I for some reason felt drawn to do the next exercise as well. Which I will update right now as far as the previous one goes I’ve asked and it seems I was ready to move on.
Exercise 4: like the other exercises you’ll need to open the chakras however since I’ve already done that previousl there was no need. However when you do it if you take one exercise at a time go right ahead and do that first. I was a bit sloppy but the exercise worked iregardless, that being said I am pretty sure I’ll need to revisit this exercise tomorrow before moving on to the next innitation.
This exercise is pretty intense in that, after you open the chakras you have to find the event horizon or the critical mass - where your hands push and pull equally then once that’s found, you’ll have to energize your manipura chakra making it bigger than normal and then release the energy inebwteen your hands forming a ball, it should be hot to the touch and the space should increase sas a result. Once the ball has been suffciently added upon with energy from the manipurah chakra you go ahead and either channel it back through the arms (not recommended) or you reinsert the yellow ball back into the manipurah chakra manually. Once that is done repeat the process with the Anahatah and Ajna chakra, leave the other chakras alone as well as well as don’t pull the energy from them, you channel energy from one chakra at a time. After each insertion take a small break until you’ve completed the set.
That’s the first half - or if you do it one sittin - you create a sphere around just like in exercise 6 of the first flame, you channel one of the four elements (fire, earth, water or air) depending on which you feel the most drawn to, from there you channel it into you and then you release it and create a ball of the element inbetween your hands until it reaches the critical mass. Once that is done you’ve completed the lesson. After you have gone through the previous step you tilt your head back and open your mouth and release the excess energy.
I belong to the try hard people or rather the - go big or go home type of peopl, and since I have some time on my hands right now I did the exercise in one sitting, it’s recommended but if it’s too intense you chop the lesson up.
In this case here’s what happened after relaxing and just checking that the chakras was open, which they were, I made sure to take my time with each step of the process. I began by putting my finger tips together paralell at the navel and my palms rested a few inches apart, from there I focused on the space inbetween my hands and pretty quickly my hands started to drift apart (in order for this happen naturally, relax and focus). Once critical mass had been found, the point where the magentic energy of my hands is pushed and pulled equally - about 12 inches for me (the span ranges from 4 - 12 inches according to the book). While attempting to let my hands be and do whatever they wanted, its a harder than it seems, I focused on the manipurah chakra and imagined it getting bigger and bigger until it reached the size of a football and as a result I could feel the bioeletricity in that area becoming pretty dang solid, the density in the magentic field inbetween my hands started to increase and from there I exhaled the energy into my hands for several reptitions just to be sure and for each time I did that, the density of the energy inbetween my hands not only increased but also by simply imagining the energy forming a golden yellow ball my hands, it looked something like this:
had to move apart of their own accord, the sensation is indescribeable, you have to experience this to realize you can’t fake your way into doing this right. Once it had been done and reached a solid sphere about the size of a football (it took a while) I had simply moved my hands togther ontop of another and held the sphere in place with my will and the energy in my hands and simply inserted right in the middle of the area above belly button and below your ribcage which where the chakra rest. Believe me it wasn’t easy, it was hard reinserting I actually had to use gentle but firm physical force to ensure it got resinserted. Once that was done I felt intensly energized only that area but mostly the top chakras - the ajna and sahasrarah chakra vibrated a lot. I had to take a a break and repeated the exercise.
The other two chakras was very similar but I guess you want the details on this exercise. I repeated the first few steps above place my fingertips barely touching against each other and my palms resting a few inches apart paralell to the navel. Focusing inbetween my hands once more they drifted a part a little bit easier than the last time, which in hindsight makes a lot of sense. At any rate once the cirtical mass had been found. I focused on my Anahatah chakra I just allowed my hands to do whatever they wanted just focusing on the chakra as it grew in size made the density of the magentic energy become a whole lot more tangible pretty quickly I might add. Once the bioeletric sphere had reached the size of a handball, you can really feel this if you take your time the ball, oce you feel once you focus on it and imagine it becoming bigger it can even feel uncomfortable as a result I know it did for me, I pushed the built up energy into my hands the ball became green instead of yellow it kind of looked like this internally:
I repeated the step from here as in pushing more energy until I could it becoming pretty large almost the size of the hand ball and then I held the green ball into place with my mind layed my hand ontop of the other and inserted it back into the Anahatah chakra, it was just as intense as the last time except I had taken longer with this one so the reistance was stronger than the last one, to me this is a good sign that you’ve made it with this exercise.I felt pretty beat after inserting this but I rested for a bit and then repeated the above steps with the last chakrah.
The last one - the ajna, was very similar yet not, after following up until reinserting it the size was about a little larger than a golfball, the energy around it was really warm, the color is indigo and it looked a lot like this:
And when your hands moves closer to the fore head if you’ve done it right you can almost like a small electrical charge coming near your forehead along with a nice warmth, as the sphere ouch your skin, you should feel some kind of energetic wamrth ontop your skin and a resistance as insert it. That’s what I did at least.
After completing the first half I was pretty beat so I needed a longer rest once refreshed I returned withe the intent of completing the exercise, I took a seat on the floor on my heels. Then I created the sphere, found the event horizon of the energy inbetween my hands and channeled the element (fire) into me and then into the space between my hands, if you are attentive enough you will notice that as the energy inbetween your hands demand space you will eventually be met with a resistance at the back of your hands indictaing that the sphere is there, as the energy increases in your hands it will be really hard to contain your hands and arms might even shake a bit as the force inbetween starts to become tricky to hold. It kind of looked like this internally except that the flames where a whole lot larger:
I felt a nice warmth inbetween my hands as I channaled the element into my hands. Here is where I did my first only misstake with this exercise I’ll ever do, never do this as it caused severe discomfort, I channeled the energy back into the arms somewhat gently into my chest area and let my head fall back and released thge energy. I should’ve just dissapated the energy through your mouth once it reaches critical mass, when you can barely hold it.
That concludes this exercise, I might have to redo it tomorrow, I hope not the whole process was pretty exhausting.
All the best
