Touching the Points to Activate Energy
To enhance the feeling of energy at organs, bones, or acupuncture-points of the body, touch that point with your hand and focus behind the point of contact. As an example, one can charge up the points before the Microcosmic Orbit meditation. One can also put the hands on the organs during the inner smile meditation.
Place the palm so that the Lao Gung point (or roughly the center point) of your palm is directly over the organ or acupuncture. Another method is to simply touch the point with the three middle fingers where it may be uncomfortable to use the palm.
The hands have a lot of energy flowing into them, they feel sensitive, and they can help guide energy to focus attention on specific areas. The more you focus on each point, the more energy gathers there. Eventually, one becomes sensitive to the feeling of energy at each center. Especially in the beginning, touching the energy centers of the Microcosmic Orbit helps immensely.
