Little Finger Energy #5 Meditation

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).

Little Finger Energy #5 Meditation

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.Little Finger Energy #5 Meditation

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.

Ring Finger Energy #4 Meditation

 

The ring finger is associated with the Root Chakra, which rules the pelvic floor.  This force gives stamina, staying power, and the power to be assertive.

Liver and triple warmer meridians are also associated with the ring finger.  The Liver meridian gives a person patience, serenity, hope and vision for the future.  The triple warmer rules protective body functions, including the immune system.  This finger provides stability.

Ring Finger Energy #4 Meditation

 

1.  Sit or lie down.  Encircle left finger with the four fingers of your right hand.  Close your eyes.

1.  Imagine bare earth as a desert that is dried out from being exposed to the sun.

2.  Now imagine fertile earth, with little plants, bigger plants. Focus on one single seed deep within the Earth.

3.  With every breath, something move inside until the seed bursts and a shoot stretches into the light.

4.  Visualize a young tree sprouting roots deep into the earth.  The tree blooms every year and bares fruit.

5.  Like the tree, we want to give ourselves completely to life and every year our inner development continues.  We decisively influence whether it is joyful or sorrowful.

7.  Keep holding your left finger for a while and feel the flowing warmth.  Then encircle your right finger and hold it for the same amount of time.
