Searching For Love

by Shervin on May 6, 2018

“Your task is not to seek for love but merely to seek & find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”  ~Rumi What are the barriers that Rumi is referring to? Can it be our limiting beliefs, expectations, past hurts and our arrogance? Love like Sun does not go away. It […]

by Shervin on April 22, 2018

How would you feel if you knew everything in your life will be OK, no matter what is happening? What would you do differently if you knew that? Would you be calmer? Smile more? Be more truthful? Have more courage? How a belief and knowing can be so powerful that can change our reaction and how […]

Are They Crazy?

by Shervin on April 8, 2018

Have you wondered why so many mystics welcome grief and hardships? What one gains from welcoming them? Are they crazy? Not so. I think there are two important factors to consider: 1- Practicing surrender Surrender shuts off our mind in picking, choosing and judging and allowing us to experience life.

What are you holding on?

by Shervin on March 26, 2018

When we hold to an emotion by avoiding fully feeling it and do not process it, we lose clarity of our heart, mind and action. You may have seen someone that was hurt by unfairness and they themselves are acting unfairly to others. You may have seen someone who hates being judged and themselves are very judging of others. You […]

The Gatekeeper

by Shervin on January 27, 2018

I had a dialogue and encounter with my gatekeeper that I like to share with you. Perhaps. It may help you get to know your own gatekeeper better. You may ask who the gatekeeper is. Gatekeeper is part of you who wants to protect you, is scared and is in survival mode. Last week, I had […]

by Shervin on January 14, 2018

How can we survive and thrive the chaos around us? We can do it by raising our vibration, by being in the present and by focusing on desired outcomes. Look at the following statements that all maybe true (yet they have low vibrations): I am cold; I should have saved more money; it is Joe’s […]

Resistance to Feel

by Shervin on December 18, 2017

Do you have resistance to doing very simple things such as replying to an email, talking to a stranger, watching your own speech video or asking to be treated properly? I have realized that mostly when we have a resistance, it is avoidance of “negative” feeling such as sadness, anger, rejection, etc. It goes like […]

Chasing A Butterfly

by Shervin on December 3, 2017

I do photography and I am very fortunate in taking pictures of butterflies close up. How do I do it? I do not chase the butterflies. I find a place near flowers, relax and sit without any expectation or thoughts. Then the butterfly appears and lands near me for a picture. If I am tense […]

You are Not Flawed!!!

by Shervin on October 20, 2017

You thoughts and beliefs may be flawed, not you!!! We, all as small children, accept certain thoughts and beliefs. For example, if we heard that our parents were fighting with each other and we head our names, we assumed that we have caused the fight and we were the source of disharmony. This may have […]

Open Your Heart!

by Shervin on October 8, 2017

We have many energy blockages as the result of our unresolved emotions.  The blockages do not allow us to have our heart open completely and experience life fully. Let say if someone was mean to you and you did not let go of feeling of hurt right away. You kept thinking how dare he could […]

Let Go and Be Free

by Shervin on August 13, 2017

We all have heard that to let go and be free. Sometimes we let go when we are tired of holding on and we realize that holding on only is creating more suffering. Letting go does not mean giving up hope. It means acknowledging our current pain and suffering does not help our situation and […]

Loving and connecting with yourself

by Shervin on July 30, 2017

What is one effective way to love and connect with yourself? In my experience, it is acknowledgement of what we feel is the key. It is generally OK to share and express our happiness.  Therefore, I will focus on our repressed emotions which is not cool to share or acknowledge. It is about acknowledging our […]

How to Love Yourself More?

by Shervin on July 17, 2017

Why is that we may love and respect others more than ourselves? Why is it that we are kinder and gentler with others than ourselves? Although typically we are harder on ourselves, this does not answer the above question. Have you met someone who appears to be “perfect” and you do not like them because […]

by Shervin on July 3, 2017

The patient is living with her house-mates, in a secure, big, fancy yellow house. The care-givers are mostly from Africa, kind, tough, passionate and greeting each other with hugs and kisses. Danny, the cat, is keeping calm in the chaotic house as an under-cover healer. The occupants, those who cannot walk, collectively sitting in a room watching sitcoms. Nobody […]

by Shervin on June 5, 2017

Sometimes we want our emotional pain such as grief, betrayal or fear to be taken away by the Universe and we wonder why it is not so. As a result, we may feel disappointed and discouraged. If you have dealt with children, there are times that children need to learn to walk or ride a […]

Prayer

by Shervin on May 8, 2017

What is a prayer? How do you communicate and connect with the Universe?  What language do you use? What makes a prayer more effective? I am contrasting two approaches to praying in this article. Imagine image of someone praying by verbally begging in despair for something with the energy of helpless-ness and lack. Another image […]
