Qigong (also spelled “qigong” or “chi kung”) is an ancient Chinese practice that involves the cultivation and manipulation of qi (also spelled “chi” or “ki”), which is often translated as “life energy” or “vital energy.” This energy is said to flow through the body and the universe, and is believed to be responsible for our physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Qigong is often used as a form of self-healing and healing others.
Qigong can Help Your Health and Wellness
Qigong can be used as a form of self-healing, as it is believed to help balance the body’s energy or Qi and promote healing from within. Many people who practice qigong find that it helps them to feel:
- more relaxed
- and balanced
It can also help to reduce stress and anxiety, improve sleep, and boost the immune system.
Qigong can also be used as a form of Metta – the practice of sending compassion, love, healing, and well wishes to others. Metta may be hard to measure – but it certainly can be helpful when we send positive Qi to our friends, family, loved ones, co-workers, people we know, and people we don’t know. Here is a simple practice:
As simple and gentle as this practice looks, it truly can be helpful! Give it a try, send your light, love, and well wishes to yourself and out into the world!
