For most of us who live in the inner
hubs of busy cities, surrounded
by modern technology and its
invisible field which powers and
connects us, it's not surprising to learn
that we are operating within a system
that is severely depleted of qi or life force
Basically, our energy body acts as
a battery. This battery powers us on a
physical, emotional and mental level.
When our battery is full, we can easily
bring happiness and fulfillment into our
lives and we have a fertile ground to
harvest our wishes. When our battery is
low, we become anxious, lose clarity and
become overwhelmed by the vagaries
of life. Essentially, we feel helpless and
as though we are no longer in control of
our lives. Our mind becomes scattered,
and we obsess over trivial matters such as
a conversation that didn't go so well, or
a person in your life who is really 'getting
to you', or even something as simple as
that person in front of you driving 20km
under the speed limit. Trivial matters
that, when our battery is low, seem much
bigger than us.
Sometimes we even allow these
things to become us and we carry these
weighted moments of anxiety around
throughout our day like a heavy backpack
on our shoulders. We become obsessed
with our problems because we lack the
energy and clarity to see our way out.
Negative emotions, in particular, are
the most common cause of congestion
and depletion of energy in our front and
back solar plexus chakras. These chakras
act as the bridge between the upper and
lower energy centres and, if congested,
energies will not flow up and down
harmoniously. When this pathway is
congested, it blocks the energy flow
between the upper and lower chakras and
we become out of rhythm with our natural
flow of wellbeing.
The lack of emotional flow gives rise
to agitation, disharmony and anxiety and,
in turn, can be associated with disease
(dis-ease). Further adding to this block
in flow is day-to-day lifestyle habits such
as exhausting ourselves physically, eating
foods that contain little to no 'living
energy' and social habits such as
consuming alcohol. This leads to severe
depletion of our energy body over time.
Imagine trying to drive your car on
the freeway with very little fuel in the
tank and the small amount of fuel you do
have is contaminated. Essentially, this is
how we are interacting with the world --
using systems that are highly depleted
of life sustaining qi.
When we consider that everything is
energy we become particularly mindful
of the choices we make to fuel ourselves.
We become more aware of the foods
we consume, the thoughts we think,
the information we absorb and the
environment in which we live and work.
We feel a stronger sense of responsibility
to feed from and contribute to the
natural order of life by choosing energy
sources that are alive and are harmon-
ious to our system.
More people are questioning why
the energy that they are fueling up
on doesn't seem to leave them with
a sustainable sense of happiness and
fulfillment. Humanity is questioning, 'Is
there is another way?'
For some time, I have been practising
gathering tree energy, tapping into the
tree's energy field and storing this qi.
Using the secondary navel chakra, and
specialised containers to house and store
the energy, we can draw on this energy to
help feed others with processed earthly
qi. This is a highly effective technique in
fueling the energy body with the sweetest
of energy, something that is naturally
offered to us on our planet.
Trees, in a sense, are like wands on
Mother Earth. They convert light, water,
earth and air qi to produce the most
pristine of qi we can find on our planet.
Have you ever wondered why we
naturally like to commune with nature?
Have you thought about why many of us
like to escape from the city life at every
opportunity and head to areas over-
flowing with trees and natural life? We
instinctively know that we are running on
a low battery and we submerse ourselves
in a natural energy source to feed us with
Perth-based energy healer and meditation teacher
Chiu Chi Wen explains why a tree is a deep draught
of fresh air to the spirit.

particular, are the most
common cause of congestion
