God Dwells in me as me

God Dwells in me as me – Eat, Pray, Love (Movie)

“God dwells within you as you yourself, exactly the way you are. God isn’t interested in watching you enact some performance of personality in order to comply with some crackpot notion you have about how a spiritual person looks or behaves. We all seem to get this idea that, in order to be sacred, we have to make some massive, dramatic change of character, that we have to renounce our individuality”

It has been a cause of debate for centuries…..what is the right way to connect to God….I for one is quite happy with the turn of events for the past decade or so where more and more the shackles are being released and the “My way or Highway” way kind of belief systems are being questioned…!!! Having said this, I am not insinuating that the traditional methods of connecting to God or connecting to the Higher Consciousness does not work…..all I am saying is, that truly isn’t the a way etched in stone. With the gradual reduction of the denseness in Earth energies, so many people are experiencing more and more events that cannot be categorised under absolutes. Each journey of finding our true inner self is unique, the bends…..the highs and the lows………..the joys and sadness………is all UNIQUE 🙂 I believe that is the reason why the world over people say that children are the closest to God because they just “are” so filled with their own light and they believe what their hearts tell them.

There are still certain reference points which people refer to from time to time to understand events or certain occurrences in their lives; while it is excellent that today, the tolerance for the “dynamic / supernatural” has indeed  gotten a fair bit of recognition and we have a lot of reference material which is available to us through the world wide web, it can also cause a bit of confusion. It is imperative that we understand that the Age of Aquarius is about going within and finding the answers and as it is our individual journeys there is not a set path. The beauty of this time is that it inspires us to see and believe in oneness and the fact that we all are actually connected to the Source as we came from the same Source. An Apple tree can naturally produce only Apples 🙂 We are all part of the same Energy source. All that we are and that we see is nothing but energy.

 This also implies that even if the manner in which we experience the Divine or find peace of mind is not listed anywhere, it is OK….infact it is better than that…it is your way…your unique way of connecting to your Higher-Self. No one can confirm or deny that theirs is the only path worth following to connect to God. It is of course great to come across teachers when we are ready to learn and the guidance they give us is invaluable however if what we experience is slightly different that what they speak about….you need not despair for you still will find GOD because God dwells within you as YOU 🙂 and also the way you receive messages from the Divine is your unique way…trust in that way and be aware of it because your awareness will lend more energy to it and make that connection even stronger.

Mindful meditation is one such beautiful example; the traditional method of meditation while highly revered is not the only way to raise our vibrations and increase our awareness……….being mindful of each moment while you dance, drive, read or clean the house is equally effective. Silence indeed calms our mind and makes us more aware however some people like me get the most valuable lessons when I am writing or talking to someone whether in a healing session or otherwise…the intuitive guidance simply flows through me. Yes! I admit that even I at one point in time struggled to go the tried and tested route of sitting down…quieting my mind and while I have had success with that too….the amazing feeling of the guidance flowing through me when my mind is completely occupied with something else is quite frankly the most invigorating experience for me. This is just one aspect, I am sure that each one of us experience God in our own unique way and there is nothing wrong in that. All I would like to add to this post is….listen to your heart for your highest guidance comes from within you so pay attention and respect that voice.

If your heart tells you that a stone you found on the road has magical powers; then it does. Belief and Faith is all you need for you to connect to your Higher Consciousness which is the Divine Universal Consciousness.

So if you feel that you connect to GOD while cooking then so be it……..that’s your way and I say it rocks!!!

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

Manna from Heaven

Being tender and open is beautiful. As a woman, I feel continually hushed. Too sensitive. Too mushy. Too wishy-washy. Blah blah blah. Don’t let someone steal your tenderness. Don’t allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart. Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things. Whether it’s a song, a stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep, feel it all – look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love.

~Zooey Deschanel

What beautiful words!! I wonder how simply marvellous our world would be if we only allowed ourselves to Feel….truly….completely……absolutely in the most basic fashion known to man. The beauty of curiosity and honest wonder can only be surpassed by that of the innocence of a child.

The first sip of that hot coffee on a cold evening, the first rain which releases that delicious fragrance of wet earth, the hammering of the heart when you see that “Person”, the joy of walking on the beach during sunsets, the thrill of a roller coaster ride, the warmth of a hug, the tingling of the first kiss, first time you see your baby, the wonder of the first time the baby takes that first step, that pair of jeans that fit you after some serious days of weight-watchers, the sheer joy of being in nature…..walking amongst the healing cluster of green or the riot of colors during the Spring, the complete abandon of skinny dipping in the river, the feeling of flying after one too many drinks or something else, talking nonsense with your best mates with some cold pizza, eating ice cream on the cold night, your first sky dive or bungee jump…..WOW……………….ooooooooooooooo the list can go on and on and on………………….I just jotted down a few somethings to remind us of the little drops of manna we are blessed with.Now everytime you feel that you are amongst the drab and dusty….think again because your miracle is tucked in right next to that what you call drab and dusty…just gotta open your eyes…..and while you are at it……open your mind as well to find the true bits of fantastic just waiting for your recognition.

Truly the Divine is Within us and Around us…. ❤

I see trees of green, red roses too I see them bloom for me and you And I say to myself What wonderful world
I see skies of blue and clouds of white Bright sunny days, dark sacred nights And I think to myself What a wonderful world
The colors of the rainbow are so pretty in the skies Are also on the faces of people walking by I see friends shaking hands saying How do you do? They’re really saying I love you
I see babies cry, I watch them grow They’ll learn much more than I’ll ever know And I think to myself What a wonderful world Yes, I think to myself What a wonderful world
And I say to myself What a wonderful world

Guardian Angel

 

Our Guardian Angels are always with us; they were assigned to each one of us right from our very birth. What is however very important and interesting to know is the fact that we need to be in a positive frame of mind to see their miracles taking place. Today they tell us that we will always have their support and guidance but we need to be in a space of belief so that we can identify their messages for us. When we are surrounded by dense energies, our minds are filled with low vibrational energies fear and doubt based energies hence we cannot identify the God Based Energies of Hope and Miracles. They urge us to start activating our light bodies with the help of meditation or just calming and stilling our minds so that we can hear their voices or pay attention to their messages.

They insist that I tell you, that no matter what state of being you are in, which road you are walking on or what you have done or have been doing, they love you and they will always be there for you. You need to remember that you chose these experiences because you had to assimilate a lesson. The moment you decide to come to a state of happiness, well-being and abundance, they will guide you to it and that will happen once you accept what it is that you have learnt. It takes courage to take accountability for your life and every experience that you have however once you do that, you enter into the state of expansion and you are introduced or awakened to your True Power as the Co – Creator of your lives.

With much Love & Blessings

 

 

Hope

One of my favorite poems by Keats. Hope when coupled with Faith always always…..always gives way to Miracles

To Hope

WHEN by my solitary hearth I sit,
And hateful thoughts enwrap my soul in gloom;
When no fair dreams before my “mind’s eye” flit,
And the bare heath of life presents no bloom;
Sweet Hope, ethereal balm upon me shed,
And wave thy silver pinions o’er my head!

Whene’er I wander, at the fall of night,
Where woven boughs shut out the moon’s bright ray,
Should sad Despondency my musings fright,
And frown, to drive fair Cheerfulness away,
Peep with the moonbeams through the leafy roof,
And keep that fiend Despondence far aloof!

Should Disappointment, parent of Despair,
Strive for her son to seize my careless heart;
When, like a cloud, he sits upon the air,
Preparing on his spell-bound prey to dart:
Chase him away, sweet Hope, with visage bright,
And fright him as the morning frightens night!

Whene’er the fate of those I hold most dear
Tells to my fearful breast a tale of sorrow,
O bright-eyed Hope, my morbidfancy cheer;
Let me awhile thy sweetest comforts borrow:
Thy heaven-born radiance around me shed,
And wave thy silver pinions o’er my head!

Should e’er unhappy love my bosom pain,
From cruel parents, or relentless fair;
O let me think it is not quite in vain
To sigh out sonnets to the midnight air!
Sweet Hope, ethereal balm upon me shed,
And wave thy silver pinions o’er my head!

In the long vista of the years to roll,
Let me not see our country’s honour fade:
O let me see our land retain her soul,
Her pride, her freedom; and not freedom’s shade.
From thy bright eyes unusual brightness shed—
Beneath thy pinions canopy my head!

Let me not see the patriot’s high bequest,
Great Liberty! how great in plain attire!
With the base purple of a court oppress’d,
Bowing her head, and ready to expire:
But let me see thee stoop from heaven on wings
That fill the skies with silver glitterings!

And as, in sparkling majesty, a star
Gilds the bright summit of some gloomy cloud;
Brightening the half veil’d face of heaven afar:
So, when dark thoughts my boding spirit shroud,
Sweet Hope, celestial influence round me shed,
Waving thy silver pinions o’er my head!

John Keats

 

Happy Women’s Day

I thought about writing something nice, something chirpy and inspiring as an ode to women this women’s day….then I thought about this famous quote by Audrey Hepburn and the simple beauty of it mesmerised me yet again. It is so heartfelt and expressed with such genuine conviction that it touches that deepest part of me and stirs the chords…….it is musical to my ears. What better way to wish the world a Happy Women’s Day than by doing so with this classy quote by a woman who is held in high regard by the world for her beauty, charisma, a fearless mind and a heart that believed in Miracles.

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”

Communication with the Angels

Communication with the Angels is one of the most beautiful things to experience. Our Spirit Guides,  Ascended Masters, Guardian Angels and other Divine beings always communicate with us however usually we are too preoccupied to listen to them, the incessant noises around us and within us does not permit this communication. Also lower light energies like fear does not allow the higher energy communication to be heard by us. Let’s take a moment here to remember that we are Energy hence we constantly emit frequencies and whichever frequency we are in, we automatically attract events, people, situations and truths from that frequency. While on this, I would also like to stress on the fact that we are constantly creating with our thoughts, every thought that we have creates a reality and the Universe expands to allow that reality to become a part of this Universe.

For us to be able to connect to our Angels or any other Divine Entity, it is important to improve our own frequency first and release fear based energies of doubt, anger etc. Our Angels are always around us and they constantly strive to make our lives more beautiful, help us on our journey of expansion and guide us on our paths. The more we communicate with them, the clearer the communication becomes. They always bring to us the Divine Light and Guidance.

It is important to know that while the Angels are communicating with us, if our present energies are low, then that divine communication which has a higher frequency hence is a much lighter form of energy will not be able to push past our dense energy. We all are born with the Divine Within, with Unique talents and gifts of Intuition, all we have to do is bring in more balance in our lives and connect to the Divine within. Once we do that we will come to realize our true potential as creators.

The year 2012 has marvelous energies, energies of expansion. This year brings to us the unique opportunity to move much quicker in our Soul – Expansion journeys; Angels and other Divine Beings are there even more so in assisting with this journey. We need not worry as the Universe will only help us resolve what we are ready to resolve and the Angels are guiding us in their loving and nurturing manner as always.

The inner peace is so addictive once we find it…… we would not want to be without it ever again…………..yes we will falter and react and judge people as we are in our Human forms but it will not become a baggage for us for we will be more in balance hence will have the power to rid ourselves of all that does not serve us, all that is too dense for us to help us on our journeys.

I wish you all a very happy journey to know your God Selves………..it’s a magnificent journey…yes like any journey, it has its twists and turns, highs and lows but oh! the delights of exploring your inner power supersedes everything.

Happy Learning, Happy Growing and don’t forget Angels Always Watch Over Us……you need only to believe.

Love and Light

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!!!
