Buddha holds up earth:
-Physically- This movement opens the diaphragms and intercostals of the lungs and stretches the large intestine, both the Metal elements of the body. This allows for a deeper fluid more relaxed breath. Expands the vital capacity
-Energetically- This movement open the lung and large intestine channel on the arms. As the arms come up the lung channel fills to the top of the breath, and then on the exhale the Chi moves into the Large intestine channel. Visualize the lungs glowing with pearly white energy, dissolving any cloudy dark energy.
-Spiritually- This flow allows for a letting go of the old, and opening space for inspiration. The Lungs hold grief and sadness, when we practice this flow with the color in mind those energies transform.
