Goodbye Sundays with Sucharita, Hello Powertime Practice

Goodbye Sundays with Sucharita, Hello Powertime Practice

  Sucharita bid us a good morning this Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017 on our final Sundays With Sucharita call!  We will be switching our call day from Sundays to Saturdays at 10 AM ET (7 AM PT) on starting Saturday, November 18, 2017.  The calls will be taking place through the video platform Zoom and will be called Powertime Practice.  If you are receiving emails from Sundays with Sucharita, we will send you access details prior to November 18th. If you are NOT already on the email list, sign up here. Sucharita will still be offering her pearls of wisdom that are so priceless and Radha, our astrologer, will still be sharing about the different aspects and energies of the stars and planets during our weeks to come.  We will still be looking at how we use our time and learn how to use time more wisely.  Saturday is ruled by Saturn and is a great teacher.  He wants to bring the ancient teachings to the forefront and he will help us to find our real purpose in life.  “Know thyself!” Saturn will grind you down, but then he will shine you up!  Saturday is a perfect day to connect with the great teacher Saturn! Dr. Pillai says that we must change the thought processes that have brought us to wherever  we are, wherever our karma has brought us.  Dr. Pillai is giving us the tools we need to do this and change our destiny.The tools are the mantras, the chants, the meditations, the remedies and rituals-all the spiritual practices we are learning.  Here is a quote from Dr.... read more
Out with the Old, In with the New!

Out with the Old, In with the New!

Sucharita welcomed us this morning on the Sundays with Sucharita by conveying the news that our call will be changing to Saturdays at 10 AM EST (7 AM PST) starting on November 18th!  The name will change to Power Times, and it will still be free. Our last Sundays with Sucharita Call will Sunday, November 5th. We will be focusing more on learning from the great teacher, Saturn, at this opportune time when Saturn has transited into the most idealist sign, Sagittarius.  Saturn is a very karmic planet.  Radha, our astrologer, will be telling us what to expect with this transit.  How does Saturn affect our spirituality, our karma?  Saturn slows things down and allows us to persist, and persevere.  He helps us to understand what we should be doing in our lives.  He can however, also have a negative side because he can cause us to doubt.  Saturn is delivering special karmic lessons to over 1/3 of the entire population of the world at any given time. Sometimes a tough Saturn transit can make you to withdraw from your family and friends.  However Saturn can also give the greatest blessings that no one can take away. Sade Sati is a 7 ½ year period when Saturn is restructuring your mind and life. So much to learn from Saturn!  OMG!  But there are many positive sides as well.  Our souls each have their own journey to be on and we each have to figure out our own paths.  Not the path of our parents, family and friends.  This is our own karma.  We are here together with Dr. Pillai... read more
Embrace the Change!

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... read more

From Sunday, October 15 – Oct 18 Diwali is celebrated by cleaning out your home and office, lighting lamps, and invoking Lakshmi, the Goddess of Prosperity. From October 19 or 20 through 25, Skanda Shasti will be a great opportunity for Muruga to remove debts, illness, enemies, and negativity from your life. Then on October 26th, Saturn will enter Sagittarius for the next 3 years. You can expect a more hopeful, optimistic  time where you can work hard and advance in your goals of creating good fortune in your life. Watch transit predictions based on your Vedic moon sign here.

Time to Reap the Benefits of Shreem Brzee

Time to Reap the Benefits of Shreem Brzee

  Sucharita welcomed us on the Sundays with Sucharita Call today Oct 8 2017, saying that we are coming up on our 4 year anniversary of the Sundays with Sucharita Calls!  Time flies when you’re having fun!  Time flies even when you’re not having fun, so let’s choose to have fun.  Sucharita tells us we have found each other here on the calls for a reason.  Something in our souls is telling us that we need the knowledge that Dr. Pillai is offering to anyone who is ready to hear it.  This is Dr. Pillai’s gift to humankind! It’s the Thanksgiving holiday in Canada, so let’s all join in on this energy of Gratitude!  We must appreciate everything that the Divine has given us in life and we can multiply our blessings when we tap into this energy together! Gratitude is the attitude!  Sucharita mentions that it is a 4th moon today and we have learned that this is a Ganesha moon.  Ganesha is an elephant headed god who rides on a mouse!  He is the remover of all obstacles, seen and unseen.  We pay attention to Ganesha on the 4th and the 14th moon.  Gum Gum Gum!  Gum is his seed sound.  Also the moon is entering into Venus.  This is a time to manifest!  Tuesday is the 6th moon, the time of Lord Muruga.  She mentions that the 6 Days of Muruga or Skanda Shasti, is coming up soon and we can start to tap into his energy at this time.  Wednesday is Kala Bhairava energy.  Mars is entering Virgo, so this will give us the drive... read more
Shreem Brzee!

Shreem Brzee!

  Today was our first time at using the video conferencing platform Zoom, for our Sundays with Sucharita call this Sunday, October 1, 2017.  And we are starting one hour earlier at 10 AM EDT (7 AM PDT) so we had many different variables on our call!  Life is ever unfolding!  Sucharita opened the call by reminding us why we come together every Sunday.  We come to find our higher selves!  We come to share with our fellow travelers and We come to try to figure out which teachings of our master Dr. Pillai we need to concentrate on.  Dr. Pillai wants us all to focus our attention on Shreem Brzee at this time.  Shreem Brzee is a mantra that Dr. Pillai brought to us about 20 years ago, revealed to him by Vishvamitra, a venerated rishi of ancient India.  Vishvamitra was a king who wanted to bring abundance to his subjects.  It took him 1500 years of meditation to discover these phonemes and this is what Dr. Pillai has given us.  Sucharita talked about the new programs that Dr. Pillai is offering us called Wealth Rising.  There are two different programs-the Gold program (targeted for people who already make $5 – $10K/month and want to go beyond) and the Silver Program (for those who are currently making up to $5K/month.).  Jai Radha will be teaching the Gold section and Paru will be teaching the Silver.  Sucharita will be performing Fire Labs for the program every Friday night.  A fire lab is an intense method of reaching the Divine Beings and these particular fire labs will be focused on... read more
Goddesses Rule!

Goddesses Rule!

  Starting October 1, 2017, Sundays with Sucharita will have a NEW TIME – 10:00 a.m. ET. You will now have the option to view the LIVE video broadcast on Zoom Conference. You can still join via teleconference call if you prefer (see details on your Sundays with Sucharita email this week). Today Sucharita welcomed us by saying the teachings Dr. Pillai gives to us are coming directly from the Divine…unfiltered!  He teaches that every day of the week has a certain energy and our lives will be much easier and abundant if we can recognize and utilize these energies.  And how do we get to this energy?  Sucharita tells us “The way in is the way out!”  We must dive deeply inside and connect with our higher self.  We must take one step at a time!  Learning about astrology is one of those steps.  Astrology will tell us about the energies of the hour, day, week and month that are affecting us and when we learn about what’s affecting us we can avoid pitfalls and take advantage of positive influences.  The Sun has transited into Virgo and this is going have a very different energy than Leo, where he just left.  Virgo is a perfectionist. But also a worrywart!  But how do we know which actions to take?  Look at the Panchang and see what the energies are.  The Panchang is located on the homepage of AstroVed.  Dr. Pillai is stressing the chanting of “Shreem Brzee”.  This is a very practical mantra because it is goal oriented and it washes away karma that is blocking our happiness.  Shreem... read more
Sun Enters Virgo

Sun Enters Virgo

The brilliant Sun entered Virgo yesterday on September 16th and will be moving there through October 17, 2017. For the past month, Sun was in his own sign, Leo, which is a fiery royal zodiac of leadership. You may have experienced this as a time to promote yourself more and make strides in personal development. You may have felt some discomfort as the sun burned away something that was no longer serving you, such as old ways of thinking and behaving. Now we have an energetic shift in the “weather” as Sun occupies Virgo. Virgo is the most practical and detail-oriented of the signs. It is ruled by Mercury, a planet of intellect, communication, business, and wealth. This month Sun is going to be lighting up Virgo qualities like impeccability, striving for perfection through managing the practical details of life. You may be inspired to purify your diet to improve your health. Or you may find yourself cleansing, organizing, or redecorating your home, office, or wardrobe to reflect a new higher vision of yourself. You may need to dive into the details of life and manage them in order to solve problems related to health, enemies, and legal challenges. In Sanskrit, Virgo is called Kanya. Virgo is symbolized by a virgin in a boat with grains in one hand and a light in the other. The virgin symbolizes purity and love of the Goddess energy. Grains are the st aff of life, which show us that Virgo energy includes being in touch with how to survive. Light is higher consciousness. Virgo reminds us that deep within matter is pure... read more
