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.


The Energetic Baton

Once you have worked on visualizing the Upper and Lower Energy Centers at the same time, you can visualize their connection running up and down the front of the spine. This is the Energetic Baton.

You may be thinking, "Wait! Why didn't we just visualize the whole baton from the beginning?" Good question. The answer is because the important aspect of the baton is how energy moves within it. If you begin visualizing one solid object, it becomes harder to visualize the energy moving within it. On the other hand, if you picture each energy center separately, as a pool or source of energy, and then picture a connection between then, like a pipe or a tunnel, it is much easier to experience the energy moving between them.

When you picture the baton, pay attention to the similarities and differences between the two energy centers. How are the sensations different? Where does the energy naturally flow in your body? Why?

Next week, we deal with cooling the baton to relieve stress.
