  1. completely understandable - enjoy with your friends and family - love midland .... our house sits on an acre and surrounded by trees more or less ...am working on gardening so i can plant flowers next season
  2. welcome back to canada @Gillian Sanger if you're ever in midland, drop by for some cocoa...would be great to meet....
  3. very interesting...i would love to know some steps and resources where we can cultivate these hearts ... would love to hear your suggestions etc. @Gillian Sanger
  4. Grateful for: Chotu my cat came back home after he got out of his catio - he hadbeen gone since august 18th and returned on his own on august 22nd at 5:05am - after alot of knocking on doors, calling out his name and walking the streets in the neighborhood, posting flyers and posters - well i am so grateful... my husband who helped, was understanding and is the most amazing kind gentle human that could exist - am so grateful to have met him.. the ability to walk for hours searching for chotu - even though the sole of my sneakers fell apart - but stayed together thanks to the tape i used on them. the free online meditation on youtube that allows you to reach out to your lost pet and help guide them back home - i really think it worked, amidst all the tips i followed/did to help him return... food/shelter...
  5. Here is another guided breath meditation we can do to to relax, let go of anxiety, and stave off feeling the heat.
  6. you could try the bhramari pranayam which is the bee breath... when you hum on the exhalation it really helps when the mind is bouncing all over the place, and is very soothing...check it out and see if it helps :)
  7. i think the idea is to do A guided meditation everyday - whether its the same one or different one is really a personal choice or decision ... hope this helps
  8. hahah - sorry i didnt meant to confuse you with a barrage of information...my husband loves the east and wants to travel there (as i do too ofcourse) - especially when its snowing here in canada for 10 out of 12 months (just kidding) but you get what i mean... so my husband and i got married at the arboretum, under the trees, sun and sky- we wore traditional indian clothes but i blended the cultures - so i wore a white salwar kameez with gold chunni (scarf), cuz he likes me in white (as i am very darkskinned) although technically white in hinduism is worn for death/funerals - we were married by an officiant - and my hsuband wore seagreen kurta and jeans. although a lot of my friends wanted to fly here to canada for it - we kept it to strictly immediate family - (so it was small 15 ppl) - i wanted our families to meet and talk and get to know each other. i know i offended many of the extended relatives on my dad's side - but it couldnt be helped ... - we were planning to go back to india and do the fire ceremony and get married the traditional way, which would have included them ...but covid struck so that ended that plan - and we might do it as a renewal of our vows... in a few years from now... thank for being interested ...
  9. Shanta is probably either from kolkatta or from west bengal ...since you mentioned bengal... and yes i love and miss street food - even my husband loves street food - and interestingly enough his system can handle it.. the vendors make india what it is ... abut sadly we are picking up all the garbage from the west like mcdonalds, and malls and losing our colour slowly... alot of people abhor modi and yet he still remains in power ...its an odd irony - for he has destroyed my country and brought in divisiveness - and where indias beauty lay in the fact that a mosque, church, temple and gurudwara would be on the same street - alas ... he fills the country with hatred... its tragic really .. but enough politics ... enjoy your walk,...hope to connect with you in real virtual time some day? perhaps we should schedule a chat session via zoom one of these days? it would be awesome to meet face to face and chat about
  10. exhaling out from the mouth switches us from the central nervous system into the parasympathetic nervous system..i.e. from flight mode to a more relaxed state... plus a friend shared an article recently that exhaling out from the mouth is supposed to help with combating covid19... "The reason is that your nasal cavities produce the molecule nitric oxide, which chemists abbreviate NO, that increases blood flow through the lungs and boosts oxygen levels in the blood. Breathing in through the nose delivers NO directly into the lungs, where it helps fight coronavirus infection by blocking the replication of the coronavirus in the lungs. But many people who exercise or engage in yoga also receive the benefits of inhaling through the nose instead of the mouth. The higher oxygen saturation of the blood can make one feel more refreshed and provides greater endurance." https://www.oregonlive.com/coronavirus/2020/06/the-science-behind-why-this-is-the-safest-way-to-breathe-to-avoid-coronavirus.html

  12. its an interesting story - so i come from a mixed background -mother is italian/american, father is indian - and for years they encouraged me to move to the united states - but i refused ... cuz i love living in the east ... and was very well settled - met a canadian at a yoga ashram, hit it off - did the long distance dating - and he really wanted me to move to canada and be with him...so after discussing it at length - was persuaded to move here, got married ... i still have my apartment in india - but will relinquish it since i cant go back as the borders are sealed ..so am here for a while. but once i can return to the east - i will probably do so... the only complication is that i brought my feral kitten who adopted me - so i cant leave him - he's my baby...the only time my maternal instincts woke up ...lol...thats the story in a nutshell...love got me to move... so cheesy but yeah - i mean my mum left america to live with my dad in india... my brothers wives are irish/american and swedish/american and the swedish/american moved to india to be with my brother and my older brother lives in america with his irish/american wife ...and now there is a canadian in our family ...so we are very mixed and floating all over the map so to speak ...
  13. yes, nature rules in india- i miss my home very much and the unstructured way things are...where in india is your friend from? i have travelled extensively in India - and each place is like a different country, with different language, customs, and cuisines... and yes - i lived in new delhi which also has peacocks in some parts of the city - infact i was teaching at the austral high commission and there were peacocks right out side on the balcony ... i have a picture somewhere... and yes...dogs are all over the streets - one has to be careful of course as they bite sometimes...but i have never had a bad experience and usually feed them biscuits ...and befriend them. i will give the trees a hug for you... take care and be safe....
  14. @Faune you;re welcome...its clear that you take great joy in nature...its so wonderful that you are able to focus on all the amazing things in your life... its refreshing to read your posts as it makes pause and enjoy nature that sometimes gets taken for granted... i am waiting to see a moose and beaver .... that's so exciting... i have seen the cardinals, and blue jays and love the starlings here - but the moose and beaver, are such an integral part of canada -- there's an island in india called ross island - google it sometime - its in the andaman and nicobar region and i spent two and a half months there, visiting as many islands as i could...but ross was beautiful - a day visit, cannot spend the night there - and it has deer and peacocks and peahens living there...i managed to get a picture of a peacock spreading its feathers and dancing on the trail - will try and share it one of these days.. sorry to hear about the wrong house...what makes it wrong? my husband and i are planning to buy a house fout in the boondocks - and looking to buy a few acres - to be more immersed in nature...trees and wildlife...those are the best parts of life...
  15.
