Love Was Born

Love Was Born

The stars blink in awe
when the soul gleam from love,
of the gleam of souls the celestial light
bursts forth and life miracles radiate in eternity.
Love was born and set the worlds alight.

    I Met A Word

    I Met A Word

    Last night, in my dream, while I was wandering in the wildlands and crossing silent

    shadows,

    I met a word and ask: ”What’s your name?

    ”My name is love and I’m alone in life,

    I need you, otherwise will be lost the dream”.

    I answered: ”We need you too, but we are in pain and scared and don’t admit it.

    Please, lend me your glowing eyes”.

    ”No, no need, you’re in the embrace of light, but you’ve forgotten it”.

      The Keeper

      THE KEEPER
      You were like a dream, I wish I hadn’t slept through.

      Within it I fell deeper, than your heart would care to let you.
      I thought you were a keeper, I wish I could have kept you.
      – Lang Leav

      The Invitation

      The Invitation

      It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

      It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.

      It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life’s betrayals or have become shrivelled and closed from fear of further pain.

      I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it, or fade it, or fix it.

      I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own; if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, be realistic, remember the limitations of being human.

      It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself. If you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul. If you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.

      I want to know if you can see Beauty even when it is not pretty every day. And if you can source your own life from its presence.

      I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand at the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, ‘Yes.’

      It doesn’t interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone and do what needs to be done to feed the children.

      It doesn’t interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the centre of the fire with me and not shrink back.

      It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.

      I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.

        In the streets of wilderness

        I hear their cries for freedom

        Also the laughs and enjoyment

        Of those lusty souls

        In the streets of wilderness

        I hear the unspoken words

        The suppressed dream

        and many young souls

        with a spirit to fight

        In the streets of wilderness

        I hear them turn instantly into adulthood

        In the streets of wilderness

        To be happy but the sadness

        Of their eyes catches my attention

          And in next moment, I am only a laughing stock

          You praise me, amaze me at one time

          And in the next moment, I am a subject of silly talk.

          You make me believe at one time

          And in next moment, you break that trust

          You paint me with magical colours at one time

          And in the next moment, you leave me only to rust.

          You make me jump higher than I wish for at one time

          And in next moment, I see my dreams burning to the ground

          You show your concerns to me at one time

          And in the next moment, your words just rebound.

          Hope you realize and weigh your words before you say

          Make promises only what you can keep

          Cause I am still counting to this day

            Past Life Regression: Is It Possible to Have Lived a Previous Life?

            past life regression

            People have attested to living previous lives for centuries, but is that possible? Here’s the surprising theory behind past life regression.

            Have we been here before? It’s a question many of us may have felt compelled to ask at some point.

            Perhaps you’ve had a dream in which you believed you were living the life of someone in the past and subsequent research has revealed that you dreamed of details you could not possibly have known about.

            From famous kings & queens to poor children, many people feel that they have lived previous lives.

            Hypnotists feel that even the events of the film The Prodigy could have a grounding in past life theory.

            Here’s what you need to know about a past life regression and what evidence there is that you may have been here before.

            Do You Dream?

            One of the easiest ways to begin questioning whether you may have had a past life is to ask yourself how often you dream?

            Some people don’t dream a lot but others have really vivid dreams on a regular basis. If you wake up in a cold sweat screaming because your dreams are so real and you feel you live them then it could be you are reliving past trauma.
            You could try past life regression to see if it sparks the same emotions you have in your dreams. Read this post to find out more.

             

            Are You Naturally A History Buff?

            Are you good at history? When you read history books, historical fiction, watch documentaries or even see historical maps do you feel as if you are living through history? Do you know all the details before you’ve even learned them?

            This could be because you have lived it through before. Learn to consider whether there is any era or country which stands out to you or there is one specific character or figure you relate to.

            This might be because your past self relates to this period. The trauma you experience when you dream or when you read about history might be unresolved trauma from the past.

             

            Do You Get Déjà Vu On a Regular Basis?

            The feeling that you have been here before is not just expressed in dreams or in representations of the past through documentaries and television shows.

            It can be expressed in unexpected situations and trigged by smell or by touch. Even just arriving in a new city you’ve never been before can open up a host of new memories despite the fact you have never visited it.

            Eating a certain dish or smelling a certain perfume can also bring about memories of a past life.

             

            Past Life Regression Can Give Your Life Meaning

            There is no scientific way of knowing whether past lives are real or not but believing in past lives can help give your life meaning. You can make sense of some unexplained events in your life and your reactions to trauma.

            A past life regression, where a trained specialist will take you back in time, to unlock your past lives can be a rewarding and fulfilling experience. Rather than feeing that your experiences are random or unexplained, your past life memories can be bought to life and put into context.

            10 Nightmares And What They Are Trying To Tell You

            10 Nightmares And What They Are Trying To Tell You

            Nightmares bring alive our worst fears. 

            Think of a time when you woke up in the middle of the night, soaking in sweat, shaking with fear and feeling your heart in the mouth. Yes! If you have been there, you know nightmares are no fun. They are absolute terror.

            And it’s understandable that you might be having nightmares recently, the meanings of which you have no clue about and this is how you stumbled upon this article.

            Even a person with sound mental health can seldom have their dreams turn into dark, vivid and terrifying images, interrupting their sleep. Sadly, some people find it extremely difficult to fall asleep, once they wake up from a nightmare. 

            It is absolutely natural to have nightmares now and then. Many children have nightmares but they generally stop between the age of 9 to 11 years but if the nightmares keep disturbing your sleep past that age, you might as well be having them for the rest of your life. Interestingly, children have more nightmares than adults. About 10-50% of the children have them while only a mere 2.5-10% of the adults have them.

            Nightmares can also have their sources in trauma, physical illness, stress or psychopathology. Both the prevalence of nightmares and the relation between nightmares and measures of psychopathology have been extensively studied.

             

            How is a nightmare different from dreams?

            Dreams are images and sensation created by our subconscious mind with the help of the information we perceive in our waking life. Unlike nightmares, dreams are not only imageries that have a horrific or fear-evoking element in it.

            Dreams can be soothing, based on wish-fulfillment, fun, romantic and sometimes bizarre, disturbing or frightening. Some dreams will actually leave you grinning when you wake up, wishing to go back to sleep to complete it.

            A nightmare, on the other hand, has an aversive nature – no one really feels gratified, pleased or pacified after experiencing a nightmare.

            Hartmann (1984) defined a nightmare as a long, frightening dream that awakens the sleeper, and awakening from a frightening dream has been used as an operational definition of nightmares by others. (1) Some of the researchers believe that nightmares are categorically an individual experience and hence is better left for the participants to describe.

            Nightmares come in different forms and shapes having very distinct themes, contexts, feel and varying vividness.

            Your Nightmares might surprisingly be trying to hint you at something you have been long ignoring.

            Analyzing the meaning of nightmares is not too difficult when you know the key themes and compare them with your current life incidents.

            I will go through 10 common nightmares and what they might mean for you.

            Once you go back and retrospect, you will realize they are simply reflecting your life and what you are currently going through.

            1. Drowning:

            downing

            Often you might dream of drowning in some deep water body; it could either be you slipping deeper into the depths of water by yourself or it might be someone trying to drown you in the water with force while you struggle to get out of it.

            Drowning nightmares will characteristically occur when a person is going through an emotionally overwhelming phase of life. A person who has nightmares of drowning might be having some repressed or badly regulated emotions – related to work, career, contemporary relationships, family or friends, which need to be addressed and resolved.

            These are the thoughts or feelings that need to be processed and heard in conscious life. 

             

            2. Being trapped:

            trapped in dream

            The nightmare theme of being trapped can occur in different forms – either you are trapped in a place where chances of escape are thin or you have been trapped in a place from where escape is possible, with a little effort on your part.

            Very likely, a trapped nightmare means that you are facing a conflict situation in your life. It literally means you feel trapped in a life situation from which escape is getting difficult because of your inability to process the means of escape or you find the trapped situation both approachable and avoidable and hence the conflict.

            Ask yourself, are you complying with something which you genuinely don’t want to continue doing?

            Are you going against your deepest desires?

            Seeing oneself physically trapped might reflect the ‘stuckness’ in real life. It can be in varied fields of your life – professional or personal. You might be trapped in an abusive relationship, or in financial debt, lagging behind in academics or stuck at work with no signs of progress.

            Dream On

            Dream On

            Yes! You can achieve your Dreams

            They’ll say “Oh! It’s not as easy as it seems”!

            Follow your heart, not their Whims!

            You will find life presenting you with wondrous Themes,

            Beyond imagination, pleasure to the furthest Extremes!

            A Rude Awakening

            The sleepwalker that I was before

            Dreamed of an idyllic world

            Chimeras added with each snore

            Constructing a meaningful dreamworld

            As I felt some of the Wokens

            Brushed against me, agitated sleep

            Until the will got the dream broken

            Leading to a long… slow… leap

            To open these heavy eyelids

            Seemed like an eternity

            While the society forbids

            Crosscurrent, I wanted honesty

            So I witnessed walls crumble

            Burning houses, burning forests

            All beauty dying with the tumble

            Of the dream, a deserving harvest

            Now I witness the Woken’s view

            Enlightening and overwhelming

            I say goodbye to the sky’s blue

            What a rude awakening

            I Hardened Under The Last Loss

            I Hardened Under The Last Loss

            I hardened under the last loss. it took something human out of me. I used to be so deeply emotional I’d crumble on demand. but now the water has made its exit. of course, I care about the ones around me. I’m just struggling to show it. a wall is getting in the way. I used to dream of being so strong nothing could shake me. now. I am. so strong. that nothing shakes me. and all I dream is to soften.”
