Page 3 - Six Healing Sounds


Adding the Energy Channels

In all the following, inhale through the nose, and silently make the sounds as you exhale through the mouth.

Liver - shooo sound. On the exhalation silently make the sound, and by using the breath-mind-imagination, lead and guide the qi from the inner sides of the big toes up the insides of the thighs, into the abdomen, up to the throat, eyes, forehead, to the crown of the head; then back down into the lungs, then down the inner sides of the arms, ending in the outer tips of the thumbs. Then inhale. Do six times.

Heart - haaaw sound. Starting on the exhalation, and by using the breath-mind-imagination, lead and guide the qi from the outer sides of the big toes, up the inner legs into the abdomen to the upper chest, armpits, and along the inner arms to the inside tips of the little fingers. Then inhale. Do six times.

Spleen - whooo sound. On the exhalation, guide the qi upward from the outer sides of the big toes, up the inner-legs into the abdomen to the stomach, then into upper chest where it divides into two flows: 1. Bring the qi to the throat and under the tongue. 2. At the same time, move the qi into the inner arms down to the inside tips of the little fingers. Then inhale. Do six times.

Lungs - tzzz sound. On the exhalation, guide the qi upward from the inner sides of the big toes, up the inner legs, into the abdomen, into the lungs; then down the inner arms to the inner portions of the tips of both thumbs (Lung-11 acupressure point). Then inhale. Do six times.

Kidney - chway sound. On the exhalation, guide the qi upward from the balls of the feet (Kidney-1 point), through the inner thighs, along the spine, into the kidneys, into the chest, down the inner arms into the tips of the middle fingers (Pericardium-9). Then inhale. Do six times.

Triple Burner - sheee (silent) sound. Starting on the exhalation, guide the qi upward from the outer tips of the fourth toes (Gall Bladder-44) along the outer legs, into the sides of the torso, to the sides of the neck and into the head; then down the sides of the head, neck, shoulders, and backs of the arms to the outside tips of the ring fingers (Triple Burner-1) .

Continue on the Inhalation by Going In Reverse: move the qi back from the tips of the ring fingers, up the backs of the arms, to the shoulders, then neck, to the head, down the sides of head, neck, sides of torso into the outer legs to finish where you started at the ends of the fourth toes (GB-44). Do six times.

 

What Can These Sounds Do For You?

Traditional Chinese Medicine believes that mental and physical problems are caused by qi-energy imbalances in the organs and meridians. Since the Five Sounds are said to rectify such imbalances, it is easy to see why this qigong practice has become so popular in modern China. Here are some generalities from the literature:

The Liver helps control the quality of the blood, and supports the eyesight.

The Heart controls the circulation of blood. The Heart energy center also is the location of fire, which if in excess can bring about the stagnation or deficiency of the blood, as well as profoundly affecting how well the mind is working. Some suggest that the use of sound will assist in the healing of heart diseases as well as mental disturbances.

Spleen-Stomach. The stomach digests and the spleen helps transport the nutrients and the related qi-energy of food.

Lungs. Of all the five organ-systems what is called The Lung is the most in contact with the outer world with all its negative pathogenic influences, such as germs, viruses, and illness causing pollutants. Also the lungs bring in the rich qi of oxygen in the air, which is so absolutely vital for life itself.

The Kidneys oversee many functions needed for well-being. Some of the most important are reproduction, urination, general vitality, and psychological factors such as memory.

The Triple Burner refers to the functioningnot the physicalityof the organs of the body. The Upper Burner has the lungs, heart and the mind. The Middle Burner has the spleen pancreas stomach; and the liver. Here food is metabolized for energy and cell growth. The Lower Burner refers to the area of the kidneys, bladder, and intestines; areas that deal with the elimination of waste. The sound used for the Triple Burner aids in harmonizing all of these functions.

Another primary application of the Five Healing Sounds is to aid in correcting any emotional disharmony caused by the stresses of modern life.
