A Day and a whole lot of Life….

The cloudy sky…the wind blowing with careless abandon…wild and free…the wind-chimes swaying in the wind…the soft tinkling notes…a cup of coffee in the balcony…the breeze flowing through the hair…the fragrance of winter in the air…some nostalgia…some dreams…some smiles playing on the lips…some glistening in the eyes…
A whole lot of Life and the small things…always the blessed small things…the little joys…the crazy friendships…the rhythm of chaos…the sudden turns…the slides and the soars….the mistakes…the fun…the loss…the fall…the rise…….A whole Lot of Life…
Grateful for today and forever after

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

The Perennial Debate: Anger v.s. Forgiveness!!!!!!!

Anger is such a limiting and acidic emotion…..everytime we feel anger, it leaves us drained of the vital life force, constantly erodes our peace of mind; manifests as ailments in our body….gives us insomnia.

With every appearance, it reduces our ability to see the truth, causes delusion of control when all it does is spins our emotions out of control.

Anger eats away the person who holds it in their hearts and minds, it is akin to holding a burning piece of coal in our bare palm expecting to throw it at someone else when all the while the hot coal burns the skin off of our hands.

When you allow anger to guide you, it clouds your judgement; it makes everything appear darker, more grim and more hurtful than it needs to be.

 It is addictive and like every addiction it tricks you to believe in the false sense of control which it creates in your mind……………it does not let you go free. It is like keeping your heart tied in a barbed wire…..it only hurts you.

v.s. 

Forgiveness on the other hand is so liberating and therapeutic; every time we allow Forgiveness into our hearts and lives…it washes away the acidic Anger and leaves in its wake….Peace and Freedom…….

When we choose to forgive, it under no circumstance should be equated to condoning the action; it actually means you are able to see the person and the action as two different things and deal with it accordingly without confusing one with the other.

Forgiving means you are no longer going to carry on the consequence of someone else’s action, you are no longer going to allow that event or person’s behavior keep you enslaved.

 Forgiveness allows you the choice to move on……it liberates you. Once you forgive the action, you can then choose to either allow the person a second chance or move on without a second glance however without the baggage.

Forgiveness is like Spring, with a riot of colors and fragrance. It fills you up with creativity, hope and beauty.

When the distinction is available to you, it only is a matter of time before you choose one; just remember your choice can enslave you or set you free……

Happy Choosing:))

Angel message

Today’s message comes from the card deck by Diana Cooper. I have used a 3 card spread for today’s message.

The message is especially a beautiful one.

1st Card : “You are a Star”

The Angels see us as we are, a pure spirit having an earthly experience to learn and grow from. They tell us today that no matter what, they want us to know that they think “we are a star”. They want us to believe that wherever we are and whatever we are doing or have done in the past…..our magnificence is within us….waiting to be recognised by us. Once we truly learn a lesson, we can release the situation which was created to facilitate the learning. We can always ask our Angels to guide us and they will. Once we learn our lesson, we can move forward in Divine Love. Nothing is a punishable act by God……we punish ourselves because of our guilt, fear and anger which attracts more of this…..so to truly move on and change our lives…..we need to forgive ourselves and others. Do not forget, You are a Star……only…..may be you are not aware of your inner shine ……yet 🙂

This card signifies the immediate past and it tells us that incase we have been feeling low and unappreciated, the Angels believe that we are starts and there is infinite brilliance within us so we should start believing in our own brilliance ❤

2nd Card: “Self Worth is a magnetic quality”

I loved this card. It once again points us towards the power of the Law of Attraction. This card signifies that when we value ourselves for who we are and what we have then we will always attract people who will do the same. Self – worth is as essential to us as a healthy heart……..when our arteries gets blocked, it creates a lot of heart problems…likewise when our knowledge of our self-worth is blocked……it creates a lot of emotional (and some physical) problems. When we are in denial of our Self-Worth….everything that we do and everyone who we meet is tainted by this absence thereby creating events or relationships which are harsh and unhealthy for us. We attract people who demean us, use us and most importantly it makes us believe that we actually deserve this. On the contrary, when we are completely aware of our Self-Worth, we attract people and situations who continuosly reaffirms our belief in our brilliance who appreciates us for who we are. Today the Angels want us to know that we are very special and there is unlimited potential hidden within us. If someone is telling us otherwise, then we need to inspect our own belief system of ourself. What do we believe about ourself, do we often accept what does not make us happy and believe that we cannot get anything better than that? Do we believe that our destiny is filled with challenges? Do we believe that we deserve every bit of criticism intended for us? The Angels say that if you do believe in any of these statements then it is vitally important for you to go and stand in front of a mirror and say to yourself, “I LOVE AND APPROVE OF YOU, YOU ARE A MAGINIFICENT CREATION OF GOD” and say this as many times as you need to, allow all the tears to flow if they do………..say it till you start believing that YOU ARE STAR because you TRULY are 🙂 once you start believing this, the Angels promise you that your life will be a testimony of happiness and success.

This card is for your present.

3rd Card: “If you miss a tide, there will be another one waiting for you”

Unline what people have believed for eons, “time and tide wait for none”….Angels want you to know that if you miss a tide, there will be another one waiting for you. Life is filled with opportunities and chances; so do not get worried if you miss out on one chance because there will be many more. Just because you cannot see something, does not mean it doesn’t exist. They want you to know that they appreciate you taking your time before you do decide to listen to them or your inner voice…..they want you to know that it is OK to be scared and unsure and they especially want you to know that Confusion is a wonderful state to be in because when you are confused, it means you are considering options….else you would not be confused. They urge you to believe that there is always a way out, a better tomorrow…….you just need to believe in it. If you have been wondering if it is even worth  it or if it is too late, they want you to know that it is never too late because………………………….. if you miss a tide, THERE WILL BE ANOTHER ONE WAITING FOR YOU.

This is a card for your immediate future.

With much Love and Blessings

Your Angels

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 🙂

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.

Happy Easter

Easter symbolizes new beginnings; allow the beautiful and loving energies of Easter help you transcend your limitations and old patterns…………shed the old beliefs

Merge with the new…………merge with Universal Love and Forgiveness…….allow the beauty of Spring to bring forth the blossoms of Peace, Happiness, Balance, Inner-Silence and Divine Love into your life.

Whatever we ask for with Faith, we receive with Love.

Let us celebrate this beautiful spirit of Easter, allow the Angels of Love to fill you up with this Amazing Grace and Celestial Energy so that you are able to view everything with Love, Be in Love and connect to your True Self.

HAPPY EASTER

An absolute treat for the eyes

 

Oh!!!! When I am feeling a little down and out……all I do is look at some of these absolutely gorgeous pics and my heart fills with that magical feeling called LOVE.

Love, no matter how it is expressed and to whom….has the potential to elevate our senses to a Divine Frequency where all we feel is JOY. When we are in this space filled with Joy, all we attract are more Joyful expriences………..Law of Attraction 🙂
