How to get on easy with everyone February 28, 2007

Today I want to share with you one of my best communication tricks.

But first you should know that whatever tricks I am using, it is all authentic, coming from my own self and not being learned or trained. It took me some time to realise that these are actually tricks :).

My best communication trick works on the basic human quality described here. I guess, it will not work without it!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

When you meet a person, just see her/him as a child!

When you address a person, address a child in her/him.

Of cause you should not speak to a person, as you would speak to a child, but deep within you just keep this feeling of being children on the same playground.

WHY DOES IT WORK?

Addressing a child in a person, you switch on the most powerful element in us – the innocence. It is the root of every human being, and even if it is covered with all sorts of stupid things, it is still there!

Innocence works like a magnet – we all know that animals are very innocent and they act according to the magnet field of the Earth. So does our innocence, it acts like a magnet and it attracts the innocence in others to us.

I was happy to find out that this trick works with somebody else as well: a colleague of mine, a successful oil trader who is on good terms with the half of the world and one of the best communicators I know told me once that he sees all people as his classmates. That is his trick for successful negotiation – and he is just great in it!

And what I really like about it is that you are absolutely safe and comfortable in every communication – the roughest person calms down and the most arrogant one humbles down…

It can be your boss, a prime minister or a queen – when you see a child in a person, you are on the same level and they accept it!

I want to be February 26, 2007

Filed under: India,innocence,joy,love,poetry,spirituality,thoughts,women,world — axinia @ 4:33 pm

  

I want to be smaller,

Like a dust particle

Which moves with the wind

 

It goes everywhere,

can go,

Sit on the head of a king

Or can go

And fall at the feet of someone

And it can go

And sit everywhere

 

But I want to be a particle of dust

That is fragrant,

That is nourishing

That is enlightening.

 

Poem by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi at the age of 7.

 

What is on top of your value system?

  

This question could be even more crucial than one can think. For it is our value system that  leads us in our daily lives and rules our decisions.

There are psychological tests helping you to identify your primary values. But let me tell you what kind of a simple test I found for myself.

Since my childhood my highest motivation has been to become better, to develop myself as much as possible. As I grew up in the Soviet Union, I was deeply atheistic and luckily not conditioned by any religion. But at the age of 20 I suddenly realized that it was actually SPIRITUALITY I was looking for. I was a seeker of truth and wanted to find my spirit.

Once I was travelling by train in Russia and  met a nice young boy in my compartment. As It often happens on a trip, we spent the whole night talking about all possible things, sharing life experiences and ideas. And somehow we came to the topic of spirituality  –  surprisingly for me he mentioned this word first! I asked him what spirituality actually is – because it seems like nobody knows exactly.

7 Steps of all-purpose management by axinia February 23, 2007

Being a young female foreigner in Austria I managed to represent that country several times in different international projects and organizations.

How come? Are there not enough local talents?

Happy to share with you my recipe of success (works in ALL life situations).

7 STEPS OF MANAGING PEOPLE, PROBLEMS, PROJECTS, ETC.

1. Two conditions are absolutely crucial: be loving and forgiving!

2. In the light of your love to people you can easily see the best qualities in them.

3. Praise people! – do it from you heart being convinced in their powers! Surprisingly often people are unaware of their less obvious talents and abilities. And they are more than grateful for pointing it out.

4. Always ask people about their interests, hobbies, special knowledge and abilities – they are happy that someone is interested and happy to help you next time you need them for a project.

5. Disregard gossip and moaning: if you know that A and B can not stand each other, there is no chance to make them work together. If you don`t know about this  – most probably you will easily make them work together! (remember mind projections?)

6. Ask people for a favour with an innocence of a child, without feeling guilty or being bossy.

7. Remember: you are not the doer! – do not let any success to pumper your ego, otherwise you will not manage the next thing so easy. The easiness of the work is the sign of you being the right instrument at the right time in the right place.

Good luck!

WHY THIS BLOG? February 22, 2007

Filed under: жизнь,personal,spirituality,thoughts,WHY THIS BLOG?,world — axinia @ 7:57 am

After developing my first blog ShaktiPower that is generally about woman and beauty I found out that there is sill much more I want to share with the world.

 

“1000 petals” means to me:

1000 wonderful, colorful petals on the FLOWER OF LIFE, and the opening of each brings some new freshness and beauty to the world…

1000 sweet, gentle and yet powerful petals on the FLOWER OF LOVE, and the opening of each promisses new and new shades of the loving light…

1000 petals of Sahasrara, the seventh chakra on top of the head. Indian scriptures call it “1000 petal lotus”, modern medicine speaks about 1000 nerve endings of the brain…

LOVE, axinia

 

The top secret of success February 21, 2007

 image by a4gpa

Children are the most successful of us all, for  they succeed to be loved just for what they are!

“What are boys and girls made of?” – goes a song from my childhood. Yes, what are they made of?

I guess, the incredible sweetness and magnetism of a child`s nature is a great mixture of innocence, wisdom, spontanety and pure heart.  These qualities are manifested through two simple but genius ways:

  • a child is joy-giving
  • a child enjoys everything

How many of us, adults have preserved these miraculous features? (more…)

 

Touching the originals of William Blake

Filed under: innocence,personal,spirituality,thoughts,world — axinia @ 1:06 pm

 

Yesterday I had an oustanding expereince – I had a chance to keep in my hands one original book printed by William Blake himself!

The vibrations were so powerful, the cool breeze was pouring from the pages and my heart cleared in one minute. No wonder – he is said to be the incarnation of the left side. Whatever it is, his vibrations and artistic works are really divine…

William Blake (1757 – 1827) was an English poet, painter, and printmaker. Largely unrecognised during his lifetime, his work is today considered seminal and significant in the history of both poetry and the visual arts. He has often been credited as being the most spiritual writer of his time.

Blake may have played a critical role in the modern Western World’s conception of imagination. His belief that humanity could overcome the limitations of its five senses is perhaps Blake’s greatest legacy: “If the doors of perception were cleansed, every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite.”(The Marriage of Heaven and Hell) While his perspective was once perceived as merely aberrant, it now seems to have been incorporated into the modern definition of the term.

 

In particular, his reference to “the doors of perception” resonated demonstrably in the literature and music of the 20th century, as both Jim Morrison‘s band The Doors and Aldous Huxley‘s book The Doors of Perception pay homage to Blake’s sentiment.

LOVE, axinia
