My sensitivity to this feeling has increased dramatically over the past months. I can move my hands rhythmically to music or just focus on the feeling and with a bit of time i eventually am able to repel my hands, as if two magnets have been set in the space. I know its not the drugs hehe cuz i do this sober all the time. I can create bigger balls of energy and at one time, even created it with another person. What a beautiful experience. Id like to know if other people have this experience? I tell people but countless refuse to believe me. I know this is a real thing I’d just like some feedback! anythings welcome! Peace and Love
its an imaginative force that multiplies some type of sensory function, imo
i guess, maybe to put it into perspective, centering your energy/chi means that ball of energy lay active at the abdomen/ base chakra. opening higher chakras means taking that ball of energy and creatively/&/imagining lifting the energy throughout the energy body while dispersing it to maintain balance or weigh more on a certain energy hot spot~
hmm thats interesting. last night especially….whenver i would breathe and focus the breath out through my hands the magnetism would immediately increase. it was unbelievable…yet not so surprising. i wonder if theres a way to absorb energy from my surroundings and help focus it. cuz you say all this energy is coming from within?
I think we have access to as much energy as we can imagine, but like @josephm said it begs to be concentrated into purposeful expression (ok that’s not exactly what he said). I think one’s personal aura is creative expression in itself so moving your energy to different centers of your body other than your hands allows your presence to become a part of the inspiration portion of the energy loop. It can be channeled in any way really. I fall back on singing when I don’t know what to do. @dotcom
creative expression has actually been on my mind a lot recently. I feel as though im discovering my ability to create and this is just one outlet/expression. so i relate to your saying “it begs to concentrated into purposeful expression”. Thanks a lot!
there needs to be more verifiable proof b4 you accept you are projecting anything and not simply becoming more aware, as in, your awareness is expanding in sensitivity and depth, especially when you focus on you hands,
try this, feel your thumbs on both hands,
– become aware and dont think, dont try, dont focus , open it up to feeling-only,
– let your awareness just flicker in and throughout your thumbs, now,
– feel them even deeper,
feel your pointer finger,
– let your awareness just flicker in and throughout your thumbs, now,
– feel them even deeper,
feel both your thumbs and your point fingers at the same time,
– let your awareness just flicker in and throughout both your thumbs and pointers,
– feel them even deeper,
—without losing any finger awareness— feel the [space] between your thumbs and forefingers on both hands,
^^this will blow your mind^^
concentrate all that energy in those two empty spaces and know, this is not magic, this is not supernatural, what you are experiencing is awareness expansion, and the reason why you feel the intensity so strongly between those fingers is because there are more nerve endings in the those fingers than your entire spine, so it is vveeerrryyy sensitive
it very well may be an awareness expansion. and definitely an increase in my sensitivity…i said that myself the other day as a matter of fact. my sensitivity to this feeling has increased dramatically. my hands tingle all the time whenever i breath out and focus on my hands, then with maybe two more breaths the magnetism is there and able to be easily perceived.
I’ve been able to get that energy flow moving between my hands for years now. It’s like you described. It’s also a warm up for the practice of Reiki energy healing. My ex claimed that it helped with headaches. She lie down, I’d get the flow of energy going with my hands about an inch away from the sides of her head. When the feeling got strong enough I would move my hands in a pedaling motion. She said it felt like a whirlpool inside her head, that caused her to relax into a 20 min. nap. When she woke, she claimed her headache was gone. Research Reiki for more info.
im curious as to what Reiki is truly about and if anyone can become a healer? or use their abilities for healing whenever/how to get training. i might try this on someone next time they have a headache and see if i have any effect. i feel like i could definitely focus this sensation/energy places especially now with it being so perceptible and noticeable. its mindfucking me how easily i can feel it. makes me wonder if im crazy..cuz no one seems to believe me when i tell them
@dotcom, I have this friend named Steve, and the first night I ever met him he came up to me and had me put my hand out, and put his hand above it, parallel to it, about 6 inches away. He proceeded to look extremely focused, staring at his hand, asking me if I feel that, and the top of my hand started feeling extremely warm. That was pretty mind blowing. There were a great many other times where he made me(and others) close their hand into a fist just by employing his hand energies and never once directly touching anyone’s hands. I still don’t know if that was “real” or some intensive suggestion/mind-fuckery, and whether he knows either.
Check this video out:
If your interested in knowing more about that man, his name is John Chang (not his real name, just an alias), and he’s able to do those things through a practice called Mo Pai Nei Kung. He had a couple western students, and one by the name of Kosta Danaos wrote a very in-depth book about John and his experiences with him called The Magus of Java. It’s a good read; learned a lot.
I remember that book from years ago but never got a chance to look into it, I guess now is the time. Thanks man.
Do you mean this part?:
“I thought at the time that he was testing me. Later I would dis-
cover that John had never read the Tao Te Ching. “Well,” I replied,
“he says that ch’i has both yin and yang components, and that it is
the interaction between the two that makes life possible.”
Such feedback between the positive and negative poles of exist-
ence was the prime component of our lifeforce; when we as a species
begin to understand this phenomenon from a technical perspective,
we will begin to understand life itself. (I would later discover, how-
ever, that our bodies are briefly capable of storing both pure yang
and pure yin ch’i in different areas, though this state of nonequilibrium
is subject to entropy.)
“Interaction.” John rolled the word around on his tongue. “Like
electricity, positive and negative?”
“Not quite correct.” He paused. “But you know, one time I let a
student of mine hook me up to a voltmeter and an amperometer. He
registered no voltage, but I blew the amp-meter off the scale. I burned
“Are you telling me that ch’i has amperage but does not have
“I think so. For example, I can withstand household electrical
current indefinitely without pain, but I cannot light up a lightbulb. I
have tried, many times.”
I thought about that. Clinical investigation in medical laborato-
ries seems to indicate that the electrical resistance of the skin changes
markedly at acupuncture points. There are “electrical acupuncture
machines” that make use of this phenomenon to locate the points
for neophytes. This is an indication that ch’i and voltage are some-
how inversely related (though other explanations have been offered).
But I was to find out years later that John was wrong. His ch’i in fact
displayed neither voltage nor amperage; rather, it was an entirely
different phenomenon, based on very different forces.”
Later on in the book, specifically chapter 7, Kosta goes more into the nature of yin and yang chi, and for the most part regards them each as their own separate physical force. He describes yang chi as being similar to solar energy, and yin chi he describes it to be similar to a force related to that of gravity. It is the combination of yin and yang that produces something similar to electricity.
That documentary, which I’m pretty sure is the second one and the one Kosta helped set up, was made long after Kosta had that conversation with John, where John said that he wasn’t able to light up lightbulbs. In that documentary they were trying to get a reading or have John transmit the bio-electricity he was creating into different devices such as voltmeters and LEDs, and the only thing they got it working with were the LEDs. From what I understand, LEDs and normal lights bulbs (incandescent) are different, or at least work differently. I think when John said what he said, he was speaking from the perspective of trying to had lit up an incandescent light bulb, which uses electricity differently than LEDs. Personally I believe that the bio-electricity John produces is small per say, but was just enough to light the LED because the LED doesn’t need that much electricity to light up.
Hoped this helped :) If you have any more question, feel free to ask them. I’d love to discuss more things from the book.
Ohh okay I see. That makes more sense. The LED scene was from a second filming during which one of the brothers had already died. Still though, if chi produces electricity, but does not register voltage but does register amperage… Well then, What the hell IS IT?! That’s probably a highly simplistic question considering Yin and Yang chi are different. I know nothing on the subject, but perhaps different mixtures create different energies altogether ( considering they seem to be regarded as fundamental forces in the universe).
There are still some parts in the book that seem far-fetched, such as John Chang’s Master killing 100+ people with only the power developed through training… It sounds like something out of Star Wars or a Kung Fu movie… But hey, just because over here in the Western World we have been pounded with reductionism and and Newtonian Physics doesn’t mean that those things aren’t possible…
Yea, some of those stories are VERY out there, as with other taoist things I’ve been reading :) If true though, it really does make me wonder about the unknown aspects of the human body and the potential untapped power it holds. They say it’s within all of us, but not everyone can obtain it. The people who have however, spent many, many years doing specialize training to reach such levels, doing hours upon hours of a specific exercise. Giving that amount of time and effort to such intense training, I think, would be almost impossible for anyone operating within western society. You would have to be pretty well off (financially), in order to do such things, or completely remove yourself from westernized life and live as they did way back when.
Regarding chi, it is a mystery, mainly due to the fact that it’s not easily perceived, and unperceived by most. What you said about chi was correct, at least along the lines of taoist thought. I bought this book by Damo Mitchell called Daoist Nei Gong, and in it he goes a lot into the taoist theory regarding chi, unlike the Magus of Java where it’s mainly just a narrative of past experiences, analysis of those experiences, and stories. The taoist believed that different combinations of yin and yang, as stated in the I Ching, produces many different energy variations (as you stated), which then produce the Wu Xing, or the five elements, of which create heaven and earth.
Not easily… These energy arts (specifically qigong and neigong) were kept secret for many years, passed down only from grandmasters to apprentices within their own lineage so the teachings weren’t tarnished, or used for “evil” purposes. As I understand, once these teachings started to leak out or became available to the general public, some lineages created false teachings and started spreading those around in order to throw people off. So the individual learning these systems would have to cipher through bullshit teachings, and find actual legit ones in order to get anywhere.
Another issue is the fact that it’s kind of dangerous to practice, well, any in-depth art or method by yourself without the instruction of a teacher or someone experienced (ex. yoga, body building, martial arts). You could potentially do a lot of damage to yourself. Specifically regarding Mo Pai, I’m pretty sure it stated somewhere in the book that many students died in the process of working with the energy bodies, thus making Mo Pai Nei Kung what it is today. I remember reading something that John said about how a person should be fully prepared to die and understand the risk of doing such training. Doing something wrong could end badly for you, especially if your by yourself.
But even with all that said, I think a person could still get pretty far on their own practicing such arts, but not to levels such as John Chang. Definitely need a teaching for that. He is actually kind of special in some senses because he possesses and utilizes both yin and yang chi within his dantien. That’s kind of what sets Mo Pai apart from other lineages per say, in which most other people only work with yang chi. He goes more into that in book. A person can still accomplish many great feats only working with yang.
Answering your question of how, I would say with a lot of research, finding legit systems that can be done for the most part alone.
Also, Damo Mitchell, the guy I mentioned before, did a QA for TheTaoBums.com May of this year, and in it answered a similar question to the one you asked. Here’s the thread and here’s the pdf of the interview questions and answers. Check out questions 7 and 8.
i wrote a poem about what you talk…..
My thoughts are clouds of energy,
That float around my brain.
They don’t belong to me.
If I own they bring me pain.
So i watch these little clouds,
As they float around my brain.
Glowing different colours,
always beautiful, never mundane.
So i watch the clouds patiently,
As I manipulate and control,
I hold these clouds in front of me,
And let their energies unfold,
I try not attach myself to feelings
for they don’t belong to me,
I simply notice the glowing colours,
So I may find what i can see.
I keep looking until i know,
if this cloud is needed or not.
If its needed then i keep it,
If its not then it gets forgot.
I take this little cloud,
filled with bad ideas and memories,
and i let it float away,
because if i don’t it will make enemies.
When i get a nice green cloud,
filled with love and lots of joy,
filled with lots of good ideas,
that i’m sure i’ll soon deploy,
then i keep that cloud inside of me,
i plant it so it may grow,
first it changes into a seed,
Then a tree that changes the status quo.
You can do the same with your thoughts,
But you’ve got to stop being a slave!
Doing what you’ve been told,
So you can get your minimum wage!
Give up your fears and hatred!
And follow me into the dark!
We don’t need candles or torches,
Because we’ve got lights inside our hearts.
