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 🙂

Light always dispels darkness

When was the last time, you saw the light not dispel the darkness………..No matter the darkness of thunderstorms, the mists, the fog or the night………it may have taken time to shine bright and clear but it did……….our Inner Guidance is like light…..through the thunderstorms of hatred, the mist of confusion and the fog of criticism and fear…..our Inner Voice shines through….. we need only pay attention and believe in our Inner Light.

I can bet my bottom dollar that if you rack your brains, you will certainly find at least a couple of instances where you are consciously aware of your  inner voice….it could be for something as easy as not to take a particular train or to call a particular person or something similar. I mean how many times have I heard people say ” I knew instinctively what to do or say”…well actually I have lost count.  So what do you think that was?? from my personal experience I know that when I say that I knew instinctively I was referring to something in my head telling me the way out.

There have been instances where my friends have told me that they knew instinctively how to fix an electronic device or while cooking, they had a brain -wave and they added ingredients which were not even mentioned in the recipe and yet it turned out super or while driving they knew instinctively which turn to take when they were driving to a new destination……oh!! the stories that I have heard.

What is funny though is that inspite of the accuracy of our instinctive call for action, we don’t seem to be able to put our faith in it. I guess it is because there are times where people feel that this voice has also allegedly given them wrong advice. In reality, we all have two voices which exist within us….one is the voice of our instinct or our higher consciousness and the other is the voice of our ego self. Now how we feel and how the message impacts us depends on which voice did we actually listen to!!! The basic difference is that what the Divine Inner Guidance tells us will never create fear, insecurity or any such fear based feelings with-in us where as the voice of ego will. Even when the Inner Voice guides us away from something, it isn’t inspired by fear……instead it is inspired by us moving towards something more aligned with our energy system and personal growth.

We need to understand that today we are in a much more evolved energetic phase of existence which means that we are on an accelerated path to self discovery which cannot happen if we do not attempt to listen to our inner voice. After all, we are blessed with our very own beacon of light….now all we need to do is follow the light. There is an endless expanse of possibilities stretched out just for us to connect to………..how long will you allow your fear to deprive you from finding out and connecting with your True-Self???

Love & Light & Smiles

From Fear to Faith

 

I have learnt that at times no matter how hard I try to reign in my mind…it will run with fear instead of faith…….and I have also learnt that it is ok…………we need to feel our fears completely before we can say “You do not control me anymore, I release you” and in that moment we take our power back and actually release ourselves. It is during times of extreme duress that we are truly scared and it is also during times of extreme duress that we witness our true strengths………our true selves………….when we don ‘t have an option but to look into the mirror and see the fear in our eyes; it is in that moment that we know that only we can do something about it. These are the moments when a mother can lift the VAN off of her child…….these are the moments which connects us to our true selves. Every fear has the potential to paralyse us and every fear also has the potential to point us towards our true strengths……..We just need to allow it to happen………we are hardwired to feel Fear however we choose to witness and acknowledge our Strengths.

When we operate out of fear or obligation, we live a made up life, a life where our true worth is measured against how good an actor we are……….and when we hide behind our fears we are doing exactly the same thing. There is this scream which is locked inside us……..which wants us to scream out loud and declare “don’t be afraid of a little bit of pain….pleasure is on the other side” and I bet that every one of us has experienced at least one such situation in life where we faced our fears and said “You do not control me anymore, I release you now” and that moment is when the struggle ends and when the caterpillar turns into the butterfly.

It is ok to be afraid as long as you face your fears and then release them…….to live without fear is DIVINE ❤

 

Being Spiritual

The question is “What is Spirituality?”…there are myriad answers, depending on who do you speak with. The one that seems quite prevalent is the one which claims that being spiritual means moving away from the materialistic world, giving up your pleasures and leisure and leading a somewhat spartan life. I with all due respect to all who hold this point of view have a different take. Spirituality is a search………search of self….exploration to understand the depth of our consciousness; it is about understanding the Divine flow of energy. It is about finding balance…..and that balance only means accepting ourselves and every aspect of ourselves. It is about being truly whole………and understanding that there is power which pulsates within our beings, which moves us and creates constantly for us…through us.

Being Spiritual is diametrically opposite to renouncing the materialistic world…it actually means finding balance while you enjoy this world and all that you do. If your life’s purpose requires you to be a soldier and protect your country, you will hardly find peace by renouncing that and sitting idle in a mountain resort. It is imperative to understand that everything that we are and that we do is woven intricately with the fabric of Spirituality as Spirit is energy and we are beings of energy….. energy flows through us…around us. The flow of energy does not stop to convince us or does not require our belief in it…..it just “Is”. Our True Self is in complete harmony with this flow. This “True Self” is a part of the cosmos hence is completely balanced and is peaceful………..it flows like Water without distinguishing easy or rocky terrain….it shines like Sun both on what we know is good and what we term as bad……it does not judge or choose….it is LOVE in its purest form. We are all part of this Divine Universe…..This Divine Universe is part of the Divine Multiverse…………if you are essentially a part of the Divine how can you not be Divine.

Being spiritual means to simply embark on this inner journey of finding this “True Self”. While on this journey, we do not need to give up our worldly lives for we are meant to live in this world and it is created as the platform for us to learn and grow from. It only means to listen to that tiny little voice whispering inside us, urging us to look beyond what our trained senses tell us…………to look beyond all man created imperfections and rejoice instead in the beauty which exists in all.

Once we discover this “True Self” it is like in the vast ocean and finding the bottom of the ocean where there is a magnificent world of its own. This space then becomes the proverbial “suspended” reality where we can then relinquish all fears which plague us. We are whole, less needy to seek approvals or acceptance from others, less judgemental of others life’s and choices, more loving and accepting of not only others’ but ourselves, we are more forgiving and doing so and being so releases us. When we find this space, there are limitless possibilities to create and enjoy and rejoice……….for this is where “Real Magic” is found. Even a glimpse of this “True Self” is enough to propel us on this Journey of “Being Spiritual”………..and then whatever we do and wherever we are and whoever we are with is infused with love and balance; we are more productive as we move from the space of limitations to that of possibilities. Once we start on the road to find our “Self”, we will notice how our physical bodies become healthier, how stress and anger dissipates from our lives and how peace radiates from our beings. This is because all dis-eases are a result of unresolved emotions and unassimilated lessons of our lives which manifest in the physical bodies…………once we become aware of the innate connection between body, mind and soul…we are automatically respectful of all three and therefore more attentive of what they tell us.

Now, I have been asked, does finding our “True Self”, means we will never again get angry or scared or judgemental or harbor ill intentions for others…………Well the answer is ……….certainly not for we are in this world and here those aspects are a constant and will be till our collective consciousness moves to the next level and no longer needs this reality to learn from…however it means that when we do get caught up in this wave of low energetic thoughts, we are aware of our thoughts and what actions they inspire and therefore we are able to release these thoughts with less resistance…………it means that earlier a fight or event which bothered us for days will now bother for may be just a day or less……it means that we forgive more easily and release ourselves from the bondage of anger and resentment. It means our physical bodies will be healthy, our emotional and mental bodies will be more balanced and our spiritual bodies will be constantly exploring our Divine Power and Higher Consciousness………….

Just one last thing, when you embark of this journey……..you will always be supported and guided……….so if there is a restlessness inside you….do not suppress it as an acid reflux…..instead try to ask yourself…”is that my Inner Self stirring inside”?

Bon Voyage fellow explorers 🙂
