Use your crystals again

I like working with crystals because they are very easily programmable, can be quite strong energy-batteries, and if you buy tumbled crystals in bulk they are quite inexpensive. Clear quartz is my work-horse, I use it for everything. Using crystals charged with mantras or Reiki gives very good results. Gemstones are another thing but are quite expensive, they too work quite well if charged with specific mantras. You can even charge the gold and silver jewellery you wear with energy. The object is not magic, it is your intention and will that turns it into a tiny energy battery supporting you throughout your day.clear-quartz-1920x1080-2.jpgSo here is another easy way you can use your crystals. You can do this on any day which resonates with you during the bright half of the month in the waxing moon phase (shukla paksha) (avoid Tuesdays and Saturdays). Buy a bagful clear of clear quartz tumbled crystals. Keep them for 30mins in a bucket with warm water and sea-salt to cleanse them thoroughly. Rinse them off and dry them. Now these crystals are ‘clean’ blank slates on which you can ‘write’ your intention. So how do you write your intention?

  1. Place all these stones on a clean cloth in front of your altar/puja ghar/sacred space. Set up the ambience in the way you like it, use incense, essential oils, flowers whatever uplifts your mood and brings you closer to the divine within you. (If you want do a cleansing and grounding exercise for your own self before starting.) Face east or north. Relax, take a few deep breaths, recite Om (dragging the mmmm part). Think of your favourite deity/Universe/Parabrahma/your higher self etc. whatever energy you have faith in.
  2. Take a nice colored pen and a small piece of paper. Write out your intention on this paper very clearly and positively. “I am healthy”, “I am happy”, “I am safe”, “I enjoy my office work”, “xyz is relaxed and rejuvenated”, etc. Visualise your intention in the present tense. You can intend health, happiness, fresh energy, protection from the evil eye etc for your own self or for the ones you love. But stick to one, only one thought at a time. The things that will manifest will depend on how strongly you are willing it, your intention powers everything. You are always in control. Now put this paper below the pile of crystals. Feel your intention from the core of your heart.
  3. Now if you know Reiki, draw all the Reiki symbols you have been taught in the air over the crystals in front of you. Intend that they enter the crystals. Visualise each Reiki symbol glowing silver/gold and entering the stones. Place both your palms on the stones and as strongly as you can, visualise the symbols within them and again strongly set your intention within them.
  4. Now if you do not know Reiki, you can still charge your crystals. Rub your palms on each other for a minute and fold your hands in the Namaskar position. This links up the chakras of both the palms and creates an energy circuit. Now focus into your third eye and recite your favourite mantra eg Gayatri mantra or if you want to energise some planet then its beej mantra or if pregnant then the relevant planetary mantra or any prayer which touches your soul. (A mantra needs to be recited 108 times). If you do it with full focus your palms will tingle, get hot or feel energised. Now place your energised palms on the stones in front of you and visualise your mantra entering the stones along with your intention. Keep your palms on them till you feel satisfied.
  5. Now take away your palms, thank your source of faith for the love and happiness you have in your life. Sit in a contemplative mood for a few minutes. Later keep the intention paper tucked somewhere near your altar/puja ghar/sacred space.
  6. Your crystals are now charged and ready for use.

Now where can use you use your charged crystals? Keep them everywhere, in your purse, underneath your pillow, under your mattress, in your wardrobe, in your shoe rack, kitchen cupboard, in your office desk, your car, in your water bottle, wherever you can think of. They will add energy to you in every way possible. You should recharge these stones once a month or even once a week if you feel like it, whenever you have time.

And finally you can reuse your crystals. After your intention gets manifested, you should burn your intention paper and wash your crystals in saltwater, cleanse them, turn them ‘blank’ again so that you can reprogram them with a different intention. This is the easiest and quite effective way you can use your crystals in your daily life.

If you want to experiment with other crystals I would recommend just these few. I haven’t needed more than these few for my energy work. Of course everyone will have their own experiences with crystals but for beginners this much is more than enough!

  1. clear quartz – your work-horse, do everything with it, it works very beautifully
  2. purple amethyst – helps in clarity stability grounding
  3. rose quartz – pinkish – balances the emotions related stuff
  4. tiger eye – gets rid of unnecessary baggage you are holding on to
  5. citrine – removes negative influences from aura and sub-conscious

And always remember you are powering your own intention, the crystals are just the tools. You are the magic and your own Magician.

Ley lines and cats!

Our Earth is not just a ball of water and rock moving through space, it is a conscious entity of energy and has its own secrets. Ley lines is one of its secrets, and we are learning a bit about them now. But Cats however are the strangest mystery of them all!

astronomy cosmic cosmos dark

I once had a client who was complaining of ill-health after shifting into a new house. So I went over to see this house. The house was built as per Vastu shastra and was quite neat and clean. Peeping into the client’s bedroom, I saw her 2 pet cats sleeping like dead on her bed. It was so strange, it was like they had actually died and were in rigour mortis. I had never seen a cat sleeping so deeply like this. My client said that these cats slept like this on her bed all the time! Creepy. So I ‘looked’ in the astral around the cats and found the answer. There was a miasma of grey energy around the cats.

Item 1 – The Cats – Cats are very strange animals, they enjoy negative energies. They can somehow relax with negative vibes around them, they seem to drink them and thrive on them. If you have a cat, maybe you would have noticed this. If your legs are aching your cat will wind itself around your legs and purr. If you have a tummy ache it will sit on your stomach and purr, can even fall in deep asleep. And it takes away the painful energy, your legs or tummy actually stops aching! And the cat seems to be quite unaffected with the negativity itself. So if you see your cats love a certain part of the house, cleanse it with sea-salt. And if you see them clinging to someone all the time, get their full body check up done.

Item 2 – The Grey Energy. It turned out to be a Ley line passing through the house. These are energy lines which criss-cross the earth. Our earth is a living dynamic entity and its energy is distributed on the crust. Ley lines are lines where the energy of the crust drastically changes. Something here alters the energy of the crust, maybe it is thinner or with water movements or specific rock types or fault lines or maybe a geographic stress area. These energies emitted are further affected by the tidal forces of the moon and sun and can get quite disturbing. A narrow strip of the line has a stressed magnetic field which is vibrating at completely different frequencies from the surrounding areas. If it is large enough it can be even sensed as a ‘haunted place’. In one study they found that the earth’s normal vibration of 7.83 Hz, goes upto a highly stressed frequency of 250Hz above a spot where an underground water channel crossed at 50-100m below ground.

We are electromagnetic in nature not biochemical. When we get in frequent contact with distorted energies our body’s electromagnetic properties suffer. This interference manifests in the physical body as a persistent illness. The energy from these ley lines can cause physical and psychological problems, like insomnia, headaches, nausea, tingling on skin, actual sickness, depression or a chronic aliment that does not get cured despite all efforts. It can get very serious if the energy of the line is strong. Having a ley line passing through your bedroom is especially dangerous as you sleep for about 8 hrs per day. This can allow latent problems or genetic potential problems to erupt as the body’s energy is in stress for so long during sleep everyday. Even offices built on ley lines can cause health problems in the employees who spend hours there.

There is not much research on Ley lines, but for those who can sense energy or work with energy they are quite visible. You can check using a dowser pendulum or if you can see auras you can make out grey-ish lines of energy criss-crossing the ground. Especially at the crossing points of two lines there is a pool of greyish energy created, which is even more dangerous for building a house. These negative energy pools can further attract negative entities, spirits, ghosts and create further problems. These can also attract people with negative mindsets so you might find more incidents of burglary in the area and you might even engage servants who steal from you.

If you have a doubt about ley lines passing through your office or house, and you cannot find someone to actually diagnose it, try changing your bedroom, or shifting the bed to another direction at least. In your office you can try shifting the desk/chair by a few feet if possible. If shifting like this is not possible there is another simple remedy. My client opted for this, keep a bunch of charged peacock feathers in a vase in this room as near to your bed as possible, it looks very pretty. On how to charge the peacock feather read it in my post here. If you cannot charge it for some reason or unable to recite the Sanskrit mantras, then you can pray to your favourite deity or the Universal energy for help in cleaning out the energies of your room and then set up your peacock feather vase. If you want to secure your office work station you can keep a glass jar full of tumbled clear quartz crystals  or a clear quartz pyramid on your desk. Charge them with your intention of protection from negative energies first.

quartz-in-bowl.jpg

Some may dismiss all this energy work as superstition, but here are so many things which are beyond our limited human perceptions and intelligence. Ley lines and their effects exist and if by some unfortunate chance you have to live or work at such a place, you should protect yourself from their negative energies.

Keep your Energy work simple!

I wrote a bit about the commercial energy supplies market in a previous post on Astrology and Reiki.So have continued on the theme in this one, trying to keep Runes, Tarot, Crystals and Gems simple. Our lives, destiny and the future is so complex, that seers from several cultures developed easy to use divination tools for us common persons to use. Divination tools, by definition, are simple to use and understand, these are the distilled wisdom of great minds who lived before us. And these tools have worked perfectly over thousands of years. But now, we have the Internet generation in the past 10-15yrs complicating stuff. And businessmen wanting us to spend money on buying more. With very few genuine teachers left who can actually make us understand. Let’s uncomplicate our energy-work now!

Runes

I use Elder Futhark runes sometimes, it gives me pleasure to handle these smooth stones marked with the symbols of ancient Norse shamans. Maybe I was one of them in some past life! And then these are also so accurate. It is a clean and beautiful system. Feels like we children are playing with the energies of the Universe. I have used these quite often to read for me and my clients. Am primarily an astrologer but sometimes the client wants just a focussed answer to a focussed question. So I don’t need to dive into their entire lives and their horoscope charts. In these cases, I use runes or tarot as a tool for divination. Sometimes iChing too, but somehow I think iChing is a bit fiddly, I need a pencil-paper and to refer to the reference book all the time. Runes and Tarot or Cartomancy with the Lenormand somehow appeals to me more. These give to the point precise answers.

But the new spiritual consumerism trend is not willing to let even these simple but powerful rune stones alone. A new blank rune named Wyrd  has been introduced in these past few years which means ‘nothing’! It actually means ‘Nothing can be seen from the runes, it is in the hands of the gods!’. A system of divination, a tool which has worked perfectly for thousands of years rendered useless by some immature person. Divination tools exist because they read the mind of the gods! I cannot tell my client that the reading means ‘nothing or everything’ because the Wyrd came up!

Then again if you want to use runes, collect a few nice feeling rounded stones from a river or forest or some natural place. Draw these symbols on them with a marker or etch them with a knife. They will work so beautifully because you have made them for yourself. They will resonate with your energies completely. But then we have in the market, runes made of exotic crystals, wood, bones and stuff. There is no need to spend money on runes drawn on amethyst, tiger-eyes and bloodstones to being with. Rather spend time practicing with them. Once you have learnt and experienced them, obviously you can buy whichever crystal rune set you like, they are quite beautiful!

So if you read runes, or intend to learn, stick to the basics and learn them thoroughly, leave the Wryd aside. Odin’s philosophy is quite robust and capable of answering everything! Runes are quite powerful, will post next on how I have used them practically.

opalite runes

Tarot

I love my Thoth Tarot deck. It is the only one I have. I tried reading with the Rider-Waite deck but it didn’t resonate, even felt distasteful in my hands. But now there are more decks than genuine Readers in the market! There are even blogs that tell you what your next deck should be, and what are the 50 essential decks that you absolutely must have. They all are very very beautiful, with fabulous artwork but what is the point of just buying them. Tarot is based on something called the ‘Tree of Life’. It is quite a deep philosophy and every one who is really interested in learning Tarot should compulsorily know it.

There are just 3 tarot decks which resonate and facilitate the understanding of the Tree of Life, 1) The Thoth Tarot, by Aleister Crowley & Frieda Harris. 2) The Tarot de Marseille by  Jodorovsky and Camoin, A version of the Conver (1760) deck with clean lines and colours, and 3) The Hermatic Tarot by Godfrey Dowson. Excluding these 3, every deck you see in the market is just pretty artwork, good for casual readings. If you want to really understand or use the Tarot for spiritual growth, stick to these 3.

A small note about the Rider-Waite deck, it is a tool for divination and if your objective is just knowing the answers to the questions it is quite good. But this deck in a very strange way shuts down your sub-conscious, limits it to the images drawn on the cards. You cannot use this deck for delving into the esoteric and the esoteric is the real soul of Tarot.

Now how do I know so much despite owning and using just this one Thoth deck. My brother! He buys decks because he loves the artwork of the newer decks. But he has been reading cards for over 20yrs now, since he was 7-8yrs old, so his basics and practice are quite clear with the Thoth. He reads all decks as if they were Thoth!

So for the student of Tarot, do not get caught in this loop of endlessly buying decks. Stay away from sheer consumerism. Stick to one of the 3 real decks and delve deep, study them, contemplate them and even meditate with them! Only then will real understanding dawn. After that you can definitely go and buy whichever deck’s artwork you like. But first understand the basics. And practice!

Crystals

Crystals are a very common item in energy-work. They are just like tiny batteries and can be used to store energy in a variety of ways like energy grids. They are very useful and everyone should learn more about them. But here too commercial ventures have taken over and there are hundreds of obscure crystals labelled with tiny meaning being peddled in shops. Its very easy profit you see. A kilo of tumbled clear quartz stones takes maybe Rs 10/- to manufacture, but it is sold at retail at over Rs 500/-. And more obscure the stone, more the price. And frankly it is not needed in your work. You can do everything you want with the clear quartz / ‘Sphatik’. I have found a few more crystals work for me but even that is optional, I could do the same work with clear quartz. So when you start working with crystals, stick to the bare essentials, try out the clear quartz in every which way, then explore more if you feel like it. I have found these five types to be more than enough for my work.

  1. clear quartz – your work-horse, can be used for anything and everything
  2. purple amethyst – helps in clarity stability grounding
  3. rose quartz – pinkish – balances the emotions related stuff
  4. tiger eye – gets rid of unnecessary baggage you are holding on to
  5. citrine – removes negative influences from aura and sub-conscious

Stay away from cancrinite, tugtupite, vorobyevites, trolleites, vayrynenites and other made up names. Stick to the basics. Energy work is basically your mind, focus and intention.

And at the last Gemstones

Gemstones are really expensive crystals, which are used as planetary remedies, Ruby-Sun, Emerald-Mercury, Diamond-Venus, Hessonite- North Node/Rahu, Chrysoberyl-Ketu, Red Coral-Mars, Yellow Sapphire-Jupiter, Blue-Sapphire- Saturn. These are the stones which really work if you can get your hands on them and know how to work with them. But these planetary remedy gemstones are quite expensive, an average person cannot really afford them. So to make even more money, a few greedy astrologers hit upon the idea of ‘upa-ratna’/ substitute gems. There are no ‘substitute gems’ in astrology. Either you wear a Rs 4 lakh blue sapphire or if you cannot afford it, recite the beej mantra of Saturn, you have just these 2 options. And both options work equally well. But now the substitute gems market is flourishing and both the astrologer and the jeweller are minting money. They dont really care what havoc they are causing in the life of their client. They can always prescribe more ‘remedies’.

navratna

So if you get caught with a astrologer who prescribes ‘citrine/sunhela’ instead of yellow sapphire as a remedy for Jupiter, please ignore such advise. You would be better off reciting the beej mantra of Jupiter 108 times every Thurdsay.

This was just a quick heads-up for all the students of divination. Always remember it is you the Reader who is reading the tools. The answers come from your sub-conscious, not the tools. To be a good Reader, please learn, study and practice. And always remember that someone, sometime in the future, is going to make a life changing decision because of what you will tell him.

Use your crystals, easy healing grids and more

I use crystals and gems in my work.  Though I generally do not prescribe gemstones for my clients, because I don’t think they can use them as they should be used. But I use crystals and gemstones, they take time and energy to set up but are quite reliable long-term option if you know what to do. Like the healing pyramid my brother made for me, using reiki on a crystal, is my permanent asset, I need to care for it once in a while though.

clear quartz crystal.jpg

Gemstones as planetary remedies of course everyone knows about, Ruby-Sun, Emerald-Mercury, Diamond-Venus, Hessonite- North Node/Rahu, Chrysoberyl-Ketu, Red Coral-Mars, Yellow Sapphire-Jupiter, Blue-Sapphire- Saturn. They can be fantastic energy batteries. But you need guidance from a genuine astrologer, a genuine jeweller, get genuine stones and then charge them periodically. Else it just a waste of money and as nothing happens the client feels cheated and then loses faith in this tool in our hands, astrology!

But crystals are still affordable and can be used in a variety of ways. I had a client who would always travel astrally out of control. She wore a bracelet of amethysts to add stability to her as she slept. This definitely helped. Charging the bracelet with reiki, cleansing with sea-salt helped recharge the crystals. But today I want to write about energy grids using crystals. You can use tumbled crystals, these are quite cheap if you buy in bulk from a wholesale dealer. If you buy individual pieces it will be quite expensive though. These grids can be used for a variety of things

A healing crystal grid. This is a crystal grid that my brother laid out yesterday to help one of his friends who is critically ill (waiting for a transplant). He has a collection of crystals and has laid this one out intuitively as he can actually see the energy radiating from the crystals. This grid is now on his friend’s bed at his home helping him as he battles it out in the hospital. Here my brother has used tumbled crystals of several types and linked then to 2 clear quartz pyramids and a central quartz as a focus.FullSizeRender.jpegI prefer a multi-purpose grid based on the geometries of mandalas, yantras and sacred geometries. You can try these too if you have the time and inclination. The best possible grid that you can use is the Sri-yantra if you have that many crystals! This is how you do it. You dont need to be extra-sensory like my brother, but you will need to focus on the objective, put your intention in it and believe.

sri-yantra-bw.png

  1. First take a print of this image on a large piece of paper. Set it where you think its appropriate, because once you set it up it is going to be there undisturbed for a few days at least.
  2. Get your crystals, do a quick cleansing by leaving them for 10mins in warm sea-salt water, rinse and dry.
  3. Face east or North. Sit down in front of the paper and crystals and touch them with both hands/fingertips. Breathe deeply and slowly relax. Say ‘Om’ thrice. Let the sound come from deep within you and drag the ‘mmmm’ part. Breathe some more, remember your stomach should move, not your chest, as you breathe in and out.
  4. Think of your favourite god /deity /reiki /mantra /force of nature /Guru /space /the universe /anything that inspires your faith! Intend your objective. “I am healthy and happy”, “I am working professionally and it is deeply satisfying’, ‘I am happily married to my partner of choice and we are happy together”, “xyz is happy and healthy and recovered”, etc. Visualize the completed scene in your minds eye. Feel the energy of the intention being fulfilled.
  5. Now first place your focus crystal, I always use a clear quartz pyramid. And from the center outwards in a clockwise direction start laying out your crystals. Place the crystals on the points of intersection in the diagram. (Use clear quartz tumbled crystals. As you get more experienced you can experiment with others or a mix of several crystals.)
  6. When you finish you can continue sitting for sometime feeling your intention and the resonance from the energy matrix that you have laid out.
  7.  This method is suitable for everyone and for all sorts of positive energy-work. From getting a job, to money, wife/husband/child, to healing and finding lost objects. This is the geometry of the Universe expressed in 2 dimensions. It fulfils wishes.
  8. After you get what you have intended, you will want to dismantle the grid. To do this, first thank the the energies/universe/deity/god/reiki etc for helping you out. Then sprinkle sea-salt water on the grid. Shake it once with the intention of gratefulness and disconnection. Pick up the crystals and paper. Wash the crystals in sea-salt water rinse/dry, and leave the paper in the sunlight for a day. You can reuse them now.
  9. But the easiest method I have found, is to write out what ever it is that I want, and just place it under my Maha-Meru that I use in my daily pujas. As the Maha Meru is the geometry of the Universe and I energise it every day by my mantras, the wish/intention kept near it also gets charged and eventually fulfilled.

So here is the basic method of making and using energy grids which will work for everything. This energy grid will work for everything and clear quartz will also work for all types of energy grids.flower-of-life-3.jpgBut you may want to work in more specific details, as you get more experience. You can explore more geometries and more crystal types if you really want to. I would recommend these as the best possible options.

Even more Geometries – which you can use as grids are the geometries of the 7 chakras/energy vertices. This will be a step up, as you will need to know where your problem is coming from. Basically from an energy point of view there are only 6 types of problems.

  • Muladhar chakra diagram – for any problem related to physical insecurity, use a red colored crystal as the focus
  • Swadhisthana chakra grid – for any imbalance related to the emotions, use a orange colored focus crystal
  • Manipur chakra grid – for any issues with self confidence and expression of the self, use a yellow focus crystal
  • Anahata chakra grid – for any problems in giving, use green focus crystal
  • Vishuddhi chakra grid – for any problems in communications, use a blue focus crystal
  • Anjya chakra grid – for any problems in perceptions and receiving. use an indigo focus crystal

The chakras are also associated with body parts too, so you can make a targeted health grid of that chakra, instead of an overall energy grid for the entire body (sriyantra above). This is just as an indicative list. As you get more confident in your energy-work your own sub-conscious will guide you. As always the crystals are to be placed on the points of intersections and a focus crystal in the exact center. In some of the grids there are curved lines, you can place additional crystals on these so that the lines look curved.

Even more crystals – If you have a gemstone you can use them in grids as focus stones to heal planet specific problems. But crystals! There are thousands of crystals in the market, all tagged with some complex tiny meanings that really make no sense in practical energy-work. And you don’t find them in the shop, or will be selling at ridiculously high prices. But there are a few important crystals that are easily available and at reasonable prices that you can consider experimenting with.

  1. clear quartz – your work-horse, do everything with it
  2. purple amethyst – helps in clarity stability grounding
  3. rose quartz – pinkish – balances the emotions related stuff
  4. tiger eye – gets rid of unnecessary baggage you are holding on to
  5. citrine – removes negative influences from aura and sub-conscious

Now crystal shapes, the commercial spiritual market has a big thing on shapes too! I use only tumbled stones (they are rounded have no sharp edges) and the Pyramids for focus.tumbled crystals.jpgBut just a word of experience, always the simplest works the best. I have not felt the need to use more than these 7 grids (6 chakra+1 Sri-yantra). Often the universal Sri-yantra works the best. And in crystals I have listed out just the ones I have used and which have worked. Energy-work is very simple and intuitive. Sometimes I work with just my hands or mind no tools needed at all. But I have realised that working through a tool is a bit easier and helps me keep a suitable distance from my clients and students auras. You never know what might be in them which may affect you negatively.

So do try this sometime, and see if you can manifest your wishes into reality!

 

Waking up a crystal

Sharing something my brother did for me.

A bit of background, for the past 20 odd years, I have been travelling frequently to Delhi and have had to stay there overnight too. And we all know Delhi has a rather blood stained history. For the past 1000 years this piece of land has been under continuous attacks from the Muslims to the British. And lakhs and lakhs of people have been horrifically killed on this piece of land. Thus this Delhi resonates with immense negative energy and there are several ghosts still chained to that land.

I have never been able to sleep in Delhi ever, even when I was younger and did not understand much of energy and stuff. And in case I did manage to sleep, the nightmares that would follow were unbelievable.

So my dear brother who is a Reiki teacher himself, did this cute thing to help me.https://psychologicallyastrology.comHe got a perfect clear quartz crystal pyramid for me and initiated it to a Reiki grandmaster level. The crystal pyramid became conscious and even gave himself a name.  He was awakened with the intention of helping me exclusively, so I now take him with me when I travel and request him to change the energy structures around my bed so that I can sleep and he does it. When I am too tired to do healing on myself again my crystal pyramid comes to my rescue. In return I keep him in my puja near my Meru and allow him to pick up on the mantras I chant and pujas I do. It is gratitude from me, to my crystal, for helping me.

How was this possible?

Crystals are living beings in the sense that they have life force (prana) though at lower vibration states. A clear quartz is a natural stone with a highly ordered lattice structure and this then cut precisely into a highly ordered pyramidal structure increased its basic energy. And when the Reiki attunement was added to this pyramid it became self aware enough to give itself a name. And because my brother loves me with a clear heart and his intention was to protect me, his intention was strong and pure enough to be transmitted to the newly awakened crystal pyramid thus orienting it.

I have not come across another example of this happening using Reiki on the Internet as yet. And in fact my brother did try doing this with another crystal pyramid for a cousin of ours, but that crystal did not wake up as clearly as mine did. It was all in the intention, for my brother protecting me, his sister, was the strongest and purest intention possible, so we think it worked the best.

But using crystals for healing and as power sources is not new. In astrology we have always used gemstones (just more expensive crystals) for healing and as powerbanks for ages and ages. Reiki was just another way of using them.

But a note of caution, because here we are requesting another life form to help us, the intention and sense of gratitude must be very deep and pure else it will not work and we may actually end up harming that life form.

Everything is alive from the specks of dust to the huge stars themselves and they all have the capacity to help us. We need to just develop that single pointed intention and deep sense of gratitude for towards that single Universal energy.

Why I dont prescribe gemstones

Go to any astrologer today and the first thing he/she will do is scare you. I mean really, scare you, with some line like ‘good you came to me at this time, you are about to suffer a major misfortune!” or something like this. Most of the astrologers charge by the hour and seem to want to make a one-off client a permanent patient, so that he can be scared again and again and of course charged money again and again.

And then they prescribe complicated pujas to be done at the temples/pandits of their choice or prescribe expensive gemstones to be bought from the jeweller of their choice. Naturally the pandit and jeweller pay a percentage of profit back to your astrologer. An equivalent of the doctors cut-practice. And scare you too with some misfortune too.https://psychologicallyastrology.comI have never prescribed such pujas involving pandits or gemstones in my entire life of reading horoscopes.

The reasons are very simple, for pujas,

  1. I have yet to meet a pandit or temple pujari who was very sincere about carrying out pujas and kept themselves away from tamasic stuff so that they could sincerely do their pujas. e.g. where I live in Uttarakhand, India temple priests are known to eat meat!
  2. A pandit who could pronounce the mantras properly and with the proper intent. Again a big question.
  3. The materials as required for the pujas are not pure anymore. Simplest example is cow ghee from the market is never made from pure desi cows milk and for pujas nothing else can do.

https://psychologicallyastrology.comAnd for the gemstones,

  1. Untreated and pure stones of the desired quality are not available. Most of the gemstones in the market are treated, meaning that they have been at least heated to get better commercially desirable properties.
  2. Gemstones are quite expensive, eg a good quality blue sapphire can easily cost RS 5 lakh or more. And wearing a substitute or lower quality one is no good and in fact may cause damage.
  3. Even if you manage to get yourself a gemstone, that particular piece may not suit you. Gemstones too are living beings, in the sense that they have prana (life energy) and its quite possible that the particular stone you just bought does not resonate with your personal energy. This will also cause damage. This is seen most spectacularly with blue sapphire where wearing a stone that does not suit you will cause you damage almost immediately within days.
  4. And the last but most important point which no one knows about. The Gemstone is a living being with prana (life energy). It has to be recharged regularly else it will lose its prana and “die”. When the gemstone is first worn a puja is done over it. If this puja is done properly with intention it nicely charges the stone. But over time depending on the quality of the stone and the horoscope of the individual using it, its energy gets drained. Dead gemstones lose their lustre, may develop cloudiness and some may even crack. Wearing a dead gemstone will cause damage. So how to recharge gemstones? No astrologer will tell you this, that this has to be done preferably weekly by doing a simple 108 jaap of the associated planet’s beej mantra over it.

So in my practice I soon came to the conclusion that I did not want repeat patients because I never took any money or anything for reading horoscopes or consulting, and i have always believed that astrology is an empowering tool. I never wanted people dependent on my words and wanted them to ultimately find their own spiritual core.

Of course a horoscope has plus and minus points and to put its energies in harmony certain corrective actions have to be taken. Over my practice I have found the following work with the added benefit of spiritually pushing the client healing him deeply from within.

  1. I always prescribe Dhyan, on how to do it here is a small video i made –> https://youtu.be/DSI4-I2Ahvg
  2. Beej mantras of the relatively weak planets which need boosting up in the horoscope always work. eg. OM hraang hreeng hroung sah suryaya namah 108 times jaap sitting on your asan on a sunday morning will work better than any ruby that you may wear. Just the individual has to be sincere and express his wish properly with full intention.
  3. I also ask my clients to perform homams. Doing Agnihotra daily at sunrise and sunset is highly desirable as it improves the energy of the entire surroundings and a simple mahamrutunjai homam is quite easy for any one to perform without a pandit and without unnecessary paraphernalia. What is essential is the Intention (Sankalp) of the individual.
  4. In case of specific problems also there are mantras which work 100%. e.g. for issues regarding marriage chanting srisukta once a day and then applying a tilak of kesar (saffron) always works. In fact srisukta is such a wonderful remedy for all problems because “Shri” is prosperity Herself. What ever is desired She grants. She grants worldly desires and also ultimately takes the individual along the spiritual path.
  5. For curing diseases, there are specific mantras from the Devi mahatmya (Durga Saptashati). To use it. Chant siddhakunjika stotra once and then ॐ ऐं ह्रीं क्लीं चामुण्डायै विच्चे |रोगानशेषानपहंसि तुष्टा रुष्टा तु कामान् सकलानभीष्टान् । त्वामाश्रितानां विपन्नराणां त्वामाश्रिता ह्याश्रयतां प्रयान्ति |ॐ ऐं ह्रीं क्लीं चामुण्डायै विच्चे | at least 3 times (ideally would be 108 times)
  6. Or for those who are a bit scared of invoking Devi Chandi for curing diseases, Vishnu sahastranama is also a wonderful option. Either reading it or listening to it or keeping the book under the pillow at night can work.
  7. For removal of curses, evil eye, ghosts etc ॐ ऐं ह्रीं क्लीं चामुण्डायै विच्चे 108 times is more than sufficient. Of course to activite this mantra chanting Siddhakunjka first is necessary.

So my dear readers, in case you get caught by an astrologer who wants to make you his regular patient, do remember that expensive pandits, pujas and gemstones are not everything. There are always other and more effective methods of changing your energies. If not anything else chant the Gayatri Mantra 27 times in the morning and evening and see yourself evolve. And as the Gayatri is also not correctly chanted here is how it actually should be chanted …

भूर्भुवः स्वः
ॐ तत्सवितुर्वरेण्यं
भर्गो देवस्य धीमहि
धियो यो नः प्रचोदयात् |
