The Master gave Rajasi a bangle on Christmas of 1937 as a physical, mental, and spiritual protection. The bangle came off easily and he was afraid it would drop into the ocean and get lost. Therefore, he took it off, not knowing the danger it subjected him to. I told Master of this, and he became very worried, and wrote Rajasi the following letter and I quote DEC. 15, 1938 – According to astrological laws to do away with all bad influences of planets,there is nothing better than a bangle. Each two bodies of the universe attract.
When this adhesive power of the bodily cells becomes lax with the advance of age, the planetary pull becomes stronger, causing more laxity of cells, inviting disease and the mind to disturbance. The bangle and its combination of metal as fixed by the Rishis emanate an electronic ray (unseen to human eyes) which counteracts all planetary vibrations. Just as a lightning rod is affixed to a house to absorb the falling thunder and lightening, so the bangle is a lightening rod to absorb the ferocity of bad planetary rays falling on the body, when disease attacks of bad karma.
Besides, I heard Master say many times that Satan creates in the mind of the bangle wearer the impulse to take the bangle off, so uninterruptedly he could punish them through the instrument of bad karma of past lives. I remember definite instances of cases who almost could not wear the bangle as the arm rotted under it. One person had to change the position of the bangle three or four times.
He was cured of paralysis and some kind of fits. The bangle will also modify and lessen any wrong influence on business. Sometimes to take the bangle off when one needs to, even in that moment, it is also dangerous. I write this only to emphasize the laws of electronic vibrations which God created and the Rishis discovered to counteract the evil planetary influence on the human body. Rajasi never took off his bangle again.
Here are the facts. If you are a lesson student you may be able to purchase one if you can afford it. Anything with gold is expensive.
Spiritualizing astrology is a very complex subject. If your body is very strong and your mind is powerful, and certain destructive vibrations radiate from the stars due to past karmic blueprints in your subconscious mind, and they begin to shed their rays upon you, there will be no reaction at all because you will be impervious to their rays, your shield is strong. How do you develop this shield? Suppose your body and mind are weak at that particular moment and your biorhythms are low and your immunity is weak due to certain transgressions such as wrong eating, lack of exercise and sexual abuse. What will happen? The cosmic rays will have great power to affect you.
There are certain outward protections, such as astrological bangles that have a specific weight, consisting of three metals combined in a pure form of silver, gold and copper. Certain sizes of diamonds can also be effective. Unfortunately, if you are not spiritually strong the radiation will start affecting you in a destructive way when using large stones as a shield. A perfect example of being exposed to large diamonds was Elizabeth Taylor. This famous actress was known for wearing some of the largest diamonds in the world. She became ill for many years and very few understood about her exposure to wearing large diamonds. However, if you are highly spiritual, you will absorb the radiation and the magnetic shield will protect you.
An airplane or a house can be fitted with a lightning rod to attract the stun of the lightning and be protected. Just the same way a human temple can be protected from ceaseless magnetic and electrical radiations emanating from the heavens. It was discovered by the sages that when metals are pure in form, they transmit an astral light which is a powerful counter measure against the negative pull of the stars and planets. When wearing an astrological bangle, you never remove it even for cleaning. They are made by the monks of the Self-Realization Fellowship in Los Angeles California or their counterpart in India. They may now not be available to the general public. But their lesson students may have access to them. Unfortunately because of the cost of gold they are very expensive.
When the planets decide to take an unfriendly interest in you, worry not as you can protect yourself with an astrological armlet. For more information see chapter 16, “Outwitting the Stars” in the book “Autobiography of a Yogi” by Paramahansa Yogananda, a spiritual classic, which explains this in detail.
The whole idea is that if you do not protect yourself constantly when you are healthy those karmic laws begin to come to collect bills. Children should learn these laws to be able to take care of themselves. You must reprogram the computer of your subconscious mind with strong positive affirmations. Astrology is a scientific study of the astronomical influences which comes at certain periods of your life according to the planetary conjunctions of certain planets and time specific magnetic fields, attraction, and repulsion. And you are born at the very specific time where specific conjunctions are there, and which guide your entire life if you do not control your destiny by willpower.
Swami Sri Yukteswar’s creation of a unique bracelet would take root in the West for the most spiritual of reasons. The healing bracelet he recommended his disciples wear for spiritual and physical protection was an ornament forged out of three powerful and symbolic metals. The bracelet — a combination of copper, silver, and gold metals in specific weights — is said to emit an astral light that counteracts the negative pull of electrical and magnetic radiation.
