Environmental Healing and Healing the Environment
An Interview with Qigong Master Qinyin
By John Chen
Master Qinyin is a renowned Qigong master and Feng Shui healing expert from China. She is the creator of Qinway Qigong and the founder of Qinway Qigong Institute in Oceanside, CA. Her Fundamental Healing Retreat, Special Abilities Classes, Individual and Feng Shui Consultations have become popular through word of mouth.
John: What do you mean by “environmental healing”?
Qinyin: A good environment with clear energy is itself a healing. Do you have this kind of experience — when you go to nature, such as a mountain or beach, you feel energetic all day long, but you may feel tired at other places after being there for just a short while? This is because the energy flows between humans and the environment.
John: How about “healing the environment”?
Qinyin: In a sense, this means to stop or reduce pollution. But it actually goes much deeper than that. Even if the environment is very clean, its energy level can still be low. In ancient China, we call this a Feng Shui problem, because the Five Elements (metal, wood, water, fire and earth) and Yin/Yang are out of balance. These Feng Shui problems have long-term effects on our health and well-being.
John: Your ideas about the interaction between humanity and the environment are very interesting. When did you start your research in this area?
Qinyin: I started paying attention to energy when I learned meditation from my maternal grandmother as a little kid. At the university, I majored in Eastern Philosophy, which speaks to the union between the human being and the universe. Through dedicated energy practice, ancient Daoists found out the human body is intimately intertwined with the universe. Everything that happens in the universe, for example, the explosion of a star, can affect our well-being.
As a product of the universe, the human body already has built-in structures, such as meridians and energy channels, corresponding to the universe. Later, I went to many Temples and holy mountains in China to learn how to harness this man-universe relation for our health through Qigong, healing and Feng Shui adjustments.
John: How important is the environment or Feng Shui to our health?
Qinyin: Once you set up a good Feng Shui at your home, it can benefit you for the rest of your life. When you come home tired, you can automatically recharge yourself. I always encourage my students and clients to improve their Feng Shui at home while they practice Qigong. Students who listen make bigger and more permanent progress in their health and energy level. I have been to many homes to do Feng Shui consultation. Most homes in America, even very expensive homes, have a lot of Feng Shui problems.
For example, I went to see the Feng Shui of a million-dollar house in the bay area. This house has a very good view. Furniture and even Five Elements seemed to be fine. But good Feng Shui ultimately depends on a good energy field. I saw the energy looked brown and upsetting coming from the underground of one room. I sensed that there were negative spiritual signals underneath, which was confirmed by the hosts. It turns out the house’s previous owner had chained a monkey in that room, that had later died there in anger. Through addressing this root cause, the good Feng Shui of this house became a reality.
John: What are the typical Feng Shui problems in American houses?
Qinyin: A place with good Feng Shui should meet the following conditions, (1) A harmonious collection of universal energy signals, such as the completeness and balance of the Five Elements; (2) Energy field in the house, including underground, the neighborhood, people and pet in the house, even previous owners. (3) Furniture’s spiritual energy properties and furniture placement. (4) Yin-Yang balance should compliment homeowners’ health characteristics. (5) The absence of old, stagnant and disease energy. (6) The absence of negative spiritual signals.
John: How do you help people correct their Feng Shui problems?
Qinyin: I do Feng Shui consultation more by intuition and spiritual guidance rather than textbook prescriptions. For example, someone may be very attached to an old piece of furniture for an emotional reason, but I can see its aura is not good, and it may even carry old, unhappy disease signals. To keep the energy fresh, ideally you should set up a universal energy receiver in your home so that new energy can circulate and replace stagnant energy continuously. Often, the use of an energized object (in-itiated by a high-level master) is very helpful.
Also, knowing the energy dynamics and shortcoming of your house is the first step towards reparation and improvement. Usually there are many rooms and details where you can make improvements. Finally, there is abundant energy in the universe, which can be accessed systematically through the ancient Chinese healing art Qigong. If you practice Qigong in your home regularly, you can gradually raise the energy level of your house. In short, the essence of Feng Shui is a harmonious integration of Heaven, Earth and the human being.
John: If I have to go to low energy places, how can I protect myself?
Qinyin: This is what we call “mobile Feng Shui”, including driving cars and staying somewhere temporarily. To achieve good mobile Feng Shui, you can practice Qigong to strengthen your own positive energy. Additionally, I recommend my students carry “energized objects” such as bracelets, amulets, and necklaces I have infused with universal energy. After initiation, these energized objects acquire a spiritual aura that can achieve the amazing effects of disconnecting negative energy.
My favorite thing to do is to play spiritual music in my car. Energy signals broadcast from an energized CD can help a lot. Similarly, I also channel universal energy into Yin-Yang Healing Tea to help people get energy quickly and to balance Yin-Yang.
