- Chi Dynamics has five methods of exhalation: FU, CHUI, TU, PI AND XI.
- These breathing methods help to attain and maintain good health by balancing the functions of each organ and its related element. They also hep to bring the body into harmony with the outside forces of the earth and universe to achieve health and self-healing.
- Of the five breathing methods, only FU, CHUI AND TU are suitable for the healing of cancer patients. All cancer care trainers must be efficient in these three methods as they enhance the auto immune system and help to heal the body.
- Inhale deeply through the nose using the Tan Tien as the focus with the tongue placed just behind the upper front teeth to act as a conductor or bridge for the Qi energy to flow down the front of the body along the Ren channel (Yin channel).
- Hold for 4 to 6 seconds.
- Exhale through the nose slowly and hold for up to 6 seconds.
- This exercise may be practised in the standing, sitting or lying down position.
- To accumulate Qi energy and store the Qi in the lower Tan Tien.
- Like steel, this form of energy is cooling, contracting and absorbs external energy for the benefit of the patient.
- It is also used by cancer care instructors to intensify the electromagnetic energy in the hands for healing others.
- Relaxation response is stimulated, and stress will be released after 30 minutes.
CHUI(Related Element: Water)
- Like the Fu method, inhale through the nose and hold for 4 to 6 seconds.
- Pucker up and exhale gently through the pursed (whistling) lips at a constant and controlled rate.
- Longer exhalation of 9 top 12 seconds will result in more alkaline and this will help relax the body.
- This exercise may be practised in the standing, sitting or lying down position.
- To cool down the body; this helps to reduce stress, emotional tension and anxiety.
- To enrich the oxygen in the blood and enhance Qi flow.
Stress is reduced.
Tensions in the upper body is released as over heated neck and shoulders are cooled down; headaches are also cleared.
TU (Related Element: Wood)
- Inhale with slightly greater force and hold breath for 6 seconds.
- Exhale slowly for 9 seconds with a controlled and guttural “haaa” through the mouth.
- Throughout this exercise, the pelvis is kept locked by contracting the gluteus muscles of the buttocks and the anus.
- As this technique is used in exercises involving all the organs below the diaphragm, it is best practised standing up.
- This method is not for relaxation; instead, it energises the kidneys, liver, spleen and digestive organs; it also nourishes the bones.
After 30 minutes, energy and heat will flow to the body.
- After 30 minutes, energy and heat will flow to the body.
- The low impact Flicking Hand exercise with gentle movements and stretching exercises are good for healing and well-being.
- Since our lymph nodes need muscular movements to detox, a good exercise is the Shoulder Roll (Snake and Turtle forms) exercise. Besides achieving harmony of movements, these exercises stimulate the left and right sides of the brain as well as the internal organs.
- With hands at the side of the body, elbow and shoulders relaxed, flick the hands sideways inwards and outwards for one to three minutes. This action, which involves movement of the wrists, is like when we flick our hands dry.
- Next, turn the palms upwards and flick your hands for a further one to three minutes.
- Then turn the palms downward and continue flicking the hands for another one to three minutes.
- On completion, stay in the standing posture for at least 3 minutes to allow the energy to flow freely throughout and nourish the body.
- When flicking, walk slowly in a circle for ten minutes.
- The upward flicking movements open the lungs, pericardium and heart meridians.
- The downward flicking movements open the meridians of the large intestine, triple warmer and the small intestine.
- The exercise stimulates blood circulation to the limbs of the body and boosts Qi flow to the organs.
- It also enhances detoxification and tones muscles.
SHOULDER ROLL(Snake Form)
- This exercise is performed in two positions – the Yin and Yang stances.
- Stand with legs together, knees touching and slightly bent.
- Maintain a light contraction on the perineum or Hui Yin and focus on it throughout the exercise.
- Use strong Chui breathing – in on the upward movement of the shoulder and out on the downward movement.
- Make large backward circular movements with your shoulders with the front shoulder lower than the back shoulder before each roll.
- At the end of one to three minutes, move on to the Yang Stance.
- Stand with feet at shoulder width apart and use strong Chui breathing.
- Lift and pull the shoulders back alternately making large circular movements in the process.
- The weight of the body should be transferred from one leg to the other.
- On completion of the exercise, stay in the standing posture and breathe out with Fu method of exhalation.
- Adopt the standing posture, ‘lock’ your pelvis and keep it tilted forward with the anus slightly contracted.
- Gently arch body forward, drop the shoulders and ‘lock’ the neck as you breathe in.
- While holding your breath, stretch the neck upwards and roll the shoulders upwards, and then pull them back.
- Exhale using the Tu breathing method with the body slightly bending forward and extend your hands down in front of the thighs as you exhale.
- Hold for 4 seconds after exhalation and then relax your body.
- Repeat the sequence of movements 9 times.
- In combination with the Snake form, this exercise relaxes the neck and shoulder muscles.
- When performed with a longer more drawn-out inhalation exhalation, this exercise is said to enhance longevity.
- Ultimately, these exercises will clear the toxins, enhance oxygen in the blood with better blood circulation.
- Lymphatic toxins are also removed by the shoulder rolls with Chui breathing.
- This exercise improves lymphatic flow in both the upper and lower parts of the body.
- It also brings into effect Yin/Yang balance, aids coordination between right/left brain and mind (Yi)/Qi, regulates upper and lower body movements and breath, and stimulate all the meridians in the hands and legs.
- Step One: With both feet together, angle the left foot at 45 degrees and move the right foot a step forward.
- Step Two: Stretch out and pull arms towards chest with the palms crossed and facing the body while breathing in. For females, the left palm should be over the right, and for males, the reverse.
- Step Three: Hold your breath and as you turn your palms to face the front, transfer your body weight to the back leg and lift the toes of the front foot.
- Step Four: While holding your breath, raise your arms and circle above the head. Your eyes should follow the upward movements of the hands.
- Step Five: Bring your fully stretched arms down to the sides of your body. Lift up front toes as the body weight is being transferred to the back leg. Commence exhaling using the Tu method.
- Step Six: Swing your hands upwards as they pass the hips to resume the starting position with your body weight now transferred back to the front leg.
- Repeat the above sequence 9 times for each leg.
MEDITATIONS WITH HEALING SOUNDS
- In Chi Dynamics, vibrations, rather than sounds, stimulate healing. The sound levels merely establish the strength of vibration,
- The vibrations created during exhalation stimulate the vibratory frequency of the corresponding internal organ energy system.
- Together with meditation, the rhythmic Fu breathing method and the Qi ball exercise, healing sounds create a peaceful mental state of mind and aids the healing process.
- The exercise can be done standing, sitting or lying down, and it is good to play soothing music during meditation.
- 30 minutes of meditation will help to release tensions from the mind and distract the mind from the earthly and unnecessary worries.
Open-Eye Candlelight Meditation
Objective: To stimulate a positive sense of wellness
- Start up by rubbing hands, knees, arms and face.
- This process stimulates warmth, closes the pores of the skin and enables better skin blood circulation superficially.
- At the same time, increase your oxygen intake by doing strong "Chui" breathing.
- Focus eyes on the candle light after the 20 intakes of deep “Chui” breathing, revert to "Fu" breathing with extended exhalation time.
- A ratio of one to three is recommended but this not imperative if you are a novice. Just do what you are comfortable with.
- Remember that in Chi Dynamics, the principle is to practise within your own optimal ability and not overstretch yourself to the maximum. So ensure that you are relaxed and not too tensed up when doing this exercise
- Place your index finger and the thumb touch in a ring like circle gently not firmly. This is the stimulation of the Lungs n Large intestine meridians, a sign for the Ren and Tu Mai Or Channels to be activated.
- Do not ask how much time you should stay in this posture. You will know when your feel a warm sensation from the base of the spine rising upwards to the "bai Hui".
- Once you feel this, move the thumb to touch lightly with the middle finger the Pericardial meridian, and then move the both rings upwards to your heart or mid section the middle Tan Tien. This stimulates emotional stability and blissfulness.
- When you feel a cascading sensation flowing downwards from the crown to your face and down to the torso, you have succeeded the Ren channel and a circulation of Qi with flow along the inner orbit, the lungs and heart meridians.
- A sense of peace and wellness will prevail.
- To stimulate heat, touch the thumb with the ring finger (the triple warmer meridian), and revert your breathing to soft "Pi" breathing.
- With your hands raised higher above your shoulders, focus on the lower Tan Tien and at the same time use the “FIRE” breathing to heat up. This will weaken all viral, pre-cancer cells and bacteria.
- You will perspire but try not to swallow your salvia as it may retard your Qi flow; however, should you do, there is no harm at all.
- Listen to your inner self and your body will signal when to close this session.
- Your left brain normally dominates the right brain but during mediation, your right brain activity which is intuitive comes into play. This “inner intelligence” will prompt you when to stop the session.
- Your sixth sense may be enhanced with this meditation.
- Close your eyes and focus your upper Tan Tien inward to allow the Qi flow to cascade downwards.
- Revert to "Fu" breathing with longer exhalation.
- Then return your hands to the first posture slowly, with the thumb and index fingers touching.
- You may sense tremors, swaying or even vibrational flows. These sensations are attributed to the stimulation of the Belt, Thrust and all the meridians and Channels of Ren and Tu humming to the flows of Qi.
- If you do experience this you will never ask what is Qi flow? Congratulations! Join the club of select Chi Dynamics Qigong Meditation practitioners.
- Remember practice makes perfect. There is no mysticism or spiritualism involved, only neurological, physiological and blood circulatory stimulation.
- Your "Yi" will be much, much stronger when you use it well to share with and help others who need Qi. However, do not force Qi down to anyone, it should be by example. You will radiate with the Glow of Qi.
WU MEI SLAPPING BAG
The slapping bag is used to condition your health and general wellness. When you practise with it regularly for just 20 minutes daily, the benefits are:
- Stronger inner strength in the slapping hands
- Enhanced stance and more power in your legs and knees
- Better stamina and ease of breathing
- Prevents and heal joint aches and pains, and also ‘trigger finger’ syndrome
- Improves blood circulation to the lungs, heart, large Intestines, pericardium, triple warmers and small intestine; also gives a good rosy complexion on your face.
- Fill up the bag with beans, maize or rice. When using the bag, place a light towel or cotton cloth over the bag; this is to keep the bag clean.
- Apply the herbal alcohol on your palm and the back of hands before hitting the bag. (The herbal alcohol is prepared by mixing herbal powder with Chinese rice wine, and let to stand for two weeks before use).
- Loosen up your muscles as per Qigong session – i.e. hand flicking, shoulder rolls for 10 minutes. This is essential to prevent muscular strains.
- Place the bag on a sturdy stand. Then in Qigong stance, breathe gently at an easy pace into lower abdomen with your hands relaxed.
- Focus your Yi below the surface of the bag to the bottom, your intent is your power.
- Then raise your palm above your head and let it fall easily on the bag; do not use force. In the beginning, very little force is felt. However, your hands will feel the Qi power after about 6 sessions (please read the chapter on this technique in Grandmaster Anthony Wee’s book; if need be, ask him to demonstrate when you meet up with him next)
- Slap in the 5 methods as shown at a slow pace; there is need to no rush.
- Optimally, each technique is repeated 100 times, making a total of 500 hits.
- When finished, apply the herbal lotion again and massage all fingers and joints of the knuckles. If you feel tenderness, rub more with the lotion. Eventually you will have no pain, yet your hands are still supple, soft and stronger with Qi power.
