It’s Time…

Wearing a golden yellow dress today has got me feeling uplifted and in tune with myself on a different level. It’s the little things. It’s amazing the power and impact that colour has on your health and wellbeing. Have you ever thought about that? I feel divine!

This brings me to write about today’s musings which is all about our energy.

Energy is really simple. We complicate what it is, by giving it labels, by trying to define it and by categorising it as something that is perceived to be almost somewhat tangible. The truth is, energy is simply experienced, felt and shared. 

Have you ever walked into a room and felt that something was not right in that space? Have you ever met someone for the first time and they made you feel like you have known them forever? Have you ever leaped out of bed knowing in your heart that it is going to be an amazing day? Have you ever felt that the time is right for you to start or learn something new and unknown to you? I believe that you always know the truth by the way it feels. Always!

Your energy is truly contagious. The energy in every single being (whether it is animate or inanimate) is truly contagious. 

This is why it is so important to stay connected to yourself. It is important to stay connected because this helps keep you in check and helps you vibrate at a higher level of frequency, attracting more of what you actually want in your life. Who can deny you of all the joy that is waiting to present itself to you? 

Energy flows where your attention goes they say. So… it’s time to…

Stretch your thinking

Broaden your horizons

Expand your mind

Open your heart

Free your spirit

Raise your vibration

Amplify your energy

Your energy defines you. It all starts with you. It all ends with you. It is omnipresent. It is omnipotent. It is omniscient. Just like the universe! 

How blessed are you?

Stay blessed.

Our Love

I like to keep things simple at the best and worst of times. It is the little things that really matter the most. I’ve learned that life has its own plans, timing and way of ‘happening’. Sometimes this perspective forces me to take the backseat and allow things to happen in its own time and place and in the universe’s terms, not mine.

There is only so much we can control in life. Sometimes we have to let go and let love take over. And it is true that it is hard to fully let go. We love having things and situations to happen in our own way and time. We expect so much out of life and people and situations. Expectations can also drive us mad. Expectations can be harmful to our health and stress levels.

So it’s time to stop. It’s time to breathe. It’s time to let go. It’s time to let love.

Love yourself most importantly. Love the people you treasure the most in your life. Love your job(s) and passions. Love your dreams and work on them, one step at a time even. Love the uncertainty of life and what blessings it may gift to you. Love your solitude and the wisdom that it brings.    

Our love can change the world. We are all just walking each other home.

Stay blessed.

Guided by a Beating Heart

We are all human. We make mistakes. We beat ourselves up. We live and learn. We sometimes fail. We often fall. We have fears. We experience sadness. We lack motivation. We think we are lost. We break promises. We are not perfect. Not now, not ever. We will never be perfect. Perfection doesn’t exist.

What keeps us connected to ourselves is our hearts. Our feelings. Our capacity to feel is infinite. We know the truth by the way it feels. Whatever that ‘it’ maybe.

Some days are rough. We feel disconnected. We experience the rawness. We are wounded. We can see the scars and the sight ain’t that pretty. We question everything. We fear the unknown. These days are difficult. Not only challenging, but also uncertain. So how do we feel connected again?

Well, let’s start by taking a moment. A moment to feel present. A moment to see where we are. A moment to check in on how we are. A moment to observe what is happening around us. A moment to focus on our breath. We are guided by our beating hearts. Because in every heartbeat, in every moment, life changes and evolves. This realisation is powerful. This realisation dictates how we move forward. This realisation is the truth. This brings us back to the present. It brings us back to ourselves. It brings us back to our power.

The simplicity of our existence is something that we don’t ponder about often enough. Everything is simple. Truly simple. However, we are so carried away with what is happening in our lives and wanting to control circumstances that we forget to stay connected with simplicity and as a result life gets complicated.

We don’t know where the journey is going to go or where this journey will end. What we do know is that there is light. There is possibility. There is change. There is the next moment. The next heartbeat. And with that life continues. We are constantly guided by our beating hearts. And grace. Keep soldiering forward. One heartbeat at a time. Let’s walk each other home.

Stay blessed.

The ‘C’ Word

Relax. It’s not what you’re thinking. Read on to feed your own curiosity.

When I was younger I wanted to be older and be an expert at ‘adulting’. And now that I’m older and somewhat wiser (I hope?), I sometimes miss the good old days, the days when nothing really mattered and my heart roamed free of responsibilities and the uncertainty of life.

What I know now is that time flies. It seriously feels like it moves faster than the speed of light.

Looking back in time and reflecting on both the good times and the bad times, the highs and lows, the peaks and troughs, I now realise that I’ve wasted so much time.

I’ve wasted so much time not being fully present in the moments that mattered. I’ve wasted so much time not loving enough. I’ve wasted so much time saying no to opportunities due to my own fears and lack of belief. I’ve wasted so much time questioning rather than accepting and understanding. I’ve wasted so much time feeling like I’m not enough or inadequate. I’ve wasted so much time not being open to endless possibilities and harnessing my power to create. I’ve wasted so much time. And now I can’t get it all back. That’s the sad reality.

I’m not quite sure whether this blog post is going to go anywhere, but I’ll keep writing, trust the process and see what presents itself.

Sometimes we want to see and focus too much on the ‘ending’, the results or the fruits of our labour rather than realigning ourselves with the present moment and the journey itself. It sounds cliched and I write about ‘the now’ frequently but no matter how many times we are reminded of this, we still constantly forget. It’s so easy to get caught up on the results and outcomes, and the truth is the future is not easy to quantify. This is my learning for today. The decisions we make based on the assumptions, beliefs and stories we tell ourselves about our past, present and future dictate what we do on a daily basis, and from moment to moment. The power to choose and live consciously is also heavily influenced by what most people refer to as our ‘self-talk’. And let’s be honest. Our self-talk is not always positive or nurturing is it?

When I write, I always write short snippets of content. I rarely ever write long posts, and to be honest it is simply because I don’t have a long attention span and I find that I digest information more easily when it is fed to me in small doses. And I know this might sound selfish, but I’m not writing this for you or the blogging community. I only write for myself. Everything we do no matter how selfless, compassionate or service-related it is, we do for the benefit of ourselves. Don’t you think that’s true? We do these things because it makes us feel good. And with that in mind, we evolve.

Anyhow, I digress. Going back to speaking of waste. Yes, I’ve wasted a considerable amount of time in my past. So what’s next? What now? Well, given that there’s no going back, and only moving forward and upwards, I am making a commitment. Yikesss! The ‘C’ word gives me the spooks and bouts of anxiety. But I truly am feeling these words so I will continue to write.

I commit to living in the moment. I commit to newness. I commit to learning. I commit to love. I commit to bravery. I commit to myself. I commit to commitment. And the discipline that comes with it!

I think that’s the end. I believe that’s all I have to say. My vessel is empty (for now). My words are complete.

Stay blessed.

From Doing to Being

Sometimes it’s important to stop doing and just be. Enjoy ‘being’. It’s a verb. It’s about being present. And aligned. To what’s at the core of your spirit and consciousness.

Life has us running so fast sometimes… from place to place… people to people… from one experience to another. Sometimes we forget to take a break and check in on our alignment. Sometimes we forget to ask ourselves how we are actually doing.

This holiday season I had the privilege of spending time with loved ones. And especially with myself. I got to practice the art of being. To just sit quietly. And to enjoy the solitude that is found in being alone. Not lonely. But alone.

Silence teaches us so much. When we are being, we learn so much about ourselves, we find clarity in our experiences and wisdom in the lessons that we absorb through time and space. I also find that when I invest time in being, a lot of things fall into place effortlessly. I can’t explain why and how this works in words, but they just do. Our point of creation is at its peak when we are in a state of being. It’s critical that we have the right intentions, projections and dreams to fulfil because chances are they will. All in divine timing. And for our highest good. I trust this. I believe this. I know this. I just need to remember this!

Will you make time to stop and just be? Enjoy being.

Stay blessed.

New Beginnings. Welcoming 2019!

A season of newness. A reason to start living consciously, again.

Adventures are the best way to learn and create new memories. Here’s to many more new adventures in 2019 and an abundance of love, light, learning and happiness to boot. Wear courage and bravery, carry strength and perseverance, breathe in new life and restore love in empty places, spaces and with the people you care about the most. Hold your priceless treasures close to your heart, for it is moments and memories that will always be truly yours to keep, and everything else is temporary.

2018 taught me so much. It taught me about my own faith and beliefs, it taught me about pain and hurt, it taught me about people and their intentions, it taught me about being brave and most of all it continued to strengthen my relationship with love. I am forever grateful for all the lessons. And I am humbled by all that life has to offer, as life itself is my greatest teacher.

When I write, I feel aligned with the universe. I sometimes lose my sense of self and my fingers just keep typing away. That’s when I feel most in tune with myself and the source. This is why I write. This is why I’ll continue to share what I learn. Because it keeps me connected. It makes me feel alive. It’s all about my alignment.

What is it that keeps you aligned? Will you do more of whatever that is in 2019? Remember to put yourself first. Instead of making just New Years resolutions that may be temporary, why not think about what’s most important to you. And prioritise that.

May the divine light fill your souls and may your hearts always be full. That’s my New Year’s wish for you! Here’s a picture of my darling boy, Chai and I – stealing kisses since 2015 and counting. It’s the little things.

Happy new year beautiful people! Stay blessed.

Feeling Good

When you feel good, everything around you aligns in your favour! The magic of feeling good is not spoken or heard of very often. We are constantly running in a trance, participating in this rat race that we call life, from place to place, from one person to another, in an attempt to try and get shit done (excuse the French). We sometimes forget to stop or even slow down and just be present. It’s nice to take a break at least once in our twenty-four hour long day to feel good. To be present. To be in the moment. To be grateful for all the things that have gone right.

So this is your chance beautiful people! If you are reading this post, ask yourself, have you taken a moment out today to just stop… breathe… reflect… and to feel good? The power of this sensation is simply amazing. It aligns you to your own inner source so you can continue to create more of what you want in your life. It also ensures that you focus on the positive rather than the negative and recalibrates your vibration to take actions that will help fulfil your goals and desires, however big or small they may be. Every little win counts.

Enjoy feeling good and have a wonderful week.

Stay blessed.

Your Body

Sometimes it’s time to stop. It is time to just take a break and stop.

Your body knows. Your body knows everything. Your body is a powerful energy field and every single atom of your existence is filled with life-force.

I’ve had the flu for the last three days and being stuck at home and being forced to stop for the first time in a long while has really made me think. It’s made me think about how I take care of myself and my body. We often take our bodies and health for granted. It’s true, our bodies are like temples. They’re sacred and precious entities. When something is not right within you energetically or physically, it’s time to stop, reflect, mend and move forward. Until you devote some time to nurturing yourself, you won’t be able to perform to your full potential.

Sickness is not a sign of weakness. It is normal. It is simply being human. It is only natural. It’s important however for us to stay in tune with ourselves and our personal needs. Your thoughts, energy and emotions affect your health and body’s wisdom in so many ways. Heal the chaos inside you by taking some time out.

Your body loves you. Love it back! What’s your body telling you today? What’s your mind tell you today? Do you need to stop and take a break? Go on, listen to your needs and take care of yourself.

Stay blessed.

Unfolding In This Moment

What is unfolding in this moment for you? Like right now?

We carry so much ‘stuff’ with us to places we visit, people we see and experiences we encounter. We are conditioned to live moments through filters that interpret the meaning of certain situations, stimulus or content. Isn’t it time to break free from all of this and to simply enjoy the now?

What is unfolding for me in this moment as I type is a deep sense of presence and an amplification of my own feelings. My mind is finally quiet. I’ve become quietly absorbed in the solitary exploration of writing. I am moved by it. I feel a heightened sense of physical and sensory awareness. I am anticipating the unfolding of my own narrative. I feel so alive. I am honoured to experience this feeling of utmost peace and exhilaration.

In this precious moment, I give thanks to the Universe for my time here on earth. To my Amma and Appa, who have selflessly given me more than they have ever had for themselves. To my ancestors for sharing their wisdom, lessons, grace and guidance. I am unfolding in this moment. And I am truly grateful.

Stay blessed.
