I am open to a lot of things, but at the same time I am skeptic.
Two years ago I attended a Pranic Healing and meditation session to see what it was all about. Pranic healing is similar to Reiki, but slightly different in that it uses the auric energy field around the body and chakras, and cleanses the energy fields/auras in order to help the physical body to heal. There is no touch involed. (View this video that explains more.)
I’d been having some awful back pain that chiropractors and massage therapists were not helping. It had been going on for weeks, and I was feeling pretty desperate. When I saw an ad in a Natural Awakenings Magazine that there were free healing sessions being given in my area, I thought what have I got to lose? It can’t hurt to try it out. So I went to my very first Pranic Healing lecture and session.
There was a small group of people – some healers, some just like myself. The lecturer was an actual doctor – a dermatologist – who explained that because of her scientific background, she was very skeptical of any type of alternative medicine. She explained more about how Pranic Healing works. Then the group meditated to help calm and focus everyone. I got super lucky and had the doctor herself work on me.
At first I didn’t think anything was happening. I’d had a knife-stabbing pain in my back, and the chair I was sitting in didn’t help. After about 10 minutes or so, I started to feel lighter, and the right side of my body was relaxed. The left side was still tightened up, however. When the session was over, I was satisfied with the result that at least half of my body felt good and overall. She told me that sometimes it takes a day or so to take effect (to “sink in”), and sometimes it takes more than one session.
On my way home, I noticed that I felt much better than I had when I was on my way to the session – overall, I was less tired and more energetic. That night I went to bed full of energy. Within hours, my entire spine seemed to loosen up and pop and crack all the way up. It was amazing! I hadn’t felt good in weeks. And even though I hadn’t slept much that night, I didn’t feel very tired the next day. Compared to the day prior to attending Pranic Healing, I felt about 80% better.
Pranic Healing did something for me that nothing else could. I started attending weekly meditation and healing sessions, and I could see a complete change in myself within two months. I was happier, more energetic, calmer, and from what I am told, more pleasant to be around.
There are many free Pranic Healing sessions around the country, so if you are in chronic pain, you might want to try it out. For more information on Pranic Healing, visit: http://www.pranichealingusa.com.
Goldstone fascinated me as a child. I was about five years old when someone had given me a child-size thick gold-tone bracelet that clipped over my wrist. In the center was a beautiful goldstone. The bracelet made me feel special, like an Egyptian goddess. I treasured that bracelet for years, but sold it on eBay a few years ago when I realized I couldn’t possibly wear it anymore.
It wasn’t until recently I learned that goldstone isn’t a gemstone at all, even though many people claim it to be. Often referred to as aventurine glass, goldstone was invented in the seventeenth century by the Miotti family of Venice. There are also claims that monks accidentally discovered the process, but there is no documented evidence of that.
The stone is made from glass with reflective sparkly particles, such as copper, cobalt (blue), and manganese (purple). Each element produces different colors. Being that goldstone is manmade, does it give it any less qualities of healing or metaphysical value?
There are claims that copper goldstone has healing and energy properties, blue goldstone helps communication, and purple helps to open psychic awareness. They are used in meditation, healing, and charms.
Copper is known for its healing and protection properties. Since copper is a conductor, it can be used in energy charms. Cobalt is also said to have healing properties, and its blue color is said to help in removing creative blocks and aid in psychic abilities. Manganese is claimed to have healing properties as well, and is said to have shielding properties in protection charms.
