    Few words from the Mantak Chia book – Tan Tien Chi Kung ( qi gong )

    “The Lower Tan Tien ( navel area, your bodys center ) is the main energy reservoir in the body. It is

    the place where we store the energy we generate, gather and ab-

    sorb in Chi Kung and meditation. If the energy is stored in the Tan

    Tien it can be accessed later, if not the Chi dissipates and cannot be

    used. The Tan Tien is therefore also called the Ocean of Chi. Ac-

    cording to the Chinese medical theory,once the ocean is full it over-

    flows into the eight extraordinary meridians.Once these are full the

    Chi flows into the twelve ordinary meridians, each of which is asso-

    ciated with a particular organ. The Tan Tien is there for the founda-

    tion of the entire energetic system of the body.”

    This all begins to explain my senses that the energy is stored in the navel area. When it is full, there is constant electricity and good pressure in the navel area and stomach. Without this feeling there is no much drive inside the body.

    Begin by sitting in cross legged position and keep your back straight. Try to make yourself feel very comfortable and put more weight on your hips than your legs.

    The goal in taoist practices is to reach the most natural state of body, mind and soul. In that natural state, chi flows smoothly and energy reserves can be recharged. Unfortunately, in todays stressful world we have often no idea what that natural state even means. You may know, that using too much of your upper brain to thinking or worrying isn’t the best thing to do for your well-being. Excessive thinking creates easily heat to the head and dries up our life-force, and cause easily anger and frustration. So we need to at least learn to empty the upper mind.

    Another important thing is to learn to grow our awareness outside. This does not mean that we should turn our senses out ( like vision, hearing, touch ). Turning your senses out constantly will actually deplete your life-force to tv-programs, music, pornographic material or even to other people. Simply step out from your own mind, and become aware what exists on the outside. By emptying your upper mind, turning your consciousness inside to your navel area ( tan tien ) and growing your awareness out, you will attain the most natural state of body, mind and soul. At the same time, relax all your muscles, let them become completely loose ( this is very important ). Feel the energy condensing on the navel area when your are exhaling slowly ( this recharges your energy ). It will also help your stomach when you move your consciousness into it, instead of overly worrying or thinking. When you move your consciousness to your lower abdomen, do not block your throat area but simply drop the consciousness there easily.

    Learn not only to empty the upper mind, but learn also to sink the consciousness to your lower tan tien and increase your awareness outside, and you will connect your body to the external indefinite universe which recharges your body through deep breathing and relaxing. No scientists of today can understand the connection between our bodies and the universe, they are of no help when studying these natural practices. Mantak Chia has a nice page where he discusses these methods.

    Chapter from Tao Te Ching ( at least 2500 years old ):

    “…

    So, in governing, the wise

    Empty the mind

    But fill the stomach,

    Weaken ambition

    But strengthen the bones,

    Keep things free of

    Desire and learning,

    So the clever take no action.

    Act without taking action

    And things will be in order.”

    That seems like reference to tan tien breathing meditation. Empty upper mind, drop awareness to navel area, fill it.

    Sir,

    Have you heard of the book by Master Lam Kam Chuen “The Way of Energy”? A friend gave me a tip on this guy. I believe its supposed to be the Zhan Zhuang system of Chi Kung.

    I´m looking forward this book, I´ve read all the Mantak Chia and other qigong / health books I have, but I´m still looking for simple qigong exercises, many of them are too complicated and I want to keep things simple. Thanks for the hint.

    Check out the reviews on Amazon. A lot of people liked it.

    You know…the instructions you gave at the beginning of this thread I think EVERYONE on this forum should practice gradually each day. I have just begun and I know some people who report feelings of mental clarity, control over libido, being more centered as well as a growing awareness of oneself and others energy. I believe this falls in line with the famous quote in the classic book the Tao Te Ching…” To know others is to know yourself”

    i too hope the exercise won’t be very complicated. I think you do have to take in mind your genotype though.

    I fixed the topic here. The point of this meditation and exercise is to drop the mind and conscioussness to the navel area, let the awareness grow outside of your body and breathe deeply ( using the lowest parts of your lungs ) and calmly.

    It is fun since I´ve been reading from the Mantak Chia books about the earth force ( yin ), universal force ( yang ) and the cosmic qi ( chi life force ) which are the three pure ones and composes everything that exists. By practicing the awareness out meditation I´ve been able to feel the cool flow of energy through my perineum and the warm energy through the top of my head and also my whole body feels warm as the energy and blood is circulated. There is no doubt that correct breathing and state of mind does recharge the body and put everything back to balance.

    “In the practice of Tai Chi Chuan you have to connect the three Tantiens together with the mind. To do this you must use Yi or Mind Power. Yi will never happen unless you learn to rest your mind with the conscious mind and heart, and the conscious mind of awareness. When you connect the three Tantiens with your Yi you can then develop Chi. When your turn your awareness inwardly you, in turn, connect your awareness outwardly with the Cosmos. You can then feel your energy moving through your body. When your cerebral mind becomes over-activated we call this the Monkey Mind. When this is allowed to happen, then your awareness stops, and the flow of the chi energy will no longer be promoted through the pathways.”

    “You turn your consciousness in and your awareness turns out and you connect with the consciousness of the universe, you move and the chi moves. When you move up to the mind again it stops. When your consciousness stops your chi stops. You cease to connect with the force.”

    Thats why stress and using too much the upper mind is harmful, it un-connects the person from the universe and natural flow of chi in the organ energy network stops flowing smoothly.

    I consider this meditation practice the most beneficial and best of the practices I´ve ever tried.

    For those interested in general taoist philosophy, healing the heart, uniting the body, mind and soul, connect with universe, speed up personal evolution, learn about birth and death, looking for the truth of Universe I recommend Lao Tzu’s second book Hua Hu Ching, which can be considered Tao Te Chings little brother. Personally I think it is more insightful and detailed than Tao Te Ching. Together such knowledge with Mantak Chias and buddhist meditation practices, chinese sexual practices, correct eating patterns ( derived from ayurvedic healing system ), whole body deep breathing exercises and awareness-increasing practices will be the ultimate self-healing system.

    I do not believe such text is fully written by Lao Tzu which was famous for his simplicity and avoiding complexity approach. However the text contains lots of good wisdom.

    “Those who wish to embody the Tao should embrace all things. To embrace all things means first that one holds no anger or resistance toward any idea or thing, living or dead, formed or formless. Acceptance is the very essence of the Tao. To embrace all things means also that one rids oneself of any concept of separation; male and female, self and other, life and death. Division is contrary to the nature of the Tao. Foregoing antagonism and separation, one enters in the harmonious oneness of all things. “

    I want to point out that the purpose of all meditation practice, is not to turn yourself an isolated being ( selfish ) being, instead when you grow your awareness out you should have the feeling of oneness with everything. It is only then when the energy flows smoothly. Again, I can not fully explain what is meant with growing awareness out, connect with the universe and feel the oneness of everything since it has to be experienced oneself.

    There are lots of people whose worrying and stress has unconnected and isolated them from the universe so they no longer can go back to the feeling which we had when we were child. Thus, there will never be end for their worrying.

    Feeling the flow and oneness = no worrying, sense of stability and security

    un-connected and isolated = all the time worrying, instability and insecurity

    With each breath, you are able to feel the vibration with everything that exists. It will come naturally when you practice.

    I found tan tien a couple of weeks ago and been addicted to it ever since. Felt like a major breakthrough in my healing process. It really changed me. It was the missing link I’ve been searching for years. There cannot be health without natural breathing.

    I sincerely recommend breathing to tan tien.
