Are you watching your thoughts?

A famous proverb which says you are made up of your thoughts. Thoughts become things!
Let’s see how our thoughts and affirmation rule our life.

What is an affirmation?
Affirmations are positive statements about how you want to think, feel and behave. Every thought you think every word you say is an affirmation All of our self-talk or inner dialogue is a stream of affirmations. We are continually affirming subconsciously with our words and thoughts and this flow of affirmations is creating our life experience in every moment. Our beliefs are just learned thought patterns that we have developed since childhood, many of these work well for us, but others may now be working against us.They are dysfunctional and may be sabotaging us from achieving what we believe we want.

Every affirmation we think or say is a reflection of our inner truth or beliefs.Developing a positive mindset is one of the most powerful life strategy.To do positive affirmations, you need to eliminate the negativity in your mind . Professionals and business people can use these techniques to develop personal power or gain a competitive edge. At a personal level it will transform your life, your health and renew the joy and passion for life. You must believe that you can do things. The more you believe, the stronger the affirmation.

I hope you find our positive affirmations life changing and beneficial. I have included a list of positive affirmations:

Affirmations to activate your day as soon as you wake up   
·         I am a radiant person of positive energy.
·         Every day in every way I am getting better and better.
·         I am a radiant being of light and spiritual love.
·         I prosper wherever I turn and I know that I deserve prosperity of all kinds
·         The more grateful I am, the more reasons I find to be grateful
·         I pay my bills with love as I know abundance flows freely through me.

Affirmations to remove negative thinking
·         I am a powerful person unaffected by the negative words and attitudes of others.
·         No person or event upsets my mind; it is only my inability to tolerate them which makes me annoyed. Therefore with a high state of tolerance no person or adverse situation will annoy me (you have the power to change yourself).
·         When I believe in myself, so do others
·         I express my needs and feelings
·         I am my own unique self - special, creative and wonderful

Affirmations to remain ever stress free and happy      
·         I am a spiritual sun, I radiate light and power, my stress is like a passing cloud which I have created due to my incorrect thinking.
·         I forgive those that have brought me sorrow and forget the past. I march into the future as the dawn of my own positive change envelopes my mind with unlimited rays of love and power.
·         I see others as actors in a play and the world around me as a stage.
·         Life is a joy filled with delightful surprises
·         My life is a joy filled with love, fun and friendship all I need do is stop all criticism, forgive, relax and be open.
·         I choose love, joy and freedom, open my heart and allow wonderful things to flow into my life.

Affirmations to Make Money
·         I love money. Money flows easily into my life.
·         I attract money naturally. My middle name is money.
·         I realize that money is essential for leading a good life but that I should not make it the number one priority of life.
·         The Universe is the constant supplier of money for me and I always have enough money to fulfill my needs.
·         Whatever activities I perform make money for me and I am always full of money.
·         My bank balance is increasing everyday and I always have enough money for myself.
·         Money and I are friends and our friendship will never fall apart.
·         I am a money magnet towards whom money is constantly attracted.
·         Every day I am attracting and saving more and more money.
·         Money is an integral part of my life and is never away from me.
·         I am debt free as money is constantly flowing into my life.
·         My money consciousness is always increasing and keeping me surrounded by money.

Lets have a look at what we think most of the time .

We have thoughts which have been conditions on by the belief system prevailing in society .We use sentences like …..
·         This task is difficult..
·         I am going nowhere
·         Life sucks..
·         People are taking advantage of me …
·         I behave like this because I have been taught to behave in this way
·         I cannot control my emotions
·         No  job satisfaction is there
·         I am stuck in life …
·         My health is going down …and bla bla bla …
·         Nothing is moving
·         Life is to suffer
·         Making money is hard

Most of the talks nearly 90% of our thoughts are negative; no wonder we find ourselves struggling. Each negative thought or word is a negative affirmation. It is these negative thoughts that feed and validate our negative internal beliefs. Under this kind of negative bombardment most people simply do not have the strength to break free of their negative thoughts and become hopelessly locked into their own (usually false) negative beliefs.

Affirmations are more than just repeating words. It is a whole process of becoming aware of your thoughts and words in everyday life, choosing to think and project happy positive thoughts. Continually repeating affirmations with conviction and passion will chip away at even the strongest resistance. Because affirmations actually reprogram your thought patterns, they change the way you think and feel about things, and because you have replaced dysfunctional beliefs with your own new positive beliefs, positive change comes easily and naturally.

How to use affirmations?
In order to change your beliefs and create a new reality, you have to bombard your subconscious mind with thoughts of your desire. However, these thoughts have to be worded carefully, otherwise the results may not be as expected.

1. Write your affirmation
A great way of keeping your affirmation at the forefront of your mind is to write them down, leave notes or cards around so that you notice them throughout the day. Another idea is to write your affirmation down many times (10-20), this helps imprint it on your mind.

2. Use the present tense:
Do not use the future tense. If you say, "I will be rich", your being rich will forever be in the future!

3. Say Affirmations with feeling
Say your affirmations with passion, the higher your emotional state as you say them, the more effective they are.

4. Mirror Technique:
Stand in front of a mirror, look into your eyes and repeat the affirmations with gusto. Put energy into them. Looking into your own eyes deeply helps connect with your subconscious mind. However, you have to do this on a very regular basis.

When we can be the master of our own mind and control the thoughts in our mind we can create our own reality based on the continuous positive thoughts flowing within our mind. With this awareness other peoples thoughts will not affect us adversely, instead our thoughts will become a positive inspiration for those around us.

You have unlimited positive potential which I would like to assist you to activate.
I hope you enjoy the contents of positive affirmations and find it beneficial to your well being.

Have a  Beautiful Day ..

Christmas Joy -Joy is found in sharing.

Christmas Joy -Joy is found in sharing.

Christmas joy, for me, is a Season, a happening. An experience. It’s like a long story, a big book or a really good movie..It starts when December draws closer. The music comes, the decorations appear. It’s getting darker — and colder. Inside it’s warmer and cozier.

Several of our favorite carols mention it: “Joy to the world, the Lord is come,” “O come all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant,” “Shepherds, why this jubilee, why your joyous strains prolong?” “Good Christian men, rejoice, with heart and soul and voice,” “Joyful all ye nations rise, join the triumph of the skies, with th’ angelic host proclaim, ‘Christ is born in Bethlehem.’”

It’s here, inside, the Christmas joy experience takes place, mostly.
All the Christmas movies we watch, every evening another. With popcorn and diet cola because we save calories for later. Every week we take out another one of our Christmas boxes and put up some decorations; this way decorating for Christmas is relaxed and fun instead of stressful work.
What thrills me is that we’re all in this together. And that isn’t about family or friends; it’s us as a country all together into Christmas. 

Commercials, stores, store windows, music on the radio, people doing Christmas shopping, Christmas decorations appearing everywhere, everything Christmas themed. On TV popular series have the time in their make believe world synced to ours and we see them having Christmas. The Christmas classics appear.
For a couple of weeks we’re all one, sharing the same experience, living the same life. It’s not that I’m a dreamer but that experience, that us approaching Christmas thing … that’s what I point to .
That Jesus is the reason for the season, for example. Or that real Christmas joy comes from giving, not from getting. when you ask me "what is Christmas - joy?"

Ideas on Christmas gifts                              
The Christmas season has come and gone, and in most cases a card will suffice to show appreciation, but in certain instances something extra is needed.
Christmas is the time of festivities and for exchanging gifts with your loved ones. Christmas Gift Hampers, Christmas Decor, Santa Claus / Soft Toys and Christmas Flowers are some of the many amazing gift ideas for this special occasion.

Have a merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year 2012

SelfConfidence matters ....

If you look at most successful people, you'll see that they all have one thing in common - self-confidence. Yes, some people are born with it but for most other people, it's a learned skill.

Here are my top suggestions to increase your confidence:

1. Work on your body language.
We've all been at places where someone quite ordinary strides into a room, makes eye contact and starts impressing the socks off everybody. Or where you think somebody's at least 6 feet tall because of their bearing and the way they carry themselves and then later you realize they're quite average.
Like it or not - first impressions do count. So stand tall and practise good posture. Imagine that you're being pulled by a string going all the way from your toes to the top of your head. And whenever you enter a room, don't walk in almost apologetically. Stride in, make eye contact and be the first to introduce yourself.

2. Get involved in a physical activity - walking, swimming, etc.
Any physical exercise like walking, running, dancing, etc. will make you feel better about yourself. Firstly, exercising releases all those good hormones and then your body image will improve the fitter you get.

3. Wear clothes that fit you correctly.
Feel good factor comes from wearing clean and fitting clothes  The truth is that wearing ill-fitting clothes only serves to accentuate the very areas you're trying to cover up. Those big, baggy T-shirts don't do any favours for most women. In fact, they make you look even bigger.
Sometimes we squeeze ourselves into a pair of jeans (in the correct size) but they look terrible because of the cut. It is much better to buy a larger size and be comfortable. It's the fit not the size that matters.

4. Be kind to yourself.
Think about the things you tell yourself when you make a mistake. Would you say those same things to your friends? Probably not. When we make mistakes, we are often very hard on ourselves. Yet we treat other people much, much better. Next time this happens, stop and start talking to yourself as you would talk to a friend.

5. Remind yourself often of your good qualities.
Do you know what your best qualities are? Are you kind and compassionate? Do you treat people fairly? Are you a friendly person? Do you like to help people?
Make a list of at least five good qualities and remind yourself of them daily, but especially when you're having a bad day.
6. Don't dwell on your past mistakes.
Recognise that the mistake does not define who you are. You can fail an exam without being a failure. Your relationship might have gone off in the ditch but that does not mean you are a failure.
Keep things in perspective. It just means that you failed the exam or that the relationship failed.

7. Surround yourself with supportive people.
The last thing you need when you feel down or less-than-fabulous is to be surrounded by naysayers and negative people telling you that "all men suck" or "it's impossible to get that job you're after".
Choose carefully who you share your heart with and surround yourself with people who will encourage and motivate people. If you don't have many of those in your life, then contact me and I will be your cheerleader!

8. Keep learning new skills
Aside from keeping your mind sharp (and preventing Alzheimer's), be a life-long learner. I'm not necessarily talking about formal education.
What's stopping you from learning a new language, taking a dance class, learning some new computer skills, taking up blogging, etc. Learning will improve your confidence by leaps and bounds.

9. Take the time to reach out to other people through community programmes etc.
If ever you feel down, there's no better upper than helping other people. Volunteer your services at a children's orphanage or an old aged home.
My challenge to you is this - next time you eat out at a restaurant, instead of sending half your meal back to the kitchen, get a doggie bag and give it to the beggar on the nearest corner. His appreciation will melt the hardest of hearts.

10. Learn to stand up for yourself
Your soul dies a tiny little bit every time you keep quiet when you should speak up for yourself. Being a doormat is not attractive and will get you nowhere in the long run.
If haven't had much practice before, start with small things. Insist on low-fat milk in your coffee. Return the milk that went sour before the due date. Write a letter of complain if you get bad customer service. And only when you're feeling more confident, then tackle bigger issues like speaking to your boss about overloading you with work or your friends about relationship issues.
Learn to say no. It's not a swear word - I promise.

Pranayama -Yogic Exercise

Pranayama is an aspect of Yoga that deals with breathing. Pranayama is a method of controlling prana or life force through the regulation of breathing. It is the breathing process or the control of the motion of inhalation, exhalation and the retention of vital energy.


Pranayama or control of Prana, is the means to an end. It helps purification of the nerves and causes Nadi Suddhi. It awakens the mystic, serpent power, Kundalini Sakti. Puraka is inhalation of breath. Kumbhaka is retention. Rechaka is exhalation of breath. The practice of Pranayama should be systematic and well-regulated. The ratio between Puraka, Kumbhaka and Rechaka is 1:4:2. If you inhale for a period of 12 Matras, you will have to do Kumbhaka for a period of 48 Matras, then the Rechaka period is 24 Matras. You must do Rechaka very, very slowly. This is important. This is a sine qua non of the practice.

Easy Comfortable Pranayama

(Sukha Purvaka)

Sit on Padma or Siddha Asana with an empty stomach in your meditation room before the picture of your Ishta Devata. Close your eyes. Close the right nostril with the right thumb. Draw the air in slowly through the left nostril. Then close the left nostril with the right ring and little fingers and retain the air as long as you can comfortably do. Then remove the right thumb and exhale through the right nostril very, very slowly. Now half the process is over. Similarly, draw the air in through the right nostril; retain the breath and exhale through the left nostril. This is one round of Pranayama. Do 20 or 30 Pranayamas in the morning and evening to start with and slowly increase the number to 80 for each sitting. First have two sittings only, in the morning and evening. After due practice you can have four sittings. Have a Bhava that all the Divine qualities such as mercy, love, forgiveness, Santi, joy, enter into your system along with the inspired air and that all Asura Sampat, devilish qualities such as lust, anger, greed, are thrown out along with the expired air. Repeat OM, or Gayatri mentally during Puraka, Kumbhaka and Rechaka.

Pranayama removes all diseases, purifies the Nadis, steadies the mind in concentration, improves digestion, hardens Brahmacharya and awakens the Kundalini. Hardworking Sadhakas can do 320 Pranayamas daily in four sittings at the rate of 80 each sitting. Purification of the Nadis will set in rapidly. Many Siddhis are obtained by Pranayama practice.

Bhastrika Pranayama

This is one of the eight kinds of Pranayama of Yogi Swatmaram. As the bellows of the blacksmith constantly dilate and contract, similarly, slowly draw in air by both nostrils and expand the stomach; then let out air quickly making the sound like bellows. Inhale and exhale quickly ten to twenty times. Then perform Kumbhaka after a deep inhalation. Then expel it slowly. Do this three times. This is a very powerful Pranayama.

Serving the humanity

What does it mean to “become a human? “ Are  we really Human in nature though we call ourselves Human Beings ?
Thinking ….
So let’s have some fun with ourselves.Don't be afraid as this is no hypnotizing As I am always with you ..

Close your eyes .Take 6 long deep breaths very slowly and gradually. Think on incidences where you have been showing a deed of kindness love, compassion to others .  
How many instances are there where you have been involved in deeper way to other fellow being since your birth?

A) Hard to remember
B) Easy to remember
C) None

We are vibrational being not the fleshy or bony structure . We are living ultimate manifestation who can bring ultimate peace and happiness in society.
It means to be oneself, to be in harmony with the deepest inner being. The deepest inner being of a human is to rest in happiness (in Sat-Chid-Ananda).
To be a human means to have feelings, to be able to empathize with other beings and to live in all-encompassing love. Or it means to dissolves the ego, and sees him or her through all fellow beings.

 To be kind to everyone, and show forth affection to every living soul or being at a deeper level with all other beings feels their joy and their worries and so on
SO what is it that keeps us connected to our own self i.e. inner child..Humbleness…And all godly characteristics you can say.

Serving the humanity
As well said “Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth”.
~Mohammed Ali
·         If you render service in order to oblige a person and if you feel proud of doing it, you are not only doing spiritual harm to the recipient of your service but also to yourself.
·         The consciousness that 'I am obliging someone' is the first to occur during the process of serving; but it can be annulled by the contrary thought, 'I am obliged by being given this opportunity of serving’. This latter thought facilitates the attitude of detachment and secures freedom from the bondage of good actions.

·         When rendering service, one should make efforts to imbibe divine qualities generally in the initial stages, one should render service which is feasible and can be done properly. Then one derives the satisfaction that one has rendered service well and gets the inspiration to do service of the next stage.

·         Often one is unaware of one’s latent potential. Hence, one should render service a little beyond one’s capacity. Only then does one experience the energy that The Lord endows to render that service to perfection.

·         Service rendered unto the Absolute Truth should be devoid of expectations.

Little ways to do service:

Through your Family:

Start with serving in our families. Daily we work, clean, love, support, listen to, teach, and endlessly give of ourselves to the members of our family. We may often feel overwhelmed with all that we must do, but "The key... is to know and understand your own capabilities and limitations and then to pace yourself, allocating and prioritizing your time, your attention, and your resources to wisely help others, including your family.
Give a potion of your income and Offerings
One of the ways we can serve humanity is by helping  children, our brothers and sisters, through paying a tithing and a generous offering . used to help the hungry, thirsty, naked, stranger, sick, and afflicted both those locally and world wide. has helped millions of people through their amazing humanitarian efforts. All this service has only been possible through both the financial and physical support of many volunteer as people serve God by serving their fellowman.

Get involved in your Community:

You can easily become involved in your community, it only takes a little effort to contact a local group, charity, or other community program.
 Donate Clothing and Other Goods
You can donate all throughout the world your unused clothing, shoes, dishes, blankets/quilts, toys, furniture, books, and other items. Generously giving of these items to help others is an easy way to serve and declutter your home at the same time. When preparing those things you are going to donate it is always appreciated if you only give those items that are clean and in working order. 
Help Children
So many children and teenagers need our love- and we can give it! There are many programs to become involved with helping children and you can easily become a school or library volunteer and help them to grow as a responsible human being . 
Utilize Your Talents
 Each of us have been given talents from the Lord that we should develop and use to serve God and others. Examine your life and see what talents you have. What are you good at? How could you use your talents to help those around you? Do you enjoy making cards? Are you good with children? Offer to watch someone's child in a time of need. Are you good with your hands? Computers? Gardening? Building? Organizing? You can help others with your skills by praying for help to develop your talents.
