I love this cute Yoga center in Santa Clarita. I know we all are practicing social distancing but felt like sharing another writing article I wrote for LA Yoga Magazine and sharing this great yoga studio.
Charming Old Town Newhall has a rich history. It’s a community whose present has just become richer with Rising Lotus Yoga Santa Clarita.
Rising Lotus Yoga, the vibrant studio located in Sherman Oaks and co-founded by Daniel Stewart and Claire Hartley in 2006, is expanding with an oasis for practice in the heart of the Santa Clarita Valley. Rising Lotus Yoga Santa Clarita Co-Owners Claire Hartley and Santa Clarita native Heather Riggen have come together to create this space that promotes the unity and awareness inherent in yoga. They exude enthusiasm with their mission to provide a yoga experience that is joyful, immersive, and creates a sense of ease for students.

Some of the classes offered at Rising Lotus Yoga Santa Clarita include: Urban Zen, which features Reiki as well as the use of essential oils; several Restorative yoga classes to quiet and relax the mind and body; and the studio’s signature Flow Yoga class. In the Flow class, students move from pose to pose with variations that encourage deep strength and a greater range of motion.

This was written for SF Yoga Magazine. After meeting and conducting an interview with Wanda Pratnicka, Ph.D.
It was purely magical to not only meet Wanda Pratnicka, Ph.D. in person, but to also interview her. It was beyond amazing. She has helped tens of thousands of people around the world who have suffered from mental disturbances and physical illnesses that were considered to be incurable. Wanda’s unique ability is that she is able to diagnose and remove spirit entities, aka ghosts, from people remotely; no matter where a person is located. For more than forty five years she has been engaged in the field of psychology of the soul and freeing people of dependencies between themselves and ghosts, by cleansing them of these entities, negative energy and even curses. Wanda is an international lecturer and author of several books. I love her title, as she calls herself a Therapist for Ghosts. Here is what Wanda shared with us:
I love how you express that you are a therapist for ghosts and for people. It’s true that they both need the same care, understanding and the same dose of love.
We are most often possessed by ghosts that overlooked their death. You may be puzzled by the possibility that one could overlook their own death. However, the moment of death, happens very quickly, not much changes after leaving one’s physical body which confuses many souls because they often had different expectations around dying. Even people who were sick and bedridden can still miss their moment of death. They come to believe that they suddenly, miraculously recovered because they feel much better and lighter. They come back to their families and want to speak with them as they used to do when they were alive, but find that nobody answers them back. After some time these souls start to run out of energy and the best source of energy is another living person. A person who is already short of energy, such as someone who is physically sick, emotionally exhausted, or under the influence of mind-altering substances is the easiest target.
Also, a person who despairs over a loss of a loved one and who constantly says: “Stay, don’t go, I cannot live without you,” may very quickly attract a soul who didn’t transition to the other side. Grief and longing are the strongest cuffs that chain the dead to the living. Only the appropriate therapy, love and understanding, helps to loosen the ties and enable a ghost to leave, especially when the reason for possession is lack of forgiveness, longing or the wish for revenge. It requires a great amount of patience and skills to make both sides understand how they attracted each other and what they need to learn in order to freely and independently move on with their lives.
Do you think the majority of mental illness and homelessness is caused by the presence of ghosts in a person?
Based on forty five years of personal research and thousands of cases treated, I can confidently state that almost all mentally ill people have ghosts attached to them, although ghosts are not always the cause of their illness. Ghosts sometimes take advantage of the mentally ill person—they are an easy target—and attach themselves. Another way to think about it is remembering the phrase: What came first? The chicken or the egg? In my work, we could say What came first? Mental illness or a ghost?
The case with homeless people is more complex. Some people end up on the streets because of mental illnesses (they have ghosts attached which prevents them from functioning well), addictions, tough financial circumstances or at times it is a matter of choice. Homelessness is rarely caused by possession. Ordinarily, problems existed already that could have attracted ghosts and as a consequence the person ended up homeless and unable to take care of himself properly.
Is it possible for ghosts to influence behavior and lead people to dependence on alcohol, drugs, as well as to many other unwanted acts?
After the death of a physical body, the soul still has the same qualities and addictions as it used to have when alive. For example, if a person was addicted to alcohol, it will still feel a strong desire to drink alcohol after death. Obviously, it knows that the only way to satisfy the addiction is through another human being so it searches for one to attach itself to. Bars and nightclubs are filled with ghosts who are just waiting to take advantage of a drinking person. If that happens, people can become addicted to alcohol, drugs, sex, work, gambling, computer games and many others negative habits. A person, who never had any addictions before, suddenly becomes strongly addicted and is not able to control herself. In most cases, after a ghost is led away, people become instantly free of their addiction; they don’t suffer from a drug withdrawal or feel the need to come back to it. It is exactly the same with any other negative behavior such as: phobias, obsessions or eating disorders.
Can you tell us about Remote Spirit Release? Is it similar to the art form of Reiki or the ancient healing art Sat Nam Rasayan?
No, it has nothing to do with Reiki or Sat Nam Rasayan. On the contrary, people come to me, who became possessed after they had tried Reiki or other spiritual practices. If I would attempt to lead away ghosts from possessed person in their presence I would expose both them and myself to pain and suffering because the possessed person and ghost would resist my efforts. This is the primary reason I remove ghosts from a distance. I can work then from a spiritual plane, where there is neither time nor space, and I can reach a person and a ghost possessing him or her as if they were sitting in front of me. During the removal process, neither one of them is aware when I will exactly do it. This is why I get very good results because it is painless and stress free to all the parties involved. Also, people don’t have to spend time and money to travel to see me, because I only need their first and last name, address and date of birth in order to connect with them and be able to lead ghosts away from them.
When did you write the book Know the Truth and Be Free? Do you channel the wisdom contained here in this book? Is it a helpful book to aid past traumatic experience that follow the passing of loved ones?
The book was published in 2012. I didn’t channel the wisdom contained in any of my books. I always have access to higher knowledge, so I don’t have to attach to anyone to get it. Certainly, Know the Truth and Be Free, as well as the remaining four of my books, help to heal traumatic experiences from this and previous lives. Know the Truth and Be Free especially helps to heal wounds after the death of a loved one. Suffering after losing a loved one often comes from the wrong belief that we have lost them forever. Death, however, is only a passing through the door leading to the next classroom where we continue our lessons. This is one reason why it is very important that we have to let the beloved soul continue its journey.
How can you tell when someone has a ghost or entity attached to them?
I am not the only one who can recognize that someone has a ghost/entity attachment to them. Everybody can, when they are around a possessed person. First of all, we don’t feel comfortable in their company. We feel sick, fatigued, cold, and repelled by them. We would rather be somewhere else. People close to a possessed person can see changes in their behavior and sometimes even in their looks. They often describe a possessed person as if they have ‘evil looking eyes’. A possessed person avoids people or becomes hostile towards them. Other symptoms of possession are: lack of energy, depression, anxiety, lack of control over emotions, frequent outbursts of anger, frequent headaches/stomach aches, mood swings, addictions, suicidal thoughts, relationship problems, etc. There are many additional symptoms which I described in detail in my first book “Possessed by Ghosts – Exorcisms in the 21st Century.” According to a recent study, every sixth person has a ghost/entity attached to them. Therefore, this problem is a lot more common than we think. Entity attachment is one of the most unknown, controversial, disregarded and misunderstood forms of spiritual and energetic illness.
What would be the procedure to remove unwanted entities lurking around in your electromagnetic field?
Since the astral world penetrates the physical, ghosts can be everywhere. If we don’t look into their world we are safe and ghosts cannot reach us thanks to our aura protection. If, however, we break Universal Laws and attract ghosts in one way or another, we attract problems at the same time that sometimes transform into real tragedies. When it is so, only cleansing of ghosts by someone like me, an exorcist, can help, because the person possessed is not able to raise her vibrations above the astral plane, which means that she is not able to free herself of ghosts.

It is a time of growth and renewal, a time for breakthroughs into new levels of being for each of us individually. It is a time that is jam-packed with awesome potential.
In past centuries, only a few people would have the consciousness to experience their divinity within the human form. Now all of humanity has that potential. We are moving and creating our lives within the power of Divine Light. This allows us each of us to access pure alignment to the Source of All That Is.
Within you there is a place of such Peace that you can totally relax there and allow it to soak through your being. Within you is Truth and Joy, allow yourself to experience this place within, where you can be free just to be. It is as close as your breath. And it is with your breath, and the power of your thoughts and imagination, that you can begin to experience your Higher Self and your connection to the Divine.

Beautiful Mala necklaces hold a special significance for the wearer based on where they’re from, the power imbibed into them. All in all we feel and experience an energy resonance while holding the beads and this increases over time as we wear and use them for meditation.
Traditionally a mala means garland and has 108 beads strung together and one guru bead, in the very center, symbolic of the light and the teacher who helps lift our awareness making us self-reliant and independent. The guru bead is also a marker for your fingers during meditation and mantra repetition and you’ll feel it easily while using the mala with your eyes closed.
A common way to use the mala is to engage in a japa, or mantra meditation. The repetitive recitation of a single sound, such as om, a few words, such as om so ham, or your personal mantra which can be deeply transformative is done once per bead. Tracing the beads of the mala with your fingers can help you keep track of japa, and you can set an intention to repeat one, two or three malas per day as a start.
Similar to praying with rosary beads, meditating with a mala helps calm the mind, deepens the breath and gradually re-directs focus of the mind away from daily worries and towards positive and spiritual thought patterns.
Meditation is well known to positively affects the brain and mood. However finding the time and practice that enables us to be still, calm and focused for 10 minutes or more is generally quite challenging. This is where your mala and mantra are essential tools for achieving better attention, wellness and enhanced self-awareness.
Check out our online jewelry boutique. We feature three different types of malas.

Be Grateful for all that you are. It takes discipline and effort to switch to a different channel where we can look from a higher perspective with more gratitude. When we do this, it can take us directly into our hearts, and then from our heart’s intelligence we are able to create from a more resourceful place.
Gratitude is the attitude that gives us the inspiration we need so we can feel more love and appreciation for our lives. That is because Gratitude is a powerful energy surge that raises our vibrational frequencies to the level where we can see beyond the immediate appearance of disharmony to the truth of the dynamic force of the Divine working in our lives.
This expansive presence of Divine Pure Potential can work with us to create a life that is more in keeping with what we want to experience. It responds to our thoughts and feelings directly. In the new energy system in which we are living, we have clear choices about how we want to live. At this time of heightened energy frequencies, we have been given a blank slate where we can formulate our lives. We do this by asking the Universe to work through us so we can be in alignment with the highest wisdom of our Soul. Though this may sound simple, because of our habitual ways of thinking, it takes an extreme focus of attention on what we truly want to experience instead of what we don’t like about ourselves and the lives we are living.
Our focus of attention is a powerful tool, simple but not easy; The magnetic energy of our thoughts and feelings is the seed that creates attraction to a different experience. That is why keeping our energy frequencies as uplifted as possible makes such a difference in what we are experiencing in life. When there is nothing else we can think of to do, being grateful can be the key that turns the tides of our feelings into the channels of new life and wellbeing. It is an amazing and powerful tool just waiting for us to put it into action. With this simple tool you can transform your world as you become more grateful for all that you already have in your life and what is being offered to you from All That Is.

When you live your life from a vibration of love that love has to flow first of all through you to then be expressed towards others. Therefore, when you accept love in all its forms, you are accepting the love of your divinity.
Your authentic self is you expressing as your soul. As you listen to your intuition you are listening to your soul or source. When you are authentic, you are talking, living, creating from a place that resonates with you and helps you to feel good. When you are in balanced alignment, you feel good! When you feel good, you are authentic in your life and how you express yourself.
love, k 🙂
