Develop Every Day Courage

Take courage to speak, listen, take action

“Courage is the power of mind to overcome fear” – Martin King Luther

Most of us are in our daily grind, it could be to deal with our work situations, our relationships, our surroundings. And while we juggle with different things at the same time we get drained and loose the confidence of finding our space of being courageous and visualize ourselves where we want ourselves to be.

It becomes important to build the mind body connection to maximize your energies and build courage. Pay attention to your physical and emotional sensations to be more aware of both your pleasant and unpleasant feelings, so that you can take actions that will best work for you. Remain to the openness that we don’t know all the answers and taking time to grow through our everyday learning that brings courage,

Evaluate your emotions, notice your wandering mind to focus, your thoughts that are non judgmental, kind and brings awareness of being courageous and overcoming blocks of hindrances. If you are more aware of what is going on physically, emotionally and in your surrounding you can be more courageous and thoughtful to take the steps that are more attuned to your requirements.

Your brain is how you want to train it to be, so don’t being that negativity that shuts you down. Develop the authentic yourself to express with the right intention and courage. Be courageous to be who you are and vision your life bigger than where you are. You find more courage as you abandon your fears of not overcoming them. Fear is nothing but your own thoughts that put you down. So put your heart fully to take actions that will reap pleasure.

Visualize yourself repeatedly of being brave and successfully carrying out a task with confidence. Your subconscious mind will start think courageously and take instructions as you visualize. Have positive images in your mind of yourself acting with competence and courage.

Be courageous !!!!

Bond with your soul and innerself through nature

 

HELLO 🙂 I am back here after a gap that has been unavoidable.*Before I continue, I want to thank all my readers who have mentioned to me that they read what I post and have been missing my writings lately. YES ! I am trying my best to get back and and stay connected with you through SHARING MY EXPERIENCES and THOUGHTS.

In one of my earlier posts I had mentioned nature is whimsical and magical bringing joy that may seem small but is in fact its BIG ! Yesterday I got the opportunity to encounter nature while on a picnic to Bakers  Park, Calgary and  small bunch of us friends ventured to hike and explore the woods and the surroundings.

When you step in the domain of nature every site is a joy, that brings lot of peace.

The connection is deep with your inner well being and you relax with a clarity of mind and soul that is relaxed and calm.

You smile at…. The trees, flowers, leaves, flowers, fallen twigs, any fruit or dragonfly , butterfly that you see and these smile back at you.

The surroundings are pure and the silence in the woods opens your mind and soul.

Once you truly discover nature’s beauty, it is a place where you would want to spend more time, solely connected with your inner self deep within that is so peaceful and positive. 

I definitely feel REJUVENATED 🙂 and RADIATING 🙂

Will be back again and don’t forget to leave a comment 😀

Love !

Raman

Power of Nature

IMG_5363

Yesterday evening, as I lay down still on my bed with my very sore body, I happened to move my head towards the large window of my room. There was sudden joy to see the open skies as the sun set. The shades of yellow and orange brushed across the canvas of sky.

There was something around me that was so joyful and positive. I took no time to hold my cell lying by my side to capture the view that enchanted my feelings and was magical. The next few minutes were spent admiring the sun rays that were sharp to make the nature so beautiful. I completely forgot my pain and I strongly feel it is the mind set we can change.

I am glad nature is so whimsical that can bring the positive energy within you, it can evoke your inner wellbeing that every human being is worth of. We all need to understand the power of nature. It brings the little joys that are in fact big. As you get closer to nature there is bonding of inner you and the peace you can find yourself in.

Love

Raman 😊

We cultivate happiness by dusting away the negative actions and thoughts.

By finding the gifts of non materialistic joys, there is nesting of comfort of happiness. 

When you genuinely cultivate happiness you will feel liberated and light hearted.

There is inner abundance within you and you are a spreader of love.

People whom you meet for the first time usually get captivated by the charisma you carry by your positive vibes.

There is overall sweetness that will reflect where ever you may be.

We have the power to diffuse anger that may come up unexpectedly .

You will genuinely create happiness for others.

Building compassion and mindfulness in our daily situations builds a cradle of happiness.

There is a larger sense of honesty and kindness you approve of .

Bliss !

IMG_7063Never had I thought,

I would fall to your love ❤️,

Wrapped in true colours,

With colours and brushes 💃🏻 dancing,

That form the spirited 🌈 rainbow,

On the canvas of life,

I don’t care for the worldly tantrums,

I am already in a sweet bliss,

On heavenly peace flying high,

Riding a chariot that my heart desires.

I want to take odds with a smile

IMG_2210It has been almost two months now that I had met with an accident and I am writing this blog to bring awareness how hard can be for someone who goes through all the confusion and pain getting to know the symptoms while dealing with post concussion syndrome (PCS) and support that is much required. A person with PCS may show little signs of illness physically but it is more mentally that only a patient can describe. The day I am without tears I will know, I have fully accepted my unusual lifestyle until complete recovery. I also want to express gratitude to my family; friends who have shown kindness and support; my workplace for accepting my absence in the past days; my doctor Dr Muninder Lotay for his constant assessment and cheerful dialogue while I am still recovering. I remember saying I am thankful to All mighty for giving me a second life and I wished to do more for the community around.  I had heard my friend telling me that I had to keep watch on my symptoms and discuss with my doctor.

IMG_4694 Being a work freak, I want to take my work responsibly (Picture taken two days before writing the blog)

Especially for anyone who leads an active lifestyle it can be mentally daunting and frustrating. My doctor explained how a speeding car if needs a repair, will take some time to be in its usual speed. My friend Meena, to whom I talked the other day motivated me and said GOD in our lives gives us stop signs so that we could rest. And I had to ACCEPT it for a while until I recovered completely. My husband comforted me while being away, to keep myself strong and my sister reminded me that I had take health as my first priority. Which meant no running/ exercising/ multitasking/ Long distance driving/ talking on extended lengths/ attending social events on routine basis. Instead spending more time relaxing, meditating and painting.

My first week IMG_0205In my first week I had no idea how my coming days would look like. My body was cramped and most of the time was spent in sleeping and under the influence of medicines which I later decided to discontinue; there was a visit to a car rental, impound site where my badly damaged vehicle was. Being a strong woman I had decided to carry on my duties as scheduled and go ahead in the upcoming events in which I was participating. Little did I realize if I was having dizziness and  if I was making mistakes in my memory, what that really meant ?

I was delivering my work and pushed myself against the odds of dizziness and headaches. Finally after two weeks the symptoms seemed unbearable and I thought of discussing with my doctor. Standing for five minutes or even doing a simple task to broom the floor became impossible. My doctor thoroughly assessed me and advised me complete rest for the next two weeks. Most of time was spent sleeping, closing my eyes that immediately lead me to a nap mode. I was lethargic to my surprise and I could clearly see my senses very slow. Never had I known what lying on a couch is, as I had always been active, every time doing something meaningful. I thought to my self this is not me lying on the couch through out the day and would be in tears. As advised by my doctor I had started to take things easy without multitasking that helped me and gave rest to my brain. No way was I inclined to talking on phone or messaging as that meant draining my mental energy, I spent lot of time in hot tub with Epsom salts and aromatherapy.

     IMG_2667  IMG_3431 IMG_3294

I felt lethargic, I wanted to make myself good.  I had read people who go through concussion syndrome can get into depression. I even got a new haircut 😊

IMG_3161I did some crazy things to keep myself happy and thinking that complete rest was the end of it and I was heading to complete recovery. Spend some time during the day doing a painting and named the series “Therapeutic Collection”

With complete rest of two weeks I was quite happy the way things were going, still unaware what I will be facing emotionally in the coming days. I started to work 3-4 hours in a day against my doctors suggestion of working only for 2 hours. I expressed to my doctor that I wished to try working for at least 3 hours. To my dismay it did not work. The dizziness continued with headaches and numbness with sleepless nights. It resulted in aggravation of my symptoms. I think it was hard for me to accept that I could not multitask and it was frustrating.

On a regular follow up with my doctor, he has referred me to a rehab brain program. And I will blog more about my experience as I continue to recover. I will continue to follow what my doctor advises and take things with a smile.

Life is beautiful and we should be overcoming the challenges with ACCEPTANCE

How Are You Investing Your Energy?

IMG_8206   IMG_3757
(At Food Bank)               (Close to nature)
In 2000 my mom had introduced me to a Reikhi Master, from whom she would go for a treatment. Later we both learned the art of Rekhi practice from that expert Master seeing its importance. During the lessons, it was interesting to get educated how energies work in human beings.

The aura of human beings is directly proportional to the health of an individual. I have been quiet convinced by this fact, witnising health of individuals changing when these energies are balanced. I dug into my notes and recalled our our body is surrounded by five layers/levels.

To experience harmony, balance & well being in every aspect of physical life it is important that all the layers of vibrating energy contribute to our existence function together as an integrated whole. All these levels have vibrations and form the vibes that you emit to the surroundings.

Unfortunately we invest our energies at the wrong places by not making good choices and not realizing we are draining ourselves. We drain our energies when we develop the negative feelings and emotions toward our surroundings in our thoughts and actions. Every single thought negative or positive makes you a person as a whole.

So it is important we invest our energies into kindness, gratitude, love, appreciation, meditating. It may seem complex but can be attained by simple day to day positive actions. Once we develop the attitude of using these energies in the right direction we get a great sense of inner well being. 

So hang on to investigate your energies that will be meaningful for your well being 🙂

Love

Raman

What a simple smile can do !

IMG_6713

A simple smile is a symbol of warmth and kindness.  It is a non verbal communication and can lighten up many hearts. It can lighten up your mood and others heart. Smiling reflects your inner wellness and happiness. It is sad when people try to give the rigid looks by not smiling. When I see people lack of smile I feel, they highly lack the appreciation for others and want also to represent themselves as non friendly. 

It is often said “SMILE IS CONTAGIOUS, YOU GIVE TO THE WORLD AND WORD WILL GIVE IT BACK TO YOU”

Smiling brings out the positive emotions. Many years back I remember someone mentioning you smile without any reason which I felt was not a compliment and this did not stop me to smile. I am glad the other day my colleague Lesley mentioned that her husband mentioned me by saying – She is always smiling and Lesley with a gracious smile asked me to take it as a compliment :-).  

When we smile our smiling muscles contract that send a response to our brain and hormone serotonin are released which in turn brings us joy. Communication becomes easier when you can smile in a genuine way. But off course we have to be mindful of situations when we are smiling.

A smile can brighten up your day or someone else’s day so don’t forget to smile.

Here are few lines about smile that I wrote few months ago:

I want to wake up with a smile

Smile that will make me do better than yesterday,

Smile that will remind me of the little blessings,

Smile that will remind me of hope,

Smile that gives me strength,

Smile that spreads the message of love,

Smile that knocks down negative emotions,

Smile that speaks volumes of fresh beginnings.

So keep smiling !! JUST DO IT !! And don’t forget to like here 🙂

Welcome a new year with right intentions

image

Intentions are directly proportional to your desires in various walks of your life- it could be relationships, money or peace you are looking for. You make your intentions by connecting to your consciousness. Your intentions will lead to your actions and your actions will lead to the life you lead and your destiny. 

It is important to step into the silence through pause or silence in our busy schedules. When you pause you can hear the consciousness that is pure, there is no rattling sound but it is only you and you make the intentions.

When you make intentions remember they sometimes can be short lived and you again work on them. If you want a clutter free home, you may clean it but again you have to revisit after few days to see it is clutter free. You keep moving with bringing in the negative forces of anger and frustration.

Stay away from peoples criticism and negative feedback. We live in a society where we come across the negativity or criticism, it could be at workplace, in the community or at home. Don’t allow this criticism to lower your intentions. Don’t build self doubts instead listen to your inner guts.

You build your good intentions and let the opportunities come your way that you can act upon. Opportunities may take time to arise but you have to remain focused and loose your faith through negative forces of anger and frustration.

Hope this helps 🙂  Leave a comment or like please 🙂

Love
