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:

Another basic skill to be gradually mastered in Qi Gong is how to concentrate and regulate one's mental activity so as to enter a quiet, meditative state. Much of the success of Qi Gong practice depends on the level of peace and quietness one can attain. This "entering a quiet state" refers to a settled and peaceful state of mind not disturbed by extraneous thoughts, the mind concentrated on one point such as the "Dantien" (about one inch below the navel) or on the very act of breathing. All awareness to external stimuli (such as sound and light) is thereby reduced, even to the point that the practitioner's sense of position and weight are lost, until one reaches a state in which they are conscious yet not conscious, aware yet not aware. In this way, the cerebral cortex enters a quiescent state. Most people find it difficult to enter such a quietened state, being frequently disturbed by extraneous thoughts. However, with patience and perseverance it can be gradually attained.
 

Here are five of the most common methods used to help enter such a state:

 

    Fixing the Mind:
 

Here the mind concentrates on a point on the body, most commonly the "Dantien". When concentrating the practitioner must rid one's mind of all extraneous thoughts, though not over-concentrating, remaining relaxed and natural, keeping one's thoughts at the point, yet not stuck there.
 

 

    Following the Breath:

 

Here one concentrates on the breath, essentially on the undulation of abdominal breathing, making sure that conscious control of the breathing is avoided. One practices until they reach a quiet state where breath and mind are united.

 

    Counting the Breath:

 

One inhalation and one exhalation form one breath. Silently count each breath until it reaches ten, then from ten to one hundred until your ears hear nothing, your eyes see nothing and there are no extraneous thoughts in your mind.


 

    Silent Reciting:

 

Words or phrases recited in the mind (not aloud) should be simple so as to help the practitioner enter a quiet state. One can, for instance, recite the words "relax" and "quiet," which have proved to be of great help to many people in calming the mind.

 

 

    Listening to the Breath:

 

Use your ears to actually listen to your respiration. It is best to reach the stage at which one cannot actually hear one's breathing, and so by attempting and concentrating to hear when one cannot, it aids the process of entering a quiet state.

To begin with, the practitioner may practice fixing the mind, then gradually turn to following the breath and listening to the breath; or may choose to stay with fixing the mind from beginning to end.



 



 

       
 

Regulation of the breathing has proved to be an important aspect in Qi Gong therapy. One aims, through practice, to change from breathing in the chest to abdominal breathing, thus developing one's respiration from the shallow to the deep. This deepening of the breathing has the effect of expanding lung capacity, promoting circulation of oxygen in the blood, massaging the internal abdominal organs, and helping digestion and assimilation of food. Styles emphasizing the practice of breathing usually distinguish four major types or methods:

 

     Natural Breathing:

 

This is one's innate way of respiration, normal to everyone, without any interference or control by the mind. Although it may well be soft and even, it has the disadvantage of not being very deep.

 

     Complementary Breathing:

 

In this form one expands the abdomen outwards as one inhales and contracts it as one exhales. As the movement of the abdomen develops, one gradually achieves abdominal breathing.


 

     Reversed Breathing:

 

This is the opposite of complementary breathing. As one inhales the abdomen is contracted, and as one exhales it is expanded. This method gives greater scope and intensity to the use of muscles in breathing.

 

     Stopping the Breathing:

 

Here, during or after inhalation or exhalation the practitioner stops the passage of air for a short while and then continues. This method helps focus the mind on the action of the control of breath.

 

Other than those mentioned above there are certain special breathing methods which should only be used in accordance with certain illnesses. No matter which method is used, however, one must be sure to develop it slowly and gradually by degrees, without forcing it or striving for quick results.
