It is about Energy Circulation
Robin: What is Mustang Tuna Technique?
John: It is a technique for performing deep breathing. As practitioners of life cultivation, we use the technique to increase our air (and thus oxygen) intake. As a collateral benefit, it also increases our energy circulation. Thus it is very beneficial for people who are deficient in energy circulation and blood circulation.
Mark: You are going to tell us how to circulate our energy.
John: Yes, without circulation, it is like we have a full tank of gasoline, and we did not start the motor. Does it do us any good?
Mark: Let us cut to the chase.
John: I practice energy circulation at the same time that I do deep breathing. I lay on my bed, flat, face up. I exhale as much as I can, slowly and calmly.
There are several forms of deep breathing. The bellows-style is the most common form and is used by most common people and it follows our normal breathing style. Our breathing action is very similar to how a bellow performs. We simply take in as much air as we can to our lungs through our nose, and then we breathe out the air through the nose, emptying out the air in our lungs.
However, as practitioners of Mustang Life Cultivation, we adopt Mustang Tuna Technique instead of the bellows-type of deep breathing for some very obvious benefits.
Robin: What good does Mustang Tuna Technique do?
John: It helps with our energy circulation, especially if we perform it immediately when we wake up. We will feel that our body warms up, our stomach groans, and air comes out from our anal. It all signals that energy has started to circulate, and your body is waking up with the exercise.
Mark: I think an early morning walk beats your practice.
John: I agree with you except the Mustang Tuna Technique will strengthen my small back and kidneys. I used to have back pain. The back pain goes away after I practice the exercise. Walking is a good exercise for waking up the body too. My deep breathing exercise is for those people who detest walking aimlessly around the park or walking around the blocks. I also practice the soft exercise when I am tired of working in front of the computer. It usually revitalizes my body.
Robin: How long do you do the exercise?
John: I just do it until I feel comfortable.
Mustang Tuna Technique Stage One
John: For beginners, it is best to practice Mustang Tuna Technique in stages.
Robin: How many stages are there?
John: The first stage is simply to practice exhaling and inhaling.
I will do the exercise in bed, flat, and face up. You may buy a yoga mattress and do it anywhere. However, it is much better to do the exercise where there is fresh air instead of polluted air.
First I exhale the air through the nose slowly and calmly, thinking of nothing but the breathing. If you think of anything else such as buying your groceries, you must pull back from the irrelevant thinking. The most standard practice is to use your eyes to look at your nose, and use your nose to look at your heart. Then you will concentrate on nothing but your breathing.
I then inhale with the air going to the lower abdomen, the diaphragm, counting from one to nine. When I take in the air, it comes in like spurts of cloud. When I count from one to nine, I take in nine spurts of air.
At the end of nine, I slow down and swallow my own saliva. Then I exhale slowly and smoothly without counting. At the same time, the inner energy should be flowing to my feet. That ends one deep breathing exercise.
When I exhale, I let the air go out through the mouth, not the nose. I curl my tongue to the top of the upper palate of my mouth and then I breathe out slowly.
Mark: Why do you breathe out from your mouth instead of through your nose, which is what people normally do?
Robin: When you breathe out, do you do it evenly or do you do it in spurts?
Mark: Do you breathe out quietly or loudly?
John: I make sure I empty out as much air as I can do it comfortably. The amount of air I can take in is in direct proportion to the amount of air I get out.
Robin: How much is enough?
John: When I inhale. I take in air through the nose, not the mouth. I take in air in spurts because I can take in more air this way. I let the air go to the diaphragm instead of just filling out my lungs for the same reason.
Have you ever seen a monk with buddha pearls? His pearls are in multiple nines and he uses them to count when he is doing his tuna technique.
Robin: Should the length of time taking in and letting out the air be the same?
John: This is Stage One of Mustang Tuna Technique designed for strengthening our Energy Circulation for rejuvenation of our body.
