Many believe that, through meditation, we can change our internal chi which will promote healing and boost our energy levels so that we can live longer and healthier lives. In Chinese medicine it is believed that Chi mirrors the flow of our blood and nourishes every cell in our body. Therefore, if our Chi is strong our bodies will be strong.
If we want to change our internal Chi there are several things that we can do:
Breathing: this may sound obvious but deep breathing exercises are wonderfully beneficial for our minds, bodies and spirits and are an essential part of meditation.
Exercise: specifically Tai Chi which is designed to help you balance your Chi. It is a series of slow and gentle movements which will teach you to regulate your breath and focus on your inner self. Tai Chi is suitable for just about anyone.
