is Pranic Healing?
The essence of Pranic healing deals with the transfer of fresh rejuvenating
Prana to the patient through a set of techniques, that does not require physical
contact (touch) or the use of drugs and gadgets. Essentially, the healer works on
the energy field of the patient. It is based on the principle that the body has
the ability to heal itself.
Energy body or Aura
Pranic healing is applied on the 'aura' or the energy field that surrounds the physical body. The aura, called the bioplasmic body, extends to about 4-5 inches from the surface of the skin. Called 'Pranamaya Kosha' in Sanskrit, aura is an invisible luminous energy field that interpenetrates the physical body.
Prana is absorbed and distributed throughout the physical body only through the energy body. This Pranic energy can be projected from one person to another. The Chakras help to distribute this energy throughout the physical body.
Diseased Energy or Blockages
The energy that makes a person sick is called diseased energy or negative energy. This energy initially shows up on the energy body or aura. Research shows that diseased energies appear first in the energy body before appearing as an ailment in the physical body. Use of Pranic energy on the diseased part of the body helps in the acceleration of the healing process. Significantly, it helps the body heal without medication.
Pranic healing helps rectify the imbalances in the body & energy field and transmit Prana to the patient.
Techniques involved in Pranic Healing
healers scan the energy field of the patient to detect the disturbances in the energy body. Hands are used to initiate the process of healing. Located in the palm of the hands are energy centers called chakras. These chakras when activated become sensitive to feeling the energy of other beings. Thus it is possible to scan the energy field and locate blockages. These areas can be cleansed, energized and replenished with the fresh supply of Prana. Diseases manifest when there is depletion or congestion of Prana in the chakras.
This is done by the hands. This involves removing the diseased energy from the aura of a being.
Infusing vitalized energy or Prana into the body through the chakras is called energizing. When the aura is energized by Prana, it helps in healing the ailments at the physical, mental and spiritual levels.
Thus, Pranic healing helps in healing oneself and others through the use of Prana.

Ways to Absorb Prana
Correct deep breathing technique helps in the copious flow of Prana through the entire aura and all the chakras. People who practice this form of breathing rhythmically absorb plenty of Prana. Correct breathing establishes equilibrium between positive and negative currents in the body.
After taking a deep breath, it is possible to increase the amount of Prana by visualizing the vital force entering the body and penetrating every cell in the being. The positive energy attracts more positive energy. Through this, it is possible to build on the Prana.
Internal 'chi' power, life force or Prana can be developed through meditation. If this power is potent enough, the latent capacity to absorb and project the 'chi' energy to the patient also increases. Without spiritual energy it is not possible to develop strong internal 'chi'. So, it is highly recommended to practice meditation.

Yoga, a proper lifestyle and positive thoughts also improve the aura of a person.
