What Are You Choosing to See…. Say…. Think?

My clients are people who I love like family. My retreat attendees are new and old friends who I am getting to know better and building community. 

I love spending time with bright-light women. I see the light that sometimes they do not see. You are me and I am You. If you succeed, we all succeed. 

Recently I met with a client I had not seen in a long time. It reminded me how blessed I am, to do what I do. Even though many do not know or understand exactly what I do, I love my work and feel so honored to know what I know. 

Only when the mind, emotion, and spirit are free from distractions can a person control his or her negative emotions. Therefore, “Regulating the Mind” is considered the primary Medical Qigong technique used in order to teach patients how to relieve themselves from the dark abyss of their negative emotions. 

This is to say that the patient must learn to let optimism prevail over pessimism. The practice of Medical Qigong not only cultivates vital energy and builds up the patient’s health, but also promotes the development of optimism as well as a quiescent mind. 

Tranquility and optimism promote better circulation of both Blood and Qi, which strengthens the immune system, so that inhibited cancer cells will gradually perish. While visiting Maui, Hawaii, I came in contact with four people who each explained that they had been diagnosed with terminal cancer and had each been given two weeks to live

Each person had their own unique story as to how they had come to the Hawaiian Islands to die. What struck me as fascinating was the fact that each one of these individuals had either left successful but extremely stressful businesses, and/or long-term abusive relationships made amends the best they could with relationships from their past (those who had anger against them or those who they had hurt), and had come to paradise to live their last weeks in peace.

That was several years ago! It seems that upon resolving all personal conflicts and leaving their stressful environment, their cancers went into remission. Several were now working as busboys or waitresses, enjoying a less stressful life, focused on simplicity and spiritual growth

This is part of how Positive Self-Talk works- allowing your mind to have freedom from the negative thoughts and words that it is used to.
