Qìgōng and the Cycle of Life
When we practise Qìgōng, our movements can be shaking, turning, going up, going down, going left, going right, in fact all kinds of different movements.
These movements are cleaning the body using a natural way, from nature and the air. Our body needs to relax, have good posture, move from the waist, connect with the acupuncture points and the Jīng luò 經絡 (Channels). We should also move from the inside to the outside and always we should also breathe through the nose, let the breathing follow the movements without thinking about it. It is best to practise under the sky, out in nature and surrounded by a good, natural environment. This will allow us to recharge our Qì 氣. We should practise to the point we feel good. Then we can do some meditation and this can be standing, sitting on a chair, in lotus position or even lying down, though only recommend this last method of not able to do any others. Meditation stores our Qì after doing our Qigong movements. Moving will help us gather a lot of Qì and we should then sink it to the Dāntián 丹田, so just like washing our clothes then we need to hang them up to dry.
