Make a qi ball that produces a tingling, or electric, sensation between your palms. Breathe in the qi from the qi ball from your left arm at the same time as you inhale. Visualize the qi ball moving through your left arm and into your right arm as you inhale, and you will experience qi sensations moving from your forearm to your elbow, and on to your shoulder (Figure 3-1).
When your ability becomes more advanced, you will only need to inhale once to bring the qi ball through your left arm up to the inside of your chest, and to exhale once to bring it down to your right arm. You will need to be able to complete this same movement in the opposite direction as well. When you are able to let the qi ball circle through your arms, this means that you have reached the first step.
Hold and strengthen the qi ball inside your chest. The Anahata Chakra (from Yoga) can be strengthed this way. These exercises will eventually lead to mastery of the Macrocosmic Orbit method, which will be explained in Part Two.
