More than people in their 50s or 60s, it is the younger ones, mostly aged
between 25 to 40 years who visit Madhu Kotiya frequently. The problems range
from career planning to stress management and confidence issues. Kotiya suggests
them the therapy that can help them deal with their body and mind better. Apart
from tarot reading, reiki and coffee cup reading, Kotiya specialises in
spiritual and candle flame healing. She says that the methods are getting
popular among the youngsters as the healing process, is not about temporary
eradication of the problem, "it is finding the root cause, cleansing the system
and the aura."
Kotiya defines spiritual healing as a process, "where we work with the inner energies of the body, invoke the angels using crystals or any other forms and clear the aura. It works at the physical and mental level of the body." Chakra balancing is also one aspect of the treatment. "The solution ranges from a person to person. We need to go back to the history and also assess the thinking process of the person before actually starting the treatment. For example, there was a girl who came with an acne problem. She had tried every kind of medicine on her face, but nothing really helped her. When she started taking sessions with me and I started interacting with her I found out she was full of aggression. She always thought that her parents treated her and her brother differently and he is given more attention at home. All these things remained in her mind and they kept growing, resulting in anxiety and aggression that she was not able to share with anyone. So I started counseling her and more than medicines, speaking to her and clearing the negativity from her mind and body helped in curing the problem. Her acne, that was recurring, are now cured completely because the root cause doesn’t exist now," explained Kotiya and stressed that in most of the cases, talking to the person helps.
The healer says that the best part of spiritual healing is that while eradicating one major problem or disease, it increases the self confidence in the person and "the person automatically learns how to handle stress". Kotiya says that spiritual healing is an ancient method and it can be referred to anything that doesn’t uses physical means of treatment and works on the atmosphere around you. "In our daily lives, we do not realise but we allow so much of negativity to exist around us. So in spiritual healing we try to work with the energies that are stored within and also are present around a person," said Kotiya. She informed that there have been some studies proving that spiritual healing benefits the cancer patients, new moms, people suffering from depressive disorders and cardiac patients among many others.
The other method that is getting popular is the candle flame healing. "Candle flame healing is for some problems which people think are not in their hands. Like if someone wants to change a job or some relationship problems. In candle flame healing, the candle is chanted upon and we have to meditate. The method differs depending on the problem that we are addressing through candle flame healing," shared Kotiya, who also combines therapy of tarot and energy healing as a wonderful treatment for depression, fears, confusions in life, phobias and many other problems and health issues. She is also an expert in past life regression reading and dream interpretation.
