The smooth flow of energy is important for our health and happiness.
This smooth flow we can cultivate doing Golden Wings Chi Gong, using an external source – moving our arms and legs in a specific way. This then will activate internal chi to move and rise, bringing up various feelings and emotions we have blocked and stored in our physical body in the organs, muscles, tissues, blood and lymph.
Sometimes new students find it’s too much, they find Golden Wings Chi Gong to strong and quit because it makes them feel years of suppressed emotions or old pain come to the surface. Though, this is a soft and gentle way, to release what in many cases, have been stored in the body for years, maybe a whole lifetime disturbing your inner balance.
Emotions must go somewhere, they will always stay in the body, in the organs and tissue, they leave a mark in our energy field. So where ever we go, we bring everything with us.
Generally, with a balanced flow of Chi, it creates a perfect environment for a pain free life both physically and emotionally. Chi is what acupuncturists move with needles, cupping or massage. With Chi Gong we use gentle movement and in Golden Wings Chi Gong the exercises specifically opens the Heart, the center for feeling.
Golden Wings Chi Gong makes you feel energized and leave you with a happy smile and it assists you in your personal growth.
You are always welcome to write to me and to try a free 1 week membership for my live online classes in Golden Wings Chi Gong or the other membership group Yoga & Chi Gong. In both classes you have access to recordings and weekly updates, question and answer.
Have a beautiful day, have a great Life!

Chi is life!
The world of Chi is the world of the invisible, yet everyone feels it;
it is everywhere and in everything;
it is in the air, the stars, the water, your smile.
Chi is often translated with life, energy or light.
Spiritually chi is equivalent with love. Where there is Love there is abundant pure Chi. Love is what we all are looking for in one or the other way, either through work, friends, relationships. We awake and nurtue Love through being creative and by listening and acting on our inspirations. When Chi flows freely through out our physical body and the energy body we feel inspired and can be creative, we are filled with Love.
Each person has a unique blueprint and can from his inspirational thoughts, create something unique. It is only our human thoughts that restrict our life. This can be seen in the way we live; through our choice of work, in our relationships, the way we act out our life in society, and the way we choose to eat and care for nature and ourself. Only you know how to live your life to your full potential. If Chi is not abundant and pure we will have difficulties to know who we are.
When the flow of chi is restricted we may get physical symptoms such as headache, pain in the joints and muscles, high blood pressure and a constant flow of repetitive thoughts. Restricted flow of chi can also manifest as symptoms of stress: loss of memory, forgetful, insomnia, low energy and emotional distress. Depleted of Chi, a person can look tired and grey; have sunken eyes, a colourless complexion, and feel cold or uncomfortable hot.
When Chi is flowing we feel content, complete, can act adequate on happenings in our life, feel joy and have a comfortable body temperature.
Chi gives energy to the voice, brings life to the laughter and makes you want to do something with your life. Chi gives you the sparkle to move forward, to try life out – to learn and experience. Sufficient Chi makes you able to choose between right and wrong – to listen to your inner voice. Your inner voice is you higher self talking to you. To much clutter and constant thinking makes it difficult to listen, if not impossible.
There are ways you can build your Chi, nurture your Health and Love for yourself and the world, is something holding you back, have you asked what that is?
Have a beautiful day, nurture your inner chi, smile to Life.

Golden Wings Chi Gong – the deep healer
When did it all begin? Some say 2000 Years BC others 5000 years BC.
What we do know as a fact is it is thousands of years old.
Chi Gong is known to be the beginning of all the other arts we know, such as Tai Chi and Kung Fu. Having a close relation to Nature and learning the grace of the movements in her, it was natural for those living long ago to seek healing from Nature when imbalances occurred. Maybe they already practiced certain moves long before this, as a thank you for the generosity from the Earth. Later it was used as a healing tool, for those having build a resistance, coming from what we know as greed and desire. These emotions will then have caused physical ailments and the ring of physical and emotional pain started.
You will find various school teaching different styles of Chi Gong. I use the term Chi, others prefer Qi or Ki, it is the same thing, maybe different energy, no right or wrong.
Throughout history Chi Gong has changed, adapting to the life at that time. Originally it was meant to improve your state of health, later is was used as a type of warm up and balance the organs, then you could continue with the martial arts of Tai Chi and Kung Fu. Some might not agree, this is just the human seeking who is right. What we can do is listen to what we feel gives us a sense of internal balance and quietness.
The goal of Chi Gong
Despite the diversity with the different schools, they have a common goal:
- Maintaining and improving health of body and mind – your spiritual inheritance
- Allow and feel the flow of energy throughout the whole body and beyond
- Emptying and filling the body with Chi
- Connect oneself with Natures energy
- To HEAL
Chi Gong consists of:
- Breathing practice
- Meditative postures
- Dynamic flowing movements
- Self – massage
- Healing with Chi
The effect of Chi Gong
You will find most exercises have beautiful and poetic names referring to Nature. These names help’s you to soften an often stress filled body and to visualize and develop the inner feeling of energy that becomes alive during your practice. All this is implemented through breathing and the gentle movements, where the gentle repetition along with the flow in the energy channels through out your body, makes your mind relax.
- Each exercise has a specific effect
- each exercise act on a specific energy channel and organ
- each exercise has a balancing effect on an emotion
- each exercise will always strengthen your Heart one way or the other
- each exercise will eventually bring vitality to each of your cells
- each exercise moves energy in a specific way in the physical effecting physical symptoms and emotions
each exercise moves energy in the spiritual realms.
Generally what we know about the flow of energy with acupuncture, also happens in Chi Gong, only activated differently. I write it this way as most have heard and have a feeling for acupuncture.
Chi and Chi Gong
Chi is another word for energy. Again some spell it Ki, Qi maybe you also hear the word Prana all depending on which school you learn from or which country.
Chi is the force of Life, without there is no Life. Every living thing has Chi.
Chi is what moves yin and yang
Chi makes your legs and arms move
Chi digest your food
Chi makes you think and act
Chi is in your smile, the depth of your glow in your eyes, skin or talk depends on the amount of Chi you carry.
Your cells vibrate, your skin and organs vibrate, your whole life is depending on this energy, which can be either felt or measured by certain instruments. Some people has the ability to see Chi.
To be able to see and feel chi you need to have developed a certain understanding of yourself. The more acceptance, the more you can let go, the easier it is for energy to flow and experience life without judgement, fear and worry, selfishness or anger. To let go and trust allows your energy to flow abundantly without restrictions, this is part of the deep spiritual effect you might experience practicing Chi Gong. This means also no beliefs of good and bad, small or big, worthy or not worthy ……
All the mentioned issues stop Chi flowing.
With each stop, you feel a knot tighten, you might swallow, you definitely feel at brief stop within you. That stop creates an imbalance, like a cover up of a wound that is not healed from the inside. During your Chi Gong practice, you might feel it is difficult to breathe or you feel a tightening of a muscle, a sharp pain. This happens when Chi is reaching the affected area.
With each movement, Chi will be nurtured that little further until it eventually break the resistance and you feel free, if only for at short period. That sense of freedom, you never forget, and you will naturally seek that feeling again.
This is briefly what happens when you practice Chi Gong. I hope this all makes sense to you, it not sit quiet with it, do the practice over and over again, you will feel something. Every little something is healing a speck of your past, and that will never come again. If it does it is because something similar was implanted and you believed it to be true.
Chi Gong for your health and well-being
You can do Chi gong for many reasons, one thing is you don’t need to be ill or in other ways out of balance.
Use chi gong to enjoy life further, if you feel fit and healthy.
Today we are regular met with toxicity, like me now, despite this for me is as life giving as anything else to write about the beauty of energy and Chi Gong; I am sat behind a computer which emits a none promoting energy, so I do breathing exercises and Chi Gong to return to balance, just a few of the healing tools I have.
You might drive a car, live in a city, eat the occasional none organic food, argue, have a loss of a loved one, use mobile phone, watch TV, live inside with less natural energy around, worry, have fear, frustration, still you feel well. Underneath, the toxins eat of your energy, not enough to become ill, imagine if you could do something that prevented the constant loss of energy and rebuild this loss of life giving energy.
Well it’s worth a try to join Golden Wings Chi Gong class, experience it yourself, no one can take what you feel away from you. It will work it has always worked as a deep healer and it will for you too.
You will find live online classes under Chi Gong, or if you have enough interest, I am happy to set up a workshop in your area.
Have a beautiful day, have a great Life.
