Who are we?
When we say “I am hungry, I am thirsty, I am hurt or I am depressed“, do we know who this “I” is? How many of us have ever pondered on this?
The “I’ is beyond the physical body that we relate to. We are all made of energy and matter combined. A synthesis of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies, as one entity.
Pranic® healing is an energy science system that practically and step by step takes one to the understanding of who we really are….spiritual beings, having a physical experience.
Let’s take an example to try to understand the subject of who we really are –
A mother is seriously unwell (to the point of being bed ridden). She suddenly sees her child falling and hurting himself, at which point she experiences a sudden surge of limitless power and energy, and jumps to the child’s rescue, forgetting all her pain.
Where does that inherent strength come from?
It comes from the deep understanding that we are much more than just physical beings. We are not the body, neither are we the emotions or the thoughts, we are the SOUL. The soul is the driver of our lives, and when we have a deeper understanding of this we are able to disassociate from physical pain, emotional and mental trauma and harness the powerful energies of the soul to dispel all the discomfort in our body.
In the mother’s case, this happens automatically (without her even realizing it) when her very own offspring is in danger. She unknowingly and for those fleeting seconds taps into that understanding that we are limitless beings, which happens when one experiences blinding selfless love and concern for another being.
How can one harness this infinite source of power and call upon it as and when required?
This requires one to embark on a continuous self-improvement journey wherein we learn how to connect with our ‘source’. The source is simply our higher self or our ‘soul’ which is the seed or spark which ignites all humans. Our higher self is eternal, all-pervading, and has access to infinite power which is abundantly available in the universe.
By practicing meditation, purifying our thoughts, words, and deeds, and surrounding ourselves with positive energies, we are making our connection to the ‘source’ stronger and stronger. If we continue this for a significant period, we will surely be able to realize and answer – “Who are we?”
