Do you feel uncomfortable when you talk about change? Do you procrastinate your to dolist?

Change is inevitable whether you accept it or not.

Life, and everything around us that we see is changing constantly. The life we lead today is the result of the acceptance of change by nomadic people, our ancestors. They set before us the example that if we want to survive, we need to accept the change. 

Why do we resist change?
For me, it is easier to explain by giving my life experiences.  Two years back, I was feeling anemptiness inside me. I was not able to understand what is it that I wanted? May be that was the time when there was a calling for my soul journey to do a change in my life. I took time to understand it.  I knew something was going to change but I had to find out what it was.  
But, the question is why do we humans do not accept it easily, what take us so long to accept changes.

Nobody wants to leave the comfort zone to which we have become so accustomed. Wegetextremely comfortablein the current situation that we are scared of trying new things. we get scared of failing. We are scared of taking risk in our lives and are trappedbetween 'whatif or may be not’

There is freedom waiting for you,
On the breezes of the sky, and you ask
“what if I fall?” 
Oh but my darling, what if you fly?
-Erin Hanson

I remind myself of this quote whenever I am in achanging situation and I am trapped in my own thoughts and my comfort zone. There are certain things which are beyond your control. Like youcan't challenge the changing climate, you just adjust yourself according to that. Apply the same rule to your life.
Welcome the change:
To go with the flow is the easiest way of survival. it is always better not to complain, fret or be angry whenever we are getting uncomfortable during change in our lives. Have patience and gradually we will get accustomed to new change. Look around us, how slowly our earth haveevolved, we human beings have evolved.
Change is inevitable for our growth
Change is inevitable, we can only change ourselves and not the whole world. It is more realistic if we let things flow that comes naturally for ourselves and for others. Remember, everything starts and end within us. Life will be more comfortable to live if we welcome the new change and make a space for new opportunities wholeheartedly and create a healthy atmosphere by equalizing the two ends. 

I always pray to my source:
“Togrant me the serenity to accept changethe things I can't change,Courage to change the things, I can change and wisdom to know the difference”.

This strengthen my inner power to accept the Inevitable.

Change is hard at first,
messy in the middle 
and gorgeous at the end.
- Robin Sharma
we all have the ability , right now, even if we are not aware of it, to prepare for whatever comes next.
And something will come, do not let that moment passes you by.

Be aware and seek new things. May the force be with you!
Peace and Light

Forgive and Forget by Meenakshi
A common saying in our society is “Forgive and Forget”, let it go and move on. It is not easy for many us. We do not know the process of forgiveness or how we move on in our lives.

When one of my most trusted friend broke my trust. I was heartbroken. I was so heartbroken that, It took many days to come back to my reality. It was very difficult for me to accept the fact that I was backstabbed from my very trusted friend. I was faced with a choice.

“To hold resentment or to forgive”?

Most of us are under the misconception that forgiveness is about the other person. I definitely used to think this way. I thought; “They are going to come to their senses about how they have harmed me, and then they are going to come crawling back, and then maybe I’ll forgive them!” When I was listening my ego, that’s what I thought before I knew better, I now understand the truth about forgiveness.

I chose forgiveness, Of course, I cannot spread the love with resentment holding in my heart. In fact, I advocate this power of forgiveness to not just my family and friends, but to the world. I realized that forgiveness is not about accepting or excusing their behavior. It’s about letting it go and preventing their behavior from destroying my heart.

Forgiveness is the essence of freedom. It will free you from your past; it will free you for your future. It will free up space within you to create the life and the love you really want.

“Forgiveness liberates the soul. It removes fear.
That is why it is such a powerful weapon.” - Nelson Mandela
Even knowing the value of forgiveness, it is very difficult for many of us whether we will ever be able to forgive and fully let go. We all have the ability to forgive, for it is the nature of the life to release toxicity and return back to wholeness.

What is forgiveness?
Forgiveness is a decision. Forgiveness is about feeling the hurt, the pain, and the anger about what happened to you, and even amid all those feelings, making a choice to forgive. The reality is that it starts and ends with you. It has very little to do with the other person. 

Why forgive?
Resentments dictate our lives. When we hang on to resentments, we can't escape them--we may escape the people who triggered them, but unfortunately the feelings we're running from will make their way back into our new relationships. It's an aggravating process.

Forgiveness is perhaps one of the greatest abilities we have over our perception and emotions. Buddha, Jesus, Mohammed, and teachers of spirituality have known that choosing forgiveness and compassion over resentment is the path to a long and happy life. Now, Science is beginning to support the positive impact of forgiveness over Human’s Mind and Body.

Forgiveness is a healing process:
Forgiveness heals us mentally, emotionally and physically. In the body, forgiveness reduces pain, reduces stress hormones, lowers blood pressure, and extends life. In the mind, with the practice of deep unconditional forgiveness, mind creates powerful intelligence, peak performances, balanced emotional capacity, and even increases immunity.

How can we practice Forgiveness?
It all starts and ends with you!

“Forgive yourself for not knowing better at the time.
Forgive yourself for giving away your power. Forgive yourself for past behaviors.
Forgive yourself for the survival patterns and traits you picked up, while enduring that trauma.
Forgive yourself for being who you needed to be.”- Unknown

Forgiveness is a continuous process. It is a training that we have to give to ourselves. We need to turn our obstacles into opportunities for growth. We need to accept the things as they are. We need to have an unconditional empathy and understand the situation about the other person. Understand the why and how did they hurt you.

Let go of that negative emotion. First, we need to allow ourselves to feel the pain before letting it go. Cry, let the tears flow from you. Do something to make yourself physically active. Exercise, move yourself, and let all your emotions flow through the movement of your body.

Become willing to forgive. Willingness means that you are open to the possibility of forgiving. You are OPEN to it. It does not mean that all of the sudden, you’re over it. It does not mean you erase the past. It just means that you consciously create within your mind (and heart) a space for the possibility of a new reality. A reality in that you are no longer angry, in that you are forgiving.

Ask yourself. Ask yourself, "Why am I angry?" Clearly pinpoint the feelings you are holding.

Ask yourself, & How have I brought pain to this person or situation? How have I done a similar thing that was done to me? Getting honest about your part in the situation is essential.  Your part may be that you've done something similar to what was done to you. Or your part may be that you've held onto your own anger and hatred against a certain person for a long time. Get as honest as you can. Go down your list, look at the specific things you listed, and ask yourself & Have I done a similar thing?” Work on yourself.

Distinguish soul from ego. We have a true self, which is our inherent goodness (Soul), and a wounded self, which operates from fear (ego). It is your wounded self, not your true self, that hurts other people. This is true for everyone. When we operate from our wounded self (out of fear, sadness, and wounds), we hurt other people. This doesn't happen because were bad. It happens because were hurt. Viewing others as "bad" calls for justification of anger and resentment; viewing others as wounded calls for compassion.

“People hurt each other. It happens to everyone.
Intentionally, unintentionally, regretfully or not.
It’s a part of what we do as people. The beauty is that we have the ability to heal and forgive.”
-Adi Alsaid

Surrender. Eventually it will happen. Surrender to the reality that no matter how much time it will take, it will happen for you and for others. Feel GRATITUDE for your learning process.

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”- Mahatma Gandhi
Peace and Light

I am Limitless - By Meenakshi Sharma
Don’t put limitations on yourself because of your experiences.
Who you are right now is someone you have never been before.
You have no idea what exactly you are truly capable of manifesting and creating.

We have evolved, we have grown, and we have seen a beautiful life in time. Progress comes from when you make a choice to move forward for yourself. Only WE can change our lives!

We believe that limitations are things we say we are afraid of because of fear.

One thing we need to remember is that we create our own limitations.

I have been feeling free lately. I am not worried about what people think of me.

If I say certain things or if I live a certain lifestyle or dress up in  a certain way, I don’t have to worry. I came to a realization a few weeks ago that I had a fear of being trapped, and at my subconscious level, I wanted to be free. I was affected for some time, by my close friend's remarks or criticism about how my life should be. It was certainly hurting me deep inside, and I did not like the idea of me being trapped in those thoughts.

At one point in time, I thought if I become popular people will like me, So, I started putting myself in the spotlight. I was looking for validations from people that I was “good enough”. I thought other people’s approval brought me happiness. I never realized how I was trapping myself in my own box. I forgot that no one can make me happy except myself.

That’s when I decided that it was time to move on.  I began to see how much I was limiting myself. In fact, the self-definitions that we hold is our biggest limitation. If we think we are trapped, we will feel that way. If we believe in the power to be anything that starts with “I Am limitless”, we break all the limitations.

I am the person who always believes that we need to evolve, and we cannot be stuck in our own life experiences, be it good or bad. We are not the same person every day, we are always evolving as this planet earth has evolved in so many years.

Time is constantly moving and changing. Life is giving us opportunities in every step we are taking. It is about getting rid of the limitations that we put on ourselves by not getting attached to any one aspect of what it is that we do. Who we are is not made up a various list of things we have done, continue to do, or plan to do. Who we are, is the divine expression of choosing to have these experiences. We are not all of those things that we think we are or the labels that we put on ourselves.

Once that we start to believe in the power of manifesting, we will feel free and we will be able to act in ways and do things we previously thought we could not.  Manifestation is bringing your dreams, your vision, your passion into reality. Whatever you want, you think and feel and as per the law of attraction, manifestation occurs.

Things that keep me moving:

1.     We are limitless

If we stop putting my ourselves in boxes and let go of all the “I Am this” to “ I Am limitless”, our life will change. We are the whole universe in ourselves. Let’s get started in exploring it.

2.  Quit having expectations from people or situations.

We can’t change other people’s perceptions of us. People are going to do or think about what they have to; we can’t change them. Be contented with them and love what it is, or let them go. Quit fighting the never-ending battle of wishing things were different. We have a lot of expectations from people, from ourselves. Let’s get real with the way things are instead of how we want them to be. 

3. Quit questioning yourself.

We are the whole universe in ourselves. We are vast awareness of knowledge in ourselves, we just have to tap it in.

4. Quit having expectations to outcomes.

The first step is to become aware of. We have expectations when we are working hard towards our goal. We get attached to a feeling that we are working hard, and we should get success no matter what. Rather, visualize yourself of becoming successful and start taking steps to make it happen. We may see failure during this process, or we may achieve success on our first attempt, that’s where we have to be mindful. There is a big horizon in front of us. Go and explore!!!

5. We are free

Now that we are free right here at this moment. Feel free to do what we want or desire. Free to choose to be present and aware, completely open or closed.

6. Start Manifesting.

Start paying attention to what is going on in our lives. If we focus on our patterns and where we have to correct ourselves, we can do great things. Do pay attention to what’s going right or what’s going wrong. The first step is to use the law of attraction and think positive.

Be a magnet of what you desire” and the universe will work for you.

No matter what situation you are right now you have to see the bigger picture. Remember your true divine path.

Soul Talk By Meenakshi Sharma
When I started blogging, I mentioned myself as a spiritual and motivational writer. Once, I was approached by a website to write a blog for them. And one of the first questions they asked me: is my writing based on a certain religion? The answer is no. My writings are not based on any religion, rather I respect and accept all paths to God, to the consciousness. 

I was surprised on how people have misunderstood the word spirituality with religion, which has also inspired me to make people aware on this topic of spirituality and religion.

The majority of people adopt the religion that they are born into. I was born and brought up in a Hindu Brahmin family and followed this religion. Where do we come from? What happens after this life? These are some of life’s greatest questions. To some, there might not be definitive answer. For others, religion has provided answers and hope. For the majority of my own life, I fell under the the title of a “Hindu”. However, I continue to evolve into a deeper self and develop my ideas and thoughts of the world, so has my spiritualty. I am now more inclined towards the law of attraction, manifestation of thoughts and intentions, law of karma, and soul eternity.

My Personal Belief
I have always believed in a higher being, a God who has created this amazing life we live in. It’s all too unbelievable to explain about how we love the peace when wind blows, the way we connect with each other, the beauty of nature and every creation of this Mother earth. An eternal universe which reflects the energy  around us. And a mankind which is so beautiful and divine in which you have to believe it first to understand it. I constantly think and notice all the different energies of this wonderful divine power works in my life. I feel overwhelmed and blessed that I am able to under this divine concept at this stage of my life.

Every religion teaches one thing and that is to surrender the creator. our life is influenced by the culture, language and art where we are born. It’s every culture’s own depiction of why we are here, trying to provide guidance on how to live our life, and give us hope.

Myth about Spirituality
One of the biggest myths that I’ve encountered in life is that spiritual people leave everything and follow the path of salvation. They do not have any desires and moods. They eat and act in a certain way. Spiritual people will go on some pilgrimage to find themselves. Spirituality is not a religion, discipline or any routine. It is a way of living your life with oneness. We are born in this beautiful Earth surrounded by our loved ones, following a certain culture and religion, speaking a certain language. Spirituality is embarking on the journey of knowing our own self, the universe and everything beyond. All it requires is an open mind.  

Understanding Spirituality
You are God in physical body, you are spirit in the flesh. You are eternal life expressing itself as you. You are cosmic being. You are all power. You are all wisdom. You are all intelligence. You are a perfection. You are magnificence. You are creating the creation of you on this planet.

By being spiritual, I understood God is in ourselves, so we our taught to love and
make peace with everyone in the beginning of our lives. We all are given equal power and intelligence only we have to discover it, and that is called self-realization.

We all have God’s role within ourselves and our life. We all have a purpose in this world and according to that, we follow certain patterns in our life. We have all the power and wisdom to change things according to our learnings. We are creations of this magnificent universe where we are creating and evolving constantly. How magical is this!

We change our life when we change our thinking. We are a wonderful capable human being. It is time for us to acknowledge that we create our own reality with our thoughts. If we want to change our reality, then it is time for us to change our own mind.
Spirituality does not entertain our ego, nor play on lower vibrational frequencies with us. Spirituality means we must rise up and be awakened. Spirituality is a way of living with ONENESS.

God is consciousness. Not a creator. God is the source of creation itself. It is not independent of you. It is the totality of everything. So, when I call myself God I am not talking about my personal self. I am talking about the expression of God’s self that rests inside of me. The verb ENERGY… not the noun. Once you think God is a noun, person, place, or thing, you separate yourself from it and immediately become a limited being.

Ways to Practice Spirituality
Spirituality exists in all traditions and cultures. We can put our spiritualty in our daily life through ordinary, everyday activity. Meditate, focus on yourself, live a healthy life, give and feel grateful. Understand spirituality by practicing in your everyday life.

Peace and Light.

Fall in Love with .... By meenakshi

Fall in love with taking care of yourself.
Fall in love with the path of deep healing.
Fall in love with becoming the best version of yourself but with patience,
with compassion and respect to your own journey.
- Sylvester McNutt

There are always messages around you which universe is constantly sending, we have to be open to receive it. Every morning after my daily routine, I always read inspirational quotes as I feel I get message to follow for rest of my day.

Today I came up this beautiful quote by Sylvester McNutt, and it made complete sense to me. Many of us are constantly be taking care of others. We are programmed to put everyone and everything else first – our spouse, the kids, the house, the dog or our career.

By the end of the day we are exhausted, and there is no time or energy left for self-care or self-love. We say we have no time to concentrate on ourselves or we are too busy to even think that this is even important. It’s taken me so many years to understand that falling in love with yourself is the first priority and when I started loving myself, everything else just fell in place.

When we constantly focus on what we do not have, we start carrying extra weight on our shoulders. We stay stuck in the energy of deficiency rather than creation, manifestation and abundance. It blocks progressing forward and we get distracted from the path of healing ourselves. Rather then judging and criticizing ourselves, accept everything about life, be present in the moment. Today, right now you are wonderful. Feeling good in the present moment creates the energy to change for the better.

“We are like magnets: like attracts like. You become and attract what you think. Embrace and love all the aspects of yourself. We often concentrate on the upper layer of life which is easy to be seen and heal and we always ignore the unseen layer that is the hidden deep down in our subconscious mind. Embrace and love all the repressed parts of yourself even those you may be scared of, the inner child of you who needs light and healing.

By forgiving yourself and others we heal ourselves. Self-healing is a continuous process which takes time and patience. Fall madly and deeply in love with yourself during this process and practice to forgive, love and show up for yourself daily over and over again.

Surrender and trust the divine planning of your healing path. There are thousands of reasons to give up and give in. There are infinite scenarios in which we don’t do or finish something. Instead, follow it to completion. If we have a sense of purpose and meaning in what we do, if we find it fulfilling, it does not matter what it ultimately leads to. What matters is that we refuse to give up.

Practice gratitude and humility. There’s always a more productive way to talk about criticism for ourselves and for others. If we always remember to stay thankful and humble, it will make our path easier. Focus on giving and taking positivity, and reap the benefits of it which are untold and innumerable. There is a very clear difference between self-love or being selfish. Taking care of ourselves and putting our needs first will actually make us better people, because when we are happy inside, we transmit that happiness on the outside and by default we make other people happy too.

Nurture your most important relationship, the one we share with ourselves! Self-love is imperative to looking and feeling like the best version of yourself. Always take care of yourself first before taking care of others. Ultimately, though we spend the most time of our life with ourselves.

Respect your journey of your life. We are born for the reason and our own lessons to be learned during this lifetime. It was our choice, our decision, and just as we respect the ground we step on, that ground will respect our feet. Always do what’s best to conserve and keep your journey, and it will do the same for you. The universe has given everyone equal abundance according to our own karma. No one is behind or forward. Everyone is there where they have to be. Sometimes the same tasks have to be repeated until we learn our life lesson, it’s part of our journey. Even though we are tired, even though certain tasks are repeated so often, be patient. Make your path a mirror of yourself. We have our own soul to listen to. Love your path. Without this, nothing makes any sense.

Everyone has their own path. Walk yours with integrity and wish others peace on their journey.
When your paths merge, rejoice for their presence in your life.
When the paths are separate, return to the wholeness of yourself,
Give thanks for the footprints left on your soul, and embrace the time to journey on your own.

I practice meditation, which has been helping me quiet my mind and center myself. I find that I practice self-love the most through giving myself and my time to my loved ones. I feel my best when I am gentle with myself, then I am able to give myself more fully to those who need my love the most. I became mindful and started to act on what I need rather that what I wanted. I started practicing good self-care like good nutrition, exercise, yoga, proper sleep, intimacy and healthy social interactions. I started setting boundaries and protecting myself by saying NO, to things which were not serving me or helping me. When I became mindful, I started forgiving myself and others. Then the right people and circumstances that supported me started getting attracted towards me. 

You are a piece of GOD, you are a living, breathing creation that emanated from the universal mind of all creating source. You and God are the same thing. A wonderful gift to this planet earth is YOU!!
