Powerful Meditation to create Joy and Bliss


This meditation is based on a wonderfully simple but also richly meaningful haiku by Matsuo Basho,
the most famous poet of Japan's Edo period from 1603 to 1868:
Year after year
... on the monkey's face
a monkey face.
Ha, isn't that great?

Let's play with this haiku a little bit and turn it into a meditation you can use to fill any hectic or empty spots in your life with peace and bliss.




Here are the “how to” details...

Take a long, slow deep breath.

Hold for a second.

Exhale slowly.

Repeat several times until you're clear and still.

Now visualize instead of the monkey's face your own face.

This might be tough at first. Think of looking at your face in the mirror. That should bring up an image or a thought pattern like an image. Either will work.

Once you have your face in mind, breathe it in and out for a few breaths.

Nice and slow breaths.

Nice and deep breaths.

Now instead of your face in the mirror, breathe in your face before you were born.

Hold for a second.

Exhale slowly and completely let go of your face before you were born.

Repeat breathing in your face before you were born and letting go of it until you feel a physical shiver of bliss.

Then repeat as long as you can stand the sheer joy of complete peace of mind, but don't do it at work because you might get fired from your job.

Do not, repeat, do NOT try to understand this meditation intellectually because trying to do that might drive you insane. :)
Well, that wouldn't happen but trying to understand it intellectually isn't going to get you anywhere but to Frustration City. Instead, just do it. And then let go of your face before you were born.

Wow, that's bliss and peace of mind.

Note: This is an extremely powerful meditation so it's worth working with. Don't try it with three wimpy breaths and then give up. Practice it every day.

Once you get it, kaboom, you'll know you now have something for the rest of your life that is very, very special!

Qigong for Strengthening the Kidneys

In Chinese Medicine, as in reality, there is no way to separate the mind and the body.

The most pronounced emotion related to Kidney Deficiency is fear. This type of imbalance would be marked with unfounded fear and anxiety during everyday life rather than fear relating to true danger. 

Unchecked, it can manifest as infertility, sexual dysfunction, menopause, prostate problems, impaired immunity, chronic inflammation, high blood pressure, heart irregularities and anxiety.


Adrenal glands sit on top of the kidneys and produce adrenaline that participates in the body’s fight/flight/freeze response and cortisol that stimulates stress. Long-term adrenaline and cortisol over production, partly brought on by chronic fear, can lead to adrenal burnout and chronic fatigue.



The kidney meridian starts at the underside center of the foot. It moves to the inside of the foot and circles the ankle. Then it moves up the inside of each leg, through the groin, and up the center of the torso about an inch fr…

Bliss Meditation

If you are familiar with Kundalini, you will no doubt be familiar with the use of the Serpent to describe this energy and power. 

Kundalini is often equated to a coiled serpent lying asleep at the base of spine, which, then with the practice of Kundalini Yoga, is awakened and made to rise up to the crown of the head.

In addition to this analogy, increased encounters with serpents are also often reported by those in the midst of a Kundalini Awakening.
 These encounters don't necessarily have to be with the real live snakes. These reports generally indicate that there is just a greater presence of snakes in their lives all of sudden, in the form of pictures, dreams, conversations, TV shows, books, etc.
There are also the more incredible stories regarding snakes, especially cobras, and those with awakened Kundalini. An example of this is the cobra that would often visit U.G. Krishnamurti at night at his house.  This cobra would hiss and bang at the door and in general make a lot of rucku…

Zhan Zhuang - Foundation of Internal Martial Arts

I found another good article on my favorite topic.

Zhan Zhuang - foundation of Internal Martial Artsby Karel Koskuba

Most Internal Martial Arts use some form of standing practice as foundation training (and Taijiquan is no exception in this regard). 

These standing exercises are usually called Zhan Zhuang(pole standing); sometimes they are called 'Standing Qigong'.

The standing exercises are supposed torelax and help you'accumulate Qi'. In this article I shall try to outline my theory that should explain, from western perspective, why these exercises are so important both for Internal Martial Arts and Qigong, how this western view correlates with the traditional Qiview and give training advice on how to practice them. In writing this article I have drawn upon my experience from Taijiquan, Yiquan and information from medical postural rehabilitation research and sports science.
