In traditional Chinese Medicine, there are a series of spiritual Acupressure points in the neck region, which tend to get blocked called the “Windows of the Sky”. Chronic tension can settle into the neck, and literally strangle your aliveness or spirit.
The video clip below, presents three powerful acupressure techniques for opening these spiritual acupressure points. I believe this is essential to practice daily for balancing chronic fatigue, the thyroid gland, and for long life.
Neck Tension & Thyroid Problems: The Windows of the Sky acupressure points are located in your neck, which holds the weight of your head and where so many of the meridians pathways cross. When you are under stress, your neck muscles constrict, affecting your ability to be creative and express yourself. The neck houses the thyroid gland, which balances your metabolism. When tension accumulates and becomes chronic, these points block your healing energy, which can cause chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and thyroid problems.
Spiritual Acupressure Points? I want you to understand the meaning, reason, purpose, and function of Spiritual Acupressure Points. Let’s start with what a point is — a specific spot or gateway where the healing energy of your body tends to get blocked. These points are also where you can most effectively channel energy to heal yourself and others.
What’s Spiritual about these points? The spiritual significance of the Windows of the Sky points is that they govern harmony between your mind and body. When healing energy flows through the Windows of the Sky, your spirit and aliveness makes you happy, inspired, satisfied, and fulfilled.
Not a Spiritual Person? A reason so many people do not relate spiritually is simple and makes sense. If a person’s neck is chronically tight, constructing the energy flow between the mind and body, then this person may not be in touch with how interconnected and miraculous life is. If the energy cannot get through the neck into the higher centers of the brain, a person cannot fully experience spirituality, aliveness, and the wonders of life.
Regaining your Spirituality: Chronic neck tension can be released over time by using these acupressure techniques daily while breathing deeply, and relaxing afterwards. Releasing the Windows of the Sky points and the flow of energy, increases mind and body awareness. After a while, this same blocked person will begin to have some petty amazing, wonderful experiences.
I hope and pray with all my heart and soul that this explanation motivates you to practice this Acupressure routine daily for keeping your Windows of the Sky open for preventing thousands of diseases and enabling you to obtain long life.
