This is the age for a huge spiritual awakening whether you want to accept it or not. We are being urged gently, or by force, to turn inwards and upwards. What if your spiritual awakening becomes a tool to help uplift the whole world?  In an attempt to awaken the atmosphere of love, kindness, happiness, and forgiveness, the Brahma Kumaris in the United States believes it will.  The more we move inward and begin to truly check our thoughts and align those thoughts to God’s pure vibration, we can call that an awakening.  The energy around the North Eastern shores of  the United States welcomes Sister Shivani, a Raja Yoga Meditation Teacher who has been studying spiritual knowledge and practicing the ancient technique of Raja Yoga Meditation, as taught by the Brahma Kumaris for the past 20 years.

BK Shivani completed her Electronics Engineering graduate degree as a Gold Medalist from Pune University in 1994 and also served for two years as a lecturer in Bhartiya Vidyapeeth College of Engineering, Pune.

Since 2007, she has been on-screen in India, USA, UK, Asia Pacific, Africa and Australia, through the presentation of practical spiritual understanding on the TV program ‘Awakening with Brahma Kumaris’. The program has helped people overcome mental stress, depression, addictions, low self-esteem and unhappy relationships, as they take personal responsibility for their lives.

The Awakening Tour began on June 20th in Great Neck, New York with a room filled with an audience captivated by her simple message, ” change your thoughts, change the situation.” Sister Mohini, President of the Brahma Kumaris in the Americas, shared beautifully that for us to remain awakened, ” think in peace.”  So simple and so easy. 

In times of great confusion and despair we can become numb, maybe even disillusioned to the point you no longer care what happens to anyone or even for your self. 

But, when we choose to awaken our lives, we declare our lives are worthy of love, power, and optimism. We begin to take charge of our lives and stop blaming others for the way our lives have turned out.  This is our time to get inspired and awaken to love, forgiveness, happiness and more. 

We’re living in a time when we can consciously participate in our own spiritual awakening. And when we decide to do this, we uplift those around us and we uplift our humanity.  Join the Awakening Movement, and get inspired to love fiercely and speak purely.
