Heal your heart and mind

This heart-opening exercise/visualization is about opening your heart to Love, and can heal your heart and mind, which is truly the most important healing of all.

You can do this anywhere, just find a few minutes where you won't be interrupted. Read through the details first, and then give it a try. It is always good to start by taking a deep breath.

When you are ready, you can close your eyes, take a deep breath and do the following:

Imagine you are in a room that you really love, a room that makes you feel safe and peaceful, maybe the room from your childhood that you loved the most, or maybe just a room that shows up in your mind right now. 

You are resting in bed, just resting quietly and feeling very good and comfortable. Look around the room, notice the windows, the curtains, the furniture, and the light. Take a deep breath. Look and see where the door is.

The door is open. Now watch the doorway as someone comes in to tell you they love you. Let them come. Just see who it is and what they do as they tell you "I love you!" And then another person comes in, and tells you "I love you!" And another, and another. Let them come. There are so many people in your life who love you! You may be amazed at who shows up! Stay quiet in your bed, and just let them come. Allow the love to enter your heart. No need to think or make any effort in any way. Just stay quiet and watch.

Whenever you feel complete, you can open your eyes. This gift of love will stay in your heart, if you cherish it as the treasure it truly is.

I often do this visualization when I feel a little stressed, or upset. It always fills my heart with love, light and gratitude and everything looks better from here!

Wishing you the peace and joy of a heart filled with Love, Light and Gratitude

Qigong for Strengthening the Kidneys

In Chinese Medicine, as in reality, there is no way to separate the mind and the body.

The most pronounced emotion related to Kidney Deficiency is fear. This type of imbalance would be marked with unfounded fear and anxiety during everyday life rather than fear relating to true danger. 

Unchecked, it can manifest as infertility, sexual dysfunction, menopause, prostate problems, impaired immunity, chronic inflammation, high blood pressure, heart irregularities and anxiety.

Adrenal glands sit on top of the kidneys and produce adrenaline that participates in the body’s fight/flight/freeze response and cortisol that stimulates stress. Long-term adrenaline and cortisol over production, partly brought on by chronic fear, can lead to adrenal burnout and chronic fatigue.

The kidney meridian starts at the underside center of the foot. It moves to the inside of the foot and circles the ankle. Then it moves up the inside of each leg, through the groin, and up the center of the torso about an inch fr…

Bliss Meditation

If you are familiar with Kundalini, you will no doubt be familiar with the use of the Serpent to describe this energy and power. 

Kundalini is often equated to a coiled serpent lying asleep at the base of spine, which, then with the practice of Kundalini Yoga, is awakened and made to rise up to the crown of the head.

In addition to this analogy, increased encounters with serpents are also often reported by those in the midst of a Kundalini Awakening.
 These encounters don't necessarily have to be with the real live snakes. These reports generally indicate that there is just a greater presence of snakes in their lives all of sudden, in the form of pictures, dreams, conversations, TV shows, books, etc.
There are also the more incredible stories regarding snakes, especially cobras, and those with awakened Kundalini. An example of this is the cobra that would often visit U.G. Krishnamurti at night at his house.  This cobra would hiss and bang at the door and in general make a lot of rucku…

Zhan Zhuang - Foundation of Internal Martial Arts

I found another good article on my favorite topic.

Zhan Zhuang - foundation of Internal Martial Artsby Karel Koskuba

Most Internal Martial Arts use some form of standing practice as foundation training (and Taijiquan is no exception in this regard). 

These standing exercises are usually called Zhan Zhuang(pole standing); sometimes they are called 'Standing Qigong'.

The standing exercises are supposed torelax and help you'accumulate Qi'. In this article I shall try to outline my theory that should explain, from western perspective, why these exercises are so important both for Internal Martial Arts and Qigong, how this western view correlates with the traditional Qiview and give training advice on how to practice them. In writing this article I have drawn upon my experience from Taijiquan, Yiquan and information from medical postural rehabilitation research and sports science.
