The 5 Tibetan Rites for Youth and Vitality
“An Ancient Secret of the Fountain of Youth,” by Peter Kelder is a book about Colonel Bradford , a 40 year old man who had aged beyond his 40 years. He used a cane, his posture was bent and he had the look of a sixty-year-old man.
Then he travels to a monastery in Tibet for a few months where he regains his youth, vitality and health. On his return, he has the look, energy and vitality of a 30-year-old man!
WHAT DID HE LEARN?
What he learned from the monks in Tibet is that the body has seven chakras or energy centers. They correspond with the endocrine system and are important for health and vitality.
The chakras are spinning vortices of energy invisible to the eye. There is one located:
• at the base of the spine,
• lower abdomen,
• above the navel and below the chest
• center of the chest
• center if the forehead
• crown of the head
In a healthy body these vortices spin rapidly, but If any one of the seven are blocked, it can lead to aging and ill health. The spinning extends outward from the flesh in a healthy person, but in someone who is old or sick it barely reaches the surface..
Colonel Bradford learned form the monks that the quickest way to regain youth and vitality is to start these energy centers (chakras) spinning normally again with 5 simple exercises called the 5 Tibetan Rites.
The 5 Tibetan Rites
This is a simple exercise, and something kids do naturally. It speeds up the vortices.
All you do is stand erect with your hands out- stretched horizontal to the floor. With out wandering form the spot you are in spin left to right. It’s important that you spin clockwise. Spin about 12 turns.
Tibetan Rite #2
This also stimulates the vortices. Do this after Tibetan rite #1.
Lie flat on the floor face up on a padded carpet or surface. Once you are flat on your back, fully extend your arms along your sides and place your palms against the floor, keeping your fingers close together, then raise your head off the floor, tucking your chin against your chest, as you do this lift your legs knees straight into a vertical position. If possible let your legs extend back over your body, toward your head, but do not let your knees bend.
Then slowly lower both your head and legs, knees straight to the floor, allow your muscles to relax, and then repeat 3-21 times. Establish a breathing pattern, breath in as you lift your legs, breathe out as you lower. If at first you need to bend your knees that’s ok.
Tibetan Rite #3
Do this one right after the second Tibetan rite.
Kneel on the floor with both knees bent and the trunk of your body erect. Your arms should be at your sides against your thigh muscles.
Now incline your head and neck forward tucking your chin against your chest then gently move your head and neck backward as far as they will go. At the same time lean backward, arching the spine. As you arch, brace your arms and hands against your thighs for support. After arching, return to the original position.
Tibetan Rite #4
Do this after Tibetan rite #3.
Sit on the floor with your legs straight out in front of you, feet apart about the width of your shoulders. With the trunk of your body erect, place the palms of your hands and the floor alongside your buttocks, fingers pointing toward your toes. Tuck your chin forward against your chest, and let your head sink backward as far as it will go. At the same time raise your body so that your knees bend while your arms remain straight. The trunk of your body will be in a straight line with your upper legs horizontal to the floor. Both arms and lower legs will be straight up and down perpendicular to the floor. Return to the original sitting position and repeat.
Don’t worry about how many you can do in the beginning, just do the best you can in the beginning.
Lie face down, palms to the floor; feet flexed toes down to the floor.
Throughout this Tibetan rite, the hands and feet should be kept straight. Start with your arms perpendicular to the floor, and the spine arched, so that the body is in a sagging position. Now, throw the head back as far as possible. Then, bending at the hips, bring the body up into an inverted ‘V’. At the same time, bring the chin forward, tucking it against the chest.
Breathe in deeply as you raise the body, breathe out fully as you lower it.
Practice these 5 Tibetan rites at least once daily to give yourself the gift of a lifetime of health and vitality .
