Since you are an extraordinary person,
From an anatomical perspective, these vessels have some physiological relationships according to Fu Xi Wen. The Ren has a strong relationship with the arteries, veins, and lymphatic system. The Du has a strong relationship to the entire nervous system. The Chong has a strong relationship with the aorta and the large arteries of the torso. It is also known as The Sea of Blood. The Yang and Yin Qiao have a strong relationship with the sympathetic nervous system. And the Yang and Yin Wei have a strong relationship with the parasympathetic nervous system. The Dai Mai is a major nervous system connector for enervating the legs.
These channels also have energetic counterparts. The traditional Chinese meridian description of the Ren is that it starts at the perineum anterior to the anus and then runs up the middle of the abdomen and chest to the middle of the bottom jaw. The Du is said to start at the Kidney organs and then connects to the spine at the coccyx and runs up the spine and around the top of the head to the middle of the top jaw. The Dai mai is said to wrap around the waist at the level of the hip bones and is therefore also called the Belt vessel.
In Fu Xi Wen, we look at these extraordinary vessels differently. While they have these physical as well as Chinese meridian associations, they also serve a fundamentally important role energetically tying together the energetic structure into a stable whole.
Extraordinary Vessels Defined and Located
Extraordinary Vessels are special lines of force. These vessels are defined in Fu Xi Wen accordingly. The Ren Mai is a special centerline line of force that crosses the middle of the body as it passes from North to South. It begins in the center of the energetic structure at the lowest point of the North and then rises to the highest point at the center of the energetic structure in the South.
The Du Mai is the mirror opposite in that it starts at the lowest level of the center of the South and rises to the highest point in the center of the energetic structure in the North.
The Dai Mai is a special line of force that runs across the middle of the body at the level of the waist from the South East corner of the energetic grid to the North West corner. It strangely has no mirror line.
The Yin Qiao consists of two diagonal crisscrossing lines in the North edge of the energetic structure. These lines start at the top and bottom corners of the grid and end at the corners. The Yang Qiao consists of two diagonal lines of force crisscrossing at the Southern edge of the energetic structure.
The Yin Wei consists of two diagonal
lines of force crisscrossing in the Eastern side of the energetic
structure from top to bottom of the grid. The Yang Wei consists of
The Chong Mai consists of two crisscrossing lines of force that start at the top of the Southern corners and connect to the bottom of the Northern corners. They crisscross in the abdomen inside the uterus for women. The Chong Mai is therefore an essential channel for fertility.
Traditionally, the Extraordinary Vessels are treated for balance issues, pain issues, fertility, nerve problems, and paralysis. Except in the case of fertility and via the shortcuts discussed in the chapter “Spiritual Anatomy”, I generally do not treat the Extraordinary Vessels. This is more a function of time and focus and not because I do not value them. Because these are system-level vessels that tie together the entire energetic structure, they may just be the most powerful lines of force to treat from a system theory perspective. One day, I will have time to explore them more thoroughly.
In the meantime, go ahead, stand up and feel for the subtle Qi of these channels. When you find them, stick an Earth frequency into these channels in the angle described and you will feel the energy move in the Chinese meridian channel system as it was described thousands of years ago. May this be the beginning of many discoveries you share with the entire community via the Fu Xi Wen Forums.
