100 Days Sitting. Day 79. Pool of Saliva

Imagine practicing Qigong just for the saliva benefits. What do I mean by that? Well in the previous sessions we established that the Descending Bridge builds an energetic connection for two of the main energy channels of the body, the Conception and the Governing Vessels.

When we sustain the connection of this bridge we engage the glands in the mouth to produce saliva. The saliva that is produce should not be spit out. Actually Taoist believe this substance to be quite valuable and healing. Qigong practitioners and meditators know that substance is the water Qi that cools the fire Qi.

When you are training, try to pay close attention to these key elements: the tip of the tongue at the roof of the mouth, and the accumulation of saliva. Swallow this with the intention of nourishing your organs and digestive system. Know this as water Qi cooling the fire Qi.
