A Prosperous Vision
Paula Whang-Ramos


"The primary skill required for serving life is the ability to get out of the way, to remove the constricting stops of the small self and 
open to a greater vision of possibility
." ~Yogacharya Ellen Grace O’Brian, The Jewel of Abundance, p. 221



Opening to a greater vision of possibility is the grand adventure into our soul’s prosperous wholeness. We listen and follow the soul’s yearning to intentionally live as an individual expression of the Source of wholeness. The journey into the soul’s prosperous wholeness reveals unparalleled joy, wisdom, and abundance in the limitless freedom and endless opportunity that is revealed from the grace of its Source.

Let Your Light Shine
Paula Whang-Ramos


Spiritual practices are for clarifying the mental field so that the inner light of the divine Self can shine through it.”
~Yogacharya Ellen Grace O’Brian, The Jewel of Abundance, p. 193



Kriya Yoga offers time-tested spiritual practices that reveal the true Self and allow our inner lights to shine. The Yamas/restraints and Niyamas/observances offer ethical guidelines to live from our highest Self. With daily practice, the Yamas/restraints help us live from gross to subtle expressions of nonharming, truthfulness, nonstealing, the right use of our vital force, and nonattachment to the outcome of our actions. The Niyamas/observances guide us into deeper soul purity, contentment, self-discipline inspired by the soul’s joy, self-inquiry into the truth of our divine nature, and self-surrender into the Source of wholeness that we are. And, our lights begin to shine brighter as we listen and live into greater inner peace, compassion, spiritual empowerment, and joy for the highest good of all.

Additionally, our daily superconscious meditation is the foundation of our spiritual practice. In meditation, peace, joy, and wisdom are experienced from within as the bliss of the soul is revealed and affirmed. The effects of our meditation practice enhance our daily practice of the Yamas/restraints and the Niyamas/observances for the full experience of a divinely blessed life. Blessings and challenges are welcomed in equal measure because the soul uses all experiences to move us closer to the realization of our divine Self. 

If you want to experience the power of these practices, then join us on Saturday, 06/01/2024 at BLC for The Jewel Of Abundance Retreat. Gift your Self an afternoon of inspirational teachings and useful practices to let your divine light show you the inner way to your essential wholeness. Please see home page and scroll down for more info.

Hear The Inner Call
Paula Whang-Ramos


There is much we can do to realize our innate potential by cooperating with the infinite and its grace-filled prospering power.
The positive changes we make on the physical, mental, and spiritual levels of our being all clear the way for that power to express in and through our life.”
~Yogacharya Ellen Grace O’Brian, The Jewel of Abundance, p. 183



Have you ever noticed a positive interrelationship between different lifestyle changes? For example, making healthier food choices can inspire us to exercise a little more, spend less time on electronic devices, and be more intentional about what we choose to read or study. Small changes in one area of our life can expand our consciousness into the Wholeness that is continually flowing through all aspects of our life. 

When we do our part by making life choices that serve our highest good, we make an inner turn away from life choices led by the fear-based poverty consciousness of ego. Instead, we turn more deeply within to the prosperity consciousness of the soul. As an individual expression of Wholeness, the sentience, wisdom, and joy of the soul is in harmony with the power, presence, and wisdom of divine grace. The more we listen and follow the positive inner calling of the soul, the more grace-filled options will be revealed to meet our highest good!

The Power To Choose
Paula Whang-Ramos


We arrange conditions in our mind conducive to success by changing any thought patterns that are not consistent with thriving.”
~Yogacharya Ellen Grace O’Brian, The Jewel of Abundance, p. 185



​How can we change unhelpful thoughts into those consistent with thriving and prosperous lives? The Yoga Sutras, a foundational Yogic text advises: “To weaken and neutralize harmful inclinations, replace them with constructive actions” (Yoga Sutra 2.33). Yogic wisdom tells us that we can cultivate a quality opposite the one that does not serve our highest good.

Cultivating the opposite quality begins by recognizing when we are preoccupied with limiting thoughts. Instead of reacting to or feeding these thoughts, we choose, again and again, to meet these thoughts with even-minded patience. Our meditation practice can help quiet the mind so we can remember and experience our innate joy, peace, and abundance. This deeper level of consciousness can inspire soul qualities more useful to help us navigate daily challenges to live in the highest way.

Drawing from divine Wholeness within, we can choose courage instead of fear, love instead of hate, forgiveness instead of judgment, flexibility instead of resistance, and compassion instead of anger. From courage, love, forgiveness, flexibility, and compassion we can open into our soul’s infinite potential to guide us through life challenges into the spiritual prosperity that we all deserve.
