Modern life can sometimes feel overwhelming, even more so for newcomers trying to adjust to their new lives. In those moments, it’s important to take a step back and ground ourselves.

Tara Maa is a spiritual life coach, certified chakra dance facilitator, and living Shakti guides individuals on a transformative journey toward self-realization and finding balance.

In the hustle and bustle of modern life, it’s easy to lose sight of our spiritual essence and the divinity within us. Tara Maa, a spiritual life coach, certified chakra dance facilitator, and living Shakti, guides individuals on a transformative journey toward self-realization. In this article, we explore Tara Maa’s teachings on recognizing and embracing the divine within ourselves, emphasizing the importance of mindfulness and spiritual rituals in our daily lives.

Maa encourages individuals to become aware of the divine within themselves. She emphasizes the significance of setting a goal to recognize and realize this divinity. Every human being, every plant, and every stone carries the essence of divinity. Maa believes that acknowledging this inherent divinity is the first step towards living a purposeful and fulfilling life.

Recognizing one’s divinity requires focus and inner peace, a challenging feat in a world filled with distractions. Maa acknowledges the struggles people face, the mind jumping from one thought to another, and the inability to settle down and be present in the moment. Meditation becomes a crucial tool in this journey, helping individuals calm their minds, gain focus, and ultimately connect with their divine nature.

Maa stresses the importance of meditation as a means to settle the mind and cultivate a deep sense of awareness. In a society that glorifies multitasking, Maa reminds us that true focus comes from dedicating our attention to one thing at a time. She likens the early stages of meditation to a beginner’s attempt at eating, initially messy, but with practice, it becomes refined, leading to a more profound connection with the self.

In many cultures, spiritual rituals were an integral part of daily life. Maa Maa reminisces about seeing grandmothers immersed in prayer while the family bustled around. She acknowledges that, in today’s fast-paced and often fragmented lifestyles, such traditions have become less prevalent. However, Maa encourages individuals to reintegrate spiritual practices into their lives, even in the absence of a joint family structure.

Drawing from her own experiences growing up in Trinidad, Maa discusses the impact of cultural and familial influences on spiritual practices. In a joint family setting, grandparents often set the example for spiritual living. In contemporary, individualistic societies like Canada, the responsibility falls on parents to establish these traditions, passing down cultural and spiritual values to the next generation.

Maa recognizes the challenges faced by immigrants, especially in the busy, do-it-yourself culture prevalent in many countries. Immigrants often juggle various responsibilities, from work to family, leaving little time for personal well-being. Maa emphasizes the need for immigrants to dedicate time to maintain a balance between physical, spiritual, and mental health, reminding them of their deeper purpose in this world.

In the company of Maa, the journey to rediscover the divine within becomes a transformative experience. Through mindfulness, meditation, and a return to spiritual rituals, individuals can reconnect with their inner selves, fostering a sense of purpose and fulfillment amid life’s chaos. As Maa teaches, recognizing and embracing our divinity is not just a personal endeavour but a collective responsibility that contributes to the well-being of our communities and the world at large.
