Liù Zì Jué 六字訣 – Six Sounds – Part 3

The next sound is Hē 呵. We stand relaxed with our back straight and our arms at our sides. We then bend the knees and bring up both hands with the palms facing each other. When the hands are at chest height, we bend the elbows and start to make the Hē sound. As we do so, we turn the palms to face outwards and push out, and at the same time, we slowly straighten the legs. At the end, we will have not more breath to make the Hē sound, our arms should be out to the sides with the palms facing outwards and the legs completely straight. When we are at the end of our breathe and at the end of the sound, then we close the arms with the arms facing in and bend the knees and breathe in through the nose. Finally, we return to the original position. We then repeat the Hē sound again.

The Hē sound is good for the heart. The arms open the chest, where the heart is making this area stronger. We can repeat this around 10 times. Remember, when we are making these sounds, they must come from the internal body, and make sure you are breathing out when making the sound.
