Unplugged

I gave myself a step away from electronics to be present with my family visiting from Oregon and Northern California. My oldest sister invites us all each year and although I have missed a few I am so grateful for the kindness she extends each year. Everyone including my mother, all of of my siblings and nieces/ nephews were here.

It was lovely to reconnect with everyone as often I am in India at this time!

Being off internet was precious! The silence at night of no cars. Sometimes I stay up late just to have that peace in San Francisco. Bit it never really gets quiet.

Communication after Transition

My father had written us, his daughters, a letter to be shared with us when he passed to spirit. The purpose was to recount his life in case we had questions. My mother brought this for us to read this weekend. He has been gone for years so it was nice to receive this.

I knew his life was not easy. He came from poverty living without running water and electricity for part of his childhood. His parents did not have the full capacity to care for him, working hard and drinking, so he largely raised himself. Experiencing suffering of poverty, he and his siblings fended for themselves and experienced neglect, he had a sensitive heart. At one point he even lived in a chicken coop.

I am touched that he shared his vulnerable history. That he had concern for us because he had questions for his own parents when they passed. I was glad that this letter was not given to me when the transition was recent. Although I believe in reincarnation losing a parent is not easy. It was much easier to read this a few years out.

What I received from this is an understanding of my life and experiences I had. I feel for the young boy who was my father and my uncle who is still living. It also illuminates the hard work of my own mother. Times these days in some ways are more progressive and luxurious and in others much more complicated (constant stimulation of the brain and overused or electronics).

I was not aware this set of writings existed, though my father was a prolific writer and I know he kept journals.

I am grateful! I knew many of these stories but to read it all in one sitting was like talking to him again.

I am grateful!

The Universe Provides

I have two feral cats that live near me. They always know when to come spend time with me. They used to be so shy now they let me approach them. It’s a love bond! ✨🧡✨

Pranashakthi Light Therapy

Pranashakthi is such a versatile system of healing. Last year in India I started working with light therapy in connection to this modality. When combined it amplifies the light. The cartridges are of liquid and water is a conductor so the energy flows very nicely! There are also crystals and flower essences within. It is really clearing!

Different colors emit a different vibration. They each feel differently. I will post some still photos to demonstrate what I mean. I am so grateful for Pranashakthi!

Ashram • Shelter

In 2004 I was seeking solace within this City it was a time of rapid shifts and deep inner work! Word of mouth from a friend at my ceramic studio brought me to an Iyengar yoga class a block from my house in a community center called Goat Hall. Tony, the teacher was my friend’s roommate. A woman from the class became my friend. Aurora’s parents used to frequent the Yoga Society in the Mission so she had been going for years. She invited me to go to yoga.

My first teacher was Hariharananda. He looked like a yogi from the Himalayas. He would chant an invocation to begin, followed by three hours of hatha and end in Yoga Nidra (a guided meditation intended to embody self, deeply relax, and be present with true self. It is a form of awakened sleep that is restorative). Hari became my primary teacher.

I practiced with Hari several times a week. I also met Jerome who played harmonium. I cried when I first heard it. He taught Jivamukti and incorporated music in his class.

Why I reiterate this story of finding the ashram is because it demonstrates how grace and blessings come about.

Hari had known Brahmananda Sarasvati, the founder of Yoga Society. Ramamurti Mishra was his given name before he met his guru Bodhisattva Baba Bhagavan Das. Brahamananda was an incredible being. He started the daily Agni Hotras in the Mission. Besides being a Guru he was a neurosurgeon, a healer, worked with sound vibration, Sanskrit and he wrote many spiritual books about cosmic consciousness and many spiritual topics such as mysticism. Though he has left the body his teachings live on through his ethereal presence, his books and recordings. Ram Gopal has a weekly satsang on Wednesday where he plays recordings of his teachings.

I began slowly learning about Sanskrit from this influence and met Dr. Sharma a renowned Sanskrit scholar. His wife Annapurna is a living saint and we became close right away.

The sister ashram in New York founded by Brahamananda has a connection to this ashram. I was in love with Kirtan at this point. Kamaniya and Keshavacharia who had lived at Ananda the Monroe ashram came time give a concert when they were through town. We became friends and they recommended Bhaktifest a festival in Joshua Tree. It was a brand new festival for yoga and Kirtan. I went!

This was just what I needed. I met beautiful beings I still know today and was inspired to buy a harmonium. So many things happened at this juncture I cannot remember the exact order. I met Kankana Banerjee my musical Guruma. She is a master of Hindustani Classical. I then took Jai Uttal’s Kirtan Camp.

A year later in 2012 I met Sri Yogacharya Arun Kumar my healing guru. He showed up at the ashram when I asked for a strong form or healing to help my father. This was not announced but I got guidance to be there. Learning healing and teaching followed. This changed my life.

I was offered Kirtan satsang in 2013. Shortly thereafter I met my band mates.

So the plan is an unfolding. Grace comes but it is a surprise who shows up. This year I have been blessed with so many new friends from the Seva with Shivananda and other means. The ashram continues to bring through beautiful people to me. All that I have received from the ashram has enabled me to be in a place of meeting higher vibrational people. I grateful!

Gifts are always showing up for us even if it seems like the world is upside down. It’s a matter of staying on track with self, chanting and leaving the heart open!

Expansion

I am learning Hindi and Italian simultaneously. I am making ceramic art. Also I am blogging regularly and learning new mantras. I am helping people with healing and teaching also.

My mind is changing from learning languages. Daily writing is also sharpening and singing as well. Those aspects of self. Today the blog is short!

Literally tired.

Pranashakthi Class

Today I realized why India was postponed. Many synchronicities surrounded this class. Two members texted me out of the blue on the same day asking about learning from me. I had just decided it would be a good time for a class.

I signed up for the Holistic Health Saloon I usually attend as a healer but was late in doing so because of finding out about a change in my plans for my trip which I had postponed. When I attended I had a nice connection with two talented women who ended up joining us. One was guided to realize her own gifts the day previous. When I read her energy it matched the guidance she received. My other friend had their trip postponed and also decided to join.

What a beautiful group of beings, of natural healers. It feels good to be able to bring this information through to more people. It has helped so many. Everyday I use this modality.

It seems as if the Universe was conspiring on behalf of us all for the connection.

I am grateful for Sri Yogacharya Arun Kumar for imparting this invaluable knowledge to me.

Pranashakthi 11-16-19

Pranashakthi, the healing that comes through me is such a blessing. Yesterday I helped my mom’s dog Daisy. She’s so sweet. I did not think about it but later realized she had really instant results. She lives in Oregon.

I attended the Holistic Health Saloon and saw about 9 people today. I love meeting people and it surprises me that I understand through knowing deeply just what to do. Yes I have extensive training but it feels good to have an impact on people’s lives even through the mini sessions. I already received two follow up thank you emails. I also saw someone who referred me previously and that referral received excellent test results on an issue that had been at a standstill.

I have been practicing Pranashakthi since 2012. Almost every day and usually more than once is an opportunity to call upon the assistance. It weaves an amazing tapestry of friends both animals and people.

Somehow I have been gifted this good fortune.

I cannot explain how blessed I feel. Results happen with Pranashakthi and there is for some reason so much grace around me. Each time I hear of miraculous results I am always surprised. I meet just who I need to meet and I am surrounded by so much love.

I know deeply this is my calling. Countless sweet encounters. Distance healings to all over the world. This entry is not made from a perspective of pride or any other motive but to just reflect on the blessings!

In 2012 people were not overall ready for this and I was discouraged by someone who was wanting to prevent me from following my heart and blocked me.

I allowed that and I didn’t stick to my truth in an outward way but operated just by word of mouth. It was not wrong but I just have been supported by a new friend who sees me and has pushed me to step up to my potential. I am now because I can make a big difference in people’s lives.

I work at a law firm besides healing. Over the years I have helped many clients of ours. Some do not know I am a healer. One man I helped with his dying father. Legal matters are stressful and people really need light. Even the downtown area is effected by the chanting as I take the elevators. I have assisted two building security men, and co workers.

Today was really an impactful day for me.

I had set up a yagna (sacred fire) in the evening but the people who were coming could not make it. We decided to have it anyway and I sang as well. My friends son who I have known since he was three helped me. We chanted the Hanuman Chalisa afterward. I feel such peace.

Tomorrow I teach two classes. I look forward to showing others what I love. I hope they experience the same joy!

Clairsentience and Claircognizance

Clairscentience is a form of intuition that utilizes feeling. Clair means clear, and sentience is to feel. It usually goes hand in hand with claircognizance, or clear knowing. I have both.

The beauty of this pairing of intuitional aspects is that it is that it accurate way to sense truth, love, and also to know when something is not right as well. The knowing aspect brings in more information. For example once I was running late for a wedding. All the way to the temple I was guided which lane to go into and I arrived 15 minutes early.

I am a medical intuitive for me to finely feel is a invaluable because it enables me to feel others subtle emotions, their vitality as well as stronger energetic aspects like inflammation, tumors, nerve pain. I can literally feel the energies but without taking on pain. Sometimes in the case of very deep depression I can feel that as if it were me. I have learned how to differentiate and not over identify. Through knowing am specifically guided in how to assist.

Sometimes I am guided to go somewhere and then I find someone I know or don’t know in a situation that requires my help. Once it was in a cab, another time in an elevator. Once I saw a flower on the sidewalk and my knowing instructed me to pick it up. As I boarded the underground I was again guided to give the flower to a young man. Despite that being strange as I was much older and a complete stranger. The man burst into tears of gratitude as he had been beaten up on the train several days prior. He did not want to ride the train but got up his courage so the flower I gave was the compassion and love he needed and was the guidance to him that all would be fine!

Often people who have this gift do not understand because they just assume that we are all wired the same which we are not.

Through Pranashakthi which is the modality I use I am able to operate the fine information in a precise way. I am grateful for my guru Sri Yogacharya Arun Kumar who was guided to me when I requested to the universe for something stronger than Reiki. I have learned so much and have embodied the wisdom.

Here are some of the ways I use this sensitivity.

  1. I can tell if someone is upset before an issue arrises
  2. I assist people remotely during surgeries to keep them calm and keep inflammation in check
  3. When I want to go to a lecture and I cannot decide which will be the best I hold my hand over the photo of both people and can sense their vibration
  4. I know a persons attributes upfront when I meet them
  5. I use this with every type of healing I do both remote and in person
  6. I can feel the vibrations of when a person has taken a photo of a sacred site or simply of high vibrations.

If you feel you have this gift the best way to develop it is to acknowledge and honor the truth of what you receive. At first the faith may not be there but the more you listen to what you feel and know the more accurate you become.
