Electronics etc. and Lung/Prana

Post by Johnny Dangerous » Wed May 25, 2016 1:02 am

With the Yoga and Qigong I have been involved in, it was a common belief that being in regular close proximity to lots of electronics could disturb one's subtle body/energetic system etc. Personally this always resonated with me because I developed reynauds syndrome: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raynaud's_phenomenon from working in a Data Center for years, and I actually managed to heal it to some degree with Qigong.

I was wondering if Tibetan Medicine also has a similar concept in regards to electronics etc, and if so what are the recommendations for excessive Lung that is stirred up due to them. I believe one of the recommendations from Qigong and yoga was being in and around water.

When my wife used to work on base very close to the giant radar dish, she was extremely affected. Orgonite was actually helpful in bringing down the effects until I could train her enough to withstand them herself. I don't suggest it as a solution for anyone, mostly because of the paranoia the people who sell it spread. OrgoneCrystals was the only decent vendor with a good understanding of energy.

Other things that I know work, are actual quartz crystals (I guess it's a matter of like curing like), holy images and statues, or you can purify the area with chanting or rituals. A correctly built prayer wheel will definitely do the trick. Other than that, you have to build your internal force.

I was actually asking about the Tibetan medicine view on it, as we can no longer post in the actual Tibetan Medicince forum.

I didn't realize that forum wasn't active. Sorry.

Got any basic advice? I have a Tsa Lung practice, and I've found the water thing helpful...but I almost feel like my sensitivity to electronics has gotten worse.

Interesting that. Could you elaborate a bit?
To offer care and affection to sentient beings
In desperate situations who lack protection
Brings just as much merit as the meditation
On emptiness with compassion as its core—
So it has been said by glorious Lord Atisha.

In my previous job, I worked in front of a computer for 8+ hours a day in an office setting. Surrounding me were other computers. I think that's not very healthy. Can computers drain my energy? I always feel tired after sitting in front of a computer for many hours.

As a student I am on a computer most of the time, since all my study materials are in electronical form now and I've noticed that using pc for too long makes me numb. Taking a pause from pc few times in an hour and having a short walk around the room, or just going to the bathroom helps a bit.
