Meaning: Qi is the vital energy of nature. Hua means change or transformation. It is a process that changes matter from one state to another. It is like a worm (caterpillar) transforming into a butterfly. We call this process Hua. Qi Hua in Qigong practice means that Qi may be used to remove blockages to allow the energy to flow. This is the Q healing skill. After doing Qigong practice for a certain length of time, you may use your Q to transform yourself or to transform another person's disease to flowing Qi. San means three. Pan means plate, layer, or circle. It also means something that is coiled together. San Pan means the three layers. The three layers have much symbolic meaning. In the body, they relate to the three parts of the body (upper, middle, lower). In terms of energy, they refer to the Jing, Qi, and Shen. In terms of the universe, they refer to Heaven, Earth, and Humanity. All three layers connect with the Q flow. Thus, the symbolism here refers to Q flowing smoothly in the three layers in such a way that there is peace and harmony.
Movement: Rotate back to center, bringing your right arm up as you turn the palm down and turn your left palm up until they meet at head level with your left hand resting under your right elbow. Feel yourself holding a Q ball with your palms. Rotate left and right with your arms, turning your palms over with each shift in direction. Rotate the upper body once at the upper Dantian, once at the middle Dantian and once at the lower Dantian. This represents the harmonizing of Heaven, Earth, and the Human Being.
Visualization: Visualize holding the Q ball with both hands. Imagine extending your fingers to touch the ends of the universe. As your hands move, visualize the Q following the hands and passing through the three layers of Heaven, Earth, and Humanity. Envision cooperation between all three Dantian.
Breathing: Inhale deeply before shifting right. Exhale as you shift right and inhale as you shift left.
Function: This movement transforms physical blockages and stagnation, which allows the Q to flow smoothly. It balances the three burners which are equivalent to the three layers: Heaven, Earth, and the Human Being. Diseases that are related to the three burners include heart and lung diseases, gastrointestinal diseases, and kidney diseases. Diseases located in these organs, or burners, may manifest in insomnia, anxiety, chest pain, nausea, and lower back pain. This movement also strengthens the ability to transmit external Q for healing.
