Sucharita welcomed us today, December 23, 2017, to this Powertime Practice call with an introduction on what these calls are all about: the Energy of Time.  What is the energy of Time?  The energies of time are associated with the position of the stars and planets in the sky and where they lie in our birth charts.  Everyone asks the same deep questions, such as, what is the meaning of life and what are we doing here?  On our quest for the answers to these questions, we have found Dr. Pillai who is teaching us the Energies of Time and how are we going to be able to take advantage of these times. 

We may have noticed that last week that we may been out of sorts, feeling low or overwhelmed.  If we look at the energy of time, we see that the sun has just transited into a new sign.  It was the shortest day of the year-the winter Solstice.  We need to dive deep inside, and do our spiritual practices and tap into the energies of Time to get ahead of the game  and feed our souls.

Today is the 6th moon.  This is associated with Lord Muruga and Mars.  This may make us a little bit feisty!  Christmas Day is the 8th Moon.  It is half way from the start to the finish of the Moon phases.  Be careful because it can seem like there is conflict looming. 

The 11th moon is coming up  this week.  This is called Ekadasi.  At this time of year it’s called Vaikunta Ekadasi. This is a time when Vishnu can give you money miracles.  Dr. Pillai is giving us the tools to have abundance by sharing these power times.  He wants us to live 200% lives-materially and spiritually. 

Sucharita tells us that our memories are our thoughts.  When we see anyone we know, we see them through the memories of the past.  Our thoughts are our karma!  When we are stuck to our memories, we create the present to match our past thoughts.  Everyone has their own memories of the past, and they are all different and none of them are accurate!  This is what happens when we are not tuned into the Divine. Tune into the Divine and learn the time energies (shaktis) and we can shape our future into how we want it to be!  We have total control over every moment and how it will be played out. 

Sucharita tells us that the soul is accessed through the eyes and karma comes in through the eyes!  Check your eyes, look into them in a mirror.  Gazing into a mirror, you will see your soul:  the eyes are the windows into the soul.  Go from your forehead back into the middle of your brain.  This is the pineal gland, the Third Eye, The Seat of the Soul!  In just a couple of minutes you have accessed your higher self.  If only for a brief moment, this is extremely advantageous.  Your soul is way more intelligent than your silly thoughts! 

Someone mentioned in the “chat” that they are going through their Sade Sati, a seven and a half year period ruled by Saturn.  The word ‘Sade Sati’ literally means ‘Seven and Half’ and denotes the 7 1/2 year period of Shani, the planet Saturn. While Saturn itself remains a feared planet, this period in particular is considered astrologically, as a time of trials and tribulations. This ‘difficult’ period begins when planet Saturn enters the zodiac sign that falls immediately before an individual’s zodiac sign of birth, and will continue during the time when Saturn will transit that sign and also the next 2 signs. As Saturn remains in a sign for about 2 ½ years, it takes a total of 7 ½ years to cross over the 3 zodiac signs. A person will normally be required to undergo a Sade Sati period on more than one occasion in a lifetime.

This can be a difficult period to go through because Saturn teaches lessons-sometime very difficult lessons.  Saturn slows things down so we can clean up all the karma that we have created over the years.  She mentions a book called The Greatness of Saturn byRobert Svoboda, that everyone and especially those going through the Sadi Sate, should read.  There is much to learn through the mythology of the planets.  Saturn says “Slow down and smell the roses!”  Be compassionate with yourself!  Saturn is patient and compassionate and helps you to get through the struggle.  He slowly helps you to scrub your soul like an expensive pot that you have gotten encrusted with burned-on food!  The pot is worth it, so you keep on scrubbing.  You end up with a shiny new pot!  Every moment is a fresh start! 

Sucharita talked about Christmas and Jesus the Christ, saying He was so compassionate and strong and left us with the Holy Spirit.
