Three words? Wanna play?

What if you had to describe the crux of your life in three words??

Would you find those three words that did justice to a life that you call ‘yours’??


It was easy to find three words that described the richness of life for me!

I have a list of stuff that makes me happy. And all of the items on the list seem to be connected to these three words.

1. Art!!!

My love for art, is thanks to the depth that it adds to my life. 

I may have not been an avid reader, yet writing has been my saviour: the one that gave me courage when life seemed hollow.

Movies give such an added dimension to life. As if you have travelled the world in the shoes of a stranger. 

Music, plays, paintings or be it any art ! It simply allows us to connect with the creator within. 

2. Family!

If not for my family, I would never have felt grounded to this planet. Perhaps I would be travelling the globe like a nomad who knows nothing of his roots.

My family is my biggest gift 🎁 and every time that I imagine my dreamy life, my family is right there, as if they were an extension of me (n they are)

3. Oneness!!

It’s this deep feeling of oneness that soothed me as I stared at the royal mountains in Auli, or listened to the gurgling sounds of the bhagirathi.. my trip to auli has been the trip that I most frequently go back to in my head n heart..

It’s this same feeling that takes me over when I’m in nature, with flowers or birds…traveling in an unknown country, getting to know the culture of the people there..

It’s like all of us are deeply connected by this beauty of it all..

What’s getting our attention today?

Did you know,every single thought we hold is becoming true in ways we have no idea of?
Let’s try focusing our attention on something like a ‘red flower’ or a ‘blue bus’. Let’s test n see if it will be sent to us. If we are vibrating strongly we may see it the very minute we think of it.

And if not it could take days or weeks. If you see it the very instant, the good news is that you’re vibrating super strongly ❤️🎁 n the bad news is, if you haven’t been aware of your thoughts, every single ‘waste’ thought is manifesting in your life..

“Why am I not getting that job? Why am I messing up? Life is tough!!!!!”

Yeah all of those thoughts are becoming your reality!! As you think them, life is getting tougher..you’re on your way to super messing up, and yes!! You are far away from that job..

Just pause for a second and feel your breath!

You are meant to be happy! That job is meant to be yours! You are meant to have fruitful work assignments and fulfilling relationships. All that money is meant to come to you..

Only if you let it!!!! Yes🎁you got to let it come..and stop blocking it..

I got to share my success story of manifesting my first ever SOLO trip abroad, that too for not a day or two but full on 8 days❤️😍

A retreat that is a gift from my soul. How did I know that it was a gift from my soul?

On seeing someone or something, have you ever felt deeply in your heart that the person or the thing was meant to be yours??

Yeah! When I heard of the retreat, even though it costed thousands of US$, which weren’t available with me at that time, I still felt the urge to attend the retreat in BALI❤️😍

And not coincidently I believe, my sis in law had just returned from her honeymoon from BALI🎁 n bought a box of chocoalmonds..

I used the cover of that box and stuck it on my wall!!


I focused all my attention on being there. I trusted somehow the funds will come!! I somehow managed to make the tiny part payment that reserved my seat for the retreat. 

I also bought gifts for the beautiful people I was meant to meet there. People from across the globe would be there, and I felt like taking some tiny gifts that travelled all the way from India specially for them❤️🎁 this meant for sure, I was going!!!

If I truly desired in attending this retreat what do you think I would focus my attention on?

I focused all my attention on being there rather than on ‘what if the funds didn’t come’..

And guess what! In less than ten days from today I Am GOING❤️🎁

This wasn’t just a money manifestation for me!

I had to let go of every thought like ‘what would people think of me traveling alone? How would I travel alone? What would my two year old kid do? How can I spend so much money on a 8 days trip to Bali ALONE?????’

And I let go of them. All that I thought about was of being there.

Of having the chance to meet my soulmate Lainey, who has been such an important factor in my growth,who has been one of the reasons I am a mother, n one of the reasons I’m feeling happy..

Of my chance to dive deep into my soul, and figure out stuff.

I did it! I’m on a path of manifesting every bit that my soul desires ..

And you can do too.

The important question!!!

What’s getting our attention today???

Underrated GRATITUDE, our key to abundance❤️🎁

Wanna catch a glimpse of abundance? Go to the beach, and into shallow, ankle deep waters. Now look at the sea!

That is abundance ❤️

Irrespective of how deep you’re into the waters, you will get overwhelmed at the endless quantity out there❤️🎁

Yep! That’s abundance..

And you’re born into it❤️🎁

No choice to any life (human, worm,bird, beast) whatsoever! Whether or not they wanna experience it, they just got to…. cuz life is abundance..

We humans tune ourselves out of it, by under rating all the joys we already have, that spins us off into a cycle of lack.

Take time today to offer gratitude for the food in your plate, the great and secure sleep you are blessed with, good water to drink, a beautiful family to take care of you, a space you call home, hugs and kisses full of love, nature and its bounty around, …

Raindrops on roses, and whiskers on kittens ..❤️🎁 that’s probably how this song got written, overflowing with gratitude..

Check it out as you make your gratitude list ❤️My favorite things❤️
