MICRO-COSMIC ORBIT : A Meditation
To Awaken YouR Energy
The Micro Cosmic Orbit - an easy way to move energy in a circular path up the spine and down the front of the body, connecting with the acupuncture meridians, to bring sustained health and vitality. the Microcosmic Orbit (or small heavenly cycle) has been known and revered for several thousand years. It has been presented in many different forms by this stage in its development, but the essence is always the same: the flow within the two great central meridians is combined to create a still more powerful and united force.
When we view Ren Mai (CV) as the "sea of yin" and Du Mai (GV) as the "sea of yang" we see the fundamental nature of their polarity and their communion as a promise of abundant possibilities. If, as is predicated, all of the yin meridians flow into Ren Mai, then we may expect an exchange of energies between the peripheral yin meridians (Ht, Kid, Lu, Sp, Pc and Liv) and the central yin channel. This exchange should logically involve the overflow of excess energy as well as a topping‐up effect in cases of deficiency in both directions.
When we look closely at the meridian charts and descriptions of these two extraordinary meridians we see that not only do they have a much more complicated network than first meets the eye. They also have several meeting points or convergence areas which make the whole thing much more interesting.
For example both Ren and Du are said to have branches travelling within the spine and both connect with the eye. Both have branches that travel through the Kidneys and both also pass through the Heart. So that's: heart, kidneys, eyes and spine, which makes quite an impressive list.
We might conclude then that combining the Sea of Yin and the Sea of Yang creates an extra link between the Heart and Kidney, the Shao Yin meridians themselves the basal elemental axis uniting Jing with Shen then roots that link into the pillar of the spine and sends it shooting out through the eyes.
Another seminal formula within traditional daoist thought is the three treasures: Jing, Qi and Shen (see diagram above). It may well be that the microcosmic orbit is indeed the alchemical practice which most efficiently helps us transform the base matter of our physical existence into glowing human spirit.
