Sonia Mackwani

Founder - Channel

Multiple award-winner Sonia Mackwani is a Psychic Healer and an Intuitive Channel. At the age of 4, she had her first out-of-body experience. Since then, multiple metaphysical experiences made her understand that there is more to life than just what exists in the physical reality. There is a world which although invisible is very present. And one can connect with this invisible Source through one's feelings, intuitions, inner voice and gifts. Sonia knew from the very early stages that this is her last life and thus, her attempt is to lead an 'akarmic' way of living. She felt there is a purpose to life and she is here to become the energy of love. This energy of love, she experiences is through 'Self-work' 'Seva' (service) and 'Sadhana' (practice) which also was a catalyst to starting her non-profit foundation Touching Lives at the age of 20.
