This is our natural state of being
It takes only five minutes of daily practice to enjoy the rewards.
- Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, your whole body relaxed.
- Hold arms relaxed by your side with space between your arms and body. Sink down the shoulders, drop the elbows.
- Fingers pointing to the ground, palms facing behind you.
- Slightly bend your knees.
- Joints should be relaxed and open.
- Release the muscles of the neck, both outward toward the surface and down along the back. Think of the muscles gently lengthening and opening.
- Soles of the feet connected to the earth and head connected to the heavens – imagining the head is suspended with a string attached to the crown.
- Back and chest need to be central and erect. The spine is the highway for electrical messages to the brain. Think of the spine as a flexible rope.
- Relax the hips, tuck your pelvis in. (This can improve sexual performance, responsiveness and strengthens reproductive system.)
- Rest tongue on the roof of your mouth. This generates saliva and allows qi to circulate with a stronger current.
- Breathe naturally. Breathing should be slow, soft, gentle and deep (in through the nose, out through the nose.)
- Observe your breath and watch for the bliss moment at the top and bottom of your breath (no breath in and no breath out).
- Feel the air entering your nose.
Health benefits include:
- relieves stress and anxiety
- increases creativity
- helps lift depression
- clears the mind
- brings you to stillness within.
“Return to Wu Chi and
Embrace your spirit
Open and close as you turn
And the bones will grow firm
The energy will move like clouds and rain, limitless.”
