Ki Breathing

Breath In and out

Breath In and out

God proceeded to blow into his nostrils the ‘Breath of Life’ and the man came to be a living soul.

Man proceeded to blow into his mouth the ‘Breath of Life’ and artificial respiration kept him alive.

Breathing is life. Ki breathing is health and extended life. The oldest form of study known to man was based on animals, such as the elephant, which lived the longest also breathed the slowest. Those breathing more quickly, like the cat, had a shorter life. Man breathes somewhere in between. The conclusion was that by slowing down the breathing rate it was possible to extend the life.

Importance is also stressed on completely filling the lungs with oxygen, thus utilising every air cell. The human body, being a miniature universe, regulates like a clock and has internal rythms in harmony with cosmic rythms. If they are disturbed, illnes may follow.

Modern physics has discovered that everything in the universe is in continual motion and that there is a force behind that motion. It is known as ‘Ki’ Chi, Prana or Mana and the vital force, which is within evrything to a greater or lesser degree.
Breath In and out

One of the best sources of Ki is air. The oxygen we breathe is utilised to the maximum through the practice of the Complete Lung Breath, the Alternate Nostril Breath and other Pranayama exercises.

Prana means energy Yama means to hold. The important factor in Pranayama is to hold the air within, thus allowing the energy to reach every part of the body. This primes up the body full of energy before Practicing ReiKi.

An added bonus of slow breathing is the calmness it brings. The person who breathes calmly and slowly lives longer. The person who breathes quickly dies quickly. Be calm and live long!

N.B. Practise this before the Dr Usui Joshin Technique.

Manipura Self-Regeneration Technique

The human body has a storehouse for energy within the solar plexus, just as the sun stores energy for its planetary system. This energy is called Prana or Ki. It is the life force behind all things in our universe.

We can enervate more Ki to any depleted part of the body by using the mind, the nucleus of the body, to direct it to where it is needed. This activates the nucleus within the cells of the body in need of assistance.

Practise the Manipura self-healing method as follows:

lie down in a cornfortable position. Support any painful areas of your body with folded towels or pillows underneath. Repeat the words “ReiKi on” or “LeiKi on” 3 times and wish for your own healing to take place. Relax the feet, legs and lower trunk. Now feel the head. shoulders, aims, hands and upper trunk letting go.

Visualisation of the Manipura ChakraVisualise your solar plexus area, the Manipura Chakra, being generated with a bright, luminous yellow healing streaming down from the sun above. This energy is re-filiing your own solar centre which is a ball of revolving energy radiation outwards.

Now, take your mind to the top of your head, feeling the scalp relax As the forehead smoothes out allow the relaxing energy to draw down your body to the solar plexus. Let the eyes sink back into the sockets and feel the eyelashes touching with the energy f1owine downwards. Lips together, teeth apart and jaw hanging loose see the energy continue down through the neck. Allow the shoulders to drop down, relaxing, as the energy t1ows downwards through the chest and ribs into the solar plexus. From the top of the spine to the mid-hack and from the fingers up through the arms, feel energy moving down to the solar plexus Chakra.

Visualise and feel the Manipura – solar plexus Chakra radiating more brightly

Clearly see in your mind’s eye the toes and feet. Feel each foot falling outwards as you relax. Allow the energy in the feet to allow gently up to your solar plexus. Notice the calves loosening and thighs letting go. Draw the Ki energy upwards to the solar plexus area.

Feel the buttocks sinking down and the tummy releasing tension. Be aware of the energy moving upwards through those areas and the pelvis. From the hips up to the solar plexus. Through the spine to the mid-back.

Visualise and feel the Manipura – solar plexus Chakra radiating more brightly. Tune into your body and any part which is in pain or requires healing See and feel the solar plexus area full of ki energy which is a bright yellow colour.

Send the Manipura energy to relieve pain or to repair and heal any area of need. Visualise a stream of energy flowing tn that specific area and any dark spots filling with light from the solar plexus storehouse.

Keep pumping energy and light from the solar plexus to the weak parts of your body, until you feel it is sufficient

Now send the Ki energy from the Manipura Chakra back out to all parts of your body and be aware of a more balanced state.

Give thanks for your own healing which has taken place and thanks to the lei (God Love Energy) and Ki (Life Force Universal Energy).

Wriggle your fingers and toes. stretch your arms above your head and slowly move your body. Take deeper breaths in and out and come back up to surface.

You have connected your mind to the cell within and the universe without all of which has connected with the highest infinite light and love, described on planet earth in many ways.
