Qigong Breathing Skills and Steps
Unlike some Martial Art forms that can be practiced quickly, Qigong needs a lot of preparation. It is such preparation that require a lot of skills either learned from a book or taught by a master. If you intend to practice on your own, find resources with reliable information on different breathing techniques before starting:
- Balance your breathing
Try inhaling slowly but deeply for a set period of time. While exhaling, take a little longer than inhaling to get rid of carbon dioxide traces from your system. Breath from your belly and not your chest for efficiency. By doing this, you will feel your Qi flowing in your body precisely along your microscopic orbit.
- Warm up
Sway gently with your arms stretched from your shoulders. Make gentle swings to initiate polarity in your body. Polarity is essential in creating Qi flows that help you understand Yi/ Yang, substantial/ non-substantial, open/ close, solid/ empty and rise/ fall among other halving relationships.
- Body bouncing
Have you feet parallel with knees bent to about shoulder width then bounce softly while your hands are hanging freely at your side. A secret few Tai Chi masters rarely tell is that this physical moves coordinate with internal bounces in your mind to control Qi flow.
Actively hold your eyes in a half-closed position then concentrate on your breathing like in a meditation mood. Have your hand chakras contact but with fingers in upward position. With your tongue tip touching the upper part of your jaw behind your teeth, you focus your qi energy into flowing via your 12 primary and 8 extra channels till your Qi is balanced and strong.
- Make a point
Let your index finger point straight to your other hand’s palm. Do this till you get a feeling of energy flowing from the finger to the palm.
