- 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.

Are you seeing things that are moving when everything is still?
Like the eye illusion above, when you focus on one area, the other area seems to move.
Are you hearing things that others do not hear?
Sometimes, I hear a high pitch consistent sound, and I am sure others have too, it is not really explainable although scientist will try to explain it.
Do you sense something before it happens? I can sense when rain will stop, I can generally predict when rain will stop. I cannot predict when it will start but I know when it will stop. There are times I will be driving and it is raining and I have willed or just thought for the rain to stop before I reach the destination. And by coincidence or faith or power within me, the rain stops.
Why does sometimes, something that happens in a mere second have a playback time of minutes in your head, like a slow motion movie? This happens when I think of my accident, the actual time of the accident would have been mere seconds, maybe 5-10 seconds at the most but when I play back the movie in my head, I could likely make a feature length movie with special effects and all. Okay, I am exaggerating a little but the 5-10 seconds sure stretches to 5-10 minutes.
There are things that science can explain and there are things that science cannot.
How does my lil fury boy know that I am coming back home even 5 minutes before I have reached home or how does he sense that I am in trouble or I am sad?
There are senses beyond the 5 senses and there is science beyond the maths, physics, chemistry and biology that we know.
Even our science has proven some interesting experiments.
Through the 1990′s, Dr. Masaru Emoto performed a series of experiments observing the physical effect of words, prayers, music and environment on the crystalline structure of water.
Emoto hired photographers to take pictures of water after being exposed to the different variables and subsequently frozen so that they would form crystalline structures.
The results were nothing short of remarkable. I will let the following pictures tell the story:
Normal tap water
Normal tap water after prayer and affirmation
After stating the following statement repeatedly to the water: "You are pure water"
After saying "You are polluted"
After saying "Adolf Hitler"
After saying "Love and Gratitude"
After saying "You make me sick"
After saying "Thank you"
This experiment was done with water.
Water molecules are Hydrogen and Oxygen - pretty much all the air around us.
And we have been told that our human bodies consist between 60-75% water.
So, imagine what difference it would make just to say "Thank you. I love you. Please forgive me." to yourself and saying it in your mind repeatedly as you think of yourself and when you think of others.
Imagine just saying "Thank You and I love you" to the air that you breath, the food that you eat, the computer that you use, the water that you drink and take a bath with, to each and everything you do in life.
You will create pure and beautiful crystalline formations which can only be good for all of us.
So, when you pick up the newspapers today and see something stupid that your government is doing or some sad news, just send "Thank you and I love you" and do not get too bogged down with the negatives.
Thank you. I love you.
Take care and be well.

Many people say true love should hurt for it to be true love. Even the song by Nazareth (coincidentally named after Jesus of Nazareth) goes Love hurts, love scars, love wounds and marks; Any heart not tough or strong enough to take a lot of pain, take a lot of pain; Love is like a cloud holds a lot of rain.
I do not believe this one bit. Love does not hurt. Love only heals.
What hurts is when people use Ego in the name of Love to hurt others.
I believe what the good books and advice from Thirukural which states:
One who has no love in his heart will try to possess everything for himself.
One who has love in his heart is ready to sacrifice everything including his own body for the benefit of others.
The ignorant say that love leads one to Dharma only; but love is a defense against evil too and love helps one to get out of vice also.
The life of a man who has no love in his heart is as futile as the existence and flourishing of a withered tree in a barren land.
The human body which is sustained by love is truly alive, where as the human body which is not sustained by love is mere assembly of bones covered with skin.
Science usually cannot explain what it does not see, but this does not mean it does not exist. What science does not see includes beauty, devotion, faith, inspiration, nobility, compassion, empathy, fate, intuition and love itself.
Are these fictions and illusions just because science does not see?
Love with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.
When we experience the unconditional nature of love, we open to a view of unlimited healing power.
When you just say, "I Love You" it opens up a whole new form of healing. Do it internally.
Love , gratitude and forgiveness ... I have been talking about this for quite some time now.
When I do my Reiki , I do it for the highest good with Love, Gratitude and Forgiveness.
In my meditation yesterday, I received some interesting news, not necessarily good, but interesting.
And all I can say is thank you, and I love you.
When someone crosses you or in a jam someone cuts into your lane, why get angry? Just say, thank you, I love you.
When someone says something you do not agree with, say thank you and I love you.
When someone hurts you, do not let them, and say thank you and I love you. And you will not hurt because love will heal you.
Before you even answer a phone or go speak to someone, just say thank you, I love you, please forgive me and talk to the person.
When you are sick and tired of the politics of this country, just say thank you and I love you to yourself.
My house gets the Star newspaper daily. I used to work for the paper nearly 20 years ago and I have not read it in many many years. I do not like to read newspapers anymore. The only section of the Star that I read is Section 2 and I read the comics.
Every now and then I will turn to the sports pages and go to the obituaries. When I see the obituaries, all I say is God Bless You, thank you and I love you.
On a rare occasion, I will skim through the headlines of the paper and all I say is thank you and I love you to the headlines. I am generally sick and tired of the negative news, so the only way to heal myself is to love myself unconditionally.
People say you should not love so easily. Again I disagree, cause love does not hurt, and it only heals ... I do not have a problem to give love everyone, to every soul living eternally.
Love does not expire, love does not have conditions, love does not end, love is in abundance .... there is enough to go around.
Love with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.
Take care and be well.

Recently wifey and I saw the latest Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides where the pirates are searching for the legendary Fountain of Youth.
According to the wiki entry, the Fountain of Youth is a legendary spring that reputedly restores the youth of anyone who drinks of its waters. Tales of such a fountain have been recounted across the world for thousands of years, appearing in writings by Herodotus, the Alexander romance, and the stories of Prester John. Stories of a similar waters were also evidently prominent among the indigenous peoples of the Caribbean during the Age of Exploration, who spoke of the restorative powers of the water in the mythical land of Bimini.
The legend became particularly prominent in the 16th century, when it became attached to the Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León, first Governor of Puerto Rico. According to an apocryphal story that features a combination of New World and Eurasian elements, Ponce de León was searching for the Fountain of Youth when he traveled to what is now Florida in 1513. Since then, the fountain has been frequently associated with Florida.
Now, I know most of you do not believe in the fountain of youth and you do not believe in immortality. But I tell you what. I have found the fountain of youth and you can be immortal.
We have been programmed that we are not immortal and everyone is mortal. That everyone is going to die.
But let me tell you a secret, I am not going to die. I have found the fountain of youth and I am now immortal.
Want to know the secret? Do you want to be immortal? Or would you rather die, be forgotten and just be remembered by a dash on your obituary i.e. John Doe; 1969 - 2010.
You see, my life force, the soul of I, it is eternal and it is infinite.
The soul that is I is my life force, and what runs my life and the thing is, it is forever.
The only purpose of my soul is to be close to Divine.
My soul does not have a dash.
Nil Timbadia is but just a temporary vessel that this soul of mine is managing and navigating currently.
I have had many vessels, I have been in many dimensions, I am a soul that has travelled far and wide. I am a soul that is as old as the Divine, living forever closely as part of the energy and life force that is in the same DNA as the Divine.
I do not fear this vessels mortality, every vessel has a life span. When you buy a car, and you maintain the car regularly, if you are lucky, it will last you for 10 maybe even 20 or 30 years but eventually the car to will die.
When you buy a television, those days, mine lasted 10 years and then it blew.
Shoes tend to last shorter lifespans.
A ship may even sink on its first voyage.
A body will last, if well maintained even for hundreds of years ... that is if the soul that is managing it wants to remain in the vessel for that long.
People in the so called golden ages lived for hundreds even thousands of years. Abraham's wife Sarah apparently gave birth to their 1st child when she was 99 and she lived many many more years after that.
This is the last trip of my soul in a earthly human form or at least my soul, my guardian and the Divine tells me so. I still have many things to be done in this lifetime and as the saying goes, my life only started at 40.
Before 40, I was a child, still growing up, still learning. At 40, I became an adult, ready to move on and learn at an accelerated rate and help people. At 40, my thinking changed. At 40, I became alive, and I started to learn of my immortality.
Fountain of youth, immortality - that I am, the soul that is I is immortal, infinite and eternal.
I am blessed. I thank you and I love you. May you start believing on your eternal immortality too.
Take care and be well.

Ecclesiastes 3:21. Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?
Peter 2:4. For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment.
Is Heaven above and Hell below?
Some verses of the Bible seem to say so. In Jainism, there are many different realms of Hell.
But is Heaven above? And Hell below?
Literally, many of us have been brought up to believe this and while we may not entirely believe this as adults, it has become part of our programing.
When we are young, we remember what we learn. Like our A,B,C's, we have been programmed to believe that Heaven is above and Hell is below.
While I generally was brought up not believing in Heaven and Hell per say being brought up as a Jain which believes in reincarnation. I was however been brought up to believe Nirvana or Moksha is above and if we are not good, we are reborn.
Because of this above and below programming, we have lost our connection to our Mother, Mother Earth basically.
What is above? It is sky, Father Sky. Whether you are in north or south, east or west, equator or somewhere else, if you look above, you will see Father Sky, the Universe and where the Divine resides.
But what is below? If below is Hell, then Hell is earth.
And we all know Earth is not hell. But we have been programmed that Hell is below us. And thus we have lost our connection with Mother Earth.
Because of this lost of connection, we have lost a lot of gifts that have been intended for us.
We have to be connected to what is below us again, we have to be connected back to Mother Earth and also strengthen our connection with the Universe above us.
These alignment of above and below will align us to God and Mother Earth.
In thousands of years of misalignment with earth, we have lost the ability to listen to it, listen to the things on it and to love it. As such, we have been destroying it. We have been killing our Mother slowly, and literally making it the Hell we know about.
Our ancestors thousands of years ago were connected to Mother Earth and Father Sky together. They remained aligned and they could communicate to the angels and guardians above as well as communicate with the animals and plants and other beings that were all part of the Earth.
All we have done is slowly destroy it, through killing, through destroying and through our arrogance.
There is not Hell below us, we are creating the Hell ourselves.
Let's treat Our Mother here on Earth as well as we respect Our Father in Heaven, Sky, Universe.
It is never too late and you alone can make a difference. Just listen to earth, connect to the earth, listen to the trees and the leaves, listen to the fishes and the animals, listen to the grass and the weeds.
Connect back, use your divine soul's ability and connect back to both Mother and Father. We all have the same Mother and same Father. So, my brothers and sisters, let us cherish and connect back with both Mother and Father, seek their forgiveness, be thankful for all they have provided to us and give them love, infinite love.
Take care and be well.

For a long time, I had sold my soul to the devil. I will explain exactly what I mean in this blog.
But like the cartoon above states but slightly different. God held on to the intellectual property.
And thus, my contract with the devil has been rescinded, cancelled, torn apart .... and now my divine soul only belongs to Divine God.
The last few years, it has been about money. It has been about pride. It has been about being better, having more.
The daily grind. The rat race.
Sold my soul to the devil. Soul had a binding contract with the devil.
Until last year, when I started on my quest. On this wonderful spiritual quest to rediscover my spirituality. I am a spiritual person now, I am not religious. Religion is to control people, to get people to do some things which they themselves do not really understand.
The spiritual journey was internal, to find my divine soul and in the process find the Divine God, through his many guardians and angels.
I have found out many things. I am now in tune.
All these years prior to last year and now, I was on a misguided and wrong quest.
I was looking to find out what was my soul contract for this life. What was in the contract and what was my soul supposed to be, do and destined for.
Then a breakthrough happened. Contracts are binding, like a legal document, and the only person that wants you to be bound is the devil.
I have many lawyer friends but maybe this is where the jokes of lawyers being like devil comes from.
Anyway, we do not need to find our soul contract. That is irrelevant. In fact, having a contract is binding.
And the soul purpose is to be free from all binds. Our soul purpose is to be as close to the Divine as possible.
Luckily enough, Divine God has held on to the intellectual properties of our souls and as soon as you tear up the contract and start living the purpose, you will free yourself from all binds, all contracts.
And God's purpose is simple .... Love completely, Forgive easily and be Grateful infinitely.
A book by Dr Darren Weissman talks about Infinite Love and Gratitude. I think the other element is Forgiveness.
Ho'ponopono talks about Love, Forgiveness and Gratitude. I love you. I am sorry. Please forgive me. I thank you.
So, due to living 41 years of my life living the soul contract, having sold my soul to the devil.
Now change happens. Life has a long way to go. And now is the time that I start to live the soul purpose.
And I thank all those who have helped me get on this right path after for a long time away from the right path. This is the road less travelled, but this is the right road.
I am thankful that God kept on to the intellectual properties which enabled me to break my soul contract.
Soul purpose, to be as close to the Divine. We, our divine souls are connected to the Higher Divine.
I am contented. Now, things I do, even earning money and buying things becomes for a purpose, for the soul's purpose. I am contented. I am happy. I have managed to cut the ties with the devil.
Take care and be well.

All my life, I have trudge along this road, many choices have been made for me.
But it is my life, in this current bodily form where my divine soul resides for the moment. And it is my choice with the guidance of the divine self, with the guidance of God and his guardians and angels ... to help me make these tough decisions and daily choices.
We all begin to make choices since we are young. Even as babies, we decide what we like to eat and what we will spit out.
When growing up, you choose to wear whatever clothes you put on.
Some of the daily choices do not require much thinking, and have become entrenched into the daily routine.
For me, get up in the morning, do the 3S (Shit, shave, shower), brush my teeth and put clothes on. You do not even have to really think of it.
But why do we find it so difficult to make real life choices.
Wherever I am right now at this very moment, I am here because I took myself here. Every decision I have made in this life and some even in my previous life has brought me to this point.
Life has its challenges, its suffering but it is the choices that I have made that lead to the challenges and the sufferings and it is the decisions that I made while facing the challenges and suffering is what has brought me to this point in my life where there is no longer suffering but a clear sense and conscience of understanding.
There are many different roads that have been taken on the souls journey, many forked roads, many challenges that have been taken on my soul's journey.
Sometimes I have allowed people to influence or accelerate the journey and sometimes I have even allowed people to throw it completely off course. But in recent times, my awareness has increased enough that I know who are those helping me and who are those just waiting to throw me off the course.
It is only when I started taking responsibility for my life and the choices that I made that I began in to the power of my real divine self, my soul. It is only when I started making decisions for myself that I increased my own intuition.
Have no disillusions. I still ask for advice but I no longer accept advice blindly even if I solicited the advice. I ask myself if the decision I plan to make is the right decision and somehow the answer is always there.
By relying on my soul and my guardians, I am no longer a victim of circumstances and I have the will and power to change my own life.
It is always also my choice what kind of a day I want. I have been having bad and crappy days some days in the past week because I chose to have crappy days. I let a decision that was beyond my direct influence and reacted to that decision in not a positive way. If it was a decision within my control, it would have been easier. But some others made a decision that I was not qualified ... and they have the right to make that assumption. What I should have continued doing was make my own choice based on the outcome of theirs. I should have made my own choice to continue being happy and work out a proper exit strategy.
From today onwards, I want to get up in the morning smiling and making a decision as soon as I open my eyes that I am going to have a fabulous and happy day. I will start my day positive. And if any negative thoughts come my way, I will just turn it around into a positive. And mind you, our minds are not exactly like real magnets where 2 negatives make a positive. Our minds, two negatives just continue multiplying exponentially.
Anyway, by smiling and giving out positive vibes, there is bound for positive things to come to you.
Trusting my intuition, that feeling in my gut, that voice from my soul, from my guardian, from God has assisted me in making decisions.
I am using my intuition more and more, on a daily, hourly basis. When I have a choice to make, especially when the answer is just between two or three, I imagine myself taking the road of that particular decision. One at a time, I try each of the roads and feel intuitively which of the roads makes me feel good, makes it feel right ... and that is using my intuition to make decisions.
I have decided firmly that I am going to start teaching Reiki. I not have a place, I do not have students, I do not have the materials printed yet, I do not know when .... but I am changing all the do not to will ... I will have a place, I will have students, I will have materials printed, I will know when.
I also have started to listed t my heart. That pitter-patter. I just intuitively in my heart know whether a decision I make is good or it is not. I look beyond the surface and let my heart decide whether a person is good or not.
Yes, not everyone is good. Everyone can be good but that is a choice the have to make themselves. The serial acid splasher has obviously some issues ... no different from a rapist or a murderer and they are not good and they will not be forgiven easily but they can decide to change themselves. It is their life, their choice.
I have made some bad choices in my life as we all surely have. I learn from my mistakes and I do my best not to repeat the same bad choice or judgement again. I have made peace with the poor decisions from my past. And I will continue to make good decisions from now forth. I will choose wisely and my regrets will be few.
I am soul.
I have unlimited potential.
I know 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 am power, I am.
I pause and ask myself, my heart, my intuition, my soul before I act. The goodness in me acknowledges the goodness in all and may goodness in all acknowledge the goodness in me.
I am touching and improving myself and everything I do and every choice I make is mine alone but also in the highest good.
You, yes you, the person reading this ... The soul that is I loves you and thanks you.
Take care and be well.

Think about it. Even a drop of rain falls, filling up the lakes, rivers, streams and eventually back to the ocean and it vaporises and ends up in a cloud and becomes a drop of rain again.
Like a drop of rain, we are.
Like a stream flowing, we are.
Like a waterfall gushing down, we are.
Like the ocean, we are.
Like the vapor, we are.
Like the clouds filled with rain, we are.
We are simply passing through.
We are perpetually moving.
We are constantly evolving.
We are advancing with grace.
We are changing.
We are constantly moving.
We, the soul of you, the soul of I.
We are constantly on the move.
As a soul, you are constantly evolving and advancing with grace and humility on your way to somewhere. In each lifetime, you will absorb all its memories and emotions as well as unique personality into your soul. And the soul will eventually journey back to where you originated - the spirit world. Your soul does not have an end .... life is continuous.
Every decision you have made in your past life and every decision you have made in this life and every decision you will continue to make in the present and the future will be vital to your soul's journey in the future.
The soul know where the soul will go and the soul will guide and steer you in the direction that it needs to for the highest good. Just trust.
The soul of you is a powerful magnet continually drawing in the conditions that it needs in order to learn, thrive, evolve. Trust that your soul knows what is best as your journey unfolds. Slow down at times, listen and acknowledge the wisdom from within that is showing up and guiding you in your outside world.
Take care and be well.

It is impossible to be present if you’re trapped in personal history. And what, after all, is the difference between the past and a dream?
— Ram Dass
I have not written for a few days, mainly since last Wednesday because there was some unwanted and relatively negative news I received from work on Tuesday and also I was on leave from
Now is time to get down to business. As I near the end of my journey to give my divine soul back the power to control my current bodily life, I have started to cut ties and clean out my mental closet.
This will enable me to start soul living.
If you want to give yourself the best chance of success, you are going to have to cut some ties with the past.
This ties that have become the limiting factors that constantly hold you back. They are the ties that could be causing blockages preventing your soul from experiencing and learning.
Many of us sometimes require help to cut these ties and a lot of help is available when you really look and when you are ready.
If you really want to know where this help is available in Malaysia, send me an email and I can direct you to a few good trusting people that I am aware of.
As our soul learns from our experiences, we end up taking these lessons through our lives, but many of us are held back by the legacies of the past. When this past retains such strong hold on the present, it will often be so strong that it is enough to derail the strongest of us.
Until we make conscious decision to cut ties with whichever legacy we are dealing with, it will continue to influence our lives and control it.
Here is a Ninja meditation method that you can use to cut ties. You can also modify it to your needs.
The Ninja warriors had a meditation before they went into battle. This meditation is an adaptation of this technique that I have taken from another source:
Close your eyes, breathe into your heart, and see yourself with someone you have made a promise to in the past and who, through this gesture, you still feel attached to, even though the relationship itself has ended.
In this image, see yourself and the other person sitting together in an empty room. Within this room you (but not the other) also sit within a spiral of protective energy that separates you both.
Look at your bodies and you will see that strands of energy connect you, from your body to his or hers. Notice where these strands connect. This will show you the deeper relationship that existed between you. Is it a heart connection? Sexual? Of the mind?
Notice also if there is a discrepancy in where these strands connect (e.g., do they leave your body at the heart but connect to his at the head?). This can suggest where miscommunication is taking place in your relationships or provide insight into where and how your power is taken by others.
If you have Reiki, you will be able to visualise this when you do Reiki and connect to the chakra rainbow colors.
When you are ready, say whatever needs to be said to the person in front of you, speaking out loud, so you can forgive or make amends, accept that person’s forgiveness, finish your business together, take back your promises, and say goodbye.
When the time is right, you will see in your hand a sword you can use to cut the ties of energy between you.
Breathe in as you do so to reclaim the power that was yours. This does not hurt the other or you; you are simply cutting through energy.
As you free them and yourself from the past, watch the other person drift away from you, becoming more distant until they fade away completely.
Gently open your eyes and say out loud “I am free” and commit to that sentiment.
Repeat this exercise for 21 days for each person you would like to cut ties with and in which you feel you gave away your power.
As for cleaning out your mental closet, either start doing some soul connection and inner martial arts meditations to connect to your life force, the soul that is you and just start to believe in yourself and start thinking positive.
Do not let the psychological cancer to spread and tell yourself you are wrong or you are stupid or dumb or a lesser person. Just because someone is connected to their inner selves, their guardians and may portray themselves to be a guru ... remember that the biggest guru or master you will ever have in your life is your soul, your life force, your inner self. You do not need any guru, you are the guru.
We are all more alike than most of us dare realize. You and me, we are no different. Do not feel compassion for me cause I am no lesser than you and you are no lesser than me. Once we are one, we are connected and we will always be equals.
Take care and be well.

I have talked about cutting ethereal ties or cords and how I have cut my cords with some people and also the importance of cleaning out the mental closet in the past.
Well, recently, I started going for this Internal Martial Arts Meditation class. And the teacher said the following in a jist.
The world that we are living in is still finding harmony. And sometime in the near future, justice will be established.
But with the coming of justice, there will be no more compassion and no more friendships.
That may sound really weird and rude and utterly nonsense until it is explained.
When there is justice, everyone is basically equal and everyone respects each other.
According to wikipedia, Compassion is a virtue —one in which the emotional capacities of empathy and sympathy for the suffering of others are regarded as a part of love itself, and a cornerstone of greater social interconnectedness and humanism —foundational to the highest principles in philosophy, society, and personhood.
But what if nobody is suffering. What if everyone is doing well. What if everyone has respect for each other. What if everyone has everything they need.
Then there is no need for compassion. Compassion is somewhat an ego trip to help someone in need, whether out of love or out of pity.
We can still have love. But compassion will go out the door as everyone is the same and I do not need the compassion of others nor will anyone need my compassion.
Next is friendship. There will no longer be friendship when justice comes in. This does not mean we will all be enemies.
Once everyone is equal and there is no other needs, we will have respect for one another. When we have respect for every being, there will not be a need for friendship as it is defined now. We will all technically be equal and we will all have mutual respect.
No more childhood "I do not want to friend you" nonsense.
Again according the the mighty Wikipedia,
Value that is found in friendships is often the result of a friend demonstrating the following on a consistent basis:
- The tendency to desire what is best for the other
- Sympathy and empathy
- Honesty, perhaps in situations where it may be difficult for others to speak the truth, especially in terms of pointing out the perceived faults of one's counterpart
- Mutual understanding and compassion
- Trust in one another (able to express feelings - including in relation to the other's actions - without the fear of being judged); able to go to each other for emotional support
- Positive reciprocity - a relationship is based on equal give and take between the two parties.
Evryone in the world is your brother or your sister. Father is God, and Mother is Earth.
Father Sky, Mother Earth.
No other ties need to exist. Justice is blind, everyone is the same, everyone is equal, and everyone has mutual respect for one another.
Thank you and I love you.
Take care and be well.

Today I will be continuing to write about breaking free and specific steps to take to break free of worries. First, let us start with rearranging our mental landscape.
First, make a list of what you dwell on the most. Identify what you think about when you worry. Listen to your internal self. Take note of your thoughts. Allow yourself only a specific and limited time to worry and then move on.
Once you are in routine of this, spend some time to analyse each thought. Why do you feel this thought, what is the evidence for it, is it likely to happen, has it happened before and do you really believe it will ever happen? If the answer is mostly no, cross this off the list with a big red marker pen.
The third thing you do is ask what is the worst thing that could occur? Once you have this, plan out how to mitigate this and handle this. What actions to take to minimise the effect and write it down what needs to be done.
When you write your worries and the possible actions you may take, try to write them in two columns so that the new thoughts form a positive outcome.
After this, stop thinking too much about the worst thing that could happen and start to imagine the best thing that could happen.
Finally, meditate, relax the body, mind and soul and talk to your soul and your guardians to seek help and ask if there was another way to let go of a particular worry or concern and be open and ask if there is some other advice that you need to hear.
Believe you can change.
When mental programming becomes negative, you have a tendency to exist on a fear-based world which in turn will create fear based thoughts such as "What do other people think of me?; "I am going to fail"; "It is too late for me." and "I will make the same mistake again."
Each one of these syndromes can become a major limiting factor in your daily life especially f you choose to let it.
The steps to break free of "What others think of me" syndrome are as follows:
- Have trust and faith in your own self - body, mind and soul and it is only your opinion that matters.
- Meditate and visualise a a healthy image of you.
- Work on confidence and your self esteem. The more self esteem and confidence you have, the more powerful you ill become.
- Surround yourself with friends who are not always talking bad about someone else. Remember, people who talk bad about others behind their backs may be talking bad about you as well behind your back.
- It is your life, you set the pace and live your life and let others live theirs. Do not let others set the pace.
- When meeting new people or attending a function, say a good positive affirmation. You can say something like, "Wherever I go, there are friends there." There are always plenty of people who will accept you as you are.
- Pay somebody a compliment and make someone feel good. Maybe the individual will turn around and do the same.
And steps to break free from "I am going to fail" syndrome:
- Work on letting go of past beliefs, fears, hang-ups. Start having positive conversations with yourself, the divine soul within yourself.
- Believe that you can rather than you can't.
- Stay focused on your goals and aspirations. Your dreams and your wishes.
- Write your experiences in your journal and get them out of your head.
- You are a winner. Think of yourself as one and not as a loser. Believe in yourself and once your start to do this, you will be surprised how much others will start believing in you.
- Believe in success. Think about things you can succeed in and your mind will start to figure out solutions to ensure you succeed.
- Visualise and feel yourself achieving positive outcome and living a life that you will love.
- Give every opportunity your best shot, your best effort and do it for the highest good.
Some people, including myself sometimes feel it is too late for me to achieve certain things, especially in my career as I am now above forty and I have definitely started to adopt the following steps for me to break free of "It is too late for me" syndrome.
- Adopt an attitude that it is never too late. Nothing is ever too late. After all, the founder of KFC only founded the fast food fried chicken outlet at a very late age under interesting circumstance.
- Try something new every day. You are never to old to try something new, be it a new road or some new drink or food.
- Believe in yourself.
- Don't listen listen to others if they say you are too old. If you are passionate, irrespective of your age, you can achieve your goals.
- Associate with doers rather than talkers.
- Enroll in some class or learn something that you have always wanted to join. In the past couple of years, I have learned ballroom dancing, I have learned Pilates, I have become a Reiki master, I am an animal communicator, I am now learning Internal Martial Arts Meditation and I plan to start Spanish classes with wifey soon.
- Refuse to let your excuses hinder your potential experiences.
- Do not live a life of regrets. Too many of us have way too many regrets. Let go of your past regrets and start living the life you want, a life without regrets.
Sometimes we do not do a certain thing fearing that we will continue to make the same mistake again. So, it is also important for us to break free of the "I will make the same mistake again" syndrome by doing the following:
- You are human in this life, and while your soul is eternal, your human self will sometimes make mistakes. Give yourself permission to err from time to time.
- Learn from the mistake and try not to repeat the mistakes. Turn down the volume of the super-ego monkey chatters. Learn to accept being wrong without beating yourself up.
- Take any feedback positively, learn from it rather than getting angry, agitated or upset with feedback.
- Listen to your intuition, listen to you inner self, your divine soul cause the soul will always guide you into the right way, so have faith and trust yourself.
- Learn from other peoples mistakes and incorporate them to avoid similar mistakes.
- Laugh at some of your mistakes, rather than beating yourself up.
- Journal your error, what have you learned from them and what steps have you taken.
Be positive and believe you can change. Take the steps above and start your journey of breaking free.
Thank you and I love you.
Take care and be well.

These chains and cords that have been holding us down and holding us back within this falsified livelihood of compliance and controls and myths and beliefs.
Breaking free of worry. All types of unnecessary worries that we tie down our lives with.
Breaking free of what others think of us.
Breaking free of fear of failure and "I'm going to fail" syndrome.
Breaking free of making the same mistake syndrome.
Breaking free by cutting ties with the past.
And clean out our mental closets so that we are free.
After breaking free and doing some spring cleaning, I will write a few blogs on the journey of our divine soul - about re-birth, soul wounds and about wake up calls like I have had. About how we prepare our bodies to be temple of the soul and how we should always respect other's beliefs and not belittle their beliefs even if they were to belittle yours.
Then, to end this theme that was started in April, I will write about Soul Living, getting out of body living and living divine soul within. About choices you will make, about stepping into your soul power, also how you can tune up and finally how and what do you plan to do with it. Will you be touching lives.
These is going to take a few more blogs, maybe 9 maybe 12, I do not know and as I write I will know. It may take the rest of May or it may not.
But let us begin with breaking free.
I have had many talents and dreams that have been shattered in the past that I began to doubt my own strengths and abilities. These stemmed from how I was brought up. I hardly ever received praise for anything I did well nor encouragement to be what I have become. My father has never once said that he was proud of me and my mother came from a different generation and died to young to even have said so.
I never did well in school and my sights were set so low that I constantly worried if I would be able to work well and whether I could handle responsibility.
Life is sometimes like a merry go round, sometimes it is safer to stay on then to jump off because you fear the unknown and you fear that you may not be able to get back on.
Worry is an extension of fear and it can be a blow to your development. So, it is time to cast aside those limitations that has held you back and I encourage you to start breaking from the past habits.
My life changed when I started breaking away from the past habits and when I removed myself from all these limitations that were set in my upbringing.
I still know people around me that are worry factories, they manufacture worries for free and on a 24x7 basis. They agonize over each and every thing and my mother in law is amongst these worry factories.
I have a deep empathy for people like her as I know how it is like. Are you like that? I have broken free, time for you to break free as well. Of course I still have some worries but I do not let them tie me down and I do not let them form my character.
Many of you may not be even aware that you are worrying because it has become so common that it has become a habit-forming characteristic. Becoming aware is an important part of anxiety reduction.
When you become more aware, it will become possible to switch it off before it takes on a character of its own. Remember, you can't change the world and you can't change your wife, husband, father, mother, brother, sister ..... but you can change yourself.
By working on ourselves, we nourish the overall positive consciousness of the world we live in and are connected to.
Remember, that being perfect is not necessary and sometimes trying to be a perfectionist is what increases the worries in our lives.
You do not have to be a masterpiece of perfection, you just need to have permission to be human. Just draw on the best of your abilities and to do things for the highest good and simply being happy in the now.
When you adopt this attitude, you will worry less and therefore be happier just following this process.
Today or this weekend, all I want you to do is identify what is worrying you. Is it family, finances, career, what other people think of you, weight, visiting a doctor, rising fuel costs and therefore rising food costs, exams, other people's problems? These are but a few examples. Make a list of your worries. Think about it, bring it to your consciousness.
Writing it down is a step towards breaking free. Be aware of it.
Thank you and I love you.
Take care and be well.

The act of forgiveness is incredibly powerful in its own right - it has the capacity to heal and transform.
If you have been hurt in the past and are hanging on to negative feelings, they can take their toll on your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
Psychological effects include depression, tension, anxiety and stress. And even your cardiovascular, digestive, muscular and nervous systems can all be altered.
Many people hold on to feelings of anger or resentment towards others for weeks, months, years and some even the rest of their life. People usually blame someone else and fill themselves with rage, hurt, anger and bitterness. And this energy fills them, up and they assume the energy and the negative emotions become whom they are.
This becomes and good energy drain and which many term as soul leakage as you become less connected to your divine soul.
Once these emotions go away, they sometimes have suddenly nothing to hold on too because for a long time, all they have had is anger and resentment that they do not know how to love any more.
Forgiveness is about choice. It does not mean releasing people from the responsibility for their actions but a matter of releasing the anguish that your soul is carrying around.
Whether or not the person deserves to be forgiven, it does not matter. Just remember that without forgiving, what you are doing to your own divine self and soul.
By forgiving, you will be able to use your energy better in a healthier and productive way.
When you express forgiveness truly, you empower yourself to stop being the victim and you will begin to let go of any feelings that you were treated wrongly. And your ability to love and trust is enriched further as the emotions of hurt, bitterness and anger just dissolve.
Lewis B Smedes said, "To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you all along." (Lewis Benedictus Smedes was a renowned Christian author, ethicist, and theologian in the Reformed tradition. He was a professor of theology and ethics for twenty-five years at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. His 15 books, including the popular Forgive and Forget, covered some important issues including sexuality and forgiveness.)
To cut some etherical cords of attachment, bitterness, anger; you will first need to forgive and sometimes, it is easier said then done.
So, sometimes, you just need some words that make it easier and keep saying it over and over for days on end until you finally believe in it and you then move on. It is done.
Something that has been used previously by others include:
I now bring in the healing power of forgiveness.
I now forgive you and release you.
I release myself from emeotions of the past.
I forgive myself for accepting the belief pattern of pain and suffering.
My heart is now open to receive love in my life.
Of course my favorite that I use everyday to seek forgiveness and well to forgive is Ho'oponopono and Mornah Simeone's
Divine Creator, Father, Mother, Son as One,
If I, my family, relative and ancestors have offended
you, your family, relatives and ancestors in
thoughts, words, deeds and actions
from the beginning of out creation to the present
we ask for your forgiveness.
Let this cleanse, purify, release, cut all the negative
memories, blocks, energies and vibrations and
transmute these unwanted energies into pure light.
And it is done.
Some people do not have a problem forgiving others at all, but they have a problem forgiving themselves.
But when you feel guilty, you are also attracting punishment to your life and when the guilty feeling becomes stronger, you will even manifest these punishments and it will become true. So stop feeling guilty and beating yourself up over something you may have done wrong, forgive yourself.
Say the serenity prayer, seek to forgive yourself. Every time you make amends for the wrongs you have done, you begin a journey of healing yourself, your inner soul. The healing is not just for yourself but also for those you have done wrong.
Remember, we are all spiritual beings with an eternal soul but in our humanly bodies, we all make mistakes mainly because misguidance from our ego and it is only natural that sometimes you will make mistakes. But as long as you learn from your past mistakes and moving in a positive direction, you will be living and loving from your heart and soul.
Start this journey of forgiveness, of love, of gratitude.
I love you. Thank you. I am sorry. Please forgive me.
Take care and be well.

Energy exist in our body and our souls. Our body like a machine has a motor which is the heart that keeps the fuel which is blood and oxygen moving throughout to regenerate cells and we have the brain that directs the body. Our souls batteries which I have previously mentioned as our chakras keep out soul rejuvenated.
Prayer is also healing. God grants us what we need and we get energy from God as He and our divine souls are connected.
There is this story about a man who had faith in God. He heard there was a storm coming to his direction to his village and it would rain for days. However, he said to himself, "Have no worry, God will provide."
The storm and rain came and soon enough, the village started to flood and water was at his window level and he said to himself, "Don't worry; God will provide."
Some people came by to help those in need of assistance and offered to move the man and carry some of his belongings to safer ground, but the man said to them, "No thank you. God will provide."
The rain continued and the next day some men came in a small boat to offer help and told the man the village was being evacuated cause the rain was not stopping and the water was rising. The man said to them, "No thank you. God will provide."
After several days, the water had submerged the house and only the roof was above the water and the man had climbed to the roof. A helicopter cam by and through the loudspeaker told the man that they will sent down a lift and take him to safety. Again the man yelled back at them, "No thank you. God will provide."
The water began creeping up towards the roof and he was left sitting on his chimney. He held his head high and looked up and screamed to God, "I've prayed and prayed to You and I trusted You to provide. But why at this time of desperate need, You have forsaken me."
And the booming voice of God answered, "Forsaken you? Who do you think sent the townspeople to help on the first day, and the boat the next day and the helicopter a few days later?"
Sometimes, God has already provided but we are so blinded to see what is right in front of our own eyes.
I have always liked the serenity prayer, "God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change thing I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference."
All Serenity, Courage and Wisdom are very important in us making good decisions and not be like the man in the story above.
Having one alone is not enough. We need to accept what is beyond our ability. We need to have bravado to change things, if not, things will be stagnant and there will be absolutely no changes. And we always need to have wisdom, for without wisdom, we will just drown when the floods come and not even know when God has sent us saviours.
Everything we do has energy and can heal. Prayer. Reiki. Ho'oponopono. Love. Forgiveness. Gratitude. Even breathing. Over the month of April and in the past, I have written about many of these topics. HOw many of these do you practice?
It is never too late to start and there is no end once you have started.
I love you and I thank you.
Take care and be well.
