Powerful Meditation to create Joy and Bliss


This meditation is based on a wonderfully simple but also richly meaningful haiku by Matsuo Basho,
the most famous poet of Japan's Edo period from 1603 to 1868:
Year after year
... on the monkey's face
a monkey face.
Ha, isn't that great?

Let's play with this haiku a little bit and turn it into a meditation you can use to fill any hectic or empty spots in your life with peace and bliss.




Here are the “how to” details...

Take a long, slow deep breath.

Hold for a second.

Exhale slowly.

Repeat several times until you're clear and still.

Now visualize instead of the monkey's face your own face.

This might be tough at first. Think of looking at your face in the mirror. That should bring up an image or a thought pattern like an image. Either will work.

Once you have your face in mind, breathe it in and out for a few breaths.

Nice and slow breaths.

Nice and deep breaths.

Now instead of your face in the mirror, breathe in your face before you were born.

Hold for a second.

Exhale slowly and completely let go of your face before you were born.

Repeat breathing in your face before you were born and letting go of it until you feel a physical shiver of bliss.

Then repeat as long as you can stand the sheer joy of complete peace of mind, but don't do it at work because you might get fired from your job.

Do not, repeat, do NOT try to understand this meditation intellectually because trying to do that might drive you insane. :)
Well, that wouldn't happen but trying to understand it intellectually isn't going to get you anywhere but to Frustration City. Instead, just do it. And then let go of your face before you were born.

Wow, that's bliss and peace of mind.

Note: This is an extremely powerful meditation so it's worth working with. Don't try it with three wimpy breaths and then give up. Practice it every day.

Once you get it, kaboom, you'll know you now have something for the rest of your life that is very, very special!

Acupressure Points on your Feet for Headaches and Migraines

by Holly Tse, CMP at www.chinesefootreflexology.comIf you get headaches or migraines, here are four acupressure and Chinese Reflexology points that can help you feel better right away.  Learn how to rub your feet for fast pain relief and for long-term improvement of your symptoms. Let’s face it, headaches suck! While I often write eloquently (or so I think!), there’s no other way to describe the stabbing pain that shoots up through your eye, the vise-like grip that radiates from your head to your shoulders or the incessant throbbing that leaves you feeling cranky, crabby and foggy.



If it sounds like I've experienced some killer headaches, your assumption is 100% correct. I've had stabbing migraines, headaches that follow you to sleep and greet you on waking, dull achy head pain, and ocular migraines too.  Fortunately, I learned how to bring my body into balance so that I now can’t even remember when I last had a headache. Here are some good books on Reflexology

The Key to Longevity

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the kidneys are considered the “Root of Life” and when Chinese Medicine refers to an organ, it’s not just the physical organs themselves, but the entire Kidney meridian or energy channel. Think of your Kidney channel as the mega-bank for your life savings.  In this case, your life savings are your life force or Chi (Qi).

When you’re born, your parents make a deposit into your energy savings accountbased on how much energy they have to give.  If your parents are healthy and full of life, you’ll get a bigger deposit than someone whose parents are sickly or lacking in spirit.

As you live your life, you either make depo…

Qigong for Strengthening the Kidneys

In Chinese Medicine, as in reality, there is no way to separate the mind and the body.

The most pronounced emotion related to Kidney Deficiency is fear. This type of imbalance would be marked with unfounded fear and anxiety during everyday life rather than fear relating to true danger. 

Unchecked, it can manifest as infertility, sexual dysfunction, menopause, prostate problems, impaired immunity, chronic inflammation, high blood pressure, heart irregularities and anxiety.


Adrenal glands sit on top of the kidneys and produce adrenaline that participates in the body’s fight/flight/freeze response and cortisol that stimulates stress. Long-term adrenaline and cortisol over production, partly brought on by chronic fear, can lead to adrenal burnout and chronic fatigue.



The kidney meridian starts at the underside center of the foot. It moves to the inside of the foot and circles the ankle. Then it moves up the inside of each leg, through the groin, and up the center of the torso about an inch fr…
