DAY 315: Parenting in the New Age – Dr. Saloni Singh

shutterstock_172913915Chapter 9 in the book Holistic Wellness In The NewAge entitled “Parenting in the New Age” is written by Dr. Saloni Singh.

Saloni Singh MD became a Life and Parenting Coach to help parents and couples enhance their relationship with each other and their children and bring joy and harmony in their families. www.salonisingh.com

“Our kids require us most to love and accept them for who they are, not to spend our whole time trying to make them into who we think they should be. Also they need our love the most when we feel they deserve it the least. […]

To teach anything to your children, first you need to earn their unshakable trust and faith in everything you do and say. Let your children feel and learn from your attitude that they are important to you, more significant than anything else. Let them know your trust in them is unshakable. And if you think they already know, you are mistaken dear friend.

Many surveys show that children feel unloved or loved conditionally, untrusted and insignificant in the modern age because they feel work, money, status, society, even the laptop and phone calls are more important to their parents than them. […]

Bring the qualities in yourself that you want to see in your child. Be the person you want your child to be and feel the magic.”

Powerful! Parenting for the New Age.

DAY 314: Spiritual Healing Through Storytelling – Dr. Amit Nagpal

shutterstock_21205978Chapter 8 in the the book Holistic Wellness In The NewAge entitled “Spiritual Healing Through Storytelling” is written by Dr. Amit Nagpal.

Dr. Amit Nagpal is a social media influencer, author, speaker, trainer and coach. His special interest and expertise lie in inspirational storytelling, anecdotes and visual storytelling. www.dramitnagpal.com

Dr. Nagpal teaches his clients to learn how to tell their story so that they can heal their emotional wounds and live free from pain, shame, guilt or anger.

Here’s an excerpt from this chapter:

“How can we use storytelling to heal ourselves of the past and unburden our soul? In my opinion, the process requires the following five steps:

  • Get conscious of your story – The Consciousness
  • Decide to what extent you would want to share – The Content
  • Turn wounds into gifts – The Cure
  • Look at tragedy as if it were comedy – The Comedy
  • Become a witness to your story – The Context

[…]

The Universe designed us for storytelling and story listening. Our hearts connect to stories, our brains are wired for stories and our ears want to listen to stories. We want our stories to be heard because our experiences are stories, our complaints are stories and sometimes the biggest burdens on our soul are our untold stories.”

Telling your story from a place of compassion and love for yourself, without feeling like a victim and having a compassionate listener who knows how to listen fully will bring about lightness of heart and deep healing.

DAY 313: The Power of Forgiveness – Water E. Jacobson MD

forgivenessChapter 7 in the the book Holistic Wellness In The NewAge teaches about the power of forgiveness.

Walter E. Jacobson MD, psychiatrist, therapist, spiritual advisor, mastery of life mentor, author and speaker, motivates audiences to break free from self-limiting concepts and negative behaviors getting in the way of their happiness and success. He emphasizes on the power of spiritual techniques and cognitive tools to generate happiness, well-being and material success. He is the author of bestselling book “Forgive to Win”.  www.walterjacobsonmd.com

“Forgiving others is an act of compassion. We know this. Nonetheless, often times we don’t do it. We want those who hurt us to suffer for what they did. By withholding forgiveness we think we are punishing them. We think we are keeping them stuck in a prison of guilt and shame. But the fact is we’re just punishing ourselves.

We’re prolonging our own suffering. We’re withholding from ourselves our own piece of mind. We’re essentially keeping ourselves locked in an emotional prison cell that is of our own making. We victimize ourselves long after having been victimized by our offenders.”

Isn’t that powerful?

Is there someone in your life you have not yet forgiven?

Do it. Forgive them. Free yourself from the burden of un-forgiveness.

Love,

Rucsandra

DAY 312: Ho’oponopono – The Magical Prayer Healing – Rashminder Kaur

shutterstock_146595713Chapter 6 in the the book Holistic Wellness In The NewAge brings us back to something that I love and believe in wholeheartedly: Ho’oponopono.

I wrote about it in the early days of this gratitude project and since then people have asked me about it many times.

The author of this chapter, Rashminder Kaur is a Reiki and EFT teacher and a student of Non Dual Awareness. Living in Ahmedabad, India, she offers healing and counselling services and leads workshops to raise awareness in both the social and spiritual domains. Her volunteer contributions are with nonprofit organizations supporting organic and sustainable living.

Here’s what she says about Ho’oponopono:

“If there is something that transcends all boundaries of culture and creed and unites humanity, is the practice of prayer. Prayer is much more than a religious ritual and its essence; when understood it becomes the very purpose of life itself.

As Rumi says: ‘After all, the purpose of prayer is not to stand and bow all day.The purpose is to poses continuously that fragrant state which appears to you in prayer.’ […]

Ho’oponopono is a prayer healing which has been practiced by the people of Hawaii. […] The meaning of Ho’oponopono in Hawaiian is “mental cleansing”.

The essence of Ho’oponopono is the manifestation of three key aspects of Universal Love. These are:

  • Acceptance
  • Forgiveness
  • Gratitude

Universal love, which forms the very fabric of creation, from which all matter and spirit evolve is embodied by these three attributes of Acceptance, Forgiveness and Gratitude. When we focus on these attributes and integrate them with our full acceptance of responsibility for whatever problem is occurring, we easily manifest the universal love which cleanses faulty patterns from our consciousness and fills us with awareness.

Thus Ho’oponopono is not energy based, but a consciousness based practice; that is why it is devoid of any visual or energetic experience, but brings healing through awareness.”

I love you.

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you.

DAY 311: The Willingness Process – Jane Kirby

willingnessChapter 5 in the the book Holistic Wellness In The NewAge is entitled “The Willingness Process” and it is written by Jane Kirby.

Jane Kirby is a qualified therapist, international trauma counselor and the creator of The Willingness Process modality. She works full time as a counselor, public speaker, master workshop facilitator, author and master trainer of the NewAge Foundation. She lives in Zambia with her husband Chad. www.janekirby.info

“I would love to share with you a personal story about a meeting I had with the Dalai Lama. […] So my question was:

“How does one best help somebody if they are battling with low self-esteem and beating themselves up? What’s the best thing that one can do to be of assistance?” […]

I was lucky enough that  my question got passed forward and the following is the Dalai Lama’s response:

“The first thing that you need to know is that even if Buddha himself came down to assist you with someone, if that person themselves is unwilling to heal, then there is really nothing that can be done to help them.”

She also says that within the truth of His Holiness’ words there was a beautiful dichotomy, which is that the opposite is also completely true:

“When anyone is really willing … then healing can happen and fights can end so rapidly that it can almost spin one’s head.”

Love,

Rucsandra

DAY 310: Empower Your Dreams – Suresh Padmanabhan

moneyChapter 4 in the the book Holistic Wellness In The NewAge written by Suresh Padmanabhan is entitled “Empower Your Dreams: Practical Steps For Creating Miracles in Your Life”.

Suresh Padmanabhan is the creator of “The Money Workshop” and the “Eastern Law of Attraction”. He is a professional speaker, author, life coach and mentor. He is the author of “I Love Money”, “On Cloud 9” and “Ancient Secrets of Money”.

Life becomes easy. Things are created twice, first in the Mind and then in Reality. In this game you have to win in the mind before you win in reality. The whole of the Indian system worked on Mind Mastery: creating powerful states within the mind.”

Creating powerful states of peace, joy, abundance, love and freedom within the mind is the key to creating the same in your day to day life.

DAY 309: It’s a YES Universe! – Lackhinder Babbu Gill

shutterstock_125398931Chapter 3 in the the book Holistic Wellness In The NewAge written by Lackhinder Babbu Gill is entitled “It’s a YES Universe!”.

Lackhinder Babbu Gill is a Vipassana practitioner since 1988. Mindfulness is an integral part of her life. With a perfect blend of the East and the West she uses Louise Hay’s philosophy to express into words the insights she receives in the silent practice of meditation. She is a certified and licensed “ Heal Your Life” seminar leader and life coach. www.hylindia.com

Telling the story of how she healed her ailing body, Babbu Gill teaches us that healing can only come from within.

“As the course progressed for the next 10 days, there wasn’t a moment that wasn’t new to me. My asthma came up during the first session, flashes of childhood experiences flashed through my head. All the suppressed tears, smothered love and pent up emotions arose. The rejection of being an unwanted girl child was painful, the anger and resentment all welled up. The feeling of being unloved wouldn’t let me breathe until the floodgates broke open and all the buried emotions were released and finally set free. I could see and experience how every thought created a feeling and an emotion and I could experience every sensation at the physical level! Every moment was a moment of arising and passing. Yes, it is here that I experienced and understood the Mind, Body and Spirit connection for the first time in complete awareness.”

As she continued to release her painful emotions, Babbu Gill healed her asthma completely.

Healing can indeed come only from within.

Love,

Rucsandra
