Working Through the Power of Mind and Soul

The mind works directly with prana, this is the core activity in Usada Prana. Prana is recognized as the driving force behind thoughts, behavior, beliefs, and self-care. 

In principle, the main focus is that activities, attitudes and emotions from the past that are the active forces in the soul, together with the reactions of the present moment can be felt, moved, safely released and understood. 

Pranic emotional expression, when followed by integration activities, results in a stronger connection with oneself and a clearer and more direct connection with those around them. 

If the client becomes low on energy, it can be supported to easily identify creative energy strategies for problem solving. Flowing with transformative energy channeling techniques to the client, preparing to engage with the client's choice intelligence, and being aware of the client's level of engagement, provides a safe containment environment. Usada Prana fosters therapeutic alliances that promote client empowerment and self-responsibility.

Disrupted or incomplete energy processes are at the core of psychological disorders, and the mind is central to psychological healing.

Usada Prana includes a variety of experiential approaches that can explore the energy, somatic and attitude patterns behind conflict, difficult behaviors and attitudes toward oneself. Many of these causes stem from an unconscious past. They can have a negative effect on the way of life. It often leads to unsatisfactory, and even destructive, emotional and relational patterns. 

The basic foundation of Usada Prana Bali's Inner Healing is that the soul has self-activated, built in, corrective, healing impulses and organizing principles. 

This impulse seeks ways to release dynamic tension, and the need for release is manifested as a somatic healing effort. 

Like many developments in psychotherapy and counseling that have developed over the last decades, Usada Prana Bali has an intra-psychic focus and supports the exploration of, and reconnection between, body, mind and spirit. 

It can activate the innate healing potential of the soul, the autonomic healing tendency first described as 'individuation'. Cooperation with the natural movement of prana in the soul towards healing and wholeness of prana is paramount in Usada Prana Bali.

1. The Usada Combination Method with Modern Science

The combination of traditional and modern methods in Balinese Usada Prana practice can be categorized into several focus areas: building connections, developing self-awareness, processing emotions, transformative learning through the use of symbols and metaphors, increasing self-awareness, supporting integration, and developing emotional literacy and life skills. inner.

2. Build connections

Activities to build connections are most relevant in the initial consultation and opening phase of subsequent therapy sessions, particularly in developing therapeutic alliances, expanding emotional literacy and encouraging clients to talk about themselves. Connection building activities include discussion questions.

3. Develop self-awareness

Strengthening the capacity for self-reflection can be achieved, with relative ease, through activities that encourage the use of intra-personal intelligence. Healers can support this reinforcement by increasing clients' awareness of somatic responses, helping them become more receptive to acknowledging influences, and becoming more aware of beliefs and cognitive patterns. Specific self-awareness activities include the use of relaxation and meditation, body focus with energy mapping, exploring the mind, and using metaphors to illustrate internal states.

4. Mental Processing

The expressive use of body, mind and spirit allows completion of unprocessed and unexpressed reactions, using projective externalization followed by integrative activities. Activities that can be used to catalyze emotional processing include: releasing negative energy using pranayama and bio-energy exercises. 

Modalities used in this way include visualization, use of symbols to indicate positive personal assets, role play and exercises to support reconstruction of life narratives.

5. Support Integration

Throughout the therapeutic relationship, and especially towards the end of therapy sessions involving mental energy, there is a strong focus on integration and closure activities. Integration activities are designed to support linking right-brain experiences into left-brain language. They support the connection between mind and body, and also strengthen the boundaries between 'process' and everyday relationships. It uses reflection, relaxation, focus on problem solving and planning, and meditative visualization.

6. Intra-personal Skills

Primarily for relating and understanding oneself, intra-personal skills include: awareness and self-knowledge through somatic focus, focusing on emotions, observing positive and negative beliefs about oneself, sensitivity to energy, and the ability to work with relaxation.

Skills for relating to the inner world can be developed through reviewing behaviors and beliefs with guided reflection, developing personal mythology, awareness of cultural influences and cultural mythology. Connecting with and dialogue with lesser known levels of the soul may also include connecting with intuition or inner guidance.

Self-expression and communication skills, including the ability to feel and find emotions in the body, recognize and name emotions, communicate about them, speculate about their causes and express or process them in an appropriate way. Emotional literacy supports emotional healing, therapeutic release, integration of emotional experiences, and the ability to regulate the expression of feelings outside the therapy room.

There is a lot of support for clients to be independent and motivated. They may gradually learn to feel energy, and any increase in energy, and how to express it in a positive way. After processing the vital energy, there is a focus on the client's self-evaluation, often using visualization and reflection questions, which can guide the creative use of energy and the formulation of new strategies. Usada Prana Bali can build clients' skills in reconnecting their hopes, dreams and positive directions for the future.

7. Transpersonal Skills

Dealing with existential or transpersonal concepts and experiences may arise spontaneously during therapy. For example, when with connection and expression, spiritual interest arises. The therapist may invite clients to share spiritual beliefs and practices, and recommend being sensitive and familiar with these. 

The therapist's personal spiritual orientation is usually not shared with the client. However, if the client refers to a particular belief framework or supportive belief or practice system, this interest may be withdrawn. A clear message will be conveyed that this will be treated with respect, and it is safe to share sensitive or valuable spiritual experiences.

The use of art, symbols, and metaphors can help clients develop language for questions, experiences, and spiritual purposes. 
The skills to recognize, experience, formulate and share metaphysical concepts and experiences grow naturally when the environment is supportive.
