Are you missing a sign? (or What do you think this means?)

Yesterday, something strange happened to me.
In the mornings and in the evenings, I always take my dog for a walk. Sometimes, we go thrice a day.
Yesterday, in the morning, when I went for my walk, I saw this.

 It was a little rope which was lying in my path in the shape of a heart. I just found it cute and amusing. So I clicked a picture and posted in on my Instagram stories. (I keep posting  throughout the day, tiny snippets from my life.) Those of you who follow me on instagram, must have seen this in my feed. You can see my foot and my dog's paw in the above photo.

Then I walked on. A few minutes later, I found another rope/chord lying on my path--and this one too in the shape of a heart! I clicked another photo.

Here too you can see my foot and my dog's paw.

I had read a lot of posts from Erin Pavlina, as in the past many remarkable coincidences kept happening in my life. Erin has written a very useful piece, where she explains how to tell if something is a sign from the Universe or a coincidence. (Please click on it and read the piece)
So I thought to myself-- 'Is the Universe trying to tell me something? If so, I need to see another sign. If I don't see anything, I will just dismiss it as a coincidence.'

Then I forgot about these two heart signs that had popped up on my path, and went about my business. I am immersed in the editing of my next novel which will be out in September. I was drowned in the book, and I did not think about this at all.

In the evening, I took my dog for a walk, still lost in my thoughts. (Editing is a very intense process, and a lot of re-writing happens during edits). Then suddenly, I spotted this:

Can you see the heart shape? I couldn't believe it! I looked again and then clicked a picture. And I thought to myself, 'Oh I have seen three heart shapes now. I wonder if it means anything?'

Seconds later, I spotted this!



I was stunned. How could this be? I clicked a picture and then walked on.

What was it that the Universe was trying to tell me? Are all of these just coincidences and am I making a big deal of nothing?
Being a very visual person (I am an artist in addition to being a writer. Click HERE  to see my artwork) I do believe in intuition and the wisdom of our higher selves. I knew that there was something to these signs. But I didn't know what. I decided I would do my meditation (I do it on a daily basis) and try and find some answers.

This was not all. At night, my daughter (who lives abroad)  called me on skype. My skype calls with my daughter tend to be an hour long or more. We talk, we laugh and we catch up on everything. Her birthday had just gone by, and she wanted to show me one of the gifts she received.
'Do you want to see Mama?' she asked.
'Of course, show it to me,' I said.

This is what she showed me:



 It was a heart shaped jewellery box!
 I had goosebumps all over as I saw it.

It was the fifth heart I was seeing that day.

It was clear that the Universe was sending me a message. Perhaps a lot of love is coming my way? :)
(I do receive SO MUCH LOVE from my readers).

I don't know what these hearts mean, but they sure left me feeling good.

I think it is important to pay attention to these signs that the Universe sends us. If something keeps popping up, in your life, sit up an pay attention. It's a message from your higher self, and you are bein guided with love, towards your highest good.


What do you think all these hearts that I saw mean? Please tell me in comments. If you are reading this in your inbox, please don't reply to this mail. Instead, head over to my blog and leave me a comment, will you?

I would love to hear your interpretation of it!

  9. Hmm! Do you have any dispute between your heart and your mind right now? It could be related to anything that you are writing or a personal matter! If so then I guess the universe is just telling you to listen to your heart!” :)

Why you are making a mistake if you don't speak up about #MeToo

The last few days have been tumultuous for everyone in urban India. If you are a working professional, or have worked at some point in your life, or if you strongly believe in gender equality,  it is hard to not get affected by the #Metoo movement. The #Metoo movement has taken off in India, like the  metaphorical snowball. I too, like many of you,  have been following closely, in shocked silence, as it has been unfolding. I can't tell you how happy I am that women in India, are standing up in solidarity, taking back their dignity.

Several  powerful men have been named.The stories have come POURING out.
I shall not go into details of the men named or the incidents here, as it is all over the media.

When something happens in your field of interest, it is natural that it affects you more than the incidents that happen in other fields. For me, what has been particularly disturbing was that the names from the field of literature that were coming out as well.

5 easy and useful tips to help you achieve your goals.

Dreams are goals with a deadline. If you can dream it, you can achieve it. I am a huge believer of these two statements.

Many a time, I have been asked this question
'How do you do so many things? How do you focus on your goals? How are you so dedicated?'

Many have written to me asking me to share my routine/ time-management/how I organise my day. So here goes:

Currently I am doing a challenge called Intkober where you do 31 drawings in Ink, in 31 days. The prompts are given in advance. Click on the link to know more. Thousands of artists all over the world do it, each year. I post my drawings on myInstagram art handle.

This is in addition to my writing which I do daily. I also make a portrait every single day, apart from Inktober.

I guess, to most people who see this, it looks like a LOT of things and they wonder how I manage it. Here are five  things I do, which help me. (and I hope they help you too)

1. Define the goals.

At the beginning of each month, I write down (in a dia…

The Rule Breakers by Preeti Shenoy, Out in stores now! Also let's meet in these cities! :)

Yesterday, my eleventh book The Rule Breakers went out into the world!

It was a proud and a happy day :)






I had an interview at Red FM, and in the video above, you can see me, along with RJ Zeishah, and she loved the book. It was wonderful discussing the book with her.

The book is out in bookstores now.



So, you don't have to wait anymore, if you wish to read it :)

The story is a COMPLEX one. It begins very simply and easily. It is the story of Veda.
But after she gets married (at 19) to a guy chosen by her parents, and shifts to Pune from Joshimath, new people enter her life.  The timid, shy Veda must now carve her own path.

Here are a few characters from the book:



Follow Veda's story, as she goes through life, and find out for yourself, who the REAL rule-breakers  are in this book!
