What is Prana?

Maggie Kelly

In order to transform our world, we first must transform ourselves. One of the ways in which we do this is being willing to go beyond our daily worries and conflicts as well as the stories we tell ourselves that we are convinced make us who we are. We need to get honest about the work that needs to be done to shed the old expired version of ourselves so that we can re-emerge in emptiness with a blank slate ready to create ourselves anew. It is only when we take ourselves on and change ourselves that we have any hope of changing the world around us. 

But beyond taking ourselves on by digging up the past stories we have carried around with us for years, sometimes decades, we must be willing to engage in the world of energy; the invisible and unseen. Many of us are unaware how these are the energies that affect and influence our everyday lives. 

In the East, this energy is known as prana, chi, or even the Tao. Andean Shamans know it as TI, and it forms part of the names of sacred places such as Lake Titicaca, the sea on top of the world, and the name Inti, the sun god. 

Prana isn’t the power to dominate or rule over other people or nature, although nature indeed responds to it. It’s not the power of money or material things, though those are available through prana too. It’s not the power to defeat illness and old age, although health and longevity flow from it. 

Prana is the power to create and collaborate, to give birth to the new.

Prana is to be used for the benefit of others, of all beings and the Earth. But prana must be shared so that all can survive. 

Too often, we come to our spiritual practice worried about fixing our individual situations or helping one person so much so that we become oblivious to the bigger picture. When we are working on ourselves, we forget we’re part of a cosmos far greater than ourselves that affects all of us and that we, in turn, can affect. 

Religious teachings tell us that the life force was created by God and is present in humans, plants, and animals until they die. But the life force, the prana, is everywhere. Access it and you can draw beneficial life energies into your being and release what you have decided you don’t want or need anymore. 

Find your own path instead of unquestioningly following the one you were expected to follow: the one that would make your family happy and proud. When you uncover, discover and discard the old stories you tell yourself about who you are and what you can and cannot accomplish, that you aren’t “good enough” and all of the other stories ruminating in your psychological basement, you will feel the life force of prana more readily. You will be able to dream your world into reality.

Are you ready to let go of your preconceived notions of yourself and your future?

Are you ready to empower yourself to take action to live an awakened life of passion, meaning and purpose?
One of the most powerful aspects setting coaching apart from traditional therapy is your generative involvement in your own transformation.

Your commitment and consistency are key to your progress throughout this life-altering journey.
