The voice of our Heart….

Logic…boundaries…rights and so called responsible actions all seem a little dim when we look into the bright…sparkly light of what our hearts tell us. When we listen to it…it’s like sunshine filtering through a dense undergrowth.

If we can trust the voice of our Hearts, we can truly vibrate at the highest frequency of joy and resonate with all that is good, nice and thoroughly magical…

So here’s to the heart…to the senseless and illogical…to smiles n giggles…to absolute wonder and magic ❤

It’s your Life……Live it Your Way..!!!

You can choose for that day to be “Today”

It is the single most liberating experience of being alive, when we actually understand our true power and our role in creating…(designing if you will) our lives. The moment when we stop asking rhetorical questions, finding someone to blame and trying to control every aspect of our lives as per the benchmark “rights” and “wrongs” is the exact moment when we actually start living. It is not an easy feat especially with our years of conditioning and of course the rampant ravings of people always trying to prove their innocence in a situation, relationship or event gone wrong. After all if it was someone else’s doing, aren’t we safe….well safe enough to be the victim???

Don’t get me wrong, I have had my fair share of playing “victim” and it isn’t that I have any dearth of patience with people who are still a bit far away from finding their true power. No it isn’t that at all, infact the reason I harp on and on about it is because it took me a fair few reminders before it clicked one fine day and the “Penny dropped” 🙂

It is our thoughts, whether of fear or Love, envy or appreciation, and other emotions which actually bring about a reality. The Law Of Attraction rules!

Another aspect which I definitely want to write about is just because we claim our “power” does not mean that we become less compassionate, less social or less empathetic….it simply means that we do not blame others for our choices and we begin to connect with ourself enough for us to respect our own likes and dislikes; it makes us clear about who we really are and accept ourselves (every last bit of us…aspects that would make us proud or cringe in shame). It infact makes us less judgemental and opinionated about the people and world around us………we can appreciate the relativity of “Rights” and “Wrongs”…… so we can begin to see things as they are as opposed to seeing things through our conditioned, preprogrammed mind.

So here’s to Life….Live it Your Way!!!

The Journey from Darkness to Light….!!!

Well this post has taken me forever to write and I guess I sort of know why!! Everytime I sat down to finish it I somehow felt that I am not going to be able to do justice, I mean the proverbial Darkness has sooooo many shades and intensity levels and I felt truly at a loss of words. I kept thinking why is it becoming such a task and then I had to remind myself to breathe 🙂 and just go with the flow…I mean isn’t that the whole point…..to just let go and pen down what comes to mind!! So here goes….well….my flow of thoughts 🙂

We all encounter darkness….doesn’t matter when and how. It is probably an essential part of our existence too because our “Journey” is all about moving through the Darkness into Light. So in that respect, I believe Darkness deserves to be written about and explored a little more. There are many textbook definitions about darkness like the most “googled” one is “Darkness, in contrast with brightness, is a relative absence of visible light It is the appearance of black in a color space.” Well no matter how we perceive it, whether as an all-consuming force, a recurring heartache, a blanket of complete desolation or the mere absence of light…we know that Darkness exists. And in a way…it is only in Darkness that we can truly appreciate the Light…isn’t it???

Now that brings me to how I connect to Darkness? In this post, I use it as a metaphor to define the Darkness that dwells in all of us……Anger,  Insecurity, Jealousy, Resentment, Hatred,  Self-Criticism, Self-Loathing, and most importantly Fear. To me Fear is the absolute darkness because it truly can paralyze us into believing things about ourselves that are so debilitating that it takes quite a while to get ourselves out of it. Now the reason I was so keen to write about Darkness is because I wanted to share what an important part of our journey it is because it is only when we are aware of the Darkness, can we move towards the Light. I am sure that it is a known fact that the longer we have lived with any of the above mentioned emotions, the harder it is to get rid of it; however there is this one more critical aspect…..I have come to speak and work with loads of people through the therapy and counselling sessions or card readings and more often than not it is anger/ fear/ criticism etc for self which is the most destructive of all and the hardest to reconcile with. Even when I assist them through forgiveness sessions, the hardest part is when people have to forgive themselves; I guess that is because to forgive oneself would require us to own up to having made choices which were not (for lack of a better word) “right”. This is where most people stumble as understandably it is easier to deal with the pain if the source is external; it is easier to believe that someone else did “that” to us than believing that our unconscious thoughts brought us to that reality; it takes a lot of love, guidance and gentleness to bring people out of their self-imposed judgements and opinions to help them see the light, to help them see how liberating it is to finally let go of the baggage that they have been carrying with them for so long. It indeed can be more exhausting and challenging than climbing the steepest mountain peaks.

The light is there within us all but the darkest layer (before we reach the light within) is an amalgamation of Self-Anger, Self-Loathing, Self-Criticism and a strong sense of being helpless …..of being a victim. Infact I have come to realize that most part of our journey is about moving away from feeling and behaving like a victim and moving towards accepting our power in creating our lives and making our choices. Only when we become aware of this reality, can we actually move toward healing. I have also seen that the healing process always depends on the person being healed, I mean on the readiness of being healed. Having said that, I also firmly believe that whoever takes this step is always guided and there in lies the very essence of ascension. 

We need to understand that our deepest fears often lay unresolved and at times even unrecognised by us and this is where most of our behaviors and patterns of reaction originate from hence few of the most popular statements ever, ” I just don’t know what happened” or “I don’t know, why I behave like that”, or “I just couldn’t understand where that came from”………… sounds familiar???? I bet it does…..happened to me as well. It is always this absolute need to finally get the answers and break the “jinx” which prods us…pushes us toward the Light……….

One can write pages about this and someday I will……………for today I guess I just want to impress upon you the fact that it is alright if everything seems dark and desolate right now………….it is always the darkest before that first ray of Sun shines through…shattering the illusion of doom….all you gotta do is believe in the Sun

Even the world’s darkest, dreariest, longest tunnel ends and you can see the light…………….what matters is are you ready to keep on walking and moving ahead or you going to be caught up in the darkness of the past….after all in journey are the lessons…we cannot learn new things by being stagnant ❤

 

 

Angel Message – Take It Easy

Today’s Angel Message is from Daily Guidance from your Angels and as always it is a beautiful message. I am sure whenever you read it, it will be the right time for you to read it. This is a combination of the literal message and my intuitive interpretation of it.

Take it Easy

Sometimes you struggle and strain to achieve so much that you unwittingly block yourself. This is especially True when you want something so badly that you try over and over again to make it happen. The Universe responds to the fear imprinted into the energy of struggle. the underlying anxiety that may be what you desire won’t materialize is mirrored back to you in the form of limitations, delays and unsatisfactory manifestations.

That’s why surrendering brings about immediate results. When you deliver your wish to the Universe, you need to kn ow that it will be taken care of. Humor me if you will…however when you go to eat in a restaurent…..you choose what you wish to eat and then you place your order………if you have any specific cooking instructions you add it to the order and then you just enjoy the company, ambience and everything else around you….You have the belief that they will take care of it. Using the same analogy when you deliver your wish to the Universe, try to release your fears associated with that wish because it is the fear based energy which lowers your vibration and actually attracts more fear based events in the forms of limitations, delays etc. Letting it go is a statement that says, “I know my wish is manifesting in the best possible way, even if I am not certain exactly how it will happen.” This faith is akin to opening the front door and welcoming your desire into your house.

Having said this, We are not trying to imply that we do not want you to make any efforts…..what we are trying to say is when you are making that effort…..allow only thoughts of success and completion with Grace to enter your mind……visualize how laying one brick at a time is actually creating your Dream. When we are in a state of acceptance, Faith and Gratitude….we release this energy into the Universe and as all thoughts have energy….they by using the Law of Attraction attract more such events which again allow us to be grateful for them. When we take one step with conviction…….the next step is already formed for us to step on 🙂

So, take it EASY today 🙂 allow the Universe to do the work of creating your dreams….just try to be conscious and aware of the present moment so that you are able to receive the guidance from the Universe. Your job was done once you made the wish so turn it over to the Universe to God and enjoy the creative ways in which your prayers gets answered.

It is natural to feel scared when dreaming of breaking out of your old yet comforting and familiar life and choices…….however ask for guidance to help you move out once you know that the old is not serving you or fulfilling you anymore and when you receive that guidance….ask for courage and support to follow through that guidance…………allow your mind to relax and take it easy……BREATHE…..the best ideas are conceived when you Take it Easy and open yourself up to the Creative Force in the Universe…………….Creativity is very soft and gentle….you need to provide a peaceful environment and a Quiet and Relaxed mind for it to flow freely 🙂

Don’t forget, when you lost that key and was trying desperately to find it…………..all you found was more frustration……..then you told yourself that oh! it’ll come to me later………..and when you were doing something else and your mind was not caught up in that “Search”  you did remember…………that your Key was in the back pocket of your Favorite Jeans 🙂 all you did was allowed your Mind to relax and gave it permission to exit from that chaotic environment so that the solution could surface.

Easy Peasy 🙂

So no matter how much your heart and conscious mind protests…………………just Take It Easy, for they will Thank you later for it.

Much Love and Light

Being True to Yourself is all that matters

Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.

And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

By Max Ehrmann

The Simplicity of being a Child!!!

Simplicity of being a child……….a thought that has often crossed my mind especially in the last few days. As I observed my 2-year-old nephew, I came to realize even more poignantly the faith…the absolute Faith that a child never seems to be without. Whether they are in a room or outside or in a moving car……..they just Believe that there will always be someone to hold them if there were to be a likely fall. Even after a fall, a child will never get scared to walk again or run or go out to play. No matter how vicious the fight, the next morning a Child again goes looking out for that friend; after getting scolded by a parent, a child still loves them. No matter how little or how much they have….they share because they want to and this desire is not fuelled by duty or righteousness……………..it is just their heart’s desire. They believe in Fairies and Angels, in beautiful worlds filled with absolutely gorgeous realities, they wonder how a bud turns into a flower, they believe in the man on the moon. 

 They don’t know how to hold a grudge or how to stop smiling.  They are the epitome of unconditional love….they just will avoid a person if they don’t feel comfortable….they do not slander a person if they don’t somehow gel with them. They just trust their instincts and allow their bodies to tell them when to expect what. They are so open about what they like and do not like….they just don’t have the understanding of Judgement…..hence they are completely themselves where-ever they are. The curiosity and inquisitiveness which is so innate to them is what propels them to try new things without fear, they do not have even an inkling of what is it to suppress. They don’t get scared of being labeled as dumb or foolish if they don’t know something. They are just Pure Beings of Love and happy to BE.

Why is it then that we destroy this beauty and innocence of a child to turn them into people who are competitive yet never satisfied….want to earn more yet never have the time to enjoy that………..want to love yet somehow forget how………..want to cry yet get scared of the labels…..want to learn new things and explore new places yet suppress these feelings……want to play yet don’t have the time………want to call their friend yet think too much about losing the fight………judge people basis what they can do for them……stop listening to the voice of their souls…………..lose their Faith….and ultimately forget how to be happy…..and thus starts their journey to look within themselves and to go looking for Happiness….something they were born with.

The good news is that today more people than ever before are working towards ensuring that the kid in us….stays there…happy and healthy. It ain’t wrong to grow up and learn what we are meant to learn on our journey on this planet, I mean after all we choose to be born to learn lessons and progress on our soul journey but who says we cannot keep the child within us to help us on this journey and trust me it is possible….we might get hurt or disappointed on this journey but we will always have the child in us to help us smile, get up and walk again or may be Run….who knows….after all then we will have our Faith in Miracles right where it should be…………in our hearts 🙂

If you are looking for inspiration, look at some of your baby photographs because all you need you will find there………….you will find the True You….Fearless and Free….ready to just BE

Beautiful Words

The Four Reliances:

First, rely on the spirit and meaning of the teachings, not on the words;

Second, rely on the teachings, not on the personality of the teacher;

Third, rely on real wisdom, not superficial interpretation;

And Fourth, rely on the essence of your pure Wisdom Mind, not on judgmental perceptions.

It is better to conquer yourself Than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, Not by angels or by demons, Heaven or hell.

With gentleness overcome anger. With generosity overcome meanness. With truth overcome deceit.

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.

The Light is Within

It is amazing how quick we are to judge and condemn the world around us and yet we shy away from accepting what truly needs to change within us. What we see around us is nothing but a reflection of what is within us. If we do not have insecurity within us then we would not be bothered by insecurity because our vibrations would not match and therefore won’t allow that match.

Once we begin the best and the most intriguing exploration ever of ourself, we automatically become more patient, empathetic and reflective. Then even if we view let’s say an episode of insecurity, we would be able to understand that whoever is experiencing or creating insecurity has a lesson to learn which can only happen when they are ready therefore we can empathize with them as opposed to judge them for their behavior. The best that we can do in this situation is to just to make them aware of the situation and be there because they will choose to understand only when they are ready and Trust me when the Student is ready, the Teacher appears 🙂

The best way to prevent war is to visualize peace within and around……truly the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step and the transformation of any world begins with the transformation of self.

If you want to awaken all of humanity,

Then Awaken all of yourself.

If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world,

Then eliminate all that is dark & negative in yourself.

Truly the greatest gift you have to give is that of Your own Self-Transformation.

~ Lao Tzu

Faith does not question how….Faith only know that it IS

Such beautiful words…….so simply put but they speak volumes
