Womens Qi Flows in the Opposite Direction

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 women direct their flow of qi in the opposite direction.

This worked beautifully. I was quite surprised, since no classical texts mention that qi flows in the opposite direction in women. If my hypothesis was correct, I would need to add what I learned to the meridian theory. I needed more objective data. After I stimulated the qi flow of the patients in both directions along the Ren and Du channels using magnetism and ultrasound, I tested these patients' qi muscle power. Tests of more than one hundred patients made it clear that when qi flowed downward along the Du Channel in women (Figure 3-4), the strength of the fingers increased.

I announced my discovery at the "World Qigong Science Conference" in Beijing in 1988, and also published an article on the subject in the professional qigong magazine "Zhong Hua Qigong." It seems that China, where qigong was originally invented, tends to recognize the idea of different directions for the qi flow of men and women. I would also note that while this phenomenon is rare, there are men whose qi flows in the direction of a woman's, and women whose qi-flow direction is the same as most men's. The reason for this is not yet clear.
