Sucharita welcomed us to the Powertime Practice call today Saturday, April 21, 2018.  Last week the sun transited into the first sign of the zodiac, Aries.  The sun is our soul and this is  a time to purge our souls from negative energies!  In our life (in all our lives!), we have been living out our soul’s purpose and now we are learning to do it more consciously.  Dr. Pillai has come into our lives to show us how to navigate our lives with ease.   He is giving us simple techniques to make our lives more purposeful and fulfilling.  This is the Vedic New Year, a time of renewal, cleansing and new starts! We must learn to listen to our highest self and follow our intuition.  Generally speaking, our gut is correct!  When you get a gut feeling,  learn to listen!  Acknowledge the Sun each morning and thank him for our life!  Sing the Gayatri mantra each morning to the Sun.  (See last week’s email notice for the words to Gayatri mantra.)

This week we have many things going on: 11th moon, 12th moon, 13th moon, 14th and full moon.  This is a period of waxing moons (from the new moon growing to the full moon) which means we can concentrate on adding things, (watch what we eat though!), and a period of growing our abundance, health and relationships.  The moon represents the mind.  Whatever we see or think is in our minds.  The moon controls our desires, so we must be selective about our desires.

We acknowledge Vishnu on the 11th moon, chant “Om Namo Narayanaya.  Vishnu’s and Lakshmi’s energies are available to us on the 11th and 12th moons.  These are the gods that are in charge of abundance, so it’s a great time to manifest and get the blessings of wealth consciousness.  Chant “Shreem Brzee” for Lakshmi every day! 

The 13th moon is Pradosham time, a time to bust karma.  This is a window to throw out doubts! 

By the 14th moon, we come to the realm of Lord Ganesha, Remover of all Obstacles, seen and unseen.  Access Ganesha’s energy for protection- he will run interference for you!  Dr. Pillai tells us to pray to Ganesha before we even get off the bed each morning.  Chant his seed sound “Gum Gum Gum”.  The comes the full moon

This full moon is special and called Chitra Purnima.  This is a time to get blessings from Chitragupta, the lieutenant of the God of justice and dharma (duty), Yama. He maintains the good and bad records of everyone on earth in a heavenly database known as the ‘Akashic Records’, which is your divine personal logbook.  When we propitiate Chitragupta, he will free us up from negative congested energy.  The first full moon of the new Vedic year is always Chitra Pournami.  We can create and manifest new beginnings at this time. He especially takes care of Ketu afflictions. Ketu is the shadow planet who  rules the Nakshatras of Ashwini, Magha and Moola.  Participating in Chitra Purnima also helps if your are running Ketu as your major or minor planetary influences.  Ketu is associated with the ancestors.  AstroVed has free report which tells you what your Nakshatra is and what planets you are running.   Learn more The full moon is a time to donate to the needy and hungry.  Feeding the hungry is the most blessed and spiritual thing one can do. According to scriptures, donating food to people can free you from problems and provide success in all walks of life. As you participate in food feeding services to people, you can attract positive energy and peace of mind.

It is Narasimha’s birthday on April 27, 2018.  Dr. Pillai says “Narasimha, half-lion, half-man being, is an Angel who comes and rescues people in difficulty. Narasimha appears as fire; he’s half lion, half human, very frightening look. Even the God of Death is afraid of him. If you pray to him, he will protect you. AstroVed has offerings to celebrate the descent of Narasimha, the Guardian Angel.” AstroVed is offering services for Narasimha here.
