Kalika is known by many as Eileen Taft, and affectionately, as Kika. Her life is her message. Her earliest conscious remembering and knowing is that she is here on a great mission. From the age of 9, Kalika experienced the full Love of and Devotion to the Divine in her daily life. Her path was guided by the Divine through many mystical experiences and miracles.
Kalika knew from her earliest conscious rememberings (about the age of 2-3) that she would meet her Guru at the age of 33. Being raised in the “Bible belt” of the Deep South, the term “Guru” was outside of Kalika’s physical experience. Yet she knew without a doubt that He was coming, and waited in great anticipation for His appearance. One week before Kalika turned 34, Sathya Sai Baba appeared to her in a dream. Coming towards her through a crowd of people, He stood in front of her and said, “I will see you very soon.” Three months later, Kalika found herself in India, where she lived for 6 months at Sai Baba’s ashrams. Kalika was graced with several more visits to Baba. Her preparation with her Beloved Baba on the Inner Planes brought her to Julia Mikk, founder of Breath of Love™. Instantly, Kalika recognized Breath of Love™ as the work she had been waiting to be revealed to her. After a year of study under Julia Mikk, Kalika was certified as a Breath of Love™ practitioner in May 2011, and she continued to study with Julia for another year.

Two very amazing things have transpired for Kalika over the past three years while practicing Breath of Love™:
- From the age of 14, Kalika has been navigating the constant presence of pain and fatigue of Fibromyalgia. Kalika was officially diagnosed with Fibromyalgia when she was 22. Before that time, no medical physician could offer an explanation or relief to her. Once diagnosed, every pharmaceutical that was prescribed to Kalika to manage the Fibromyalgia and provide pain relief was to no avail as she was allergic to ALL of them. This led Kalika into the more alternative rememdies: homeopathy, ayurveda, massage, acupuncture, chinese medicine, colonics, chiropractic, naturopathic, Bach flower essences, herbs and raw foods. While each of these remedies offered her some temporary relief, Kalika was frustrated by the need to rely on others for the care and management of the very disabling effects of Fibromyalgia. Finally after 26 years, Kalika is able to manage the Fibromyalgia through Breath of Love™.
- While at a Breath of Love™ workshop for Advanced Certification in Ojai, CA in March 2012, Kalika began to receive messages from our Sun, Solara, which has since become the body of work known as SOL SPEAKS: Life Wisdom from the Ancients to Humanity.

At a Breath of Love™ workshop led by my teacher, Julia Mikk, about 2 ½ years ago, she asked us to write a Breath of Love™ testimonial that we could share with each other. I just came across mine last night (11/26/2012)! As I read these words once more, the Truth they impart continues to ring true. This is the test of Truth. Everything is change. The only thing that does not change is Truth:
Before Breath of Love™, I often felt misunderstood, and I took things very personally, which was quite wounding to myself. I was also unaware of the extent to which I was very critical of myself in my mind. All of this contributed, in large part, to the debilitating physical pain (Fibromyalgia) in my body that I have suffered from since the age of 14.
Since Breath of Love™, I am tremendously less internally reactive to my external world. When I hear or see something that causes a charge within me, I allow myself to embrace it, so that I can learn what it has to teach me. I am now able to have clarity and let go very quickly.
Breath of Love™ and this new way of being with myself have been very healing for me. I have been able to reach such depths of healing in 9 months that I had not been able to achieve in at least 20 years. I have come to know myself, love myself and appreciate myself in an intimate way. No other spiritual practice that I have lived has brought me back home to myself in this way.
As a result of all of this, my body is in significantly less pain than it has ever been. I trust and know that, soon, my body will be fully at ease once more.
Breath of Love™ is the process of making Peace with yourself, inside of yourself. It is beautiful and awe-inspiring to observe your internal peace manifest itself in your external world.
An amazing opportunity for you to experience the power of Breath of Love™ is coming up the weekend of June 7th. Click the image below for more information and pricing. Registration deadline is May 31st.
