Twin Flame Exercises

There are a series of steps that must be mastered before attempting the twin flame exercise. The overall process itself involves energy exercises and a telepathic connection with a person's most aligned energetic companion, their twin soul/flame.

Training Protocols in the Alchemies of Horus

This section defines a basic practice within the Alchemies of Horus. The Alchemies of Horus were the foundation for both those on the solitary path and for those in partnership. The main difference between these two paths is that the person on the solitary path must generate the extra energy and ecstasies from his or her own efforts. Those in sacred Tantric relationships acquire the needed energy and ecstasies spontaneously from the sex act. In our application of these principals, we will connect telepathically with our twin and experience the exercise together.

The djed or sacred pathway of the chakras begins at the base of the spine and goes up through the spine and into the head. There is a secondary djed pathway that moves from the perineum directly up to the crown called the Central Colum or Central Pillar. In some esoteric schools it is referred to as the pranic tube. The training exercises, below, use both of these pathways.

The fundamental alchemical task in relation to the djed is to accumulate enough energy so that it can be sent up through the pathway and into the head centers.

The training exercises below generate the needed energy from the power of the breath. Their purpose is to familarize you with the feeling, the physical sensation, if you will, of the subtle energy moving up the djed.

The first section of the training protocol consists of three different exercises. The first one deals with the secondary djed (the Central Colum or Pillar) that runs directly from the perineum up to the crown. The second exercise deals with the primary djed that runs up the spine. And the third exercise works with the energy after it is brought up into the head.

The second section of the training protocol familiarizes you with how to transform the energy moving through the djed into a serpent-like form. And finally, the last exercise familiarizes you with activating the pathway of the Two Serpents by experiencing energy moving simultaneously through both the lunar and solar pathways. The term Djed - the sacred pathway of the chakras. The djed runs from the base of the spine to the top of the head(the crown chakra). This is the central pathway for the process of Ascension in Egyptian alchemy.


First Section

The First Exercise

Sit comfortably and close your eyes. Place the focus of your attention, in other words, the alchemical container of your awareness, on your pelvic floor. This is the area of your body at the lowest part of your abdomen in the cradle of your pelvis. Find a rhythm that is pleasurable for you and breath deeply (yet comfortably) drawing the breath into your belly. As you inhale, let the lower abdomen expand, and as you exhale pull in the lower abdomen. This form of breathing is called abdominal breathing and may feel odd to you at first. After awhile, however, it will feel natural and comfortable. Throughout all of these exercises it is very important that all breaths be gentle and comfortable. Nothing should ever be forced in these practices.

As you inhale, imagine the energy of your breath reaching down into every nook and cranny of your pelvis. The reason for this is that you are causing sekhem to stir, and sekhem, or your life-force, is cradled in the pelvic area. As you exhale, keep your focus in the pelvis. This will cause the energy of sekhem to build or intensify in the pelvic area. Continue this for a couple of minutes or so.

Then imagine a subtle energy pathway or channel that runs from your perineum up to the top of your head (the crown). The perineum is located at the lowest point of your torso, midway between your genitals and the anus. Next, there is a slight but significant shifting of your attention.

As you inhale keep your focus in the pelvis as before. But when you exhale, shift your attention, the alchemical container of your awareness, into the channel. This will cause the energy of sekhem to enter the channel and begin to move upward. As you continue to exhale, move your attention all the way up the channel and into your head. Then repeat the breathing pattern all over again. In other words, each time you inhale, shift your attention to the pelvis, and hold it there throughout the entire inhale.As you exhale, shift your attention to the channel, and begin to move your focus up the channel toward the head. Repeat as many times as needed to clearly sense a movement of energy up the secondary djed and into the head.

These exercises are built upon each other so it is important to master each one before proceeding to the next. Make sure that you feel a definite movement of subtle energy up the secondary djed and into the head. If you don't have a clear sense of this, repeat the exercise over and over again until you do.

A note about uncomfortable physical sensations:

Occasionally a person might experience tension or headaches from these exercises. This may occur if there is habitual tension in the muscles of the jaw, face, and/or neck since this type of muscle tends to constrict the movement of sekhem or life force as it moves up into the head. If you experience discomfort at any time during these exercises, you should stop, put them aside and return to them later.

If you find that this type of tension arises whenever you do the exercises you might try yawning since yawning helps to lesson muscle tension in the face, jaws, and shoulders. Simply yawn as you inhale and exhale. It can be quite effective and besides that, its fun.


The Second Exercise

In this exercise you basically do the same thing you did in the first, except that the movement of the sekhem is up the spine (or the primary djed).

Sit comfortably and close your eyes. Place the focus of your attention, in other words, the alchemical container of your awareness, on your pelvic floor. Find a rhythm that is pleasurable for you and breathe deeply (though comfortably) drawing the breath into the belly. As you inhale, let the lower abdomen expand, and as you exhale pull in the lower abdomen.

As you inhale, imagine the energy of your breath reaching down into every nook and cranny of your pelvis. The reason for this is that you are , as in the first exercise, causing sekhem to stir and sekhem, or your life-force, is cradled in the pelvic area. As you exhale, keep your focus in the pelvis. This will cause the energy of sekhem to build or intensify in the pelvic area. Continue this for a couple of minutes or so.

Then your attention changes somewhat. On the inhales, attention is still in the pelvis, but on the exhales shift your attention into the spine (the djed), and move your attention up the spine from the base to the top of your head with each exhale.

Continue this for a few minutes until you sense a clear sensation of energy moving up the spine and to the top of the head.

After you clearly sense this flow of subtle energy, proceed on to the next exercise. If you do not sense this flow of energy then repeat the exercise until you do.


The Third Exercise

In this exercise, you follow the same procedure as you did in exercise number two with one difference. When you exhale and the energy of sekhem or life-force moves up the spine, you bring it into the center of the head instead of the top. As the energy is brought into the center of the head you allow it to circulate through the brain sensing the movement of energy.

Sit comfortably and close your eyes. Place the focus of your attention, in other words, the alchemical container of your awareness, on your pelvic floor. Find a rhythm that is pleasurable for you and breathe deeply (though comfortably) drawing the breath into your belly. As you inhale, let the lower abdomen expand, and as you exhale, let the lower abdomen expand, and as you exhale pull in the lower abdomen.

As you inhale, imagine the energy of your breath reaching down into every nook and cranny of your pelvis. The reason for this is that you are, as in the first exercise, causing sekhem to stir, and sekhem, or your life-force, is cradled in the pelvic area. As you exhale, keep your focus in the pelvis. This will cause the energy of sekhem to build or intensify in the pelvic area. Continue this for a couple of minutes or so.

After a few minutes of building the energy in the pelvis, you are ready for the next phase. On the inhales, attention is still in the pelvis, but on the exhales shift your attention into the spine (the died), and move your attention up the spine from the base to the center of your head with each exhale. The energy of sekhem will follow the circuit of your attention and flow upwards into the center area of the brain. Then pause for a moment and sense the flow as it moves on its own through different areas of the brain.

Continue this for a few minutes until you sense a clear sensation of energy moving up the spine and into the center of the brain.


Second Section

First Exercise: Raising of the Single Serpent

In this exercise, you repeat what you did in the last exercise of the previous section. However, instead of taking the energy into the center of your head, you bring the energy up and over the two hemispheres just under the top of the skull. This movement of the energy is cobra-like, in that the tail of the serpent extends down the full length of the spine to the base while the hood of the cobra is extended over the two hemispheres of the brain. Holding the energy in the image of a cobra in this way causes a distinct type of brain stimulation and is a precursor for the Uranus[sometimes referred to as "the anointing," the Uranus occurs when sekhem (life-force) is brought up the djed and into the brain.

Sit comfortably and close your eyes. Place the focus of your attention, in other words, the alchemical container of your awareness, on your pelvic floor. Find a rhythm that is pleasurable for you and breath deeply (though comfortably) drawing the breath into your belly. As you inhale, let the lower abdomen expand, and as you exhale pull in the lower abdomen.

As you inhale, imagine the energy of your breath reaching down into every nook and cranny of your pelvis. The reason for this is that you are causing sekhem to stir and sekhem, or your life-force, is cradled in the pelvic area. As you exhale, keep your focus on the pelvis. This will cause the energy of sekhem to build or intensify in the pelvic area. Continue this for a couple of minutes or so.

After a few minutes of building the energy in the pelvis, you are ready for the next phase. On the inhales attention is still in the pelvis, but on the exhales shift your attention into the spine (the djed), and move your attention up the spine from the base to a space above the two hemispheres of the brain and directly under the top of the skull.

As you sense this space above the brain, allow your-self to feel the movement of the energy. Imagine the form of this energy as a cobra with its hood extended over the brain itself. Then repeat the procedure until you have a clear sensation of the serpent-like form of this energy over the brain.


The Second Exercise: The Two Serpents

In this exercise, it is assumed that you have successfully experienced the single serpent in the previous exercise. If you haven't clearly experienced the single serpent, return to the previous exercise before continuing.

There is the concept of the Black and Gold Serpents. The Black Serpent rises through the lunar pathway on the left side of the djed and is connected with the Darkness of the Void or the creatrix of all creation. The Gold Serpent rises through the solar pathway on the right side of the djed and is connected with light. In a sense the Two Serpents are alchemically opposites and when you bring two opposites together within an alchemical container there is the possibility of immense energy.

In this preliminary training you will be causing the energy of sekhem to split into two different streams of energy. As the life-force rises up the djed it takes two different yet parallel paths. The Black Serpent rises from the left side at the base of the djed while the Gold Serpent rises from the right side of the djed, also from the base. However, as they continue to rise up the djed toward the head, they cross over each other as they enter the chakras.

Thus the Gold Serpent crosses over to the left side of the djed as it enters the sexual chakra and the Black Serpent crosses over to the right. As they climb further up the djed, the Gold Serpent crosses back over to the right side as it enters the solar plexus and the Black Serpent crosses back over to the left.

Next, the Gold Serpent crosses to the left side as it enters the heart and the Black Serpent crosses over to the right side. As they enter the throat chakra, the Gold Serpent returns to the right side of the djed and the Black Serpent returns to the left side. Then they climb to the crown chakra where the Gold Serpent crosses to the left side of the djed and the Black Serpent crosses over to the right side.

Finally, they meet at the center of the head with the Gold Serpent hovering on the right side while the Black Serpent hovers on the left side. Both of them face each other with the pineal and the pituitary glands sitting between them. The purpose of this exercise is just to familiarize you with the phenomenon of rising both serpents up the djed and into the head.

To do the exercise, sit comfortably and close your eyes. Place the focus of your attention, in other words, the alchemical container of your awareness, on your pelvic floor. Find a rhythm that is pleasurable for you and breath deeply (though comfortably) drawing the breath into the belly. As you inhale, let the lower abdomen expand, and as you exhale pull in the lower abdomen.

As you inhale, imagine the energy of your breath reaching down into every nook and cranny of your pelvis. The reason for this is that you are causing sekhem to stir, and sekhem, or your life-force, is cradled in the pelvic area. As you exhale, keep your focus on the pelvis. This will cause the energy of the sekhem to build or intensify in the pelvic area. Continue this for a couple of minutes or so.

After a few minutes of building the energy in the pelvis, you are ready for the next phase. On the inhales, attention is still in the pelvis but on the exhales shift your attention into the base of the djed. Through the power of intention (will) imagine the Two Serpents being charged with the energy of the breath. As you continue to exhale, send the energy up through the two pathways of the serpents. Imagine them as clearly in your mind as possible sensing them crossing each other at each of the chakras and finally ending in the center of the head.

Continue the practice until you have a clear sense of the two serpent-like energies running up the spine and into the head. Allow yourself to sense the movement of the life-force up these two pathways as the serpents "writhe" in response to your breath. Sense the subtle energies that are generated within the brain as a result of this practice.


The Twin Flame Exercise

The connection process with your twin is unique for each of us. It can involve entering a meditative state and imagining a conversation. Once that has been established you both perform that last exercise for about 20 minutes. The initial phase is when you bring your focus to where the crossing energies at the crown chakra are finally ending in the center of the head. Repeat that cycle for the remainder of the 20 minutes. Sense if you can the pituitary gland receiving the energy it requires to function at its highest level. For when it does that, you will not age or die.
