Adapt and change

We get caught in so many situations in life. Every morning we wake to a challenge and every night we sleep with the satisfaction of having overcome it. Or perhaps not! There are some nights where we stay tossing in bed, faced with a situation that we do not know how to resolve. We get caught up in thinking about it, we feel about it but we cannot come to a conclusion about it. So what can we do? Change the circumstances ? Or change ourselves? Change is the only constant!pexels-photo-243206.jpegI get clients who want to kick-start their business, who want to get married, who want children, who want health and even more. But when I look at their charts I get a internal feeling of hopelessness. From their charts I can see the problem of mismatched energies, I know the solution, but I know that the client will not follow the solution and get himself out of the pain he is in. Human mind is quite lazy, doesn’t want to work or change itself. It will rather wallow in pain and terror rather than change. But change is a must, there can be no permanent solution until the mind and the thinking process changes.

Long ago, I used to make packets of healing energy, talisman/amulets for the clients, I really wanted to help people. And they always worked. But this made the client lazy and dependent, always asking me questions, finally getting uncertain about their decision making. But, now after so many charts and so many experiences, I have realised that I really help people only when I help them change themselves. Once you find the resources with yourself you are free!pexels-photo-1592384.jpegA practical example. So you are ill for quite some time and you are finally tired of being sick, you have ‘enjoyed’ being ill and now it is enough. So let us change. Teaching the mind to be healthy is what you have to do. But thinking about being sick all the time you have forgotten how it ‘feels’ to be healthy. So do this small experiment to remember ‘health’. However ill you may be, there must be one part of your body with is healthy and beautiful? Maybe your hair, or skin, eyes, nails, teeth? Anything? So now this is what you need to do.

  • Do a basic grounding and cleansing in a quick few minutes. Think of your source of faith/Universe/Reiki/Guru/favourite deity etc.
  • Sit comfortably and relax
  • Now visualise that healthy body part, e.g. your eyes. See their aura, golden and silver and feel the happiness that you have from having such beautiful healthy eyes. I mean really ‘feel’ the pleasure in your mind!
  • Appreciate your eyes and their health and beauty for a few minutes.
  • Now when your mind understands that you want it to love this healthy body part, expand it to cover your entire body. This feeling of health that you derived from your eyes, apply it to your entire body.
  • You can visualise this ‘health’ as a shower of golden/silver sparkles falling on you or you sitting in a pool of silver/gold water/energy.
  • If your mind tends to wander and immerse itself in morbid thoughts drag it back to your beautiful eyes.
  • You have to basically remind your mind to remember being healthy.
  • Then shield. Visualise a pearly silver gold cocoon of energy around you.
  • Do this mindful exercise everyday for 10 minutes? In fact as you wake up you can do this is your half-asleep state too.
  • There will be a change in your health and you will have brought it about with your own intention and energy.

Life is not a circle, we don’t come back to the point where we started from, we continue to evolve in spirals. It is new everytime!beach blue car combiThere are some individuals who never break, they just take the problems and situations in their stride and move on. They adapt and change their mind and their analytical processes to suit their new realities and always remain balanced internally. So how do they do that? The horoscope can be analysed to understand resilience and ability to bounce back, this is the domain of mainly Moon and Mercury.

The Moon is the Mind, deep fathomless. He is the experience of everything. The database of all your astral selves and past present parallel and future lives. He is every emotion you have experienced and every life you have lived. The position of the birth Moon, the sign and the house is very important. Also the planets he is conjunct with and aspected by. Basically a powerful moon placed well, will grant you emotional stability and comfort. You will always manage to find internal happiness and emotional security irrespective of the situations. Your mind will function without an emotional bias, you will be ready to be pleased, will not hold on to depressive emotions. Moon rules Cancer, so check out the location of Cancer in the birth horoscope. A well placed Cancer sign will subtly add to the power of the mind.

Position of the birth Mercury will determine the intellect and the analytical power. He runs the database. The ability to take a current event and match it through your experiences and learn from it. A well placed Mercury aspected by benefic planets will encourage a positive world-view. Mercury is the adolescent, sometimes immature even, thus is very responsive to other planetary influences. He is also highly adaptable and versatile, a multi-tasker. Also now check out the positions and placement of his signs, Gemini and Virgo in the horoscope. These also affect the intelligence in subtle ways. How you direct your mind is the domain of Mercury.

If you study the charts of such highly adaptable persons you will always find Gemini or Virgo as the ascendant sign or the birth moon sign in the birth chart or the navamsha chart. Mercury draws flack for his attention to detail and chatty behaviour. But these ‘Mercury’ behaviours if utilised properly have the ability to pull you out of strained circumstances. He is the Messenger, he can manage, manipulate, explain, describe, measure, communicate, interpret, think, analyse, instruct and engage with traders, merchants, middle-men, can see both sides of an argument, is duality himself. So if he is powered on, he will not let you get stuck in hopeless situations, he will look for solutions, pore over the data he has, and offer you options. (A weak Mercury will do the exact opposite and drag you into psychiatric and mental illnesses with his faulty thinking.)asphalt auto automobile automotiveSo think yourself out of the situations you are faced with. You have all the data you need, be imaginative and use it. Trust yourself always. You have so many more options to live your life beautifully. Use them and be happy!

 

Tiny magics, use with care

Everywhere in the world there is a variety of local magic which is channelised by shamans to help people in need. In North India these are called ‘totke’, tiny things that you can do with energy and intention to get results. As always, energy is by itself neutral, the use that you make of it makes it ‘black magic’ or ‘white magic’. Am writing a bit about these ‘totke’ in this post just so you are aware of what all can be done and in fact is being done using familiar daily objects. There are these targeted ads, ‘keep your husband in control’ which is strange and ‘keep your neighbour’s wife in control’ which is unbelievable! But there must be people interested in doing this negative things so let’s at least be aware of what all goes on in this energy world of ours.pin cushoinSpices – the energy of spices can be very easily harnessed in energy work. As it is, a tiny pinch of spice can change the flavour of food, they have medicinal properties, can affect our nerves and emotions on a very deep level.

  • I had written about a spice mix/mouth freshner in my earlier post here.
  • Another example, you can use spices to help you in your work. If you are going for an interview and you are worried. Take 3 cloves/laung in your right hand, sit on front of your puja ghar/altar and express your intention. Feel your intention enter the cloves. Then leave one clove in the puja ghar/altar, eat one clove when you enter the place where you are to give your interview and drop the 3rd clove at the seat where you will be sitting before giving the interview. Just remember that this is to boost you on emotional and psychological levels. If you have not studied, are not prepared, this will not work!
  • Never eat a spice, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon etc offered to you by another person or touched by anyone else.

Water – Water is a very innocent thing. We go to any place, we are first offered water to drink. But water can absorb energies, I had written about water in detail in this post here.

  • You can use water to enhance the positive energies around you by charging it with positive intentions. You can use Reiki, keep your glass of water in the puja-ghar/altar/sunlight, or dip a flower/fragrance/spice in it to change its energies. You can intend and just blow on it thrice and it will get charged. Or you can dip your fingers (generally only 4 fingers are used, not the pinkie) in it to charge it in a positive way. You can do anything with water, cure or curse!
  • A very quick way to cure normal sniffles, cough, cold and fever especially in babies and small children is to charge water in a copper pot/or glass with this mantra from ‘Devi Mahatmya’, “Om aing hreeng kling Chamundayye vicche, Rogan shesha napahansi tushta Rushta tu kaman sakalaanbhishtan Tvamashrita na vipannaranan Tvamashrita Hayashrayatan prayanti Om aing hreeng kling Chamundayye vicche, Om” In Sanskrit it is “ॐऐं ह्रीं क्लीं चामुण्डायै विच्चे, रोगान शेषानपहंसि तुष्टा, रुष्टा तु कामान् सकलानभीष्टान्, त्वामाश्रितानां न विपन्नराणां, त्वामाश्रिता ह्याश्रयतां प्रयान्ति, ॐ ऐं ह्रीं क्लीं चामुण्डायै विच्चे ॐ”.
  • But this ability of water to absorb energies can be used to harm too. (Channelling energies through the five fingers is very easy, as they resonate with the energies of planets/the 5 tattwas etc. The pinkie finger resonates with the energies of the Moon as well as Mercury). If you feel doubtful about someone, never drink water offered by him.

Food – All food that we prepare will contain salt. Salt especially sea salt is another very dangerous item, in the sense it absorbs energy and intention. This says it all. Do not eat food prepared by persons you do not trust.

But there are certain unavoidable circumstances where you cannot refuse the food/water offered to you. So now what? A easy solution, try to drop a bit of the food/water on the floor with the intention that its negativity gets ‘earthed’. The Great Mother Earth, somehow ‘cleans’ the food/drink in your plate/glass, so you can safely have it now.pexels-photo-1266139.jpegMetals – Metallic objects can be used in intentionally directing energy. I had written about charging your gold ornaments with positive energy here in this post. Here a couple of examples of ‘totke’ with metals.

  • You are the victim in a unfair legal case. Buy a lock and key, sit in front of your puja-ghar/altar and hold the lock-key in your hands. Make a chi-ball if you can. Put your intention in the metal, that the case is locked, status-quo is maintained. When you feel your palms buzzing with the energies you have created, simply lock it and never unlock it ever again. Keep the lock in your store and the key separately in another room.
  • You are the victim, and caught in a debt trap, the loan-shark will beat you up now. Take an iron nail, charge it with the intention of stopping his goons. Hammer it into the ground somewhere on the road leading to your house. They will be stopped.

Thread – Another ubiquitous object, but quite popular in local magic. You can ‘tie up’ things. If someone is out to harm you, you can simply think of the person out to hurt you and tie 3 knots on a black thread.

Dolls – And of course everyone knows about using dolls to harm. But I use dolls for distance healing in Reiki, it can be very effective if you cannot visualise the person. I stick the name of the person written on a paper on the doll and use it as a channel to send energy.

Tuesdays, Saturdays, Eclipses, Amavasyas, dusk, midnight are some of the times when the energies in the surroundings are more responsive to manipulation.

pexels-photo-461035-e1544688700511.jpegSo you see, if you have started working with energy, you can use almost any object to channelise it. Energy work is quite simple. But please be responsible with your energy talents. Here you can requesting energy from the Universe and directing it in the physical realm with your Will. You are the Creator, be very careful with your creations. If you do wrong or go against your conscience, it will be registered in your astral self and you may be required to spend your next life making up for it. So try to do good as much as possible.

Also be careful, our seers and sadhus have strict rules on what they eat, drink, wear, meet etc. It not their personal whims and fancies, its a bitter lesson that is learnt. Being free with your energy, being unaware of others, not taking basic precautions leads to more serious issues. So always shield yourself, do your cleansing and grounding and do some spiritual practice regularly to keep yourself charged with energy.
