Special Days for Meditation — August 2020




The aim of the Pralaya period is to help everyone transform. One of its functions is to bring to light all the negative aspects, insecurities, anxieties, fears and stress – both at the individual level and the global level. Many are deep-rooted issues which we tend to overlook and are very subtle. These are not easy to surface and identify generally but an occurrence like the pandemic brings all these to the fore.

How do we approach such tough periods? Normally when we face such difficult periods, our tendency is to start blaming the external factors and also complain and grumble. While the external aspects may be a factor, look within also. During such times, many of insecurities, inner issues and fears become more evident. We have to face our fears and work on them. The more we heal these within, the issues on the external also resolve themselves.

We identify these issues one by one and then accept that we have it. The human tendency is to put a brave face and try to underplay such issues. Mentally accepting is important so that they can be addressed properly. If there are any practical steps that you can take, make the necessary efforts. We can take the help of Light also which will hasten the process of healing them. Take the help of dark-Navy Blue Light and keep sending it to the aspects you identify within. Regular practice along with less complaining will yield wonderful results.

Contemplating on the issues also yield new insights and we can deal with them better subsequently. Try seeing the issues from a larger perspective also. For example, ask yourself what is the present situation trying to convey– it can be the pandemic, the political developments, or issues happening in your work front… Some are obvious, while some will be subtle.

••      ••       ••

The present pandemic has impacted all in one form or the other. On observation, it is the individual’s attitude towards this that has defined how the period has been for them. For those who have complained and whined, the issues have only magnified. For those who have been able to tune into the positive aspects, in spite of the difficulties, are having a better period.

Humanity has an opportunity to come out of this in a much better way and improve upon all the earlier shortcomings. There are prospects for fresh beginnings which can reshape our future. It would ease the difficult period and we can make good strides towards Satya Yuga. The global leaders are passive to this unfortunately as power and money are still the factors influencing their decision making.

At the individual level, there is the uncertainty of the future. Spiritualising our lives and Surrender will help us through this. The key is to learn contentment and to be grateful in all possible areas.

This is the period to internalise. The more we can tune-up with the changes and the new energies, we are the ones to benefit. The present period is very opportune to connect within. Most have lost their ability to be guided by their Inner Self and it is time to start re-establishing this. We begin by practising more Pranayama with Light. This helps in vitalising us and clearing many communication channels. It also improves our health and positivity.

••      ••       ••

This entire month, we will have the presence of various Divine Personalities on Earth. We have the presence of Goddess Mahalakshmi now. We will have the presence of Lord Krishna and Lord Ganesha later.

The energies they bring and their love will help each individual wonderfully through this phase, as long as (we) make use of it and apply it in our living. Unless we implement, the energies by themselves will be of no use.

Connect to each of them and pray for guidance. We will receive answers and direction. The more we are able to tune into these, we can improve ourselves much quicker.

••      ••       ••

This month, the Rishis will also invoke a Purusha to guide humanity through the month. We can refer to him as the “August Purusha”. His energies will help each individual with the aspects of mental peace, reducing stress and anxiety and most importantly being content and positive.

Connect to Him every day and take his help. His energies will also help us to improve our physical and mental health. The Rishis also suggest the following technique. This will help in connecting with Him better and also experiencing the special energies.
