The energy of thought

If you have been reading my previous posts, I have always emphasised your Intention, your Will and your Thoughts. Whatever you keep thinking of you will become. Whatever you want to know about you will Experience. If you focus on a book you will learn it, if you concentrate on yourself, you will become Yourself. (But where is the real you!)think1There are several ancient and modern age Gurus, humans being publicised and pushed into the society. These marketeers (sorry, but no other way to describe them), aggressively require their disciples to keep photos/paintings of ‘Gurus’ (dead/alive) and pray to these photos. This is very damaging for real spiritual growth. If you have faith in some human Guru (I do!) keep his photograph as a reminder of his teachings and the philosophy you learnt from him. It is important to be grateful, gratitude is the one real feeling which starts you on your spiritual path. But your spiritual practice is your Dhyan. It is only when you concentrate at your third eye and breathe in a specific pattern with an associated mantra, will your mind and thoughts still. So that you can glimpse the Truth that you really are.

Thoughts have energy. And if you have learnt seeing auras and learnt to see sounds, now try seeing the energy of your thoughts. The object you think of has energy, Look and see if this energy is pleasing to you. If it is desirable continue thinking about it, if not then change your thoughts.

In every mantra/stotra in Sanskrit, the last line is something like this “—-. स्तोत्रं यः पठेच्छिवसंनिधौशिवलोकमवाप्नोति शिवेन सह मोदते” , ‘whoever reads this —- stotra with the intention of being with the Pure One, will ultimately reside in the Pure Truth and find Bliss in the Truth’. This is what is needed, you have to remind yourselves that every action you do, may this action lead you to the Ultimate experience of the Pure Truth Itself.

So what are you thinking of?

The seeds of karma are within your thoughts. Your thoughts mirror your sub-conscious expectations. And your expectations are the energies which require rebalancing. But while rebalancing energies, you often go through traumatic experiences. Would you rather avoid trauma or at least reduce its intensity? This is the basis of astrological remedies. You basically think yourself out of the trauma.

If you think deeply, You are the Ultimate compressed into this human body with karmic baggage in your hands. Experiencing the vast You and keeping aside this baggage would be a relief wouldn’t it?

What do you want to know about?

You cannot let your thoughts lead you. You have to consciously direct them. Wanting to learn more about essential spiritual practices, Dhyan, Kundalini, Devi, Parmeshwar is all an excellent indication that you want to know about Yourself. Want to know yourself! with all the intensity you can muster. Your thoughts invite energies. Control the energies that you are opening yourself to. Control your thoughts. There are several types of energies. Satvik energies pull you towards Your Light. Rajasic energies towards the objects of this manifested Universe. And tamasic energies are dull, out-of-sync, dangerous, odd and damage your energy vibrational states. Try to increase your Satvik energies.

think3.jpgSuch a long introduction, you might say! But I cannot stop stressing on the direction of thoughts. You manifest with your thoughts. Your thoughts are your power of creation, use them very carefully, these are double edged swords!

I have written about spirits in previous posts, Goetic spirits, and haunted houses. After I wrote about the haunted houses, a few negative beings decided to pay my house a visit. I must have felt it deeply just writing the post, so subconsciously opened my own house to them. However they were ‘house-guests’ for a very brief period as all it took was to impress on them very clearly that it was my house and they were not welcome! But till I could clear out the house all of us suffered for a couple of days. These were tamasic energies, dissonant.

I never advise communications with departed loved ones or any form of spirits. Never. For normal people it is not needed and often creates more problems than solutions. Thinking about them opens doorways, just recently my Dad was thinking of my Mom (he suddenly missed her!), and she was in the house. When one spirit enters, the door is left open for the others too. As she was not too interested in staying, she went as soon as Dad apologised to her for thinking about her. But then for the rest of the spirit-trash who had followed her, Dad had to throw them out himself, wasting his energy.

There are conscious energies everywhere. The beings from parallel dimensions are always around us. We call them Yaksha, Rakshasa, Vetal, Pishachya, Gandharva, Kinnar, Siddha, Dakini, Shakini, Naag etc. If you cannot see them or interact with them normally, there is a reason for it. Stay away from them.

Such malignant energies are most easily accessible in places where traumatic events have taken place in the past. I once visited Andamans when I was much younger and not very aware of things. I went to the ‘light and sound show’ which was played in the Central Jail there. If you are aware of Indian history, several of our freedom fighters were sentenced to jail here, tortured and killed by the Britishers. Now this place is of historical importance and open to tourists. And densely populated by negative energy and trapped spirits. I couldn’t sleep for the one week I stayed in Andamans. Dreams, visions, voices and seeing their astral selves was just too much. I feel sorry for them, their experiences have turned them mad. ‘Earthbound’ spirits of the departed are always around cemeteries where they bury bodies. These will be more than willing to interact and need very little encouragement to create problems in other’s lives. The only way out for them is if their descendants offer them tarpan at Brahmakapal in Badrinath, Uttarakhand.

There is a misconception that the spirits are benign, they are not. They are able to disguise themselves as per the target’s wishes. A child sees them as his favourite cartoon character. A man may see them as a young pretty woman. But they are not of this dimension, they are discordant energies, they look bad, they feel slimy, they are out of place in this world of ours. It is not that their vibrational states are ‘low or high’, it is just that they are dissonant. When they touch you or your aura you feel cold, shiver and your hair stand up. It puts your astral body in a state of shock. Some people often use them for manifesting small things, often to cause distress to other people. It is bad karma.

There is a class of beings like Gandharva, Kinnar, Nag, etc. They are not overtly malignant and depending on their mood can be of help. These are found in high places, clean mountains like Himalaya, near rivers of high energy like the Ganga. They ask for something in return, like sweets, milk, gold/silver etc, there is always a bargain and exchange of energy. If you know how to find them they are accessible. think2.jpgMy experience with these beings has been mostly clearing up after them or sending them off. Sometimes the less problematic beings have offered bargains. But I will not actively call them for working with me. I, and even you, can do more with personal energy than they can ever offer. Even thinking about them and wishing that they come and work for you consumes significant energy. Then their bargains are always not what they seem to be. A  better use of creative energy would be for personal spiritual progress.

Manifesting things is using your own powers of creation. You have unlimited power, you just need to think it into being.

 

This post was in response to this comment I received in the Contact form, “Lovely blog! I discovered via the astrology group. Can you write something about angels and other high/low vibrational entities and earthbound souls?” I hope this post has been of some help.

Talk to your stuff.

All the stuff that you see feel and touch is energy. The clothes, jewellery, books, even the umbrella that you use is energy. You wear your pretty pink bedroom slippers around the house and they also have their own energies to protect your feet. Strange as it may sound it would be nice to acknowledge these tiny energies you use around you once in a while.https://psychologicallyastrology.comYou live in your house, all you activities are centred around this focal point, you sleep here, you rest and rejuvenate. Your parents, husband/wife, children, your loved ones are linked to this place. It protects you all, gives you shelter. It may be a tent, an apartment, a bungalow or a shack, but it helps you and in its own way loves you too. So love it in return and acknowledge its contribution in your life. My Mom would do this on every full-moon day evening she would light a ghee lamp and apply kumkum, turmeric, incense sticks, flowers and unbroken rice/akshata to the main door of our house and express her gratitude. Every one likes being appreciated, even your house, so do something consciously at least once a month, it can be as simple as talking to your house! Stand in the centre of your apartment and tell it that you love it, it may sound silly, but the positive vibrations that you will generate with this simple expression will magnify and reflect back at you.

Your car is another big thing that helps you immensely. You drive around doing your errands, go to office, then pick up your child from school. It protects you while you are driving and helps you in so many ways. It would feel nice to acknowledge its contribution to your life. Most cars in India will have a small murti/photo of the deity Ganapati (this energy removes obstacles from your path) on the dashboard, and the person driving it will do a Namaskar and put a flower on this moorthi. This adds positive vibrations to the car as a whole. So as long as you are in your car, you get these positive vibes being reflected back at you. So do this once in a while, put your hands on the steering wheel and tell it that you appreciate its help. Tiny energies of gratitude multiply and eventually will come back to you in a big way!

Your workplace where you spend so much of your time, and you get so much out of it, money, a place in society, a joy of team-work and social interactions. Tell your desk that you love it. In India, we stick an image of our deity in front of us on the desk. Helps remind us of the divinity in our work! But tell your workplace and your desk how much you appreciate it, just once a week! It may be just words to begin with but as you say the words regularly, tiny things will change and turn bigger and nicer. Soon you will genuine love it and it will love you back too. You will see tiny but significant changes in your work environment, your behaviour and the behaviour of your office-mates too!

You may be rich or poor, you may not have much but ultimately you Are. And everything around you contributes to your existence. If you are aware you can make it better and more comfortable. Like you take care of your body, your water and food, things really important to you. But once in a while also acknowledge all the stuff that works in the background for you, the ‘props’ of your life.

We so often overlook the tiny things. But so many many tiny things get together to become a big thing. Do this too sometime when you are home alone, walk into every room of your house and check out all the things that make you happy and give you contentment. A silk scarf, a favourite book, your wife’s pretty dress, your husband’s happy photograph, your child’s exam-result, your new coffee-maker, your comfy arm-chair, the color of the carpet, the softness of the bed-sheets, the view from your window, your nice-smelling shower gel or even a cute hair-clip. Once in a while appreciate the texture of your clothes and run your fingers over the walls of your house. Express your gratitude to these seemingly inanimate objects, these are tiny packets of energy which help you in tiny but oh so very important ways.

These tiny expressions of your gratitude will also help you in your spiritual practice. As you recognise the energies of every tiny thing in your life you are training your mind. Moksh/Enlightenment is simply being aware of the energies of every tiny molecule to the largest of the stars. Sounds too fantastic right? But every huge thing starts with a very tiny little step.

Be happy and express the energy of your happiness and gratitude. As you send out so will you get back from the Universe. The butterfly effect!

Manifestation can be cute

Manifestation is such a catch word these days! Everyone wants to manifest true love, health, wealth, vacations, new dresses, anything  under the Sun. And it is all hyped up too. Apparently you need to be a lightworker, energy manipulator and what-not to be able to manifest your desires. And there are a load of classes and astrologers who will ‘help’ you manifest your desires after charging a hefty fee of course!lego-city-fond-d-ecranAm penning this fun post for you to try manifesting stuff at home yourself, and have some fun in the process, with Lego! Surprised? Don’t be, manifestation is your will and your intention channelized to get what you desire. You can power your intention using various ways, mantras, reiki, chi-balls, prayers, meditation or Faith.

So let’s start. On a day when you have some free time, get your favourite Lego set out. Get your most appealing glitter pen set and a paper. Face east or north. Keep all this in front of you, get comfortable. Think of your favourite deity/Reiki/Universe/the source of your Faith. If you feel like singing a hymn or a mantra or doing any ritual or not, it is all upto you. Then write out your desire in simple words on the paper and focus on it. Be happy, admire the ink and your handwriting. Be in an uplifted mood when you do this. Now open the box and touch the Lego pieces. Feel your intention enter the pieces. Feel the joy that you will feel as your desire manifests. Talk to the Lego pieces, soak them in your intention and your confidence to create. Then slowly with all focus set the lego pieces and get to creating, enjoy yourself. As you make your lego model, visualise your desires also manifesting in the physical world. After you finish keep this model somewhere where you can see it for a minimum 21 days. (You can then dismantle your set if you want to and reuse it to manifest a new desire.)

If you are into art and crafts, if you can create, i.e. paint, knit, crochet, carpentry, you can associate your intention and desires with any of the pieces you can easily create. If you cook, intend your desire while you are cooking and eat what you have made! Healthy soups were made on these same theory. Cooking soup for a loved one required a lot of stirring, and the woman cooking it would intend love and health all the while stirring it, energising it. You are the Creator, use any of the tools at your disposal. Act, your tiniest action powered with your entire Will, has Power!

You are in control of yourself, never forget that. You have immense powers to manifest your own desires. You are the Creator yourself.

Adapt and change

We get caught in so many situations in life. Every morning we wake to a challenge and every night we sleep with the satisfaction of having overcome it. Or perhaps not! There are some nights where we stay tossing in bed, faced with a situation that we do not know how to resolve. We get caught up in thinking about it, we feel about it but we cannot come to a conclusion about it. So what can we do? Change the circumstances ? Or change ourselves? Change is the only constant!pexels-photo-243206.jpegI get clients who want to kick-start their business, who want to get married, who want children, who want health and even more. But when I look at their charts I get a internal feeling of hopelessness. From their charts I can see the problem of mismatched energies, I know the solution, but I know that the client will not follow the solution and get himself out of the pain he is in. Human mind is quite lazy, doesn’t want to work or change itself. It will rather wallow in pain and terror rather than change. But change is a must, there can be no permanent solution until the mind and the thinking process changes.

Long ago, I used to make packets of healing energy, talisman/amulets for the clients, I really wanted to help people. And they always worked. But this made the client lazy and dependent, always asking me questions, finally getting uncertain about their decision making. But, now after so many charts and so many experiences, I have realised that I really help people only when I help them change themselves. Once you find the resources with yourself you are free!pexels-photo-1592384.jpegA practical example. So you are ill for quite some time and you are finally tired of being sick, you have ‘enjoyed’ being ill and now it is enough. So let us change. Teaching the mind to be healthy is what you have to do. But thinking about being sick all the time you have forgotten how it ‘feels’ to be healthy. So do this small experiment to remember ‘health’. However ill you may be, there must be one part of your body with is healthy and beautiful? Maybe your hair, or skin, eyes, nails, teeth? Anything? So now this is what you need to do.

  • Do a basic grounding and cleansing in a quick few minutes. Think of your source of faith/Universe/Reiki/Guru/favourite deity etc.
  • Sit comfortably and relax
  • Now visualise that healthy body part, e.g. your eyes. See their aura, golden and silver and feel the happiness that you have from having such beautiful healthy eyes. I mean really ‘feel’ the pleasure in your mind!
  • Appreciate your eyes and their health and beauty for a few minutes.
  • Now when your mind understands that you want it to love this healthy body part, expand it to cover your entire body. This feeling of health that you derived from your eyes, apply it to your entire body.
  • You can visualise this ‘health’ as a shower of golden/silver sparkles falling on you or you sitting in a pool of silver/gold water/energy.
  • If your mind tends to wander and immerse itself in morbid thoughts drag it back to your beautiful eyes.
  • You have to basically remind your mind to remember being healthy.
  • Then shield. Visualise a pearly silver gold cocoon of energy around you.
  • Do this mindful exercise everyday for 10 minutes? In fact as you wake up you can do this is your half-asleep state too.
  • There will be a change in your health and you will have brought it about with your own intention and energy.

Life is not a circle, we don’t come back to the point where we started from, we continue to evolve in spirals. It is new everytime!beach blue car combiThere are some individuals who never break, they just take the problems and situations in their stride and move on. They adapt and change their mind and their analytical processes to suit their new realities and always remain balanced internally. So how do they do that? The horoscope can be analysed to understand resilience and ability to bounce back, this is the domain of mainly Moon and Mercury.

The Moon is the Mind, deep fathomless. He is the experience of everything. The database of all your astral selves and past present parallel and future lives. He is every emotion you have experienced and every life you have lived. The position of the birth Moon, the sign and the house is very important. Also the planets he is conjunct with and aspected by. Basically a powerful moon placed well, will grant you emotional stability and comfort. You will always manage to find internal happiness and emotional security irrespective of the situations. Your mind will function without an emotional bias, you will be ready to be pleased, will not hold on to depressive emotions. Moon rules Cancer, so check out the location of Cancer in the birth horoscope. A well placed Cancer sign will subtly add to the power of the mind.

Position of the birth Mercury will determine the intellect and the analytical power. He runs the database. The ability to take a current event and match it through your experiences and learn from it. A well placed Mercury aspected by benefic planets will encourage a positive world-view. Mercury is the adolescent, sometimes immature even, thus is very responsive to other planetary influences. He is also highly adaptable and versatile, a multi-tasker. Also now check out the positions and placement of his signs, Gemini and Virgo in the horoscope. These also affect the intelligence in subtle ways. How you direct your mind is the domain of Mercury.

If you study the charts of such highly adaptable persons you will always find Gemini or Virgo as the ascendant sign or the birth moon sign in the birth chart or the navamsha chart. Mercury draws flack for his attention to detail and chatty behaviour. But these ‘Mercury’ behaviours if utilised properly have the ability to pull you out of strained circumstances. He is the Messenger, he can manage, manipulate, explain, describe, measure, communicate, interpret, think, analyse, instruct and engage with traders, merchants, middle-men, can see both sides of an argument, is duality himself. So if he is powered on, he will not let you get stuck in hopeless situations, he will look for solutions, pore over the data he has, and offer you options. (A weak Mercury will do the exact opposite and drag you into psychiatric and mental illnesses with his faulty thinking.)asphalt auto automobile automotiveSo think yourself out of the situations you are faced with. You have all the data you need, be imaginative and use it. Trust yourself always. You have so many more options to live your life beautifully. Use them and be happy!

 

Tiny magics, use with care

Everywhere in the world there is a variety of local magic which is channelised by shamans to help people in need. In North India these are called ‘totke’, tiny things that you can do with energy and intention to get results. As always, energy is by itself neutral, the use that you make of it makes it ‘black magic’ or ‘white magic’. Am writing a bit about these ‘totke’ in this post just so you are aware of what all can be done and in fact is being done using familiar daily objects. There are these targeted ads, ‘keep your husband in control’ which is strange and ‘keep your neighbour’s wife in control’ which is unbelievable! But there must be people interested in doing this negative things so let’s at least be aware of what all goes on in this energy world of ours.pin cushoinSpices – the energy of spices can be very easily harnessed in energy work. As it is, a tiny pinch of spice can change the flavour of food, they have medicinal properties, can affect our nerves and emotions on a very deep level.

  • I had written about a spice mix/mouth freshner in my earlier post here.
  • Another example, you can use spices to help you in your work. If you are going for an interview and you are worried. Take 3 cloves/laung in your right hand, sit on front of your puja ghar/altar and express your intention. Feel your intention enter the cloves. Then leave one clove in the puja ghar/altar, eat one clove when you enter the place where you are to give your interview and drop the 3rd clove at the seat where you will be sitting before giving the interview. Just remember that this is to boost you on emotional and psychological levels. If you have not studied, are not prepared, this will not work!
  • Never eat a spice, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon etc offered to you by another person or touched by anyone else.

Water – Water is a very innocent thing. We go to any place, we are first offered water to drink. But water can absorb energies, I had written about water in detail in this post here.

  • You can use water to enhance the positive energies around you by charging it with positive intentions. You can use Reiki, keep your glass of water in the puja-ghar/altar/sunlight, or dip a flower/fragrance/spice in it to change its energies. You can intend and just blow on it thrice and it will get charged. Or you can dip your fingers (generally only 4 fingers are used, not the pinkie) in it to charge it in a positive way. You can do anything with water, cure or curse!
  • A very quick way to cure normal sniffles, cough, cold and fever especially in babies and small children is to charge water in a copper pot/or glass with this mantra from ‘Devi Mahatmya’, “Om aing hreeng kling Chamundayye vicche, Rogan shesha napahansi tushta Rushta tu kaman sakalaanbhishtan Tvamashrita na vipannaranan Tvamashrita Hayashrayatan prayanti Om aing hreeng kling Chamundayye vicche, Om” In Sanskrit it is “ॐऐं ह्रीं क्लीं चामुण्डायै विच्चे, रोगान शेषानपहंसि तुष्टा, रुष्टा तु कामान् सकलानभीष्टान्, त्वामाश्रितानां न विपन्नराणां, त्वामाश्रिता ह्याश्रयतां प्रयान्ति, ॐ ऐं ह्रीं क्लीं चामुण्डायै विच्चे ॐ”.
  • But this ability of water to absorb energies can be used to harm too. (Channelling energies through the five fingers is very easy, as they resonate with the energies of planets/the 5 tattwas etc. The pinkie finger resonates with the energies of the Moon as well as Mercury). If you feel doubtful about someone, never drink water offered by him.

Food – All food that we prepare will contain salt. Salt especially sea salt is another very dangerous item, in the sense it absorbs energy and intention. This says it all. Do not eat food prepared by persons you do not trust.

But there are certain unavoidable circumstances where you cannot refuse the food/water offered to you. So now what? A easy solution, try to drop a bit of the food/water on the floor with the intention that its negativity gets ‘earthed’. The Great Mother Earth, somehow ‘cleans’ the food/drink in your plate/glass, so you can safely have it now.pexels-photo-1266139.jpegMetals – Metallic objects can be used in intentionally directing energy. I had written about charging your gold ornaments with positive energy here in this post. Here a couple of examples of ‘totke’ with metals.

  • You are the victim in a unfair legal case. Buy a lock and key, sit in front of your puja-ghar/altar and hold the lock-key in your hands. Make a chi-ball if you can. Put your intention in the metal, that the case is locked, status-quo is maintained. When you feel your palms buzzing with the energies you have created, simply lock it and never unlock it ever again. Keep the lock in your store and the key separately in another room.
  • You are the victim, and caught in a debt trap, the loan-shark will beat you up now. Take an iron nail, charge it with the intention of stopping his goons. Hammer it into the ground somewhere on the road leading to your house. They will be stopped.

Thread – Another ubiquitous object, but quite popular in local magic. You can ‘tie up’ things. If someone is out to harm you, you can simply think of the person out to hurt you and tie 3 knots on a black thread.

Dolls – And of course everyone knows about using dolls to harm. But I use dolls for distance healing in Reiki, it can be very effective if you cannot visualise the person. I stick the name of the person written on a paper on the doll and use it as a channel to send energy.

Tuesdays, Saturdays, Eclipses, Amavasyas, dusk, midnight are some of the times when the energies in the surroundings are more responsive to manipulation.

pexels-photo-461035-e1544688700511.jpegSo you see, if you have started working with energy, you can use almost any object to channelise it. Energy work is quite simple. But please be responsible with your energy talents. Here you can requesting energy from the Universe and directing it in the physical realm with your Will. You are the Creator, be very careful with your creations. If you do wrong or go against your conscience, it will be registered in your astral self and you may be required to spend your next life making up for it. So try to do good as much as possible.

Also be careful, our seers and sadhus have strict rules on what they eat, drink, wear, meet etc. It not their personal whims and fancies, its a bitter lesson that is learnt. Being free with your energy, being unaware of others, not taking basic precautions leads to more serious issues. So always shield yourself, do your cleansing and grounding and do some spiritual practice regularly to keep yourself charged with energy.

Manifest your desires using your green thumb

There is another hot word doing the rounds, ‘manifestation’. In every website on energy and consciousness there is a section on how to manifest your desires in 10-steps! Well, here is one really easy step for you. Plant a seed! Literally..

rucola-young-argula-sproutus.jpg

First think about what type of desire you want to manifest, logically human desires can be of the following categories, no more than these.

  1. Finances
  2. Health
  3. Profession
  4. Relationships
  5. Spirituality

Then choose your seed. Actually! Choose a robust plant, which you can plant from a seed, suited to the place and season you are in! You will now charge this seed with your intention and plant it in a pot. Water it and care for it. Add intention. As it grows so will your desires manifest. This is a secret of the Universe!

In India, women have been doing this seed/ plant/ manifestation thingie for ages and ages. Women are traditionally home-makers, it is the most difficult thing to do, ‘make a home’. They are in-charge of maintaining the house, ensuring a balanced diet, balancing the household-accounts, maintaining relationships within the social hierarchy, raising children as responsible citizens, and then finding a daughter/son-in-law, and even more, that is a lot of work. So the Indian woman uses the energies of the Universe channelized through a Tulasi plant. She plants a Tulasi in her house. Tulsi is botanically Ocimum tenuiflorum and an indispensable plant in Indian spiritual traditions. The plant is charged with her energies and her request for help. She prays to the Tulasi, considers it as an aspect of Devi Laxmi, the Goddess of Prosperity, everyday. She intends prosperity, health and happiness and gets it too, for every member of her home. This is the magic of nature channelized through intention!

tulasi.jpg

So now let’s do it. If you have chosen the desire and the seed whose growing energies will fuel your desires, this is how you go about it..

  1. Plan to plant your seed on the day which resonates with your desire.
    • Sunday – children, intelligence, creativity, higher education, gambling
    • Monday – mind, emotions, home, comforts, land, vehicles, property
    • Tuesday – physical body, health, vitality, competitions
    • Wednesday – communications, early education, money from trade
    • Thursday – expansion of all positive traits you desire
    • Friday – partnerships, business, relationships, love
    • Saturday – work and energy to perform sustained work, money from work
  2. Choose something that you like, tulasi, geranium, fuschia, oh, whatever feels good to you! You can also choose a fragrant plant resonating with that planet’s energy, refer this post. Get a plant which is easy to grow in your house. Get its one seed. Keep it on a green colored cloth on your altar/puja ghar, for some time.
  3. While it is on the altar, surround it with all the objects of power that you have. Maybe a rune? Or a mantra written on a paper? Or reiki? Or call on your favourite deity or the energies of the Universe.
  4. Cup your palms around the seed and tell it your desire. Feel it listening and absorbing your emotions. Feel it growing into a healthy plant bearing flowers/fruits. You are powering it with your intention so be true.
  5. When you feel satisfied, take this seed and plant it in a pot in your house. Intend it to grow and for your desires to manifest with its growth.
  6. Water it, tend to it regularly with the same intention in mind. Reinforce it.
  7. If the plant grows properly, your desire too will manifest.
  8. If it dies or fails to germinate, then re-think on what you were trying to materialise. Maybe it was not appropriate for you or hurtful for someone else.
  9. After it has grown and your desires also manifested, it will, as per its natural life cycle, flower, fruit and eventually die naturally. This is ok as your desires will have already been satisfied by this time.
  10. If you have planted a kitchen herb or fragrant plant, you have another advantage of being able to use it also as such.

This seeding-desire thingie may sound a bit funny, but it works. It has always worked for ages. The Tulasi is proof of the power of Intention coupled with Nature. The energy of a seed is limitless, it can power its own growth and also your intention. Trust and be patient. Nature will manifest your desires!

How to ground yourself..

We all carry lots of tiny bits of negativity with us. It happens, just see what happens to us on our normal day, we brush against so many people on the street, in the train etc.  We pick up stuff touched by others, our auras interact with so many many objects and impressions that are being held on those objects. We are electromagnetic and not biochemical. Our bodies are actually energy and our energies are always being influenced by others energies too. This is why dedicated seekers of the self, Sanyasis, live a life away from the society to avoid their auras and thus their selves being affected by others. But we cannot do this, we cannot stay away from others, so we need to get into the habit of cleansing and grounding ourselves at least once a week. Grounding helps remove this debris in aura which we have unintentionally picked up from others. It is like earthing electricity!

I have written about cleansing in my earlier posts, using lemons, sea-salt, peacock feathers etc. Cleansing by itself is a good start but for a complete package, grounding is a must. This is how you should go about it. It works for everyone.

pexels-photo-209234.jpeg

So do ground yourself preferably on a Tuesday or a Saturday, or if not possible whenever you are feeling relaxed and have 15 minutes to yourself.

  1. Prepare your room, it should be clean and pleasing, put on some light fragrance, sandalwood, lavender or whatever you like. Dim the lights. Switch off your phone.
  2. Wear loose comfortable clothing, loose your hair if you have tied them, remove your shoes and socks and sit on a straight backed chair. Lightly massage your soles and feet for a minute or so, get the circulation working, you are going to connect to the earth via your sole chakras so get them active.
  3. Sit with your back and neck straight. Rest your palms on your knees and keep both your feet flat on the floor slightly separate from each other. Close your eyes.
  4. Breathe deeply for a bit and relax. When you breathe your abdomen should move in and out, not your chest.
  5. Now focus in between your eyebrows, at the third eye/ajnya chakra. Visualize your body filled with gold-silver light from the Universe.
  6. Visualize roots coming out from the soles of your feet, piercing the floor, the crust of the earth and going down, down till they reach the diamond at the centre of the earth. This massive, huge diamond with gold-silver energy, gleaming and shining, very beautiful, very strong, the soul of the Earth.
  7. Your roots have now touched this diamond and linked you with the soul of the Earth. She is your mother and loves you very deeply.
  8. Now request her to help you, feel your request. Feel all the negative stuff, brown/black/dark red muck going out from you, from your roots and to the massive diamond. Feel all her energies of love, strength and beauty coming up from the diamond to you. Feel your aura expand and become even more brilliant. Feel gratitude and love in your heart for your Earth Mother and her love for you.
  9. Now your roots start coming back, through the crust of the earth, through the floor they go back into your feet. You have disconnected from the Earth.
  10. Now visualise your aura as a pearl, gold-silver and you at the center of this pearl. Hold on to this image for a few minutes and enjoy this moment with yourself.
  11. Then come back to the mundane world, open your eyes.

Ideally grounding should be done when you are standing barefoot on the ground, slightly moist ground, or grass law, or the wet sea beach sand. But in our daily lives we are always wearing shoes or so busy that we cannot go to a park or the sea beach, or the open spaces available to us may not be clean enough that we dare remove our shoes. So do it at home as above and it will be equally effective. You can even do a quick grounding in your office also if you are feeling stressed out, like during your lunch break. And always remember Intention is everything. If you intend for it strongly enough, it will happen.

So do your energy work and help yourself first. Ideally do both cleansing and grounding together, first cleansing then grounding, will take you around 30mins. I think 30 mins per week is something that you can definitely give for your own self. Invest time and energy in your own self because if you do not do it, no one else will!
