What is Qigong?
The National Qigong Association (NQA) states “Qigong is an ancient Chinese health care system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques and focused intention.”
According to the NQA, the word Qigong (Chi Kung) is made up of two Chinese words. Qi is pronounced chee and is usually translated to mean the life force or vital-energy that flows through all things in the universe. The second word, Gong, pronounced gung, means accomplishment, or skill that is cultivated through steady practice. Together, Qigong (Chi Kung) means cultivating energy, it is a system practiced for health maintenance, healing and increasing vitality.
I recommend learning and practicing QiGong. QiGong can help open your energy centers where healing can take place. It can help you to feel centered and grounded. QiGong is mediation in motion. Learn the moves so that you can forget them consciously. Learn just a few simple moves and begin. If you are handicapped, you may visualize the movements and receive health benefits just as you would from meditating.
Tiger Woods has had a long and prestigious golfing career. He is arguably one of the greatest golfers in American history. Tiger Woods has been a disciple of sports hypnosis since he was 13. He uses sport hypnosis to calm his mind before golfing matches. He frees his mind from worry and pressure, and this technique allows him to perform better. The brain does not function at its full potential during every moment of the day. Hypnosis helps athletes channel more of their brain power and focus their energy. Anyone can call upon this power and use more of their mind. Using more of one’s mind can help an athlete achieve new records and accomplish things they had not done before.

Hypnosis for Goal Achievement
Effective goal setting and achievement takes time and patience. Accomplishing your goals takes determination. A major problem people have is setting long term goals, but not taking the time to figure out the steps to achieve the goals. Hypnotherapy can help find the motivation and confidence you need to successfully achieve your goals. Motivation and a positive attitude are helpful in maintain goals and hypnotherapy helps you develop and find these characteristics within yourself. Goal setting requires completion and reward and striving to find this is the ultimate achievement. Meditation, self-hypnosis and guided imagery are useful aids to achieve success.

Today I had the opportunity to be the substitute instructor for a Cancer Survivor group’s “Gentle Yoga” class. Although I am not a certified Yoga instructor, I do incorporate some stretches and poses into my workouts. Because the class was titled “Gentle Yoga”, I pulled up a “Chair Yoga” workout on line and modified it a bit.
If you have difficulty standing or are just getting started with exercising, I recommend trying a chair yoga workout. Hold each pose, if possible for 3-5 breaths. The breaths should be long, slow, belly breaths. Breathe in through the nose and out through the nose.
If a pose doesn’t feel right, skip it. The workout should feel good. It should help open up your energy centers and get your blood flowing.
Following the exercises try my meditation. Sit comfortably or lie down. Take a few deep breaths and close your eyes. Imagine relaxation moving throughout your body, beginning in your toes and traveling all the way up to your forehead. As you continue to breath and relax imagine yourself in a serene setting such as the beach, or by a lake, or lying in a hammock, etc. While you are relaxing in your special place build an image of yourself the way you would like to be in the future. Imagine merging into that image. After 5-10 minutes or whenever you feel ready you may open your eyes and stretch.
