Energy Flow or ‘Flowing Breeze Swaying Willows’ is a vital part of your Qigong practice. Energy flow speeds up the removal of blockages from the energy steams/meridians of the body.
I was told that if someone is stamping their feet during energy flow they are getting rid of toxins and that if they are shaking they are cleansing the tissues.
However your body moves, or does not move, during energy flow remember that you are not moving your body. You don’t think: ‘Oh, I’ll stamp my feet and that will help to get rid of toxins’.
No, no. During energy flow you let go and do nothing. You let your energy/qi do the healing. Your job is to get you out of the way!
