NOW on Kindle: A Light Warrior's Guide to High Level Energy Healing

One would think that if they have a book in any of the major word processing or publishing formats that, to publish an Ebook, it would be a simple matter of taking the file, hitting a button, and viola! Bam! Instant Ebook!

Well, let me tell you, if you do not already know this, it is far, far from the actual doing to think that this can be done. In fact, if one is not familiar with HTML editing, there are very few options. I have explored most of them.

When this did not work initially, I did not panic but started trying alternative ways of doing it. And tried some more. I gave up and tried casting a spell on the file. Which actually worked to the same amount of efficiency as the other methods did. Meaning I had nothing.

Finally, after cussing certain software companies, and going through the stages of denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance, I was at a standstill.

Luckily for me, at this point I came across a little software package called Jutoh. This package saved me and the book from further software abuse, and allowed me to publish as an Ebook for the Kindle.
I have a kindle and love it. To me, it is a far better format for reading than a paper book.

So for those that agree with me, I present for your reading pleasure:
A Light Warrior's Guide to High Level Energy Healing, special 2011 Kindle Edition

The Path of the Healer

I would like to address the path of the healer. Yes, one can learn and practice the system I teach and utilize it for self. It is not just meant for healers, but for practical raising of the energy body vibration.

But the path of the healer is different. It requires quite a bit of sacrifice, in terms of time & effort, and in terms of experiencing and enjoying other aspects of life. And, I have never said that the path of the healer optimizes ones longevity. Quite possibly, the longevity aspect will be as much determined by genetics as anything else. Due to the intense demand on the body and energetics, as a healer one must constantly be aware of enhancing one's own health. So more time & effort. Sometimes when we would rather be fishing, gardening, talking with friends, or any other number of enjoyable activities, we can't. Because we will be called upon to help others. So the healer must have or develop an intense compassion for helping others. This compassion overrides practical every day activities.

The NEED for Balance

Ah, here we get into the tricky part. We must also strive to have balance, as much as possible. So, even though there are times we need to do healing when we may rather be doing something else, we must manifest the time to do something for that balance. It needs to be something that we enjoy. For me, I attempt to achieve that balance through farming, and through playing high energy rock n roll.

So whatever it is that one enjoys, he/she must make the time to do that or suffer the consequences of life imbalance. Although I must admit, that, for me, I have developed the qigong aspect of maintaining a 24/7 awareness of qigong-state, so I am doing qigong rock n rolling and horse qigong in the pictures.

So, in the end, I do not recommend the path of the Healer to anyone unless they KNOW, in the true-heart, that they are supposed to be doing Healing. Certainly any other reason, such as desires to make money, are not reasons which support the sacrifice required to be a healer. Must easier to do something else in life. But, if one does feel this heart connection, there is almost nothing that gives true joy as much as seeing someone's face light up when their pain instantly disappears.

The Importance of Energy Body Transformation/ Dan Tian Development for the Healer

In general, I would say there is nothing at all wrong with most energy systems if one does not use them as a healer to work on others. The mild energetic systems can help balance the practitioner's body as well as the energy centers and gates. The problems with them (and to be fair, some qigong systems) come into play when the practitioner actually reaches a level to displace sick qi from the client/patient's body. Note I said "reaches a level". From my observations most practitioners of the mild energetic systems do not reach this level. But when they do, far too many of them ignore sick qi which tends to accumulate (if they work on a lot of client/patients) and make them sick. I really don't know how many practitioners I have worked on but it probably now numbers close to or over 100. They were all very sick and were all healers of one sort - the most numerous were massage therapists. One cannot be an energy healer and ignore sick qi. Good way to die young.

Since I am sure to draw flack from certain practitioners for the above statement I will explain further.

First, let me point out that "Universal Energy" is really not in a form to be utilized for specific manifestation in terms of healing a person. Required is that the energy be transformed or transmuted into a form compatible with the person that is receiving a healing.

The debate about whether to "store" energy or "just use universal energy" is really not a debate. I think one problem lies in the definition of Dan Tian. I think the best way to look at this is to define Dan Tian as "place where energy storage [b]and transmutation[/b]" occurs (field of elixer).

One sees that as medical qigong practitioners we not only build, but actually utilize the energy body/Dan Tian in the same way a transformer is used to "transmute" the energy to a form usable for the house. If the transformer was not in place then the energy coming into the house would not be in a form compatible with the energy that the house needs.

Therefore the "do we need to store energy in Dan Tian" is not debatable. It is the way to transform the energy body and get to a vibration level needed to actually transmute the "universal energy" into a form compatible for the desired manifestation (healing) AND the way to upgrade the energy body so that the sick qi kickback does not have as much effect. Further qigong practice will neutralize the sick qi.

So a valid qigong practice will raise the practitioner's energy body vibration so the healer will be able to 1) access higher vibrational energies and 2) transmute these energies utilizing the energy body/ Dan Tian and INTENT.

An Internal, External & Energetics Program for Health & Awareness

I am often asked what I do as practice in order to be a healer. If anyone has read my writing they find I am always emphasizing the Stillness-Movement energetics. Of course the reason for this is that it is a practice that transforms the energy body, raising the energy body vibrationals in a way that carries over from lifetime to lifetime. Either we evolve in this time and then have a choice or we "get it right" in the next, next, next lifetime. The practice itself has the potential for helping to "get it right" this lifetime but indeed this depends on several factors, the main ones are "who you are" and how much gongfu - time & effort you are willing to do. I have explained the "who you are" part before but briefly we will revisit this. "Who you are" translates to your own Higher Level Self's spiritual growth through many lifetimes. I refer to "Destiny" as that which YOUR Higher-Level self has chosen to learn and do in any particular lifetime. So in a sense it is the overcoming of the great amnesia that we bring with us to the Earth, then finding and fulfilling one's Destiny. I explain this to stress the importance of the energetic practice. The Stillness-Movement energetic practice, in addition to being an amazing contributor to health, can bring about calmness and peace; this is something desperately needed by all NOW. The health aspects means that a person who practices misses less sick days, recovers faster if they do get ill, and has a great overall sense of well-being. The awareness aspect means we awaken to who we really are with all the privileges & responsibilities this brings.

However, in the act of being a healer, we find tremendous stress on the body. This comes not only from the physical act of the particular modalities we use but also from the accumulation of sick qi that we get from doing so many healings.

But wait, wouldn't this apply to just about everyone as well? Don't we have stress whether we are a child in kindergarten or a lawyer in court? Of course the answer is yes. Not as much chance of sick qi accumulation as a healer, but indeed the stresses to the body are there.

And there is the matter of general health. If we wish to utilize the body throughout it's full lifetime then we need to care for it. You know, maintenance; change the oil, put on new tires, keep it clean and operating at peak efficiency.

How do we do that?
A number of different approaches are valid. However, I see some approaches that actually adds stress instead of helping to alleviate it. Sometimes the keep-it-simple-approach is best.

Of course we need to consider our diet. There are many resources available for this so I will not go into it in detail. I will say this: If one practices Stillness-Movement then they could sit down at the exact same buffet everyday (providing that buffet had a good wide choice of foods) and through the process of what I call "Listening" choose the correct food for their body at that particular NOW. In other words Monday our body says it need yellow vegetables, Tuesday it says it needs protein, Wednesday... of course you see what I mean here. Also, I am a fan of concentrated greens products and whey protein. This is what I have in a shake (made with organic soymilk) for breakfast every morning. I add a multivitamin powder product to that shake.  I am a believer of supplementation and personally take resveratrol and a product called MaxGxl which enhances the bodies glutathione production as we lose approximately 10% of the body's capacity to produce glutathione for every decade of aging. In fact, studies show that ALL sick people, regardless of the type of illness, have low levels of glutathione.
In general, I think it is best to eat less meat and more fruits and vegetables. The meat is best if raised locally and pastured versus grain fed and the vegetables are best if locally and naturally raised.
I will  add to this to drink plenty of clean water. It seems that so many folks do not drink enough water.

I would suggest first thing in the morning to do some Stillness-Movement qigong before anything else. Either in the wee hours or around 5 in the morning. Then I suggest a minimum of 20 minutes on the rebounder, 10- 20 minutes with weights being sure to do add squats in the program, and 20 minutes running qigong. The rebounding needn't be "jump as high as you can" but a simple health bounce where your feet just clear the surface. Nasa's studies show the rebounding to be the single most efficient exercise one can do. So, if one is unable to run, the rebounding can substitute quite nicely. If a person is just starting a workout the key is to start slow then build. Something like 5 minutes of rebounding initially. Start using light weights. The object is NOT to bulk up but to do weight bearing exercise to strengthen the bones and muscles. Another thing that would be good to do is qigong walking. Running is not for everyone, so a combination of rebounding and qigong walking is very good.

Then during the day or evening, I would suggest at least an hour of concentrated sitting Stillness-Movement and at least 30 minutes of Gift of the Tao movement qigong. I personally prefer to do the movement qigong and standing Stillness-Movement in outside nature.

If a person is a healer then this changes. I then suggest at least 3 hours of Stillness-Movement and Gift of the Tao combined. And also, in between clients, do a few moves from Gift of the Tao. This will help keep your energy strong.

If a person is a teacher of qigong, that is, a real Teacher that does energy manipulation, this changes. I then suggest a minimum of 5 hours of combined Stillness-Movement and Gift of the Tao movement.

During the day I suggest adding Dr Graef's isotonal qigong exercises. These can be done in a few minutes and, in the event that on some days one can't get the physical exercise in, will help maintain the physical to a remarkable degree.

There you go. A full energetics, physical, and internal workout program.

Since I have now done my finger exercises typing this article, I now will do Stillness-Movement qigong.

3rd Eye Obsession

WOW! Can't tell you how many times I have had students, potential students, FOLKS IN A PUBLIC PLACE THAT DIDN'T KNOW ME, and on forums ask  "How can I open my 3rd eye?" OR a variation  that usually goes "My 3rd eye is opening and I need help with it."

OR "Can you open my 3rd eye with qi projection?"

OR  "I am ready to open my 3rd eye and have been 1) straring at pigs, 2) focusing on the 3rd eye for 1 hr at a time 3) doing any number of things that I have read in books".
All of these things seem to make as much sense as the other one.

It seems that folks are obsessed with this and I have to wonder why. Is it just that is seems SEXY?  Or are so many striving for that edge of Power so they can amaze their friends at parties? Or are they a genuine seeker that is just a little confused and  actually think this is the way it works? Well, although I know this is actually seldom the case, I will address this point of view.

People have read so much on "chakras" that everyone is absolutely certain they know exactly what they are, exactly where they are located, and exactly what each means usually expressed emotionally.

However, when one reads the books they find about 100 -1000 of what I think are direct plagarisms and then 100 more that all say different things. Who is right?

 I will tell you absolutely and without any question who is right. YOU are.

Now what the heck do I mean by this?

The truth is that there ARE NO SHORT CUTS. One can't be running around practicing skating one day and the next "be ready to open the 3rd eye".

So some potential questions and answers:

" I don't want  philosophizing . I want directions."

OK. SO you don't want to hear about the client that came to me who had been "focusing on the 3rd eye" and any time this person tried to read a book, watch tv, or DRIVE they would completely pass out? And of course you don't want to hear about the dozens of severe headache and mental instability clients that I have had to attempt to re-balance energetically because they read they needed to open the 3rd eye?

Of course you don't. No one does.

This is the new world. Pull up to McDonalds. Burger and a 3rd eye opening please.

And I want it NOW!

But what about the dimensionality of these "chakras"?

Huh? Chakra's don't have dimensionality, they are physical locations.


 Of course they have dimensionality and it is only through a legitimate time honored consistent practice that anyone can know this. One certainly can not EVER experience this reading about them.

But this subject is about 3rd eye and here you are talking about dimensionality of "chakras". I just want to skip the dimensionality part and go direct to the opening part.

You can't. The only way to safely open these "chakras" is a step by step process that requires time & effort. Sorry, no McDonalds 3rd eye specials. We have to open and balance the energy centers first. We have to "grow up" spiritually first. We have to learn to live in the Heart center first in order for "opening the 3rd eye" to have any real meaning.

Hey, your getting ahead of yourself, you haven't mentioned "energy centers".

Oh, that is the physical location in the body most people call "chakras". They are energy centers.

So, keeping us in suspense and not gonna tell us anything technical about this, are you?

OH, I will tell you EXACTLY one way to open the 3rd eye. This is what you wanted isn't it?


OK, practice Stillness-Movement and it will happen.

No! I want you to tell me "how, now".

Ah, thought you really didn't want to know. If you are not willing to learn a genuine system and practice it daily it is not going to happen.
If one attempts to open these energy centers before they are ready, each in its own time, naturally, there WILL be imbalances created.

OK, How long will it take me?

Everyone is different. It takes as long as it takes. At the hospital where I was trained, there were 2 "x-ray vision" girls who could see inside people's body. They came into their talent after one year of practicing Stillness-Movement. I have seen similar results here in the USA. More typically? Extremely difficult to say. As I said, everyone is different. Anywhere from 3 months to several lifetimes is my estimate. Better get to practicing. And I do believe before it happens (3rd eye opening), you will find that it is not so important as you once thought.

In fact, I do believe what you will find is that this subject is all about growing up spiritually, from children to adults. Asking the question of  "How do I open my 3rd eye?" is similar to a child asking a question of  "What will it be like when I grow up?"
We can tell the child about our experiences but the child has to experience and practice being an adult before he knows the answer.

Qigong: Breath Control Versus Natural Breathing

There are many ways and approaches to what we call qigong. In this post I wish to make a case for NOT utilizing breath control inside of qigong practice. 

But Wait! Isn't qigong inherently a breath control practice?
The answer is no. Some of this confusion stems from the current Chinese character for Qi from which a literal translation can be "air". But if we look at older translations Qi is seen as the vapor rising up from cooking a bowl of rice. Personally and as a Teacher I have found the 2nd translation to be much more accurate. Yes, qi is in the air that we breathe, but air is not the ultimate source of energy.

If qigong isn't a breath control practice, what is it?
This is not complicated. Qigong is the study and practice of energetics that requires time & effort; Energy Kung Fu .

So why would utilizing breath control during the actual practice be "bad"?
I don't say it is bad. I say it is limiting. My approach is to learn how to breathe naturally without limitations before practicing real qigong exercises. One of the problems with breath is that most people do not realize they are missing the top portion of their breath. The best way I know to solve this is to do running or rebounding. When these exercises are done we will find that missing top portion of breath and, through the exercise itself re-gain natural use of it. I would say anything over 3 miles a day will definitely both show the missing portion to a person and allow the person to re-gain this missing top portion of breath. If rebounding, a minimum of 30 minutes will do the same thing.

Ok, we have taken care of the top portion of breath, what about the bottom portion?
One of the missing keys in proper natural breathing is to expel all the air. One can simply utilize the diaphragm and push all the air out at the end of the breath.

All of this is fine, but what does it have to do with qigong?
We have learned to breathe better naturally through re-gaining both the top portion and the bottom portion of the breath. The breathing now becomes a natural NON-MIND, NO-BRAIN  process. So now on to the qigong.

One of the keys to having a non-limited qigong practice is to go to the energy directly instead of indirectly. If we access the energy indirectly by utilizing body/mind then the energy process will always be limited by the body/mind. Brain waves are measurable and anytime anyone utilizes the brain/mind to access or manipulate the energy the outcome is always finite as is the case when breath control is added to a practice. But if we give up that brain/mind input and access energy direct we have transcended these brain/mind limitations and have access to that which potentially is instantaneous and  has no limitation on amplitude.

This is why Stillness-Movement is such a powerful practice. We let go of the brain/mind energy manipulation, stop the world by shutting off all internal dialogue, breathe naturally, set up an awareness of the energetics, set INTENT on accessing and pulling in the energy, and then just BE. This allows the energy to naturally do what needs to be done without any brain/mind limitations.

And thus the Tao, doing nothing and letting nothing be not done.

Preconceived Notions Versus Tao

I could have titled this post as "The Power of Preconceived Notions", a title which leads one to believe that these notions are indeed true and good. The facts, however, usually demonstrate an entirely different conclusion. I would say the majority of the time these notions have no basis in fact.

One may read this and say to themselves, "But I have no preconceived notions. I take life one step at a time." 

Possibly you are correct. But most people DO have these and it shapes every thought and action we make. Sometimes these pre-conceived notions give us an incorrectly smug feeling of righteous indignation. Sometimes they give us the satisfaction of knowing we are right, even when we are wrong. Sometimes they give us the false justification to look down on others. And sometimes they help us to make totally incorrect and not so fruitful decisions in our life.

So what is available to us to help burn through these preconceived notions and perceive the truth?
I won't, in this post, get into the subject of  energetics, Wu Wei and synchronicity. We will save that for a later post. So let us refer to something that just IS, the Tao. Hence my title "Preconceived Notions Versus Tao".

Many folks interpret what Tao means somewhat differently. This interpretation differential certainly doesn't change what Tao is, only one's personal understanding of what it means. And this personal understanding can lead to what? You got it, those dreaded preconceived notions.

So let us not get bogged down with the definition of Tao. If one has never heard the word,  a lifetime of research can be done on the subject. For now, let us just say that the Tao IS.

So without further rambling we will get deeper into the actual subject of this post. To do so I will describe an event that hit home with me.

Recently I have had several elderly people in clinic. Some of them have been really sick and tough to work on! So a few weeks ago I get a call from someone in their later 80's that wants a session. And of course I make an appointment for him.

The morning of the session I was slightly bitchin to my wife that I would have a rough day as I had several tough older clients to work on. And here, of course, is the preconceived notion that I latched onto, which indeed had nothing whatsoever to do with the truth.

So I get this gentleman on the table and start working energy. His eyes get big around as saucers and he says that he has read about this but never experienced it. He felt the qi run through each limb. He felt his body getting lighter. He felt the sick qi as it left his body. He felt the utter joy, peace, and calmness of being bathed with pure Light.

How wondrous the session turned out! He was extremely sensitive to qi and the session was really easy. One of the easiest sessions I have done all year. All the pain gone and I didn't have to do much more than blink!

So as for preconceived notions, the score is:
Preconceived notions - zero, Tao - one.

The Shen Go (Spirit Dog)

The Story of Shen Go (Spirit Dog)

Have you ever been in one of those situations where everyone is looking expectantly at you and you have no idea what to say? The elder Chinese, when at a dinner party or banquet, like to tell stories or recite poetry. I was attending one in Baoding City with my teacher, Master Wang Juemin. And - it was my turn.

Think quickly, I told myself. But, myself said back, "What kind of story can I tell? I have no stories."
But I stood up.

So what am I going to say? Everyone looked expectantly at me. Well, I could tell a coming of age drinking story - but wait, although very funny, that one has a naughty ending - can't tell that one.

I could tell a fishing story. But do these distinguished guys fish? Don't know, but don't think so. No, no fishing story.

All of this flashed in my head for about 3 seconds or so. Here I was caught with no story.

Just as I was about to say "I have no story" and sit down, it came to me they may find it interesting to hear about my dog Shen Go.

Yes, I know, very few folks in the good ol USA have dogs with Chinese names. But I had not one but two.

So here is the story of Shen Go, my Spirit Dog:

I was out on my normal morning run. I usually run on this rural dirt road surrounded by beautiful and mystical woods that is quite a way from any civilization; no traffic and no people. This particular morning had fog rolling about, threading its way though the tree limbs and making everything more enticing and magical.

I had traveled about 2 miles or so on my run. I all of a sudden felt something in the energy. I became wary, often glancing behind me. I didn't know what to make of this as usually I had an extremely peaceful run while basking in the beauty of Tao.

I was practicing qigong running, as had been my practice for several years while running. This consists of 4 main stages; stamina, qi pushing up a hill, swiftness, and the lightness technique. I was currently in the lightness phase when the feeling of wariness became extremely acute.

I glanced, for the 50th time, behind me. Nothing.

After about 10 seconds I looked behind me again. Appearing as swiftly as an avenging Spirit, all of a sudden, a wild and snarling animal jumped out of the woods and began to chase me.

So I, as an accomplished qigong practitioner, calmly entered my swiftness phase of qigong.

Are you kidding me? The practice of Qigong left my mind as swiftly as a dove flying over one's head.

What did I do? I panicked and ran like hellfire itself was pushing at my soul.

After about 1/2 mile I said to myself, surely I have outrun this spooky and terrible apparition. So I glanced back.

No, this terrible apparition was right behind me. I did manage to see it was a wild dog, baring it's teeth at me like a wolf about to eat lunch. And he was coming on swiftly.

Holy crap, I thought. So I put on another burst of speed. After a while I became very winded. Surely a dog doesn't have the stamina to run this long, I tried to talk myself into believing. So I looked back. This wild and vicious creature of the woods was still right behind me. So I put on one last and desperate burst of speed.

I didn't make it much further. I was done, about to be mauled and eaten by a wild, ferocious, teeth baring dog.

So I turned around to face him. Prepared to battle until the gory, blood letting, and bitter end.

And then that moment happened, when time stands still and one's life becomes merged in the never ending Tao. In slow motion I watched as this creature from hell, spittle foaming from his lips, jumped up and landed on my chest, reached for my face, and...

He licked me. All over my face.

Can't ignore a message from Spirit like that. I took him home and named him Shen Go. He never allowed anyone else to touch him and remained quite wild. He was my Spirit Dog.

Don't forget our next Qigong workshop July 24th, 25th and optional Clinical Applications July 26th. Here is a pdf flyer

Practice your qigong!

Friday, July 16, 2010

Let's put it off for a few more days....weeks....years...decades...NOT!

Ever since I invented the internet, of course with just a small amount of help from Al Gore, I have had a website for qigong training, www.qigongamerica.com. No No, Al didn't help with the website – only inventing the internet. I utilized Microsoft software and became very familiar with said software. It was SO easy to use. Yeah, had to learn a a small amount of HTML programming but programming is/was not my cup of tea. Not since learning Fortran (uh oh, show my age) have I been the slightest interested in programming. Well, OK, you caught me - I did do some basic programming years ago. But no interest now.

So what is my point? Oh yeah, in my opinion, Microsoft sabotages it's web software so that Firefox (which is what I use) and other browsers don't look the same. In other words, code is optimized for IE and looks funky sometimes in Firefox.

OK, so, fine. But what is my main point? How does this relate to "putting it off.."?

What I have been putting off is using other software for web development. After all, it IS/WAS SO EASY to just add or change something and then ftp it.

I knew several years ago that I was going to need to change this... but put it off until summer... until next year...until...

So I investigated other software. Dreamweaver seems to be a business standard, but have you seen what they want for that? Above my budget.
Joomla appears to be the very coolest. So I downloaded it and went to work. Tried it. Liked it...BUT.. database appeared to just eat passwords so when I wanted to update BAM the database locked up...inexplicably. Tried playing with this for quite some time and probably will eventually go back to it. Can't beat the price - it is FREE!

Meantime, my website has gotten added on to, patched, bloated, difficult to maneuver, etc. So I needed to change it. So I will do so sometimes shortly – perhaps this summer... winter...next year for sure.

OK, so I created a sister site in Joomla. Liked it. Just on the verge, probably this summer..or perhaps by fall... of updating www.qigongamerica.com.

Meanwhile I needed to add some stuff, so easy to do with existing software, maybe I will put it off for a while. In the meantime Joomla did another one of those inexplicable things – can't even log on to change anything... sigh. If I ran my own server I think I would stay with this Joomla – so much to like.

But I think, for now, I'll just add on to www.qigongamerica.com with existing software. So easy...


So, after more than 10 years of putting it off I finally completely re-wrote www.qigongamerica.com. Not finished but OK to go ahead and put it up. Check it out!

So how does this apply to qigong and life? Think about it.

No, actually DON"T think about it. Just DO!!!

Stillness-Movement Qigong and Qi Projection

When folks ask me about what to expect at a Stillness-Movement workshop I can say, "You learn internal qigong, movement qigong, medical qigong, sleeping qigong, tree qigong, and Taoist medicine."

But the really difficult part to explain is the qi projection I do for the students. What does this do? The answer is many things and some of those things are beyond linear communication skills.

Oh, the qi projection helps to open the channels, remove blockages, open and clear the energy centers, "Light the Fire" (create a Dan Tian), raise the energy body vibrational frequency, imprint quantum based information... Whoa, back up. What did you say?

I guess most involved in energetics or Chinese medicine understand the first things mentioned above, but the last two things mentioned... WHAT???

OK. The method I teach, Stillness-Movement, is a medical qigong system that can only be taught by teachers capable of projecting energetics that raise the energy body vibration rate of the students to give students access to certain high-level vibrations that raise awareness and help them to heal others.

The quantum information is accessed by the students when they raise their energy body vibration rate through the qi projection in the workshops and through their own practice of Stillness-Movement and Gift of the Tao movements.

One of the things this practically means is that a student has an awareness shift and is immediately able to BEGIN to heal others.

OK. So linear explanations don't work too well. How about a demonstration video?

Reason 37,699 for practicing your Chi Kung

Reason 37,699 for practicing your Chi Kung?

I'm sure one can come up with many reasons fro the practice of qigong. Increased health, increased awareness, helping a soul awaken who they really are,...

But wait, this post isn't to list the first 100 reasons. It is to list reason 37,699.

And, boy oh boy is reason 37,699 a good one!

So I was driving about a 3 1/2 hr drive yesterday. Minding my own business. Enjoying the day. Practicing a little driving qigong? Nah, not going to admit to that.

So what's the bid deal, anyway?

Oh yeah, reason 37,699 to practice qigong. That's the big deal.

AS I was doing the above, minding my own business, enjoying a nice day drive, an 18 wheeler came around a curve and turned towards on my side of the road heading directly towards me. Yikes! What to do?

Well, I could have taken to the side of the road. The only thing, though, is that there was no shoulder, only a steep and deep ditch. And I was going 55-60. Hmmn, instant roll over, doesn't sound too fun. Brakes? Nah, that would only slow me down so the 18 wheeler could hit me with his trailer instead of his cab.

You must understand, all these options had to be weighed and discarded inside of a second. Really didn't have much "time" to decide. So what did I do?

I got the manual of "How to apply qi in emergency situations out", that's what I did.

Not really.

What I did was hit the driver with a strong intense burst of qi with a "wake-up call" embedded.

What happened? Did it work?

I wrote this post, didn't I?

Blessing Our Food: Why Don't More Folks Do This?

I was sitting in a restaurant today and looked up after blessing my food. A few people were staring. So I smiled and munched on down. But it got me to thinking about this. I bless my food for every meal and teach my students to do so as well but have hardly EVER seen anyone else do so in a public restaurant. Oh, I have seen a few folks that gave thanks for their food, and that's great, but it's not the same thing. I mean actually setting INTENT and using energy to clean the food.

Yeah I know, this blog is supposed to be "musings", but today I am turning it to a "how to" because I for one feel that this is desperately needed NOW. After all, we don't really have any idea whatsoever what chemicals are put on the foods, how the food was handled, and how much negative energy was induced by sick people and people who were angry. We also don't know if the most recent handler actually washed their hands. Or maybe they washed the food really well but set it where raw meat had previously been.

Hungry yet? Or don't want to ever, ever eat in a public restaurant again?

Actually, not a bad idea. If you can grow your own food and eat it at home you will find the food has much more qi than food from a restaurant or the grocery store. And needs blessing less, although blessing is always a good thing to do.

But still, it is difficult to not find yourself at some point in a restaurant with a plate of food in front of you. So what do we do?

This blog is mainly geared to qigong practitioners. So, if you are not a qigong practitioner IMO you can't do this. In order to actually manipulate the raw fabric of the universe, one must raise the energy body vibrational frequency. This takes time & effort. For those of you who are not qigong practitioners read this and please take it as encouragement to find yourself a qigong teacher, but do not attempt the described technique.

For those of you who do practice qigong, here is one way to do this.
First, stop the world. If you don't know what I mean by that just get into your qi-state. Now set your INTENT. What should your INTENT be? Let's examine this. If you try to make it too complicated I can assure you that efficacy will be limited. The thing we have to ask ourselves is, "What is the most important?"

One could debate about this for quite a while as there is no one answer. Here is what I suggest:
After stopping the world and getting into your qi state, set your INTENT as neutralizing all external pernicious influences, then project the qi into the food. Then you may want to add a little "May this food be digested well in my body" and "May this food keep me in good health" (adds energy to the food).

Of course we could get more complicated with the INTENT, but this is probably enough for now. After doing this, if you use your hands to project the qi then lightly shake them off to the side if you don't know how to transform sick qi into Light. If you do know how, then don't forget to do so. I have seen really nasty sick qi come off food when doing this.

One more thing, your ability to do this and the efficacy is directly proportional to how much you have raised your energy body vibration and how well you are practiced at setting INTENT. So don't think you can actually neutralize raw bacteria unless you KNOW you can do so. But there are those of us who surely believe this is possible and I encourage everyone to practice their qigong and "learn who you really are".

This is a technique of medical qigong and may not be compatible with non-medical oriented qigong, so attempt this at your own pace and abilities. It is really best to learn this technique direct from a teacher that knows how. Also, if you do not believe that such a thing as sick qi exists then why would you even want to attempt to do something like this? If this is your belief then I strongly suggest you do not attempt this technique. And again, if you do not practice qigong then please do not attempt this.

If you want to know more about manipulating the raw fabric of the universe, how to gather, store, circulate, transform and transmute energy, how to help heal yourself and how to directly heal others with this energy, then consider attending this workshop: March 20th and 21st with optional clinical applications March 22nd, Institute of Chinese Energy Healing, West Plains, Missouri. See www.qigongamerica.com for more info.
Oh yeah, we will bless our food when we go to lunch and dinner.

Qigong on the Beach or on a Mountain?

Ah, qigong on the beach. Specifically Gift of the Tao movement qigong on the beach. Funny, I can never decide if I like doing qigong near a ocean or qigong in the mountains better. Well, on second thought, mountains definitely - but wow oh wow the ocean is a much fun place to do Spirit's Gift.

Join us to learn the amazing Gift of the Tao movement system as well as the powerful neigong system of Stillness-Movement March 20/21/22. The 22nd is optional clinical applications day where we will focus on medical qigong and Taoist medicine.
