Qi what?

Qi by definition, (in traditional Chinese medicine and philosophy) is the vital life force that flows through the body. What does that mean? How do we get in touch with that and why would we want to?

Every living thing carries its own qi or chi or prana or life force- whatever you choose to call it, we all have it or we wouldn’t be alive. It is at the core of us, our very essence. Feel it? That subtle energy that runs through us constantly. When I am teaching people about energy I like to use the example of being in line at the grocery store and feeling someone behind you even before you see them. They are in your space. You feel them energetically. That is the energy I am referring to here.

What most people don’t know is that we can actually work with that energy for our own health and happiness and well as the health and happiness of everyone else, even Mother Earth herself.

There are so many ways to do this. I’ve been practicing and teaching Reiki for over a decade. This form of energy work is well-known. There are over a million of us practitioners on the planet. Another one of my favorites is QiGong. Qigong, which is sometimes spelled Chi-Kung (and pronounced chee-gung), is the study and practice of cultivating vital life-force through various techniques, including: Breathing techniques, Posture, Meditations, and Guided imagery.

My qigong teacher, Jeff Primack of Supreme Science Qigong, teaches us breathing techniques and postures with hand movements to promote this flow of qi. Improving the flow of qi leads to enhanced wellness on every level, particularly our physical bodies. I believe this work is extremely important and used in conjunction with meditation and practices such as Reiki, it can and does keep us healthy physically, mentally, emotionally, and Spiritually.

I encourage you to seek out teachers in these fields.

It will do wonders for you and for the entire population.
