This is a word that is often used within the Martial Arts and Healing circles to describe a phenomenon that exists within us. But what is Chi? It is often spelt as “Chi/Qi/Ki” and can be described as a Universal Energy, Vital Life Force Energy or just simply Energy.

It has been long accepted and also claimed by leading scientists such as Albert Einstein that everything within creation is made up of an energy that is vibrating at different frequencies. In all living and sentient beings, energy flows through the body in pathways known as meridians. This energy also has an inseparable opposing force that are known as Yin and Yang.

The idea of Yin Yang dates back as far as 700 BC; it was first referenced in a famous text known as “Book of Changes”. The idea of Yin Yang is that everything that exists within our universe is made up of complementary opposite forces that are equal as illustrated within the Yin/Yang symbol. Each side has at its core an element of the other and neither pole is superior. Subsequently, an increase of one side brings a corresponding decrease to keep balance and harmony between the two forces.

The concept of Yin and Yang is at the heart of understanding the very nature of Chi which flows through everything in a negative and positive manner. So, Chi can possibly be described as an electromagnetic phenomenon, as a form of light energy, as a form of bio-electromagnetic energy or electricity.
