Yes, practice GOT I then ease into GOT II. Do the sequential in the order listed in GOT II although one CAN do it stand alone. Should see a boost in it when done in order. Initially don't spend as much time with the Sequential and the Spirit Circle Walking until you are used to the shifting introduced in GOT I.

Got it. Diggin' it.

:)

Received it Thursday and have watched it several times already. I like the revisions on the SECA DVD, too, BTW.

Focusing mostly on GOT I right now (I seem to resonate most strongly with the first half of GOT I at this point in my practice) but I find myself sporatically doing GOT II movements during the day. I do SECA after crawling in bed most nights (for a month now) and try to hold awareness on my dantien while going to sleep. I fall into sleeping qigong once in a while -- pretty easy to tell when because I radiate heat like a woodstove... :)

By the way, Ya Mu -- Saturday night, after days of manifesting two bubbles & gloves without "feeling anything," I set my intent on gloves after sitting for two hours and instantly realized I was already wearing them. Pretty freaking cool, I'm telling you! Thank you for your guidance.

If you practice then the manifesting is not difficult.
Hang onto your hat - it gets better. You will do are doing well with this system. Do try the Sequential Energy Center Activation, Balancing, and Dimensional Expansion outside as well. The foot move is important. It is really mind-boggling how this one SECABDE move can re-charge and expand a person's energy body.

I just got back from a trip to the beach - Hilton Head Island, South Carolina and I feel the need to report on practicing G.O.T 1 and 2 on the beach.

Of course Hilton Head island is a very unique beach in that during low tide and in sime places even during high tide there is a huge expanse of solid beach available to walk on, run on, bike on, etc - by huge during low tide most areas of the beach offer several hundred yards of well packed sand until you get to the waters edge. It seems to me to be more beach space than any other beach that I have visited.

So every time I visit this beach I practice a great deal of Stillness-Movement both in the condo I stay in and on the beach. However, the G.O.T. movements on the beach seem to be different than any other area that I have practiced these movements.

The Qi gets extremely thick - very fast. For instance during G.O.T 1 by the time I am doing the "Wall of Qi" the Qi is beginning to get so thick that it is as if my hands are pushing through a very thick paste then as I grab Qi from the earth with my fingertips and pull it upward and then float down on it - it's more like I have to push my hands downward. This is incredible stuff - as I shift dimensionally very quickly and thank goodness no one stops to talk to me they just observe as I am not certain that I would be able to talk.

Now I have been practicing G.O.T. 1 and 2 for some time - I attended many workshops and supplemented with the DVD (G.O.T. 1) - I found the DVD to be very helpful in that Michael broke the moves down and you can study 3 at a time. That way you learn those 3 moves and then go on and learn additional moves (3 at a time) and eventually you can put it all together. The G.O.T. is much simpler to learn then many of the Martial Arts Kata that I have learned - several of the Kempo Kata have 75 - 100 or more moves in the Kata. By comparison, The G.O.T. 1 has about 18 moves and G.O.T 2 has a few more when we consider the Sequential Energy Center Activation Sequence but both are something that you can achieve by attending a workshop or two and by supplementing your study with the DVD. Then when you think you've got it -- maybe attend one more workshop and fine tune things - then they are yours to practice whenever you want.

Now - G.O.T 2 on the beach. Well I think there must be a huge energy vortex at Hilton Head - the Qi gets so thick with G.O.T 2 that it almost hurt my shoulders to push the Qi and I again shifted energetically very quickly. To try to compare this to my home practice - I like to practice the G.O.T each one in series of 3. So I do each one three times. However, on the Hilton Head Beach - once was enough. As I said - it would have been tough to hve a discussion with anyone and I could feel this huge surge of energy and CALMNESS. I was so Calm - my wife saw me afterwards and said - Damn, what have you been doing? Just some Qigong! Are you going to answer me or not? I thought I did....followed by a big shhhew - me releasing air.

So I highly recommending learning and practicing either or both of the G.O.T series as i have never found any other Movement Qigong to come close to giving me the buzz they do. Also if you can practice in Nature - you will doubly enjoy it. The trees will begin to get involved, birds come over to see what you are doing, on more than one occasion I have had a hawk appear overhead and swirl in the Qi that I was working - pretty cool stuff.

What about Stillness- Movement on Hilton Head? I will tell you about that soon -- as well as the group of horses that lined up for some Taoist Medicine....


Thanks,

Way cool, Brion! Thank you for sharing.

Hilton Head is really nice when it isn't crowded. Same goes for the Grand Strand around Mrytle Beach (especially the Northern end, up near Cherry Grove).

I have been attracting squirrels, which drives my beagle-ish hound crazy. :) Almost every time I do GOT I, I find one standing perfectly still and watching me -- until my beerhound notices, that is.

I wanna hear more!

The calmness that kempomaster was referring to and the attraction of animals that you are referring to; this is common among practitioners of this system. I believe kempomaster has mentioned hawks. Hawk medicine is very powerful and is an aspect of these movements. Just about every time I practice animals come up to sit in the energy, usually more than one type of animal. Horses LOVE this.

Whenever I practice Gift of the Tao it gains the attention of the surrounding animals that live nearby. Rabbits have come close acting very curious, as well as hummingbirds and one robin that always drops by to check out the energy going on.

Just a few days ago a baby deer (model "Bambi") had fallen down and was found lying against the foundation of my house. It was breathing but didn't react to anything. You can imagine the stir it caused with my three kids..

I did maybe half hour Qi projecting to it but didn't notice any improvement. My guess was it had lost its mother and was badly starving and/or dehydrated. I tried to get it to drink some water.

Then a grown up deer showed up on a nearby field, observing us. My daughters wanted to take the baby to (what we thought might have been) its mother. What I only heard later was that the baby had actually started kicking and trying to walk on its own when they took her closer to where the adult deer was, before that she had been completely limp. Don't know the end of the story, at that point we had to be moving along. Hopefully the kid made it :)

Forgot to mention that I'm in it. OK, it's a bit part (as in "you only see bits of me") but now I'm part of history!

(Now that I think about it, I was in a Kris Kristofferson movie and in a Mt. Dew commercial, too, in equally significant roles...)



Ya Mu, I like addition to the release version of the SECAB&DE disc. It is easier to follow now, I think.

If I had of known you were already a movie star I would have made sure to get more of you in the film (promotional value, you know) - credits: with A. Seeker, previous film credits with Kris Kristofferson and Mt Dew Commercial...

Rest assured you did make a difference - sounds like you called the mother up and helped the baby.
When we do these Gift of Tao movements to raise our vibrations animals always respond; when we do the qi projection based on this raising of vibration all life responds.
