Deep Diaphragmatic Breathing help

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, first serious post here. (So hey to all!)

 

I’ve been practicing deep diaphragmatic breathing for a good while now, following the Golden Flower Method (which I’m sure has it’s pros and cons). I’ve been practicing meditation for a long time now, so breathing and general energy work isn’t completely new to me.

 

What I’m not seeing is any changes, such as the energy movement described that moves down, round the bottom of your abdomen and back up the front. I can feel a general “gurgle” of energy sometimes, but definitely not this flowing movement that is suggested happens on its own. Has anyone hd success with this and  can offer any tips, suggestions and the like?
 

I understand there are a lot of parallels with general Daoist energy work, I’ve read the comprehensive guide to Nei Gong and there seems to be many.

 

Any thoughts and suggestions are very welcome

I've been around some long time practitioners (example Michael Winn) and they gurgle and burp throughout long meditation periods.  Interesting phenomena which may or may not be what your experiencing.  No suggestions other then it might be a good sign. 

 

I'm interested in how people interpret the Golden Flower Method (ex https://www.thedaobums.com/topic/37570-golden-flower-thingamabobs/?do=findComment&comment=862716)

Can you tell me what your practice is like?  ie the breathing and focus.

Thanks.
