I was so busy hanging out with Ollie this morning I lost track of time.
I tell you, the older that boy gets the more interesting he gets too!
He’s getting heavily into astronomy and his enthusiasm is infectious, so much so I’m way behind schedule. So what I’m going to do is this…
I’m going to share an email I received yesterday from one of my awesome clients Bob H. and my comments will follow.
Your work and commitment to Qigong education and training is outstanding.
I carry my Shaolin Chi Kung book with me everywhere. During my lunch break, I read one new practice from the book and then practice the exercise in my lunch break in the lunch room. I obtain an audience watching my practice, and then see a few people actually trying some of the exercises. I proved them with your Qigong email address for further information.
Lately I’ve been spending a lot of time sitting down behind the desk and working on projects. After about an hour I get aching and sore neck muscles. This is time to do an exercise. My favourite exercises for this is Rotating Winch and also Big Turn of the Cosmos.
Rotating Winch for neck muscle relief is the greets exercise everybody should be doing. I found the true secret is that the practitioner has to learn to actually relax their neck and shoulder muscles when they reach fig.12 (p.73) when opening the mouth. If they hold that position and relax their shoulder and neck muscles there is an incredible sensation when you feel the top part of your shoulders and neck turn to water as the tight muscles totally relax.
That part of my body just loosens up like jelly. The neck and shoulder ache disappears after 10 repetitions. I strongly recommend this exercise for all people.
Purchasing the Shaolin Chi Kung book for me has been an investment in my health, wellbeing and life.
Thanks Bob =)
Bob’s just given you a very powerful lesson here, and it’s not just how to sort out stiff neck and shoulders from spending too long flying a desk.
Did you catch it?
I’m sure you did, but just in case let me make it clear.
You can practice Qigong exercises as exercises.
At the form level only.
And still gain worthwhile benefits: stretching, relaxing and pain relief for example.
All I’ll say is just realise there’s a huge difference between practicing Qigong exercises at the form level and practicing them as PERFECT Qigong.
But Bob’s been a client of mine for quite a while and knows this well.
Also, it’s worth repeating that this stuff only works if you work it.
Bob’s email makes it clear how you need 3 things to be successful with PERFECT Qigong.
As long as you show up with these 3 things, PERFECT Qigong will help you to live a happier, healthier and longer life.
Here’s what they are:
If you’ve got these, like Bob has in spades, you can gain the benefits of authentic, skills focused Qigong.
Now before I close for today, let me just finish by saying I love getting emails like Bob’s and luckily I get a good amount. It’s a fantastic feeling to know you’re making a positive difference in people’s lives.
