How to heal yourself with intention and visualisation

There was a question on “energy healing” and how it works.

The basic concept is this, you are pure energy, the Advaita, the Eternal Non-dual. You take on this 5-layered body to enjoy this game of creation, Lila. This body is also pure energy. Depending on the level of your perception you can observe your body layers.  If you use your physical sense organs, you can see the physical body/ Sthool sharir. If you have trained yourself to sense auras you are seeing some parts of your Sookshma sharir. If you are an advanced spiritual aspirant you will see your causal body/karan sharir. And finally when you attain Realisation/Moksh you will observe the Soul, your real Self too.

Now back to the body. The various prarabdha karma which you have chosen to enjoy/endure in this life put their imprints on this body. (These karma do not affect the Soul. Nothing can touch your Soul.) When these ‘imprints’ get stuck on your body, (this happens at the moment of your birth), you suffer through various ailments, troubles etc or enjoy the various joys etc. These imprints are triggered at various time/space as per the script of your birth horoscope and transit/Dasha.

Both pain and pleasure are karmic imprints on the body, they are not a part of your body and neither are they a part of your Soul. Some karma adhere strongly and some weakly, that’s about it. Always remember that these karma are adhering to your bodies, they are not a part of ‘you’.

  • Your body has 5-layers and these layer are arranged into the 3 bodies. If you have trained your sub-conscious or are doing your spiritual practice, you can perceive these karmic imprints on your sookshma-sharir in color as red, grey, black stains. Or as burn marks, cuts, welts, injuries etc. Or as hooks, ropes, weird tattoos, cords bound around your subtle body etc. or bas broken limbs and torn body parts. Or as twists in the nadis or irregular pran flow, pran moving in a jerky manner and if the pran flow has stopped the nadi will seem gray/black etc.  There will be something on this body which will stand out. This imprint will feel distasteful, painful, burning, slimy, irritating, uncomfortable etc.

Another typical thing, as you get more used to seeing your astral self, or do more Dhyan you will see into more layers of yourself. The outermost physical body is solid, everyone can see it. Some of you might have trained yourself to see your aura which is a reflection of your sookshma-sharir/subtle body, this will have some color depending on your emotional, physical and mental state at that moment. As you go deeper you will also sense your causal body/karan sharir. Whenever I see my this inner most body it is always a pure white layer. So if you see such layers of colors, do not get confused, you are just seeing yourself more deeply.

Sounds heard during mediation

Now to healing your bodies.

Most of you will be modifying the energies of your subtle body, sookshma sharir when you do ‘healing’ on yourself. (Rarely will someone need to go deep into the causal body to heal at such inner depths.) There are basically two ways in which you can “heal” these karmic imprints using your intention.

The first one is to literally remove the hooks etc. If you can ‘see’ them, you can just grab and pluck them out. These are extra things inserted into your body which are damaging to you, so just pull them out. eg if you see cords into tied on your body just remove them, pluck them out. This visualisation may seem a bit difficult if you are not used to working in the psychic realms but is quite easy. Simply pull out the foreign looking object which is on your subtle body and it will come off.

The second way is to just ‘peel off’ the unnatural energies adhering to your subtle body, just as you would peel off a sticker from a sticker book. These hooks, wounds, burns, cords etc are not a part of you, so you can easily ‘peel’ them off. Use either of these two visualisations as you feel comfortable with.

Now if the ‘injury’ is very deep or the imprint is stuck on very intensely then it will appear again in your astral body. Some karmic impressions are carried on for several lives so are stuck on rather firmly. So you may have to repeat this exercise several times to finally get rid of them. Best would be to give yourself a healing session every day. It takes only 5 mins of your time if you do it regularly. Once your mind gets used to this process, and can hold on the visualisations etc (say after about 21days or so) you can do the healing part anywhere and at any time of the day.

If you have Ketu in a prominent position in your birth chart then you must take care of your astral body. If he is with your ascendant lord or the birth Moon or influencing several planets then your sookshma-sharir is more your ‘real body’ than your physical body. The physical ailments and discomforts which you will undergo will have their real roots in the astral body. So healing the inner bodies should be an essential part of your daily routine.

How to heal yourself with intention and visualisation

Energy work is all about intention and visualisation. For this you need to have your mind under control and able to strongly visualise. This is how you would go step-wise about the process.

First prepare your room. You can cleanse it using by waving your favourite incense or peacock feathers or by spraying water of the Ganga or do a thorough cleansing using sea salt packets or lemons if you so wish. (Do refer to these earlier posts, use the index page to locate them). Keep the lights dim. Sit on your asan or in any pose where you feel comfortable. Take a few breaths, close your eyes, relax. This helps train your mind. (You are teaching your mind that now you are going to do healing on yourself. So a few sessions later your mind will start getting into the healing mode itself as soon as you do this preliminary clean-up and all.)

Then prepare yourself. You can think of your favourite deity or source of faith or the Universal source of energy. Intend that you are going to heal yourself, request blessings and power from these higher self. If you know Reiki you can ‘draw’ the Reiki symbols and make a cocoon around yourself. If you do not know Reiki then you can make a chi-ball to create an energy cocoon around yourself. (You are fortifying yourself with extra energy consciously.) 

And heal yourself.

  • With your eyes closed, try to ‘see’ yourself. All your body parts, do you ‘feel’ anything odd about any of them? Are they all feeling bright and active? Observe critically.
  • If you know your horoscope, (Vedic astrology), ‘look’ carefully at the body parts linked to the ascendant sign, the birth moon sign and the sign occupied by Ketu in the chart, there is a greater possibility that something is going wrong here.
  • If you see anything, hooks, burns, cords etc, you have to now ‘remove’ them. You can either ‘peel’ them off or ‘pull’ them out as you feel convenient.
  • Visualise the removed hooks, stickers etc burning in a very deep bright fire and floating away from you.
  • Then visualise a ‘bandage’ of energy, a soothing pearly shimmery layer of energy setting over the affected parts of the astral body. Hold this visualisation for a minute or so.
  • Then finally visualise a soothing healing shimmery pearly cocoon around you. Visualise that your source of faith is energising this cocoon.
  • Take a few deep breaths and then it is done.

So this is how you do a simple healing on yourself. (I have written several posts on healing and energy. Do use the Index page or the search bar to locate them if you wish to read.)

 

How to heal yourself with intention and visualisation

Moon in Scorpio into the subconscious

Signs of the zodiac are classified into fiery, watery and airy. Or as moveable, stable and dual-natured. They also have an associated Gun, satvik, rajasik or tamasik. These words do not literally mean water, fire etc but indicate qualities.

Scorpio is a watery sign, ruled by Mars and is a stable/fixed sign. It is Rajasic in nature. It might seem that these words are contradictory but they describe different aspects of the sign. Rashi is the apt Sanskrit word for sign, which means a ‘collection’, the sign is a collection of qualities. If your birth Moon is placed in Scorpio you are a very different personality. You are aware and in control of the powers of your astral self, specifically the pran-mai-kosh.

Moon in Scorpio into the subconscious

Raja-gun means that the you feel emotionally satisfied only when you are in motion. This motion is generally internal, invisible in Scorpio. You are constantly thinking/ feeling new strategies within. You have the entire summary of your past/ present/ future/ parallel lives to explore and use within yourself. You drill down into your own subconscious mind ever in search of resources. You can also penetrate into the minds of their family/ friends/ enemies too with this same intensity and focus. You observe and intuit highly personal information about others. This makes you dangerous and people tend to be rather uncomfortable around you.

Mars rules this sign. He demonstrates his challenging, explosive, penetrating, forceful, etc characteristics here too. Here he will use emotions, the aura, astral self, movement of pran, power of intention etc as his weapons to attack your own subconscious and also other’s. These attacks are usually invisible to the eye. He will control the ‘musculature’ and strength, not of the physical body but of the astral body. He will decide and also manipulate the structure of the naadi/energy channels and the vitality/pran flowing through. He gives you power to consciously control pran!

Now the Moon in the horoscope represents the physical mother, maternal figures, initial schooling, childhood home, nurturing and nutrition. All these aspects of life will reflect these similar Scorpio traits of change.

The natural eighth of the zodiac. So expect a lot of emotional turmoil for yourself and also in your surroundings triggered by your mere presence. You are emotionally ready for any shocking catastrophic change. You thrive on them!

Scorpio is a stable/ fixed sign. This means you have tremendous will power, you can focus on the essential. Mars uses the unfathomable resources of the entire sookshma-sharir, ie the subtle body, with single-minded focus. He is a hunter, a predator of the astral world. If anyone crosses you, you target the emotions. Thus your language is generally incisive, critical, harsh, vindictive, blaming and revengeful. You will try to subconsciously dominate always. Moon in Scorpio creates moodiness and discontent. He responds to threats, real or imagined, with an attack on the astral/ emotional self.

Water is fluid, it can take on different shapes depending on the vessel. As a Scorpio-birth Moon, you are determined in your ideas of dominating others, you command. And your will to implement these ideas is also constant (fixed sign). However you will use different strategies as you are also fluid. You will adopt all psychological, mental, emotional, astral tools at your disposal, highly imaginative. You can in turn become a fluid water, turn into solid ice or scalding steam. The focus and the ability to use, to crush, to command if necessary. And extremely skilled. You does not trust anyone deeply. Mars is made for domination. So you feel satisfaction only when you can dominate everyone around you emotionally. Scorpios have an emotional need to be in control.

Or imagine water flowing in a network of pipes. It can be shut down in some and forced into other pipes. Now Mars with focussed will has the skill to consciously regulate the movement of pran/vital energy on which the body/mind works. This ability is important for spiritual progress. He will be ultimately shutting down the body’s other naadis and sending all the pran you take in only into the Sushumna. Evolved Scorpios engaged in regular spiritual practice can do this more easily. They can manipulate pran in the bodies of other people also. They can heal as well as hurt with this ability they possess. So becoming energy-healers, shamans, tantrik etc is natural to them.

Mars creates the body which experiences and also the environment which is experienced. As the natural ruler of the 1st Aries, he creates the physical body/world around you. And as the natural ruler of the 8th Scorpio, he creates the astral body/world surrounding you. He is birth, death and rebirth. Death is as vital a process as birth. Death does not mean and end, it simply means a fresh start, a transformation.

Scorpio controls reproductive and regenerative ability of the body. You are experimental and exploratory by nature. Affairs before marriage and during marriage are possible. In marriage there exists some dissatisfaction because the two have different ideas related to sensual pleasures. The partner prefers outgoing boisterous energy, eg family group type activities. Scorpio-Moon prefers secret domination and a bit of tension in marriage. Also will not express his real emotions ever. Scorpio also rules over the reproductive organs and the act of childbirth. Can be a good doctor/ surgeon.

Reconstructive and destructive events often occur in the life of Scorpio-Moon placements. You accept change in your own personality and surroundings in both the physical and emotional contexts. You have a very high level of confidence in traumatic and emotional situations. Scorpio is aware. It has an internal maturity of both maternal/ paternal emotions. It also has the necessary emotional readiness to interact with public, society and foreign elements. So it is are quite capable of facing any situation in life with perfect composure.

A watery sign has considerable intuition, it uses the resources of its astral self naturally, spontaneously and more often. The sign has access to astral selves of other people too. Their interaction is more on the astral levels than the physical levels. If you meet someone who has significant number of planets in the watery signs, Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces you ‘feel’ the interaction more. The auras interact with more intensity. If you are a watery Moon and your best friend too, you might notice being together without talking for long periods but then feeling like you have had entire conversations in silence. The aura exchanges information more easily in watery signs.

Watery signs are about ‘rhythm’, there is a distinct ebb and rise in your every action. Water also has depth, things move unseen, gather force till they explode like underwater volcanoes. Just like hydraulics which uses the power of fluids, Scorpio uses the targeted power of the fluid astral self in a very targeted and dangerous manner. Watery depths conceal secrets. Secrets about oneself and of other people are known to the Scorpios. And they will use them in unexpected force to dominate.

Now some astrologers completely forget to study about the Nakshatra, lunar mansions. If you want to perfect your readings, you have to learn the Nakshtra in detail. It will make your understanding of the D-9 Navamsha divisional charts also easier. Scorpio consists of 3 lunar mansions.

Vishakha – influenced by Jupiter. It uses concealed sources of wisdom to create changes to itself and its surroundings. There are rhythmic large surges in growth. Something like cell division? To grow there is first the pain of division. Desires to learn and then teach too. Is capable of healing type of pranic manipulation and the occasional kindness. A healer doctor.

Anuradha – influenced by Saturn. This lunar mansion uses secrets to resist dangers. It transforms itself by disciplined response to emotional challenges. Here the role of karmic influences in higher and the explosions of Mars’s energy are regulated. You cannot rest, there are so many duties lined up. You need to work. A doctor who works in the trauma emergency ward?

Jeyshtha – influenced by Mercury. Highly intelligent, inventive and skilful of the three. This naksahtra born are intelligent, analytical, calculative and communicative. However they will communicate nil iIf they wish to hurt someone, they know the exact precise amount of cutting words to use. Can directly confront with single minded force, refutes other’s ideas. Can be a good investigative or detective agent. Understands the criminal mind very well. Birth Moon in the very last degrees of Jeyshtha means it is a Gandant birth with its own set of issues.

Moon in debilitation. The energy of the Scorpio environment is completely unmatched to the Moon’s nature. For a Scorpio Moon to be successful the ascendant sign/lord should be well placed. The Mars should be capable of giving benefic effect. And such a Moon should be influenced by benefic and auspicious planets. Scorpio is a highly esoteric rashi. If you are a Scorpio-birth Moon, choose to explore your inner spirituality. You will be great here.

Here you are aware of the biggest fragility of of the human being. The sookshma-sharir, the subtle body. You are aware of deepest emotional astral needs, which everyone keeps secret. Acknowledge to yourself your own frailty. What you do with this knowledge, decide for yourself. This is the challenge.

If you learn to trust your own entire self, trust the conscious and the sub-conscious both. The sub-conscious mind is not a challenge that you annihilate with brute force! Yes, ultimately you will annihilate your self so that you can create yourself anew but if you try to understand the process and the reasons it will be more fulfilling. The natural Moksh trikon is created using the energies of Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. These three signs are the most mysterious of the twelve. In Scorpio, secrets and hidden forces are used to liberate the soul from the illusion of the manifested Universe.
