Reiki: Modern Astrology

Astrology holds a strong position in the Hindu mythology irrespective of the occasion. Be it a marriage or puja etc, the one thing we always care about is what the stars have to say.  But astrology is not only about the twelve sun signs and there are also other forms which not only cure difficulties but also provide the solutions of the minute problems.

Astrology branches include Tarot cards , Reiki etc . Now a days Reiki is the mostly used form.  Reiki is a spiritual practice which basically works on transferring of energy. It was developed by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui in the year 1922 and was constituted of two words Rei (which means spirit ,divine) and Ki (means consciousness, vital energy).

Mainly there are two branches of reiki i.e. the Japanese reiki and Western reiki. It is the Western one which is commonly used for the treatment. Reiki basically improves the imbalances of the body. Now a days because of many kinds of pressure around work and personal life, humans are surrounded by negative energies. Reiki helps someone in getting the negative vibes out from their life.

Reiki symbols are sacred and are important part of the reiki practice. There are three important reiki symbols which are considered important for the practice and are called as Cho Ku Rei ( power symbols), Sei He Ki ( mental healing symbol or emotional symbol) and Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen ( distance healing symbol).

Reiki is very helpful in transforming the thinking of an individual. To transform the negative vibes in to positive is the biggest treatment, much more impactful than plain astrology which only deals with telling the problem. Reiki treats the whole person including emotions, mind and gives many beneficial effects like mental peace, security and well being. Reiki is totally a spiritual way of getting rid of the problems and can be practiced by a human being of any religion as Reiki in itself is not following any religious practices.

Satish Tehlan here talks about the Ramnavmi and pays his homage to Lord Rama in this insightful piece. 

आज उस हस्ती का जन्मदिवस है जिनका नाम लेना ही अपने आप में अभिवादन है। महात्मा गाँधी जैसे महापुरुष के आखिरी शब्द भी उन्हें ही पुकार रहे थे। कहा जाता है राम नाम सत्य है और वाकई केवल यही सत्य भी है।  राम हिन्दूओं के लिए एक भगवान ही नहीं बल्कि उनके जीवन का एक अटूट अंग हैं। सुबह उठते हैं तो जय श्री राम,किसी से मिलते हैं तो राम-

राम और किसी अनहोनी या भय पर हे राम। राम इस देश में एक ऐसी महिमाशाली विभूतियाँ रहे हैं जिनका अमिट प्रभाव समूचे भारत के जनमानस पर सदियों से अनवरत चलाआ रहा है। राम सदाचार के प्रतीक हैं, और इन्हें “मर्यादा पुरूषोतम” कहा जाता है।

भगवान श्री राम का जन्मदिन रामनवमी एक पर्व के रूप में मनाया जाता है। चैत्र मास के शुक्ल पक्ष की प्रतिपदा को प्रतिवर्ष नये विक्रम सवंत्सर का प्रारंभ होता है और शुक्ल पक्ष की नवमी को रामजन्मोत्सव जिसे रामनवमी के नाम से जाना जाता है,  मनाया जाता है। रामनवमी, भगवान राम की स्‍मृति को समर्पित है। राम को भगवान विष्णु का अवतार माना जाता है, जो पृथ्वी पर अजेय रावण(मनुष्‍य रूप में असुर राजा) से युद्ध लड़ने के लिए आए। राम राज्‍य (राम का शासन) शांति व समृद्धि की अवधि का पर्यायवाची बन गया है। रामनवमी के दिन, श्रद्धालु बड़ी संख्‍या में उनके जन्‍मोत्‍सव कोमनाने के लिए राम जी की मूर्तियों को पालने में झुलाते हैं।

Gifting Made Easy: Via Your Zodiac: Part II

In the last post we analyzed the first six zodiac signs and what should be gifted according to sun signs. In this one, we continue with gift suggestions for the next set of six sun signs.

LEO 3D

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug22): The rulers of the zodiac, Leos are regal, passionate, dynamic and dramatic. Somewhere deep within Leos there is the need to be pampered and treated like a star. They love gifts that spell lavishness and extravagance. Hair accessories, jewelry, a trip to a casino or cards are good gift options for them.

virgo_

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22): Detail-oriented, focused, perfectionists, Virgos take organization and neatness very seriously. They take a practical approach to most things in life, including gift items! To this end, they can be gifted a dictionary, handbag, a wine set or a social calendar. Whatever the gift, just make sure that the Virgo can use it in their daily life.

artistic-libra

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22): Forever trying to create balance and harmony, those born under this sun sign love elegance, exclusivity and quiet beauty. Some delicate items, like silk scarf or candle sticks are bound to appeal to them. They would not care for the price tag of the gift. However, the artistic and beauty quotient of the gift would have a great impact.

scorpio

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21): Very inquisitive, Scorpios have a penchant for mystery. In fact they are the detectives of the zodiac. They hold power and sensuality very close to their hearts. Binoculars, a spy novel or a book on tantric yoga, dark glasses or clothing or a massage set would be perfect for them as sensual, intriguing gifts appeal to them immensely.

sagittarius

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21): Sporty, impulsive, fun loving and optimistic, Sagittarians love adventure sports. Travel related gifts are the best bet for them. Hot air balloon ride or some equestrian lessons would be just perfect.

capricorn

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19): Ambitious, reliable, old-worldly – these traits define the sun sign quite precisely. A fountain pen, an antique record player or desk, a beautiful watch are good gift options for Capricorns. Do not waste your money buying some newfangled items. Also, Capricorns habitually neglect their creative side, so a craft kit that can tingle a ‘big idea’ can also make for a good gift for them.

Now that you have a better idea of sun signs, Happy Gifting!
