Top 9 Ascension Theories and Myths

A belief in higher realities, higher dimensions, heavenly worlds and higher beings or deities has been present throughout the ages of earthly religion, while science too believes in evolution, DNA shifts and dawn of the space-age. As human intelligence and spirituality develops where do we go from here? A few top theories and myths regarding Ascension might help us decide what seems right to us.

  1. Scientific Evolution: We have evolved over billions of years into homo sapiens at the top of the food chain through natural selection through which our DNA has slowly transformed to its present state and the next step would be and natural or engineered evolution into a more intelligent space-faring specie with better survival skills according to the law of the fittest so that we can colonize other planets too. Moral code: Human survival. Danger: To other speciesevolution-2305142_960_720
  2. Mainstream Religions: Hindu humans are allotted to Swarga/ Naraka, Christian to Heaven/ Hell, Muslims to Jannat/ Jahannam where they are subject to either terrible agony or delightful sensory pleasures on completing earth life depending on how obedient they have been to God’s will in the earthly matrix in which God has placed us. Moral code: Patriarchal and faith group based. Danger: Religious superiority and fear based ideashell-735995_960_720
  3. Ancient Beliefs: Divine avatars, gods and goddesses ascend or descend from their abodes such as Vaikuntha, Asgard, Avalon or Mt. Olympus to display their powers while our ancient legacy remains buried or lost as Atlantis or Dwarka until the Golden Age of wealth and wisdom on earth would return depending on various celestial alignments to last until ages turn to descending cycles again. Moral code: Subject to cycles of time. Danger: Passive and earth-boundyugas
  4. Science-Fiction: Multidimensional aliens from advanced Galactic Federations who are of much higher level than us and are observing us will come in their spaceships and teleport spiritual humans for advanced DNA transformation or return some of us who are aliens on earth back home to our various aliens and hybrid star-families when we complete our missions and hail our ships. Moral code: Discover your galactic origin. Danger: Being left behindufo-1622863_960_720
  5. New Age: Various Ascended Masters, Deities and Angels are constantly channeling in and out of us in their spirit form depending on receptivity so that we can transmit their divine messages of peace, love and light to all humanity. Moral code: Be a higher channel of pure ‘positivity’. Danger: Could be fluffy and superficialangel
  6. Spiritualism: Spirit in the form of deceased loved ones from heaven are constantly around us giving us accurate psychic evidence through selected gifted mediums of the spirit world to comfort and guide us on earth until we also die and turn into spirits and comfort our loved ones similarly. Moral code: Believe in spirits. Danger: Personal transformation may not be required spirit
  7. Simulation: We are placed in a digital hologram matrix of an intense virtual reality by advanced AI who may have programmed it based on certain rules and mathematical codes as the seemingly solid world through a complex neural-interactive simulation interface where sensory input of various signals creates a perceived reality. Moral code: Ignorance is bliss. Danger: Stuck in make-believebinary-3175073_960_720
  8. Human Awakening: We have been controlled by corporate, political and financial systems in a man-made matrix where we are enslaved to work and pay taxes to help the super-rich ‘cabal’ get richer while we struggle and suffer diseases to be more dependent on pharma and the ‘control system’. Moral code: Fight the system. Danger: Themcabal
  9. Consciousness: We are a singular consciousness dreaming up or manifesting our multidimensional interconnected realities based on our inner vibrations of either our subconscious mental or emotional patterns or through conscious free will. Ascension is about raising our consciousness to be more ‘awake’ and return to unity. Moral code: You create your own reality. Danger: It could still be a simulated reality show.universal being

Seven Ways to Raise the Image of the Divine Feminine

The Divine Feminine has regained its importance in the global arena of spiritual awakening. While western countries are seeing a steady collapse of patriarchal religious systems, women in eastern nations are also fighting against their rampant rape and abuse. What we truly need is to awaken the goddess within ourselves as the divine feminine or creative power in each one of us, regardless of gender or belief. Here are a few ways we can achieve that.

  1. Goddess as Empowered Feminine and not just Idols: Hordes of people in many states of India immerse larger than life goddess idols in water to celebrate Navratri each year after praying to these idols including Saraswati, Laxmi, Kali and the nine forms of Durga, in the hope of wish-fulfillment for career, relationships, protection and so on. It is indeed ironic that India is also a country notorious for rape and domestic abuse as depicted in the awareness campaign through images commissioned by Save the Children and Save the Sisters.  Instead of merely worshiping the goddess as a celestial or heavenly figure of religious belief, we can begin to see the goddess as nature and the power within all of us. When we flood our eco-system with garbage including idols in water-bodies we are not really serving the goddess or pleasing the divine feminine in any manner. Depictions of the goddess too need to transform to those that are self-empowering and not merely based on cultural stereotypes of domesticated feminine. (Img courtesy India Today).goddess_all_660_090613011540
  2. Acceptance of Menstruation and Feminine Physiology: The idea of feminine periodic cycles and reproductive process as something painful or shameful has been promoted in western texts such as the Bible where God is said to have denounced women as ‘unclean’ during periods and cursed Eve with labor pain. However the practice of regarding women as unclean during menstruation has been followed even in temples of India and Thailand. Male and female devotees of lord Ayappa have been vehemently protesting the supreme court verdict allowing females of menstrual age to visit the Sabrimala temple in Kerala, India. Some stories describe how the celibate lord could be ‘distracted’ by menstrual women between 10 to 50 years of age in order to keep menstruating women away, while some people in India believe menstruation to be impure as a basis of the restriction upon female visitors to many temples. There is a temple dedicated to worship of ‘the bleeding goddess’ Kamakhya in Assam, India, where ironically women are not allowed to enter during periods.  Perhaps women should simply reject such systems that condone their menstruation by respecting themselves and nature as divine.kamakhyawomen
  3. Virginity versus Higher Consciousness: The notion that a woman is holiest when she is a virgin is popularized in most patriarchal faiths, especially the Bible that notes that the Son of God was born miraculously of the ‘sinless’ Virgin Mary.  Feminine sexuality and sinfulness might have been equated in such faiths, however virginity is also highly desirable when it comes to sex and marriage with the Koran promising male Muslim faithfuls the pleasures of ravenous mating with several virgins in heaven, and the Bible being replete with references of very young virgins being sought after for marriage. In-fact a woman accused of not being a virgin at the time of marriage could be stoned to death according to Deuteronomy 22:13 by the men of the city if her parents could not produce evidence in front of the elders at the city gates of blood collected from the hymen on a cloth after the first night of intercourse. These archaic notions that prize a woman’s virginity as if she were an object of sexual consumption and treat her as ‘defiled’ if not a virgin need to have no place in society with focus instead on inner awakening and higher consciousness for both men and women as equals.virgin church72-houris
  4. Shiva-Shakti as Consciousness within us: Shiva is traditionally shown as the ultimate super-consciousness and creator yet visualized primarily in masculine form. The feminine as ‘his Shakti’ or power of nature whom Shiva controls like the Ganges in his hair is sometimes seen as the outer universe and not as higher consciousness. In ancient texts such as Vigyan Bhairava Tantra, lord Bhairava gives his gems of superior cosmic knowledge to the goddess Bhairavi to clear her ‘doubts’. Images such as these seem to promote a belief that feminine is usually the unconscious, receptive, passive or submissive self who needs to ‘respect’ the masculine and learn from masculine versions of god. Masculine superiority in the garb of tantra can often lead to sexual exploitation of female disciples in the name of ‘shakti’ while male gurus become the powerful ‘shiva’ figures of today. We need more female gurus as enlightened masters guiding our world into ascension, so that the feminine is not seen only as the phallus worshiping ‘sexual energy’ in tantra but as the super-consciousness within us. We need to be our own Shiva and our own Shakti regardless of the gender we were born in, instead of confirming to divine masculine or feminine stereotypes. lord-shiva-hd-wallpapers-1080p-6
  5. Independent Women and not merely Devoted Wife: In many images Mahalaxmi is depicted as massaging the feet of Mahavishnu as he sleeps and dreams up the universes. Goddesses such as Sita and Sati have burnt in fire to prove their love and purity to their husbands in this complex religious matrix that exonerates the image of ‘sati-savitri’ (virtuous wife) who regard husbands as ‘pati-parmeshwar’ (supreme lord). Religious images seem to confirm the notion of a devoted wife and mother who serves her master or lord with utmost sincerity. Few would depict the goddess as a self-realized master of herself. Independence and free will are not always a virtue of the goddesses who have been used to receiving roles of carers, supporters and consorts. We need to transform the image of the feminine to one of true inner power and personal independence. (Img http://www.hinduwebsite.com)vishnu-01sati-pratha
  6. Female Masters and not just Masculine Gurus: Images of male yogis, masters, sadhus, high-profile gurus, and saints, adorn our timelines with fewer feminine figures in the limelight. Men with beards, turbans and saffron robes are always in the forefront leading thousands of people in ‘satsangas’ and meditation groups. Women while being leaders in every professional front are yet to be seen as ‘gurus’ in major ways, although there are many who might be coming to the forefront slowly, yet most of these have been disciples and devotees of male gurus.nityaDayaMata
  7. Feminine Depictions of Angels and Ascended Masters: We are used to seeing a lot of masculine ascended masters in literature and published works, including names such as Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ, Mahavtar Babaji and the ‘great white brotherhood’ of the new-age including Sananda, Ashtar and Sanat Kumara with the female masters being primarily Mother Mary and a few feminine deities of mythology. Similarly Archangels are usually depicted as male with feminine twin-flames for some of the qualities and traits they resonate with, for example Archangel Michael with Archeia Faith. Instead we need to see Angels and Archangels as gender-free energies of our higher self and the Archeias as their inner qualities that help us awaken to the higher levels of consciousness. We need to recognize ascended masters as our ascended self regardless of gender by seeing them in either masculine or feminine forms instead of as primarily male, for example we can envision Buddha or Christ energy in female form too.

Nine Things That Make No Further Sense In an Awakening World

Humans are gaining consciousness after what seems to be millennia of deep sleep. Things that trigger our awakening are precisely those things that we did in the past that do not seem to make any sense if we actually use our inner wisdom:

1. Killing and mistreating innocent animals for food: When we turn vegan or encourage others to consider how animals die or suffer for our food when we can receive much better health through plant based diet because fruits and vegetables do not kill the plant, we get many arguments to handle. Just because our lesser evolved ancestors or other animals have been okay with consuming animals should we keep doing so without feeling any compassion? Are we still unconscious or are we supposed to be more evolved? We might feel that animal abuse and killing for food or entertainment be banned in an awakened universe, yet do we have the courage to say it? After-all killing, rape or abuse of other humans has also been acceptable in the past.peta

2. Using plastic: We argue that plastic can be recycled and consume tons of it everyday adding to the weight of non-biodegradable garbage on earth, but will plastic cease to be polluting or toxic just because it is being recycled. While governments are afraid to impose or implement bans on plastic in most countries, can we not consciously reduce and discover alternatives to this monster we have created simply for convenience?

Plastic-Ban-Lead-567x356

3. Toxic and Chemical Products: Our needs for glamour and convenience need not outweigh that of true inner beauty and health. We need to ask why we all are we so keen on being outwardly attractive and looking or smelling good, why we keep socializing over drinks or smokes or why we continue eating more and more packaged foods that we do not research the ingredients and go natural instead? Whether it is harmful foods, addictive cigarettes, drugs or alcohol, or over-marketed skin-care and chemical make-up we can choose to say no and be conscious instead. Toxins-in-the-name-of-BEAUTY.png

4. Technological addiction: Whether children or adults we stay 24×7 on smartphones, television or other gadgets, with both eyes looking outside at some kind of entertainment instead of meditation. Staring outside instead of looking inwards is exactly how we lost our third-eye powers, and if we keep doing so we might lose the last of our remaining connections with higher consciousness?wifi

5. Ignorant beliefs and practices: We know how many of our outdated ideas are self-created outpourings of ignorant beliefs. While imagining that some being or beings outside us are giving us the rules we so loyally follow, we have mistreated women, sacrificed animals, encouraged racism, fought for land and power, spread fear and psychosis, destroyed nature and discouraged inner search for truth in the name of religion or belief.

6. Celebrity Worship:  With all that focus on glamour, fame and material power, where do real role models of inner enlightenment disappear? We see idol-worship of a new kind with mass-market music, movies, advertisements and sports dominating the scene while real talent and actual creative genius seems suppressed and unacknowledged. Spiritual idols too seem to be those famous figures of history, popularity or myth that develop into our gods and masters while we lose connection to the higher self within us.

7. Constant Seeking of Outer Pleasure: Special offers and a bombardment of marketing entice our senses all the time preventing us from making sensible choices. Screen romances and popular music has been deeply programming us to constantly look for sexual partners and indulgences all around us. We find little time to seek our own inner self as we lose who we are in the matrix of illusions and desires? If we were to detach from this constant seeking and find a peace and contentment from within, we would not be dancing in ‘maya’ all the time.

8. Making Money as the goal of life: Schools, colleges, offices, shops, we keep learning how to make money, struggle for survival, enhance superficial lifestyle and status and one day enter the ranks of the rich and famous. Are we learning how to exploit the matrix for gaining more and more at the expense of the well-being of others and the planet? Do we consider saying no to many of the unnecessary material objects that we have been accumulating and instead focus on spiritual enlightenment.auto-424119_960_720

9. Medicine that merely suppress symptoms: While we blindly consume harmful meat, dairy, processed foods, chemicals and pesticides instead of organic, fresh and raw vegan diet, and fill ourselves with negative thoughts or emotions, we develop many illnesses, lose resistance to common colds and headaches, and fall prey to life threatening obesity, cancer, diabetes, heart-disease and more that only leads to increased medical bills and taxes. In spiritual awakening, we begin to see that we manifest our own conditions and actually change our inner state through spiritual awareness and healthier choices in mind, body and spirit so that we no longer depend on constant medication.drug-pusher-1907827_960_720

Ten Steps to Awaken From the Matrix

The world has been divided through religion, caste, race, gender norms, sexuality and other complex factors for far too long. However in reality we observe only two types of people, awakening or unconscious. So what exactly is awakening and how can we gain consciousness regardless of the many confusions witnessed around us?

  1. Know You Are Dreaming: We all sleep and dream, yet majority of people do not realize that the world we are living in is also a dreamworld, where our mind is generating our reality.  When our eyes are open we might be actually asleep,  much like a dream in which we also see so many things and people around ourselves. Most people who are asleep in their daily ‘waking life’ find it extremely hard to believe that their life is also a dream. They think that all things that they can see, touch, feel, smell, taste or hear in their daily life are far more real than what the very same things they see in their dreams. This is our greatest mistake. awake-or-asleep
  2. Note and Pay Attention to Your Dreams: Begin your awakening by truly paying attention to what is happening when you go to bed at night. Note down your dreams so that you make a habit of paying attention to them and remembering them. After a daily practice of keeping a dream journal, you will begin to see your dreams much more clearly and yourself notice how ‘real’ or lucid your dreams can actually be. Slowly you will begin to note how your thoughts including subconscious mind can generate your dreams, and you will begin to be awake in your dreams so that you can move about, fly, astral travel or do whatever you like or even change it at your will. It is within these dreams, which you may have ignored so far, that you will learn more about your subconscious mind and how it can project various realities.redblue
  3. Meditate: We do not ‘wake up’ just because we die. We may just go from dream to dream, wandering in illusions. Awakening is about gaining consciousness and meditation is the key. Not only when you sleep at night, but also when you are going about your life throughout the day, you can find some time to sit quietly and close your eyes. By focusing on your inner world, you can literally ‘hear’ your unconscious self-talk or see what is going on in your mind. What you can observe you can also control. By focusing on your third eye through your breath in meditation, and observing inner silence, you can gain power over your mind. Self-defeating or harmful thoughts can be overcome and replaced by positive affirmations that can be quite magical. You can even learn to astral travel and to generate dreams at your will with enough practice and slowly you start seeing how you can influence your everyday reality too. Once you get startling proof that you mind is literally projecting reality into your life, you will have no shred of doubt left. dreamworld
  4. Stay Non-Attached to Senses: We all get a lot of stimuli or information flowing into our mind through our senses. If you have been alert in your dreams and gained lucidity to some extent you would notice that in our dreaming we can be affected by all our senses. Just like we get entangled and involved with all our senses in our dreams, we also remain entangled and involved in our daily life in a constant pursuit of flavor, enjoyment, entertainment and pleasure. Dazed and enticed by our senses we buy into the illusion all around us everyday and imagine that we are in a very ‘real’ world. In contrast when we gain power over our senses, we stop chasing sensory pleasures all the time and become more meditative instead. For instance saying no to drugs, quitting smoking, reducing dependence on sex and alcohol, or going vegan can be the first steps in gaining self-control and consciousness for most people who have been addicted to their senses. The rest remain unconscious and a slave to their senses or ‘maya’.Cypher Matrix Quote
  5. Question Reality: The ‘law of attraction’ says that we manifest things or people into our life based on our energy vibrations such as thoughts or emotional state. Science too confirms that we are living in an illusory ‘simulation’ and that matter is in-fact made up of energy. Yet, the moment we learn the ‘law of attraction’ we use the ‘secret’ to make more money, have more pleasurable relationships, or merely enjoy life, without realizing that it is merely an illusion. Or, if we are skeptical and more scientific instead we keep ‘peeling the layers’ of the reality onion seeking more and and more sub-atomic particles within particles of ‘matter’ which is actually energetic in nature. What we really need to do is look within ourselves too and not just keep researching the outer world so that we can see where this simulation is coming from. We need more scientific spirituality or spiritual science where we research into our mind and reality connection.real
  6. Stay Away From Dogma: While we all respect religions and seek peace, we also need to not subscribe to dogmatic faith that requires some kind of ‘belief system’ to be imposed from the outside. We need to be aware that regardless of faith, or independent of which deity you pray to or whether you go to Church, Temples, Mosques, or any other religious place, prayers can be at times answered in amazing ways. Similarly, if you are an atheist you can still manifest something through simply believing in yourself or by holding a strong intention. Therefore any religious group or institution that tells you that only their belief or deity is true or powerful is clearly mistaken. Even worse would be those who frighten people with images of a ‘devil’ or ‘evil spirits’ influencing your life if you do not bow to ‘their God’. Such dogmas keep people bound to superstitious beliefs that prevent a real search for truth by looking inwards and witnessing how you are creating your life.matrix
  7. Forgive and Detach From Your Story:  Imagine a virtual reality show or movie where you could go into the game and experience it with all your sensations along with your emotions, as if you are the character. This is exactly what is happening in our life too which is very much like a dream unfolding through our senses and generated by mental perceptions. However bound with all our emotions and dramas we keep prolonging our illusion and remain asleep. Just like while dreaming we need to wake up by detaching from the story in our dream, similarly we can also detach from our story in our ‘waking life’. Everything that has happened all the way up till the present moment has been nothing more than a dream. Regardless of all the pain, suffering, deaths, heartbreaks and in-spite of all the achievements, success, friendships, relationships, we all have been in-fact only dreaming. Forgiving every person including and especially yourself is the most important part of awakening. free-your-mind-matrix
  8. Know Your Power Over the System: Something in us, consciously or unconsciously has been generating our ‘story’, and if we really trace our soul back all the way to the source, we will find how we have generated the very same systems of political, economical and religious control that we have been fighting against. We will see how we have been very unconscious since our birth or past lives, and have contributed unconsciously to the development of all the systems we have place all around us in this world and have also generated all our victim states when being abused or suffering through any timeline within the matrix. The important thing is to stop hurting and reacting to these unconscious energies from our past or from around us but to gain power over them and be the change we wish to see in our world.wont-dodge-bullets
  9. Know that We Are One: The biggest illusion in this multi-dimensional reality show is the appearance that we are all different people with different souls. In truth we all have the same one soul deep within ourselves which we can also call ‘God’, Ultimate Consciousness’, ‘Supreme Being’, ‘Creator’ or ‘Source’. We can all gain self-realization by reaching this level of Truth or Self within us which is the same essence carried within all conscious beings. Anyone who gains consciousness awakens to this truth from within instead of being fooled by the outward display of all the characters and personalities around. When we are trying to heal others, or awaken others, what we really need to do is connect with the higher self where we all are One instead of trying too hard to change others all around us who are seem to be part of the unconscious matrix and not really open to change all the time.matrix-quote-people-are-not-ready-to-be-unplugged
  10. Self Mastery: Waking up from a dream can take a longer or shorter time based on how soon we gain awareness that we are in a dream, become more lucid and ultimately detach from the story with all our senses and emotions. Similarly awakening in this life is accelerated by realizing that we are in illusion, seeing for ourselves how we are generating the illusion across every level of our own ‘matrix’ or mind, and detaching from our story or ‘maya’ through non-attachment. When we are no longer emotionally disturbed by the past, worried about the future, or entangled sensually in the present, we have gained some sort of mastery over our own self, and can certainly prepare for awakening and ascension. spoon1.gif

7 Laws Around the World That Need Changing

As reported today in the news, homosexuality was decriminalized in India today. However there are still many archaic laws around the world that require changing for making our planet a better place for us with regards to human rights and that of animals.

  1. Marital Rape: In many countries such as India, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Malaysia, marital rape is still allowed. India has a been showing a poor record in recognizing female sexual consent and most people believe that sex is obligatory once a woman is married to a man regardless of her refusal. According to this report for example, Indian government has last year refused to uphold the rights of consent for married women stating that laws against marital rape ‘could destabilize the institution of marriage.’ In contrast  UK criminalized non-consensual sex within marriage since early 1990s and it may send the husband to jail for many years. According to this BBC report marital rape, date rape or acquaintance rape in UK is to be taken as seriously as stranger rape. It is time for an international movement to make non-consensual sex illegal regardless of marriage or relationship.indian-wedding-2944648_960_720
  2. Child Marriage: Some countries such as Saudi Arabia, South Sudan, Somalia allow little children to be married off because of absolutely no legal age specification for marriage. In around 117 countries marriage of children, especially girls is allowed according to this report . In many other countries, although marriage of children is not legal, the implementation of laws regarding this is poor resulting in many girl children being married to men against their will at an early age. Not only does this result in marital rape, the lack of marital rape laws and absence of women’s rights makes it even more difficult for any justice to be possible in some countries. Human rights groups need to strengthen their case for laws to protect girl child and children from marriage and rape.muslim-972544_960_720
  3. Women’s Rights: While Saudi Arabia recently allowed women to drive, when it comes to taking any financial decision, career, travel or marriage, women need permission from a male relative. According to this controversial ‘male guardianship’ system, husbands, fathers, brothers and even sons can make decisions on ‘behalf’ of the woman. Similarly women in many places are forced to wear burkas and hijabs that cover their body, hair and face. There is an urgent call to end the male guardianship system in Saudi Arabia. mourning-2833151_960_720
  4. Animal Rights: From being used as food in most countries to being abused in farms for the sake of milk and poultry animal rights have been brutally violated all over the world for several centuries. Some countries have a few laws regarding pets and media usage of animals while some do not even have such laws. United Kingdom was one of the first countries to introduce laws for animal welfare according to this BBC report. Even in such countries slaughtering animals for religious reasons such as halal and kosher has been permitted which remains a major violation of animal rights as it requires animals to be consciously killed by knife instead of stunning. In either case the entire idea of allowing animals to be killed for meat does against the concept of compassion and cruelty free living. Regardless of religious and mass mentality laws against killing of animals for food, fun or cruelty need to be enacted if we are to have a sensible earth. Basic measures such as preventing caging of animals in zoos, use in circuses and other industries still need to be taken in most countries.LambEscaping_Captioned
  5. Tree Cutting: Not only do trees help our environment, they also have a long life that needs to be respected. However many countries have insufficient laws governing tree felling. In many developing nations, we see cities and towns such as Mumbai, Shanghai, Dubai and Istanbul as shown in this report, there are hardly any trees. In many of these cities, massive construction has depleted the space of almost all tree cover, with absolutely no provisions to preserve green and open spaces or plant more trees. Laws to plant more trees and to protect a large percentage of the city space with tree cover are desperately needed. An example of a petition to prevent losing the last green space left in Mumbai at Aarey colony is found here.trees-1460363_960_720
  6. Indigenous Rights: British colonists have in the past taken possession over large pieces of lands and entire continents such as Australia and North America by their force and a display of racial and religious superiority over indigenous populations all over the world. Land and property therefore have largely been traded and owned by western laws with little or no regard for the rights of the original inhabitants of the place. Treasures and wealth of countries that were colonized and ruled over in the past has already made western empires richer while people in the nations that were ruled by the west, including African nations and India have suffered several years of poverty and economic neglect in-spite of being financially rich in the historical past. Laws to return indigenous land and wealth to its original owners is necessary and a matter of struggle in many cases.indigenous_rights
  7. Arms and Ammunition: We all agree that we need more peace in the world. Yet the arms and ammunition industry is worth billions and the profiteers behind every side of war. Not only do we have nuclear weapons still in place in powerful as well as developing nations, we also have guns sold legally in the USA making it life unsafe for the common public including school children.GunControlProtest

7 Reasons People are Choosing Adoption over Reproduction

We all talk about the world and its myriad problems caused due to the human condition. Could adoption be one of the major solutions for these issues? Here are some reasons people have for adopting children and pets rather than bringing more new children into the world.

  1. It Feels Better: To have an opportunity to uplift and help another person, child or animal feels phenomenally better than to stay busy satisfying our own ever- increasing desires. When we rescue that stray animal who was dying on the streets with no food, water or shelter, or adopt and educate a beautiful child who has no family of her own, we know that we are living from our heart and doing what feels right. poor-2061337_960_720
  2. Conscious Alternative to Fertility Clinics: Thanks to the overrated image of pregnant women as mothers, we have forgotten that motherhood or fatherhood is more about raising children than producing them. We all see IVF centers mushrooming everywhere and pharmaceutical or medical organizations make plenty of money promoting fertility clinics to help childless people have children of their own. Why would people prefer to spend that much time and energy trying to conceive when they could simply adopt and have a beautiful little person to share space and love with? doll-87407_960_720
  3. Spiritual Awakening: The reasons such as genetic urge to carry on your own bloodline or the need to keep up with highly valued social customs of reproduction are all illusory and insignificant for those who are awakened spiritually. We do not live our life as per outer rituals and systems any longer because we have discovered a far more valuable inner truth through spiritual realization, meditation and inner change. The mindless race of consumerism and material life is less important and having a better inner quality of life and love is more.travel-3099553_960_720
  4. Solution for Homelessness: We all have seen the familiar homeless person in all our major cities, subways and streets. The poor person who is unable to afford the mortgage, loan or rent for property might have had a difficult childhood or no family to support him. When we provide a home to those children who face poverty in the world by opening our hearts to them, we reduce the chances they will end up struggling on the streets.homeless-man-833017_960_720
  5. Population Control: We all know that the way our population seems to be growing, it could be impossible to look after all of us in the near future with just this one planet to live on. We can spend trillions of funds trying to discover and colonize new habitable planets, or we could be wiser and promote adoption that not only prevents over-population but also helps us look after the existing children of the world who actually need helping.adoption-1057639_960_720.jpg
  6. Animals Matter Too: Having our own biological children might seem to satisfy the reproductive urges of some people, but they probably have not tried having pets yet. Animal life is not less precious than human life, and pets are as loving and innocent as human children are. Having a pet can cure our reproductive cravings to a large extent by giving our maternal and paternal instincts an outlet in the form of unconditional love beyond our own species.girl-62328_960_720
  7. Solution to Poverty and Child Labor: In financially weaker nations it is common to see little children walking around on dangerously busy streets, begging for alms, or performing manual labor at construction sites and highways. If parents were encouraged not to have their own children unless they are capable of looking after their material needs and provide them a safe childhood, we could have a more conscious world. Until then we could at least encourage adoption of those children living in deplorable situations facing child abuse that is unthinkable to most of us.poor-3277840_960_720

Five Wonderful Techniques of Chakra and Aura Healing

We all have not just this one physical body that we see in the mirror, but also inner bodies of light that form the major blueprints of our existence in physical as well as astral worlds and higher dimensions.

Chakras are often visualized as wheels of light and are important energy centers through which our spiritual, mental and emotional energy flows. Our chakras not only connect with the physical body, our endocrine glands and various biological systems but also compose the overall frequency and brightness of our aura or light body.

Our aura indicates our health and energy state that determines all aspects of our life including our career, relationships, prosperity, emotional state, intellect, higher powers and spiritual awareness. The aura can have various layers much like a luminous cocoon or shell invisibly surrounding the individual and indicating his or her electromagnetic field. A brighter and radiant aura is a sign of emotional, mental and physical wellness and will reflect in the way some people can effortlessly attract positive situations or transform energy around them into something positive through their own overall energetic state.

There are 7 main chakras and many more minor chakras associated with our body its various glands, biological systems, aura energy and mental or emotional state. Keeping all major chakras in balance lets our energy flow smoothly for healing of body, mind and overall quality of life and supports the awakening of kundalini (inner power) and higher consciousness for spiritual ascension.

Here are some wonderful ways we can keep our Chakras and Aura healthy and bright:

  1. Meditation and Channeling of Energy: When we meditate, detaching from the surrounding energies and drawing our attention instead to our inner self, we give energy to our chakras automatically. Through meditation our focus returns to who we are, our inner state of peace, light and love that is at the core of each being. This inner peace can help us channel or bring energy wherever it is needed in our body, mind and life including our chakras or spiritual energy centers. Simply close your eyes, sit in a relaxed yet alert posture with spine straight and legs folded either on a chair or floor, and allow attention to return to your center by looking within yourself, at the silent space within you. Observe your inner peace and if any thoughts or emotional turbulence is observed, allow it to settle on its own with your focus on your inner silence through regular and committed practice of at least 30 minutes a day. Through meditation spiritual energy of peace and universal love is automatically channeled, while training in Reiki and pranic energy is also helpful in accelerating this connection with the higher self for inner healing.
  2. Breathing Exercises and Yoga: In a meditative state when we are channeling higher or positive energy of universal peace and love, we also can breathe through our various energy centers or chakras to direct energy in and out of our spiritual body. Breathing out of the regions of the body associated with each chakra helps in cleansing the chakras and clearing off negative or blocked energy, while breathing into the region of the body associated with each chakra helps in energizing and strengthening the chakras with positive life force energy. There are also many yogic postures or asanas that can bring attention to various physical regions of the body and the glands associated with each chakra, thereby helping to heal the chakras.
  3. Colour and Crystal Therapy: Each chakra can be visualized in various colors of the rainbow. Bathing ourselves in this rainbow light from head to toe during creative visualization can be helpful in healing of chakras. The crown chakra is associated with violet, third-eye with indigo, throat with blue, heart with green, solar plexus with yellow, sacral with orange and root with red. Visualizing each chakra as a ball of light and brightening it with the power of visualization so that it feels radiant and healthy is a good way of energizing each chakra in a meditative state. Wearing the colors associated with the chakra that you wish to work with, or focusing on colorful mandalas or yantras designed specifically for the chakras one at a time during meditation can also help in healing each chakra with light. Crystals of the various chakra colours are natural gifts of mother earth that can help us heal our chakras with their peaceful and positive energy during meditation, and can at times also be placed on the regions of the body associated with each chakra or aligned along the spine for enhancing the energy flow between chakras during meditation.
  4. Music, Mantras and Affirmations: Sound healing can help bathe the aura and energize the chakras with positive energy. Solfeggio frequencies for instance are especially connected with our chakras for their healing when we hear them in a meditative state. Mantras for chakras include OM for crown, SHAM for third-eye, HAM for throat, YAM for heart, RAM for solar plexus, VAM for sacral and LAM for root chakra and intoning them helps in cleansing and energizing each chakra during meditation. Similarly positive affirmations for each chakra helps us in absorbing positive beliefs corresponding to each of our chakras. For e.g.
    • I am perfectly safe and secure from deep within. I trust myself. (Root)
    • I feel amazing and vibrant with joy and delight. I celebrate myself. (Sacral)
    • I am a powerful being of light. I manifest my highest good. (Solar)
    • I overflow with abundance and compassion. I am love. (Heart)
    • I express my true feelings with honesty and kindness. I know myself. (Throat)
    • I look within and discover inner truth. I am intuitive. (Third-eye)
    • I am one with the source of universal energy. I am truth. (Crown)
