Transforming Sexual to Subtle Energies

page 2

The most notable change occurred with my mudra work, which I had been doing steadily for eight years. Until the new sexual transmutation meditations, I had largely used static or unmoving mudras. Nevertheless, I had experimented with energy-generating hand positions of my own, apart from traditional yoga mudras. Up to this time, I can't say that I really had noticed any clearly obvious effects of these specific hand gestures, only that I was fascinated with them and felt they were somehow valuable.

The new alchemical meditations energized my hands, and I began standing and moving with a new variety of gestures. I could not put this work down because it felt as if I was experiencing a much deeper level of energy development. I think I may have startled my neighbors when I rushed out to do moving mudras under the blooming apple trees in the small village of northern New Mexico where I had lived for seven years.

In short, I felt that I was in tune with a higher vibration than I had previously experienced. I began processing and fine-tuning my experiments by using the kinesthetic sense of internal energy moving in the body, i.e., the movement of energy that creates a bodily sensation. I relied on this kinesthetic sense to test the truth of an idea, movement, or procedure of the accompanying work. For example, I thought of a way to capture the natural movement of energy out of the sex organs and across the lower abdomen for use in transmutation in the higher chakras. I developed a specific set of mudras for this exercise. The idea was to do the mudras followed by a sitting meditation, and this practice enabled me to take in the lower chakra energy and move it upwards. I could distinctly feel the stream of energy across the abdomen, the "capture" of the energy, and the movement of the energy into the higher chakras.

At first, I was making the moving mudras with a good deal of angularity and stopped motions, what in dance is known as "bound flow". The energy was moving from within my body and I noticed that angular movements reduced or cut off the flow. As I processed the gestures I began experimenting, using rounded movements. I found that spiraling the hands, arms, and even the rest of the body allowed for the greatest continuous flow of energy.

As I continued working with the Omega mudras, I felt that I accessed an external energy source. One day I was dancing around, playing with the internal energy when I felt a current rush in reverse of the way I had been working with it. This occurred when the motion of the hands completed a specific spiral. The moment of completion felt like the access point to external energy. I began to visualize great, curving spirals coming out of the skies, and I could feel the external energy come into my body as I connected with these spiritual trajectories. One of the first mudras I worked on with the new sense of external energy I called Unicorn Touches Omega. This mudra and posture is performed by one hand with a finger extended spiraling above the brow chakra while the other hand with a finger extended repeats the gesture in back, below the base of the spine. I would dance around, gently moving with the internal energy gradually moving in spirals to reach the external energy access points. With Unicorn Touches Omega this access point allowed a single, external sine wave to move through the body.
