Magic Morning!

Mornings are magical, aren't they?

You go to sleep and then BAM!

 A new day! New events!

New! New! New! It is the best self renewal plan ever! A fresh start, a new beginning, a chance to rock out better than ever...Added to it is that though it is renewal, it is a 'new' new.
You get the same day , only it is nothing similar to the days before. All that it holds is completely different. There are never two days exactly alike!
Life is an adventure all right!
And mornings signify the beginning of a brand new something. Every problem, every worry, every instant and thought from the past presents itself in a new light in the morning.
This magical practice, takes the magic in every morning and makes it more potent, extending it into and through the entire day.You begin by recognising the magic that has befallen you. And what better way to recognise the good things in life other than through gratitude?

You go about your daily business up until you are ready, filling up each and every action with gratitude until it is soaking wet with good feelings.
I usually extend the practice as far into the day as I possibly can. And each time I do it, another one of my mind numbing routines become an enthralling experience!
 For instance, this dorm I stay at only has cold water gushing out of the taps. Cold mornings and cold water? Brrrrrrr....Taking baths became a waking nightmare literally.

When I started this practice , I realised that the cold water wasn't making me cringe; it was my dread that made the experience awful. So I first started out saying 'Thank you' for the fresh water. It was then that it struck me: Cold water was like a cold breeze.

It awoke every fibre of my being and made me tingle with excitement all over. Which meant that  the routine I had been forced into was actually ensuring excitement and joy in my day by awakening me from deep within, making me alert to the wonder of the day!

                                                YAY FOR COLD WATER!

Rhonda Byrne says that when you saturate your mornings with gratitude, your day ahead will be filled with magic and every thing seems to go your way. I always feel that when I finish this practice, I am so so full of joy and love that I don't much care how things go in my day. Everything becomes a cause for joy! I go a bit crazy which is always the best way to have fun!
Day 12:
I am grateful for this amazing view from new room in my hostel because I feel like I live in a tree house in a lush forest!
I am grateful for the abundance of space inside my room because I can whirl, twirl and loose my head, dancing without any furniture to interrupt me!
I am grateful for the two weeks of holidays that are upon me because I feel so excited about it!
I am grateful for the smell of fresh morning air that fills me with the deepest sense of contentment and bliss!
I am grateful for the overload of musicians, singers and songs because there can never be too much music!
I am grateful for being able to alternate between pants and skirts because skirts mean great ventilation
and pants mean freedom to move about any way I like!

I am grateful for my short hair because all it needs is a  shake and swipe and I am good!

I am grateful for cotton clothes because they are so freakin' comfortable with their softness and feel blissful during warm days!
I am grateful for us having both long term and short term memory because long term means we get to remember the happy moments forever and short term means we can forget our troubles in an instant!

I am grateful for windows because when they are shut, Yay for privacy!
And when they are wide open, Yay for awesome scintillating wind!

Ventures into Love - Day 12

Here’s how life is supposed to work; how we are taught that the world works, how we are supposed to integrate into the mayhem: Dream big. Work for it. Be bold. Go for it NOW. Have a vision. Break the steps down into bite sized pieces and keep making progress every single day. I am actually feeling slightly breathless, just typing those words. The thing is, this kind of pushing and prodding, this complete reliance over one's willpower that stems from the brain and it’s storehouse of experiences filtered through beliefs that alter the experience to a nutshell of what really is, is frankly exhausting. Sure, when we face a particularly trying situation or we are subject to an enrapturing inspiring speech, we feel charged up and energetic. We feel like we have so much to offer, so much that we can do, so much energy to run all the way to the top, that we enthusiastically take steps, turn over new stones, meet people, network and feel euphoric. For some time, that is. Eventu

Ventures Into Love: Day 8

Sometimes, our traps are so simple. The keys to these traps can be right there and yet, we fail to see them. Until we do. And realise that there was no need for repairs from the outside. It was us the whole damn time.  For me, the last practice( playing the detective) was mind boggling because I am now discovering so many words that I use which don’t serve me in the very least. And the fun part is so fun: choosing a new thought along the lines of a belief that is better suited for me is so much better than shopping! Today’s activity goes into this very same practice with a more specific goal at heart; to identify and change a story you are telling. This might be any kind of a story – a story that explains and justifies why you are the way you are, or a story that makes it okay for you to not be happier, a story that you think is true of yourself a story you feel trapped by, a story of neglect, a story for lack of compassion – that you tell to yourself or to others. Basically,

It's okay.

It’s okay. It’s okay to try and not get it right. It’s okay to not even try in the first place. It’s okay to hold on real tight and you don’t want to let go even though you know it hurts.  It’s okay to love the wrong things. It’s okay to love the right things. It’s okay to be confused about life. It’s okay to feel proud of your saunter. It’s okay to hate your life too. It’s okay to want to change. It’s okay to want to stay exactly as you are. It’s okay to want to leave. Its okay to never want to leave. It’s okay to feel annoyed. It’s okay to feel happy doing nothing. It’s okay to want to do something. It’s okay to want help. It’s okay to not want to take help. It’s okay to be selfish. It’s okay to be selfless. It’s okay to love with abandon. It’s okay to not want to love with abandon. It’s okay to be afraid of the dark. It’s okay to like being in the dark too. It’s okay to be afraid of facing the light. It’s okay if you can’t find the light. It’s okay if you wan
