Qi Gong Secrets:
For thousands of years the breath has been the key component in meditation and development of higher level spiritual development amongst Gnostic Christians, Taoist and Buddhist as well as Hindu and Aboriginals (didjereedoo).
By taking care of the lungs, and practicing deep slow breathing, many masters over many centuries have reached very deep levels of personal development.
Before placing the patch, tap the point 10-15 times on both arms hard enough that the skin appears slightly pink. This will open the circulation in the meridian and immediately improve energy levels without the need for stimulants like caffeine.
In the Shaolin and Wudang systems of martial arts, many masters are able to demonstrate great abilities of strength including breaking stones and bricks with their bare hands, and being nearly impenetrable to weapons.
The secret to this remarkable skill is based in the knowledge of strengthening the lung’s Qi known as “Wae Qi” and thus the the practice of “Wae Gong” is a part of Qi Gong.
When Wae Gong is strong, this also means that the individual is less susceptible to pathogenic invasion that may cause illness.
The Tai Yin Meridian aka Lung Meridian starts in the middle burner of the San Jiao at Ren 12 and descends to connect with the large intestine at Ren 9 where is has an influential relationship to the kidneys.
Tai Yin then descends across the anterior aspect of the upper arm to the transverse cubital crease and through Lung 5.
The Tai Yin meridian is used to treat cough, asthma, sneezing, stuffy nose, hemoptysis, congested and sore throat, sensation of fullness in the chest, pain in the supraclavicular fossa, shoulder, back and anterior border of the medial aspect of the arm.
The Points of The Lung Meridian
In the highest levels of Taoism the great masters traditionally train their lung qi and develop more advanced mind body spirit capabilities through development of Nae Gong using a bamboo flute known as the Daegum, while in Australia, the Aboriginals enter deep trance states through the circular breath work of the didgeridoo.
All of these practices improve breath and thus mind control and the ability to control one’s thoughts and energy to a great degree of clarity and thus wisdom.
