The Ancient Art and Science of Pranic Healing

Aug 04, 2012 04:22PM

Pranic healing is a “no-touch, no-drug” therapy that deals with the invisible energy body, or aura, to heal the visible physical body. The term “pranic” stems from the Sanskrit word “prana,” which means “life force.” In simple terms, “pranic” means energy, that which gives life. Master Choa Kok Sui, the founder of modern pranic healing, made the ancient art into a healing technology. Pranic healing can now be learned by everyone as a tool to improve their lives.

It complements all forms of modern medicine and also offers solutions to our daily problems. In our fast-paced and ever-evolving lifestyle, we have often felt the need to grow our physical, mental and emotional abilities to keep up. Humanity suffers from numerous problems and challenges, which Sui has categorized into four spheres:


Health.   Why do we have various health problems, some of which do not seem to have any solutions? According to Sui, every health problem occurs first in the energy body or aura before it gets in to the physical body. Diseased or dirty energy comes to the aura first before it manifests as pain or disease in the physical body. Small ailments such as colds, coughs or minor cuts and bruises heal by themselves. It happens because the body has an innate ability to heal itself. For addressing other diseases such as arthritis, asthma, diabetes, migraines or high blood pressure, pranic healers heal the energy body or the aura to get relief and a cure.


Relationships.   How is it that we have difficulty in maintaining loving relationships with our families, relatives, colleagues and friends? Relationships are usually affected by stress. Everybody knows that we have stress but what we do not know is that stress is an energy that affects the aura. Stress is an example of an emotion that we do not see but we feel it. There are numerous stress reduction therapies such as breathing exercises, yoga and running, but we need to understand that when stress happens, the aura gets dirty. Pranic healing offers instant techniques that can remove this stress energy from the aura.


Wealth.   Everyone wants to be prosperous and successful in their business and careers. Why do some people achieve this and others struggle? Financially, most people are struggling and want to know concrete solutions. When the aura gets dirty, it reduces the ability to make correct decisions and be confident. A clean, clear aura helps us to be confident and make proper decisions. The aura affects the condition of the mind and the ability to make money in challenging environments and be a winner in most conditions.


Happiness.   Every human being has a strong desire to contribute and serve the society but they do not know how to do it. We constantly look for peace and happiness or meaning in life. Do we have a solution for this spiritual emptiness? Spiritually, most of us believe in some Supreme Power, whom we may call God. If we have a full grasp of our energy body, we will understand that there is a presence of God within each one of us. Spiritually, when we help and transform the lives of others, it gives us great satisfaction. We have heard of evolution of the soul and also whether we have a pre-determined destiny or a free will to make our own destiny.
