Currently undergoing clinical trials within the NHS, Pranic Healing is one of the worlds fastest growing and most effective energy healing modalities, combining ancient teaching techniques with modern science.
Below Pranic Therapist Carina von Greyerz Beck explains & shares information & proven techniques to help both parent and teens feel energised and calm on a daily basis.
We are not always aware of what thoughts and emotions we are emanating and what our children are absorbing, so making sure that we as parents are leading by example by taking care of our own stress levels is the biggest gift we can give them.
In order to have mental clarity and be able to take in information, the mind needs to be decluttered of noise. Whether it’s the barrage of information externally from media or the self sabotaging noise and chatter of the inner mind, our mind never stops processing with 20,000 to 80,000 thoughts a day so its no wonder our children feel overwhelmed. We will share some incredibly helpful techniques that are scientific in approach ensuring that our children stay focused, energised and importantly calm!
As babies we are born breathing beautifully as nature intended with the belly expanding with every full inhalation but then as time goes by and stress and tensions build up, the diaphragm constricts and we only use the top portion of our lungs causing many issues. By learning abdominal breathing also known as diaphragmatic breathing, it stimulates the vagus nerve which then activates the parasympathetic nervous system, calming down the fight or flight response. In this area, at the hollow of our ribs is also where we have a large energy centre called the Solar Plexus which tends to be where we store many of our negative emotions. This important energy centre provides Prana and vitality to our stomach and in fact all of our internal organs and so physical conditions may arise due to the congestion and blockage in this area.
Deep abdominal breathing is a simple yet extremely beneficial practice which improves our physical condition, calms the emotions, promotes inner peace and enhances mental clarity. Add some calming music to this very simple 5 minute daily practice and make it a non negotiable routine.
Instructions: Sit comfortably, place your hand on your tummy and inhale slowly through your nose for the count of 6, holding your breath for 3 and exhaling through your nose for the count of 6, holding your breath for 3. Repeat for 12 cycles.
LAVENDER SALT BATHS
During times of stress and anxiety, a healing sea salt and lavender oil bath has a cleansing effect on the mind and body. We all know that swimming in the sea has always been a restorative healing practice, but we can’t always get access to a beach on a regular basis, so create the effect in your own home.
Instructions: Use 1kg of Sea salt (not Epsom salt as this has different properties) & 15 drops of lavender oil. Relax and submerge yourself in the bath for no longer than 20 minutes making sure to shower off afterwards.
SUPER BRAIN YOGA
This practice is based on ear acupuncture points relating to the brain and energy movement in the body. Studies have shown that this simple and quick exercise moves energy sitting in the lower body up to the brain whilst also balancing the left and right hemispheres of the brain, improving concentration, focus and intelligence. In addition to strengthening general cognitive performance, this practice is used as a method to help people with neurodevelopment disorders such as ADHD and autism. People who have practiced this very quick and simple technique consistently have seen a difference within a few months.
First press your tongue on the roof of the mouth.
Next, with your left hand pinch your right earlobe, with the thumb facing at the front.
With your right hand pinch your left earlobe, with your thumb facing at the front (it is very important that the right arm is on top of the left as the other way has opposite effect).
Squat down breathing in through your nose
Stand back up breathing out through your nose
Repeat 14 times morning and evening. Look it up on google for more information.
Science has already proven that Meditation has powerful benefits on our mental health. Meditation is a great way to overcome suffering, remove stress, improve awareness and create a sense of well-being. These practices are ideal to start implementing when our children are young so it becomes second nature to sit calmly and quietly cultivating a feeling of peace and stillness. The nourishment from a regular meditation practice is life changing. As the Dalai Lama said “If every 8 year old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation”.
