Astrology and the Western World

Western world is waking up to the concept of using Astrology to improve their lives. It is perceived to be more materialistic than the Eastern world. People in the advanced economies of the world give more importance to the tangible things in life rather than the intangible ones. Eastern countries like India and China, on the other hand, give more importance to intangible things in life like love, affection, emotions etc. This difference is clearly evident if we see the lifestyle of a Western or an Eastern person. For example, for an average Indian, life is not imaginable without the concept of God. The Western countries, on the other hand, are full of Atheists and Agnostics. The Western mind has always been inquisitive and believes only on exact sciences. For them, a theory is not acceptable unless proved by scientific experiments. Well, that is quite normal. But still there are a few things which cannot be proved by scientific experiments. There is a point after which “science” has to give way, and the concept of “God” takes over. In spite of advancements in science, the scientists still are not able to give life to a person who is dead. They also cannot explain a simple thing like electricity. There are many mysteries for which there are no scientific explanations available. But they do exist. So, it is not entirely possible to always rely on science. Therefore, issues on divine intervention cannot be ruled out. On the other hand, the eastern philosophy relies too much on the esoteric phenomena. This creates a clash with the western phenomenon. There has to be a combination of the eastern and western philosophies so that a proper balance is maintained. The good news is that we are at a time when Eastern world is beginning to accept the western philosophy and vice versa. Eastern world is trying to have a more materialistic viewpoint on life and the western world is beginning to open up to the possibility of using once esoteric phenomena such as Yoga and Meditation.

Of late, astrology is one of the disciplines which have caught the imagination of the western countries. Because of their fast-paced and sometimes unhealthy lifestyles, the people from the advanced countries tend to fall prey to fatigue and depression more often. There are many cases of teenage pregnancies, and drug abuse. These factors have made life quite insecure in these countries. So, a proven discipline like Astrology is gaining popularity there. Astrology promises to provide its users with information about one’s future. Astrologers can also offer remedial measures to any fault in life due to planetary motions. The zodiac sign of an individual can say a lot about him or her. This allows men and women to understand the opposite sex better.

Reading and analyzing the daily horoscopes have become a regular activity for many westerners now-a-days. They are fascinated by the impact of astrology on one’s daily life. For them, it is amazing to know that our lives can be influenced by the motion of planets millions of miles away. Astrology can be effectively used to enhance key areas of one’s life like love, money, career etc. Astrology may be used to resolve problems concerning money, bad luck, love, or any other large or small grievances. Thousands of successful users will vouch for the effectiveness of Astrology in problem solving.

Some things that you need to be aware

The Dreams Within

We have two types of minds which are the conscious (physical) and the subconscious mind that takes over the physical mind when it goes to sleep. So the one who is responsible for creating dreams into our minds is nothing but the subconscious mind.

It's capability is far beyond the reality where it can create any event, scenario or anything else that it wishes to occur. This is the process on how the subconscious mind communicates with the physical mind. It's the reason why you are able to experience weird and unrealistic dreams.

To explain further on how it works - the subconscious mind simply creates anything from objects, events to complicated scenarios and then project them into your astral dimensional thought. Your conscious mind will going to encounter those scenarios and probably, you'll be able to remember some of your experiences on your dreams as you wake up.

Lucid Dreaming and Astral Projection

Just to say a few details about AP, it is simply the experience when you separate from your physical body and you find your self into the a separate world or dimension. Everything around you aren't completely normal where you can alter every object from your current environment. There's no time boundary that you can travel into the past and future or to a far away places that you've never been.

Lucid dreaming is totally the same as AP that you can alter everything that surrounds you or even change the flow of your dream. The only difference between an AP is that you don't have to go through the trouble of separating from your physical body.

The Near Death Experience

A Near Death Experience can never be intentionally done and it can only happen when your body suffered from a severe trauma or on a fifty-fifty critical condition of survival.

The projection at this state is on real time, place and situation. According to most individual who has experience near death, everything they see are white brilliant light coming from a certain tunnel. Somebody is always at the end of the tunnel waiting for you but be aware that there might be some other else around that will going to take you into another path.
