Healing is an alternative "healing hands" technique; similar
to Reiki in that bodily healing is affected through working with the
essential life-force of the human body. Unlike Reiki, the solitary
practitioner can learn to be an effective Pranic Healer, as no "attunments"
Sanskrit word Prana literally means "life-force", which is the
invisible bio-energy or vital energy that keeps the body alive and
maintains a state of good health. In Japan this same subtle energy is
called Ki; in China, Chi, in Greece, Pneuma and in Polynesia it is known
as Mana. The Hebrews call it Ruah - which means "Breath of
Pranic Healing, it is believed that all illnesses manifest first in the
aura and can (and should) be healed before they ever get to the body. It
is also believed that the aura needs to be "smoothed down"
(sweeping) and sealed after a healing session. (Otherwise the healing
will be negated after a few minutes or hours.) Pranic Healing was
reportedly practised in ancient China, Egypt and India.
Healers cure wide varieties of physical and emotional ills by removing
the diseased energies from the patient's aura (the invisible energy
"body" surrounding all living things); and then transferring
fresh Prana to those areas in the aura. Like Reiki, the healer uses both
hands to accomplish the transfer of energy; but unlike Reiki, one hand
(usually the left) is held palm upwards to "gather the Prana"
and the other hand (usually the right) is held inches above the diseased
area to deliver the Prana into the aura. Unlike Reiki, it is believed a
Pranic Healer can actually take on the illness of the patient if due
caution is not exercised.
Healer's state of mind is very important. Ideally they should be full of
compassion and perform the session with loving kindness; but also with a
degree of detachment to minimise the chances of the Healer taking on the
illness and to make cutting the etheric link more efficient. But first,
you must establish an etheric link to your patient.
working on yourself or others, do not wear silk, leather or rubber; as
these are believed to impede the flow of prana. Ideally the healer would
be barefooted. If you are doing healings on several patients, or someone
who is very ill, have a basin of salted water handy. (This is to
"flick" the diseased prana into. It will keep the "bad
prana" from clinging to the healer and possibly causing a mirror
illness.) The patient should NOT wash the treated area for 12 to 24
hours; 36 hours if it was a very serious or stubborn case. The Healer
should wash thoroughly after performing the treatment
basic techniques used in Pranic Healing are:
releasing or cutting the etheric link.
Pranic Healing starts by sensitising the hands so that the patient's
aura can be felt.
by doing deep abdominal breathing (the breathing meditation), slowly
and naturally. (Do not over inflate your lungs.) Allow yourself to
feel and hear the air coming into you. Hold it for 2 seconds then
exhale. Pause 2 seconds then breathe in again. This is an excellent
meditation to control Kundalini release as well as for healing
sessions and relaxation. (The meditation advances into taking note of
external factors while you breathe deeply.) Next you press your nail
into the palm of your hand, so that you feel discomfort. Repeat for
the other hand. You will be focusing on this sensation while you
perform the Pranic Healing Session.
The next step is called scanning. Scanning is done by placing the
palms towards the patient, about 5" from the body, and running
them over the aura. This is to determine where problem areas lie.
noticed several different sensations with my patients. On some, a
depressed area can be felt over the affected part (depletion) or
possibly a rounded raised area (congested Prana); on some people I have
felt what feels like a blast of cold air through a tube. Rather
obviously this "cold blast" is a leakage and needs to be
you determine where the problem areas lie, you do sweeping over the full
aura, you are ready to begin practising Pranic Healing on the patient
(or yourself.) What you are doing is running your palms down over the
patient's auric body and "flicking" or "throwing away the
diseased bioplasmic matter" that clings to your hands; ideally into
a basin of salt water. Do not sweep upwards except in cases where you
need to awaken your patient, and then only one or two passes upwards.
your palms and place one of your palms (usually left) in such a way that
you can draw prana into it. Be sure to lift both of your arms a bit away
from the body. Breathe deeply and naturally.
dominant hand is placed with the palm facing the affected area of the
patients aura. Focus your mind on letting the prana that enters your
left hand flow out through your right hand and into the patients aura.
(Advanced techniques focus on sending coloured prana into the area.)
Do NOT focus prana for more than a few seconds on EYES or HEART areas of
the patient's auric body.
I do advanced Pranic Healing and have had the full Kundalini experience,
I focus on bringing in coloured prana and I tend to circle my hands when
giving the healings. As long as you respect the technique and don't send
prana directly into the eyes or heart chakra for very long, you can't
hurt the patient; so feel free to experiment with stances and movements.
you have sent the prana into an area (usually 20 to 30 minutes, which
you will note is substantially longer than for Reiki treatments), be
sure to do a sweep over the aura again. This accomplishes several goals.
First off it informs you if there is an imbalance in the aura or if the
area is still in need of treatment. It also serves to seal up the aura.
Inform the patient to not wash the area as outlined above; the healer
then needs to "cut the etheric link" between themselves and
the patient, and then the Healer should wash thoroughly to avoid
