Let it’s mysterious energy knock you off your feet.
And that IS going to happen the day you stop looking and enjoy your present state.
Understand that the reason you are alone right now is because you’re meant to focus on other things, learn other lessons of Life and to tap into your inner self. And find the love within you. Anyone else would merely be a distraction. Yes it feels like forever till they come, but it’s not. Forever is letting Love grow inside you and someday, suddenly, appear in front of you.
A successful business man was growing old and knew it was time to choose a successor to take over the business.
Instead of choosing one of his Directors or his children, he decided to do something different. He called all the young executives in his company together.
He said, “It is time for me to step down and choose the next CEO. I have decided to choose one of you..”
The young executives were Shocked, but the boss continued. “I am going to give each one of you a SEED today – one very special SEED… I want you to plant the seed, water it, and come back here one year from today with what you have grown from the seed I have given you. I will then judge the plants that you bring, and the one I choose will be the next CEO.”
One man, named Jim, was there that day and he, like the others, received a seed. He went home and excitedly, told his wife the story. She helped him get a pot, soil and compost and he planted the seed. Everyday, he would water it and watch to see if it had grown. After about three weeks, some of the other executives began to talk about their seeds and the plants that were beginning to grow.
Jim kept checking his seed, but nothing ever grew.
Three weeks, four weeks, five weeks went by, still nothing.
By now, others were talking about their plants, but Jim didn’t have a plant and he felt like a failure.
Six months went by — still nothing in Jim’s pot. He just knew he had killed his seed. Everyone else had trees and tall plants, but he had nothing. Jim didn’t say anything to his colleagues, however.
He just kept watering and fertilizing the soil – He so wanted the seed to grow.
A year finally went by and all the young executives of the company brought their plants to the CEO for inspection.
Jim told his wife that he wasn’t going to take an empty pot. But she asked him to be honest about what happened. Jim felt sick to his stomach, it was going to be the most embarrassing moment of his life, but he knew his wife was right. He took his empty pot to the board room. When Jim arrived, he was amazed at the variety of plants grown by the other executives. They were beautiful — in all shapes and sizes. Jim put his empty pot on the floor and many of his colleagues laughed, a few felt sorry for him!
When the CEO arrived, he surveyed the room and greeted his young executives.
Jim just tried to hide in the back. “My, what great plants, trees, and flowers you have grown,” said the CEO. “Today one of you will be appointed the next CEO!”
All of a sudden, the CEO spotted Jim at the back of the room with his empty pot. He ordered the Financial Director to bring him to the front. Jim was terrified. He thought, “The CEO knows I’m a failure! Maybe he will have me fired!”
When Jim got to the front, the CEO asked him what had happened to his seed – Jim told him the story.
The CEO asked everyone to sit down except Jim. He looked at Jim, and then announced to the young executives, “Behold your next Chief Executive Officer!
His name is Jim!” Jim couldn’t believe it. Jim couldn’t even grow his seed.
“How could he be the new CEO?” the others said.
Then the CEO said, “One year ago today, I gave everyone in this room a seed. I told you to take the seed, plant it, water it, and bring it back to me today. But I gave you all boiled seeds; they were dead – it was not possible for them to grow.
All of you, except Jim, have brought me trees and plants and flowers. When you found that the seed would not grow, you substituted another seed for the one I gave you. Jim was the only one with the courage and honesty to bring me a pot with my seed in it. Therefore, he is the one who will be the new Chief Executive Officer!”

Meet my Himalayan Singing Bowl. Gifted to me by a visiting Regressionist from New Zealand over 10 years ago, this ancient healing tool is one of my prized tools for balancing and healing, cleansing and purifying not just me and my family and clients, but also my home and office. I love playing it walking from room to room or simply meditating with it. It is not uncommon to find people owning 3-4 of these, playing each one alternatively. Me, I’m happy with just one.
According to the Tibetans, these bowls have been around since Buddha’s times and are the quintessential aid for meditation, healing and cleansing practices. They produce a sound that immediately balances our brains, our chakras and deeply relaxes those who hear it. Meditating on the sound helps tune one into the universal sounds of Universe. Easily available at alternative healing stores and Tibetan antique/handicraft shops, Himalayan Tibetan bowls should always be tested before purchase.
For an idea of what it sounds like, do listen to this video here. And if you’d like a live demonstration after a Tarot/Healing session, I’d be more than happy to play it for you :):)
We’ve all had times in our lives when we felt devoid of energy, listless and completely disinterested with life. Thankfully, it is a temporary condition for most of us.

Here are some Crystals which can work as energy boosters.
Clear Quartz (Sphatika) Available in cut or polished form and in raw clusters, clear quartz has been hailed as ‘battery of the soul’ by healers over centuries. It not only helps dispel toxins but helps restore our body’s energy balance. The quartz is beneficial for the mind, body and the spirit. A clear quartz works at all levels, bringing in a sense of calm, clarity and harmony.
Green Tourmaline (Turmali) Deep leaf green in hue, this semi precious stone is found in most jewellery shops. Also known as verdalite, it is best worn as a pendant or a bracelet in silver. It works as an all round healer, restoring the balance and bringing back positive energy. It not just dispels toxins and fears but aids in restful sleep and raising energy levels too.
A powerful combination of both amethyst and citrine, this purple and yellow stone helps you get clarity. It thus improves our focus and brings in harmony, making us optimistic. This stone will help you find a solution to any problem.
Ranging in shades from yellow to brown, citrine is hailed as the carrier of the sun’s rays. It is a powerful cleanser and regenerator of body cells. It works as an effective chakra activator and energizer; especially the solar plexus chakra (at the stomach). It also brings in joy and improves your physical energy too.
Healing crystals work in restoring energy, vitality and harmony into a person’s life. Slow and sure, these gifts of mother nature have helped millions of people through time. They can be used as effective complementary healing aids to reduce stress, anxiety and tiredness.
