  • Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make a decision

    Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen. My beloved Emerson said that and I can attest to this being the absolute truth. 6 months ago, Flannel Jack asked me to move into a van🚐 with him. I'm aware that this is the opposite of most people's goals, but I thought it was the most romantic💞 proposal in the world🌍. Our van turned into a school bus🚌 we named True North as reminder to follow our internal compass no matter where this big adventure takes us. Since that day, we have had so many obstacles to derail us - from big things like me becoming very sick😷and searching for a diagnosis💉 to small things like running out of my favorite patchouli vibrational spray. But the universe is always our side of our dreams. Your dreams will often turn out looking different that you imagined and so will your hurdles.☔️But here we are 6 months later and the transformation is complete: I have turned into the dancing girl emoji💃and we are ON THE ROAD! So, my sisters and brothers – dream big (make them as specific as possible) have a laugh when you run into problems and follow your dreams to the end of the rainbow🌈! Happy Trails! 🌅🍾

  • There is in all of us a Wild and Ancient Gypsy

    There is in all of us a Wild and Ancient Gypsy. We are all wanderers on this earth. Our hearts are full of wonder, and our souls are deep with dreams. There is part of us that can never ever be happy until the gypsy can dance. I have a gypsy soul & this gypsy needs to dance. Calling all gypsy souls out there ~ are you dancing today? 💃💃







  • Let the healing waves of Love flow over you this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse

    The final eclipse of the year, is opening a portal within and without, letting the deep healing, cleansing waves of Neptune  into the depths of our soul.

    After the burning and purification on the last New Moon Solar Eclipse 1st September, Neptunes healing and spiritual waves of love will heal, soothe and nourish our very soul. The Moon represents our emotional needs and who we are at a deep down soul level. We are remembering who we really are.

    Our inner Shaman is once again being activated in us all. The part of you that connects directly to the true source of the universe. Who teaches us how to stop living from the ego, and start loving your true, authentic self. Who, intuitively knows where our mind, body and spirit needs healing and which path to take, that will take us to the next evolutionary level of our development. Helping us to reclaim our lost power to heal, see the truth, and fulfil our purpose in life.

    Within you is a greater, wiser self that knows no fears, worries, but is infinite and boundless.

  • THESE ARE THE WOMEN

    Women who are called into divine feminine service - that of raising the collective feminine spiritual vibration quotient on this planet - are not shrinking violets.

    These women - who no doubt possess an ocean of the purest unconditional love and compassion at their conjoined Hearts - must be strong, bold and wise enough to make waves wherever they are sent.

    These women are the Ones who walk into old paradigms and shake them up at their core. These women are the Ones who have heard the Call of the Mountains, of the Sea, and of the Stars and Wind, and are doing something about it.

  • Empower the Goddess Within

    When I heard the call of the wild, I answered.

    I have walked a long journey towards re-claiming my own power; remembering that I have it, working on my deeply-buried emotional blocks for long enough to uncover it, and daily inner and outer work to re-anchor it into my cells. 

    I have had to remind myself daily that I am worthy of being in my power, and that I am not going to be hurt, or even die, from demonstrating it publicly. It is still a journey, but one that I find only strengthens the more I am open, honest and authentic about the depth of power that really lies inside me. 

    When I suppress it, hide, or allow society to dictate to me how I should look, feel and express myself, I feel painfully disempowered and somehow like a fraud. I feel like I am letting down a great universal force for healing.

  • When you don't feel like a Goddess

    I will be here for you when you don’t feel like a Goddess. Let me be your mirror. I am here to lend a hand so you remember that you are.

    Even the most confident woman has days when she doesn’t believe she is a Goddess. Every now and then these thoughts creep up after a painful break up or when you’re overworked, ill or financially strapped.  Other times it’s unclear the precise reason. You can’t seem to help but feel antisocial, invisible, insecure, over-the-hill, out-of-shape, unattractive, powerless, lost or insignificant. When you are being hard on yourself and thinking unkind thoughts, I am here to help you see how exquisite you truly are.

    During these times, let me reiterate that you are a Goddess.  Allow me to be your eyes when you can’t see that you are powerful. I will reflect back to you the amazing gifts you have to give the world. You have an essence that is exclusive to you. It is pure and perfect right now and forever. In case you have forgotten, you are sensual and feminine. I know you are capable of anything you put your mind to. I believe in you completely.

    When you don’t feel like a Goddess, I am here to remind you that you are.

  • I’m Going Back to School – I'm getting my Doctorate in Bathing and become Dr Bath

    Do you know that you that you can become a Doctor of bathing? Seriously. How freakin fabulous! I honestly thought I was through with school. After completing my Business degree at UCLA Anderson, I thought nothing would inspire me to pursue my higher education to get a PhD. But that was before I realized you could receive a bonafide Doctorate of Bathing! Now I am ready, set, go back to University.

  • Happy Winter Solstice – This celestial dance shows us how to re-ignite your inner-light

    “What’s the big deal going on in the sky?” you ask. It's the Winter Solstice combined with a Full SuperMoon in Capricorn.

    So? This rare occurrence signifies an opportunity for BIG personal transformation. The Winter Solstice is the longest night of the year and marks the darkest point of the sun, after which the light begins to return and the days become longer. Add the New Moon to this picture and now the sun and moon are both at their darkest point – making for an extremely long and dark night.

  • How to Maintain a Positive Attitude in the Face of Negative People

    “Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising, which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.” Emerson

    I admit it. I am a devoted dreamer, am annoyingly optimistic and possess an unrelenting aspiration to make a difference in the world. To put it simply: I’m a lover, not a fighter.....

  • Being paid to swim with dolphins: the dream job I never dared to dream!

    “Yes!” I replied exuberantly even before he finished his asking.

    I squealed like a dolphin as Todd Essick continued describing his project and incredible offer to me. He was referred to me from a National Geographic photographer that lived on the same island in the Caribbean where I was rescued by dolphins. He said I would be perfect for his photography book and art gallery show in which he wanted to capture me swimming with dolphins. He wondered if I would be interested.

    It was my dream job that I never dared to dream!

  • Changing the world - Make a difference one Goddess at a Time

    My mind has been on something quite simple—changing the world :)

    I’ve been focused on empowering other women to empower other women by certifying women to teach The Goddess Workout, spread the GoddessLife philosophy and becoming "The Goddess" in their community by blending their own skills & interests with what they love most about GoddessLife. It's been so inspiring to encourage women all over the globe to beat the odds, be strong and live big. (this pic is of me on skype call at 2:30am with a woman from The Czech Republic. And yes...I dress up for every single GWI career consultation!)

    It’s made me wonder— how can our actions be so powerful that we leave lasting ripples that inspire others to do the same? The refreshing answer doesn’t involve huge, intimidating steps, but simple, thoughtful ones. It starts with how we interact at home. Do we support our family and tribe, or do we challenge them every step of the way. Are we willing to lead by example instead of living small and never thinking we’re enough? I know we can make history by taking a stand. It starts by being willing to shine and own our power. When we do this we give others permission to do the same. We WANT others to shine as bright as us—it’s nothing to fear. A world full of people who have come alive would be an absolute blessing.

    So how do we change the world? It starts with you. Pursue what makes your heart beat, even if it seems impossible or bizarre. Don’t let the opinions of others hold you back. Know what fires you up and pursue it with passion. xoxoxoxo Dolphina

    Changing the world...one Goddess at a time.

  • Make Today Beautiful

    It doesn't have to be: New Year's, Monday or morning for you to start: eating healthier, doing The Goddess Workout (or dancing/exercising), being kinder (to others & yourself), starting your project, making a difference, forgiving, enjoying yourself or making life beautiful. Each moment is filled with opportunity. You can start anytime, now, at this very moment.

  • GoddessLife TuesdaysShoesdays - Nike Studio Wrap Dance Yoga Shoes

    It's Tuesday and the day we at GoddessLife HQ feature an outrageous, fabulous, unbelievable pair of shoes. Why? Because it's TuesdaysShoesday!And no matter what you choose to wear on your tootsies, go out there and strut your stuff Goddesses!

    I know I'm not supposed to. But I can't help it. I love these new Nike Studio Wrap shoes!

    I'm aware the entire yoga blogosphere has their chakras in a twist over these shoes. Blog after blog accuse Nike of peddling a product we don't need just to squeeze their way into the market "owned" by Lululemon. Don't get me wrong, I heart Lululemon. I'm a Lululemon Ambassador for asanas sake!

    Reading these blogs, it seems as if the entire yoga community meditated at the banks of the Ganges and it spoke. The words were: these shoes are too expensive, unnecessary and they would be embarrassed to wear them to class. I disagree.

    Possibly it's because I'm a dancer, as well as, yogini. Perhaps it's because Nike is a Greek Goddess and us goddesses wear everything from Lululemon to a gypsy scarf from a flea market. Or maybe it's simply that they are pretty. Whatever the precise reason, I cannot wait to lace a pair on and go to a pilates, ballet barre, yoga or belly dance class!

  • Lessons from the Sex Goddess Marilyn Monroe – How to Feel Blonde All Over

    Exactly what makes Marilyn Monroe the ultimate sex symbol – even so many years after her passing?

    Did she possess a sexy body? Absolutely. Were some of the world’s most powerful & fascinating men seduced by her? Definitely. Was she beautiful? Without question.

    But there are hundreds of women that could fit the above description. What makes Marilyn in a league all her own? And what lessons can we learn from the ultimate sex Goddess that we can apply to our own lives?

  • Cleopatra as a role model and what lessons can be learned from how she lived her life

    Cleopatra is arguably the most fascinating woman who has ever lived. The Pharaoh is so captivating that at least 2000 years after her death, there are nearly 200 films, TV movies and documentaries and almost 4000 books written about her listed on Amazon.com! (This compares with 1200 books on Marilyn, 300 written about Madonna and 150 about Coco Chanel). I devour anything and everything I can about Cleo, from documentaries on the History Channel to archaeological articles sent to me online by a friend.

    Why? What makes a woman that lived so long ago still irresistible after all this time? I would examine her extraordinary life from a new perspective: Cleopatra as a role model and what lessons can be learned from how she lived her life.

    I divided her fantastic biography into four "Cleotes" and how we can apply these quotes and lessons to our own lives.

  • How to Keep Your New Years Resolutions All Year

    Say it with me: "This year I'm going to transform my life from mundane to magical by not only writing down my New Year’s Resolutions, but actually following through with them." Easy enough, right? For some, but for most people, the easy part comes in the writing of them, not the doing.

  • My Secrets to Get Back into Shape after the Holidays

    *** I’ll admit it. I took the chocolate road to happiness this Fall. After a series of personal traumatic events, I let myself go and my buns of steel turned to buns of marshmallows. I stopped exercising and was breathless after a 15 second lap dance for my boyfriend. It was perfectly normal for me to eat a cupcake for breakfast. I never thought it would happen to me, but it did. I was out of control and completely out of shape.

  • A Fresh New Way to keep your New Year's Resolutions

    Yep, it’s true; I am a rebel. My defiant nature has nothing to do with politics or the law (for the most part); but if you said I was an nontraditional girl, you would be right on the money, honey. I am honestly bored by doing things the way they have always been done and most importantly, they don’t seem to work for most people…especially moi. But please don’t misunderstand and assume that I am pessimistic priss or against the concept of tradition. I believe wholeheartedly in the basic human need for ritual, hope and goals.

    So, when the New Year’s roll around and the internet is flooded with all the tired ideas of how to kickstart your rezzies, its not that I am in opposition to the notion of people setting goals, I just think those tired thoughts should be, well, (re)tired.

  • Create a Nom de Voyage while traveling this holiday season

    Many of you will be traveling this holiday season to visit family or friends (or what my friend calls framilies) and I recommend you adopt a "nom de voyage"  - for the car ride, plane flight or for your entire trip. A nom de voyage can come in handy to entertain your kids on a long car ride. Tell your kids you can't respond to their multiple questions unless they call you Goddess of the Car, Queen Candy Cane or Miss Zhu Zhu. It will make your whole family laugh every time they say it and give every one a delightful boost. It can also aid in the loneliness if you are not traveling and cannot be with your loved ones.

  • Happy New Moon & Solar Eclipse!

    New Moon & Solar Eclipse today! The moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and combined with the solar eclipse, this is a powerful aspect. What does it mean?

    New Moons signify rebirth, beginnings, a clean slate, the start of a new cycle. This lunation is a more potent New Moon, as it is a Solar Eclipse, and represents a new beginning in the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius. It's a time when we can focus on some of the constructive traits of the sign of the Archer--optimistic, enthusiastic, adventurous, honest, outspoken, independent--and consider how to positively incorporate these qualities into our lives.

  • Tell me what you want...your wish is my command!

    Darlings! It occurred to me last night that I've been a terrible hostess – I invited you to the GoddessLife party and then dashed into the other room, distracted by upcoming projects and now here I am just returning to the revelry. Where are my manners!? Fortunately for all of us, the gala has just begun and it is going to be the greatest bash you have ever seen, one that you will never want to leave. 

    My wish is to give you more of what you desire and need as a Goddess living in this ordinary world.  I was thinking of all your provocative questions, clever suggestions and willingness to share your deepest desires and personal experiences that contribute to the newsletters. I am pleased as punch when I’m writing the eGoddess news, that I long to give you more. Sending it out each month has made the world seem a smaller, more loving place. And all you Goddesses? I feel like we're all kindred spirits, spread all over the world.

  • Empower your self with Confidence

    I'm lying here on my round pink satin bed thinking of all the gifts I've received through bellydance: confidence, glamour, freedom, sexiness, joy. Bellydance has empowered me in nearly every area of my life but one: business.  Shimmy half naked for Arnold Schwarzenegger? No problem.  Read a financial report? I don't think so.  Give me some rose petals and tell me to spread them on my pink satin sheets - can do. Ask me to do an Excel spread sheet and I'll run screaming the other direction.  Actually, that was the old me, before I embraced my inner entrepreneur.  Now, spread sheets and running numbers come to me as easily as belly rolls.  How did this happen? By following some simple steps.

  • Lunar Lover's Delight: September's Harvest Full Moon is Coming!

    Over the next few nights, the moon will be well placed for observation as it moves towards full moon on Sunday night (Sept. 12). This month's full moon is special, because it is the Harvest Moon in the Northern Hemisphere. Because of the location of the sun, Earth, and moon this month, the nearly full moon will appear low in the southeastern sky for several nights in a row, which traditionally has allowed farmers an extension of daylight during the critical time of year when they are harvesting their crops - which is how it was named.

  • Dream Jobs - Do what you love for a living and be a cubicle refugee!

    I love my job! It’s crazy, but I adore it more than breakfast in bed. And that’s saying a lot! GoddessLife headquarters is an unconventional workplace that I created by doing what I love to do: dancing, dressing up and empowering women to discover their own path. I found my purpose in life, but it wasn’t always this way.

    I was fired from my last job of six years.  My boss sat me down over his 18th espresso of his day and started on his tirade by telling me I was a "wild pony".  I was about to say, "thank-you" when he interrupted me with his thick Greek accent to yell at me dramatically, "You are ruining my life" and proceeded to let me go.  Yes, I was bellydancing and technically doing what I loved to do.

  • Bloom where you are planted - How to find a career mentor

    Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, I knew how to do everything included in my job description. I was a bellydancing at a Moroccan restaurant and teaching bellydance classes. My days were filled with obsessively making bellydance costumes, searching for new Middle-Eastern music and rehearsing.  I made some extra money by selling my Goddess Workout video to my dance students that I recently produced. Then, a student, who was a writer for Sex and the City wrote about The Goddess Workout into an episode. Suddenly my life changed. I was in business. I mean business, as in becoming incorporated with stockholders, officers, lawyers, accountants, spreadsheets and an account at Staples. I was thrown into an alternate universe with aliens who spoke a bizarre language. I needed a guide to navigate the new strange world…I needed a mentor.

  • Happy Hour

    Happy Hour. The literal phrase is delightful. The concept is brilliant. The saying is a completely American invention created during the 1920’s prohibition era. The slogan was used at speakeasies (another great phrase) to denote drinking before dinner.

    Yes, it is true that the idiom is usually associated with cocktails after a stressful day of work. However, this fact doesn’t mean that you must become inebriated in order to create a happy hour for yourself.

    There are millions of other things you could do with that time that would bring you joy.  I have listed 10 ideas below, but I would love to hear your ideas.  Write me and tell me what you would do with your happy hour. The point is to carve out an hour to let your hair down and devote it to your own happiness.

  • Super Moon - Magical Moonlight

    Have you been reading all about tonight's special Super Moon? In celebration of the bodacious, beautiful, bright, silvery Goddess, I am re-posting my "Magical Moonlight" blog from May 2008.

    While I was driving home tonight from my bellydance gig in Malibu, I was so enchanted by the glow of the Full Moon and the illuminated path it created on the ocean that I nearly drove off a cliff! I began to think about how staggering the influence the Moon has on Earth: twice a day, it makes the waters of the oceans ebb and flow.  It takes about 1,500,000,000 horsepower for the Moon to drag the tides across the Earth each day. Sheesh, that's a lot of power! Scientists (those cuties with the white coats and coke-bottle glasses) say that our body is made up of 95% water. With all this power, the Moon (also known as Luna) must affect us, too, no doubt.  Perhaps which is why we attribute craziness and wild behavior to the Full Moon with the term: lunatic.

  • How to Select and Serve a Bottle of Champagne and open the Bubbly Safely

    I've received many requests to repost this blog - and I would never deny my darling GoddessLife Goddesses wishes. Happy 20&HEAVEN!

    To my sheer horror, I found out last night that one of my most glamorous and chic friends did not know how to open a bottle of champagne! This unpleasant discovery was made when the loaded weapon was pointed right at me: she had removed the wire cage (that goes around the cork) and the naked cork was aimed precisely in my direction while she aimlessly chatted about seeing Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie at the Cannes Film Festival.  I tried to remain calm as I diverted a total catastrophe by quickly snatching the bubbly from her and putting my hand over the cork. After accusing her of the crime, she confessed that she did not know how to properly open a bottle. I realized at that moment - if she does not know how to open a bottle of champagne - then there must be so many other lost lambs out there! So, in my mission to make the world a better (and safer) place for Goddesses everywhere: here are the guidelines of how to properly select, open and serve a bottle of champagne.

    Dom Perignon was a Benedictine Monk who is often credited for accidentally inventing champagne. As the story goes, after tasting his creation, he said, "Come quickly, I am drinking the stars!"

  • Woman uses dance to heal child prositutes

    Using dance as psychotherapy, Sohini Chakraborty is helping former child prostitutes regain their sense of self.

    In 1996, Sohini Chakraborty was walking in Kolkata when she came across a wrenching poster: a photo of a child prostitute staring listlessly at the camera, with the caption "I am no more bride-to-be, no more mother-to-be, no more future-to-be." The poster, which was outside the office of a local nongovernmental organization (NGO), was part of an antitrafficking campaign in India, where about 1.2 million children are believed to be involved in prostitution.

    A blissed-out night of cosmic performances of music, bellydance, burlesque, circus & other surprises!  Be prepared to be brought to your knees to worship The Goddess! The Goddess is ready to shower Her love and affection on any who cares to turn their gaze toward Her fiery heart.

    Audience is encouraged to drop into (or out of) the night - PLEASE enjoy, break free of self-imposed limitations, dress in costume and bask in the glow of the Goddess!

    My performance is not to missed! I am seriously serious. I will be revealing a new costume (and some other things!)

    Please click "Bask in the Goddess Glow" above in pink for all the deets.  Hope to see you there!

  • Mercury is Going Retrograde - What Does That Mean?

    Fasten your seatbelts; it’s going be a bumpy ride from May 27 to June 19. Mercury will be going into retrograde starting today, taking us for a wild ride for the next three weeks. Be prepared to get lost, run out of gas, arrive at your appointment late, spill coffee on your favorite skirt, misplace your files, fight with your boyfriend and leave with a parking ticket. Sound like oodles of fun? It’s unfortunate that you cannot stop Mercury from going retrograde, but there are some tricks to help you survive during this time and possibly even learn some things!
