This is a lovely 14-minute qigong exercise for the kidneys and their corresponding element of water by Mimi Kuo-Deemer: Yoga, Qigong and Mindfulness. In Chinese Medicine, Qigong exercises and their focus can change to reflect the season and its corresponding element in that season. Winter is the season when we focus on the element of water, which is associated with the yin organ of the kidneys. These exercises reflect this focus.
When I give a remote medical Qigong treatment, I usually schedule the treatment at a time when the client will be asleep. I do this so he/she will be relaxed and be more "energetically open" to the treatment. During one of these remote Qigong treatments on a patient with intense grief, I was using a protocol called the "13 Ghost Points". While doing his treatment I felt impressed that his treatment would be better if I could simultaneously work on all these acupuncture points at the same time. I felt that the "invisible needle process" that is sometimes used in Qigong, would not be as effective than if I had 4 other people who could help with the treatment. I then had the impression I could energetically "divide myself up" and station myself at each of the locations where I needed an extra set of hands - one at his head, another at his right hand, another at his right foot, another at another at his left foot, and another at his left hand. With this one brief thought, of dividing to conquer this illness, I then instantly split into 5 parts of "me" and quickly positioned myself at each location. We all then worked simultaneously to work on changing his Qi to one that could ease his grief, and then moving his Qi to help him heal.
At the conclusion of his treatment, I then just automatically seemed to all come back together back into one whole. The visual I had was like watching liquid mercury that had been divided, now suddenly all return back to center.
The feedback I received from my client after his treatment was that he now felt SO MUCH BETTER. He remarked how it seemed something had been released and he was now back to normal.
For me, I came away with an awareness that when you are "energy" you can do things that you can't do when you are "physical". In this remote treatment, I was "energy", and a result was able to divide myself up and become an "extra set of hands" that could be used for his treatment and improve his healing outcome. This healing method was based on an impression I received during his treatment, perhaps a message from his energetic self, so it was individual and effective for his treatment.
