Exorcism Outside of Christianity

Today, as I post this I am sad to say that I was recently attacked by a member of the American Paranormal Community for being a Hindu. I was told by a so-called Christian exorcist, who by my calculation was untrained but egotistical nonetheless, that I was worshiping demons. The truth is that in this past year I have encountered several so-called “Christian” exorcists who have had no real training, who believe that they are somehow spiritually superior for their faith. I am sharing this today to remind everyone that exorcism is not exclusive to Christianity and that Hinduism is far older. In this instance the “demons” were banished to a location. They were “sent” somewhere to be imprisoned. The exorcist is a humble man with no visions or grandeur or spiritual superiority and yet … not one but several victims were “exorcised” by this man. Isn’t it Jesus who once said, “Judge not lest ye be judged?”

Mercury Retrograde? Ganesha to the Rescue!

Posted in How to, Mercury Retrograde, Mystic Journey Bookstore, Psychic Readings, Uncategorized with tags , , , on January 7, 2016 by Marie Bargas

My apologies for posting this so late, but like many of you this current Mercury Retrograde came for me early during it’s “shadow phase” and I dropped my laptop and utterly destroyed my hard drive!  All over the world folks like me are experiencing challenges associated with the planetary ruler of communication, travel, electronics, contracts, etc …  This thrice yearly occurrence is enough to have garnered the attention of the world now that the internet and the noticeable stops and starts over this hectic time have made it more believable for a single planetary change of orbit to wreak havoc on a global scale.

While many popular remedies for the Mercury Retrograde prescribe a combination of burning a Mercury Retrograde or Reversal Candle with a specially formulated Mercury Retrograde Oil;  I have found that burning a Ganesha2candle and doing a simple mantra to the Hindu deity Ganesha (the Remover of Obstacles) is equally, if not more effective. The difference is that typical Mercury Retrograde candles and oils are designed to counter act all the effects of the Mercury Retrograde, while burning a candle to the “Remover of Obstacles” removes the negative effects of troublesome mishaps while allowing the positive effects of removing, releasing and banishing to continue unabated.

 

Ganesha3Here at Mystic Journey Bookstore our large community of yogis, yoginis and mystics resonate comfortably with this beloved Elephant God whose reputation for removing obstacles begins with the utterance of his divine mantras to open any spiritual endeavor that requires a connection to the divine.  Traditionally his mantra is recited at least 108 times on a string of prayer beads or malas that are available in a selections of seeds, wooden beads and stones. During the Mercury Retrograde which lasts from January 5th, 2016 through January 25th, 2016 we expect to have to restock our colorful inventory of Ganesha candles several times.

The Process:

  • Anoint your chosen Ganesha candle with your favorite Mercury Retrograde or Ganesha Oil or put a few drops of coconut oil and a sprinkling of brown sugar in the candle since Ganesha enjoys coconuts and sweets.
  • Recite the following mantra  108 times after lighting the candle.

AUM VAHKRAH TOON DAH YAH HUM.

 I have found that this particular mantra is short but very effective. It is best to do the mantra every day at the same time, but I always wear a wrist mala so that I can say it whenever I feel the need which lately has been several times a day.
