This might look a bit disorganized in presentation at the start because it's a bit of a cut and paste from a reply in another thread, but lately
I've been looking for something to post and decided this was worthy. You gotta get the throat chakra flowing.
If you are familar with Qi Gong
, T'ai Chi
, or any other meditative practise for cultivating energy, then you'll probably know what
I'm talking about.
If you haven't tried condensed breathing its worth a shot. The theory being that chi is like 3rd dimensional energy, but to bypass the laws of the
3rd dimension, the chi has to increase its frequency, it must become JING
To turn chi into jing you can do condensed breathing. You are supposed to start with your hands, then work on feeling it in your arms, and legs,
spine, individual ribs, skull etc, until you are aware of your whole skeleton at once, I guess this takes months and years to achieve to some
When you are aware your bones, just try your hands first, as you inhale, picture the energy in your hands and fingers squeezing towards the bone
marrow, like your skeleton is pulling all the energy in, kind of like the muscles are squeezing.
Jing can be felt as electric shocks. Prolonged telekinesis/psychokinesis excercises where I put much emphasis on the feeling in my hands, I will get
these electric shocks.
From doing some Qi Gong, I've felt rare, no so frequent sparks at my navel / dan tien area.
When doing some Qi Gong excercises, I put my arms to my sides, and elbows bent and palms facing up. As I inhale I contract the muscles in my arms and
visualize gathering chi in my navel (where my hands) are, and as I move my hands up I visualize the chi in the navel rolling in a sphere... as I
exhale, I condense the muscles in my arms and sort of neck, kind of breathing out through my mouth harshly, as I move my hands (palms down this time),
picturing the ball of chi rolling the other way. Picture the movement being graceful but powerful. Much emphasis on thoughts of energy and raw power.
Kind of like rolling dough, you know? Squeezing it all together into a round ball.
Absorbing surrounding energy
Another favourite of mine, I suggest you sit down and relax/ meditate for a least 10 minutes first, just to get you in the right awareness / mind...
Close your eyes, while sitting in a chair or standing... as you inhale deeply, imagine (BUT FEEL, really FEEL it).. feel/imagine energy comming
through your body from all angles, like through your skin, like your just sitting in an electrical ocean of it and your pulling it in from everywhere,
not necessarily sending it to a specific area, just bring it in man, into the cells. Let it saturate your whole system with healing, abundant
I've been able to fend off mental and bodily fatigue this way as well. High positive emotions also helps to stir up and elevate energy to high
levels, you might feel a tingling all over your body, kundalini rising
etc. Usually to get this I think about my purpose and all the positive
things I can for the world and it gives me this surge, while sitting, walking etc.
* I just wanted to note on pulling energy from everywhere in the above excercise. It also helps to harmonize. Your cells all have sentience of their
own, try and talk to them subconsciously. Tell them to energize, work together and communicate, tell them to crystallize beautifully and efficiently
for energy transference. (I'm thinking of positive intention here and how it crystallizes water). I'm just doing the same to my body, and try to do
the same to things I intend to affect.
You can also try breathing short and rapid breaths, while maintaining a rhythm. In seconds you might feel a cold rush come over your body, and your
head might feel strange as your are filled with a surge of oxygen.
Standing out in the sun and absorbing the rays through a similar method mentioned above can be quite energizing. Smile at the sun and think about its
energy abundance to sustain a solar system.. realize this energy, then breathe it in through the top of your head, down to the bottom of your spine,
or picture it filling different chakras
on each inhale. One thing to take note of is the fact that this powerful sphere is yellow, the colour
of the solar plexus
, the chakra of energy, confidence, male energy and the soul. A connection? Perhaps.
Confidence and energy
I wanted to touch on the solar plexus too.. When we open this chakra we feel more confident, but what does that mean to be confident? When we lack
confidence, we doubt our ability to do something. Is this like an internal mechanism that's telling us we lack the energy to accomplish a task?
Difficult things are more work for us, things we aren't used to. One who lacks confidence may still be able to do things they are familiar with. When
trying anything new, with continued efforts we learn to optimize the process, so is it that we are able to reduce required energy for a certain task,
that is to say, it doesn't weigh so heavy on self doubt?
Well confidence, courage, lets look at that. Courage is the WILL to stand strong and try things no matter the uncertainty or difficulty. It's like
having more energy then you assume you'd need, so we think there's nothing to worry about. Courage, the abundance of personal power.
So pulling energy into the solar plexus fills us with confidence, is this a sure sign that we are gathering power of an unseen sort? I believe so.
Energy networks and the human body
Another thing I wanted to bring up was the actual shape of your body, and I've been slacking on this one lately.
Think about this analogy:
Person A has really big muscles, he can lift much more then person B, but he can only lift for a short period of time before he has to rest.
Person B has really FIT muscles, he can lift a fair amount but he can do so for long periods of time before he needs any rest.
I don't see anything as muscle or matter, I see things as code or concepts. Your body, and particularly muscles, are a network.. Having larger
muscles gives you a larger network, more supports for oxygen / components of energy to reach, but it's a slow process unless the network is
organized. People who rip muscles to make them grow are damaging their network, essentially making it fail so the body will think to improve, repair
and expand the system.
If you work the network just right, (the muscles), they will optimize their performance, except in this case instead of expanding, they just organize.
Picture someone who is very physically fit, at the molecular level being this perfectly crystallized and arranged network for energy to flow. The
energy or oxygen passes freely with minimal resistance to supply adequate energy to keep the work going.
So what I'm saying, through this example you can see how energy flows. It's a simple matter of resistance. Expand vs Optimize.
I try to keep this in mind when dealing with energy. That is why I try and communicate with my cells and such, tell them to work together, harmonize
and crystallize like that image depicting the effect of positive intent on water.
If there's a cut in a wire, there's going to be a loss of power, the same with any other energy system I imagine.
Anyways I'd like to elaborate more but this house suddenly filled up with people and it's getting difficult to focus.
Have an efficient harmonious day.
I hope that edit job wasn't so bad, and that you understand what I'm getting at. If you've read my
Interested in spirituality and meditation
thread, you might have an idea what I'm
talking about. I recommend looking into Qi Gong
, it works wonders!
Anyways, good day!
EDIT: I'm done editing this post, please excuse my spelling and grammar, some obvious use of "u"s is because I'm Canadian. I get sloppy though, I
just keep typing trying to focus that communication energy, if I slow down I'll lose it.
