 Prana is the universal principle of energy or force. The present study seeks to understand the experiences of participants when they perceived the pranic energy between their hands. Exploratory research design was used. 178 participants with a mean age of 26.8 years took part in this study. In Session One, participants were asked to view their hands and record their observations in an open-ended questionnaire. In session two, participants were guided to feel the prana between the hands and recorded their experiences using the same open-ended questionnaire as conceptualized by Master Choa Kok Sui. The results were analysed using Contingency Coefficient analysis and Chi Square tests. Results revealed that all the respondents felt the pranic energy between their hands and expressed their experiences. 60.7% of the respondents were feeling the prana in palm and finger tips. 55.6% of respondents felt warm sensation in their hands. Sensation of warmth was significantly more in post-session, compared to pre-session (CC=.573, p=.000). 78.1% of respondents felt magnetic force between hands, 42.7 % of them felt tingling / electric sensation, 31.5% felt energized. In addition, 52.8% of the respondents felt relaxed after the sensation of prana. Evidence from this study indicates that Prana which exists in the plasmic state can be felt by anybody with proper guidance and training.
