Proof of the pudding is in the eating

Party season is coming up and the one thing we all dread is that random person who will corner us and tell us about the magic pill they took to get on top of an ailment or life situation they think we are suffering from too! Have we not all had some version of that experience? Where the other person shares information or a suggestion they think might help, in the most well-intentioned manner, but given our unfamiliarity with the subject, we dismiss it and rush to top up our glass of wine?

Arguably set in a different context but with a conclusion relevant to ours here, a 2010 study from the University of Pennsylvania has shown that people often dismiss new ideas because the uncertainty surrounding them makes us think and thinking too hard makes us uncomfortable. So, we tend to stay with the tried and the tested. But a more helpful, enriching response might be to try the ‘new thing’ out, experience it for ourselves and then make up our minds. As they say, the proof of the pudding is in the eating.

A lot of pranic healers have become lifelong believers in the role of energy or prana in maintaining and enhancing wellbeing at all levels, and now live a much higher quality of life, simply because they approached their first experience of it with an open and experimental mindset. Master Choa Kok Sui, the modern founder of Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga, was an engineer with a scientific bent of mind. He strongly advocated not taking anything on face value and encouraged all new students to validate with experiments – scanning energy, applying it via micro healings for small aches / pains / daily stress management, and with a positive experience and enhanced belief in the modality, take the next step forward.
