My own long bumpy journey to discovering my authentic path brought me to Qigong, one of the five branches of Chinese Medicine; the oldest one.
Qigong has changed my life, and my practice.
For 31 years I've been helping folks ease their various pain points and in the process begin a path of optimum wellness.
Now, at 68 years old, I've decided to pass on my knowledge.
As a Wellness Coach, I'll teach you the ultimate self-care practice of Quantum Qigong and the ancient secrets it holds. I'll mix in a smattering of Quantum Physics to make it more relevant for our culture. Along with the Quantum Qigong Masterclass I've created for you, I'll provide some Blog Wisdom to help you get unstuck so that you are able to optimize your own health and wellbeing!
-To Your Health!
If you ever find yourself stuck in a pattern that isn't bringing you happiness, success or purpose, try this powerful tool!
OK, this may seem way to easy.
It is and it isn't...
The power of gratitude can change anything to work for you.
I don't just mean be thankful for what you have, That's a good start,
Go through the list of people, situations and stuff in your life for which you're grateful.
BUT DON'T STOP THERE!!
Be grateful for everything that is challenging you...
I mean everything!
Don't have enough money? Be grateful and thankful that you are in this exact situation at exactly this time. Plug in whatever your challenge is... relationship, job, health, ect., Why would you want to do that?
You see, I truly believe that the Universe, or however you see your Higher Power, is always working for you. We are not challenged, unless we can grow and benefit from that challenge.
So if you can open yourself up to the possibility that any particular challenge is for your benefit by being just as grateful for it as if someone gave you a million dollars, you'll start to see exactly why you're being challenged and what the next step is,
If you stay in your victim archetype and think: "Why is this happening to me!" You then close your self off to the potential for change and you stay in the challenge until you can see why it it good for you to be there.
So don't be a victim, there's zero power in the victim archetype. Instead, take charge of your life and be a Gratitude Warrior!.
Did you know the brain is the only organ in the body that sculpts itself from outside experience?
Every time we learn something new, our brain changes. In a sense our experience becomes biology. This is called Neuroplasticity. Our brains are constantly renewing themselves.
A brain cell is also known as a neuron.
Dendrites are the fibers that grow out of the neurons when you learn.
Learning = Growth of Dendrites
The bigger the cluster of dendrites grows, the better we are able to understand a subject or able to perform a certain task. As the cluster gets bigger the connections between each dendrite will get faster and faster. This is called firing. As this neuron cluster gets bigger, and the dendrite firing becomes faster, you are well on your way to changing how your brain works and achieving a Growth Mindset!
There are 2 ways to make your brain grow new dendrites and neuron clusters.
a. Through the actual experience of doing something.
b. Through imagination.
We can now equate learning to neurons in your brain clustering. The neurons create a neural network related to what you are trying to learn. The larger the neural cluster, the more you are a Master of the topic, activity, skill. One of the best ways to make those neurons cluster is to connect something we are trying to learn to something we already know.
We then encourage those neural networks to grow faster. New dendrites are connected to an established cluster of neurons from a known behavior.
We will now incorporate the ancient Chinese practice of Qigong, as our aide.
In most of the Qigong exercises we will be doing, the breath, not the muscles, is what we want to imagine, is moving our body.
As we inhale, it’s as if when we’re drawing in the breath through our nose, we’re bringing the body with us. If we are rotating our bodies from the waist up, as we inhale, we move our bodies in one direction simultaneously with that breath. When we exhale, and the breath pushes out of our mouth, it also seems to push our body in the opposing rotation.
If we think about moving, we wil usually tighten our muscles. We instead want to keep them supple during Qigong, so the Qi (energy) can more easily flow through our body.
Therefore, if we imagine our breath doing the work, we get out of our muscles, while breathing deeper and connecting breath and movement as one.
Pretend you have a magic beach ball.
Hold it about 18 inches in front of your chest. It’s about the size of a soccer ball.
Now inhale while counting to 6 and open your arms out as if the beach ball is inflating. You’re still holding it, but not too tight.
Then exhale while counting to 8 and the ball goes back to soccer ball size.
Let go of the idea your muscles are moving you.
Imagine, instead, that your breath is moving you.
Repeat for two minutes.
How do you feel? You just changed your breath, connected it to movement, visualized a concept, and created some new dendrites in your brain that are connected to you having a good feeling! Cool, huh? This is how you achieve a Growth Mindset, and get unstuck
Our primary work through the Qigongs in this guide, is to use the breath as the engine to move our bodies through space, rather than our muscles.
But we'll also begin to visualize, or imagine that we are creating images, colors and structures. In the first step, we learned that we can create new dendrite clusters with our imagination. So by coming to this practice each day with the mind of a child, we can exercise our imagination and increase our ability to create neuroplasticity in our brains. As we perform these daily Qigongs, don't leave out the visualizations. They are every bit as important as the movements and the breath work.
Tomorrow we'll do steps 3 & 4
I like to imagine myself immersed in water when practicing my Qigong.
This slows my movement and brings awareness to the subtleties of joint rotations, energy and blood flow through my body, all while increasing the oxygen in every cell.
When performing this practice, it’s important that every movement is not only initiated by the breath, as in step 2, but also has a visualization.
In step 2 we had the magic beach ball that expanded and contracted.
As you practice a less formal Qigong, say brushing your hair, you can visualize combing out stagnation, seeing it as sludge or dirt, and getting rid of it.
The movement doesn’t need to be a formal Qigong or anything special, it could be as simple as walking down the street!
Move as if you're in water and synchronize your movement with your breath.
Count at first if it helps you slow down and lengthen your breath. Count to 5 or 6 on the inhales and exhales. Maybe take 4 steps per breath. Find a rhythm that is relaxing and flows for you. Enjoy it, smile! We want to create positive action dendrites, and replace the stressed out clusters that aren’t helping us,
Let’s look at that self talk you have. You know, where you beat yourself up,
“Why did you do it that way, stupid!” or something like that. Somewhere in your life. Someone you trusted said something negative about you and you took it to heart. Negativity bias is real.
Negativity bias, also known as the negativity effect, is the notion that, even when of equal intensity, things of a more negative nature have a greater effect on one's psychological state and processes than neutral or positive things.
This isn’t serving you. It’s time to lose it and replace it with something that supports you and your dreams! So as you’re walking, like in step 3, or expanding and contracting the ball, as in step 1, tell yourself:
“I can do anything I decide to, and I can do it well.”
Do it with your new breath, a warm smile and your new relaxed immersed-in-water movement.
Enjoy this, make it fun! We’re changing your brain to work for you instead of against you!

One definition of Manifestation is: an indication of the existence or presence or nature of some person or thing.
Another is: an unveiling.
One more is: a clear appearance.
So when I talk about manifesting your most optimum, authentic Life, it’s not so much that we are creating our true authentic life path, but bringing into view what was already there, dissipating the veil of illusion.
We all have the potential to live our dream life, to live the way we were born to live.
Mostly, we block our potential with other people’s conditioning.
We live for others' approval.
We do what we think we’re supposed to do.
We survive, instead of thrive.
This "Dream Life" potential already exists within us, we only have to claim it and believe it’s there…
and then LIVE IT!!
These simple exercises stimulate your imagination to create the neural networks necessary to bring your dreams into reality. you cultivate new dendrites and realize your dream-life is already present and you only have to unveil it.
Now you have a blueprint to achieve a Growth Mindset!
While this 5 step course is a powerful tool to help you change your life, you may want even more: to go deeper and root out old conditioning and become the magnificent person that you were born to experience.
I created a 15 Module video course you can play over and over to get everything out of it you can.
