Open the Door of Life

Open the Door of Life

Taoists believe that stimulating certain points in the body and/or using those points to relate to nature sparks vitality and health. For example, the energy of the moon can be absorbed through a point along the lower lumber called the “Door of Life.” This is a point between the kidneys that can be stimulated through massage or meditation.

Focusing on the door of life helps the kidneys awaken to the energy of nature. Because the kidneys regulate the water element and sexual energy in the body, the Door of Life is a natural point to draw in the energy of the moon, which also relates to these things.

The kidneys are also said to be like the batteries of the body. When they feel charged up, they can perform their many functions, including the growth of bone marrow.
