Namaste  fellow spiritual travelers! 

Sucharita opened the call by telling us how important it is to tune into the shaktis or energies of the day, month and year.  She mentioned that this morning she had trouble getting onto the call so she immediately went and lit her Saturn lampSaturn rules Saturday and Hanuman is the overlord to Saturn.  Saturn can be a particularly trying deity who can slow us down and show us what karma is in store for us!  Saturn likes sesame oil lamps so it always helps to that is an excellent practice to do on Saturdays. 

It is so important to meditate, to slow our minds down and allow Dr. Pillai to give us the tools and techniques for the best way to mediate and connect with our higher selves.  Who are these Divine Beings?  They are actual beings that are watching and helping us if we raise our vibrations up to higher states of consciousness.  They can remove obstacles for us.  No matter what our spiritual background are, we can all use these teachings to connect with the Divine. 

The upcoming week is going to be FULL of powerful time energies!
