Sleep Paralysis: Why Do I Have Night Terrors?

Have you ever been caught in a grey zone, where your mind is wide awake, but your body is still fast asleep? Do you find yourself in a nightmarish reality where there’s no way out? Have you felt like you want to scream for help in your sleep but you can’t make a sound? Welcome to the reality of sleep paralysis where your night terrors get manifested!

In this article, we will answer the most common questions people ask about sleep paralysis and share with you some helpful tips on what you can do to avoid such a terrifying experience. Read on!

What Is Sleep Paralysis?

Sleep paralysis is a temporary sleep anomaly, when a person, while half-asleep, realizes that he can not move or make sounds, which provokes a panic attack.

It occurs when you pass between stages of wakefulness and sleep. It is during these transitions, that you may feel unable to move or speak. This state can last for a few seconds up to a few minutes.

During this state, you may also feel pressure or a sense of choking.

Many people have experienced this phenomenon at least once.

Why Do I Have Sleep Paralysis?

Some researchers are inclined to believe that the occurrence of sleep paralysis may be associated with the REM sleep phase when the human brain has increased activity. You can recognize it by the rapid movement of the eyeballs under the eyelids. In this phase, we dream.

During REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, your body is almost paralyzed: only vital organs work. Muscle tone is reduced by signals sent from the brain by certain neurotransmitters (gamma-aminobutyric acid and glycine).

The REM sleep phase usually lasts from 30 seconds to 2 minutes.

You go through the REM sleep phase when you are falling asleep, waking up, and during sleep. At this stage, your brain is in an active state and you can see dreams or various kinds of hallucinations.

The most terrifying thing about sleep paralysis is that it’s usually accompanied by vivid nightmares, and sometimes hallucinations (such as attacks of demonic creatures). This leads to very painful experiences and makes you feel completely powerless and trapped.

During the REM sleep phase, there is no synchronization between changes in the brain and a decrease in muscle tone, which can provoke sleep paralysis.

But why is there such a mismatch in the work of the brain and muscles? Some researchers suggest that genetics is to blame. Others suggest looking for reasons in our daily routine.

Here are the most common causes of sleep paralysis.

#1: Sleep position

If you often sleep on your back, you may be at increased risk. Experimentally proven that sleeping on your back increases the likelihood of sleep paralysis. 50% of cases of sleep paralysis occur in this position.

#2: Brain waves

During episodes of sleep paralysis, there is a disproportionate amount of alpha waves with intermittent bursts of beta waves, especially in cases where people have reported visual hallucinations.

#3: Drugs

The use of various drugs, whether pharmaceutical, over-the-counter, or illegal, can contribute to the development of sleep paralysis. Even alcohol is considered a potential pathogen, as it can disrupt various stages of sleep.

#4: Violation of neurotransmission

Disturbed levels of neurotransmitters are thought to increase your susceptibility to sleep paralysis. In particular, GABA (an inhibitory neurotransmitter) and glycine may be the cause.

#5: Mental illness

Those who suffer from mental illnesses such as anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, or schizophrenia may be more likely to have sleep paralysis. These conditions are characterized by sleep disorders, fluctuations in neurotransmitters, and are often treated with strong psychiatric medications that can easily increase the likelihood of this phenomenon.

#6: Chaotic sleep schedule, its disorders and deprivation

If you work shifts or don’t have strict sleep and wake times, you may be at an increased risk of sleep paralysis. This disrupts the circadian rhythm and sleep cycle. It leads to changes in the concentration of neurotransmitters, brain wave activity, regional blood flow, etc. All these changes increase the risk.

These 6 factors are the most common causes of sleep paralysis. However, there are also other reasons that you may need to consider, such as:

  • Genetic predisposition;
  • Leg cramps;
  • Neurodegenerative diseases (dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s);
  • Stress;
  • Neurological disorders (migraines and epilepsy);
  • Mental trauma.

What Are The Symptoms Of Sleep Paralysis?

Demonic Attack Image

#1: Immobility

The main symptom associated with sleep paralysis is the inability to move. If you found yourself completely motionless in your sleep, you are experiencing sleep paralysis.

#2: Inability to speak

One of the most noticeable and frustrating symptoms is the inability to speak or even produce any sounds. Imagine that you are stuck in a dream or dream-like state, but you are still conscious and feeling that a demon is about to attack you. Instead of screaming for help, you can’t even move your lips and feel tortured.

#3: Semi-conscious state

Some people remain fully conscious during sleep paralysis experience and can recall the entire episode. Most people are semi-conscious, which means that they have a certain degree of awareness or “flashes” of consciousness.

#4: Chest pressure

Some people feel a strong pressure on the chest when experiencing this phenomenon. Such pressure may feel as if a pile of cargo is piled on the chest, or as if a demonic entity is pressing on the chest. This pressure may occur due to breathing difficulty during the paralysis.

#5: Shortness of breath

You may also have difficulty breathing when having sleep paralysis. It can be caused by the specific position in which you fell asleep, pressure on your chest, or as a result of panic.

#6: Fear

Sleep paralysis often leads to a panic attack. When you find yourself helpless in your dream where you can neither move nor cry for help, you feel panicked and terrified.

#7: Helplessness

This is the most common symptom. You are aware of what is happening, but there is nothing you can do about it. If in addition, you have a nightmare or hallucinations, then everything only gets worse. Which again leads to panic.

#8: Hallucinations

Many people experience auditory hallucinations (hearing voices), visual hallucinations (seeing weird things, demonic beings, etc.), and sometimes tactile hallucinations (feeling things) that are not based on reality. In rare cases, a person may even report smelling something that is not based on reality (olfactory hallucinations). Common hallucinations in cases of sleep paralysis include animals, buzzing, demons, opening doors, footsteps, pressure, and whispers.

#9: Unusual sensations

Most unusual sensations that you may have during sleep paralysis experience are considered a byproduct of REM sleep. These unusual sensations are perceived by the consciousness as “real”, although, in fact, they are the result of chaotic brain activity. Unusual sensations may include feeling as if you are moving, swimming, or pushing; strange smells or sights; feeling stuck in a dream; etc.

How To Avoid Sleep Paralysis?

If you have ever had a terrifying sleep paralysis you definitely don’t want to experience it ever again. So, what can we do to avoid it? Here are some helpful tips!

#1: Exclude medical factors

Since the exact causes of sleep paralysis remain unknown, it is important to exclude all possible diseases that may contribute to it. These include checking for neurological conditions, working with a sleep specialist (to determine if you have a sleep disorder), checking for hormones, vitamin/micronutrient deficiencies, and others.

In addition to excluding medical indications, it may be important to exclude exposure to toxins. Regular detox cleanse can help you to minimize unpleasant sleep experiences.

If you have medical problems or have been exposed to environmental toxins, you will need to receive appropriate treatment. In many cases, treating the underlying condition will improve sleep quality.

#2: Create a proper sleep routine

If you are still experiencing sleep paralysis after you have ruled out or cured various medical problems, the next step is to adjust your sleep routine which includes:

  • Going to bed at the same time every night;
  • Wake up at the same time every morning;
  • Get approximately the same number of hours of sleep.

#3: Minimize possible sleep disturbances

Turn off phone notifications, block out outside noises and lights, and make sure your partner doesn’t roll on you in the middle of the night. If you have pets, make sure they don’t bother you in the middle of the night. Make sure that you don’t fall asleep with the TV on and avoid anything that might interfere with your sleep.

#4: Practice digital detox before bedtime

Cell phone, computer, TV, or other electronic devices before going to bed usually disrupt the quality of sleep. Try to avoid the use of electronics for 1-3 hours before bedtime.

#5: Avoid electromagnetic radiation

If you sleep near a computer, mobile phone, or Wi-Fi router, your sleep quality will be reduced. Put your cell phone in airplane mode and turn off the Wi-Fi router before going to bed.

#6: Turn off the light

Do your best to darken the room by blocking all bright light sources. Put light-blocking curtains or blinds on the windows to prevent light from entering during sleep.

#7: Increase the amount of sleep

Sleep deprivation or restriction is a factor that can increase the likelihood of developing sleep paralysis. Despite the fact that the quality of sleep should be more important than its quantity, you should sleep enough to feel mentally and physically rested after waking up.

Most experts suggest sleeping for at least 7-9 hours. However, it all depends on individual characteristics. If you are engaged in intense physical activity during the day, you may need more than 9 hours of sleep to get quality rest. Do what you think is right, but don’t skimp on the amount of sleep — this can increase the risk of sleep paralysis.

#8 Adjust your sleeping position

As we already mentioned before, in most cases, people who experience sleep paralysis sleep on their backs. So try changing your position while you sleep. Try sleeping on your side.

#9: Relax

If you are experiencing sleep paralysis, you may need to apply some relaxation techniques to solve this problem. Anxiety, trauma, and depression have been found to increase the risk of this phenomenon. Stress is known to interfere with sleep, and in some cases, the main cause of sleep paralysis may be over-activation of the sympathetic nervous system.

Daily meditation practice and breathing exercises (pranayama) will help you reduce anxiety and stress. It should significantly improve the quality and quantity of your sleep and reduce the risk of experiencing sleep paralysis.

#10: Start a sleep diary

For some people, it might be helpful to consider using a sleep diary. When you wake up, write about what you experienced during sleep paralysis. Write down how long it lasted and keep track of how well you slept. Keeping a sleep diary will help you keep track of all the factors that can contribute to sleep paralysis.

The Bottom Line

Sleep paralysis can be a terrifying experience that can make you feel panic attacks. If you have occasional sleep paralysis, you can take the above steps to control this disorder. Start by making sure you get enough sleep. Do what you can to relieve stress in your life. Try new sleeping positions if you sleep on your back. And if sleep paralysis happens again, shake it off (when you fully wake up) and realize that there is nothing to be scared of!

Pineal Gland: Unblocking the Gateway to Expanded Consciousness

Published

on

pineal gland image

Yogis believe that the space between the eyebrows is very important. And that explains why this space is marked with a colored dot in some cultures. Similarly, located between two hemispheres of our brain is the Pineal gland. A very significant pea-sized organ is also referred to as the Ajna chakra. So what exactly is the Pineal gland, and why is it important? We will be answering these and more in this article.

What Is the Pineal Gland?

Also known as the third eye, the Pineal gland is indirectly connected to the eye’s retina. The retina is the location of our eyes’ light receptors. One of the Pineal gland’s major functions is to regulate our diurnal cycle (sleep and wake cycles). How does it achieve this function?

The Scientific Explanation

Our eyes, via the retina, receive light signals. The retina then sends these signals to the Suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), also known as our biological clock, via the optic nerve, which releases a chemical known as Glutamate. 

This chemical activates a chain of reactions in the SCN, including releasing other chemicals that affect different nuclei in the body. Of significance to our discussion is the paraventricular nucleus (PVN). When the PVN receives the light stimulus, it sends that signal directly to the Superior Cervical Ganglion (SCG), which directly connects to the Pineal Gland.  

The SCG secretes Norepinephrine (NE) chemical, which binds to the receptors in the Pineal gland. This chemical then stimulates the synthesis of Melatonin (i.e., converts Tryptophan to 5-HTP to Serotonin which then converts to Melatonin.) 

Note

During the day, SCG secretes low Norepinephrine (NE) chemical, while this chemical is secreted in higher quantities in darkness. Eventually, the body has to find a balance because excessive secretion of Melatonin is dangerous, and too little is equally not OK. 

The Melatonin secreted by the Pineal gland is then sent back to the SCN to regulate the biological clock accordingly.

In a Nut Shell:

The Pineal Gland secretes Melatonin, which regulates our sleep and wake cycle via the Suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) located in the Hypothalamus. In the darkness, more Melatonin is secreted, which instructs the SCN to induce the sleep process. So if you don’t feel drowsy at night, try switching off the lights. 

Similarly, less Melatonin is secreted in bright light, which tells the SCN to keep you awake.

We should also mention that for some animals, especially the amphibian, fish, and reptiles, the pineal gland is positioned directly under the skin to receive and process the light signals directly. Now it becomes clear why the pineal gland is also called the third eye.

From Spiritual Perspective

The Pineal gland is responsible for our connection with spiritual realms and Cosmic Consciousness. The active pineal gland allows us to attain supernatural powers, such as clairvoyance, psychic vision, telepathy, etc. Lucid dreaming and astral traveling are also linked to the active pineal gland.

How Can You Activate Your Pineal Gland?

The pineal gland plays a great role in our metaphysical practices and spiritual development. Sometimes, when the pineal gland is blocked, people have trouble falling asleep, which is when modern medicine prescribes Melatonin supplements or sleeping pills.

In this article, we want to share with you easy yet powerful tips on how to unblock your pineal gland. Follow the below easy steps each day and unlock the key to expanded consciousness. 

5 Tips On Unblocking the Pineal Gland

#1: Focus Your Consciousness On Your Forehead 

Naturally, where our attention goes energy will start to flow. As you go on with your daily activities, beware of the spot in the middle of your forehead. You can also decide to mark that spot for an easier reminder. For example, Sadhus put Chandan on this spot to make it feel tighter and consequently develop an awareness of that spot.

#2: Yoga

With your eyes closed, roll them towards the center of your eyebrows. Stay in that position until your focus shifts from that place to a level of heightened consciousness. Initially, you might struggle to transcend. You might even experience a slight headache. Don’t give up. Keep practicing until you get it right. 

#3: Managing Your Sources of Light

Naturally, the sun is supposed to set in the evening, and darkness sets in. It’s time to sleep. However, the modern-day lifestyle is always competing with nature. What do you do when you get home in the evening? You want to catch up with social media, your television is on, light bulbs are on, and all the enemies of sleep kick in at full throttle. And that’s OK. We can’t compare the needs of today with those a few decades ago, right? Heck, some of us have to go for a night shift.  

The best practice with such a lifestyle is to switch off all light sources at least an hour before bed. This way, your gland will have produced enough Melatonin to induce a healthy sleep pattern. Similarly, reduce your exposure to electromagnetic pollution

#4: Eye Health

We need to maintain optimum eye health at all times since this gland depends on the signals sent by the eye, right? An easy way to keep your eyes healthy is through routine eye exercises such as continuously rotating your eyes for a few minutes each morning. Such exercises strengthen your eye muscles. 

#5: Limit Your Fluoride Intake

Research has linked fluoride to one of the causes of Pineal gland calcification. Fluoride is mainly found in tap water and commercial kinds of toothpaste. It would be best If you could find alternatives. For example, use organic toothpaste types free from fluoride. Also, install a specialized water filter for your tap water. The kind that works on Reverse Osmosis Filtration to get rid of the fluoride in water. 

The Bottom Line

The pineal gland is one of the most important organs in our body. Sadly, due to poor health and aging, this organ is highly susceptible to failure due to calcification. Follow the above guidelines and take care of your pineal gland. And if you’re already experiencing signs of failure, remember it’s never too late to reverse them. Practice meditation, overall well-being, and proper eye health. You will unlock your key to heightened consciousness.

The August Full Moon Brings Global Hypnosis, the World is Under a Spell

Published

on

The Full Harvest Moon 2021 image

The full moon rises on Thursday, August 11th. According to Jyotish (Vedic astrology), it occurs in the sign of Capricorn. In this article, I will share everything you need to know about the full moon in Capricorn and give some tips on how to make this time balanced and smooth.

When Is The Full Moon In Capricorn?

The full moon in Capricorn will occur on Thursday, August 11th, 2022, reaching peak illumination at 9:36 P.M. Eastern Time. For the best view of the full moon, look towards the southeast after sunset to catch a glimpse of it.

The Full Moon In Capricorn

During the full moon period, we are most affected by the constellation in which the moon resides. The full moon in August fills our minds with the energies of the Capricorn constellation.

The impact of the full moon in Capricorn is contradictory since it brings both positive and negative influences. On the negative side, it brings stiffness, melancholy, and feeling of loneliness. On the positive side, it increases self-control, caution, ambition, patience, conservatism, and a sense of responsibility.

The Spiritual Lesson Of This Full Moon

Capricorn teaches us patience. This is the lesson we all need to learn. Tune yourself to the wave of patience and calmly meet the situations that come into your life. Try to be kinder with your family.

This is also the time to focus on your main goals in life. Think about your priorities and what distracts you from accomplishing your goals. This is the time when you need to let go of things that don’t serve your life purpose. For example, if you feel like social media is taking too much time from your life and distracts you from doing something meaningful, maybe it is time to take a break from it and do a social media detox. Or, let’s say you feel like you have no energy to focus on your goals. Well, maybe it’s time to rethink your diet and unhealthy habits. Maybe it’s time to focus on eating healthy and doing daily exercises. Whatever it is, this full moon is a great time to let go of things that don’t serve your life purpose!

If you don’t focus on your goals during this full moon, Capricorn’s energy will make you feel intense emotions and be melancholic. Therefore, try to focus on some goals, even if they are small. This will satisfy you and make your energy move in the right direction.

The Full Moon In Dhanista Nakshatra

Full Moon In Capricorn Image

According to Vedic astrology, this full moon takes place in the lunar mansion of Dhanista Nakshatra. Let’s take a closer look at this lunar mansion and what kind of energy it represents.

Dhanista is a Mars-ruled nakshatra. It is symbolically associated with the drum or flute. Known as ‘the star of the symphony’ it symbolizes the unrelenting beat of the passage of time. Drums are usually associated with deeper undercurrents that move beyond normal perception. As the mridangam vibrates its rhythm into the aether, it has a powerfully hypnotizing effect on its listeners. The energy of this nakshatra is much like the pied-piper merrily leading his entourage under its melodious spell. A drum and flute are hollow, therefore, words you hear during this time may actually be empty and hold little truth behind them.

It is expected that the August full moon will be a time when people in leadership positions will be especially thirsty for power. You may see world leaders giving promising speeches that will make people feel more hopeful about the future, however, Dhanista nakshatra brings the energy of the manipulative spell, which means that these speeches, may actually be as empty as a hollow flute. Now is a good time to practice discernment with people in leadership positions. Use your own independent judgment before making any decision. During this time, you may hear a lot of promises that are ‘too good to be true’. Use your common sense and logic to analyze what you hear.

Health-related Issues

Dhanista Nakshatra may cause weakness of the lower back, liver, and urinary tract, thrombosis, high blood pressure, heart disease, arthritis of the knees and ankles, neurosis, injury to the shins, and the fracturing of leg bones.

The Nature of Dhanista Nakshatra: Tamas

Tamas guna represents a state of darkness, inertia, inactivity, and materiality. It manifests itself in the form of ignorance and brings internal resistance to any kind of changes or active actions.

The full moon in Tamas manifests itself as a lack of confidence and security. Tamas makes it difficult to control desires. It is necessary to be more attentive to the choice of food you make during the period of influence of this nakshatra.

How to Work With the Full Moon Energy?

5 Full Moon Effects on Empaths Image

If we do not live in the rhythm of the lunar cycle, we most likely will feel mood swings and fatigue during the full moon. Moreover, our emotional and even physical condition may deteriorate. Therefore, it is very important to learn to live in harmony with the Moon, especially when it’s at the peak of its activity.

Spend this time during the full moon doing some introspective work. Don’t let your energy run rampant with trying to make things happen. Time spent in silence, prayer, and meditation will be karmically rewarded. No matter what’s happening around you, stay calm, grounded, and centered.

To harmonize the moon’s influence on our lives, we can perform moon practices and adjust our lifestyle to the moon’s vibrations.

Spiritual Practices For the Full Moon

#1: Filling Up With Lunar Energy

This practice is especially recommended for those who have mood swings and unbalanced emotions.

Instructions:
  1. Place a glass of clean water on the windowsill (or next to the window) so that the moonlight reflects in it. Leave it there for the night.
  2. In the morning, drink that Moon water on an empty stomach. Tell your gratitude to the Moon. Chant the Moon mantra: OM CHANDRAYA NAMAHA (108 times).

#2: Full Moon Mantra Chanting For Attracting Abundance

During the Full Moon, go outside (backyard or patio), and stretch your hands up to the Moon. When looking at the Full Moon, set your intention to attract abundance into your life and repeat the following mantra for 12 minutes: OM SHRAAM SHREEM SHRAUM SAH CHANDRAMASE NAMAHA

#3: Chanting SHRIM Mantra

SHRIM is the mantra of beauty, love, and delight. This is the mantra of Lakshmi, the goddess of abundance, wealth, and beauty. Chanting this mantra helps to expand the sense of beauty, and attract love and abundance.

The Bottom Line

The August full moon will teach us how to distinguish truth from lies, how to properly express our thoughts, ideas, and desires through words, and practice conscious communication. This full moon can bring a lot to the surface, therefore, we need to take time for self-analysis, introspection, and self-reflection. Take time to reflect on what the full moon brings up for you. Get outside at night and let the light of the Moon shine upon you. Then, bring your attention back to what kind of changes are needed in your life. Think about what needs to shift for you to change your life for the better and take your consciousness to the next level of evolution. Focus on your higher goals and don’t let yourself get distracted by something that needs to be let go of.

Feng Shui Astrology For August 2022: What to Expect This Month?

Published

on

Feng Shui Astrology for August Image

Feng Shui astrology is based on the Chinese calendar. The dates of the beginning and the end of the months are different from those generally accepted in the Gregorian calendar. According to the Chinese calendar, the year’s fourth month starts on August 8th and ends on September 7th. Therefore, all the recommendations given in this article will be accurate until September 7th.

Feng Shui astrology believes that each month has its unique energy and character. Therefore, each month’s energy is expressed through one of the 12 Zodiac animals and connected to one of the five elements.

August 2022 is the month of the Earth Monkey. In this article, I will share what kind of energy and events to expect in August 2022 and how to choose dates for different events properly.

Feng Shui Astrology for August 2022

The Energy of the Month of the Earth Monkey

According to the Chinese calendar, August 2022 is ruled by the Earth Monkey.

In Chinese mythology, the Earth Monkey is an image of a rocky hollow mountain with caves containing a huge amount of minerals and metals inside. So, the Earth Monkey is potentially capable of generating great wealth. All it takes is just to get up and start putting effort into something. This month brings opportunities for creating a super-wealth.

The Earth Monkey encounters the Water Tiger of the year. This is one of the toughest options for collisions since both of these animals are quite active. Symbolically, we can imagine this as a collapse of the mountain from a strong explosion that reveals all its hidden treasure. But to “open” it, you first need to explode it!

Therefore, for most people, this month may feel especially stressful. Probably, the global battles for resources will flare up with renewed vigor. There may be an even higher risk of conflicts and disharmony between people, as well as between countries. It will be even more difficult for people to remain patient because of their short temper, so new emotional explosions are most likely this month. This will inevitably affect the economy, politics, and even nature (because of cosmic influences and electromagnetic storms). Abrupt changes in world management are also possible. August 2022 will most likely bring us some unexpected events.

Try to refrain from visiting potentially dangerous places and risky trips. Be especially careful on the water and in the mountains. It is advisable to be prepared for economic instability, have financial reserves, and keep some cash.

In August, it is recommended to avoid traveling to countries that are in the central areas. Whether it is Central Europe, Central Asia, or Central America. It can be especially dangerous and unstable in these territories.

This recommendation only applies to long-distance trips.

Auspicious Days In August 2022

August 9th and 21st, and September 7th are good dates for official openings, signing deals or contracts, making agreements, and purchasing a property. However, these dates are unsuitable for those born in the year of the Rat.

August 15th and 27th are good dates for starting long-term affairs. The projects started on these dates do not promise rapid development, but they will bring stable, reliable results. However, these dates are not suitable for those born in the year of the Horse.

August 19th and 31st are good dates for starting a new business. The business started on these dates will get all chances of success. However, these dates are unsuitable for those born in the year of the Dog.

Inauspicious Days In August 2022

August 8th and 20th and September 1st are the dates with high risks of accidents. It is recommended to be more careful on these dates, minimize risky activities, and keep emotions under control.

August 11th, 17th, 23rd, 29th, and September 4th are unfavorable dates to start anything important. These dates bring difficulties, obstacles, and problems.

August 10th and 22nd and September 3rd are not suitable dates for a lot of activity, organizing important events, or starting medical treatment. But you can use these dates to complete old cases.

Feng Shui Astrology For August 2022: Check Out Your Bagua Sectors

bagua image

If you are new to Bagua, make sure to read my articles:

The Feng Shui Bagua Map: How to Use It?

According to Feng Shui astrology, each of the nine sectors of your house is influenced by a certain type of energy. This energy changes from month to month, from year to year. In this particular article, I will not be talking about the annual chart but focusing on the energy influence of the month.

Now let me share with you Feng Shui Astrology for August 2022!

Center

This sector brings misfortune and loss of money this month. Unfortunately, many people will be affected by the energies of this sector. We could experience a financial crisis, cyber attacks, and many people may lose their money. Therefore, we all need to protect ourselves by carrying the Heart Sutra Pagoda Amulet and by displaying the Heart Sutra Pagoda in the central parts of our homes.

To activate this auspicious sector, display the Jade Emperor Windchime. This will help you to attract new opportunities. However, there is a possibility of accidents caused by metal objects for the residents of this sector and those whose main door faces Northwest. If you are one of them, it is essential for you to protect yourself by carrying the 28 Hums Protection Lotus Amulet.

West

This is a very misfortunate sector this month. The energy of the West sector brings an increased risk of burglary, betrayal, and injury this month. If you occupy the West room of the house or if your house faces West, you should carry the 28 Hums Protection Lotus Amulet and the Anti Burglary Amulet. This sector also brings a danger of physical injury caused by sharp metal objects. Make sure you protect yourself by carrying the Armoured Elephant and Rhino Amulet throughout the month.

To activate these auspicious energies, display the Sky Horse with the Flag of Success in the North sector of your house.

Southwest

This sector brings illness energies to its residents, especially to women. Those sleeping in the Southwest bedrooms are likely to feel extra tired this month. Elderly and sick people should move out of the Southwest sector for this month. Protect your health by displaying the Wu Lou with Joyous Cranes by your bedside if your bedroom is located in the Southwest sector of the house. Also, wear the Medicine Buddha Pendant throughout the month!

East

Feng Shui Astrology for August 2022 promises a quarrelsome and stressful month to those residing in the East rooms or whose houses face East. The energy of this sector brings disagreements, conflicts, gossip, arguments, legal problems, and even violent fights. To neutralize the quarrelsome energies, display the Magical Cosmic Apple here. Also, remove anything that makes too much noise from this sector (windchimes, TV, stereo, etc.). For married couples whose bedrooms are located in the East sector of the house, it is essential to display the Harmony Lock here to reduce the risk of incidents and fighting and keep their union strong.

Southeast

The energies of the Southeast sector bring romance luck, academic success, and improved creativity to its residents and those whose houses face the Southeast. If your bedroom is located in the Southeast and you are looking for love, this is a lucky time for you! This is a perfect time to activate your Peach Blossom luck! If you are in pursuit of academic success, activate your luck by displaying the Dragon Carp with a 3-Legged Toad in the Southeast sector of your house.

Feng Shui Astrology For August 2022: Bonus Tip

For sectors of the home where good energy resides, it is excellent to activate with plenty of noisy activity. Have the radio, TV, or fan placed here to churn up the energy so that there is a good level of noise. Also, it is very favorable to install brighter lights in these sectors. Moving the energy in these ways will encourage yang chi to manifest to your advantage.
