Teaching and Learning at the same time

Had a rather wonderful weekend last week - taught 2 workshops at 2 different schools. I've been to the 1st one for a few times. Some people find it rather surprising when they know I, one from drama background, did workshop with dance students. They asked, "how can drama relate with dance?" I smile while answering, "they are considered as performing arts; and it depends on how you put them."

Both uses body language and they are expressing some message over the acting.

Teaching allow me to learn at the same time. By maintaining this connection seeing how these young spirits inspire me while they learn from my teaching I get to see how the students react to my way of teaching and I also get to understand more about what they think when they respond.

It is a constant reminder telling me that learning and teaching goes hand in hand. What matter is how I teach and learn at the same time. It is a two way thing.

What's more interesting is I had a class of 13 on the first day and 49 on the following. I learn adaptation, flexibility and being responsive in different circumstances while making the delivery of my responsibility. And then I thought to myself: the cycle goes on and on because when one shares the knowledge one learn new things even from the students. How beautiful is that?

Life Review & Passion

I was enjoying my own company surrounded by tranquility and light shower. And then I have this feeling to listen to advice about the situation that I am going through now so I approach the ARCHANGELS for their words.

Not surprise that my question about the status now and towards the goal that we aim was answered very directly by Archangel Haniel and Archangel Jeremiel.

Message: Playing it safe can lead to staleness and depression. You've asked for more happiness and definite direction. I've lit the flame of passion in your heart to lead and guide you. It's safe for you to take risks and follow your heart's desire. Ask me to be your partner along your path of passion, to guide and nurture you. When you feel a strong knowingness, alongside a burning passion, pay attention as this is my way of giving you information about your next step.

WORKING WITH ARCHANGEL HANIEL: Haniel's name means "Glory of God". Haniel can help give you glory to God by living at your highest potential. She'll groom your hidden talents, and help you polish your skills. Then, when you apply your masterful ways to your true passions, Divine magic occurs!

Message: It takes courage to look at your life. Yet, if done with compassion and a sense of humor, you'll grow and learn from a life review. I'll help you take stock of where you've been. We'll look at what you've learned, and how these lessons are a valuable asset for today and tomorrow. We'll also notice life patterns that aren't serving your highest good and we'll take steps to release those patterns".

WORKING WITH ARCHANGEL JEREMIEL: One of Jeremiel's purposes is to help newly crossed-over souls review their lives. He also helps those who are living to make life reviews. Take time soon to be alone, and ask Jeremiel to help you review where you've been, what you've learned, what patterns you're ready to release, and what you're grateful for in your life.

We make choices. Ones we tend to spend a lot of our attention on, not mentioning whether we're happy or regret later. With every decision we make in choices, we have chosen a path. One that we never know what's waiting ahead. So, all we could do is to make the wisest turn. Whatever direction it is heading to there is no turning back.

And we stick to our choice by giving it our fullest effort not only honoring the decision we make but also to show determination in the life we choose.

I had a very close to heart conversation with my youngest brother last night as we went out for dinner. And the talk got me into deeper thinking.

Being clear and determinant is my promise, to myself and also to the ones who love me. I am liable and responsible for my own life and I ought to set it right if I want a right one.


What is the Connection between Heart, Soul and Mind?

The writing meditation that taken place last Saturday has got me a room in myself to think deeper about the connection of these three elements. What I saw in different participants is very beautiful - the journey they gone through during the process of connecting all three together.

By seeing these different journeys I am being brought to a state where understanding slowly penetrates each and every scene then come back with fruitful results.

Turning inwards is crucial because it is when confrontation and admittance as well as recognition are playing their roles to it's fullest. It is rather obvious to see how one's eyes actually has become brighter by allowing the heart to sing the song and soul to adjust itself as well as mind to undergo reconfiguration.

What good does the process give? It's very much like sending the car for alignment and balancing. It doesn't seem as serious as engine breakdown but definitely will kill when got out of control.

We set expectation, either from ourselves or others, a standard that we set in our heart waiting to be met. By presetting such expectation, we eventually get only 2 results: either feeling proud or disappointed.

I am sure no one's aim is to expect disappointment.

We all want achievement, the exciting and uplifting as well as rewarding one.

But come to think of it: is there any way to help us with greater chance to achieving that?

I'd say yes. And my answer is: it lies in the expectation we set.

Set the expectation to the degree where is a little beyond our present ability. Why not set a sky high one so that we can make a very big leap? Of course this is totally up to different people's aim.

I like to see gradual growth. It gives me a push for me to move out from my comfort zone yet still achievable in near future. It is very much like baby steps - progressing slowly.

Consistency is virtue.

It is always important to master how to walk before run, but must always maintain the pace in pursuing a better state so that one does not stay stagnant.

Attracts the force and opportunities that allows one to expand and grow by not losing one's true self. When expectation meets real potential and effort, they are like a beautiful song painting the sky with colors.

Expectation serves as a reminder, a monitor that keeps us going. Thus we must be sure: where and how we want to become.

It isn't only the result that matter, the journey too.

Past Life Regression

I went for a preview talk about how Past Life actually bring impact to the present one, and how she (Dr. Selina) helped people to get over the problems they have by regressing their past life (or lives).

I am one who believe in reincarnation, thus I believe the connection between lives. But there is one thing I am not too sure and so I posted the question to Dr. Selina, "how do we distinguish between a real past life image from our imagination?"

I mean we all know about "cause and effect" or "karma" in other words, but now that we are a living creature with this particular brain that's stuck to the neck of this physical body that absorbs millions and millions of information everyday how can we really see which is real or projected image?

And so she replied politely with a smile, "you'll know when you are in there (the hypnotised state)".

No offense but the feeling is very much when you're asked to ask that Gypsy Woman who claims can see one's future by looking into the crystal ball (whereas this is looking into the past instead) - unless I pay that money.

I wasn't challenging the idea because like I said I do believe in past life. Besides I have one question that I thought I could use PLR to help - I have a multi-nodular goiter in my neck which I've done all the relevant tests but found nothing wrong. So a friend used SRT to ask if it is due to my past life and the answer is positive. Another friend told me his mom got the same goiter, removed by they grow back again. So I thought I could seek PLR's help to unveil the reason so that I can resolve it and then remove the goiter by operation hoping to heal it once and for all.

But if Dr. Selina's answer stands, does it mean I should just do it without questioning for as long as it helps me with my problem? Or perhaps I should look into it carefully and think: how can it be more specific when it comes to explanation? After all, I am no blind believer.

Cassandra Chong, my ex-college mate, a renowned International Jazz singer

It's always great to see old friend, especially those from school days. But I must admit this meeting came in REAL late and I sincerely apologize for that.

It's about Cass, she's ex-APIITian with me in PF0032, back in 2000. I left the college one year later after completed my Diploma in Business with IT and I've never seen her ever since.

Approximately 3 months ago, I got a call from her and she told me that she's in town singing jazz at G Hotel. I got very excited to meet her but it felt weird because all the appointments never worked - whether she's not available or I was occupied.

2 days ago, I could not stand anymore. I called and said the first thing she picked up, "Cass, you gotta squeeze me some time. It's end of the month and you definitely is leaving very soon". She laughed (as always) in the phone and said, "ya, officially last night tonight and I just do another extra tomorrow then will leave on Sunday".

And so, we met, finally.

It is a kind of feeling where excitement blends so well with sentiment, especially the age part. We did not see each other for 8 years and it actually felt like a few short years ago only. But then the time that we did not see each other crawled back and filled the gap between then and now, and only by then we realize "WHOA!"

It was a sentimental morning, raining cats and dogs in a dramatic way - suddenly heavy and suddenly stop, then followed with another long shower. We brought her to different hawker foods and basically end up taking almost 2 hours for breakfast. What to do, Penang if the city of good food mah!!!!!

Had a great time catching up, mostly laughters and we missed Joanne as well as EeWei and Gurjeet (only to realize this morning that Gurjeet, who's been MIA for quite a while, popped up in my facebook to say hi. WOW! She's psychic or what?).

Anyway we sent her back to hotel at around 2 something as she needs to continue with her schedule. So here I am recording this very happy reunion, although very late (but better than never [and I almost hear Joanne doing that "boooo....., that's lame" wicked look at me when she's reading this]).

Definitely not having enough fun yet, but am very glad to see you Cass, after so many years! (Cass composes her own song and she has a very beautiful voice. Please drop by her website to check out yourself at or read her up on NST online)

Doris & Cass

Joie, Doris, Cass
(can't believe it, cam whoring!!! That's why me and Joie look so unnatural)
