Why do we blow the conch

When the conch is blown, the primordial sound of Om emanates. Om is an auspicious sound that was chanted by the Lord before creating the world. It represents the world and the Truth behind it.

As the story goes, the demon Shankhaasura defeated devas, the Vedas and went to the bottom of the ocean. The devas appealed to Lord Vishnu for help. He incarnated as Matsya Avataara – the “fish incarnation” and killed Shankhaasura. The Lord blew the conch-shaped bone of his ear and head. The Om sound emanated, from which emerged the Vedas.

All knowledge enshrined in the Vedas is an elaboration of Om. The conch therefore is known as shankha after Shankaasua. The conch blown by the Lord is called Paanchajanya. He carries it at all times in one of His four hands.

It represents dharma or righteousness that is one of the four goals (purushaarthas) of life. The sound of the conch is thus also the victory call of good over evil.

Another well-known purpose of blowing the conch and the instruments, known traditionally to produce auspicious sounds is to drown or mask negative comments or noises that may disturb or upset the atmosphere or the minds of worshippers.

Ancient India lived in her villages. Each village was presided over by a primary temple and several small ones. During the aarati performed after all-important poojas and on sacred occasions, the conch used to be blown. Since villages were generally small, the sound of the conch would be heard all over the village. People who could not make it to the temple were reminded to stop whatever they were doing, at least for a few seconds, and mentally bow to the Lord. The conch sound served to briefly elevate people’s minds to a prayerful attitude even in the middle of their busy daily routine.

The conch is placed at the altar in temples and homes next to the Lord as a symbol of Naada Brahma (Truth), the Vedas, Om, dharma, victory and auspiciousness. It is often used to offer devotees thirtha (sanctified water) to raise their minds to the highest Truth. It is worshipped with the following verse.

HOW TO DEFEND YOURSELF AGAINST ASTRAL ENERGIES

HOW TO DEFEND YOURSELF AGAINST ASTRAL ENERGIES

I have been inundated lately with reported cases of demonic attacks, psychic vampirism, hallucinations, etc. As a holistic life coach, I have been working with people to explain what is happening and why, as well as what we can do about it. This video touches on who and what is attacking, the reasons why you or your loved one is being targeted, and what you can do.

The case study that inspired me to do this video is discussed at the end. Here is the outline for the show topics:

WHO AND WHAT IS ATTACKING

  • Astral entities or demons- there is a hierarchy of entities beginning with an artificial intelligence that has many extraterrestrial entities under its control. It is a conglomerate of energy vampires/black goo
  • Can attack through your mental body
  • Possessing others even for a conversation where they can steal your energy
  • Sexual
  • Extraterrestrials that are still abducting people for study and implanting

REASONS WHY YOU ARE BEING TARGETED

  • Lower vibration. From society. programming –television, trauma- 9 out of 10 children have been abused, whether sexual, physical, emotional. Traumas can cause a shattering of soul splinters outside of the body
  • They want your body
  • They want your energy

WHAT YOU CAN DO

  • Raise your vibration
  • Contract revocations
  • Grounding– spending time in nature
  • Smudging
  • Sea Salt, (room, house) baths
  • Selenite/other crystals
  • Ozone/High ph water, fluoride free
  • Turn off tv/unplug
  • Remember who you are. You are powerful, and may not think that because your memory has been wiped.

 

What are Salt Lamps?

I have several Himalayan Salt Lamps at my house and I’ve talked before about how I use them to help purify indoor air and for their soothing red glow.

We use these lamps so often that I figured they deserved their own post.

What are Salt Lamps?

Salt lamps are simply large pieces of pure Himalayan Salt with a small bulb inside. They can be solid pieces of salt (like this one) or decorative baskets filled with large crystals of salt (like these).

It is important to make sure that the lamp is from a pure Himalayan Crystal source and not a cheap imitation made from rock salt.

Himalayan salt lamps are made from pure, food grade, himalayan salt crystals and can even be powdered to use as salt in recipes if needed.

The importance of negative ions…

Salt lamps are natural negative ion generators. At any given time, there are both positive and negative ions in the air. As a flashback to freshman science:

“An ion is an atom or molecule in which the total number of electrons is not equal to the total number of protons, giving the atom a net positive or negative electrical charge.”

Negative ions occur more often in nature and they are often created by things like lightening storms, sunlight, waterfalls, and ocean waves. This is one of the reasons people often report feeling renewed or refreshed after a storm or at the beach.

Positive ions are often created by electronic devices like computers, TVs, microwaves, and even vacuum cleaners and can often exacerbate problems like allergies, stress and sleep trouble. Negative ions can neutralize positive ions (they bond together) and help cleanse the air.

The unique combination of salt and a light source in salt lamps are what cause the negative ions. Salt is hygroscopic, meaning that it attracts water to its surface and this water evaporates quickly due to the small amount of heat from the light source (this is also why salt lamps tend to sweat and appear wet in humid climates). The negative ions are generated during the evaporation process.

Since things like airborne mold, bacteria, and allergens often carry a positive charge, they can be neutralized by negative ions.

WebMD explains some of the benefits of negative ions in the air:

Generally speaking, negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain; resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy,” says Pierce J. Howard, PhD, author of The Owners Manual for the Brain: Everyday Applications from Mind Brain Research and director of research at the Center for Applied Cognitive Sciences in Charlotte, N.C.

“They also may protect against germs in the air, resulting in decreased irritation due to inhaling various particles that make you sneeze, cough, or have a throat irritation.”

And for a whopping one in three of us who are sensitive to their effects, negative ions can make us feel like we are walking on air. You are one of them if you feel instantly refreshed the moment you open a window and breathe in fresh, humid air.

Places like waterfalls and beaches where negative ions are naturally produced can have a negative ion concentration of up to 10,000 negative ions per cubic centimeter whereas busy cities can have negative ion levels as low as 100 ions per cubic centimeter.

What we use…

It is possible to buy machines that create negative ions, but I’ve found that salt lamps are a less expensive and very effective alternative.

I use salt lamps often in our home, and especially in winter months when it isn’t possible to have the windows open or to spend as much time outside. We now have a solid salt lamp or a basket lamp in each room of our home and I love them for their ambient glow and their negative ions.
