BONE MARROW CLEANSING
I have been working through a deep blockage that has been bringing up a lot of unpleasant emotions (anger, fear) that seems tied to some traumatic childhood experiences and possibly past lives.
I practice basic chi kung exercises like "Lifting the Sky" a few times a month. Anything more seems to cause over-cleansing and the emotions become too difficult to manage.
Cleansing unpleasant emotions that seem tied to some traumatic experiences in past lives can be well done with Bone Marrow Cleansing, especially at the organ level, and lastly at the bone marrow level. But you can cleanse the negative emotions using Five-Animal Plan and 18 Lohan Hands.
Practicing "Lifting the Sky" a few times a month is insufficient. You need to practice chi kung everyday, just about 10 minutes a session, 2 sessions a day. Just doing that -- i.e. practicing chi kung 10 minutes a session, twice a day -- will clear your negative emotions, overcome any illness, and give you good health, vitality and longevity. It will also make you lucky.
Bone Marrow Cleansing at the organ level, and at the bone marrow level if needed, is excellent in cleansing deep rooted emotional problems. If it is fear that troubles you, you can cleanse your kidneys; if it is anxiety, you can cleanse your stomach; and if it is sadness, you can cleanse your lungs. If you are not sure what the negative emotions are, you can perform Bone Marrow Cleansing at different levels.
If the negative emotions are deep rooted, like caused by past lives, it is excellent to cleanse them using Bone Marrow Cleansing. If they are at the surface or recently caused, they can be cleansed using Five-Animal Play or 18 Lohan Hands.
The depth of mind and skills in practice are important in cleansing as well as in building. If the negative emotions are caused by past lives, or if a person wants to build a lot of internal force for marital arts or scholarly studies, he should go deep in the depth of mind, and apply high-level skills. If the negative emotions are recently caused or if he wants some internal force and mental clarity for daily living, he can be relatively shallow in his mind focus and apply low-level skills.
Irrespective of whether he is elementary or advanced, he should guard against over-training. Our arts are very powerful; it is easy to over-train. Over-training occurs when ones physical body cannot take the rapid increase of results.
Of course, the over-training differs between an elementary practitioner and an advanced practitioner. What is over-training for an elementary practitioner may be insufficient for an advanced practitioner.
Over-training also differs in time for the same person. What is over-training when he first begins practicing chi kung may be just right for him after two years of daily training.
Of course, the depth of mind and the level of skills are different between an elementary practitioner and an advanced practitioner. An advanced practitioner can regulate his depth of mind and level of skills, but a beginner can't.
Most practitioners in other schools practice gentle physical exercise though they use chi kung techniques. Practicing gentle physical exercise no matter for how long cannot overcome illness.
For an advanced practitioner like you, using a simpler exercise like "Lifting the Sky" can cleanse at the organ level like Bone Marrow Cleansing if you enter the mind level and apply skills appropriately. You can start with lower level of mind and skills, and gradually increase them.
