Energy Blockages


THINK OF THE ENERGY channels in your body like a stream or river. When the river is flowing smoothly everything is fine. Farmers can take water from the river for their crops. Towns and cities can take water from the river for people to drink. You can even have fun floating on an inner tube down the river on a hot day.

But if something happens to cause a blockage in the river, this can cause a lot of problems. Downstream from the blockage the river can dry up and there is no water to drink or for farmers' crops. Upstream the river can overflow its banks and cause flooding.

With a river it's easy to see that a blockage can cause lots of problems. It is the same with the energy channels in our bodies.

If we want to get well, if we want to feel our best, we have to keep these energy channels open and the energy flowing smoothly and freely. So, when we have blockages, we need to open or remove these blockages to rebalance the Yin-Yang energy.

Everything is energy. You are an energy being. Your mind, your body, your spirit are all energy. While the Qi energy flows through your body life continues. When the Qi stops flowing, this life ends. When the flow of Qi pauses, or is interrupted, you get sick. All sickness in your body, mind or spirit are caused by energy blockages. Remove the blockage and energy balance is restored.

Remember that we are formed by those two kinds of Qi energy —Yin and Yang. Yin means something female, passive, and spiritual; Yang means something male, active, and physical. Examples of Yin would be woman, water, spiritual life, and earth. Examples of Yang would be man, fire, physical body, and sky. Yin and Yang energies must be in a good balance. Either too much Yin or too much Yang will cause imbalance in the body. We call it sickness. Yin energy cannot live without Yang energy, and Yang energy cannot live without Yin. Also, in a certain situation, Yin energy would change into Yang energy and Yang energy would change into Yin energy.

When Yin and Yang are not in a good balance, a blockage will be formed in the body. Colds, arthritis, depression, tumors, etc, are simply the symptoms of the imbalance of Yin and Yang. This blockage keeps energy from flowing freely in certain energy channels. These energy channels run throughout the body to keep it fully functioning.

We have many energy channels in our body. There are twelve main channels, plus eight reservoir channels. Each channel serves a specific purpose. The main channels carry energy to wherever energy is needed in the body. Extra energy in the main channels flows to the reservoir channels. The body draws on energy in the reservoir channels when the main channels run low.

Blockages in the main channels and reservoir channels prevent energy from getting to parts of the body that need energy. Body functioning slows down or stops, and we feel sick.

Qigong practice lets you remove blockages of the Yin and Yang energies so that the energy can flow through the body in perfect balance. With balance comes healing. With balance comes peak performance. With balance comes inner peace, harmony and happiness.

Qigong exercise and meditation are active and preven-tative ways to heal the body, while medicine is a passive way to heal the body. Both play an important role, but Qigong can potentially heal the body more effectively and possibly with perfection.

There are many wonderful things that modern medicine can do. I would never recommend that anyone stop seeing their doctor or stop following their doctor's advice. I believe that Qigong can work very effectively with modern medicine as a complementary practice.

I know from experience that people who practice Qigong recover much faster from illness. People who practice Qigong and have chemotherapy for cancer treatment have experienced less nausea, and their hair has grown back much faster. People who practice Qigong and have surgery have experienced less pain and much faster healing.

Modern medicine tends to focus on symptoms and relieving symptoms. While Qigong works much different-

ly focusing on healing the root of the sickness and prevention. A perfect healing heals the body physically, mentally, and spiritually at the same time. As far as we know, most traditional healing techniques help the body physically. Qigong opens the door for holistic, perfect healing. This is needed more today than at any other time in the history of mankind.

With the revolution of modern techniques and computers, more and more people are working at their homes or in an office. Less and less physical work is required. Because of this, more and more people develop Yin-Yang imbalances in the body. As we have already discussed, Yin energy is something passive. Mental work belongs to Yin energy, while physical work belongs to Yang energy.

Today we use more mental or Yin energy and greatly cut down physical activities, the Yang energy. That means we have created a great imbalance both to our physical body and mental body. Practicing Qigong is the simplest, easiest and best way I know to correct this imbalance in our lives. Qigong is the ideal exercise to help us achieve our goal of perfect health.

When you do Qigong you lead your mind to a state of peace and stillness and you balance the energy in the brain. And, thru the active movements of Qigong you also strengthen the physical energy.
