4. Elixir Chi Kung
Elixir Chi Kung - The Golden Elixir
- Taoist Alchemy, the "Chymical Wedding" in Ancient China -
In the Taoisttradition, the elixir Chi Kungwas considered one of the last secrets that a master would pass on to his students before his passing.
Grand Master Mantak Chia makes this precious knowledge public without restrictions and has already been severely criticised for this.
In summary, body fluids are energised with chi through alchemical actions. One transforms one's own bodily fluids in a way that has not yet been researched in detail, but is extremely effective.
In Chinese medicine, bodily fluidsare regarded as a key indicator of vital health. If the fluids are functioning, this speaks for an intact production and a good supply of oxygen and nutrients to the organs, for vital sexual energy and for sufficient burning of nutrients. Overall, a good supply of fluids to the body provides information about a person's vitality.
The Westalso knows comparable traditions. The "Chymical Wedding'" as the title of one of the basic writings of the Rosicrucians and as an instrument of the researching adepts who had the hermetic keys of alchymy, Kabbalah and astrology. In alchemy, the Chymical Wedding is understood as the union of opposites and reveals the gradual path of initiation into the ultimate great mysteries of our existence.
In the alchemists'masterpiece, the production of a philosopher's stone with which gold is to be made and an immortality elixir obtained, one of the necessary acts is the coagulatio of matter, the coagulation of incompatible substances in a chymical marriage.
In the erotic symbolism of alchemy, this refers to the climax of the great work (opus magnum), when the white queen (symbol: moon, silver or mercury) unites with the red king (symbol: sun, sulphur or gold). The union of the polar opposites, however, is not only an external process, but also an allegory of the inner, spiritual process of change of a human being, since the purposeful change of the human being itself was one of the most important goals of alchemy.
The Taoistsrecognised saliva as one of the sources of life. Western scientists describe saliva as an extremely complex fluid containing a vast array of substances that have the potential to influence many aspects of our physical lives.
The GoldenElixir, also known as nectar, is the source or water of life. It is a mixture of saliva, hormonal fluids and external essences. From an alchemical point of view, however, it is far more than a mere external, material process; rather, through coagulation, spiritual is incorporated into matter, thereby elevating it to a higher level of existence. Taoists believe that this elixir is a great transformer for higher, spiritual work. The Golden Elixir is said to be able to cure illnesses and even grant immortality. Some Taoist texts recommend swallowing the saliva up to 1,000 times a day for spiritual work and healing. In the practice presented by Grand Master Mantak Chia, exercises that have only recently been made public have flowery names, such as "The Dragon Fixes the Pearl", "Spinning the Silk and Swinging the Leg" or "Harvesting the Golden Earth Medicine".
The practical applications of alchemical lore to one's own bodily fluids can be learned and practised. Grand Master Mantak Chia teaches these precious Taoist practices worldwide in workshops, also in Germany. Elixir Chi Kung is part of Cosmic Healing.
