What Is Qi (Chi)? Central to Taoist world-view and practice is qi (chi). Qi is life-force -- that which animates the forms of the world. It is the vibratory nature of phenomena -- the flow and tremoring that is happening continuously at molecular, atomic and sub-atomic levels. In China, the understanding of qi is inherent in the very language. Many Different Kinds of Qi Practitioners of Chinese Medicine and qigong have identified many different kinds of qi. Balanced & Free-Flowing Qi = Health The fundamental insight of qigong and Chinese Medicine (acupuncture and herbal medicine) is that balanced and free-flowing qi results in health; while stagnant or imbalanced qi leads to disease. Feeling the Qi The capacity to perceive the flow of qi directly -- to actually see or feel it -- is something that can be cultivated through training in qigong or acupuncture. We might be in the habit of perceiving our world in terms of solid shapes and forms. Recommended reading: Orr, Katherine.
The Twelve Primary Qi Channels - Part 1Here will briefly review the twelve primary Qi channels along with the eight extraordinary meridians. You should also know the organ's Yin and Yang. In our body, there are six Yang organs and six Yin organs. Each Yang organ is associated with and harmonized by a Yin organ. Paired Yin and Yang organs belong to the same phase in the Five Phases. Their channels are sequential to each other in the circulation of Qi, their functions are closely related, and disease in one usually affects the other. In the limbs, the Yang channels are on the external side of the limbs while the Yin channels are on the internal side. The organs are further subdivided in order to distinguish the different levels of the Yin/Yang characteristics. Lung Channel of Hand Greater Yin The lungs (Yin) and the large intestine (Yang) are considered paired organs. In Qigong practice, since the lungs belong to Metal, they are able to regulate heartburn.

Mindfulness meditation training changes brain structure in eight weeksParticipating in an 8-week mindfulness meditation program appears to make measurable changes in brain regions associated with memory, sense of self, empathy and stress. In a study that will appear in the January 30 issue of Psychiatry Research: Neuroimaging, a team led by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) researchers report the results of their study, the first to document meditation-produced changes over time in the brain's grey matter. "Although the practice of meditation is associated with a sense of peacefulness and physical relaxation, practitioners have long claimed that meditation also provides cognitive and psychological benefits that persist throughout the day," says Sara Lazar, PhD, of the MGH Psychiatric Neuroimaging Research Program, the study's senior author. "This study demonstrates that changes in brain structure may underlie some of these reported improvements and that people are not just feeling better because they are spending time relaxing."

Welcome to the National Qigong Association (Chi Kung)Understanding the Merkabah and Inter-Dimensional TravelJune 24, 2014 Free Spirit, Guest Waking Times The Merkabah Vehicle is the means for travelling to higher dimensional planes and for ascending the physical body out of the 3rd dimension. Our Merkabah Vehicle is in essence our own inter-dimensional star-craft – similar to the structure in the Contact movie, albeit far more complex. The degree to which we have assembled our Merkabah Vehicle, will determine how far we can progress through the Astral Planes and whether we are able to use the interstellar and intergalactic wormholes. As we awaken to our higher dimensional selves and engage in conscious astral travel, we begin to ‘build’ our Merkabah. Our light body is often depicted in art as being within a Metatron’s Cube or some other similar geometric structure. Activating the Merkabah Vehicle – The Architecture of the Universe The Dodecahedron served as the vehicle in the Contact movie – see here: Like this:
