Closing form:.Close your eyes and relax your body. Relieve yourself from whatever you were doing. Calm your mind down and focus on your dantien.
.Breathe deeply three times (3 cycles) into your dantien and gather the chi there (use you mind to "lead" the chi, dont force it). Then overlap your hands on top of other, and place it in front of your dantien.
For men: put your left hand on top of the right hand. Spiral your chi in the dantien, in a counterclockwise direction (facing the clock) 36 times, then clockwise 24 times. Condense the chi from a ball into a dot.
For women: put your right hand on top of the left hand. Spiral your chi in the dantien, in a direction clockwise (facing the clock) 36 times, then counterclockwise 24 times. Condense the chi from a ball into a dot.
.At the end, mentally say to yourself "I am done", then slowly open your eyes.
Optional closing form
(this is optional, use it after you have done the regular closing form):
After chi work, our hands are charged with plenty of fresh chi. Instead of letting it disperse into the atmosphere, we can use it to refresh yourself. After the closing form, rub your hands together until they are hot, this should not take more than a few seconds, since the hands are charged with energy.
.Then use your hands to cup both eyes. Inhale and visualize light going into your eyes. [Visualization works because chi follows the mind. "Wherever the mind goes, the chi follows." Visualizing a light coming in is just as effective as using the mind to lead the chi in.]
Rub your eyes lightly with the root of the thumb (the meaty part) in circles. 8 times for men and 7 times for women. This will energized and brighten your eyes. Rub the hands again if necessary, before continue.
.Then use your hands to rub your face in a circle. 8 times for men and 7 times for women. This will rejuvenate your skin and complexion.
.Brush your hair with your hands from front to back. 8 times for men and 7 times for women.
. Beat teeth together 36 times. This will strengthen your teeth.
. Open your mouth as wide as possible, like a lion roaring. This will release tension trapped in the jaw.
. At the end, you may massage yourself at major acupuncture points. (check in a meridian map)this optional form will rejuvenate yourself, keeping you youthful. It will also strenghten your teeth, and brighten your eyes.If you message yourself afterward, it will also enhanced chi flow.
