Anyone having hints to enhance or activate the fire channel better. If find within myself an unbalance with a lot of water energy (surprise) on the front channel/body and less fire. Feels like a giant balloon on the front and a more flat chi field at the back.
My fire has always been the weak element and I would like to strengthen that one.
I am aware and use different tao yin postures, spinal cord breathing, building the lower dantian and sexual energy, kidney breathing but still the fire is not in balance with the water…May 25, 2007 at 9:48 pm #22354
Sit outside with your back to the Sun (do you have sunny days in Belgium?), and feel the Sun fill the jade pillow with fire.
Sit inside, on the floor, with a candle behind your sacrum, and feel the fire energy rise up your back channel.
While exposing yourself to the fire, bend in and out of a bow to allow the fire to move and fill the back.May 25, 2007 at 10:00 pm #22356May 26, 2007 at 5:43 am #22358
Perhaps it is the place you also protect yourself the most? See if you can ingest the suffering coming to you into and through the spinal channel for release and opening. Take it to your weak most protected numb areas. ( It strikes me too now that you have asked energies through me are moving in your direction for you to use or not(; BarryMay 26, 2007 at 8:33 am #22360
In fact my question arose after I taught my female class last night. We did a very extended ‘stone age’ version of applying all the energies in the body and finally move them through the orbit. Stone age meaning, the way I was taught about 15 years ago by my very yang teachers. I always found that very difficult. Now after years of a more yin approach, following Michaels take, I went back to do this more yang approach. The energy was just really good, at least for me, the women were ‘complaining’ and asked if this type of practice always would be so ‘difficult’, even after years of practice.
Nope, but does take a long way to handle it.
Anyway it struck me even more that my back channel had less power compared with the front.
After posting the question I went to bed and figured if I can open my front so easily while lying on my back I turn myself, I put myself on my stomach and do my thing just the way I do on the front.
Seconds after this decision I was catapulted to my fathers life, I felt anger, and an emotion I don’t really recognize, not even now. My spine started to respond and my feet became restless, like ants. It was a very unpleasant sensation.
And even now during day it is a very annoying disturbing feeling, I don’t like it.
I suppose I’ve to go into that to release and open up my fire channel, it moves to different locations on the back effecting the organs inside and the points on the front, a pretty ’emotional’ situation although I try to guide it as smooth as possible. I don’t have the desire to throw this open because there are things in it that feel ‘weird’.
And Barry, I am not entirly clear what you posted, sometimes the use of your language puzzles me a bit, to figure what it is you exactly mean. Totally my language problem. But nevertheless yes, I feel the emotional load is the reason for the problems in the fire channel.
I think by having so much space without my partner it has a change to come into my
awareness better. Of course it has a connection with the male pole and without males in my life now I can enter MY male channel much better and work it through.
Any ideas welcomedMay 26, 2007 at 9:36 am #22362
Wendy, what you described is exactly what I was saying (believe it or not (:…and I appreciate where you take your practice..barMay 26, 2007 at 4:51 pm #22364
You may find that its a excess of fire that creates this watery ness. Just fire in another part of you(psychic fire). Try the healing sounds after that feels balanced, breath in the ha sound and breath out the ha sound down to the inner earth three times. Then deep earth pulsing. Encrease the size of the pearl so that it touches your peraneum front belly and back. Then start to rotate it. Do this for a while. Then condence this pearl down to a small dence pearl. You should have a good sence of the pearl at this piont. Take it down to the tip of the tale bone. Start to wrap the spine in golden thread or golden shilk(coming from the pearl). Go up an down the spine 1 to 3 times. Then take the pearl down to the saecrum and take it up one of the eight tiny holes down there up into the spine. At this piont increse the size of the pearl so that you are stretching out the spine. Then spin it up and down the spine like three times. After that do some micro cosmic orbit for a good while. I would do something like this untill you can just manage it with some orbit and some spinning of the pearl. You might want to wrap it all up with some belt channel work. Hope this helps.
Chi in I am out

There is something to it, I always thought I had too little fire but more recently I found out I might had too much fire, not balanced fire. So the fact I have so much water is to balance out unbalanced fire that is also trapped.
I am tired at this moment but I thank you for your comments…. tomorrow is another nice day to take this further.
