The human body is a latticework of energies, vibrating at different frequencies, encompassing the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects. It has been perfectly created to function optimally, providing we observe the laws of nature.

When we divert from these laws, through breathing polluted air, eating food far from its natural state, drinking chemical laden water, ingesting toxic medication, smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol, using inorganic body and household products, being exposed to electromagnetic pollution and even thinking negative thoughts, energy imbalances result within our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual body, creating dis-ease.

The symptoms of our dis-ease are merely the body’s innate method of correcting the imbalances within, to allow us to return to our natural state of wholeness.

When we attempt to treat our dis-ease through the administration of medication, we are merely temporarily suppressing the symptoms. We are not addressing the root cause of our dis-ease, i.e. the energy imbalance. The medication causes further imbalances, disrupting the body’s natural immune system, which is rarely given the opportunity to fulfil its role.

Over a period of time, our initial dis-ease re-appears with more serious symptoms. Our body, once again is attempting to correct the imbalances within, to restore the healthy flow of energies. Our new symptoms are diagnosed as a new dis-ease, stronger medication is administered and the viscous cycle continues.

The traditional energy healers of India had a wealth of knowledge on how to diagnose, treat, and cure dis-ease by natural methods, and through the generations, a great deal of this ancient wisdom has been kept alive, some of which is described below.

The purpose of applying traditional Indian holistic therapies is to empower our body’s innate ability to self-heal.

Acupressure

The holistic practice of diagnosing and treating the root cause of dis-ease, thereby curing dis-ease by applying intermittent pressure on specific areas of the hands and feet, that correspond to specific organs, glands, nerves, bones, tissues and so forth. This regulates the vital energy within the body part, empowering it to function optimally. Traditional Indian medicine widely recognises that the physical root cause of all dis-ease lies within our endocrine and exocrine glands. These glands have a profound effect on our entire being as they regulate the functions of our systems and organs by secreting the numerous vital hormones essential for our well-being. It is only through the application of acupressure, that our endocrine and exocrine glands can be re-balanced and re-empowered.

Mudras

The holistic practice of balancing the vital energy throughout the body by joining different combinations of the fingers and thumbs. It is believed that the human structure is a miniature form of the universe, composed of the five elements; earth, water, fire, air and space, each of which corresponds to a specific finger or thumb. Holding specific fingers and thumbs together for a short period of time allow the elements to regain equilibrium which creates a positive effect throughout the entire being, to encourage our body’s natural healing response. Traditionally, mudras were practiced in conjunction with pranayama (yogic breathing exercises) to attain a higher state of consciousness or to channel the vital flow of energy to an area of the body that required healing.

Pranayama

The holistic practice of controlling the breath by a number of different techniques to increase the vital energy within the body. Our breath is the life force that flows through each and every cell within our body, and by expanding our life force we can harmonize with the life force of the universe, to receive cosmic healing energy. Our thoughts and emotions can have a detrimental effect on our breathing patterns, affecting all the bodily systems. However, with the regular practice of pranayama we can influence our physical, mental and emotional states in the most positive of ways, to initiate the body’s natural capacity to self-heal. Traditionally, pranayama was practiced to release negative emotions, re-balance the body’s energies and prepare the mind for meditation.

Meditation

The holistic practice of quietening the body and mind through awareness to enter a state of deep tranquillity whilst being fully alert. Meditation has been practiced in India for centuries to promote good health at a spiritual, mental, emotional and physical level. It allows us to re-connect with our true selves to experience inner peace and contentment, which we can draw upon in times of external stress and chaos, to remain calm, centred and in control. Meditation is immensely therapeutic and with regular practice it enables our entire being to rest, recharge and recuperate to release negative thought processes, deep rooted emotional trauma and pain. Traditionally, meditation was practiced to discipline the mind to attain spiritual purification or enlightenment.

Chanting

The holistic practice of repeating a mantra, for a short period of time, to detach from the external world, bring our awareness to the present moment and return to the essence of our being. A mantra is a rhythmic speaking or singing of a word or sound. It is believed to calm the restless mind and rid it of negative thought processes to create tranquillity and mental purity. Chanting starts loudly, gradually becoming quieter and ends almost silently. This resonates with the energies of the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of our body, to restore inner peace and awaken our latent healing energies. Traditionally, chanting was practiced with great devotion to reconnect with the divine light and love within us to experience the unity of life.

Facial Acupressure

The holistic practice of balancing the energy throughout the bodily systems by applying gentle pressure to specific points on the face that correspond to the body’s organs and glands. It is believed that our face reflects our inner physical, mental and emotional health and the upper, middle and lower areas of our face are associated with the upper, middle and lower parts of our torso. Indian energy healers study the face as a means of diagnosing health imbalances. Self- facial acupressure is effective for restoring our skin’s youthfulness and assisting our natural capacity to heal, as it re-activates the vital energy flowing through our bodily systems. Traditionally facial acupressure was applied during an Ayurvedic head massage to calm the mind, body and spirit.

Chromotherapy

The holistic practice of applying specific colours to parts of the body, by various methods to heal energy imbalances. The sun is comprised of seven colours, each of which possesses its own unique energy vibration and carries its own healing property. Each of the seven colours is associated with our seven main energy centres known as the chakras. Colour can be absorbed by our body through our chakras by sunlight, artificial light, the earth’s natural stones, water or visualization to restore harmony by correcting physical, mental and emotional energy imbalances. Traditionally the sun was worshipped for its ability to provide the necessary healing energy required by the body, to treat and prevent dis-ease, due to its abundant and unlimited source of solar energy.

Crystals

The holistic practice of placing the earth’s natural stones within the body’s magnetic field to restore the flow of healthy positive energy within and around the body by removing the toxic negative energy. The earth is crystalline, as it is composed of minerals, and our bodies are crystalline in essence; therefore our energies resonate harmoniously with the vibration of crystals. Each crystal possesses a unique chemical make-up which determines its healing property and appearance. Placing a crystal in our energy field or on a chakra allows our body to raise its vibration to that of the crystal. Traditionally, the earth’s natural stones were well known for their capacity to encourage self-healing and were widely used treat the organs and systems of the body, mind and spirit.

Yoga Asanas

The holistic practice of physical postures known as asanas, each of which has specific physical, mental, emotional and spiritual benefits to unite the body, mind and soul. Yoga alleviates numerous health conditions through restoring the healthy flow of our energies. The breathing carried out during the practice improves our cell oxygenation and increases our lung capacity which is beneficial to every bodily system. Regular practice of the asanas instils a calming and balancing effect on our endocrine and nervous system to relieve stress and anxiety. It is believed that as our physical body becomes more relaxed, flexible and open, this promotes a similar effect on our mental and emotional body. Traditionally, yoga asanas were practiced to purify the body and quieten the mind in preparation for meditation.

Barefoot Walking

The holistic practice of walking on the natural earth, barefoot to draw upon the powerful and unique energy source that lies within the earth. The earth is composed of minerals and the human body is mineral in essence, therefore our body’s energies resonate perfectly with the earth’s energies. It is believed that through the practice of barefoot walking, our body absorbs the antioxidants it requires to counteract harmful free radicals. Sleeping outdoors during the summer, on a natural fibre placed directly on the bare earth is immensely therapeutic and described as charging the entire being with the vital healing force of the universe.  Traditionally, humans were aware of the benefits of connecting their body with the earth’s surface; sleeping and sitting on natural animal skins and walking barefoot.

Healing Visualisations

The holistic practice of creating positive images of healing within the mental body, which allows the emotional body to respond by becoming receptive to the healing, which subsequently initiates the healing process in the physical body. Our body and mind are intricately connected and our thoughts have a direct influence on our physical health. By using the power of our mind, to envision our healing in process, we are disciplining our nervous system to react in a positive way, resulting in the desired outcome. The regular practice of healing visualizations, allows us to detach from our past limited beliefs to release our fears, bring our awareness to the present moment to enable us to create a healthy future. Traditionally, there was an innate awareness of the mind, body, soul connection and healing visualizations were practiced through daily prayer.

Raw Food Diet

The holistic practice of eating food in its whole, un-refined and un-cooked form that is positively and negatively balanced, supplying the body with a plentiful supply of solar energy and active enzymes. Food eaten in its raw, natural state has a detoxifying, calming and balancing effect on the energies of our body, which instils a similar effect on the energies of our mind and emotions. All of the nutrients required by the body are available in plant based food, in a form that is easily assimilated. Traditionally, fasting was recommended during illness to allow the body’s energy reserves to be directed towards self-healing, however adopting a raw food diet for a short period of time can have similar health benefits.

In today’s fast-paced world, as we strive to create balance in our bodies, tranquillity in our minds and harmony in our lives, to experience inner peace and contentment, we can benefit enormously from the ancient Indian wisdom of self-healing practices to cleanse, calm and empower our energies, ensuring they flow smoothly and synchronically, instilling physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.

JELILA

How did you transition from the Corporate world in London to being a healer in Bali?

I was ready!  I was practicing yoga and 5 Rhythms dance for 7 or 8 years… studying spirituality, absorbing hundreds of personal development books. I had my own art studio and was making art and having shows for 17 years and my art is a way of looking deeply within– it’s a kind of meditation and also is where I learned to stop listening to the critical inner voice ‘you can’t put red there!’ – as ‘I already did!’

When I left BNP Paribas, where I was a consultant in IT and systems design, I enjoyed a hero’s sendoff –my journey out of Corporate, to Bali was a journey that my colleagues might have loved to make.

In Ubud, Bali, I began teaching Kundalini Yoga.  Then, I was initiated into Advanced Light Language – a powerful healing modality using sacred geometry, light and colour, and I began to realise my gift as a healer.

What kind of healing do you do?

Using The Reprogramming™, my deep talking and transformation process, I help you access the web of hidden core negative beliefs that may be trapping you.  It’s dynamic and fun – often surprising, as we uncover and release your true root causes! 

To clear emotional baggage, you lay on the bed and I use intuitive healing with a high vibration of light, cocooning you in sound healing music and crystals until you feel lighter and happier.

Why do you do it?

I do it because it’s easy for me, because I am good at it, because it is intriguing, and because I get great results for people, and that is very satisfying.

What transformations have you experienced and witnessed in others?

Oh, difficult to choose! So many great moments over 20 years and more than 10,000 clients.

The best, is in myself – I now have inner peace.  I no longer suffer from negative or critical mind talk at all.  I feel that is a fantastic achievement!  How many people do you know with POSITIVE mind chatter?  I guide my clients to reach that peace as well, when they complete my program The Gift of Harmony, a deep step-by-step transformation, to release core issues and balance 4 (normally warring!) parts of yourself.

At the Four Seasons, where I was Master in Residence, one client, a company chairman, said I transformed her life.  I helped her let go of 30 years of grief.

Another client said he wouldn’t have had his child, without “The Gift of Harmony”. It helped him resolve relationship issues and commit.  Now his lovely daughter is 11.

Several clients have said ‘I wish I’d met you 10 years ago – I would have saved thousands of dollars in therapy!’ – you can see comments like this on my Tripadvisor – ‘Jelila Spiritual Healer’.

Crystals are obviously an important part of your work – how do you use them?

I was blown away when I first discovered the power of crystals – I was asked to do a crystal healing and found I could just naturally do it – I felt I was tapping into knowledge that I already knew!

In Singapore, at Sanctum, and Basic Essence Healing Centres, I continued practicing crystal healing, using the power of the crystals to move energy, release negativity, balance emotions, harmonise chakras, and create peace and wellbeing.

How did your Crystal Healing Necklaces come about?

Individual crystals got lost in the bed, so one day I created a ‘chord’ of crystals, 1.2 metres long – a strand of rainbow crystals to balance the chakras – “The Yoga Chord”.  I love using it for healing as it is so easy to move anywhere on the body.  My clients loved it too, and wanted to buy it to wear, and so my healing crystal necklace range was born.

How do you use them?

Wear them, and place on the body during Crystal Healing.  More about my methods and how to use my healing crystal necklaces are in my book ‘The Power of Crystals’.

12980581_10154110447390522_597759955_n

How do you program your crystals?

I set an intention, then I ‘talk’ to the crystals, until they agree to do it!

How do people feel when they wear your crystals?

Uplifted, positive, happier, more focused.  My clients adore them –especially the Yoga Chord –if it breaks, they can’t wait to get a new one!

You replace them if they break?

Yes because a crystal can break when a pattern breaks.  Obviously my clients are always advancing, so this does happen!  That’s why I guarantee them.  I usually tell them why it broke. 

Are you psychic?

Yes of course!  I am clairvoyant, clairaudient, clairsentient – I can see, hear, feel, and know what is going on with you, and I have ‘inner guides’ who tell me. 

How about your music?

I sing my own healing songs, live, to my clients.  I sing ‘Light Language’ a funny sounding language that people say touches their soul.  It conveys deep emotions and knowledge through the vehicle of sound healing.  It reaches the parts others can’t reach. My song ‘The Law of Attraction’ teaches how to manifest your desires, and also has a positive, attractive vibe to help that happen!  Here is an excerpt, you can listen and download the song and read the full lyrics, at the link below: 

The Law of Attraction

by © Jelila 2005 All Rights Reserved:

Constructive thoughts will win the day, so it pays, to take time to perfect your creations –in your head first. 

Make your imagined design the most perfect thing you can – as an idea, a mental plan – before you make it.   

That way, you won’t have to break it down, and do it again, another day! 

Like this, you’ll avoid strife, and easily bring the thing to life, in the perfect way. 

That’s the Law of Attraction! 

For the full song click here!

And your CDs?

I’ve recorded 14 CD themes of my healing music.  My favourite is Lullaby for the Inner Child – deeply soothing, with words your inner child loves to hear, it starts off with peaceful Light Language song.

How about your other books?

The Gift of Harmony portrays your inner world in a new yet simple way that is wonderful for relationships.  Alien Wedding reveals some ancient negativity you can cleanse, The Reprogramming I and II, let you learn from (fictionalised) healing sessions of others and release stuff yourself as well.  All are available on Amazon and Kindle and in my online store.

One last thought?

Don’t give up!  Everything is possible, and it’s easier than you think.

With The Reprogramming™, you can reach any issue, change anything, when you reach and release the core negative beliefs that are truly driving you – and in days and hours, not years! 

My intention is to help you overcome any issues gracefully and go on your way, as soon as possible, living a happy life!
