By Nipun A Jacob June 2011 The story of an anguished cancer patient’s journey from the pits of despair to healing of self and others through faith, meditation and spirituality BK Chandra Shekhar says he underwent the trauma of cancer so God could use him for a higher purpose “He chose me not because of my abilities but for my empathy with the pain and suffering of fellow cancer patients,” says Chandra Shekhar, a rajyogi, international memory trainer, motivational speaker, neurobic expert, inventor and director of Neurobic Gym. God never finds flaws in humans, says Chandra Shekhar. “He helps us correct our imperfections and guides us towards creating a healthy mind, body and spirit. As a human being, I was a victim of pessimism, which was taking me to a bottomless pit. He who has the power to turn the ordinary into extraordinary picked up the lowest of the low to be an apostle for his glory,” explains Chandra Shekhar. On December 24, 1998, a laparoscopic surgeon at the Air Force Hospital in Gorakhpur broke the news to Chandra Shekhar – it was cancer that had enlarged his testis. He was operated upon at the Delhi Army Hospital after which he was shifted to Pune for post-operative care. He remembers feeling utterly lost and hopeless. “The cancer terrified me. Though the doctors kept assuring me that I would be saved, I was sure this was the end. When intravenous injections were injected into my veins, they made me vomit. I lost all appetite, suffered from constipation and felt my throat burn due to chemotherapy. Three patients in my ward died before my eyes. It was horrible.” Why me? At this point, Chandra Shekhar says, he asked God why he was being made to suffer. “God wants us to know our Higher Self. He wants us to enter the silence within and meditate. He led me to the moment where I could have these insights. I had to cry out to him, and he answered. It was the third day of my chemotherapy – January 18, 1999. A flashlight shone on my face. I heard a sweet voice: ‘Your life is important for me. Nothing will happen.’ I did not believe what I was hearing. However, I heard the same words and was revisited by the same vision later in the evening. I allowed myself to have a little faith. The following morning, I saw the vision for the third time, and I was convinced. I mustered the courage to declare to everyone that I was out of danger. Finally, I believed,” he says, tears rolling down his cheeks. “My suffering changed to joy. Why had I doubted God’s existence? He is my father. How could he leave me? After all, I was precious to him.” He adds, “The following day, I promised God that each breath I took from then on would be in his service. I faced the chemotherapy with newfound courage and my scarred soul was healed. I refused to take pain-killers,” says Chandra Shekhar. After five months of chemotherapy the doctors declared Chandra Shekhar out of danger. A few days after he was visited by the vision and as his faith in God increased, Chandra Shekhar began to write. In the book, Improve Your Memory Power – Power of the Third Eye, Chandra Shekhar shared his journey to wholeness. This was followed by another book, Invisible Doctor, which threw light on the process that healed him. This book, his second, was edited by Dr Gayatri Bajaj who was healed of multiple myeloma, a type of cancer, through meditation by Chandra Shekhar. “The mad race for money and power invites suffering in diverse forms – stress, loss of hope, anxiety, depression, hate, jealousy and frustration. A correction is needed at the level of the mind first. Negative attitudes feed off our blood,” explains Chandra Shekhar, who believes that God sends a spiritual current in the form of vibrations for our sustenance. “His power comes in different frequencies. I meditate to relax my soul and body and to release emotions in the presence of God. This practice leads me closer to spirituality. Meditation is the key to experiencing that spiritual current. During meditation, our cells work like inverters. Our cells convert God’s power into biochemical energy that acts as a life-giving force. Meditation is a process that charges our body cells,” Chandra Shekhar says. Devi in the house Chandra Shekhar says his wife has been a source of selfless support. “She stood by me in the most chaotic stage of my life. She concealed her fear of losing me. She instilled confidence in me and never shirked her duties as a wife. She exemplifies the beauty of the quintessential Indian woman. She really is the Devi in my home.” Chandra Shekhar has no children. “Earlier, the realisation of childlessness was accompanied by a feeling of emptiness. Then I saw God as a child in my arms. My desires turned into reality and I stopped complaining about not having children. I prayed to God to pass on the realisation to my wife as well,” he says. “And so it was. One day she got the experience that Lord Krishna was playing with her; laughing and teasing her. He even crawled on her lap as she enfolded him in a hug. What greater fortune can a woman meet with, than having God for her child?” asks Chandra Shekhar. Shortly after his life-changing experiences, Chandra Shekhar began teaching meditation, beginning with his colleagues. “I began conducting workshops at the army, air force, and paramilitary bases. Soon, I decided to quit my job in May 2007 to undertake God’s work. I am doing what I can to spread God’s message of hope to far-flung corners.” Today, Chandrashekhar has over 3000 workshops and seminars to his credit globally. “It is important to recognise our hidden mental and spiritual powers,” he says, explaining why he founded SIGFA Solutions – Spiritual Incorporeal God Father in March 2009. SIGFA Solutions has opened 10 centres across India. Chandrashekhar and his team at SIGFA Neurobic Gym counsel students, businessman, housewives, engineers, doctors and teachers on curing themselves of anger, fear, phobias and behavioral problems. Participants are also taught chakra healing, harmonising relationships, memory power and sleep management. Who would have believed that one man’s struggle with cancer would benefit so many in the world?
