I first met Gulrukh midway through an asthma attack on a 5 Rhythms dance floor in Tuffnal Park about 4 years ago. I was struggling to breathe and suddenly there was this radiant woman standing in front of me, all smiles and warmth and I think she may even have embraced me in a hug. She did something with me to help me breathe and then whirled off again. I can’t quite recall what she did, but it helped and I was soon dancing again.
Gulrukh and I stayed in touched via Facebook – in fact I am very grateful to her as she about 99.9% of anything I share comes from her!
There is a rainbow quality about Gulrukh and it has been a real joy to get to know her a little bit here and there. She is is a generous woman who shares the fruits of her life with those around her and so she was one of the first people that I asked to be part of this series of guest bloggers on the why, what and how of their practice and I hope you enjoy reading her answers as much as I did.
I grew up in a very spiritual environment. With a lot of Asian traditions to colour my life. I realised early on that I had strong ‘intuitive or empathic’ traits by nature, as it seemed perfectly natural to feel what was going in inside people and to be able to intuit solutions to their issues. I also seemed to be able to ‘touch’ people in a healing fashion and somehow transmit higher frequencies to them, so they felt calmer and better.
Of course, we all have these abilities, but I recognised that I should professionally study complimentary modalities – to enhance these capabilities and use them within my working life. So I qualified in ‘Clinical Aromatherapy with Acupressure Massage and Chinese Diagnosis’, ‘Infant Massage’, ‘Energy Balancing’, ‘Distant Healing’, ‘Advanced Theta Healing’ and recently incorporated the use of ‘Quantum Scalar Light Therapy’ into my Clinical practice. I find the Light Therapy radically boosts people’s immune system, reduces pain, inflammation and detoxifies, both physically and emotionally. I use it a lot on myself too and have found incredible results in using it on others too.
As my grandfather was a renowned practitioner of the Ancient Greek ‘Unani’ medicine to the Nizam of Hyderabad and the President of India, it feels as though I inherited these capabilities and interests from him..
I practised many things along the years, ranging from yoga, tai chi, 5 rhythms dance and meditation. I still incorporate these practises into my daily life…as they all serve different purposes but also seem to all contain the same essence which is ‘focus’ for the mind.
Being quite a physically active person, I found that movement was a great way to help me to relax and get aligned, so I gravitate towards these practices. I call them ‘moving meditation’.
However, pure meditation and visualisation combined is something I do on a daily level. I don’t subscribe to a particular ‘named style’ as my practise incorporates features from whatever I have learned along the way.
I am fascinated by esoteric knowledge and the advancement of the ‘Spirit’ within our human vessel. It seems that we have so much innate power as beings, to really create amazing things; and to also master incredible powers within our minds and bodies.
I feel that the more we open our hearts to Cosmic wisdom, and allow the brilliance of ‘The Divine’ to infuse our lives, the more we are able to have clarity and achieve things with grace and success. Like Abraham Hicks teachings say…I feel we all need to remember to ‘operate from within the vortex’. Where we are ‘in flow’ and allowing life to open up synchronicities, and reveal ‘miracles’ to us to help us move forward and expand.
As a director and producer of documentaries, I find that it is important for me to stay in this ‘vortex’ as it keeps the flow of action going and keeps my mind alert.
Most days I will wake up, go for a short walk and then come back and meditate in silence for a bit. Then I will use the power of ‘visualisation’ to infuse my body with light, using the ‘Translucent Violet Flame’ to dislodge anything in my ‘field’ that I don’t want.
I will then imagine my chakras spinning perfectly and recite clear affirmations to set my intentions for the day.
I find this a suitable combination of methods to keep my interest and focus strong as I like variety.
I find this practice only takes an hour, but will supercharge my mind and body for the day.
It’s a question of waking up early and being disciplined enough to do it.
In between I do Yoga, Tai Chi and 5 rhythms when I get the opportunity.
I believe walking is a great Practice and it helps to balance the right and left hemispheres of the brain and energise the body. It’s free and you can do it anywhere. I often walk in the park opposite where I live, and hug a few trees on my rounds.
