Agnihotra Homa to harness the Sun’s power

I do the Agnihotra homa everyday at every sun-rise and sun-set. The most important thing is the timing. The exact time of sunrise and sunset is critical. If you miss this time, then this is not an Agnihotra Homa. And it is the easiest way in which you can gain energy for yourself and your house/ surroundings. The simplest Homa possible.

A very brief post on how you do it.

Things you will need,

  • Copper pyramidal homa kund – it has to be copper as copper is linked to heat and can transmit the energies most effectively. The pyramidal shape amplified the energies produced in the Agnihotra.

  • A small copper bowl to keep the ghee (clarified butter). A copper spoon of this specific shape below.

This above is the correct shape of the spoon but if you cannot get it in this shape then you can use this one below as a second option. But it should be made of copper.

  • Rice grains –  unpolished, whole, raw, white colored rice grains. Rice grains have a very nigh ability to absorb energy. So raw rice is called ‘Akshata’ which means unbroken or indestructible.
  • Ghee made of desi cow milk (post here) (The desi cow has a prominent hump, a prominent Surya-Ketu nadi, a prominent fold of skin under its neck, a oily skin, tail touching till the ground etc. They give A2 milk which is a medicine in its own right. We Indians used to breed only A2 cows or desi cows until the ‘white revolution’ created the half-breed cows whose milk is not fit for consumption.)
  • Cow dung cakes again only from the desi cow.
  • An Asan for you to sit on. The asan is all important, the foundation of all your spiritual activity. As you keep on using it again and again it also starts working like your energy battery. (post here)
  • A time table which shows you the exact time to the second of the sun-rise and sun-set at your location. This would be the time when the mid-point of the Sun’s disk is at the horizon.
  • An accurate watch with the seconds display to see the time for your location.

The Homa procedure

To begin with, clean yourself up, wash your hands/ feet/ face or have a bath if you have time. And dress in a loose fitting cotton dress.

Sit on your Asan, face east or north. Try to sit in Padmasan, Ardha-Padmasan or the Siddhasan yogic poses. If you cannot sit in these yogic poses, then sit cross legged. (If you cannot sit down, then sit in a chair but then arrange your Homa set-up on a table so that the fire is above your navel’s height.) Pray to your favourite deity or source of faith. If you have water from the Ganga, sprinkle it all around. If you have a conch, Shankh, blow on it thrice. Or try to visualise a cocoon of pure silvery-gold energy around you. Take a minute for all this so that you relax your mind.

Now to set up the Homa kund. Keep the pyramidal kund on a brick or a fire-proof tile else you might spoil the flooring.

Take 3 pieces of the cowdung cake and dip them in the ghee. Arrange these three pieces in the pyramidal kund in a sort of triangular arrangement with a small space between them. Take a smaller piece of cowdung cake, dip it in ghee and set it alight. Put this small burning piece in the small space you had left, so that the 3 main pieces also catch fire. If you can recite the Agni Gayatri, ‘Om saptajivhaya vidmahe, havvya-bhadraya dhimahi, tanno Agnih prachodayat Om’ while you light the fires it will help. Else at least recite ‘Om’. Agni is not just fire, it is the conscious intelligence of the fire. It is aware and has power. You are invoking it and requesting its help for performing the Homa.

Add some ghee on the burning cow-dung cakes using the spoon so that the fire starts blazing properly.

Do all this and get ready for the actual Homa at least 2-3 mins before the exact time of sunrise/ sunset.

Then while you are waiting for the exact time, you can recite the Gayatri mantra or any other Sanskrit mantra/ sukta/ shlok/ stotra as per your choice. Or recite Soham with your breath mentally, manasik jaap. Try to get your mind in a calm and peaceful state so that you can make the most of the Homa which you will be performing soon.

Then take about two pinches of the rice grains on your left palm.

Keep an eye on the exact time. At the exact time of the sunset/ sunrise you have to recite these following mantras and with each ‘Swaha’ drop one pinch of rice grains into the Homa Agni.

Use the ‘gras mudra’ for offering the pinch of rice to Agni.

gras mudra

Sunrise agnihotra mantra

  • Suryaya swaha, sooryaya idam na mama
    • (Offer one pinch of rice to the Agni with the word ‘swaha’)
  • Prajapataye swaha, prajapataye idam na mama
    • (Offer one pinch of rice to the Agni with the word ‘swaha’)

Sunset agnihotra mantra

  • Agnaye swaha, agnaye idam na mama
    • (Offer one pinch of rice to the Agni with the word ‘swaha’)
  • Prajapataye swaha, prajapataye idam na mama
    • (Offer one pinch of rice to the Agni with the word ‘swaha’)

That is it. These two mantras recited at sunrise/ sunset is the complete Agnihotra Homa.

Now sit in silence in front of the Agni till it extinguishes. You can do your Gayatri puja or your Dhyan (post here) during this period. Let the energy of the  Agnihotra Homa enter your body and mind. You can get up after the fire extinguishes.

Now the ash generated is not just ash, it is ‘vibhuti‘. The power of the mantra,  intention, time and energy generated by the Homa has entered the ash / Vibhuti. It is a ‘spiritual medicine’ now. Put some on your forehead, you can eat some of it. (My son eats it all as soon as it cools down. And if my mind was distracted during the Homa, he points it out as the taste of the Vibhuti changes, he says it becomes sour in taste.) You can store this vibhuti in a glass bowl for about 15days. Some uses for this vibhuti,

  • Put a pinch on the forehead as a tilak.
  • Use it to remove evil eye. Mix one pinch of this Vibhuti in a fistful of raw rice and use it to get rid of negative energy adhering to you (post here)
  • Eat it
  • Mix a pinch in the bath water.
  • Sprinkle it at the four corners of your house, it will act as a shield around the house.
  • Put a small pinch under the chair in your office
  • If you wish you can make an amulet using this
  • If you do not believe in its power, try this small experiment. Put this vibhuti in the potted plants you have in your house and see how they grow and also glow with energy. I give the extra vibhuti to the Tulsi plant (post here) in my house.

Agnihotra is the duty of every householder. The burst of energy at the exact instant of sunrise/sunset is channelised into you, your house and your surroundings through this Homa. If you have learnt to see auras or can see into the astral you will be able to see a literal explosion of energy bursting from the Agni as soon as the rice grains fall into it with the sound of the mantra. The energy of the smoke is also very high and wherever it goes, it will cleanse the atmosphere of all negative energy. If there are entities in your house or an evil eye on you or your family members then it will be blown away by the force of this energy explosion. Try it once and then evaluate the difference for yourself.

A personal experience. Some time ago, I was required by karma to travel astrally every single night for a few months. It was so tiring that I could not get up in the morning at sun-rise. It would take so long to reanimate the physical body and I was very drained. And there was additional work in office so I was missing the evening sun-set too. So for a few months there was no Agnihotra Homa performed in my house. (My son was small so could not do it alone. And my husband was even more busy than I was) The result was that the house was full of spirits and other trashy beings roaming around all the time. The house was in a bad shape. Only my pujs room was shiny and sparkling. Astral travel, though sounds romantic, is very bad for the physical body. It drains the pran-mai-kosh, and I was doing this every night. Also when you go to the other dimensions in your sooskhma sharir, you leave open ‘doors’ for the other beings to come in here. Even if you are careful to quickly shut the ‘doors’ these do get the opportunity to come to our world. And you are so focussed on the work that often you forget to shield the sookshma sharir and you get attacked a lot. A lot. The Agnihotra was not possible during these few months and I and my husband were both too tired to ‘clean up’, things went down-hill. When I restarted the Homa, things were driven out of my house on the first day itself. And with each succeeding day the shields re-formed got stronger and the house came back to its beautiful neat and clean, high-energy self.

So if you have the resources available do perform this simplest and easiest Agnihotra Homa. If you cannot do it at both sunrise and sunset do it at least once a day. It will bring a lot of positivity to you, your house and all the people living in your house.

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.

Exorcisms and releasing spirits

I got this question, someone was being asked to remove spirits trapped in a plot of land. And a spirit was asking this of him.

Land or homes can be affected by negative energy. It is quite common. This negative energy can be actual spirits, a shadow ‘chhaya’, or just generic ill-wishing. I have written about this in my posts on hauntings, how to remove the spirits etc. If you believe your personal house or land is haunted by negative spirits then you should get rid of them. You can do it yourself or get a professional to do it as per your wish. But if you are being asked by another spirit to go to a plot of land and clean it out of the negative bindings and to release the other trapped spirits there, you must think first on what you really want to do. Does your higher self agree with what this spirit is asking? If so, and you are confident about your capabilities then go ahead but with adequate precautions. If not then stay away.

This ‘cleaning up the land thingie’, has happened to me several times. The most recent was this, I was to go to Moscow and I was specifically told to carry a small bottle of Ganga-jal with me. Water from the river Ganga has the highest pran/ vital energy on this planet. Then I was told to sprinkle some of this water on one specific place there, this place was shown to me in a vision and also described in words. I was to put some of it into the Moskva river because apparently it meets the Volga river later. I did ask before doing all this, why? and why me?. The answer was that I would be completing a significant chunk of my own karmic work by doing so and some very specific reasons were also given. It was a very clear-cut direction. So I did all of this and it worked well, I saw the energy of the land and the waters changing before my eyes in a blast of explosive gold-silver glitter. I had several dreams about some people and past lives in ancient Russia. Overall a very satisfactory experience.

Then there was another episode, very long ago, when I set free a very large number of spirits trapped somewhere. (The how and the whys of this incident would be too much for this blog). The next day my brother called up, scolding me. All the spirits I had released, had latched on to me and were absorbing my energy, so many tiny hooks embedded in my aura. So if you intend to release spirits trapped somewhere, remember that they will be down on energy and after you release them they will want to possibly drink up some of your own clean, pure, positive energy. All spirits are not benign, some are actively bad and will take a chance for free energy and attack. So shield yourself carefully. Create multiple layers of energy around yourself and protect yourself from the psychic attacks which will come. After you finish your work, cleanse your own energy adequately. Boost your own energy. I have written posts on these topics too earlier, do re-read them before attempting this task.

Exorcisms and releasing spirits

And finally decide for yourself if these spirits really need to be released? And are you supposed to release them yourself? In that same Moscow tour, I saw some more spirits who wanted me to release their bindings, but their time was not done yet. They were souls of people who had committed grave crimes against their own people and were going through their due karmic rebalance in spirit form while tied in that place. It was their karma to continue for some more time like that and it was not my karma to free them. So I did not do anything despite having that small Ganga-jal bottle with me.

Cleaning a plot of land can be as simple as putting Ganga-jal on it or putting some curd/rice in it or lighting an incense stick or reciting a mantra on it. But do it only if you are really have to. If your conscience agrees that it is your karma.

And entities attach to us through the weak chinks in our aura. These cracks are most commonly seen around body parts linked to the ascendant sign, the moon sign and the sign occupied by Ketu in your birth chart. So when you seal your aura or make your shields pay more attention to your these areas. eg If Pisces Moon – around the feet. Or if Libra -Ketu then around the back the aura will be weak etc.

There are a few people who can see the astral and other realms more easily and this is because they have to work there. Or they face dangers from these places and their denizens. So this additional ability has been given to them. It is not wonderful or charismatic. It can be tiring at times and sometimes outrightly dangerous. So if you are required by karma to work in these other places, do your spiritual practices, increase your own energy and always shield, first protect yourself.

 

 

Analysing occult from the houses

This is continued from the previous post here. Now about the houses, see how they connect with the occult. As usual check out the birth chart for the manifested reality of the occult phenomena, the navamsha for the astral and subconscious potential for the occult and the birth moon chart on how all this ‘other-ness’ affects the emotions and mental stability. Each house contributes to the ‘occult’ personality, but the main house is the 8th house.

Occult and the 8th are interlinked. You will need to analyse everything about this house, the planets placed in it and it’s ruler’s placement. Just a few combinations to get you thinking.

  • Any planet connected to the 8th has the capacity to grant occult senses. Pay attention to the planets placed/aspecting the 8th, which houses they rule and their nature.
  • The planetary owner of the 8th house of your chart, Mars the natural owner of the 8th house of the zodiac and the sign Scorpio the 8th natural sign, wherever they may be placed in the chart are linked to the occult. So analyse these forces too.
  • I have noticed Aries ascendant and Libra ascendant persons are often connected to the ‘occult’ in some way. I think this is because the owner of the ascendant sign and the 8th house sign is the same planet. The personality tends to accept such energy transformations more easily.
  • If the rulers of 4th, 5th, 8th, and 9th are linked in some way, (conjoint/aspects) in any of these houses, you can expect a highly aware tantrik personality.
  • Mars if placed in the 8th house always indicates that high levels of astral forces are operating which will cause transformations through catastrophic changes. Similarly for Ketu in 8th house. If such persons refuse to take up their karmic burden in the right spirit, they will suffer accidents and other problems with the physical body. If they choose to serve out their karmic load, they will become exceptional tantrics, regularly working in the astral domain, changing internally
  • I have a client who as a child didn’t understand what he was seeing. It was scary so as a child he intended that he stop ‘seeing’, so he also started losing his normal vision also. A very high myopia and more eyesight problems as he grew older. Finally by the Devi’s blessings, he realised that he had karma which could not be avoided so started ‘seeing’ again, both his visions (normal and ‘other’) then stabilised with this acceptance.

Analysing occult from the houses

Now the three houses of the Dharma trikon, determine the foundations of your life, your personality/environment, your creativity/divine intelligence and your philosophies/teachers.

The first house, the Ascendant lord is how compatible your personality is with your environment. e.g. The ruler of the 1st house if with Ketu, will 100% give association with spirits. How this association turns out positive/negative depends on other placements. Ascendant sign is overall you and your environment. If you have Ketu in your 1st house, you will be also be more susceptible to the evil eye/’nazar’. Spirits can access your personality and environment very easily.

The 5th house is where you channelise divine intelligence and express it as your own personal creativity. e.g. If Ketu is linked to the 5th or owner of the 5th, you will receive information, communications and ‘intelligence’ from the disembodied ones, the ghosts and the spirits. Or the owner of the 8th house if placed in the 5th. Or if the ascendant and Ketu in the 5th.

The 9th house can grant a Teacher, a real Guru (tantric/spiritual/philosophical etc) who can guide responsibly. If this house is strong, you will learn whatever is being taught with a broad mind. You will be less likely to cheat yourself by misusing the knowledge you have been given. You will also be more likely to have students yourself so that you can pass on the wisdom thus completing your karmic cycle. Knowledge is always free, but it has to be given with a sense of love and responsibility and received with gratitude and respect. If not then this knowledge will be the cause of new karmic bindings. This house provides this foundation.

Occult abilities sometimes run in some families, Ketu in 2nd house, 4th house or even 9th house is a good indicator of such families.

Now if your profession is going to be linked to the occult, i.e if you are going to be a practicing tantrik, there will be a connect of the 2nd, 6th and 10th houses with the planets linked to the 8th house or Ketu. There will be links to the family background/2nd, or a need to serve/6th or social status/salary/profession/10th.

The Kama trikon is the 3rd/your boldness, 7th/bargaining capacity and 11th/ability to gain. These houses if strong enough will reduce the impacts of practicing the occult on yourself. I think it is rather obvious, if you are bold enough, you have the ‘working’ intelligence, you can negotiate equitable sharing/balance and gain from all this you are going to come out a winner.

The 11th house is rather important as is the house of your extended contacts, acquaintances, all sources of all types of gains, like-minded groups, very large groups etc. So if you are working with spirits, gaining from the occult etc this house will be important. Like I know a chart with Ketu in the 11th/Rahu in 5th, Moon, Mars, Sun superbly placed, this person has occult abilities beyond description, earns a lot and gives it all anonymously to charity, is never scared of anything that he sees. But then time and transits always take their toll so had to suffer very severely (illness for the physical body) for all this too.

And finally the Moksh trikon, how is this dabbling in the occult going to change you. Will you successfully resolve your karma and use these abilities as a springboard for self development? Or will you be lured by the sheer power that is accessible to you and get caught in the trap of ego? The activities of the 8th house are the main driving force. Occult is the 8th. These actions will be manifested in the 12th house in the astral and the sub-conscious dimensions and will serve as your foundation or binding, these final aspects are be analysed from the 4th house.

Analysing occult from the houses

For those who have an option of choosing between the ‘occult’ or ‘spiritual’ directions, it is advisable to choose the spiritual path. Working with your own energies is considered ‘spiritual’ and infinitely preferable compared to interacting with the energies of clients (being a tantrik). Most good Jyotishis also have a good understanding of the other energies. Interactions with the other dimensional beings is also quite risky (more tantric-ness). When you work with your self, you are sure, you can find your problems, you know the best solutions and you can resolve them completely. With clients and the others it can entangle.

When I was a child I could never understand all this, later as I grew up with my chart and planets maturing, I realised that there was no other option, I ‘saw’. Now I cannot ‘un-see’, all the places I go to, all the people I interact with, the food I eat, the sounds I hear, everything has more dimensions and thus affects me on the other dimensions too. I have to be alert, even when I sleep. The only source of energy is my spiritual practice, the Devi and her mantras. I love my Devi Kali. Whatever I do, I do it because of Her, or rather She does it through me. I leave everything in Her hands.

To navigate the Astral Worlds

I see so many people on Facebook and ‘spiritual’ websites claiming that they visit the astral realms or that they will teach you how to access the astral worlds. If they were genuinely visiting the astral and other dimensions they would never do this!

So what is the “astral” realm and why do we go there? Sleep/Nidra in Sanskrit, is a very complicated phenomenon. When you sleep quite a few things happen, for one the flow of pran/vital energy of the body changes its movement. When you are awake (Jagrit awastha) the pran energy is first brought at the ajnya chakra and distributed around the body, it is used by the organs of action and the organs of senses. But when you are asleep, this pran is consumed at the third eye chakra itself in a rather mysterious way, and used in repairing and rejuvenating the body.

One part of this pran, during sleep, is used to access the dream state (Swapna awastha). This dream state is where you partly access your own personal sub-conscious. You might get very vivid dreams, remember them, or you may not, but your Self stays within your energy bodies. You do not travel astrally or visit the other dimensions or access the collective-sub-conscious state. There is no need to do so as your own sub-conscious is competent enough to deal with matters related to your limited needs. Most of those who get excited about ‘astral travel’ are just experiencing vivid dreams and guidance from their own sub-conscious, a very normal and regular activity.

But then for some of you there is a need, a requirement to travel out of your energy bodies. Then you will be travelling in the ‘astral’ or the other dimensions. This is now quite serious. The 12thhouse is the most important for this analysis. You will see combinations like the following in the chart.

  1. Combination which grant the necessary dissociation of the bodies so that the astral body can separate from the physical. Eg ascendant sign /lord with Ketu.
  2. Combinations which allows a link to the astral planes, so that you will find the routes. Also the planes need to become stable enough for you to enter them. And the astral body also to have the necessary ‘fluidity’ to slip out of the other energy bodies. Eg Moon in the 8thor 12thhouses or in the Scorpio or Pisces signs.
  3. Combinations to ensure that you have the wisdom to travel the astral responsibly and remain safe there. E.g Jupiter and/or Venus, conjunct/aspecting the moon and/or the ascendant lord or the 12th.
  4. You do not enter the astral for entertainment, you travel there to work off your karmas and to serve. E.g. Saturn or the 6thhouse, connected to the Ascendant Lord/sign or the moon

Travelling to the astral is a burden. You sacrifice the rest and rejuvenation of your sleep state and go to work in the other dimensions. You do not sleep when your astral self is out. When your astral self separates from the rest of the body layers, the entire body gets disturbed. You wake up with a pressure band around your head and somehow the center of your head ‘pains’. This ‘headache’ can go on for days. It is not a migraine. Your astral had separated while you slept and in the morning when you wake up it had not integrated back properly. If this goes on for a prolonged period of time, this imbalance manifests as a disease which has no physical reason and no physical solution.

I had a client who was continuously travelling out of her body for years. Not sleeping for years too. It was her karma to go and work every night. Seeing her photos from before this astral stuff started happening and her present self was disturbing. It was like she had aged 15yrs in a span of 3-4 yrs. This client had developed spots and black patches in her vision, the doctors could not see anything wrong with her. ‘Seeing’ the energies of the astral was destroying her eyes in the physical world.

Now a few points for those who are required by Karma to travel astrally. The astral is generally not a friendly place so this is what you should be aware of.

  • The astral movements always destroy the physical body. You will wake up tired and drained, with a strange ‘headache’, nausea and dizziness to some extent. When you ‘see’ your energy bodies after you get back it will be like they are overlapping but not completely integrated. You should always consciously fix the bodies back into their places using the full form of the Gayatri mantra. I had written about it in this post here. Any damage to the astral body can take upto 6 months to manifest in your physical body. So better safe than sorry, use the Gayatri and fix them back intheir places immediately after every travel.
  • You will be working in the astral, so you will have your enemies there too. So now when you are unaware of the astral (when awake), you will be attacked. These entities are often called Vetal or Pishachya in Sanskrit. I had this experience once, a Vetal had from his own dimension inserted small ‘injections’ so cleverly into my aura that it took a couple of days of queasiness for my brother to figure out what was happening. So be alert, make your protection amulets, or clean yourself everyday with peacock feathers.
  • Any interaction with any entity/spirit in the astral leads to exchange of energy. A client was a tantrik in his several past lives. He had deep love for Shivshankar and thus in a life he changed and started his Self-discovery. His enemies still in that path of dark energies are now high level Pishachyas. They still visit him every night and challenge him to fight. He would fight them thus lose his energy to them. His aura was like cold ice. My aura touched his when we met and he instantly drained my energies, I got so dizzy and nauseated that had to drink a couple of lemon sodas (sea salt and lemon) to rebalance. So while moving in the other realms focus on what you have come for and shield yourself always. Do not interact needlessly with the denizens there.
  • Then your work in the astral will bring you in contact with entities you owe energy to. As long as they take what they are entitled to it is ok. But more often they will insert tiny ‘hooks’ into your aura and use you continuously like a energy battery. This will cause tiny chronic health problems for you. So again shield yourself always.
  • And then as you are now aware of these secret energies, you will become the ‘energy protector’ of your family. If anyone curses or ill-wishes any of your family members living in your house, that negative energy will attack you first. So be aware.

To navigate the Astral Worlds

Now with this note of caution, there are several good things also in the astral. But you will be called to get them only if it is your Karma. If you are to receive positive energy from the astral it will be given to you in a gentler way. E.g. one client often sees her ‘higher self’, ‘healing’ her current self when asleep. Your astral body looks exactly like you, height/weight everything. But your ‘higher self’ looks different, it may look like you, but more likely it will look like the person you were when you had reached your highest level of spiritual development. My client sees hers as an aged, thin but very brilliant old sanyasi man.

(There is someting called sleep paralysis which is misconstrued as astral travel. Have written about it in this post here. )

You are now a resident of the physical manifested world, not the astral. When your body dies you will return to the astral, not now. While residing in the physical body, if you work too long in the astral, your physical body will deteriorate and you will return to the astral earlier. You should have been in Nidra/sleeping, using your pran energy to rejuvenate your physical bodies, but you were using up the pran in travelling and working there. So you have to make extra efforts to restore your physical health and maintain your manifested form. There is no other way, you have to do Dhyan. You can do reiki healing and other ways of manipulating energies but the best and most deep way is Dhyan. Reiki etc is healing energy from the universe. Dhyan is you yourself actively working with your own pran. It is a difference like heaven and earth!

Always remember that the astral and other dimensions are just like foreign places. They are unknown and more likely dangerous. You do not travel even upto the grocer’s shop unless you have something to buy. So why would you be travelling into the other realms unless you have a clear and pressing reason? It takes significant energy! If you have work, go there and do it, but always take adequate precautions. And steer clear of the online sites where someone offers to teach you ‘astral projection’ in 300dollar online class. It is not a ‘projection’, your astral body, you yourself, leave and go elsewhere. ‘You’ come back before you wake up. This is a burden and is not for everyone.
