When I am evaluating the the different organs in a person’s body, an image often pops in my mind that helps describes what is happening. For example, when I was focusing on sending energy to a clients kidneys, which in Chinese Medicine is considered the persons storehouse of energy, kind of like the battery of the body, I may get an image of a kidney that looks like it is burned and singed. This tells me the person is probably “burned out” and needs to rest more, stop burning the candle on both ends, find a way to nourish and care for themselves to replenish their inner spark. The image tells me they don't have enough stored up energy to combat their health problem.
Recently during a Qigong treatment, I saw a rather lifeless set of kidneys during her treatment. So during her treatment, I focused on sending a LOT of energy to her kidneys. She came back the following week for another treatment and in that one week, the image I now saw was new growth! I saw little buds of green popping through soil. It was thrilling to see this type of transformation in just one week!
I recognize that not all medical Qigong practitioners will see images during a treatment, but for me, I have found, this is how the client’s energy communicates with me to let me know what is going on within the client. This ability to understanding these messages, and then act on those messages, is what helps clients get well. The treatments can then be personal and can help pinpoint where the problem is and where healing energy is needed.
