Healing With Inspiration – Alternative & Holistic Health Service

“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them”....Walt Disney

Most of you know our entrepreneur for the month, Nandita Yedery for her painting artistry. I hope you have visited her art gallery and enjoyed her paintings on our website Please support our artists by visiting their galleries, following them on social media and referring them to friends & colleagues.

Besides being an artist-painter, Nandita is also an energy healer. I decided to spotlight her business ‘Healing with Inspiration – Alternative & Holistic Health Service’ for this month for its uniqueness. Her profession of energy healing intrigues me so much so that when I spoke to my daughters about it, they decided to have a session with Nandita.

Since their session, both my daughters have already booked their follow up sessions with her. I was curious and asked of their experience. They said it was very relaxing and an amazing experience and would encourage everyone to try a session. Just as we routinely visit our massage/physio therapist for aches and pains or take our pets to see a vet, energy healing also provides a similar effect. In their own words “unlike massage where it is dependent on how much pressure is exerted by the therapist, there is no physical contact in these sessions and yet it is so relaxing that we almost fell asleep.” Needless to say, I am booking a session with Nandita.

I was surprised when Nandita said she has been practising energy healing for over 25 years. It is a profession yet to gain prominence in the western world. She is a Reiki Master, Angelic Healing practitioner, Interspecies communicator, and a Healing Art Therapist. She follows Master Mikao Usui’s Reiki method of channeling healing and has international certification. Her sessions include a combination of Reiki with Archangel healing.

Reiki healing dates back about 2500 years and was forgotten for a long time. This energy healing method has its roots from India. It passed through Tibet and China to Japan where Dr. Mikao Usui rediscovered it. Energy healing experience gives real and profound results. As a channel, the practitioners can literally feel the energy flow through their hands. The client feels the warmth, some see colors, and some feel the vibration. They all find it very relaxing. It is a profound feeling which starts to positively change things around them, their body and life.

Archangel or Angelic healing is a form of Energy healing. Angelic beings are celestial intermediaries between God and humanity.  In Angelic Healing, the angels or archangels guide practitioners (therapists) while they work with the client. The therapist is a vessel to let the healing of the angels pass into the client. The therapist is open to this energy and is fully guided by the angels. 

Nandita talks about how she was drawn to it at an early age…“I always knew the direction of my path. As a child healing came naturally to me and I would unknowingly channel healing to stray animals.  As a young adult I came to know of it as Reiki and since then started training. I came across Archangel healing similarly and researched and started to self train initially and later started training from a teacher.  With guidance from higher beings, I am encouraged to learn more energy healing practices and I will soon start working with those modalities. Before I start my session, I connect to archangel energy, angelic beings, and spirit guides for their guidance and protection.

I do this work in a very high vibration room. This combination of abilities helps me work fluidly to see, understand, and access information which most often the client does not know, and in the case of animal clients they are unable to express to their owners. This pure positive high vibrational energy is channeled directly to the individual and their higher self”.

Nandita says, healing works on an individual’s free will and it is effective when one has faith, trust and one surrenders to the universal life force. She connects to Universal energy, which can also be channeled to plants, homes and business locations to increase the vibration; bring about positive outcomes; address health problems and illnesses. She is attuned to channel this healing energy and give direction. This gentle energy is highly recommended when one is dealing with stress, emotional issues and trauma effects which take physical form on their body.

Nandita also does Reiki facial for skin relaxion and regeneration. For specific pain related issues, energy is directly channeled to the root cause location, it eliminates the underlying energy imbalance that is causing the disease. Though healing results are not immediate in long and prolonged issues, and requires numerous sessions, yet it works wonders with every session.

As an Alternate Healing Practitioner, Nandita wants as many people to experience Reiki & Angel medicine healing. Her sessions are generally 30-40 mins long and are available on weekends: Sat – 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Sun – 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Charges are $50 & upwards for each session.

Clients can contact ‘Healing With Inspiration’ for either in-person or distance healing by email or by phone or text +1 905- 867-1845 or send a message by visiting her website here.  

I am looking forward to having my energy healing session…why not indulge yourselves for much needed relaxation?

Our entrepreneur for this month is someone whom we could all reach out to for help organizing our home, office, garage or any space we want decluttered. Generally when I spotlight an entrepreneur, my usual routine is to interview them and bring their story together. However, with Purnima Kamath, true to her business she was so organized even in her writing that I sent it straight to the printer!

In her own words is the journey of Cozy Organized Nook…Honestly, I didn’t even know Home Organizing was a thing! Just before moving to Canada, I was reading a book in which one of the characters was a Professional Organizer. As I read more about it, it felt like my calling. Anyway, I loved cleaning and keeping my house organized, so this was something I would enjoy doing and get paid for it!

As soon as we moved here, I went ahead to get my Certification as a Professional Organizer. Soon after, I started my company, Cozy Organized Nook. As excited as I was to start my venture, I was also clueless on where to start and how to find clients. The lockdown that started in December was a big blow to my fragile confidence in running a business. The frequent lockdown extensions brought me to tears as I was incurring business costs but wasn’t bringing in any returns.

What do I do as a Professional Organizer?

When I went into the course, I was skeptical that people would hire me to do such basic activities. I voiced my panic and concern to my mentors and they pointed out that what I feel is “basic and easy” may be a herculean task for another person. They said “Not everyone finds it enjoyable or has the time to do what you love to do.”

I now know, my mentors were indeed right. I see people riddled with anxiety and frustration over not being able to keep up with the household organization. 

As a Professional Organizer, I get to know every client and their family/ work dynamics so I can tailor solutions for them. I understand that each person and their situation is unique and that is how I offer solutions that work for them.

A lot of my clients are working parents and/ or those who love being outdoors. This means their home is often neglected and even if they want to, they cannot gain control over their clutter and mess. Most of them need a guide to tell them exactly what to do and how.

When I enter their space, I encourage them to declutter and get rid of things that have been collected over the years. My main goal is to have them cut down on the amount of things they own that they do not need in their daily lives. It is interesting to note how easily they let go of things with me by their side to coach them. All they need is a gentle nudge in the right direction.

I help my clients create space and bring function into their home that suits their lifestyle. I believe in giving each client that “AHA!” moment when they witness the beauty and full potential of their home. I love how at the end of my project, my clients are ecstatic over not just the physical transformation but also the mental shift that has come about in the process. Initially, I used to think I’d be proud of myself for delivering a successful session. However, nothing pleases me more than seeing that my clients undergo a change and take control of their space. It is rewarding when my clients tell me they are already starting to feel better when I’m still not done completing the project with them”

I know we can all use Purnima’s help to transform our spaces. Her anxiety as she launched her business just before the pandemic appears to be just that. She has been busy with clients since the economy has opened seeking her help to transform their homes, de-stress and enjoy the place we call home. Please visit her website and her FB & Instagram @cozyorganizednook. We wish Purnima much success in her venture.

I have met so many who all have dreams and I am always impressed with the many who have made it come alive. One of them happens to be my own sister Padma (Surya) Kamath. Since childhood she had a dream to start her own business, and as she grew older and acquired all her experiences and qualifications, her determination grew stronger.

In addition, Padma’s passion and determination to have her own identity in the marketplace has led to the creation of 2 unique brands NAavya and NAAV.
