Be the Change You Wish to See
by Ricardo B Serrano, R.Ac.
"Awareness and intention are powerful factors for personal transformation and healing."
A personal healing reference to Mahatma Gandhi's quote "Be the change you wish to see in the world" is the metaphorical process of transformation of a cancer survivor from a cocoon to a butterfly by Qi cultivation using Qigong and herbs.
The following write-up will provide the answer.
One of the founders of the Cancer Recovery Society in China, told this story during a lecture about the use of Qigong for recovery from cancer and other diseases:
"When people are diagnosed with a life-threatening disease they are often exhausted in body, mind, and spirit. It is as if they are forced to crawl slowly and begin to think of their world as a terribly limited place and their experience of life as scary and depressing. I liken this to the body level of the Three Treasures – Jing, Qi and Shen, the stage of the caterpillar. At this level we are simply looking for a way to survive. We focus on the body, the most limited aspect of ourselves. When we start to do Qigong (and take herbs) we begin to change because we get a sense that our self is not limited. The simple practice of Qigong (and taking herbs) begins a process in the body that is wonderfully healing. The pressure of the experience of the disease plus the support of Qigong friends creates the permission to take on the challenge of becoming a new person.
The caterpillar uses the Qi to spin a cocoon. In our group work with Qigong (and taking herbs) we use the building up of the Qi to create the safety and courage to be reborn. This is our cocoon. We meet to do our practice of Qigong and we have tea and discussion afterward that we call social oncology. You know that when the caterpillar is in the cocoon, its former self is transformed to a new being. In our process of recovery from disease, we often explore uncomfortable things about our lives, talk about things we have kept hidden, and improve our sense of humor. Through this transformational process we create a new self. Just as the caterpillar constructs a cocoon to become a butterfly.
Eventually, we emerge with wings to fly. Many in the Qigong groups recover their health and are reborn as new people who have a completely different attitude about life. Some of our members do not recover but through the Qigong process and group support they become butterflies too, and fly free in a different way. The goal in our work is not just to cure diseases, but to heal. Sometimes healing does not accomplish a cure. But still the person is like a butterfly because he or she has the love of the Qigong group to support a needed transformation. Through Qigong and the love and support of our friends, we gain the courage to transform from a caterpillar, to enter the cocoon and be liberated as a butterfly."
The best answer for what to expect in Qigong (and taking herbs) is to have no expectations. If your mind is crowded with expectations, it cannot be free to perceive what else is really there. In reality, one can learn Qigong from a mentor who is someone who agrees to foster your growth and learning.
Most forms of Qigong have a broad range of benefits and it is through regular practice that one will gain from it. When you discover the Qi, watch it, and cultivate it, let it teach you and you will learn something everyday. Just like sunflowers that come from one seed and create hundreds of seeds that then create hundreds of sunflowers that create thousands of seeds - through your expanded awareness and your practice, your Yuan Qi will multiply.
The eight extraordinary channels are one of the most fascinating aspects of the acupuncture channel system. These channels are the bridge between prenatal and postnatal influences in our life. The eight extraordinary channel’s terrain is Jing, essence, and source Qi. These channels influence the yuan, or deep layers of our body, mind and spirit.
The pathways of the eight extraordinary meridians are rooted in the Lower Dantian / Mingmen.

"The seven books Return to Oneness with Shiva, Meditation and Qigong Mastery, Return to Oneness with the Tao, Return to Oneness with Spirit, Keys to Healing and Self-Mastery, Return to Oneness with Shiva and The Cure & Cause of Cancer comprise all together my Master Pranic Healer thesis for the Integral Studies of Inner Sciences." – Ricardo B Serrano, R.Ac.
The seven books in You Hold the Keys to Healing cover the basics of advanced combination of meditation and enlightenment Qigong forms for attaining oneness with higher Self or Self-realization - Atma (Soul) Yoga of Immortality - to become a self-realized being (Zhenren) or Srivatsa symbolized by Swastika.
The word Swastika is Sanskrit: swa means "higher self," asti means "being," and ka is a suffix. The word may be understood as "being with higher self." It is also known as srivatsa.
It has an especially strong connection to Buddhism in India, which was then transmitted to China. The srivatsa is often found on Buddha sculptures, and it is believed to be a sign displayed by Buddhas to the people who first depicted it — a symbol with profound and heavenly meanings. It has been understood over the ages as a symbol of good luck, a symbol of purity, and other positive attributes.
