Circulating sexual energy “Shakti” is the pathway to an empowered and sexually masterful man.
The hardest part of conserving the sexual energy for any man is the transition phase. It is initially a shock for a body that has been expending sexual fluids externally for its entire lifetime to suddenly stop and reverse the process to the inside rather than the outside.
What must be understood is the fact that orgasm and ejaculation are two separate processes that do not necessarily have to happen at the same time. The two can be separated by the mind and especially the PC muscles(the muscles that surround the prostate, the huiyin or perineum). Breathing plays a role of relaxing the the body and beginning of creating an altered state of consciousness.
The healing power of orgasmic energy has its utmost potential when expanded whole body orgasms are experienced.
An ejaculatory orgasm is situated in the genital region only, but when orgasmic energy is drawn up by the mind to higher channels from the genital region, it can be circulated into the microcosmic orbit to reinvigorate other parts of the body.
Before you can even dream of drawing this creative power upwards you need to stop ejaculating, which sends all the power out of the body!
“Your spirit resides in your Upper Dan Tian(Third eye area), and when it is amply supplied with Qi, it is “raised,” or energized. If the Qi stopped nourishing your brain and spirit, you would lose your mental center, your judgment would become faulty, and you would become depressed and mentally unbalanced.” – Dr Yang Jwing Ming, The Root of Chinese Qigong.
The microcosmic orbit is the circuit of energy that runs around the body of a balanced healthy individual. The human body is a microcosm of the universe and just like the solar system has a central sun (solar plexus) and an orbit of energy circulating around it, so do we all have this layout playing out within us.
This orbit, which loops up the spine to the head and down the front to the navel, genitals and perineum, is recognized by acupuncturists as the main energy channel in the body linking the various organs, glands, and brain.
It is important for a person to understand the direction and path this circuit flows around the body. Most important of all, it is paramount to determine whether you don’t have any blockages within the two main channels that can prevent the free flow of the energy/chi/etheric energy.
There is the conception vessel, starting from the huiyin cavity(midway between the anus and the genital region) which flows from the huiyin up to the navel, chest, up the throat to the tip of the tongue where it links to the Governing Channel.
The whole circuit becomes one with the help of the tongue (Yin/Yang linking vessel) that connects the two and allows them to circulate as one. Physically connecting the tongue to the palate is crucial in most Qigong practice.
“Chinese Qigong practitioners believe that the Qi must be full and circulate strongly in these two vessels, for then they will be able to govern the entire body’s Qi effectively. They also believe that as a child you continually move the abdomen while breathing, which keeps the path of these two vessels clear. However, as you get older and gradually lose the habit of this abdominal movement, the path becomes obstructed and the Qi circulation weakens. The most significant blockage can occur in the Huiyin cavity (Co-1)” – Dr. Yang Jwing Ming, The root of Chinese Qigong
The once secret method to circulate the extra JING energy is from the Huiyin, through the coccyx and up the spine to the top of the crown and back down again down the forehead through the palate and tongue, down the throat, chest, solar plexus and to the navel center where the energy can be stored.
The navel chakra is the storehouse of chi energy and is the primary area where you need to store energy after all inner alchemic exercises involving bio-electric/chi energy.
Working with bio-electric energy(chi) in your body can be just as dangerous as a fast-food chef doing an electricians job… especially when there is a very high current involved due to the introduction of sexual energy into the orbit, which changes the dynamics and potentials of everything!
There are four channels that need to be clear and unobstructed, these are the Huiyin Co-1, Coccyx or Chang Chiang GO-1, mingmen GO-4, chi-chung GO-6 and Yu-Chen or the cranial pump BL-9 (The cranial pump is the cranial nerves exchanging information with the brain and various parts of the body).
From my experience the practice of yoga is the best way to open up these channels which may well be blocked in most individuals following western modern lifestyles.
