Life Journey

Earlier I achieved critical acclaim as a lead actress in Bollywood and Europe, becoming the fastest rising star on Google India (2010). Then a strong urge to change direction arose, so I left the film industry and chose another path. Half-British, half-Indian, I bridge the gap between the East and the West. My father is a descendant of Sage Mandavya and comes from an ancient lineage of teachers who pass down timeless knowledge and meditation; my mother is English. People often ask about my name; while acting I amassed a large following under the stage name ‘Shields’, so I kept it. 


‘Sidha’ in Sanskrit means ‘perfected one’ and refers to an individual who has mastery in meditation. Sidha’s are studied by scientists due to their full brainwave coherence and ability to produce positive effects in their surroundings. As a Sidha, I have an advanced meditation program that I do twice a day; this enables me to transcend, create calm, intuit the needs of others and perceive finer levels of reality.

If you’re looking for an effortless technique that is blissful I recommend learning Transcendental Meditation (TM). To find your local TM teacher visit
