SHAKTI, PRANA & BLISS ARE LIFE FORCE ENERGIES
Are We Incomplete Until there Is Spirit Infusing Every Aspect of Our Lives?
Prana, Cosmic Energy for Psychological & Emotional Healing
What am I Trying to Do? (Wednesday, 1-2-2006, Article 32)
I have dedicated my life to finding God or wholeness through the absorption of vital energy into my body. I intend to infuse my physical body with as much prana or vital energy of well-being as possible as soon as possible. What is prana? Go here to more fully understand exactly what prana is.
What is Romeo without Juliet? There would be no story, at least no meaning to the story without the equally important and opposite characters of love. Love has no meaning nor can it even exist without the Lover AND the Beloved. How can there be a positive terminal on a battery without a negative one? There cannot be any current, any energy whatsoever, not even an existence without the two opposite forces essential for creating the wholeness of existence which is God.
How can there be any sort of emotional fulfillment without some sort of union with that which is desired or loved? In yoga, true fulfillment is created when the union of the opposite Shiva and the Shakti principles of life (vitality) within the spinal cord is fully released into each other's "arms". It also seems that one's spirit must somehow be infused with a massive amount of the right kind of vibrational energy (bioplasmic shakti) in order for such an all-fulfilling union to take place. Until that union takes place, there is only temporary happiness at best and lots of suffering and confusion.

It seems imperative that massive amounts of healing pranic energy or bioplasmic energy be present in order to find true wholeness. What I am trying to do is find wholeness through the fine tuning of diet and lifestyle. I try to seek out every day what really creates the most vitality and bliss in my body. The most cleansing, most natural, most nourishing foods and highest levels of antioxidants seem to create this vital effect the most. There is also an entire lifestyle that I am trying to find that creates the most prana (lightness and vitality) in the body.
Because of so many distractions and so many frustrating materialistic obstacles, obligations, etc, trying to do this most essential and very elusive thing has been extremely difficult. Yet, it is THE GOAL OF LIFE. One could have everything the world can offer, but without wholeness, there is no real permanent happiness, only continued existence without any sort of guarantee that life will continue to be tolerable.
Finding God is the perfect marriage of all desire and that which is desired. It is the profoundest joy imaginable times a billion. There is no possible or greater joy than to be in union with the Beloved One. Apparently, in order to have and enjoy this most precious Gift of Life, it is essential to not only develop the capacity to contain a huge flood of prana or life force energy, it also must be provided from some source. I am very interested in trying to find a reliable source for this vitality or prana. Although there are many places in nature that provide prana, I have yet to find an inexpensive and reliable way of concentrating this force either in my home, office or backyard.
I am doing research in finding ways to concentrate prana into the body so that the spirit trapped inside the body is no longer trapped inside it, but can come and go freely like a bird inside an opened cage. There has to be an answer to this fundamental problem of being or feeling so stuck. It may seem strange the thought of being trapped inside one's own body, stuck in the prison (or hell) of he five physical senses, but that is what the human condition or predicament is. I am more than anxious to find a simple way out of physical limitation, and attain liberation, ultimate freedom, and love in a glorious spiritual universe.
Spiritual Energy and the Pranic Principle
There seems to be a universal field of prana in our atmosphere and throughout all of space and time in the Universe. Prana is a Sanskrit word meaning "life" in the context of a "life force" or "vital energy" that fills all living beings with vibrant health and all of nature with a living essence. Prana seems to correspond with the much subtler parts of the Universe such as the spiritual realms. There are many, many names for and aspects of this substance, just there are many names for God, and many aspects of God. Even mainstream science has long postulated the existence of a kind of "ether" that must be responsible for the transmission of light. Later on this "ether" was more accurately defined as some sort of multidimensional geometry of space in a vibrational state.
Life is a guessing game of what the truth really is until there is a truly reliable way to find that truth within one's self through meditation; but not just any kind of meditation, it MUST the kind of meditation that is somehow being infused with enough prana or life force energy to allow the soul to go free. When the body is filled with enough prana, all it's highly disrupting physical needs, thoughts, desires, etc. no longer dominate. That means thirst, hunger, lust, need for love, and even the need to breathe reduces in proportion to the amount of the all-sustaining current of prana present in the body and to the extent the physical body can hold that current. There is nothing more awesome than being in that extremely beautiful, breathless, immortal state of samadhi that a few really lucky yogis get to enjoy. Why can't we all enjoy this wonderful energy?
Even though prana is everywhere, rather like water is to a fish at the bottom of the middle of the Pacific Ocean, that does not mean it is easy to find and concentrate this vitality for spiritual reasons. If that were so, everyone would all be enlightened and not trapped in maya or physical suffering. I have found various ingenious ways to concentrate more prana in my body, including the conservation of sexual fluids and transmutation, fasting, special breathing and aerobic exercises, electrical energy, etc., but I know for sure there are yet more advanced keys to be found, and learning how to achieve the breathless, pulseless state of samadhi is my next step. Freedom of spirit is certain once this all-important state of realization is established.
Achieving great fulfillment and well-being through subtle energy is a most vital and neglected area of research -- How to infuse the body with more prana and achieve the breathless state? How come only a very small handful of people (mainly really advanced yogis) seem to get this far? How can I make the breathless state more easily available? Does the whole world have to remain suffering from the confusion and ignorance of painful separation from God? Can't humanity work together to find a way out?
The main benefit of having more bioplasmic energy in the body could be an increased ability to astral project! Astral projection seems to be a real phenomenon that anyone can eventually learn how to achieve and may become the fastest way to connect with God, Spirit, heaven, and to discover the truth of our existence. It is possible to learn how to lucid dream and have out-of-body experiences through deep meditation before going to sleep at night. Going within to the finer realms of existence could be a major stepping stone in the right direction.
One can learn how to lucid dream and have out-of-body experiences from a 70 minute video. This 70 minute video is packed with tips that many people have used to have their first out of body experiences and lucid dreams. In part one of this video, you'll learn how to use the body's own biology to put yourself in a subconscious focus without using any mental visualizations. This shortens the learning curve immensely and you very well may have an OBE or lucid dream the very first time you use the methods in this video.
Part two covers more advanced methods in which you can take command of your lucid dreaming by doing Wake Induced Lucid Dreams or WILDs. You'll learn a powerful visualization called a teleporting OBE exit that you can use to do a WILD, you'll also learn how to craft your own efficient visualizations.

Breatharianism and Pranic Nourishment
The purpose of this book is to make others aware of the fact that inedia is possible, but not necessarily as a means to become a breatharian "living on light" yourself. The popular idea that breatharians simply "live on air" or even worse, "live on nothing" is misleading. Successful breatharianism which is really quite rare is the result of training the energies of the astral body and cells of the physical body over many, many years (or lifetimes?) to obtain nourishment directly from quantum energy. At the subatomic level, energy can never be used up, and if it is somehow lost, it is immediately replaced by more quantum energy. It may be possible for certain cells in the human body to obtain nourishment from scientifically unknown sources such as astral, spiritual and quantum.
SOURCES OF PRANA
Some of the following sources are not as healthy as others. The more natural sources of prana should be pursued while any artificial sources should not. Various likely sources include:
1) Living beings and vegetation such as
people, animals, trees, and plants
2) A mass or crowd of people in a choir or congregation especially when moving, dancing, singing harmoniously together in a very devotional way
We live in an ocean of energy! Discover what scientists have found to be an amazing source of unlimited energy: the Zero Point Field. There appears to be throughout the entire universe an ambient, ground-state energy field constantly imprinting a record of the shape of everything. It is constantly interacting in perfect equilibrium with all life, all things and all matter. This is the field of all virtual particles (prana) and is the sole sustainer of all the energy in the universe. It has been calculated that even one cubic meter of empty space contains enough of this energy to boil all the oceans of the world.

This encyclopedia presents and explains them all. In the introduction, distant origins of human thought are traced, examining how spiritual beliefs and life force ideas emerged, and how they were developed through time.

The Way of Qigong: The Art and Science of Chinese Energy Healing by Ken Cohen - Editorial Reviews - Amazon.com Review - Qigong (ch'i kung) is the modern incarnation of a Chinese energy art that goes back over 2,000 years. With superior scholarship and scientific acumen, The Way of Qigong covers the entire range of theory and practice, including relaxation, meditation, massage, therapeutic touch, and postures. Qi (ch'i) means "life energy," and the goal of qigong, master and Chinese scholar Ken Cohen tells us, is "to train the mind to send qi where it is needed." In this encyclopedic work, Cohen teaches us not only how to do qigong, but what it means and how it benefits us, from what kind of tea is best in the summer to how to have better sex. Cohen is at his best when reducing arcane Chinese theories to plain English, and as a result, The Way of Qigong is as interesting as it is useful. --Brian Bruya --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From Booklist - As much a "why-to" as a how-to, this is the most comprehensive recently issued book on the Chinese healing art, qigong. Related to t'ai chi, qigong is a series of movements designed to bring qi, or life-force, into the body and encourage it to flow without blockage. Cohen meticulously defines the philosophy that inspired this ancient practice, but his engaged and engaging tone keeps the mass of material he presents from becoming ponderous. He well covers the experimental scientific evidence of qigong's beneficial effect, and the lengthy, illustrated section of exercises he includes shows how qigong can be used for emotional and spiritual as well as physical healing. However many other qigong books are in your library, add this definitive volume. --Patricia Monaghan --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Qi Dao - Tibetan Shamanic Qigong: The Art of Being in the Flow by Lama Somananda Tantrapa, Kali Tara, and Patrick Burke - Editorial Reviews - In this book, Lama Tantrapa goes straight to the essence of Qi Dao teachings that self-realization is synonymous with being in the flow. In doing so, Lama Tantrapa bridges the multiple traditions he has studied Buddhism, Daoism, Dzogchen with the pre-Buddhist, Shamanic tradition of the Tibetan peoples called Bon. His message is simple but not easy that the different forms of practice point to a single, essential shift in personal identity. This critical shift is from the usual way of seeing ourselves as separate from the goings-on of the universal life energy. This shift is an awakening to the realization that one's individual life path is inseparable with the flow of the universal life force. Lama Tantrapa is a constantly inviting each of us to step into that flow of universal life. His book contains both timeless wisdom, and daily practice instructions to help you on your way. The illustrations are some of the finest in print. --Bonnitta Roy, Former President of the National Qigong Association, Founding Editor of The Journal of Qigong in America
Lama Tantrapa has shared his precious family tradition revealing the connection between the way you hold yourself and your culture of movement. Experiencing these teachings will help you release Qi blockages through creative and personal movement practice. It will stimulate you to reveal and manifest innate life dreams as you establish a new paradigm of consciousness for yourself. The most profound dream experiences happened to me after reading this book on more than one occasion. Many doors were opened to deeper and deeper layers of awareness and insight into the intricacies of my subconscious. I feel different as a result. The experiences helped me understand something about myself energetically and gave me a new awareness of the code of my being on this earth. I certainly hope you will delve into this wonderful book to find greater healing, peace and joy in your life. --Shoshanna Katzman, Former President of the National Qigong Association, author of Qigong for Staying Young: A Simple 20-Minute Workout to Culitivate Your Vital Energy
This book is the first in an intended series by Lama Somananda Tantrapa. It is comprehensive, detailed and thorough. I learned a lot from reading it, and became aware of subtleties, aspects and dimensions I had previously missed, or had not paid attention to. In this book he opens new windows, doors, pictures and dimensions to peer through. These are not just sets of good practices and exercises, which are sensible for anybody to do in order to develop their 6th sense, which he calls Kinesthetic Awareness, but there is so much more. The book is peppered and spiced with quotations and stories from the classics, which, like the Zen Master's bamboo stick, kept waking me back up as to why we practice Qigong. Doing these practices will certainly help make you fitter, more flexible, healthier and happier. I certainly recommend reading it, and doing the practices. And he provides DVD's to follow up with. --James McRitchie, the Founder of the National Qigong Association, author of Chi Kung: Energy for Life: An Introduction to the art of cultivating your energy
Product Description - In this ground-breaking book, Lama Somananda Tantrapa shares the ancient wisdom of Tibetan Shamanic Qigong in a simple and practical way. Discovering, testing and applying its principles will remarkably enhance your vitality with greater attentiveness, awareness and presence. It will help you transform and enlighten your life by developing a culture of movement that is naturally graceful and harmonious. It will also provide you with profound psychological and spiritual insights into the true nature of health, relationships and other issues that teach you to approach life challenges as learning opportunities rather than problems.

Energy Medicine by Donna Eden, David Feinstein, and Caroline Myss - Editorial Reviews - Amazon.com Review - This alternative-medicine self-help guide promises to teach you to help heal yourself and others using the body's own natural energies. Building on such diverse concepts as acupuncture and therapeutic touch, Donna Eden lays out a practical framework in Energy Medicine for flushing out and recharging the body's systems.
"This book will show you how to work with the electromagnetic and more subtle energies that give your body life," Eden writes, along with her husband, psychologist David Feinstein. "These energies form the foundation of your health."
For instance, if your head aches or feels clouded, energy may be stagnating there, so do the "crown pull" to release it. The book gives a detailed description of how to do this and other energy-fixing exercises, and provides time estimates and illustrations for doing the maneuvers.
Eden, who has practiced energy medicine for more than 20 years and has given classes around the world, also relates stories about some of her clients, including those with cancer and chronic pain. While Eden says people can help themselves and others with the techniques in the book, she urges them to seek professional care as well.
Energy Medicine includes chapters on various energy systems, ranging from the meridians to the chakras, the basic grid to the strange flows, and chapters on how such systems relate to pain and illness. It also includes an appendix listing organizations and Internet sites for other forms of alternative medicine, like naturopathy and qigong. The book is a useful guide for people interested in this form of alternative healing. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From Publishers Weekly - Afflicted with myriad health problems, Eden approaches alternative health-care practice from the viewpoint of both practitioner and patient. As a massage therapist, she has more than 20 years of experience practicing and teaching the methods of applied kinesiology. This book is the culmination of her experiences, presenting techniques she developed through studying a variety of methods and working with her clients. Eden's work is based on the premise of an "energy body," made up of chakras, meridians, auras, strange flows and Celtic weaves. Healing involves balancing these energies for optimal physical health and well-being, pain management and vitality. With simple illustrations, Eden presents clear instructions for many do-it-yourself or with-a-partner techniques that involve tapping, tracing, smoothing and massaging, as well as more than 100 quick fixes for relieving common ailments and stresses. Unfortunately, these remedies are placed randomly throughout the text, making it inconvenient for reference. Nonetheless, Eden delivers an excellent, comprehensive guide to a unique combination of ancient Eastern and modern Western health-care techniques.

Hidden Nature: The Startling Insights of Viktor Schauberger by Alick Bartholomew, David Bellamy - Product Description - Viktor Schauberger, 1885-1958, was a radical pioneer of the study of the subtle energies in nature and the importance of living water in all natural processes. From unusually detailed observations of the natural world, he pioneered a completely new understanding of how nature works. He foresaw, and tried to warn against global waste and costly ecologial destruction of our age. Here are his insights in contemporary, accessible language.
His amazing discoveries--which address sick water, ailing forests, climate change and, above all, renewable energy--have dramatic implications for how we need to work with nature and its resources. Protesting the harmful effects of modern technology, Schauberger applied his theories to create prototypes for pollution-free energy machines.
About the Author - Alick Bartholomew read Geology and Geography at Cambridge, followed by graduate studies at the University of Chicago. He has commissioned and published many books on Viktor Schauberger and has been working with Schauberger material for over 20 years. He lives in Bath, England.
The subject of "sexuality" is basic to this work, and Reich shows clearly its importance for human life and its relevance in understanding the social problems of our time.
About the Author - Wilhelm Reich, a native of Austria, was born in 1897. His many other works include Listen, Little Man!, Character Analysis, and The Mass Psychology of Fascism. He died in 1957.

Hands of Light: A Guide to Healing Through the Human Energy Field by Barbara Brennan and Jos. A. Smith - Editorial Reviews - Amazon.com Review - Hands of Light: A Guide to Healing Through the Human Energy Field, by Barbara Ann Brennan, is a scientist's look at the field of bioenergetic healing, offering specific techniques towards expanding perceptual tools of healing, seeing auras, understanding psychodynamics and the human energy field, and spiritual healing. Trained as a physicist and psychotherapist, Brennan has spent the last 15 years studying the human energy field and working as a healer. Hands of Light goes beyond conventional, objective knowledge while retaining scientific clarity. It details a study of the human energy field and how it is intimately connected to a person's health and well being and contains essential information for anyone involved in healing and conscious health care, including people seeking to heal themselves. Science and spirituality may currently be at odds, but fortunately there will always be scientists who are spiritual seekers, and it is in the mingling of the two worlds where wisdom is born. --Jodie Buller
Review - "Barbara Brennan's work is mind-opening. Her concepts of the role disease plays and how healing is achieved certainly fit in with my experience."

Light Emerging: The Journey of Personal Healing by Barbara Brennan - Editorial Reviews - From Library Journal
Research physicist and founder of her own school, Brennan is a leading New Age healer. She provides here a useful introduction to the scientific background behind her laying-on-of-hands technique. Brennan offers an explanation of her healing perspective and its use in conjunction with medical therapy, the stages and importance of self-care, and healing relationships through auric field interaction and higher spiritual realities. She encourages taking personal responsibility for one's health through a holistic approach and consultation with nontraditional specialists as well as a physician. This self-help book may become a New Age classic. Highly recommended. Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc.
From Booklist - Brennan instructs on how to work with the "human energy field," which involves the seven chakras and the aura, to cure various physical and emotional problems. Readers searching for ways of healing that go beyond the orthodox will be best able to use this book and because Brennan's discussion is long and involved, at once fascinating and confusing, it may well attract the most devoted anyway. Despite a nod from Bernie Siegel, and evidence throughout that Brennan's methods can be effective, discussions of how people "grow cords" that obstruct relationships or why you should soak used jewelry in saltwater to destroy negative energy are sure to have skeptics shaking their heads. Brennan is not only a therapist and healer, but also a former research scientist for NASA, which would seem to lend her credibility. This title follows her popular Hands of Light (1988). --Jo Peer-Haas

Review - "Over the past three decades, an impressive body of scientific evidence has quietly emerged that points to stunning new insights into consciousness and itscapacity to mediate healing.

From the Author - The book and its contents might upset a few Reiki Masters for various reasons and for that they should not buy it. I have heard all the reasons they might have (I talk about them in the book) and I disagree with all of the reasons, respectfully. The book was not published for this group. It was published for Reiki (that can include Masters) and Non Reiki people seeking information and guidance. I believe there should not be any secrets in regards to Healing and Reiki.
Energy Anatomy by Caroline Myss (Audio CD) - Audiobook - Editorial Reviews - Amazon.com Review
Borrowing chakra principles and healing teachings from previous works, Dr. Caroline Myss forms a daily living plan that focuses on making the most of personal energy. Myss questions, chides, and inspires her audience--both audiobook listeners and the production's live studio gathering--to let go of blame, victimhood, and group thinking and take responsibility for their own lives. When she makes rueful fun of her own pre-enlightened state, it's to let her listeners know that they are not alone. Myss backs up her theories with both anecdotal and historical examples, and bolsters the production with a quiet certainty.

THE FOOD OF GODS by Jasmuheen - Product Description - The Food of Gods is Jasmuheen's 18th book on metaphysical matters and her third book in the Divine Nutrition series. It is not necessary to have read the previous books on this subject which cover her personal journey and the solution for world health and world hunger issues as "The Foods of Gods" takes the pranic nourishment discussion to another level and offers simple yet powerful tools to satiate all of our hungers. Jasmuheen writes: The most important difference with our focus with Divine Nutrition is that It has the ability to feed us on all levels and that we can still benefit from increasing Its flow through our bio-system even if we continue to choose to enjoy eating. Allowing this Divinely Nutritional stream to be increased in our system means that we can be fed emotionally, mentally and spiritually and as such the techniques and guidelines shared in this book, will benefit us all by freeing us from our current personal and global emotional, mental and spiritual states of anorexia.

It is a fascinating story of her personal journey into being physically sustained purely by Light. It also touches on physical immortality, spirituality and sexuality, new millennium relationships and mind mastery utilizing the powerful programming of Dimensional Biofield Science. Pioneering new yet ancient pathways, many are now exploring the option of neither being a meat eater, a vegetarian, a vegan, a fruitarian but rather a 'liquidarian' or an individual sustained and nourished purely by the Light of their own Divine nature. Formerly a 'state of being' reserved for, or attributed to, the Holy men, Saints or Sages of the East; the process described in this text offers a practical and spiritual alternative for those wishing to practically begin to embrace physical immortality, cease the aging process or simply 'live on Light'.

Life from Light: Is It Possible to Live Without Food? a Scientist Reports on His Experiences by Michael Werner - Editorial Review - '[What] can only be ignored with difficulty is the phenomenon itself, for it is crying out to be noticed. One wonders why mainstream science has paid so little attention to it...' - Harald Walach, Research Professor of Psychology, University of Northampton, and Director of the European Office of the Samueli Institute 'What Michael Werner wants is to demonstrate that the generally held view of the world being solely physical and solid cannot be the whole story' - Neue Luzerner Zeitung
Product Description - In 1898, Therese Neumann, a nun in Southern Germany, stopped eating and drinking. Apart from the wafer given at Mass, she did not eat again until her death thirty-five years later. Similar cases have been reported over the years--often holy men from the East--and have assumed mythical status. Nonetheless, such accounts remain obscure enough to be safely ignored by modern scientists.
Michael Werner presents a new challenge to skeptics. A fit family man in his fifties and with a doctorate in Chemistry, he is the managing director of a research institute in Switzerland. Unlike those who have achieved such a feat in the past, he is an ordinary man who lives a full and active life.
Werner has become an open challenge to all scientists: Test me, using all the scientific monitoring and data you wish. Here, he describes one such test, in which he was kept without food in a strictly monitored environment for ten days. Werner describes in detail how and why he gave up food in the first place and what his life is like without it. Life from Light also features reports from others who have attempted to follow this way of life, as well as supplementary material on possible scientific explanations of how one could "live on light."
Customer Review - As a spiritual scientist (yogi) for many years, I am delighted to see that this book has been made available on the U.S. market. Dr. Werner's hard science-minded approach to "living on light" is a beautiful contrast to the current small (and growing) group of more "spiritually-minded" light feeders - Jasmuheen, HRM, etc.
Dr. Werner takes a very objective look at the process and ability of the human body to receive nourishment from the "light" - i.e., prana, chi, ki, orgone, etc. With a Ph.D. in Chemistry, Dr. Werner has himself subsisted solely on prana (and water, tea, etc) since the year 2000. By sharing his experience with the world, Dr. Werner is trying to open the "materialistically-addicted" minds of fellow scientists so that they too can see that we humans are spiritual beings as well.
This book includes great information for the Western educated person as well as: transcript of a Dr. Werner lecture; Q&A w/ Dr. Werner; a 10-day hospital-run experiment in which Dr. Werner was kept in strict isolation and studied around the clock; personal experience from a dozen or so people that have also underwent the 21-day transition process; and a look into the future of science and spirituality.
For anyone interesting in the future of human evolution (that is here now), this is a great book to have. Dr. Werner's book is a perfect addition to the Jasumheen, HRM, Mantak Chia (parts of his work), and yogic books/videos that also teach these wonderous methods of living on light. --Lincoln Gergar "infinity_plus_one"
