Do you find your mind whirling a lot lately? Are you feeling hurried or tired? Many people are just like you. According to the teachings of Wisdom Healing Qi Gong it means it is simply time to come back home in body, mind and heart. Here are four easy steps to start:
1. Relax into this Moment
Qi gong is called the gentle practice. Find a quiet place, it can be in an elevator or your car, and whisper the ancient chant, “Hao-la” (pronounced how-lah). This chant translates to: “all is well, so be it”. We are opening and calming the mind to accept that we are okay, and the world is okay in this moment.
2. Renew the Body
Qi gong is called the moving meditation. The pace of modern life confines us to our desk, our car, and our smart devices. It is time to move the body gently. Start with the Spinal Bone Marrow Movement from Wisdom Healing Qi Gong. This gentle Qigong practice increases back flexibility and strength, and improves balance.
3. Release the Stress
Qi gong is called the joyful practice. Emotional health is a cornerstone of wellness in qi gong. “When we expand our capacity for joy, then our body, mind and heart moves through life open to more possibility, and not depleted by worry.” Master Mingtong Gu says. Begin to release the stressful effects in your daily life from constant email and newsfeeds by chanting the ancient healing qi gong sound for the heart: “Xin” (pronounced “sheen”).
4. Reconnect with your Best Life
Qi gong is called the healing practice. Wisdom Healing Qi Gong trains us to connect with chi, the life energy in and around us to heal ourselves and heal our world. Start with a morning practice to help focus on well-being and the good works you can do this day.
So, even though your life may feel chaotic, let qi gong help you embrace each moment as a blessing.
