What is Qi?

The "Qi" (pronounced chee) part of Qigong refers to the universal energy or life force that is present in all living organisms. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), disease occurs in the human body when Qi flow is disturbed (excess, deficient or blocked). The disruption of the Qi flow may manifest itself as symptoms (physical or emotional). Qi flows throughout the body in energy channels. There are twelve major Jing channels (meridians) associated with the twelve organs (not necessarily the same as the physical organs of western anatomy) of the body. There are also eight Mai channels (vessels) that store and circulate Qi. Thus, improving Qi flow in the body literally means improving the flow of Qi in the organs. The human body relies on the proper amount and flow of energy (Qi) for maintaining good health. Consistent practice of Qigong smooths out the Qi flow by opening energy channels in the body, increasing the stored energy in the body, and by circulating the energy through the channels. Thus, Qigong allows the practitioner to "Get Qi, Feel Qi, and Use Qi".

Qigong Tips

Qi is depleted or blocked in many ways:
  1. Too much mental or physical stress.
  2. Poor eating and drinking habits.
  3. Too little or too much sleep.
  4. Extreme emotions (joy, sad, anger).
  5. There are many, many other ways.
It's important to eliminate or minimize these to have a successful Qigong practice and to be happy, healthy and in harmony.


One of the most important aspects you will learn as part of Qigong is relaxation. Relaxing is important to activate the body's healing response. Relaxing means to let go of tension and stress that is held in the body. It also means to let go of tension and stress in the mind.

Relaxing the mind allows for a deeper state of relaxation to occur in the body. So what exactly does it mean to relax your mind?

Being of Service

In a world of so much plenty, there are still so many people around the world in need of help. They lack basic necessities of life, like clean water, food and shelter. 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 that I recommend is helping an entire village by donating to "Compassion for African Villages". Open your heart and your wallet to provide an African village with clean water. There is so much need. Please donate today. You can make a difference.
