In order to feel younger, healthier and full of vitality, our life force energy must be at as optimum level as possible. Life force is not physically visible to the naked eye but it is definitely felt. Almost everyone is born with an incredible amount of life force. Over time, it becomes depleted if we do not consciously nurture and sustain it. With a depleted life force we become ill and less able to return ourselves to vitality, therefore it is enormously important that we engage in practices on a daily basis to encourage the flow and expansion of the life force energy that animates and electrifies our body.
Here are a number of enjoyable life-giving practices to increase and sustain our life force energy.
1) Walk barefoot on the bare earth or grass as much as possible.
“Prana contained in the ground is called ground prana or ground vitality globule. This is absorbed through the soles of the feet. This is done automatically and unconsciously.” — Choa Kok Sui in Miracles through Pranic Healing: Practical Manual on Energy Healing.
2) Practice prayanayama or pranic deep breathing. Conscious breath can be cleansing as it helps to detoxify the body and invigorate the spirit.
According to Master Choa Kok Sui, pranic breathing is accomplished by:
- Touching your tongue to your palate
- Breathing through your abdomen and through the nostrils
- Inhaling slowly and holding for one count
- Exhaling slowly and holding for one count
- Being sure not to over-expand or over-contract the abdomen

Choa Kok Sui also says:
“Pranic breathing energizes you to such an extent that your aura temporarily expands by 100% or more. The inner aura expands to about eight inches or more, the health aura to about four feet or more, the other aura to about two meters or more.”
3) Sit in a nature setting and absorb the energies present with your intention. Notice that any time spent in nature is healing, nurturing and reviving. If you even have a problem you cannot solve, go into nature and be open to a solution.
4) Eat the real earth nutrients of living food. Eating uncooked produce is literally like eating light. Living, uncooked fruits and vegetables actually contain “trapped light” which you can absorb into your body to elevate your life force energy.
5) Drink pure water. Water absorbs prana from sunlight and this prana is welcomed by the body.
6) Consciously absorb the life force energy of the sun, moon and galaxy. Regularly spend short periods of time in the sun and take walks under the moonlight. The cosmic chi will be absorbed through the pores of your skin and also through your eyes. Your body will take this nourishing chi and light energy into the brain circulating it through the pineal, pituitary and hypothalamus glands.
7) Hug a tree. Literally, hug a tree often. Trees are healers and share healing fluids which is why Ageless La Cure skincare uses beech tree bud extract (in Algae Mousse), guaiac wood essential oil (in Nourishing Cream) and shea butter from the shea nut tree (in Nourishing Cream, PHYTO Peel and Pigmentation Cream).
“Certain trees such as pine trees or old and gigantic healthy trees exude a lot of excess prana. Tired or sick people benefit much by lying down or resting underneath these trees.” — Choa Kok Sui in Miracles through Pranic Healing: Practical Manual on Energy Healing.
“Trees and all plant life are living fields of intelligence that just happen to exist within the confines of a different molecular structure than the human bio-system. They operate via a group consciousness and are not as individualized as we are and they love receiving our carbon dioxide as much as we benefit from breathing in the oxygen they generate.” —Jasmuheen in The Madonna Frequency & the Food of Gods.
8) Walk in the wind to absorb wind prana. It's invigorating, cleansing and rejuvenating to your being.
9) Ask in a prayerful tone to feel and receive chi energy. The universe will bow to your prayer.
11) Practice Tai Chi and/or Qi Gong.
“What sets Tai Chi apart from other exercise programs is its internal work. In a series of postures, or forms, the mind and body work in unison to move Chi (vital energy) from one part of the body to the next.” — John Young Man So in Tai Chi for Everyone: A Life-long Exercise Program for Longevity and Health.
12) Learn to feel your chakra system.
“Chakras are personal energies. They are energy vortices, or wheels, inside the body that receive and moderate universal life force energies, or chi. Each chakra acts as a kind of valve or regulator and controls the flow of energy through our system. The universal life force (chi) enters the body through the chakra at the top of the head and travels down the spinal column to the other chakras. When we are living in harmony with the Universe, these vortices, or valves or chakras, are open and allow an abundant flow of chi energy.” — Connie Johnson in Spiritual Concepts for a New Age: Psychic Serenity in the Human Experience
13) Visualize the flow of chi increasing and flowing unimpeded in your body. KNOW that this is happening.
“With consistent practice one can visualize Chi flowing inside the cavities and meridians of the body, creating a sense of health and well-being.” — John Young Man So in Tai Chi for Everyone: A Life-long Exercise Program for Longevity and Health.
14) Receive chi energy from an energy medicine practitioner.
“Prana can also be projected to another person for healing. Persons with a lot of excess prana tend to make other people around them feel better and livelier. However, those who are depleted tend to unconsciously absorb prana from other people.” —Raphael Merlotte in The World Before Lies. First ed. 2012. Print.
