Elixir Chi Kung
The Golden Elixir, Taoist Alchemy, the "Chymical Wedding" in ancient China
In the Taoist tradition, the Elixir Chi Kung was considered one of the last secrets that a master passes on to his students before he dies. Grand Master Mantak Chia makes this precious knowledge without restrictions public and has already been heavily criticized.
In summary, one can say that one's own humors are energized by alchemical actions with chi. One transforms one's own humors in an unsearched but extremely effective way. The Elixir Chi Kung is part of the shamanistic traditions and belongs to the Cosmic Healing Chi Kung.
Humors are considered a key indicator of vital health in Chinese medicine. If the fluids function, this indicates intact production and good supply of oxygen and nutrients to the organs, vital sexual energy and sufficient nutrient combustion. Overall, a good hydration of the body provides information about the vitality of a person.
The West also knows comparable traditions. The '' Chymical Wedding '' as the title of one of the Rosicrucian scriptures and as an instrument of exploring adepts possessing the hermetic keys of alchemy, kabbalah and astrology. In alchemy, the Chymical Wedding is understood as the union of opposites and reveals the gradual way of initiation into the last great secrets of our existence.
One of the necessary actions is the coagulatio of matter, the coagulation of unconscious substances in a chymical wedding, in the masterpiece of the alchemists, the making of a stone of the wise, with which gold is to be produced and an immortality elixir is to be won.
In the erotic pictorial symbolism of alchemy it marks the culmination of the Great Work (opus magnum), when the white queen (symbol: moon, silver or mercury) unites with the red king (symbol: sun, sulfur or gold). The unification of the polar opposites is not only an external process, but also an allegory of the inner, mental transformation process of a human, since the targeted change of man himself was one of the most important goals of alchemy.
The Taoists recognized saliva as one of the sources of life. Western scientists describe saliva as an extremely complex fluid that contains a vast array of substances that have the potential to affect many aspects of our physical lives.
The Golden Elixir, also known as nectar, is the source or the water of life. It is a mixture of saliva, hormonal fluids and external essences. From an alchemical point of view, however, this is much more than just an external material process; Rather, the coagulation of spirituality is integrated into matter, which raises it to a higher level of existence.
Taoists believe that this elixir is a great transformer for the higher, spiritual work. The Golden Elixir should be able to cure diseases that grant immortality. Some Taoist texts recommend swallowing saliva up to 1,000 times a day for mental work and healing. In the practice presented by Grand Master Mantak Chia, only recently public exercises are performed that carry flowery names, such as 'The dragon fixes the pearl' ',' 'The silk spin and the leg swing' 'or' 'Harvesting the Golden Earth Medicine' '.
The practical applications of alchemical traditions to one's own humors can be learned and practiced.
