“What does it mean that hope is as hollow as fear?
Hope and fear are both phantoms
that arise from thinking of the self.
When we don’t see the self as self,
what do we have to fear?”
Tao Te Ching, #13, Translated by S. Mitchell
Upcoming Event! Chair Tai Chi will be hosting a Carnival of Healing on July 19th. The posting will be filled to the brim with informative resources on healing your body, mind and spirit.
If you have an informational blog (not a blog or website for selling a product) that deals with holistic healing methods such as energy healing, Reiki, exercises, color, vibrational or theta healing, I would love to include a link to your blog in the Carnival. Please send your information to me at email@example.com. Include your name, website or blog address, the title of your blog/site and your email address so I can respond. Also include the particular article(s) you’d like to have featured either as an attachment or by copying and pasting it into your email. The deadline for submissions is Thursday, July 17th.
Posture – Remain in the same seated position that you have used in the other exercises. Be relaxed but don’t slump in your chair.
Benefits – The release of negative emotions that interfere with your well-being.
Sit with your hands resting on your thighs.
As you breathe in, lift both hands to mid-chest level.
Breathe out through your mouth and push forward. Keep your arms and hands relaxed as you push.
When your elbows are almost straight, breathe in again and return your hands to mid-chest level.
Breathe out as you push your hands straight forward again.
Repeat your in-and-out breaths for a total of at least 9 times. Remember to push your negative feelings out with each outgoing breath.
Locate this point on the inside wrist crease of your arm. It is below your little finger just beneath the knobby bone of your hand.
Press on this point for at least 60 seconds any time during the day when you’re feeling particularly anxious as well as at the end of this exercise session.
Benefits – Regular use of this point will relieve anxiety, nervousness and emotional imbalances.
Don’t forget to replenish your fluids with a glass of water at the end of your exercise session. A word of caution…if you have or have had kidney problems, please consult your physician regarding the amount of water appropriate for your condition.
