A Brief Introduction to the '24 Lights,' How Tibetan Pulsing Yoga Works and What Makes It Such A Brilliant System. . .

(Simon Rees)

This article is a very brief introduction to one of the most essential and extraordinary aspects of Tibetan Pulsing Yoga of all - the so-called '24 Lights' - a symbolic map which is studied, experienced and observed in much greater depth and detail on the many different Tibetan Pulsing Yoga practice modules. When it comes to the 24 Lights, in my view a whole library of books could easily be filled with material, stories, observations, analyses, analogies, metaphors, correlations, parallels, poetics, integrated understandings, explanations, hypotheses, discoveries, reflections, breakthroughs, mysteries, inspirations, innovations and many other paradigm-shifting topics of great importance to the world! But don't panic, we won't be creating a library today, only this brief passage. . .

Since I first learned of the 24 Lights and began practising Tibetan Pulsing Yoga many years ago, I have never ceased to be amazed at the great significance they have to every facet of human life and experience. The more I look into it - the more I delve into the experience of Tibetan Pulsing Yoga - the more fascinated I become by the reality and deeper meaning of the 24 Lights!

But what are the 24 Lights? Well, Tibetan Pulsing Yoga is a journey of meditation and transformation, and in order to make this journey easier by charting the way, a vast and detailed map of the human psyche was discovered (or remembered?) by Shantam Dheeraj through inspiration during meditation, and then painstakingly developed over many years. The entire repertoire of human experience is symbolically represented within this map, consisting of 24 specific phases of development.

Many times, at first, I tried questioning these assertions in order to check them out. However, they aren't theories or intellectual suppositions, they relate only to pragmatic observation and improved methods for the practice of yoga. And so what I found repeatedly, every time I sought to used my own observation and experience to 'test' the proposed map of 24 Lights underpinning human experience, I found it again and again to be an extremely accurate, authentic and reliable map.

Dheeraj found that this fundamental map is represented inside the nervous system in the form of 24 distinct bio-electrical circuits, each corresponding with one of the 24 vertebrae of the spine, and an organ or area of the body, after which each circuit was therefore named – for example, one bio-electrical circuit was named the Liver circuit, because it includes the liver itself, although it also encompasses the 7th cervical vertebra, the right shoulder blade, the right maxillary bone, and many other specific points around the body. (Important note: This is emphatically not the same as the Liver meridian in Acupuncture, which takes a completely different route and has an altogether different nature and function).

Each circuit has its own frequency, governing a certain realm of human experience and emotion. This frequency is also then associated with specific colours, sounds and images.

DisLet's illustrate all this with a few brief examples. Have you ever wondered how your stomach might actually feel, if it had emotions of its own, when you guzzle down three Mars bars in a row? Or your gut? Maybe your stomach would be just ready to have a party – at least until it hears the intestines and pancreas below it gurgling and groaning with the strain of the junk food! One thing’s for sure: each organ would have completely unique emotions – and this is in fact how it is with our nerves which connect to them.

It is an incredible - but true - discovery, with far-reaching implications, that each organ in our body has its very own character and story reflected both in its own electrical frequency and in the corresponding points in our brain and other parts of the nervous system where we feel the related emotions – in the case of the Liver, we might have a slow-moving, insecure character with a tendency to depression – while the Spleen, on the other hand, spins a different story within our nervous system, tending to move too fast, with a character more resembling an excitable hyperactive child. As you will quickly guess, every circuit has both its own particular pitfalls or weaknesses along with its special strengths – such as the Liver’s great stability, or the Spleen’s boundless energy.

The same map of 24 (albeit with many further subdivisions) can be seen in the precise markings of the iris, and so a system of eye diagnosis was developed to enable the Tibetan Pulser to identify where a person most needed acupressure (pulsing), depending on which bio-electrical circuits were most blocked. This map has nothing to do with Iridology as developed in the West, however, and is used to pinpoint far more than just physical weaknesses. Unlike an Iridologist, a Tibetan Pulser is able to determine whether a wound has been mainly physical, emotional or mental, or perhaps all three together, constituting a ‘unison’ or ‘soul’ wound at all levels, as well as determining both the nature and the energetic location and impact of the wound.

All of this is possible because the entire nervous system  - not just the brain - carries specific memories within it of many kinds.

Whenever a shock has been received, an imprint has been left somewhere in our nerves. As we grow up, the collected shocks and traumas of our whole life cause the flow of bio-electrical life-energy within our nerves to be blocked and suppressed, leading to tension, pain, bad health and every possible form of unhappiness.

In Tibetan Pulsing Yoga sessions, different specific points in the nervous system are connected up to form a circuit of bio-electrical energy which is strong enough to eliminate these past shocks and traumas from the nerves. Primarily the fingers and palms are used, although other parts of the body may be gently used too, such as the feet and elbows, or even bamboo sticks in certain cases.

In sessions and courses, therefore, usually a focus is made on a particular organ circuit, i.e. on one of these 24 lights - such as for example in the New Mind process, which comprises 24 separate modules, one for each organ, and therefore sets out in depth to systematically eliminate the tension and blockages from the roots of the bio-electrical charges held in each of these 24 parts of the self in turn. Eventually, the culmination of this New Mind process, then - and of Tibetan Pulsing Yoga practice in general - is a rejuvenated nervous system which has been stripped of many of its previously accumulated negativity, allowing many positive blessings to enter in its place - such as joy, bliss, relaxation, meditation, tranquillity, wisdom and compassion.
