Qigong Energy Flow To Reduce Stress – Introduction
The big problem for many of us with modern day life is the amount of stress that it can cause us. Stress can lead to many other detrimental effects on our minds and bodies, for example:
- Poor sleep;
- Anxiety and depression;
- More specific health problems such as fibromyalgia, digestive problems, high blood pressure and diabetes.
In terms of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Qigong, stress is simply due to a lack of smooth flow of Qi (energy) leading to:
- Blocked emotions which cannot be expressed in a healthy way;
- Stagnation of physical circulation and a consequent decrease in our energy levels.
How do we unblock this?
What we don’t do is try to force anything to happen as the stress of trying too hard can create even more stagnation of Qi and frustration.
What we can do is simply ALLOW our bodies to bring themselves back into a natural balance by creating the conditions by which our Qi and emotions can flow smoothly. When we do this, we don’t need to do anything else as the Qi will then flow to where it is needed in order for healing and revitalisation of your body and mind to take place.
The objective of the Qigong energy flow in this video is to:
- Create conditions for allowing the Qi to flow smoothly;
- Create physical and mental SPACE for healing.
The results of following this 15 minute Qigong routine can include:
- A more calm and clear mind;
- A revitalised and energised body;
- Less mind chatter and more focus;
- Improved sleep.
This is a perfect Qigong for beginners method if you are new to Qigong as it is easy to follow. However, it is a skill and, like any skill, is developed over time so please be patient with yourself if you don’t feel the flow when you first start out.
Qigong Energy Flow To Reduce Stress – Method
- Settle into your practice with a few abdominal breaths to bring yourself into the Qigong state.
- Adopt the correct Qigong stance.
- Relax your whole body a little more with each exhalation. Begin to feel your body swaying as your Qi begins to flow more freely.
- Once you are comfortable with the swaying motion of your body perform a few “Circles” movements with your arms, allowing the swaying of your body to continue.
- Consolidate your practice with a few abdominal breaths.
