THE GUIDING QI APPROACH

Step into a new way of looking at your life

 

"We do not have ideas. Rather, ideas come through us." Master Jim Nance

 

 

"I am like a first grader the first day of class.  I stand, both nervous and anxious, at the threshold of the doorway waiting for the class to begin.  A large, warm hand reaches out and envelopes mine, a jovial laugh relaxes me, a radiant smile welcomes me.  I step through the open door into a new world of wonder, magic, miracles, and infinite possibilities.  I play, learn, laugh, expand, discover, and explore.  I am a child again but I am also an ancient and wise soul awakening. This is the best way I can describe Master Jim Nance's Guiding Qi classes.  I am grateful for and awed by the opportunities offered.  It is a joy and a great privilege to participate in these classes." -Nancy

What tells your eyes to blink and your hair to grow? Of course this can be explained scientifically, but where did the knowledge come from which formed the science? 

 

There are so many things in life that we don't have to think about. How is it that we look like our ancestors? What tells ours hearts to beat? This is energy (Qi) at work. This energy is intelligent. It knows exactly where it's going, how it's getting there, and exactly what it needs to do once it gets there. This energy offers to support us at each and every moment. It's intelligence is intertwined in our lives, yet we make the mistake of feeling separate.

 

Inspired by the principles of Spring Forest Qigong, Guiding Qi is an applied approach to Qigong that allows one to access information within the essential intelligence that supports the energy of life.  This accessibility expands the capacity of sensory awareness and naturally transforms the energy within any circumstance or situation in life, for every form of energy is constantly projecting information. The more one engages the essential intelligence of Qi, the greater one’s ability to receive information.

 

According to George Markowsky, a professor of computer science at the University of Maine, the senses of the body-mind receive around 11 million bits of information per second from the surrounding environment. This information is then projected to the various systems in the body through the energetic pulses of the nervous system.  Yet the conscious mind is said to only process around 50 bits of information per second, which means the body-mind receives over 660 million bits of information per minute – but only processes 3,000 of those bits.  As a result, the vast majority of the human population is aware of less than 1% of the overall information available to the spectrum of consciousness.

Guiding Qi provides a method for processing information at levels higher than the capacity of the conscious mind.

 

 All have heard a guiding voice at one time or another, but few venture beyond their intellect to acknowledge its significance. When engaging the intellect to ‘think through’ or ‘deduce’ a situation, it is common to deliberately stop everything and go within. In this effort, there is a search for stillness, and in this stillness lies all of the information one will ever need. We all have the ability to access information that will guide us through our lives. 

 

Guiding Qi focuses on the intelligence that is always at work leading you to the answers you have received throughout life. The focus is not upon the individual pieces of the puzzle, but the sum of it's parts.  Rather than focusing on life's traumas, the process of Guiding Qi gives the individual an opportunity to view the past with a perspective filled with enthusiasm for the guidance they've experienced along the way. From this knowledge an ongoing relationship can be forged; a relationship with intelligence that has been with us all along. 

 

The goal is to learn to make choices that lead you to where you want to go in your life, and to be able to access this resource at will.  The more the process of Guiding Qi is active in the everyday situations and circumstances of life, the greater the opportunity is to follow this intelligent guidance.

RED BIRD

By Master Jim Nance
(edited excerpt taken from a live seminar 2017 "If you make your bed in heaven")
Transcribed + Edited by N.J. Nance

                In the middle of chaos, confusion, darkness, there always seems to be a light. Sometimes that light will show up through the people around you; sometimes that light will come through an experience. I’ve learned when things seem to be not at their brightest, there is opportunity also on the horizon. I know that if I’m patient, and I keep focused on whatever it is I am looking for, at some point it will surface. It’s not always easy to be in a situation where you think things will happen a certain way and they don’t.  What I’m talking about comes from my own experience. I’m an expert in my experience in as much as I know, but I’m not always on the mark when it comes to others. I find it very difficult to be in that position. So, what I’ve learned to do as I work to be of service to others is- I don’t place myself in the position of knowing. A major gift to me is this statement made by Master Chunyi Lin (founder of SFQ), he said “If you are successful in healing, it’s not your fault; if you’re unsuccessful in healing it’s not your fault.” The challenge is to remain objective throughout that process. Responsibility is really such a huge load. Our idea of a satisfactory outcome seems to be limited by our inability to take all of the elements of the task at hand into consideration. I remember one time I was working with someone who had cancer all over their body, this person was a friend of mine; he came into the office and sat down, in a couple of hours he had an appointment at the Mayo Clinic. As we were sitting there talking in the office I heard a bird at the window. I didn’t really pay close attention to it, but then the person that was with him said, “Look at that red bird sitting in the window! It’s an amazing bird!” As I turned to look behind me at the window I saw this bright flash of red pass in front of my eyes. All of a sudden this smile came over my face; I just knew something was going to happen. I didn’t know what. I didn’t know at all. So, I told him just relax and we’ll get started, and I started working with his energy. I felt energy move. I smelled energy move.  I knew that something had happened, but I didn’t know what. After we were done, I told him to give me a call later and let me know. He left and went down to the Mayo Clinic and had an evaluation. They found that all of the cancer was gone; all of it! I had no idea this was going to take place, nor did I have any idea of what had actually occurred during the healing session. But I knew; I truly knew that the red bird in the window had an impact on our session. Before I could even see it, it was affecting what was going on in the room. And that seems to be the way of things. There are so many elements involved, especially with healing, with health, and with energy, that it’s hard to identify what will tilt the scales to make a difference. I do know that whenever I feel like I have to carry the total responsibility for what occurs, that feeling, that way of thinking, throws me into an attitude of a perfectionist-I have to get everything right, I have to do everything correctly! I become so busy with the I-have-to’s that I can’t hear what is going on around me. I can’t see what’s going on in me or in the other person, and I can’t listen clearly. So I say to myself- wait a minute, the responsibility for health and healing is not on my shoulders. Because while I’m working to help someone else be healthy, someone is taking care of me. My eyes are blinking, my hair is growing, my heart is beating, my blood is running smoothly; I’m receiving unconditional love from every part of my body, from the planet, from everywhere! This is something I constantly bring up for myself. The sense of responsibility that I carry on my shoulders at times seems so big because I’m looking at it from the perspective of a small mind. When the mind is small, it’s like using a small radio, and the radio has a small antenna, which can’t really pick up a whole lot. It’s like listening to that radio while being shut in a closet, cut off from the rest of the world, shut in away from everything. When I allow myself to let the weight of responsibility off of my shoulders, the magnificence of that freedom allows success, not only in the area of healing, I also experience it in the area of meditation, and in my own life.

”Being in the Guiding Qi program with Master Nance has helped me to better understand qi, Qigong, and the importance and benefits of meditation. My meditations have become deeper and more meaningful. Working one-on-one with Master Nance has allowed me, in a safe and caring environment, to ask the questions that are pertinent to me and my journey. Thank you Master Nance for creating and sharing the Guiding Qi program.”  Knk

“In following the process of Guiding Qi, one gains access to an internal source of guidance, a source that steams from the very Intelligence that animates all of life.  My life has been transformed by such guidance, and the more intimate I become with this Intelligence the more effortless life becomes. I am very grateful to be engaging the process of Guiding Qi and look forward to seeing what this journey has in store”.- Otis
