Lotus Healing Seva Group (Kenya) held two camps at the same time on 4th July 2018!
As we have been doing for the past 6 years, we held our annual Reiki training camps for the girls of the Hawkers Market Girls Centre. Six girls completed Reiki 2 with Mamta Advani and three girls completed Reiki 1 with Anuradha Nath.
All the girls showed focus and commitment to share their gift of healing with the patients of Faraja Cancer Support Centre every week.
A big thank you to our member Shariffa Keshavjee for affording us the premises for conducting these trainings!
The Lotus Healing Seva Group has been sending Reiki to Puneet Punjabi since the last couple of years. We are delighted at his progress! Please read on for his mother Sangeeta Punjabi LHSG India member’s account of his recovery.
We will continue sending Puneet Reiki, with the full confidence that it will help in his complete healing!
Puneet had a fall from 30 Feet height and resulted in a L1 – burst spine fracture,…. undergone a spinal surgery on April 11,2016.
He was semi paralyzed …. lower part of his body and also has a neurogenic bladder.
It was a shock for all of us as he had undergone an open heart surgery in Sept 2015 for Thoraic Anuresym .
Two major surgeries in 6 months was very traumatic for all.
Rehabilitation program taught him how to take care of himself from what is remaining with him.
Besides his allopathic medication we started with Homeopathic and Ayurvedic medicine also.
The trauma , depression and health issues was so severe that even 1% of healing was not to be ignored.
So even healing music and Archangels came to our rescue.
I myself have been attuned to all 3 degrees of Reiki and I do healing also. All the symbols were working 24/7 for him.
Aunty Kamal & Monica started group absent healing for Puneet and later I joined this LHSG.
Reiki is a very simple process, but usually produces quite profound effects. It creates deep relaxation and helps the body release stress and tension.
Reiki has brought with it a much sought after ray of brightness and cheer, of resurrected hope and faith, by gently and steadily bringing Puneet on the road to recovery.
Reiki helped him clear his mind and improved focus as he felt grounded & centered.
Nothing is impossible in the hands of the Divine Power.
Reiki accelerated the body’s self-healing ability as he started to return to his natural state.
The highest energy is the Healer of all diseases, the Greatest Physician of all , with healing Hands that bring health and succour.
Reiki helped dissolving his energy blocks and promoted natural balance between mind, body& spirit.
This Divine energy has lifted up Puneet onto the path that leads to physical resuscitation and well being. Helps spiritual growth and emotional cleansing.
It is only Divine power that can deliver us this unfailing help.
Let us continue to send Reiki and keep Puneet in sacred place till he reaches his Perfect health.
He is out of wheelchair and off from walker …. now walking on crutches and I can visualize that his foot drop is healed and so his bladder.
He is gaining strength and does his exercise and yoga daily.
He is out of his depression and leading a normal spiritual life by meditating and pushing his boundaries to limitless!!!
We have to be in Gratitude and keep thanking the divine energy for the greatest gift of all times.
Forgiveness is an important requisite to enjoy true peace in life. But the emotions that rule our life like hatred, anger, resentment are some of the greatest impediments to our forgiving and our ego does the honours when it comes to our reluctance to ask for forgiveness. Equipping ourselves with tools to cross these hurdles to happiness is a crucial need of the day.
On 7th June 2018, Lotus Healing Seva Group’s Founder Member Monica Gokaldas, assisted by Cooky Vora LHSG member, held a workshop on forgiveness called Ho’oponopono, a Hawaiian method of Forgiveness introduced to the west by Morrneh Simeona, for cancer patients, their care givers, and therapists and volunteers of Faraja Cancer Support Trust in Nairobi, Kenya. We have been carrying out this work annually at the Centre, with the kind support of the directors of Faraja.
Please read on for her account and do watch the slide show.
On the cold morning of Thursday, June 14, 2018 Cooky and I reached at FarajaCancerCare, Kenya on Shivachi Road and excitedly set up the room where we were to conduct the workshop. This was the fifth year consecutive that we were doing this workshop at this venue for Cancer patients, their care givers, therapists and volunteers at Faraja.
Despite a slight technical hitch with the projector we began the session by around 9.15am as people were still pouring in. I started off with introduction of the topic, explaining the WHYs, WHATs and HOWs about the significance of Ho’oponopono – the Hawaiian technique of forgiveness. We had 22 people who attended this workshop including a few members from the LHSG as well. It was encouraging to see the attendees interacting and expressing their views and experiences as that gave me a better confidence at conducting it. Although I had co conducted this workshop earlier with KamalTolia in the past – this was my third solo one to date.
The forgiveness exercises were quite exciting as they all looked forward to going through the session after a refreshments break. Some of them even cried out and felt much lighter having practiced the forgiveness. My challenge was to explain to someone who had recently lost someone very close due to a third person’s fault in an accident and she wasn’t willing to forgive the third person. However, she gradually understood the need to forgive the person to release herself from the grief and guilt of witnessing the accident as she forgave herself first.
Teaching at Faraja has always been a pleasant experience as I feel a connection with the place and patients whom we often meet during the Wednesday Healing Sessions. ArwaKapacee has been very helpful in organizing the event and in her absence the preparation was well handled by NehaChoudhary as well. I express my gratitude to the Faraja team for their efforts at the same.
