See ya!

August 19, 2006

The purpose of this blog just doesn’t excite me any more. I’m taking some time out and contemplating renewal. I don’t want to feel forced to blog and not provide valuable content. It’s frustrating when you want to write, but don’t know what to write. I don’t call it “writer’s block” or anything like that, I just know that I’m not meant to write anything now. So I’m taking a break, and I may post here again in the future. For now, I wish you well and I hope the existing content keeps you company.

If you wish to follow another of my blog, check it out:

Holiday 2006 – The REAL Manifestation!

July 9, 2006

A while back I wrote about how I was manifesting the chance to visit exotic island and clear beaches, something that is very close to my heart. It has now manifested in my life, and today is the start of a beautiful thirty one days away from home. I’m leaving home now, 7am, and heading to London’s Heathrow Airport with my family. We’re jetting off to Malaysia, then Bali and then Thailand for a month of pure bliss. I’m so excited!

Over the month, I’ll be blogging about my experiences when I get a chance. I’m not taking my laptop so if the hotel PC’s have a way for me to get some pictures on the net, I’ll get some images for you as well. I’ll also be available at the Inner Rhythm Community Forums. Feel free to check out all the conversations that go on there, and keep in touch.


Your Inner Critic

July 8, 2006

Do you have an inner critic? Someone or something that speaks inside of you and is trying to get you to do the opposite of what you really want? Absolutely. We all have this side to us, this inner voice or spirit that is telling us to do something different, but what does it all mean, is it good to acknowledge it, and how can we coach the critic?

My belief is that the inner critic is good and bad. For the individual who likes to connect with their spirit, and get into spirit, or what Dr Wayne Dyer call’s “Inspiration”, I don’t think that the inner critic is a good resource. In fact, when you’re in spirit, the inner critic will have no force over you as your spirit guides you further, and your ego, or the act of “edging god out” is no longer there.

For the individual that is pushed by extrinsic motivation, or external motivation, such as gaining monetary rewards for completing some work, or achieving a medal for running a race, there is always an inner critic present. If the individual isn’t strong enough, the inner critic will override their thoughts and force the individual to do what it thinks, even though it may not be the most comfortable path. This individual has no use in trying to talk the inner critic out of what he/she is saying. So, then the question is, how can you learn to use the inner critic to your advantage?

Here are my few steps to really coaching the critic…

First understand that it is the inner critic that is actually speaking, it is these inner gremlins trying to get the better of you, nothing else. Acknowledging this is the first step, and at times the most important step.

Understand that the inner critic really wants you to do well and succeed, it’s method or path is just somewhat different to yours. From the beginning, it has taken the learning from our parents, teachers and upbringers who easily feel they know what they want.

Next, understand that the inner critic tries to help you by wanting you to do what YOU want and remain easily in your comfort zone. But let’s face it, if you don’t have challenges and extend your comfort zone, life can get really boring, so the inner critic can crop up and pushes you to do something you wouldn’t, thus taking you out of your comfort zone. As humans, we naturally want to avoid any feeling of pain so we begin to get anxious with this inner critic around.

The problem is that the inner critic doesn’t know when to stop. It will continue until it grows out of control. So this becomes the time, you’ve got to take it out and put it in front of you so you can control it.

To do this, it is important to note when you are speaking to yourself and when the inner critic is speaking to you. One way to do this is to get finer about it’s details. Is it a male or female voice? Is it the voice of someone you know or not? If yes, who? What is the voice tonality like? Where in your body can you hear the inner critic speak from?

Then step back, and observe the critic speak. Notice that the critic is speaking and you have no association with it. The inner critic is trying to control your life, but when you observe it from an outside point, you can see how silly it all looks. Even laugh if you need too. For the next week, be consciously aware of when the inner critic is speaking and note down everything. Also notice when it gets stronger (maybe because you don’t follow its instructions). Does it also get stronger at a certain point dependant on your emotional state? Does it get stronger when you’re tired? Hungry? Bored? Sleepy?

Draw your inner critic. Get creative! This helps externalise it and keeps it separate from you. Remember, YOU want to live your life. You don’t want the inner critic to control it. Do what you need to do in order to ensure that it is a separate entity from you, and when it gets out of control, who are you to follow someone else’s way of life for you?

Go even further and question the inner critic. Understand the deeper concerns of the critic and provide feedback and guidance. Develop a positive attitude and good rapport with the critic. Write a dialogue :-)

Ultimately, the inner critic is good to a certain point. Without it, a person who lives on external motivation may not grow. However, when the inner critic is going out of hand, it’s up to you to really change gear and take command of the vehicle, your body.

    Energy Vampires

    July 2, 2006

    My good friend, Jon Gordon is America’s Number 1 Energy Coach. Jon travels America, delivering seminars in public and corporate situations. He is also the author of two best-selling books, his latest “The 10 Minute Energy Solution” released in January 2006. Please check him out at www.JonGordon.com

    Jon talks a lot about Energy Vampires, things that suck and drain energy out of you and his role is to help you find ways to restore that energy within yourself. It is with energy that you will be able to move forward to achieve the desires you wish. And it is through Jon that I have mastered the art of creating energy within me so I am at peak at all times in order to create more effeciency in my life.

    Energy Vampires can be in the form of lack of sleep, poor eating habits, Starbucks coffee, drugs and excessive alcohol, lack conditioning, media negativity, wrong peer group and much more. Make a list of what energy vampires are currently in your life, and work to get rid of them one by one. You’ll feel much more energetic, I guarantee that.

    Things such as giving up Starbucks coffee, poor eating habits, drugs and alcohol and TV are more easier than dealing with your peer group. Many of us have friends and family who are negative and depressed. We feel obliged to stick with them through their “tough” times, not consciously knowing the effect it has on us. And we don’t just want to leave them in the lurch too.

    It is important that when you are surrounded by such negative people, or people who just bring you down, you stay positive. It is no use if you are negative too. And it is also no use if you can’t stay strong and positive. The ultimate result is that you’ll also be drained, tired and stressed if you can’t handle it. As a positive person, you’re radiating energy and will give the other person an emotional lift from their negativity. This is you facing your energy vampires right in the face.

    Other things I’d recommend you are do: exercise for a few moments each day, surround yourself with people who are going in the same direction as you are. A good peer group will get you on the road to success automatically. Eat healthily. Give people gifts. Give up the coffee, and try some green tea. Read my post about that here. Surround yourself with books and audio tapes on inspiration, motivation and personal development.

    When surfing the web, I come across many newsletters. I also subscribe to them, but unsubscribe within a few weeks because I don’t see any value for me in those moments. There’s one that I highly recommend though. Jon Gordon’s Energy Tip is written and sent out every single Monday. I always look out for it because of the straight forward value that he provides to my life. Every newsletter I have read so far has been instrumental in creating some sort of action within me. It’s free, and I urge you to sign up. Check out his website, www.jongordon.com/newsletter.html


    My pH Miracle

    June 26, 2006

    Once in a while, each person takes drastic measures to produce drastic results. This last week was my turn. Last weekend, 17th and 18th June, I attended Warren Borsje's Millionaire Bootcamp in London to listen to many speakers from around the world share their cutting edge strategies to an audience of 700 or so people.

    Like in many conferences, there are stall's outside the main room where during breaks you can check out what's being offered. One of them that caught my eye was the stall offering a free "one minute body fat test"

    As a generally skinny person, I thought my body fat percentage would be incredibly low. I looked normal, and fit enough. The result though was extraordinarly surprising to me. According to my age, a normal person's body fat percentage should be 8% – 18%. I was in the obese column, at 36.1%. It was shocking. I even spent the next few hours wondering what the hell is wrong with me. I missed out listening to one of the speakers.

    I made a commitment in those moments, to give myself just seven days to change my health around. I made a choice to do this, nobody apart from myself forced me to do this. I had to do it to show myself that I am not obese anymore and never want to be. By the way, for those of you reading this and wondering how I can be skinng and come under the category of "obese", let me introduce you to Dr Robert O Young.

    Dr Young is a pioneer in scientific research and shows that there is just one disease and one cure. Every disease is caused by one thing, the over-acidification of the body. As you take in too much acid, you're body needs to find a way to store it otherwise you're stomach and digestive processes will not function. To do this, your body takes the acid and stores it as fat cells, which increases your overall body fat percentage. For some people, this can be seen externally, and for others, like myself, it's an internal thing. Please read about Dr Young here: www.phmiracleliving.com

    The one cure that is present is re-alkalisation of your body to reach optimum health and to create the right pH balance in your body for the right functions. Since last Sunday, I took on a highly alkaline diet to try and meet my goal of being in the "normal" category. At some times, I felt ill but that was just because my body was getting rid and flushing out the unwanted acid by balancing the body's pH levels.

    Here's what happened…

    On Friday, I met up with Carol (the lady who did the test) and I asked her to do the test again. It showed that my rigorous work had paid off, my body fat percentage… (wait for it!)… was down all the way to 19%…

    That was an incredibly proud and breakthrough moment for me. I took myself from a high 39.1% to 19% in just six days. It can be done. It's a choice to make. And it'll only work if you have the right beliefs. It's now up to me to balance my diet and keep it in the normal body fat percentage.

    What is the one thing you've always wanted to change in your life and haven't done it? Why haven't you done it? What can you do today, however big or small, to make that change? Will you use my story to inspire you?


    What’s happening in Kavit’s world!

    June 18, 2006

    Hey folks! I've been out of touch from here since the 2nd, and for me, it seems a hell of a long time. I've just spent the last two days at Warren Borsje's New World Education Millionaire Bootcamp in London, and it's been absolutely eye-opening, even for me in the wealth speaking industry. Check out the line up of speakers I experienced: Warren Borsje, Andy Harrington, Mark Anastasi, Jenny Armato, Jamie McIntyre, Nik Halik, Jarl Moe and Rick Otton! I highly recommend you put your bum on one of their seminar seats – you'll give yourself the gift of real education.

    Also, I've been busy with several speaking opportunities. I've done a lot of networking dinner appearances talking about my work and seminars, and I have a seminar next Saturday so I'm just getting that underway in my head!

    I'm also getting ready for my holiday in the Far East so with a family of five, a little bit of planning needs to go into that to ensure everyone's accomodated for. If you've ever been on a family holiday, you know what I mean!

    And I've just taken on another employee in the company, and with that comes a lot of training as you can imagine. Time taken up there again.

    I'm not going to complain I don't have enough hours in the day, 'coz I do! It's just my body's taking its toll. I'm not feeling too energised and healthy at the moment. I did a body fat test on Saturday, and I'm "obese" in accordance to my age. The funny thing is, I'm skinny as a stick. The obesity is inside! I'll have that all sorted by next Saturday. That's my large goal of the week. If you're at my seminar next weekend, I'll even prove it to you.

    So, that's all for now folks! I want to leave you with some exciting links…
