Bone Breathing and Marrow Washing

Bone Breathing is one of the main practices of Cosmic Healing Chi Kung. This is a method of drawing external Chi through the skin into the bones to help replenish the bone marrow, thereby reactivating the production of white blood cells. Sending Chi into the bones will enhance functioning of the immune system. This process also helps to clean out fat in the bone marrow ("Washing the Marrow"), one of the main causes of osteoporosis (brittleness of the bones). Tension in the muscles close to the bones is decreased so Chi and blood can flow into the bones easily, enabling them to become stronger.

The Bone Breathing process uses the mind and the eyes to absorb Chi into the bones. The better your Bone Breathing is the better your Cosmic Healing Chi Kung practice will be. Mind and eyes are also used immediately after the exercise to gather the energy at the navel. Once you have it, when you move your hand, the energy will follow easily. You will be able to absorb external Chi effortlessly, so you will not need to use your own energy in your healing work.

Bone Breathing

There are several variations in the Bone Breathing and Marrow Washing process. Here we will introduce you to the first type of Bone Breathing, inhaling and exhaling Chi through the skin and packing it into the bones. In this method, you imagine that your bones are like hollow tubes, and that you breathe and suck the Chi into the bones.

Bone Breathing is practiced in a three-stage process. Let your breathing follow a normal pace. Do not strain or hold your breath too long.

1. You can do this practice in the sitting position or in the Embracing the Tree posture (or any other Iron Shirt Chi Kung posture). You will use your mind and eye power to breathe in a short breath and at the same time feel suction. Suck the Chi of the atmosphere into your hands, eventually expand to the universe and breathe in a few more times. Use a combination of 'mind/eyes/heart' power (Yi), to suck the Chi from the atmosphere into your hands, while taking small sips of breath. Once you can clearly feel the increase of Chi 'pressure' in your hands, you extend the feeling throughout your arms. The whole skin surface of the arms breathes in the Chi, feeling the skin holding this pressure.

2. Inhale one more deep breath and lightly contract the arm muscles to squeeze the Chi into the bones. Hold for a while to condense the Chi into the marrow of your bones. Exhale and at the same time feel a distinct heaviness in the bones, meaning that the Chi has been condensed and packed into the bones successfully. Eventually you will use more mental power (mind/eyes/heart power) and less muscle, using soft breathing, to draw the force into the bones. Do 6 to 9 times; rest and feel the Chi that has been condensed into the bones.

3. Proceed in the same way, breathing in progressively through the bones of the forearms, upper arms, scapulae, collarbone, sternum and ribs. You may feel a different sensation as you breathe in each area; in some areas the feeling is cool, in others warm or tingling, depending on the bone structure and the quality of the marrow.

4. Inhale and exhale in the same way through the toes, feet and legs; then, in a step-by-step progression, inhale up through the calf bones, thighbones, pelvis, coccyx and sacrum, and up the spinal column to the C-7 vertebrae.

5. Finally breathe in through the arms and legs simultaneously. Combine their energy as it flows up past C-7 and up through the neck and skull. Breathe in this way for at least nine breaths. Conclude by collecting energy at the navel.

Marrow Washing

You can wash your bone marrow with earth force, heavenly force or with cosmic force. This energy helps to cleanse and rejuvenate the bone marrow.

Heavenly Force Marrow Washing with Violet Light

1. Men place the left palm on the top of the head, and cover it with the right palm. Be aware of your 'Personal Star' (star that appears in your mind's eye and is located above your crown), above. Slightly press the palms and spiral in the clockwise direction, spiralling from the front to the right ear, to the back and the left ear 9 times; rest and feel the increased Chi pressure in the crown. Do 3 sets.

2. Women place the right palm on the top of the head and cover it with the left palm. Be aware of your Personal Star above you. Press the palms lightly and spiral in a counterclockwise direction, spiralling from the front to the left ear, to the back and the right ear 9 times; rest and feel the increased Chi pressure in crown. Do 3 sets.

3. Face your palms towards Heaven and feel that you are scooping a galactic Chi ball from above. This Chi ball contains the North Star (Violet) and the Big Dipper (Red). See the dipper fill with violet/red energy. Imagine you reach out your arms to hold the dipper handle and pour the violet/red liquid over your crown. It will feel like there is a numbness descending. Your palms face down to your crown and pour the whole galaxy onto your crown. You may perceive this energy as violet amethyst and red light frequencies. Smile.

4. Guide this sensation down into your skull, deep into your brain, cervical vertebrae, sternum, thoracic vertebrae, lumbar vertebrae and down through your legs. Feel it penetrating and enlivening your bones, deep into the bone marrow, washing, cleansing, energizing. This 'liquid-like' Chi spills all the way down to your feet. Feel it connecting with the earth through the soles of your feet; be aware of the bubbling springs in the feet (the K1 points of the kidney meridian) breathing and pulsating.

5. Touch your navel with the fingers of both hands. Focus on the door of life, and let the fire activate in the Tan Tien and kidneys. Chi will rise up to the brain.

6. Move your hands down touching your femur bones; feel your hands penetrate into the bone and into the bone marrow. Feel like an electric shock or a tingling moving all the way down through the bones of the leg and down to the soles of your feet.

7. Slowly move your fingers down touching the bone and into bone marrow and extend yourself down past the earth to touch the galaxy on the other side. Raise your sacrum and picture yellow light coming up from the earth and the other side of the galaxy; focus on the Lower Tan Tien and feel it fill with Chi. Do this three times. Go back down to the squatting position.

8. Place the palms face down to the earth and be aware of the galaxy and the yellow light; make three to six circles to gather the Chi below. Gather the yellow Chi; touch your heels and feel the yellow Chi flowing up the leg bones. Feel the bubbling of your bones like an electric current running up through the feet, tibia and fibula, femur, pelvis, and spine. While touching your bone and bone marrow with your fingers, slide your hands up along the back of your legs; slowly come all the way up to touch the coccyx and the sacrum. Concentrate on your sexual center so the energy will flow and spread out to the sexual organs. Go back to the navel and gather the Chi into your Tan Tien.
