And the Lives of Others…
Last month I was lucky enough to attend the most goosebump inducing course I think I have ever been on: Pranic Healing Level 1, which took place locally at the O’Callaghan Eliott hotel in Gibraltar, facilitated by the UK Director of Pranic Healing, the legendary Les Flitcroft.
Now anyone who knows me, knows I’m more than a little open-minded; perhaps that’s a given when you’ve grown up in a place overlooked by Glastonbury’s emblematic Tor. But in truth, Pranic Healing is for everybody, even – and especially – the skeptics.
It is as spiritual as it is scientific.
Broken down from our largest to smallest components, everything within us (and around us) is energy, after all. And what Pranic Healing does in its simplest form, is cleanse the body of negative (diseased) energy, replacing it with positive (life-giving) energy, referred to as prana. This is carried out through the major and minor chakras. And in Pranic Healing, there are an extensive 11 chakras, as well as over two hundred mini chakras. This makes it super effective as an alternative form of healing.
But then it’s the body which does the true work, for it has an innate ability to re-programme itself, to correct any chemical imbalances. It’s quite a beautiful design.
To see a practitioner carry the process out, you are, frankly, reminded of a scene from The Bible, with Jesus healing the sick. But in truth, many religions have hinted that we all have access to this healing energy – not just a chosen few. This is certainly not to downplay the vital role of traditional medicine, however, even after a Level 1 course, the skills obtained are life-changing enough that you will almost certainly find yourself running off to the GP’s surgery a little less. And that’s just for starters.
This morning for example, I woke with a trapped nerve in my upper back. Half an hour after giving myself a PH treatment, I am not only sat bolt upright, but the pain is barely on my radar!
We practiced techniques for so many conditions during the two days, exhaustively, and to the point that we all had the ability and confidence to start using our newfound skills on friends and family – even ourselves, the moment the course was over.
–Tiredness – we can alleviate it BIG time.
– Fever – we learnt how to bring it down quickly and effectively, which is particularly empowering when we find ourselves in a state of meltdown over our children!
– Period Pains – with simple PH techniques, these can be a thing of the past.
– Coughs and colds – the easy-to-learn processes to treat these all too common ailments can speed up the body’s recovery system massively, meaning those lingering winter’s sniffles and splutterings are no more.
–Muscular and skeletal pain – can be significantly reduced, in some cases even remedied completely.
I could go on!
The course also covered breathing techniques to ensure we are maximising our own intake of prana as healers, as well as a very unique “Twin Hearts meditation” which opens up our chakras in the most beneficial order possible, whilst also uplifting the whole of planet Earth.
Sounds a bit woo-woo, the latter?
Only until you remember we are all connected; this is just quantum physics in action. Just like electricity or gravity, not everything needs to be tangible to work!
But as with any kind of declaration, the proof is in the sticky toffee pudding (excuse the cliche but I am a novelist with a sweet tooth, who will sneak confection into everything!) And that leads me on to the most amazing aspect of the course: distant healing.
I’d had the privilege of meeting Les Flitcroft the previous summer, during a magazine interview… and witnessed him carry out a distant treatment on my daughter for her peanut allergy. That was mind blowing enough in itself, but when days later she complained of sore taste buds, working from the back to the front of her tongue, even my rational mind knew there was no way this could be a coincidence, that her body was self-correcting. *As a side note, always get a controlled medical test carried out with your GP/allergist/hospital before giving your child a food they have previously been very allergic to!*
I had also then witnessed a most significant change in my daughter’s behavior further to a course of treatments for “Attachment Difficulty” via Namarta Gulraj, the practitioner for Prana Wellness Gibraltar. The positive impact this has had on not just my daughter, but the whole family, has been quite magical.
But the perfect guinea pig for me as a healer, and even more so as a distant healer, when it came to my own voluntary groupies, was (and still is) my mum. She had had a bad back for as long as I could remember, and her and dad were coming to stay with us for a week’s holiday here in Spain just days after the course, so what better opportunity?
I kid you not, after I’d carried out just one healing session on her – that’s little me, the amateur! – her exact words were “I feel as if somebody has just pegged me out on a washing line.’ Believe me, this is a very good thing, Mum had felt hunched over for quite some time after being told she had some kind of curvature of the spine. I have followed this up with two very specific treatments a week, and not only is she able to sleep easier at night, but the pain has really dissipated into something more like a small niggle… all the while she is still upright. So the very unique process used for distant healing really does work… even after Level 1. I was gobsmacked.
Since then I have gone on to give myself some nice immunity boosting “sweeps” which really do act like rocket fuel in terms of increased energy, and I’ve treated myself for a skin condition, taking the itch away within minutes. So liberating not having to reach for soothing creams like I usually would…
I have successfully helped my son, too, with his somewhat different skin condition: molluscum contagiosum, a common condition in young children whose sweat glands can take time to develop. By using a very simple technique, I have witnessed with my own two eyes how speedily the blisters have dried up. Just incredible.
I have treated my daughter for a minor outbreak of eczema on her face: the next day it was gone.
I have distantly healed the sore aching shoulders of a friend; a friend who doesn’t mince her words! She was surprised, even if she is also open-minded as a qualified Reiki practitioner.
I have successfully alleviated my husband’s cough. He begged to differ initially, but there was no doubt about it: after just 1 treatment, the following morning, his coughing fit was practically half as loud and eventful as the previous morning’s. A couple of days later, it had gone completely.
I have helped alleviate the pain in my dad’s leg. He wouldn’t admit it… but after a long walk, he would normally feel some discomfort, and mum and I knew the treatment had worked when there was a distinct lack of the usual complaints, or requests for bench breaks!
At this point, it’s important to say that the more open and receptive your patients are, the more they will benefit!
I have also given another friend an energy boost to relieve her tiredness, another distant healing treatment, which saw her feeling so full of life that she was cleaning her house from top to toe, and then working on her novel, all in one day.
I am in awe of the things I have learned, eager to take things to at least the next 2 levels with the Colour Prana and Behavioural courses, that are Levels 2 and 3. I’m equally excited to help others as the weeks and months roll on. After all, you’ve got to use it, or you lose it.
And I leave you with this quote from THE Tony Robbins, which I hope will convince you to give this amazing healing a try, if you yourself get the opportunity, as I did:
“My work involves a great deal of travelling and a very intense schedule. After being introduced to Les Flitcroft, Senior Pranic Healer from the Institute of Pranic Healing UK & Ireland, he has helped me physically, emotionally & mentally; enhancing my performance and has helped me to work at my optimum levels that I have always been accustomed to.
I have found a genuine soul with an incredible talent to heal and enrich people’s lives.”
