Well its been around 100 days of practice of the five animals. I am having wonderful results which I couldn’t get to with other systems. It really feels like this practice is like psychotherapy. My latest healing was activating my spleen, which used to be somehow suppressed, and it feels like part of my soul is back. I understood and felt the five elements and their relation to the organs and emotions. I am more emotionally balanced and aware.
Here are some of my journal entries:
28.07.2015 I was doing 5 animals do the healing sounds in the afternoon and shortly after I want to take a nap. I had a wonderful dream which was like continuation of the practice. First I had visions of mountains with snow that is melted at patches, so vivid and realistic yet magical like the photographs of Iceland. I became aware that as the snow is melting relief is coming. Then I was walking by the river, knowing that the people of that lived around were saying that the shaman did a good job because the river is getting to flow more and more. Than I was skipping in and out of the river as more water was starting to come
08.08.2015 My journal entry is about how I became aware of my anger and negativity. It happened that I got angry as usual at my father but instead of being engulfed by it I became aware which energy channel was affected. Since it was on my left side I started to do the earth sound and I got some control over myself. I can guess what you might think, why anger on the left side since it is connected to the liver. Well I think its because my earth element is surpressed, that is where I get angry probably or maybe this negativity that I felt was not really anger, but it doesn’t matter. Anyway this awareness has became possible only through this practice. It may be that it is the same source for this strong headaches that I get ocasionally. However it seems that I am becoming aware of something compulsive that has been there for years, and other spiritual systems didn’t help me before.
24.08.2015 Today I had a strong relase in the liver. Energy of freshness is moving from the liver to the heart. It feeds the heart. I understood how my initiative was surpressed. And the heart cannot love if it is not free.
27.08.2015 We were in a house in the mountain and it was a cold night. I woke up in the middle of the night being cold. I got up I read a little bit the ebook of the five animals. So I just took a bit of the practice where I just breathed connecting the dan tien and the kidneys. Then I got to bed and had a dream that I was in the middle of the street in some warm place somewhere, and it was flooded a little bit and more water was coming, somewhere to the height of my knees. As it came it splashed in my legs, but I stood firm not loosing balance. I woke with a really good feeling.
05.10.2015 Today I had a really nice recovery with the five animals. I barely got myself to start because I was kind of depressed for two day. I was waking up with a low energy. I immediately got motivated as I started the lung sound. And when I came to the bear and the kidney I really felt cold water energy throughout my body. I guess it was too strong. So I continued the bear until it got more balanced. As I continued I could understand how one element out of balance is affecting the rest. It turns out that this technique is really good to save yourself from tough emotional states.
07.10.2015 I finally found time to really get into it and dedicate more time to train. This time with a determination to activate the spleen which somehow never got it before. And I did it. Finally I could feel my breath in my left side of the body. I just couldn’t breathing deeply being content that these channels got open again. At the same time it was a bit of a heavy feeling as the this negativity block was coming out. During the day I felt heavy and I was even sleeping during the day. But it was only because a cleaning process was started.
08.10.2015 Succesfull practice following the yesterday awakening of the spleen. This time energy was much more flowing, and little difficulties in cleaning the leftovers. Now I feel the left side of my body more open, and just feeling it is a new thing anyway.
09.10.2015 Today I feel really good, but I couldn’t do the five animals, and then tried the microcosmic orbit, which I also couldn’t do. I recognised that I needed some physical excercise to move the stagnant energy, and I did some cardio excercize. It really felt like I’m breathing with my whole body.October 13, 2015 at 4:15 am #44965
Wonderful, wonderful. Thank you for sharing.
As a quick fyi: left side of the body is connected to father, so I suspect this was also a contributing factor as to why you had that negativity awareness on your left side. In any case, glad to see that you seemed to be getting some healing there.
In total, it sounds like you are getting some really positive results; keep it up.

How much do you do every day ? What is your programme ?October 13, 2015 at 2:03 pm #44969
Well I am not too disciplined. Its around 3 times a week of Five animals do the healing sounds and another 3 for the healing sounds alone. But when I do the animals it takes me hour or hour and a half (it comes naturally to them this long, not like I’m forcing it). I learned from the home study course.October 13, 2015 at 8:31 pm #44971
Do you feel that get a different effect doing the animal frolics vs healing sounds alone (which I interpret to mean seated practice) ?October 14, 2015 at 8:15 am #44973
You mean it takes 1hr or 1Hr30 to do the 5 animals ? Wow that’s a lot. Normally I them in 10 minutes.
How do you time it ? Do you stop when you feel something happen ?October 14, 2015 at 3:58 pm #44975
For me the animal frolics is the going deep practice. But I believe its about what you have more affinity for makes it deeper. Also I found that doing frolics one day and sounds the next makes it easier to push through and get deeper.
Why it happens to me to do it that long I don’t know. Its about being aware of what is happening inside while following the instructions. I believe that in the end its about having the change inside vs. making it look good. I also make space and time to say a prayer and thanks in between sounds or an animal. Also I allow more time for the breathing parts.
What I really found to be helpful is adding those fine details to the practice, like eyes looking in the distance, and at the end every element to breathe from the dan tien to the organ and then the whole body. I found these details in the e-book and maybe they are also on the audio course which I never got to listen to yet.October 17, 2015 at 4:08 am #44977
