I will try to continue giving out helpful energy and immunity tips throughout this difficult time. Here are two more things you can do right now and every day to stay healthy. Both of these are directly related to the lungs and lung meridians.
But before I get into the two new tips, I just want to remind you that the #1 best and most effective thing you can do right now to boost your immunity is thumping your thymus. Using all of your fingertips or knuckles of one hand, tap or thump vigorously in the middle of your chest (as shown by the blue dot to the right) while taking 3 deep breaths. Do this several times a day, as often as you can. Don’t underestimate the power of this one point! This was just one of the immunity tips given in the previous newsletter. Click here to go back and reference all those tips.
Now onto some new lung-related tips. The first one is to massage or rub (with pressure) all the points that are circled below.
Rub not only the black dots but also the entire section down the midline of your upper chest. Some of these points may feel sore and if they are sore, that means they are clogged with toxins. The more you rub, the more toxins you will release.
For your second tip, we are going to rub the Lung Source Point. Hold one of your hands with the palm facing you. On the thumb side of the wrist crease, find the hollow between a tendon on the thumb side, the radial artery next to it, and the bone at the base of the hand. Hold the point (illustrated below) with gentle pressure for 2 to 3 minutes.
These points on both wrists will send energy directly from the lung meridians to the actual lung organs. They are a powerful source of energy to boost the lungs. I would use these points in a session if the lungs seemed under-energized, ill, or otherwise compromised, but holding these points can not harm you even if your lungs are healthy. In addition to simply holding the points, you can also tap them, rub them, trace Figure 8s over them, or spin a magnet over them.
And the last tip is “flushing the Lung meridian.” By “flushing” the meridian you are essentially rebooting it. It’s a strong stimulation of the meridian which will keep the flow of energy open and help to prevent blockages. Just about all meridians have a direct correlation to the organs that they are named after. So by keeping the Lung meridian healthy, this should, in turn, give a boost to the actual lungs. Don’t worry. It’s much easier than it sounds. Here is an illustration of where the meridian is located in the body.
All you need to do is “trace” that path (indicated by the red line) with the palm of your (other) hand. The trick is to trace the meridian backward (from its normal flow) once and then forward (in the same direction that the meridian normally flows) three times. To do this:
- Place your right hand right along the inside of your left thumb (near the nail bed)
- Slowly move your right hand up the inside of your arm, following that red line.
- Be sure you are rubbing the inside of your arm and continue the flow all the way up to your upper chest (where the red line stops on the illustration).
- This completes tracing the backward flow. You only do this once.
- Now place the palm of your right hand on your upper left chest (where you just ended step 3)
- Rub in the opposite direction down the same path until you get to the inside of your left thumb.
- Repeat tracing in this direction 3 times.
- Now repeat steps 1-7 on the right arm using your left hand.
