Akhshey had a sleepless night.

He was happy but his mind was restless as he thought of the evening he had just spent with Dipa and Sanjana. Countless thoughts seemed to be crossing at the same time.

Such an emotional turmoil had not occurred to him during the last five years ever since the sad demise of his wife Pooja, after a short mysterious illness.

He had been as devoted to her as she was to him. After being so much in love with Pooja, the thought of another woman in his life had never crossed his mind. He had even ensured that Pooja’s wardrobe in their bedroom was untouched, as he was content to live with her memories.

That was as long as Pallavi, his daughter, was studying in school. Pallavi resembled her mother not only in looks but also in other habits. After finishing her school, she had joined the college hostel during the last two years and it was only then that he felt a sudden vacuum in his life.

It also made him realize that Pallavi would never come home in the same manner because after studies she would probably take up a job somewhere else, then marry, and lead her own life.

Until now, not giving second marriage a consideration was a choice that he had made himself though in his heart he knew Pooja would never mind it because that is how she would want him to be. He was not getting any younger either and started feeling the need a companion to break the loneliness that was setting in.

Then, his mind went back to the day he accidentally dialed a wrong number which had led to chance introduction with Dipa, who he felt, had a similar manner of talking and the general attitude to life as Pooja. Having conversed with her almost every day for the last six months he had started believing this even more as he realized that he and Dipa were turning out to be more than just good friends.

She had been the only woman who he had felt close to in the recent years. He had always wanted to meet this mysterious woman and find out for real if there was chance for anything more than friendship in his feelings so he had volunteered to go for the presentation to Calcutta.

He knew Dipa was staying separated from her husband who was still maintaining her and their daughter but did not know anything more. She had never revealed to him and nor had he asked.

The strange attraction that he felt for her on the telephone had become stronger after meeting her. However, where was it leading, he still could not say.

There were too many unanswered questions. One thing that had bothered him right from the beginning was the gap of 12 years between their ages though apparently she was at ease with it. However, the most important question in his mind that night was what her take on it was. It was clear that she liked him, but was there anything more, he wondered.

By the time his mind jostled with all the questions, it was dawn. Suddenly, he missed her and wanted to hear her voice. He wanted to be near her. Nothing else in this world mattered more than that.

He picked up the telephone and started to dial her number. Then midway he chanced to look at the watch.

6 a.m.

God!

What has come over him? This is no time to call anyone. What will she think? Maybe she was sleeping.

Momentarily, he hesitated.

He HAD to be with her as soon as possible. Making up his mind, started dialing again.

She was awake.

He had never called her this early in the morning and the sound of her voice was a bit different, somewhat more exciting, he thought. The soft tone with the husky timbre of her voice turned him on.

“Hi, it’s me, sorry did I wake you up?” he asked.

“Not at all.” she smiled as she answered “I have been up of some time now. You don’t have to be so formal with me.”

“Your voice is sounding so…sexy”.

She started laughing. “I have just got up and am half asleep, and you find it sexy”.

“Really, I’m not kidding. It is really nice and husky and…sexy. Okay, what I want to say is that I cannot bear to be away from you any more. So could you please come as soon as possible?”

“Ha-ha, what is this now? You don’t have your meeting?”

“It is there. But everything else can wait. I want to be with you.”

“I’m flattered.” she laughed. “You forget I have a daughter who I have to get ready for school.”

Then added, “but frankly, I am missing you too”.

“Tell you what; I will excuse myself from the meeting at around 11. Can you make it by then?”

“Yes, I think that could be possible. I will try to do that but it depends on Sanjana’s school programme.”

“Okay,  do come as soon as possible, I guess I love you even more after meeting you, Dipa.” then in his own jovial style added, ” More than I realized till last night”.

They both laughed heartily.

Then she surprised him. “I love you too, Akhshey. You mean more to me today than yesterday.”

He was quiet for a long time as her words sank in.

“What happened?” she asked. “Why you quiet now? You think only you can make dialogues, Mr. Akhshey Verma?” she laughed.

He was serious.

“You gave me an answer to all the questions that have been muddling up my mind the whole night.”

Having taken at a quick bath, he munched his breakfast while going through the finer points of the presentation he was supposed to give at the meeting. He had made up his mind that he would excuse himself as soon as possible to be able to receive her at the main gate of entry to Fort William.

His boss was cooperative about his little request since he was quite used to it and knew that people who come for a short visit to Calcutta on official visits would have many other things to do too.

After the meeting, he rushed to his room to change and then reached the main lounge of visitor’s area near the gate. Thankfully, she had not reached until then. He would not have liked her to be alone in the visitors lounge. He picked up the remote and started switching channels and leafing through a magazine aimlessly.

After a few minutes, the door of the lounge opened and the sentry came inside and saluted smartly. “Sir, Madam’s car is at the gate.”

Akhshey came out and saw her at the parking area trying to make up her mind for the next course of action. He motioned to her to keep sitting as he walked up to the car and sat down by her side.

“No need to get down here,” he said. “The club house is just next building so we go there.”

Then he looked around.

“Where is Princess?” he asked. “You did not get her?”

“No,” she said, concentrating on reversing the car and negotiating it through the barrier. “She has a school picnic and visit to the Nehru Planetarium which her class teacher feels is very important for her. In fact, today she might get delayed even more than her usual time so I have asked the maid to stay over till I get back.”

“Awww…, that’s sad.” Then tried to tease her, “in that case, you will have to bear the brunt of my hugs”.

She smiled and looked at him from the corner of her eyes. Teasing him back, “I won’t mind that.”

They were conversing rapidly, at ease and without any break. They understood each other fully.

Sitting by the poolside at the club, he ordered gin and lime with soda for both. She had never tasted it. She said so to him, but he assured her that she would like it. In fact, he told her it was more of a ladies’ drink.

“You know, Sapna had mentioned this club to me quite often but we could never make it here.”

“That’s because you are destined to have gin and lime with me here.” He laughed.

She liked the drink; it was tangy. After a few sips she felt that it was making her a bit tipsy which was making her talk more. She liked the feeling when he held her with his arm around her waist as she got up in between to see the flower beds and the landscaping. It was exciting.

It was as if both of them had lost 30 years from their ages and were young again.

After the second drink, both of them felt lighter and more uninhibited about holding hands and walking close. The strange forces of attraction were to the fore as he led her to the dining room for buffet.

“Who wants to have lunch?” she asked. “I’m not at all hungry. I would rather be with you in the garden”

“Same here, but then if we don’t have it now we won’t get anything till the evening. They’re very strict about timings”

The spread on the table was limited but sumptuous and very well prepared. More than anything, the togetherness made them forget the world around them.

His room was on the first floor of the same building. He offered to her to come and rest there for some time and also see the room.

It was Victorian architecture at its best, with huge French windows and high ceilings and a spacious balcony, which opened to the view of the front lawn outside.

They sat down for some time on the garden chairs in balcony but it was getting hot so went back inside. Dipa was still feeling light footed after the drinks. When he closed the balcony door and entered the room, she was removing her sandals as he came and stood beside her.

She looked up. “What?”

In response, he just extended both his hands. She looked at him for a moment then placed her hands on his.

Pulling her gently and partially by her own desire, he made her stand and spontaneously took her in his arms. She did not resist. It was something she too had been wanting. For a long time they stood together in each other’s arms, without exchanging a single word. She had her eyes closed as she tried to become the part of a magical world which made her feel so desirable and complete.

She felt his hand on her face as a caressed her slowly from the forehead to the cheeks and lifting her chin gently he bent down and placed his lips all hers. It was like nothing that had happened before in their life as breathing became harder and the desire to melt into each other stronger.

She did not know how or when he picked her up while they were still kissing and led her to the large double bed in the centre of the room.

She opened her eyes momentarily and saw him looking straight at her face as he continued kissing her lips. When her eyes met, he broke away for a faction of a moment to say “I can’t live without you anymore”.

“Nor can I…” was all she could say.

“I want to kiss you all over your lovely face” he said. Than as she Kept her eyes closed in order to completeness of his touch, he continued kissing her gently on her forehead , then the eyebrows, eyes, cheeks and lips.

Subconsciously, she pulled him closer wanting more of his touch, as his lips started lower coming on to her chin, neck and shoulders making her body shiver with ecstasy.

It was with passion of desires and togetherness that they started desperately to struggle with each other’s clothes.

Despite the air conditioner, their bodies were sweating as they clung together. He was gentle, tender, and aware of her desires as they made passionate love ever so naturally.

A Holiday in Santorini

A Holiday in Santorini 2Santorini is one of the most beautiful places and one of the favorite tourist destinations in the world.

Its impressive caldera, famous volcano and the sight of a beautiful sunset makes it one of the most romantic spots and a perfect place for a quiet and memorable honeymoon holiday.

Getting To Santorini

Santorini is one of the famous Cyclades islands in Aegean Sea which was devastated by a violent volcanic eruption during the 16th century B.C.

Since there is an immense interest in the Greek offshore islands these days and there has been a spurt of tourist activity in this region, you will get many good ferries operating from the mainland. Since these ferries go to most islands, a holiday in Santorini should ideally be combined with the other islands.

Although the best way to go on a Holiday in Santorini is to catch a ferry but some people also prefer to choose the services of chartered flights. Personally, I would recommend trying out the ferries because you would be able to see the breathtaking beauty of the sea dotted with numerous small beautiful Greek islands as you cruise past them.

Top Reasons for a Holiday in Santorini

A Holiday in SantoriniSantorini has two principal townships, Oia and Fira. These towns lie on the rim of cliffs above the underwater caldera (crater) and overlook the pristine Aegean Sea.

With its long picturesque beaches made of white lava pebbles and the clear blue water all around, Santorini looks like something straight out of the book.  

It radiates the warmth of its people and natural beauty that speaks for itself; which makes it a top choice of honeymooners a well as tourists looking for something out of the ordinary.

The amazing sights, the delicious food and the warmth of the people who live on this island is something that will make you fill full of positive energy.

If you start taking pictures of the breathtaking beauty of this place you will have a collection that would certainly fill up the entire album and refresh your memories for years to come.

I’ve met many others before,

Yet,  I’ve never felt like this,

The way my senses inhale you

My body quivers,

with an exceptional bliss,

How I wish my senses get frozen

From my intensity of sweet desire,

I need you with me always

To hold you, feel you in my arms,

Till we are finally consumed by fire.

am3

The morning rays of sun,
Reflecting on your hair.
A beautiful sight they all say,
Your awakened beauty,
Reveals unparalleled start of day.

Vibrant colors splashing,
caressing your beautiful face.
Reflects a new dawn,
Makes my life pause,
As I soak in the amazing grace.

You make  my world beautiful,

I see beauty all around me.

The sights, the sounds, the world,

Its true beauty surrounds me.

The tree leaves made of emerald,

The seas with richest azure,

The gentle waves, the soothing sound,

All I see is beautiful all around.

I search my soul, trying to know

What makes this world go around?

Which flute is so magical?

What could be the source of this sound?

You beauty glistens in the sun

I feel the rays, And then realize,

The addiction has just begun.

Concept image of the six most common questions and answers on a signpost.

Instinct or intuition is the capability of having a flash of knowledge of certain event even before it has happened. Simply speaking, it is that gut feeling which, at hindsight, turns out to be right!

We all get these flashes at some time of the other; some of us however get it more than the others. Most of us generally simply overlook and brush it aside and recall only after something that came as instinct, proved to be correct.

Only a few mention it later as just one of those gut feelings that happened. What is amazing however, is the fact that people who place bets, go to horse races, indulge in lottery, etc seem to trust this amazing source of guidance more than scientists and believers!

With a little thought, you would realize that if you could train this instant or intuition and arrive at sound knowledge which you can use in your life it would make it much more meaningful and also give better results for every event that happens.

If you could train your instinct you could also use it for getting that “inner” guidance when in a tight corner.

How to train your instinct

1.    Trust your Instincts -The first step to training your instinct is learning to trust it.  As you trust it and proceed with this training you would see amazing results; some coming very slowly at first, but in the long run if you continue and have faith, it will help you achieving so many things that you desire and would solidify your faith even further.
What happens when you make a choice from among many candidates that have similar qualifications?  How do you select the best when everything else seems equal? Well, at this time your instinct comes into play and you automatically choose what you feel is the best; it is like the gut feeling that you have. But how often is this correct?  Training your instinct involves tapping into the subconscious mind to get the best results.

2.   Meditate – The next step is to learning to do instant meditation; that is, getting into this state for a short while instantly.  Meditation brings your mind to rest and helps in removing the clutter and noise which in turn makes it easier for you to focus and communicate with your subconscious mind that drives your thought process and actions. This is the time when you just hold on for a moment and listen to it.

3.   Ask the right question and learn to listen – this is very important; once your mind is at rest and calm, ask the question and wait for the answer.  To do so, you have to formulate the question very clearly before you start meditation.  Having made your mind calm, hold it in that state till the time you get the first thought about the question that you asked.  It may not come easily at first but with training, this communication between your thought and your subconscious would become clearer and clearer and you would get better results as you proceed.

4.   Listen to your gut feeling– sometimes thoughts come to us without even asking questions. Do not brush them aside or overlook them.  Instead, make a note of such fleeting thoughts that have been coming to you at odd moments. They often form a pattern that points to a solution.

5.   Make a journal of intuitive thoughts – Quite often, while you would notice that thoughts that arise without your knowledge are about the situation that is currently at hand or that is bothering you for some time.  These are also about the situations in which you are seeking some answers.   Therefore, it stands to reason that if you make a journal of these thoughts that pop in and out of your mind at all times. You would find it much easier going through them at the later time frame to see which ones of them applied to the situation and use it for your own good.

Woman-and-the-SunMost of us live our lives like chameleons; trying to “blend-in” by moulding our personalities and beliefs based on others opinions.

We trade our authentic self for security of being accepted and liked by our family, friends, peer groups as well as colleagues because of our fear of being judged as per their way of thinking.

And what does that lead to?

By suppressing our opinions, we are perceived as “good person” or “easy going”; But at a heavy cost.

We disrespected ourselves by allowing others to have an influence on some of the most crucial and major decisions of our lives. We end up not trusting ourselves to make our own choices. 

We withhold our thoughts and emotions and convey mixed signals or simply end up accepting something that we do not inherently like. Our frustration often turns into anger and that leads to guilt, shame, and anxiety. This is certainly a huge price to pay just so that others accept and like us!

This also destroys our confidence as well as self-worthiness. 

The only real solution to this is acceptance of what you are. You do not have to confirm to others beliefs but should be authentic.

Authenticity requires soul searching, commitment and hard work. Here are a few ideas to do so-

Step 1: Self love and forgiveness

Start by honoring and accepting the past by cultivating kindness towards yourself. Always be content and kind to yourself by stopping to blame yourself (or your luck) for whatever happened.

Step 2: Willingness to own your past mistakes and make a positive change.

Owning up own shortcomings and mistakes is the best way to repair our confidence and self-worth. Therefore make a commitment to change this.

Step 3: Creating a daily self-practice.

A daily practice of being truthful to yourself and living authentically takes care of the mind, body, as well as the spirit and nurtures a loving relationship with our soul. The following practices should be consciously followed in our life –

  • Mindfulness – Authentic people accept challenges and deal with situations calmly and display gratitude and love. How do we that? 
  • Self-respect – Be mindful of your beliefs. Remember, there will always be people who will not like your ideas, beliefs and attitude of self assurance – their opinions simply do not matter.
  • Courage – Create your own rules and standards that reflect your ideas and are in harmony with your true self. Have the courage to do what you believe is right. By doing so you will gain the inner strength and build your self-confidence.
  • Boldness – Be focused on being truthful at every moment, Once you are less focused about the acceptance and potential rejection from others you will feel liberated; which will definitely make you more happy. You will then face the world with more profound peace and confidence.

manifesttruedestiny1Manifestation is used  for achievement of goals. Be it a job,  business, relationship, material goods, general money abundance, treatment of disease, etc.
Reiki is a very powerful technique to achieve the same. This is so because all that you seek is its inherent factor – it is an intelligent energy  that gives us unexpectedly magical results.

All those who practice Reiki often see all their desires take shape. And that’s not all! Not only will you see the conscious desires take shape, but also latent out subconscious ones. There are no limits to what all you can manifest.

Reiki and manifestation are both based on the laws of attraction. But Reiki uses it for the larger good of the universe whereas manifestation is specific to an individual for a particular cause.

Manifestation can be seen as a subset of Reiki. At this point, let me also clarify that Reiki is just one of the tools to manifest; there are many other methods but – Reiki is very easy and at the same time one of the most effective too. It can be done with much more relative ease than any other methods.

Of course, you need to have been trained to at least level one; and preferably to level two. If you haven’t done so, is a good time to start.

But wait!

You can also do it a similar way but getting a Reiki practitioner to do it for you. Most will not charge you too much for this and will limit it to a charge that is levied for one Reiki healing session. This can also be done remotely.

Things to know

  • In manifestations we are going to seek help of the universal forces to initiate and change circumstances that lead to  achievement of your goals. This takes time, sometimes even weeks.depending upon  your aim. But generally you will start “feeling” the chances before they start occurring. Therefore, just be patient and carry on your practice’s regularly and sincerely.
  • Never do a manifestation that would harm anyone even obliquely. Eg – If you are seeking a job, don’t seek a job that has already got someone employed on it. If you seek a good life partner, leave it to the unseen forces to decide, don’t try to manifest on a particular person because he out she may be married or interested in someone else and you should refrain from forcing them into an alliance.
  • Always have a positive intent and that will work out the best way for you. Discuss with your Reiki master or write HERE giving your situation and you will get the wordings for exact positive intent that would get you the desired result.
