A letter to men looking for Lomi Lomi

If you are looking on my website, or any other massage therapists website for this type of massage between 11pm and 6am, I am going to bet you are not looking for just a massage.

To take a stand for other therapists who don't know how, or are uncomfortable talking about this subject, I am going to go out on a limb and guess that you are looking for prostitution.

How Lomi Lomi is associated with this, I have no idea.

I do know that by calling or texting practitioners who do Lomi Lomi massage and assuming that there are other services (um - prostitution) is a type of sexual violation and energetic assault on that therapist. Some people I know have even felt so violated that it felt like a rape to them.

As a woman, I find this behavior unfamiliar.

Women don't call male massage therapists asking for sexual favors.

And I can bet that if you found out your wife or girlfriend was doing this you'd be pretty darn upset.

Before calling a therapist for services, please stop for a moment and ask yourself why you think this appropriate socially acceptable behavior. Because you saw it a movie? Movies, TV, and porn are not real life. Even reality TV is not real, but staged for desired outcomes for the producers. (I know people in the industry.)

I end by saying that I have no judgement towards you, but would ask you to think before calling anyone. And also to think about the person you are calling and how they, or their partner, may feel about your actions in an already vulnerable conversation for all parties involved.

With heart, Mahalo Nui Loa

Lomi Lomi ponderings...

A direct download from the new moon energy at 3am this day about Lomi Lomi...

On the mystical side - and yes, there is a mystical side to Lomi Lomi and to life, no matter how much you deny this.

** Perhaps you are drawn to Lomi Lomi because it mirrors what is inside your heart.
It brings up and connects to what your heart desires. **
 

NOT what the physical body wants or what the mind thinks it needs. That is always an outside, egoic force by the way. But the heart itself.

Time to Relax

Some people just need to learn to relax completely before they are connected to their body and in touch with the body,mind,spirit relationship that is uniquely theirs.

Sometimes people just need to learn to relax.

By relax, I mean - s l o w _ d o w n.
Slow down the quest for perfection. The quest for perfection that the internet, and Hollywood, and magazines, and books, and all media outlets inundate our society with as a whole and us, as individuals. Slow down from the anxiety and unreachable heights this may lead us to.

So, I repeat for myself too - some people just need to learn to relax completely and slow down, period.

Lomi Lomi wows!!!

Another few weeks have gone by and I am so amazed by the incredible people I am blessed to work with for Lomi Lomi. Someone ready to tap into a new part of themselves, see themselves in a different way, and experience something new and profound about the world around them.

I recently had a client tell me what happened for them after a session that reminded me of how that happened to me too!!! Super cool.
It came down to not being able to distinguish the boundaries of their body/skin with the room around them, including the music, the air, the warmth of the heat. And a bit of a revelation that they weren't as solid as they thought they were.  That they really were energy! (A bit disorienting, but ultimately okay with some deep process work.)

I know, "WTF??" right? Well, this can actually happen. This infinite feeling of being at one with everything: the air, the sounds,  humanity, the universe.

When this happened to me, I remember just feeling so free. No boundaries at all. Experiencing this crazy conscious connection with everything. Trees, food, rocks, rain... Even with my clothes when I put them back on.
Perhaps daily meditation, plant ceremony, and drug use as a teenager prepared me for this experience as it just felt right and didn't freak me out.

I didn't feel my ego or personality fighting for its place in life right then. I was just being!
What a divine encounter within and without. To just be without ego and persona. Just me. Being with authentic self, and in alignment with everything else.

Your Lomi Lomi awaits you...

Your Lomi Lomi awaits you...



There's a time to share, and this is it! Mahalo to this beautiful soul for reminding me of this experience on my journey. Inspiring me to continue on and be present for others, and point them to the right person for extra assistance if needed.

Blessings to everyone.
Sat Nam. Lisa Kai

Quick Veggie Hummus

Aloha!!! I just made this delicious hummus>
It took about 20 minutes form start to finish - that is, adding all the ingredients to the food processor, turning on the machine, and putting into a bowl to nosh on!

You will definately need a food processor of some kind. I have a Cuisinart, and you could use a high speed blender such as a Vitamix as well.

Here it is - the ingredients and directions are below the pictures below.

2c. raw chickpeas soaked for 8 hours or 1 can chickpeas well rinsed 5-6 artichoke hearts 1/4c. fresh sesame seeds 1 really full handful of fresh spinach 2-3 heaping TBSP raw sunflower seeds 2TBSP EVOO salt and pepper to taste to your liking

5-6 artichoke hearts
1/4c. fresh sesame seeds
1 really full handful of fresh spinach
2-3 heaping TBSP raw sunflower seeds
2TBSP EVOO
salt and pepper to taste to your liking

The sunflower seeds and fresh sesame seeds give the hummus a fantastic nutty flavor. If you don't feel adventurous, cut out the sunflower seeds. The sesame seeds replace the processed tahini.

As you can see, one spinach leaf didn't want to join in the fun. Oh well, it was eaten right then as a tester!

Voila! Fini! (No spinach leaf left..hehe)

Eat with your favorite cut up veggies or some yummy crackers. Personally, I also like it on a peice of toast with some fresh spouts on top! But I get it if that's a bit too healthy for you. No problem man, enjoy it however it pleases YOU! Enjoy!
