If so,how? Hi Andrew. Yes, I think it gives some mild benefits to people around. Thank you for posting this Sibaak. For instance, when we are doing adjustments in stance training, I can feel my dantian better when I settle into my stance properly as opposed to leaning too far forward or too far back. Now I know that it takes time. No, it is not mumbo jumbo! The same is true of bi hue sp? I feel it opening spontaneously at odd moments, including the middle of the night, waking me up.
Incidentally one evening in class I tried to locate the energy centers in in the room with my eyes closed. When I opened them they correlated with yourself and students that had been to Costa Rica! My mind just becomes kind of present within that general area, and then there it is. I feel it pulsate as well, almost like dan tian is breathing in unison with my heartbeat.
Sifu Anthony, This is another instance in which I had been thinking off and on -Hmm what is dantian? I had also been wondering why do I yawn so very often when I am in one of your classes but not so much when I am practicing at home and your article answered this I think —your energy field? Your articles are full of energy! They are very helpful, enlightening! Just kidding! My first experience with chi at the dantien was a shock. I admit that when I started tai chi practise ten years ago it was for the martial arts aspect, not health or developing chi.
Without breing told what I expect I spontaneously started to feel pushing and pulling sensations. As my hands were rising away from the dantien they accelerated away from the body as if pushed by magnets. When I brought them back down I.
Where in the World is Dantian?
Then he reassured me that it was just my hands interacting with the chi at the dantien. I hope that means my dantien is bigger, not smaller! Sorry I missed this comment, Geoff. In my experience, dantian actually becomes smaller, or rather more condensed, over time. The Qi gradually consolidates and compresses until it becomes exactly what the classics describe — a golden pearl of energy. Of course, the energy radiates out from the pearl, but the core, the center of that energy is roughly the size of a very large pearl. I really appreciate your article. Hi Ridwan. It depends on the student.
Some students feel dantian in a matter of weeks, but for other students, it takes years. Just keep practicing! So thanks again for taking a non-secular approach to energy utilization, as i believe this is key to enlightening the majority. That said, I have a few questions you may like to weigh in on: 1.
Dan-Tien: Your Secret Energy Center | baledynuxady.tk
I have been visualizing the energy meridians with my sense of awareness for many years, on and off that is to say, without strict regimen or conservative teaching methods.. I feel abundance in my extremities and an increasingly powerful collection in my lowest energy center at the sacrum a past problem for me which i learned to improve through pelvic breathing, dropping the perineum on inhale.
The dantian is sometimes felt, and also the heart and mind vortices can be felt with deep meditation, but i cannot maintain their density of presence in the active state of my daily life. I feel this is a source of negativity for me, as i associate abdominal function with vitality after having surgical work done below my waist line, causing much psycho-somatic inhibition during the breathing process.
So my question is how to connect the circuit from my pelvis up through my abdomen and heart into my cervical area and of course the head? This is crucial, i believe, because i sometimes aim to cultivate energy to increase physical endurance during sport and ultimately feel a pain below my ribcage, as if the flow is halted at my diaphragm, not allowed to progress. So more specifically, are there exercises you could prescribe to open my heart and throat to release this abdominal pressure? Could it be solved through the intention of breath?
Is there a specific way to visualize the energy above the dantian? Ultimately, i feel my energy conductivity rise exponentially, as if something is pulling at my energy centers, attacking my sense of spiritual strength. Thanks again for taking time to practice the way of cultivation and to share your expertise with us ambitious learners, and im sorry for the length of this text!
Please feel free to answer whichever questions you feel most pertinent for your level of knowledge, and which to omit at your full discretion. Thank you for any guidance you can supply, and my best wishes go to the progression of your endeavors and those of your students. In fact, atheists would be perfectly comfortable in those classes.
I can answer all three questions in one go — you need to learn from me in person, or as a poor substitute, from my upcoming book.
I am glad you posted this article, because I have been having a problem feeling my Dantian not long after starting practice with Shaolin Wahnam. I mentioned during one class before I left Florida that I could no longer feel my Dantian at all, I used too though, I felt it when I was still on the reading and practicing from Dr. Both Posture and Sitting Meditation for Qi circulation was what I was practicing long before I met you Sifu Anthony, so about a year into going into classes and practcing I could no longer feel the spot I used to concentrate so much on for Qi storage.
I am not tryng to point any fingers or blame, but I do want to find out why I can no longer feel these points any more. This has been an on going problem almost from the start. Looking back, I think I am still confused on the breathing that is first taught. Is this correct? I have been using belly breathing from the start, that may be a catalyst for the problem but again I am not sure. Hi David. Just enjoy your breathing. Feeling dantian is difficult for many people.
A new level. I never thought about it like that. Yes it could be. That it is a part of a transition to another level.

In that case I will just ease my worries and just continue to practice. Thanks :. Hello Sifu. I have been experiencing this since i was about 13 in taekwondo class. I have been able to manipulate a vibration feeling in my abdomen. One time i was focusing so hard that the two light bulbs in my two lamps burnt out simultaneously right when i felt like was expending the most energy. My friends laugh at me when i tell them this but i really felt like it was my own energy field that did that, and this was before i have ever heard of this concept.
This article has solidified my theorys on how we all have an energy force that we have forgotten as a species and this kind of thing can do wonders for the world. Regarding your natural experiences of energy, I strongly recommend that you learn to cultivate and control your energy. Find a good teacher, or come learn from me if you can. Before reading on please be aware everyone has my upmost respect and I kneel before you as your humble servant! And I do not wish to take anything away from anyone that they feel is beneficial to there development, but spiritual practice will only take you so far in the end that must be abandoned as well as it is not the truth, it only points to that what is!
Is it not that everything is there to begin with? There is nothing to cultivate, it is already there! You must feel not think I feel! Visualization techniques whilst meditating, controlling and manipulating the flow of energy around the body are only scratching the surface. How can you truly feel whilst your mind is distracted by some other activity, watching the breath, visualizing energy centers, manipulating the flow of chi round the body.
I do not perceive how you can be at one whilst you are pursuing these activities. Now let me pass on what another has taught, look for it but it can not be seen, it is formless, grasp at it and you can not, it is intangible, listen to it and it can not be heard its name is silence, it is styled the imageless image or the formless form, the intense heat from the hottest star does not burn it, the deep cold of interstellar space does not chill it. Infinite gravity will not crush it nor infinite expansion tear it apart its is indestructible, better look for it within you!
Feel the force! I have followed my 3rd eye tube into my abdomen and had my whole sor-self infront of dantien — seeing it as a big glowing disk with black vapour issuing from it. Do you know what the black vapour is the black may just have been the fact it was backlit and it was fairly dark in there? It is amazing, and this article was written in such a way that that lends a perspective of real experience with it and some of its functional understandings.
Unfortunately, even with correct posture and position typing at the keyboard, I have energetic movement beginning away from the dantian and the sensation is leaving me! Great article sir.
Dan-Tien: Your Secret Energy Center
Dear Sifu, I would like to ask about Qigong during pregnancy. I am practising visualization of dantian as a gold pearl lower dantien. When I was pregnant I was not sure if I can practise this meditation or not. I know, that I should not accumulate energy in there with qigong columns and trees foccused on the lower dantien… I really love this meditation, it calms me down and I am also more resistant towards stress and my mind is clear and more focused.
I can feel dantien only when I am focused on it. I have recently added Restorative Yoga to my weekly activities. As fast as it happened it was gone! Will appreciate if you can clarify whether the dan tien is behind or below the navel. On the contrary to the commentator not supplying references I rely on solid references — a real spiritual qigong neidan healing master that I trained with, and then four other teaching references. One might say that the real lower tan tien is a kind of reverse entropy spiritual center — a quantum relativized storage of information-energy — the Yuan Qi.
The conception vessel is mainly the front vagus nerve — which runs both up afferent and down efferent the body. That is a more superficial or external level of training — as I mentioned Chapter 4 of building up the yin qi energy, from Taoist yoga: alchemy and Immortality. This is guided by the spiritual light or Yuan Shen as an Emptiness immortal breathing experience — aka nirvikalpa samadhi. After that a deeper serenity is required through fasting to further build up the Yuan Qi and Yuan Shen energy.
As deeper yin jing energy is transformed into Yuan Qi then the light of the shen turns gold to create the Yang Shen. What you pasted seems to be out of context, and thus a bit confusing and convoluted, especially for beginners. Markert says that listening to your Dan-Tien can bring you "millions of happy minutes" in all that you do and in all of your relationships. With the author's examples and visualizations, you can learn to let your Dan-Tien bring you self confidence, love, and happiness.
The mysteries of the Far East have fascinated me ever since I was a student forty years ago. I felt that here I would discover the secrets that are missing in our Western culture. China has the world's oldest living culture, reaching back over five thousand years. After rejecting its ancient heritage in recent decades, China is now rediscovering its past. Just as the Chinese are now learning technological skills from us, so we can benefit from the profound wisdom of the Chinese sages.
Over the years I have written two books about this subject that were well-received and widely published. The publishers seem to feel that I have a good grasp of the Far-Eastern mentality. In my present book I describe a more practical aspect of Chinese culture. Western readers will find the concept of Dan-Tien not only enlightening but also very useful in daily life. For me and many others it has been a revelation that changed our lives. The secret of good health, happiness, and success lies in the Dan-Tien, according to ancient Chinese texts.
Dan-Tien is the source of vitality and joy. We all possess this source, but we are seldom aware of it.

We all have an inner compass that leads us to the good life and keeps us in tune with the cosmos. When we listen to its subtle signals we can look forward to a life that is rich and rewarding and blessed with loving relationships. This compass is so simple and foolproof that we tend to ignore it. Most of us have even been taught to ignore it and to rely instead on complex theories, artificial rules, or belief systems.
The concept of Dan-Tien reminds us that all great truths are simple and easily practiced in daily life.

East Asians have known for thousands of years that the core of our vitality and unconscious wisdom lies in our very center. In this area we can spontaneously sense whether we are in tune with life at any given moment. When we think or do something that does not agree with our deepest feelings, we immediately get an unpleasant sensation in our center, in the Dan-Tien. This is a signal that tells us that the way we think or act at this time is not quite right.
If we fail to listen to the signal, it will become stronger, to the point where we get a knot in the stomach. If we habitually ignore the message, we may end up with a stomach ulcer or other psychosomatic complications. But if we think and act in tune with the Dan-Tien, we notice a pleasant sensation in the belly area.
We feel happy and enjoy inner harmony. In time we can learn to cultivate this state, so that it becomes a pleasant habit. Mind and body can thus function optimally and avoid needless stress. There is a deeper reason why Dan-Tien makes us happy and successful: it connects us with the cosmic life force. When we listen to the signals in our center and act accordingly, we harmonize with the primal force that is called divine. We can find true happiness only when we live in tune with our divine self. Dan-Tien offers no philosophical systems, moral precepts, psychological analyses, or intellectual explanations.
Instead we receive helpful impulses from moment to moment. Just like a child searching for Easter eggs is guided by calls of warm or cold, so we can rely on the hints from our center in our search for happiness and success. Through Dan-Tien we appreciate and enjoy the here and now.
When we can be happy here and now, when we can enjoy the next minute and the next minute, too, and so on, then we can enjoy the whole day. When we do this all week and through the months, we enjoy millions of happy minutes over the years. It is that simple. Of course there will be minutes when we notice that something is wrong. Then we feel unhappy until we remember our inner compass and follow its messages.
Usually it turns out that we got lost in useless and aimless trains of thought, or perhaps we were doing something that did not fulfill the need of the moment. Instead of living here and now we worried about the past or the future. Instead of sweeping in front of our own door we got involved in other people's problems. But as soon as we realize that we are on the wrong track, we can change course and restore the good feeling, usually in a matter of seconds or minutes.
Our greatest source of happiness is the feeling of being on the right track, here and now. We also feel good when we reach a goal, of course, but we do not reach goals every day. Listening to the Dan-Tien provides countless happy moments in our relationships and in everything how much we do Thanks to the examples and practices proposed by the author, it is easy to learn to develop the Dan-Tien and allow it to fill our lives with self-confidence, love and happiness. In Chinese, Dan-Tien means "belly area".
It is the name that the Japanese call hara and that is our center of bliss, vitality and power. The Dan-Tien is located just below the navel and a couple of centimeters inside the body. For more than four or five thousand years, the Taoist masters have explained in great detail how to be in contact with this center and how to use it as a link with the Chi, which is the name by which universal or cosmic energy is designated. He later emigrated to the United States, where he combined his work with the study of oriental disciplines. He is the author of several books on oriental wisdom.
