Sleeping with Tigers

In Taoist natural medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine many internal organs are associated with natural elements such as color, sound, emotion, weather element, planet, season, taste and a Protection Animal.

In modern times, we see at the very least that all of these associations help those who meditate bring their conscious awareness to a specific area of the body in a positive way for an extended period.  The longer we smile and dwell on an area, the longer we have to facilitate positive change.

Doubt it?  I did.  Until I tried this experiment:

  1. When ready for bed, lay comfortably and close your eyes.  
  2. Smile.  In your mind, focus that smile to your White Lungs.  
  3. Breathe in the white color of Courage and Righteousness.  Fill your lungs with this idea of being courageous enough to follow through on dreams and righteous enough to stand by your convictions. 
  4. Breathe out the dark color of Sadness and Depression (keep smiling).
  5. Do this three to six times, then rest.
  6. During the resting phase, smile to the White Tiger (the Protection Animal) and see a shiny silver sword near him (The element associated with the lungs is Metal).
  7. Keep smiling until you fall asleep.  

This short meditation was strong enough to induce an amazing dream about sleeping with a tiger.  Later, I napped with a young friend, pictured above, and had the sensation I had “been here before”.

What will happen when YOU try it?  Feel free to let me know.

Yoga and Medical Chi Kung Meditation

Medical Chi Kung YogaOften when we begin our Yoga education, we focus on the physical form.  We practice proper structure and work to memorize the sequence of postures.

As we mature in our practice, we learn to focus on the more subtle aspects of Yoga.  We focus on the connection between the mind and the body.  We learn that through mindfulness, the body becomes stronger, supple, and energetically open.  We need less physical effort to attain our Yoga goals when we connect the brain with our actions.

The same can be said for other aspects of physical health.  When we connect our mind in a positive, conscious way to our internal organs.  When we harbor positive feelings about our body, it responds in kind.


In this same way, when we connect our mind to our organs in a negative way, we may cause damage to the cells over time.  Anyone who has suffered a broken heart, or excess stress at home or work has felt the negative results of unhappy thoughts.

Try this experiment after your next Yoga class:

Choose three or four friends in class to share this experiment.

When rest time comes, lie down and smile to your body for at least 1 minute.

Then, make a sad or angry face and focus that feeling on your body for at least 30 seconds.

Next, relax your body, and ask yourself if there is a different sensation from smile to frown.

When finished, relax your body even deeper, free your mind, and let your Yoga practice work it’s magic.

When class is finished, talk to your classmates and share your experience.

Yoga and Tai Chi are moving meditations.
