Welcome to a New
Chi Kung or 
Qi Gong
of Light and Love

       Both Tai chi and Chi Kung are energy exercises. Tai chi or Tai Chi Chuan is usually done in a series, sequence or form with the feet moving in various places; whereas, Chi Kung or Qi gong is usually done standing in one place. Both are "energy exercises", or exercises for improving the energy flow in the body, meridians, and chakras or energy centers. Chi Kung is generally easier to learn and may be a good place to start, so this page will emphasize the practice of Chi Kung.  

Some of the concepts of this Chi Kung are:

Introduction 
Understanding Chi Kung

       Chi is energy -- the energy of life. It is vital energy, life energy, or electronic energy. It is light and love. Chi kung may be considered the way of energy, the mastery of energy, or the practice of energy flow. Chi Kung can help increase the flow of light or energy in our chakras or energy centers.

       This is Heart-Centered Chi Kung, in which we may be centered in our hearts -- our heart chakra of divine love. Divine light and love are the best chi, the best energy, and the best protection.

       This way of energy flow, or practice of energy flow, has four main parts:


1. Relaxation-Meditation, that is, stilling the intellectual mind and the body by sitting down, lying down, or standing still,


2. Conscious Breathing or Breathing with Awareness, and Breathing Exercises, 


3. Stretches, Neck Exercises, and Back Exercises, and


4. Simplified Sets of Chi Kung Exercises

     More and more we can also have meditation through movement, and joy and energy through movement. Having a better flow, and having more energy to do so, are two of the goals or benefits of Chi Kung.

     This four part practice is one of the most important practices we can do; especially in this computer and office age, to get some balance in our lives. 


***************************


Smile and Be Happy
Smile, Laugh, and Have Fun

       Smiling and being happy are two of the best ways to promote good energy flow, and to promote health, happiness, and higher consciousness.

We can affirm: I AM smiling, and I AM happy.

       Smiling helps to activate the thymus gland, which promotes good energy flow in the body. Smiling and being happy are two of the most important things we can do, and are important principles in Tai Chi. The goal is to have a "Happy Heart" with good energy flow. A Happy Heart is achieved by right living and being a helpful heart.

We can affirm:

I am happy heart.

I am a happy person.

I AM well, I AM happy, I AM whole.


     True Chi Kung can be a path of joy, happiness, and fun.

       Smile and the world smiles with us; laugh and the world laughs with us.

       "Joy is the motor of life." (Saint Germain) 

       True Tai chi is also about light and love -- becoming the light and love of the world.

******************************

One Meaning of a S.M.I.L.E.

       One meaning of the word "SMILE," is "Sending MInfinite Love Everywhere," so we can affirm:

       I AM a beautiful smile, and I AM Sending My Infinite Love Everywhere.

   Our Motto is: "Service with a SMILE." 


My Personal Story by William Star

       In 1970, I, William Star, started practicing Tai Chi Chuan, that is, a series or sequence of Tai Chi movements, usually called a "form". I learned a "short form" of 64 movements. I practiced this on a somewhat regular basis for about 29 years. I tried to teach a class around 1995, but the class did not go very far because learning the exercises was too challenging for most people.

       In 1999 I received a book called Tai Chi Chih, that is, single, individual Tai chi exercises, generally standing in one place.  I started practicing and developed something that is generally better than what is in the book, and I present it to you below. Moreover, I learned that Chi Kung or Qi gong is single, individual energy exercises or sets of exercises generally done standing in one place.

       So this Chi Kung is easier for most people to learn than Tai Chi or Tai Chi Chuan as generally taught. Generally speaking, it takes a lot less time to learn.

       I consider these exercises a gift for a lifetime, and a gift to extend our lifetime.

       These exercises are also healing exercises that can help to heal almost anything that needs healing in our bodies, and can help us to be better healers.

*****************************

The Benefits of the Practice

of Chi Kung

       These Chi kung exercises are relatively easy, enjoyable, energizing, and effective. They are also enlightening. They are especially effective, because in many cases the breathing is coordinated with the movement, and that is when exercises are generally the most effective, and we get the most benefit for our efforts. The exercises are relaxing, rejuvenating, regenerating, and resurrecting to the body.

       They can actually help us to have more energy and feel better.

       These exercises can help to develop a greater internal and external strength and flexibility of our bodies and minds. These exercises can help slow down or even reverse the aging process, and help us to become younger and stronger. These exercises can help us to look better, feel better, and have more energy.

       More specifically , these exercises can help us to:
1. look better, feel better, and sleep better
2. have more energy, endurance or stamina; that is, the ability of the muscles or body to have sustained energy or long term energy.
3. have more flexibility,
4. have more strength, 
5. have better muscle tone; that is, the ability of the muscles to contract and relax easily, and decrease or eliminate cramps, 
6. have better health and help overcome almost any or health problem or health challenge,
7. slow down or reverse the aging process, help us to become an eternal youth,
8. relax and rejuvenate our bodies, 
9. develop more beautiful bodies,
10. help heal, adjust, align, and correct the neck and back; and help decrease or relieve any pain that might be in the neck, back, and shoulders
11. have a greater harmony, flow, and peace in our lives,
12. help develop better habits and overcome any bad habits.
In simple terms, these exercises can help us to become healthier and happier.

I, William Star, have learned that if we want to extend our lives, and to slow down and possibly reverse the aging process, then we need to realize that exercise is generally a very important factor, and some of the best exercises we can do are these Chi Kung exercises, and also the yoga that I teach.

Note: Any part of this teaching may be printed by highlighting the part we want and then printing it out. 


Have More Time and Energy

       It is important to note that with a certain mastery of these exercises, we will have more energy, feel better, and have more time for ourselves during the day. For example, if we practice 20 minutes a day, we may have 40 minutes more energy each day and/or need 40 minutes less sleep, so hopefully this will encourage us to practice regularly because we will truly gain or benefit by the practice. Therefore, there is no more excuse not to exercise, so let us be up and doing -- doing our practice.


The Advantages of Practicing this Chi Kung
over most other types of Exercises

       One of the good things about this Chi Kung is that it can be done in regular clothes -- our work clothes or street clothes. Also, we do not need any equipment or mat, so it can be done almost anywhere -- inside, or outside in a gentle sun, in parks, in the mountains, etc. It can be done at home, or at work while on breaks. Even while we are working, we can take a two to four minute break, relax, meditate, and do some breathing exercises. These simple practices, can make a major improvement in our energy level and ability to do our work. 
       This Chi Kung requires only a small amount of sitting space and/or standing space, a little more than arms length. And even if we just have two to four minutes, we can do something, especially breathing exercises.

Part of My Experience

and Teaching by William Star

        I have taught a weekly class at Laguna Creek Tennis and Racquet Club, a weekly class at McIntosh Computers, a monthly class at the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op, and two specialty classes for California Family Fitness. I have also taught in Livingston, Montana at the Adult Community Education program. I have taught a number of classes in Mt Shasta, California. 

       Here is one testimonial from one of my students at Laguna Creek Tennis and Racquet Club exactly as she sent it to me in an email: 


       "JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT WE ENJOY YOUR TAI CHI CLASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT IS SO PEACEFUL AND RELAXING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LAGUNA TENNIS AND RACQUET CLUB MEMBER, MARIA"



May the Flow Be With Us!
May We Be in the River of Life 


Be still like the mountain and flow like a great river.   (Lao Tze)


Four Part Foundational Chi Kung, Plus More
for Beginners to Advanced

This Class is a 4X4 Master Matrix or Format
4 Main Parts to the Class 
that can be done in about 8 minutes each.

*****************************************


Part 1. Relaxation-Meditation 

There are four basic positions for meditation, which are:

1. in a chair, preferably with arms, 

2. sitting on a mat, blanket, sleeping bag on the floor, or on a bed with the legs straight out, possibly with the back against the wall,

 3. in one of the four, cross-legged, sitting positions or postures that are explained below; or

4. standing.


The Four Crossed-Legged Sitting Postures are: 

1. the simple crossed-legged posture, 

2. the perfect posture -- with the legs crossed and with one foot between the opposite calf muscle and thigh muscle, 

3. the half lotus -- with the legs crossed and with one foot on the opposite thigh, and 

4. the full lotus -- with the legs crossed and with both feet on the opposite thighs. 

Simply let go, let ourselves be, let the energy flow, and find that peace within.

Note: If needed, we may use a pillow, cushion, pad, or a folded blanket under the buttocks to help us to be more comfortable and to sit for a longer time. If we simply practice sitting in one of these crossed-legged postures each day, especially with a pillow, cushion, or pad, we can learn to be comfortable and relaxed in one or more of these sitting postures. 

        Before we begin meditation, it is wise to begin with a prayer for divine help, and a prayer for divine direction and protection, somewhat similar to this: 
O God help me (help us) during this meditation. O God give me (give us) your divine direction and protection.

       Just relax for about 4 or more minutes -- 1, 2, or 3 times a day and gradually, meditation will come.

       Also, before doing these exercises, we may call forth the tube of light around us and the violet transmuting flame. We can simply say: 

I AM calling forth the tube of light around me now, and the violet fire within that tube of light.

 
(We may repeat this 4 or more times. We may visualize a tube of white light around us that is about twelve feet in diameter, and the violet flame within that tube of light.) 

Then we may say: 

I AM a being of violet fire,

I AM the purity God desires.


(4X, that is, 4 or more times or repetitions)


An Understanding

of Relaxation-Meditation

       It is good to still all outer activity of the intellectual mind and the body, that is, to have a sitting relaxation-meditation each day. It is good to have a quiet meditation and/or a spiritual or classical music meditation for about 4 to 20 minutes each day, preferably two or three times a day. We can sit in a chair, preferably with arms, or sit in one of the four crossed-legged postures that are explained above. The ideal is to sit in a good posture, still the intellectual mind and the body, and just relax -- let go and the energy flow. Let the Higher Mind come through, the creative, inspirational, or intuitive mind.

       It is important to understand that as long as we have our eyes open, we tend to be in our rational, thinking, or intellectual mind. When we close our eyes and relax, we tend to be in our Higher Mind, the Mind of God or the Mind of Christ -- that intuitive, creative, or inspirational mind. This mind is also the Selective and Discriminative Intelligence.

       During meditation, the ideal is to go into a state of "listening grace." During this state, we may hear the "Inner Voice" or receive wonderful inspiration. We may feel the Presence of God within us. We may also see beautiful visions or pictures. We may hear beautiful music -- the music of the spheres. We may even smell beautiful fragrances -- heavenly fragrances.

       It is generally good to meditate about 4 to 20 minutes each day, even two or three times a day. We may visualize ourselves in white light, and our heart as a golden sphere or pink sphere. 

It is also good for us to be aware of the breathing and to do some breathing exercises.

       We can repeat affirmations, meditate or contemplate on any thing we wish, visualize beautiful scenes or pictures, or listen to the Inner Voice.

       Listening to the heartbeat or being aware of the heartbeat may be a beneficial practice during meditation and may strengthen the heart and improve the energy flow in the body.

       To listen to the heartbeat, we may lie down or sit up and place the tips of the fingers of one hand or both hands over the heart. We may gradually become aware of the heartbeat, and enjoy being aware of the heartbeat. We may also place our fingertips on our pulse near the wrist.

       If we like, we may do an affirmation, such as, "I AM all Light, I AM all Love," to the beat of the heart.

       See the link, which follows, for more teaching on meditation. 
More on Meditation


Awareness of the Heartbeat

       Practicing awareness of the heartbeat can be useful in strengthening the heart and helping the body to relax and helping to improve our energy level. It may be best to start practicing while lying down and placing the hands over the heart.

Part 2. Conscious Breathing 
or Breathing With Awareness 

and Four-Part Breathing Exercises

Introduction

       Breathing exercises, can help us to have more energy, better health, look and feel better, and be more relaxed. Breathing exercises may also help us to have a better control of our emotions, and have more joy and happiness.

       Chi is vital energy or life energy. It is the energy of God or the Holy Spirit. It is the energy of light, love and life. It is also called prana in yoga.

        These breathing exercises are part of the scientific art of mastering the breath. It is especially important for those who have little energy and who want to improve their energy level.

Affirmations we way use to help us breathe better: 
I am able to breathe perfectly and normally.
I AM the perfectly controlled breath of my body.
I AM the pure atmosphere of every breath I breathe. (from the "I AM" Discourses)
I AM able to learn and to do these breathing exercises.

       These breathing exercises may be done sitting down, lying down, or standing in one place. It may be helpful to place one or both hands on the belly, while doing the exercise, especially if we are lying down. Or we may place one hand on the belly and one hand on the solar plexus or heart area.

    Breathing exercises can increase our energy, help us to look and feel better, help improve our health, and help us to maintain our harmony.

      During the day it is good to take "breathing breaks". This can be done at home or at the office, or at work almost anywhere. This simple practice of "breathing breaks" can be a major improvement in our lives.

       These breathing exercises, at least parts of them, are relatively easy, enjoyable, energizing, and effective; and almost anyone can do them.

       Before starting these breathing exercises, it may be good to just relax and be aware of our breathing or to have 1 to 4 minutes, or more. of relaxation-meditation.

       More and more breathing exercises can become a "spiritual practice", in which we can experience the Holy Spirit -- the Holy Breath -- where we can experience God's light, life and love -- where we can experience the "electronic energy" or divine energy of God.

       For me, William Star, these breathing exercises are a gift of The Holy Spirit -- The Holy Breath or The Holy Comforter.

       If we want to make the best progress, it is generally best that we do the breathing exercises one to four times a day, and four or more times a week.


Conscious Breathing, 
Breathing with Awareness,
or Observing our Breath

       Breathing with awareness or observing our breathing helps to slow down the breathing, deepen the breathing, and helps to heal and rejuvenate the body.

       One or both hands may be placed on the belly, or one hand on the belly and one hand on the chest or over the heart. As we gradually breathe in, the belly should expand, and as we gradually breathe out, the belly should contract. This is proper, good, normal breathing. If we do not breathe like this, we can gradually retrain the breathing. Many people do not breathe "normally", and therefore need "retraining" of the breathing to breathe normally, or to have more effective and natural breathing.

       Breathing with awareness may be done sitting down, lying down, or standing up; putting one or both hands on the belly; or one hand on the belly and one hand on the chest or over the heart.

       Breathing with awareness is a most important first step for energizing the body, slowing down the breathing, and helping us to relax. Breathing with awareness or conscious breathing can help us to breathe deeper and fill the lungs more completely. Conscious breathing may help to give us a greater mastery in all areas and help us to have a greater harmony.

       Breathing with awareness may help us to have more energy or fire of the Holy Spirit. It is an important practice, and can be done as often as we like or want.

Practice: A good general rule is to sit or lie down in a good relaxed posture, with the back relatively straight and comfortable. Let our intellectual mind relax and be conscious of our breathing, or breathe with awareness, as long as we want. We can practice this at least twice a day in the beginning, once in the morning and once in the evening, and then gradually include additional times when we practice during the day, such as, at times when we take a break. During our practice, we can be aware of the movements of our belly, we can be aware of the air flowing in and out through your nose, etc. 

What would we do without our breath? Ignored by most of us, it is essential to our life, and paying attention to how we breathe can upgrade our quality of living. Have you noticed when you step outdoors on a brisk, winter day that your lungs are eager to draw in the oxygen of fresh, invigorating air? Your breaths are deep and long. You fill your lungs to capacity. You are replenished and re-vitalized. Assuredly, deep breathing calms the body and harmonizes the thoughts. Shallow breathing on the other hand––an effect of a busy life, negative emotional states, spending more time indoors and exercising less––reduces our vitality because we are not taking in enough oxygen and not eliminating enough carbon dioxide.


Note: The three paragraphs below were copied from the Hearts Center website forum. 

Breathing, for most people, is an involuntary function of the body. For you, however, it can be a conscious act. You can become skillful at consciously controlling your inhalation and exhalation, coordinating them with the movements .... Learn to breathe more efficiently and you will feel more relaxed and have less pain. You can even reduce the workload on your heart, thus lowering blood pressure.

Philosophically, consider the rhythmic inhale and exhale as opportunities to let go of the “old and stale” in your life (that which no longer benefits or serves you) and to draw in the “new and fresh” (that which re-energizes and nurtures your spirit).

So what is the golden key to your health? Your breath. It has always been there, right under your nose.

Note: Relaxation may be a breath away. 

"Listening" to the Breath

       We can "listen" to our breath by placing our palms over our ears, and place the fingers behind the neck or head. We can sit at a table, rest our elbows on the table, and place our palms over our ears. Or we can lie down with the palms over the ears, and with the fingers behind the neck or head, and the elbows up in the air. Or we can use earplugs to shut out some of the sound. Then we can relax. listen to our breath, and become more aware of our breathing. This practice can help us to deepen our breathing, and help us to breathe better.

       "Listening" to our breath can further enhance the awareness of our breath.

       May be done sitting down; preferably, with the elbows resting on a table; or lying down, which generally works best.

***************************

A Four-Part Foundational Breathing Exercise


The Complete Breath --

The Four-Level Complete Breath

May be done sitting down, lying down, or standing up. 

In the beginning, doing one or two parts of these breathing exercises may be plenty for our bodies. 

We can practice "Part 1" a number of times, and then go on to part 2, and so on. 

Or we can take a "step-ladder approach", and do each part one time -- two, three, or four parts -- whatever works best for each of us. 

The more we practice these breathing exercises, the more comfortable and confident we will feel. They will generally become easier and more enjoyable and more effective. 

Level 1:

Belly Breathing, or
Deep, Diaphragmatic Breathing, or 
One-Level Breathing,

       Gradually breathe in, expanding the belly, and then gradually breathe out, contracting the belly. 

Note: Belly breathing or deep diaphragmatic breathing is simple, good breathing and should be natural to all. In belly breathing we gradually breathe in and expand the belly and the air flows in through the nose, and then we gradually breathe out and contract the belly, and the air gradually flows out through the nose or the mouth. The air can flow out through the nose, or we can "purse" the lips like we were going to do a soft whistle, and blow the air out through the mouth. Blowing the air out through the mouth can help extend the breath and help cleanse the lungs.


Level 2:

Belly and Chest Breathing, or

Two-Level Breathing

Gradually breathe in and expand the belly and chest, and then gradually breathe out, contracting the chest and the belly.


Level 3:

Belly, Chest, and Upper Chest Breathing, 
or Three-Level Breathing

Gradually breathe in, expanding the belly and chest, and lifting the shoulders a little, and then gradually breathe out, lowering the shoulders, contracting the chest and belly.


Level 4:

Belly, Chest, Upper Chest Breathing, with the Head Tilted Back, or
Four-Level Breathing

Gradually breathe in, expanding the belly and chest, lifting the shoulders a little, and tilting the head back. Then gradually breathe out, tilting the head forward, lowering the shoulders, contracting the chest and belly.

Note: Doing one or two of the parts above may be plenty in the beginning. Do only what is reasonable for the body.

Note: Each of the four levels of this breathing exercise may be repeated as desired. We may gradually strive for 4 or more repetitions. 

Generally speaking, we breathe in through the nose and either, out through the nose or out through the mouth. If we breathe out through the mouth, we generally purse the lips and blow out with a gentle soft whistle. Blowing out through the mouth acts as a gentle cleansing breath. 

During the day it is good to take "breathing breaks". This can be done at home or at the office, or at work, or almost anywhere. This simple practice of "breathing breaks" can be a major improvement in our lives, and a major help to have energy at the end of the day. 

**********************************

Standing, Two-Hand, Double-Good, Four-Level Breathing Exercises 


May be done standing, and to some extent, sitting, or lying down. 

       Each of the following breathing exercises is "double good" because they are both a good breathing exercise and a good physical exercise, and we get the benefits of both a breathing exercise and a physical exercise. All of these breathing exercises have four levels. These breathing exercises are generally done standing, but to a great extent, they may also be done sitting down or lying down. It may be good to start with one or two parts of the breathing exercise, and then go on from there.

       Generally speaking, we breathe in through the nose and either, out through the nose or out through the mouth. If we breathe out through the mouth, we generally purse the lips and blow out with a gentle soft whistle. Blowing out through the mouth acts as a gentle cleansing breath and may help extend the breath.

Important Note: Since there is only a verbal explanation of most of these breathing exercises, you may or may not understand how to do them. If you do not understand how to do them, you may take your best guess, or just skip over the ones you don't understand. Maybe, if and when you come back to them, you may understand them. 

       One day I hope to have still pictures with "arrow movements", which will help somewhat. Moreover, I hope to have videos of these "two-hand, double-good, four-level breathing exercises as soon as I can on this website, and/or links to them on "You Tube".

Guideline: Four or more repetitions in one day, for four or more times a week. 

       We may pick the ones we like, or like best, or that work best for us.


In the beginning, doing one or two levels of these breathing exercises may be plenty for our bodies. 

We can practice "Level 1" one to four times, or more, and then go on to Level 2, and so on. 

The more we practice these breathing exercises, the more comfortable and confident we will feel. They will generally become easier and more enjoyable and more effective. 

Generally know that:
Hands moving up, belly moving out, body breathing in;
hands moving down, belly moving in, body breathing out.

Level 1: Gradually raise the hands to the top of the belly, and face the palms to the belly, while breathing in, and then gradually lower the hands to the sides while breathing out. 
Note: This step may be repeated 1 to 4 times, or more. If we so choose, we may go on to Level 2, Level 3, and Level 4. 

Level 2: Gradually raise the hands to the chest or heart level while breathing in, and then gradually lower the hands to the sides while breathing out.

Level 3: Gradually raise the hands to the shoulder level (with palms somewhat down) while breathing in, and then gradually lower the hands to the sides while breathing out.

Level 4: Gradually raise the hands above the head (with palms facing up) and tilt the head back while breathing in, and then gradually lower the hands to the sides while breathing out.
Repeat as desired.

Note: We may gradually include knee-bends.

As the hands are lowered, the knees may bend; and as the hands are raised, the knees may straighten. These "knee bends" can be an important addition to this "double good" breathing exercise. 

Testimonials for the breathing exercise above: 

First email: "i started doing the hand and breath exercise and by the time i am done with it my mind is very clear."

you (William Star) look great in all the photos!

i love you and God loves you too, cindy"

Second email: "i am writing to tell you again how much i like the two-hand, double-good breathing... i love it. keeps me in my heart! Cindy"

Note: These emails are exactly as Cindy sent them to me, with the "i" not capitalized, etc. . 

***************************************

Part 3. Stretches and Neck and Back Exercises

Preliminary: Conscious or Creative Stretching

 Do-It-Ourself Stretching, or Creative Stretching, that can also be or become a Creative or Free Form Tai Chi Flow.

       Just move the body or stretch the body in any proper way that it wants to move or stretch. Be creative, and the body will may move and/or stretch better and better if we practice on a regular basis, that is, at least three times a week.

       These "stretches" may gradually become beautiful flowing movements, that can be called a "Free Form Tai Chi", or "Free-Flowing Tai Chi", "Holy Spirit Tai Chi".

Affirmations of the Holy Spirit Flow or the Cosmic Mother Flow: 
As above, so below, I AM that Holy Spirit Flow (or Cosmic Mother Flow).

So below, as above, I AM that Holy Spirit Love (or Cosmic Mother Love). 
I AM flowing, growing, and glowing in His (Her) Love. 

Note: This "Holy Spirit Flow" or "Cosmic Mother Flow" may be done to beautiful music, especially, to waltz music. I, William Star, find that when I do this "flow" to waltz music, it enhances the flow, and I can flow longer and better.

Another Important Note: In all the exercises or movements in this Tai chi Chi kung, we can be creative and change the movement in any way we like. Or, if you are not sure how to do a movement, just take your best guess, and do anything that you might think is close, or that works or flows for you. 

Extended Hand and Arm Stretches
In front of the body

1. Extend or stretch two hands to the front of the body about shoulder level.
2. Extend or stretch one hand to the front of the body about shoulder level.

3. Extend or stretch the other hand to the front of the body about shoulder level.

4. Extend or stretch alternating hands to the front of the body about shoulder level.

Neck Exercises --

Four Basic Exercises or Movements 

   Neck Exercises -- Four Basic Exercises or Movements 

          These exercises are a do-it-ourself neck adjustment, alignment, and potential correction of any injuries that may have happened in the past. In fact, while doing the exercises we may hear or sense the adjustment or correction. The exercises help to strengthen and develop flexibility in the neck.     

        Begin by standing in a comfortable position or posture with the feet a comfortable distance apart. It may be helpful to start off very gently or slowly. Be aware of the best distance to spread the feet. In part 1, the feet may be about shoulder width, whereas in parts 2,3, and 4, the feet may be spread a little wider. It may be good to start with the first three neck exercises, and do them for a while, some days or weeks, and then add in the circular exercises. These exercises can be especially helpful in relieving tension and pain in the neck and shoulders, and to some extent in the back. These exercises help to slow down and reverse the aging process. They increase flexibility, and generally improve the functioning of all the organs and systems.

Move the head or neck:
1. Forward and backward, (generally, four or more times),
2. Right-left or sideways,
3. Turning or twisting, and
Note: It may be best to do just the first three movements for some time, then add in the fourth part. 
4. Circular in one or both directions

Note: The neck circles help to grind out the deposits between the vertebrae, and help to make us more flexible and younger. It is important to keep our balance when doing them, and/or to take some time to come back into equilibrium or balance when we stop the movement.

A guideline is to do four or more repetitions for each exercise or movement, or do whatever is reasonable or comfortable for the body. 

Back Exercises --

Four Basic Movements

       These exercises are a do-it-ourself back adjustment, alignment, and potential correction of any injuries that may have happened in the past. They help to strengthen and develop flexibility in the back.    

We may begin by standing in a comfortable posture or position with the feet a comfortable distance apart. It may be helpful to start off very gently or slowly. For all of the back exercises, the hands are generally, not necessarily, placed on the hips. We may try different placement of the hands and see what works best for us. We may do the first three exercises or movements for a while, days or weeks, and then add in the circular movements. The feet may be spread a little more than shoulder width apart. There are at least four variations of each of these back exercises, that is, there are at least four different ways of doing them, and these variations may be discovered by doing the exercises and trying different things or just being creative.  

It may be good to start with the hands on the hips for each of the four basic movements below:

1. Forward and backward, (generally repeat four or more times)

2. Right-left or sideways, 

3. Turning or twisting, and
Note: It may be best to do just the first three movements for some time, then add in the fourth part. 
4. Circular in one or both directions. May do back circles, or may do hip circles or both. 
Note: Instead of back circles, we may start with hip circles, which may be easier to do, then do back circles when we are ready.

Note: Each of the back exercises has at least four variations, so we can do them in various ways. 

Some of the benefits of the neck and back exercises are: 

increased flexibility, better posture, stronger neck and back, better functioning of the organs in the abdominal area, better elimination, etc. Also, there may be a slowing down and even reversal of the aging process. These exercises may help in the relief of pain or tension in the back and the neck.
These neck and back exercises are some of the best exercises for slowing down, and moreover, reversing the aging process.

These exercises are some of the best exercises that we can do; and may be considered our "core exercises". They generally complement and enhance all other exercises. 

More and more the breath can be naturally coordinated with the movement, and enhance the benefits of the movement. Mainly, in the forward and backward movements, the body wants to breathe out when going forward, and breathe in when coming up or back. 

During each movement, it is important to spread the feet a "comfortable distance", whatever works best for the movement, and generally the distance is "shoulder width apart or more". 

***********************************

Guidelines for Practice:

Remember: Four basic movements or exercises, four or more repetitions each, one to four times a day, and four or more times a week. 

Remember: Practice makes perfect. Practice brings progress. The proof is in the practice. 

Generally speaking: a gentle and gradual approach to these exercises is best. 

*****************************************
Optional, Additional Mini-Massages  

Four Basic Mini-Massages

       1. Neck massage, with one or both hands,
       2. Medulla massage at the top of the back of the neck in the crevasse there, with the tips of the fingers of one or both hands,
       3. Ear massage, with appropriate hand to each ear, 
       4. Scalp and head massage.

A Tai Chi Beginning before Doing the Sets Below

I AM flowing, growing, glowing, and bestowing in this love. 

*The Tai Chi is our Father-Mother God or the Yang and the Yin of the Universe.

Part 4. Simplified Sets

of Chi Kung (Qi Gong)

Exercises or Movements


Also called: The Elixir Energizing Exercises

       These exercises are combined into a number of simplified sets, which makes them relatively easy to learn, do, and remember. The sets may be learned in about 1 to 4 minutes. We can start practicing and get immediate benefit. A set takes about 1 to 4 minutes to do, and usually has four parts. The sets may be done in any order we like, and it is perfectly fine to do just one or two parts of the set, if it has three or four parts. 


Preliminary Sets 1 and 2

Complimentary Sets 

Standing Relaxation Meditation

Preliminary Set 1:

Standing, Relaxation-Meditation with the Feet a Comfortable Distance Apart,

About Shoulder Width
With Four Hand Positions

       It is generally good to begin and end all sets with standing relaxation-meditation, with the hands relaxed by the sides and/or the hands at the heart-center (preferably visualizing ourselves standing in the white tube of light around us and the violet transmuting flame within that tube of light).

1st Hand Position: Instead of the hands being relaxed along the sides, they are brought together in front of the heart (the heart-center) with the palms together in the prayer position. 

2nd Hand Position: Then the palms are separated and turned upwards near the heart. 


Complimentary teaching: Come and worship under the Mighty Tree of Life, come and stand under your own vine and fig tree. 

Affirmations that may be used with the Standing-Relaxation Meditation; in particular, when the hands are at the heart:

I AM heart-centered.
I AM centered in my heart.
I AM centered in light and love.
I AM all light, I AM all love. 


Preliminary Set 2:

Standing, Relaxation-Meditation 

with the Heels Together, Toes Apart  


Preliminary Sets 3 and 4

Complimentary Sets 

Smiling and Laughing Chi Kung


Preliminary Set 3:

Smiling Chi Kung

One meaning of the word "SMILE," is "Sending MInfinite Light Everywhere," so we can affirm:

I AM a beautiful smile, and I AM Sending My Infinite Light Everywhere.

I AM a beautiful smile, and I AM Sending My Infinite Love Everywhere.


I AM a smiling sun of God.
I AM the Great Tao smiling in me now.
I AM the Great Tai Chi smiling in you and me. 


       Our Motto is: "Service with a SMILE." 

       Let us go forth with a smile upon our face, 
       And an aura of holy grace.
       Let us go forth in joy and fun,
       One with the sun.

       True Tai Chi / Chi Kung can be a path of joy, happiness, and fun.

       Smile and the world smiles with us.

       Joy is the motor of life. 

       Smiling and being happy are two of the best ways to promote good energy flow, good chi flow, and to promote health, happiness, and higher consciousness.

       We can affirm: I AM smiling, and I AM happy.

       Smiling helps to activate the thymus gland, which promotes good energy flow in the body. Smiling and being happy are two of the most important things we can do, and are important principles in Tai chi. The goal is to have a "happy heart" with good energy flow. A happy heart is achieved by right living and being a helpful heart.

       We can affirm: I am happy heart.

       Also, it is good to affirm:

I AM well, I AM happy, I AM whole.

I am a happy person.

I AM a big and beautiful smile.

       True Tai Chi / Chi Kung can be a path of joy, happiness, and fun.

       Smile and the world smiles with us; laugh and the world laughs with us.


Preliminary Set 4:

Laughing Chi Kung

       Laugh and the world laughs with us.

       Laughter is the best medicine. 

Then we may laugh with "the four good humor sounds" 4 or more times, generally in "alphabetical order", however we may do them in any order with like and in any creative way we like. 

Ha, Ha, Ha, (short "a")
He, He, He, (long "e")
Ho, Ho, Ho, (long "o")
Hu, Hu, Hu. (long "u")

We may laugh and smile in any good way we like.


************************************
Regular Sets or Simplified Sets

       The following regular sets or simplified sets of Chi Kung or Qi Gong exercises are some of the best forms of spiritual-physical exercises. We may do them with joy in our hearts as something really good for ourselves. We may do them in the morning, evening, on weekends, on our breaks or in extra minutes on our lunch hours. We may do them indoors or outdoors. We may do them in "our work clothes" or "street clothes", or in more comfortable clothes. We may start with just one or two sets, or any part of any set. Then we may gradually do more sets as we are comfortably able to do so.

     These exercises can help build in us a greater confidence and self esteem.

       On the average, the time it takes to do about 4 repetitions of a set is about 1 to 4 minutes.

       Furthermore, many of these sets are "breathing exercises", or at least may help us to breathe deeper and better. These sets are generally "double-good"; that is, they are both a good physical exercise and a good breathing exercise in one.
       These exercises will generally give us more energy, that is we will have more energy when finished or we will feel energized, because in many of the exercises the breath is coordinated with the movement. This "coordination" is a master key to why these exercises work so well, and generally give us energy.

Remember:

Practice makes perfect.

Practice brings progress.

The proof is in the practice.   

       The ideal is to gradually coordinate the movement with the breath -- to have unity between the breathing and the movement, or to synchronize the breathing and the movement. Exercises are the most effective and energizing when the breath is coordinated with the movement.

       Learn a set in about 1 to 4 minutes, start practicing, and get immediate benefit.

Note: The first four sets below may be called the "four foundational sets". It may be good to really learn these four sets first, and then go on; however, we may do whatever we like. 


       You may choose any part of any set, and just do that. You surely may pick and choose any sets that you like and just practice them.

 
       Generally speaking, Sets 1 and 2 are complimentary, Sets 3 and 4 are complimentary, Sets 5 and 6 are complimentary; etc., so it is generally best to do these sets in pairs.

Important Note: It is important to understand that we do not have to follow all these parts, steps or stages as given. We can be creative. We can do them in any order. We can make up our own parts, steps or stages. Chi Kung is about flow, what flows, what works for us. Much of this Chi Kung was developed by "experimentation" by "trial and error", and moreover, "trial and success". What you see here is "what works" or is "trial and success" for me, William Star. I am continually learning and being given more and more inspiration or divine revelation regarding this Chi kung / Qi Gong. 

       Again, we may do any of the sets we choose, in any order we choose, or any parts of the sets we choose, and we do not have to do all of the parts, although that is how we would generally get the most benefit. We may do whatever number of repetitions works for our body, although the general guideline is to begin with 1 to 4, then gradually work up to 4 or more.

Complimentary teachings:

       Jesus said: I AM the light of the world. Be ye the light of the world. 

Love is the First Principle of Life and May be Generated to Any Degree

       "God is Love and Love's True Activity comes through the heart. To focus our attention to project Love forth, for any given purpose, is the supreme privilege of who we are, for we can generate Love to a boundless degree. Love is a power, a principle, an Intelligence and a Light, than can be fanned into a boundless flame or fire. We are able to create and generate this Presence of Love. It can be an Invincible, Exhaustless, Peace-commanding Presence, and we may direct it wherever we want.

       Love can be commanded. Love is the First Principle of Life and can be generated to any degree or without any limit whatsoever for our infinite use . This is our majestic privilege in the conscious use and direction of Love."

       By "generate" it is meant the opening of the heart through purity, wholeness, and adoration. The heart of our being is an exhaustless Fountain of Love, and we can generate Love through conscious devotion.

       We may contemplate the Infinite Power of Love, and become exhaustless Fountains of Love in its outpouring . Its conscious direction may be infinite in our use.

       True Chi Kung is all about love -- becoming the light and love of the world. 


Affirmations that may be used:

I AM turning in circles of light and love.

I AM whirling and twirling in circles of light and love.

I AM emanating, radiating light and love to the world. 

I AM the light of the world. I AM the love of the world.

********************************

Note: We may do these sets in "complimentary pairs", such as 1 and 2, 3 and 4, 5 and 6, etc. Or we may pick and choose which sets we want to do and in what order. Also, doing one or two parts of these sets can be plenty in the beginning. 

*******************************

       How often would it be good to practice. First of all, it is a good reminder that practice makes perfect. Practice brings progress. The proof is in the practice. 

       So the question is: How much perfection do we want, or how much progress do we want? Any practice we do will bring some progress. Just doing the breathing exercises "regularly" could bring a significant progress or help.

       What I have found is that if we do a "regular" practice 4 or more times a week, this may bring a significant improvement in our health, and a significant slowing down of the aging process; or even a reversal of the aging process, where our bodies become stronger, healthier, more flexible, and we have more energy.

       Also, doing 4 or more repetitions of each set can really make the difference. 

********************************

An affirmation that may be used after each two complimentary sets is:
I AM a being of violet fire,
I AM the purity God desires. (4 or more times)

 Saint Germain, "I AM Discourses", Vol. 3

The following is a "Beauty Affirmation, Teaching, or Mantra" that may be used with Sets 5 and 6, or may be used anytime.

You shall respond to my command and become radiantly beautiful in every way, in thought, word, feeling, and form. 'I AM' the Fire and Beauty of your eyes, and I carry forth this Radiant Energy into everything into which I look." Thus you can cause to come into appearance the Perfection which will give you all the encouragement you want, to know that " 'I AM' always the Governing Presence."

Then, if we practice the complimentary spiritual teachings and affirmations, then we have one of the greatest forms of spiritual-physical exercises that we can do. 

*****************************************

An affirmation that may be used after each two complimentary sets is:
I AM a being of violet fire,
I AM the purity God desires.(4X)(4 times)

********************************

Note: We may do most of the sets in "complimentary pairs", such as Sets 1 and 2, Sets 3 and 4, Sets 5 and 6, through set 10. Or we may pick and choose which sets we want to do and in what order. Also, doing one or two parts of these sets can be plenty in the beginning. 

********************************

Affirmations:
I AM emanating, radiating light to the world.
I AM the light of the world.
I AM the love of the world.

***********************************

Generally speaking, we breathe in through the nose and either, out through the nose or out through the mouth. If we breathe out through the mouth, we generally purse the lips and blow out with a gentle soft whistle. Blowing out through the mouth acts as a gentle cleansing breath. 

*********************************

       How often would it be good to practice? First of all, it is a good reminder that practice makes perfect. Practice brings progress. So the question is: How much perfection do we want, or how much progress do we want? Any practice we do will bring some progress. Just doing the breathing exercises "regularly" could bring a significant progress or help.

       What I have found is that if we do a "regular" practice of all four major parts; 4 or more times a week, this can bring a significant improvement in our health, and a significant slowing down of the aging process; or even a reversal of the aging process, where our bodies become stronger, more flexible, healthier, and have more energy.

Recommended Ending or Finish for any Session or Class,
no matter how much was done


Ending: Sitting relaxation, or standing relaxation-meditation with the hands along the sides. Review and/or meditate on what was done or accomplished. 


**********************************

Important reminder regarding all sets: These sets may be done in any order that we like. The parts of the sets may be done in any order that we like. Or we may do whatever parts we want. Also, we can be creative and change the sets, the parts and the order as we wish. Tai chi is all about energy flow -- what works for us. These exercises were developed by "flow", what flowed, what works, by trial and error, by trial and success, by experimentation; and through divine inspiration, which we all have or can have. 

**********************************
Note: The exercises above should be done in joy, love, and happiness for health and fitness and spiritual development, but can also be helpful in self defense training. However, generally speaking, being in the consciousness of love is the greatest protection. 

*******************************
Plus More
"Free Form Tai Chi", or "Free-Flowing Tai Chi", or the "Holy Spirit Flow" or "Cosmic Mother Flow."

Tai Chi Dance

       Simply move in free-flowing movements or a free form, especially to beautiful music, such as the various waltzes. Be creative and let go and let the body flow in any appropriate way.

       These movements may gradually become beautiful flowing movements, that can be called a "Free Form Tai Chi", or "Free-Flowing Tai Chi", "Holy Spirit Tai Chi" or the "Cosmic Mother Flow".

Affirmations of the Holy Spirit Flow or the Cosmic Mother Flow: 
       As above, so below, I AM that Holy Spirit Flow (or Cosmic Mother Flow). 
       So below, as above, I AM that Holy Spirit Love (or Cosmic Mother Love). 
       I AM flowing, growing, glowing, and going in His (Her) Love. 

Note: This "Free Form Tai Chi" or "Holy Spirit Flow" or "Cosmic Mother Flow" may be done to beautiful flowing music, especially, waltz music. I, William Star, find that when I do this "flow" to waltz music, it enhances the flow, and I can flow longer and better. Doing this flow to beautiful music becomes a "Tai chi dance".

A link to the Hearts Center teaching on movement by the Elohim Cyclopea will be as time permits. 


A Relaxation-Meditation Walk

       We may take a relaxing, meditative walk out in the fresh air and, hopefully, sunshine. And if we feel lead, we may say, over and over, "How beautiful is everything." Or we may say, "Thank you God, I love you.", or any other beautiful exclamation or saying such as these.

Simplified Tai Chi Chuan

       When most people talk about "Tai Chi," they are really talking about Tai Chi Chuan, that is, a series, sequence, or form of Tai Chi exercises or movements. For most Americans, at least, Tai Chi Chuan is too challenging to learn, or they will simply not take weeks or months to learn it. I teach a simplified Tai Chi Chuan that "the many" can do in the very first class, and can learn in about four to ten classes, and is explained below:


Four Part Opening
       1. Front 

       2. Back

       3. To the right 

       4. To the left


A Simplified Form
4 Movements or Exercises
Note: Each movement may be repeated as many times as we like, generally about two to eight times. 

Beginning: Standing-Relaxation Meditation -- preferably Heart Centered in Divine Love, seeing our heart-center filled with pink light or golden light; and standing in the White Light, a white tube of light, about 9 feet in diameter; or standing in a sphere of white light, or ovoid of white light. 

Opening -- Similar to the standard opening in most forms, although the feet are spread about shoulder width, comfortably apart. Lifting the hands from the sides, generally with palms down, in a beautiful circle, and returning the hands to the sides. Repeat as desired. 

1. The Bow -- The Four Bows -- I Bow to the Life, Light, Love, and Laughter in God and Others. 

2. The Offering -- Hands (Palms) Up and Around, Offering Our Life, Light, Love and Laughter to God in service to God and God's people. 

3. The Asking and Reception -- Hands Circle and Draw Down -- Asking God for His/Her Life, Light, Love, and Laughter -- Drawing Down the Life, Light, Love, and Learning of God to do God's will and work.
Note: When we strive to do God's will and work, then God will give us as much as He/She can. 

4. Opening the Door of the Heart -- I open the door of my heart (and all of my chakras) and I sending out my Light, Love, Life and Laughter to all (who deserve it according to God's will). 

Ending or Closing: Return to Standing-Relaxation Meditation 

Note: This is a "basic form" that may be changed or enhanced in any way we like. 

Approximate time it takes to do this form: Three to five minutes depending on how many times we do each movement, and at what pace we do the movements. 


Another Simplified Form
16 Movements or Exercises
A 4 X 4 Master Matrix
Note: Each movement may be repeated as many times as we like, generally about 4 times. 

Beginning: Standing-Relaxation Meditation -- preferably Heart Centered in Divine Love, seeing our heart-center filled with pink light or golden light; and standing in the White Light, a white tube of light, about 9 feet in diameter; or standing in a sphere of white light, or ovoid of white light. 

Beginning:
Similar to the standard opening in most forms, although the feet are spread about shoulder width, comfortably apart. Lifting the hands from the sides, generally with palms down, in a beautiful circle, and returning the hands to the sides. Repeat as desired. 

Then we move into a Left Forward Stance or Right Forward Stance, one or the other for the complete form, 

Note: The left forward stance has the left foot forward, and the right foot to the rear at a 45% angle, and vice versa for the right forward stance. 

Then we may do:

Part 1 or Level 1:

1. Vertical, Front to Back, Circles:
Vertical, Front to Back, Inner Circles: Circle both hands, palms facing each other in front of the heart. Inner circles are done by moving the hands down from the heart, downward, outward, and upward and back over to the heart. 

2. Then do Vertical, Front to Back, Outer Circles:
Outer circles are done by moving the hands up from the heart and outward and downward and back up to the heart. Repeat as desired. Then we do: 

3. Sending and Receiving with Two Hands, or Push-Pull with Two Hands: 
Palms facing out. Repeat as desired. Then we do: 

4. Sending and Receiving with the Same Hand, or Push-Pull with One Hand:
Use the right hand as the main hand when in the left forward stance, and use the left hand as the main hand when in the right forward stance. Repeat as desired. Then we do:

Part 2 or Level 2:

       1. With Vertical, Alternating, Side-to-Side, Inner Hand and Arm Circles,

       2. With Vertical, Alternating, Side-to-Side, Outer Hand and Arm Circles,

       2. Horizontal or Side-to-Side, Hand and Arm, Outer Movements

       3. Horizontal or Side-to-Side, Forearm, Inner Movements

       4. Horizontal or Side-to-Side Forearm, Outer Movements

Part 4 or Level 4:

       1. Horizontal Hand Circles: with the palms facing down, move the hands in circles, in front of the body with the circles being at approximately at the navel or belly level.

       2. Horizontal Hand Circles: with the palms facing up, move the hands in circles, in front of the body with the circles being at approximately at the navel or belly level.

       3. Rotating Hand Circles: Horizontal Hand Circles: with the palms facing down.

       4. Rotating Hand Circles: Horizontal Hand Circles: with the palms facing up.

Ending or Closing: Return to Standing-Relaxation Meditation 

Note: This is a "basic form" that may be changed or enhanced in any way we like. 

Approximate time it takes to do this form: 8 to 16 minutes depending on how many times we repeat each movement, and at what pace we do the movements. 

Remember: Practice Makes Perfect. Practice Brings Progress.

Guidelines for the Practice

of Tai Chi / Chi Kung

       A regular practice is important if we are to make good progress. The more we practice, the more we make progress. Whatever practice we do on a regular basis, we will generally get better and stronger for those particular exercises.

       The ideal is to strive to have a regular time that we practice. We can ask ourselves what is best for us, and try to find a regular time and stick to it as much as possible.

       Also, the ideal is to wear some comfortable loose clothing, preferably without a belt, but this tai chi can be done in regular street clothing or most work clothes, as explained above, and that is one of its advantages. It can easily be done inside or outside, in parks, in the mountains, at rest stops when we are traveling, etc. Also, we can take Tai Chi / Chi Kung breaks at work, and this can make a big difference in our work, and how we feel at the end of the day.

       Here are the Four G's of Practice: 

1. Gentleness - start gently and easily, have a gentle and easy approach, 
2. Graciousness - practice should be done in a gracious and pleasant atmosphere,
3. Gracefulness - all practice or movements should be done gracefully and beautifully, in a beautiful flow, and
4. Gratefulness - strive to have a grateful or thankful attitude. 

A Gift - these exercises or movements are a gift "from the Great Tao" or "the Great Source of all Life", and are for us to live a better and longer life, so let us show our appreciation.


Here are the Four P's of Practice: 

1. Plan to Practice - make a plan, put a time in our planner, or strive for a regular time or times when we will practice,
2. Practice - actually do the practice, do not let interruptions interfere with the practice. The ideal is to practice four or more times a week, and if we do, we will generally receive great benefit, including slowing down, or even reversing the aging process. More and more we can become eternal youths. 
3. Progress - remember that progress comes with practice,
4. Perfection - practice makes perfect, or perfection comes with practice. 
Note: Our ability to perform the exercises will get better and easier with practice.

     A gentle and gradual approach is, generally the best way to learn these exercises. Take it step-by-step. Do your gentle best   

    Each of these sets of exercises are relatively easy to do, and most people can learn to do each set in about 2 to 5 minutes. Once learned, the practice time for each set is about one to five minutes.

       Also, it is perfectly fine for us do any one or more of the exercises from the sets. It is perfectly fine to change the order of the sets, or we can do any one set we choose. We may also combine these exercises with any other exercises we know.

       Gradually we strive to be more and more aware of the breathing, and try to coordinate the breathing with our movements. The more we coordinate the breathing with the movement, the more effective the exercise becomes.

     Many people, especially in China, have been cured or freed of many diseases or health problems by the practice of tai chi and/or chi kung.

    Also, the sense I have is that these exercises can be the significant factor in improving our health, slowing down or reversing the aging process, and helping to cure many health problems, especially low energy or fatigue.

       These exercises are a gift for a lifetime and a gift to extend our lifetime, that is, if we practice.

       How often would it be good to practice. First of all, it is a good reminder that practice makes perfect. Practice brings progress. So the question is: How much perfection do we want, or how much progress do we want? Any practice we do will bring some progress. Just doing the breathing exercises "regularly" could bring a significant progress or help.

       What I have found, is that if we do a "regular" practice 4 or more times a week, this can bring a significant improvement in our health, and a significant slowing down of the aging process; or even a reversal of the aging process, where our bodies become stronger, healthier, more flexible, and we have more energy.
