Spinning Dragon Orbit: Effortless Alchemy. My new, powerful Tao meditation, from 39 years research….

Chinese dragons, unlike Western
dragons, are a sign of Imperial power, and are often depicted either
chasing or guarding a Pearl. Why?
My theory: Chinese dragon spirits over the ages have learned to
interact with Taoist internal alchemists, who transform their personal
essence into a pearl -like elixir to achieve immortality.
Dear Lovers of Effortless Chi Flow,
The first and most famous Taoist method of Inner Alchemy meditation is
known in the West as the Microcosmic Orbit. The Chinese call it ?the
Small Heavenly Round? (xiao hou tian). It has other names, like
Embryonic Breathing, Warm Current, etc. It was first written about over
2000 years ago. It was originally described as a method of bringing
sexual essence up the spine to recharge the brain.
After studying dozens of Orbit variations taught in China over the last
30 years, and testing them on myself, I have recently developed what I
am confident is the most powerful form of the Orbit. One reason I am so
confident of this is because I?ve also tested dozens of different orbit
methods on my Western students, and observed their response. I?m a
spiritual scientist, and favor ?what works now? over ?what worked for
the Chinese in the past?. This doesn?t lessen my deep gratitude to the
Taoist tradition, the root of my inspiration.
But when you do a practice long enough, it reveals deeper secrets to
you. Experimentation is at the very heart of the alchemical process.
Inner Alchemy is just simple way of describing evolution. Alchemy keep
things simple by working directly with the 3 streams of the Life Force.
Negative, positive, and neutral; or yin, yang, and yuan in Taoist
I call my new method the Spinning Dragon Orbit. It?s my evolution of
the highly secret oral-only Wudang Mountain spinning pearl orbit method
that I used to teach. Two things are required to master this new orbit
method: the mechanics of the method itself, and a transmission, which is
essentially how it feels.
The transmission, which I give on the second day of my workshop on
Medical and Spiritual Qigong Fundamentals 1 & 2, involves inviting
in a dragon spirit to inhabit and spin inside one?s personal elixir, or
Inner Pearl. So you first need to know how to form that Pearl, and make
Gold dragon, from my private collection of Chinese silk scroll paintings.
But inviting in dragon spirits? Dragons
in Western mythology are generally regarded as extremely dangerous
creatures. Most Western adults make them “safe” by not believing dragons
are real. That is partly because their childhood power of imagination
was beaten out of them by adults. The culture does that in order to make
kids grows up into well-behaved social and economic robots.
Perversely, Western culture DOES believe in the Devil, as it wants you
to sell your soul in exchange for a few creature comforts.
I know for myself that dragons are real;
they just aren’t “physical”. Like most spiritual beings, they live in
the astral or etheric planes, invisible to ordinary sight. But pretend
for the moment that ?dragon? is a metaphor for a ?natural spinning
force?. Even the most nerdy scientist can observe that the spinning
force is the dominant power in this Cosmos.
Electrons and protons spin around
neutrons. The earth spins on its axis. The planets spin around the sun,
the sun spins around the zodiac, and the zodiac spins around some hidden
super-galactic center, whose mega blackhole spin is so powerful it
swallows all gravity and light as it burps out 100 trillion stars.
Electron microscope still photo of
egg & sperm hot to unite. Photo fails to show the spin of the egg
from the collective soul force of the sperm readying the egg for
Men and women spin around each other, in endless sexual play. When
human sperm fertilize an egg, they must first gang up and get the giant
(to them) egg spinning rapidly, so the incoming soul can “spin into
matter”. So spin is the key to fertility (hint, hint, if you’re having
trouble with that). Spinning is THE process necessary at the moment of
conception, beyond all the egg-sperm chemistry. The vibratory spin of
your soul is your signature, so Source can track you. All the world?s a
spinning theatre?, to paraphrase a famous bard.
But how many of us ever figure out where that spinning force comes
from? Or why there has to be a still space of ?no spin? in the center of
it? If you did, you?d get the Nobel Prize for figuring out perpetual
motion. Nature is not stupid; it spins for a good reason. Some
meditators foolishly dream they can stop the spin, but Creation seems to
keep on spinning despite their ambitions to achieve an Absolute. If you
could capture the spinning force, you would have the greatest power in
all Creation at your ?psychic fingertips?. Hopefully you would put this
spiral power to spreading love, balance, and harmony.
For a lover of Tao, learning my new Spinning Dragon Orbit simply means
you are empowered to EFFORTLESSLY create deeper harmony and balance in
your life. That?s my experience. You don’t need to effort with your
everyday mind to cause the spin. The spinning Dragon force, once you get
it going, is effortless, alive and intelligent. The Taoists call this
spin the True or Original Yin-Yang force. Its balanced spinning Chi
silently overflows into your health, your relationships, your career. It
deepens your spiritual path by internally grounding you. It guides your
destiny like an internal spinning gyroscope. The orbit supports your
unique virtues and your soul’s natural loving presence to flow in
graceful spirals out into your everyday life.
If you are into the yogic model, you know that “chakra” means “spinning
wheel”. The Spinning Dragon Orbit method creates a super-chakra whose
spin embraces and balances all the other chakras simultaneously. I
taught kundalini yoga for many years, and loved it. But I find that
opening a single whole-body orbit is far more efficient than trying to
“open” each individual chakra.
Or consider the metaphor of a car. Once you get it started, it drives
wherever you steer it, at whatever speed you choose. The difference
between a car and the Orbit is that now you are driving the ?car of your
body-mind?, and the fuel source, the Life Force, is free and infinite.
Your rate of internal spin determines how much Chi you will draw in from
the greater field. You don?t need to pay for gas or new tires.
What could be more valuable than this? Do you treasure your body-mind?s
car as much as you love your metal & plastic-molded automobile?
Unfortunately, a lot of people treat their car better than they do their
body. But it’s never too late to wake up and enjoy a life of increased
spiritual power. Are you open to receiving assistance from powerful,
harmonious dragon spirits, and to effortlessly spin your Way to health
