Ping Shuai Gong - Swing Hands Workout




Everyone who knows me will attest that I've practiced martial arts when bell bottom pants roamed the earth, which means a long time.  I work out daily various forms of martial arts consisting of karate, Tai Chi and Qigong, movements, traditional as taught many years in the past, some complicated to the point if you're not concentrating, you make a mistake and then feel cheated for doing a poor workout.

Well, several days ago, I came upon this unique form of Qigong that I'm going to say, after 45 plus years of martial arts training, is simple and the real McCoy.  It's boring as all get down, but no worse that jogging.  I supplement the boredom with music by Tower of Power or War or Eagles or Three Dog Night...

I highly recommend it and challenge you (after you talk to your doctor, of course) to do it.  The video above is pretty cool with subtitles.  Like watching a kung fu video.

The goal is to do three sets of ten minutes.  The reason.  See below.

Every 10 minutes is a phase. 

In the 1st 10 minutes, it will activate your basic circulation. 

In the 2nd 10 minutes, it will start the work inside your internal organs & will also bear some effects on your brain. 

In the 3rd 10 minutes, or about ½ hour, you will discover that some of the hidden sickness inside your body will be uncovered. 

This kind of circulation will bring balance and harmony inside your body. And the hidden old sickness will naturally be cured & you will feel very comfortable.

The Incredible Story of Guolin: Cancer Survivor

This is the  story of Guolin. I'm sure many of you have no idea who she is.  But for those of you who have or have had cancer, this is a story, I’m sure, you'll like.

Ms. Guo Lin taught traditional Chinese painting and, at 43, was diagnosed with uterine cancer.  She had her uterus removed in 1949 while in Shanghai, China. Unfortunately, it spread to her bladder and, in 1960, had half of it removed.  After four additional operations, the doctors gave up and, in 1964, told her she had months to live.

Not one to give up hope, she searched for options. Then by chance, she found, while cleaning her home, ancient Qigong texts left to her by her late grandfather (a Taoist priest).  Without a sifu or instructor, she self-taught herself these forms.  Incredible as this sounds, in after six months, Guolin’s cancer went into remission.

Steps On How to Be Mindful

Courtesy of ricecatalyst.org
Being mindful is a personal attempt to know thyself. 

Deep. Philosophical. Easy. 

Hard to do. 

You can read books, articles, listen to audios, watch videos and be taught or mentored. It can be complicated. Or you can make it as simple and natural as breathing in and out.

Each morning, I start my mindful day with Tai Chi and Qigong. It would be nice for you to join me. Unfortunately, you will have to walk that path by yourself, a journey if trekked properly will lead you to self actualization and inner peace.

This is the time of year when we celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Eve.  

Unfortunately, happy times comes with the burden of additional tasks and responsibilities like carrying  heavy rocks on our backs with every step we take.
