Hauntings and traumatic deaths

A quick post. Today I read in the news that some people want the government to convert some of our trains into mobile hospitals and run them as such. In this coronavirus COVID 19 emergency, any option is a good option if it saves lives. But, if the government does do this then, these hospital trains should never be used as passenger trains again, ever.

A personal experience. When I got selected for the job that I work in, I was 22yrs old. I knew astrology and the other dimension stuff, knew of energy and ghosts. Till then I was living at home and had not faced the world or the other worlds on my own. At home, my parents and grandmom were there to take care of all this stuff. This was the first time I was alone. Now, we, the newly recruited officers had a few months training period in an academy. We all were to stay in the hostels attached to this academy. It was a beautiful large campus, the rooms were very good, obviously each officer had one room to himself. It was not a hostel building but several rows of rooms, very quaint. I stayed there for 3 months and did not sleep for a single night there. I am not afraid of the dark, I can move about in pitch darkness anywhere. But here I could not sleep even if I left the lights on! I used to catch a few hours sleep in the evenings. And sit awake in the nights. After we passed out from the academy, I mentioned this sleeplessness to one of my batchmates and he told me something about the history of the hostel rooms that was truly horrifying.

These several cute rows of rooms were built as a hospital for the soldiers injured during the First World War! It was, for years, a hospital for the seriously wounded soldiers who had seen terrible scenes from the war. These poor souls were now in severe pain, perhaps crippled or dying. Several had died in these rooms alone without any comfort from their loved ones. The terrible energy of their trauma and their dying agonies were still echoing in the walls of these rooms. Worse, their spirits were still in these rooms. And then I clearly remembered what used to actually happen every night in those rooms. As I would start to fall asleep, the souls haunting the place would talk to me in my half-asleep state, flashing their pain and trauma into my aura. (Spirits generally communicate directly into your subtle body, ie through your aura.) They were telling me their stories and asking me to release them from their current pitiable state. They knew I was someone who could do it so were insistent. But then I was very inexperienced, rather unaware of what was happening. So would wake up in discomfort and confusion, never understanding. A few of my batchmates who were of a spiritual mind-set also suffered in those rooms. But most people live their lives on the very superficial physical levels, so no one really understood what pain those hostel rooms actually contained.

Hauntings and traumatic deaths

People who die alone and in pain are often unable to find the route to the next dimension of the spirits, Pitru-lok. Especially if they were young and had a lot to live for ahead of them. The pain of the last days coupled with the shock of the death instant can drive these souls crazy. Then some of them then become malevolent and cause pain to others who inadvertently come in contact with them. Some are just lost and wander randomly.

So if our nation decides to use the trains as hospitals there could be some issues later. The metal of the trains will all the more easily absorb the pain of the patients and the impression of their physical death instant. Some of these will naturally become haunted as some patients will die in them. Later if these trains are again used for passenger travel these will all be involved in serious accidents and more passengers travelling in them will die.

Another personal experience. In one of my postings, I had the district hospital and morgue right in the next campus from where I lived. The less said the better about this place, it was very eerily haunted. One is the people who have physically died or whose bodies are being kept there, their pain and souls stuck there. And second is the higher level negative entities, the pishachya, vetal and the even higher ones whose names I will not write in posts. These entities come to feed on the pain of the trapped souls. These entities then easily torment the people living around these areas. These areas are highly unsuitable for the living. In that same campus, the number of people committing suicides was extraordinary.

So if some of the trains are to be used as hospitals in the current coronavirus pandemic then these trains should not be used again in normal passenger service. Or if we do have to use them again for passenger travel then they should be properly ‘de-toxified’, the souls trapped in them and the pain imprinted in them should be removed by a competent tantrik, else we will see a rise in inexplicable trains accidents in the next few years.

Pisces the Paradoxical ascendent

There are three watery signs. Moveable Cancer, Fixed Scorpio and Dual-natured Pisces. When any of these signs gets placed in the ascendant, it creates a powerful personality with typical attributes. The depth of the fathomless sea, intuition, power to manipulate the astral body, access to the other dimensions etc. They are more in tune with their astral selves rather than their material selves and they all face very typical problems, which perhaps are the hardest of the lot. I have written a lot about the Cancer and Scorpio ascendants earlier, this post is about Pisces as the rising house. Pisces is an auspicious sign, but like the other two watery signs it has its own deep challenges. I have written about Moon in Pisces rashi here. And if you were born with Pisces in your 1st house, you are again the summary of the zodiac.

Jupiter owns Pisces. The Teacher of Knowledge, the one who always supports, does not let you fall, allows you gather resources for your next jump up, the resourceful, benevolent, hopeful, expansive force rules Pisces.

Then the Teacher of the Esoteric, Venus, is exalted in Pisces. This is a very important bit of information. Venus is the real Moksh-karak, the one who guides you to your deepest one-one relationship with your higher self. Read this post on Venus and Jupiter to know why Venus is exalted here and how Jupiter and Venus both support each other in their typical manner. Venus in Pisces guides the Soul to the divine and Jupiter provides the resources which will be burnt to gain that eternal experience.

And finally Mercury is debilitated in Pisces, another significant point. Mercury represents duality, the actions which lead to creation of karma and also the karmic conditions where you choose to serve or suffer in order to rebalance this karma. He is debilitated in Pisces, ie the energy of this rashi’s environment is completely unsuited to Mercury’s typical nature and activities. In Pisces, you are required to search for the universal, the one common thread linking all. Here you understand that you work not for personal gains but for the benefit of the universal good. This last sign of the zodiac is a paradox of combining completely opposite concepts which are perfectly united, fertility/ loss, movement/ stillness, duality/ nonduality, regeneration/decay, completion/start of a new cycle. The choice is yours how you use the potential energy of these attributes of Pisces, your ascendant rashi.

Pisces in the 1st house is again a bridge, you connect. You link people, situations, dimensions, consciousness, impossible odds, anything and everything can be connected by you. You are happiest and feel fulfilled when you act as the link between. Try to incorporate this concept in some way in your life, you will feel more satisfied with yourself. Pisces contains 3 lunar mansions, Poorva-bhadrapada, Uttara-bhadrapada and Revati. The Revati borns face typical problems if the exact rising degree falls in the Gandant zone, so if you are such a person, do read my posts on the Gandant and how you deal with these very typical issues.

Pisces rising gives you a soft, quiet and gentle personality. You are religious-minded and spiritual by nature and you are respected for this. You are irresistible, shy and generally very charming, cute? Your appearance and behaviour is attractive, you are kind, others are compelled to approach you, you are very attractive. Actually your astral self, as projected through your aura is very attractive, people are pulled to you because of your genuinely loving, benevolent, non-judgemental aura. They feel peace when they are close to you. You will find people confiding in you, you know secrets about everyone you know! And you never take advantage of anyone else, though others can at times take advantage of your gentle all-accepting nature.

Pisces the Paradoxical ascendent

You are generally well-off, good-natured, sympathetic, empathetic, a good listener and a good companion. Your perspective is generally original, you look at things very differently. You are very clear about family, friends, social relations and if you feel that you are required to do something for others you do it willingly. You are generally content by nature, generous, always willing to share or give.  Basically an honest, religious helpful person, your intentions are good, you wish to do good by others and you try to help others as possible. Aware of society and social behaviour, you like interacting with the large groups around you. But if you stay in large groups for long, you get uneasy as your aura gets over whelmed by so many people around you. You are not active, no hustle bustle to you. Relatively passive, you accept the situations as they come. You are rather clueless about strategising and creating conditions to for your personal advantage, rather innocent in the ways of life.

You are restless, you search, but for what?, this only you know. You are dreamy, not practical, absent minded, you forget all those things which don’t make you ‘feel’. You can seem impressionable, vague and directionless. An open mind which accepts influences, opinions and ideas like a sponge. You are changeable in your manner and behaviour. You are not objective in life but subjective. Less logic, less numbers, less hard reality and more feelings, more intuition more love. You require freedom, you like to explore, but this is more an internal freedom to ‘feel’ as you desire. You ‘feel’ your way through life. You like touching your loved one too, hugs, kisses and cuddles satisfy you. If your loved one puts restrictions on your feelings/ behaviour or disregards your intuition, this will cause problems between you two.

But one interesting thing about Pisces is this, you, after Capricorn, are the best decision-maker of the zodiac. Surprised? You are connected to your astral sum and  have intuitive sources of information which other signs cannot even fathom. You are the repository of the learnings of the entire zodiac so have a tremendous resource within you. If you are ever required to take a decision about something which touches you, you can take the best possible decision at that time, very practical and fair. But if you are not emotionally linked to the topic, if it means nothing to you, you will be vague, indecisive and your usual dreamy self. The Paradox of the Pisces!

You avoid conflict. One reason is that harsh words tear into your aura, so you get psychic attacked by the person who is arguing with you. You cannot defend yourself from astral attacks, especially if it is your loved one attacking you. In case you do not know how to repair your tattered aura, there are spirits around who dig hooks into your torn aura and suck up your energy. This aura damage causes real harm to you on all levels. Second reason is your very high emotional sensitivity. You get into an argument and the same argument comes up again later. Now you not only remember the initial argument but you remember how you felt, it is so intense that it feels like that same argument is happening again with double the associated emotions. You remember emotions! So you cannot bear intensely negative emotions or situations especially if they happen again and again.

You want an easy-going life and you enjoy whatever you have. You generally have a good house, cars etc, life is reasonably comfortable. You are quite attached to your family, siblings, spouse and children. Girlfriends/ boyfriends are quite possible and you should beware of getting into undesirable relationships before/ outside marriage. You are quite romantic in marriage and like spending time with your spouse, having close emotional bonds feels good. You like giving and receiving gifts, visible expressions of love are important to you. Married life is generally stable and happy. The spouse is generally reliable, intelligent, adaptable and practical. You are rather dreamy and impractical so your loved one is required to do all the practical stuff, like money budgeting, bank balance, major life plans etc. You follow him without question or hesitation. So marry only after matching the horoscopes and marry someone who values your love and complete trust.

Your father has an important role in your life, maybe you are attached more to him than your mother. Or you may have a spiritual father, a Sat-Guru, to whom you look up to for spiritual support. The friend-circle is good, there are intelligent and positive people here. You derive emotional comfort from these people around you. You have very deep sense of emotions. Highly aware of your and others emotions, emotional pleasure or pain touches your soul deeply. This sensitivity is the source of your creative inclinations. You generally keep your personal desires secret and channelise them through your work, you write or paint etc, express yourself in some creative way. Your creative works will have a touch of mystery and can showcase your hidden depths. You can be a professional artist if you want to. Your professional life, social mobility and social status is generally quite satisfactory.

Generally healthy, but not very robust, you tire easily. This tiredness is linked to your sensitive aura again. Best go for annual check-ups once a year after mid-life. You do not like taking medicines, there might be some drug sensitivity or allergic reactions. Your aura is weak around the feet so you can lose your energy from here. Your aura is very susceptible so follow a schedule of cleansing, grounding and shielding. This will prevent evil eye and psychic attacks, you are more prone to these than any other sign of the zodiac. You cannot resist anything which attacks or makes demands from you on any level.

During your childhood and in the young age there are typical difficulties mostly because of your sensitivity to auras and the astral planes. Children are more sensitive as it is when they are young, so this double sensitivity can cause you problems. But this is the reason why Pisces is so different. You have experienced life in all its hues through others in such a young age. These childhood issues ease out as your planets mature one after the others. You reach your complete sense of yourself in the late 40-s after which life becomes more easy and auspicious things happen to you. After this age, you are more comfortable in your own personality and this is evident in your aura. People will ask you for advice and hold your words in high esteem.

(Eg one of my sisters is a very dominant Pisces, her father was a lawyer who gave free legal advice to poor people after office-hours. These people would also come to his house for help. Their auras, the energy of their words, all very disturbed people right in the house everyday. She could sense all this but as a child did not understand what was happening to her. So she vicariously lived through so many traumas, divorces, deaths, murders, cheating, etc absorbing the energies of these twisted legal issues connected to all these people on a daily basis. She suffered alone and intensely in her childhood, but today she is truly one of the gentlest and kindest souls I know. This rather traumatic childhood experience has with time created genuine compassion in her soul.)

Now with this ascendant, there are some typical hardships which can occur suddenly without warning. One advice is to ever gamble in life. Or never take up risky ventures as you might lose your money. Another inner divide you face is your powerful belief in individuality but still you deeply believe in the unified whole. This statement can make sense to only a Pisces! This leads to a dual mindset as you are unable to choose between the material or the spiritual. On one side you want to experience the highest spiritual and on the other hand the sensory and material gratification beckons. The extent of this duality will depend on the individual horoscope, but it will exist (this existential schism is a common features of all watery sign ascendants). You might get bad advice from your siblings and friends. So before acting on such advice do ask your inner conscience. Selfishness, cruelty, immoral activities etc are bad karma, avoid them assiduously, you, Pisces, will suffer more than anyone else. You are a bit dreamy by nature, very hopeful, looking for the good in everyone else, you are too innocent to realise obvious dangers. So if you have someone genuine you trust, do take his opinion on saving money, investments etc material stuff. Be careful about giving your trust or love to anyone.

Pisces is two fish apparently swimming in opposite directions, but still always together. This curious duality actually indicates a deep singularity. These two fish swim continuously but do not go apart. This indicates your very deep struggle to hold on to your sense of self. You are hard at work to remain still, a paradox. Your duality is controlled in such a way that the Non-dual emerges. This is a very high precision thing that Pisces does. Outwardly dreamy, passive, you are hard at work within to remain absolutely still. This is the reason why this rashi is connected to Moksh. If you desire to and work hard to achieve that perfect stillness, this sign will provide you the necessary environment to attain the Eternal. There is no compulsion in Pisces, the ego is still and you are connected to the divine. You are willing to do whatever is required of you. As always you have a choice, if you choose to enjoy the Game some more, the fish can easily move apart to distort the equilibrium. Duality can reassert itself and again start a new cycle as Aries follows Pisces. Pisces acts as a bridge between Duality and the Non-dual. Or between one creation cycle and the next.

I found this image on the internet and whoever has made this, has done a lovely job. A Pisces dominated personality is Love, very loveable and eager to love, hearts sprinkled all over. I have seen that Pisces is the most non-judgemental one, he accepts anything from his loved one, without question or hesitation. And look at his mirror, Virgo with his broken heart. Virgos are so anxious about everything that they worry about love, expressions of love, falling in love, their loved one, worry so much that cannot see what their mirror Pisces is offering them, always. Thus the Virgo broken heart, a heart in such anxiety that it does not know to love, doesn’t recognise love if it is offered to him on a platter. And only a Pisces can love such a mirror, Pisces has so many extra hearts in him that he can easily make up for his loved Virgo’s broken one. But then having so many hearts can be an issue too, if a Pisces deeply loves someone with all his hearts, and then gets his hearts broken, all those hearts on his body break, this then results in unending pain for the Pisces. Sometimes being so full of love is a hard place to be.

Here is one of my very favourite songs ‘I will follow you’, I don’t know why, but to me this song somehow feels very Pisces to me..

 

Pisces the Paradoxical ascendent

Shakata yog, Moon Jupiter 6/8

I have mentioned Shakata yog in some of my earlier posts and there was a question on it, so writing a full fledged post. The Shakata yog is caused when the Moon and the Jupiter is at a the 6/8 axis. (Some astrologers consider the 2/12 axis to be problematic, but it is not much of a problem unless both are adversely afflicted by even more malefics).

The Moon travels around the zodiac in 28days so it will be in the 6/8 axis from Jupiter for about 5days in this. So about 18% people will have this, which is illogical. So the effects of Shakata yog are greatly reduced and rendered ineffectual if,

  • Either Jupiter or Moon or both are exalted or in his mooltrikon or own sign. ie if Jupiter is in Cancer, Sagittarius or Pisces or Moon is in Taurus or Cancer.
  • If either is placed in the  kendra houses, 1st, 4th, 7th, 10th.

This is then not a very common combination. There will be very limited number of people who will show the complete effect of this combination.

So let’s analyse this. The vitality of the person/ his environment will be affected. Sometimes he will face very adverse situations which will drain his mind, emotions and health. And after this hopeless despair, he will rise and gain. But he falls followed by the subsequent rise. This cycle continues for a life time.

Shakata yog, Moon Jupiter 6/8

Jupiter and Moon are two very important forces in the horoscope.

  • Moon is the agent of the mind, the sum of all your selves through time/space, the illusion of creation, emotions, mental processes, comforts, security, nurture, nourishment, your needs. The Moon controls your body’s power and also your minds strength. He is the agent in charge of the sookshma sharir or the subtle/ astral body. He is located at the Ajnya chakra ie your third eye.
  • Jupiter is the deep wisdom, hope, auspicious benefits from your past lives, blessings from the divine, your spiritual practices, the grace of the Guru, benevolence, expansion, philosophy and understanding, conducive environment for development of the higher faculties, refinement, support of your peers/patrons. He represents that part of your past lives positive karma which you have chosen to activate in this life as ‘luck’. He is located at the Swadhisthan chakra.

Moon and Jupiter together can be understood as the – karmic seeds of past lives and the possible actions of the current life coupled with the ‘luck’ you have chosen for yourself in this life. If these things work favourably with each other you will have a reasonably easy life on the material, emotional, mental, subtle etc levels.

The 6/8 axis is the most traumatic axis possible (post here). The planets caught in this axis are adversarial to each other and give uncomfortable results. Whatever is represented by them individually will give disturbing results when taken together.

  • The 6th is the karma you have chosen to resolve in this life, a burden consciously chosen at the moment of birth. Awareness of the burden does not make it less easier to bear. 6th is the house of karmic service and sufferings, karmic payback so as to say.
  • The 8th is fundamental changes in the self-identity/environment etc caused by sudden shocking traumatic events. If you use these opportunities to grow you can very fast but these events are very trying that it is difficult.

So Shakata yog can be summarised like this. The quality of the karmic seeds of past lives is a burden. The possible options for actions available to you in the current life are all traumatic. ‘Luck’ is often adverse and fails you just as you need it. This combination of Jupiter-Moon will bring blockages in progress on all levels. Check the houses and signs occupied by them to know which part of your life will be affected the most. And you have chosen this for yourself in this life. The thinking process and creative ability is dimmed as luck is often not in favour. The mind is churning away thinking and evaluating possibilities, you feel the strain. But Moon and Jupiter are both high level benefics. So whatever they do, ultimately they do not harm. The trauma that they will inflict will also have a positive effect. You might not think this to be positive at the time, but when you look back, every adversity has been like a springboard pushing you onwards.

It is the Moon, so rhythm is built-in. With each fall, there is innate potential to rise. The more deeply you fall, the higher you rise. There is a brief moment of utter despair but then you know it is over and a new cycle has begun. This combination invariably brings in spirituality. When the material life kicks you in the ass a few times, you realise that you need to find strength within. So as you rise you try to find your own self inside you, you become more self-sufficient and self reliant.

Your brothers, your uncles/aunts, your own parents, husband/wife, children all give you intense shocks from time to time which can sever your emotional or even physical connection from them. There may be episodes in life when you are completely alone, isolated from your family or the people whom you love (they may not even think about you). Just when you are at your lowest point and desperatly need help, there will be no one. There is intense mental anguish as your emotional supports are jerked away from under your feet. If you try to anchor yourself to another person, in the next cycle he will kick you away. The one whom you love the most will give you the deepest sorrow. You are forced by the rejections around you to seek new directions for your personal evolution. Your sorrow will eventually make you stop relying on others and you will try to develop your own abilities and self reliance.

You are forced to protect your own emotions and your own mind, as the jolts are very heavy. So you think very seriously, from different perspectives and often take radical steps for self-preservation. This might be thought of as head-strong, aggressive, over-reaction, negative etc behaviour by others. This behaviour will ultimately push people away, you might not be very popular in society; no social butterfly you!

Shakata yog, Moon Jupiter 6/8

Thankfully this yog gives material assets, you will be well off, considered an eminent personality in some field, you are not an ordinary person. If the house/ sign of the Moon and Jupiter are powerful in themselves, the person will do immense good for the society and wield real power over others. But there will be periodic humiliations, deprivations, obstacles and persistent personal loneliness. These trials purify the spirit and it ultimately is for a noble cause. And this combination often gives abilities of the spiritual, psychic, occult kind. The ability to control the subtler forces around you. It is latent to begin with, it takes a few cycles to become aware of them. (Shivaji Maharaj, perhaps the greatest Hindu ruler had this combination, we all learn about his life in school. A recent example is Yogi Aurobindo)

There is a possibility of disease to the eyes. The astral body can get affected, crack and aura can leak. (There is one very strange thing, if the person intensely wants his desired or loved one to come near him again, the aura becomes thinner in places and can crack/leak from there). The cyclic intense emotional drama can cause other repercussions on the physical levels depending on the individual horoscope. The person might lose control on his eating habits/ body weight. The 6th house is also of disease, debts, servitude and suffering. So all these things can be triggered from time to time. 8th also represents catastrophic changes including diseases, surgeries etc. So keep the physical health in mind and get a regular yearly check-up etc.

Most importantly do some regular spiritual practice. There is no other way of making sense of all this. The 8th is going deep within yourself, tantra, awareness, occult, the highest spiritual, coming face to face with your own secrets, getting rid of the skeletons in the closet. You have a rare opportunity here, perhaps you chose it because you were inwardly ready for a spiritual transformation. And you gain the spiritual when you sacrifice the material. And the illusions of the material are torn away rather harshly. You are the pure intellect and the impurities are being hammered out of you. Two top benefics, Moon and Jupiter will help you now. You might meet a real Sat-guru to guide you. There will be cyclic falls and rises in your spiritual practice too.  Sometimes you might feel that it is all a waste, but do not stop doing it. It is the only thing which will help direct the energies of this Shakata yog in the best possible manner.

Shakata शकट means a car or a carriage. Yog means union.

The mind is forced to leave all external things that give it support. Till it finds the support it needs within itself. It is a deeply painful process but ultimately worth it. This is the true result of the Shakata yog.

(There is someone very close to me who has this combination. It gives results in its full form as the two Jupiter and Moon occupy the 6th and the 11th house counted from the ascendant. Obviously they in the 6/8 axis among themselves.)

 

Shakata yog, Moon Jupiter 6/8

Shadows and evil eyes

Our bodies are created of 5 layers divided into 3 zones, the Sthool sharir ie the physical body the astral/ subtle body called the Sookshma sharir and the causal or the Karan sharir. All of us are consciously aware of our physical body and the material environment. Some of us are aware of the subtle energy body and the astral/ psychic energies which surround us. These energies are visible as aura or the shadows that we see at the corner of our eyes or as flashes of random lights, colors, tastes and even thoughts. And a rare few are also aware of the innermost layer of the body the Karan/ causal body.

Our subtle body is a very happening place. This energy body controlled by the Moon is very sensitive and it also provides us security and protection from the random energies floating around us. However this energy body can be attacked, pierced and openings created through which discordant energy can enter the body and cause damage (Chhaya-chhidra). This discordant energy is called the chhaya, the projection or the shadow of the attacker. Sometimes the subtle energy body is also called as a chhaya.

Evil eye’ is a generic term used for psychic attack. But the underlying mechanism is somewhat similar. Conscious negative beings are involved. There are several spirits, entities, conscious beings who are essentially noxious and who can cause energy imbalances to humans. If someone goes to areas where such spirits are active at certain particular times, then they can create openings, chhidra in his subtle energy shields and exploit him, this is the first possibility. (I am using the work chhidra or crack as this is exactly what the evil eye attack looks like on the astral levels.)

A second possibility is this. If someone’s horoscope shows Ketu’s involvement with the ascendant lord or the birth Moon and there is further affliction to the thought processes by malefics, such a person is an ideal host for these spirits. Menstruating women are also susceptible during the 5 days of the cycle, and so are young children. These people are more like involuntary hosts. These spirits attach themselves to his energy body again by creating cracks (chhidra). Now this person is capable of casting an evil eye on others because he has now become a tool for these negative energies. These spirits use his subtle body as a channel to further create cracks in others. In this process the host also shows typical symptoms of stress and exhaustion.

(I live in the Himalayas, there are wild and dangerous places still on these mountains. Here if someone falls ill, the villagers will first contact the village shaman, who will set right the person’s energy body and the illness also vanishes. If the shaman is genuine he will tell them that the problems are purely physical and then they will approach a medical professional. It might sound crazy to city-folks who have never seen spirits in action but this sort of cure happens quite frequently.)

There is a third possibility, there are such hateful people who actively call such negative beings to cause harm to others ‘black magicians’. This is negative karma and its repercussions are horrible for the one doing it but still they do it.

This overall process is commonly called ‘casting a shadow’ or putting the ‘evil eye’. The gaze is the commonest way of accessing other’s energies. And here ‘shadow’ means the ‘chhaya’ a projection which is used to send these energies to the other person.

The weak points of a person’s aura are linked to the weak planets of his horoscope. The physical body parts controlled by these planets are, as it is, quite weak so its quite easy to inflict damage on these parts. (Eg a client has leaky aura, his sole chakras leak energy. So as he sleeps he shivers internally intensely even if the room is warm. So the solution was to seal his sole chakras using Reiki every day. Taught him how to do it, it has worked for him.)

Shadows and evil eyes

Am listing out some physical symptoms which the recipient of the evil eye might feel. I had listed out the astral symptoms in my earlier posts. These are the purely physical symptoms which all of us can observe. But do remember that these are also indicative of genuine medical conditions so do refer to a medical professional. It is only if you suffer from a symptom from each of these lists that it can be attributed to an evil eye attack.

The common symptoms is a type of headache, there is generally no pain just pressure migraine, an internal pressure, pressure on the forehead, pressure in the center of the head, sense organs can be affected.

Voice timbre and pitch may change. Choking sensations and loss of breath are quite possible, you might actually gasp for breath. You run to a doctor thinking you have got asthama but the doctor gives you an all-ok calls it a psychological condition and sends you away with a pat on the head.

Then nausea, stomach upsets, cramps, noxious farts, loose motions are very common as the body tries to expel the negative energies through this physical channel.

Muscles freezing, sprains and paralysis of muscles. (This had happened to me once, someone had poked a pin in a doll, right in the neck. I could feel the thing in my neck and ultimately had to go to a senior shaman to get rid of it.)

Tiredness, general fatigue, emotional swings, hysteria, misplaced outbursts of emotions, illogical arguments, going emotionally dead to someone you love deeply, depression and general hopelessness. (I have experienced this a few times. Once this was done by someone so strong that I couldn’t see it, finally my Devi had to come and tell me that someone had cut a goat over me and then I took remedial measures.)

Dreams are quite indicative during this period. Out of body experiences, sleep paralysis, unnecessary astral travel, dreaming of getting lost in mazes, dreaming huge water bodies in an overall scary dream, leaking water, dams breaking, floods, being chased by monster animals, dreaming that you are dying but not dead. If you are in the habit of noting down your dreams you can get important information on what is happening to you on the sub-conscious and conscious levels. These sort of casting shadow stuff always shows up in dreams.

Then in the material life, losing objects, forgetting things, finding it difficult to concentrate, facing obstacles in life, frustration, losses, isolation, violence, accidents are also possible.

Once this ‘casting the shadow’ or ‘evil eye’ attack happens, it turns into a vicious vortex as negative energies invite over even more negative entities further complicating the situation.

(One person I know suffered from an attack a few years ago. Atheist types, so no pujas and no consulting shamans. A year later he developed a particularly severe cancer. Then he started consulting several astrologers/ shamans who all gave him the same reply, the negativity has now percolated fully into the physical body, only hope is a life-long medical assistance.)

Shadows and evil eyes

There are several ways to get rid of these energies. I have written about them in my several previous posts. Shielding, cleansing and grounding are the basic things which everyone should practice routinely. Recovering from the evil eye is an active process which you should take up with a strong intention.

But the essential thing is that these negative energies also have been created by the same Shiv/ Shakti duo. Thus pujas and mantra rituals for Shiv, Shakti are equally effective in getting rid of any negativity. This will also stop negative entities latching on to you or attacking you. These negative energies are a part of the universe we live in and they will always be there. Their nature is to attack and cause harm. The only thing you can and should do is improve your power. There are shamans and practitioners of ‘white magic’, genuine tantriks. The easiest way of keeping your energy shell intact is to do your regular spiritual practice. Self-defence is always the best strategy.

 

Reiki attunement, about the risks

I read a post on fb, where an expecting lady wrote that she got a Reiki attunement done during her pregnancy. Most of the responses were congratulating her, saying that its super that the child will be born psychic! One response was from someone, writing that she got her 6yr old initiated into Reiki and saying that the child is beautifully attuned to seeing emotions.

So utterly clueless.

I am a Reiki teacher so are 3 of my brothers/cousins. So I know quite well what it is and how the initiation process happens.

This is what happens during a Reiki initiation, very briefly. The teacher first cleans out his own aura and stills his mind. Then he clears the room/space by whichever cleansing method he prefers. He calls on the Reiki teachers of the past and requests help from his own source of faith also. Next is to clean out the aura of the student. Then the energy level of the student is brought to the level of the teacher. The aura of the student is ‘opened’ using specific Reiki symbols. The Reiki symbols give access to the energy system of the student. The chakras are accessed and the symbols to be given in the initiation are inserted inside them. The energy body of the student now changes, the flow of vital energy changes its ‘flavour’. The chakras of the hands are opened so that the symbols get connected here too. The entire thing is now sealed. Then the aura is closed and the initiation is done.

After initiation, the energy flow in the body alters significantly and this change is permanent. Even if there is some problem with the teacher, the space or the student, the symbols always work. The initiation will be successful but the overall experience will become uneasy and this will have a subtle impact on the student’s energy self. And then after the initiation is complete, the teacher gives his blessings to the student. During initiation the teacher generally gets a message from the Universe/Reiki which he tells the student. This message is very important and brings about a deep change in the mind-set of the student. This is generally linked to some significant event/issue from the student’s past lives.

The Gayatri mantra

There are a few important points which have to be understood here. It is assumed that the teacher knows these things. But the problem is with such a proliferation of energy-teachers and healers you cannot be sure if the teacher really knows what he is doing. And it is important that the student understands these things.

First of all the teacher.

The teacher should be someone who is doing his own spiritual practice and is able to still his mind. He should be of a higher energy level that the student. If your personal energy is higher than that of the teacher it will be quite an uneasy experience for you.(Long ago, one of my Dad’s friends was insisting he learn Reiki from him. Dad was not interested but as I was sitting in the room, he casually asked me if he should learn energy-healing from him. I was in school and didn’t know what ‘learning Reiki’ meant. But it was obvious that Dad was huge on the energy levels and his friend was nothing. I said no! so strongly that I still remember that incident till now.)

Then getting a really knowledgeable teacher who understands what he is doing can be quite difficult. I would never do initiation for someone who is not 18yrs of age. During initiation, I am manipulating someone’s aura in a very deep way. Actually inserting intentions ie the symbols inside the chakras! The aura is protection, its job is to filter everything from the physical universe before letting it within. Opening someone’s aura is making him so deeply vulnerable, I cannot describe it in words. The direct access to the chakras is another extremely sensitive step. So the student should be an adult, he should understand what is being done and then he should agree. The mental state of the teacher is very important. If he is personally upset, the process will be affected, eg if he is unwell or has had an argument with someone etc. Also if by ill-luck you meet an unscrupulous teacher, he can implant suggestions inside your aura in your chakras. So do a through check on the Reiki teacher first.

Second is the space.

Initiation is to be avoided when the atmosphere is heavy with energy. Eg a rainy day with thunder and lightning. Or on full-moon or no-moon nights or the dark fortnight of the Bhadrapad month (pitru-paksh) when the spirits are more active. Or twilights and eclipses. Avoid such days of dense energies. This is the teacher’s duty to check if the environment is conducive.

Third is you, the student.

This is attunement, you are getting a new type of energy to resonate in your energy body, so you should prepare your body, mind and soul for this new energy modality. This means asking the teacher all that you want to know, in addition to what the teacher is teaching. Ask questions. Learn about the process and how you can use this energy later. At least for a week before you have your initiation scheduled, do some mediation, deep breathing exercises, eat light food, avoid alcohol and stimulants. This will ensure that you will be able to make the most of the initiation process.

For women.

There is a constraint, no initiation on the 5 days of the monthly cycle. The chakras are moving in the anti-clockwise direction at this time. No initiation when expecting. A pregnant lady should not do anything to her energy body while she is expecting and at least for 3 months after the baby is born. She should not be sitting on her Asan, no Dhyan, no manipulation of pran, no attunements of any healing modality or anything that causes any change to her energy body. During pregnancy the baby-soul moves into the astral body of the mother and is aware of everything that is happening to the mother on every level, physical, astral, psychic, energy etc. Being made in the womb is a rather painful process, the body of the baby is being formed/ broken/ re-formed and it causes pain. However the baby-soul links itself to the mother and draws support from her in every way. The mother should not give the baby-soul any energy shocks. When her aura, her chakras and her energies are get manipulated the unborn child is also affected.

The Gayatri mantra

Then children.

A child should never be exposed to any sort of energy surges or any intentional modification in his energy channels/chakras. A child is still in the process of development. Till the age of 14 – 16yrs, ie till the child attains physical maturity he/she is still being formed, the energy channels are still delicate and fragile. (18yrs onwards is best, full growth is done with and he is an adult now). Anything out of the ordinary in the childhood will cause energy fluctuations in his body which will have effects on his pran-mai-kosh/ subtle body and can carry on to the next life too. A child till the age of 7yrs is on the border-line, he has not yet completely forgotten his past life and neither has he begun to fully identify himself with his present personality. He still retains the ability to sense the psychic, the astral realms. If in this unformed state you push an attunement on his energy body it can cause very deep seated problems.

Children can see auras, energy, spirits and ‘other’ things, but as a non-intentional ability, mainly for self protection. (eg I have a pleasant, high energy aura, random babies look at me, smile at me and come to me without a murmur. One of my past driver had a grey-streaked aura, my son never could sit in the car when he was driving.) This ability to sense the astral dimensions disappears naturally at 3-6yrs of age. Now if you make the child aware about these things, he can start using it consciously and eventually attract predatory entities etc.

Children give their energy very easily. (eg I have a 1.5yr old baby nephew whom I love dearly and he too adores me. I was talking to my brother on the phone. He was playing with the baby as he talked to me. I was telling him that I had a very busy day and was exhausted. And in 2 mins I got hit with a huge ball of healing energy, felt better instantly! Energy of a new ‘flavour’. I asked him who had sent it, it was not his ‘flavour’. He gave a surprising answer, that the baby had sent it. Baby must have sensed my brother’s aura/feelings about me being exhausted and as he loves me deeply he immediately sent the healing!) If you initiate your child into any energy healing modality, he can give without being aware of it. This can be very dangerous.

Then we, in our cities, are surrounded by negative energies, sick depressed people, unsavoury thoughts in the mind, in addition to the regular spirits, ghosts etc. Why make your child see these things consciously? The child cannot stop seeing now. he will see it all the time! There is a reason why this ability to see the psychic is lost at age 3-6yrs, it is not for everyone. If you work with energy realise that you are required by karma to do so. It is nothing very exciting or special. It is just work, like anything else. Sometimes it is quite helpful, but sometimes it becomes a burden. Intentionally modifying the energy channels of a child and an unborn baby when he has no say in the matter and does not understand what is happening is a crime. 

(One of my brothers never lost the ability to see the astral and its energies. In his 20’s, something cryptic happened which took away his ability to see energy. Now he could still sense but not see the psychic energy with his eyes. He saw me then, he took my hands in his and looked very intently saying all the time in wonder, ‘this is how you look physically!’. Till that day he used to just see my aura enveloping me and not my physical self clearly. That was the day I really understood how difficult these extra-abilities can be.)

The pregnant lady went and got herself attuned and so did the 6yr old child, presumably they did not really understand the process. And the teacher too allowed and participated in this highly unethical Reiki initiation.

Working with energy is not for everyone. It does sound very exciting but it is quite serious. There are several healing modalities like Reiki, magnified healing etc. So if you do choose to take up energy work and get initiated into something do think twice about why you are doing it. What is your objective. Then do research about the credentials of the teacher. And then prepare yourself so that you can make the most of the experience.

 

Psychic attacks, how do they happen?

This is rather serious topic as psychic attacks are a criminal act. They may be malevolent or unintentional, slow draining or fast acting or whatever but they damage the victim. They drain the vitality of the victim, make him ill, either physically or mentally, hurt him emotionally, subdue his spirit, cause him losses, control his will and in some cases can even kill.

We actually live in a maelstrom of invisible forces. We do not perceive these forces but they affect us deeply. Most of us are thankfully unaware of this aspect of our life. Our limited senses are incapable of registering these forces. And strangely our ignorance actually protects us. But sometimes these forces rise up and swamp us. These forces link up on the astral levels first and then percolate into the physical body. The victim is is hurt from the inside out! This takes several months to heal completely depending on the intensity of the hurt.

Psychic attacks, how do they happen?

Here are a few scenarios where psychic attack is possible,

You might go to a place where such invisible forces are concentrated. This happens very commonly, eg haunted houses or cemeteries especially where bodies are buried. Or houses built on sites which have seen traumatic events in the past. Or even sites of our ancient temples which were desecrated and destroyed by the invaders. Here the astral dimensions are especially strong, dense, concentrated. Susceptible people should stay away from such places, the interference from the astral planes can hurt. I use the word ‘interference’. Mostly these incidents are not deliberate with malevolent intentions. The spirit forces may be curious or in panic themselves. (My son was about 8yrs old when he first saw a tree being cut. It was an old massive tree over 150yrs old. We had to wait for some 10mins as a branch had fallen across and blocked the road. Every tree has spirits living on it. This old giant was being killed systematically and was radiating its pain. Its resident spirits were upset. Death is quite interesting so other entities had come to watch. The disturbance on the astral levels was unbelievable. My son started crying uncontrollably, affected by all this. My husband later cleaned/shielded him as a few curious spirits had followed him home…)

Generally children are susceptible as they are more aware of these invisible forces. Babies are most sensitive. Then in some families these abilities are ‘inherited’. These families are also more linked to the astral forces thus can sense them. e.g. I have seen that in such families, Rahu/ Ketu are significantly placed and control a major part of the personality and environment. However even if someone can sense them, they may not have the mental strength or skill to manage them. One of my aunts can ‘see’ a lot of stuff but it scares her badly.

Then another scenario. You might meet people who are linked to such forces, and this affects you on the internal levels, upsetting you. People who actively perform rituals linked to the astral dimensions have a very strong dense overpowering aura. If the energies being invoked are positive you feel relaxed with such people. But if the person is doing energy work with negative intentions or doing the rituals wrong, or has spirits bound to him as his slaves, etc his aura feels suffocative and pulls at your energy. (Once my brother took me to meet one of his Tarot teachers. A good-natured woman, she surprise-hugged me as we left. In this 2-sec hug she stripped my aura off. As we got in the car, I started uncontrollably crying/shivering, body went cold. My brother saw what had happened and set me right, but in these few minutes I experienced what a psychic attack can really mean! She was doing some strange mantra jaap, was recently divorced, stressed out. Her own energy was depleted and she unconsciously pulled out mine to replenish hers.)

Psychic attacks, how do they happen?

Another possibility is that you meet someone suffering because of psychic attacks and this suffering links with you. This can drain you too. Often you will get clients with this sort of pain. Be very careful about your interactions with them. Remember to cut cords and do a complete cleansing and protection of yourself and your office. Never allow clients at your actual residence with their problems.

People often get interested in these invisible forces and perform minor cleansing or protecting rituals. Mostly they are quite unskilled and unaware, so cannot call on the really big energies. So they remain safe by their own lack of skill. But it is possible that someone, by ill-luck or wrong guidance, gets into more than he can handle. This is then serious trouble. This danger is also quite common among the serious practitioners. So even if you have books like ‘Goetic spirits‘ do be very careful in doing any of the rituals described in it.

Then another way you get involved in the invisible world is this. You buy something, a curio or pre-owned book or object of ‘magic’ and it turns out to be actually charged with negative energy. Antiques or objects used by people in the past or symbols linked to other faiths of which one does not have sufficient information etc carry psychic traces from their previous owners and faith-associations. Better avoid bringing such objects/images into your house.

Some attacks may be slow and subtle. These can go on for quite some time making you miserable, upset, physically ill and no definitive diagnosis. And some attacks may be quick and fast acting. Either way it is a terrible experience.

If you are under a psychic attack some of the effects that you might experience are,

A heavy weight pressing you as you sleep. Nervous exhaustion and deep fear. Cannot sleep, physical exhaustion, unknown reason for ‘wasting’ away, mental breakdown. As you are denied deep sleep your body/ mind/ soul suffers. Sleep paralysis is common, as you dream and suddenly are jerked awake. Frequent dreams of being buried, tied up, snakes, ghosts, cemeteries, nightmares etc. There might be bruises on the body or seizures/ fits in rare extreme cases. Seeing a darkness from the corners of your eyes. Cold drafts in the house, your hair standing on end. Filthy smells from certain locations in the house. Hearing random thuds and sounds. (Just a couple of weeks ago. I live in a large bungalow with sloping tin roofs. It was raining heavily and around midnight, there were heavy thuds on the roof, as if an elephant was walking on it. My house is well-shielded so jumping on the roofs was all that it could do!). Manipulating elements like this can get dangerous as things may set on fire, electrical equipment may short, etc. Now there could be a perfectly material explanation for some of these things, and sometimes there is too. But the possibility of the occult should not be ignored especially if you are seeing multiple symptoms together.

Psychic attack can be of two types, intentional and unintentional.

One in which the perpetrator is unaware of what he is doing. Someone may be so emotionally hurt that he lashes out with pain. The intention to hurt gets powered by the pain and actually causes harm. (I had one client who married against his mother’s wishes, the mother was emotionally hurt. Her emotions against her son, turned into actual astral black ‘arrows’. I saw them embedded in his back, he was severely ill but the doctors could not find the reason. The reason was the ‘arrows’. It was an intense psychic attack and both were unaware of what had really happened.)

Another case, here the perpetrator is personally under the influence of negative energy and literally begs a higher energy individual for help. My brothers and I have suffered this several times. (One of my brothers travels by train everyday, so is in physical contact with several random people. He does his own pujas and has a very high level of energy but is always drained. He gives it away to all these depleted people who brush against him as his travels! )

For these type of unintentional astral attacks the only solution is to shield yourself, cleanse yourself and ground yourself regularly. Do your spiritual practice regularly to keep yourself charged up. Also minimise physical contact with random people.

Psychic attacks, how do they happen?

The second type of psychic attack is actually criminal. It is intentional and designed to harm the victim. Also called ‘black magic’. There are several rituals used for creating such attack energies. Commonly a blood sacrifice is performed by the practitioner, black goats and black cockerels are the favoured sacrifices. Location can be cemeteries, boundaries of towns, isolated places, river-banks etc. And during the no-moon nights or twilight. The energy of death is linked to the negative intentions and sent to the target victim. The first thing that happens is that the victim is unable to understand what is happening to him. He is ‘blindfolded’, so that the negativity does not register. Then he argues with all those people who might help him recover. He is isolated and then the second part where he is actually hurt plays out. (Once I  was caught in a mental fog, body broke down, was unable to meet with my brothers who could have helped me, my husband got too busy with his work not-at-home types. It took a full 2 months to really understand what was happening and to clean it out.)

I and my family members have suffered through such attacks several times. So when I write these posts, it is from personal experience. Sometimes I do think twice about writing these off-beat things. But then there are two ways of looking at it, someone may be inspired to attack and someone might learn how to protect himself from such attacks. It is my karma to write all that I know. So what you make of these posts, Dear Reader, it is between you and your conscience.

(In my next post will write about few easy ways of protecting yourself from such attacks.)

 

Vastu your home, the simplest and prettiest remedies

Our houses are our shelters, our homes, we live, eat, sleep and rest here. It is very important that we take care of our home so it can, in turn, take care of us. ‘Vastu’ means not just the physical house, but conscious energy and it’s flow in your house. The house takes on the energy of the place that it is in, and also the energy of the people living in it. I have written about houses in some of my earlier posts. Ley lines, one about haunted houses and how to interact with your house etc.

Vastu-shastra is the science of ‘living houses’, the energy of the house should be conducive to the people living in it, Houses built as per vastu-shastra are more full of positive energies. But today getting a house with perfect Vastu is quite impossible. I have lived in several houses in my life and every one of these had some issues. e.g one had a toilet in the north direction, had to demolish it; one had the kitchen in the north, we couldn’t eat anything prepared in this kitchen, had to demolish it and construct a new one in the south-east. But luckily I always lived in houses not apartments so could do the re-alignments. But if you live in apartments you cannot realign the rooms, you have turn to Vastu remedies.

Keeping your home neat and clean is one thing, am sure all of us do the dusting, brushing and washing up quite regularly. But there is more. Here are the simplest remedies, which you can use in your house. These are beautiful things which will be ornamental as well as help you rebalance the energy of your house.

Pyramids

These are the most popular ways to rebalance the energies of your house. I keep a small clear quartz pyramid in every room of my house, on the north or east side is best. It works by balancing the energies of the room and also amplifying them, two-in-one. I recharge them once a month, by washing them in salt water and recite the Shri sukta over them. But then I love the Shri Sukta, so use it for everything, I recite it even when I cook food. You can use any Vastu mantra or even a simple ‘Om Vastupurushaya namah’ or even play this by Uma mohan in the background in your house. Or you can use any Vedic mantra including the Gayatri mantra to recharge these pyramids. Or if you cannot for any reason recite these, make a chi-ball, think of your source of faith, express your intention for a happy and energy-filled house in your words and visualise the chi-ball being absorbed in the pyramids. This always works.

When you go to buy the pyramids, hold them in your hands for a bit, some will feel ‘right’ to you, buy those. There are various sorts of ‘energised’ pyramids available in the market, you can use these too, but they will be a bit more expensive than this single pyramid method above.

Mirrors

Mirrors are a variant of the pyramids. The sides of the pyramids reflect energy in four directions, mirrors also reflect energy but in one single direction. Hang your mirrors on the east and north walls as possible. Just remember they should not reflect your bed as you sleep in it.

Sea-salt 

Wipe your house with water in which a fistful of sea-salt has been dissolved, it will remove the negativity. Cleansing your house regularly will address a lot of problems associated with misaligned energies too. And if there is any specific corner of your house which feels especially misaligned, keep a glass bowl full of sea-salt crystals in that part of the house, these crystals will absorb the negativity. You can dispose them in running water and replace them once a month.

Tumbled clear quartz

I love clear quartz. It is useful for everything. If you want, you can buy a bag-full of tumbled clear quartz, will be cheaper than the pyramids. Then charge them. Make a chi-ball, focus on your intention for a happy house and visualise the chi-ball being absorbed in the crystals. Keep them in a pretty bowl in your rooms, in the north and east sides. Recharge them once a month. If you feel like you can also use pink quartz. Tumbled crystals can be used for several things so if you buy a bag-full you can use them in several ways.

Vastu your home, the simplest and prettiest remedies

Peacock feathers –

These work beautifully. Have written about them in my post on ley lines. Put a bunch of these in your rooms preferably on the north and east sides if possible. Peacock feathers will get rid of evil eyes, negativity and enhance the positive flow of energy in your house.

Shri-yantra or Meru

This is the ultimate geometry and if you are doing a puja of this geometry or using it for your spiritual practice e.g. tratak, the energies of your house will be already in a very good shape. The highly positive energy of the geometry expands out. If you do puja over it sincerely, these energies are amplified even more. I have observed that the energies of my house are so relaxing that guests start feeling sleepy!

And puja of the Meru /Shri Yantra is very simple, recite the Shri-sukta once, or recite ‘Om Shridevyai namah once/thrice/108 times, and apply one tilak of red Kesar/saffron or red vermillion at its center dot/bindu. If you can blow the conch during this puja, it will be even better. I light camphor arti after the pujas and also keep a sesame oil lamp lit in front of my Meru 24×7.

Plants

Indians, Hindus are required to keep a Tulasi plant in the center of the house. You can keep it in the east or north direction as an alternative. This plant is linked to Shri Vishnu, the energy which protects and maintains prosperity. It is satvic in nature and generates a very bright silvery/gold aura around it. The woman of the house takes care of it. i.e. waters it in the morning and lights a small lamp in front of it in the evening. If she does it with love and positive intentions the plant also responds by increasing its energy, thus the whole house benefits. It is another way of harnessing your intentions. As the plant grows so does prosperity. The plant is highly medicinal, especially for cough/cold, drinking a tea made of its leaves is very helpful. You can drink a spoonful of the juice of the leaves. I never give my son cough syrups, as tulasi leaves are the best and safest cure.

Fresh cut flowers are also a good way to increase the energy of your house if you can afford them.

In India, we tie a garland made of fresh mango leaves and marigold flowers on the entrance door of the house. Both these are high energy items and they stop the negative energies from entering your house in the first place. This arrangement is called a ‘toran’.

Rudraksh beads

This is something which you can consider if you are suffering from negative energy as well as evil eye from others. Hang a single rudraksh bead at your front door, it will stop negative influences from entering your house. (I hang an entire rudraksh mala at my front door.)

Photos

These are a very easy way to add cheer and positivity to your house. Natural sceneries, waterfalls, flowers, bright images, colorful pictures, geometric patterns, can be hung on your north or east walls.  You can use pictures of solid things like mountains, e.g. Kailash, on your south or west walls. Do not use depressing and dark images which represent struggle, disaster and pain. Also avoid pictures of animals. If you want, you can keep pictures of departed parents/loved ones, but only on the south walls.

To keep the Vastu of your house is good shape requires not only physical alignment with the Vastu shastra, but also requires that you consciously interact with your abode. The process of of building the house and the alignment of the rooms is not in our hands, as most of us live in apartments now! But this second part where you consciously increase the energy of your house is definitely something you can do!

So here were a few easy and inexpensive ways in which you can add energy to your home.
