Hi all. I've been doing the full sequence of Dragon & Tiger for a few weeks now, but I'm still confused about something in Movement 7.
I understand how to use my sword fingers to trace the energy paths from shoulder nests to bai hui, as in Movement 6. I understand how to trace the paths from shoulder nests to palms, as in Movement 2. I just don't inderstand how to do both at the same time.
Do the index and middle fingers trace to the head while the thumb, ring and pinky fingers trace to the palm? Is it rather that the fingers trace to the head while the mind visualizes tracing to the palms? Is it done by some other method?
The book is quite detailed in general, but I must say I think it glosses over this particular issue. On the other hand, there don't seem to be any other people here in the forum asking about this, so maybe it's something plain as day that my brain's just not getting.
Because Dragon and Tiger Qigong is a simple and effective qigong practice, it is taught to students at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine. Tracing the meridian lines helps our students to become more sensitive to both their own and their patients' chi and enables them to become better acupuncturists.
