No pain, no gain

kew-stones-zen

After another sweat infested sleep, I feel on top again this morning. Up at 5:30am and spent a good hour playing Chi Kung and Tai Chi. My latest favourite trick is the standing still pose. I managed 10 minutes today, I could have done quite a bit more too. This seems to be having good effects on my twisted body, and it is very rewarding when one finds a new area of pain and then feel it dissolving. Imaging my tired and locked muscles finally untwining and releasing. In this way I am finding where my blockages are which then I can release and allow my Chi to flow nicely. I suppose my ultimate goal is to get back to my child like body. No tension, maximum flexibility and full of energy.

Say hello, wave good bye

One trick I am finding useful comes from Louise Hay, where when you notice a pain, thank your body for sharing this with you and then gently let it go. So maybe no pain, no gain is useful after-all?
