Collecting Chi Energy after Practice

1. Preventing Side Effects

After each practice, stand silently erect for a few moments. Concentrate your attention on the navel, collecting the Chi there. As the Chi sinks down, stroke the chest from top to bottom with the palms of the hands. This prevents congestion of the chest and heart, as well as other side effects, such as heartburn, headache and eye pain. Move your hands to release the congestion and walk around until you feel the energy settle down.

After practicing Iron Shirt, take time to do the Microcosmic Orbit Meditation, also called the "Awaken Healing Energy" meditation, as described in Chapter 2. During your Iron Shirt Practice, you generate tremendous energy which tends to flow up and become trapped in the brain and the chest, especially in the heart. With practice, you will be able to direct the energy down to the navel from all sides and collect it there. (Fig. 3.81) As your practice of Iron Shirt progresses, you will open up the navel area more for the storage of energy to be utilized in the higher spiritual practice.

2. Sitting and Standing Positions for Collecting Energy

When you have finished the Iron Shirt Practice, you should sit down to collect the energy that you have built up.

Sit on the edge of a chair using your sitting bones to find that delicate point of balance which will help hold you erect. (Fig. 3.82 (a)). Men should sit far enough forward to allow the scrotum to hang freely. Women should also sit forward and should keep genitalia covered to avoid energy loss. The back must be comfortably erect, the head bowed slightly forward.

Stand straight, touch the tongue to the palate, and put the palm on the navel. (Fig. 3.82 (b)) Smile down to the organs and bring the energy to them. Let the energy circulate in a circle, starting from the navel down to the perineum and up the sacrum, to the spine, to the top of the crown and down the third eye to the tongue, to the heart, to the solar plexus, and to the navel. Do this several times and collect Chi in the navel by circulating it 36 times outward and 24 times inward to the navel.
