|To run the complete body, we require energy which we acquire from our surroundings or environment e.g. from the food we eat, the air we breathe, surface we walk on (foot contact), what we touch, the clothes we wear, what we look at, of whom we think
It is the Prana which makes our body run. The body lives only because of its ability to hold and utilise Prana. In simple terms Prana is the force in the universe. Anything and everything in this creation is Prana. It is a frequency of energy which manifests into a being as the various essentials (dhatu), asthi (bones), maas (flesh), meda (fat), rakta (blood), majja (marrow), rasa (lymph) and sukra (semen) or the seven vitals which are responsible for forming the dimension of human existence. To run the complete body, we require energy which we acquire from our surroundings or environment e.g. from the food we eat, the air we breathe, surface we walk on (foot contact), what we touch, the clothes we wear, what we look at, of whom we think. In short anything we come in contact with in our surroundings becomes a source of the energy needed for running our body.
Prana is so inherent in our existence that even the seven kinds of excretions (mal) are also prana but of course of a different frequency. Even the soul lives in the body till the pranic frequency to which it is tuned, is found in the body. Each and every action of ours, all our moods, aspirations, likings and dislikings, abilities, tastes, energy levels, success and failures, diseases and health - are all just a manifestation of prana.
Since food is an important source of prana in our next series we will discuss food as a source of Prana and also the various types of pranas found in different foods alongwith their properties and how we can identify each of these frequencies.
Talking about colours which fascinate us so much, have we ever thought why we have liking for certain colours while the others seem to be depressing and dull? The answer is simple: It is the pranic frequency at which each of these colours vibrate which make them so different from each other. This vibration to a clairvoyant appears as a combination of different colours and just a glance of these colours can make one detect the problem areas in the body. Each food has a unique colour and each colour a distinct property. Even different shades of the same colour tend to have different properties. So a healthy diet normally comprises of all the colours which are conducive to one’s natural state. As Ayurveda says, “Sarvada sarvbhavanama samanyam vridhi karanama. (Similar colour and similar property increases similar dhatu).”
