March 20, 2019

For this episode of She Rises, Giovanna welcomes Baljit Rayat. Baljit is a spiritual teacher who works in energetic and etheric levels to help others who want to become unstuck in their current realities. She explores an even deeper level by reading Akashic records to let people know what areas of life to focus on and improve. Keep your mind and heart open as Giovanna and Baljit dive into this unique topic and learn more about Akashic records, becoming a conscious co-creator, and being open to a universe full of possibilities.          

  • Baljit shares her past healing crisis and experience with a homeopathic doctor.

Memorable Quotes:

  • When you’re working with Akashic records, there’s no such thing as time and space. You can heal simultaneously because our past life runs parallel to the present.
  • If you have a block—physically, mentally, emotionally—you’re not going to be able to manifest what it is you want to create.
  • When we choose to deflect our awareness, resistance happens. That resistance is suffering and where we experience pain, and we hold onto it like a security blanket.
  • You will not heal if you avoid your emotions. Connect to your body and emotions on a deeper level and allow yourself to heal.
  • Practice listening to your intuition. Create space for alignment to your actual purpose.
