 Qi Gong Notes.
 Qi Gong Breathing:Breathe in through the nose while exhaling through the mouth.  That is why we have hair in our noses and not in out throats.   Movement and postureExample:

Perform the movements in sync with the breathing.  Inhale while raising the knee, and forearm and exhale when lowering the knee, bending the leg and lower the forearm in front of your face. All the while keeping your spine straight and the weight on the proper foot.

Focus and count from 1 to 10 while exhaling.  Imagine the numbers appearing in front of you as you count.  If you loose your place or get distracted, pick up at about where you think you lost track.  DO NOT START OVER WITH ONE.  The mystery and key to any meditation is NOT TO STAY CENTERED OR FOCUSED, BUT RATHER TO ALWAYS RETURN TO CENTER OR FOCUS.  For it is impossible for any one in this universe to stay centered.  Centered implies a stationary position and there exists no such thing. A cyclist does not reside in perfect balance.  See but not see, hear but not hear, smell but not smell.  Be aware yet focused on one thing.  See the numbers as you breath.  Soon you can shift your focus to feel the sensation of O2 enriched blood pumping through your entire body as you breathe. 

After a while you will be able to focus and return to center easily, then you may focus on something of interest.  Like where did I put my keys last night?

 Empty MindTo exercise the mind in contemplation.   Focus on a subject or matter.This takes time so start with counting numbers 1 to 10, then graduate to a single question.
