Art Therapy – Self-Body State

“Whenever you go in the search of happiness, peace and strength, the way always leads to inward.”

This has always been true about living a good life. Bring the change in you, find everything within you and your life transforms. Today in the Art Therapy session, I had to lie down and close my eyes and breathe. I had to observe my breath and imagine the colors I felt inside my body while breathing. It was beautiful and quite relaxing. Then after 5 minutes, I had to paint all those colors on the sheet and create my ‘Current State of the Body’. Hence, the image you are looking at came in my mind (for the symbols I used google and drew some archaic symbols I found for the words I felt my body parts denoted)

Here’s a small attempt to denote my Body State:

My heart and my mind are always connected. All my life choices have been a balance of my heart and mind. I have never regretted anything, as I always knew that at that moment what I wanted and I chose it. They are dark in color because I am a highly emotional and sensitive person and whatever comes in my life, seems to have most effect on them. The green and yellow are my soothing colors and it flows beautifully in my body. The orange is somewhat the pressure of my physical condition and sometimes the anger or anxiety.

Coming to the symbols, Strength and Transformation near my hand denotes my belief as a writer. Being a writer makes me believe that I have the strength and the ability to transform my life and others through my words. In my heart I always carry Love and I believe this is the most powerful emotion and most empowering emotion in humans, and one must always carry it in one’s heart. The mind is like a Universe, it encloses unimaginable powers. Once a person believes in it and learns its force, him or her are bound to have a great life. The symbol of God over my head is that faith and hope in the Lord and oneself can help you achieve anything in life. Imagine you pouring water on your head, the water is the Divine power and it flows down all your body, and thus, the Lord always resides on your head. Last one is Peace. It lies in the middle of my heart and mind, connecting them and making my life serene. Whenever any storm hits the mind or heart, the peace is always there to calm.

Hope you enjoyed reading it and somewhere down the prose you also imagined your “Self-State” through my words.

When it’s all about affirmations

Lockdown has been hard on all of us. Keeping oneself engaged and happy all the time is difficult. In the beginning Netflix, cooking and mingling with family seemed fun, but now it bores us to death. Anxiety and nostalgia of going out is creeping on us, so I decided to replace my anxious thoughts into affirmations and trying on new things and learning is my way of spending lockdown.

So, here’s few thoughts I would like to share with you all and hope it brings hope in your heart and smile on your face.

Happy reading & happy lockdown!

Super Moon – A Night to Remember

There are times in life when you are completely mesmerized by the moment and tonight was one of those nights where the moon shone beautifully and turned the blues of lockdown into bliss. So, here is my experience of tonight, hope it reaches your heart the way it did mine.

It is one of those nights, breezy. Not one of the cold, shivery winds, but the ethereal ones which sweep off your soul into the night sky. It’s the night, where when you look up at the moon, silver-shining in all its glory, you can’t help but feel like its risen tonight, just for you. You transcend into tenderness and see yourself falling in love with the universe. The clouds, dancing around the moon, being playful by hiding the charm and you can’t wait for them to pass. You can’t wait for the clouds to take a swirl and you can again make love with the sight. Music, the serene whooshing of winds, surrounds you and syncs with the beats of your heart. Your entire being is filled with ecstasy and you are left with divine gratefulness for this moment.

Happy Reading!

Stay home. Stay Safe.

Lost Days & Nights

Among the lost days and nights
I found myself hanging around
with peace and happiness
with a cup of tea in the morning
and coffee by the evening.

I play along my childhood,
reliving the taste of home & food by Ma,
I sleep in the lap of love,
and learn in the shadow of Pa.
Among the days and nights
I lost the track of life
and found myself living.
