Beginners and intermediate students often have difficulty with unbalanced jinggong or quiescent meditation when they have not yet learned to control or guide the chi properly.This is because the chi is being generated too quickly for the body to handle, but the student’s yi consciousness is still not well developed enough to control or guide the chi.
At this point, it is important not to attempt to stop the spontaneous movement or to control or guide the very raw undeveloped chi. If you do so prematurely, you could injure the chi.
Practice this simple exercise for calming down and bringing your over-active chi energy back under balance and control. This can be applied at the conclusion of any tai chi qigong routine to settle your intrinsic energy again.
