What is Zhineng Qigong

What is Zhineng Qigong?

Zhi is wisdom. It is the ability of the brain to deal with the outside world. Neng is ability.  This includes mental and physical abilities. Zhineng Qigong literally means a practice that will develop the wisdom and abilities of a person.

Zhineng Qigong was created in 1982 by Dr Pang Ming, a Qigong scholar who is also a medical doctor and a Chinese physician. The practice is now well-known throughout the world.  The record thus far has proven that this is an effective Qigong that wards off diseases, improves longevity, and improves physical and mental health. It also redevelops our hidden capabilities (eg: reading through obstacles, the ability to perceive without using the five senses, etc).

Since the emergence in 1982 Zhineng Qigong has shown great power in treating diseases. Many difficult and complicated cases achieved miraculous results through Zhineng Qigong. An analysis report [1] of 47864-case-study of patients that enrolled in Zhineng Qigong Recovery Centre from March 1992 to December 1996  (excluding those with malignant tumours) has indicated that 23.50% patients met the criteria of getting cured, 40.70% of them fulfilled the criteria of having very effective results and total rate of effectiveness was 99.05%.

Over the years, practice methods have been further refined and customized for specific illnesses. And results are being obtained in a even faster manner.

What is qi? Ancient Qigong masters propounded that there is a finest matter in the universe, matter with no shape or form, that cannot be seen by the naked eyes that was found at the very beginning of the universe. Some called it dao, some taiji, some yuan qi.  In Zhineng Qigong we call this finest element primeval qi.

Let’s take a look at modern physics. In September 2008 the underground hadron collider in Switzerland tried to recreate the Big Bang, to hunt for the particle that gave the universe its form. The Big Bang theory, propounds that everything in the universe comes from the same source, built up from the same fundamental unit. This fits with the findings of the ancient qigong masters.

What is qigong? Qigong is founded on the traditional understanding of the holism of life. Holism of life being a theory that the universe, especially living nature is correctly seen in terms of interacting as wholes not just the sum of elementary particles or the sum of it’s parts.  It is a training that involves the conscious use of the mind to focus inwards. The practice transforms, improves and raises a persons life functions. It changes ones natural instinctive life activities into a conscious mindful practice.

Generally people’s mental activities focus outward, on what is happening outside their bodies, focusing on their outside activities, their life activities.  Such phenomenon is known as outward focusing. Qigong practice requires us to focus inwards to merge with one’s life activity. For instance, when we are practicing a breathing exercise we focus on our breath, which is a life activity. When we practice a dynamic Qigong exercise like Body Mind Form we focus on the execution of the exercise.  Our attention stays inside our body.   However when we are doing  other physical exercise like playing tennis, we focus on the ball that we are going to hit and our attention is outside our body.  Qi generated in other physical exercise is converted into strength to deliver what we want to achieve outside our body. In dynamic Qigong practice, the attention is focused on the execution rather than an outside target.  The Qi being mobilized will not be converted into strength to carry out tasks outside the body but will be used to strengthen the Qi channels inside the body to strengthen the body.

In everyday life, our mental activity is always expanding from one point to many. The content keeps changing and diverging. In Qigong practice, mental activity is focused inward into a single content. By definition, Qigong involves a single-minded focus. Such a focus is also one way to determine whether a particular health-promoting activity is a form of Qigong. For instance, while listening to a conversation a person’s mind is normally put in a multi-tasking function and usually we think of many other things at the same time while trying to listen. However in Qigong practice the mind has to focus on one thing instead of many. For example, in the execution of movements in qigong exercise, the mind gives the order to execute and the movement is carried out – without any thoughts or concept in between and without thinking of other things.

When we are deeply engrossed in reading, working or watching a movie, although the mind is fixated on a single issue, the focus is outside one’s own life sustaining activities. That made the difference between what is Qigong and non Qigong practices.
