Karma, Destiny, and the Most Difficult Parts of Living.
Denial is not just a river in Egypt.
Astrology has fascinated me since I was a child. My mother was an astrologer. I would sit and watch her piecing together numbers like a jigsaw puzzle then translating them into lovely symbols that she meticulously placed in drawing of a round circle divided into twelve segments (called "houses")—like a pie. "Hmmm," she would sometimes say, or mutter, "Oh my," or "Well, that's interesting." She was like a surgeon probing into the secret spaces of a body, looking for clues and answers.
The four ancient yoga pathways to spiritual union taught in the Bhagavad Gita are built on the profound recognition, made by yoga masters thousands of years ago, that human beings have four faculties through which they can learn to purify the heart, discipline the mind, restrain the senses, and unite with the Self within: the intellect, love, psychic control, and work. Swami Vivekananda describes the four yogas as such:
“Each soul is potentially divine, and the goal of yoga is
to manifest this Divinity within
by controlling nature, external and internal.

An Elixir is a vibrational remedy. Crystals and stones vibrate at specific frequencies, by placing a crystal in a glass/bowl of water, the water takes on and holds the essence of the crystal or stone. You may use elixirs as a salve by mixing them with an oil, add a few drops to your bath, or in most cases, they can be taken internally.
Start with a clean glass jar or glass bowl with no patterns, designs, or etchings on it. Do not use plastic. Fill the glass with distilled water, not mineral water. Most tap water is too polluted or full of minerals.
The crystal or stone you will be using can be natural, cut and polished, or tumbled.
So that you minimize any danger of the water also absorbing your personal energy, use tongs, or a spoon to place the crystal/stone into the water. Leave it there for a minimum of 4 hours. There is no maximum time.
There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy. Shakespeare, Hamlet, act 1, scene 5
When William Shakespeare wrote those intriguing words, he probably had no idea that modern humans would try to prove them. Interest in the supernatural and paranormal has rushed into popularity since the turn of the 20th century like ants to a kitchen full of honey. Anything that hints at what could be "behind the veil," or is at all connected with the power of the mind is gobbled up with relish even by the most conservative individuals. Granted it may be gobbled up in order to condemn, but there is no denying how powerful a force the supernatural and paranormal, collectively called "metaphysics," has become.
MetaStudies Institute: Music by Allen Burns
Allen Burns has a magical connection to spirituality that radiates through his music and touches your soul. His music transcends the Earthly plane and takes you to incredible heights. Each CD is infused with an energy source called Re Hu Tek that originates from ancient Egypt.
There is nothing like Allen's music in the world. To quote so many who listen to his CDs/MP3s, "He is amazing."
The things that hold us back spiritually are all within ourselves. All negative attitudes spell our own undoing because they draw the mind away from God and affirm a separate reality. Only when you’ve overcome the carping, doubting spirit can you uplift your mind in attunement with the Divine.
