What is a Psychic Attack?
Projection of Negative Energies
By Joseph Ghabi
A psychic attack is simply negative energy that someone sends with the conscious or unconscious intention to inflict harm upon you, your life or your family. Harm can be launched towards your emotional, physical, spiritual or mental state. Those negative energies can be projected in the form of thought, based mainly upon jealousy toward you. It can also happen for many reasons other than jealousy.
My belief is that psychic attack can be influenced 98% of the time by someone in your surrounding that you already know, even friends or family members, although is not always intentional. These thought forms can be sent consciously or unconsciously. When they are sent unconsciously, the person sending the thoughts is doing so without their own awareness and jealousy, envy, or anger are usually the Continue reading
How to take away Kann Drishti or Buri Nazar or Evil Eye?
By Divine Brahmanda, 2010
“Nazar”/”Drishti”/”Kannu”, however you want to call it is the same all over India. In ancient times, they understood the power of thought and even speech. People adhered to Dharma and hence their thoughts and speech would be true/come true – such was the power of their mental energies and focus.
The concept of Drishti/Nazar is also that knowingly/unknowingly – thoughts of jealousy and envy must not affect someone/something.

The Beauty Behind Krishna’s Flute
By Sanjib Mukherjee
Radha is the embodiment of devotion with her entire existence dedicated to loving her Lord Krishna. She loved Krishna from the very core of her being and totally accepted everything about him, even the flirtatious attentions of all the fellow gopis (village girls) who also had their eyes on her beloved.
Nothing in this universe could ever move her from her affections; Radha did not care for all the other women chasing her love, did not bother with all the animals who unconditionally loved Krishna, or be concerned with the environment or nature who adored the lands Krishna graced. Nothing could move Radha from her one-pointed focus towards her Lord except for one tiny matter, which would bring out the most extreme jealousy within her. Throughout her life, Radha had always yearned to become Krishna’s flute.
