Like the Yin-Yang, Eastern Martial Arts and Western medicine are two halves of a whole. My mission is to preserve the ancient mind-body tools, and pass them on to you.

 

Cooling the Energetic Baton

To round out our series on the Energetic Baton, we're going to talk about how to cool it.

Energy naturally moves up the baton, to the head, as our brains are over stimulated during the day. This upsets the energetic balance, and to regain an energetic balance, you need to cool the Upper Energy Center.

To do this, put your mind in the Upper Energy Center, and slowly move it downward to the Lower Energy Center. This moving of your internal visualization will draw the energy down with it, cooling the Upper Energy Center.

The best way to do this is by facing the setting sun, and allowing the powerful downward energy to pull the heat from your head and chest areas to your lower abdomen.

Later, you can visualize the pull of the energy down in a spiral, rather than a straight line. And once you have enough experience, you can actually reside in the Lower Energy Center first, and pull the energy down from the Upper Energy Center in the same way. This will help you avoid being drawn back up into the Upper Energy Center and away from the meditation.
