Heart & Chong Mai Channels
✨The Heart and Chong Mai ✨
This module we explore the closing of our beautiful class series in Level 1. The final gateway of this work explores the element of fire, the organ of the heart, and the connection between the cervix, womb, and the heart. The Chong Mai is - in the womb (in utero) - seen to be one of the first cell divides; our first experiences of division. It is the deepest channel in the body.
It is thus that the final class is conceived and given, that we have cleansed, opened, detoxed, and completely aligned all of our organs to receive purity, joy, kindness, beauty and ultimately a joyous and orgasmic, deep and heartfelt receiving by the final end of this course, through the cervix, and into the heart. The cervix is a magnetic entity and is actually connected strongly to the innervation of the lower body through three major nerves. The outer layer of the cervix is also innervated - and this strong innervation means that the cervix has a powerful electro-magnetic field, which we use during this class to transmute all of the energies of the lower body and to re-instate as our protectress to the inner gateway/doorway of our deepest self. We allow our cervix to be inhabited and to transmute energies and breath and ground us down, re-instating our sense of protection, control and sovereignty that our golden gateway to our self is spiritual capable of allowing only the energies for our highest good inside. This is the finalisation of our initiation of the Level 1, and the invitation to come back home to yourself and your trust in this journey and your own inner world once again - or deeper yet. I look forward to sharing this amazing closing of our spiritual growth and with all of you.
✨The Heart Houses The Shen & The Mind ✨
”Taoism believes that the heart is a “mind”, the seat of the conscious mind. the heart refines the spirit and then manifests in radiance of the spirit. The heart is known as radiant and shining heart. The nature of the heart governs and exerts authority on all other organs” - Mantak Chia
In Chinese medicine, the Heart is seen to house the Shen, which is considered our consciousness - our human state. In many traditions worldwide, the Heart is seen to be the house of the Self, and true consciousness, and as Medical Science is now finding “the heart's complex intrinsic nervous system, the heart brain, is an intricate network of several types of neurons, neurotransmitters, proteins and support cells, like those found in the brain proper.” (HeartMath). In Chinese characters, the character for heart actually is the same character they use for “mind” - and represents the heart as an empty vessel - to be filled with the intelligent and Divine light and spark of your innate uniqueness. This quality of energy exists in all of us from our conception until our death - the Heart even has a divergent meridian to the eyes, to show the “light” of the Shen in the eyes. This Shen - this quality of Divine fire and spark - this is the potential we all have, the energy we can refine and grow through our conscious engagement with purifying practices, until the Shen is refined and awakening or enlightenment is born in the golden sea of our heart-womb.
✨ The Chong Mai ✨
The Chong Mai is ruled by the Pericardium and the Spleen; the pericardium is used as a medium to engage with the Heart, because in Chinese medicine and Taoism we see that the heart is always protected; indeed even in Western medicine the Heart is immune to many things, including cancer (very rare - the cancer usually having travelled to heart versus starting there. This is also because the heart cells do not divide - the cells you have in your heart are the cells you keep - so strongly is it a representation of the unique quality of the True Self, and our existence and journey on this Earth, in this life. Thus, there is no direct access to the Heart itself, except through the pericardium. The pericardium protects the Heart, and is yin-yang partners with the triple burner - the part of the body which regulates the lower, mid, and upper parts of the body we explore through this course, called “Dan Tien” in Taoism. The triple burner regulates fluid and heat, as well as emotional and fascial release through the body. It represents the principle of intelligent connective tissue - and by extension the pericardium plays a very similar role in regulating for the Heart - protecting it from shock, overly intense emotion, heat, etc. This pairing of the pericardium and the Heart is a similar role the womb as a structure plays in terms of protecting our inner sanctums and conception. The Chong Mai also connects opening of the cervix to the opening of the spiritual heart, as well as facilitates the flow of blood between the pericardium, heart and womb. The Chong Mai is where we grow our spiritual energy, receive our spiritual energy, and store, house, and build our sense of self love and self trust (or intimacy). The strength of this connection of defines our capacity for self love and receiving of the full spiritual self, and thus awakening.
