Special Days for Meditation — February 2017
This is a month of many changes — situations, events, climate and even personal circumstances. Many years of Pralaya have uncovered and continue to throw up various suppressed aspects. Because of this, there prevails a lot of anger and confusion. Other than the effects of Pralaya, the karmas of individuals and nations are also manifesting, further intensifying the turmoil.
This month brings relief to a few of these and new opportunities open up for each individual. The Rishis also mention that whenever we are under stress or having a difficult phase, we can take the help of the 2017 Purusha and Shakti. Connect to them and pray. Some issues may take time to get resolved but be patient and have faith. The Divine always brings about solutions.
There are two eclipses this month and they are important. Try to meditate during both of them and be as open as possible. The energies will surely charge each individual and equip us nicely. The Solar Eclipse is especially important due to the level of its influence on humanity. Many rare and new energies will also be released during the eclipses.
On Feb 1st, the Rishis will initiate a new project where there will be exchange of energies between Andromeda Galaxy and our Milky Way Galaxy. This process will continue till the 27th of February. The effects of these energies will slowly be allowed to manifest from the Equinox in March.
The Shunya Masa Rishis have anchored and stored many special energies on the Earth to assist the Rishis in their work. Some of these energies will be released and spread across the Earth on the 1st of Feb.
February favours Meditation and deep contemplation. Make use of the opportunities to charge yourself spiritually.
