You Are Here

Do you recall the maps in public places that help you find your way? There is usually a circle or an X with the notation: “You are here.” X marks the spot where you are in the “real world.” From there, you navigate the path to your destination. In life, without maps to guide us from birth to death, our course is less certain. We tend to wander at first, gradually gaining momentum and direction, then perhaps pausing at some point to contemplate the big picture. Our minds often wish we had something as simple as a map to direct us on the perfect life journey. We sometimes question where we are going and if we have made a wrong turn, a fatal error in judgment. What we don’t realize is that there are no errors.

Intentional Spirit: DO IT NOW

Many people stop just before the diet really works or right before they finish a project that could lead them to a new sense of accomplishment.
It is too easy at times to walk away and “get by” with just enough at the end of the day rather than asking ourselves, “Did I give this day, this moment, this relationship, this client all I have? Was I totally present in the moment?” I realized this a number of years ago during counseling sessions. I noticed clients talked about every subject in the world and only addressed the real issue during the last five minutes of our time together. What is the tendency within us to delay or put off what we really need to address or confront within ourselves? Life is energy, inertia, and movement. When we delay our story, our story is delayed. When we wait to see what happens, we begin to live in what can happen rather than what is happening.

Where Do Ethics And Spirituality Both Thrive?

Spiritual and metaphysical practitioners and shops have become increasingly easy to find both online and brick and mortar stores.  We can hire a psychic, a coach, buy crystals and essential oils very easily now.  Part of me loves this, but part of me wonders if this is a place where ethics and spirituality can thrive together.

Years ago, I became certified as a life coach.  The certification was not required, but I felt it carried some reference to credibility.  There was nothing riveting offered in the class.  Most of the material seemed like common sense, and my background in nursing certainly helped.  The class was an eye opener; many people with a huge variety of skills sets and backgrounds had the desire to help others.

I also became certified as an Angel reader.  The certification is a little cringy, but again, I felt it showed some intention of training.  What I now offer clients is from years of experience and my ability to connect with the other side.  This ultimately is what makes psychics and mediums skillful.

There is no regulation on psychics, mediums, energy workers, or coaches.   I’m not saying that there should be formal guidance, but I do believe ethics and talent should play a significant role in the longevity and success of all practitioners.

Okay, Bring on the Crisis

Somehow in this world of crisis, all people want to talk about is crisis. We are all forever transformed as a result of the crisis we have gone through. I am sharing this with you because nobody would intentionally welcome a crisis in their lives. Nobody would intentionally say “Okay, bring on the crisis.” 

But I have to tell you there is such a gift available to all of us right now, through the pandemic, with everything we are going through in the world . . . it’s such a blessing. In the welcoming of a crisis, it puts you in the redefinition of yourself.

I like who I am now, especially after how life reduced me to my knees. I like this version of me. As I get older, I appreciate this version of being Panache Desai more and more. And there is an amazing freedom that comes along with having navigated my way through a crisis. Things aren’t such a big deal anymore. Having lived through a hurricane, and a child who almost died, and helping my wife with her health issues, I realize we are so blessed to have gone through these things.

Living with the Unknown

Nothing is definitively known, ever. That’s why Native Americans, in their timeless wisdom, have called life the “Great Mystery.” No matter what scientists do to try to break the code—send vehicles to Mars, create life in a test tube, photograph black holes in space—the puzzle of human existence and life and death is never really solved. Any “knowledge” we come to as a species is a shifting illusion that changes with the years and with those who are “knowing.” That’s the realm of science and the mind—and belief systems.

Silencing The Monkey Mind!

In today’s world, we are exposed to more stimulation and mental input than our systems are designed to handle. Between social media and the constant news stream of suffering and turmoil, it can feel confusing to know where to place our attention. It’s especially difficult for people who want to help but end up feeling helpless. 

Reminders of the pandemic, environmental emergencies, politics, and devastating world events pile on to our generally full and busy lives –  it’s no wonder so many of us are struggling with anxiety and overwhelm! Fight – Flight – Freeze seems to be on all the time and it’s accompanied by an autopilot stream of chattering thoughts and ideas limited to searching for potential threats. 

None of this is going away any time soon, so we need to learn strategies that will help us become more resilient and able to manage our inner lives without bypassing what is going on in the world. One way to help manage the inner anxiety loop is to learn how to experience a sense of inner peace, groundedness, and calm. You can learn how to reclaim your mental spaciousness by quieting the “monkey mind!” 

But in a world that not only overstimulates us, but that often encourages us to rely primarily on our minds over our other senses and ways of knowing, it can often feel impossible to reach a state of true inner calm and peacefulness – especially when challenges are beckoning for solutions. That said, we all need to take breaks to put our oxygen masks on in order to manage at the very least. 

In order to relieve the stress of your daily life by keeping a calm mind, you can learn practices that help you come back to your center and release your unwanted thoughts when they feel like they’re running the show. 

Why is it important to have a calm mind?

Intentional Spirit: GOOD INTENTIONS, BEING INTENTIONAL, & RESOLUTIONS

It is a very common practice at the beginning of each year for individuals to create a To Do list to be accomplished within the course of that particular year.


And what is most interesting is at the time, these lists are well-intentioned. I have arrived at a place in my own life where I realize there is a big difference between intentions and being intentional. Why is it that so many people write down a list and yet give up on these intentions in only a few weeks?

To me, intentions are based on the externals of life—the unexpected, the change which wasn’t planned, the weather, or a change in finances or relationships. You can hear a person clearly state, “Well, I meant well. However, now I must wait until ‘this situation’ clears up before I move forward.” People who create such an intention are stopped and stuck in the illusion of waiting. An intentional person—as opposed to someone who just creates a list of intentions—draws energetically from an internal and not an external source. An intentionally spirited person draws from an internal wellspring and listens to inner guidance with the ability to focus on the commitment made and prioritize the demands involved in completing a task or promise made to oneself.

Life Is Responding To What’s Happening

As you evolve, you stop valuing all the stuff that doesn’t matter anymore and you start valuing the stuff that does. It’s how you feel everyday that matters. Do you want to keep revisiting your past thinking that revisiting your past is going to make a difference? It isn’t. 

How do you want to enjoy and make the best of your time? For me, time is a depreciating asset. It’s the only thing that has any value. I don’t have any ambition, motivation or drive and I’m so happy. Primarily, because I’m not afraid anymore.

Somebody who is extraordinarily driven is extraordinarily scared, insecure, and incomplete. They still think there is something outside of them that they have to accomplish or they have to prove something. Sadly, no matter how much this person accumulates or accomplishes, they will never be enough for them because they don’t know who they are or why they are here.

Go Slow In Order To Go Fast

There is a power when you dare to go slow.



Most often when you reflect on your life, you will realize that life has a way of working itself out. Often though, when we don't get what we want, we start pushing harder. Realize that in that moment, from our current level of consciousness, we're not always able to see the infinite grace and possibilities of how life is unfolding. Listen to this episode and learn how being still, going slow and listening to your internal guidance will move you to even greater heights and possibilities.

Harness the Subconscious Mind to Create a Desired Reality

We very often hear a voice telling us that life is a miracle. We keep wondering in our own minds how is that statement true, is it actually a reality we need to embrace.  

I would like to say that our every thought is a miracle maker. It is our own subconscious mind that is the creator of our reality. The action is actually happening in our thoughts and the reaction is in our response,  which is actually a response to our subconscious mind. So it is important to think wisely,  and think in terms of the reality we desire to manifest. As our mind will through our subconscious mind create a reality, closest to the mental pattern we are feeding deep within the subconscious mind. 


KNOW WHAT YOU WANT

The most important factor in life is knowing what you want. Our subconscious mind has a storage which is full of desires and wants according to our conscious mind perception, imagination and feelings. It is the conviction of the conscious mind  which is transferred onto the subconscious self.  This converts the idea into a reality. 

USE IMAGINATION
Use your imagination as a perceived reality, visualize a state of freedom. Try finding ways of solving a problem, and impose that way on your subconscious. The subconscious will respond to the thought. 

CHILDLIKE FAITH
Put away your problem solving skills. Just have a belief that whatever you desire will happen. Believe in miracles. Simple thought attracts instant and pure reaction. 

DISCIPLINED IMAGINATION
As it is said in the bible "Whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive" To believe is to accept something as true. Imagination is the most powerful faculty you are gifted with, you are absolutely whatsoever you imagine yourself to be. 

INNER GUIDANCE
This is an inner sense of touch. You know when it is a hunch. Trust these vibes, they will prove to you that they are correct. 

BE SURE OF YOURSELF
Doubts and hesitations weaken prayers.  Statements such as "I hope it works" or "I wish I get this" will set a negative tone. We attract vibrations on the frequency of our thoughts, a doubting thought creates a lower frequency. 

LIVE IN COMPLETE CONVICTION
Pass the idea you want created to your subconscious mind from the conscious mind. Give yourself over to its power, then relax with the idea. Through the action and conviction, you will actually impregnate your subconscious mind. This helps kinetic energy to take over and bring it to realization in concrete form. 

Be careful of your thoughts. When desire and imagination  are in conflict, then imagination wins over and produces negative results for you. If you suggest to your mind "I will use my will power to overcome failure," you are actually reinforcing the negative idea. Thinking continuously over the thought could dominate the subconscious, then when you try to alter it in your conscious, it overpowers  the conscious mind, the negative persists and you are not allowed by your mind, to create the desired reality. 

HARMONIOUS UNION
Your prayers are answered when there is no conflict. We cannot imagine opposition. Believe only in the power of creation, you can create what you want by focusing on it completely. By using mental will power you pre-suppose opposition and therefore create it. 

Imagine the reality of fulfilled desire and feel the thrill of accomplishment. 

SLEEPTIME VALUE
This is the best time to penetrate your thoughts into mental space. There is heightened awareness while sleeping and negative thoughts and imagery neutralize your desire. 
When you neutralize and imagine the thrill of the accomplishment,  the subconscious brings the realization of desire. 
Use affirmations to harness the subconscious mind to create a desired reality. 


Intentional Spirit: A DREAM IS MEANT TO BE REALIZED

Dreams and visions are a beautiful part of this life. The emerging self is always seeking to accept the now moment, while at the same time welcoming the mystery around the corner.


I realized a few years ago the statement “I am waiting on my dreams to come true” was not a true metaphysical and proactive statement for me. This statement put the outcome on something or someone else outside of my own power and control. I have since learned to declare, “My dreams are waiting for me to come true.”

I am claiming my role as co-creator in realizing my dreams by deepening my own self-awareness and development in what I want to become in this future dream.

As I hold the space for my dreams to become realized, I continue to grow my consciousness, so when the dream appears I will be ready. Harry Potter was told, “Do not keep your focus on the realization of your dream, otherwise, you will miss your life.”

How To Deal With Grief

The degree to which we don't allow ourselves to feel grief is also the degree to which we limit our heart's capacity to feel joy, bliss and happiness.

Listen to this episode and learn the importance and the art of grieving where you acknowledge your pain and your grief to help you come through the other side in a more expanded space, with more joy, bliss and fulfillment.

Meet Every Moment Awake to a Limitless Life

It’s safe to say that most us wrestle with some kind of frustration on a daily basis. This kind of dissatisfaction can be with ourselves, over what we can or can’t get done—or with others, who may deny us our wish or otherwise disappoint our expectations. Accordingly, we can feel as though we are blocked, incapable, unable, not strong or wise enough to move ahead as we would.

The more we feel the unwanted presence of this limitation—accompanied as it always is by a host of painful dark thoughts and emotions—the more our attention is diverted to wrestle with them. Without seeing it, our struggle is no longer with wanting to understand the actual cause of our situation, but is now with these negative states that we don’t want. Feeling resentment over what we regret about ourselves only makes sense to the mind that believes soaking in a mud bath is the best way to get clean!

Intentional Spirit: THE UNIQUE PATH OF BEING

The road less traveled is not paved with good intentions. It’s walked by Intentional Spirits.


The Intentional Spirit encompasses the expansiveness of the West because we often find ourselves here when we’re in the middle of something—midlife, mid year, a project, a night, or a crisis. It feels like we’re lost in a desert without water, wondering where we went wrong. How did we get here?
 
Instead of looking back to where we began or forward to where we hoped to be, we know there is another way. The Intentional Spirit looks inward at the patterns we carry and— like the trees in autumn shedding leaves—we too let go, surrender, and release things limiting beliefs, persons, places, etc). All the rules we thought we needed are gone. In this time of introspection and healing,  we begin to develop our own principles and values or successful living.

Intentional Spirit: BEING PRO-ACTIVE IN A CHANGING WORLD

Whoopi Goldberg, in the film Sister Act 2, said repeatedly,
“If you want to go somewhere and you want to be somebody, you’ve got to stop and pay attention.”

An intentional person is often sitting in a place of saying, “Is this reactive or proactive? If I respond this way in a text, email, social media, or in personal conversation, would I want this to be my response three or four days from now? Would I want to see my response months from now and know it came from me?”

For every opportunity which presents itself, as Intentional Spirits we are required to assess how we are showing up to ourselves and to others. Often, as a challenge arises that feels similar to an occurrence in the past, we have a tendency to adversely affect our self-esteem by saying, “I thought I was done with this.

Why am I here again?”

A Unified Field of Potential

Anytime you get stressed out and overwhelmed and you wonder how it’s going to work out and how life is going to unfold, it’s because you’ve forgotten you are God. When you recognize this is not who you are and you make a shift in yourself, all of the obstacles fall away. 

When you actually stop dividing up your energy, meaning you stop creating your energy into a form and you allow yourself to stay in wholeness, you operate as the totality of your unified field. God has taken infinite forms. The formless has taken infinite forms. And, through those infinite forms it is waking up to itself.

Sacred Warrior: IS PRAYER BEING STATED OR BEING HEARD?

Our beliefs and practices regarding prayer—like so many important things—change many times throughout the course of our lives.

When I reflect upon my journey of prayer, I am so grateful to have learned in metaphysics a clear way to affirm, invoke, declare, and know—leaving the teenager way of praying behind me. Being raised Southern Baptist, all prayers up to that point were begging, pleading, and making bargains to a God I wasn’t even convinced was interested in me. The teachings I attained from Science of Mind transformed my way of begging prayer into using spiritual affirmative treatments instead. In Unity and throughout New Thought, we practice prayer in the affirmative rather from a place of pleading.

This shift equipped me with an incredible tool of creating modern day miracles in my life.

What's The Deal About Being Psychic?

As a boy, I was the one who saw things differently; I was the one who felt and heard things that others didn’t seem to notice; and I was never really understood. As I got older, I began to realize that I wasn’t that different after all—in fact, there were others like me!  Some chose to speak up, while others tried to hide it and push it away in a vain attempt to be normal. But being psychic or intuitive is normal. It’s something that we’re all born with to assist us while we’re here on this planet.

So, what’s the deal about being psychic and what does it really mean? Put simply, as spiritual beings, we are able to access, receive and transmit information that reaches beyond our physical body and our natural five senses.

Throughout history, cultures all over the world have honored their spiritual principles and maintained a deep belief that human beings consist of more than just physical bodies. Traditions were created with rituals (such as chanting, dancing and meditation) that are still used to this day to remain connected to Spirit and to fully utilize spiritual abilities.
