It was only for few months that I had a new home in a resort, right next to Nagarhole national park. Looking back I’m happy I got the opportunity to explore wildlife every single day at Kabini.
I could not have got such an opportunity if I hadn’t believed in power of subconscious mind and manifesting life. I am ever grateful for having faith in me to set up Home-Stay resort . It was undoubtedly challenging and demanding job. It was new to me, I had never worked in hospitality industry before.
I went out to explore the nature, got out of my comfort zone, this helped me immensely in shaping up myself.
In overall, I am humbled that I got to learn and explore the flora and fauna of western ghats in India. Within this short duration, I met lot of interesting guests and had experiences of a life time. I can speak for volumes about the local community, the nature, wilderness, birds, my two Labrador retriever puppies, the staff, traveling to local places, all in all memories to cherish for rest of my life.
I now believe abundance in life. You get abundant love, happiness, respect when we open your arms and accept life without resistance.

It is after 2 years I went to back to Kabini and want to circle back to this post. Nothing had changed there but I on the other hand was a totally different person! I met all those who worked for me in 2 day trip. I amazingly looked at the same place with a lot more clarity which wasn’t visible then. Peace .
An unexpected trip to Sri Lanka but nevertheless it was worth the visit. We planned for 3 days tour around Sri Lanka and stay in Colombo city over the weekend for obvious reasons.
The plan is to take a flight from Chennai to Colombo instead of flying out from Bangalore International airport because the fair is almost double from BLR TO COL than MDD to CMB. (6,000/INR for a round trip).
3 day trip was from Colombo to Habarana (elephant destination – National Park) to epic Sigiriya cave to Kandy mountains in central province and finally back to Colombo for beautiful scenic Mt. Lavinia Hotel . We stayed at the Chaaya Village properties at Habarana (Cottage) and also in Kandy.
I remember the most is the amount of elephants that we were able to spot at the National park safari and elephant rides. One of the male elephant gave our jeep a chase to shove us off to clear the infant and mother crossing the road. From Habarana to Sigiriya along the way you will find nice crafts shops, Buddhist temples and Kandy hills.
Kandy is last capital of ancient kings and lies in the midst of hills in central province of Srilanka. The women here are very beautiful and wear Kandy saree shown below .
It’s not advisable to take a 3 day trip with just one day in each destination instead take a 3-4 days stay in each property to relax and enjoy the stay thoroughly.
We stopped at the Spice garden for variety of spice plants that is grown in Srilanka like clove, Aloe Vera, Cinnamon, Vanilla, Hirassa, Nutmeg, Rubber, Pineapple and many other herbs. We also stopped at many of the Gems factories that show how to extract and identify minerals of different kinds like Sapphires, emeralds, rubies, topaz, garnets and diamonds.
Our final destination was back in Colombo at the famous Mt Lavinia Hotel. This property is right behind ocean which has private beach and you will get an unforgettable view of sunset and clean water beach. It is one of the best British colonial heritage hotel (Governors). It is also known for weddings for the beautiful locations it has for photographs of bride and groom.
Last but not least of my trip is the galle road and Colombo city for which you should only be there to experience yourself. After the civil war b/w LTTE and Srilanka army which lasted for 30 years there is still a lot of army men guarding the Colombo roads. The country is sure to improve in leaps and bounds in coming years.
With the Srilanka rupee value so low it is perfect weekend getaway to visit Colombo.
Take few minutes to read, you might benefit from this post.
I am at the very beginning stage of exploring spiritual benefits. If you have a slightest feeling that you are avoiding below listed negative thoughts, then stop to learn a way to deal with them.
- Anxiety of waiting, may be anything for bus or a phone call!
- Fear to lose someone close/job
- Stress at work
- Fear of rejection
There are many more that could be haunting you! but I believe it is these, that are predominant in our generation.
This is my an attempt to help anybody unable to cope up with the situation.
We fail to seek help in our daily hectic lives so its best to invest on books.You can pick up spiritual books even though at this point you aren’t sure if its going to help your or not? Like many things in life until we experience we hardly know the depth of it. There are several different ways we handle a stress, anxiety and fear situation but spiritualism gives totally different approach and dimension to deal with the problems.
There are many Authors you can choose to read for the financial problems( inflation ) , job insecurity or marital problems etc.

Most of the books do talk about surrendering yourSELF to situation and embrace it, without showing resistance. Not surrender to the problem but to accept the fact that you are in troubled situation. Then onwards your mind will immediately start thinking towards improving and not cause any more disturbance.
By being completely in present i.e. Live Life NOW there is less stress for at least that hour or minute you are focusing your thoughts however controlling manipulative mind is not a easy task, as mind’s always been controlling most of us . If you practice, it is possible to control thoughts that come in to our mind. Please try to watch your anger, frustration there would be particular pattern to which we are prone to..by carefully watching your mind thoughts and being aware of your mind talks half the battle will be won.
I have tried to explain about my spiritual experience ! I will constantly improvise my posts so visit back …this is my first version published with a lot of time constraints. I am also a reluctant writer but I have got the patience and mind to write only to SHARE to world what ever little I have learned in my own way.
