In this video we will practice a simple Qigong exercise that is wonderful for stress relief and calming a busy mind.
Everyday we are exposed to so much stimulation, images, advertisement, “noise” and pressure. We have so many things that we should be doing and could be doing that we can easily feel overwhelmed.
- Do you multi task all the time?
- Do you often forget what you were doing?
- Do you feel overwhelmed because you can think clearly?
- Are you constantly thinking and re-thinking the same thoughts?
These are all signs of an overactive mind. Its is understandable that we would feel like this nowadays!
This simple Qigong exercise will help! It is called “Clearing the Heavens.”
We have mainly 3 heavens in the body. The upper, middle, and lower. When we are overthinking the upper heaven, located between the eyebrows (also known as the third eye or yintang acupuncture point) becomes over active and stagnant.
This exercise will help to “clear” the upper heaven. Think of it like washing out a glass – you just flush all the stagnation and debris away!
In this video we practiced about 10 times. You can easily practice for 5-10 minutes once or twice a day. Just focus on relaxing, letting go of all the noise and connecting with the Dan Tian or the lower heaven.
This was featured in a recent practice that we have in the Communi Qi membership site called “Reel-ly Nice Qigong.” It is a invigorating practice that really helps unwind a tight body and helps your Qi flow smoothly!
