Hello! My name is Sati. I am Guyana born but NYC raised. I came to the USA when I was very young. My parents have passed a while now and I’m an only child. I have a lovely family of my own now and I have a few very good friends who I can call “sister” and depend on as such. I was once a marketing manager for a small business here in New York but I also offered spiritual counseling and oracle readings to those who felt lost and this went from being an occasional thing to a full blown spiritual counseling practice.
I have practiced Shakti worship 15 years now. Being born hindu, I grew up praying to Ganesh Bhagwan and Lord Shiva. When my life seemed to take a wrong turn into chaos 15 years ago, a friend dragged me off to a Kali Temple. At first I was terrified. I walked into the temple terrified. When I think back to that first day, I am utterly ashamed of myself for being terrified.
You see, I grew up in Brahmin household. This means that my parents only worshipped according to the Vedas. I was taught that Kali Ma and all devtas were to be feared – especially since their photos were quite scary. I was taught that once you started praying to them, you could never take a day off because they would destroy your life. I was even taught to fear Durga Ma, though after seeing all those religious movies, I wanted to be just like her. She was my Wonder Woman.
I was taught very wrong.
But spirituality and the love for anyone, including the Divine Devi in all her forms, is not something you can be taught. It’s a path to be walked. A journey of obstacles and determination and faith and love. I’ve been told by those new to the worship that the path would have been easier if they had some guidance along the way.
That is the reason for the birth of this blog. I hope you’ll join me here. I am happy to answer what questions I can in the form of articles on this blog. If you need specific guidance, please see my reading and consultation services.
