“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” ~ Lao Tzu
As the new year comes closer, I feel its like a New dawn approaching rapidly. I feel that same level of excitement and happy butterflies inside my being, as I felt when I was waiting for my little girl to enter this world. I am not sure if its just me or not..but this coming year is feeling Pivotal in my heart. There is so much happening around the world that is making me feel like “yes! we do have a chance to make a positive and happy world.”
There is the BIG 2012 approaching us all. You and me both have a New chance to create history. How are you going to create history? What did you do in this past year that WILL be remembered?
Personally for me there were lots of amazing moments this past year. Here is a snapshot of what 2011 is leaving me with:
- My daughter went from Nursery to Junior K.G. and to Senior K.G. in such a short span!
- I helped, counseled and healed countless souls.
- Wrote literally millions of words and learned lessons that will last me a lifetime.
- I discovered that even in the most trying times, I was never alone. The Divine love was always with me, supporting me and making me stronger.
- Moved to the Big City of Mumbai, after literally 30 years of being away. The change was major, but am now able to silence the constant hustle bustle around me. Inside peace is all that matters.
- Have finally learned the art of calm in my thoughts, words and behavior. Which means I only speak where absolutely necessary, all other times I quietly pray. This for me is a major achievement…cause I have always been labelled ‘the chatterbox’ :)
Its not that there were no ‘low’ moments. Infact there were many, but the eternal optimist in me chooses to look and focus on the positive.

“It is for us to pray not for tasks equal to our powers, but for powers equal to our tasks, to go forward with a great desire forever beating at the door of our hearts as we travel toward our distant goal.” ~ Helen Keller
As I take a nostalgic look back at 2011, I dont have any regrets. I have had up and downs this past year, but each experience had made me learn a new life lesson. These experiences in turn have helped me understand myself and the world around me in a new light.
Positive Provocations 2010 Year end Free Counseling&Spiritual Healing Contest:
As you all know I offer counseling online via skype(paid), email and chat(free). I’m adding ‘spiritual healings’ to this too now. As I mentioned earlier there will be a new “healings” page that will have the details of how you can avail this service from me in future.
But, for now as my NEW YEAR Gift to YOU…I’m offering 2 free spiritual healing and counseling sessions for January 2012. This simply means 2 beautiful souls will receive these session absolutely free.
The counseling and spiritual healing sessions will help you to gain clarity in thoughts and actions while giving you the opportunity to share your deepest fears and issues with me. The sessions will be completely private and your thoughts will remain between the two of us only.
Counseling provides a safe space to explore your emotions and find new ways of looking at your life. In a confidential environment you can express your feelings without fear of judgment. This involves helping people explore their inner stuck places, such as that which motivates a particular behavior or thought, or how we come to believe what we believe, especially if that thought or belief produces unhappiness in us. Occasionally, we may feel a feeling that we don’t know how to cope with, or we possess a painful emotion that doesn’t seem to go away, no matter what we do.
Spiritual Healing is the restoration of wholeness or wellness to one’s experience. It is recognizing, accepting, and realizing the atmosphere of The Divine, or the perfect spiritual idea of being, in the individual. It removes the toxins of distorted self-acceptance that appear to have separated the person from wholeness.
The combined approach of counseling and spiritual healing helps you immensely in your current situation and also in healing past emotional wounds.

The best thing about the future is that it comes only one day at a time. ~Abraham Lincoln
