In the world of wellness and spirituality, there are guiding lights that illuminate the path to self-discovery and healing. Among these, Minnku Buttar shines brightly. She is not just an intuitive coach but the founder of the Circle of Joy, a beacon of transformative experiences through mastery programs and retreats.
Minnku's journey into the realm of service is as multifaceted as it is inspiring. Her roots in the Sikh religion provided a foundation of spiritual teachings that would later intertwine with her personal experiences. Overcoming divorce and enduring the heartbreaking loss of her mother and sister within a mere decade shaped her perspective on life, resilience, and the profound depths of healing.
One of the pivotal lessons Minnku imparts is the surrender to the fantasy of what one believes they will become. The perpetual comparison and the ceaseless race to be the "best" can be exhausting. We already are, we are simply returning to that being. She emphasizes the importance of aligning with the universe, working in harmony rather than against it.
Central to her philosophy is the idea of cutting away toxic patterns and assuming personal responsibility. This, she advocates, is the gateway to illuminating the darkness within. She highlights that light is the force capable of dispelling that darkness, a metaphor for inner turmoil and challenges.
The storms in life, she professes, can be weathered through solutions that stem from a place of confidence and clarity. However, this journey toward mastery commences with an often-neglected aspect of self-care: the mind. Minnku questions why we invest so much in nurturing our bodies and outer well-being, yet tend to overlook the importance of nurturing our minds.
Becoming the master of one's own mind is an overarching theme in Minnku's teachings. Here are a three main areas of focus in mastering your mind:
Understand how our minds function and recognize the patterns of thought, particularly the self-sabotaging narratives that they can often generate. Taming the 'monkey mind'—the incessant chatter and myriad thoughts—is a crucial step towards self-mastery.
Diminish the ego, silence the inner critic, and return to a state of purity that we were born with from the core principles of healing, as Minnku describes it.
Open old wounds, confront past pains, and embrace the healing process to reclaim our innate purity.
She advocates for assuming the roles of author, director, and actor in the narrative of our lives. Instead of being slaves to the mind, Minnku encourages a dialogue with the universe, asking for what is right and acknowledging that what is given or withheld is for our ultimate good.
Her perspective on hope is especially poignant—it's not a passive state but a driving force that propels us toward our desires. It's the traction that keeps us moving forward on our journey towards fulfillment.
Minnku Buttar's journey and teachings are a testament to the power of resilience, self-discovery, and the transformative potential of mastering one's own mind. Her Circle of Joy stands as an oasis for those seeking profound inner growth and healing. Through her programs and retreats, she illuminates the path toward a more harmonious and joyful existence.
