My father is an ardent devotee of Lord Hanuman and Neeb Karoli Maharaj as a result Hanumanji and Neeb Karoli Baba Temple ; Hanuman Setu was our playground on Tuesdays. Yes the same Neeb Karoli Baba , Maharaj Ji who was visited by Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg in Kainchi Ashram , we were brought up listening his hyms and his magical experiences 🙂
My Father dedicated himself in his service and praise ; here is a lovely Vinay Chalisa dedicated for him.
In Lucknow the 4 Tuesdays of the Month of June (Jyeshtha) is celebrated as Bada Mangal .On the roadside corporate houses, shopkeepers and residents erect canopies to offer free unlimited chilled sherbet, water and food to all passer-bys, blaring chants dedicated to Lord Hanuman can be heard in all Hanuman temples. Evening is the time for children to rejoice in fairs that are put up around the temples for the devotees. Muslims in large numbers put up stalls to offer water and food to the devotees in the scorching summer heat of Lucknow.
This festival that is unique to Lucknow is the biggest example of secularism and cross-religious beliefs of people of Lucknow. Innumerable examples of Hindus constructing mosques and Muslims constructing temples can be found in Lucknow. Lucknow till date is a peaceful city that has had no history of any communal violence or has shown any intolerance toward opposite regions.
This is how we understood loving ,sharing and caring in childhood.
In India most of the families take out a portion of food for poor and even cows. I saw my mother doing the same and it always felt nice as we had lots of street vendors as visitors regularly coming to our door to ask for food water and also daily essentials. So giving was a way of life because both my parents had an understanding about the hardships of life. My parents always emphasized on service towards the people who took care of us our house helps, regular street vendors and we also had fakirs and saints coming for regular donations. My dad financed religious trips for them. They use to sing praises and give blessings to my Dad aloud , I still have those voices fresh in my ears. Once I had gone out to give a blanket to the Fakir he asked for my name and since then started taking my name as soon he entered our lane.
“Sargam Bitiya Ka Bhala Ho….Babuji Ka Bhala ho” It was his way of giving blessings ; as a child it was so fascinating.
The amazing value system that was silently absorbed as a child some where was out of focus once I left for college to Mumbai for pursuing my dreams and I got lost in the madness of earning a living.
Then in 2010 -2012 when I was struggling with everything in my life , I started feeling my life was too shallow there was nothing worthwhile. I was just not happy with anything.. ….and then after a wait of 2 years Pranic Healing happened and it brought my focus back to LIFE.
Life is much more beautiful and intense when we live with a purpose, a vision which is much much bigger and great than just ME , I Myself.
So When Master Choa Says Manifest Your Greatness! You cannot just sit and do nothing you have to constantly live his vision and also help strengthen his mission.

I recently conducted a super successful workshop on Gratitude, this was a unique workshop with Meditation, Blessings and Energy Healing as the core of the gratitude practice daily for 21 Days.
Some call it luck, some call it God/Source/Universe, but I call it GRACE.
You can call anything you want but there is a guiding force that shows up in all of our lives. And the more you acknowledge it, the more it appears. The key to grace is being able to acknowledge the presence of grace in your life and this can be done through gratitude and the ability to count your blessings even in the worst of your times.
To understand the power of grace, you must understand that life is not about me; it’s about we. Anytime you do something that is greater than yourself, you get to a different level of insight. Your experience is enhanced. Life is really about creating meaning – and meaning doesn’t come from what you get; it comes from what you give.
So if you have done the first two steps in life and are looking for that luck factor to transform your life then this workshop is for you. In these 21 days we worked on Celebrating grace by being open to movements of grace in our life. The results and expereinces were amazinglyawesomenascious.
Sharing few testimonials of the workshop:
Gratitude has been described as the most trans-formative force in the universe. Now is the perfect time to ‘wake up’ to this powerful vibration as we navigate through energies of the new paradigm. When you learn to fully express gratitude you can experience “Breakthrough Living”.
Benefits of the workshop
- If you want profound shifts in your life, and you are willing to choose gratitude to create space for these shifts to occur, you will benefit from this workshop.
- If you would like to experience less struggle in life, and have more joy, prosperity and flow, you will benefit from this workshop.
- If you want to create a healing experience in your life, with yourself and with others, you will benefit from this workshop.
Look out for the next workshop on http://www.sargammishra.com
The Power Stations
Chakra is a Sanskrit term meaning “wheel,” which refers to wheel-like whirling energy centers or vortices of energy that play vital roles in the proper functioning of the body.
“Major Chakras or Energy Centers are actually major acupuncture points. Chakras are very important parts of the energy body.”
Master Choa Kok Sui
These chakras are basically located in the surface of the etheric body of man, with a stem and a root in the body, each having a specific role in our system.
The functions of the chakras are not just confined to physical functions; they also control and affect the psychological and spiritual conditions of a person.
Just as there are vitals and minor internal organs in the body, the energy body has several major, minor and mini chakras that control and energize these organs altogether. Being a source of energy or Prana, when these chakras malfunction, they adversely affect the vital internal organs in the body. This phenomenon is called disease.
While the major chakras control, energize and are responsible for the proper functioning of major internal organs, minor and mini chakras supply energy to less important parts of the visible physical body.
The psychological state of a person is also dependent on the condition of various chakras. Weaknesses such as laziness, irritability, worry, forgetfulness and strengths such as productivity, compassion, creativity, intelligence and intuition are all products of the chakras, which can be purified or further improved.
Some chakras are also sites or centers of psychic faculties that if activated will led to the development of certain psychic powers; such as the Crown chakra that is the center for higher intuition and divine oneness.
The average size of the chakras basically depends on the evolutionary development of a person. The bigger the size, the more intelligent, advanced and evolved the person. Arhatic Yoga in this case is an advanced spiritual technology that serves as a medium to accelerate this evolutionary process.
“When quite undeveloped they appear as small circles about two inches in diameter, glowing dully in the ordinary man; but when awakened and vivified they are seen as blazing, coruscating whirlpools, much increased in size and resembling miniature suns.”
C. W. Leadbeater
In traditional literature, mainly seven chakras have been introduced while sometimes you may have read about 9, 11 or even 12 major chakras in spiritual textbooks and esoteric sciences as well. According to Master Choa Kok Sui, all are correct. The key word is only!
“They have never mentioned that there are only seven chakras. The key word is only. The problem is that the students or readers assume that there are only seven chakras. This is an assumption without any basis… The student must remember that truth is dynamic, not static. This is the basis behind progress. One must be ready to discard lower truth for higher truth.”
Master Choa Kok Sui
In Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna mentions about the city with nine gates. Upanishads refers to a city with eleven gates, which correspond to the 11 major chakras. In Kabbala, there exist ten energy centers with one hidden center that makes a total of eleven.
Grand Master Choa Kok Sui through his books and teachings reveals the existence of eleven major chakras together with one more chakra; the 12th Chakra.
In alternative medicine and complementary therapies including Pranic Healing these chakras are basically being treated to improve a wide range of physical and psychological ailments. In such systems, the physical and psychological function of the chakras and how they affect ailments is the area of focus.
To know more about the chakras and their functions, you are encouraged to read a book by Grand Master Choa Kok Sui with the same title.

Most people have NO IDEA where to even BEGIN when it comes to getting clear on who they are, what they are all about, where they are going and how they’re going to get there…
It’s like that passage in Alice in Wonderland…
“Cheshire Cat,” said Alice, “Would you please tell me which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat.
“I don’t much care where…” said Alice.
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.
“But I want to get SOMEWHERE,” Alice said.
“Oh, you’re sure to do that,” said the Cat, “if you walk long enough.”
Don’t be that person.
Because every minute that you’re not on your Life Path bringing your life’s vision into fruition is a HUGE loss… not just for you, but for humanity as a whole.
Depression I heard this word when I was a small child one of our close relative was visiting a psychiatrist regularly as she was being treated for depression. As a child I understood when people are really really sad they get this ailment called “Depression” I could not understand then how the elders could be so sad they had to go to a doctor.Me and my sister every night used to get scolded because we used to burst into laughter while discussing our day sometimes a friend’s parent behavior sometimes we used to mimic our school teachers and then just end up rolling on the bed. Every night the house use to echo of giggles and laughs sometimes it was for no reason just by seeing each other we could pass on the currents of mischief and burst in laughter. As children smiling and laughing is our natural state however when one grows up we start looking for reasons for being happy and depend on others for making us happy. So instant of the constant “Happiness” becomes a variable having dependencies on people and situations and when there is a dependency then there are rejections, failures, heartbreaks, sorrows and sadness giving depression an entry into our lives.
A study by the Government of India shows that one out of every five Indians is suffering from a mental disorder. In fact, that places every family at severe risk of multiple issues such as chronic depression, suicidal tendencies and work related stress. 50 per cent of corporate India is under chronic stress with 30 per cent having problems such as addiction and marital discord, and 20 per cent suffering from depression. That effectively means that a rise in depression is a very real threat that could affect the country’s denizens and economy over a period of time.According to the World Health Organisation report in 2011, one out of seven people in India i.e 15 per cent of Indian population was depressed and in 2015, one out of five people in India i.e 20 per cent of Indian population is depressed that showcases an alarming increase in rates of depression by five per cent of the population in just a span of four years putting us all in grave situation.
Source: 26,00,00,000 Indians suffer from mental health disorders –
These are alarming figures with nearly 1 in every 5 person going through a mental health disorder. Earlier the government and also the people never took Depression as a serious ailment but today it has come up in such a big way that no way we can escape from it. Now people are talking openly about it just like the heart ailments. As a Pranic Healer I have been working with several patients going through anxiety and depression and as I understand this is not something that can be worked only at a body or mind level it has to do with Body Mind and Soul healing.
There’s no one proven way that people recover from depression, and it’s different for everyone. However, today there are a range of treatments and health professionals who can be of help.The main medical treatment for depression is antidepressant medication. while there is no simple explanation as to how it works, i have found most of my clients on heavy dose of antidepressants leading to slower metabolism and too much lethargy and sleep.
Psychological treatments (also known as talking therapies) can help you change your thinking patterns and improve your coping skills so you’re better equipped to deal with life’s stresses and conflicts.There are several types of effective psychological treatments for depression, as well as different delivery options. Some people prefer to work one on one with a professional, while others get more out of a group environment. A growing number of online programs, or e-therapies, are also available. These therapies can help but it needs to be coupled with an inner transformation “If you are causing depression to yourself, it means you are able to generate a substantial amount of intense emotions and thoughts, but in the wrong direction. If you don’t have very strong emotions or very intense thoughts about something, you cannot get depressed. It is just that you are generating thoughts and emotions that work against you, not for you. So you are strong enough to cause depression to yourself.” Sadhguru
So if you understand one simple thing that whatever thoughts and emotions you create if they are not adding to your well being and are not helping you feel better you need to drop them. This can be done by practicing mindfulness in daily life. When a person starts living life either in the past or in the future then it is a sure shot way of creating stress and anxiety in life.
Pranic Healing quickly removes stress, anxiety, depression and fears by cleansing the energy field that surrounds the body.The word “Prana” in Pranic Healing, is another name for our “Vital life force Energy”, and our thoughts and emotions can affect this “Vital energy” keeping us well balanced and in good health, or making us ill.
The practitioners job is to re balance, harmonize and strengthen our body’s energetic defense system.It is well known by Holistic Healing Practitioners that physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual imbalances start in the energy field.
Now if our energy field which surrounds the body is healthy, it can offer us protection from negativity in our life, which over time can cause us to become unwell at any level, physically, mentally, and emotionally.
So how does it work?
In the healing session the practitioner will cleanse the negative used up energy, which has blocked or depleted your energy field.After the body has been “Cleansed” it is then “Energised” the affected organs, Chakras, or the injured or diseased part , re balancing and strengthening your body’s energetic defense system,This allows the natural healing process to take place.
In addition to receiving Pranic Psychotherapy sessions, it is suggested that clients who are healing from depression should also incorporate the following (this will greatly accelerate your healing process):
1. Meditation on Twin Hearts with Psychological Healing. Do you have 30 minutes a day to bless the earth and receive psychological healing? Pranic Healing Founder, Master Choa Kok Sui states that this meditation is an ‘anti-depressant’, and has many beneficial effects. All you have to do is sit and receive. (1)
2. Service. Is there a way you can give back to your community? Is there a group or charity that you would like to support? When we give – we receive. In Pranic Healing we recommend 3-4 hours of service a week. This will help offset any troubles or ‘rough patches’ in one’s life allowing for healing and greater harmony. It may happen immediately; it may take some time. Continue to do weekly service as long as you can. Do not give up or procrastinate.
3. How depleted has the body been? If severe, then the energy body really needs to be recharged (this will strengthen the physical body). Here are a few tips:
a) Stand outside for a few moments, form the intent to absorb the healing prana or energy from the Sun. Please note: this is very powerful and should only be done once a week for 10 minutes max.
b) Do you have trees close by? If so rest, read, meditate under the trees. Trees give off an excess amount of prana. You can recharge greatly by spending time amongst them.
c) Find Chinese or Korean ginseng. This is extremely recharging. The effects of the ginseng can last up to 8 hours. Make sure you get good quality ginseng. If you have taken Level 1 Pranic Healing, scan the ginseng to see which has the most prana. (2)
4. Increase your will power and exercise! I’ve talked many times about the benefit of physical exercise in this blog so I’ll just touch on it briefly. When we experience depression, we need to do lots of physical exercise to flush out the negative energy. Find a style of exercise that you will enjoy and do it regularly.
5. Lavender Salt baths. 2 cups salt with 10 drops of Lavender oil in water. Soak for 20 minutes, rinse off. Repeat several times a week. *Use normal table salt, sea salt, dead sea salt, as it has the needed energetic properties for this type of healing.

“Your children will reflect your own shadows and unhealed inner child. It is important to heal your inner child to live a fulfilling life and raise happy and loving children”
The first 6 years of a child’s life is of utmost significance because they pick up their belief systems from their primary caregivers and by silently observing their environment.So you can say a child develops the psychological blueprint during the initial 6 years of life and it determines the emotional response of the child for the rest of life. The child develops the capabilities of handling life situations and also develops a sense of self during these initial years. The foundation of ‘self confidence, self worth , good self image and emotional well being are all laid during this time. It is said that children do not learn what they are taught instead they learn by observing how the parents deal with their own life and situations. The behavior of the primary caregivers (parents) with the child determines how he or she perceives the world.The relationship with our parents and caretakers and their relationships with each other is the single most important connection a child establishes. This also transforms into their definition of LOVE. This is what they seek out in their intimate relationships once they grow up. Based on these belief they start creating their reality and manifesting people and situations in life.
I am inspired to write this blog specially after the super successful one on one sessions during the 21 Days of Prosperity Healing event with participation from 5 Countries and nearly 15 cities within India it was such a pleasure and privilege to be with a group of 80 amazing people from varied walks of life.
The event has several worth sharing experiences but the most beautiful part of this event was the one to one connect for healing blockages/inner child healing sessions , the healing sessions were conducted over call due to people being in different time zones my calendar was blocked from morning till late evening for one week. This was a 30-45 minute connect which started as an initiative to work on the prosperity blocks but once we connected I got the opportunity to work on various aspects of life where participants gave me permission to work with their baby self and shared the broken parts of their life. It has been one of the most enriching Healing Event of my life and I am so grateful to the participants for sharing their life with me. During the healing sessions I could understand how people were continuously creating same scenarios in their life either in their work life, personal life and intimate relationships mirroring their early upbringing and .
I had earlier written on the same subject as “Parenting Our Emotional Self ” with a beautiful do it yourself practice by Thich Naht Hahn which many of you loved. Please find the link Parenting Our Emotional Self if you want to read it. However as I do more and more healing and grow and evolve myself my understanding of life and techniques of healing also evolve. Here I am describing few of my amazing healing sessions conducted recently. I will be adding this to my offering so feel free to book an appointment and experience the Inner Child Healing.
I got the opportunity to use Pranic Healing along with Psychotherapy and Inner Child Healing during these sessions. My first session was with a lady who is a senior healer and spiritual practitioner herself the healing was related with her long term physical problem and she wanted help healing any energy imbalance/block related to it. We started the process and in 30-45 minutes of healing and consultation there was a shift in the pain associated with the problem she was able to feel a connect with her own being and we could identify the root cause of the issue which was related to an unhealed aspect of her past. Her testimonial was beautiful and then I got more requests for doing the one on one sessions. In 6 days I connected with nearly 55 people and use the same methodology and the results were superb.
Another amazing healing was done with a lady who had been subjected to a traumatic childhood experience and was facing the shadows of it in her love relationships. When we started working on the block there was a lot of self worth issues and lack of self confidence once the session started and she was feeling in safe zone we started working on the inner child who was still living the same fear of her abusive childhood and unknowingly due to these fears she was manifesting people and situations that were mirroring more of this shadow aspect. In about 45-50 minutes of healing she could develop a bond with her inner child and understood that as she has abandoned the inner child within her she was experiencing a deep pain and loneliness in life. The pain and loneliness could not be fulfilled from external relationships as it was something she was creating within. I was so touched myself with the healing experience once we completed the healing and started with the affirmations there was so much love flowing from her that even I had tears in my eyes. These were tears of joy from both of us. The session ended with deep gratitude from my end to all the invisible helpers who were helping these healing through me.
Another beautiful session was conducted with a business man who was doing well in his life but wanted to be able to move ahead in life and be more successful financially,.The block he identified was procrastination. We had an interesting discussion around how and why people procrastinate even important decisions in life and then he opened up on his fear of losing money and also the mirroring of the attitude picked up from his primary caregiver (procrastination).He had a fear associated with business and failure as he had seen his father struggle with debt and bankers. The event happened nearly 40 years back but the emotional fear about losing money and the pain associated with it was still residing within him. He himself is a very passionate person but loses spark related to his business matters. Interesting conversations right..how people unconsciously live on borrowed beliefs for years.
Below are few more testimonials from the event and I am also adding the do it yourself technique for doing the inner child work. However when we work with a healer the ealer can results are more profound as the healer can help raise your vibrations quickly and can walk you through the dark areas of your past with ease and non judgement.
The Inner Child Healing Approach
Sit in a quiet place where no one can disturb you for 30-45 minutes you can play some soothing music for 5-10 minutes and then take few deep breaths to normalize the heart beat and get in a rythm and harmony with your being. Once you are at ease imagine yourself to be connected with a huge source of energy (like an ocean of golden light)on the top of your crown chakra (top of head) and imagine roots of light connecting you to mother earth. This is your circuit. Now breathe in through this source of energy and when you breathe out just imagine your body relax and all your subtle bodies(aura) expand. This exercise can be practice anytime to relax do it for 30-45 seconds till you feel at ease.
Identify the block (habit/pattern/psychological issue) that you want to work on
The first step is to identify the block you want to work on this can be identified as a trigger that causes you to breakdown in tough situations. A self sabotaging belief that constantly tells you “You are not….Enough”. A habit or pattern in life which is no more adding value to your life.
- Understand the emotion attached to this block (habit/pattern/psychological issue) identified in Step
This step helps you to identify the underlying emotional response of your system this may be accompanied with a discomfort in the physical body like a sensation in the stomach (anxiety) a feeling of block in the back heart, front heart (sadness, fear of being lonely) or anger resentment felt near the solar plexus area.
Once you have experienced the emotion/feeling be with it for sometime so that you are aware of it.
4. Step 4 is where everything begins to change! Meeting your Inner Child
Once you understand the emotion and have been with it for sometime just go down the memory lane and remember the times when you have felt the same. The reason would have been different but feeling and emotions just the same. So for example a feeling of being rejected post a breakup can feel the same painful as when you parents rejected you because they were expecting you to behave in a particular way.This could be the early memories where you picked up the emotional response.
Now picture yourself as a small child and re experience the event and show compassion to this inner child who has had first experience with the feeling and does not like being in this situation. Try to hold this baby self in the same way a mother/parent holds a newborn baby. Picture the image of your pained baby self imagine wrapping him/her in a warm blanket, being held with very loving care closely to your heart, your chest, as you extend it very sincere compassion from your heart center.Just be with this baby self till you feel safe and secure with your own baby self.
5. Taking your Inner Child to a Safe Zone
Once you feel secure and connected with your baby self after the step 4. mentally (or verbally) say to the baby self I that you have grown up and are capable of taking of this inner child within you. There is no need to seek approval , seek love outside instead you are there to nurture your baby self from all that was deprived and ensure that life is going to be all about following your joy. and you promise to care and be with it whenever you feel your inner child is throwing tantrums.

“The best metric of child poverty may not have to do with income but with how often a child is spoken and read to.”
Amidst our hectic life style and a quest to chase our dreams we sometimes ignore our responsibility as a parent. Having very little time for communicating and playing with our children we find it easy to introduce technical gadgets to our children in their early years. This is the time when they are absorbing everything as a sponge. A child by age 4 will hear nearly a million words and more this is how he she will form their vocabulary and learn to express themselves. So every time you speak to your child you are giving them words and expressions to process which will become the foundation of their behavior.
It is important to raise awareness and my articles and counselling have been a medium. There are so many excuses we can hear and most of them feel it is difficult to keep the children away from the media and technical gadgets. This is actually true because we ourselves have indulged in them and life without TV and social media is impossible. We do not want to miss our favorite serials (daily soaps) or avoid listening to romantic and catchy numbers where lyrics are just not making any sense.
Raising a child is a conscious choice and a 20 year project at the minimum and once you have taken it up it is your duty to deliver it to the best you can. Most of us feel when babies are 0-6 months they do not understand what is happening. Instead the child is learning at a phenomenal rate daily , the brain activity is happening not only when they are awake but also during the REM (Rapid Eye movement) sleep time. They are constantly accessing the environment they are growing up in absorbing energies being emitted from all the people near them. They are sensitive to the oceans of thoughts and emotions in their environment.
Babies are like wet clay they have the potential to be anything but they are dependent on the environment set up by parents and the way we handle them plays a major role in their making.
Conscious parenting is a choice…a choice that we have to make everyday.
