The word prana comes from the Sanskrit meaning life force. It is a highly developed and long used system of energy based healing. It utilizes the prana to balance, transform, and harmonize the bodies energy. Chinese refer to this as Chi, or qi. It is a bioenergy that keeps the body balance, in good health, and alive. It is still used today ayurvedic medicine, yoga and traditional Chinese medicine.
In pranic healing this natural life force can be influenced to bring about a healthier physical body. The outline of the human body is called aura. This bioelectrical field is manipulated in a way that helps the body to heal itself. In your hands are energy centers called chakras. These chakras can become sensitive to the energy fields of another person. The pranic healer can energize and cleanse areas with new prana.
Pranic healing procedures are easy to learn. There are three main sources of prana, solar prana, air prana and earth prana. Solar prana comes from the sun and is absorbed through the skin. Air prana comes into the body through the lungs. Deep rhythmic breathing is taught mainly for this purpose. Earth prana or ground prana is absorbed to the soles of your feet. Walking barefoot increases this absorption. Ground prana creases your ability to think more clearly and the capacity to do more work thus the term grounded.
A good example of shifting prana's is when the weather changes to a cloudy, stormy pattern. People notice a change in mood due to the change in solar and air prana. You can feel mentally sluggish. This can be compensated by mentally absorbing more ground prana. Certain trees are especially good for this. Large Pines or old trees have a lot of excess prana. Just being around trees can re-energize you.
Different exercise systems utilize prana. Qigong, tai chi, and yoga represent a blending of spiritual path and movement. When done properly they are said to influence the energy flow of the body.
