Welcome to the Vital Qi Newsletter. I hope you enjoy this holiday edition of the Vital Qi Newsletter. This season is about sharing and giving. And we should start with giving ourselves the gift of love, kindness, forgiveness and gratitude. Keep reading below, to learn more about the "Season of Giving" and my special gift to you.

Qigong is a great way to reduce the effects of stress and improve your health. I have benefited from many different forms of Qigong. You can experience similar benefits too. The purpose of the Vital Qi Newsletter is to bring awareness to Qigong and to inform you of Qigong classes and products available at Inner Vitality Qigong. We also intend on covering other natural health related topics. We look forward to working with you and growing together as we cultivate inner vitality through the art of Qigong.

Season of Giving

During the holiday season, it is easy to get caught up in doing stuff because it can be a very busy time. We must go shopping for gifts for loved ones. We must have holiday parties. We must prepare for the company of family and friends. We must prepare holiday food. We must do all of these things and more because we feel its expected. However, we forget to take care of ourselves. Instead, we get stressed out over things and place artificial expectations on ourselves. We should not forget that we must voluntarily bring balance into our lives, otherwise, we may be faced with emotional and physical challenges. So during this holiday season, it is time to give a precious give of love, kindness, forgiveness and gratitude to ourselves. We should let go of these expectation. We should forgive ourselves for our so-called "limitations". We should also have an open and compassionate mind and forgive other. We should let go of the things that cause us to feel stressed out. After all, stress is nothing more than a perception and response to feeling threatened in some way. We should let go of thoughts that hold us back from truly enjoying all of the abundance that life has to offer. We should also feel and express our gratitude for this abundance. Let your loved ones know you appreciate having them in your life. And equally important, let your waiter and your hairdresser and your mail person know that you are grateful for their services. Finally, we should share our abundance with others. I believe that helping and sharing with others are important missions of humanity. Notice that I keep using the word "should". This is where freewill comes in. We have a choice. By applying these principles in our lives, we are choosing to empower ourselves and those around us to be the best that we can be. Negativity weakens us and positive loving thoughts strengthen us.

In the spirit of giving, I have a gift for you. It is an audio .mp3 file of the Open Mind Meditation. I created the Open Mind Meditation several years ago based on my training from several teachers. The Open Mind Meditation is a simple, but power meditation that will help you let go and be grateful. By letting go and feeling grateful, we free and open our minds. When our minds are open, we let go of stress and therefore, we can more deeply relax our mind and our body. Click on the link below and it will take you to a page, where you can listen online as well as download a copy that you can listen to any time.

And may the true spirit of the holidays fill your heart and your life with relaxation, joy and love.

Best Qi Wishes!

Healing Starts In The Mind

If you want to heal your body, remember, healing starts in the mind. It starts with the thoughts and mental pictures you have about your circumstance. It is important to have positive thoughts about your ability to heal. Let go of the victim mentality. You have the power within you to change your circumstance. Let go of the story you keep telling yourself. The stories you tell yourself can feed your situation, giving more energy to the situation you don't want. You have the power of choice. You can choose a new story. You can change the thought patterns that keep you stuck in your situation. As described by Dr. Wayne Dyer in his book "10 Secrets To Success and Inner Peace", one of his secrets is "Give up your personal history". He explains that if you give up your personal history, then you don't have to live up to it. This personal history is the story you are telling yourself and others.

Being of Service

People along the east coast are still cleaning up after being hit by Hurricane Sandy. They are faced with difficult times as they rebuild their lives. Some are still without homes, food, water, heat, and much more. Things most of us take for granted. Together we can make a difference, one person at a time. Not only do we help others by being of service, but we also benefit as well. Not only does our service touch people's lives in a positive way, but it is also healing for ourselves as well. There are so many ways to be of service, like donating money, time, clothing, etc. One way to be of service is by opening your heart and your wallet and donating to the "American Red Cross". They are on the ground providing support in most communities, but especially in those communities hit hard by this latest hurricane. There is so much need. Please donate today. You can make a difference.
