micahel, or whoever knows,
lately in doing my core practice i’ve witnessed an energy swap. as i dod the left and right core channel, in a manner similar to that of 8 extraordinary vessels, i notice the moon has moved to the right and the sun to the left. i did not inititate the change (consciously). is this yin within yang and yang within yin? or is something else going on?May 20, 2005 at 3:28 am #5807
Moon is on the right and sun on left (sun rises in east, heart is on left) basic practice.
The switch of yin-within-yang and v.v. comes from dragon/liver/father/yang rising within right lunar core channel, and tiger/lungs/mother/yin sinking within left core channel.
You’ve now switched tot he channel instead of the organ.

well i slept on this and i’m still not sure i get it. do you mean the loci of the shen has shifted? my physiology has changed? not sure i get it. i’ve also noticed that at about the same time, my appetite and dietary needs have changed as well. i eat less, don’t get hungry as often, and really can’t eat as much as i used to. down to two smaller meals a day comfortably and less meat.May 21, 2005 at 5:07 am #5811
There are a whole range of possibilities happening, don’t have enough info to give a solid reply.
But sounds like shift in your operating system is due to closer shen contact with pre-natal chi field. That is net effect of making contact with yin-within-yang and v.v. The lesser kan and li reversal is designed to stimulate this, known as counter-creation cycle (yang fire shen descend down yin right channel, yin water shen ascend up left yang channel.) Short story: shen are spiralling the chi inward rather than outward.
Once you shift to internal shen relationship you stop playing out issues in outer world and begin to resolve them internally. At core, many issues come down to feeling of lack of chi/nourishment from outer world, so we compensate by seeking it via emotion, sex, power, money, excess consulmption/food.
Once you tap into internal chi field, the extremes of this lack subside.
So it could be stimulated by your practice, in combo with feeling that your girlfrieind really loves you. That triggers feelng of self-worth and harmony amongst the shen as well.
The girlfriend could leave (or change her feelings). That’s why people practice, to lessen dependence on external source. Extremists (including Taoists sealing the senses prematurely) try to eliminate the external influence entirely, but this can lead to other imbalances and inability to complete one’s destiny in the world. And so the wheel turns…..or should we say, our inner soul team slowly learns to turn the wheel.

thanks, that explains a lot more. something to work with. i think the girlfriend thing is less significant than the inner shift that facilitates it, to wit: i now am able to feel that people really love me. thus with or without my gf, i still have the power to be loved by whoever. very different from the egocentric attachments of earlier relationships.
the one drawback is that being a player was so much fun……
