  5. Embrace the Change!


Sucharita welcomed us to the Sundays with Sucharita call this morning Sunday Oct. 22, 2017.  She tells us that we will perhaps be changing our call time as well as our day change Change is always good!  She will keep us updated on all the new changes.

She reminds us to always live in the now!  Dr. Pillai teaches us to learn what the Time Shaktis are and learn how to take advantage of the energies available.  Check the Panchang on AstroVed to see where the moon, planets and stars are.  The Archetypes or Divine Beings that reside within us, correspond to different times of the day, week, month and year.  At this moment in time we are connecting with Lord Muruga, the warrior god.  This time of the year is called Skanda Shasti or 6 Nights of Muruga.  If we dive deep inside in our meditation we can merge with the consciousness of Lord Muruga.  Imagine the shaft of his weapon (the Vel) going up our spine and the head of the vel ending in our third eye.  Carry his statue or gaze upon a larger statue on your altar.  As we pay attention to the Divine Beings, their energies become available for us to use. 

The Sun is in Libra right now and this is a good time to balance our spiritual aspirations.  There are a lot of things shifting in our lives during this time of the year.  There are many things happening in the world right now that may be disconcerting, and it’s OK to be empathetic, but not debilitated!  Dr. Pillai gives us the tools to help us to remain calm and detached.  Life is not who we are, but who we are are being! One of the tools that we can use to remove negativity and karma is the rolling of lemons or limes or pumpkins on our shoulders, joints, third eyes, or any body part that is full of pain!  These objects suck the karma out of us and then we destroy them by cutting or smashing and throwing them in the garbage or the garden.

Today is the 4th moon, another important Time Shatki to pay attention to.  This is one of the times of Ganesha, the elephant headed God and remover of all obstacles.  He will bring in the Goddess energy to us. His seed sound is Gum Gum Gum.  Imagine a reddish orange light at the base of our spines during meditation.

We are half way through the 6 Nights of Muruga, but Sucharita tells us it only takes one second to connect with him, so we still have plenty of time to let Muruga into our consciousness.  Muruga is going to protect us from any of the questionable astrological influences that we may be experiencing.  We are always protected, if we know how to call on him.  Use the karma removing technologies to call on Muruga.  Pumpkins are good to use this time of year, because they are readily available in the fall and they absorb a LOT of negative karma! 

We connected with Lord Muruga with his chant during our meditation. The word “mantra” means protection and Muruga’s chant is “SARAVANABAVA”. 

Important Upcoming Events This Week: Check the Pillai Center and the AstroVed Event Calendars for other upcoming events. Depending on where you live, the day of the week will be different.  Check the Panchang with your location to see when you should be observing the rituals.

6th Moon – Muruga’s Power Time

The 6th Waxing Moon (called Shasti in Sanskrit) is the most appropriate time to win the battle against negativity and evil eyes. This is a peak day for absorbing the energies of Lord Muruga (a divine warrior/healer) and the planet Mars. Muruga specializes in solving problems such as credit card debt, legal issues, health problems, etc. Call on Muruga by chanting Om SaRaVaNaBaVa on this day and by pouring milk/juice/water over a vel.

It further enhances family relationship and removes fear and mental blocks.

Sucharita reminds us to carry a vel with us always to remind us of the powers of Muruga and for protection.  Lord Muruga is a Pleiadian god who is in charge of a healing army.  Chant OM Saravanabavaya Namaha. There is a ritual event being performed at AstroVed for Muruga on October 26.  Read more here.  She tells us to watch what we are eating and to eat pure organic food if possible.  For these 6 days it may be better to cook your own food so as not to take on the energy (or negative karma) of the other people who have prepared the food. 

When we become overwhelmed with what we need to do spiritually-what rituals, what mantras, what prayers-we just need to ask Dr. Pillai to tell us what to do!
