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.

 

Morning Meditation: Nourish Your Organs and Spirit

Nourishing the whole body using the rising sun is an ancient meditation practice. Using this meditation between sunrise and noon will strengthen and upgrade your energetic and immune systems, and at the same time nourish your internal organs, strength the core, and awaken your spirit.

The practice involves facing east and directing your Third Eye area toward the rising sun, leading the sun's energy in through the Spiritual Valley and down the center of the body, all the way down to your lower energy center. This meditation can be done standing or sitting, indoors or outdoors.

Meditation Practice During Sunrise

Find a spot where the sun will shine about 10 minutes before sunrise, standing or sitting down on a firm chair. Lengthen the spine as though the top of your head was connected to the heavens by a string and create space for your internal organs.

Have your feet solidly on the ground to make a strong connection to the ground and reduce the stress on your joints. Visualize the connection of your energy with the earth energy coming up from the ground.

Place your hands one on top of the other below your belly button right in front of your lower energy center. Remember to wrap yourself with a blanket or coat on cold days to keep the energy inside the body and prevent its dispersal into the air as extra heat.

Breath deeply through the nose, feeling the energy travel in through your forehead, down through your chest and stomach and into your lower abdomen. When you breath out, visualize the negative energy leaving your body through the breath.

Repeat this for as long as you are comfortable, paying attention to the warmth that spreads through your body. Visualize the warmth spreading all through your organs, even into your extremities all the way to the tips of the toes and fingers.

And that's it!

Happy Stretching!
