September 2015 By Anuradha Ramesh When Anuradha Ramesh encountered Christ consciousness through a breathwork technique, she underwent a powerful transformation It was around 5 pm on January 6, 2006. I had finally got an appointment with my breathwork and past-life regression teacher. Having recently undergone training to be a past-life regression therapist, I requested him to facilitate a session of breathwork for me as a portal to a past life. About eight minutes into the session, flashes of images began to appear on my mind’s screen. I had gone back to what appeared to be at least 200 years ago. The clothes and the surroundings, which seemed to be cold, damp and grey, implied it was some place in Europe. It appeared to be a life of great suffering. I saw myself in extreme situations of hunger and depravation. My body processed these memories as they surfaced. There were sensations of intense churning in my stomach, and nausea. My throat was choking up and I was going through the motions of retching as though wanting to expel or release something from my gut. There was huge emotional release as well, as though finally giving release to the miseries that are part of human existence. It felt as though I was crying on behalf of all humanity. So intense were my cries and coming from such depths that I knew, even while it was happening, that it was not all about me, it was not all mine. As the emotions and physical sensations began to subside, fatigue took over, sending my mind and body into a deep state of relaxation as the rest of the cathartic process continued in a more subdued manner. I continued with the steady rhythm typical of conscious connected breathing, expecting the session to come to a harmonious closure. However, what followed was completely unexpected, and has altered the course of my life profoundly. My breath began to increase in pace and was out of my control. With every inhale I experienced a distinct gush of energy. Inhale after inhale after inhale…the gush of energy increased in intensity like I was plugged into some source of high-voltage power. Very soon it almost became a roar in my head. I felt as though I was being electrocuted, energy rushing through my nerves and blood vessels and flowing out of me through the tips of my toes and fingers, the ends of my hair, right down to the ends of my eye-lashes! I cannot say it was an entirely pleasant experience to have this high-voltage current pass through my body. I had completely lost awareness of my surroundings including the presence of the facilitator. Suddenly, I heard a question rising from the deepest layers of my mind, as though it was a voice coming from very far away and yet very distinct and clear… “Is this enough or do you want more?” My rational logical mind was, by this time, left way behind and purely by instinct, I responded, “I want more!” No soo Anuradha Ramesh: Her encounter with Christ transformed her life I found myself in the presence of the Christ Consciousness! There was not an iota of doubt in my mind, it was Him. No other. There was no face or form that helped me recognise him from any picture or image I had ever seen of him. It was just pure light but with a distinct identity. There was a deep knowingness, a recognition that defied any logic or rationale. Though born and raised a ‘Tam-Brahm,’, I had been educated entirely in Catholic missionary institutions – school and college. And the pleasant, cheerful joyful energy that was in that moment engaging with me, was the farthest from the pain, suffering and dying for the sins of others with which I had associated Christ. What ensued was the most pleasant, cheerful and unlikely ‘conversation’ that I could have imagined! “I like what you did,” he said, “I like the way you took on the challenge of going up in flames if need be but did not give up! You see what I did with my life?! I like to take on challenges too.” And all the time He had what seemed to be a boyish glee on his face. Like we had both run a race and reached the finish line together! And I shot back, “Really? Is this what you have to say to me? You look so cheerful and seem to be such fun?!! But I have always thought of you to be sad and burdened?” After some casual banter on similar lines he delivered a message to me that has since given a completely new meaning to my existence. These words are etched in my psyche going all the way back to my soul, I believe… “You have come back to me and now you return You return as my channel…a channel of my energy Your every word, every touch will heal! A look from your eyes, your breath will heal! You are resurrected as a channel of healing.” A painting that represents Anuradha’s twin inspirations: Christ and Krishna What seemed like aeons later, when I returned to my senses and opened my eyes, my teacher was looking at me with widened eyes and an enigmatic smile. Before I uttered a single word, he said to me, “I don’t know what has been happening with you as you had stopped responding to me. However, I had the most amazing experience myself. As I watched over you, I had a vision of your heart chakra opening and Infant Jesus emerging through your heart. Anuradha, to me, it felt like I have witnessed the resurrection of Christ Consciousness!” This from a man who had no idea of what I had been through myself. Needless to say, I have dedicated my life to the mission that has been assigned to me. It is not a responsibility. It is not a duty. It is not a job or a career. It is truly my response to a calling from the highest source. I also deduced some fundamental truths about our present reality – truths that are both very personal and universal at the same time: Religious differences and religious identities have no relevance whatsoever when one is a seeker of truth. There is no prerequisite of ‘eligibility,’ no hierarchy in our relationship with the Absolute Source. Given how ‘non-religious’ I had been all my life, I was the least likely candidate in my own eyes to be chosen for an encounter such as this. I was only aware of a very strong deep yearning to find myself. All the guilt I was carrying about my ‘wrong’ thoughts and acts; the judgements I had passed on myself, were all proven to be null and void. There is absolutely no judgement up there, after all! I was striving to find my own truths and that was all that mattered. I learnt to be non-judgmental in a way that has now become the very ground of my being. My mind has become flexible and open to any possibility by virtue of the personal glimpse I had of my own potential that was hidden from me until then. All creative ideas are valid and worthy of exploration. Probably the biggest has been the sense of connectedness I feel towards all of humanity. Any corner of the world I travel to, any peoples, culture, religion, race, colour or creed I interact with, the feeling of oneness that I experience is undoubtedly the most fulfilling, valuable and meaningful gift that I possess today.
