Well, I’ve been avoiding it, and sure had enough to distract me, DHQ and primordial, but eventually I need to progress towards it. I only have the homestudy course (which maybe is an old version, no dragons involved). Maybe you can tell me what to expect as benefits, how do I know is open etc…
Should I do the form before the meditation?

If I may share a few thoughts based on my own limited experience: I got into HT primarily with a view to resolving emotional issues. In somatic terms, these issues would manifest as a feeling of congestion in the chest or sometimes reaching down the front of the body into the solar plexus. I found the orbit practice very useful in relieving this kind of tension. Following Michael’s advice, I initially worked primarily with the movement forms. He says that the movement forms give a deeper effect, at least for beginners, and I found this to be true in my own experience. In the beginning months, I found that if I didn’t do the orbit every 2-3 days then I would begin to experience congestion in the chest/ front of the body. Over time I find I don’t need to do it so often. For me, the most general characterization of the effect of the orbit is one of balancing/grounding/stabilizing. While it is sometimes hard to tell which practice is having which effect, my sense is that the orbit is a very benign practice, and I don’t believe I’ve experienced major detox reactions from doing it – which I can’t say about some of the other practices. Also, having practiced it for a while it becomes noticeable when doing other practices which involve moving energy through the orbit. There is a sense that the energy flows more freely.May 28, 2016 at 3:10 pm #46609May 29, 2016 at 5:06 am #46611
Yes the orbit is a beginner’s practice and is safe to do without getting much in the way of detox. The only things that technically precede it are the Six Healing Sounds, so that by detoxing the toxic qi, you don’t circulate this toxic stuff in the orbit; and the Inner Smile–which precedes the Six Healing Sounds–because by cultivating self-acceptance, the dissolution of tension allows trapped toxic stuff to freely move for later Six Healing Sound ejection.
But these two prerequisites are not severe enough to create discomfort from beginning with the orbit straight away. Even circulating toxic qi is better than stuck toxic qi. As long as it is not forced into a deep area where it would get trapped, there is no problem, which by the circular connected nature of the orbit is unlikely.

I would say the orbit is the quickest way to balance and clean your qi and clear the energetic pathway between heaven and earth. The wun dang method Michael teach is quite bit different then the method that Matak uses. In my humble and limited experience I would say is good to learn both. Matak’s is to me a great way to circulate earth qi. But Michael’s way is safer and better to balance.
If you are doing DHQ you already half way through it since the first two parts you are creating a vessel/pearl with the sounds and then circulating it trough the orbit. The only difference is that is a macro cosmic one. To turn micro you just have to complete the channel at top and and.
You could do the first part of DHQ since you are used to it and start a walking orbit from it. Then you can sit and let it flow. Or continue the DHQ. Do what feels natural to you.
I would not approach these practices with a what to expect mentality. Everyone comes from a different start point so everyone will have different experiences. Some already had perception of the q field, some none.
The point is where to you plan to go with this? Cure some chronic condition? Better health? Go all the way the alchemical path? If yours is the last one you should have no questions about learning the orbit or any other fundamental practice. Michael’s course is structured that what you learn now is the basis for the advanced practice.
