The Powers of the Universe – How does this relate to Qigong? Part 2


Here is part 2 of this recent post!

Cataclysm or the destructive process by which new emergence is established is in nature and is a necessary process. I think related to Qigong this is what is going on when we don’t feel well. The body is letting us know that there is a necessary state of imbalance that needs to be addressed and allows for the re-establishment of health by way of vibrant creativity. In more advanced Qigong practice we find ways of being highly attuned to this process in order to adjust what is necessary to stay in a state of balance. Continue reading

The Powers of the Universe – How does this relate to Qigong? Part 1


What are the Powers of the Universe according to the latest research and how do they relate to our practice of Qigong? This is part 1 of a 2 part post. This is based on an article that I recently read by Brian Swimme in which he identifies some of the widely accepted scientific knowledge in physics, astronomy, biology, geology. paleontology and thermodynamics. This post will be in the form of musings that are not intended to be definitive but the basis of discussion and further investigation and inquiry. It is my firm belief that if the practice of Qigong is to evolve along with us it must keep up to the latest scientific research for it to be relevant. Continue reading

How is Energy or Qi moved through the Body?


One of the ways is through the CT or connective tissue. The Connective Tissue in the Body is pervasive.This subtle extremely strong tissue which resembles silk sometimes in sheets sometimes like cables and also surrounding the muscles is called the myo-fascial layer and is everywhere in the body. The nerves are surrounded by this in the perinural connective tissue also the blood vessels (perivascular CT), the lymphatic system (perilymphatic CT) as well as the bones (periosteum). It functionally holds everything in place. It is infused with that highly conductive internal water (conducting electrical impulses) that I spoke about in my last post and is arranged in a framework that is recognized as a liquid crystal lattice.

Is water the connection between the living matrix and the Qi Matrix?


The living matrix is approximately 70 percent water (a possible correlate of the Qi Matrix). This water is infused with electro-conductive metals such as iron, manganese, magnesium, sodium, potassium even silver and gold. Our electrical bodies use these metals for conductance. When we move adjusting posture gently we balance and harmonize this internal water within the matrix – the water filled tissues and passageways of the body. This internal water system is propelled and circulated when we deepen the breath, contract the muscles and relax. Water is possibly the bridge between the physical and energetic domains in the human system possibly the interface between the living matrix and the Qi Matrix! Continue reading
