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.

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.

The Value of Small Acts of Kindness

My heart always finds opportunities to serve. One day when I was walking down the street I noticed beautiful flowers all over sidewalk that had fallen from a nearby tree. My guidance told me to pick up one, so I did.  As I entered the train I was told to give it to a young man of 20 or so. I thought to myself this is a little crazy.  As I did the man burst into tears and said that I restored his faith. He had been beaten on the train by three people days before and had finally decided to face his fear of riding caused by the trauma. I was able to hold space for him to process this and to be an example that he needed at that moment. Trusting what I was being guided to do impacted someones life. This cost me nothing and was so powerful.

Once while in India a group of us witnessed a dog stuck in a sewer. The water level had dropped and she was walking on the trash but unable to get out because the walls were too high. We gathered a large crowd and part of the party went to grab a ladder. A young man seeing the situation and knowing that a human’s weight would not hold to step on the trash leaned his body down into the trough with his strong arms as we held him from the side. He was able to grab the dog without getting bit. The image of the dog after she was released of the stress knowing that she wouldn’t have survied otherwise was an incredible sight. She drank water from the side of a building to rehydrate and peered back at us with peaceful relief. I was literally moved to tears to see this.

Today I was going to ship out a few gifts for birthdays. I had boxes for the shipping under my arm and was approached by a man sitting on the sidewalk who asked if I needed them. I was using them so when finished, I went back to the original source and found him a few others. He was using them to sit on to keep warm. Oh how he lit up in surprised joy when I returned.  Again no cost was involved.

These acts are tangible but smaller acts are equally impactful. For example when our hearts are in peace because we meditate, we keep the environment drama free. When we breathe and slow down we give space to the atmosphere.  By going into nature to and feeling that deep healing we instantly create balance that we can later share with others with our clear presence. To be a producer of harmony is simple. Some ways to do this are to radiate joy, to show up for someone who needs you, to listen without having anything to add, to release judgment and offer neutrality, to participate in solutions, to see the good in others, to avoid complaining and be gratful, to open your heart, to smile, to appreciate others’ gifts, to not reflect back another’s anger or frustration, and to exude joy to name a few.

Using positive language that is inspiring is another way to bring light in. For example, if you see someone speaking badly about their own being you can gently point out the power of words to them and reflect back what you see that is more accurate. Authenticity is important when you give words of encouragement because our minds are always on guard for truth. All beings want love and want to know they matter in some way. By maintaining a supportive presence and using words that uplift, it is possible to build a foundation for greatness. Because I am a healer sometimes I can see needs for assistance. A woman at a writing conference I was attending almost had to leave for home because of a severe tooth pain she was experiencing. I knew the energy work I practice could rid her of her pain and lower her anxiety, I have seen it work so many times. She experienced relief immediately and was able to stay for the rest of the conference.

Observing animals is a way of seeing compassion in action. Animals are highly psychic and are very connected to humans. I heal animals and had been working on a dog that was supposed to only live two weeks but had regained his vitality. When Jackson did pass 6 months later I was experiencing grief at the local corner store.  I had just heard from his owners  he had passed to spirit when suddenly I felt the head of a dog resting on my thigh basically giving me a dog hug. When I looked down at her she was literally smiling lovingly at me. I told the owner that she knew of my loss of a canine friend. He agreed that Roo was tuned in. This beautiful girl had Lupus and I was able to do some work on her with my healing.

The best part about having a generous heart is that It inspires others to shine and the love radiates out. What can you do to brighten someones day just because? Can you do something nice unconditionally without being found out? Give it a try. IMG_5271

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Roots That Shook-The Roots That Took

A lifetime dream to write a book is happening now. I have had vivid dreams of being published since I was 19 and this ever present inner knowingness about writing. However even with that lucidity it never felt real.

My many years of journals, a voluminous presence was the visual pinch to say that, yes I am a writer. I had this same awakening with music a few years back. Though I was always a musician, singing everywhere I went, it took my soul awhile to give me permission. I finally became internally qualified somehow.

A recent threat and related frustrations and distractions of  the pending eviction from my apartment of 17 years has somehow surprisingly freed a boldness and fierceness in me that has been laying dormant. I’m leaving for India soon, an avoided dream. I think planning the trip to India was the catalyst for all things small to no longer work. The joy is, I will now be incorporating these travel adventures into this book proposal that’s due tomorrow. Two, two, two, dreams in one.

I have been working with a special modality called Pranashakthi that has altered me in amazing ways and has given me a fresh look at what energy is and can do for every type of issue or ailment. My faith and trust in this path is solid.  I am gifted students, and people who need me so perfectly orchestrated, it is in itself a fascinating story. Pranashakthi must be known for the benefits it brings which are many but in a few words, “to remove suffering”. This gift of energy really needs a voice.

My presence has recently been restructured as it relates to societal conditioning and my lens feels clearer. I am calmer within now and trust more often.  What I have unearthed in myself may act as a catalyst for others to validate their own experiences of shifting times and maybe we can all be set free to be our authentic and powerful selves together.  I feel that through testimony of what I have seen and how my life unfolds it may be of service in some way.

I now know why the song of Kristen Hersh called Houdini Blues resonates so strongly with me. The words are –

“Oh no don’t you put me in that box. You know what you can do with those locks. bet your life I’ll come crawling out again. You’ll have to deal with me then. You’ll hear me in the wind. “

I have started a Facebook page for the writing a book adventure. It’s called Carol Whitney Pranashakti Adventures. Like it if you like it!

Pranashakthi Book- What Do You Think?

Pranashakthi is ancient knowledge revealed to my Guru Shri Yogacharya Arun Kumarji. By grace through his teachings it has touched my life deeply and personally. The book I’m writing will highlight my journey in aiding people and animals to overcome physical and mental issues. It will also discuss how teaching has opened my heart.  The notable difference that sets Pranashakthi Mahavidya apart from other avenues to healing is that it operates with infinite dimensions to work in miraculous ways with the intuition of the person who is sending it.

I need some help brainstorming on who would be the audience for such a book. Some ideas I have are that nurses, doctors, therapists, physical therapists, yoga teachers, chiropractors, and bodyworkers. These people could benefit as it amplifies healing that may be already occurring. Current light workers may appreciate the strength Pranashakthi carries. People facinated with medical intuition would enjoy this book.

Vets, animal lovers, dog handlers, dog breeders and those who own horses should also be included as readership because I specialize in animal healings. Animals are very receptive to assistance in the same way they see when healing is needed. Benefits to animals I have seen are notable because they are so receptive.

My musical friends in the bhakti community, out of knowing might be interested in my book just out of curiosity.  Musicians have come to me with vocal cord issues it also works for stage fright, and musical related injuries.  My musical circle of friends is the most rapidly growing aspect of my life and are such sweet and supportive souls so thereby a possible avenue of readership. I am not attached to this aspect  but have to write a proposal which requires me to consider this.

Students of mine and people I have worked on who have been the recipient of less pain or a resolved problems would most likely be interested in the details of how the modality can work and how it was discovered. Since a book has not to my knowledge been written on Pranashakthi, my Guru could refer interested students to the book. I could create a workbook on the first level class but it would have to be just available just to those who have studied from a Guruji authorized Pranashakthi teacher so perhaps an ebook to come later. This is a tradition requiring direct transmission of the knowledge.

This book writing process appears to require some objectivity. Any ideas of avenues of readership are appreciated. My purpose of writing this book is to raise awareness to what is possible energetically, to shine light on the reality of the strength of healing with energy and to specifically spread awareness of Pranashakthi so that suffering can be removed from peoples lives. Remote healings are real and the more of us who remember how to use this the better for us all. All of us have innate abilities to heal.
