Fountain of Youth by Peter Kelder
The body has 7 energy centres, which,
in English would be called vortexes. In Hindu they are known as chakras.
They are powerful electrical fields, invisible to the eye, but quite
real nonetheless. Each of these 7 vortexes centres on one of the 7
ductless glands in the body's endocrine system and it functions in
stimulating the gland's hormonal output. It is these hormones that
regulate all of the body's functions, including the process of ageing.
In a healthy body, each of these vortexes revolves at great speed,
permitting vital life energy, also called prana or etheric energy, to
flow upward through the endocrine system. But if one or more of these
vortexes begins to slow down, the flow of vital energy is inhibited or
blocked, and this is another name for ageing and ill health.
These spinning vortexes extend outward from the body in a healthy
individual, but in the old, weak and sickly, they hardly reach the
surface. The quickest way to regain youth, health and vitality is to
start these energy centres spinning normally again. Always work within
your own comfort zones and never over extend yourself. You may
experience detoxification with these exercises. Begin by doing 3 of each
for a week and then increase by 2 new repetitions each week. Do not
overexert, these are very powerful exercises. For a more detailed
description read the book by Peter Kelder: 'Ancient Secret of the
Fountain of Youth'.
Begin with 1-5 repetitions of each exercise. Add 2 repetitions each week
or as you feel ready to. Work up to a total of 21 repetitions of each
exercise. For best results perform daily.
Rite Number One
Standing with your arms
outstretched, palms facing downward, spin around in a clockwise
direction. Do not attempt to spin too many times and get dizzy.
Rite Number Two
Lie flat on your back, with your
arms at your sides, palms facing downward. Bring your chin to your
chest. Lift your legs to a vertical position. Slowly lower both legs and
head to the floor, keeping your legs straight. Bend your legs if you are
unable to keep them straight. Breathe in as you lift your legs and out
as you lower them.
Kneel on the floor with your body
upright, bending your toes backward, so that they keep contact with
floor. Bring your chin to your chest. Arch your spine as you gently move
your head backward as far as it will go. Breathe in deeply as you arch
your spine and out as you return to the upright position.
Rite Number Four
Sit on the floor with your legs
outstretched, your feet shoulder width apart and your hands flat next to
you, palms down. Bring your chin to your chest. Let your head sink back
as far as it will go. Keeping your arms straight, your hands and feet in
place, bend your knees and raise the trunk of your body to a horizontal
position. Tense your muscles, then relax. Breathe in deeply as you raise
your body. Hold in the breath as you tense your muscles and breathe out
completely as you come down.
Rite Number Five
Support your body in a sagging
position with your arms straight, your hands planted on the floor and
your toes curled under. Gently move your head back as far as it will go.
Keeping your hands and feet in place, bend at the hips and bring your
body into an inverted V position. Bring your chin forward to your chest.
Tense your muscles for a moment both at the raised point and at the
lowered point. Breathe in as you raise your body and breathe out as you
The exercises do help to stretch stiff muscles, joints and improve
muscle tone. However their main benefit is to normalise the
spinning of the vortexes to that of a strong and healthy man or woman of
25 years of age.
