Discovering My Energy in Qigong

About this blog:

  • Most alternative solutions are based on knowledge gleaned from ancient, indigenous cultures, reaching back over 3,000 years and had been lost to us in our medical mire of high technology, HMO’s, and insurance driven care. In my opinion it is this medical swamp that has driven Americans into the offices of alternative practitioners throughout the country; spending billions of dollars looking for relief and cures for the enormous increase in cancer, auto-immune diseases, and chronic conditions that have no magic cures or quick fixes from the medical community.

    Holistic medicine and alternative modalities have become much more available over the last 25 years witnessed by the boom in yoga classes, energy workers, naturopathic physicians and massage therapists in every community. In general, Holistic Medicine is an attitudinal approach to healing. It looks at each case, be it an accident or disease, as a total experience of the individual – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. In most cases in modern medicine the injury or illness is segregated and only the affected area is treated. Holistic means greater than the sum of its parts. In a holistic approach to healing the focus is on the whole person not on the disease or injury.

    Professor Woodson Merrill from Columbia Medical School states, “If you don’t help patients to harness their own healing capacities, you are putting them at a significant disadvantage” In the months to come I hope to offer some “Alternative Solutions” that will assist you in harnessing your own healing abilities.

Have you ever found yourself completely out of energy? I mean just drained, like a ragdoll or like someone pulled the plug and left you completely empty. Worst of all your brain is no longer providing any clarity and you cannot figure out how you are ever going to feel energized again.  I am sure many of you can relate to this scary feeling. Perhaps after an illness or a stressful time of taking care for a loved one.

The past two weeks have been particularly stressful for me and my husband. We are the sole survivors of an adopted family member. We are now in charge of all of his arrangements and affairs in another state. As a recluse who never married, he lived his whole life in the same house. He was a quirky, eccentric character, and an electronic and audio genius in his own right. He earned the love of my children and grandchildren as a favorite uncle who was part of every family holiday and never missed the kids activities and performances over the years.    

The past two weeks have been spent beginning the process of sorting and digging out 78 years clutter from his parents house. If you have ever watched any of the Hoarders shows on TV, you will have an idea of what we are facing. After getting up at 4 AM and traveling to Connecticut and working in the house for eight hours I crashed, physically, mentally, and emotionally and wondered how I would get through two weeks of this.

The next morning, I realized I had not taken the time to do my Qigong practice the day before and knew that if I did not rely on Qigong my mental and physical health were going to pay a big price for taking on this enormous task. From then on, each day I spent a half hour in the morning and a half hour at night doing my regular Qigong practice and everything shifted. I found I was able to do the physical work required all day long and still have energy to visit with family and friends every night…and I wasn’t even sore.

I share this because I have a mission of getting the word out… that you are missing a valuable resource if you have not discovered how to gather and use the Qi (energy) that is available to you in your everyday life.

Qigong is an amazingly simple practice with immediate benefits. Just by using your conscious mind to align with the resources in nature, mother earth, and the universe you can rejuvenate your own energy in a matter of minutes. By practicing Qigong for even 20 minutes several days a week you can restore your energy level and experience a vitality that will have you feeling 20 years younger.

In the first phase of Qigong, you discover that Qi exists in us and all around us and learn breathing techniques, visualizations, and exercises for accessing this energy. There are also three promises of cultivating  a Qigong practice:

  • Qi is free and available to everyone
  • There are immediate stress management and health benefits
  • It is easy to learn and do and doesn’t require any equipment or space

So, the next time life’s difficulties kick you in the gut and drain your energy look into Qigong as a solution. I can guarantee if you try it, you will be hooked!. I will be sharing information about each of the Ten Phases of Qi Gong in the coming months. If you are in the Boothbay area, think about joining us at Barrett’s Park, Boothbay Harbor at 8 AM every Monday and Saturday Morning starting June 7th.  Beginners are welcome.
