How Forgiveness Is Imperative To Deep Emotional Healing + 4 Healing Forgiveness Affirmations

“If we really want to love we must learn how to forgive.” ~ Mother Teresa

Forgiveness means that we choose to Love. Love MORE than we choose to hate or hurt.

Among all the ways of counseling I offer, I also offer family therapy to families to heal from issues that are eating away at their core happiness. In one such recent session, there was SO much negativity coming out of every member of the family, which was making the whole atmosphere very very tense. The key was ofcourse a past event that had triggered and hurt many of the members of the family. After gently proposing “forgiveness with love” of self and all those involved…and applying it, I could see the whole family calm down. But, forgiveness is a hard pill to swallow.

I often get asked, “But how can I forgive, when it hurts so much?” Continue reading “How Forgiveness Is Imperative To Deep Emotional Healing + 4 Healing Forgiveness Affirmations”

How to be Happy Right NOW! 15 Positive Tips

how to be happy right now“I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.” ~ Martha Washington

What is your definition of happiness? Do you think you need to be successful to be happy?

I am sure you’ve caught yourself a time or two saying things like, “I’ll be happy when I lose 5 kgs,” or “I’ll be happy when I find Mr./Mrs. Right,” or “I’ll be happy when I have my dream home,” or “I’ll be happy when my husband/wife changes his/her attitude.”

8 Positive Life Lessons from Gandhi ~ A Tribute to His indomitable spirit

“You must be the Change you want to see in the world.” ~ Gandhi

Today marks the 70th Death Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. It’s the day a simple man, with a simple mission passed into the spirit world. His mission was of Non-violence, of peace, of Unity in diversity. His utter simplicity brought about a revolution of magnanimous proportions. A country was freed, people were heard, caste systems were banished and most of all love and peace prevailed. On this day…and everyday, I applaud this mission. I applaud his spirit, his courage, his unwavering and self-less motives.

I believe, rather firmly believe in Non-violence in thoughts and actions. In no circumstance or situation or state is violence physical or mental acceptable. I condemn war and fighting. There is so much of it going on around us already, that we are just adding to the Universe’s Mental Pollution, by thinking violently too. Be it just muttering harsh words under our breath or holding grudges or holding hate in our hearts. We are sending out the wrong energy into this Universe.

“Greet everyone you meet with a warm smile. No matter how busy you are, don’t rush encounters with co-workers, family and friends.Speak softly. Listen attentively.Act as if every conversation you have is the most important thing on your mind today.Look your children and your partner in the eyes when they talk to you.Stroke the cat, caress the dog. Lavish love on every living being you meet. See how different you feel at the end of the day.” ~ Sarah Ban Breathnach (from ‘Simple Abundance : A Daybook of Comfort and Joy’) ~

We often think that someday we will settle old scores. Someday we will muster the courage to speak to that person. Someday we will go and have a chat with the quite lady at the end of the street. Someday we will ask for that raise we so badly deserve. Some day we will face our fears. Someday……… Continue reading “One Positive Promise for a Truly LOVING 2018”
