So I have been doing QE 1,2,3,4 plus some extensions like thrusting channels/ bridge/regs for maybe 1.5 years now almost every day, good deep sessions these days. And it’s all good.
But I have some deeply crystalized blockages on the right side, perhaps from trauma, that are not shifting at all. The only way I have found to work on them is through Outer Dissolving from BKF. Which is extremely arduous and time consuming.
Recently I did try to prepare myself for my qigong session by letting go dissolving releasing and then doing it, but although a little better I feel almost zero improvement on those crystalized areas. The rest of me seems bright and vital, but ….
Not sure what I can do.
It doesn’t seem like there is anything in Healing Tao that deals like surgery with these things ? Or is there.
What else could I try ?
The only thing I can think of is to do an even longer mega 5 animals / 6 sounds session to just see if it is possible for those blockages to shift. Or possibly to do sexual energy kan/li mega session. Just to see if there is any trajectory of improvement there.
After that I suppose I might try accupuncture.
I found DHQ / Primordial to have no effect, many tools are too general, they don’t target particular areas.
They feel like coal seems of hardened material in up down channels from the right hemisphere all the way down to the feet.
I have dissolved some small areas, but it was tough and took a long time.
Surely there is another way ?April 29, 2017 at 9:28 am #1468
The times when i’ve managed to unravel the problem areas in my body has been through continued healing sounds practice. Like i mean practicing the healing sounds effecting the troubled organs for hours a day under my breath while doing all sorts of activities, not in a seated meditation session.
Also, probably a more important part is to watch the problem area and learn to realise which activities, foods you eat, thoughts you think, or things you do in your daily life that cause this area to get better or get worse.
The problem is that the things that make me worse are the things I love, and they make me me. In reality 100 years of meditation couldn’t unblock what 6 months of walking the walk could do… and meditation becomes a waste of time if i’m always fighting against myself by doing the things i do. I guess realising it is the start but going on to change it on the long term, well thats something else….
So yeah, this is ‘another way’ and the best way i believe. It’s very fast and effective, but it’s not easy. It is breaking habits and not having habits. Good habits, bad habits, they’re all habits and all bad if we repeat them over and over. We need to continuously change our habits so there are no habits, even if the changes are slight different angle, that can help.
How can this help? because we need to be in the moment. Also changing these things slightly is different from brute forcing it, or even dissolving because these are like opposing the the problem however slight changes can be like stepping around the problem. I find this stepping around works best if i work at it continuously. Just simple things like opening doors with your other hand, washing your legs before your face while in the shower, or arms before back (just keep changing it up), calling somebody by a nickname instead of their real name. Everything just keep changing. Thats what i’m working on at the moment any how.April 29, 2017 at 4:07 pm #1469
Yeah I agree.
I am there already, I call it sincerity practice, it’s quite a big thing, part of it is similar to repentence, recapitulating the day. Another is like when you do Cloud Hands or Tai Chi – what is it really about ? It is about sincerity of the body.
Likewise there is sincerity of the emotions and thoughts. To be what you are and see being what you are as the solution.
At any point you can observe yourself and see how you move away from the sincerity of your centre. It is a big practice and perhaps a final practice. Everthing is inside. We are basically living fake lives.
I have found that I can stop the fakeness. And deeper I found that I want to do other things, so eventually it leads to a non-separation with existence that is active..
So yeah there is a sort of emotional churning that is part of this seam of coal and I am getting there, I am ready for it but it is basically awakening as a solution. Luckily I started that journey long ago.
At the moment I am using all methods relative and absolute, focussed and systemic.
Healing sounds are good, I do a good energetic puking session with them. There is a certain art in puking effectively.May 2, 2017 at 5:35 pm #1474
Great to hear from you and your report on your progress. I will be short because I am traveling and have little time. I have some liver issues also, they are actually liver/spleen issues and physically maybe pancreas. Anyway, what really helped me with my liver energy is embracing the tree standing meditation. I learned it from Mantak Chia’s book Iron Shirt (is this one of Michaels books also?). If you learn it by yourself it will definitely be incomplete, and we could guess the consequences of long term doing something improperly, BUT you can get effects, and you can get wonderful effects. I was doing it for two months regularly and then less and less. I start getting really uncomfortable doing it and so I stopped. BUT many effects stuck with me, and I am much more grounded than before. So I believe this one has a profound effect on the liver, and many other nice effects.
The other advice that I can give (for the more general issue of entrenched blockages), based on my experience is changing the diet and learning more about your health. I can guess that you might have fatty liver. One way to kick start fat burning is ketogenic diet. A quick preview of what ketogenic diet may bring you would be to skip dinner, and next morning to drink and MCT drink (recipes online, search MCT coffee, or MCT tea, or MCT drink etc…). Keywords you might want to explore: ketogenic diet, fatty liver, MCT drink.
Yet another way to go to have more insight in the issue is try juice fasting. Few days of fruit juice. They say grape juice is the best. Other options are watermelon or any other acid or subacid fruit. Dark red they recommend. This is inspired by dr. Morse, but not really his protocol. So you drink 1-3 liter of juice mixed with 1-3 lemons, slowly throughout the day. In the morning you can make psyllium husk pudding, by adding 1-2 tablespoons of psyllium husk in a cup or two of juice. You might need to do enemas. Keywords you might want to explore: dr. Robert Morse (best), master fast protocol (careful with this one), plasma pudding, GI broom, grape juice fast.
If you try these things you will learn a lot about entrenched blockages and your right side issues. None of this is quick fix. You must explore thoroughly theoretically first, use common sense, and be very careful with any of these suggestions. These are all part of my path and don’t have to be or need to be part of yours. I wish I had more time, but believe to write this I am going out of my way already. In few weeks maybe I can share more.May 5, 2017 at 2:44 pm #1483
Hey Viktor, it’s interesting to hear what you are doing, although in this case it seems we have different affinities.
I have tried many detox fruit juice diets, but I don’t think they are good. They are Western show-off ego diets if you ask me, like they turn yoga into elastic sexy body stretching exercise.
When yoga really means union with God or communion.
Nothing stretchy in it !
Anyway I am half Asian, and stewed congees work for me. The fruit juice stuff makes me sort of ego-high wanting to rush around and do stupid things like all Westerners.
Milk thistle and Dandelion are good for the liver, but the liver is only part of the cycle, all my elements need help especially the heart. I am still learning about these.
It’s interesting the Mantak Chia approach to Iron Shirt, but although I have tried it, it’s not really my nature. I am not trying to be big and tough anymore, that’s not the way of water if you ask me.
I have a nice book by Michael Cohen regarding ZZ which is simply pure standing, similar to Lam Kan Chuen’s books. It’s basically stand and let the standing teach you. Normally you stand in Wuji basic stance for months look to dissolve, soften, and soften some more.
Emptying rather than filling.
Dissolving rather than strengthening.
For me this is what I am looking for, dissolution and merging with the source.
The days of being a tough guy are over for me.
Who can you overcome when you are so small?
Overcoming arrives from dissolution and surrender, which is the meaning Taoism, Laozi sits like a log on the Earth.
I have an energetic infectation so it’s only going to work through the removal dissolution business, no point building anything up with so much garbage inside.
That’s where I am at, I am making progress, bit better than I expected.
Monday I am seeing a Shaman to see what he can do.
I just started drinking a teaspoon of lemon in the morning, seems good – but you know a lot of people drinking lots of lemons get cavities – it’s not in balance to do too much like that, too extreme – like those who want to kill everything in their body.
Anyway, I tried all the extreme stuff already, I live in the west after all !!!!
Just didn’t work !!!
Look what I just noticed :
Liver : LiveMay 10, 2017 at 10:37 pm #1495
I think food helps lots too. I find aitkins diets pretty hard on my liver and heat my liver up more and make things worse. Lemon juice definitely helps. Milk thistle and dandylion i think are great too. I got some livatone plus herbal supplement that has helped lots, it’s just a handy little pill that works well.I know it works well because i can take a pill and 20 mins later i feel very similar to the balancing i’ve done after qigong 🙂 I like my beer though so it helps to bring some balance.
Rideforever: I think Mantak Chia’s standing only part of embracing the tree, not the packing part, is supposed to be done like you say ‘Let the standing teach you’ is told by the other bloke you mentioned. When you get tired of holding yourself the way you think you should be, you let go and stand the way you really should. The great thing about embracing the tree stance is it strengthens the muscles that makes holding good posture in daily life a breeze. The stretching of the throatic spine region shown at the end of the book is very good for this also.May 24, 2017 at 11:41 am #1527
I am not sure if it is the Liver or if I have some weird energy damage to the right foot on the line of the Liver Meridien. I have been laboriously working through it using dissolving, one bone at a time on the right foot. It is blocked everywhere like my foot is being eaten by a shark or something.
Tried packing yesterday although it is nice feeling it feels like it adds something, whereas I am mostly concerned with removing blockages right now.
It was quite painful and unproductive getting any chi into the right foot toes.
