Healings & Harmoniums: Krista Visits a Sikh Temple

Back in October I had the pleasure of visiting a Sikh temple with my good friend and fellow healer, Dr. Bhushan Sood whom I had met through the Ontario Hypnosis Centre. This is what I discovered…

Bhushan and I had participated in many healing circles together, including work in past life regression, interlife (life between lives) in which I learned of my true mission here, and CCMBA/CCMSC Hands-on-Healing techniques.  We along with other colleagues would get together and discuss our progress, and he was continually fascinated by the spiritual aspects of what we had discovered through our work in hypnosis, specifically the channelled material that came through me when I was in a state of deep metaphysical awareness.

Since then I had become an avid writer, healer and hypnotist in my own right, taking on clients at my home and at my new office in Toronto, while raising two kids (both teenagers now) with my husband in Scarborough, and conducting workshops and retreats worldwide, including Tuscany…

I had become inspired (and instructed through my angelic helpers) to include music in my work, and had begun composing some simple melodies and songs that might help in relaxing and connecting clients and groups in song. I thought I needed an instrument, and always loved the sound of the harmonium.  I knew Bhushan was Hindu and very connected to his community, and figured he would know someone who might sell me one for a reasonable price. I reached out, and within 2 weeks Bhushan had located a friend at the Sikh Temple in Mississauga who had one available.

So on a fine fall day, I headed out to Mississauga to meet Bhushan at his home, where he was just finishing work with a young gentleman by the name of Colin. I felt instantly connected to this “boy” who had spent some time in the military. Bushan began to explain what I did, and that I am connected to the angelic, and suddenly I felt such a powerful flow of love and inspiration as I spoke and listened to this young man. I knew I had been brought there for a reason, and so began to share and answer his questions about spiritual matters, and even counsel him on how he could find his way as well. I felt truly inspired to be able to help this young man, in collaboration with Bhushan who had total faith and trust in me.

We headed out to find Bhushan’s friend who would guide us to the Sikh temple, but had to meet him first at the local mall where he was with a seniors group through the United Way. He and his friends were sitting around a large table eating and enjoying each other’s company and welcomed us in to enjoy a light meal and tea. I was delighted! This was a whole new experience for me…

One of the gentleman asked Bhushan in his own language for us to introduce ourselves, and so we stood up and did so. Then Bhushan stood up and elaborated a bit more in describing what I did with the angelic realm, healings and miracles, and from there, many questions came forward from eager participants!  I answered their questions in English, while Bhushan translated. Then I offered to give a blessing which I channelled from the angelic, and afterward a man who was legally blind proclaimed he could see me. Bushan guided me to touch him on the forehead along with the others, as we graciously left with our guide and headed for the Sikh temple.

As we arrived, I felt peaceful and eager to discover what it was like to be inside one of these holy places, so different from any experience I have had in my own lifetime being mainly identified as protestant Christian with no official religious upbringing. I had frequented many churches along the way but had developed my own spiritual practice and healing work, and admired the community aspect and ritual of more organized churches, temples and places of worship and gathering.

We were guided along the hallways of the temple, noting the paintings of warring factions, and the blood of martyrs. This was disturbing to my peaceful sensibilities, but I watched and observed with respectful wonder at how others expressed their beliefs. We entered the temple space, which was wide and open, with an elaborate shrine, including the swords and other implements to defend the faith. I knelt down in respect and prayed.

The harmonium seemed the last and least important part of our journey together! Although we enjoyed the banter of negotiation, and I did buy one after all, I confess I have hardly played it, but am grateful that it was the catalyst for such an important day.  I will never forget the joy of meeting Bhushan’s friends, healing with Colin and the seniors’ group, and the lessons of tolerance, non-judgement and love for all. Miracles have no face, no culture, and no religious preferences – for they are truly gifts of the spirit that work through us to each other, and bless all as one people under God. Amen.

P.S. Bhushan allowed me to take some brief shots of film, which I assembled into a video to share with my community on The Miracle Network Toronto – Miracle TV (youtube), and so I post this here for your enjoyment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbHNUbN0v1k
