As this podcast goes to air we just moved through a powerful full moon in Virgo. The last full moon of Winter. A time of deep cleansing and preparation for the season ahead.
We have very powerful transits with Saturn in Pisces, Mercury in Pisces, Neptune in Pisces, and soon Jupiter in Pisces.
This energy will bring personal opportunities to reorganize and restructure many parts of your lives. Saturn rules structure and order. It also rules karma. So all the more reason to clean up the old energy so that you can break free to choose what you want to do with your time, energy, and resources. Your choices create a ripple effect all around.
There is so much direct motion, allowing you to propel yourself forward and direct on your path.
Are you ready for Spring?
It is a time to shed layers of old, conditioned patterns that tell you you are not good enough, perfect enough, or worthy enough… These are energy drains.
This time period right now offers you chance to free yourself from the weight of perfectionism and transform every mistake into a powerful lesson poised to help you evolve.
Old habits, saying yes to everything, and people pleasing are also forms of energy drains. It’s a way that you self-sabotage, and allow fear to come in, even when you really want to make changes. We all do it. We create these energy drains. We give our power away and then we wonder what happened!
Does this sound like you?
If so, you are just the person for my next Masterclass where I will be talking about these energy drains … the saboteur, the people pleaser, the martyr, attracting narcissistic people into your life.. and what you can do to stop the drains and Monetize your Energy for your dreams to come forward.
Learning tools and techniques on how to hold energetic boundaries will shift your energy. You will begin to notice how you can stand up for yourself, say no and feel good about it, and pull your energy into yourself instead of giving, giving, giving it all out.
This Masterclass will be an intimate group of people: sensitive, empathic, intuitives willing to open up and make some shifts.
Shout out to Mercedes Lokich for reaching out about her experience with listening to last week’s episode with Sterling Moon. Thank you Mercedes and glad you loved the episode.
I would love to hear from you about the comments!
My guest today, Ashana, is passionate about nurturing the creative process to bring through just the right words, sound, melody, feeling and expression. Her musical calling came at an early age as a young girl growing up in the Bronx, in New York City. She began singing in churches and as time went on, synagogues, temples, sweat lodges and at sacred sites. Classically trained, she spent many years exploring a wide variety of musical genres including jazz, pop, gospel, musical theater and children’s music. From ancient to contemporary she immersed herself in early music, graduating with a degree in vocal studies from the prestigious Mannes College of Music in New York City. She discovered yoga, chanting and mantra in the early 1980’s, and has been a devoted student of Sanskrit mantra and meditation practices. For over twenty years, she has been on a deeply personal journey, studying and exploring sound healing and the voice. During this period she began working with quartz crystal singing bowls, instruments that are often used in contemplative practices to support healing, balance and well-being. Bringing these extraordinary sounds into music and the lives of others was, Ashana reflects, “my destiny.”
Performer, recording artist, sound healer and teacher, Ashana tours the world with her concerts, workshops, retreats and crystalline sound healing. She makes her home near Sedona, AZ with her husband, Native Hawaiian Healer, James Kawainui, and her magnificent family of crystal singing bowls.
Her book, Crystal Singing Bowls – The Angelic Sound of Healing, Relaxation, and Spiritual Awakening is now available on Amazon and is the subject of our show today.

I am actually a little star stuck, to be quite honest. I have been listening to Ashana’s music for years!
In this interview we talk about sound, music, all things crystal bowls, how to choose them, playing them, the healing they create, the benefits, chakras, and the amazing power of intention that you can create through crystal sound healing.
We mention …
Dr. John Beaulieu – website – Tuning forks and sound healer
Hildegard of Bingen – herbalist, musician, composer
As Ashana says in her book…
“Imagine… picking up a shimmering bowl of light, infused with precious gemstones, minerals, and metals. You gently draw the mallet around the rim, and your body is filled with an exquisite vibration of crystalline sound. Every cell in your body begins to sing. Your mind becomes quiet and still. Your heart begins to open. You remember who you truly are. “
If you play the bowls, want to play the bowls, or just curious about sound and healing, be sure to get Ashana’s book and definitely download her music. So.. so healing.
We are in a time of transition. Finding ways to help your Spirit along this human path, is vital.
