Quotes from those who received Shaktipat from Ruffina:
Davy M.C., Trinidad, Aug 2015
"I actually rubbed my eyes and tried to make my vision come back TO NORMAL TO TEST AND CHECK my experience. IT DIDN'T CHANGE! The light was still there!"
Loralee C., Utah, 9 14
"I saw the entire room turn white, almost like it was filled with smoke, then I saw Ruffina shining in gold and then the room filled with gold light. I saw Ruffina's face change shape, first to an older lady and then kept changing appearance."
Sam. B. Trinidad, 7 15
"This is when I began to cry and laugh at the same time. I
became so blissful and happy. I then began to lose my body consciousness
or rather felt like I was floating in a blissful ocean of being.
My body movements became very slow and everything became utterly
beautiful and lovable. I was looking at my hands, the sofa, any
object really and I was in love with everything I was seeing. I
remember at one point I began to pray and ask that God never leaves me
again. I wanted this never to stop. "
"Everything in the room was gold."
"I felt deep silence, expansion, beautiful joy, love, bigger than my
body - didn't want to come back :)
"The room looked brighter and turned to a golden hue. Her face changed
many times. Sometimes I saw space as though there was nothing I was
"Yes, everything got very silent. The whole room took on a golden hue. I
saw a golden aura around Ruffina. "
"I felt an overwhelming sense of love, peace and joy that I had not felt
in a long time."
"I began to see a glow of yellow around your head, small
at first. And then it grew. After about 10 minutes I began to see the
glow grow in size behind your head and to expand to other parts of the
room, your clothing. I saw the glow even when you were looking at
Experiences from forms filled after receiving Shaktipat from Ruffina
Trinidad and Tobago, Couva, Jul. 31, Aug 1 and Aug 8
Q1: Did you see anything different from what you normally see when you received Shaktipat?
Day 1: Yes, blinding white light at times. The atmosphere "wobbled" a few times and I saw lines like brush strokes over everything. Felt a lot of heat coming out of my body and felt completely numb, yet aware of my body.
Day 2: Yes, I saw the entire room turn white, almost like it was filled with smoke, then I saw Ruffina shining in gold and then the room filled with gold light. I saw Ruffina's face change shape, first to an older lady and then kept changing appearance.
Q2. How long did it take, while sitting with Ruffina, before you saw a change?
Day 1. Immediately. Day 2: about 2 minutes.
I felt like I was in deep meditation. I saw it when you were looking at others. And when you looked at me it took about 1-2 minutes.
Light, grace-filled awareness, vibrating forehead, bliss, calmness, dancing energy throughout the room, radiant gold.
The change took place immediately. Changes seen when Ruffina gave Shaktipat to others in the room: bliss, gentleness, light, energy flows, peace. It was very pleasant and profoundly joy-filled.
The room was light and she began to morph.
Awareness of my "self" as very separate to my body and "normal" self.
Fuzzy, soft, calm surroundings (plus need for graceful movement).
Light around Ruffina's face and throat chakra.
When Ruffina gave shaktipat to others: light/real golden border on chair Ruffina sat in. Morphing change and I would see a glimpse of snap of an old face. Peace in my body.
Before she came to me, when she was on Davy (first person) I was in the peripheral vision/line of he gaze and felt the calmness and glowing light all around. By the time she got to me it started back quickly. I also felt looking around at others they looked like their best selves - not exactly young but "fresh." Very pleasant, calming - kept thinking celestial heavenly light.
I felt that as she started her eyes got dark and I could barely tell exactly where (she) was looking but that it didn't matter because I still felt the calmness and saw the light.
The room darkened and the image of Ruffina got very bright and golden. Even blurry at times. I noticed my breathing got faster and heavier and I felt very happy.
A very heavy feeling and very bright light. Hazing of
Ruffina's face, periods of bliss and love, body twitching.
Room pulsated, everything blurred and vibrated rhythmically. Ruffina's face blurred and twisted into different faces and expressions. High frequency illuminated edges on every object/person in the room.
Face morphing. Light, illumination. Sense of immense connective love, that of a parent/grandparent to child. Saw the face of a child that I knew I cared deeply for.
It took a matter of seconds.
Light, vibrations --> high frequency illuminated edges on every object/person in the room.
Pleasant and exciting. Thank you.
It changed constantly - from thick light filling the room to the entire space zooming in and out, to multiple faces with vague background shapes, to all grey and white like a negative image.
The changes took place "before she even got to me, but intensified during eye contact."
Again, changes to the lighting and colors of the room. A gold glow around Ruffina. Changes in her face as long as she was still facing my general direction.
I saw the divine mother, dancing and getting rid of all negativity. I also saw an old person with saintly garbs holding a golden trishul (trident). I saw a 3-light lit above the trishul and also the hands (were) lifted.
I saw a bright light around you. At the end of the session I felt when the energy was being drawn back towards you.
(Also saw haziness in the room and changing of Ruffina's face.)
In moments I saw a white transparent fuzziness. It kept coming an going. Your face changed with the white fuzziness. You looked like an old African lady, very old white man, a very ancient creature (hard to describe), Chinese lady, beautiful Indian lady. The changes were not fixed; only alternations in my vision for 1-3 seconds.
Anytime I focused on you I saw the white fuzziness. Oh yea- you had a white and golden halo around your body, most visible on your head. Your face kept changing with the white fuzziness.
Q. Pleasant? A. Very - my mind is drenched in peace right now.
An infinite amount of people, animals, creatures, shapes and forms. Changes from start to finish. You are light, all things to all people, Atman-Brahman, Creator and Creation. I see you as many forms because behind all forms is light - which you are and I am. Thank you for showing me the infinite forms of the Self. May You be blessed from the core of the Infinite.
After looking at her (Ruffina) for a moment everything in the room seemed to be covered in a sort of gold light. It was almost immediate. Her face changed. I saw flashes of a bearded man. At one point she resembled what I know Jesus to look like. There were flashes of other faces as well but they're hard to describe.
Q. Pleasant? Yes, it was very interesting and beautiful.
I felt an overwhelming sense of love, peace and joy that I had not felt in a long time. A sense of peacefulness, joy.
Haziness and light in the room, changing of Ruffina's face.
The room became dark and hazy. Ruffina's face seemed to shift and vibrate and change. A feeling of deep peace.
Haze, a slight golden light by Ruffina's head. Small movements of light. Lots of energy moving around my head. Like I am beginning to tune into a finer layer of life. Movement at the crown.
Light in the room; changing of Ruffina's face.
Everything in the room was gold.
Light around Ruffina; haziness in the room; changing of Ruffina's face.
Pulsating darkness and color. Hazy background.
A subtle haziness that morphed and changed. I saw a subtle golden hue in the room. Ruffina's face was changing from normal to undefined. I saw it even while she was giving shaktipat to the others. I saw the haziness and golden hue. Ruffina's face would look different and morph.
Haziness, shifting vision. Her face changed a few times. Native American chief. Native American teenage girl. Indian Brahmin - bareback, dhoti, bald with hair at the back. All of that happened while she was giving other and while giving me.
I felt deep silence, expansion, beautiful joy, love, bigger than my body - didn't want to come back :)
Face of what appeared to be a man; might be Indian chief. At one point in time, I felt as though I was looking her upside down. She disappeared many times with only the bindi being visible. Persons became blurs, shapes of gold light. Ruffina's face did change to become very masculine at one point in time, always black.
The room looked brighter and turned to a golden hue. Her face changed many times. Sometimes I saw space as though there was nothing I was looking at.
Q. Did you see any changes when Ruffina was giving Shaktipat to others in the room? A. More changes in her face. The room remained golden.
Gold all over. Immense amount of golden light. Her face changed and looked like a Buddhist monk which was the clearest "physical" change so far. I only knew she looked at me because it got 10x more bright and tears began to flow.
St Louis, MO, Shaktipat Retreat, Feb. 1-3, 2015
Dr L. W.
Q2. How long did it take, while sitting
with Ruffina, before you saw a change?
Q4. Did you see any changes while Ruffina
was looking at someone else and not at you directly?
Additional notes: On all
three days L.W. reported: Light around and behind Ruffina and morphing
of face. She also noted "Everything went back to "normal" when you came
Ruffina's daughter, Annie (age 10)
My daughter, Annie, from a very young age, expressed interest in getting shaktipat from me as she saw both her father and me "in gold", in celestial perception, many times. My beloved Farrokh and I did not want her to see past lives while she was too young, thinking she might be afraid to see and feel them. But Annie was insistent, having her own extraordinary spiritual experiences from the age of four. One day, when my own shakti/spiritual energy was particularly strong and Annie was in front of me, I asked her to gaze steadily into my eyes. She sat on my bed two or three feet from me while I sat in my arm chair. She immediately described to me what she was seeing, exactly as I was experiencing it. She said she saw waves of light coming out and across my forehead. Apparently this impacted and opened her third eye for since then she has been able to perceive the light value in rooms, light emanating from holy statues and beings made of golden light. She is able to "go into gold" with me and experience very subtle vision.
Richard H., NC (8 15)
The experience is very calming and charming to the point of wanting to stay with it continually. A gold glow around the instructor which would change to a color of blue and white. Waves of love. It is a powerful technique.
