Bliss

These last 6 months I have been focusing on music, healing and going deeply within. As I sit in silence, in nature, chant and reflect I find deep peace within that I have never known. Music soothes the depths of my being. I am content in my being at my core. The light is just everywhere. I am feeling called to share the clairsentient gifts I have been cultivating within myself in a more intimate way with my word of mouth connections as well as allowing for my reach to expand to more who are called to learn or experience healing from me. Part of my calling is to assist others in mastering their own energetic field. I also feel called to bridge better understanding through example for those not familiar or skeptical of the power of energy healing and knowing. So much is possible to shift but the collective as a whole does not fully grasp this yet due to the lens of scientific, linear, non- miracle accepting mindsets and the conning antics of a few inauthentic faux-mediums who use their insights for their own gain.

May this knowledge reach those who need to hear this. Particularly I want those who are feelers to understand the blessing and gifts of energy sensitivity that can, when without experiential knowledge, feel overwhelming or challenging. It is from my own growth process that I relate this. There were not blogs on such topics as I was growing up as it wasn’t something even considered in the collective yet.

I can, as a result of my life’s path, help compassionate feelers to ground into their own energetic field and discern the subtlety of their environment, social situations or their own wiring. The sum grace of this, is that now I am to impart this subtle embodiment of truth because I have lived through the process. I have helped many people through my distilled summary of many years of my own experiences. To open peoples heart and minds in a more easeful way is one way I am of service.

I find my own core has opened to a steady flow of incoming sacred knowledge that comes through me via healing work I do for people, animals and the earth. Why don’t I share this more is something I just comprehended in my mind when my car lost it’s steering in June and I experienced a near death experience. Without having to live through any damage to my health I was able to get profound insights to my own hesitation to imparting knowledge per some perceptions I had having to do with humility and not wanting to push my views. The teaching I am interested in is for the sake of the whole so that is not an issue. The car is gone but I am safe and blessed with gratitude for my purpose!

My extended trip to India has further expanded my capacity of perception, of bringing together qualities of depth, surrender and to trust and navigate the reliable flow of grace. The extensive pranayama, chanting and havan sadana practices changed my whole being.

In a few weeks I will start offering healing with colored light that I will pair with the infinite dimensional Pranashakthi healing I already do. I will expand on this once I receive the light pen and work within it. I believe this literal “light work” will also work remotely just as effectively as if I am present. I normally work remotely with Pranashakthi the modality I specialize in. I positively feel this color therapy will be transmit-able in the same way I send remote healing for physical and emotional issues. I will test this in the coming weeks.

If anyone has any questions or comments please feel free to contact me.

Bangalore, Coimbatore and Kanyakumari. Now to see Amma in Kerala.

We have ventured on a self-guided yatra after closing down the apartment in the beautiful temple where we lived in Vrindavan. We cooked all meals on our gas stove. I would purchase veggies daily from Radha, or her son if she was not there. We had an extensive Pranayama Sadana and I did lots of Yajna on the roof in the company of monkeys, squirrels and parrots. I also worked on my Devanagari for Sanskrit and Hindi. I am reading and writing but slowly. Time here was also spent absorbing healing knowledge. Several people needed healing on this leg of the trip. I have friends here so some socializing also happened.

We then moved to attend a workshop with Sadguru on Shambhavi. It was two days at a huge event center in Bangalore with 8000 other people. How he manages to attract that many people is impressive. To chant AUM with that many people was so special. Some of class and workshop was recorded previously and there was some time with Sadguru himself. We were quite far. I am taking on this practice twice a day for 40 days. I already have Shambhavi training from my guru for healing but that training from Pranashakthi Mastership is for healing purposes so I will see how this goes.

Inspired by this event and being very close to his ashram in Coimbatore we decided to venture by train there. The Isha Center is beautiful. I spent two days there. There is a Suraya and Chandra Kund, (women bathe in the Chandra Kund), a Bharavi Temple, the huge Adiyogi bust, as well as a meditation hall with Shiva Lingam. On the last day there I wanted to dip in the Chandra Kund and went right before it closed as we were making offerings in the day to each temple. I was the only woman there! That was an inspiring highlight! The tall roof has a magnificent mural. There is a water fall and a Shiva Lingam in the kund. When I went earlier in the day there were many many women.

The next stop was Kanyakumari the Southern-most tip of India where three seas meet and the sun rises and sets in the same place. We took a train and were fortunate to find a booking on the seaside. The cab from the train whose license plate ended in 3333 (meaning angels are present) found us the place. It was only available for 3 nights so we later moved to an even better location outside of the hustle and bustle near the Viveckananda Kendra which was a shanti campus with exhibits, Ekanathji Ranade the Kendra and Viveckananda Memorial’s founder’s memorial Samadi and a private beach. Ekanath enabled the Viveckananda memorial to be built through his persistence and creativity. There was an exhibit on how he achieved this which was amazing! There was a Bose nursery there I am not sure if he had been at the Kendra during his lifetime but he was the soul who found that plants feel pain. I am inspired to read more about him.

The hotel we stayed at was crazy but because of the city being booked we didn’t have a huge choice. The manager was a drinker and the toilet and sink was not connected to running water with no toilet seat. We had to wait for hours to check in even though we came way after check in time. It was a blessing nevertheless to be able to stay. It isn’t everywhere that you can have ripe mangoes in December.

We bathed in the holy waters, watched sunsets and sunrises, went twice to the Amman temple and had a lovely time! I went to an exhibit on the Ramayanaa and was able to read it all. At the end there is a larger than life murti of Matabharata or “Mother India” this moved me almost to tears it was so magnificent!

Gandhi’s ashes were housed in Kanyakumari and there is a memorial there. The spot where his ashes were held lights with the sun on his birthday each year and water never comes through the hole in he ceiling.

I am resting now in the very air conditioned train headed for Amma’s Ashram for New Years Eve! Looking forward to that! More travels to come.

Leaving Vrindavan

We closed down the apartment in Vrindavan this morning and are heading South for the warmer climate and a workshop in Bangalore. Visiting Kanyakumari after the weekend. Always there is a bitter sweetness when departing this special sweetness.

Last night I wished I would see Bindi the female dog I have been feeding many times during my stay when she manifested in front of me. I was worried for her continued wellbeing because although her strength has substantially improved she is still weak and shaking. As I was feeding her another dog who has a head injury appeared. When I looked up a man was standing in front of me and he stated that he looks after the dogs in the area. He promised to care for her. I knew he was authentic in his words because many dogs were trailing him and at ease with his presence. She was not familiar with him and held close to my presence. A touching moment for me.

Earlier in the day I met for lunch with Nikunja from Food For Life who I was blessed to meet. During my stay she showed me the schools, garden and cow sanctuary. They even have a few Blue Antelopes there. We had many nice visits.

Was able to visit with a girl Radha I met in 2014 who is now a mother. I ran into her as I went to take my favorite walk. Her child is named OM and was astrologically chosen.

I went to the Raj Mandir to see Sadhu Maharaj and sat and spoke with him for some time.

Upon completing my visit I went and purchased a brass singing bowl that was hand made. It has a lovely tone and will be useful in leading classes, workshops and healing events when I return. I experimented with sound healing utilizing my voice, healing and the bowl. I will work with this more as this is resonating deeply.

I love you Vrindavan! फिर मिलेंगे

Dog Seva

A few days ago I was walking near my apartment in Vrindavan. I saw this sweet dog I named Bindi per a perfect mud dot between her eyes. She was so thin, and shaking was foraging in trash in the alley. I had some biscuits I had picked up the day before for feeding hungry dogs which are a common sight.

When I fed her I realized she had a neurological issue and that her spine was bent. She could not eat well from the ground because she was shaking so much. I am a healer and intended to give some healing too but she had left before I got back with water for her.

I sent her remote Pranashakthi energy healing that night but could not get her out of my mind. She was so weak and was so shaky when she tried to ear from the ground.

Yesterday when I went to get milk I saw her again in the same place. I was ecstatic she was alive and appeared stronger. I again fed her and was able to capture some images of her for the sake of remote healing.

Tomorrow I will take the extra rotis I made today around to all the ravenous dogs in my neighborhood inspired by my new friend Bindi and will hopefully see her gentle soul again soon.

Back in Vrindavan

I have moved into an apartment in Braj for the month of November and am settling in for focus on honing Pranashakthi healing techniques, on coursework for my healing classes, on my music, meditation, on my Sadana! The luxury of this much focused time to tend to my practice it is a true luxury! So grateful for my life and how it flows!

Precious Life

I was thinking about my friend Matura Seva and his unexpected passing while watching the sun set in Mumbai last night. It was an auspicious full moon so we each offered Mantras, I sent healing to a list of those who needed it and we slept in its beautiful glow on the building roof.

Matura’s life demonstrates what I already know and practice myself which is how one person can light up so many. He did so with with joy, Gyana and Bhakti. We all have that capacity to positively be of service to others, to have courage to fully unfold our authentic selves. Each person has special gifts to offer. Kindness and openness is so important. I have always felt the urgency to make other people’s lives better through my actions and my heart. This trip to India is opening up new levels of self love that increase this capacity. So honored to have known this great soul.

This reflection inspired me to have a deep conversation with a dear friend that I may not have had. So grateful for all that is. Don’t put off what is important because that moment may not exist in the future!

India Second by Second Darshan

Rishikesh opened my heart so wide. The light was so muted. I stayed at a very nice place where I was sincerely nurtured. It rained a few days. The mules would walk by my place. Sometimes their hooves sounded like rain on the roof. A very much needed peaceful and magical stay with an added deep connection with the Ganga. I was very close to Laxman Jhula.

I moved next to Vrindavan and was on-time for Damodara’s Birthday who was just a baby on my last extended stay. Enjoyed the daily Arti. caught up with some old friends and visit with Sadhu Maharaj as well as a trip to the Yamuna. Received an incredible color healing from a new friend. On the way out of town took darshan into the Radhe Maan Sarovar a kund created by Bhakti tears of Gopis when Krishna left Vrindavan. This was truly a highlight.

Took a sleep train from Mathura to Mumbai after a bumpy ride in a Tom Tom but the ride managed to dry my wet cloths.

The next morning in Mumbai stopped at the Ganesha temple on the way to Kankana’s Banerjee’s house. I am staying with my Hindustani teacher.

My intention is to learn as much as possible this time and deeply organize what I have learned from her since 2011. I am rewriting class notes and verifying for clarity any issues I may have had in the writing. I am also learning Devanagari for Sanskrit and doing my daily Sri Vidya meditation. Feeling so peaceful! So lovely to connect with my long time musical Guruma in her home. What a blessing.

It is amazing to have the time to put my energies towards my passions, creativity, healing and music.

This trip I am focusing on these precious moments besides just an opportunity to completely unwind but also to put my efforts to hone my mind, body heart, simply by being my authentic self. Feeling so blessed!

Rishikesh

Today is the second day of Navaratri. I woke up early and meditated. It is pouring rain here. I spent the last two hours walking in the rain in meditation and saying my daily mantras.

I have never felt such a deep level of peace. My heart is softened. The gentle breezes are filled with chanting, chirping birds, incense, and earth. I am grateful for every drop of rain, for the adorable street dogs, and the land.

I await a dear friend I haven’t seen for some time in joy.

Time for a nap.

India 2018

I am back in India for a few months. The purpose of this trip is to allow for further unfolding of Pranashakthi, the healing modality I work with, to go deeper in my meditation and  spiritual insight.  I landed and am staying with my amazing friends Bhavana and Sanjanain Delhi and leaving today for Rishikesh.

The trip has been peaceful and nurturing to my soul . I have seen  my healing guru Sri Yogacharya Arun Kumar here in Delhi. I have also seen Dr. Sharma and Annapurna whom I have known since 2004 from the Yoga Society. Dr. Sharma our Sanskrit Scholar now in his early 90’s is not capable of travel so this may be my last visit with him!

I will blog for this trip as I am connected to Internet.
