An Interview with Sri Rani Ji
Leader of The Oneness Movement, North America,
and One of America’s Greatest Residing Saints and Healers

By Stephen McCrory

The founders of the Oneness University, Sri Bhagavan and Sri Amma, have often said, “The solution to humanity’s suffering can only be found through each individual being awakened to a state of Oneness” — a level of consciousness wherein we realize our interconnectedness with all life. Only then will peace and joy spread around the world to people of all nationalities, races and religions.

It is the mission of the Oneness Movement, in cooperation with the Oneness University, to bring this awakened state to humanity. This is being done via a practice called the Oneness Blessing, wherein the Divine reaches out to mankind dissolving the illusion of separateness. Each day this Divine energy is being transferred to individuals around the world, and thousands of people are awakening to the grace of Oneness.

Spiritual leader of the Oneness Movement in North America and Canada, Sri Rani Ji is one of the most prolific spiritual leaders living today. It is her mission to help bring the gift of love and Peace to the people of the United States and Canada. She has dedicated her life to healing, uplifting and transforming the lives of others.

Her warmth and compassion have touched and transformed the lives of many. Humor and loving kindness make Sri Rani Ji a teacher capable of transforming and healing students, while feeling they have found the precious gift of divine love and connectedness.

Sri Rani Ji has traveled, given lectures and conducted workshops throughout the world to millions of people. Many of her workshops have been hosted at major universities, conventions, Unity churches, and conferences. In addition she has worked with other spiritual leaders including Tony Robbins, Ron Roth, Steve Ross, Gay Hendricks (Spiritual Cinema Circle) and Arjuna Ardagh.

Sri Rani Ji has shared her work with celebrities including Lindsay Wagner, Rick Allen (Def Leppard), Catherine Oxenburg and Muriel Hemmingway. She welcomes spiritual seekers of all faiths; those who simply wish to enhance their existing beliefs as well as those who are ready for something new.

She has appeared on TV and national radio shows. Mentions of The Oneness Movement have also appeared in People Magazine and Life & Style Magazine.

Steve: Tell us about the vision and the mission of The Oneness Movement?

Sri Rani Ji: The vision of the Oneness Movement is to end human suffering, which is the same vision of the Oneness University Founders, Sri Amma and Sri Bhagavan.
Man is suffering extensively. The Oneness Blessing is a means to end man’s suffering. The reason for the suffering is caused by the sense of separation. The Oneness Blessing is a transfer of intelligent energy that begins to transform and awaken each person according to their individual needs.  

The Blessing, also known as Deeksha (a sanskrit word which means initiation or benediction), can have powerful healing effects. It de-clutches the mind, creating a sense of peace and relaxation that eventually leads to forgiveness, gratitude, love and joy. The Movement’s mission is to bring the Blessing to as many people as possible, by means of talks, phone conferences and intense workshops.

Steve: When did you first meet Sri Bhagavan and Sri Amma?

Sri Rani Ji: I met them in 1995, after years of searching. I led a beautiful life, but four years prior to meeting them I went into deep suffering, and there my journey to find a solution to my problems began. I met one of the teachers from the Oneness University who helped me to see that the solutions lie within and I did not need to change others, or struggle to make things happen. When I saw that clearly, I realized that life is simple yet we make it so complex. Since this helped me tremendously, I wanted to help others who were suffering due to the same ignorance. Since then I have been working to help others.

Steve: How is the Oneness Movement different from other spiritual teachings, and even religions?

Sri Rani Ji: The Oneness Movement starts your journey from where you are, not from where you want to be. Some organizations attempt to bring man to the state of happiness and joy, but if we do not work with what is within us (hurt, jealousy, trauma) we will get nowhere. The other difference is that the Oneness Blessing (OB) is a neurobiological process, not a psychological process. For a transformation to happen in an individual, one needs to transform the brain. That is done only by the OB. That is when the individual perceptions change towards life, and life becomes more meaningful. This OB is unique to this movement.

Steve: You often share about the connection between what we think and what emotions our thinking attracts. How are thoughts and emotions related to our health?

Sri Rani Ji: Most illnesses are due to all the hurt, pain and trauma within us. When we do not deal with these emotions and experience them to the fullest, they are retained in our cell structure, and when these emotions pile up, they are psychosomatic in nature, and that will cause things like headache, cancer, etc.

As we experience what is within us, or stay with the emotion or feeling at the moment the incident is happening, there will be no charge left, and hence it will not affect your health. There is the law of karma that states what you sow, so shall you reap many times over. What you hate you become. What you love you become. What you fear you become.

Steve: It is often said that the Oneness Blessing can help heal relationships and traumas. Tell me more about how this happens?

Sri Rani Ji: The reason we have conflict in our relationships is because we do not forgive or seek forgiveness. Whatever is said during an incident, the mind comes into play. It judges what is said, judges the other and self. We do not experience the emotion and hurt that occurred during that incident. We carry-over, and that carry-over is baggage which is causing suffering and conflict in the relationship.

As mentioned earlier, if there is hurt in that relationship, we must experience it fully. Once that hurt has been experienced, the relationship is set right. Since there is no more charge left, relationships are set right and the trauma is released.

Steve: As a woman and a mother, you talk about being Spiritually healthy and its correlation to physical health. Will you explain that?

Sri Rani Ji: As you heal your inner conflict, hurt, pain, discontent, or trauma, your physical health becomes better.

Steve: How has The Oneness Blessing (Deeksha) embellished your life?

Sri Rani Ji: I am really living, not dwelling on the past or the future. Since there is no conflict, I have a great amount of energy.

Steve: How can people learn more?

Sri Rani Ji: They can learn more about the Movement and the Oneness Blessing by attending workshops, going to events put on by OB Facilitators, and taking the course. They can also talk with Facilitators who have been to India. More information is also available on our website.
