Body Signals of High or Low Qi / Ki / Chi / Vitality

The subjective calibration of Qi, √Član Vital, or Life Force Energy is binary: what you do, eat, look at, talk about, think about and so forth, is either enlivening, or draining. 

Body awareness lets you know clearly.

When enlivened and vital you notice one or more of the following:


- Flow. Sensations of movement, fluidity, energy
- Pleasure. Movement is pleasurable
- An equal distribution of body temperature
- Expansion. You feel taller, wider, spacious.
- Breathing is full, and soft on the top of the inhale and the bottom of the exhale
- Clarity
- Creativity - you get novel ideas with ease
- Joy - you laugh and smile naturally
- Inspiration and insights


With diminished vitality, you may notice one or more of the following:


- Solidity. Parts of the body feel congealed, stiff, stuck
- Movement is restricted and uncomfortable
-Unequal distribution of body heat. For example, hot head, cold hands and feet
- Contraction. The overall feeling smaller, hunched, tight, constricted. For example, constricted breathing.
- The breathing feels hard on the top of the inhale and the bottom of the exhale
- Foggy brain. Extreme fatigue feels as if you are drunk, confused, spaced out
- Difficulty imagining and generating new ideas. Example: writer's block
- Low mood, pessimism
- Difficulty planning or envisioning for the future
