What Is Pranic Healing?
Pranic Healing is an advanced form of energy healing. It uses the subtle, vital life force that is present in every cell of the human body to heal. This vital energy can be used to create balance, harmony and unity with nature and with oneself.
Pranic Healing is an energy healing technique that uses prana or life force. The word “pra” means vital energy in Kashmiri, and the word “naa” refers to the human body. Pranic Healing was developed by Mr. Choa Kok Sui during the 1960s, a time when he was frustrated with Western medicine’s inability to cure his arthritis of more than 10 years’ duration.
How Does It Work?
Pranic healing is also known as prana therapy, and it differs from other forms of energy medicine in its approach to illness. Many other energy therapies focus on strengthening or balancing the energy flow, whereas pranic healing concentrates on removing the blockage to this flow.
This is done by sending the energy to the area of blockage and then dispersing it throughout the body. The healer can also use his or her own energy to break up a blockage, as well as sending prana from outside the body.
Pranic healing can help overcome many conditions such as anxiety, depression, over-weight and diabetes by creating a connection between the physical and emotional body. This allows the energy to flow freely throughout the body, which results in increased mental clarity and a feeling of well-being. Techniques used are:
- Hands-on healing
- Healing with energy from the heart centre
- Clearing the chakras and meridians
- Balancing of the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies
Pranic Healing Vs Reiki
Pranic and reiki healing are similar forms of energy healing, as is yoga, meditation and other forms of complimentary therapies. But, they all connect with universal energy to heal the body.
Reiki is a Japanese verson of Pranic and derived from the Japanese words Rei (God) and Ki (energy). It is a relaxing treatment during which the practitioner places his or her hands on or near the body. The practitioner channels healing energy into the patient at specific points, and this energy helps to restore balance and harmony.
Pranic healing is a form of energy healing that uses breath to heal. It is based on the ancient Indian science of prana, which is a Sanskrit word meaning “life force.” Prana is the vital energy that sustains all living things. It flows through the body in pathways called nadis, which are like meridians or channels. The chakras are the energy centers of the body. Pranic healing uses these nadis and chakras to restore balance and harmony in the body.
Pranic healing was developed by Grand Master Choa Kok Sui, a scientist, author over a 20-year period. Pranic healing was developed by him using experimentation and evidence-based research. Another difference between Reiki and Pranic healing is that Reiki works on the physical level while Pranic healing works on the mental and emotional levels.
What Conditions Does Pranic Healing Treat?
Pranic healing treats health conditions such as anxiety, depression, chronic pain, insomnia, migraine headaches, and many other mental and physical conditions. It is a powerful healing modality that can be used for prevention and wellness.
The flow of energy in Pranic healing can be disrupted by negative emotions such as anger, fear, or worry causing blockages in the energy pathways. These emotions are a part of life and can be experienced by anyone at any time.
To release the blockages, Pranic healing uses a combination of gentle breathing, massage, pressure points, and gentle tapping to remove the blockages. Intuition is used to determine the location of the blockages.
To perform a Pranic healing session, you need to be in a state of deep relaxation. You should be able to breathe deeply and slowly without any strain. If you are not in a state of deep relaxation, you will not be able to transfer energy.
Can I Learn Pranic Healing On My Own?
Yes you can, but there is a great deal to learn and much of it is intuitive and takes a lot of practice over many years. You can of course watch YouTube videos and read articles on the internet, but in my opinion, finding an experience practitioner is always the best option as part of your learning experience.
In time, you can learn from them, ask them questions and get a feel for many of the techniques they practice. You will need to learn about breathe and the chakras and meridians running through your body. Also get to know the fundamentals of meditation and how to ground yourself on a daily basis as without these, you will not get to the core of pranic healing.
The prana is circulated through the body by breathing, which can be done through both the nostrils and the mouth. The nostrils are considered to be superior, as they purify the prana by filtering out impurities from it.
When breathing through the mouth, one should always keep it closed except when exhaling because the air that is inhaled from the mouth contains impurities.
When breathing through the nostrils, one should not breathe too deeply or too shallowly. The breath should be moderate and steady. If it is done properly, then the prana will flow smoothly through the body.
When breathing, one should be aware of the prana entering and leaving the body. This is called “mindfulness of breathing.” The purpose of this practice is to keep the mind from wandering away from the object of meditation.
The practice of mindfulness of breathing is not just a simple exercise in counting breaths. It is an effective way to develop concentration and to calm the mind.
Once grounded, you will feel calm, relaxed and focussed enough on your mind and body to complete the following steps:
Step 1: Sit in a comfortable position with your spine straight and relaxed. You can sit on the floor or on a chair.
Step 2: Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths.
Step 3: Visualise the flame of a candle. Imagine that you are holding the candle in your hand. Now visualize that you are taking the flame of the candle and transferring it to your heart chakra. Feel the flame of the candle in your heart chakra.
Step 4: Now visualise that you are taking the flame of the candle and transferring it to your throat chakra. Feel the flame of the candle in your throat chakra.
Step 5: Now visualise that you are taking the flame of the candle and transferring it to your third eye chakra. Feel the flame of the candle in your third eye chakra.
Step 6: Now visualise that you are taking the flame of the candle and transferring it to your crown chakra. Feel the flame of the candle in your crown chakra.
Step 7: Now visualise that you are taking the flame of the candle and transferring it to your aura. Feel the flame of the candle in your aura.
