(Parent and cultivator speaking)

 

This is a perfect time to begin meditation again - and you actually have plenty of time:

 

When you put your child down you generally need to stay by their side for a time - this is a great time to meditate for a bit. 

 

As they grow older you will generally need to read to them and then as they drift off you will need to stay around for at least 20 minutes or more in case they open up an eye and find you gone and then they will cry and you have to start all over again.

 

So as they drift off - meditate 

 

You may only meditate for 20 minutes but you will find that if you meditate for an hour or more you will need less sleep and be far more able to handle stress of any kind. However 20 minutes will also help along these lines in the same way!

 

This will go a long way to a wonderful lightness of Being with your child and in life in general.

Thx, is there any special technique or is it just meditation?

I sat in full lotus or half lotus on a cushioned upholstered chair and may have also meditated in a full upright sitting position with my feet on the floor.

Meditation with awareness in the center of the head - an embodied non-trance meditation.

Hi, Mspitzer65:
Do the lotus sitting as suggested above but you must do slow deep breathing constantly. It is because you will need lots of oxygen for your body to perform all the activities of the internal organs. Even you are not sitting in a lotus position, you should do the slow deep breathing method as your normal breathing habit if you can. Breathing slowly means inhale and exhale slowly.
 

I am sure you will feel the difference in your health condition in few weeks or months.

BTW  Taiji is the best exercise to improve your health.

 Or maybe you are a beginning later! What is your gorgeous baby's name?  Ilumairen or taomeow is your best bet for women's help!  If, you do not get a quick response, try the front porch thread and gently, bump ilumairen awake, she rests because she has lived!  You may have much to share!

Welcome friend. 

 

You're sure to encounter some practical and helpful bits here.

My wife was spun deeply and penetratingly at the birth of our son.

We breathed and cried and hugged and laughed and ate and walked our way through it.

 

Peace and Love to your growing family from mine!

Thx for great responses, baby's name is Aiden Gene I plane on teaching him qi gong if I'm able to at young age. But I had a question hope u all can answer when I'm meditating with laying down or sitting lotus stance, I feel tingling every where back head arms legs and feet. Not sure if it's right what do I think about, I think about life energy but I am confused, I tried to find books on it but no luck as of yet.

I think most people get that tingly, legs falling asleep when they do sitting meditation, especially in lotus or half lotus.  Bit more unusual for it to be happening while laying down.  Perhaps a little stretching and light movement before hand could help.  Time helps.  You know what helps me keep it at bay longer, a trick I learned in Stillness Movement meditation- doing a rocking motion while I meditate.  A slight bob from the waist will allow me to sit longer.  That's after decades of trying to be still, I enjoy a slight bobbing. 

 

For sitting its good to prop up the butt a few inches with firm pillow.  In one room I have a yoga mat rolled up tight and sit on that.  For beginners its not so bad to lean against a wall a bit, but try to keep a straight back. 

 

Imo, for just sitting you don't need a whole lotta books and theory, no worries about life force.. just sit, quietly.  No worries, let thoughts settle.. what should happen will. 

 

Course as I guy I need gadgets & apps but most could and should live without them.

Hi Mspitzer65,
I was curious about the tingling feeling on my fingers when I do Tai Chi. In general, you will not get a good answer from any practitioners. Since this is a physical thing in the human body. Therefore, I did a research by reading books on physiology to understand the human body.

What I had found out is that when we do exercise the blood circulate faster than normal. Hence, the pressure is higher when the blood reach the capillaries. The reaction of the capillaries is contract to neutralize the blood pressure, otherwise the capillaries will explode. The tingling feeling was from the contraction of the capillaries. It is completely normal inside the human body. I am happy with this explanation. There is nothing to worry about.

Good luck! Happy Qi Gong practice!

 Yes, don't think about anything. You just do the abdominal  breathing like when you were laboring but very slowly. In other words, you just concentrate on your breathing with your nose not your mouth. Indeed, your body will do the rest.

The tingling is the beginning feeling of chi.  Some people don't experience it.  concerning energy flowing in your body, you can look for it, but don't dictate, don't tell it where to go or visualize.  You can focus on the posture, the feeling of energy, and your breathing, just breath normally with your belly.

Just confused on the meditating I guess. I breath inhale exhale out of my nose and use my belly. Am I missing something.

 

Not missing anything, just sit quietly, look for tension in your body to release, breath through your nose, relax your tongue, observe your posture.  If you catch yourself thinking try to turn it off, which is not easy, it takes little baby steps for that.  The more you are able to focus on your body the more it helps stop thinking.  Don't do any of that weird stuff that some people suggest.  You can hold your hands ina holding the ball posture though.

It means just breathe like a baby. You breathe in with your belly expanded and contract inward when exhale. 

PS You must do it slowly. Just breathe as deep as you can but don't force yourself to go too deep. Otherwise, you might get dizzy as a beginner.
