With yourself

Shower mindfully

Have you ever realised that you are in the shower but barely present? I have. I realised that I would soap myself, shampoo and condition my hair, and sometimes even brush teeth while the water is still running. Completely absent from the present moment.

Here is a quick guide if you tend to shower unconsciously too.

Tap on.

Wash.

Tap off.

Soap body.

Tap on.

Rinse off soap.

Tap off.

Use the on & off method above and continue with your shower ritual. Shampoo, condition, brush, floss, oil pull, etc. Sounds very basic and simple. Even obvious. Try it. It is very calming and you would realise that you tend to linger in the shower longer than necessary because of your mind.

The whispers of the soul

IMG_0580

What is your soul whispering to you right this very moment?

What would you change about your life if you stopped and adjusted your life one whisper at a time?

How would you live, love and most importantly, how would you feel?

The whispers are the gateways that lead us to living the live of our dreams. We just need to listen and walk down the path with faith and completely surrender that all is well.

Our intuition is always there to guide us to live limitlessly. Years of fear, anxiety, pain, shame, resistance and the in-built “lack” mentality are some of the common blockages in our lives. In a true state of calm, the intuition will be louder than any of the above.

Ever felt trapped in a particular situation? You can change it! Every time you catch yourself thinking, “If only…’ or ‘What if…’, that is your soul stirring you on! Act on it. If you are telling yourself that you will start working on something that you desire when you truly feel ready… that time might never come as you might never ever feel ready. Start somewhere, anywhere. You are good enough to start working on your dream/s now

Just listen to one tiny whisper at a time – what can you change today? 🙂 ❤

With others, With Spirit, With yourself

No coming, no going

From Plum Village:

“No coming, no going, no after, no before.

I hold you close to me, I release you to be so free.

Because I am in you, and you are in me.

Because I am in you, and you are in me.”

I weeped the first time I heard this song. The message of interconnectedness and unity is so strong in this song. 

Sometimes it’s so hard to embrace our oneness in a world that so wrapped around individuality and separateness. All I want to do most of the time is to survive and not drown. But the realisation is that noone can force me to drown. One can only cause a turbulent sea in my life but I get the power to decide to either swim or drown. At times, I would have to swim hard over extended periods of time, and at other times, I can gracefully float. I have the power to choose. And I choose to stay afloat. Always.

This song also reminds me of my dad. Even though he has left his physical body, he is still energetically very much present in my life. He has immersed fully into oneness as he left his vessel and the more I connect to the stillness within, the closer I get to him too. He and I are no different. You and I are no different. We are all of the same essence.

Just for today…

I got this inspiration from the 5 reiki principles! But instead of 5, I am offering you just this one line to live by just for today

Just for today, I will consciously transform all of my thoughts and words into positive, kind and empowering ones.

Be conscious of your thoughts and words today. Pay attention to them. If a negative thought comes up, change it into a positive thought instead.

Speak only words that are positive, empowering (for your self and others) and kind.

If you stray, remember your intention and come back to practice. 🙂

Write this intention and leave it somewhere that will serve as a gentle reminder to you.

Focus on this intention for a month and see how magnificently your life and outlook has changed! ♥️
