3 Soulful Ways To Overcoming Unnecessary Wants

“Stop chasing what your mind wants and you’ll get what your soul needs.”

When my daughter was 4 years old, she loved ice cream. She still does. One night when she was 4, on a very cold rainy night, she kept pulling me to the fridge to ask me for ice cream. Now there is nothing wrong with ice cream, is there? But at 11 p.m. (well past bedtime) on a cold rainy night, it is potentially disastrous. Now we grown ups know that, but for a child its still the best thing in the world and not getting what she wanted at the time made her cranky and irritable. I tried hard to distract her attention from it, but all in vain. I actually had to drag her to bed…and even then she kept at it. She couldn’t stop giving me logical reasons for why ice cream was so necessary for her at that hour. Finally after much ado she did fall asleep. What she needed was to go to sleep, but what she wanted was ice cream! Continue reading “3 Soulful Ways To Overcoming Unnecessary Wants”

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?”

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.
