Aitan Ebrahimoff on the emergence of spiritual polyamory and the wealth of female healers facilitating it via the online realm, their varying spiritual prognosis readily available for YouTube viewing.
“If they think I’m cheating – I’ve ridden a bicycle blindfolded. How can I just dodge cars and all of that?” Child mystic and Youtube sensation Yogamaatha is responding to the accusation that her Third Eye, the hidden organ that allows her to see when blindfolded, is a sham. A nine-year-old girl from North Carolina, Yogamaatha claims to have awakened her Third Eye at a meditation and initiation course in Bangalore. Over the last year, she has toured the US demonstrating her abilities to doctors, government officials, and leading financiers. But her biggest audience is online. The youngest in a wave of female audio-visual healers who are breaking the Internet, Yogamaatha’s most viewed video boasts well above 2.5m hits. Spirituality has gone viral, and YouTubers are battling for the truth.
