• Do an honest self-assessment. What are your strengths and weaknesses?

• Witness how you react to stress. Do you become anxious, upset and irritable? Do you withdraw, or do you take a breath and transmute?

Take responsibility for your emotions, actions, and your words. Are you able to apologize?

• Walk a mile in the others’ shoes. Intuit how your behaviors and actions will impinge on others before you act.

It is not our intent here to try to objectively quantify your emotional state for purposes of “grading” your development. Rather, it is more desirable to do a self assessment of your current level of discernment of these qualities and observe how they may change over time as you grow. © 2012 Keith E.

Emotional-Spiritual Intelligence

Emotional-Spiritual Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence (EI) assessments are now a common pre-employment test often required by corporations. In its current popular form, emotional intelligence tests and processes are used to a large extent in determining who will be successful in business, in certain job descriptions, and other external situations.

As defined by the business community, Emotional Intelligence (EI, EQ) is the ability to identify, assess, and control one’s emotions, and those of others.  This is quite a third chakra agenda.  A less yang definition I have developed would be “An adroit facility in identifying and understanding one’s emotions and the ability to regulate emotions to promote personal growth. The ability to transmute negativity while integrating emotion, thought, and action in a positive manner for the benefit of one’s spiritual development and, in certain cases, that of others.”  I call this ability “Emotional-Spiritual Intelligence®.”

Business models of Emotional Intelligence are interested in controlling others for the benefit of the corporation, not for spiritual development. So, this can be a case of the more conscious and controlled individuals using their “siddhis” to manipulate others, perhaps without their consent. Intention ultimately shapes and directs this kind of mental / emotional prowess. Is your Intention directed inwardly for your own development, or is it directed outwardly for the purpose of controlling others?  If you are highly interested in manipulating others, I suggest that perhaps you have a considerable amount of personal growth work to continue to do.

Rather than enrolling the powers of Emotional Intelligence in the agendas of the lower chakras, it would behoove the individual interested in spiritual growth to transmute their negative emotions, issues, and desires of the first three chakras while activating and balancing the higher chakras, just as we do in Chakra Qigong.  First we awaken the third eye to activate Witness, and then we bring Cosmic Consciousness and Qi into the lower chakras. Once this is accomplished, we use Earthly Qi to further connect the heart chakra with the lower chakras, and the throat, third eye, and crown with the heart. With these chakras more balanced and connected, the Earthly Qi will further stimulate and awaken the entire column of chakras.

Another key in developing Emotional Intelligence is to consciously stay focused in the present. When you are able to let go of old pain, anxiety, and resentment, you can recognize the reality of the current situation as being independent of personal history.  Thus, every new potentially triggering situation becomes an opportunity for resolving stuck feelings, conflicts, and karmic patterns. © 2012 Keith E.

Karma Burning Chakra Issues Fifth Chakra

Karma Burning: Frustration

 

Expression is related to communication. Communication, depending on one’s intention, can lead to understanStress management, frustration, enlightenment, tantric qigong, self-mastery, joy, communication, vishuddi, fifth chakra, throat chakrading and cooperation, or to contradiction and conflict.

In a sense, creative expression has its roots in the third chakra. It begins as the desire to create something (physical, mental, or emotional), gathers the power of manifestation, and then travels to the fifth chakra for expression.

If thwarted, our desire, intention, and joy of creating turns to frustration. The greater the obstruction (whether external or internal), and the stronger the individual’s will, the more likely one is to experience frustration. 

Frustration always includes some combination of the emotions of the lower chakras which can be summarized thusly:

Desire to create / express > internal or external blocking > inhibition (disappointment / fear) > anger
anger expressed outwardly > conflict
anger expressed inwardly > self judgment / physical ramifications

Bioenergetically, we keep the “lid on” the unbridled outward expression of frustration by tightening the neck and jaw muscles. If chronic, this response becomes muscular armoring and can lead to physical symptoms such as TMJ syndrome, neck pain, cervical vertebral misalignment, poor posture, and headaches.

 The Evolution of Language

It is most likely that during the Lower Pleistocene Homo habilis and Homo erectus had some form of communication that was an intermediate stage between that of modern humans and that of non-human primates. It is conjectured that these forms were simple nouns and verbs that lacked conjugation or tenses. More sophisticated forms of utterance may have evolved in Neanderthals, though they may have lacked the brain capacity for the modern speech of Homo Sapiens, who may have developed language and art between 50,000 and 200,000 years ago. It is the development of language that helped larger groups of humans to learn to cooperate and work together, migrate to distant areas, and improve their survival skills.

Writing is a form of expression that allows for the communication of ideas over greater time and space than language alone. Cuneiform, the Sumerian system of writing, evolved from a system of clay tokens used to represent goods. By the 4th millennium BC, this evolved into a more standardized method for accounting.  The Sumerian cuneiform and the Egyptian hieroglyphs are historically considered to be the earliest true writing systems. Both systems emerged from proto-literate symbol systems circa

3400–3200 BC, with the earliest coherent texts about 2600 BC.  Thus writing, as we normally conceive of it, is probably only about 5000 years old. (c) 2012 Keith E. Hall and www.Inner-tranquility.com  All rights reserved.

Karma Burning Chakra Issues Fourth Chakra

Karma Burning: Interpersonal Relations

The issue of the fourth chakra, Anahata, is interpersonal relations. When this chakra is in balance and supported by healthy consciousness springing from the clarity of the first three 4th chakra, anahata, karma, agape, unconditional love,  tantric qigong, inner peacechakras, we get an open, powerful heart energy. Once this occurs, relations will tend to have the qualities of unconditional love, gratitude, and compassion.

We can all agree that this is an ideal worth working towards. Culturally though, we are not quite there yet. The quality of the fourth chakra’s expression can be, and is, heavily influenced by the lower three.

Relations that have the third chakra as their foundation will be colored by personal power, seeking either control / submission, or cooperation.  If the first two chakras are not clear and balanced, relations will take on aspects of anxiety, vulnerability, self-centered pleasure seeking / pain avoidance.

It may be that love is a relatively recent human development.  Early hominids were concerned with survival and dominance, and their approach to this was fairly self-centered.  Living in survival mode without tools and language, these hominids were probably closer to animals than what we would identify as human.

Homo erectus (circa 1,800,000 BCE – 300,000 AD)  was probably the first hominid to live in a hunter-gatherer society, develop a proto-language, shape more sophisticated stone tools, routinely use fire, and invent the concept of human cooperation. Homo Erectus developed a much larger brain than his predecessors, which aided in the aforementioned inventions. This larger brain and cranium presented new difficulties with childbirth, resulting in the need to birth earlier, and the infants birthed were, in a sense, “premature”. They needed to be smaller just to pass through the birth canal. The resulting infants required much longer to mature to semi-self sufficiency, needing extended nurturing and protection in their longer state of helplessness. Somewhere between Homo Erectus and Homo Sapiens, this developed into love and altruism.

Homo Erectus was probably the first hominid to live in small band-societies, the simplest form of human society. A band generally consists of an extended family or clan having no more than 30 to 50 individuals.  A group such as this would have enhanced abilities to defend themselves and hunt in a coordinated group. The earliest evidence of hearths is also associated with Homo erectus. Evidence seems to indicate that these hearths were used for cooking,  warmth, defense against predators, and are likely to have been places of social interaction, making Homo Erectus socially more like modern humans than their predecessors.

We are on our way, in time, to evolve into a heart-based and compassionate culture. This is not to say that there are no atavistic throwbacks to our early hominid ancestors. Take a look at corporate greed and national politics to see just two examples. As we continue to evolve, Homo Superior or Homo Spiritualis will have the needs of the first three chakras met in a balanced and reasonable way, and will act from the foundation of the heart.

Chakra Issues: 3rd Chakra

Chakra Issues: Third Chakra

Personal Power

Manipura, the third chakra, is a potent reservoir of qi (chi) in the body. Earthly qi can enter the body through the feet, can be activated or “pumped up” at the Muladhara chakra, and when combined with atmospheric qi, creates life force which can be stored in Manipura. This vital force can be quite dynamic and, like a ChakraBanner3battery, can be in motion or exist in either a potential or quiescent state. Besides the absorption of earthly qi through the feet (or perineum / coccyx if sitting), we can acquire earthly qi through the digestion and assimilation of food. Once assimilated and combined with the heavenly qi we absorb through the breath, this energy becomes our personal qi or life force. 

Tantric Qigong: A Course in Self Mastery

Vitality is required to keep the body, mind, and emotions healthy and in good working order. Once these basic needs are satisfied, any surfeit of vitality becomes personal power. In many with Western mindsets, active vitality has a strong tendency to be applied externally, and if one’s personal power is thwarted in some way, this energy can internalized, often in an unhealthy way.  If the first chakra mediates the flight part of the fight or flight response, the third chakra is in charge of the fight part. The primitive part of ourselves feels that the best defense is a strong offense.

 There is no guarantee that one will use one’s life force appropriately in a karma-free sense. Here are some examples of karma inducing uses of personal power:

Externally: one can use one’s personal power to manipulate or dominate other people or the environment. Anger is a subset of this: it appears as the “cure” for our power being thwarted.      Hatred, violence, are other examples.

Internally;  the energy of attack (anger) can be turned against one’s mind and physiology -self hatred, allergies, auto immune conditions, visceral organ malfunction and degradation.

Examples of the appropriate use of personal power:

External: manifesting your desires without karmically infringing upon another, selfless service.

Internal: Self mastery, commitment to a course of personal development, development of spiritual willpower, surrendering to your higher self.

When we have attained the highest level of personal power, and have manifested all our worldly desires, we may begin to yearn for something beyond power and the material. This is spiritual yearning (see: The 3rd Chakra and the Spiritual Purpose of Power ). © 2012 Keith E. Hall and www.Inner-Tranquility.com. All rights reserved.

Karma Burning: Chakra Issues part 2

Tantric Qigong Karma Burning: Chakra Issues,  Breath, Emotional Intelligence and Evolution

Transform yourself with Tantric Qigong for Self Mastery

Referring to the tendency of modern technology to be shaped by Paleolithic emotional patterns, Einstein was alleged to have said “It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity…All our lauded technological progress–our very civilization–is like the axe in the hand of the pathological criminal…The human spirit must prevail over technology.”  How can we achieve this process of accelerated evolution implied by Einstein?  Try this breathing technique when you feel emotionally challenged: Keep your back straight, inhale slowly and deeply to a count of 5, exhale slowly to a count of 5. Repeat 1-3 times or until calm. If you know the Third Eye Balancing technique, you can also use it to balance your mental / emotional state.

Do this interpersonal experiment: the next time you are confronted by someone who is experiencing great anxiety, anger, or pain, ask them to take a deep breath. The person controlled by the atavistic urges of the amygdala will blast you for suggesting this. The more evolved will endeavor to comply.  

The intention to mediate our bestial aspects is associated with the higher cortical centers which can override the amygdala / brain-stem reactions. I have yet to see a convincing medical Tantric qigong, conscious breathing, spirtual evolutionexplanation for how this intention is generated; this may remain one of the ancient mysteries of spiritual masters. Certainly once put in motion, Intention from our higher centers can subsume and mediate automatic neuro-muscular and endocrine reactions. By asserting control through our higher cortical centers we unite the yin and yang portals of the psychic bridge (third eye) and neutralize the more barbaric urges of the brain stem.

In short, the amygdala represents our primitive aspects and the anterior cingulate cortex and the lateral orbitofrontal cortex develop our higher civilized and spiritual aspects. You can see by the diagram that the anterior cingulate cortex / lateral orbitofrontal cortex is in a direct line between the amygdala / brainstem and the neocortical centers controlled by the third eye (Ajna). It is one of the functions of Cobra Breath to unite and balance these centers, bringing vital, primal energy to the higher centers while soothing and calming the atavistic beast within us. © 2012 Keith E.

Karma Burning: Chakra Issues

Monday, April 22nd, 2013

Tantric Qigong Karma Burning: Chakra Issues Recurrent emotional and behavioral patterns / habits that are energized and repeatedly re-grooved in our consciousness become Issues.

Transform yourself with Tantric Qigong

Repeated emotional / behavioral patterns that have consistent negative consequences seem to be driven by brain stem and amygdala reactions that are inconsistent with emotional intelligence, or are inappropriate for the stimuli present at the time. We can seem stuck in these patterns like an old vinyl record skipping and repeating the same music over and over. These recurrent emotional / behavioral patterns inform the issues of the lower chakras.brain-evolution-crop-inner-tranq

The human brain is exactly the same as humans living 200,000 years ago. Think about it, we are meeting new, challenging stimuli of the modern world with the same neural circuitry as nomadic cavemen during the Paleolithic Stone Age. We still treat every new stimulus as a potential danger to be defended against. We are using the same old knee jerk fight-or-flight responses of our ancient ancestors 194,000 years before recorded history began. This explains the reactions of patriarchal cultures of terrorism that are both entrenched in Neolithic tribalism and have access to nuclear and electronic technology – kill it or be killed by it, eat it or be eaten, dominate or die.

The Amygdala, Limbic Resonance and Patterns

The limbic system and the brain stem (reptilian brain) are at the center of these quasi-automatic attitudes and responses. In addition to internal automatic brain stem reactions to a threatening stimulus, we tend to come into attunement with other nearby mammals possessing limbic resonance. If you are in close proximity to a person who is angry, you pick up on this. If you have an adoring cat or dog on your lap, you tend to resonate with their emotion.

The amygdala activates fight or flight responses by receiving neural signals that indicate possible threats slightly before other brain centers. Higher cortical areas receive these signals milliseconds later, making it a challenge to override one’s reactions if we judge that immediate action is required. The difficulty is that the older parts of the brain always react as if the stimulus is a true life and death situation requiring immediate action, although the vast majority of the time it is not.

The amygdala processes information unconsciously and has no sense of chronological time. This means that stimuli perceived as a threat in childhood will tend to be perceived the same way in adulthood. So, a memory of a barking dog that frightened you at an early age is recorded by the amygdala and will set off the same fear reactions with similar intensity if you are presented with the same stimulus in the present. This lack of personal historical chronology at the center of the limbic system may be a basis for the perpetuation of negative emotional / behavioral patterns.

Anterior Cingulate Cortex

The anterior cingulate cortex has a mediating role in rational cognitive functions, decision-making, empathy, and modulation of emotional responses through the abundance of specialized neanterior cingulate cortex Tantric Qigongurons called spindle cells. These cells are a relatively recent occurrence in evolutionary terms, so far found only in humans and apes. Whether we use these cell structures fully or not makes all the difference.

The relationship between the anterior cingulate cortex and more primitive brain structures can even explain one’s choice of politics. A now famous study conducted by the University College London (UCL) demonstrated a correlation between larger development of the anterior cingulate cortex and progressive political identification compared to a larger development of the amygdala in retrogressive political identification. “We found that greater liberalism was associated with increased gray matter volume in the anterior cingulate cortex, whereas greater conservatism was associated with increased volume of the right amygdala…political attitudes reflect differences in self-regulatory conflict monitoring and recognition of emotional faces by showing that such attitudes are reflected in human brain structure.“*  © 2012 Keith E.

Karma Burning: Transcendence & Sahasrara, the Crown Chakra

Learn Tantric Qigong

 He who loses himself will find himself.  Matthew 10:39

sahasrara, Inner-Tranquility, tantric qigong, self-mastery, crown chakraThe crown chakra is the connection between the physical body and its energetic emanations, energy bodies, etc. There is not really an emotion per se associated with this chakra, the closest we come is a sense of liberation or spiritual ecstasy resulting from a release from the confines of ego.  Transcendence can be defined as that which goes beyond any possible intellectual knowledge, a full spiritual awakening or liberation from egocentricity, a condition of going or being beyond ego. The mantra which describes this is:  “Gate Gate Paragate Parasamgate Bodhi Swaha!”, i.e. go, go, go beyond, go beyond beyond, all hail the goer! (Enlightened one).

In religious experience, transcendence is a state of being that has overcome the limitations of physical existence and perhaps become independent of it. This state of being in connection with the universal self can sometimes be experienced through processes which expand the boundaries of our definition and our consciousness, and can include prayer, meditation, entheogen induced extasis, tantric practices, and spontaneously experienced out of body states. All the great religious traditions of the world to some extent share the belief of the possibility of transcending the ego, even such a staid authority as the Catholic Church:

          Freeing itself from the sensuous world by purification (katharsis), the human soul

          ascends by successive steps through the various degrees of the metaphysical

          order, until it unites itself in…contemplation to the One, and sinks into it: it is

          the state of ecstasis.

-The Catholic Encyclopedia, Volume 10, Herbermann, Charles George 1907-1913yin-yang, inner-tranquility.com, t'ai chi. t'ai chi chuan, tantric qigong

Just as the t’ai chi symbol (yin yang) contains the seed of its opposites, so transcendence can contain an aspect of immanence.  We can be alive, but have consciousness outside the body; we can be in the world, but at the same time not of it. © 2012 Keith E.

Karma Burning: The 5th Chakra

Karma Burning: Joy & the Throat Chakra

Learn Tantric Qigong

Joy is the expression of the power of great delight, elation, or “happiness on steroids.” As a spiritual state of Being, joy can energetically manifest from either the 4th chakra or the 6th chakra.

Vishuddhi yantra throat chakraReal joy means immediate expansion. If we experience pure joy, immediately our heart expands. – Sri Chinmoy

If the power of love, happiness, gratitude, or ecstasy is energized enough, this Shakti Kundalini (earthly Qi) will express itself by travelling through the sub-chakras connecting heart (Anahata) to the throat (Vishuddi). This earthly, Shakti based energy of Joy wants to ascend through the chakras and rejoice in its dynamic and free expression at the throat. Another characteristic of Joy that begins in the heart can be the desire to serve others, which can create a deep satisfaction and gratitude for this opportunity to be in service to humanity.

Peace is joy at rest, and joy is peace on its feet. – Anne Lamott

It is only when the mind is free from the old that it meets everything anew, and in that there is joy. – Krishnamurti

Focusing on the 3rd eye creates attentiveness and Presence, which is a prerequisite and an intimately entwined component of joy. Witnessing the beauty and power of the Now can fill one with compassion, gratitude, and joy as well as a sort of esthetic awakening to and a deep appreciation of the reality we behold. This energetically (through one’s heavenly Qi) connects Ajna with the throat whereby these realizations can be expressed. Joy manifested from the 3rd eye to the throat can often have a serene, blissful quality to it. © 2012 Keith E. Hall and www.Inner-Tranquility.com. All rights reserved.

Karma Burning: Unconditional Love

Learn Tantric Qigong

Anahata yantra fourth chakra unconditional loveUnconditional love, as distinct from romantic, barter, or transactional love, can be defined as love without limitations. Some closely analogous synonyms are: altruism, divine love, or maternal love. It is that type of love which is unbounded and unchanging. As every English Lit major knows:

            Love is not love

            Which alters when it alteration finds,

            Or bends with the remover to remove:

            O no! it is an ever-fixed mark

            That looks on tempests and is never shaken…  Sonnet 116

Unconditional love has no prerequisites, and seeks no rewards. As Kahlil Gibran opines,

            Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.

            Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;

            For love is sufficient unto love.

The person broadcasting unconditional love could be seen as having the “goal” of increasing the welfare of the other without any expectation of benefit; love is given freely to the loved one without condition or bartering.

            Love seeketh not itself to please,

            Nor for itself hath any care,

            But for another gives its ease,

            And builds a Heaven in Hell’s despair. William Blake

Mario Beauregard, et al studied MRI brain imaging of participants who were shown different images either referring to unconditional love or “romantic love”. Four of seven distinct areas of the brain* became uniquely active during the unconditional love portions of the experiment. These areas are associated with “rewarding” and non-sexual pleasure sensations, and human maternal behaviors. These cerebral regions were not active during the romantic love part of the protocol, thus demonstrating neurologically that the feeling of love for someone without the need of being rewarded is distinctly different from the feeling of romantic love. © 2012 Keith E.
