Everyone wants it – everyone feels diminished without it – most seek it by amassing external triumphs and visible victory spoil but in fact a beggar can be imbued with more true dignity than a rich person. Dignity has nothing to do with external show or effects of any kind and exclusively to do with what the word actually means: rightness or more precisely, uprightness is achieved simply by aligning your spinal column correctly, so that each vertebra rests properly on the vertebra below it and so on and this is achieved by using your mind to lengthen your spine.
Imagine someone is lifting the crown of your head towards the ceiling by use of an invisible thread attached there and you’ll instantly feel your spine grow longer. And as soon as it does, you’ll feel a palpable sense of dignity inform you.
Lengthening your spine to imbue you with natural dignity also improves your overall health by increasing the flow of chi along the most important energy pathway in your body (your spine). Your spine is the central column of your physical being – lengthen it and you strengthen it and thus strengthen your presence in general.
There’s a point at the rear of the neck, just under the base of the skull, which if pressed sensitively yet intelligibly will automatically release tension all the way down the spinal column, this enabling it to lengthen and so strengthen.
Use your dominant thumb to feel into the dent in the centre of the base of your skull, hook it under and resting your fingers on top of your skull, press the thumb in with as much force as you can muster while still keeping your shoulder, arm and hand relaxed for approximately 30 seconds three times today while visualizing someone raising your crown by pulling upwards in an invisible thread attached to the top of your head.
By this time tomorrow, you’ll feel as if you’ve grown an inch.
Meanwhile, may your presence feel magnified to the power of ten today, dear reader.
