Quoted from Serenity
We don't have a Chi Gong centre nearby (but would enrol the second one opened!) but I go to Tai Chi as well as yoga each week & without them I would be in a sorry state indeed!


I don't have time to go to classes. I bought this DVD course on Chi gong from here:
http://www.learningstrategies.com/Qigong/Home.asp    Master Lin says you can cure most every disorder with chi gong.  It's about 8 exercises so it's easy to learn. There's a DVD on how to do each exercise.

Quoted from Averno



Stretch as needed, but consider Yoga, Chi Gong, Tai Chi, etc to be primarily concerned with the mind-body connection. The connection you make with vigorous exercice is one kind, Yoga etc. another. They are certainly compatible, even beneficial one to the other. But trying to do Yoga while you're jazzed? Give it a while and approach it properly.    


Yeah, maybe I should begin with yoga. I'm so impatient is the problem. I have a hard time stopping my mind from spinning out of control. The jogging gives me an outlet to put that energy I guess. It's actually pretty addictive once I get going. I need to learn how to calm the heck down.

Ah...youth...  

Sound like you need both even more than you know.

The quiet mind is a gift. It begins with focused breathing and letting your mind go with the flow. Be open to this.

Just a suggestion-- loose the music. Be 100% aware of you, now, in this world.

I wanted to share with you all this short QiGong video by Ken Holden, that I really like a lot.  It's only about 7 minutes long, which is great for me and it's free, so I don't have to purchase a DVD.  I generally have my computer on every day anyway, so it's so simple for me to click on this and do it once in the morning and once in the evening.  Even once a day is wonderful, if that's all I manage to do.

I've practiced a lot of different forms of QiGong and this is my current favorite.

The quiet mind is for sleeping I guess I am uncertain of where my mind is supposed to flow whenever I focus my breathing and all of that. These days I'm too scared to be open to anything. I keep my guard up. The exception to that is prayer I suppose.

Music is the one thing that keeps me sane and makes me feel like I have meaning. I need that - art - it also helps me write. And you are right I need to be more aware of the now. That is something I have a hard time maintaining a grip on which is why working out helps - so I can feel fully in my body.

Then pray. Listen to what your mind and body are telling you. Uncertainty is OK.

There is a time and place for all that you've mentioned.  But being constantly in a state of receiving outside stimulus wears on you both physically and mentally. Sort it out.

Thanks for the link Victoria.    I paid $200 for my QiGong course. Came with a DVD and CD's and a workbook.  They since lowered the price to $149.00 Still not cheap.   From what I understand there are many QiGong masters and systems and basically people use the one they feel most comfortable with.  I tried a few cheaper $19.99 videos but I just felt the first one I bought was the one I was lead to by the PTB.

Thanks, Averno. I appreciate the advice. I think I may be experiencing S.A.D. or something. When I slow down I feel really blaah even though I'm eating very healthfully. Not sure what the deal is. All I know is I'm not myself and I don't want to feel this way.

Didn't want to make a thread about this so I guess I'll ask here.  Anyone know if the University is open on the weekends or the current hours for the teaching shift that I'm reading about?  I finally am ready to go.

I didn't find hours posted for The Shift, only for Private practice visits at COEGM.  This seems to be the most informative page I can find, but there are many different pages on the COEGM site.

Not that I know of. I've been there for a clinic visit once. I could only go during the week.

According to the genotype test I am a warrior    (A+, torso shorter than legs, upper legs longer than lower legs, ringfingers longer than indexfingers).
I understand that warriors are usually tall people, and often thin. Well, I am not. I am only 5.4 feet and normal built (never been directly thin). Is it many warrior women who are this height?

Curly, I am also 5'4" and fat to boot. I thought for sure that I was a Gatherer but the proofing put me solidly in the Warrior category.

I am 5'3 & an ectomorph, torso slightly longer than legs & swami labels me a warrior also.  There is more to being a warrior than tall and long legs it seems!

I do different qigong exercises, every day pretty much.  It really helps me to endure stress better and really helps with strength and i feel pretty much everything.  Its good because it can be done anywhere pretty much day or night, rain or shine!

This one is really simple but very effective too to get into it.

Hello all,

I initially joined this forum a couple of days ago and thought I was a teacher.  I modified my profile after getting my secretor status (non-secretor)and changing my jaw angle, and I'm now a warrior.  I think this diet will work better for me than the Teacher diet, and some of the health issues fit me better for Warrior.  For example, no cancers in my family, but lots of heart problems.  

I have swami, and reading through some of the comments here, it seems like Swami is really customized for each individual.  I can have eggs 7 servings a week, and others list that they can't have eggs.  

What I like better about the Warrior diet than teacher diet for me is that with Teacher, I can eat tons of cheeses, and as a Warrior, I have limited dairy options.  I don't do well with tons of cheeses/dairy -- my sinuses act up.  

Anyhow, I just wanted to say hi.

Hi  
Oh, the power of cheese.  My sinuses act up too. I reallly should get off all dairy. I'm working on it. I was born allergic to cown's milk, thought I out grew it but I don't think I really did.  My other problem is wheat. I am gluten intolerant and I can tolerate a little wheat but not a lot of it. I've been trying to go gluten free for a long time. There are some benefits from wheat though, like how they say wheat causes lethargy and sleepiness? Well A's are so stressed out that we really need that opiate effect lol.

Any Warriors out there have weight issues from eating wheat?... I actually didn't have any..until I got older.  Unless it's the frankenwheat that's causing it.

Not all Warriors are the same.  My DH is a Warrior....Many of his ancestors had diabetes....Given
he's vulnerable, although not diabetic (thank goodness), his SWAMI lists no concentrated forms of sugar and very few natural sugars.  As soon as you start ticking off your ancestor's weakest links, SWAMI makes adjustments....adds and subtracts accordingly..

I was literally a pasta addict until BTD, but didn't gain a lot of weight until middle age (if you read Dr. D's AB profile and warrior profile, they describe me to a T). Our metabolic constitution could probably handle it for awhile, but around 40-50 it all catches up. Dominoes...

The Frankenwheat question is interesting but I think Dr. D. drew his conclusions about wheat-eating before GMO was so widespread. Nevertheless, I have no doubt that GMO causes all kinds of health problems, and probably amplifies the consequenses of wheat-eating.

Even on BTD, I was still eating it on occasion in very small amounts up until about 6 months ago (mostly gluten additives in otherwise healthy foods. Ahem.. Ezekiel english muffins anyone?). Now, 100% wheat free, the difference is quite noticeable. More content? At ease? Less agitated, for sure.

I was going to post this in the fitness thread but I want it in the Warrior thread for other Warriors..in case maybe it will help them if I can prove my theory....

Even though I'm still recovering from the broken wrist, I'm trying to get back into my aerobic dvd's again. I'm working on exercise theory of exercise being more important than diet, for weight loss..Have you noticed the O's are the most successful at losing weight? More muscle, more intense exercise.  of course eating the proper diet for my BT makes me feel more balanced but Dr. D said that Warriors who don't work out regularly will be fat. He also said nothing wrong with A's intensely working out as long as we do our de-stressing..  

I'm keeping track of my workouts. I'm no longer walking. I think that's a better exercise for Teachers. I mean for exercise. I still like to walk for stress release..  I have a lot of aerobic dvds from Sansone to Hip Hop Abs, Turbo Jam, Zumba..etc.  So to prove to DOS that exercise is very important..here I go
