Qigong Meditations For Health & Vitality
Mimi offers two qigong visualisation meditations in this practice. The first is called microcosmic orbit. Microcosmic orbit works with major channels of the body, the yin meridian (ren mai) and yang meridian (du mai) on the front and back channels of the body respectively. Known as the conception and governing channels. These meridians help regulate the flow of qi to the other 12 meridians and organs of the body. Circulating good flow of energy in the main rivers means tributaries can receive the flow more effortlessly. The second is called an organ-gemstone meditation. This meditation is one to do any time you feel like you are about to get sick; 90% of the time, it will prevent a cold or sore throat from coming on.
