The Million $ question!!!

It’s weird how I’ve been struggling to find answers all my life! I’d heard in the most awesome voice of Esther Hicks that every rocket of desire that is launched in our hearts, is fulfilled! We just got to allow it ..

Few months back, I fulfilled a strong desire of painting on one of the walls in my room (a small part of it). I’ve had this desire all throughout my pregnancy, of painting on one of my walls. I originally fancied painting some nice cartoon on it, yet when it came to doing it (by the time that my son was 2 plus years old) I just painted an expression of all that I chose in my life. I expressed myself with words like JOY! THRILL! FUN! TRUST❤️🎁

Expressing this desire of having fun, thrill,joy and the trust that I’m safe n perfect was like unlocking something big!!

I simply followed my joy, and the trip to Bali came along! Opportunities for trusting that I’m safe wherever I am! N then there was a desire of a painting, for my home!! I’d created energy doodles for so many others, that I felt the time to create something specific for me! For my home..

N that was my first canvas ever!! It was simple yet magical!! It was an expression, my attempt at expressing my desires yet not in words this time.. N I loved it..n I loved creating it..

I didnt know, a simple step like acting on something that’s been on your wish list for a looooong time could open so many doors for me!

I’ve been struggling with this question, ‘what is my purpose in this life?’ N it seemed like it was answered in Bali, I desired to conduct Training Programs, and address the beautiful people of this world..

I love the energy of a crowd, an unknown huge crowd!! I love to hold their pulse, n use my voice to mould their beliefs! Help them rubbish out,every belief that has failed to serve them n support them in being MINDFUL❤️ mindful enough to choose only those beliefs that serve them..

And then, there is the flight of a bird!! I feel like I’m flying, when each of these beautiful people, choose a higher vibration..

They choose themselves, they choose their joys, they choose their prosperity, they choose their beauty, their career..

And I feel the same way, when I Paint❤️🎁

I feel that joy!! I’ve never felt so much joy….other than when I’m in nature looking at mountains n flowers n water falls, other than when I’m playing with my son when he is in his bath tub, blowing bubbles with him, other than meditating at midnight in the healing swimming pool watching the stars n feeling the stillness..other than making incredible friendships with people who are so different than you, yet feeling that connection..other than when I’m in a new, unknown location, totally trusting my safety!!

Yeah painting equals all of that joy!! The joy of dipping my hands into paint, and using them (left n right both hands alike) on the canvas..it feels liberating!!

N I’m not sure if I’ve ever felt this way about any other assignment (other than the ones in which I address a huge unknown crowd) …its way too liberating!!!

The people who know me well, know that I feel the excitement far too soon for anything new that gets my attention..yet there is something totally ‘NON judgmental’ about art..

It’s a relationship between you n your art work!! Where it allows you to express yourselves the way you choose. And however it is perceived by the world, it will always be perfect. You choose when to move on to another work!! It totally lets you choose. I get to decide if it’s a work in progress or it’s finished!!

It looks very beautiful for the eyes of the world, yet I get to spoil it, experiment with it, layer it, n it finishes only when I feel so! It may not even look half of the beauty it was when it was still incomplete… Yet it’s perfect!!

It’s like the people in our lives! We may assume they will stay the way they were when we first time met them..

Yet, that’s not true! Yet totally perfect ❤️😍

You got to SEEE the perfection!! In the bad timing, the changes over time..

In everything!!

N with your art, you get to give it the value!

5 tips to reverse that energy drain!

The days when you feel like all your energy is getting sucked out of you, leaving you feel drained, try these tips.

  

1. De-clutter your space. Be it your office desk or room, garden or car. Claim your energy by simplifying the space. De-clutter is ‘my word’ for putting back things in their own space, like the clothes inside the cupboard, the documents inside their respective files n so on. If your desk is full of stuff, no wonder you’re feeling that drain. Just this one step is an instant ‘pick me up’!

2. Make room in the available space. The first tip is one way of making room. Other ways are get rid of stuff that’s lying untouched, out of use, or undone.  You’ve bought that dress you’re never gonna use, get rid of it! There is stuff that’s too used up and unfit for use. Show it the door. Stuff that needs to be done, like those stack of bills on your desk, go pay them n then get rid of it.

 3. Move stuff around!! I love this one. An activity as simple as dusting, can be an energy reviver. By dusting, you’re actually moving the dust out of place. Movement brings back energy. Even moving furniture around the room works great. When things are lying in the same place for a long time, they’re kinda deadening your energy. Simply moving them around can work wonders.

4. Let the breeze in. Light and ventilation can be an instant pick me up! Open some of the windows, and let the light n breeze in. Instant way to lift your energies. Well ventilated spaces feel lively as against ones where there’s very little ventilation. If you’re driving, try pulling down your window and let the oxygen hit you in your face. Try me. 

5. Drink water & breathe. We often forget to drink water which is a must have! When sensing an energy drain, just pick a bottle of water and start gulping it in good volume. You will feel the energy back in no time. Also, check in on your breaths. Try going out and take those deep breaths. Let all that fresh air and oxygen rush tingle your energies back. 

Try these tips out. They’re not just simple and easy, they’re way too effective. Your energy levels and the space you’re spending time in, are co-related. If you’re spending more time in the kitchen, use these tips there. If your workspace needs an energy fix, be my guest. If it’s your room that has been ignored for long, spend a little time, using these tips there.

Your energy is waiting for you to claim it back 🙂 go get it!!

Letting yourselves down? No chance!! Here’s 3 reasons why :-)

There is no such thing as letting oneself down! Why? Here are 3 straight reasons:

1. The picture in your mind, of how things should be is just a picture. It’s not a reading from the future for you to rate the present as ‘really bad!!’ If you knew the future, which said at age 25 you’d own a Ferrari, and you’re 25, still depending on local transport- okay you goofed up dude. But NO! You don’t know the future so relax

2. If you always performed above expectation, your life would be BORING!! What kinda growth are you expecting if you’re always satisfied with yourself? Sometimes, not getting what we want leads us to jumping higher, leads us to better stuff! So if you’re not happy with the outcomes, keep doing your best.

3. You chose to be who you now are, exactly as you now are! 

This is who you most wanted to be. So you can’t be goofing things up, even if they appear that way. There’s a growth trajectory you’re following because of all the pleasant and unpleasant situations you’re coming across. If you’d eliminate some of the unpleasant situations, I’m afraid your growth trajectory goes for a toss!

  
We deserve our own love the most! I feel, getting past the hurt caused by another person is easier as compared to getting past the hurt we cause for ourselves. All the negative self talk only goes to destroy our self esteem.

We are beautiful souls, totally worthy of all the love in this world. A negative outcome is the last thing to prompt us to feel that we let ourselves down!!

There is no such thing like that!! Everything is happening just as we consciously chose it to. Love yourselves and keep going!!

Love

Shraddha

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???

Be my guest : Revisit few of the most beautiful moments of your life!!

This experience is a rejuvenating one! To go back to those beautiful times, feeling the energy in those moments, re living them again & pouring the joy out of them back into our life!!

Wanna express huge gratitude for this amazing technology that allows me to share this stuff with you, allows me to bring you into a joyful circle filled with energy.

If you are with me here, reading this post, please feel free to sit comfortably in your chair, with both your feet grounded, hmmm touching the ground I meant. Simply observe your breath! Is it slow and full? Or is it shallow and too fast? If you wish to, you may simply take 3 deep breaths to bring your attention and awareness to this beautiful moment 🙂

All you have to do now, is visit some of the most beautiful n fun moments of your childhood! And while you are experiencing all the joy, do pay attention to every detail that filled you with joy!! So be my guest, close your eyes & take off into the bliss!!

Fill yourselves with bliss & joy 🙂

What do you see? What about those moments fills you with joy? Is it really joy or something else?

You know what comes to me? The fun time I had when I was 4 or 5 years old, running around Shivaji Park, getting trained for gymnastics 🙂 Climbing one of the 10 feet poles, with no fear of height, feeling full of confidence, knowing that I’l be able to climb down just as easily as I climb up – No fear of ‘What If I fall?’- Wow!!!

I can’t believe sometimes that with age, I’ve become so timid and full of fear! Where did I lose all my confidence? Where was that fearless Shraddha, who climbed that pole simply for the fun of it! By revisiting this beautiful moment, I pour back into my life- the fearlessness, the confidence, the fun loving-ness !!

Wow!! This is too beautiful 🙂 And you know what? We can bring this energy back into our life, when ever we choose to! Just close your eyes, and revisit the beauty & bliss! Its all yours! It always was..

We were just too busy getting somewhere else..No harm.. We still have time 🙂 Every minute of our life is worth all the joy and bliss in this world- If only we let it be:)

Signing off with infinite gratitude:)
