Special Days for Meditation — January 2017
2016 was a tough year for humanity. Other than the usual commotions and struggles, we also witnessed an increase in war and terrorist activity at the global level and churnings at the individual level. Many events of the previous year naturally continue into the New Year but as individuals it is an opportunity for us to consciously strengthen our alignment with positivity, peace and harmony.
The Pralaya processes also continue. When we soldier on with our inner cleansing and make progress, we can rise above the chaos. The path is tough and challenging definitely as the goal is to be vibrating at the level of Satya Yuga. But it is possible to achieve this. There is a lot of assistance available from the Divine Plane to help each individual. We automatically are connected to it when we make efforts to transform.
The New Year brings renewed hope. January has many energies providing new opportunities and a fresh start. Let us consciously strengthen our goals and ambitions, and work on them silently.
This month is about strengthening our goals, balancing our life and determining to go with the flow. These are very important aspects. Those that resist this will find life overwhelming ahead. Also, at all available opportunities let us pray for humanity, for more love and peace to manifest and for us to enter the Light Age sooner.
The Shunya Masa Rishis will be present till Sankranti and they are helping and guiding humanity in wonderful ways. They are also anchoring new energies that will assist us throughout the year.
There will be many shifts at the time of Sankranti. The energies will be intense and purposeful. For those of us who consciously make efforts, the energies help us to connect and relate to Light better, strengthen our inner capabilities and grow Spiritually.
This should be an interesting year with many important developments taking place in both the individual’s life and at the global level.
At the individual level, the focus will be on discovering and understanding oneself with more intensity. Our inner strengths and skills surface and as well as our emotions and attitude. It is the phase where we will be coerced towards taking clearer stands and making corresponding decisions. The new energies will push us further towards Truth and Light.
In 2016, there have been various external factors influencing us which have been difficult and tough. Such influences will continue. The way to deal with them is accepting it, going with the flow and to use Light to deal with them. The more we practice this, we will be able to deal and handle these things better.
Due to all these external influences, we will also be moving towards living in the present. The more we live in the past or in the anticipation of the future, we will be at unease. The best way forward will be dealing with the issues in front of us with the spiritual principles and with the help of Light. This also enables us to cleanse the energies of the past which is very important going forward.
The Rishis also request us to start making consciously efforts towards internalizing. Let us stop wasting our energies on quarrels and fights but instead focus on our own growth and transformation.
All help and assistance will be available to humanity from the Divine. It is completely up to us to make use of the help and support. We have to outgrow the attitude that a special grace will descend from the Divine and remove all our problems. This is the time for us to make efforts, consciously work on improving and transform. The love and energies from the Divine hasten and multiply our efforts.
2017 can be a wonderful year for us if we make the right choices and work hard. Let us be simple, positive and strengthen our purity and Love. All will fall in place.
The Personalities of 2017
Each Year, a Personality in charge of the Time period is invoked by the Rishis. This Personality is the Kala Purusha, an amsha of MahaVishnu. The Personality of 2016 contained both the male and female energies within.
This year, there are two personalities who have been invoked – a 2017 Purusha and a 2017 Shakti. This was the initiative of the Shunya Masa Rishis and they have descended to our Earth to help bring a balance.
We can connect to these Personalities throughout the entire year. Any time, before beginning a new project, executing something significant, or making Sankalpas, we can link up and pray to these Personalities and seek their guidance and Blessings. We mentally connect to them and imagine light-Blue Light coming from the 2017 Purusha and light-Purple Light coming from the 2017 Shakti and absorb the energies.
These two personalities have descended with a lot of knowledge, energies and Light. They will be assisting the Rishis in their work. Let us make use of these opportunities and equip ourselves to the best we can.
Messages and Advice from the Rishis
The phases of Pralaya are becoming tougher and tougher. The “Spiritual Way” is the only way to handle them. Pralaya comes to teach us that the old ways won’t bring satisfactory results. The solutions and path emerges when we begin adopting Love and the value system.
The Rishis mention that whenever we have any issue, let us pause, then analyse and identify, and then breathe and accept. Then we channel our efforts to solve it as much as possible. Still if no solution arrives, we go with the flow of life. This will helps us to deal with all issues in the best way possible, bring down our anxiety and tensions, and cope up.
The Deep-Breathing is very important. When we don’t breathe, we lock our emotions and anxiety within and over time they become a strong internal resistance. Any anxiety, worry or difficulty, we deep breathe. Please take this aspect seriously and implement. It has its impact in so many aspects of our life. If we are aware, we can also use Golden Light along with our breathing which is more efficient.
The Pralaya processes bring out the inner darkness. This year, these process continue and intensify. They bring darkness to the surface and the hidden secrets into the open. Such processes lead to many sudden developments and new changes occurring. Let us be aware of these and accommodate them. Resistance to change will not help. We have to learn to go with the flow.
Other than the surfacing of the darkness, Pralaya also brings a lot of Light, help and hope. The churning processes help us to move from the old patterns and ways of life to the Higher ways. Such opportunities are always be present. The more we are able to accept the changes and move out of our rigidity and comfort zone, the faster we can make progress. Let us be open and in a state of acceptance.
The violence, wars and natural disasters; they all continue. Our prayers help in such situations. Whenever possible, let us always send out a prayer for Unity, Peace, Equality and Dharma. Collective prayers and collective efforts have a major role and they bring miraculous results. Let us also send an abundant amount of love to Mother Earth and to the Humanity.
Let us connect to our Soul more often and take its assistance. We receive a lot of help and assistance including solutions for the problems. Let us also fill ourselves with Light always and tune to its vibrations and value system.
And for all this to manifest, sincere efforts are required by each of us. There is no substitute for our efforts. Along with our efforts, our faith and assistance of Light will take us in the right direction.
