Oct 06, Annica rated it it was amazing Shelves: He goes on to explain in a simple, yet scientific, way how Western, allopahtic medicine and pranic healing or indeed other healing methods working on the energy body complement eachother. With the help of Eric Robins, MD, the book demystifies pranic healing using real life examples. The fact is that you don't have to believe in pranic healing for it to work but after just the first two chapters I don't know why anyone wouldn't - it just makes sense!
Hold on to your wig, because from Chapter 3 onwards the journey really begins If everybody read this book, the world would certainly be a much better place! Nov 26, Gato Negro rated it really liked it. Everytime I read something revolutionary in this book, I can hear Tommy Chong in my head saying, "Far out, man.
Exciting theories, and practical advice even for the extreme novice like myself. I enjoyed the chapter on Energetic Hygiene the most. Boy do I need cleansing in this regard! Good stuff! It works It perplexing easy for me but I am just a host to king an queen it's like flower that's blooms in the full moon.

I have no doubt that it has value, it's just that other self-healing methods appeal to me more. Sep 27, Kreeti Shakya rated it liked it. This book is an introduction to Pranic Healing and it introduces various techniques we can use to heal ourselves.
Pranic breathing, tibetan yogic exercises, mentalphysical exercises and twin hearts meditation are few of the techniques described in the book. As someone who has already taken few courses related to Pranic Healing and experimented with the meditation technique, this book served as a valuable reminder of the techniques I had once learnt and forgotten.
I also learnt some additional te This book is an introduction to Pranic Healing and it introduces various techniques we can use to heal ourselves. I also learnt some additional techniques or exercises for boosting vitality and balancing energy through this book. Jan 25, Josephine rated it it was ok. Liza's doctor recommended this book to me.
I learned from it the great importance of relaxation and breathing. I read great tips on meditation and breathing techniques that help the body heal. But about half way through the book - the topic switched to other healing techniques that I don't personally connect to But I found the first half of the book very interesting and informative.
Anyone interested in healing. A great book on energy healing with your hands. Anyone can do it with proper focus, intent and by following the simple methodology revealed in this concise work. It is far easier than one might imagine and it works! The energy of the universe is there for all of us to draw from; it is real and it is plentiful. Nov 14, Traci Nguyen rated it really liked it. We've all felt static electricity on clothes and things so I can understand the idea behind everyone having a field of energy or aura surrounding them.
Pranic healing is about keeping that energy field clean in order to allow the body to heal itself. It also talks about breathing techniques that help energize the body with prana life force.
It is a fascinating book. Jun 17, Sue rated it really liked it Shelves: But Pranic Healing's sweeping provides more focused, complete removal of energetic congestion, primarily because pranic healers can use several types of hand motions in sweeping, depending on the location and "stubbornness" of the energetic blockage.
Energizing is much more detailed in Pranic Healing than in either Reiki or Therapeutic Touch, though it is still simple to learn.
Both Reiki and Therapeutic Touch practitioners channel energy into the body of the patient, and there is some rudimentary targeting of the energy to areas where the patient has discomfort, or where the practitioner feels an energetic disturbance.
In Pranic Healing, though, for each specific health problem there is a specific sequence for cleaning and energizing particular parts of the body and particular chakras so that the prana is utilized to maximum healing effect.
While it is based upon some of the tenets that underpin both acupuncture and chi kung, Pranic Healing is easier to learn and use. As in acupuncture, Pranic Healing works with the meridians, but unlike acupuncture Pranic Healing concentrates on only the largest meridians, along which the major chakras lie. Hundreds of other, smaller meridians criss-cross the body, but by performing focused energy work on the large meridians, which feed the others, pranic healers can achieve more effective results in a much shorter period of time.
And of course, pranic healers, unlike acupuncturists, needn't study for years to learn the location and path of those smaller meridians and which organs and parts of the body they energize. There are numerous chi kung schools and thus many types of chi kung healing techniques. The biggest differences between chi kung and Pranic Healing lie in their energy-generation philosophies and the length of time needed to become proficient in the practice.
They then tap this surplus for meditation, spiritual development, fighting, and healing. Pranic Healing, by contrast, is an external-generation system. Students are taught powerful techniques that enable them to draw in energy from outside the body and then project it into areas of deficiency for healing.
Thus, pranic healers don't have to worry about their energy battery "running down. Finally, missing from nearly all other energy medicine systems are two cornerstones of Pranic Healing: Your Energetic Anatomy Pranic Healing teaches that illness and health problems result from disturbances to the flow of prana through a network of power centers, passageways, and energy fields that interpenetrate the physical body called the energetic anatomy. Your energetic anatomy, also called your energy body, or simply, your aura, is a three-dimensional cloud of prana that begins inside your physical body and emanates outward in all directions to form a rough outline around your body.
The energetic anatomy has five basic components: The chakras, the body's power centers or transformers that take in and distribute prana. The meridians, the body's energy channels that transfer prana to and from the chakras and nearby organs and parts of the body. The inner aura, an inner shell of prana that begins inside the body and extends about 5 inches out from the body in a healthy adult.
The outer aura , an outer shell of prana that also begins inside the body and extends up to several feet beyond the inner aura in a healthy adult. The outer aura holds in the body's energy. The health aura, an aggregation of 2-foot-long rays or beams that radiate from the body's pores.
In a healthy person, these health rays are straight and well defined, but in a sick person they are crooked or droopy. These auras are concentric, much like the layers of an onion, with the three auras nesting inside one another Figure Your energetic anatomy has four principal functions: Let's look at the components of the energetic anatomy in more detail. Chakras Your energetic anatomy has three types of chakras: All sizes are for a healthy adult. There are 11 major chakras, three of which -- the heart, solar plexus, and spleen -- have a front and back aspect.
Thus, with the front and back heart, front and back solar plexus, and front and back spleen, you will work with a total of 14 of these major power centers. You may find it helpful to refer to Figure a, Figure b, and Table 1-I as we discuss them. Starting at the top of the head and working down the front of the body, through the legs and then up the back, the major chakras are: The minor and mini-chakras are located throughout the body in the jaw, hands, feet, arms, and legs.
But since most significant health problems can be addressed by working on the major chakras alone, this book does not discuss in detail the minor and mini-chakras though several remedies in Chapter 13 refer briefly to them. Here is a brief description of each of the major chakras: The crown chakra is located at the top of the skull and energizes and controls the brain and the pineal gland.
It is also one of the most important access points for prana into the body because prana entering the crown energizes the entire body. The forehead chakra is located in the center of the forehead and energizes and controls the nervous system. The ajna chakra is located between the eyebrows and energizes and controls the pituitary gland and endocrine system.
The ajna is also important because it is the seat of our will power and conscious thought processes. The throat chakra is located at the Adam's apple and controls the throat, trachea, larynx, esophagus, thyroid gland, and lymphatic system. The throat chakra is also connected to the sex chakra, as it is the upper center of creativity, while the sex chakra is the lower center of creativity.
The heart chakra is in the center of the chest and has two aspects: The front heart chakra is located directly behind the sternum or breastbone. The back heart chakra is located on the spine, between the shoulder blades and directly opposite the front heart chakra. The heart chakra controls the heart, the lungs, and the thymus gland.
The solar plexus chakra also has a front and back aspect. The front solar plexus chakra is located in the soft area just below the sternum or breastbone and controls the stomach, pancreas, intestines, and diaphragm. The back solar plexus chakra is located on the spine directly opposite the front solar plexus chakra.
The solar plexus chakras are the seat of all our emotions. The front solar plexus controls our expressed emotions -- for example, anger that you let out.
The back solar plexus controls our suppressed emotions -- for example, fears that you bottle up. Because of its connection to the emotions and its proximity to the heart, the front solar plexus chakra also has an energetic and health link to the heart chakra and the physical heart. The spleen chakra, like the heart and solar plexus chakras, has both a front and back aspect.
The front spleen chakra is located near the left lowermost rib, or what is called the floating rib. The back spleen chakra is located on the back directly opposite the front spleen chakra. The spleen chakra is important because it draws in prana, assimilates it, and distributes it to all the other chakras.
The navel chakra is located at the navel and is one of the body's main power centers. It controls the large and small intestines and affects the birth process.
In many Eastern systems, particularly those derived from Taoist teachings, practitioners are taught to focus on the navel chakra during meditation to build up energy. The meng mein chakra, or "gate of life," is located on the back between the kidneys directly opposite the navel chakra.
This is a key power center, for it acts as a pumping station for energy from the basic chakra. It controls the kidneys, adrenal glands, and upper urinary tract, as well as the blood pressure. The sex chakra is located behind the pubic bone. In men, this is behind the base of the penis; in women behind the G-spot. The sex chakra controls the pelvic organs, including the bladder, the prostate in men , the uterus and ovaries in women , and the sexual organs.
The basic chakra is located at the base of the spine, at the tailbone or coccyx. The basic chakra controls the bones, the muscles, the soft tissue and blood production, as well as the adrenal glands. It also controls the body's general vitality and energy level. Some forms of yoga, as well as some energy or meditation systems that are concerned primarily with spiritual development, mention only seven chakras. These seven usually include: A seven-chakra system may be effective for pure spiritual development, but it is inadequate for physical healing because it omits some important chakras that control and energize key parts of the body -- for example, the front and back solar plexus chakras, the sex chakra, and the meng mein.
Furthermore, it does not acknowledge the front and back aspects of the heart and spleen chakras. Meridians Meridians are the body's energy channels. Certain Indian esoteric systems, such as Ayurveda and yoga, refer to these energy channels as nadis. Although meridians carry the body's prana, they are not the same as our nervous system, nor do they follow closely the nerve paths or any other physiological paths identified by Western medicine -- for example, the circulatory or lymph systems.
The body has several large meridians and hundreds of smaller ones. In this book, we focus on only the two largest channels, for two reasons: One major meridian runs down the front of the body from the crown on the top of the head down through the heart, front solar plexus, navel, and sex chakras and ends at the perineum the soft area between the genitals and the anus. In Chinese systems, this meridian is called the functional channel. The corresponding major meridian on the back runs up from the perineum through the basic, the meng mein, the back solar plexus, the back heart, to the crown.
Chinese systems call this the governor channel. Those who have read about any Chinese or Taoist systems or practiced them may be familiar with these two channels because together, they comprise what is sometimes called the "microcosmic orbit" or "small heavenly circle. Auras Of your body's three auras -- outer, inner, and health -- Pranic Healing is most concerned with the inner aura. The inner aura is composed of the prana emanating from the chakras and the meridians. Thus, it is on the inner aura that you perform the energy manipulation techniques of scanning feeling energetic disturbances , sweeping cleaning away energetic congestion , and energizing supplementing areas of pranic deficiency.
These techniques are covered in Chapters 5 through 9. With this discussion of energetic anatomy as a backdrop, let us take a closer look at the bio-force that powers our energetic anatomy, prana. Prana There are three principal sources of prana: All living things have the innate ability to absorb and utilize prana to sustain life. We do this unconsciously. For instance, we get solar prana through exposure to sunlight. We get air prana through the act of respiration. And we absorb ground prana through our feet as we walk around every day.
We also get prana from the food we eat, but consuming food is merely an indirect way of obtaining prana that ultimately comes from the air, earth, and sun. Other, more powerful, conscious methods of acquiring prana can be employed to obtain both a greater quantity and a higher quality of this life force.
These more powerful prana-generation techniques are the key to effective self-healing. Energy generation is discussed in detail in Chapters 8 and 12, but Table 1-II gives you a look at the range of some of these techniques. While all prana is energy, there are slight variations in the quality of the prana, depending on the source. For instance, solar prana is more refined than ground prana, which means that solar prana vibrates at a higher frequency than earth prana and is composed of smaller, finer particles.
While all prana can be used for physical healing, its level of refinement dictates its suitability for certain purposes. For instance, higher-frequency prana is used for spiritual development and healing delicate areas, while lower-frequency prana is used for increasing physical power and healing not-so-delicate areas.
Prana can be used to relieve serious health problems. It can even be projected over great distances without losing its strength or effectiveness.
But your prana can also be diminished or weakened by many factors, including your beliefs, emotions, attitudes, inhibitions, and traumatic memories, the food you eat, the people you associate with, where you work and live, how you work and live, what you say, what you think, and how you react to the general level of stress in your life.
In general, your state of health is tied to your supply of prana. When your prana is clean and plentiful, you are in good physical and mental health. When your prana is low or dirty, you typically experience some type of health problem.
Now let's perform an experiment that will allow you to feel your own prana. Exercise 1-A: Detecting Your Own Personal Energetic Anatomy -- Hand Sensitivity Exercise 1 The easiest and quickest way to understand prana and your energetic anatomy, and how simple it can be to work with both, is to learn to feel your own personal energy.
In this exercise, you will sensitize your hand chakras, which are located in the center of the palm Figure , to feel the energy between them. You may sit or stand while performing this exercise. Put your tongue on the roof of your mouth just behind the hard palate the hard ridge behind your top row of teeth. Keep it there throughout the exercise. This connects the two major energy channels that run down the front and back of your body along which your major chakras are located.
It also increases your sensitivity to energy. Take four slow, deep breaths, breathing in and out all the way down to the bottom of your lungs. Breathe in and out through your nose. This helps clear and calm the mind, as well as relax the body. Wrist rolls: Extend your arms straight out in front of you at shoulder height.
Roll your hands at the wrists 10 times in both directions; make small circles with your hands pivoting at the wrist, stirring 10 times clockwise and 10 times counterclockwise. Hand openers: Open and close your hands vigorously 10 times. Elbow, finger shake: Begin with your arms at your sides. Bring your fists up near your shoulders as if you were curling a dumbbell in your hands. The back of your hands should be facing away from you. From this position, snap your arms down, flicking your fingers open as you reach the bottom, as if you were dropping the imaginary dumbbells, and then back up 10 times quickly.
Take care not to hyperextend your elbow bend it beyond its natural range of motion or jolt the joint. This movement should not hurt. Extend your hands in front of you, with your palms about 3 inches apart and facing each other as if you are about to clap your hands. Spread your fingers. Now with the thumb of your right hand press down lightly into the center of your left palm for a few seconds.
Then repeat the movement with your other hand, using your left thumb to press down into your right palm. Now hold your elbows close to your waist with your forearms extended in front of you, parallel to the ground.
Keep your hands relaxed with your palms facing each other about 3 inches apart as if you were about to clap your hands. Close your eyes. Keeping your hands a few inches apart, just breathe slowly and focus lightly on the centers of your palms. Do this for about 30 seconds Figure Then, keeping your hands, wrists, and elbows steady, begin to move your arms in and out a few inches from each other, moving your hands closer together and then farther apart.
Pretend you are clapping your hands in very slow motion, but don't let your hands meet. Bring your palms to within an inch or two of each other and then, slowly, move them out about a foot, and then bring them close together again. Repeat this action for about 30 seconds.
Very shortly, you'll feel some resistance between your palms, as if you're holding a balloon, or your palms will begin to tingle or get itchy or warm.
When you do sense this resistance, heat, or buzzing in your hands, what you are feeling is your energy, your prana, the life force that surrounds and interpenetrates the bodies of all living things. Don't worry if you don't feel this energy on your first try. If you don't sense a warmth or tingling sensation in your palms after completing this exercise once, stop for a few moments, take a few deep breaths, focus on your palms, and start the exercise from the beginning again.
You'll feel the energy before too long. You'll Still Be Able to Heal We frequently tell our students that those who can't feel the energy immediately can still make this system work for them.
Most important, you will still be able to perform healings. When I Master Co started with Pranic Healing, I had a technical, skeptical mind from my engineering training and background , and was hindered further by a strict religious upbringing that did not look favorably upon energy healing. Despite daily practice, I was not able to feel the energy for almost two-and-a-half years.
Yet I stayed with the system because I was still able to produce remarkable healings. The incident that really convinced me of the effectiveness of Pranic Healing came when I healed my wife, Daphne, of several compound fractures of her right hip. Daphne had fallen 14 feet, and the orthopedic surgeon who put her in traction to align the bones said it would take at least three-and-a-half months before she could even begin to try to walk again.
I began applying Pranic Healing three times daily and subsequent visits to the orthopedic surgeon revealed that her hip was healing rapidly. Finally, in only five weeks -- one-third the minimum time her doctor projected -- she was up and running, literally. At about the same time, I also relieved my mother's chronic indigestion in only a few minutes, helped several clients reduce lumps by at least 75 percent, and had one client whose liver cancer went into remission for a year.
These are dramatic results, but they are just a handful of the healings that I was able to accomplish before I was fully sensitized and able to feel prana. As an instructor over the last ten years, I have witnessed many students who did not immediately feel energy and still were able to relieve their classmates of various aches, pains, and ailments.
The important point to understand is that Pranic Healing is not dependent ultimately on the practitioner's being able to feel energetic disturbances. If you still can't feel prana by the time you get to the specific health remedies in Chapter 13, you can still heal simply by following the step-by-step instructions.
Each specific health remedy is a tested, proven "recipe" designed to address the energetic imbalances related to a specific health problem, and you don't need to be able to feel the energy to make the remedy work for you.
As you work through the progressive exercises in this book, if you can't feel the prana, simply relax and continue with the program and your practice. You will feel the energy before too long. The methods of teaching Pranic Healing have improved dramatically over the last ten years. As a result, the vast majority of students today can feel the energy at the end of the first class, and 95 percent can feel their energy within two weeks if they practice hand sensitivity daily.
We've based this book on those same new techniques and technologies, so just stick with your practice, and you will feel the prana. Scientific Evidence of an Energetic Template and Self-Healing Ability While mainstream medicine has been slow -- and often outright reluctant -- to accept the principles of energy medicine, some medical researchers have conducted experiments that support its basic tenets.
Robert Becker, an orthopedic surgeon at New York University, performed some interesting investigations into the regenerative ability of simple, less evolved life forms that strongly support the notion of an energetic template, or mold. Becker cites the work of Swiss scientist Abraham Trembley, who found several species of hydras a small, tube-shaped freshwater polyp that regenerate if cut into pieces, as long as the piece had a portion of the central "stalk" or body.
Becker also references at length the experiments of Lazzaro Spallanzani, an Italian priest who showed that a salamander could regrow a tail or a limb if it was cut off.
Becker points out that if both the tail and the leg of the salamander are removed, you can take some tail cells and move them to the area of the severed limb, and they will grow into a limb. Before these experiments, it had been thought that these tails cells had differentiated -- that is, their genetic code had been programmed to grow into a tail. But the experiments indicate that the salamander's tail cells can de-differentiate become general cells and then redifferentiate into cells coded for a different purpose to grow into a limb.
In the salamander body, some force or consciousness in its cells somehow knew to grow a limb, even though the cells that had been placed into the area of the severed limb had already been programmed to grow into a tail.
According to traditional scientific thinking, this is not supposed to be possible.
