I LOVE Halloween because it frees us all to reveal our inner everything. I don't need much permission to show off my inner goofball and this celebration of our inner and outer demons is a great time for me to be oh-so-goofy!
Above, I'm with my dear friend Peter McDowell at the best costume party I've ever been to, Beezlebub. The party was in Chicago's south side in a giant warehouse. GREAT TIME.
I love embracing and embodying my inner instincts and intentions. This is a yogic practice, after all. On Halloween, I can wear these intentions on my sleeve. My costume was a 3 eyed old timey boxer. My 3rd eye of AJNA CHAKRA - the 6th chakra of intuition - revealed! My TAPAS - self discipline - shown through as a determined boxer who will hang in there and fight to do what's right with determination and will power! My SHIVA, my masculine powerful side on my face and chest with all that intense hair. I love it!
I hope you had fun connecting to your inner self this Halloween, as well. Booooooo.
