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.

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 on the internet, ‘keep your husband in control’ which is strange and ‘keep your neighbour’s wife in control’ which is unbelievable! But there are people interested in doing these negative things so at least be aware of what all is possible 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 a transparent or colored glass) 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 (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. Put that thread in running water or under some lonely tree.

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, dark half of the month 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 some spiritual practice regularly to keep yourself charged with energy.

Forgive yourself to Heal yourself.

We all chose our fate for this one life at the moment of our birth, this is seen as the horoscope chart which we read. Now there are always some ups and downs. It is so strange that we never question the ‘ups’ but rue the ‘downs’ of life. We blame the Universe our mom/dad, the husband/wife, our teachers and even our children for our problems. But it is time we realise that, the problems and their solutions are both within our own self.

Forgiveness is such a hot item in the market, that I felt like writing my very practical take on it. I think a bit differently, as always. So here it is.

The feeling of forgiveness is an energy. Energy can never be destroyed, but can be transmuted or transferred. Forgiveness arises only after experiencing intense emotional pain. The pain is so intense that you have no other ‘real’ way of resolving it, so you forgive. Forgiveness is about you and never about the other person. When you forgive, you return energy to the one who gave you that pain. This ensures your freedom. This really happens very rarely in a life-time because you cling on to negative energies and never think of freeing yourself through forgiveness.

Most of us turn forgiveness into a show of magnanimity, displaying the largeness of our hearts, turn it into a public spectacle, try to impress others with our nobility of spirit. When you ‘turn the other cheek’, follow a society rule-book, or try to gain socially by ‘forgiving’, you basically feed your ego and get attached to being on the high moral ground. ‘I am better than you because I forgive your heinous behaviour!’, simply does not work.

If you really want to forgive, the motive should be, to do the right thing by your own Conscience/Antar-atma. Forgiveness is no strings attached, you give it away. You cannot consciously plan self-gain when forgiving. True forgiveness happens only as a last resort. This is when you have tried all ways of resolving, re-balancing, healing and everything has failed. When the ego fails, you forgive. This happens only when you go through deep emotional pain. Such pain cannot be resolved by holding on to it. It has to be released and it will leave you only when you forgive yourself for choosing it in the first place. Forgiveness is always an intensely private affair, between you and yourself.

pexels-photo-264787.jpeg

Choices! You chose your emotional problem. Now you will choose the solution. Whatever you choose, the first step out is to forgive yourself for choosing the pain in the first place.

Example. Your wife died tragically young, leaving you with a baby to raise. You feel hurt, lost, resentful and in emotional pain. This is an injustice, you shout out at your Gods, at the Universe! Can the legal system help redress? Can any one else even do anything? No! You have to do this for yourself. You have to let go of this pain by forgiving yourself for choosing this experience. Release that painful energy to the Universe in this case. This is a bitter karmic lesson, learn it now in this life, forgive yourself, so that you don’t face the same situation in your next life.

Example. You buy a extra flat for investment and your brother asks to stay there. You agree but then he never vacates and you have lost possession of the flat. You try talking to him. Your parents also take his side. You can of course go to the courts to get him evicted but it is not worth the trouble. You have enough income and the flat was extra. Your brother’s behaviour has hurt your trust. You are reconciled to the loss of the flat, but you are hurt, deeply resentful and in emotional pain. How do you recover? There are no social or legal ways now. So, Forgive? The last resort. It is like an emotional surgery. A sample how-to-do.

  1. First think about what was the problem really?
    • Your trusting him? Or his betraying you?
    • Generally all normal persons trust their family members. So you definitely were not the problem. Betraying a family member’s trust was the problem. The problem was created by him.
  2. Identify the source of the toxic energy which is creating negative energy in you.
    • In our example this is not you. It has come from your brother.
  3. Acknowledge that Events occur as scripted in the horoscope. This was your choice at birth. So acknowledge that this event was to happen at this point of time.
    • You were to attract these energies of betrayal from your brother. The timing and the conditions were such that this foreign energy came in to you and got stuck on you. Temporarily, you attracted it from your brother!
  4. Now to remove this toxic energy. Emotional pain always burrows deep into the sub-conscious and astral bodies. It needs to be removed by its roots, else it can continue on to the future lives too. (Doing guided meditation also helps.)
    • This will take a bit of intention and conscious will.
    • Do a bit of grounding and cleansing with sea-salt water before and after this conscious act of ‘forgiveness’.
    • Relax and try to settle your mind. Think of your source of faith /universe /reiki /favourite deity etc.
    • Speak the sentences out loud. It should be from your heart in the language you are comfortable in. Something like this. ‘This energy of betrayal which had come to me from my brother, it does not belong to me, I have no use for it, I return it to its source where it properly belongs.’ and visualise it leaving you.
  5. After this removal (forgiveness), feel your light filled self. Visualise yourself covered by pearly silver-gold energy. Visualise the Universal source of light and love. Connect your pearly shield with this Source. Feel yourself enveloped by its comforting love. Relax.
  6. If the emotional context was too severe you may need to repeat this process a few times. This will ensure freedom from the toxicity and you will be secure in your own clear emotions.

Forgiveness ends the emotional hurt for the one who forgives.

For the one being forgiven, this does not mean that he is released from the burden of pain he gave. Far from it. One who consciously decides to emotionally or physically harm others, creates quite a bit of great deal of karmic pain for himself in some future life. The internal conscience is always judging, always! Your brother will face the consequences of his actions without a doubt. Karma cannot be escaped. It will ensure balance.

Forgiveness is not cowardice. And it is neither denial or suppression of emotions. It is neither reconciling to the pain. It is trusting the higher forces of Karma and putting yourself out of the picture.

Forgiveness releases you from the burden of this thought, “I have to ensure that this person who has hurt me gets punished. This is my responsibility”. In the personal context, there are several hurts which always remain deeply private. Social or legal justice has its limits. If you tie the one who hurt you to yourself like this, you will need to power this thought. This drains energy which could have been put to better use. You use precious soul-energy to hold on to resentment, pain, loss, torment, defeat, negativity, why? Let it go away from you. Know that karma exists and trust it to do its job. By forgiving yourself, you get free from the burden of grief. Concentrate on your well-being.

When someone hurts you on the emotional level, this should be your response, “You hurt me, I did nothing to deserve it. I will not keep this act within me. I am returning this energy back to you. I will not keep this energy and neither this emotional hurt within me.” Intend this consciously, forgive and be free.

Never cling to memories of injustice, it is exhausting, it drains you of your potential to be happy. And tell yourself, “my Self, my Lovely Self, always be Happy, it is your Real Nature!”.
