While acupuncture and acupressure are time honored traditions of clearing energy channels for better health, it is a lesser known fact that they are also aids to spiritual development. If finding an acupuncturist who knows how to open the spiritual channels is a challenge, or you don’t like needles, you can perform your own acupressure sessions right at home, or any where you happen to be.
Known as finger acupuncture, tsubo point clearing and energy clearing, acupressure involves finger massage or the use of crystal wands to activate certain acupuncture points. In some situations electrical stimulation is used. This provides neuro-stimulation of the tsubo points along the nerve and vigorous pathways in the body.
While this brings about balance in the systems of the body and that can rule to better spiritual connections, there are certain acupressure points that are effective in stimulating your intuition and spiritual channels.
To effectively shift energy from the cerebral cortex (basically the grey brain matter) to the medulla oblongata (the base of the brain just above your spine) you should work certain points that we will discuss in a bit. The cerebrum (cerebral cortex) hosts most of our conscious movements and activities, while the medulla is the center of our ANS-the autonomic nervous system. It is also houses the link to our intuitive sensitivities. Within this area of the body is a special energy gate that allows the flow of spiritual energy.
Now let’s look at the stimulation points where you will apply the acupressure. The Bladder Meridians, or bladder energy pathways have points known as BL9 or Yuzhen. These points are found on either side of the occipital bone. The bone found at the back and the base of your skull. Then you place your fingers on the back of your head, typically you find a slight dent where the proper point is located and if you draw an imaginary line around your head at the top of your ears, you will be in about the proper place.
Gently massaging these points and applying light pressure for about 30 seconds will help create a shift from the active mind into the subconscious mind of the medulla and strengthen intuitive roles. It will slow down metabolism and the respiratory system and can become a cause for you to shift consciousness easily and quickly. If the flow of energy is poor in this area, you may feel a slight soreness.
Two more vigorous pathways are important to developing your intuitive channels, the Conception and Governing Meridians. The Governing Meridian flows up the spine, over the head and ends in the roof of the mouth. The Conception Meridian flows up the front of the body ending at the tip of the tongue. They are connected at the base of the body at a point called Hui Yin. It is located between the anus and the genitals in the perineum. When stimulated it creates a connection between the two meridians and can stimulate the third eye and other intuitive channels. Another way to stimulate this point is by the Kegel exercises known to most women. This isn’t as effective as direct acupressure, but it is easily practiced where ever you are. While either stimulating the point of doing the Kegel contractions, keep the top of the tongue against the roof of the mouth just behind the front teeth. This helps link the two circuits.
Linking these circuits stimulates the intuitive faculties and is also recommended in some yogic and meditation practices.
