The first thing that strikes you about Master Stephen Co is his dynamic energy, his sense of humor and his saying it like it is. A mesmerizing speaker, he also found himself as part of a CBS Special investigative report, when he healed a woman who turned out to be the daughter of an Emmy award winning producer.
But that is not something Stephen Co, an analytical, skeptical engineer would have imagined a place he would be in many years ago.
‘I grew up in the Philippines and went to Catholic school and followed the sacraments. But if you are looking for someone to tell you, that he was always on quest for enlightenment, or dabbling in alternative healing, then I’m the wrong man. My only exposure was to the Catholic Church and to fortune tellers my mother often took me to. By the time I grew up I became an engineer and a Baptist. And for me, anything that didn’t come from the Church came from the other side.’
And yet Stephen Co remembers a strange prophecy made by a fortune teller when he was 13 and dragged again to the man by his mother. “He kept pointing to some triangles and other lines on my hands and kept saying to her-do you see this and do you see that? All I wanted was to go home. But then he said something that has remained in my memory to this day. He said -'When this boy is 24 years old, something more precious than gold will fall in his hands. And it was when I was 24 and my wife broke her hip that I found Pranic Healing.'”
The doctor told Stephen Co it was a compound fracture and it would be 3 to 4 months before his wife would walk again. “At that time I took a visualization class called Silva Method, and there someone told me about Pranic Healing. I said - 'okay, I’m skeptical but I will try it if it heals my wife.'”
Stephen Co went to the class. The teacher was Master Choa Kok Sui.
