Power of Chi-Lel
Connection - Ginny's Story.
Introduction: NEVER underestimate
or overlook the power of the mind-body connection
when you become ill. The power to heal yourself
begins when you look deeply into any unresolved
issues that you carry within you. By refusing to
hide behind poisonous prescription medications,
drugs, alcohol or acid food,
and by facing the issues head on, THAT is when you
begin to truly heal!
Many, if not all
illnesses - and so called accidents - are created
by unresolved issues,
some dating back to birth. Unresolved issues and
emotional trauma manifest on a physical level
where they slowly corrupt the cells within your
body until YOU decide to release them, to let
This is a true story of
a brave lady who refused to give in to cancer - a
woman who faced her inner issues, released them
and healed her body of cancer. Ginny Walden turned
to Chi-Lel, the power of CHI - the natural life
force energy present within every living thing -
to heal herself completely.
The cancer healing
journey of a national champion swimmer,
Ginny Walden, Honolulu, Haiwaii.
Here is my complete Testimonial, up to date, as
As a child I was an avid swimmer and athlete.
When I was 17, I was training for the 1964 Olympics
and broke the national record for the 1500 meter
Freestyle. All my life I was health conscious. I did
not smoke or eat a lot of junk food. For a period I
drank alcohol lightly. My diet was full of
vegetables and fruits and not a lot of meat, but I
did eat dairy, sweets and red meat. When I was 21 I
moved from NY to Santa Fe, NM to pursue my calling
as an artist. Now at 53 I have been a sculptor,
classical and flamenco guitarist, and an
unconventional teacher for over 30 years.
Then in August 1997 I was diagnosed with
Stage 3 Advanced breast cancer. Actually, 2
years before, my healing had begun. At that time I
let go of some destructive patterns in my life and
began to feel truly happy. So when they told me I
had had cancer 8-10 years I couldn't connect with
the illness. I told my doctors that just because I
now knew that I had cancer for ten years didn't mean
I was going to stop being happy! So I began
treatment with a positive attitude. The oncologist
said with great seriousness that the AMA now
approves a positive attitude. I laughed and asked
"And how much does that cost?." A native American
shaman told me that if I knew I had cancer ( in
other words I am not in denial) and I could not
"connect" to it, then it has no home, no place to
land, and that it would leave my body. Also I went
to talk to Dorje, a Tibetan monk connected with the
Dalai Lama in Santa Fe. I asked him about cancer. He
said "Ginny, do not be fearful. Fear increases
illness. Do whatever medicine you choose, it
does not matter. Just be joyful, be happy! Do
what makes you happy!". This appealed to me so
I maintained a truly joyful attitude throughout the
next 9 months of treatment.
Acupuncture - Cancer
Being mystical by nature but also having an
inquiring mind I was praying to the Universe that I
would not have to go through treatment and was
searching through alternative therapies. The doctor
was strongly against this and said I would be dead
if I chose alternative. That was a strong fear
message and I wondered why he didn't just say "let's
try everything!". He said I had an aggressive cancer
and needed surgery, 3 months of chemotherapy
(Adriamyicin and Taxol, aŹ bit higher than normal
dose), stem cell rescue and 6000 rads of radiation.
I started praying and decided to begin acupuncture.
My acupuncturist (I called him my "real" doctor)
knew how to treat cancer patients. He suggested I
lower my high stress levels by taking his 'Mind Body
Stress Reduction program' which entailed a little
yoga, meditation and a body scan (1 hour a day) I
brought my stress levels down 60%. I also chose a
macrobiotic diet for breast cancer (Michio Kushi -
The Cancer Prevention Diet) and cut out dairy, red
meats and animal fats, sugar, stimulants and foods
that create mucus. Then I went into surgery.
The surgeon did not believe in mastectomy. She said
cancer cells are left in the body anyway. Her
specialty was large breast tumors and I am grateful
for a small scar only 1.5 inches long! She took out
a tumor from my right breast the size of an orange
and found 21 out of 23 lymph nodes positive. She had
to sever the nerve in my right arm to get the lymph
nodes. I was diagnosed with a Grade 1 slow growing
cancer, ductal carcinoma, Stage 3 Advanced breast
cancer. I stopped chemotherapy after the first week
to research more alternatives. The doctor was
alarmed saying no-one stops chemo, but I insisted I
needed 2 weeks to do more research on alternatives.
He did say I had a slow growing cancer so I figured
I could take off two weeks. But I could not find
anything that would convince my MIND that something
other would work, so I continued treatment.
Stem Cell Rescue
I sailed through 3 months of chemo with no nausea, a
good appetite, no diarrhea and my blood counts
stayed normal! I attribute this to acupuncture
(balancing of CHI) and his MBSR program
(also balancing CHI). The nurses were amazed
that my blood counts stayed normal. Then after a
short break, I started stem cell rescue. Meanwhile I
made a cassette of "Don't Worry Be Happy" by Bobbi
McFerrin and played it continuously daily to keep my
spirits up. Stem cell rescue is a rigorous and
dangerous procedure. I insisted in going as an out
patient to the clinic. I did not choose to be in the
hospital because I thought I might be more
vulnerable to infection there. This time they take
out 5 bags of induced harvest of stem cells through
a port in my neck and freeze them. Then they give me
3 High Dose Chemo drugs a day, 8 hours a day, for 2
days. After that supposedly a majority of cancer
cells( (IF they are there, they really can't
measure) are killed off (as well as all fast growing
cells like the lining of my digestive system and
white blood cells) and they give me back the stem
cells, hopefully" new blood". A good plan but
unfortunately many die from the procedure.
I got nauseus, fainted twice, couldn't eat,
got endless nosebleeds and internal bleeding. But I
laughed the whole way through it! It was so bizarre
and so outside my experience as an athlete and
healthy person I just couldn't relate to it. After
the High Dose Chemo they give the stem cells back
and it takes 10 days for the new blood to function.
On the ninth day I got a slight fever. Because my
white blood cell counts were below 50 (and maybe
one, since they cannot measure below 50) I had no
way to protect myself from infection so I was put
into the hospital. The nurses there said it was
unheard of to come in on the ninth day!
Connection - the Source of Illness Discovered
In the hospital, they told me I would be there a
month and a half or two before my blood counts would
rise to a safe level. I was in an isolation room
with red flags on the door to indicate I was
neutropoenic and vulnerable to infection. So I could
not have visitors and would be alone a lot. I said
to myself, I can do this, and proceeded to fix up my
room. It was 10 o'clock at night. All was quiet and
I went into the bathroom to wash from the sink. I
looked into the mirror and I saw Tweetie Bird. I was
bald for the second time, had lost 12 pounds, had
dark hollows under my eyes and pale skin. In that
moment a miracle happened.
My mother was unable to give me unconditional
love When I was 2 months old she threw me around.
Where does the fear go? Into the cells and it
stays locked there until someday I give myself
that unconditional love. I believe this is the
underlying condition that was my dis-ease. I needed to really love
me. In that moment I felt this deep
compassion for my body. Tears came down my cheeks as
I slowly and gently bathed my body the way a mother
would bathe an infant. I pressed the hot washcloth
against my skin with love and compassion. Each touch
was full of CHI (I was doing Chi-Lel and did
not know it yet.) Afterwards I felt lighter and
happy. I went to bed and I said to the Universe: "I
know I will get through this, and when I do I want
to help with healing others. There are too many
people suffering through cancer treatment. I want to
help. Show me how and I will do it. My life will
feel totally fulfilled. "Then I went to sleep and I
had a dream. The Dalai Lama came to me in a tall
triangular crystal. He had his hands in a praying
position and looked up at me and said "Now Ginny,
remember, BE JOYFUL!"
I woke up at sunrise that morning feeling
energetic and happy. I danced around the room
singing "Don't Worry Be Happy". The nurse came in
and took my blood as usual. The Italian doctor came
in to check the report. He threw his hands up into
the air in surprise exclaiming "WHAT!?" and the
nurses came running. He said "Yesterday her white
blood cell counts were 600, now they are 13,000! How
can that be?" The nurses said they had seen stem
cell rescue patients for 5 years and had never seen
this! The next day my counts were 22,000 and I was
sent home. I was in the hospital a total of 4 days!
How do I explain this? I believe it was CHI.
After this two people in my cancer support group
went through the same procedure. They both died.
Recovering from this I still believed that my body
could heal itself. I was looking for a common
denominator that could heal my immune system. When
you ask you get an answer. A friend said to try
Spinal Qigong. She had had a uterine tumor
(malignant) 15 years ago. She was taught by the top
master in the USA and she practiced 5 hours a day.
In two months she went through a lot of pain but her tumor disappeared
completely. She continued to practice for 2 years.
She never did any other treatment. To this day she
is cancer free. I thought that this was for
me. We did 20 minutes doing 4 exercises using
breathing and arm circular movements but there was
no engagement of the mind. I was weak from chemo
toxins. My knees and joints hurt, I got dizzy and
was very weak and found this difficult to do. Then
my acupuncturist gave me the video and book on
Chi-Lel Qigong. I watched the video. When I saw that
bladder tumor disappear in less than 40 seconds and
when I saw the students who were healed giving back
to others , I knew I had found what I was looking
for. I started practicing immediately. When you
find what you ask for everything begins to flow.
A remote friend of a friend called from L.A. to tell
me Luke Chan was doing a workshop there. She lived
10 minutes from the workshop, I could stay at her
house and use her extra car. All I needed was a
plane ticket. That week a sculpture sold and I went
to my first Chi-Lel Qigong Workshop. I beamed at
Luke the whole time. I felt energized, happy and
knowing in my heart of hearts that CHI was
the common denominator I was looking for. Luke took
me aside and gave me some advice. He said "Ginny,
because you believe in CHI and because I
know you will do the work, if you do THREE Wall
Squats a day for 100 days in succession, your cancer
WILL go into remission." He had seen it happen
The Power of the Mind
He also said because the video account of the
bladder tumor disappearing got my spirits up that I
could visualize those doctors' hands, Dr. Pang
Ming's hands and lots of hands delivering chi to me
while I am waiting on the bed for the radiation
beam. Then when the beam went on to see cobalt blue
sky coming into my breast area. I did this
faithfully each treatment. They told me I was
getting 6'000 rads (1000 rads will kill you if given
all at once!) over a period of 6 weeks, 5 days a
They said I would get severely burned and to
prepare. So I bought some Chinese burn ointment. At
the same time I re-discovered my spoons I had "bent"
15 years ago. I realized this was gross evidence of
CHI at work and this increased my belief. If
a thought could bring CHI into that spoon
and bend it, what would it be doing in my body to
cancer cells? So each day they zapped me 4 times
with radiation I visualized. I also had started my
100 day gong of :30 LCUPCD daily and attempting Wall
Squats. At the end of 6 weeks, the last day of
treatment, the tech looked hesitantly under my gown
and looked puzzled. She asked Ginny, you are hardly
even pink! Are you visualizing?" I said "Yes! Like
Mad!" and she said they had one other patient who
was a red-head with fair skin who didn't get burned
either. She went to a hypnotist. This is another
account of the Mind-Body connection and its healing
Chi-Lel Book or
In June 1998 my treatment was over and I began
to repair myself, taking supplements, doing the
Blood Type diet, resting and practicing Chi-Lel
faithfully every day. I was doing :30L CUPCD in the
morning and evening, 10-25 Wall Squats daily with
some trouble with joint pain from chemo toxins, and
La Chi :30 daily (1.5 hrs) and slowly working up to
the recommended 3 hrs. a day for cancer. I was also
reading the stories of the 101 Miracles daily.
This sustained my belief and gave me the spirit to
get through the hard days.
Within 2 weeks after treatment I was swimming a mile
a day. A month later I made a steep 3 hour climb up
a mountain and was not even sore the next day! (As
an athlete I know that I get sore after a long
period of time with no exercise.) How could this be?
It had to be CHI unblocking in my body. Then
after 5 months practice I experienced pain in my
right breast where the lumpectomy was, pain in my
sternum bone, slight swelling under my right arm and
I couldn't extend my right forearm completely and
felt the fascia like tight runner bands, and there
was large swelling between my thumb and forefinger
(an important acupuncture point). What was this?
Cancer coming back? I felt the fear programming try
to come back in. Should I go to myoncologist? I
decided not to. I knew he would program my mind back
into that fearful place.
Wall Squat - move
up and down.
It is very difficult initially.
Instead I decided to have faith in the first
story in the book about Teacher Ren and how he held
his arms up for 8 hours and healed his heart. If he
could hold his arms up so long, maybe I could
attempt 30 of Push Pulls! So I started with that
form and the La Chi with Chi Massage on the breast
area using 30 continuing to do100 wall squats a day
(see image above),
and 30 LCUPCD twice daily. Then when I was doing the
Chi Massage I experienced the "chi worm" effect.
First my palm got so hot it felt like it like as hot
as an iron! I sent the Chi in with compassion for
the area, telling it it was ok, well, cured, cancer
gone. Then I felt this worm-like movement burrowing
through my breast tissue. Wherever it went the pain
disappeared. The Push-Pulls were very difficult to
do because I felt pain in my shoulders. I would do
as many as I could, then put may hands on my navel
and rest, then attempt more until I completed 30
minutes. Again, Teacher Ren's story sustained me.
After 3 weeks everything returned to normal. I had
healed myself! This was totally self-empowering.
Meanwhile people were coming to my house to join me
in the practice. Others began feeling results. We
practiced together using the video. I went to my
first retreat in October 1998 at Sedona. I broke the
barrier and did 45 Wall Squats. It was an
exhilarating workshop and I decided to become an
instructor. I increased my hours to three daily and
focused on Push-Pulls to prepare for my next
retreat. Meanwhile my medical reports showed no
evidence of cancer. I was in remission!
My femur neck bones however showed
considerable weakness while my spine was stronger
than normal for my age. The doctor was puzzled. I
figured it was Chi effects. At one point I was
determined to bring my blood counts back to normal
(after stem cell they stay at a lower range) and I
got "obsessed". Then my blood counts actually went
down! So Luke advised not to be obsessed because it
blocks the Chi. He said just keep doing it and
enjoying the practice and do not expect anything. I
took his advice.
Slowly I detoxed, hot flashes went away, I
slept soundly, my energy came back rather quickly,
my weight regulated. I experienced Chi effects like
pain in the ankles, joint pain, lots of sweats,
meridians sparking and popping and buzzing, tingling
in palms and surges of heat in several areas during
the day or night. Food tasted really good and my
appetite was normal. Two planters warts disappeared
which was an indication my immune system was well.
My heart opened , I still feel joy daily and like
everyone is my family.
- Visit to China
I went to the Glen Ivy Retreat in March 1999 and
became a certified instructor. I taught over 800
people in Santa Fe, New Mexico with many positive
results. Then I went to China with Sal Debari that
June for 2 weeks. We received healing Chi from 7
different Chi-lel masters. We met Jin Lao-Shi and he
looked at me and said I had healed myself of cancer!
( He had just healed 51 people in 50 days of
cancer!) I saw Sals swelling lymph node on his neck
disappear in ten minutes when Jin Lao-Shi sent Chi
to him. The masters said they would continue to send
Chi to me at 4:30 daily for one month when I
returned to NM. Each day I sat down and received Chi
from them and felt Chi tingles up through my palms
and all over my body all the way from China!
Then I got the calling to move to Hawaii to continue
my healing and to teach Chi-Lel. I am also that much
closer to China. (I will never forget the joyful
loving spirit of the seven masters and the wonder of
that experience!). It is two years and eight months
since my diagnosis and I am still cancer free!
Now in Hawaii I have gone to another level of
healing: the emotional plane. I am also still
detoxing from radiation. But my body is stronger
than before I had cancer and my energy is steady and
full. My emotions have been clearing away old
patterns. At first I cried a lot, during Wall Squats
especially. Now after 9 months in Hawaii I feel
refreshed and renewed and balanced on the emotional
plane. I went through some difficult times here and
the Chi-Lel practice sustained my energy and
emotional balance. I am instructing here and many
are responding. There is a strong request and energy
going toward creating a retreat center here for
Chi-Lel. The Aloha here is like being among Chi-Lel
people; no judgments, just a lot of love and joy and
support. I practice daily 3-4 hours a day and I am
curious to see where Chi-Lel is going to take me! My
whole life has changed dramatically for the better.
My physical health is now just a small part of this
change. I feel like I have something to give back,
just like the teachers that moved me on the video.
Now I am one of those teachers and I know why we
want to give back. My life feels totally fulfilled
as I make real the promise I made in the hospital.

I find what makes Chi-Lel so effective is the
sustained interest for the mind through the use of
the audio tales. This must be the key. I learned a
fact recently that it is now proven that the cells of the brain and the
cells of the immune system are THE SAME CELLS!
This means the immune system has a brain.
When we talk to our bodies, our bodies listen. This
is the wisdom and power of Chi-Lel. I am using this
in group healing as a focus as well as in my own
practice, using affirmations that focus on the
result, and how does the mind see this visually? I
can use on all levels: physically, emotionally and
spiritually. The mind is serving Chi. I am full of
gratitude daily for Chi-Lel and see this practice as
on the crest of the wave for mind-body healing.
Thank you, Mahalo Nui Loa, Dr.Pang Ming for
this gift and for my life. - http://www.chilel.com
Chi-Lel only takes 15 minutes and is
very easy for anyone to do - It is a series of slow
movements, like Tai-Chi but not as complex. Wall
squatting IS difficult and takes time and
patience. Fa-Chi can be done anywhere
anytime - simply cup your hands, palm and fingertips
facing, then slowly move your hands in and out like
a rubber band - feel the Chi!
