The 3 Essential Skills that Anyone knows of Qigong
Give me three minutes and I'll explain why 98% of Qigong practitioners are wasting your time ...
Remember that Qigong is the art of deliberately controlling the vital energy or Chi / Qi. Vital energy is the "juice" that keeps him alive and enables you to do everything you do.
* Qigong is similar to yoga, but less intense
* It's like Tai Chi, but easier and faster to learn
* Provides health benefits and requires zero athleticism.
There are five main objectives that people who exercise Qigong / Qigong want to achieve:
1. Improve health and increase vitality
3. Develop inner strength
4. Mind Expansion
5. Spiritual Cultivation
But I'd say about 98% of Qigong practitioners today are wasting their time because they do not practice the three basic skills of Qigong.
If you want to succeed you need to Qigong practice, practice, practice these three core competencies.
So what are these three basic skills that almost nobody knows?
1) Enter a QSOM - think of it as a higher state of consciousness. It's about being relaxed and focused.
Listen, if you can not relax, you can not do qigong. While many people start practicing qigong to be able to relax, and this is a very good reason by the way, relaxation is just the beginning of qigong.
To enter a QSOM you have to be able to relax physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
2) Energy Flow - more poetically known as "flowing breeze, swaying willows"
One of the most well guarded jealously guarded secrets of qigong and that is a real shame, because the flow of energy is what makes it such a powerful tool qigong for health and vitality. If the flow of energy is not part of their practice of qigong, then you are losing at least 75% of the benefits of Chi Kung.
3) standing meditation - which helps to consolidate their practice and that's all I want to say about it here, otherwise we would be here for hours.
Seriously, if these three core competencies are not part of their daily practice of qigong everything you're doing is an exercise in low level and if that's what you want to do you can also do the washing, because at least you are getting something useful done at the same time. If you are practicing medical qigong, dynamic qigong, qigong for martial arts, qigong or super hardcore universe as large or small, you need to be practicing the three basic skills of qigong to make the most of the time and effort you invest in your practice . If you're not you're leaving most of the goodness of qigong on the table.
At week 22 Qigong Secrets Home Study Course I cover these three basic skills in great detail - but the truth is that the best way to learn these skills vital core of qigong is directly from me or from a teacher who knows and practices. Qigong is an art because it is the skills that are important. Certainly more important than the number of qigong exercises, you know. It is the mastery of these three critical skills that allows you to get more benefits in just 15 minutes of daily practice that most practitioners of qigong get in an hour.
They are so important.
