Mudra Set For
 Balancing Energy

 

This is a very easy way to balance your energy. It can be done almost anywhere, while standing, sitting, walking, lying down. The exercise uses Mudras which are hand positions.

The effect of this exercise is that you feel calmer and more relaxed and concentrated.

Let the tips of each of your fingers touch the tip of your thumb in turn. Keep each connected for a few seconds. See pics below.

Do this with both hands at the same time and carry on for a few minutes in total.


Thumb touches the tip of the index finder - this opens the Root Chakra and moves more energy to the lower body and legs:



 

Thumb touches the tip of the middle finger - this helps you with patience:





Thumb touches tip of your ring finger - creating energy, self-confidence and stability:


 


Thumb touches the tip of your little finger which helps with intuition and feeling:

 

There are some more Mudra exercises on here:

The Taijitu (Yin/Yang Symbol)

太極拳

 

      

Qi, which is another way of spelling 'Chi' is the Chinese name for the animating life force energy of the body which gives us the power to walk, talk and think and Gong means 'the power to produce an effect' and so Chi Gong means 'Energy Work'.

You've probably seen Qi Gong spelt a number of different ways but whether it is Qi Gong, Qi Kung, Chi Gong, Chi Gong or another other way of spelling it, it is all the same. But it is pronounced "Chee Gong".

Qi Gong is an ancient Chinese form of exercise which consists of standing and moving  meditations for both the body and the mind as well as a correct way of breathing which gets the Chi circulating round our bodies helping us to improve our health, prevent illness, strengthen the body and also help us to develop spiritually. The history of Qi Gong can be dated back as far as four thousand years. It is an ancient science combining the knowledge of traditional Chinese medicine and Chinese philosophy. To the Chinese, Qi  Gong is considered a national treasure. it is looked upon as a tool to combat various diseases and as a way to develop a healthier body.

There are 460 movements in the Qi Gong and related Tai Chi programs. Breathing techniques help the Chi to flow. It is self healing and can lead to the connection of the mind, body and spirit.

Just like our Chakras are connected to meridians in our body, so the energy channels of different Qi Gong exercises are connected to meridians.

Qi Gong is easy to learn and does not take much time or space to perform. Practice will develop a smooth, strong flow of blood and energy throughout the body. In actual fact, Qi Gong does the same as what acupuncture does and was the forefather of acupuncture.

Qi Gong does the same as what acupuncture and acupressure (Shiatsu) do... it gets the Chi moving and gets us healthy and helps us stay healthy.

In our bodies we have 3 main energy centres which we concentrate on:
 

     Lower Dantien:     this is below and behind the navel, where chi
                                            for action comes from

                    

   
  Middle Dantien:     behind the Solar Plexus, affected by emotions

 
   Upper Dantien:     behind mid point between the eyebrows, where
                                            all thoughts are received (the third eye Chakra)

 
 


 

 

     
 

When practicing Qi Gong correctly abdominal breathing is very important. You should attempt to breathe more deeply than usual but remember to never force the breath.

Taoist Breathing:

         Strengthens acquired Chi from food and air

     
   Activates the lower Dantien energy centre and enables Chi
               to travel from there to other parts of the body


Here is a small Qi Gong breathing exercise:

 

Inhale and gently expand the lungs with air and allow the upper part of the chest to expand, then let the middle part of the lungs and rib cage expand, finally the abdomen area as you feel the diaphragm muscle expand down.

When you exhale, allow the upper chest to collapse and empty, then the middle area, then the lower area of the abdomen. Follow through by pulling the diaphragm muscle upwards so that it pushes all air out of the lungs.

Try being conscious of your breathing whilst walking, waiting for the bus etc. - you will feel a gradual improvement and with time Qi Gong breathing will become automatic, both, when awake and asleep.

 

 

    

Your mind discovers how to open up and become more finely attuned to what is happening within you and outside of you, as well as to how these things are connected. You can gain awareness of your health, your body's movement, any tension or stress, particular feelings, or your relationship to the world that you move through. This awareness is the first step in allowing you to take control of anything that may need action, such as releasing stress or healing a disease, and can be the key to healthy longevity.

 



 


 

 

Qi Gong is the key component of traditional Chinese medicine which has a history of five thousand years (in record), and can be divided approximately into four major periods.

(1)    The period of united heaven, earth and man (before 206 BC):

This period was marked out historically by the book �Yi Jing� (Book of Changes) introduced in 1122 BC, which talked about Qi, the concepts of the natural energies and the integration of Heaven, Earth, and Man.

 

(2)    The period of Qi Gong mixed with religion (206 BC � 500 AD):

During Han dynasty (206 BC) Buddhism and meditation methods were imported   from India, which brought Qi Gong practice and meditation into the religious Qi Gong era.

 

(3)    The period of martial art Qi Gong (500 AD -- 557):

In the Liang dynasty (502- 557 Ad), it was discovered that Qi Gong could be used for martial-art purposes. From 1911 on, Chinese Qi Gong training was mixed with Qi Gong practices from India, Japan and many other countries because of the ease of communication in the modern world. (Source: Jwing-Ming Yang, Qi Gong for Arthritis).

     

(4)    The period of modern Qi Gong research:

 (1980s - present). As more and more Qi Gong practitioners came out to show the public their amazing abilities and to teach the public to practice Qi Gong, it gradually emerged from the traditional secret transmission into a practice found in the public domain and scientific research.

 

Since 1978, medical workers and Qi Gong masters all over China have made vigorous efforts to popularise Qi Gong for health preservation and disease prevention. Some scientists and technicians have not only studied Qi Gong in terms of physiology, biochemistry, and modern medicine, but they have also conducted multi-disciplinary research efforts to analyse the physical effect of outgoing Qi. A study on the nature and essence of Qi Gong has thus been initiated, and Qi Gong, as a new branch of science, has entered a period of vigorous development. Qi Gong research societies, hospitals and departments have been established to research, teach and use Qi Gong. Qi Gong practice and study have become commonplace throughout China.

"The perfect man has no self; the spiritual man has no achievement;
the sage has no name."

~  Chauang Tzu ~

 

 

"Thirty spokes join
together in the hub. It is because of what is not there that the cart is useful.
Clay is formed into a vessel.
It is because of its emptiness that the vessel is useful.
Cut doors and windows to make a room.
It is because of its emptiness that the room
is useful.
Therefore, what is present is used for profit.
But it is in absence that there is usefulness."

~ Tao Te Ching ~

Translated by Charles Muller

 


 
Why is the Tao so valuable?
Because it is everywhere,
and everyone can use it.

This is why those who seek will find,
And those who reform
will be forgiven;
Why the good will be rewarded,
And the thief who is cunningwill escape.

~ Lao Tzum ~
