Qigong has always been an invitation to listen deeply as an integral part of practice. When we listen with our whole being, we hear what cannot be heard and see what cannot be seen by normal senses, especially when something has gone awry in our bodies. With practice, our intuition increases and we have the potential to discern the difference in the signals between an emergency 911 call for help in our body's distressed cells and organs, or whether we just need a little TLC or a day off. Through this type of listening, we can respond with more intelligent, choice-full action. We make wiser food choices, take more time for self-care, conserve our energy for self-healing, or when we are well, put it towards creative endeavors that are meaningful to our lives.
On a macrocosmic level, this deep listening helps us to prevent or respond appropriately to a natural disaster such as a hurricane or a forest fire, or an unnatural disaster such as war or the the devastation of the world's bee populations. When we observe and listen deeply to our environment, we can root out the original cause of a problem and potentially prevent it from growing into a global cancer.
Regardless of the scale, it is during troubling times that our Qigong is tested and we are asked once again to listen deeply in order to regain internal balance, mental clarity and a broader understanding of life. When we are able to do this, new information and life-enhancing solutions can arrive in our consciousness to serve the greater good.
