How #chakras aid/ disrupt your #relationships

Seven Chakras
Seven Chakras


People aware of chakras in the human body would have heard the concept of 7 Chakras and how they play a role in a human’s life state.

Will delve upon the concept of chakras and how do they interfere with the relationships in one’s life.

A person has both manhood and womanhood present in them, thus their basic nature might change from time to time. This happens if both the man and the woman inside you is not at peace. So, the first step to developing any relationship is to foster the harmony within yourself.

The second interface starts when there is another person in front of us.  The man and woman have a different level of chakra awakening that is dominant inside them. Though in the current times with intermingling roles and responsibilities that men and women play, their dominant character also changes. It disbalances the basic tendencies and thus our relationships. Life states above, first we need to harmonize our own self, create the balance between the man and the woman that resides in us and then look for a person who belongs to either same or a higher chakra.

Fose who have studied Maslow’s hierarchy of needs will be able to relate to it quickly.

  • The man rests in the mooladhar or survival chakra –  The Survival or Mooladhar is also the root chakra. It just talks about survival and thus very primitive and basic needs of a person.
  • The woman stays in swathisthan chakra or pleasure chakra – Women as per primitive values was believed that the woman will control the house, feeding the house was man’s responsibility. Thus having basic needs met, she automatically goes to one level up. Though today both men and women are bread earners and the levels for each person may change.
  • Manipura or Solar plexus –  Now the thing is for the woman to respect the man, the man has to go above basic 2 chakra’s and reside in the solar plexus. Where he is earning and making an effort not just to sustain to create a name in society.

Now as we go up to the other chakras the awakening and level of intellect for each person also keeps on increasing. The basic start of a relationship has to be within the folds of love and respect. Men have to work hard to get women’s respect and be accepted as a rightful partner.

The #struggle within

This I found in my own papers.. written over a decade ago, I was wondering I always thought the same… So here it is…


I see myself and I see an ocean

In this five foot body, I feel tremors of the universe

 I seek light where darkness surrounds

In the endless  universe, a spec of my existence moves like a wispy feather

The world inside me lives and deals with a havoc each day

When my brain fumbles and mind boggles

It is from there that I want to move ahead to see the things the destination beholds

In the other side of it.. The unknown … the unrevealed


I want to see what’s beyond my sight

I want to know what’s hidden from my eyes

I want to relieve the pain of mother earth

I want to lay a path of love


The fire within me alludes with a smile

The swot within I never let it rise

The fights within are a commotion

Trying to search the end and m the solution

The strength of soul rekindles with a sense of exultation


Every time it hurts m a better person

There’s so much to do with this little time

The dreams are my entourage, my only hopes, and aspirations


I try each day to fight that good fight

To stretch myself so that my dreams are realized

I want a life of truth and devotion

To live just not for myself but for others as well

I hope I can take away the pain and cries of people struggling to have a bread each day


May there be enough for everyone around

May there be peace within and without

You were not made to hide behind a shadow

“When we do the best we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another.”

Hellen Keller


Looking in and around, I saw these women struggling and suffering at the hand of destiny if I may say that or at the hands of people around them. I chanting with all my heart to know, how to end that suffering in all our lives.

While chanting I had this thought. That ghonzon doesn’t want our life to be hidden behind a husband or a married label. Our lives have a mission of their own and we have to work to shine and make our own mark

What grief thus should we ever have to have been given the opportunity to be so strong and shine so brilliantly; thereby giving hopes to others who may be suffering

We were not made to hide behind a shadow but leave our own trace

We were not made to get lost in the dark but shine like a thousand suns

We were not made to use someone’s name or fame but to create our own

We were not made to lie still, but fight fierce battles

We were not made to be alone, but live with pride raising more capable souls with us

We were made to live truly and never hide behind any shadows

Take a take pledge for all you love;  you will not let them sulk, but always pull up every time they fall.

I was looking at the most powerful women list in Forbes and realised the potential women have that is to be tapped to make them shine and never let them hide behind shadows.

The #Nomad self

The Nomad self; turns to people and places looking for its home abode

It doesn’t rest in beds or feel ease in bunkers

It’s not a progeny of someone, neither an accomplice or a mate

There are places it wants to fly to and be grounded again with the rain

It loves the journey more than it loves to be on the road

#Nomad #NaliniDutta #Fromtheheart


The Nomad self; turns to people and places looking for a recourse

There is no peace in routine and no love in the mundane

There is a heart screeching and shrieking with uproar

It wanders to find love, lost in those once merry souls

The Nomad self; turns to people and places discovering where it belongs

There is mission in its heart and a song of its wonted resort

It wants to breathe in life and give out the love it deserves

It listens and creates music with waves touching the shore

The Nomad self; turns to people and places figuring out its way home

There’s a rambling soul, put to rest only through its own sojourns

Its looks for the sunshine but becomes its own light post

     It lives neither in the sky nor on the road

It lives in the feeling of being content within its wandering 5 feet abode

 The Nomad self; turns to the mirror making peace with its own soul!

#Nomad #Life #fromtheheart

Open all nodes and feel free! #womensday

Open all nodes, one by one!

For the nodes in your heart, open them with concision; one by one

Let the nodes dissolve and melt away without leaving stains

Open all nodes, one by one!

Brighten the spots, where those shadows lurked

Don’t be scared of the shadows, face them and see them fade; one by one

Open all nodes, one by one !

Cut them off, those intertwining cords that tied your veins and made you breathless

Make changes in the present or don’t,but make peace with your  past, one by one

Open all nodes, one by one!

For the longest time, you dint realise your worth

Stand up and acclaim what is rightfully yours, one by one

Open all nodes, one by one!

People thought you need crutches to walk

Break all crutches and walk ahead, one step at a time; one by one

One all nodes, one by one!

Enjoy the fun and excitement of T20 through Express painting by #BergerXP



Express Painting  Setup

The wish to attend an event as a blogger had been there for long, and here I saw the opportunity to attend the Berger Paint event happening in Delhi. I had seen pictures of BergerXP events in other cities, showing bloggers painting and thus got interested. I requested for the invite, and when I got the invite for the event I was really looking forward to it, but still did not expect it would be so much fun. So, here’s my experience of my  first event as an #Indiblogger.

Painting is the worst of the jobs in regards to your house second only to construction hues. Berger paints is trying to break these perceptions through their Express Painting designed with innovative and advanced Home Painting Tools.

Be a child again!

Meeting new blogger friends is awesome, Anoop from Indiblogger made it even easier through the first ice breaking session, we were given 5 slips with information about other blogs and we had figure out whose blogs the slips belonged to. Followed by this was the task of using the sand paper to clean a piece of cardboard given to us as a team.  We started to sand the cardboard, don’t know about the time or how smooth did we make it, but it was super fun. 


We did try out hands at painting as well. We painted an image of “Go Green” and created a lot of mess with colours on our table. My hands are visible at the bottom of the painting to take a pledge on behalf of the entire team. We did not win the competition :(, but still playing with colours was exciting as the heading says” Be a child again”. Indiblogger ensured we became children and enjoyed all the activities thoroughly.

via Top 10 Celebs at Red Carpet looks at #OSCARS 2017, you don’t want to miss! — Let Venus Rule!

#Courage is not about standing up for others but your ownself as well! 

#Forever I felt I had to belong to you, as you would to me! #Love

For if, love was all one needs, wouldn’t you know how it feels

Forever I felt I had to belong to you, as you would to me

Forever I felt I will live on in your dreams

Forever I felt you would sense what I felt

Forever I felt you would feel the same way as I did

#Forever #Love
#Forever #Love

But, Forever,  has been a thought just a fancy of the brain

Forever is never, but now is forever, if lived to the fullest

So live now with me each moment; before we lose time to create beauty and love

The purpose was to love and share what we felt

You came along to show me how it felt

It must have been some yearning of thousand odd years that got soothed by every word you said!
