These days there is a booming healing business. You can’t name it, you’ll find it. I know that I’m part of it, although I don’t consider myself a healer. People come to me to help me heal their ailments whatever they may be. They heard stories from their friends, they read about it on internet or they talked with me personally. So now they think Medical Qi Gong will get rid of their disease. And it does, don’t get me wrong. But in a very different way than we might think.
Real healing is not about trying to get rid of things. It’s not about “Oh I will do some exercises and I’ll finally be free of this pain, headache, depression, anxiety, … Fill in the blank for yourself. It’s not about fighting against it, getting rid of it or doing something about it.
Real healing starts when we become aware of all the ways we are fighting against our pain, our disease, our condition. Real healing starts when we dare to let go of the suppressing, the numbing of our feelings and sensations. Real healing starts when we start to open up. And that’s exactly what Medical Qi Gong aims for. By become aware of your body, by centering yourself. There will be discomfort, there will be wanting to get rid of that, there will be fear, there wil be frustration, there will be sadness. But there also will be happiness, joy, wonderment, a sense of accomplishment. One not better than the other but all to be allowed in the space that is you. That’s real healing! Allowing all that is there at any given moment.
Allowing the pain, at the same time allowing the part of you that wants to get rid of it, allowing the fear that you’re not able to handle this, allowing all the sensations you feel in your body. Being with it. All of it.
That’s what is meant by “finding your center”. That physical and mental state where allowing happens and real healing takes place. By you, not by me! You are the real healer here, I’m only a guide on your way.
