3 Pathways to Effective Self Care

It’s that age old saying – put your own oxygen mask on before you help others. Self-care is just that – it’s looking after yourself so that you can better look after others and achieve all you want to in your life.

Self-care relates to supporting physical and emotional wellbeing as well as good mental health. As we all strive to keep up with the fast pace of life, the continually changing environments, increased workloads and full schedules, we need to understand the importance of looking after ourselves.

 

Self-care should not be another thing on the to-do list, it should be part of your everyday life. Good habits built-in to everyday situations and behaviours – a mindset that understands you are worthy of care.

It’s not selfish to put yourself first. In Pranic Healing we focus on giving service – this includes service to ourselves as well as others.

 

We want to delve into three effective pathways to self-care, which Pranic Healing can support.

1) Effectively managing stress and anxiety

 

Physical illness can be caused by a build up of stress and anxiety which negatively affects our energy body. When the body and mind is under stress, it cannot perform as well as it usually would, leaving us feeling depleted, tired and can even lower our immune system. It makes sense then, to do all we can to combat both the causes and effects of stress. Pranic Healing helps on all levels, from removing the negative effects of stress on the body, to in turn, promoting physical and emotional wellbeing.

 

2) Nurturing a calm mind through meditation

 

When we are running at a million miles an hour through life, distracted by technology and an always ‘on’ culture, our minds become overactive. This can lead to feelings of stress, worry and overwhelm – if this is you, it’s time to get off the carousel. Taking time to meditate is vital and the benefits are huge. Resting your mind promotes a sense of calm and inner peace, a chance to reconnect with yourself and the world around you in

a mindful way. If you would like to experience additional benefits of positivity, spiritual connection, clarity and prosperity, the Pranic Healing Meditation on Twin Hearts is worth trying. Give it a go and see how you feel afterwards.

 

3) Embracing good physical health habits

 

Our bodies are temples being the vehicle for the soul. It’s essential we look after ourselves physically and maintain good health, appreciating what we have been blessed with and nurturing it in all ways. If you do not already have some good, regular health habits in place, now is the time to take action. Even if you choose just one to begin with, it’s a great start. There are many habits to aspire to in your day to day life which contribute to optimum physical health – healthy eating, getting enough sleep, exercising regularly, getting out in nature.

Pranic Healing supports these so well, since it can help to build the strong body you need – there are even treatments to improve performance during exercise and energy levels.

Care for yourself to be able to care for others

Ever snapped at your partner after a difficult day at work? Or had an unnecessarily tetchy conversation with your boss because you’re too tired from keeping it all going between work and home?

It’s not uncommon for the stresses of daily life to catch up on us, and spill over into other areas of our lives, often impacting our relationships.

It is important to look after ourselves and maintain a regular selfcare regime to ensure this does not happen too often, thereby impacting our relationships.

Paying attention to our own needs and wellbeing helps keep stress, anxiety, and fatigue at bay. It ensures we are rested,have high energy, are mentally more alert and emotionally more centred. In this state, we can bring empathy and compassion to all our relationships, in every context. So, it is well worth it.

That said, self-care doesn’t have to be time-consuming or expensive. It tends to be more effective when indulged in via frequent short bursts rather than via infrequent and elaborate efforts, like an exotic getaway. For example: an outdoors walk, a nice cup of coffee solving the Sunday paper puzzle, or even some ‘me-time’ exploring a new activity or existing hobby all work very well. Anything that helps us connect with our own inner selves.

One of the most efficacious ways to do so is to meditate, and there is increasingly more research on its positive effects on our mental health, cognition, and even physical health. Often though, despite our best intentions, and meditation being a really rather simple and effective self-care habit, it falls by the wayside due to our busy lives.

If you find yourself in that situation, you might want to try the Meditation on Twin Hearts, which is easy to integrate into one’s life, being only twenty five minutes long. It is a guided practice that helps activate one’s heart, cleanse the energy body and leaves one feeling more relaxed and energised.

And if you enjoy the meditation, there are many other simple and effective techniques that are taught on the Level 1, Basic Pranic Healing course.

If you would like to learn these to be able to practice self-care and improve your relationships at work, home and with your significant other, check out the course schedule on this link.

Healthy New You, Family, and Friends

Are you ready to improve your physical and emotional well-being now we are emerging from lockdown?

How does a fresh, systematic and logical approach to good health sound as we start to pick up where we left off?

Would you like to learn a new life skill to benefit yourself and your family and friends?

When Master Choa Kok Sui brought the teachings of Pranic Healing – a non-touch energy healing modality – to the masses (it’s now in over 126 countries, his vision was to have a Pranic Healer in every household.

When we think about that inspirational goal in the wake of the pandemic, taking into account the pressure the NHS has endured – not just courtesy of Covid-19, but other ailments and diseases not to mention the impact on our mental health – it is a timely target in every sense.

Learning Pranic Healing is a truly life-changing experience when it comes to the health of the body and the mind. It’s empowering and comforting to know there is a toolbox at our disposal to treat and improve life’s physical aches and pains; from the smallest of niggles through to more complex issues.

Having the wherewithal to apply a simple-to-follow, step-by-step treatment to a heavy nosebleed, a tummy bug, or an ankle sprain is a huge positive and incredibly reassuring when you are a parent. Being able to treat a sore throat or a fever is a wonderful, time-saving benefit.

Each of these protocols is taught in the Level 1 Pranic Healing class, so that straightaway, students go home with practical skills that can be put into action.

Level 2 takes students deeper into the application of the teachings with a focus on chronic illness and severe ailments. It’s revolutionary in its approach, and, as with all of the Pranic Healing courses, it’s scientific and validation-based. Nothing is blindly taught so you get the chance to learn and practice with a very open mind.

None of which is to suggest Pranic Healing should ever replace traditional medicine or a professional diagnosis. Rather the two can work together beautifully. Referring back to the NHS overload situation, Pranic Healing gives us a very real opportunity to do something practical to help lessen the burden on the National Health Service – no matter which country we live in.

The strain on our state health systems is definitely a worldwide issue. But once we have learned the various Pranic Healing techniques we can immediately start to implement them to alleviate our family, friends and, of course, ourselves.

Lockdown’s conditions, which came as a shock to most of us, have definitely challenged our states of mind. However, when we are armed with easy-to-follow protocols (they are literally akin to following a recipe in a cookbook) to treat conditions such as anxiety, stress, depression, and grief, we can help ourselves and we can help others back to a happier and more natural disposition. That’s what a Level 3 course can do.

Pranic Psychotherapy is fascinating, and a real insight into the emotional root causes of many chronic physical conditions which might previously have been given a ‘Band-Aid’. When we combine our psychotherapy knowledge with the skills we have learned to alleviate physical conditions, the improvements are quite remarkable and we further understand the importance of purifying ourselves of the thousands of negative thoughts we have a day, ‘keeping the cup empty’.

So there we have it: three fabulous, groundbreaking courses, which, as a package, are transforming so many lives all over the planet.

There’s no better time to get started!

Follow your dreams to a happier, healthier you because for one thing, you deserve it, and for another, you’ll be in a position to help so many others.

Super Charge your spiritual growth

Would you like to make a difference in the lives of others in your community?

How can a single person truly serve the world and have a positive, life-changing impact on others?

Doesn’t being spiritual mean hours of meditation, cut off from civilization? Isn’t it impractical in the modern world, something that works only for a select few?

Whilst the answers to the first two questions are hopefully ‘yes’… and an emphatic ‘yes, they really can!’ it might surprise you to learn that spirituality is actually for everyone. It’s a continuous, non-negotiable way of life because whether we are consciously aware of its existence or not, we are all treading the spiritual path – just at many different stages depending on our very individual soul development. Something which is as unique as a fingerprint.

With the recent lockdown and the pandemic putting a temporary pause on our normal ways of life, it’s only natural that many of us will have spent time reflecting on the various aspects of our lives; that many of us are feeling organically drawn to the aspect of goodwill, charity, and helping others. Perhaps more so than we ever have been before.

All of this goes hand in hand with the Golden Age we are entering, as humanity as we move further away from the Dark Ages and into Aquarius.

And right now, as we are moving through the powerful full moons of April, May (which incorporates the important Wesak period), and June, there are many ways we can focus on boosting our spiritual growth. Indeed this is one of the best moments of the year to dedicate ourselves to doing so through world service since the effects are tremendously powerful.

These acts can be big and small (a large donation to a homeless charity or baking a cake for an eldery neighbour). They come in all shapes and sizes (volunteering for a food bank or running a free class to share your knowledge of a skill). The possibilities are endless, the sky’s the limit -making giving feel like fun in the process.

The emphasis is very much on evoking community spirit and reaching out to others outside of our homes and circles of families and friends, not to overlook being there for our nearest and dearest, of course. But these acts of regional, national and international goodwill all have one thing in common: they are heart-centred with no expectation of return.

However, those on the spiritual path, many great religions and new age thinkers know that in giving we receive… in fact, this is an important universal law that is necessary for our spiritual balance as individuals, as vital as the air we breathe. It’s no coincidence then that we are getting these impulses to be charitable and to practice loving kindness in as many ways as we can. They benefit the recipients as much as they benefit us. In turn, those who receive love and kindness are vibrationally raised and inspired by its blessing. And so the cycle begins.

One small gesture of help, one random act of kindness truly can travel across the globe, lifting humanity. Our loving thoughts when coupled with action are that powerful.

Now that Pranic Healing courses have restarted again across the UK and Ireland, why not put your curiosity and inspiration to the test?

Come along and find out more about the many opportunities for spiritual development within our supportive learning community!

Thriving through the Pandemic & Lockdown

Since the beginning of the year, Covid-19 has dominated the news and our lives, curbing free movement, claiming over a million lives across the world and impacting the economy to a large extent. As the numbers surge here in the UK, and we make our way through the second lockdown this year, we are bound to be concerned about our wellbeing, (physical, emotional, and mental), as well as our financial security in the near future. 

Unprecedented as this situation might be, it is possible to get through it, not just surviving it but thriving through it. Taking a spiritual lens could help us do just that – keeping perspective and having a proportionate and constructive response to the events unfolding in the world around us. Here is some food for thought on how one might approach this. 

Thinking of our life as one chapter of a longer story, the soul’s journey, is one way to develop this perspective. This lifetime is but one incarnation of the higher soul. Everything we say and do here contributes to the development of the overall story, so it is important to be thoughtful in our actions/responses, knowing it’s one sequence in a much longer journey can aid being present in the moment without being overwhelmed by it. 

Another helpful analogy from popular culture is thinking of any challenges we are faced with as an opportunity to ‘level up’ in the game of life. It is understood that we are born into this lifetime to learn from our experiences and progress in our soul’s journey. Coming at our life and the challenges we might be facing through the pandemic with this point of view makes it easier to respond with a ‘winning’ and ‘growth’ mindset, all the while keeping our calm and composure. 

But how do we even know we are a soul having a physical, human experience? Have you ever found yourself running or painting or so engrossed in an activity that you feel you have zoned out of your physical body, so to speak, and are propelled forward by higher energy? Well, then you sort of know what we are talking about.

To learn more about the soul journey, and how this understanding could help us thrive whilst staying firmly rooted in our day to day reality, Register for an upcoming course

Release stress and find harmony in your relationships

At this time of year, when the nights draw in and the weather turns colder many people experience physical ailments, aches and pains and fatigue and look for ways to help themselves. You may even find that strong emotions play out around these times as the seasons change to Autumn, there is less natural light, children are back at school and the demanding daily routines of life continue. Without realising it, people are often in a state of mental stress which can be the cause of some of these physical and emotional symptoms. 
It is not surprising that stress may be present more clearly than usual, given the current pandemic situation and that many of us are in close lockdown environments, and this can influence our closest loving relationships. Love can be an oasis in uncertain times, but cultivating it takes attention, sincerity, transparency, forgiveness, and gratitude. Given that you might be dealing with multiple stressors as a couple, it is important to speak together about how you can prioritise and manage them. Often these ups and downs can test the strength of your relationships, but they require effort on both sides to make a real and lasting difference. 
Relationships are an exchange of energy, in the form of thoughts and emotions. The quality of a relationship is influenced by our energetic output and the surrounding environment. Treating stress felt by both parties is vital for energy to be harmonised, purified, cleansed. 
When partners are stressed, they can be impatient, withdrawn, defensive and irritable. Negative energy can radiate from the individual. It’s not hard to see why these behaviours would affect your relationship negatively.  Often people bottle up or keep their stress to themselves, which makes it difficult for their partners to understand what they are going through and to provide the right support. Without some kind of intervention, the gap caused by this kind of situation can get wider and wider. 
If stress-energy is not released and removed it can create a negative cycle where partners “catch” each other’s stress. This happens because stress-energy is expelled by one and then caught by the other – when our partners are stressed, we become stressed. Think back to a disagreement that escalated quickly. You might have “caught” one another’s stress during the argument, which made you both feel even more frazzled. Couples get stuck in this negative cycle and may be too stressed to deal with the underlying issues.
Loving relationships can be healed, rejuvenated and harmonised through action on both parts to remove stress and induce calm. Finding a sense of peace, grounding and calming the mind can bring forth feelings of deep love, understanding, patience, wellbeing and forgiveness.
Couples could consider meditation, either together or separately to drive out negative stress-energy, reconnect with themselves and each other and bring in peace. Emotion-based meditations like Pranic Healing’s Twin Hearts Meditation work to open two energetic “hearts” and focus on bringing loving-kindness to the forefront of our mind and soul – it is hugely powerful in healing relationships and promoting harmony among partners.
There are of course many ways to reduce stress such as physical exercise, yoga, being in nature, getting good sleep, eating well, relaxation, breathing exercises and these are all worth doing in everyday life. Sometimes, however, negative stress-energy can get stuck and needs a little help to release. Pranic Healing can help remove this negative stress-energy and help restore a sense of inner peace and calm to both partners. Better still, couples can treat each other when qualified in Pranic Healing to reduce the number of stress energies between them and in the household. 
The things in life that we do not see affect us the most. You cannot see your thoughts or emotions but they have the biggest influence on your actions, how you live your life and others around you.

Health is Wealth

Would you like to find new and simple ways to improve your health and well-being? 

 The smallest positive steps can lead to giant leaps forward.

 Making informed daily changes can create a wave of momentum toward a life of vitality.

 Committing to self-care is an action that’s literally worth its weight in gold!

 2020 has been a year of rapid and unexpected change for us all. But when we consciously pause to regroup; when we make a decision to carpe diem the lessons the pandemic has offered us; when we embrace and accept the situation we are currently in, we start to realise that everything happens for us, and not to us. 

For 2020 has also been a year of tremendous spiritual growth. A time to put everything into perspective and to begin to pivot in a more wholesome direction – both mentally and physically.

 When it comes to our health, a busy lifestyle often means that we rarely take time out to analyse the various aspects of our lives, the positive and not so positive impacts that they may be having on our well-being. 

 At some point in the near future, life really will return to a ‘New Normal’, and, with Stress Awareness Day falling on November 4th, we all have another welcome reminder to rethink our physical and mental health right now, at a very specific point in time when our lives are less busy. It’s no secret that when left unchecked, large amounts of stress can sometimes manifest as physical conditions. Thus a healthy mind is essential for a healthy body. 

 Pranic Healing is not only a fabulous tool when it comes to implementing positive changes to our well-being, it is also one of the most groundbreaking healing modalities in the world. Level 1, Advanced, and Psychotherapy Courses are regularly taking place again all over the UK and Ireland (for details on those, please see the bottom of this blog post) with self-distancing measures in place so that students can benefit from the wisdom of Master Choa Kok Sui – the founder of modern Pranic Healing, whose vision was for each and every household to include a Pranic Healer.

 From learning simple breathing exercises to understanding the principles behind the very unique, and scientifically-validated Twin Hearts meditation (experiencing its calming effects for yourself), through to learning numerous protocols to carry out healings on yourself, your family, and your friends… enrolling on a Pranic Healing course is a fast and effective way to invest in your health.

Hopelessness to Hopefulness

Journeying through life can sometimes feel like participating in a challenging assault course, navigating the ‘ups’ and ‘downs’ – within us, or on a global level. Uncertainty can be found everywhere eg television, newspapers, social media, often clouding our thoughts and contributing to a sense of fear, emotional stress and anxiety. If not corrected, over time these overwhelming feelings can give us a sense of hopelessness. 

The recent lockdown has been a testing time for many, increasing these negative feelings of uncertainty and creating overwhelming energy of hopelessness.  It’s fascinating how something we can’t see can affect us so much. 

Worry or Fear energy is something we create energetically with our thoughts, and just like a virus, we can’t see it. We can easily get drawn into the emotions of others and then start to think, speak and act similarly – even if practising social distancing! 

Repetitive thinking of negative emotions such as fear can weaken the immune system, which can then attract germs and viruses. 

So how can we gain control of our mental health, increase our immune system and gain hope and happiness in challenging times?  

How can we shift from hopelessness to hopefulness?

Having clarity is the key to transforming challenging times into a time of opportunity.  By clearing these thoughts and emotions more inner peace and calm is achieved. The good news is by following these simple steps there is hope:

  • Pranic Healing

Practical, easy to use techniques taught in Pranic Healing are perfectly suited to the current climate of social distancing as they are ‘non-touch’.  Healing can be received distantly as it works on one of the many natural laws. It has a cookbook approach to healing, with a ‘recipe’ for every possible ailment. 

The physical body and immune system can be strengthened and the healing complements traditional medicine. There are many on-line Pranic Healing Therapists who offer sessions. You can further your well being by attending the up-coming classes and learning the techniques for yourself. 

  • Breathing

There are various specific, ancient, breathing techniques taught in Pranic Healing which have been tested and validated over many years. These help to flush out the unhelpful energies and recharge the mind and body. There is tremendous power and stillness in the gap of the inhalation and exhalation. Breathing has many benefits on a physical level, such as reducing blood pressure and increasing oxygenated blood around the body.

  • Meditation

The Meditation on Twin Hearts in an ancient advanced meditation technique. It has a powerful flushing effect on the system of negative thoughts and emotions.

The meditation is practised globally with thousands of glowing testimonials. Research studies show many positive factors such as a reduction in anxiety, an increase in positive emotions, an improved sense of hopefulness and happiness.

During challenging times we are being stretched to look at ways to adapt, to survive and therefore thrive!  Visit a Pranic Healing Therapist, participate in an online Meditation event or Live Stream and use this time to go within, reflect and find the gift of opportunity to enhance your life in all areas.

Men’s Health Day Special

It’s well known that men tend to be solution-focused and like to fix things. They like to take objects apart just to see how they go back together.

Practical, capable, problem solving is highly respected attributes. The ability to focus on a task and see it through to successful completion is an indispensable quality. 

Whilst men have the mindset to fix things, unfortunately, many men of all ages can really struggle when it comes to ‘mending’ their own minds. 

Recent statistics indicate a worrying trend. According to Movember, globally, every minute a man dies by suicide. 

In the UK, 75% of suicide cases are male.

Many charities are addressing the issues men face by looking at mental health through a male lens focusing on prevention, early intervention and health promotion. They are working towards a world where men take action to be mentally well and supported by those around them.

Many men deal with stress by turning to a pint with a mate, releasing pent up emotions at a football match or taking themselves off for a long run or bike ride. 

In moderation, these helpful coping strategies are like release valves but deep down they don’t necessarily get to the underlying causes of the mental health condition. Left unattended, too much pressure and stress on the mind can lead to psychological and often physical ailments.

The mind can be compared to a computer processing data. The data of the mind being unhelpful thoughts and emotions. Left unattended with too many programmes running a computer can crash. 

The mind is no different if it becomes overloaded and weighed down with worries, doubts, fears and concerns it can crash bringing down the physical body with it. Health, relationships and financial problems can all add to the mental burden.

Once a computer is cleaned up, de-fragged and a rebooted the restoration process can begin – the same applies to the mind.

So what tools can men use to help clear the mind and propel themselves to a happier, healthier place?

By learning simply to use practical techniques, men can learn to take charge of their wellness and become successful at well being.  

Pranic Healing is a non-touch energy-based system which includes specific breathing techniques, special exercises, advanced meditation, pranic treatments and much more.

Used globally in over 126 countries this self-development approach to physical, emotional and mental health is helping men transform their lives on a daily basis.

Mind and Mental Health

 

Talking Mental Health

How many times does someone ask you how you feel and your reply hides the way you are feeling emotionally?
If you feel low emotionally this will affect your physical wellbeing. What can start with a little stress can lead to a mild headache, which if not addressed can lead to long term migraines which have may need to be medically supervised.
This is just one of many examples of when a physical condition arises from unregulated, unhelpful emotions.

Putting mental health first
Do you prioritise physical ailments over emotional ones even when the underlying emotional condition normally arises first?
Society has come a long way in the last 10 years in raising awareness around psychological and mental health but the stigma which is often associated with them still remains. There is still a way to go. Statistically, men find it harder to talk about how they are feeling emotionally.

To date 1 in 8 men has undisclosed mental health problems. Historically, society has created an unrealistic expectation for men to be emotionally strong and not show or address their feelings. This has had an adverse effect.
In the UK, the prison population is mostly men, with many of these being diagnosed with mental health illnesses.
In 2017, 75% of suicide cases were male. Suicide represents the largest cause of death for men under 50.

Reaching out

Great strides are being made to help both sexes suffering mental ill-health. The UK’s Heads Together Campaign, the Mental Health Foundation and Mental Health First aid courses are becoming more widely known as a source of support, signposting people towards solutions.

The Path to Recovery

 

Like physical illness, mental ill-health needs to be addressed as soon as possible so a person can recover quickly, giving them the best chance of having a good life. With medical professionals under pressure and long waiting lists, people are choosing to look for other ways to ease their situation.

Pranic Healing can be very beneficial to enhance the speed of recovery both physically and emotionally.

There are protocols to help all manner of conditions. Whilst a person is waiting for a referral and also for those already receiving care as it very much complements orthodox medicine.

As well as the treatment a Pranic therapist will help the patient by equipping them with self-care tools and techniques including specific breathing exercises and meditation practices.

Changing Lives

Changing lives on a daily basis, Pranic Healing is helping to alleviate the fog of mental health. Symptoms are being relieved through an effective system of treatments and self-care practices. With such success, many people are taking the courses and learning for themselves how to heal and enhance their lives and the lives of those around them.
