Your Evolution as a Person
While we’re aware of Kirti as an actor with a social media presence, we were quite intrigued by her emphasis on personal growth and yes, our nosy selves did dig deeper!
The actor reveals, “I’m a person who doesn’t want to spend my life being unconscious, just going through it, playing it by the so-called rules! I’m a human being, a living breathing being with a soul! I’m given a lot of power as a human and I believe in utilising and realising that power, then, finding ways to share it with the world and being an actor allows me to do just that! Actor Kirti is no different from the person Kirti; it’s all intertwined in the most beautiful way!”
What Got You Started on Your Journey to Personal Growth?
Kirti has been on the path of exploring the deeper meaning of life and expanding her consciousness for it for over a decade now. Was there a specific incident or series of incidents that led her towards this journey?
“Even as a child, I clearly remember being burdened with the question, ‘If we’re going to die one day, then, what’s the purpose of all of this?’ I was in the 3rd grade when this question haunted me for a day.” While Kirti’s dad did not have the answers she sought, he was able to put her mind to rest, at least for the time being. “I’ve always been interested in philosophy, had big ideas about life, and engaged in conversations that were actually deep!” she added.
As for a specific trigger, Kirti recalled how in 2009 she underwent a bout of depression. She didn’t know at the time that she was going through it and it wasn’t until three to four months after the bout that her sister, who’s a doctor diagnosed her condition.
“The period was low and I managed to get out of it but it put me on the path of wanting to know more about myself – what is happening with me, why is it happening with me and healing myself!”
Post her recovery, Kirti learned two levels of reiki, took to Pranic healing, reading portions of the Geeta among other books, meeting people who were also on a similar journey, and even enrolled in Art of Living.
“It’s a journey, not a destination! Things keep coming to you and the knowledge of self and world around you keeps deepening!”
How Does the Spiritualist Handle the Pandemic?
“From the first day till today, I haven’t experienced fear about the situation – I choose not to be fearful about it. I’m careful but not fearful!” She added that experiencing fear is natural but it is important to not let it overpower oneself. “Do what you need to do to face it and move past it!”
On a deeper note, Kirti spoke about the ways of the universe, and how it strives towards balance. “I think Covid was a wake-up call in a way that not many of us have experienced before. We’ve really abused everything, including ourselves! Consciousness rarely exists anymore, we’re too busy going through lives as if that’s the whole point! Nature is balancing the damage caused to us and the world around us!”
As dire as the crisis is, it is giving us the opportunity to build character, and reprogram our lives, align ourselves better with the universe.
“My way of dealing with almost everything is faith and surrender! There is a way out!”
As for Kirti, she took the pandemic and ensuing lockdown to take a step back and go within. “Lockdown gave us a lot of time for going deeper, putting things in place, and realizing what isn’t in place. This too shall pass!” she added, peacefully.
