I have been practicing the Whispering Palms for over a year now, even though not daily, and the 1st Tibetan movement within the series continues to amaze me. I do admit I have been moving through the series much like an exercise within the last 6 months or so as my mind is pulled in many directions. I simply acknowledge that that is where I’m at now, and continuing practicing the movements is still affective for me even at a physical well-being level.
Why I’m writing today is because, I have been very aware of how this one simple movement in the series has helped me build or re-build the strength of my solar plexus, allowing me to have healthier boundaries of self so I may be better centered when in relation with others… but something very different happened in my practice yesterday.
Taking more care of how I express the gestures, I simply held my arms round more generously, in a bigger embrace during the 1st Tibetan… and bam, my heart center opened at a place it hadn’t been open for in years. Something freed, allowing me to move into a deeper aspect of this practice.
I was amazed at how this one simple gesture within the whole series can have such different impacts at such different levels. It makes me wonder, the more I continue with the practice, what more will all these little gestures open me up to, and the depth that each of these gestures can get.
In joyful and humbled embrace :)
I am so glad to see that your central axis is finding powerful alignment that is increasing your sense of well being.
There are two ways for the Tibetans to be done. The first way – which you have learned – increases the primordial chi within the lower dantien. In essence this reservoir of vitality extends to the whole endocrine system.
The second way employs dragon coiling, which in turn creates telekinesis and enhances one’s empathic abilities.
The Tibetans are a very special set that strengthens the kidneys and solar plexus region. In actuality there is a convergence of thirteen major powers that reside within the solar plexus and the heart simultaneously. The kidneys are vital for one’s will power, in terms of fortifying the heart, in turn opening the shen, which resides within the eyes and internally the third eye matrix that stores all of our memories, presently and inter-dimensionally.
