Things that work…

Jyotish is about working with the energies of yourself as depicted in your horoscope. Energy can be balanced, transmuted, made to change its direction, it can be intensified or its perceived negative effects ameliorated. But how? For doing anything with energy you need two things, first and all-important is your Intention and the second is the yantra-mantra-tantra, i.e. the tool, the words to activate the tool and the knowledge to use the tools.

I had written about remedies earlier too, but there was a question on gemstones so writing some more.

If your Intention is strong enough you don’t need yantra-mantra-tantra. You can work directly with your mind, real enlightened Gurus do this, the words they utter is ‘ashirwad’. it comes true. But most of us are quite low level in this sense and so we need to support our intentions. Always remember, what works is your Intention, you manifest your thoughts, and the yantra-mantra-tantra help by powering and focussing your intention.

So you can use the following,

Beej mantrasrecited on the day of the week of the concerned planet, 108 times a day. The easiest and best method. But you need to have the time and pronounce the mantra correctly. Its very soothing for the mind so try it with the Gayatri mantra sometime if you feel like it.

Homa – If you have some background of doing yadnyas e.g agnihotra, or it appeals to you, you can do a homa using your chosen mantra for general health or as a planetary remedy and use the vibhuti. Vibhuti that we make however has a time-limit to its potency. I have seen that it lasts for about 15days. (Vibhuti given by enlightened Gurus has no time-limit on potency). And the effect of doing the Homa in the house is fantastic, it clears out the negative energy and makes the house very light and pleasant.

Making talismans – you can stuff this vibhuti in a silver locket and wear it. This lasts for quite some time and when it loses its potency it gets lost or just breaks on its own! It is quite effective.

Gemstones – These always work. If you get a good astrologer to recommend it. Generally the yogkarak planets for the ascendant sign or the 1st, 5th, 9th house lords are good enough, so are recommended generically. And then they also tend to scare their clients, rather than presenting the remedy as an enabling tool. Next you need to find a good jeweller to locate a genuine gemstone. And you need to charge it with their mantras, either yourself or through the astrologer. See gemstones are energy batteries, they store energy and your body uses this battery to recharge itself. For an average person, depending on the quality of the gemstone, if you do the initial puja with full intention it will work as your battery for quite a long time. You can do your mantra puja on the gemstone then once a month or get your astrologer to do it for you at intervals. But it should be done with the intention of recharging it so that it helps you. If you are scared or dubious of the remedy itself, it will not work. Your intention is the main thing.

I have been using gemstones in rings and in navgraha pendants since my college days and they always work because I do the mantra pujas and keep on recharging them. If you work in energy or you are a tantrik or a Jyotishi you need lots of backup. My brother wears them too, he prefers rings, changes them as per the transits even for the faster moving planet transits.

Gemstones are by far the most expensive remedy not everyone can afford them, so I hesitate in recommending them for general clients, I have written on this earlier too.

  • These are just energy batteries, if you don’t charge them with your intention and mantras they will not work.
  • If your astrologer recommends a wrong stone, it will not work.
  • Now this, most astrologers will recommend a stone from your birth chart, its fine they will work. But for planets like Saturn, Rahu and Ketu the transit charts and the ongoing dashas should also be considered. These are rarely life-time stones! Even for the other planets, it is possible that you are required to wear them only during certain transit periods not for the life-time. But generally professional astrologers do not recommend to this level.
  • Artificial or lab-created stones or glass will not work, your jeweller has cheated you then. They have to come from the earth to work.
  • And finally if your Intention is not clear, or if you are scared of your own energy, nothing will work.

Crystals – or secondary gemstones – these also work. But as the quality is quite low you will need to wear larger crystals or recharge them very frequently. However these are very useful can be used to make grids, for cleaning out a space, etc so use them! I often use these.

Gold, silver or copper metals are great at absorbing energy, Recite your planet’s beej mantra over your jewellery and wear it! I recommend this kada/bracelet made of silver/copper/gold, it is expensive but I feel that spending money on the kada is more effective than spending the same amount on a gemstone, if you want you can resell the precious metals for the same price at least. (Gemstones have no resale value and you cannot wear gemstones worn by other people.)

As a remedy, you can use water or even food, recite the relevant mantra over it and eat it! The Prasadam that we get in temples works on this principle. You can do this at home too.

So if you choose a remedy, remember your mind is the main thing. If you intend your wish it will be done. If you are scared or scoff at it, it will not. The energy of your thought is all important the rest of it, yantra, mantra, tantra is all the supporting system.

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.

Do astrological remedies work?

Back to Jyotish! Astrologers get cynics and pessimists quite often. ‘It is my fate to suffer, nothing I can do can change it’. And then more commonly, ‘Astrological remedies are just hogwash, if they worked all the astrologers would be millionaires!’.

pexels-photo-69896.jpeg

Horoscope is basically your energy chart. There are always some balanced and some unbalanced areas in this chart. It is an overall chart and your overall life is actually just an average. Some experiences dip below into negativity and some soar above the mean-line into ecstasy. Life is a series of curves, where we experience positive and negative energies as we go along time. But if you observe carefully, both the positive and negative energies are perfectly cancelled out. There is no excess positivity or excess negativity it is all a perfect balance oscillating around a straight line. E.g. The 6th8th, 12th  houses will be the source of all your unbalances. The 1st and 11th in all situations will support. Then there are the planetary forces, malefics are going to dis-balance the chart and benefics will provide stability and balance wherever possible. Finally energy is energy, you can manipulate it or redirect it with your Intention and Will but you cannot destroy it.

So stripped of the mumbo-jumbo, remedies are ways in which you can take control of your own energies. And they will work to the extent you want them to work. Always remember you are in control of yourself. Do not give your power in someone else’s hands ever (that is being a slave to someone).

A favourite example, one young woman wanted to get married, a good horoscope and family background, but there were no real proposals. She had in the latest fashion been wearing her hair in a short crop. The easiest remedy was advising her to grow out her hair and expressing her feminine self. She got married by the time her hair grew out to below her shoulders! Attract the energies you want to manifest. Don’t get overwhelmed and feel scared to work with energy. Manifestation is not difficult at all, it is the simplest thing possible.boy holding clear umbrellaMost astrologers will recommend expensive pujas or gemstones or something which will require money. They are useful of course. But getting the correct stuff you need to perform the pujas is now quite impossible. Gemstones are excellent energy-batteries but first you need to find the stones of the required energy levels, then you need to know how to use them.

(Gemstones can be very sweet if you can use them. And know when to charge them and then remove them. Over the years, I have experimented with the stones I knew would work for me. I first wore a cats-eye when I was 16yrs old. Then a Ruby, drained the ruby completely, one day it just went ‘dead’ so removed it. Wore just the Cats-eye, then wore a new Ruby removed it too. Used this Ruby and Catseye combination for 20yrs. But after I turned 36yrs of age, wore a Blue Sapphire with an emerald. The emerald could not cope so drained and ‘died’ eventually. Paired the blue sapphire with a moonstone. Used up the moon-stone. Finally wore the cats-eye with the blue sapphire. Also wore a navratna pendant. Each gemstone works during the time/Dasha of the planet associated with it. I love doing pujas and mantras for charging the stones. My mini-batteries stones, gemstones and crystals are very useful but they are quite expensive. If you want to work with stones, start with crystals like in this post. I also wear Rudrakshs when performing my puja/dhyan.)

But on the whole, I prefer to address the energy issues themselves. If the client can work on himself it is the best option!

  1. Reciting the beej mantras of the unbalanced planets, posted it here.
  2. Doing charity thus reducing the impact of their unbalance
  3. Attracting what you want, thus boosting your energies.

If you believe in Sanskrit and Mantras, the best remedy by far is the beej mantra of the planet which has erratic energies in your horoscope. The planets represent your own energies so when you recite the mantra you are using the energies of sound, intention and willingly changing yourself. It is the best option because you are working for your own self. It is empowering you, you are not depending on a gemstone, a pujari, an astrologer or anyone. Reciting the beej mantras also improves your concentration and silences your mind. Later this will help you in case you start a spiritual practice. And it will energise that part of your horoscope which needs the energy boost, a very targeted approach.woman standing beside treesDoing charity or helping others who genuinely need is a perfect option for those who are not so much into Tantra/Mantra/Yantra! This does not mean giving money to beggars. The intention is important. Giving millions of money away or starting a charitable foundation does not really work. Actual involvement on an internal level is necessary. You are giving away, so cannot expect something in return. It is a gift from the heart, a sort of forgiveness. When you see others in the process of re-balancing their karmic load you appreciate your own situation better. I always recommend helping out at old-age homes as a remedy for Saturn, it is the kindest way you can heal your own personal Saturn’s unbalanced energies. Be kind to yourself and help those around you who are in genuine need. It sounds strange but it works. You get kindness in return.

Be compassionate, do not empathise or sympathise these emotions might trap you. You should desire that the other person be free from his painful situation and find happiness for himself. Recognising that the person you are helping is also a spark of the divine and appreciating his efforts in resolving his karma is all that you need to do. e.g if you go and distribute sweets/fruits at an orphanage wait in the background while their caretakers distribute the sweets/fruits. Observe the happiness in the tiny faces, feel their happiness and warmth. Appreciate their innocence, that despite being in such a situation they are enjoying themselves. Put in a thought of gratitude to the Universe that their capacity to find joy remains intact. Intend happiness to all, bless the children mentally and quietly come away. You have done a selfless charity of compassion. You do not have to take on these painful emotions of others. Do not become an empath and create actual cords of energy between yourself and the persons you are helping.

Charity is also re-directing energy with kindness. I have seen this several times. If a family cannot get a good match for their daughter/son and if they can afford it, I recommend that they contribute to the marriage expenses of any poor young woman they know of. Maybe their maid-servant’s daughter. And soon their own problem gets resolved.pexels-photo-1078058.jpegFinally the question, if astrologers can predict the future why are they not millionaires themselves! A sensible astrologer knows the deeper realities of life, the after-life and so many things which cannot be put in words. We get to see so many examples/clients where the laws of karma operate. Us astrologers know that in our charts the 6th 10th and 12th houses indicate that we are required by karma to use our energies to serve the society! We repay our karmic debts by talking, counselling and listening. This is our form of charity and service. Nothing can compare to the satisfaction of Karma being balanced beautifully! 

No one escapes the need to Serve, the domain of the 6th house. But there are several ways where you can choose to be happy even in the most difficult of circumstances. Choose to be happy and the rest will fall in place automatically. Remedies work as a channel for your mind to focus on and Heal yourself.

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!

pexels-photo-164571.jpeg

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.

bulk crystals

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.

This is how your really should use sea salt

The sea is indeed so bountiful, it provides us with everything, from being a reservoir of water, food, wind, sea currents and anything you might think of. And for those who can see auras, the energy of the sea is very positive and healing in nature.https://psychologicallyastrology.comAnd that brings us to the most familiar gift from the sea right in our kitchens, sea salt. A simple process of evaporating sea water in salt pans and we get the salt. But no, we humans have managed to mess up this gift from the sea and today the cooking sea salt “refined salt” available with your grocer is devoid of energy and totally worthless for consumption. But we have been conditioned to believe that “refined”, “with added minerals”, “free flowing” and what-not is actually good. So we are stuck with our refined salt filled with anticaking agents, titanium di oxide and other unnecessary and even toxic chemicals.

I remember as a child in the 1980s, my mom would buy a kitchen salt that was slightly greyish white, crystals and would get damp in the monsoons. And it tasted not purely salty but tasty. I could suck on a crystal like it were a boiled sweet loving the taste. Then somehow refined salt made its entry in my kitchen and I forgot how sea salt really tasted like. Then a few years ago I remembered and searched my local grocers for this sea salt of my childhood. Of course I did not find it in shops, as they all sold refined salt. But then I managed to locate this “samudri” salt  (samudra is sea in Sanskrit) in a shop that sold supplies for cattle nutritional supplements. At least the cattle are getting the benefits of pure sea salt.https://psychologicallyastrology.comSo now lets see what all sea salt can be used for, first obviously as a table salt and in your kitchen will add the natural salt taste to your food.

Then for cleansing the aura, do this once a week on a Saturday or a Tuesday. Use a natural crystalline sea salt for this, not ‘refined free flowing salt’.

  1. Take a fistful of sea salt in your right hand and move it around your own head in a clockwise manner seven times. Then throw the salt in the sink turn on the water and let it dissolve down the drain.
  2. If you want to soak your feet in a bucket of warm water once a week, put a fistful of seasalt in this water. Ensure that the water reaches upto your calves and do not touch your feet to each other, relax for 15 mins. Visualise all your stress draining into the water. Dispose off the water carefully in the toilet without splashing it everywhere.
  3. If you are really low, you can wrap a fistful of sea salt in a cotton kerchief and keep it under your pillow overnight. In the morning carefully wash off the kerchief under running water. Dont drop the used salt let it dissolve completely and down the drain.

As a SOS. If you are really really low. Like if you are bone tired but have to go to office. Take a fistful of seasalt wrap it carefully in a cotton kerchief, tie a few knots so that it doesn’t spill. Keep it in your pocket throughout the day and then after you are done wash it off carefully. But remember this is a SOS not a daily thing to do.

And once a week or as you feel like, mix a fistful of salt in the water you use for cleaning your house floors and and wipe them out. This will remove all the negative energy residue that gets accumulated in the house. I am reminded of one incident, one of my clients young son had an imaginary friend who looked like “chhota bhim”/a cartoon character, it was a highly high level negative entity who had “befriended” the child. My client had a very big house and the child had a personal loft in their bedroom where he would sometimes read or play alone, his personal space. When we understood what was happening, my brother and I cleaned out the house and counselled the child against talking to strange entities even if they look like his favourite cartoon. Still for the next few days the child would say that the ‘chhota bhim’ is calling him. It was strange as we had “cleaned” the house thoroughly. So we asked the mother (she really loved the child best, maternal energy is quite powerful) to wipe out the child’s personal play space, the loft with salt water. She did it and then, the entire bedroom and the house “shook”, there was an unbearable stench and the mothers arms were in pain. But it was worth it, as the child then stopped hearing the voices, life went back to normal.

So salt is a very useful item, use it often to replenish your energies and clean out your houses and auras but always with a deep intention and a heart filled with gratitude.

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.
