Overcoming Addiction By Practicing Falun Dafa

I know a drummer who has played many years for a few but well known rock bands. He told me that there was just a single thing that kept him from being trapped into alcohol and drug addiction.

For anyone who has been addicted to a substance, it is a very difficult process to break free of the addiction. Realizing that you have a dependency on one or more chemicals can be a disheartening awareness and the shock can be so powerful that some individuals are likely to go into denial about having the habit.

Trying to prevent your relatives and friends from finding the truth can lead to a lot of deception both for the people you love and for yourself. This is quite a heavy burden to carry. Any individual with this problem will be scared of the truth and wouldn’t want others to know as well. They may fear being judged or how they will treated by their friends or family after learning of the problem.

Then there’s also the need to deal with the physical component of your addiction. Chemically, the brain may find it very hard to cope with an addiction. As the substance tends to unnaturally raise the levels of certain chemicals, the brain needs to adjust by producing less of those chemicals. Then, when the effects of the substance weakens, the brain is stuck with less of the substance present than before it was introduced artificially. This results in a flat, down state.

The contradiction between the lows and highs, the downs and ups can be amazing and raises further the drug’s desirability within the thoughts and mind of the addicted individual. The brain may require even more of it to feel the same way it felt as the initial exposure the next time the drug is taken.

This causes the brain to manufacture naturally even less of the chemical, generating an even deeper low. This cycle is maintained goes on until the addicted individual realizes that he cannot function or live without the drug.

It’s is easy to be aware of the difficulty of the situation facing the addicted person. The deeper becomes the addiction, the harder and harder it is to escape.

Going back to our rock star friend, he discovered a way out. It was Falun Dafa, an Oriental healing practice designed to improve the character and meditation practice. Lots of people have discovered it to be a very powerful way to improve and/or maintain the health of the mind and body.

I recommend reading an interesting book about the healing powers of Falun Gong. This book is entitled Falun Gong Stories – The Journey to Ultimate Health. There is a volume of subjective evidences about peoples’ experiences with Falun Gong.

Because of Falun Dafa, our hero drummer now lives an alcohol or drug free life.

Anmo Gong And Self-Acupressure To Maintain Health And Cultivate Oneself

Very few people have ever heard of anmo gong, which is a shame, as it’s one of the best ways to maintain health and cultivate oneself.

In Chinese, the word ‘Anmo’ traditionally means massage, although today, the Chinese now use the term tuina to describe massage. The word ‘gong’ roughly means something ‘practice’ or ‘work.’ Hence Anmo Gong means the practice or work of self-massage.

Anmo gong is sometimes called ‘do-in’ in Japan although it tends to be based on quite basic physical techniques without involving too much qi or internal work.

You can compare Anmo Gong as some type of Qi Gong that uses self massage and acupressure methods. Actually, most Qi Gong and Tai Chi styles contain some forms of self-acupressure albeit in a limited amount; in Anmo Gong however, one specifically uses acupressure as a major component of the technique.

This has several advantages and can be like being able to give yourself a regular tune-up where and when needed. Most acupuncturists teach acupressure to their clients to bolster the benefits of their therapy. For the maintenance of well-being and health, it can also be performed as a regular practice.

An Anmo Gong set of exercises in its most basic form consists of acupressure on just two or three pressure points. More involved routines would likely be comprised of stretches, breathing techniques, or basic ‘qi gong’ like motions. The exercises may involve more spontaneous elements in which you allow yourself to be guided to do whatever you feel needed at that moment or they can be very structured.

This type of activity can normalize and strengthen your energy, balance your emotions, and bolster your immune system. Based on the selection of points and the type of routine, it can be relaxing or invigorating, long or short, gentle or strong. Actually, in terms of what you do, the choice is infinite, and one can customize their practice based on the specific preferences and needs.

Talking to a qualified Chinese medicine practitioner in Tarzana or reading a good acupressure book for some specific advice is the simplest way to start. Just by using basic acupressure techniques for a minute or two on a single point every day can generate great benefits even if you don’t have time for anything else. You could, for example, utilize the Stomach 36 point (St 36, sometimes called the ‘wonder point’) located on the lower leg to attain profound health-boosting benefits. This indeed is a fabulous way to start exploring anmo gong and self-acupressure.
