As part of this process, I usually do meditations in the early morning and then gentle Qigong exercises over lunch. In my Qigong-type meditations I sometimes have an idea in mind what want, such as nourishing my organs, or doing a micro-cosmic orbit and rebuilding my energy reserves. But sometimes I just start and allow things to just happen. Sometimes the change of events happen in the grounding, which is what, recently occurred.
Sometimes in a medical qigong treatment, I will use different colors in the treatment. Occasionally the color of a glittery gold will come to mind, and when this happens, it is as if this is a type of pure refined earth energy. I can also feel it come from a different source than the usual earth energy, which also seems to make it more special.
So during a meditation, I went through my typical grounding process and then felt as if something was taking over and my grounding connection continued deeper than expected, and also took a turn from what I expected. I then noticed this glittery gold coming up from the grounding and nourishing me. This was much unexpected. I had never done this for me; only for my clients, but here was this energy source being funneled into me and I could immediately feel a difference within.
By using the personal Qigong tools, such as exercises and meditation for maintaining health, sometimes unexpected benefits in self healing can occur.
