A Powerful Little Exercise

by Marcus on January 15, 2011

Here’s a simple little exercise that is vitally important for your future.

Close your eyes and get as clear an image as you can of a man (if you’re a man) or a women (if you’re a women), in their 70’s. And if you’re in your 70’s think of someone in their 90’s. Really invest some effort with this.

  • What do they look like?
  • What do they wear?
  • How do they move?
  • How do they smell?
  • When they talk, how do they sound?

Go on really get involved with this for the next 3 minutes and don’t read on until you’ve done this exercise.

The Point of This Exercise: So how was that? Did you get a really good, clear image, idea, feel for it? I want to tell you now that the image you formed is you at that age. It’s a reflection on how you view a person of 70 (or 90). So did you like what you saw? If you did, congratulations.

If you didn’t (and I certainly didn’t when I first did this exercise) then listen up. When would now be a good time to change your ideas about what it means to be in the ‘Winter’ of your days?

The daily, correct practice of Qigong can help you to live a happier, healthier and longer life. It is well documented as being a powerful tool for health, vitality and longevity. There is a reason why a literal translation of Qigong is ‘Energy Work’.

Todays Reminder: Perception is often more important than reality. Do some research of your own, contrary to popular, conventional western wisdom it is not compulsory to be weak, frail or feeble minded in old age. Change your perception now.

Have you done your Qigong practice today?
