The Force Of Life

The Chi-Energy

Do you know what is Chi/Qi energy?. The ancient Chinese described Chi-energy as the life force. It is the internal power within our bodies. 

Though chi is not scientifically proven its a widely accepted phenomenon. Chi is the vital energy that circulates through the body at all times. Not only humans but also every other life forms have the Chi energy. In living beings, energy flows not only from physical nourishment but through the body in the energy centers called Chakras.

Can you see Chi

Like your aura, you can't directly see our Chi-energy. If you want to see the Chi-energy directly you should sit in a room with complete darkness. In that dark, you may see fuzzies all over the place.

How do we awaken Chi/Qi energy

  • Breathing is the main approach                                                                                                             To develop your Chi/Qi-energy it is essential to do the process of cycling a lot of air through your body. Chi is the energy of life itself, a balance of yin and yang, positive and negative energy. keep doing the breathing exercise until it becomes natural. To develop Chi/Qi-energy spend 10 to 15 minutes focusing on nothing but your breathing.                                         Sit in your comfortable state ie, cross-legged on the floor or sit in a matt. Then breathe in deeply from your diaphragm you should feel the breath expand your stomach. After taking a deep breath hold it for 5 seconds, then exhale completely.   
  • Yoga and meditation can also help to boost your Chi/Qi-energy as a life force.

Is prana the same as Chi.  

yes. Prana is physical, mental, and spiritual energy. Prana is power, the more you develop your breathing exercise the more power you will experience thus improving your Chi.
