Bearing without possession
Achieving without arrogance
Raising without domination
This is called the Mystic Virtue.”
This week’s acupressure point is the Third Eye Point (GV 24.5). This is a very effective point for many health concerns – both mental and physical. For this week, we are going to use the Third Eye Point stimulate the pituitary gland which will improve the condition of the skin throughout the thole body.
Third Eye Point (GV 24.5):
Sit as usual in a quiet area of your home. Take 3 to 6 slow breaths in through your nose and out through your mouth.
You will find this acupressure point between your eyebrows at an indentation where the bridge of the nose meets the center of the forehead.
Clasp your hands together in a prayer position. Use your middle and index fingers to lightly touch the Third Eye Point. Concentrate on this point and breathe in and out slowly through your nose for 1 to 2 minutes.
Breathe in through your nose tightening your abdomen as you do so (reverse breathing).
Lift your arms out to the sides until they are above your head, palms facing the ceiling, fingers slightly apart.
Hold for a moment, then release your hands so they are facing downward again and lower your arms slowly back to your sides as you breathe out through your mouth, releasing just your lower abdomen. Repeat all steps twice more.
Don’t forget to drink water at the end of your exercise session or any time you begin to feel thirsty. A Word of Caution…If you have or have had problems with your kidneys, please consult your physician.
