Daily Angel Oracle Card: Mahavatar Babaji ~ Soul Expansion, from the Keepers Of The Light Oracle Card deck, by Kyle Gray, Artwork by Lily Moses
Mahavatar Babaji ~ Soul Expansion: “Your consciousness is expanding. You understand the connection between all things.”
About Mahavatar Babaji: “Mahavatar means ‘great incarnation, or avatar’ and Babaji means ‘sacred father’. Mahavatar Babaji is a deeply respected master yogi who was introduced to the world through the teachings of the Indian yogi Paramahandsa Yogananda. Babaji, as he is called for short, is said to be over 2,000 years old and able to travel between Earth and other worlds. He is said to have an invisible temple in the Himalayas that can appear to those he wants to connect with. Many believe that he is like Christ himself, bringing deep love, acceptance, forgiveness, insight and direction.”
Extended Message For This Card: “You may feel that you have retreated from the world recently. Maybe you have not been as active socially or spiritually, but this time of inner rest has really paid off. You are becoming more and more consciously aware of how connected you are to God and all living beings. This sense of union is called yoga. Yoga goes beyond physical ability and into a sense of awareness that is created through spiritual practice, meditation and devotion to the divine. Mahavatar Babaji, the yogic father, is here to inspire that fire of union within you so that you can understand how your thoughts and actions are creating the waves of energy that form your life.”*

One of my favourite books of all time is “Autobiography of a Yogi,” by Paramahansa Yogananda. If you have not read it, I highly recommend it. That is when I first learned of Mahavatar Babaji, the Guru. I see him now as an Ascended Master, a teacher, an inspiration and a pillar of Light. His energy is calm and all-knowing. He is wise and deeply connected, and he can help us to access these energies in ourselves. He is illumination and he is also discipline, he sees through illusion and into the heart and Soul. He calls for devotion to the ultimate quest of union with Source energy; to whole-hearted commitment to your spiritual journey and complete surrender to faith.
When Mahavatar Babaji comes to you it is time to meditate, do yoga and simplify life. It is time to declutter, detach from drama and find your inner peace. This is not a material journey, and the Guru would not be impressed by material gain or possession. For you cannot take that with you, it simply means nothing on the journey between the dimensions. The only thing that matters is your awakening, your enlightenment, your pursuit of peace, of unity with the Divine.
This is a call to spend time in silence, to calm your mind, to harness the pure energy of Love. This is why we are here, not to accumulate ‘stuff’ but to travel lightly, with reverence and respect upon this sacred Earth.
