Chi Energy needs your body to be relaxed to flow freely through it.
Tension stops the flow.
Some tensions result from hard physical work, some are from continuous stress.
When we are worried and stressed, we send frequencies of fear and insecurity through our body. The natural reaction of the body is to protect itself. How? By tensing the muscles that are related to self protection, for example, the back and shoulder muscles.
The first thing to do in order to restore the energy flow, is to release those tensions. You will find very effective relaxation techniques here. These techniques are what you start with and need to practice for a while.
But, the real work is in everyday life, you’ll be more aware of the fact that you tense muscles that you don’t really need right now, you’ll watch yourself doing it, and each time you will catch yourself tensing an unnecessary muscle, you will relax it. This way you will slowly, slowly build yourself new habits.
Then, one day, you will suddenly feel that you are relaxed, much more than a year or two or three ago, not totally yet, but the energy flows much better already through your body. And probably it will make you feel happy!
Once you are aware of this and do the everyday work of releasing tensions as much as you can, you can start using your chi power center.
Tantien, center of chi energy
This center, called Tantien, hara or the alchemy chaldron, is the geometric and gravity center of your body and also your chi pump.
The Hara pumps life energy in and sends out clean, fresh chi energy to all parts of the body.
Your power center is kind of an energetic heart; it has the same function for the energy as your heart has for the blood circulation.
Once you feel the Hara and know how to relax your body you are ready for the right posture. Which is a key element to enhance the flow of chi in your body.
When you start integrating the three elements -relaxation, hara and the right posture- you are ready to feel energy. Everyone can feel energy. Our hands are highly sensitive antennas. You only need to wake them up and they will tell you about chi.
And when you are fully attentive, centered and relaxed, sitting in the right posture, your breath slows down, and becomes deeper by itself with no effort.
Breathing is a key word for well being, and with time i will describe several breathing techniques on the site here.
Find your Chi Energy practice
The tools mentioned above (which I intend to develop further) are basics for many different practices and disciplines, you can use them doing meditation, tai-chi, dance or sport. You have to find what your discipline is, the one you will practice with passion and enthusiasm, the one that best suits the needs of your body and soul.
So where were we? Relax, connect to your center, keep the right posture, feel, breathe…so many things to do?! I’m already tired when I think about it! That brings us to our daily practice.
Relax! Take your time. After all, it took us many years to build our bad habits, it will take us some time to be perfect beings again, and the journey is more important than the target.
Build yourself a solid practice that won’t fade away after two weeks. The best way to lose energy, is to take decisions you can’t stand behind. Stand behind your decisions, your level of energy will rise.
So, how do I start? Small, start small! This is the secret of small decisions! Start with five minutes a day for two weeks, or one month, then add five more minutes for a couple of weeks, and so on until…after a few months you will practice daily for maybe half an hour, and you will enjoy every minute!
You can keep your half hour for years until you will have more time. The length of your daily practice doesn’t really matter. The most important is that you stand behind your decisions, and raise your level of energy by doing that.
Here is a good website with a lot of information about work with chi.
Dance, walk, move…get happy!
This might sound heavy and too hard for you, learn and practice for so long before seeing results, maybe you need something that works immediately, something that enhances your chi flow and brings joy into your life.
Move, Walk, laugh, Dance! Dance everyday, party at home every morning and bring joy into your body and soul!
