I have written about “Instant Meditation” in Taijiquan: Through the Western Gate and in earlier blog posts. This video walks you through the simple but powerful technique of accessing energetic coherence by pointing and reaching with your index fingers.
Energetic coherence is characteristic of a heightened state of body/mind/spirit integration. Wholeness. It calms the nervous system and allows us to move quickly into a transrational state of consciousness. This whole-body energetic connection allows us to realize the effortless authentic power that is taijiquan. (see
Energetic Coherence Demonstration)
A heightened state of body/mind/spirit coherence enables us to do things we can’t in a more fragmented state. In stillness it helps us access states of consciousness that are unavailable when our minds are cluttered by the noise of an unbalanced nervous system.
