What is Qi?

Big question people ask is what really is Qi?

Qi in basic terms is the energy which fills the univere. Is it something we can see?..no.  Something we can feel? Well that depends on what we define as “feel”.
I am “feeling good today”. In that sense yes we can say our Qi is higher and we “feel” in health. In terms of a physical feelling, well some people say they can physically feel theirs or others Qi. Myself..no.

The most important thing about Qi is that it shouldn’t be seen as a mystical or esoteric thing. Its just the natural force with in our bodies and in our surroundings. I think many people are intimidated or confused when certain teachers talk to much about the “mystical” aspects of Qi.

In the Chinese and also Japanese language (Ki), Qi is used widely to define a type of energy that is able to  show power and strength. Therefore  it has a much wider use within these cultures and languages.

In modern understandings, Qi can be understood as the bio-electrical energy. Just think of it as if the battery is low, the machine does not perform to its best. Same with humans, low Qi causes a slower system, leaving us open to illnesses and bad health in general.
