What type of healing do you do?
I practice a variety of healing modalities such as psychic surgery, reiki, pranic healing, chakra balancing/toning, sound healing therapy, shiatsu anma therapy, healing relationships with parents/children/partners, quantum touch, swedish massage therapy, Deeksha/Oneness Blessings, spiritual counselling, yoga, pranayama and various meditation techniques.
Why do you do this particular sort of healing work?
I have always been drawn to it and was keen on knowing ways to heal myself and others. When I was in my teenager, I used to have visions of sharing the healing “hands on”. At that time, I couldn’t really understand those visions as I wanted to follow my father’s dream of being a businessman.
When I started working as a healer, I suddenly had a deja vu and the same vision appeared to me- the one of healing hands, which I used to see in my teenage years.
When did you discover an interest in healing, yoga and kirtan?
In my early childhood when I was around 5 years old, I started sitting in kirtan with my father and then continued to learn from him. Seeing my interest in music, my father enrolled me into a Hindustani Classical Music school in aurangabad (Maharashtra) and while I was in my teenage years, I started attending yoga classes regularly and then began to have interest in learning various healing modalities.
How did you develop your abilities and methods as a healer and as a musician?
It took me quite a while to develop my abilities and methods by constantly inquiring, learning, practicing and sharing. In the beginning, I used to be very shy about expressing myself, but with Grace and the encouragement of so many beautiful souls that I have encountered in life; it became a smooth process to express and to learn again from the art that was expressed as music or as healing.
How do you prepare for your sessions and for your gigs?
By invoking the divine guidance and universal intelligence to guide, by thanking all my masters for all the knowledge that I have received, and also for the people who come to experience, I thank them for their presence, their inner beauty and openness to give me a chance to be part of their world.

What transformations have you experienced through your journey as a healer?
In order to have the divine grace we need to help as many beings as we can.
My whole life has been transformed and is transforming through so much healing that I have also received by giving it. My relationships have healed in a major way, my spiritual life, health, finance etc. I would say that each and every aspect of my life has been touched with the healing. I am so filled with Gratitude.

What has your greatest realisation or learning been?

What is the most powerful type of healing you have personally experienced?
The most powerful healing that I have ever experienced is healing my relationship with my parents, partner and children- major growth in a spiritual understanding of life itself.
Do you have one tip to share for happiness and wellbeing in everyday life?
Yes, live life fully with happiness in each and every moment.
The outer world is merely the reflection of your internal state.
What are your plans for the future and the evolution of what you do musically and holistically?
My plans for future are to travel globally and share the love and healing through music and other healing modalities.
