On my Birthday, I Choose to Unleash and Embrace my inner child

On my Birthday, I Choose to Unleash and Embrace my inner child“It’s never too late to have a happy childhood” ~ Z

As I enter a new year of my life, I choose to celebrate (Its my Birthday.YAY!).

I choose also to shed the 33 from the 37 and embrace the 4 year old IN me. Yippeee….

You see, very very early on in life I had no choice but to grow up. Literally no choice then. The circumstances needed that from me and I did the best I could being an adult in a child’s body. Hence, my childhood never came. The realization of that lost childhood came very late in my life..but it came.

Today though, I have another choice. I have the choice to embrace my inner child in me and LIVE in Magic. And that is exactly what I have been and will keep doing. My happy choice you see :) Continue reading

Don’t Wait To Heal ~ Positively Affirm Your Healing Today!

Don’t Wait To Heal ~ Positively Affirm Your Healing Today!“Think Positive healing thoughts. You are what you think you are.” Z~

Life has a way of throwing many curve balls in your path. My life has been no exception to those very unpleasant curve balls. From a broken heart, to a broken soul, to coming down a negative spiral….I’ve been everywhere. In those very very negative times, the few things that helped me heal were my faith in the Divine and my own self talk.

Although spirituality came to me at a very early age, its not until pretty late that I realized it wasn’t anyone or anything that’s hurting me…it was me all along! HOW? My own thinking was eating me alive. When I read and learnt about positive thinking and positive affirmations…I was already too muddled to realize the full benefits of this simple healing magic. It was while IN one of these trying times that I revisited my own thoughts and began putting my knowledge to good practical use. Within no time, I was OUT of my negative patterns and could see clearly. I was feeling alive again. Continue reading

10 Spiritual Quotes to Awaken Your Soul ~ Heal Your Soul {1}“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” ~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

While we go about our days catering to every physical need we have, we tend to forget that we are indeed spiritual beings inhabiting this beautiful Universe. As a result of this we, as a society have become materialistic and selfish. Our physical needs take precedence over our souls needs…thereby paving the way for loneliness, depression, lack of self worth, suicide and I cant even begin to mention the crimes that are committed as a result of it all.

Rumi’s words have been a source of solace to my soul for a very long time. I grew up listening to my wise and philosophical dad quote Rumi on many occasions and then when I did actually grow up, I began to slowly understand the depth of his words. To this day, his words, his philosophy on all things love and life hits home for the heart centred Sufi girl in me.
