We Are Spiritual Beings Having Human Experiences

Love love what I  have learned from this site:

Aspiring Energy Healer,
It’s no secret how stressful modern life can be. And I know how helpless it can make you feel.
Today’s work culture rewards workers with more stress and little sleep. And many of us turn to fast food, coffee, and alcohol to cope. When the exhaustion and tension get to be too much, we turn to drugs as the answer to our illness And we continue an endless cycle that damages our body’s ability to heal and leaves us vulnerable.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. You can walk a different path, a path of energy and vitality, of inner balance and harmony.
Here’s one of the secrets that the modern world doesn’t teach or reveal: You have amazing healing powers.
When your life force energy circulates freely, it heals, strengthens, and nourishes your cells. Your immune system becomes strong, invading germs have less opportunity to fester and germinate – preventing you from getting sick.
As a Chinese medical doctor, I’ve seen how unblocking one’s life force energy can take wellbeing and happiness to the next level. Keep reading, and I’ll be your guide on this journey into deep vitality and greater energy.

None Of Them Took My Strange Exercise Seriously But When They Saw How Fast I Healed…

My discovery of it is completely accidental… literally.

'A serious lower back injury led me on a journey that transformed everything I knew about my mind, body, and spirit..''A serious lower back injury led me on a journey that transformed everything I knew about my mind, body, and spirit..'

Everyone was astonished at my rapid recovery.

Back when I was playing soccer for the University of California, Berkeley, I got into an accident that almost ended my Varsity Soccer career. Some guy took my legs out when I was about to head the ball and I crashed on my tailbone.
The pain was excruciating. I suffered injuries to my lower back and I could barely walk for a week. I couldn’t sit, stand, or even lie down.
The team doctor and physical therapists tried everything, but finally they said I would be out for the season. Though every effort to heal my injuries so far had failed, I refused to give up hope. I wasn’t about to accept defeat.
Somehow, an old martial arts teacher came to mind. I remembered once watching him break through 15 thick bricks, one on top of each other in one clean strike without injuring himself – not even cracking a fingernail. I wondered if this same “magic” could be used to heal people. At this point, I was desperate enough to try anything.
Long story short, he examined my back and showed me some interesting exercises and stretches. At first, I was skeptical. The exercises just seemed too simple to work, but he promised that this “magical” practice would accelerate my recovery.
Within days, I felt 75% better. I could walk, jump, and run comfortably. After the second visit, I was back in the field – using my own natural healing powers. No medication, no surgery, and no risky procedures.
Everyone was astonished at my rapid recovery. It was the most bizarre and wonderful experience I’d ever had and I wondered why more people didn’t know about this amazing practice.

Who Am I And Why You Can Trust Me To Help You Discover Better Health,All-Day Energy, And Relaxed Concentration?

My name is Lee Holden, and over the years I have had the privilege of sharing these ancient exercises for health and healing with people from around the world. At first, I only set out to share these exercises with a few students, family, and friends. No one was more surprised than I was when American Public Television asked me to create a pledge show to air nationwide.
While it felt great to reach so many people, I had no idea how far or how wide my teachings were going to go. I still remember the first phone call I got when the program first aired. When I answered the phone, the man on the other end said with a heavy Texan accent, “Hey, honey, it’s the guy on TV!” Soon I was being asked to appear on TV shows. I got interview requests from major newspapers and magazines. I was stunned!
But what really thrilled me was the feedback I was getting from people who were now applying these ancient techniques to their daily lives. Like me, they were experiencing amazing healing.
Since 1989, I’ve helped millions of people across the world get better faster and discover the energy and health they need to do the things that they love. My clients are corporate executives, Hollywood stars, pro-athletes, and doctors. Over the years fans of my work have included…
  • Daniel Bloomburg, M.D.
  • Hayley Atwell, English actress, famous for her
    role in “Captain America: The First Avenger”.
  • Dr. Deek Smith
  • Ed Burke, 4 Time Olympian, Owner Los Gatos
    Athletic Club
  • Dr. Darrell Bruga
  • Dr. Rachel Abrams, M.D., Author
  • And many more…
I’ve worked with the world’s most experienced healers and health experts — like Deepak Chopra and Taoist Master Mantak Chia. And I consult with several Hollywood film companies and top Silicon Valley corporations like Apple, 3Com, and Cisco.
The reason why I’m telling you all this is because you are about to share the same profound experience I’ve taught to my many clients over the years…

How I Discovered An Ancient Technique That Helps Your Body Heal Faster, Eliminates Fatigue And Feeds Your Energy For An Entire Lifetime In Only Minutes A Day

For over 40 centuries, men and woman from the Far East practiced a self-healing method that was effortless, practical, and required very little time.
In fact, try this basic exercise below to see how incredibly easy it is. It takes less than five minutes to do.
Try this:
Rub your palms vigorously until your hands feel warm (like you are creating a fire)
Bring your hands down to your side and shake your lowers arms and wrists like an athlete would before an event. Shake for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Completely relax with your hands by your side and feel the energy circulating down your arms and into your fingertips
'Feeling your Qi is easy – start by simply rubbing your palms together vigorously.''Feeling your Qi is easy – start by simply rubbing your palms together vigorously.'
Simple, easy, and effective. Could you feel your Qi?
Without even breaking a sweat or changing into your workout clothes, you’ve already started to heal your body. When you do this exercise and others like it, this is what happens deep inside you:
Your life force energy circulates through your body, activating each cell. As you feel your life force energy, your mind connects to the present moment and you slip into total relaxation and calmness.
While all this happens you are actually meditating – it’s called Moving Meditation – with your mind and body. I’ll explain why this is important shortly…
As you become aware of your life force energy, it moves through your cells, travels through your nervous system and nourishes everything inside you. You will even feel the tingling and radiant sensations in your fingertips.

The Chinese Ancestors Called This Mysterious Life Force Energy… “Qi”

Qi is invisible. You cannot see it, but you feel its existence.

As It travels through your meridians—energy highways within your body. It beats with your heart, nourishes your muscles, and even gives rise to your consciousness.
The rest of the exercises are just as easy. The only “difficult” thing you’ll do is to relax and move slowly. No balancing on your head or standing on one foot.
Let your body move gracefully and fluidly – there’s no pressure on the joints – and your Qi flows and tones your vital organs. That’s how it revitalizes your body and builds your energy reserves.

Best of all, you don’t need any special equipment or environment to practice.

Best of all, you don’t need any special equipment or place to practice. No Yoga mats, no exercise machines, no special safety equipment, and no fancy gym clothes necessary. You can do the slow exercise movements in any comfortable clothes and you don’t even have to sweat.
This is Qi Gong – “Qi” meaning energy and “Gong” meaning cultivation.
It’s easily the most cost-effective yet potent self-healing practice that exists today. Yet, so little is known about this breakthrough practice in the West. In order to appreciate the full potential of Qi Gong, I set out to study everything there is to know about this practice.
What I discovered changed everything I believed about alternative health and modern medicine…

The Earliest Medical Breakthrough That Influenced Healing Across Civilizations

You might be hearing the word Qi Gong for the first time, but its history stretches back 4,000 years to the earliest medical doctrine that formed the bedrock of eastern medicine. Used to promote longevity and healing, it has influenced therapeutic practices including…

Qi Gong is acupuncture without needles! It activates the Qi flow within the body to accelerate its natural healing powers. Both Qi Gong and acupuncture uses the same meridian framework. But with Qi Gong, your life force energy stimulates your meridian points and heals your body without ever piercing the skin. Instead, you’re treated to a refreshing acupressure massage.
In short simple moves, Qi Gong cultivates mind-body harmony as Yoga does. The Qi – equivalent of Yoga’s Hindu Prana – naturally runs down the meridians (known as nadis in Yoga) and draws your attention within your body without any willpower on your part. This is known as Moving Meditation in Qi Gong – where your body and mind are strengthened at the same time.
Tai Chi
Qi Gong practitioners experience strong health and vitality just like a Tai Chi practitioner would – without wasting years training or mastering difficult routines. Tai Chi, historically a martial art, draws its healing properties from Qi Gong. This is why Qi Gong practitioners experience health benefits sooner… even as they use it for the first time.
Reiki practitioners who practice Qi Gong will immediately spot the similarities in both. In fact, Reiki recipients report similar tingling and warm sensation commonly felt by a Qi Gong practitioner. While Reiki is less than a century old, it shares similar principles to Qi Gong, which has been practiced and perfected for over four thousand years.

Scientific Studies Behind This Medical Miracle!

'Proven by decades of scientific research in preventing and treating a myriad of illness and diseases''Proven by decades of scientific research in preventing and treating a myriad of illness and diseases'
Although we still don’t have all the answers, plenty of scientific studies conducted in China and America have established a solid scientific foundation for Qi Gong as a primary means of preventing and treating a variety of conditions and diseases.
That’s why major universities are incorporating integrative medicine – such as Qi Gong – into their medical schools. For example, University of Maryland’s Center for Integrative Medicine now features specific Qi Gong specialists and classes in their medical curriculum – a sign that modern science is finally catching up with this ancient practice.
Proven studies that support Qi Gong’s ability to help prevent and cure illnesses includes…
Less pain and greater freedom in movement without nasty side effects. Qi Gong promotes the production of enkephalin, a natural painkiller that’s 200 times more powerful than morphine. A large-scale study found Qi Gong’s effectiveness in easing pain and reducing stiffness for arthritis patients.
(University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, 2010)
Qi Gong lowers blood pressure significantly, cuts down cholesterol levels, and lowers anxiety levels. By doing so, Qi Gong reduces the risk factor for stroke, heart failure, kidney disease and increases life expectancy.
(Journal of Alternative Complementary Medicine, 2003)
Prevents exhaustion of heart muscles and prolongs your life. It’s nature’s way of improving red blood cells count and enhancing blood circulation with a “second heart”.
Using Qi Gong helps you enter a state of calm and quiet that very few people experience even in sleep.
High Blood Pressure:
Simple Qi Gong exercises are 9 times more powerful than taking prescribed drugs for high blood pressure.
(Shanghai Research Institute for Hypertension)
Those practicing Qi Gong show greater decline in blood sugar levels and reported better quality of life, mental health, and vitality.
(Journal of Complementary Medicine, June 2009)
Cancer Patients:
Show significantly higher wellbeing levels, improved cognitive functions, and less inflammation. Subjects even report greater sexual satisfaction.
(Sydney Medical School, 2011)
Chronic pain:
Relieves major symptoms of Fibromyalgia, including reduced pain, better quality sleep, and improved mood.
(New England Journal of Medicine, 2010)
Immune System:
Enhances white blood cell production, increases scavenger cells’ activity, and even revitalizes the bone marrow! Qi Gong increases the number of T-cells in the thymus gland and strengthens the immune system.
(Journal of American Geriatrics Society, April 2007)
Parkinson’s Disease:
Qi Gong reduces balance impairments, lowers incidences of falls, and improves overall functional capacity in Parkinson’s Disease patients. It even outperformed resistance training and stretching in this regard.
(The New England Journal of Medicine, February 2012)
When added to complement typical antidepressant medication, Qi Gong greatly reduces depressive symptoms, improves cognitive ability, and reduces inflammation throughout the body!
(American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, October of 2011)
And much, much more…

I Traveled to the East In Search Of The Secret Knowledge Behind This Life Force Miracle

Immediately after graduation, I set out to Asia and traveled far and wide, studying the ancient practices from many masters. It was an arduous journey but an incredible learning experience as I:
  • Studied bodywork and pressure points in China and Japan.
  • Trained with Tai Chi Masters from Hong Kong and Indonesia.
  • Completed two-week silent retreats with nine hours of meditation per day (and even meditated for ten days in complete darkness).
  • Spent 4 years traveling back and forth to Thailand to study Qi Gong. During my third trip, I had to pass rigorous tests to demonstrate my mastery of the practices and principles.
  • Spent 4 more years studying Traditional Chinese medicine and becoming a licensed Chinese medical doctor and acupuncturist.
  • Completed numerous Yoga Intensives, stood on my head, and could almost get my ankles behind my ears (soccer players have tight hips).

A lesser man would have cried like a baby.

Mastering the ancient disciplines through traditional practice was instrumental to my learning, but grueling. I had suffered “double days” in soccer before, but this training pushed me beyond limits that I thought were impossible. It took years of intense training until I was rewarded.
Even my master was skeptical that a white kid from California could master these internal arts.
He scrutinized every movement I learned until it was perfect. I would struggle to keep my balance, as he pushed me with all his force. He would correct every detail before saying “You only need to do this form 1,000 times more” – which meant it stunk completely. I did the exercise a thousand times and then another thousand before I nailed it.
None of it was easy. And meditation was no different.
Holding a thought for 20 minutes is difficult enough, let alone meditating for a full 9 hours without food, water, or sleep. You could imagine the extraordinary discipline required to meditate in complete darkness for 10 days without letting your mind unravel – a feat that seems brutal and punishing.
A lesser man would have cried like a baby.
Had anyone suggested to me that this traditional form of training would be popular in the West, I would not have believed it.
No one I know has time to commit 9 hours of practice per day, or even 30 minutes. Even if they did, only half would put up with the language barrier, leaving only a fraction who might stay until the bitter end of this steep learning curve.
If that didn’t discourage them, the training would have been too extreme to fit into their modern lifestyles. With more urgent priorities to take care of, like work and family responsibilities, they would have to be superhuman to pursue this form of training consistently—fortunately this was before my twins were born!
But finally, I discovered…

A Shortcut That Instantly SPARKSYour Healing Abilities And MULTIPLIES Its Power

My biggest epiphany was this — your Qi flows faster and deeper when your mind and body are relaxed.
It’s never about stretching the furthest, enduring the most pain, or performing every move to its minute perfection. In fact, the sole purpose of all the ancient practices is to circulate your Qi flow so your body can heal naturally.
With that in mind, I reconstructed the traditional learning approach to Qi Gong —while preserving its healing essence. The movements feel instinctive, effortless, and even comfortable… hardly like you’re exercising at all.
Here’s what happens when you relax into my Qi Gong movements….
Your body enters into a state of flow. Your mind returns to the present moment. Both body and mind harmonize, awaken your dormant energy, and activate your body’s inner healing power.Your Qi starts to flow easily…
As the sensation of Qi grows stronger in your body… it naturally draws your attention inward and relaxes your mind into a meditative zone easily and effortlessly. Your Qi is stronger…
Your body releases tension into flow. Your mind transforms stress into power. Your spirit elevates towards the direction of your Qi.Your Qi is even stronger now…
Repeat these movements… and your Qi grows in a continuous cycle.

'Over the years Lee has helped millions of people tap into their Qi with his series of books, CDs, and DVDs.''Over the years Lee has helped millions of people tap into their Qi with his series of books, CDs, and DVDs.'
Remember how Moving Meditation works? Using this new form of Qi Gong, not only do your mind and body relax, you are also using it to multiply your Qi flow at the same time.
This is what it looks like…
It seems so obvious. Yet most people lose sight of this in their practice.
So I laid it all out. I discarded all the mystical dogmas, complicated moves, and abstract theories. Then, I distilled each discipline to its essence and created my own style of modern Qi Gong that is easier to learn and use. In fact, you will be practicing the finer points of Qi Gong without even realizing it. What’s more, they are fun to do and require no special equipment.
My students called it “Lee Holden’s Qi Gong for Everyone” and the name has stuck ever since. It’s simply the most effortless energy exercise that exists today.
Traditional Qi Gong directs your movements down in technical detail. Instead, the gentle flowing movements you’ll use in this new form of Qi Gong are so effortless, your health begins to improve as you learn how to use them. The moves are so versatile, you can practice it anywhere, be it in the park or in the privacy of your bedroom – even if you only have 3 minutes to spare!

The best part… You only have to follow 3 steps.

Step 1: Feel your Qi.
Stirs up your dormant energy so you can begin to sense the Qi flowing in your body.
Step 2: Activate your Qi.
Directs your Qi around specific areas of your body to improve your health.
Step 3: Live with Qi.
Matches this effortless energy exercise into your daily lifestyle.

Lee Has A Gift… The Pain Is Gone
“Lee has a gift to take something very complicated and to make it very simple and direct without losing the essence of it. I have tried Tai Chi and given up because it was too complicated and time-consuming. I feel that the way Lee teaches Qi Gong is practical, not complicated, and not time-consuming. I got pain relief within 2-3 days. The pain is gone; it’s amazing!”

Here’s 6 Things You’ll Love About My Accessible Approach To Qi Gong

Effortless practice

The slow, graceful, and instinctive movements in this new Qi Gong will probably be the easiest thing you’ll ever learn and remember. You can stop worrying about performing the moves perfectly. The flowing movements work without making you sweat over minute details and feel completely natural – like you already knew each move.

Feel results faster

Once your Qi is reactivated, it circulates through damaged areas of your body first and accelerates the natural healing process. That’s why you will begin to feel your body and mental clarity improving, very often with little practice. Once you kickstart your Qi flow, the rest of your healing becomes easier from that point on.
'Students experience the benefits almost immediately, even if they’re just trying Qi Gong for the first time.''Students experience the benefits almost immediately, even if they’re just trying Qi Gong for the first time.'

Lee Holden's exercise takes only 3 minutes & it's really simple!''Exercise can protect your health and leave you with energy that lasts all day long. Lee Holden's exercise takes only 3 minutes & it's really simple!'

Requires little time

Everyone has a hectic schedule. So do I. To make it easier to incorporate Qi Gong into your daily life, I’ve designed short sessions for you to use in any given pocket of free time during the day. You get an immediate boost in energy through a 3-minute session. Even if you skipped one day of practice (happens even to the best of us), the accumulated benefits from your short sessions will make sure your health and vitality is well guarded.

No willpower

You don’t need to be physically fit or be a monk to use my style of Qi Gong. The “No Pain, No Gain” motto does not apply here either. Each effortless exercise relaxes you and naturally draws your attention within your body. In fact, you will get hooked to continue the entire routine within the first few seconds. When you’re finished, you will feel so energized and alert (rather than exhausted) that you can’t wait to practice again.

Everyone can do it

No matter how effective a healing technique is promised to be, it must first do no harm. How do you know for sure? Easy. If you don’t feel better after using a technique… STOP. You must not push any limits or make yourself feel uncomfortable. I made sure every Qi Gong movement passed this test before incorporating it into my modern style.
If you can’t move any part of your body due to physical injuries, safely omit the exercise and move on to the next. There’s nothing strenuous in this new form of Qi Gong, just slow and easy movements. Regardless of your current physical conditions, it cultivates the internal energy just the same, for both men and women. As long as you have a heartbeat, it doesn’t matter if your age is 9 or 99.
'Age really is just a number – anyone, young or old, can live a longer, healthier life with Qi Gong.''Age really is just a number – anyone, young or old, can live a longer, healthier life with Qi Gong.'
