LHSG 14th Anniversary Celebrations Seva No. 8

If the secret to living a ‘life’ is to live for others, then on 18th January 2020, Lotus Healing Seva Group were privileged to know this secret as they gave Reiki Level 1 training to 23 children of Std 8, and 8 teachers of the Thika School for the Visually impaired. Most of them were completely or partially visually impaired. A very few of teachers could actually see. 

It doesn’t take brains to know that the whole method of teaching had to be adjusted to take their disability into account, for example, the pictures of the Reiki Masters had to be taken individually to each child so he could hold them close to his eyes, their hands had to be physically guided to each Reiki position, etc. But they were smart. Once shown, they did a sterling job of remembering and very soon became super healers!

Healing self was followed by healing others, all done with serious concentration, and absolute commitment.

LHSG had sponsored the lunch for the whole school of 450 children. It consisted of rice, green grams, and cabbage. We also gave a packet of milk to each child.

At the end, they all promised to do Reiki every day on themselves, and to repeat the 5 Principles of Reiki. A number of them shared how well the magic of Reiki had already worked on them. Their testimonies are in the videos below.

A couple of days later, my joy was multiplied when the Deputy Head John Musau informed me on the phone that he and the children were feeling more relaxed, less shy, and more confident … all as a result of them doing the Reiki daily on themselves!

The LHSG Sevaks that were privileged to do this extraordinary seva were: Sheela Shah, Monica Gokaldas, Sonal Patel, Bhavna Baga, Baiju Vora, Pratima Dutt, Shariffa Keshavjee, Laveena Keswani, Neena Sehgal and I, Kamal Tolia.

We are very grateful to the Headmistress of the School Margaret Njuguna who kindly gave her permission for us to conduct the workshop in the school and to the Deputy Head John Musau for his support in planning and executing the Reiki workshop.

Gratitude to God and the Universe for affording us this golden opportunity to reach out to others that face far more challenges than we have or will ever know!

LHSG 14th Anniversary Celebrations Seva No. 7

We are sleeping well. We do not have fear anymore. No more nightmares.  No headaches, stomach aches and back aches. We don’t fall sick anymore. These testimonies from the girls of Talia Agler Girls Shelter were validated by the Nurse-Manager Agnes. They music to our ears, and we knew Reiki had weaved its magic yet again!

Through the continued kind permission of TAGS Founder, Mrs Edith Morogo, Lotus Healing Seva Group has been associated with the institution for the past 5 years. We have regular Reiki training camps for the girls that are housed in this shelter. These girls come from traumatic backgrounds. They are victims of abandonment, abuse and trafficking for labour and sex. With Reiki in their lives, they slowly but surely get healed at a very deep level.

On 30th December 2019, LHSG Founder Member Monica Gokaldas and I, Kamal Tolia, accompanied by a friend Anju Mullick visited the shelter with a view to finding out how the girls were faring with Reiki, and to treat them to an end of year Chrsitmas lunch treat of Pizza, Crisps, Biscuit and Ice cream.

They did us proud as they told us that they practiced Reiki regularly. They also gave Reiki to Anju, and she was amazed at the Reiki healing power in their hands.

All has been captured in the video below. Please do watch.

Wishing all a Happy, Healthy and Safe 2020!

LHSG 14th Anniversary Celebrations Seva No. 6

A home for Children aged 6 – 17 years that have been in conflict with the law, which may just be being caught for stealing sweet potatoes from a neighbour’s field, or for hawking, or for not going to school. A home which also houses children that have been abused by family and relatives, children that have been abandoned, children that have run away from home, and …… children trafficked for labour or for sex from the neighbouring countries.

Such a home is The Nairobi Children’s Remand Home, set in the suburb of Lower Kabete in Nairobi. Lotus Healing Seva Group has been volunteering in this home with Reiki healing Seva since January 2019. This has been possible because of the kind permission of the Manager Daniel K Njama and the excellent support of the Deputy Manager Reverand Gudah. Gratitude also goes to Erastus Kwako and Juliette Gikunda, who have been a great help every week in getting the room and the children ready. Without their help, it would have been very difficult for us to continue with our voluntary work.

Each time we have been visiting the home, it tears our heart out to know and see what these poor children have to suffer in their young life. We hope that with the Reiki healing we help in lessening their emotional and physical pain.

On 18th December, after the Reiki session, we had a small Christmas and end of year celebration with them. We treated them to cakes, milk, bananas and mandazi (a Kenyan sweet bread), which they loved very much and which we have captured in the video below.

And so we completed a year of Reiki healing at the Remand Home and look forward to

continuing our Reiki work in the coming year. 

Thank you!

Best wishes for the New Year
