Opening the Microcosmic Orbit

Microcosmic Orbit

When you have learned to circulate a qi ball from your hands through your entire body, you are ready to try the Microcosmic Orbit method. Classical qi books ask you to gather qi in the lower Dan-Tian and let it flow around your body Figures 3-2 and 3-3 . But it takes too much time to gather qi there, and this fact discourages most people from learning the Microcosmic Orbit method. The method I have developed is actually a lot easier than the classic method. Make a qi ball between your palms....

Womens Qi Flows in the Opposite Direction

Ren And Channels

One day while I was meditating, an idea about the qi flow of women flashed into my mind. I suddenly intuited that the direction of women's qi flow is opposite that of men. After mastering the Microcosmic Orbit method, I had begun teaching patients and students to use the qigong method I developed to let their qi flow smoothly. I found that men achieved satisfactory results, but that women did not. I was not helping to make qi flow more smoothly in women. So I followed my intuition and helped...

Mastering the Macrocosmic Orbit Method

Mastering the Microcosmic Orbit method was for me the first step in beginning to sense and control qi. The next step was to master the Macrocosmic Orbit method, and so I spent a good deal of time and effort attempting to absorb external qi from nature. I remember the very moment that I succeeded. I had a strong feeling of qi on the crown of my head. I felt as if something was rising through my head with a pulsing sensation. Since then I have been able to sense external qi and to allow qi to...

How to Make Your Wishes Come True

I learned this by teaching medical doctors and business executives in qigong seminars. I opened their Chakras when I thought they were ready to practice on a higher level, so that they could learn what...

The Heart Sutra of Kukai

Master Zhao Guang has said, The origin of qi is Nothingness. Nothingness is the only origin of reality that cannot be proven. In Buddhism, it is called Emptiness. I have always been concerned with finding practical methods and techniques. Since I am a long-time practitioner of qi, armchair philosophy on Nothingness or Emptiness has never satisfied me. In my research, I have investigated techniques, trying to find a level at which technique would give way to something more. And yet I also did...
