九霄会所在Patrick A Kelly
9clouds has been established under the guidance of Patrick A Kelly who has 40 years experience in the internal arts, all of that time under the guidance of old masters both in and beyond the body. These old masters contribute their hidden influence to support those 9clouds students who are genuine in the path of internal refinement.
冥想 | Meditation
冥想有九层境界——三层主要的境界中各自又有三个层次——仿佛九层能量的云霄。冥想修习心智的深层结构。这是严肃而有潜在危险的习练。理想的情况是跟随至少有二十年自我修行的资深师傅。 但是，几乎所有在教冥想的人都并非符合此情况。现世到处都有缺乏经验的人们在愚蠢地玩弄着他人的灵修生活，改变路标而另开捷径，完全出于赚取钱财或权利的目的。学生被引偏，将时间和精力浪费在肤浅或想象的技巧上。可以看看有关在历代发生的无经验的老师如何欺骗的文字。 全真派
There are 9 levels of meditation - 3 major levels each with 3 sublevels - corresponding to the 9 energy clouds. meditation works on the deep structures of the Mind. It is a serious and potentially dangerous exercise. Ideally it should be learnt only from highly experienced teachers with at least 20 years training with their own equally experienced teachers. But this is not the case for almost all who teach. The world is full of inexperienced people who foolishly play with the spiritual life of others, changing signposts and creating sidepaths, all for the sake of earning money or power. Students are led astray only to waste their time and energy with superficial or imaginary techniques. See this ancient text which makes clear the deception that has taken place by inexperienced teachers throughout the ages CompleteRealityDaoism

关闭 - 唤醒 | MeditationGuide
深呼吸三次。每次呼气，让思想如准备入睡般停顿闭合。身体的紧张就会得到放松。 然后进一步关闭表层思想。外来生活的烦恼已经忘记了。 思想穿越警惕的安静状态，并走得更深了（不要尝试保持这种安静的状态）思想继续深入，外在的知觉已经没有了。 当梦境状态刚出现，专注于手和脚，寻找一种麻木、丰富和温暖的感觉。 继续深呼吸。呼气要一次比一次深并让加强从手到脚的丰富、温暖的感觉，然后到胸部，然后到身体其他部分直到底部，会阴。 让云光在会阴内部和周围形成。当思想开始深入的时候，加强云光。 在这个阶段，表层的思想已经闭合，深层的思想开始醒悟。 麻木、丰满和温暖的感觉因痛苦、压力和热感的气刺激而出现。 在这种深层的状态，可视光会帮助与身体的丹田链接起来，但在表面安静的状态下，可视化课导致脱离现实的想象。
Initial Guide to Meditation
To begin the process take 3 full deep breaths. Each out breath let the mind close down as if going to sleep. The tensions of the body melt away. Then the superficial-mind closes down further. The troubles of outer life are forgotten. The mind passes through the quiet watchful state and continues deeper (Don't be tempted to rest in that quiet state). While the mind continues deeper, outer awareness fades away.
As the dreamy state first begins to appear, concentrate in the hands and feet looking for sensations of tingling, fullness and warmth. Continue breathing deeply. Each out breath go deeper and intensify the fullness and warmth allowing it to grow into the arms and legs, then into the chest, then down through the trunk to rest in and around the base of the trunk, the perineum (Base Centre).
Next allow a cloud of light to form in and around the perineum. Intensify the light as the mind gently sinks deeper. At this stage the superficial-mind has been closed down and the Deep Mind has begun to awaken. The tingling, fullness and warmth appear due to the energetic stimulation of the pain, pressure and heat sensors. In this deep condition visualising light will help to connect into the reality of the body's energy field, (whereas in a superficially quiet state visualisation may only lead to an imaginary disconnection from reality).

Ramanamaharshi: "Intellect (superficial mind) is of no use at all for seeing within, for turning towards the Self. For that it has to be killed or extinguished, or in other words it has to merge in the source from which it sprang."
