WHO HAS THE SECRET?
By Trish Clark
The truth is Luke has given us all access to the secret power of Chi Gong! The secret is in the turning power of the dantian and everyone can develop this skill if they are willing to practice. I had to come all the way to China to get this incredible gift and much more. This trip has revealed a whole new dimension of Chi Gong to me.
I now know that by putting my mind in the dantian that my spirit is available to operate in my life without the chatter of my mind. While my mind has quieted I have a new sense of true power, inner strength and calmness that is much deeper than I had previously experienced.
I am beginning to get a glimpse of the yin and yang in the forms such as the principle of Ching Ling, move yet not to move, to think up while moving down. I had an understanding of these before, but while I have been here I have felt them starting to work in my practice. The many gifts I have received are still being unwrapped in my daily practice as I explore the depth of the “secret”.
I feel blessed to have made this journey to a wonderful land and return home with many Chi treasures!
Much love and chi
enjoyed my stay in Zhong Shan very much. The apartment and the food were very
good and you cared for everything. Thank you so much.
discovered my Chi ball and the strength in my body as a center, where you
always have to be. You made that very clear in all the stories you told us. In
the beginning it was very heavy for me to do all the gongs and sometimes I had
to rest a little bit. But I remember your words Quality goes for Quantity very
well and I did so. My favorites were the Yee Chi Ball, and all the center
movements with relax and sinking. Off course that has also to do with my goal of
healing my diabetes. I end up with 30 E for the night insulin 24 hours ahead (
was 70E and no injections at all for the morning and afternoon. I only had to
correct my diner with a little insulin. That is a very good result. However,
what I realized now very good is, that I have to continue with the exercises as
learned. Second thing to do is, to correct my food in
to the program, I did a lot of reading, books from Chopra, Martina and
Hay. I made a list of everything, I have to release and things to do. Sometimes
hard to do, but I am feeling very good about it.
I heard for the first time about the Chinese hospital and Chi-Lel, I
instinctively decided to visit that facility. I was somewhat disappointed, that
it was not possible anymore to go there. So I dreamed and made a very strong
intention to do something with it.
the possibility for a training with you came up and I decided to attend. That
you arrange also Master Yang was a very pleasant surprise for me. My intentions
seamed to work! Now, we had a small
effective canter in Zhong Shan. During
the day training from you and in the evening meditations with Master Yang and
emitting Chi to me.
admire you, because you were with
us all the time and translated everything from Master Yang without getting impatient. Great.
did I learn:
did a little site-seeing and I will remember the diners every week with the group
and the birthday party with Peter and your family.
are a very effective and passionate teacher and let people free, that is rare and
I appreciate it very much.
our conversations about the Spirit , the Mind and the connection with the Body,
I remember very well. I liked that.
I made a diary for myself every day
and send it to my partner. It is now a wonderful document for me and my partner
was lucky to enjoy also the group with Luise from
Thank you for everything, live well in good health and love, with your family and I wish you lots of Chi.
hope I can see and work with you again. Maybe
in November in
my greetings to the Nanny and Master Yang.
|My China Experience
by Luise Kohl-Hajek
Staying in China with Luke has opened a door for me to return to my real self, to that place inside me where I am safe and strong in a healthy way. I have actually learned to create that feeling of "being home" for myself: it just takes sinking in my Dantian right now and sending my 'monkey- mind' there to allow my spirit to enjoy a deep sense of calmness and relaxation. Finally the octopus has realized that besides having tentacles it has got a center, too. It feels a lot different to move my 'tentacles' from this central power station inside my Dantian. However, it took me time to realize the difference and create the turning which is giving me a glimpse of the power of real Chi in my body. The chance of becoming a true body-mind entity excites me and is a wonderful new perspective in my life. This way I may be able to break the unhealthy and inefficient circle of overwork and collapse which I have been trapped in for so many years.
Not knowing that it really existed this is exactly what I have been searching for for so long: a method to train myself to move and work energetically yet relax and be calm at the same time.
I have realized that true strength derives from being anchored in my body and turning the energy mill inside. True relaxation is very different from collapsing and dissolving, because the center is always there to relate to. Provided I will take the effort of practicing continuously and regularly and allow the process to unfold gradually I am convinced Chi-Lel will help me to acquire a structure and eventually retain it at all times by being aware of my center and my physical body and by being in charge of my own mind.
There is deep wisdom in the Taoist principles of Yin and Yang. Chi-Lel is based on these principles. The principles of Ching (moving yet thinking 'not moving') and Ling (going up thinking 'down' and vice versa) are just two concepts that give me an idea of the wonderful treasures waiting to be discovered and integrated into my life. Step by step!
I am just beginning to walk like Little Peter, Luke s one-year-old son who took his first steps into life today.
There´s Chinese frogs out there.
How do I know they are Chinese?
I don´t know what they are saying.
Now does that prove that they´re Chinese or frogs at all?
Barking like huge dogs
Waking me up in the middle of the night..
The other day one of them suddenly
jumped up to the window of our living-room,
A tiny green frog, the size of a kiwi.
It must have been a Chinese one.
How do I know?
I´m sure when it was jumping “up”
It was thinking “down”.
yan chi is plentiful
is plenty of food, plenty of space,
of air, plenty of love.
yan Chi is plentiful.
is plenty of light, plenty of time,
of good things ahead.
doubt, if we are connected to Source
is abundance everywhere.
yan Chi is plentiful.
inside there is healing and power
like a wave rolling on the shore.
water that formed the wave
is plenty of water, plenty of power
create new waves- innumerable, unlimited.
ocean of blue clear space
forever rolling and turning.
