"Happiness is the way. There’s no way to happiness." Thich Nhat Hahn

My life shifted the day I saw these written in calligraphy style on the walls of a meditation center.

My quest for happiness had brought me there, and here the answer staring back at me was there was no way to happiness. Hello, my dear brave heart! If you are even slightly curious about how to be happier from within, then welcome to the be happier podcast and I am your host Keya Murthy.

At the time of this recording, it has been seventeen years that I have served my clients as a spiritual life coach, clinical hypnotherapist, and master healer teacher. In helping many thousands find their true north, in the form of happiness, health, peace, and purpose, I myself, became a happier, healthier, more peaceful person with the sole purpose to help you heal, be healthier, and happier.

Let me share a bit about what and how I can help you and why. I have lived a rich life, wearing many hats, with multiple careers, lived in many parts of the world, traveled through more, been married, divorced, raised children into adult global citizens, all the time, working on myself.

I currently call California home and am originally from India. I was born and lived for 12 years in northeast India where tea grows, tigers roam in the forests and rhinoceroses.

Since I was fourteen I worked as a tutor helping students weak in their studies with passing their finals with flying colors in just one year.

I always get bored doing one thing, so had many jobs, while being a full-time student. I have a bachelors in physics and a master's in computer science.

At 23, I started work as a software engineer, and this career continued for sixteen years. After the 911 attacks, the global economy changed.

The software company I was working for went bust and all the employees were laid off. For six months I received my unemployment and this made me wonder. I have a master’s degree. I am an American citizen. I have twelve years of experience in this industry, yet today I am without a job. The jobs are leaving the country because people are dispensable.

I realized I did what I was expected to do. Get an education, get a job, get married, buy a house, and have children. But nothing means anything because I am not aligned with my higher purpose, nothing makes me happy.

I realized I was surrounded by people who had money and yet felt miserable. In my world of other highly qualified software engineers, and corporate employees with six-figure incomes, we were all chasing the American dream, yet feeling lost, lonely, getting diagnosed with one disease or the other, popping pills, going through surgeries, and not knowing why things were happening the way they were, although we were doing all the things we were told to do.

After four more years of struggling through job searching, raising kids and running a household, and trying my hand at many network marketing companies, I quit my American dream of working for others and decided to work for myself.

I went to India. Meditating at the top of the Himalayas, I realized I was asking the wrong questions and hence getting the wrong answers. I spent 90 days in the summer of 2004 in India at a silent retreat in my guru’s monastery. I knew I was good at being happy, healthy, courageous, and loving.

All the people I knew also wanted the same things, to be happy, healthy, feel safe, and loved. Whatever I did next would be to help others find just that: happiness, love, good health, and feeling safe.

I returned to school to learn how to help people overcome their limiting beliefs and change habits that keep them stuck.

I became a clinical hypnotherapist and Reiki Master. Astrology has been a lifesaver for me, it helps me understand those who are not pleasant. The lessons from my life of overcoming one challenge after another, and defying naysayers have helped me build an awesome career and life where I get to heal one soul at a time, from the hurts of the past, and learn to say yes to their future selves, their true selves.
