I have a hard time feeling grateful

“Feeling grateful for what you already have attracts more and more abundance into your life.”

Okay, I see. I have heard and read this statement for over a million times, but……..BUT I just dont feel grateful for anything at all. Yes, I have a house to live in but its not my dream home. I have a good paying job but I dont love it.

Namaste sweethearts. Welcome to another sweet and simple blog post on my website Healing Dreams. Talking about feeling grateful, I find it hard. Yes, I do. There is a lot that I want in my life and my mind remains stuck on all the glories that are missing from my life at the moment.

Writing down three things I am grateful for before going to bed seems to me a pretty useless exercise. I am sorry if I am offending anyone. But writing food, water and shelter everyday on my list does not make me feel any better. I know there are millions struggling for food, water and shelter but my mind just doesnt care.

In these hard times, it is extremely important to connect with the divine in order to realise and believe how truly blessed we are. Prayer and devotion is perhaps the only way to feel and express gratitude. Listening to prayers and participating in prayer meets nourishes the soul. I have been listening to holy verses from the scriptures and reading ancient texts. Through constant prayer and devotion I was able to see the almighty Lord Krishna as energy instead of perceiving him as a man as we usually do. I saw Kanha in love, I saw Kanha in compassion, I saw Kanha in forgiveness.

Gratitude is a divine attitude. We have a hard time feeling grateful when we are not in alignment with our inner divinity. Staying in alignment requires practice and patience. It requires constant surrender and letting go. It is perhaps the only way to find peace, bliss and relief in this chaotic world. Blessed be my loves.

Healing your self worth

Do you feel worthy enough? Do you feel that you are good enough? No????? WHY??????????

Namaste sweethearts. I welcome you all to another heart- warming and soul melting blog post on my website Healing Dreams. So you dont feel worthy enough? Right? Maybe because someone told you so. Maybe because your boss said that you arent good enough to handle a particular project. Or maybe because your in laws criticised your cooking skills. Or maybe because your dad blamed you for ruining the Christmas tree decor.

No matter what the reason was, you now feel as if you are not worthy of good things. My loves, this is not true. I remember that I once cooked halwa for my colleagues. It was quite all right but they made faces and refused to eat it. I felt quite hurt. It was a small incident but it left a huge wound on my cooking skills. One rainy afternoon, I decided to cook halwa again. I tried a different recipe this time and my family relished its taste.

Then there is one colleague at my workplace who from the very first day of my job was constantly putting me down. I had very less experience at that time and she would constantly humiliate me for that. One day as I sat meditating, I recalled the myth about Goddess Athena and Arachne.

Arachne was a young maiden who was a skilled weaver. Goddess Athena was the Goddess of war and handicraft. Instead of being grateful to the Goddess for her skill, Arachne was too proud and arrogant. Sick of her attitide, Goddess Athena challenged her into a weaving contest. Arachne wove a tapestry demonstrating how the Gods ill treated the mortals while Athena’s tapestry glorified the good deeds of the Gods.

The legend says that Arachne’s tapestry was way more beautiful but it was putting across a wrong message. Athena destroyed her tapestry in anger and cursed her with Hekate’s potion which turned her into a spider. Now all Arachne could weave was cobwebs.

I realised that my colleague maybe more skilled like Arachne but as long as I was putting my skills into good use, I would rise like the Goddess. Embracing this truth, I began to feel proud of my sincerity and dedication. Slowly, I regained my self confidence and my self worth. We even resolved our differences and now one year down the line, I have learnt way more than people do in several years.

The belief that we have to achieve or conquer something in order to prove ourselves worthy is dead wrong. Beloved, you are worthy of being loved and respected. You are worthy of being praised. What I am is not what I do or what I have. What I am is what I believe. I was listening to Lord Krishna’s bhajans and reading some ancient texts about him. I began chanting, “I am Madhava”, “I am Kanha”, “I am Krishna.” If the God you worship is worthy of love and respect, then so are you. In his divine light, all your karmas will be cleansed and you will be relieved of all burdens.

Blessed be my loves.

Dear Diary…………Self care for the soul

Namaste my loves. So I have planned to do these “Dear Diary” blogs where I am going to just write about my daily life, my routines, my days, my relationships and………I have seen vloggers vlog about their life and I am really inspired to see how this turns out. So, dear diary……..

8:10 am

My morning usually begins with me snoozing my alarm a couple of times. I have been wanting to get up at 6:30 am but these days I am getting up at 7:20 or 7:30 in the morning. I usually have to go to work at 9, so having some self care time in the morning is what I really like. So if any of you have any suggestions on being an early riser, please do post them in the comments section below.

So my day usually begins with me doing the laundry. No, I dont own a washing machine. I live alone and prefer to wash my clothes by myself. Woollen clothes get really heavy when they absorb water but I am getting used to it now. I usually soak my clothes overnight because I dont like doing my laundry before bedtime. Some people do that but………for me, mornings are better. Doing the laundry in the morning just makes my sleep disappear.

Self Care for the skin

Namaste beloved. I chose to do this post to highlight the significance of self care. Self care and hygge are the rising trends these days and I cannot agree more with the current theories. Self care for me is reading a good book by the fire sipping a nice warm cup of capuchino coffee. But there is another aspect of self care which has really made me feel relaxed and motivated.

shutterstock_465844508934107732.jpg

Skin care is a part of self care which cannot be ignored. No matter what kind of skin we have it needs care and love. I struggled with troubled skin for years until I learned the art of skin care the hard way. So today I am sharing some guidance which will help you adopt a proper skin care routine for yourself.

1- BE FLEXIBLE

Now in the early hours of the morning I already have a lot to do. I have to do the laundry, make my breakfast and get ready for work. Now if someone tells me to get up half an hour earlier for skincare I wont find it pleasant at all. So what I do is that I avoid using cold creams which take a lot of time getting absorbed into skin. I save them for the night while in the morning I use a quick absorbing cream and my favourite vanilla lip balm.

2- ENOUGH OF HOME REMEDIES

Eerie happenings at night? What to do?

Namaste my beloved friends. So tonight’s post is one which may sound spooky but its a bit dark and conflicting. I avoided writing this for quite a while but I feel that quite a lot of people are getting affected by this and this needs to be discussed.

Yes, I am talking about hearing strange sounds at night, sounds of tapping, wall scratching, footsteps, someone running about in the house…………..Now I wont comment on what it can be because opinions can vary. And neither is this post a substitute of any medical advice or information. Its a letter of love from my heart to yours.

Connecting with the Living Dead ( Safe and easy ways to talk to the dead)

Namaste my loves. Thank you so much for being here on this blessed night as we gather here in this sacred moment to honor those who have crossed the veil but are still hovering above us for protection. Yes, I am talking about our departed loved ones who are still keeping a watch on us. Sometimes we are so confused in life and those in the mortal realm fail to understand our sorrow and suffering. So tonight I will be sharing with you simple yet beautiful ways to connect with the living dead. I like to call them living dead because even though they have departed from this mortal realm, they continue to live in us and through us. Blessed be.

1- CANDLELIGHT JOURNALLING

For me this has been the simplest and safest way to communicate with my deceased Grandma. But you dont need to know who you are communicating with. The spirits will soon reveal themselves to you.

I suggest using a new scented candle and a new journal in honor of the ritual. Take a nice warm cleansing bath at night. Light the candle flame and be very careful with the fire. I usually use glass jar candles as they are pretty safe. I begin with chanting the Mahakali mantra for protection “Om Krim Kalikeya Namah” and then I visualise my beloved dragon wrapping me in her strong wings for extra protection.

I then invite the spirits into the candle flame and pay gratitude to them. I ask my questions and observe a moment of silence. Then I begin to write down in my journal anything that comes up without overthinking and judgement. Saying thanks again, I blow out the candle flame.

I then visualise my dragon breathing out her breath of fire and cleansing my home of any negativity. I read what I have written. If something does not feel right or does not resonate with me, I discard it instantly.

A Witchy New Year

This new year’s eve is going to be truly different for me. I may have felt this way on every New Year’s eve but tonight I am feeling connected to my witchy wisdom in a different kind of way.

shutterstock_1047707809

One of the most beautiful aspects of being a dark witch is that you fall in love with your flaws. Self love isnt about loving yourself when you have got it all figured out. Its about loving that confused you, that angry you, that irritated you, that guilty you, that annoyed you, that you who procastinates, that you who misses out on her workouts, who cheats on her diet, its about loving that you who very often falls off the wagon.

I am going to make so many new year resolutions. And I know that I wont be able to keep up with all of them, but thats okay too. So here I am going to share with you a list of my witchy new year resolutions and I know that you might find them a bit weird and funny, but thats okay too.

1– To buy lots of witchy jwellery.

This one has been on my list for quite sometime now. I would love to wear moon earrings and unicorn necklaces. Witchy bangles would be great too!

The Law of Attraction Series Part 3- The Magic of the glowing Lava

Namaste beloved. Welcome to another post in The Law of Attraction Series. I am so grateful to you for loving, sharing and supporting my work. If you wish to read any previous posts in the series, you can click on the links below.

So today we shall work with two really powerful Goddesses Pele and Cerridwen. Pele is the Goddess of volcanoes. She is the lava which is wanting to rise within us. So often we have felt this intensity of emotion which is saying,” This is not done. This is so unfair.” Pele is that force or rather that fire of passion which has the power to set things right. She is our inner rage, our inner pain and even our inner strength. Today as I sit here engulfed by sorrow, my inner Pele is screaming at me to rise and awaken. She is telling me that its time to go beyond the mortal realm. In our manifesting journey, when we are faced with troubles and obstacles, our inner fire lights the way.

Pele provides us warmth when our hearts feel cold. She warms up our numbed minds so that we may think as light workers. We dont need to know it all. Pele has ignited the divine fire of passion within us and she knows how to keep it burning. So whenever you feel as if you wont be able to manifest what you want, pray to Pele and she will make the flames rise up within you.

The Law of Attraction Series Part 2- The Lover and the Fierce Mother

Namaste my loves. I welcome you all to my next post in The Law of Attraction Series. Thank you so very much for loving, sharing and supporting my work. I am so very proud of you for being so consistent in your healing work. And if you feel as if you are falling off the wagon, remember that it happens with all of us and there is absolutely no need to worry about it.

So today we will be working with two Goddesses Mary Magdalene and Mahakali. Mary Magdalene was the beloved of Christ and she was also the first one to have witnessed his resurrection. She represents the divine love within us. She as the beloved of Christ also teaches us that we are 100% human and 100% divine as opposed to the concept of being 50% human and 50% divine which we have often been taught. I am currently reading “Mary Magdalene Revealed” by Meggan Watterson and she highlights this concept of allowing both the human and divine within us to express their selves fully. So if you feel as if your desire isnt divine enough, then remember that we as humans have human emotions and its totally justified for us to want dream homes, dream careers and lots of money.

The Law of Attraction Series Part 1- It all began with a lip colour

Namaste my beloved readers. Thank you so very much for loving, sharing and supporting my work. As I promised in my previous post that I shall soon be bringing to you a series of seven blog posts where we work with several Goddesses and experience the magic of the law of attraction, so here I am wanting to begin this wonderful journey with you. If you want to read about how and when I started believing in the law of attraction, you can read my previous post here.

So, on day one we are going to connect with two Goddesses Sati and Lilith who will support us, hold us and guide us with their love and power. And for all those who are still confused about the title of this post, I will be disclosing the reason behind it towards the end.

shutterstock_243050668

Goddess Sati was the beloved daughter of King Daksha. She was fierce and brave yet gentle at heart. She would chase after dangerous wild animals and she even dared to venture deep into the dark woods. Her father had always taught her that the one who conquers the land deserves all praise. Without the conquerer the land holds no meaning. The conquerer captures the land and turns it into a productive patch which can sustain agriculture and support the kingdom. To King Daksha, this meant selfless service. Sati grew up believing in her father’s ideologies until one day she met Lord Shiva. Shiva explained to her that when the conquerer had a motive behind capturing the land, then how could it be done selflessly. Shiva said to her,” When the motive behind any action is nothing but pure joy, only then can it be called selfless service.”

Like Sati, we too have been taught to have an ambition in mind. Like Sati, we too have been taught to struggle and strive until we have worn ourselves out completely. But what Shiva said is actually the reverse of it. We are not selfish when we do something for the love of it. We are selfish when we do something for any reason other than love. The movie “The shift” starring Dr. Wayne Dyer explains exactly this concept of the shift from ambition to meaning, the shift from doing things for a reason to doing something because it brings you joy.
