"Ki Breathing" by Koichi Tohei sensei (36)

Conclusion

Hello. This is Shinichi Tohei, Chief Instructor and President of Ki Society H.Q.
Koichi Tohei sensei is my master and also my father. In conclusion, I would like to introduce to you how my father uses Ki principles in daily life from my point of view as a son.

I realized Ki principles while growing up. However, until now, I did not realize that my father's education was based on Ki principles.

My father gave much attention to the way that people use words. He not only corrected my language usage, but if I said, “I cannot.” “I do not like it.”, or “It is difficult”, my father told me to revise my comment such to “I can” “I like it” “It is easy”. I could not understand the meaning of this at the time. However, this was training to change my subconscious mind to plus.
As a result, I developed the habit to think of everything in a plus way. This is very important for me. I do not ever think I am unable to do things, rather I think “I can” when I do anything. When you do anything, thinking “I can” or “I cannot” makes a big difference. My father never told me to think in a plus way. It became my habit without realizing it by daily training from my father.

My father corrected me many times, and it never bothered me. After I grew up I realized that he was checking if his state of mind was plus before he scolded me. This is because no matter how hard he scolded, I would accept his words in a plus way. He did not scold emotionally because he understood my mind also.
When my father scolded me, he never used the words which denied my integrity as a human being. He ended scolding with plus words such as “You can do it.” or “You are good if you keep this promise.” There is a big difference between finish scolding with minus words and plus words. It seems when my father scolded me, he checked if his mind was calm first.

There are two ways to educate people. One is “develop one's merits”, another is “correct one's defects”. Both are important. My father developed my merits mainly. I had many weak points, but he developed my merits first. Weak points are easy to see if we compare them to strong points. Therefore, we tend to correct one's defects first. To tell the truth, developing the strong points is a redeeming feature.
Human beings correct their own defects when they want to change. That is, when we extend Ki, we can grow. It is impossible to correct our own defects by someone else pointing out only our weak points. First, you need to recognize and promote the strong points of the child. By doing this, the child has a successful experience and develops self-confidence “I can do it”. If you start to correct weak points, the child will think “I cannot do it” and the child will lose his confidence.
I realize now but If I evaluate my father's education as based on Ki principles, I can say all of his education was application of Ki.

Ki does exist. Plus Ki brings plus result. Minus Ki brings minus Ki. If you wish growth of a child, first, parents need to be plus mind and fill their home with plus Ki. Minus Ki never brings plus Ki.
If you want your own growth and development, first, change to plus mind and fill your surroundings with plus Ki. This is important.
If an executive wishes growth of the company, first, the executive himself needs to be plus mind and fill his company with plus Ki. This is important.

If we wish growth of our society, it is important that each of us extends plus Ki. Ki breathing is the way to learn how to extend plus Ki always.
Anyone can do Ki breathing. It does not matter if you are old or young, men or women. If you start ki breathing, you can do it now without doing special training.
I hope many of you practice Ki breathing and society will be filled with plus Ki.

"Ki breathing" by Koichi Tohei sensei (35)

This article is translation of Koichi Tohei sensei's book, "Ki breathing (Ki no Kokyuho)". We will upload new article Monday.

Shinichi Tohei


Enjoy good health

Our living power brings us health. When we unify our mind and body and become one with the Universe, our living power will be activated. I showed you what is oneness of mind and body, and how to become one with mind and body in this book.
I have also explained Ki breathing and its benefits to your health and living with a healthy mind and body. Start Ki breathing from today.
I will ask you “to be healthy” at the end of the book.
There are many things that happen in our long life. A person who was weak in his childhood can became strong in his adulthood. Another man who was healthy until middle age can contract a disease.
Health of mind and body is affected by changes in our circumstances and living environment. Our mind and body is sometimes well, sometimes unhealthy.
Above all, you can live a healthy life for many years. Let us appreciate it and have confidence to live with oneness of mind and body.
It is impossible to measure health. You can find health through your life. You do not need to suffer comparing your health with others', or to the result of a medical diagnosis. No matter how things change, it is important to live in an age-appropriate way as the occasion may demand. This attitude will contribute to your health.
Your life has been changing through your life. Your life will continue to change continuously in the future. Your health will be changing also. If you have some worry about your health in the future, the worry might be because you cannot foresee your health. To eliminate your worry, practice Ki breathing.
Your breath reflects your changes. If you feel unhealthy, do Ki breathing and self-Kiatsu.
Continue Ki breathing with oneness of the Universe and calm. If you just do it, it will bring you healthy life.
I sincerely hope from my heart that you will use Ki for your health of mind and body through this book.

"Ki breathing" by Koichi Tohei sensei (34)

Kiatsu of the shoulder (To ease stiff shoulders, to facilitate plus mind)

Frozen shoulder was common among people in their 40s and 50s. There are many people who suffer from stiff shoulder at any age. If we maintain a correct posture, we can be free from stiff shoulders and pain. An unnatural posture can become the cause of stiff shoulders. Stiff shoulders make blood circulation poor, and can have an adverse effect on our head and eyes immediately.
If you feel stiffness during your work, try self Kiatsu. It will also help you to maintain a positive disposition.
To do Kiatsu on the shoulder, start at the base of your collar bone and shoulderblade to the back of your neck. When you press right shoulder, bend your head to left. Then, send Ki to your right shoulder using your longer fingers. Send Ki 15 to 20 seconds at each spot. Change the position toward back of the neck. (photo 4)

156_2 photo 4

If you finish the right shoulder, do the same thing to your left shoulder.
If you suffer from severely stiff shoulders, do Kiatsu several times. You will feel the difference after practicing Kiatsu several times. You will be able to bend your neck more easily than before. In addition, because your blood circulation improves, you will feel much healthier.

Kiatsu on the stomach (counteract the constipation and bad digestion, alleviate menstrual cramps)

When you do Kiatsu in the stomach area, press counterclockwise. Send Ki in the direction that food takes when passing through the intestines.
If you have digestive problem or pain with your abdomen, it is good for you to do Kiatsu to your stomach area daily. Kiatsu on the stomach helps to get over constipation, prevents many female diseases, such as uterine fibroid and endometriosis.
Good health of the stomach is the base of beauty. If you do not have constipation, do Kiatu on your stomach so that you can get fitness back to your mind and body.
To do kiatsu on the stomach area, lay on back first. Arrange the middle three fingers and put them very calmly on the top of your stomach.
Internal organs are very sensitive, therefore, you DO NOT push the stomach area forcefully. Also, you do not touch the navel.
The stomach moves up and down as you breathe. Match the movement and send Ki so that it naturally penetrates deeper.
Press each spot about one minute. Start from the top of the stomach, and continue to the bottom of the navel, lower abdomen, right side of the stomach (around appendix and upper appendix), upper stomach (around liver), left side of own stomach (upper belly), left side of lower abdomen always sending Ki with the movement of the stomach as you breathe.
If you have bad constipation, it is good to do this Kiatsu several times before going to bed or after waking up in the morning daily. If you do this, you can get over your constipation, and start the day feeling refreshed.

Kiatsu of the legs (to improve excessive sensitivity to cold, insomnia and poor blood circulation)

“Keep the head cool, keep the feet warm”
This is often said referring to your basic health. Cold feet are not good for our health.
If you have cold feet caused by excessive sensitivity to cold, try this Kiatsu.
First, lay down on your back. Arrange the three middle fingers together and put them lightly on the inguinal area. Find the place where you can feel your pulse and send Ki there.
Put your fingers calmly and count to 100. After counting to 100, release your fingers from the inguinal area and rest your fingers. Next try the same thing once more counting to 100. After this, do this one more time.
This Kiatsu takes about five minutes. The more you send Ki, the more your feet will become warm.

People who suffer from insomnia or have swollen feet need to do Kiatsu before going to bed. If you do Kiatsu on the legs and stomach both, it will help your circulation alot. If you do this Kiatsu everyday, you will never have cold feet.

Kiatsu of the hip (to remove pain in the lower back, also practice good positioning of the hip)

If you keep a correct posture, you will not get pain in the lower back unless you have other illnesses that cause you pain. Pain and feeling heavy in the lower back comes from a wrong posture or unnatural usage of your body.
If you feel something wrong with your lower back, you can ease the problem by doing Kiatsu. If you feel something wrong, try self Kiatsu soon.
To do Kiatsu on your hip, you do not have to lay down, but practice this sitting in a chair. By using both thumbs, put thumbs calmly where you feel pain or an uncomfortable feeling. (photo 5)

160_2 photo 5

After you do Kiatsu where you feel pain and around it, move your body slowly forward and backward without moving your thumbs. If you finish one place, move to another place and do the same thing.
Once you remove pain and the uncomfortable feeling in your hip, commit yourself to practicing a correct posture with oneness of mind and body. Posture with oneness of mind and body keeps you in good shape.
I explained to you how to do self Kiatsu briefly. Listen carefully to your body. If you find pain or something else wrong with your body, try self Kiatsu.
Also, maintain a correct posture. You can prevent many diseases by doing self-Kiatsu when you feel something is wrong.
It is not a bad thing to consult a doctor. However, before relying on medical care or medicine, it is important to do what you can do by yourself now and in the future. This is good for your health.
If self-kiatsu does not work well for you, your posture is unnatural so you are using unnecessary tension. This state is called, “Ki is not extending.”
The basic of self Kiatsu is oneness of mind and body. Therefore, before you start self Kiatsu, it is good to check your posture if it is natural and stable.

We have life power. As medicine is ineffective for a dead person, we should not forget that medicine itself does not cure diseases but life power does. Self-Kiatsu activates the life power.

"Ki breathing" by Koichi Tohei sensei (33)

This article is translation of Koichi Tohei sensei's book, "Ki breathing (Ki no Kokyuho)". We will upload new article Monday.

Shinichi Tohei


Chapter 6
To strengthen the Life power

Self-Kiatsu

I would like to describe “Kiatsu therapy (Kiatsu ryoho)” which I teach.
Kiatsu therapy is to send Ki into the body from the outside to strengthen a person's living power. If Ki is supplied from the outside, the person's life power strengthens which facilitates recovery from illnesses or injury.
When you do self-Kiatsu (You do Kiatsu therapy to yourself), it is important to practice oneness of mind and body, which is the natural posture. If you become tense as you press yourself, you cannot extend Ki. Anyone can do self-Kiatsu by putting their own fingers on their body while extending Ki and relaxing.

We have a word “teate” in Japanese. (literally means put hand on injury). When we feel ill, we put our hands on the part of the body that hurts naturally. At that time, we never push too hard on the painful place. You just send your mind (Ki) to the place where you experience pain. To put it plainly, this is Kiatsu therapy.
When the human body becomes sick, that part of the body becomes hard or painful. By putting your fingers while extending Ki on this place, it will become soft and the pain will gradually diminish.
If you do self-Kiatsu, the affected area will become warm. This is because the Ki of the affected areas will become activated and encourage blood to start to flow strongly.
There are several points which are important to do self-Kiatsu.

- Do self-Kiatsu with oneness of mind and body (Do self-Kiatsu with a stable and natural posture)
- Do not push too hard
- Do not knead (It is okay to move your own body without moving your fingers on the affected area)
- Think of lines instead of points. (Not only think about affected area but think about the flow of whole body)

Let me describe how to do self-Kiatsu which will assist you to maintain the health of mind and body. The first one is self-Kiatsu of the eyes. The self-Kiatsu, which is described in this book is a very limited application of Kiatsu therapy. Although only a limited application, I believe that it will still be of assistance to you in maintaining good health.

Kiatsu of the eyes.
(resolution of eye fatigue, visual recovery and have natural eyes)

As personal computer and cell phone become widely used, people often experience eye fatigue. Eye fatigue, bleary eyes, painful eyes etc. would appear especially for those who use personal computer extensively.
At this rate, it may result in cataracts and/or glaucoma while still at a young age.
First, please wash your hands before beginning any Kiatsu to your eyes.
Close your eyes lightly. Then, touch softly in the area between the eyeball and the tip of the bone in the upper part of the eye. Do Kiatsu to the bone. (photo 1)

153u photo 1

You can do Kiatsu right and left at the same time.
Never push the eyeball. Divide the area above your eyes from the inner corner of your eye to outer corner of your eye into five parts. Then, do Kiatsu 20 seconds to 30 seconds to each part, beginning from the inner corner of your eye moving to the outer corner of your eye.
Next, line up your fingertips with your index, middle and annular finger. Then, do Kiatsu to this area for 30 or 40 seconds. (photo 2)

153d photo 2

If you do this Kiatsu, Kiatsu will take about five minutes. You will feel that your eyes are refreshed compared to how it felt prior to Kiatsu.

I do Kiatsu on my eyes everyday. Thanks to this, I can see things very clearly at my age. My eyes at one time were not very good. The doctor diagnosed my eyes as having cataracts. However, I did Kiatsu everyday and got well in three months.
If you start Kiatsu of your eyes everyday from now, you can keep your eyes healthy. Not only will it keep your eyes healthy but Kiatsu makes your eyes and expression more attractive.

Kiatsu to the head
(resolution of migraine headache, improve the concentration level)

There are many people who are suffering from migraine headaches and feel heavy in the head, feel disoriented, etc.
Any disorder of the head area may be caused by a variety of serious diseases. Any disorder of head area affects our health very much. Therefore, we need to take care of any problems.
If you feel the disorder in the head area, you will find that the area around the base of your neck becomes hardened. This hard area compresses blood vessels inside of the cervical spine. This constricts the blood flow to the head, and it causes a decline in your ability to think, may cause headaches, or other problems.
People that have bad posture, especially those who's head is positioned unnaturally, always compress blood vessels inside of the cervical spine. The area that is hard will disappear by Kiatsu. Posture affects our health in significant ways.
When you do Kiatsu to your head, press the edge of the bone at the lower occipital region upward toward the center of the brain, from the bone behind the right ear to the one behind the left ear. (photo 3)

155_2 photo 3

When you press the right side, use your right thumb. When you press the left side, use your left thumb. Send Ki upward toward the head.
Press the right side of the head moving your thumb 5 times on that side, and the left side of the head in the same way, about 15 to 20 seconds in each spot.
If you have a lot of tension, repeat this Kiatsu several times. After finishing Kiatsu, you will feel that your head is lighter and you will feel more relaxed,
Women who suffer menopausal symptoms sometimes have a large hard spot around the seventh cervical vertebra. This is often one of the features of menopausal problems. Sometimes, we can see their hard spot in this area. In this case, use the long fingers (index finger, middle finger and ring finger) and press side of the neck. Press the right side of the neck with the right hand, the left side of the neck with the left hand at the same time. While you are sending Ki to your neck, slowly move your neck forward and backward, left and right.
The blood circulation of your neck will improve and the hard spot will become soft. This will ease menopausal problems.

Maintaining a Positive Subconscious

A Short Instruction:

The purpose of this kind of article is to practice and validate the Ki principles (Mind moves body) which are the foundation of Ki-Aikido in your daily life. Therefore, it has no meaning if you just read it without practicing it.

The fundamental method of mastering anything is practice. However, not just practice, but it is also important to validate how one has changed as a result of the practice.

It is easy to lose what you have learned without practice. On the other hand, you will never lose what you have learned through practice and validation. Therefore, please read, practice, and validate the contents of my article at least a month.


Maintaining a Positive Subconscious

When performing Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido techniques, as is all areas of life, it is important to believe in your abilities.

This is what we call "positive thinking." The importance of positive thinking is not a recent development; it has been recognized since long ago.

However, almost no one addresses just how to make your thinking positive. Koichi Tohei Sensei has, for half a century, taught people throughout the world that how to do something is more important that how to talk about it. The manner we do things in is crucial in making our thinking positive.

Often, people who exert themselves to make their thinking positive find they cannot do it easily. There are also people who find that their efforts only result in more stress.

First, I would like to establish the definition of the "positive" in positive thinking.

Truly being positive does not mean that only the self is positive. It does not mean interpreting things in a way that that is convenient for us. Doing so leads to collisions with those around us, and only makes situations worse.

Truly being positive means being universally positive. This means that others become positive, as well as ourselves. Even if we apply all our energy and somehow manage to become positive, this positive state means nothing if it is self-centered.

A truly positive mind is a universally positive mind.

With that defined, let's move ahead.

The human consciousness contains both the conscious mind, which involves what we are conscious of in the present, and the unconscious mind, which we are unaware of. We frequently use the word "consciousness" to refer only to the conscious mind.

The subconscious is the storehouse of the mind, the accumulation of the knowledge we have acquired from past experiences. Even when memories fade, the subconscious holds on to everything. The conscious mind is formed using materials drawn from the subconscious mind. Therefore, trying to make the conscious mind positive will be a waste of effort if the storehouse of the subconscious is full of negative thoughts. Wasting effort in this way leads to stress.

Maintaining constantly positive thinking requires not mettle or force of will, but a continual effort to steadily develop a positive subconscious.

Let us now address a concrete method to accomplish this. There are several methods, but I would like to show you one for now.

First, let me discuss the use of language. By this, I mean making the words we use positive, or putting positive ki into words as we speak them.

We speak negative words without even realizing it. Saying that we "can't do" something or that something is "difficult" are the best examples of this. Saying that we "couldn't do" something, or that it "was difficult" after trying it is one thing, but there is absolutely no need to say that we "can't" or that it's "difficult" before trying.

The words we speak, the closest to us, enter deeply into our subconscious.

If we speak negative words, they will have just as negative an effect on our subconscious. If the subconscious becomes negative, our daily consciousness becomes negative as well. Once we understand this, we can become afraid to use negative language.

But when we say something negative, we can replace it by saying it again as something positive, so long as we do so without delay, and without feeling disappointed. It would be something like this:

"I don't think I can do that…" (Ah! I shouldn't say that!)

"If I (do such-and-such), I'll be able do that!"

I urge those who think that the subconscious cannot be made positive this easily to try it themselves. If you can accomplish this, not just for a moment, but all day and every day, it will be something amazing.

Next time, I will tell you about another concrete method for making the subconscious positive.

Let's practice and validate the following:

[Things to practice]

Confirm the definition of being "positive" (not just analyzing things in a way that's convenient for oneself)

Check whether the words you speak on a daily basis are positive

Always speak positive language; if you speak something negative, replace it at that instant with something positive

[Things to validate]

Whether speaking with positive language has become habitual

How people's reactions to you have changed

How your dreams have changed
