Please, make use of the precious moments in the morning to take good care of your bodies and thus make yourselves happy and healthy.

I also highly recommend a morning meditation. If you just meditate for 5 min, it will change the whole day and don't forget to finish your meditation or massage with expression of gratitude. Follow this post for morning meditation and breathing suggestions

  1. When you wake up in the morning, do not open your eyes immediately, but rest in the bed for 30 seconds so that the body could get prepared.  Next, rub your hands until they get hot. Then cover your eyes with the hot hands and begin to massage eyes in circles. Complete 36 circles in the clockwise and anticlockwise directions respectively. After that, slowly rotate your eyeballs from top to bottom, from left to right, and finally in circles. Repeat the eye-rotation for 18 rounds. Then open your eyes and stare at the ceiling for about 1-2 minutes. After completing this part of the massage, you will have a bright eyesight and feel refreshed, comfortable, and vigorous.
  2. Rub your hands until they get hot. Then cover both of your auricles (the outer projecting portion of the ear) with the hot hands and begin to massage them in circles. Complete 36 circles in the clockwise and anticlockwise directions respectively.
    The movements should be slow, light, and comfortable. After the massage, gently insert the tips of both middle fingers into the exterior ear holes (fingernails must be trimmed and smoothed beforehand), and massage in circles. Complete 36 circles in the clockwise and anticlockwise directions respectively. After the massage, gently cover both of your auricles with the palms and use the finger pulps to softly tap your head.
    This will refresh the brains and improve or maintain your good hearing.
  3. Rub your hands until they get hot. Then cover your cheeks with the hot hands and begin to massage them in circles. Complete 36 circles in the clockwise and anticlockwise directions respectively. Rub your hands again until they get hot.
    Then cover your forehead, mouth and nose with the hot hands and begin to lightly massage them in circles. Complete 36 circles in the clockwise and anticlockwise directions respectively. After that, you will feel refreshed and rejuvenated. This provides natural and cheap self-beautifying effects.
  4. Rub your hands until they get hot. Then gently cover your face with the hot hands. Slightly push your middle fingers against the nose wings on both sides, and gently massage the face from bottom to top. The massage route may cross: Mouth, nose, eyes, forehead, hairline  and Baihui Acupoint on the top of the head.
    Then move the palms across the back of your head, the occiput (back part of the head or skull), the upper hind neck, the cervical vertebrae, the lower mandible, Chengjiang Acupoint (directly below the lip), the mouth, and the philtrum (under the nose). Repeat this process for 8 circles.
    This will improve your looks, refresh the brains, restore the spirit, promote blood circulation, and dredge channels.
  5. The four massage steps described above can be completed while you are lying on the red or sitting on the bed. After the exercises, sit on the bed and have a rest for 30 seconds and then stand still on your feet for 30 seconds. 
    This will completely ease the body and prepare you for the day ahead.

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.
