The Year of the Horse
All of the resources in Hua Gong including the Qi Calligraphy images in these Newsletters function as a Transmission. Transmission means to empower, and to empower in this context means to pass on the energy
Ordinarily this kind of experience in the Qigong tradition would take many years of practice to achieve, but with Transmission we can share the same energy experience very quickly.
Zhixing often likens the passing on of this kind of information to a sort of software or programme being set up in our consciousness.
"If we truly receive the teachings and learn the method, we will receive the empowerment and the unique information which is linked to this tradition".
Below is a Qi Calligraphy image from Zhixing and some words of wisdom for the month of May.
As usual it is advisable to meditate on the image and respond naturally to any energetic effects.
"Dantian is the centre of the body and energy. It is mostly described in Qigong books as being the cavity two or three fingers below the navel and into the abdomen. It is easy to find the physical location of it, but if the energy is off centre there will be leakage and weakness.
To centre the Qi to the Dantian the body needs to open up, to let go of the "stuffy" energy (like smoke), and to re-collect the dispersed energy (like fire).
This image in the picture shows an openness at the centre, and in the whole structure of the character.
Relating this image to the Dantian of your own body can have the effect of centering your Qi back to the Dantian".
