Contentment with Life and Self

January 29, 2023 Leave a comment

by Mia Geronimo

One thing I have learned in life is to be content and grateful for what God has reserved for me. I had struggled with anger and hangups about my life, especially about my unique family background (no biological dad around, no siblings or close cousins). I wanted to be like everyone else. For instance, I longed to have a barkada (peer-group) and do gimmicks (I previously had no solid friends nor did frequent gimmicks). I also longed to have my mom and dad around and to bond with cousins at family gatherings and other events.

All I could do was resent my uncommon life and not count my blessings. God had actually blessed me with so much. However, in all honesty, I sometimes turned a blind eye to my blessings. I focused on whatever I did not have and how envious I was of others.

Imagine the following scenarios:

-A person living in a high-end single house who wishes s/he lived in a family compound instead

-A second-born child who wishes s/he was in a family where s/he was the first-, no older, child before him/her

-A last-born who wishes there was a younger child who came after him/her

-A millionaire unhappy with his salary and wanting to be a billionaire

-A person who has traveled a lot in the world but feels bad that s/he has not been to her/his dream destination

-A second honor student feeling frustrated over not getting first honors

All they can think of is what’s missing, without appreciating the blessings that came with their situation.

It hurts God to see His child so discontented after receiving all those blessings. It’s like giving a nice dollhouse to your 6-year-old daughter for her birthday. Of course, you expect to see her cheerfully smiling and thanking you for her gift. Instead, all she can do is grumble that all you gave her is the dollhouse.

“Mom/Dad, is this all you can give me for my birthday? It’s not enough”. You hear this much to your disappointment. How much more hurt can you be that she received it with discontent instead of appreciation?

That is exactly the same feeling God has when He gives you this buffet of blessings and all you do is grumble over what you don’t have.

It’s called ingratitude. Discontentment. Thanklessness.

That has been me at certain points. But now, I have decided to be more grateful for my situation—even my unique family structure. Admittedly though, I still find myself once in a  while with a half-empty mindset. I cannot say I have mastered gratitude. I still have a lot of work to do to become even more appreciative. However, I noticed that my discontent with life has drastically reduced. The tools of Pranic Healing, especially the Kriyashakti techniques, have helped me focus more on abundance instead of on lack.

When I resolved to be more grateful, I noticed I got more and more blessings. For example, my friendships have improved. Early last year, I reconnected with God-centered, spiritual girlfriends. Eventually, we became a barkada and started going out frequently. I also became close to more people from the Pranic Healing family. I have more service opportunities as a student of the Pranic Healing school. I am part of the attendance team in the 5AM online meditation. I also am in the tech team in the evening online healing enrichment sessions.  I joined an online marketing business early last year and found good friends among fellow distributors. I also saw improvements in my relationships with family, physical health, and spiritual life—especially getting closer to God, and in my finances.


Much as I have learned to be more appreciative, I still find myself wanting more of this and that. I want to live a “normal” life like everyone else. I am able, though, to balance this striving for a better life and contentment with my situation.


I learned that it is okay to want more but still be content with what you have. Contentment does not mean complacency. Also, the desire for more should not mean a dislike of your life. Balance contentment and desire for more, in other words.


God gives us sufficient blessings and to appreciate them is to appreciate what He has done for us. He wants to see us, His children, be appreciative of His gifts.


Remember to always thank God for His blessings. Every day should be Thanksgiving Day, not just on the 4th Thursday of November. After all, His blessings come to us all 365 or 366 days of the year.  Even the smallest of blessings shall you thank Him for. The mere fact that you woke up today, that you can breathe—even that deserves appreciation. Be grateful but don’t be complacent. Strive for more but don’t be ungrateful.

Healing Meditation for Persons Deprived of Liberty (PDLs)

pranic healing

By Paulyn

Meditation on Twin Hearts is an audio-guided meditation by Master Choa Kok Sui.  He is the founder of Pranic Healing and the Arhatic Yoga System.  This meditation helps practitioners experience peace and illumination while blessing Mother Earth with harmony and loving kindness.  It is a simple, yet powerful and advanced spiritual technology for achieving a higher level of consciousness or “Illumination” by activating the heart and the crown chakras.  Meditation on Twin Hearts is practiced by millions of people worldwide.  Doing this regularly can contribute to world peace.


“Just as Pranic Healing can ‘miraculously’ cure simple and severe ailments, the Meditation on Twin Hearts, when practiced by a large number of people, can miraculously heal the entire earth; thereby making the earth more harmonious and peaceful.”


–Master Choa Kok Sui


Benefits of Meditation on Twin Hearts:


  • Improve your health
  • Reduce stress, anxiety, and depression
  • Have a sharper mind and greater happiness
  • Increase self-esteem
  • Improve your relationships
  • Become a divine channel
  • Increase good luck


Practicing Meditation on Twin Hearts is like taking a Spiritual Shower. When your aura is clean, you experience a Higher Level of awareness. When your aura is clean, you see through things more clearly. Even your Good Luck increases.”


-Master Choa Kok Sui  


Hence, after the Pranic Self-Healing Course, I started to do the Meditation on Twin Hearts once or twice a day, every day. I noticed a lot of immediate changes.  I felt more peace within myself.  I became more patient, kind, and tolerant of the people around me.  I also had a clearer mind.


On November 7, 2022, we started to conduct Meditation on Twin Hearts once a week for the 280++ People Deprived of Liberty (PDL) in  Marikina City Jail (Ladies’ Dorm). This is a collaboration between some volunteers from the Pranic Healing Foundation of the Philippines and the Inner Wheel Club of the Philippines.  It is an inspired action by co-Pranic Healer and Arhatic Yoga Practitioner, Ms. Stella Estremera from Mindanao Pranic Healing Training Center in Davao.


As early as 4 weeks into the meditations, we started receiving the following testimonials from the PDLs:


Rica L., 27yrs old


“I felt relaxed after the Meditation on Twin Hearts and more optimistic in life. I surrendered all my worries and anxiety to God.”


Ericka P.,  22yrs old


“Nakaramdam ako ng magandang feeling nung nag Meditation on Twin Hearts kami at feel ko makikita ko yung mga anak ko at makakalaro ko din.  I am so happy for that.”


(“I felt happy when we did the Meditation on Twin Hearts.  I feel that I will soon get to see and play with my children.  I am so happy about that.”)


Kaycee A., 37yrs old


“Simula po nung nag-start akong umattend ng Meditation on Twin Hearts sinubukan kong magdasal ng mula sa puso at sa awa ni God dininig niya ang panalangin ko na madalaw po ako ng aking pamilya sa tagal ko po na nakapiit dito. Salamat po talaga. God bless!”


(“When I started to attend the Meditation on Twin Hearts, I tried to pray from my heart.  I am so grateful that God heard my prayer that my family will visit me since it has been a long time since I have been here.  Thank you so much! God bless!”)


Grace Joy,  43 yrs old


“Since we started the Meditation on Twin Hearts here in our community, I felt physical improvement and the aura is more positive compared to before. Thank you!


Normala S., 24 yrs old


“Simula po noong sumali ako ng Meditation on Twin Hearts nagdasal po ako kay Allah na sana maka uwi po ako para makasama ang mga anak ko po dahil sa tagal kona po. 3 years na po ako dito.  Biglang nag granted ang petition for bail ko po. Salamat po.”


(“Since I started to join the Meditation on Twin Hearts, I prayed to Allah that I want to go home so I can be with my children.  It has been 3 years that I have been here.  Surprisingly, my petition for bail was granted! Thank you so much!”)


Our deepest gratitude to MCKS for all the teachings and for inspiring in us the Goodwill to do good — to make Heaven on Earth.

Drifting Through Life

December 10, 2022 Leave a comment

By Atty. Chi Padayao

The external world was still the same. The dirty plastic trash bins in front of the apartment were still overflowing with yesterday’s garbage. The constant sounds of the neighbors, the pedestrians, the tricycles, and even cars in the narrow streets still insisted on clouding her mind.


It’s as if what remained were the inconveniences. The ones that felt good— her relationships, her siblings, her happy workplace, her friends—were nowhere to be found. Only her cigarettes had been at the nearby table for almost two decades. Through college exams, romance with lovers, good and (bad) times with friends, or strangers in strange new places.


She felt the shiver in her skin. As if the shadows of the past long gone crawled through them. It heavily weighed the surroundings like an ominous dark cloud.


“This, too, shall pass,” she told herself that line from that famous movie.


Her pet dog Abu barked. As if knowing she would flee. To escape her miseries. Drifting. In work. In stuff. Without even dreams.

That was my story of drifting through life.

Growing up, being loved was the dream. But life’s rejections happened. They were too painful sometimes that they felt dangerous. Any misunderstanding in the family was: dangerous!  Heartache in love life: danger! Challenge in the workplace: risk! The mind spiraled. Out of control. As if always in a severe state of stress. I didn’t know that it was part of life. As the old saying goes, “there is suffering in life.”

The thing was, research showed that when under sustained stress: biologically, the body will also be defensive. As if waiting to battle pathogens. It had disastrous effects on me. Cells aged faster. Health deteriorated. I didn’t need to have annual check-ups. All that was needed was to wait for my yearly sickness. Like clockwork, it will either be a severe flu, viral fever, or hemorrhagic dengue fever. The additional warning signs were my liver problems, prolonged menstrual bleeding, difficulty breathing, and pimple breakouts. I even stopped dreaming…especially of being loved.

But six years ago, I started a healing journey. It brought me to the Pranic Healing school. A world of life energy. Where it taught me how to use energy (prana) to heal, the Meditation on Twin Hearts, and other teachings, especially Arhatic Yoga. That pain, like rejection, maybe a redirection; to what was essential.

Yes, life’s cycle of ups and downs continues. Pains. Failures. But I started dreaming again. To live better. And this time, to love better. Slowly, the mundane became extraordinary. The temporary fixes in people and things got disentangled. I could breathe better. Even if walking up the stairs! People noticed that my skin got radiant. The gray in the fingers turned into a pinkish color. As well as my lips.  Subtly felt also was the kindness that came from the words. Surprisingly the heart found love in the family, relationships, and community.

Like this Christmas season. There was deep and miraculous love in knowing about my true nature and where I came from.

And that is why I am excited for you. For embarking on this journey; toward living your dreams. With an aim and personal power. Because you are taking charge of your future. You are investing in yourself and your loved ones for the long term. In one that’s permanent, in what powers dreams to reality.  See you inside.

Unleash Your Potential

November 26, 2022 Leave a comment
Pranic Healing

By Madeline Retuta, M.D.


Being a medical doctor, a wife, and a parent, I always believed that I have a fulfilled the milestones mostly expected from one’s life journey.  I was happy and content.

When I learned about Pranic Healing, my eyes were opened to a wider perspective.  I gradually developed a consciousness of endless possibilities.  While my life was good enough, learning the simple but effective teachings made me more aware that there is more to life than what I had.  I realized how small my world was.

Case in point, I never knew I had a knack for business. Our family was  able to acquire in a few real estate properties, an additional house, and lands.  We bought  these properties without having a clear plan on what to do with them.

I used to be a government employee.  My income was limited to my salary, but as I pursued the Financial management courses in the Pranic Healing school such as the  Spiritual Business ManagementPranic Feng Shui, and Kriyashakti, I learned that  we can have even more abundance and prosperity if we have a channel to materialize these. The courses were either 1-2 days; and for  the enrichment course on Applied Spiritual Technology, a 4-day course.

Here, I gained insight on  what to do with our properties.   I can turn these  into income-generating assets.  As my first business endeavor, I did not really know where and how to start.  There were times that I would sit in the middle of the building to visualize what I wanted to happen and feel the surroundings.  Lo and behold!  My thoughts would just flow creatively.  This started our Real Estate Leasing business, by providing accommodations to tourists in our area, which is the Surfing Capital of the North.  The business was an instant hit.  We had a continuous stream of clients.  Customers were not only satisfied but left our place clean, grateful, appreciative, and delighted.  The following year, we acquired an adjacent property.  Another building that is perfectly fit and designed for the same purpose, without much effort.  The whole family is happily on board with the business project.  Soon after, the children took the reins in managing our business.

Operating the business at a higher level of consciousness, that is, it is beyond just the monetary benefits, but it serves as an avenue for creativity, much gratitude, learning, enhancing relationships and doing service.  The income generated enabled us to tithe, give, and share more than we used to, and to take care of other people.  We tithe diligently   out of  appreciation and gratitude  for what we have in life.  It is in doing business that we learned that it is in allowing other people to earn and  make money  that we can have more.  We  also bless other people’s livelihoods a lot, and it works!  Money just flows!

      Pranic Healing helps unleash one’s potential to limitless possibilities — more than one can ever imagine.  It makes life more colorful, interesting, and prosperous.  According to MCKS, “Things happen because we will them to happen.

Creation is done by the Will influencing the Inner Inner World.”     I learned all of these in Pranic Healing.  You, or anyone  can learn it too.

I Got My Health Back Through Pranic Healing

Pranic Healing

By Father Paulo Da Costa Freitas, FdCC

Prior to the Basic Pranic Healing Course last August 2022, I was diagnosed with liver fibrosis.  I have always felt dizzy since 2012.  I was unable to celebrate the Holy Mass in big churches.  My stomach felt bloated and pain reached my back and my head.  I had no balance.  I had difficulty sleeping.  I was also diagnosed with gastritis.  I felt a lot of physiological and psychological symptoms which my doctors had trouble treating.

I first heard about Pranic Healing in 1998 when I was having my formation in New Manila Canossians Sons of Charity. Gratefully, I was then invited to a Basic Pranic Healing Course. After the course, I did Meditation on Twin Hearts regularly and self-healing every day.  Finally, there was no longer dizziness.  I was able to celebrate the Holy Mass in big churches.  I have more balance.  I can stand steadily.  I started to sleep well.

My realizations:  First, I am able to help heal myself through Pranic Healing.  Second, I experienced how difficult life is to be unhealthy– I cannot move.  I cannot do anything. Hence, I want to help others.  I want to be a healer.   I have been there.

I felt more empowered when I learned about Pranic Healing.  I can now help more people.

Miracles Through Pranic Healing and Meditation

November 10, 2022 Leave a comment
pranic healing

by Madeline Retuta, M.D.

Several years ago, I was diagnosed with cervical disc desiccation, meaning the cervical or the 1st seven (7) spine in the neck region has become dehydrated reducing the flexibility and height of the disc. It is normal to wear and tear as part of the aging process. It manifested as a burning pain in my neck, and upper back, numbness, and weakness on my face and scalp radiating down my right shoulder, arms, hands, and legs. I was then in my early 50s.  There were times when I would almost fall due to sudden weakness in my affected leg, and the burning pain sensation in my back was bothersome.  It is not fatal but debilitating. I was informed that there is no treatment except for pain relievers, some exercises, or cervical injections- medical interventions that I knew would only provide temporary relief.

As a Pranic Healer I am aware that my condition is brought about by the malfunctioning of my chakras or energy centers, and by my prolonged improper emotions as well as the quality of blood circulation and the other systems in my body, resulting in the disorder.

At that time, I have been doing regular Meditation on Twin Hearts             (MTH). After a few months of doing the Meditation, I gradually was able to go about my daily routines without being bothered. It was then that I realized that the intensity of the pain and numbness has been substantially reduced, allowing me to function normally. Experiencing this benefit,   I did the practice even more intently by imagining and affirming that my physical and energy bodies be cleansed and purified.

I am grateful that I am a Pranic Healer and that I learned about MTH. I didn’t have to endure pain, be debilitated, unnecessarily; or take medications for life.

Where medical intervention ends, Pranic Healing perfectly complements. At times, it can be the only choice.  Having been healed completely of this condition even made me a better person, appreciating my health as I experienced adversity.  It made me more compassionate toward those who have been suffering from chronic debilitating illnesses. It is a saving grace. I have been free from this condition for several years now up to the present. It is one of the many miracles I have received in my practice.

Yes. We have a choice. We can choose Pranic Healing. I’m glad I did. What do you choose?

On Karma

November 3, 2022 Leave a comment
pranic healing

By Paulyn

(Originally posted at

Before Pranic Healing, I seldom or did not do service.  If someone needs help, I would prefer to donate.  Service was not me.  

A lot has changed since I joined the Pranic Healing community in February 2021 and became an Arhatic Yoga practitioner in June 2021. 

I have learned so much from the teachings, courses, and books in Pranic Healing (PH) and Arhatic Yoga (AY).

Since I took the Basic Pranic Healing class, I started to do the Meditation on Twin Hearts daily — once or twice a day.  This helped me develop self-awareness.  Slowly, I was able to regulate my emotions.  I became more patient with others. Meditation on Twin Hearts helped me slow down and become more aware of the people around me.  

Then, I learned about the Law of Karma.  

“Just as you create your present condition, you create your future through your present deeds.” (Grand Master Choa Kok Sui)

The philosophy of karma is essentially based on the concept that what we give is what we will receive. If a person does something with intention, good or bad, the karmic effect will return tenfold or more. 

The law of karma is “self-determining” and “self-directing” which means “what goes around, comes around.”

We cannot blame anyone for the problems and challenges that we are facing. 

In my case, I cannot blame anyone.

I had a lot of setbacks before PH — family, finances, and relationships. Bottomline: No one else is to blame for everything happening in our life.

In our Pranic healing courses, Grand Master Choa Kok Sui (GMCKS) points out the importance of regulating and modifying our actions to generate good karma. 

We can neutralize our bad karma through service and tithing.

GMCKS has written, “Doing service develops the heart. Doing service accelerates spiritual development. It is faster to develop than meditating alone in the mountains.”

This was also emphasized by Master Faith Sawey in the courses and her nurturing sessions.  Initially, I didn’t understand what they were talking about.  Now, after being an AY for more than a year and serving in any way I can and in everything that I do—

I finally understood what this means.  

Initially, I did lots of services because I wanted to neutralize all the negative karma or things happening in my life. In this way, I can experience more positive karma, more peace, and more happiness in my life. 

Now, things have changed. I serve, serve and serve, simply because I want to help others as much as I can.

I feel love not only for my family, loved ones, and friends but even for people I don’t know and even people who treated me badly.  This I have seen several times even with people who treated me unfairly or badly.  I felt and understood where they are coming from.  I felt the love in my heart, understanding, patience, and tolerance of what was happening.  

This was so unlike me before.  

Still, I know that I still have a lot to learn and to know. I am still a work in progress.

Pranic Healing

I’m a student of pranic healing. I can’t say I’m a pranic healer since we were taught that we are but channels of healing by the Divine Source.

Aside from a constant reminder to follow simple instructions as we explore the unlimited universe of energies, we are also encouraged to be discerning. Not to be blind followers but have that penchant to explore and suspend belief until tested.

So far, I’m enthralled and that is not just because we learn that indeed healing is a gift accessible to anyone as the creation of the Divine Source (Yups! You too can, if you want to. There are courses offered at the Mindanao Pranic Healing Training Center right here in Davao City, starting with the basic course that teaches you straight away how to heal in just two days). The greater awe is in discovering how energies work through numerous books pranic healing founder Master Choa Kok Sui wrote. Master Choa Kok Sui is a Cebuano of Chinese descent, that’s something we Pinoys can be proud of.

Being the bookworm that I am, I’ve been lugging around his books and discovering the deep learnings embedded there in very simple prose and instructions.

Thus, while reading the Advance Pranic Healing manual, a very short entry on “rapid growth” caught my eye because it said, the technique can be used on plants.

As friends and colleagues know, I love plants and planting. But I have black thumbs. My plants are scraggly, barely alive. Rhoda of PTV had a field day laughing at the five leaves of my tanglad plant. I never give up though. I can grow basil and oregano, a feat all my green-thumbed friends scoff at as anyone can do that, they say. If I can hardly make a lemongrass grow, you can imagine the euphoria I get when my basil and oregano grow.

Learning about “rapid growth” applied to plants, I experimented on my barely surviving blue ternate vine and it worked! My vine now is profuse with leaves and has been blooming as well. It’s a celebration.

Except that, it seems that even the weeds on my front yard are just as profuse. I have to experiment some more and figure out how to exclude rapid growth of weeds.

As I wrote earlier, I am but a student who is enjoying miracles and I am so looking forward to higher learnings especially because among these higher learning is… pranic agriculture. There is hope for the black thumbed.
