WHAT IS LIFE ENERGY OR CHI ENERGY?HOW CAN WE INCREASE OUR CHI ENERGY FLOW? INNER YOGA-48


MEANING OF LIFE ENERGY;-

04 FACTS;-

1-The concept of a life force is found in most of the ancient cultures of the world. In India, it is called prana; in China, chi; in Japan, ki; for Native Americans, the Great Spirit. For all these cultures and others as well, the idea of life force is or was central to their forms of medicine and healing.

2-Both Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture are based on balancing and enhancing chi to bring the body into a state of health.

3-“When the breath wanders, the mind is unsteady, but when the breath is still, so is the mind still.” According toHatha Yoga Pradipika

4-Breathing is vital energy for body and mind.Breath is

life.We could survive for days without food or water. But without oxygen we would die within minutes. It is truly astonishing how little attention we pay to the importance of proper breathing in daily life.

ROLE OF YOGA;-

03 FACTS;-

1-The essence of all yoga exercises is the flow of life energy, called prana in Sanskrit. Prana is the subtle energy that vitalises both body and mind. Different types of pranayamas (breathing exercises) cause the prana to flow and thus revitalise the whole nervous system.

2-Yoga breathing exercises teach us how to control the breath – and with it the mind. The two are always interconnected, as the following example clearly shows: when you are scared or angry, your breathing is shallow, fast and irregular, but when you are relaxed or focused, your breathing slows down.

3-So by regulating our breathing, we increase our uptake of oxygen and vital energy (prana) and also boost our power of concentration. Concentration is in turn the prerequisite for meditation – the practice of which leads to deep inner peace.

WHAT IS CHI ENERGY?-

04 FACTS;-

1-Simply, chi (qi) is that which gives life. In terms of the body, chi is that which differentiates a corpse from a live human being.Chi is a Chinese word meaning aliveness, life force energy or life breath - also known as Ki, Qi or Prana.

2-Theories of traditional Chinese medicine assert that the body has natural patterns of qi associated with it that circulate in channels called meridians in English.

3-To use a Biblical reference, it is that which God breathed into the dust to produce Adam. Chi is also the basis of acupuncture.

4-A strong life force makes a human being totally alive, alert and present while a weak force results in sluggishness and fatigue. You can increase and develop your chi to overcome illness, become more vibrant and enhance mental capacity.

BUILDING CHI IN THE BODY;-

1-Energy can be increased in a human being. Consequently, the development of chi can make an ill person robust or a weak person vibrant. More chi can enhance mental capacity too.

2-The concept of chi also extends beyond the physical body, to the subtle energies that activate all human functions, including emotions and thought. Unbalanced chi causes your emotions to become agitated and distressed. Balanced chi causes your emotions to become smooth and more satisfying.

3-From the perspective of thought, when your mental chi becomes more refined it enhances your creativity at all levels--art, business, relationships, child rearing, etc.

4-Spiritual chi makes it more possible for us to personally enter into higher states of consciousness, which lie at the heart of religious experience.

CHI CIRCULATION;-

1-To maintain pain-free, optimal health, chi or energy should circulate throughout your entire body, without disruption, in a smooth, powerful fashion.

2-The classic Chinese medical phrase is ''teng jr bu tong''. If the circulation of your chi is blocked , you have pain and disease . Conversely, if your chi or life force energy in your acupuncture meridian lines if fully connected and circulating without blockages , you have neither pain nor disease.

3-Balancing out and connecting your chi so that it has no blockages will both get rid of the pain of disease and make you feel a whole lot better.

HOW TO CONNECT WITH CHI ENERGY FLOW : -

1-Rub your palms together very quickly for a few seconds to increase the energetic flow into your hands. You will feel the increased heat of energy there. Now, separate your hands slightly while in a prayer position and hold them there for a count of 3; gently pull them apart 2-3 inches and then immediately back together while leaving a space between to your palms.

2-As you repeat this exercise you will feel the energy build between your palms. Begin to widen the distance between your palms while continually moving them back and forth several times.

3-With practice you will begin to strengthen your energy and promote healing as you place your hands on any area of your body. This is what a Reiki practitioner does when doing energy work.

WAYS OF INCREASING YOUR CHI ENERGY FLOW :-

16 FACTS;-

1-On both the front and the back of your wrists there are many meridians, also known as acupuncture points, where you can see the skin lines. Place your wrists in a crisscross position with both anterior (front) wrists facing each other about one inch apart and hold that position for several seconds.

2-Then do the same with both posterior (back) wrists facing each other about one inch apart in a crisscross position or several seconds. With practice, you will begin to feel your energy. Practice doing this several times a day.

3-This exercise connects the full circuit of your chi energy and clears away blockage along the main meridians throughout your body. It also increases the chi flow by balancing the yin and yang energy within.

4-To complete your energetic circuit, place the tip of your tongue on the roof of your mouth in the dip behind the center of your teeth. Hold it there for several seconds – minutes if possible – as this fully completes the chi energy circuit flow from your brain to your toes and everything else in-between throughout your body.

5-Deep diaphragmatic breathing:- Most people breathe backwards by breathing in through the nose while pulling in the stomach, and exhaling through the mouth while extending the belly. This is backwards! To correctly breathe, take a deep breath in through your nose while simultaneously extending or pushing out your abdomen.
