On a clear night, we can see the cosmic path of the faraway moon and know that all waters on earth are affected by its powerful energies. This must also apply to our bodies for they are mainly water.
Are we aware of this connection, aware that each of us has microcosmic orbits as a reflection of the great cosmic paths through which WuChi or universal energy moves?
Do we accept expressions such as ‘as above, so below’ to be true without making a practical effort to understand what they mean?
And how could this greater understanding help us as human beings? Could we make our cosmic knowledge into a life experience and therefore gain from it?
Yes, we can.
A legacy of Wisdom for Chi Energy Transformation
'Thirty spokes share the wheel’s hub;
It is the center hole that makes it useful.
Shape clay into a vessel;
It is the space within that makes it useful.
Cut doors and windows for a room;
It is the holes which make it useful.
Therefore profit comes from what is there;
Usefulness from what is not there.'
– Poem 11 – Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu, translated by Gia-Fu Feng and Jane English.
Ancient Chinese sages left a legacy of wisdom for Chi Energy Transformation for those of us who are committed to spiritual healing and growth. Writings on Enlightenment of Consciousness such as ‘Secret of the Golden Flower’ were passed on to us often in an obscure or secret language.
In my many decades’ quest to understand these books of consciousness and life, I have found that to siphon their meaning is only possible through practice that brings an experiential-intuitive understanding of them.
But what amazing revelations are in store for those who stay with their commitment and practice!
In the early nineties, I had an opportunity to study with Master Mantak Chia,
who brought many of the Chinese esoteric practices into a western format.
My on-going commitment is to give you, in as a practical format as possible, what I learned about the expansion of consciousness during my long quest and the practices it entailed.
Everything you read on the HappySoulHealthyBody pages is given in the spirit of Loving Tao, which to me means trusting the process while each of us takes responsibility individually for the journey.
How to Purify and Channel Chi along the MicroCosmic Path?
Chi Energy Meditation, Inner Smile (on our Meditation Guide page) and Micro Cosmic Orbit you learn here, focus on purifying and channelling Chi. Since they centre within the body, they are – like other Chinese meditation exercises – grounded and grounding.
Therefore they are safe to practice when done according to the instructions. My recommendation to you is to learn the Chi Energy Meditation and Inner Smile first and use the awareness gained from their practices as a foundation for your further cosmic education.
The mid-line cosmic path within us runs through the centres (chakras), which are like wheels in motion – Chi energy moving in a spiral fashion, the way it flows on all levels of creation. Think of the pictures you have seen of DNA!
Each centre corresponds to nerves, organs and glands, and your concentration on the circulation of pure Light Chi through the points along the central cosmic path helps transform negative energy of your cellular memories to positive light energy of higher standard.
Circulation of Light
The main cosmic path for the Circulation of Light follows the Conception channel in the front and the Governing channel at the back, both running along the center of the body. You can purify, re-enforce and stimulate the Chi within this microcosmic path by concentrating on its flow through the fourteen centers. This then benefits your whole being.
Baihui or ‘Hundred Meetings’ is the highest point in the body and is used in ancient acupuncture to alleviate headache, dizziness, to clear the senses and mental disorders, to calm the spirit, to stabilize and strengthen the Yang energy.
In all meditation exercises, Baihui is a pivotal point in connecting to your higher self in order to consciously draw in all-embracing and all-loving universal cosmic energy. Concentration on this point inspires receptivity and thankfulness as you begin to experience the seamless oneness that permeates the universe.
From Baihui you consciously move its cleansing Chi to the mid-eyebrow point Yintang, sometimes called the Wisdom Eye. It is used for headache, dizziness, hypertension, insomnia, common cold, and one of its traditional functions is to calm the spirit.
Here you can connect with the balanced Yin/Yang energy and set the circulation of light along your cosmic path into orbit by moving along the Functional channel to the Throat centre, the Heart, Solar Plexus, the Naval, the Sexual centre.
From Perineum – Huiyin or Conception 1 (‘the million dollar point’) the energy moves upwards along the Governing channel. At the Sacral Pump, your mind and breath may have to give a conscious ‘push’ to the energy for it go upwards.
Chi then moves to Life gate or Mingmen. It corresponds to the Kidneys, is parallel to the navel in front. The next point at the back is T11 or Adrenal point opposite the Solar Plexus.
The back Heart point is parallel to the one in the front, circle the energy there, then move to the back Throat point and from there to Jade pillow or ‘Mouth of God’. Another name for this area is Cranial Pump, where you consciously move the energy through the cerebellum back to Baihui.
At Baihui, by being receptive and childlike you receive more of the universal undifferentiated Wu Chi, and you may already feel tingling sensations in the upper part of the brain as new neural pathways are being made. After diligent practice, they become more prominent and you may see and experience your ‘Golden Flower’ that opens up new cosmic knowledge bringing happiness and creativity.
Stay focused on Wu Chi, be thankful and sincere, and repeat the process again and again along with your cosmic path. Of course, if you are an Indigo child or otherwise aware of the Generative Force (Kundalini) already functioning, you may just become more aware of the flow and continuous expansion of your consciousness.
Energy in the Service of Good Intention
Remember that energy is one with intention, it moves the way you want it to move when you have a clear inner vision with focused attention. Eventually, this intention command is not needed and the focus shifts to your Chi breathing along with the microcosmic path.
The strong power may feel as if gushing through the cosmic path rather than stopping at any of the centres. As the alignment with Wu Chi and the circulation of light becomes clearer, the breath becomes wider, the Chi flows naturally dissolving all the blocks along its cosmic path bringing smile to every cell. And often, I do not focus on every centre as a moving spiral but trust or feel that this is happening anyway.
When Wu Chi at Baihui is in focus, I hear the name Immanuel (to me meaning the Will of the Creator) and that triggers a sense of devotion, thankfulness and praise, which in turn expands my consciousness more and more. I stay at Baihui in a state of worship, feeling blissful. On an out-breath, I finally bring the blessings along the front channel down to Mother Earth and stay in her love and generosity – for she is one with the Great Cosmic Mother.
Of course, this work is not be done in a day, but if you are committed, your inner guidance is always available. And after each practice, you can consciously collect the evolving ‘pearl’ energy in a special cosmic space where your original generative force resides.
Complete each practice by placing your palms on the lower abdomen and let the pearl energy circulate in the place where your earth life started at the time of conception.
