A new student during there second qigong class tells class they feel so hot in there lower back that it was challenging for them to focus on other energy centers during exercises tonight. Said the feelings in his Kidneys were like hot coals (two hot coals, one in the location of the left kidney and the other in the location of the right kidney) and reminded him of his Grandpa taking Red-Hot Coals out of the fire/ (Barbecue) and setting them on the ground!
I read in a qigong book that the Kidneys can become very hot from the qigong practice which can result in internal purification and health improvements. When the Kidneys are working at a high temperature (related to the qigong practice) they can:
Purify the blood
Transform and refine many negative unhealthy energies like Fears and Paranoi’s to Virtues like Courage, Confidence, Freedom, Wisdom and Internal Will
Also, when the Kidneys are functioning at a super high level (the thousand/s of diseases that man suffers from will be cured) man will not experience all these diseases that man suffers from… (taking all the drugs, and creams to treat all the symptoms and not the origin/cause of the problem).
In Chinese Medicine they say if the Kidneys are weak then people can have health issues including:
Infertility, slow development and early senility
Sore and weak lower back
Weak body and bones
Ringing in the ears
and many more problems too
Continued Qigong training from the above mentioned student will help them live up to their life potential’s and give them health and wisdom far beyond the average human! -Brendan 11/16/11
“I started taking Qi Gong with Brendan Thorson over a year ago. I had never taken a Qi Gong class before and didn’t know what to expect. During the very first session I began to feel a startling sensation: a magnetic, taffy-like energy between my hands and a current spiraling from my head through the core of my body. Admittedly, I was both unsettled and full of wonder about what this mysterious feeling was. It was Qi, and my new awareness of it would change my life. Later that day after my first class, I began to feel discomfort in my chest as if a cork were stuck and trying to burst. I remember thinking that I wasn’t so sure Qi was a good thing! In retrospect, I understand that the Qi was working to push through years of stagnant accumulation in my chest—feelings I had held onto that were impeding my health, my ability to be open, and in general my ability to “go with the flow.” Within a couple more sessions with Brendan my chest became clear, the discomfort went away, and I began to experience a strong connection with Qi during my practices. During some practices the Qi felt like a gentle, cleansing waterfall through my head and hands. I could take a deep breath. I was sleeping better at night. I was feeling more vitality. A light that I hadn’t seen in my eyes for a while returned. My skin seemed to glow. I was happier and feeling more in tune with myself, connected with others, and more at ease with the ebb and flow of the universe. I became dedicated to cultivating Qi and to continuing to strengthen my reserves and to leading a more aware, healthy and balanced lifestyle.
Recently I moved from Seattle to Los Angeles. What I have missed most is Brendan’s class! Whenever I come back to Seattle to visit I always try to schedule as many sessions with Brendan as I can. Brendan’s classes even partly inspired me to begin studying Traditional Chinese Medicine in Los Angeles. I love my classes and am excited to be on this new path. I am grateful to say that Brendan’s Qi Gong class and my personal discovery of the wonders of Qi cultivation have enhanced my life. I wholeheartedly recommend Brendan’s classes to anyone who is curious about exploring Qi Gong.”
