🌟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. 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
