From films and mass communication to energy healing, Sangeeta Bhalla shares her story with MysticMag. She talks about how her company, 3000 BC Therapeutics, came about, what Prana Energy is, how she teaches energy healing to others, and more. If you’re interested in energy healing, this one should make its way to the top of your to-read list.
Please be kind enough to introduce yourself to our readers and tell us a bit about your professional journey before founding 3000 BC Therapeutics.
In the 60s and 70s, I grew up in New Delhi, India’s capital, completing my schooling and university education. While interested in creative pursuits, limited options in the country hindered my aspirations. I studied history at Delhi University’s prestigious St. Stephen’s College for my bachelor’s degree. Then I pursued a career in films and mass communication. After studying in the US, I returned to India and joined the vibrant advertising industry in Mumbai. Later, I established my independent film production company, Purple Arc Films, alongside my husband. This venture coincided with marriage and motherhood, adding new dimensions to my life.
In 2003, my husband received a job offer in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and we relocated there. During our comfortable stay in Malaysia, I delved into my passion for painting, particularly watercolors. However, a series of tragic events occurred when both our fathers passed away within a short span, followed by the loss of my mother and sister. The unprocessed grief took a toll on my health, and I was diagnosed with colon cancer while living in New York. Multiple surgeries left me physically and emotionally devastated. During this time, I reconnected with a healer in Boston, who introduced me to energy healing and essential oils.
Returning to India, specifically Hyderabad, I continued exploring energy healing and embarked on learning Energy healing, a journey that required significant commitment. My husband and I completed the level one course in pranic healing, setting the stage for a new chapter in our lives. Since energy healing is a gateway to spiritual advancement we have been soaking up the ancient knowledge on offer in a very laddered approach, much like going to school & University again!
What’s the story behind 3000 BC Therapeutics?
I vividly recall my Level 1 course experience, where I faced difficulty navigating the stairs to the first floor. This was back in 2017, but it didn’t deter my enthusiasm for learning. I immersed myself in various healing techniques, therapies, and ancillary courses, delving into crystals, mantras, esoteric knowledge, and advanced spiritual and healing practices.
When the COVID-19 lockdowns began, we found ourselves amidst a situation where people were falling seriously ill, some even ending up in the ICU. It was during this time that we started offering healing to others. Concurrently, I had recently started sharing therapeutic essential oil blends with friends and family. As physical interactions became limited, I initiated free online meditation sessions, which proved immensely beneficial to many. This organic evolution led to the birth of 3000 BC Therapeutics.
We embarked on building the company during the lockdowns, focusing on establishing our brand, designing packaging, and creating a website. With my daughter, who was with us from her university in the US, becoming a co-founder, we infused the venture with youthful and dynamic energy, particularly in terms of social media and digital presence. My husband, a skilled marketer and business strategist, also joined as a co-founder, contributing his expertise to the company’s growth.
Now, after three years, we are determined to expand beyond the local market here in Hyderabad and tap into larger markets. Our goal is to reach a wider audience, exploring opportunities in e-commerce and other online platforms.
Can you tell me what Prana Energy is and how you use it?
In the Hindu tradition, the term used for the vital energy or life force that sustains the body is Prana. Similarly, in China, this force is referred to as Chi, while in Japan it is known as Ki (e.g., Reiki), combining “Rei” (universal) and “ki” (therapeutic energy).
Prana is present everywhere, sourced primarily from the Sun, Air, Ground, and Plants. Our physical body has an unseen counterpart known as the etheric body, energy body, or commonly, the Aura. The Aura contains numerous meridians and Chakras, which can be understood as the organs of the invisible body. By healing the energy body, we can promote healing in the physical body.
While it is true that the body has its natural healing abilities, there are times when it requires additional support. As healers, our focus is on the energy body, cleansing the chakras of any blockages or diseased energy and replenishing them with fresh energy. Energy healing is effective both in-person and in remote/distance mode, following a systematic, protocol-driven approach. We consider Energy Healing a complementary modality, that can be used with modern medicines and other systems.
Can you walk us through a typical energy healing process with a client?
I find it beneficial to begin with a personal consultation with the client, considering a diagnosis from an allopathic doctor as a valuable starting point. Based on the specific issue at hand, a suitable healing protocol is selected. Presently, most healing sessions are conducted remotely at a scheduled time.
During the healing session, the client can choose to sit or lie down in the comfort of their own home. They can create a soothing environment by playing healing sounds and simply remain open to receiving the transmitted energies. The duration and frequency of the treatment vary depending on the condition, ranging from a couple of weeks to several months.
You are also an Energy Healing Instructor. How do you teach energy healing and can anyone learn it?
Energy healing is a practice that can be learned by almost anyone. There are various levels of teaching available, all available online & offline. At the introductory level, we offer a 16-hour course that can be completed over 2 or 4 days. This course combines theory with practical application, providing a solid foundation. Following the introductory level, there is an advanced healing course, also consisting of 16 hours. Additionally, the third module focuses on psychotherapy, addressing mental and psychological disorders. These three modules form the essential foundation for healers before they can begin working on others.
Energy healing offers a ladder-like progression to higher levels of spirituality, with additional courses available. Returning to the level one course, students are taught fundamental principles of energy healing, along with practice sessions, meditation techniques, and special breathing exercises. It provides a comprehensive and holistic approach for individuals to learn how to heal themselves and those around them. The ultimate goal is to achieve a harmonious balance among our physical, mental, emotional, and energetic bodies, and this system offers a systematic approach to achieving that balance.
Is there anything about 3000 BC Therapeutics and your work that you’d like to share that we haven’t covered?
3000 BC Therapeutics offers three tools to support your well-being. Firstly, we provide over-the-counter topical blends of essential oils. These blends are specifically formulated to address common day-to-day issues such as stress, anxiety, insomnia, headaches, body aches, low immunity, and hair fall.
