The Kidneys’ Sound

• Energy: Gathering Inward
• Associated Organ: Bladder
• Element: Water
• Season: Winter
• Color: Black or Dark Blue
• Negative emotions: Fear
• Positive emotions: Gentleness
• Sound: “woooo” (through the lips as though blowing out a candle)


With this movement of the Six Healing Sounds qigong set, inhale as you lightly curve the spine forward and transition the hands to hold your knees. Exhale while softly making the “woooo” sound with the lips lightly pursing as if you were blowing out a candle. While making the Kidneys’ sound pull with the hands, curving the back further and pressing the kidneys up and back. This movement is an excellent massage for the organs. As you inhale let the spine straighten and transfer the hands back to the thighs. Rest here for three breaths with the palms facing up. When you exhale during these interim breaths do not create the sound but continue to hear it in your mind. Try to engage with as many of the visualization aspects a you can without them becoming a distraction.

Repeat this movement of the Six Healing Sounds qigong three or more times.
