We have heard of different fad diets such as south beach, vegan, ketogenic, paleo, and intermittent fasting to name just a few. Fasting has been of spiritual importance in most major religions, including Hinduism, Christianity, Islam and Judaism. Mahatma Gandhi referred to fasting as the “the truest prayer.” He conducted fasts throughout his life for religious and political reasons.
Interestingly, I discovered a group called the Breatharians. They claim to stop eating and live off prana, a Sanskrit word that translates to “life air” or “life force, ” also known as qi from the Chinese traditions. It has been reported that two people have proven under scientific scrutiny and video surveillance that they can live without food or water for periods of time defying the laws of physics. This 8 minute YouTube video about Yogi Prahlad Jani, who has not taken food or water for 70 years, a phenomena that many find hard to believe.
According to Israeli author Ray Maor, once Breatharians have trained their body to absorb this energy there is no longer any dependency on food. Many of them continue to taste food for enjoyment, but do not need it for survival.
Like everything today, each has to evaluate and determine the truth for themselves. Apparently breatharianism is about our life force also known as the source, the field, matrix or God. Science identifies the energy as a electromagnetic energy field. The sun radiates electromagnetic waves and sunlight is something we cannot live without. Light is the food for all life on earth. The human body, according to the doctrine of chromotherapy, is basically composed of colors. We believe insufficient sunlight will result in low Vitamin D deficiencies, leading to the development of prostate and breast cancer, memory loss, and an increased risk for developing dementia and schizophrenia. We have been told to wear sunscreen to protect ourselves but what is really happening?
We are light beings with chakras or energy centers and the energy of the sun has the colors of the rainbow. Every creature and plant on earth is engulfed in light that affects its health conditions. Spiritual healing and our health go hand in hand.
Can we live without food? Personally, I would have a hard time but there may be some that can. I also believe there are no limitations to our abilities once we calm our unruly minds and realize our thoughts, emotions and actions create our reality. The world is not as it seems and certainly not what we have been taught. Our physical and metaphysical world are inseparable and we all have the ability to tap into the power within. Believe!!!
