Sathya Sai School Children Advance to Reiki Level 2

On 4th October 2019, LHSG Kenya taught Reiki Level 2 to the Grade 5 Children of Sathya Sai School in Uthiru, Nairobi. They had learned Reiki level 1 more than 6 months ago, so this Level 2 camp was long overdue. The school caters to the educational needs of the poor children in the Uthiru neighbourhood.

LHSG Kenya member Mamta Advani conducted this camp, assisted by LHSG member Neena Gupta. We also donated KSh 5000 to the Sathya Sai school Uthiru Trust.

Do read what Mamta and Neena have to say …..

Today the camp at Uthiru went very well. The children as usual were so sweet and waiting for us …… and very enthusiastic to learn Reiki Level 2 … we had 26 students and 2 teachers., total 28 …it was very smooth and the headmaster brother Sam was very welcoming … want to share a little incident …. It was 12.30 pm, lunch time …..I told them to go for lunch … all the kids left the class room … but one little boy came back …. He asked me if Reiki can bring back dead people … So I told him no .. and why are you asking …. His face dropped ….. I asked him, who did you want back … he said … my mother … it really broke my heart … I hugged him and told him … your mother’s love is always with you … a very touching moment …. And this little boy ….. you will be surprised to see in the video, how he was making his symbols in the air … when we told them to draw the symbols in the air … he was the one who drew them in the air with folded hands … and he knew all the answers … he was very much in touch with what is Reiki … he did all the healing and everything so well … all these experiences were soooo touching …. We really don’t know what is going on in the hearts and minds of these little children …. At the end, Brother Sam told us to come up and speak to the Grade 8 parents who had come for a meeting … he suggested that we open their minds to the idea of Reiki … on the whole, a very good day … Thank you for this beautiful seva opportunity ….

Reiki Level 1 Training in Gujarati!

Lotus Healing Seva Group (Kenya) was privileged to conduct a Reiki level 1 Training camp in Gujarati! This was a first for us!

I was approached by Prafulla Ganatra, of the Lohana Gujarati community in Nairobi, to train the elderly in her community in Reiki. These beautiful people were aged 65 and above, many of them being in their 70’s and eighties!

The training was spread over two Wednesdays, 2.5 hours each day. This period coincided with the Hindu Shraad period, when our ancestors dimension is closest to our Earth Dimension, and we can do charitable and seva work in their honour, as well as receive their blessings!

It was such a pleasure teaching these men and women who were 26 in number.

Eagerness showed in their faces even as they walked into the hall and took their seats.

One of the ladies had cancelled her travel plans so she could attend the workshop!

They did the Aum and the Gurur Mantra and joined us in our prayers.

They sat in pure meditative poses throughout the attunement.

We knew we had a dedicated group. . Their hands were boiling hot as they healed themselves!

Though some could not reach their back chakras, they did the best they could.

They received the gift of Reiki in total trust and humility!

Of special mention is Lois, who was the helper of one of the elderly ladies in a wheel chair. She didn’t understand Gujarati, but received the attunement willingly, followed the chakra positions, and did the self-healing very satisfactorily.

How much more blessed could one be. . Giving in this period of Shraad to the elderly. . . .

We have surely been blessed by our ancestors.

LHSG Founder member Monica Gokaldas and LHSG member Cooky Vora joined me in this seva. We were also joined by Reiki healers Prafulla Ganatra and Laxmi Vellani.

Our special thanks to the Lohana Community Chairman Bharatbhai Thakrar and the entire Lohana Committee for allowing us to impart the Reiki training to their senior members, and to allow us the use of their hall. And our gratitude to Prafulla Ganatra for making the people interested in Reiki, and for organizing everything.

Monica’s account is next, followed by the slide show and video.

Thank you for your support.

We had a very fulfilling morning teaching Reiki level 1 to 28 elderly people. Unfortunately we had to turn away some people as they came in much later.

It was such a pleasure teaching these elderly as they are so in tune with the spiritual energies. They seemed mesmerized during attunement and some of them despite their age, didn’t fidget even a little bit. They didn’t have doubts or questions and were in total acceptance of what was being taught.

Kamal conducted the teaching in Gujarati and though she doubted her perfection at that, they all gave her full marks for her Gujarati. Prafulla also added her bits to the teaching and it was amazing to see both Prafulla Ganatra and Laxmi Vellani do it all so well despite volunteering at a camp after many years.

My gratitude for the opportunity to do this seva for the aged during our Hindu Pitru Paksh (fortnight in reverence towards our ancestors). It felt like we were (Prafulla, Laxmi, Kamal, Cooky and myself) offering our love and gratitude to our ancestors by sharing our love with these elderly people of our society.

Reiki 1 and Reiki 2 camps at Faraja

On 2th August 2019, LHSG Members Sheela Shah and Cooky Vora conducted a Reiki Level 1 and a Reiki Level 2 camp on 25th August 2019 at Faraja Cancer Support Centre. Please read on for their story.

The Reiki l camp at Faraja today was conducted by our Cooky and I taught the Reiki ll group. The 3 people in my group were 2 girls from HMGC and one lady from the Reiki l camp that I had in Faraja earlier in the year.

It was wonderful to hear how Rachel, Evelyn and Carolyn have been healing themselves and dear ones around them. When I started off with the symbols, all three of them applied themselves very keenly to master the symbols. They quickly got the hang of it. Once attunement, followed by self healing, was done, we broke off for a short tea break.

As we resumed, and all the different distant healing modalities were explained, all three ladies were amazed at the various situations one could send Reiki to. The Reiki box was a hit as always. The ladies were thrilled at the concept of a Reiki box and couldn’t wait to write all their intentions.

I managed to end by 1.30pm but not before getting assurance from all to do self healing and Reiki box healing every day.

Thank you Cooky for your valuable assistance and Congratulations for conducting the Reiki l session successfully.

Gratitude always for this rewarding experience.

Reiki Seva for Cows and Feeding Them

On 20th September 2019, LHSG members Sheela Shah, Cooky Vora, Monica Gokaldas, Pratima Dutt, Lavina Keswani, Mamta Advani, Lata Kanji and I did our first seva to commemorate LHSG’s 14 years of Seva.

It was a Gau Seva, which translates into Cow seva. We went to two farms, to give Reiki to the cows. We had taken with us, carrots, bananas, jaggery, fennel seeds and mustard leaves to feed the cows. While they loved all these things, by far the favourite was the mustard leaves!

We had also donated Sh 7000 (approx. US$ 70) for wheat bran and hay, which makes up their usual diet. When the cows saw the treats we had brought them,  they got excited and some of them, literally in seconds, took them off our hands!

We blessed them with Reiki, and did Ho’oponopono to each of them. We asked for forgiveness from them for putting them through so much pain and for confining them in those small spaces all their life.

This seva came at a very special time for our Hindu, Jain and Sikh members, because it is Shraad, a period in which we ask for forgiveness from our ancestors (pitrus), as well as blessings from them and during which we do a lot of charity work on their behalf.

It was a very moving experience for all of us as we fed them with our hands and gave the Reiki.

At the end Monica led us with a prayer for our Pitrus, we chanted Aum Shanti, Shanti, Shantihi.

Please do read the rest of the report and watch the videos.

Thank you

We had a very fulfilling afternoon at the Gaushalas. We went to two different places and at both places we spread ourselves out to feed the cows in keeping with our Hindu/Sanatan Dharam and gave them healing in keeping with our LHSG mission.

I felt very grateful and became emotional in gratitude as only the fortunate get to do such seva during this period of Pitru Paksh. We dedicated the seva to all our ancestors and I am sure they blessed us.

We also did Ho’oponopono to the cows and the last cow whom we said Ho’oponopono to had tears in her eyes. It was a very humbling, spiritual and full of gratitude experience.

This wss my first time doing this wonderful humbling Gau Seva. I felt very sorry for all the harshness and sad situation all these cows endure just to serve our needs. I said a heartfelt forgiveness chant to all the cows we fed. I am very grateful for this opportunity especially during this shraad period.

Gau Sewa was a very touching experience. Felt deep deep gratitude to these gentle mothers who have nurtured humanity for thousands of years. I felt very sorry about how we humans treat all the animals that serve us in any way!

I did Hoponopono to Gau mata.

Dedicating this Sewa to our pitru was a very powerful and humbling experience.
