Lesson 55 - Mulabandha – Enlivening sexual energy upward

From: Yogani
Date: Tue Dec 23, 2003 1:36pm

New Visitors: It is recommended you read from the beginning of the archive, as previous lessons are prerequisite to this one. The first lesson is, "Why This Discussion?"

Now we are ready to add some new elements of practice to our pranayama session. That is, in the writing and reading we are. In terms of your actual practice, it will depend very much on your time line. To review, you may want to go back and reread the lesson called, "What is your time line?"

Everyone is different, and you should only take on new practices according to your capacity. This means you should be stable and comfortable in your current pranayama and meditation routine before you undertaken new techniques. If you are borderline and go for it, you will find out soon enough if you are taking on too much. That's okay. If you find that you are taking on too much too soon, just go back to a comfortable level of practice and try again later. Design a more gradual approach for yourself. No harm done. The American president, Teddy Roosevelt, said, "A man's reach must exceed his grasp." That obviously goes for women too. That is how we progress. But don't lose your hand in the process. Use your common sense, and only take on what you can digest in a reasonable period of time. The knowledge will be there when you are ready for it.

It should be emphasized that the practices we will be discussing are not recommended without daily practice of both pranayama and meditation. If you try them without pranayama and meditation, you won't get much out of them. And you could end up going in the wrong direction, to boot.

So, with that, we will look at a practice called, "mulabandha." The translation for that is, "root lock." The words are much stronger than the actual practice. Everything we do here is gentle. Gentle persuasion, you could say. We want to gently coax our nervous system to a higher level of functioning...

The guru is in you.
