The First Thief of Your Energy

In Chi Gung, there is a belief that you can contain your energy with how you live. There are five beliefs. In this blog I will centre on the first one. The first belief is in how you speak.

  1. Your words – Remember that phrase “speak no evil”?  We have to watch how we talk. So many patterns from our parents and peers bleed into our daily language and we have to hone it right back and think…”What is my intention through my words? Do I intend to harm or cure?” Here is a little reminder. The phrase “bite your tongue”, is there to tell us not to say things that will hurt or disrupt. Sometimes it’s not always a good idea to say nothing -and yet saying the truth can hurt. Aim to balance your words, always speaking your truth, but being kind with it too.

Be careful

Be courageous

Be Conscious

Be sure

Before you speak

Will your words kill – or cure?

Words can heal

To uplift is the goal

Words reveal

Valuate your role

Speak to your soul with respect in place

You’ll speak to others with equal grace

(SB 2017)

I came to yoga with a bad back and a full mind, lots of constant chatter, no different to anyone else... after 15 years of teaching... my mind still goes all monkey on me, the so called wild horses are still there... but I have it under control, I am aware of it..... my body has never felt so strong... yoga really solves so much...mind body and soul...
