About Me

I have done a lot of things in my life and have also worked in many different jobs to make a living and to experience life. This blog is just some of my musings, sometimes funny, sometimes inspirational, sometimes sad, sometimes angry, sometimes simple but all the time, it's just me.

The Healer Within


We are supposedly created in God's image. If you believe in that then we should also have similar healing powers. If you do not believe that, and believe in the big bang and science, than you also believe energy exists out there.

You can use this energy for healing. It is not you who heal, it is the energy that heals.

There is a healer within all of us but the western medicines and habits of taking pills, vitamins etc. have made us to rely on these quick pain relieve methods rather than rely on energies and healing powers that already exists within us.

The ability to heal is not restricted to those with rare gift, we all have the capacity.

I recently became a Reiki Master and if you would like I could teach you how to use this power you already possess. Of course this requires some form of classroom training and not through my  blogs.

The word heal comes from the word hoelen which means to become whole. We are spirit in human form; and spirit is perfect and wants us to be whole in body, mind and soul.

To start any healing process, you have to let go of any old limiting beliefs in your mind as well as your soul.  Begin healing the whole by changing your attitudes, perceptions and behaviours.

Work with your soul self and slowly but firmly peel away the many layers of limitations developed over the year and finally let go of them.

Recently, after my accident, I discovered 2 slipped disc on my neck which was causing a significant amount of pain and discomfort. I went to see neurosurgeon as well as orthopedic. Thankfully, both did not belief in cutting people up. I then went to physiotherapy which worked well in the beginning but in the end there was not much improvement. I also did Pilates which made things worse but mainly to the fault of the instructor.

So, I went back within myself. I used the healing power within myself. I used my Reiki. And currently, I am off from taking Gabapentine at night just to be able to sleep. Of course, I still need to keep my posture correct but healing myself has helped me to use the energies of the universe.

Reiki is a universal life force energy, an ancient gift from above that has been within us all this while. It radiates from out of the hands and applied to one with love and for the highest good. We are but a circuit to help the body, mind and soul and to help the body, mind and soul to mend. We use it for the highest good and it is not I who stands as a healer but it is the energy that I send. My Reiki hands stand ready for what service they may do; for when we are helping and healing others, we feel the healing too.

God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference.



These are the Reiki Ideals created by modern day founder of these healing methods, Dr Mikao Usui. I call it modern founder because Reiki healing is within all of us and have existed for thousands of years but were lost and were re-found by Dr Usui. It is used by Reiki masters in Japan. It was provided by a Japanese Reiki master, Toshitaka Mochizuki in conjunction with his Reiki book, "Iyashi No Te" (Healing Hands). The following is a line for line translation starting from the right.


The secret art of inviting happiness
The miraculous medicine of all diseases
Just for today,
Do not anger
Do not worry and be filled with gratitude
Devote yourself to your work.
Be kind to people.
Every morning and evening, join your hands in prayer.
Pray these words to your heart,
and chant these words with your mouth.
Usui Reiki Treatment for the improvement of body and mind.

I will be starting Reiki classes soon, if you are interested, write to me. When a student is ready, the master will be there. Of course, I will teach anyone who truly wants to learn.

Like a dear friend from meditation class sent this wonderful story, I am sharing it here with you.

The Buddha explained how to handle insult and maintain compassion.

One day Buddha was walking through a village. A very angry and rude young man came up and began insulting him. "You have no right teaching others," he shouted. "You are as stupid as everyone else. You are nothing but a fake."

Buddha was not upset by these insults. Instead he asked the young man "Tell me, if you buy a gift for someone, and that person does not take it, to whom does the gift belong?"

The man was surprised to be asked such a strange question and answered, "It would belong to me, because I bought the gift."

The Buddha smiled and said, "That is correct. And it is exactly the same with your anger. If you become angry with me and I do not get insulted, then the anger falls back on you. You are then the only one who becomes unhappy, not me. All you have done is hurt yourself."

"If you want to stop hurting yourself, you must get rid of your anger and become loving instead. When you hate others, you yourself become unhappy. But when you love others, everyone is happy."

The young man listened closely to these wise words of the Buddha. "You are right, Enlightened One, "he said. "Please teach me the path of love. I wish to become your follower."

The Buddha answered kindly, "Of course. I teach anyone who truly wants to learn."

Take care and be well.

Reach out, reach in

Are you lonesome tonight,
Do you miss me tonight?
Are you sorry we drifted apart?
Does your memory stray to a brighter sunny day
When I kissed you and called you my heart?
Is your heart filled with pain, shall I come back again?
Tell me body, are you lonesome tonight?
I wonder if you're lonesome tonight
You know someone said that the worlds a stage
And each must play a part.
Body, you lied when you said you loved me
And I had no cause to doubt you.
But I'd rather go on hearing your lies
Than go on living without you.
Now the stage is bare and I'm standing there
With emptiness all around
And if you won't come back to me
Then make them bring the curtain down.
~ A song by your soul 

Are you lonesome? Have you connected to your soul? The divine soul misses you as much as you miss it but if you are not going back, then you may as well bring the curtain down as you have given up.
 
Many years ago, I gave a speech and wrote an essay about the big difference between being alone and being lonely.
 
A person living in the woods all alone and very contented with his life is likely not lonely but a person amidst the crowd can be lonely.
 
Your soul has been lonely if you have not connected to your divinity yet. He is doing all the mundane stuff and guiding your life without any acknowledgment, love, gratitude but the soul is divine and will keep doing his job. But he will wait patiently in this lifetime for you to connect and if you miss the opportunity, he will just wait in the next lifetime.
 
So if you are feeling lonely, go connect with your soul.
 
You see, loneliness can just elicit pain and is self imposed - so you can change how you feel.
 
Here are some steps to help you to reach out and this will help you to reach in to your soul, your angels and your guardians and you will never again feel lonely again:

Journal out your feelings. How do you feel when you are lonely? Why are you feeling lonely? When do you feel lonely? What do you do to get out of your loneliness? Write whatever you want, write without any restrictions and inhibitions.

Do something totally different that you have never done before. Over the past years, I always like to travel with my wifey to a new destination that we have never been before and that always leads us to a very memorable sol connecting memory, not all good memories but many many wonderful great memories. I also recently became a Reiki Master, an Animal Communicator, a Tarot card reader, a blogger .... things I would not have dreamt of doing ten years ago.

Connect with nature. I have always loved nature. Take a walk, listen to the breeze, the leaves rustling, the birds singing. Recently, over my birthday, I took three days off and mainly worked on the garden in my house. Digging and mixing earth, planting flowers and vegetables and trees. It was back-breaking, sweaty and extremely tiring work but I have never been so satisfied working with mother nature. I serene and beautiful connection happened between the soul of I and Mother Nature and it was beautiful beyond words and pictures.

Volunteer your time. Nothing makes you feel better than to volunteer your time to help another person. The benefits will work both ways and it will truly be rewarding for both body and soul. You can volunteer at old folks home, feed homeless like my French friend does by driving around on a Kechara lorry on Friday evenings, you can even work with animals.

Become a leader within your community. This is not as easy in many places but see what of your skills you can help in your neighbourhood. I may do some free Reiki healing sessions in Bangsar soon or maybe even at my workplace.

I have mentioned many times before, the soul is eternal and infinite and never dies, only your body does. So, it will be good to have soul connection.

Do you know what else never dies?

Love, love never dies. The soul will love your body always, the soul and the higher Divine are sweethearts too and love will never die.

So, start loving your soul, he already loves you. Do not be lonesome tonight, do not be lonely any longer.

I thank you and I love you. I am grateful for the many readers that find something wonderful in my writing and have changed their lives. Some readers who have even blogged about me and my Musings, I am truly grateful, thank you, I love you.

Take care and be well.

Relationships

What are kindred souls? Whenever one hears about kindred souls, they automatically have a romantic or love connection. However a kindred soul can also be someone who tests your nerves and stretches your potential beyond anything you think is possible.

Everyone has this type of relationships - we just need to take time and look into our past. Not all relationships have to be one to one, they can be with a group, organization, pet or even a situation.

My potential changed to beyond I thought was possible over a few incidents over the last year based on people I met as well as inspirations and messages from the Divine and my guardians and angels.

Write down in the journal you are keeping a list of relationships you have had. See if they have guided you to the direction where you are now or did they lead you away from your purpose.

I recently decided to terminate some relationships that were taking me away from my soul purpose and were just selfish for their own needs. Yes, some relationships are not easy to terminate, but this is way cutting of ethereal cords become important.

Now write down all the relationships that are happening in your life right now, be it husband, wife, or boss or pet, or a situation or an incident. And ask the following questions about each of these relationships:
  1. What am I learning from this relationship?
  2. What qualities am I developing?
  3. Is this relationship for my highest good?
  4. How can I make this relationship better?
  5. Is there an even exchange of energy?
  6. Are e learning from each other?
  7. What have I discovered, or am I still discovering, about myself through this relationship?
  8. Are the people in my life empowering and encouraging me to be all that I can be?
Within every relationship, there are lessons to be learned or still need to learn.

The most important relationship that you will learn from is from your relationship with your soul.

Stop for a moment without all the distractions, no emails, phones or even reading my blogs and allow you and your soul to have some solitude.

This will allow you to filter what is working and what is not working, which relationships are working and which are not, what needs to be done to make things work for you and the soul within you.

It will be a way of dealing and releasing and purging the things that have been consuming your vital soul and holding you back from living the life you want.

Just clear your physical space of clutter, the energetic fields that are a vital part of your soul must be cleansed of the disruptive energies and emotions.

Restore your connection with your divine soul and the divine wisdom.

I love you and I thank you.

Take care and be well.

Love is all around me

I feel it in my fingers
I feel it in my toes
Love is all around me
And so the feeling grows
It's written on the wind
It's everywhere I go, oh yes, it is
So if you really love me
Come on and let it show, oh
You know, I love you, I always will
My mind's made up
By the way that I feel
There's no beginning
There'll be no end
'Cause on my love you can depend
You know, I love you, I always will
My mind's made up by the
Way that I feel
There's no beginning
There'll be no end
'Cause on my love you can depend

Love is really all around, it is infinite and always there, but do you have it within?

Let us begin today with a journey of letting love enter your heart and your life and allow you and the soul of you to receive and to radiate love from within the pureness of the soul that you are.

Listen to your heart and your soul, linking and blending in with your divine source.

Sit on a comfortable chair but do not lie down. Have your back straight. Relax your head and shoulders.

Close your eyes and breathe slowly. Allow your body to simply relax.

If you are stressed, imagine your stress leaving you as you exhale.

Take time to relax and exhale different tensions and stresses and become aware of them one by one.

Place one palm over on the center of your chest, roughly where your heart is and place another palm over the first.

Inhale into your stomach and let your breath slowly raise to your chest and exhale slowly. Do this for a few minutes.

As you simply focus on your breathing, allow your mind to become still and thoughts to go silent. Let go and do not pay any attention to any thoughts that creep up, just let them blow away like soap bubbles and do not pay attention to them.

Focus on your breath as you inhale and exhale.

Keep you eyes closed, take your hands away from your chest and rub them gently. As they get warm and infused with energy, place your hands back on the same position over your chest again.

Imagine a nice bright, beautiful, brilliant emerald green light filled with energy as it enters your heart through your hands and fills your whole chest area. Continue with this for a moment and feel the energy and light run up and down your spine slowly and smoothly and fill your entire body with this light and energy.

As you breathe out, imagine this emerald green energy and light releasing any negative emotions of anger, feelings of failure and even criticisms of yourself and others.

As you breathe in imagine positive energies like kindness, compassion, forgiveness and love flowing into your heart chakra and spreading throughout every corner and cranny of your body, spreading to every fiber and nerve and atom of your cells.

Focus on your heart chakra and breathe in to this area. As you again fill yourself with these positive feelings and energies, and now as you exhale, imagine breathing out these positive energies slowly. First to your immediate surroundings, then spread this love to the world, slowly and surely, fill the world and the Universe with this beautiful love energy.

Imagine sending this love energy to your family members, your close friends, the animals, trees and all inhabitants of the world.

You are a being of light and love. Your heart and soul know no boundaries as they fill the Universe with positive loving energy.

When you have done so, slowly bring back the awareness to yourself and your heart chakra and when you are ready open your eyes and ground your hands. Slowly flex yourself and get up.

Practice, practice, practice and let us all fill this world and Universe and every heart and every soul with infinite love.

Thank you. I love you.

Take care and be well.

Aloha

Aloha is sharing and caring.
Aloha is doing your part, and a little more.
Aloha is being constant and steadfast.
Aloha is smiling, and meaning it.
Aloha is comfort where comfort is needed.
Aloha is a warm hug!
Aloha is extending a hand to someone who needs it.
Aloha is making every person you meet feel special.
Aloha is always looking forward, and not looking back.
Aloha is having faith in others.
Aloha is spreading the sunshine!
Aloha is never selfish or judgemental.
Aloha is Love!
~ Pali Jae Lee

Love is the power, it powers the soul.

The chakras are the batteries of the soul and they are recharged by love and love powers the soul, the soul of I, the soul that is you.

Love is not meant to be a destination but it is a journey.

To feel the power of love in any lifetime can be one of the most beautiful, significant, and life-changing events that we experience as a soul.

This is the process to become a person we are meant to be - a person living and feeling from the heart and soul.

When love is in us, in our presence, it will move us, it will move our soul from deep within.

We have developed so many things and like I have said before, Internet is one of the biggest inventions of my time and despite all our creations and advancement in technology .... there are people who are incapable of doing something that should come naturally to us and our soul, which is giving and receiving love.

Love is the foundation of our existence. It is a wonderful emotion, and it is a perfect energy that propels us through our life.

It is truly the power of the soul for when it is received, it will radiate through your heart chakra and spread to all your chakras. Everything in your energetic system revolves around our heart chakra, like our personal sun.

Love reveals itself in many many forms and we will experience it at many different levels.

When one is loved, one feels safe. If in a loving environment, you will feel nurtured.

Remember, your soul cares for you and wants nothing in return - the soul of I loves me unconditionally. And the soul of you loves you unconditionally. It is the same type of love you will get from a pet dog that you treat well, the soul is like our little furry little pet dog within us, giving us unconditional love.

However, in order to give and receive love, you have to open your sun and let it shine, let it shine bright. Love is unconditional and there is infinite and abundant amount of it within your soul and within the Universe.

We are all beings of light, energy, love and compassion and therefore these are the forces that we need to bring from our heart center.

When our heart center is open, and the blocks cleared, healing can begin in all areas of our life. When this happens, we will be in a better place, happy and lovingly sharing with others as I am today.

Aloha is love. I love you. Thank you. Aloha. Love.


Take care and be well.

Do you feel clearly, do you see clearly, do you hear clearly?

All of us have know these monkeys. Since young we have been told see no evil, hear no evil, say no evil.

There has never been a monkey telling us to feel no evil.

Anyway, today, I am not talking about seeing, feeling or hearing evil or bad. I am writing about seeing, feeling and hearing good things, your guardians, your angels and the voice of your soul and the Divine all combine to guide your life to the path it has always meant to be.

What are the indicators that you are clairsentient or having a clear feeling? Ask yourself these questions:
  • Are your feelings hurt easily? I personally know someone who always gets their feelings hurt easily.
  • When meeting someone, do you intuitively know that something is wrong, even though the other person may appear happy? I can usually sense when a person is not happy.
  • When you are driving, do you sense sometime the need to take a different direction or when going for a walk, sense that you need to change route? Lately, Al E likes to change around his route of walking especially after he was bitten by some dog.
  • Are you someone whom many people will go to when they need to get something of their chest? People tend to tell me things but more to my wife, even things that they usually may not tell others in general.
  • Do you sometimes go to a party or be introduced to someone and you seem to feel immediately that you will not bond well with the person? I always seem to have very accurate first impression of people. I am not judging people immediately but a deep feeling within me usually tells me whether the person is good or not.
  • Do people often come to you to ask for direction? I am like a walking GPS. I even get asked directions when I am overseas and myself uncertain.
Clearsantience is inner knowing or inner feeling. Just knowing certain things and not always be able to explain where and how you know this.

If you are normally an upbeat person and suddenly feeling down or less upbeat. You may be tuning in to the feelings or vibrations from someone else without even knowing it. You may need to ask yourself if these are your feelings or feelings that you have taken on from another person.

How do you do this?

Next time this happens, just stop for a moment and focus in your solar plexus area and pose the question, "Whose feelings are these?" and see if you get an image or an answer to that.

If not, just continue focusing for a while, try to relax your body and still your mind.

If you are clairsentient, you generally have a soul to soul connection with another. This really gives a lot of benefits to you and your intuitive abilities and helps you understand another person better.

Next time when you meet someone new, look into their eyes and give them a real good handshake and hands and your fingers are wonderful receptors. Of course, if you are meeting a good friend, give them a nice big hug but remember and be clear that you may pick up on their feelings.

Also, when you about to make an important decision like buying a house, a car or any other decision which you need some internal answer, close your eyes, relax your body and still your mind.

Then hold your hands at your solar plexus and allow your solar plexus to be filled with the most brilliant and beautiful gold light. And ask the question and see if an answer, an emotion or an image comes to mind. The more specific your question, the more specific the answer will be.

To know if you are clairvoyant or have clear visions and clear seeing, ask yourself these questions:\
  • do you experience very clear and vivid dreams? My dreams and visions are sometimes so vivid that I feel it is reality until I suddenly wake up.
  • Are you someone that does not wear a watch because you have the ability to picture the correct time? I have not worn a watch in ages.
  • Are you good at visualising exactly where to place furniture to enhance energy flow in a room? My wife is generally better at this.
  • Can you look at people and know that they are going to get sick even though they appear to be quite healthy? I can only do this for a few limited group of people - like one or two.
  • When speaking to someone on the phone, are you able to envision how the other person looks although you have never met? This somehow I have not thought about before but I should try.
  • Do you generally prefer communicating via pictures?
Clairvoyance is the inner sense of seeing, when you receive information in form of images, symbols, colors, video and other visual stimuli.  it is using your third eye and this is the eye of the soul.

During early stages of development, the images can be quite fleeting or snapshots.

There are many videos and audio tapes available out there to help you to open your third eye chakra and some of these short videos on YouTube can be quite helpful.

However, try this. Light a small tea candle and look at it. As soon as your eyes start to water, close your eyes and cover your eyes with the palm of your hands. You will likely see the candle flickering slightly above your eyes in between your brows. This is the vision from your third eye.

The flame in the third eye will flicker off after a while when you are starting. So keep doing this exercise for ten to fifteen minutes.



So, next time you want to see with your soul, close your eyes and focus on your third eye. Let is be filled with brilliant and beautiful purple light and ask the third eye any question and see what images or symbols appear from the third eye.

Train your third eye, and start seeing through your soul. Train your inner feeling and start feeling through your solar plexus.

How about inner hearing or clairaudience? Ask yourself these questions:
  • How much do you think inside your head and talk inside your head? I lately talk a lot in my head and sometimes feel I have already said things out loud although it is only in my head.
  • Can you tell when someone is telling the truth? I normally can tell when people are not telling the truth.
  • Do you like loud places, are you attracted to loud places? I am not really attracted to loud places but really know people who are.
  • Do you have music playing in the background most of the time? I require generally a quiet environment but wife really requires her music.
  • Do you sometimes feel that you are hearing what others are thinking? I sometimes feel that I hear others thoughts when I see them.
Clairaudience is that small voice we so often hear but mostly do not pay attention to.

It is inner sense of hearing, the ability to hear things subjectively in your mind.

Over time, the information you receive through your inner voice, the soul's voice will flow smoothly and be sharper and clearer. The voice will be for the highest good and have a positive tone to it. If your receive negative information, it could be interference from someone else or interference from your own mind and monkey chatters. So, try to relax and still your mind.

One of the exercises you can do is to sit and relax in a quiet place. Now imagine your throat chakra filling with the brilliant and beautiful sky blue light. Imagine this area expanding and expanding.

Take a few moments to bathe in this beautiful light and then ask yourself a question and listen clearly for the soft answer that may come to you.

Next time you need to present to someone or are in a meeting or need to say something important to your boss, focus on your throat chakra, fill it with the sky blue light above and ask it for guidance on what to say during the meeting.

Another exercise you can do is to go to a public park and sit down on a bench and relax. Observe all the things around you. Close your eyes and concentrate on the sounds. How far can you hear. Start with the things near you and see what you can hear. Then go further and further.

Above are a few things you can do to improve your inner feelings, sight and hearing. Hope you will follow some of them through and have a good time with it.

In my next blog, I am going to write about the biggest and highest power of all that is within you. You can invoke this power anytime and whenever you invoke this power in it's purity, you will achieve anything. And this power is infinite, never ending, forever there.

Take care and be well.

Relaxing the body and stilling the mind

To become more aware of our souls inner guidance, we must first learn to relax our body and eventually still our minds. This may take some time and is not easy at first but will come naturally once you are used to it.

Meditation will help and is the way to get your body to relax and your mind to be still.

Once you are able to do this, you will feel more centered, grounded and balanced. Our bodies and mind are always interacting and always busy, so initially, relaxing the body and stilling the mind may be easier said than done, but as mentioned, it is possible and easy.

Through meditation, you will be able to blend your body and mind and you will reach a state of oneness. You will be able to explore your soul further and open up to all your senses.

Here is one way to start to relax your body. Sit down on a chair that is comfortable but with a back. If you prefer, you can sit on the floor in a lotus position but for the beginning, it is best to start on a chair. But do not lie down as you will have a tendency to nod off.

Wear comfortable clothing. Use soothing music if you like, not Slipknot or Nine Inch Nails.

Close your eyes and breathe in slowly. Slow, gentle but deep breaths. Then exhale all your tension out.

Breathe in again ad slowly start wiggling your left toes and breath out all tension from your left toes. Then do the same for the right toes. You can do it in any order, left or right does not matter.

Then move up to your feet, breathe in and move one foot at a time and breathe out any tension on the foot.

Do this for the knees, then the whole leg, one at a time.

Move up to your hips and breathe in and breathe out all the tension in your hips.

Do it for the stomach, then the chest. Then the shoulder, one side of the shoulder at a time.

Do it for the arms, then elbows, then wrists, palms and fingers - one arm at a time. Breathe in and breathe out the tension in each area.

Then move up to the neck, your jaws, your cheeks and your head - one at a time, breathe in gently and breathe out all the tension in those areas.

Finally, imagine right above your head, take a breath in and breathe out all the tension.

Feel the relaxation. Breathe in the pure light and release any tensions. Continue breathing in and breathing out pure light until there is no more tension to release and your body is totally relaxed and enveloped in pure relaxing light.

Continue to do this and let the chatter quiet down.

Now, on your third eye, the place in between your brows, imagine a symbol or a word or an image of your choice. It can be a flower, religious symbol like Om or a Cross, a figure like your guardian, a word even like Love or anything that is pleasing to you.

Imagine this on your third eye. Make this your special symbol for now and focus on it on your third eye without too much strain. Just let it take the course.

If your mind starts to wander, just focus on your gentle deep breathing and then continue to focus on this symbol on your third eye.

While you are completely relaxed, ask your higher self, your divine soul, your guardians and the higher Divine for an answer to a specific question.

You could get a message in any number of ways - it could be an image, colours, pictures, words and even your spiritual guardians could make themselves known to you.

Answers may not come immediately and nor would your guardians, but continue practising and i will come. It may be in a few days, few weeks or it could just be a few seconds.

After a certain time, about 20 to 30 minutes of pure relaxation and stilling your mind, allow yourself to come back to the present.

You could do this automatically with your mind or wiggle your fingers or toes. Allow your eyes to remain closed for a few seconds and when ready, open your eyes and ground your hands by placing the palms of your hands on the ground.

You can even do this meditation at night and you may get your answer in your dream. As such, keep a journal, write down any experience. Your soul, your guardians and the Divine will provide with you the answer.

Take care and be well.

The spiritual batteries of the soul

We are all born with batteries, many batteries. And just like any other batteries, the power of our batteries can get drained out. But the good thing is, we have the power within us, within our souls to recharge our own batteries.

Our batteries come in many colours, many wonderful colours that just energise and brighten up when we recharge our batteries.

Any idea what these batteries are? I used a picture to depict some of our batteries in my last post. It is our Chakra.

Chakra is a concept originating from Hindu texts and used in Hindu practices. Its name derives from the Sanskrit word for "wheel" or "turning".


Chakra is a concept referring to wheel-like vortices's which, according to traditional Indian medicine, are believed to exist in the surface of the etheric double of man.

The Chakras are said to be "force centers" or whorls of energy permeating, from a point on the physical body, the layers of the subtle bodies in an ever-increasing fan-shaped formation. Rotating vortices's of subtle matter, they are considered the focal points for the reception and transmission of energies.

It is typical for chakras to be depicted as either flower-like or wheel-like. In the former, "petals" are shown around the perimeter of a circle.

There are seven major chakras which I will explain below. Most of the explanation is from Wikipedia and other books I have read. There are said to be many other chakras, some even go into hundreds. But mainly, apart from the seven major chakras, there are 21 minor chakras which are reflected points of the major chakras.

These 21 are further grouped into 10 bilateral minor chakras that correspond to the foot, hand, knee, elbow, groin, clavicular, navel, shoulder and ear. The spleen may also be classified as a minor chakra by some authorities despite not having an associated coupled minor chakra.


Chakra07.gif
Sahasrara, The Crown Chakra, which means 1000 petalled lotus, is generally considered to be the chakra of pure consciousness, within which there is neither object nor subject.

Symbolized by a lotus with one thousand multi-coloured petals, it is located either at the crown of the head, or above the crown of the head. Sahasrara is represented by the colour white and it involves such issues as inner wisdom and the death of the body. 

Its role may be envisioned somewhat similarly to that of the pituitary gland, which secretes hormones to communicate to the rest of the endocrine system and also connects to the central nervous system via the hypothalamus. Sahasrara's inner aspect deals with the release of karma, physical action with meditation, mental action with universal consciousness and unity, and emotional action with "beingness".




Chakra06.gif
Ajna, the Brow or 3rd eye chakra, is symbolised by a lotus with two petals, and corresponds to the colors violet, indigo or deep blue.


Ajna is the third eye chakra and is linked to the pineal gland which may inform a model of its envisioning.

The pineal gland is a light sensitive gland that produces the hormone melatonin which regulates sleep and waking up. Ajna's key issues involve balancing the higher & lower selves and trusting inner guidance. Ajna's inner aspect relates to the access of intuition.

Mentally, Ajna deals with visual consciousness. Emotionally, Ajna deals with clarity on an intuitive level.

Chakra05.gif
Vishuddha, the Throat chakra is depicted as a silver crescent within a white circle, with 16 light or pale blue, or turquoise petals.

Vishuddha may be understood as relating to communication and growth through expression. This chakra is paralleled to the thyroid, a gland that is also in the throat and which produces thyroid hormone, responsible for growth and maturation.

Physically, Vishuddha governs communication, emotionally it governs independence, mentally it governs fluent thought, and spiritually, it governs a sense of security.

Chakra04.gif
Anahata, the Heart chakra is symbolised by a circular flower with twelve vermillion, or green petals. Within it is a yantra of 2 intersecting triangles, forming a star of David, symbolising a union of the male and female.


Anahata is related to the thymus,located in the chest. The thymus is an element of the immune system as well as being part of the endocrine system. It is the site of maturation of the T cells responsible for fending off disease and may be adversely affected by stress. . Anahata is related to the colours green or pink.

Key issues involving Anahata involve complex emotions, compassion, tenderness, unconditional love, equilibrium, rejection and well-being.

Physically Anahata governs circulation, emotionally it governs unconditional love for the self and others, mentally it governs passion, and spiritually it governs devotion.
 
Chakra03.gif
Manipura, the Solar Plexus chakra, is symbolised by a downward pointing triangle with ten petals.

Manipura is related to the metabolic and digestive systems. They play a valuable role in digestion, the conversion of food matter into energy for the body.

The colour that corresponds to Manipura is yellow. Key issues governed by Manipura are issues of personal power, fear, anxiety, opinion-formation, introversion, and transition from simple or base emotions to complex.

Physically, Manipura governs digestion, mentally it governs personal power, emotionally it governs expansiveness, and spiritually, all matters of growth.

Chakra02.gif
Swadhisthana, the Sacral chakra, is symbolized by a white lotus within which is a crescent moon, with six vermillion, or orange petals.

The Sacral Chakra is located in the sacrum (hence the name) and is considered to correspond to the testes or the ovaries that produce the various sex hormones involved in the reproductive cycle.

Swadisthana is also considered to be related to, more generally, the genitourinary system and the adrenals. The key issues involving Swadisthana are relationships, violence, addictions, basic emotional needs, and pleasure. Physically, Swadisthana governs reproduction, mentally it governs creativity, emotionally it governs joy, and spiritually it governs enthusiasm.


Chakra01.gif
Muladhara, the base or root chakra is represented as a yellow square, with 4 red petals.


Muladhara is related to instinct, security, survival and also to basic human potentiality. This center is located in the perineum, which is the region between the genital and the anus. Although no endocrine organ is placed here, it is said to relate to the gonads and the adrenal medulla, responsible for the fight-or-flight response when survival is under threat. There is a muscle located in this region that controls ejaculation in the sexual act of the human male. A parallel is charted between the sperm cell and the ovum where the genetic code lies coiled and the kundalini.

Muladhara is symbolized by a lotus with four petals and the colour red. Key issues involve sexuality, lust and obsession. Physically, Muladhara governs sexuality, mentally it governs stability, emotionally it governs sensuality, and spiritually it governs a sense of security

Try a Chakra test to see how open your Chakra's are. Be as honest as possible. This is not by far the most accurate test and by lying you can get results that you want to get. At the end of the day, the best way is to communicate with your soul and energise your chakras.

How do you recharge your batteries? Basically, meditate and connect with the power of your soul and the power of your soul is going to recharge those batteries and power them right up so that you have a bright and beautiful future.

In my next blog, I will go back to some basic steps and exercises to still your mind as well as relax your mind and body for peaceful meditation. Then I will also write about clear feeling, clear seeing and clear hearing or clairsentience, clairvoyance and clairaudience.

Take care and be well.

The language of the soul

Five senses are relatively easy for us and during the golden ages of humans, there were many more senses which we now just refer to as sixth sense, but there were more than just six.

The five senses that we are familiar with are sight (ophthalmoception), hearing (audioception), taste (gustaoception), smell (olfacoception), and touch (tactioception)

But over time, as humans moved away from being pure hunters and gatherers and started inventing tools, then machinery, we started losing our other senses.

The cave dwellers had many more senses like intuition, telepathy, extrasensory perception, illusion, inter sensory feeling and many others. There are many people out there that are already clairsentience - knowing, clairvoyant - inner vision, clairaudience - inner hearing.

Can we get these back? Is it possible?

Of course it is, what did I say yesterday? Nothing is impossible.

Recently, I have started talking to my guardian, started getting messages from God, even started speaking to angels and other guardians and I have also started speaking with my pets. Yes, call me crazy but that's just because you are jealous and I do not really care. But if you want to learn, then let's start and continue reading.

Every one of us possesses the spiritual ability to become consciously aware o our soul's senses and these include all the senses.  We all have the natural capacity to tap into our intuitive psychic abilities.

Opening the door to all our other senses is really exciting, enlightening and life changing experience. It has changed mine, and it will yours too.

Your soul will guide you, your consciousness will expand, you will start being aware of things that are buried deep within you, you would open yourself to senses that you were not even aware existed.

This awareness will bring you real happiness, joy, love, health, forgiveness and life and soul meaning.

But to start, you must believe and you must know deep within yourself that you already have these tools. As a spiritual divine soul, you already possess unlimited abilities, you just need to awaken it.


One thing we are all born with is intuition. There has always been a time where you would have had a hunch or a gut feel or some instinct.

Intuition is the language of the soul. Sometimes you will just feel it.

We are born aware, with a deep sense of inner knowing, this is our greatest gifts. This is what keeps us connected to our higher selves, the Universe, the Divine spirit, God.

Our intuition is working and speaking to us all the time but sometimes we are not aware. But if I look at my Lil furry boy, I know he is well aware of his intuition.

Have you ever though of someone you may not have heard of and suddenly you see the person out of the blue?

Have you had a hunch to do something and not do it and then regret it?

Do you sometimes meet someone and you immediately have a strong feeling - either you like or dislike the person?

Have you watched something and know the outcome of it even before it finishes, be it a football match or some other situation?

Have you ever had dejavu where you felt like you had just gone through the same thing but at a different time?

So, intuitions are there, all the time.

Are you ready to prepare yourself to become who you really already are?

First, if possible, find an area that you can set aside just for you - to read, to meditate, to study or even to read my blog.

After you have a place where you will not be disturbed, switch off everything - hand phones, computers, music, any other electronic devices. This is to start with, eventually you may be fine with some of these things. Clear the place of any major clutter.

Just have a comfortable chair and a comfortable table. If you like, you can have some flowers, or candles or incense or crystals and pictures of your angels, guardians, God but these are not necessary.

My special area has crystals to cover the major chakras and the five elements, it has my guardians and every now and then I would light a candle.

Use this special place mainly for some quiet time, meditation, personal development and slowly you will infuse the place with positive energy and it will have a feeling of warmth and peace.

Find a good time for you to meditate and try to do about 20 minutes to start with every day. Look forward to your meditation rather than a chore. Think of it as a special time with your soul, with your guardians, with Divine.

Also, by fixing a time, you are honoring a commitment and training your mind and through continued practice you will develop inner guidance from your soul and it will become steadily easier to meditate.

And remember your journal, keep it close by and when your intuition and psychic thoughts come in through meditation, remember to write it down after meditation.

Write down when you feel an unexpected thought or impression coming into your mind that seems to be not your normal routine.

Record the coincidences and synchronicities that seem to run in your life all the time.

Jot down numbers that keep showing up in your life, whether licence plates, phone numbers or dates.

Write down your dreams or any images and emotions that you remember.

Draw any pictures or symbols that come to your mind.

Just setting up a space will help your consciousness expand and develop your soul senses.

After some practice, you will need to still your mind and stop all the chatter that goes on.

During the early stages of starting to meditate, your mind will continue to chatter and even wander off. Do not worry about it. It is perfectly normal in the beginning.

But over time, let your thoughts slow down and the chatter to shut up and you will soon begin to have more clarity and focus. When your mind is still, it will become easier to find that place of absolute stillness where psychic and intuitive information flow freely.

Start, just do it.

Take care and be well.

Power of visualisation

In the previous blog, I wrote about my affirmations. Do you have affirmations? How long have you been saying those affirmations?

Some people say that you have to have affirmations and truly believe in those affirmations for them to work.

Sometimes, I feel, this is not entirely necessarily so. For example, if you made a mistake typing on a computer, what would you do?
You will likely press the backspace or delete button and delete the mistake.

Would you think and wonder why you made that mistake, do some soul searching to find out why such a mistake occurred, come out with a plan to not make the mistake again and when pressing the delete button, do it with conviction?

Most likely, you are not going to do the above, but just press delete button without thinking too much about it.

So, do the same for you affirmations. Start with a simple one like "I am sorry. Please forgive me. I love you. I thank you." Just do it.


Then slowly, start visualising your affirmations. The power of visualisation is immense. But you must start using your senses to visualise, imagine using all your five senses - seeing, sensing, hearing, tasting, smelling - your affirmations.

For example, if you just say you want to be rich, it really does not mean anything. So start playing a video of a life you want to live, hear the sounds around you, what would your home and car smell like, what do you see around you, etc.

Now complete this perfect visualisation of your affirmation or your wish and include you emotion - what emotions are you feeling - joy, happiness etc.

When I had an accident, I was a little afraid and nervous to get back into the car. When I did, I was driving like a 98-year old nervous and jittery person, the fastest I went was 50km/h. Then I thought to myself, "Nil, you are a great driver, You have driven many years, nearly 20 years without any accident or even harming another being inclusive of never hitting a poor dog or cat on the road. Trust and know that you and the car are always safe."

And soon enough, I was back to my normal confident driving. I am now a better driver than I ever as because I am now more conscious about my surrounding, physical and metaphysical.

Some of us start Monday morning and think, "Oh Monday, it's going to be another long week ahead." And sure enough, by the time Friday comes, we will be exhausted and tired because we have already programmed this.

Some people go on vacation, let's say a 10 day vacation and a the end of their 1st day of vacation will say, "Oh, there is now only 9 days left."

Some people just visualise certain negative thoughts and as such they manifest the negativity.

Life follows thought, and we need to create positive thoughts and life will follow these thoughts.

I am no angel and I too sometimes create negative thoughts. Although I am changing and constantly saying my affirmations, some negative thought creeps into my bloody head and often I have to smack myself on the head.

It is not easy especially when one is surrounded by so much of negativity and judgemental people, but it can be done.

While one person may not change the world, one person can change themselves and this will be enough to see changes in the world they live in.

It is always important to believe. People say that not everything is possible, some things are impossible. Again, as I have said in a previous blog, nothing is impossible, even the word reads I m possible, and yes, you are possible, I am possible, and as such, anything is possible.

So, do not believe in the impossible because there is nothing that is impossible. Believe in everything and make everything possible.

Thank you.

Gratitude is very important. Say thank you. Say a prayer of thanks. Be thankful. Show your gratitude.

When your divine self starts connecting you the the higher Divine, be grateful for this, listen to the messages of your guardians, ascended masters and angels and God, and say thank you.

Again, I am a big proponent of these 4 things, "I am sorry. Please forgive me. I love you. Thank you."

I love you.

Thank you.


Take care and be well.

Affirmations of love, gratitude, forgiveness

People talk about affirmations, but what are affirmations? Words have the power to inspire, heal, and transform. They can have a positive affect and can be hurtful. To affirm simply means to make firm.

They are a wonderful complementary tool. There more you affirm positive statements of love, gratitude and even forgiveness, the closer you get to your soul and Divine Source.

Following are a long list of affirmations that I use. Some are sourced from Ho'oponopono and some from other sources. Some are modified to my requirements.

Write your own, or use some below which you find useful. Meditate, visualise, write your own affirmations.

I am the "I".
I come forth from the void into the Light,
I am that emptiness,
That hollowness beyond all Consciousness,
The "I", the "Id", the "All".
I draw my bow of rainbows across the waters,
The continuum of minds with matters.
I am the invisible, untouchable breeze,
the undefinable atom of creation,
I am the "I".

Divine Creator, the Father, Mother, Son as one:
I, All of my family, friends, relatives and ancestors,
From the beginning of time to the present,
If we have in any way
Through thoughts, deeds, words, or actions;
Caused any stress, or wrong
Transgressed or trespassed against the "I" within us or outside of us
For this and for all times,
Then we ask humbly, humbly, humbly, for forgiveness,
And we ask that if there is any unwanted negativity
Any unwanted energy of any kind
That you please cleanse, purify, release, and transmute
Any and all of these unwanted energies of any kind
To Pure Divine Light.
We ask that you sever and cut all aka cords,
And fill in all of those empty spaces within
With Pure Divine Light as well.
In the name of the Divine Creator
We ask that this be Done,
and it is Done!
As we release and set free,
We are in turn released and set free.

Divine Creator:
The Father, Mother, Son as One;
I, All of my family, friends, relatives, and ancestors,
From the beginning of time to the present
We wish to ask humbly, humbly, humbly,
For a way of Ho'oponopono
Between myself from the center of my being
To the very furthest extent of my being and consciousness,
And to everyone, every thing, place and all past and present karma, issues,
And all of our families, friends, relatives, and ancestors,
From the beginning of time to the present.
If there are any unwanted negativities
Or unwanted energies of any kind
Having to do with our relationships or with this matter;
Or with any of the other people, places, things, and karma,
Which we have either knowingly or unknowingly
Omitted from this Ho'oponopono;
Then please cleanse, purify, release, and transmute
any and all of these negativities
Any and all of these unwanted energies of any kind
To Pure Divine Light.
We ask that you sever and cut all Aka Cords,
And fill in those empty spaces With Pure Divine Light as well.
In the name of the Divine Creator:
The Father, Mother, Son as One;
We ask that this be Done a
And it is Done.
As we release and set free,
We are in turn
Released and set free.

Divine Creator:
The Father, Mother, Son as One;
I, All of my family, friends, relatives, and ancestors,
From the beginning of time
To the present
We wish to ask now
For The Pillar of "I" and a Bath of Pure Divine Light.
From the top of our heads to the tip of our toes,
Please bathe me
And all those people, places things and karma
Which we have mentioned in this Ho'oponopono Pule
With the four divine colors of Light . . .
First Indigo Blue Light seven times . . .
Then Emerald Green Light seven times . . .
Then Ice Blue Light seven times . . .
And lastly Lemon to White Light
The color of sea foam in Sunlight
Pure Divine Light seven times.
Please extend a Band of Gold Light
Around each and every atom of each and every
Person, place, thing, or karma included in this process.
Please extend it both above and below
To form a golden sphere of light
With all of the colors of the "I" working inside
In the way of the "I",

The soul of I use the most brilliant light to dissolve
all negative karmic cords, promises, vows, commitments
from all past lives and the present life
with every other souls
which are detrimental for my highest good

The Peace of "I".
Peace be with You,
All My peace.
The Peace that is "I",
The Peace that is "I Am".
The Peace for Always,
Now, and Forever, and Evermore.
My Peace I give to You,
My Peace I leave with You.
Not the World's Peace,
But only My Peace.
The Peace of "I"

May the goodness in me
acknowledge the goodness in you.
May the goodness in you
acknowledge the goodness in me.

I am love
I love with an open heart
Abundance of love flows in me, through me, and from me.
I trust my intuition  and myself.
I am a beautiful expression of life.
I now notice and acknowledge when my inner voice speaks to me.
I choose to bring positive energy of love and gratitude into my day, and my life.
I attract all that I need in my life, health, wealth, love, gratitude and forgiveness.
All I attract is for my highest good.
I am strong, balanced, here and now.
I am love.

I am soul.
I have unlimited potential.
I now step into my power, and I appreciate all of me.
The Divine Source flows in me, through me, and from me.
I can achieve anything I want.
I now know myself as I really am.
I own my power.
I am power.
I am soul.

I love you. I thank you. I am sorry. Please forgive me.

Take care and be well.

Connecting

Every day, life has its own unique way of showing miracles. Breathing, being healthy, turning a year older as I did yesterday .... all miracles in my book.

The star above is called α UMi. Not familiar? How about Polaris? Still not familiar. How about North Star? It lies nearly in a direct line with the axis of the Earth's rotation "above" the North Pole—the north celestial pole—Polaris stands almost motionless in the sky, and all the stars of the Northern sky appear to rotate around it. Therefore, it makes an excellent fixed point from which to draw measurements for celestial navigation and for astrometry.

Sometimes we need to pay attention to get directions. Many people know about the North Star, but few really know how to detect it or how to find it. Once you find it, even if you are lost, you will find direction and will not be walking in circles around and round.

There is so much of information overload in our current world vying for your attention that sometimes we miss out the subtle hints or soft knocks from God and Universe which can be missed when we are too busy paying attention to things that do not really matter.

The Divine Source always wants to work with us in partnership, but it is up to us to welcome and greet God and the energies of the Universe and our guardians in order to secure a good connection.

Coincidences
So-called coincidence or synchronicities are clear signs the Divine is knocking on the door, but are you too afraid to open it?

Sometimes we do not pay attention enough that we get a loud bang ... like I did when my car turned upside down and then my world turned the right side up. My world was already upside down and I was correcting it slowly but with the car going upside down, the loud bang, and coming out unscratched. I just realised, my world turned the right side up.

Have you ever been torn between staying in a job or accepting a new job or just unclear and torn between a decision and as you are driving by, suddenly you see on a bus or a billboard the answer you are looking for. This is the Divine coincidence. Answers that come to you in one form or another.

Sometimes you get an answer after a lot of soul searching, sometimes through coincidences like above, sometimes through meditation, dreams and sometimes when you are grateful and full of love, you may get connection to the answers that you seek from the Divine source, from the angels and guardians.

How do you start tapping into these coincidences, these synchronicities? Simple, pay attention, keep noticing.
  • Pay attention to meaningful coincidences, the more you pay attention, the more you will notice them and the more they will multiply.
  • Pay attention to people you run into unexpectedly, listen to what is being said in your conversation with that person and what the meaning or answer could be for you in there.
  • Let go, tell your angels and guardians and tell God, okay, show me, guide me, let me be aware and let me act to your answer and guidance, then pay attention.
  • Continue working on the journal I spoke about, and pay attention to the journal. Re-read.
  • Believe, be positive and pay attention. A negative attitude will just shut down the experience.
 Answers in your dreams
Our sub-conscious mind and soul is always speaking to us, but sometimes while we are awake and have so much distractions, we just do not pay attention to the messages.

So, dreams are one of the many ways that the soul can reach out and communicate with you when you are not distracted by out worldly stuff.

All of us dream every night even though many of us do not remember our dreams. Some of us remember our dreams and we get up, but in no time, we forget.

In the Power of the Soul, there is a story of a dream that is shared by John Holland. In summary, this women had this dream about thousands of ants crawling on her best terry-cloth towels in the bathroom. And only two words stood out Ant and Terry. She had a Aunt named Terry and immediately she called her mom to see if the mom had heard from her aunt recently. The mom had not and called other relatives who too had not. They immediately called a neighbour who went to the house and once there was no answer, they called the police. The police found the aunt sprawled on the bathroom floor after having suffered from a stroke two days earlier. Thankfully, she survived.

Keep a dream journal with your journal. Write what you remember. It may be sending you some message.

I personally had a dream yesterday around two in the morning and could not sleep after the message from the dream, so I continued reading a book, I even watched MU beat Chelsea in the Champions League which I rarely watch especially since it is at three in the morning.

Have you heard of dream incubation? Something like the movie inception but not manipulating others but just planting a seed so that you get an answer in your dream.

I found a neat write up about dream incubation which you can view by clicking the link.

But basically, "dream incubation is a creative thinking technique that uses your dreams to come up with creative breakthroughs. Basically you set the scene for your inner dreaming mind to do your creative thinking for you. This is really neat if you can summon enough discipline at the end of the day and first thing in the morning to do what you need to do to incubate dreams."

"Dream incubation is a marvellous tool in your creative thinking toolkit. Get over your initial resistance and persist with it long enough to reap the immense creative rewards that creative dream incubation can deliver to you. Your phenomenal creative mind is waiting like an immense computer. You just need to switch it on with dream incubation."

Before you go to bed, write down a concern in your journal. Read it a few times to yourself before you drift to sleep.

Ask any question, maybe, "What is the next move in my career?" or "How can I improve my relationship with my father?"

And try to wake up gently without an alarm jolting you awake and try to write down anything that you remember on your dream journal.

You may not remember anything initially but keep doing it for a few days, believe, keep an open mind, do it for the highest good.

Dreams are very symbolic, so expect that it may not be an answer in words but in symbolism. Draw out the symbol, if unfamiliar with a certain symbol, Google or Wiki it or ask someone.

Be positive, pay attention, and always have love and gratitude in your heart and mind and do it for the highest good.

Take care and be well.

Charting the course

Many people still treat their souls as a belonging, something they own. Like my handbag, my car, my soul, my house.

For quite sometime now, I have oft repeated, I am soul, soul that is I has a body, a physical being that is temporary. I rarely ever say my soul, I usually say my body and soul that is I. I am soul.

Once you acknowledge and follow your soul, you will embark on this wonderful journey deep within yourself and you will discover everything you need to feel, to think from within. It will be a beautiful safe place where you will be able to tap on the wisdom of the soul that is you.

You will be able to use the deep wisdom to become aware and develop extraordinary understanding, love, gratitude, compassion, acceptance, healing. And you will be able to use this for your current life, however long that may be. The knowledge of your soul is infinite.

You will establish a relationship with the divine soul of yours and will receive many insights from within your soul, your guardians and even God as the divinity of your soul is the same DNA and connected to that of God.

But how would you capture your spiritual progress and how would you make use of this progress and record your lessons?

I recommend you keep a journal. I have been told many times to keep a journal, and I realise while I do not keep a hand written journal which I should, I have been keeping a blog journal and sharing it.

When I write my blog, the inspiration comes from within, the world stops for a while around me, everything remains still like a clock that has stopped ticking and words just flow out of me.

By recording thoughts, the sheer action of doing so, provides a clearer picture of what is happening with you.

As you grow as a soul, you will gain memories, be inspired, learn things, hear stories and your prayers will be answered. Like minded people will start to enter your life as your raise your soul connection and vibrations. Your goals in life and purpose will change, you will become more intuitive and spiritual, you will become clear to whom you truly are.

A journal will become your best friend to record all these as your learn and see it. It will also allow you to have a few moments alone with yourself, your soul that is you.

Some tips for writing a journal include:-
  • Write your journal around the same time everyday and preferably in the same area. I usually tend to write mine around noon in front of my computer with my dog by my side. But if you prefer, you can write it in the morning as you listen to the birds in your garden, or in the evening. 
  • Take your journal in your travels and write people you meet, places you go, experiences and feelings you have. When I was in some parts of the world, like South Africa, I had a strong connection with the elephants in the safari and I truly felt that I was there before, not in a good sense, but I was there before. I discovered few years later that I, the soul, have been there before and now I have changed and been there again in a different light.
  • Your journal is yours alone. Share it if you want and do not share if you do not feel like sharing.
  • Nothing and no lesson or vision or thought is too small or too insignificant to write. Everything counts. If you see Ultraman in your thoughts, write it down.
  • Record as many happy memories as you can. What made you happy that day. Rather than writing angry or sad memories. Happy memories will make you more inspired.
What can I write?
  1. Everything in summary. How your day went, what made you happy, did you learn something about yourself, any new insight ...
  2. Write your goals and desires.
  3. Write affirmations that really inspire you or make your own affirmations. Mine include Mornah's prayers which I say daily. "Dear Divine Creator, Father, Mother, Son as one; If I, my family, relatives and ancestors have offended you, your family, relatives and ancestors in thoughts, words, deeds and actions from the beginning of our creation to the present, we humbly ask for you forgiveness. Let this cleanse, purify, release, cut all negative memories, blocks, energies and vibrations, and transmute these unwanted energies into pure light ... And it is done. Thank you. I love you. I am sorry. Please forgive me."
  4. Include your current prayers and also record your prayers which have been answered previously.
  5. Put in inspirational quotes or words of advice someone may have given you or even some insight you may have got from your soul.
  6. Make note of new findings ... sometimes when you read back in the past, you may have new discoveries, write it down.
  7. Write what you are grateful of right now, anything as simple as being grateful for being alive and healthy.
  8. Add any symbols, drawings or images you find inspirational. I doodle quite a bit in meetings as well as when I am generally taking notes and I always put down the main Reiki symbols.
  9. Keep track of what you feel is intuitive and psychic impression.
Everyone lately seems to be interested in their life purpose. What is purpose of my life in this world, what am I meant to be doing, why am I here, where am I going etc.

But as I have said, physical being is finite, your soul which is eternal has a purpose, what is the soul purpose is more pertinent and powerful than what is your current life purpose.

The soul purpose is very simple - to be all that you can be and to live your lives in alignment with the highest good.

We should be less selfish and acknowledge, impact, and help each other as much as we can with our unique gifts, talents and abilities. I do this through my writing and hope one day I will reach millions of readers daily. Currently I reach maybe a couple of hundred, so it is a long way to go and I am confident one day I will reach there, with your help, love and gratitude.

There is a purpose for everyone and as much as you may ignore it, it is there calling you and therefore you will always go back yearning for it. I started as a journalist in my career and now after 20 years of working am doing something in Information Technology and managing services and service levels. This is not my calling nor passion. And my calling has always been writing, I write well, better than I speak most of the time. This is my calling and soon, I will have books out there hopefully which you will be inspired by.

We are all born with special gifts, talents and abilities. You may not know what they are yet but maybe with some work and effort, you will find out.

Paramhansa Yogananda said, "Life is to be lived. If you live abundantly and use your talents and energies to the limit every day, you will develop ever-greater power and understanding of your full potential as a soul. There is no end to the life, love, power and wisdom that could be yours if you start using what you already have."

What is your soul purpose, what are you inspired by?

Close your eyes and think whom you admire the most, what are their qualities that you admire. Now write it down on one side of the paper.

Now close your eyes and think of someone that maybe admires you and why do you feel they admire you. Write down the traits that they admire you.

Compare both the traits and you will likely find many similarities in the traits of people you admire and your traits of which others admire.

Now take another piece of paper and write down the following things as honestly as possible:
  1.  What am I passionate about?
    • For me it is writing and cooking
  2. What did I enjoy as a child?
    • I enjoyed reading and somewhat imagining stories up in my head and creating my own comic books.
  3. What did I imagine at a young age that I wanted to be when I grew up?
