“I woke up and I had a big ideaTo buy a new soul at the start of every yearI paid up and it cost me pretty dearHere’s a hymn to those that disappear…”If you too do feel that you’ve lost a part of your soul, fret not, there is hope and there are ways of recovering that lost self. At a recently held session on healing therapies in the Capital at The Imperial, healers from various parts of the country came by to discuss and share their methods with Delhiites.

You can realise it later when you notice that you are not the same person anymore, as you don’t like certain things the way you used to. Among all healings techniques, Soul Retrieval is the one which helps us bring pieces of one’s soul back.” Modern Science works on proofs and facts while spiritual healing works through belief. Says Baani, “The process works faster and better when one believes in it. If one is resistant to the idea, it takes more time than usual to heal someone.” Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveEven if you are sceptical about spiritual healing because of the unexplained facets of the procedure, Almas Lokhandwala had her arena set up with the Himalayan singing bowls, ready to talk about how sound vibrations can heal even one’s tumours! To give her visitors a feel of it, she strikes the edge of the largest bowl with a mallet creating a soft ‘aum’ sound that lingers on for a minute. Sound therapy causes the sound vibrations to relax one and help concentrate in meditation. “When we are nourished with sound, the cells in our body start vibrating and reorganising themselves into a state of well being. The rich sonic vibrations of the Himalayan Singing Bowls alter space mind and time,” explained Almas Lokhandwala. With increasing cases of illness in people, and helpless modern medicines, many choose to try out or walk the path of spiritual healing.

She remarked that the swearing-in ceremony is “an august occasion to celebrate democracy” and should not be devalued by any political party that wants to use it as an opportunity “to score political points.” Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateShortly after cancelling the trip to Delhi, she tweeted: “Congratulations, new Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji. It was my plan to accept the “Constitutional Invitation” and attend the oath-taking ceremony. However, in the last one hour, I am seeing media reports that the BJP are claiming 54 people have been murdered in political violence in Bengal. This is completely untrue. There have been no political murders in Bengal. These deaths may have occurred due to personal enmity, family quarrels and other disputes, nothing related to politics. There is no such record with us. So I am sorry Narendra Modi ji, this has compelled me not to attend the ceremony.” She further mentioned: “The ceremony is an august occasion to celebrate democracy, not one that should be devalued by any political party which uses it as an opportunity to score political points. Please excuse me.” Political experts felt that as the administrative head of the state, Banerjee has taken the right decision. It is an insult to her to share the same dais with the family members of the deceased as to accept it will mean a stamp on BJP’s tall claims. The saffron party claims that 46 party workers had died during the Panchayats election held in 2018 and five during the recently-concluded Lok Sabha election.
