In April's post, I stated that Qi means Energy. It also means Breath. I remember the qigong instructor telling us in the first class. "Even if you don't remember anything else but how to breathe in the qi, then you have already accomplished 90% of qigong. Yes breathing is the foundation of qigong. How you are able to fill your body with the right amount of the healing qi on a daily basis will energize your whole being. So true Energy work is equal to Breath work.
A recent scientific study showed that the majority of people are only taking 36% of the required oxygen needed for body functions like repair, growth and maintaining of the organs and cells. The required amount is 60%. Is that not an alarming statistics. Before you panic and wonder how much it would cost to rectify the situation or what expensive gadgets to get, stop and listen. Learn how to breathe the qigong way which you can do in the comfort of your home. If you need a few pointers or support, then please contact me or Skype me. Be assured, it will not be costly now and will save you time, money and worries in the future. On the other hand if you continue with the breathing you're doing now, you are most probably already seeing the effects of breathing poorly and included side-effects of poor breathing patterns are lack of energy, allergies, chronic fatigue, overwhelm, respiratory, cardio, skeletal and muscular problems headaches, insomnia.......Are you getting the picture???
At present, many clients make an appointment with me when they have a physical or psychological problem and when I show them the qigong breath, their problems are reduced. What I like to see are clients who want to prevent certain medical problems that they have seen in their parents or grandparents. Please send me a comment or request.

Qigong pronounced Chee Gung, is not familiar to the western public and even to some people in the East. Yet, people have heard of acupuncture, tai chi and kung fu which all have their root in qigong.
Qi means energy and gong means work. Qigong practice began in China during the reign of the Yellow Emperor and the medical qigong was reserved only for the royalty.
There are many types of Qigong usually named after the Qigong Master who developed the qigong moves. Not all Qigong are Medical Qigong. It is adviced not to practice more than two types of qigong as it could be counterproductive to do so.
I found out about Qigong, when I was doing research on alternative medicine, after my cancer surgery and orders from the oncologist to go for chemotherapy. Before going to the qigong classes, I had explored other forms of alternative therapies that just did not seem to balance my screwed up energies or remove my pain. Oh did I tell you that the oncologist threatened that if I did not go for chemotherapy, the cancer would be back within two years and chemo would not even be an option then.
After 2 months of attending the classes and doing the qigong techniques several times a day, I noticed a return of my energies and decrease in my pain level, so much so that I returned to work, sooner than expected. Part of the qigong therapy included meditation for half an hour daily. This was not a problem for me as I had already learned and practice meditation for a few years previously. This meditation was slightly different.
It's been nine years now and I still do my qigong techniques several times a week and incorporated some of the techniques in coaching my clients. Yes this powerful technique is one that has kept me free of cancer and also of chronic pain that I had even before the diagnosis of cancer.

Energy Medicine is the future of Medicine (Dr. Mehmet Oz)
In my March post, I mentioned writing posts explaining RET or Revitalizing Energy Techniques which has roots in Energy Medicine, Energy Psychology, Qigong and two other modalities. The other posts would describe how I was lead to these modalities and how I put my creative touch to them, to help myself and my clients.
The energy that is common with Energy Medicine, Energy Psychology and Qigong is none other than Bio-Scalar Energy. This energy can't be seen like the fireworks above but the effect is more spectacular than any fireworks. I've experienced this energy and so have many others including my clients, who are usually dumbfounded.
My purpose for these posts is to explain something is not always seen by the human eye and as yet can't be measured by human tools. However, its existence was mentioned by Einstein, Tesla and other scientists.
Reading about it might not convince you which is why I've offered many times on this site a trial to experience it for yourself. I've even offered workshops and seminars, including ones online. So tune in for the next post in mid- April and let me know through your comments if you would like to particpate in a Energy Boosting Seminar.

As the video on this page indicate, Empower-You Enterprise is all about treating anxiety and fear. Actually fear is the layer which anxiety is build on. Anxiety is usually the root of all flourishing dis-eases, be it physical or psychological?. Yes viruses, bacterias and genetics do contribute to diseases, yet some exposed to these variables are not affected by the diseases. Why? Of the many reasons, two does stand out in history and in my present work with clients; Fear and.Anxiety.
Both Fear and Anxiety expect the worst outcome and are not based on present reality. Instead fear and anxiety are based on previous memory which does not exist in the present reality. Fear and anxiety affect the physical systems of the body. Fear and Anxiety stimulates the hormones which is commonly called the Fight and Flight hormones. The major organs like the lungs,heart, stomach and brain is on alert mode.Oxygen circulation is reduced to many parts of the body. The para-sympathetic system which calms the body is literally shut down. The body's sympathetic system is on high alert and sees everything external and even internal as an urgent threat. If this situation continues, the body becomes worn down and the immune system breaks down and civil war occurs within the body. Could you think of different times when you have been affected?
Many people, myself included look outside of ourselves for causes of our diseases and science comes readily to our help by giving us names of bacteria, parasites and viruses. More recently it has been the recessive gene or absence of a particular DNA or a specific chromosome. All this leaves us feeling that the answer to cures are the responsibility of scientists, physicians, surgeons and chemists.
As we have seen in the past few decades, even with the intervention of these experts, people are dying from heart disease and cancer prematurely. People have become disillusioned with the conventional medical system. People who have transferred to the alternative, holistic health system, seem to have a more empowering attitude to their health. In the next few articles, we'll look at the evolution of alternative or holistic or natural medicine and why it attracts more and more people each year. Why am I such an ardent promoter of natural, energy medicine and energy psychology?

Valentine's Day is in mid-February, yet from the window dressings of the stores and the advertisements in the media, it might as well be Valentine's month. All the hype began on the first of February. So what is the celebration about and why am I using the word empowering?
Yes, with all the advertisement, you would think the celebration was about romantic or intimate love which in the Greek language is Eros. There is also, Philio, Storgo and Agape. In the English language, there is only one word for all the 4 types and it is Love.
However Valentine lived during the Roman Empire and he did die for love but a love that was Agape, which is an altruistic love which he had for his fellowmen and for his God. He was killed for that love. Ironic if people are celebrating it for their own gain or satisfaction instead of truly giving of themselves to the ones they claim to love.
There are two other types of love that can be celebrated on Valentine's Day, One is Philio which is brotherly or sisterly love or love among friends and the other is Storge which is love among family members.
Love is Universal. Love is also Healing. Love is Forgiving. Love is Consoling, Love Strengthens, Love Inspires. Love Creates! Love does all this if it is unselfish. It is agape love that can remove anxiety and depression.
All these loves (Agape, Storge, Philio and Eros) could be empowering if you remember to appreciate and respect the person you're celebrating with or the person you're buying the gift for. It should come from your heart which means you should find out what the person likes before buying the gift. Yes put some thought into Valentine's and I've made it easier for you if you take a look at the upper right side of the screen.
It's your choice what you make of Valentine's Day and the type of love that will dominate that day. I'm giving a rose from the vase above for each of you who visit this site and that is from the love called Agape. Happy Valentine's!

The post I published previously on Anxiety Release for 2012 generated some phone calls from people who have some anxiety in their lives. So I decided to offer 15 minutes free to release anxiety of my readers for a limited time.
I've had excellent results working with clients to release their anxiety. The anxieties of my clients have been on various issues. Here are some of the many anxiety provoking issues that have been released.
1.Anxious about examinations or test anxiety
3. Anxious about moving away
4. Separation anxiety
5. Anxious about being in a crowd
6. Job related anxieties
7. Anxiety due to fear of needles, spiders, snakes.
8. Anxiety due to pending medical treatment, surgery
9. Relationship anxiety
10.Anxiety related to past traumas
Usually an assessment is done on a SUD where the anxiety is rated from a Level of 1 which is very mild to a 10 which is very high. As I work on the person, we continue to assess till the Level returns to one or zero.
With a fifteen minute session it is a short-term solution. In order for the anxiety to remain completely released, it usually involves several sessions with an average of seven sessions as we will have to work on other aspects of the issue or issues that began the anxiety response.
So we hope that many of you will take advantage of this free 15 minutes and see how this valuable tool works and how you could learn and use it yourself in further sessions.
You could send me an e-mail to request a free anxiety release consultation! At present I will only accept e-mail requests.
Well this is 2012 and we're still here. Are you grateful for that? Or are you anxious about all the predictions of 2012? Nothing has changed according to the media, except that the reports of all the gloom and doom in the economic and social landscapes of the world is worsening. Yet if anyone of you have found something changed within you that have made you see things differently, perhaps an expectation, or a hope that things might be changing for the better, then anxiety has not taken root. Congrats.
The fact is that in the latest statistics, anxiety disorders are on the rise. 1 in 4 people have anxiety disorder. Phobias, addictions, pain, certain medications and previous traumas also contribute to anxiety disorder. So many people would deny that they are anxious and yet resort to addictions for relief. And I don't mean drugs and alcohol and smoking. How many of you feel that you need sweets to relax you? How many find comfort foods (extremely high sodium or sugar and high caloric foods) for relaxation? How many go on shopping sprees to calm themselves or gamble? How many use sex for anxiety relief?
Don't you think any of the above have side-effects? All the above addictions have temporary relief but lasting side-effects. I know as I've worked with many as an anxiety transformation coach. Many who come to me, have used conventional treatments with short-term success without getting control of their anxiety on a permanent basis.
What if I told you there was a better way? A way that has proven to be a long lasting treatment for anxiety? It has worked on many people and it will probably work for you. It is simple yet powerful. It will take some effort on your part to continue the treatment for a few sessions and do the homework given. The emphasis is finishing the course of the treatment, even though after a couple of sessions, you might not feel anxious anymore, that is only the surface as further treatments will discover the root causes and once that is removed, the anxiety will be gone for good which means, disturbing news in the media or from external sources will not raise your anxiety levels. That does not mean you will be numb to the "bad" news. It means that your anxiety thermometer will not fluctuate and you are able to be calm within.
Yes 2012 might be the year for you to be finally liberated from anxiety or the anxiety disorder.with this natural treatment. Wishing all my long time readers as well as my new readers a Year filled with Calm and Joyful Expectations.
