THE HOOK UP is one of my (Cara) go-to’s when my energy needs immediate centering. This is a technique taught by Donna Eden and it’s one of my top 3 favorites (along with the Heart Tap + Eye Tracing, as previously posted).
Why it’s helpful: The Hook Up is responsible for connecting 2 of your meridians (aka your body’s energy bloodstream):
- Your central meridian (which sends energy up the front of your body)
- Your governing meridian (which sends energy up your spine)
This Hook Up technique creates a bridge between those energies in the front and back of your body, from your head to your torso.
How to perform The Hook Up:
- Place your middle finger of one hand on your Third Eye (above the bridge of your nose).
- Place your middle finger of the other hand in your navel.
- Gently press each finger into your skin, pull it upward, and hold for 15-20 seconds while breathing in through your nose and out your mouth.*
*Watch how your body responds to this. I typically yawn as my signal that I’m “hooked” up.
