: : For those that don't know me, I have suffered from chronic migraine since I was 5 ( only 20 years so far :) but since I have been practicing, I have seen a "huge" decrease in the number of headaches and the severity. So until yesterday, I had not gotten a migraine for about 3 weeks which seems like forever. So yesterday came as a big shock, but instead of getting discouraged about it I got excited, because this would be a good way for me to give Luke feedback on his new tape. So I came home, and popped it into the stereo. Needless to say, that tape is so awesome. I just allowed myself to totally let go and allowed my head to totally let go. After about 20 minutes of the tape I was so relaxed and so involved in the whole "chi" thing, I didn't even realize that my headache was gone. I don't know when it left but it did and for anyone that has ever had a migraine, it seemed shocking to me that I didn't notice it leaving. All that aside, the tape really helped me to concentrate in a time when I: didn't even want to think much less do La Chi to a tape. The affirmations and visuals on the tape led me through it so I could focus on "headache chi" disappearing and that made all the difference to me. I wonder what "headache chi" looks like? :) oh well, Just thought I would share. Love to all Becci
I was just thinking this morning, as I was getting ready for work. I was in the bathroom, in front of the mirror and as I slid the medicine cabinet door open and saw my "old" prescription bottles sitting in there - I was reminded that I can't even remember the last time I had a migraine! :) I am so close to being able to say - " I used to get chronic migraines" and it really awes me. I mean only a year ago, I had a neurologist tell me, at 23 years old, that there was nothing else he could do for me - if he could only see me now. lots of love and only 8 days to go until my first 100 days is complete! :) Becci
Hi - I have also gotten rid of migraines by using ChiLel. I used to get them everyday - almost no moments of relief but I learned to live with them taking daily medication. When I found ChiLel though, I stopped all my medication and found that after about a month I only got them a couple days a week and they were less severe, and as I kept practicing they gradually decreased until now I no longer get migraine headaches. when i was still getting them though, I used to sit and listen to the Journey tape, in the dark and start doing La Chi. I would gather enough healing chi between my hands that I could "feel" it and then would deliver that to my head. I would do this over and over and my headaches would disappear. So when you make the decision to quit all meds or get to the point where no meds seem to work anymore - try doing La Chi. It is very quiet, very little movement, and you can do it in the dark so there is not a lot of light to bother your head. Turn the tape on low and start practicing - it worked for me and was a huge breakthrough that I knew I could defeat them if they did come. Much loving chi to you all!!! Becci
Here is Becci’s La Chi visualization: As I pull my hands apart I
visualize that my hands are out in the starry sky and as I bring them together
again, I bring in all of the chi (huan yan chi)
as the stars and they form a large glowing mass between my hands.
Each time it gets larger and stronger and when it has reached a really
strong, large ball of chi - I take that ball and deliver it to wherever I have
pain or stress and visualize it washing over the area and changing all of the
pain/stress to a glowing area of huan yan chi.
Then I repeat that again - growing a large glowing ball and then deliver
it to the area of need. It becomes
a glowing penetrating ball that almost pulsates with healing

interests over the years but this is the first time I have ever stuck with
anything for 300 consecutive days! Those of you that are daily practitioners

Hello my name
is Edward I just recently began my qigong training. I am in my first gong. Just finished
my first full moon meditation It was great!! I felt great and set me up for the
perfect aikido class ever not to many mistakes and good energy. Since the beginning
of qigong and aikido in to my life I have not had one migraine headache of which
I had many beforehand. Thank you Dharma Zen center/Aikido Ai dojo for changing
my life forever and that is how long I plan on practicing these arts.
I have TMJ and ChiLel has definitely helped to some degree (fewer headaches, less clicking of jaw). And the only thing that's ever helped a TMJ headache for me is doing the wall squats which usually makes my headache disappear. I firmly believe that over time, it will disappear completely. If you look further down the forum list, there are some postings on the subject.
Much chi to you!
