The recent eclipses have caused much of the hidden energy, both individually and collectively, to come to the surface. This may have been experienced as lethargy, lack of motivation, unhappiness, being unsatisfied with the status quo, and even deep anger and sadness. Eclipses are a very important Astrological event as they help to illuminate the shadow side within everything and everyone. This helps humanity to recognize and release all of the pockets of energy that have unknowingly been hiding. These pockets can contain things from childhood, or emotions and feelings from experiences elsewhere in your current lifetime or even from past lifetimes. If you were someone that experienced some emotions during the first part of this month, and yet you could never quite figure out where those emotions came from, this is because this energy is from your past life experiences. Past life energy is much more difficult to get to the source of because it doesn’t always make sense in the confines of your current lifetime. The energy of the eclipses are also helping to change things on a global scale. The unfortunate events of the Gulf Oil Spill and the Oil spill in China’s Yellow Sea are going
When you start to open the door to working with, and understanding, the world of spirit, sometimes it seems like there is so much information that you do not know where to begin. As you go along on this journey is it important to always use your own inner guidance system to determine whether something resonates within you or not. Just because someone professes that information comes from the world of spirit, this does not mean that you need to accept it without question. This blind acceptance comes from a conditioning having to do with many years of following what people in positions of “authority” tell others around them. There was often so much fear at going against these authority figures, that one would rather follow through with a direction or action that they do not believe in, than face what they knew to be the consequences of not obeying these orders. As a part of your journey to become your own Master, is becomes incredibly important to ensure that what you believe is your own truth and not just the duplicate of another’s beliefs. Why is that? Well when you are not thinking and feeling for yourself in this
The Ego is the most questioned and misunderstood part of the metaphysical journey. Defining what the Ego is can be far easier than conquering it. The Ego is your proverbial blessing and curse. It is your identity as an individual and must be developed in order to advance your consciousness. This identity is what separates you from the masses and allows you to stand unique. While the separation or uniqueness is ultimately an illusion, it is a necessary part of your development in order to recognize the internal spiritual being used to develop your higher consciousness. The ego is an insecure and unpredictable character with an insatiable appetite. Its primary motivation is self-importance. It is also the primary drain on your energy and the power you possess. The ego is imagination and memory rolled into one and is protected and driven by the self. This is not you, but an extension of the illusion of you. The ego hates change and unpredictability, wanting to be comfortable and follow a routine at all cost. That is how it maintains the illusion and control. While developing this uniqueness is a necessary part in the evolution of your consciousness, it must not be
Chakras are energy centres in the pranic body or the energy body. The human organism comprises not merely the gross physical body but several other sheaths like mind, karma, wisdom and bliss. These sheaths are what are referred to as koshas by the Indian seers. Among these sheaths is the sheath of prana or energy which comprises of the various chakras, nadis (energy channels). The latent spiritual energy known as Kundalini flows through these chakras and nadis, thereby making them vibrant. The flow of energy in this sheath affects all the other sheaths thereby resulting in a healthy body and mind, the result of which is bliss and peace. These chakras and nadis get defiled due to wrong lifestiles and eating habits and also due to the bnrdenof erroneous perceptions and negative karma. This disturbance affects an individual physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Negative thought patterns create negative situations in life. So,Chakra Dhyana is not merely a sadhana to activate the subtle dimension but it also assists in creating a healthier mind which is imperative for a happy and healthy life. Chakra Dhyana has three steps to it ie concentrating on the mystical diagrams of the chakras (Yantra), uttering of
Recently the word change has become a frequently used word in our vocabulary. Our financial institutions are promoting a change in the lending practices, our government is looking to change our economy, the younger generations are imploring a change in policy concerning our environment and the older adults want a change in the healthcare system. But what really does it mean to change? I looked up the word in the dictionary and found it to mean to substitute, alter or vary. Change implores doing something different than what you are presently doing. Why, then, must it be qualified as good or bad? Is change not just changing? Change itself is the act of doing, it is not the outcome. By doing you are neither good nor bad, you just are. Such fear has been associated with the word change. Our society developed a phobia against any kind of change. The outcome is too unpredictable to chance; we would rather do nothing at all and complain about it than to chance a change for the better. Has the ego and self become so powerful that we are no longer able to move forward in a progressive direction? Logic tells us that
