Choose to see only POSITIVE !!

I am sure each one of us wants to live a happy life, full of happy situations and wonderful people acknowledging and appreciating your wonderfulness, and at the same time you enjoying all aspects - personal, professional, financial, health, etc- of your life to the fullest.
Is it possible to live such wonderful life? Is it possible to have it all? Yes, it is and i'll tell you how.
Make a choice. Choose to see ONLY positive. Yes, this is the key to living a life of your dreams ( I am assuming that you dream of a happy life :) ;) ). 
Everyday perform a small ritual. Follow these steps:
1.     Choose a quite and comfortable place for yourself. You can go for a quite corner of your home or to your balcony, garden or any other place that is comfortable and peaceful.
2.     Sit with you back straight ( this ensures proper flow of energy in your body)
3.     Close your eyes
4.     Observe your natural breath for a minute or two, till to start feeling relaxed and completely present in the moment.
5.     Take 5 deep breaths
6.     With calm  and peaceful mind start thanking God or Universe or Nature or Your Higher Self, depending on whatever feels comfortable to you and aligns with your belief system, for all good and positive aspects of the following:
1)       Personal Life
2)       Professional Life
3)       Abundance
4)       Health
5)       City, locality and home
6)       A particular situation that does not feel so good
7)       People around you - colleagues, family members, friends ...... thank for all good things they have done and still do for you .... feel good about them by remembering all good qualities they posses
8)       Your life partner
9)       Yourself ..... take your own time and remind yourself about all the wonderful qualities you have ... and feel love for yourself while you do this.
Thank for smallest of blessings and feel gratitude within yourself. Feel how important this blessing is in your life. Count all the positive traits of people around you and also include yourself.
7.     Now affirm,
“I choose to see ONLY positive in all situations and aspects of my life”
“I always choose to see good in everyone including myself”
“I see myself and others with love”

This ritual will soon train your brain to see only positive and you will see your life flooded with positive situations and people. After all, like attracts like.

My idea of perfect 2012

Just like 2011, I foresee 2012 to be a very happening year for me.
2011 was the year when I got married, ended my corporate career and decided to do something different, found my passion in life, took a decision to join Martha Beck's life coaching, spent time understanding myself better, spent a lot of time with my loved ones and above all felt lucky about having wonderful life partner and family which truly loves and supports me.
And now, I already have lots of hopes and expectations from 2012. I see myself becoming a well paid life coach, and trust me only I know how much I am already excited about this. There is lot of travel coming my way - Goa, Australia and might be US as well. Doesn't that sound wonderful......getting to see new culture....different food...nature...and lots n lots of shopping. WOW! I am also looking forward to renting a house with a beautiful garden .... Flowers are after all  my first love! Hmmmmmmmmmmmm...........these were all big big things. But, now there are many simple and small things that I plan to do every single day of 2012. These small things that are going to make my each day perfect are...

  • cooking meals at home ( this will ensure that we both - me and my husband, are eating healthy and nutritious food)
  • practicing yoga daily for 1 hour
  • reading out affirmation to myself
  • practicing meditation for an hour daily ( I know many of your might be thinking that 1 hr is too much much, but actually i am used to meditation for this long. Its just that I am not very disciplined and miss out on my meditation because of my laziness)
  • practicing gratitude daily before starting my day & before going to bed
  • spending 15 - 30 mins each day organizing a small part of my house
So..I look forward to a year of health, spiritual growth, gratitude and organised and clutter free space to live in.
I wish all my readers a very happy and prosperous new year.
Please share your idea of perfect 2012 and your plans to achieve it.
