You're a big body of LOVE! That's what you are...
Elemental Harmony, PLLC
Predictable, right? Sending out a newsletter in February about love? Yeah, I thought about doing something different. But the truth is sometimes I need a break from thinking outside of the box. ;)

That being said, this is not a typical February newsletter about love. It's not about how to strengthen your love relationships or spice things up in the bedroom. No. This is about Sheng Zhen (pronounced "shung jen"). Sheng means sacred. Zhen means truth. And what's the most sacred, highest truth? Unconditional Love. The pure energy of Love. Not love with a little "l," but Love with a big "L." It has nothing to do with anything personal. It simply is. And it is always there all around you and inside of you in an infinite supply.

Sheng Zhen is not just about doing some movements or meditating; it's a philosophy and can be a way of life as well. Sheng Zhen teaches that Love and qi (vital life force energy, pronounced "chee") are always together and are the original and basic energies of the Universe. Master Li Junfeng says that where there is Love there is qi, and where there is qi, there is life. Similar to one of my favorite Gandhi quotes:

Through the movements and contemplations of Sheng Zhen Gong, we get in touch with this energy of Unconditional Love. We embody Love.

And this is why Sheng Zhen is so powerful, so healing, and can deeply heal and touch people's lives.

Now, I invite you to shut your eyes, take a deep breath, relax and open your body and mind. Recall your origin; you come from Love. You already *are* the embodiment of Love. This is how we begin the practice of Sheng Zhen, not just in the classroom, but out in the world.

Imagine a world where you walk around feeling, knowing, that you are a big body of Love. Full of qi and full of Love. And knowing, seeing, that everyone else is too. What does that feel like? What does that look like? All it takes is the thought "I am a big body of Love," and a willingness, a curiosity even, to see what happens, to see what one simple, beautiful thought can do. Wanna try it?

Just think it. It really can be that easy.

And if you want more, you can also check out videos on YouTube (like Awakening the Soul, or Sheng Zhen Healing Gong, which are ideal for beginners), contact me or other teachers for lessons, or travel to a workshop or training with Master Li. And there's still the option of coming with me to Mexico for a week in April if you sign up by February 15.

Whether or not practicing Sheng Zhen or simply playing around with the "I am a big body of Love" mantra resonates with you, I highly encourage you to think about the bigger picture, the deeper meaning of Love, not just during this month when we're seeing big red hearts and the word "love" everywhere, but every month, every day. Every moment. Love is key.

Much Love,
