Color Therapy

January 15th, 2010 . by admin


Color therapy explains the special connection between color and emotion. Your idea of happiness is reflected in your choice of clothing color or colors that constantly attract you. On the same note, colors you dislike can provide clues to problems to be resolved in order for you to attain inner piece and become a happier person. Our lives can be more physically and spiritually fulfilling through the well-informed use of color.

Red
If this color attracts you, you love attention and enjoy being in the limelight. Sometimes you can neglect the feelings of those around you. You derive happiness from adventure and excitement. If you dislike red, you are likely to be fearful of rejection and defeat. Learn how to conquer your fear and inject your life with red energy.

Pink
People drawn to this color are naturally loving and sensitive. However, they are dependent on others for emotional support and should do themselves a favor by learning to be more confident. If you shun pink, you may find that you are overwhelmed by ill-feelings towards one or both of your parents. You will need to acknowledge and face these issues.

Orange or peach
If these colors attract you, you are probably full of energy and determination. Keeping yourself busy and engaging in activities makes you happy. If you dislike these colors, it could be an indication that you are mentally or physically exhausted.

Yellow
If you like this color, the company of happy and active people makes you happy. If you dislike yellow, it is likely that you are burdened by the feeling of being helpless.

Green
If you like this color, you are probably most comfortable when observing people while keeping a distance. You conceal your strong emotions from others. People may find you aloof. If this is true, a touch of yellow on your attire will aid in the communication of your emotions. If you dislike green, it shows that you may have felt lonely or disappointed during a certain point in your life.

Blue
If you are attracted to the color blue, you enjoy independence in working life or being the leader. It is important to set aside time to relax and rejuvenate yourself. If you shun blue, it is likely that you value a high position and honour and there is a long-standing fear of losing either of the above.

Purple
If you prefer this color, tranquility sets in when smart people surround you. You are in admiration of their personalities and are excited by their ideas. However, listening to others and forgiving their mistakes is a virtue you need to learn. If purple turns you off, it indicates a barrier. You feel that you are controlled and therefore constrained by someone. It is also likely that your creative juices are being obstructed from flowing freely.

White
Wearing white shows that you like being simple. This classic color also reveals that you like people to take notice of you. If you are averse to white, your fear is that of being separated from the one you love.

Black
Wearing black demonstrates that you have control over the situation and power is in your hands. However, it can also be worn by someone to hide his low self-confidence. If you shun black, there could be a hurdle in your ability to lead that needs to be overcome.

Life Is Like A Cup Of Coffee

July 26th, 2009 . by admin

Read to me :

Life is like a cup of coffee. Coffee is bitter but almost everyone loves it. Life has many suffering but almost everyone loves to have life. People add sugar and milk to coffee to make it less bitter. Everyone adds variety to life to make life less boring and suffering.

Life Is like a cup of coffee. Coffee is so additive. Those who drink coffee everyday cannot live a day without coffee. Life is additive as none of us is willing to give up life.

Life is like a cup of coffee. To enjoy a cup of coffee, you must enjoy every sip. To enjoy life, you must enjoy everyday of your life.

Life is like a cup of coffee. Sometimes you like to drink coffee alone and sometimes in a group. Life is the same. Sometimes you like to be alone and sometimes with your loved ones.

Life is like a cup of coffee. There are many types of coffee just like there are many different types of life.

Life is like a cup of coffee. Coffee tastes best when it is hot. Same for your life. You are enjoying life when you are "hot" in luck, "hot" among your friends and "hot" in your career. Being "hot" is like the afternoon sun, strongest and brightest part of your whole life.

Next time when you drink a cup of coffee, reflect about your life.

Your Lucky Star

July 23rd, 2009 . by admin

Read to me :

Let’s give thanks to our lucky stars. Why? This is because it has been an age old idea that each person has been designated a unique star of destiny. Up till the present, several people have the opinion that each of us has a star in the sky that bears his or her name on it. It gives off light at the person’s birth and darkens when he die. For the moment, it shows him the way through life and brings him good luck.

All charms bearing the shape of a star are deemed rather lucky. The pentacle is a widely adopted charm, which is a five pointed star. In olden days, people held the view that the pentacle was able to contain the forces of evil and make them lose their power. 

Understanding this law can make you richer

February 1st, 2009 . by admin

Read to me :

Life is governed by cause and effect. Every cause will produce an effect. Whether you understand the law of cause and effect, you will still be affected by the law.

Some cause and effect are simple. When you eat, the effect is you will have energy and need to go to the toilet to pass out the waste. When you place your hand in the fire, the effect is that you will get burnt.

Other cause and effect takes a longer time. When we cut down trees and burn a lot of fossil fuel, it take a long time to see the green house effect. You must have done good deeds in the past lives that lets you be one of the fortunate users of the internet. In some countries, the number of internet users is less than 1% of the whole population.

Does this law really work?

You study hard for your maths test and failed. You work hard at your job but miss the promotion. How can this law of cause and effect works.

Perhaps the cause is wrong. People who only read maths book will fail maths. But people who do many maths problems will pass maths. People who work hard like a cow, will not get promoted. Bosses only promote people who can make a lot of money for the company, solve the boss’ problem or is the pet of the boss. Somehow working hard is never the cause of all success.

If a certain cause never reaches the effect you desire, then it is time to change the cause. It is like a fly banging itself on a closed window, trying to get out. The window is closed so no matter how hard the fly try, it won’t get out. The fly has a better chance trying on another window.

How To Make Use Of This Law?

We tend to focus on the effects. We want to be successful. We want to have a lot of money. We want to have a wonderful life. Success, money and good life are effects.

If we create the cause, we will get the effect. Learn from those people who have create the effect that you want. Learn the methods and duplicate the effect.

If you want to pass your exam, learn how to study each subject the right way. Passing exam is not about how long you read the text book. Ask your teacher for the right way to study that subject.

If you want to get rich, learn the ways that other people get rich. Some people get rich by getting higher qualification, playing office politics and climbing the corporate ladder to higher management. Some people get rich by cooking well and selling tasty food.

Life is like a soccer game. You need to follow the rules to win the game. If you decide to change the rules of a soccer game and start running around with the ball in your hands or kick the ball into your own goal post, you will never win.

To make full use of the law of cause and effect, you just need to do 3 things

  • Focusing on creating the cause, the effect will take care of itself.
  • Learn how people create their success and you can duplicate the same success.
  • Change the cause when the effect is not what you want.

Memories

December 15th, 2008 . by admin

Read to me :

Everyone’s life is filled with memories. Your past memories define the present "you". If you cannot remember your past, you will not feel that there is a "you" around.

What Are Memories Made Up Of?

If you think about your past, you can only recall bits and pieces of your past. No one can recall every moment of his life.

So what makes you remember those moments and not the other period of your life?

What you remember are moments filled with emotions. If there is no intense emotion at that moment, you are unlikely to remember that moment for life.

In the past, there is a great ancient teacher. Before he speak anything important, he would slap his student first and then speak. This helps his student to remember his teaching better because of the pain.

How To Forget Some Memories?

Memories can be happy or painful. Happy memories are worth keeping in your head but those painful ones are very torturing.

If memories are just charged emotions, you can remove the unwanted memories by removing the emotions behind them. There are 2 ways I used to remove the emotions behind the memories.

Release Technique is the fastest way I can remove my emotions. By applying Release Technique while recalling the unwanted memories, I quickly remove the emotions about that memories. When I don’t feel anything about the memories, that memories will soon be forgotten.

Before I learn about the Release Technique, I use NLP to help me forget the emotion.

  • First I imagine I am watching the unwanted memories on a movie screen in color.
  • Then I rewind the whole scene backwards, very fast in black and white. I need to rewind the scene backwards at least 10 times. If there is any speech, I will see the speaker swallowing back his words.
  • Now I will recall the same memories again. Usually my feeling become less intense. I would repeat the whole process until I feel nothing when I recall those memories.

When you do not feel about a certain memory, that memory will soon fade away with time.

Life is too short to have bad memories. Just take these bad memories as experience of life. Live happily.

Root Of Your Problems

November 26th, 2008 . by admin

Read to me :

Life is filled with problems. Everyone in this world has problems. You have your own problems. Your parents have their problems. Your spouse has his/her problems. Your children have their problems. Even your enemies have their own problems.

However, there is only 1 place on earth where the people living there, has no problem. It is not the old folks home because even old people have their fair share of problems. The place where people have no problem is the cemetery. Yes, only dead people have no problem at all.

When does your problems start appearing?

 Your life started out as a child without any problem. When there is food, you eat. When there is water, you drink. You have a carefree life in your early childhood. Can you remember when you start to have problems?

Your problems start to appear when you have desires. You start thinking of what you want and then you start seeing problems around you. You may have problems as young as 5 years old when you want toys that other children have. When you grow older, you start comparing yourself with others and create many desires. This increases the number of problems you have.

Desire Is The Root Of Your Problems

A river or the sea can be very beautiful to you but when you want to cross it, that river or sea becomes a problem.

Your parents are the most loving being to you. When your parents cannot give you what you desire, your parents become a problem.

You started your job happily. When you start wanting something different from what your job is offering, this job becomes a problem.

You married your spouse lovingly and happily. When you decide to change your spouse’s behavior, your spouse becomes a problem.

If you examine your life’s problems carefully, all your problems are attached to desires.

What can you do?

Having many problems in life is no fun. A life with a lot of problems, is very heavy and miserable.

Although it is not possible to get rid of all your problems, you can get rid of many unnecessary ones. You can ask yourself the following questions:

  • Why do you want this problem solved? Find out the real desire behind the problem.
  • Will someone die if this problem is not solve? Is it a life and death problem?
  • What other options can I have to satisfy the real desire?
  • If you still want the desire, what steps can you do today to move towards achieving your desire?

For example, many of us have a problem of not having a big house. By answering the questions above, you will know that the real desire or purpose of having a big house is to show off to your peers. Failure to show off to others will hurt your pride but it is not a life and death matter. If you still want to show off to your peers, show off in other ways that you are better than them. No one will win in every way. Now your problem either disappear or become smaller.

Controlling Desire

Desire rises from a noisy mind. We can reduce the number of problems in our life by controlling the number of desires that our mind gives us. Quieting our mind is the best way to control the number of desires that arises. Fewer desires, fewer problems.

  • Meditation is a great way to control our mind and make it quiet. Just sit down in a quiet spot of your room. You need not sit on the floor but you can sit on the chair. Sit up straight and don’t lean on the chair. This will keep you from falling asleep. Keep your eye totally closed or partially closed. I find that keeping my eyes partially closed, prevent too many thoughts from arising in my mind. Then you focus on your breathing. Everytime you breathe in, say "In" in your mind. Do the same when you breathe out. Don’t use your mouth to say "In" or "Out" but say it quietly in your mind. If a thought or a voice arises, just say in your mind that it is a thought or a voice. Don’t analyze, argue or follow the thought or voice. Just let it go and focus back to your breathing. Start meditating 5 minutes per day. Slowly increase the time. If you can meditate without thoughts for 45 minutes, your mind is within your control.
  • I found another way to quiet the mind very fast. It is called the Release Techniques. If you check your thoughts, it is always backed by emotions. The greater the emotions, the stronger are your thoughts. Release Technique helps to kill the emotion attached and when there is no emotion, the thought just become blur and soon you will forget about it. Same applies to desire and memories. Due to the copyright protection, I cannot describe the method here. This technique really helps me to control my emotions. You can buy the Abundance Course book or audio here.

A noisy mind produces many desires while a controlled and quiet mind will produce few or no desire.

I am not telling you not to have desires. Only dead people have no desire. Just control the number of desires in your life. Concentrate on the few important wants in your life and make them into goals. Do steps to get what you want. Don’t just sit there wishing for it.

Most important, life is too short to have too many problems. Live happily.

Dooms Day 21-Dec-2012?

There is another program that talks about the dooms day in 2012. The exact day is said to be 21st December 2012.

Death Comes To All

August 15th, 2008 . by admin

Read to me :

Yesterday, my uncle passed away. As I see him lying motionless in the coffin, suddenly I realise that death is the definite thing that comes to all living things. I know that death comes to all but I always think that death will happens to others but not people around me. How foolish of me?

As my uncle lies there, I notice that he is no different from the coffin, the tables and the chairs in the room. My uncle is lifeless. Like a electrical television that was turned on previously and response to the remote control you pressed, now the television is suddenly unplugged and looked like the rest of the furniture in your house. The dead is no different from a unplugged electrical appliance.

Souls

Living beings are said to have souls. The Taoists beleive that every human has 3 souls. Loosing any one of the souls will make the person insane and loosing all the three souls will declare the person dead. When a person passed away, one soul will reside in the grave, the other one will reside in the house while the third one is allowed to wonder about.

The Buddhists believe that all living beings have souls. The plants has one soul, the soul of life. The animals are said to have two souls; the soul of life and the soul of feeling. Humans on the other hand, have 3 souls; the soul of life, the soul of feeling and the soul of wisdom. Perhaps the reason for not killing animals and humans in Buddhism may be because both human and animals have the soul of feeling and therefore will suffer in pain when being killed.

The Christians also believe that there is a soul in every human and the Devil likes collecting human souls.

Death Comes In Waves

I live in a city and when I see one funeral, I am bounded to see another funeral soon in close distance. There are times when there is no funeral, you cannot find one anywhere at all. It seems that death comes in waves.

Yesterday, I confirmed this findings with the undertakers in my uncle’s funeral. They too found that death seems to swipe through one region at a time, like a wave. They joked that the God Of Death ride a carriage and where ever He goes, he scoopes up the souls of those whose death is near. Then He leaves the region and goes elsewhere to fulfill His duties.

Some Chinese believes that any dying person who is suppose to die, will not live beyond any of the 4 major festivals. If they live beyond this major festival, the next obstacle will be the next festival. The 4 major festivals are dummping festival, hungry ghost festival, moon cake festival and Dong Ji.

Lesson

You cannot be sure you will be rich. You cannot be 100% sure your job will be the same forever. But one thing for sure in the changing world is that death will comes to you one day.

We must learn to value and enjoy everything we have now. We need to learn about what is really important in our life and put more time in them. Instead of keep thinking about tomorrow, we need to think about living today as if it is the last day of our life.

Live today. Learn to enjoy every bit of today now.

Determine Your Luck Level

April 17th, 2008 . by admin

Read to me :

The first step in solving any problem is to know where you are. Knowing where you are enables you to know that if a luck improvement method you are using, works or not. Knowing where you are helps you to understand your situation better and therefore helps you in determining which area needs improvement first.

I am not asking you to check any palmistry, numerology or horoscope. You just need to do the following for the next 7 days.

  • Count Your Blessing : For the next 7 days, count your blessing for each day. Write them down in a small booklet that fits into your wallet. Counting your blessing helps your to determine the level of good luck in your life. Then why not count your unhappiness in your life? The reason is that your unhappiness may not be due to your luck. Your unhappiness can be created by your ego or your desire. If I start counting what I don’t have, the list can be very long depending on how greedy I am. Even the rich and powerful people have unfulfilled desires and cravings. It is just like eating chocolates. Eating a piece of chocolate may not satisfied your craving. Eating a box of chocolate will not even make you stop craving.
  • Compare With People Around You : This is the easy part. All of us are born with the ability to constantly compare ourselves with others. Everyday, every minute, we are comparing our body, our looks, our dressing, our house, our car, our children, our spouse and even our job with what other people have. Now write them down. For each item that you loose to the other person, write down something you win over him.  Maybe you feel your shoes are shiny than his. Maybe you feel your lips, head, hair, or even big toe looks better than his. Just write down anything you win over him,  for each comparison that you loose to him. A win is a win, no matter how insignificant it is. If you cannot find any winning comparison, look harder at him, his belongings, his friends and even his family. There must be something that you are better than him.
  • Compare With The Less Fortunate : There are these famous words : "I complained of having no shoes until I met a man with no feet.". Compare yourself with the less fortunate people you know. Search the internet for photos of people who are starving, illiterate, old, sick, insane, beggars and handicapped.  Many of us are blinded by what we don’t have, than to see what we have. This step will help you to see what you have : a normal look, a working body with all parts intact, a mind that can think, youth and more.

Counting your blessings everyday using the above 3 steps will be beneficial to you in many ways:

  • You will have an idea of how good or bad your current situation is. You will see that although your luck is not as good as you want, but it is not as bad as you think. This will boost your confidence.
  • You can judge whether the luck enhancement methods you are applying now or going to apply, works for you or against you.

 

How To Kick Start Your Day?

March 10th, 2008 . by admin

Read to me :

Everyday is a new day. New things are happening everyday. The people you see everyday is different from yesterday : physically, emotionally or spiritually.

People used to blame their bad day by saying "Waking up on the wrong side of the bed". But to many people, both the left or right side of the bed seems be both wrong if it is a working day. It is the thinking that counts.

I used to start my day in a lousy way. If it is a working day, I would wake up and say "Oh God, not another lousy day!" This is exactly what happen to that day. People come into my life everyday to make me lousy and I always wonder why my life is like this.

How to power start your morning?

There is a better way to start your day:

  • Waking Up : When you are first awake, be thankful of the wonderful things that have happen to you. Forget about those yesterday events that makes you feel bad. Be thankful you are still healthy, able to see, smell, talk and taste. Be thankful you have an income at the end of the month. Be thankful of the good night sleep. Be thankful of your possessions : car, house, money and family. Affirm that you are expecting more good things to come into your life today.
  • Intention : While you brush your teeth, have an intention for the day. Everyday we go about our routine tasks like a zombie. Make today a different day. Have a purpose for today. You will feel different. May be just for today, you will make it a point to stay happy no matter what happens. May be just for today, you will make an intention to be with your family 5 minutes more. Make a intention today.
  • Feel positive : Before you leave your house, think and feel positive. Don’t  think about work. Don’t complain about anything. Don’t nag at your kids or spouse. Make your breakfast with your family a happy one. Feel good when you leave the house.

At the beginning of each year, you would do something auspicious such as getting new furnitures, new clothing, new decoration; in hope that your new year would be a great one.

In the same manner, making your morning a happy one and getting out of the house in a good mood would bring you the right mind to attract good things into your life for the rest of the day.
