By Jamuna Rangachari January 2007 Founder of the World Pranic Healing Foundation, Grand Master Choa Kok Sui divulges the secrets of abundant health Grand master Choa Kok Sui, founder of the World Pranic Healing Foundation, stumbled upon the ancient science of pranic healing (as its name indicates, its origins are Indian) in 1987, through 18 years of immersion in esoteric healing practices such as yoga, Chinese Qi Kung and others. A Manila-based Roman Catholic businessman of Chinese descent, with a degree in chemical engineering, he is a spiritual teachers, writer and tireless advocate of this deceptively simple healing system. Thanks to his efforts, numerous healing centers and retreats dot 26 countries around the globe. Apart from the World Pranic Healing Foundation, Inc, which disseminates knowledge through the more receptive regions of Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe, India, Africa and South America, he has founded the Institute for Inner Studies with the objective of spreading the word in the West. Today, pranic healing, along with reiki, is one of the premium energy healing systems in the world and is instrumental in shifting a vast number of people towards a spiritual perception of the universe as an ‘ananta urja’ (a sea of energy). Pranic healing works at the auric level. Healers are trained to discern auras by activating the chakras on their palms, and at a more advanced level, on their fingertips. Through experience they learn to distinguish between healthy and diseased auras, and to cleanse and heal the latter before energizing with prana from the sun, air or earth. They adhere to the Indian perception of the human body as composed of many sheaths, which they collectively call the aura. Disease first manifests at the auric level and, if detected, can be healed much faster than if treated at the physical stage. Pranic healing has been known to cure simple ailments such as headaches, colds and coughs, but is equally capable of addressing major illnesses such as strokes, arthritis, hormonal imbalance and frigidity, to name a few. Excerpts from the interview: How would you define good health?Good health nowadays means more than just being physically healthy. More and more people feel that good health should include being emotionally and mentally healthy. Emotional health probably should not be limited to having a stress-free life (or even having just minimal stress). Emotional health should probably also include the ability to generate, produce, and experience, the appropriate positive emotion required by the situation. Mental health likewise should not be limited to being sane. It should probably include also the ability to focus and concentrate (dharana), as well as the ability to be sensitive and aware of one’s surroundings (dhyana). In pranic healing we have a simpler way of putting it. If a person has a clean aura and his/her chakras are likewise clean and functioning properly, then that person is in good health. The chakras have physiological, psychological, and spiritual functions. So if the chakras are in good condition, the person is physically, psychologically, and spiritually healthy. Today, on one hand, there are major advances in medical science but, on the other, there is an increase in lifestyle disease like hypertension and diabetes. What would you attribute this to?There could be factors other than lifestyle that may have contributed to an increase in the incidence of ailments like hypertension and diabetes. Improper diet and nutrition, for example, could be an important factor. The population explosion is also a factor to be considered when looking at increase in incidence of ailments. Furthermore, major advances in science could be caused by other factors (like technological development, shifts in funding emphasis, etc.), which could be unrelated or completely different from those that cause the increase in ailments. Could you share some of your experiences on better health through tapping into the universal energy source?If we assume that by ‘universal energy source’ you mean ‘prana’, then tapping this source can be done through proper breathing, proper exercise, and proper diet, among others. What led you to pranic healing?My interest in pranic healing started from childhood. When I was in my teens, I was already reading many books on spiritual sciences, religion, and philosophy, among others. I was lucky that when I was growing up there were a few spiritual friends who nurtured my interests and encouraged me to continue my studies in pranic healing and esoteric sciences. You could say it was meant to be. Ignoring ‘energy’ as a prime factor of health has been the trend. In what manner has this affected our perceptions of good health?I thought the present trend was for more and more people to consider ‘life-energy’ as a major factor in health. Now, more and more people are aware that health is not limited to having a disease-free physical body. Now, more and more people are aware that the quality of their thoughts and emotions affect their health. Do you think modern, i.e., allopathic medicine will benefit from understanding more of the principles of alternative systems of healing?Yes. Knowing how to utilize prana or life-energy for healing will provide allopathic medicine with an additional tool with which to treat common ailments. How do colors and elements affect our health?Certain colors affect us psychologically. For example, light orange (or peach) makes us feel enthusiastic. Red makes us feel dynamic. So given the right colors, one’s moods can be affected. What does one’s aura indicate and how can we use it to diagnose our state of health better?Among other things, the aura indicates the quantity of life energy or prana in our system. Generally speaking, the inner aura is about four inches thick from the surface of the skin. So if the aura is less than four inches, the energy level is low, the person could be depleted, tired, or sick. If the aura is more than four inches thick, the energy level is high, maybe the person is happy or excited. If it is too high, maybe the person is having a fever. Pranic healing talks of Arhatic yoga. What are its principles and how can one benefit from its practice?Arhatic yoga teaches us to live a disciplined balanced life. Arhatic yoga enables the practitioner to achieve rapid spiritual growth without losing balance. Having a background in pranic healing provides the arhatic yogi with a better understanding of the chakras and the spiritual anatomy of the atma. It may not be possible to cure all diseases but one could learn to live with them in a better manner by healing ourselves. Would you agree that a focus on ‘curing’ as opposed to ‘healing’ has led to the neglect of mental and spiritual health?Perhaps too much focus on the treatment of the physical body and the physical manifestations of the ailments has led to the neglect of mental and spiritual health. If the aura is less than four inches, the energy level is low, the person could be depleted, tired, or sick. Do you think most diseases can be healed?Yes. Nothing is impossible for God. Should God decide that a person’s ailment gets healed, it happens. Do you see the world opening up to a holistic view of health?Why not? There are so many people everywhere who are intelligent enough to realize this. Maybe it’s just a matter of time. What are the stumbling blocks, if any, for a state of holistic health?The old ideas, old outmoded patterns of thinking. Narrow mindedness of people is a major stumbling block. How important is religion and spirituality in the context of health?Very important. Spirituality probably more so. What sort of a lifestyle would you advocate for a healthy life?Live a moderate lifestyle. Get sufficient exercise, sleep, rest, and proper food. Have fun every now and then. What is your vision for the new millennium?That people will first become more aware of life-energy / prana and how this energy affects us physically, emotionally, mentally, financially, and spiritually. That people will next utilize the appropriate techniques to use prana to improve their lives physically, emotionally, mentally, financially, and spiritually. What are the illnesses pranic healing can cure?Most simple common ailments like headaches, stomach aches, muscle pains, can be alleviated by pranic healing. What impact has pranic healing had on the general health of its practitioners?Most full-time pranic healers that I have met (from Asia, to the Middle East, to Africa, and Europe), are healthy, happy, financially and spiritually abundant, and rarely get sick. Anything else you would like to share with our readers?Learn more about yourself. One aspect to look into is our own energy system – our auras and chakras unveil a new world that should not be left undiscovered.
