Lunar Phases and Nine Nights of the Goddess: Get Life-Changing Boons

Lunar Phases and Nine Nights of the Goddess: Get Life-Changing Boons

    If you look back to ancient India and the two epics Ramayana and Mahabharata, you might be surprised to find that women, along with innumerable Goddesses, held the highest status next to sages, kings, crown princes, and Gods. In this feminine hierarchy, the mother, the queen, the wife, the eldest sister, older women, female seers (or Rishis), goddesses and demi-goddesses in the heavens, rivers, lakes and forests, represented higher wisdom, strength, power, righteousness, beauty and devotion. Their role was to nourish, uplift and protect humanity from demons, wars, ignorance or evil. Both the human and celestial females were revered, honored and widely celebrated. Goddess power  Then, it’s no surprise that today the Goddess energy is celebrated with great fervor during nine magical nights known as Navaratri—Nava means nine, and ratri means nights. There are four to five Navaratri celebrations throughout the solar year. The most important Navaratri comes after the monsoon season, during the first nine phases of the waxing lunar cycle. This is a special Goddess festival ushering in three formidable archetypes: Durga, the warrior Goddess. Lakshmi, the wealth Goddess. Saraswati, the wisdom Goddess. These Goddesses catalyze all the existing powers of the feminine celestials. They’re archetypes of infinite power, justice, beauty, truth, victory, and wealth for all. The powers of the Goddesses of autumn Navaratri—in the Vedic month Ashwin, when the Sun enters Virgo in the constellation Uttara Phalguni—are said to bring great miracles to those who connect with Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati. A host of other Goddesses with supernormal powers are believed to restore intelligence and destroy demons that hoard humanity’s gold. Moreover, the...

  This week we are into Navaratri or Nine Nights of the Goddess.  This period of time is split into the energies of three goddesses – Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati. These goddesses are going to give us strength, courage and consciousness to manifest whatever we want on this earth plane, whether it be material or spiritual wealth. Learn more. This nine nights is going to end with the Birthday of Rama, a man-god.  Dr. Pillai says, “The story of Rama cannot be fathomed by human intelligence. Rama’s story is happening all the time in one galaxy or another. Rama sacrificed more than any Avatar, absorbing human suffering in totality. The 9th Waxing Moon (Rama Navami) is his birthday. Birthdays of Gods provide a link to them. Therefore, it is very important to meditate, worship or visit their temples on this day. Spend the 9th day thinking of Rama and praying to him.” Read more about Rama here.

You are deserving of a 200% life: 100% material + 100% spiritual, which Lakshmi represents.  She can help you realize your full potential. During Navaratri Nights 4-6, Goddess Lakshmi visits the earth plane in her fiercest form to destroy poverty consciousness.  Lack of prosperity is a real issue for many of us in the world, but this is curable. Call on Lakshmi during Nights 4-6 of Navaratri to destroy the disease of poverty and live your most abundant life. Ritual to Connect with Goddess Lakshmi Lakshmi’s mantra is ‘Shreem Brzee’.

Welcome the Goddesses!

The Goddess energy needs to be woken up inside of all of us, men and women. This is a time to clean up everything in our lives! Clean your office, bedroom, workspace, (every place, including our minds!) because clutter causes blockages.  All those old things that we have held onto for years and decades have memories (karma) attached to them so this is the time to get rid of them.  Don’t continually go through your garbage, examining it…Just take it out to the curb and let it go!  The Goddess energy is the energy that is caring and wants to create comfort and abundance in our lives. This is the motherly unconditional love that we all desire. The first three nights are for Durga (energy and power), 2nd three nights are for Lakshmi (abundance) and the 3rd three nights are for Saraswati (wisdom).  Sucharita talked five things that encompass our lives-Time, Energy, Money, Karma and Thought. We need to get control of those things and then we will finally have control of our lives.  We do this by doing our spiritual practices faithfully each day and then we will be bathed in our own Divinity. Important Upcoming Events: Navaratri or Nine Nights of the Goddess – Oct 1– 9, 2016 Dr. Pillai has designated 10 different Goddesses (in addition to Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati) to propitiate during this event-one for each day.  Today, Sunday Oct. 2, is the 2nd night of Navaratri.  The 2nd Goddess is Tara – ‘Tara’ in Sanskrit means ‘to Transcend’. Goddess Tara is the deliverer and savior to take us through any difficult situation. This...

Sun Enters Taurus

The Sun entered Taurus on Saturday, May 14, 2016 and will continue moving through this luxury-loving sign until June 14th. Taurus is called Vrishabha in Sanskrit. It is a grounded and wealthy sign that brings in energies of the arts, beauty, and accumulating prosperity. It is a fixed earth sign. Taurus’ symbol is a bull, which is a very steady, hard-working animal. Bulls have all 4 feet firmly planted on the ground, which tells us that Taurus is a very stable environment in which to create wealth. There is a statue of a bull on Wall Street, and we call it a “bull market” is when stocks are going up. As the natural 2nd house of the zodiac, Taurus is associated with earning and saving money, food & eating, and persuading people through speech. Taurus is ruled by Venus. Sun moving through Taurus is going to light up Venus’ energy of wealth, beauty, and the arts. On Thursday May 19th Venus will enter Taurus too. With Venus going through his own territory, he will be able to express himself and do his work optimally through June 12th. Lakshmi rules Venus, so connect with her Goddess consciousness of wealth and beauty this month. Shreem Brzee! Appreciate beauty and the arts. Enjoy social outings with the family. Finances and family may come to the forefront this month. This is a good time to work toward stable finances. Reorganize your money consciousness.
