Taiji Ruler Basic Circling to Tonify or Detox
The Taiji Ruler System is unique in that it has methods for detoxing the Qi as well as Tonifying the Qi . The circle simply follows the natural flow of eating or vomiting . Your stomach Chi naturally descends. When it Ascends then it causes the body to reverse the peristaltic flow and force the toxins out of the body. We can reinforce the natural flow in either direction via the circling of the Chih or Ruler. When we inhale the palms contract and draw in at pericardium 8/Lao Kong point. This draws Qi into the hands and towards the body. It is inhaled as our hands come upward and then we sink the Qi to our Dan Tian with the downward sinking and propping. The mind is activated and deactivated to follow these two actions and support them. When the mind is emptied and the heart is emptied then the Qi will naturally descend to the Dan Tian. This is a basic exercise and is used to motivate the mobilization of the Qi through the Ren and Du Vessels where the prenatal Qi mixes with the postnatal Qi and is distributed throughout the body. This is an advanced practice even though the exercise is basic. All basic exercises yield advanced skills when they are given their proper attention. This system acknowledges that the energy is the most important area of work and that movements and forms are secondary to true skill.
