VIDEO TRANSCRIPTION – How To Not Take On Other People’s Emotions & Energy
Hi guys. David J. Coon here with Qigong Awareness. Just wanted to talk to you about what it is that a foreign energy is. Somebody asked me recently, “What is a foreign energy?” Foreign energy is an energy that’s not yours. It’s somebody else’s. It’s that guy’s over there. It’s that woman’s over there. It’s that negative person on the bus. It’s that person who works in the cubicle next to you. It’s an energy that you’re not necessarily used to, maybe it’s slightly different even if you are … have an energy that’s similar, this energy’s a little bit different.
It’s the one that you get off the telephone with and your head hurts after having that conversation with your mother or your boss or you get on the bus and people are being a certain way, that they have a certain vibe and it doesn’t really vibrate with you. You don’t really sensate with it. It’s like a dischord. There’s a disharmony there rather than it being harmonious, you get on a bus or something, you’re like, “Wow, these people are really cool. I feel really great.” You, for whatever reason, attract a situation where you get on a bus, for example, and there are seven negative people on there. They’re being negative, they’re vibing with something you’re really not interested in, and when you leave the bus, you feel negative yourself. You’re thinking things you don’t want to be thinking. You’re feeling very heavy. You’re feeling toxic. Pretty much everybody has felt this type of experience, but not many people really have an understanding that there’s a difference between your energy and other people’s energies.
It’s really important to sort it out. Inside of your own being and inside of your own self, there is what we call in Qigong practice, your center. That center is like a capsule and it’s very energetic in nature. It’s very important to, first of all, identify the fact that it’s there because it’s your inner temple. And, second to identify, what is it that’s in there and what, out of the things that are in there, what is mine? What’s mine? Because what is yours, you have to work through and you have to process in a certain. What’s not yours, you actually cannot work through and process in the same way. If it was yours, you’d be able to process it and work through something. But if it’s not yours, it’s just kind of glommed onto you and what you really need to do is remove it.
What so many people have done is they just put it in the trunk. They carry it around with them. This makes for a situation where the mental clarity is lost, confused, spacey. You can go and have this experience, like I said, with a friend or a mother or a client that you’re working with and you walk away and the energy just feels … you feel kind of sick. Or if you go spend a certain amount of time, like I said, on a bus or in a particular state or a particular neighborhood or whatever it is. You walk away, this energy’s on you.
What we want to learn how to do is we want to learn how to clear out our own space. Again, we want to learn how to identify where our space is, what does it feel like to be in our space, our own energy space, and how do we begin to identify what’s not ours. Then next, how do we clear it off? The questions was asked to me recently, “Is it possible to do that?” Of course, it is. But it is a skilled practice and in most Qigong schools and societies and various schools of this nature, meditation schools and so on, a lot of these practices have actually been kept secret and they are saved for the greater depths within the school, for the people who have trained and have a deeper knowledge and so on.
It’s my belief that these teachings now need to come out of hiding. They need to come out of being secret and they need to be brought to every single individual who wants to know about them, because you make up the world and it’s you that is going to change the direction of what’s happening on the planet. But in order to do that, you have to change your vibration from the inside out. You have to change your own energy experience from the inside out. It’s not as much about going out into your world and doing all of these different things, even though you’re going to do that. It’s actually about changing from the inside out.
A great place to begin, a powerful, potent place to begin is learning how to clear out foreign energies. Again, identifying your internal space. Where that is and what that is. Then, cleaning out what’s not yours. Clearing out what’s not yours.
I’m going to be doing a webinar on this subject. It’s going to be coming up on a Friday night, coming up, November 20. Friday night. 7:00 pm East Coast Time. That’s 5:00 pm Mountain Time and that’s going to be 4:00 pm California/West Coast Time. I would love for you to join me. If you’d like to learn more about what foreign energies are, how to identify them. Perhaps more importantly, how to identify your own center and then, how to clear those foreign energies out of your center.
Please join me. It’s going to be an hour program. It’s $15. You can go to qigongawareness.com. You can go to the webinars page. There’s a webinars page there and you can click on a button that will take you to a link that will allow you to pay for the program and you’ll get a link in return to join in.

Thanks so much for tuning in and listening a little bit about what it is that a foreign energy is. I hope to see you more again soon. Thank you so much.
Medical Qigong Workshop Testimonials
“I recently participated in a weekend Medical QiGong Intensive with David Coon, and I returned to my practice full of life force and eager to assimilate my experience into my treatment approach. The sessions were well organized and well balanced between informative and “hands-on” practical, reminding us that true qigong is something quite beyond exercise! I look forward to future workshops. David is a monument to his own mastery, and his commitment to practicing and teaching medical qigong may very well effect in this country a resurrection of a much neglected branch of Chinese Medicine. We here in North Carolina are fortunate to have David and Tanya now in our area.”
Robin R. Whitlow, Dipl. Ac., Dipl. CH. – Hillsborough, North Carolina
“David’s Medical Qigong Intensive workshop was superb! He was extremely skilled at being able to communicate concepts and ideas with insight and clarity. The activities he chose were very helpful and allowed each person to grow from their current place of understanding and level of skill. I personally came away from the workshop with a much greater depth of understanding that will inform my personal and professional practice. A couple of ‘nuggets’ have already resulted from applying some of his suggestions. I heartily recommend this workshop!”
Diane Gross, DOM, L.Ac., Stillpoint Acupuncture and author of The Art of Personal Alchemy: Transform Your Emotional Lead into Gold. – Greensboro, NC
“Approximately 25% of my practice as a Licensed Acupuncturist is comprised of Military Vets who are faced with multiple physical and mental/emotional challenges. One of my goals for 2015 was to begin learning Medical Qigong to enhance my own practice, my focus and energetic strength and to give my most challenging patients – VA Vets – another holistic/non-pharmaceutical tool to manager their physical/mental/emotional stress. The weekend intensive workshop that I attended in Raleigh provided me with the basics and enough real-time review to start my own Medical Qigong practice. I am looking forward to continuing my studies with David Coon. “
-Linda T., Licensed Acupuncturist – Cary, NC
“I can best describe my experience at the Medical Qigong Intensive with three words: Acceptance! Energy! Peace! The experience created an atmosphere of full acceptance so that I as a lay person was accepted as a peer by the other participants who were all experienced practitioners of alternative healing therapies. Had I not seen and felt it for myself, I’m not sure I could have believed in the existence of so much energy which exists around us, between us and within us and can be channeled for healing, daily living and peace. I am a retired speech therapist who worked in very difficult environments in which at various times my physical being was in danger, and much toxic energy was constantly present. As a result, I have carried that energy with me into retirement. I learned many techniques to help me to begin to cleanse my body of the toxic energy and replace it with Chi. Had I had those skills at the beginning of my practice, I am sure my life would be much different now. I am beginning to feel Peace not felt previously. At the close of the session, I set a year goal which I was not convinced I could meet. With the energy I feel at this point already, I am nearly one-sixth of my way to that goal after just four sessions!
Thank you David and Tanya for allowing me to participate in the session.”
Keith Bullock, Retired Speech Therapist – Jonesboro, Georgia
“In coming to this Medical Qi Gong Intensive, I was seeking a teacher with a genuine desire to share and guide in their knowledge and experiences. A teacher that exhibits true passion & dedication to the art of Qi Gong. Further more, someone who has a calm way of conveying, engaging and navigating all who are there in learning to cultivate Qi for oneself as well as to help others. It was a true pleasure to attend, meet and learn from David, a Qi Gong Master that embodies all the above mentioned. Will look forward to the next Qi Gong learning experience! With gratitude, Jeanie”
Jeanie Tham, L.Ac., Dipl. OM, Licensed Acupuncturist & Board Certified Herbalist – New Jersey/New York
“David Coon is a true teacher. His thorough discussions were filled with valuable information. His explanations throughout the class were both relatable and one step ahead of any question that may have arisen as he was teaching. I have since started my own qi gong practice, and have implemented Medical Qigong into my Acupuncture Practice.”
Jodi Rose M.S., LAc, Licensed Acupuncturist – Chapel Hill, NC
“As an acupuncturist, keeping up with CEU requirements is sometimes a chore. On more than one occasion I’ve sat through droning presentations of rehashed information, just hoping for something useful, and watching the clock. Not so with David’s Qigong workshop! From the first moment to the last I was engaged and fascinated – with a hundred ideas running through my head of how to better help my patients. I know I have to cultivate my own practice first, but I’ve known that for a long time. After this seminar I finally feel like I have a starting place and a foundation that will help me prioritize my own practice and slowly evolve into a better practitioner for my patients. Thanks David!”
Anaya Palay, DAOM, Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine – Panama City Beach , FL
“This Medical Qigong Intensive with David J. Coon was very informative and lots of fun! I learned so many ways to help restore my energy and well-being, as well as my patients. The instructor was very kind and willing to teach us a great amount of information in a short period of time. David inspired me! I am already adding Medical Qigong into my everyday life and acupuncture practice!”
