Anusha has been a spiritual seeker for nearly her entire lifetime. Over 11 years, she has also extensively studied areas of Nutrition, Ayurveda, Naturopathy, EFT Matrix Re-imprinting, Feng Shui, Vedic Astrology, Chinese Astrology, I Ching, Reiki and Pranic Healing. But life wasn’t always wonderful. Anusha battled crippling health for almost 20 years, whilst working in finance and the corporate world. Her life was on hold, with chronic physical pain and frequent hospitalisations, leaving her with feelings of hopelessness and isolation. However, now in her 40s, she has reversed three health conditions by natural means and finally enjoys physical and emotional health. Anusha is passionate about guiding others to their maximum health and wellbeing, showing them that with the right tools, this gift can totally be achieved naturally by everyone.
How did your spiritual search begin?
My mother always had a spiritual yearning and when I was very young, she took courses with José Silva. José is the creator of The Silva Method, a self-help and meditation program that claims to increase an individual’s intuition and natural psychic abilities, such as clairvoyance. This is done through accessing deeper states of mind and from the development of higher brain functions.
Back then, she had no child support and so had to take me with her to the sessions. As a six-year-old, I recall that they used to let me sit at the back of the class, colouring-in and reading; not knowing what I was actually listening to at the time. The Silva method teachers began to notice that I was picking up core concepts and began to ask me questions; they were then inspired to start a children’s program in the UK. I was in the first children’s UK cohort and subjected to hours of vigorous meditation methods. I was given incredible understandings of accessing my consciousness and brain re-wiring and up-levelling techniques. As a six-year-old, I found it incredibly challenging though, to sit and focus for hours. I do recall a huge amount of fidgeting whilst they put me through their programs! The other children were a few years older, 10 to 13 years old, and seemed to sit effortlessly or fall asleep soundly whilst I was itching to move around and play. I trained with them for years, in a couple of countries, until I was around ten years old. And it is only now that I can truly comprehend the immense gifts this gave me.
This is a very unique experience for a child. Did it affect your schooling at all? Or with making friends?
Despite an extremely abusive and toxic household, I was able to tap into higher brain functions, psychic abilities, fearlessness, creativity and problem solving and went on to win the academic award of the year of the entire school! Now, to be clear – I was never the traditional academic, and rarely got a string of A grades. I was the B grader on most days. But my dear mentor and headteacher was able to see something beyond grades, which genuinely surprised us all! I remember going up to collect the award and looking around thinking, “They must have made a mistake here!”.
With all of my subconscious training, I was able to perform activities with relative ease and I had a particular awareness within my dreams, such as the ability to heal others, whilst astral flying. As an only child, I recall being excited to discuss with the other children at school their astral experiences. But it felt starkly lonely to find that the other children found my stories unrelatable. So, I learned very quickly that it was not something we were supposed to talk about. I lost my ability as I got older. I’ve now learned that so many children also have, but suppress this natural ability
During my university years, I did very little academic study. I was busy seeped in spiritual knowledge and practice. I can only explain it as a deep hunger and I embarked on a journey to study Buddhism, Sufism, Islam, Hinduism, Christianity, Hare Krishna, Raja Yoga, Rosicrucianism, Theosophy and the Kabbalah. I attended study circles, reading numerous religious and spiritual texts and engaging in their practices to feel if they aligned with my inner self. I found myself completely enchanted by all things spiritual. Nearly every time I walked into a place of spirituality, the lead was absolutely convinced that I would be joining them for good; as I was genuinely and fully engaged in all practices, knowledge and activities during my experimentation.
What do you think that was missing? Do you even know what it was you were looking for?
Master Choa Kok Sui of Pranic Healing developed a practical system that leads to greater soul and self-realisation. His genius is that through decades of research, he synthesised all religions and various spiritual disciplines to accelerate spiritual growth and healing. If I had discovered it sooner, it may have saved me years of seeking! Led by my incredible teacher Les Flitcroft in the UK, this has been life-changing and I am deeply grateful for these teachers. In my years of seeking, I also discovered that no amount of spiritual knowledge I devoured mattered much; only what I am and what I have realised counts. We don’t see things as they are; we see them as we are. Nobody can claim to be a Christian or Hindu just by reciting prayers every day, unless he is able to be like Christ. Until then, what Krishna, Buddha or Mohammed did is of no value to us, unless we do it for ourselves, too.
My discovery was to find my own light, just as they found theirs. You have to become the Bhagavad Gita instead of just reading it. In my spiritual journey, I have discovered huge lessons from my own sufferings and failures, as well as from teachers, clients, friends and fellow classmates. We jeopardise our abilities when we cannot hold onto the light that the universe has given us – when we allow that energy to be drained by outbursts of anger, pride, jealousy, criticism, intolerance and irritation. The universe wants to give us more light and energy, but our cosmic bank cannot lend us more energy if there is no space due to these clogged emotions.
Through my seeking, I found that the secret lies in healing the heart. The heart is the most important energy centre of the body. Isn’t it amazing how oxygenated blood from our lungs is pumped by the heart to our entire body? Similarly, the energy we receive from Spirit passes through our heart centre before it moves on to nourish the other chakras and systems of our body. As energy passes through our heart, it takes on its imprint – the unique vibration and quality of our heart. That imprint, for better or worse, affects everything we say or do.
The Upanishads describe the heart as the doorway to cosmic dimensions; “space within the heart is as great as the vast universe”.
I have healed myself through my heart and empower women to do the same. I guess, in answer to your question, yes, I did discover what I was looking for: how to tap into my own inner teacher, the spark of divinity that we all possess, then aligning the heart and the soul for an extraordinary life.
“As a wo/man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”~ Proverbs 23:7
You mentioned that you were suffering from physical health issues. Can you describe that in more detail and how did you manage to resolve that?
When I was 18 years old, I began to get abdominal pains, and the doctors continually dismissed it as period pains. They were giving me pain killers, but as time went on, the pain became progressively worse, until eventually, it was crippling.
They finally diagnosed me 17 years later with severe endometriosis, fibroids and adenomyosis. A part of me felt relieved to have a name to my pain; as I had long felt like a weak and incapable woman. Anyone who has suffered from chronic endometriosis will know that it is like semi-permanent labour pains, which is the best way to describe it. A friend who had cancer and was suffering beside me at the time said that she was better off than me, with her team of supporters and at the ready medical aid. She commented that endometriosis is a silent killer. It is not understood, you become increasingly isolated, you get close to no support, there is no medicine for it and sick leave is tricky as diagnosis takes on average 7 years. It definitely hit home. I recall before diagnosis, a female manager telling me to get on with my period like other women. The reality was I was unable to withstand a period like normal women, was sacked from a couple of jobs due to sick days, never knew when the pain and vomiting would start and I was branded as the difficult one around my time of the month. It is no wonder why my relationship with my womb took years to heal!
After final diagnoses, I was told that I needed to be operated on and that the conditions would not improve without extensive surgery.
Coming from nine generations of Ayurvedic doctors, my intuition felt like there was another way. I had inherited my grandfather’s old books when he passed. He was a superb astrologer and Ayurvedic practitioner.
Back then, every Ayurvedic doctor learned astrology in unison, to enhance consciousness, identify weak emotions and weak organs – as a tool for preventative medicine – an ingenious system when used in its truest form! His esoteric books and hand-written notes are my most prized possessions. I knew from reading these, just how much power we all possess within ourselves, and how my grandfather had healed others of many ailments and himself of a stroke.
Even my house was leaking, I had four unusual leaks where plumbers could only fix one. And I was told later that this was a house energetic issue reflecting my own emotions. I decided to embark on a deep healing journey, to heal my mind, body, heart, ancestry, spirit and space: Ayurveda, Emotional Freedom Technique, Nutrition, Bioresonance, Natural Medicine, Esoteric Teachings, Reiki, Pranic Healing, Feng Shui, Vedic Astrology, Chinese Astrology and I Ching. Whatever I learned was applied to myself. I became increasingly in awe of how healing my childhood subconscious, karmic healing, forgiveness, ancestral healing, emotional healing, home, nutrition, stress and lifestyle healing could fast forward my life and heal me in positive ways that I could not dream of.
In December 2019 I was given the all-clear of fibroids, endometriosis and adenomyosis from the doctor. I had had no surgery and no drugs. This was healing from the root. If I’m honest, the greatest healing I felt was at the heart and soul level, and when these are aligned everything else stands to attention, as Rumi insinuated:
There is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled.
There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled.
You feel it, don’t you?~ Rumi
As I began to heal inside, my body healed; and what’s more my outer world transformed. My home leaks stopped one by one. My outer world was in fact a pure reflection of my inner world. The fact that my income tripled was in fact a bi-product of the inner work also.
Obviously, this is what inspired you to change direction in your career, and start to use your experience and deep knowledge for helping others?
Yes, I could never go back to my corporate job now, though it taught me valuable lessons too. I now run my business “Oh She’s Rich”, where I apply all that I have learned to empower women to manifest richness in their mind, body, heart, space and soul. It is a bit of a play on words, as before I worked on myself and I found I possessed guilt around having money, spending money, and “I am not-enoughness” syndrome – as well as elements of poverty-consciousness.
I now fully feel that it is our birthright to have it all but also put our lives to good use. I use a combination of Nutrition and Ayurveda (for healing women’s bodies), Feng Shui (for healing women’s space and money blocks), Pranic Healing and Ayurveda (for healing women’s soul/ consciousness) and Matrix Re-imprinting (for healing women’s hearts and shadows).

Sometimes we’re all so busy trying to fix ourselves, that we don’t see what’s so obvious right in front of us. We just need to walk more, breathe more, exercise more. It doesn’t need to be so hard.
