I have been studying reiki since 2006 and love to read as much as I can about Energy Healing and have a lovely reiki client base. However It wasn’t until I started practicing qi gong that I really began to develop my own Reiki practice and really feel the energy in every aspect of my body. . The energy we all have within us is effected everyday by our thoughts, food, environment and the people around us. Our much more sedentary lifestyle causes energy blockages within our body which leads to Chi—also known as prana, the warm current, Kundalini power, or the electromagnetic life force to get blocked.
“When was the last time you marveled at the simple fact that you are breathing and your heart is beating?” —Mantak Chia
The ancient Taoist masters spent a lot of time observing the flow of this “chi,” which they recognized as the breath of the universe that moves through everything. Chi is the glue between our body, mind, and spirit, the link between our perception of the inner and outer worlds. Living close to nature with few of the distractions of modern civilization, the Taoists were able to map in fine detail the workings of the chi energy both within the human body and in the world at large.
Practicing Qi Gong on a daily basis benefits
Releases and removes energy blockages on all levels (spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical).
Realigns energy flow that can be used to promote positive thinking.
Harmonizes energy centers thus helping to ease stress and balance emotions. Movements in Qigong can be refined to address a particular stressful emotion, be it grief, depression, irritability, frustration or any combination.
Restores the natural energy balance activating the body’s natural ability to perform self-healing and strengthens the immune system.
Increases vital energy and helps cleanse body toxins.
Creates a state of balance in the vital energy.
If you are a reiki practitioner I would highly recommend incorporating Qi Gong into your daily reiki routine. It encompasses meditation, breathing , movement and really helps you to keep your energy flowing and your mind focused which all enables you to be a better reiki or energy healer.
Videos I recommend following if you cannot attend a local Qi Gong Class
I love the above routine, the birds in the background makes this one so relaxing. This is a great one for when you first wake up in the morning
Lee Holden is great, he has some amazing courses on Udemy which I have completed and his short videos are great to do at any time of the day.
Qi gong Power – I love this one. If you think Qi gong is too slow for you, then try and keep up with this. Once you watch it a few times I tend to fast forward the first part to each segment and just get straight into it.
I feel like I am in another world when I do this video, it makes me feel like a warrior in training at the Shaolin Temple. One day….I may just get there…
I hope you enjoy and let me know if you do any of the videos and what you think….I shall pop up some of my own videos later this year once I complete my training courses. EEK…..(goal,vision,passion)
