Originally more than 5 years ago now, I was highly skeptical of this kind of thing. To be honest, I thought it was “wacky” but due to my prior martial arts background I simply had to know for myself what if anything this Chi stuff was truly about. So I made a dedicated decision to do Qigong everyday for a full year to prove or disprove the existence of the so-called “Chi” or “life force energy” to myself. I practiced consistently each and every day and corresponded regularly with my first instructor, Sifu Robin Jones to review my training. Even though I was feeling healthier and more alive, I didn’t have any physical experience that proved Chi was something real. I continued and pressed on even though my mind kept nagging me saying: “This is stupid, you are wasting your time.” However after 7-months of persistent practice, something magical happened. I could feel the energy both inside and outside my body. My hands felt like powerful magnets repelling each other and I had the internal sensation of electrical currents flowing throughout my entire body. Little did I know how much Qigong was going to change my life for the better. I have lost 55 lbs, dramatically improved my physical, emotional and mental health, as well as gaining healing ability by helping my friends and family members recover from or heal from their own medical issues. This has been by far the greatest discovery of my life! My only wish now is to share this with anyone who is willing to listen.
I became a Chi fanatic and as a result, I have over 7,000+ hours of internal energetic training experience from a variety of systems (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Tibetan, Indian) and I can emit my bio-energy so that others can actually feel and experience the reality of this natural phenomenon themselves. This energy is not something that you imagine, it is something that you can actually feel and share with others. Anyone can do this! This is a natural ability inherent in the human system. Just like lifting weights makes one physically stronger, Qigong exercises, breathing methods and meditations makes one’s bio-energy stronger as well. The hardest part is finding someone that can actually show you the real thing so that you can make a personal connection to the energy both internally and externally. Many Qigong teachers (as well as books & videos) show the movements or exercises, but most either don’t or cannot give the student their own energy experience, which eventually leads to the ability for them to do this on their own. I have found that even in the presence of someone highly skilled at Qigong, approximately one-third of students don’t feel much initially until they consistently practice for at least a month. The simple fact is that you are learning to tune into energy frequencies that you have simply not been aware of for most of your life.
I have been both lucky and fortunate in this regard and have received a high degree of openly shared knowledge from legitimate Qigong Masters. As a recent example, my mother in-law has had dangerously elevated platelets in her blood for nearly 11-years. Her doctor told her that this condition could develop into Leukemia so it was a serious matter. Traditional western medicine had failed to help her lower her platelet counts with during this 11-yr period. They were able to find the problem but nothing they did normalized her blood. The medications prescribed also put her at an elevated risk for a stroke. Her platelet levels ran anywhere from 750,000 to 900,000, which is more than double the high end of what is considered normal range. I began treating her with my emitted chi June of 2006. She had a quick spike up in her platelet levels to the 1-million mark and then they quickly dropped to normal range 400,000 in September 2006 and have remained in normal range since then without the need for additional treatments.
Qigong healing methods can correct emotional issues as well. I once treated a young woman who had an irrational fear of cats. She was so afraid of them that she wouldn’t get out of her car if she saw a stray cat in the driveway. In fact, just talking about cats caused her anxiety. She had been attending psychological therapy and group sessions since she was 10 years old and nothing helped. She said that she was actually more afraid instead of less. As a result, they were going to put her on an anxiety medication when I found out about her issue. I treated her 2 times in the course of a week and she is now complexly free of this fear. In fact, she even has a pet cat now. I have assisted many other people with their health problems both minor and more serious utilizing Chi, but it would be redundant to discuss this further since the medical profession wouldn’t accept this without some kind of study.
Why Teach Now?
Qigong training has provided me with great health and happiness and I truly want others to experience the same. As the saying goes: “You can give a man a fish and feed him for a day or you can teach him to fish and feed him for the rest of his life.” Family, friends and also students whom I’ve instructed privately have encouraged me to offer Qigong training to a larger audience because they have experienced the benefits themselves. My home business and schedule has allowed me to practice Qigong & meditation several hours each day, almost like a hermit or monk living in a cave for over 5-years. I am extremely grateful to have had this time and have always trained with a sense of urgency knowing that one day I would have to come out into the real world and openly share this knowledge for the benefit of others. Compassion is a fundamental philosophy of Qigong, which brings happiness to the heart (yours & mine) when you are capable of helping others live a healthier more joyful life. Whether this help comes from healing Chi or from teaching does not matter, as the intent to help others is still the same. Finally, it is extremely difficult to find quality teaching in this subject, especially in our area. I have been blessed with time and as a result have over 7,000 hours of experience to share not including additional study. I feel that in this regard, the universe has granted me an enormous favor and now it is time for me to return it in kind by sharing my knowledge, experience, energy and time with others.
