About that young lady and her navel piercing, can you tell when your qi energy is off? Is there any "symptoms" or signs to tell if it is imbalanced or not?

Qi or chi unbalance symptons? poor sleeping, shortness of breath after mild exertion, twitching muscles, upset stomach/bowel problems, balance problems. Could also be flu symptons. Could also been punched/kicked in center of body(centrum). Helpful to restore- Tatien breathing while doing knuckle pushups, ginseng tea, 3 days of rice/greens & onion/garlic,some bean and fish, practice seisan and/or pinan katas-wouldn't hurt anyway. RN.

Ok...I'll bite

...I've heard it can get imbalanced when you have a navel ring.

I also understand that you can reverse the flow...but I can't tell you'll have to look that up yourself. It's kinda dangerous, and I don't want to share in any kind of liability due to messed up qi.

...hmmm not sure if reversing the qi resets the disrupted flow of energy or this post may not be of any real assistance to you at all!

When you find out, let us know!


Have a nice qi day! :-)

The "Emily" from the navel subject was at & so is your current poster. In my opinion, dogbardave, your post about the 'behavior modification' was excellent hound-dogging... Dee

Heya Sid ~~communal is...    Posted 07-02-2004 at 14:51:39       [Reply]  [No Email]
as communal does... world is an interesting place, isn't it? One era you see an VW bus tooling down the boulevard sporting every art shape of different colors, next era, you see people holding their pet rocks, next few eras up, you see 'hip' fellas walking down the sidewalk holding their trousers with one hand in front of their perineums because that is the style (and if they need to run, the pants would be around their ankles tumbling their bodies into a heap). What type of QI energy would account for those things? I wonder what kind of QI energy went into dreaming up farmer's overalls so many eons ago to accommodate the QI energy of the 'wearers' ?? :~) Dee in mid MO

Well i am thankful for that energy that dreamed up bib overalls. I for one don't have to hold them up with one hand in front of whatever that long word was you used. I have enough trouble trying to run as it is. Thanks for the thought provoking info.

ok, I'll bite just what is this qi energy stuff you folks are talking about? Can I use to run my electric car I am planning on building some day? Does it come in pill form, maybe a purple one:^)

..."This is one of the most common questions Americans ask about Chinese Medicine, and not an easy one to answer. Qi (pronounced "chee" and sometimes spelled 'chi') is possibly the most essential and the most controversial aspect of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Biomedicine often feels it can quite easily dismiss parts or all of TCM by maintaining that modern science cannot verify the existence of qi. The false idea that qi is an 'energy' like electricity has worsened this controversy.

... "Consider this convenient car-engine analogy: Yin is water from the radiator to cool the engine, blood is oil, qi is the force that moves the pistons, and the engine can be said to be in a yang state when operating. Perhaps the explosion itself is yang, while the force of the explosion is qi. We can also say that the gas contains a qi that has yet to be utilized.

(In the actual chinese character for the word, qi is the steam rising from a cooking pot of rice. I hope that explanation made sense to ancient Chinese, because it doesn't make much to me! To be fair to the ancient chinese, we can think of the steam coming from the rice as being less substantial, more yang than the rice itself, but still...)" QI, cars, rice --- your purple pills?? I dunno, help yourself,sir ron,ar ... Dee
