taichiqigong …the only way we can know ourselves is to get comfortable with the fact that radical attentiveness' inner observation and direct experience are the superior pathways to self-knowing and healing.

taichiqigong The internal circulation of vitality occurs naturally, as is the accumulation of vital force through the breath and the energy gates. However, when you turn your attention to fostering the natural process of circulation there is an increase. If you focus your attention carefully inside, you will actually feel the internal medicine working.

taichiqigong Breathe from your Belly

PRACTICE:

- As you inhale, imagine that your belly is a big balloon that you’re slowly filling with air.

- Place your hands on your belly while you slowly inhale.

- Watch your hands as they rise with your in-breath.

- Watch your hands fall as you slowly breathe out, letting the air out of the balloon.

- As you exhale, make sure your belly stays relaxed.

- Take at least two or three more slow and deep breaths, making sure to keep your attention on the rise and fall of your belly.

Breathing slowly and deeply into and out of your belly is a signal to your mind and body to let go of stress and improve your health and happiness.

Doing belly-breathing lowers your blood pressure, relaxes your muscles, and helps you manage your emotions. Belly-breathing creates peace in your mind as well as your body.

taichiqigong Primordial Qigong, Wuji Gong, purposefully uses spiraling to metaphorically, and even actually, neutralize time to create an "atmosphere" of or a "portal" to the vibrant though fleeting present wherein the most precious (and neglected) aspects of the self can become more palpable.

taichiqigong AWAKENING THE FORCE WITHIN

THE FORCE is a binding, metaphysical and ubiquitous power that is everywhere in the Universe.

THE FORCE includes -
The Living Force which represents the energies of all living things. These energies weave in to the totality of all FORCE, The Cosmic Force, that binds the galaxy(s) together. These powers, energies -- in living, intelligent, spiritual beings -- can be sensed and enhanced through Jedi Training — known on Earth as Qigong. Some have a natural sensitivity to THE FORCE, others are able to cultivate a sensitivity and capacity to sense and use the force.

According to Jedi Masters, the FORCE is accessed by "feeling" -- awareness.

Interestingly, practitioners of cultivators of THE FORCE are not invincible or immune to dark or evil influences, especially the emotions associated with anger, fear, loss, jealousy. THE FORCE is energy — like Qi — however, it is mobilized, sensed, utilized through the emotions and consciousness.

The most Revered of the Jedi Masters: "My ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us."
Jedi Master Yoda "All energy from the Living Force, from all things that have ever lived, feeds into the Cosmic Force, binding everything and communicating to us through microscopic, intelligent lifeforms that live within the cells of all living beings."
Jedi Master Qui – Gon Jinn "The Force is what gives the Jedi their power. It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us; it binds the galaxy together.
Jedi Master Obi Wan Kenobi

MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!

taichiqigong Brain Hemisphere Dominance:
Thousands of years ago the oriental practitioners of self-care disciplines intuitively developed an awareness of an alternating cycle of the predominance of body activity from the right side of the body to the left side. One particular Qigong practice, Taiji, is founded on a constant, flowing of the limbs in circular motions, alternating from right to left. The side of the body that bears the weight is planted, stable, and associated with the Yin. The side that is free to move and kick is active and associated with the Yang. Constant alternations of right and left side activity are thought to balance the forces of Yin and Yang in the body. Focusing on the right and left sides alternatively activates, and reputedly balances, the right and left motor centers in the brain.

taichiqigong Shift of Neurotransmitter Profile
Much of the new science of psychoneuroimmunology is founded upon findings in the area of neurohormones, neuropeptides or neurotransmitters. It has already been mentioned that neurotransmitter receptor sites have been found on lymphocytes. A particular profile of neurotransmitters is present in a person who is experiencing pain, anxiety or depression. (59) In contrast joy, comfort or celebration produce unique neurotransmitter profiles as well. (60) In hypertension, pain and inflammation, which have been associated with the hyperactivity of the sympathetic aspect of the autonomic nervous system, a number of specific neurotransmitters are present in the blood. In patients suffering from pain, increased norepinephrine, reduced cholinesterase and depressed beta endorphine were found to be typical. (59) When methods are employed that regulate the sympathetic function through the hypothalamus a neurotransmitter profile characterized by decreased norepinephrine, elevated cholinesterase and elevated beta endorphine emerge. (59)
The neurotransmitter profile present in the parasympathetic and usually more anabolic (alkaline) environment is recognized as able to reduce pain and depression (59), reduce cravings for addictive substances (61) and promote healing. Chinese research has quantified neurotransmitter activity specific to Qigong exercise. It was found that the Qigong effect is associated with specific shifts in the monoamine neurotransmitter content of the blood. (62) 5HT and 5HE generally tend to be decreased by Qigong practice. Noradrenaline and dopamine tend to increase. The aspects of Qigong and Yoga that quiet the mind and relax the body induce a neurotransmitter profile that is conducive to healing.
