Stuck in Suspension

Qi, our vital energy force

By Chris SienerPublished about a year ago 1 min read

Ever felt static, all your

potential energy

stuck by your own inertia.

What’s the matter?

I can’t say,

as we have so many

environment forces

holding us at bay


However, to help me

with my stagnation

and this feeling of

floundering suspension

I’ve offer this saying …

“the qi follows the mind

and the mind follows the qi.”

Thus to help rekindle

our kinetic energy

and rebound from

any depression of spirit

Consider paying attention

to what causes

your points of tension

and reduce or remove

these stressor interactions

Breath deeply and

take care of yourself

whether by a healthy

release of emotion

or relinquish of

penned up frustration


Envision your

exercise to relieve qi stagnation

By Vidar Nordli-Mathisen on Unsplash

as a smooth flow of energy

helps foster

a happier and healthier life.

Don’t know about you, but I’ve feeling a bit stagnant and having trouble coming to grips on what might be the best medicine to help relieve my “state of suspension”. Hope these thoughts may help you as well.
