Many would know, that Meditation is a wonderful technique to reduce stress and anxiety in one’s life. There is enough scientific evidence to prove the theory and hence, many prefer to meditate and boost the mystic power of mind. Through meditation their path to self-discovery gets eased. Meditation has been a part of their daily routine and for that reason they do not start the day without meditation for a stipulated set of time.
However not many would not know, that the ancient science of astrology and its elements, can be helpful to enhance the power of meditation. The moon sign, planets and the constellation in a native’s horoscope, form part of these elements and with the use of these elements one can reap the benefits even more.
When we discuss astrological elements, many ask: is this possible? Do the astrological elements enhance the meditation power of an Individual? The answer is yes and let us analyse how is this possible.
The ancient science of astrology holds many insights and methods to analyse through decoding the potential power of a native, through his/her horoscope. One of the method is through the date of birth of a native. Your date of birth, very similar to Numerology, has stored many potentials in you. They just want to get released at the earliest.
As soon as a native is born, the first breath that he or she would take, triggers the release of the potentials stored in them. They would work in tandem with the planetary alignment, especially Sun and Moon, at the time of birth. The individual receives the necessary energy and they reap in the benefit from these two planets.
Hence a special importance is attached to planet Sun and Moon. Since the former represents the Soul and the latter is the mind of an individual. Hence the energy of these two planets are very much important. Also, Moon holds the nakshatra or the constellation along with its Moon sign. Therefore, the position of Planet Sun and Moon is given adequate importance.
Similarly, in astrology there are 12 zodiac signs. Each other these 12 zodiac signs are categorised as: Fire, Earth, Air and Water elements. Aries, Leo and Sagittarius form the elements of Fire. Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn form the category of Earth. Gemini, Libra, Aquarius as Air & Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces as Water elements. In fact, many a time, individuals and their traits are architype to their zodiac signs.
For example, if someone is in deep contemplation, we can see that he/she has a strong presentation of Water sign elements. Similarly, if any one is down to earth, we say that he/she as the Earthly sign elements. Similarly, others can have qualities of fire and air elements. This is very evident but unfortunately not many realise it consciously.
While meditating, our brain releases the frequency which gets connected to the state of higher consciousness. To enhance the ease of connectivity, if the native uses any symbol in physical form or even if able to meditate, keeping the symbol (zodiac sign, symbol of their constellation or moon sign and other elements ) in their mind, the energy is quickly realised and connected to the hire consciousness.
There are other ways too which can be used to enhance the power of meditation. Say if your zodiac sign is Fire element. Then burning a candle might enhance the power to meditate. If Earthy sign, then touching the ground or elements attached to the earth can give you more power to meditate. If a Water sign, then you can place a bowl of water in front of you and then meditate and finally if your sign is of an airy element, then you can meditate in the open air to seek its freshness.
Thus, these are some of the ways through which one can enhance the power of meditation using astrological elements.
Apart from the use of crystal Sriyantra is extensively used in meditation since thousands of years. It is contains all cosmic energy in it. It is abode of all gods and a power house which fills the environment around you with lot of positive energies.
Sriyantra in most advanced phases is used is used to achieve total silence in mind where mental chatter stops completely. This is achieved by tactics of concentration. The devotee shall use the Yantra continuously till the time mind does not achieve the required silence. Mantras are chanted to enhance power of concentration and same is the impact of visualization or imagination of Yantra. The regular worship of Yantra with its its Mantra & Avaran Puja is very effective to attain union with God.
Actually the Avaran Puja of Yantra is simple but created in such a manner that you get compelled to control the mind because slight carelessness from devotee’s side can disturb the whole worshipping ceremony therefore he is forced to control the mind and gradually he gets trained to fall into the habit of controlling the mind automatically thereby achieving the required silence after achieving which the devotee shall be practicing to keep the mind empty without the help of Yantra. In nutshell the continuous practice of Yantra Puja shall make the user more progressive on the path of realization of God.
The next easy techniques to control the mind and to be more progressive can be the power of Mantra. If a person chants Mantra of a deity who is the presiding deity of 5th lord of his horoscope then he attains quick progress in activating his Chakras.
Apart from that one can also chant the Mantra of presiding deity of most powerful planet in the horoscope. By doing that the results of meditation shall be miraculous.
