Before we look at the best chi kung/qigong exercises for increasing mind expansion, let’s just have a quick recap of Jing, Qi/Chi and Shen.
Jing, Qi and Shen are also known as the ‘Three Treasures of a Human” in that every human has form (jing), energy (qi) and mind (shen).
When you practice Qigong you are not just cultivating energy, you are also cultivating the physical body (jing) and cultivating the mind (shen).
What I’m saying is that any of the qigong exercises practiced as qigong will cultivate the mind, leading to mind expansion. But having said that, there is one that stands head and shoulders above the rest if you want to be ‘cost effective’ in cultivating the mind. It’s one of the qigong exercises that has graced this pages more than most, it’s:
Reverse Hands Bend Waist – amongst it’s many great benefits, Nourishing Kidneys (the other name for this qigong exercise) is brilliant for students and scholars who cannot concentrate on their studies. Why? Because a sub meridian (remember meridians are the streams your energy flows through) of the kidney goes to the brain and therefore this qigong exercise can enhance the intellect.
Another pattern worth considering is Big Turn of the Cosmos – if you find it hard to get focused and alert, ready for the long haul of creativity and study then this qigong exercise is perfect for the job. Much better than a high dosage of caffeine because you avoid the energy slump that comes afterwards.
Fierce Tiger Pushing Mountains is also worth considering as apart from being excellent for developing internal force it also nourishes the brain and enhances marrow – which has got to be a good thing.
Bye for now
