Make it real in your head

Every now and then I like to share a bit of a list-making frenzy with you. Actually, making lists is not my forte however today I am compelled to do so. I have decided that this year is the year it’s all happening and according to positive psychology and quantum physics the best way to make your dreams come true is to state them. Out loud, publicly and tell people. Make it real in your head. So here we go: 

1. Tune into presence. All the time. Sit in my sweet spot and trust. 
2. Read more books than last year…. (in process :D ) 
3. Learn Graphology
4. Spend a weekend in Rishikesh.  (Done) 

5. Spend a month in Kashmir.
6. Write an e-book/ course.
7. Be a better friend. (Sometimes I am terrible at keeping in touch and showing how much I care …. I want to do so more.)
8. Get clear on what is important in my life and welcome people who share the same values.
9. Practice Hypnotism.
10. Go gently. Don’t be so hard on myself.
11. Practice the art of allowing.
12. Tune into my Past Life to know more about my current life. Ö (Done)
13. Acting in a short movie (ooppss this is also Done).
14. Practice Past Life Regression Therapy.
15. Stretch myself. Physically. Emotionally. Spiritually. Try new things.
16. Play with children. 

17. Relax. Allow my body to fully relax.
18. Let go. Of control. Of knowing the outcome. Of expectations. Everything. I’m quite good with this but imagine how amazing life would be if I completely let go of trying to control it. If just showed up, did my part, shared my sparkle and let whatever may happen, happen. Wow! Just the idea blows my mind.
19. Don’t think too much.
20. Don’t think about what other people might think. It really doesn’t matter.
21. Have fun. All the time. (I do this anyway but there’s no harm in reminding myself.)
22. Have at least one afternoon/evening totally to myself per week. I need time alone to recharge.
23. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Don’t be afraid to fail. Move through and past those fears. Do it and see what happens. Either way it’s a wonderful learning experience.
24. Practice gratitude the moment my mind wanders into a realm of complaint. And any other time. It works so good and makes life amazing. 

25. Communicate my feelings and thoughts more clearly. Face to face. In spoken words.
26. Have more real, deep and meaningful conversations. I hate small talk and mostly I just move away from it. Perhaps if I could engage people to communicate a little deeper I could stay in the conversations for longer.
27. Be more accepting of others. I’m an idealist. A philosopher. A dreamer. I expect everyone else to be this way too. But I realize they’re not. And that’s ok.
28. Have patience. With life. With outcomes. With myself. With others. Things often just need time.
29. Define exactly what I want my life to look and feel like. Get clear on it. Write it out and go live life on my own terms. Use my imagination and then go beyond even that. High aspirations. No expectations.
30. Tell all the people I admire, how and why I admire them. They inspire me and deserve to know so.
31. Write down my dreams as soon as I awake. Something magical might come out of them.
32. Go on a road trip without a destination in mind. Discover new and wonderful places.
33. Minimize my collection of belongings. Do I really need all those books and things? Less is more I say. 
34. Expand my music collection. Open my ears to new and wonderful sounds. Try out something new.
35. Trust in the process of life. It is truly very amazing and magical, even when my mind tries to conjure up ridiculous ideas of defeat.
36. Go for Bungee Jumping.
37. Do a Professional Photo Suite.
38. Go for River Rafting

39. Meditate regularly.
40. Create a Magic Rock. (now I have it, it’s wonderful)
41. Purchase a Gautama Buddha Sculpture which I saw while meditating. (I have now this also)
42. Make search Books on Meditation. (oppss I purchased a book Meditations to heal your life by Louise L. Hay)

Tell me. Do you share any of these? What dreams are you going to fulfill this year?

A thought for Rameshwaram

Nothing special. Just the wish to write something.

I was looking for photos from Rameshwaram, when I came across this one. What good memories! Rameshwaram is a very special city, thanks to its concept, its creation and its symbolism. We have been fortunate to discover it with a guide who was really in love with this city and was able to make us share his enthusiasm.

Pamban Bridge
We are very grateful to him for sharing his passion with us. The Pamban Bridge is a cantilever bridge on the Palk Strait connects Rameswaram on Pamban Island to mainland India. It refers to both the road bridge and the cantilever railway bridge, though primarily it means the latter. It was India’s first sea bridge. It is the second longest sea bridge in India (after Bandra-Worli Sea Link) at a length of about 2.3 km.

City girl in Europe

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 31; the thirty-first edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for the month is 'Strangers in the Night'

Last week I went to meet my friend Vangelis who is a European guy, I met him in Delhi while attending one of my workshops. After that workshop he went to Thailand for another workshop. He came to Delhi last week only, and asked me to meet for a coffee.

As our plan we met at Khan Market Metro station, I saw him from back side he was in red top and green lower (very different type of dressing :)) and the coincident was I was also in same color. I wearied red kurti, green payjami with green duppta I dint noticed that but he noticed and said this to me. After that we went to a European restaurant and I was new in this kind of environment. I was lots of thoughts that “can able to adjust in this kind of atmosphere where alcohol and other drinks were serving like normal cold drinks and etc.”

Still I was with him and observing everything there, I can see lots of Europeans there, I was thinking like I am in between Strangers in the Night or I am not in India but in Europe. Their culture was very different from me, few Indians were also there but also modified like Europeans and these Indians and European were looking me like I was an escaped animal of a zoo just because of I was not fitting in the atmosphere, I was in fully in Indian traditional style and they all are in western.

There I met with his two friends also, they were waiting for him. One is a girl and another is boy. Girl was totally white and boy was also same but boy had long hair till his shoulder. They were talking and I was just observing the atmosphere and culture of western country. Boy was smoking continuously as well as drinking pomegranate juice regularly. I observed that both girl and boy were giving lots of face gestures while talking but in India especially male doesn’t do that.

Then I saw an Indian girl who was sitting alone in a corner and having a big cup of cold coffee and having a cigarette in her left hand and she was writing something in her big diary but she was the only girl who was in Indian style dress other than me.

In this entire situation we had our coffee as well as dinner also. He was busy in talking with her and mean while he introduced me to them and some time talking to me also. Like that my coffee meet it’s end with Strangers in the Night and he dropped me at khan market metro station. I was feeling like finally I came to India again.
