Environmental Healing and Healing the Environment
An Interview with Qigong Master Qinyin
by John Chen
John: What do you mean by "environmental healing"?
Qigong Master Qinyin: A good environment with clear energy is itself a healing. Do you have this kind of experience - when you go to nature, such as mountain or beach, you feel energetic all day long, but you may feel tired at other places at being there for just a short while? This is because the energy flows between the human being and the environment.
John: Yes. How about "healing
John: Your ideas about the interaction between humanity and the environment are very interesting. When did you start your research in this area?
Qigong Master: I started paying attention to energy when I learned meditation from my maternal grandmother as a little kid. In university, I majored in Eastern Philosophy, which speaks of the union between the human being and the universe. Through dedicated Qigong practice, ancient Daoists found out that the human body is intimately intertwined with the universe. Everything that happens in the universe, for example, the explosion of a star, can affect our well-being. As a product of the universe, the human body already has built-in structures, such as meridians and energy channels, corresponding to the universe. Later, I went to many Temples and holy mountains in China to learn how to harness this man-universe relation for our health through Qigong, healing and Fengshui adjustments.
John: How important is the environment or Fengshui for our health exactly?
Qigong Master: Once you set up a good Fengshui at your home, it can benefit you for the rest of your life. Every time when you come back home tired, you can automatically recharge yourself. I always encourage my Qigong students and clients to improve their Fengshui at home while they practice Qigong. Qigong students who listen make bigger and more permanent progress in their health and energy level. I have been to many homes to do Fengshui consultation. Most homes in America, even very expensive homes, have a lot of Fengshui problems. For example, I went to see the Fengshui of a million-dollar house in the bay area. This house has a very good view. Furniture and even Five Elements seemed to be fine. But good Fengshui ultimately depends on a good energy field. I saw the energy looked brown and upsetting coming from the underground of one room. I sensed that there were negative spiritual signals underneath, which was confirmed by the hosts. It turns out that that house's previous owner had chained a monkey in that room, who died there in anger. Through addressing this root cause, the good Fengshui of this house became a reality.
John: What are the typical Fengshui problems in American houses?
Qigong Master: A place with good Fengshui should meet the following conditions, (1) A harmonious collection of universal energy signals, such as the completeness and balance of the Five Elements; (2) Energy field in the house, including underground, the neighborhood, people and pet in the house, even previous owners. (3) Furniture's spiritual energy properties and furniture placement. (4) Yin-Yang balance should compliment homeowners' health characteristics. (5) The absence of old, stagnant and disease energy. (6) The absence of negative spiritual signals.
John: How do you help people correct Fengshui problems?
Qigong Master: I do Fengshui consultation more by intuition and spiritual guidance instead of textbook prescriptions. For example, someone may be very attached to an old piece of furniture for an emotional reason, but I can see its aura is not good, and it maybe even carry old, unhappy disease signals. To keep the energy fresh, ideally you should set up a universal energy receiver at your home so that new energy can circulate and replace stagnant energy continuously. Often, the use of an energized object (initiated by a high-level master) is very helpful. Also, knowing the energy dynamics and shortcoming of your house is the first step towards reparation and improvement. Usually there are many rooms and details that you can make improvements to. Finally, there is abundant energy in the universe, which can be accessed systematically through the ancient Chinese healing art Qigong. If you practice Qigong at your home regularly, you can also gradually raise the energy level of your house. In short, the essence of Fengshui is a harmonious integration of the Heaven, the Earth and the human being.
John: If I have to go to low energy places, how can I protect myself?
Qigong Master: This is what we call "mobile Fengshui", including driving cars and staying somewhere temporarily. To achieve good mobile Fengshui, you can practice Qigong to strengthen your own positive energy. Additionally, I recommend that my Qigong students carry "energized objects", such as bracelets, amulets, and necklaces that I have infused universal energy into. After initiation, these energized objects acquired spiritual aura that can achieve the amazing effects of disconnecting negative energy. My favorite is to play a spiritual music CD in my car if I have to drive through a big city. Energy signals broadcast from an energized CD can help a lot. Similarly, I also channel universal energy into Yin-Yang Healing Tea to help people get energy quickly and to balance Yin and Yang.
