I have been blessed by the support and deep respect and affection of my family, friends, clients and my well-wishers. Of course, I have faced many challenging times but each of these periods brought into my life at least one person who not only helped through the challenge but forever changed the way I look at things. The unstinting love of my husband, children, my sister and my parents have made me grateful for everything that has come my way. In many ways I would call my life ‘charmed’ because along with the difficult times, there have been manifestations of my desires in ways that I can only describe as ‘divine intervention’.
How did it all come about? How did your spiritual journey begin?
It began well over 20 years ago! And what a journey it has been. At that time, my ignorance termed it as coincidence, but now greater awareness has taught me that coincidence is an event that we co-create with a higher divine power. When I was in college, I met a young man who today is truly my best friend. Sohrab Ardeshir told me then of a lady, Meheru Gandhi, a medium, who would hold meetings at his home twice a week, attended by Sohrab’s mom and a few women. He would insist that I come and witness this auto-writing meeting, which honestly, I was not keen on doing.
Several years after leaving college (and politely refusing Sohrab each time he asked), my sister, who was facing very difficult personal times, agreed to meet Meheru, as Sohrab insisted that ‘the Masters’ would help my sister. My sister begged me to come with her, as she was quite spooked with the idea of an auto-writing meeting. I jumped at this, thinking I was ‘killing two birds with one stone’, as Sohrab would finally stop asking me to attend. I smile as I think back on this.
As it turned out, the Masters asked my sister to return the next day, and wrote through Meheru that this meeting had been engineered in this way to break through my resistance, and bring me there. I was dismayed to say the least, and felt a little annoyed as well. Divine masters and tricks!!! Well, she proceeded to write with her master whom she called Bright Light Sir (and whom I would very soon come to love and respect deeply). He wrote that I had been a Divine Worker of Light for all my incarnations and the time to continue this work had come round once again. Really all of this sounded like a whole lot of gobbledy-gook to me, and when she wrote that I should join their circle and start my ‘training’ process, I was certain that I was doing no such thing. ‘Please!’ I thought, ‘I have better things to do with my life!’
Of course the Universe cannot be denied, and the paths that we have chalked for ourselves cannot be resisted. My husband, who had never evinced any interest in anything spiritual, not only urged me to go, but also said that he would accompany me on all the meetings. He finally persuaded me to ‘try it for two months’. Hahaha, two months turned into over two years. Two years of understanding that this arrogant, brash, hot-tempered, person was not ‘me’ at all. I saw and painfully broke through my very high walls. And then all of a sudden, one day, Bright Light made Meheru put down her pen and push the book over to me, and said ‘Write’. I was terrified at the thought, but Meheru (to whom I shall be eternally grateful) insisted that if the Master said I was ready, I was not to question this decision. And sure enough, I began auto-writing and then proceeded to trance channel, as though I had been doing it for always (which of course I had been). A few months later, the Master said that I now had to start my own circle. Doing what? I questioned. Again I received a stern look from Meheru who reminded me that my stubbornness and need to control had to still be worked at.
There started a journey that effortlessly, without any ‘trying’ on my part, brought hundreds upon thousands into my life. Along with my job as a schoolteacher, my role as medium, channel, mentor, life coach, spiritual counselor and healer proceeded entirely driven by a Divine Hand. During the course of this beautiful journey, my life was enhanced by the presence of my personal master, the Infinite One (St.Peter), and the Cosmic OverLord Lord Sananda, whom I lovingly refer to as JadeFire. As mentor, I was honoured to facilitate and set upon their spiritual journeys beautiful souls like Divyaa Kummar, Sohrab Ardeshir, and Zafar, to name just a few.
Along the way my resistance has fallen, my ego has been tempered, my arrogance destroyed, and the love that hid in my heart has flowered so beautifully that I smile gently, and in gratitude, each time I hear this comment, ‘Ell, your hug is so deep, so warm, and so healing.’ There was a time I found it so difficult to give and receive a hug! Yes, I’ve come a long way.
Would you like to share some of your key achievements and accomplishments?
All of my achievements have come through Divine Intervention. I have not attended any classes and have no ‘formal training’, but over the years I have mastered esoteric astrology, esoteric healing, and esoteric psychology that have opened up the lives and cleared the blocks of so many through soul charts, light initiations, and soul intervention in relationship issues, and deep inner child blockages. I am joyous about the books I have written And Jade Fire Said, and His Hand In Mine, as well as my YouTube Channel ‘Ellaeenah JadeFire’ that in such a short time has received over 3,00,000 hits, and each day brings me the happiness of reading comments from all over the world, of how my inspired meditations and channelings have helped to heal and enlighten.
Of all of them, what are you proudest of today?
Can anyone be more or less proud of any of our achievements? Is any achievement smaller than the others? I am truly joyous of the fact that not a day goes by without my having served another in any manner that they might need. I am grateful for the hundreds of young minds that I have been blessed to infuse with Light, and the young hearts that have seen how special they really are. They called me ‘teacher’ but it is they who taught me so much.
Looking back, how do you think you have changed since your advent into spirituality?
The process of change is still on, but these are the branches:
Arrogance to humility
Aggressive defensiveness to open-hearted love
Ignorance to understanding
Intolerance to patience
Control to acceptance
How would you define yourself today?
I define myself as I AM…anything else placed after those words would only limit my journey of self-empowerment and empowerment of others.
How would you define spirituality?
Enjoying all the earthly gifts with a heart that is open to service, a mind that seeks constant expansion, and a life where fun and laughter are as important as commitment and dedication to the SPIRIT. It is about LIGHTly enjoying every aspect of life, and not getting ‘too serious’ about this so-called spiritual path (is there really any other? Does spirit not guide all paths, even those that we judge as ‘too materialistic’?) and not being sullied by self-aggrandisement.
How has spirituality influenced the way you live your life?
I live life more fully, more completely, but the most important influence has been in the area of judgment. Yes, of course, I am still caught in conflicts of different natures but in all of these, my quest is ‘ how did I cause this to happen? Why did I cause this happen? What deep pain of the other can I serve to heal?’
How has it helped you handle your success and popularity?
There was a time many years ago when the success and popularity that I now enjoy would have made me puff out my chest and fluff out my feathers. Now I am humbled each time I meet a stranger and I hear ‘Oh, you are the Ellaeenah we have heard about’. I am humbled because I know that it is because I have walked, and am walking the path of my chosen soul mission, that my name has fallen on so many ears. I am grateful that the popularity I enjoy brings to me each day so many people from different parts of the world, whom I am so blessed to serve. So how do I handle this success? I say thank you each night for the blessings I have received.
What about its impact on the way you deal with money?
There was a time I got sucked into the belief of ‘spiritual’ people that the work we do should never be charged for. I followed this diligently. Suddenly my husband and I began to face monetary problems, which we just couldn’t account for. They seemed obviously ‘divinely engineered’ to draw our attention to something. I spoke of this to my dear friend Roxanne Marker who was also amazingly connected with Divine Mind. She instantly drew my attention to the fact that I was functioning out of a negative ego that claimed by my actions, that my spiritual work was not worthy of being valued in monetary terms. She spoke to me at length about how foolish I was being. From the very next day, I began to charge a fee (even though I cringed each time I did so). Again, suddenly, without doing anything to change our monetary situation, the problems just disappeared. This taught me that we put so much false importance upon money. In this world of ours it is a yardstick of value. Simple. No more, no less. Denying it or greedily running after it, both show how much we lack in our value of who we are within.
How do you cope with health issues today?
I first understand what I have been blind to which has brought about the health issue and proceed to change that. But I am not foolishly against medicine. I do believe that there is nothing in this world that is not part of a Divine Plan, and so when I am intuitively guided to do so, I shall take Bach flower remedies and homeopathy, or a few sessions of acupuncture. Allopathic medicines are also taken without resistance when I need to.
Have you made any changes to your diet and eating habits?
A few years ago I realised that I had not been ‘fair’ with my body. I had taken it far more for granted than I should have. I have made changes in my diet, like reducing harmful carbohydrates, fats and such, and following regular detoxifying procedures through juices, and coconut oil and apple cider vinegar.
Have the things that made you happy changed?
Not really. I am doing all the things I’ve always loved…I just don’t cling to them anymore.
What is your daily routine like?
What are your priorities in life?
Family (my pup is a part of this), and Self, work, friends.
How do you stay fit?
Ahh, I wish I could say that I do something for this. But all my good intentions of gym, and yoga have come to naught. Now my pup keeps me fit!
What spiritual practice do you follow?
Being the best ME I can be in every moment. Isms of any kind don’t work for me.
What is the source of your inspiration?
Jade Fire, Sai, Mother Mary, Meher Baba. And my children and my husband.
