Things to be mindful of:

- keep the tongue touching the roof of the mouth to increase the flow of Chi

- the Top of the head is called the Hundred Meeting Point - the Heavenly Energy Point

- inner canvas of the eyes - The Eye Bright Points - keep eyes directed

- palms of the hands - The Palace of Toil - feel the energy in your palms

- lower trunk of body - The Lower Trunk Point - keep spine straight and knees bent

- either sides of your ankle bones - The Yang Extending Points - important to be mindful of free flow chi at side of body

- soles of feet - The Bubbling Spring Points - helps to receive energy from the ground

- use Chi to circulate throughout body, not muscles!

*Based on the Body Clock theory the ideal time to treat any organ with a Chi Kung exercise is during the peak time of the 2 hour intervals as indicated on the chart. However, speaking in terms of practicality while being mindful of traditional sacred periods of the day, the ideal time to practice Chi Kung exercises is during the hours of the living breath from midnight to noon; the middle of the living breath - 6 o'clock a.m. or sunrise is the ideal time of day.*
