Reiki Level 2 Camp in For People Touched By Cancer

In March 2018, LHSG Kenya members Sheela Shah, Anuradha Nath and Shariffa Keshavjee had introduced the first level of Reiki healing to cancer survivors, their care givers and people associated with Faraja Cancer Support Centre. On Thursday 17th May, they took them to Reiki level 2.

Their story follows.

Thank you for your support.

Today’s Reiki II camp at Faraja had an attendance of 8 ladies. Assisted by our lovely nightingale, Anuradha, we eventually started at 9.35 am. When asked about their experiences after Reiki I, the ladies were only too happy to share. Josephine shared how she felt very good about herself every day; Amy (from the Ashram old people’s Home) felt she was more understanding and patient towards others and similarly the other ladies reiterated how good they felt with themselves being able to help others and themselves with Reiki. This was very encouraging to hear. With that positive note, I started with the introduction of the symbols. Initially the ladies found the symbols challenging to learn but with practice they quickly came through. Then after the attunement, self-healing followed without any hiccups.

We then stopped for a well needed 20 minute coffee break. During the break, one of the ladies shared how she had felt a lot of warmth around her abdomen when she had lain down on a Thursday (as per our instruction) to receive our distant healing. This experience proved to her distant healing really worked.

The second half went smoothly with relevant questions being asked every now and then. The ladies found all the various methods of distant healing exciting and quite incredible at times. Anuradha and I assured them that all these methods were tried and tested with real positive results. When the group healing exercise was done, they were amazed to experience the power of group healing. As we came to the end, group photos were taken and gratitude was exchanged. We managed to finish just about on time.

Thank you Anuradha for taking the photographs and for your indispensable assistance.

Love and light.

Reiki Seva For The Community

The seva of giving and caring … that was on the agenda of Lotus Healing Seva Kenya Group, Nairobi on 13th May 2018. They gave Free Reiki healing to men, women and children at the Sri Sathya Sai Centre in Nairobi, Kenya. Among the recipients were a few young girls and boys from the surrounding slum areas. It was, as usual a wonderful feeling of giving and giving made more significant because of it being Mother’s Day …

Mother’s Day Seva at Sai Centre

Mother’s day is a big celebration all over the world where mothers are felicitated variously. We at LHSG celebrated the day, May 13, 2018 quite in contrast by expressing our Motherly Care and healing for many in the morning hours of the bright and sunny Sunday. We gathered at the Sri Sathya Sai Centre, Nairobi and whilst setting up the Multi Purpose Hall to our requirement, we were pleasantly greeted by interested healees much before our scheduled time.

Nalina started off giving Reiki to Sujatha Kotamraju, the Vice Chairlady of the organization at 10.30am and there was no moment of pause following that. We were getting interested people pouring in gradually as Kamal guided us to our positions. This event conceptualized by Sujatha and myself, Monica was finally bearing fruits as we started getting positive feedback from the recipients such as a flexible movement instead of numbness of a toe, headache disappearing, pain released and easy movement coming in an elbow, backache and shoulder ache gone, feeling light headed etc.

I was particularly happy at giving reiki to the local Kenyan children and how some of them kept chanting “Om Sai Ram” whilst receiving reiki. These children had no questions but understood very well about the healing energies of Reiki and were amazed at the results. Amongst the Indian crowd too we had some people who were very new to reiki and were overjoyed at the benefits.

The sevaks for this seva were Kamal Tolia, Nalina Rupani, Sheela Shah, Punita Acharya, Pratima Dutt, Anuradha Nath, Vaishali Patel, Dhwani Haria and I Monica Gokaldas. We gave reiki to 38 children and adults and I personally gave reiki to 7 of them. I felt very grateful to have the opportunity of doing this seva.

Mother’s day seva at Sai Centre yesterday couldn’t have gone any better. We had ladies, gentlemen and youngsters who came in good numbers through out the period we were there. It was wonderful to be of help to give healing to one lady that I did who was emotionally very down due to a close relative passing away the previous day. She said she saw purple light when I was healing her crown chakra and a light blue light when I was healing her throat chakra. Not surprising as these are the corresponding colours for these chakras. She said she felt a lot better after the healing and promised to heal herself regularly as she had done all 4 Reiki levels awhile ago. It was also wonderful to give Reiki to the youngsters who had come. They easily dozed off during the healing but were all energised after the session. We finished on time by 1pm. It was gratifying to start off Mother’s day with this lovely seva. ????????

Reiki 1 Camp Faraja

Today the Reiki I camp at Faraja was absolutely brilliant. It was attended by 17 participants with Shariffaji, Anuradha and I. We started by 9.30am, getting straight into what Reiki is all about. The questions were numerous but welcoming for this brought about good understanding of Reiki. Attunement was peaceful and uneventful followed by self-healing which was done well. We broke off for a 20 minutes break and resumed for the second half. Partner healing was carried out enthusiastically. By now everyone could feel the amazing flow of Reiki energy in their hands. The group worked cohesively and it was lovely to witness their joy in healing. Everyone expressed great interest to learn Reiki II very soon.

My gratitude to Shariffaji and Anuradha for their valuable help and support and also to our Lotus family for all the Reiki sent our way today. Immense gratitude to Faraja and team and Reiki for making this camp possible and successful.

Gratitude to Faraja , Sheela, Anuradha for a successfully conducted Reiki camp.

Sheela. …. was clear, concise, focused and most of all patient ….. Patient with tardiness, silence, talkers…… Answering all questions , dissipating doubt.

The energy was high. Everyone received. Then gave too.

As the morning advanced so did the mood, the friendship and camaraderie. Every one was relaxed and energised.

Thank you for the opportunity.

Reiki 1 camp on 4th of April at Satya Sai School went very well. We had 25 students and 2 teachers. All of them were ready and waiting for us as we arrived. In the beginning they were a bit shy but soon became interactive. It was humbling to see their sincerity. They did well in the self-healing and partner healing.

They enjoyed the snacks and lunch sponsored by Lotus Healing Seva group.

Neena was very efficient and helpful throughout the camp and we had a very gratifying day!

Mamta was a super teacher, she included little breathing exercises warm up session after the break, as it was extremely cold out there and also while explaining the five principles she gave them very important life lessons. Overall a very gratifying and learning experience!
