Is Guru required to achieve the Ultimate experience of Yoga?
When I started my path of Yoga, frankly I never imagined that I would have an enlightened Guru because I wasn’t even searching for one. But the moment the Guru happened in my life, that was when my life truly began for me. Before that I was merely existing with a lot of suffering, struggles and confusion in my life. From my own experience, after meeting my Guru, Paramahamsa Nithyananda (fondly known as Swamiji), I am able to cognize my ignorance, complete with the past hangovers and discover other higher dimensions in life, self and Cosmos.

As an ordained Nithya Spiritual Healer, quite often I’ve been asked the science of energy healing and the difference between pranic healing and spiritual healing. This article is intended to offer clarity.
All emotions, both good and bad, are nothing but the effect of the engraved memories (samskaras) which we have accumulated in the past. When you are carrying too many negative samskaras, naturally the energy flow in the body will not be smooth. In particular, samskaras block the energy centers (chakras) causing physical and mental disturbances. Most of our diseases are psychosomatic. They have their roots in the mind. What we see is just the effect and so we never really understand this mind-body connection. When a particular chakra gets blocked, the part of the body near that chakra gets affected. Kirlian photography has recorded the effect of emotions on the chakras. Each of our major chakras is related to some primary emotion in us. All our emotions are just different facets of our seven primary emotions. The same basic emotion plays as anger and fear, the same emotion plays as desire and guilt. If we can understand these seven emotions, we can handle the whole spectrum of emotions that happens in us.

Bruce Lipton, who is an internationally recognized leader in bridging science and spirituality, talked about quantum entanglement. Entanglement happens when 2 persons fall in tune with a same thought. Physicist Amit Goswami published an article in a physics journal showing that entanglement affects people. The premise of the finding was – when two people become entangled, one person will conform to the energy of the other person. When one of them is a healer whose cells are vibrating at a higher level, the client’s cells become entangled, and their energy is lifted.
Here’s my story of my entanglement with Gerry Hillier.
The year was 2004 when I first met Gerry at a Yoga Teachers Training in Byron Bay, Australia. This was also the period when I was still searching to find myself, and I had just become a new mother. We were room-mates during the 14-day training. After spending almost 2 weeks with her, I was not only enchanted by her wonderful stories about her life and the children she worked with but also inspired by what she was doing i.e. teaching drama and creative expression to kids and youth in her home town in Queensland on top of being a yoga teacher, an author/a writer and an entrepreneur. She is one being that I was more fascinated with than the renowned teacher who was training us.
