Tenth Energy Center Tongue to the Palate

In the beginning, place the tip of your tongue just behind your front teeth (later you will transmit more energy if you place it in the middle of the soft palate or even further back along the roof of the mouth). The palate links the front and back channels, and the tongue on the palate links the switch that enables the energy to flow in a complete circuit. If you watch sleeping babies you will see that often they keep their tongue on the roof of their mouths. They know instinctively how to circulate the microcosmic orbit as their yin and yang energy is still naturally balanced. Even thumb sucking may be an attempt to connect the channels!

When you put your tongue to your palate you may feel sensations, or you may feel nothing. If you feel a small vibration, or your tongue moves back and forth involuntarily, chances are you have completed the orbit. Some people, however, do not feel sensations. If you do not feel sensation, but your health has improved, and you feel lighter, less worried, and more energetic, you probably completed the orbit.
