Tiny steps🎁 Big leap♥️

Ever wondered, how we got this big, grew up into being who we are today??
As far as I remember, a moment at a time,a day at a time, a year at a time♥️

N my dreamy studio that is at the center of my life (with my family) started with tiny wishes..

Wishes of being crazy for ‘creating stuff’♥️ be it cards, notes or posters or whatever.. 

N I wanna thank all those tiny wishes that have grown into me dreaming of having my STUDIO 😍

One such tiny wish was this zig zag scissor,now a proud resident of my studio😘😍

This scissor has been on my wish list since I was a kid🎁

My mom used to have one which was only used for fabric! N I loved how a zigzag could be created with super ease..

So one day, back in 2011, after work, I went to Crawford Market, (in South Mumbai) which is the market for kinda everything under the sun..

N this was my first buy! It was ‘expensive’ I remember with respect to how much cash I had in my wallet, n yet I chose to buy it.. n it has served me super well..

All those cards I’ve made, n all the crafty stuff I’ve created so far, I’ve always loved to use a zigzag edge ..

It reminds me of how special I am (just like everyone else) without really doing much..

N I guess this was one of the first family member of my ‘dreamy n unplanned, unintended studio’ ..

Not to forget the hoards of paper I still love to gorge on, n my open heart that is super excited to create every time I’m inspired♥️

This is how my new, ‘recently moved in’ garage studio looks like♥️

A pic of the garage (even before I grabbed it for my studio space)

A dream catcher to keep the ‘I cant’s’ away♥️



Moral of the story: it’s okay to have a tiny wish today. It is okay to have a tiny belief..

Nurturing this one tiny belief can get us grow into a big venture..anytime

Baby steps for an eventual huge leap♥️

Cheers

My list of 10 things ‘rich’ people do every day!!!


I know..the regular lists that I have read so far are different from this one! People believe, reading is one of the activities that keeps them rich ..

I disagree!!! N hence…

This is my list, of what the ‘newer’ generation of ‘rich’ people (read youngsters) do daily:

1. Express gratitude: 

In simple n quick ways, like saying ‘thank you’ or writing a list, or remembering stuff that expresses reason for gratitude ♥️

2. Spend time in nature:

Even if it means, a five minute walk outdoors looking at trees or breathing pure fresh air, or bare feet on grass, or listening to the wind blowing …

Whatever that’s quick n simple, n yet OUTDOOR♥️

3. Spend quality time with family:

This is as good as the topper on this list! Sharing meals together, or doing some kind of a daily/ weekly activity with the family, where everyone is heard, time is shared and hearts are open : a must have!! 

Could be dining, playing, watching a movie, traveling, or even buying groceries ‘together’ ♥️

4. Pursue a hobby with commitment:

The commitment isn’t time based, it is heart based! Which means the person is able to pursue his hobby when the heart desires to do so! 

It could be as simple as singing (even if it means in the shower) or driving or painting or writing or whatever it is that connects you with your heart.. 

this one is a biggie n most essential♥️

5. Compliment others generously n open heartedly:

It changes the world for the person! N who doesn’t like to be genuinely appreciated ??

Recognising something beautiful about people around you, and commending them for it : a biggie on my list ♥️

It sends great vibes across the globe♥️

6. Send out love into the universe:

Every single person on this planet has goofed up in life. So what? 

Expressing love is another way of saying ‘it’s okay! I goofed! N it’s okay :-)’

Sending out love to oneself first, n then to all of those who may need it too, to all existing in this universe ♥️

7. Honour their needs:

It could be as small as drinking water, as simple as exercise 

It could be simply taking a break with a movie or may be by eating chocolate or calling a friend or spending solo time ..

It could also be as big as going on a spontaneous vacation or keeping the cell phone switched off..

Only we know, what is it that we need. And it’s our prime responsibility to take care that those needs are honoured.

8. Have heart to heart conversations with people that matter: 

Just cuz people are rich, doesn’t mean they don’t have time for people that matter. Simple conversations that are guided by curiosity (rather than an agenda) create magic!!

They shift energy for everyone involved in the conversation.

9. Be themselves, be authentic:

Breaking labels is the need of the day! Each one of us brings this unique energy out into this world. And we got to keep it that way.

One of the reasons, I’m making a different list of what rich people do daily, is cuz I don’t agree that in order to be rich, I have to do something different than who I am..n I hate reading!! 

Rich people needn’t be busy! Rich people can pursue their hobby, can honour their needs.. 

we all got to think about our life differently than what the world has taught us. 

It’s time to be authentic n be whoever it is that you are..

N believe that you are gonna make it big, by expressing this unique energy out ..

10. Go to bed with a clear, open and loving heart ♥️

Last but the most important one, sleep with a clear, love filled open heart!

We make mistakes, we hurt people unintentionally, we do stuff that we aren’t proud of..

Each day, we let it go! Just as we express gratitude at the beginning of each day, we release everything that has finished serving us, or is failing to serve us, every night!

We let all the hurt/ tears/ anger/ sadness or whatever it is holding us back, we thank it n then we let it go♥️

By forgiving ourselves, n others who have hurt us, we clear our hearts making space for new experiences!!

N with this, I am hoping, this post shifted some energy for all of you!

Hope you loved reading ‘my list of ten things’ that rich people do daily♥️

I would encourage you to create your own list that serves you! And if you feel like sharing it with us, please do so in the comments..

Adios, chao , namaste 🙏

Love, 

Aryaa

Carpe diem….

The power of writing, the influence of movies is undescribable beyond words..

Apart from the fact that writing (for some..like me;-)) is such an ‘ease’ building activity for the person writing, it can be of a huge impact to the person reading it. And the same goes for movies..

Watching movies like Dead Poets Society, always makes me enter that fluid state of influence, where words have that power to knock you out of inertia and get you thinking about the depth of life..


Finding our voice in this world is so crucial. It’s the backbone of authenticity..

Who are we? How can we seize the day when we aren’t aware of what that means ..

To me it means, be you.. NOW!! Follow your heart, listen to that voice calling you out loud, follow that trail ..

It leads to treasures beyond measure

~aryaa

I’m right here!

To all my dreams, 
galaxy sized and simple tiny ones, 
on the brink of manifesting,
I am right here..

To all of my paintings, 
future ones and the dones, 
closest to me, closer than any human being can get..
I am right here..

To all of my desires,
devoid of logic and reason,
my true gifts of being alive..
I am right here..

To all of my joys,
in baloons and bubbles
and the shades of green around
I am right here!

To all those beautiful people,
lives of whom will completely alter
after crossing paths with me,
I am right here…

To all those hearts,
dreaming of the ‘impossible’
never giving up on them
Im right here…

To the aunthenticity,
of being ‘me’,
irrespective of all the labels..
thank you for finding me
right here..

To this fun loving roller coaster
that disappoints only to bring out the perfection,
more clearly each time..
I am right here..

To all the ‘crazy’ ‘dreamers’,
holding on even to the last atom of their vision
you’re not alone
cuz Im right here..

~aryaa

Ps: I am right here YOU ♥️

Not taking myself seriously : my formula for success!!

Let’s say, I’ve gotten used to not taking myself seriously! Lol.. sounds like a joke, but seriously I’ve flipped careers like flip flops.. Who would take me seriously??

If I was 19 today, knowing the life I’ve led up to this point, I would’ve probably changed my dream of writing and desiring to inspire the world..

Yeah..cuz that strong desire led me through all the anguish I put myself for not knowing my life purpose, and in return, my highest self led me to my primary rescuer : Writing!!

Aha!! No regrets..

I wrote to soften the pain, (didn’t think of an easy way of alleviation) and writing made my life more tolerable. Initially I wrote only cuz it was a vent, n then I started enjoying the process of writing..Fifteen years later (since I dreamt of writing) I am writing pretty regularly..

Ive still not fulfilled my dream of writing books n yet I know this is gonna happen when the time is right!! May be the roller coaster has to get slightly more exciting before I can tip the point of writing inspiration excellently well ❤️hahaha

N coming to the point, I was saying, yeah… I’ve not taken myself seriously ..

After quitting my job, in the December of 2011, I pursued my international certification of Coaching way too seriously and imagined I’d be making a lot of money through it..in March of 2013 I was an internationally certified passion coach (with no passion 😝)

Bingo!!!! Next three and a half years no money, no clients… Just a part time assignment in a college in Pune, n that seemed like a kinda compromise (I totally enjoyed it though)😍

Which meant ‘failure’ lol…I like making it this dramatic..

Then I thought maybe receiving more coaching would be ideal for me to make things work out, cuz the process of coaching had always worked for me..

I’ve manifested my baby, thanks to all the letting go of my fears and blocks that I could bring up during coaching sessions..and if coaching could help me manifest my baby, a coaching business definitely can be manifested..

N bang!!! In September 2016, I decided to attend a coaches retreat in Bali!! My very first solo trip, first ever trip this far away from home, n a one of a kind experience. I somehow thanks to my husband, managed the resources for this luxurious trip❤️

I had such a great time in Bali!!! Full on fun…n yet, the retreat made it clear for me that coaching was off the table..I didn’t fit in a coaches role (remember I had to figure out my passion 😜)

I felt like I wasn’t meant to be a coach!! N that’s when I had started dabbling in art..

I stopped taking myself seriously!I didn’t wanna figure out what I was meant to do. I just wanted to take each day as it comes.

N in that letting go, I thoroughly started enjoying art!! I followed my instinct and purchased canvasses.. I pulled out my box of fabric paints and just painted canvasses after canvasses..

It’s been 8 months since I came back from Bali!! N in 8 months, not have I just found out how great I am as a coach, but also succeeded pretty well at finding a career that I love from the deep recesses of my soul…Creating Energy Art!!

From Dec 2011, to April 2017, I have flipped my life totally 🙂

Manifested my most awesome baby, manifested my dream job of creating Energy Art and I’ve realized I’m an awesome magnificent coach, that can support fellow beings like me, to hold on and not let go ..

Holding onto my dreams is the single most powerful formula that has worked for me!! None of the academic qualifications I took, n very lil of the experience from the four years of a corporate job, served me..

What really served me was my strong desire to find that place of comfort, where I could reach out to my higher self n stay connected!!

My depression and sadness served me, as it took me to writing!! But I could have let go..

I didn’t!!! I just didn’t!! I held on to my desires strongly!!

My desire of being a wife, a mom, my desire of finding the perfect career for which I’d not have to compromise even a bit, n one that let me be exactly who I am!!

N yes!! All of it is working now. 

I wanna celebrate the milestone of creating around 74 art pieces so far, in like seven months..🎁😍drum roll please ❤️


My art has travelled across the globe and I now see how I can serve people by being an excellent coach too..I was always an excellent coach❤️ I had to sort myself out before I could intend to serve others.. And art did it for me..

It’s amazing, how life puts you through this series of happy -sad events only to hand out on a platter, a course for you to realize all your dreams..

I know that for sure now!! N that’s what makes me an excellent coach.. I had to know my true potential before I could hold that space for anyone..

75th art piece : here I come!!

Dear world, gear up!!! Life is meant to be enjoyed and turned to your ways.. Don’t live it like others tell you to. Carve your own path n make your life your way!!! 

Find out what makes you go fuzzy!! Focus on it..

My day starts on a late note, cuz I am a late riser and I love it!! Cuz I get to blog late night when I am the most creative..

I play with my son, paint stuff, enjoy food and meals with family, watch movies like crazy..sing loads of songs , listen to music, dance sometimes, I smile at strangers, I gift my art to people across the globe cuz I feel like it..I get myself clicked, I window shop, I dream of writing books that will inspire the world to stay on this leading edge, I listen to Abraham hicks , I make sure me n my hubb hug our kid together, we play and have fun

Life is meant to be happy 🙂 n when it’s sad, it’s supposed to remind you of the stuff that makes you happy so you can go do it!!

So please stay happy!! When sad, think of what makes you happy..hold onto that sweet spot where life flows by easily..n if you have trouble finding it, chat with someone who can do it for you..friends, family, nature, whatever..
