A client came to me a couple of days back with so much pent up frustration...She asked me “why do I feel so stuck with my parents .. they don’t listen, they’re stubborn, they clam up when I try to explain things to them about their health. I have my own family to look after, I have my job and to top it all my parents are so difficult “. I heard her silently, letting her vent it out, empty it out.. She went on talking and I went on hearing...What came to my mind was .. Stop penting and start venting 🌧🌧
The problem is that We All need to VENT OUT, vent it out to someone. It’s very relieving , very therapeutic. It’s like womitting it out. We keep our feelings pent up inside us, all bottled up. This screws up our happiness. Trust me, We all need to get Bulimic when it comes to pent up emotions. Don’t hold the garbage in, throw it out. Anything which doesn’t gel , be it our throughts , our emotions,our feelings, our frustrations, our angst...it needs to be vented or thrown out. Again , I’m not going into the right or wrong of the situation or that she ( my client) shouldn’t have said what she did or should have said this...we need to be non judgmental also. honestly, stop being apologetic , stop judging, say what is bothering you.
The more we hold on to our emotions the more toxic they become. Emotions are nothing but ‘energy in motion ‘ and when they get blocked a disease is sure to follow. Our Energy or our ‘ prana’ flows through the 72,000 Nadis and the seven centres where they intersect we have the Chakras. At any of these energy centres or the subtle channels wherever there’s a blockage , an illness takes place eg if we are carrying some fear in our body the Root chakra will face a blockage leading to a pain in our knees. Undigested emotions lead to constipation, security issues cause pain in the lower back area etc etc. Whenever our energy highway is free of traffic jams , vehicles/ pranas can travel freely. Therefore, it’s very important to vent out your feelings or your emotions.. The late Louise Hay has very beautifully shown the different areas of our body where blockages or emotional issues lead to corresponding diseases. Cry, fight, blow up , scream .. but let go off the steam. Think of yourself as a pressure cooker, steam nahin niklegi toh cooker har halat mein phatega...Don’t hold on. Take a pillow and punch it, or stamp the floor, or tear the paper, or burn a picture BUT DO IT. Remember the film, ‘ Jab We Met ‘ in which Jeet tells Shahid Kapoor to take his ex girlfriend ‘s picture from his wallet and burn it and flush it... this exercise rejuvenated him.. it was very, very therapeutic. So throw out the toxicity as it is very contaminating. And the best is to speak it out, show your annoyance, put across your point of view.. Deal with whatever troubles you. Do NOT bypass an issue, do not bury it under the carpet , for what will come out later will be a monster and monsters are scary...🧛♀️
When we hold on to emotions for long it leads to depression, diabetes, high blood pressure etc. It’s good to Meditate. I’ve coined this phrase “Meditate, and don’t medicate’. Medicines treat us superficially without going into the cause. Practice of meditation clears the blockages at the energy junctions or Chakras so that prana can flow freely and uninterruptedly. In meditation our breath flows evenly through both the nostrils thereby balancing both sides of the brain. Chakras help the prana to flow in an upward direction making it less dence. As energy travels upwards it becomes freer, lighter and less restricted eventually transcending all the Elements. The ultimate aim of meditation is freedom , freedom from stress , from pain and yes, movement to enlightenment ✨✨🌻
It is important to go to the root cause of the problem and wrench it out. If parents annoy you please speak to them and voice out your grievances but remember they are your parents. Be kind to them. Old parents are like children who are difficult at times but they too need our attention. Our workload, our family are important and so are they. Speak out your concerns, hear out their problems. Build a healthy interaction. A flow of conversation is a must because anywhere the water stops flowing it leads to stagnation and stagnant water or feelings stink. Uncover the lid, open up your emotions, speak out , vent out, let the stink go..., I remember hearing a beautiful quote,of Guru Nanakji 🌺
“ ik ne kahi, dujey ne maani
Nanak kahen, dono gyaani “
🌺🌺Hello Zindagi 🌺🌺
Some people lie inadvertently, don’t blink an eyelid when they do so or let’s put it in the proverbial way” lie like a Cretan”. I’ve seen children lying, adults lying and oldies doing so. Some lying has guilt attached to it while others have no remorse to it. Some do so by swearing on their children to make it look genuine and some swear by the holy text all the time specially in the Courts. When I would see people lying in my family ( extended ones too) I would wonder why !!. Just be honest and get done with it.. why do you have to cook up so many stories.. why get into so much crap .. why so much drama blah blah.
Politicians lie, actors lie, bureaucrats do , newspapers and news channels do, servants do, , friends do, your own kids do .. the entire world seems to be busy lying , infact we all are preoccupied in this game and with this game. Infact lying has become the norm of life. Day in and day out dramas are created and stories made , new warp and weft are woven. Honestly, life would crack up if honesty was the call of the day. What would be more interesting.. living your life with lies or with honesty.. infact the two spin the yarn of your life very delicately and finely.If one is a warp , then the other is the weft. The fabric of life is made up of the two. Those who claim that every word they speak is an honest one , then trust me that’s the first liar you’ve come across. Something as simple as “ tell him I’m not at home “, when somebody calls up is a classic example of lying . Will you get up and say to that person that you don’t feel like talking to him ... No, you won’t. These simple lies are meant to save the person the hurt you don’t want to inflict on him. Some lies are sweet .. just the way Baby Krishna told Mata Yashodha, “Maiyaa! main nahin makhan khaayo “. When lies have a conniving intention, an intention to hurt you then that’s a dangerous game . There are people who plot and plan with lies to tarnish your reputation, your peace of mind and your well being. Lies can malign the other, it can even send the other to prison , sometimes even lead to death. People who lie intermittently or who have a history of lying can cause chaos in other people’s lives. People lie to save their skin, people lie just to gossip, people lie to create fear in others, some lie out of guilt, some to entrap the others, some to seek revenge, some to glorify their power over others... the list of ways to lie and lying are endless.
This also becomes a Cause and Effect game.. the lie of one causes problems or saves the other from a problem and afcourse creates a Karma. Saving one or creating a problem for one is a full blown karmic game and sometimes one becomes a victim of something you haven’t done but have to go through thr entire gamut because some karma of yours must have ripened for you to go through the punishment. One man’s lie becomes the other man’s cry. I don’t know whether one should lie with Awareness , knowing fully well where and what you’re heading for. A small example would be .. should one avoid telling a person that he is in the last stage of cancer and has no chance of survival or speak the truth and tell him that he’s going to die. Honestly, it differs from person to person . I guess it’s very easy to sermonise and say that “ Do not lie”... We generally teach our children not to lie when we ourselves don’t walk the talk.
All I’d like to say is that I don’t want to carry the honesty placard very high for there are situations in life which kind of push you the other way round . Life is strange and so are the situations so judge for yourself and see that you don’t hurt the other . I’m not advocating anything .. all I’m saying is that whatever you do , do so with full Awareness and Conciousness... the KARMAS are huge💖
I’m reminded of the song from the film ‘ Teesri Kasam ‘..
“ 💕sajan re jhooth mat bolo
Khuda ke paas jaana hai
Na haathi hai na ghora hai
Wahan paidal he jaana hai💕
Fruits 🍇 are absolutely healthy, delightful , pre digestive starters and are great for the flora and fauna of your gut. They are lightest to eat and fastest to digest . I adore fruits 🍉 but learnt the Ayurvedic way of how to eat them .
Remember this about the Fruits- “Eat them alone or leave them alone”. Sour fruits are better to eat in the morning and sweet ones in the afternoon. For any kind of fasting or cleansing , eat only organic fruits. Never eat fruits after a meal.. it’s highly acidic due to the fermentation and causes gas and bloating. Have your fruit 40 odd minutes before any meal and NEVER AFTER. Try to have fresh juices instead of the packed ones if you’re a juice person. I’m not for juices as it’s just sugar that you’re sending inside.
My morning breakfast is a bowl full of fruits ..I’m a Vata-Pitta combination . I had suffered from constipation for a long time and I worked very hard to get rid of it. Constipation , firstly occurs due to undigested emotions and secondly, lack of fibre in your diet , thirdly, a sedentary lifestyle and last but not the least poor intake of water. These four can actually take care of any of your issues in life. Talking of fruit , try not to have your water melons before 12 noon. Fruits should be eaten when they are in season and ripe. Fruits that are artificially ripened and are not seasonal cause bloating and lead to the accumulation of food in the colon. A ripe and a chemical -free fruit has a detoxifying effect on the body.
Going by the Ayurveda way, fruits also get categorised according your body constitution ie whether you’re a Vatta/ air based type, Pitta/ fire or Kapha / water type. Fruits that are sweet and ripe are ideal for the Pitta constitution. Kapha type can take mildly sweet or sour fruits. Vata kind have low enzyme function and fruits can cause them gas so it’s better that they cook their fruits . Cooked apples with cinnamon are yum. Also they should be eaten in small amounts by a Vata type.
A lot us are aware that those shiny looking apples 🍎 or other fruits that have wax on them .. they may look very appetising but the wax binds the pesticides on the fruits preventing them from being washed off with water. The pesticides are a gateway to cancer and can cause problems in the endocrine and nervous system.
VEDA PULSE 💖The wonderful Ayurvedic non invasive health monitoring technique is available at Kaarmiic Connection. Come for a fully body checkup to see your constitution type with a full guidance to the kind of vegetables, fruits, meat-chicken fish ( in this also you’re advised whether the white part is ideal for you or the dark part) you can have besides the diary products, herbs, supplements, aromas that are ideal for you. If you’re a Vata type no Lavender or Chamomile for you😔. You will see the stress index of your body, your body adaptability, how your chakras are placed and also the health of each organ of your body . Yes, the Amazing VEDA PULSE will take you through all this in a matter of five minutes through your heart variability rate. Call me at 9910613234 to book an appointment.
🌺🌺Hello Zindagi 🌺🌺
I came across this beautiful line , “ it is hard to learn that life cannot be controlled “... 🌻🌻True! yet many of us do that with a feeling that it can be and should be. Life is abundant, enriching, rambunctious , constantly moving ...and something that’s in a spontaneous mode can certainly not be controlled. Whenever we try to control , suffering follows. I grew up under a controlling father and I too used my controlling clutches on my son in his growing years. Controlling wrecks your peace of mind and it was only a couple of years back that I could let go and when I did it was so enthralling and I felt as though I could breathe. I did it not out of choice but I was forced to do so.
A person who feels out of control is obsessed with the need to be in control. We see parents, in-laws, spouses, siblings, friends, who dominate you and control you. There’s always a victim and an aggressor. One needs the other to feed upon. Controlling is a behavioural issue which causes a lot of emotional pain, both to the victim as he’s being victimised and to the controller who’won’t let go . The more we try to control , the more out of control we feel. We don’t feel it’s enough.
The controller has to be vigilant all the time.. his control is related to self esteem, power, independence, anger, nurturing .., why because these are the issues of his life . Somewhere these are missing . He feels by controlling he’s creating a beautiful life . Creativity demands independence . What he doesn’t understand is that life is too beautiful to be controlled and you cannot control it . And try you must not. You have to surrender not because you are weak but because you believe that we all need ‘to live and let live’. When you believe in the beauty of life you cannot control it , you simply want to experience it.. experience it’s magnanimity, it’s magic, it’s spontaneity, it’s wholesomeness...With surrender we become co-creators of life and thus its here that the spiritual aspect comes in. Controlling, sometimes is another form of attachment or should I say over attachment. This attachment leads to suffering. There are Mothers who control their sons and cannot bear when these guys marry. These mothers are a permanent and prominent fixture in their lives. The boys are Mama’s boys and cannot think of annoying their mothers. Husbands who control their wives do so because the economic status is in their favour or they too have behavioural issues to handle. Wives who are controlling have self worth and self love issues involved. Siblings who control the less fortunate ones always have parents approval or parents who choose to look away . We have teachers in the class with great controlling streaks and who unleash their wrath on innocent kids. Controlled and controlling people are scarred and pained.
Controlling person can literally become the bane of existence for many around him. They wreck you emotionally and mentally. Acontrolling person is like a banyan tree under which you cannot grow, you cannot thrive. There’s no place for your creativity with him because for him it’s my way or high way. I grew up at a time when we had controlling parents specially fathers who always believed that they knew what was best for us . Somewhere I found it asphyxiating but you swallow your dream and let it go. But what was most amazing on my part was I chose to do what I suffered. It was only when my son refused to give in when he was 15, that the controlling streak of mine took a beating . I was a wounded person but still with no realisation. It was 7-8 years back that I began to introspect in all earnestness and realised where I had gone wrong. Slowly and carefully I started cutting the threads of the controlling pattern that I had knitted over the years. Each stitch that I cut I started feeling lighter, more carefree, less fretful and happier. Trust me , controlling is a very burdensome activity as you are at it all the time . The more spontaneous you get the more fun life becomes. You’re more energetic, joyful, caring , less guarded, more open , least conscious.. too many good things begin to happy
So guys those who love controlling, get out of that mode . Enjoy life, hug more, love more, care more, express more, 💕💕💕🤗🤗. yeh Zindagi na milegi dobaara 💖💖💖
Kal kya hoga kis ko patah

Energy vampires, energy rapists, energy suckers... how many times do you encounter people like these. They are there everywhere, in your house, at your workplace, in the form of your partners, your kids, your relations, your friends, your acquaintances... They simply DRAIN you and Pain you. They drain you emotionally and then mentally and physically. They latch on to you , suck your energy because they need yours to fill them up. These people are themselves emotionally and mentally a very wrecked lot. They need you to feed themselves. Right now I’m not going into their story as why they are like that !!!!!.
As children, and that too grown ones they yell at you , scream, shout , abuse, torment , scare the day lights out of you because their anguish is their food and that exchange that you encounter with them drains you as they are the vampires. We have parents and our own siblings who suck your energy day in and day out cursing you, abusing you and what not...We have bosses who live off your energy and we have colleagues who’ll torment you so much that you’re just physically short of being raped. It’s a huge emotional ‘ crunch’ that you go through day after day.. you dread these people, you want to avoid them, you give in for your own peace of mind. It’s like an emotional transfusion that you’re going through everyday.. devouring yourself, draining yourself after every encounter you have with these ‘ vampires ‘.
What do you do .. go through this heart wrenching process every time you meet them or avoid them . Avoiding is escapism. should you do that !!!Well , the fact remains you’re allowing yourself to be raped, to be drained, to be sucked, to be emotionally mauled..In the beginning I tried avoiding these ‘ suckers’ for my own sanity but later I realised why ‘ AM I’running away, why ‘Am I ‘scared ..It is ‘ MY energy’ and I am NOT going to let myself be sucked out of it. I’m NOT going to let myself become a victim of this ‘ emotional transfusion ‘ where my energy is being transfused into a person who needs my energy for XYZ reason. Now again when you enter the vortex of “ AM I” it gives you the choice, the power, the ability to transcend . The moment you ask yourself ‘ why AM I being pushed around’, you’ll get the answers yourself . The problem is that we never question ourselves, we just give in. When we question ourselves we become AWARE and awareness has a lot of power. ‘AM I ‘ is a very powerful antidote and we all need it for the goddamn virus which plagues us in the form of Energy Vampires. Trust me, we all value our energy and we all know we need ours very much for our own robustness. Why do we let others pull it out of us. The fact is that we’re scared, we’re weak and so we succumb. And also somewhere our own resource of energy lies depleted because we’re busy distributing it without bothering to see where it’s going. So wake up , Be Aware and see why are you letting it happen . The first step towards ‘consciousness ‘ is ‘awareness ‘and the more aware you are the less you’ll let yourself be depleted. So get out of that victim mode . The only antidote that’s available to each victim is a bag full of AWARENESS. All we need to do that is to zip it open. Keep it with you all the time , everywhere. It’s the biggest resource, a booster for us . So swing through 2019 with full Awareness 🌺💖💖💖.🌺🌺Hello Zindagi 🌺🌺
I was just thinking this morning Our journey starts from ‘ Who I Am’ to ‘ Who Am I’...the difference is subtle yet very, very huge. I’m sure we have heard so many people say that , specially here in India “ tu janta nahin mein kaun hoon”, simply put , it is” Who I Am”. The game here is all about ego, power, I , Me , My. It’s about association, about domination, possession. When the “ I” comes before “am “ then it’s a typical ego journey in which most of us are indulging day after day. When the “ Am” comes before the” I “, then I’m a seeker.. I’m searching, I’m hungry . This is too is a journey but more of a quest where I want to know ‘ who am I’ and why I am here, what is my life’s purpose.. why have I come here on Earth and to do what. From’ more’ I move to ‘ beyond’. I’m travelling but now my journey is not about ‘me ‘, it’s about my association. From ‘I’ness I begin to move to ‘One’ness. Both are singular but in the latter the plurality gives me the finesse of being One with All and All in One. In the ‘ who I am’ I’m traveling outwards and in ‘ who am I’ ,I’m traveling inwards. This movement from ‘outwards ‘to ‘ inwards’ makes me a seeker, as the dynamics changes. Nothing in this Universe remains constant. We are all moving from one place to another, from one energy to another. This dynamism is very powerful, very creative.. 💕
Journey we must and we do but where !!!that is what the Quest is about. Within or Without.. how amazing these two words are .. As I move ‘ within’ ,I am seeking to find myself. When I move outwards then I am ‘ without’ myself. When I ‘am’ without myself how can or will I search for myself. As we start working on our chakras, the travel upwards makes the energy go subtler. From the Root chakra to the Ajna Chakra, the energy is getting more and more refined. I’m travelling from me to us to oneness.
What got me writing this was the 2019 messages that have been sent across and received by all of us today. Sending and Receiving, just with a click on our mobile , all so mechanically. Similarly we are sending and receiving trillions of feelings, thoughts, actions .. all kinds of energy.....so mechanically. IS there a “ within” or “ without” to this . Is there a travel from “ I Am “ to “Am I “ 🤔🤔🤔Think about it , it’s just the first day of 2019
As I breathe in the second last day of 2018 I look back at the rest of the 363 days with a smile for the year was nothing short of MAGIC 🎉The first day of Jan saw me in Sona doing my Acharyaship in Mahavastu. From there I moved to travel on to Udaipur, Jodhpur, Hydrabad , Bangalore, Dubai to teach and to be taught. It was also my first exposure to teach abroad and I sure had a swell time . It was a fun filled year . I had always been a nervous flier but I can say this year made me adept at it. Boy, At the age of 57 I took my exam to become a qualified therapist of Past Life Regression. I also conducted a workshop on it with my dear friend Kanicka . I started with my own diagnosis skill with PARE or Psychic Aura Exploration andReading and did a reading of 70 odd people with a success rate of 95% .
Ahhhh🌺I’m kind of enjoying my new found energy ,my passion , my movement , my growth , it’s so surreal... life never ceases to amaze you provided you believe in its spirit and challenge. It changes you, charges you,pushes you, nudges you, jumps at you , enthrals you... I went through all this enjoying every bit of it. It all felt like a symphony where every cord and scale moved so harmoniously. Yes the year 2018 was a beautiful song , I can still feel it’s echo in my ears💕💕
It was a personal year 4 for me 💝.. plenty of effort which happened effortlessly..I Enjoyed hosting some real amazing workshops and facilitators at my beautiful well being centre , Kaarmiic Connection. I hosted some incredible workshops on Akashik Records, Autowriting and Past Life Regression. I got to conduct workshops on Whatsapp too. I also conducted free meditations as a part of my yogdaan. My entire journey would have been impossible without the support of my husband. There aren’t enough words to thank my incredible staff specially Nita who cooked for all the workshops and Amar Singh without whom Kaarmiic Connection and my house cannot function . Utter gratitude to them .
As I say my bye bye to 2018 I also want to tell it that I loved every day of it and enjoyed my journey through all the days. My gratitude to my all my teachers who taught me and to all my students who believed in my ability to teach them. Hugs and love to all my friends and everyone who touched my life.Iwish you all a happy New Year and may the coming year help you all to soar high and reach your dreams 💝💝💝
🌺🌺Hello Zindagi 🌺
I'm a huge believer of Switchwords... for me they are no less than miracles. Infact once you tap into the ocean of the subconscious mind you open the door to miracles. Subconscious mind is the store house of memories which go back into so many lifetimes. Once we dive into this ocean many a mysteries start unravelling. One of my favourite Switchwords is REACH. I use it very often as I have this horrible habit of misplacing things specially my glasses and my cupboard keys. I also use it for clearing traffic....
Day before yesterday I misplaced my glasses. I looked everywhere specially my handbag and both I and my husband went through the bag again and again. It was then I started chanting the word REACH and again when I looked into the bag I found the case. I was speechless for I thought some Divine hands had put my glasses back into the bag. Even my husband was wonder struck. Trust me, there's huge magic in Switchwords. You may think I'm warped or maybe crazy but the magic of Switchwords is beyond the logical mind. The more you bring logic and rationality into such things the more things move away from you. The more you are in flow the more things happen for you. This is what the book Secret also says. When you're in total synchronisation with the Universe magic begins to happen. I'm a believer of magic. Try Switchwords for money, health, relationships, exams, healing, even cancer. I use it for so many things ... Trust the Universe and believe in its power and you'll see magic everywhere and in everything... Hello Zindagi - Aalkkah Rajvansh
Our lives are not our lives as we let others opinions govern us day in and day out. When I buy something for my house I also have this at the back of my mind that, will This particular thing that I'm buying, wipe off the smile from ' X's 'face' and this of course is going to give me immense pleasure... the other thought is that should I take X along with me to buy a particular item as I value her opinion a lot. Either way it doesn't matter whether what I bought gives me happiness or not.... what mattered was how it mattered to the other person!!! A comment from the other that it's not nice enough ruins our happiness. The fact is that we have given the remote control to the other who decides whether we have the right to remain happy or not.
A barrage of frustrations and disappointments follow when we don't trust ourselves.. our belief rests on the beliefs of others. The critical devil in us is quick to raise its ugly head now and again prodding us not to trust our own judgment. How we love to judge and be judged. Something in us tells us' hey isn't it fun when you feel low'... The lack of faith and belief in ourselves is highly detrimental, lowering our self-esteem. But who cares about ourselves. We love it and In fact quite look forward to the fact when somebody judges us and that too with a snigger. Opinions of others matter how so ever stupid or cruel they might be. But we have all conditioned ourselves to wear this straitjacket where we feel small, stupid and unworthy.
How many times have you handed over your remote control to somebody else.. Ask yourself?
Just for a change think the other way round and say " What others think of me is none of my business ' and I don't care two hoots about it... and have a good laugh about it.... Hello Zindagi - Aalkkah Rajvansh
I joined Yoga at the Sivananda Institute for Yoga in 2006 and have been practicing since then. I'm not a walk your health person nor I'm the gym kind as I find it too monotonous. The loud and jarring music in the gym gives me more palpitations than the walk or the run on the tread mill. I'm very much a yoga person and find it more soothing when I do the asanas while I exhale and inhale letting it have a very balm like effect on my limbs and emotions. Sivananda makes us do the 12 sets of Aasanas which work on every muscle, bone and your blood circulation. A bit of pranayam includes the Kapalbhati and the Anulom Velom. What I find most invigorating is the Surya Namaskar, again inclusive of 12 postures and by the times you finish 6-20 sets your body and mind are so refreshed that you're all geared up for more.
I still haven't been able to do the Sheersh aasan or the head stand for all these years but somehow now I feel I'm all ready and more determined to do it . Maybe now I'm in synch with the dynamics of the world being upside down also or maybe my rigidity is finally crumbling to pieces. I had been fairly rigid in my attitude about a couple of things which now I've begun to shed realising how useless and unnecessary they were. I' had held on to emotions which had a lot of gunk and goo and carried with it an ugly baggage which was very heavy. As I began dropping the excess i realised how light I felt and also less claustrophobic. Rigid attitude and belief lead to so many psychosomatic issues and a time comes when it also warps your entire being. With a rigid mind and a supple body I continued with my yoga.. but when I added meditation to it in 2013 I felt a huge shift within me. The crust began to fall as the core began to open up. All of a sudden a buoyant feeling came over me and I felt as though I had been set free. The mind began to exercise so much of suppleness and I could feel as though I was flowing. This enigmatic flow was very dynamic as it changed so many thought processes of my life. I was in flow, I was in acceptance, I was in grace.. so free, so unburdened and so unbuttoned.
Touch base with yourself and understand your own self and take the responsibility of who you are and where you stand mentally, physically and emotionally. Flexibility and flow should become your core for when you flow… Zindagi Gulzar lagti hai, - Hello Zindagi, Aalkkah Rajvansh
