Divine World Awakens…

December 29, 2008

Awakening To the divine is a phenomenon that is sweeping across the globe awakening everyone one in it’s path. The presence of this wonderful energy is not for just a chosen few. Divine energy is for everyone on this earth. Divine energy has no preconception of race, creed or color. The divine energy is hear to flow through everyone all the same.

Divine energy has the power to awaken the believer and the skeptic as well. Once the divine awakening process starts you make a strong turn towards the light. Your life takes on a whole new meaning. That eventually turns into the prelude of the realization of who you truly are. You will be living in a higher vibration where joy, happiness and bliss are living. Your fears and worries will fade into the distance until eventually they will be gone. You will be living in the element of the divine.

The world is going through many changes preparing to except these higher vibrations, just as we are. People all over the world are awakening to the divine grace of oneness. People are beginning to feel and let go and allow the divine energy to flow with amazing changes taking place in there lives.

How will your life change when you begin to allow the divine energy to flow and you discover the true nature of this beautiful universe? How are you going to feel when the divine responds to all of your hearts desires?

Deeksha or divine energy is not a religion or some fad that will disappear, this energy is here to stay. The divine is here to help humanity go through this next evolution of human existence. We are living in a time that is going to be pure ecstasy. Despite all of the mayhem, environmental destruction, religious narrow-mindedness and political greed that has been plaguing this magnificent world for much of human history. The human race is preparing for the biggest evolutionary jump of all time. We have been getting clues from mystics and scientists for many years now.

Receiving and letting go of our restrictions to allow divine energy to flow is for us to prepare for this evolution that is upon us. We have been trying to tear down the wall of the mind that separates us from the divine since Eve ate the forbidden fruit. It is God or the divine, beginning to lift the veil for us to go through this evolutionary time to a higher consciousness. Divine energy is not only changing the world, it is changing lives.

For most people, success means possession of wealth, prestige or status. By these criteria alone, the majority of us would not qualify. Yet the truth is that success is really a subjective perception. In other words, it is all in the mind. If one thinks one is successful, that perception is valid by one’s own reckoning.

The fact is that no-one is perfect and no-one can do everything well. It is sufficient that each one of us does our best. Within the individual limitations or constraints that each one of us finds ourselves; and to the extent of our knowledge, capabilities and skills; when we do our best, we have indeed achieved success.

This approach is what I like to call success thinking supported by appropriate actions. It combines positive thinking with reality, and espouses practical methods of achieving success in a progressive, comfortable way. So there is no hype, no magic formula, and no instant solutions.

There is real work involved to achieve individual success targets whether these be lofty ambitions or something as simple as cooking a good meal. No matter what the goal, everything has to begin with the right thinking because this is a prerequisite to the right behaviors and actions to actually bring about the right outcomes.

The exciting thing about the human potential is that we can all continue to learn to be better in our chosen activities. This allows us all to achieve increasing levels of success as our thinking improves and our actions help us go beyond original targets and set higher ones.

I hope these reflections can encourage those who may be struggling in their lives to believe that solutions exist for all problems and that these can be discovered with the right thinking and mindset. The solutions then point to actions that must be taken. If we follow this path with our best efforts, we can be sure that we can achieve the success we have defined for ourselves.

Mission Statement

December 28, 2008

Post ChristmasHope you have a great Christmas!

Today I have written my “mission statement”, or life purpose, which whatever you may want to call it. Yes, this is a bold stance on my part because I have never wanted to commit anything, so I was like awed and wow of myself.

Still I got some limiting beliefs about it, so does that mean it really isn’t something I want to have in life? Am I being too committed?

A niggling thought: how will I live it now? What changes do I have to make in life? Do I have to be holy?

On the other hand, I feel peace and it truly feels like a Divine Inspiration flowing THROUGH me.

It is just not at all what I expected. It isn’t where I thought I wanted to go, yet it makes perfect sense. But, I still have those doubts… mainly “Why me?” Like it is much too grand and I was just looking for some small role.

A great poem about this topic:

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate,
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people
Won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone,
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously
Give other people permission to do the same.

-Marianne Williamson

The real psychic

December 16, 2008

Are Psychics real?People with power to predict the future always make laymen wonder are what they predicted real? Or are they real? People always ask about this question when they heard a psychic prophecy. The answer is often not a straightforward one as people always turn to psychics or clairvoyants when life is cornered.

Parapsychology is a form of science that studies these psychic phenomena and in this modern times, advanced electronic equipment is often used to test for psychic phenomena. Equipment like EMF detectors, temperature sensors, static electricity detectors, ionization detectors, motion detectors, EVP recording devices, RF detectors, and radiation monitors are often used to study paranormal activities.

No matter how, I believe strongly in the existence of spiritual plane and so do many people as many things can’t be explained from the scientific point of view. After learning so much about psychic, spirituality and self-improvement from Maria Duval, I think it is best that we keep an open mind because not everything around can be scientifically measured or explained.

So, my own answer to the question “are psychics real?” is “Yes, I believe they are”.

Psychic Readings

December 16, 2008

Psychic ReadingIt is not a strange thing to consult a psychic for advices about our different facets of live. Some people may not believe however more people are turning to occult for personal inspirations or directions.

Maria Duval says that our mindset is mainly based on value systems instilled into us since very young ages and this literally form the foundation of what we believe to be true, right, and real. In essence, that become our reality.

So many people from different cultures have consulted astrologers, fortune tellers, psychics and clairvoyants. This is because no matter how skeptical, people seem drawn to the possibility of supernatural answers no matter what’s the background.

In the human mind questions need to be answered and decisions need to be made regarding those answers. So, it stands to reason that people seek to relieve anxiety by delegating the answering of anxiety filled questions to mystics and fortune tellers.

So, whether you believe in psychics, clairvoyants or paranormals, I assure you talking with a psychic can be an highly effective tool for dealing with stress and anxiety. It may also extend your mind to brand new dimensions you may never have thought of and allow you to break out of the stoic mold that you may be living in.

Christmas is one of the most celebrated festivals in the world and its influence has spread far and wide to every corner of the world and to different cultures. Christmas is also the most favorite of winter celebrations, a time for traditions such as parties, baking cookies, trimming the tree, decorating the house and family get-together. Personally I enjoy the festive spirits of Christmas too!

Enjoyed by both children and adults, it is probably the most popular holiday in the world. Let this interesting article tell you more about how Christmas is celebrated in some parts of the world.

The modern Christmas is a product of hundreds of years of both secular and religious traditions from around the globe. It is interesting to see how different countries celebrate the same festival in different ways. Here are some of the examples:

Christmas in the USA
In 1863, Santa Claus was given the name and bore the red suit, pipe, and his reindeer and sleigh. Early European settlers brought many traditions to the US. Now Christmas celebrations vary greatly between regions of the US, because of the variety of nationalities that have settled there.

In Hawaii, Christmas starts with the coming of the Christmas Tree Ship. Santa Claus also arrives by boat and Christmas dinner is eaten outdoors. In Alaska, boys and girls with lanterns on poles carry a large figure of a star from door to door. They sing carols and are invited in for supper. In Washington D.C., a huge, spectacular tree is lit ceremoniously when the President presses a button and turns on the tree’s lights. In New Orleans, a huge ox is paraded around the streets decorated with holly and ribbons tied to its horns.

The majority of Americans celebrate Christmas with the exchange of gifts and greetings and with family visits. For many, the day begins on Christmas Eve with the Midnight Mass. American homes are decorated with holly, mistletoe and branches of trees. Most have a Christmas tree hung with radiant decorative items.

Christmas in England
The English enjoy beautiful Christmas music. They love to decorate Christmas Trees and hang up evergreen branches. The English gift giver is called Father Christmas. He wears a long red or green robe, and leaves presents in stockings on Christmas Eve. The traditional Christmas dinner is roast turkey with vegetables and sauces.

One English custom is mumuring. In the Middle Ages, people called mummers put on masks and acted out Christmas plays. These plays are still performed in towns and villages.

In England the day after Christmas is called Boxing Day because boys used to go round collecting money in clay boxes. When the boxes were full, they broke them open.

Christmas in Spain
Christmas is a deeply religious holiday in Spain. The Christmas season officially begins on December 8, the feast of the Immaculate Conception. Christmas Eve is known as “the Good Night.” It is a time for family members to gather together to rejoice and feast around the Nativity scenes that are present in nearly every home.

December 28 is the feast of the Holy Innocents. Young boys of a town or village light bonfires and one of them acts as the mayor who orders townspeople to perform civic chores such as sweeping the streets. Refusal to comply results in fines which are used to pay for the celebration.

On Christmas Eve, as the stars come out, tiny oil lamps are lit in every house, and after Midnight Mass and Christmas Dinner, streets fill with dancers and onlookers.

Christmas in Italy
The Christmas season in Italy continues for three weeks, starting eight days before Christmas known as the Novena. During this period, children go from house to house reciting Christmas poems and singing.

A strict fast is observed for 24 hours before Christmas Eve and is followed by a celebration meal. Presents and empty boxes are drawn from the Urn of Fate — lucky dip, which always contains one gift per person. By twilight, candles are lighted around the family crib known as the Presepio, prayers are said and children recite poems.

In Italy the children wait until Epiphany, January 6, for their presents. According to tradition, the presents are delivered by a kind, ugly witch called Befana on a broomstick. It was said that she was told by the three kings that the baby Jesus was born; she was busy and delayed visiting the baby. She missed the Star, lost her way and has been flying around ever since, leaving presents at every house with children in case he is there.

Christmas in Africa
Preparation for Christmas in the Congo begins when some group is designated to prepare the annual Christmas pageant. Christmas day begins with groups of carollers walking to and fro through the village, along the roadway, by the houses of the missionaries, singing the lovely carols known the world around.

The most important part of their Christmas worship service is the love offering, this is the gift in honor of Jesus. Everyone who attends the service goes forward to lay down their gift upon the raised platform near the Communion table. Now people have Christmas dinners after the service, preparing tables out in front of their home and inviting many of their intimate friends to share.

Christmas in China
The Chinese Christmas trees are called “Trees of Light.” Santa Claus is called Dun Che Lao Ren which means “Christmas Old Man.”.

The Christian children of China decorate trees with colourful ornaments. These ornaments are made from paper in the shapes of flowers, chains and lanterns. They also hang muslin stockings hoping that Christmas Old Man will fill them with gifts and treats.

The non-Christian Chinese call this season the Spring Festival and celebrate with many festivities that include delicious meals and pay respects to their ancestors. The children are the main focus of these celebrations. They receive new lothes and toys, eat delectable food and watch firecracker displays.

The Library of Thoughts

December 8, 2008

We all have thoughts so I just have a funny question. Where do these thoughts come from and where do they go to?

Maria Duval says that we are all part of this vast Universe with our physical existence. Similarly it is right to say that we also stay within a vast non-physical universe of thought which can be term the “Universal Mind”, which is a “database” or “library” of all thoughts that we send out and receive.

By this analogy, it is not wrong to say then that there is big boss in charge behind of this “library”, a head “librarian”. This profound concept of a master librarian brings us to the final stretch of the equation of
“selfness”. Maria Duval describes this as our physical bodies, our spiritual minds and spirit or soul. It is this spirit or soul that links us to the beginning of all of existence, seen and unseen, tangible and intangible.

Here we are in physical realm called Earth. We call and send out information via our invisible thoughts in the non-physical universe called the Universal Mind. We connect it under the omnipresent observation of our meta-physical spiritual mind.

At these stratospheric levels of our consciousness, we are all One at the highest levels of awareness. That’s right, we are all One.
