Qigong and the Subtle Energy Body
Qigong is a simple life science that moves qi and brings a powerful balance into the body. The movements, breathing techniques and meditations all work together to bring our energy body into a harmonious state. The practice of qigong moves the qi and at the same time lets the student practicing qigong feel the subtle energy as the qi moves.
During certain exercises, we may notice areas within the body tingle or flutter, maybe feel hot or cold, as the qi moves. As the practice brings us into balance, these feelings become regular. The body then begins to let us know when we have reached a balanced state.
We may not always listen to our bodies, but the tangible feeling of qi movement directly correlates to our own balanced state. The subtle energy body is full of bright colors; green surrounds the liver, yellow the stomach, red the heart and so on. The power we hold in the energy body is always there, but it needs to be nurtured and fed.
Maintaining it is up to the individual. We can take control of our own well-being and practice a proven system that is over 7,000 years old and feel our subtle energy body come alive.
