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!
I 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!
A 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!
There 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.)
So 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!
