Shinkiko by Dr. Masato Nakagawa
Here is some information provided by the Shinkiko Association, Japan. The founder is Nakagawa Sensei, who trained me (author) in my "Mastery" Shinkiko Training
What is Ki: What is KI? Ki is life energy - the energy that encompasses all matter, both animate and inanimate. The Chinese refer to Ki as 'Chi', while in India it is known as 'Prana'. Ki is based on the view that the world is a dynamic, interconnected whole made up of energy manifesting into a specific form within a particular vibration and frequency. All living things are in constant interplay with a series of interwoven energy fields, and our bodies are no exception. Subsequently, disruption within the energies of the human body often results in sickness and disease. By replenishing Ki energy we can revitalize our energy flow and enable the body to function at an optimum level.
What is Kiko? Ki can be manipulated with Kiko - specific breathing exercises, body movements and postures (Similar to Tai Chi), Kiko is used to remove disordered energy from the body and to gather and store more Ki energy.
Is this something new? Kiko originated in China and has been practiced for over three thousand years. Is Kiko hard to do? These exercises are easy to do. They combine flowing movement with mindful awareness, a moving meditation. How will I benefit from Kiko?Kiko increases strength and flexibility as well as concentration and memory. Your level of stress and anxiety will lessen
What is SHINKIKO? Shinkiko is divine cosmic energy, a healing Ki that abounds in the universe. Any person who is healthy in body and mind can attain the faculty to emit this energy by elevating his or her spirituality, not by learning special skills or teachings.
Healing the Body through the Hearts Shinki is a Ki (Chi) energy with a high frequency of vibration and has the vibration type of healing and love. Shinkiko is a type of Medical Chi-gong that is practiced by synchronizing with this energy. Perhaps one of the most unique aspects of Shinkiko is that there are no physical exercises or training involved in learning it. By raising the level of consciousness through the growth of the heart, one naturally learns to transmit Shinki energy, the vibration of love and healing that is abundant in the Universe. Shinkiko is not just for healing illnesses. By living with this energy, one has the potential to not only heal illnesses, but also to heal one's life and the surrounding environment.
On Earth Today, we are facing many serious problems. These problems stem from the same source; the consciousness of the human race which only looks out for the benefit of "each individual". Our future is hopeless if we continue to live with this level of consciousness. In the 21st century, Ki energy will be applied and used in a variety of fields, and will create a world where all beings on Earth can live in peace. Shinkiko is helping in creating this environment.
At the present time, Ki energy has not been understood by conventional science. But in recent years, many scientists have been researching it from a variety of perspectives and are starting to see the light.
In the last few years, Shinkiko has been spreading rapidly in the practice of conventional medicine. Many doctors have been incorporating Shinkiko into their clinical practice, and have seen great results. It is now starting to receive a significant amount of attention within the medical community.
"Illnesses are what we created in our own hearts. It is the way we live that influences the Ki energy in and out of us. And the parts of us that are not aligned with the law of nature disturb that flow of energy and will manifest as illness, accidents, or other misfortunes.
Such things are valuable messages from the universe telling us that there is something wrong with the way we live (posture of our hearts). Once we realize this, the illnesses will turn their course and begin to heal, and all other aspects of life will change towards the positive direction."
