Qigong Exercises for Beginners

Hello loyal readers! as you guys know I have started learning qigong recently and it helps me a lot with balancing my energy and grounding myself together with meditation and the rest of the spiritual practices I do to help me with my current life changes. I really recommend these methods for you all out there to help you cope with life stress and responsibilities. Stop your energy burnout and stay in control using Qigong. Enjoy!

Flowing Qi

Start by sitting forward on the edge of the chair, with feet flat on the floor in front of you. With your feet rooted to the ground, imagine that your body is afloat. Let your head float above your relaxed neck like a float on the surface of the water. To let your spine feel free, imagine a gentle sensation of someone lifting you from above as if there were a string attached to the crown of your head. Inhale, and let the energy within you allow your arms to rise to shoulder height. On the exhale, return your arms to your sides. Repeat this several times, becoming increasingly aware of the energy within that propels the movement of your arms.

Ball Rolling

While sitting, use the rolling the ball movement to feel the qi between your hands. Imagine that you are holding a ball between your palms, and begin moving it around and rolling it with your hands. Your hands should not move through the imagined ball, just as they would not go through the center of a real ball. This is a foundational qigong exercise that is included in many advanced types of qigong exercises.

Infinity

The infinity or double helix exercise can be performed while standing or sitting. In either position, use your arms and hands to form the pattern of figure eight resting on its side, similar to the infinity symbol. To remain conscious of your qi, make sure that the palms of your hands are facing each other when passing. The points of energy located in the center of your palms will be able to connect this way.
