Body Cultivation Blueprint

马晓山

Although our mind and spirit is supreme to our body, without a body as a container, our mind and spirit has no home to go to. Therefore, we have to do body cultivation to keep our body young and healthy in order for our spirit to soar.

Mustang Tuna Technique will give us a new and fundamental block for a healthy body. Then we depend on Mustang Tuina Technique to keep our body young. Then we use Mustang Shenzhan Technique to keep our body fit. We even have a technique that helps us to rejuvenate our body so that we will be young forever.

We need food as a source of nutrients. Nutrients will give us a strong vital energy, which in turn will lead to a strong spirit. Mustang Dietary Technique offers several ways for us to get the right nutrients the right way at the right time.

As practitioners of life cultivation, we generally emphasize on two ways to do our body cultivation. One, they include the right foods to yield the right nutrients for body nourishment. Two, they include the right stretching exercises to keep our body fit.

马晓山

Foods

As practitioners of life cultivation, we know that according to the principle of mutuality, clean food and dirty food will attract each other and combine with each other. Therefore, when we eat new and fresh food, they naturally will be combined with old and dirty food that are already inside the body. Hence, we must make an effort for them to be excreted from the body as body waste as soon as possible. That is, poop when necessary. Do not wait.

There are two sources of old and dirty food. First, we may have inadvertently taken in food that is old and dirty in the first place. Second, we may have taken in too much food. Our body cannot digest and absorb the excess food, thus they become old and dirty food that needs to be excreted from the body.

Thus we should not eat or drink excessively. We should not eat when we are not hungry. We should not overeat when our body weight has increased. We should not overeat when our waistline keeps on increasing. We should not overeat when we cannot sleep well.

If we control the amount of food that we eat daily, we will have a healthier body. We will have gained the upper hand in our struggle against the aging process. This is very important in our life cultivation practice. This is also what we can do easily.

We practice the Mustang Dietary Technique on a daily basis. We focus on

  • Food and body constitution
  • Food and compatibility
  • Food for the old-aged
  • Food and high blood pressure
  • Food and diabetes
  • Food and inflammation
  • Food and sexual power
  • Food and seasonal changes
  • More

Fitness Exercise

The practice of Mustang Tuna Technique will set up our breathing in the most efficient way and increase our supply of oxygen which will improve our blood and vital energy.

The practice of Mustang Shenzhan Technique will activate and coordinate our body parts. It will repair our internal organs.

The practice of Mustang Tuina Technique will help with the flow of energy, making us healthy.

As practitioners of life cultivation, we know that vigorous exercise will increase our heart beats. This in itself may not be a good thing for old-aged people although it does improve our vital energy circulation. Thus we tend to do walking which will improve our latent energy. Latent energy is the mother of vital energy circulation. Vital energy flow is a manifestation of latent energy.

When we are short on vital energy, we should not try to add energy blindly. Otherwise, it may hurt our body health.

We are aware of two limitations on exercise. We should not exercise when we are in a low energy state. Also, we should not exercise in a dirty environment.

We will perform exercise to achieve two goals. One is to increase the speed of blood and vital energy circulation, and to improve the excretion of wastes from the body. The other is to open up skin pores to absorb vital energy essence from Nature.

When we are short of energy, we should first try to increase our blood. Blood is the mother of energy. Imagine a human body being a ceramic urn. If we keep on burning the dry urn on a stove, it will eventually crack. Similarly, internal organs will be hurt.

On the other hand, if the shortage of energy is due to a blocked circulation, then we should try to increase the speed of vital energy circulation. Eventually we will achieve the goal of adding blood and energy together.

Mustang Shenzhan Technique Modalities

马晓山

Mustang Shenzhan Technique is a set of stretching exercises specifically designed for life cultivation practitioners like us. It is mainly for the maintenance and repair of our body. It is highly recommended that it be used in conjunction with other Mustang Cultivation Techniques.

What are the best stretching exercises for us to improve daily life?

As practitioners of life cultivation, we usually establish a stretching exercise routine to practice on a daily basis for the general health of our physical body. In order to do it right, we should first understand our body condition and plan accordingly.

First, we may need stretching exercises for the repair and maintenance of our physical body. We may also need stretching exercises for our peace of mind. There are different stretching exercises to accomplish these two different objectives, so we must choose wisely. Of course, many people may need stretching exercises for both purposes.

In the case of choosing stretching exercises for our physical health, we would first ask ourselves whether there are internal organs such as stomach and liver that we are concerned about, or is it our joints, muscles or eyesight. There are different stretching exercises for us to choose from.

For example, if we are concerned about our liver, we may choose the stretching exercise that involves clapping our palms firmly and evenly for twenty five minutes.

Second, we may need to do stretching exercises for our peace of mind, or to get rid of undesirable state of emotions such as grief and sorrow. There are different stretching exercises for us to choose from.

There are also stretching exercises that will firm up a completely normal and healthy body that will lay a solid foundation for the health of the whole body for a long time in the future. A healthy person who performs such stretching routines will benefit for many years of a healthy body in the future.

Therefore, it is important for us to analyse our situation and choose the appropriate stretching exercises for the cost and benefits ratio that is the lowest. We are then more likely to perform the routines. If we waste our time and energy doing the least beneficial exercise, we are more likely to consider it a waste of time and give up prematurely. It is a sad thing to do that.

Modalities of Mustang Shenzhan Technique

We have collected more than twenty modalities for the Mustang Shenzhan Technique. We will present five of them here. They are Modality Qiyang, Modality Baduanjin, Modality Zhanzhuang, Modality Shuaishou, and Modality Taiji. The remaining modalities will be presented further along the TAO.

Modality Qiyang

We typically practice it when we first wake up at dawn. We practice it to wake up our body from deep sleep.

It is especially useful for us to regenerate our five senses. We will have an overall feeling of seeing better, hearing better, smelling better, tasting better, and touching better. We will feel energetic to tackle the day ahead of us.

Modality Baduanjin

We typically practice it when we have a long period of time for stretching exercise. We will choose to do it in the evening if time permits.

Baduanjin helps us to loosen up our whole body. It will increase our blood and vital energy circulation. It will help in the maintenance and repair of our body. It will help to repair our internal organs.

Modality Zhanzhuang

We typically practice it when we have a long period of time for this exercise. We will choose to do it in the evening if time permits.

Zhanzhuang is the foundation that helps us to learn kung fu (martial arts). It trains us in reflex actions especially when we are under attack. It trains us to transmit forces to our advantage. It helps to train our mind to focus and react the right way.

Modality Shuaishou

We typically practice it when we have sat down for too long in front of a computer or television set. We will stand up and do this exercise to correct the altered posture.

It will help with our blood and vital energy circulation so that we will not be tired.

Modality Taiji

We typically practice it when we have a long period of time for stretching exercise. We will choose to do it in the evening if time permits.

Taiji helps us to loosen up our whole body. It will increase our blood and vital energy circulation. It will help in the maintenance and repair of our body. It will help to repair our internal organs.

We typically choose between Modality Baduanjin and Taiji for this purpose. However, it takes longer to learn and practice Taiji compared with Baduanjin. Moreover, Taiji can be used in defense when confronting an unexpected physical attack.

Foods for Diabetes

马晓山

As practitioners of life cultivation, some of us have Type 1 diabetes, some of us have Type 2 diabetes, and some of us have Prediabetes. As practitioners of life cultivation, we do not view diabetes as a disease. Rather, we look upon it as a health condition that affects how our body turns food into energy.

We believe that this health condition can be improved by various methods, chief among them is what food we take and how much we take it. Let us first look at the food that will improve the health condition of diabetes.

马晓山

01 Take magnesium

Magnesium is one of the essential minerals for human health, and each adult needs to take in 350 mg of magnesium per day. If the human body is deficient in magnesium (an adult with a body weight of 70 kg contains about 20-28 grams of magnesium in the body), its insulin sensitivity will decrease, resulting in hyperinsulinemia and glucose metabolism disorders, which will induce diabetes.

Water and food are the main sources of magnesium for humans, and grains and vegetables provide two-thirds of the daily intake of magnesium. Among foods, green vegetables and fruits have the highest magnesium content. Foods such as bean sprouts, buckwheat, corn, mushrooms, fennel, green peppers, bananas, fruits, etc. are magnesium-rich foods. Therefore, in the diet of diabetics, it is necessary to arrange foods rich in magnesium.

Diabetic people eat so much, why are they still deficient in magnesium? There are two main reasons. First, no matter how much food a diabetes takes, if the food is not magnesium-rich, he will be deficient in magnesium. Second, the person is engaged in binge drinking (excessive drinking). He drinks too much coffee and tea, and he eats too much salty foods, which will greatly reduce the body’s magnesium, causing magnesium deficiency. Therefore, a diabetes must follow specific meal plans with a balanced diet, and to prevent the loss of magnesium.

02 Control Food Intake

If a person with diabetes does not control his intake of food and drink, his health condition will worsen everyday, and a recovery will be beyond his reach. Here we present a meal plan for a person with diabetes for reference purposes.

01 Cereals (rice, flour, corn, adzuki bean, mung bean, soybean) 200-500 grams per day.

02 Meat (beef, pork, chicken, fish, shrimp, soy products) 150-200 grams per day.

03 Vegetables 500 grams per day.

04 Fruits 250-500 grams per day.

05 Milk 200 grams per day.

06 Oil (vegetable) 2 tablespoons per day

This is the limit of each type of food that a person with diabetes should take everyday. Do not eat over this limit. Do not eat excessively.

马晓山
马晓山

03 Follow a balanced and nutritious diet

Many people with diabetes rely on taboos to avoid high blood sugar. They dare not eat enough and endure hunger. This action can easily lead to nutritional imbalances, resulting in decreased immunity, accelerated aging of the human body, and increased complications.

It is therefore important for people with diabetes to establish a correct nutritional diet concept to ensure the supply of the seven major nutrients. It is necessary to pay more attention to the intake of cellulose and the trace element magnesium. To put it simply, eat what they should eat, and refuse to eat what they shouldn’t.

Here we offer a couple of meal plans for reference.

Do not Drown in your Sorrow

马晓山

When you are sad, or in sorrow, your energy will ebb, leading to dysfunctional lungs, which in turn leads to depression, which in turn will hurt the lungs and the breathing system. Thus, deep sorrow or grief is harmful to your health, and you will age faster.

Grief will shorten the life of a person, especially the loss of a loved one. Thus, you should try to get rid of all sorrows and maintain your youth from now on.

You may wonder how you can get rid of all sorrows when you are surrounded by them day in and day out. There is a saying. We live to be a hundred years old, but we harbor sorrows for a thousand years. Thus, how can we escape the harm of deep grief?

马晓山

01 Dealing with grief

Great grief or deep sorrow is a big killer. Let us look at a very common situation.

Mary loved John very much. John died young. Mary was in grief. She lives in deep sorrow since the death of John. Her heart is full of so much sorrow that she has no heart for anything else.

Mark wants to liberate Mary from her sorrow. This is his strategy. Mark knew Mary was in grief because of the death of John. He talked to Mary about John. He asked Mary to tell him all the stories about John, how they fell in love, what they had done together, and so on.

Eventually Mary told Mark all the stories about John. Mark kept on listening to Mary talking about John until one day Mary did not want to talk about John anymore because there was nothing left to talk about.

Mary admitted that John occupied her mind before the story-telling to the point that her mind was full of John, and she could not breath. Now that she had talked about John freely and openly, her mind was now void of John when she thought about him.

Mark has successfully led Mary out of her grief about the death of John. Mary was now capable of loving another man once more.

This is just one episode for the removal of grief. There are many other ways.

Mustang Tuina Technique Eliminates Fatigue

马晓山

As practitioners of life cultivation, we tuina (aka massage) our fingers, palm, hand, and wrist to do maintenance and repair of our body. There is no special equipment needed. There is no new knowledge to be learned. It is easy to practice. We can do it while watching television programs.

We know that our hands are related to internal organs, especially the liver. Thus, the hand exercise will first benefit our liver and other related organs.

There are many tuina exercises that are related to our hands. We will discuss some of them here.

马晓山

01 Hand exercises to help with fatigue

01 Extend your hands in front of you with palms up. Hit the edge of your palms against each other forcefully thirty six times.

02 Flip your hands so that your palms are now facing down. Bend your thumbs and hit the edge of your palms against each other forcefully thirty six times.

03 Curl the fingers of your left hand into a fist. Hit the center of the open palm of your right hand forcefully thirty six times. Now change hands. Hit the center of the open palm of your left hand forcefully thirty six times.

04 Now use your left fist to hit the back of the palm of your right hand forcefully thirty six times. Now change hands. Hit the back of the palm of your left hand forcefully thirty six times.

05 Now hit your fist against each other horizontally and forcefully for thirty six times.

06 Now hit your left fist against your right fist vertically and forcefully for thirty six times. Now change hands. Hit your right fist against your left fist vertically and forcefully thirty six times.

07 Now extend your hands in front of you with one palm up and one palm down. Bend your thumbs and hit the edge of your palms against each other forcefully thirty six times. Now exchange hands and repeat thirty six times.

08 Cover your eyes with your hands so that you are in the dark. Roll your eyeballs clockwise thirty six times, and then counter-clockwise thirty six times.

09 Use your hands to pull your earlobe thirty six times.

Do we make you confused now? Good. Do this exercise two to three times a day.

This exercise will reduce your fatigue. It will increase your blood and energy circulation. It will protect your eyes against early degeneration. It will relieve you from headache. It will reduce your chance of having a cold. It will refresh your energy. What more do you want just by doing some hand exercises?

02 Hand exercise to eliminate fatigue

01 Extend the fingers of your hands up and facing each other.

02 Clap your hands forcefully for five to ten minutes, or until your palm is red.

03 Do it early in the morning, or when you feel tired.

This exercise will increase blood circulation. It will smooth the path of energy circulation. It will restore your body to health. It will reduce fatigue.

马晓山

03 Palm acupressure to reduce fatigue

As practitioners of life cultivation, we have discussed foot massage before. Now we will discuss hand massage. Just like foot massage, our hand has many acupressure points that are related to various organs. The stimulation of the acupressure points will activate our body functions.

You locate the appropriate acupressure point, and apply force to each of them. You use your fingers to apply the pressure as much as you can. You will usually feel pain while you are doing this. Do not give up. Keep the pressure on for about three minutes. You do it point by point.

However, as a beginner, do not try to locate the exact pressure points. It is not necessary. Just apply pressure to the approximate areas. You will feel pain if you apply pressure to the correct points.

Improve Longevity with Mustang Tuna Technique

马晓山

The Mustang Tuna Technique is a very special form of deep breathing. In customary deep breathing, we use our lungs to breathe, and we take in more oxygen by expanding our lung capacity. Thus, in customary deep breathing, we breathe like bellows.

A bellows is a device with an airbag that emits a stream of air when squeezed together with two handles, used for blowing air into a fire. Although it will help us to take in more air, it also requires us to use more of our natural energy to do it.

With deep breathing in a bellows-style, our breath will be quick, our heart beat will be fast, our metabolism rate will increase, and our longevity will be shortened.

However, as practitioners of life cultivation, we try to preserve our natural energy, so we tend to employ the Mustang Tuna Technique for deep breathing instead.

Using the Mustang Tuna Technique in deep breathing, we make use of our diaphragm to breathe. We take in more oxygen by pushing our diaphragm down without expanding the lungs. First we inhale slowly, moving the air into the diaphragm area. Then we exhale slowly, returning the diaphragm to its normal position.

Here is a brief description of the Mustang Tuna Technique.

马晓山

The Practice

Lie on your bed, or use a meditation pad and lie on the floor.

Focus your attention on your breath. Exhale slowly to empty your lungs as much as you can. Briefly pause.

Inhale while counting: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine. While you are counting, you inhale air with each count. Now you take in air with nine spurts. Briefly pause.

Swallow hard your own saliva.

Now you exhale slowly in one stretch without counting.

We refer to this action of exhale-inhale as one breath. Remember this. This is very important in our discourse later on.

You inhale with your nose. You may exhale with your nose or mouth. As practitioners of the Mustang Tuna Technique, we will advise you to breathe with your mouth, with the tip of your tongue touching the upper palate of the mouth. There is a very good reason for this.

Group nine breaths as one cycle. How many cycles will you do in one exercise? How long does it take to do one cycle? Should you do the Mustang Tuna Technique lying on bed, sitting on a chair, or standing on the ground?

Quote: Inhale as if you are breaking a cocoon. Exhale as if you are pulling a thread.

What if you reverse the process? Instead of counting from one to nine while inhaling, you prefer to count while exhaling. Is it alright? How does it affect you?

The Comment

When inhaling, you should pay attention to your breathing. Count the breath mentally, listen to the breath with your ears, concentrate fully, and concentrate your mind, just like a hen brooding an egg. Start counting.

If there are distracting thoughts during the counting process, immediately withdraw the thoughts and start all over again, counting from one.

As practitioners of life cultivation, our goal is to gradually adjust our breathing to deep and long, even, slow, and soft.

By deep and long, we want our breathing not to be short, but continuous. We will slowly lengthen the time from inhale to exhale. We will also lengthen the time from one breath to the next breath. We do this according to our body condition. We do not force ourselves to achieve a certain goal in a certain time. Remember, each of us has a different body constitution. Slowly, we will feel our breathing penetrate deep inside our body, activating the vital energy circulation.

By breathing evenly, we want our breathing not to be slow and then fast, but at an even speed.

By breathing slowly, we do not want to breathe hastily as if we are in a hurry to accomplish something.

By breathing softly, we want to breathe gently, as if we are doing it intentionally, or unintentionally. Anyway, do not breathe by force.

As we practice, we will improve our breathing. Sooner or later we will be able to concentrate fully and our breathing will be more focused. When that happens, our mind will be free of distracting thoughts, or we have reached the level of tranquility.

When that happens, we may then increase the counting from one to nine, and then from one to nine again, or eighteen in total. Do not force yourself to do it. If you find yourself catching air when you do that, go back to the previous state and practice more.

Sooner or later, after much practice, we will be able to count from one to nine, then again one to nine, then again one to nine, or for a total of twenty seven counts, for one inhale. Thus we have attained Level One of the Mustang Tuna Technique. We have reached our goal of mind cultivation without distracting thoughts.

Once we have attained Level One of the Mustang Tuna Technique, we will be able to control our temper, emotions, personality, and worldly desires. Automatically, we will become a compassionate person.

Then we are ready to practice Level Two of the Mustang Tuna Technique to repair our organs or to remove our pain.

I am so happy I could have died

马晓山

People usually associate the Happy emotion as an emotion that is good for our health. People like to live happily ever after.

When we are in a happy mood, the energy associated with the heart will flow slowly and evenly, making us feel calm and less nervous. In normal circumstances, happiness will relax us and will aid in our circulation with a peaceful mind. What we have to watch out for is sudden happiness.

When happiness is sudden, our blood and energy circulation will come in bursts, and may be out of control. We will be unable to control our emotions, and sometimes we will even blank out our mind in order to protect ourselves, according to the rule of self-preservation.

Our good friend Fred died on a casino table in Las Vegas when he won big. He was less than fifty years old when he died. The cause of death was officially listed as a Heart Attack not Happiness. Many friends were very surprised and could not believe it when they heard the news. However, it was true. People could die from sudden Happiness.

As practitioners of life cultivation, we shun away from situations of Paramount Sorrow and Mountainous Happiness. Instead, we seek Calmness in Life.

We use the Mustang Tuna Technique in an emergency situation to control sudden Happiness from happening. We use the Mustang Jingzuo Technique to achieve a state of Calmness of Mind.

Mustang 8-brocade rejuvenates your body II

马晓山

The Mustang Shenzhan Technique is a series of stretching exercises for the maintenance and repair of our physical body. The Mustang 8-brocade Technique is just one of a suite of modalities of the Mustang Shenzhan Technique. It is a basic technique that is easy to learn and practice.

As practitioners of life cultivation, we engage in the Mustang 8-brocade Technique to rejuvenate our body. When we practice the technique on a daily basis, we will enhance our physical fitness and prevent illness. We will look and feel younger.

The Mustang 8-brocade Technique consists of eight styles or movements. In order to learn this technique properly, you start with the first movement. You memorize the instruction outlined here and then you visualize the movements and associated breathing method in your mind until you have it firmly in your mind.

While you are practicing, you do not refer to the instruction, or the pictures, or the video. You have to practice it from memory. You start to practice the movements and breathing, visualizing the movements in your mind. You focus on the movements by the eyes-nose-mind technique that you have learned before.

We have seen a housewife cooking a new recipe by watching a video on her mobile phone set on the kitchen counter top while she does her cooking. We are simply amazed by her action. Do not imitate this housewife while you learn any Mustang Shenzhen Technique.

This Mustang 8-brocade Technique is suitable for people of all ages. It is best to practice outdoors in the morning before breakfast. If you sweat after the exercise, take a shower, or swipe off the sweat with a towel before breakfast. Do not let your skin absorb the sweat back into your body again.

We group all eight movements here for convenience. When you learn and practice, learn and practice one by one. Learn one until you are well versed with it, and then go on to the next. Try to learn one movement a week. Do not try to learn and practice more than one or all at once.

As practitioners of life cultivation, most of us take the Mustang 8-brocade Technique as the cornerstone of our fitness program to restore us to a younger self.

Here is the second movement of the Mustang 8-brocade Technique. Enjoy.

02 Shoot the Condor

Movement

马晓山

The full name for the second movement or style is called Stretch the Bow Left and Right to Shoot the Condor. From this name, you can expect the movement to imitate the shooting of an eagle in the sky with a bow and arrow.

Here is the movement.

Stand upright. Spread your feet shoulder wide. Your arms hang naturally at the sides.

Take a big step forward with your left foot with your knee slightly bent, so your body is squatting. Cross your arms on your chest with your right arm outside, and your left arm inside.

Stretch out your left arm and follow it with your eyes. While you are looking at it, clench your left hand with the index finger pointing upwards and straighten your thumb. Now your index finger and your thumb are wide open forming a V. The other three fingers are curled into your palm and resting there. It is very similar to you imitating shooting a gun, except here the index finger is pointing upward instead.

To summarize it, you push and straighten your left arm out to the left. Turn your head to follow your left arm. Look at your left index finger.

At the same time, you clench your right hand into a fist. Extend your right arm flatly to the right, as if you are pulling the bow to shoot an arrow. Your hand should be at the same level of the center point of your rib cage. Refer to the picture.

Next, restore your action to its original position. You have now completed one-half of the movement, the left movement.

Now repeat the movements with your left and right interchanged. Now you have done one complete movement.

Repeat as many times as you feel comfortable. A beginner may start with eighteen times.

You should practice deep breathing at the same time. You should inhale when you stretch your arms and pull the bow, and exhale when you recover to the original position. Refer to the Mustang Tuna Technique for more information on doing deep breathing the correct and beneficial way.

Comment

马晓山

With this movement, the stance is a standard one. Both feet should be firmly on the ground. The knee is slightly bent. The chest should be straight and lifted. Adjust your stance if you are wobbling. Try to adjust your stance by paying attention to your chest position. You will soon improve with practice and with proper adjustment of your stance.

You may modify this stance by moving your right hand to the level of your belly instead of your chest, and modify your feet into two steps, front and back. Now you have a typical stance of a certain Gongfu Sect called Xingyimen. Read more about Stance in another article.

The key points to this movement are your palm and fingers, and how you twist and turn your wrist and how you spread and hold your fingers. Refer to the picture above. Another popular way to improve the condition of our wrist, hand, palm and fingers is to squeeze two iron balls in our palm. If you do not have iron balls, use two walnuts instead.

The hand, the palm, and the fingers are closely related to our lungs and liver. Thus this movement will strengthen our lungs. It may be beneficial for those recovering from covid-19. As practitioners of life cultivation, our group does not have enough data to confirm whether it helps.

This exercise forces you to exhale old air and inhale new air. Inhale as you have learned with the Mustang Tuna Technique. Your breath should be deep and long. You are not in a rush. You increase your supply of oxygen with this movement.

Can you use this movement as a defense move when you are under attack? Yes. With practice, of course.

This movement will make your fingers, wrist, and arms flexible. It will strengthen your breathing and blood circulation. It will help you to further correct the pathological condition caused by incorrect posture.

The Mustang 8-brocade Technique will eliminate fatigue. It will also strengthen and smooth your joints. Indirectly, it will help to maintain and repair your lungs and liver.

Killing you softly with Anger III

马晓山

There are five prime emotions that we will experience. They are anger, happiness, knotted thinking, anxiety or worry, and fear. Each emotion will affect our mind and our different internal organs and ultimately our health.

Anger will hurt our liver. Happiness will hurt our hearts. Knotted thinking will hurt our spleen. Anxiety will hurt our lungs. Fear will hurt our kidneys.

However, each organ is not independent. They are interrelated and the body is a whole. The suffering of one organ will affect other organs, and eventually the whole body will suffer. The heart, as the master organ, will also ultimately suffer.

Our heart is the master organ in our body. It is similar to a General in an Army, or the main controller of our body. Each type of emotion will eventually affect the function of our heart. Moreover, once our heart is injured, it will affect all other organs.

Thus it is paramount that we control our emotions so that they will not affect our body health. How? Let us see how we, as practitioners of life cultivation, will control our emotions for good health. We will talk about each emotion in turn. We have previously talked about Anger. We will continue to talk about Anger.

04 Anger Management

There are many ways to manage our Anger. As practitioners of life cultivation, we devote much effort to the management of Anger. We will outline some of the strategies here for discussion purposes. How you will actually manage your Anger, you will have to make your own plan. Yes, plan ahead for Anger Management.

马晓山

01 Avoid the situation

This is a strategy that is very easy to understand. Someone is going to be angry with you, diffuse it right away. You are going to be angry with someone, take a deep breath.

Say you have done something that your wife does not like. You are overly sweet to your beautiful secretary and buy her flowers on her birthday. A busy bee has been talking to your wife. You come home. You look at your wife and you know you have an angry situation.

What do you do? You diffuse the situation. How? There are many ways. Think about it. Write them down. Memorize them by heart. When the situation arises, you carry out the strategies smoothly as if you are a diplomatic pro.

When someone tries to make you angry, intentionally or unintentionally, you also try to diffuse the situation using the same procedure. This should be easier, right?

02 Use Inaction

Inaction is not only a strategy for Anger Management, it is a philosophy, It is a way of life for many of us life cultivation practitioners. What do we mean by inaction? Easy, do nothing.

Yes. Inaction will lead to nothing being accomplished. However, action in this world will disturb our mind, damage our intelligence, and totally destroy our spirit. If we hold the inaction in a corner of our mind, we will still look very young at the age of a hundred.

This is a very simple strategy, but can a person who is wealthy and powerful understand this?

马晓山
马晓山

03 Use Fate

Use Fate as a rationale in Anger Management. It is our Fate when something happens. We just have to accept it because it is our Fate. Then we will not be angry.

A young man said, “I do not believe in Fate. However, I still cannot escape the trouble that was imposed on me by Fate, no matter how I struggle. As they said in Buddhism, there is always a causal relationship between events.”

It is easy to say that a man can always conquer his Fate. However, the chance of doing that is slim. So, accept the situation meekly as it is your Fate.

04 Use Change

This rule is simple. We use a good emotion to counteract a harmful and bad emotion such as anger.

For example, when we are troubled, we visit our buddy and pour out all our troubles to him. Now we walk away happily, although he may be troubled, but that is his problem.

For many practitioners of life cultivation, especially women, they like to go shopping and make themselves happy when they are angry at a situation.

When you are angry, eat something you like. It is that easy! Cheer up.

Make a list of strategies that you can use and follow them.

马晓山
马晓山

05 Use Carefree

Zhu Ling stood at the edge of the forest, looking up at the mountain that is faraway.

She is willing to believe that there are terrestrial gods in this world, living in the mountains with white clouds, using the clouds as a quilt blanket. They would quench thirst with spring water from the Qinghe River, and treat hunger with delicious fruits. They would emit long howls on top of the trees, or play the violin by the waterfront.

Carefree life.

Now you do not need the hard-found youth, or the glory of wealth and power. They are to be discarded in exchange for a carefree life.

In the life of the gods, she admired the gods without care and without trouble. The Buddhist and Taoist worlds both urge a person to give up his worldly life. However, she can’t be as natural as the immortal gods living in the mountains as if nothing has ever happened.

06 Use Massage

As practitioners of life cultivation, we use many physical therapies such as Massage or Moxibustion to clear the stagnant liver and gallbladder and transform heat or inflammation.

For example, we may take traditional Chinese medicines with the effect of clearing away heat and purging liver fire.

More often, we use external methods such as massage, moxibustion, scraping, cupping, stretching exercises, etc. to clear the flow of liver energy.

Of course, we employ Mustang Dietary Technique, and Mustang Jingzuo Technique in our daily life for diet and mental conditioning too.

Touch the midline of your inner thigh from knee to ankle. It is the path where the liver energy flows. Most older people have a very hard tendon, and some nodules can be felt. This means that the liver energy flow will not be smooth. The corresponding outer side of the thigh is the path of energy flow of the gallbladder. Thus, we should massage the paths to smooth the flows. How?

The most convenient way to dredge the two paths of the liver and gallbladder energy flow is to tap, push and knead the paths. Where the pain is more acute, it is the blockage point. Push and knead those points more forcefully to smooth out the path.

In addition, moxibustion can also be used for deep dredging. We do not advise you to do this by yourself if you have no knowledge of life cultivation. However, you may learn it here. Then you go to a professional person to do it for yourself. You observe closely how he does it. Memorize it. Come home and do it yourself. Or, join Mustang Cultivation Club. A pro will guide you.

Light the moxa stick. Follow the path of the liver and gallbladder energy flow to find the hot spot. This method does not require you to memorize the acupoints. There is no need to find specific acupoints. You only need to feel the areas with swelling redness, heated pain, or pressured pain. Then you perform moxibustion on those areas. It can be performed without clinical experience, It is becoming more and more common in home health care.

马晓山
马晓山

07 Use Facial Scraping

Use facial scraping to relieve blood stasis and return beauty to your face and body.

After the age of thirty-five, women start to look burnt. Liver stagnation will only make the skin worse. The growth of chloasma will be obvious. Facial beauty scraping technique can make the blood and energy flow to the head and face smooth, improving skin aging, removing freckles and wrinkles.

Again, do not do it on yourself if you are new to life cultivation. Visit and learn from the pro. Then do it yourself once you master the technique.

08 Other techniques

There are too many techniques for Anger Management. We cannot list them all.

You may wonder why we emphasize liver stagnation and its removal while we are talking about Anger Management. That is because we believe that the Anger Emotion will result in liver stagnation. If we improve liver stagnation, we will help with the bad consequences of the Anger Emotion. Got it?

As practitioners of life cultivation, we will persist in dredging the energy flow paths to reduce the chance of blood and energy stasis in our life. Thus we will find many illnesses that sound scary to be relieved through our own efforts. It is necessary to seek medical treatment in time, but to learn life cultivation knowledge and practice will likely prevent many health conditions from developing into illnesses.

The most important point is to learn to adjust our mentality and ease our emotions. If we take a carefree pill on the one hand, and complain about life everyday, what is the use?

The simplest sentence. Force ourselves to be broadminded.

Killing you softly with Anger II

马晓山

There are five prime emotions that we will experience. They are anger, happiness, knotted thinking, anxiety or worry, and fear. Each emotion will affect our mind and our different internal organs and ultimately our health.

Anger will hurt our liver. Happiness will hurt our hearts. Knotted thinking will hurt our spleen. Anxiety will hurt our lungs. Fear will hurt our kidneys.

However, each organ is not independent. They are interrelated and the body is a whole. The suffering of one organ will affect other organs, and eventually the whole body will suffer. The heart, as the master organ, will also ultimately suffer.

Our heart is the master organ in our body. It is similar to a General in an Army, or the main controller of our body. Each type of emotion will eventually affect the function of our heart. Moreover, once our heart is injured, it will affect all other organs.

Thus it is paramount that we control our emotions so that they will not affect our body health. How? Let us see how we, as practitioners of life cultivation, will control our emotions for good health. We will talk about each emotion in turn. We have previously talked about Anger. We will continue to talk about Anger.

03 Consequences of Liver Stagnation

As we have previously discussed, Anger will result in Liver Stagnation. The vital energy flow associated with the Liver will become stagnant. That is, the energy flow will decrease. It will manifest in two states.

First, the vital energy flow will become stagnant in our body. In this state, we will become sad or unhappy. We will be easily depressed. This is a typical case of the vital energy flow associated with our liver becoming stagnant.

Second, there will come an exuberance of Liver Fire. When the vital energy flow associated with the Liver is stagnant for a long time, the liver will be inflamed or heated. In this state, we will have a quick temper, or bad temper. We become impatient, and find it hard to control our temper. It will show in our tongue. Our tongue will become red with a pink tip. We will have a bitter taste in our mouth. We may feel pain in our chest or the sides.

This is the first stage of development following the stagnation of vital energy flow associated with the liver. Stagnation leads to heat which leads to fire. The problem will become worse as time goes on. The following symptoms will appear.

马晓山

01 Liver fire invading the lungs

Once this happens, we will show coughing, cough of blood, dryness in the chest cavity, dryness in the nasal cavity, shortness of breath, hot flashes of the body, bone steaming and other symptoms. Since the lungs are associated with the skin, we may also show skin symptoms.

02 Liver fire invading the heart

The overheated liver may lead to signs of heart palpitations and pulse knots, heart pulsation, or even cardiac crisis in the extreme case.

马晓山

03 Liver fire invading the stomach and spleen

The spleen and stomach are bound to be restrained when the liver fire is too strong, resulting in stomach pain, dry mouth, and vomiting of sour water. For people who are stressed, reflux esophagitis is very common, which is caused by liver fire invading the stomach.

04 Liver fire invading the kidneys

Liver fire will show up as a deficiency of liver yin which will deplete kidney yin, leading to a deficiency of kidney essence, which will lead to symptoms such as backache, weak knees, dizziness, tinnitus and night sweats.

05 Liver fire invading other organs and tissues

People with insufficient liver yin and strong liver fire are prone to symptoms in the thyroid, breast, uterus, ovary, vulva, etc. These body parts are normally nourished by the vital energy flow associated with the liver. Once the flow is slowed down, these parts will be affected and show bad symptoms.

06 Liver fire affecting vital energy flow

The liver regulates vital energy flow of our body, harmonizing our life systems. Thus, once this vital function is affected, many parts of our body that are associated with the transportation of the vital energy are also affected.

In summary, the liver regulates the transportation function of vital energy flow of our body. Once the liver function is affected by Anger, many of our organs and body parts will be affected. Thus, it is best that we do not become angry.

Thus, we will discuss Anger Management next.

Thus it is paramount that we control our emotions so that they will not affect our body health. How? Let us see how we, as practitioners of life cultivation, will control our emotions for good health. We will talk about each emotion in turn. We will talk about Anger first.

01 Anger

马晓山

There are books on Anger Management, and you may want to read them. However, here we will tackle Anger from a different angle.

Anger will hurt our liver. When we are angry, the liver energy will flow backwards, usually affecting the stomach and the spleen, thus our body will show signs that the liver and spleen are in disharmony, or the liver and stomach are in pain, and other symptoms.

When we are angry, it will hurt our liver. The vital energy of the liver will flow backwards, causing the blood to flow in the opposite direction, leading to a reduction of blood and vital energy flow. We may show signs of breathlessness.
Our sides may be swollen or in pain. In some women, anger will lead to menstrual pain or a complete shut down.

With the slow down in blood and vital energy circulation, we will easily feel tired with a loss of appetite. In some cases, we may develop fever.

Try to observe people closely when they are in emotional distress. When a person is angry, what do you see in him? He is usually red-faced. Right? That is why we say Anger will cause blood to flow upwards. The angry person will show a red-face, but not red-feet. When a person is really very very angry, he may vomit blood, or even faint.

If you really hate a person and wish him ill, then you may make him angry with words. You do not need a knife to hurt another person. You can hurt him with words by making him angry.

02 Anger Situations

马晓山

Thus, as practitioners of life cultivation, we know that Anger will lead to certain illnesses. Moreover, Bottled-up Anger may cause blood stasis, which eventually may lead to nodules or tumors. Thus, we should not harbor Anger in our mind. Let us look at some situations that produce Anger which we have no way to release.

In modern society, no one can be completely free from Anger. What should we do if we are in an angry situation? Theoretically, it is best to disperse the stagnant energy as soon as possible at the time or the day when we are angry. If we harbor the stagnant energy in our system for a long time, it may become blood stasis and form something tangible, which is what we often call nodules or tumors.

Take a married working woman as an example. A woman usually has a lot of pressure in the workplace. She works at a fast-paced working environment for a long time. When she comes home from work, she has to take care of her husband and her children. In the Eastern culture, she usually lives with her in-laws too. She has to take care of the in-laws too. You know how the in-laws are, so many anger situations arise. However, can she show her Anger in front of her children, husband, and in-laws?

If she has a baby, she will have to take care of the baby. Can she expect her husband to help with baby caring? Can she expect her in-laws to help with baby caring? Yes, her in-laws usually help while she is at work. What happens when she comes home from work? The in-laws will want to give her the baby so that they can take a rest from taking care of the baby.

Now the baby is back at the hands of the working woman. If the woman holds the baby for a long time, she may suffer from lumbar vertebrae deformation. After she has fed the baby, her own food is now cold and she usually loses her appetite. She has to wake up at night to take care of the baby when it cries.

The children have now grown up and go to schools. You may think that her suffering is now over. No. She has to help with the home-works. Right? She has to solve all the problems that the kids now face. She has to solve all future problems that the children may face in their future. Is it a nightmare? You bet. Would you be surprised if she has an emotional breakdown? Do you think she will be angry at some time? Would you be surprised if her personality is not nice at this point?

In summary, now we have a woman who cries: life is tough!

She has on idea and time to live for herself. Women usually have a sensitive personality. They are easily affected by external environments and inner emotions. They will feel tense, anxious, and depressed. Over time, these emotions will cause liver stagnation, which will directly lead to problems such as female breast hyperplasia and nodule growth.

This is not an isolated case. It is already very common. Just look at the increasing number of patients with thyroid nodules, breast hyperplasia and nodules, ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, and infertility.

In a modern society, liver stagnation has become a very common cause of many illnesses. We are under great pressure and are troubled by various unsatisfactory situations such as family, partners, children, workplace, and interpersonal relationships.

From the standpoint of western medicine, the doctor will try to treat each illness separately. However, as practitioners of life cultivation, we know there is only one cause for all the illnesses. The sole cause is liver stagnation or liver depression and we shall treat them accordingly.

Symptoms of Major Illnesses

马晓山

As practitioners of life cultivation, we believe that prevention is better than cure. We do not wait until the onset of disease, especially for middle-aged and old people.

Do you have difficulty breathing, frequent nights, or always flatulence? Some common symptoms of discomfort in life may be horrible. Pay attention and you will live a life without illness.

The British Daily Mail has published a set of self-test questions for health. No matter how old you are, even if there is only one symptom, it may mean that the danger is coming. We should take care of it right away.

01 Riding the night

Common Symptoms

Excessive drinking of water or habitual nocturia at night;

Kidney disease causes a decrease in concentration;

Prostatic hyperplasia in older men, uterine prolapse in older women, etc.

As practitioners of life cultivation, we believe that kidney deficiency often manifests as polyuria or even urinary incontinence, especially in middle-aged and elderly people with reduced visceral function such as kidney.

Recommended Actions

Do not drink water before going to bed. Avoid stress before going to bed. Refer to Mustang Dietary Technique and Mustang Tuna Technique for more information.

Eat more food that will benefit the kidney and nourish the heart, such as walnuts, leeks, black sesame seeds, yam and glutinous rice. Refer to Mustang Dietary Technique for more information.

Engage in self-checking regularly. Check renal function and genitourinary system frequently. Refer to Body Cultivation for more information on how to check your body at home.

02 Difficulty in breathing in cold weather

Common Symptoms

Ryan Simpson, a cardiologist at the British Cardiovascular Society, pointed out that in cold weather, especially after eating or when the body is tired, if we have difficulty in breathing, chest pain or tightness, then it may be an alarm due to arterial stenosis.

If we have symptoms such as difficulty in breathing, wheezing, coughing, pink or white foamy sputum, especially after exercising, then we should be careful about heart failure.

Recommended Actions

01 We should seek timely professional treatment and check for illnesses such as heart disease and asthma.

02 We should keep ourselves warm. We should avoid fatigue and emotional excitement.

03 Elderly people with high blood pressure should consult a physician for medical adjustment before the onset of the Winter.

03 Intestinal flatulence

Common Symptoms

Mark, an oncologist at Christie Hospital in Manchester, England, said that intestinal flatulence, changes in bowel habits, anal pain, mucus in the stool, or blood in the stool may all be associated with colorectal cancer.

Intestinal tumors can interfere with the digestive process, which can cause symptoms such as flatulence and bleeding. In addition, intestinal polyps, ulcers, etc. can also cause the corresponding symptoms.

Recommended Actions

1 Once we detect stool bleeding or stool blackening, we should seek early medical treatment to rule out colorectal cancer.

2 We should develop a habit of regular bowel movements. Refer to Mustang Tuna Technique for more information on how to aid in bowel movement.

3 We should engage in aerobic exercise two to three times a week, forty five minutes per session. Refer to Mustang Shenzhan Technique to pick your favorite exercise.

4 We should eat more foods rich in cellulose such as vegetables and fruits. Refer to Mustang Dietary Technique for more information on what foods to eat.

04 Itchy skin

Common Symptoms

The sebaceous gland secretion is reduced in the elderly, resulting in dry skin, leading to itching.

In addition, a dysfunctional liver or jaundice may also be a cause of itchy skin.

In addition, a small number of early diabetic patients, hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism, as well as tumors in the lymph, stomach, intestine, liver, ovary and prostate, are also accompanied by itchy skin, mostly stubborn.

Recommended Actions

1 Reduce the frequency of bathing in autumn and winter to once a week, avoiding alkaline soap or body wash.

2 If skin itching persists for a long time without reasons, it is a cause for alarm, and we should seek professional care. Refer to Mustang Tuna Technique for information on how to repair a dysfunctional liver.
