The 8 Steps to Chinese Healing

Step No. 1: Belief

If you think you can then you can! Being able to unlock your subconscious mind depends on knowing what you want before you can achieve it.”
Stephen Richards

Along with belief and faith, visualization plays a big part in Qi control and self-healing. Before you can prepare the body, you need to get in the right frame of mind in order to prepare it for the tasks to come.

Without the “right attitude” for practice and a positive outlook on life, no practice in the world can bring you peace of mind, physical health, happiness, and longevity.

You have direct control of whether or not these 8 Steps will work for you or not. If you don’t believe…..they won’t; if you do believe…..they will! Simple as that. Belief and faith plus making the effort will work for you…if you only let them.

The “Shen” Spirit

Your energy is capable of accomplishing whatever you believe it can do. In Qigong, the mind is referred to as the “spirit” or “shen” which commands the energy in your body. This energy is your Qi (Chee). You must train your mind to be able to command that Qi. In doing so, you can move it not only to any part of your body but to project it out of your body to heal others. This is a skill which you can learn as you progress in your training.

The “spirit” (your mind) is the ultimate authority in the human system, and therefore it has the power to control qi energy through “mind intent.” It is said that blood follows Qi. Blood is what transports the healing elements from the immune system to all parts of the body. As a result, you need to use the power of the mind and using positive thinking, belief and faith as a basis for awakening the body’s own natural healing responses.

Mind Melding (Spock style)

The purpose of the qigong exercises are designed to “meld your mind intent with the qi energy.” In doing so, you can control where it goes at will to be used for healing yourself and others. This is to help you to associate your mental visualization with a physical movement. This, in turn will train your body to “meld qi” with your thought control.

Belief and faith in what you are doing is absolutely basic to the effort you are about to exert. You do this in order to achieve what you set out to accomplish in healing yourself. All doubts need to be eliminated from your mind as they will impede your efforts and are counter-productive. Not only must you believe, but somehow you need to visualize what you are attempting to accomplish. As a result, your body knows and can respond to your mind’s directions.

Belief, Faith and Visualizations

Visualization will be utilized in some of the steps you will perform and are a vital part of what you will be doing. Think about this: everything we do begins as a thought. Every action, every word, every human creation exists first in the realm of our imagination.

The ability to see things before they actually happen is what enables us to pursue our dreams and ultimately achieve them. In fact, the better we visualize the future we want, the better our chances to make it happen.

Your brain cannot differentiate well between real action and mental action. There has been research done showing that thinking about an action — even while your body is at rest — will fire the neural pathways in your brain just as you were actually doing it.


We hate to ask for donations or money handouts to help us support this our work on these websites. We have no other sources of income except from our Social Insecurity monthly checks. Consequently, we feel that if you are going to give money that you get something tangible in return. As a result, we have searched out what we think as reputable vendors with health-oriented products you can use who will pay us a small commission (at no extra cost to you). This way it is a win-win situation for both of us if you purchase items you need or want from from vendors mentioned on this website.
