Though I have written about an energy system called the Radiant Circuits a few times before, I cannot bring them up too many times, especially in this day and age. The Radiant Circuit energy system consists of energy pathways in the body that help us to experience strength, vitality, and exhilaration. When we strengthen this system, we ignite joy, gratitude, and love, and working with them on a regular basis can help create new habits that keep us in a healthy and happy place.
There are many ways to activate these energies that were first described thousands of years ago in Traditional Chinese Medicine texts. Being in gratitude, smiling, laughing, walking in nature, or listening to music naturally activates them, but there are also some Eden Energy Medicine exercises that can help as well.
A great first step in activating the Radiant Circuits is to do a combination of exercises called the Blow Out, Zip Up, and Hook Up. To begin, bring your arms to either side of your body and make fists, imagining that all your frustrations and negative feelings are in your hands. On an inhale, bring your arms above your head, and on an exhale, bring them down quickly and open your fists, either using the “shhh” sound or the name of what is upsetting you. Repeat three times and on the last movement, bring your hands down slowly and deliberately and let it all go. To Zip Up, place both hands over your pubic bone, and trace straight up the center of the front of your body to your bottom lip. Then, imagine a lock and key, and lock the meridian you just traced (Central Meridian) at your bottom lip. For the last exercise in the combination, The Hook Up, place one finger in your belly button and the other between your eyebrows on the bridge of your nose, push in and pull both points up, and take a few deep breaths.
