This month we would like to wish you a Happy Diwali! Diwali is the Indian new year and is known as the festival of lights. There are many historical stories related to this festival which indicate the triumph of light over darkness. The stories are placed on battlefields, which symbolize the battleground that is within each and every one of us as we continue to grow through the challenges of life.

Our philosophy ties in beautifully with this message. We will all go through periods of darkness in our human experience as it is an inevitable part of live. If we can accept this as just an experience of life, we will grow exponentially and see the light at the end of every challenge.

This month we encourage you to pick one grudge you are ready to let go of from the past. Accept that you are holding onto the situation and emotion (anger, guilt, frustration etc), and remind yourself that the situation is now ‘over’! Once you consciously admit that it’s only you that is keeping the issue alive, then without judgement release the toxic emotions through breath work, exercise or conscious expression. When the toxic emotion is released, a fresh perspective will be available which is the light of wisdom.

Our Diwali wish for all of us is that we continue to consciously love and accept more parts of us, move through our challenges with courage and freedom, see more clearly that we have a choice at every point.

Consciously yours,
Sonia Samtani
