Inner Wisdom Inside of Us

Everyone possesses inner wisdom but to varying degrees. The first step in training and strengthening this special ability is for one to recognize and accept that it even exists. Through the practice of Qigong, this process begins to develop through the experience of the gentle, flowing energetic movements combined with specific training and direction to foster inner-knowingness.

This development happens incrementally over time, however, a student may notice significant changes immediately as well.

Peak Inner Wisdom Benefits Include:

  • Every day decisions are made easier through not only information (thoughts) derived on a physical level but also information (feelings) obtained on an energetic level.
  • The truth about something is understood and perceived immediately through instinctive feelings, rather than just conscious reasoning.
  • Increased ability to know and understand the inner nature of yourself.
  • Life mishaps are less likely to happen by taking the time to get in touch with yourself before taking the next step.
  • Relationship choices improve
  • Taking heed of inner reminders save you time, aggravation, and money
  • Ability to notice subtle energy within oneself and others.

How Does Qigong Increase Inner Wisdom:

  1. Qigong is a form of energy medicine movement that activates the body both physically and energetically. During Qigong training, a practitioner cultivates and plays with Qi (vital energy) which increases energetic awareness. This results in an increased sensitivity to electrical, magnetic and other energies not only emanating from themselves but also others. When this occurs, a person can begin to access information within themselves in an enhanced manner thereby increasing inner wisdom.
  2. The aspect of our physical body most directly linked to our energetic system is the endocrine system, which is made up of hormones. According to Chinese medicine, the closest equivalent to the Western concept of hormones is the existence of prenatal essence which is converted into Qi during Qigong practice in order to stimulate the proper function of the physical body.
  3. Specific Qigong exercises focus on balancing and energizing the endocrine glands for improved body function. The endocrine gland most closely aligned to development of inner wisdom is the pineal gland, sometimes referred to as “the third eye” or the 6th Chakra – and linked to the metaphysical because it is believed to link the physical body with the energetic world. Physically, this gland secretes melatonin which regulates daily bio-rhythms, neutralizes the damaging impact of free radicals; and boosts immunity. Qigong activation of the pineal gland also controls acceleration of sexual growth and retards the aging process.

Inner Wisdom On a Non-Verbal Level

Through Qigong practice, one also develops a greater awareness on a non-verbal level. For example, in relationships with other specific body language and facial expressions become indicative of certain non-verbal messages, whereby one can step back and give another person more space. These non-verbal cues develop a strong sense of inner-knowingness and one begins to really trust themselves and how they feel.

This inner wisdom actually becomes definitive information that becomes a reliable point of reference. It becomes a working knowledge that one begins to trust as absolute truth – using it to make conscious, clear decisions in both personal and work relationships.

When a student first begins the practice of Qigong there is great emphasis on how to do the movements physically. As practice continues, there is more and more emphasis on the energetic components of the movements which are when inner wisdom begins to be experienced and trained as well.

A Clearer Awareness

As Qigong practice develops to an even more advanced level, this inner wisdom may also take the form of even clearer awareness. A student may begin experiencing pre-cognition which is acquiring knowledge about future events through an emotional, feeling response or through seeing an image of an event.

Sometimes this takes form within a dream which is forgotten and then is pieced together when it actually happens – whereby the person experiences it as a déjà vu. This experience leads to a deeper meaning within what are otherwise common, daily experiences as well as creating more clarity and greater consciousness. This not only brings one more into the present moment but also sharpens the ability to make decisions with greater astuteness and solid inner knowing.

Thus, it is duly noted that Qigong is not just a physical exercise, but it is a cultivation of vital energy – a rebalancing of the bodies Qi and Blood, an awakening of inner wisdom and ability to be your own guide, not only through physical cues, but also energetic. It is the practice of these ancient Chinese exercises that develops and hones this ability to help you navigate your life.

Shoshanna Katzman, M.S., L.Ac., Dipl. Ac & CHI am pleased to have the opportunity to provide you with an array of articles written from the perspective of a Chinese medicine practitioner with the specialties of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and the exercise systems of tai chi and qigong. My training began 45 years ago when I became a serious student of tai chi and kung fu in the Panhandle of San Francisco. Since that time I have availed myself of intensive study in the fields of Chinese medicine as well as energy medicine. I also have a master’s degree in sports medicine, which lends a more scientific basis for my work. My vision is to reach and help as many people revitalize and restore balanced flow of qi throughout their body, mind and spirit. This is achieved through integrating the healing modalities of Chinese medicine into their life.https://healing4u.com https://qigongforlonglife.com http://qigong4.us
