Transcription of the video, "Qi of the Summer Solstice."
Hi. This is Master Mike with
Let’s take a look at the summer
solstice and what that means for
when it comes to your Qi.
With the summer, we move to a
stable yang phase.
So yang is the more outward
active component of your energy,
as opposed to Yin, which is a
action of your qi.
When we approach the solstice,
we’re going from a very rapid
rise of the yang within spring
to a pretty stable state, like so
throughout the summer.
That doesn’t mean the same
value throughout the entire
summer, but it’s stable.
It bounces up and down, typically
within a particular range,
and is the most stable yang that
we have during the year.
The solstice itself, which is on
you should consider to be a flag
rather than a switch.
So when we hit an astronomical
event, there isn’t a magic
that’s flipped and suddenly
all the chi transforms in your
The qi within your environment, is a
product of the local plant life,
the local animal life, the
geography of your particular area
and your exact latitude and
All those things impact that qi.
As we approach the astronomical shift,
there is a steady reorientation
of that qi within your
The exact timing of that change
varies according to where you
Typically the window is about two
weeks before the event.
So two weeks before the solstice,
which I’m shooting this roughly,
seven days before the soulstice
and two weeks after.
So depending on where you are
located, this change can occur
anywhere within that time frame.
For some of you, it may have
already occurred, and you could
be in the stable yang of summer.
Now what does stable young mean
Well, it means that physical
activities are typically easier
in the summer,
but resting activities can be
Now what that means is that if
you have difficulty sleeping,
you are likely to have a greater
difficulty sleeping during the summer.
You are also likely to have a
greater difficulty simply relaxing
and resting to nourish yourself.
Many people will compensate for
that by increasing the time that
they spend in a relaxation phase,
which is perfectly logical.
So let’s say,
during a Yin phase, you could
and get fully recovered, and
nourished during a yang phase,
you would have to rest for two or
three hours to achieve the same end.
And the flip side of that is that
it’s much easier to do physical activities
during the yanng phase. It is easier to
get yourself to get up and do something.
So a phase like this is an
to take advantage of that yang
and go do the physical activities
that you want to do.
You’re going to be at a
disadvantage within the yin.
Now, the transition from one phase
to another, marked by solstice.
So the solstice let’s say,
that transition point can be
for a person to process,
especially if they are
experiencing, let’s say, health
difficulties, energy difficulties,
any one of those particular
The best way to address that
is to actually just do some
simple qi gong,
and that will get you
your system into a position where
it can more easily transition.
Ok, I hope this was a helpful tid bit for you.
