There are many who don’t believe that there are past lives. Many religions refuse their followers even an entry into this thought . The question is, how can we negate or not allow ourselves the right to explore  new realms that open up before us , especially when it is energy that is the basis and not any religion or faith.

The time has come when the consciousness on earth is expanding rapidly. There are more and more aware souls evolving in physical, mental and emotional health and understanding of the universe and who they are. They refrain from getting enmeshed into the physical plane where their souls journey for a learning of  lessons which complete them , thereby freeing them from the bondage of ignorance of  the spiritual kind.

A poet has said that a city dwells within every human being. Therefore, we have a kind person, a biased person, a loving and yet often cruel person, a confident but sometimes diffident person…all within us .These surface during different phases in life, as parts of our own personality.

Similarly, sometimes, some open files from the past which have a negative registration in our sub conscious mind begin to intrude in our current life , thereby causing a disturbance and imbalance , not to mention an altered state of consciousness. Today, there are several case studies available to authenticate this. 

Being a therapist, I have also seen this happen before my eyes when my client has been regressed and the negative files healed. But then, I talk from experience and conviction. On one level, I understand that it is difficult for anyone to believe words without the experience matching them. However, a strange fear ( of the unknown, probably ) governs people at large , leading to a random circulation of  myths  about past life regression which is detrimental for those who believe them , who might have otherwise attempted healing through this amazing modality.

As therapists believe, in the next few years , this method which is yet a paradigm and comes under “alternate healing ” at this time, will become mainstream. Energy work is taking over as a healing modality and , rightly so. It is a basic fact that everything is energy. The easy flow of energy is health and any blocks of energy is ill health. Energy is blocked by the quality of thought energy combined with negative emotions often sparked by the ego. A deep conditioning of the mind by other people and environments can contribute to energy blocks as well.

There are  cases of long term cures seen with the use of  Hypnotherapy, Reiki, Pranic Healing , Pranayama and Yoga. And regression is one of the most powerful tools we have today to become well and remain well. The pre condition is faith , acceptability and full participation in the therapy.

When we are born, we bring only that much energy from the spirit world which we need on the earth to fulfill our soul purpose. Naturally, therefore, without that extra energy, we are inclined to feel lonely or somewhat incomplete. The gap between these two energy levels are perhaps the reason we are born on this physical plane…to get back the balance energy , ironically, by “losing” our “I” identity which separates us from the unified – in – diversity universe..AND by understanding that each form of creation is integrated with another. Therefore, wisdom lies in transforming our “lonely” state of mind into perceiving it as “alone” time here on earth which can be used to regain the lost energy by living a life of harmony and flowing with the tide of time and events as an observer rather than an involved party ; to live as a boat on a river which can successfully navigate the river only if it stays afloat but will sink if there is a hole and water gets in. So must we swim the river of life without “sinking” into the depths of the “temporary” sojourn on the earth.

Have you seen someone full of energy suddenly become a “different” person ? Haven’t we heard people say , ” I never imagined that this person was capable of this .” Well, there can be much more to this statement than meets the eye.
Changes happen to everyone. But a drastic alteration of one’s personality can be very significant .
As we all are living energy bodies, so also, there are many deceased energies which are still hovering around on the physical plane without a form or body. This can happen when there is a sudden death and the soul has not realized this due to the suddenness of the event. It can also happen if the near and dear ones hold onto the spirit of the dead loved one and don’t allow it to transit into the realm of light. A third reason for the energy to remain here is the desires of the dead person which have not been fulfilled.
Interestingly, what happens in many cases is that this energy can walk into a living person’s aura and park itself there, dictating the behavior of that bewildered person who does know what hit him ! For example, if someone is trying hard to quit smoking and has a perforated or broken aura, a deceased chain smoker’s energy that wants to experience smoking will walk in like an uninvited guest and stay there. A person with this kind of energy attachment will try to quit every week but will keep coming back to smoking. The attached energy will not let him quit.

This brings me to the aura. Under what circumstances can the aura weaken to allow energy attachment ? Simple ! What weakens us is the internalization of any negativity or any kind of imbalance.

A negative thought can either be expelled with awareness as being detrimental , or can be received in a weak moment . This thought will create a negative emotional charge , thereby blocking the energy fields ( CHAKRAS) . This person will then begin to vibrate on a low frequency and run the risk of cracking the auric field.

Chronic stress, anxiety , sadness, misery, deep hurts, jealousy , bottling up grief, fears , insecurities are some of the highly avoidable items of excess baggage. Besides being a complete antithesis of wisdom, they can be lethal to the happiness and wholesome spirit of an individual.

It is unacceptable, therefore, that any human being would opt for anything less than being wholesome. What separates man and man is the darkness of ignorance vis- a- vis the dawn of awareness and light.

May we all live in the light !

Cheers !

Do you get stuck with the same thought ? Are you able to change your thinking on issues which you have fixed views on ? Can you think differently from your family and friends ? Do you introspect on your belief system to see if you are on the right track ?

I am sure none of us can underplay the role of conditioning in our lives . It is the most subtle form of creating mindsets. And I say this because there is little awareness of what we build up inside us over a period of time. We believe our parents out of respect and adopt their thinking patterns. Peer pressure can fix our mind like nothing else can ! The need to belong is greater than the possible outcome of invoking anger,  sanctions and disapproval resulting from being an independent thinker and “daring” to be different.

Mindsets can be little or huge , though , in my book, each of these are to be examined under a microscope before their worth is proven. What is or SHOULD be unacceptable are those which have been ingrained within us from external sources. ..Some may be compatible and others may not be…I will explain.

Every human being is an individual soul,  a unique soul , here on its own journey, with its own “karmic” connections and the freedom of choices. We are here for the EXPERIENCE of being human beings and to learn the lessons we came to learn. Along our journey, we are aided by other souls in the form of family, friends and even those we call enemies. By the very fact that we journey alone under varied environments and situations, how can the  solutions for one be a solution for all ?

But, along the same journey, we do tend to ,  unwittingly and without realizing, pick up many beliefs of others which may hinder us in accomplishing our soul purpose. The simple argument against doing this is , “I am not anyone else.  So, I will have to live by my choices and not necessarily the ones which are recommended by others.”

So, to  become an accomplished ,  independent thinker, I may have to unlearn some of the learning  from my past young and immature days. I might have to resist the rigidities of others being foisted on me. Of course, I may be frowned upon if I try to deviate from old set patterns established over the years but I have to tolerate this if I want to carry on with my own journey and not get side-tracked into attaching myself onto someone else’s journey.

Why do I say this ? Haven’t you seen that with change and evolution, the truth and validity of beliefs and principles also change?  There are glaring examples everywhere. For example, look at the clothes women are wearing with great comfort today;  the older generations would have balked at the very thought ! In fact, with modernization comes a pattern of thinking and living unknown to man a few years earlier. This is what we call evolution from phase to phase.

What is noteworthy however, and the point I am trying to make is that, we are able to change our outer selves . But the MINDSETS seem to go on forever ! We are not interested in coming out of  the boxes we have sunk comfortably into. I don’t have a quarrel with mindsets if they become so after they are introspected on and found to be viable and conducive to our growth. Those then become beacons to follow.

My target is only those mindsets which have been adopted without  rational thinking and based on what OTHERS think about how you should think and behave. This line of thought  generally incorporates  many  prejudices. biases and such imbalances which warp the psyche . The resulting actions then would obviously be other – oriented , too and maybe, and not necessarily growth – oriented.

Whether it is religion, or family feuds, “family” patterns and mindsets, personal likes and dislikes, or fear of social sanction , wise people recommend a fair assessment and introspection of thoughts before forming opinions which , when confirmed again and again either by ourselves or by others as the gospel truth, tend to become mindsets. And we continue to live by them permanently, and ironically,  in a constantly changing world.

We can be like a flowing river which collects pebbles , sand , weeds etc. along the journey , but unwaveringly ,  makes new pathways to skirt the obstacles which block it , to reach the ocean and merge with it. Mindsets are the blocks and shifting perspectives to accommodate change are new pathways to reach and merge with Divinity.

Why would we settle for anything less ?

Hey guys, this is meant to be a huge compliment to facebook , but more to its subscribers and users.

It is so amazing to see people not known to each other at all, coming forth to form a bond based on thoughts, emotions, poetry, even mundane statements like “God ! when will it stop raining ? I hate rains”. Or, “just returned from Timbuktu and leaving shortly for Siberia ! “(yuck ! yuck ! )

Oh, and don’t miss the daily quotient queries ! ” How is your love quotient today ?” Answer : “98%”.

” And how about your food addiction quotient today ?” Answer: ” “MMMMMM…110 %. I have put on TWO pounds today ! Holy COW ! ( pun unintended ). “

“Alright ! How about loneliness ? Or unhappiness ? How is it today and what do you think you can project for tomorrow and the day after so that I can do a little prediction also ? Isn’t that a clever idea ? All the Daily Horoscopes will get a run for their posts !”

STOP, STOP Guys ! I have heard of fluctuating gold and silver prices, of the dollar and the pound and of shares , but think of US fluctuating everyday ! Hold it !  Not a good idea AT ALL . Haven’t I told you children time and time again about  consistency and balance ? Think !

To move on, someone has started a  group called “Best Friends”  , grandly declaring that you have to “qualify” to join it. “Yes, Sir ! We will try our best to come up to your expectations !”

Another CRRRAZZY one is ” CRRRAZZZZY- THE NEW NORMAL” which challenges so called “normal” people to show off their intellectual craziness ! I regret to say that I don’t qualify ! Sad but true ! I mean, I am both crazy AND normal but not both together !

Do you remember this song ? “Old Mcdonald had a farm , eeya eeya o . ” Well, now there are many Mcdonalds young and old on facebook who own more farms than the sum total of farms in the world. EVEN THAT , only on facebook ! Gawd ! I sound like an advertisement for Facebook.

Anyways, doesn’t it set you thinking that actually, friends on Facebook , just by virtue of the distance factor from each other, breathe more freely and bond better ? They have all the space in the world. They can bond , blog or block people from their world at will and pleasure. I can hear many sighs saying, “yeah,  we could do well with a “delete” or “block” key in real life .

Jokes apart, the question is , will facebook prove to be a “book” on  relationships or de”face”  its “face” once friends from facebook  meet face to face ?

Some smiles and then some food for thought !

Wishing you great facebooking …and until next time …

As a child, I heard my mother counsel my siblings and me in many creative ways . One of them was about spouting foul words. She used to say, “never call anyone a “donkey” because first , you have to BECOME a donkey yourself”. Huh ? What was THAT ? We never quite understood how WE could BECOME donkeys just by calling someone a donkey.

Today, when I have learnt the science behind thought and speech, I am amazed at how simply my mother had taught us something so profound.

The fact is that everything starts with your thought. The “donkey” therefore, enters you from the navel, for this is where thoughts begin. Then is attached the emotion that goes with it and I don’t need to spell out the emotion that would motivate us to call anyone a “donkey”. Once attached to the emotion, the thought travels rapidly from the solar plexus to the heart and straight out through the throat in the form of  the actual word “donkey”.

And what is the result ? You have first let yourself become the donkey. Then the poor donkey, for no fault of his, has been given a negative connotation. And finally, you may have started a war with the person you called a donkey because he is not going to take it as a compliment.

Even today, when anyone calls anyone names, I smile as I remember this story. And I realize that anger against anyone is anger against oneself actually. Instead, acting from the space of compassion and tolerance will never make you a donkey or anything else again ! And the poor donkey can regain his lost respect !

Folks, this phrase “No Problem” has bothered me since a very long time ! THE URBAN MANTRA ! No one seems to have ANY problem . Each time you ask anyone, “is there a  problem ?”, you are told “ No problem”.

It would be funny if those two words were not a cry waiting to be heard ! The eyes , the windows of the soul , look a little tortured and teary! The face fights to relinquish its contorted look ! But the lips mechanically mouth the words “no problem”. The onlooker is not fooled !

Wow ! What attractive masks we have designed for ourselves , isn’t it ? And the best one yet is “no problem”. And some have mastered the art of saying the words with a big smile even if that smile fails to reach the eyes !

It is evident that all of us have issues. Since time immemorial, people in all the ages have had issues. The difference is that earlier, there was the element of trust and loyalty, mutual respect, compassion , and a genuine desire to help the ones in need, monetarily and in every other way. Utmost confidentiality was maintained and the left arm didn’t know what the right arm was doing. People could confide their problems and get help.

There was an unwritten rule that 10% of all earned wealth was to be donated to further the cause of those in need.

Today, greed rules people. The “each one for themselves” syndrome has washed away the bonds of humanity . Selfish attitudes have diluted the unity and strength  of families and partnerships. By and large,  Fear energy has replaced the Love energy. A lack of trust has been the direct offshoot. And this in turn, has generated a lack of confidence . This lack of confidence and trust forces people to wear masks and we try very hard to let the artificial appear  natural.  And so, we come a full circle here .


No problem”,  folks ! No Problem !

Technology helps you think and then write. There are no erasers once you click !

The Daily Post

Topic #281:

Does technology help you write?

One comical thing about writers and writing is they often ask each other if there is a secret tool, or software, they use that makes writing easier. Some writers swear by a particular tool, or keyboard, or special software (or WordPress plugin), while others see tools as ways to help with scheduling, or writing related tasks, but see the process of writing simply about putting their but in the chair.

Now that you’ve been writing for awhile, does technology help or not help you in the writing process? What do you wish a tool like WordPress could do to help?
