I am always amazed to hear the stories behind the stories. And this interview will not disappoint.
On the outside, Siddiqi Ray has become an internationally acclaimed photographer, inspirational speaker, and coach whose work merges intuition, creative vision and pragmatic analysis to help people come into their own power, connect authentically and build trust through visibility. Siddiqi has worked for over thirty years with entrepreneurs, Forbes 100 listed corporations and billionaires, world business and spiritual leaders including some notable names: The Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela, several members of the Kennedy Family, and an underwater series of the Navy SEALS.
But that is not always who she was. Her story is even more interesting. Raised in a family that believed in the power and guidance of a sixth sense intuition, when she showed her ability and spoke what she saw, she was severely punished.
No one listened to her and it caused her to enter a deep depression and was put into an institution to try to help her. But she didn’t need help, she was not crazy. Yes she heard voices, but these voices were voices of guidance and truth.
Siddiqi uses this ability now to communicate with the highest nature of the person she photographs and the photographed person walks away with a picture that shows a glimpse of who they really are.
Her work allows us to see ourselves and have a record that we can bring into view whenever we doubt who we really are.
