Ki15 Zhong Zhu – Flowing from the centre
Location: 1 cun below umbillicus, 0.5 cun lateral of midline.
The character Zhong relates to an arrow striking the middle of a target – symbolic of balance, harmony and the middle way. When we stand in the centre we can get a sense of the whole. In integrating the whole we can find the right path. Flowing from our centre is extremely important in life. When we do not flow from our core, our life will not reflect of our core, it will feel fake or wrong. It is hard to feel stable and centred when we do not flow from the core. This point helps us to flow and move through life, expressing ourselves from our centre.
