Qi Energy

I meet many people who outwardly seem to have a lot of energy and find it difficult to slow down. They will often hear advice from friends, family and colleagues such as ‘you need to take it easy’, ‘you can’t do everything’, ‘you shouldn’t work the hours you do’, ‘you can’t solve everyone’s problems’.

This type of person often experiences a kind of frenetic energy where sitting still is difficult, no matter how tired they are. Their energy keeps going with their minds constantly working and their bodies racing to keep up. After a while it all becomes very exhausting.

In this scenario, my advice is not to slow down but to recharge and calm the mind that in turn will recharge the body.

Read Emily’s story:

“I could never sit still and I often felt like a spinning top that is still spinning long after the initial energy burst. I was always looking for the next thing to do long before I’d finished what I was currently doing. I also found it difficult to say no as I felt I could keep going and going.

There comes a point though when that energy is going to run out. The mind can no longer work effectively and body can develop physical symptoms.

Since I began my first treatment with Master Oh, I have discovered peace and quiet. After my first treatment, I was suddenly able to sit down and enjoy a cup of tea without thinking or planning to do anything. I could finish the last sip and still sit a while longer. After a treatment, I could go to bed and fall asleep with a calm and empty mind and then wake up with a clear mind that is happy to start the day. This was a whole new experience for me. Normally, I fell asleep with exhaustion as I was trying to work through many things in my head and I woke up after many dreams, tired and a bit anxious about starting all the things I need to do.

Master Oh and Jung Shim practitioners use acupressure, so it softens all those knots that seem to build up so quickly around my shoulders, neck, lower and upper back. I can normally feel my breathing improve and my body relaxes naturally as they press and relieve the tension all over my body. I normally can’t relax just by lying down. The sounds seem to quieten my mind. I feel more energised, my body feels lighter, my mind feels more balanced and calm. Everyone around has noticed I am calmer and I have more time and patience for others – which I think makes me a better person. Thank you!”

Re-balance your energy levels

The reason that Emily felt such an improvement and essentially slowed down after energy treatments is that they rebalanced her energy levels. Frenetic energy is bursts of energy that draws on energy reserves often produced from a fright or flight reaction resulting in the production of adrenaline. This is not a sustainable energy supply.

The treatments had the benefit of unblocking energy channels that were affecting the natural flow of energy in the body. When energy is flowing effectively, the mind is calmer and more balanced. Once the mind is recharged, the body will follow.

eczema

Eczema can be a very distressing condition. With many people it can appear from out of the blue,at any age and with no obvious cause.  Quite often the immediate reaction is a very logical one, and that is to start eliminating things from one’s diet and lifestyle – after all, something you are consuming or doing must be causing this reaction.  However, it can sometimes be more deep rooted than that and related to energy levels, energy blockages and patterns inherited from our family.

Let’s read Alex’s story:

“Throughout my life I have had episodes of severe eczema, it would cover my face – cracking the skin above my lip, leaving my eyes puffy, red and sore and generally leaving me traumatised by how little I could recognise the person looking back at me in the mirror.

I was desperate to find a solution. Whilst growing up my parents were wonderful, finding dermatologists and doctors who could do tests and checks, but ultimately they all had the same prescription to apply steroid cream sparingly and cut out any fragrant soap or make-up.

The flare-ups would come and go, but I didn’t understand why and how that was the case.

At age 30, I experienced another eczema episode. Not wanting to go down the doctors route again, I turned to alternative medicine. I tried everything from acupuncture to kinesiology, yoga to a raw diet, reiki to meditation, I even removed gluten, dairy, alcohol and sugar from my diet, and I still didn’t see any change. When I met Master Oh in London, I was emotionally at rock bottom.

Every treatment I had with Master Oh, I felt relief, both physically and emotionally, my inflammation would go down and my whole system would feel at ease. Over time we talked more about what was causing my issues and Master Oh explained that he could detect energy blockages in my body that were inherited. What I began to understand was that the route cause of my skin condition was not only from my diet, emotions or products I put on my skin, but linked to deep inherited patterns.

By this point I was willing to try anything and as I discovered more about ancestor healing and spoke to other people who had found it beneficial, I decided to give it a go. During the ancestor healing programme my skin flared up and became very tender, so I could see something was visibly happening. However, by the end of the programme it cleared almost completely and I could once again recognise myself.”

The reason that Alex had a dramatic improvement in her eczema after finishing the Ancestor Healing programme is to do with energy blockages and the flow of energy in the body. When energy is blocked, depending on how the natural flow of energy to the body is affected, we develop physical symptoms.

Many of our deep energy blockages are coming from our family, from the inherited energy patterns of our previous generations. Whatever our predecessors experienced physically, mentally and emotionally gets passed down to us. Eczema is one of these issues and can be linked to particular energy blockages and our ancestor’s emotional and physical patterns.

If a scientist looked at our DNA, he would be able to trace our genetic make-up back about 4 generations. In the same way, inherited pattern can be picked up in our energy system. I can feel people’s ancestral patterns in the way energy is flowing through their body and especially in the most solid energy blockages.  Although these can open up during a Qi energy treatment, they often slowly return. This is because the ancestral pattern is still there. By doing ancestor healing, the energy patterns from our ancestors are changed and these blockages tend to open up permanently.

Ancestor healing clears the ancestral karma. In doing so it allows the energy blockages which are caused by our ancestor’s previous patterns to open up, promoting a healthier flow of energy in the body and a greater feeling of health and vitality.

Telephone treatments

I began treating people with Qi energy 30 years ago, soon after I graduated as a Qi Master in South Korea. Qi energy is extraordinary. Everything in the physical world has it’s own energy pattern, and is able to recreate itself. For example, two birds, of opposite sex can create a baby bird. Fungus can create fungus, trees can create trees. But what all these beings share between them is their essence. The energy of life is Qi, which is universal energy. It is both Yin and Yang and is present in everything. It can create life and support life.

When I treat people I treat their energy system by delivering Qi throughout their body. This energy goes where it is needed, naturally. Qi is exactly the same energy that flows through our energy system and so has the ability to open the energy channels, removing blockages and improving the energy-flow throughout our body. It also supports our energy levels.

Qi Treatments can be delivered both physically using accupressure and sound, as well as remotely, by connecting through Skype or telephone, using sound and intention or focus. When treating someone over Skype, I don’t rely on acupressure. Instead I allow the energy to go where it needs to go by tuning to that person’s energy system.

If people’s minds are open, the changes that one experiences through a Skype treatment can be just as dramatic as those experienced through a physical treatment. I have a client who I treated during childbirth over the phone. She had been receiving treatments up until that point and her health was improving, but during the birth she experienced severe difficulties. The telephone treatment resolved these instantly and she was able to give birth to a healthy baby boy.

Fiona’s story

“I had a very difficult pregnancy and just before I was due to give birth I developed something called thrombocytopenia. Basically the number of platelets in my blood dropped dramatically, which essentially meant my blood would not clot properly. As a result, I went from having a low risk birth to high risk. The prospect of this was very frightening and a long way from the birth I had dreamed of.

I eventually went into labour about a week later – it was very long with little progress. My blood was constantly being measured to see what was happening to the platelet count. Suddenly it started to drop rather alarmingly but the other complication was that after 29 hours of labour, the monitor was showing that my son was getting distressed.  He needed to come out he but couldn’t – he was stuck!  The only option was a C-section but before they could do this, the doctors had to ensure my platelet count had risen.  I contacted Master Oh by telephone who was treating abroad at the time. He gave me a treatment over the phone. It was incredible. It was so powerful and had such a big impact that when they took my blood, the results came back with my platelet count as normal.  (This is extremely unusual as the platelets only return to normal once the baby was born.) This meant  I was able to have a C-section and my son was safely delivered and we were both ok.

I feel so grateful to Master Oh, his telephone treatment really was life-saving on many levels and I am deeply grateful for the part he played in my son’s birth.”

Meditation

To answer this question we need to ask ourselves, what is the real purpose of our lives?

I believe the answer to this questions is simple. We are all made of body, mind and spirit. We all have a beautiful clear, bright beautiful part of us which is our spirit. The vibration of our spirit is unconditional love. It is what connects us to others and enables to feel gratitude, compassion, respect and love. The true purpose of our lives is to practice our spirit in everyday life.

When we connect to our spirit and our heart is open we feel there is no separation between ourselves and others and we know that us and all of humanity is one.

The vibration of our spirit, unlike the vibration of our human mind or ego, is very subtle. When we tune to it continuously through meditation, at the beginning we feel calm and peaceful. We feel like we have arrived home. The more we practice meditation, the deeper we can tune to our spirit. It is from here that our intuitive thoughts and conscience come from. We naturally know what is right and what is wrong.

With meditation we can strengthen the connection to our higher self, our innate compassionate, kind, generous mind. This connection gives us peace and calmness – at the same time it gives us the wisdom to make the right decisions and the responsibility to do more for others and the world.

Many people practice meditation to empty the mind of thoughts and find a moment of peace. This is definitely a good reason to practice meditation, for we all need to find stillness from our busy lives and not be ruled by our changing thoughts. However this is just the beginning of what can be achieved through meditation.

There are several ways in which we can meditate in order to come into contact with our true self and find peace and calmness, as well as start to explore the higher vibration of the spirit which is coming from deep within.


Meditation Techniques

Breathing:

Start by focusing on your abdomen. The energy point just below the navel is called the ‘dangeon’. This is the most central point of our energy system and where our Qi energy is stored. We can imagine it as our battery.

Start to breath in deeply through your nose, letting your abdomen rise as it fills with air. Breath out slowly through your nose, letting your abdomen fall.

Continue to breath deeply in and out focusing on the ‘dangeon’ and on your breath. You can count silently how long it takes you to breath in. Then count how long it takes you to breath out. If your breath in is shorter than your breath out then try to lengthen it until they are both even. Equally if your breath out is shorter, try and lengthen it to match the in breath. Once your breathing is even, continue to breath in and out for 10 minutes.

When thoughts come, don’t entertain them. Let them come and go without getting engaged. When you notice you are engaging with a thought or emotion, don’t worry about it, just gently return to the breath and focus on your dangeon.

After some time you should feel your mind quieten. You might also start to feel a deep sense of stillness and peace. Breathing this way, whilst focusing on the dangeon helps to correct the flow of Qi energy in the body, helping  it to circulate in the right direction. This stills the mind and allows us to make a connection to our original mind or spirit.

 

Self Reflection:

When we start to feel calm and peaceful, through breathing and focusing on the breath, then we are ready to use our mind in the right way. This is the best time to reflect on our day or on our recent actions and intentions.

This is a process that can be very natural. When a thought comes, let your mind explore the situation from all angles, taking into account each person’s side of the story. If you see you did something wrong, you were disrespectful or unkind to others, then make a plan to rectify your actions. The more we do this, the better relationships we can build and the more positive energy we spread around us.

Mindfulness

Modern day leadership is fast paced and stressful. Business leaders are inundated with high-pressured decisions requiring immediate action with little room for error. Study after study has shown the benefits of mindfulness.

First, let’s think of mindfulness as stopping your thoughts and being in the now with no distractions.

By practising mindfulness and helping people create a one-second mental space between an event and their response, it can be the difference between making a good decision and bad decision. One second can be the difference between a rushed decision that leads to failure and reaching a thoughtful conclusion that leads to increased performance.

Mindfulness can be the one-second lead over your mind and your emotions.  It’s the difference between displaying anger and applying due patience.

How does this work?

Mindfulness changes how we engage with ourselves, others, and our work. The practice changes how our brains work so through repeated mindfulness practice, brain activity is redirected from ancient, reactionary parts of the brain, including the limbic system, to the newest, rational part of the brain, the prefrontal cortex.

As a result, the part of our brain that controls fight-or-flight and knee-jerk reactions becomes less active whilst the part of the brain responsible for our thoughts, words, and actions becomes more active.

How to start practising mindfulness

I work with Jung Shim and we run classes to help with mindfulness and meditation. These are our tips to practicing mindfulness:

  1. Observe the present moment as it is. It isn’t always about quieting the mind, it is more about paying attention to the present moment.
  2. Let go of your judgments. When judgments arise, make a mental note and then let them pass.
  3. Keep returning to the present moment. Mindfulness requires us to keep returning to the here and now when our minds start to wonder.
  4. Be kind to your wandering mind. Don’t judge yourself for whatever thoughts crop up, just consistently recognise when your mind has wandered off, and gently bring it back.

Making the most of your leadership qualities

I would encourage you to try the following four tips to help make the most our of your leadership qualities:

  • Try to practice 10 minutes of mindfulness each day to train your brain to be less reactionary and more active.
  • Avoid reading email first thing in the morning. Our minds are generally most focused, creative, and expansive in the morning. This is the time to do focused, strategic work and have important conversations. If you read your email as you get up, your mind will get sidetracked and you’ll begin the slide toward reactive leadership. Making email your first task of the day wastes the opportunity to use your mind at its highest potential. Try waiting at least 30 minutes, or even an hour, after you get to work before checking your inbox.
  • Turn off all notifications. The notification alarms on your phone, tablet, and laptop are significant contributors to reactive leadership. They keep you mentally busy and put you under pressure, thereby triggering reactionary responses. They cause damage far more than they add value. Try this: For one week turn off all email notifications on all devices. Only check your email once every hour (or as often as responsibly needed for your job), but don’t compulsively check messages as they roll into your inbox.
  • Limit multitasking. It keeps your mind full, busy, and under pressure. It makes you reactive. Try to maintain focus on a single task, and then notice when you find your mind drifting off to another task — a sign that your brain wishes to multitask. When this happens, mentally shut down all the superfluous tasks entering your thoughts while maintaining focus on the task at hand.
