Chi & Meditation


Meditation is a mental discipline by which one attempts to get beyond the reflexive, "thinking" mind into a deeper state of relaxation, Meditation is an intensely personal and spiritual experience. The desired purpose of each meditation technique is to channel our awareness into a more positive direction by totally transforming one's state of mind. Spiritual power gives you the power to choose creative thinking rather than automated thinking, response rather than reaction, peace, love and harmony rather than stress, conflict.

CHI : The word chi in Chinese can mean different things in the direct translation, it can mean air or breathing however when it is taken further it can mean energy temper, tension or endurance. The earliest breathing exercise is called yick Kan ging. This exercise was developed over 5000 years ago by a Taoist priest named kwong shing sze. It was based on the objective rules of nature with the ultimate aims of preventing and healing disease to achieve longevity.
The Flow of Chi : There are 32 known meridians of which 24 belong to the organs and bowels while the other eight govern other function of the body. Each organ and bowel has a pair of meridians: one flow on the right side and one flows on the left side. One can imagine the meridian as a train route. The pressure point is like a train station and the commuters are the chi (Internal Energy) which flows along the meridian. The chi gets on and off at the pressure point as the commuter get on and off at the train station.
