In case this is the first time you read me, I’m a qigong trainer, practitioner, and advocate because during all my years of Chinese metaphysical studies, I’ve discovered that Qigong is the practice that provides the most benefits, when practiced consistently, but without much training, so at the end, it is kind of the best value for money.
What is Qigong?
Qigong comes from the word Qi that is vital energy.
Qi it is the intelligence in your body. It goes beyond any other form of energy because it is the reason why, for instance, when you cut yourself, it heals, the intelligence in your body knows what to do!!!!
Qigong also comes from the word Gong that is to activate, to stimulate, to work with.
So, Qigong is to work with your vital energy, with the intelligence in your body… for any intention that you have… because your intention directs the energy.
As I mentioned in a previous article, Qigong is a form of meditation.
So, what is the difference between Qigong meditation and regular meditation?
Regular meditation helps you to relax the body and take away stress.
Qigong meditation goes beyond that, it not only relaxes your body and takes away stress, but it also helps you to go deeper into your heart energy to cultivate the intelligence in your body, that is your Qi, which helps you to heal, and is your connection to the Divine, or the Universe, or an energy greater than you.
Qigong moving meditation, with gently and slowly repeating movements, brings your body, mind and heart together, so your energy is not scattered anymore.
When you activate your energy channels and you feel the energy in your body… in your hands, in your legs, or anywhere, you are able to physically balance it.
When you take the time to feel that energy and you combine those sensations with your breath, and feel the moment, you end up balancing not only at the physical level but also at the emotional level. When you are there and go deeper moving your energy around your energy channels, you are able to connect yourself with the energy greater than yours.
That is the power and the difference between regular meditation and qigong meditation.
I hope this helps you to understand why qigong is more powerful in healing and connecting to the divine, or the universe, or the energy greater than you, than regular meditation.
Connecting to the divine is where healing resides.
