My 15 Minutes of Fame Healing on Redneck Vacation

After waiting for six months, finally I had my almost fifteen minutes of fame. My Big Redneck Vacation episode came and went last weekend with little fanfare and I still don't know what to make of the show. You can view the full episode here - Redneck Vacation episode 108.

It was a wonderful opportunity for 800,000 viewers to experience a puja to Shirdi Sai Baba the Indian Saint. Also, later in the show I was able to teach the women Baba's mantra, "Om Sai Sri Sai Jai Jai Sai." I was really happy that the producers kept both of these scenes in the show, that was what was important for me. So much else was edited out, but that was fine.

During the filming of my portion of My Big Redneck Vacation, (a CMT reality show), the cameras were on all the time, except when the director said cut, and then sent all the men downstairs. That was the "set-up", the creation of artificial conflict that reality television thrives on.

The "reality" was that everyone, men and women in the family, were very happy during the healing that I did with them. Besides giving a black rock for protection to one of the men, I also gave everyone either rudraksha bead or crystal necklaces or bracelets or amulets. In the scenes downstairs the men can be seen still wearing their amulets and beads. The TV "reality" was that only the women liked what I was doing and the men had to get their womenfolk back to their Redneck roots. Which they did some days later by pouring beer on them and throwing mud on them, which by what we see on TV, everyone enjoyed.

If I had it to do over, there is very little I would change. I was able to facilitate Shirdi Sai Baba's energy flowing out to everyone who watched the show, everyone watching received some level of healing, whether they knew it or not... So that was good... that was Divine.

"I'm a little bit psychic" - Redneck Vacation

Last year I got a call from a television production company, Pink Sneakers Productions, based out of Miami. They were going to be filming a reality series in The Hamptons in the summer and they were looking for a healer for one episode. Of course, without thinking I volunteered. They came to the house and filmed me in a kind of interview, and they said they would get back to me. I then pretty much forgot about it. Or tried to anyway. Just thinking, "if Shirdi Sai Baba wants it, then it will be."

Well, eventually they called and they wanted to use me, and was I still up for it? "Hell Yes!", as they might say on the show. The day of the filming came and the guy from Pink Sneakers called and said there was delay, and they would see me maybe in a week. I started to think, "is this going to happen or what"? The waiting was crazy. Yes, it did happen. The show is now on the air, it is MY BIG REDNECK VACATION, on CMT. Saturdays at 9:30pm and then repeated many times during the week. Its the story of a Big down-home Louisiana family that rents a house in the Hamptons, East Hampton to be exact. I am the healer / Guru called upon by the family as they get ready for a wedding.

I caught a glimpse of myself on last night's episode, a promo for next Saturday night, when I am on. It was weird, seeing myself. But I guess that is how people feel seeing themselves on TV for the first time. I am going to be healing with Baba's Energy before a National audience. They say this series is CMTs highest rated ever.

The synopsis has me a bit nervous though;

The girls get motivated to adopt the Hamptons healthy living lifestyle in an effort to shape up for the up-coming wedding. They seem to lose their minds as they attempt to drag their men to yoga, tennis, and tea parties. But when a guru stops by, the guys decide to take matters into their own hands to win their women folk back with a redneck baptism.

Tune in next week and let me know how I did.
