All that is power in the
Universe , manifesting as force or attraction - is but different manifestation of
that Unitary power which the Vedists callPrana. Using this Vital Energy to heal
is called Pranic Therapy. This article is a continuation of the earlier article
Pranic Therapy Part VI. A
digression to other forms of Therapy - Gem Therapy & Medical Astrology
Each gemstone radiates a corresponding Cosmic Color which
are as follows;
Planet Cosmic Colour Primary Gem Number
Sun Red Ruby One
Moon Orange Pearl Two
Jupiter Light Blue Yellow Three
The Human Electro-magnetic Field ( also known as the Auric Field )has been proved by Kirlian Photography. The part of the body afflicted bydisease will be darkened and a gem therapist gives the much neededcosmic color ( gemstone ) to redeem the area afflicted by disease.
Medical Astrology & Pranic Therapy
In the Ayurvedic Model, the planets are classified thus
Moon Vata & Kapha
Mercury Pitta, Vata & Kapha
Venus Vata & Kapha
The Seven planets correspond to Seven gross elements ( dhatus) thus
Mars Bone Marrow
Venus Seminal Energy
Medical Astrology postulates that a weak planet can bestow disease.If the sixth house is afflicted, digestive tract disorders are indicated
If the fourth house is afflicted, it clearly means affliction to the heart
( as the heart is the 4th house by correspondence).
Here are the correspondences between the 7 Deadly Sins & the Seven planets
Jupiter - Avarice
Venus - Lust
Mars - Anger
Saturn - Pride
Moon - Jealousy
Mercury - Sloth
Sun - Covetousness
Every man is born with a major flaw. By knowing which planet is afflicted,
the astrologer can discern the Deadly Sin the native is afficted with. If
Jupiter is weak, Avarice will be high in him. If Mars, anger and if Venus,
lust etc. To overcome that vice, intense prayer and meditation is required
and all vices can only be overcome by Grace Divine .
Medical Astrology's perspective about the 12 Houses of the Zodiac
Ist House Head
2nd House Face
Third House Throat
Fourth House Heart
Fifth House Place beneath the heart
Sixth House Stomach
Seventh House Generative Organ
Eighth House Upper Thigh
Ninth House Thigh
Tenth House Knee
Eleventh House Calf
Twelfth House Feet
Affliction to any house indicates affliction to the correspondingpart of the body. Rahu - or any other malefic - in the sixth isindicative of stomach trouble & ulceration. Fourth house afflictionmeans that the heart is afflicted and first house affliction means thatthe head is afflicted.Medical Astrology can therefore point to disease and using the yogictechnique of Pranic Therapy, the disease can be healed.
Shift of Stand From Head to Heart
Scientific research have accepted "psycho-neuro-immunology - theimpact of mind on the immune system. "Cardiac-neuro-immunology"is also accepted - ( the impact of heart on the immune system ). TheBoth metaphorically and anatomically the centre of our action is the heart. Our heart is 60 times stronger as an electrical generatorcompared to the brain. The heart is the big brother & the brain is
the little brother. As all activities of the mind-body pivot around thecentral powerhouse - our heart, we have two different existences,head-centred & heart-centred. The new science of Cardio-neuro-
immunology postulates that Self-healing requires a cardiocentricattention.We are judgemental if we live with our head-centred scriptOn the other hand, if we adopt a heart-centred way of living, we are
incapable of generating any enemy and Love Divine will cure us.
The Internal Healing Power of the body
The human body is remarkable in its own resilience or healing power.
The fiercely competitive world, the tension associated with job & businessand an achievement oriented culture keeps our stress arousal levelabnormally high. This releases chemicals ( toxins ) such as cortisol,adrenalin & noradrenaline leading to suppression of the immune systemand weakening of the body's healing power. We have to get away from thisfrenzy & vigilance for effectuating healing. This diversion from a stressaroused state is called altered state. In order to heal better, we should be
able to enter into the altered state.
An altered state is a state different form the normal awakened state.We have three relative states of Consciousness - normal awakened state( Jagrat ), dreaming state ( Swapna ) & Deep Sleep ( Sushupthi).Scientifically REM ( rapid eye movement ) is the Dreaming State and non-REM ( non-rapid eye movement ) is the Deep Sleep state. Thereis a higher state which is called the meditative state. It is our commonintuitive experience & logic that restful sleep is conducive to healingThe interface of entering into sleep is called hypnagogic state .Exitingfrom sleep is called hypnapompic state. The twilight state has alphatheta brain waves compared to beta waves during awakened state.The meditative state is the same as the twilight state,except that weenter it and exit from it by choice. The meditative state allows our mindand body to talk to each other. ( Normal brain activity is marked by Betawaves of 25 cycles per second where meditative state is characterisedby alpha waves of 8.5 cycles per second ).In summary, our stressful life-style does not allow us to enter the alteredstate of sleep, daydream & meditation, to heal by proper body-mindcommunication and so we have to take refuge in Yoga to effectuate healing.
Opening the System to Divine Shakti or the Cosmic Prana
Scientifically, behind the evolution of the species ( material evolution ),there is an evolution of Consciousness ( spiritual evolution). Our lifehas only a symbolic value in the sense that it is good and necessary as a Becoming; and all Becoming has Being as its goal & fulfillmentand God is the only Being.
Those who find it difficult to follow these techniques can open themselvesto the source of Divine Power through intense prayer. In the Geetha,the Lord promises that He takes care of the material welfare of thedevotee who depend on Him solely. He also gives the Solemn Assurance- that by giving up in heart and soul to him, the devotee will overcome alld ifficulties by Grace Divine. He also gives the Word of Refuge ( Abhaya Vachana ) that His devotee shall never perish. By cultivating an attitude of trust & absolute self-surrender, we can open ourselves to Cosmic Prana, Absolute self-reliance has been defined as Reliance on the Absolute Self. When such a divine attitude becomes deeply ingrained in our psyche, we find that everything in Nature becoming favorable to us and the process of healing takes place in our psychophysical system. Thousands of people all over the world have found health, prosperity and peace through yogic methods. Prayer overcomes the resistance of the ego &opens the chambers of the unconscious to the inflow of Divine Shakti or Cosmic Prana. For this, however, prayer must be done with intensity, sincerity & perseverance. Only through this kind of prayer can we know how Pranic Healing takes place.
The Grace always grants the
sincere prayers !
All glory to the All-Merciful, the All-Compassionate!
How strange is Thy Grace !
