Breathing with the Moon

The moon! This fierce, magnetic force that is the aspect of the feminine earth energies, standing opposite to the active male sun energy. Women have been connecting to the moon for years and now is the time for us to reclaim that connection and power. She is not just a white disc in the sky that the wolves howl at…she is a very alive, potent source of energy for cosmic healing, personal healing and overall planetary transformation.

In the Power of Shakti, Padma Aon Prakasha shares a bit about breathing with the Moon::

“Now that we have remembered more about the essence of the moon, we can begin to actively work with this spendid, gracious, and loving being that refreshes, delights, and clarifies us. We can do this by breathing the moon into the womb, and by sounding the names, sounds, and mantras of the moon, as women have done for thousands of years before us in the lineages of ancient mothers and grandmothers, throughout history. Every woman is connected to this lineage of birthing and the moon; it simply has to be remembered within you.

Breathing the moon into the womb happens through the kidneys. The kidneys are the feminine energy chi generators of the body. The energy they generate is sky-blue in nature and is pure clarity of essence. When they are stimulated they send feminine chi to all parts of the body, especially to those areas that need it. Kidney chi is refined, energizing, and healing, and with intent it can be used to energize the womb and connect it to the moon through the feminine Silver Ray of Light.

In this practice the kidneys become the conduit for the Silver Ray of the moon (the lunar path of the feminine), bringing lunar light into the body’s energy pathways and meridian circulatory system. The Silver Ray refines and purifies, clearing fogginess and lack of clarity, re-evoking the memories of water, chi, and the feminine, balancing the excess masculine back into harmony. It activates those areas of the body that need the feminine energy, that have become stagnant and disused.

If you feel disconnection to the true feminine, or feel tightness at the heart, this practice can assist you in harmonizing emotions, making you more patient, balanced, and perservering. If done regularly, kidney and womb connection leads to a more flowing, cooling, gentle and mothering energy within you, balancing excess mental attitudes and expressions. This practice can also be used to verify and energize you, as it was used by Egyptioan healers as a means of charging up the kidnesy so they could have more power to heal others.”

Ovary Breathing:: Harnessing the Healing Power of Feminine Energy

The ovaries are a powerful set of organs that most of us women do not know anything about other than that our eggs are made there. I believe that the incidents of cancer and ovarian problems would diminish significantly if we learned how to tune into the magic and power  that is inherent in these jewels of our female organ system. I found these great exercises in the book The Power of Shakti…I highly recommend connecting to these powerful sources of divine feminine energy …..

In THE POWER OF SHAKTI, by Padma Aon Prakashana, he writes:

” The rich wine-red ovaries are a storage center for vast amounts of sexual energy, and also a repository of sexual traumas and repression. As the ovaries heal, life force flows into the belly and womb, which can then be directed into other parts of the body mind via the eighteen pathways to renew, vitalize, empower, and enhance your innate femininity.

More than 40 percent of a woman’s daily energy goes into the production of her eggs. Thus a woman loses her vital, sexual energy through her ovaries in the same way that a man loses energy when he ejaculates. If this energy is harnessed through ovary breathing, all this life force can be circulated to improve the health of the body, skin, and organs, increasing your life span, clearing your mind, and boosting your immune system. Ovary breathing is also a great way to open up to having full-body orgasms.”

To do this there is a simple practice called Ovary Breathing:

OVARY BREATHING

1. Focus on the ovaries in Yoni Mudra, hands forming a downward triangle over the ovaries.

2.Sit quietly, and do throat breathing, rasping the breath, over the throat, making an ocean-like sound, with your tongue resting on your palate.

3. Focus on the ovaries until you feel their energy expand and become warm.

4. As you breathe in, gently contract the opening to the yoni, using the muscles of the first gate, and as you breathe out relax the muscles. Use your mind, breath, and muscles to do this gently. Soon you will not need to use the muscles, and the breath and mind will do it automatically. This motion helps to draw energy into the ovarian palace, warming you up.

5. Continue, this, and begin to collect the warm energy at the ovarian place.

6. As this energy builds, you can start to breathe and circulate it into the ovarian loop, the heart loop.

7. You can also send it to the perineum, yoni, and through the gateways, one by one, with the prayers for each gateway: praise, gratitude, and compassion.

8. Finish the practice with storing and sending all the energy into the womb or ovary loops.

This practice should not be done during ovulation.
