The Microcosmic Orbit is the major energy circuit of the body that connects the main Yin and Yang channels. The circulation of chi in the Orbit is the fundamental practice of the UHT.


Microcosmic Orbit

The Inner Smile and the Six Healing Sounds will gradually increase your energy of life force. To use it effectively for further healing and spiritual growth it should circulate through specific pathways in our body – the acupuncture meridians.

The energy circuit connecting two major acupuncture meridians – the Conception meridian and the Governing meridian – is called the Microcosmic Orbit. All other meridians are connected with these two, receive chi from them and deliver it to the internal organs, just like electric wires transfer energy from the main line to separate houses and apartments. We can direct our chi in the Microcosmic Orbit by relaxing and concentrating .

The Governing meridian is the major Yang channel in our body. It begins at the perineum, goes through the sacrum and up the spine to the neck, reaches the crown of the head and runs down the face to the hard palate.

The Conception meridian, the major Yin channel, also has its starting point at the perineum, but runs upward the midline of the body. Passing the sternum it enters the throat and ends at the tip of the tongue.

When you touch the hard palate with the tip of your tongue you connect the Conception and the Governing meridians in the circuit, enabling chi to move in the Microcosmic Orbit.
There are 14 energy centers in the Microcosmic Orbit, each responsible for nourishing certain organs and producing specific emotional reactions. Whether these centers are open or closed for the free flow of chi defines our interactions with the outer world and with ourselves. For example, the perineum center. When it is open, we feel rooted, calm and well-grounded, we feel safe within ourselves and safe as to the changes coming from the outside. If this center is closed for the smooth flow of chi, an individual is afraid of changes. Or the heart center. If it is close, we can indulge in self-pity for ourselves, unloved and lonely. We can feel depressed and deceived. The worst is a curious combination of low self-esteem and pride. When the heart center is open, there comes a constant feeling of love and joy, respect and happiness along with gratitude – the best catalyst for spiritual growth.

Having learnt to move chi in the Orbit, you can keep its flow stable, that is to direct your life energy from parts of your body with excessive chi to those energy deficient. But actually the Microcosmic Orbit benefits extend to ageing prevention and healing a whole range of diseases – from hypertension, insomnia and headaches to arthritis. Let alone the fact that it traverses all the glands, nourishing and balancing them, which dramatically improves the quality of our physical and psychological health.
