Animal Incarnation:

I have had people experience their past lives as animals- cat, hippopotamus, giraffe, and recently as a donkey.

By the way, donkeys (and horses also) are very social. They hurt when they feel lonely and uncared for, and carry forward those emotions to other lives.

My client, MT, said he was unable to satisfy his wife, Mona. They had 2 teenaged children. As a couple they had a fairly good understanding through the rough times they went through together. His family threw him out of the ancestral business; he struggled, went to court and finally got very little that barely made both ends meet. But he has a very dear friend Mahesh, who gave him space to start his own again. MT came to for a qhht session because said he was lacking in abundance.

donkeys

In the beginning MT could not believe he could have four legs and tied to a post in a lush green pasture.

MT: There are 5 of us- 3 male and 2 female. I’m a male donkey.

L: Do you know any of them?

MT: Mona… that’s my wife, Mona…

He was shocked to be able to recognize her in that life. She was tied far from him.

MT: I’m tied closer to the male donkeys. Oh, my God, that’s my friend Mahesh tied next to me!

He started smiling. He said that female donkey (Mona) was interested in him.

L: How do you know?

MT: She flutters her eyelids and she emits an odor, which means that.

He was so excited to find her there in the farm right next to him. He couldn’t believe how wonderful he felt finding her like this. But all of a sudden he started crying.

L: What happened? Why are you crying?

MT: Mona and another donkey are leaving the farm. She’s gone and I will never see her again.

They never had a chance to be together. He went on sobbing, crying out her name, tears rolling down his cheeks. The donkeys were used for transport, to carry load on their backs. The owner sold two to some other people.

While this donkey was a little baby he lived at another place, never had anyone around. His mother would be gone the whole day and he was alone in the farm, jumping around here and there, waiting for her. He was sent to this farm when he was big enough to carry load on his back. He said it felt so darn limiting! When he grew older and aged, his back started to hurt- so much that he could no longer stand up. He was very lonely and sad. He was lying down mostly, due to depression and pain. He never experienced any physical contact with anyone, except when the owner’s wife came and gave him food and stroked his back. He yearned for that caressing and love. Sadly, one day he died in his sleep.

When I asked the SC why they showed him that life-

Higher Self/SC: Because he is still continuing that donkey’s life. His consciousness is that of a donkey.

L: Can you elaborate?

SC: MT wants to have enjoyment that he was unable to have in that donkey-life. Now he has been given a chance to do so. But his old programming of “lack” is still running. Look at his business; he has worked like a donkey still trying so hard to make both ends meet. Now that he as asked for abundance we will change his “programming” (his thinking and belief). It has started from now on. He will continue to receive some “program-packets” in his dreams and that will help.

L: Is this donkey-life just prior to life as MT?

SC: No, this was a long time ago. His soul has had many human incarnations after that. But the donkey’s life had to be balanced- the fulfillment he sought must be experienced. His current life is a chance to have all that his soul longed for in that life. We have healed the lack now.

Beauty and Body Image

“Why is it so important for me to be a radiant, glowing, fulfilled, spiritual, beautiful woman, owning all her power?”

Chloe, a 33-year-old French woman came to me for a past life regression therapy session. She grew up in Rouen, in France but never liked that place.

While she worked at a fashion house in Paris she visited India several times and then later she decided to move here. Through her contacts in the fashion world she started an e-commerce business selling organic women’s fashion clothing.

She’s been living in a spiritual community in Kerala now, a safe protected place- living a healthier lifestyle and a regular spiritual practice.

Yet she hated herself for being overweight and felt very ugly. She would binge on desserts and chocolates. Her boyfriend didn’t make her feel happy. Her online biz hasn’t taken off. She felt a lot of fear. She felt her parents were busy when she was growing up and didn’t give her love.

Through her trance she saw many different forms and beings that she has previously been- full of light and joy. Here are some of her questions she had for the higher self.

  1. Why did she put on weight?

It comes from a different lifetime. It does not belong to her. It was meant to cope with a situation, but now it’s over. Now that she is connecting with me, I’m here to guide her. She is on track. She had to experience it to know how it feels on others. That’s why I put that on her journey but there is nothing to worry about. It does not belong to her. Now she’s asked me and I have taken care of it. It’s over. Her eating disorder is over. She didn’t do anything wrong. Now it’s over.

  1. Why is her body image is so important to her?

Because beauty is Divine; and she is a piece of the divine. She is here to manifest beauty. By taking care of herself, from eating well, moving well, being happy, to loving without fear, to being confident and making herself pretty. And then I’m going to bring everything to her. We have started the journey today. Her work is to smile and be happy. She’s not alone. She will never be alone. I’m always with her.

  1. Why is she ashamed to see herself in a picture?

Because she does not have the knowledge of who she is! She has to watch herself in the mirror and say, “I am Chloe. I am beautiful. I am who I am. And I’m proud of who I am.”

  1. What would have happened if she shone her light?

I can feel all my cells of my body – she is going to feel as light. And she will be flying. She will be like the goddess of her life. She will be so light on everything – physically and emotionally and mentally. She will be able to manifest whatever she wants. And then when her confidence is back she can have everything. She can be everything. She is here in this life to enjoy every single moment and everything will be given to her. She is a diamond but she’s still wearing a suit of a stone.

  1. Why is she suffering from constipation?

Because she’s full of fears: She fears to know if she’s worthy of all the gifts and all the beauty that I have for her.

  1. How can she feel more worthy of herself?

I’m going to guide her and help her. When a situation is about to come, I will support her with worthiness.

  1. Why doesn’t she feel loved and celebrated with her boyfriend?

Because she’s not loving herself and celebrating herself!

  1. What’s the purpose of her life?

To be happy- to give love and receive love. And to experience the light.

  1. Why is it so important for her to be a radiant, glowing, fulfilled, spiritual, beautiful woman, owning all her power?

Because she came on earth in this life to be all that- her own version of the Goddess, that’s the way she’s going to help people and as soon as she wears a Goddess suit, and when she puts her treasure back in her heart centre (apparently she has her gifts on the side pocket) she will attract the right people. Things will expand very fast & very easily. She’s here for abundance.

Goddess

“My parents hated me!”

PT, 37, broke down when she started talking about her childhood. Her mother didn’t express any love or affection towards her while she looked after her other younger brother and sister well. She said she was barely given any food; often it was stale food she had to contend with. Her father chose to keep quiet which gave her mother a tacit approval to continue to be the way she was. PT was given many chores and was yelled at for everything she did. As a little girl in school her hair was full of lice and she was hungry all the time. She was too sad! Now the sadness had grown into a big lump in her chest. She has problems dealing with people at home and at work.

PT saw in a previous lifetime she was a highly successful lawyer. She was very powerful and had a control over people, which she thoroughly enjoyed.

Lipa: Why is she suffering like this now?

Higher Self/SC: She knows why! In that lifetime as a successful lawyer she contested against her parents, who were criminals in that life time. She used all her power to give them the hardest punishment she could.

L: And then?

SC: After that lifetime was over, when she went to the spirit side her soul realized/felt that she was too hard on them. The punishment that was decreed on the criminals (her parents in the current life) was way too severe for the acts they did.

So she decided that in order to bring balance in her soul she had to punish herself and she chose them as her parents.

L: Oh, I see why she has been punishing herself all her life. How can we help her today?

SC: We can help her to let go of the pain in her chest today. She doesn’t need that.

L: Oh, that will be good. She would feel so unburdened. I’m told we get to choose our parents. Please tell me then, why did she choose to have these two as her parents?

SC: Yes, you get to choose that. But this time she was given only two choice: either these two as parents, or come as an orphan. She chose them. But you see you are never stranded in suffering. You can pray and ask, and be open.

Depression

Gallbladder stones and lungs infection:

DS, 38, from Kanpur, had been planning to come for a Past Life Regression therapy through a QHHT session since the past one year. He frantically called me one day to have a session- if he could “avoid going through gallbladder surgery to remove stones”- knowing how all-powerful the higher self/SC is!

DS has a business for the last 10 years that requires him to work during the nighttime. His cough started when he began his new business and now both the lungs are severely affected. Medicines have temporary relief. But he felt there was something more.

DS has been a very kind hearted man. He finances all the medical expenses of his parents. He made sure both his brothers settled in their businesses, got his sister married, took care of his youngest brother who is a specially-abled child and still feels bad that he could have given better medical and educational support to him.

Lipa – What is causing the stones in his gallbladder?

SC- He has been working against his body clock for many years now.

L- How can he be helped now?

SC- He has to go through the surgery. Can’t be healed today (during the session).

L- What about his lungs infection?

SC- (Laughs) He just saw that lifetime when died very old, suffering from lung infection. His wife had passed away long time ago. His only daughter was married off in another village. There was no one to take him to a vaid (doctor). He died coughing and crying to be taken to a hospital. The cough originates from that time.

L- Is it serving any purpose?

SC- No, it’s a baggage he is carrying around for a long time.

There was silence.

L- What’s happening?

SC- (chuckles) We are turning his lungs pink.

L- Can he feel that?

SC- Oh yes!! He will feel a difference from now on. And Lipa, you are doing an extraordinary job. It has helped him a lot today.

L- Thank you. 😊 Tell me why does he feel the need to help his family so much?

SC- Hmmm… while he was suffering in his previous life, he longed to be a part of a bigger family. He swore to himself that he would never allow anyone to suffer. But now he has done enough for the family- he can’t help them more.

L- Which means suffering has a meaning, right?

SC- Oh yes, that is the reason he suffered- to find meaning, to grow in his soul, to share more, to embrace more. You see pain and happiness are in juxtaposition to help the soul ascend. Transcendence- that’s the only goal of the soul. And we help, when asked for help. 💜

Marijuana – just one time

My client, Ajay, a 30, works in advertising. He has been very depressed and disturbed for couple of years. He takes a vodka shot every night to get some sleep. I insist on having no alcohol the day before the QHHT session. He can’t let go of it even for a day.

Five years ago a school friend got him a “packet”. He could not remember anything that followed after he consumed marijuana on that fateful day. His memory was totally wiped out about the sequence of the event that led to his smoking. Except that he remembered feeling disturbed and heavy since then. He has been under psychiatric treatment.

He wanted to discover what happened that day. He was curious to see if he could recover the memory of that incident and heal from the heaviness he felt all the time.

I knew he would be able to discover the details of the missing event in the trance once he learned to relax. So we went ahead.

Ajay descended into that very day on 2013. It was Janmasthami. He woke up in the morning looking for the “stuff” his friend had left behind. He found it in his closet. He rolled it carefully and smoked. After a while he felt very uneasy. He went out for a walk and called his friend who got him the stuff. He came back home and asked another friend to help him out and take him to the hospital, but the friend asked him to go back to sleep.

One by one everything kept coming back. He realized that when he puffed marijuana he got a panic attack- because that was an auspicious day of Janmasthami. He felt he had made a BIG blunder. That made him feel like a sinner. It was Lord Krishna’s day, celebrated as a sacred event. His folks worshipped the lord and somewhere instilled very strong values of right and wrong. “Paapi hoon mein” echoed from within!

His belief system could not excuse his behavior. He needed to punish himself. And hence it took form of panic attack, of course unconsciously.

I told him the Lord was present during the session and could see Him standing. Ajay did not doubt. Later when he woke up he told me that he saw Lord Krishna in the room and he knelt before him. He received a deep blessing in his heart – so much love and acceptance! That moment he felt the Lord had forgiven him for his “wrong-doing” and it was okay. Also made him understand that it was time for him to let go and not punish himself any more. He could unchain himself from misery.

Lot of people ask me, “So they get completely over with a wrong habit?”

Well, the session makes them become lighter and gives them a choice. I also reiterate that when you don’t have a very strong will power and determination to bring change from within, then at least choose an environment that would support your new way of life. And bring them to list those choices.

Misuse of Power #Metoo

Did I have a #Metoo moment in the Corporate HR world? Yes! If you call someone hitting on you persistently to tempt you with a “fat deal”, then the answer is yes!

I felt a deep shame that some of these people were from my “Obrah” (Oriya Brahmin/extended) community! They felt their brazen act outside of the state was okay. It’s extremely disgusting when you see these big-time so called HR honchos “suggesting” directly or in a clandestine manner.

I ask myself why am I saying this on social media? What do I gain?

The reason is: being a mother/an aunt to the younger generation how do I contribute to understand what is character and how we can reform!

Certainly these men, despite their outward success felt inadequate. They lacked something for which they needed to be secretly gratified. They may have been made to feel small and hence powerless- not good about themselves! So at the slightest opportunity they were ready to misuse their power, in order to feel powerful again.

So it all comes down to understanding our personal power- and the use and misuse of it.

I also happened to experience the contrast. While I was going through a really bad phase in my life, living alone, emotionally lost and vulnerable, I met this man from my “Obrah” community. After dinner he dropped me home, hugged me and kissed me on my forehead and left.

He used his power. And used it wisely. A sense of control over yourself- that is true power. That discrimination makes you a man, a human. Otherwise you are equal to an animal.

As responsible human beings we always have a choice to act or react to use our voice. And hence I’m using mine.

I’m completely with each one of you who has been a victim of #Metoo. I hope there’s more transparency in making these “deals” in the future.

But I have decided to take this stand. Over the years I have worked at having compassion for myself and I have, to a large extend, forgiven those who acted like predators. I will not to bring myself down to expose them.

Sadly, you can’t run away from yourself! Today they are all scared and taking pills to suppress their stress anyway. It takes courage to do the right thing. And to do the right thing is not always easy. But it pays in the long run.

History and Reincarnation

“Master said Winston Churchill was Napoleon.” I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard the first time Swami Kriyananda declared while we gathered around for community satsang when I lived at the Ananda Spiritual Communities more than a decade ago.

Swami Kriyanada, (1926-2013) aka, J. Donald Walters was a genius. He found several spiritual communities across the world, authored over 70 books, wrote scores of more than 200 pieces of music and gave lyrics to many. He spoke seven languages, including fluent Bengali and broken Hindi. We would meet him every week just to be in his presence. Often he would entertain us by reading stories from P.G. Wodehouse or speak about the times he lived with the great Master, his guru, Paramhansa Yogananda, at Mt. Washington in Los Angeles, back in the late 1940s and 50s.

Swamiji continued, “Napoleon wanted to conquer England. Churchill, as Prime Minister, fulfilled that ambition. Napoleon ‘wanted to destroy’ England. As Churchill he had to ‘preside over the disintegration’ of the British Empire.” As a young man, it seems, Churchill was keenly interested in the military exploits of Napoleon.

I always wanted to know these reincarnation details from authentic and reliable sources. Just curious- what did the soul want to learn or experience from the recurring incarnations?

My jaw dropped when he said, “Hitler was Alexander the Great!” In warfare both, Hitler and Alexander, used the strategy of lightening attack, which Hitler named, blitzkrieg. Alexander’s label “the Great” was that of sarcasm, he explained.

In the year 1935, Yogananda requested for an interview with Hitler to prevent the war, it was denied.

“Mussolini was Mark Anthony. Kaiser Wilhelm II was Julius Caesar. Stalin was Genghis Khan.”

Nothing thrilled me more than these revelations! You can read more from “The New Path”, by Swami Kriyananda, Chapter-38, “Reincarnation”.

Lahiri Mahasay was King Janak. Abraham Lincoln came back as the aviator, Charles Lindberg in the 20th century. Richard Salva, an Ananda resident has written a book, “Reincarnation of Abraham Lincoln”.

Yogananda said that in an earlier incarnation he was William the Conqueror, from Normandy, who conquered England and became the king. Swami Kriyananda always felt that he was Henry I, William’s third son, who finally became the king and consolidated England in the 12th century. A long time resident at Ananda, Catherine Kairavi has written a book, “Two Souls- Four Lives” based on the above. Catherine gave many insights about her research while writing the manuscript and I was very fortunate to be a part of those discussions at Ananda Village, California.

While Yogananda played the role of William the Conqueror, his guru Swami Sri Yukteswar who was eloquent and crystal clear in his elucidation of the scriptures, was Lanfranc, the archbishop of Canterbury, during the time of William. Lanfranc gave up his job as a jurist and became a monk. As per Catherine, William was afraid of no one, except Lanfranc.

Stories of reincarnation were commonly our topic of discussion at Ananda. We often wondered and joked about our own past lives connected with these great characters from history. It was interesting to reflect and introspect. It gave us a perspective about where we were headed and what’s next!
