Spring Forest Qigong - from Happy for No Reason (book)
1. Relax in the proper position - Sand with your feet a bit mor than shoulder-width apart, knees slightly bent, and look forward. Smile and relax. Draw your chin back slightly to straighten the spine. Drop your shoulders and move your elbows out a little. Open your hands and spread your fingers.
2. Breathe deeply - slowly take three deep, gentle breaths through your nose. Imagine using your whole body to brathe. Visualize energy coming in and collecting in your belly. When you exhale, visualize any pain or sikness changing into smoke and shooting out from every cell into the universe.
3.Silently say the phrases - Close your eyes and silently say the phrases, "I am the universe. The universe is in my body. The universe and I combine together." Take a moment to feel the quietness, the stillness of the universe.
4. Move your hands - As you inhale, slowly move your hands wide apart and to the sides. As you exhale, slowly bring your hands back together (don't let your hands touch each other). When you open your arms, feel the energy expanding in the space between your hands. When you bring your hands toward each other, feel the energy compressing in the space between them.
Do the exercise for five to six minutes. When finsihed, take three slow, gentle deep breaths, and allow yourself to relax for another minutes or two.
