It's a whole video in Chinese. Doesn't make for much discussion for those of us that don't know Chinese :)

Hi anshino23,

 

Perhaps you may like to perceive 'jing <=> chi <=> shen' in parallel with the chakras...

Perhaps I am both if it was self proclaimed and not an insult.  ;)

自我健康療法 : Heath auto healing method
系列一 :  System 1
生活應用篇 : Daily application

氣功 : Chi Kung

第一集 : Chapter one

Human lives in the universe, existing with nature. If the change in the body integrated with the action of nature, then human will not get sick. Someone thought that the human chi (人氣, ran chi) is the root of life in the human body.

人在氣中 : human is in chi
氣在中人 : chi is in human
自天地至於萬物 : From heaven and earth (the universe) to all things
無不須氣以生者也 : None of them is not a dependant of chi for survival.

Human lives in Chi is like a fish lives in water. Away from the water, the fish will die. Human life is the same way. Ran Chi is the root of life. Also, ran chi is the vital energy for the human body. Homeostasis is the goal pursued by my human. Today, we want to introduce the
穴道刺激法 : Acupressure method

氣功健康法 : Chi Kung health method

The human body is like a building structure. The bones are analogues to the steel beams. The muscles and skins are like the inner layer and the outer wall. The internal organs are like the building materials. The vessels and nerves are the communication tools to manage how the setups are being used.

@ 2:40
精氣神

They are the vital elements of the human body.

From the Classic of Tai Ping.

@ 3:08
精(jing)

What is Jing?
In the human body, Jing is the cream of the crop. It is the basic root of life.

@ 3:14
氣(Chi)

What is Chi?
Chi inside the human body is like the air on earth. Even though, it is invisible, but it does exist. However, the chi inside the body is different from the air that we breathe. In the modern time, chi has different levels of descriptions.

@ 2:45 from left to right.

Chi has Nourishment (養份) + Oxygen (氧氣) + Electrical Energy (電能) + Light Energy (光能)

Nourishment + Oxygen are transported by blood circulation (血液循環).
Electrical Energy + Light Energy are transported by meridians (經絡脈運送).

Nourishment are from the foods we eat. Oxygen is from the air we breathe to go into the body. They are transported by blood circulation.

Light and electrical energies are transported by the invisible meridians. This is a myth. Actually, the meridians are the nervous system. If one compare both systems, one will see that the meridians are riding exactly on top of the human nerves. However, everybody has the Light and electrical energies but only the levels of magnitudes are different.That is why some are stronger and others are weaker.

@ 4:42

神(shen)What is shen?
Shen is the mind(, heart) which control the thinking department.
Shen is xing() which is the prenatal shen.
