Lunar calendar of meditation for August 20, 2017

August 20, 2017 Sunday
28 lunar day
Symbol: Lotus
Meditations: Ideals, candle.
This is a favorable day to work with chakras, because they are open. We must be clean physically, emotionally and mentally before working with our chakras, therefore all kinds of cleansing practices for the body and mind are recommended today. The 28th lunar day is also favorable for working with dreams. While dreaming one may receive spiritual insight and understand their life's purpose. This process happens each lunar month, regardless of whether we recognize it or not. In order to work with dreams we have to be aware that we are dreaming. However, we can not actually operate consciously while dreaming; usually, when we try to interfere, the dream stops and we wake up. To gain control over your dreams as a beginner, try to look at your hands right before going to sleep; once you realize you are dreaming, bring back the image of your palms in front of you.
During the 28th lunar day the Muladhara chakra is active.

2 lunar day
Symbol: Horn of plenty
Meditations: Observe what is favorable for you now and what is not.
Continue planning for the upcoming lunar period. You may continue planning for the upcoming lunar month on the 2nd lunar day. The energy center connected to this day is the philtrum (the area between nose and upper lip). During the day concentrate your attention on this point a few times for at least a minute. The 2nd lunar day practice: Find a calm and peaceful place, create a comfortable atmosphere. Sit in a comfortable position, concentrate on your breath, relax your mind and body. Place your hands on your belly and concentrate all your attention to this region. Try to evoke images, for example, you may visualize a favorite food and feel the reaction from your stomach: if you feel pleased - eat it, if not - abstain from eating it. You may imagine situations or certain people and try to feel, what energy they transmit to you at this moment. After meditation summarize the information and decide what you'd like to change during the upcoming lunar month.

The energy of this day helps you to realize the strains in your body, aroused as a result of insult, anger, impatience or other negative emotions. This is a day for purification of the astral body.
