“The Body is very often the personification of this shadow of the ego. Sometimes it forms the skeleton in the cupboard,” wrote Carl Jung, “and everybody naturally wants to get rid of such a thing.” Through the symbolism of illness and physical symptoms, our bodies reflect the darkness and the light the shadow holds for us until we are ready to accept it. It is the shadow-face of our souls that holds the light and the darkness until we are strong enough to face and heal what we have previously denied or rejected about ourselves. Our bodies and their ailments are not our enemies, and neither are our shadows. The shadow reveal the negative ego patterns we had previously rejected or denied, through the messages of our illnesses, so we can recognize, forgive, and heal them. The shadow is the ally of our true self and the enemy of our negative egos.

What if one of the most effective tools you have to restore your health is not surgery or medications, but your own hands? Incredibly, your hands can heal you -- with the "energy medicine" of Pranic Healing. A powerful system that is rapidly increasing in popularity, Pranic Healing works with your own natural, vital energy -- which is also called prana -- to accelerate your body's innate self-healing ability. Amazingly easy to learn and apply, Pranic Healing uses a series of powerful but simple methods to generate energy, including non-touch hand movements; energetic hygiene, the practice of keeping your personal energy tank clean and full; breathing; and brief meditations. Using these unique techniques, you can identify, clear, and purify unhealthy, imbalanced energy and replace it with fresh energy that helps your body heal itself from a wide range of physical, psychological, and emotional symptoms and disorders. A self-healing guide for 24 ailments, including physical and sports injuries, chronic arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, insomnia, hypertension, headaches, backaches, congestion and colds, menstrual cramps, even depression and stress-related disorders, is included. With step-by-step instructions, line drawings, and numerous real-life medical stories, Your Hands Can Heal You demonstrates and explains a revolutionary program that anyone can use to harness the energy of body, mind, and breath to produce health and facilitate repair.
