Everyday is a Go(o)d Day

I Dance in the Riches of all my Wishes

No Fear here, only Faith, Love and Good Cheer

Sweet Nectar of Joy fills my Soul, sour smell of stress does not exist

I’m on the right track, as I step forward Abundantly. Seeing no lack

I Declare Dominion and Authority upon my thoughts and feelings. Keeping the Kingdom wealthy with powerful words of Peace, Love and Happiness

Intention goes, where Energy flows. I send Praise and Good Will to all my Friends and Foes

As the day winds down, I count my blessings, I am Grateful for so many things, my list as vast as the Ocean

Sleeping Calmly to awaken Tomorrow with a Great Big Smile you can see for almost a Mile

Thank You Go(o)d

Challenges Come & Go

The Guest House by Rumi

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

Sufi Mystic & Poet, Rumi wrote the Guest House all the way back in the 13th Century. Today it was on the Daily Calm 7/25/21. It reminds us that when challenges come our way, they will pass through and go away. Tomorrow is a Brand New Day. Actually your next moment in time is brand new, it’s up to you, to do what is needed to stay calm, centered and peaceful.

This past Friday, I was complaining to my spiritual teacher about some money issues. He actually got pretty pissed off, because of all that has been taught to me and reminded me to Meditate. (And never speak of lack, because our subconscious minds Don’t differentiate your positive or negative thoughts. So its best to think in abundance).

My instructions for the week were to meditate every evening for 3 minutes. I just did 3 days in a row at 2 x 12 minutes cycles per day. The meditation brings calm, peace and is good for overall health and wellness.

Rumi even goes on to tell us that some challenges, may just be stepping stones to bigger and better opportunities to come our way. Today’s challenge, will be tomorrows victory!

When things feel rough and tumble, take a moment and meditate. It may feel difficult at first, but the more you do it, the more peace meditation will provide.

Some Tips: The Daily Calm app provides a new meditation every day. It only takes 10-12 minutes. This app is my favorite. And it has an emergency SOS meditation, that I do when work feels like it’s too frantic and frustrating. I would recommend the Daily Calm App.

Or go on YouTube and choose a guided meditation. There are so many to choose from. Something for every challenge, difficulty or dilemma.

It’s in the silence that our best ideas are produced. There’s no right or wrong way to meditate. I would recommend to “Just Do It” Daily if you can. Don’t even worry about sitting perfectly or anything like that. Just close your eyes, listen and breathe.

I’m actually still a bit wound up from this past week and will stop writing and dial up another meditation. This time, my 2nd all time favorites-Yoga Nidra by Brenda Kwon. No matter how many house mates invade my brain, Yoga Nidra is a great go-to stress reliever. Try and do 20-45 minutes if you can. I guarantee Yoga Nidra will work. I even did it at the dentist one time and didnt even feel the new tooth being inserted into my mouth.

Yoga Nidra, The Daily Calm and even the quick and effective SOS will provide relief for whatever it is your mind thinks is happening. Remember, it is us that chooses our thoughts, not our boss, partner or surroundings. Give Meditation a try. Be Grateful to be alive. It’s a precious gift we are given.

Look for the Good

The NBA in Action on Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Yesterday (1/18/21) NBA TV and TNT broadcasted five non-stop basketball games, to honor Martin Luther King Jr. throughout the day. It was a well deserved celebration of sports, human rights and yesterday & today’s culture.

The Story

The fifth game of day came down to the Los Angeles Lakers vs their arch rival, the Golden State Warriors. During the first half of the game and into the 3rd quarter, the Warriors super sharp shooter, Stephen Curry, could not make a three point basket. Well he did hit a few, but far less than usual.

The announcers kept saying Shooters Shoot, so Steph kept shooting the three’s. In the 4th quarter with just minutes to go, he hit a bomb of a three from way past the 3 point line-SWOOSH!. Then he dribbled down the court and missed an easy lay-up. Lakers got the ball one last time, but because of Steph’s three, they were still in the lead. Game ended with the Warriors winning 115-113 against the World Champion Los Angeles Lakers.

Look for the Good

It’s here after the game that we see how it can be a challenge to keep our minds positive and to look for the good. Steph Curry reluctantly jogged down to the post game interview. Looking bummed out, shaking his head back and forth, for sure upset with himself. The announcer said, I know that look, you missed the lay-up. Steph said Yep. BUT THEN, he said something very similar to this: Yep, I’m bummed I missed that..Oh, lets focus on the POSITIVE and RE-FRAME my answer. I did hit the long three Pointer and we won the game.

Just like you and I, professional Athletes don’t just play the physical game but the mental game. Steph Curry caught himself on National TV about to say something Negative and in the moment told us all, the Positive. Sometimes, things may not come out as planned, are not perfect or really do feel bad. Stop, Breathe, Re-Focus/Re-Frame your thoughts. And Look for the Good in every situation that may occur.

Stop, Breathe, Re-Focus/Re-Frame your thoughts. And Look for the Good in every Situation that may occur-Huna Das

It takes effort and persistent. And no one is perfect. If you Look for the Good most of the time. That’s quite alright. It’s just something to be aware of and to try your best.

It was pretty amazing watching the Look for the Good spiritual Soulution in action, on TV after a hard fought NBA Basketball Game.

As my Mom would say: Look for the Good and See the Miracles.

Have a Positive, Powerful, Peaceful Day!

Secure your Mind

No One or Nothing can Make you feel Bad or Mad – Huna Das

You are in charge of your emotions at all Times. Use your Divine Mind to stay of sound mind at all Times.

If the boss reprimands you with a certain tone or your partner raises their voice towards you. Stay strong, envision a beach, a grassy hill, or fragrant flowers. Do not let the fury of anyone affect your Peace! No one or Nothing can Make you feel Bad or Mad. You control your state of Mind. Outside forces can not mess with your inside feelings without your permission.

Example:

One day my 2 friends were yelling at each other, it escalated to a bit of a tousle, then some crying, leaving one of the 2 very upset. He said that SHE gets me so angry and upset. I said to him: No one can affect your mood except yourself. He didn’t agree and said that his friend caused him to be mad and become upset. I repeated it again, No One can make you mad. Only YOU can make yourself Mad.

The Teaching:

This is one of the most trickiest spiritual themes to master in the World. It takes practice and patience. But once you get it, life can and will be more peaceful for you.

You may feel your body and brain Anger-Up when someone is yelling at you. Imagine putting an imaginary clear or colored shield up in front of you. The screams and yells, can NOT come in. Unless YOU Crack the screen. Don’t let your screen crack, crinkle or disappear. When you feel attacked verbally, Using your imagination, Keep a strong, powerful screen in front of your body. Don’t let anyone’s anger affect you. Don’t crack your screen.

No one or nothing from outside sources can make you Sad, Happy, Glad or Anxious. You control your thoughts and your thoughts create how you feel. Outside forces can not get in unless you let them. You control your reality!

Affirmations

While watching the exact same TV Show, A person can feel Sad just as easily as a person can feel happy. You create your inner TV screen, Think thoughts of Happiness, Joy and Peace. Or if it’s easier for you, carry around a short affirmation card in your pocket. Use your own words to create it, make it your own. Example: No One or Nothing can affect my Mood today, I control my own Mind at all times. Right now, I am Happy, I am Safe, I am Calm and I feel Great!

AFFIRMATION EXAMPLE:

No one or Nothing can affect my Mood today, I control my own Mind at all Times. Right now, I am Happy, I am Safe, I am Calm and I feel Great!

-Huna Das-

Breathe

The next time someone cuts you off in traffic or yells at you for “messing” up at work. Go to your happy place, put up your shield or just B-R-E-A-T-H. When I’m not around people I like to practice square box breathing. Drawing a box/rectangle in my mind using my breathe. It’s a little hard to do when people are in front of you. But you can do it, do it slowly calmly and envision the box with your imagination. Slowly inhaling through your nose 4 counts up. Hold 6 counts across. Exhale 4 more counts down and another 4 counts to the left to complete your box. Repeat. Or even easier, if you find yourself about to get upset, take a moment and slowly inhale 4 counts, hold 6 counts and exhale 8 counts. This would be the SOS method. Try either of these and see how they work. Make sure you exhale slow and long, that’s where the magic happens.

When commotion feels like its coming your way, Relax, stay peaceful , calm and Don’t react. Act with positive thoughts and use your shield. Or use your imagination and go to your favorite place..beach, park, ocean, or even a snow covered mountain. Use your affirmation card and remember to breathe calmly and slowly.

No one or nothing can make you upset except for you. You control your thoughts at all times. Not just when things are good, but when you think they are bad, they really don’t need to be. Always remember no outside force can make you mad. Be Diligent, Be Patient + Practice. It’s not always easy to feel good, calm, or peaceful, BUT it is 100% possible. Only you can make yourself GLAD!

*Yes, I am aware that I repeated myself a few times. That was purposeful. Because this is such a hard theme to believe. It may take you a day, a month or even years to learn and use this consistently. Once mastered, It will change your life.

No one or nothing can affect your mood except for you. Still not sure? Here are a couple quotes to help reinforce this blog post. You can even make an affirmation card out of them if that works for you. Please leave questions or suggestions in the comments section.

I say out to every negative thought that comes to my mind. No person, place or thing has any power over me. For I am the only thinker in my mind. I create my own reality. – Louise Hay

It isn’t the world that makes you unhappy or the way people are in the world. It’s how you process the people and events of the world. – Wayne Dyer
