In traditional Chinese medicine, Falun Gong or Falun Dafa is a form of “cultivation system” or Chinese spiritual movement. It was developed in 1992 by Li Hongzhi. In 1998, the Communist government of China banned this movement saying that the teachings of Falun Dafa are “heretical”. There have been several cases of flagrant human right violations committed by this government against the practitioners and followers of Falun Dafa.

What makes Falun Dafa different from the other schools of qi gong is that this practice eschews the rituals in daily worship and places greater emphasis on theology and morality. Its core principles are Compassion, Patience, and Veracity. It has reshaped the perspective of existing schools of qi gong and played a huge role in the transformation of the lives of millions of people all over the world by promoting wisdom and good health.

Falun Dafa prohibits homosexuality, pre marital sex, drugs, alcohol, and smoking and puts an emphasis on ethical and moral behavior. These run counter to the aims of the practice and are known to bring in negative Karma.

If you are a practitioner of Falun Dafa, you should continuously abide by its principles of compassion, patience, and veracity. These principles are actually universal principles that anyone with a good heart and conscience shares. They help cultivate the whole aspects of your being: your body, soul, and spirit. But in order to achieve this, the practitioner must follow five sets of exercises that are very easy to learn and are made up of meditation and gentle movements. These exercises are meant to help you realize your goal, which is to cultivate your entire being. While each exercise has a profound inner meaning, they work extremely well in the treatment of stress and anxiety especially within the context of marijuana withdrawal.

The Goals of the Exercise

These exercises are designed to help increase your energy within a short period of time whilst simultaneously alleviating anxiety and stress.

The exercises are easy to learn and very simple. They focus on the meridians or pathways of energy in the body. They are designed to open and stretch all the meridians circulating throughout the body in order to smooth the flow of energy to areas where flow is obstructed. Practitioners will be able to boost their energy levels in no time at all when they perform these exercises.

How does falun dafa help people stop their dependence from marijuana?

The falun dafa exercises open up all the meridians in the body and this helps enhance a person’s well being and stamina. They can also help the mind focus on positive things and erase the negative energy in the mind and body. More importantly, the exercises put a greater emphasis on breathing and are gentle. These two factors help in the decrease of stress and anxiety in a person who has recently stopped smoking marijuana. In the spiritual aspect, the exercises can provide a person with support in case he finds himself relapsing from marijuana.
