MEETING SRI CHINMOY
Sri Chinmoy († 2007) was an Indian spiritual guru who had thousands of students in about 60 countries. Over the years Sri Chinmoy had ongoing friendships with well-known personalities among others Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa and Desmond Tutu. In 2007, he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
In a program created in 1998 known as ‘Lifting up the world with a Oneness Heart’, Sri Chinmoy lifted people of inspiration and spirit while they stood on a platform overhead. He described his motivation: „I lift them up to show my appreciation for their achievements“. During his life he lifted more than 7000 people, including Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, Muhammad Ali, Sting and Richard Gere.
In 2003 Sri Chimnoy was on a spiritual mission in Bali. He had heard about Sami and his special skills from a number of his students who had already experienced Sami’s treatment. Therefore Sami was invited to get lifted from Sri Chinmoy in Sanur. In this way he appreciated Sami’s special qualities and as well his spiritual power. When they met, Sami felt so small towards Sri Chinmoy.
A few days later, Sami got invited again. This time to give Sri Chinmoy a massage. During the treatment Sami was crying the whole time, even he was in a greatful and peaceful state.
The encounter with Sri Chinmoy was a new beginning for Sami. Until this day he was still worried about wheater he is heading in the right direction or not. Sri Chinmoy motivated him and helped him to grow spiritually. Since this time Sami strives to do the best in his life. Even they didn’t meet again, Sri Chinmoy became Sami’s spiritual guru and is still a big inspiration for him today.
MEETING SRI CHINMOY
We first met Samiratha (Sami) in 2009 during a visit to Bali which was to help me rest and recover from a recent breast cancer operation and before I returned home for radiation treatment.
In a worried and weakened state, I decided to try the services of the resort’s resident masseur/healer, who happened to be Pak Sami.
As soon as Sami commenced his treatment I felt it was different and trusted him immediately. I also felt a sense of peace and faith unlike I had ever experienced before. We then moved to a villa and I asked if Sami would treat me again. My husband also decided to have a series of massages which he thought were of a very high standard.
I returned to Bali after the radiation treatment to recuperate and once again Sami visited me regularly and talked to me in his quiet and knowledgeable manner, building up my strength and health.
Next, John and I invited Sami to come and stay with us in our home in Perth and this was permitted by our authorities on the grounds of Samiratha assisting in my treatment after breast cancer.
By now he was considered a trusted friend by both of us and our family. Over the last five years I have seen Sami on a number of stays in Bali and remain convinced that he has special qualities and healing powers. He is also very honest and likeable.
My husband suffered a stroke four months ago and as soon as he is strong enough to travel, I hope he can be in the care of Samiratha as part of his extensive rehabilitation programme.
Due to a life changing situation, I decided to travel to Indonesia. Thanks to the recommendation of a friend of mine, I went into Sami’s treatment.
By his treatment I learned why certain things had happened to me in life.
Based on the Wu Xing (theory of the five elements) he helped me figure out things I didn’t know about myself before. And yes, it actually made sense.
The massages were very intense and effective. In the consultation after, I found out which way is the best for myself in the future.
I believe that in the end only we can heal ourselves. But Sami is an amazing teacher and guide. Without him I would not be where I am now.
Thanks a lot Sami. I am very happy that I met you!
A stroke overnight paralyzed the right side of the body from the face to foot. Due to my satisfaction with Sami’s work with another problem years before, I immediately went to Sami, still paralyzed on my right side.
Sami used a team of four therapists and himself commencing with reflexi along with deep tissue and nerve massage on a multitude of sites on my body, followed by suction therapy on the acupuncture points. The first day’s treatment was for two hours, which is equivalent to about 100 person-hours. I was able to walk, be it carefully, back home over five kilometres.
Each visit from then on had other procedures and techniques employed, such as electric acupuncture, ordinary acupuncture and cup suction on the body’s median lines of energy equivalent to the acupuncture locations. The therapy continued apace daily, including manipulations, for about a week then reducing in frequency to every two then every third day for a total of less than twenty days.
My life has continued with virtually no obvious after affects [even the mouth dribbling when awake or sleeping ceased], other than the right leg was not able to retain its muscle thickness equivalent to its left counterpart. It was proof it was a stroke, as verified by brain scans in later years.
About fifteen years later, a progressive numbness and paralysis, which started in the feet and moved up the legs, incapacitated the ability to walk. A diagnosis was not ascertained by the Specialists. My feet began to itch but the Doctors did not follow through, but it progressed to redness then numbness of the toes, then onto the feet, ankles then slowly up the legs. Eventually, because the brain was not receiving information from the feet, the legs were not receiving instructions were to position themselves. Because the brain was in the dark, it automatically made my torso lean close to the ground to reduce the potential damage of a fall. I had not noticed this slow compensating factor, other than a sore back. I comprehended the seriousness of the affliction when my knuckles were touching the ground [literally]. Admission to hospital, for a week, to find a cause, resulted. In that time, numerous tests gave little clue to the ailment. The Specialists suspected multiple sclerosis, but it was not so. They knew it to be a nerve problem, but not the cause. On leaving the hospital I flew to Bali on the next day to commence treatment with Sami and his professional assistant.
On arrival in Bali I needed assistance to leave the plane, and was back to my knuckles touching ground, my feet entirely numb being also cold to touch. My legs continued to be desperate for instructions from my brain. Sami used a blunt instrument on my feet to try to touch a nerve. It was to no avail, so he changed to the toes on both feet without initial success. With more pressure that had my body sliding up the treatment table, eventually I felt a nerve lightly respond. Sami had his starting position. The reactive toe received reflexi massage treatment by his professional assistant, while he worked on other parts of the leg where he knew that nerve travailed. The result was more and more feeling returning. He returned to other toes, progressively finding small responses as the initial toe’s nerves acted like a catalyst to the others to respond, too. After three hours of them both working on me, I was able to walk out reasonably straight. Overnight, the restored feelings continued, but overall they were numb generally to walk on, unless one touched the toes with some pressure.
Day Two, another three hour regimen of intense muscle and nerve reflexi massage, but some colour was apparent in the toes and sides of the feet, while the legs were no longer without feelings, for I could feel the wind.
Day Three, and a friend commented I was walking upright, and I confirmed this in the knowledge that I was looking over the tops of the heads of other pedestrians. It was another three hour regimen of intense muscle and nerve reflexi massage by them both, excruciatingly painful, but a pain that is a good feeling, because you know the symptoms are being relieved.
Day Four, on this day, because Sami was so used to my feet feeling cold, he pulled his hands away at the shock of intense heat emanating from my feet. Both were so hot. Here was proof the blood circulation was returning. At this stage, Sami added other therapies, in particular the suction caps, to draw blood circulation and nerve response.
Day Five was a day of rest for everyone from my body, at least.
Day Six was another three-hour regime being repeated. The good news was whilst the feet remained reddish, they had become a healthy pink. The feet responded to touch, but it was like being touched through a shield, like paper. Sami was throwing every technique he knew at these blockages, and was winning.
Day Seven, and another reversal of stages of numbness became apparent. Numbness had receded to some feelings, then daily more sensitivity. Regression to heat and blood flow occurred followed by the skin returning to health. The body was close to full faculties. But this day, itchiness returned, itchiness being the first stage of the paralysis.
Day Eight, walking was good, and without erratic movements, because the brain was receiving sensual feedback to control balance and movement. By the end of this session, being seven intensive days, the itchiness had also receded, the feet remained pink and I could walk properly.
Certainly, a person’s should seek medical advice from their Doctor, preferably in conjunction with Sami’s skills, and that is what I am doing. I hope the Specialist doctors will discover the cause and a remedy of those ailments that recur, but in the meantime, Sami is resolving many, and providing relief for the few recurring ones.
When my feet begin to tingle or itch, then I know it is time for follow-up deep muscle and nerve restoration, presently about every six months, which is the same as good dental maintenance.
Master Chy was recommended to me by a friend who was suffering severe neck pain. He said that he had never felt so lucky as the day he found him and received a treatment. His pain was alleviated profoundly and over the years he marvelled more and more at who Samiratha was as a healer and inspiration for his community.
Being a massage therapist myself, when the fortunate day came that I was able to meet and receive a treatment I considered myself very blessed. Not only did I experience the benefits of his intuitive treatment, I also made an incredible spiritual connection with a man whose vision and depth goes beyond the average understanding of medicine and energy.
Samiratha ‘s knowledge, care and skill as a healer is truly precious and rare.
Thanks Sammy for all you give.
In 2010 I spent several months in Bali. When i visited a friend in hospital, I took a nasty gift from there: I have taken bacteria which left red blisters on my whole body and caused heavy itching.
The dermatologist, I went subsequently diagnosed an allergy and gave me medication. But when there was no improvement, I went to hospital. However they detected an allergy too and tried to correct it with medication. Without success.
Meanwhile I alredy had up to 600 red blisters on my whole body and especially my arms and legs were completely affected by it. At this time I wasn’t able to walk anymore and had to stay in bed all the time because my strength had completely left. A friend of mine finally brought me to a hospital (because I didn’t think I will make it) where they found out that I have MRSA (Methicillin-resistent Staphylococcus aureus) and treated me with antibiotics and multiple injections.
After 4 days they discharged me from hospital and after a few more days my disease seemed to be overcome. But only a few weeks later the problems came back. So I went to another doctor who gave me injections and medication too. Nevertheless there was no improvent.
Over the following eight weeks I was cuffed to the bed due to lack of power. I also had lost all my fingernails and accordingly my hope to find help one day. It was an horrible feeling to be exposed to a disease no one can help you with.
Then I stumbled on Sami and went into treatment with him. With his full body reflexology treatment he brought back my weakened immune system. After the first session he further gave me the advice to strengthen my immune system by remaining in motion even if I have no power. In addition I stopped taking all the medication in order to regenerate my damaged liver and kidney. In between the 3 weeks of intensive treatment I got massaged every 2-3 days and treated with herbals and bloodsuckers. So my condition improved continuously. And finally after a few more sessions my suffering was over. Today I have no more problems with my skin and I can enjoy my life here in Bali to the fullest.
I thank Sami from the heart, that he brought back hope in such difficult times and helped me to get completely well.
