In the course of life we often come across moments when we have done our best and still things don’t seem to go in the desired direction. At such times we wish we had some power to change situations in our life. A power that could change the experience of our lives.

Well friends, we do have a power in our hands and that is the power of prayer. So how prayer can bring about the desired change, how it can influence the environment around us, and how it works?

Accessing love

For every human being love is a prerequisite for life. Life cannot be imagined without love. A life devoid of love cannot qualify to be really called as life because love is the highest experience of life, be it the love of our parents, spouse, friends, children, or the society. The reality however is that this experience often eludes us. Therefore, it is the yearning of every human heart to have constant presence of love in our lives.

So how can we have constant presence of love in our lives and why we are unable to experience it on a constant basis?

It is a natural human desire to experience a higher reality of life than where we presently are. Who would not like to be wealthier, healthier, happier, more beautiful, more intelligent, more powerful, or more fulfilled in life? It is indeed possible to shift your reality to the next level of experience which would be a higher experience in all dimensions. So how can we take the experience of our life to the next level? How this shift in our reality can be achieved?

Succeeding during change

World is a dynamic place, always happening and ever changing. Change is happening whether one is moving from one place to another, one profession to another, one age group to another, or one position to another, so on and so forth.

On the one hand, though the change is always exciting and brings freshness into the experience of our lives, yet on the other hand there are certain changes that are less desirable. Still one has to deal with the reality of change in life and learn to tide over it and become successful. So how can we successfully deal with change?

Well, there is one strategy that can always ensure success during change and that is “to change with the change”.
Yes, when the reality is changing around you, you too need to change to cope with it and to succeed. Changing yourself means changing your response to the situation. If the situation is changing then it will not be possible to succeed if our responses remain the same. So the question is how our responses can change and what needs to change to change our responses.

You as a creator of your reality

All of us live a life created by ourselves. Be it good or bad,our life is being shaped by the choices that we are making and decisions that we are taking. However, most of us do not believe so. We feel that life is given to us and we have no role to play in what happens to us.

Some even go to the extent of rejecting this “creating your reality” stuff as an egoistic pursuit of people who commit the sin of considering themselves to be God.

However friends, the truth is that it is far from being an egoistic pursuit.

Transcend time to move into timelessness

For most human beings as life unfolds most of the things in life go on increasing like the wealth, success, social status, recognition, intelligence, wisdom etc. However, as life passes, where on one hand we gain so many things, what we go on losing on the other is time.

It feels as if time is slipping away from our hands. Whatever time is gone we lose it never to gain it back. One can regain wealth, success, health, lost relationships but time slips by forever, once it is gone it is lost. Sometimes, especially when we are living through the best moments of our life a fear of losing this time crops up from nowhere. So what can be done? Is it possible to hold time still and live without fear of ever losing it?

How to be fulfilled in life?

Many of us in life are happy, successful, and have excellent relationships, yet we do not feel fulfilled. We feel as if something is missing in life and we are even unable to figure out what it is.

There is an unknown seeking, a quest within us that we cannot truly define, but it feels like a longing for something. It is almost like a pain and yet we do not know the basis of this pain. A great many people live through this experience of life and think that may be it is a quest to know oneself or to find a meaning or purpose of life.

So the question is what is fulfillment and how to find it?

How to create the feeling of happiness?

Everyone wants to be happy in life. However, as life progresses many of us experience that in spite of being successful and achieving everything in life we are not happy.

All the success and achievements are not creating happiness in our lives. As a result we lose interest in life and it appears as if we are merely existing rather than fully living our lives.

So the question is why does it happen? We seek success in order to be happy then why don’t we actually feel happy after achieving it?

Well, this happens because we operate from a state of lack and absence. Whenever we stay in a feeling that we lack something in life, no matter what we achieve in the outside life our internal feeling does not change. This is because in order to feel happy we need to change the internal feeling of lack and absence. If this happens then we can be happy irrespective of our success and when happiness does not depend on success, there is less stress to succeed and therefore success also comes naturally.

Life can only be enjoyed completely if lived in harmony with people around us, be it family, friends, or coworkers. The moment harmony is disrupted joy is gone from life. However, all of us experience moments in life where harmony in relationships is lost and peace of mind is also lost along with it. It happens even with people we love and in relationships that we value and that are important for us in our life.

So the question is how this can be changed and how can we have harmony in relationships?

How to live an extraordinary life?

Life is an extraordinary gift and all of us would like to have an extraordinary experience of living it. However, most of us find ourselves stuck in a monotonous, ordinary, and routine existence. We try to bring some extra joy by going to a restaurant, party, or for a movie, but after a while this too becomes a routine affair and stops exciting us.

We often wonder if it is possible to break out of this routine and enjoy an extraordinary life.

Recognize the power of aligned present action to create desired future

It is a natural human tendency to dream of a beautiful future. However, we all know that mere imagination cannot take us there. We need to take action.

In spite of this knowledge most of us often postpone taking action into a distant future. Due to this we become uncertain about realizing our desired future, and life loses its charm for us.

So now the question is how this can be changed?

How to access wisdom of heart?

Each one of us would like to act wisely in order to become successful in life. We would like to have more insight into life. However, most of us are unaware of the way in which wisdom can be accessed. This is because we are habitual of using our mind and have never used our heart.

Besides, in many cases the heart itself has become incapable of providing any guidance at all. Why is it so? What can be done to change this?

This is so because over a period of time we have suppressed many emotions in our heart. As a result, the heart has become heavy with stored pain and has become incapable of giving any guidance.

So how can we bring it back to life?

Activate wisdom of heart

Wisdom is a higher intelligence, which is a function of heart.

All of us normally use the intelligence of mind, which includes understanding, reasoning, logic, and analysis. Therefore, in order to move towards using higher intelligence, we must first understand how the intelligence of mind is limited and why we should use wisdom of heart more often than we usually do.

First, let us understand what mind is.

Our mind is a collection of our thoughts. These thoughts can be categorized into our beliefs, opinions, ideas, values, and principles. Therefore, when we look at reality and try to understand with our mind, we see it through our own thoughts. This becomes our own interpretation of reality rather than a true account of reality.

Believe in the possibility to manifest dreams

Each one of us wants to live a dream life. A life where all our wishes are fulfilled and we achieve everything that we want to achieve.

However, very few amongst us really believe in the possibility of realizing their dreams and living a dream life. This is because the dreams appear bigger than our present reality and our present capability of achieving them.

Well, friends a dream would not be a dream if it is not a higher reality. It would not inspire you if it is not something more magnificent than your present reality and if it does not require you to become much more than what you presently are.

Therefore, by no means you should leave the pursuit of your dreams as there can be no life more painful than the one where you leave the pursuit of your dreams. A life not lived in pursuit of your dreams is an average life, devoid of any excitement. It is not really lived but just passed by doing activities that help you survive but not truly enjoy your life. Think for a moment, we just have this life and not going after your dream would mean always living a lesser life than your dream life.

What needs to change to change situations?

Sometimes we come across such situations in life that are unpleasant and disturbing and no matter how hard we try, they do not change.

What needs to be done in such circumstances? What kind of action would bring about a change?

Well, every situation is designed specifically according to our learning needs. Therefore, if we are able to understand the design of a situation, we will be able to learn whatever we need to learn from it. Our learning is nothing but an evolution in thought leading to a change in our perception.

Understand failure to understand success

All of us always want to succeed in life; it is quite a natural desire. When the desire is natural the fulfillment should also be natural. Yet we observe failures happening in our life and in lives of others. Why is it so?

In order to understand this we must understand that nature is always perfect. The sun never fails to rise, earth never fails to rotate, and birds never fail to fly. Then why human beings do not always succeed in their endeavors?

What exactly causes human failure and what needs to be done to correct this?

Profit by managing inner energy

Life depends upon choices. At every instant life is giving us options from which we have to choose.

So it becomes very important to learn what kind of choices would result in gain and which ones would result in loss.

Well, it all depends on energy.

While making a choice all you have to do is to look at your energy. If one choice reduces your energy then there is no need to make that choice in spite of all the reasons in its favor.

On the other hand, if a choice increases your energy then that is a right choice, even though there are sufficient reasons against it.

How to become clear about your choice?

Most of us are often confused about our choices in life. We wonder why we do not know what we want. If the choice is ours why we should not know it? If we would not know our choices then who would? Moreover, if someone else decides what our choice should be, then it cannot be considered as our choice, it would be that person’s choice about us.

However, our problem is not that others have other choices about us, but our problem is that we are not convinced about our own choices. Therefore, we are creating room for other people to interfere with our choices. It is our own confusion that is the problem.

Recognize internal value to create external wealth

Having financial security and abundance is something that each one of us desires. Everyone dreams of a life where there is permanent financial security and abundance.

How can we reach that stage in life where we can be sure that we will always have abundance and will be totally secure from the financial standpoint?

If you really want to reach such a stage in life, then it is important to look within and assess your internal value because it is your internal value that determines your extrinsic wealth and security.

So now the question is how to assess the internal value? In order to know your internal value, you need to answer the following question in your heart.

Change aspirations to increase potential and riches

It is a natural human desire to have wealth in life and feel wealthy. We don’t just want to have more wealth but we also want to feel like we have more and relax in realization that we have a lot.

So the basic desire is to feel that we have more and also to have it simultaneously.

Now the question is that if that is the desire why we do not feel like we have more and why it always feels like we don’t have enough even though we may be seeing that we have much more than many.

There is only one simple reason for it and the reason is that we constantly work from the same level of potential and also stay at the same level of potential. This happens because we do not create new aspirations that would require us to access our higher potential and at the same time build our potential as well.

Friends, consider this for a moment, we keep changing many things in life, like our jobs, our, locations, and sometimes even our plans, however, what we do not change is our aspiration.

We are stuck with the same old aspirations that do not mobilize us sufficiently.

How to stay passionate about achieving goals?

Each one of us wants to achieve something in life.

Something that we know has the potential to take our life to the next level, where we will experience greater joy, peace, love, and fulfillment in life.

However, we often feel a lack of drive or passion to really go for it and no matter how much we desire that goal, we do not pursue it wholeheartedly. So how this can be changed?
