GB15 Tou lin qi – Kindly allowing tears to flow / Head before crying / Head directed by kind waters
Location: directly above the centre of the eyes, 0.5 cun within the hairline.
The characters of this point relate to the head, to treat kindly, water and a man standing uprightly. This is symbolic of weeping being treated with gentleness. Tears can help us process and let go of the past in order to embark on a new path, just as a rain shower can bring forward new life from a parched land. In order to make new decisions and to take action we need to let go of the past. Tears can help us through this process.
Exercise: Think about an aspect of your life that you have not let go of or something you feel sad about. When you are ready allow yourself to let go while I hold this point.
