He came one day as if from nowhere. For six days and six nights he sat and prayed by the Temple doors.
From whence did he come and to where did he go? All we know is what he said - "Chi"
What was left was a special blend of magical life enhancing herbs, twigs and fruits.
For thousand of years, the Chinese have believed that entire universe is pervaded by a special energy and an all pervading force.
This energy found on Earth itself, is of a exact and precise nature that has allowed life to come forth. The Earth was conceived to sit at the center of all the cosmological forces, receiving energy in balance from outer-space, which the Chinese have simply termed
"Heaven" and from the Earth. This all-powerful life-force energy is known as "CHI" in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The greatest concentration of this this life-force energy is the human body and should be treasured and nourished daily so as to achieve every-lasting
health and wisdom.
Emperors Chi is from the Original recipe that was consumed only the Emperors and the royal courts of ancient China over 2000 years ago.
The Yellow emperor was the first emperor of the Qin Dynasty. Legend has it that because of the energy it took establishing rule in the empire he sent the word to find a elixir great enough that he and his court would only consume this tea to give them rightous Qi.
This Journey of discovery called Life is to be on the Tao, the path, the Way. There are three forces that will make this journey easier and effortless.
These forces are the Three Treasures. Jing is your Vital Essence, Qi (chi) is your vital spark that manifest your energy, and Shen your spirit, your light.
With the Up and down times of Wall Street and down times on Main street. How do we deal the Stress, the foreclosers, the down-sizing, the lay-offs, the raising of cost of Living. How do we keep our head above water. We want our life more than just treading water.
In our 24/7 A.D.D. stressful world we must find ways to not let stress burn up Our candle to quickly.
This is what I call the Chi Lifestyle, the Tao of Qi. They are meditation, prayer, contemplation, deep breathing, diet, exercise and of course Emperors Chi.
You see the key word here is "Balance". Balanced body, balanced lifestyle, balanced mind and balanced spirit.
Balance your World with Emperors Chi!
So how do we create Balance in ours lives. TheTaoist Masters use the analogy of a candle to describe three forces.
Jing: is the base of the candle which is your body, your essence, the sum parts of who you are.
Qi: (chi)is the candle flame and therefore your life force. This is the force that fuels you, moves you, and motivates you through out your life
Shen: is your Spirit and Light given off by the candle that equals the light you share with World.
A problem arises when you concentrate on or just stimulate your Chi. We get up in the morning, grab that coffee or coke on your way to work or the gym.
Have you ever tried to make a fire with only kindling. It burns hot and fast and dies out quickly.
When you do this you increase your Chi. But if there is not enough to start with, no substance
to maintain the your fire. You start burning your stores, your Jing. You start robbing your body very slowly which will rob your Shen and the world will lost your wonderful gift, wonderful Light.
The Taoist gave us the answers to help balance our lives. And one of the answers is
