GB26 Dai Mai – To carry the vital circulation
Location: directly below Lv13, below the end of the 11th floating rib, level with umbilicus. This point allows us to put our plans into action. It combines the decisions of the Gall Bladder with the connections to all the channels via the Dai Mai.
It helps to promote communication between the upper and lower jiao – the heart and the kidneys by easing constraint in the centre. When it is too tight our decisions are shaped from the head not from our deeper sense of wisdom.
So this point is important for allowing our decisions to be shaped from our deeper sense of self and wisdom.
Visualisation: Breathe into your belly. Become aware of the sensations in your belly. (pause) Think of a major decision you are currently facing and allow you mind to drift through possibilities until you get a distinct gut feeling about a specific direction to take. This gut feeling should feel right, from your very core.
