Lesson 129 - Nauli Raising kundalini with your abdominal muscles
Date: Sun Feb 29, 2004 4:53pm
New Visitors: It is recommended you read from the beginning of the web archive, as previous
lessons are prerequisite to this one. The first lesson is, "Why
"...With uddiyana we use the abdomen in a fairly static way, not doing anything dynamic with
the abdominal muscles. We just pull the abdomen in by lifting the diaphragm up. We can
make uddiyana dynamic by going up and down with the diaphragm. We'd like to jazz things up
even more, and put more stimulation on the kundalini energy in our pelvic region. By doing
so, we will also be setting the stage for an integrated network of whole-body
micro-movements that occur as ecstatic conductivity rises and matures in our nervous
system. Part of this integration will be an automatic linkup between the movements in the
abdomen and the movements in the pelvic region, eventually giving us ecstatic
micro-movements from the root all the way up into the chest.
Of course, none of this starts out as "micro-movements." We have to begin with
"macro-movements," which is what the mudras and bandhas are when we first learn
them. If we are learning to play the violin, we have to master the long simple monotone
strokes before we can indulge in the short complex multi-tone ones. Like that, the mudras
and bandhas usually begin as pronounced and visible, and then naturally refine over time
to be subtle invisible automatic manipulations deep within our increasingly ecstatic
nervous system. Then, it is the movement of ecstatic kundalini energy in our nervous
system that performs the micro-movements all over our body, and we become a witness to an
unending glorious display of luminous neuro-biology going on inside us.
The dynamic technique that takes us beyond uddiyana is called "nauli,"
which means, "to churn," or "to twirl." ..."
