Excerpt from The Prana Program research manual
THE PRANA PROGRAM AND THE BRAIN (from chapter 2)
Q: Can you share a little more about general brain wave research?
A: Information on http://www.mhhe.com/biosci/ap/vdgconcepts/student/olc/n-reading13.html says that: “Brain waves are recordings of fluctuating electrical changes in the brain. To obtain such a recording, electrodes are positioned on the surface of a surgically exposed brain (an electrocardiogram, ECG) or on the outer surface of the head (an electroencephalogram, EEG). These electrodes detect electrical changes in the extracellular fluid of the brain in response to changes in potential among large groups of neurons. The resulting signals from the electrodes are amplified and recorded. Brain waves originate from the cerebral cortex, but also reflect activities in other parts of the brain that influence the cortex, such as the reticular formation. Because the intensity of electrical changes is directly related to the degree of neuronal activity, brain waves vary markedly in amplitude and frequency between sleep and wakefulness.” Study of brain wave patterns have led to the discovery of the Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta fields.
Q: Why is refining brain wave activity so important in The Prana Program?
A: Our experience has been that when the brain wave patterns move into Alpha, then Theta, then Delta patterns, many other realities begin to emerge (for example, the ability to be healthily nourished by Divine Love – chi or prana – comes from being anchored in the Theta/Delta worlds). The more we increase the pranic flow through a bio-system, the better it functions and brain wave activity automatically changes via the lifestyle we need to do this. Meditation brings us through the Alpha-Theta-Delta levels where cosmic particles are more easily magnetized to us.
Q: Can you describe some of the attributes of the different brain wave patterns?
A: With brain wave patterns resonating at 14-30 cycles per second, the Beta field is the field of poverty, violence, social injustice, emotional highs and emotional lows, and is often a field of man-made, self-inflicted chaos and victim consciousness. It is the beat of ‘busy’ness.
Resonating at 8-13 cycles per second, the Alpha field begins to reveal the Zen of life, allowing us down time, to chill out and effectively see and reset the direction of our life and to recognize and assess the imbalances and re-address them, hopefully for the good of all. Time in the Alpha zone via meditation improves our health and happiness levels and is step one in the direct and conscious feeding of our being in a new way.
With brain wave patterns resonating at 4-7 cycles per second, the Theta field brings co-incidences that no longer seem to be random and time spent here attracts events filled with symbolism and deep, meaningful possibilities for it is a field of infinitely creative potential, a field of Grace, true nourishment and love. This is the field through which all Holiness and true messengers come. This is the zone from which all the Holy books were born after being downloaded telepathically from the universal field of Infinite love and wisdom whose main rhythm is Theta.
Resonating at ½ - 3 cycles per second, the Delta fields bring it all, for from its field springs paradise and the ‘garden of Eden’ of the Bible’s God. The Delta zone is also the home of the Elohim and the Archangels and pure love. It is the home from where our supernatural abilities flow and it is where our DOW is anchored to radiate out through our form. It is often accessed in deep meditation and is experienced more powerfully within a toxin free system. This is the field the yogi’s dwell in when they leave their bodies to experience inter-dimensional cosmic traveling.
Q: What role does the pituitary gland play in The Prana Program?
A: As one of the master glands of the body, the eastern mystics found that the pituitary gland produces a food called amrita which they claim is the fountain of youth. When the pituitary gland is stimulated via certain tongue positions and via flooding with violet light and programming with specific intention, it increases its production of amrita which feeds the brain what it needs to simulate the neuro-theology buttons and hence influence brain wave patterns.
Also, according to Ancient Wisdoms, when the pituitary and pineal glands are activated, our brain wave patterns lock themselves more permanently into Alpha spectrum and when they move into Theta and Delta zones we begin to use the rest of our previously under utilized brains.
Q: What role does the pineal gland play in The Prana Program?
A: The pineal gland when stimulated, using similar tools to the above plus other Taoist methods, will increase its production of a substance called pinoline which also feeds the brain and increases the production of the neurohormones DMT and 5-MeO-DMT. When a bio-system is free from physical, emotional and mental toxicity and these hormones are increasing, the system begins to operate in a different way revealing our natural more alchemical type abilities.
Q: Why do we use only 10-20% of our brain capacity?
A: Firstly it only takes a small percentage of our brain to address and fulfill our survival needs. The balance of our brain lies dormant as focusing only on survival restricts our internal pranic flow which in turn restricts what sections of our brain are activated to fulfill their higher potential. What we don’t use in the brain simply lies dormant until we do.
Q: How do we use prana to activate the areas of the brain that we don’t use for physical survival?
A: There are various ways to do this. For example, by flooding our brain with violet light we can feed brain function and stimulate it to respond in a different way but generally these sections of the brain are automatically activated as we recalibrate ourselves via various lifestyle tools and holding certain mindsets.
Q: What about the science of neurotheology?
A: Neurotheology has found that various areas of the brain, when activated by certain procedures, download feelings of bliss, ecstasy, religious fervor and revelation; e.g. the temporal lobe has a joy button, the parietal lobe connects us with feelings of oneness and unity, the occipital lobe allows us to process sacred images. Bliss brain waves can be experienced by the use of mantras, prayer, chanting, meditation, visualization and breathing techniques.
Q: Anything else on the brain that is relevant to The Prana Program?
A: Yes according to research done by the Maharishi and the TM movement, 7000 people holding a constant 8hz brain wave pattern can transform our world into harmony. Increasing the pranic flow automatically increases personal and global harmony as it puts the brain into the 8hz pattern.
PRANA AND DARKROOM TECHNOLOGY
Q: Over the last few years you have begun the practice of darkroom therapy, why is that?
A: According to Mantak Chia, “The darkness actualizes successively higher states of divine consciousness, correlating with the synthesis and accumulation of psychedelic chemicals in the brain. Melatonin, a regulatory hormone, quiets the body and mind in preparation for the finer and subtler realities of higher consciousness (Days 1 to 3). Pinoline, affecting the neuro-transmitters of the brain, permits visions and dream-states to emerge in our conscious awareness (Days 3 to 5). Eventually, the brain synthesizes the “spirit molecules” 5-methoxy-dimethyltryptamine (5-MeO-DMT) and dimethyltryptamine (DMT), facilitating the transcendental experiences of universal love and compassion (Days 6 to 12).” So during a darkroom retreat we can experience the benefits of different brain functions.
Q: You have also been combining this darkroom practice with The Prana Program, how does this work?
A: A darkroom retreat-type situation is a wonderful way to create and/or expand specific internal feeding mechanisms and to check their success as we unhook from all external light and physical food absorption.
Q: What are some at the other benefits of darkroom retreats and The Prana Program that you share there?
A: Apart from what we have already explained, the darkroom experience has numerous benefits for the participant. Firstly it recreates an experience of being in the Divine Mother’s womb from where all light flows, next it eliminates feelings of separation as all you see and/or feel is that you are an individual point of consciousness. While I have spoken at length of my first darkroom experience in the free e-Book “Darkroom Diary Downloads” deprivation of physical sight, like the deprivation of physical food, allows our other bio-system abilities to be revealed especially when we utilize the darkroom time of silence and solitude to explore even deeper the inner planes of consciousness.
PRANA AND THE CELLS
Before we look at things like cellular pulsing and its relevance to The Prana Program, we need to also understand a little more regarding cellular function. The below data is humorous and offered in layman’s terms and comes from Bill Bryson’s book: A Short History of Nearly Everything.
“It starts with a single cell. The first cell splits to become two and the two become four and so on … And every one of those cells knows exactly what to do to preserve and nurture you from the moment of conception to your last breath.”
“You have no secrets from your cells. They know far more about you than you do. Each one carries a copy of the complete genetic code – the instruction manual for your body – so it knows how to do not only its own job but every other job in the body too.”
“Your cells are a country of ten thousand trillion citizens, each devoted in some intensively specific way to your overall well-being. There isn’t a thing they don’t do for you. They let you feel pleasure and form thoughts.”
“Most living cells seldom last more than a month or so, but there are some notable exceptions. Liver cells can survive for years, though the components within them may be renewed every few days. Brain cells last as long as you do. You are issued with a hundred billion or so at birth and that is all you are ever going to get. It has been estimated that you lose five hundred of them an hour, so if you have any serious thinking to do there really isn’t a moment to waste. The good news is that the individual components of your brain cells are constantly renewed so that, as with the liver cells, no part of them is actually likely to be more than about a month old.”
“When cells are no longer needed, they die with what can only be called great dignity. They take down all the struts and buttresses that hold them together and quietly devour their component parts. The process is known as apoptosis or programmed cell death. Every day billions of your cells die for your benefit and billions of others clean up the mess. Cells can also die violently – for instance, when infected – but mostly they die because they are told to. Indeed, if not told to live – if not given some kind of active instruction from another cell – cells automatically kill themselves. Cells need a lot of reassurance.”
“The wonder of cells is not that things occasionally go wrong, but that they manage everything so smoothly for decades at a stretch. They do so by constantly sending and monitoring streams of messages – a cacophony of messages – from all around the body: instructions, queries, corrections, requests for assistance, updates, and notices to divide or expire. Most of these signals arrive by means of couriers called hormones, chemical entities such as insulin, adrenaline, estrogen and testosterone that convey information from remote outposts like the thyroid and endocrine glands. Still other messages arrive by telegraph from the brain or from regional centers in a process called paracrine signalling. Finally, cells communicate directly with their neighbours to make sure their actions are coordinated.”
Q: Apart from being interesting information, what relevance is the above data to The Prana Program?
A: Basically that cells are programmed by hormones, chemicals and others cells and can also be reprogrammed consciously by our mind. They can be cleansed, they can be detoxified if toxic and they can learn to operate in a different way via new specific programming. I also provide the above data as the fact is that there is still so much that is not understood about cellular function.
Advocates of The Prana Program say that prana can deliver all nutrients, all vitamins, proteins and minerals to keep a system healthy and while some may find this difficult to believe, it isn’t when we understand the nature of prana and its violet light essence. Nor is it incomprehensible when we realize as Bill Bryson’s research shares: “You have at least 20,000 different types of protein labouring away inside you and so far we understand what no more than 2 per cent of them do. (Others put the figure at more like 50 per cent; it depends, apparently, on what you mean by ‘understand’).” My point exactly.
Q: Can you discuss cellular pulsing and its impact on The Prana Program?
A: As discussed in my book In Resonance, we know that our cells store memories and emotions and act as our personal internal filing cabinet. We also know that each cell consists of atoms which consist of 99.99% space. We know also that this space is really pure Divine consciousness that is undetectable to the normal scientific measuring scopes, as DOW Power resonates at a frequency too refined to be detected by normal methods. For the purpose of this discussion I would like to call the beat of this Divine consciousness that fills each atom, our internal classical music station.
What I have also come to understand is that the more that our cells are filled with the emotional and mental toxicity of life, the weaker the Divine or classical music pulse in each cell is and yet how well we can be nourished purely by prana is totally dependant on the strength of the Divine pulse in each cell. Again for the purpose of this discussion I would like to refer to this cellular toxicity, that comes from our past emotional experiences and negative mental perceptions in life, as our internal heavy metal music station.
Q: Can you elaborate on this with an example?
A: Imagine two radios standing side by side, both switched on with one tuned to the classical music channel – our Divine pulse; the other tuned to a heavy metal music channel – our collective memory patterns. Assuming a maximum volume of 10, then if the classical music volume is playing at a 1 or a 2 and the heavy metal station is at a volume of 9 then we will definitely end up with the usual range of human limitations, diseases, decay and eventual death. However if these numbers are reversed and the Divine pulse of classical music is at a 7, 8, or 9 volume level and the toxic heavy metal channel is at a 1, 2, 3 volume level then the game and our experience in life becomes very different. A 9 to 1 ratio where the classical beat dominates, allows for pranic nutrition to occur much more easily, so our job is to empty the cells of toxic matter or transmute this ‘heavy metal’ matter into a purer frequency.
I heard someone say recently that research now shares that each cell has 6 gigabyte storage capacity. If this is true then our cells have huge storage capacity for many frequencies.
Q: How can we do this emptying or transmutation?
A: We can do this via a few methods. One is flooding the cells with violet light; the other is emptying the cells of unnecessary dross by freeing ourselves from both karmic debts and energy influences that no longer support us.
We can do this using a meditation with a focus on forgiveness.
An aware metaphysician knows that on one level everything is perfect, that there are no rights, no wrongs, and that all occurs to teach us and help us to develop and grow. However we didn’t always have this type of awareness and so we hold in our cells lifetimes of hurts, angers, judgements and energies that hold a negative charge which takes up unnecessary space in our cells and keeps the heavy metal music station at a higher than healthy volume thus drowning out the more nurturing classical beat. Hence when we apply Forgiveness Meditation (Technique no. 23) in The Food of Gods book, and then flood the cells with the violet light, we reset the volumes to a more supportive pattern so that the cells can be nourished instead of depleted.
Q: You mentioned in your first book that there are changes happening in the DNA of many people, will this make living on a prana only nourishment routine easier?
A: There are many changes happening to many people. Metaphysically, we have within us the lightbody, and this contains encodements of information like files. When we ask the right questions this data is released. A lot of people have gone way beyond the point of asking questions like “why they are here, what’s the meaning of life”, etcetera, and have found very satisfying answers; they have reached an advanced stage of ‘downloading’ their encodements and are now very active in service here. The planet is changing drastically to reflect this.
If enough people believe something is true, it can be, as first in will, then in imagination, then in reality. We can all expand our consciousness and move into another energy band where we are all in harmony, as outer chaos is just a symbol of inner chaos. Part of The Prana Program agenda is about stimulating people’s interest in creating another movie called “Thriving on planet Earth”; not just surviving and we can only do this when all basic human rights are taken care of. Changes in human DNA are reflecting the change in planetary consciousness. A recent survey found that 70% of US citizens admitted to having enjoyed a spiritual experience.
