What do you do when you need to get rid of something?
And what if it’s too valuable to just throw away?
Chances are you start to consider eBay, or the classifieds of your local paper.
And when that something is an old 2008 iMac with a tendency to freeze up when you least expect it, how do you pitch a sale like that?
“2008 iMac for sale, looks great but randomly freezes up and stops working when you least expect it…“
Hmm, now that’s a hard sell.
Well, you can probably imagine my delight when a good friend of mine made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.
No mind melting product description to create, no shipping hassles, no worries about how much it’s going to sell for, etc.
So it was with a smile on my face that I made the 90 minute drive to my friends house last Saturday, taking my old, much loved iMac with me.
I know it sounds sloppily sentimental, what with it being a machine, but I was glad it was going to a good home.
I was also happy because I was going to be spending the night at my friends house. Him and his wife are wonderful hosts and there’s always a mountain of great ‘foody’ treats available.
That evening whilst enjoying the benefits of good food, good company and good conversation, my friend reminded me of a funny story I’d forgotten.
But before I share it with you, here’s a quick question for you…
What’s my favourite daily Qigong practice?
That’s right, ‘Cosmic Shower’.
It’s a progression of the Qigong exercise ‘Carrying the Moon’, it’s also one of the most powerful ways I know of cleaning away any blockages to harmonious energy flow through the meridians of the body.
In fact I consider it to be the most powerful, non-drug, antidote to the stresses and strains of life in the 21st century.
In a nutshell, you’re taking a shower in Cosmic energy, but… unlike a normal shower, this shower gives you an internal clean, washing away energy blockages.
And no, it’s not something I can teach online or in a book. It belongs to the category of Qigong I only teach face to face.
Not because I’m mean, but because it’s just too easy to do it wrong.
As I mentioned, there’s a funny story attached to Cosmic Shower which I’d completely forgotten, until my friend reminded me.
In case you’re wondering, we both used to teach Qigong in the same school a few years back.
When Cosmic Shower was first taught by the head of the school, it was called Golden Shower.
Which is a good name.
A really good name.
Until someone pointed out that the term ‘Golden Shower’ was also used to refer to an unusual sexual practice enjoyed by some people.
I remember being there at the time when an instructor informed the head of the school of this fact.
You should have seen everyone’s faces (myself included) when the penny dropped!
And, if you’ve never heard of the term Golden Shower, then I’ll leave you to find out what it is.
Right, I best get on, I’ve a number of new and exciting Qigong projects to work on now that I’ve finally got my new iMac up and running.
In fact I think one of these projects is a completely new one in the world of Qigong, I’m certainly not aware of it being done before.
I’ll keep you posted.
Enjoy your practice!
