The miracle of self-healing

When an energetic disturbance is present in the body, a disease state is created.

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. Several fascinating investigations into the regeneration ability of simple, less-evolved life forms strongly support the notion of an energetic template.

Newts can regenerate a new eye, including an optic nerve, in about 40 days. Goldfish and salamanders can regenerate spinal fibers. Even humans have some regenerative capability. For instance, the human liver can replace a portion of its mass lost due to injury through something called compensatory hypertrophy, which means the cells’ ability to increase their rate of division to replace the lost tissue. Also, damage to or dysfunction of one kidney frequently leads to enlargement of the other.

With this in mind, the following principles are used in Pranic Healing®:

  • Life can heal itself.
  • Healing is a self-regenerating ability.
  • Healing is a self-regenerating force which intelligence can direct.
  • Healing is an energetic template that directs cells to grow and differentiate.

Prana is essential to self-healing. These simple laws underpin the energy and healing at work in Pranic Healing®, as developed by Grandmaster Choa Kok Sui.

Proper energy flow through the body creates a state of health. This is the most fundamental truth about prana, the body, the mind and our health. If the aura is clean, the meridians clear, and the chakras balanced and functioning properly, the body is in a state of physical and mental health.

When an energetic disturbance is present in the body, a disease state is created. If the body’s energy is disrupted in some way, if it is prevented from flowing smoothly through the meridians, to and from the chakras, and to and from the organs, a health problem is present or pending.

There are two types of energetic disturbances: congestion, which is an accumulation of either excess or dirty prana, and depletion, which is a deficiency of prana. These energetic disturbances can be either general (occurring throughout the entire aura) or local (occurring in a specific area, chakra or meridian). For the body to return to a state of health, these energetic disturbances must be corrected.

You can sense, increase and direct the body’s supply of prana to improve your health — if you have the proper training. Prana is a living force; it has consciousness. It can be built up and consciously controlled. There is a saying in chi kung practice: “The chi follows the yi.” Chi is another word for prana, the universal life force. We do not have a perfectly equivalent word for yi in English, but it generally refers to the mind or intent. Thus, the rough translation is: “energy follows thought”; prana goes where you intend it to go. You want to build up a surplus of prana and direct it to improve your health.

The body always moves toward homeostasis, a state of stability or equanimity between different but interdependent groups or elements of an organism. All systems in nature move toward balance. The body, too, seeks a balanced energetic level. Why? This state of equilibrium, or health, is our natural state. Our body naturally seeks health.

Illnesses manifest in the energy body before they manifest in the physical body. The energy body is the template or mold for the physical body; it surrounds and interpenetrates the physical body. Thus, health problems occur first as irregularities or disturbances in the energy body before they become symptoms or full-blown health problems in the physical body. By treating problems at the energetic level, you heal the physical body. Through regular energy-generation exercises and proactive steps to keep the energy body clean, you help prevent physical ailments from occurring and greatly diminish their effects if they do physically manifest.

c When energy healing is applied to the aura, very rapid and dramatic positive results often occur in the physical body. But there can also be a slight lag time before the healing manifests in the physical body. The lag time depends on factors such as the healer’s experience and proficiency, the complexity and severity of the health problem, and the current energy level of the person with the affliction.

One of the root causes of the energetic disturbances that are responsible for many physical ailments is frequent negative thoughts, emotions, beliefs and memories, which contain real energy that is stored unconsciously in the physical body. Consider this: how do you know when you are nervous, angry or fearful? Not through intellectual awareness. Usually it is by feeling a physical manifestation in your body — for example, stomach spasms, a tight neck, an increased heart rate, a sudden urge to use the restroom, heavy perspiration, etc. Negative emotions themselves do not cause problems; our resistance to feeling them and releasing their energy in a constructive way causes the problem.

When you avoid feeling negative emotions and beliefs, your body’s musculature physically constricts and holds onto them. Held tightly in the body over a period of time, these negative emotions, limiting beliefs and traumatic memories form blockages and energetic disturbances that lead to physical health problems. Your health can be affected adversely by external factors such as bacteria and viruses, as well as poor life choices, bad habits and accidents. But many health problems result from energetic disturbances that are ultimately caused by the unconscious mind trapping a negative emotion or limiting belief in the body.

Your body seeks to heal itself and return to health, its natural state. You can develop skills to help regain or maintain your health. It is a self-regenerating, energetic template that you can learn to do — using only your own two hands.
