Vital Qi Newsletter - Thanksgiving Edition November 2012

Instructor's Corner

Welcome to the Vital Qi Newsletter. I hope you enjoy this special holiday edition of the Vital Qi Newsletter. During the holiday season, it is important to give thanks for all that we have. Gratitude is a key ingredient for developing a Qigong healing mind.

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. Please feel free to share this newsletter with family and friends.

While we celebrate being thankful during this holiday season, I am here to remind us that we should strive to have an attitude of gratitude all year long. This is essential for cultivating a healing mind, which is a major goal for having a successful daily Qigong practice. There are many ways to develop an attitude of gratitude. Here are a few.

First, as soon as you get out of bed in the morning, sit quietly and silently express gratitude for at least three things in your life. These things could include your life, spouse, family, friends, pets, job, health, etc. One thing we all tend to take for granted is just being alive. Yes, we should be grateful just to be alive. You can incorporate this into a morning or evening meditation program or prayer. You can also write down these things that you are grateful for in a Gratitude Journal (fancy words for a notebook dedicated to those things that we are grateful for). Then after you have done this for some time, you will be able to review your journal and reflect on these things over the past year.

Second, you can express your gratitude directly to those around you, to your family, friends, acquaintances, strangers, the hair stylist, the waiter or waitress, the cashier, etc. It is difficult to imagine our lives without these people in our life. We should let them know, not just during the holidays, but all year long.

In Qigong, we often talk about relaxing your mind. Well guess what, being grateful for all of the abundance in your life, no matter what challenges we face, is one of the keys to relaxing your mind. When you are expressing gratitude, you may feel love, compassion, generosity, and kindness. These qualities open your heart and open your mind. In this state, your mind and body will begin to relax. The more we can hold these feelings of gratitude, the easier relaxation will come and thus yielding greater healing, health and abundance. With that said, I am grateful for my Qigong teachers, who gave me the insights that I apply in my own life and that I am able to share with you in the form of this newsletter and through teaching Qigong.

Best Qi Wishes,

Words of Wisdom

Qigong Tips

There are two very important principles to relaxing and opening your mind. They are letting go of negative issues from your past and expressing gratitude for all that you have. Letting go may involve forgiveness if there is blame involved. Forgive yourself and others. Let go of negative feelings. Once you have let go of these things, you will begin to open your heart. Now express gratitude for everything in your life.

Being of Service

People along the east coast are cleaning up after being hit by Hurricane Sandy. They are faced with difficult times as they rebuild their lives. Some are without shelter, 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.
