Qigong Breathing True Healing Miracles

What if the fastest, most direct route to healing existed right under our noses--literally? It does; it's our breath, bringer of oxygen, channel of life energy and source of true miracles. Your breath is so powerful that it can, in fact, send your body humming like a car engine. Besides delivering oxygen, the breath channels a powerful force in the body, an energy called Qi. This Qi energy causes the body to "vibrate," increasing organ function, balancing metabolism and promoting healing.

Your physical body is overlapped by a spiritual energy body and this is the one that vibrates and it is also the body we are seeking to 'activate' in Qigong. Everyone has Qi; however some people can hold 10-1000 times the amount of a normal person. The term 'activate' refers to the Qigong principle of filling up the storage center (Dan Tien) with Yang Qi thereby increasing the flow of Qi to such a degree that ones Qi can be seen as cobalt blue vapors rising from the skin. This cobalt blue substance is the universal color of Yang Qi and its cultivation leads to higher levels of body function.

But, is this the limit of Qigong? I once heard a man say Qigong was metaphysical, but not spiritual. Is cultivating the living energy of God not a spiritual practice? And how does any of this relate to creating miracles?

What is a True Miracle?

A miracle can be defined as any event that is so statistically unlikely, it cannot be explained by natural laws, or even attributed to random chance. For example, say John Smith, a soccer superstar, tears a tendon during a big game. Physical law dictates that a torn tendon takes considerable time to heal, perhaps several months. Even if one had profound levels of Qi, this kind of injury would require many concurrent sessions and considerable time to heal. Now, if the torn tendon healed instantly during halftime while John was on the sidelines, this would be a miracle. The statistical probability of instantaneous healing is so remote; it appears to defy the natural laws. However, after years of clinical work with nearly a dozen renowned Qigong masters, shamans and healers of many faiths, I have personally witnessed two different types of energy healing: 1) Qi Healing 2) Miraculous Healing.

Qi healing is an ancient practice based on Qigong breathing disciplines. It can be used to treat almost any illness, physical or emotional, from asthma and migraines to depression and anxiety. It is based on the Qigong theory that all around us there is living "Qi Plasma" that permeates every square inch of the universe and throughout all of existence. During Qi healing, the practitioner uses specialized breathing techniques to first absorb Qi and then "pressurize" Qi in his or her Dan Tien, the body's storage area for Qi, located behind the belly button. Qigong breathing practices create tremendous heat in the body, which builds up in the hands. The practitioner then places his or her hands on or near the person being treated, transmitting the Qi. People who receive this intense dose of energy usually have some immediate response. They may gently sway or undulate as the Qi energy enters their cores; some people will laugh, cry or have what they later call a "spiritual experience."

As powerful as the Qi Healing experience is, it's a process; several sessions are usually required to completely heal a serious problem. Instantaneous healing is extremely rare. Even so, it sometimes happens, especially with particularly powerful healers and between people who share an especially strong connection--say, a husband and wife, or a parent and child. These kinds of healings, which defy even the laws of Qi, are what I call miraculous healing.

Miraculous Healing Example

High-level Qigong can manifest true miracles from God or the ultimate energy. Using Qi to perform healing is not the same as harnessing this ultimate energy. Miraculous healing describes an instantaneous healing of body, mind or spirit; in miraculous healing, a deep and lasting cure is affected. The healing is complete and immediate, and never returns. Miraculous healing begins with the same breathing mechanics and energy flow principles, but it also requires the mental assent by the patient. When one is willing to heal, when one has faith, miraculous healing can begin.

Here's a true story to illustrate. A few years ago, my wife injured her knee in a ski accident. The ski patrol carried her on a snow mobile down the mountain; when I met her at the bottom, she looked up in agony and said, "I need to go to the hospital!" Her knee was swollen with visible internal bruising.

It was a reasonable request. Even so, spirit moved me to insist she sleep first, before going to the hospital. The next morning, she woke up and sat up on the edge of the bed. When she tried to stand up, she winced horribly in pain. I asked her if she was willing to let me try Qi healing on her knee. She agreed, both reluctant and hopeful.

I practiced Qigong for an hour and returned to the room when my hands were fully charged with energy. But instead of using my usual approach, I was guided to try something different. I stood beside the bed and asked her, "Do you believe you can be healed, totally and completely, on this very day?" She looked doubtful, but said "Yes." I placed my hands over her knee and began practicing my usual method of focused Qigong breathing. The pulsation between my hands and her knee became very intense; after about 20 minutes, she said, "I can feel a strong current flowing from your palms." Sensing the opportunity I asked her again: "Do you think it is possible to heal completely and totally on this very day?" She smiled and her eyes filled with tears. "Yes," she said. "I do believe it is possible."
