Guided meditations with planets and stars, as remedies to transits and progressions
There are numerous remedies given in the Vedic Scriptures to enable us deal with the vicissitudes of Life. These range from homas and yagnas, to japa, mantra, ratna and the different forms of Yoga (Gnana Yoga, Karma Yoga and Bhakti Yoga in particular).
Drawing inspiration from different spiritual traditions, here are some meditations to help you find strength and solace in troubled times. Some are designed for specific transits and progressions, while others are for general all-round use.
Make time to be in solitude, and to find yourself again.
3 guided meditations for times when Mercury turns retrograde - to prepare, to deal with and then to clean up any residue left behind. For details about this transit, head to my blog post by the same title: Mercury Retrograde
Here is a meditation that I learnt from legendary breatharian, Elitom El-Amin. It is known as the Microcosmic orbit, and helps immensely with energy cultivation. It is similar to the Vipassana technique that asks us to become aware of sensations in the body, but follows a smaller orbit from the navel downwards to the genital area and the base of the spine, then up the back along the center line to the crown of the head, then over the head and down the front of the body back to the starting point, making a full circle. It passes through each Chakra, and thereby addresses all the planets that rule each energy center. I have found that meditations such as these that move energy around the body are better suited for a Pranic lifestyle. See my blog post for more details on this.
