The Moon moves quickly through its phases. Our days are based on the joint relationship of the Moon and the Sun.
Where the Sun represents our outward personality and how we present ourselves in the world, the Moon bears the soul’s energy and indicates our emotional and psychological patterns and tendencies.
The Moon is associated with a person’s emotional make-up, unconscious habits, rhythms, memories and moods. It is associated with the past.
In general, if the Moon is in its Waxing phase, which means ‘growing’ into being Full; it is time to seek the limelight, to explore new things and concentrate on material things.
When the Moon is Waning or on its way from Full Moon to New or dark Moon then this is the time in which one must be more inward and reflective of the soul.
AstroVed organizes special Ganesha rituals every 4th Waning Moon which will help you to get his grace and move to higher realms of material and spiritual refinement.
Smashing coconuts is a spiritual technology that manifests in both your material and spiritual worlds. The coconut energetically absorbs your lower vibrations. When it is smashed, the energy holding back your progress is forcefully disseminated. When this is done on Lord Ganesha’s 4th Waning Moon, the obstacle removing power is amplified abundantly.
The 4th Waning Moon Coconut Smashing ritual will be performed at the famous Ganesha Vortex.
Dr. Pillai often refers to the coconut as an aspect of the divine. Only the coconut has three distinct eyes and this relates to the three eyes of Lord Shiva representing the holy Trinity of Evolution: Creation, Preservation and Destruction, or the trinity of ego, maya and karma out of where most obstacles rise.
Only when the physical world or maya is stripped or smashed away can one taste the sweet untouched nectar of spiritual purity and bliss. Smashing coconuts is a spiritual technology. The smashing of the coconut is symbolic of the removal of karmas that create obstacles on many different levels of spiritual and material evolution.
The coconut energetically absorbs your lower vibrations and when the coconut is smashed, it powerfully disperses your obstacles and hindrances. It is believed that smashing coconuts on Lord Ganesha’s 4th Waning Moon amplifies the obstacle removing power and ensures your progress.
“I wanted to break 108 coconuts for Ganesha for a long time but for one reason or another, I was not able to, until this year. The same day the 108 coconuts were smashed, 2 healings spontaneously occurred; my lower back which had been paining me, simply stopped hurting and in my minds eye I saw a hidden negative belief that money was evil cleared from my mind. Thank You Ganesha for removing Obstacles Unseen!” ~ Raja Mulloy
“At first, I couldn’t believe things had gotten so bad. My money was running out, and I could no longer deny my own financial crisis. I was upset and I blamed other people, myself, Saturn, karma, etc., for my misfortunes. I tried to stay positive, but it was really starting to feel like nothing would get better, ever. As things got worse, I lost hope and I stopped thinking about spiritual solutions and divine help.
Then I saw an AstroVed newsletter announcing Ganesha’s 4th Waning Moon. I have a deep love for Ganesha, so I definitely wanted to make sure to participate. My job had ended and I was anxious about spending money, still I added some rituals to my cart but I put off actually charging anything on my credit card. When I checked back all the rituals had been pulled due to the preparation time required, except for the coconut smashing ritual. So I order the 108 coconut smashing ritual. I have actually done that one myself and found it to be very effective – but in the US it’s not easy to buy 108 coconuts, plus it can cost between $3-4 per coconut, so the ritual in India is quite a bargain in comparison, and it takes place at a sacred power spot.
I placed my order Sunday night and went to bed, I could see Ganesha smiling at me. My heart felt lighter. I knew Ganesha would help straighten out my problems. The very next day I was contacted by a recruiter who had a full-time, long-term job opportunity. She said I was perfect for it and wondered if I was available for an interview in the morning. I said that was perfect, later realizing the interview would actually fall on Ganesha’s 4th Waning Moon! The interview went very well, and about 2 hours after the interview I received a job offer. No additional interviews required. I happily agreed to their terms, feeling very, very relieved at the sudden turn of events.” ~ Kyle (Detroit, Michigan)
