My healing journey reached a turning point when I first got in touch with self-healing Qigong meditation. I was in my friend’s car. His wife showed me the Chinese book and said: “There is an old saying: Feed the medicine to the dead horse. Since you got the uncured disease, you may want to try this last resort. “ I looked at the title of the book: Life saving method. I agreed with her and told her that I would try and I borrowed that book about life, which finally changed my healing route of Myasthenia Gravis.
That day I had Taiji class with my friend Larry and his wife Ling, and almost at the end of the class, I felt fatigue suddenly in the leg muscles and I fell to the ground. I was in the last row of the class, I thought nobody saw me felling and quit the class quietly. My friend followed me and asked me what happened. I trusted him and told him I got a disease called Myasthenia Gravis and I felt very weak. Moreover my eyes could not see clearly. I thought I could not drive home safely. He was so kind and offered me a ride.
If I hadn’t attended the Taiji Kungfu class that day, or if I hadn’t fallen to the ground during Taiji practice, or I didn’t meet my friends in the Kungfu class, I might never have the chance to learn whole body meditation.
After I was back home, I gave up Taiji because I felt my legs were weaker and weaker as time went by. I also gave up all other sports I did before. My most favorite sport was ping pong . I could not see the ball clearly because double vision. I lost games to opponents all the time. They asked me: what happened, it was not your level.
I started to read the book on Nov 10 2007. I took notes of all the key points in the book. It was the new route of journey. I was optimistic. The book gave me the hope to go back to normal again.
The book talked about four things: 1) what is health? 2) why do we get sick? 3) how to use our own body to heal? 4) how to lead a well-planned life?
The self-healing concept was easy and simple: Tap into our inborn ability to heal through the whole body: physically, mentally and spiritually. The practice was also simple: just be still, and follow the posture for at least 30 minute, that was called one section.
But the truth was: It was hard for me. My strength was very limited, I didn’t like any postures like raise my hands or bending knees. Washing my face and even walking used up my strength.
However, there was an inner voice in my ear: I would like to have bright eyes again, I would like to recover my physical strength too. I need to have a try.
A week later I decided to find a coach in order to really master this method.
At that moment I was at the turning point in the healing journey of Myasthenia Gravis. I took the first step of self-healing journey.
