In scriptures, the human body is often referred to as the temple of God. Yet, it is quite an uncommon privilege for any soul to attain this sacred abode that houses the Divine, as it is truly a blessing to be reborn as a human being. On several occasions, Supreme Master Ching Hai has spoken about the rarity of this phenomenon:

To be reincarnated in the human world is hard. You have to have enough Human Quality. You have to have affinity with the parents and with the society, with the people around which you are born. Very difficult. To be a human, you need some merit. You have done something good in the past in order to be able to pick a human birth.

As a living temple of God, the human body is fully equipped with miraculous wonders that can be awakened in those who are spiritually conscious and have complete faith in the Creator of all life. Inedia, Latin for “fasting,” is the human ability to live without food. Since time immemorial, there have always been individuals who can sustain themselves on prana, or the vital life force. Through the grace of the Providence, inediates, people who follow a food-free lifestyle, can draw the energy from nature to nourish themselves:

They live on the chi from the ground, or from the forest, and from the sun and from the air. They make use of all that. Or they live on love, on faith alone. These individuals are known as breatharians (pranarians or inediates), solarians, or waterians, and they come from all walks of life, from different cultures, and all corners of the world.

Indeed, the possibilities and miracles in this life as our benevolent Creator has designed for us are endless; we only need to connect within to recognize our abounding largess as God’s children. Supreme Master Ching Hai has lovingly recommended a weekly series on Supreme Master Television to introduce those individuals of the past and present who have chosen to live food-free on Earth. May their spiritual stories enthrall you; may hearts be opened, and horizons be expanded. We now invite you to join us for part 1 of our 4-part program entitled, “Reine-Claire Lussier: Prana for a Busy Lifestyle,” on Between Master and Disciples.

On our planet Earth, there exist individuals who choose to do away with physical food and rely on prana, or the cosmic energy, for their nourishment. Today we travel to Canada to meet a very busy pranarian with an active lifestyle.

My name is Reine-Claire and I am the director of the School of Life Consciousness, a place that was created to accommodate those who want to make a profound transformation process, people who are aware of what is happening on the planet and who want to participate in the awakening of humanity.

Sixty-three-year-old Reine-Claire has lived as a pranarian for the past 10 years. However, it wasn’t a lifestyle choice that she thought she would have chosen when she was younger. In fact, nothing in her background had prepared her for a life without food.

I have a very ordinary life with a very ordinary family in an ordinary city. Nothing special, a great big family, a most ordinary and normal education, nothing could have prepared me for what I am living today. I never planned nor desired for anything that is happening today in my life. I just kept following the thread of the inward development of my soul. This was the result. So I studied normally, I was a teacher, so I finished my courses at the university. I taught children, I taught adults – I taught from kindergarten to university. Then I left the institutional environment because at that time I didn’t know the word “matrix.” But I felt it inside – I was living it – so I left that world.

Reine-Claire hadn’t intended to become a pranarian, but by listening to her inner Self and inner guides, she was slowly led down the food-free path. Her first step in this direction began with the elimination of all animal products from her diet.

I always followed what I felt inside me. I had a very traditional education within a religion, but I left. I left everything, quietly, gradually, simply by following the inner calling; my soul was pushing. So, obviously I changed my diet; it’s been a long time since I started, at the age of thirty, to change my diet, which was basically pure carnivore.

Moreover, life has presented me with events which pushed me to make necessary changes. So I started to become vegetarian, then raw food, then I decreased a lot, decreased the amount I was eating because when we eat raw food, when we eat living foods, we don't need to eat much. It had already been several years that I ate very, very little and lived alone. I thought I had mastered my body because I needed very little and I was satisfied with very little.

Moreover, it was easy for me to refuse anything that people offered me. I really thought I had achieved mastery of my body. I was well, but when I met my partner who entered my life, I realized then that I had not mastered my body because just a simple, very human and emotional impact made me change my menu and eat more than necessary, and I could simply no longer continue to respect what I was doing. And then I saw that I had not mastered my body. It was an illusion; it was just easier to live alone. If I did not eat certain things, I just didn’t buy them, but when they were in my house I could not not eat them.

So that really shocked me to finally see that I had not mastered my body. Then I simply got angry. I got really angry and it made me realize that I needed to do something to regain control. As I was already in contact with my Light Guides for several years, I just asked for help from my Light Guides; I asked them what I could do. I had already known for a long time about prana, to add prana in my life, to add prana as food. It happened slowly. But then when I got angry, I stopped eating altogether for a day or two.

I didn’t know what to do but I knew something had to happen in my life, so I asked the Guides to advise me, and they suggested that I try to transform my biological mechanism to a pranic mechanism. And since I trusted these Guides, because they had been guiding me for years on all levels, I played the game. But it was not a decision because I didn’t know… because I didn’t know… I thought I would do that for a certain period, for some time. Of course, every day I saw what was happening within my body: I saw how good I felt, and the vision it brought me; the intensification of all the faculties that I already had; the heart that opened, and I saw my biology changing and I simply thought it was interesting.

But I never made a decision, a final decision; I just lived from day to day. Then I applied a sentence that I wrote in one of our books, and the Guides told us, "Do not be pranic beings but living beings who find their way step by step, at every step." So that's what I did. I never took a final decision. That's why I experienced freedom, truly experienced freedom with that diet. Because it’s a choice every day and then there's no one forcing me, there is no one to tell me what to do. It is I who decides each day of my wellbeing, and I can guide people around me because I am starting from my own experience, not from principle or knowledge. So that's basically how I got to eating prana for a decade now.

Reine-Claire explains what can potentially occur during the transitioning process from consuming food to living on prana, wherein most of the obstacles are manifested at the mind level. It’s really about unraveling mechanisms enshrined in the human body for millennia. Then there is a twisting/wrenching action that sets in the matter and it's hard to describe because it is something that lives inside the cells, and it's different for each person, so I could never accurately describe what takes place.

But physically for the body, it is not so difficult. There comes a time when it may take a few days, maybe a week, I can say, of weakness when the mind tries to convince the physical body that what it is doing is not right, “It's dangerous and it will lose energy, and then it might even die.” But this lasts a few days. However, the “torture” I would say is more at the emotional and mental level of the whole game – that these bodies do everything they can to keep us within the old structures, in the old mode of operation.

Every time someone manages to change the biological mechanics into pranic mechanics, it affects all of humanity. At the atomic level it affects all of humanity because we are all connected to each other in energy. So, one person makes a change and all of humanity feels it. That's why even I, consciously, there was no human person who advised me or encouraged me to do this but I know that I received in my cells signals of many humans who have done it before me or at the same time as me, and that's it.

Reine-Claire believes that the pranarian lifestyle is more than just ceasing the consumption of physical food; it’s a journey of personal transformation that one chooses to undertake.

Prana is the vital energy. It is in everything; there is nothing alive that does not contain prana. But one thing is certain is that neither God nor angel will come and put prana in our body. It must be the human being who decides, who chooses. It is a voluntary process; it’s a process of awakening or profound personal choice. Unless you have received a special grace – certain humans have received it to become examples for others – but in the normal case of a person who has eaten for 20 years, 30 or 40 years, there is no angel who will come and pour prana into the mouth or through the nose. It really is a personal journey, a very personal choice, to transform the body; and it’s a total transformation. Because it touches on the survival codes of the physical body, so the body rebels, and most people stop at that stage.

What were some of the symptoms that Reine-Claire experienced when she switched to living on prana ten years ago? Join us again next Sunday to find out.
