“You do know that your tumor is malignant, don’t you?”

This is how the oncologist informs me of my condition on December 23, 2011.  After the initial shock, my qigong breathing kicks in, and I recall that the Chinese character for crisis is the same as the one for opportunity.*

Slowly breathing in and out, I make a real effort to remember this as my children, Jennifer and Matthew, and I absorb the news that I have cancer.

This is my second bout with cancer. 1994 ended with a dx of  a malignant polyp in the colon.

This time, the dx is a malignant gastrointestinal stromal tumor, one that appeared at the end of Nov., 3 days before I am due to fly home from my year’s sojourn in Bali and Singapore, back to the U.S.

I now know that this tumor is a slow-growing one that just decided to suddenly pop up. It reminds me of the Taoist Qigong Masters’ stipulation that the disease is inside the body for a long time before the symptom appears.  And, so, this may have been inside me the whole time I was away in Bali and Singapore all of 2011, and I didn’t know it.

Even as I remember crisis and opportunity, at the same time, I wonder how I am to deal with yet another trauma in my life!

FEATURE OF THE MONTHWu Dong Long Men Qigong Saved My Life!This ancient Chinese self-healing module built up my depleted immune system following my bout with cancer.After 16 years, I am still cancer free!Aside from cancer, qigong also helped me to heal from the traumatic experiences of physical, emotional and sexual abuse.  I discovered this healing power when I first worked with other abuse survivors in my psychotherapy practice. Using qigong to help them calm down, I quickly realized it was also lessening and, in many instances, eliminating their symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).Their flashbacks and nightmares reenacting their trauma decreased or disappeared completely. It did the same for my symptoms. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s time again for another remote group qigong healing session: Sunday, May 2nd, 10-11 a.m. !

If you want a general overview about qigong, please go to my December 6, 2009 blog in Archives.

In a group healing session, I will sit comfortably, breathing deeply to bring myself into a meditative healing state. I ask the participant to do the same thing – find a comfortable position, breath down and relax. I go through the same process whether I am with the person, on the phone, or sending remote healing.  I will request healing for the person by name, make any requests they have, then the healing begins.

I never know what transpires in these sessions. I leave that up to Spirit. That’s why the client’s feedback is important and serves a dual purpose. It confirms whether their experience correlates with mine. And,  it allows the client to bring the experience into consciousness.  Awareness is key, as is participating in the healing process.

I also never know how long the sessions will take, although they generally last 30-40 minutes. Of course, the larger the group, the more time I will need to place everyone’s name and requests into the healing circle. I know when to stop because the energy leaves me.  It is important to know that while the energy leaves me as a signal to stop, the healing continues another 24-36 hours for the participants.

For best healing results, please follow guidelines below:

  • Eat light one hour before healing
  • Hydrate before and after healing
  • Wear loose comfortable clothes
  • Best to be indoors so you are not distracted by outside elements
  • Find a place where you are not disturbed. That means turning off your cell phone and all other electronic equipment
  • Be quiet and relax at least several hours after healing
  • Feedback and q&a in Comments Section helps to build support network. Please use initials or first names for confidentiality. Everything will be held in strictest confidence.

*These sessions DO NOT replace seeing a physician or a licensed psychotherapist for trauma treatment. In fact,  you need to seek such treatment to deal effectively with your symptoms.

A reminder that I will be doing a remote group trauma healing this Sunday, April 11, 10-11 a.m. Next month, we are back to the first Sunday of the month. For those of you who had signed up for April 4th, I thank you for understanding the change of date and time.

Please scroll down to read or re-read guidelines for the optimum healing experience. And, remember, please sign in under Group Healing Page or click on left column under Group Trauma Healing.

Be with you on Sunday!

Didn’t think I’d be writing today, Christmas Day. However, musings come unbidden and when the writing bug hits, I have to write!

I was thinking about Christmases past and feeling very grateful that, even with the recession going on, my family and I are together, live in a lovely home, and are able to put food on the table. This wasn’t always the case in my family of origin.

People don’t necessarily think of going through bankruptcy as trauma.  But, not understanding U.S. laws, my parents didn’t even know they could file for bankruptcy and get some help. They struggled, scared and alone. Read the rest of this entry »

Qigong saved my life!

This article, therefore, will provide an overview of the following:

  • Definition of qigong
  • Historical and cultural context
  • General benefits
