Overcoming Negative Influences

Question: How can we stop the negative influence of people who are close to us and enable them to change their thinking pattern? Answer: This is a curious question. I don’t know if you have ever made the attempt to change anyone.  I don’t believe I have met anyone who has been successful in that effort.  In fact, it is possible to expend a great deal of time and energy in such pursuits, without getting any success. If you feel someone is having a [...]

The power of the soul

“Ninety-five percent of our time is wasted on thinking about others; we go on and on with a string of expectations, which becomes like a hammer of demand on other people’s heads. Take a combination of expectations and demand, and what does it equal? Conflict!” At this time in the world Drama, everybody has some illness of the mind or other and are abusive towards others in some way. If you stay in meditation you can help that soul by [...]

Experiencing the Power of Silence

In my free time I am practicing silence more and more. It is helping me to stay peaceful and calm my mind. As relationships, health and wealth are not a reliable source of happiness, I am finding more and more that spending time with the supreme soul the highest energy in silence is my main source of happiness. It is an excellent way to stay peaceful and conserve energy. It is also important to keep the balance between spending [...]

Creating Heaven on Earth

Yesterday I had a great time at work and managed to create a peaceful environment for others. The return of that was my colleague seeing me as a “special soul”. I work with children so it is no easy feat to create peace for others. Here are my top tips for creating heaven in your life: Keep on helping the self and others. Having a pure attitude, pure thoughts and pure actions will create good karma for you. Behave as though you [...]

10 Best Steps on Overcoming Anger

  Recognising First Signs Don’t do anything. Don’t act on the angry feeling. This is just an emotion. You can feel it without turning it into a behaviour. Response Try to step back from this feeling and label it, seeing that it is, in fact, separate from you. Notice its strength and how it pushes you into action. Accept that it’s there. There’s nothing wrong with anger, it’s only a signal that you’re in pain. It’s only a problem when you act on [...]

The Way of Effective Communication

Effective communication is probably the most important of all life skills. It helps us in every aspect of life, from our professional life, to social gatherings and everything in between. Good communication is about showing meaning in what we say and how we say it. A common cry heard in many interactions is: Say what you mean! It sounds so simple, but all too often, what we try to communicate gets lost in translation despite our best intentions. We say one [...]

Strengthening Mental Health

I woke up this morning with a promise to myself that my negative thoughts will not defeat me and I am to work on strengthening my mental mind (health). However, very quickly, I found myself tangled in my morning routine, in judging, the right and the wrong and not what was wrong about me, but what others are doing wrong and what they should be doing right and of course; my excuse is that I am helping them to [...]

An angel cares, shares and inspires

“Every two hours I will put a brake on my mind and my tongue. I step inside myself for a minute and become quiet; I stop, relax and observe. Once my understanding is clearer, I can re-enter the flow of daily activities with new-found direction. As soon as I notice myself complaining and blaming I will stop. These two habits destroy my inner strength because they show that I am still expecting solutions and changes to come from others. [...]

People dealing with Cancer

The BBC has reported that NHS patients in England should get results for cancer tests within four weeks of being referred by a GP by 2020 under new plans to improve treatment. In 2012 there were an estimated 14.1 million new cases of cancer worldwide and 8.2 million deaths worldwide (taken from Cancer Research UK). I’m very glad to hear the news about improvements in cancer care for NHS patients as my mum who was diagnosed with cancer in 2010 was [...]

International Yoga Day

Well, I didn’t see this one coming, did you? But, what a brilliant invention. The 21st June, which is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, known as the Summer Solstice, marks the transition from Uttarayan to Dakshinayana. Uttarayan, which begins on the shortest day, the Winter Solstice, marks the turning of the sun back to the north and longer days; with Dakshinayana, the longest day, marking the turning of the sun towards the south, and shorter days. [...]
