Ways To Purify Negative Karma Image

Does it often feel like something goes wrong in your life? Do you face lots of obstacles on your path to your dream life? Do you have health problems? Is there a lack of inspiration in your life? Do you feel like troubles and misfortune follow you everywhere you go? Well then perhaps it’s time for you to find out what karma is and how to purify it.

In this article, I’ll share with you the most effective life-changing ways to purify negative karma and build the life you dreamed of!

What Is Karma?

What Is Karma Image

Karma represents the cycle of cause and effect. According to the theory of Karma, everything that happens to us happens because we caused it with our own actions. Good intent and good deeds contribute to good karma, happier future, and happier rebirths, while bad intent and bad deeds contribute to negative karma, an unhappy future, and unhappy rebirths.

Our actions can be both conscious and unconscious. Any of our actions in one way or another have an impact on the environment. Any outward manifestations encourage the space to react accordingly to our actions.

Good And Bad Karma

In cases where our actions create a positive effect on our environment and do not harm what surrounds us, the universe, as a rule, does not send us karmic lessons wrapped in the negative circumstances but gives us positive experiences instead.

If our actions cause destruction or irritate the environment, the Universe gives us its negative response. However, it may not happen immediately, but with some delay. Usually, the speed of the Universes’s response depends on the accumulation of a critical mass of negativity. It is the excess of the critical mass of negativity that triggers the mechanism of karma.

However, even if as a result of your negative actions, no reaction followed, it does not mean that you will not be not responsible for what you did. The fatal consequences are sure to overtake you in the future. Unfortunately, these negative “savings” can even spread to your children and grandchildren.

Even if you create negative karma unconsciously and do not realize that you’re doing something wrong in your life this does not relieve you of responsibility for what you have done. Karma is ruthless and fair, and all are equal before its Law.

Ancient Indian sages knew this concept. All actions they divided into “positive” or “negative”. Positive actions create good karma and negative – bad karma.

“Positive” action is performed according to the order of the Dharma – a set of laws, following which a person is insured from erroneous negative actions that weigh down his karma. In fact, the “positive” action is always “unconditional”.

“Negative” actions are usually manifested as the result of selfish aspirations.

So as you can see, “positive” or “negative” karma arises as a result of a particular action and becomes its consequence.

Speaking of karma in simple terms, we can say: do good and it will come back to you. If you do evil it will come back to you sooner or later.

How to Diagnose Karma?

Writing notes image

Take a piece of paper and draw 3 columns.

In the first column, write down all spheres of life: health, love, money, property, education, career, success and recognition, social status.

In the second column, write down the points of your satisfaction with this sphere of life from 1 to 10.

And in the third column, describe in detail your dissatisfaction, problems or the excitement of each sphere.

Once you have made a list by filling in all the columns, analyze it. The spheres that have fewer points are the ones that bring you the most karmic lessons. The spheres that have the most points are the ones that show your good karma.

Problem Flow

If you’re facing problems, difficulties, troubles, misfortunes in some area of life, then you’re experiencing karmic lessons that you need to learn.

Why does it happen? This happens because in your past or even in your past life you intentionally or unintentionally committed bad acts – for example, took someone else’s money, destroyed a family by seducing someone else’s husband or wife, slandered a person, etc. Now, according to the Universal Laws, this action has returned to you and you are reaping the fruits of your bad karma.

It’s very easy to see the fruits of good Karma – rich people have done something very significant and deserve this wealth. If a child was born in a rich family it means this soul came into this life with good money karma from the past life. Perhaps this soul was doing lots of charity in its past life and now it’s experiencing the results of these good actions. Of course, if these people are now dishonest in doing business, they can later experience poverty (maybe in the next life). But now they are deservedly doing well. The same goes for health, love, success, etc.

What Is Karma Purification?

Karma Yoga Image

The accumulated karma for all incarnations of the Soul includes all crimes, mistakes, sins, dishonest actions, negative thoughts, debts, not fulfilled obligations, every broken promise, negative action, etc. In General, absolutely all violations of the Universal Laws leave a mark on the soul and fate of a person, in the form of certain prohibitions, wounds, diseases, suffering, insanity, failures, etc.

People will continue to suffer, to feel pain, to be hurt, to be sick, to be poor and unhappy until they learn karmic lessons.

But if you don’t want to spend your entire life paying for your past mistakes there is a way to stop this suffering – to purify your karma NOW.

Karma purification means that a person on the way of his/her spiritual development, step by step, hones all the best facets of his/her soul, reveals divine qualities and power, gets rid of vices, weaknesses and bad habits, realizing and eliminating all the negative actions that he/she did in the past (in all past lives + this life).

6 Ways to Purify Your Karma

#1: Good Deeds

To bring good into the world is the best way to purify your karma. The more good deeds you do, the more positive changes you will attract into your life.

How to determine what positive actions need to be done?

To do this, pay attention to the reason for your biggest suffering in life.

Do you suffer from any disease? Or you easily get sick and your immune system is weak? So, you need to take the time to help sick people. For example, you can donate money for the hospitals, come to the nursing homes and care for the elderly helpless people, help homeless animals, become a healer and help people to be healthier.

Do you experience a money problem? Do some charity work! For example, buy toys for orphans. Feed the homeless dogs. Important note: do not give money to adults who are able to provide for themselves – this kind of actions only worsen karma since you’re taking their bad karma on yourself! You can help these people differently – help them to find a job, for example. Or ask them to do some work for you for money or food exchange.

By using an analogy, choose other good deeds. And remember – you need to do them from the heart, do not wait for gratitude or any other rewards.

#2: Stop Behaving In a Destructive Way

It also happens that a person does good deeds in one area, but at the same time harms people, animals, and the environment. Therefore, to purify your karma you should stop doing any harm to others!

Some Helpful Tips On How To Stop Doing Harm:

  • Stop polluting the environment! Have you ever thrown garbage past the trash can? Or maybe left a mess after camping with friends? Do you practice an environmentally friendly lifestyle? Treat nature with love and gratitude! This is a big impact on your good karma!
  • Put in order the relations with your family. Do you treat your parents with respect and honor? Do you fight with your partner or kids? In order to purify your karma, you have to stop quarrels, conflicts, grudges, mutual reproaches, and claims. And it’s very important to treat each member of your family with love, respect, and compassion.
  • Do you use profanity in your speech? Even if you’re doing it in a joking way it worsens your karma. Replace profanity words with positive and loving words.
  • Don’t participate in sponsoring cruelty and harm! Stop buying products that were tested on animals. Rethink your diet – is your satisfaction worth animals’ lives that were taken for your dinner? Choosing a vegan lifestyle you invest in your good karma!

#3 Mantras

The Universe always hears us and fulfills our requests. Spiritual practices make it possible to establish maximum contact with the Universe and increase the chances of being heard. Therefore, it is very beneficial from the Karmic perspective to refer to God, to the Universe and Higher Powers through prayers, mantras, and meditation.

The power of words and sounds is really great!

Money Mantras Image

Mantra is the energy concentrated in the vibration of sound. It is the carrier of the special spiritual power and the code, which is encrypted with the Supreme knowledge. All the sounds of the mantras have great potency and power.

By chanting mantras a person finds inner peace, harmony, fearlessness, satisfaction, and health.

Many describe mantra as a prayer, a formula of worship, the mystic syllables and so on, but such definitions show only the superficiality of knowledge of those who say that.

Ordinary prayer can be just a sound, but the mantra is a powerful driving force and therefore it contributes not just to the realization of all wishes but also the elimination of duality of perception and liberation.

A mantra is a syllable, word, or verse that has the ability to influence a person’s consciousness and helps in spiritual development if they are chanted properly.

#4 Purification Through Austerity

If your life situation is critical, if it threatens your life and you feel like you can’t take all these life challenges anymore then you should consider the most intense, toughest but also a most effective way to purify your karma which is austerity.

Different ways to practice austerity:

  1. The austerity of food: give up meat, eggs, and dairy. If you’re already a vegan then give up bread, sugar, and salt. Or you can give up any food you like the most. You can do this for a year or for life.
  2. Celibacy – which is sexual abstinence. It is especially effective for those who have problems in controlling sexual desires, does not have a permanent partner or have multiple partners.
  3. The austerity of speech: be truthful, don’t spread rumors, don’t gossip, don’t criticize, refuse to use abusive, or profanity words in your speech.
  4. The austerity of mind: take your thoughts under control! Choose your thoughts wisely: focus on those ones that are positive, inspirational and kind and get rid of negative ones! Don’t criticize others even in your mind, don’t judge anybody and don’t think badly of people.
no profanity image

All of the above is better to do at the same time. The ascetic way of life for even a short period of time gives tremendous enlightenment, karmic purification, harmonization of the inner state.

#5 Reading the Sutra Texts

In Buddhism, sutras are canonical scriptures, many of which are regarded as records of the oral teachings of Gautama Buddha. When we are reading the Sutras we actually affect our karma in a very positive way. For this purpose, you can read, for example, the Diamond Cutter or the Perfection of Wisdom.

#6 Meditating On Emptiness

Meditation on emptiness is considered one of the most difficult. The difficulty lies in the fact that ideally, this meditation involves complete thoughtlessness.

Conclusion

It takes a lot of time, patience and effort in order to achieve a complete restructuring of negative destructive thoughts into positive constructive ones. To banish anger, pettiness, irritability, and resentment from the heart and transform them to love, generosity and compassion is not easy, but possible.

At the same time, don’t forget to do good unselfish deeds. But when doing these deeds don’t forget that you should be doing them not just for the sake of improving your own karma, but for the sake of increasing the amount of good in the world. Only with this attitude is it possible to achieve the desired effect!

How To Raise Your Consciousness To Sattva Guna?

Published

on

Sattva Guna Image

Sattva Guna, the quality of purity and peacefulness, is one of the three gunas in yogic philosophy. Tamas (darkness and lethargy) and Rajas (energy and passion) are the other two gunas.

Sattva guna gives the opportunity to experience internal happiness and provides a platform and the necessary qualities for starting a real spiritual path. As long as the consciousness is filled with many negative qualities of Rajas and Tamas, the spiritual path is almost impossible. The beginning of the spiritual path is always accompanied by the state of Sattva guna.

In this article, I will share with you how to raise your consciousness to Sattva guna. But first, let me explain what gunas are.

What Is Guna?

Guna can be translated as “quality, peculiarity, attribute, property” and implies that, like strands of a rope, the gunas are woven together to form the objective universe. Awareness of the gunas tells us whether we are genuinely moving forward in life (sattva), running in place (rajas), or losing our way (tamas).

There are three gunas that have always been and continue to be present in all things and beings in the world. These three gunas are called:

  1. sattva (goodness, constructive, harmonious);
  2. rajas (passion, active, confused);
  3. tamas (darkness, destructive, chaotic).
Three gunas image

All of these three gunas are present in everyone and everything, it is the proportion that is different. The interplay of these gunas defines the character of someone or something, of nature and determines the progress of life.

“Action that is virtuous, thought through, free from attachment, and without craving for results is considered Sattvic;
Action that is driven purely by craving for pleasure, selfishness, and much effort is Rajasic;
Action that is undertaken because of delusion, disregarding consequences, without considering loss or injury to others or self, is called Tamasic.”

— Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 18, verses 23–25

The three gunas are constantly interacting with one another. While the gunas themselves are permanent in essence, their interactions are transitory.

Samkhya philosophers say that life exists for the purpose of acquiring experience and knowing the Self. The gunas are meant to facilitate this spiritual endeavor. They reveal, conceal, and stir us up – all for the purpose of bringing us closer to Purusha.

Tamas Guna

Tamas Guna Image

The cause of Tamas is the original ignorance – the identification of oneself with the matter. From this identification, desire and fear come. The desire for pleasure and fear of suffering. Thus, the living being is immersed in material existence.

Avidya means ignorance, which does not allow you to perceive knowledge or feel it. This is like not knowing the language, which does not allow you to understand speech. Avidya is fundamental blindness about reality.

Under the influence of Avidya, one can acquire knowledge, but cannot fully understand it. In order to fully understand the knowledge, one should reach Sattva guna consciousness.

The causes of Tamas:

  • pleasures and attachment to them;
  • incorrect lifestyle: nutrition, sleep, activity;
  • misconceptions;
  • immersion in the matter;
  • ignorance;
  • lack of external and internal cleanliness;
  • lies;
  • violence;
  • greed;
  • prohibited activities;
  • gambling;
  • alcohol, drugs, and other intoxicating substances.

Rajas Guna

Rajas guna image

The cause of Rajas is lust. Lust is an all-consuming desire for pleasure.

Rajas manifests itself in the form of excessive activity, which is caused by strong desires. Lust denotes strong desires that occupy a person, turning him away from God and his spiritual path.

The causes of Rajas:

  • attachment to the objects of pleasure;
  • active and unrestrained mind;
  • uncontrolled feelings and emotions;
  • pleasures;
  • attachments to material goals.

Sattva Guna

Sattva guna manifests itself as purity, true knowledge, and harmony. It is free of fear, violence, malice, and wrath. Sattva is a quality of goodness, joy, forgiveness, nobility, contentment, and satisfaction.

The causes of Sattva guna:

  • gaining knowledge;
  • getting rid of undesirable qualities;
  • proper lifestyle: nutrition, sleep, activity;
  • striving for spiritual self-awareness and knowledge;
  • non-attachment to the results of any activity;
  • following the Yama and Niyama principles;
  • limited entertainment;
  • non-attachment.

In order to reach Samadhi (Liberation) the Sattva consciousness should be attained. It is possible to increase Sattva by reducing Rajas and Tamas. Here are some recommendations on how to do it.

9 Ways To Increase Sattva Guna

#1: Go to bed early, and get up early

Sattva guna sleep image

Avoid staying up late, especially in the hours leading to midnight, because that time period is tamasic. In other words, when you’re staying up late you are increasing Tamas guna.

Morning hours are saturated with Sattva. If you are awake during those hours, you naturally absorb vital energy. Brahma Muhurta time, which begins 90 minutes before sunrise and ends at sunrise, is especially beneficial for spiritual practices and raising your vibrations.

#2: Eat sattvic foods

According to the Bhagavad Gita, only a vegetarian food is sattvic.

Food that is wholesome, pure, and obtained without difficulty is sattvic food, food that gives immediate pleasure to the senses is rajasic food, and food that is unclean and causes distress is tamasic food.

– Srimad Bhagavatam 11.25.28

Even though onion and garlic are considered vegetarian foods, they are known to increase Tamas guna. Therefore, it is recommended to avoid them along with other non-vegetarian food.

#3: Meditate daily

Regular meditations are important for increasing Sattva guna. Meditation helps to clear the consciousness by detaching it from matter. When we meditate we are able to connect to higher levels of consciousness which leads us to Sattvic happiness.

#4: Regulate your sex life

It is important to understand that the nature of sex is rajasic. Therefore it is important to take your sex life under control, and if not avoid it, then at least regulate it.

#5: Keep your house and your body clean

Clean your house on a regular basis. Make sure it is always clean and has a harmonious atmosphere. Keep your body clean, don’t skip the showers. Wear clean clothes.

It is also important to detox your body regularly by using Ayurvedic detox tips.

#6: Study the Sacred texts regularly

Sattva guna reading Image

You don’t have to be a devotee of Hindu philosophy in order to study Sacred texts such as Bhagavad Gita. You can choose any Sacred text for your studies. It can be the Bible, the Upanishads, The Dao De Jing, etc.

#7: Spend time alone with nature

Sages of bygone ages turned to the forests and the mountains for spiritual realization. Such a practice can have a big positive effect on the mind and deepen our spiritual connection with the world around us. Therefore, it is essential to find time to spend it alone with Mother Nature. Allow Her to nourish you in solitude.

#8: Consciously slow down

A fast-paced life combined with excess use of gadgets increases Rajas guna. A stressful lifestyle leads to an overactive mind, anxiety, and health problems. Internet addiction makes the mind restless.

To increase Sattva guna, make sure you consciously slow down your life and spend quality time away from technology. It will give your mind the necessary rest and you will see that you become less stressed and more relaxed and opened to new knowledge.

#9: Practice Bhakti Yoga

According to Samrat Kumar, Bhakti yoga is an Indian tradition of “divine love mysticism”, a spiritual path “synonymous for an intimate understanding of oneness and harmony of the eternal individual with the Divine (the universal Being) and all creatures, a constant delight”.

Bhakti Yoga practice elevates you to Sattva guna first and then makes you transcend to the level of Brahman. This is the quickest way to elevate your consciousness.

The Bottom Line

To raise your consciousness to the level of Sattva guna means to stop perceiving the world as a source of pleasure and turn your eyes inward, understand yourself, and gain knowledge of your true nature.

Both the search for self and the attainment of Sattva guna is a difficult and lengthy process that must be constantly supported by effort, conscious self-discipline, and benevolent actions.

Who Are The Archangels? Their Divine Mission And How To Connect

Published

on

who are the archangels image

Who are the Archangels? What is their divine mission? Are there hierarchies? How to connect and communicate with Archangels? This article will explore all of these questions.

Who Are The Archangels?

Archangels are heavenly creatures that reveal the facets of the divine in our earthly life, helping spiritual awakening and transformation.

In translation from ancient Greek, “arch” means the main, chief; “angel” or “Angelos ” is translated as a messenger. In other words, an Archangel is the one who is the main messenger of God on Earth.

Let’s dive deeper into details of who these archangels are and how to contact them.

Angelic Hierarchies

Several types of angelic hierarchies differ slightly from each other. Ancient theologians mentioned there are 9 to 11 ranks in the hierarchy. This division is based on the sacred knowledge of the New and Old Testaments.

Let me introduce to you the Areopagite angelic hierarchy, with which the Archangels occupy the third sphere.

First sphere (according to old Testament sources)

  1. Seraphim
  2. Cherubim
  3. Thrones (included into new Testament sources)

Second sphere (according to New Testament sources)

  1. Dominions
  2. Forces
  3. Powers

Third sphere (according to the Old Testament and New Testament sources)

  1. Principalities or Rulers
  2. Archangels
  3. Angels

As you can see, in the 9th place in the hierarchy are Angels. In our dual world, they are close to us and always ready to help. But the first ones who are closest to us outside of the dual world are the Archangels. We can say that they are a link between Heaven and Earth. Together, Angels and Archangels represent our body and soul.

Religious View of the Angelic Hierarchy

Who Are The Archangels And What Is Their Mission Image

Interestingly, Angels and Archangels are celestial entities that occur simultaneously in several religions. Even their names are very similar. Let’s look at who the Archangels are from a religious point of view.

Christianity

Christians believe the Archangels are the highest rank of the Angels and call them Taxiarches which means “commander”.

The Eastern Orthodox Tradition mentions “thousands of archangels. However, only seven Archangels are venerated by name:

  • Archangel Michael (in the Hebrew language means “Who is like God?” or “Who is equal to God?”): the Guardian of the Orthodox Faith and a fighter against heresies.
  • Archangel Gabriel (means “God is my strength” or “Might of God”): the herald of the mysteries of God, especially the Incarnation of God and all other mysteries related to it.
  • Archangel Raphael (means “It is God who heals” or “God Heals”): is depicted leading Tobit with his right hand and holding a physician’s alabaster jar in his left hand.
  • Archangel Uriel (means “God is my light”, or “Light of God”): is depicted holding a sword in his right hand, and a flame in his left.
  • Archangel Sealtiel (means “Intercessor of God”): is depicted with his face and eyes lowered, holding his hands on his bosom in prayer.
  • Archangel Jegudiel (means “Glorifier of God”): is depicted bearing a golden wreath in his right hand and a triple-thonged whip in his left hand.
  • Archangel Barachiel (means “Blessed by God”): is depicted holding a white rose in his hand.

These names were revealed in revelations to the monk Amadeus Mendes da Silva (Amadeus of Portugal), who lived in the 15th century.

In addition to Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael, the Coptic Orthodox Church recognizes four more archangels by name:

  • Archangel Suriel: “Prince of God”;
  • Archangel Zedekiel: “Grace of God”;
  • Archangel Sarathiel;
  • Archangel Ananiel: “Rain of God”.

In Roman Catholicism, three Archangels are mentioned by name:

  • Gabriel;
  • Michael;
  • Raphael.

The Protestant Bible mentions names for three archangels:

  • “Michael the archangel”;
  • The angel Gabriel (who is called “the man Gabriel” in Daniel 9:21);
  • “Abaddon”/”Apollyon” (mentioned in Revelation 9:11).

Within Protestantism, the Anglican and Methodist tradition recognizes four angels as archangels:

  • Michael the Archangel;
  • Raphael the Archangel;
  • Gabriel the Archangel;
  • Uriel the Archangel.

Judaism

In Judaism, each Archangel is associated with a particular planet. They are known as Azriel, Materiel, Jerahmiel, Michael, Raphael, Uriel, Gabriel, Samael, and Reuel. The main guardian and protector of the Jews is undoubtedly Archangel Michael. According to legend, he is located in the heavenly Jerusalem, in the Temple where he performs sacrifices.

According to Kabbalah’s teachings, there are many Archangels that are presented as aspects of God on Earth. The main ones correspond to a certain element:

  • Archangel Michael represents the Fire element and assists people with awakening them to pursue their spiritual truth, urging them to burn away their sins and seek holiness that will purify their souls, and sparking their courage to take the risks God wants them to take to become stronger and help make the world a better place.
  • Archangel Gabriel represents the Water element and helps people with understanding God’s messages.
  • Archangel Raphael represents the Air element and helps people with healing body, mind, and spirit.
  • Archangel Uriel represents the Earth element and helps people with knowledge and wisdom.

Each Archangel has 12 Angels under his command.

Islam

Angels In Islam Image

In Islamic religious tradition, the archangels are mentioned in the Quran and Sunnah.

Islam preaches that the highest goal of Archangels is to be messengers between Allah and people. According to this religion’s teachings, archangels were created from a luminous origin by Allah.

The main Archangels according to Islamic tradition are:

  • Gabriel (Jibrail or Jibril in Arabic): responsible for transmitting God’s revelations to all prophets;
  • Michael (Mikail in Arabic): responsible for bringing rain and thunder to Earth.
  • Raphael (Israfil in Arabic): responsible for signaling the coming of Judgment Day.
  • Azrael (Azra’il in Arabic, also called Malak al-Maut, literally “angel of death”): responsible for taking the soul of the dead to heaven or hell.

The prophet Muhammad said that during the performance of prayer, all the Archangels make a plea to Allah for forgiveness and mercy of the person in prayer. And on the sacred night of Laylat al-Qadr, the heavenly forces descend to earth and their presence is felt everywhere.

Mission Of The Archangels On Earth

To answer the question: “Who are the Archangels?” we need to understand what their mission and powers are.

These heavenly forces manage groups of Angels and guide their activities. In addition, they are heavenly teachers and, as divine messengers, share sacred knowledge with people. Often these messages are transmitted through the Higher Self of a person, in the process of meditation, in solitude, during the practice of silence (when the mind becomes calm and does not interfere with hearing messages from the Higher realms).

Archangels occupy huge spaces in the Universe. They are powerful energy, a great force, the key to the unknown. It is difficult to understand and realize the full power of these divine beings since they vibrate at the ninth frequency. They are called Disembodied celestial forces. We, who are in the earthly incarnation, have bodies of the third and fourth densities and can raise our vibrations by spiritual practices to the fifth frequency.

In order to be able to communicate with the Archangels and identify them in the prayers, people invented images and assigned names to some of them.

The possibilities of the Heavenly Patrons are limitless. They never refuse to give their support. They are able to influence the natural forces and prevent natural disasters, help to solve interethnic conflicts and end wars.

According to ancient legends, Archangels could appear to people in human form. Since ancient times, they have transmitted their messages to people through their revelations to the chosen ones. They appeared before the prophet Daniel, Jesus, and the soothsayer Balaam.

It is clear that there are a countless number of Archangels in different traditions. However, let’s focus on the most revered ones that are described in various sources.

The most known Archangels are Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Sealtiel, Jegudiel, Barachiel, Jeremiel, Sachiel, Zadkiel, Samuel, and Jophiel. Each of them has a specific mission that deserves closer attention.

Archangel Michael

Archangel Michael Image

Michael in the Hebrew language means “Who is like God?” or “Who is equal to God?”.

The people of Israel have always considered him their protector. Michael is the patron Saint of the military, sailors, merchants, police, and Lightworkers. But everyone can turn to him for protection and help.

This Heavenly Teacher can help you increase your self-esteem, discover your talents, solve difficult situations, realize the true path, overcome your fears, and protect you from physical and emotional dangers.

Michael has been depicted from the earliest Christian times as a commander, who holds in his right hand a spear with which he attacks Lucifer/Satan and in his left hand, he holds a green palm branch. At the top of the spear, there is a linen ribbon with a red cross.

Archangel Gabriel

Archangel Gabriel Image

Gabriel means “God is my strength” or “Might of God”.

He is the herald of the mysteries of God.

Archangel Gabriel is often depicted as follows: in his right hand, he holds a lantern with a lighted taper inside, and in his left hand, a mirror of green jasper. The mirror signifies the wisdom of God as a hidden mystery. He is clothed in blue or white garments. He can also be depicted carrying a lily.

Exegesis narrates that Muhammad saw Gabriel in his full angelic splendor only twice, the first time being when he received his first revelation. Gabriel was the angel who informed Zachariah of John’s birth, as well as Mary of the future nativity of Jesus. Also, Gabriel was one of three angels who had earlier informed Abraham of the birth of Isaac.

It is believed that Gabriel brings good news and shares secret divine knowledge. He helps with conception, heals infertility, supports parents and guardians, and helps people involved in creativity, journalism, and broadcasting.

Archangel Raphael

Archangel Raphael Image

Raphael means “It is God who heals” or “God Heals”.

He is an archangel responsible for healing. It is this heavenly teacher who is most asked to heal, reduce, and relieve pain. He helps to heal not only people but also animals.

Archangel Raphael is a patron of medicine, medical workers, healers, the blind, happy meetings, nurses, physicians, and travelers. When a person is ready, Raphael can assist him/her with the third eye opening, the development of clairvoyance, and psychic abilities.

Raphael is said to guard pilgrims on their journeys, and is often depicted holding a staff. He is also often depicted holding or standing on a fish, which alludes to his healing of Tobit with the fish’s gall. Early mosaics often show him the clothing of a Byzantine courtier.

The color of Raphael’s energy is emerald. Therefore, for healing, you can visualize how the patient’s body is enveloped in a gentle, emerald energy cocoon.

Archangel Uriel

Archangel Uriel Image

Uriel means “God is my light”, or “Light of God”.

In Hermetic Kabbalah, Uriel’s name is commonly spelled “Auriel”. He is regarded as the archangel of the North, and of the element of Earth.

Uriel helps people gain knowledge and wisdom.

He is intended to warn mankind of future misfortunes by sending information to people through the prophets. Thus, in ancient times, Uriel warned Noah of an imminent flood.

It is believed that it is Archangel Uriel who brought to earth the knowledge of alchemy.

Uriel provides assistance and support to researchers, writers, alchemists, people who have chosen the spiritual path, and those who study various sciences. He is considered an “educator of the mind”.

Archangel Uriel is usually depicted holding a sword in his right hand, and a flame in his left.

Archangel Sealtiel (Saint Selaphiel the Archangel)

Archangel Sealtiel Image

Sealtiel means “Intercessor of God”.

He helps people interpret dreams, break addictions, protect children, preside over exorcisms, and rule over music in heaven.

Sealtiel is the Patron Saint of prayer and worship. He encourages prayer and, as an intercessor, prays for people, for their health and salvation. He is assisted by Prayer Angels. Together, they help our prayers and requests rise to the level of God.

He is depicted with his face and eyes lowered, holding his hands on his bosom in prayer.

Archangel Zadkiel (Sachiel, Zedekiel, Zadakiel, Tzadkiel, Zedekul)

Archangel Zadkiel Image

Zadkiel means “Grace of God”.

Archangel Zadkiel is the archangel of freedom, benevolence, and mercy. He is the Patron Angel of all who forgives. Rabbinical tradition considers him to be the angel of mercy.

He represents divine generosity, mercy, absolute freedom, compassion, and justice. It was Zadkiel who stopped Abraham when he wanted to sacrifice his son.

Archangel Zadkiel helps to heal the soul and transform the negative emotions of resentment, condemnation, and anxiety into faith, compassion, and forgiveness. Zadkiel promotes unconditional acceptance, first of all, of yourself, your divine essence, and then other people. He helps in learning, research, improves memory.

He is usually depicted holding a knife or dagger.

Zadkiel is associated with the violet color.

In Jewish mysticism and Western ritual magic, Zadkiel is associated with the planet Jupiter.

Archangel Jegudiel

Archangel Jegudiel Image

Jegudiel means “Glorifier of God”.

How To Communicate With Archangels?

The heavenly teachers do not violate the freedom of people and do not affect their lives without their personal consent. They can help only in the case when the person consciously asks for help. And they are happy to respond to the call.

It is important to know that any person can communicate with Archangels, regardless of whether they belong to any religion, spiritual or esoteric traditions.

Archangels exist in the ninth dimension. Spiritual practices help to open a portal, gate, or corridor through meditation in order to gain access to this dimension. But you need to have a clear understanding of why you’re doing this and be aware of the responsibility of your actions.

Set up clear intention! The intention may be to re-connect with God-Consciousness, to learn unconditional love, to get answers to unsolved questions, to receive instructions for your spiritual development, and so on. Egoistic interest should in no case be at the heart of these intentions.

The simplest way to communicate is to call and pray. Your prayers can be either canonical or arbitrary, coming from the heart.

Helpful Tips On How To Communicate With Archangels:

  1. The most important thing is FAITH. Distrust can destroy any of your intentions.
  2. Do not offer “a deal” to Archangels, such as “if you help me, I will do this and that…”. You can only communicate with the Higher realms in the language of love and gratitude.
  3. Do not ask for revenge or punishment of anyone. Otherwise, all the negativity will come back to you.
  4. Choose a quiet, peaceful place to address the Archangel, where you feel safe and at peace.
  5. Don’t tell anyone about your intention. Let this be your little secret.
  6. It is desirable to cleanse before you communicate with Archangels. For a few days, give up non-vegetarian food.
  7. Take a shower or a salt bath before starting your communication.
  8. Be quiet and calm. Light a candle, incense. If this is not possible, then just imagine that you did it. Visualize how the light coming from the candle clears the space around you and in your mind.
  9. Sit comfortably. Place your hands in front of the Heart chakra with your palms facing each other. Read the appeal to the Archangel emotionally, heartfelt, and sincerely. Clearly indicate what you need help with.

The appeal may read like this: “Great and powerful Archangel (name), I call you into my life and ask you to help me restore my health (bring peace to my family, etc.). I accept your help and guidance with love and gratitude!»

After that, stay in peace and quiet for as long as you feel it needed. You should be in a meditative and peaceful state. Pay attention to the feelings, and emotions that fill you. You may receive some information or visions that you’ve never had before. Try to understand what they are telling you. At the end, thank the Great heavenly powers for their help!

Important! Everyone gets their own personal experience from such communication. There is no universal rules here.

The Bottom Line

Archangels are heavenly disembodied teachers and helpers who are happy to respond to our requests and prayers. Communication with them helps us to make our life more conscious, harmonious, and happy. They can help us to find our purpose, see the facets of the divine in our earthly life, spiritually awaken, and transform our consciousness to a higher level.

Asteya: Surprising Ways You Could Be Stealing Without Knowing

Published

on

Asteya Image

Asteya is the Sanskrit term for “non-stealing” and the third Yama of Patanjali’s 5 Yamas of the Yoga Sutras. Most people who practice yoga and follow a spiritual path are pretty sure they never steal. However, this yoga principle means so much more than not physically taking something from someone else. In this article, I want to share with you profound knowledge of what asteya really means and how we can be stealing without even knowing it. Also, I’ll give you some tips on how you can practice Asteya in your daily life.

What Is Asteya?

The word “asteya” is a compound derived from the Sanskrit language, where “a” refers to “non-” and “steya” refers to “practice of stealing” or “something that can be stolen”. Thus, asteya means “non-stealing”.

Asteya is an ethical principle that means not taking what is not ours and not striving to possess what is not ours, as well as honesty and decency.

Asteya is the third Yama of Patanjali’s Five Yamas.

best books for spiritual awakening Patanjali image

Patanjali’s Yamas include 5 ethical and moral principles:

  1. Ahiṃsā (अहिंसा): nonviolence, non-harming other living beings.
  2. Satya (सत्य): truthfulness, non-falsehood.
  3. Asteya (अस्तेय): non-stealing.
  4. Aparigraha (अपरिग्रहः): non-avarice, non-possessiveness.
  5. Brahmacharya (ब्रह्मचर्य): chastity, marital fidelity, or sexual restraint.

All of them impose certain moral restrictions on the actions that we make in our desire to possess the goods that we believe we should have. Most of us, always desire more than what we already have. However, according to yogic philosophy, we always get exactly what we need and what we deserve. And if we think that we deserve or need more than what we already have it means that our ego is overactive and our mind is in disharmony with our spirit.

It is essential to understand that the availability of benefits, both material and non-material, depends on the amount of energy we have accumulated. When we are possessed by our desires, we lose our energy. And what is more important is that we deprive ourselves of the opportunity to self-actualize on the spiritual path, because any desire to gain material possessions leads to the waste of internal spiritual potential.

sadhguru quotes image

As long as a person does not realize that the only source of true happiness is not outside but inside of him, in his spirit, he will not be able to give up external goods that bring him only the illusion of happiness, since it is material, and therefore temporary and transient.

The ego “steals” the spirit of a person, pushing him to such thoughts and actions that, according to egoistic needs, lead to wasting time and effort on something that the person does not really need. For all that he needs, he already has.

We all need to realize that ego can never be satisfied. It will be pushing you for desiring more and promising absolute happiness when you satisfy your desires. Your ego will demand more and more from you and eventually you will start feeling more and more unhappy because you are never satisfied no matter how many material possessions you receive.

It is essential to realize and accept the fact that nothing in the external material world really belongs to us. All the material things that we have are only temporarily our own. The only thing we really have is the spirit. We have come to this planetary incarnation to gain spiritual experience, and this is the only thing we should strive for in our life.

And therefore, we should always remind ourselves to be satisfied with the number of material goods that we have since their true purpose is to help our spiritual development. All the necessary goods that we need for the exact moment we already have. Even if you feel it’s too little, remind yourself that you need to experience this exact “little amount” for your spiritual development, that you need to learn to be satisfied with that “little” that God gives you.

To keep the soul in the body there is no need to get money and material goods dishonestly. We must resolutely get rid of the desire to possess unnecessary material things, realizing that these surpluses only burden the person.

The main focus on the Spiritual Path should not be to receive unnecessary benefits from external objects but to be able to have as much as necessary to advance along the Path.

The Four Types Of Stealing

Forgiveness quotes image

According to Shrii Shrii Anandamurti teaching, there are four types of stealing:

#1: Physical theft of any material object

Ordinarily, those persons who steal material objects are called thieves. But thieves are not only those persons who flee with stolen objects after committing armed robbery. Whatever is taken in possession by the use of brute physical force, of arms or of the strength of intellect, whether it is money or goods, amounts to theft, because behind such actions there is the intention of taking others’ property deceitfully. However, acceptance of anything like money, crops, gold, etc., in exchange for money in a proper way is not theft.

#2: Psychic theft

Here you did not take material possession of anything, but you planned it in your mind. This also called “theft”, because you have mentally stolen. Only the fear of law or of adverse criticism prevented you from doing the action physically.

#3: Depriving others of their due physically

Even if you do not take possession of what belongs to others, but you deprive others of what is their due, you become responsible for their loss. This is also stealing.

#4: Depriving others of their due mentally

If you do not actually deprive anybody of what is justifiably their due, but you plan in your mind to do so, that too amounts to theft.

Siddhi

what is spiritual maturity image

Siddhi is a Sanskrit noun which can be translated as “perfection”, “accomplishment”, “attainment”, or “success”.

The one who follows this virtue perfectly in his life gets everything he needs in the very near future. But these are not necessarily material things. It can also be health, knowledge, or, for example, favorable circumstances — everything that appears in an intangible form and, as a rule, what you really need at the moment.

To one established in truthfulness, actions and their results become subservient.

Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (Chapter II, Sutra 37)

When we don’t follow the Asteya principle, we will have to pay back whether we like it or not. If we take or desire something that does not belong to us, sooner or later we will have to pay a karmic debt. It’s not necessarily going to be something material taken away from us, it can be a loss of health, a loss love, a loss of a job, a loss of happiness, a loss of loved ones, etc.

Suprising Ways You Could Be Stealing Without Knowing

Now let me share with you some surprising ways you could be stealing without knowing that go far beyond material possessions.

#1: Desiring something that belongs to somebody else

what is asteya image

Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar says that “(Even) sitting and wishing ‘I wish I had those looks’; ‘I wish I had that voice’; ‘I wish I had that car’; ‘I wish I had that power’; ‘I wish I had that money’, you have stolen.”

These kinds of thoughts can be very destructive to you and to the person who owns whatever you desire to have. You are mentally vamping that person and “stealing” his energy. These thoughts lead to jealousy and anger.

Instead of wanting what other people have, switch your attention to what you already have. Focus on gratitude and notice every little gift God gives to you. If you start practicing gratitude instead of “wishing” and “wanting”, very soon you will notice that you have enough and moreover you will feel happy with whatever you have at the moment.

#2: Desiring abilities, talents, qualities, gifts, skills that other people have

It may seem like you get inspired by the way some people express themselves, their talents, creative abilities, etc. You may think: “I wish I was as charismatic as him”, or “as confident as her”, or “as professional and focused as him”, etc. It may seem like an admiration of somebody’s talent, however, it’s not what you think it is.

The feeling of lack of something sounds in your head like “I don’t have this, but I want it!”. First, you start following this person’s Instagram page for daily inspiration. Then you do more research on him/her, start watching his/her videos, reading his/her blog. And the more you do it, the worse you feel about yourself. Slowly and gradually your inspiration gets replaced with envy and jealousy for what they have and what you don’t.

Every time you think: “I wish I had her/his …”, you mentally steal.

Moreover, by thinking these thoughts you may also be causing self-harm by not allowing your own unique gifts to flourish. You see, you steal your own light when you cannot acknowledge and honor the unique gifts that you bring in the world.

Simply recognize all the virtues that you appreciate in others and realize that they are present in you in seed form. You only have to nurture them.

– Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Instead of wishing somebody else’s gifts start noticing your own talents and unique qualities! If we are grateful and appreciate your own unique gifts, the expression in the same instance could be something like, “I truly admire blessings that the Divine has showered upon you, and I feel so blessed and happy that I have a friend with such wonderful gifts. Shine on!” In this case, you are looking at others’ blessings as your own blessings too. Thus, you become capable of an enthusiastic and heartfelt expression of appreciation!

#3: Worrying about the future or brooding over the past

emotional hygiene image

When we worry about the future or brood over the past we steal energy from the present moment and the opportunity of dwelling in the pure bliss of our being, of living in this very moment.

Think about how many times during the day you’re thinking about planning for the future or worrying about something that may happen? How many times during the day indulge in the memories of your past? All these thoughts distract you from the joy of the present moment. Even when you’re making plans or sharing memories, make sure you are mindful and present in the now.

Asteya principle teaches us not to steal the pure joy of the now of our lives.

#4: Staying in your comfort zone

When you remain in your comfort zone, you steal away your own possibilities to enjoy the best things in life. You restrict your own potential, progress, and growth into the world of limitless opportunities. 

Moreover, when you don’t open up your potential, you restrict the world from enjoying the benefits your inner Light can bring! You have your own unique mission that brought you to this planet. This mission is somehow connected to the collective evolution of human beings. And by staying in your comfort zone, you are suppressing your Light, thus you’re stealing the part of your contribution into collective evolution.

#5: Stealing time

narcissist talk image

People have a tendency to steal time not only from themselves, but also from others.

Asteya teaches us to watch how we use our time. We can invest our time in searching for truth, reconnecting with our Higher Self, and fulfilling our mission on Earth. Or we can use our time to pursue illusory things that feed our ego.

There is nothing stable in the outside world. We live inside a huge game of God – “Maya”. Inside this game, everything changes, nothing is permanent. It’s like sandcastles: you can build a castle on the sand but you can’t expect that it will be permanent. One wave can destroy it. And if you are too attached to the castle, its destruction can cause you suffering.

On the contrary, your spirit does not change, it is something that will never leave you. And the better connection you have with your spirit, the more secure you will feel in life.

Therefore, Asteya teaches us that time is precious. And if we spend it on chasing temporary things, instead of investing it into spiritual development, then we violate Asteya.

If we “steal” time from another person, especially from a spiritual practitioner, guru, teacher, master, or yogi, then we also strongly violate Asteya. You see, if you steal time from people who are already wasting it, it is not a big deal. But if you steal time from a person who is focused on spiritual practice, then there is a very strong penalty for this. Hence, there are a lot of legends (for example, the Mahabharata is literally full of such legends), when yogis meditate, and someone disturbs them from this state, then a powerful flow of energy burns the offenders.

A person who practices Asteya does not steal either their own or someone else’s time. Such a person tries not to attract the attention of other people and respects their time. When a person begins to sink into Asteya, he mostly speaks to the point. His words and questions are very constructive.

People who violate the principle of Asteya always try to draw attention to themselves. Such people may ask lots of questions, send you lots of text messages/emails, but they are not really interested in your answers. All they care about is to get your emotional attention. These situations need to be monitored! Value your time by not letting people steal it from you.

How to Practice Asteya?

As you can see, Asteya practice includes not just taking away something material from other people but also removing such qualities as greed, jealousy, envy, desire for someone else’s property, etc.

Here are helpful tips on how you can make Asteya a part of your daily life.

#1: Practice non-attachment

how to practice asteya image

Start with removing all attachments to existing material things and non-material objects, whether they are fame, success, titles, or any achievements in this world. One who is not attached to anything, is free from possessive claims and does not want anything for himself personally, and accordingly does not consider himself the owner of anything.

#2: Be satisfied with what you have

Every time you start thinking: “I wish I had this or that”, switch your focus to gratitude. Start counting your blessings instead of daydreaming. Bring your attention to the present moment and find at least 10 things you are grateful for.

#3: Value your time

Don’t let others steal your time. If you see that a person asks for help but never follows your advice, asks questions but doesn’t care about your answers if you feel energetically exhausted every time you talk to this person, you’re dealing with energy vampires who are stealing your time and energy. In situations like this, you need to remember about Asteya. Do not let other people steal your time!

#4: Pay your debts

According to Asteya principle, it is not good to take credits. We should strive to live according to our financial possibilities. However, for most of us, credits became a common thing and we can’t imagine life without them. If you already have debts and credits but you still want to practice Asteya, try to pay your debts in time. Do not delay!

#5: Don’t buy lottery tickets

A lottery is a disregard of Asteya. The initial intention is based on the desire of having more than you already have. Greed makes people buy lottery tickets. And the lottery itself is receiving something that isn’t yours.

The Bottom Line

Do not seek to enrich yourself or improve your financial situation at the expense of others. Do not desire more than you have. And most importantly, always remember that all the things that we have been given to us only for temporary use. Focus on your spirit and your soul. Remember that true happiness is always internal. If your happiness and satisfaction depend on external things, you will eventually lose it and it will lead to suffering.
