About me

Yvonne Keogh, MSW
New Age Writer & Artist
First off, I am not an astrologer.  Vedic astrology is a hobby and passion of mine and I am self-taught in Vedic Astrology with a special interest in the Nakshatras (lunar mansions).

I look at Vedic astrology through the lens of enlightenment teachings because Jyotish is "the eyes of the vedas" and it's a fascinating glimpse into the impact that karma and planets have in one's life on all levels.

My passion is to become fully enlightened.  I have been meditating for 25 years and studied my Teacher's work, Satguru Sri Vasudeva's teachings about Enlightenment, Kundalini and the Chakras, and transcribed most of his workshops from around the world.  I also share from my own personal experience as a work-in-progress in consciousness transformation.  I am interested in Vedic astrology primarily as a tool in the spiritual journey, a tool of co-creating one's journey with the planets and stars.

The more I look into the this idea of nakshatras as chakras, the more astonished I am at the depth of their meaning and possible/probable origins into the roots of religions from the most ancient times!

I also paint and write with a focus on the mystical which to me is the essence of spiritual development (artist website; Instagram; artist Facebook).

Why I am sharing this research

I am open to all points of view because I believe that everyone adds an important piece to the whole puzzle of life.  Mysticism shows us how we are all the same inside regardless of differences on the outside.

I come to this research from the perspective that mysticism is at the root of everything - all areas of human endeavour.  This is as Sri Vasudeva has taught also - that the seven chakras are responsible for every area of life and that Kundalini is at the root of all spiritual experiences.    My life and world view changed when Kundalini awakened in me and my wish is that you experience your own Truth also...and if you have experienced it, that you share it - pay it forward, so we can live in a world full of Light.

I have read some of your comments at the India Divine site. I am always surprised by the amount of issues I never new existed and what has been part of human life for thousands of year.
I also live in Canada - Vancouver.
At this point in time I am working of changing myself to become a better human being, more compassionate, more discerning, more humble, insisting on right livelihood and detachment. I know I can only change myself or change my environment.
I do not aspire to become a Ghandi or a Giordano Bruno or an Eric From.
My aspiration is "do no harm" and be compassionate.
I am more than 70 years old. I work in construction, still.
My silent time is occupied in prayers and reminding myself that life is very short and temporary.
However, once I read about other philosophies, etc...I have many questions about the surreal situation we find ourselves as humanity, today.
With so many Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Sufis, etc and followers of Babaji, Sri Aurobindo, Sai Baba, why are we still in these horrific wars, conflicts, arguments and destroying the planet who gives us nourishment and life?
The Vedeas is so beautiful, and the Indian culture so great...What is happening? How can we change the course to a more compassionate behaviour?
How this knowledge of the chackras of the universe can help us to get out of the violence, the despair, the suffering and hopefully create opportunities for a better future?

Hi godschild18,

Thank you for sharing. I hope you don't mind my responding with quotes but you made me think of Mother Teresa's words, “Not all of us can do great things, but we can do small things with great love.” Your compassion, discernment, humility, right livelihood, detachment and concern for suffering in the world already are the beautiful spiritual qualities that can create change. It doesn't matter if you think it's a small thing. Doing small kind things inspires others to also do small kind things and pretty soon we're paying it forward, so it adds up until there's this wave of spiritual energy that will eventually overpower the darkness.

And because you asked about how this knowledge can help, for me, this ancient knowledge of the chakras has tremendous potential to change the world because the evidence for their existence, the fact that entire civilizations knew about them in such depth is so amazing, that it may spark an interest, even if it's just a bit of curiosity at first, to experience them. If it's true that the cosmos is in us, if it's true we have these powers of the chakras within us, then when we change on the inside, what do you think will happen to the world on the outside? This is what my Guru, Sri Vasudeva, is always telling us.

His motto is "Transform Yourself, Transform Your World" and he often quotes Mahatma Gandhi: "Be the change you want to see in the world." You are doing that already but you probably have no idea how much good you have done in the world just by living true to your spiritual ideals. I am so inspired by what you wrote I just had to respond to it. I am not making any money doing this. It's taking a lot of time and I don't even know who cares about this, so you really lifted my day. Thank you.

I'd also like to share this teaching from Sri Vasudeva:

"The cosmic Yugas create the cycles of existence. We are held in these cycles as they move from light into darkness and then vice verse. We are now in a Dwapara age (Sri Yukteswar's calculations from the The Holy Science). That's why Tamasic qualities and Rajasic pervade at this time. Sattvic qualities are slowly growing. At this time dark souls continue to inhabit the planet giving many opportunities for soul cleansing from dark karmas manifesting in the Play.

The knowledge of chakras help us to centre in soul power that we may generate light through sattvic and rajasic energy to meet with and prevail upon darkness. These times, though they are challenging, present many opportunities for growth. Hence like-minded souls need to come together (sanghas) to support and nourish each other making the forces of light stronger. This is the opportunity in this yuga."
