This special powerful standing meditation, “The Dragon Stands Between Heaven and Earth,” is a Qigong posture that can be used to strengthen metabolism function, boost your energy levels, decrease stress and promote concentration and alertness, and promote weight loss.
Begin by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and your knees slightly bent. Raise your arms to chest level, and make two fists. Point your thumbs toward each other about six inches in front of you. Relax your arms, but keep your hands at this height. Breathing and relaxing your entire body, close your eyes, and imagine you are a dragon standing between Heaven and Earth.
Hold this posture as long as you can. That’s all there is to it! On one hand, it is easy, because there is no movement to learn. On the other hand, it is difficult to do “nothing,” to let your mind be peaceful to restore that essential body-mind-spirit connection for total health.
Thank you for this, I have been doing the standing for about a year but this is a new posture to me. I will do it.
Wonderful. Keep us posted on your progress. You will love the impact of this posture on your entire being.

Does this posture increase strength ?
This posture will help you build up your Qi. Begin by standing for a few minutes, then as you develop your Qigong practice, stand longer. The longer you hold the posture, the more benefits you will receive.
First time I have seen this stance and Master Nan Lu. he is very intriguing. What is the form of Taiji mentioned in the bonus?

Can you tell me – if the heart is the supreme sovereign and represented as the sun in the Chinese system, am I right in thinking that the brain is represented as the moon?
