4 Spiritual Products which don’t do what you think..

“Spiritual” is big business these days. Make sure that – before spending your hard-earned money – you know what you’re buying. Remember, mindfulness is free and so is aspiring to become a better person. But, we live in a material world, and Hey! Who doesn’t like to shop?? So, here are 4 common spiritual products which don’t do what people think they do. 

Spiritual Products #1 – Home Cleansing Sage Sticks

Many consider ritualistically burning sage in their home to be cleansing. They believe that it absorbs conflicts, anger, and evil. Many walk around with burning sage after moving into a new house or when experiencing “bad” situations in their life. were Some people simply do a seasonal “cleanse” now and then.

Now, the burning of herbs in this sense has been around for thousands of years. But, it doesn’t ward off spirits or clean a space’s chi or energy. For thousands of years, our ancestors used the smoke from different herbs, for their health benefits. Sage, along with rosemary, coconut husks and other natural smoky materials naturally have anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, and anti-oxidant properties. They’ve long helped protect people from harmful illnesses (or “evils”). Our ancestors knew that using this smoke in their homes would keep them healthier and happier. That’s why they used it. Nothing to do with “energy” or the metaphysical.

Spiritual Products #2 – Himalayan Salt Lamps

These lamps are popular in crystal and spiritual shops. Himalayan Salt Lamps are seen to have calming effects and good for your overall health. People believe they help improve moods, reduce negative influences from electricity, improve sleep and increase their energy levels. They’re also pretty to look at. These lamps are extremely popular these days. Households around the world now have one.

Before we discuss how salt lamps effect our health, let’s talk about the ocean. Many people love living near the ocean. As an Australian myself, I understand the draw of the deep blue green just as well as the other 80+% of Australians living on or near the coast. But, have you ever stopped to think about how the constant sea breeze affects your health? The constant inflow of salt particles, over time, causes similar health problems to that of a highly salty diet. In the long term, this barrage of sodium weakens people’s kidneys and lungs, causing a myriad of health issues. Additionally, because it’s air born, the salt particles dry out the skin and cause people to show accelerated signs of aging and lose their skin’s natural elasticity at a relatively young age.

Salt lamps also release salt, into the air with similar long-term effects. In the short term, chemicals present in addition to the salt particles have euphoric qualities. Basically meaning that people get a little micro-high from these lamps, which is why they’re enjoying all of that deep sleep.

Spiritual Products #3 – Tibetan Prayer Flags

These colorful square pieces of cloth are frequently considered as good luck items for any house, with powerful prayers and symbols written on each. People believe that the prayers and mandalas create positive energy for the surrounding area as the blow in the wind.

It’s not entirely far from the truth. Tibetan prayer flags are used for protection from evil entities and misfortune. Each of the prayers have a meaning and power too. However, without a monks blessing, they’re useless. The most powerful thing in the whole world is the mind. So, the power of any blessings, spells or prayers depends entirely on the person performing the ritual. Real Tibetan flags, when used, are accompanied by a blessing ceremony performed by monks with years of practice cultivating the powers and focus of the mind. It’s their mind’s power which creates the effectiveness of the flags’ protection. So, although authentic Tibetan flags can be powerful objects, without the right mind or prayer, they’re not much more than just pieces of cloth.

Spiritual Products – Feng Shui Water Features

Traditional Chinese Feng Shui associates Water with money. This is why they consider it good “chi” to have flowing water within a house. They believe it represents the flowing of money into a person’s life. It’s also commonly said that flowing water pools positive or auspicious chi energy. In turn, allowing wealth and abundance to flow into your life with fresh opportunities.

But, like we explain in our new book “Your Home Reveals Everything About You”, this is because of antiquated advice used over 2,000 years ago. In the past when we all mostly farmers, having water on your property meant you were able to grow crops and feed animals. How much water you had literally determined your wealth. That’s why it was seen as good luck or beneficial to have water on your property.

The problem is that we don’t grow our own crops anymore (well, most of us don’t). Also, water is pumped directly into our homes without needing to dig it up or carry it. It’s already good luck just be to alive in a time of such wonderful convenience if you think about it. So the advice is outdated. But more importantly, it’s detrimental to our health and relationships. 

Think about it. When there is an unnatural body of water, bacteria and other organisms start to collect and thrive. As the water naturally evaporates slowly into the atmosphere, these pollutants spread into the surrounding atmosphere. If placed in your home, you breathe in these impurities, in turn affecting your immune system. Basically, having a water feature will make you sick more often, and moody, and result in more frequent arguments in the house.

Aim of the story

Be careful when buying “spiritual” products. Remember, everything in this world has a reason. But sometimes the reason is pure capitalism. Just think before buying things and always look for logic and reason when purchasing new age or spiritual products.

Magic $50,000  Key Ring

Magic $50,000 Key Ring

Here in Thailand, there are lots of people who believe in the power of magical items and amulets. In fact, most Thai people wear a special necklace with a Buddha figurine or another holy sculpture on a key ring, believing that it will protect them. Or help them make more money. Or have power over others.

Today we’re going to share a very special little collection of these amulets with you. Aur’s brother has been collecting these amulets and magical tokens for over 20 years and believes 100% that they have absolutely changed his life. In this words, before he owned this particular collection he had only 20 cents in this bank account. Now he owns two restaurants, his own house, a loving wife, and feels fulfilled.

Although he said that he wouldn’t sell these for any price because (he feels they have given him everything he ever wanted in life), he did  conservatively value the collection at around $50,000 USD. An even greater relative sum in a nation where it would take the average person four years to earn that amount of money.

We asked him to tell us briefly about each of the many sculptures he keeps with him at all times on a key ring. Fortunately for us he approved and was nice enough to share a little background on each item.

  1. Hanuman

20160605_111816

Hanuman is a Hindu deity who embodies great courage , power and selfless service. This statue is said to help in negotiations  and with fighting. With this amulet you’re said to be able to always have the confidence and influence over others  and come out on top in negotiations. The little carved statue is over 200 years old and is the first item on the key ring.

  1. Owl sculpture. 300+ years old.

This sculpture helps with a person’s sense of direction and ensures they’ll always find their way home. no matter where they are. I could definitely see the value in that as a traveler.

  1. Elephant token – Over 300 years old.

Picture3

It’s main purpose is to protect you from wild animals. It’s said that whoever has this with them will be safe from wild animals whilst in the jungle.

  1. Rabbit. 300+ years old.

Picture7

The rabbit, just like Western culture, is seen as a good luck symbol. I guess similar to how some like to carry around a rabbit’s foot on their key ring.

  1. Penis.

Picture5

A little odd to have on a key ring but this little token is made from black coral and is said to help you make money. There are inscriptions down the side of it and inside is a small sheet of gold.

  1. Love birds

The love birds are made from ivory. They are said to help you get anything you want from another person. It’s especially difficult to find this one. In the past when they wanted to make one, they would have to put it into a coffin with a dead body. If and only if nine crows then came to the coffin would the sculpture be acknowledged as real.

7. Goat

Picture1

The goat is also more than  100 years old. It’s used to help the user sell more products. This must be working as the owner’s restaurants to attract customers from all over.

8. Medicine ball

Picture6

This herbal medicine ball was first chewed and then spat out by a monk. It’s seen as one of the most powerful items on the key chain and apparently helps to ward off illnesses.

Guardian angels are real, but not what you think

Guardian angels are real, but not what you think

Guardian angels are spirits that help you in your daily life. Various religions and philosophies describe angels in different ways. Many times when thinking of a guardian angel, the picture of a winged gorgeous model in a flowing garment may come to mind. But does this representation make sense?

If a spirit is not bound by the physical reality, then why would a being like a guardian angel need to manifest wings? It could simply float and move around at will with no flapping necessary. Secondly, why would the angel decide to help us in the first place? Why me specifically? Why you?

This is what first spurred a conversation with Aur, a life mentor to many and renowned expert in the metaphysical realms. Aur’s upbringing placed her in the midst of monks, healers, and holistic life counsellors from a very young age. In these circles; ghosts, guardian angels, demons or even dragons were commonplace conversation and simply a part of nature. Albeit not one we are able to see with the limitations of our physical senses.

Aur explains that spirits or ghosts were simply people, just without the fleshy body. This means that what we would call our “guardian angels” were simply people too (just living in a frequency our eyes and other physical senses don’t pick up).  But why again would they choose to help us?

Take a look at the video conversation: https://youtu.be/Ux6iZzFa8BY

Multi-life relationships

This comes back to the idea of reincarnation, constant and continual rebirth until a point of perfection or “enlightenment” when birth is no longer necessary. In Buddhism it’s believed that to even become the level of a human being, one must be born into more than a billion lives (I’m paraphrasing, but it was a huge number). In that time we’ve done both good and bad. We’ve made friends, and enemies over all of those lives. These relationships continue today.

Our guardian angels are people (beings/souls) we have helped in the past or done something good for in a previous life. Our relationship with them may have been that of a father, a mother, a daughter, a son, a close friend, lover or otherwise. We’re connected to them, and they’re happy to help us in this life because of our good deeds towards them in the past (an example of good karma returning).

So how are they able to help you in your life? In more ways than you may think. Aur’s students often brag about always getting the best parking spots right at the front door, even when it’s in the center of bustling Bangkok, just because they asked their guardian angels to help. Or they asked a business conversation to go favorably, and people’s interactions with them noticeably change from the normal exchanges. You can virtually ask anything you would like from your guardian angel, including to know your own future.

BUT! Is it real or imagined?

Many people may think that they can ask their guardian angels for a parking spot or to know their own future. They may even get a clear answer and a great spot 60% of the time. However, if it is truly your angel helping you keep in mind that the results have to be accurate 100% of the time. Otherwise you’re likely simply talking to yourself. So make sure the answers or guidance you get isn’t just your imagination.

It takes a lot of power for a non-physical form to have influence on this world. Asking your angels for too much may mean they don’t have enough energy in this world to do so. One way in which to strengthen your guardian angel is to share whatever good karma comes from your actions with them. For example, if you spend each morning in mediation for 15 minutes, make a prayer at the end saying that you will share any good karma that comes from the mediation with your guardian angel. Or if you do something good for another person, you may also share this. There are certain laws which transcend both worlds and are at force in both. One is the mind, another is karma. Both of these is able to help strengthen your own guardian angel.

So first of all know that you’re are never alone and that there’s always someone with you that loves you. Whether you can see them or not. Then start sharing some of your good karma with your special companion and try to keep a focused and neutral mind (we’ll talk more about that later) to build up any possible positive influence they can have in your life. Lastly, test this for yourself. Try to make clear requests of your guardian angel to help you in your everyday life and see what happens. Remember, if you’ve truly been able to connect with them,  the answers will always be accurate.
