The second chakra, which is the energetic center of sexuality, is associated with the little finger. It deals with interpersonal relationships and the ability to communicate. Chinese practitioners find the heart meridian to be in this finger. Joyful, fulfilling relationships not only warm the heart, but also nourish and strengthen it. In turn, strong heart energy gives us the ability to be happy. Our mood, which is always the sum of present feelings, can be compared to the waves on the surface of a lake. (They are rhythmically-harmonious or vehement; the water is clear and clean, or shallow, heavy, dark, and dirty).
Thus the importance of the following Little Finger Exercise:
1. Sit or lie down. Encircle your left little finger with the four fingers of your right hand. Close your eyes. Visualize you are sitting by the sea and observing the waves—they come toward you, and roll back out and disappear. The same applies to your feelings, moods, and relationships with others.
2. Bring awareness to giving and receiving love. You only receive as much love as you can unconditionally give. This doesn’t necessarily mean great deeds. A friendly, warm heart for fellow human beings, animals, plants, water, air, and earth are entirely enough.
3. Happily think of someone that might need some encouragement. Believe in this individual’s abilities and good heart. Imagine entire scenes in which this person is cheerful and loving themselves.
4. Now visualize yourself radiating from goodwill and unconditional love throughout your body. If difficult, have patience. Time will come when your heart will overflow with joy.
5. Continue holding your little finger for a while and feel the flowing warmth. Then encircle your right finger and hold it for the same amount of time.
