Last week, we looked at what black magic is. In this post, Sadhguru tells us how to remove black magic if we suspect we are under such an influence.

Questioner: Sadhguru, if one is under the negative influence of the occult, would the Dhyanalinga be of help?

Sadhguru: Many of you may not have not noticed this, but there are the Vanashree and Patanjali shrines at the entrance of the Dhyanalinga. They are in the space of a fifteen-degree angle from the Dhyanalinga. That’s why they are located at that point. Otherwise, architecturally, I would have liked to locate them much closer. Generally, people who are possessed by some spirits or who are impacted by the occult and such problems are asked to sit either in a forward fifteen degree angle or a rear side fifteen degree angle, depending upon the type of problem that they have.

That space has been especially created like that so that people can make use of it. Whether you’re aware of it or not, the negative use of energy like black magic and others is there. The fifteen-degree angle is where the doorway is. Whether you know it or not, everyone who enters just drops the negative influences they are carrying. There have been thousands who have dropped such influences. That’s why people who have been to the Dhyanalinga find that suddenly life has changed for them. This is because the negative impacts on their life have dropped. When we say ‘negative impacts’, it’s not necessarily in terms of somebody doing something negative to you. In so many ways, you could have just taken in some negativity. See, it’s not necessary that somebody should poison a fruit [and give it to you]. The fruit might have some natural poison in it, which enters my body when I eat it. Similarly, the negative aspects of life can enter you in so many ways. It is not necessary that somebody is sitting there and plotting against you. So the entrance of the Dhyanalinga, the first fifteen-degree angle, is created for this purpose, and before people seek anything else, these things are just taken care of. They just have to walk in that space, about sixty or seventy feet, and that by itself takes care of these negativities.
