Facilitate Spirit-CONNECTION! Mars sextiles Neptune!

I see the world being slowly transformed into a wilderness; I hear the approaching thunder that, one day, will destroy us too. I feel the suffering of millions. And yet, when I look up at the sky, I somehow feel that everything will change for the better, that this cruelty too shall end, that peace and tranquillity will return once more… Anne Frank

My sweeties I don’t have a better way to begin this convo today. The quote above sums it up pretty fucking decently. The last few days have been so charged with fertile chaotic energy and for me it brought about ancient karmic connections. Someone from many, many past lives walked right back in. It has been so hectic, meeting people. Yes lovelies, people from my past.

Just last night I had this amazing dinner and long-drawn out convo with an old friend who also happens to be from a famous Bollywood family. The convo was about U.G and Jiddu Krishnamurthi, Archetypes and primordial memory! And of course there were convos about old actors, directors, huge movie stars and the whole industry in general. Acid trips and Vipasana. Venus in retro does leave such astounding gems for us to glean and if we manage to obtain what we are meant to, then we are infinitely wiser. Even though we may not realise it that moment. Sometimes it takes people a whole Venus cycle to reconnect the dots.

See Venus in retro is making me revalue all my ideas and notions regarding concepts of art, cinema, beauty, finances. I mean, I have worked in the media industry for over a decade and am still very much a part of it. I have been finding closure or answers or more questions to concepts regarding these matters. I have been reevaluating my own constructs that I have created. I am sure all of you are going through these same self enquiries. I know collectively we are seriously looking into matters Venusian and this time with an introverted lens. We are journeying inside with these concepts and letting our intuition guide us.

Cinema is ruled by Neptune, the ruler of Pisces. So the topic of cinema pops up. Today there is a dreamy cinematic quality to life that you can tune into. Yes the authorship of today’s events is in your hands and boy can you make it MAGICK!

Mars in Taurus sextiles Neptune(look up your time zone) and suddenly boof! Our spiritual sensitivities are stirred. You wake up with a dreamy feeling. Your antennae are picking up vibrations from some sort of fairy tale world. Your very own fairy tale. You forget that you are a debt slave, working nine to five to pay off EMIS and other loans. You forget that you have to drive to work for an hour and a half through crowded city traffic. You forget that you are a slave to money. You shed off the incessant need to try to be NUMBER FUCKING 1.

No! You relinquish all that madness. You find a moment, far from the madding crowd and you light a candle in your heart. This day is full of potential for empathy and kindness. Why don’t you find a suitable way to explore this theme, but remember to keep it spiritual as Neptune will have you do.

If you can make everything in front of you SPIRITUAL, then the battle is won. You have created an infinity-sacred-space! If you decide to meditate today, then consciously send out healing energy to the whole world. See the love radiating from your heart chakra and kiss it forward. To help and heal. To be the balm that people need. You need to be the Goddess and the Hero today. You need to create your very own heaven. If you need a Yidam or a deity to concentrate upon, then you can invoke Blue Tara or Nila Saraswati today. Blue because of the Neptunian influence.

The Blue Tara is very effective to quell anger. She is called Ekajati and is an emanation of wrathful feminine energy. She can transmute bad karma into swift spiritual awakening. Therefore she suggested herself to me. Use her energies. Chant her mantra- OM) BHIM TARE VRIM. Visualise her as sapphire blue.

You can use lapis lazzuli or blue sapphire. Although before you don a sapphire, I would suggest you get your natal chart looked at by a gem therapist who will see Saturn’s placement before you can wear it. I have seen contradictory results with the use of sapphire. In my own life.

The position for today will be the TREE POSE! This will bring the necessary equilibrium you need. Still your mind and body in unison. Place the crystal near your heart chakra while you perform this.

I leave you with a very potent number- 719 481 71. This number will manifest your plans and thoughts into tangible reality. Write it on your left wrist, recite it mentally or just carry it in your wallet.

Thank You!

Namaste!

Aries New Moon~27/28th March 2017: Burn baby burn!

maxresdefault

“She’s mad, but she’s magic. There’s no lie in her fire.” ~ Charles Bukowski

The fire that is madness and magic, the fire of creativity in us, the fire of our desires burn bright with SEVEN planets in fire signs. Yes people! The astro is on fire! Sizzling, raw and primal…a certain madness and mayhem lurks in the air!

Oh, oh- the New Moon in Aries is conjunct Venus retrograde and that means that set intentions related to MONEY and LOVE. Of course this will have much to do with planetary positions in your natal chart, but I would say that these two motifs will play out heavily in the collective consciousness.

So I was talking all madness and mayhem, love the alliteration! But then what else do you expect of Aries energy? And so many freaking planets crowding the dance floor. There is a track in my mind. Set the world on fire…David Bowie. I cannot stop thinking of him since the dream I had with him in there. I think we were standing under a canopy of stars, staring at infinity! My dream time is full of such anecdotes and meetings, conversations and eye contact. Fuck it drove me nuts before I learnt how to understand it and accept it. I cannot say control it, for I cannot control any psychic or dreamscape visions.

It’s obviously masculine- this energy, which is why Bowie even came up in my mind. Have to check his astro for more clues. But let me not divert off and leave this piece unwritten. Something about me and not finishing up…hardcore wounds there. But I’m working on it.

Aries- what of them? They are the pioneers and trailblazers of the zodiac! Aries is the HEAD and is associated with BIRTH! But, but, but…there is a certain obstinacy and stubbornness about this sign that can lead to much problems.

A lot of people who consult with me are complaining of head related issues and please be careful yourself as well. There could be headaches and other head related issues that could crop up. I have successfully used numbers, switchwords and Energy Circles to combat headaches. Write 160 HZ AND 53 on your left arm and E=15 at the base of the nape of your neck with a blue pen. Works brilliantly. Feel the blue colour of the pen enter your bloodstream and instantly spread a coolness. You can call upon the Medicine Buddha in case you have some severe health complications.

I would like to suggest BHRAMARI PRANAYAMA to all of you. Please start the practice and you will see how this will help you deal with the fiery stress that could become too hot to handle. I had described how to practice the asana, but it is just making the article bigger than it needs to be, so please google it and watch videos to get a hang of it.

Now if possible, do this pranayama in the woods. I can tell you that you will feel like a new person after this. Just focus on the OM that you are humming is directly oscillating to the AUM of the Universe. To simplify it, just know that your sound is intrinsically connected to the hum of the Universe!

There is so much Aries energy in the air with five planets in this fire sign! Mercury, Venus, Uranus, the Sun and Moon are all here for this astral alignment. Let us run through the Aries archetype! This sign represents the EMPEROR card in the Tarot! The Patriarch!

Usually the Emperor represents a powerful and exemplary leader who is responsible for the welfare of the masses. The Emperor is no demagogue; in fact he is the benevolent father and if you internalise this archetype, then look to acknowledge your potential of mastery. Try to understand where you play the Emperor role and in whose life? I think here the Emperor is telling us to take OWNERSHIP of our own existence! Enough is enough! There is no messiah coming. We are the creators of our lives. Yes that is big responsibility, but it is also an inevitability. If there is any problem you need to address, look within to find answers at this time. Depend on you and it will work out. YOU ARE THE RULER, THE RULED AND THE RULING! Then where is the separation? Integrate this inner sovereignty in your meditation and the rest will fall into place.

Another thing which can be really beneficial to people who seek to use this fire energy would be to perform a HAVAN. Look up the link I have provided below to understand what this is and then figure out how you can simplify it to suit your needs. Neo pagans will have an idea. If you are confused, then contact me.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homa_(ritual)

Very effective are FIRE BURST MEDITATIONS, especially for people with physical pain or deep emotional trauma. Focus on the part which is painful. Bring full awareness there, continue deep breathwork and then light a ball inside your body, on the pain. Feel a small flame of light burning where you have the pain. For a wider area, visualise a larger flare. But remember to notice that this internal fire has a bluish tinge and does not feel hot. It feels warm, but NOT HOT! Feel these flames setting fire to the pain. Watch the pain burn away to ashes. Watch it with your internal eye. Then after the pain has been burnt away, thank the flame and the Universe and remember to thank the pain! Yes that pain taught you so much. That pain is your karmic friend. So please thank that pain with sincerity. If you want to know more about how to practice this meditation, email me. It is very effective with chronic pain and psychological ailments. You can even do this for someone else. You can use FULL-IMMUNITY-BE-INFINITY after the visualisation is over and you have burnt all the pain with your mind.

If this Aries New Moon is getting you angry or resentful, because you’re trying so hard to be NUMBER 1, then you can chant- BE-QUIET-SHUT-UP, or write it with blue pen on your left wrist. 55 65 569 is also very effective to control anger. Write this on your body or write it in a piece of paper and carry it in your wallet. Aries energy is very assertive and make sure you do not get caught in the lower vibrations. Things can get nasty. But one thing is sure- we will have a lot more energy. You can channelise it and make it work for you in multiple things- at work, with your spouse and in bed. Yes you can effectively use this energy to set fire to your sheets. Lol! Just don’t channel the selfishness and I’m Khaleesi, the-mother-of-fucking-dragons attitude! Don’t unleash your dragons on us…pretty please!

Now let us talk about the ADVENTURE that is coming our way! Fuck, I love a good adventure! There is a certain exciting escapade coming our way and it packs a heavy punch- sensually and financially. Since the retrogradation always connotes the internal journey, I would say we will be looking at questions like what money means to us? How we spend it? What are our inherent, deep rooted opinions about money, etc, etc. Also questions about love will surface…what does love mean to us? How do we quantify love? Do we even understand love? As a collective? As individuals?

If you are distressed and lonely, I would suggest visit animal shelters and think of fostering and then maybe adopting. Bringing in a furry companion might be the start you need and with all the Aries newness you could reinvent yourself. You could go Vegan, you could decide to concentrate on the NOW and let go of fears…everything is on the table!

Saturn(Maturity, growth, restriction, responsibility) is in Sag(Passion, wanderlust, ! Fire again! What do we poor mortals do with so much fire? Depending on where this is falling on your chart, you might be facing disappointments and learning hardcore Saturnian lessons. I have worked with many people and their Saturn issues- Sade Sati or Saturn return and one thing I can tell you that what Saturn wants you to learn, you will learn…no matter what! Come hell or high water.

Oh are you aware that Saturn is also about to freaking go retro on us? Yes from 6th April to Aug 26! And this time the FUTURE is ours to plan. Saturn will level the playing field with doses of karma, yes, but there will be solidity in whatever sticks. Ficgure out what is working and stick with it.

My natal chart has Saturn sitting with Mercury in Leo and my mind has always been Leonine! Filled with creative thought and with Saturn sitting there, I faced a lot of issues trying to bring my creative expression to the surface. It took a while, but it happened.

There is a CARDINAL T SQUARE that I have already discussed. Pluto, Uranus and Jupiter are forming it and this brings SEVEN PLANETS IN CARDINAL SIGNS which govern creativity! The Cardinal signs are active, moody, starters but hate finishing up, know how to pick themselves off the floor and continue and are often positioned as leaders.

So if anything, the astro is screaming- ACTION! Get the fuck off your couch and get doing whatever the fuck tickles your imagination! This is not the time for planning…it is the time for action.

I am suggesting a Sanskrit mantra which you could recite to invoke ACTION in your life. You can chant this to create your dream opportunities and manifest your heart’s desire.

Mantra: Shanti Mantra 
Om Saha Naavavatu
Saha Nau Bhunaktu
Saha Veeryam Karavaavahai
Tejasvi Aavadheetamastu Maa Vidvishaavahai Om

 

There are so many other aspects that I would like to talk about, but not in this article…will continue later…

I leave you with one of my favourite songs from Tagore.

Purify my life
with the purging touch of fire
Purify my life
With your blessings of searing pain
Make it pure like the gold
That passes the test of fire

Take unto you my mortal form
Make it a lamp of your divine abode
Let the flame of my song glow through night and day

The slightest of your touch on the dark frame of night
Let it spark a new star one after another
To illuminate the darkness

Let my vision be cleansed from all darkness
Whither alights my gaze may it see the light
Let my pain be ablaze and rise above despair

*Another version by Anandamayee Majumdar:

Your flaming touch, let it blaze my heart
Purify this life of mine
Clarify this life of mine
Simplify this life of mine
Glorify this life of mine; atoning, as I burn.

Lift my soul, lift my heart, a blazing torch of light
Glowing in the sky with stars that shimmer in the night
Melody, let it sear, forever, as I burn

Impel my layers of dark, let your hands alight

Kindling stars awake, evoking them with light.

May darkness disappear from all my soul and sight
Deluding senses with sanctifying light
Agony, let it sear, forever, as I burn.

Ittadakimasu! Veganism!

The Japanese clap their hand three times and repeat ITADAKIMASU to bless their food. It is an ancient practise and an essential phrase in your Japanese vocabulary. It’s often translated as “I humbly receive,” but in a mealtime setting, it’s compared to “Let’s eat,” “Bon appétit,” or “Thanks for the food.” … And though its roots are ancient, saying the phrase before meals is a fairly recent Japanese custom.

Now think…I HUMBLY RECEIVE…

Receive what? Receive sustenance! Receive energy to survive and maintain the physical body. The food is giving us what kind of energies we need to receive from the Universe. And what does that mean?

You are deciding, by the food you eat to receive those similar vibratory energies that are being fuelled by your diet. You are what you eat. Quite literally huns! Your entire body is made up of the food you eat…

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT

This phrase has come to us via quite a tortuous route. Anthelme Brillat-Savarin wrote, in Physiologie du Gout, ou Meditations de Gastronomie Transcendante, 1826:

“Dis-moi ce que tu manges, je te dirai ce que tu es.” [Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what you are].

In an essay titled Concerning Spiritualism and Materialism, 1863/4, Ludwig Andreas Feuerbach wrote:

“Der Mensch ist, was er ißt.”

That translates into English as ‘man is what he eats’.

What happens when you decide to feed yourself violence and pain? Trust me we are already on a stable diet of psychological and spiritual violence from media and the political arenas and other socio-economic platforms.

But this is direct violence. Killing sentient life for food. When you really don’t need to!

You know that you are actually healing and rebuilding your body every second of your life! You are not even aware of it. But some of us are not letting that healing take place! Because we are feeding our systems with animal food laden with grief and suffering.

You don’t need to go very far to find documentaries that will highlight the Vegan ideology for you. Just google best vegan documentaries- FORKS OVER KNIVES, EARTHLINGS, COWSPIRACY, VEGUCATED…I could go on and on. Just look this up. They will provide you with the whole gamut of information you need to embark on this lifestyle.

What I want to address here is that how can you eat meat after you know the amount of pain and suffering that that being has gone through? How can you justify this to your own self? For hunger you can sacrifice your life? Would you be okay of some stronger species ate humanity? Famed us and ate us, like we do?

And the dairy industry? What of that? It is a sickening saga of exploitation of females and babies. Please how can you support this if you are a feminist? You cannot! The taste of that burger will mean nothing to your soul. The soul will be afflicted of the pain after devouring that animal. The soul in theta will know and experience that pain. Look around us- DIS-EASE!!! DISEASE EVERYWHERE…cancer, diabetes, BP issues…the list goes on…

I have felt this you know when I have worked with non vegetarian people. Even vegetarian people. Especially in India where we believe that a child must be brought up heavily on dairy. And how wrong are they? They have no respect for the GOUMATA or the cow if they are consuming dairy. You should see the rings they put on the baby calves so they cannot suckle. It hurts the mother every time they suckle so she keeps all her milk.

The baby is then killed or sold into sexual slavery if she is a female. Is this in any way touching your soul? Does this bother you even a little bit? Does it????

I will tell you from experience ok. No hearsay shit. Listen huns, I suffered from migraines pretty much from the time I became aware. Yes and bad, bad migraines. I was raised non vegetarian in a Bengali family where it was normal to eat mutton every night. Believe me, that was my diet and the headaches kept getting worse.

I was doing yoga already. In fact these headaches had made me take up yoga at a very young age. That was the best thing that came out of this. But then listen…I moved away from home and by the time I was twenty, I turned completely vegetarian.

Just like that and I have never ever craved for or even looked back at non veg food. How did I do it? It was the most organic thing that happened to me. I have pretty much tried to force most of the shit that took place in my life. But for once…there was no need to push. It was perfect. I turned VEGETARIAN.

I sensed my aura change immediately. I lost weight and felt so very fit. My yoga abhyas or practise just got better and better…and all because of vegetarianism and then I finally went full on vegan around six years ago.

I have never looked back. In fact I was more worried about this move….but nope. It was again organic and natural. I did not need to regret or force myself….it just happened. VEGANISM JUST HAPPENED…NATURALLY…

I urge you to look into this and try veganism for a while. I could be your vegan buddy and guide if you so choose. All I am saying is, take the first baby step…try it…even if for a day.

I managed to drop so much weight every time I adhered to a raw vegan diet. And the body also takes form so much easier during yogasanas. It is sublime. Meditating on a stomach full of greens and fruits, you will see how much more activated your inner energy feels. It is instant. In a few days you will fell this change as your dress size will drop.

Your skin, hair and all parts of your body will flourish. You can finally receive from FOOD as you are not harming it. Yes plants also feel pain, but my friend, they don’t have a central nervous system and blood which is red like ours. They scream, they cry…they die…is this worth it?

The pain? The suffering? The tragedy?

Can we bring peace if we continue violence on the weak. In that equation, someone is always the weaker. Right?

Please….for the sake of animals and for the sake of mother Earth…consider veganism! Consider LIFE!images

Animal Activism as a SPIRITUAL PRACTICE

Do you feel very close to animals? When you see images of hurt animals, do you feel their pain? Will you always answer to an animal in need? No matter what! Do you have companion animals you cherish and love as family? And hope you don’t just buy pedigree animals for social status then keep them chained in your lawns or cages?

See if you are an animal empath, then you cannot FACE ANIMAL CRUELTY. You physically, emotionally, spiritually feel pain. And I don’t mean superficial pain. DEEP HEART-WRENCHING, SOUL CRUSHING PAIN. You will be howling on the floor after you’ve even started documentaries like COWSPIRACY and others. I am one such ANIMAL EMPATH. The minute I make connection to an animals, its like I am locked into her eyes. I can sense her morphological field and FEEL ALL HER EMOTIONS.

You know ANIMALS have brought me CLOSER to my HIGHER TRUTH! Do you believe it? Or are you thinking that I am talking shit? Listen yes I have helped a few animals in my childhood, like regularly feed and pet them, give them blankets,  get them vaccinated…helped an injured crow once too. But essentially I was a selfish brat living in my own la-la land.

Then I met my SPIRIT GUIDE. My first cat- Moof. They say that when you no longer cry for the past and can speak about it without feelings, you have healed. I can proudly say that each memory of tragedy in my past only brings more empathy for that person(me) suffering it. I can see the events unfold and NO I DON’T CRY. I have stopped….many, many years ago. I have healed myself from a truly devastating relationship in my teens and today I feel nothing but empathy for all the people involved, included the person I was involved with. Just catharsis. All of my past is now neatly categorised into files in my mind palace. Hahahaha. Sounds too left brain? Trust me, I’m not. But I have learnt to get things ORGANISED over the years. Too many bloody mistakes. All except that one memory.

Moof’s death. He left me after being with me for only two years and four months. I lost everything that day…16th March, 2011. The hardest day of my life and what followed was torture. I cannot explain this to you. Maybe you think why all this fuss about a cat? But you see, he was not a cat to me. He was my baby. He was my EVERYTHING.

He was the first that opened my HEART CHAKRA and I can never thank him enough for this. After he came into my life, it felt like MAGICK! He activated my compassion like never before and he will always be my baby.

Anyway, this strong activation can happen to you if you let it. If you ask an ANIMAL RESCUER or CAREGIVER if they feel MAGICK every single time they can rescue an animal. When they can treat it and feed it and when finally, the animal is homed…they feel BLISS!!! True bliss.

I have met some very passionate animal rescuers and they have found this meditation, their piece of heaven. For when you rescue and home an animal, you have invited GOD into your life. For what else is that animal in front of you, but a piece of heaven?

You know I am afraid to use the word GOD. I mean whatever you might call it- SPIRIT, VIBE, CONNECTION…The animals are your connection to the Earth! And what better way to become an Earth protector?

ANIMAL RESCUE IS SEVA, it is SPIRITUAL WORK. It is as important as meditation, if not more. According to Vivekananda, SEVA IS THE ONLY WAY TO FIND GOD! So when you throw a stone at the dog, you throw a stone at nature. For when you drive over puppies, you drive over LIFE. No matter how much puja you do. If  you see a hungry animal and don’t feed it, you starve your soul.

I care for twenty animals, so I know how difficult it can be. My friend Sameer in Lonavla has a sanctuary of about a hundred animals and ask him, has he not found life? Has he not found meaning. Yes it is HARD. Animals get sick, they get injured. It is so difficult to watch, but ANIMAL RESCUERS DO IT DAILY.

ANIMAL RESCUERS are TRULY PLUTONIAN- touched by LIFE AND DEATH…BEING FOREVER TRANSFORMED. So will you visit a local shelter and see if you can make a connect? Especially if you are going through tragedy. They are the best healers.

In fact you can even connect to animal spirits through the internet. For instance you can call upon the spirit of the wolf, the eagle, the whale…anything. You can stare at the image of the animal whose energies you seek to channel and concentrate. It works better if you find the attributes you seek and then focus on them, say loyalty(dog), horse(majestic), hummingbird(rebirth)…you get the gist. It works very well for me. And if you look for signs, then see which animal pops up. You might need to invoke that particular ARCHETYPE to address and figure our issues of your own psyche.

If you wish to contribute to Sameer’s sanctuary, please get in touch with me. He even cares for Emus, donkeys, buffaloes…basically any animal that needs to be rescued in Lonavla and around.thumb_big_other_cfbf6f51f48cbfde71163865a8238cf3
