Simple Reminders

Tags

Zen Deck by Daniel Levin

The mind is a clever thing it gently nudges us back to the past and we dwell in the experiencs. Or it pushes us headlong into the future, thinking about what we will do when something happens and then what if someone does something and we find ourselves in the midst of unease. That’s when a simple reminder by the Zen cards jolts us out of our time travel into this very moment. The right here, right now which is perfect and peaceful. And we learn to appreciate the present is a culmination of the past and the launch pad for the future. What we do, feel, think, say right now is all that matters, all there is.

The Story about Greed

Image from analyticsmagindia.com

There was this greedy CEO of a major Corporation who received a huge salary and bonuses based on how much the Corporation made in profit that year; the more the Corporation made, the bigger his bonus. Over the past years he did all he could to maximize profit, increase his bonus. He started paying workers lower wages while laying off many of the longtime employees; he closed local plants while opening plants in other countries where he could pay workers even less; he cut the quality of the product while increasing productivity requirements on those who were left; he used every tax loophole he could to save money while moving profits overseas and hiding assets. He thought to himself, ‘If I only had more money, I could do so many things I have always wanted to do; I’d be so much happier If I only had more. How can I increase the profits to the Corporation so I can make a huge bonus at the end of this year?’ After spending all day, into the evening, thinking of ways, it hit him – Inversion. He would re-incorporate the company overseas in order to cut the tax burden on Corporate profits. This would allow the Corporation to save hundreds of millions in tax liabilities and pad his pocket with a multi-million-dollar bonus, and the Stockholders would be happy with a large dividend; everyone would be happy, except the workers.’ He looked into the mirror and smiled, ‘I will have so much more money and live the life I always wanted without all this pressure.’ He was excited, because he would finally live a better life.”

“It was late, and he was tired. Before going to bed he emailed several people to get the ball rolling. As he started to fall asleep he heard the voice of the Divine, ‘You’re such a jerk, tonight is your last night on earth. Now, ask yourself who will get that fat bonus check?’

This is what happens when you live your life for greed; you’re always pushing for more things, thinking things will make happy. But all it does is make you miss out on living, on helping others. You keep saying to yourself, ‘Only if I just had a little more I would be happier.’ Never once realizing that a simple life is better. When you fill your life with things, you have no room for the Divine. Dump the things and make room for the Divine.”

Based on Luke 12:13-

The Ajai Alai Mantra was written in the 17th century by the great Sikh Warrior saint Guru Gobind Singh in Gurmukhi, who taught self-worth and grace in times of difficulty or negativity with his words of praise.  The Ajai Alai is a part of the Jaap Sahib daily prayer and is believed to usher in pure positive energy into our hearts and to this planet.  It shifts your own vibration by bringing you into alignment with the qualities of the Creator. This version has been chanted by Mirabai Ceiba a duo consisting of guitarist/singer Markus Sieber and singer/harpist/keyboardist Angelika Baumbach.

Ajai Alai Mantra by Saint Guru Gobind Singh

Ajai Alai – Invincible. Indestructible
Abhai Abai – Fearless. Unchanging
Abhoo Ajoo – Unformed. Unborn
Anaas Akaas – Imperishable. Etheric
Aganj Abhanj – Unbreakable. Impenetrable
Alakkh Abhakkh – Unseen. Unaffected
Akaal Dy-aal – Undying. Merciful
Alaykh Abhaykh – Indescribable. Uncostumed
Anaam Akaam – Nameless. Desireless
Agaah Adhaah – Unfathomable. Incorruptible
Anaa-thay Pramaa-thay – Unmastered. Destroyer

Akarmang Abharmang – Beyond karma. Beyond doubt
Aganjay Alaykhay – Unconquerable. Indescribable

Do you have Boss Karma?

Tags

, ,

Like energies, Tarot readings also go through phases. In the past month or so, the majority of my sessions have had to do with workplace issues, namely bosses.

Here are a few examples :

“I have no problems with my spouse or my friends. But the minute I walk into work I feel uneasy with my boss. Why has this happened throughout my career? “

“She’s so uncommunicative with me, will keep all matters secret until the last minute and I end up staying back late and confused with her hurried instructions. I cannot perform. How do I deal with a Boss like her?”

“He puts me down in front of my team in meetings. It is humiliating and frustrating to work under his supervision. What can I expect if I quit this company?”

“Why have I always had insecure immediate bosses who never let me grow throughout my career?”

“I love my job but I cannot work with my Boss. He micromanages my whole life? How can I find peace and balance?”

Throughout our careers we will work with a variety of people. And like all relationships, there will be harmonious ones, and some that are downright unpleasant, uncomfortable and the reason for quitting. Most of the times it’s an issue with the Boss, either an immediate superior or the level above. Someone with whom the interaction is more frequent and uncomfortable, demotivating, unpleasant or draining. In such cases the chances of a karmic connection are revealed in a session, along with the suggestions on how to deal with the situation.

With each case being unique, with each lesson differing from soul to soul, the levels of Karma differ. Some may have an extremely stressful relationship with one particular boss and then move on to a place of harmony either with the superior or with other bosses. Where some may face difficult bosses in all their jobs throughout their career. What could be the lesson?

I would also like to add, that not all boss karma is tough or stressful. Some may have been blessed with true leaders as Bosses and have shared a mutually enriching relationship. The karmic lesson would then be to carry the blessing forward, knowing how to treat others when you become a Boss.

Situations will always vary, but like all relationships there will always be a lesson to learn and to grow from. Be it from a good boss or a challenging one.

The Energy you Send Will Return 3x.

Tags

, ,

Today I heard about the passing of an old Cherokee medicine woman who I met way back in 2001. Probably one of the wisest people I’ve ever met. I consulted her when I had quit the corporate world and my last boss disclosed to me that he had stolen my personal file from my desk to hinder my future job search. While I was relieved to know what happened to that file, I was also angry and deeply disappointed by his petty act. I knew I wanted to be self employed but I couldn’t shake off the anger I felt for him. I will never forget her words of wisdom.

Do not curse those who curse you, belittle you, or harm you. Bless them. For what you send out will return three times over back to you. And the negativity they send out will return three times over back to them”

It took months of inner work. Whenever I felt hurt by his act of jealousy and sabotage I worked hard to not send him negativity, which was easier and oh so tempting. I sent him good wishes and surrendered to the laws of karma.

Looking back I realised the importance of her words. As individuals we can not please everyone. There will always be someone who’s unhappy and threatened by the people we are. They will criticise, tear us down, block our paths and the temptation to drop down to their levels will arise, but the best way forward for peace is to resonate at a higher vibration. Send them love, send them light, send them forgiveness and focus on your own path.

Rest in Peace dear Anna. Your words of wisdom will stay on forever.

Why do some people take longer to see any benefits from meditation?

Clear Quartz Ganesha, personal collection

Speaking from personal experience, it took me 2 years of daily meditation to actually feel the real experience. Why did it take me so long?

  1. I’m naturally a restless person, I found it hard to stay still as a child and even as an adult, meditating in one pose was really really hard in the beginning. I would get pins and needles on my feet and found it hard to stop thinking about the physical realm.
  2. I can think think think all day till I get tired. And during the first months of meditation my thoughts just wouldn’t stop.
  3. My own fears would hold me back from being in the place of stillness and surrender. It was the unknown, it was so new. And my own subconscious fears and resistance were holding me back from getting into that state.
  4. My own soul learnings. This is what reading about the subject taught me. Meditation is a journey that can span lifetimes. People who have been experienced many lifetimes of spiritual living, meditating etc would take a shorter time to feel the benefits of meditation than those who were spiritual novices. Made sense to me.

Now that it’s been over 20 years of regular meditation I don’t care how long it took me initially, the point I learnt is to not give up. Had a distracted and restless meditation session, never mind, tomorrow will be better. Had to cut short your meditation because of another appointment. That’s ok a little meditation is better than none.

Meditation is not competition. There is no race to enlightenment. It is only a way to find peace, to connect, to heal and to be. If it’s taking you longer than other students to understand, that’s ok. Just don’t give up trying. The peace you feel inside you is the biggest reward/benefit and that cannot be compared.

All the best on your journey:)

Is Green Your Colour?

Tags

, , ,

A green Diwali in our home last month

Green is the color of Mother Earth and is considered to be the most restful colour for our eyes. Long symbolized by the ancient Egyptians as the color of hope and healing, green has been used extensively by ancient healers and modern day colour therapists. Studies have revealed that those who work in green environments have fewer stomach aches. And suicides dropped by 30% when the Black Friar Bridge in London was repainted green. Painting kitchens green brings feelings of freshness and vitality while cooking. Surgeons began to wear the colour green as it helped to calm their patients and heal them at subtle levels.

Green has restorative and rejuvenating qualities. It represents regrowth, abundance and peace which is what Nature gives to us. The colour green too is neutral, and can work with other colors. In chakra healing green symbolizes our heart chakra, from where we give and receive love. Green crystals like Aventurine, Jade and Emerald are said to protect, heal and soothe physical ailments. Green is ruled by the planet of Mercury that guides our communication and a great day to wear Green is on Wednesdays. Some currencies have been printed in Green to denote prosperity and wealth.

My favourite spot during walking meditations

Here are a few ways to heal yourself and others with Green

Green is easy to add to any environment through the use of plants. As living things, plants add energy and harmony to any space. Natural purifiers they reduce the effects of pollution indoors. Plants like Ficus, Areca Palm, Money planet help change the energies of the room you’re in. Avoid plants in bedrooms though.

For restful sleep, green bed linen or curtains or walls help reduce anxiety.

Carry a green wallet or keep some money in a green envelope in your purse.

While meditating, focus on a green object – a plant, a painting, even a green statue. This colour harmonizes the flow of prana or universal life force, throughout the psychic centres.

There are many more ways to use the colour green in your life, not only creatively but also therapeutically.

Just standing in front of the tree was therapy itself

If you would like to copy an excerpt or the whole reading kindly provide a link to this page.

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Your fiercely independent streak will make sure you do things your way, the right way, and the best way. People will notice your originality and appreciate your point of view. However in your quest to stand out, just make sure you don’t promise what you can’t deliver.. A wonderful month for receiving, building, consolidating and growing – the cards promise success and recognition. Family and friends may take a back seat while you focus on studies or work matters. Just remember to express gratitude to all those who brought you to where you are today.

Taurus (Apr 20- May 20)

Energies shift suddenly and you may find yourself struggling to find harmony again with certain relationships. The old comfort levels may give way to an uneasy tension. Instead of keeping quiet like you normally do, how about expressing your feelings and clearing the air? Workwise you may find yourself making some hard choices. Don’t worry, whatever you pick will be good for you in the long run. A recurring health ailment may require a new line of treatment or a second opinion. – be mindful about what you eat. The company of old friends will heal your soul.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Boredom and restless energies start creeping when you realise you are not tapping fully into your true potential. A quiet voice inside you keeps telling you that you should be doing something else, something more, to find absolute fulfillment. And unless and until you make peace with that side of you, you may start feeling trapped by circumstances. Stop blaming others and see what needs to change within you. Workwise a good month to make your mark, you attract new business and start making an impact in new circles. Go with the flow and be regular with your meditation. An opportunity may come your way to reach out to a larger market or audience

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Ever get the feeling that you’re doing all the work but someone else is getting credit for it? Or the people around you are totally oblivious to your efforts and perhaps even ungrateful. Before it makes you bitter, start changing your situation. Be assertive say no more often. You may find yourself being irritable with loved ones, but do they deserve it? A month to bring in a few necessary changes in your self and the world around you. Money may arrive from unexpected sources and a proposal or a surprise job offer may lift your spirits.

Leo (July 23- Aug 22)

Life has a way of bringing back all the unfinished business in our lives and this month sees you busy completing projects, finishing chores and doing all the things you had postponed earlier. Be a little more organised with your time and say no to those who make excessive demands on your time or energy. An old friend may act unreasonably and you may wish to distance yourself from the drama. Watch out for sudden expenses towards the end of the month, make sure you have enough saved away for a rainy day.

Virgo (Aug 23- Sept 22)

If there’s anyone who can get the job done, it’s you. Dependable to the core, your efforts will get recognised and rewarded. Job seekers can look forward to a busy month but not all promises will be honoured, so make sure you keep all your options open. A good month for starting new ventures or projects, the cards promise success and more importantly, a feeling of fulfilment. If happiness means staying busy, then look forward to a month of productivity, planning and desired results. Family reminds you that you are loved and supported unconditionally.

Libra (Sept 23- Oct 22)

The comfort zone is wonderful but it never lasts. Sudden developments and changes at the work environment will make you realise you need to work a little harder or faster if you want to meet the deadline. A casual flirtation could go on longer than either of you expected. News about a friend or family member will take you by surprise. A good month to think about further education and skill development. Money matters improve and you may think of making a large purchase.

Scorpio (Oct 23- Nov21)

The truth has a way of coming out, and as the secrets begin to spill, you may need to confront something you’ve been keeping from yourself, or another person. Time to make amends or start anew. At the workplace a competitive rival may create a few hurdles on your path. Stay calm even when provoked and you will prove victorious. Worrying about money matters will only waste your energy, focus on the solution instead of the problem.

Saggitarius (Nov 22- Dec 21)

You’re determined to get your way and you won’t back down to anyone who opposes or contradicts you. You may feel a sense of renewed energy creep in so make sure your days in November are worth your time. A manipulative person will be put in his or her place, or you may choose to cut contact with someone forever. Those seeking to find a potential spouse can look forward to an interesting proposal. Health matters are manageable, and your spirits are bright. Dont be careless with your valuables.

Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan19)

If you don’t start voicing your concerns and you may feel you’re being taken advantage of. Speak out or get stepped on seems to be the theme and a little more alertness around work relationships will help you reestablish the balance. Family responsibilities won’t be so tiresome when you share or delegate your duties. A short trip away will bring relief. And an old friend will bring some lovely news.

Aquarius (Jan 20- Feb 18)

Your life changes when you decide to make a change. Perhaps it’s your health that needs your attention. Or maybe just a makeover. You’re quite fed up of the old ways and may be itching for adventure and excitement. Open your mind to new job opportunities or even launching that start up you dream about. Only you have the power over your thoughts. So direct them to bringing in some positive new energies into your life. In matters of the heart, an old flame may reconnect with you but will you still be interested?

Pisces (Feb 19- Mar20)

Hearts skip a beat this month at the sight of a special someone. You may find yourself falling for someone’s natural charm. Or busy writing, reading, and talking as the card of communications makes sure you shine and dazzle with your intelligent wit. Energies could suddenly speed up mid month so do fasten your speed belts and expect speedy processes and closures. Something works out faster than you think. Impulse decisions could change your life.
