For a Happier Life, Make Yourself a Priority

For a Happier Life, Make Yourself a PriorityI truly believe that self-love is the most important love of all. Does that sound selfish? It really isn’t because a person who has ample self-love is secure enough to not depend on others for all the wrong reasons.

Self-love is liberating as it enables us to not enter the most important relationships in our life with the mindset of getting something out of them. As vicious patterns of neediness break, we learn to celebrate our partnerships and relationships as the holy grounds for unconditional love that they truly are.

If you have always been too busy taking care of others, it’s time to stop and reconsider your priorities. No matter what anyone else says, self-love is not selfishness. Making time to take care of your body, mind and soul is a holy ritual you adopt to honor the Divine within.

If self-care isn’t part of your daily routine yet, then start by taking out a few minutes each day only for yourself. In this time, do something you have always wanted to do but felt you don’t have enough time for. It could be something simple like learning a new skill, adopting a hobby, or maybe, even just digitally disconnecting yourself and relaxing.

Why is Self-love important?

As humans, our greatest hankering is after love. Each one of us craves for a love so deep and true that it can hold us in its arms forever. However, for most of us, finding such a love through another human being has been nothing more than an endeavor in disappointment. In fact, even those who believe that they have found total fulfillment in their relationships, go through moments of deep disappointment.

Although it’s only natural to turn outwards for love, true satisfaction can be found only by turning inwards. What lies within is the Truth; everything outside is only a mirror reflection of what’s contained within. If you want others to love you, you have to love yourself first. People will always take cues from how you treat yourself, and they, in turn, will treat you similarly.

Also, self-love is not selfish at all because how can you ever give to another what you don’t have for yourself? If you’ll enter a relationship feeling like there’s a gaping hole which another person will fill in for you, then you are really just setting yourself up for disappointment.

No one can ever fulfill you. Love is the essence of our being – the fountain of infinite unconditional love is within. When we are connected with the Universe or Source, we are able to gain our sustenance from within. The Divine nectar of infinite love is already flowing in our hearts – it’s our ignorance which has made us believe otherwise.

Self-Care Rituals

Below are a few suggestions for self-care that you can incorporate into your daily life. Loving yourself, first and foremost, is about celebrating who you are. Take your pick and adopt the rituals that appeal to you – feel free to modify them to suit your needs:

  1. Make time for your meals – Before you work on devoting a certain amount of time to self-care, it’s important to infuse mindfulness in the things that you are already doing. Eating is one of the greatest acts of self-care as that’s how you nourish your body, mind, and soul. Make it a daily ritual to eat all your meals in peace. Set your phone and other electronic gadgets aside – sit down with peace and happy anticipation in your heart to truly relish each meal. Discard the habit of eating while walking or doing anything else and develop the habit of chewing each bite of food with the kind of total mindfulness it deserves. As you eat, imagine how each morsel is making you healthier, happier and more beautiful.
  2. Relax in the bath – There is nothing anywhere as decadent as a warm bath with essential oils, aromatic candles and soft music in the background. It is one of those little pleasures in life that can account for great joy if one chooses to make time for it. I would suggest making this a daily bedtime or waking up ritual. Each bath session will help you feel more grounded and truly soaked in unconditional love. You can also add some organic homemade scrubs and packs to better take care of your lovely skin. There is something deeply self-assuring about touching your own self with gentleness, kindness, and care. Give this gift to yourself because you truly deserve it!
  3. Develop the habit of readingReading positive books can be tremendously empowering and deeply healing. Choose your books with care – anything that leaves you feeling angry or unhappy is not the right choice. There is already a lot of pain and suffering in this world – the whole point of self-care is to surround yourself with so much love and positivity that the darkness of this world can’t touch you. Thanks to technology, you can now also listen to audio books while doing your daily chores. Make this investment in your mind and soul by feeding it only with positive thoughts.
  4. Connect with nature – Take a walk in your local park or somewhere in nature. Simply being surrounded by nature has a deeply soothing effect on us. If you are up for it, then you can also consider taking a walk barefoot in the grass. With every breath that you are taking in, visualize as if you are absorbing the life force energy of nature. Upon every exhalation, visualize releasing all your tensions, stresses and worries.
  5. Build your meditation practice – Building a daily meditation practice is the greatest gift you can give to yourself. Meditation calms the mind – it brings us back in touch with our truth. Find a practice that appeals to you and which you can do twice every day. While you can meditate at any time of the day, the best time for doing it is right after you wake up and right before you retire to bed because that’s when the doors of your subconscious are left wide open. At that point, whatever goes inside your mind is likely to leave a deep impact on your life and your consciousness.

Start today because it all begins with just one gesture. Wishing you a wonderful journey of infinite unconditional love!

Your Psychic Self

your-psychic-selfAs children, we learn about our five senses: sight, hearing, smell, touch, and taste.  Even though we are born with a sixth sense, our intuition, by the age of three adults have convinced us that the ‘invisible friend’ we see or hear is a figment of our playful, childlike imagination. We push away our extrasensory perception and over time, we un-learn how to tap into our natural telepathic senses.

Awakening your psychic abilities is a simple, three-step process:

  1. Believe you can;
  2. Meditate;
  3. Practice, Practice, Practice.

Plan to tap into the psychic realms daily. Your meditation practice should involve relaxation and breathing exercises as well as affirmations and visualizations of your aura, or energy field. Your energy field consists of invisible layers of vital energy, named the etheric body, mental body, emotional body, causal body, and spiritual body. Becoming aware of the frequencies of your own aura, and improving the acuity of your pineal gland (a pea-sized, pine-cone-shaped gland located in the middle of your brain) through meditation, will facilitate your direct communication with the spiritual realms.

No special ESP-training is needed, you can create your own exercises – the key requirements are that you clear your mind, relax your body, get quiet, be still – and listen.

Before you start your psychic awareness journey, decide which psychic sense you want to develop. Everyone has a number of natural perceptive skills, but most people have a specialty. Which of your ‘Clairs’ do you want to work on? Clairsentience (feeling)? Clairvoyance (seeing)? Clairaudience (hearing)? Or, perhaps you want to practice one of the more esoteric Clairs: clairalience (smelling), clairgustance (tasting), or claircognizance (inner knowing).

There are many ways to engage with your ‘sixth sense’ insights. Experiment, see which divination methods resonate best with your natural abilities. Many psychics excel at several occult practices, but you should settle on one or two, so you develop a proficiency. Once you have honed your technique, you can add others. For example, you could take up psychometry (reading objects); use a pendulum to decipher messages from your subconscious; or learn to dowse. You could read tea leaves or Tarot cards; do palmistry or scry; take up automatic writing; develop your medical intuitive skills, or become a mental medium. Just decide what area of the occult arts will best match your intuitive skill set, and then, feel confident and positive, get quiet – and be your natural, psychic self!

Exercise to enter into Meditation:

  • First, clear the energy of the room you are in with this breathing exercise:
  • Sit comfortably in your chair. Close your eyes.
  • Breathe in through your nostrils, 1, 2, 3, 4, breathe out through your mouth 1, 2, 3, 4. Let the energy of your day just sigh away.
  • You are breathing in through your nostrils, 1, 2, 3, 4, and breathing out through your mouth 1 2 3 4. Feel the hectic energy of all your busy-ness being released. All the pressures and any negativity that have come up today are being released, on each out breath, it all just blows away.
  • Breathe in, to the count of four, breathe out to the count of four.

As you are just relaxing, feel your body in your chair, your feet on the floor. You are very comfortable, very relaxed. Eyes closed, keep breathing, slowly, steadily. Breathe in, to the count of four, breathe out to the count of four.

And now, imagine a silver orb of light in the middle of the room, it is a clear ball, filled with glowing moonlight. Feel the ball getting bigger, bigger, even bigger. It is filling the room with beautiful moonlight. Feel the former energy of the room, all the energy of the busy-ness in the room being squeezed out, out to the outside, where it is pulled down into the ground and absorbed by the earth. And now, your room is filled with a pure, silver light, ready for you to begin your meditation.

Be still, be silent, and listen.

What does the Color of Your Aura Mean?

Aura colors can reveal aspects of someone’s personality that they may not know about. Different colors have different meanings, and even different shades of the same color can have very different implications.

How do you see an Aura?
There are people who can see Auras in their visual spectrum, but most of us will need to use a technique called Kirlian photography. Kirlian photography records electrographs by using high voltages to catch light patterns emitting from the body. These ligwhat-does-the-color-of-your-aura-meanht patterns will have a certain hue, which can be almost any color on the light spectrum. It is rare to have an aura with only one color. Most Auras will have a dominant color, with other hues as smaller accents or layers.

Clearing Blocks and Staying Balanced

We all go through days when everything feels gloomy and depressing. Even simply getting out of bed seems like the clearing-blocks-and-staying-balancedtoughest chore in the world. You might have thought you are just being lazy but the truth is that laziness itself is a symptom of accumulated negative energy.

We must, therefore, have rituals for regularly clearing negative energy from our aura and our lives. Here are a few ideas that you can incorporate into your life:

Daily Meditation or Prayer
The 45 minutes before you go to sleep and the 45 minutes after you wake up in the morning are the two most important phases of your day. They not only set the tone for how your day will pass but also for what the next day will be like. If you wake up and go to sleep with negativity in your mind, then your days are bound to be riddled with negative situations. It is, therefore, absolutely mandatory that you establish morning and bedtime rituals for yourself and try to stick to them through thick or thin.

Mornings: It is advisable to wake up early in order to give a perfect and peaceful start to your day. Freshen up and hydrate yourself by drinking water. Thereafter, do some kind of a spiritual practice that you truly enjoy. It could be anything from meditation to prayer, or chanting, or maybe, even writing down affirmations. In order to choose the right practice for yourself focus on how you feel about it. If it makes you happy and fills your heart with joy, then you have found the right practice for yourself. Also, give yourself time to enjoy a hearty breakfast. Don’t eat in a hurry, and definitely not on the run. Make your entire morning an exercise in tranquility and mindfulness. This will set the tone for the rest of the day and you will be more present in everything you do.

Bedtime routine: Try to stay away from all electronic gadgets as much as possible. Take the time to truly relax by doing something that feels good to you. I personally feel that there can’t be a more decadent bedtime ritual than the luxury of taking a nice warm bath with scented candles and soothing music in the background.

To end the day on an ideal note, do your spiritual practice again. Go to bed with gratitude in your heart, looking forward to the next day. Affirm to yourself that tomorrow will be another beautiful and magical day. You will be surprised by how your days will suddenly start becoming more magical and beautiful.

Special Rituals/Meditations for Clearing Blockages

Salt Water Bath
Salt is said to absorb negative energy. Adding salt to your bath water and then soaking in it for a while is one of the most effective methods for removing any negative energy from your aura.

You can also place regular salt or salt crystals in small bowls around your house to remove negative energy from your environment.

Forgiveness
Non-forgiveness is the root causes of all suffering. Let go of the past and embrace the possibility of tomorrow by fully forgiving everyone who you believe has wronged you. You must understand that forgiveness is not something you do for others. Instead, it is a gift you give yourself. By forgiving others, you are setting yourself free from the anger and toxicity that is holding your happiness hostage. You don’t even need to tell the other person that you have forgiven them – releasing them and the memory of their wrong actions from your subconscious is what truly matters.

Practice this affirmation every day: I forgive myself for everything, I love myself unconditionally. I forgive everyone whom I believe has wronged me, I love everyone unconditionally.

It will likely not be easy saying this affirmation to yourself at the beginning but you must persist. Keep saying it to yourself until it begins to start feeling like the truth. Notice what emotions are coming up but don’t get attached to them. Witness them like an observer. Soon all negative emotions will dissolve and become replaced by a profound sense of inner peace.

Love
Love is what makes the world go around. Believe it or not, the most important kind of love is self-love. You must love yourself unconditionally. Is that selfish? Think about this, how can you ever give something to anyone else if you don’t have it for yourself?

Also, self-love does not mean egoism – it means having a healthy relationship with yourself. It implies living with dignity and self-respect. Give yourself love by taking out time for yourself to enjoy the things you like doing. Take good care of yourself – nurture your mind and nourish your body with good books and great food. Embrace your beauty by keeping yourself well-groomed and nicely dressed at all times. Don’t wait for someone else to make you feel special, become the most special person in the world for yourself.

Mindfulness
If you’ll observe your thoughts carefully, you’ll start to realize that most of your worries and fears are not related to the present moment. More often than not, you are either embroiled in memories of the past or frozen with fear in anticipation of the future. Simply bringing yourself to the present moment will clear the negative energy that has accumulated in your consciousness. Of course, it will take practice to master the art of mindfulness. What matters is to become more observant of your thoughts and feelings with regards to the present moment. Don’t analyze what comes up, and definitely, don’t attach yourself to the memories and emotions it brings up.

As simple as these practices sound, following them religiously will completely transform your life. Miracles are created by a shift in consciousness. Once you change the reality in your mind, the world around you changes. Embrace yourself fully and let your senses drown in the sweet intoxication of unconditional love – your life will start to fully blossom with positivity.

Spiritual Guidance for Career Success and Abundance

spiritual-guidance-for-career-success-and-abundanceHave you ever wondered how a seed turns into a giant tree – was it hiding inside the seed all along? This can’t be true because when the seed is split open, there’s nothing to be found in it!

In reality, the giant tree emerges out of nothingness along with everything else in the finite world. There is a certain Divine intelligence at play here, and everywhere else, which ensures that an acorn seed turns only into an oak tree.

If everything in nature can fall into place through the Divine intelligence prevalent in it, won’t this work for our lives as well? We often hold on too tightly to our ideas of how everything must be. Every great religious and spiritual teachers have said that as long as we are doing the ‘right’ thing, the results will eventually follow. To do our part without any desire to gain a certain result from it is the only real way to be.

In fact, the harder we try to force a particular outcome, the fewer chances of success we have. This applies to every aspect of our life including career and money.

At the same time, this does not mean that we should stop having desires altogether as desires are the cornerstone of creation. You must have a clear and precise picture of exactly what you want in mind but you have to let go of control when it comes to how it will all come about. Have faith that as long as you truly desire something, the Universe will find a way to bring it to you.

Your job is to continue working hard towards your goals trusting that everything’s happening in Divine timing. Even if you can’t see the results of your efforts in physical reality at the current moment, you have to still continue your visualizing practices. Never forget that emotions are your power. When your visualizations are fueled by powerful positive emotions, success is guaranteed.

Therefore, you must continue to visualize the successful fulfillment of all your goals while feeling the positive emotions of happiness and contentment.

Affirmations
Affirmations are one of the most powerful tools of transformation. You can use affirmations to transform your subconscious, and subsequently, your inner-outer reality. Whatever you think about most is what you become – your life is a dynamic reflection of your most deeply held beliefs and ideas.

Practice the following affirmation every day. You can set aside a few minutes a day to focus completely on practicing your affirmation but you’ll start reaping the full benefits of this affirmation once you make it an essential part of your life and your belief system. Get in the habit of practicing it all the time no matter where you are and what you’re doing. I would also recommend saying it out aloud and recording it. You can set the affirmation to play by your bedside while you sleep so that it reaches into the depths of your subconscious. Here’s the affirmation:

“My career and my entire life are a huge success. I am enjoying all the abundance that I ever wanted. My heart is filled with happiness and gratitude. I am content to be living the life of my dreams.”

Is It My Imagination? (How to Trust the Messages You Receive)

is-it-my-imagination-how-to-trust-the-messages-you-receiveThe most common question people ask is if it’s all in their head. This is the ego’s way of distracting you from hearing the messages of your angels and the guidance of your Heavenly Father. Your intuition is your connection with the Divine – it is the channel through which the Universe speaks to you. Unfortunately, as we get older, and become more conditioned by society, we start losing our ability to connect with the Divine.

How to Connect with your Guides?

Just like the moon gets reflected in a clear lake when the waters are still, the Divine is reflected in our minds and our hearts when we are completely calm. You must develop a daily meditation practice in order to quiet the incessant noise of your mind. Also, whenever you get time, be sure to connect with your breath. Develop the habit of inhaling and exhaling deeply. This has an instant calming effect on the mind. As you become calmer, your mind starts becoming like an empty vessel ready to receive and hold the wisdom of the Divine.

Once you start feeling calm and centered, intend to become connected with your Guides. Ask to receive guidance or if you have a question in your mind seek to get it answered. You must trust that the only thing you need in order to connect with your guides is the intention to do so. The moment you set the intention to be connected, you get immediately connected. The ego will compel you to doubt this but you must not listen to the voice of the ego at its schemes and devices are meant to keep you trapped in a web of illusions.
To let God in, you have to let go of the ego.

Listen to Your Heart

Whenever you are in doubt, listen to what your heart says. The knowledge that your heart has is always far superior to anything that your mind can know. Logic can take you so far but intuition can create miracles.

If amidst the clamor of your mind, you can’t distinguish the voice of the mind from the voice of your heart, you need to take a few moments to breathe deeply. As you connect with your breath, ask your heart what it has to say about the situation or the person at hand. Listen to the first answer that comes out because that is often the right answer.

The Pineal Gland

Enlightened masters have known for centuries that the pineal gland is the seat of all wisdom. When the pineal gland is awakened, our intuitive abilities are at their peak. Unfortunately, in our modern times, most people’s pineal glands have become calcified. If you want to stay connected with the Divine and His angels, then you must make an effort to decalcify the pineal gland. This implies not using fluoridated toothpaste or water, avoiding all processed food and other eatables with food color and additives. You must also exercise daily, stay from alcohol and other narcotics. Ideally, you should also adopt the practice of yoga and pranayama.

Most importantly, listen to your heart even when your mind says not to. Never forget that the wisdom of the heart is far superior to the logic of the mind.
