"The word mantra has two parts: man, which is the root of the Sanskrit word for mind; and tra, which is the root of the word instrument. A mantra is therefore an instrument of the mind, a powerful sound or vibration that you can use to enter a deep state of meditation."

Mantras are 'Linguistic Audio Tools' developed in Vedic langauge, Sanskrit, for altering the vibration and energy of the physical 'Brain' as well as ' Mind' resulting in the alteration of 'Chetna' - the conscious awareness of existence.

Energy Healing Lamp - Awesome Healing Instrument !

"We were introduced to a brass energy healing lamp as an energy healing instrument during  Reiki Trainings at Reiki Healing Foundation. We have made extensive use of  camphor healing lamp  &  found it to be very effective. It is a simple & highly recommended energy healing device for  everyone."
Neerja & Ashutosh Bahuguna :  Reiki Grand Masters -  Energy Healers

Since time immemorial, spiritual practices involved lighting of various types of lamps & candles. Fire & light are synonyms of high energy, often used for healing too.

Here is a lamp that is genie when it comes to healing. This  lamp is widely used in Energy Healing & Feng-Shui Practices. Ceramic, metals and terracotta are the most common materials used for making the lamp. 'Brass Camphor Lamp' can be used as a 'healing' as well as an 'gauging instrument' in Energy Healing.

Components Wise Description

Upper Container: is usually filled with water and some pieces of camphor are immersed in the container. A few drop of Aromatic Essential oils can also be added instead of camphor, for using the lamp as an aroma diffuser. 

Lower Container: is used to place a lamp which heats the base of the upper container. The container is large enough to light the lamp for 5-6 hours.

Support for Wick: is usually there is a spring attached to the container for lamp. I have modified the lamp and placed a plate over the container instead of the spring, to support the wick. Lamp lights up for a longer period and makes the cleaning of the equipment easier. Any thin metal plate with a small hole supporting the wick can be used if this plate gets wears out after prolonged usage.

Wick can be easily made out cotton or coarse cotton threads. Hand-woven coarse cotton threads are easily available in religious stores by name of ‘Kaleva’, ‘Moli’, ‘Naley Ka Dhagaa’ etc).

Oils: Sesame oil is preferred, though any oil can be used for the lamp.

How to use the Lamp
  • Keep healing affirmations & pictures readily available. 
           Guidelines for writing healing affirmations
  • Lamp pacement location :-
    • Preferable placement location south-west area of the house.
    • In case of healing rooms or certain areas in building, it can be placed at the location.
    • Place the lamp in a safe place. 
    • Keep lamp preferably away from curtains, walkways and wood. Instruct family member to be aware and careful with the lamp.
    • Avoid placing lamp in vicinity of unwell individuals to avoid restlessness in case of unpleasant  smell.

  • Wash (and wipe ) all Components, as required required.
  • Place a few pieces of camphor in upper container & fill it with water. Cover it with the lid.
  • Place the lamp in lower container. Place the lower container over written affirmations & photograhps or any other article to used if  used.  Wait for two minutes for  initial soot reduce.  
  • Place the container in between you hands while placing it & program your intention for healing. Programming will direct the healing for psecific purpose. Lighting up the lamp wiithout any programming will heal the location and occupants off the place wherever it is utilised.

Example of programming.
Step 1 - Remove Previous Programming & Any Residual Energies

I invoke the light of the divine within. Light is my guide. Divine energy flows through me and protects me.

De-program & Purify with the power of divine energy
De-program & Purify with the power of divine energy
De-program & Purify with the power of divine energy”

Rotate one hand over the lamp counterclockwise 3, 7, 11 or 21 times for amplifyiing the intention of de-programming & purification.

Step 2 - Program for the Healing

Thank you for healing  ‘[Whatever or Whoever You are Healing]'

Remove all blockages and  negative energies so that  ‘[Accomplished state of Healing as in Afffirmations]’.

Thank You ! Thank You ! Thank You !
It is Done ! It is Done ! It is Done !.Rotate one hand over the lamp clockwise 3, 7, 11 or 21 times for amplifyiing the intention of healing programming.
Note: The phrases and language used is for guidance. Use language and words that appeals most to you.

Reiki practitioners can use symbols for programming.

Step 1: Power symbol for clearing negative energy from healing. Anticlockwise rotation of hand three or seven times for de-programming & purification.

Step 2: Power symbol for programming with intention and rotate hand clockwise three, seven, eleven or 21 times for intensifying intention of healing.

Note : if you want to use Master Symbol in step number 2, follow the complete procedure of the same.
  • Wait for the flame of lamp to extinush on its own. It mayy take upto 8 to 10 hours for the container oil to be consumned.  Do not distueb the lamp when it is  in use.
Energy Indications

- Negative energy encountered during the healing is indicated by soot accumulated at the base of the upperr container.
-  when the energy is conducive and positive no soot is deposited.  The base at times shines as it has been polished at times.
-  Overall progress and effectiveness of healing or measures taken for improving a situation can be monitored by programming the lamp and monitoring the amount of soot dpeosited.
-  Re-light the lamp only after cleaning off the previously deposited soot.

7 Simple Rules for Effective Affirmations

There are a number of affirmations available in text, audio and video formats on the internet. You can choose to use the readily available ones  or  you can make your own custom-suited affirmations, using simple rules. Goal cards for manifestations will also elicit the same. In the process of comprehending the basics, you may realize why and how affirmations work. The affirmations work best when repeated over a number of times by writing, reading, listening or visualizing. Goal cards and audio clips of affirmations are oriented towards easy access and repetition.Energy healing resources may also be used to make suitable catalytic changes towards achievement. Ultimate goal of affirmations is to influence the subconscious mind which hold the ‘controlling beliefs’ that makes one think, act and behave in the way they do.

Actions (karma) for getting to the goal are irreplaceable for achievements. The mind changes  with affirmations ultimately drive one towards thinking & acting in appropriate manner for achievement of any kind; be it healing, relationships management, goal manifestations, abundance, prosperity, success or inner-peace.

Changing self  first, helps in quicker achievements. This is exactly what affirmations achieve.

Affirmation Rule - I
Make  it Emotional. Evoke Strong Emotions. Use words that convey feelings of  Love, Joy, Peace and Gratitude to keep it in highest energy state.

   - I am So ‘Happy’ and ‘Grateful’ NOW that ..
   - I am so elated with
   - I am thrilled, excited  to the core
   - I love my life and I am so excited Now that ..

Note: Every time the affirmation is repeated, immerse yourself in emotional experiences, as if you are in at that moment.

Affirmation Rule - II
Phrase it to convey that the goal has already been achieved. Everything should to be in present tense, as if already accomplished. Practice of including the words  “ ‘NOW’ that”  in the affirmation is directed to make logical mind infer that  the goal has already been accomplished. 'It is done' is also included for the same purpose. Repetitions, visualizations, high focus & auric changes will impress this onto the sub-conscious mind over a period of time.
   - I am well.
   - I am prosperous.
   - I am happy.
   - I am healthy.
   - My relationship with 'xyzee'  is very good and nurturing.

Affirmation Rule - III
Use positive phrases only. The word ‘No’ , ‘Not’ or any other word having negative connotation should ‘not’ figure in the affirmation.

Example - If you want to express that you do not have fever  - “ I am in  perfect health, physically & medically fit,  better & better every moment.” Keep repeating  in your  mind till recovery.

Affirmation Rule - IV
Be precise on what you want. Define everything to the last detail like a computer programming code. If you want to buy a car, define the model, colour, type of engine,  etc, everything which will remove the variable choices and make it precise.

For certain unquantifiable entities, be as precise as you can be. Example - My desires are balanced and aligned to divine will etc.

Affirmation Rule - V
Use an intuitive guidance (what comes to your mind) to decide the time frame when the  goal can be accomplished. This is the only entity that will be in future reference in the affirmation.

Affirmation Rule - VI
Do not mix up too many things at once. Follow one step at a time. If you want to be slimmer, financially stronger and improve your public speaking abilities too, decide your order of priority and work on  them one by one for best results. Trying to cook a mixed soup may not work out as good. If you decide  to work on them together, try using separate affirmations.

Affirmation Rule - VII
Make affirmation mythology aesthetic, creative and  appealing.  You should feel happy when you look at the written affirmation.It should be as attractive and beautiful as you can  make it. If you are recording it for repeated listening, make it melodious, filled with expressive modulation and good background music if possible. If you are using it with a visualization board, make it so appealing that you feel like looking at it again and again.

Use any symbols or representation that bring positive energy to the affirmation. It may be a picture, symbol, a pictographic representation or phrase  drawing  the kind of energy required for achieving the goal of affirmation. Example - A Heart for Love, a Swastika for Money, Picture of meditating monk for peace etc.

Infusing creativity will focus your mind onto the result better & better,  instilling faster refinements in your mental faculty.

Example of a Financial Prosperity Affirmation

“I am so happy, elated, thrilled & grateful NOW that  I possess money worth USD 400 Billion Dollars, own (151 residential & 501 commercial) properties in 44 countries & own 151 successfully profitable businesses in 125 countries by 13 January 2020. Everything is always Better & Better, Everyday.
Thank You ! Thank You!  Thank You!
It is Done ! It is Done ! It is Done !”
Note :
- 'Better & Better’ is a phrase used orginally by Émile Coué which was , later adapted by Jose Silva in Silva Mind Control Method, for defining continuous improvement. It is such a simple phrase which fits into any situation with perfection. Many other self-help systems have also adapted the simple & effective way of conscious suggestion for life improvement.
- ‘Thank You’ in affirmation is infusing more gratitude. 
- 'It is done’ is a phrase for subconscious conditioning that send a message to the mind that the goal has been accomplished. 
- Repeating thrice is for Emphasizing on the aspect.

      Example of Perpetual Money Affirmations By Bob Proctor
      “I am so Happy and Grateful  Now that Money keeps coming to me from Multiple Sources, in Increasing Quantities on a Continuous Basis.”

      ‘I am’ are two powerful words that define you and the divine within you. Dr Wayne Dyer advises everyone to use these words very carefully. These words are mentioned in the Old testament and the name of god ‘I am That I am’ as well as a very powerful vedic mantra for breathing meditation ‘ So Hum’..

      Golden Rule : Be mindful of whatever you think, affirm or say after you say ‘I am’

        Every Day,  in Every Way  'I am' getting 'Better & Better'  
      Eternal Conscious Auto-suggestion by Emile Coue
      Simple  affirmation Combo for a Better & Better now & future
        I am So Happy and Grateful NOW That, 
       Every Day, In Every Way,  'I AM'   Better & Better 

       I am always blissful & one with the creator. I am enough
        I am  Healed, Protected & Guided by All Powers at all times for better & better.  
       Thank You! It is Done. Thank You! It is Done. Thank You! It is Done. 

      Thank You

      What's In a Happy Mind ?

      In the year 1997, I was flying Mi-17 helicopters at an 'Advanced Landing Ground' at Along in Arunachal Pradesh. Indian Air Force helicopters were task with food & essential supply 'Air Dropping' to some remote hilly villages; as well as transportation of people & goods, wherever landing was possible. It was a bad weather day. Crew & passengers were waiting for the clouding to reduce for a possible sortie. Weather trends of the serene lush green valley made us predict that weather would be the same till mid-day. Seated under the make-shift 'Gahzibo' made from a used parachute, I found a book on the center table, while seeking some activity to engage myself. The Book was on 'Yoga'. It was certainly an area of interest. I had seen my father practicing 'Yoagsanas' daily, for the past 20 years. We had been taught Yogasana and Meditation as cadets during our Air Force Training. The book belonged to a passenger from 'Ramakrishna Mission' and was placed on the table to avoid wetting. I sprung out of my chair, looked out for the person and took his permission to read the book, which he smilingly granted.

      Reading a portion of the book from ‘Swami Vivekananda Trust’ that day changed my concept of a 'Happy Mind' forever. I still utilize the concept to consciously improve my meditation, conscious awareness of situations as well as consciousness ascension practices.

      There was an questioned asked -
      What goes on in your mind when you see a beautiful scene which you appreciate & feel happy seeing it?
      What are the thoughts associated with the moment of appreciation causing the emotion of happiness? A sunset for example. 

      When you feel happy looking at a sunset; practically there is no other thought in your mind. The intense focus of the scene being viewed filters and reduces all other  sensory inputs as well as thoughts for brief moments. The mind is so focused that it is filled only with intricacies of the sunset  & consequent appreciation leading to a 'happy feeling'. In fact there are moments where the mind goes blank and there are no thoughts in the mind. It is thus expected that prolonged blank state of mind leads to blissful ecstasy which will be logically akin to deeper and pronged emotion of happiness.
      Meditation practices of the yester years or modern times, all aim at extended blanking of mind for an experiential bliss.  Energetically, cluttered thoughts in mind reduce the vibrational connect and energy flow through the energy body. Reduced thoughts in the ‘Happy Mind’ paves way for an abundant flow of etheric energy (प्राण संचार), rejuvenating etheric body also. The reverse happens when etheric energy is directly worked upon with help of mediation or energy healing. Good flow in the energy body takes care that the mind is not cluttered with thoughts thus ensuring overall well-being. Intuitive guidance and ‘mind power’ also increases in meditative states clearly indicating consciousness ascension. Intuitive guidance has no fixed formats, thought process and synchronicity of events, it can be received in any way, through any medium.

      'Mind Care' & 'Taking care of energy flow in eitheric body' are interconnected. Working on either will result in benifit of both. Either path certainly lays the foundation to overall  wellness.Here is a an awesome clip of an educational animation film 'Spiritual Reality' which gives a brief insight to etheric energy body flow with thoughts and meditation. The clip also serves as an excellent tool for 'Creative Visualization' during energy healing.

      'Gnaural' - Awesome Binaural Beat Genrator - Instant Meditative States

      Sound, especially music produces effective results as an mediating and healing aid. Sounds utilization in mediation and energy healing  has progressed from of ancients civilization bells, drums,  mantras and chants  to modern brain wave entrainment methods which work on waveform engineering to get the desired results.

      For a slightly more elaborate blog on sound healing, click here for an earlier blog at another location .

      Here we will take a step towards binaural beats and a very good tool 'Gnaural' - (which is mentioned in the referred blog) for quick access to binaural beats.

      Here is an extract from Wikipedia explaining Binaural Beats
      " Binaural beats, or binaural tones, are auditory processing artifacts, or apparent sounds, caused by specific physical stimuli. This effect was discovered in 1839 by Heinrich Wilhelm Dove and earned greater public awareness in the late 20th century based on claims coming from the alternative medicine community that binaural beats could help induce relaxation, meditation, creativity and other desirable mental states. The effect on the brainwaves depends on the difference in frequencies of each tone: for example, if 300 Hz was played in one ear and 310 in the other, then the binaural beat would have a frequency of 10 Hz.
      The brain produces a phenomenon resulting in low-frequency pulsations in the amplitude and sound localization of a perceived sound when two tones at slightly different frequencies are presented separately, one to each of a subject's ears, using stereo headphones. A beating tone will be perceived, as if the two tones mixed naturally, out of the brain. The frequencies of the tones must be below 1,000 hertz for the beating to be noticeable. The difference between the two frequencies must be small (less than or equal to 30 Hz) for the effect to occur; otherwise, the two tones will be heard separately, and no beat will be perceived.
      Binaural beats are of interest to neuro-physiologists investigating the sense of hearing.
      Binaural beats reportedly influence the brain in more subtle ways through the entrainment of brainwaves and provide other health benefits such as control over pain. "

       In layman's language, the beats produces because of the minor frequency difference in two stereo channel causes waving listening patterns causing brain working to alter and the mind enters hypnotic states, especially in the lower frequencies of alpha and theta states. Monroe Institute, first experimented with Hypnotic Trances and Out of Body Experiences with binaural beats near 4 hz frequency.  US defense forces personnel were trained at the Monroe Institute for OBE experiences using binaural beats. 

      "In 1978, the U.S. military evaluated TMI and arranged to send officers there for OBE training. In 1983, it sent further officers" - Quoted from Wikipeadia page of  'The Monroe Institute'

      The Monroe Institute (TMI), formed by Robert Monroe for binaural self-development technology, is now a charitable organization with great efforts towards consciousness development.
      Gnaural is an effective experiential tool for experiencing bliss arising out of exposure to binaural beats.
      - It is a frequently downloaded software from the parent website ''  or through search in ''. 
      - Being open source, it is free of cost. 
      - There are no restrictions of use on the software for personal, non-profit or commercial purpose. 
      - The software can also be used in a web based mode.
      - Number of demo presets are available for easy experience.
      - Can produce pink and white noise. 
      - Easiest way to explore - ANDROID APP on Google Store.  Demos come per-loaded with the app.

      Personally I use the sound of rain, sea waves and flowing water from the android app for regular listening as well as background music for guided meditations. Just take a comfortable posture, plug in the earphones, focus into the blank space and enjoy !

      Cosiousness Ascension - Vedic Philosophy & Current Comprehension !

      In the Vedic texts of Upanishads, it is mentioned, When energy (god) divided into  multiple the fist division was into two everlasting supreme forces 'Aditya' (prana) & 'Rayi' (matter) . Sometimes 'Rayi' or  'Chetna' is translated as the total field of consciousness which interacts with the manifest and unmanifest dimension of name, form and idea. Human existence, thoughts, emotions, actions and behavior are associated with three Guna (गुण). Consciousness develops in stages to overcome the three Gunas (Property / Quality/Virtue). These are.

      1. Sattva ( Goodness, Constructive, harmonious)

      2. Rajas(Passion, Active, Occupied, Creative)

      3. Tamas (Darkness, Distuctive, Chaotic)

      The three Gunas apply to all facets of life including, thoughts, ideas, food, habits etc. While Yogis practice ‘Saatvic Behaviour’ for consciousness ascension - the ultimate goal is to be detached from all gunas - both positive and negative.
      All gunas create attachment and thus bind one’s self to the ego. “When one rises above the three gunas that originate in the body; one is freed from birth, old age, disease, and death; and attains enlightenment” (Bhagavad Gita 14.20).
      Rising levels of 'Chetna' result in reduction in dependence on the three 'Gunas' & increase in conscious awareness of all existence.


      Contemporary Comprehension

      1. Jagriti (Akin Conscious State)- It is the logical awareness of actions,thoughts, ideas, emotions and memory. It applies to the logical conscious awareness of everything involving self as well as the external environment.

      2. Swapna (Akin Dream State) - It is a creative or imaginative stage in which the mind is creating things before they come into existence. Dream state is not necessarily in sleep but also in the consciously awakened state where the mind is imagining while co-existing in the physical reality. So, in the swapna state, there is awareness of the visible and also the invisible, the manifest and the un-manifest, the gross world and the subtle world, in harmony with each other. This state may be a consciously meditative state also.

      3. Nidra (Akin Sleep State) - Shushupti -Sleep  state used for both mental and physical rest which results in rejuvenation of energy “Prana”. It may also be a meditative state in which the physical senses are not giving as much input to the mind as the subtle conscious awareness. It is certainly a energy revitalisation state in any case.

      4. Turiya (Akin Subconscious) - It means the fourth state which is working in the backstage  of mind, for the development of the first three stages. It is referred to as atyanta-shunyata (absolute emptiness). This is also a stage of consciousness ascension called Transcendental Consciousness.

      Note: ॐ chant, also called the primordial vibrations, is all by itself cable of consciousnesses ascendence. Relation of ‘OM’ sound to the stages of consciousness, cosmic energies and physical body vibrations.The syllable Om () - also referred to as the sound of primordial-vibrations)  widely used for meditation is divided into Three and a half stages. Correlation to various aspects is :-

      AUM ॐ Correlation with Chetna, Guna, Energy and Altered Body Vibrations with Mantra Chant

      5. ‘Turiyatita Chetana’ by Sustained Turiya Consciousness(Cosmic Consciousness Realisation) -  It is the beginning of awareness expansion resulting in conscious realisation that there is vast universe beyond self which is connected to us. The expansion of consciousness beyond our physical world begins at this stage.

      6. ‘Bhagavat Chetana’(God Consciousness) - Conscious realization of the supreme energy and forces governing the manifested existence.

       7. Brahmi Chetana (Creator or Unity Consciousness) - One with all vibrations of the cosmos -  ‘ Aham Brahmasmi’.  This is the stage dawns the realization and capability of 'Co-Creator'.
