Restlessness and anxiety is caused when the Air Element or Vayu tattva is not in balance.

Astrologically speaking, the planets Shani (Saturn) and Rahu are the ones representing Vayu tattva.

If you observe carefully whenever you are starting to feel restless more often than not it will be either during Saturn hora or Rahu Kalam.

The more you meditate and do your spiritual practices the more aware you can be about when these negative energy creeps in to our system.

Here are some practical remedies that you can do to manage the Shani and Rahu energy that causes restlessness and anxiety

  1. Light an incense stick or dhoop – do this as soon as you feel you are getting restless.
  2. Slow walking – Walk as slow as possible even if it is within your own home. Observe your breath while doing this.
  3. Chant the name of Rama – Worship of Sri Rama is one of the BEST remedies for Shani.
  4. Chant the mantra – ॐ वायुपुत्राय नमः om vāyuputrāya namaḥ – This mantra helps to remove restlessness and anxiety in the mind.
  5. Use the bija (seed) mantra – Dum to invoke the protective energy of Goddess Durga.
