What are the circumstances that turn an ordinary person into a Master? Rae Chandran, who is also Thriive’s Global Ambassador, shares with us his journey from being a man angry at God to becoming a Master, a teacher, channeler and energy healer.
How did your journey begin?
I was an angry man, angry at God. “Why am I so poor? If God is so lovely, why is there so much suffering?” These things did not connect with me at all. I thought there must be something bigger. That began my journey of understanding why some people have hard times and some don’t even have to move a feather. I never went to temples because I could not understand why people worshipped statues. I set out to find my own truth by travelling to a few countries but I ended up in USA. Around that time, I read a wonderful book The Power of Subconscious by James Murphy. It really hit me very hard.
One day, I met a girl in the US who was from Japan. I fell in love with her. We spent 3 days together and then she said that if I loved her, I should go to Japan with her. I went to Japan but we broke up in two months. I was hurt, betrayed and penniless. I became a homeless person and at that time I really started questioning my beliefs about God. I wanted a God who could give me some food, clothing and shelter.
I was in despair and attempted suicide twice. Even though I was struggling through dark times, I was somehow able to get help. Sometimes, it was in the form of a lady with peanuts and sometimes a taxi driver who took me to a restaurant. At that time I decided that if I ever got out of that misery, I would be like these angels and give upliftment and encouragement to people. Soon after, I started working in a publishing house and even became the director of the company. During that time, I read Conversations with God, which touched me deeply. I wanted a God who was a friend to me, whom I could communicate with, whom I could touch and laugh with. Now I teach only one thing – empowerment. You have everything inside of you. When you completely surrender to the divine, not from your personality but do a complete surrender and say – Thy will is my will – things start opening up for you.
In 2002, I read Shamanic Secrets which was really fascinating and I wanted to meet the author of the book. It took me three months to get his telephone number and when I called him, he was in Hawaii. I said, “The book was fabulous. Will you teach me?” He started teaching me for 3-4 hours a day, through the telephone. This went on for 3 years. He was one of the greatest Shamans of the world. He taught me how to feel the air and the leaves, and how to be one with God. I learnt to talk to the grasshoppers, butterflies, chameleons, turtles, and everything. After three years he said it was time to move on and I started channeling. I could channel a telephone, table, anything, because everything was a part of God.
Do you think they all have souls?
It’s not about a soul. At quantum level, they have a molecular structure which has the same consciousness that we have. Before it was made, it was a part of Mother Earth. So, we are communicating with HER.
When you talk about surrendering, does this mean accepting whatever happens around you?
No! When you are faced with difficulties, there is a reason why your soul chooses to bring them to you. Even during my own darkest hours, when I surrendered, I could hear the whisper of God. You must remember one thing – everything in life happens because of our own choosing. And who is choosing? Our soul: to bring us the perfect lesson and to heal the karmic energy imbalance. One of the greatest life lessons for most people, especially for ladies, is the ability to say NO and define boundaries. Until we learn to do that, we would be put in the same situation again and again where everybody will put us down and we would not be able to say NO.
When was your first experience with an extraterrestrial being?
When I met my shamanic teacher, he helped me open up to the understanding of life in all its forms through nature. He guided me to look within my body to feel the wisdom and see the truth. In 2003, when I was working for the publishing company, somebody tried to blackmail us. This guy was from Singapore and asked for a lot of money. In Japan, if you have a situation like this, the company gets prosecuted, not only the employee because of whom it happened. That was not a good feeling. I went home that night, kneeled down and cried to God asking, “What can I do at this time? What will happen to the company, to our livelihood?” For the first time, I felt someone’s presence around me and he said, “I will take care of the situation.” The one who gave the threats suddenly went missing. Until today, nobody knows what happened to him. I know nothing bad happened to him but he was removed from my life.
Was he in a physical form or energy form?
He appeared to be in a physical form, wearing white clothes surrounded by incredible energies.
Didn’t you get scared in the beginning?
No. Not at all. Just imagine you are meditating and you see this Master with an incredible glow of light. Wouldn’t it change your life? That loving impact would stay with you forever. At another time, I was meditating at 11 PM and 3 ten-feet tall men walked in. They were from my home planet Plantharous. They had a big red book. They asked me, “Are you ready to go?” I said, “Okay, I am ready to go. Does it involve death?” They said, “Only if you choose.” I said, “When I die, I want to have full consciousness of leaving my body.” They agreed to my request and left. Next day I became sick and my energy went down. Nobody knew what was happening to me. Everyday I was having death visions. I felt very alone that time. I had 135 guides, all had left me. Then they told me I should go to Egypt. I went there, to the Nile river. I saw a white light coming into my life.
Next day I went to see a man who had an oil shop. He made me sit down and touched different parts of my body and started to do Sufi chants. I got my energy back in 40 minutes. That day I learnt about channeling sounds. Now I can channel around 2000 sounds and I do sound healing workshops around the world. I don’t look upon them as miracles. I look at it as the natural order of things. I don’t look for proofs. Nor do I look for other people’s approval. I have communicated many times with Sai Baba, Jesus, Nichiren Daishonin, and many other high powers; that’s my reality.
Can anybody else do it?
Of course! Everybody can do it. Raise your frequency and you would be able to communicate with beings. There is nobody special because everybody’s special. Love of God draws God into you. You never have to do any rituals or ceremonies. But ask yourself, ‘’Do you love God with all your heart? All your mind? All your soul?’’
So, when we say God, what are we really referring to?
The infinite intelligence through which everything came! The law of One! I think: Why should I follow Buddhism, Hinduism or anything else? I would rather go to the Whole. We have made all Gods in the image of human beings and have given them human attributes such as jealousy and anger. We have Gods, one God running away with another God’s wife, one God killing another God, etc. These things never happened. These are all archetypal stories. Even Mahabharat and Ramayan never happened. Archetypal energies were created and through the power of belief, they came into material form.
In our culture, they say that we have to make the Gods happy by giving them certain alms. Are these beings also energy being who are demanding their own satisfaction?
One thing we have come here to learn is the power of thought. Your thoughts can create the energy and manifest it into any form you like. If 100 million people in India believe for 100 years that Roman civilisation happened in Bombay city, you will find artifacts of Romans in Bombay city. Because thoughts create energy, energy converts them into matter. Just imagine a billion people believing in one thing. This is the power of thought. Our thoughts affect our consciousness as well as the water and molecules in the body. One of the reasons we are here is to master the power of thought as they are the first form of creation.
