Should I quit my job to be with my child?

Are you about to plan for a child? Are you working and worry on how would you manage your kid and work? Are you feeling guilty because you leave your child and go to work? Are you the one who really looking for an answer on whether to work or quit?

We all are in dilemma and this situation is faced by most of the women who doesn't have a family support And weighing the pros and cons women decide and devise an answer.Just for e.g. if there is a financial obligation , no matter how much your heart bleeds, you still need to continue your job leaving your child with a home maid or day care. Or if you one really determined to continue your work, you would make sure to be on board.

Just a year back, I was in the same situation and I didn't knew what needs to be done. There were well wishers advising me "to quit" and "not to quit". We hired a maid , took  couple of months work from home, my mother came to settle down things. Read almost all websites and journals to seek an answer but all in vain. I guess I tried my level best to stay close to my kid and still working.But, somehow it wasn't happening.

 I used to go to work with a heavy heart and always used to miss my kid. Or if I had been working from home, just sitting in adjacent room and listening to your kid crying and howling , you need to be stone-hearted to get over it. I was really looking for an answer, and I sat the other day during my regular Reiki pratice I asked Reiki to provide me with a solution and balance things as it was pretty much chaotic. The answer I got was - Go With The Flow!!

And I decided to QUIT!!

As I was in my Reiki session, my heart only portraited me as a mother and so I had an answer.

While leaving your child does your heart beats faster than normal? Are you really anxious on how your kid would be in day care/ with maid?  Well, thousands of parenting websites and journals would say , that's natural. Then why do I need to tread in opposite direction?  We are so much used to sail in opposite direction that we never consciously know about it.

Our body at each and every point signals us, for anything wrong or problematic issues, but we are so engrossed in "maya[Magic]" and luxuries of life that we hardly notice them. Just for eg : if your shoulder is paining[unless its a muscular pain] did you ever thought "its because you are taking to too much responsibilities and it could go away once you delegate some". The very common "headache" is also a signal that your mind needs rest, but we would take a painkiller and then get busy with our laptops for Facebook or on our smart phone midnight to check whatsapp message. You just need REST!

Motherhood is a very special thing and there is a reason why it has been gifted to women. We should respect it. Separation Anxiety in kids actually leads to more stress, anger and frustration. Children are the purest soul and all they need is lots of love and love. You may have seen or heard in news kids [ current generation] getting angry and frustrated easily and also they are low in confidence and many kids actually go into depression. One of the reason is separation  from the loved ones.

No matter what, how good your day care is or how educated your home maid is ,the love and affection showered by a mother is incomparable. And its child birthright to get it. Just as mother's milk is like "amrit[sacred nectar]" to your little angel and so is your love and care.

Mamma... Please be with me always :)

No Regret

Often it happens, we hurt our close ones,knowingly or unknowingly and when we realize we feel bad/guilty about it. Specifically "Women" in that matter. [I dont mean to say that martians dont feel bad, but women in general are more affected is what I feel].

DON'T REGRET!! Ask for forgiveness and also forgive others. Don't let the seed of anger,frustration,guilt be implanted in you. Just Let it GO....

You wake up early morning get ready on time and as you come to parking and unlock your car you realize you are having flat Tyre, you get late for office, miss the meeting and eventually boss scolds you , you are already annoyed and when your wife or team member ask for assistance - you simply blow out. For the same scenario if you are not that senior in office and unmarried, you just let that annoyance remain within you, you simply go back to work with may be an intention - I need to find a new job or I'll see him!!

In both these scenario you are implanting a seed of anger [ negative energy] within you, which will affect you may be causing physical pain or mental stress and overall influencing your spiritual being.

If you read the above scenario again, you would see nobody planned for this. right? Did you already knew [even if you had, was there a way you could have avoided it] that you would be scolded in office today and you would let that frustration passed out to your wife? No .right? So then why feel guilty about it? But the best part is your "REALIZATION" that you hurt someone, that it self is a big thing and many ignorant never ever feel that.

Once you "REALIZED" it, if possible say sorry or else ask Reiki for forgiveness [you need to be true with your intentions] and also forgive your boss as he scolded you [ may be even he had a bad day ;)]
Don't look back again and regret!! It was meant to be that way. Just MOVE ON...

Is Reiki Working?

Many of my student had asked me this question, Its not working for me somehow, or How do I know reiki is working?

I don't have a definite answer, trust me as we are so much out of touch of our prana and mind, that we always have a doubt on our instincts and behavior.We mostly are slaves of our minds, or our doubts and start applying logical thinking to any solution we see.

So above statement holds good for Reiki as well, its an energy vibrating at "x" frequency, is it working on me? How do you know? Unless I see some positive results, or some miracle happening. That's not the only sign of its working.

Reiki works at a very deeper level, which to experience also we need to practice it for years and actually feel its vibration, now I don't mean that people who believe or feel some vibration, or heat, or itchiness is all fake during reiki practice but what I mean to say is you really need exhaustive practice to actually feel it at physical level.

If a person is practicing Reiki or taking healing sessions, Reiki is Flowing  for sure, but would that person feel it depends [ on following] and may vary from one individual to another:

  • Mental State
  • Receptivity
  • Nature of his work
  • Past Seeds 
  • Practice Session
If the above points are in good shape, and still person has doubt, consider following :

  • Was the Attunement proper? If you have a doubt, you can ask your teacher to attune you again or may be you can look for new teacher as well.
  • Be Patient
  • Trust, Trust and Trust yourself. Trust that the Reiki is flowing.
  • Practice it positively, daily
  • Jot down your feelings during the reiki practice session and if possible analyse them

And for sure it would pay off :)

Doubt Bigger Than FAITH

It was during my Reiki classes that I asked - Maa, how can you be sure that it can be done? And she replied to me, when your FAITH is bigger than your doubt, all executions are possible.

This statement was like golden words for me.

How many times we ourselves doubt our own existence?

I'm fat!!
I'm not goodlooking!!
I may not clear my exams!
My promotion is due, but dont see any possibilities
I'm suffering from this ailment or the other
And the list can go on and on...
Then, why should we blame or feel bad about it? We believe these things and so we receive back the same. Shouldn't we believe in ourselves more than anybody else. Nobody can know your potential unless you believe it lets show that to world that I believe in myself and can do anything and achieve all that I desire and deserve.

Remember - The Power is Within YOU!

Mornings - The Beauty Of It!

Mornings are just so powerful and spiritual.

Since ancient time we are advised to get up early and get into action, but with the modern age and lifestyle we have sort of being a night person. Hooking to tv, internet, phone or late night calls.

How you start any task does say much about how it would be executed and what would be the end results. Many people start with morning newspaper, and they are all filled with negative thoughts so our mind is at the start of the day disturbed leading to further frustration in case the same person encounters any other problem during the day.

How about starting the day at calm pace and with relaxed thoughts. Again there are many ways of doing so...

  • Reading a spiritual article/book
  • Listening to bhajans
  • Yoga
  • Meditation
  • Prayer
  • Walk

A human mind is just a wired connection which takes input and produces output , so how should be the input? The clean and clear mind is much more capable of inventing..discovering...exploring infinite possibilities which a disturbed mind is not.

Start your note with a fresh note - soak in the energy mornings give you...pure, plain,true,bright,energized,simple.... charge yourself and see the results!!

What Has Life Taught You?

We are so busy with our daily routine and luxuries surrounding us that hardly we have ever thought if the life which we are enjoying had made us a different person or anything which we have learnt from it?

Any lesson to be shared?

Just another thought the other day - and then I really thought about it if any lessons I have learnt apart from what delivered by others?

There are millons of quotes shared by people but anything which is just delivered by you?

If you think you are special - the reason for being special has to be a lesson which life taught you. Coz everybody is special and for everybody life has something special waiting to be explored.

My lesson of life - Relationship are the treasure of life and it can really be ruined by your ego , anger ,stubbornness and arrogance.

What has life taught you?
