Ren18 Yu Tang - Ancestral hall of jade
Location: midline, level with 3rd intercostal.
Yu is drawn as three pieces of jade held together. Jade is a beautiful precious stone that has soft and smooth angles that are symbolic of correctness, humility, both soft and hard. It is said to be the creation of dragons sperm. Tang is an ancestral meeting place. So the characters of this point are symbolic of a protected place where we may meet with the essence and wisdom of our ancestors and outer spirit.
Imagine: journeying to a place where you feel safe and protected. This is a private meeting place where only your ancestors may tread. Sit down and enjoy the sunshine and your surroundings. Soak in the peace and harmony that you feel here. Allow images, impressions, thoughts, symbols, and sounds from your ancestors to flow around you, coming and going. You may even invite an ancestor to come and share with you, gaining the inspiration and insight that you need at this time.
