The Chi


Chi is the most fundamental element to human vitality. It is what keeps us alive, activated by our heart and stimulated by our breath. When we bring more focus to the body, the quality of our Chi is much more potent, leading to longer term health & wellbeing.

Chi or Qi is believed to be a vital force forming part of any living entity. Chi translates as "air" and figuratively as "material energy", "life force", or "energy flow". Chi is the central underlying principle in Chinese traditional medicine and in Chinese martial arts, such as Qigong.

Chi is channeled via the bodies energy passage ways, The Meridians. Overtime these passageways get blocked, which leads us to poor health and poor quality of life. Practices such as acupuncture are a means fo unblocking the Meridians to unleash pocked of energy tension and release the radiance.

Chi has a variety of different translations and terms depending on the context: in Indian philosophy it is referred to as Shakti, Kundalini or Prana. In western philosophy we will refer to it as energy or consciousness. Personally I use the term radiance, as when you experience more free flowing chi throughout your body you begin to radiate from the inside out. Your eyes begin to sparkle and your hair begins to shine. As soon as the energy you omit out begins to change, the energy you get back from others and the world also begins to transform.
