Dynamic energy exchange requires at least one person adept at refining energy. The process is initiated just like feeding. There are two people. One is the donor. The other is the taker. The one who is taking does not need to know refinement of energy: this is for the donor to perform during the exchange.
The donor and the taker should be in close physical contact with one another. There are three positions that are optimal for this tytpe of exchange. There is the Seated Position, facing one another; there is the Aligned Position, back to front; and there is the Aligned Position, front to front.
Seated Position, Front to Front
In the Seated Position, facing one another, the donor and taker sit close together, preferably cross-legged so that their knees are touching. They then each reach out a hand and place it over the other’s heart center. This is the main point of contact for the exchange. The free hand is held loosely at the side, cupped toward the other person to draw in energy through the palm.
The two people may also extend their free hands to one another and make contact at the wrists. This creates a secondary point of contact for the exchange.
The Seated Position is the least effective position for Dynamic Exchange, but it is also the least intimate of the three positions and depending on the situation between the two persons involved, the relative physical distance in the Seated Position may be more desireable than the deepened connection that close contact will achieve.
Aligned Position, Back to Front
In the Aligned Position, back to front, the feeder sits with his back against some support while the donor reclines upon his lap. The back of the donor should be against the chest of the feeder with the donor’s head resting back against one or the other shoulder of the feeder. This effectively aligns the energy centers of both donor and feeder where the back of the donor and the chest of the feeder touch.
The feeder should make points of contact at the throat and over the heart of the donor in this position. Place the dominant taking hand at the throat and the secondary hand over the heart. You may shift the positioning of the hands during the exchange depending on what feels most right, as sometimes neither hand is particularly dominant in taking.
The donor should complete the circuit by making points of contact at the wrists of the feeder with her fingers. If it is impossible for some reason or physically awkward to make connections at the feeder’s wrists, an attempt should be made to initiate points of contact at the backs of the knees or along the upper thighs. Secondary points of contact on the part of the donor assist with the dynamic energy exchange and have the effect of deepening the connection between both parties.
Aligned Postion, Front to Front
The final position, Aligned Position, front to front, is best undertaken by two people who are very close with one another and who are either certain that the exchange will not stray into unwanted sexual territory or who are comfortable with a sexual element to their exchange.
In the Aligned Position, front to front, the donor and feeder sit or lie facing one another, only this time they must be close enough to embrace. The energy centers along their torsos line up and interconnect. The main point of contact should be at the throat. This point of contact can be made with a hand, but it is generally deepest if it is made with the mouth. Both partners should make the connection at the other’s throat. An additional point of contact can be made at the back, just over the heart chakra. Both taker and feeder should make this secondary point of contact. If the main point of contact is made with the mouth, the remaining hand should be placed at the back of the partner’s skull, with at least one finger connected to the Stillpoint.
The Alchemy of the Exchange
For the Dynamic Exchange, the feeding partner initiates things by starting to take from the donor’s energy. Once an initial contact has been made and a steady stream of energy is being taken from the donor, the donor then takes a small amount of energy back from the feeder and begins refining this within herself. As more energy is generated from the refinement, more energy is given to the feeder, and a larger amount can be taken by the donor to continue the transmutation and raise the frequency of what is being exchanged.
In this way, a sort of feeding loop is set up between the two, with the feeder taking the greatest portion and the donor taking back, circulating that energy within herself, concentrating it, then using the energy to vitalize both herself and the feeder.
Through this technique, a relatively small amount of energy achieves the potency of a large amount and the feeding exchange can be drawn out and sustained by the donor nearly indefinitely without any significant loss of energy on her part.
This sort of exchange is ideal between two individuals who are both naturally feeders and who ordinarily cannot produce much energy on their own or cannot generally draw from an outside source. The alchemy of the exchange and refinement essentially creates something out of nothing so that both partners can be fulfilled.
As a final note, this manner of exchange can be initiated between three people as well, although more than three makes the cycling of energy extremely difficult for all involved. If the three involved have specific energy signatures such as those found among Kheprians, with a priest, counselor, and warrior, the exchange is exceptionally potent, as the varying energies interact and complement one another to create something greater than the sum of all three combined.
The interaction between three types in this dynamic manner is known in the Kheprian tradition as Triumvirate work, the three individuals who work together thusly being referred to as a triumvirate. The balance of energies works extremely well within the Kheprian system due to the three distinct energy signatures of the castes, although it is uncertain how applicable it is to traditions which lack any distinct energy castes.
