Want To Be Unfuckable? Meditate And That Gift Is Yours.

  • Reading time:12 mins read

Okay, so swear words in the name of the blog post – perhaps that is not a good start, and perhaps it is. You gotta take the plunge into the deep end, right? Anyways, why would anyone want to be unfuckable? And what the hell does that even mean?

First of all, it’s not a real word, so there. If you are going to message me with an excerpt from the Webster’s Dictionary 21st century edition showing me an empty space, where unfuckable is supposed to be, don’t.

Second of all, Unfuckable is an attitude and an agenda. It isn’t something you can show to the world. Just like you can’t pierce your chest, tear your heart into two, and show the world where the love of your life resides. The same way you cannot show the world that you are a beast. Or that you are in beast mode.

All the world sees are the residual patterns. It sees that you are resilient, and bouncy. You are Anti-Fragile, as Nassim Taleb would say. You not only bounce back from things. But you look forward to the bad shit as much as the good shit. (more…)

How To Stop Boredom Eating? Try This Hunger Meditation.

Hunger meditation

I don’t know about you, but I spend a lot of my daily hours foraging for food. It’s either thinking about food, thinking about my next or previous meals, wondering when I will get to eat next, and where I will eat next (have you ever tried a hunger meditation?).

It’s all related to hunger and food. A lot of times, I have realized I am not actually really hungry when I eat, but, I am eating, because I am bored, or lonely, or upset.

I’m sure you have done this before as well. Not listened to your bodies’ cues for hunger, but eaten just for the sake of eating. The opposite is true as well.

A lot of times, I am starving, or at least my body is, but my mind is too busy working or distracted, and unable to figure out that it is time to eat. That’s when I need to be more connected to my hunger cues, rather than less.

Are You Feeling Like An Imposter In Your New Endeavour?

  • Reading time:3 mins read

When I first start anything, it might be an online business or a new meditation practice, I always feel like I am the worst in that specific field. I am the only one in the whole world who has no idea what she's doing (have you ever tried an imposter syndrome meditation?). According to Wikipedia, Impostor syndrome (also known as impostor phenomenon or fraud syndrome or the imposter experience) is a concept describing high-achieving individuals who are marked by an inability to internalize their accomplishments and a persistent fear of being exposed as a "fraud." As you can see, Imposter Syndrome affects high achievers. And it affects them when they are doing a lot of things outside of their comfort zone. Imposter syndrome crops up often in the entrepreneurs that I meet on a daily basis. This is because they are always working outside of their comfort zone, and that makes them feel like they are constantly having to perform at a…

What Does Your Creative Muse Look Like?

  • Reading time:3 mins read

Recently, I have started communing and chatting more vehemently and outwardly with my Muse. She’s been in my life for decades now. But only recently have I really started talking about this not-so-imaginary friend and guide that has been helping me with my creative projects for the past 20 years. I couldn’t do without her, and I would definitely have a hard time writing the thousands of words I write every day without her by my side.

I have been reading a lot of books by best-selling authors on Creativity who have been espousing the value of their own Muse. Stephen King’s On Writing, and Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic are just two that come to mind.

Every single creative person on the planet has a Muse whether they are aware of them or not. These guides are forever helping us on our creative path. Guiding us off the cliffs that we sometimes get on, wanting to commit creative suicide, and helping us back onto the path of creating, creating, and more creating. (more…)

I Experience Ecstasy In Day To Day Life Now

  • Reading time:6 mins read

I live an unusual sort of life, but I don’t really notice the difference until I mingle with the Muggles. The magic that I experience on a daily basis because of the flow state that I have cultivated in my life. Everything I do brings me into the flow state. It is about living life so fully and so experientially that everything is absolutely perfect. I guess what I am trying to do here is put into words something that can only be experienced.

I could try and talk to you about it, and I have tried. But you are just going to look at me like I am insane. It is how I used to look at individuals who spoke to me of flow, magic, and creativity in the past. They used to tell me about their own life and how intermingled with faith, the divine, and the ecstatic it is. I would listen and in my head, I would think as you probably are, ‘What a lot of crock!’

I don’t try to explain anymore. There is no point in explaining a state of consciousness that has no parallel. No parallel at all.

There is nothing that can touch it. There are no fake substitutes here. Either you are in it, and you know it, and can’t explain it. Or you aren’t, and you want it or you don’t know that it exists and you are oblivious to everything.

Either way it works out really well for everyone in question. (more…)

Is Pain Killing You? Meditate To Diffuse The Hell Out Of It

  • Reading time:4 mins read

Recently, I got this pain in my right shoulder blade. It was debilitating. I couldn’t even get out of bed without my back spasming. This was a recurrent pain, so as usual, I tried to ignore it, and get on with business. I hoped it would go away on its own. Of course, it did not. It was trying to send me a message and until I got that message, it wouldn’t leave.

I decided to spend a few meditation sessions in the morning (I meditate for 30 minutes every morning as soon as I wake up) on talking to the pain and asking it why it keeps on coming up again and again. Sounds odd, right? I know, I thought it sounded weird as well. But I was getting sick and tired of being so healthy in other ways, but having this debilitating pain every few months.

Why does it come up again and again?

What is it trying to bring into my life? (more…)

I Have Built Indestructible Trust In Myself

  • Reading time:7 mins read

Over the past two years, I have done a lot of things that I was too afraid to do before. I built my courage one brick at a time, by doing what I was not comfortable doing. Every single time, I was able to beat my wavering self and do what needed to be done, despite the odds, I built a little bit of trust in myself. Until this point in time, right now, when I am at that point where I have indestructible trust in who I am, what I am doing, and where I am going.

It doesn’t mean that I don’t have moments of doubt or I don’t falter at all. I’m still human, after all. But overall, if I take the average of all of my motions and my movements, I realize that I believe in myself.

This belief was something that I was searching for, for a long, long time. 30 years to be precise.

I’m Better Than Ever In My 30s

I find that as time goes on, I am getting better and better. I don’t want to compare myself to an aged cheese or a bottle of great wine, because they aren’t conscious of their changes. But I was absolutely conscious throughout every single change that I went through.  (more…)

Meditation Kills All Of The Mind-Killers

  • Reading time:11 mins read

I started meditating a long time back, because I wanted to calm down my crazy mind. I had a lot of anxiety and I knew meditation would help me with that. Why did I choose meditation out of all of the other different things I could try? I mean, I could have started smoking weed, or taking Prozac, or exercising like a fiend, or eating a lot of sugars and carbs, or a hundred other things.

I guess, I was lucky. Or in the right place at the right time. I did a Yoga teacher Training in Toronto, because I inadvertently discovered Hot Yoga, and fell in love with it. Our main teacher for the teacher training was a meditation fanatic. She taught us a lot about it. We meditated a lot. In circles. Solitary. Facing each other. Facing outwards. It was an interesting experience.

Still it doesn’t explain why I started meditating regularly.

Well, this might sound hippy-dippy, but I realized the power of meditation, when I was sitting one day in the meditation pose, in a room with ten others, and I felt this ball of furious, white energy in my hands. It was powerful and white-hot. I felt like I could manipulate it and move it around. It was my first experience with manipulating and working with energy this way. It was quite fascinating.

I thought to myself, if I could have such an experience with just a few sessions of meditation, imagine what would happen if I did many many more sessions. I was hooked.

Imperfect Meditations

Of course, that experience wasn’t replicable every single time. Sometimes I meditated and it was quite powerful. Sometimes, I had a hard time keeping my monkey mind from bouncing around all over the place. Yet other times, I spent the whole meditation session thinking about food, all the food that I was going to eat after the session, or sex, all of the sexual fantasies that I was going to reenact after the session. It was definitely a challenge.

But I realized no matter how the individual experiences of meditation were, the overall effect of them on me was palpable. I could feel the changes happening inside of me. I was becoming someone different. I didn’t even look the same anymore. (more…)

Listen Up! Silence Is That Secret Sauce You Are Searching For.

  • Reading time:13 mins read

In the past year, I have started off my mornings with something really special. SILENCE.

I wake up, perform my morning ablutions, and sit down on my bed or chair to stare off into space. I wouldn’t call it a meditation, but more like active day-dreaming. I sit and stare off into the white space, or close my eyes, and let my mind wander anywhere and everywhere.

It has actually become my favourite time of day. I let my mind journey to all of the different realms of time and space. In my daydreams, I can do anything and I can be anywhere. There is one difference between other people’s daydreaming and mine. I call my daydreaming active because I am quite conscious through the entire process. I pay attention to where my mind likes to wander.

When we are dreaming at night, and our subconscious is at play, there are no limitations to us and our capabilities. We are all-powerful. When I daydream during the day, and I let my mind frolic, I feel like I am listening to what my subconscious wants from life. I am listening to what I truly want from my life. In this way, I am not letting society, or my parents’ dreams for me dictate my own dreams.

Conscious DayDreaming

Have you ever daydreamed consciously? I bet not. If you did end up daydreaming, you probably thought it was a waste of time, like I used to. (more…)
