All that is power in the Universe , manifesting as force or attraction - isbut different manifestation of that Unitary power which the Vedists call Prana. Using this Vital Energy to heal is called Pranic Therapy.

The Human Electro-magnetic Field ( also known as the Auric Field )has been proved by Kirlian Photography. The part of the body afflicted bydisease will be darkened and a gem therapist gives the much neededcosmic color ( gemstone ) to redeem the area afflicted by disease.

Medical Astrology & Pranic Therapy

 In the Ayurvedic Model, the planets are classified thus

Jupiter                       Kapha
Sun                            Pitta
Moon                        Vata & Kapha
Mars                          Pitta
Mercury                   Pitta, Vata & Kapha
Venus                      Vata & Kapha
Saturn                      Vata

The Seven planets correspond to Seven gross elements ( dhatus) thus

                         astrovedica, pranic therapy, hindu astrology software consultancy and research                

Jupiter                       Fat
Saturn                       Veins
Mars                         Bone Marrow
Sun                            Bones
Moon                       Blood
Mercury                  Skin
Venus                       Seminal Energy

Medical Astrology postulates that a weak planet can bestow disease. If the sixth house is afflicted, digestive tract disorders are indicated
If the fourth house is afflicted, it clearly means affliction to the heart ( as the heart is the 4th house by correspondence).

Here are the correspondences  between the 7 Deadly Sins & the Seven planets

Jupiter -                        Avarice
Venus -                         Lust
Mars -                           Anger
Saturn -                        Pride
Moon -                         Jealousy
Mercury -                     Sloth
Sun -                             Covetousness

Every man is born with a major flaw. By knowing which planet is afflicted,
the astrologer can discern the Deadly Sin the native is afflicted with. If
Jupiter is weak, Avarice will be high in him. If Mars, anger and if Venus,
lust etc. To overcome that vice, intense prayer and meditation is required
and all vices can only be overcome by Grace Divine .

 Medical Astrology's perspective about the 12 Houses of the Zodiac

Ist House                          Head
2nd House                        Face
Third House                     Throat
Fourth House                   Heart
Fifth House                       Place beneath the heart
Sixth House                       Stomach
Seventh House                Generative Organ
Eighth House                   Upper Thigh
Ninth House                    Thigh
Tenth House                    Knee
Eleventh House               Calf
Twelfth House                 Feet

Affliction to any house indicates affliction to the corresponding part of the body. Rahu - or any other malefic - in the sixth isindicative of stomach trouble & ulceration. Fourth house affliction means that the heart is afflicted and first house affliction means thatthe head is afflicted. Medical Astrology can therefore point to disease and using the yogic technique of Pranic Therapy, the disease can be healed.

Shift of Stand From Head to Heart

Scientific research have accepted "psycho-neuro-immunology - theimpact of mind on the immune system. "Cardiac-neuro-immunology"is also accepted - ( the impact of heart on the immune system ). TheBoth metaphorically and anatomically the centre of our action is the heart. Our heart is 60 times stronger as an electrical generatorcompared to the brain. The heart is the big brother & the brain is the little brother. As all activities of the mind-body pivot around thecentral powerhouse - our heart, we have two different existences, head-centred & heart-centred. 

The new science of Cardio-neuro-immunology postulates that Self-healing requires a cardiocentric attention.We are judgemental if we live with our head-centred scriptOn the other hand, if we adopt a heart-centred way of living, we are incapable of generating any enemy and Love Divine will cure us.

The Internal Healing Power of the body

The human body is remarkable in its own resilience or healing power.

The fiercely competitive world, the tension associated with job & business and an achievement oriented culture keeps our stress arousal level abnormally high. This releases chemicals ( toxins ) such as cortisol, adrenalin & noradrenaline leading to suppression of the immune system and weakening of the body's healing power. We have to get away from this frenzy & vigilance for effectuating healing. This diversion from a stress aroused state is called altered state. In order to heal better, we should be able to enter into the altered state.

Altered State

An altered state is a state different form the normal awakened state.We have three relative states of Consciousness - normal awakened state( Jagrat ), dreaming state ( Swapna ) & Deep Sleep ( Sushupthi).Scientifically REM ( rapid eye movement ) is the Dreaming State and non-REM ( non-rapid eye movement ) is the Deep Sleep state. Thereis a higher state which is called the meditative state. It is our commonintuitive experience & logic that restful sleep is conducive to healing  The interface of entering into sleep is called hypnagogic state .Exiting from sleep is called hypnapompic state. The twilight state has alpha theta brain waves compared to beta waves during awakened state.The meditative state is the same as the twilight state,except that we enter it and exit from it by choice. The meditative state allows our mind and body to talk to each other. ( Normal brain activity is marked by Beta waves of 25 cycles per second where meditative state is characterised by alpha waves of 8.5 cycles per second ).In summary, our stressful life-style does not allow us to enter the alteredstate of sleep, daydream & meditation, to heal by proper body-mind communication and so we have to take refuge in Yoga to effectuate healing.

Opening the System to Divine Shakti or the Cosmic Prana

Scientifically, behind the evolution of the species ( material evolution ),there is an evolution of Consciousness ( spiritual evolution). Our life has only a symbolic value in the sense that it is good and necessary as a Becoming; and all Becoming has Being as its goal & fulfillment and God is the only Being.

Those who find it difficult to follow these techniques can open themselves  to the source of Divine Power through intense prayer. In the Geetha, the Lord promises that He takes care of the material welfare of thedevotee who depend on Him solely. He also gives the Solemn Assurance- that by giving up in heart and soul to him, the devotee will overcome all  difficulties by Grace Divine. He also gives the Word of Refuge ( Abhaya Vachana ) that His devotee shall never perish. By cultivating an attitude of trust & absolute self-surrender, we can open ourselves to Cosmic Prana, Absolute self-reliance has been defined as Reliance on the Absolute Self. When such a divine attitude becomes deeply ingrained in our psyche, we find that everything in Nature becoming  favorable to us and the process of healing takes place in our psychophysical system. Thousands of people all over the world have found health, prosperity and peace through yogic methods. Prayer overcomes the resistance of the ego &opens the chambers of the unconscious to the inflow of Divine Shakti  or Cosmic Prana. For this, however, prayer must be done with intensity, sincerity & perseverance. Only through this kind of prayer can we know how Pranic Healing takes place. 

The Grace always grants the sincere prayers !

Summing up, if we remove all mental & physical blocks and open our channels to the Cosmic Prana, the Universal Stream of Consciousness pervading the Universe, we can get ourselves healed. Since removingall blocks is difficult humanly, it is better to request for Divine Help. By means of the greatest Art that is Bhakthi Yoga, all blocks willbe removed by Grace Divine and the greatest doctor that Nature is will heal us.

All glory to the All-Merciful, the All-Compassionate! 

How strange is  Thy Grace !
