Grandmaster Tse’s Qìgōng Dāo 氣功道 423

Everybody has Jīng Qì Shén. It is our Qì, but each stage describes how our Qì develops. When we feel good, our Jīng Qì Shén is good.

Jīng Qì Shén 精氣神 and Hún Pò 魂魄

Part 1

A student asked, what is the difference between Jīng Qì Shén 精氣神 and Hún Pò 魂魄? This is a good question and was one I had never thought about, as in Qìgōng 氣功 and Kūng Fū 功夫 we only ever talk about Jīng Qì Shén less talk about Hún Pò, in general terms, is like what in the west people think is the soul, but it is not the same. In Chinese we say Hún Pò is like the soul, but when we study it in depth, we see that it is not the soul, it is more like our mind, our abilities, our nature and even includes our immune system. So, Hún Pò is more complicated. I have already described what Hún Pò, so I will not explain it here in depth again.

Everybody has Jīng Qì Shén. It is our Qì, but each stage describes how our Qì develops. When we feel good, our Jīng Qì Shén is good. When we practise Qìgōng, the Qì comes to our body and stays in the Dāntián 丹田, then it becomes Jīng. Jīng is our sexual energy. We are like every living thing in the world, we will reproduce to create off spring, so when the Jīng develops, we will think about reproduction.
