The Dream

Strange are the ways of the Universe
The Spiritual Woman is born through the Beloved
Inhaling love
Exhaling gratitude.

Years before her re-birth
She is given a vision
A dream vivid she never dreamed of.

The beloved is in pain
In labor
She is the witness beside him
He gives birth to a bouncing baby
A golden being radiating love
The dream ends.

Two years later
She is re-born
Through the beloved
A radiant being of  light
Inhaling love
Exhaling gratitude
A Warrior Goddess of
Universal Love.

Strange are the ways of the Universe !!!

The journey to wholeness begins with brokenness.

The journey to wholeness begins with brokenness. So if someone broke your heart, don’t blame him/her. Instead, be thankful that he/she placed you on the path to wholeness. Work on yourself with the understanding that what broke your heart was not love, but attachment to the person. Love is not so poor. It was your ego, that was clinging to what you mistakenly perceived as love. 

You are already whole but in the process of growing up, conditioned by the society, you  forgot your wholeness. In your innocence, you believed the lies that the society told you, that you are weak and powerless, that you are only half and you need another person to complete you. In your innocence, you kept looking for love, for a prince/ss to love you and make you whole. That’s the biggest lie the society has driven into you. Two people begging for love from each other without love for self, are heading for disappointment and disillusionment. There is no way the other can complete you, because both are broken inside. Two broken souls  only damage each other.

So before you look for love again, work on yourself, love yourself and heal yourself. Reclaim your power back. Instead of begging for love, become love. Love empowers and makes you whole ( while attachment sucks the life out of you !! ). 

Become a giver of unconditional love, without discrimination. Don’t be a victim of worldly love. Be a winner of Divine Love and the right people will gravitate towards you.

Become whole and your wholeness will attract another wholeness towards you. That love will be conscious love built on awareness and mutual respect.

Sensitivity is your Strength !!

There is a general acceptance that “ Sensitivity is both a blessing and a curse ”. Being a highly sensitive soul, I have experienced  these extremes to the maximum. I have gone through excruciating pain that ripped my soul apart and split my heart open, allowing me to embrace the light and heal myself to become a stronger person. I have also experienced Divine Love at its highest pedestal, that made me ‘whole’  and put me on my own unique path of Love and Devotion.

If not for my sensitivity and vulnerability, I would not have become the person I am today. Therefore, with sincere gratitude to the Universe for all the experiences I had gone through this journey of life, let me rephrase the above quote.

“ Sensitivity and vulnerability are your most treasured possessions. Make them your strength and they will become blessings from the heaven"

The Journey continues ...

Today marks the Fifth Anniversary of the day I received the divine call, to embark on a spiritual journey to the unknown. I feel so happy, I had the courage  and the vulnerability to accept the call and surrender myself to the existence, that sent me through the  kiln of love to forge me into the person I am today.

Over a span of five years, I witnessed my 'old self' falling away and the gradual emergence of a new being. I am thankful to all the divine souls who entered my life to lift me up , to inspire me and guide me to discover my own unique path of love & devotion. Through the ups and downs of a spiritual journey of five years, I learned an important lesson. To the one who feels gratitude from his/her heart and soul, life becomes an amazing journey.....

Thank you beloved souls for being in my life !!

How I came out of Depression

I write because it is my inner calling to share, whatever I had learned through experience on my journey inward, to heal myself and become the best version of myself. Even though each individual journey is unique, I hope my experiences would help  in some way, at least a few who are going through depression, to recover and find their way back to happiness.

I give below the path I followed, the moment I became aware of the depression.

1) Intention
You must have a genuine desire to heal yourself. Instead of wallowing in misery and plunging into deeper depression, make a positive affirmation to yourself. “ I want to heal myself as quickly as possible” and send your intention to the Universe; and don’t forget to thank in advance. Say “ Thank you for healing me ! “ Do this several times a day until it is deeply rooted in your subconsciousness.

2) Take Responsibility
It is natural for the human mind to blame others or the circumstances for driving one to depression. However, it is important to realize that NO ONE IS RESPONSIBLE for the state you are in. YOU ALONE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALLOWING YOURSELF TO FALL INTO DEPRESSION AND YOU ALONE CAN COME OUT OF IT.  So take the responsibility and start working your way out of the misery that you yourself had created.

3) Embrace the Pain
I agree, it is the most painful thing but you cannot run away from it. You may postpone it, deny that you have been hurt and try to act strong but eventually, the repressed wounds are going to take the toll by way of manifesting as depression gradually, without you being even aware of it. So be brave and embrace the pain and let yourself feel the pain to the maximum. LET THE HEART BREAK !     I promise your heart can take much more pain than you had ever imagined! Let the heart break, and let the light in, to heal you and make you stronger. Cry as much as you can. Tears are the best healers. You will be amazed how calm and relaxed you would feel after letting out the blocked energies.

04) Meditate
Having cried your heart out now you are in a perfect position to meditate. No, I am not talking about sitting cross-legged with closed eyes. It is a graceful moving meditation developed by OSHO, the Indian Mystic Guru. It’s Kundalini Meditation. The one, that still works best for me.  It helped me to release all the bottled up emotions and made me feel calm and relaxed. For the more energetic ones, the Dynamic Meditation can help. Both Kundalini and Dynamic meditations are usually done in a group but being an introvert, I prefer to practice alone. Make sure that you have one full hour for yourself, undisturbed, and make sure the phone is switched off.
For those who are not familiar with Kundalini meditation here is the link.

05) Practice Self Love
You need to love yourself because no one else is going to love you the way you want to be loved. We have been conditioned to believe that loving one’s self is “selfish”. Having grown up with this mentality, we put others before us and totally forget to love ourselves, which invariably leads one to despair at some point in life. When that happens, there is no other way to come out of it, other than to reverse the whole sequence. “How can you expect others to love you when even you cannot love yourself?” I had to ask myself this question innumerable time to convince myself that self-love is “healthy”. Here are few ways to practice loving yourself.

1.       Accept yourself totally. Look at yourself in the mirror from head to toe and accept yourself as you are, with all your imperfections. Know that you are beautiful in your own unique way! Look into your eyes and take note of the expression. Are they sad, angry or fearful? Your eyes are the mirrors of your soul. Promise yourself to bring love and compassion to your eyes by working on your soul. Start working on inner beauty and the outer body will respond accordingly.
2.       Look at yourself in the mirror as many times as possible. Smile and say “I love you my beautiful soul”. As you continue this practice, you will gradually develop a desire to be beautiful inside out!
3.       Set healthy boundaries. Learn to say “No” when necessary. It is not your duty to please everyone. If it doesn’t agree with your conscience, by all means say “No”.
4.       Love your body. It is the temple of your soul. Your body has served you unconditionally for so many years. Take time to feel thankful to your body. Feel each part of your body lovingly and say “Thank you, I love you”. Your body responds to your touch and will regenerate itself to serve you even better.
5.       Take up Yoga / Sport/ Exercise. Anything to keep you moving and active. I love yoga because it helps me to keep the body and mind together, maintains my flexibility and keeps me in good shape and health. Besides, it is a kind of a physical meditation for me.
6.       Spend time in Nature. Take a walk in the park. Walk barefoot on grass and feel the freshness of the grass moving through your soles and revitalizing the body. Let the Earth absorb your negative energies and replenish you with positive vitality. Lie down on grass or on a bench and gaze at the sky. Talk to the clouds and send your gratitude to the Universe. We are fortunate to be alive on this wonderful planet, aren’t we?
7.       Get yourself immersed in a hobby. Be it reading, writing, painting, music, dancing or anything that brings you joy and keeps your mind focused.

06)  Laugh. Laugh for no reason.
When we laugh, the brain releases dopamine, a neurotransmitter that produces feelings of happiness. Healthy production of dopamine will keep you cheerful throughout the day.  For those who find it difficult to laugh, the Laughing Meditation technique of OSHO will definitely help. You may find it very artificial at the beginning, but do not lose heart. After forcing myself to laugh for four days, I cried on the fifth day because it was so difficult to bring myself to laugh. On the sixth day as I was about to give up, I had a ‘glimpse’ of laughter which lasted only for a few seconds. Nevertheless I was encouraged.  On the tenth day, laughter came out as naturally and I was laughing for no reason and feeling like a child again ! Try this. I promise it will be worth trying !

EVERY morning upon waking, before opening your eyes, stretch like a cat. Stretch every fibre of your body. After three or four minutes, with eyes still closed, begin to laugh. For five minutes just laugh. At first you will be doing it, but soon the sound of your attempt will cause genuine laughter. Lose yourself in laughter. It may take several days before it really happens, for we are so unaccustomed to the phenomenon. But before long it will be spontaneous and will change the whole nature of your day.

For those who have difficulty laughing totally or who feel their laughter is false, Osho has suggested this simple technique. In the morning, early, before you have eaten anything, drink almost a bucketful of water – lukewarm with salt in it. Go on drinking it and do it fast, otherwise you will not be able to drink much. Then just bend down and gargle so the water will flow back. It will be a vomiting of the water – and it will clean your passage. Nothing else is needed. There is a block in the passage so that whenever you want to laugh, that stops it.

In Yoga, this is a necessary procedure to be followed. They call it a ‘necessary purification’. It purifies tremendously, and it gives a very clean passage – all the blocks dissolve. You will enjoy it and you will feel the cleanness all day. The laughter and the tears, and even your speaking, will come from the very deep centre.
Do it for ten days and you will have the best laugh around!

07) Practice Gratitude
Feel grateful for everything you have in your life. There are millions out there who are wishing for what you have been given in life. It is gratitude that brings us happiness. Not the other way.

These are my first hand experiences. If you know of other ways to help someone come out of depression, please share and help to grow the list. Thank you for reading.

Love simply Loves

Dear Broken Heart,
The emotion that you perceived as Love 
was only attachment and expectation.
They go hand in hand with pain and misery.
Love simply loves
No attachment. No expectations.
Only Bliss !!
So laugh at the mistake and Heal Yourself !!!

How to overcome Resentment and find Happiness again !!

Let the “Light of the Universe” flow through me
Cleansing me of all resentment
Fill my being with “Love and Light”
Leave no room for resentment
I forgive All, 
I am a “Free Soul” !!

Resentment is a demon that consumes our happiness and peace of mind. For a long time in my life I lived with resentment, because I could not approve of the behavior of  some people. I lived a miserable life with a heavy heart, unable to find the cause of my unhappiness. Then something happened that changed my entire life. As if by Divine Grace, I crossed the path of someone who later became my Spiritual Guide. My first problem to put forward was how to find happiness. A detailed introspection revealed that the root cause of my unhappiness was resentment, though it appeared quite insignificant to me at that time.

In his own words, I share below, how conscious awareness helped me to overcome resentment and find happiness again.

“ First of all you must understand that all souls on earth are at various levels of “consciousness”. It is in fact various levels of “enlightenment”. You have to understand it like this…. All the souls on earth, learn through their experiences, and integrating these lessons in their respective “soul memories”. You may also call them “soul lessons” that we take with us from one incarnation to another. We must learn to respect the fact that the specific soul we are interacting with, in the context of situation we are discussing here, might not necessarily be as progressed as yours.”

“They are also travelers like us but they might be going through initial stages of their “consciousness” and would be a better soul in their next incarnation. So in this situation, we have to be more responsible because we might be the one selected to impart some positive energies or lessons to such fragile souls for their future progress”

“We have to remember that all souls are “pure” at the time of birth but due to low level of consciousness and distorted societal beliefs, we start behaving in a bad manner! We are all lovable beings, we just have to realize that souls inside everyone are in fact as beautiful as ours, they too deserve to be loved….. they are crying to be healed but their worldly bodies are resisting it due to “Egos”.

It is my calling to share with the world everything that I learned on my spiritual journey of five years. I am still learning and growing to become the best version of myself. I hope these words I received from a “Pure Soul” will help many others too, to overcome resentment and find happiness again !!! Much Love and Light !!!

The Angel

A broken Angel she was
A tattered soul - scattered  in pieces
nowhere to go - nowhere to look
but an empty space staring
nudging her to float.

An Angel passing by - spotted the pieces
Still shimmering, though dying
A voice called him,
“Put them together - She is a beautiful soul”

The Angel set to work 
Night and day tirelessly
forging and carving
A New Being of Love
for the next Dimension.

The Divine Mission done
The Angel said to her
“The force is now awakened
the light is shining bright
your wings are grown
Now fly !!”

She took off to the blue skies
To spread the message of
Love and Gratitude.
