Mother Earth Qi Healing
Yesterday morning, I enjoyed breakfast with my friend Jerry, who is a QiGong Master. He told me about an exercise he learned from our teacher, Spring Forest QiGong Master Chunyi Lin. I tried it in meditation group tonight – and it went so well, I thought I’d share it with you.
The exercise draws on the loving/healing energy of the earth, Mother Earth Qi, and involves moving light of various colors up through the main, vertical energy channel in the body – from the perineum at the base of the torso to the crown at the top of the head. This can be done lying down, sitting or standing.
First thing in the morning, before getting out of bed, Jerry practices Mother Earth Qi healing. He touches the perineum with the fingertips of his left hand and the crown with his right-hand fingertips. According to Jerry, the physical touch helps, but is not necessary. The energy can move just fine with only visualization/imagination.
The twilight time just after awakening can be an especially powerful time for healing/transformation. Other times can also work well.
Here is the sequence Jerry suggests. Note that it includes seven healing colors and (for the last five colors) the organ system and healing emotion that correspond to the color.
Gold – a powerful, all-body healing color
Purple – a color for spiritual transformation/healing
Green – heals the liver system – happiness energy
Red – heals the heart system – joy energy
Yellow – heals the stomach – peace energy
White – heals the lungs – contentment energy
Blue - heals the kidneys – gratitude energy
The practice can be done quickly – opening the perineum (with touch or visualization to signal the intention to open) and imagining each color moving up the main channel between the perineum and crown – not focusing so much on the specific organ systems or emotions.
The meditation/exercise I guided tonight took a good 45 minutes. We spent time upfront connecting with Mother Earth. We lingered with the movement of each color. We bathed each organ system in its corresponding light and healing emotion. We moseyed. With plenty of quiet time, the process deepened naturally – and powerfully.
Some final thoughts:
1. I found it helpful – but not necessary – to coordinate the upward movement of energy with my in-breath.
2. If you decide to try this practice, please don’t work too hard. Don’t aim for perfection.
3. Feel free to adapt this exercise in any way that suits you. For example, you can spend more time, or even most of your time, in a particular area where healing light is most needed.
Mother Earth Qi is an amazing resource. Enjoy!
