The 14 Characters (sounds) of Standing Meditation
From a fan of MIT Qigong! Thanks for sharing!
These characters were taught to me by Mr. Chan.
There are Chinese words where the sounds have a physiological effect. They are used in standing meditation to put mind and body into a natural state. This allows the (Qi) to consolidate and become a force.
The 14 characters are as follows;
Sser Ling: (Be empty, active and alert). This brings the spirit of vitality up to the eyes.
Ting Ching: Suspends the neck making the spine upright.
Haum Shian: Relaxes and slightly depresses the chest to let the chi flow freely down the Den Mo meridian
Fut Pei: Pulls up and rounds the back
Wei Lu Ti: Lifts the coccyx to connect the Jen Mo to the Tu Mo meridian, in the lower back, to
form the microscopic orbit.)
Ting Tou Shiang: Suspends the head, like hanging, so the spirit of vitality can ascend.
