Meditation Series 2 Qigong/Tai Chi







Meditation is a healthy spiritual practice that anyone can do.  Meditating has benefits to your physical, mental, and spiritual body.  A nice way to feel calm, relaxed, and conscious of your thoughts.  Meditating doesn't have to be sitting in a chair or on the floor, holding a Lotus position.

Meditating can be walking in a beautiful forest listening to the birds or sitting in front of an ocean and watching the waves roll in and out.  Meditating can be playing your musical instrument for yourself.

One form of meditating is Qigong/Tai Chi.  Qigong is defined  as a holistic system of holding different body postures, while being in the present moment, observing our whole bodies, breath, and being.  We are aware of all our slow movements.  Qigong is slow, focused movements meant to be used for health (exercise, meditation, and martial arts.  Qigong has it's roots from Chinese medicine and martial arts.  It was traditionally used to grow and balance a person's Life Force energy or your Chi.  Tai Chi is used in martial arts practice.

 The graceful movements of QiGong/Tai Chi are like dancing in slow motion.  I found it to be really beautiful to watch in the movie "The Last Airbender."  Here is a link, so you can observe what I'm talking about.

I realize there is a slight difference between Tai Chi and Qigong, but for meditating purposes, I find none.  Here are links to Yang Tai Chi. https://youtu.be/a6pJf2otwv8

Notice the slow movements.

When you practice this, it will slow your mind down.  It tends to help  ground oneself due to being aware of each muscle group moving.  This practice will put your consciousness back into your body.  Practicing Qigong/Tai Chi helps  to empty the mind and to relax.  Enjoy  this rewarding  form of meditation.

Learning and following Tai Chi or Qigong is a easy, relaxing way to become healthy.
Quiet your mind and you will be healthier for it.  Get rid of the "monkey chatter."

Relax the mind and body.
