Inner Smile

The Inner Smile is a powerful internal healing and relaxation meditation. Deep relaxation dissolves physical and mental tensions that can cause energy blockages and unhealthy Chi. The Inner Smile enhances the energy of the organs and glands, our life force in general, and stills and focuses the mind-eye-heart. It makes us more aware of our body and inner being, because we learn to communicate with our organs, glands, spine and other specific parts of
our body, as well as our soul. Taoists discovered that consciousness is rooted not only in the brain alone, but also in the vital organs and in the more subtle sense in each of the cells.
By smiling to the organs and thanking them for the work they do, eventually we will reawaken the intelligence of the body. We are often so out of touch with our bodies and emotions that we do not notice inner disharmony developing until it finally manifests itself as a serious illness. Practicing the Inner Smile daily provides a regular scheduled time to look inside, to keep in touch with the state of our inner organs, our Chi, our breath and emotions. We can then spot problems at their inception, making it easier to ‘nip them in the bud’. Low self-esteem is becoming endemic. With the Inner Smile, we start to develop a healthy, loving relationship with ourselves and with others. We start to recognize our own positive qualities. With regular practice, we get to know ourselves as we really are; we will discover our virtues. This will help us form a more authentic and
healthier self-image, one that can stay in close contact with reality. The Inner Smile trains our ability to love and relax our own body and soul. If we learn to love and accept ourselves the way we are, it becomes easier and more natural for us to extend this love outward and to love and accept other people as well.
Always start the Inner Smile with the rocking exercise. Rock your spine from your sitting bones and sacrum to the sides and than back an forth.

When the spine is tense and stiff, there is no way to calm down.
     The well-known “Three Lines Inner Smile”, which you will find in the books Taoist Way to Transform Stress into Vitality and in Awaken Universal Light.
     The “Energizing Inner Smile”.
     The Inner Smile that emphasizes relaxation, balancing the emotions and transform them into compassion energy.

The Microcosmic Orbit Meditation awakens, circulates and directs Chi through the Governing Channel (Du Mai), which ascends from the base of the spine up to the crown (Bai Hui) and the Functional or Conception Channel (Ren Mai), which runs from the tip of the tongue down the middle of the torso to the perineum (Hui Yin). Dedicated practice of this ancient esoteric method eliminates stress and nervous tension, energizes the internal organs, restores health to damaged tissue, and builds a strong sense of personal well‑being.

The Microcosmic Orbit is the foundation of any taoist practice. Each new practice is dependent upon the quality of your meditations and your ability to perfect the Microcosmic Orbit. The meditations in the Microcosmic Orbit ‘system’ also strengthen the Original Chi and teach you the basics of circulating energy. This enables the palms, the soles of the feet, the mideyebrow point and the crown to open. These specific locations are the major points where energy can be absorbed, condensed and transformed into fresh new life force.

Focus on the Lower Tan Tien (the area where the Original Chi is stored, between the navel, kidneys and sexual organs). Feel the pulsing in this area, observe whether this area feels tense or relaxed, cool or warm, expansive or contracting. Notice any sensations of Chi: tingling, heat, expansiveness, pulsing, electricity or magnetism. Allow these to grow and expand. Then let this energy flow out to the Navel Center.
Use your intention (mind/eye/heart power) to spiral in the point and guide and move the Chi. Let the energy flow down to the Sexual Center (the Ovarian or Sperm Palace).
     Move the energy from the Sexual Center to the perineum and down to the soles of the feet.
     Draw the energy up from the soles to the perineum and to the sacrum.
     Draw the energy up from the sacrum to the Door of Life (the point in the spine opposite the navel).
     Draw the energy up to the mid‑spine point (T11 vertebra).
     Draw the energy up to the base of the skull (Jade Pillow).
     Draw the energy up to the crown.
     Move the energy down from the crown to the mideyebrow point.
     Touch the tip of your tongue to your upper palate; press and release a few times.
     Then rest and lightly touch the tongue to the palate, sensing the electricity or tingling feeling of the energy flowing into the tongue.
     Move the energy down from the mideyebrow to where the tip of your tongue and palate meet.
     Move the energy down from the palate through your tongue to the Throat Center. 
     Move the energy down from the throat to the Heart Center.
     Bring the energy down from the heart to the solar plexus. Feel a small sun shining out. 
     Bring the energy back down to the navel.
     Continue to circulate your energy through this entire sequence of points at least nine times.
     Once the pathways are open, you can let your energy flow continuously like a stream or river, without stopping at each point.
     Conclude when you wish, by collecting energy at the navel:

Men: Cover your navel with both palms, left hand over right. Collect and mentally spiral the energy outward from the navel 36 times clockwise and then inward 24 times counterclockwise.
Women: Cover your navel with both palms, right hand over left. Collect and mentally spiral the energy outward from the navel 36 times counterclockwise and then inward 24 times clockwise.

 

Inner Sexual Alchemy - Healing Love

The Healing Love is the cultivation of sexual energy (Ching Chi), generated in our "love organs". Closely connected with the glandular system, our genital organs can produce large amounts of sexual energy, a very fiery energy, powerful, alive, but not permanent. To save them, they must be directed to the other organs and can not be left solely in the sexual organs, or "wasted", ie without discharging them to circulate. The exercises and meditations of love from the Universal Healing Tao show us how we circulate the fiery energy of the Ching Chi, transform, can connect with the energy of the heart and preserve.

Since the sexual energy of men and women is very different and a common practice that counts " pair cultivation " , to the more advanced techniques , the exercises are first practiced individually.
The woman learned the " breast massage ", the " Ovaratmung " and the exercise with the Jade Egg . In addition to the Strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles can be influenced during menstruation , organ cuts, hormone fluctuations and to increase sexual sensitivity before and also to complaints .
The man learned to massage the sexual organs , the " testicle breathing," as well as the technique of the "Great Empor drawing " , with the ejaculation can be controlled while having an orgasm is experienced. Also, it can positve effect on problems such as impotence , prostate problems , his health and sexual pleasure .
The goal is to cultivate the energy of the Ching Chi to use the refined energy of love for the self-healing , rejuvenation, creative expansion and spiritual growth. This makes it possible to experience vibrant zest for life. Is also promoted a deeper understanding of our sexuality as well as our ability to love, respect , intimacy and independence to experience in our love relationship.

Organ Detoxification, the "Chi Nei Tsang" Massage

(Second brain: Abdominal massage)

People often develop energy blockages of their internal organs, which have their roots in the knots and tangles of the intestinal tract.
Emotions such as fear, anger, excessive anxiety, depression and rumination can cause great damage in our bodies.

Energy losses can occur as by overwork, stress, accidents, surgery, drugs and toxins, poor and contaminated food and especially through vocational uncertainty.
 

 

These negative emotions and toxic energies seek discharge and deposit as from on and around the organs in our body that can process parts of this emotional garbage. But usually there remain enough blockades to impede the energy flow in the body, which eventually leads usually to disease. Negative emotions can create such excessive heat in the organs that dysfunction can develop up to total failure.



The Chi Nei Tsang massage is an extremely effective method to solve these energy blockages and flush out deposited toxins.
Since Chi Nei Tsang is intended for mainly for self-massage, no further steps are required. Anyone can see the beneficial massages you at all times and for all the family exercise ... You can feel in yourself, where tensions are found around the abdomen and edit this tension. Mantak Chia calls the 'I am my own gold-digger'.

Elixir Chi Kung - The Golden Elixir


 - Taoist alchemy, the "Chymic Wedding" in ancient China -

  In the Taoist tradition, the Elixir Chi Kung as one of the last mysteries was considered that passes on a master before he passed on to his students.
Grandmaster Mantak Chia makes this precious knowledge without restrictions and was publicly criticized for it already.
In summary, one can say humors are energized by alchemical acts with Chi. It transformed his own body juices on a not yet explored in detail, but very effective way.
   Body fluids are considered in Chinese medicine as a key indicator for vital health. Functioning of the liquids that speaks for an intact production and a good supply of organs with oxygen and nutrients for a vital sexual energy and for a sufficient combustion of nutrients. Overall, a good hydration of the body provides information on the vitality of a person.

  The West knows also similar traditions. The '' Chymic Wedding '' as the title of one of the basic writings of the Rosicrucians and as an instrument of research- adepts who possessed the keys of hermetic alchemy , Kabbalah, and astrology. In alchemy , the Chymic Wedding is understood as the union of opposites and reveals the stepped path of initiation into the last great mysteries of our existence.
  At the masterpiece of the alchemists , the production of a Philosopher's Stone , which produce gold and an immortality elixir is to be gained , one of the necessary actions is the coagulatio of matter, the attraction of being non- clotting substances in Chymic Wedding.
They referred to in the erotic imagery of alchemy the culmination of the Great Work (opus magnum ) when the White Queen (symbol: moon , silver or mercury) : combined with the Red King (sun, sulfur or gold). However, the union of polar opposites is not only an external process , but also an allegory of the inner, spiritual transformation process of a human being , because of the specific alteration of the man himself was one of the main objectives of alchemy.


The Taoists recognized the saliva as one of the sources of life. Western scientists describe saliva as an extremely complex fluid that includes a huge range of fabrics , which have the potential to influence many aspects of our physical life.
  The Golden Elixir , also known as nectar , is the source or the water of life . It is a mixture of saliva, fluids and external hormonal essences. From an alchemical point of view, but it is far more than a merely external , material process; rather is integrated by coagulation Intellectual in the matter and this thereby raised to a higher level of existence . Taoists believe that this elixir is a great transformer for the higher , spiritual work . The Golden Elixir should be able to cure diseases , and even grant immortality. Some Taoist texts recommend swallowing the saliva up to 1,000 times per day for spiritual work and healing. In the , case- Master Mantak Chia featured publicly disclosed practice exercises are only recently completed , the wear flowery names, such as '' The dragon fixed the pearl '','' The spider silk and swing the leg or '' ' ' Harvesting Golden Earthmedizin '' .
  The practical applications of alchemical traditions to their own body fluids can be learned and practiced. Grandmaster Mantak Chia teaches these precious , Taoist practices worldwide in workshops in Germany . Elixir Chi Kung is part of the UHT Cosmic Healing Branch.

Fusion of the 5 Elements ( Level 1 )

Artist Klaus Holitzka

The Fusion of the 5 Elements (1) is the first level of the higher meditations in Taoist practice, which are also known under the name of fusion of the 5 forces of the universe. It is the beginning of the inner alchemy, one - by Taoist opinion - very scientific process in which the the practitioner learns to control the energy in the own body to use the Pakua to connect with the immense forces of the universe, to be able to produce the body's substance.
These energies can be used powerfully for self-healing and the development of higher, spiritual goals.

The Fusion 1 is the first step to experiencing the formation and flow of emotional, mental and physical energies in your own body, to control and direct.
In practice, one learns how negative energies that are hidden deep in the body, can be tracked and transformed into positive energy.
Eyes, tongue, mouth, nose and ears, as well as the 5 most important, negative emotions in the organs - - In the Taoist fusion of the 5 elements a connection between the five external senses is anger, hatred, worry, sadness, and fear made​​.
When this connection is made once, the negative emotion is stored in the organs to be detected.

The Fusion 1 shows step by step how negative emotions are removed from the organs . They are neither suppressed nor enhanced or acted out . Instead, these negative energies are brought to special collection points in the body where they are neutralized and converted into positive, creative energy.
The great secret of storage and crystallization of the transformed energy into a mysterious pearl has been revealed for the first time in the alchemical formula of the merger. This pearl is the essence of our life energy or chi ( qi ) , which is in contact with the forces of the universe. With their help it is possible the whole body with energy to nourish the spirit and form a strong soul , or an energy body .
The Fusion 1 is the first essential step to comprehensive emotional and spiritual higher development .
Prerequisite for this practice are knowledge in the basic program of the Universal Tao.

Are the organs cleaned, form positive feelings of kindness, gentleness, respect, balance, justice and compassion as a natural expression of the inner equilibrium. The / the practitioner can monitor state of equilibrium by observing the nature of spontaneously forming emotions.
The power of positive emotions is used to the three from the perineum (dam point) to open from the apex extending channels which are called channel Ascending. In addition, it opens the belt channels that surround the nine main energy centers of the body.

 

 

Fusion of the 5 Elements ( Level 3 )

At the third stage of the merger , the practitioner completes the cleaning of the energy pathways in the body by opening the positive and negative channels in the arms and legs. Opening the little cycle , the anodic channel , the channel belt and the positive and negative channels in arms and legs makes the body completely transparent to the circles of life - energy. The unimpeded flow of energy is the basis for perfect physical and mental health.
The method of fusion is one of the greatest achievements of the Taoist masters , as it puts people in a position to rid the body of negative emotions and at the same time to shine the pure light of positive forces.
This traditional knowledge is still kept isolated in shamanistic and tantric traditions around the world.

Kan and Li

The Lesser Enlightenment Kan and Li:
On this, at a very high level of Taoist energy work, the sexual energy is Jing Chi (creative power) is transformed into life force. The ultimate secret of this formula is that the usual positions of fire and water are reversed to set sexual energy. The spread of sexual energy through the entire body you can imagine it as water vapor rising when the water begins to boil on the fire.

For this meditation, the inner alchemy include maintenance and development of the root center and the heart center, and the transformation of sexual energy in the navel. The formula of the smaller Kan and Li reverses the normal process of energy waste.

By interchanging the positions of the heat of the fire body comes under the coolness of the water body. Without this exchange, the fire burns easily in the air and burns the body from the inside. The water (the sexual fluids) will tend to flow down and exit the body. When the water dries up, the body breathes out his life. The process of evaporation may be extended over a long period.

The warm, moist steam generated carries tremendous energy in itself and is extremely healthy. The glands and the nervous and lymphatic systems are regenerated intensifies the circulation of energy and the body fluids.

Taoism

The Taoism (chin: 道教 from 道, dao, literally the way) is originally a Chinese philosophy, but has now developed later to a national religion.
The 'dao', as the central element of this doctrine is best understood as a comprehensive world-principle to understand is that the people are not purely rational accessible. Man should interfere as little as possible this principle through conscious action and pursuit, but live in mystical, intuitive way in accordance with this Act.
