Student’s Questions-  “Thanks for your answers… the sword hand question was more related to what appeared to be a stacked or double sword hand and where / why that could be used and how / when to do use it. To clarify: it looked like one sword hand with a second sword hand fist closing around the first sword fingers.  Thanks :)”

Answer-  Thank you for your insightful question.   Plainly put, the right hand “Sword Hand” mudra would be used for removing unwanted energies from people or places.  The left hand Sword Hand mudra is used for healing.  The right fits inside the left for the same reason that a real sword is carried in a scabbard.   If a real Samurai sword were carried without a case, serious harm could happen accidentally.

Additionally, the intent of the practitioner is of the utmost importance as well.  On the battlefield, one could save a life with a razor sharp sword or kill someone with a scabbard…

I am aware that this answer may create more questions, and these questions are beyond the scope of this limited, on-line class.

Thank you for your interest.

Question from a new student on Udemy-  first question-

Retsu – initially shows a different finger position (both index fingers are touching) in both the first and second handout, although the second handout (module 2) detail shows the position shown in the video.

Zai – initial diagrams in both handouts show fingers together, explanation photos in module 2 agrees with video with fingers separated. (Also very interested in this one as it appears [as does the sword hand] in several qigong moves so I’m really excited to add some detail here too).

I just wanted to check that the video / detail is correct and to ask if these might be done differently for different results, or if this is simply variations as you explained in the intro.

Answer-  As I explained in the intro, there are MANY variations in the mudras, and each group to use the mudras made their own changes.  Activating different acupuncture points in the hands “turns on” different power pathways in the body, which are then used for different purposes.

Question 2-   You use a double sword finger mudra at the end of cutting the grid. What is the purpose of that? Could you go into more detail here.

Answer-  The Sword Hand Mudra’s power begins in the lower Dan Tien.  The lower Dan Tien moves, which moves the spine, which moves the shoulder, which moves the elbow which moves the hand.  The Sword Hand Mudra is used to project the energized, focused intent of the practitioner out into his / her environment.  In this case, to cut the Mikkyo grid.

Question #3

In the clearing example video ….. when you are cutting the grid you have your non-cutting hand behind your back (others have hands on lower dantien). Are you using a protection mudra behind your back here – if yes, could you elaborate, please. Either way, could you advise on the best placement for the non-active hand, or possible placement/s and why they would be used.

Answer- I believe I was using a Sword Hand Mudra with my left hand as well.  Doing the Kuji-kiri, clearing and energizing the meridians & chakras will open one up to their intuition and higher self.  The left hand mudra while cutting the Mikkyo Grid with the right hand is / was a spontaneous occurrence for me.    Can one “plan” to hold a Sword Hand Mudra in the left hand?  Sure!  It’s the “I’ve got your back” energy and would prevent any energy from entering one’s energetic field from behind.

Letter from a Mikkyo student in Udemy Mikkyo class.

How do you use the mudras to meditate ?  For instance, if you want to be more self confident, would you use de Rin mudra? what would the mantra be?

Or if you’d want to heal you would use the Sha mudra?    How would a meditation of this kind go?                                   Thank you very much

I will take your questions in order.
1. Using the Kuji-kiri to meditate. First run through all the mudras and mantras. Then choose one that corresponds to any issue you may want to meditate on. The correspondences are listed in the on-line course material. For a higher connection to source, one could hold the Zai mudra, chant Zai and focus on the crown chakra. Hold long and how often will differ from person to another. Try it for ten minutes and see how you feel.
2. Self confidence and self esteem emanate from the Solar Plexus – Toh. First run all the Kuji kiri in sequence. Then hold the Toh mudra and chant Toh. While you do this, bring your awareness to the Toh meridian and feel the energy moving through the meridian. This exercise will help clear blockages to self confidence. Hold long and how often will differ from person to another. Try it for ten minutes and see how you feel.
3. Healing. Running the mudras & mantras in order will help facilitate any type of healing by clearing and energizing the meridians, chakras and energetic body. If the healing is emotional, after running all the meridians, hold the Sha mudra and chant Sha. Bring your awareness into the heart center and feel …. Is there a dark spot or stuck feeling?
Just observe what is, do not resist, suppress or deny what is. Just be with any darkness or pain and keep chant Sha and holding the mudra. Hold long and how often will differ from person to another. Try it for ten minutes and see how you feel.

Letter from a Mikkyo student in Udemy Mikkyo class-  Dimitra.       “Hallo, i am looking forward practicing Mikkyo daily. I would like to ask three things.

  1.  Which procedure i must follow to receive my certificate?
  2. Also by putting Sword hand mudra & Mikkyo Grid to the photo of a person do i have to do the Mikkyo mudras and mantras first? Do i think of something specific by doing it?
  3. By practicing San Jiao, which mudras do i have to do since i cannot see them clearly at the video? Thank you in advance.

Answer to Dimitra- The Udemy Mikkyo certificate is available through the website, when you see the trophy after completing the course, click on it and you will be lead to the Certificate pdf.  We now have Mikkyo certificates available through this website too.

2.  It is always helpful to clear and energize your chakras and meridians before cutting the Mikkyo grid and projecting your strong, clear intent into it.  If you are projecting a specific Reiki symbol for healing, then you would focus your intent on calling the symbol’s energy and then clear your mind to let the energy come through you (through your crown chakra & central channel) and then into the Grid.

3.  In the San Jiao video, I use the Zai mudra when pulling in source energy to open the crown chakra.  I then use Rin when pulling energy up from the pool beneath our feet and into the lower Dan Tien.  I also use Sha when drawing energy up to the heart Dan Tien and Zai as I guide the energy from the pool, out the crown chakra and down the outside of the energetic body.  Please enjoy your practice and let me know how it develops.

15 März 2017
San Jiao- Once the practitioner is familiar with the San Jiao exercise as described here, we can take another step. Complete the “draw down” portion of the San Jiao. When drawing up from the pool of accumulated Source/ Earth/ Self energy under the feet, direct the energy up through the body, through the three Dan Tien, out the crown chakra and back to the source. Reconnect with Source Energy for the same length of time that you drew down from it. Then allow your conscious awareness to go into the Source Energy with the energy you are sending to it. Stand there, eyes closed, hold the “Zai” hand mudra overhead, relax and let the Source Energy / Light communicate directly into your conscious awareness. When you are finished, return your conscious awareness to your body and record what you experienced.
This is a great exercise to expand your consciousness, increase your intuition, see beyond illusions and calm your mind.

Thanks for the question Timur….
Sifu Christopher Matsuo once told us in the Dragon Gate Sanctuary, that if a person took just one movement of Bagua and mastered it, like the palm change, that one move would be all that they ever need.
When it comes to Mikkyo, San Jiao might be the “one thing to master” above all.
San Jiao means ‘the three Dan Tien’ or ‘triple burners’ and refers to the three main energy centers in the human body. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) refers to the three Dan Tien as centers within the body where energy is stored and refined.

The Dan Tien are different from the chakras, which are ‘energy vortices’ or vortexes where energy come into and out of the body. While separate from the Dan Tien, the chakras cooperate and work with them.
In the San Jiao exercise we draw source energy through the body, from the crown chakra, through the three Dan Tien and out the feet.
As we flow source energy through the body with San Jiao, we focus on passing the energy through the three Dan Tien. This clears, stimulates and strengthens the connection between the Dan Tien.
We build a pool of Heaven / Divine / Source energy under our feet and collect it there. We “draw down” Heaven energy at least 9 times, but you can draw down for as long as you like….. It is a great moving meditation that clears the mind and energizes the body…
Once the draw down part is finished, we draw energy up from the pool into the body. This is an energetic mixture of Heaven energy, Earth energy and our energy. We draw energy from the pool into our lower Dan Tien 3 times, then into the Middle Dan Tien / Heart Center three times. And then we draw energy from the pool up to the upper Dan Tien three times and direct the energy out the crown chakra and guide it back down the energetic body and back to the pool.. This has the effect of strengthening the energetic body. A strong energetic body is an effective barrier to outside energies, and that makes San Jiao an important part of our energy work when we go to places in Germany where atrocities have taken place in our “Healing the Land” project. San Jiao helps keep out dark energies from places where people were treated inhumanely and murdered.

San Jiao continued…
When one begins to draw down the Source Energy with San Jiao “how much” one is receiving depends on what one is ready for….. As you advance in your study and use of Source Energy and the San Jiao exercise, it is possible to increase the flow of Source Energy through the three triple burners and the body… With focus and intent one can direct the Source Energy flow into and through the patterns and trauma that we humans tend to store in the body’s tissues. This can bring issues up for clearing. With awareness and consistent practice, San Jiao is an effective tool for gaining clarity.
As we continue our San Jiao discussion, we come to the Vortexes. The three Dan Tien within the body each form an energetic vortex. We connect the three Dan Tien with the San Jiao Exercise and then project and connect to form a vortex in our hand while in the Bagua or scanning position.

Krisztina, 25 März 2017

Michael, you said that in these Mikkyo classes, we just focus on healing ourselves, others and the land in the Mikkyo… and that we don’t examine the deeper meanings of the mudras and mantras at this time. Can you give us some more detail on the mudras and mantras in the blog?

Gladly… There are worlds of Mikkyo beyond what we are learning for our uses and the “Healing the Land” project.  For example, I have described Mikkyo as the clearing, energizing and connecting of the chakras, meridians and energetic body through mudras and mantras.  And that is enough for our purposes in Applied Spirituality.  We apply Mikkyo as energetic self-defense when we go to clear mass graves and concentration camps from stuck energy, soul fragments and trauma.

Kuji-in refers to the nine mudras associated with the nine one-syllyble mantras. As we mentioned in the Mikkyo class, the Kuji-in were used in the past to connect to, control and direct psychospiritual aspects of ourselves and other energies/deities.  One of the ancient uses of the Kuji-in was to manifest and unite all the forces of the universe against evil and harm.  Because of this application, Kuji-in was often used to “clear the way” when traveling through the wilderness, particularly in the mountains.  Remember that the Shugendo mountain people were the first to make written records of the Kuji-in (that we are aware of.)  As was also mentioned in class, the list of one-syllable mantras form a prayer in Japanese that can be translated to mean; “Heavenly warriors, come down and form a vanguard before me.”  Here are the longer Japanese mantras associated with the Kuji-in and the Deities or cosmic forces associated with them…

Longer Mantras                                                     Associated Deities

Rin    On baishiramantaya sowaka.                       Tammon-ten

Pyo   On ishanaya intaraya sowaka                      Gonzanze myô-o/

Toh   On jiterashi itara jibaratanō sowaka.             Jikoku-ten

Sha    On hayabaishiramantaya sowaka.               Kongō-yaksha myô-o

Kai    On nōmaku sanmanda basaradan kan.         Fudo myô-o

Jin     On aganaya in maya sowaka.                        Gundari myô-o

Retsu On irotahi chanoga jiba tai sowaka.              Komoku-ten

Zai     On chirichi iba rotaya sowaka.                      Dai-itoku myô-o

Zen    On a ra ba sha nō sowaka                            Zocho-ten

While living in Japan and studying calligraphy for two years, I visited many shrines and temples, like the Fudo myo Temple in Sasaguri.  Fudo myo is said to be the firey protector of the Buddha.

For these entry level classes, I like to present exercises for Mikkyo that can make YOUR life better now, without years of study.  Those who hear the call can get much deeper training…..

Noemi, 25 März, 2017

Michael, kannst du mir die genauer erklären?
Aber klar!

Der Einfachheit halber werde ich die entsprechenden Stellen am materiellen Körper als Bezugspunkt und Namen für die Chakren verwenden. Zunächst möchte ich erwähnen, dass das Wurzel- und das Kronenchakra unten bzw. oben aus dem Körper kommen. Alle anderen Chakren haben eine Vorder- und eine Rückseite. Nur die Kehle hat ein Mudra und Mantra für die Vorder- und ein anderes für die Rückseite das Chakras. Bedenkt man, wieviel Raum verbale Kommunikation in unserem Leben einnimmt, dann versteht man leicht, warum das so ist.

Das Wort Chakra bedeutet Wirbel oder Spinnrad. Die sieben Chakren sind die Hauptzentren spiritueller und energetischer Kraft im menschlichen Körper. Die früheste überlieferte Vorstellung von Chakren stammt aus dem Jahr 2.500 v.Chr. in Indien. Stellen Sie sich zwei kleine Windhosen vor, deren Spitzen sich in der Mitte des Körpers verbinden – so könnten die vorderen und hinteren Chakren aussehen… Es gibt mehrere Hundert Chakren im Körper. Die sieben wichtigsten, die wir behandeln werden, beginnen am unteren Ende des Rumpfes und verlaufen nach oben; das letzte kommt aus dem Scheitel. Sie stehen mit bestimmten Wirbeln im Rückgrat und mit wichtigen Knotenpunkten des Nervensystems in Verbindung.

Rin entspricht dem Wurzelchakra, das sich am unteren Rumpfende befindet. Das Wurzelchakra gilt als die Grundlage unseres materiellen Körpers, als unsere Verbindung zur Erde, die die Lebenskraft im Körper stimuliert. Es ist mit den Nebennieren verbunden. Wenn das Wurzelchakra gereinigt und aktiviert ist, lassen wir das in unser Leben, was wir brauchen. Wir verbannen überflüssige Dinge und ungesunde Situationen aus unserem Leben.

Pyo entspricht dem Sakralplexuschakra, das jeweils zwei Fingerbreit unter und hinter dem Bauchnabel liegt. Ein »Plexus« ist ein wichtiger Knotenpunkt des Nervensystems. Das Sakralchakra ist die Energiequelle unsere Sexualität, Empfindsamkeit und niederen Gefühle. Es ist mit den Organen im Unterleib verbunden: mit den Sexualorganen, dem Bauch, den Gedärmen und der Prostata. Wenn das Sakralplexuschakra gereinigt und aktiviert ist, erleben wir einen Strom von Fülle, Kreativität und Freude in unserem Leben.

Toh entspricht dem Solarplexuschakra, das sich am vorne am unteren Ende des Brustkorbs befindet. Das Solarplexuschakra steht mit unserer Willensstärke und mentalen Aspekten in Beziehung und es balanciert und steuert unsere persönliche Kraft, Selbstkontrolle und höhere emotionale Angelegenheiten. Körperlich ist es für die Organe des oberen Bauchs zuständig: Magen, Milz, Nieren, Bauchspeicheldrüsen, Leber und Gallenblase. Wenn das Solarxplexuschakra gereinigt und aktiviert ist, sind wir energiegeladen, leidenschaftlich und gesund.

Sha entspricht dem Herz-Chakra, das in der Gegend des Herzes liegt und als das zentrale Chakra die Brücke zwischen unserem körperlichen Dasein und unserer spirituellen Erfahrung bildet. Es gilt auch als Sitz des Astralleibs, wird von Liebe angetrieben und beeinflusst unser Mitgefühl, Vertrauen und Verbundensein mit der Menschheit. Körperlich beeinflusst es Herz, Herzbeutel, Lungen, Thymusdrüse und Immunsystem. Wenn das Herzchakra gereinigt und aktiviert ist, sind wir liebevoll, freundlich, mitfühlend, dankbar und großzügig zu uns selbst und anderen.

Kai entspricht der Vorderseite des Kehlchakras. Viele im Körper und im Unbewussten gefangene Muster gehen auf Dinge zurück, die wir gesagt haben oder uns zu sagen nicht getraut haben. Im Laufe eines Lebens kommt es oft vor, dass man sich »auf die Zunge beißt« und aus Angst etwas nicht sagt, obwohl wir denken, dass es gesagt werden sollte…

Die Vorderseite des Kehlchakras befindet sich im unteren Ende des Halses und beeinflusst Kommunikation, Aufrichtigkeit und Hellhörigkeit. Körperlich beeinflusst es Mund, Zähne, Hals und Zahnfleisch. Wenn die Vorderseite des Kehlchakras gereinigt und aktiviert ist, kommunizieren wir mühelos und kraftvoll unsere Wahrheit. Andere hören und verstehen klar, was wir zu sagen haben.

Jin entspricht der Rückseite des Kehlchakras. Sie liegt an der Mitte des Halses und ist für Kommunikation, Aufrichtigkeit und Hellhörigkeit zuständig. Körperlich beeinflusst sie Halsmuskulatur, Zungenwurzel, Mandeln und Kehlkopf. Wenn die Rückseite des Kehlchakras gereinigt und aktiviert ist, können wir einen inneren Dialog erfahren, der weniger aus unbewussten Mustern unseres Ichs kommt und stärker aus den höheren Gestalten unseres Selbst.

Retsu entspricht dem Stirnchakra oder Dritte Auge, das in der Mitte der Stirn liegt. Dieses Chakra steht für die Elemente des Geistes, Lichtes, der Intuition, Vorstellungskraft und Einsicht. Körperlich beeinflusst es Hypophyse, Zirbeldrüse, Augen, Nebenhöhlen und Hirn.

Zai entspricht dem Kronenchakra. Dieses befindet sich ganz oben am Schädel und ist die Grundlage unseres spirituellen Körpers sowie unsere Verbindung zur Quellenergie. Das Kronenchakra beeinflusst den spirituellen Willen, unsere Inspiration, unser Vermögen, etwas zu »wissen«, ohne das man es uns mitgeteilt hat. Körperlich beeinflusst es das Gehirn, das zentrale Nervensystem und andere Strukturen im Hirn. Wenn das Kronenchakra gereinigt und aktiviert ist, sind wir stark mit unserer Quelle verbunden. Quellenergie und göttliche Leitung fließen leichter in unser Leben…

Zen entsprechen keine Meridiane oder Chakren. Stattdessen verbindet es alle vorherigen Chakren, Meridiane und Energie zu einer einzigen stimmigen Einheit. Außerdem entspricht Zen dem gesamten Energiekörper.

During the 25 März class, the question was asked, what to do with FEAR when it comes up….

The mind looks for a way to manifest and express what it is holding in the subconscious.  Holding, storing, hiding, supressing….

It is possible – not to push the emotion away in avoidance – and not to wallow in the emotion…  just let it be there and be present.  At first this is not comfortable.  However, the feeling changes.  What we label and experience as fear changes … melts.

The mind looks for a way to manifest and express what it is holding in the subconscious.  One cannot handle and resolve emotions like fear with the same mind that created it.  Doing so may open the door for the mind to blow up and exaggerate the emotion… “Its just too big.. its just too much…”

From my personal experience, our greatest fear and our greatest joy is self created and self labeled.  Be present with the emotion that your mind created and step inside of it.  Bring your conscious awareness with you.  Notice the energy that makes up the inside of your greatest fear.  When you are able, use the mind to summon up your greatest joy.  Allow Joy to take on a shape, and then step inside of that shape.  Notice the energy that makes up the inside of your greatest joy…. You will notice that it is made of the same energy as your greatest fear.  We humans take source energy with our minds and create everything and then label it.  We then go into pursuit of it (joy) or avoidance of it (fear.)

Be present with it (whatever it is), then step into it and notice what (the energy) you used to create it and then watch it change, dissolve.

Mikkyo and Ninjas

We use Mikkyo to clear, energize and connect our meridians, chakras and energetic body.  Different groups applied Mikkyo differently in the past.  One group of warriors and ninjas applied the mentality of Miyamoto Musashi, who wrote that one “investigate this thoroughly” through practice rather than trying to learn them by merely reading.  They would practice Mikkyo like an 8 hour per day job until they mastered the ability to forcefully project the Kuji-kiri (Mikkyo Grid) and knock an opponent’s consciousness right out of their body.  Once the consciousness was merely observing from above, it was an easy matter for the Mikkyo master to step in with a sword and end the fight.  Who has the diligence to train in this manner today?

Realizing that there is no “other”, our use of Mikkyo focuses on getting ourselves clear and connected to source.  In “Healing the Land, we use Mikkyo to clear the energy of murder and bloodshed from places of atrocities.  Basically, we are the generation that cleans up the energy left behind by men like Musashi Sensei…..

Reply to David Somers Question on Kaji, 15.04.17

Thanks for the appreciation and good question on Kaji, David.  Sifu Chris always taught us the External and Internal martial arts, self-defense and healing, together.  That also seems only natural to me.

Kaji is defined as, “the practice of connecting with ‘enlightened energy’ for healing, protection and spiritual development.”   Many would say that a requirement for the practice of Kaji is a sincere belief and connection with Dainichi Nyorai.  The Shugenja or Yamabushi mountain ascetics practiced Kaji and kept the ceremonial part of Kaji to a minimum.

In Mikkyo, we first focus on getting our own system clean, energized and connected through San Jiao.  An interesting thing about San Jiao is that we begin by pulling down “Source Energy” and guiding it through the body and into the earth under our feet to form a ‘pool’ of energy there.  Recently I had students use a ‘Bio-Life Force’ chart to personally check (with pendulum) their energy level before we started a 10 minute San Jiao Set.  We then checked our body’s energy level after the San Jiao and everyone saw the increase in energy.   Then I took this one step further…… and had everyone do another 5 minutes of San Jiao with the intent to DOUBLE the amount of energy they were pulling down and flowing through their body…. Everyone saw their personal energy level double.  The point is that one can increase the energy in their body, step by step, with San Jiao.  Then we use this energy with Kuji-in (the nine one-syllable mantras) and Kuji-kiri (the nine mudras).  In class we have the associated Meridian for each on a big screen TV and run a ball of energy through the meridian as we hold the mudra and chant the mantra.  This is an excellent exercise to do at home and as the source energy runs through the body, emotional and mental patterns hidden / stored in the body are weakened and dissolved.  Which, in turn, allows one to feel more comfortable “downloading” higher levels of energy from the source.

As a Mikkyo Practitioner gets clearer and energetically stronger, and they connect with the meridian points of someone who is sick, they can run high levels of source energy through the meridians of the patient.  If one wants to call this source energy “Dainichi Nyorai” then please do.  My personal experience from standing in this energy, is that it is what makes up everything.  The greatest joy, the greatest fear, the biggest tree and smallest turd…. all made from the same source energy, once you stand inside the energy of them.  Running source energy through the body of another will help loosen and dissolve their emotional and mental patterns stuck / stored in the body.

Thanks again David, and I will talk more about this in next week’s post…. bis dann!

9 July, 2017. Sunday Full moon “Power Place Reconnect” was super!   A gathering  of beautiful souls in a hi-energy place…

And we have another exciting DIY Orgonite Energetic Art Workshop.  See the FB Event here

We will be creating high-energy 7cm square pyramids and pendants.  Attendance is limited to 6 so let me know right away if you would like to attend…

Makka Ho

Matthew Anderson asked if we use the Makka Ho exercises to accent our practice.  While I am aware of the Makka Ho, we have not been teaching them.  So, lets talk a little about Makka Ho exercises and other practices to help Chi flow through the meridians.

In Mikkyo 1 we teach “Running the Meridians”, and begin with the Rin meridian and take each mudra and mantra in sequence up to the crown chakra (2 for the throat, front & back) and to Zen, which represents the energetic body and has no meridian….  Here are the Mikkyo 1 meridians, mudras & mantras in order…..

Makka Ho exercises follow a set pattern…

Metal element and the Lung / Large Intestine meridians.

Earth element and the Stomach / Spleen meridians

Fire element and the Heart / Small Intestine meridians

Water element and the Kidney / Bladder meridians

Secondary Fire and the Triple Heater / Pericardium meridians

Wood element and the Liver / Gall Bladder meridians

Here are the meridians in order….

In the advanced Mikkyo practice, we have a standing meditation.   Stand in a “Tree Stance” and run the energy through the meridians in sequence; Lung, Large Intestine,Stomach, Spleen, Heart, Small Intestine, Bladder, Kidney, Pericardium, San Jiao, Gall Bladder and Liver.

This is the “proper sequence” of meridians given in “A Manual of  Acupunture.” by Peter Deadman.  Exercises like Makka Ho or the 5 Tibetians also work to energize these meridians in sequence.

Reply to Antony, 24 Oct 2017

Hello Antony, Thank you very much for your question!

What a coincidence, that you ask about Sacred Art, and this week I am finishing my on-line course on
DIY Orgonite Energetic Art Workshop.
In the course, I start with my inspiration, sacred art from the mountain temples in Japan. I will continue this answer in the main-post so that I can post photos of the Taizokai & Kongokai mandalas that we are talking about…..

What about the vajra and Bell… I will start with the bell. In the Shingon temple the Mikkyo and Bagua Master (now Grand Master) would begin each session with tingsha and playing a Tibetian Bell.  When he played the bell, one could feel their connection to the light grow stronger…

This was done, to clear the mind.  To leave the “world” behind, and prepare to receive the clear light of the Mikkyo or Bagua teachings.

Listening to someone play the bell will quickly tell you how clear they are… When the bell-ringer is empty, the bell if free to resonate with the cosmos and bring healing to those who hear its tones.  When the bell-ringer is in their mind, the bell will “catch” and “skip”… creating a chaotic-tone that reflects their inner mind….  Bell playing practice in private will help clear a chaotic-mind.

The Vajra

The Vajra is a hand-held symbol meaning “thunderbold” or “diamond”….We are familiar with them as meditation tools or items used in rituals.  The Vajra symbolizes the properties of the diamond and thunderbolt, bringing together that which is indestructible with the irresistible force.

To hold the Vajra in meditation helps to focus the mind and gives the subconscious the message that we are aligning with the that which is eteranal…   The light that both makes up this world and at the same time, is beyond this world.

 Taizokai & Kongokai Mandals and their use

The top row are the Kongokai Mandala and the bottom row are the Taizokai Mandala.  These images are collected from the internet, I do not own them.

The top row are the Kongokai Mandala and the bottom row are the Taizokai Mandala.  These images are collected from the internet, I do not own them.

To answer Antony`s question on how they are used, I can only share my personal experience.  When I was in India studying chanting in Shiva Temples in 2010, I got to trade Shamanic Trance sessions with Dr. Ragu.  During one of my sessions, I found myself in a place that was black, like the midnight sky without stars.  I entered a circle of lights and one of the lights was larger than the rest….. As I was visiting Shiva Temples in India, I took “it” to be Shiva…. the pattern in this mandala reminds me of that experience…

Using my experience from my training in Hawaiian Shamanism, I entered into the “main” entity of light.  The one I took to be Shiva.  I was expecting to feel love and compassion for the human condition, however that was not the case.  There was nothing.  No judgement, no love, no hate…. nothing.  The Observer.

Just observing personalities… asleep in the dream….   Dr. Ragu let me stay in the light for 45 minutes, and when he brough me back, the first thing I said was; “I could have stayed longer..”

So how does one use these Mandalas to help with their enlightenment?  I would suggest to go into deep meditation in front of one, chanting the names as you put yourself into a trance.  Then go into each individual energy and see for yourself what they have to share with you…  If nothing else, it WILL help you see beyond the illusion we call reality.

Thanks for the question Antony..

    Hey Michael, I have seen the website and was wondering how the San Jiao works and why / how it helps build up the energetic body..? Thanks

  2. Krisztina

    Michael, you said that in these Mikkyo classes, we just focus on healing ourselves, others and the land in the Mikkyo… and that we don’t examine the deeper meanings of the mudras and mantras at this time. Can you give us some more detail on the mudras and mantras in the blog?

  3. Noemi

    Michael, kannst du mir die Chakras, Mudras und Mantras genauer erklären?

  4. Rike

    Hi Michael! Ich hab gelesen, dass Mikkyo mit Ninjas zu tun hat – kannst du dazu mehr erzählen? Danke und liebe Grüße, Rike

  5. Mike

    Just a note about the DIY Energetic Art Workshop coming up 29th April 2017… We use Mikkyo to anchor high energy into the art as it is being made…. One of the many practical uses of Mikkyo !

    Goddard Sensei, Mina San,

    Hello, my name is David Somers, from the Tampa Bay Area of Florida. I am an ordained Buddhist minister, Reiki practitioner, and a lifelong practitioner of various Budo – martial ways.
    I’d like to find out, Goddard Sensei, if you are planning on doing a course on Kaji? From what I understand Kaji is a healing art taught within the Mikkyo tradition of Shingon Bukkyoto, ne?
    The reason I am so interested in Buddhism, Mikkyo and the healing arts, as that at one time Budo, the healing, and spiritual were taught as one. Not many Dojo teach that way anymore. It is in my hopes to bring them all back together, as one, as they should be, in my opinion, atleast.
    Thank you Goddard Sensei, for bringing these valuable teachings to the forefront, making them accessible to all who wish to learn. It is appreciated very much! Domo Arigato Gozaimashita, Sensei!

    Gassho,

    Sorry in advance for the short reply, but I have to head out. By source energy, do you mean Ki, or Reiki? Also, can you tell us about San Jiao? Thanks in advance!

    • Michael

      Thanks for the San Jiao question David. San Jiao is THE source. When we draw down energy from “the Source”, that source is the source of all. Ki, the Reiki energies, positive, negative, all. It is very useful during San Jiao to direct the source energy through the 3 Dan Tien and also direct the energy through the ego and all unconscious patterns stored in the body. This helps to dissolve the ego and unconscious patterns that can run our behavior. With out patterns and ego, stepping into the light that we are become easier and easier….

    8uhr morgens mit 4grad Lufttemperatur schwimmen gehen ist wohl das tollkühnste, dass ich mir seit längerem getraut hab
    Super erfrischt mit San Jiao am Wasser geht es jetzt mit dreifacher Sonne in den Tag
    Danke Michael Goddard für das Weitergeben von San Jiao. Die Sonnenarbeit ist wirklich intensiv gut tuend für mich.

    Euch einen ebenso lichten oder lunaren Montag für euch

    • Michael Goddard

      Thanks for the question David… the San Jiao is a form of high-energy Qi-Gong…. we begin where we are at energetically, and begin to step up the amount of source energy that the human body is capable of handling… Along the way, patterns stored in the sub-conscious begin to weaken and dissolve as the energy flow increases…

  10. Michael Goddard

    Good news, I got front of (and behind) the camera to explain the energetic depth and details of the Toh Technique from the Mikkyo class. Check out the video that will be a small part of the upcoming Mikkyo 2 class and is an advanced application of a strong energetic field….Easy to understand and follow..
    This is the “magic trick” we use to return people`s energy to them.

    Another Announcement: This month marks the beginning of our use of Mikkyo in Berlin to clear commercial spaces. The same energetic Taoist techniques we use to clear Prison Camps and Mass Graves is very effective in clearing dark and stuck energy out of our living and work spaces.
    We can energetically clear spaces for you or provide guidance and teaching on how to clear areas for yourself.
    Please contact Michael for complete confidentiality, solid results and more details on how we can help you.

  11. Olivier

    Greetings Michael,
    The us of Mikkyo to heal and clear is really wonderful. I have few questions and I think that response is not easy especially into a blog. I’m sorry for that but at same time I think that it can healp many people on the path.

    1/ Could you teach on how to use Mikkyo to protect someone or something, a place etc ( after clearing process) against negative energies ?

    2/I wish to use Mikkyo as tool for enlightenment, I know that is not an easy task and great dedication are needed. But what is the method ? Do I need to keep each mudra very long time and try to keep silence within ?

    3/Could you make a video or pdf about San Jiao process ?

    4/About more esoteric approach, how to practice with Kurikara as a spiritual tool ?

  12. Michael Goddard

    Hello Olivier,
    Thank you for you questions. How about I answer 1 per week? Lets start with using Mikkyo to protect someone / something / someplace after a clearing process against negative energies.
    To begin the Mikkyo place clearing process, we use San Jiao to draw in Source Energy. We then use the mudras & mantras to clear, energize and connect the chakras, meridians and energetic body… This keeps negative energies out of our physical and energetic body. Then we call the negative energies into 1 place and cut the Mikkyo Grid over them. The bundle of negativity is then sent to the Source to continue its evolution and leave us in peace. HOWEVER, this creates an energetic hole where the negative energies used to “be”. Unless this hole is filled, something of a similar negativity (or worse) will be attracted into the hole.
    We cut the second Mikkyo Grid and project Reiki or other high energy / sacred symbols into the grid to fill the hole.
    AND it is also advised to have something in the room to “hold the space”. Energetic Art, like paintings of the Flower of Life, statues of Buddha, Orgonite Pyramids, Reiki Symbols, any representation of a high frequency nature. This “Sacred Space Holder” helps to keep negative energies from re-entering the place after the clearing process.
    Also helpful in keeping places clear are occasional smudging with white sage or other incense. In Hawaii we would take a wooden bowl with sea water (or salt water) walk through the room chanting and splashing the salt water all over with a Ti leaf (not too many Ti plants in Berlin tho…)
    Next week I will talk about Mikkyo as a pathway to enlightenment…

  13. Olivier

    Hi Michael,
    Thank you to give us the opportunity to learn more about deeper side of Mikkyo, yes one answer per week is great. About the last question I need to be more specific. When I ask a more esoteric approach of Kurikara I mean the remover of all illusion and at same time I see it as the mikkyo way to the true nature of kundalini. When kundalini attain sahasrara, the veil of maya is removed and at same time all the brain neuron are activated so the seeker can attain the truth. Kurikara and Fudo Myo seem to be a very important aspect of Mikkyo as both of them cut the illusion at all levels and as you know when the illusion is removed we can attain the non distorded reality, this is in my opinion the genuine enlightenment.
    But this is only words and mental understanding, we need your help to know how to practice and been empowered by Fudo Myo and Kurikara. As the negativity can be seen as something who is not the true Self, I think that such practice could be an invaluable tool as spiritual practice but also as a remover of obstacle, issue, problem and stagnation into daily life.

    Olivier asked; “2/I wish to use Mikkyo as tool for enlightenment, I know that is not an easy task and great dedication are needed. But what is the method ? Do I need to keep each mudra very long time and try to keep silence within ?”

    Thank your Olivier for the question… I will start with a re-post from15 März 2017
    San Jiao- Once the practitioner is familiar with the San Jiao exercise as described here, we can take another step. Complete the “draw down” portion of the San Jiao. When drawing up from the pool of accumulated Source/ Earth/ Self energy under the feet, direct the energy up through the body, through the three Dan Tien, out the crown chakra and back to the source. Reconnect with Source Energy for the same length of time that you drew down from it. Then allow your conscious awareness to go into the Source Energy with the energy you are sending to it. Stand there, eyes closed, hold the “Zai” hand mudra overhead, relax and let the Source Energy / Light communicate directly into your conscious awareness. When you are finished, return your conscious awareness to your body and record what you experienced.
    This is a great exercise to expand your consciousness, increase your intuition, see beyond illusions and calm your mind.
    Once you have re-connected with source in this manner, the Kuji-in (9 mudras & mantras) use this high frequency source energy to clear, energize and connect the meridians, chakras & energetic body.
    Here I like to take my time and lead a globe of source energy through each of the meridians as I hold the mudra and chant the mantra. This has a more energizing effect when compared to doing Kuji-in alone.7
    Then mind shuts down to outside distractions and our mental “to-do list” when engaged in connecting to, and leading Source Energy throughout the meridians and body.
    Some of the benefits of this practice include increased intuition and seeing more clearly through “Maya”, the illusion of duality. Having just connected with the Source, it is easier to see that all is one. Diligence in practice can take one very far down the path to enlightenment.
    More next week!

  15. Michael

    The 6th of June Olivier asked;
    “Could you make a video or pdf about San Jiao process ?”
    Well, a pdf is faster. See the link Here….
    As the Weather in Berlin is supposed to be good in Berlin this week, I will get a short video made with some extra details…”
    Olivier also asked;
    “About more esoteric approach, how to practice with Kurikara as a spiritual tool ?”
    Thank you Olivier.
    I assume you meant Kurikara, the sword of FudoMyo, the protector of the Buddha…
    Kurikara is the double edged sword of wisdom that cuts through ignorance that FudoMyo holds in his right hand along with the rope he holds in his left hand. The rope is used to bind those still slave to their violent and passionate natures.
    How have we use the Kurikara as a spiritual tool? The Sword-hand mudra is our personal Kurikara…. it is with the Sword-hand mudra that we cut the First Mikkyo Grid that binds the dark and stagnate energies when we clear places. It is also our personal Kurikara (Sword-hand mudra) that cuts the second Mikkyo Grid to project the Reiki or other high-vibrational symbol into to hold the place clear. This is the first and obvious use of the Kurikara.

    Another use of the Kurikara is in advanced Shamanic Journey…. when the person in trance encounters something along the journey that they do not know how to deal with, that scares them, then we use our Kurikara (Sword-hand mudra) to cut or stab into the 3rd eye of the frightful entity to subdue it…
    Because these “frightful entites” are usually creations of the person on the journey, we just subdue the entity and through dialog come to the understanding the the entity leaves the person in peace.
    This is an advanced technique and very effective against any dark energies encountered while in trance.

    Thanks for the question, Olivier, more soon!
    From a place of love and light, Michael

  16. Michael Goddard

    Opps, see the links for the English and Deutsch San Jiao pdfs at the top of the page!

  17. Olivier

    Thank you Michael for your great answer who will keep me busy for long time. I wish to add something else.Regarding Kurikara, the sword is also a symbol of the inner dragon, you can see this aspect into various statue and paintings especially when the sword is standing alone, the fire dragon seems to ascent around the sword. In my opinion this is a clear symbol of the kundalini raising and when it reach the crown area we become like Fudo Myo as we are able to attain the Truth without any illusion ( as the brain area is enlightened by the kundalini) so I would like to know if there is a way to raise kundalini safely using Mikkyo.
    With deep gratitude
    Olivier

    Great news for those living in Berlin and interested in getting into Mikkyo 1 to strengthen their energetic body and deepen their inner peace…
    We will be holding a Mikkyo 1 class at WerderStr. 18, Tempelhof, 12105 Berlin….. that is short walk from the U6 UllsteinStr Bahnhof. Class is Saturday, 15 July 2017 and starts at 10:00 and goes till 17:00… lunch included!

  19. Michael Goddard

    on Jun 26 Olivier asked; “the fire dragon seems to ascent around the sword. In my opinion this is a clear symbol of the kundalini raising and when it reach the crown area we become like Fudo Myo as we are able to attain the Truth without any illusion ….. I would like to know if there is a way to raise kundalini safely using Mikkyo?”

    Thanks for the comment and question Olivier… All the sacred and energetic paintings and statutes are one aspect of the light. As powerful as some are, they can only represent just one small aspect of the whole light… Having said that, we notice with the Kuri-kara, the flaming sword of Fudo-myo, either a sword with a flaming dragaon, or a flaming sword with a dragon (in Japan there are many different ways this was depicted). To me, what came first was the sword. That means the spiritual practice of bringing the light down into the human body, standing in a column of light… this is the same light our ego-mind used to create the illusions and patterns that run our behavior and daily lives. As this light pour in through spiritual practices such as San Jiao, the illusions and patterns begin to dissolve… It is in this state, where the Mikkyo-practitioner begins to see beyond the ego-mind illusions and patterns that they begin to see the “world” for what it is… the creation of their ego-mind…

    From this vantage point, the sleeping “Fire-Dragon” can awake and the rising of the kundalini becomes a spontaneous occurance…. How long does this take? That is determined by how attached one is to their ego-mind created illusions…

    Next part of Olivier`s question-
    “I would like to know if there is a way to raise kundalini safely using Mikkyo?”
    I do not have the details behind the stories about people who went mad by raising their kundalini “too soon”, so I cannot comment on that. I was witness to 1 person who had their 3rd eye forced open by a Master… after one week of being able to “see” creatures from other dimensions as if they were in this dimension, the person begged to have their 3rd eye closed again.
    What I would say is, clear yourself first. Use San Jiao, stand in, live in, the light. Doing this step first will connect one with the light… the light from which everything is made. Everything in this dimension and all others. Once one has this “Knowing I am part of the All”, then other aspects of reality can hold no fear for you….. Get Clear first, then every thing will fall into its place by its self, including the raising of the kundalini.

    Thank you Olivier for the interesting questions, and continue walking in the light…
    I am Michael

  20. Olivier

    Thank you for this great answer. From your message and my research, I understand that Fudo Myo Lead us directly to the center of the Divine Self represented by Dainichi Nyorai into the Mikkyo mandala. In my own understanding one of the secret of Mikkyo is to lead us into our Inner Sun Space or Self ( the cleaning process stages seems represented by the Myo Deities) and be finally merged here all the time ( knowing that I am a part of all and at same time all is part of me).
    As the Myos are teachers/ king of mystical knowledge, how can I invoke them through Mikkyo to get their help and energies ? I think that is a very important question regarding Mikkyo but at same time difficult as we are not monk and cant do the very complicated rituals of Mikkyo. So there is a simple way to invoke them and perhaps doing a sort of inner daily meditation in which we try to be link to them during daily life activity ? A kind of meditation in action ?
    Thank you
    Olivier

  21. Oliver

    Dear Michael,
    I have 3 questions for you to expand my practice of Mikkyo through 3 areas of practice :

    Healing :How to use Mikkyo to heal illness within the body of ourselves and others ?Also for heavy medication like immunosuppressive drug, how I can use Mikkyo to stop or neutralize the side effect or at least to help the body to keep balance.

    Spiritual : How to use Mikkyo to help meditation and attain inner silence as this is the key to attain deeper level ?

    Occult :I have read many story about Mikkyo and the occult powers who come with it .Here I would like to know if we can attain them through our practice and used to help others and ourselves. I consider only the positive side of them and I know that some people could use them to harm or kill but this is real for any other spiritual practice at some different levels..

  22. Michael

    Hello Oliver, Thank you for the new series of good questions…. lets take the first one about healing.
    -Disclaimer- Michael Goddard and this blog do not offer medical advice. If you think you need medical advice, go get it.-
    Starting with San Jiao, we flood the body with divine light, connect the three Dan Tien and ground ourselves energetically with the earth. Through San Jiao we become the energetic connection between heaven and earth.
    When we do the Kuji-kiri, the Mikkyo mudras and mantras, we run energy through the chakras, meridians and nerves.
    It has been suggested that all illnesses begin in the body as an energy imbalance. San Jiao and Kuji-kiri gently work to bring the balance back and then take the body and all systems in the body to robust health…..
    So, to see results with San Jiao, do it for 30 minutes every morning, combined with deep breathing. Then run energy through the meridians in sequence with the Kuji-kiri for 15 minutes. Try this for a month and see what improvements the life force can bring into your life…..

  23. Olivier

    Dear Michael,
    I’m very grateful for your help and advice. I wish to add another very important question : how to stop or neutralize a black magic attack from any kind ? Just to give you a better idea of what I have in mind : I dont want to enter into magical war or anything like that, only to heal myself or someone else from magical attack and find a way to be protected all the time from new attack. I think that many people will be happy to learn more on this subject.
    Blessings to you
    Olivier

  24. Michael

    Hello Olivier and thank you for the question… Right now I am on Sao Miguel Island in the Azores. This is the end of the Michael Ley Line that runs through S. England. I can give a more complete answer when I get back to Berlin.
    The best way to protect yourself against energetic (black magic) attack is to do San Jiao for 10 minutes, Kuji Kiri (Mikkyo mudras &Mantras). This strengthens your energetic body to protect yourself. Then do the “Toh technique” to return negative energy to its source.
    Details for the Toh technique can be found at the top of the Mikkyo Blog..
    I will go into more detail when I get back to my Berlin base.
    Much love and aloha, Michael

  25. Olivier

    Hello Michael,
    Thank you for your advice. It seems to work very well. Could you teach us how to emitting chi or if you prefer how to do external chi transmission healing using Mikkyo ? As we use San Jiao it should be possible to store great quality of yuan chi and refine it in order to be able to share it but I’m not an expert into this area so if you have any advice on external chi transmission it will be a great addition as I think that is very important for us to help other around us with Mikkyo.
    I have seen Chi Gong Master able to be or live all the time into a pool or litteraly limitless ocean of chi, their presence is by itself an healing for environement and other, also they can send great wave of healing qi to people. Have you an idea on how to be a” chi channel” like these Masters ? ( or a training who can lead to such realisation ?).
    Other question : do you work also with sacred geometry and power spot(geobiology ) ?

    Thanks and have a great travel
    Olivier

  26. Olivier

    Hello Michael,
    I hope that you are doing very well. You have write the longer mantra for each hand seal. Ex . Rin On baishiramantaya sowaka. Deity : Tammon-ten

    This kind of practice is very interesting for me as this is a way here to activate the deity ( for example Tammon-Ten) aspect of the Self and each of the longer mantra invoke another deity aspect. So my question is : could you give use the method to use these longer mantras.

    Let me know if I’m right : In my understanding I do the mudra, chant the longer mantra and see myself as the deity ( aspect of my Self – inner mandala- ). In our example Tammon-Ten is a deity who can gives strength so I can affirm : I’m strong in body and mind, I’m master of myself etc…depending on the need. Or I can affirm and activate the mystical aspect of the deity ” I’m the divine diamond”.
    According to your teaching I can invoke the deity aspect first within then later I can project it into people or area to help them. For example using RIN : Protection, security, stability, physical strenght for someone who is weak etc.
    For this example how many times I need to say the mantra and keep the mudra ?

    All the best
    Olivier

  27. Michael Goddard

    Hello Olivier, Thank you for the detailed question about the deity aspect of the Kuji-kiri and the deities connected with them….
    There are many paths to using the deities, the way you mentioned; “see myself as the deity..” is one of them. You can also begin with San Jiao, Kuji-kiri and then sit comfortably. Begin to chant the long mantra for the deity you wish to gain insight and knowledge from.
    How long does this take? How well do you focus? Lets just say that you chant for 10 minutes, or until you feel that energy, that presence, is in the same space that you are.
    In your mind`s eye, stand in front of the deity, notice in detail its appearance, how it “feels” to stand before them…. Then, step into the deity and let yourself expand out in all directions. At this point the deity begins to communicate with your conscious awareness without the filter / interference of the ego, opinions or even the personality. Pure, direct experience of the deity. Stay in this space as long as you like. When you “come back” to your physical body, take notes on what you experienced and share them here.

    Once you have this “personal, direct experience” of the deity, it is an easy matter to “send” this energy to others. Begin a distance healing with San Jiao, Kuji-Kiri and then cut the Mikkyo grid over the person`s name or picture. Allow the energy of the Deity to pour through you and into the person receiving the remote healing. Seal the healing in with something like Chokurei.

    The stronger your connection with the Deity through the above mentioned meditation, the stronger and faster your remote healing will work. Repeat as you feel necessary and remember, the healing that we send out heals us and the world too.

    Thanks again Olivier!

    Hello Michael, do you incorporate the use of Makka Ho with your teachings, as a means of further opening Meridian lines?
    Thanks
    Matthew

    • Michael Goddard

      Hello Matthew,
      Thank you for your question, for our other readers, Makka Ho is;

      “…. exercises used as a self healing technique by allowing the practitioner both sedate and tonify the meridians through specific stretches that were developed to improve the flow of Qi. There is a stretch for each pair of meridians and, as they are based on the Traditional Chinese Medicine, they should be done in the sequence shown (i.e. Metal, Earth, Primary Fire, Water, Secondary Fire, and Wood).”

      I will answer this fully in the main part of the blog, because I can bring in pictures of the meridians there, which I cannot do in this answer-text-box…. please see the blog above….

  31. Olivier

    Hi Michael,
    Do you know if Mikkyo allow the possibility to do external chi healing like some healing qi gong ? As we use San Jiao it should be possible to store great amount of yuan chi and refine it in order to be able to share it but I’m not an expert into this area so if you have any advice on external chi transmission it will be a great addition as I think that is very important for us to help other being around us with Mikkyo.
    Some Qi Gong master use their own chi so they need to train themselves during many years and have to recharge their chi after each healing session, but I have seen few other who seems to have access very easily to limitless high spiritual chi to do their session and dont need to recharge their physical chi. I dont know if this question is outside of the Mikkyo area but I’m very interested by this healing process. As Mikkyo has deep japan influence, perhaps the answer is to use Reiki but again it is very difficult to find a true lineage with real and strong ability.
    Much Love
    Olivier

    • Michael Goddard

      Hello Olivier,
      Thank you for the question, sorry for the late reply….
      At this time we are talking about Makka Ho, a series of physical exercises that “work” the meridians in sequence. Doing physical exercises like Tibetian Elemental Chi Kung, Makka Ho, or the 5 Tibetian exercises help force chi through the meridians which help with any energy transmission. When your nerves, meridians and chakras are cleared and energized, it is easier for your (or high spiritual chi) to pass through them.
      In Reiki, we get the mind out of the way and let the “high spiritual chi” energy of the symbol flow through us. In my opinion, this way does not deplete the person, because the healer is not using their personal chi to accomplish the transmission.
      As far as “storing chi” after San Jiao, we always bring the energy back to the lower Dan Tien at the end of the San Jiao session, as that is what the lower Dan Tien is designed for…
      We will have more posted soon about the physical exercises to strengthen the body and it`s systems….

  32. Matthew Anderson

    Does anyone have a Particular Mudra that they find more challenging to hold? For me it is the Toh position. Having large hands can make this tricky, but through time and dedication I know this will become easier.
    Peace and love all

      Hello Matthew,

      In my experience teaching classes here in Berlin, the Toh mudra is the one of the set that challenges most people… Keep up the finger yoga and your flexibility will increase..

    Hello Michael,

    I just finished your second Mikkyo course, really great stuff, thanks.
    I remember you saying that if anyone had other ideas for Mikkyo use
    or interests then let you know. Well I have several ideas/ Questions.

    I was wondering if you could say something about the vajra & Bell and
    their use and also the Taizokai & Kongokai Mandals and their use.

    I have two copies of them, and also two large books from India which
    describe them but not the usage.

    Also I would be interested in Mikkyo for personal power, not in a sense
    of gaining power but of building the bodies immune system/ health/ luck etc.

    I hope I don´t overload you with my questions but these have been in my
    head for years till I found someone to ask them….

    Thanks

    Antony

    Hello Antony, Thank you very much for your question!

    What a coincidence, that you ask about Sacred Art, and this week I am finishing my on-line course on
    DIY Orgonite Energetic Art Workshop.
    In the course, I start with my inspiration, sacred art from the mountain temples in Japan. I will continue this answer in the main-post so that I can post photos of the Taizokai & Kongokai mandalas that we are talking about…..

    See you in the main blog!

    Regards, Michael

  37. Michael Goddard

    I received an email from a person from Slovenia interested in the 387 mudras. He wanted to know if we teach all 387 mudras here at Energiebewegung.

    The short answer is no.
    The longer answer involves the nine mudras we use in Kuji-kiri. Since before we are born, we humans store trauma in the bodies tissues. Running energy through the meridians, holding the mudra and chanting help to clear these blockages out of the bodily tissues. As we get clearer, our inner dialogue decreases. The clearer we get, the more we are able to learn from the energy it’s self.
    SO, can one collect 387 mudras? Sure. I had books filled with specialty mudras handed down by Sifu Matsuo… I would suggest that one would benefit more from getting clear by using the nine mudras & mantras from Mikkyo 1… When you fully understand how to move the energy and how the nine form a solid base to build on, then go play with all the other mudras… just a suggestion.

    I am moving another question from email to the blog…
    Question; “Hello. I am a reiki practitioner and I’m hoping I came upon a technique through your site to open all of the eight extraordinary meridians.
    I wanted to know where the original source (the book) of those Kuji-In mudras and their corresponding meridians comes from and where I can learn it? Thanks.”

    Thanks for the question. As mentioned in the post above, the nine mudras & mantras of Mikkyo 1 provide a clearing of the meridians & chakras. They also provide a stronger energetic body which offers protection from lower, negative energies. I am sure you did not mean that you want to walk around “energetically wide open” all the time.
    The original source for the Kuji-in Mudras & meridians is the Ten Chi Shiki lineage as handed down by Sifu Christopher Matsuo in the Shingon Temple, Honolulu. The source for the 8 extra meridians is an excellent e-text by Peter Deadman; “A Manual of Accupunture.” I run these meridians in sequence, while stand in tree stance. Try it for 108 days and let me know your results.

    I am a left handed. Should I draw the mirrored grid with the left hand?

    • Michael Goddard

      Hello Jox, thanks for the question.
      You will still cut the Mikkyo Grid the same way, all that changes is the hand your are cutting the Grid with.
      Of course you would use your power hand for the work. That will be the hand you project strongest with.

      Warm Regards, Michael

    Here is a couple of questions from a Student who asked by Email…..27 May, 2018
    “The first question relates to Kuji-Kiri again. Is it possible to modify it for the specific purpose of opening the microcosmic orbit (the governor and conception vessel)? I’m not exactly looking for an entire new system but more of a simple, practical and effective way to add the microcosmic orbit to my reiki practice.

    Secondly, does Shingon, Shugendo or Mikkyo have a direct practice for dream yoga and yoga nidra?”

    Q1- The mudra and mantra for Rin relate to the root chakra and during the meditation for the Kuji-kiri taught in the Mikkyo 1 class, we run energy through the microcosmic orbit during the holding of the Rin mudra and chanting of the mantra, Rin. Running the energy from the root chakra up the back (outside of the spine) over the crown and down the front of the body clears and energizes the microcosmic orbit. Running the energy in the reverse direction leads to enlightenment. Using the meridian clearing of the Rin mudra and mantra is a good preparation for Reiki. Doing the entire set of Kuji-kiri is even better.

    Q2- Doing San Jiao before sleep will help with dream yoga and yoga nidra. Filling the body with light from the source while “awake” helps one keep in contact with the light that makes up all things, even the dream time experience.

    I hope this answers your questions.

    Hello Michael,
    I have been away for some time and just ordered all of your udemy courses. In this message I have few questions again for Mikkyo 1 :
    1/How do use mantra given into the course during the mikkyo mudra meditation ? Do you repeat them mentally 108 times or so, do you add some visualization during the mudra posture ? What I do personally is to hold each mudra in sequence from first to nine during 5mn so the whole is 45mn during each mudra I do the visualization given by you about chakra and meridians then I say the name of the mudra until I feel activation done. Here I need your advice because I dont really know if I’m right or wrong.
    2/You put emphasis on the clearing and purification aspect that is great because all the stuck energies are released through this way from within and without then replaced by much higher vibration. What I need to know is how to use the nine mudra to deepen my daily meditation toward spiritual unfoldment, some master use them especially for this task so I ask you here how to do or which process I need to follow ? What I do in my case is to add few step into the daily practice as follow : I know that each mudra work with the meridian ending point of the hands. So I put the tongue on the roof of the mouth It connects the governing vessel and conception vessel meridians forming a closed loop. Then I do deep breathing during few minutes and still holding the tongue on the rooth I do the mudra in sequence as I have said before.
    Thanks

    Hello Olivier!
    Thank you so much for your interest in Mikkyo and your questions. I especially appreciate and respect that your questions are in English, since I know that is not your first language.
    For Q1- When I first started out, I would hold the mudras and chant the mantras for 5 min for each one, visualizing and FEELING the energy flowing through the specific meridians. And you are correct, it takes at least 45 minutes. I say “at least 45 minutes” because I would sit in silence after the rounds of chanting and listen to the energy….
    A person can also chant the set 108 times. This has special power especially when done over 108 days. Try it and see.
    As mentioned in the Udemy course, each group that used Mikkyo used it in a different way, or to say it another way, there is no wrong way to use Mikkyo (unless you are projecting your energy to hurt others.) As far as our peaceful uses are concerned, there is no “wrong” way to clear and energize your systems. Find what works best and follow your guidance. I provide the “beginners shoes.” It is up to the student to put them on and try.
    Q2- The tongue on the roof of the mouth closes an energetic circuit in the body and enhances the microcosmic orbit making the energy flow easier.

    For an “extra step” in your daily meditation, do the Mikkyo set any way you feel guided to. Then, when you (your meridians & chakras) are fully energized and clear…. Take this “body of light” and place your awareness in the place of the observer….
    “You” disappear. By “you” I mean the ego-mind. Shift your awareness, the point from which you view everything from, to the observer. Done over time, this will allow the smooth flow of Universal energy through your “life.” Life becomes effortless and desires fall away.
    You are invited to use this aspect of Mikkyo to allow enlightenment to open itself to you, or perhaps more correctly stated, the perfect energy that you are to become your waking awareness.
    More later,
    Much peace and love,
    Michael
