The microcosmic orbit is an ancient Chinese energy cultivation technique. This practice is usually done for at least 30 minutes, and leads to purification of the body physically, mentally, and spiritually, improving health and longevity. To start, inhale while focusing healing light energy as it enters the lower belly. Upon the exhale, move the healing energy down to the next point. Once the energy has reached the bottom of the torso, the energy is directed up the spine to the top of the head and back down to the belly. Thus the circle continues. Benefits are especially obvious if this is done every day for 30 days.
