Let the energy of life work for you

There is a constant energy being transferred in the Universe. Some energy reaches the Earth in the form of Sunlight. One which is very necessary for life to exist. We humans consume light as well. That gives us energy in form of Vitamin D.

In life, there is a constant flow of energy from people in your life, the places you go to, your work place and your neighborhood. Often you meet a small cute child on your way out of your home and you smile. The innocence and cuteness of the child makes you feel a certain kind of emotion.

At the same time, while you are traveling in a bus you get squeezed in the crowd or it rains on your way to an important meeting, there is a different kind of emotion running through you. What if you have ordered a pizza on a hungry night and you get a cold pizza delivered late. You get so flabbergasted.

But when you sit in a park on a Sunday morning and look at the people going around. The chirping of the birds and the animals running around. That vibrant situation creates a sense of positive energy in you. You can feel some type of energy going through you and everything else in the world is not reaching you.

It is not everytime things are smooth. But one the simplest effort we can make in feeling the energy around us is to smile and connect with the nature. Let the momentum gain. Be one with the things and stop struggling within.

For once believe in the flow of life and continue to embrace as things happen in your life. Be like the child and be curious to know and experience life. Everyday will be exciting and new.

When you let the energy flow through you, you feel stronger than you were. There is always a guiding force working for you. You will meet new people who are there for the things you need in your life. When you seek, the things are arranged in the way it must be.

So follow your rhythm of life. Be one with self and others. Don’t struggle within. Embrace the nature and it’s signals. Smile within and out. Life will nurture you like its own child. Stay blessed.

Step by Step gain control of yourself and your life !

SELFCARE

When everything seems to be out of place, just hold on for a while and take something that is in your own control and try to make the best of it.

Start by eating well and taking care of yourself. Go for a walk or a jog or get a routine of physical exercise.

Once you start to feel better improve on your capacity. Feel the emotions flowing through you. Listen to some music and follow your rhythm.

NOURISHMENT

Then gift yourself little happiness. Get that favorite item you have been longing for. Try to eat something that makes you happy. Meet a friend who is on the same rhythm as you. Go out for a while.

SMALL THINGS

As you start you get flowing with pace and things start to getting into shape, take the bigger tasks and stuff that involves others. Things that aren’t directly in your control. Take them one by one, bit by bit. As you go on, some may happen smoothly while others may still be at the same place. Since you have changed from the last time, there may be something you can do about it.

IMPROVEMENT

Try to focus on things that are important and make a map of what you wish to do. Take a decision on stagnant things. Let go some of the old things that you have been stuck with. Find a new place. Get yourself into different position in life. May be look for a new job if it requires. Fix a broken electronic item. Get a face lift for your room. Buy something that is necessary and nourish self and surrounding.

BOOST

Then when you are on the final edge, double down on your capacity. Increase your limit of physical endurance. Take part in competitions. Plan your days ahead. Take a stride. Plan your finance. Make decisions of things that need your intervention and carry forward from there. Own your self and your life. Shred off things that are not necessary.

CHALLENGE

Gift yourself with bigger things that will help you develop further in life. Make good connections that keep you going. Stay on course. Take a vacation once in a while. Do things that you like and are good at.

TRANSFORMATION

Over the period of time, you will feel better at things you do and you will do things that make you feel better. You will find transformation at the core level and now the world will look so different from your view point.

All the best.

Look at life across time !

There are times when you may feel that you are doing well while the other times it may seem nothing is moving at all. What is that makes things seems so different during different times. We are aware that there is some progress yet within there is some kind of conflict on the expectations from self and overall result.

If you see what you have been able to do in the last month, would be miniscule. If you see what you have done in the last one year, there may be a lot of things that didn’t happen. You may travel frequently, which for the reasons of pandemic, was not possible. In the same way various aspects of life were touched in the recent past.

If we start looking at that tenure, things may seem downside and make us feel belittle. However if we see at what all has happened in the last 5 years, then we can feel happy.

You see in life, there are slow times and fast times. There are times when you are at your best and you may be able to do a lot of things during that time. So when you are on that flow, try to accomplish as much as you can.

See at life from a standpoint of occurrence over time. Over time the good times will be followed by challenging times which will be followed by the days of favorable conditions. As the saying goes, this too shall pass. Keep that in mind.

So if you feel stuck or stranded, look at what you have been able to experience, see and do in the last decade and hope for the next one in the similar light. Stay blessed.

Drumroll Please ! Let’s get started for 2021

For all the times that has been there, we were going through some tough moments. We were all locked in our homes with little to no movement to the outside world. The times have gone by and now slowly the light is emerging from behind the horizon. We can see the glimpses of new rays of hope with awareness, understanding and constant efforts from medics and researchers around the world.

With all the things behind us, 2020 has been a historic year in the recent past most likely the one after the millennium year 2000. We are now ready to step forward into 2021. So we must all revive with new energy and take ourselves into the new awaiting world. The common take is to care and share. We must rejoice and spark each other with new positivity so the days go by well.

The game is on from now and in the next few weeks, we will leave behind 2020, so I encourage you all to start feeling the vibes and go ahead with utmost care and energy. May you all have good days ahead and a wonderful times to come.

Cheers !
