to. This year, let's focusing more energy on the never-ending process of developing healthy financial habits.

6. Take A New Yoga Class

Perhaps you're a seasoned yogi, or perhaps you're still new to the practice. Whatever the case, a new yoga class – say Hot Yoga or Bikram – can be a fun way to add variation to your practice, meet new faces, and test your body in new ways. Ask yourself what part of your practice you want to improve, and try to choose a class that addresses that goal. Next, sign up!

7. Take a Friend to Yoga

Not all resolutions need to be so self-centered, and we encourage you to include others in your plans for a happier, healthier new year. For this next resolution, we encourage you to bring a friend to a yoga or meditation class. Think back to when you first started practicing. You may have been a bit shy, confused, or uncertain as to what yoga could actually do for your life. Consider now what it has done, and how that has benefited your health and wellness. With this in mind, make the conscious effort this next year to include a friend in your practice – they could really benefit.

8. Practice Gratitude

Like meditation, we constantly seek to add the practice of gratitude to our resolutions. The truth is, it can be hard to be graciously with every action, every day, and no one expect you to be perfect. Rather, it's the consistent effort, either internally stated or spoken aloud, that helps direct us to a grateful state of being. For example, during traffic, long lines at the store, or otherwise frustrating instances in life, take a moment to reflect and bring gratitude back into your life. Let the stress of anxiety and anger melt away, and replace it with affection and understanding. This can be one of your most powerful resolutions.

Commit to Your Resolutions

Committing to your resolutions is the real key to success, and that's why we remind you again to place your list of resolutions somewhere easy to see and reference every day (and we mean every day!). Invest in a small white board, or perhaps print of a single sheet of resolutions to hang by your bedroom door. Whatever the method, internally devote yourself to your goals, and keep in mind that most resolutions may not be achieved in a single day, but in 365.

5 Simple Ways to Love Others

Love is in the air. And whether you celebrate Valentine's Day or not, it's a good time to take a step back and reflect on the power we have when we turn our attention to loving others. Sometimes the smallest extra bits of effort by you can change someone's day, and in some cases, it can change a life.

Here are 5 simple ways to love others in a bit more personal way:

1. Handwritten Card

If you're giving away cards, skip the over-the-top or painfully general written ones and instead write them by hand. The act of showing your thoughtfulness for another shouldn't be driven by a compulsory feeling just because its the holiday, so spend an extra moment to think about this other person who has a significant role in your life. These are the messages that are truly meant to be shared.

2. Pay it Forward

Random acts of kindness are perhaps one of the best ways to spread the love. Consider buying the person behind you coffee, or help someone with their bags across the street. If you see someone in need, lend a helping hand. These positive, proactively actions in public often have an immense ripple effect. You may end up changing the moods of hundreds of people.

3. Make a Donation

Donating doesn't just have to mean money. Clean clothes, blankets, backpacks, shoes, and home goods are all great donations, and most people probably own much more of these items than they actually use. Just think, what do you have right now that you don't really need? Take a moment to clear your home of what you may consider clutter – you may be helping another person in an amazing way.

4. Volunteer

There is always need for good help. Shelters, non-profits, and many more organizations, all working toward public good, are often critically understaffed. Even with a busy schedule, a few hours a week can make a difference. Motivate yourself by inviting friends and family!

5. Give the Gift of Wellness!

Another amazing gift is the gift of new experiences. And here at Yogi Surprise, we deliver just that every month.  Gifting a subscription means gifting organic, sustainable foods, amazing goods for your body and mind, and inspirational and useful yoga tools and tips. It's a fun way to encourage a more holistic practice, and it's great for people at any stage of yoga.

Show the Love

With so many simple ways to spread positivity, spreading positive is easy this holiday – or any day, for that matter. Remember that this is an ongoing practice, and the more you do, the more good you do for not only the world, but also yourself.

So, how do you plan to show the love?

6 Powerful Truths About Your Next Hug

[tweetable alt=""]“We need 4 hugs a day for survival. We need 8 hugs a day for maintenance. We need 12 hugs a day for  growth.”
- Virginia Satir[/tweetable]

Hugs are an expressive way to give and receive love, trading energy between us all. Hugs can be tender, strong, short and long. I find Brits (myself included) uncommonly reserved and to a fault socially awkward. However, the privilege of a multi-cultural upbringing, a Yogi and earthy outlook has bestowed within me the importance of both physical and emotional connections. So, when I feel the need, I throw open my arms wide open for a cuddle whenever and wherever the moment arises. I’ll hug trees, my dog and cat, a cup of good old English tea, even a candle in a meditative moment, or a book to wonder and ponder a compelling passage. I even invite students to embrace a self-love hug in class to open up their shoulders during the warm-up or energise their spine in Apanasana, knees to chest pose.

The importance of hugs exceeds the realms of our emotional state and here are some reasons why.

1. Feel happy

A good long hug (about 20 seconds) will get serotonin levels in your body flowing which will boost your feeling of happiness.

2. Feel warm and fuzzy

When we embrace our oxytocin levels increase, stimulating a gush of oxytocin which is also known as “the cuddle hormone” or “love hormone”.

3. Feel relaxed

The healing touch from another is registered by the Pacinian corpuscles nerve endings. These in turn send signals to the vagus nerve which controls many things including the heart and digestive track and is responsible for lowering blood pressure.

4. Sleep easy

Cortisol (the stress hormone) is lowered when you hug it out. It helps balance the nervous system to empower a better night’s sleep.

5. Care and Share

A hug may not always dissolve a wounded soul, but if you have the grace to embrace, sometimes that’s enough. Hugs teach us to share and care in equal balanced measure because it flows both ways.

6. The Essence of Yog

Hugs are a form of Yoga and Meditation and for a few precious moments we are connected and surrendering to the moment of the present.

yogi bear hugsHugs can express what words cannot say. Embrace a hug, give a hug. Go full power by adding a smile, laughter, a thought of intention or gratitude and see what hugs can do for you and others today.



3 Powerful Ways the Sun Can Light Up Your Life

The benefits of getting a little sun go further than just skin deep; vitamin D, enhanced mood, increased oxygen and better sleep.

Humans and so many other species have evolved under the loving warmth of our beloved sun, our core energy and life-giving force for Mother Earth. Without it, we couldn’t survive. Yet, we now we live in a world flooded with information on how detrimental sun exposure can be.

Our sun is so dearly cherished, the ancient Yogis worshiped our sun through the timeless practices including Surya Namaskar, Atapa Snana, and Sun gazing.

1. Surya Namaskar

Perhaps the oldest if not the most known and loved Yoga sequence. Surya Namaskar translates to Sun Salutation. Comprised of 12 powerful Yoga asanas, one round is practiced on the right then left which equates to 24 movements, representing 24 hours in a day. Surya Namaskar heats the body from head to toe, provides a cardiovascular workout and tones core muscles including your abs. The Rishis, sages believe that the body is governed by Devas, divine light and that the Manipura, Solar Plexus chakra, located behind the navel is connected with the sun which increases creativity and intuition, which is activated by practicing Surya Namaskar.

2. Atapa Snana

Atapa Snana is the yogic phrase for the healing science of sunbathing. Using solar energy, a sun-bath is taken during the hours when the sun index is low. Diseased parts of the body, usually skin ailments are exposed to the sun’s rays, whilst the remaining parts of the body are kept in the shade. Once the affected area becomes hot, it is brought into the shade and the part of the body is massaged with oil such as neem oil, and then cooled down.

3. Safe sun gazing

Safe sun gazing is a simple practice where you watch the Sun. It’s imperative to practice mindfully, and only during safe hours when the UV index is either 0 or 1. Generally the first hour within sunrise and the last hour before sunset. Beginning with no more than a few seconds a day, and gradually building up your ability to gaze over time. Yogis believe this ritual improves vision, induces spiritual awareness and invokes peace, calmness and clarity.


Like the best things in life, our sun is freely beaming life-giving rays upon us. So sunshine, go on and soak up a little healthy dose of sun, just remember be mindful of practicing safe sunlight exposure.


The Powerful Intention of Namaste


Namaste ’is sometimes uttered before commencing a Yoga class or more commonly spoken at the end. It has been used as a greeting by many religions, meditation and yoga classes for an age. Perhaps Namaste invokes a feeling within you of gratitude and respect, perhaps not. Whatever you feel, the intention and meaning of Namaste go far beyond the direct translation of the word itself which we as Yogis should not be ignorant to.

It was in India where the gravitas and meaning of the word Namaste, also known as Namaskar captivated my heart. Here, I discovered that Namaste conveys far more connotations than a formal greeting used to meet or vacate another’s presence.

Like most Sanskirt words, Namaste bears multiple meanings.  Namah means 'bow', 'reverential salutation' or 'adoration' and te means 'to you'. Therefore, Namaste literally means ‘bowing to you’. Let’s break this down, starting with you and the reference of the word. You, your soul, also known as ātmā, induces a deeper spiritual sense hence, Namaste could be interpreted when the soul in one person acknowledges and pay obeisance to the soul in another.

Namaste handsWe all know actions speak louder than words, and in the case of Namaste they really do. It is by joining our hands together in Namaskar mudra, prayer pose that a higher level of awareness is expressed. The joining of the two palms epitomizes the left and right hemispheres of the brain representing unification. What's more, joining the fingers symbolize the 5 elements  (fire, wind, space, water and earth), the building blocks from which all is created. The placement of our hands is equally meaningful too. We can rest our thumbs on our sternum over our Anahata, heart chakra, the center of unconditional love and compassion. Or above the eyebrow center, Ajna, third eye chakra which deals with energy for spiritual reflection and insight. Furthermore, gracefully closing our eyes and bowing our heads helps us to honor the gesture with surrender, which we can either offer to another or to ourselves during Yoga practice and meditation.

On the surface, Namaste is a simple gesture, but when performed with intent and devotion, it embraces the highest manifestation of selfless honor, peace and love. Recognizing the one universal truth, that the life-force or Devine is within us all. How beautiful is that!

Although there are many meanings, they essentially convey the same message. And so in the spirit of embracing the meaning of Namaste, discover what it means to you, and then advocate it with devotion and serenity.

Namaste Yogis! AKA ‘the Divine light in me acknowledges the Devine light in you.’
Namaste Yogis
