🌟Make All your Wishes Come True🌟

Dreams , oh so many dreams! Wishes and hopes and excitement over the unknown that would somehow end up giving me my heart's deepest desires!

This encompasses pretty much all of the feelings of childhood for me. I could not wait to grow up so that my dreams could come true.

But as I grew up, I heard a lot of' ' success is not easy", 'you have to work hard to get the fruit' and lots of other despairing stuff.

In this sea of gloom, " The Magic" book's claim to show me how to have it all effortlessly was the lighthouse, the beacon of light I needed.

This practice has me listing all of my dreams, anything and everything I wanted. I was ecstatic about it! I made huge lists , so many times, so silly at times I laugh every time I read it.
I have to then take ten things I want most out of the list and make my " TOP TEN DESIRES LIST" writing things down in the present tense. Then, I have to visualise , actually having it and feeling all that I would feel once I had it all and thank the Universe for giving it to me.

Rhonda urges one to be as specific as possible. I used to think that she meant ' physical' specific; as in, " I want a red coloured teapot with polka dots and an elephant trunk spout in my new craftsman style manor house with a chrome and glass furnished kitchen".

This usually had me writing stuff like,
" Thank you Thank you Thank you for the perfect weight of 58 kg and perfect height of 5 ft 10'. "
I even added my ideal waist hip measurements sometimes!
Which would not have been a problem had I found any emotional connect with it. When I visualized the end result, I had a pretty hard time just getting to the picture. After that, I used to wait and wait for some feeling to strike me, maybe of joy or excitement.

But nothing would come. I would strain a bit with it and wring out a little bit of emotion and try with all my might to be thankful for something I would start to doubt whether I actually wanted.  In fact, it even lead me to believe that the reason why I did not feel any attachment to the end result was because I already had what I needed. But the feelings about the present condition were also crystal clear: not what I wanted. It was like a volleyball game for sometime, going back and forth and even getting off the field completely and seeing stuff under new lights.

The details I could specify were only what my experiences allowed: In other words, I was trapped within a few possibilities when I tried to make my dreams detailed. What would happen if I saw a green teapot? Would I want that instead?

It wasn't until I started receiving daily emails from the Universe that I realised that what I was after was not on the outside. It was an inside job I wanted to get done.
Yes, I wanted stuff related to my perfect body but I was not getting the details right. It was the daily emails from TUT that made me realize that I would probably never get the details right.After all, they are products of our present situation. If I am sad and the wall is painted in red, I'd think that in my happy place, the walls have to be yellow.
Details were, I realised, impossible to pin down. I had confused my dreams with the details, misleading myself into believing that the details WERE my dreams. NOT ANYMORE!!!! My new list makes me feel unbelievably good! The end results do not have a solid image, no specific words, no specific colours. They are open to change. They are free and happy!
The flavor of them all, is unmistakably bliss. Magnificence. Empowerment. Endless joy and content. It is exactly what I wanted. What IS it? I do not know what it is in terms of the physical but it is great and awesome and cool and hip and all the good things I want in my life. This list that is vague in terms of pictures and words feels more specific than anything else I've ever felt.

My top ten desires list!

Day 13:
I am grateful for the apple bread and banana bread I made  that came out so fluffy and beautiful and both my mom and sis enjoyed it so much!( they were fighting for the last pieces! HEE HEE!)

I am grateful for getting to fool around in the kitchen every day because I love my new inventions and I love the meditative state I go into as I chop, stir and sauté!

I am grateful for white sheets, empty spaces and surfaces that has so much potential for creativity!
I am grateful for the space underneath the four legs of beds and tables because it allows for stashing boxes that you might otherwise hit with your little toe.
I am grateful for the trees and plants swaying back and forth on a breezy day because it looks like they are dancing to music exclusive to their world which just feels surreal!
I am grateful for karaoke because I get to sing my heart out and feel all awesome and high!

I am grateful for the smell of the earth after it starts to rain because it invokes one of the most magical feelings in me, transporting me through all those incredible moments in life!
I am grateful for playgrounds and for me having gotten to mess about so much in these little pockets of wonder all through my childhood because I got to swing myself up ,to the castle in the clouds, slide down vines in the Amazons and pin criminals down on muddy dangerous terrains!
I am grateful for stereos in cars because they make trips to places we want to go to ( which is a pretty great gift as it is) really really fun!
I am grateful for cupboards and closets because I can just stuff everything in and lo and behold! a spick and span room!

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.
Eventually, we re…

Ventures Into Love : Day 17

You know that awesome tingly 'I have so got this! Things are going to rock from here on!' feeling that blossoms in your gut when you take up something new, start out on a new journey and the likes?

For example, the first day of a new exercise routine, or the beginning of a new hobby… the beginning of a new job, the first great conversation with a nice person we really like, the start of a new self – help book…
Any beginning by choice and passion is a cause for joy and I think I speak for everyone when I say that.
Have you also noticed how that this feeling is confined to the beginning only, in many scenarios in life?
I'll go with an example from my own life..
Whenever I read an awesome saucy 'self help' book, I feel psyched out and buzz – filled! I write down my dreams and I take the steps happily, genuinely excited about the changes I am helping bring about…
Then comes the second stage… that stage where the previously lovely ideas and wishes and hopes start feeli…

Ventures Into Love: Day 14

When I am in my room, I find it so easy to focus on the truth of me; how loved I am, that love is all there is, I am powerful beyond imagination… the works.

 But when I am in a crowd, in class, standing in line, waiting with a group of people, I find it so hard to focus. Impossible even.

All those affirmations, beliefs and practices go right out of the window, in such situations and I am left wondering about the usefulness of  enlightenment, if it doesn’t aid you in moments of need.

I think I am not alone in this. We have all been in situations where the group's energy and currents have engulfed us completely, beyond the scope of clarity.

When we are in a group, fully aware of our body and the surrounding physical world, we begin relying on our mortal strength and knowingness.
In other words, the ego takes charge.
We can’t help but let it take charge, because it is the only way we can see in the moment to get out of the suffering. And the endless narrations and suggestions begin,…
