QI, Qi gong

Is Beer Sucking Your Life Away?


This week, I was at a party with a group of people
from a much different walk of life than myself.
Most of them were just working people with good
jobs and a family. They all drove nice cars and
had pizza one day a week. They liked to stop at
Popeye’s for fried chicken now and then and ate
Campbell soup on cold days. They all liked to
party and were very fond of their beer. To this
day, they all spent hours a week working on their
suntans, drinking, and eating a lot of
bar-B-Q. For the most part, they were all
Americans with strong values. Most of the people
at the party went to church every Sunday and
belonged to a bowling league. They were very sweet
and came from good families.

The friend who invited me I knew from high school,
and he lived in my old neighborhood. It was a
delight to see him and hear about his wife and
kids. When the conversation came around to what I
was doing, that is, acupuncture, people either
didn’t have a clue to what I was talking about, or
thought it was just a scam and asked if it really
worked. The conversation went okay until I started
to talk about our energy body and how internal
exercises like Qigong would make the quality of
their life better. You would have thought I was
from another planet by everyone’s reaction. I told
them that I am starting my day with Qigong and
meditation, and I could feel the difference in my
energy all day long. That’s when the comments
started to fly…”What the Sam Hill is Qigong?” I
got a lot of heckling, and so did my friend who
invited me. “Your friend’s a hippie, isn’t he?”
“Do you eat tofu?” “You a yogi?” And it went on
until they found out that I was the same age as my
friend, but looked and felt 20 years younger than

Jeff is a good guy, but he looks like he was
riding the range for 50 years and most of his
friends looked the same. All of a sudden, the
women wanted to know if I’d teach them and,
reluctantly, their husbands followed suit. I
explained that Qigong is a Chinese exercise for
strengthening and balancing body and mind. Qigong
means cultivation (gong) of energy (Qi). Besides
revitalizing the body, Qigong calms the mind by
its soft movements, visualizations, and direct
contact with nature. The soft movements stimulate
the blood circulation to the internal organs. By
absorbing nature’s energy, we restore the
harmonious energy flow within our body. This
energy flow boosts the immune system, repairs
damaged cells, and balances emotions. If the flow
of energy is disrupted, dis-ease or pain may
occur. I continued explaining that the regular
practice of Qigong has a lot of anti-aging
benefits: balances emotions, eases chronic pain,
brings mental clarity, boosts the immune system,
promotes self-love and confidence, and helps to
put things into perspective.

“If the mind is calm, the heart listens.”

Acupressure is based on the same principles,
meridians, and acupuncture points. Meridians are
channels through which vital energy or Qi runs.
The energy flow through these meridians or rivers
of energy can become interrupted or blocked by
stress, anger or disease. Through specific points,
we can manipulate and rebalance this energy flow.
In natural healing, Qi follows the mind and blood,
then oxygen follows the Qi. This Qi or ‘life force
energy’ will mobilize the immune system and repair
damaged cells. Whereas conventional exercise lead
to consumption of energy, Qigong gathers and
rebalances the energy within our body.

Before the night was over, I had half of the
people at the party wanting more information. As
they passed me a cold beer, I told them about my
website and how they could get a copy of the
Flying Crane Qi Gong
and start reversing the aging process. If you need a
boost in your health and vitality, get on the
program now before it’s too late.

I wish you the best in your Health, Wealth, and
