Our beauty is not in our makeup and in our fashion, our beauty is in our straight forwardness and truth that will protect our psyche, and when the psyche is protected with that then you cannot be but rich.
Without one thing man is not complete, and that is intuitive mind, because without intuitive mind he has no protection.
Wearing a rishi knot and putting a cotton cloth around it was originally so that my signals should be clear. My intuition should be mine.

It's not the plant, it's not the branches, not the leaves, it is not even the rose. It's the fragrance. Clear off your fragrance. Let your radiant body shield you. Let you understand you are a living light.
The circumvent force is sort of an aura—a circle around the body—which is a most powerful force that protects you from all negative forces.
When anybody tells you something rotten, you start believing. You don't know that the hand of God is there to protect you. Human is afraid of a human because he does not remember God.

When we chant the mantra, 'Aad Guray Nameh, Jugad Guray Nameh, Sat Guray Nameh, Siri Guru Devay Nameh. Wahe Guru Ji Ka Khalsa, Wahe Guru Ji Ki Fateh,' we delay the car from the space by thirty seconds, so we are always thirty seconds away from all unfortunate causes. By doing this, we put an iron shield on ourselves, and our mental capacity feels we are protected.
The electromagnetic field of the universal mother, Mother Nature, is most powerful. Woman has a divine protection because her caliber, constitution, and total concept is part of Mother Nature's concept. You are at the same frequency.

If, for forty days in your life you talk nothing but divine, then by the divine protection you can turn the most negative situation to the divine.
It is not that guns can protect you or bulletproof can protect you. It is the sensory system which can protect you and give you the signs of not being in the reality of things, and you need that. All it takes is you and time and your perpetual projection.

When you meditate and your mind deals with the Universe, with the Infinite, your brain needs pure protein. Where is pure protein in your body? In the roots of the hair. Hair is nothing but pure protein and it protects you from sun and moon, from electromagnetic field, and it keeps your own individual electromagnetic field. So there is no interference of vibrations.
Intuition is the only factor given by God to protect ourselves. Intuition will give us the intelligence and the consciousness to protect ourselves. We can do it in a second, but if we don’t develop it, then what?
Glands are the guardians of health and happiness and you just eat up your glands under constant fear and negativity.
The circumvent force is around you. That is what does not allow any negative force to enter you, and when the negative force does not enter you, you cannot be unhealthy, unhappy, unholy.

The love of existence, of our lives, and of our breathing will be in need of the flow of the psyche in us; therefore, we can be a real combination of self within the self. And the sensory system that will develop automatically out of us will be our archangel protecting us and glorifying us.

Our protections are not our eyes, our ears, our mouth. Our protection is dialogue and our dialogue cannot protect us if we do not have intuitive mind behind it. It is intuition which must compute the pros and cons of everything which is around us, which is within us.
Nothing will protect you from suffering and pain in this world other than righteousness. If you lean on righteousness, the Creator of this Universe shall create the environment to stand by you.
Your vibration—whatever you say, create, think—is what we call a protective shield or circumvent force. Your own vibrations feed the circumvent force. When that becomes weak, you are trapped by negative forces.

Whatever your mental thoughts are, that is your aura. Your aura is determined by what you vibrate. We call it the protective shield, and what the protective shield is, that is what your life is.
Once you develop a personal discipline, your psyche starts emitting a sense of confidence, trust, and grace, and that creates love. Then your radiance should be so strong, that even if a hateful person sees you, it should totally neutralize the other person's psyche so that they experience nothing but love and friendship.

Vibrate the name of God—everything will come to you. How will it come to you? Those vibrations will change the color of your aura. Constant change in the color of your aura will change the power of the circumvent force. The power of the circumvent force will protect and shield; it will attract God consciousness and Mother Nature will serve you. You will have all you need.
You must prepare yourself for the coming onslaught of this tidal wave of insanity which is going to go over us. Weather is changing. Metabolism is changing. Your hormones are changing. Your food production is changing. Therefore, we have to prepare ourselves. We have to have a very stable mind, a very stable personality and very stable communication.
The circumvent force can be straightened out by concentrating on yourself as a part of the Universe and meditating on the Holy Nam. It can straighten out any pit in your life. It can plug any deficiency.
Those people who are humble, affectionate, serving, and who breathe the Divine Force into themselves, make their mind concentrate on the breath, and pray to the Universal Spirit by tuning in—not only does their own magnetic field get charged because of the life force, their circumvent force becomes so strong that it can keep away all the negative forces, and they can change the destiny of others.
