The Power of Chi-Lel
Connection - Ginny's Story.
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!
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 go.
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

Here is my complete Testimonial, up to date,
as of 4-30-2000.
"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.
- Cancer Diet
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.
Cell Rescue Therapy
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!
Mind-Body Connection - the Source of Illness
Discovered and Released.
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 before.
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 week.
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 validity.

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
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
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.
Instructor - 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
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.
Chan conducts workshops across
the USA, China and Europe.
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
Thank you, Mahalo Nui Loa,
Dr.Pang Ming for this gift and for my life. -
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!
