This is an incredible energy technique that you can use by itself as well as including it in your daily 5-minute routine. I’ve used it many times around 3 pmwhen my energy runs out and my brain fogs up. It works!

The Daily Energy Routine (continued) – the Wayne Cook Posture

When you are stressed or exhausted your meridians begin to run backward so you will be compelled to rest. Tapping or massaging your K-27 points can often restore the natural direction of the meridian flow. But in more extreme cases, not only do the meridians run backward, but their energies may become quite chaotic. The Wayne Cook Posture reorders these chaotic, scrambled energies.

This procedure is named to honor Wayne Cook, a pioneering researcher of bioenergetics force fields, who invented the approach which has been modified by Donna Eden into the form presented here.

It is very powerful as it will calm you, bring order to your thinking and help you better understand confront the problems that you face.  I have used it to help me when my brain feels “scrambled” after working intensely on the computer for several hours, or focusing keenly on a problem whose solution eludes me!

The Wayne Cook Posture will:

  • Untangle inner chaos
  • See with better perspective
  • Focus your mind more effectively
  • Think more clearly
  • Learn more proficiently

Even more exciting is that this technique is effective even when you are so upset that you cannot quit crying, you find yourself snapping or yelling at others, you are sinking into despair or feeling that you are beyond exhaustion. This posture helps process stress hormones. And the effect is almost immediate, you will begin to feel less crazy and less overwhelmed.

To do the Wayne Cook Posture, sit in a chair with your spine straight (time—about 90 seconds):

  1. Place your left foot over your right knee. Wrap your right hand around the front of your left ankle and your left hand over the ball of your left foot, with your fingers curled around the sides of the foot.
  2. Breath in slowly through your nose, letting the breath life your body as you breathe in. At the same time, pull your leg toward you, creating a stretch. As you exhale, breathe out of your mouth slowly, letting your body relax. Repeat this slow breathing and stretching four or five times.
  3. Switch to the other foot and reverse the hand positions (left hand around front of right ankle, right hand over ball of right food). Again breath slowly and stretching four or five times.
  4. Uncross your legs and “steeple” your fingertips together so they form a pyramid in front of your chest. Then bring your thumbs to rest on your “third eye,” just above the bridge of your nose. Breath slowly and deeply about three or four full breaths.
  5. On the last exhalation, curl your fingers into the middle of your forehead and separate them, firmly and pleasantly, pulling across your forehead to your temples.
  6. Slowly bring your hands down in front of you. Surrender into your own breathing.
