All life is an experiment – Ralp Waldo Emerson

“Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions.

All life is an experiment.

The more experiments you make the better.

What if they are a little coarse and you may get your coat soiled or torn?

What if you do fail, and get fairly rolled in the dirt once or twice?

Up again, you shall never be so afraid of a tumble”

Intuition

 (Taken from the book: Power, Freedom and Grace by Deepak Chopra)

I love the way Deepak Chopra describes the meaning of Intuition in his book Power, Freedom and Grace.

He says that intuition is not a thought. It is a non-local cosmic field of information that whispers to you in the silence between your thoughts. Listen to the inner intelligence of your body. It is the ultimate and supreme genius.

You are accessing information from the universe when you listen to your intuition.

Intuition is the heightened sense of awareness that comes from familiarity with the information fields in your own body. This information is encoded holographically in every cell of your body.

Access this information and you will become more intuitive.

Meditation

I am a very busy person and find it hard to meditate. I know it has many good benefits for me. but the moment I start meditating all sorts of unnecessary stuff enters my mind diverting me from my meditation routine. I cannot become still for long enough.

My new year’s resolution is to try and meditate if only for 5 minutes at a time, then longer, and even longer until I can reach my goal of about 1 hour. To meditate is good for our body and soul and here are some benefits:

  • it improves our physical and emotional health
  • it helps lower our blood pressure
  • we have greater resistance to disease
  • we are less stressful to challenging situations
  • we have better work performance
  • we have greater self-esteem
  • we have more nourishing relationships

Let us all try and make meditation part of our daily routine, like eating and sleeping. I am going to try my best.

Namaste.

Conscious Awareness

When you have a conscious awareness of your soul, you experience everything as a miracle.

You feel happy.

Your life begins to transform.

You see the connection between your inner world and your outer world.

Every event in your life is being orchestrated by the entire Universe.

I Am, I Exist

The Universe is thinking

It’s creative,

It imagines

I am creative because the Universe is creative

I am conscious because the Universe is conscious

I think because the Universe thinks

I Am, I Exist.

Forgiveness

Definition of forgiveness

It is letting go of judgment, resentment, or a claim against another. It is an abundant act.

What is the purpose of forgiveness?

It is unconditional love that absolves negative Karma and frees us and others.

Some behaviours and attitudes that are governed by the EGO and stops us in forgiving others:

Behaviours

  • Holding judgment or anger toward another
  • Inability to forgive yourself
  • Blaming others and holding grudges

Attitudes

  • Belief that if you forgive, you may lose control over others
  • Desire to discredit, censure, accuse, or indict another
  • Belief that if you forgive, you were wrong
  • You have feelings of fear, anger and resentment

We can use some of the following techniques to align us with our Higher Self and to help us to forgive others:

  • Breathe deeply, relax, and let the feeling go
  • Allow the God force energy to flow through you
  • Practise unconditional love
  • Do not take another person’s words or actions personally
  • Remain calm and balanced at all times.

Affirmations can also help us to practise forgiveness towards others:

  1. I forgive myself for…….
  2. I forgive ……. for …..
  3. I release all negative and limiting beliefs.

Faith

(Taken from the book : The Light Shall Set you Free by Dr. Norma Milanovich & Dr. Shirley McCune)

What is Faith?

Faith is the trust and conviction in a belief for which there is no proof.

What is the Purpose of Faith?

Faith is the Confidence in the Universal Laws and the Divine harmony of the universe.

To live happy and fulfilled live we need to build up our faith daily. But then our ego gets in the way and become so very powerful that it can prevent us from reaching our goals.

Some examples of where our ego intervenes are:

  • Our need to control everything around us. Things can happens in your life that you have no control over and learning to have faith that things will get better or not bad, will make you a better, relaxing person.
  • Materialism is another big problem that can wreck our lives.

We do not trust that the universe will provide for us, instead we gather as much money, food, clothes as we can.

Believe and trust in the Universe that you will have enough.

Then there are also egotistical attitudes that can work against our faith:

  • You let your ego be in charge instead of your spirit.
  • You fear and you dislike of what you receive. You are not happy with what is given to you and you want more, better.
  • You belief that you are unworthy.
  • You have feelings of scepticism.
  • You doubt everything and everyone.
  • You are in denial.
  • You show feelings of distrust.
  • You are suspicious of people around you. You cannot and do not want to just trust people.
  • You question people’s goodwill.
  • You feel rejected. You cannot open to people around you. You feel unloved because others do not give you the love and attention at a specific moment you want it.
  • You have a general sense of fear – fear that you will fail, fear to love and not get love in return, and fear of the unknown.

There are techniques where we can align with our Higher Self to build up our faith – here are some examples:

  • You need to overcome your fears and suspicions and the way to do this is to anchor the Light within yourself on a daily basis.
  • Mediation can also help you attain faith in yourself and others.
  • You need to recognize that there is a purpose in all things.

Affirmations can help us to build up our faith. Here are two that you may try, but there are many more – look them up and find one that will suit you.

  1. Let God’s will be done through me.
  • I trust in God to show me the way.
