Internal QiGong – NeiDan Gong Standing, Sitting, or Lying Meditation
Internal QiGong NeiDan Gong meditation practice is similar to the external practice in terms of aligning your breath with movement. In short the biggest difference there is little physical you align breath with thought.
By the same token, multiple forms of meditation have astounding benefits for the mind and body connection, including
- Calmness, Focus, in the most chaotic situation
- Increasing Willpower
- Stimulates the relaxation response which is critical for long term health care. This response is critical for our bodies to maintain homeostasis and must be stimulated at least once each day.
Health and wellness stems from within. Afterall, your mind regulates everything you do. Internal QiGong helps you make those healthy choices.
In essence your mind and body make the temple for your spirit to live out its will. Meditation is the broom that sweeps the temple, the sponge that cleans the dishes, and the paint that is on the walls of temple. All together in order to have the ability to self govern in stressful and chaotic situations, you must gain control of the mind.
Equally important, meditation allows you to maintain a strong grip on your principles and values. Comparativley this is the foundation for your temple. Without a strong foundation the smallest storm that life brings can be disastrous.
Long term physical benefits of NeiDan Gong practice include
- Nervous system enhancements
- Cardio enhancements with increased Oxygen Intake and decreased levels of carbon dioxide in the blood.
- Reduction in Heart Rate, and Blood Pressure
