Rise & Embrace

When the sun rises, it isn’t the same.
It has seen things, people, life unfurling all over the world.
It has seen movements, stillness, storms and calm.
It has seen a lot before rising again with a new insight and light.

When you rise the next day, the new you will be someone who has seen a lot, felt deeply, cried, laughed, worked and stood still. The new you will have something more to reflect from your new perspective, wisdom and new discovered feelings.

Rise with a hope.
Embrace the change.
Lead the new day with acceptance and new found insight into life.

…until next time.

How does an ideal day in your life look like? – A Journal Entry

“Ideal is what comes and what you make of it.”

Dear Diary,
When I think about my ideal day, my thoughts instantly takes a turn towards a non-planned day with few adventures and just enjoying the flow of the day. Yes, there are many things which I wish to do like book reading in a café surrounding colors and plants, hot cup of tea with a pen and notebook near a flowing stream with the music of running water, chirping of birds and whispers of the trees, or maybe walking down the street and doing window shopping, but clubbing them into one ideal day is not my cup of tea.

I guess most of the people have their “ideal” stuff figured out, I did too. But as life unfolded in front of me, I tilted towards more of enjoying what comes my way and grow and glow with it. I think that’s how you are more open to life. Sure I love when my plan works, but I don’t mind spontaneity either. I rather embrace it. I used to get upset a lot in my early 20s when things didn’t go as planned and it kept me cranky most of the time. I released the plan with the blow of my fallen eyelash and wished for a more free and wild life.

So, my ideal day is a blank page of my book waiting to be filled with new things, experiences, people and feelings with different moods throughout the day and peace in the heart when I lay on my bed at night.

…until next time

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!
