Cosmic energy or Prana
In Hindu philosophy including yoga, Indian medicine, and martial arts, prana (प्राण, prāṇa; the Sanskrit word for “life force” or “vital principle”)is all cosmic energy, permeating the Universe on all levels. Prana is often referred to as the “life force” or “life energy”. It also includes energies present in inanimate objects. In the literature, prana is sometimes described as originating from the Sun and connecting the elements of the Universe. This life energy has been vividly invoked and described in the ancient Vedas and Upanishads. In living beings, this universal energy is considered responsible for all bodily functions through five types of prana, collectively known as the five vāyus. Ayurveda, tantra and Tibetan medicine all describe praṇā vāyu as the basic vāyu from which all the other vāyus arise. Indologist Georg Feuerstein explains “The Chinese call it chi, the Polynesians mana, the Amerindians orenda, and the ancient Germans od. It is an all-pervasive ‘organic’ energy.
The meaning of prana is ‘life force’ or ‘vital energy’. In the universal sense, prana is responsible for all creation. It is the prana within every created object, whether a planet, an asteroid, a blade of grass or a tree, that gives it existence, material form. If there were no prana within that object or manifestation there would be no form; it would gradually crumble and go out of existence. So, on the macrocosmic level, prana is like a vast, all encompassing sea of vital energy. Every object in creation is floating in that sea like a fish in water, and from that sea of energy we gain everything we need for life. That prana is known as cosmic prana or mahaprana.From mahaprana each individual gains his personal existence. The quantum of prana which gives life to the individual is called individual prana. We separate it from mahaprana, but it is the same prana. These terms are used by different groups but all refer to the same thing. They represent the nutritive energy of the Universe found in the atmosphere around us that we absorb through breathing, and through our auras and chakras. There are many people today who can see the prana in the air with their eyes in real terms. Prana can be absorbed through breathing through the lungs or through what is called “pore breathing”, that is breathing through every cell of our bodies.
Prana is the sum total of energy. life force, lifetrons; vital energy; Sparks of intelligent finer-than-atomic energy that constitute life, collectively referred to in Hindu scriptural treatises as prana. In essence, condensed thoughts of God; substance of the astral world and life principle of the physical cosmos. In the physical world, there are two kinds of prana:
– the cosmic vibratory energy that is omnipresent in the universe, structuring and sustaining all things
– the specific prana or energy that pervades and sustains each human body through five currents or functions.
We think of ourselves as separate entities or beings moving around in this world, but we are all part and parcel of the universal or cosmic prana. This cosmic prana or energy has been eulogized in all the ancient cultures and religions, and known as mahashakti, mahakundalini, mahamaya, the great mother. Through that mother we can connect ourselves to the highest reality or pure consciousness.If you can unite yourself with the universal prana, you can draw the required amount of prana whenever you need.In order to tune yourself to this universal prana, you must be able to reach a high state of meditation through Tantra Meditations. When you control the breath, the mind is also controlled and the awareness becomes one-pointed. That one-pointed awareness is comprehended in the mid-eyebrow centre where the point is seen as a light. The light grows in intensity and becomes bigger and bigger until it completely envelops your consciousness. Then there is illumination all around you, and at this point you can connect yourself with the universal prana.
It is said that in the beginning there was just pure consciousness from which emanated pure energy or mahaprana. Pure consciousness and pure energy exist in the unmanifest dimension. However, when pure consciousness decided to become manifest, then it manifested through pure energy. So from pure prana emanated the first manifestation in creation which was sound. Sound is the most subtle aspect of manifest prana. Form gradually emanated from sound and from the subtlest form came all the objects of creation, including our own individual being. So all of us have our life within this concept of cosmic prana. Our real mother, our true mother, is mahaprana or mahashakti.
Prana current performs the function of crystallization; vyana current, circulation; samana current, assimilation; udana current, metabolism; and apana current, elimination.
The universal prana underlying all combinations in creation is the basis of unity that has prevented the One Spirit from being irrevocably split into many. It pervades all atoms of the universe and every place in the cosmos. It is the primal, direct, subtle link between matter and Spirit—less spiritual than the Great Spirit, but more spiritual than the material atoms. This universal prana is the father of all so-called forces, which Spirit (in Its immanent form) utilizes to create and sustain the universe. Prana is an intelligent force, but has no consciousness in the empirical, nor transcendental, sense. It is the basis of the empirical consciousness, but soul is the conscious unit. Soul through ego dictates, and prana, its servant, obeys. Prana, neither grossly material nor purely spiritual, borrows from the soul its power of activating the body. It is the power lodged between soul and matter for the purpose of expressing the former and moving the latter. The soul can exist without prana, but the prana in the body cannot exist without a soul as its substratum. Just like red light is a part of the white light, each and every energy, including the well known Reiki energy, is a part of prana. Prana is an auto-energizing force which creates, maintains and destroys. It permeates each individual as well as the Universe at all levels. It acts as physical energy that we manipulate daily, mental energy where the mind gathers information and as intellectual energy, where information is examined and filtered. Prana also acts as sexual energy, spiritual energy and cosmic energy. All that vibrates in this Universe is prana: heat, light, gravity, magnetism, vigor, power, vitality, electricity, life and spirit are all forms of prana. It is the cosmic personality, potent in all beings and non-beings. It is the prime mover of all activity. It is the wealth of life.There is an old Vedic story about Prana that we find in various Upanishads. The five main faculties of our nature – the mind, breath (prana), speech, ear and eye – were arguing with each other as to which one of them was the best and most important. This reflects the ordinary human state in which our faculties are not integrated but fight with each other, competing for their rule over our attention. To resolve this dispute they decided that each would leave the body and see whose absence was most missed.
One who knows Prana knows the workings of the universe.The prana in cosmic is what we call the cosmic energy. The activation of cosmic energy will enable you to have supernatural powers within you. This energy is ready to use and can be used for many purposes.
We will activate certain chakra in your system and also connect you to the source of universal energy called Hiranyagarbha . This energy is permanent and will remain forever with you. Prana is not only the life force, it is also a very powerful healing force in the body that can even eradicate the most difficult physical problems. Moreover, the prana within us is a part of the universal prana. This can be used according your intent and is programmable.There is one cosmic prana (consciousness life force) manifesting in numerous names and forms in the universe. It is the origin of every thing. It is very difficult for us to attune ourselves to the universal prana because our awareness is very limited. Most of us only know about deep breathing, and we think that by breathing deeply fifty to a hundred times, we will get more and more shakti. Of course we do, but we need a finer form of prana shakti which can be used for awakening the brain.
Prana is the universal principle of energy or force. It is the sum total of all energy that is manifest in the universe, all the forces in nature and powers which are hidden in men and which lie everywhere around us. This prana remains in a subtle, motionless, unmanifested, undifferentiated state during the cosmic pralaya, dissolution. When the vibration is set up, prana moves and acts upon akasha, space, and brings forth the various forms. The macrocosm, brahmanda, and microcosm, pindanda, are combinations of prana and akasha.
All forces, all powers and prana spring from the fountain or common source, known as atman. Heat, light, electricity, magnetism are manifestations of prana. It may be in either a static or a dynamic state. It is found in all forms from the highest to the lowest, from the ant to the elephant, the unicellular amoebae to man, from the elementary forms of plant life to the developed forms of animal life.Prana is the link between the astral and physical body. When the slender thread-link of prana is cut, the astral body separates from the physical body. Death takes place. The prana that was working in the physical body is withdrawn into the astral body.
Throughout your body there is a pranic field which is known as pranamaya kosha. You must know how to tune this pranamaya kosha with the universal prana. Your pranamaya kosha can be awakened by practising pranayama correctly, by fasting or eating properly, and by perfecting meditation on the mid-eyebrow centre. Then, when you are able to see that great enveloping light, you become the medium of the universal prana. Thereafter, you can distribute this prana to those who are in short supply.
In the human body, prana is said to flow through energy channels called nadis. There are said to be thousands of nadis, but the three main ones are:
- Ida – Located to the left of the spine. This is the introverted, lunar channel.
- Pingala – Located to the right of the spine. This is the extroverted, solar channel.
- Sushumna – Located along the center of the spine. This is the central channel, which the energy of Kundalini awakening flows through.
Prana is believed to flow in and out of the body through the breath. A yogi may use techniques such as pranayama to enhance their energy. Performing yoga asanas can also help prana to flow more freely.
Prana is expended by thinking, willing, acting, moving, talking and writing. A healthy strong person has an abundance of prana (or nerve-force or vitality). It is supplied by food, water, air, solar energy, etc. The supply of prana is taken up by the nervous system. The prana in the air is absorbed by breathing. The excess is stored in the brain and nerve centres. When the seminal energy is sublimated or transformed it supplies an abundance of prana to the system. It is stored in the brain in the form of spiritual energy.
The five pranas
The prana within our individual being has been categorized into five groups, but we need to understand that the individual prana is one prana. We do not call it mahaprana, but will refer to this overall prana which gives us life as Prana with a capital ‘p’. When Prana leaves our body then we will be clinically dead and gradually our form will disintegrate.To understand the functions of individual prana we divide it into five main categories: prana, with a small ‘p’, samana, apana, udana and vyana. These are the five pranas which together maintain the entire function of our physical form.
Prana is an ancient concept and is referred to in many Hindu scriptures and texts, such as the Upanishads and the Vedas. These texts state that prana originates from Atman. From the Sanskrit an, meaning “movement,” and pra, meaning “constant,” prana means “constant motion,” and refers to the idea that vital or life force energy is always dynamic. Prana is often understood in relation to the physical body and health and wellness through the chakras. It is thought that when someone is well and balanced, prana flows freely through the seven major chakras. However, when there are blockages or imbalances, they may manifest as physical or emotional issues.
Prana is said to be of the colour of blood, red gem or coral. Apana is of the colour indragopa (an insect of white or red color). Samana is of the colour between that of pure milk or crystal and an oily shining colour, that is, something between both prana and apana. Udana is of an apandara, pale white, color and vyana resembles the color of archis, a ray of light.
Prana is not only the life force, it is also a very powerful healing force in the body that can even eradicate the most difficult physical problems. Moreover, the prana within us is a part of the universal prana. Throughout your body there is a pranic field which is known as pranamaya kosha. You must know how to tune this pranamaya kosha with the universal prana. Your pranamaya kosha can be awakened by practising pranayama correctly, by fasting or eating properly, and by perfecting meditation on the mid-eyebrow centre. Then, when you are able to see that great enveloping light, you become the medium of the universal prana. Thereafter, you can distribute this prana to those who are in short supply.
There are 5 types of expressing the Cosmic energy : Prana (inward moving energy), apana (outward moving energy), vyana (circulation of energy), udana (energy of the head and throat), and samana (digestion and assimilation). Early mention of specific pranas often emphasized prāṇa, apāna and vyāna as “the three breaths”.
Prana: Prana with a small ‘p’ is located between the diaphragm and the throat. This prana is an upward flowing force. It maintains the function of the lungs and heart, and is responsible for inhalation and exhalation, and for the swallowing and regurgitation of food. Although it is an upward moving force in general, it also has the ability to move downward in that region.
Samana: The next prana is known as samana. The word sam means ‘equal’ or ‘same’. Samana is located between the diaphragm and the navel. Although it is a small area physically, it is very important. Samana is responsible for the digestive energy and coordinates and motivates the digestive organs such as the stomach, liver, pancreas and large intestine. If anything goes wrong with your samana energy then you will become weak and thin because you will not be able to absorb the nutrients in the food properly. It takes a tremendous amount of energy to digest, burn and separate the nutrients which we take in daily. That is one of the greatest pranic expenditures within our body.Samana, literally the “balancing air,” moves from the periphery to the center, through a churning and discerning action. It aids in digestion on all levels. It works in the gastrointestinal tract to digest food, in the lungs to digest air or absorb oxygen, and in the mind to homogenize and digest experiences, whether sensory, emotional or mental.
Apana: The third prana is apana. Apana is located between the navel and the perineum in the pelvic region. It is a very important energy field which is responsible for sexual activity, procreation, production of semen and ovum, elimination of urine, faces, gas, wind and expulsion of the fetus. This energy is mainly downward flowing, but we can also redirect it upward to the brain.Apana, literally the “air that moves away,” moves downward and outward and governs all forms of elimination and reproduction (which also has a downward movement). It governs the elimination of the stool and the urine, the expelling of semen, menstrual fluid and the fetus, and the elimination of carbon dioxide through the breath. On a deeper level it rules the elimination of negative sensory, emotional and mental experiences. It is the basis of our immune function on all levels.
Udana: The fourth prana is udana. Udana is located in the head region as well as the limbs, between the shoulders and the fingertips, and from the hips down to the toes. It is associated with the motor and sensory nervous system. Udana controls an immense amount of energy. It coordinates and activates the nervous system, moves the limbs of the body and receives and categorizes the different sensory inputs from the external world. Udana is connected intimately with the functions of the five senses, eyes, nose, mouth, ears and touch. If this prana becomes weak or disturbed, we find it difficult to coordinate, balance and integrate our sensory and motor nerves. Udana, literally the “upward moving air,” moves upward and qualitative or trans formative movements of the life-energy. It governs growth of the body, the ability to stand, speech, effort, enthusiasm and will. It is our main positive energy in life through which we can develop our different bodies and evolve in consciousness.
Vyana: The fifth prana is vyana. Vyana is an integral prana. It exists throughout the body as an underlying reserve force, so if anything goes wrong in another area of prana, vyana can step in and support that weak or imbalanced area. Thereby vyana prevents diseases and imbalances from occurring in the different systems and parts of the body. Should vyana become weak or deficient then diseases will arise because there will be no back up system.Vyana, literally the “outward moving air,” moves from the center to the periphery. It governs circulation on all levels. It moves the food, water and oxygen throughout the body, and keeps our emotions and thoughts circulating in the mind, imparting movement and providing strength. In doing so it assists all the other Pranas in their work.What is commonly known as the power of personality is nothing more than the natural capacity of a person to wield his prana. Some persons are more successful in life, more influential and fascinating than others. It is all due to the power of this prana. Such people manipulate every day, unconsciously of course, the same influence which the yogi uses consciously by the command of his will. It is very difficult for us to attune ourselves to the universal prana because our awareness is very limited. Most of us only know about deep breathing, and we think that by breathing deeply fifty to a hundred times, we will get more and more shakti. Of course we do, but we need a finer form of prana shakti which can be used for awakening the brain.
Prana has many levels of meaning from the breath to the energy of consciousness itself. Prana is not only the basic life-force, it is the master form of all energy working on the level of mind, life and body. Indeed the entire universe is a manifestation of Prana, which is the original creative power. Even Kundalini Shakti, the serpent power or inner power that transforms consciousness, develops from the awakened Prana.
On a cosmic level there are two basic aspects of Prana. The first is the unmanifest aspect of Prana, which is the energy of Pure Consciousness that transcends all creation. The second or manifest Prana is the force of creation itself. Prana arises from the quality (guna) of rajas, the active force of Nature (Prakriti). Nature herself consists of three gunas: sattva or harmony, which gives rise to the mind, rajas or movement, which gives rise to the prana, and tamas or inertia that gives rise to the body.By control of prana the yogi can also control the omnipresent manifesting power out of which all energies take their origin, whether concerning magnetism, electricity, gravitation, cohesion, nerve currents, vital forces or thought vibrations; in fact, the total forces of the universe, physical and mental. A comprehensive knowledge of prana and its function is absolutely necessary for pranayama. The five Pranas are energies and processes that occur on several levels. However we can localize them in a few key ways. Prana Vayu governs the movement of energy from the head down to the navel, which is the Pranic center in the physical body. Apana Vayu governs the movement of energy from the navel down to the root chakra. Samana Vayu governs the movement of energy from the entire body back to the navel. Vyana Vayu governs the movement of energy out from the navel throughout the entire body. Udana governs the movement of energy from the navel up to the head. As a simple summary we could say that Prana governs the intake of substances. Samana governs their digestion. Vyana governs the circulation of nutrients. Udana governs the release of positive energy. Apana governs the elimination of waste-materials..
The psychic center’s
Prana however exists not just on a physical level. The navel is the main vital center for the physical body. The heart is the main center for the Pranamaya Kosha. The head is the main center for Manomaya kosha.Without Prana the physical body is no more than a lump of clay. Prana sculpts this gelatinous mass into various limbs and organs. It does this by creating various channels or Nadis, through which it can operate and energize gross matter into various tissues and organs.
Prana Vayu creates the openings and channels in the head and brain down to the heart. There are seven openings in the head, the two eyes, two ears, two nostrils and mouth. These are called the seven Pranas or seven Rishis in Vedic thought. Udana assists Prana in creating the openings in the upper part of the body, particularly those of the mouth and vocal organs. The mouth, after all, is the main opening in the head and in the entire body. It could be said that the entire physical body is an extension of the mouth, which is the main organ of physical activity, eating and self-expression.
Apana Vayu creates the openings in the lower part of the body, those of the urino-genital and excretory systems. Samana Vayu creates the openings in the middle part of the body, those of the digestive system, centered in the navel. It opens out the channels of the intestines and the organs, like the liver and pancreas, which secrete into it. Vyana Vayu creates the channels going to the peripheral parts of the body, the arms and legs. It creates the veins and arteries and also the muscles, sinews, joints and bones.
In summary, Samana Vayu creates the trunk of the body (which is dominated by the gastro-intestinal tract), while Vyana Vayu creates the limbs. Prana and Udana create the upper openings or bodily orifices, while Apana creates those below.
So here we have a blueprint of the pranic system within our physical body. Each one of these pranas is also related with a particular psychic center, which is like the power station which generates the energy for that area. The psychic center is much more subtle than the pranic area or the physical region. It is a vortex which is spinning around and around like a disc from outer space. It receives the very refined cosmic prana from the universe, absorbs it inside and transforms it, so that it can be utilized by our body for particular physical functions. The psychic centers are also responsible for igniting and illumining different regions in the brain so that we can access the higher faculties.
The psychic centers transmit energy to the physical and mental levels. For example, the centers related with apana, the downward flowing force between the navel and the perineum, are mooladhara and swadhisthana chakras. They are responsible for the evolution of our sexual energy, and the functions of urination and defecation.
The energy of samana, in the middle region, is related with manipura chakra, represented by the sun or a blazing fire. Manipura is the centre of prana, the storehouse of prana. Prana with a small ‘p’ is located in the region between the diaphragm and the throat, and is connected with anahata chakra, the heart center, the center of feeling and emotion. Udana, the energy from the neck to the top of the head, and arms and legs is related with vishuddhi and ajna chakras. Vyana is related with all the chakras together. This is a general concept of the pranic body which in yogic terms is called pranamaya kosha.
The five koshas
The Pranamaya Kosha is the sphere of our vital life energies. This sheath mediates between the body on one side and the three sheaths of the mind (outer mind, intelligence and inner mind) on the other and has an action on both levels. It meditates between the five gross elements and the five sensory impressions.
The best English term for the Pranamaya kosha is probably the “vital sheath” or “vital body,” to use a term from Sri Aurobindo’s Integral Yoga. Pranamaya kosha consists of our vital urges of survival, reproduction, movement and self-expression, being mainly connected to the five motor organs (excretory, urino-genital, feet, hands, and vocal organ).
Most of us are dominated by the vital body and its deep-seated urges that are necessary for us to remain alive. It is also the home of the vital or subconscious ego which holds the various fears, desires and attachments which afflict us. We most of our spend our time in life seeking enjoyment through the vital in the form of sensory enjoyment and acquisition of material objects.A strong vital or Pranamaya kosha, however, is important for the spiritual path as well, but this is very different than the egoistic or desire oriented vital. It derives its strength not from our personal power but from surrender to the Divine and its great energy. Without a strong spiritual vital we lack the power to do our practices and not fall under worldly influences. In Hindu mythology this higher Prana is symbolized by the monkey God Hanuman, the son of the Wind, who surrendered to the Divine in the form of Sita-Rama, can become as large or small as he wishes, can overcome all enemies and obstacles, and accomplish the miraculous. Such a spiritual vital has energy, curiosity and enthusiasm in life along with a control of the senses and vital urges, with their subordination to a higher will and aspiration
The five koshas are: annamaya, pranamaya, manomaya, vijnanamaya and anandamaya. Annamaya is the prana which gives form to our material existence. Within annamaya kosha, like a network or infrastructure, we have pranamaya kosha. Pranamaya gives life to annamaya. It is subtle, it gives movement to the physical form. More subtle still is manomaya kosha. Manomaya kosha is the energy of the mind. Without it the mind would not function; we could not think, remember, rationalize or even dream. We would be like total vegetables, in a coma.
When the energy of the mind becomes even more subtle, then we enter into the dimension of vijnanamaya kosha, the dimension of psychic prana. It is a very refined form of prana between the subconscious and the unconscious. This is the prana which comes to us in the form of visions, when we experience or hear something internally, intuition, prophecy, vision, darshan. Finally we come to the dimension of anandamaya kosha which is the transcendental realm. Here we transcend the normal dimension of prana and enter into the cosmic dimension. Then we experience the transcendental or cosmic prana, the mahaprana which exists in the un manifest dimension at the level of Shiva and Shakti.
Well, the source of cosmic energy is the same as reiki, but it is
not programmed. It is in raw form waiting for user to program according to their wishes. The cosmic energy has no limitation in function. The only limitation will be the user’s capability to explore it.
What is the use of cosmic energy?
As mentioned above, this energy doesn’t known any boundary. Here is a list of some of the most common uses.
2. Improving your life
3. Manipulate nature like moving rain or bring in rain
4. Transfer the energy to any object or activate any object with the cosmic power
5. For self protection
6. Prosperity and wealth
7. Magic… as the user grow in meditation and be able to program it.
8. …and many more as the user wishes. This is very powerful for manifestation and any form of energy work!
The activation only can be done in person or through distant activation method (we will need your picture). Distance Activation via photo is effective in this case since our main energy workers handling this are located in India & Malaysia.
The whole process of the energy activation will take about 1 to 2 hours. We will tell you exactly when to relax to receive the initiation and we will send the manual teaching how to access and use the energy. It details all about programming and practicing.
As your cosmic connection level increases, you will be able to communicate with the cosmic more easily. Mere intents will result in astonishing manifestations. The life becomes easy and the body becomes a better place to live.
