Energy Healing Fundamentals - Learn How You Can Heal Yourself

Energy Medicine is a healing modality that empowers the individual on the path of self-healing. Can be used as an adjunct to allopathic (Western) medicine, but is especially useful when no other alternative is available: for example wilderness travel, disaster situations where mainstream resources are overwhelmed, etc. Energy Healing is about self-sufficiency and self-healing.
From the moment we wake up and heat our breakfast in our microwave, check the weather forecast on our smart phone, read our email via wireless internet and listen to the radio on the way to work, we are constantly interacting with invisible energy. In fact, these radio signals, cell phone conversations, text messages, data transmissions are swirling around us everywhere we go. And the way we interact with these energies is by using specific technology developed to interface with that sort of invisible energy.

When we talk about our perception of reality, we necessarily involve two things - our senses and our technology. As our senses change, our awareness of the world changes. Anyone who has lost their sense of smell or hearing can attest to this. As our technology changes, our awareness of the natural world changes as well. Consider the invention of night vision goggles, machines that can "hear" sub-sonic frequencies or telescopes that can see beyond our imagination. These technologies have expanded our perception of reality by expanding our awareness.

We are also surrounded by naturally-occurring "invisible energy" as well, such as magnetism, radiation, etc., which science has "discovered" by developing technology to measure these energies. Of course, these natural invisible energies existed before scientists created the tools to measure them, and as scientific technology advances, new discoveries are being made every day. So, from a healing perspective, what if, in addition to the electrical energy of our heart and brain, the body has additional energy fields that science has not "discovered," that is, figured out how to measure? Would these be important to know about? Would you like to learn how to develop your personal "technology" to interact with them?

What is energy medicine?

Over the last 20-30 years in this country, the idea of complementary and integrative medicine has transitioned through the stages of acceptance, has captured people's attention and entered the mainstream. Most people have heard of acupuncture, and have maybe used the services of a chiropractor or massage therapist, and maybe take some supplements. But do you know that in addition to that, you actually have the ability to heal yourself? Energy medicine is the emerging technology that empowers you to heal yourself and others. Energy medicine is wireless healing for the 21st century.

One special type of energy healing is called Pranic Healing. Pranic Healing is a highly developed and tested system of energy medicine that utilizes prana to balance, harmonize and transform the body's energy processes. Prana is a Sanskrit word that means life-force. This invisible energy keeps the body alive and maintains a state of good health. In acupuncture, the Chinese refer to this subtle energy as "chi," as in Tai Chi. The Japanese refer to it as "ki," as in Akido.

Pranic Healing is a simple yet powerful and effective no-touch system that is applied on the bio-electromagnetic field known as the aura, which surrounds the physical body. The reason Pranic Healing works is that physical ailments first appear as energetic disruptions in the aura before manifesting as problems in the physical body.

Pranic Healing is based on the fundamental principle that the body is a self-repairing living entity that possesses the innate ability to heal itself. It is based on the principle that the healing process is accelerated by increasing the life force or vital energy on the affected part of the physical body. Pranic Healing works on physical issues such as broken bones, heart problems, and high blood pressure, as well as psychological issues such as depression, stress and phobias.
