If I got here so can you🎁

From being the most protected ‘baby’ in my family, ……to ‘still kinda being one’…

From being my grandfather’s fav grandchild ( no arguments here, all my cousins..as I was the youngest 😜)…… to making the choice of taking my first job, in another state away from home..

From choosing to go for Engineering instead of architecture …..to choosing none of the two n yet enjoying my career in the best manner possible..

From sampling a long list of careers after quitting my job…to simply being who I was..

From Shraddha Basrur to Shraddha Trasi to being Aryaa Akshay🎁

An artist.. A writer.. A mom.. A wife.. A daughter..A proud Indian.. It doesn’t matter which order I got here…

I am who I am!! And I do a great job at it!!

Whether you like it or not isn’t my job!!

My job is to make sure I like it n I DO🎁

N this is how all the good things in my life multiply … N my voice n work reaches the globe..

As it already does..

The gift of Mindfulness 🎁

There’s stuff that I read and it leads me to either of two things!

It either makes me feel great or it makes me focus on things that make me feel great!

And I guess this happens when we are focused on ‘feeling great’ ❤️🎁

If you’re listening to our media that kinda makes it super easy to feel ‘horrible’, one has got to be mindful, and then choose the feeling they choose to experience in life.

It’s not unreal, what all is happening! Yet it’s unreal to your experience of life, and that depends on your choice of experience.

If something horrible happened in the world, it’s real! Yet I have a choice if I want that ‘Horrible’ experience for me or not!! And in that sense, it can still be unreal as far as my experience is concerned. 

What is shaping up in our experience is what we choose for ourself! Are we mindfully choosing thoughts of experiences that are pleasant??? Or are we running down thoughts of others without screening them, allowing them to enter into our experience???

Think twice before you believe in a thought that comes from research!! Believe in it only if it serves you! 

Or else feel free to let it travel in space.

Articles that say only xyz people get hired easily, if you’re fitting the ‘xyz’ in the article, fair – it serves you! If not, have the conviction to say, this article doesn’t serve me..

Rather than believing that you’re ‘less potential of getting hired’

Why would you put energy into any thought that is against you?? If you are doing so, believe me, you’re digging your own grave..

Be Mindful. Choose wise n well serving thoughts. Choose n deliberately create your life experience ❤️🎁

Each one of us is MAGNIFICENCE personified❤️🎁

The NO-objection agreement!

Yeah! We all signed this agreement, when we chose planet earth as our school.

Which means, everything that is happening to us, is chosen by our soul, with a *mark, that means, we are eligible to change the happenings any time.

Statements like, life isn’t treating her well, or that he is going through a rough phase, or that poor family, they’re punch bags, God isn’t merciful, blah blah blah are all rubbish!

We are the creators of our life! This statement is true to the extent that even a tiny ant bite cannot happen to us without our will. Even the materials like a big house or car or diamond jewelry or loads of money can’t make an entry or exit from our life without our permission..

Which means if I don’t desire diamond jewelry to be important to me, it won’t come into my life! Or if diamond jewelry is really important to me, it will be a part of my life, a major part or minor part depending upon how much I choose to have it..

It is this simple!!

In our coach training, we were trained to support ourselves first n then our clients to create self awareness!!! Why???? 

If we are aware, that we choose these thoughts, we will immediately see the cause n effect of the manifestations in our lives.

What happens is that, we are haphazardly running through our lives as if we are victims of life, with life treating us badly👿

With these thoughts guiding our energy, the manifestation of the same is bound to happen. This repeats itself like a vicious cycle.

Until, one hard hit turns us around to change our thoughts after which there is no looking back.

And then, there are people like us!!! Coaches – whose job is to help people get aware of the energy they are holding. Once they’re aware, they have a choice to keep it or turn it around..

That’s exactly what happens in our sessions. We are able to co-create a reality, based on the thoughts and patterns, the energies we strongly, deeply CHOOSE..

We are able to let go of the patterns n energies that we held unknowingly..

And once we let go, our lives are only n only the manifestation of our magnificence..

How simple is this!!

That’s why we@intuned love our job❤️

A reason we are alive❤️ 


The perfection around is raw and ripe at the same time.

Raw cuz it appears to be lacking something it needs… like your toddlers room! The perfect mess, craved by people waiting to have kids around, yet in your eyes so ‘needing a tidy up’..

Ripe cuz it’s there waiting for you to see it like it is, ready and sweet with the lessons it has in store for you. 
It’s so perfect that we tend to overlook it or ignore it. Sometimes we’d rather see it as flawed than believe it to be perfect!

I don’t know why? Perfection is better when it’s unreachable? Does it make the journey exciting..

We can’t micro- control our lives to the extent of achieving that level of unreachable perfection… 

It’s like choosing to lose. 

We got it all right for us. We are winning. Why are people being killed in our perfect world then? 

I believe every soul chooses the journey and the experiences that it needs to grow before time. So when embodied, the soul has chosen to forget that all experiences are custom made for it, like the ala carte meal one chooses..

What lessons the soul learns are for the soul. I’ve realised suffering brings so much compassion along. Pain brings so much empathy along. 

Why would a soul choose pain and the trauma of losing its near ones? Cuz I guess it opens a huge door in our heart for love..

When we judge others, we are choosing to be narrow minded as opposed to open hearted! We prove to ourselves n the world that this is the only way I see it! I can look at it in hundred ways yet id rather choose to see you as an angry person.. Or anxious or unaccomodating or whining or whatever…

It’s time to see the perfection around!! Can happen only in this beautiful world. That each n every soul makes ones choices culminating in such beautiful perfection…  

How would you describe the perfection around? 

Would you like to see it as perfect?

The freedom of choosing ordinary!

At times we surprise ourselves doing stuff we never usually do just as we shock ourselves for behaving in a manner that’s not usually our style. Why do these inconsistencies happen?

I was wondering about stuff that separates successful people from the ordinary. There’s no doubt, that each one of us has potential to tap into the extra-ordinary hiding inside of us. Yet very few do it and that’s what separates them from the rest. The ability to excel,never give up, reject complacency every single time, their perseverance.

It’s really easy to accept ordinary. To not stretch ourselves at all. To stop instead of walking ahead, to give up on doing something that sounds or appears tough.

I’m guilty too. Choosing the easy way out isn’t a crime. Settling for less isn’t a crime. Choosing ordinary when extra ordinary could be an option, isn’t a crime. Choosing to stand still as opposed to growth isn’t wrong.

When I interact with my students, I seem to forget all this. I forget that their life is their choice.

I remember, one of my chemistry professors, used to expect this kind of sincerity from us. One day, he threw out all those students who had defaulted in submitting an assignment. It scared me cuz I didn’t like to be out of his class. A simple insulting act changed my life cuz defaulting on assignments was never an option for me after that.

All said n done, it’s always an individuals choice of how they want to live it. If I chose to be complacent, I guess I wouldn’t like to be told what needs to be done. The person in the shoes only can choose options, not the onlooker.

So, it’s a lesson for me. To grant everyone around me, the freedom to learn their lessons in their ways, at their time.

Do you really need what you think you do?

Every human being is different from each other. What one human being wants, may not be wanted by another human being!!

Now-a-days, the number of ads that one can see online : talking of online businesses that can make one richer, how to earn from home, blah blah blah – they can easily attract any sane person into it, irrespective of whether he deeply chooses it or not..

Also I’ve seen people, who, when they look at what others have, quickly jump to the conclusion that they need it too! And then they hoard themselves of that stuff, and it lies around in their space uselessly..

Come on folks!! Think for yourself – Do we really need it?

There can be no limit to our desires. Its a thought that says ‘WE need a CAR’, ‘WE need DIAMONDS’, ‘WE need A HUGE HOUSE’…

And once we follow this train of thought and believe in it, it makes sure we can never stay happy.. Cuz once we have one of the things in the list, it shouts ‘but you don’t have the rest..’

And the best part is this list isn’t a one that knows its end..Its endless 🙂 We will die one day but this list won’t.

Its very important for us to focus on what we choose to have in our lives. We can get whatever we choose, but sometimes when we choose superficially, our soul doesn’t choose it and hence it doesn’t come to us..

Then we blame around the law of attraction saying it doesn’t work!! I’m attracting money, its not coming in my life !!

Cuz may be you don’t choose it!! May be you choose the experiences that come with having just enough..

If one wishes, one can just dive deep into one’s soul & ask : What is it that you choose dear soul?

The answers will surely come! And when they do, one will know which ads to listen to and which ones to ignore..

Your playlist speaks to you,huh??

What kinda music are you listening to right now?

Is it lots of rhythm or melody? Are you listening to the words or to the tune?

How does the music make you feel -now?

Have you observed yourself enough to actually see a trend in the choice of songs & your moods?

I’ve observed that listening to some songs depresses me, almost all the time & I’m careful, thus avoiding those songs..

The songs needn’t be the ones of loneliness or despair.. It’s just the effect that kinda music has on you..

Similarly, I’ve observed in my case – rhythm and fast beat songs often liven up my mood -almost all the times. Even when I’m tired, these songs lift me. When I’m energetic, they make me giggle and smile from inside. I really feel blessed and grateful when I listen to such tracks..

The only times I know I need to lift my mood is when I feel switched off towards these rhythm songs. This gives me a hint, that something inside me is not okay..

Have you observed the effect of music on your moods? Which are your all time fav genres? Do you need to avoid any?

Have you thought about what your music playlist says to you all the time???
