5 Positive Promises for a Truly Happy 2020

“I feel keeping a promise to yourself is a direct reflection of the love you have for yourself. I used to make promises to myself and find them easy to break. Today, I love myself enough to not only make a promise to myself, but I love myself enough to keep that promise” ~ Steve Maraboli

As 2020 inches closer and closer, we all get into the introspecting mode. We will think about the year ending in terms of achievements, high points, low points, successes, failures, learning points etc. Introspection and a constant need to be a better more evolved human(e) being makes us think of the year that’s gone by in a learning light.

I have definitely learnt a whole LOT this past year. And to be honest, this has been a hard year for me in many aspects: emotionally draining, physically challenging etc. One of the major reasons I can look at the year gone by in a positive light, is because I have managed to keep the positive promises to myself from last year. These positive promises to myself help me stay on track. They help me to balance myself, no matter how hard things get throughout the year.

5 Gratitude Practices to Raise Your Vibration PLUS 50 Inspiring Gratitude Quotes

“May the gratitude in my heart kiss all the universe.” ~ Hafiz

Gratitude can mean many things to many people, but in its simplistic essence it means “being thankful”. It’s developing the attitude of gratitude for everything in our life. Big or small. Good or bad.

All great spiritual masters, thought leaders, successful entrepreneur etc. have emphasised the need to live in gratitude for true success. For when we can’t appreciate what we have, how can we appriciate what is going to come to us. We will be too blinded by the negativity, to even notice a blessing/opportunity, even if its right under our nose.

While we all understand this meaning of gratitude, do we really imbibe it in our life?

I personally believe in the power of gratitude and more so in the power of having a daily gratitude practice. The first step in healing all past pain and trauma begins with gratitude. Vibrationally, as we are all energy beings, Love & Gratitude top the list of emotions that have the highest vibration. There has been research done by the likes of Louise Hay, Dr. Joe Dispenza, Dr. Bruce Lipton, Deepak Chopra etc. on the targetted benefits of practicing gratitude daily on mind-body-soul.

5 Beautiful Ways to Embrace Your True Self

“Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are, what you believe shine through every sentence you write, every piece you finish.” ~ John Jakes

Being yourself isnt a choice. Its a way of life. Period.

Being you is not always the easiest thing to be. Believe me I have had a hard time in the past just being me until I found out who I was.

Embracing your true self means to celebrate your individuality – learning to express yourself and be happy with who you are. For some it’s learning to love yourself, for others, it’s not hiding who you are or changing things about you to fit in. I fall in both those categories. And its amazing how everyday I learn something new about myself and strive to unleash it to the world…all because I am ready to do the inner work to be authentically ME.

Understanding Our Reflections

“We live in a house of mirrors and think we are looking out the windows.”~ Fritz Perls

Who are you looking at? Who is looking back at you? Who are you looking for?

The Greek Philosopher Socrates often referred to the pursuit of knowing thyself as the most important part of living. He also declared in many of his writings, that an un-examined life is not a life worth living.

On some level or another, all of us are seeking ourselves whether we realize it or not.

We all have beliefs, ideas, thoughts and attitudes which govern our thinking, our knowing and our living. Changing our thinking, our long held beliefs can dramatically change our daily lives.

7 Simple Steps to Setting Positive Intentions

“We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aid, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn.” ~Henry David Thoreau

An intention is the starting point of everything. Every creation, every idea, every big book, every big movie, every invention, every part of your life…begins with an intention.

If I want to take a walk or read a book or meditate it begins with an intention. All things in the Universe begin with an intention. And intentions are portals to infinite possibilities.
