What Blocks Your Natural Healing System?

February 7, 2023 by Elaine Katen

Natural healing remedies are often based on using natural ingredients to promote health and wellness. However, these remedies may not work for everyone, even if they are using the right ingredients. One reason for this is that the body’s own system needs to be able to accept and process the ingredients for the remedy to be effective. If the body is not able to do this, the ingredients may not be absorbed properly and the desired results may not be achieved. Therefore, it’s important to understand that for natural healing remedies to be successful, the body must be in a state that allows it to follow the natural healing process.

Qigong and meditation may help your body prepare to receive additional support.

Simple Qigong for Everyday Benefits

by Elaine Katen

Sit quietly.  Close your eyes, make loose fists, then roll your thumbs forward.

Your thumbs are directly connected to your Lung meridian.  Every time you do this practice, you will be stimulating your Lung function. In Chinese medicine, the Lung is associated with beautiful skin, immune health and longevity.

Practice every day for 5 minutes or more.

How Stress Affects Women

January 20, 2023 by Elaine Katen

Liver is responsible for the smooth flow of Qi. Qi informs the body with messages that allow it to function optimally.

Stress is the number one factor in disrupting the free flow of energy in the body.  When energy gets stuck, all sorts of health issues become apparent.  For women, Liver Qi is the dominant force.  Liver help blood flow smoothly.  For women stagnations can be evident in issues such as PMS, painful periods, infertility, breast tenderness, breast lumps and masses.

Qigong and Elimination

December 7, 2022 by Elaine Katen

If you practice Qigong and constipation remains an issue that means your body hasn’t met the Qi requirement to change.

Think of the Lung and the colon as twin brother and sister. They work together.  If the colon cannot function well, the Lung cannot reach its full potential.  One depends on the other for support.

If you’re thinking, I don’t see the results. Elimination is still a problem, then take a look at your Qigong system.  Does it meet the requirement for change? Have you put in enough effort to effect a change? Quality and quantity will determine your outcomes.

OM Meditation

December 3, 2022 by Elaine Katen

This meditation is intended to help you be part of the Universal symphony.

Each organ has its own tone and its own vibration. Each meridian has its own vibration.

The sound of om will vibrate your pericardium. The vibration of the pericardium has the capability to harmonize the entire body.

Listen carefully as Master Lu explains how to use this meditation.  Then close your eyes and follow his pace of Om.


How to Create a Miracle

by Elaine Katen

Which way can we create a miracle? Everyone wants a miracle. But how do we create this miracle?

The Eastern perspective tells us the only
way to get this kind of experience is through Qi.

You must go through Qi practice, through an invisible doorway.

Qi practice will allow your mind to step away to allow you to experience your
Qi, your own consciousness.
Therefore, you might be able to open the gate of the mystery. Life is mystery. It’s up
to you. Do you want to experience the mystery of your life?
If you do want it, then Qigong is one of the paths that will lead you to open the gate of the mystery.
