"According to new observations most of us believe blindly in priests. We do what they say but we never try to think logically about why things are happening. When I got in touch with her, she explained things to me in a very logical manner. I analyzed matters and opted for a therapy session that involved going into a trance. So I find it a very scientific kind of approach," said Navneet.
Another healing technique is WICCA, a relatively new technique that involves crystals, incense, ritual candles and herbs to perform Wicca Spells.
