Inspirational Woman: Kavita Kapoor | Clinical Hypnotherapist

KavitaTell us about yourself, your background and what you do currently?

I hail from Delhi and currently I shuttle between there and Ahmedabad. I am a Tarot Counselor, Reiki Master, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Aura Photography Analyst, Redikall chakra Healer and Access consciousness (bars and body process) Facilitator, and very into my Meditation.

But the journey was not as easy as it sounds. Having graduated in journalism from DU and then my post graduation in MASSCOM from Sophia Polytechnic,  I was confused about my career. I wanted to become an actor but had no guidance to approach the field, so backed out. I chose to walk a difficult path instead. After my PG, I was asked by my conservative family to return to Delhi. Mumbai was considered expensive and unsafe for a young and naive girl who had no clue what the world was all about. So my elder brother got me a job in Ahmedabad with Holiday Inn before I entered the media space. I was determined to go to Mumbai and give my dreams a shot. I got through a lot of reality shows but with no acting school background but just couldn’t make it to the final level. I gave up on the idea as I was not ready to compromise for roles as my conditioning and intellect would not permit me to do that.

I managed to get a job with STAR India in the ad sales team, thinking I would find my way out within the company, which never happened. When we give up on our dreams, we stop living. At the age of 25, I was lost and sad. I encountered Buddhism and found some hope. I invited marriage with a guy that failed miserably. I could never love myself, so the guy too never loved me. To add to my challenges, I entered motherhood, when I myself required nurturing and care. I quit my job to take care of my kid, to realise that my husband wanted to quit the marriage as his infidelity was at it’s peak. I had two options, either to stay put in the marriage and suffer each day or to walk out of the marriage and breathe freely. Sure enough, I followed the latter option. The thought of being a single mother without any source of earning gave me cold feet.

I started my own entrepreneurial HR firm which I ran single handedly. Amidst the restlessness, anxiety and emotional frenzy I encountered my teacher who taught me Tarot and Reiki for inner peace and strength. I started sensing energies and was excited to learn more and unveil the mysteries of the universe and the Occult. For him and myself I had to change the drama trauma of my life. I love acting, but when it happens in actual life, it can be painful! There was no looking back thereafter. My inner calling took me over and now I am a healer and I love to help people overcome their problems and be confident of the future. It has been an eight year old journey of self discovery and resurrection.

The fact that I won the title of Chitralekha Mrs Gujarat 2016, is an acknowledgement of the world around that I have come a long way! From 70 kgs to what I am today, from shedding the weight not only from my physical body but also mental and emotional weight that I was holding on to, the journey has been tormenting as well as exciting. Today people appreciate my outer beauty and unbeatable confidence, but no one knows how this was sculpted like the idol in the temple or samudra manthan.

Tell us about anything you wish to promote?

I wish to promote good health, good thoughts and I want to make the youth realise that all of us have tremendous power within us which needs to be channeled in the right way. Many a time, all of us grossly underestimate the power which we have. Making people realise their potential and helping them overcome their problems. I would love to start a center for alternative healing and self belief.

What has been your biggest challenge in achieving your success?

My biggest challenge has been to overcome my emotional setbacks. More often than not, I wanted to quit my struggle, but the one thing that kept me going was my son.

If you weren’t doing what you do now, what would you be doing?

I would be hosting talk shows, creating awareness programmes and endorsing brands. I love acting so I would have been a successful actor for sure. And I would be making people laugh. Our planet requires laughter but all we give our mother earth is sadness, madness and all the heavy emotions. It is time we clear toxins from our heart. The planet would automatically change and ultimately become more alive!

What has been your greatest achievement personally?

My biggest achievement would have to be when I was crowned as Mrs Gujarat. It really boosted my confidence and winning the crown taught me that I can do anything, anytime, and the power to achieve anything is within. The biggest lesson was to enjoy the journey and not bother about the result.
