Hello Blessed Souls,
Introducing myself as Abhinav Gulechha from the GS batch. I am a CA by qualification and presently in full time employment in an MNC. I was born in Jodhpur in Rajasthan, spent initial part of childhood in New Delhi and moved to Mumbai after my CA and since then living here.
I have had my share of struggles in life which made a question started popping inside me – “What is the purpose of my life?” And this question started me into the journey of doing meditation, pranayama and yoga, basically started my spiritual journey. Life went on, got married to a beautiful soul Jaya and got blessed with 2 kids Prachiti (now 9) and Soham (now 6).
I saw a very difficult phase in 2014 – 2017 which instead of making my outlook towards my life bitter made me more accepting and loving. A spiritual awakening started in me, which is in process as I write now. I got swept by an overwhelming desire to help others and that is when I learnt Reiki and now PLR which again brought about a huge transformation in me. Also some books came into my life at just the right time - “Power of Now” and “A New Earth” by Eckhart Tolle and “The Laws of the Spirit World” by Ms. Khorshed Bhavnagri which made a huge impact on me.
I started to realise that the end goal of everything, all the knowledge, all the books is LOVE. If you are in love, then there is no need of everything, not even enlightenment. And there is no two, there is ONLY ONE. There is no “other” that I need to help. I don’t need to help myself also, I am total, I am complete. In my view, end goal of all healing therapies, be it PLR, Reiki is to just BE in love, allow love to flow, and let love do all the work.
Having said that, there is the daily grind, the “practical realities” and the mind takes over to the old patterns, and turns the focus away from the Ultimate. I am trying my best to come back and be the best version of myself and I fail a lot in that but learning and growing each day:)
The workshop and 5 days were wonderful thanks to my Master Venu (an epitome of love and patience) and Neha and Dipti, who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make it all happen. Also I could feel the presence of my Masters during the program only by whose GRACE I could make it to this program. I had powerful experience of seeing my past life during the workshop, thanks to my therapist Bhavani (no words to thank her, a blessed soul).
And as with any batch, we had some really fun moments. Just want to recall one incident where there was a client-therapist role play session on 4th day and the therapist was trying to induce client using Dave Elman and in spite of repeated attempts, client was not going into trance, so in some desperation she said – “Now as I count from 10 to 1, with each count, imagine yourself going 100x deeper” – and the moment she said that, the client opened his eyes & asked - “BUT WILL I ABLE TO COME BACK???” and it had all of us in splits (I know Venu & my GS soulmates are smiling right now:)….
Thank you for reading & I look forward to learning and sharing on this forum. Thank you.
