Meditation Series – Chapter 2: Pranic Healing
My next experience of Meditation was with ‘Pranic Healing’. After the break-up, my depression was getting worse day by day. And I was not yet ready for a psychologist (not a favorite option for conceited fools). I started the twin-heart meditation from Pranic Healing and went for a few healing sessions, as well. It was helpful but the impact was slow. And also it was helping me only when I was regular with the meditation. This is a fact about meditation – It is not like once you do a few sessions you have got armor for life. Sorry, but it is not that easy. You have to make these techniques a part of your day-to-day life, and rebuild the armor every single day.
My heart chakra was out of control, as was evident to many energy practitioners. With this new mediation, my depression was only controlled, not cured. My health was getting better, but once again I was not able to continue a daily schedule of Meditation. I have never been a consistent person and maintaining a daily schedule about anything has never been easy. With job it was even more difficult, especially because I am not an early riser. I know it is foolish, to not do something when your whole life depends on it. And you have yourself experienced its benefits. Well, I don’t know what to say except that I did try many times. 😀
Meanwhile, I went to a psychologist and got a 6 months’ treatment for my depression. It seems like a permanent fix, I was never again depressed for more than a day or 2. Days or weeks of depression are common, but if it is months or years then better refer to a psychologist. We all have bad days but they should pass on. If it is lasting for a long time, then that means we have messed up our internal chemistry. It is always better to take medication to resolve it and get back to our lives.
After the medication, life was as usual. I would do a meditation session once in a blue moon, try some Youtube videos for guided mediation and live my normal life. By then I had already realized that Meditation is not only an extra layer of protection but also makes life beautiful. It is not only helpful in dealing with serious stress or depression-related episodes but also with daily problems of life. Our regular lifestyle is such, that a lot of irritation and frustration creeps in. We tend to make decisions based on our mood. Our anger levels are always short-circuited. And patience is never there when needed. So my next chapter of Meditation was bound to be written.
But before that, let me tell you that my experience with Pranic Healing was also good. I got a deeper experiential understanding of energy and my heart chakra got strengthened. In layman’s terms, I was enjoying life more and had become a positive happy person, which is my basic self. Also, it seems to me, that this mediation opened the way towards psychological treatment. I never entertained the thought before of visiting a psychologist.
So all those who would like to pursue the path of Pranic healing, I do recommend it. In my case, after a short time, I realized that I do not want to go for guided mediation and I also felt that this is not what I was looking for.
Let me know in the comments if you have also tried Pranic Healing or thinking about it.
An excerpt on Pranic Healing: Pranic Healing is a system of natural healing techniques that uses prana to treat illness. It is a synthesis of ancient, esoteric healing methods that have been rediscovered, researched, and tested by the founder of Modern Pranic Healing, Grand Master Choa Kok Sui. Meditation on Twin Hearts works on the physical, mental, and spiritual levels to open the heart chakra (the emotional heart) and the crown chakra (the spiritual heart), thereby enabling you to draw down a great amount of high-quality divine energy into the crown. The prana that this meditation produces greatly promotes physical and mental health as well as inner illumination.
