Will you know how to handle it when it happens?
Oh wait, you don’t know what ‘it’ is yet do you?
But then you can’t expect the unexpected can you Grasshopper?
Well, you can take basic precautions but you can’t cover every angle.
Take what happened yesterday as an example…
I was sat in my office finishing off October’s kick ass QIC Letter for my Inner Circle clients when I heard Clarabella shout up the stairs:
“Marcus can you come here a minute please”
Now it wasn’t the words that caused my blood to run cold.
It was something else.
Dr Albert Mehrabian conducted a stack of studies on nonverbal communication and his research showed that only 7% of any message is conveyed through words.
38% is through voice tone.
And it was the way Clarabella had said “can you come here” that made me stop what I was doing and fly down the stairs 8 at a time.
Anywhy, where was I?
Ah, yes. Running to heed Clarabella’s call.
When I reached the living room, I could immediately see what the problem was and shut the door behind me to stop it getting up stairs.
And what was it?
It was a Robin that had flown in through the open french windows and was now frantically trying to get out.
Luckily as soon as I arrived it found the exit, leaving us with loads of bird poo to clean up.
Which was fun.
Now imagine you’re doing your Qigong practice.
- And a bird fly’s into your room.
- Or a loved one calls you in ‘That’ tone of voice.
- Or a neighbour decides to drop in and ask if you’ve got any paracetamol.
- Or the fire alarm goes off in the hotel you’re staying in.
- Or it suddenly starts to rain cats and dogs.
And so on.
Would you know what to do?
Because unexpected disturbances whilst in a deep meditative state of mind (like a QSoM) can cause your Qi to become scattered.
And the trouble with unexpected disturbances is…
And they do happen.
I’ve had all of the above – apart from the bird – happen to me during my practice. And worse. Like the lady who came up to me whilst I was enjoying a gentle Energy Flow in a public park and asked me if I was alright =)
Disturbances to your practice are easily handled when you know how and I reveal all on page 129 of my book: Shaolin Chi Kung
[And in case you're wondering, Chi Kung is just a different way of spelling Qigong]
You’ll find it in Part 5: Practical advice.

Bye for now
P.S. My favourite ‘unexpected disturbance’ story is of the woman who was doing her practice down on the beach when a dog came running up to her.
She simply ignored it.
And eventually it went away.
After a little while she let go and enjoyed her Energy Flow… It felt so good to be practicing on the beach… Until she fell down the hole the dog had been digging!
She was fine, and she knew how to handle this unexpected disturbance to her practice.
