Energy Medicine techniques are based on the body's energy systems: meridians, chakras, and the energy field. Donna Eden has devised a Daily Energy Routine that will help to fine tune your body's energy systems.

Daily Energy Routine

I. The Three Thumps

A. K-27 Points (just below center of collarbone,)

• Energize you if you are feeling drowsy
• Focus you if you are having difficulty concentrating
• Flip your energies around if they are flowing backwards

Place fingers on collarbone. Slide them inward toward the center and find the bumps where they stop. Move your fingers down about an inch. Most people have a slight indent here that their fingers will drop into. Cross your hands if you wish; tap and/or massage K-27 points while breathing deeply in through your nose and out through your mouth. Continue for about twenty seconds. If using one hand, tap on both points with thumb and fingers.

B. Thymus Gland

• Stimulate all of your energies
• Boost your immune system
• Increase your strength and vitality

Move your fingers down a couple of inches and into the center of your sternum after tapping K-27. As you breathe deeply, firmly tap your thymus point with the four fingers of each hand for about 20 seconds.

C. Spleen Neurolymphatic Points

• Lift your energy level
• Balance your blood chemistry
• Strengthen your immune system

Move your fingers down from your thymus out to your nipples, and straight down to beneath your breasts. Then move them down over the next rib. Tap firmly with several fingers for about 15 seconds, breathing deeply in through your nose and out through your mouth. Move fingers laterally to the side of the body, underneath the arms on the bra line. Tap with several fingers for 15-20 seconds.

II. Cross Crawl

• Feel more balanced
• Think more clearly
• Improve your coordination
• Harmonize your energies

While standing, lift your right arm and left leg simultaneously. As you let them down, raise your left arm and right leg. If you are confined to a wheelchair, lift your knees to the opposite elbows, or twist your upper torso so your arm passes over the midline of your body. Repeat, exaggerating the lift of your leg and the swing of your arm across the midline to the opposite side of you body. Continue in this exaggerated march for at least a minute, again, breathing deeply in through your nose and out through your mouth.

III. Wayne Cook Posture

• Untangle inner chaos
• See with better perspective
• Focus your mind more effectively
• Think more clearly
• Learn more proficiently

Sit in a chair with your spine straight. Place right foot over left knee. Wrap left hand around right ankle and right hand around the ball of your right foot. Breathe in slowly through your nose, letting the breath lift your body as you breathe in. At the same time, pull your leg toward you, creating a stretch. As you exhale, breathe out of your mouth slowly, letting your body relax. Repeat this slow breathing and stretching four or five times. Switch to the other foot. Place left foot over right knee. Wrap right hand around left ankle and left hand around ball of left foot. Use the same breathing. Uncross your legs and place your fingertips together forming a pyramid. Bring your thumbs to rest on your “third eye,” just above the bridge of your nose. Breathe slowly in through your nose. The breathe out through your mouth, allowing your thumbs to separate slowly across your forehead, pulling the skin. Bring thumbs back to third eye position. Slowly bring hands down in front of you, holding them in a prayer position while breathing deeply.

IV. Crown Pull

• Releases mental congestion
• Refreshes the mind
• Opens the crown chakra to higher inspiration

Place your thumbs at your temples on the side of your head. Curl your fingers and rest your fingertips just above the center of your eyebrows. Slowly, and with some pressure, pull your fingers apart so that you can stretch the skin just above your eyebrows. Rest your fingertips at the center of your forehead and repeat the stretch. Rest your fingertips at your hairline and
repeat the stretch. Continue this pattern with your fingers curled and pushing in at each of the following locations: a) fingers at the top of your head, with your little fingers at the hairline. Push down with some pressure and pull your hands away from one another, as if pulling your head apart; b) Fingers at the center of your head, again pushing down and pulling your hands away from one another; c) Fingers over the curve at the back of your head, again using the same stretch. Repeat each of these stretches one or more times.

V. Neurolymphatic Reflex Points and/or
VI. Spinal Flush

• Energize you
• Send toxins to your body’s waste removal systems
• Clear stagnant energies from your body

Congested neurolymphatic reflex points feel sore when massaged. For that reason, they are easy to locate. Massaging them is a way to clear them and allow the energy that has been blocked to flow again. Do with a friend or on your own, finding as many points on the trunk of your body, both front and back, as you can. If working with a partner, focus on the area close to the spine, massaging between the vertebrae. Complete by sweeping the energies down your partner’s body (“credit card swipe”) from shoulder to sacrum or feet two or three times.

VII. Zip Up/ Hook-Up

• Feel more confident and positive about yourself and your world
• Think more clearly
• Tap your inner strengths
• Protect yourself from negative energies that may be around you

Briskly tap your K-27 points to assure that your meridians are moving in a forward direction. Place your hand at the bottom end of the central meridian, which is at your pubic bone. Inhale deeply as you simultaneously move your hand with deliberation straight up the center of your body to your lower lip. Repeat 3 times. Place the middle finger of one hand between the eyebrows, and the middle finger of the other hand over the belly button. Gently press in, pull up, and hold for about 20 seconds.
