You are a force of energy and that energy is everywhere. This means that you are a part of everything, and everything is connected to you. This is one of many beliefs in ancient Asian healing practices which focus on balancing your qi (pronounced chee) energy to receive maximum health and wellness benefits. If you have a hard time wrapping your mind around the thought that you are connected to the universe, you should at least understand how energy flows through your physical and nonphysical bodies.
Qi (sometimes spelled chi or ki) is the name for a Far East concept that attempts to describe the life force or energy flow that moves through all living things. The website QiEnergyExercises.com does a good job of putting a simple definition on this complex concept by stating …
“Qi is the Chinese term for life energy, or life spirit, a vital force that flows through all living things.”
The Western world is largely in its adolescence when compared to older ancient civilizations and cultures. In the Western world, most people believe in mental and physical health, and emotions or feelings. Your health and wellness is considered your individual group of characteristics. Many eastern cultures teach that you are part of a life force energy which has always been present and which will continue existing after your physical body is gone. You are connected rather than alone.
You Can Harness the Power of Qi Whenever You Like
This is qi, and you can consciously work to enhance how positively it fills your life. There are exercises and lifestyle practices which keep this vital life force energy flowing through and around you, and when this happens, you experience spiritual and physical, emotional and mental fulfillment and achievement.
If this important energy force is blocked somewhere in your metaphysical or physical energy pathways, problems happen. Just as a traffic jam can totally disrupt your entire day, blocked energy channels can affect your mind and body, spirit and emotions, and not in a positive manner.
Reiki, Reflexology and Acupuncture
There are several energy healing practices which help you remove negative energy and make room for free-flowing life force energy. Reflexology, acupuncture and Reiki are just three of many energy healing practices which help you develop an abundance of qi. Some of these practices have been around for thousands of years and can lead to overall health and well-being through the conscious enhancement of your life force energy, or qi.
