Healing & blessings

If a person has a real problem physically and you want to help that person and say, “I want to heal you”, that means you want to share your karma with them. I want to take that karma from you and wear it, and if possible with the grace of God He will take some part of that karma from you. It’s a big responsibility, not an easy one.

What is Maha Shakti?

"The Divine Mother is ‘Maha Shakti’. Maha Shakti means universal energy. Form and formlessness. The formlessness that encompasses the whole universe. That formlessness is in the mountains, rivers, Earth, and throughout the whole universe. The stars, moon, and suns are all a part of the energy of the Divine Mother."
