“You are a child of God, and always will be, even when you don’t believe it.” ~ Richard Rohr • • There comes a time when we have read the books that promise the secrets to happiness, taken the supplements that help detoxification, created a routine of self-care and self- love, and taken time to nourish our inner child through meditation, yoga, exercise, therapy, nature etc; but… the emotions still move inside us in a motion that spin us back into our wounds. • • I truly know it too well. There were times when I couldn’t get out of bed because my hormones were so out of balance and my skin literally burned. Sometimes in those moments, I would feel such intuitive hits, and realize that people I thought I trusted were actually not truly supportive the way they claimed to be. Ouch. Intuition can be super tricky. Hormones can become the thief of our inner joy by putting us into a high alert. And if we are empaths our auric fields become sensitive and we feel things that are not even ours to feel! How do we differentiate? • • So many are healing these days. • • In a few months there will be a brand new online class for all of you interested. A friend of mine is producing it, and I am going to be your host sharing everything I know on how to overcome the intensity of this time. • • If you aren’t signed up for my newsletter, you can subscribe on my website which is in my bio. • • Until then… remember… you are a child of the divine. You are loved. And you are healing for generations.
Karena Virginia is a certified healer and registered yoga instructor who has taught in the Kundalini and Hatha schools for nearly 20 years. Her work encourages us to connect with our own personal truth through love, compassion, inner beauty, and radiance.
Now for some of the fancy stuff 🙂

Hi Daddy…. yes… that is your daughter…the ones the teachers didn’t know what to do with…. on the cover of a magazine in Germany…. I know you believe in miracles… but I also think being an immigrant moving to America without speaking a word of English can produce a sorta 'less than' feeling. But you did it. You are our hero. I pray you are smiling in heaven at this one, daddy. All I ever wanted as a child was to make you and mommy proud…. and to show you YOUR magnificence. And while I work on my own being enough issues, I realize that so many of us are healing generations of wounds at this time. #ancestralhealing #youareenough #youareloved #thedivine #healingyou #woundstowisdom #mountainstomiracles
Karena is the talent in the highly acclaimed yoga video, The Power of Kundalini Yoga, and the author of Essential Kundalini Yoga. Karena is also the voice on the IOS APP called “Relax and Attract with Karena.”
Karena is a member of Oprah Winfrey’s Belief Team, and she is a pioneer in the metoo movement who has discovered that the meaning of healing humanity starts with speaking truth and choosing love. She is passionate about helping others find their voices and heal.
So what is she doing at Monmouth Beach Yoga this week? Here are the details:
Summer Solstice is a time where we can embrace the gifts of the seeds we planted in the Spring. We are living in a new age where the impossible is becoming possible. The limitations of the mind are the only true obstacles for the miraculous to shine through. We have the capacity to merge our subtle body with the Grace and miracles of the higher realms in a much more tangible way than ever. Transformation occurs when we release the resistances that block us from experiencing the magnitude of our radiance. Using Kundalini Yoga, meditation and chanting, we will invoke the pure depth of stillness, extend love into our aura, and merge with the miracle of Guru Ram Das. All levels are welcome.
