Winter Solstice ~ The Year’s Longest Night, The Year’s Shortest Day. ~•~ Take a walk. Soak in a bath. Nourish your body and mind. Pray with good company. Write your achievements from last year, your intentions for the next. ~•~ Come rest within yourself. Dip deep into your Inner Being. Be still in the darkness and go inward. Observe anything that comes up - the positive and negative, the good and the bad - try not to judge it - observe and and allow yourself to Let Go. Celebrate who you are. Forgive your mistakes. Fill your Self with Love. ~•~ The days will be getting longer and longer. This day is celebrated in many cultures as a rebirth of the Sun. When we awaken, it is a rebirth of Inner Light. ~•~ Beginning again, Breathing, Creating, Being. ~•~ #wintersolstice #fullmoon #wellness #seewellness #seewellnesswithin Photo: Dahlonega, GA 2017

Holiday Treasure Chest ~•~ The holiday season may arouse a mixture of emotions. Family, friends, food, parties, gifts. Events filling up the calendar. All with the potential to be stimulating in pleasant excitement or nervous tension. While you go through the next few days, fill up your own personal treasure chest with some coping tools to help you stay well. ~•~ Tip for the Holidays: Exercise before the party! You will be ready to add a few more calories to your evening. Physical activity - whether it be rigorous or simple yoga stretching - can help clear up mental stress and leave you more refreshed. ~•~ Read more tips on the Blog www.seetalcheema.com/blog ~•~ #holidaysurvivalguide #wellness #seewellness #seewellnesswithin

About four years ago, I was asked during a meditation practice, “Is your home a sanctuary?” I immediately replied from a deep inner voice: “No.” I was so surprised at my response. I had been ignoring my true feelings. And I needed to change my surroundings. ~•~ This was the beginning of my search to move to the west coast from the east. And my work to fill my home with love, light and good company, with making the space feel welcome for rest and life. I keep a space for my incense, sage, yoga mat, journal and prayer books. I open the windows and let the light and air in. I water a garden of herbs and succulents. I let go of excess and keep to a functional minimum; if I buy something new, I donate an old item. My kitchen is my meditation center, where my hands create nourishment and fill the ether with aromatic spice. Most importantly, I work to keep my thoughts clear and my heart open. ~•~ Making our homes a sanctuary can take time and effort, to see what we need, what works to bring the optimal environment for balance. To free up space, so that we can have even more space - to breathe and love. ~•~ When we start from our own central foundation, when we grow our roots deep in one place, we can then grow our branches further to do more in the world. ~•~ #makeyourhomeasanctuary #homesanctuary #spreadlove #motherteresa #wellness #seewellness #seewellnesswithin @revloveproject

Baby Acupressure ~•~ Yin Tang is one of my favorites points. It is also known as the third eye, or the upper dantian in QiGong. This point helps to calm the spirit, alleviating insomnia, anxiety, and agitation. Yintang can also help with hypertension, frontal headaches, nasal congestion, rhinitis and sinus pain. ~•~ Typically when I press or place a tiny needle (smaller than a cat’s whisker!) here, people feel calmer. I also have started using acupressure here to help people relax right before they go off to dream world with anesthetic medications in the operating room. I hope using yintang will make you giggle as much as this little angel! ~•~ #babyacupressure #babywellness #itdoesnthavetohurt #medicalacupuncture #acupressure #yintang #calmspirit #holsticmd #yogatherapeutics #painmanagement #anesthesiologist #wellness #seewellness #seewellnesswithin @cbsmadariaga

May I live in ease, peace and love. May you live in ease, peace and love. May we all live in ease, peace and love. ~•~ We were instructed to practice loving kindness {metta} as a walking meditation. For ourselves. For a neutral person. For our “enemy.” For everyone in the room. For all in the world. ~•~ “You may not get great waves of emotion when you practice, but that doesn’t mean something isn’t happening.” - Sharon Salzberg ~•~ And so we walked, carefully through this labyrinth, one foot in front of the other, hearing the rocks under our feet, patient with each person ahead of us, to the center, for a moment to stand still, and back out again. Connected in purpose and action. And simple joy. And motivation to learn and change. ~•~ Thank you for your teachings in love and peace ~•~ #sharonsalzberg #krishnadasmusic #mettameditation #walkingmeditation #peaceandlove #mindfulness #1440multiversity #wellness #seewellness #seewellnesswithin @sharonsalzberg @krishnadasmusic @1440multiversity

“Heart as Wide as the World” - Krishna Das ~•~ About seven years ago, my heart fell into deep grief. During this time, I could not sit still. I could barely meditate in silence, a practice that replenishes my peace. I started to listen to chants, and I started to sing with the chants. Every morning when I awoke. And whenever I was driving. The music, the sounds, the voice, hearing my own voice vibrate in my body, and the devotion of the words - all have strengthened my heart and given my true spirit room to grow and flourish.

The last time this group stood together was in June 2007. At our graduation from anesthesia residency at NYU. ~•~ For three years, we learned. For three years, we struggled. In the OR before 6 am. Called out of a semi-slumber at 2 am. We worked hard. We lived hard. Each of us - in our own unique, creative ways- pushed the limits, thinking outside any prescribed boxes. We wanted more than being physicians. We were there together as more than drug pushing anesthesiologists. We became dream weavers. ~•~ The bonds you make when you are put in the trenches of medical residency stay deep within you forever. The stories and experiences are more enmeshed in my daily practice and clinical knowledge than any text book. I am so grateful for your connection. And I miss you so. ~•~ #forgerard #peaceandlove #anesthesiologist #anesthesia #nyuanesthesia #dreamweaver #wellness #seewellness #seewellnesswithin

Like Mary snd Joseph, who were looking for hospitality, we ask the community for shelter, charity and support for those infected and affected by this virus.” ~•~ For the 31st year - We walked on Sunset Boulevard from Silverlake to Echo Park, singing songs and holding lights. We nourished ourselves, eating together in community. We prayed together as Beings for Beings. ~•~ “Spirit of the living God, you breathe on all that is fragile and strong, competent and inadequate, broken and whole. We give you thanks for the gift of life and the life-giving power of your Spirit, which renews and refreshes us with hope.” ~•~ “Let us go into the world and take with us the hope of God, our Creator, that one day we will have a world with zero new HIV infections, zero AIDS-related deaths and zero stigma and discrimination.” ~•~ #worldaidsday #aidsposada #community #prayer #wellness #seewellness #seewellnesswithin @hsfreeclinic

Last weekend I was invited to a "Bring-A-Friend" Potluck Holiday Party. Each guest was asked to bring a dish for sharing, and a friend not known by the hosts. What a fun evening eating delicious food and meeting new company! The party was a great kick off to the December holiday season. ~•~ I have been cooking more with squash the last few weeks, as it is in season now. Here is the recipe for the vegan dish I made, to be a topping for toast or crackers, or savored on its own. Your tastebuds will enjoy a spice kick!

Ek ~ One ~•~ Onkar ~ The Creator and Creation ~•~ Guru Nanak, whose birth in 1469 is celebrated this year on November 23rd, taught of the realization that there is One Supreme Reality. Infinite truth, consciousness, and bliss resides in All Beings, regardless of religion, gender, wealth, caste or form. In Everything. Every Life. Everywhere. All of Earthly Nature. There is no difference between the creator and creation. We are One Universal Flowing Melody of Energy. ~•~ Guru Nanak taught that one does not need to go the mountains to find this Being. Nor the rivers, faraway lands, temples, mosques, or churches. The truth is always Within us, Being and Being and Being through our Doing Lives. ~•~ This season we Collectively take pause to reflect on our gratitudes. We honor our fortunes and celebrate the Spirit of Life. ~•~ May we continue this tradition every day. May we continue to act from this place of thankfulness, to fill not only our bodies, but also our minds and hearts. May we do so not only for the Self, but for You and Your Neighbor, Your Being and All Beings.

“Opinion is really the lowest form of human knowledge. It requires no accountability, no understanding.

It requires profound purpose larger than the self kind of understanding.” - Bill Bullard ~•~ Many of us are in heartache at the state of humanity’s relationship with each other and Mother Earth... gunshootings... fires... destruction and fear in the midst of trauma... leaving an emptiness and alienated unsteadiness. ~•~ Let us Act from our Hearts and Help One another.

Diwali Yoga Dance ~ Day 7 of #phaseintoholidays #igyogachallenge and a week into November! How much can happen in seven days ~ so much to be grateful for... letting go, rooting on earth, and starting to make intentions for progress in the new moon and new year! • Honestly I cannot believe I can do this! I would never even try poses like this three years ago when I lived on the east coast... LA has taught me so much... the Impossible is Possible. Thank you to my teachers here! @iamemileebee @siestayoga #sugarcanepose #ardhachandrachapasana #wow #yogatherapeutics #holisticmd #acupuncture #medicalacupuncture #newmoon #diwalicelebration #wellness #seewellness #seewellnesswithin #barnesdallartpark @mandukayoga

Happy Diwali! • Diwali is the “Festival of Light," and is celebrated throughout India as a day of remembering when good conquered evil, light prevailed over dark. Oil lamps are lit, electric lights adorn homes, and fireworks light up the skies for almost a week. New clothes are worn, and gifts are exchanged. • Coming from the Sikh tradition myself, we celebrate this day in memory of a specific historical event that took place in 1619. The holiday is called Bandi Chhor Divas by the Sikhs. • As pictured above, it was on Diwali day that Guru Hargobind was released from prison, along with 52 other princes. • Guru Habgobind was the sixth guru or teacher of the Sikh faith. He was imprisoned by the Emperor Jahangir. The Emperor decided to release the saintly Guru from captivity. Guru Hargobind asked for other 52 princes to be released as well. The Emperor said that only those who who hold onto the Guru’s cloak tail would be allowed to leave the prison with him. Guru Hargobind then had a cloak made with 52 tassels, so that each prince was able to hold onto his garment and ALL left the prison together in freedom. • So today let’s ignite a flame to a candle, to remember the warmth, brilliance, and purity of LIGHT. Remember that LIGHT is within all of us - all of us Beings. Forgive your enemies and see the potential for LIGHT to burn through darkness. Reach your hands out. Hand in Hand the seemingly Impossible can become Possible - and Together, not in solitude, do we become STRONG and attain TRUE FREEDOM. • Photo: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandi_Chhor_Divas •#bandichhordivas #diwali #festivaloflights #sikh #sikhtradition #sikhnetwork #guruhargobind #light #lightoverdark #togetherwecanchange #freedom #holisticmd #acupuncture #medicalacupuncture #anesthesiologist #yoga #yogatherapeutics #wellness #seewellness #seewellnesswithin

I Voted! • With a little Reverse Warrior action :: It may seem we have been going in reverse and heading backwards, but these struggles will empower us to make change! Let’s do this! • I will admit when I look at this photo, my form is off! The perfectionist in me wants my back leg to be straightened and my front toes pointing more forward. But it is every effort that counts. Some days we do a little less, but even a little is more than nothing. One step forward is always one step forward. • For #phaseintoholidays #igyogachallenge #reversewarrior #virabhadrasana2 #vote #votesaveamerica #freedom #americanflag #letsmakechangehappen #holisticmd #anesthesiologist #medicalacupuncture #yogatherapeutics #wellness #seewellness #seewellnesswithin @iamemileebee @siestayoga @mandukayoga

Poem written on The Statue of Liberty: “The New Colossus” By Emma Lazarus Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame, With conquering limbs astride from land to land; Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame. “Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” • WE make this earth FREE. With our Voices and Action. Every effort counts, every person, one step forward forward forward. • Be Liberty. Vote Liberty. Our Golden Door will stay Open. #vote #freedom #statueofliberty #thenewcolossus #emmalazarus #america #nov6 #wellness #seewellness #seewellnesswithin Photo: Sunset, Nov 1 #nofilter #sunset #losangeles #cityofangels #fly

Witnessing Freedom _____________________ I often take some moments after work to pause from the day and meditate in the gardens at the Self Realization Fellowship. I almost did not go today, but I am trying to reframe my minutes Devoted to meditation not as another chore to be checked off the list, but as a necessity, like water or good medicine, for my self care. So I decided to carve out the time again today. ______________ As I walked into the gardens, I met a lovely Soul carrying a cage with butterflies. “I am going to free these butterflies,” she said. “Would you like to free them with me?” _______________ My heart jumped with childlike excitement at this adventure! I put my hands in the cage, and the butterflies crawled onto my fingers! They just came out of their chrysalis this morning, spreading their wings... and once taken out of the cage, would fly fly fly to the nearest tree. _______________ The chrysalis (cocoons are for moths!) is a remarkable art piece of mother nature. Jade in color with perfectly placed gold design motifs... inside the caterpillar dissolves its shape and transforms into a new physical being, with wings and the ability to Fly. _______________ What would happen if we took some moments to rest? What metamorphosis could transform in our bodies, minds, and souls? If we let the natural rhythms Just Be... _______________ And yes, I did meditate afterwards... with gratitude for this experience. _______________ #flight #wings #butterlyflight #freedom #chrysalis #pupa #metamorphosis #transformation #meditation #mindfulness #gratitude #childseyesofwonder #selfrealizationfellowship #churchofallreligions #selflove #selfcare #devotion #holisticmd #holisticmedicine #wellness #seewellness #seewellnesswithin @selfrealizationfellowship @toucheys_

Today on World Anesthesia Day, also known as Ether Day, I am remembering some of my most rewarding moments being a physician. I have traveled to El Salvador for medical mission with ASAPROSAR to help provide safe anesthesia for patients needing eye surgeries. We help many adults with cataracts, and the next day will hear about a grandmother who saw her eleven year old grandson for the first time. We also help many kiddos with strabismus. These are the moments I feel grateful for the long years of dedication and learning, for the wisdom of magical medications that can allow lives to change. #anesthesiologist #anesthesia #dreamweaver #asaprosar #elsalvador #medicalmission #worldanesthesiaday #etherday #eyesurgery #holsiticmd #wellness #seewellness #seewellnesswithin @asaprosar @asa_hq

Tree with Yayoi ~ I had a little difficulty keeping my balance in this room, art exhibit by Yayoi Kusama. After being in this room for only a few minutes, I began to feel a change in perspective, becoming small and seeing the red dots come out toward me. How amazing for art to create emotional and physical transformation. _________________ #treepose #vrikasana #museumyoga #yayoikusama #withallmyloveforthetulipsiprayforever #mauriceandpaulmarciano #holisticmd #holisticmedicine #redandwhite #ivy #wellness #seewellness #seewellnesswithin @ivyconnect @marcianoartfoundation

“Can we do tree pose?” • “Yes, if you teach me,” I replied. • I have been teaching a twenty minute meditation and yoga class at the Hollywood Sunset Free Clinic as a volunteer for about a year. We have a mix of patients and staff attend. Sometimes nobody speaks English, and the participants follow along with close observation and always leave with big smiles. Sometimes other volunteers come as well, like my dear little friend who loves doing tree pose. She has so much enthusiasm for doing the yoga that she even has started to teach portions of the class to us! • The Hollywood Sunset Free Clinic just celebrated 50 years of providing free health care services to the low income, uninsured and unemployed in the Los Angeles community. While diabetes and high blood pressure are the primary reasons for patient visits, in the last year the clinic has seen an increase in the number of stress related concerns. And decreasing stress and living a more relaxed and balanced lifestyle can help treat many physical ailments - allowing the mind and body to change from dis-ease to ease. ________________ #volunteer #seva #vriksasana #treepose #hollywoodsunsetfreeclinic #hollywood #losangeles #kidsyoga #freemedicalcare #healthcareforall #holisticmd #holisticmedicine #teachothers #wellness #seewellness #seewellnesswithin @hsfreeclinic @tacy_hsfc

50 Year Celebration of Free Care ~ Gala for Hollywood Sunset Free Clinic • The Hollywood Sunset Free Clinic celebrated 50 years of providing free health care services to the low income, uninsured and unemployed in the Los Angeles community at a gala in Barnsdale Park last night. • I have been volunteering at the clinic for the last year teaching a twenty minute meditation and yoga class to the patients, staff and other volunteers. While diabetes and high blood pressure are the primary reasons for patient visits, in the last year the clinic has seen an increase in the number of stress related concerns. And decreasing stress and living a more relaxed and balanced lifestyle can help treat many physical ailments - allowing the mind and body to change from dis-ease to ease. • What is so impressive about this clinic is the COMMUNITY it is has built, amongst those who come regularly and those who work with Selfless Devotion. It is surprisingly rare to find a network of people compassionate about their work and connected to each other- who endlessly see the One Human in All. It is a blessing to know this does exist and has endured, and to be a part of its continuing growth. _________________ #hollywoodsunsetfreeclinic #fiftyyears #gala #barnesdalepark #freecare #healthcareforall #holisticmd #holisticmedicalcare #meditation #yoga #sunset #wellness #seewellness #seewellnesswithin @hsfreeclinic @tacy_hsfc

Our moments of the last several days have left many of us feeling like a dark thick cloud hangs before us, uncertain of what the future holds, unsteady in our trust with leadership and representation. When one is not WITNESSED as whole - in their voice, actions, beliefs - it can leave a void in the heart. Leading to Separation. Anger. Despair. Now is the time to Sit Inside Your Heart. Feel it Beating. This is Possibility, Change, Creation within each of us - Each of us Human Beings. Female. Male. Shero. Hero. We are One. And TOGETHER we must use our Courage, our Voices, to continue the fight for life, liberty, and justice for all. _________________ May I be happy. May I be free from disease. May I enjoy well being. May I be free from suffering. • May you be happy. May you be free from disease. May you enjoy well being. May you be free from suffering. • May all be happy. May all be free from disease. May all enjoy well being. May none know suffering of any sort. __________________ #shero #hero #believe #ibelieveher #speakup #truth #useyourvoice #freedom #drchristineblaseyford #metoo #beinghuman #onehuman #witness #lifelibertyandjustice #america #wellness #seewellness #seewellnesswithin

Dreamweaving can be scary... About eight years ago, I took a workshop on Pranayama, or Breath Control. I learned a simple tool to help check one’s breathing state. Putting one hand on the belly and one hand on the chest, one can feel which hand is moving during inspiration and expiration. Movement of the chest reflects use of our flight or flight tactics, or sympathetic nervous system. Movement of the abdomen reflects use of our calming tools, or parasympathetic nervous system. I went back to work the next day, and decided to check in on my breathing pattern while in the operating room. I was surprised to find out that I HOLD MY BREATH all day at work and my belly does not move... only my upper chest muscles moved. I am responsible for watching others’ heart and lungs - and I cannot give myself adequate oxygen. This was my Wake Up Call - to take care of myself. And sometimes recognize the fire around me, and work to not let it burn me out. _________________ from breakfast with lovely Soul Sarita _________________ #selfcare #breathe #pranayama #bellybreathing #anesthesia #anesthesiologist #dreamweaver #holisticmd #holisticmedicine #medicalacupuncture #wellness #seewellness #seewellnesswithin @atiras1007 @asa_hq
