“Why is my qi cultivation not working? Accumulating qi is like saving money, its not just what you earn that counts but most importantly what you spend. There are many ways that we deplete and spend our qi, but there is one main culprit, that culprit is the emotions. Strong unchecked emotions and excessive thought deplete the qi faster than we can accumulate it. This is why a balanced practice must also include cultivation of the self. Cultivation of a stable emotional body is a precursor to spiritual/not self work and also slows down the depletion of our qi.” – Adam Mizner
