Unclutter your life & watch the magic unfold

In today’s world, we are literally bombarded with information from different sources. One study says we have more information since the last two decades than was there from all of beginning of civilisation.

With so much information coming in constantly, the mind is incapable of processing it all and it makes it difficult to make the right choices, to know what is really true and what isn’t, what is helpful and what is just a time waster.

Alycone in “At the feet of the Master” says, “In all the world there are only two kind of people, those who know and those who do not know and this knowledge is all that matters”

One must practice discernment, and make informed choices, learning to choose carefully that which is useful and ignore all that is not useful.

Excessive material possessions and information lead to clutter, physically, digitally, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

One of the speakers I heard recently said , “clutter is nothing but postponed decisions and actions”. It made me think. It is indeed true…When we fall into the habit of procrastination and laziness, tasks accumulate and create clutter and then begins a vicious circle of this clutter itself keeping us from doing what needs to be done. Sometimes this mental clutter prevents us from sleeping well and that leads to other health issues.

In this article, I share a few tips to declutter your space: physically, digitally, emotionally, mentally and spiritually

Physically: Clear the things you haven’t used for the last two years. Unlikely you will use them now.

Get rid of the “shelf-esteem”, a term I heard Jack Canfield use in one of his lectures. Read the books, else give them to a library. Someone else can read them and benefit. You still get the good karma. 🤓

Stop collecting things that won’t be used. Unused things are equivalent to stuck energy.
Follow the one- in-two-out rule. If you get one new thing, at least two or more old things have to go out from your shelves.

Digitally: delete emails and messages that are not useful anymore.
Unsubscribe from mailing lists, WhatsApp groups.
Block where necessary.
Avoid the urge to respond to every message.

Emotionally: listen to the inner voice, evaluate it and then decide whether or not you need to pay attention to it. Think, what would be the advice you would give in the same very scenario to your best friend? Apply it to yourself.

Mentally: get rid of thinking negative for yourself, for others and for the world around you. For problems, identify them, then shift the focus to the solution. Always try and be a part of the solution.

Check your zone of influence… It may not be big, but it’s the best you can do. It will eventually expand and even if it doesn’t, at least you have the satisfaction of knowing you did all you could.

Spiritually: watch out for pride. It’s one of the worst obstacles to growth on the spiritual path. It breeds from low self esteem and ignorance and prevents our minds from seeing clearly. Work on removing pride ruthlessly, regularly.

Forgive and let go. Forgive yourself as well as others.

When you find a system that works for you stick with it. Frequent shifting costs you energy and time. Move on only when you truly feel there’s no more to do or learn, or that you are not growing anymore.

Some other useful tips:
Try the Brain dump technique. Write it down. Every single thought, task that you need to do or wish to do. Every blockage you have. Every thing that makes you happy, makes you sad or angry. Things you have been wanting to do but haven’t done.

Then categorise these into: do it now, delegate it, defer it, drop it.

Use the Vitamin N. Learn to say NO. Set healthy boundaries. And don’t feel guilty about it.

Clump similar taks together. Give an hour a day for all tasks that need only 2 minutes. Finish them up.

Move from FOMO (fear of missing out) to JOMO (joy of missing out) Less is truly more in today’s world!


For unimportant tasks, “satifice”. Keep the perfectionist attitude for what is truly important.

Get rid of distractions.
Avoid or minimise multi tasking.

Develop skills to skim information. Set up filters.
Delegate where possible.

Most importantly…TAKE ACTION..DO. Sometimes we get overwhelmed and don’t even start. The first step is often the most important one.

“Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible and soon you will be doing the impossible” -St. Francis of Assisi.

Give things only that much time as they are worth. Check the input vs output.

Keep the end goal in mind.
Ask useful questions. All the time. For (almost) everything. Know your why. Why am I studying this? Why am I buying this? Is there a need? Is it useful to me? To others around me?

Apply the THINK filter to your thoughts, words and actions. (is it True, Helpful, Inspiring, Necessary, Kind?)

When faced with doubts, invoke and think how would the Guru respond to this situation? How would he think, what would he say, what would he do.

Practice the Teachings.
Master Choa has given so many techniques- the Arhatic Yoga path is complete in itself and just by practicing the Teachings, all the above gets taken care of.

Shift from knowing to doing.
Meditate regularly- it helps remove unnecessary thoughts and clean the energy bodies.
Chant-especially the Gayatri mantra- to invoke for intuitive intelligence and illumination.
Practice Superbrain Yoga to make the brain sharper.

Lastly, be patient. The results will come.

As Master Choa says, “If you have done everything that needs to be done, the future will take care of itself”.

Declutter your life and watch the magic unfold!
Blessings be with all.
Love and light.

Nina 🙂


Our health or responsibility

A healthy world is a happy world!

We cannot depend on others for our own health…it is becoming more and more important to take the responsibility of our own well-being. It all begins with one simple step at a time.

Meditation, self-healing, de-stressing techniques taught in Pranic Healing are easy to learn and practice.

Excuses to changes

“Every journey begins with a single step”Lao Tzu

Often we know we need to make a few changes and do things that are good for us, but we resist stepping out of our comfort zones even when we are miserable where we are. Many of us tend to procrastinate. Why does that happen? How can we overcome our inertia? In this short video, we share simple tips to make the shift from making excuses to making changes that can help us achieve our goals.


Motivate to Meditate

“Meditation brings wisdom; lack of meditation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.” Buddha

We have all at some point in time, attended workshops and courses with great enthusiasm, and have even had the good intention to practice the Teachings, but between wanting to do something and actually getting down to doing it, there’s a gap.

Regular meditation is something most practitioners on the spiritual path aim for.

So, I began reflecting on what can truly work, and I tried to look at the difference between people who meditate daily and those who don’t. Barring some exceptions, most people who claimed to be able to meditate regularly seemed to have somehow made it a part of their regular routine – just like other things they do daily. Sleep, eat, work, go to the washroom, brush, bathe etc. Meditation to them is a part of who they are now and they didn’t need to think much about it. On the other hand people who did not meditate regularly (and I was amongst those once upon a time) were people who were still figuring out how to go about it, doubting that they would be able to get there, starting but stopping often, and getting frustrated at their failure to achieve their goal.

Today, I do manage to practice fairly regularly, and that has been a slow and steady process of trying and failing and trying again. When I first attended my workshops, I too went through phases of erratic practices. I too would end up feeling frustrated. I searched the net for blogs and articles to motivate me, attended further workshops and courses in the hope that I will find the motivation to become regular with my practices. Different sites gave similar advice and seemingly all of it made sense, yet, none of it seemed to work for me. In this write-up, I will share what finally led me to my regular practice. It may or may not work for everyone, but I am writing in the hope that it may be helpful for many others.

Identify Why You Avoid Meditating

Own your excuse and then take steps to get rid of it. The key to any successful change in behaviour, or to starting a new routine is awareness. Reflect and be honest with yourself. Next, proceed to take steps to resolve the issue.

For example, if the main obstacle for you is “time” (rather the lack of it), because you wake up late – reflect and see why that happens. Perhaps, you are going to bed pretty late? Again, go deeper to see why that happens, perhaps it is so, because you are watching TV or spending time on social media, and so on and so forth until you arrive at the root cause. Then proceed to imagine that you have removed the cause, and visualise yourself doing what is the right behaviour (in this case: sleeping on time).  This technique is similar to the “Inner reflection and Firm resolution” given by Master Choa and works on the premise that without awareness, transformation is not possible. Secondly, repeated right thoughts result in repeated right behaviour. It also agrees with the principles of neuroscience that speak of retraining the brain through visualisation and repeated thoughts.

Make It Yours

Meditate because YOU want to, make it your goal. If you are trying to meditate because someone else told you to, it probably won’t work. You need to make it your personal goal, because you specifically want to do it. Be accountable- announce it to others, motivate someone else to meditate as well. This will help in overcoming excuses to not practice.

Make A Start

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” Lao Tzu Often times we wait for the perfect moment to start – well, there is never ever a better moment than NOW! So, start with a small step. Don’t wait … Just do it!

Schedule It

“The reason why students do not progress even after receiving priceless teachings and spiritual techniques from the teacher is because they do not have a schedule; the sattvic energy is missing. Sattvic people establish the rhythm, they preserve the movement, and they preserve the organization.” ― Master Choa Kok Sui, Hinduism Revealed

Take out your calendar and schedule an appointment with yourself, just like you would schedule an appointment with someone else…someone who’s important, like a doctor or a business colleague. Remember, no one can be as important as you for yourself. Mark an appointment and then stick to it. Use technology to help. Set a reminder on the phone, set an alarm, put in your to-do list and tick it off once done!

Enjoy It, Make It Fun

If it’s boring, you will not be able to sustain it. So get creative. Find or create a “go-to” space for your meditation practice. If you can’t then, start a pleasant activity that you can relate to it, like for example lighting a candle, or an incense stick that sets the mood. Maybe, put on a chant while you exercise. Use a comfortable sitting position. Do different meditations, sometimes, try doing it without a cd…keep it fresh.

Eliminate Distractions

Unplug. Change the “FOMO” (Fear Of Missing Out) to “JOMO” (Joy Of Missing Out). Break the unhelpful pattern and invert the process! We absolutely owe it ourselves to disconnect from all media and everybody else for a short while each day and just be with ourselves.

Focus On The Benefits For Yourself

Nothing like an incentive for us to do anything. The human brain thrives on what it feels is gainful for it. So, go ahead and enumerate the benefits for yourself. Make them inspiring to read through. That will add further momentum to your intention to practice.

Stop Comparing

“The only person you should try to be better than is who you were yesterday.” – Unknown No one is better or worse, we are all on a path and an individual journey, at our pace. Find inspiration from others but never compare or put yourself down. This can be extremely detrimental and lead to low-self esteem, which in itself becomes a huge obstacle to do anything useful. Watch out and consciously stop comparing yourself to others. Remember, you are awesome!!

Find A Buddy Or A Group

This is one of the most useful tips according to me- nothing like a buddy system or a group to keep you motivated, especially on days when you will tend to slow down. The energies of a group will pull you through. It also helps with keeping you accountable when we work in a group. So find yourself a group or else, make one.

Reward Yourself

“Your brain is a reward detector. As you go about your life, your sensory nervous system is continuously monitoring which actions satisfy your desires and deliver pleasure. Feelings of pleasure and disappointment are part of the feedback mechanism that helps your brain distinguish useful actions from useless ones. Rewards close the feedback loop and complete the habit cycle”- James Clear

Write your goals in a meditation journal and celebrate each goal you achieve on your meditation calendar. For example, sleep an extra hour every six days you meditate, go and get a spa treatment once you achieve a monthly target, or gift yourself something special from your shopping list. Anything that helps keep you motivated.

These are some tips I followed to help me get regular with my meditation practice, and eventually it became it’s own reward. This is not an exhaustive list- you can use it as is or make one that works for you adding or removing from this. In any case, know that you can do it and remember, it’s never too late to begin…so, don’t wait- MEDITATE!
