Happy Chinese New Year of the Horse!

Greetings Subscriber 

The second new Moon after the Winter Solstice approaches and we welcome in the Chinese New year of the Horse on Friday the 31st of January.
 In addition to this,  it also begins on a Fire Tiger month, making the energy very strong and lively.  
 This portends a year of action, adventure, strong energy and unexpected romance!  
So it seems this year has leaped in with a flourish, and is markedly different from the slower energy of the year of the Snake.

As Our Qi Gong practice continues to attune us to the cosmic Qi for health, rejuvenation and spiritual connection to our chosen path, we will   remember that we have an extra uplift  in this year of the Horse. 

Below is a Qi Calligraphy and explanation from Zhixing to help us to attune to the Hua Gong energy this month.  There is a Qi transmission which can be activated if we gaze upon the image  and reflect on the words.  We  then need to respond in our own way.


Xi: Breath
Life starts and finishes with Breath.  Breath is Life.  The in and out of breath is like life and death.  
Deep and profound breath  goes with health, and shallow and short breath is a sign of poor health.  In Chinese Xi also means rest.  When our mind and body is rested-settled, still and open , we breathe in a good way.  
As a Chinese character, Xi has a "heart" in it (the lower part).  Potent Breath goes with the pulse of the heart.  The pulse like breathing links us to the hear of the universe-the universal consciousness.
 When we harmonize with the cosmic pulse , cosmic breath or cosmic Qi, we return to our own child like state of being.

I hope this image Xi will assist us in getting into a peaceful and vibrant state of mind and body, at the beginning of the year of the Horse.
