Falun Gong Can Help Prevent A Person From Relapsing In Addiction

without comments

Falun Gong, also called Falun Dafa, is a traditional Chinese “cultivation system” or spiritual movement. This practice was first introduced in 1992 in China by Li Hongzhi. It was labeled a “heretical” practice and banned by the communist Chinese government in 1999. There are several news accounts of thousands of Falun dafa practitioners being imprisoned, tortured, and even killed by the Chinese government.

In its espousal of absence of rituals in daily worship and greater emphasis on theology and morality, Falun dafa is very different from other schools of qi gong. Its core tenets are truthfulness, compassion, and forbearance. It has been instrumental in transforming the lives of millions around the world and has redefined the existing schools of qigong schools to promote wisdom and good health.

Falun Dafa practitioners are prohibited from engaging in homosexuality, pre marital sex, drugs, alcohol, and smoking as part of the movement’s emphasis on morality and ethical behavior. They habits tend to defeat the goals of the practice and are considered to bring about negative Karma.

People who practice Falun Dafa should constantly strive to harmonize with their own being and with the universal tenets of truthfulness, compassion and forbearance. This is what cultivation essentially means. Falun dafa is comprised of five sets of exercises with gentle movements that are easy to learn and meditation to help one attain this harmony. These exercises are merely a supplement and the primary objective remains the cultivation of oneself. Besides having a profound inner meaning, they are very good ways to alleviate stress and anxiety.

The Objectives of the Exercise

The exercises’ primary goal is to imbibe energy within a short period of time whilst alleviating anxiety and stress.

The movements are easy to learn and simple and are all focused on all the meridians (energy channels) in the body. The exercises are designed to expand and open all meridians circulating through the body in order to promote the smooth flow of energy in the body especially in areas the flow is blocked. Practitioners can hope to gain from these exercises and increase their levels of energy levels within a short period of time.

The exercises open up of the energy channels that will help boost one’s well being and stamina. They can also assist in the elimination of negative energy from the body and helps the mind focus on positive thoughts. Bu the most important aspect of the exercises is its emphasis on breathing and the gentleness of the movements. These two aspects help reduce the stress levels and anxiety in someone who has quit an addictive substance very recently. The exercise’s spiritual dimension can also help people from relapsing to their addiction.
