The technique of calming the mind plays a vital role in Qigong healing. A tranquil mind offers clarity, enabling clients to find their own solutions and start nurturing their mind.
In Qigong healing, we focus not only on the mind but also on Shen – the spirit that manifests in the brightness of one’s eyes. Bright, sparkling eyes suggest a strong Shen, which signifies peace of mind.
Shen governs aspects such as spirit, consciousness, clear articulation of thought, memory, intelligence, and creativity.
I hope now can you see why using qigong healing techniques to calm the mind is so important?
When I’ve got my qigong healing ‘hat’ on I teach a more powerful form of this technique, but the great thing about the technique I show in the video is that it is really simple and really safe for you to do on your own.
Here’s the written instructions, if you are unable to view the video for any reason:
- Find a nice comfy place, where you wont be disturbed for the next 3 to 5 minutes whilst you practice this qigong healing technique.
- Sitting symmetrically, close your eyes and as you breathe in through your nose, say the words ‘In Deeply’ to yourself. And as you breathe in feel your tummy pressing outwards. Be sure to undo any tight buttons or belts! Avoid having the chest rising and falling, you want to be breathing deeply.
- As you breathe out through your mouth, say the words ‘Out Slowly’ to yourself. And relax the body and the mind even further.
- Repeat steps 2 and 3 of this qigong healing technique for a maximum of 5 minutes.
This qigong healing technique really is that simple, so keep it simple. No fancy ‘creative visualisations’ or nothing. Just focus on your breathing and use the ‘In deep’, ‘out long’ to calm the mind.
When you’ve finished this qigong healing technique, open your eyes and just take a few breaths to bring yourself back to material reality =) Avoid jumping up and racing off into the world.
And that’s it. Feel free to practice it as many times a day as you like, but avoid doing for longer than 5 minutes and make sure you won’t be disturbed. Let me know how you get on with it by leaving a comment in the box below. Go on, don’t be shy.
Opening the heart and calming the mind are just 2 of the qigong healing techniques used in qigong healing. In future posts I’ll share a few more with you.
Bye for now
