he's seen over the years and the people have so much fun being part of this community and getting his latest and greatest insights the most wonderful thing about Spring Forest Qigong in my opinion is that as a master link continues to evolve his understanding and gain additional deeper insights into the teachings he shares them with us how many Grand Masters do that it's incredible it's one of the real blessings of being part of this practice so welcome consider going to the Spring Forest conference Master Chief Conference next Saturday and Sunday if you can't make it during the live time you

there from a special location so here we go without further Ado let's get going with today's practice as always we start with the feet at the width of the shoulders or slightly larger That Base that we use in the beginning of the universe position we concentrate on our breath focusing on the center of our chest on our heart center so we slow down our breath long slow deep breaths as we come into this moment we allow us this time for the practice and we begin with our bouncing so we're bouncing from the knees shoulders are relaxed forearms and the hands moving freely breathing into the nose and out to the mouth the mouth is open just a little bit and as you breathe out you try to Exhale for a little longer than you inhale and you are aware of the air passing over your lips the vibration of the air passing of your lips the warmth of the air passing over your lips when we do this practice the awareness is important the awareness elevates the practice elevates your ability to activate your cheat to feel the Key Energy circulating in your body now we're going to raise the arms up over the head softening the shoulders letting the wrists flap really continue to breathe into the nose and out to the mouth when Spring Forest we also place a lot of attention on your intention as you're dancing bouncing what is your intention your opening all the channels in your head in your neck in your shoulders your upper chest your upper back you're moving your lymph you're aligning all your internal organs they're sending that message to your whole body that you are here to activate your chin and you're having fun with it you're enjoying your balancing remember when you're outside it's a little kid playing on a beautiful summer day you're just having fun you're just feeling good nice now loading your hands you're going to continue to bounce as you swing a little left and right one hand tapping on the side of your ribs backhand on the center of the back behind the center of the navel now that your hands slowly come to the rest at your sides and already put your awareness on your fingertips on your palms feel the tingling feel the pulsing be aware of the chi in your body let's go with the tapping and the cupping phase of the preparation tapping on the center of the cheeks under the center of the eyes nine times now on the inside of the eyebrows one two three four five six seven four cupping or patting the top of the crown and then slang your hand to the base of the head and cupping there nine times reaching for the C7 vertebrae at the top of your back and the base of your neck and again what is your intention you are opening opening opening to see sudden this important energy button on the energy highway from your tailbone to your brain bring your hands down in front now we're going to clap them nine times step open your heart Channel popping inside the left elbow inside of the right up under the left armpit under the right armpit leaning forward with looseness tapping somebody on the kidney area say good morning or good day or good evening those kidneys vital energy ornaments and then lowering the tapping down to the sacrum and now to the tailbone area alternating the speed and intensity really giving a nice vibration to the tailbone so many benefits tapping on the table and area of this vital Energy Center at the tip of your spine I'm not going to the size of the hips leaning forward covering the tops of the knees in the backs of the knees the size of your left knee in the size of your right hand slowly straightening back up bring your hands into a prayer position and bowing gently forward as you humbly ask your God the Divine the universe your spiritual master your ancestors whoever it is that for you represents that unconditional love that powerful healing energy make a specific request for help with whatever challenge you have whether it's on the physical level emotional level or even the spiritual level asking for help with your love your kindness your compassion and then once you have you let that go you bring your arms down to your sides now you pay attention to your posture as we go into the beginning of the universe position with feet are firmly on the ground all four corners of your feet on the ground your toes can curl just a little bit just gripping just a little bit your knees are bent whatever level feels right for you your spine is straightened by tucking in your shin a little bit arms are rounded hands are spread fingers are open shoulders are relaxed smile on your lips as you change your reading to breathing eating out of your nose if you can today resting the tip of your tongue behind your two front teeth on your upper palate and now really focusing on the breath putting your awareness on the in-breath any address as you breathe in let your arms rise ever so slightly as you expand the energy sensation between your arms and your body and on the exhalation Let Them Fall Back Down keeping that space between the arms and the body we're already feeling your connection and cheat in your body and the chi around you and now we amplify that connection by saying the spring as far as password together say it out loud or say it to yourself I'm in the universe you feel how that feels for you the second part is the universe is in my body you connect to that feeling with your breath in the third part of the password the universe and I combine together and now you feel your connection to all beings to all things and you feel how good that feels you feel how peaceful you feel connecting with your breath as you breathe in you're aware of your in-breath and as you breathe out you're aware of your out breath so simply it's so powerful let's begin the active exercises today with the breathing of the universe bring your hands up in front of you like they're holding a volleyball your elbows are up should relax knees are bent remember that if you want more of them physical workout you can even bend your knees a little more totally optional but you can be aware of that now as you breathing you open and expand the energy ball between your hands and as you exhale you press on the edges of the ball and you straighten back up so breathing in opening and bending the knees to drop breathing out straightening and bringing the hands back together the focus is on the hands the meridians the six meridians ending in each of your hands are connected to your major organs and your brain that's why we focus on the hands feel the tingling you feel the pulsing you feel the warmth you feel the coolness however you experience the energy put your awareness there closing your eyes if you like to go deeper into the practice deeper into the emptiness and now connecting to the universal energy of joy thinking of something that makes you feel joyful or just affirming to yourself I am joyful joyful energy is filling me up you can visualize the joyful energy entering with the in-breath from every corner your skin flowing in and around every cell every organ every tissue every bone feeling yourself filling up with joy feeling the vibration of Joy feeling the spirit in your energy to the vibration of joy powerful vibrational balance out the energy in your heart system you can visualize a beautiful red light pink light surrounding your heart healing your heart as you connect to Joy Joy Joy slowing down the breath slowing down the movement focusing on the hands feeling the energy ball pressing back on you as you press on the ball feeling it resisting you pulling back on your hands as you open them remembering that an important part of the practice is also message healing signal healing sending a message to your body affirming to yourself all of my energy channels are open they are completely open saying to yourself any energy blockages are gone gone they are so completely gone now concluding with the affirmation I know that I am healing right now I know that I'm healing faster and more completely and you feel it you know that it is true nice now let's transition by bringing our hands in front of our chest there's a space between your hands and a space between your hands and your navel men traditionally with the right hand in front of the left women with the left and from the right as you breathe in your hands move towards your body your navel moves towards your spine just slight movements as you gather the chi in your lower down Tien your energy Reservoir three inches behind your navel and on the exhalation your belly goes out and down
