Those come from weak subconsciousness.

 

Nocturnal emissions with a dream, perhaps.

 

Nocturnal emissions with no dream are called 滑精/huajing, which is different from those with a dream, usually called 遺精/yijing or 夢遺/mengyiHuajing is generally understood to be primarily caused by weak kidney yang. There are various types of mengyi which are categorized by their causes, which can include excessive desire, built up jing fluid, kidney yin deficiency leading to a type of "fire" (metaphorically speaking) that disturbs the mind during sleep and triggers wet dreams; and visits from entities which in English I suppose we could call incubi/succubi.

 

"Weak subconscious" arguably plays a role in all of this, but not necessarily the main role. For instance--supposing that we interpret the term "weak subconscious" in a similar way--a person with this problem may be more easily "seduced" in sleep by a ghost. However, strong qi in and of itself will protect the body from the advances of such creatures, and not everybody who has strong qi has a strong mind, just as not all people with strong minds have strong qi.

Lack of qi circulation / qi stagnation

 

Premature ejaculation is not generally treated as a symptom of qi stagnation or insufficient qi circulation in Chinese medicine, and since Chinese medicine is very good at treating this condition, I lend credence to its explanations. Premature ejaculation is also more about deficient kidney yang (leading to the inability of the body to "hold" jing in long enough) or kidney yin deficiency (leading to "deficiency fire," which means that the various sexual responses, including both arousal and orgasm, are too easily triggered, kind of like a fuse that burns way too quickly). Chinese medicine also recognizes the mental factors that dominate the thinking on this condition in western medicine, anxiety and excessive excitement being the main culprits.

To the original poster: Jou Tsung Hwa's books "Dao of meditation" and "Dao of Taijiquan" covers some use of the reverse breathing method. They are a little difficult to understand without a teacher.

 

Also thanks to Taomeow your comments have clarified some of the confusion I had while doing some reading. I am male but did practice with a few female players/practitioners.

Reverse Breathing is Bullshit


Sorry to say, it is a complete fallacy. Reverse Breathing is the ultimate goal in martial arts and Qigong.

BTW I can give you tons of examples for the use of Reverse Breathing(RB).

The ChiDragon campaign of lies stacked upon lies stacked upon lies begins again.

 

Beginners: beware taking any qigongneigong, Daoism, etc. advice from ReturnDragon aka ChiDragon.
