How obsessed are we
With our dramas of life
Seeming so real
Each one truly unique
But taking us away
From who we are

We identify with them
Thinking that’s our life
Unaware how their impacts
Psychological, psychosomatic
Some psychosocial too
Are getting deeply etched

We even tend to believe
Ours are the most
Challenging and crucial
Probably they are…
Yet it’s our narrative
Not the reality for sure

This compelling identification
With self-created stories
Has hijacked us already
Not even allowing a peek
Beyond our narratives
At our real self

Do we but realise
Whatever we identify
Ourselves with
Life simply starts
To function around that
Making it our reality

We aren’t limited edition
Script new narratives NOW
That are empowering
Fulfilling and transforming
Connecting each one to
The eternal I AM

DIWALI is here, and everyone has been busy cleaning their homes at a deeper level, decorating them, buying new clothes / accessories, and not to forget food - a wide spread of the choicest delicacies being prepared. Being a Festival of Lights, the focus is largely on lighting up the place as well.

We are so completely engaged in all these preparations that we seldom pause to ponder over the real purpose / significance of Diwali. Shall we have a look at it today?

Diwali is celebrated on the darkest New Moon night of the Hindu calendar. This festival of lights symbolizes the victory of light over darkness, hope over despair, awareness over ignorance. While lighting the lamps this year in our homes and outside, shall we go beyond our perceived inadequacies to simply accept, embrace and appreciate our own selves, thereby allowing our inner light to shine through.

While cleaning our homes so thoroughly, can we also cleanse ourselves of our regrets, grudges, anger, guilt, jealousy, frustration, pettiness, judgments, etc. that we may be carrying?

This Diwali let us truly liberate ourselves from our limiting beliefs, our self-imposed shackles, and our own darkest corners, opening the pathway to life itself becoming a celebration.

A very Happy, Happening, Prosperous, and Fulfilling DIWALI

DASHA HARA is a Sanskrit word which means removal of following ten qualities within..
Ahankara (Ego)
Amanavta (Cruelty)
Anyaaya (Injustice)
Kama vasana (Lust)
Krodha (Anger)
Lobha (Greed)
Mada (Over Pride)
Matsara (Jealousy)
Moha (Attachment)
Swartha (Selfishness)
Hence, also known as "Vijaydashami" signifying "Vijaya” over these qualities.
As I read this message, I realised that these ten qualities exist inside all of us. But we often treat them like step children, as if they belong to others, but definitely don't belong to us. The more we disown them, the more they just spring up in our life.
Instead of thinking of their removal, can we learn to accept n embrace each one of them? As we do so, they become our friends and cease to have a hold on us.
This Vijayadashami, let us truly own them up instead of hating them, and learn to go beyond them....
Happy Celebrations

Why Life Coaching?

As Human Beings, we keep going through an ongoing stream of dilemmas in life. The paradox however is that the dilemmas are so widely diverse, and yet so universal, so large and sometimes so small, yet seemingly significant.

What should I wear today?
Can I trust this person?
Should I express my anger, or play safe?
Is this person really appreciating me, or being sarcastic?
Should I invest in these stocks, or not?
Can I take the plunge to quit this job and start my own dream project?
Do I want to take the responsibility of marriage and children?

The list seems endless……

How we wish there was some way to know the answers instantly, miraculously! Google has become our digital God, providing us in one click all the information we need. But alas, it only gives us more information, increasing our knowledge bank. Now the question is how much do we put this knowledge into action? How much of it do we assimilate? Some of us may well be connecting to our IQ and EQ, but what is our wisdom quotient.

While one is pondering over all this, someone tells us about Life Coaching. One of the first questions that pops up is, “Do I really need Life Coaching?”

Instead of depending on someone to answer that for you, you can simply have an enquiry within by asking yourself: 

     Am I truly satisfied with life, or am I being resigned to it? 
   Do I think life is treating me fair? 
   Do I love and respect myself?
   Do I continually seek other’s approval / validation?
   How is my Physical, Emotional and Financial health? 
   How fulfilling are my relationships – Professional and Personal? 
   Would I like to get another chance in some area of my life? 
   Do I know my unique abilities, hidden resources, and how to utilize them? 

The answers to these will give you your own answer too. And if that answer happens to be ‘yes’, then it puts one on another survey trail, wanting to find out more about Life Coaching. Having gathered all the data, one is invariably back to square one, now facing the next series of dilemmas, which could be:

How do I choose a Life Coach?
What are some attributes I need to look for in a Life Coach?
Will this person really understand my issues?
What have been the experiences of their clients so far?
What should be the appropriate fees to pay?

And again the list goes on….

It indeed can span out to be an overwhelming decision. Some may decide to choose a Coach based on their accreditation. Other may do so on the basis of the fees, and yet others on the basis of referrals.

While the process goes on for finding out more about an appropriate Life Coach, how about simultaneously shifting focus to one’s own self by enquiring within:

What kind of results can I expect from this Life Coaching?
Which areas of my life can be addressed through this?
What would be my expected role in the entire journey?
How committed am I to contribute to my evolvement, while being facilitated by a Life Coach?

Read the testimonials to know other people’s experiences. 
Check your own intent and commitment to yourself.

Life Coaching is a journey that you may choose to undertake, not with the purpose of fixing yourself but with the purpose of accepting and appreciating yourself, and going beyond yourself.

Bon Voyage!
