The Pranic Healing is a technique that consists on the exploration of the body energy (as diagnose) and the removal of energy when there is an excess or charging when there is defficiency. Since the Basic Pranic Healing, the Advanced Pranic Healing and the Distant Pranic Helaing were developed as well as the Pranic Healing with Crystals, the Psychic Self-defense and Prosperity Techniques. It is a fast and efficient method to treat psychological, emotional and spiritual anomalies. The Pranic Healing is an old science and art that was systematized by the Master Choa Kok Sui, borned in China and settled in the Philipines. It was introuced in Brazil in 1992. See the courses provided in Buzios where certificates of the Institute of Inner Studies will be handed in (Manila – Philipines), signed by the Master Chao Kok Sui and Monica Abad (Graduated as instructor in Basic Pranic Healing).
Cura Prânica in the distance:
The mechanism of the Pranic Healing in the Distance is similar to the telephone one. The practising and the patient are connected because their ethereal bodies are part of the ethereal body of the earth. When the practising focus his attention on the patient, he can remove the sick etheral matter and can project the prana (vital energy) to the patient, "energy follows thoughts". This Pranic Healing is similar to the ones parcticed near the patient, with the only difference that in the Distant Healing the psychic faculty of the practising must be developed and sharpen even more, to have more precision.
Flores de Bach.
Bach Flowers work removing old and negative patterns, giving the patient new and positive ones. Flowers should be prepared in the hour and if possible charged with energy with the Pranic Healing.
