    I finished my Hsing-I warms-up this morning and started playing different neigung elements inside the bagua palm changes. The more neigung you know, the more interesting the forms become.

    For example, I started playing with twisting. I’d setup a twist of the hand and wrist in one direction and then twist the forearm in the opposite direction. The “energy” of the Lake Palm Change shows up between the two circles. Basically the tissue is spiraling toward each other and by emphasizing one twist more than another, you can target the intersection. At that point, you awaken the central channel. From there you can open that point, or close it, or make it simultaneously open and close, or you can just notice the consciousness that begins emanating from the point.

    At this moment in my practice, the Lake Palm Change represents exactly the point between two opposites that helps you find pure consciousness or emptiness. For me, it isn’t a big booming experience. It is quiet.

    So, I create this in another way with another neigung element. I play with the kwa and shoulders nest’s cavities. I create opposing circles in them. First just on one side of the body. It doesn’t matter which side. It doesn’t matter which circles in what direction as long as one circles in the opposite direction of the other. Between them a spiral targets a point along the side channel in some organ and consciousness appears. I can open there, close it, simultaneously open and close it, or just allow it to awaken the body further making it easier to work with all of the tissue at any level.

    The top and the bottom open the center. This is the “energy” of the Lake Palm Change: the emptiness in the middle woken up by two opposites coming to the center.
