  1. Wolf Messing - a Jedi by all standards.

    Here is an article by William Bodri explaining psychic powers / 3rd eye opening and the importance of not clinging to them: "[...]That's why only advanced meditators who have practiced meditation for years, and whose Chi channels or acupuncture meridians are thereby somewhat cleansed because of the prior groundwork, or people who are naturally gifted with emptiness achievement to some extent, accomplish any of the psychic abilities that are often reported to occur from this practice. Remember that the point is not to develop superpowers and go down that route, for the line between mental illness and superpowers is thin indeed. This is why true saints never emphasize them for you end up clinging to them and playing with them without even knowing it.[...]"
  2. New to the Dao

    Welcome I see those circular moving waves/holes in the sky, too. Along with tingling 3rd eye.. always wondered what it might be, cool to find someone who sees them too
  3. Life Changing Books

    The Nature of Personal Reality was also my start as a teenager into spirituality and even just reading the book lead to some life-changing experiences. There is definitely something in the way this book is written that directly speaks to your inner self, or better say that connects you to this inner self.
  4. And that's because of Plato right?
  5. Third eye sound tone

    You can look up the solfeggio tone scale.. they may resonante with the chakras. Out of all those different frequency healing tones those tones really worked for me
  6. Flying Phoenix Qigong is great in balancing ones energies. You can easily learn it from DVD and there's a huge thread here on daobums.. I can really recommend it, as to me it seems like it's specifically designed to harmonize the whole energy system, quieting the mind, grounding and healing in general
  7. Had the same experience some years ago when I started feeling energy. Shaking, erection, eyes rolling backwards, tongue moving upwards, heat and sweat.. Don't be scared of it, I had some serious fears of energy getting stuck etc. which _then_ resulted in it being blocked in some parts of the body.. The trick is to not force anything, as Jeff said simply reside in it, be quiet and let everything go it's natural way..
  8. A practitioner's responsibility

    Great thread responsibility / response ability..
  9. Q's...ONLY Teachers may Answer.

    Are there practices in Cajun similar to those in daoism or what is generally done to build up/restore energy? And do they work/treat with their own energies or are they using "universal" energy, like in reiki for example or both?
  10. What happens to suicides may be helpful
  11. Solid Qigong videos/youtubes

    Seems very powerful to me, I just did it twice because I am doing other practices in my daily routine and prefer to have a real life teacher, but this and his other stuff seems very powerful and heart opening
  12. throat issues

    Everything that needs healing will come to the surface, including believes, thoughts and illnesses that just don't suit your new energy. You will have to let let some old stuff go and open up for new one. True self love needs to be discovered. The easiest way to get through this is probably to just let it happen and to trust in the process, knowing that there are invisible forces helping you everytime you need support, just waiting for your call. Wishing you the best
  13. zhan zhuang feedback

    I am practicing something similar to Yi-zi-chan (probably the same roots and same basic-stances) and my teacher told me if the shaking gets too heavy one should suppress the movements to some extent, but not entirely (as it will stop by itself after some time). In my experience, I would say that it is also important in which body-area the shaking occurs. Usually I like to suppress the shaking and just relax as this seems to allow the Chi to accumulate and penetrate deeper in the body/cells - which also results in increased stillness of mind - , this was a good way to go for me, except when shaking of my whole head/neck area started and my head began to move left/right/forward/backward in a very vigorous way. When I suppress (I am still at that stage) this movements Chi easily stagnates at head-area, which results in very unpleasent states.. I´m gonna ask my teacher for advice, but till now it feels more safe for me to (fully) allow this shaking.
