I have heard of at least six meditations/qi-gong that can raise ones body temps. I learned a fairly easy one myself. It's simple.

Begin meditation, only be aware of your breath(ie still that mind)
Now, on the inhalation imagine the dantien(a spot just below the bellybutton) as a glowing orb.
When you exhale, invision yourself belching the darkest thickest smoke possible.

Mentaly you become like a hearth, and low and behold the body temp raises.

Once you do this meditaion enough it can become like a subconsious thought that is on most/all the time. That's how you do it while moving/walking by using a subconsious meditation technique.

This subject has always been of interest to me. I am actually studying Mind Power and I've been studying for about a year now.... The things that I have done seems impossible to most people(skepticks). I have actually been able to focus enough to block out forms of pain such as burning water and fire.

I am new to this site and I am looking for people who share this interest with me in Mind Power as well as having abilities. I'd love to chat with you guys and learn more about your abilities and how you use them as Im sure you'd be intersted in mine and want to learn about how I use them.

Together we can help eachother (the new and the experianced). And remember.... the energy we put out ripples across the entire world... so are you going to send positive energy or negative

For any of you who want to contact me, my msn is and email is I encourage you all to contact me. It's time we fixed the world.

hi there,i was doing my usual search through the paranormal forums when i happened by this great topic,i've had a enthusiasm for the esoteric side of tibetan buddhism myself so hopefully i can help a the main difference between tibetan yoga & all other forms is that the tibetans only use five chakra wheels & not the seven usually associated with other yoga like the indian style that is how you can tell you are dealing with true rare tibetan teachings such as most forms,mudras & exercises in the short path one of the ways in the short path of course being the thunderbolt diamond path.secondly believe it or not there are actually a couple books lying around the house with a very brief description of the beginning exercises of gtummo if you wish to see for yourself i reccomend purchasing herbie brennans tibetan magic & mysticism,great book for beginners,also has a great desription about how the tibetans never do these practices in or near houses becuase of the energies flowing in every house,they believe it can disrupt or even harm their bodies whilst training. i hope that helped at least a little i look forward to your response.

Hey mike, That's great that you're able to block out pain with your mind, I don't know if this is purely psychological or if this is a step further altering also your physiological system (mind over matter) to tolerate both pain and injury.

I'm also very interested in the mind, or the mental aspect of certain skills or abilities. I'm curious about what mental condition or state the mind needs to be in to achieve various abilities. I'm actually currently considering about emailing or meeting up with the past president of the parapsychology association, Stephen E. Braude, for more insight about psychological aspect. He's a professor at a university in my state.

I'm sure you'll be of great help man. I not very knowledgeable in specific sects of yoga, meditation, or those sort of things, maybe bits and pieces of concepts revolving these type of forms. So, by all means share your what knowledge you know and have about the similarity, differences, believes, concepts and practices of the various form.

For example, I don't know much about Tibetan meditation, and for a couple of minute thought you were getting confused with the Tibetan "five-elements system" with popular the "seven-chakra system." Since I believe both system exists in Tibetan Buddhism and Hinduism.

But after further reading, I finally understood what you we're saying about the differences in the chakra system and I got a little explanation as to why as well ( But I'm still not sure originally how many chakra were in the Tibetan's system...well gotta read more on that, so thanks for the book suggestion.

Plus, on the side-note recall there is six types of yoga practiced in Tibetan Buddhism, I know one is Tummo, do you have information on the other five?

And when it comes to meditation, what form of meditation do Tibetan monks it subjective or objective, does it involve visualization or clearance of thoughts (like zen), does it involves mantras....etc...

P.S. thanks for the interesting fact about the Tibetan belief of practicing meditation or yoga indoors. Does that mean there is an underlying belief of Fung Shu in tibet? That's really interesting, and I wonder how many Tibetan believes that.

P.S.S. Anyways would it be okay for you to give maybe a describe to us the conditioning and they type of exercises to achieve g-tummo?

to my good man skyblue....from what i can recall all those mystic practices are basically taught by the masters of the short path side of buddhism or even the religion that was in tibet before buddhism which was called bon.basicalyy the tibetans work to free them selves & all sentient beings from the wheel of karma death & re-birth in one life hence the name "short path" as opposed to the karmic debt that they usually work over many lifetimes in i guess what you would call the usual buddhism. i know of the very basic beginnings of other old rituals & training like the lung-gom-pa runners who could train themselves to run at fast speeds constantly for even days as the stories go.i know of the rite of chod or ritod as spelt in tibetan,a rite which led many a monk to go insane because of the very nature of the ritual,& im sure there's been a few threads on the creation of tulpas or thought forms as we would call them. as for the tibetans never doing gtummo in households because of what they term "foul air" the theory goes that a person goes about their life accruing psychic energies by their thoughts feelings,words,actions & deeds & naturally most of it occurs in a household & because the tibetan way of gtummo requires subtle manipulation of what they call the inner breath or the inner energies the least bit of negative influences would have bad results for the human body. & lastly the exercises of reflection & clearing the mind or as they say quieting the internal chatter come first with a couple of easy exercises designed to quieten the mind then of course its always easier to focus for the visualisation techniques.once again i hope what little i know helped in any way. : )

The yoga instructor, Santiago Dobles, teaches a long distance course via Skype that includes detailed instructions on how to do tummo. The course specifically is for raising the energy up the spine, the kundalini awakening.
