World-renowned energy healer and internationally recognised humanitarian, philosopher, teacher and inventor PATRICK SAN FRANCESCO began healing at four in his hometown, Bangalore. Initially, the healing consisted of demanding that God should “take care” of those around him who were ailing. In hindsight, Patrick attributes this to his childlike innocence that invested a complete and total faith in the Divine. Eventually, the word of his healing spread and soon more and more patients were knocking on his door. His knowledge of human anatomy, diseases ailments, as well as life situations, is attributed to his knowledge of law and medicine.
One day in 1987, at 30, Patrick began to see colours of the energy and their specific tasks in nature. By harnessing these colours, he realised that he could use these energies like a “toolbox” to heal the human body. With these colours and their unique properties, he began teaching others how to heal.
Today, Patrick travels the world; healing, teaching his unique energy healing techniques in workshops, imparting his philosophy through talks on higher consciousness and initiating projects to empower the underprivileged. He is the creator of Apphealing, the world’s first multi-dimensional energy healing app. Applying his philosophy of, ‘the greatest good for the greatest number’, Patrick is dedicated to addressing the basic issues facing humanity.
In an interview with SAURABH TANKHA, the chairperson of Samarpan Foundation in India, USA, South Africa and Malawi says nutritious food, drinking water, healthcare, shelter and education should be the birthright of every human being.
Tell us about your invention, Whole Food, that says Humans Can Also Eat Grass.
The concept that man has to grow or cultivate his food seemed ‘out of balance with Nature’. No other living creature does that so why should man? Surely, the Universe in its fairness would not have singled man out to grow his own food. That set me thinking that there must be some form of nutrition that is readily available for free and does not have to be cultivated. I began looking for a type of vegetation that was available in regions inhabited by man. This vegetation had to fulfill three vital criteria before it could be declared as the answer to world hunger. First, it must be available everywhere. Second, it should meet the dietary needs of humans. Third, it must be digestible by humans. The obvious answer was grass! Grass can be found everywhere, even in the oases in the desert.
Looking at the mighty bison whose sole diet is grass answered the question of the its wholesomeness as a source of nutrition
Looking at the mighty bison whose sole diet is grass answered the question of the its wholesomeness as a source of nutrition. However, the answer to the question of why the grass was unable to be digested by the human alimentary system lay in the fact that humans don’t have a rumen (a second stomach). The solution to the problem was in replicating the process in the second stomach. By cooking grass in a pressure cooker for 20 minutes or in a saucepan for two hours, the cellulose in the grass broke down releasing the nutrients for digestion. Besides grass is an extremely fibrous leaf making it difficult for humans to chew and swallow. This was solved by pulverising cooked grass in a domestic blender or by grinding it in a manual stone grinder.
You claim this complete Whole Food is US Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA). Is this accepted globally or will it have to pass through necessary tests in every country?
Despite the fact that grass is a proven complete food for cattle, it remained to be seen if it was equally wholesome for humans. The processed (cooked and pulverised) grass was tested in an FDA recognised laboratory to ascertain its nutrient value as per the US RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance) and was proven to meet all the RDA requirements for human consumption. The grass was also screened for toxicity and certified as safe for humans. Every country has its own RDA guidelines and the authorities of that country should process and subject the grass to testing as per their guidelines. That said, the US has some of the most stringent and exacting RDA standards in the world.
The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World 2020 report, 14% of Indian population is undernourished. In addition, 51.4% of women in reproductive age between 15 to 49 years are anaemic. Further according to the report 34.7% of the children aged under five in India are stunted (too short for their age), while 20% suffer from wasting, meaning their weight is too low for their height. Have you connected with the Indian government with this solution?
When I invented low cost, environment-friendly and earthquake-resistant PET bottle/ nylon fish net building technique, the authorities brushed it off despite CSIR India having certified it
Till date I have not approached the Government of India or any other government with my findings. When I invented my PET bottle/ nylon fish net building technique which was earthquake resistant (up to 9.8 Richter), low cost and environment-friendly (using discarded PET bottles as bricks), my efforts to interest the authorities were brushed off despite the fact that the technique was tested and certified by CSIR India. Hence, I have resorted to publishing my inventions on YouTube. I have also invented a self-irrigation technique for afforestation programmes, the details are available on my website.
Is there a successful formula to lead a happy and healthy life?
Do everything in moderation. Look behind you (past) with understanding, look before you (future) with faith, look around you (present) with love!
How do you win at life?
For there to be a winner, there must be a loser. The winner makes the loser and the loser makes the winner. Both are equally important to each other. Winning is a matter of perspective. A man who is worth a billion dollars and is trying to earn his second billion is a poor man. A man who has ten dollars and doesn’t want more is indeed a rich man. Speak less listen more, for when you speak you learn nothing, when you listen you may learn something.
What is life and what is death?
Life is a journey that is travelled by the soul in the vehicle that is one’s mortal body. Death is the expansion of one’s consciousness beyond the mortal body towards infinity.
What is me and what is not me?
All are one! We are like drops of water and the Universe is the ocean.
Review the choices and decisions that brought you to your present position. Be sure not to make similar choices
How do you change the path of life?
To seek change is to admit to dissatisfaction with the present. Review the choices and decisions that brought you to your present position. Be sure not to make similar choices. If it is materialistic gain that you seek follow your mind. If it is happiness that you seek follow your heart.
Why is there so much discontentment, sorrow and jealousy around?
Man has created a world that has sugar coated words like greed and ambition into words like growth and progress. This constant need to accumulate more and more keeps one on a constant treadmill of following one achievement with another. The irony is that the ultimate goal of happiness is lost whilst pursuing it.
What’s today and what’s tomorrow?
Today is yesterday’s tomorrow. Every day that one has lived is ‘yesterday’s tomorrow’ that he has conquered. Yet he fears the next tomorrow! All that one has is the space between two breaths.
