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 Guidance – Thought for the Day

If you have been feeling low and sad, if you have been feeling drained out of vital energy, it is time for a spot of acknowledgement and appreciation by none other than the most important person in your life; the person who actually creates your realities. YOU

Say to yourself:

I pat myself on the back and congratulate myself for all that I’ve done. I deserve praise, because even if my sights are set on climbing higher mountains, it’s important for me to acknowledge how far I’ve come. I thank myself for getting through the tough time and enjoying the easy ones.

I know of people who will find doing something like this utterly ridiculous and pointless however what drives them is their own fears to face themselves. You know why is it easy to stay stuck in the old patterns of self-criticism and rebellion because it helps us stay comfortable in familiar zones (not happy) and to have a reason to feel that we are fighting for something. People want to fit-in in a society where struggle seems to be the way to be…..I have often heard in gatherings and parties…people tend to talk about how difficult their life is, how Mondays are the worst days of the week and how fatigued and tired they are because they have such difficult jobs and lives, how no matter how much they do, it is never enough. What they don’t understand is, everytime they say any of these statements, these statements act as affirmations which work towards creating the exact reality for them!! It is unfortunate that people do not understand the power of thoughts…they talk about self-fulfilling prophecies however they do not pay attention to their own prophecies.

Today the Angels want us to know that with every word and thought that we use and have, we are altering our realities, creating new realities so it is important that we choose them carefully. Also they want us to specifically be aware of the light within us, they want us to appreciate ourselves and be grateful for all the blessings we have in our lives; gratitude is the sure shot way to attract more good in our lives. Today, let us not focus on how hard the work that we do is, instead let us focus on the wonderful work we do….let us be thankful for being well and alive today, for having enough to eat, for the house that we stay in, for the friends we have, for the clothes and shoes we have, for our families and for the support that the Universe constantly gives us.

Be Grateful and Be Appreciative

A bend does not have to be an end!!!!!

You know there are many bends on life’s road….sometimes we cannot see what’s up ahead and our hearts are filled with fear and doubts….however ….if we choose to allow the bend to turn into an end then we would never know how far we could have gone….what all we could have learned….who all we could have met…..Life is a Journey….and only you can decide how far you want to go……………there is nothing wrong with settling down and not going further, as long as that is what you truly want and it gives you happiness. The question is……….. does it??

More often than not, the fears we feel are not even our own…it is actually fears which others have felt because of failures that they have experienced or because of the successes that they could not achieve. How often do we put off or give up doing something because someone tells us…this won’t pay the bills…or how do you know this will work out better….or you should stay in this relationship or job, atleast you know what is wrong here…..it’s better to be sure about such things…………oh! this list could be endless. We are forever being told and shown by others what we can or can’t do…..the benchmarks set for us….our abilities constantly graded against what our parents, peers or predecessors have achieved or not. While they have their lessons to learn and their choices to make……should that define YOU?

So often, we see that a child is being told to be better at something simply because someone else is……..their uniqueness but a forgotten fairy tale as opposed to be a beacon which should guide the child in this life. Another classic example is when we see a child equate love as an expression of having achieved something or having done something right. We have witnessed numerous accounts of people who study hard all their lives because they want to achieve the dreams that someone dreamt on their behalf…while it is entirely a noble act as long as they are happy doing it….more often than not this results in them being miserable, frustrated and unhappy about themselves.

The point is not what thousands of people are doing or not….the point is do we want to continue being in this stagnant frame of mind…state of being…where every thought, course of action and choice is determined by the abilities or lack thereof….. of… others? Like I have mentioned earlier, if we stop because we are happy to be where we are, it is truly magnificent because we are following our heart and mind however if we stop because we are scared to go on or scared of failing someone……then you have something to think about.

For every reality that we believe in….there is an alternate reality we can create……..however….creation requires imagination, faith and above all the courage to move out from the known to explore the unknown. Our world today would be devoid of so many things if someone did not believe in them once upon a time…….like electricity, aircrafts, telephones, internet, telekinesis…..when they believed in these……they were driven and guided by the Universe for the Law of Attraction has always existed…….what you think about the most……creates your realities.

So, today ask yourself…..are you truly happy being who the world believes you are…….doing what you are doing and being where you are…if yes…..brilliant…..but if no…..then would you give yourself a chance to dream your dreams, sing your song, dance to your inner rhythm and take that leap of Faith. You have chosen this beautiful time to be alive on earth because you have a purpose………………find out what that is and live that purpose.

When I was first faced with rappelling down a 90 feet wet and slippery dam which ended in absolute rocky ground…………..I was certain that I SIMPLY cannot do it because I have a dislocated knee and I would not be able to keep my balance and secretly was afraid of what a fool I would make of myself………..I am so glad that I had people who pushed…………they pushed till I had to push all these thoughts out of my mind………however…..when they put the harness on and asked me to let go of the railing and simply put my complete weight on the harness….I thought this man is crazy if  thinks I would listen to THIS bit of instruction….he kept asking me to trust…..and I kept tightening my grip on the railing……..once again I was in the grim hold of my fears and I almost gave up. Then I heard my inner voice telling me….if I could do it….I could learn to let go and TRUST the process…………….and I DID. After the first few steps…..the exhilaration I felt cannot be justifiably expressed through words.

I know that thousands of people rappel everyday in much harsher and scarier places and this might be a simple task for them…………………..yet I know to me that day and that deed redefined my abilities and my faith in myself and the Universe. Incidently, that act not only brought out something New in me, it helped me release a lot of Old. It made me believe that everyday, there are new things which we can do or redefine our old things and there is always support available….we only need to believe and be on the look out for it.

So I say again…………….

You know there are many bends on life’s road….sometimes we cannot see what’s up ahead and our hearts are filled with fear and doubts….however ….if we choose to allow the bend to turn into an end then we would never know how far we could have gone….what all we could have learned….who all we could have met…..Life is a Journey….and only you can decide how far you want to go……………there is nothing wrong with settling down and not going further, as long as that is what you truly want and it gives you happiness. The question is……….. does it??

A Bend need not be an end…just a mere suggestion of a new turn on life’s road 🙂

 

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

The Law of Least Effort

The Law of Least Effort

The Law of Least Effort is the principle of least action, of no resistance. This is, therefore, the principle of harmony and love.

 Act from love. Least effort is thus expended, because nature is held together by the energy of love.

When we allow our actions to be inspired by Love, we automatically become more……simply more……. patient, understanding, trustworthy, charitable and most impotantly…Peaceful.

Attend to spirit rather than ego. When your internal reference point is your spirit, you are immune to criticism and unfearful of any challenge.

It is only our Ego-Self which creates insecurities, operates out of fear and makes everything look bleak, doubtful and simply keeps us away from claiming and reveling in our true potential. It is like an attack of a Trojan Horse on our sacred hard-drive which then just completely establishes its control wherever it feels like………… leaving us in the lurch meanwhile with a false sense of security that all is Like we Wish and Think it is.

Accept people, situations, circumstances, and events as they are, not as you wish they were.

Ever wonder! If only it was like this, I would be all ok…………If only he (or she) did (or did not) do this one little teeny tiny thing..everything would be just perfect……….well…the truth is ……you have your mind map and they have their’s……when you actually give room to people to be themselves….only then can they truly BE and really if a person cannot be completely true to themselves how can they be true to you. Our wishes can be ginormous and there isn’t a molecule wrong with that thought energy…however when our wishes insist on other people changing their wishes…..how fair is that and more importantly…..do we really feel happy at the end of the day????

When you feel upset, remember that you are not reacting to the person or the situation, but to your feelings about the person or the situation.

Well…I love this one……let us remember a time or a situation where someone did something which upset us terribly…….now honestly think….what is the first thought that runs on this very active Min(e)d field of ours……………”How could he / she do this to me? How could they not understand I would get hurt or something like that” Sounds familiar???? Now what caused this reaction….surely not the presence of the person or the deed…instead the reaction is caused by what you felt because of that action. When we are in a stressful situation……we have a choice….to Let it IN or Let it GO…….our decision decides…whether we going to trap ourselves in prisons of Self-Pity, Anger, Resentment……or Understand that while we may not condone the action….we have the choice to allow ourselves to say so and TRULY move on from there. Also let us not forget that we always have the right to choose people and situations that we allow into our lives.

Do not blame anyone or anything for your situation, including yourself; then every situation will become your teacher, and an opportunity for the creation of something new and beautiful.

I agree that this is not the easiest thing to practice….. however, a butterfly cannot have strong wings if it does not build its strength trying to break through the cocoon. When we can distance ourselves from a situation, we allow ourselves to truly observe it dispassionately and the blur becomes a picture for us to study the details of 🙂 With this amazing clarity and a relaxed mind, we can actually begin to understand why….what happened…..and how can we ensure that the situation is refined or replaced with something new and beautiful.

Completely desist from defending your point of view. Relinquish the need to convince others of your opinion.

An old adage, “when you are trying to convince too much, it suggests you are not convinced enough about it yourself”. when we try to convince too much, it is a sign that we are actually looking for approval and affirmation that what we are thinking is ok. While I agree that we need to put our point forth…..let’s do it because we want it to be expressed and known….let’s not insist that everyone should be convinced about it. After all right and wrong are relative to one’s state of mind and being. A seed needs to be given time to turn into a plant afterall and as long as you know that you are going to tend to that seed…..all is simply fine 🙂

Make a commitment to follow the path of no resistance: simply declare your intent to yourself, and you will experience fulfillment, delight, joy, freedom, and autonomy in every moment.

When your intentions are clear and your faith is strong…………..all you need to do is…..Simply Allow that intention to be realised. The universe works in magical ways and it is only when we resist, that what we resist….persists. The Law of Attraction is absolute………….like all the other Laws of Nature……..you need to BE ….after all you are a Human Being….not a Human Doing :))

Ultimately you come to the state where you do nothing and accomplish everything.

Love, Laughter and Light

🙂 Namaste 🙂

LOVE

Some Moments make us want to forget everything and just feel Love….to have and to give……..the purity of this emotion truly is phenomenal….it is all encompassing….calming and sooooo healing. When we express it ourselves…it brings out our Divinity……….our very own Magic……

There is abandon and that crazy rush which makes us Believe that everything is possible………….when we love….it doesn’t matter………it is our state of being………..the simplicity…the unconditionality of this emotion is what wins everyone over……………and makes everything a possibility

Let today just be a tribute to this Creative…All encompassing emotion LOVE…………….Say it to Yourself and to Others…..See with Love, Feel with Love….Hear with Love…………Forgive and Forget with Love……………and Always Remember………Love is what frees us of all Fears, Judgements, Critiques and above all, our Self Imposed Limitations……………..Life truly becomes an endless journey into the realms of possibilities and happiness once we experience each moment with Love and appreciate the possibilities it has……..

Simply BE in LOVE today

Shadows

We cannot ignore the shadows, they will follow us everywhere…so let’s ensure that we are aware of our shadows. The more aware we are of our shadows, the sooner we will be able to deal with them and the lesser they will be able to scare us. After all it’s the way our mind defines shadows…. as “Monsters”  which scare us or as “Shadow-Shapes” we can play around with.

Speaking of shadows, we also have shadows of our past, now…. these could be from when we were toddlers or young kids…..what’s worth knowing is, do they render us hopeless, scared, caught up in a frenzy of emotions because if they do then it is imperative for us to remove them. Just to give you an analogy, our grave fear or heights actually might be a shadow from the past where may be we saw, felt or heard something that had such a huge impact on us that it manifested as a phobia. We have a unique internal reference code system that translates all of our external experiences and stacks them in our mind. Each Neuron in our brain has a charge and that is what creates our patterns, behaviors, beliefs….well pretty much our life trajectory. Awareness is the key to releasing ourselves from patterns which adversely affect us. It is interesting to note how some kids are terrified of the boogeyman under the bed while others find it a nice cover when playing hide and seek.

More often than not fear is an absence of the “known” rather than the presence of the “unknown”. When our left brain is unable to analyse or find logic in any given situation, it resorts to creating an alternate reality which then becomes our belief or it accepts the reality as presented by someone else without really determining it’s validity….this is especially true for our formative years; most of our beliefs are created during this time. Also a huge factor is what we absorb from our environment, what we are told as kids, the behavior we witnessed of people around us while growing up….everything that we see. Whether we remember it consciously or not, it gets stored in our mind and it moulds our lives. One way or the other, every waking moment we are absorbing a serious amount of information and our mind processes it and stores it. What we choose to bring to our consciousness and resolve, release or completely accept is upto us.

What needs to be mentioned is that we certainly do have good beliefs as well in life which are the corner stones of our success. It is the limiting beliefs that we need to be able to remove from our system. Now the good news is, no matter what the shadow / belief is, how it was formed or how debilitating it is, it can be removed from our psyche. Today we are so much more aware of the power with in. Our consciousness has expanded so much; whatever we need to know can be accessed from within. It is like having our very own Master-Key to unlock the most complex of locks. All we need to do is be curious and observant of our own thought patterns, behavior antics and reactions; the next step is to question it….now this is what cracks the foundation of such beliefs, from there to finally shattering that belief structure which does not serve us in any way…any longer becomes a possibility.

Someone once told me that if you really want to find an answer, look at the right direction……….which is “With-In”

I have lived this and I got help when I finally decided to look within….. so one more thing that I firmly believe is that “When the student is ready, the Teacher appears”

Creation

 

The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves. – Carl Jung

How true these words are! It’s an old adage “Necessity is the mother of Creation”…I agree but there is more to it. In moments of necessity where we do we get our ideas from? I used to wonder (till a few years back) how is it that when under duress, our mind acts with such clarity and precision. Can we then give the credit to “survival instinct” alone? Well, I guess not…like I said earlier; there’s more than meets the eye.

In times of extreme duress, we rely more on instincts because we actually do not have time to analyse what information we get from our brains. Why then is it that these decisions are more often than not life-saving in so many ways; whether it is professionally or personally. We all have an inner voice – a voice of our higher consciousness – a voice of intuition if you please which always speaks to us. Now what we choose to do with those suggestions is another matter altogether. Like any other aspect of human anatomy, our intuition can also be honed. Angels, Ascended Masters and all other Divine entities speak to us through this inner voice and to listen to their voice, we need to calm the noises of the active brain.

When we allow our creative mind to come into play, we need to also keep an eye out for the logical mind as it may cast clouds of judgement and doubt on the creativity. This is exactly what happens naturally in situations where we are too caught up to allow the logical mind to make the decisions. Creativity is the product of the Lucid mind.

Why else would they say “Miracles are acts of faith” Faith often is not logical. Having said that, we cannot disregard our logical mind as it plays a very important part in creating a structure. I am merely saying that it is important to be open to creative ideas and solutions. Sometimes, the reason why things are not working out is because we got to simply stop being in control and allow the Universe to create Magic 🙂 If you can visualize it, you can actualize it. There is nothing that the mind thinks which does not get created in the end. Let’s remember that what is today a “Given” was once a figment of “Active Imagination” and today we are better off because someone did visualize it 🙂 (Some examples would be the Aircrafts, Mobile phones, even a heart transplant for that matter)

Three Cheers to the Dreamers for their dreams propel the Universe to expand and make way for the dreams to turn into reality!!!
