The practice of “pulling down the heavens” is a staple of Qigong practice. I recommend doing it before and after every practice. It is a simple, sweeping movement.
- Starting from the Wu Ji posture, as you inhale, raise or float your arms wide to the side, palms up, gently curved.
- At the top of your reach, as you begin to exhale, turn your palms over and bring the arms down, palms passing in front of your abdomen.
- Do this three times, in a continuous sweeping motion. On the first sweep, you might picture pure white light flowing down the outside of your body; on the second sweep, imagine pure white light flowing through the inside of your body; and on the third sweep, imagine pure white light flowing both inside and outside—suffusing your entire body.
End the sequence by returning to the Wu Ji posture.
