Equipped with infinite positive energy, Amrit Chand Schmidt who heads the Miracles Healing Centre in Dubai, taps into your inner world and heals it using various customized techniques. Post pandemic, she feels, it is pertinent that we heal ourselves and in turn, heal the world.
Do you see the world of alternative therapies becoming centrally important today? Why?
Yes, because there is a lot more awareness about this work and its life changing benefits than there ever was before. With the rise of anxiety, depression, etc. and all the awareness around mental health these days, people seem to be leaning way more towards holistic and alternative therapies and we notice the increasing curiosity towards this work. There was a time, when people would explore alternative therapists as the final resort, after everything else has been tried and tested, I am really happy to see that trend change in the current times.
Are you an empath and deal with different energies every other hour of your life? How do you protect yourself?
I don’t believe I am an empath. Being an empath is how people define themselves and every definition ultimately becomes a limitation. I believe I’m an infinite being with a body. So, we have infinite awareness of different energies, thoughts, feelings & emotions that people carry. With this awareness, as we come into contact with people, we have to be willing to be with whatever exists, without fighting or rejecting it. Be present with it. Resist nothing. In a way, it’s almost as if, it flows through you and doesn’t really become a part of who you are. You simply hold space for all that is, just as it is and not make it a part of your story. I also don’t believe in protecting myself. The idea of “protection” means that we can be attacked, and we are weak (and therefore need protection). Instead of “protecting” I look at expanding my being and awareness without judgement. Simply being present with everything that exists just as it is with no point of view or judgement about it. It is just a part of the human experience.
How did you establish Miracles and what have been the miracles that you have seen over the years?
I established Miracles in 2013 with the support of my family. I will be eternally grateful to them. It has always been an inner calling, as I used to have my own practice before. I believed that we needed to make this work more available and accessible to people because of the transformations I was seeing. We have seen many people’s life situation change over the years, thanks to our amazing team of experts and every day is an absolute joy to come into Miracles. On a personal note, however, I see miracles in everything. Every breath we take is a miracle in itself and the fact that we are alive and experience life is truly the greatest miracle of all, so now why not make it the best life we could ever live?
How do you help people break out of unhealthy situations and operate out of their highest potential?
The idea of operating from your highest potential is about first acknowledging your ‘potency”. We are all very potent in our own way. We all have something that is unique to who are and the idea is to celebrate that and not judge it and make it wrong (which is what most people tend to do). Once, we truly acknowledge this, we realize that any unhealthy situation whether it is pain, struggle or suffering of any kind exists in our life because there is something, we need to learn from it. It is serving us in some way that may not be logical. Once we get the learning and wisdom from that experience that situation for the most part changes. If it doesn’t change then your attitude and feelings towards the situation surely will. Something will change and it is this change and learning that is a natural part of our evolutionary process. We use various tools and therapeutic techniques to empower people to look beyond the situation that they feel stuck or locked in, changing perspectives and in turn making healthy and more honoring choices for themselves. We play with various possibilities and in turn reconnect to our true selves.
With so much of information available online, how do you filter out the relevant information that your client needs?
There is a lot of information online, but the information online is very generic. I truly believe, that working with people is not about applying a copy-paste formula. We are deep diving into their lives and looking at areas that may be very private and sensitive. This is handled with utmost care, confidentiality and consideration. In the initial session, I look at their unique life experiences, traumas, conditioning, thought patterns, personality type, etc. Once a thorough assessment has been made, I then create a customized program for them accordingly. There is a lot of awareness building, support and clients are provided with a deep understanding of the work, what to expect and the way forward. This experience as a whole, is extremely different from browsing online.
You have discovered the key to happiness. Is it a combination of several things? Elaborate?
Yes, it is definitely a combination of several things. It is a combinationof your lifestyle, to have a great relationship with your body, the people you surround yourself with and so much more. Commitment is very important. Taking care of yourself with that commitment can be a game changer. But the real key to happiness I believe is, having the right attitude. A healthy attitude is extremely important because life may throw different things your way but it’s your attitude towards it, how do you manage or navigate through it, that ultimately gives you the outcome that you are looking for. So, I think that, having the right attitude is the first and most important step towards the key to happiness.
You work across a series of healing techniques. Do you customize it as per the patient? How do you assess who needs what?
Yes, as I mentioned earlier, the sessions and programs are very customized as per the patient. We have different tools of assessment. A lot of it we understand through our intake at our first session and then accordingly, we give them options and create a plan. I assess who needs what, mainly by understanding the personality type, what they resonate with and what they don’t. Some people enjoy the energy work and the holistic side of it and others require a more clinical approach and some enjoy both. So, it varies based on the individual.
You also advise business and management consultancy services to small businesses within the industry. Tell us about that development?
I work with business owners who would like to open some form of a wellness business, or with people who might be struggling in their current business, mergers, etc. Due to confidentiality, we cannot disclose who they are, but we look at the business from different perspectives and resolve what is going on for them. It’s very interesting because just like how we heal and resolve personal issues and people thrive, we tend to sometimes have the same approach with business. We look at what’s going on with the business and with the entrepreneur as well. We clear their fears, insecurities, etc. so they can have a better relationship with their business and in turn enable to thrive by implementing the right systems and processes. A business is an entity in itself. It is important to speak to your business and understand what it requires and the direction it would like to go. And sometimes we need to get out of our own way. It’s a different way of doing business and engaging with your business.
Any client testimonials you can share with us without naming them?

How do you plan to expand and publicize the work you do?
There are many things in the pipeline right now but the one main focus that we’ve always had is to create as much awareness of this work as possible. As time goes by, especially now, with this pandemic, we realize that this work is needed now more than ever before. So, we just try and get involved with what we can, to create as much awareness as possible. We have a pretty strong online presence and keep getting as involved as we can in the community.
