4 Ways to Vital Life, Personal Power & Fulfillment!

Dear cherished reader,

Everything in this Universe is energy. Everyday, we begin with a specific amount energy, and the activities we undertake determine whether we end the day with a deficit or surplus. Needless to say, personal power, manifestation of goals and achieving material success, depends largely on how much energy we have, and how accurately we can direct our energy onto these goals.

No 2 persons have the same birth charts, family backgrounds, and characteristics. But everybody on earth has 24 hours a day. What you do in these 24 hours determine your energy balance sheet. Here are 4 ways to have a surplus at the end of your day:

1. Eat a lot of living foods – in the form of smoothies, juices. Smoothies and Juices are the most convenient way to pack large amounts of living produces into the diet. Your cells are programmed to receive cosmic energy as long as they are treated well. By feeding them first class living foods, they will not only generate energy for healing, but also extraordinary brain performance. 2 Juices and 1 Smoothie a day will do the job!

2. Practice Pranayama, Chi gong, Tai Chi or any breath works for at least 30 minutes a day. Prana is life force; in other words our Breath network. The stronger, clearer your Breath network, the more energy you will have, and the stronger your immunity against negative influences (which can range from bacteria to depressed people!) 

3. Invest your time wisely. Every action you take, including selecting which friends to meet, IS an energy investment. The net profit of loss of each energy investment is the result of your investment. Some people powers you up with good positive vibrations and moods; some people drains you. Choose wisely!

 4. Meditate and pray daily. You are not an accident, neither am I. We are all magnificent creations of Divine Source. So in this human ‘matrix’, take daily time off to reconnect with Divine. You need to ‘go home’ daily. During meditation, various physiological processes take place, including restoring of hormones and adrenals. Your brain thinks better, and your perspectives widen. Think wisdom and fast response. You can save years of mistakes in a matter of months or days. Meditation need not be complicated. Simply sit in a comfortable crossed legged position (or on a chair with feet planted firmly on the floor), close your eyes and focus on the breath. Do that for 20 breaths or more.

Inner Balance is Key for Well-being!

Have you ever seen a father kissing his child tenderly before? Or a mother demonstrating extraordinary strength in protecting her child from danger?

In that instant, you witness an unfolding of a masculine feminine that is close to perfection. So much beauty in a single moment, and time seems to stand still.

In Yoga, we strive towards a balance between our masculine feminine forces. Yin and Yang, strength and flexibility, intellect and intuition. When the divine masculine is united and balanced with the divine feminine, you have a force to manifest things. Power, in both the measurable material sense and spiritual sense, is at your disposal.

What to do with this power? It is then up to you to decide. Whether to use for the greater good, like us (and many others we know) blazing the way for spiritual cultivation in a concrete jungle; or some may choose to use it in a skewed way. Either way there would be an occurrence of karmic assets or liabilities.

Juice your Way to Health!

Dear lovelies,

Did you noticed the number of people falling ill lately has increased? Blame it on the haze, or the ever increasing amount of construction in Singapore.

We observed, with a tint of smugness, that the percentage of our Light Love Laughter Community falling sick is LOWER. Most of us remain in good health, and those who do get sore throat or headiness recover within a day. Hooray!

Here is a quick-remedy juice recipe to protect yourself from the virus outside:

*2 Green Starfuits
*2 Green Apples
*2 inch piece of fresh old ginger
*4 Stalks Celery
*1 Lemon

Add a pinch of sea salt to the juice and drink immediately after juicing! 

The great thing about living foods is that there isn’t really any ‘side effects’ because they are after all, food!

So go ahead and buy the ingredients in bulk, drink up to 3 times a day if possible during this hazy period. (We even add wheatgrass in sometimes!)

2. When you are on the bus and it suddenly brakes, everybody reaches out in panic for the hand rails. But YOU remain steady, looking so cool and composed. You might just catch that cute guy’s or girl’s gaze.

3. When taking the lift, and your arms are full, simply lift your leg and press the lift button with your big toe. So you don’t have to put anything down and risk dirtying your stuff.

5. If you are a single girl, you would have younger guys hitting on you because you grow younger as you age. If you are a guy, you would have young girls paying you attention because girls love mature men who talk spiritual. Its a sexy trait!

Vitality & Wholesome Nutrition without a Fuss!

Everyone of us is given 24 hours a day. But not everyone of us have equal results in life. What differentiates the successful person from others is that he/she is able to more effectively use the time, to do more with less, to achieve more within less time.

While we can’t extend time, we can definitely increase our memory power, brain efficiency and processing speed. The University of South Florida recently did a 2 month test to find that a diet rich in antioxidants successfully increased cognitive memory, learning and thinking speed in a group of 65-85 years old subjects. 

What good news to know that boosting brain power can be just as simple as using the blender! 

Here’s a recipe using the Ultimate Health Pack to give you honest, good old nutrition without fuss

1Tbs Vitamineral Green Powder
1 Tbs Inca Berries
1 Tbs Yacon Syrup
1 Tbs Cacao Powder
1 Squirt Plankton (about 6 drops max)
1 Tsp Maca Powder
1 Tsp Lucuma Powder
1/2 Cup Chia Gel (Concentrated)
1/2 Cup Water
1 Cup frozen bananas (you can substitute with mango pieces/dragon fruit pieces/papaya/blueberries, best to rotate daily!)
Blend and drink!

5 Steps to having BOTH spiritual and material power

Gone are the days where we think we could only walk the spiritual path in seclusion; living inside caves or mountains. Thank goodness for great spiritual teachings, from the likes of Swami Muktananda, who taught us that life greatest learnings and fulfilment  come from balancing spiritualism and materialism; and not one at the expense of the other.

Anybody on the path will know that the value of your cultivation increases when you do it in the real material world. For example, setting up a business and using scripture teachings to run your business – this is many times tougher than living ascetically in the mountains.

To strike a balance between mind and heart in business is like walking on a tight rope. You have to be very aware, very alert and observant of your own thoughts, intentions, as well as  a bridge between divine guidance and urban dwelling.

1. Reflect at the end of everyday If you are not already doing so, try this on. Spend the last 10 minutes of your day, before you go to sleep, contemplating your day. Mentally go through the events, encounters, interactions, people that you met with. Observe with detail whether you are closer to your goals today than yesterday. Ponder on the things that caused emotions to arise, especially those that left you feeling lousy.

And ask yourself, “What actually happened, what are the facts, what did I do, or not do, to have created this; what is the impact, what did I learn, how can I be better tomorrow?” If there are emotions arising during this time, let it arise, feel it, then let it go. Emotions don’t last more than 10 minutes if we allow it to play out; but if we don’t, they can result in years of suppression, and affect our behaviour in undesirable ways that we blind to.

2. Move vigorously everyday! Find a way to perspire everyday – jogging, dancing, gardening, yoga whatever activity that you enjoy. Our favourite is dynamic Yoga with lots of salutations, movements and endurance. We literally turn into a tap (pouring sweat) during workouts, and afterwards you feel over the moon. Its so important to perspire regularly, not only the toxins are removed, but emotions that were lodged in our joints are released out. And it also regulates the fluid function (a second chakra activity) of our body,  restoring natural hormonal imbalances. Just make sure you drink enough clean filtered water to replenish fluid loss.

3. Live with your heart on your sleeves Not literally, but metaphorically. You know, this existence, this life that you and I have, this world that we have known for as long as we are alive, is but a pretty bubble. An illusion that Sutras call “Maya”. It is a stage of drama with you as the super star. Everything that matters is that relationship and dialogue you maintain with Divine, everything and everybody else is there for you to make use of. All for an ultimate objective – uniting with Divine. So, what is there to scheme, to lie, to fake? If you see anything not right, out of integrity, people bullying others, etc, and you know that your opinion makes an impact, then speak up. Do it with as much love and compassion as you can afford. Quit the falsities, but of course make sure you uphold integrity within yourself first. When you live this way, your thoughts, words and actions, how you are with yourself, how you are with others, will all snap into alignment. This is power in itself.

4. God wants you well This world exists for you to break free, and the resources of this world is given by Divine for your cultivation. It is not Divine’s plan for us to suffer, be in debt or broke, or be miserable prolongedly. Of course things happen, many of them could be unpleasant. The focal point is not for us to conclude that we are victims; but to know that whenever we are in great pain God is sending us a huge message. Buddha said “All life is suffering”; but he does not mean us to take his words in a literal sense.

All life is suffering, read it with the heart, feel it, feel its weight. And then enquire deeper, keep asking “Who am I?”, “Why am I here, in this life?”. And share the insights, share the process with others in your life. Stay with the enquiry process, no matter how young or old you are, because that is the most important essence of any spiritual path, the journey of enquiry. Which is I believe, one of the ways that Buddha meant for us to benefit from his Dharma.

5. Make use of Sound Invocation Mantras are ancient sound vibrations that are encoded with a consciousness beyond our intellectual understanding. When various syllabus are pronounced, specific parts of our brains are activated. Think of how many percent of the brain the average man uses – less than 10%. Even Albert Einstein, a Scientist considered to be of genius level, uses less than half his brain. Imagine who you can be when you can activate more parts of your brain to work for you? Think willpower, skills, talents, intelligence, speed of thinking – all of which can lead to greater material fulfilment.

Here is an ancient Mantra – called the Gayatri Mantra. When sang 3 times morning and night, it leads to higher Knowledge, Understanding and Truth :   Ohm Bhur Bhuvah Swaha Tatsa Vitu Vahrae Niyam Bhargo Devahsya Dyimayee Dhiyoyo Nah Pratcho Dhaya
