Psychic medium, healer, spiritual teacher, speaker, and author Uma Alexandra Beepat has over 35 certifications, which makes her the perfect person to be the founder and owner of Lotus Wellness Center. Although Lotus Wellness Center does it all, they focus on natural wellness and health, including mainstream things like massage, reflexology, life coaching, and hypnosis, as well as lesser-known things such as reiki healing, access bars, theta healing, intuitive readings, and spiritual counseling.
The Awakened Life
Uma is mostly known as a spirit communicator. “I’ve been doing that since I was a child,” she says. Around 2014, the spirit woke her up in the middle of the night and told her that they had to talk to people who were just starting their journeys. So Uma got up and wrote from three in the morning until eleven in the morning, and had her book finished.
The book helps people who are awakening. Folks have their lives, spouses, children, jobs, and social circles, but still feel like it’s not enough. “They’re feeling like something’s missing, something’s lacking,” says Uma. The book helps them find what they are lacking, what they can expect in living an awakened life, and serves as a how-to guide. People starting on their journeys may feel alone, under pressure, depressed, sad, or anxious, but the book and Lotus Wellness Center are here to show you that you’re not alone. That’s why Lotus focuses so much on community. “We want people to know [they’re] not alone, and we’re really trying to let them know that there [are] avenues available for them,” Uma says.
The spirit has been talking to Uma since she was a child, but it wasn’t until she was 30 years old that the spirit told her to get busy. “Usually I hear voices in my head, and this time I heard it outside of me,” says Uma. The voice told her that the time for playing was done, and it was time to work. “It was almost like I was robotic. I lifted up out of the bed, got down on my knees, and I didn’t even know or have the enlightenment to say this, but I heard myself saying ‘I know nothing. Teach me everything,’” she says. Everything fell into place without her having to pay for anything or worry about anything, and she started the business out of her basement in 2009.
Go Sit in Your Wrongness and Be Wrong
In her business, she focuses on wrongness. Everyone is told how wrong they are from the minute they’re born. They’re the wrong gender, as a man living in a woman’s body or vice versa. They’re the wrong religion, wrong color, in the wrong state, or the wrong country. Everything is wrong. “As a healer and a speaker and a teacher, I am focused on the wrongness of people,” says Uma. “I celebrate the wrongness of you. I help you live your authenticity.” She wants to help people find their path that is unique to them, and then stand in it. “We focus on empowering our students, our clients, on them finding the answers within themselves,” Uma says. “We’d rather teach a man to how to fish than to give them a fish.”
The Devil Made Me Do It
Clients are the most skeptical about receiving energy healing and intuitive reading treatments. They think it’s satanic. “Energy healing is not right, only Jesus can heal, if you do that you’re messing with karma,” Uma says, rattling off some of the excuses she’s heard. Intuitive readings are definitely satanic because they involve tarot cards, it’s psychic, it’s Wiccan, it’s pagan. But Uma has been in business since 2009 and she hasn’t turned into a demon yet, so you will probably be fine.
It’s All in Her Blood
Although she looks Indian, Uma calls herself a child of the world. She was born in London, grew up in Barbados and Guinea, her father is an atheist Hindu, her mother is a practicing Muslim, and they sent her to an Anglican church as a child, where she was confirmed and baptised as a Catholic. “My mom is what we call the Dreamer. She prophecies in her dreams,” says Uma. Her maternal grandmother was a Medicine Woman, so if you went home with a cast on, she’d be in the kitchen making an herbal paste to put on your injury. On her father’s side, her aunts are very psychically gifted, and one of them is a tarot. “I come from a strong line of women,” Uma says.
What’s Uranus Have to Do with It?
What we can expect in the future is a complete revamping of the healthcare and financial systems, if Uma is hearing the spirit correctly. Uranus is moving into Taurus in May 2018, and will sit there for the next four years. The last time Uranus moved into Taurus, the Great Depression happened, people jumped out of windows to kill themselves on Wall Street, and everything crumbled. “Uranus is upset, surprises, magic,” says Uma. “Taurus is financial systems.” And just look at all this bitcoin and cryptocurrency starting to come out. In addition to a major shift in financial systems, Uma also sees healthcare shifting. “I see the big healthcare crumbling. I see all that stuff about Monsanto crumbling,” she says. “I see healers and readers and all of that, all the people in my profession, we’re now going to become part of the regular healthcare team.”
