When Dr Rangana Rupavi Choudhuri was diagnosed with abnormal cells and a chronic hormonal condition, she had no idea that this would change her life for the better. It was the beginning of a lifelong journey, giving up her job in the corporate business world and starting from scratch to find renewed happiness and inner peace.
by Dr Rangana Rupavi Choudhuri
I was devastated and shocked in 2001 when I received the news! Diagnosed with abnormal cells and a chronic hormonal condition which required immediate surgery and ongoing medication. Although I had studied extensively at Oxford University in the UK and gained a PhD in Cancer Research, I never expected this happen to me!
I still remember the early morning phone call from the hospital. I was driving to work in the fast lane along the stunning Florida coastline and had to pull off into a grey and desolate derelict building site.
My head was reeling as the news of the diagnosis began to sink in, yet I had a gut knowing that surgery was not for me and there was another way. I just did not know what it was. Or how I would find it.
Healing without surgery
It was a year later in December 2002, after my father had passed over, that I discovered The Journey, a book written by Brandon Bays.
As I read, I knew what was written in the book would be responsible for me healing my body, mind and spirit. I started to make the connections between unresolved past events and limiting thoughts that may have led to the abnormal cells and shut down of my reproductive system. As I learned more and more about emotional healing, I began to realize, that according to science, there were three components to infinite health: (see references: Deepak Chopra, Dr Robert Scaer, Bruce Lipton, Candace Pert.)
- Direct access to negative past memories that have become stored inside our cells (cell memories), limiting beliefs and negative consciousness in our energetic fields.
- The ability to release stored negative emotions and to empty out past hurt, pain and upset, and opening up to self forgiveness.
- Accessing the higher self, infinite intelligence or Source energy to ignite healing within.
Through my own personal experience, and having worked with thousands of people worldwide, I now realise that all healing takes place when we are open in the presence of Source or the higher self. I also realised Source is there all the time and in order to access it I needed to release my negative emotions, empty out my past hurts, receive more effective and empowering resources, and mostly importantly love, accept and forgive myself.
I used the Journey described in Brandon’s book to heal the abnormal cells and they literally flowed out of my body and my reproductive system spontaneously reset itself and was functioning completely normally. The doctors and nurses were astounded and here I was living proof that healing is possible using alternative methods instead of drugs or surgery.
At the same time as being diagnosed with abnormal cells, I was also suffering from chronic daily migraines and debilitating pain in my shoulders and back. I was on shock therapy and a cocktail of medications to narcotise the pain. This was when I discovered Emotional Freedom techniques (EFT) and used them to clear the migraines and pain completely.
During the following 7 years, I was still working full time in corporate business, running various different marketing teams and business lines globally. But I proceeded to spend every holiday learning new and different alternative healing modalities and coaching systems with the best of the best from around the world, including Brandon Bays, Tony Robbins, Byron Katie, John Seymour, Richard Bandler, Wilf Proudfoot, Gary Craig, Debbie Ford, Deepak Chopra, David Shepherd, Ranjana Appoo, Aparna Choudhuri, Tad James and Carol Look.
In addition to the Journey and EFT, Tony Robbins and his Mastery and Leadership programmes, also significant was my introduction to neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), which connected me with my true purpose and passion in life
Learning to walk again and finding inner peace
While I knew I wanted something more from life, I continued to work in the corporate world, holding onto the security and comfort of employment and my executive lifestyle. In December 2008 I had a serious accident resulting in a broken coccyx, sacrum and pelvis and confined me to bed for 9 months. It was a time of gestation, reflection and application of all my healing modalities.
After 9 months, I emerged pain free and able to walk again, and literally walked out of my corporate career leaving behind my sports car, business class lifestyle and attachment to material rewards. The healing Journey I had embarked on also stripped away my need for external approval, rewards and status symbols.
As I left my old lifestyle, I surrendered everything, not even knowing how I was going to pay my mortgage, my bills or even put food on the table. Initially, I was lost and like a buoy; I felt I was bobbing up and down, floating on the ocean. No clear direction. No path and yet at peace. Floating. Drifting. Innocent. Not knowing.
Inspired by my inner guidance, I started a free meditation group in London, and people started to come one by one. Organically, I would be asked to facilitate paid sessions and slowly my private practice started to grow. Because I was trained in over 200 healing modalities, I was asked to facilitate training sessions to teach others about healing the body, mind and spirit from my own direct experience.
Eventually, I was guided to found ‘Vitality Living College’ and I now travel the world delivering seminars to people from all backgrounds, races and cultures to enable personal, professional and spiritual development. I train the public and those who want to professionally qualify as practitioners and trainers in NLP, EFT, The Journey, Matrix Re-imprinting, Breakthrough Coaching, Timeline Technology and Hypnosis. My mission in life is to empower myself and others to discover unconditional love and to feel empowered to live with passion.
