The Power Of Wordless Communication

the power of wordless communication by Amyra Mah

Have you ever wanted to shoot off that email right away, or to speak to someone face-to-face urgently, gripped by impatience?  We seem to think that if we don’t do it right away, we would be disadvantaged in some way.  We think our words, written or spoken, have so much power that we must assert this power right away.  We may be so accustomed to using words that we can’t see the value of not using words.

Suppose I ask you to communicate or take action without using words.  How would you handle it?  What are some of the non-word ways of communicating?  If you’re like most people, you’d probably have to think about it before answering.

3 Mindset Shifts You Can Implement Right Away To Transform Your Life

Mindset Shifts to Transform Your Life

Here are three simple mindset shifts you can implement right away to promote powerful changes in your life and give you more inner peace.

MINDSET SHIFT #1:  Stop Figuring Out Why

I used to be obsessed with working out why things happened.  I couldn’t leave anything not figured out, explained, analysed and neatly assigned to a mental compartment.  I would obsess about finding the answer to why someone did, didn’t do, said, or didn’t say, something.  What was their motive, agenda, frame of mind?  With the precision of a scientist, I would trace back events, leaving no stone unturned, until I had gathered all the ‘facts’ I needed to come up with the perfect answer.

Arresting The Cycle: How You Can Take Your Power Back And Avert Crisis

How to take your power back and avert a crisis - Unusual Wisdom

Nobody likes crises.  Yet most who have survived one would be able to tell you that they gained something valuable from the experience and how it’s made them better persons.  I believe that crises often happen to help steer us back on the path that is aligned with our soul:

Sometimes, it happens after we’ve failed to see and follow repeated signals that our soul had been giving us; when anything short of a crisis would not get our attention.

Other times, it happens because the crisis is deemed to be the best way for us to learn specific lessons.

Channeling Creativity from Endings, Losses and Disappointments

Channelling creativity from loss, endings, disappointments with Amyra Mah

I was listening to Srinivas Rao’s The Unmistakable Creative podcast where he interviewed Allison Gryphon, who upon being diagnosed with cancer channeled her energy into something she calls “fearless filmaking” – both as a coping mechanism and an inspired project.  She described the moments just after she had learnt the news, where she experienced life being fully present for the first time: walking on the beach she felt sand like she never felt sand before; eating strawberries and drinking expresso, and truly tasting them for the first time.  She reminisced about how wonderful it would be if that is the place people start off with, rather than wait until we are faced with death to start being truly alive.

20 Ways To Renew Yourself

30 Dec
December 30, 2013

There is nothing more exciting than living a life of constant self-renewal.  Self-renewal is the attention you give towards ensuring that your life is forward-moving, with every step bringing you closer to who you really are.  It entails stripping away the old and stale, so that you become increasingly aware of the purity of your true essence.

Every time you renew yourself, you relate to your world with a renewed sense of aliveness, seeing beauty and colours through fresh eyes.  As you experience this newness, your life-force is activated.  Life, inside and outside of you, becomes rich and inspiring.

The Gift Of Rebirth

Appreciating the Gift of Rebirth with Amyra Mah

“Where is the fountain that throws out these flowers in such a ceaseless outbreak of ecstasy?” – Tagore

One afternoon about a month ago, I looked outside my house after the gardeners had finished cutting the grass and was shocked to see that they had chopped off plenty of healthy plants.  The tall plants in the middle of an open area, a number of short palm trees, the lush shrubs around the front of my house protecting my privacy… some of these plants I’d loved so much that I knew their individual leaves… they laid on the ground in piles waiting to be collected and disposed of.  I took in the massacre before my eyes.

The Day When Suffering Stopped

How to end suffering and discover joy with Amyra Mah
I was in a session with a client at my centre the other day when I witnessed the precise moment when suffering ended.  It was breathtaking.  In that moment, I saw the endless grasping –  the controlling, fixing, righting what’s not right, perfecting what’s imperfect, knowing what’s not known, searching for answers – STOP.

In my work as an addiction therapist, my job is to lead people to the edge of the door beyond which lies their heart waiting to awaken, and guide them to travel through that door and emerge the other side as their authentic self.

Why Law Of Attraction Is So Yesterday

How to practise law of attraction more powerfully with Amyra Mah
Ever since the movie ‘The Secret’ came out in 2006, a whole new sector in the global self-help industry has blossomed.  Suddenly, people were finding the message that we can create our own reality an empowering alternative to what they had put up with previously: being stuck, sick, poor and unhappy.  Six years later, after countless of books, audios, videos, programmes and systems being produced to cater to a mass of people hungry for more info, more details, more secrets to master this ‘secret’ – I see two things in terms of where this has taken us in our conscious development.

How Failure Can Lead You To What Your Soul Yearns

Discover your soul yearning with Amyra Mah
In the horror film ‘Vanishing On 7th Street’ there is a scene where John Leguizamo’s character Paul is led into a tunnel.  As he follows to the end of the tunnel, he finds himself facing a dead-end.  He turns around and sees the light furthest to him black out.  Then the next furthest light dims, and the next….  What struck me most was not the sensations the producers of the movie must have wanted to evoke in the audience, ie. to feel Paul’s increasing terror as darkness inches closer and closer.  Rather, it was how the remaining light becomes increasingly brighter as the light dims one by one.

Simplicity Is The Way To Go

View Walking Down from Glastonbury Tor
I’ve been asked what my resolution is for 2010, so I will share it here.  For the record, I have stopped making new year resolutions some years ago.  I had found that the long list I tended to come up with too depressing after a while.  Too much unnecessary pressure, as if life did not present enough on my plate already!  I’ve since taken the route of flowing with whatever life presents, whatever time of the year it is.  This year, if I were to come up with one resolution, it would be to keep every area of my life as simple as possible.
