Hi there! My name is Vasundhra.
It means Earth (and wealth) in Sanskrit. I also go by Vasu or “V” in the MSS community.
I’m Indian by origin, Hindu by religion and identify as she/her. I live in Vancouver, Canada and have the privilege of being married to a very grounded, kind and wise partner.
AND…..deep down, I believe that our souls cannot be defined by any of the labels that come with being human.
So, I love studying different schools of thought that can help me find my inner peace and freedom. And I enjoy connecting with people from around the world that may not share my labels, but have the same passion for self-development.
How I got into writing and coaching
Within a few years of pursuing my “dream job” in the corporate world, I started aching for something more meaningful. At that point, practicing gratitude or working harder wasn’t helping. I knew my heart and spirit needed to do something else but I wasn’t sure what.
Writing became a natural outlet for me to express the darkness I was feeling. I started as an anonymous Instagram writer in 2017 and eventually embraced my “woo woo” side fully, once I made more sense of the different stages of our spiritual journey.
People continued to write back and express how they felt validated and educated on some of the “weird things” that happen on the spiritual path.
I kept going, writing and talking about spirituality with anyone that liked it. And eventually a friend invited me to run spiritual workshops for her new cafe.
From one of the workshops, my first client called me – she believed I could help her overcome her divorce. She saw something in me that I was yet to see. And then it just kept working out from there (with a million ups and downs, of course).
And that’s the crux of a very long and intense journey of searching for my purpose. I’ve had the honour of running My Spiritual Shenanigans full-time as a Spiritual Writer and Life Coach, since 2018. With supportive readers, clients, and my family, together we’ve shared the blog with half a million people across the globe!!!
Ultimately, my writing and coaching are expressions of how I show up in the world, but even deeper than those purposes, my focus is self-attainment.
Human Life Isn’t A Block To Enlightenment, It Is the ROAD
When I talk about Enlightenment, and tell people that I don’t want to come back here again, they think I’m taking this journey “too seriously”.
But my philosophy isn’t renouncing the world. Even though at one point I was tempted to shave my head bald and live in a monastery in Macleodganj.
I came back from that trip to discover that my way “back home” to myself was while riding through the waves of my human home life.
The following month, I said yes to marrying my partner and greatest teacher: unlocking a new level of healing and growth.
So behind the scenes, I am still a cookie monster, an ordinary Indian woman who likes to cook for her family, watch animation movies…and much more!
I believe we can be in this world, and make it better, without getting too attached to its pleasures. Yet, enjoying every bit of it as it comes.
By combining the wisdom of ancient spirituality with modern psychology and neuroscience, I believe we can become unshakeable.
In an “about me” page, it just makes sense for me to share my outlook. And as you read this, if you feel called to connect with me, I’d love to chat with you too! Here’s my calendar, let’s talk.
Love, Light & Awareness,
