the microcosmic orbit
The nervous system is capable of directing the energy wherever it is needed.
Taoist masters have discovered the existence of the microcosmic orbit, or small heavenly cycle, a main energetic circuit, consisting of the governing channel (Governing Vessel meridian) and the function channel (Conception Vessel meridian). The tongue positioned behind the lower teeth (natural position of the tongue) allows to connect these two energy currents.
By circulating energy, consciousness, in the governing channel and the function channel, organs, nervous system and cells are stimulated.
To contribute effectively to the energy balance of the body and calm the mind (Shen), drive energy in the listed order and in a meditative posture that perfectly positions the spine.
Before focusing on the energy that flows through the microcosmic orbit, breathe deeply and relax the whole body. Begin by contracting the perineum (point 12) and then drive the energy from 1 to 7 by the inspiration. On the exhalation, drive the energy from 7 to 12 and start over...
The ideal is to do yoga in advance to facilitate the flow of energy in the body.
