The Golden Ball Meditation relates to the Eight Extraordinary Meridians, which helps regulate the flow of energy throughout the body.
The Eight Extraordinary Meridians do this by connecting the main meridians and by serving as reservoirs of energy. Their connections ensure that blood, fluids, and Qi flows smoothly throughout the body. By serving as reservoirs of energy, the Extraordinary Meridians, can supply deficiencies or absorb excesses in the main meridians. For deeper explanation and enhancement of your growing Qigong Practice, you may want to refer to Chris’ book, Qigong for Self-Refinement.
This meditation is the Golden Ball Meditation, also known as Collecting Yang Energy, stimulates the 8 Extraordinary Vessels with the flow of Qi throughout the body and in all the regular meridians. Starting in your WuJi Posture, you visualize the air around you as Golden Energy, gather this energy, and disperse. The movement of this Meditation is fluid and synchronized with your breath. It will leave you feeling refreshed and renewed.
