Prana - Foundation of almost all Energy Healing
What is Prana?
‘Pra’ in Sanskrit indicates to “First”
‘Na’ in Sanskrit indicates “ Unit”
Prana was considered the first unit of everything. In other words, it is the energy that is responsible for all creations whether physical or subtle. In the Panch Kosha or Five Sheaths associated with a person, it the immediate layer beyond the physical body. The concept of Panch Kosha is given in the Aura, Chakra & Meridians page of the site.
All physical objects are also made up of Prana. The Prana in living being are considered to be of a special nature. ‘Prana’ is the entity that is instilling life in a physical body. The body is alive till the Prana is flowing. The moment the Prana cease to flow, the physical body is dead. The breath can affect the flow of Prana in the Pranic body. This property of breath is used in the practice of Pranyama.
Good liveliness of a living being is ensured with good Prana. A fruit sustains freshness till the time the Prana is high. Moment a fruit is plucked from the tree, the supply or Prana from the tree is cut off and the fruit will start losing freshness and start decaying. Body of human being functions better with better flow of Prana. A restful sleep, states of positive emotions, a calm mind and good food are all replenishment of Prana one gets during the course of events. Prana of an individual is also affected by the thoughts of people and the places one visits. Prana at high altitude mountains is much more than at ground level hot plains.
One of the ways to realize Prana fueling physical and mental strengths is the martial art technique of Tai Chi. Tai Chi uses the flow of energy to enhance the physical capability. When the Prana is increase with healing, the physical strength of muscles is increased. This is demonstrated in a number of healing workshops for all to realize that strengthening Prana can give us benefits beyond imagination.
Prana can be called a simplified composite of all forms of energy that modern science is trying to re-search. Prana is what is holding the planets in place. Prana is what is making the light. Prana is making the earth and the beings on it. Prana is making the thoughts and emotions.
Intention, Mental State, Emotions, Focus and Thoughts have an effect on the flow of Prana. The flow and state of Prana is affect by the environmental influence also. Many people thinking good of a person can improve the Prana flow and vice versa. This unique ability of regulating flow of Prana with intentions by sentient beings is utilized in energy healing.

Ancient wisdom of the Prana is foundation of almost all Energy Healing systems. Systems which have evolved from alternate sources now actively use this ancient wisdom of Prana. Nomenclature does not matter, it is something that was and will be. Modern science attempts to give it a new names like ‘Dark Energy’ or ‘God Particle’. The attributes seem to be same as ‘Consciousness’ and ‘Energy’ in ancient wisdom. It is to our benefit to utilize thousands of years of experience of researches that have formulated these simple systems, rather than trying to repudiate the existing knowledge in egoistic search of fresh nomenclatures.
