God in his infinite wisdom, hid hell in the middle of paradise, to keep us on our toes. - By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept - Paulo Coelho. 

Heaven and hell are both right within us, at all times. They are not necessarily some places we will experience only in the after life. 

Heaven can be interpreted as the soul - the higher self - the part of us most connected to, and reflecting the divine - the part that rejoices and flourishes in oneness, love, acceptance, gratitude. 

When we are at peace within ourselves and our lives exactly as everything is, we can experience heaven in every moment. 

Hell can be interpreted as our lower self - the part of us that has forgotten that we are connected to the divine, the part that feeds on fear, worry, hate, anger, guilt, regret. When we choose to hold onto these heavy emotions, we literally go through hell. The challenge is to expand our vision and look beyond the 'hell' and see the 'heaven' that is always there for us to experience. 
It's a choice that we must make, and this choice requires us to be aware and stay on our toes, rather than becoming entrenched in our comfort zones.

What are you choosing to experience in your day to day life? 
Many people believe that if we become satisfied with where we are, there is no room left for growth. 
They use this feeling of never being satisfied to propel them to being better, doing more, achieving more. 
That is one way of looking at it and it does work for many people too. However, I have noticed that this modus operandi leaves us in a constant and ongoing state of dissatisfaction 
and unhappiness with ourselves and our lives, and creates alot of stress and anxiety about always having to do more and get more. This way we are never really satisfied with anything at all. 
I personally do not see satisfaction as a road block, I don't agree that it makes us complacent or stops us from doing more. I feel that only when we are satisfied with something, can we really enjoy and celebrate it, and feel good about having achieved it. I feel that like any job done well, if we are satisfied with it, then we can move on and do more, with more confidence, peace and positivity. 
It's a small shift in perspective, but can make us alot more successful and joyful if we adopt it. 

___________________________________________________


Just for a change, let's try something different. Once we achieve something, let's be grateful for it, be proud of ourselves for making it so far, and use these positive feelings to motivate us to do more. Because intentions shape the outcomes: if you start something because you are dissatisfied with what currently is, then that is what will keep perpetrating in the future as well, you will never be satisfied with anything, no matter how much you do or get. If you start something feeling confident and satisfied with where you are currently, with the objective of being even better by exploring more of your potential, then you will experience more success and more rewards during the journey.

A relationship - whether its marriage, friendship, family, love, even with work colleagues - is like a child that you and the other person have created together. When we have children, they give us a bigger purpose, they compel us to be more responsible about our actions so that we don't end up hurting them, they make us want to be good role models so that they can grow up to be good and balanced people. And above all, what a child needs most is love and encouragement, unconditionally. 

If you start seeing the relationship as a living being that is created by you and another person, you will be able to nurture it by being at your best behavior in front of it; being a good role model; being kind, loving and respectful; by not caring about who's right or wrong; but caring only about what will help the relationship grow and flourish. This brings about an approach that is more gentle, more kind, more cooperative, giving us a sense of unity. 

Try looking at your relationships from this new perspective, and you will automatically be guided by what you can do to nurture them and be proud of them.

Faith (not love, as commonly believed) is the opposite of fear. The more faith we have, the less fear we cultivate. 

Have you noticed that usually when we are going through trying and testing times, we are caught up in fear - but when the event has passed and we look back, we usually say that 'everything happened for the best', or at least 'that;s how it was meant to be'. So if that's the case, then why don't we, during the tough times, have a little more Faith that everything is happening as it is meant to be, allow our selves to look for learning/growing opportunities in it, because as the term suggests, they are 'testing times' attracted by us because they give us the opportunity to test ourselves and our ability to rise above the fear, the blame, the anxiety, and find Faith, knowing that if we find our strengths during these times, things will actually have happened for the best. 

Fear is required to propel us to Faith. But as we understand this, we need not dwell in fear - we have the opportunity to transform it to Faith in advance rather than in retrospect. 

___________________________________________________


The age-old debate of destiny versus free-will continues. 

Many people say that if everything is written by fate anyway, why is there the concept of being judged for our actions? 

Others say that we write our own fate, so we are completely responsible for all that happens in our universe. 

While the former belief can make us feel absolved from all judgement, it can at times, especially challenging times, make us feel like we are victims and punished for some unknown reason. 

The latter helps to empower us, but can at times make us feel overwhelmed with trying to figure out why we manifested 
certain things in our reality, and we keep trying to understand and heal that part of us that is attracting 'bad' things. 

I feel that a balance of the two would be the healthiest way to live our lives. I think life is a combination of destiny and free will.  

Firstly, all events, good or bad, are destined, because it it wasn't 'meant to be', it wouldn't have happened. 

All events, good or bad,  bring with them the opportunity for us to learn, evolve and grow - to find a part of the divine within us that we had forgotten we carry. 

The free-will comes into play when we understand that we have a choice in how we perceive the events and how we choose to feel about ourselves and others during and after the event. And there is ALWAYS a choice. 

So rather than worrying about whether an event was pre-destined by a higher power, or created by us - it would be better 

to be aware of our perception of it, how we define it, and how we let it define us and life. 

We can either allow the event to bring out our strengths or our weaknesses. The choice is ours. 

Disappointment: dis in Latin means none, so 'no appointment' - which really just means that its not the right time yet for what you were hoping for. 

Possibly because the conditions are not perfect yet and the situation is being improved for you.

Possibly because there are still things you need to pick up from the current situation which will help you immensely in the next. 

Possibly because there is another better appointment waiting to be noticed but you were so caught up with waiting for the first one that you didn't see it.

Whatever the reason may be, it helps to remember that there are no coincidences, we are loved by the universe, and all we really need to do is have faith that everything is happening perfectly for our best, at exactly the right time. So being dis-appointed does not mean that we need to be dis-heartened or dis-satisfied. 

 
 
What is the purpose of your life? 
Is it simply to go through each day doing what needs to be done, and starting all over the next day?
Do you sometimes wonder if you're missing the point? Do you feel that maybe you're stuck in the habit of 
looking through a tunnel vision lens at yourself and your life, and missing the bigger picture? 
Do you ask yourself what the difference is between doing and being? Why are we referred to as 
Human beings and not Human doings? Maybe because our main and big purpose lies in who and what
we are being, and not what we are doing?
What are you being while you are doing everything that needs to be done?
Are you being grateful for everything that you are and becoming? 
Are you being humble and helpful and compassionate while you do things through your day?
Are you being one with the creator, believing that everything that you are doing right now is meant to be 
taking you closer to your purpose?



 ___________________________________________

Leading in from last week, when we talked about finding our purpose...

It seems that most of us overestimate and glorify the idea of 'purpose'. 

We think that a 'purpose' has to be something huge and big and impressive to the world, like Mother Teresa or Albert Einstein. We keep looking for that 
larger than life purpose and waiting for it, getting more and more disappointed and frustrated, while ignoring all the other signs and hints that come from the 
universe, guiding us towards our true purpose. 

This true purpose could be something as simple as learning patience, unconditional love, gratitude, forgiveness...it could be being a really good mother, dancer, accountant. No purpose is better or bigger than the other, each has its own importance and value. The idea is for each of us to be the best that we can be to contribute to the larger picture in our own unique manner.

 
__________________________________________________
 
Life offers us an amazing opportunity in every single moment to be and experience 'the best that we can be'. 
At every instant we have a choice to act out of fear (ego) or out of love. 
As many times as possible, remind yourself to act or react in a way that exudes love and respect for yourself and the other person. Even if you can only manage to do this once out of ten times, praise yourself for being open to growth and learning new ways of doing things, so that you can have a choice, where earlier you didn't. 
Very soon, due to the immense peace that comes from being in touch with love and positivity within your self and sharing it with others, you will not need to remind yourself any longer to 
choose this state of being rather than the ego and fear based state. 

__________________________________________________

One of the paths to contentment?

At all moments remind yourself that life is falling together perfectly, even though it may seem as if some things are falling apart.
Trust in the process of the universe.  Know and believe that life is on your side.
You have made your wishes and dreams known to the universe. 
Now all you need to have is faith. Faith that all is right, right now. Faith that all your challenges bring you learnings, and are invited by yourself in order to grow. Faith that in believing this, you find your learning sooner and in an easier manner. 
Faith that noticing and being truly grateful for all the blessings in your life, will bring you more opportunities to be grateful. 

 ___________________________________________

The best thing that you can do for yourself and the world, is to be kind to yourself. 

If you are feeling sad, angry, fearful, alone - you are not being kind to yourself. 

If you're feeling like a victim and blaming others or life for making you feel this way - you are not being kind to yourself. 

If you were being kind to yourself, you would not be thinking the thoughts that make you feel bad. 

Yes it is in your power to change your thoughts, to choose to see a different, more positive perspective of each person and situation, and most importantly of yourself. 

When you become aware of your thoughts, and start to choose more positive ones, you are already on your way to being kind to yourself. 

And once you learn how to treat yourself with more love and respect, it will naturally flow out to others. 

Start the journey today. 

 ____________________________________________

 

Whenever you feel dissatisfied with your life, try looking at it from another person's perspective. 

In someone else's eyes you may be very rich, very healthy, very intelligent, very loved, very blessed. 

Make the choice of noticing, appreciating and celebrating the goodness in your life, and watch it grow exponentially. 

 
___________________________________________________
 

Everything happens in exactly the manner and time that is for your highest good. 

So instead of getting frustrated and fighting too hard to change things, first accept the situation as it is 
and bless it completely, knowing that you have attracted it into your life for a learning that is very 
important to your soul's growth. 

Next, have the faith that once your learning is complete the situation will transform naturally into a better one. 

Finally, imagine the situation transformed, and feel the feelings that you would feel once its transformed, WITHOUT worrying about how it will be done. When we think about the "hows", we are looking at the situation 
with our limited perspective and placing blocks in the path of the universe which knows the best way to resolve things for us. Just focus on the feelings that you will feel when the situation is transformed in a manner that is for your highest good. Imagine that it has happened already and take those feelings of gratitude and relief and peace and amplify them within yourself. Keep yourself anchored in these positive feelings at all times, with faith and belief that as you send out these positive energies and vibrations out into the universe, you are magnetizing the new situation towards you and it is on the way. The more consistent you are in emitting these positive vibrations, the faster the situation will transform. 

And all that time keep actively looking for your learning. Ask yourself 'How am I reacting? Is this producing the results that I want? How else could I react if I were tapping into my highest potential?' 

By changing your reaction, you are learning a new way to approach the situation, and in that lies your learning. 

 
___________________________________________________
 

Without experiencing darkness we fail to truly appreciate light. 

Without experiencing depths we fail to truly appreciate heights. 

We come into this life to learn to appreciate who we truly are. 

This is why we attract many experiences and people through our lives who make us feel exactly the opposite of who we are. 

So if you are experiencing something in your life that creates negative feelings within you - bless that experience and accept it completely, instead of fighting it. Once you have experienced this in totality, 
you will be ready to truly appreciate everything that is exactly the opposite. 

Once you truly experience who you are NOT, only then will you be able to appreciate who you truly are. You are love, you are light, you are peace. 

 
__________________________________________________
 

Why me? What have I done to deserve this? Is this a question you often ask? 

The answer is that it is YOU who attracts all the experiences in your life, on a subconscious level, 
because you know that each experience is vital for your growth and learning. If it feels like you 
constantly keep attracting similar experiences and people into your life, then it means that you are
yet to learn what you need to, and so the patterns keep recurring and sometimes becoming worse than the previous, just so that you would take notice and decide to react or interact with it differently than you did last time. 

Once the learning is complete, the pattern will disappear. Either the situation will evolve or dissolve based on what is for your highest good. 

Ask yourself 'what did I fail to notice the last time? How did I react? How else could I have reacted? How would God react in this situation?' 

Because at the end of it all, we are all here to find God right within us. We are created in the image of God. We have all the qualities of God inherently within us. 

All we need to do is to believe that, access these qualities, and act as if we are God. 

God is love, God is light, God is peace. 

 ____________________________________________

 

Why do we think that we need to 'fight' the ego?

What you resist will persist. Instead of being afraid of it and trying to fight it, we need to realize that the ego is a permanent part of us. 

Like everything else within us, it is made of duality - the good and the bad are both part of the ego. 

So rather than focusing on the 'bad' aspect of the ego - the one that feeds on pain and suffering and creates a victim mentality within us - focus on the good side of the ego - the one that creates positive self esteem, confidence, self respect and self belief. 

If you keep fighting the ego, you will lose out on all of its good qualities too. 

The ego is like a child within you. Every child has the capacity to be good or bad. Every child only wants love and attention. If the child doesn't get love and attention by being good, then it starts being bad, because that's when we direct all our attention to the child, and even though we are upset at it, at least he/she is getting our attention, so the child continues being bad, just to get the attention.

So express love and appreciation to the child when it is being good, so that it does more things that are good, rather than resorting to be being bad to get the attention. 

Express love and appreciation to yourself when you are being good, rather than taking it for granted. 

And when you're being/feeling bad, rather than berating yourself, just observe silently and then tell yourself that there is another way of doing this, let me show you how. Make the most of your ego, rather than hating the negative aspects of it and making them stronger...hone and strengthen the positive aspects of it, by loving and appreciating yourself for everything positive that you do and are. 

 
___________________________________________________
 

Just for a few moments, tear your attention away from what's missing within you and in your life, and notice everything that you are and have. 

Whatever you are at this moment, celebrate yourself. 

Look at all your strengths and your achievements and congratulate yourself for finding them within you. 

Love and accept yourself and your life unconditionally as it is right now. 

These energies of gratitude, humility and peace will naturally magnetize everything that is lacking. 

 
___________________________________________________
 

Everything happens for the best...

We usually say this after the hardship has passed and we are able to see the positive repercussions of it. 

How about truly believing it while we are in the midst of the challenging experience? 

If there is nothing we can do to change the situation, then the best thing to do is to bless it, accept it completely and know with complete faith that it is happening for the best. Believe that there is something immensely beneficial that will come out of it. 

Sometime hardships help us to reach the threshold that is required to get us out of negative patterns once and for all - but that only happens if we respond differently and positively to them - declaring to ourselves and the universe that we are ready to access inner resources that will help us to manifest different and positive experiences. 

When we are going through a hardship, there are two aspects to it - one is the actual situation - and the second is our perspective of it. If we perceive it as bad and the worst thing that has happened to us, it makes us feel helpless and victimized, and makes the situation seem a lot worse than it actually is. 

If we see it as something that is for the best, we change our perspective of it and peace flows into us, and we start looking for things about it that can be potentially positive in the long run, thus reducing the situation to what it actually is, a learning opportunity, a chance given to us by ourselves and the universe to help us grow and evolve. 

 
___________________________________________________
 

Whatever it is that you are looking for from others, give it to yourself first from within, and then it naturally flows in from the outside too. 
If you wish to have the respect, faith, trust, love of others, start feeling it for yourself, and when you truly have unconditional love, respect,trust and faith in yourself, others will start feeling and expressing it too, because you will be sending subtle messages to your environment that 'I am loved...I am respected..I can be trusted..'. 
If you have trouble feeling these emotions for yourself, you will understand the reasons that stop others from having them as well, and this will be the answer to 'why don't I get love/trust/respect from others?'

 
___________________________________________________
 

In every moment, as much as possible, be in the moment.
We miss so many moments because we see them as "fillers" that build up to a bigger, more important moment. 
We make the mistake of not taking each moment individually and experiencing it fully. 
Interact with each moment and each person with a fresh perspective, without letting past experiences and future expectations taint your output. 
Get out of your comfort zone, find new ways of reacting to and interacting with every-day events and people, and see if you can find reactions and responses that work better for you, letting you feel more empowered and more aligned with the flow of life. 
Rather than thinking of things as "mundane, every-day events, things that just have to be done, and its better to just do them the way you've been doing them for ever because some things are just a means to an end, no need to put in more effort into them, they will remain boring and mundane"...
think of them as opportunities to discover more strengths within you, those which guide you to make the most of each moment, using it to discover and share your most grandest potential in every moment of every day.

"It's easy to make a buck. It's a lot tougher to make a difference." ~ Tom Brokaw. 

Do you agree with this idea? Is it really easier to keep doing, day after day, something you're not happy doing, just because you make money out of it? 

Who would you rather be? Someone who is enjoying making a life, or the one merely making a living? 

Who told you that the things you truly enjoy doing wont make you money? 

What made you decide to trust them rather than your own intuition?

Was it the idea of 'that's why its called WORK, its not supposed to be fun'? And did you fall for that? 

Even after seeing and envying those who actually enjoy what they do and thrive financially as well?

If they can do it, so can you. They started, they persevered, they went against the grain, at seemingly the worst of times. 

Yet they believed in and enjoyed what they did so much that they excelled in it, and when that happened, money just flowed in, easily and gracefully, as if drawn by a magnetic force. 

When we are happy with our work, which takes up the majority of our day, then we are emitting vibrations of being in harmony with our environment and feeling fulfilled, and this frequency attracts more experiences that are full of harmony and fulfillment. Needless to say, money follows not far behind. 

So move toward your passion. Express through your daily work and your daily activities what it is that lights up your soul.

 
___________________________________________________
 

You are not your 'story.' Who You Are is so much bigger than that. It's okay to give up your past now.

Most of us have a story about how we got to be the way we are, about what it's like to be 'us,' and about why it is so difficult sometimes to get through life. 

We knowingly and/or unknowingly use this as an excuse to not be the best we can be, allowing the shackles of our story to hold us back. 
All of this stuff has nothing to do with who we are now.

How often does your 'story' influence you when you experience life? 
Are you ready to let go of that now?
What if you could create 'you' the way you want to be, and are ready to be, deserve to be; regardless of your past?

Wouldn't that be great? Well, you can. 

All you have to do is let go of your story.

_____________________________________________ 

Ask yourself: Are my desires actually complaints about what is in my experience right now?

Are you desiring money because you are unhappy with how much you have? Do you say I don't want to be broke any more?

Are you desiring health because you are unhappy with an illness? Do you say I don't want to be sick anymore?

If that's the case, then shift right away to gratitude for all the money that you do have and for everything that is working well in your body. Become completely at peace with what is, and desire in positive terms. Say Im thankful for being healthy I want to enjoy complete health on all levels. Im grateful for all the money I have and I want to enjoy constant abundance of good things in my life. 

If you constantly express your desires out of completeness rather than lack, then everything in your life starts to reflect that completeness. 

 
___________________________________________________
 

How about using the past to inspire the future, rather than to discourage it?

Just because you have made mistakes in the past, just because things have not worked out as well as you wanted them to...there is no reason for wasting the immense power of now filled with guilt, regret, fear and disappointment. Be grateful for what the past has taught you, become aware of how you responded to situations and created less than positive results, and resolve to respond differently from now on. Everything that you have experienced is meant to help with your growth. Allow yourself to recognize the resources you have gathered through your past experiences..these are the tools to craft a more fulfilling today and tomorrow. 

 
___________________________________________________
 

The biggest and most profound peace comes when we take complete responsibility for everything that we experience in our universe. 

Whatever it is that you are going through at this moment, understand that you have invited this into your life as a catalyst for your own personal growth. 

Even if it is something that you are not enjoying, send the situation a lot of love and light and tell yourself that a part of me needs to see me experience this for my own good, so rather than being unhappy, let me accept it whole-heartedly and see what I can learn  through this. 

Its like when we give medicine to a child for his own good, but the child is feeling sick and cranky and hates the taste of the medicine and doesn't understand that it will help him feel better and so he throws a tantrum and doesn't want to have it. But with a lot of love and patience we make sure that the child has the medicine, because we know that anger and frustration will only make the child throw a bigger tantrum. 

Similarly the part of you that needs to experience the hardship - imagine it as a child within you who is unwell and needs a lot of love and light, and the medicine is the learning that comes through the experience - and so you will patiently ensure that the medicine is received so that the child can heal. 

Take responsibility for the child within you and shower a lot of love and patience until the learning is received, the child is healed and the situation is transformed to peace. The sooner you accept the situation for what it is, and the sooner you start looking for the learning, the sooner it will resolve into peace. 

So start manifesting peace today.

Our relationships are like assignments that we create for ourselves, in which people are brought together for mutual growth opportunity. These relationships can be trips to heaven or hell, depending on how we choose to interact with the other person. 

If you are in a relationship with a person who is very different from you, rather than creating a battle ground of judgement and resentment, attempt to find out what are you meant to learn from the other person so that you can be balanced within yourself. People who are very different from us are usually our biggest teachers - if we allow them to be. By putting aside our limiting opinions and opening ourselves to acceptance and unconditional love, we open ourselves to a whole new perspective that gives us a bigger picture of the world around us. 

If you are in a relationship with a person who is very similar to you, rather than creating boredom and stagnation, learn to appreciate the immense peace that similarity and shared values bring, and give each other a chance to experience new things together that will help you both play and grow together. 

Let's aim to transform our relationships from battle grounds to learning grounds and play grounds. 

 
___________________________________________________
 

Whenever you feel bad about something that someone has done to you, rather than blaming that person and thinking of them as being a bad person, remember that people are here just to show you a mirror,reflecting the part within you that wants to feel a certain way. You may think: why would l want to feel worthless or have someone nag at me?? Well, if you take a deep breath and think about it, you will realize that you have a habit of putting yourself down and nagging at yourself, even if you don't say it aloud, you are sending out energy and vibrations that say "I'm unworthy of love, appreciation and respect...I need to be nagged on do things...I'm not good enough".

Everyone else is just responding to these vibrations and helping you become aware of your own relationship with yourself, so that you can see this and start to change your feelings about yourself. Everyone is here to help us to recognize our own deeper beliefs about ourselves, so think of it as a favor that they do for you so that you can see what needs to be fixed within you and become more whole and complete within yourself. Once your relationship with yourself improves, it will transform all other relationships in your life.

No one does anything they do not want to do.
You always have a reason - and usually, a pretty good one - for doing what you are doing and choosing what you are choosing.
Be careful not to convince yourself that you are doing something against your will. Such a thing is impossible.
Therefore, be honest with yourself about why you are choosing to do a particular thing. Then, do it gladly,
knowing that you are always getting to do what you want. The statement "I have no choice" is a lie. You can choose. You simply do not prefer the alternatives available to you, for whatever reason.

So you select the outcome that you most prefer. 

Isn't that power?

"Why do bad things happen to good people?" 

We've all heard or said this at one time or another. 

There are a few things this phrase can teach us. 

Firstly, we need to learn to stop labeling things and people. 

Not everything that seems bad to us at that moment is actually bad when we see the bigger picture. 

Everything does happen for the best, whether we attract it to help us learn an important lesson, or to balance out karmic energies of the universe. 

Secondly, there is no person who is all good or all bad, we are all made of duality, within us there is always good bad, right wrong, love hate etc.

So if you are a person who mostly operates out of the goodness in you, it doesn't mean that you wont encounter hardships once in a while. 

The test at that moment is to see how you react to the hardships, do you still function out of love, gratitude and acceptance, or do you become angry, frustrated and stressed? How aware are you of your reactions in difficult moments and how quickly are you able to revert back to love and light? 

The more you operate out of love and light, the easier it will be for you gather your learnings and balance out karmic energies 
with grace and comfort. Thus making the 'bad' things seem less bad, less often and shorter in duration; and making you more of a 'good' person - one who consciously chooses to react out of love and light, even though anger and hate are easier to succumb to in that moment. 

 
___________________________________________________
 

Love is sometimes shown in the things you DON'T point out, DON'T keep track of, and DON'T make a person feel bad about. 
The greatest kindness is often shown in letting things go. None of us are perfect, but we can all be close-to-perfect by allowing 
those that we love to be imperfect, be themselves, be UNlike ourselves, without making them feel guilty or uncomfortable about it. 

Give those around you the break that you hope they will give you on your own "bad day" or lapse of judgement. 
This attitude will take you away from the intention of 'let's see who's right, stronger, more in control right now' to
'let's make this relationship the best it can be' - which is very different than trying to make it the 'best as compared to other relationships around us', because each relationship is extremely different, and to expect yours to be a certain way, or give you certain things is to instantly put it unreasonable demands on it. 
Treat each relationship that's important to you as a unique being, and make a commitment to work together to make the
relationship the best it can be, without competing with the other person about who is the 'best' amongst you both.

"The quality of one's life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence."~ Vince Lombardi 

Are you committed to excellence in everything you think, and say, and do? 

Yes, it is about thoughts and words too, not just about actions. 

Do your thoughts and words reflect your unceasing desire to be the best that you can be in every single situation you encounter? How about your actions? Do you strive to be your best out of love and pride for yourself, so it is refleted as self motivation, quiet confidence, and strength of character? Or do try to be your best due to fear of not being good enough, or out of the need to get something out of it, like admiration, acceptance, a promotion, the upper hand? 

Think about it...start watching yourself...work on your commitment to excellence, and work on making it come out of love rather than fear. You will feel the difference right away, as your energies move from fear to love, being your best will become fun, fulfilling and a way of life.

How do you feel when you think about your job or your profession? 
If you feel content, excited and fulfilled; then chances are that you are following the vocational path that your soul has chosen for you. When this happens, all you need is to do what you do in the best possible manner, just with the intention of enjoying yourself, without being attached to the outcome; and you get appreciated and rewarded for it naturally. 

If you feel tense, unhappy and stuck when you think about your job or profession; then it is time to allow yourself to experience what your soul desires for you to do and be. Don't pretend you don't know what it is that you are meant to be doing. You can feel it in your gut whenever you think about it or see another person doing it. 

You don't have to quit your day job to pursue your passion, just start indulging in it in your spare time, and the rest will just take care of itself. This will not only help you to be more connected with your chosen vocational path, but it will also make you happier in your day job, as you will feel less stuck and stifled. 
Go ahead - It is now time to make time for the vocation that fulfills your soul.

What's the difference between love and 'in love'?
In love is temporary, love is eternal. 

In love brings about expectations and conditions, love is above all expectations and is unconditional. 

In love creates judgement and grudges, love creates acceptance and forgiveness. 

In love requires physical and verbal expression and validation, love is peaceful and strong even in silence and absence. 

In love is limited to one person and one role, love is all encompassing. 

In love is a product of the ego, love is the very essence of the Universe and the Creator. 

We come into this life to get in touch with this essence and facet of the Creator that we have within us. 

Relationships are meant to help us get in touch with and rediscover this attribute within us - to love unconditionally - 
ourselves and others. Those who succeed in teaching us this are our earthly masters and guides. 

Sometimes this discovery comes through a lot of  pain, but in that moment if we bless the souls who have taught us the ability to love unconditionally and beyond time and space, we are able to discover an amazing peace. 

 ____________________________________________

Our lives are run by two main emotions - desires and fears. 
Desires move our focus to what we need to have in order to be complete - we are always striving to be 'more'. 
Fears force us to look at what we don't want to lose - which makes us paranoid about being 'less'. 
What we don't realize is that we already have within us everything that we need to reach our highest potential. 
And what we have within us can never be lost, no matter how much we ignore it, stifle it, or give away from it. 
And what we have within us most certainly does not need anything from the outside to be 'more'. 
All it needs is for us to focus inwards, discover it, accept it, and nurture it.

___________________________________________________

If you're feeling stuck in some aspect of your life, work, relationship, personal evolution; the first step is to stop feeling like a victim, as if you have no choice. 

You are in the situation because at some level of your being, you chose it to be this way.

We invite each and every experience and relationship into our lives as it provides us with a great learning opportunity. 

If we have not learnt what we are supposed to, that's when pain is created, the internal fight comes up, a part of us telling us that there is more to do so we need to move forward, and another part telling us that our learning from this experience is not complete yet so we need to stay in it. That's why it seems like there is something more powerful than us stopping us from moving out of it. This something more powerful is our intuition
telling us that its best to learn from this current experience rather than inviting another more difficult one to replace it, 
because if we don't learn from one, then we create repetitive and frustrating patterns in our life, all designed to bring the same learning. 

So bless the situation or relationship that you are in, understand that its a growth opportunity, feel more empowered about it, rather than like a victim, and start actively looking for your learning.
Once you learn what you need to, either the situation will evolve or dissolve,but no matter what the outcome is, it will happen with ease and grace. 

 ____________________________________________

One of the laws of the universe: Whatever is meant to be good for us, will come to us easily and effortlessly. 

Whatever is not, will take an amazing amount of effort and will bring with it lots of struggle and hurdles. 

We have been falsely conditioned to believe that life is full of struggles, no pain no gain, that thrill and satisfaction come only after a certain amount of struggle has been experienced. 

These beliefs just feed the ego, and helps us to justify our stubbornness and lack of vision and trust in the universe. 

So look at your life and find the areas that you are struggling in and making super human efforts towards. 

Thank the universe for lovingly, patiently and unceasingly sending you all of these hurdles as signs and messages, telling you that this is not for your highest and best...and let it go. 

Let it go with the complete faith and belief that whatever is for your highest and best will flow to you easily and naturally.

The concept of being grounded brings about very different emotions in people. 

For some being grounded is being stable, sensible and secure. 

For others its literally being 'grounded' like when we tell our kids they're grounded for bad behavior, and this brings about a feeling of being stuck and punished. 

This is why a lot of us are afraid to ground ourselves, because we feel that we will lose our independence and freedom. 

Let's compare ourselves to a tree : when a tree allows its roots to go deep into the earth, the nourishment comes to it easily and naturally. It is fed by the earth, it grows stronger, 

it's filled with abundance, and it can easily fulfill its purpose of sharing this abundance of fruits, shade and shelter with everyone around. And it is the healthy tree that can be moved from one spot to another and continue with its purpose, so it has no fear of being stuck or captive. 

On the other hand if the tree refuses to ground itself, fearful of losing its freedom, then it becomes weak, it's not fulfilling its purpose, and no wants to take it to another spot as it wont serve any purpose. 

So, don't be afraid of grounding yourself into your lives, relationships and work. Whatever your reality is right now, accept it completely, bless it by owning it and being it one with it. You have obviously allowed this reality into your life for a purpose, you may not know what it is right now, but if you allow it to, it will bring you alot of growth and enlightenment and will take you closer to your purpose, which is always to learn/ remember something important about yourself. 

And we are entirely capable of grounding, detaching and then re-grounding ourselves, so there is no need to be afraid of getting stuck and employing the self defense mechanism of being an escapist. 

Being grounded can bring about a lot of peace and an amazing sense of belonging. Try it!

What is prayer? In most cases, our prayers are usually divided into 2 parts, first comes the physical act of religious prayer, 
and second comes the dialogue we have in which we primarily ask for things. 
The first part is one in which we attempt to connect with the Divine by saying verses and doing bodily movements. 
Sometimes we add another layer to this by ensuring that we do this in specific places like mosques, churches and temples, 
or even in very particular places in our homes. It seems as if this is the key or the password that will connect us 
to the Source or get us the Source's attention. 
The second part is mostly to ask for things once we have the attention. 

Now, in these times of increased awareness and evolution, the debates that arise are centered around Oneness and Separation:
1- Do we realize that we are created by the Divine, in the image of the Divine, reflecting different facets of the Divine, so there is Divinity within us by default and we are always inextricably connected with our Source at all times? Vs do we believe that our connection with the Divine is reliant on keys and passwords and gestures?

2- Do we realize that the Divine does not need our prayers to be validated as the Divine? And that it is actually us who need the act of prayer to be reminded of our connection to the Divine, and we gain peace from the experience of feeling connected? Vs do we believe that the Divine is a source of judgement that thinks we are bad if we don't pray, or feels less sure if its own Divinity if it is not prayed to?

3- When we pray FOR something, in that moment do we realize that we asking a Divine part of ourselves to manifest that thing (thoughts create reality theory). In essence we are giving ourselves the permission to be capable and worthy enough to manifest what we want. When we ask for forgiveness, do we realize that if we forgive ourselves we will be liberated? When we ask for abundance do we realize that it is our sense of unworthiness that keeps us from it? When we ask for love or healing do we realize that we are giving ourselves permission to love and heal ourselves? Vs do we pray for things because we feel the Divine actually needs us to spell out what we need? Do we pray for things because it gives us a chance to stop taking responsibility for things that we have attracted into our lives and we need a bigger power to help us change our choices? 

4- Do we understand that the biggest prayer is Gratitude for all that is? Accepting all that we have manifested into our reality, exactly the way it is, as it is there to help us to grow and learn. Do we realize that all of our scriptures tell us that the more grateful we are the more we receive to be grateful for? VS Do we believe that prayer is only meant to be for asking for things that are missing or lacking in our lives, hence sending out huge emotionally charged vibrations of lack, and manifesting more lack.

Have you noticed how anger makes us tremble with rage so easily, and worry paralyses us and fills us with fear so effortlessly? And yet it takes an immense amount of love, gratitude and peace to fill our hearts and move us to tears. Is it because we take the good things in life for granted and we need constant reminders to be grateful and compassionate for even a few moments? Yet it takes the smallest incidents or thoughts to propel us and entrench us into negativity for long periods of time. 

Scientifically speaking, negative energies are heavier and denser, and so it takes a very small amount of these to be noticeable and palpable to us. Our ego is that denser part of us that picks up these energies and amplifies them. Positive energies are lighter and less dense, which is why it takes a longer time and more consistency for these to become palpable. Our lighter body or higher self responds to these and amplifies them. All energy is creative, since everything is made of energy. So whatever energy we produce more of and respond more to, creates our experiences. If we want to create more positive experiences, we need to make a consistent effort to create and respond to the lighter energies of love, compassion, peace and gratitude. Consistency is a great law of the universe. If we endeavor to be consistent with our positive thoughts, feelings and behaviors, we will receive the universe's support in attracting positive experiences. 

Of course we are made of duality, so we will have negative thoughts and feelings too. The idea is to become aware of our thoughts and consistently move away from the negative/heavier ones as quickly as possible, by finding something/someone in our life to be thankful for or compassionate towards. As we keep doing this, we train ourselves to naturally become more positive people who experience more joy/light in their universe with every passing day.

'Love is not to be found in someone else, but in ourselves. We simply awaken it. 

But in order to do that, we need the other person.' - Eleven Minutes by Paulo Coelho. 


If we understand the above, we will become more at peace with our relationships. We need the other person to bring out the awareness within us that through our relationships, we are all here to find Love or God within us. Some people will bring out this awareness by being loving in the way that we want to be loved, which is usually 'unconditionally', and hence we will experience within us the belief that we are worthy of being loved, and we will also learn to love that person back in the same manner. 

Other people will bring out the 'Love awareness' within us by not loving us the way we want to be loved, and hence we will, through our disappointments and frustrations, eventually discover that we don't need others to make us feel worthy of love, and we are completely capable of finding it within us. Once we come face to face with this awareness; either we will know that we are capable of loving this person the way they want to be loved, whether they love us in the same way or not, and they will start to respond to this new 'worthy of being loved' belief within us and start loving us differently. Or, we will let this person go and invite a person into our lives who loves us the way we want to be loved. Finding love within us gives us the courage to follow either of these paths, with ease and grace. 

The secret lies in the present - if you pay attention to the present, you will be able to improve it. 

And if you improve the present, whatever happens afterwards will be better too.

Each day brings us Eternity. The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho

Rather than being distracted by the past (blame, regret, anger), or by the future (worry, fear, anxiety) - bring your awareness into the present moment. Express gratitude for all that is fine right now, for the opportunity that this moment brings you to be more and better than you have been, by choosing to experience the now and respond differently than you have in the past. 

Make every moment an opportunity to learn, to grow, to inspire, to love, to be. 
Harness the power of now to be the best that you can be.

The cup of suffering is not the same size for everyone - Paulo Coelho - The Manual of the Warrior of Light. 

No matter how tempted you are, avoid judging other people for how they respond to what they perceive as pain. 

Avoid comparing yours and others' ability to handle pain and how we respond to it. 

Everyone needs different quantities and types of suffering to reach that level of threshold where the cup overflows and they are compelled to do something to end the pain. It is when that compulsion strikes that they become empowered rather than victims and decide to do something about it. It is that moment which is transformative and important, not how big or small their cup is. Support those who become empowered and help them to create new realities for themselves. Of course not everyone even needs a cup, some are empowered without it too...so whatever category you or your loved ones fall into, remember to avoid judgement...practice patience and support the journey with love and light. 
 
 
  • People will always have expectations from you. 
    They will expect you to be a certain way and do certain things. 
    And you will find yourself trying to please them and cater to their expectations, many a times without even wanting to. This will tire you, and one day your will realize that people are never satisfied no matter what you do. It will make you feel like giving up. 
    It will make you feel like just being yourself and not caring about what others think of you.

    And then you may realize that you don't know who you are and what it feels like to just be yourself, because you have been so busy trying to be what others want you to be. 


    Don't wait for that moment. Find your true self now. 
    Fulfill your own expectations of yourself. Become at peace with yourself. 
    When you do that, you'll notice that everyone else is at peace with you too. 
  • Don't stop working on being the best that you can be. 
    We either stop because it seems that its too hard to reach our highest potential - too much to do, too much to change, to much to be. 
    Or we stop because we feel that we are good enough as we are, call it inertia, laziness, lack of self motivation, or 'if it aint broke, why fix it'?

    If you are amongst the former group, rather than becoming intimidated by the enormity of the final result and becoming frozen with fear - 
    try focusing on one small step at a time, enjoy it, revel in it, own it. When you do this, you will realize that in this case its the journey 
    that is more fulfilling than reaching the destination. 

    If you are amongst the latter group, don't short-change yourself by being complacent.
    Be kind to yourself - allow yourself to discover the joy of experiencing your most empowered vision. 
  •  Being evolved is not about living without negative experiences in your life - its about how many experiences you can stop labeling as negative. 
    The more you view each experience as a learning opportunity, the more easily and quickly you disarm its negativity and access its inherent positivity.
    Because every single experience that you attract in your life is there to help you grow, and you will find it quite difficult to grow if you're wasting time viewing the experience as painful and burdensome. Allow your perspective to change, so that you can find the goodness in each experience that you have attracted, and grow with ease and grace.
  •  How much good can you accept?

    Good is flowing to you every day. 

    How much of it you experience depends on how much of it you can accept.

    And how much of it you can accept depends upon how 'worthy' you believe that you are.

    Neale Donald Walsh
  • Many of us are fearful of change. 
    Our first reaction to change is usually that of distrust & discomfort. 
    But the fact remains that change is the only constant in life, it is what brings about evolution. 
    So how about 'if you can't beat em, join em'?
    How about welcoming every change with the faith that it is for your best and highest good?
    How about seeing change as an opportunity to grow and evolve?
  • Which thoughts and feelings are you choosing today?

    You have the complete power at every moment to choose the thoughts and feelings 
    that declare to the universe that you are kind and good to yourself, that you deserve 
    kindness and goodness in your life from within and outside of you. 

    Or you can choose to experience the ones that expose to the universe how much 
    you constantly punish yourself through anger, frustration, hurt and pain - and how 
    open you are to all of that punishment from the outside. 

    You know there's a choice right?
  •  Moaning and groaning about things changes nothing, and never does anyone any good.

    If you don't want to do anything to change it, stop complaining about it.

    If you can't do anything to change it no matter how much you want to, then accept it for now

    and simply resolve to create a different tomorrow -- but don't let today be ruined while you are waiting.

    Neale Donald Walsch
  •  Whether you are in a relationship or looking for one - 
    if you are expecting or waiting for someone to 'complete' you, 
    you may have to wait forever. 

    2 halves do not make a whole when it comes to relationships, 
    because both partners enter the relationship looking for things 
    they need from the other, to fill their own voids and incompleteness,
    thus creating more lack, more disappointment, more unmet expectations. 
    And so the circle that forms with the 2 halves coming together - the relationship - 
    does not grow, it just cannibalizes itself, growing weaker from within, 
    collapsing due to the pressure. Best case scenario - the relationship stagnates 
    and does not grow over time.

    On the other hand, if you look within yourself to find completion, 
    when you love and accept yourself unconditionally, when you are at peace 
    and secure within yourself, you have the capability of attracting a partner who 
    is also whole and complete. And together you come together as 2 whole circles, 
    creating a much bigger and stronger one. 
    Together you have the potential of creating a relationship that is fulfilling and 
    allows both partners the space to evolve and grow to their highest potentials. 
  •  Why have we become so reliant on using negative beliefs to lead us to positive experiences?
    We use fear of losing our job to motivate us to wake up in the morning to go to work. 
    We use dissatisfaction with what we have to motivate us to get more, better, bigger things in our lives. 
    We use beliefs like 'life is hard, no pain no gain, we have to struggle to grow' to motivate us take the 
    long, hard, uphill road to get where we want. 

    Have we become so used to negative reinforcements through our parents, schools, communities 
    that even after we grow up, we just don't know better? There are so many other teachings that we 
    leave behind, grow out of, add our own perspective to...

    So why have we still not realized that using positive beliefs will lead us to positive experiences more easily 
    and also keep us in the positive space more consistently? Imagine going on a journey and from the start till the end, 
    you have a terrible trip, everything goes wrong and you reach your destination drained, bruised and afraid. 
    How will you feel when you reach the destination? Chances are that you wont have any energy to enjoy it, 
    you will need time to recuperate, and the destination will seem not as good as you were expecting it to be - anti climax. 
    Or you may feel jubilant that you have reached and the destination was totally worth the struggle, but in the long run 
    you will definitely think twice about making a journey again - getting stuck. 
    Now imagine that the trip went really well, you enjoyed each step pf the journey, and reached the destination energized, 
    positive and content, not only to reach the destination but to have have had a great journey.
    Chances are that you will really enjoy the stay, and also be raring to go on the next trip - win win situation. 

    So how about using gratitude for your job and loving what you do be the motivator to get you out of bed each morning?
    How about being satisfied with and enjoying what you are and have be the motivator to get you more of the good stuff - 
    if I'm so happy now, imagine how much happier i will be when I get more!
    How about enjoying every step and moment of your life, feeling grateful, peaceful and blessed to be on this journey?
  •  When you have made a mistake and hurt someone whom you value, become very very humble. 
    Acknowledging and accepting your mistake to yourself and to the other person is the first step towards forgiveness. 
    The second step is to allow the person their own time to forgive you, don't force them to forgive just because you have accepted your fault; some people take longer to cool down than others, respect this fact and give them the space and time to heal. 
    The third step is consistency, stick to your apology, don't keep changing your tactic because they have not responded positively right away, don't resort to emotional blackmail to make them forgive you, because that forgiveness doesn't come from the heart. 
    The fourth and most important step is, when the forgiveness does come, value it - do your utmost best to not take it and the person forgiving you for granted, don't forget the learning that you gained out of the experience.
  •  In every experience that you choose to bring into your life, and that means all experiences - are you being the best that you can be?
    First, have the courage to acknowledge that all experiences are chosen by you, in mutual agreement with God/ the universe/ whatever it is that you refer to as the source. Nothing is thrust upon you unilaterally against your will. You choose some experiences as catalysts to help you grow and learn something important about yourself, and get introduced to your strengths; and you choose others as rewards, 
    and rest and recharge periods. 
    Once you have acknowledged that - consider all aspects of your life - especially the ones that may not be up to your expectations - your job, your relationships, with others and with yourself, your health, your finances....ask yourself if you're being the best that you can be in each situation? Are you complaining, playing the victim, getting angry and frustrated, trying to end it and run from it? 
    Yes? Is it helping to change the situation? If not, its probably a good idea to employ a new tactic now. 
    Why not practice making the most of each situation and seeing it as a learning, growing experience?
    How about being thankful to it for being in your life to empower you and help you know more about your strengths? 
    How about being present in the moment so that you don't miss even one important second of it? 
    Try this tactic wholeheartedly and consistently with just one of the 'unwanted' situations in your life.. 
    the results will compel you to apply it every situation henceforth. 
  •  How do you feel when you think about your job or your profession? 
    If you feel content, excited and fulfilled; then chances are that you are following 
    the vocational path that your soul has chosen for you. When this happens, 
    all you need is to do what you do in the best possible manner, just with the intention 
    of enjoying yourself, without being attached to the outcome; and you get appreciated 
    and rewarded for it naturally. 

    If you feel tense, unhappy and stuck when you think about your job or profession;
    then it is time to allow yourself to experience what your soul desires for you to do 
    and be. Don't pretend you don't know what it is that you are meant to be doing. 
    You can feel it in your gut whenever you think about it or see another person doing it. 

    You don't have to quit your day job to pursue your passion, just start indulging in it 
    in your spare time, and the rest will just take care of itself. This will not only help you 
    to be more connected with your chosen vocational path, but it will also make you 
    happier in your day job, as you will feel less stuck and stifled. 
    Go ahead - It is now time to make time for the vocation that fulfills your soul. 
  •  Try this for a week: become happy with and grateful about what is good in your your life, rather than what's not.
    Start becoming aware of your thoughts, and as soon as you catch yourself thinking of what is missing or isn't right, guide your thoughts away from that to something is right and perfect. 
    It is that simple and doable - you don't have to try too hard, there are always things and people and situations around you that you can be thankful for, all you need to do is to train yourself to see and find the goodness in your life, rather than automatically picking up the smallest flaws. 

    After the week is over, go ahead and decide which thoughts and feeling you prefer to experience. 
    The ones that make you feel lacking, not good enough and unlucky; or the ones that make you feel blessed, content and at peace.
 
 
 In every moment, as much as possible, be in the moment.
We miss so many moments because we see them as "fillers" that build up to a bigger, more important moment. 
We make the mistake of not taking each moment individually and experiencing it fully. 
Interact with each moment and each person with a fresh perspective, 
without letting past experiences and future expectations taint your output. 
Get out of your comfort zone, find new ways of reacting to and interacting with 
every-day events and people, and see if you can find reactions and responses that work better for you, letting you feel more empowered and more aligned with the flow of life. 
Rather than thinking of things as "mundane, every-day events, things that just have to be done, and its better to just do them the way you've been doing them for ever because some things are just a means to an end, no need to put in more effort into them, they will remain boring and mundane"...
think of them as opportunities to discover more strengths within you, those which guide you to make the most of each moment, using it to discover and share your most grandest potential in every moment of every day.

____________________________________________________



 When someone keeps doing things that hurt you and then keeps asking for forgiveness, what do you do?
Hate them for taking you for granted?
Hate yourself for allowing them to keep hurting you? 
Hate yourself for pretending to forgive them, knowing that deep down you really haven't?
If that's the case, all you are doing is surrounding yourself in energies of hate, anger and frustration. 
If you really truly feel that you have tried your best and feel that you cannot forgive this person any longer...give it one more shot.

This time, do it with the understanding that this person has no power over you other than the power you give them by getting affected by their acts and words. Change your reaction to their usual antics, which are nothing more than their need for attention and power. See them as a child who is throwing a tantrum to get the attention of a parent who doesn't give the child attention when he is being good, so he is willing to be 
'bad' just to get the parent's attention. So change your reactions - ignore the tantrum, give them attention when they are being good, praise them for their positive qualities, appreciate them. Do this whole heartedly for as long as you can. 

If even this does not help, it may be wise to detach yourself from them, whether literally by physically moving away from them, or by creating a safe space between you and them so that you are not available to them on an emotional and mental level.
This is not accepting defeat, this is being kind to yourself, which is your first and foremost responsibility.

____________________________________________________

If you wish to learn and grow, it may be worthwhile to be open to an opinion that is different from your own. 
It doesn't necessarily make you wrong, if someone else's opinion makes more sense. It makes you cognizant of the fact that two opposing truths can exist in the same space. And seeing more than your own perspective helps you expand your vision, mind, and soul.
It helps you realize that answers can come to us in more ways than one. They can come through us and sometimes they can come to us.

____________________________________________________

Allow others to be who they are, exactly as they are, without judging, insulting or trying to change them. 
Remember that you have attracted the people in your life so that you can learn something important about yourself from them. 
So complaining about who they are is only an indication that you are weak and unwilling or not ready yet to learn and grow. 
Start looking for your learning every time you feel angry or frustrated by someone in your life. 
Once you have understood your learning, the person in question will stop bothering you, either by exiting from your universe or by becoming acceptable to you. 
So until the relationship either evolves or dissolves, keep looking for your learning rather than looking for faults in the other person.
____________________________________________________Its OK to not be in control and sure of everything at all times. 
Its OK to experience uncertainty and doubt. Its OK to not know. 
Because only when we go through times of ambiguity, 
we learn how to flow peacefully with the flow of life, 
to make the best of what is, to have faith and trust in God and the universe.
____________________________________________________

One of the biggest moments of freedom comes when you realize that all the appreciation and love that you need is already within you. 
When you stop looking for it on the outside, expecting it from others, demanding it, craving it; that's when it starts growing from within, stronger and more permanent than you had ever expected. That's when you become at peace within yourself.
There is no need to rely on praise, encouragement and rewards by people, communities and religions to validate what you are and what you do. 
Appreciate it if you have it, but don't become reliant and addicted to it, don't make it the reason for you to do things and be a certain way.
____________________________________________________

Sometimes we get so used to being in the dark, that when we come in contact with light, we close our eyes. 

Sometimes we get so comfortable in the tunnel that when we get close to the end, we build more tunnels. 

Its time now to be brave, embrace the light, get out of the comfort zone, let go of the fears, the self-limiting beliefs that have been holding you back in the tunnel. 

Step out there and live your most empowered potential.

Awareness is everything. Not just part of it. Not some aspect of it. Awareness is everything.

Look, therefore, to your awareness, not to your thoughts. Your thoughts about things can betray you -- and often do -- because they can be colored by emotions. Your awareness cannot.

Just observe what is so. Then observe what you think about what is so. 

Then ask yourself, "Why am I thinking that?" And, more important, 

"What would happen if I thought something else?" ~ Neale Donald Walsh
____________________________________________________ 

Do you know the difference between being sensible and being fearful? 
Sensibility reminds you to look both ways before crossing the road. 
Fear compels you to stay frozen on the side walk. 
If you feel stuck right now in your life, you are most probably functioning out of fear. 
Go ahead and cross the road. The coast is clear. The only obstacles are in your mind.
____________________________________________________

 Our lives are run by two main emotions - desires and fears. 
Desires move our focus to what we need to have in order to be complete - we are always striving to be 'more'. 
Fears force us to look at what we don't want to lose - which makes us paranoid about being 'less'. 
What we don't realize is that we already have within us everything that we need to reach our highest potential. 
And what we have within us can never be lost, no matter how much we ignore it, stifle it, or give away from it. 
And what we have within us most certainly does not need anything from the outside to be 'more'. 
All it needs is for us to focus inwards, discover it, accept it, and nurture it.

All my life I believed that there was more to this existence than met the eye. That all was not as black and white as science would have led me to believe. That there were things beyond measurement, beyond observation and beyond scientific belief that were nevertheless real. I searched for tangible evidence of this for many years and all I came across were anecdotes and circus fortune tellers... until I met Zimmy.

Not only has she helped me find many answers but through unexpected physical and emotional healing proved that there is more to life than the limits that science and our own perceptions and emotions seek to impress upon us. 

Thank you Zimmy for helping me reach a higher level of consciousness, for helping me find a greater sense of peace and of course, for helping me live a pain free life :)

6 months ago I found myself in a very bad space being diagnosed as clinically depressed and heading for self destruction. Anti depressants / alcohol were not doing a great deal, and I found just functioning very hard going. Friends, family & myself had no clue as to what was causing all the irritability, anxiety & panic attacks. It felt like I was surrounded by darkness & there was no ray of light in the distance.

It was then, when I came across Dr. Zimmy Khan, a clinical hypnotherapist in Dubai, UAE, at a workshop / seminar. At first, I found it next to impossible to believe anything that ‘hypnotherapy & energy healing’ had to offer. But then I thought, what have I got to lose?

My very first session, changed my life around. It almost felt miraculous. All the discomfort, anxiety, negativity & depression started to fade away. I did not touch anti depressant pills ever again. Over the next sessions I began to feel normal, life confident, positive, overjoyed, optimistic & full of energy. Life got back on track. Family, friends & work colleagues often tell me about changes they see in me now. I now come across as a much calmer & balanced person than what I was before. I am able to control my emotions instead of them controlling me. I sleep better at night and feel blessed & abundant upon waking up. I am now able to focus on my goals & don’t get distracted by surrounding negativity.

Hypnotherapy & Theta Healing have opened my awareness to my personal power to control my life. I have not felt this relaxed in a long time. Zimmy made me aware of what my mind was capable of achieving. Every time I see Zimmy, my life changes in so many ways. I am thankful to Zimmy for helping me with my issues, she has brought me from complete utter emotional, physical, and even spiritual pain to enlightenment. Through hypnosis she has helped me enhance my life and make valuable changes. She is a gifted hypnotherapist & Theta healer and I would recommend her to everyone.

Thank you Zimmy for everything!

My experience is not just about the ‘Epiphany’ that it is possible to achieve everything you desire in life, but also about ‘Empowerment’. I now know how to deal with the obstacles that appear in life, and also understand where they come from.

Zimmy’s sessions have enabled me to answer the biggest questions I had about where my life was heading, and also given me the tools and ability to tackle fears and doubts, should they arise in the future.

I approached Zimmy to work on several aspects of my life – to regain confidence in my personal relationships, to improve my intuition and to become a less competitive, more fulfilled person.

Over the course of several different types of holistic treatments, primarily hypnosis, we worked together to understand the deep roots of my concerns, and also resolved them through positive reinforcements and building a stronger mind.

We also worked on several specific issues that were not present in the beginning, and the results speak for themselves.

Anxiety: As a new driver on the roads, I was easily intimidated by the intense Dubai traffic. I also had 2 accidents within a short space of time and I was physically ill from the stress of these incidents. Zimmy’s energy cleansing helped me to calm my nerves considerably and regain my confidence on the road.

8K Race: I decided to participate in a long distance run for the first time in my life. I had been on a fitness kick for sometime, and I wanted to challenge myself even further. This race was my chance to test just how far I could push myself physically. Through hypnosis and relaxation exercises I was assigned to work on at home, Zimmy taught me how to take control of the mental aspect of the challenge. I came 7th in the race and beat all my previous times, which was a remarkable result!

Digestion: I had been suffering from severe constipation and went to try a colonic cleansing to naturally treat the condition. In between my colon cleansing sessions I revisited Zimmy for some sessions and there was a remarkable shift in my digestive system which also showed up during the colon cleansing treatments. As a more relaxed and happier person, the colon therapist noted that this had a direct impact on the proper functioning of my digestive system.

I can look to Zimmy not just for motivation and guidance, but for honest advice and long-lasting results. I feel that especially in Dubai, but also in the larger world of alternative medicine, it is extremely difficult to find therapists who you can trust and who will also set you off in the right direction, in order to achieve your highest potential.

In Zimmy I have found both. Truly this is something to be grateful for. Thank you Z!



Vimi Joshi, 40yrs, female, Senior Artist - MAC ME and India.
My sessions with Zimmy were life changing. 
After spending years and lots of money on different healing methods, a few sessions with Zimmy were miraculous. 
She is a true genius with incredible healing powers that are personally tailored to help you become the best of who you really are.
 
 
6 years ago, within a matter of 2 hours, I lost all movement in the right side of my body. The morning started out like any other, but by 10AM, my right eyelid was drooping, the right side of my face and mouth had become numb, and my arm and leg had turned into lead. 
I rushed to the hospital emergency, and soon after an MRI was done, I was told by the doctors that I had a 2cm lesion (damage) in my brain, on the spot that controls movement of the right side, which was causing this sudden paralysis. They explained to me that this condition is incurable, and the best we can hope for is to control it, so that I don't develop any more lesions, which would lead to multiple sclerosis. They told me that they will start me off on medications immediately, but in order to build up to the optimum dosage, it will take a few months, as these medications are very strong and need to be  increased gradually. They predicted that I would be able to reach the optimum dosage after 3-4 months and only after that, could I hope to feel some slight movement in the right side of my body, and even after that, it would take at least a couple of years, many hours of physiotherapy, and lots of luck to regain all movement completely. Of course they were kind enough to point out that I shouldn't get my hopes up too high and just wait and see how it goes. 


Well the one thing they were absolutely right about was that the meds were indeed very strong! After 3 days of taking them, I realized that not only was I paralyzed physically, I had also lost all connection to my mind, my ability to think, to stay awake, to focus. I was hallucinating, immensely drowsy and could not hold a thought for more than a fleeting second. This is what finally scared me - all this time the shock had kept me numb and disconnected from what was happening - but when I realized that I was becoming mentally paralyzed as well, that is what really shook me. In a rare lucid moment, I decided that its still early days, and since I will have to take this medication for the rest of my life, it would be better for me to understand how much of this mental paralysis is caused by the lesion and how much is caused by the meds. So I stopped the medication. Within a week the effects of the drugs had worn off and I could think again - what a relief! 


It is from that day that my journey began, the inspiring and empowering  journey that has brought me to where I am today. From that day onwards, without having any prior knowledge of any form of 'energy healing' or any idea about the 'power of the mind', I started communicating with my body. Just like Tom Hanks would talk to that basketball in 'Cast away', I would sit by myself for hours on end and pick up my limp right arm or leg and talk to them. I would remind them about all the good times we'd had, all the moments that I had taken for granted when everything was working perfectly. I sent each and every cell immense gratitude for everything that it had helped me do all my life. I visualized myself doing both great and mundane things in the future with every aspect of my right side working perfectly and with perfect strength. I spent hours being thankful in advance for all of those things that I would do when I was fine again. I sent waves and waves of love and peace to all my cells. Within a couple of weeks, I could feel my face coming back to life, just like the feeling when the dentist's anesthesia starts wearing off. Within a month I was back at work, my leg was getting stronger with every day, my right arm was still in a sling, I was typing and writing with my left hand, yet was completely convinced that it was only temporary. I continued talking to my cells and sending them gratitude every single minute. And within 50 days, I was perfectly back to normal!  


After this life changing experience, I became keenly interested in everything to do with 'Mind over matter', 'the power of thoughts', 'the attitude of gratitude' etc etc. I made it my foremost priority to study all that I could about  these transformative powers that we carry within us and yet keep looking for outside. It is this quest that transformed me from a hardcore corporate, intellectually-driven person into a full time Life Coach, Clinical Hypnotherapist and ThetaHealing Practitioner. This is how I was literally 'Moved' by Gratitude. 
And this is what has motivated me to conduct my Manifestation Through Gratitude Workshops regularly so that I can share the power of gratitude with others. 
 
 
Sadia, 32yrs female, Businesswoman I've been smoking since I was 14 years old. I didn't actually know myself as an adult without a cigarette. I didn't start smoking because of peer pressure, so social smoking has never been the issue for me. Its something I do alone which made it tougher to quit.


Skeptically I met Zimmy, but by the end of the meeting I was convinced that I want to try quitting through hypnosis. The next day I started my hypnotherapy sessions and for the first couple of days, after every session, I did sneakily try to smoke again. But by the 3rd session, I had no desire to even touch a cigarette and have been a non-smoker now for 3 months. I hate to be so stereotypical, but I have to say I feel amazing in every way.



If you are a smoker, enjoy it as much as you can, but when you are ready, definitely go see Zimmy. I can't stop recommending her. As cliched as it sounds, she really has helped me get my life back on track.




Sunny Rahbar, 32yrs Female, Gallerist


I know I didn't want to smoke anymore, I hated waking up and smelling of cigarettes, and having no control over this habit and addiction. I felt that the cigarettes controlled me and I didn't want to be in that place anymore. 

That was the first step towards the most important change I made in my life. I stopped making excuses and decided to take the plunge. I thought that I wouldn't be able to do it, that Hypnotherapy wouldn't work for me. But that was 8 months ago and I haven't touched or even thought about smoking a cigarette since then! 

At first I dodnt think it would last but Zimmy encouraged me through the sessions and gave me the belief that I needed to persevere. It is possible to overcome the habit of smoking and develop healthier habits and its much easier than I imagined. Thanks to Hypnotherapy and to Zimmy, my life has improved in so many ways. 
 
 
Nothing is ever solved, changed, or created by doing nothing or by standing still. 
Movement is the basis of the Universe. We are all energy beings, and energy is creative when it is moving. 
So start moving, don't stand still. Don't wait. Don't sit on the fence, unsure about which side to go towards. 
Put your foot down on one side or the other, swing the opposite leg over and start walking. 
You'll know before you take ten steps if you're going in the right direction. 
If you're not, simply turn back and go to the other side, this time certain that the other direction is correct. 
At least movement helped to clarify that, helped you to grow. 
Not to decide is to decide. Don't make choices by default, when you have the choice of being empowered.

What is the purpose of your life? 
Is it simply to go through each day doing what needs to be done, and starting all over the next day?
Do you sometimes wonder if you're missing the point? Do you feel that maybe you're stuck in the habit of 
looking through a tunnel vision lens at yourself and your life, and missing the bigger picture? 
Do you ask yourself what the difference is between doing and being? Why are we referred to as 
Human beings and not Human doings? Maybe because our main and big purpose lies in who and what
we are being, and not what we are doing?
What are you being while you are doing everything that needs to be done?
Are you being grateful for everything that you are and becoming? 
Are you being humble and helpful and compassionate while you do things through your day?
Are you being one with the creator, believing that everything that you are doing right now is meant to be 
taking you closer to your purpose?


 

_____________________________________________________________

 

 

 

It is nice to let someone who admits an error feel better after doing so...not feel worse.
If someone comes to you with an apology, or even just a small "oops...", think about what you could say to help them feel better about their lapse, rather than telling them that they probably don't even mean it, and all the ways in which they inconvenienced you, or made you look bad, or hurt you.
Why? Because you will hope for the same grace from some one, on a day not too far off in the future ...


 

_____________________________________________________________

 

 

Life offers us an amazing opportunity in every single moment to be and experience 'the best that we can be'. 
At every instant we have a choice to act out of fear (ego) or out of love. 
As many times as possible, remind yourself to act or react in a way that exudes love and respect for yourself and the other person. Even if you can only manage to do this once out of ten times, praise yourself for being open to growth and learning new ways of doing things, so that you can have a choice, where earlier you didn't. 
Very soon, due to the immense peace that comes from being in touch with love and positivity within yourself and sharing it with others, you will not need to remind yourself any longer to 
choose this state of being rather than the ego and fear based state. 


 

_____________________________________________________________

 

 

Whatever you are thinking, whether its something that makes you feel good or bad, just let it flow through you easily.
If it's a good feeling, be grateful for it, enjoy it, and allow it to flow through you gracefully. There is no need to make a big deal out of it, trying to hold onto it, afraid that after good, there must be something not so good on the way. Or thinking that you need to make the most of it, hence focusing your attention on making it better, and by default making a perfectly good moment, not good enough. 

If its a feeling that's not so good, again, let it flow through you, don't fight it, because when you fight something, try to resist it, that thing becomes larger than life, it persists, and takes control of you. Just allow it to flow through you gracefully, 
and you will realize that its just a tiny attempt of the ego to get your attention, and when it doesn't get the usual big reaction, 
it just quietly settles down and fades away. Leaving you free to think thoughts that bring about good feelings :)


 

_____________________________________________________________

 

Why is it so difficult for us to forgive others? Why do we find it so hard to let go?
Sometimes, even years after a certain incident; sometimes, even after they have apologized; 
sometimes, when they have hurt you unknowingly and have no idea that you are struggling to forgive them. 

Why? Because we are usually under the misconception that we will be doing them a favor by forgiving them. 
That in fact, is not the case. When we forgive someone, we actually do ourselves a huge favor because through forgiveness, we release all the negative thoughts, emotions and energies that we are so desperately holding onto in our anger. 
Replaying the moment again and again in our mind, torturing ourselves in so many ways. 
It hurts us more than them, when we dont forgive. 

We find it hard to forgive because we think we are in the more powerful position when we hold back forgiveness. 
Actually we are the weak ones, if that's the kind of power we rely on to give us strength. 

We are also not able to forgive because we take everything so personally. 
Not everything another person does is done with the concious intention of hurting you. 
Sometimes they are just trying to protect themselves and that's the best they way they know how to protect themselves. 
Haven't you heard of the saying 'the best defence is offense'? We need to give allowance to others for their insecurities 
and their imperfections without taking things personally. 

So even if you do it for the most selfish of reasons, go ahead and forgive. 
First, forgive yourself for holding onto the grudge for as long as you did. 
Then, forgive the other person. 
Finally, be proud of yourself. 


_____________________________________________________________

If it seems like you are losing something or someone right now, don't be fooled. 
This is simply a situation designed for you to gain yourself back. Don't fight so hard. Let it go. Release it. If it was not supposed to be removing itself from you now, it would not be doing so. 
It will never return to you in the same exact form, and it is not intended to. If it returns at all, it will be in a higher form, and so will you, to receive it. 
That is the purpose of its leaving. Everything in the universe only improves itself. Sometimes we need to break away from our comfort zones in order to get a fresh perspective and a fresh start. Its called evolution. Trust it. Allow it. Support it. Celebrate it. 



_____________________________________________________________

Whatever it is that you are looking for from others, give it to yourself first from within, and then it naturally flows in from outside of you. 
If you wish to have the respect, faith, trust, love of others, start feeling it for yourself, and when you truly have unconditional love, respect,trust and faith in yourself, others will start feeling and expressing it too, because you will be sending subtle messages to your environment that 'I am loved...I am respected..I can be trusted..'. 
If you have trouble feeling these emotions for yourself, you will understand the reasons that stop others from having them as well, and this will be the answer to 'why don't I get love/trust/respect from others?'


_____________________________________________________________

 

Happiness is the decision we must make. Some people are chronic sufferers, the victims, the 'poor me' group. Others are the bubbly, strong spirited people, no matter what you cant break their spirit. You may look at them and say 'they’re delusional, and this will only end up disillusioning them'. But they will tell you 'even if good luck hit you on the head, you wouldn’t know it because you’re so bogged down with your sob story!'. 
Each of us has a responsibility of how we interpret our experiences. One person can have an experience and say life is pretty good, and another can have that exact same experience and say that wasn’t good enough. 
So the idea is, when you take what you have, affirm it, make the most of it, and are grateful for it, you are expanding the goodness of the condition, expanding the potential of it. When we look at a situation, or our life or ourselves, and say this is not good, its bad, not good enough, what happens is that every bit of good that it could present to us, is then wasted and falls away, because basically we are damning rather than blessing the situation. 

Look at your life, and say this is perfect, thank you. It is either perfect in that it is good and your opportunity is to enjoy it, by being grateful for it. Or it is perfect in that it is a perfect lesson for you, so rather than damning the situation, bless whatever situation you are in, remember that you have brought it towards yourself to learn something, so be thankful for the opportunity to grow and learn and evolve. As soon as you stop fighting it and change your perception of it, the situation improves miraculously.

"It's easy to make a buck. It's a lot tougher to make a difference." ~ Tom Brokaw. 
Do you agree with this idea? Is it really easier to keep doing, day after day, something you're not happy doing,just because you make money out of it? 
Who would you rather be? Someone who is enjoying making a life, or the one merely making a living? 
Who told you that the things you truly enjoy doing will not make you money? 
What made you decide to trust them rather than your own intuition?
Was it the idea of 'that's why its called WORK, its not supposed to be fun'? And did you fall for that? 
Even after seeing and envying those who actually enjoy what they do and thrive financially as well?
If they can do it, so can you. They started, they persevered, they went against the grain, at seemingly the worst of times. 
Yet they believed in and enjoyed what they did so much that they excelled in it, and when that happened, money just flowed in, easily and gracefully, as if drawn by a magnetic force. When we are happy with our work, which takes up the majority of our day, then we are emitting vibrations of being in harmony with our environment and feeling fulfilled, and this frequency attracts more experiences that are full of harmony and fulfillment. Needless to say, money follows not far behind. 
So move toward your passion. Express through your daily work and your daily activities what it is that lights up your soul. 
Do not believe those who say that you cannot or should not do this. Do it anyway. No, really. Do it anyway. 


 

_____________________________________________________________

 

 

Love is sometimes shown in the things you DON'T point out, DON'T keep track of, and DON'T make a person feel bad about. 
The greatest kindness is often shown in letting things go. None of us is perfect, but we can all be close-to-perfect by allowing 
those that we love to be imperfect, be themselves, be UNlike ourselves, without making them feel guilty or uncomfortable about it. 
Give those around you the break that you hope they will give you on your own "bad day" or lapse of judgement. 
This attitude will take you away from the intention of 'let's see who's right, stronger, more in control right now' to 'let's make this relationship the best it can be' - which is very different than trying to make it the 'best as compared to other relationships around us', because each relationship is extremely different, and to expect yours to be a certain way, or give you certain things is to instantly put it unreasonable demands on it. 

Treat each relationship that's important to you as a unique being, and make a commitment to make the relationship the best it can be, without competing with the other person about who is the 'best' amongst you both. 


_____________________________________________________________

 

Progress is not measured through time, it is measured through results. Do not wonder why things are "taking so long." In fact, everything is rolling out exactly as it needs to, using not a minute more than Perfection requires.
During this waiting period, instead of getting frustrated, disheartened and disillusioned; be on the lookout for the learning that needs to be accepted by you, in order to release you from this situation. When we are curious & searching actively for our learning from a 'negative' situation, we put ourselves in a more empowered position, and leave the 
role of the victim behind. 
This in itself makes the situation much more positive for us to experience, and we get through it with more ease and grace, than we would have if we were focusing all our energies on being a victim, blaming others & life, and wondering "what have I done to deserve this?" What you have actually done is attract a learning opportunity to yourself, all you need to do is remind yourself of this very important point. Once you remember this, it is quite easy to open yourself upto 
accepting the learning with gratitude, and move on to more positive experiences. 
So rest easy and be at peace with all situations in your reality. Life is working its magic even as you take your very next breath.

The quality of one's life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence."~ Vince Lombardi 
Are you committed to excellence in everything you think, and say, and do? Yes, it is about thoughts and words too,not just about actions. 
Do your thoughts and words reflect your unceasing desire to be the best that you can be in every single situation you  encounter? How about your actions? Do you strive to be your best out of love and pride for yourself, so it is reflected as self motivation, quiet confidence, and strength of character? Or do try to be your best due to fear of not being good enough, or out of the need to get something out of it, like admiration, acceptance, a promotion, the upper hand? 
Think about it...start watching yourself...work on your commitment to excellence, and work on making it come out of love rather than fear. 
You will feel the difference right away, as your energies move from fear to love, being your best will become fun, fulfilling and a way of life.

There is a solution to every problem. 
Nothing is insolvable. Nothing. Do everything that you 
can to avoid the temptation of thinking that what is
facing you now is insurmountable. That is simply not true.
You cannot see the solution, of course, if you are
convinced it is not there. So you must have great faith
in life. Do you have great faith in life? Now would be a
good time to show it. Smile. Relax. It'll all be okay.

Adversity reveals genius, prosperity conceals it. Horace said that, and he was right. During this time of adversity and financial 'meltdown,' your genius will be revealed--as will that of all humankind. We will find that there is another way to live other than 'dog eat dog,' and another worthy goal other than 'bigger, better, more.'
See this time, then, as a challenge to your ingenuity and an invitation from life to rediscover what is truly important: love, family, friends, and...the journey of the soul.

The mere apprehension of a coming evil has put many into a situation of the utmost danger. F.L. Lucan said that, and it is right. 
There is no faster way to bring about misfortune than to think it is coming. Thought is a powerful force, and it is a creative tool that many people pay little attention to.
What are you worried about today? Why? Rather than worry about it, would it not be a better use of your mental time to visualize a positive outcome? Use your mind in this way today and you will have tapped one of the most extraordinary tools that have placed in your hand for the creation of your tomorrows.


 

_____________________________________________________________

 

 

Change is the natural order of things and not something that you benefit from resisting. We live in a time of enormous upheaval on a global scale, and more and more people are seeing huge changes in their personal lives as well. It is the nature of the world in which we live.
Move with grace in the face of these changes, for every change, especially the one that seems the most difficult,brings you an incredible opportunity for growth. 
Breathe, relax, and face all changes with a smile, and know with confidence things will all work out perfectly.


 

_____________________________________________________________

 

 

It is only This Moment that counts, This Moment that matters. Dwelling on anything else is pointless. Yesterday is gone, if not forgotten, and tomorrow is not yet here, so why waste precious time and mental energy focused on either? 
What is going on right now? That is the question. And what can you do Right Now to make Now better? Make each Now better and the future will take care of itself, while the past will not matter.


 

 

You are not your 'story.' Who You Are is so much bigger than that. It's okay to give up your past now.
Most of us have a story about how we got to be the way we are, about what it's like to be 'us,' and about why it is so difficult sometimes to get through life. 
We knowingly and/or unknowingly use this as an excuse to not be the best we can be, allowing the shackles of our story to hold us back. 
All of this stuff has nothing to do with who we are now. How often does your 'story' influence you when you experience life? Are you ready to let go of that now? What if you could create 'you' the way you want to be, and are ready to be, deserve to be; regardless of your past? Wouldn't that be great? Well, you can. 
All you have to do is let go of your story.


 

 

_____________________________________________________________

 

 

Waiting to see what happens is not a very good way to make decisions. Not to decide is to decide. What are you deciding right now by not deciding? 
What are you choosing by failing to choose? Is this how you want to live your life: by default?
It's time you made a decision. 
Ensure that you make the decision from the platform of love, rather than fear. Love for yourself, for life and others, so that the decision is for your highest good. Not out of a fear-based motivation, as it will only produce results that are painful. 
Go ahead, its time..take a leap of faith. 


 

 

_____________________________________________________________

 

 

No one does anything they do not want to do. 
You always have a reason - and usually, a pretty good one - for doing what you are doing and choosing what you are choosing. 
Be careful not to convince yourself that you are doing something against your will. Such a thing is impossible.
Therefore, be honest with yourself about why you are choosing to do a particular thing. Then, do it gladly, knowing that you are always getting to do what you want. The statement "I have no choice" is a lie. You can choose. You simply do not prefer the alternatives available to you, for whatever reason. So you select the outcome that you most prefer. 
Isn't that power?

"Life is a game of boomerangs. Our thoughts, deeds and words return to us sooner or later with astounding accuracy" - Florence Scovel Shinn. 

So before you think, do, or say anything -- imagine what it would be like to receive what you are sending. Then, go one step further. Decide ahead of time what you would like to receive...and then send it. 
If you want to be loved, be loving to people around you, if you want to be respected, show respect to those around you, not only the ones who are easy to love and respect but even those are quite difficult too. 


Whatever you would like to experience, make that happen in the life of another.. and then...watch the magic.

Why do we wait for new year to make changes in our lives? 
Promise ourselves that this year I will do this or not do that?
What is it about this change in date that impacts us so much? 
Why do we treat it as a complete new beginning, 
thinking that everything from the year before is wiped out and we have been given a fresh start?
Why do we wait to see how the year will turn out for us?
Why do we send wishes to everyone hoping that the year brings them great things? 


Why can we not treat every single day as new years day? 
Why can we not start each day with the desire and intention to have the best day ever and be the best that we can be? 
Why not give it a shot? 


 

_____________________________________________________________

 

Challenges are what we came here for. To learn and grow through them. 

And we never choose a challenge that we cannot overcome.

The purpose of life is to give us a chance to be the grandest and most empowered version of the greatest vision of who we are. 

When challenges arrive, move straight to clarity: 'This is what I came here for. I have asked for and chosen this challenge so that i can discover my most empowered potential.'

Rise to the occasion and to the challenge, knowing without a doubt that you have every resource with which to create the grandest and perfect outcome.

For once, instead of focusing on and fretting about what you can change, need to change, have to change...

How about taking a deep breath and asking yourself : What is perfect right now? What do I need to retain as is? What do have to have as it is right now?...

When you get your answer, focus on those things, people, situations and feelings, and send heartfelt gratitude for them, and allow yourself to be in peace with the here and now.

It is the neglect of timely repair that makes rebuilding necessary - Richard Whately. 

Take a look today at what you need to repair. Who has been hurt by you...or ignored?

Don't get into a lot of guilt around this -- just repair it.

The best gift we can give ourselves is to live life with integrity. 
Be true to yourself, rather doing things and being things in order to make others happy, and to prove a point to yourself and to others. 

If you are doing things because you think they will make others love, admire, respect you, then you will feel burdened, heavy and purposeless, never happy even after achieving what you set out to. You will always find yourself relying on others 
to validate you and make you feel good for doing all that you have done, and if they don't you will feel angry and betrayed. 

When you are being true to yourself, kind to yourself, making sure that you are completely at peace with yourself, doing things that truly make you happy, not waiting for appreciation, support and validation from others, then you feel truly light and aligned with the universe.

Zimmy has a gift. She is a gentle, unassuming, non judgemental healer who is a friend, philosopher and guide. What I love about her sessions is the holistic approach...not only does she help you by tackling your energy blocks, she also backs that up with practical advice.   Just two sessions with her and I felt so energised and positive. This is better than red bull! The stress of modern life tends to hack away at your energy reserves; you accumulate so much stuff that weighs you down and stops you from being the best you can be -- professionally and personally. I plan to go for Zimmy's energy therapy sessions every now and then.

I first went to see Zimmy when I felt as though my life seemed to be stalled. Career-wise I was not going anywhere. I knew I wanted to make changes in my life but something was holding me back. After an initial consultation, we decided on scheduling 4 sessions to work on my issues. By the second session, I had begun to find myself again.
 
I found Zimmy to be extremely patient and sympathetic. She guided me towards discovering blocked emotions and helped me see the root causes of some of my current destructive behavior.   I now know which habits and emotional baggage to shed and which qualities in myself to embrace and celebrate.  I know that I will make all future decisions with these things in mind and I will never trap myself into unhappiness again.
 
I recommend Zimmy’s method of self-exploration and self-healing to anyone who has lost themselves somewhere along this path called Life.

I came to Zimmy with concerns about my strained relationship with my husband. Through the course of the first two sessions, I discovered that the pain I experienced in my back and on either foot from time to time was purely a mental blockage and required healing. I also managed to undergo an enegry exchange exercise and realised that I had to cut off all ties with my ex-boyfriend in order to move on and be happy.

Moreover, I underwent an exercise with Zimmy whereby I am able to have greater control over my temper, and have seen a significant change in my ability to control and rationalise with the child in me. Through the last session, I underwent regression and got in touch with my Higher Self/Guide. This enabled me to seek answers to questions that were long pending, regarding my career, health and relationship with my husband.

Thank you once again Zimmy!

The debate has been on for centuries whether the soul exists or it dosent. Spiritualists believe it does, some scientists believe it does, how ever atheists & other scientists believe it doesent. Unfortunatley I fell in the atheist segment. However being an atheist didnt hamper my openess to experience something new. And thats what happened during my sessions with Zimmy.

A patient ear, is worth a million words of advice, and zimmy has 2 such patient ears. Listening and understanding my issues, problems, apprehensions, fears and cynysicim. And to top of it all not being judgemental, I think this is what made me even more open to trying what zimmy was suggesting.

Our sessions were very calming, my being felt at rest in presence of zimmy's peaceful voice. The calming effect let me explore depths of my mind. Areas which were previously unexplored. In 5 sessoins zimmy managed to close on some very crucial issues in my character. I experienced things which I thought I never could. I experienced a past life, i saw images of some dear ones and some unknowns float through my space, i saw my fallacies stare at me and then being replaced by light. They say the soul is like a light within you. I cant claim it was my soul, as i still dont know if a soul exists. But today I can not deny its exisence either.

Hypnosis and regression, two words I believed in but was skeptical about, only until I walked in through Zimmy Khan's door.
The presence of a soul is something we blindly believe in, but my blind faith actually took a form under Zimmy's guidance. She once said, 'It reaches out to you but only when you’re ready' and I’m grateful for her calming presence in my life at that point. She not only helped me identify my inner demons, but also helped reach out to a higher self. Through her sessions I came a step closer to understanding my biggest shortcoming in this life and maybe many in the past.

It took a while for me to accept, whether what I was experiencing lying on her couch was actually for real, but Zimmy's appeasing and patient steer helped manage my hysteria. She would put my body and mind at such ease that my deepest darkest insecurities, would find a way out between us. She’d know things that I’ve never mentioned and would always relieve me by sharing a similar experience from her life. Bigger then that, was her capability to reach out with an assuring touch when I felt unsteady the most - traveling through, what I believe was worlds between.   Thank you Zimmy for helping me find inner peace.

 When i first started seeing Zimmy i had very low confidence in myself and which made me lack in nearly all areas of my life and would lead to periods of depression and self pity. l had a few sessions with Zimmy and found myself improving  with each one. She dealt with my issues one by one and with time i felt weight lift of my shoulders and realised i was seeing things through a different light without even trying. Its actually hard to explain the feeling but it was as if all the negative and bad energies were eliminated and l was dealing with my thoughts through a much clearer light.
Zimmy taught me about the power of thoughts how it effects emotions,energy and the physical body it all made sense when l put it to practice. With this i realised how strong and powerful the power i had in myself was to make or change what ever i wanted and needed to.The sessions were truly an amazing experience they took me through many feelings i consciously and sub consciously knew i needed to deal with, small or big. I even stopped smoking after the first few sessions which i found bizarre because i had been trying to kick the habit for a while but failed to do so.
Overall it was a very peaceful experience it was forfiling from within and l learnt without inner peace there isn't peace .
Thank you Zimmy xx
 
 
Most of us have a story about how we got to be the way we are, about what it's like to be 'us,' and about why it is so difficult sometimes to get through life.
We knowingly and/or unknowingly use this as an excuse to not be the best we can be, allowing the shackles of our story to hold us back.

How often does your 'story' influence you when you experience life? How many excuses do you make for doing the things you dont want to, or not doing things that you really want to. How many reasons do you have for being a certain way, having certain reactions that you have; even if being this way and having these reactions no longer serve your highest purpose?

Are you ready to let go of these blocks and barriers that you yourself have put into your own path?

It's okay to give up your past now.You are not your 'story', who you are is so much bigger than that. 

You are the one who can learn and grow through past experiences, who can break out of the mould of the past,
and embrace a new reality of yourself and your experiences. You are the one who can create 'you' the way you want to be, are ready to be, and deserve to be NOW; regardless of your past.  

All you have to do is let go of your story.

Love, Light and Peace
Zimmy Khan
