The Chinese Theory of Qigong:
Let's start from the basics: everything is energy at various levels - matter to light, body-thoughts-spirit. One way to think about energy is as if it's water in its many forms: an ice cube, water, steam, or humidity.
Every form of life, or matter (energy) also has a type of energy field around it to some extent. Energy radiates out in all directions from each being, just getting fainter as it gets further away from it's central source.
As we practice the Qi Gong over a period of time we can begin to feel this field energy emanating from us. This feeling of qi is first between our hands, as we begin to do Qi Gong our awareness of the energy & our vitality increases.
Once our qi begins to build, along with our awareness, we not only become aware of our own qi but also that around us.
Stress depletes much qi. If our minds are busy and can't calm down, much of the qi is used up by the thoughts and nervous energy expenditure. The mind uses up much energy in it's functioning which is why basic Qigong meditation and learning to calm and focus the mind is very important. As our health improves and our mind learns to center we begin to build up our qi reservoir.
If we have internal disease or sickness, instead of building up a reservoir of qi as we practice the qi is directed to heal the illness or weakness.
