A Tryst With Destiny

Hi Guys!!

Of all my blogs about the sessions I conduct and the outfits I wear, this one is a little different! In fact, if you do not believe in miracles or in the extraordinary potential each of us have to attain the highest potential as humans, in enlightenment and in the power of now, you may as well skip this post. I am not usually someone who opens up about my deepest inner feelings as I feel they are very exclusive special experiences which cannot be described as beautifully. But if this one post of mine can change the life of even one soul for the better, I am ready to take the plunge.

Bangaluru Ashram - My Guru Story

Wondering the amount of tapas I must have done to be able to pose here!! šŸ˜€
Bengaluru Ashram – My Guru Story

So here goes, I was a usual kid , born in a middle class family, at the age of three I had realized that everybody around had someone they called dad and I didn’t. So I went and asked my mother, and she told me he had passed away. Too young and innocent to really understand the value and the difference it would bring in my life in comparison to the usual kids, I moved on. I played, I studied, had strange, super strange, weird and wonderful experiences as I grew up. But I always felt there is something that is missing, I was not very satisfied, a little stressed and lost. Being an achiever in almost everything that came my way, I hit rock bottom when at the age of 16 every aspect of my outer life was in a mess and it certainly affected my inner world too. That feeling of incompleteness and stress just grew exponentially and I just knew I had to keep all of this aside and focus on rebuilding my inner self. Being an introvert, I did not know who to talk to and had a feeling that only I can cure myself. I was always interested in reading self help books, when little girls read Nancy Drew, I was reading how to win friends and influence people. As the urge to calm the mind grew, I started creating my own meditation, was listening to the power of now audio book.

I hadĀ  attended an introductory session of the ART OF LIVINGĀ  yes program happening for kids, I wanted to attend it to learn meditation and calm my mind, but I did not know how to tell my mom I needed it. So I just let it be. But then, my mom’s best friend, who coincidentally was also the one who came for the intro talk in school, introduced art of living to my mother. She insisted my mom to take the course. At this point I remembered that I have always known and wanted to be a part of this organization. When I was in second grade,while playing I had seen a picture of this graceful man, wearing a garland of lotuses in my friend’s house, with that contagious smile on his face. Usually not a person to ask so much,I asked her “Who is he?” , she and her father smiled and answered : “He is our Master, our guru“. Wasn’t sure if I understood what it meant, I just said alright and continued. After that, I had seen this same man in the news a few times, he looked authentic. When my mom was joining another organization, I actually wanted her to join the art of living as I felt their leader is someone genuine. But I did not say anything because I had no idea of how you could join one. But then after my 12th standard, I insisted on doing the Youth Empowerment Session course, and was desperate enough to do it with my scholarship money. The best decision of my life so far!!! The peace I experienced after the very first session of Sudarshan Kriya is always going to be inexplicable. It has hundreds of benefits that are listed on google and yet everyone has their own story with it.I am not really going into the technical details of it as all that can be found on google, all I would say is it is a very important part of my daily chores and everyone should experience it one in their lives.

Bangaluru Ashram - My Guru Story

The inner happiness after doing sudarshan kriya: it reflects
Bengaluru Ashram – My Guru Story

But I was too young to really accept someone as a GURU in my life. I was very self reliant and only accepted him as someone who could guide me and give me good experiences and energy to move forward (which is what he essentially does). I had read that being in the presence of an enlightened person would uplift my energy and I wanted to experience it. Then came this news that Sri Sri Ravishankar was coming to Pune. People were eager to meet him and were all arriving at the airport. Even I was called so I went too. My only aim was to feel his presence and know what it feels like. So I just stood there in the corner while everyone else was creating a mess in excitement. And suddenly in a few minutes, I felt like someoneĀ  has arrived, I just told myself to feel his presence, in no time, I was lost in deep meditation, I don’t know what happened after that , until he just came and stood next to me. I looked at him, he looked at me and automatically in a few seconds, I touched his feet and stated walking behind him. I saw people laughing, crying , screaming “I Love You Guruji”,the most popular sound when he is around, and I said to my amused self, that ya this happens when you see someone you adore, be it your family, your favorite superstar or anyone.And when he was gone far far away, I was still looking, and suddenly, the bouquet of blood red roses he had in his hand directly fell into my arms. I remembered how my ex boyfriend had recently told me to buy a red rose for myself for being so sweet, well someone was willing to offer the whole bouquet.

I just went home, and told everyone that I met a celebrity and put up a facebook status :D. But slowly and gradually, as I moved forward in life, I realized he was more than a celebrity for me. I saw unlimited grace, I experienced the divine blessings showering on me every moment.The moments around him are the ones I have truly lived and cherish. The usual problem with good people is they feel weak and are considered weak. When you know you have a support system that will never let you down, you walk with the strength of the truth. And trust me if your intention is pure and your will is strong, no power in this world can stop you from achieving what you deserve.

My Guru Story

At least each one of us should visit the art of living International centre in Bangalore once, It would surely be a different kind of trip, an inner journey while you witness one of the mega kitchens and other magical happenings.

Don’t disregard before you try, the beauty out there will surely out of joy make you cry!!

Yoga Poses For Glowing Skin

Admit it!We all love that naturally glowing skin more than any make up product that conceals it don’t we?!!

Our skin is more or less a reflection of our well being. The hair and skin are one of the best indicators of our mental and physical well being. Of course there are some that seem to be blessed with it, but most of us reflect what we eat , how much we exercise and how relaxed and stress free we are (does this stress you or does it make you feel better?).

Well, worry not because we have yoga to the rescue! Yoga actually calms the body and mind, by paying attention to the breath, we harmonize our system and feel more relaxed(oops!the secret is disclosed). Along with that, improving blood circulation throughout the body flushes out the toxins and helps nutrients reach the required areas.

So here I will start with some of the easiest postures that I regularly perform and you can start right away to achieve that glow you totally deserve.

1.Vajrasana : Vajrasana or the diamond pose is one of the easiest and most effective pose in Yoga. Very popular for it’s benefits in digestion, it was one of the common practices in the Indian households in the past.

Vajrasana cures many stomach related problems and improves digestion. A well digested food leads to better nutrition reach and therefore healthier skin and hair. It also stimulates blood circulation in the body. A few minutes of it will even calm your mind down. Will release a post shortly on it’s numerous benefits besides blessing us with outer beauty.

2. Shishuasana: Shishu asana or bal asana is one of the most relaxing poses to do, of course nothing beats Shavasana right?!

It improves circulation of blood in the body and relaxes the nervous system to a great extent, thereby leading to a stress free you. It is also said to alleviate stomach related problems like constipation and improves flexibility of the back and neck muscles. Also improves breathing style.

3. Trikonasana: The triangle pose, is very similar to what we did in our PT sessions in school isn’t it?

Apart from cutting the flab from your love handles, it also improves the texture and health of your skin. What more can a girl ask for right? Besides it also opens up and strengthens the sides of the body. Overall a must do asana for the health freaks.

4. Ustrasana: The camel posture is again a pose with multiple benefits. From providing flexibility to reducing fat, there is nothing this posture will not provide you with.

The pose stretches the back and therefore helps reduce back pain, relaxes the neck, back and abdominal muscles thereby also cures stomach back and neck related problems. It cuts the fat deposit in the areas including thighs along with providing blood circulation to the face and head and stimulates the endocrine glands. This is very helpful for overall well being and beauty that reflects it.

5. Matsyasana: Matsyasana is famously called the “destroyer of all diseases” as it is very helpful for overall well being and good health.

It improves posture which automatically improves circulation and breathing. Along with that it stimulates the abdominal and back muscles making them stronger and healthier.

6. Padhastasana: The forward bending pose has many variations, like placing the hand above or below the foot, touching your nose to the knee.

This is superb for the core muscles,it strengthens the core and the lower back muscles. Improves digestion and of course circulation to the head and face region along with tucking your tummy.It also improves stability.

Padhastasana

7. Adho Mukha Shwanasan: The downward facing dog pose is more of a fun pose you do give your kids a ride!!

Very effective in removing fatigue or stiffness. It relaxes the mind and body. It also improves circulation of blood to the brain cells (So beauty with brains : check!!).

The Time I fell In Love With H&M Once Again

Hey Guys!!

How have you been? I hope you are as awesome as ever!!

So the month end is hereeee..which means most of us are out of our shopping money and realizing how we can survive with the basics. With the same thought I went window shopping to the nearby mall Phoenix marketcity which is one of the largest and the most popular in PuneĀ  as I finally had some hours for myself last weekend.

Somehow, I knew where to go (or where not to go may be coz now all I can do is wait for the next paycheck!!). I directly entered the H&M store. And as usual, it did not disappoint me at all!! Found really cool stuff, some on sale and others at reasonable enough rate. Will be posting more looks from theĀ  h&m collection I recently bought.

And here’s the first one. As we all know, we expect to see mostly western clothes at h&m, so a slightly Indian blouse immediately caught my eye. I had to try it. Found a beige color blouse, and wanted to team it with a skirt or a palazzo. And what do I see next, a white palazzo, with black stripes printed on it.

Tadaaaa!!

H&M India

All smiles from the trial room to sweet home

I think this is a great look to try, it’s a little different from the usual and looks chic! You are sure to grab some eyeballs when you come out all confident and sexy wearing this combination.

The two can also be used separately, so this is multipurpose clothing!!

Another one from the look:

So guys, if you’re looking for something unusual yet sexy and not way too off beat, this is the look you can try. Stay tuned, got so much more to share. Till then:

Be simple! Look stylish!! šŸ˜‰
