Sì Shén Cōng 四神聰– Part 3
It is not easy to develop our Qì to push up to the Bǎihuì point 百會穴 and so it is not easy to open this acupuncture point. It is not easy to open because around the Bǎihuì point there are four guards. We call these Sì Shén Cōng 四神聰. At there centre is the Bǎihuì point and so there are four points around it covering four directions. “Sì 四” means “Four”, “Shén 神” means “Spirit” and “Cōng 聰” means “Smart”. So there are “Four Smart Spirits” guarding the Bǎihuì point. The Bǎihuì point is very important. If it is hit, then the damage will affect the brain and so damage our minds. In contrast, if we have more Qì in here, it makes us smarter, able to see things more clearly, understand things and find harmony and enlightenment.
As I have said it is not easy to open the Bǎihuì and it is much harder than opening other areas like the Lower Dāntián 下丹田 and Middle Dāntián 中丹田. If the Bǎihuì opens, then the Sky Eye will open, and we will be able to sense, feel and predict many things. However, it is not only the Bǎihuì that opens, the Sì Shén Cōng need to opened as well. This means, if we have enough Qì the top of the head will be opened.
The Bǎihuì and the Sì Shén Cōng are actually the Upper Dāntián 上丹田. So if we practise our Qìgōng to make our Bǎihuì open, so the Baihui area will be bigger and this is because the Sì Shén Cōng is there and be opened as well. So keep practising so one day you can open them!
