The act of decluttering our possessions is one of the most positive things you can do for you and your home. By letting go of the broken, the worn out, ill fitting or just boring we lighten our baggage indoors significantly. Don’t you feel good when you drop the cartons off at your local charity? Or discover the joy of recycling?
I used to declutter twice a year during the change of seasons and wardrobes but discovered it was still feeling stuffy at home and have now begun decluttering just one drawer, shelf, desk every few days. Less time consuming less overwhelming and a little bit of feel good afterwards.
Good Energy one carton at a time.
Decluttering is no longer limited to Spring, anytime of the year is a good time. What I love about it is that it teaches us to focus on what is essential and what truly matters. And after a good session of letting go, I like to burn essential oils for purification and positive energy.
How often do you declutter and how do you feel about it?
The more we learn to tune inwards to our own inner self the more we realise we knew somethings all along. In that space of absolute tranquility is where the answers come. Going from reader to astrologer to psychic to numerologist to regressionist to face reader for an answer will give you wide and varied responses, but will never resonate as well as what we know to be true deep down inside us.
Just when I think I’ve let so much go, an old painful memory comes creeping in during my meditations to remind me there is still inner work to be done. And when I heal myself for one final time I realise I had been holding on to some unecessary baggage for way too long. God only knows why 🙂
Self Love is not One Size Fits All. The journey differs for each individual yet the goal is common. If we all love ourselves, we learn to love each other.
It is not a one time practice. It’s a daily practice be it in the form of prayer, affirmation, meditation, exercise – self love and self care is a continuous discovery of ourselves through the good, the bad and the ugly within us.
Self Love can no longer be ignored. The wounded will always wound the other. Until we embrace and heal our own wounds we will always hurt inside and consciously/unconsciously hurt another. No need for detail here, just follow the News to see what is happening.
Self Love is acknowledging our own toxic traits and working on them.
It’s much much more than choosing the right make up and colour highlight it’s a continuous journey inwards and feeling right.
Though it is important to have “me” it is equally important to recognise that eventually it’s about “we”. The better my relationship with my innerself, the better my relationship with any other being on this planet.
Life is asking you to take a leap of faith. Open your mind and take that risk. Do what you dream about. And don’t be afraid. Why get stuck in a dead end job or relationship you know deep down isnt the one for you? Pluck up the courage to follow your bliss. Financially a luckymonth, you may decide to invest in property or buy that car you’ve been eyeing. Whatever you do, do differently. And who knows, you may just end up with a pleasant surprise or two, or three!
Taurus (Apr 20- May 20)
Temper temper dear Taurean. Someone or something is bringing out the worst
in you. And before you lash out or explode, count to 10 or 20. Anger is
destructive and relationships get damaged with wrath. How about burning up the
energy productively and peacefully through exercise or meditation? Self
employed Taureans may have to contend with temporary obstacles in their career
and if you pass this test then it’s accolades all the way. The health of a
young child may be a cause for worry, timely medication may do the trick.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Listen to your intuition. If you feel someone’s lying, they are. If you get a funny feeling about something, don’t doubt your inner voice. Not a time to start anything new the cards urge you to watch and wait for a bit. Things are forming and now may not be the right moment to strike out. Express your creativitity while you’re waiting. A part of you seeks expression in painting, poetry, writing or dance. Don’t hold back. A chance encounter with a stranger may lead to a sudden romance.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You know you have had enough when you give someone a piece of your mind. This weekmonth sees you assertive, dynamic and raring to go. Use the energy to accomplish unfinished chores and projects. And if you were planning to go in for business, expect good luck and a lot of helpful contacts coming your way. Single Cancerians may find themselves falling for the charms of an older man. Beware, he may be married or not telling you the truth.
Leo (July 23- Aug 22)
Something you hoped would go to plan doesn’t. Someone promises but doesn’t deliver. A month full of minor disappointments, but nothing to stop your enthusiasm and optimism. Keep going dear Leo, even when it seems like there is no choice, good things are coming your way, but first you need to learn from mistakes and a few minor failures. Watch out for your tendency to splurge a bit too much and if you’re a lover of food or drink, do practice moderation for your health’s sake.
Virgo (Aug 23- Sept 22)
Bills, bills, bills. You clear one payment and another one is due. May feel a little exasperating as you find you have very little left for yourself, but do realise that money is just an energy and it has to flow inwards and out. Domestic repairs may get you down a bit and your spouse or parents may not be as understanding as you’d like. Take a deep breath and fulfil your responsibilities. And if you’re feeling undervalued, you’re not. All your hard work isnt going unnoticed at all. Expect pleasant respite towards the end of the month.
Libra (Sept 23- Oct 22)
All work and no play makes Jack or Jill very
dull indeed. And with so much to do, you may find yourself getting more and
more tired out by your daily demands. Take a break and recharge your batteries
dear Libran before you simply flop down with exhaustion. Yes, there’s a lot to
accomplish and the deadlines are looming, but you do need to balance your life.
If involved with someone you may decide to spend some time apart to think
through the relationship. Married Librans may plan a child.
Scorpio (Oct 23- Nov21)
How much can you do alone? Arent you getting tired of doing it all? Learn
to delegate and most importantly say NO to those who ask too much of you. Or
worse still, those who waste your time and energy. Decide in advance how much
you can and will do, and stick to your limits. Watch out for a recurring back
ailment towards the end of the week. You know it’s stress so it’s time you
considered stress relieving measures daily like yoga or exercise.
Saggitarius (Nov 22- Dec 21)
A part of you has had enough. You may feel like putting in your papers or
simply going on a long sabbatical. Students may prolong their holidays under
this influence. Or you may decide to change careers in this period. Something
less taxing and something you love. Family matters may get tense and you are
advised to watch your health. Avoid eating out.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan19)
You may not feel very sociable in the days ahead and prefer your own
company. A little bit of seclusion and introspecting hurts nobody and you’d
probably emerge clearer and lighter after some time away from work or family or
whatever you feel you’ve had enough of. Catch up on your reading. A good time
to organise your paperwork or declutter your wardrobes, the cards urge you to
re-organise your schedule. Busy days are coming so it’s better to be prepared.
Aquarius (Jan 20- Feb 18)
Though you may not agree, a part of you remains in denial about something which is obvious to the rest of the world. It could be an annoying habit or a situation that doesn’t help you in bit. Take the advice of a neutral party. And if you find the same problems repeating themselves again in your life, perhaps you need to break the pattern. Financially, a long awaited cheque finally arrives. And if you were planning to travel expect a smooth journey after a few minor hiccups!
Pisces (Feb 19- Mar20)
The focus this week is on structure, planning and bringing in more self discipline
into your life. If you’ve been taking things easy you may get a warning to pull
up your socks. If you’ve been taking someone for granted, they may cool off.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you and remember it’s not too late to make amends. A
powerful man may offer some advice which could be life changing. A fitness regime or diet will bring in the

“I get these awful headaches during work lately, my sleep is poor, I can’t seem to stop thinking about what people said or did and I’m uneasy” – Project Lead, Multinational Bank
“I cannot trust my Boss. He’s stealing credit for my work and putting me down all the time. There are some mornings when I’m too tired to wake up to my alarm.” Client Servicing Manager

“This place is full of gossip and rumours, Nobody looks happy” Financial Analyst, MNC
If any of these statements rings a bell, you know you’re in a toxic work environment and you need to take immediate steps before it robs you of happiness totally.
A Few Tips
Start an exit strategy.
You can wait till things get better but at what cost? Update your resume and start looking for options.
2. Practice Self Care Daily
Do something that’s positive and beneficial for your mental and physical health. Walking Meditations. Swimming. Regular Ayurvedic Massages. Dance. Something that shakes away the toxic energies that you may be absorbing in your work environment.
3.Connect with Nature
Even if it’s walking barefoot in a nearby park, or tending to a flowerpot allow Nature to heal you while you disconnect from the office
4. Be with your Loved Ones
Sometimes all it takes is a hug from a child. Or a cup of tea made by a friend to remind you that you’re special.
Peace of mind is precious. Physical health even more precious. Never be with someone or some place that’s making you sick. For more insights on toxic workplaces get in touch and we’ll see what the Tarot has to say about a way forward for you.
A man who’s mind was way ahead of his times. A self confessed madman who mesmerised the world with his words, his eyes and even his Rolls Royce’s. Who’s words still jump out of the page and shake me out of my stupor. Thank you Osho for the wake up call.
A visit to the hospital or clinic always brings us face to face with the kind of suffering there is in this world. Nobody is spared. Not us. Not the others. Not even the babies. Not even the animals.
Om Bekhandze Bekhandze Maha Bekhandze
Bekhandze Randza Samudgate Svaha
The Medicine Buddha Mantra calls to the Medicine Buddha to eliminate
the pain of illness and suffering. The mantra is repeated several times
with increasing intensity imploring the Medicine Buddha to hear and
relieve the depth of suffering. It then hails the enlightenment of the
Medicine Buddha and offers profound respect as the prayer is
relinquished to the Medicine Buddha.
OM (this is not a “word” but the intonation of the sacred vibration of the universe)
Bekhandze O Healer (of suffering)
Bekhandze O Healer (of the true cause of suffering)
Maha bekhandzeO Great Healer (of subtle defilements that cause suffering)
Bekhandze Randza O King of Healing
Samudgateperfectly liberated auspicious being
Svaha I offer this prayer and now relinquish it … (to you Medicine Buddha)”
This is one English version of the meaning and intent of the Mantra:
May the sentient beings that suffer across space and time
May their illness and the causes of illness be quickly removed.
And may this illness of body, speech and mind forever be gone.
