What do we know about pranic healing, an alternative healing to medical

PRANIC HEALING is an ancient science and art of healing that uses PRANA to heal. Pranic healing was created by a Chinese-Filipino spiritual teacher and energy master named Master Choa Kok Sui, who spent years researching the root teachings of esoteric systems such as yoga, chi kung and many others in order to create a simple, practical, effective ‘optimum’ energy healing system that anyone could learn and use.

PRANA is the life force or energy that keeps the body healthy and alive. Prana is also called CHI or KI. That’s why we have Tai chi, Chi Kung and Aikido all dealing with energy. Prana comes from four main sources: the air, the sun, the earth and the trees.

The topic of our health issue this week is about Pranic Healing as an alternative healing to Medical healing. Our health adviser Dr Azadeh Senior Lecturer at the UTG invited Mrs Alida Moukhtara and her colleague Mrs Reyes Jallow to explain about the science of healing which is fortunately now available in the Gambia.

Health Matters: What is actually PranicHealing?

Pranic healing is based on two principles: THE PRINCIPLE OF SELF RECOVERY AND THE PRINCIPLE OF LIFE FORCE. The body has the capacity of healing itself. You may take antibiotics to combat infections, dose yourself with aspirin to reduce pain, get a cast on a broken wrist, but drugs and medical procedures themselves don’t heal you. They reduce inflammation, battle bacteria, or in the case of a cast or operation, make proper healing possible. But your body heals itself. And it does it magnificently. Your body has the amazing, innate ability to repair itself.

Medical science can explain the neurological and biochemical responses involved in healing a cut finger: the nerves carry the pain message to your brain to indicate the problem; white blood cells rush to the area to combat dirt or germs; platelets clot the blood and begin forming a scab; and skin cells grow back underneath the scab. But medical science does not know how the body knows how to do this.

We know intuitively that there must be a consciousness behind this self healing ability, one that knows how to work in the same way that our body knows how to breathe without us having to command our lungs to inhale and exhale. We have a storehouse of energy that our body uses for healing. Otherwise, white blood cells wouldn’t be able to multiply and carry away infection and inflammation from the site of a cut. Skin cells wouldn’t be able to repair and create new cells. Traditional medical thinking holds that both this healing process and the energy used in it are beyond our willful control. But what if you could consciously control this supposedly unconscious self healing process? What if you could learn to harness the most vital component in that process, the healing energy that your body uses to repair itself? What if you could learn to increase and direct that healing energy to improve your general well being and relieve specific health problems? That’s what PRANIC HEALING is about.

What is the difference between a medical doctor and a Pranic healer?

A medical doctor heals the physical body and a Pranic healer heals the energy body.

Pranic healing teaches that illness and health problems results from disturbances to the flow of prana through a network of power centers, passageways and energy fields that interpenetrate the physical body called the energetic anatomy or energy body or aura.

The energetic anatomy has five basic components: The chakras, the meridians, the inner aura, the outer aura and the health aura. A disease will appear at the energy body before manifesting at the physical body. Pranic healers can start healing a patient before medical examinations reveal the existence of the ailment. When a disease is manifested at the physical level the medical doctor will heal the patient’s physical body and the healer will heal the energy body. Pranic healing is a complementary therapy to orthodox medicine.

There are two conditions that affect our health: CONGESTION AND DEPLETION. Congestion is when the body has excess energy or contaminated energy and depletion is when the body doesn’t’ have enough energy. This can happen in the whole body or in a specific area of the body.

There are two main techniques for healing: CLEANSING AND ENERGIZING. The healer cleanses the dirty or contaminated energy of the affected part and then energizes it with fresh prana.

Pranic healing is a non-touch therapy that together with orthodox medicine can cure all types of diseases from physical such as colds, headache, high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma etc. to emotional and psychological such as stress, depression, grief, anxiety, addiction, phobias etc.


We practice ‘Twin Hearts meditation’ because the two main energy centers, the heart being for human love and the crown being for divine love are activated. During meditation a huge amount of energy comes in through the crown center, the energy body becomes very energized and then we can project the energy to the whole earth and bless it with peace, happiness, loving kindness. It is a guided meditation, one just has to seat, relax and be receptive.

Benefits of Twin Hearts Meditation

Among all the meditation techniques revealed to public, Meditation on Twin Hearts is perhaps one of the most effective and efficient meditations that has recorded many glowing testimonials of personal healing, spiritual uplifting, relationship improvements and positive life transformations.

Being a guided short 20minute meditation, it has been one of the favorite meditations of all time which yet stands as one of the most powerful methods for achieving peace and illumination.

Among the thousands of life changing testimonials, include:

Recharged Body and Improved Health

When doing the Meditation on Twin Hearts, lots of divine energy enters our system which cleanses the dirty, diseased, used up energies and improves health. This shows itself as recharged body.

Sense of Peace and Happiness

Once the Hearts Chakra opens during the meditation and once the old emotional stuff flushes out of our system, we feel an inner peace within us and we are filled with love and happiness.

Better Self Esteem

Twin Hearts helps us remove the old picture of us and create a positive image. With more power, with cleaner system, more refined emotions and lots of divine energy we can achieve many things in life.

More Harmonizing Relationships

By doing Twin Hearts we will be filled with love; our Heart Chakra expands and our Crown Chakra is activated. Once we use the generated energy to bless a person or a place after the meditation, it helps in bringing more harmony, love and peace for them as well.

Sharper and More Intelligent Mind

Once the old emotional thoughts and emotions are cleared from our system, we will have clearer mind and faster decision making.

More Good Luck

You have been heard about the famous phrases like “what we sow is what we reap” and “it is in giving that we receive.”

When we bless every person, every being on earth with love and light, peace and joy, hope and faith, we will see that even in difficult situations we will find help, hope and peace.

Increased Energetic Sensitivity and Clairvoyance Ability

Twin Hearts helps us to become more sensitive to the world of subtle energies. It also develops the Clairvoyance faculty and our awareness.

Improved Intuition

By developing the Crown Chakra, our intuition will be developed. People often call it direct knowing or inner guidance. Intuition is a great tool to understand life and live it to the fullest with minimum mistakes.

Besides the personal developments, Meditation on Twin Hearts is also a great way of service to the world by increasing harmony and world peace. It can be used for the benefit of an individual, a family, a community and greater than all for the benefit of the entire world.

Pranic healing has been in the Gambia since 2006.At the Pranic Healing Center we give healing sessions, practice healing meditations and organize workshops to become a Pranic healer. Any healthy person over 16 years with an average intelligence and open but discriminating mind and a certain degree of persistence can learn Pranic healing. To achieve a certain degree of proficiency, the Pranic healer requires much practice and time. There are three levels of learning: basic, advance and psychotherapy. The next basic Pranic healing workshop will take place on 13-14 April.
