Lift Chi Up and Pour Chi Down Method
Objective: Awaken your energy body and unite it with the universal energy
Qigong is an effective training to improve health and heal dis-eases through activating the life energy within the body as well as absorbing energy from the universe.
The main points are:


a. Unite the mind with chi and direct chi with the mind. Through the open-close movements and the mental visualization, release/expand the internal chi from the body and draw in the external primeval energy so as to improve the integration of a person’s energy field with the universal energy. This will improve all functions of the body.

b. It is a very effective method to collect the universal chi. Through this training a person will be able to learn how to administer the external chi to treat patients in a short time.
Mental Visualization


This practice stresses directing chi with the mind. During the exercise, think of the head touching the sky and the feet plunging deeply into the earth. Let yourself integrate with the universe. During the exercise think of the horizon (or ocean of life energy) when you push out and think of the depth inside your body (like the holographic human body or pure energetic body) when you pull in. Collect the chi beneath your feet and bring it up into your
Dan tian. Let the chi in the sky and beneath the earth, merge with your body's chi at your navel. Let yourself unite and integrate with the universe.
Opening Posture: Organizing a Chi (life energy) Field.

Adjust posture:



  1. Feet comfortably together, flat on the ground (keep knees together).

  2. Lift up BaiHui, opening your heavenly gate, tuck in chin (towards Adam’s apple) [you’re awareness from chin into Adam’s apple, from Adam’s apple up to YuZhen, from YuZhen up again to BaiHui, from inside BaiHui lift up], tip of your tongue touches up to palace (begin with tongue behind your upper teeth);

  3. Body centered and leaning forward slightly (shift your weight to front part of your sole), feel YongQuan opening, connecting the earth energy beneath you;

  4. Shoulders, arms, hands, and fingers relax down at sides, (fingers gently together, palms facing the legs, middle fingers towards leg seams), feel empty space under the armpits.

  5. Relax your chest and back, tuck in stomach, open lower back backwards, shift your hip downwards and at the same time forward, lift your tail bone upward; lift up HuiYing.

  6. Keep your soft vision looking forward for a few seconds (beyond the view, imagine the horizon in front of you), slowly withdraw your soft vision inwardly in to Yin Tang, gently close your eyelids (during whole practice the eyeballs keep looking forward). Feel the inner smile.



*BaiHui (hundred gathering): draw two lines from the top of ears up to top of the head, about 1 centimetre towards back from that point.

*YuZhen (jade pillow): at the center of the backside of head, right under the tip of the skull, opposite from YinTang, when the BaiHui is facing up.

* YongQuan (bubbling spring): at front center of the soles.



*HuiYing (gathering Ying): perineum.
Opening Sequence

Use your little fingers guiding the rotating of your wrist, arms and shoulders, turning palms facing to the back.


Advanced: The palms should be facing the legs, in the middle of the thighs, perpendicular to the body, not turned in or out. The movement is started with the little fingers coming out, and with a continuous motion the palms come up until the palms are facing the earth. Project light or chi, out from the hands to the earth.
Continually use your middle fingers guiding palms turning facing down, palms and arms at 90 degrees, feel the center of your palms (LaoGong) open and extended (connecting with the earth energy beneath you); arms extended, the movement starts from your shoulder joints, hands push forward 15 degrees (about a hand distance from leg seam), pull back, inward, then back to the side (bottom of your thumb towards leg seam), repeat 3 times.
Advanced: initiate the movement from your shoulders, bringing the hands forward, push the energy out by pushing your palms out and visualize pushing light out of your hands to the earth. Hands come back while pulling the energy back in, cupping the hands, visualizing beams of light coming into the hands, into your body.

Use your little fingers to guide the rotating of your wrist, at the same time arms and shoulders rotating back. Turn palms facing each other to beginning position. Relax your arms. Slowly arms float up diagonally to the front to shoulder width (shoulders guiding arms, arms guiding hands, palms and fingers relaxed, thumb and index finger open, tiger mouth facing up, imagine your hands holding a big Chi ball rising up from earth), hands up to navel level. Turn palms facing your abdomen, tip of your middle finger slightly pointing towards the navel (emitting Chi into your DanTian). Use your little finger to guide hands, turning palms facing down. Arms and hands relaxed and extended. Opening arms and hands, circle around at the waist level to your sides. Continually move to your back (visualize your hands and arms merging into ocean of Chi in the horizon), arms forming a circle, elbows turned outwardly, hands at waist level, turn palms facing your MingMen, (center of your palms slightly hollow, little fingers slightly curved) (emitting ocean of Chi into DanTian).

Lower your elbows down horizontally, continually toward back. When wrists reach the sides of your chest, elbows open to both sides, retract arms and bring in the tips of the middle fingers to press DaBao under your armpits, palms facing upward. Open your chest, relax your shoulders. (Think of chi flowing into and meeting at the middle of your body).
Extend your hands to the back (with palms facing up and fingers pointing to back), until the arms are fully stretched at your MingMen level. Open the arms to the side, and at the same time turn palms facing outward. Move to the sides, rotate palms to face the front (arms still straight).
