When our internal organs are strong and healthy, we radiate an energy field called Guardian Qi that protects the body from the environment. Strong Guardian Qi also enhances the immune system. Some qigong masters meditate outdoors in wintertime for hours by generating internal heat. They are covered by an invisible blanket of warm Guardian Qi and don’t catch cold. Guardian Qi acts like a bulletproof vest that also can protect from mental and emotional stress.
